Digging Up Your Digs

500 years from now, an archaeologist accidentally stumbles on the ruins of your home, long buried underground. What will she learn about early-21st-century humans by going through (what remains of) your stuff?


A framed or laminated photo of my little one playing or holding a 21st century gadget. I don’t have a chest of gold but I have numbers of photo albums and frames of my daughter that I really keep in a safe place. There are unexpected disasters or calamities like floods or earthquakes in the Philippines so I have them all in a safe ground. Just protecting all precious memories. 🙂



OFW: Work Hard, Never Give Up!


The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.   

Vince Lombardi

Your dreams and inspiration drive you to work hard and be dedicated especially when your guts tell you that you’re surely getting what you’re aiming for. I’ve seen many people work relentlessly in order to get what they want no matter what risks and sorts of sacrifices they may take.  I salute these kind of individuals hence I thought of a simple way I can applaud them. It is by featuring them in my blog Beats of Pieces. These people deserve to be appreciated and recognized. Therefore today I start one person…collage

One of the people I’ve mentioned is Miss Mary Louise Gersamio, an OFW (Filipino Overseas Worker) from Cebu City Philippines. She thought not to give up easily in trying times rather do her best and work her way to get hold of her dreams and ambition. Continue reading “OFW: Work Hard, Never Give Up!”

Worst Times

A flower with prayers for typhoon victims

My heart bleeds for what happened in Central Philippines – Samar and Leyte and neighboring typhoon affected provinces. The news I see on every network is heartbreaking and I know how difficult it is for my fellow Pinoys out there. I’ve been in similar situation when I was a kid but theirs now is totally devastating and traumatic than what I’ve witnessed and experienced long ago.

I stopped watching news because it breaks my heart to see the pitiful sight.  However I read online news but skip the photos. I still want to know if the conditions have become better as days go by. I also learn that many foreign countries heartily donate goods, money and services to the victims. I am so humbled by the concern of the world.

The only thing I can do now is to offer my fervent prayers for the victims and participate in giving donations and clothes to be transported to the Philippines from Thailand.

And through this blog, I am thanking the countries who are helping my fellowmen in this worst times… Thank you, we are forever indebted to you!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece


My grandmother used to tell us stories when we were small. One of them is about Mt Hibok-hibok and that this volcano has caused plenty of damage when it erupted in 1951. Some of her friends and relatives died during earthquake and avalanche of volcanic lava and stones. Some have survived but they got burns on face, shoulders or hands. It also destroyed hundreds of homes due to intense ash rains. I even saw one of my grandmother’s friends who has scars from the said eruption.

This is located in Mambajao, Camgiuin Philippinesd and to this date, some parts affected by this volcanic explosion are used as tourist spots in the province.

Mt Hibok-hibok is still active and permanently monitored by volcanologists.

It is a beautiful sight in the province but I call this mountain as nature’s …deadly masterpiece1
