The other side of my brain is telling me not to wake up, go back to sleep for few more hours and send a message to my supervisor that I can’t go to work, I can hear the heavy pouring of rain outside and that makes me want to go back to bed and rest. But in reality, I’m here at work and chilling’ on my table on a lunch break. It’s still raining outside and I’m having a heavy heart that if it continue till late afternoon, I will be having a hard time going home again! Oh my, I don’t want to think I’m stepping on the dirty flood waters again and my clothes soaking wet. Last night, I wake up having a pain feeling on my left ear and I jumped on my medicine drops my EENT doctor prescribed to me the last time I complained about it. It helps a lot. That’s one problem I always encountered during rainy season and I really don’t like it.
It’s Friday and I’m supposed to do some grocery shopping after work. I just wish I still have the energy to stop by at SM or Puregold to shop later.
Typhoon Falcon caught us all by surprise today. With no storm signal raised within Metro Manila and classes of students was suspended later this afternoon after they were all gone to school, we experienced heavy rains and winds just when most of the employees and college students are about to go home. The local weather bureau announced late at night that Manila is under signal no. 1 and classes in elementary and high school is suspended tomorrow not because of the storm signal but because of many flooded areas rising up to chest deep.
Before I take off at the FX taxi I’m riding, it’s already raining cats and dogs.I thought to myself, this is not good.No strong umbrella and jacket can last to this kind of rain and winds. I saw how flooded the streets and roads going home and I’m all wet from head to toe walking to our house.I immediately take a warm shower because I’m afraid to catch cold or fever, not this time that baby Nathan sleeps beside us.
I took the picture below while riding the jeep going home.We’re passing through the main road that becomes a virtual water world.
I hope the rain will stop tomorrow.I like it when it’s not that hot, but not the heavy rains please.
When my eldest sister decided that it’s time to go back home and resigned in her job abroad, we know she needed to maximize her savings. She’s been working in other countries for so many years and just felt that she wanted to be with her family.She kept on planning for any business opportunities and or alternate work she can apply knowing how hard living nowadays without any regular job. She dreamed of becoming rich someday and I said she can do that if she knows how to negotiate her way to success.
My sister is quite shy in person and she’s really having a hard time making her way to other people.She’s always hesitating in making the first move but I believe with some proper training she can be successful and full of confidence even when not working abroad.We really wanted her to just stay here with us because we tend to worry on many things when one is away from the family and besides she not getting younger anymore and she needs to think to should focus more on her future.We really hope she can make it this time because she deserves to have all the best in her life now.We will all be here for her and pray for her success.
Its daddy’s day all of the world today and greetings are flooding from various networking sites.When hubby washed and clean baby Nathan’s crib, our house help disassembled the crib without remembering how to assemble it again.So after a mind boggling hours of doing it all over again, hubby finally gave up and Nathan sleeps between us for the first time. When baby Nathan wakes up at 4am, I can see the look on his eyes that he’s wondering why he end up sleeping between his Dad and Mom, but I take that opportunity to let him wake his Daddy up by tapping his face with his small hands and finally Daddy open his eyes and we greeted him Happy Father’s Day!
I asked my Mom to cook something special for Papa since we can’t go there in our old house because of heavy rains.I planned to bring along Nathan in a small dinner treat for hubby but it’s raining hard so we end up going to Mall of Asia with just the two of us. I asked hubby where he wants to eat and he said he wants to eat blue marlin belly and so we dine in at Gerry’s Grill.This is the day when you appreciate how great the world is when you think of all the hard works our Dad's were doing for his family.And this is the day that we look back that after all these hard works they deserve all the glory in life for being a one tough guy.
My friend encountered a big problem and she was so worried she talked to me about it on the phone in the wee hours of the morning.Her problem, she failed to file her income tax return on time because she was out in the country for some time and before she knew it, the deadline ends.Now she’s afraid she might pay for the high penalties.I told her there must be some other way to pull it through, she just have to think of any possibilities not to pay any incurring penalties for not paying in time.
Now she needs to find a solution. A friend helps her to do the job and she will need a tax extension form 2010.She needs to do it quickly because she’s about to travel again in other country.She said it is highly recommended and guaranteed.She’s worrying a lot before but now everything will be alright.
I love to look at my mini compact mirror when I feel bored.It makes me feel better just by fixing my hair and check on some unwanted spots on my face.But lately, I noticed a couple of white hair on my head and it made me realize that I’m really getting old (ha-ha!) but I know it’s not the basis of being old because I knew people having some white hairs on their early age.But it’s my first time seeing white on my hair because they kept on saying every time I went to salon that I had a natural jet black hair.So I knew it’s because I’m not getting younger anymore and I have to admit that in few years more, white hairs will be visible in my head (awww!).
There’s a myth that when you sleep while your hair is wet or when you pony your hair just after taking a bath, you will have white hair on your early age but I don’t think it’s true. I think it’s more on hereditary thing. But above all, I don’t care if I have white hairs now, it doesn’t matter, I’m happy with who I am right now, white hair or not.
We had this picture taken while celebrating our house help’s 21st birthday and hubby bought a tripod for my camera so I didn’t let this moments passed by without capturing these happy faces in my SLR camera.Mico left to study in Cavite and the next time he’ll visit us will be on baby Nathan’s first birthday celebration in October.And Nathan will be walking straight by then so it will surely be a surprise for them.
Well, I’m a little melancholic these past few days because of my some family issues but seeing my baby’s progress every day chases all the blues away, his little cute smile and angelic laugh made you realize that life’s all worth it.So, just be happy and trust God.Everything will be alright and every one will be happy again (just like in the pictures). Aja, aja!! :)
It was the 7th birthday party of a colleague’s daughter that baby Nathan attended last May 28.He’s very first birthday party, and he’s really looking good in his cowboy outfit.The party was at The Creamery in Mall of Asia and I’m having a second thought before that because it’s raining and I’m thinking baby Nathan might get sick.But we went there 3 hours before the party time so we have time to buy gift for Denise.
The foods were great and the games were educational, the first I have seen from the hundreds of children party I attended.But the most of all, baby Nathan is learning to experience many things around him.And we think that he’s really enjoying his time at the mall.
the cute stuffed toys souvenir and party cup cakes :)

I’m having a heavy heart today but I know being down and sad won’t help solve the problem.It will just make things worse and I’ll start blaming them for what they became today.I’m tough; at least I know I am.Because if I’m not, I don’t know how will I ever help them.But anyways, at the end of the day, I know I will pull it through.I asked one sign to lighten up my heart, and it came an hour before I went home from work, a pizza delivery.And eating with your colleague while laughing at some jokes chase the blues away even for a meantime.
I always believe that with God’s help I can even move the mountains.I always pray for guidance because I fear that when I’m angry I tend to say things that I will regret later.So, I asked God to give me tons of patience and strength.I only want to live in this world happy and contented, with family and friends to be with as I venture in this so called life. I will always live one day at a time.I will always be thankful for having a wonderful husband and a handsome son.No problems will take me down.God will always lead the way.
We are supposed to watch a movie today, but we cancelled it because of a problem that keeps on coming back no matter I we tried to forget and ignored.I just hope it will leave us alone and in peace.It may be impossible but nothing is impossible with God. That sealed it all.
With the ever changing weather nowadays, it is not possible that most of us are getting sick and not feeling well. You really can’t predict what will happen to you anytime soon and you wouldn’t let it caught you off guard. My father needs a constant medical attention since he’s been getting older as years passed by and Medicare Supplement Insurance will help us through with his entire laboratory, doctor’s fee and other medical expenses.We want an insurance that doesn’t require medical exams for you to be able to acquire it especially now that my father is having problems on his breathing.
Good thing that it is now available in every big stateso you wouldn’t have that much problem with regards with your Medicare.My sisters make sure that it was well covered and we will have no problems in using it in case of emergency.We decided to get one for my father because that’s our first priority because we can’t say if the time comes and we don’t have anything to covered the expenses.I don’t want to be in that position so we better be sure with my dad’s Medicare. we encourage my father to read and join AARP, it can help us know some life saving tips and a better way to deal with our everyday living.
My father now has positive outlook in life. I just hope everything will turn out right.
