Something New

When I was in college, I discovered my little interest in video editing. I believe my interest for making videos had been there since I was young.  Since my dad had his first video camera (remember those really big ones?), every special event was on the record. Too bad when our house was destroyed by fire, we lost all of those videos. I’m not sure if some were still saved. 😦

Anyway, that was when I learned how to operate the video camera. And I’ve been taking a lot of videos since then. From school projects, family outings and even random videos at home, I just enjoyed either taking videos or being in videos. 🙂

And when I learned the basics of video editing and some few tricks along the way, I just wanted to make and edit so many videos. Too bad I didn’t really consider pursuing it. But it’s never too late, right?

This site has been running for a long time but I haven’t really put anything in it for a long time. And today, I was thinking I need to put something new in the site which I will enjoy doing. (And hopefully, will have the time doing it). This got triggered by the way when I downloaded this mobile app called, “Dubsmash”. How it works is that there are different lines from movies, ads, musicals that you can dub with your video in it. I had so much fun that I had to send my videos to my brother. Well, my brother is really a better actor than me, his videos were so hilarious! I might share those videos someday. *wink*

So anyway, I’m planning to put a video blog for “Beautifully Waiting”. I’m still thinking of the concept and how I could make it work. I’m excited though as this will be my first time.

So if you ran into this post and would have some ideas, feel free to share. I am very much interested to know like what tools I can use or concepts or just anything.

For starters, here’s the official You Tube Channel – Beautifully Waiting going videos.

Pray for me! 🙂


Something New

The first time I tried baking cupcakes was with some friends at church. I never had a clue about baking until that day. For me, it was very,very complicated. But then, when I saw how it was prepared and done, I realized it wasn’t that complicated at all. I can absolutely do it on my own. And so, from then on, I developed a little interest on baking.

It’s something I want to learn more especially that I’m really a “bread” person. I’d love to learn how to make bread. Who wouldn’t want freshly baked breads everyday, right?

Here’s a picture of my first try of making cream puff. Well, it wasn’t bad for a first time (or I dunno, I’m no expert). Though, I tried doing it again and the second time was much better! You can find here the recipe I used for my second try -> http://gooddinnermom.com/aunt-pats-famous-cream-puff-recipe/. I liked this recipe better since it has custard filling.


If you haven’t tried baking at all, I suggest you give it a try. If you have an oven or even just an oven toaster, you can start from there.  All you need is a set of measuring cups and spoons! 🙂 You can start with simple recipes of butter cupcakes.

Or, you can always try other things that you haven’t done. It’s nice to try something new from time to time that would make your day productive. It’s actually refreshing.

Here are other things I suggest you can try:

    – find a new sport, some of my friends got so engaged with “Ultimate” (famous term: frisbee)

   – setup your own blog site, if you enjoy writing journals, it’s time you start a blog site and start sharing to others, your life could be an encouragement

  – volunteer on weekends, some of the girls I disciple volunteer their Saturdays in tutoring less fortunate kids

  – get artistic, it could be doing crafts (which I also enjoy!) or doing designs for printed shirts and the like 

 – read a book, if you’re not into reading books, I suggest you try finishing one, doesn’t have to be a novel, a pocket size, with thin pages can be a good start

There are so many things you can actually try doing. You just have to make sure that it is practical and beneficial not just to you but also to the people around you.

If you have other suggestions, feel free to share 🙂
