Happy Father’s Day!
Dad. Papa. Itay. Daddy. There are many ways we call our fathers and it may not even be in this list because it is of a more personal nature for you! Truth of the matter is in today’s more complicated world, fathers play more diversified responsibilities more than ever where parental roles have gone topsy-turvy due to the phenomenon of overseas workers!
Historically, Sonora Smart Dodd is credited by Ripley’s Believe It or Not! as the originator of Father’s Day. She is often referred to as the “Mother of Father’s Day”. It started way back in June of 1910 when she heard of a Mother’s Day Sermon at a Central United Methodist Church in Spokane, Washington in1909. Having been raised alone in a farm by her father with 4 other brothers when her mother died when she was only 16 years old, Dodd proposed that fathers should receive equal recognition as well and from then on the celebration of Father’s Day held every 3rd Sunday of June which was proclaimed and signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1966 has grown to what it is today around the world 104 years later!
Surely, you would want to give something back to your dad, papa, itay or daddy as a token of your love and respect or even reverence. How about a gift, a simple lunch or dinner, or that much deserved rest or vacation even if it’s just for a day? It need not be expensive; after all, most say it’s the thought that counts!
At Goods.ph Father’s Day Sale, every minimum purchase of P3, 000.00 worth of items automatically entitles customer to P1, 000.00 worth of Gift Cheque. Promo runs until June 15, 2014.

Back To School
School’s back! Yes! It’s back to books, terror professors, boring subjects, cramming, written tests, oral recitations and school orgs and of course crushes! New expectations, classmates and professors add to the excitement and suspense of the incoming school year, not to mention and to be forgotten, new and diverse things to be learned and experienced! Remember, school lends a hand to hone your talents and refine the rough edges of your personality.
After sleepless nights and weeks of not knowing where to dig up funds for our ballooning tuition fees, our loving parents somehow came through and scrapped up some cash to enroll us to school. Now, it’s our token responsibility to at least try our very best to study and not put their sacrifices and dreams to see us graduate go to waste and down the drain.
Goods.ph offers various school supplies and gadgets delivered right at your doorsteps within 3-7 days by our trusted partners upon payment though accredited banking institutions, credit cards, SmartMoney, Globe G-Cash, PayPal or COD.

Imagine being in a beautiful place such as a flowing river or a park and seeing yourself enjoying a sumptuous meal outdoors with the whole family or with friends. You cook and bring along the kind of food and drinks you want to share with in the company of your closest family and friends.
In a picnic area near a river, family members can swim and frolic in its cool sparkling water or try fishing with a fishing rod or fishing net. While, in a beautiful park, you can enjoy the rolling view and the wide open spaces and breezy air and do selfies! Family picnics literally don’t have any rules as each and every one of the family can have their kind of fun without hurting one another of course! During family picnics you can hold games such as tag, touch ball, fly kites, play board games, kids can run around freely while grown-ups can lounge around and sleep on the grass on a warm cozy day! Picnics help keep families stay closer together as pleasant memories are reinforced in the experience!
Picnics promote a physical well being like no other in that it makes one feel hale and hearty inside. I still vividly recall the happy picnics with family and relatives in different rivers in my province, the happy bantering while swimming and enjoying the mouth-watering food and cold drinks. It is part of some of my childhood’s sweetest memories during the summer season.

Holy Week has always been a much awaited event in the Philippine catholic calendar. The observance of Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent. It starts with 40 days of fasting where we imitate Jesus Christ’s fasting in the desert for 40 days while being tempted by Satan. Lent prepares Catholics through penance, reflection and fasting towards Christ’s Resurrection on Easter Sunday. While some go to the beaches of Boracay, Palawan, Batangas, Mindoro or La Union or to cool Baguio and Tagaytay or to faraway places to observe Holy Week in a festive manner, most go to churches to hold vigils and participate in the Visita Iglesia where people go to 7 different churches and pray and reflect on the Stations of the Cross reliving the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Palm Sunday commemorates Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem as He was welcomed by a huge crowd by waving and laying down palm leaves before Him in praise. This starts the Holy Week celebration; today we observe this by having coconut palms blessed by the priest during Palm Sunday mass. During Holy Monday gospel readings, Jesus is shown cleansing the temple of its shameful vendor practices saying it has no place in the house of His Father and cursed the crowd of their wrong beliefs. Holy Tuesday was when Jesus was questioned by the Pharisees regarding what he did in the temple and his Divinity and was the time where He preached the parables of the vineyard and the wedding banquet that depicts Him as the bridegroom. Holy Wednesday was when Judas Iscariot plotted to hand over Jesus to the Romans for thirty pieces of silver and that how he was to betray him with a kiss. It was also during this time that Mary, the sister of Lazarus whom Jesus raised from the dead pours costly perfumed oil on Jesus’ feet and wipes it with her own hair in gratitude. Holy Thursday was the day when Christ’s ‘Last Supper’ was shared with his apostles; it was basically the first mass and establishment of the Holy Eucharist by Jesus Christ. Ordering the disciples who would be the first priests to “Do this in memory of Me” The Blessed Sacrament where the body and blood of Christ was instituted. It is during Holy Thursday that ‘The Agony in the Garden’ also transpired and as he was praying he was betrayed and arrested and brought to the house of the High Priest. Good Friday sees Jesus Christ before Pontius Pilate and Herod and sent back to Pontius Pilate again, who would condemn Christ to be scourged, paraded through the streets of Jerusalem carrying His cross and eventually crucified and finally dying at the cross at Mt. Calvary. Black Saturday sees Jesus’ body laying in the tomb but His soul among the dead. The Sabbath is a day of rest for the Jews and it is believed that this is what Christ did in death on Holy Saturday. Easter Sunday is the resurrection of Jesus Christ where He is raised from the dead and seated at the right hand of God the Father in all triumph! He has fulfilled His Father’s wishes and delivered and saved His beloved people from sin.
No matter how one celebrates Holy Week is one’s own choice! God has given you the free will to do what is right and what is wrong. Go to church, read the bible, participate in the Visita Iglesia, pray or go to the beaches or tourist spots if you want. Just remember what Jesus Christ did and offered for your sins and salvation!
