In 2008, hubby and his officemates were able to visit Tacloban City through the auspices of the company’s old patron. One of the places they visited was the Santo Niño Shrine in Tacloban City.

The Santo Niño Shrine used to be one of the 29 presidential rest houses of the late Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos.

Santo Niño is a representation of the infant Jesus Christ. He is the patron saint of Leyte.
In the background is the mosaic of Jesus Christ displayed on the wall.

There are multiple dating sites on the internet, which result in online dating horror and success stories. Relationships are not a bed of roses, but they have ups and downs, whether online or in real life. Having a great foundation will assist you to keep focused and in love although love matters are personal. The following are four approaches to online dating which will assist you;

  1. Sincerity

Realistically, at the end, you will have to meet that person go out for lunch or dinner. If you find them right for you, you will build a relation. This means that if you lied, your relationship will be in jeopardy. Online dating is all about your profile picture. It is the first thing that a person sees.  Create a profile that is gorgeous but honest; if you are a mother state it proudly. If anyone is interested in you, they will contact you and will not have any issue dating a mommy.

  1. Set your priorities and objectives for online suitors

Know what you are looking for; the qualities and characters.  Set priorities that you are looking for and not what would make other people happy. Give yourself pretty time and think of the qualities you value in people. This will assist you in narrowing down to your potential pool.

  1. Get in a site that perfectly fits close to your interest

Time is precious, and it is also when it comes to dating and searching for love. Use the site that will increase chances of meeting that kind of a person you are hunting. In large sites, there will be lots of potential dates, but mostly they will not be right for you since they are general. If you are divorced, and in search of a soulmate, a divorced dating site like will maximize the chances of getting a person whom you share the same qualities and priorities.

  1. Don’t send an email unless they possess the qualities you want.

I mean, like really, it will be a waste of time. You have read the profile and you have noticed very few things that attract you to that person, don’t send a message. It will only be based solely on the appearance, or you are thinking with the sobbing organ between your legs and doing little real thinking.

  1. Live your own Life

Dating requires effort and can consume a lot of your time. Don’t forget to maintain your life; the activities you enjoy, a career, and your family.


To ensure you find an individual who is honest and compatible with you, you should make sure they can find you. If you lie about yourself, you will be setting up yourself for a big disappointment and wasted many wasted opportunities. Beware of online liars and trust your instincts.

Gensan Tuna Festival 2017

Our niece making two thumbs up beside the Tuna Festival Float. Borrowed from her Facebook account.

If hubby had his way he would be visiting his hometown as many times as possible. He misses the old place in General Santos City and staying for a couple of days is not enough for a busy man like him. The last time he went home may not be a happy occasion but at least he gets to bond with her siblings, nephews and nieces at the beach. They spent a few hours swimming, eating, and listening to music being played at the nearby cottage. The songs have brought back so many memories from his generation. He check it out! the lyrics of each song so he could sing along. He wishes to go back to Gensan for the Tuna Festival in September.
