49 is the NEW 29

Time flies so quickly. I was a little preoccupied for the past couple of days with work and I totally forgot that my special day was coming. Yeah, I was having a little Alzheimer mode lately. 
So, I turned 29th a couple of days ago. There was no big celebration. It just so happened that there was no school that Friday so it felt really special that my birthday seemed like a holiday. But my Sweetest has to work.

So after I made him breakfast I drove to Medy's where my special breakfast was waiting. My BFF prepared a hearty breakfast and lunch for me. We hanged out the whole day and just watched Pinoy movies all day.

And yes, she even gave me a bracelet with my birth stone. It's indeed nice to have a friend. I love you BFF. Thanks for spending my special day with me.

After the last Ai Ai Delas Alas movie ended, I headed home where I found my Sweetest already home busy working on his new project (maple syrup making) while waiting for me because we planned to eat out that day instead of having a "to go".

We went to our favorite Chinese Restaurant and watched a movie after. Yeah, I watched 3 movies in one day. Hey, it was my birthday so don't judge me! LOL
The following day, I received a package from my dear cousin Joey in California with my ultimate comfort food - Red Ribbon  Mamon and  Ensaymada plus a scarf and gloves set and a bottle of perfume. And most importantly, I found out that another package from the Philippines is on its way to Maine. Thanks a bunch baby brother Japol. Seems that the Nikon D3000 that you gave me as early birthday present is not enough. Wink**

I have not celebrated my birthday since I moved here in Maine like I used to when I was in the Philippines because I don't now how to organize my own birthday. Or should I? And not a lot of people really know or maybe remember my birthday but I am happy that there are some important people who do care and remember my birthday. And for that I am happy to have them in my life. That was indeed one heck of a celebration.

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…
