Not the Valentine-Kind-of-Guy

Happy Valentine's Day. What else should I say? It's just another ordinary day. Nothing significant except that I got Hubby a box of heart shape Dove chocolates. And last night, he got me 4 pieces of strawberries dipped in chocolates. Well, his daughter made it [I know] and he just asked a couple of pieces to give me. LOL
Last year, I got him a card which I just picked out from the grocery. This year, I didn't have the time to do it so... I am just writing this letter... which I bet he will not be able to read anyway. hahaha. But what the heck! Who knows? Miracles happen all the time.

So here goes.

My Dearest Sweetest,


Happy 4th Valentine's Day.


This is the 4th Valentine's Day since we became "WE". Nothing extra ordinary and I am not really expecting that you are going to do anything special today. I know you are not into it. Or shall I say, you are not the "Valentine-Kind-of-Guy" that is why it's no big deal. hahaha But that's okay. I understand. 
Well, you are not like any ordinary guy who will do everything to come up with everything "hearts" for VD. It's not that you don't care... you are just not affected by the whole commercial aspect of it. wink* It is not so "you". But then I want you to know that I just like the way you are. 
Deep inside I know you are thinking... you are wondering... and you are overwhelmed with the whole VD thingy. It just doesn't make sense why you need to show how much you love me on this particular day when you try your best to show how much you love me everyday. Are you surprised? Yes, I know how hard you try and I do appreciate it even if I am being mean to you sometimes. I am just being me. LOL. 
Well, just like any VD, we'll just celebrate it like any ordinary day. And don't feel bad if I got you something and you didn't get me anything.It's okay, your love for me is more precious than any diamonds that you already gave me [and planning to give me]. And don't worry because, you have next month to make it up for me. LOL.


Love you much,


Your Sweetie.




Happy Heart's Day, everyone. Keep on loving.

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…
