Giving Thanks this Thanksgiving and Big day!

Jebee Kenji Solis "I am so grateful for the gift of life, of love, for simple knowledge and gained wisdom, for light, for hope, and for the gift of being forgiven when we fail and commit mistakes. I am thankful for my family, my one true love."


I've been to a lot before finally standing on my own feet, and continue in my journey to life. I've lost a mom, but gained a lot through the years. I've been belittled, criticized, hurt, and turned down, but never been discouraged with life. I am always optimistic and full of hope, that one day I can be able to realize my dreams and good desires for me, and my family. I am honestly grateful for the gift to live in this world, and to know and befriend many great people. I am grateful for the kind of life I am living, and I hope it will always be beautiful, simple, and yet meaningful.


I am grateful for the opportunity to love and be loved. I’ve been hurt and rejected a lot of times, but they are a handful compared to the love I felt and develop, and the love I built with many people, for life and for friendship. I am more than ever grateful for the love to and of the woman I married, and for the daughter that we procreate. Love, like life is always beautiful.


I am grateful for the gift of simple knowledge. I always believe that honor, real honor are not only gained in school or academic achievement or in the workplace, but in every small and simple, and big decisions we are making each and every day. Honor is not confined in the classroom or office alone, but it is develop and gained in the process through the way we conduct our lives. Knowledge is best gained in reading, and inter-acting, the wisdom follow when we apply the things we’ve learned. Experience is the best teacher indeed when we apply what we read, and what we think is the finest and become a better person when we fail or excel in what we experimented.


Are we not lost? Do we not at all need a light as we journey in this confusing, dark and troubled world? Depending in our belief and faith, we all need someone greater than we are, because our tasks are enormous, and our path is darkened. We need someone who can enlighten us. I don’t know other light that is continually shining and bright than the light of the world – our God.


We all have been downed and disappointed, but we have not yet abandoned hope. We can’t afford to. Hope is almost a part of life. It is what keeps us going, it is what inspires us to press on and to carry on despite the many discouraging moment we have had. Life must be full of hope in order for us to survive, be happy and gain success.


Of all the things I am grateful with, I am more grateful with this gift. I am a man, and I fail, in fact, I failed many times. I am human, and I commit mistakes, oh lots of them! But the failings and mistakes do not in any way weaken my desire to be better. In every small and not-so small flaw I am asking an honest forgiveness and will do something to amend and correct them. If I can’t find anyways to do that, I turn to God and ask if He can take care of the rest. Through this process we feel better about ourselves, and we put on a smile again in our face and move on in life.


I am thankful for my wife, the love of my life, for all time and all eternity.
I am grateful for my daughter, our inspiration and source of happiness
I am grateful for my ever supportive siblings and kin.
I am grateful for my family online the people behind Kablogs and PEBA

A Letter to all PEBA Nominees

Dear Nominees.

We couldn't be any prouder.  Out of the 83 nominated blogs, we have
narrowed the list to 47 finalists, all equally deserving of the PEBA
2010 Blog Awards.

This is even more amazing:  The countries that the finalists work in
(or live in) is as diverse as their professions:  A surveyor from Saudi Arabia, a researcher from Bangkok Thailand, a caregiver from Taiwan, a missionary from the Philippines, a computer programmer from Jeddah KSA, an accountant from Dubai, UAE, a researcher from the US, and a physician from Malaysia. I just mentioned a few, there are just too many of you.

Truth be told, nowhere will you find such diverse talent of OFW and
Pinoy expat bloggers than here.  So congratulations everybody!

Even our photo contests are receiving a warm reception.  To date, we
have received 40 photos from eight countries!  Well done!  By end of
November, we are eyeing up to 100 photo entries.  These photographs
will be on exhibit at the venue during the award's night. Another
exhibition of winning photographs is being eyed next year.

In the coming days up to the award's night, all finalists will be
featured in posts and videos for the whole blogging world to see.  We
wish for everyone to know about your extraordinary courage in
responding to our call and in sharing with us your own stories, your
thoughts, your dreams.  You all are truly inspirations to us.

We come free, but we don't come cheap

PEBA is ran by volunteers, OFWs and bloggers worldwide.  Note that not a single cent is being paid to us, and most of the time, we even use
our own money (our time and talent for PEBA is always free!). And yet
PEBA is getting better and bigger. That's because of people like you.
From the pool of nominees, we get some of our best and brightest
volunteers who, like us, are motivated too by the desire to reach out,
to share, to help.

This made PEBA unique.

We are composed of Pinoy expat and OFW bloggers from various parts of the world -- sharing with one another whatever we can give to PEBA and its cause.

We also have a dream:  that all of us will have a great EB soon!  That
all the people who took part in PEBA -- the nominees, winners,
directorate, and volunteers -- will one day meet up for a grand EB.
Is it a date this December 16?

We don't know how long PEBA will last.  Five years?  10?  We don't
know. Honestly, we don't know.  But one thing we're sure is that it's
getting bigger and better every year.  And to whom do we owe this?
You, our current nominees.  And also our previous nominees and winners and supporters around the world.  So before we get welled up in tears, please accept my profound gratitude to all of you.  Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.

Let's get back to serious issues.  Here are some points that you may
want to know en route to our award's night.

When will the voting close?  December 9, 2010.  5:00am, Philippine time.

How do we guard the votes?  Oh, we know those who used Host Shield or IP changer software so they can multiple vote for their entries.
Sorry, but your 'dagdag' votes are uncounted.

When will the deadline be for photo entries?  December 1, 2010.
5:00am, Philippine time.

When will the awarding ceremony be?  December 16, 2010.  At Teatrino

Promenade, Greenhills, San Juan, Metro Manila.
Who will be our contacts?  Yanah and Arvin, our Philippine-based
volunteers will assist you.  Please contact them at

I heard there are freebies for us?  You're right.  On December 16, all
nominees will receive gift packages from PEBA.

I heard you're accepting donations for PEBA BELIEVE Scholarship for
Filipino kids?  Madam Auring, ikaw ba yan?  Yes, we are.  And if your
heart prompts you to give (it's almost Christmas time, folks, and
Christmas is the time for...lechon kawali!...oooppss...what I mean is
giving), we would appreciate if you can send it to the account below:

*Pinoy Expats/OFW Blog Awards, Inc.*

*Bank Name: Bank of the Philippine Islands*
*Peso Savings Account No.: 9063-0580-06*
*Branch Code: BOPIPHMM*

*Email: for details *

Where can I send the donation?  You can use any of the remittance
centers in your locality who have affiliates with Western Union,
Cebuana, Lhuiller, etc.  I believe a bank-to-bank deposit is also

Oh, yes.  I think the minimum that you can remit is in the equivalent
currency of PHP500.  All proceeds will go to education of Pinoy
children via BELIEVE Foundation.  We are eyeing at inviting one or two
(or maybe all) of the scholars to grace us during the award's night.

Thank you, friends!  If you have other questions in mind, please don't
hesitate to contact me.
