Bicycle

I looked upon with curiosity in writing another story despite of a breathtaking experience and nostalgic day I never expected to have in Mine Thouk, Nyaung Shwe, Shan State, Myanmar. It was one cloudy Friday, twenty-seventh day of July when I found myself spaced out of so many random things rendering me into deep thoughts….

Being One of Them

I have been wanting to write about the excursion but never have the time for it. But since it’s a week-long holiday these days, I decided to indulge finishing a write-up of the said activity. It’s really been a year since I last posted something on my blog anyway. I was later informed going to…

Remember September!

My last month of volunteering has already ended and I feel proud that I have finished it with flying colors. So many things have happened already throughout this journey. I have found that it is difficult for me to string the words together with all the mixed thoughts I have now. Whether it is big…

Bountiful Signs of July

I have been working abroad for a year, and this is my first time to have been doing a volunteer work for a long period of time without going back home. This is very interesting for me though, because it actually makes me feel like a better person for helping someone in the community. It…

A Jubilant June

How is the month of June for you? Was it good? Was it bad? Did it bring you excitements or disappointments? If you were to ask me how was my June, it was truly amazing and fantastic, a truly jubilant month I would say. I haven’t had many photos for this month, but I really…

Highlights of May

May has been a great, exciting and memorable month for me just like any other months. And just as I hoped last May 1st, the said month has been a good one for me. Another month has come to an end and another set of wonderful memories have been collected as I walked along its…

The Wonderful School

(This heart-warming poem was written by Sai Phone Tip, a 12-year old Burmese and one of my Level 6 students in St. Aloysius Gonzaga Institute of Higher Studies, Taunggyi, Shan State, Myanmar. This was his first attempt in making his own poem in our English class, but it is simply amazing!) With the happiness of…

Amazing April Memories

“Time passes, things change, but memories will always stay where they are, in the heart.” – Sarah Moores Never have I noticed the details of each day passing by. The month of May is on its way. April may end, but I have collected more priceless memories along the way. Sometimes, I would reflect how…

Marching Along the Days of March

Who would’ve thought that the month of March has come to its end. I’ve been working here in S.A.G. for nine months and sad to say, one of our co-volunteers had to say goodbye. But, why should I feel sad? There’s no reason for me to be lonely because I know that life is that….

A Look at Fantastic February

February has just ended, and we’ve been working here for eight months. As always, students are fun to be with both inside and outside the classroom. The second semester in S.A.G. has successfully finished. Because summer promises to be a hectic time in this institute, summer classes will soon to open with the onset of…
