Really… you gotta see this!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Incendia Health. All opinions are 100% mine.

When I was a kid I was jealous of those people wearing eyeglasses because I thought it was cool. So I asked mom to buy me a cool pair of non-prescription eyeglasses and wore them as an accessory to match my outfit.

Now that I am no longer a kid, I do wear eyeglasses but no longer as an accessory but a tool to help me read and become productive with whatever I am doing. I now wear glasses but it doesn’t necessarily mean that I love them. I am wearing them because I have to.

At my ripe age, it is indeed inevitable not to wear one because I am always reading and working in front of the computer. And at my age, I hate wearing them because it is too delimitating. It’s a burden. It’s a pain in-you-know-where because I always lose them. And getting a new pair each time I lost or break them is too expensive. But I am not too worried about it now because I know that there is hope out there. I am contemplating of having an iLasik surgery so that I can get rid of my eyeglasses and have an improved vision.

What made me consider that option? Well, I was once browsing online and I stumbled upon this cool iLASIK Video Contest. It was awesome and I love how those amateur singer wannabes made an almost professional vision about iLasik. No wonder they won the contest. Too bad they already picked the winner, had I known about this earlier, I might have joined but then, I don’t know if I can sing that well much less compose my own song for the contest.

Anyway, here is the detail of the said contest.
“Abbott Medical Optics Inc. (AMO), a global leader in laser vision correction, has announced the winners of the “You Gotta See This” Video Contest. Entrants made videos showing the impact of improved vision on their lives for a chance to win cash and prizes — including the $5,000 Grand Prize.”

And if you want to know more about it… you can view the winners — and all the other entries — at You can also register to receive valuable eye care products.

Trust me, iLASIK Video Contest is one of the coolest video I ever watched because those people in the videos are ordinary people whom I can relate to.

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…
