happy birthday to my husband

Each year your birthday reminds me
That I really want to say
I’m very glad I know you;
I think of you each day.

I hope you enjoy your birthday,
All the pleasures it has in store,
And because I appreciate you,
I hope you have many more!

on things i can't live without

Is there something I can’t really live without?

I can’t imagine myself waking up in the morning without my husband and my daughter at my side. And that is the thing that I am very much sure.

But on material thing, do I really have anything that I can’t live without? Oh, here’s my list:

First in the list is my wallet. I have this black wallet way back when I am still single. I think around year 2002 when I am still working in an NGO where my officemate offered me to buy it. I like this wallet and even my husband like it. It is a unisex wallet that I can put all my cards-ATM, IDs & others. I think I have to replace it because it started to worn out but I still did not find any one that I really like.

Second is my toothbrush. What a day without brushing my teeth? Whew!!!

Third is my rosary. I am not the type of person who religiously goes to church every Sunday. But I make it a habit of saying a little prayer everyday. Praying the rosary really give me relief especially when I am so down or when I am so scared.

Fourth is my mobile phone. Actually, I can live without it though it is really convenient to have it always on hand. It is very much useful especially when I am out of the house or office and really need to call anyone.

Fifth is my comb. It is so ashamed when everyday seems so windy day for me. LOL. That’s why I learn to bring my own comb every time I go out.

Sixth is my moisturizer & lotion. My husband criticizes me every time he notices my dry skin. He is my talking mirror. And I am so thankful for that.

Seventh are my drawer keys & house keys. Such keys are very important to me. I keep other important documents & some personal things in my office drawer that’s why I have to always have the keys with me. And of course the house keys, I hate to stand outside our house waiting for someone to open the door for me. I even remember a case where I have to wait for about six hours outside the house just because I don’t have my keys with me. I still don’t have my mobile phone then and the saddest thing was that I had no money with me that time to used payphone or go anywhere.

Eight & lastly is my pen. I need it especially if I have to jot down some important ideas that came across my mind and when I used to bet for lotto. LOL….

What are the things that you can't live without?

fairy day!

just found it through littlemsfirefly's blog today.

and to celebrate the fairy day i also love to post it here in my own blog.

to make more fun about it, i'd like to get 2 fairy names--one for my pen name & the other one for my real name.

for my pen name:

Your fairy is called Field Willowwitch
She is a caster of weird dreams.
She lives in fields where wild flowers and poppies grow.
She is only seen in the enchanted moment between sleep and waking.
She likes to wear red petals in her skirt.
She has delicate green coloured wings like a cicada

for my real name:

Your fairy is called Moth Demonwitch
She is a wicked and mischievous child.
She lives close to crystal caverns and stalagtite grottos.
She is only seen in the enchanted moment between sleep and waking.
She collects crystals to wear on her dresses. She has red wings like a brightly coloured butterfly.

what a weird feeling...

call me weird...

call me paranoid...

call me OA...

or call me anything but this is what i am feeling right now!

i miss him... i really miss my husband...

since i started working here at the office i used to see him just around the corner.

but eversince tuesday he is not around. he is in malacañang because his boss is having an official meeting there and will probably transfer & permanently work there in just few days or weeks. kakapanibago...kakalungkot...kakabato!

i know he will come home tonight or maybe early morning tomorrow. his work demanded most of his time unlike me who usually work 8am to 5pm five days a week.

thanks GOD, it's friday! tomorrow i wish he just stay at home with me and our baby.

quote for the day

"All men dream but not equally.
Those who dream by night
in the dusty recesses of their minds
wake in the day to find that it was vanity;
but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men,
for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible."
===T.E. Lawrence===


last week, medyo nakaramdam ako ng pangangati ng mata. and im so worried then kasi baka ako magka sore eyes. hindi pwede! hinding hindi dapat ako magkasore eyes kasi alam kong mahahawaan ko ang aking mga kasama sa bahay lalong lalo na ang aking baby. masyadong mahirap. kung ako lang kaya ko pang tiisin, anyway nagkasore eyes na ako when im still a kid kaya lang ayoko kasing makitang nahihirapan ang aking unica hija.

and last wednesday, aba masakit na ang aking mata at ayon may kuliti ako sa aking kanang mata! hay, mahirap pero mas mabuti na rin lang kasya sore eyes.

since then, naging tampulan tuloy ako ng biro sa office at pati na rin sa compound namin.

may mga nagsasabing kaya daw ako nagkakuliti dahil ako daw ay nanilip, meron din naman nagsabi na baka daw ako ay kumakanta sa banyo at meron din namang nagsabi na baka daw may nabunot akong pilik-mata.

napaisip tuloy ako! ano nga ba ang ibig sabihin ng kuliti at ano nga ba ang causes nito?

at syempre sa google ako magcoconsult. at ito ang aking konti naresearch about kuliti or sty.

according to mirriam-webster dictionary:

*****sty means an inflamed swelling of a sebaceous gland at the margin of an eyelid

and according to MotherNature.com:

A sty is a lot like a pimple. It's swollen, red and sometimes painful, and it gives you that same sinking feeling when you look in the mirror. The only thing that distinguishes it, really, is its particularly sensitive location. Sties are the result of an infected oil gland at the base of the eyelash. You can get more than one sty at a time or several in succession because the infection can spread from one hair follicle to others. Infection can occur, for example, when a contaminated mascara or makeup brush gives bacteria a free ride into the oily pores along the lashes. People who have super-oily skin or scalp may be sty-prone, just as they may be acne-prone, according to Kenneth Kauvar, M.D., assistant clinical professor of ophthalmology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver and author of Eyes Only.

Like pimples, sties are usually harmless and disappear on their own, says Dr. Kauvar.

Here's how you can help clear them up.

1. Drain, don't squeeze.

2. Take it to the doctor.

3. Keep a clean upper lid.

4. Take a break from eye makeup.

5. Ditch that dandruff.

inspirational quote for the day

Life is short,
art long,
opportunity fleeting,
experience treacherous,
judgment difficult.


meet my little princess

today i'd like you to meet my little princess K.A...

she is now one year, 2 months & 11 days to be exact...

this picture was taken only last week...

she is so friendly & talkative...

she loves to listen to the ringing tone that's why she is holding that phone and already knows how to scroll up & down...


dealing with stress

according to Lee Lacocca, "In times of great stress or adversity, it's always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive".

i am a little bit stress today because i still dont have my office computer. the I.T. personnel are nowhere to be found. how come that the 3 staff are not around and no one knows where they are!

my computer was pulled-out last wednesday last week. as of thursday the I.T. in-charge already bought new parts as a replacement to hard disk and power supply. reformating will only takes 1 hour to be done. but 3 working days had passed and still i dont have it.

i can borrow/use other computer here at the office (like what i am doing right now) but i need my files so i can go on with my other work.

and to ease the stress that i have today, i just surf the net...blog hopping, check my email & friendster account. bought some food to eat like chocolates & nuts.

aside from that, other outlet that works for me when i am so stress are: sleeping, listening to music especially those disco type music, drinking coffee and the most effective one is playing with my little princess K.A.. seeing her smile plus a kiss from her makes me forget those bad/stressful things.

how about you guys, how do you deal with your stress?


friday the 13th

Is it true that Friday the 13th is unlucky day?

According to http://www.kidsturncentral.com/holidays/friday13.htm:"The
modern reason for this is said to come from Friday October the 13th, 1307.
On this date, the Pope of the church in Rome in conjunction with the King of
France, carried out a secret death warrant Against "the Knights Templar".
The Templars were terminated as heretics, never again to hold the power that
they had held for so long. There Grand Master, Jacques DeMolay, was arrested
and before he was killed, was tortured and crucified. "

I was born on the 13th, that means that there were times that my birthday falls on Friday.

But i was not scared about it anyway.

I have strong faith in God. I know everything happens for a reason.

So far (and hopefully will not happen), i did not encounter any bad luck on the said date and day.

For today, i am still lucky (if i may say it) just because:

1. i have a happy family
2. i got my pay for the period june 1-15

3. i have lots of food to eat at the office and at home

4. i have no deadlines for today

And the only thing that i did not get today is my computer because the I.T. in charge was absent. But i did not considered it as unlucky thing because i can have it by next week. Besides, as i said earlier i have nothing to rush for the deadline today.

so, just take care everyone.

Happy weekend!

so happy today


my pretty baby K.A. kissed me a lot as she woke up this early morning

* my husband put on my wrist watch, my office ID and kissed me before I got down the car

my boss immediately approved my request to purchase new hard disk and power supply for my office computer which gave up yesterday

* our office I.T. personnel told me that all my files was retrieved (thanks GOD! Cheers!)

and lastly, I.T. is now working on my computer and told me that I can have it hopefully by tomorrow morning.

Thanks a lot guys! You made my day!

handog ko sa aking asawa at ama

bilang pagpupugay sa nalalapit na araw ng mga ama nais ko sanang handugan ng tula ang aking mahal na asawa at ang aking sariling ama.

pangit man ang pagkakagawa ko subalit ito'y taos naman sa aking puso.

nauna ko na itong nailathala sa aking friendster blog pero dahil sa ito na ngayon ang aking bagong tahanan kaya nais ko rin ulit ilathala dito.

para sa aking asawa:

Ramdam kung ako’y napakaswerte sayo;
Pagkat ang kabaitan mo ay taos sa puso;
Mula ng dumating ka dito sa buhay ko;
Tunay na kaligayahan ay naramdaman ko.

Oo nga’t hindi tayo palaging masaya,
Subalit ito’y bahagi lamang ng buhay may asawa;
Upang higit na tumibay ang ating pagsasama;
At higit na mapatingkad ang pagmamahal sa isa’t isa.

Nananalangin ako sa Poon Nating Maykapal;
Na ating pagsasama sana ay panghabambuhay;
At patuloy na manaig sa puso ang pagmamahal;
Kahit na unos pa ang dumating sa ating buhay.

Alam kung lahat ay kakayanin nating lagpasan;
Anumang pagsubok ang sa atin ay magdaan;
Pagkat tunay at wagas ang ating pagmamahalan;
At matibay na pananalig sa Diyos ang ating sandigan.

Lahat ng nais mo’y para sa king kabutihan;
Ako’y iyong binabantayan at inaalagaan;
Iyong isinasantabi ang sariling kagustuhan;
Pagkat “priority” mo ang aking kaligayahan.

Dahil sa’yo naging makulay ang aking mundo;
At nais ko itong ipagpasalamat sa’yo mahal ko;
Ikaw ang napakagandang regalong natanggap ko;
At hinding-hindi kita ipagpapalit kahit na kanino.

para sa aking sariling ama:

Ang tulang ito’y inihahandog ko sa’yo;
Pangit man ang pagkakagawa, sana’y pagpasensyahan mo;
Ito’y wagas at galing sa puso ko;
Bilang pasasalamat sa mga kabutihan mo.

Mula pagkabata, kami’y iyong inaruga;
Sa mga pangangailanga’y di nagpabaya;
Lahat ng makakaya’y iyong ginawa;
Sa aming kagustuhan, ika’y nagparaya.

Ang mga tungkulin ay iyong ginampanan;
Kami’y pinagtapos sa aming pag-aaral;
Napakaraming hirap man ang pinagdaanan;
Kami’y hinubog mo pa rin sa mabuting asal.

Paglalasing man ay iyong nakasanayan;
Ngunit ika’y amin naming naiintindahan;
Sama ng loob ay iyo lang binabawasan;
Sapagkat problema mo’y nagtatambakan.

Patawarin mo sana kami sa aming mga kasalanan;
Sa mga pagkukulang kami sana’y pagbigyan;
Ayaw rin naming makita kang nahihirapan;
Mahal na mahal ka namin kung alam mo lang.

Sa paglayo ni Inay, di natapos ang lahat;
Panahong inalay mo, sa amin ay sapat;
Huwaran ka sa kabaitan at sa lahat-lahat;
Kaya Itay, maraming marami pong salamat.

advance happy father's day sa inyong lahat!!!


miss ka na namin

lola! lola! lola!

halos araw-araw at gabi-gabing tinatawag ni K.A. ang kanyang lola.

alam kong sobrang namimiss na ni K.A. ang kanyang lola na simula dalawang (2) buwan palang sya ay ang kanyang lola na ang nagtiyagang mag alaga sa kanya. at batid ko kung gaano nya rin pinadama kay K.A. ang kanyang pagmamahal at pag-aaruga.

ang kanyang lola ay nagpasyang umalis sa amin nitong nakaraang May 15 at umuwi na sa aming probinsya. hindi naman nya diretsong sinabi sa amin na hindi na sya babalik subalit batid kong gusto rin naman nyang magpahinga. marahil sa edad nya ay medyo nahihirapan na rin syang magbuhat at maghabol-habol kay K.A. na sa kasalukuyan ay 1 taon at 2 buwang taong gulang na.

mabigat din sa loob ko na payagan syang umalis ng bahay ng mga panahon na yon subalit paano ko naman matitiis ang sarili kong tiyahin na hadlangan kung anuman ang kanyang naisin sa buhay. at isa pa nagiguilty din ako sa sarili ko na huwag syang payagan gayong alam ko naman na hindi ko sya mabibigyan ng isang disenteng pasahod.

mula ng umalis sya ay nakakailang beses na rin akong tumawag sa kapatid ko sa probinsya upang makibalita kung may pag-asa pa syang mapabalik sa amin. subalit hanggang sa kasalukuyan ay hindi pa rin daw nagsasabi. may plano ata kasi syang magnegosyo na lang sa probinsya.

sa tuwing naririnig kong tinatawag ni K.A. ang kanyang lola ay parang madudurog ang aking puso. kahit kasi ako ay namimiss ko rin sya. panatag din kasi ang aking isipan at kalooban kapag sa kanya ko iniiwanan si K.A. habang kami ni mister ay nasa trabaho. alam kong minahal din nya si K.A. na parang sarili nya na ring anak. at namimiss ko rin ang dating pag-aaruga nya sa baby ko at pati na rin sa aming mag-asawa. naaalala ko dati kapag umuuwi ako galing ng trabaho ay napakaayos ng aming bahay at pati si K.A. ay napakabango pa rin kahit hapon na. samantalang ngayon, sa bago nyang yaya eh parang kabaligtaran ata ang nangyayari. ang dating maayos na bahay ay aayusin ko palang sa aking pag-uwi at ang dating malinis at mabangong bata ay ngayo'y laging amoy pawis.

tiya, sobrang namimiss ka na namin. sana kung hindi ka man makabalik sa amin ay sana maisipan mo man lang kaming dalawin sa lalong madaling panahon. at muli mong marinig ang malulutong na pagtawag sayo ng baby nating maganda.
