Adrian Panganiban, The Singer, The Preacher of God's Love, The Man Who Inspires Mom and My Family

 A former teen actor. A singer. A couturier. A concert director.

Andrian Panganiban, 2015

Young Adrian Panganiban

God's love for you is not for being somebody. We don't love anyone for the looks, the clothes, the fancy car. We love other because, God love us and he want's all of us loving each other in the love of Christ.

How is this wonderful young man?

I would always acknowledge Bro. Adrian in his many wonderful works in the ministry, plus his being a good son to his Mom.

It's a joy coming from the heart when we heard Adrian story about how my Mom captured his heart, "Lumapit si Nanay sa kanya at may ini-abot na card, idagdag daw nya sa baon nya papuntang Holy land." He said: "Sister Miriam is like his Mom in many ways." May pasalubong din siyang cross from Holy Land para lng talaga kay Nanay. 

Our family always appreciates Bro. Adrian's many kind deeds, Madalas syang dumalaw sa hospital after ng kanyang busy working schedules para bisitahin at kaunting conversation to uplift Nanay spirit was always like a prayer, mga magagandang kwento na nakaka-gaan ng loob para sa aming mag anak. 

Remember that time spent with God is never wasted.
Always find time to talk to God wherever you go.

My 1st time at DFA Aseana

The first time I walked in at the Department of Foreign Affairs in Aseana at Roxas Boulevard, Macapagal in Pasay to renew the Maroon E-Passport.

SOL in front of DFA Building

I just handed to the DFA Officer our family appointment form for counter checking and get stamped and they lead us to our next destination. June 14, 2012, I filled up an online application, chose a 1:00 PM appointment and arrived at DFA Aseana about 2 hours earlier and have our early lunch at McDonald's located at the opposite street (So not to rush our selves).

To set an appointment visit this link http://www.passport.com.ph/set-appointment.

Our appointment was scheduled at 1:00 PM but needed to be there by 12:30noon. We're there 30min past 11:00 AM.

A reminder from DFA:

The public is hereby advised of the dress code. Those who are wearing the following attire shall not be permitted to enter the premises of DFA-ASEANA:
Sandos, spaghettis, backless, tubes
Rubber Slippers / Sandals (example Flip-flops, Ipanema, Havaianas, etc)
Sleepwear for minors below 7 years old, including infants

Upon entering gate 2, I presented our printed application form and went to confirm my schedule at the verification counter (tables seen right in front of Guards at Gate 2) before proceeding our way inside.

The processing area is located on the ground floor where it's probably the longest process to take. Lining up is bearable as the whole area is air-conditioned and seats are readily available so applicants are not standing the whole time, providing so much comfort especially for older people. One thing I realized was it's okay to line up already when you get there earlier before your scheduled appointment so I just ditched the idea of taking our early lunch. The process seems to be taking really fast with a lot of service windows open.

After submitting our application form and support documents and get an approved stamp. We headed to the second floor of the building at the Passport Enrollment Section to pay the Php950 regular processing fee.

I was then lead to Encoding Section just a few feet away from the cashier for data capturing (picture taking). No earings, No bangs, No hair ornaments, No eye contact lense, No colorful hair.

And just like most people who prefer to have their passport delivered, I proceeded to the Delivery counter and paid the Php120 delivery fee/per Passport via 2GO Express. We're out of the building before 3:30 PM.

I took the normal processing: Our passport will all be ready on July 12, 2012, and hopefully delivery will arrive on time as per scheduled.

I'm happy with the family appointment transaction we had experienced in this government office. I wish all government offices are like this. Peace and Love.

Round and Sweet


A FATHER means so many things when he's a man like you. You are always thought about in such a special way. You always do so much to brighten anyone's day. You bring such happiness to us and all others all year through.

Yes indeed we're so blessed to have a father someone like you in the family.

We may not shower you with praise nor mention your name in a song, and sometimes it seems that we forget the joy you spreads as you goes along, but it doesn't mean that we don't know the wonderful role that you always had for us and for everyone.

Near or far, down deep in my heart there is a place that is just for you alone that could fill me and our family with warm security and love. Wink!

An understanding heart, our source of strength
and of support right from the very start.

A constant readiness to help in a kind and thoughtful
way with encouragement and forgiveness
no matter what comes our way.


A special generosity and affection you always shower our family.


You and Me!

Will always be!

Nicholisha our little Ballerina

In life, as in the dance, grace glides on blistered feet. It doesn't matter where you are on the stage, just as long as you're there.

Charming Baby Nicholisha our little Ballerina

 Ballerina dress is my gift for Baby Nicholisha our little Ballerina.

She loves round shape, How's her pouted lips?

Why like this?
