Yesterday’s road trip with Pastor Sohl, Tito Elvan and sami :D
I got to drive 160 miles from Baguio to manila for the 1st time.left baguio a 3am
1) Had breakfast at mcdo tarlac @ 5am
2) arrive at manila city hall, applied for my birth certificate, it was surprisingly easy and fast. Kudos to the manila city hall peeps.
lunch at burger king. Whopper jr.s and mushroom swiss goodness
3) tito elvan took over as we drove to ortigas. it was fun getting a bit lost. adventure-mode.
-picked up the Yamaha Mio scooter that i won from the 7-eleven raffle draw at the Yamaha showroom in Mandaluyong.
4) Stopped over at SM-san fernando.
-Found a JB’s music store where sami couldn’t resist to buy new demon-drive beaters for his double-peds and a pair of vic-firth sticks.
5) Had dinner at dennis the grillboy, unli rice!
drove back home to baguio.
thank God for the great trip filled with laughs and cardiac delights. :D

I’m really grateful for the little lessons i have with my dad. like that moment when I was driving over the speed limit on McArthur Highway this morning and my dad,sitting in the passenger’s seat, tells me to slow down. At first I was a tad indignant, saying “..but Pa,I can handle it.” Pa replied,”Just because you can, it doesn’t mean that you should”. All of a sudden I realize that He’s been driving for over 20 years and I’ve just got my license 2 weeks ago and,with 2 decades worth of experience behind my Dad’s words,i settled that it’d be wise to swallow my pride and obey.
"Just because you can, it doesn’t mean that you should.", those words echoed in my mind the entire day. Growing up, I’ve heard countless reminders from my parents, like "Study hard because a good education is the only inheritance we can pass on to you." "Don’t jump into conclusions, think before you speak." "leave some pizza for your brothers! Don’t eat it all.." and many times they’re taken for granted.
"Just because you can, it doesn’t mean that you should."
As i was thinking about it, I felt dozens of past situations fall into that simple sentence.
"Just because you think you can handle a committed relationship, it doesn’t mean that you should."
"Just because you can be brutally honest to people, it doesn’t mean that you should."
Just because you can do the job of being a radio d.j., it doesn’t mean that you should. (‘coz you graduated with an architecture degree not a communications degree)
"Just because you can charm your way into a woman’s heart, it doesn’t mean that you should."
"Just because you can cheat without getting caught, it doesn’t mean that you should."
"Just because you can overpower people, it doesn’t mean that you should."
Meekness, obedience, and surrendering to a higher purpose.
a simple lesson on a 4-hour drive to Baguio city.
