between a TV set and the bathroom

My Saturday was really a blast, though I am still looking forward to go to Cathedral Ledge. After Maya's Ballet Class, we went to Shop N Save to buy some groceries for lunch. We planned to cook sinigang na baboy”. It took us only about half an hour to buy our groceries because Medy was rushing us [she needed to pee].

Yup, you know what I mean. Medy had that overpowering urge to go to the bathroom that moment so we need to cut our shopping short so we can get out of the store pronto. Medy was already walking like she was doing a salsa dance steps on our way to the parking lot so we needed to run and get in the car quick.

Good thing the traffic was smooth and we trekked the road nice and easy though a little bit faster than we should because… you know. As we turned the corner, Medy saw this TV and TV table on the side of the road and she stopped. And guess what… Medy forgot all about her going-to-the-bathroom-quick dilemma because of that one piece of paper pasted on the TV set… FREE TV.

So we got out of the car and stayed there for 5 more minutes, trying to figure out how we can put the TV and the TV table in the car. We had few more minutes of discussions and Medy was totally obsessed with the free TV. Oh well, as a supportive friend… I helped her clear the back of her SUV and Richard [Medy’s friend who lives next door where we found the TV set and table] loaded the TV for her.

Now, Maya has a new TV so we can watch other TV programs other than cartoons. Good Job Medy. [Oh, BTW… she did go to the bathroom when we got home but went back again to get the TV table afterwards]

Technical Support to Operate… our Husbands

Last night Hubby and I had a little LQ over a TV show and a back-scratching-com-rubbing errand that I used to do while we are watching TV. You see it has become his habit to ask me scratch and rub his back while watching TV. And yes, I ask him the same thing too. Why not, we have a saying… scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours, right? But last night he was complaining that his back hurts because he worked all day on the roof and he asked me to rub his back. I said no. Then, towards the middle of the TV program, my back itched and I asked him to scratch my back and he said no too. So I decided to sleep in the other bedroom last night. But he kept bugging me 3 times and asking me to move back to our bedroom because he said he can’t sleep without me by his side. I was surprised, because he would sometimes bitch about my snoring. He said it’s too loud he cannot sleep despite the fact that he too snores like hell [and I had it on video to prove my point].

Anyway, I didn’t want to rub his …

one year and we'll be counting

We did it. We made it. We passed it. A year of monotonously tedious ups and downs… a year of ostensibly constant struggle… a year of seemingly endless adjustment… a year of cyclically countless kisses and make ups… we are still standing strong – forgiving and forgetting each other’s shortcomings… accepting and recognizing each other’s flaws… tolerant and patient with each other’s imperfections.

And just like any normal married couple... here we are… after all the woozy marital roller coaster ride we did pass the test of time with flying colors. Here we are… after all the “I-give-up” and the “I-can’t-do-it-no-more” and the “that’s-it-I'm-done”, we still didn’t let go and kept holding on. Here we are... after all the innumerable hurts and pains we caused each other due to our own shallowness and pride, our love for each other remains stronger.

And so here we are. After all, we still have what it takes to be a couple... a couple with so much reasons to celebrate... a couple with so mu…

Panunuyo: American Version

Panunuyo is a Filipino tradition associated with courtship. There are lots of Filipino courtship traditions that are now neglected or taking a back seat in modern Pinoy romantic relationship. Gone are the days of the "harana" (serenade) because young couples nowadays have videoke to boost their relationship. But I am proud to say that I experienced "harana" when I was younger. I am not that old, okay. It was not that long ago actually. And it just so happened that in my province it was still being practiced "that" time. Anyway, I may be a Filipina at heart and a hopeless romantic that is why when I committed myself to this American guy, I had to convince myself that my being a hopeless romantic has to take back seat too.

When my Mike came to the Philippines to visit me, I was only hoping that he will like me and that the feeling will be mutual. I was just hoping that he would pop the question so that I could take the last train ride without looking back. A…
