That is how Bayanmall Online Shopping Philippines started. Unlike what it has been now, before it was just a small online shop networking for every OFW to their loved ones left in the Philippines. But because of compassion and great hard work of the people behind this success, Bayanmall Online Shopping Philippines is now shooting up the peak of its career.

Before we go any further of its success, let us first take a visit of what Bayanmall Online Shopping Philippines really is about.

Bayanmall Online Shopping Philippines is an Online Shop that supports Overseas Filipino Workers all over the world. It intends to cater the needs and desired orders of our OFWs for their family left behind. In contrast with the long, complicated and extravagant process of sending gifts and items in the country; Bayanmall Online Shopping Philippines offers them an easier, quick and cheaper way of doing it all without losing its quality.

How? First, they should visit the online website and scan for their order. Then if they have finalized their picks they can have a fast track transaction with Bayanmall Online Shopping Philippines assigned personnel to entertain their orders or concerns about the payment. Of course, the customer would have to give the specific location of the receiver in the Philippines to avoid conflicts and confusions. In this way, Bayanmall Online Shopping Philippines can personally send their ‘padala’ straight to them or to the nearest Bayanmall Online Shop Philippines padala branch. They will just have to wait for a few days and before they know it, their orders have already reached their loved ones!

However, Bayanmall Online Shop Philippines does not just stop there. More than all the transactions and deals, what amazes us is how a single order could touch and reach hearts even in great distance. Still we are astonished of how Filipinos abroad reunite with the ones they’ve left through simple giving. But now, as we continue helping them we’ve realized that it’s not the gift or item that really matters. It is the thought, the heart of the giver who’s willing to make his loved ones happy and delighted. We should indeed say that it is what we call ‘family’.

And we believe that this is what makes Bayanmall Online Shop stand out from the rest, for it is not just technically and geographically involved. Bayanmall Online Shop sometimes can also be quoted into that single word called “family”.

Most Epic Graduation, You Mustn’t Experience.

Before we fall into tears and get emotional to the approaching end of this point of your life’s journey,

As we go on
We remember
All the times we
Had together
And as our lives change
Come whatever
We will still be
Friends Forever

 

laugh, laugh, laugh HARD , jump off your seats and run out of breath with this epic fail graduation moments that you surely don’t want to experience.

And now that the graduation season’s fast approaching, here’s a little reminder to all of our aspiring graduates to take an extra little precaution upon savoring the very moment of receiving their diploma.

 

 

 

BENEFITS:

Well, to get that much attention from the crowd more than the top honors do is quite a price from the too much humiliation you get from teasing friends afterwards.

Plus, surely you’ll never ever be forgotten whenever there’s an upcoming batch reunion. Certainly, everybody in your batch will look forward to see your other amazing stunts again.

LOOKING AT THE BRIGHTER SIDE:

At the end of the day, everything that’s embarrassing and unfortunate as of the moment can always turn into a source of genuine laughter and smiles.

Ngunit masisi niyo ba ako kung kayo ang nasa kalagayan ko? Minsan ba ay naranasan niyo nang
mawalay sa taong minamahal? Yung alam mong buhay siya ngunit daig pa ng kanyang katamhimikan ang isang patay? At ang maramdamang unti-unti ng nasisira ang iyong mga pangarap na kasama ninyong binuo. Alam ko ang pakiramdam na iyan dahil minsan ko na itong naransan. At maaaring habambuhay ko na ring iindahin ang sakit na dulot nito kung hindi ko hahamakin ang lahat maging ang MAGNAKAW.

Hindi ito magiging sulating puno ng galit at puot sa puso. Sawa na kasi ako doon. Tama na ang
lampas labindalawang taon simula nung iwan kami ng ama namin para maging manhid ang puso ko. Sa
totoo lang, gusto ko lamang malaman niya ang matagal ko ng gustong iparating sa kanya na hindi ko
lang magawa-gawa dahil sa mahal ng babayaran ko dahil sa overseas call nga ito.

Noon, namuhay akong isang prinsesang puno ng pagmamahal ng kanyang amang Hari at Inang Reyna
habang tinatahak ang daan tungo sa prinsipe ng aking buhay. Ngunit syempre hindi muna ang prinsipe
ang tatalakayin ko ngayon kahit na gustong-gusto ko.

happy Father and little girl

Lagi kaming magkasundo ni Papa at laging magkasangga sa anumang bagay. Sabi nga nila mas malapit daw ako noon sa kanya dahil may sarili kaming pagkakaintindihan at koneksyon. Sa kanya ko raw ata nakuha ang pagka ‘jologs’ ko sa buhay. Kada pag-uwi niya sa bahay ay sinasamahan niya akong maglaro.

At tuwing Sabado, magkasama kaming umuupo sabay kinakanta ang paborito naming awitin na “Gatyu belib in”.

Ngunit isang araw ay nagbago ang takbo ng fantaserye ko na sanang buhay. Gumising na lamang akong may kaharap na mga bagahe at maleta sa ibabaw ng kabinet. Naisip ko, ito na ba ang usong bag
ngayon? Sana ganun na lang talaga, pero hindi. Sa araw na iyon naglaho lahat ng pangarap at
paniniwala ko. Kasi, kasabay ng malalaking bag na iyon ay ang pagtangay sa akin ng isang kalaro,
karamay, kaibigan at ama.

Man at the Airport with SuitcaseNilapitan ko siya. Bawat hakbang, isang patak. Bawat patak, sobrang sakit. Habang nasa kalagitnaan na ako papunta sa kanya, bigla akong napahinto. Hindi ko pala kaya. At nung mga panahong nasa harap ko na siya nagsibagsakan na ang mga traydor kong luha. Wala na akong ibang nasabi kundi “Pa, sama na lang ako sayo. Sige na pa, sama na lang ako sayo please . Please.. “.

Yun ang unang Paskong nawalay siya sa amin. Ang Paskong tatlong pinggan lamang ang inihain namin sa mesa pagsapit ng Noche Buena. Nakakapanibago ngunit ito ay naulit ng naulit hanggang sa nasanay na ako. Di kalaunan ay natuklasan kong permanente na pala ito. Madalas kong tinatanong kung bakit at paano niya nagawang iwan kami noon. Ngunit ngayon mas naglalaro na sa isipan ko kung paano siya nabubuhay at nagdiriwang ng Pasko na ‘di na kami ang kasalo.

Umalis daw siya upang mabigyan kami ng magandang buhay pero mahirap intindihin ‘yon noon. Kaya
iniisip ko na lang na lagi siyang nakasakay sa bawat eroplanong nakikita ko sa himpapawid.
Tumatakbo ako at hinahabol ko ito habang sinisigaw ang “Papa! Papa! Hello Pa! I miss you!
Pasalubong!Balik ka na dito! Babaaaaay!”. Akala ko kaya kong lokohin ang sarili ko sa teorya ko sa
mga eroplano ngunit hindi. Wala pa rin akong amang katabi sa pagtulog.Little girl running on meadow with sunset

Ngayon gusto ko siyang makita at mahagkan. Sasabihin ko sa kanya ang mga pangyayari sa buhay ko. Kung paano ko nalaman na “Got to believe” pala ang tamang titulo ng kanta.
At ang pinakanakakadismayang parteng hindi niya nasaksihan, ang mga sandaling
napatunayan kong tama siya nung sinabi niyang “Maganda ang timbre ng boses mo ……… Subukan mo na
lang pumasok sa tono”, pambihirang buhay ‘to!

“Ikaw man ay amang ipinagkait sa akin ng panahon at pagkakataon, gusto kong malaman mong mahal
kita at napatawad na kita sa matagal ng panahon. Mabigyan lang ako ng isang sandaling kasama ka
wala na akong ibang gagawin kundi ang punuin ito ng masasayang alaala. Nais kong malaman mong
nandito lang ako naghihintay sa’yo at sabihing – Anak, para sa iyo ako’y nagbabalik”.

M.U- Mag-isang Umiibig </3

M.U- Mag-isang Umiibig

Bago mo tuluyang basahin to, huhulaan ko. Huwag mong sabihing isa ka lang sa milyon-milyong tao na nabiktima rin tulad ko?

 

O tama na iyang pagngiti, sabi na nga ba eh!

Well, ganyan nga siguro talaga ang buhay. You really can’t have it all.

Naranasan niyo na bang umibig at ibigin? Ako kasi oo. Ngunit ang malaking pagkakamali ko lang ay yung bahaging inakala kong ako rin ay kanyang iniibig.

Yung feeling mo na pareho kayo ng nararamdaman, iyon pala masyado lang malawak ang iyong imagination. Yung feeling na binibitbit niya yung bag mo tuwing uwian pero ginagawa pala niya ‘yun sa lahat ng babaeng kaklase mo. Yung feeling na akala mo magtatapat siya sayo dahil pawis na pawis at nangangatog siyang nakatutok sa iyo ngunit ang totoo ay mangungutang lang ng pamasahe.

Yung feeling na feel na feel mo na love letter na ang ibinigay niya sa’yo sa high school graduation pero nakita mo ang iba mo pang mga kaibigan na may hawak ding kaparehong-kaparehong liham.

 

 

Yung feeling na akala mo magiging kayo na, ‘yun pala talagang feeling mo lang yun lahat!

Masakit? Nakakatawa? Relate much? Di ko kayo masisisi, it’s like an epidemic disease sa mga babae sa kapanahunan ko. Assumera, best in Assuming Awards, Hopya at iba pa. Iyan iStock_000036410142_Largeang tawag sa akin ng mga kaibigan ko matapos nilang malaman ang katangahang ininda ko sa apat na buong taon sa hayskul.

 

Di niyo naman siguro ako masisisi. Kung di lang din naman kasi siya parang traffic enforser na laging nagbibigay ng signs eh di sana di na napadaan at huminto ang puso ko sa kanya.

 

He’s my bestfriend.

 

Lahat na ata ng tao sa campus namin ay akala na kami na maliban sa kanya. Ikaw ba naman ang ihatid sa kanto ng bahay niyo araw-araw( dahil magkasunod lang ang kanto namin pero kahit na!), ang itext at kumustahin araw-araw, ang bigyan ng daily supply ng papel dahil tinatamad kang kumuha sa bag mo, at laging sinasamahan sa mga lakad at school activities. Kitams? Aminin mo na kasi, di mo rin ako masisisi. I assumed because he made me do so, maybe without him knowing.

I thought we had mutual feelings for each other. Naalala ko pa nga yung araw na nagtext siya sa akin ng “I love you”. Yun pala, it’s a group message.

Iyong tipong isesend mo sa lahat and then huhulihin mo kung ano ang magiging reaksyon nila.    Muntikan na nga akong magreply ng “I love you too” eh.

Ang daming beses na siguro akong nag-assume na aamin na siya, at maraming beses na rin akong umuuwing umiiyak mag-isa. How can I be wrong if it just felt so right? Sa apat na taon ko sa hayskul, apat na taon din pala akong umaasa sa wala. Naturingan pa naman akong Batch Valedictorian pero mukang isa lang ako sa mga patunay sa kasabihang “ang taong matalino, bobo pagdating sa pag-ibig”. Pero siyempre, di ko na hahayaang mangyari pa ulit iyon. Nadala na ako. Di na ako naniniwala sa M.U na iyan. Kasi it’s either it won’t work out in the end, or you will just choke each other’s privacy or you will end up saying “Hay! Akala ko Mutual Understanding yun pala hindi.”flower of love - purple

Dahil ang totoo ikaw lang ang Mag-isang Umiibig. Kahit gusto mo siyang damayin sa kalokohan mo, di mo magawa.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Ang puso di naman kasi parang utak na natuturuan kung sinu-sino ang dapat mahalin.

 

O ha! Ang karanasang ito ay para sa mga katulad kong nabiktima ng walang kamalay-malay. Di naman masama ang magkagusto, ang masama lang eh iyong ini-edit mo na ang love story niyo kahit wala pa man ding nangyayaring totoo. Masarap mag-imagine, pero mas masarap balikan ang mga happy moments niyo kung ito ay totoo.

Behind the Scene

 Behind the Scene

Do you believe that the best things in life are those which the camera can never capture?

Well, I do.

We all have those perfect moments in life in which we can utter the words “This is the best!”. It is very natural party on beachfor us to create and enjoy fun and exciting moments. And in this modern times, we often encapsulate those memories through pictures or the ever famous ‘selfies’and ‘groufies’. Yes, as they say pictures can tell a thousand words however it can never capture the very meat of that moment. Through pictures, we tend to hold on to the best things without knowing that the best ones in life are also best left as a memory drawn with the wind.

Just like Jane, a 17-year old girl who tried to express her best moment in life through a picture. “We had a class presentation of telling a story out of an image. I chose the one in which I smiled, giggled and laughed a lot. I thought they will also feel the same, however they only flashed a slight smile trying to show their empathy and involvement where in fact they were all busy with their own business.” There she realized that the best things in life can never be completely portrayed and relayed on a flat 2D surface.

Similar to her story, is the experience of  ‘Tatang’ who tried to recall all his ‘best things in life’ moments through a collection of old pictures stored in his wooden ‘ataul’ (box). “Isang araw, nalungkot ako kaya naisipan ko na maglakbay na lang sa mga alaala gamit ang mga larawang itinago ko. Akala ko maiiyak ako sa sobrang tuwa at galak ngunit halos di ko na pala matandaan ang ilan dala na rin siguro ng katandaan.” Perhaps, he only remembered how he felt when he experienced the best moments of his life as he scanned and walked in the past through those pictures.iStock_000008776871_Medium

I too have my own share of ‘best things in life’. One of it was when I found my way back to Christ, giving me my real identity back which was once stolen from me. As a teenager, I had my Y.O.L.O (You Only Live Once) moments with me but those can never match up to the tender happiness I felt during that 3-day encounter with God. I was graciously and miraculously reborn in faith and spirit, with that I had my own testimony of life at its best. Unlike my other fun experiences, I didn’t have any picture of that 3-day journey but up until now the unexplainable feeling of freedom, love and joy are still alive and fresh in my soul. I believe I tried to take a picture of it but I chose not to save it realizing that it was just more than a wonderful  and memorable picture. It was a life changing event which shouldn’t be boxed only by the blinding flashes of the camera but instead its worthy to remain alive in my own collection of memories.meadow

Indeed, life is a journey bunched with surprises and unexpected moments. Just like when your crush crosses your way and says ‘hello’ to you, I can tell you can do nothing but freeze for a moment and stare savoring every second of it. For you, it might be one of the ‘best things in life’ however because of that rising mixed-up emotions of happiness and excitement you didn’t have enough reaction time to capture it with a camera. Nevertheless, best experiences and things in life are mostly those of behind the scenes and they are best captured by our own system of memory and stories to share.

Do you believe that the best things in life are those which the camera can never capture?

Well, I do.
