My Brother's Graduation...Finally!

I can't imagine and I can't still believe my brother Jessie is already a Bachelor of Science in Hotel Restaurant and Management graduate! Yes indeed! He graduated just this morning with Me at Philippine International Convention Center =)

If you only knew how he surpass every trials that he had been through. He is the so called "black sheep" of the family. He is very naughty, very "pasaway", I thought he will become "tambay, lasenggero and yosi kadiri" guy forever (though he's still yosi kadiri and sometimes lasenggero till now, lols.), I was losing my hope for him before. He loses his track and I guess that's because we have no father to guide and look after him. I can't blame him for being like that before and I am very disappointed with myself as an eldest among 4 siblings for letting those things happen to him. Especially when he almost got killed. He was stubbed by his so called "friend", he was hospitalized for almost 2 months and I thought that was his end already. I am so scared losing another family member. Thank God he survived. I really believe God has given him another chance and so he did. One day, few months after he was finally checked out from the hospital, he told me he wants to go back to school. He's no longer ashamed of his age (he doesn't want to go back to school before because of his age) praise God!
I am a working college student that time, my salary is not that big but I know I can support my brother in God's help. He enrolled as 2nd year high school, I tried every motivation I could give him. I bought him nice bags, nice notebooks and pens. In God's grace, he finished until college! Thanks to my loving husband who's been very kind and supportive. He's my strength. He's giving me more courage to strive harder for my family. And now I can give my 100% attention to my kids and husband. Hope he could get a good job in the future so he could able to help our pamangkins. My other brother wants to go back to school also...hope he could pursue his dreams. I am still willing to help but this time, I should focus on my own family. Thank you Lord for your blessings and guidance all the time.
Congratulations my dear brother Jessie! I'm sure wherever our Papa is now, I'm sure he's so happy and proud!

Couple's Corner : Sacrifice for Loveones

Rodliz’s Nest

I was thinking what I should do today...I know there's a meme every wednesday but I was confused though there were only three meme's I am joining ahahah! "Ulyanin na talaga!"
Anyways I'm here humahabol! ahahahha =)) What a topic! This could make my mind think ehehehe that's rare! Ahahahhah!
Kidding aside...what sacrifices can I say for my loveones? I can say being a mom I sacrificed all my gimicks. Same with being a WIFE. How come wives cannot just go out if hubby is at home. For example when hubby is on leave unexpectedly, I can't just go out even I already do have plans. Tendencies were, I have to cancel my appointment just to be with him on his leave. Gosh! That's a sacrifice for me. We, as women, as mom, as wife has a lot of things to sacrifice though Men sacrificing too. They were limiting their time with their barkadas, they can't just spent their money because they do have responsibilities even though they want to buy a new pants or shoes. My husband is like that...What else did I sacrificed? I am not "maluho" when I was single so I didn't sacrifice any material thingy. Actually I started to go out, gimiks,shopping just when I started to earn. I can't think of any sacrifices right now coz I am contented and happy being with my husband.

Pagudpod Summer Vacation

Hays! My mind wants to blow at the moment. I was planning for a vacation with my family to relax, bond and enjoy but then I was having a hard time doing it. I should relax after this! Gosh! It's hard to plan when your resources is limited. We we're suppose to rent a self driven car but most of the cars we're sooo damn expensive! Ahahahah! We we're just going to rent a car there in Laoag so we could go visit some tourists spots in Paoay, Batac then Pagudpod.I am excited and nervous coz I was the one making our itinerary and I feel so FAILED because I didn't plan it well. We came up planning to stay in Pagudpod for 2 days after our tour but I haven't reserve any rooms for us to stay yet. Most of the resort were all fully booked on that day! Waaaaaah!! Where are we going to sleep if ever? Some people I have talked to said there were "home stay" there. These are actually house for rent. Hope we could get one on thursday. We're like "chance passenger" ahahahah!! =P Well, let's just see how are we going to spend our vacation..Goodluck! =P

Zoobic Safari Family Adventure

Two weeks ago, a week after our Tagaytay get away, we're in ZOobic Safari! Yeah we spent another weekend out of town. Not because we planned to go there, the truth is, we just had a chance to use MIL's (mother in law) innova. Hahahaha! MIL was out of town that weekend so we borrowed her car. We're suppose to go only in Ecopark in Quezon City but I suggested visiting Zoobic Safari now that we have chance of using the car. Zoobic Safari is a very fun zoo! This is the most entertaining and biggest zoo I've ever seen yet. I love the Animal shows they're rendering to all their visitors before having their tour. Their specialty were Tigers. There are lots of tigers there. They were sooo big! We as adults enjoyed every part of the zoo. I personally love the tiger safari where you can roam around the tiger's place. You were inside the cage instead animals in it. We were in a cage while inside the tiger's territory. I am just a bit frustrated because we didn't buy chicken to feed the tigers. Tigers didn't come near us because we don't have food to attract them. We were just looking on the other group feeding the tigers. That is so sad, we envy them so much but too late for they are not allowing us to buy anymore. We we're very concern at first of 200 pesos worth of chicken not knowing that it might brought happiness to our kids. I am frustrated...hope the next time we go there we will buy chicken already! Hays. Anyways..hope you guys buy chicken if you're going to visit these tigers.
At the end of the day, they have another set of entertainment...the ANIMAL PARADE where there are each kingdom's representative. The animals were all great and trained. They were lovely. I love to go back there sometime. Hope i could bring my nieces and nephew there too.

Couple's Corner : (First Entry) Bedtime Habits

Rodliz’s Nest

Whew! Good thing about blog hopping is that you discover new things. Look at this meme...just in time for me who's very in love with her hubby! Hahahahha!!! Imagine we're married for almost 5 years and the last time I got jealous was during our boyfriend and girlfriend relationship and imagine I was having this kind of feeling again this year. Gosh I feel like going back to sweet nothing moments hahaha!
Anyways, this week's topic is interesting. Bedtime Habits huh? My dirty mind is imagining too much. Ahahahahha! Actually we don't have much bonding moments together alone since kids and Us were in one room together. We have to beds, isang mataas isang mababa. I used to sleep sa ibaba...putting my kids to bed muna before I transfer beside my husband. Before that, we're playing with the kids since hubby is at work the whole day, he has to give some time with our kids first. I don't wanna go to bed with him without taking a bath (girlscout laging handa! lols). Our sleeping suits were just simple. I am wearing shorts and sleeveless while him was just wearing boxers. I prefer to sleep wearing sleeveless coz I love hugging him feeling his body =)'s warm kasi lamigin ako ahahahh! =) I also love to use his arm as my pillow.
Okay that's all for now!!! ahahahha more more more loving loving next week!!!

Girls Talk : Sexiest Part of My Body

Whoa!!! It's getting hot in here....Are you asking which part of my body is the sexiest? Aw!

I don't actually know what part ahhaha! But if I am going to base it on other's feedback..I guess it's my 'Braso" (what is it in english again? ehhehe). My hubby find it very attractive as well as for other people maybe that's why I love to wear sleeveless blouse. I was very flattered when I posted my pic here last week wearing swim suit and you (those who commented) find my legs sexy. Actually this was the first time someone complimented my legs though I am not considering it sexy. Haha! Thanks anyway! Maybe because that was my first time to show legs or perhaps my legs were just photogenic haha! ANyways...hope you find my "braso" sexy too! ahahha =)

To All The People I Love....

I am so sleepy now, it's already 11:15 in the evening and I don't wanna sleep yet. As I've said I am sleepy but I am afraid to go to sleep for I am having a chest pain. It's different among chest pain I've ever experienced. It's in the middle of my chest and it's aching. I can still breath don't worry. I justwanna blog it whatever happens atleast I have written it here. Last Saturday night I had this feeling again ....I feel like I'm gonna see the sun rise no more. I don't know and I can't explain why I am feeling that way. I don't have any sickness/diseases (as far as I know) but I am so afraid to die yet. I can't sleep that night...I am thinking of things that might happen if I die that night. Just like today....same feeling I got. It's been 14 minutes and my chest is still in pain. Everybody is sleeping already except for EThan my son coz he can't sleep if I am not beside him. I don't wanna bother anybody. I know God will do something in case anything happens. Right now I have to stay awake first coz I don't wanna sleep having this chest pain. My father died sleeping, same with my Lola(dad's mom)...I don't wanna die without saying goodbye to my love ones but I don't wanna die in pain too! Oh please God please heal this chest pain now so I can sleep and have a great morning tomorrow...
I love my husband, I love my kids Ishi and EThan, I love my Mom, my brothers and sister and their kids...I love my friends...I love every people that touches my life. I love you all most especially my husband!

This is my first time to watch online video of Manny Pacquiao. Hubby and I suppose to watch it in Cinemas unfortunately we can't go out both because we don't have yaya today =(
Anyways thanks to Bambie's friend who shared links where you can watch Pacman - Clottey's fight. Watching it in real time is exciting! Even it's like watching a pirated CD! Hahahah! I enjoyed it very much. I dunno if hubby watched it too coz he's not home during that time. He's playing basketball and had a lunch out with his friends. This is memorable to me! I will never forget this fight!

Girls Talk (My First Entry): Fleshy Flesh!

Hi Everybody!!! Do you mind if I join! This meme is kinda exciting! I've been gone for almost 2 months in blogosphere and I guess I've missed so much fun! So here I am again....

Just in time when pehpot told me about this meme...the theme is FLESH! oHhh wow! That is a cute theme! Some girls really love to show some flesh for we sometimes think it's a self esteem booster. I, myself thinking that way. I feel beautiful when I am wearing sleeveless or backless but never tried showing my cleavage coz I don't have one! ahahhahah! =P I've been dreaming of wearing skirts, or dress above the knee and swim suit....but I never had a gut to do it except for wearing a swim suit. At my age, and knowing that I already have two kids, I never ever imagined I can still wear a swim suit. But believe it or not! I wore it just last month! Here's my pic....

(kinda blurry...buti nalang!)

This is my first time to wear swim suit and everybody was reacting when they saw it in my facebook account =P Hope it's not that masagwa. Happy girls talk everyone!

Early Summer Outing

Any plans for summer? We are planning to go to Ilocos this summer in God's permission...if we have enough resources. We are planning to stay in a hotel (just for experience) alone. Alone meaning we wanted to travel just the four of us, me, hubby and the two kids. Hope we could make it. We're wishing we could borrow a car so we could use it going to Vigan then Laoag then Pagudpud, Batac etc. We wanted to see the tourists spots in Laoag, my home for almost 7 years but never had a chance to visit those places.
Actually we already have our early summer outing last February, we we're just invited by my mom in law with her office mates. We went to Pico de Loro Beach and Country Club in Batangas and it's really beautiful! It's not fully developed yet but there are lots if things you can do already like kayaking, boating, snorkeling, swimming of course. Some amenities were still in progress for now, maybe the next time we go there again, one day will never be enough for more adventure.
Here's some of our photos during our stay......

For more photos just open my scrapbook HERE.

And now that I have my PC for almost a month now, I am still not in the mood to blog until I heard a very controversy contest in blogosphere. I was invited so many times with so many people and I forgot who they are anymore to join this contest but since I am not in the mood to blog, I wasn't able to create one. Last week I received another invitation but I wasn't able to do it again. And today, just a few minutes ago, GENEBEI convinced me to join. You know why I was convinced?

Tagaytay Weekend Getaway

Just got home from Tagaytay....not in the plan, just came out in my mind since hubby wants to bring the kids somewhere and I suggested tagaytay =)
It was fun! My kids really did enjoy it! I also enjoyed it very much even the two hour travel is fun especially if you're looking at the surroundings after SLEX.
We arrived there exactly for lunch, the we rented 2 horses for an hour.
My kiddos love it! They love it especially when the horse is running fast. My kids are very adventurous! They love trying new things. Next with horse back riding is CABLE Car.
My kids enjoyed it too! I thought they'll be scared but NO! They are more excited than us and they were complaining because they wanted more! Gosh! I was very amazed with my kids. I know hubby and I were both adventurous but I never thought that in their age they could able to do such things already =)
I love it! I really love it! Hope we could try more new and fun things in the future! =)

Done with my Driving Lesson

I am back again! Done with so many things....done with driving lesson but not yet with seminars. I availed 5 hour driving lesson and after that I thought I can drive already. But the last time I handled a stirring wheel with my hubby, I almost hit a car! What the heck!? I didn't feel any tense that day, I felt frustration instead...I feel like I haven't learned enough! I know driving is a hard thing to do...but I wanted to learn. I wanted to impress my husband that time coz I know I can already drive somehow but to my disappointment that incident happened! I am so sad. One thing I hate to admit is that, related person is hard to deal with if he's the one teaching you. First is that driving lesson cars has two breaks, whenever there's an incident like this the instructor can easily hit the break. Another thing about related person teaching you is that he will not hesitate to get mad at you, that thing will never happen in driving school. I know I still have some mistakes but what do you expect from a first timer? I am still in the stage of "get use to it" I am still setting my mind with those pedals, gears and everything! Sigh! Hope I could still practice driving, I don't wanna pay for driving school anymore. I hope I could meet someone that could help me practice =)

My Birthday!

Our Wedding Anniversary
