Tawi-Tawi's Sunrise (I just simply love it!)

On the way to Tango Island
Sunrise! It is a  rapturous feeling to see the beauty and wonder of the world. And one the most astonishing and serene wonders is contemplating on the beauty of sunrise and sunset. This simple errand- watching sunrise- will give you the peace of mind and contentment that most of us need in order to break free. And that is what people need today. 

We are living in a fast pace modern world where every gadgets are constantly changing and emerging. When you go to big cities, everything seems to move fast, everybody seems to be in a hurry, everyone is competitive and blatant thing is that you need money  to survive.  Everything we do always require haste and speed. It is inevitable  not to spend a little time with our family and enjoy life that does not require money to spend. But is it not wonderful to feel free and be like a child again? The moment I see the sun rises, it gives the perfect feeling of ecstasy and fantasy- like a child dreaming of a Neverland.

Here are some breathtaking photos of sunrise in Tawi-Tawi which I love the most :

 In that far away land lies a beautiful kingdom that awaits us...

Good morning sunshine! Lucky are those who have  seen such a beautiful scene. Oh, I simply love the moment! At least I have seen a magnificent sunrise before I go  to that far away kingdom (hope to see more of this)...

On the way to Languyan...

Here are other striking photos of sunrise taken from the beautiful place of Bongao, tawi-Tawi:

God is Watching Us

These past few months, I have been wondering why I got loads of baggages. I have so many plans that I'd like to undertake, however, I am always failing. But It is quite amazing how I managed to have other plans ( take note: improving level of plans). And with each plan, it never fails to amaze me. I don't usually get disappointed with the failures I have after my plans fail; however, I noticed that I get exhausted of waiting and planning for things that I'd like to achieve and have. 

Every night, as I lay down to bed, I talk to God about many things. I talk to him about my day- how tiring and inspiring it was. I talk to him about my fuss on relationships with family, friends and even strangers. I also get to talk to him about my plans on so many things like travel, places I wanna see, people I wanna be with and people I want to help and inspire. I never miss to ask him to make my dreams come true. I have a lot of things to say to him. But when I get so tired, I can't  even bid him goodnight. I just remember talking to him and realized that it is a morning sunshine already. When it is time to go to work, I always forget to pray and thank him. But when I realized that I offended him, I pray silently but honestly, it is always hasty. This is really sad. I am bad. Forgive me...

Sometimes, I wish God can talk to us. What if he can talk to us? What would he tells us? I wonder how he is going to respond to all my prayers. I wonder what he's going to say about my plans that are always changing. What is he going to say about the person I became? How is he going to assess me as a daughter and as his child? Did I fail him? I want to  know if He is happy with all that I am and I became. Have I been good or bad? 

I get really excited with the thoughts that God can talk to us (I mean literally talk as in chatting with God). Who wouldn't be? Right? And imagine if we can see His face (musing).

I remember having taken this photo and it had a semblance of a myth character , Zeus (Take a look closer).  I am wondering  what if God can really talk to us and what  if, we can see His face. Will this picture have a semblance of Him? That day when I took this photo is life changing moment for me. I told myself that I am lucky to have seen this photo, because it made me realized that someone is watching over me- that God is always been there for me, and that He is proud of me ( this moment was during my graduation day). What else could I ask for?

I think if God can talk to us, the world will be a peaceful and beautiful place to live. If He had a face, maybe, people will be afraid to commit a sin (who wouldn't if you see the most beautiful face in the universe?). But I am still happy that even if we cannot hear His voice, I know that He is listening attentively to all our prayers and queries even if it seems nonsense; even if we cannot see Him, I know that He is watching us, because He loves us. God is so Amazing and Great! Nothing compares to Him.

A Beautiful Saturday in Sanga-Sanga, Tawi-Tawi

It was a beautiful  Saturday when we visited the serene place of Sanga-Sanga. Sanga-Sanga is part of Bongao municipality. The place is famous because it is known as the "Tawi-Tawi airport".

While I was walking along the famous bridge, I noticed the group of boys who are having fun bridge diving (6-8 meters in height) . It was full of fun! Then, I realized that this moment taught me some important lessons in life.


Then, I saw a man who was looking at a distant. I realized that so many things have been offered to us, however we are too busy looking for other things. We become sad and unhappy knowing that we don't know what we really want, when in fact, it is right in front of us. But sad to say, it is gone now...

What's with the dark and light? I guess, you would not appreciate it if you have never been in the dark; because it is when you are in the dark, you wish light will appear to vanish all your sorrow and pain.


As I was passing by, I have seen people talking, laughing and musing. Some are alone reminiscing. Then, it made me curious as to what goes to their minds...

Upon seeing this photo, I realized how much I have missed my cats. I am so glad that they have found a home and family in us.
