Baby it's cold outside ♪

Why it's terribly freezing cold this winter ?!  
Japan has been experiencing heaviest snowfalls lately in four years.
The temperatures usually stay low as in minus degree celsius!  
What happened to global warming? 
Oh well... even it's too cold ... 
still i went out driving and exploring around this weekend nearby town.
 Mountain parts are almost covered with snow.
Some are close due to slippery road and heavy snow. 
making a snowman??! 

isn't he cute?! 





The best thing to do to keep you warm during cold season is this hot spring! 

pampering time inside the hot spring hotel!  

 Typical Shizuoka' food specialties 

Ferris wheel ... over looking Mt. Fuji

  Harsh winter is not over yet ... so please don't let cold virus beat you guys!

A blessed 2018 to all!!

Hello everyone!
How's your new year?  I hope you had fun and enjoyable celebration.
Thanks be to God for the wonderful 2017 ... that was a blessed one!  Lots of unforgettable moments like the grand family reunion in Davao City.  That was the last meeting also with my fav uncle Ben who passed away last December.  Lucky enough that I was able to bond and hug him for the last time during that visit in Davao City last May.  
My sis Malou's visit to Japan and Darling visit from Canada was great too! 
My 2017 was another busy year on travels ... i loved all the places i had been especially in Europe wherein I visited Austria, Spain, Hungary and Slovakia.  Thanks to all the kindness of my loving relatives and friends that I met there.
 Special thanks to my awesome bestie!!   You're the best dear!  Thank you for always being a very good friend of mine!
Exploring Bataan and visiting Okinawa was superb too! Including the summer visit in Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo.  That was sooo hectic sched but incredible!  Thank you Lord for the strength, power and for being my provider always! 
I am also grateful to all the favorable works and activities that i did and experienced!  Nothing is impossible when i always depend on You!   
Foremost,  thanks be to God for protecting and watching over my family for the whole 2017. 
I do hope and pray for another healthy, happy and blessed 2018.
Protect us and bless us more dear Lord!
Your my precious Saviour ... i live to worship and honor you! 

Love and peace to all!

Thank you Santa Claus!

Have you noticed?  The life span of gadgets now-a-days like mobile phones only works normally for about two years? No matter how you take good care of them ... for no apparent reasons it usually stops working after two years... same things happen to all my smartphones for this past 6 years.  After two years, i need to buy a new one.  Smarty mobile industry ... well, if they produce a long life device ... how could they profit more then? ... it's business anyway!  
 Luckily ... Santa Claus is existing in my life ... seems i have been good this year so i got this reward!  Thank you so much for my new smartphone ... and to top it all , i got free docomo-pad too!  What a blessing isn't it?  
To God be the glory!

Summer trip in Kamakura

Finally, i was able to visit Kamakura City!!! 

It's an old city in Kanagawa Prefecture which is rich in historical, traditional and cultural sites.  
It was a political center of medieval Japan.
 Kamakura is also well-known as 
the version of Kyoto in eastern Japan.
   
I enjoyed many shrines, temples and other old facilities around.

Great Buddha in Kotokuin Temple. 
A monumental outdoor bronze statue of Amida Buddha.


Bamboo grove in Hokokuji Temple

Everyone should not miss riding this... 
Enoden line, popular old train in Kamakura.  
It connects Kamakura to Fujisawa via Enoshima. 

Japanese sweets
so sweet !!

Hasedera Temple

They also have sand beaches where everyone can enjoy especially during summers!  

I am not yet done touring around Kamakura ... I have heard that it's better to visit the place during autumn season because the autumn leaves are stunning everywhere ... so hopefully, i will visit the place again ... most probably in Enoshima area xx

Fellowship retreat

I was not actually decided if i will join or not this overnight fellowship because i am busy in many things in the first place ... but God challenged me to go.
The fellowship turned out to be so interesting and fun.
"God's nature and me" game 

I learned many valuable things through games, sharing and praying.
Thanks for the additional spiritual wisdom.

The nature around us was a blessings too.  It was supposed to be a rainy weekend but turned out to be a bright day!

The foods were great.

The fellowship was awesome in general!
Thanks to Pastora Nilda for leading us and to sis Reina for organizing this 1st JCOB Shizuoka Women's Fellowship.  We were also grateful to sis Reina for the effort of encouraging our families to send us special greetings ... that was an amazing and touching moment xx
The women of God 

We do hope and pray that many can join us next time.
