Girls Night In

It's Mother's Day today and all I wanted to do is to do nothing!

Earlier, we girls have arranged for a sleepover at a friend's house and I can say it was a good change after a hectic week to wear off all the back-to-school jitters that's still haunting our nerves.

So I put my little Hobb to bed, got my music t shirts and ran down to our sleepover place. We started with a Bollywood movie that stirred much of our emotions, tears and laughter, then moved on to a chick flick Pitch Perfect II while our host, generous Ethel fed us endlessly to the brim! The night ended late but all the catching up was worth the eye-bags! :)

Today, we continued with all our movie-watching and all the lazy days in could call for while little Hobb amused us with his wits!

Sliding Doors Affair

Sliding doors and I has agreed to disagree ever since that epic kiss we had with each other in public a few years ago. Don't get me wrong, I prefer sliding doors anytime to a classic bing-bang door but our affair sees us nowhere. 
Recently at our professional development retreat, my friends son was swoon by a not so sparky sliding door that was standing viciously at our resort's dining hall. Everyone was in the dining hall having dinner when a bomb-like explosion sound happened a few feet from where my family and I sat. Those closest to it saw partly what happened and another friend of mine happened to be right in front of this boy who was then known to have brutally kissed head first with the sliding door. I bet the floor must have played a part otherwise, the boy won't get a big bleeding bump on his head and lips! Thank God there were trained nurses and doctors around. They soothed the wound in no time and the wailing stopped too! See, now you know why sliding doors and I don't click. Leave my experience out for there's nothing pretty after the big break up!

Cats Can Wait

Can't hide it but I tell my cat-lover students that I have aversion towards cats. This goes down to how many bad experience I've encountered with cats in the past. The last one was when I actually garnered all my phobias and tried to pat a Siamese cat! My best friend tried to convince me that I should first try to make connections with her cat by patting it on its head. Being me with animals, taking the move is not something I would naturally do but I thought YOLO! So, I slowly extended my right hand towards the cat knowing that it was in such a calm mode!

Pawwwwwowwwmeowww!! !@#$%^

As my hands were right above the cat's head, its paws came twice faster than my ability to think of screaming! There goes my de-phobia process!

When I walked through the Entirely Pets Pharmacy, I thought cats are cute but no, thank you!

Brunch because We are Home Church-ing

Happy Sabbath readers! 

It's Sabbath today and we were supposed to prep the little boy for Sabbath school but oh look who is still lying on the bed?? 

When the wife is still in bed early Sabbath morning you know for sure that everything will be delayed throughout the whole day! Always end up with the husband making breakfast but usually magic happens when he fixes breakfast in the morning because there must be something with him and the ladle that food will always turn into scrumptious brunch! 

I hope the Lord can forgive me if I even peeped into my many apps and shop for merz apothecary while brunching! 

Exactlly, it's called home church-ing today. 

When Your Cardigan Becomes a Bikini!

This was exactly what I felt like saying after checking 120 students' bibliography note cards today! Wait, make that a virgin margarita. Oh, hold on a


Thank God It's Friday!!

Poorest Songkran

Songkran has been a time where we used to look forward to every year because as teachers, this is one of the only break we get after long weeks of school! When days became weeks and weeks became months, we totally can't think of any place better to spend our Songkran other than to stay at home!

When Hobbit and I thought about the heat, the rain, the splashes, the burns...What better way to spend this holiday at home doing spring cleaning -- I see the junks inside my living room's closet screaming for us to notice that they needed a much better place; the kitchen sink dying to be pampered with vinegar and lime; the colorful yarns trapped inside the drawers yelling to be popped open...

With all that said, watch for some second hand sale! I guess the guitars need to be with a rock star soon. Gotta check out prices. For new ones, musiciansfriend has some cool ones too! To place your order, call us toll-free at 800-449-9128 according to their website!

Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
  Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
  And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
  The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
  The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
  Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
  And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
  The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
  And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
  The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
  He went galumphing back.

"And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
  Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
  He chortled in his joy.

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
  Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
  And the mome raths outgrabe.

Home to a Wedding!

Hi! I've been missing this space. Blame the fun fat holiday back home. But now I am back. In fact, I've been back for almost a month, to reality of course. 

Home was fun. There wasn't a day my family and I weren't on the road traveling, except when we had A&J's wedding done at home. This was the first wedding done at my parents house. We really didn't know what to expect but pray. 

The day before the 2nd wedding at home, we all got very busy. I mainly didn't do anything much but did help with small chores for the pros. were all at their designated jobs. Oh, I got to help with the decoration a little bit where I was assigned to wrap a circular wood for gold wedding bands. I messed up more than a dozen!

In the cooking department, my mom had all her comrades. She wanted to make sure that her guests go home with a happy tummy and not having to do rounds of toilet runs (like the previous weddings we attended. Man, that was horrible!). 

Then came the day. All the guests are seated, the bride arrived in all her glory while my great aunt grandma and the groom welcomed her with a the traditional gongs beating away as they made their entrance. 

The food was top notched and service was great. We were all tired when the day ended. Too early to celebrate 2015 yet not too early to bed. When the firework's sparkled and shooting the stars, my household was all drooling and fast asleep. 

Happy Belated New Year, my STILL FAITHFUL readers!
