Happy 7th Father's Day to you Honey!!!

We appreciate the sacrifices you have to endure working miles far from us. I am in awe with your integrity, hardwork, patience, and strength. You never scarce us with care and affection by pouring unconditional love in this family. You made it possible that distance won't never at all build a wall between us. I wanna thank you for the endless confidence you're entrusting me, though I failed innumerous times with my decisions, you've always been there to catch my every slip, and never get tired of doing such over and over and over. For being the brightest light that guides me during my darkest and lowest hour. The truth is, I can never thank you enough Honey, for being such a wonderful father and husband to us. We are tremendously blessed by God for sharing with us such a beautiful person like you. You are a blessing, not only to your family, but for all the people around you. Happy Father's Day!!!

Ultimate Love

My First Paper Scrap

This thing was done for Kuya Jett's science project. They had to make an art work pertaining to the previously celebrated Valentines day. So it is basically about Love-Love-Love. It took me like 4hours to finish everything from conceptualizing to wrapping it in a plastic cover. This thing is way more expensive than its web counterpart which is digital scrapbooking. It is time dominating as well coz once you fixed it, you can never just easily move it around unlike doing it in my computer program PhotoImpact. Well, for the rewarding part. I hope Jett got a grade of flying color for this one. Coz as a matter of fact, more than its love theme, it was made out of love.

Get Better Soon Son

Jett has been feverish for the past two days. Thank GOD his burning up vanished late afternoon today. His peak of high temperature went up to 40C on dawn last Tuesday. He was chilling, and was looking for his Dad, and was telling me he was scared. I told him it's okay Mommy will stay beside you. He was complaining about his neck, his eyes and tummy were painful. I barely shut my eye that day to check my son from time to time. I totally felt relieved that now he is already okay.

It is terrifying to have fever nowadays due to A(H1N1) pandemic scare. I also learned last Monday from Teacher Ann, his adviser, that three of Jett's fellow Kinder students from other section were also absent due to high temperature. I asked his pediatrician, Dra. Mendoza if I need to rush him to the hospital that time to see if Jett was showing signs of swine flu. She told me that swine flu, like a normal flu, has to have symptoms of high fever, cough and colds, poor appetite, and had recent travel or exposure with people of such disease. Since Jett had only fever with no cough and colds, she advised me to observe first his condition, just stay home and make him rest, and give paracetamol on regular schedule.

I hope tomorrow if there are already classes (today was suspended due to typhoon Feria), Jett will resume his schooling and catch-up for last Tuesday's lessons.

Our Dream Modern House

Three more months to tick off the calendar and we will finally set foot to what I define, the consummation of my husband's hardwork and sacrifices working in foreign countries, away from his family. And my fair share of sleepless nights and exhausting days researching and trying to learn the new architectural trend of modern houses not only in the Philippines, but also of our neighboring Southeast Asian countries. This house is adopted according to Singapore and Malaysian architecture to be more specific.

The whole concept of this house, starting from its floor plan design, the arrangement of the rooms, the color of its facade, the accent color of the exterior, were all emanates from me (ehem!). Maybe if I'm familiar on how to use the auto-cadd, I might also have done it myself, printed it in blueprint, and just look for an architect to sign it, hahaha!

One attestation that I was completely succumbed in house designing when I started putting myself into this project, was my perfect attendance from all of the interior design/home improvement/construction exhibits assembled in SMX Convention Center and World Trade Center for the past two years. Together with my kids, and few instances with my hubby, I bring them along with me on these events. Even when we were in Kuala Lumpur last April, we were present during their Home Dec 09 Exhibition held in Kuala Lumpur Convention Center, wherein I found a very lovely and durable laminated flooring. Which I learned later on, that that brand is not available here in Manila. I should have bought some boxes already if I only knew. The said laminated flooring is a clever reproduction of a real wood. It is a good buy and not pricey when converted to peso, compared to Kronotex that we can easily find in home depots all over the Philippines. The difference is the former is made from Malaysia, and the latter is made from Germany.

We only got one shot, and this might be the first and the last time that we gonna build a house, so we might as well give it our best foot forward putting our hands on this dream house.

The house is bright and airy, with lots of glasses, wood, and steel as one of the major compositions of an ultra-modern home. Natural lights are prominent all over the house, you need not to turn-on your lights all throughout the daytime. It is like putting the outdoors in. Water feature in the living room is one of the focal points of the house, which is very visible as you enter the main door. We all know that the soothing sound of the water gives calming effect to people, and it is good in fengshui as well :), just don't turn it off to avoid the risk of dengue, hahaha!

Oh well, we still have to wait for a while until we see the product of our sweat and yes, even tears. Tears of stress, joy, and in one point along the way, disappointment (which I relay in another story) :) .

Have a blessed abode everyone!!!

Happy Father's Day Honey!

Hi Honey! Before you press that play button above, kindly turn off first the soundtrack of my slideshow on my previous post "Propose Interior and Exterior Design" (sorry :) ). I no longer have the option to edit it as I was trying to figure out how to remove the sounds,I don't know why.

Anyway, this little presentation from us is nothing new for you I know. But I'm pretty sure and according to Rene Mariano :), it will come as a surprise to you because you least expect this, right?! It's been a while since I last did anything similar to this. You know that I'm too occupied about the construction of our house, and it consumes so much of my time more than the physical, emotional and mental as well. But I'm back, and will never say die, hahaha! I should have done a simpler plan of resurfacing that element of surprise, but again, knowing me :), I took a little over more complicated course of giving it a bang.

I was running out of words as you noticed in the video :) . First, the usually fighting kids on the background are destructive :). Second, It was spontaneous, and I just thought about it only last Friday. I in fact finally came up with a more precise concept a few minutes before we shoot our takes. Post production was a little bit time eater also coz it was my first encounter with the Windows Movie Maker, hahaha.

But on top of that, it came out something ...mmmm .... touchy ... and funny.

Happy Father's Day Honey!

Congratulations Honey!

free glitter text and family website at

In an email forwarded to me by my husband last June 17, it says ....

" Dear Bobby,

Please be advised that the board of directors of Powercom PNG Ltd have noted your commitment as well as the good performance exhibited at work to date and have decided to award the agreed USDx,xxx net per month remuneration rather than wait for the completion of the 3 months probationary period as per the signed agreement.

The board hopes that you will continue with your very satisfactory work performance as well as your attitudes towards work.

If you have any query regarding the calculation of your pay or concern regarding the terms and conditions of your employment, I will be more than happy to discuss it with you when I return to POM on Tuesday.


I've said this before, and I'm sure I gonna say it a million times more in the future, that I am a fan when it comes to my husband's dedication and hardwork towards his profession. Its been only a month since he started working for Powercom/Eltech Engineering in Papua New Guinea as Operations Manager. I'm more than elated that his good intention to share his knowledge and talent with this company, and how he's been thriving hard to be one of the catalysts of this already on-top and successful institution, is now acknowledged by his bosses this early. You much deserve the recognition Honey! I love you so much and no word can fit in how proud we are of you being the man of the family. Take care always!

Propose Interior and Exterior Design

These 3D rendered photos are the propose designs of Architect Jun Astoveza for the facade, and designers Sherlyn Shih and Jing Balmes for the interior. However, there would be some modifications of the above offered layout during the actual construction of the house. About 50% I think will be altered. It really is hard to come up with the perfect arrangement. But of course, if you are the owner and your whole family will utilize the house, you might as well aim to see it in its nearly perfect look. And besides, this is our first time to build our very own dream house, and probably the last, so why not give it all our best shot on its aesthetics. So to my designers, bring it on guys!!! I wanna see moooree!!!

United Nations Day 2008

Congratulations Sweety! We've never been prouder! This is your first award as a student. BEST IN COSTUME for Kinder pupils. Yes, it is non-academic, and I custom made the dress which is originally meant for a girl, hahaha, but it is more than enough. We are so happy to see you receiving an award on stage. My heart is jumping for joy. This is the first time your Dad and your baby brother Jedd see you performing live, and you never fail us! The dance is cool! We always anticipate what you gonna do on these occasions, and we're happy to see how you really participate and step-up with each dance number. You did it with a bang son! I love you sweety! We are so proud of you!

Thanks GOD! The Groundbreaking...

The long wait is over ... in GOD's grace and will ... in Honey's hardwork and perseverance...
Finally... the much awaited GROUNDBREAKING...

Holding on to the power of prayer and faith to GOD, we are hoping to move

Our First Ever Getaway as Foursome in CEBU!!!

Taxing it is, but the ultimate fun is irreplaceable!!! This is our first ever out of town travel as four after I gave birth to baby Jedd last year. We've been waiting for this day after our last getaway in Boracay last 2006, minus of course baby Jedd. We stayed in Crown Regency Cebu for 4 days and 3 nights. We actually received this free accommodation after attending a 90-minute presentation from Club Ultima who's been selling club shares among those who can afford to buy it, coz well, the price is not cheap, hehe! But since club share is a good investment (synonymous in the concept of stock market), we ventured to it.

The hotel that we stayed in, is totally class A in terms of amenities, service, and mouth-watering food. We in fact enjoyed the hotel place, more than we enjoyed Cebu, hahaha! We splashed to their edgy swimming pool with jacuzzi, shower falls, and mini swimming track for those who love to swim. The kids really had a great time. And for myself, how can I forget to try their massage service, which I forgot to remember what it is termed, hehe, but certainly not swedish nor thai, but uses aroma oil as well, and concentrated more at my stressed back area. Love it!

Well, about Cebu... The beach line in Mactan is unclean (I'm sorry to Cebuanos but this is the undeniable truth), with sharp objects you can feel at the sole of your feet. Definitely, not a water-fun experience for our kids, especially myself. It is so yucky! Unlike in Boracay that offers a very clean, white and fine sand walk moment. However, the jetski and boat ride is cool!

Furthermore, we find people in Cebu displeasing, referring to cab drivers, boat ride middlemen, service crew in SUTUKIL (a well-known open air restaurant of seafoods). We can really feel that they are after the money that we will shell out as tourists, and not to show kindness and honesty as local tenants. That is why it is understandable, that some foreign visitors like Koreans, are very mean to them, because of their money first attitude. It's a good thing we are not Koreans, hahaha! We just try to understand that their lives are less fortunate in terms of livelihood, and have not enough education to comprehend that tourism is a service-oriented word, and not realizing that theirs is a place, people from busy world are longing to go back time and time again. But with their behavior, I don't wanna go back to Cebu if we will stay not in Crown Regency Cebu, hehehe.

Mmmm.. in scale of 1-5, I'll give 5 stars for the absolute HOTEL fun experience. and 2 stars for the CEBU tour around. But at the end of the day, I think the most important thing is that, we went there to relax, unwind, grasp a new environment, forget the not so good recent memories, not think about the house and other people, and most especially bond together as a family. Which I certainly believe really did happen. It's refreshing to have an escape once in a while... or often... hehe!

My Cute Little Kulit Kiddos

Jett has been a waggish child since then. And one of his waggishness, is to make faces in front of the camera. But what made me giggle more is baby Jedd's reaction. Upon glimpsing at the photos, you will think that he is starting to get scared. But knowing this curious kitten, he is in fact discerning, observing, and absorbing his Kuya Jett's every act. So he will be a carbon copy next time. They are the best buddies, Hahaha! These two angels are the happiest part of our life.
