Dear God,
I tried to deny the fact that grandpa is already gone and is with you now. I thought someday soon when I come back home he will be excited, there waiting for me at the door with his arms wide open welcoming me wearing a sweet smile.
Just like what happened two years ago...
I never thought that time would be the last time... We talked, we listened and we laughed... We reminisced and we shared the good old stories together...
I told him, that was one of the best moments of my life. Glad I did.
I think I was one of his lucky grandchildren because I was able to witness how caring and protective grandpa he was. I never saw him got angry, I swear! What always reminds me were those smiles and his big, big heart.
At the age of 5, great memories started with him as far as I can remember... but the space won't be enough to enumerate it all. Those times are stored in my brain and printed in my heart anyway. Grandpa and our good times together will be treasured and cherished forever…

Itsy Bitsy Spider

 The Itsy Bitsy Spider crawled up the water spout. Down came the rain, and washed the spider out. Out came the sun, and dried up all the rain, And the Itsy Bitsy Spider went up the spout again.
Repeat 10x
Ang ganda ng panahon kahapon, mga 20 degrees kaya naman imbes na magmukmok sa loob ng bahay dahil mag-isa at wala si hubby, lumabas ako sa may veranda at naupo sa ilalim ng matinding sikat ni haring araw. Ilang minuto lang, dahil sa sarap ng pagkakaupo ko, di ko namalayan ako'y naluto at naging tutong - negra! Hong itim ko na, grrrr! Pumunta ako sa may garden dun sa may lilim. Maya't maya pa'y nakakita ako ng malaking orb-web!  Nilapitan ko ito at sinipat ko kung nasaan si Itsy Bitsy Spider, wala sya...  Siguro'y naglakwatsa o kaya'y may usapan silang magtatagpo ng kanyang Honey Bee.. Finally, heto na sya! Ngunit... ano itong aking nakikita? Di nga ba't sya'y buntis? Aba, aba.. Itsy Bitsy Spider, you *itch! Naunahan mo pa aketch!  Sya na nga po, si Itsy Bitsy Sp…

Malapit na ang kaarawan ng matalik kong kaibigan, gusto ko sana syang sorpresahin pero di ko alam paano...

Ang hirap, ang layo ko naman kasi...


Nung April 7 this year, birthday ko, sya yung gumawa ng effort na pasayahin at sorpresahin ako...

Nagchoreograph ng sayaw at nagcoach din ng birthday song para sa akin...

Nag-organize ng games, nagshopping at nagbigay regalo sa mga bata...

Pinasyal at nagpakain pa sa Jollibee...

Sya pa kumuha ng mga litrato pati gumawa pa ng videos...

Nahirapan at napuyat sa pag-upload...

Ang effort grabe, gugol pati sa oras...

Nagpagawa pa ng cake (wala sa plano) na ikinadagdag tuwa ko...

Nasorpresa talaga ako...

Kaya ngayon, ako naman ang gustong magbigay ng sorpresa sa kanya...

Ngunit paano nga ba?

Wala ako maisip...


Gusto ko ring maging masaya best friend ko sa birthday nya!


Habang trying hard ako mag-isip, kinig muna ako ng song na ito, "My Wish" ng Rascal Flatts.

Bukod sa ganda ng melodiya, ay napaka-meaningful din nya.

Para sa akin masaya ang…

 Yey, got an extra chest drawer for my clothes! I've been wanting this for a long time and finally I got this yesterday. Now, I don't need boxes to put all my extra clothes and other stuff 'coz I can already arrange and organize it in just one place.
We bought it in Jysk, it's a shop where you can find a lot of different home furnitures and accents.
That's one place I love to shop but since I was accompanied by my husband, I wasn't able to roam around the store to do at least some window shopping.
He told me, I should know what and where I wanted to buy stuff. Then he could drive me there but no window shopping!  Argh...
Anyway, since it was quiet far to take a bus going there and the thing was heavy, I asked him to drive and accompany me.
10 mins later, we were already at the cashier booth to pay but it tooook a long time for us to get the package. Outside the store, there we were waiting under the scorching heat of the sun! If I knew it would took us fo…

Kwentong Komento

May kanya-kanya tayong paboritong blogger o kaya naman ay mga blog posts mula sa mga batikan na mga blogero dito sa Pilipinas, nakakaantig, nakakatuwa, nakakamangha, nakakainspire at higit sa lahat nakakarelate tayo at nakakapulutan natin ng aral. Pero ngayong pagkakataon na ito, nais kong ibahagi ang aking mga paboritong komento. Kanino galing? Siempre walang iba, mula sa akin. Love my own e no? LOL Bakit ko favorite kamo? Sa dahilan kasi na "Good vibes" sa akin yung kwento matapos kong basahin (with emotions yan ha)o kaya yung tipong nagtanong lang, tapos sinimulan ko ng magsulat tas tuloy-tuloy na hanggang makabuo ako ng ilang mga pangungusap hanggang sa naging isang talata o higit pa. At ito pa, may feeling ako (may feeling talaga e no) na may punto rin naman ako sa mga sinusulat ko. Isa pa, mas nakakatuwang magkomento ng napakalalim na tagalog. Nakaka-proud maging Pinoy, pramis! Simulan ko na. Mula sa mga iniidolo kong mga blogista ng taon, sa blog na pinamagatang: Pay…

Sobrang ganda talaga ng weather namin dito sa Larvik these past few weeks, umaabot halos 26 degrees sa init, kung tutuusin ay maituturing na isa sa pinakatotoong summer na naranasan ko sa buong anim na taong pamamalagi ko dito sa Norge. Naaalala ko nung dumating ako dito at unang summer ko, kulog at kidlat ang naghello then sumunod ang pagbuhos ng napakalakas na ulan na syang yumakap bilang pagwelcome sa akin. Saklap naman anlamig ng welcome sa akin no? Literally, anlamig talaga ng summer dito noong 2007 pagdating ko kaya naman habang naka-singlet sila, ako naka-turtle neck na pinatungan pa ng jacket. Cool diba? Alam nyo tuwing summer, napaka-busy talaga ng lola nyo. Bukod sa makulay ang aking calendar app (puno ng colorful working shifts), ay sinisiguro ko din na maenjoy ko ang summer before and after ng shift ko katulad ng pagtulog,pag-attend ng family reunions, pagswimming sa beach, go on road trips, mini-cruise, hotel staycations, magbabad sa pool, sauna at ang pinaka-dabest ang …

Dati ko pa iniisip na magkaroon ng app ang aking blog, as an android user kasi mas madali sa akin yung isang pindot nalang ng app, all at once mag-aappear na yung needed details and stuff na gusto kong makita o mabasa thru internet kesa gumamit ng mobile internet surfing browser na kumakain ng oras.

Di naman sa tinamaan ako ng katam syndrome, pero isipin mo like sa situation ko sa trabaho wala kaming time magdutdot ng telepono (kesehodang naka-iPhone 5, HTC One o Samsung Galaxy 4 kapa, wapakels) kaya ang pinaka-convenient na time lang ay kapag kunyari nag CR at tuwing break time (30 mins. break, 7-8 hour duty). Isang halimbawa ng app na gusto ko ay ang internet bank ko, aba'y pagkaimportante lalo na kapag payday? Isang pindot lang alam mo ng pumasok na ang sweldo at kung magkano (sabay taas ng kamay, "Magpapaburger ako! O kaya gora kaagad sa Mcdo after duty at i-treat ang self hihi.

Kaya naman ang inyong lingkod ay nakahanap ng solusyon, sa tulong ni pareng Google, nakagawa …

Monthly Updates - March & April

Alam ko late na to pero pagpasensyahan nyo na guys ha, yung iba sigurado ako alam naman nila ang dahilan kung bakit di ako nakapag-update. Yung iba naman, wag nyo na akong piliting mag-explain ha, sa madaling salita ay sabaw at tinamad ako hehe.

Anyway, heto ang outline ng mga konting kaganapan at pagtitipon sa loob ng dalawang buwan kasama ng mga kamag-anak at malalapit na kaibigan dito sa Norge.

 March 09 - Umattend kami ni hubby ng ika-2nd birthday ni Nora sa Askim, apo ng 2nd cousin ko. Bale family reunion na rin naming magkakamag-anak ito dahil isa o dalawang beses lang kami magkita-kita sa isang taon.





March 17 - 65th birthday ni mama. Siempre nag-isip ng bonggang surprise party at naglaan ng malaking halaga para dito. Pero dahil na-stress si sis sa Pinas, dina naging surprise kasi sinabi nya, at siempre ayaw ng birthday celebrant ng ganun kaya ang ending nagswimming nalang sila para daw tipid. Itong mga taong to grasya na umaayaw pa. Kung ako ang tutuntong ng ganyang kahabang edad…

It's a very tough time for me now, I have my mom who's in hospital suffering from pain both in her kidneys and then my husband who after his knee operation, was sent here at home. Hearing their voices uttering with so much pain and agony really kills inside me.... They say, I need not to worry, it's easy to say because they don't feel the pain, they don't hear their sighs and ohs caused by so much pain. I feel their pain too because both of them are my family, I'm connected with both of them no matter the distance, so automatically no matter how serious their sickness or not, I'll worry. God heal them... I love them so dearly!

Thanks kuya Jay of Jay's Journey for this inspirational song.. perfect! Thank you guys for the messages and well wishes for my mom and husband, I appreciate it a lot that you will include them in your prayers. Thank you so much! God bless you.

I hate worrying too much... I hate losing hope... I hate being weak... I hate the feeling of being sad. So I'm trying to be strong... Thinking positive... Creating or reminiscing happy thoughts... Keeping my faith. But these sufferings are all coming to me now! And I just can't fight against it! Ugh, I hate being so emotional right now, please help? I won't blame anyone even God just because things aren't going well nowadays... God has been my Saviour and my Best of my best friends ever since... Times like this, it's only Him I can turn to I know. I met Him since I was a young kid... It was my mom who introduced Him to me... I was thin and a sickly child then, poor me. I grew up having a few chosen friends but when everyone left me, I felt God's presence with me... I knew deep in my heart, God lifted me up when I was down... He held my hand when He knew I was almost giving up... He showed me the right way when He knew I was confused which path to follow thro…

What I Got On My Birthday

Image
Hello peeps, pasensya na medyo na-delay ako ng pagpost hindi kasi ako nakapaglaan ng time after nung birthday ko kasi naging busy ako sa pag-aasikaso kay hubby at pag-eempake ng mga gagamitin nya while nasa hospital sya. Then kahapon ang aga pa nilang umalis, sinundo sya ng taxi buti nalang nagkataon na best friend nya yung nagmamaneho kaya good vibes.

Sobrang thankful ako dyan sa best friend nya, ambait grabe. Nagka-problema kami noon sa sasakyan, pinahiram nya yung kotse nya ng two weeks since taxi yung minamaneho nya araw-araw. Then sinuli namin with full tank ng gasoline nung naayos sasakyan namin. Tapos last week lang nagluko yung cellphone ni hubby, dina nagrerespond yung touch screen so I had to lend him my old phone na ginagamit ko recently sa globe roaming sim ko. Then bumili pa si best friend nya ng phone para ipahiram kay hubby ko, bait noh? 

Update: Tagumpay at maayos ang operasyon nya sa tuhod kanina medyo natagalan lang kasi imbes na 3 hours lang ay inabot ito ng 5 hours.…

JAM!

It's my birthday!
It's JAM's day!
Time check 8:00 PM of April 7, 2013

Kakaalis lang ng bisita, daughter ni hubby at family nya dumaan dito sa bahay para i-greet lang ako. Siempre na-stress ang bida, nakakahiya kasi hindi ako nagbake ng cake buti nalang madali at mabilis lang ang paggawa ng waffles kaya yun solb ang problema.

Sinadya ko talaga actually na hindi maghanda kasi nagtitipid ako, ni hindi nga ako nang-imbita ng mga kaibigan dito, ang sama ko noh? Next week kasi 5 or more days na wala si hubby kasi ooperahan sa tuhod nya kaya if ever lumabas o magwork ako lalo sa gabi siguradong gagastos ako ng malaki sa taxi palang, kung sa araw okay lang naman magbus.

Anyway, isa pang dahilan kung bakit di ako naghanda ng bongga ngayong kaarawan ko ay dahil inilaan ko ang pera para sa pagbibigay tuwa at sigla sa mga bata. Kung babalikan natin ang sinabi ko last year sa isang tweet, wish kong i-treat ang mga batang nasa lansangan sa mismong kaarawan ko.

Hindi ito natupad pero parang…
