I know... I know...

This year, I’m planning to start dieting again.

I know! I know! I have mentioned about dieting many times before. And I have blogged about it too for the Nth time across my five blogs. I can’t help it. I do want to slim down. I have the drive. I have the momentum. And I have the desire. What I don’t have though… is time and perseverance! Oh how I wish I have the metabolism like other people who can eat like a truck driver but never gain weight.

I know! I know! I always have alibis. And I have a really valid alibi for not achieving the “hot body” that I so desire to knock my Hubby off. He is my Alibi! He always tells me… I love you for what You are and You are sexy in my eyes! Too bad, I believe him so!

I know! I know! There are lots of options that I can take to achieve my goal and lap-band the woodlands could be the future journey of my life to my dream figure. Or better yet, take the long and winding road of the treadmill and die in exhaustion.

I know! I know! I have promised myself that this summer… I will be with my cousin in Malibu. So... let's see if I will be clad in sexy bathing suit or long gown!


hehehehe! I have the same problem, I've said it too many times but it is really hard to do. I wish you goodluck Amiga for the Malibu trip...once your with your friends or family, the tables will be lined with goodies and treats! (hard to resist) hehehehe I am sure you can do it and don't feel bad about your body because your body is great :)

Oh my, I too, gained several pounds during (and after?) the yuletide season! I need to be back on the thread mill, but can't seem to find time... will be rooting for that itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny polka-dotted bikini of yours! Go girl! Surprise yourself (and us!)

@Tes... OMG... me and my big mouth. Now I am pressured to do something with my body. Let's see if I will be surprised.

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…
