Goodbye 2008, welcome 2009!

Happy new year to everyone!

May we all have a blessed year.

Anyway, I did not cook or prepare for the noche buena. There is no sense because everybody in this house -- hubby and daughter are in bed already. Nevertheless, it is till a good start of the year. We are healthy and having a happy family.

I am excited to see the fireworks popping later. I will just be a watcher lol.

Have a great year ahead, guys!

Her fave song

My taste of music didn't change despite the fact that I am now living in a what they call land of the free.

So everytime Dannielle is fussy, singing OPM or Original Filipino song helps calm her down. She likes to dance with me while I sang. To top it, it's a lullaby for her.

Her favorite song? I just discovered that she like it the most. It is the OST or original soundtrack of GMA's Una Kang Naging Akin starred by Maxene Magalona, Wendell Ramos and Angelika dela Cruz.

I searched for a better video on youtube and an audio on Imeem but there is no way I can find it. Yet, I was able to listen to the rest of the song for the melody, rhythm and lyrics.

I had to take my own notes and here is the lyrics...

Una ka sa lahat
ikaw ang tunay sa buhay kong huwad
una ka sa puso
ano bang nangyari tayoy naglayo

kay tamis ng kahapon natin
ky bilis ding nabalewala
tama nga bang nakitang nagdaan
tiyak n may masasaktan

[pano sya paano ka
paano nga ba ang puso't isip ko nalilito
una ka paano sya
saan ba ako pupunta

ako ba ay hangal
dalawa ang mahal
ang gulo ng mundo nating tatlo
una ka paano sya saan ba ako pupunta]

una kang minahal
tanong ko palagi bat di nagtagal
sanay walang masaktan
ano man ang kahihitnan ng lahat

kay tamis ng kahapon natin
ky bilis ding nabalewala
tama nga bang nakitang nagdaan
tiyak na may masasaktan
repeat [ ]
una kang naging akin
ngunit sya ang dapat kong mahalin
repeat [ ]

It's Christmas time in the city

Wishing everyone a Happy Holiday!

Let me just share you some of the activities we had this Christmas eve.

We had our lunch at my in-laws. Tell you what, that was pretty good. She is one of the living best cooks.

Since my mom--in-law is leaving tomorrow to Florida to see her other grandchildren, our early gift giving was done this afternoon. I received some lovable stuff as well as the hubby and Dannielle. I have a gift card which made me more happier (wink).

At in-laws place, other relatives came over. Talk. Chat. Laugh. That was it.

It's raining tonight and I am not sure if I will be able to see some fireworks. More so, I can not enjoy it more coz Dannielle is sleeping and I don't wanna leave her alone.

Entrecard outage


It's past 10:20 in the evening (CST) here. I am actually in the middle of EC dropping when the problem occur. More or less, I still have over 40 drops available to complete the allowable 300 drops a day per blog.

The message below explains why.

Serious error

We have a bug in our software, an automatic report has been sent to our developers and more whips are being applied as we speak. We apologise for the inconvenience.


Since I can no longer proceed dropping tonight, I might join my daughter in her room for a night rest. Be back tomorrow.

The Lemonade and Mary Antoinette Awards

My thanks to Kikamz for the following awards.

Honestly, I am not familiar with Mary Antoinette. I have no time to search of who she is for now. My curiousity is killing me but I need to do something more important after posting this.

With regards to the second award, I got one from Mommy Jerla a long time ago but need to repost it again for Kikamz.

DD's first snow

DD is my daughter Dannielle's nickname.

Anyway, last December 11 at around 9 in the morning, I took DD out of the house for her to see the snow. She may not appreciate it but her Dada took a picture of her and me for documentation.

Snow comes once between 8-10 years in SOuth Louisiana according to my husband. DD will be like 8-10 years old when its gonna happen again unless we're going somewhere else where every year is a white Christmas.

THe photo below is one of the poses and clicks we had that morning.

A good man passes away

I dunno exactly how to share it here. All I know is that my heart is broken. Lonesome for someone who was so dear to me. Someone who believed in my capabilities. A person who became my fan -- who used to laugh and smile to every jokes I cracked.

Now, I am regretful. Yes, I happened to talk to him on the phone about two weeks ago and yet, that was not enough. Before I left my home country, Philippines, I did not stop by his house to say goodbye nor see him (for the last time). I was thinking then it's better not to see anyone as it would just hurt my poor heart.

Ahhh...it's arduous to think. I want to go back home. I want to see him for the last days of his body in this world. I want to spend time with him though he can not see me any longer. I want to make him smile and laugh. I want him to be alive.

It's so painful to say....my Angkol (Uncle) Boy passed away yesterday. He was 56 years old. Though he was not that young yet not that old to leave. I understand he was sick -- asthma , the cause of his sudden death. He suffered from it for ages and lose too much weight.

I am sobbing as I compose this entry. Still can't believe this is happening.

A man born with a giving heart is now with our Father's hands. I am sorry I wasn't able to see you then. Never in my mind it occurred that I won't be seeing you on my visit.

May you rest in peace, Angkol.

Just woke up

Dannielle took her nap this morning. Feels good when she does. I have time for myself like taking shower, browsing the net, watching TV and taking a nap, too.

I woke when she woke me up. I'm telling you folks, she talks a lot and so loud.

Anyway, I have to end this post now. Jackie just buzzed me which means it's time to keep on refreshing the F5 key.

THe power Blog


WoW! Feels like I am a power Mom with this award. Thanks Mommy Jerla. I appreciate it.

Of so many tags or awards I had before, I can not recall if I already have this on or not. If I posted it then, I am still posting it now coz this is from a fellow mommy and a friend. From another person who never forgets to share her awards and tags to me for always.

Again, thanks Mommy.

More tags soon.
