Thank You 2013 and Welcome 2014

Wazzup Pilipinas!

New year is once again welcomed and celebrated as before with a good vibes and positive hope. Although there are lot of bad things, calamities and tragedies we’ve been through still we were able to smile. But how do Filipinos typically spend New Year’s Eve?

A minute before January 1 we Filipinos used to have a countdown

10-9-8- each second comes with a hope of a better year

-7-6-5- with a vision of a lucky year, lucky year not only for yourself but also for your family and friends

-4-3-2-comes with a thankful heart for all the experiences, blessings and miracles that you’ve been through, because of this we’ve became a better man

and -1- for the prayer that HE will guide us in the new year to come.

As the clock reached 12:00, Fireworks, trumpets, whistles, horns etc. started to make noise. Noise that represents joy, hope,patience and courage to face tomorrow. After this they will have their so called media noche a small feast with foods that each of the family member would share. The midnight will be full of happiness that starts up their new year. A happiness that they wish to last until the last day of 2014

To each and every Filipinos all over the world Happy new year everyone J Let’s welcome 2014 with a smile, Full of happiness and love because even if we are not the wealthiest man on earth still we are the most blessed one because our Creator love us :).

Welcome 2014!

"It's 2014.

Are we becoming better, or are we becoming bitter?
Is life bringing out the best in us or the beast in us?
Are we blessing others or vexing them?
Are we assets to this world or are we liabilities wherever we go?

Think about these questions and find the answers really quick before 2015 catches you off guard. You have one year, and the timer starts NOW.

Failure to do so will be your life's greatest tragedy."

  1. Wazzup Pilipinas!

    I like the last part of this article. I think the message of this is to become a better person, to be that someone that you are dreaming of. Someone that is halfway in fulfilling her dreams. What you are in the past is not really important. We should start the year right and finish it with a smile on our faces and having no regrets. :)

  2. Good job for a great article! I like how you showed the positive and negative parts of 2013 and 2014. I also love this article's positive view of life. Keep up the good work!

  3. A new year is always full of surprises and challenges for us to take, this article defines it very well and elaborates on how we celebrate it as a country, as a family, and as an individual. All in all I appreciate this article and hope for more good things to come this year..cheers!

  4. Let us welcome the year 2014 with open arms and a vision to excel in everything we will do. The Lord has given us a new year to start fresh and make our new beginnings. We must take this opportunity and use it wisely. We need to be open minded with what is in store for us, for these will make us stronger and better persons in the future. Happy New Year! :)

  5. Filipinos do celebrate the New Year with a big BANG! Full of hopes and dreams for each and everyone of us. Yes! We are among those luckiest person here on Earth because we don't count our blessings with the amount of money we learn nor the number of material things we have. It is true happiness and contentment in life that make us differ from the rest.

  6. It is nice to see that all of us wants to begin a new better and more prosperous life in this New Year. Just do your best and don't forget to thank God for everything he gave to you this past years and ask guidance for this new years incoming challenges.
