I am a Horrible Fan!

Yes, you read that right... I am a horrible fan!

I stopped watching the Super Bowl right after the halftime show simply because I don't want to experience the pain I experienced during the first 2 Super Bowls where the Patriots lost to the Giants. Trust me I was devastated and bawling when they lost to Giants 2 times in a row.
This time I was quite sure I jinxed the games so I decided to watched Criminal Minds reruns instead. Boy, I was happy to hear it from the 11pm News that the Patriots won. I may not experienced the excitement watching the game but I surely spared myself dying of heart attack last night.

I didn't grow up watching ball games. Back in the Philippines, I was never a big fan of basketball which is the No. 1 ballgame where people are rooting for. I wasn't just interested. I don't find it amusing and exciting.
But boy, when I moved here in the U.S. I turned into a Football Fan. And not just any other "fan". I am a die-hard New England Patriots Fan.
My Sweetest introduced me to Football. At first I was a little confused and not really into it. But when I realized how intense the game was, I was hooked. I would be watching every single game that the Patriots would be playing. (Note: I only watch games when the Patriots are in.)
And yes, I learned to know the players, my favorite of course is Tom Brady - the Quarterback and Rob Gronkoski. Then, I was sad when Wes Welker - a Veteran Wide Receiver left the Pats for the Broncos... when Hernandez was accused for murder... and when the Pats was recently involved in deflate-gate scandal. But more importantly, I know that Bill Belichick is one person who's smile is so precious.
I had to admit, I still don't know a lot about Football.  When I watch Football, I have to ask my Sweetest every now and then about the game's technicalities and bombard him with all the "WHYs  and the HOWs and the REALLYs" during the entire game. And even if he quickly dose off to "LaLaLand" before the 3rd quarter, I would stay awake to finish the game. BUT NOT LAST NIGHT! I cannot risk jinxing the game for the 3rd time. And I'm glad they WON!

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…
