Hmmm, I just got a new job. That is to find Susie’s soulmate. Can I accomplish this task with flying colors. Haha. Let’s wait and see.
By the way, Susie is a my Chinese friend who helps me in my Chinese speeches. I met her through Mr. Noel Catalan when they visited us in Beijing, China during the Gokongwei Brothers Foundation- China Scholarship Program. She’s been working in the Philippines for evelen years….
If you also want to be friends with her, please contact me. 😉
I initially planned to travel alone to spend my Good Friday in Legazpi City. I’ve never seen Mayon upclose even though I used to live in the same region. So I decided to have a stopover in the city.
Few days before I left Manila, Megan told me that she’s also going to Legazpi on the same date. Hence, I was so happy!!!
We roamed around the city together with other Chinese friends and I was truly glad about it!!!
Megan is my Chinese friend whom I met in China almost six years ago. She’s been working here in the Philippines for quite some time.
Thanks Megan! Truly glad to spend this day with you and the rest of the group. 🙂
Will be on my way to Catanduanes tomorrow to celebrate our high school reunion. Can’t wait! 😉
Of the last sayings of Christ on the cross, none is more important or more poignant than His very last utterance, “It is finished.” Found only in the Gospel of John, the Greek word translated “it is finished” is tetelestai, an accounting term that means “paid in full.” When Jesus uttered those words, He was declaring the debt owed to His Father was wiped away completely and forever. Not that Jesus wiped away any debt that He owed to the Father; rather, Jesus eliminated the debt owed by mankind—the debt of sin.
Just prior to His arrest by the Romans, Jesus prayed His last public prayer, asking the Father to glorify Him, just as Jesus had glorified the Father on earth, having “finished the work you have given me to do” (John 17:4). The work Jesus was sent to do was to “seek and save that which is lost” (Luke 19:10), to provide atonement for the sins of all who would ever believe in Him (Romans 3:23-25), and to reconcile sinful men to a holy God. “All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:18-19). None other but God in the flesh could accomplish such a task.
Also completed was the fulfillment of all Old Testament prophecies, symbols, and foreshadowings of the coming Messiah. From Genesis to Malachi, there are over 300 specific prophecies detailing the coming of the Anointed One, all fulfilled by Jesus. From the “seed” who would crush the serpent’s head (Genesis 3:15), to the Suffering Servant of Isaiah 53, to the prediction of the “messenger” of the Lord (John the Baptist) who would “prepare the way” for the Messiah, all prophecies of Jesus’ life, ministry, and death were fulfilled and finished at the cross.
Although the redemption of mankind is the most important finished task, many other things were finished at the cross. The sufferings Jesus endured while on the earth, and especially in His last hours, were at last over. God’s will for Jesus was accomplished in His perfect obedience to the Father (John 5:30; 6:38). Most importantly, the power of sin and Satan were finished. No longer would mankind have to suffer the “flaming arrows of the evil one” (Ephesians 6:16). By raising the “shield of faith” in the One who completed the work of redemption and salvation, we can, by faith, live as new creations in Christ. Jesus’ finished work on the cross was the beginning of new life for all who were once “dead in trespasses and sins” but who are now made “alive with Christ” (Ephesians 2:1, 5).
Big Bull vs. Big Carabao 😀
The end of March brought on the last trading of the quarter, with the S&P Index hitting new all-time closing highs in what felt like a very choppy couple of weeks. While we still have not raised our official 14,590 price target for the Dow Jones Industrial Average as the peak for 2013, we will be adjusting that number by the end of the first week of April. 24/7 Wall St. has laid a blueprint and road map for what you should watch for in the month of April as the bull market continues despite the woes in Europe.
We evaluated many key market and economic issues for this April bull market road map. Companies raising dividends, the lists of stocks to buy and stocks to sell, the top merger trends, activist investors, gold and oil, tax issues, quantitative easing, the best bank stocks to buy, the earnings season on the way and many…

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has approved a plan submitted by The Nasdaq OMX Group Inc. (NASDAQ: NDAQ) that provides up to $62 million in compensation for investors who lost money during the debacle that was the Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) initial public offering (IPO). Nasdaq itself sought the SEC’s permission to reimburse investors by adding a subsection to its rule limiting claims payments to $500,000 in any given month.
The rule change specifically addresses the Facebook IPO. Claims will be paid on four categories of realized or unrealized direct trading losses. Claimants have seven days from SEC’s approval to file written claims for compensation. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) will evaluate and process the claims.
According to the SEC, payments will be made in two tranches:
