Graduation Month

Upon checking my fb news feed about 15min. ago, I saw a lot of graduation pictures and that reminds me of my brother's graduation last November, 2011 which I attended together with my cousin. I know it's sooo last year but since it's the time of commencement exercises might as well give my fingers a little exercise to do and share this with you.:=)

Being able to finished school was really somethin'.. especially if you had a lot of awesome and fun times all throughout the years with the "kids" you literally grew up with.. It's kinda sad. But the thought of not waking early for the next day and thinking you don't need to do anythin' to save your ass from the teachers makes you wanna JUMP FOR JOY! ooooh I can still feel the excitement, lols!

Not until when the realization sinks in, that bittersweet taste of success you'll get when the heat of the celebration melts down. You've graduated only to find out that it's only the beginning of it all. To face the reality, to control your own life! It's the cross-roads where you will decide which way to go and how you do it. The discretion is all in your hands now. It's not a responsibility after all, in fact it's a gift for you and for your parents. So to all the graduates out there, cheers!  Nurture that gift!

And to you my dear bro, you know how much Ate's very proud of you. You go ahead and keep on shining! Make all your dreams a reality! Do it in Jesus' name, Amen! Congratulations once again and I love you!


Unang Patak

Sobrang maalinsangan ang panahon kaninang tanghalian kaya naman dali-dali kong inihanda ang pampaligo ni H pagkababa namin mula sa silid-tulugan. Subalit dala na rin siguro ng init ng panahon, mainit din pati ang ulo nya ~ galit, nagwawala, ayaw kumilos at sa unang pagkakataon hindi atat maligo. Mga mag-iisang oras din kami nagpilitan, naglambingan, nag-inisan at nag-utuan para lang mapaamo siyang pumunta ng kusina pero matigas pa din. Mas lalo lang siyang nabwisit kasabay nang pag halik ng ulan sa nangangalit na tuyot na lupa. Badtrip! Mahalumigmig! Mabuti na lang at lumakas ng konte ang pagbuhos nito at ganun din ang paglakas ng sigaw ng aking mahal na prinsesa. Kaya naman ang kanyang ama ay tuluyan ng sumaklolo, at ayun naligo silang dalawa sa ambon (e mahina lang e kaya di un ulan) :)) Yan ang istorya ng unang pagdampi ng patak ng ulan sa balat ng aking mahal na bulilit. 
Bakas pa sa larawang ito ang pagka-inis ng aming prinsesa pero ang totoo nagenjoy talaga siya di lang halata, *wag ka mag-alala anak sa tag-ulan araw-arawin natin maligo sa ulanan..

***Buti na lang at lumamig din at nakatulog siya, nagkaroon tuloy ako ng  oras para magawa ito.


hailey techie

How time really flies! I can't believe that I already have a techie daughter. She turned three last January and her computer skills are really emerging! Last year I was so impressed when she learned how to use the space bar to replay the youtube videos she's watching, followed that  by the use of track pad in mommy's phone to choose the video she wanna watch (take note she learned/discovered all of that by herself) and early this year she learned to navigate the mouse when she's youtube-ing and gradually got the hang of it, so now she can play on-line.

She already know how to spell her name "hailey" both in oral and typing (using the keyboard) as well as the words "mommy" and "daddy", and knows how to delete it as well using the backspace.  Plus we gained additional words that she can actually read, like before it was only up to 15 words but now she can read probably up to 20 words.

Some of the unforgettable conversations we had with H:

Last year (Nov.2011) in Manila: 2yrs.and 10mos.
Hailey: Come on Mommy Star let's go outside!
MommyStar: No let's just stay here it's raining.
Hailey: Uhmmm..(Puts her finger in her temple, acts like she's thinking) Aha! (With her surprise face with wide open eyes and mouth, and her pointer in an upward position) I have an idea!
Mommy Star: What's your idea?
Hailey: Umbrella!

This year (Feb.2012) back in the province: Just turned 3y.o. last Jan.
Hailey: Papa Noynoy let's go to Gaisano (Mall)!
Papa Noy: Oh it's closed Hail.
Hailey: I have an idea! A key! A key!
Mom: But we don't have a key sweetheart..
Hailey: Don't worry Mom, I help you find a key..

Don't you think I have the bragging rights to be the PROUD-est Mom on earth? :))
Truly my sweet-est thing!


When you have a place to go at the end of the day ~ that is HOME.

When you have people to love ~ that is FAMILY.

When you have someone whom you can be yourself and accepts and cares for you in any circumstances ~ that is a FRIEND.

When you have all of them ~ that is a BLESSING. :D

That is one of the many wonderful text messages sent to me by my long lost bf  "Kristine" when they got back to Bohol after spending some fun times with me here in her hometown Antique last February. We've been friends since 1997 and became one of the closest among others in our class. We both transferred to a different schools during '98 I was the first one, but continued our friendship thru letters (I still have 'em) and '99 she transferred and never to hear anything from each other since then. So roughly for 13 years we've never seen and heard from each other again, not until last month we had this chance of celebrating the good times we've had from the past and given the chance of making another memorable one. What a small world, isn't it? For so many places in the world she happened to be my husband's kababayan. I think I already mentioned her last year in one of my posts when we found each others' account in fb, so that's where we got updated with each others' lives. 
Here we are:
With our kids.=))
 Sisters by heart! 
Despite the distance and the many years we've lost along the way, I thank God for bringing me friends as precious as this one. I love her and forever we'll be friends. Sis, alamoyan! Andito ka o' sa puso ko! Thank you! Mwah! <3 I hope to be with her again, sana this summer. =))
