Language Week

>> Friday, August 29, 2008

I’m super busy this day, took a leave from work and readied Josh’ things for St. Audry’s celebration of Linggo ng Wika celebrated every August in respect to Philippine language and commemorated on the founder Manuel L. Quezon’s August 19 birthday. Josh has two costumes: farmer’s clothes for the planting rice dance and barong tagalong for the national anthem little speech.

As usual when it comes to my kids’ activities I’m a little bit nervous for them. Like for Josh he doesn’t want practices, he’ll just memorize and he’s ok. He doesn’t want repetitive practices, he told like a big boy that he knows it already, need not worry about it. True to his word he delivered it loud and clear.


Dance and Speech Practice

>> Wednesday, August 27, 2008

Since periodical tests were finished already the school teachers practiced the kids for the presentation programs for the ‘linggo ng wika’ (week of the Filipino language). Last week Josh wasn’t present when they started their dance practice but he easily learned the dance today and even memorized his part easily, he remembered the lines very fast. He’s always like that he doesn’t want repetitive practice and memorization. I heard him doing the practice presentation in front of his sisters and my Mom.

1st Periodical Exam

>> Monday, August 25, 2008

First day of Josh First Periodical Examination and I was a little bit anxious because Josh never reviewed on any of his subjects. He told me that his teacher has already reviewed them and he knows it already. You can’t make him sit and review the subjects that he knows already so we just concentrated on the lessons that he’s not so keen about like the greater than and less than in Math, I taught him some technique. Josh is so good in reading and identifying letters and words so he doesn’t need review on it, as he has just told me. I told him I will believe with what he is saying but be sure that he really know what he’s saying. Cool kid!


Triple Celebration

>> Sunday, August 24, 2008

We celebrated Ruth, Redge and Ninang Remy’s birthday which falls today in one eat-together only. As it’s Sunday and our fellow brother requested a different food this time we prepared 5 kilos of macaroni soup, sandwiches and drinks. It took awhile before everything was cooked and prepared. But by the time that our bible sharing was over the soup was perfectly cooked and we all had our fill of the celebrants’ blowout. We also had our takeout!


It’s My Turn Now!

>> Friday, August 22, 2008

It’s my turn now to care for my Mom as Redge was needed in her office now. Anyway I’ve fixed my leave and asked my boss that I would be absent today. Mom has appetite now and I’m rounding the whole place around us to look for anything that she wished to eat, my Mom was actually laughing at me every time I told her to wish and I’ll get it for her. She told that she was like a pregnant woman that everything she wants must be given lol! It’s nice to be back home after two days work in the office. Done all my chores and after I checked that my mother was rested I started my blogging.


Mom Was Still Recovering

>> Wednesday, August 20, 2008

It’s always good to have some rest because you feel fresh and vibrant. It’s been a long weekend because my dayoff extended through the holidays. I’ve had four days off from office works and enjoyed my days with my kids as full time mommy. My kids were so happy when they learned on Saturday that I’ll have four days with them, Josh actually jumped lol! It’s also a good chance that the holiday falls on Ruth and Redge birthday so I don’t have to file vacation leave.

Redge didn’t go to her work today as Mom still needs care and attention as she’s slowly recovering from her sickness. We scheduled our leave and it’s my turn tomorrow. Maybe I really should plan my last day in office as little by little Mom is showing signs of old age and she needs us always.


Sis' Birthday!

>> Tuesday, August 19, 2008

It’s my younger sis’birthday! I’m not going to give out her age though lol! Since our dear Mom is sick these past 2 days we decided to make it a simple birthday only. Actually Redge always wanted her birthday like this – peaceful and quiet. She didn’t want appointments and scheduled activities on her birthday.

Bestfriend Jen was the only visitor because Jen is like a family to us, not really a visitor. We grew up like sisters having known her since we’re in sophomore in high school. She brought chocolate cake and we just cooked pancit canton and Jen’s favorite crispy fried chicken. As always we chatted and laughed like in the old days but now blogging is our main course of the day as we’re all hookup with blogging now.


Ruthie Pie is 11 Now!

>> Monday, August 18, 2008

Ruth is 11 years old now and to celebrate her birthday I took my 3 kids in the mall. They’ve been requesting that all they want is to have some nice time in Tom’s World and they want to go around the mall with me. Since my Mom and Redge can’t go with us as Mom was sick we planned to just buy foods and celebrate her birthday in our house.

I let them play at their favorite arcade store and shop at Ever for their clothes and shoes. It’s been my habit that if one of my kids is celebrating a birthday all of them will also have new clothes or things, of course the celebrant gets more. They were beaming with excitement and was tired enough when they finished gaming, our last games was basketball and we all played lol!

Mom was better when we get back and she ate with us on Ruth’s birthday celebration. I didn’t cook any; we just bought all our foods – cakes, pizza, ice cream and chicken. Important thing is Mom is well now and my kids were very happy especially Ruth who kissed me and thanked me for a HAPPY birthday!


Mom Was Sick

>> Sunday, August 17, 2008

My Mom was sick and feeling so weak, we arrived home from church sensing that something was not normal to her. Mom’s feeling cold and lacks appetite. We would ask her what she wants to eat then after tasting the food she will lose the appetite to continue eating it. We prayed for Mom’s recovery and Redge asked me to accompany her in caring for Mom as she can’t carry her by herself only.

Mom can’t stand and walk to the bathroom by herself I need to almost carry her. That makes Mom sad because she hates the feeling that she’s weak. Anyway I just massaged her back after and told her to try to get some sleep so her body can recover fast. I stayed in their room the whole night. No need to hurry up as its holiday tomorrow. Hope Mom will get better tomorrow.


Little Plans

>> Saturday, August 16, 2008

Had some little planning for my eldest Ruth’s birthday on the 18th of this month. We’ve discussed and agreed to celebrate it in her school but GMA declared it as holiday in place of August 21 so our plans were changed. Maybe we’ll just celebrate it in our house and invite my daughter’s close friends. Gen suggested that we just go out in the mall and enjoy the day there. Oh well whatever will be the celebration it’s fine with me as long as my kids are happy. That would make me happy also!

Pastor's Birthday

>> Tuesday, August 12, 2008

Our Pastor in the church celebrated his birthday today and we took our leave of absence to greet and see him on his special day. We cooked everything in their house. It’s me who did the steamed tilapia with mayo, grated cheese and fried garlic powder, my favorite actually. The ministers bought cake and cooked 10 kilos lechon kawali, the most in-demand food. All sisters are in-charge of other foods like white pancit, siomai and the fish that I prepared.

We didn’t only come for the birthday greetings but for the sharing or words as well. We know that Pastor was very happy with our presence because I’ve seen it in his eyes the happiness of having his family, brethren and friends on his special day.


Missing My Bes

>> Monday, August 11, 2008

Grabbed this pic from Joy dear, sister of my bestfriend JennyL. It just striked me this morning that I really miss her. Because of my very hectic schedule I missed my every other Saturday visit to her which I oftenly do when I'm free.

It's nice that these days we have our instant messaging through yahoo messenger which gave us time to chat online even if we're on our work. If I want to update what's happening to her in details I just visit her 5 sites, actually it's her 3 domains that I frequently visits, Slice of Life (her main blog), Jenny Said So for her photos that I love seeing and This and That Online - her shopping blog.

And as always If I really want to hear her voice and we both have free time I call her. Talking to her on the phone is still the best.

GSP and Malling

>> Saturday, August 9, 2008

Finally we've visited the SM branch in Taytay and it's because the activity of my girls' Girl Scout was held there. It was a GSP All Age Activities that's why the management have under estimated the capacity of the SM event center to accommodate all Girl Scouts from Rizal and in other towns of Metro Manila near Rizal. We usually held our program in Pasig capitol because the place there is so big it can be used for large function

Anyway since it's in the mall the kids were so happy not just in girl scouting but also in the thought of strolling after the activities. True to their thoughts I really let them roam , stroll and eat wherever they want so they can relax and have some bonding with them. We've visited shops catering to kids like National Bookstore, Precious Pages, Quantum, we even looked at Lumanog musical instruments because Gen was eyeing Lyre and Guitar instrument. I just stopped at some surplus and garments store. Final destination was at SM hypermart to do some grocering and marketing. We're all very happy and tired when we finally reached home.


Visit of Jesus from the Philippines

>> Friday, August 8, 2008

I grabbed this touching post of my sister Rhedge when I visited her site. And just like her I also want to share it with you.



When He gets to your PC, escort Him to the next stop.
Please don't allow Him to sleep on your PC.
The message He is carrying is very important and needs to go round.
May God bless you as you do this - AMEN.

Say a prayer, then pass Him on to bless others.
Our assignment is to Love and Spread the Gospel throughout the world.
Have a blessed day by touching somebody's life today!

I just did. He's walking around the world - via e-mail!!
Pass it on ! So He can get there.
When you forward this, put where He left in the Title Box.

I am passing it to All my friends on my blog lists, so they too will be blessed!
Please feel free to grab it.


Mat and Josh

>> Thursday, August 7, 2008

Mat visited us together with his Mom & Dad (my brother and SIL). We’re always excited whenever we saw him because we didn’t see him on a daily basis and he’s such a very active and smart kid. Josh and Mat were very fond of each other and every time they see each other they play endlessly and with much eagerness for each other’s frolics. This time they ran and ran and played rough, they almost circled the whole running and laughing all the way from terrace to kitchen. When they played ball we asked them to move away from lights and vases. Actually we can’t concentrate on what we’re discussing and I just turned my attention to these two little funny boys. I asked them to stop awhile and pose for me because I want a picture of them together. They easily gave in and posed but I had a hard time as they kept on moving all along the pictorial. Boys are boys really!

Prayer for the MV Princess of the stars fatalities and survivors.

Dear God, we pray that you comfort each bereaved family everyday as they grieved for their loss, we pray that you will supply all their needs, we pray for the survivors that they may have a good life after the tragedy, that you will bless them and let them know in the deepest part of their heart that in spite of what have happened, you LOVE and CARE for them. This we pray in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen. I encourage everyone to keep the prayer going. LET’S P.U.S.H. (PRAY UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS).
