sometimes when you least expect it, your dreams come true sometimes when you think life kinda sucks, someone comes along who reminds you---- of the many things to be grateful for, of the possibilities life bring, of that which "can be" and more
All married couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love. Good battle is objective and honest--never vicious or cruel. Good battle is healthy and constructive, and brings to a marriage the principle of equal partnership.
Ann Landers Says Truth Is Stranger..., 1968
though at times i'm crANKy, demanding and insist on you following my commands with a smile----you still make me happy

“I have learned that only two things are necessary to keep one's wife happy. First, let her think she's having her own way. And second, let her have it.” -Lyndon B. Johnson
whew! finally remembered by password in blogger!! hee hee
after weeks on end, maybe months since i last posted i've finally made one today.....sort of....
wedding preps are slowly, but surely getting along....the invitations will probably be given out by the 2nd week of sept (hopefully)
the caterers, cakes, photographers, and videographers are booked....the tickets bought na
little details are still being discussed: host, entertainment during the reception, stuff....
anyway, just got back from a quick bakasyon with xtian and che and hubby-to-be
went to macau and hk for four days....macau was fun and exciting went to the usuals, venetian hotel, grand lisboa, macau tower, fisherman's wharf, maritime museum, ah ma temple.....
hk disneyland was ok (was expecting big rides, but alas, only for kiddies)......mong kok night market was ok, the prices are unreasonable so only bought a few pasalubongs
bought a few books....at least now my collection of joostein garner books are almost completed....just finished orange girl (sweet), through the glass, darkly (sad) and now i'm reading the ringmaster's daughter (something am is interested to read after me)
It's been while since I last posted, several things have happened:
*taught English for 3 months to foreign students in a language center. In the beginning it was ok and fun, after awhile you feel "stupid" and feel like having a "nosebleed". But it haD it's moments, especially with the kids. Love them!!! They were such personalities and much much better students than the adults.
* Just finished learning French 1 in a language center here in Iloilo. The schedule was M-W-F, and if you're working like we do, it can be exhausting. But the new friends we have acquired and the fabulous teacher Mademoiselle Melissa has made it all worthwhile. Next move...French2
* We are now preparing the wedding, although A.M. still has to be confirmed by third week of may, which I, the ever dutiful girlet will also take hehehe
* Now making plans, although everything is informal, about several trips on certain places in the coming months.
*Try (ahem) to work out starting Monday. I knew I was gaining weight lately, but there's nothing fabulous in seeing a picture of your fat face. It's almost depressing. Oh well, nothing to do next but to get a good work out.
* We're thinking of buying a new SLR cam, a very nice and expensive one. A.M. says we'll probably get my EOS first before we get his more expensive NIKON. Anyway, after paying for the wedding, we can buy all the gadgets and stuff we want. Naks! Mayaman kunwari!
* I have several dozen books bought from Diliman, Powerbooks, National and several other bookstores around town....many I have read, but a lot more I haven't. Anyway, my last read was....... The One Minute Manager. Pretty effective I think.
* Saw more movies lately, but I still wish for more.
*I'm now working with A.M.'s company in their purchasing department, specifically importation. It entails trips to LOBOK, PPA, Customs and paperworks galore. I'' bring my camera around next time.
* Now loving the sound of PUPIL.
THINGS TO DO:
-look around for stuff for our Filipiniana-inspired wedding
Your past life diagnosis: I don't know how you feel about it, but you were female in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern Yugoslavia around the year 750. Your profession was that of a entertainer, musician, poet or temple-dancer. Your brief psychological profile in your past life: You were a sane, practical person, a materialist with no spiritual consciousness. Your simple wisdom helped the weaker and the poor. The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation: Your lesson is to conquer jealousy and anger in yourself and then in those who will select you as their guide. You should understand that these weaknesses are caused by fear and self-regret. Do you remember now?
i don't. hahaha none of those professions seem to suit me now...oh well, past is past. haha ;-)
In the coming months I'm sure the wedding preparations would start getting on my nerves and make me wonder why I said yes in the first place ;-p I have never been the type to envision or dream about my own wedding, but I knew ever since I had boobs (ahem) that my honeymoon would be better if not more fabulous than my wedding day. Hon? hahahaha
It's January now, soon enough results will be out. Some of the girls are scared of it, I'm not. If it's meant for you, then so be it. If not, the universe has a grander thing prepared for you. I believe that.
FOR YOU: My dearest C.C./B.B./P.P.
Each day you are life's grand gift to me. The realization that love is indeed one's destiny; that life has become more fuller, and things more realized than it has ever been because you are holding my hand. You have thanked me before for saying yes, in the beginning and with the proposal---but know that I too have a lot to be thankful for. They say we do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone---we find it with one another....I have found mine with you. I love you Sen. Mwah!
I buy pens because I like having a new pen, regardless of whether I've used up the old ones or not. Whenever I feel like it, I go searching for that one cute pen to make me happy. Weird.
I love booksales, and Powerbooks and Fully-booked. I have no qualms burning my credit card for that one. None!
I love photo-blogs, blogs, and ravings of whoever. I love taking photos, edit them, but rarely uploads them on the net. I collect lomos, coffee table books, travel magazines and a lot more books than my mother can take it.
When the mood strikes me, I like coloring my books.heeee I want to get lost in Spain, Japan, Italy and France (again).
