Life - is like a tube of toothpaste!

This post brought to you by Toms of Maine. All opinions are 100% mine.

I used to feel that life is tough but I was wrong. Life – is like a tube of toothpaste. Yes, when you got that bitter taste on your mouth… just brush your teeth and you’ll soon enjoy a fresh cool breath. LOL

For an immigrant like me, change is a huge thing. When I moved here from Asia, a lot of adjustment has to be made even as simple as using an unfamiliar toothpaste. Why toothpaste? Well, bear with me, I am talking about metaphor here.

Life is predictably unpredictable. Life is full of Wicked Fresh moments, memories, experiences and discoveries and in my case… I had to adapt and blend in. I had to use what is available and at my new home… Wicked Fresh Toothpaste is the universal toothpaste and Wicked Fresh Mouthwash is the official mouthwash… and I have no choice but to use them. Hahahaha

So what’s up with the toothpaste? Oh yes, I am talking about Tom’s of Maine – the leading local company that has been committed to supporting people, communities and the planet for 40 years here in Maine. They manufacture oral and personal care products made from natural flavor oils and botanical extracts for cavity protection and fresh breath. My family loves the products not just because of the protection we get from them but because they are locally made and we buy local to support Maine economy.

If you have not tried Tom's Of Maine, it’s about time and share your Wicked Fresh moments for a chance to win Wicked Fresh!™ Prizes at ( Check out That's Wicked Fresh contest page here. And yes, you can get social by joining Tom’s of Maine on Facebook and/or follow on Twitter @TomsofMaine.

And boy, did it change my outlook in life? Yes! Big time! Seriously speaking… the toothpaste is just one of the many changes that I need to accept with good faith. Life is tough but with new fresh thinking and wicked humor… I can breathe Maine’s air with cool understanding.

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…
