Another Day for Our Departed Love Ones!

Another special day has come. It is the special day to commemorate our love ones who already passed away.

November 1 is All Saint's Day wherein we remember, we pray, we commemorate, and we visit our love ones who already joined our Almighty God. Yeah, just like many of us, we also go to the cemetery to visit them and light candles for them!

Yesterday, we visited the memorial places in Manila North Cemetery our departed lolo, lola, father, and auntie. We lighted candles and pray for their souls.

In our family, five love ones already passed away. Yup, our grandfather on March 4, 1992; our grandmother on December 3, 1999; our father on April 11, 2006; and our auntie just last August 23, 2010. My eldest brother also passed away right after birth on April 8, 1981.

It's our family's tradition to visit them every first day of November. And we light candles for them even in our home at 6pm onwards.

So sad that they already leaved us. But still, we should be glad that they were already in the hands of our Dear Lord.

For them and to all the memories of our departed love ones, I dedicated this post! I love them all..!!! c",)

A Humor Month of November!

We're already on the second to the last month of the year, the month of November! It's such another exciting month before the month of Christmas!

And what's up for November?! Is it another horror story?!

Well actually whenever we speak for the month of November, we were thinking of Halloween, All Saint's Day, All Souls Day, ghost, monsters, and any other supernatural creatures. But in our case, here in my blog site, I will make a difference! For this month, we will move away from any horror stories!

Yup, it's because I already offered you in advance our special Halloween issue. Since Halloween is celebrated every last day of October, I already given it to you last month.

And if you will notice, I already featured All Saints' Day and All Souls Day in the very beginning of November! Yup, since in the first and second days of November we celebrated these holidays, I already posted these topics before I gave you our November expectations!

So, what do we have now this November?! Well, it's all about Humor! Yeah, it's humor! We will laugh out loud for the whole month of November because of my different humorous posts! Your bored world will totally filled with lots of laughter because of our special humor edition this month of November!

It's Raining Every All Saint's Day

Yup, it always rains every All Saint's Day! Did you also observed that or noticed this trend?!

I didn't remember any 'Todos Los Santos' without rain every afternoon. Since I was a kid, I always experienced and observed that rains follow every All Saint's Day! Do you wonder why this is happening?!

According to my aunt, it rains every All Saint's Day because the dead were crying! "Lumuluha raw ang mga patay dahil walang dumadalaw sa kanila..."!

In one of my favorite radio stations, the DJ also explained this theory. It's the same thing! According to her, the dead were crying! They were crying because for the first time they received flowers! "Nung nabubuhay pa sila, walang nagbibigay sa kanila ng bulaklak at hindi pa sila nakakatanggap na bigyan nito kahit na minsan. 'Nung namatay na, dun na madami nagbibigay sa kanila"! Who do you think will never cry receiving flowers for the very first time?!

Scientifically, they were no proofs about these theories. These were also jokes for others! But if you analyzed deeply, why did it rains every first day of November when people were visiting their love ones in the cemetery?!

Do you have any other more explanations for this?! Why does it rains every All Saint's Day?! Are dead really crying?! Well, don't be shy to post your comments and interpretations! Let me hear from. Let's share our ideas! C",)

Remembering Our Departed Love Ones!

Today is another All Saint's Day, a very popular tradition to all the Filipinos! Many people were scattered in different cemetery to visit their love ones who already passed away.

Just like us who have just arrived from home. Yup, we already visited our love ones in North Cemetery. With my mother, my two cousins, my brother-in-law, my little niece, and my aunt, we prayed and lighted candles to our departed loves ones!

Every November 1, we do this annual tradition to commemorate our dead members of the family.

We were so glad and fulfilled that for this year, we had visited the tombs of our four love ones. My auntie, my daddy, my lola, and my lolo were all visited.

My auntie just passed away two months ago. We never forget to visit her and light candles for her. My grandfather and my grandmother rest in the same place with my auntie. My grandfather died 18 years ago while my grandmother 11 years ago.

After our visit in their place, we then went to my father's tomb. It was almost 6pm when we reached his place. We prayed and light candles for him. He went with the Lord four years ago!

After our visits, we still lighted candles here in our home at the start of the eve. This was another tradition every 'Todos Los Santos'!

Hayz...though sad with their loss, we still happy for them. Happy that they already rest with our Lord. That they were already in peace without experiencing anymore pains, sufferi9ngs, trials, and challenges. And we were happy and fulfilled that for this year, we were able to visit them and light candles for them!

How about you, do you already visited your departed love ones?! Do you already lighted candles for them or prayed for their souls?! Let's never forget them. Let's keep their memories and good deeds in our hearts!C",)

A Night of Halloween!

Today is another October 31! And this day is another popular day to all of us. As they say, this day is the so-called "bimperas ng araw ng mga patay"!

Since I was I child, I know that this night is the night wherein the souls of our departed love ones visited us. Yeah, it's such a frightening night since their souls return in our home to remind us that tomorrow is their day. A day for us to visit them!

It seems true! I already had experiences pertaining to this beliefs.

The first one was during college. It was a Halloween night in our previous rented home. The grandparents of our neighbor were already dead. They believe that during a night like this, their souls visited them. They have dogs. And we know that if a dog do an 'alulong' sound, it sees a ghost! And that very night, their dog eventually 'umalulong' saying "awooohhh"!!! That made me believed that the souls of their love ones already came and visited them!

Another experience is just this day. Yup, only this morning!

You know that my beloved auntie already passed away last August 23, 2010. And just this morning, I had a dream. I was watching TV particularly a Willie Revillame's "Wowowee". Then my auntie came in my room. I said to her that my eyes were tired. She touched and massage my eyes to heal. I also complained to her that I experienced some health disorder. Then she said, she has no power to heal. But still she keeps on massaging my eyes.

Before she go, I told her that I already bought my laptop. She was very happy to see my new laptop. She even asked me to teach her play a game with my new laptop. I even introduced to her my little black stuff toy kitten. I say she's the child of Miming Negro!

When she leaved my room, I eventually woke up. It seems so very real! I didn't thought that it was just a dream! My auntie just visited me today through my dream!

Hayz...that were some of my real life experience pertaining to Halloween, a night where souls visited their remaining love ones based on our beliefs!

But in other countries like in Canada and US, Halloween is a night for kids, another party celebration! Trick or treats and costume parties were some of the activities they annually celebrated!

So, let's spend this night according to what we believe! Again, let me greeted you with:

Happy Halloween!

A Lover of Horror!


Halloween, All Saint's Day, and All Souls Day were fast approaching. We will again celebrate the tradition we grow with every November 1. Nearing this period, ghost stories, supernatural encounters, and mysteries brought by the different elemental creatures and spirits were all the topics on TV, radio, and print media.

And did you know that I love those things!?

A Collection of Horror Movies...I Like!

Different Horror Themes!

Yeah I really love horrors! Horror is my genre. I love horror films, horror TV series, horror TV programs specially the documentary and news features every Halloween, horror topics on radio programs, horror stories, and anything that were frightening and terrifying.

Let's start with the movies. Yeah, I love horror films. It started in my childhood. My mother and I love to see horror films. I remember on my childhood days, during weekends when there was new horror film on Cinemas, me and my mom watched movies on malls together.

From childhood up to now, I like horror films! favorite movie genres were horror and romance! Ooopps...I will reveal....the third genre I love most were sexy and bold movies specially the bold Indie films nowadays! know now one of my desires...!!

Back to horror movies, yeah, I have a collection of different horror films in my TV rack. Horror films from the different countries. Filipino, Asian, American horrors...I haver it! Ooopps...don't dare to ask what my other movie and DVD collections 'coz you're gonna be shocked! Hahaha!!!

"The Grudge"...It Came With Different Versions

"Doll Master"...One of Korean Best Horror

I Like Dracula!

Being a lover of different TV series, yup, horror was also my type! I thanked Primetime Bida when they aired on TV new horror-series like "Patayin Sa Sindak Si Barbara", "Maligno", "Florinda", and "La Vendetta"! I used to be avid viewers of those shows!

Even on radio programs, I keep tunning on my favorite AM program every midnight like "Stargazzer's Pinoy Vibes" which tackles supernatural things. Specially now were on the season of Halloween, their topics were all about ghost and spirits!

"Fengshui"...One of the Best Filipino Horror Movie

"Sukob"...A Combination of Two Best Horror Actress!

Different Faces of Horror

Since Halloween, even other TV programs like news and documentary shows were all dominated by ghost topics. If you can still recall every Halloween season, the former TV program of Noli De Castro "Magandang Gabi Bayan" features a special episodes about different ghost stories, spirits, and supernatural encounters. Starting from my childhood, I was an avid viewer of that Kabayan show during this ghost season. Hope that they will air it again or revive it on TV.

But today, I was glad that the ABS-CBN current affairs program "XXX" hosted by Julius Babao, Pinly Web, and Alex Santos allots a special Halloween episode every end of October or early November! But I failed to watch their ghost episode last Monday because since they moved their timeslot from Saturday to Monday night, it's too late in the evening. I can't watch it anymore, I have to wake up early in the morning for my work since I'm in a dayshift!

Dark Angel

Vampires...One of mY Favorite Horror!

I'm Afraid of Horror in Real Life!

And another FYI on my horror hobby, did you know that during my childhood days, I have a lot of Comics collection? Yeah, majority of these were horror comics like "Dracula" (my favorite), "Nightmare", "ESP", and other. Of course, my other favorite comics that was not horror was "Funny Komiks". I remember that I cried my mom if she didn't bought me comics! Everytime we go to the market, I always point "Dracula" comics! Ohh...I missed those days!

Of course I also read horror pocketbooks! I love the ghost stories on those pocketbooks. Wayback 1994 when comics were slowly vanishing, my mom bought me horror pocketbooks. I enjoy reading them specially the 3-in-1 story in the "Friday The 13TH" pocketbook!

Horror...horror...horror....!!!! I really love them! I like ghost stories and mysteries! But wait, I love horror but I was afraid to see ghost! Yeah, I was frightened to see white lady, dwarf, ghost, and other supernatural creatures. Good that my third eye was closed...!!!

How about you!? Do you also love horror!? Share it with me...! HAPPY HALLOWEEN...!!!! c",)
