Chocolate-frosted or Chocolate-coated Valentine's Day

WARNING: To all wives out there... Never underestimate what your husbands are capable of doing.
Two weeks ago, my Sweetest and I were watching TV when the new Valentine's Day Dunkin Donut commercial came on. Right before our eyes a chocolate frosted heart-shaped donut with nut sprinkles flashed like a teasing goddess. And right that instance, my Sweetest told me... "that's what you are getting this Valentine's Day!" And I was like - "Ah Ok."

Well, it was better than last year. Because last year. he didn't get me anything because he forgot it was Valentine's day. LOL.

FAST FORWARD to Valentine's Day 2012, Lunch Time, PTC Room, Waterboro Elementary School: I was having lunch with my colleagues when the Secretary came into the room with a box of flower. It was for the 3rd Grader Teacher whose birthday is today. The rest of us were so jealous. I could tell. Or maybe it was just me.
After a minute the Secretary came back in with another box and announced... "Well, someone didn't want to get outdone here," and she put the box down in front of me. I was like... "Is this for me?" And she said..."Well, I think you are the only person who got that name." So I put my glasses on and read. It was indeed for me.
The "return address" read San Diego, Ca so I was wondering who could it be. I have friends in SD but I had no clue why any of them will send me this box. So I scrutinized then box and it said there - Perishable. Once opened content disappear immediately.
It was from a box of chocolate-coated strawberries from Sheri's Berries... and the card inside read - Love you always Sweetie, Love Mike.

And I can't believe I was expecting chocolate-frosted donuts!

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…
