MAY Day, MAY – Days!

May Day, May – DAYS!!!  Sounds familiar, but not really what you think it is all about.

May is a very special month for me and my husband (Darrelle – aka Kokobear). May – days have special dates that stand out among the 31 days. It has my birthday on 21st, Darrelle’s birthday & Mama Merlina’s bday (my mom-in-law) on the 27th and the most special of all is our Wedding Anniversary, today – the 16th! 

16th MAY

We’re celebrating our 3rd Wedding Anniversary this year. I know it’s way too early compared to other couples, but I have to say it has been great 3 years for both of us. We are not perfect but personally I found myself better, extending much patience and love to my better half. Which for sure he has his own share of that too. 🙂 Darrelle and I met way back 2009, been God’s gift to each other since 2010.  I praise God for this gift he has bestowed upon us. Keep us loving and patient as we continue working on your purpose for us.

    When Facebook is thoughtful ! 🙂 heheheh

21st MAY 

It’s my birthday! ^^ instead of giving my thoughts or further details, I will use this blog post as a public prayer.

Dear God,

Another year for me is yet to start, thank you for being with me all the way. All these years, I though I am lucky: with a good family that has very supportive & loving parents & a good younger bro, friends that though miles away from me but never stopped communicating, completed school, got to work, new friends abroad, and eventually travelled Abu Dhabi. Then I’ve realized I’m not lucky, I AM BLESSED.  Father – your love, mercy and compassion have kept me grounded. Thank you for using me in your special ways, thank you that amidst all the circumstances met throughout almost 9 years in Abu Dhabi, there you are by my side. I thank you for leading me into CFC-FFL community. I have to say, I am not who I am today when it comes to faith without being inside this community of yours.

Thank you for all the people you have sent to remind me of your presence. They may be kind or the opposite of it but it has brought the best of me. I know you are there when I am in pain, you are there when I felt joy. I know you have plans in my life and no matter how difficult and bumpy the road will be, Father I ask for your guidance. I will hold on to your promise and continue to seek the Holy Spirit in all the days to come.

On my birthday, I wish that you allow our plans to be according to your will. I continue to pray that may we be able to represent you in all circumstances. Amen.

Your daughter,


27th MAY 

What more is beautiful when your husband was born on the same day of his
mother. My gratefulness goes to Mama Merlina for giving birth to this man on her own birthday! On this day, I ho
nor both of you. Mama Merlina, thank you. Even if we didn’t meet (in person) and just heard each other over the phone once, I know that you love Darrelle with all your heart and I honor you for raising such a great man. It is because of you and Papa Danilo that I am now appreciating and enjoying this life with him.

Kokobear, I know I’ve been a difficult one but you have always been understanding and loving. I want you to know that I am so happy and blessed to be your  Kokobear <3 ! So honored to be your better half. I AM PROUD of YOU! And whenever you stand in the crowd, delivering God’s words it always make me wanna shout and say “Asawa ko na” (That’s my husband!) hehehe but of course, I’ve gotta keep my cool and be humble. kkkk 🙂 My love goes to you! <3

Three days out of the 31 days and yet I feel like we own the month! Anyone can of course do that. . .  This is just a simple blog post to share a little bit about my life. Which I owe all up to that big guy up there. Thank you Lord for these May day MAY Days!

God bless!!!


Mamo & Dado @ 31

My 100th Blogpost will be a special post for my very own parents. Let me share you some of my fond memories with them as a tribute to this 2 awesome people of my life.

They got married on this day, 31st Jan – 31 years ago, that was 1985. They met in one of the department store where they used to work. As years goes by they had me on their first year and followed by my brother – Glendann (Dan-Dan or Don Pasio) in 1987. I believe it was their choice to only have the 2 of us. Two, I guess is a good number to raise children and of course for education and other matters.
Often times I hear neighbors or even family members saying that both of them are strict. In fact I do have curfew, my class schedule is monitored and posted on our wall. We also need to be home at night not later than 6:30 pm. There is a strict rule to ask permission in case we would want to go outside for some fiesta events nearby.
Along those years, I have once entertained that idea that they were strict, I start to look at other kids and see their freedom. I pity myself. But that day was covered with the other events that happened as the years gone by. This bible passage was written (in a chalk by Dado) at the back of our door; that captured my heart and mind at that young age. I may not fully understand that by then but up to date I have appreciated that much!
Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
My brother and I have completed college with their efforts and with the very great help of our sari-sari store (J&G Store) and some family members who assisted us.
Of course we had our ups and downs as a family, me as a daughter and my bro as a son. Nonetheless by God’s grace we managed to overcome all these.
As we celebrate their 31 years of love and unity – I am so proud to tell the world that I am the daughter of Mr. Glenn Dacalos Bacus and Mrs. Julita Hortelano Bacus, also known as Mamo & Dado!
To close this blog, here is my greeting to the two of them, posted earlier today on my IG/Facebook account.
31 blessed years!!! Cheers to 🍾🍻🍸🎉 to the people behind our (Dan-Dan & me ) growth & success! I THANK The Almighty God for such wonderful gift He bestowed upon us,,, for giving both of you to be our parents. People often think you two are strict but now they know why the need to be one during our younger years…. The fruit of your labour has paid off and here we are today. I would like you to know that if you are proud of me and Dan-Dan, we are more proud of you as our parents. Stand and keep your heads up 👍🏼! I love you soooo much! I miss you too!!! HAPPY 31st ANNIVERSARY!!! Enjoy ur day! Mwahhh 😘😘 xoxo #MamoAndDado #TheBelts #Happy31Years
