T’is the Season… for shopping.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pier 1 Imports. All opinions are 100% mine.

Before the countdown there is such thing as – the list. It is important that I count down the special people on my shopping list so I won’t miss anyone. Whew, holidays are always tough especially in this tough economy. But the holidays is always about family and friends so I bet everyone wants to make sure that it will be a wonderful one worth remembering without hurting one’s budget.

Good thing I stumbled upon Pier 1Import’s website and found hundreds of stylish and affordable items they have for the holiday season from gifts to candles and fragrance… from dining to home furnishing, accents and décor. And more importantly, they also have seasonal items and special values that can save me a lot of dough. Check them out and you will be surprised how cheap the prices are but not the items because if you will ask me, they are definitely gorgeous.

This year, a new dinnerware set tops the list of my “must haves” for the holiday entertaining. And since I miss home, I want something with Asian touch like the Tranquil Dinnerware set which cost only $5-$6 a piece. This set will surely set peaceful mood at the dinner table and with the price like that… a peace in my pocketbook.

But since I am a busy person and the only time I really have in my hand is the time I spend in front of the computer, I bought most of my holiday gifts for the people I love online... at Pier 1 too. I got some nice fancy jewelries for my stepdaughters, mohair throw for my MIL, clock for my FIL, one of a kind toys for Brandon, a peacock rocker for my Sweetest and scented candles and oils for myself. And yes I also got some cute toys for Toys for Tots.

And speaking of toys do you know that during the months of November and December, you can support Toys for Tots by dropping off an unwrapped toy and/or making a cash donation at the register or you can spread the holiday cheer by liking Pier 1 Imports on Facebook.?For every new fan they get, they will donate $1 to Toys for Tots.

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…
