MR.Big Heart Of Mine

My husband & i was having fun the other day for goofing on the camera while our son took a nap.It is very seldom that we can have time for just two of us because our son is always on the way to get our attention.Anyway,we had a quite nice talk about our relationship,about our future,& our budget of course.It is really important for a couple to talk about your relationship once in a while to make your relationship even better & grow fonder.My husband is maybe not a best guy among but he's the best guy in my heart.He always listen to me,respect me,& love me for what i am,no buts & ifs, & no conditions.I always wonder what if we didn't met each other? What would my life be right now?I asked that to him one time,He just answered me,"It's all GOD's plan honey,before you even think of it,He has plans for us already".Oh my husband!I would really say i'm so lucky having my husband,HE is my MR.Big Heart!
God is really good to me eventhough i am not that good & obedient to HIS words.Anyway,here are the pictures that we took after our talk.
Hope you will enjoy viewing the pics guys.....

Superstitions About Full Moon


Superstitions.When i was just a little girl i used to hear the elders saying that if the moon is full there's some unwanted creatures will come out & bother the people.They were talking creatures like Manananggal,Aswang,Tikbalang,White Lady,& etc.Do you really believe this kind of creatures?Actually,I read some of the scriptures in the bible that it really tells that there are creatures that are going to harm us people but it will just depend on you if you're really scared & doesn't know how to handle the situation.Some people are very weak & scared that's why they will get possessed.I remember when i was just a little,lot of people were chasing something in the coconut tree trying to kill it.They said it's pretty big thing but they don't think it's a bird,it's black & it has big wings,they think it's half of the body of that manananggal.So for me it's pretty scary,that's why i stayed home that night & didn't want to be alone.
But right now that i'm grown up & knows the truth,full moon is just no meaning for me anymore.
It is just nice to look at it that glows so bright & so romantic when you have a date outside looking the big full moon,isn't it?
Well,when your kids will ask you about these kind of superstitions,what would you say to them?

Holiday with my Family

Today is a Memorial day.Last saturday i spent quality time with my very own family,just 3 of us,my husband,my son & me.We went to a big city to buy some stuff for our house needs & we stopped by too in the fabric store to buy fabrics that i need & some threads & etc.And after that, before we went home we went straight to a italian restaurant called "IDLE ISLE"just right here in downtown to have dinner.We are surprised because the busboy & the waiters are cops!They were raising fund for disabled people here in brigham city UTAH so they can buy wheelchairs & other stuff that the disabled would need.My son had fun talking to the cops while we had our dinner.They gave him pins for souvenir that we dined there & they are the waiters.So i kept that pins so my son would remember it when he grows up.Anyway,that's how we spent our holiday weekend.Very simple,yet very memorable for my son.

Here are some pics that i took during our dinner.
After that,i went online to check if there's messages in my mails.My husband took this pic while i was in the internet.Of course posing dayun si manang!Hehehehehe.
Happy Memorial Day Everybody!

Tag From Pepe

I'ved been tagged by Pepe,my online friend.This is all about 6 websites that i always visit everyday or so often.Now this are the 6 website that are part of me everyday everytime i am in the internet.......



FRIENDSTER-this is the very first website that i got crazy about.Especially before the friendster filtered their codes.I got very nice & neat profile,but today got lazy to update coz it's gettin' so complicated to update the codes.


YAHOO MAIL-Of course!Lots of people's been using this website to check emails & some stuff.Yahoo is very useful too for people abroad like me to get hold of my loveones back home.Yahoo messenger is one of it coz i can talk to my family online as if we are just talkin' face to face.No need to send letters no more like it used to be before(the only way of communications).


PREDICT BABY's SEX-I just love this website coz everytime i know somebody is expecting i just ask some lil' information about them & it will find out what will be the baby is.I would say that this website is 90% true because i been trying all the birthdates of my siblings & others,it does have correct results of their genders.


BLOGGERS-My recent blogsite of course that diverted my time & attention from friendster.Inday Ivy got me into this thing,i got hooked to it now & keep it checkin' everyday like what i used to do in my friendster & keep updating it.I love this blog thing coz i meet a lot of people that has the same hobby & same experiences as a mom,friends & etc.


BISDAK PLANET-Well same thing,Ivy was the one introduced me to this website.She said that she always have fun to read this website coz it's all Bisaya together talking like they are all neighbors.Well,i found that true!Now i am having fun to mingle people from this website coz they're kind & real to each other.They don't say good words just to please people,they always tells you the truth.


PHOTOBUCKET-I knew lots of people been using this website.It is very useful to save images & store your photos where you can edit it & do some stuff.I been using this website for a year now since i had my friendster.

Forgetful Husband


Lastnight my husband has to go to the store to buy some diapers for our son & some groceries too.But before that,he was watching tv so i keep reminding him to get going coz it's getting dark & i don't want him to walk in the dark street with our son.Smith's store is just around the block so it's not necessary to drive just to get there.When he finally got up from the couch to go,he went straight to our bedroom to get his wallet.I didn't really pay attention what he was doing coz i thought,in a munite he's gotta go with our son coz he already put the boy in his stroller.But later on,i realized he's looking for something that he couldn't find.So i asked him"What's wrong with you?You look so upset?"Then he stared at me & say"My wallet,I couldn't find it!"Then i said"It should be in the drawer where you used to put it"Then i looked in the drawer where he used to put his wallet but it wasn't there.So we looked for his wallet in every corner of the house,& he's starting to get very upset coz all the important stuff are in his wallet like his driver's license,his credit cards,his bank cards,& etc.I think weve'd been looking for his wallet for about 2 hrs. & it's starting to get dusk outside.He was really upset that he starts to yell.I told him,yelling is not helping the situation,He should be calm & try to think where did he last remember had his wallet with him.From sitting in the couch he stood & went outside,He checked in the car hoping it's in there,but unfortunately it wasn't there.He was now saying that he must have lost his wallet or dropped it somewhere from his rear pocket.Then he has to cancel our internet coz it's paid thru his credit card,& his credit card has to be reported to his bank.I did looked outside too....He was about to push the stroller then he saw something's in there in the stroller's pocket.THERE IT IS!the wallet that weve'd been looking for a couple of hours is just in our boy's stroller.So i asked him,"how did that wallet get in there?It walked by itself & get ready because the owner of that wallet is been watching tv?funny huh?"So he started to laughed.He hugged me & said,"I'm sorry,i must have put that there & didn't remember putting it there".I just said,"you've got to remember try to relax & think & don't get upset right away.After he got back from the store,he gave me a box of cookies(i know he tried to makeup on me).That silly husband, sometimes he's forgetful,i do too but i don't get upset,i have to think first & sit so i can remember it better & not bothered so much.

Year Of The Rooster


SIGNS OF THE ROOSTER


The Rooster is a flamboyant personality,feisty and obstinate.He/She is quite the extrovert who loves to strut his/her stuff and is proud of who he/she is.Outwardly confident,the Rooster is also a trustworthy,hardworking individual.He’ll/she'll tell it like it is with no qualms or reservations.Roosters are very loyal individuals.They do not like dishonesty or mockery of any sort.They are blunt,up front and honest people and expect those around them to be the same.Roosters are happiest when they are surrounded by others,at a party or just a social gathering.They even enjoy the spotlight and will exhibit their charisma and wit in a minute.This star quality can be overbearing,for a Rooster expects you to listen to him/her while he/she speaks and can become agitated if you don’t.Roosters do have a tendency to brag about themselves and their achievements and demand an attentive audience when doing so.

HEALTH


Roosters are typically fit people.They enjoy sports and active hobbies such as hiking and swimming.They don’t get sick very often because they tend to fight illness fairly well.However,when they do get ill, they usually bounce right back.Roosters can be a little high strung,suffering from dramatic mood swings and stress.

AT HOME WITH THE ROOSTER


As proud as they are of themselves,you can only imagine how they are about their homes.Roosters put a lot of effort into their homes as they reflect the Roosters assets and taste.They are very neat and clean and have everything in its own specific place.They make a chore out of cleaning out drawers and closets with a knack for rearranging them better and better each time they attempt it.This habit is enough to drive anyone berserk,but a Rooster’s family understands his/her need for a dramatic appearance.

THE ROOSTER AT WORK


Roosters are more motivated than most other Animal Signs,making their careers a priority in their lives.They are hard working,flexible individuals able to stick to the given tasks.They are generally successful individuals who reach the top of their chosen professions.

MONEY AND THE ROOSTER


An eye for detail means the Rooster is pretty good at handling his finances.He/She is able to give others good financial advice and can help get budgets under control. However,when it comes to his own finances,the Rooster is either or.He/She either spends it all or hoards it for a rainy day.

Garage Sale

The Garage Sale accross the street


When i woke up this morning my son is already awake & i saw him standing in our living room on top of the couch.He was looking outside,
seems like he got fascinated by the view outside.When he saw me behind him,He screamed"Mom!This!"He pointed outside,So he got me curious now what was going on outside.Then when i sat beside him,i saw that the house accross the street is having garage sale.I said to myself"Wow!i love going to garage sale because the stuffs are cheap & some are not been used yet it's just that they don't need it no more.So i talked to my son,that we're gonna have breakfast first & we'll take a bath then we'll go accross the street to look to that garage sale,see if we can see things that we are going to like & buy it.And when we're finally ready,we crossed the street & kinda look for things that we might need & my son might want something.I got some pants for him & shirts & a pyrex bowl & other stuff that cost me only 5 dollars all in all,aren't these cheap?That's what i'm saying,mostly things from garage sale are very cheap.Now take a look at this what my son got.It is so annoying coz there's music in it.It's a Barney musical happy birthday candle,& i feel so regret for opening that box coz when he heard the music he did liked it right away & keep pointing at it & whining.I tried to tell him that his birthday is over with already but he still want it.I said to myself "oh well what's 25 cents"but the thing is so annoying.Anyway he liked it & he smiled at me & said"thanks"oh that's all that matters to me,a big smile from my baby.
See the smile?I love that!

He wants to go back to that house


Do you like to go to garage sale too?i do!i love going to garage sale especially if it's just around the blocks.

HAPPY WEEKENDS EVERYONE!& GODBLESS!

The Other Side Of Me

I was a bit busy last couple of days ago that's why i haven't updated my blog coz my aunt & uncle from california came here for a short visit.So i have to clean the house totally & prepare something nice for them.Yesterday we had a big lunch in our backyard which i forgot to take pictures.We had grilled tulingan,una sa ginamos with sili & lemon as sawsawan,baked biko with condensed milk on the top as dessert & humba para cholesterol lol!.Aren't these things that i mentioned are delicious? yummmy!I bet you are now imagining these foods huh,aren't you? Anyway,we had fun in our backyard & talked a lil' bit & later after some friends came to see her again,for they haven't seen my aunt for 2 long years since she moved to LA California.She used to live here in Utah with her husband.My uncle that she's with was my other aunt's husband but my aunt died last september due to breast cancer,sad huh?But i know she's now happy coz she finally ended her sufferings.Well,back to the main topic,it was 6 pm when they decided to leave coz they're gonna go to their friends house & will stay there for couple of days coz they're gonna explore the beauty of Utah.My aunt asked me if i can go,i said i can't coz aside of dragging along my baby,i cannot take care of my hubby no more when he goes to work,he won't have nothing to eat.She said,"oh leave him alone once in a while,he can take care of himself pretty much"then i just replied that "now that i am his wife i will do my responsibilities & obligations as his wife".And she finally ended the conversation, She said that "your husband is so lucky".After they left,i started to have headache until now,maybe the pressure that i had while they were here,not pressure because they oblige me to do something,pressure because i want them to feel at home & tried my best to make them feel comfortable.I'm a worried brain woman,i worry things a lot,that's why i got this stupid headache now.My husband always tells me to relax & don't be worried brain lol!Oh,well so i decided to amuse myself by taking my own pictures before i went to bed,my husband was smiling at me said,"that's what i'm talking about!I wanna see my MATAMIS's smiling face!Not crumpled looking face"lol!So here's some pictures that i took trying to make myself calm & relax.




I'm being silly huh?Hope you guys like it.Enjoy viewing!

I finally made the decision to do this kind of thing.I was hesitant to make blogs before coz i'm thinking & a bit scared that readers might not like it.Well,hope that through my blogs,you guys will know me better & you'll probably shake your head for what you're about to know about my life story.........
I belong to a big family,i have 8 siblings,5 brothers & 3 sisters,i am 6th from the eldest,the youngest girl.We all born in mindanao southern part of philippines.My father used to be a manager in a logging company but he resigned i think when i was 4 yrs old,i couldn't really remember it very well.Anyway,my mother has several business like,importing shells,we have fishing boats,we have convenient store,we have live bands bar(my eldest bro & my 3rd sis was the singer),& we sell kilos of fishes.We belong in middle class as i thought.My mom was very busy then doing all those business without the help of my lazy father.My father was very good in PR(public relationship)he had lots of friends in politics,businessmen & some famous people in our place.But when it comes to his own family(his kids),he doesn't even know how to manage very well.I hate to say this but i hate my father so much eversince.He's not a type of father that every child will be proud of.I call him a dectator,very tight to us his children & one mistake whip right away.I grew up with bitterness & hatred.He doesn't even know how to appreciate things,he's always sees bad instead.No matter how i tried to make him please,still nothing good words will come out to his mouth,he'll just say"that's not good enough"or"you're a loser".Well eventhough my father is treated me like that,but i still have mom always fired me up,she's always there to cheer me up.I can still remember she always say"if you'll be in the top ten this year i'll buy you a dress,pair of shoes & hair ties".OMG!she's a good mother,she always inspires me.Thank GOD my mother is always there for me no matter how busy she is,she still have time for us her kids.Until i reached fourth grade,very early in the morning,my father woke up,he threw up blood maybe a bucketfull.We were wondering what's wrong with him then,so my mom took him to the doctor in cebu.They found out that he is having a serious illness,he is acute diabetic.From then on he always got sick so bad & there were times he couldn't get up & he gets wounds just suddenly appears & it'll take sometime to heal.From then on he's gettin' worse & worse.Deep inside me then was happiness,coz he couldn't hurt us anymore & use his belt buckle to whip us everytime we make mistakes.He's been sick for quite a while exactly 6 long years,& my mom took care of him & my mom's business went down real fast until it was totally gone coz she can't take care of it anymore & my sisters & our eldest brother flew to manila to find their own happiness as we say.So we,the younger ones just left with my mom & dad.Year 1993 when my mom sent me to my sister in manila coz she can't take care of us anymore she just want the lil' ones to be with her,i was in highschool then in 2nd year.My 3 younger brothers are still with my mom they were so little then.Ireally feel bad everytime i reminisce all these things coz i feel so sorry for my mom coz she did a very hard work for taking care of my younger siblings & to my sick dad.I was 3rd year when my dad died it was year 1996 in january.I was still in manila then,& my classmates knows the death of my father & they asked me if i'm goin' home,i just answered them simply"NO,why should i?We have preliminary examinations comin',& if i'll go home,is he gonna go back to life again?I don't think so!I'd rather stay here & take the exams,he's not been a good father to me anyway".I said to myself "at last the monster died,he can't hurt me anymore or do something bad".No tears fell from my eyes coz he died,in fact i was happy deep inside.Few months after he died,my mom called my sister,she wants me back.My mom moved to her birthplace a year before he died.So i went home & finished my last year in highschool there,then i graduated finally.Later that night of my graduation day,my mom talked to me,she said she can't let me proceed to college coz she doesn't have source of income to pay the tuitions & other fees in school.I got so upset coz i really wanted to finish my studies til' college,but then i realized that i couldn't do anything about it,so i decided to find a job instead,i don't wanna get stucked & do nothing.I was so young at the age of 17,but full of energy & life,willing to take the risk & face the challenge the real life of the world.My mom used to call me "FIGHTER"coz she always sees me fighting,not letting anybody step my feet,always ready to win the battle.Anyway,i got my very first job at the age of 17,i cheated my age in my birth certificate,not authenticated though,it is just a local municipality issue LOL!.In my workplace they always teased me "BATA" which means i'm just a "BABY" got lost trying to find my way.They used to tell me"Hoy bata,gisugo raka ug suka sa imong nanay noh unya nasaag ka diri sa kompanya?"hahaha!that was so funny.I worked there for nearly 5 years as i thought.Then i resigned due to the company is not working good no more.I went back to manila to find a job there,but instead a job,i found a guy that awaken my innocent feeling,he's lil' older than me but i find him very interesting.He's tall,dark but not handsome,just a simple looking guy.I fell in love with him,that was the very first time i fall for a guy,i hate guys so much then except my brothers coz i'm thinking guys are all alike,mean & users.We were committed for four long years & quite happy together.I really thought that he's gonna be the man that i'm goin' to marry.But i was wrong,until my aunt here from utah(got married to an american guy long time ago)went home for a funeral of my grampa & asked me if i have a boyfriend,i said yes,but unfortunately my family doesn't like him.Then my aunt said "well,i'll find a better one for you" i just replied her"don't bother,i'll work it out,they will like him soon".I didn't really take it seriously what my aunt did say to me i thought she was just kiddin' me.Then she went home again to visit her family,& she have something for me,a letter from an american guy,never know who he was but i still responded his letter.And after all that,he finally decided to come over to see me,& he did liked me,but in my mind was very confused & troubled.He's a good guy & loves me & that makes me think real hard to do the right thing.I made a very big decision in my life,i chose the american guy which is my husband now.I love my boyfriend but things are not gonna work fine with us,it hurts me so much that i left him & i broke his heart so bad too,he told me that he won't find any woman anymore,i will be the last woman in his life.Well,i am wishing for his happiness now,hope he can still find a right one for him.It is just that we're not really meant for each other & we're not destined to be together forever.As my present life's goin' ,i am very happy,contented & grateful for what i have now,no bitterness no hatred living in my heart anymore,i couldn't ask for anything more,GOD is been so good to me,i can tell that HE is always there for me,inspite of all the hardships in life that ive'd been through,i'm still standing here now & proud to be a woman,a daughter, a sister,a wife & a mother.I thank all these to HIM,HE guides me in the right path,HE always there when i'm weak & helpless.I hope you guys learned something from my story.All i can say is,just let things go on,move on,leave the past behind,& face the present & the future ahead of you.

My Tourist Guide

This morning my baby & i went to SHOPKO store coz i wanna buy him a "SPIDERMAN 3" shirts.I grabbed his stroller & put him right into it & we're on our way!I am getting ready for his party tomorrow that's the main reason why we went to that store so i can take a look what kind of presents we're gonna get for our dear young man.After that,we stopped by to a friend's house just a block away from ours,we spent our time there for a while & ate lunch.My baby had so much fun coz there's 2 kids out there too.They played & talked to each other as if they were pretending that they're gonna go for a ride each bike of theirs in the main street.These are the photos i took while they were playing:


I guess it was three in the afternoon when i decided to go home so my boy can take a nap coz i already can tell that he's pretty much worn out.When we we're on our way,i was gonna put him in his stroller but he told me "mom walk",so ok, i let him walk so he'll go right to sleep soon as we get home.And he did walk pretty good from my friends house until in our house.Here's some pictures i took while we're heading home:


I'm pretty sure my boy had so much fun for this day,he had a big day today!Right after i put him in his own bed,he slept like a log,poor boy!
He was really tired.I was looking at my son while he was sleeping ,i just laughed & i told myself,"What a proud mother i am to this adorable young prince of mine".......
Happy Mother's Day To All Proud Mothers!

Smart Woman

This is just a funny story that i received from my sister in law.Women are always smart,aren't we?Enjoy reading it!


Eleven people were hanging on the rope under the helicopter,ten men & one woman.The rope wasn't strong enough to carry them all,so they decided that one had to leave,because otherwise they were going all to fall.They weren't able to name that person,until the woman gave a very touching speech.She said that she would voluntarily let go of the rope, because, as a woman, she was used to giving up everything for her husband and kids, or for men in general, and was used to always making sacrifices with little in return.As soon as she finished her speech, all the men started clapping their hands.......


HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL THE MOTHERS IN THE WORLD!

My Goal That Must Accomplish

My youngest brother with my son


Lastnight i was talking to my mother on the phone,i told her about us here that we're doing great & happy as always.She was worried about me coz i have pain in my chest & back.But instead i diverted her attention by asking her if our youngest brother will go back to school coz he stopped last semister.His excuse is he cannot stand the lesson,it's too complicated for him & it's really hard to study those kind of stuff,but actually he can really do it,he just wanted a break for a while.I didn't chose that course for him though,it's him who chose it for himself.So,my mother handed the phone to my youngest brother & we talked if he wants to continue this school year,& he said he will coz he realized that boredom is driving him nuts!He is always in the house & nothing to do,unlike being in college always in school & it's fun as well coz he's gonna see his classmates & friends.I talked to him heart to heart,telling him how much he means to me that's why i want him to finish his course so he can find a better job in the future,& how lucky he is coz he doesn't have to undergo hardships when it comes to money coz i & my husband will take care of it.He promised that he's gonna finish it & he won't stopped again not even for a semister.I keep reminding him over & over again how frustrated i was to proceed college before but because our mother doesn't have a job to support my needs if i get to college.So i decided to find a job instead,& i did!i had my very first job at the age of 17 at the electronics company.But anyway,that's my big Goal in life,to see my 2 younger brothers finish their studies,i didn't asked them anything more or oblige them to anything to pay me for their studies,
that's all i want for them is to finish & i'll be happy enough.I told them too that soon as i get my citizenship i will petition our mother right away so the 3 younger bros.will follow right after her hopefully.I want them to experience what i have here in america,i want them to feel that they are very special to me & i love them with all my heart.

Dreams

Do you dream everytime you go to sleep?I myself,i do.Different kinds of dreams every night or even if i just take a nap during afternoon.
Sometimes i dreamed like i am in highschool again,weird isn't it?I was hoping that i could finish my studies until college but unfortunately it didn't happened due to financial shortage.But what's funny is i keep dreaming about my highschool days in that certain school & that certain classroom,& lastnight i dreamed again but i don't recognize the teacher,it's a guy teacher,& he's kinda terror teacher but i find him funny coz he's fat,he's wearing suspender & his big tummy is hangin' out in his pants,lol! i can't forget what he looks like in my dream.He is very strick as a teacher,he wants every student to pay attention to him,Oh well all teachers are like that though,but not all are strick like the teacher in my dream.So,i researched what does dream means,then i found this dream moods that can tell why i am dreaming such things like this.Here's the explainations why:

High School

To dream about high school, refers to the bounds and friendships that you made while you were in high school. What spiritual lessons have you learned? The dream may also be telling you that you need to start preparing for the real world.To dream that you have to repeat high school, suggests that you are doubting your accomplishments and the goals that you have already completed. You feel that you may not be measuring up to the expectation of others. The dream may occur because some recent situation may have awakened old anxieties and insecurities.

Teacher

To see your teacher (past or present) in your dream, suggests that you are seeking some advice, guidance, or knowledge. You are heading into a new path in life and ready to learn by example or from a past experience. Consider your own personal experiences with that particular teacher. What subject was taught? Alternatively, it may relate to issues with authority and seeking approval. You may going through a situation in your waking life where you feel that you are being treated like a student or in which you feel you are being put to a test.


Hmmm,i wonder if this is true. But honestly,i do agree of what it said,coz i undergone anxieties & insecurities recently.Good thing i found this website that can read dream meanings,i understand now what my dream meant to say.What's in your dream by the way?

Feathered Scarfs

A lot of friends say that i should start a business coz i am very good in crafting,sewing & cross stitching.But i just answered them that i don't think i'm gonna do it coz i'm gonna lost my quality time with my family especially with my son,Coz for sure i'm gonna focus my time to those things.I did those things for past time or hobbies,not for business.I really love making things that's worth to keep,like scarfs during winter & nice to see the different colors in it.Some of these scarfs i already gave to my friends,& they love it coz it's soft & gentle in their skin.I learned how to make scarf from my husband's niece,she likes to make crafts too,that's why we were very compatible as friends coz we have something in common.These pictures below are the scarfs i made:




For sure it looks nice to your eyes isn't it?I love to touch them & put around my neck during winter coz it help makes me feel warm when i'm outside.What color do you like?I like the red one better.
I love making scarfs & perhaphs i will keep making these things until i get old.
