>LAST DAY OF THE MONTH

>As we bid farewell to March, I am dreaming of saying goodbye as well to the losses and negativity that the month had for me and my family. I am hoping for better months to come. The Holy Week is coming and there’s so much to look forward to now that summer is officially in!Speaking […]

>BECAUSE EARTH HOUR WAS SUCCESSFUL

> Guys because Earth Hour was successful they decided to create another project called AIR HOUR. All you have to do this time is hold your breath for an hour (11:30 – 12:30pm April 1) Please this is to save the air for future generations! Spread the word!!

>ON PHARMACY

>My family and I live in Ortigas, a center for business in Pasig City. Everything’s nice and convenient at first glance. The church is near, malls are stone’s throw away, schools are accessible and so on. But then lately I realized that one of the most important establishment is missing, there’s no 24-hour pharmacy open […]

>A MOMMY MOMENT: HUGS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME

>I was sitting on P’s playmat watching t.v. while she was busy walking around the house making a big mess. She likes to do this as if imitating me when I do my usual house check. At some point I got so absorbed with the show that I was half listening to P’s blabbing and […]

>THIS ONE’S FOR US

>We are bloggers and keeping up a good website is one of our top concerns. And how can we keep a good one? We make sure our web host provider delivers well-that’s how. I’ve been talking about buying my own site for ages now and I’m still on the look out for the best provider […]

>SIX YEARS AND COUNTING

>Troy and I are together for six years now and I DREAM of another Sixty Years with him. It was not an easy road for us, we certainly had our fair share of pit bottom struggles but somehow we managed to pull it off together. We never broke up because we resolve everything before it […]

>SAYING I LOVE YOU TOO LATE

>My bestfriend lost his Dad a few years back. He was never close to his Dad eventhough he was all he got since his Mom left them. But when Tito died, Ryan (my bestfriend), felt guilty for not saying I LOVE YOU to his Dad (not once, not ever). I think the reason was that […]

>BABY’S TEETH AND THE DENTIST

>First of all did you know that too much Flouride is bad for babies? So make sure you use flouride free toothpaste for your child. I love Pigeon’s child toothpaste. Also, use soft bristles for your child’s toothbrush. I like Safety First and Colgate’s colorful baby toothbrush. Nani, my niece, was brought to the dentist […]

>Yesterday was my Aunt’s 9th Day or THE PASIYAM

> Pasiyam is a filipino culture done nine days after the death of a loved one. My Aunt’s was yesterday and our family gathered in prayers for the repose of her soul. After which, a sumptuous dinner followed. I just wish I was there to celebrate it with them. And then another distant family member […]

>GAIN PLUS ADVANCE VS. NIDO JR

> A little break over the scary stuff. We’ve been to P’s pediatrician and he insisted I stop giving P Gain Plus Advance and vitamins. He said children in the US are given solids and fresh milk at this stage and so should we. He said I can give P Bearbrand, Anchor or Nido instead. […]

>THIRD EYE: IS YOURS OPEN OR CLOSE?

> Do you believe that we all have third eye? It is said to be located between our brows at the center of the forehead. All of us have this it’s just that most of us have closed third eye. When your third eye is open you are able to see elements that are from […]

>AFTER THE RAIN…

> We’ve all returned to life. I let a week pass before I fully faced my old routine. I was afraid I’d go cold on my usual work so I gave myself a few more days to relax and breathe.My Aunts, Uncles and cousins back at the province had moved on as well, even my […]

>THE FAMILY THAT LAUGHS TOGETHER STAYS TOGETHER

> Let me share what I learned from this trying time. I learned that DEATH is inevitable. Even the toughest and strongest person dies. It’s an end result we are all bound to face. The hardest part is accepting the loss and dealing with it. As for my family, we were faced with a sudden […]

>DEATH AND MOVING ON

>I’m back in my own reality—or at least physically I am. My heart, my mind and my soul are still lost somewhere in Marbel, with my family. I wanted to stay longer and be with them for at least two more weeks. But for some reason I can’t. So here I am trying to get […]

>YOUR PRAYER IS DEEPLY APPRECIATED

> Please pray for the eternal repose of the soul of our dearly beloved Nanay Tess De Jesus-Morales. She was always the loving aunt and the strong one. But leukemia surprised us all like an unexpected guest at night. It was too strong and her frail body can only take so much. Today, the good […]

>Prayers and Goodbyes

> photo credit: Jalalspages My Aunt, Nanay Tess, as we fondly call her is my Tatay’s eldest sister. She was hospitalized last week from a week long fever, gum bleeding and hematuria. The initial finding was Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura because her platelet was down to 7000 as compared to the normal 150-400,000. Today she was […]

>ELEMENTARY GRADUATION

> My elementary graduation was a breeze, it was sometime in March 1995. It wasn’t an extra ordinary day. I wore my old uniform but Mommy made me wear new socks and shoes (simply because I will still use it the next school year) and of course topped with my white toga and white graduation […]

>PEACHES UPDATE

> My baby’s 14 months now and she’s accomplished pretty much and gave T and I many smilestones. She’s memorized the names of the people she sees everyday. No, she can’t say their names yet but she’s attempting to, she can only point at the person when asked, “Where’s Granny?”, “Where’s Ate Myrna?” and “Where’s […]

>MARTIAL LAW BABIES…ARE YOU OR ARE YOU NOT?

> For two days, my brother in law couldn’t stop talking and raving about a book he wants me and his kuya to read. He said it was good for us because both of us (T and I) are Martial Law Babies. He was all praises and all rave about the book that it got […]

>LOOK GOOD EVEN WHEN PREGNANT

>Our dear friend Mike’s wife is pregnant of their 1st child. He was calling me earlier because his wife was in really bad shape. She’s on her first trimester and she’s vomiting almost all day. I said it would be best to consult their OB as she might be experiencing hyperemesis. Turns out the wife […]
