Roses are still Red

I was taking a break when my co-worker excitedly called me to go back to the Y. I was trying to take a nap in my car [as usual] even for just 30 minutes but my reverie was cut short due to the urgency of her call.

I hurriedly got out of my car and ran back to the Y because it started raining again. As I approached the front desk I saw a dozen red roses sitting on the counter. I already had a hunch. It was from Hubby.

It’s our second Wedding Anniversary today. This morning I prepared his lunch but this time aside from the usual sandwich, fruits, juice and chocolate pudding for dessert… I wrapped the card that I bought last week in a plastic bag so that it won’t get wet by the ice pack inside his lunch box.

This is our second year as husband and wife. Yes, we do have some rough times and ups and downs… and just like any couples… we also kiss and make up and keep our faith for each other. Yes, our relationship is not perfect… but we are trying our best to keep our love alive. Yes, we will always have trials along the way… and with all the trials we will always have each other... because the roses are still red and will always be red.

Happy Anniversary My Sweetest. I love you… always!

Note: I had to buckle the flowers up in the passenger's seat to bring them home.


Congrats on your 2nd anniversary! The roses are beautiful! What a nice surprise. Always fun getting flowers at work, even though bringing them home is not always easy--nor is the bill when it comes later.

HI Ruthi, sorry, I missed your anniversary. For a while I have not been here also since for a while this has been silent, but I am not passing the blame to you, it's my fault for getting lost with time and haven't checked what's up! Sorry to have missed your anniversary again, that was very sweet of hubby!

How are you now? Sorry, have not been logging in at my FS for a while, I am more into blogging. I followed your advise Ruthi, and am doing sponsored posts now, and you are right, we earn a lot more than at Today, pa piso piso lang kasi sa Today.

Miss you.
Aw! So sweet. Congratulations!

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…
