Packing woes!!

I will be traveling to Europe for a year and I'm worrying if I have packed what I need..

This feeling can be a spiritual dilemma.. what is important and what is unimportant.. what do I need and what I cant live without... what I don't want to spend for and what I can afford..

My departure from manila is June 11, at 1230am. The day of my birthday! A great day to start something new.

Flying to Jordan.. then to Sweden!

Take note.. I'm staying in one of the coldest countries in Europe.. another consideration to my packing woes.

I've started to pack the ff on zip lock bags:
10 t-shirts
10 pairs of socks
1 small mixer (beringer 502)
phone charger (nokia)
kitchie nadal cds (love letter)
2 pajamas
1 pair of slippers
1 pair of boots
fdd controller (recording equipment c/o beringer)
ear muff
2 nice hats
toiletries (shampoo, soaps, toothpaste, toothbrush)
3 pairs of jeans
2 nice dresses
2 sweaters
1 leather jacket
1 pair of rubber shoes

I dont want to be overwieght.. 20 kgs max!!
I dont want want my luggage to be heavy too :(

The pre-departure is as important as the travel, I believe one must be ready. I have been praying for this opportunity to travel for years and i need to be discerning of the good works God has prepared for me in advance in Europe. Pls pray for me too!

the very first lesson I learned from a dear friend is that we must not worry of what we would lose in our life's necessities - because He promised that he would take care of us! I believe you have all the things that you needed to pack along with you - your heart, your mind filled with greatness, your words & most of all your faith! You know who to call or IM when the need for some flannel jammies or comfort socks... I am soooo glad that you and Kitchie are off to a new adventure! Maybe I can swing by to have some chocolates with you guys & we can enjoy some NY pizza here!
I'll be in touch!
Just want to let you know that your presence has not been forgotten....

Take care!

Luis L. Pantoja Jr. THD

I went to a memorial service for Pasto Luis Pantoja a commemorative Prayer meeting hosted by GCF-Peel. It was a touching event for I only met Pastor Luis once here in Canada during a church picnic last month. Its a pity I did not get to talk to him.

In the prayer meeting I heard so many funny, meaningful stories about this great man. A man greatly loved and for he loved much.

Epitaph for his cremated remains: "A handful of ashes now vaulted in this corner, with nothing to boast but grace from his maker"

I happen to read his Limericks..

Limericks on my life

Limericks are short verses generally but not always funny. Here are some about my career

Once on fire, in a suit and tie
By the hand of God and the will of man

Now he's fired, in sackcloth retired
By the hand of man and the will of God

The Lord has given, He has taken away
I tread the path, He leads the way

Flip the new page, blank with no stain
God in my old ag…

Yangon to Bagan by JJ express bus. 1x1x1 seater ($20.99)The bus ride was long but bearable. Comfortable seats and the bus had a toilet.  It was cold so bring a jacket and a bonnet. The bus company provided a blanket, snacks, water and a neck pillow. - Bagan taxi to hotel 8T kyat to Shwe Na Di Guest House ( private room with bathroom $27) double occupancy. loved it.
