A Girl Who

“Court her”
“I think you have a chemistry”
“She is beautiful”
“She is single”
“I have her number I will give it to you then send her sms”
“Ask her to go out”
“In our department you are the only guy who doesn’t have a girlfriend”

Oh thanks, actually I also like that girl she is smart, fun and seems to be loving girl.  I planned to court her and even before you ask me to know  more about her, I already did my sort of simple research about that girl.  
But sad to say she is not the type of girl that I like.  I’m not mean and a  choosy guy but I have my own uhmmm should I say qualification / standard when it comes finding a right girl for me. I found out that she doesn’t have same faith as I have, for some it’s not a big deal but for it is a must.  
I explained this point to my workmate (actually 2 of my colleagues wants me to court these 2 diffirent girls, first girl is my workmate in which we are on the same department, second girl is in the other department.  Both of them is really a good looking girls as I must say.)
They got upset as I was explaining my point on why I am not that interested to those girls that they want me to court with. I know that they just want me to be happy seeing in a relationship because according to them I am a good guy, a God-fearing guy, a loving guy etc. etc. So they wanted me to be the boyfriend of their friends.  But I refused.
Sad part….
Both of my workmate said to me……. 
” I think you are gay”
” You are gay “
” Maybe you doesn’t like girls or you want the other one ahahahaha (they laugh)…..
” Don’t be choosy “
Are they insulting me. Am I affected? Do I need to get mad?
I am just a typical, normal, average, plain guy.  
At that moment I realized more clearly what I want in a girl.
A girl who is full of grace.
A girl who is crazy in love with Jesus.
A girl who wants more Jesus in her life.
A girl who’s attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.
A girl whom I will treat like a princess because she’s the daughter of King Jesus.
A girl on which I can hold her hands while heading to a Church for a Sunday Services.
A girl that I can present to my Mom and Dad, saying that she is the girl that God wants me to spend the rest of my life.
God, make me a man after your heart and help me trust that you’re providing a woman who is after your heart, too. And while we’re both chasing after you, I pray we would bump into each other along this road, stop for a while to chat, and call the rest history. 
Proverbs 31 states, “Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.”

Overseas Absentee Voting

It was a productive day off for me after straight 5 days 12 hours a day per shift,  I accomplished 2 things, my renewal of passport and I voted as Overseas Absentee Voter.

A few months ago I first planned that I will just renew my passport in the Philippine Embassy here in Riyadh because passport is one of the most important thing as an OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker) but things was changed.

My appointment time in renewing passport is 11:55 AM in the morning, I went in the Embassy 20mins before my appointment time.  At exactly 11:55 AM the encoder called up my name, wow what an accurate time ( impressive huh ).  I didn't expected that the renewal of passport was about 5mins only and that was very impressive seriously, all because I have appointment schedule that day and so having an appointment schedule really helps you a lot.

After the passport thing, I passed by in the Overseas Absentee Voting information desk, at first I was hesitant to ask them regarding this OAV but there is this thought that is running in to my mind, that I need to exercise my rights as a Filipino citizen even if I am not in my home country.

"Excuse me Miss, I want to know if my name was registered on your list as OAV, because if I remember when I was in the Philippines they let me register in the POEA to be a OAV because at that time I was on one month vacation then I will comeback here again in Riyadh KSA."

Sir just fill up this form and I will search your name.....

Yes Sir you can vote here, then the lady wrote something in my paper and gave it back to me, Sir just go on the precinct number in the right upper of your paper. 

Then the lady instructed me on where to go.

Such a nice feeling seeing my name in the roster list of voters :)

Those list of voters was placed in the basketball court.

 So happy to see the Philippine Flag soaring high as the wind blows, it's like that flag depicts hope, positivity and full of honor.

Thumbs up for the future of the Philippines.

Personally casting my vote in the PCOS machine :) 


I asked a favor If can take a picture of the staff, and they are so game into it :)

They are so accommodating and very jolly persons.

Thank you guys for helping me out and for being so courteous, truly you embodied of a true values of being Filipino.

I felt good after exercising my rights to vote, even if I am away in my home country. After marking those small circles next to the senatorial candidates and one party list representative there is a hope that I can hold on to that my vote is going to be part of what I want for my country to be. GOD BLESS THE PHILIPPINES!

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he has chosen for his own inheritance. Psalm 33:12
