“HAPPY New Year” in French!

Pouring in with overflowing grace before our eyes is the brand new scroll marking 2014.

Bringing in the heartwarming message of good health, bountiful blessings and wishes for New Year’s prosperity in different languages: Salud (Spanish), Prosit (German) and A Votre sante (French)!

Anticipating goodwill, our sisters and brothers all over Mother Earth embrace each other as they bid goodbye to 2013 and raise their voices to join the ringing bells of ecstasy in the new morning of 2014. Our best life is just unfolding!

International Merrymaking

How do the world’s citizens from the four corners of the globe enjoy the message of the new times?

Come! Together let us travel upon the magic carpet and fly to the foreign lands and shores. Up, up and away!

Yes! Below us we see the breath taking sights and sounds of revelry across the world.

Beating their tom tom drums in Africa, the Afrikaans shout “GELUKKIGE NUWE JARR”; bursting and buzzing with their vodka cups , the Russians from the Siberian steppes roar “S NOVIM GODOM”; while in Hawaii we hear the booming songs accompanied by their enchanting guitars of the Hawaiians belting  out “HAWOLI MAKAHIKI HOU”!

Yahoo, how a blessed 2014 awaits each one of us.

Adieu 2013
In contrast, we witness the gentle farewell from old woman /man year 2013 who walks away towards the orange/purplish sunset. Looking back at us with her dark pools of moist eyes, she whispers. ”Adieu.” Tenderly she says “Goodbye, Goodbye. What a roller-coaster year. Joy midst jangling storms, light after the dark typhoon. Now, only the memories remain."

Yes! For the goodwill and goodness we receive and thenceforth share and spread around, we can utter - Gracias, Danke and dacal a salamat.

Family and friends were and are always the wellspring of comfort. Particularly, I say this message.

Thank you Dr. Adel Tuazon and brother Dr. Rainer Tuazon. Your gift of healing inspires me. Countless grateful patients through the years are grateful to both of you...Dacal a dacal Salamat. You light our world with your care, compassion and commitment. May you and your families be blessed for all times!

Hello 2014

Aloha to the spectacular, golden and fantastic dawn of 2014.
Whether you are from Angeles City or Los Angeles, California or from Manila to magnificent France… may your cup of good tidings, lightheartedness and gladness runneth over with unending graces.
You and I are one in welcoming the great expectation of this year of the Horse (Chinese calendar).

Masaplalang bayung banua...Bonne Annee!
