Fun and Educational Toys

Brandon has been telling everyone what he likes for Christmas. He has been giving us some hints of what he wants for Christmas. And has been revealing his wish list to everyone he knows even in school. Apparently, he likes to have all the toys he sees on TV commercials. Oh well, what do you expect from kids?

I have already bought a few presents online. But when it comes for toys, I am kinda fussy especially for Brandon. Considering that he is a special kid, I want to give him something that will help him develop some skills. I want a toy that is not just fun to play with but educational as well. Good thing his teacher told me to check out, an online toy store where they offer huge stocks of cool and fun toys for kids of all ages. She told me that she got some magnet most popular toys for her own kids for Christmas too.

So I checked it out and I got Brandon the MagNext iCoaster toy at very reasonable price. The iCoaster is a build-your-own magnetic rollercoaster complete with drops, jumps, loops and DJ mixes [for sound effects]. Brandon will surely like it because he likes building and putting together different parts to make something out. And what I like most about iCoaster is that it combines sight, sound and speed for a more exciting experience. It also uses extreme magnetic force to run the high-tech design toy and it applies some ultra-cool physics too. Isn't that educational or what?

They say Christmas is for kids and if it so, I want to make sure that my kid will really have the best gift that will help him learn some skills and have fun too. What about you?

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…
