My handsome Tutu all dressed up for the church christmas party last year.

My Tutu (grandfather) has worked all his life

at 81 ( yes that’s right) his still at work rising early in the morn

same routine, same route, same time

He contemplated retirement after injuring his back

but my tutu confidently says “as long as my body can still function, I will still work”

dedicated, passionate, and patient

my tutu is my superhero he ain’t perfect and I appreciate him all the same

I didn’t grow up with my tutu as he went abroad to work when I was very young

his taken care of me and the family financially supporting us all this years

He gives the best advice of always working hard and putting GOD first

I wish I could repay him back but I myself can’t afford it, even thank you is not enough

I got a chance to spend the holidays last year with him

As I hear the front door close, I picture my tutu in his all decked out security uniform, beanie, gloves, shoes and heavy black back pack (he uses for balance) walking to the bus stop in the very cold morn

Nothing deters him, his always on schedule

At times I see the pain after he comes home, his legs are tired and it shows on his face

so he rests a while and uses his machine to massage his legs and back

I am overwhelmed at this and help take off his shirt and shoes

I feel helpless that there’s nothing more I can do

As he wakes in the evening his tone changes to a jolly one

his ready for tea and dinner and his favorite tv show “Family Feud”

he loves Steve Harvey, he thoroughly reads the paper, shakes his head if its tragic and comments out loud

He’ll request for another cuppa with bread and banana and his off to bed

not before saying a Prayer

My tutu can be stubborn at times if he doesn’t get his way & will cut you off if he doesn’t want to converse

At times he’ll tell tales of his childhood memories so vividly

He smiles and laughs while he shares such stories with great details

My tutu comes from a big family but his the only surviving sibling left now

he was able to meet his great-grand kids last year as well on his visit back home

he is my superhero and has made me the person I am today

Life may not be so fair to him all this years but he never complains of such hardships

He just keeps at it and moves along

putting his family first above all &  the sacrifices his made are priceless

I owe him alot and hope I can adopt his work ethic as well

I hope when he does finally retire it will be a well deserved one that he always dreamt of 😊

To my Tutu you are the real emphiany of hardwork and success

Today I salute you, to many more great years ahead and many Happiness, good health and strength

Thank you so much Tutu for Everything!!!

Me at LAX Airport a month ago on a Saturday night waiting for my flight back home in deep thought. Photo: A friendly traveller

As I stand here at a crossroad

In the biggest decision of my Life

it could make me or break me, either way I have to Try

risk it all for the DREAM

The Passion that all will work out the way it should

this Life of mine is too short to not take risks and with regrets that I might look back on and wish I had done

so to the Life of a Dreamer its now or never

I’m scared of changes but its the only way out somehow

no turning back, no pauses in this journey

only a forward sign to a road unknown

As I stand on this dark, lonely, cold, and windy crossroad, I’m determined than ever before that NOW is the right time

to chase and knock on every door that will give me a chance to pursue this Dream

The passion to do MUSIC and fulfill my lifelong Dream, THE AMERICAN DREAM!!!

I felt so close lately but soooo far away but in due time,  GOD’s time it will be mine someday soon 😊

  • dedicated to every DREAM CHASER & to the Amazing people that will support you no matter what!! YOUR ONE IN A MILLION 😇






cropped-fb_img_1520278552498.jpgAs for us our Life is like grass

one day it shall all come to pass

we were born to Live, to feel what life is about

to grow and flourish and sprout out

to set goals, Dreams, and  chase Destiny

to feel joy, pain, anger, fear, sorrow, and despair

Ain’t fantasies Life wasn’t meant to be easy

hardwork is what keeps us busy

to go through trials, tribulation and storms

This is what Life is formed

to allow us to be stronger, to know and understand and to Live longer

without confidence, courage, Faith and above all Love

Life is indeed like a beautiful Flower

Though lost it shall be Found


looking out this beautiful midday afternoon

memories take me back to my childhoodpexels-photo-219998

years of innocence lost in time like the setting of the sun

I wonder if I could capture those moments in a photograph

A picture in my mind unravelling before my eyes

Those days filled with awe and surprise

But now I’m older and in pain with regrets

That moment I try to remember  but forget

My secrets buried within my soul, surviving this ordeal creates a great big blog

How can I tell you what I’m going through?

I don’t want to look like I’ll die soon

For only GOD knows what’s ahead of me

I pray that I have the courage to see

That if I don’t…….only he knows whats best for me



pexels-photo-110874.jpegThe rain pours its torrent drops over the wooden house upon the hill

It sits tamed like a lion, the wind gashes its strength on the windows edge

Trees sway from side to side like an orchestrated symphony

A choir without its conductor

Nature shows its anger the best way known

you traitor how could you? gentle streams open its bank to the mighty torrents

Taking anything that comes its way

Rage fights its way to be heard, anger calls, anger breaks, anger destroys

Anger is felt throughout the land

Yet the house upon the hill stands Quiet and alone

Very still Now and Alone.


pexels-photo-919496There’s always a place of fanstasy where beauty is a feeling unmatched

A place that only exist in your Dreams as a child

A place for longing, a wonderland where everything makes you Happy

As you get older the feeling still lingers and your heart skips a beat if someone mentions it by chance

I envy those that have been there who tell tales of beauty and simplicity

A place that does exist in reality and yet seems so far away

A place where the sand, sea, the sunset and sunrise have a new meaning

The scenery is unmatched and untouched by humans

The colors of Nature rich in all it’s Glory and made by the Creator himself

He must have spent a little more time in this small piece of Paradise

Those that call it Home wouldn’t trade it for anything at all

Carefree, small-knit town where everybody knows each other, cool breeze, and the foods eaten by the gods

Its all too good to be true but a place like this does exist on this earth

A well-kept secret that people from all over the world are just now discovering

I still long for this place and it still appears in my Dreams now and then

Its pure torture everytime

where its the pricless Smile and laughs of the people that will melt your heart

The more I think it the more it hurts

Still longing, still Dreaming hope I wake up to this reality soon

An adventure so long overdue

A hidden magical serenity I call Paradise
