There is always something to be thankful for!

Today on Thanksgiving, be thankful for what you have,in spite of the many things happening around including the calamities, there is always something we have to be grateful and thankful for.There are 2 parts to THANKSGIVING…the “giving” part and the “thanks” part. They occur in cycle… the more you give, the more you’ll be thankful for because good deeds come back “ten fold”. I hope you have so much to be thankful for, not just today but everyday…Being THANKFUL should never be a one time out of the year deal . It should be-everyday. We wake up we ought to be thankful…There is always someone-somewhere worse off than you…so we owe it to ourselves and God to be thankful and prayerful..

As long as you continue to work hard, push forward, be positive and live a proper life, your dreams will come to fruition.

If people or a person hurts you, brings you down, makes you sad, then let them go…….not with hatred, but in a loving way, just don’t let them into your heart.

Always be positive, not negative. Be giving, not greedy. Be loving, not cold. Be generous, not selfish. It will all come back to you.

The world is in front of you, grab on to it, and enjoy the ride that life will provide for you.Happy Thanksgiving everyone! May The Lord increase the reasons you are most grateful for. Enjoy the celebration !

Actual books don’t need a reset button. :))

My sister had a big scare last night when her Kindle suddenly froze and everything went blank. I thought she got a defective one but a call to Amazon (wow, they actually called my sister) immediately resolved the problem. All they did was reset the Kindle and it came back. Amazing service, eh? For hours, I really thought the world crashed on her. It does create a feeling of vulnerability that a whole book collection could get wiped out but Amazon’s service is just amazing. Those guys deserve a medal for real quality service. A lot of specialized books though are still not available in Kindle. I wish they have Thomas Mann and Zygmunt Bauman’s books in Kindle version already.

Watch THIS

If you have time for all those nonsense videos, etc then you definitely should MAKE time for this! The majority of the people in the government came from University of the Philippines. If they were so good, why are we where we are now. Be part of the solution and not be part of the problem. I have a high regard for people from University of the Philippines, and this is a timely reminder to them and to us all. As they say in Mexico whenever a public official is sworn in: “May the Nation hold you to account for what you have said.”

It is PNoy’s first 100 days

Professor Winnie Monsod weighs in and gives a “reality check” on the statement of PNoy regarding the first 100 days. As with all Mareng Winnie clips, this is a must watch! 😀 I noticed that in every President Noynoy’s speech, there is always a part where he blames the last administration instead of expounding on what he will do and had really achieved.  One of the nuisances of democracy like us! am still hopeful that the turtle like prosecution process will bear fruit in the days to come, like it or not, damn if he does, damn if he don’t will haunt him for the next six years if he fails to deliver one of his major campaign promise i.e. welcoming all Hello bigwigs to jail who trampled our democracy last 2004 and the systemic corruption that put this country to stand still for nine hellish years.

I don’t think anyone can turn around the country’s situation in 100 days. We should  give President Noynoy some time…but then again I will remain vigilant as a Filipino. Too many variables, too many distractions…in my opinion 100 days are not enough for a report card. To bring everybody singing the same sheet of music will take months or even years. Most of the problems he inherited from the previous administration are not overnight fix. One thing for sure, he has some plans for a better Philippines. Whether he delivers or not will be dependent upon on the kind of support he receive especially from the non-believers.

We might not feel it yet but President Noynoy has been a huge difference in the fight against corruption. My blockmate in Teaching Education   who brings in Tempur, Sub-Zero, Miele and other such brands into the country said that she only has to pay the correct taxes now that she does not have to bribe anyone in Customs. Is that why Rustan’s is kinda empty nowadays?! Hhmm, it is truly hard to be so used to not pay what the government is due. The new customs chief replaced all the frontline people, not to mention all the drawers are locked, etc, etc. That’s true… There were also some CCTV cam installed, but the best thing the commissioner did is to raise all the target collection good job on the new customs chief!

A lot of people were quick to rate PNOY on his first 100 days! Instead of rating others…..how about using the same standards (you used in rating PNOY) to rate ourselves? How we done enough? Did we make the Philippines a better place for our least unfortunate brothers and sisters these past 100 days? or is the usual lip service? If we demand change, we need to change ourselves too! NOW! Among all the nationalities in Asia, it is the Filipinos who need to have a sense of discipline. Honestly, that old slogan comes true: Sa ikauunlad ng bayad, disiplina ang kailangan. And that includes becoming tolerant, becoming less critical and becoming more open to advancement. The Philippines lags behind because of our government, and because of us. Some of us have misplaced values.

Government service has been corrupted to the point that it seems pretty hopeless to reform it. I hope President Noynoy does not tire of running after the crooks in the government. No doubt the former President Arroyo administration made it difficult for PNoy administration to move the nation forward with all the anomalies she left behind. But this is no reason for the delays of the instituting reforms. No big tax cheat has been sued. The Arroyos are still running free. PNoy’s cabinet is divided. PNoy should get his act together now. The President is the one who decides that. If he remains true to his oath of office and do right to his country, the citizenry would rally around him and no foe nor critic nor detractor, however venomous, could make a dint against his leadership and reputation. But if he follows the path of banditry and betrayal that was traditionally trudged by his class and his predecessors, then he may expect a coalition of forces against his misrule and misuse of power. He would earn a reputation worse than her college professor GMA. And if he would sully his name, he would also sully the name of his family and forbears with no hope of ever recuperating again. The ball is in his hands; the citizens await his moves.

My Blog Name Story

This has got to be one of the most challenging posts I’ve had to articulate to date. There have been many questions in recent weeks about the name of my blog and so I thought it would be a good idea to clarify once and for all. This post hopefully will be my last with regards to the name of this blog that have transpired recently. This is not exactly my first blog and this blog is a written and edited by me. At this point, as others have noticed the name of my blog is Enayi. For your information, my name is Reynalyn. Back when I was younger, I have a few close relatives who called me “Enay” even up to the present. Some friends also wanted to call me Enay. That’s why I decided to name this blog as ENAYI.

Yesterday morning when I was in SM Megamall, I heard that the meanings of Enayi are the following: “fool, booby, sucker, dupe, chump, mug, patsy, and gullible”. But in all fairness, usually these unfortunate “meanings” I don’t really mind it. You know what? I don’t even know why I’m explaining myself, think whatever the hell you want to think – I’ll get more writing in which may ultimately help me able to share my thoughts more on this blog.

I used to write in journals long ago. I think I have a total of around 20 books filled with my thoughts. I have a passion for writing and I’m a growing and a learning person everyday. For the record, I’m open to suggestions. But at the end of the day, it is my decision that should be executed. After all, I’m the one accountable for the consequences that may arise with such decision.

I’ll be linking to this information from Learn more about this Blog , but for now I wanted to get them posted here. If you are unsure about something, for questions about this blog, please contact me. Thank you and God bless us all! 🙂

For we are all lifelong learners: Happy Teacher’s Day ♥


Today is World Teachers Day! Cheers to all educators, teachers, trainers, professors, doctors, and everyone who advocates the passing on of knowledge! This reminds me of,”Teacher appreciation makes the world of education go around.”- Helen Peters

Why do teachers deserve a special day? Because some of the best, funniest, and kindest as well as most charming, wonderful & giving people I know are teachers. Because in teaching profession requires bravery, patience and heart—three traits that the world sorely lacks. Because, quite frankly, teaching is about love. Cheers to all the teachers who moved, molded and mentored me! Deeply grateful to all whom have been my teachers, inside the classroom and out.

To all the teachers out there, especially to those who changed my life, please take a bow. 😀 Thank you for being my inspiration and role models! HAPPY WORLD TEACHERS’ DAY!!! ☼
