Everything seems portable now. Just like this printer I found out that is amazingly so small and can handle a small amount of load. It's some sort of an in-case-of-an-emergency printer. When you need to print something that you really need badly. It's so small it can fit in a handbag. Just hook it up to your computer/device via USB and get printing. XD


I am thankful for the blessings that God has endowed upon me these past few days. That includes those good people who shared their blessings to me. Last Monday, I was able to experience something that I've longed to happen. Something that I would want to happen again. For it makes my heart glad and it makes me realize good things. Not just for my own, but I offer this to the Lord.

I'm glad because my work mate invited me to an outreach program wherein we would go to a certain organization to visit and care for a group of people. I'm hoping that I can do this again and I pray that I will be proactive enough to be engaged in these kinds of activities.

We went to an organization called Missionaries of the Poor where it housed both special children and the elderly. It was actually my first time so I did not know what to expect. But it was quite a relief. It gave me a sense of fulfillment. Although, I made some mistakes at some point, I'm still glad because I was able to reach out and I was able to experience it. I'm not just thankful and glad about it, but I feel blessed to learn a lot from it. I learn a lot from really good Christians about God, about this life, about faith, about being instruments of the Lord. They shared a lot of things and just that enough makes my heart joyful. It was truly one of those moments where I really felt God's presence among us.

Well, I'm more fond of kids rather than the elderly so I may be a bit biased between our visits. I feel sorry for all those special children in that organization. When I saw them, I wondered what they are thinking and how do they go through life. It must have been hard for them to be retained there and not be able to do anything about their situations. It must be difficult for them to go on with their lives with the circumstances they are in. Before, I've always wondered what will happen to people like them when the time comes. Not just them actually, but people who have troubles with their psyche. I wonder if they will go to heaven or to hell since they are not in their healthy minds (That's why I've always been interested in the study of psychology because I believe it's harder and much needed to cure mental illnesses than physical ones.)

Then one work mate shared something that totally made sense which is not far from what I was speculating about. He told us how blessed we are to be able to go about our lives and have fun. He told us how blessed we are to have our own jobs, our dreams, and all the things that God has given ti us. But then, he also made us realize that those children there may be confined to that little space but they are happy in their own ways. They are not constricted or troubled with the problems of this world. And it's a positive that they will go to heaven with God since they haven't done anything wrong. While we, here on the outside world, are exposed to bad things and troubles and temptations. And we may or may not go to heaven. And he is right in saying that. He said a lot of things actually that made me realize and think. And it's no coincidence that I was brought into that place and experience those things. I am truly grateful because of what just happened.

I feel sorry for the elderly as well. I could see some old men there who were even younger than my father and yet they are there in that organization. I feel bad because they have been abandoned by their relatives, children, etc. It makes me realize how precious my parents are and that I should care for them during their old days. I should make them feel blessed and loved in the remaining time they have here on earth. I feel bad because I haven't really done anything to make them feel special. I'm such a pain to them. I just pray and hope that I will have enough courage and will to be able to care for them like never before.

I really admire those people who made that outreach happen and who are able to change lives in their own ways. I'm really thankful for it inspired me to become a better instrument for God's glory.


When I was a kid, I used to dream about having our own secret place in our house so that when there comes a time when a terrible war will broke out (I just hope this never happens), we would go to that secret place and hide there. It would be located somewhere underground and the door to it is just blended in the walls. It would have lots of canned goods and noodles and stuff to get us through. Hehe. I was pretty imaginative way back. And it so happens that my younger sister also dreamed about a similar secret place when she was a kid and I just knew it recently! Great minds think alike. Lol. Kidding. I guess we really are sisters. XD

So anyway, I just found out these 10 coolest doors and passageways and I was fascinated at what people can do. They may have their own reasons on why they made these, but the architecture, designs, and ideas behind them are so brilliant!

1. Home Theater Ticket Booth Hidden Door

If you are big fan of unique hidden doors and cool home theaters, the Home Theater Ticket Booth Door from Creative Building Resources (CBR) combines the best of both worlds. CBR's elaborate hidden door features a programmable, scrolling LED sign built into the top of the frame, while the interior of the hidden door functions like your traditional ticket booth, complete with recessed lighting. On the front of the ticket booth, a detailed wood inlay displays the high level of craftsmanship involved in constructing this hidden passageway, although we'd recommend ditching the frosted comedy and tragedy faces on the front ticket booth glass. For those who intend to staff the ticket booth, or at least fill it with a costume-draped dummy, the interior is accessed through a full sized cabinet door at the back. As this hidden door is a custom creation from CBR, we'd recommend ordering yours to match your own home theater decor.

2. Bookcase Hidden Door

The room showed above is one couples' unusually creative gift to their very excited teenage daughter. The bookcase, holding rows of books, a stuffed dachshund and a volleyball, silently swung outward, revealing a tiny, well-lighted room. Containing a desk, a chair and a laptop computer, it serves as her study area.

3. Staircase Hidden Door

When Louise Kircher, a retired teacher, and her husband, Dennis, a former accounting manager at Boeing, moved into their year-old, 4,300-square-foot contemporary home in Mesa, Ariz., the staircase in the master bedroom was something extra that came with the house. It rises to reveal a hidden room, where she and her husband store an antique bedroom set and a replica of a gilded mummy's coffin. A remote control amazingly lifts an entire staircase out of the way revealing the hidden passage.

4. Drawer Hidden Vault

To make sure your hidden door stays hidden, Creative Home Engineering offers a number of non-traditional hiding machines. Sure, they've got the standard revolving bookcase and sliding wall panels. But, the company also constructs hidden doors from grandfather clocks, fireplaces, paintings, stairwells, and other household fixtures. They also offer an option that allows your hidden door to double as a vault door, so your valuables stay double protected. Priced from $5-$250K, you'll probably want to make sure you've really got something big to protect to make the purchase worth your while. But, even if you don't, Creative Home Engineering claims that a quality hidden door can make a solid investment from an appreciation standpoint.

5. Mat Hidden Wine Cellar

Ever wanted a wine cellar but didn't have the space or money to build one? The Spiral Cellars design/build firm will dig a hole right in whatever room you want your cellar in and haul the dirt right out the front door. In the remaining void they infill a highly functionally and visually dazzling spiral-staircase wine cellar to fit all your favorite vintages and go with your favorite funky furniture designs. The cellars are kept at ideal temperatures, insulated on the sides and top. Cool air is piped in and warm air is piped out. Even when no air flow is needed for temperature purposes it is kept moving to keep the air fresh. Customers have had these installed in all kinds of ways, from flush- and hidden-door versions to entrances that intentionally boast their presence.

6. Narnia-like Wardrobe Hidden Playroom

This wardrobe is actually a secret entrance to a playroom. The owner of the house had the wardrobe and figured he might as well add a touch of magic to the house for a pretty amazing result. Sorry, lion and witch sold separately. Still, the stage is set much like many of us imagined when we read the children's classic as kids: a dark-painted room with wood-trimmed windows and antique wooden furniture, with a large dresser that looks strangely both foreboding and inviting.

9. Victorian Facade Hidden Garage

McMills Construction approached Beausoleil Architects for help installing a garage in the bottom floor of a property on Oak Street in San Francisco's Upper Haight district in order to maximize the tenant's rent. By hiding the space behind a retractable facade indistinguishable from the rest of the historic Victorian apartment house, they were able to avoid running afoul of the city planning department strict appearance codes.
