Fiesta Months In the Philippines

If only I have a power, I would have fly now to the Philippines so that I will be there a couple of days before our community's fiesta. My fellow Pinays/Pinoys here know how fiesta is celebrated in the Philippines. In most cases, "lechon" or roast pig is never out in the table of most houses. Well, I don't know if it will still apply this year since it is very crisis in the Philippines.

As for us, I already sent a small contribution to our parents because my aunties and uncles are coming over so it means we need to prepare something. "Chip-in2x (hati-hati)" as what most of us calls it. Mama really persuades me to go home but I told her I really can't do it this year since it wasn't in the plan. We have planned to visit them at this time of the year next year. Hopefully, everything is good so this plan will be pursue.

Well, April and May months are fiestas months in the Philippines so I will expect a lot of my fellow Pinays/Pinoys will be talking on this matter.

Short Update After A Long Absence

Oh, I can't believe that I haven't been here in this blog for 4 days now. I felt guilty for not spending couple of minutes here. Actually, it goes with my other 2 blogs, Buzzing Around and Sweet Lullaby. I haven't been there also for around 2 days. Yes, I know, my absence here is longer than the other 2 blogs.

I am really out of time. We are crazy busy at work these days and my body sores so much from standing long hours that I need to lie down when I get home. I fell into a very long nap and usually woke up already around 9:00PM. If not for my husband waking me up to eat dinner, I may even sleep all the way in the morning, until my alarm went on.

It sounds crazy I know but it is true. Busy-ness and lazy-ness combined together makes the situation even worst. I know you know what I am talking about here... LOL

My Passion for Flowers

Wherever I go and if ever I am very tired, seeing flowers or being surrounded with flowers make my day brighter and lighter. I can't explain the wonderful feeling I feel every time I see flowers or be given one.

This is supposed to be a secret but I am sharing this. Receiving flowers or/with chocolates are one of my weaknesses. That is why, I guess (don't tell my husband, okay? hehehe), he was forced or obliged (hehehe) to send flowers and a couple of times with chocolates before when I was in the Philippines. hehehe... I made it clear to him before that I do lover flowers and I can't resist the charm of chocolates especially the ones with almonds... Darn, I do love those kinds of chocolates.... Hubby sometimes get on me for eating chocolates often... It's not healthy you know and not good for the weight... hahaha... winks :-)

Anyway, this flower was taken during our zoo trip.

Texans Facing Storm Aftermath

The severe thunderstorm that hits the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex left some of the cities dark and messy. Until now thousands of Texans don't have their electricity back yet. Some places are covered with trees that were either uprooted or cut trunks, electric posts and other mess from neighboring establishment.

As of now, the estimated cost of the damages has already reach 35 million dollars. To be specific, cities like Bedford, Plano and Fort Worth are the ones greatly affected by the devastating wind brought by a couple of tornado and severe thunderstorm.

Each cities greatly affected by that storm had been doing the clean-up process the day after the storm but it is not done yet as of today due to the big mess it has created. Electricity is believed to be back on weekends. Hopefully, it will....

Speaking From Deep Within

Wazz up everyone? Life is a bit busy here for me. Work is getting boring and very tiring. I am already on the hunt of new job. Hopefully, I can find one because I would really want to quit any moment. Sorry, if I am here again whining, venting or nagging. I have given these options as each of us here might classify this post differently from the others.

This is really one of the reasons why I love blogging. You have the place of your own to vent out, to cry loud or to just somewhat inform the people of your views on the hotta-hotta topics in the society. In addition to that, you also have the big chances to solicit ideas, suggestions and sympathy or empathy from people who have experience the same.

See how powerful words and blogging in these modern world? As for me, as long as I never step on someone shoes, I will always gladly express what I feel inside. I never hold back. Let it flow baby... Flaunt it if you have it dearest!!! LOL

Miss Beach Time with Mom

It is almost a year now that I haven't been to the shore; I certainly am missing the sea already. I miss walking in the sand bare foot. I miss soaking my feet with the water when I feel like not swimming yet. I miss building sand castle with my friends or cousins or my Mom. I miss those times that my Mom will bury me in the sand and help me get out from the sand when the water is almost near. After that we will go swimming because it was already high tide.

In most cases, my Mom and I went to the beach without bringing food from the house. Since it is just me and her, we just opted to buy bread, chips and soda and bring it in the shore. There was a store just across the white sand so there wasn't a problem. Going to beach is one of Mom and I bonding when I went spent a weekend in the house.

I was studying and working before in the city which is around 3 hours away by bus from my parents' house. I miss those times spent by me with my Mom. This is one of the reasons why the beach is very important to me. Mom and I spent a lot of wonderful hours there either telling my stories or hers. I can't wait to visit them!
