  • Author's Note


    The term 'amalgamation' pertains to a combination of two or more. This is a personal blog which is a combination of musings of my activities, thoughts, inspirations, ideas, and everything that happens around me.

  • Be inspired, have peace of mind


    As a personal blog, there are articles written not just for the sole intention of writing but are also directed to share experiences to uplift and inspire the downtrodden.

  • Love, love, love


    There's beauty in everything. Be filled with love as you listen to love songs you may want to sing along with.

  • Tragedies and Disasters


    Life isn't always about fun and happiness. Get a glimpse of me as I speak my mind about tragedies, disasters, and pains.

  • Hope


    Life won't have meaning if everyone turns blind and start to see no hope. There is always hope, just waiting to be lit. Read through articles filled with hope.

  • Movies and so much more!


    Occasionally, I'm inclined to write reviews for movies, places, restos, or just about anything. Watch out for those cutting remarks! =)

  • Journey


    Hey, life's a journey. What better way to immortalize oneself than through writing?

  • Share your thoughts!


    I would greatly appreciate it if you shared your thoughts with me. Please feel free to leave messages at the comments box below each post. Thanks!

Lost in Time

Appa: My Beacon of Inspiration | www.amalgamationspp.com

It's been an unbelievably long blog hiatus and I terribly miss blogging!

I looked at my last entry -- December 5, just a few weeks before Christmas. Where do I even begin to start writing again?

Well, the biggest reason of the extended hiatus was tropical storm Sendong that drowned the city of Cagayan de Oro. Between helping with the volunteer works, trying to continue to keep working, fetching water from far sources, it's been really tough trying to balance everything much less to even try and get a decent sleep while friends are going crazy looking for their drowned relatives and friends.

Many things had to be done because of the wide impact of the storm.

Thousands died.

All the while, I watched heroism at work coming from familiar faces, persons I see everyday right across the street, simple neighbors who stood up and did anything to help.

It was a rare opportunity that I am very honored to be able to see and be a part of, where people opened their homes to strangers whose houses drifted away with the raging flood leaving them only the clothes they wore.

I felt the strength of prayers binding everyone to hold on because there's hope pouring in from all over the globe. It was surreal.

Three months later, people have picked up the pieces and have begun reconstructing their lives. The loss of a friend, or a family member is heart-breaking, but people here have opened their eyes and have seen that despite the difficulties and the trials, hope is not something that can be washed away by a destructive flood or storm.

It is something far greater and bigger.

And for me, through it all, one great bestfriend opened the door to keep the positive attitude despite bad things that can happen. A bestfriend who listens and does not talk back, who loves unconditionally and with no limit, who looks at me everyday without fail having a sense of belonging and connection.

And that's really all I need to get by any storm.

Stay inspired! ♥
