Tell Me Thursday: Your Favorite Christmas Gifts

Today’s question needs no introduction so I’ll jump right in! Tell me: What are some of the best Christmas gifts you’ve ever received? Here are some of mine: 1) A painting made by the students from Young Focus – It was such a beautiful surprise. Last December 2009, while I was driving to the Young Focus Student Center in Tondo, I was talking to God about how much I wanted to travel but didn’t know how that would be possible at that...

Tell Me Thursday: Thanksgiving Edition

Even if we don't celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday in the Philippines, I think it's always great to have an excuse to pause, look back, and give thanks for the awesome blessings that came into our lives.

Tell Me Thursday: 10-20-2010

Did you notice the date today? Sorry I couldn’t resist! :) IN OTHER NEWS… I was wondering… What do you do to get some exercise? From elementary to college, volleyball was my sport of choice. But seeing that you need 11 other people to play with you, I stopped playing when I wasn’t in school anymore. I’ve tried a bunch of stuff, but I have yet to fall in love with another sport or fitness routine. I have to admit...

Tell Me Thursday: Unleash your inner geek…

I’m currently organizing my computer, so I’m in the process of removing unnecessary applications and searching for some that would really be useful. Take note: I said “useful”…I’m trying to stay away from any more distractions! So here’s my question for you today: Aside from the usual MS Office/iWork/iLife/Adobe stuff, can you name some programs or applications that have helped you? Here are my 3 picks (take note that I’m a Mac user): 1) Mindnode – mindmapping software that helps...

Tell Me Thursday: What are your unique or unusual talents?

Once again, it’s time for Tell Me Thursday! Are you a master at turning trash into art? Are you a walking sports almanac? I want to know! What are your unique or unusual talents? Here are a couple of mine: I’m a doodler. I can listen to a whole talk and doodle at the same time and not miss an important detail. For the record, I do know when to pause to write down an important point! I try not...

Tell Me Thursday: What have you been reading lately?

It’s Book Fair week here in Manila, so in keeping with the theme, the question for today is: What have you been reading lately? I have a bad habit of reading several books at the same time. I’m crazy, I know. :) Here are titles that are on my priority list: 1) Linchpin by Seth Godin 2) Entrusting the Key by Ali Smith 3) Dreaming in Chinese: Mandarin Lessons in Life, Love, and Language by Deborah Fallows Your turn! What are...

Tell Me Thursday: School Talk!

For today’s Tell Me Thursday post, I decided to do something different: I asked friends from different backgrounds (music, TV, radio, sports, publishing, business, etc.) to share their answers to get the ball rolling! Today’s Tell Me Thursday question is… What is one topic or subject you wish they had taught when you were in school? Andi Manzano: “Character building & responsibility :) I wish school taught me how to do things my own way and not just all purely...

Tell Me Thursday: Let’s talk about blogs!

Two Thursdays ago, I asked about books. This week, it’s all about blogs! Through the years, blogs have inspired, educated, and entertained me. I love learning from experts, friends, and peers, and I’ve picked up ideas and thoughts that have been helpful and useful in different areas of my life. Tell me: Who are the bloggers or what are the blogs that you follow? (And if you have a blog, share your blog’s address so we can check it out!)...

Tell Me Thursday: What has been speaking to your heart lately?

It’s Thursday, and you know what that means! Tell me: Is there a quote, verse, song, poem, or word that’s been resonating with you lately? What is it?
