Good Luck, Sis

9:53 PM Wednesday, November 26, 2008


I'm really praying that you'll pass the Nursing Board this weekend sis... i've seen you work hard. I also can't help but really want this for you because your future depends on it. I want you to have a good life. I want you to be reaping nice rewards.

Most of all, I want our parents to have more faith that they have indeed provided well for us and need not worry about our future anymore. So they can enjoy the rest of their present... and what remains of their health and their youth.

I love you. We all do. Just do your best... and God will do the rest.

The Gross Food Trips

12:39 AM Wednesday, November 19, 2008

I just realized, after pouring fish sinigang broth on my rice and then topping the lot with sotanghon from ginisang sardinas that I am being weird again. Especially since my hubby gave a momentary disgusted look at my plate.

Is this PMS? Or am I pregnant again?

I had six choco chip cookies for dessert... and a bag of popcorn after. Eeek!

Not Torn Between Two Loves

What does a Filipino do when confronted by leftovers from lunch (sinigang with a slightly spicy broth and choice pork parts) and the viand for the evening (chicken adobo, marinated in sukang paombong)?

Not get torn between the two, I hope.

Piping hot rice with lots of the sinigang broth tastes all the more delicious when spiced up by the adobo sauce, I tell you. :)

Yeah... I am one of those who can pile almost everything together in my plate and enjoy it. I sometimes find myself even making spaghetti a viand with my rice, when they're heaped together onto my plate. And although I don't top champorado over a lunch of paksiw na isda, I have no problems eating it as dessert immediately after a main meal (no matter what the viand was).



Or I just love Pinoy food that much. :)

Hubs wasn't sure it was a good idea, since it might bring up memories of Py. But the decision to have our son's hair shaved was more a parenting tradition that we've always liked. Besides, silently, i'd rather we have our son's head shaved because we think it's cool, and not because his hair is falling off from chemo.

He does sometimes remind me of Py, especially when he has his back turned to us. Even my sister sometimes catches herself pausing, getting confused. And there's that hint of a resemblance somewhere too, when light catches my son's nose bridge. But other than that, it's really great that he looks like me and has his dad's full lips (Py had his father's thin lips).

But oh, the memories.

And I can't help feeling guilty somewhat... unsure how my brother is feeling. SIL is great with it, thankfully. But then again, hers is a mother's heart.

And well, since mine is a mother's heart too, I can't help but also think how dashingly handsome my Baby Boy Ama is :D He looks like a tambay sa kanto. Hehe.

My Charmed Marathon

I'm currently on Season 5 now, where Piper is pregnant and Phoebe is not in love with Cole anymore and Paige has resigned from work to be a full-time witch and part-time whitelighter.

Gosh, I miss Prue.

And Paige looks so much like Michael Jackson, I can't help but wonder how I could have thought her pretty/beautiful.

It's Not That I Don't Care

It's just really that I am actually busy living my life to blog much. There are a hundred things I do want to write about though, but they end up being forgotten as more and more things happen everyday.

Who knew October could be such an eventful month?

And my November weekends are also already fully-booked now. The agenda is always family time and bonding. I'm backlogged in posts, mails and picture uploads. Yikes.

December cannot help but also be a busy month too, what with too many happenings already competing for the first week slot in my calendar. Sigh.

Not really a complaint here, though. I hope others are enjoying their loved ones as much!
