"ber" months are coming

Time flies so fast. Tomorrow will be the start of ber months and I would like to say, tomorrow is my father's death anniversary too. It's been 8 years, and I remember he died just a day before my birthday. My last entry for August and welcoming "ber" months too.

Jump for Pehpot

If you look at the photo above, you will definitely say, they're having fun with this freeze.. jump shot!! Although they were not choreographed well, one would say, it's extremely funny!

The above photo was taken after the congress where my daughter attended in Baguio last year. I can't find any of my picture with this shot and I can't remember if I have one. Anyway, I'm too heavy to jump now.. unless the camera has the right timing and angle shot.. freeze! I want to imagine myself jumping up high with my co-bloggers and I will, for Pehpot.

me and my cuz

This is me and my cuz. We grew up together as childhood friends and shared silly and funny secrets during our teenage years. When she moved to Manila for her studies, we exchanged letters through snail mail. There was no internet that time and yet updated about each others life by mails. Now that we're both grown up and she is now based in US, we still email each other and chat online. I have been blogging about her in my previous posts. I am sharing some of our photos together but I apologize for the soft focus on the photographs. My cousin didn't know I upload photos with this post. For now, I can only share these copies 'til she allows me to post a more visible photos here.

This is my cuz in blue. I told her i love her top blouse here, it's very cool. I grabbed this photo in her summer in vegas album and she surely will be surprised about this.

Our photo together during her parents 50th wed anniversary.
I was the one in green. They say we have resemblance. agree cuz? I've been telling her to blog, (yes she did, in her multiply account) but I guess although she is my regular reader, an anonymous react/comment from her will be far from possibility. If you don't agree, then sorry, (lol) but it's my turn and my blog , so better blog now cuz! :D

yummy sunday

Yey! My favorite meme on Sunday, my Yummy Sunday!

Everybody loves pizza..

and pasta.

My daughter so loves lasagna. I wanted to cook pasta for her cravings but then we went out for a weekend treat.
It took her more than an hour for her regular meal, but not with pasta where she could finish in a matter of minutes.

back from a week blog holiday

I'm back now after a week blog holiday. My friends wondered where I've been for a couple of days now. I hibernated and thought what would life be after this? Would I emerged from my cocoon with a colorful life or back to my real world? And yes, I'm still doing the same thing. Nothing but only missed a lot here, my Yummy Sunday, Mommy Moments, Tuesday Meme, and my co-bloggers.


"Buwan ng Wika" was celebrated last month. My daughter participated in their school activities last week for the said event. She was wearing Filipiniana in this photo, "baro't saya and sinelas" and their theme is "Barrio Fiesta."
Look! seems like my daughter is truly enjoying her freshman year..

Happy long weekend everyone!

nightmares in the morning..

My everyday routine is waking up 4:30am in the morning even if I was up late the night before. After preparing my children to school, I normally go back to bed for another 3 or 4-hours sleep but not this morning where I slept only for an hour. Last week I had a very bad dream, it was actually a nightmare. I really don't know why bad dream usually happens to me in the morning. Today, I had one of the worst dream ever. I woke up so scary, so I just kept myself awake and had breakfast, thinking if what was happening around me was real until I finally convinced myself that I wasn't dead. I had my breakfast, a cup of coffee and slice of bread, and Magic was beside me, staring and having his breakfast too.

I started my day today in a quite different way. I made a little research why nightmares usually happen in the morning.

"Nightmares, and dreams, happen during REM (Rapid Eye Movement) phases of sleep. During the night, the brain goes through several stages of sleep and around every hour and a half switches into a REM phase. REM sleep phases last longer as the night goes on - which is why most dreams and nightmares happen towards morning."-NHS

I am not convinced yet why it happens to me in the morning. Maybe because of my bad sleeping pattern. I will share later about my nightmare in a separate post.

Have you encountered bad dreams or nightmares too?

Yummy Sunday #2

I can't believe it! It is Sunday once again. My Yummy Sunday and here is my 2nd entry.

My daughters are always craving for graham cake and I often bake graham for them. This is the teen magazine where my daughter got the menu for banana graham creme cake. And because my younger daughter couldn't stand anymore to her cravings that day, we headed supermarket that very hour and bought some ingredients needed for this cake.

And here's our own banana graham cream cake, it tastes really yummy.. so so yummy. I baked this with the help of my little kid.
It took only about an hour in the fridge. After a while, banana graham creme cake was totally gone.

Happy Yummy Sunday!!

Used Car Hunting

Buying used car has never been easy. You need to check everything, the site and the best deals that they can offer. Both time and effort consuming. Sometimes it is really very frustrating until I found this site, Hunting for used car now is now available in just one click. I remember one time when my friend asked me where to buy Used Ford Cars. I asked her many times about what car since there are still lot of cars being offered. They have thousands of other cars, used Honda cars, Volkswagen cars, Mercedes cars, in fact thousands of other used cars and new cars too. Aside from this, they do Car lease too. They offer the best price for such amazing cars. Please visit this site You'll never go wrong and hunting will never be frustrating anymore. Happy Hunting!

Thank you, President Corazon Cojuangco Aquino

Philippine democracy icon and former president Corazon Aquino dies at the age of 76, after battling colon cancer for more than a year. The Filipinos are now mourning over her death. An extraordinary lady, a mother with such a compassionate heart. May her soul rest in peace.
