#InMyHeart♥ x Basic Invite: Let’s talk about Gorgeous Birthday & Party Stationaries!

Every milestone in our life deserves to be celebrated! A birthday, an anniversary, engagement, a wedding and more. These are a collection of memories worth remembering. Kicking off such moment needs us to start creating invitations. Although lately social media made them accessible by just simply creating an event, I am more of a traditional one!

 

What I am saying is – I still love, receiving cards & paperweight invites! That’s why it brings me so much excitement to share that this latest post of #InMyHeartJMKaynesBlog is collaboration with BASIC INVITE!

Five (5) Podcasts I listen to

Many people nowadays usually say they are busy and squeezing in some time for something new might not be applicable. But how about during your lull time? How about while you do a long walk, maybe a jog or run. Or stuck in the traffic? In a queue waiting for something? Obviously, the go to “thing” – is, of course; our mobile phones. Browsing Facebook, Instagram or playing games. But how about learning something new or get inspired by listening to a Podcast!?

Yes, many heard this word and yet a few have explored.

 


What’s a podcast?

/pɒdkɑːst/  A podcast is a digital audio file available on the internet for downloading and be saved on your computer or mobile device. These are pretty much like a radio station conversation about a certain topic. Topics vary from faith, business, creativity, education and all other topics.


 

In this post, I am sharing 5 of the podcast I listened to and has kept me inspired throughout the 7 months that I’ve been staying just at home since January. 

 

1. Happier

Hosted by: Gretchen Ruben

Gretchen is a writer based in New York who studies habit and anything about happiness. She’s  joined by her friend Elizabeth Craft in this journey to be happier. My favorite part of this show is when they give one specific happier act every episode they call “do this at home”  tip, which allows you to do it as a way to be happier.

I also enjoy the last part wherein Gretchen and Elizabeth exchange their Happiness gold stars (merits) & demerits alternately. These are simple good & bad (not really bad, but “to improve” ) stuff they’ve done over the past days/weeks. A good way to recognize people, things, habits that create a positive impact in life, how minute they could be. Or even recognizing that what they’ve done; is something to “work on” and be better next time.

Read her show notes and load up with her happier podcasts on Happier.

 


2. The Purposeful Creative

Hosted by: Arriane Serafico

I was watching a YouTube talk show (also a podcast) called Coffee Break and there I first knew this very creative lady!  That short interview she had on that show wherein she talked about How to Ace your Presentation got me curious of her craft, so I googled her and learned about her personal website, her blog – now podcast The Purposeful Creative and her BraverGoals community. She swept me with her ideas and of her ways of presenting them. What I love the most about her blog/podcast is that she gives a very easy & actionable step to act out. She challenges & encourages all her listeners/followers of various things that would definitely keep you thinking.

I personally love her IG Feeds & stories. So go ahead & follow her on Instagram @arrianeserafico and listen to her podcast on The Purposeful Creative.

 

 


3. Teacher Tactics

Hosted By: Collin Dodds & Michelle

As a high school teacher, this is one of the best “teaching” podcast I’ve encountered. As they wrote on their tag line; “Impactful HS teaching strategies”.

I started listening to this one, the moment I’ve accepted the new job I got – this middle of the year (2017). I love that they are very specific with their examples and sharings. Most of all I enjoy that they close it with an inspiring and catchy quote called  “Potent Quotables”.

I look forward to more ideas, strategies, classroom management and interviews of real life teachers sharing their passion, designs, styles, teaching tips, discipline, student engagements, and tactics! It excites me to be back in the teaching stage! It’s been almost 9 years since I left the teaching world and this is going to be my first attempt to a “real-life classroom teaching.” Wish me luck! Bring it on September! 🙂 Woohooo!

Teacher Tactics‘ website/podcast episodes can be found on www.teachertactics.com.

 


4. Creative Pep Talk

Hosted By: Andy J. Pizza

For a while now, I have tried calling myself a “creative”, well I guess I deserved to be one… anyone can be creative in their own right. But then, I found myself going around the idea of creative thinking or design thinking and landed on this podcast! I enjoy that Andy is so open about exploring this world and unleashing the power of creativity in oneself. Hearing other creatives too from the series of interviews he made over the past episodes gets me into taking down notes and trying to brainstorm that creative side of me. Every end of the episode I sure have a take home. It could be an idea or a quote that ignites the creative part of me!

 

Get updates on his latest podcast episode on Creative Pep Talk website.

 


5. Catholic Answers

Hosted by: Cy Killet with Different Priests & Apologetics.

As a Catholic Christian of course, it helps to allow yourself learn more about your faith by understanding how it works. When I found this podcast, I know I am on the right track. It talked about the topics about Catholicism. Why we do this and that, what is the reason the Pope or the priest says this or do that. There is also a day where in they open the lines up and allow Christians and other denominations call them for random questions. It is a good way to touch topics that probably some other people have the same questions and yet don’t have enough guts to ask it.

Get updates and other details about the Catholic faith on Catholic Answers.

 


This list is, of course, a few of the many podcasts circulating the podcast world which you could explore on the net and/or your Podcast app on your iPhone or on Sticher for Androids phones.

As for me, I am continuously researching for new and refreshing ideas as I explore this new medium. Isn’t it a better alternative than just browsing and peeking up the lives of others or do selfies here and there? 🙂 lol I’m guilty of that too! hehe

Hope this one helps you in one way or another. Just another option to spend your lull moments.

Have your own choices and feed your thoughts of something better, educational & of course positive!

“Keep learning and strive to better yourself!”

How about you? Do you listen to podcasts? What are your favorites!?! Go ahead let me know – on the comments below & I’d be happy to check them out too! 🙂

God bless!

It’s Eid al-Adha, what’s your plan?

 Photo credit from: riyadhprayertimes.com

Eid al-Adha is one of the many holidays that UAE and other muslim countries celebrates.

There are 2 Eid celebrations: One is Eid al-Fitr that’s the end of the Ramadan season and the upcoming one on 31st August is Eid al-Adha. It is also known as the Big Eid probably because it is usually noted as a long holiday (including the weekends). This Eid is also called as the Sacrifies Feast, in honor of Abraham who willingly sacrificed/offered his son as an act of submission to God’s command. Pretty much the same story with what we Christians have in the holy bible.

With the holiday approaching, what’s your plan?!?

You’d probably heard this question asked by many of your family and friends around here in the UAE.

As for me and Kokobear, we don’t have a concrete plan yet. Unlike last year, we headed to Sri Lanka but this year due to what happened last December, we don’t have any. But even though we don’t have a plan, I just thought of sharing a few suggestions for you, your friends and family to bond with during this holiday season.

Check these out!

1. Catch up some lost sleep – Have you ever thought that you always don’t have enough sleep? When in fact it has become psychological. We tend to complain not having enough sleep because we wake up early morning for work or school but when it’s weekend, we stay up way late at night or even until dawn, since there is no commitment the next day. hehehe I feel you! I am currently in that stage. But hey, it’s a 3 days holiday, so go ahead hit the sack now. 🙂

2. Stay at home and do the Karaoke – We Filipinos are known for our love of music and a Karaoke is a must activity for most of us. So take out all the chips and drinks, let’s sing it and let’s do it MY~~~ WAY!!!!  haha 😀

3. Try out an Emirati/Arabic Restaurant and somehow feel how they celebrate Eid – Understanding a country’s culture always includes enjoying the local cuisine and so why not look for an Arabic restaurant (roasted Lebanese chickens exempted, coz I guess we’ve all tasted that on day to day basis)… Or maybe, if you happen to know a local family, then why not visit and try to celebrate it with them!

4. Photo Walk or Enroll in a class you’re interested in – Have you noticed that the weather starts to cool down? It’s good for a photo walk now! It doesn’t require a DSLR to do that, your mobile phones could actually deliver. Take a photo and burn some calories too! Hitting two birds with one stone! 🙂 Another option is to take a class that you’re interested in. Maybe a photography class or calligraphy and others? Very simple, just check out some nearby seminars/workshop events on Facebook or use Google!

5. Go to the beach or park – It’s a good time to spend time with family and friends by the beach, Corniche will always be open, or how about Saadiyat beach! Well, if you want to entertain your tastebuds into barbeque sessions, the parks will also be a good option!

6. Movie (cinema) or Movie marathon at home – Movies movies movies! Who doesn’t want to catch up some movies and do a marathon at home or check out the latest showing at the nearest cinema? I bet watching movie is the number one past time here in the UAE.

7. Visit Family and relatives from the other Emirates – Majority of us here in the UAE has family members staying in the other Emirates, so why not reconnect ties and bond more with them. Make more family memories to relinguish by staying at their home, or book a hotel in RAK, see some green gardens in Al Ain, or enjoy the huge Dubai mall! After all, Eid al-Adha was a family offering for God.

8. Get to know Abu Dhabi more by visiting these 10 Free Site-seeing Places. – Yes, I have recently wrote for Biggie Tips – 7 Free Site Seeing Places in Abu Dhabi and I have added 3 more to make it 10 on my own blog. 🙂 This is quiet connected to #5 with more options though :D. Let’s try being a tourist of our own city and explore Abu Dhabi’s must see places.

9. Take a short trip outside UAE. – Three days is enough to visit the nearest country such as Georgia, Sri Lanka in our case last year, or do a 2 nights/3 days short solo trip to Armenia just like what Ms. Poet RM did. Read her story on Going Solo to Yerevan Armenia 2016.

    Follow her blog as she shares herself through poetry & check out her adventures on http://mspoetrm.wordpress.com 🙂

10. Service + Fellowship with CFFL Brethren – Community life is a lifestyle, so how about service + fellowship with our brothers and sisters in the community? This is just another great way to spend this holiday more meaningful by offering time to God through service & fellowship. Check out these photos below shared by our brothers and sisters in the community. Photo credits to Bro. Wilper, Sis Joan and Sis Bevz.

These are just 10 of my suggestionson what to do during this Eid al-Adha. Maybe you could add more? Share your thoughts on the comment below.

God bless and enjoy your Eid al-Adha!

 

 

 


 

Why I was hesitant to volunteer for SJC Kids’ Summer Camp 2017

Summer! A season when the kids are taking their break from school, and this year, SJC has organized another Summer Camp for kids.  In the beginning, I have no intention to volunteer for St. Joseph Church Kids’ Summer Camp 2017. Maybe some of you know, my husband Kokobear was the one who posted the ad on CFFL Abu Dhabi FB pages about kids/youth to join this camp, including volunteers. While he was doing that, I little voice inside me says I should give it a try. When I opened it up to Ate Lou, she was excited and so I told her to give me time because I still have some hiccups… Lo and behold, she was actually praying for me to join and to cut the long story short; when I said “yes” she was just finished praying.

Allow me to share, my very personal reasons about why I was hesitant in accompanying Ate Lou. Actually, the job is pretty much easy, I am the presentation personnel who queues the slides during the mass. Of course a little bit of assistance too for the Kid’s Choir while Ate Lou teaches them how to sing the songs.

Here are my 3 of the reasons why:

First, to go out of my comfort zone is just not easy.

My comfort zone for the past 6 months has been staying home: applying for jobs, watching tv, a little exercise, cook lunch and dinner for Kokobear, read books, create ideas for blogs, unli-Facebook, and the list goes on. Allotting my 5 hours from 4:00 PM – 8-8:30 PM is not my usual, not my comfort zone.

While listening to some productivity/ creative podcasts, it hits me when they emphasized that we must go out of our comfort zone/s and try something new. These are the moments when you know in your heart that you are being called to explore and take yourself into a challenge of going outside the comfort of our home and just dive into the unknown. So I prayed and I got His confirmation to proceed.

Second, I don’t have money to go and come back and forth (Home-Church-Home)

This is our first photo – Ate Lou & I during the day 1, briefing session of the SJC Kids’ Summer Camp on 9 July 2017.

 

This might be one of the biggest reason for me and for those who were considering to volunteer. Taxi fare nowadays here in Abu Dhabi is at the roof top! Gone are the days when you could reach the church for 10-12 AED, nowadays it’s between 20-25 AED one way. The public bus is possible, although it will take some time to reach the church and still needs to walk during this scorching heat! But then, I worry no more – God provides that Ate Lou took over. She’s my personal sponsor in this service. 🙂 Thank you Ate!

 

And finally (third), I was hesitant because I’m not familiar with the sequence of the mass!

Yes! That’s a big revelation for me. I am a Catholic, I’ve been bold about this faith and I’ve been attending masses all my life – but there is a pang in my heart that hurts. 🙁 That hesitation, that I felt was this! I am (or was) afraid of what I will do if the slides won’t work… How will I know what’s next? This and that and all other questions that are related to both technical issues and my personal issue of not being worthy to be assigned in that area because I don’t memorize the sequence of our own mass!!!

I wrote notes on the missal, highlighted some parts and go over masses on youtube to know which is which, what goes first and next and last. God also sent people to help me know what is proper Gospel or a Feast to change the readings of the day. I also learned that regular days don’t have Second readings. All these and more –  I won’t know if I haven’t volunteered.

 

That was 25 days to be exact – when I handled the slides (minus 1 because I was off for a day for MER 2). Minor technical glitches happened but the church people are just so helpful. I’ve also had the chance to assist the kids and Ate Lou with the tune of the songs – ha ha never thought I’d be singing – just a little :).


Here’s a shortie video I captured while the kids were practicing their finale’ presentation.

What I learned on this “somehow” mini #PassionProject of mine.

I called this a mini Passion Project because; this act of volunteering is indeed a part of my preparation as I take on a new journey to teaching. To teach is not new to me. I’ve been in that field since I was a kid, it is my major passion that I even finished university & become a professional. But, it has been almost 9 years since I last danced in that stage of nourishing the minds of students. This camp immersed me into that real world of how the youngsters of today are different from way back almost a decade of my minute experience. I am positive though that I’ve learned something from this 5 weeks journey.

To cap it off, I am blessed to be attending mass all week long. I’ve heard many different priests doing the homily. Even though their context are directed for the kids, the adults also have their own take home of those teachings. One night, the homily was about our fears – and on that day, I found out and literally defined one for me. All the while I know I have a little share of fear for this and that (heights, snakes, dark rooms etc.), but manageable. Nevertheless, my mind opened that I am actually afraid of the unknown, just like my third reason. Unknown of what happens next, unknown things that I might fail to do what is needed from me.

It’s amazing, how God works. In this camp, he provides. In this camp, he confirmed that nothing is impossible. In this camp, he knocked into my heart and reminded me of His daily presence.

 

God bless us all!

 

 

 


 

3 Reasons to Love BAGAIL’s Clear Tote Bag

Bags are girl’s best friend!

Bags are another girl’s best friend, second to diamonds if I may say. Ask a lady how many bags she has and for sure she’d tell you a number more than 5!  In this blog post, let me introduce BAGAIL.com a fast-growing company for outdoors and travel products. It specializes various bags for men and women. One of their many great product is this 12″ x 12″ x 6″ clear cross-body messenger shoulder zippered bag with adjustable strap travel and gym clear totel bag. 

As a teacher, I am a big fan of big bags but personally this bag’s size and style are perfect for all my books, visual aids and personal materials. This could fit all my purse content, just the way I would want my bag to be. 🙂 Here are my three reasons to love Bagail Clear Tote Bag:

DURABILITY and QUALITY 

When most people thought clear bags are weak… think again! This clear tote bag from Bagail is at it’s standard quality. Made from a 0.4mm thick vinyl, a touch of strong and durable material that is not too thick nor rigid. It has nylon handles that are reinforced and double stitched so you can comfortably carry even heavy loads.

 

FUNCTIONALITY & PERFECT SIZE

The 12 inches high, 12 inches wide and 6 inches deep dimension is a perfect size to hold various stuffs we often bring such as our wallet, camera, keys, cellphone, a bottled water  and more. It can be carried over the shoulder or as a sling bag. It’s highest advantage is the fact that you will not take time searching and struggling when you’re looking for something inside the bag! I for one get annoyed in situations when you’re in a hurry and yet you struggle finding that one item inside our bag! But with this, you could quickly glance & see all in it!

 

FAST TRACK ACCESS during EVENTS

Heading to events? Concerts, parks, casinos or heading to an NFL and PGA Tournaments take a toll of the time to open and close zipped bags for security checking. None the less, with this transparent bag that is stadium approved as per the regulations of clear bags for football games or even airport security that will give you a fast track entrance access. Saves time!

These are just 3 of the many reasons to love this type of bag and for sure you could identify more once you get a hold of it! It’s a perfect see-through bag for everyone. Simple and comfortable.

Oh by the way, this is also a great bag for the beach and any family outings! Not only that, it’s a good storage for makeups and toiletries too!

Bagail also offers a 100% money back guarantee! They are committed to offer the best products and a full refund in case this bag doesn’t meet your demands.

What do you think? Would you love having one? Check out this clear tote bag and more designs such as travel bags on BAGAIL.com.

 

God Bless!

SHOPBACK PH: SHOP & GET A CASH BACK!

Shopback main pic
Shop and get a Cashback!

For a “kuripot” person (stingy) like me, it was only early last year (2016) that I learned to purchase some stuff online. Online shopping isn’t really my thing but I have started to enjoy it though. I have this feeling of being not so sure if it does work and to my surprise, it brought me convenience! Just when I thought that online shopping brings convenience, it has become better and found it more alluring when I learned about getting a few bucks back!

How would you feel if you get a “cash back” on your purchases online!?! Made me wanna shop all day long! 🙂 hehehe
It’s exciting to know that you get a certain percentage from the purchase you do via online shopping! Have you heard of ShopBack!? 
Yes, you’re right! Singapore’s popular cash back website is now in the Philippines! Popular not only in SG, but it has also started its waves to the other parts of Asia such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan etc.
Few of the most popular shops includes Forever21, Sephoraand some Korean beauty products (Althea) for those make-up fanatics!, Booking.com, Expedia and more – for travel related purchases, Lazada, Zalora, Gap, AliExpress, EBay, FoodPanda and the list goes on . . .
Here are few of the shops you can enjoy with their corresponding % of cash back.
So how does this online shopping-cash back system works?
Easy!
For Example you want to purchase a certain product:
  • Let’s say something that costs 1000/- Pesos.
  • The online shop where you will purchase this product has a certain percentage  to give out as a “cash back” – so for example Hotels.com gives 5% cash back.
  • That means you will be getting back 5% of 1000 pesos to your ShopBack Account.
  • That is 50 pesos!!!
A good start to save, isn’t it?
Not clear yet? Well, this video may help!
 
Sounds tempting right? 
In fact here are some of the major shops that offers pretty cool cash back percentage!
To make sure that you get your cash back, do not go directly to the shop’s website, instead log in to your Shopback.ph app or visit www.Shopback.ph website and click the shop/product from there. You will  then be redirected to the site of your chosen shop. Do the normal shopping and pay directly there.
When your order is completed, ShopBack “cash back %” will appear on your account within 48 hours. You can get a payout once you reach a certain amount (will be tagged as Redeemable) and cash it out through PayPal, BPI, BDO or Metrobank account and more.
  
How do we start?
1.     Start by checking this step by step “How it Works” guide.
2.   Register for an account and enjoy online shopping –  Sign Up Here. 
           *You can either download an app or visit the website www.shopback.ph
3.    Start Shopping and start enjoying your cash back!
4.  Refer friends, get more bonus such as P100 on your successful referral once they complete a purchase.
As an OFW, I see this online shopping – cash back system helpful and very tempting in a way that we could use it to send out “gifts” to families and friends back home.

What do you think? Wanna give it a try?  Go ahead give it a try and share your experience with ShopBack Philippines. I’d be happy to hear from you!

God Bless!

#RelationshipGoals

Social media has highlighted many #RelationshipGoals photos and videos. In a recent blogpost from one of the bloggers I follow – Kryz on ThirstyThoughts , she wrote an open letter to the millennials… inside that blogpost are beautiful photos of her, but then what happens behind the scene is something not many know. . . which makes a superficial/shallow #hashtags of #WhateverGoals!

In this blog post, I have asked some friends of what are their #RelationshipGoals (in all aspects) many have seen it but only 2 brave souls were keen enough to give me a respond. So here are 3 #relationshipgoals + explainations (I have added mine too.)

Read on!

#1. Watch the moon and stars while doing a back float.

There is a challenge of trust in floating, while both eyes away from one another. A feeling of serenity; talking each other while looking to the moonlight and sparkling stars. Indeed, will relax to the depth of both souls. – Rei Moises (Visit her blog on MsPoetRM.)

#2. Understand.Love.Talk

Dapat mag intindihanay kmu mga duwa kng anu problema nga duwa histrayahan para indi mag lab ot sa away, kag mg palanggahanay kmu nga duwa. J (You should understand each other. Whatever the problem between the two of you, you should talk over it and avoid getting  into a bigger fight and also you must love  each other.) – Rhoda Chavez
 

#3. Serve in God’s Vineyard.

Whether in church or in a Religious community like CFFL/CFC-FFL (CFC Foundation for Family and Life / Catholics for Family and Life) – I believe every couple (boyfriend-girlfriends/married ones) should allow themselves to grow spiritually in the content of serving God. Inside a community you will surely know your strengths and weaknesses. I can vouch for that.– JM Kayne

Hope this list inspires you (whether single or in a relationship) – make sure you tick off these #RelationshipGoals or #RelationshipBucketlist!

How about you? What’s yours?

Sharing more of your #RelationshipGoals soon.

God bless!
