Golf, anyone?

I have always wondered why golf enthusiasts enjoy the sport so much.  I guess it's probably because I do not know anyone who plays it -- except for the computer version of the game :)

For golf enthusiasts who love not just playing the game but also watching it, you can try visiting Ticket America to see the latest golf events.

Paranoia

Aside from people going to the cemetery during  the All Saints' and All Souls' Day holidays, another news that became a headline, was that of a 20-year old fresh graduate from UST, who was stabbed to death 49 times bu tricycle drivers in her subdivision.  For others, it was just another headline, but for me it was different.  I never knew the girl personally.  But I live in the same subdivision.

When I first read the news on Twitter, the night of October 31, there were no details yet on the incident.  But there was something in the news that made me feel scared and worried.  Until the morning of November 1, I kept on checking the news, but details were still not available...then came the evening news.  

When we went home from the cemetery, I noticed that the GMA 7 News van was in our subdivision.  And right then and there, I have confirmed my suspicions that the girl was from the same area.  I waited for the evening news, and there, our subdivision was mentioned.  The details on what happened were also released by the investigators/police.  It was just so brutal and inhumane.

The morning of November 2, it was televised that the 2 suspects have been arrested.  It should've been a relief for me.  But the fear is still there.  Fear that there might be someone else who can do such thing.  Fear that on the night the crime happened, it could've been me...or Jake or any of my loved ones taking the same route when going home.  There are a lot of tricycle drivers in our subdivision and I think a lot of them are not from the area.  It makes me really paranoid to go home and ride a tricycle alone, for fear of that incident happening again.  It made me think of the future -- should we allow our baby to commute all by herself in a not so safe environment?  It made me think - should we look for a new place?  But then I know that these things can happen anywhere, even in the exclusive subdivisions.  But still, I can't seem to relax.

I just hope that justice will be served for Cyrish Magalang and that her family be comforted especially in times of grief.  For the suspects, I hope they truly pay for what they did and repent for their sins.

I don't know when I can get over this paranoia.  But for sure, it will be a really long time for me to be able to relax when riding a tricycle alone.

Turning 3...

My baby is turning 3 tomorrow...

I'm feeling a mixture of emotions right now.  I'm sad because she seems to be growing up too fast.  I'm afraid because of the bigger responsibility that is coming our way.  I'm worried of what the future will bring her.  But mostly I'm happy because she's growing up to be a fine, young kid.

I have never really focused on teaching her practical things, but she seems to learn it by herself! She learned how to eat on her own when she turned 1.  She learned to potty train herself when she was just 2 years and a few months old and without me teaching her how.  When we talk to her, it's as if we are talking to a 5 year old kid because of all the things that come out of her mouth.  And to add to that, she no longer baby talks unlike some kids her age.

She even knows how to console me when I'm sad.  She simply hugs and kisses me and says, "wag ka na sad, nandito naman ako", in a sweet and gentle voice.  Now, who wouldn't love this kid?

Looking back 3 years ago when I gave birth, I didn't even think that she will grow up to be like this.  What I wanted was just to keep her safe, healthy and be able to provide for her needs.  It's a plus that she is smart, bibo, and really malambing.  There are times when she really tests my patience, but she's just a kid.  And I love her to pieces,

Advance Happy 3rd Birthday my baby girl...you'll always be my baby.  I hope you'll grow up to be a fine, nice lady.  I love you and I will always stand by your side no matter what it takes.

Unproductive

I've had a really unproductive day. I hate it when my day starts with a meeting. I hope to have a better day tomorrow.

Thank you (again)!!

I celebrated my birthday last June 9. This is now officially the last year in my 20s. As a belated birthday gift, my husband gave me a new phone! I was torn between getting an iphone or a samsung phone but in the end Jake decided that the iPhone is better for me. Thanks for this present hon! I love you!!!

Jenika's 1st Day in School

I was waiting for this day since we enrolled our little girl last May.  I even filed for a leave to ensure that I will accompany her on her 1st day.  We've decided to let her go to school this early since we want to take advantage of the fact that at this stage her mind still works like a sponge, absorbing lots of things quickly.

A lot may roll their eyes and even comment why we are sending her this early to school.  For me, the answer is simple.  Education is something parents' should invest on.  And at this stage, toddlers still think that school is all about fun and play.  So, why not take that as an opportunity to immerse your child to learning?

Anyway...

The day started not so great for my little girl.  She woke up with a "sumpong", probably due to the fact that she have been crying her eyes out last night.

I let her watch TV and play for a few minutes and told her to eat before taking a bath.  It's a good thing my mom cooked her favorite "sinigang".  After eating, we took a bath together and I dressed her up.  It took us about an hour to get ready.

We finally arrived in school 10 minutes earlier.  There were already kids waiting outside.  When the teacher called the kids inside, I accompanied Jenika to the door and told her that we will wait for her outside. Amazingly, she didn't cry! Yay! It was a good thing because when she had her trial class last summer, she cried before going inside.

The class lasted for an hour, since it was the first day.  The teacher went outside and gave us some details on what happened inside the class.

My little girl after her 1st day session 
I was so happy for my little girl and a bit sad at the same time.  My baby is growing up fast and soon, she will be on her own.  I just wish she would grow up to be a good girl.

Chemical Peeling

Last Saturday I had a follow-up checkup with my new dermatologist, Dra. Evangeline Handog.  I'm having a really bad case of acne which started when I was pregnant with Kelly.

Dra. Handog is the 2nd dermatologist i've consulted with.  The first one was not that effective and I didn't really like the way she handled my check-ups.  I spent a total of almost 7000Php for medications but have not seen any result.

I've decided to consult with Dra. Handog and she immediately prescribed a different set of topical and oral medicines.  On my 2nd visit, she told me that she will treat my face with chemical peeling, which was quite scary considering it's my first time to do such.

She asked me to wash my face with cetaphil and right after she started the treatment. boy, did that sting! i felt like my whole face was burning! after a few secs, she asked me to rinse and immediately apply ice compress to ease the burning sensation.

I'm on the 3rd day and my face has started peeling.  i just wish my skin will be better after my sessions with her.  mind you, it's getting more and more expensive!  i spent 4000Php just for that session!

Will blog again once i see the results :)

School Season

Summer is almost over and school season is about to begin. I'm getting pretty excited because my baby Kelly will start her schooling this June! Yay!  Some might say that she's too young to go to school and I admit that she is!  The reason why I want her to start schooling this early is because I want to prepare her for big school.  I don't want her to get overwhelmed with school and kids.  I'm hoping that she'd enjoy going to school as much as I did! :)

Can't wait to buy her first school shoes!

Whitney Houston...Rest in Peace

Whitney Houston died February 11, 2012 at the age of 49.  I remember singing a lot of her songs.  She may not be my favorite musical artist but she surely contributed a lot to the music industry.

Rest in Peace, Whitney.

sick :(

i've been feeling sick for 3 days now.  haven't filed for a leave from work, not because my boss won't let me but because i just can't leave work just like that.  i've always been like that. that's why i envy and sometimes get irritated with people who can afford to take a leave from work even if they know that they are leaving behind tons of work.  i'm just like that. don't hate me.

anyway, i just hope to feel better soon. and kelly too. :(

Blank

My mind is blank.  It's just the start of the year and I already feel exhausted.  Maybe because I haven't had the chance to have a decent vacation last December.  Maybe because a lot of work came in and I didn't have the chance to feel the Christmas spirit.

I need motivation.  I need a jumpstart.

Pay Per Post!

an euphonious is for life, not just xmas!

Two - Zero - One - Two

Happy New Year! It's 2012...the year that the world would end, or so the Mayans say.  Do you believe that the world would end this year, December 21, 2012 to be exact?  I don't actually believe in that prophecy.  I have my faith intact and only God can decide when the world would end.

But if it is true, how would you live your life knowing that come December 22, you will no longer see the light of day?

Happy New Year! Let's all enjoy this year, shall we?
