Yesterday was #WorldGratitudeDay and I would like to thank God for keeping me alive and still surviving each day sa kabila ng mga pagsubok, pagkakamali, kahinaan at pagharap sa mga bagay na dapat harapin. Nagpapasalamat ako dahil binigyan Niya ako ng pamilya na nandyan lagi para sa akin at nagmamahal. Nagpapasalamat din ako sa mga kaibigang tunay ang intensyon sa akin at nandyan simula sa umpisa na hindi ako iniiwan sa kabila ng pagiging matigas ng aking ulo. Thankful din ako sa mga taong hindi naniniwala at sabihin nalang natin na hindi ako gusto o may hinanakit sa akin, dahil sa kanila na push ko ang sarili ko na mas maging matatag at matapang dahil alam ko sa sarili ko na hindi ako tulad ng tingin nila sa akin. Nagpapasalamat ako sa mga bagay na nagpaiyak at nagbigay ng pagsubok, dahil dun narealize ko na buhay pa ako, nalagpasan ko ang mga yun. Sa mga tao at bagay na nagturo sa akin ng mga aral sa buhay na magagamit ko para maging mas mabuting tao o maging mabuti. Lahat ng bagay may dahilan at iniisip ko nangyayari yung mga bagay na yun para malagpasan at maging aral. Salamat sa lahat. Salamat Lord. 🙏
Swipe left to see how Adrian went from friendzoned to bachelor finalist.
Mid bald fade for @adrianmendoza11 with a loose 5 on top for a spiked up look. Straight hair, especially on Asian clients tend to have lots of dark spots. I learned to be careful and always flick up and back and not to dig too far into the scalp. I learned to use the corner of the clipper to get rid of those unfriendly dark spots when doing detail work.
Fun fact(s) 👆: Adrian and I are second cousins and grew up together ever since the Grey St. days when every Filipino was living in the same appartments. It's been amazing to see such a chubby ball transform into a nimble and athletic basketball superstar 🏀. Not only did the chubby ball change physically but he's also developed a keen intelligence that I say no one can ever take away from you. From being my accomplice at Chinese Buffets by tricking the hosts and tucking the knives underneath the plexiglass 😂 and have them reach for the utensils to talking about school and the future now, it's always a great time. Have another great year at McMaster 😎 .
Stay fresh 👊 .
Today is the first day of fall in Seattle so you know I'll be singing this song until the sun comes out again next May. Who else loves to sing loudly to OPM songs?! ;) #seattlelife#HereComesTheRain#aegis
What do you see staring back from the void?
I. The night has come, so bring my candle (Pagpatabang)
Stifling a yawn,
over my shoulder I look.
His brogans loitered by the door
for respite beckoned,
you help me,
and I help you
Nasa-an ang utang-na-loob
that was promised?
We look ‘round,
but all is muted.
They are baying whispers muffled,
drowned in a downpour,
am I lost?
Am I awake?
My home is here no more,
Am I lost -
II. When I blew out the flame (Harvest Moon)
As from the vine to your lips
The phoenix has -
no phoenix am I,
but as Prometheus,
fixated on an empty jar.
(The scale remains without agitation.)
into a gathering cocoon,
the unnamable -
of the autumn sage I suckle within my fingers,
woven in the sleeve of a sweater.
for the apple under the pillow,
the Dark Mother takes my hand.
III. That you may see (Samhain)
I know you, under the guise.
We lived here once, you remember,
sowing murmurances lost boys on the moon -
It is bare again.
Take of my goblet,
and when time nears to dream,
the pilgrimage hastes -
Death, the mother of beauty.
How my lungs seep of a charged vitality:

I should introduce myself. I'm Kaycee Sevilla-Lanter, owner of @flowflowerco, and now, @filipinofeelings. I'm originally from Quezon City, Philippines but moved to Seattle in 2015 when I married the love of my life, Tully, whom I met in grad school in Los Angeles (long story! ;)). I love the new life I have here with him, but there is still a part of me that misses and loves the Philippines and all the friends and family I left behind. And so the idea for Filipino Feelings was born. I needed to express my feelings as a Filipino in America. (Cheesy name, but I like alliterations. ;)) I love greeting cards--- writing on them, receiving them and simply reading them at a bookstore--- so I thought, "I should make greeting cards for Filipinos who feel the same way I do." And so here we are. I'm working on my online shop right now, so check back soon! Maraming salamat! :)
This inaugural tournament's medal artwork shall be named "PAGKAHIUSA" [unity]
as tribute to the efforts of all past and present adherents whose passion and selflessness for the indigenous fighting arts of the Philippines has contributed to FMA as being one of the greatest contributions of the Filipino people to Western society.
