Starbucks Partner Marco Carlo Calibara: What He Says About The Issue 'May Bubwit Sa Starbucks Coffee Ko' Of A Certain 'Jessica'

Starbucks is love. Everyone likes Starbucks. SB has a good image, a nice reputation ... but now faces health and sanitation issues... allegations that still need to be proven and verified.

While we all wait for the "findings" and perhaps the TRUTH... let us take it from this man's point of view. 

Marco Carlo Calibara said he was a Starbucks partner for more than 3 years and so many netizens believe that what he shared on his Facebook account indeed makes sense -- it's now trending.

ABS-CBN news on the latest Coffee Fiasco!


Issues have been raised. Stories have been told. Inspection has been done. So what's next?

Be the judge: What do you think about this "May Bubwit Sa Starbucks Coffee Ko" issue? 

Would you still dare to go to Starbucks and have some gulps of your fave frappe and coffee? 

Well, we do! Starbucks is Starbucks -- it's not the coffee, it's actually the 'memory' you make with families and friends whenever you're in!

A Farewell Message To A Very Dear Friend -- Mrs Jeanette Dela Cruz-Vasallo

Taken on the third day of her wake,
a lovely butterfly stays with us all throughout.
We love you, Ate Jeanette... a great friend who will be forever missed. 

A Prayer for a Friend... 

Almighty Father, eternal God, hear our prayers for Your daughter, Jeanette, whom You have called from this life. 

Give her eternal rest as You let her pass in safety through the gates of death, and live forever with all Your saints in the light You promised to Abraham and to all his descendants in faith. Guard her from all harm; and on that great day of resurrection and reward, raise her up with all Your saints. 

In Your mercy and love, forgive whatever sins she may have committed and grant her eternal life in Your kingdom. 

Lord Jesus, our Redeemer, You willingly gave up Yourself to death so that all people might be saved and pass from death into a new life. 

Listen to our prayers; look with love on Your people who mourn and pray for Jeanette. 

Lord Jesus, You alone are holy and compassionate; forgive her sins. By dying, You opened the gates of life for those who believe in You; may Your perpetual light shine upon her. 

Receive her soul and bestow her to God, the Most High. By Your glorious power, give her light, joy, and peace in heaven where You live forever and ever.  Amen. 

Gaya ng ating napag-usapan, gaya ng ipinangako ...

We will surely finish the story of your life -- very inspiring. 

We will write about it and let the whole world know how you, your life and your big heart have blessed and moved so many lives. 

Meet our "Principal in Heaven"

Congratulations, Ma'am Jeanette. 

You truly deserved this!  We are so proud of you! Yours is indeed a celebration of life.

I'd like to share her loving husband's message... 

The husband, Sir Benedict, finds strength and comfort from her "perfect" wife. He knows that even up to this time, she is still making ways for the entire family to feel how much she loves them all. Their faith in the Lord is admirable that their strength has always been so contagious, very inspiring.

To our dearest Ma'am/Ate Jeanette, we love you so. You're indeed a gift and a blessing to all of us.

Be our angel and send our kisses to our dear Lord. 

Til we meet again, my friend. I love you.

An Inspiring Story About Blended Families -- Ex-Husband To The New Hubby: I'm Supposed To Hate You Because You're Doing The Things That I Could NOT Do -- BUT I Love You For That, Man

OMG. This video made me cry. 

It's about how brave and humble an ex-husband and an ex-wife in dealing with the new ones, the stepparents of their only son... amazing and admirable. 

I've just become emotional -- not that I could relate -- because their words are so moving, so powerful that they'd make you grab tissues. Sniff.  :-)

P.S. What hit me? Oh, these lines...

A challenge to his manhood:

Jamey: "You're doing the things I couldn't do, and I love you for that, man!" 

... "You are a man of integrity, a man of skill. You are a beautiful husband."

... "I admire you and am grateful for you."

... "I know how powerful it is for a boy to see that his mother is loved because that's how he's going to treat his wife. And you're doing it for him, doing the things that I could not do. Am supposed not to love you for that but I do."

Disclaimer: This is never intended to promote divorce. The author/blogger always believes in a lasting marriage and a happy family. She hopes and prays that hers becomes the union that God wants their marriage to be. 

Cheers to a love of a lifetime!
