Priceless Reaction

This is indeed a week late post. I’m so sorry about that but as you may all know by now I have a huge posts backlog all across my 9 blogs. No, I'm not in a blogging coma. It’s still about the car accident issue of course. It’s only now that I gather enough guts, time, effort and mood to write again. And since I have a new job, my blogging has to take the backseat for now too so that added to my valid reasons for not blogging. But I am not totally worried because as I have said before, writing is my passion and will always be.

This is a week late post about Christmas. I have not written anything about Christmas Day because the accident happened before Christmas. It was indeed a sad moment for us. But I am grateful that we were ok and were able to celebrate Christmas just the same.

And so last Christmas we opened our gifts just like anybody else in this planet. The kids were very happy to receive their wish lists though they were not as many as last year. Of course, Brandon was the most excited of all because of the toys he got. He has new video games and robots and movies and what not. And if Brandon was happy about his gift I bet for sure that Hubby was indeed very happy with what I got him for Christmas.

I got Hubby a whole case of San Miguel Beer! He so loved that beer the first time he tasted it in the Philippines. Too bad I have to go to Boston to get it for $8.65 for 6 packs. I got a good deal though when I bought one case because I only paid 32$ for 24 packs. Oh well, I may only had over 2$ less on the price of the beer but the glow in his eyes when he opened his gift is… priceless.

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…
