"You're going to come cross people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it's always their actions you should judge them by. It's actions, not words, that matter."

Hubba hubba

Yesterday, while I was cleaning I unexpectedly saw vegetable peddler with big umbrella and a wooden cart. Me, with uncombed messy bun and wearing a  house dress scurried away to call the woman. I eagerly bought string beans, onions, bitter gourd and squash. Then one lady neighbor saw me and told me "I seldom see you outside, blah blah and you look sexier now." I said Thank you of course.I don't know if it's true or not but in my mind I was so much joy because they aren't the type who praise you so much...instead you'll hear some negative remarks or nothing at all. Well for the very first time I heard something uncommon. And to think I am  inevitably on a diet plan. When I got back home I weighed myself and voila... I've lost some. I also heard my younger son saying one morning... "Mama, I noticed you look slimmer...."
And having two in a row makes me feel hubba hubba!

I am forever on a diet plan not because I want to look good, which of course all women do and want. I am dieting and always wanting to lose some because of my doctor's advice. Being scoliotic you need to be able to maintain a lighter frame because of our weaker back bones. Would anyone believe I used to be a 181?!

I am now on my 153 frame. I target to go a hundred forty plus. That's a feat for me. Everyone knows how hard it is to lose weight specially one at my age range. I am more focus now on how to maintain a healthy living by trying to stay away from the dining table and not lose some important nourishments as well. 

I am a firm believer that "Healthy is truly our wealth"

Happy Birthday

**Tea Wii **


On this day 25 years ago I received one of the best mother's day gift I could have ever received, my beautiful baby girl was born and has blessed me ever since. I am so proud of the beautiful young woman she has become and so proud to not only call her my daughter but my true best friend indeed...

I love you...

Wish you all the best that you deserved.

Oh god, what's happening?!

MH370

MH17

Air Algerie AH5017


Much as I want, I do not intend to blog about the worst news we are having right now and in the past weeks or so. As it is always hugging the front page and more and more we read a lot of those bits of news blow by blow by different newspapers and on tv too here and world wide. But what is this again about the Air Algerie AH5017 that has crashed somewhere in Northern Mali? This is very saddening and sickening because many lives are wasted in a huff and very untimely to meet their ends in such a nightmarish way.

How can this tragic events be prevented? Where is the Malaysian Airjet MH370? That is so cruel and unfair to leave those relatives hanging whether their loved ones is still alive or what. Why can't it be found still up to this date? With our top technologies why are they having a hard time locating that humongous chunk of a metal? MH370 is yet to be found... let's hope there is still a chance.

Now with the tragic end of MH17, let us just hope the UN will do something more intensive with regards to nations at war. Let's pray for the war to end, to let us find a more meaningful life to live without the use of guns, ammunitions and warheads...

To all mothers: This is for you... for us...

 "You realize that you habitually thought of Mom when something in your life was not going well, because when you thought of her it was as though something got back on track, and you felt re-energized.”

 ~Please Look After Mom~



with Ayachan (Japan 2012)

"I hate her!"

That was the line I had in my mind when I was a kid. I used to hate her. I felt she's trying to empower my existence as an individual human being. I was not allowed to do this and that. I had my first official boyfriend when I was in 2nd year college. Not allowed to butt in when she's talking. I couldn't break her rules. I couldn't even say no. Dictated every move I should make. I really couldn't understand her. I was crying in my room every night. I really really couldn't get her point not until I grew up to be a woman. Now, I perfectly understand her. She molded me to be not just a woman but as a strong-minded, unconstrained and a sensible lady. I am here because of her. She's my strength and my weakness. She's my best friend. She's my life!
Mama, you never leave me alone. I am truly grateful that He gave me you.
From your family, everyday is Mother's Day!


Note: Aya's FB post, so touching that it made me cry. (sorry for being such a hovering-BS-kind-of-mom...)  

with my 1st and my 3rd...
My 3rd wrote with this picture..."Wala ng hihigit pa sa PAGMAMAHAL ng isang INA sa kanyang mga ANAK."

Happy Mother's Day

There's never a day goes by na hindi ko naalala ang nanay ko sa tanda kong ito. But we've just got to move on and deal with what is ahead of us, more importantly to do our role as mothers. If I will compare my kids to the younger me then...I am in no match. I wonder how life would be had they been hardheaded or ballistic like me before...always wanting to prove my point. Yes I got some petty issues before with my mother that I thought was so big...if life can be rewinded, I probably would deal with it not the way I did that usually makes her broken-hearted   (...cue music)


To my NANAY, I know you are just watching over us...and am sure you are proud of me because I raised your grands much better than my person... and I will do the same for your future greats. I love you nanay... for giving me life and for raising a strong person that I am today... <3 p="">
