Walking through the park and reminiscing

The air is cold and the wind is blowing hard.. i dont have anything to do so i decided to write.. guess this was a perfect time to walk down memory lane... to walk back several years ago.. back from the beginning.. back to where it all started...

Exactly three years ago i went to Mindanao with two of my very best friends.. we were flown there for a fashion show and our first time to have a vacation all to ourselves.. little did i know that it was the start of a different kind of adventure..

on the way to our destination we met this guy.. he was the one who was appointed to take care of us.. he was the one who took care of our basic needs (if we had any) and toured us around the city. we clicked instantly but i never thought that "he" would change my life forever...

we started out as friends but it was a whirlwind love affair so the next thing we know we were already madly deeply in love with each other.. we were inseparable.. but i had to leave for macau.. i planned all that already so we really didnt have the chance to spend time with each other that long.. we were already satisfied with evening calls and texts until he had the chance to visit me.. to make me feel that i was really special.. i was inlove..

i left macau after serveral months of being apart.. i wanted to be with him and my only option was to leave... so i did.. i spent the next year back to modeling so that i can be flexible enough to come and visit and to have a feel of what life is on the other side of the country.. he wanted me to know him more.. to understand the nature of his job and to have an idea as to what i can do should we decide to settle down and be together...

we had lots of differences that let to quite a number of quarrels.. but it was okay ( i guess..) there would be times that i wanted to just give up and leave, but i knew that i had to fight for our love so i stayed despite of all the pain that was already piling up within me.. strange.. i was not like that at all.. but i was determined to change and be the mature woman that i am not to allow myself to decide on things without thinking about it...

the next year came.. it was more complicated... i got pregnant and had a baby.. i thought things would change.. i thought we would be more in love... but i was wrong... things went out of control... up to the point that we were already purposely hurting each other.. we can't even meet halfway anymore... we were both frustrated.. angry.. and i wanted to give up.. i did give up but i never closed the door down to the last moment that i was going to leave again for macau..

i'm back to there i started.. to where i find comfort whenever i feel lost.. here i am starting to find myself again.. to bring back the lost flame that i once had in me.. to be able to stand up on my own two feet.. it's different now that i already have a baby.. i already am constantly thinking of my own future and how i can raise my kid so that in the future she will be as strong as me...

now, those things are just memories i am trying hard not to forget... i dont regret anything that happened.. at some point in my life i was happy.. it was good while it lasted... i will just filter it so that i can keep the good ones and rid of the bad...

once again i am going to start from scratch.. and hopefully somebody will come to put color into my life...

Signs from above

I always ask for signs from the Lord.. i believe that in some ways we are connected and that whenever i am confused, sad or happy he is always there for me...

just this evening... i found out something that i wasn't supposed to know but i did for some reason and it gave me a great deal of pain.. i was a bit lucky that i was staying in my bestfriends flat and that we are going to sleep on the same bed.. her presence made me strong and her warmth calmed me down.. i felt like bursting into tears but i'm really glad that she's here with me so i was able to avoid that..

so then i prayed.. i asked the lord what i should do.. if i should keep waiting or just move on and let go.. i kept silent for a while then i returned to browsing on my facebook page.. i checked this application about what god wants you to know... i opened it and read "his" message :

On this day, God wants you to know...

... that you can be an echo of your past, or the glory of your future. Past is connected to future through the present. At this very moment, at every moment, you are choosing to carry on the past with all its troubles on your shoulders, OR to let it go and see bright future pull your forward. Choose wisely.

there... i got my signal almost immediately... call me crazy but that's exactly what i asked for... though i was still the one to choose it was almost written there... i just needed to let go of the baggages and let the bright future pull me forward! well it was just common sense written in a better manner.. but there are times that when we are troubled, we could our decisions with so many things.. but we always have the lord by our side and i am glad that he is right here with me.. please guide my heart lord for everything that i do... i offer it to you

My Little Sofia



its been a while since i last blogged something about my life.. i guess for a time i have lost myself trying to change for what i thought was right. but then it was not really change that i needed, it was just something that i "thought" would be better to do in order to prove to myself that i have properly matured... and i was wrong...

its not that i haven't matured or anything, its just that there are certain levels of maturity that haven't reached yet and i'm still on the path to that self-fulfillment. i would always think about my future but i never really took the big leap into achieving my dreams.

i'm actually a simple person.. i really never dreamed of becoming the president of a huge multinational company, or a world class model or even joining showbusiness.. all i wanted was to have a simple life..

a husband that loves me dearly, children that i will take good care of, and a dog that will play with my kids.. i also want a house with a nice lawn where my kids could play and me and my husband can cook bbq.. i want a ferrari or a porsche 911 and a simple 3.0 carat diamond engagement ring.. ( hahaha! )

now i'm starting all over again.. reorganizing my thoughts.. contemplating on my past mistakes (that i don't ever want to make again).. saving up for the future and most of all paraying to the lord god that he grant me my simple wishes (if he includes the 3.0 carat diamond ring i would really be happier.. hehe)

i'm on another journey through life (my nth chance at it).. my path to self rediscovery and the quest for my own happiness.. this time i am traveling with someone who i will love forever.. my little sofia...

5 GOLDEN RULES FOR FINDING YOUR LIFE PARTNERShare

5 GOLDEN RULES FOR FINDING YOUR LIFE PARTNER


A relationship coach lays out his 5 golden rules for evaluating the prospects of long-term success.

When it comes to making the decision about choosing a life partner, no one wants to make a mistake. Yet, with a divorce rate of close to 50 percent, it appears that many are making serious mistakes in their approach to finding Mr/Ms Right!

If you ask most couples who are engaged why they're getting married, they'll say: "We're in love." I believe this is the #1 mistake people make when they date.

Choosing a life partner should never be based on love (alone).

Though this may sound not politically correct, there's a profound truth here. Love (alone) is not the basis for getting married. Rather, love is the result of a good marriage. When the other ingredients are right, then the love will come.

Let me say it again: You can't build a lifetime relationship on love alone. You need a lot more.

Here are five questions you must ask yourself if you're serious about finding and keeping a life partner.


QUESTION #1:

Do we share a common life purpose?

Why is this so important?

Let me put it this way: If you're married for 20 or 30 years, that's a long time to live with someone.

What do you plan to do with each other all that time? Travel, eat and jog together? You need to share something deeper and more meaningful. You need a common life purpose.

Two things can happen in a marriage. You can grow together, or you can grow apart. 50 percent of the people out there are growing apart.

To make a marriage work, you need to know what you want out of life - bottom line - and marry someone who wants the same thing.


QUESTION #2:

Do I feel safe expressing my feelings and thoughts with this person?

This question goes to the core of the quality of your relationship.

Feeling safe means you can communicate openly with this person. The basis of having good communication is trust! i.e. trust that I won't get "punished" or hurt for expressing my honest thoughts and feelings.

A colleague of mine defines an abusive person as someone with whom you feel afraid to express your thoughts and feelings.

Be honest with yourself on this one. Make sure you feel emotionally safe with the person you plan to marry.


QUESTION #3:

Is he/she a mensch?

A mensch is someone who is a refined and sensitive person.

How can you test? Here are some suggestions.

1. Do they work on personal growth on a regular basis?
2. Are they serious about improving themselves?

A teacher of mine defines a good person as "someone who is always striving to be good and do the right thing".

"So, ask about your significant other: What do they do with their
time? Is this person materialistic?"

Usually, a materialistic person is not someone whose top priority is
character refinement.

There are essentially two types of people in the world: People who are dedicated to personal growth and people who are dedicated to seeking comfort.

Someone whose goal in life is to be comfortable will put personal comfort ahead of doing the right thing. You need to know that before walking down the aisle.


QUESTION #4:

How does he/she treat other people?

The one most important thing that makes any relationship work is the
ability to give.

By giving, we mean the ability to give another person pleasure.

Ask: Is this someone who enjoys giving pleasure to others or are they wrapped up in themselves and self-absorbed?

To measure this, think about the following:

1. How do they treat people whom they do not have to be nice to, such as waiters, bus boys, taxi drivers, etc?
2. How do they treat parents and siblings? Do they have gratitude and appreciation?
3. Do they show respect? If they don't have gratitude for the people who have given them everything, you cannot expect that they'll have gratitude for you - who can't do nearly as much for them!
4. Do they gossip and speak badly about others? Someone who gossips cannot be someone who loves others. You can be sure that someone who treats others poorly, will eventually treat you poorly as well.

QUESTION #5:

Is there anything I'm hoping to change about this person after we're married?

Too many people make the mistake of marrying someone with the intention of trying to "improve" them after they're married.

As a colleague of mine puts it, "You can probably expect someone to change after marriage for the worse!"

If you cannot fully accept this person the way they are now, then you are not ready to marry them.

In conclusion, dating doesn't have to be difficult and treacherous. The key is to try leading a little more with your head and less with your heart.

It pays to be as objective as possible when you are dating, to be sure to ask questions that will help you get to the key issues.

Falling in love is a great feeling, but when you wake up with a ring on your finger, you don't want to find yourself in trouble because you didn't do your homework.

Subject: HOW WILL I KNOW IF I'VE MET THE PERSON I SHOULD MARRY?

The choice of a marriage partner should not be based on "I get a warm, wonderful feeling whenever we're together and I want to have that warm wonderful feeling forever, so let's go get married".

Feelings, as we have discussed, have no logic on their own. They need to be acknowledged, of course, but they need considerable assistance from your brain.

Marriage means choosing the person you will spend the rest of your life with. This, as you may have guessed, is a very long time to spend with one person. This person will live with you, eat meals with you, sleep with you and go on vacation with you. More important yet, this person will share your children. You need to choose wisely. The decision should not be made based on feelings alone. You need to ask yourself some tough questions. The decisions have to be made on solid considerations.

Will this person be a good partner? Is she mature enough to put her own selfish desires aside to look out for what is best for the family? Is he prepared to be a good provider? What is his track record? Is he responsible enough to get a good job and keep it?

Will this person be a good parent? Can you stand the thought of your children turning out exactly like this person? They will, you know. Children spend a lot of time with their parents and consequently pick up many or most of their parents' character traits. You had better like your spouse's traits a lot because you will be seeing them again in your children.

If something were to happen to you, would you completely trust this person, alone, with the task of raising and forming your children? This is not a pleasant thought, but it is an important consideration. Not everyone dies at a ripe old age with great grandchildren gathered around the bed. Sometimes a parent dies and leaves young children in the care of the other parent. If you feel that you would need to be around to correct or lessen this person's influence on your children, then you are considering the wrong person.

Does this person share your faith in God? God does not give us children so that we can mould them into the coolest, most popular people in school. Our job is to get them to heaven. To do that, we need to raise them believing in God. It is tough to do that if only one parent believes.

Saying "This is right and that is wrong, and I want you to ignore Mommy until you are thirty-five" does not work. Small children ask about eight million questions in a single day. The answers to those questions go a long way toward forming the kind of adults they will become. Who will be answering those questions for your children?

Does this person you are marrying have sexual self-control? Single people sometimes have this idea that marriage is just some kind of lifelong sex festival and that as long as they have each other, they will never be tempted by other people. Wrong!

There are many times in every marriage when one partner or the other is sexually unavailable - illness, the last months of pregnancy, travel. There are also times when spouses, just get on each others' nerves. At times like this, other people can seem very appealing. That can be dangerous, because there are plenty of very attractive people out there who are willing to make themselves available to married men and women. Do you want someone who has never said "no" to sex? If he is not good at saying "no" at eighteen, it won't be different at forty. Do you want to worry about whether or not your Spouse is being faithful?

These are very important questions, and if you are not comfortable with all of the answers, you should definitely not marry this person.

None if this is to say that feelings play no role at all in a marriage decision. You don't have to, "Well, I suppose that you would make a good spouse and parent, so even though I don't particularly like you I guess I'll marry you'. You need to be happy and excited about the prospect of spending your life with someone. Your brain however must acknowledge that this person as a good choice.

Don't listen to your heart alone nor your head alone. Wait until your heart and head agree .

Marriage...

To those who are married, .. Not married .. and
soon to be married, I hope you will be touched with this story...


MARRIAGE



When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and
said, I've got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly.
Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.



Suddenly I didn't know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know
what I was thinking. I want a divorce.. I raised the topic calmly.



She didn't seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly,
why?



I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the
chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn't
talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what
had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory
answer; she had lost my heart to Dew. I didn't love her anymore. I just
pitied her!



With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated
that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company.



She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent
ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for
her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I
had said for I loved Dew so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of
me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a
kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several
weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now.



The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something
at the table. I didn't have supper but went straight to sleep and fell
asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Dew.



When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not
care so I turned over and was asleep again.



In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn't want
anything from me, but needed a month's notice before the divorce.

She requested that in that one month we both struggle to live as normal a
life as possible. Her reasons were simple: our son had his exams in a
month's time and she didn't want to disrupt him with our broken
marriage.



This was agreeable to me. But she had something more, she asked me to
recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our wedding day.



She requested that everyday for the month's duration I carry her out of
our bedroom to the front door ever morning.. I thought she was going
crazy. Just to make our last days together bearable I accepted her odd
request.



I told Dew about my wife's divorce conditions.. . She laughed loudly and
thought it was absurd. No matter what tricks she applies, she has to
face the divorce, she said scornfully..



My wife and I hadn't had any body contact since my divorce intention was
explicitly expressed. So when I carried her out on the first day, we
both appeared clumsy. Our son clapped behind us, daddy is holding mummy
in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to
the sitting room, then to the door, I walked over ten meters with her in
my arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; don't tell our son about
the divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outside
the door. She went to wait for the bus to work. I drove alone to the
office.



On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on my
chest. I could smell the fragrance of her blouse. I realized that I
hadn't looked at this woman carefully for a long time.. I realized she
was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair
was graying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. For a minute I
wondered what I had done to her.



On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I felt a sense of intimacy
returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me.




On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was
growing again. I didn't tell Dew about this. It became easier to carry
her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me
stronger.



She was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few
dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my
dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly realized that she had grown so
thin, that was the reason why I could carry her more easily.



Suddenly it hit me... she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her
heart. Subconsciously I reached out and touched her head.



Our son came in at the moment and said, Dad, it's time to carry mum out.
To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an
essential part of his life. My wife gestured to our son to come closer
and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I
might change my mind at this last minute. I then held her in my arms,
walking from the bedroom, through the sitting room, to the hallway. Her
hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally. I held her body tightly;
it was just like our wedding day.



But her much lighter weight made me sad. On the last day, when I held
her in my arms I could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I
held her tightly and said, I hadn't noticed that our life lacked
intimacy.



I drove to office.... jumped out of the car swiftly without locking the
door. I was afraid any delay would make me change my mind...I walked
upstairs. Dew opened the door and I said to her, Sorry, Dew, I do not
want the divorce anymore.



She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead.. Do you have
a fever? She said. I moved her hand off my head. Sorry, Dew, I said, I
won't divorce. My marriage life was boring probably because she and I
didn't value the details of our lives, not because we didn't love each
other any more. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on
our wedding day I am supposed to hold her until death do us apart.



Dew seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed
the door and burst into tears. I walked downstairs and drove away.



At the floral shop on the way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my
wife. The salesgirl asked me what to write on the card. I smiled and
wrote, I'll carry you out every morning until death do us apart.



That evening I arrived home, flowers in my hands, a smile on my face, I
run up stairs, only to find my wife in the bed - dead.



The small details of your lives are what really matter in a
relationship. It is not the mansion, the car, property, the money in the
bank. These create an environment conducive for happiness but cannot
give happiness in themselves. So find time to be your spouse's friend
and do those little things for each other that build intimacy. Do have a
real happy marriage!



If you don't share this, nothing will happen to you.



If you do, you just might save a marriage.





Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they
were to success when they gave up.

Raintree Misibis Bay Resort

Misibis is the ultimate PARADISE!

I could say lots of things about this place. My stay here has made me feel like i'm royalty! I could just imagine how it was to live during the time of the gods and goddesses. We (me, my friend and our tita) had the best time ever! And we would definitely come back if work permits us.

I soooo loved our Luxury Villa. It was pure luxury. The bed was so cozy that we all wanted to stay tucked in bed and sleep all day. But there was more to see and to experience that we had to drag ourselves out of bed. If i was with my special someone I would have wanted to just stay in the room and cuddle all day.

We were all a bunch of adventure seekers so we decided to take the ATV tour and see what the trek had to offer. Our eyes bulged out at the sight of the lovely scenery surrounding the vicinity of the resort. We all had time to take pictures not only of ourselves but also the wonderful 360 degrees beauty of the island.

The food is another reason why I would want to come back to this place. I loved the pork bbq and i will never forget how i loved the addictive chocolate cake that was named after the owner's wife Ms. Mylene. The chef definitely knows his craft and makes sure that his creations are made with love for it to taste that great.

Finally, the service... its is probably the main reason why our stay in Misibis Bay had been ultimately memorable. The staff were all so warm and accommodating. Rex, the F&B Manager was always there to make sure that all of our whims are catered to. Macky, who was Managed the rooms was also there to make sure that our stay was wonderful and even the owners was nice enough to allow us to have pictures taken with them.

Overall, I highly recommend Misibis Bay to those people who want to get away from the busy life in the city, experience being treated like royalty and most of all be impressed by the immense beauty of god's creations.

Boracay's Destruction

I can still clearly remember how beautiful Boracay Island was when I was still a kid. I grew up here in manila because my parents wanted me to study here. But every time I come back for summer or holidays new structures would emerge and the island would look different.

I remember my grandma taking me to the beach early in the morning and making me giant sand balls. And in the evening she would ask me and my cousins to stay inside the house because there was no electricity that time and it was so dark everywhere. On certain nights when we would take a stroll on the beach and come home late, we would pass this tree that had fireflies and it looked so beautiful. well, i rarely saw fireflies here in manila so seeing hundreds of fireflies made me feel like i was in some kind of fairytale.

There are lots of beautiful things I remember about Boracay and I want my little angel to be able to still experience the beauty and grandeur of Boracay, of our ancestral heritage and of God's creations. That is the main reason why I am writing this blog now.. humans continue to destroy the beauty of mother nature by consistently creating what they think is mankind's work of art but in reality is a definite eyesore that is continuing to contribute to the destruction of what God has created for us.

I saw my cousins' post about this resort that built structures on rocks that aged older than our grandparents' grandparents. I just can't believe how easy for these people to destroy what has existed for so long. These rocks couldn't take care of themselves that's why we as humans should be able to preserve the things that were just lent to us by God and not cause its destruction.

Shame to DENR for allowing the developers of this resort to push through with their plans. Maybe money really talks and those people had the resources to make this project a reality so the natural state of the rocks were disregarded. What kind of government do we have? i don't know...

I am writing this blog because I want people to be aware of the destruction that urbanization may bring. Mother nature is slowly taking its revenge to humans who continue to disrespect her. We must at least be conscious enough of the consequences of our actions so that we can avoid problems in the future.




THIS IS THE WORST ARCHITECTURE I'VE EVER SEEN. THE ARCHITECT DOES NOT LOVE/APPRECIATE THE BEAUTY OF NATURE. THE BUILDING MUST ALWAYS ADOPT TO ENVIRONMENT, NOT THE ENVIRONMENT WILL ADOPT TO THE STRUCTURE. IF YOU WANT TO DEVELOP ON TOP OF AN EXISTING "HUNDRED YEARS OLD" ROCK, YOU MUST PRESERVE ITS NATURAL STATE.

Last Day of the Love Month ♥ ♥ ♥



i know i vowed to write at least 1 blog a week... there were so many things to write about but i really didnt have the luxury to write about it anymore.. i had so many articles to write that writing on my own blog is too much to handle..

so what can i say about love?

there are so many aspects of love that i have yet to write about and even if the love month is already almost finished, i still have a lifetime to write about love.. oh love...

to start with, my love life isn't really that great... i am having problems with my current bf and its not that easy to decide whether i should stay or leave the relationship specially now that i have a little angel to consider. well of course its not that easy to just say that i'm going to give up on someone that i used to love with all my life.. now i can say that i still love him but not head over heels anymore.. maybe head to knees or even only up to my hips... there are things that happened already that we can never take back and its not that easy to fill up that gap that started to take the two of you apart..

nevertheless, we are both trying our best to make things work.. well i know i am.. but i will never try to force anything upon us.. if its not meant to be then so be it! i always pray to god to help us realize things on our own, to help us see if we are really right for each other, if we are meant to be together.. i never prayed for us to get back together i just tell the lord that i leave everything up to him and in his due time, he will show me the answer to all my prayers.

as for my little chubby girl, who is starting to lose weight now because she always wants to crawl and lick her fingers (yeah... lick and not suck), everyday i fall more and more in love with her! not that i wasn't that inlove already but as she grows older i want her to feel how much i love her. how i would do everything for her just like my mom did for me.. but that's another story.. whenever she looks at me i feel her love, her unconditional love and it completes my essence as a woman (ms universe? sushmita sen!) yeah.. she completes me ( jerry maguire!) hehehe! sofia alexei makes me really really happy! i love her! mmmmmuah little angel!

my parents... i am ever so thankful to them for my existence here on earth. them who have been so patient and kind.. who supported me in all my endeavors and helped me get back to my feet after every problem.. they showed me how to live life with dignity and respect and gave me the values that made me what i am today.. those values that i want to pass on to my child.. to my future children.. to the future generation of our world... i love them so much.. and i will forever be grateful that god blessed gave me the best pair of parents in the world! muah to you two nanay and tatay! i love you!

and so i continue on the journey of my life. i will experience more love.. not only from my family but also my friends.. i consider myself lucky because i feel so loved.. i will continue to write.. about me, my life, my lord and my love... ♥ ♥ ♥

2010

This is my first post for the last day of the first month of the year 2010...


Christmas was okay.. I'm happy that my family is complete, my aunt and cousins were here and sofia was big enough to enjoy the blinking of the christmas lights.. She even went to church with us but ended up sleeping the whole time.. it was late so its okay.

New year was nice too.. it was my baby's first new year so I made sure that she enjoyed the fireworks. Me on the other hand had a nice time too since it was my first new year away from home.. yeah.. we spent it in Camp Sabros, Digos City. The place was really nice. The weather was just like Baguio, well maybe a bit colder but it was great. In front of our room was a magnificent view of Mt. Apo. At night, the place looked as if i was in fantasy land except i didn't have my prince charming with me. Eric was always playing poker with his cousins and other colleagues and i was busy taking care of fifi. So it was not even close to any fantasy that i have. Anyway, the place was perfect for people who both want adventure and serenity in one.

It was a family vacation.. Eric's family (his entire clan actually) was there to spend the new year. I missed my parents terribly but i had no choice so i just opted to enjoy the stay there, besides it was really nice spending time with eric's cousins and siblings.

When I got back from Mindanao i didnt really do anything but work.. i didnt get to work that much because we were always drinking, or talking and there were no internet connection in Camp Sabros.

After just 2 weeks of staying in manila, we had to fly to cebu for Sinulog. My parents were supposed to come with me and sofia but unfortunately my dad had to wait for the office to finalize everything. So i had to fly with sofia without any yaya! Ugh, it was hard but i was just so thankful that my little baby is truly an angel. She cried for a bit but fell asleep eventually. That was the case as well when we flew back to manila.

Yeah... the first month of this year was really quite busy that i neglected my blogging duties. I vow to at least post once a week if not everyday. I miss blogging really.. and it helps keep me sane ;)

Belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
