Happy! Everybody should be happy! (Dancing…dancing…dancing)

I have an additional half day for this weekend because I only have to report to work this morning. Our office declared Friday afternoon as special holiday. Thanks boss!

But what are my plans for the weekend? It will be an ordinary weekend for me actually. I will only stay at home with my husband and our baby. Do the usual routine – general cleaning, laundry and bonding time.

Somebody asked me few days ago, “are you going home to the province?” I said, “NO. Hayaan ko nalang muna na sila (yong mga kaluluwa ng aking yumaong mga mahal sa buhay) ang dumalaw sa amin.”NGEK! I am just kidding. I’m afraid with the ghost. Promise!

Going home to the province is not on our list this time. It is much harder this time to travel by land for more than twelve (12) hours because we now have our baby and we still don’t have our own car. And another thing is, we really have to tighten our budget.

You guys, what are your plans for this weekend? Are you going to visit your loveones in the cemetery? Good for you. Always take an extra care though.

Have a happy and safe weekend to all!


random thoughts


Yesterday was so busy day. I got met some deadlines. I got finalized some schedules/arrangements for the upcoming activities.

At the end of the day, I suffered from mild migraine. I just got lucky that water therapy helped to ease the pain.


I have to come up with some good article/write-up. Few days ago, I signed up for a writing exercise. I still have enough time though to think and write about it. But hey, I got no inspirations and motivation to finish or even start writing about the topic. I am afraid I was not able to meet my deadline.

I really need some motivations and inspirations to be able to come up with some good writing here. I need some help or some quiet moments alone so that only happy thoughts will come out from this "antique" brain of mine. LOL.


I have to ask forgiveness for my shortcomings and for any unnecessary acts that I have done from some other people out there:

♣ To the hotel personnel, who is in-charge in banquet sales and marketing. For I had asked a lot of quotations from them yet I was not able to close a deal. Guys, I do not have the power to decide. I can only recommend but my boss is the approving officer. So, please bear with me. I hope that you will not put my name in a blacklist. And you still give me another chance next time.

♣ To the person in-charge in arranging foreign travel from a certain government agency. For I call on you so often. I know I got so “makulit” but please bear with me. I really have to follow my boss instructions/command.

♣ To my co-worker, who always or observe me so often that I was just quiet in my little own corner. Guys do respect me please. When you see me been so quiet here, probably I am not feeling well or just simple I am feeling so mad that I decided to remain quiet so that I can’t hurt anyone further.

♣ To some other persons that you think I owe you some apology. Guys, I am sorry and please forgive me.

I know, I am not perfect but I am trying my best to be nice to all of you.


On the other hand, there are people that also ruin my day.

♣ People who think they are really superior.
♣ People who don’t mind even they already hurt other people.
♣ People who deserve to be ignore.
♣ People who belittle other people.
♣ People who laugh at other people’s fault.
♣ People who just work so slow.
♣ People who keep on asking same question everyday.
♣ People who keep an eye to their wife instead of doing their duty/job.
♣ People who can’t decide or work on their own
♣ People who flirt to a married people.
♣ People who always complain.
♣ And many others.

You guys, GO! But please don’t multiply. Harharhar.


In the end, I know I still have to thank GOD for all the good things that He showered upon me.
♣ For my life.
♣ For the loving and caring family.
♣ For the patience.
♣ For the strength.
♣ For all my friends who always show some love and care to me.
♣ For the blogging friends who keep on giving me hope and inspiration.
♣ And for more other blessings to come.

the Avalon.ph and Wifely Steps Moleskine Giveaway

{photo via}
I love collecting notebooks. And my ultimate dream is to have my very own moleskine notebook.

Today, Toni of wifelysteps just teamed up with Avalon.ph for a moleskine giveaway.

I want to join the contest and try my luck. Who knows, it may be my chance to have my very own moleskine.

For the mechanics, Toni just asked this question:

What would you write in your moleskine?

If given the chance to own a moleskine notebook, I would write my thoughts on it-- my thoughts about life, my thoughts about love, my thoughts about the people and things around me. I would write all my ideas. I would write about my finances – the in and out of my earned money. I would write some poems on it. I would write about things that I don’t want other people to read. I would write about my feelings – happiness, anger, hate, frustrations, tears, and pain.

I would love to write on it anything and everything under the sun.

So, wish me luck guys!


I am the lucky one!

Last October 12, redlan over the redlan’s web of arts held a contest. He had three smart prepaid buddy cards on hand. And he decided to gave up angel locsin coz he loves piolo pascual more as he said. So what he did was, he let the readers guessed the last digit on card’s pin number.

I love joining the contest. Though I am no longer a smart user now, still I tried and guessed the numbers. . And I am so lucky because I was able to guess that last two digits which is 37.

Yepeeeyyyyyy…. For the first time ever in my blogging life history, I WON! I am so happy here.

But who was the end user of that smart load? Actually, I gave it to my older brother and he was so happy.

Redlan made me happy and I made my brother happy too.

Thank you so much redlan. Mabuhay ka!

Passage Genesis 9:12-16:

12And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:

13I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

14And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

15And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

16And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
God never promised
A life without pain,
Laughter without tears
Or sun without rain.

But He did promise
Strength for the day,
Comfort for the tears
And light for the way,
And for all who believe
In His Heaven above
He rewards their faith
In His everlasting love.
life is a constant change.
but never give up.
that is life.

happy weekend everyone!

ohhh, where am i?

Hey, guys. I am still here.

I am just hanging around here trying to pamper myself with that orange.

I just got no time and inspiration to update my blog for these past few days. But I still do blog hopping whenever I can.

Last month and this month was not so favorable with me and my family-- health wise.

Flu hit all of us in the house.

The most difficult time for me was when my baby was not feeling well.

I got sleepless nights because I need to attend to K.A.’s needs. Her fever was on and off for almost two weeks. Though her pediatrician prescribed her the proper medicines, letting her take them was another problem.

I was also not able to report to work regularly.

So, I got tons of pending work at my desk.

I tried my best to handle things one at a time.

At the moment, everything seems to be sailing smoothly.

Thank you very much for taking your time to read and write some comments on my post.

I do read them and really appreciate them.

You guys really made my day.

I hope to be back with another post soon.



quick note!

Hi guys!
How’s your day? Hope you guys are doing pretty well.

By the way, K.A. called me “aw-aw” the first time she saw me hanging at blue rose bag. Though I know that I am not a doggie or do not look like one too, I thought my name is “aw-aw”.

Blue rose asked me to take over her blog just for today because she is still busy and not feeling well too. She really needs to rush things because she needs to go home early. Baby K.A. still have a fever.

So, guys have a happy weekend.





Yes, finally! I am worry free! Thanks God.

I was so worried for the past few days. For K.A’s nanny got sick. Her cough and fever last for more than two weeks. On our first doctor’s visit she was given antibiotics but her cough doesn’t disappear so I brought her for the second time to have chest x-ray. I feel so relieved when the result came out and that everything seems to be ok. Laking luwag sa pakiramdam. I am so worried because resposibilidad ko sya sa magulang nya at isa pa baka mahawaan pa nya si baby.

Another thing was, my mother-in-law’s younger brother passed away last Saturday. Hubby and I were so afraid to say the bad news to her because she might collapse just like her siblings in the province upon hearing such news. So we decided to wait for my brother-in-law to come here in Manila and relay the news to my MIL. As of the moment, nasa Palawan na si hubby and BIL para makiramay at makipaglibing. Pero hindi nakasama si MIL dahil hindi na daw nya kaya bumyahe via plane.

On a happy side… hubby surprised me with this:

and this one for K.A.:

Having no special occasion or what, I asked him, “hubby what’s this for?” And he replied, “wala lang! I just want to give it to you because I love you.” Sweet ni hubby noh! Thank you so much bhe. I love you too.


bakit baliktad magbasa ng libro ang mga pilipino?

bakit nga ba?
hindi ko rin alam.
hindi ko pa sya nababasa eh.

siguro dahil:
a) hindi sya marunong magbasa at nagkukunwari lang na nagbabasa
b) inaantok sya at props nya lang ang libro
c) wala lang trip nya lang subukan ang magbasa ng pabaliktad
d) ewan... hindi ko talaga alam.
ikaw, ano sa tingin mo bakit nasabi nyang baliktad magbasa ng libro ang mga pilipino?
