time flies, they say. and it goes by so fast esp. if you’re doing a lot of things. work has kept me busy lately and posting stuff has been limited. blog visits included.

flashback: jan. 19, 2008 — woke up to a drizzly day. not the kind of weather i hoped for at all. not with something big happening. but the older ones say it’s a sign of blessing. the events were a big blur actually. the photographer & his crew arriving early. me getting dolled & dressed up. going to ninang rose’s house for the photo-op. the drizzle didn’t go away at all. by the time the ceremony was over, it was raining. we didn’t get to shoot as much shots as we wanted. it was night time when the ceremony finished. i should’ve opted for an earlier mass. hugs, kisses and congratulatory greetings. envelops handed to me. photo-op again, this time with the guests. a little dinner, toast, cake cutting, flower throwing, garter tossing, a few speeches and that was it. wanted to spend more time with our guests & relatives, but i was fetched by my “new” hubby’s aunt. it was time to go. before leaving, mom asked when i’d visit them at home. and i was specifically told that i can’t. not in the next four days. good thing we were off to palawan in a couple of days.

return to: jan. 19, 2009 — morning kisses from hubby. he told me that he was off to get the car tank filled up. was still too tired to wake up. woke up at around 9am (yes, i am a majorsleepyhead) – not my usual waking hour. i usually wake up in the wee hours of the morning to get to work. but today, i was on leave. and so was hubby. i did a little laundry after breakfast. took a bath and got dressed. hubby & i planned to spend the day in tagaytay. try to experience how cold it would be out there (the past days were really cold). i was used to having the air-con off after passing through santa rosa. the air’s usually much cooler than the air-conditioning. but the windows of the car are having some problems. so we couldn’t roll them down. initially we wanted to try antonio’s. but my older brother had been there with his wife before, and i’m not so sure if i could appreciate what they serve. it’s a little pricey plus, i’m not much of a fan of veggies. or organically grown stuff. we cruised through tagaytay, trying to pick which place to eat. we ended up choosing gerry’s grill. not your usual place to spend an anniversary, i think. it’s more of a place to dine with your big family or with a group of friends. but i didn’t mind. not at all. first, i wasn’t feeling that good (suffering from the dreaded, all-time dreaded dysmenorrhea), second, i’m not the usual “chocolate-flowers-candle-lit dinner for two” type of wife.

after our lunch (there was a couple who spent their reception at gerry’s too while we were eating, hehe), hubby asked me where i wanted to go next. i had no idea. all i wanted to do then was lie down and ball-up like a fetus. i was having the worst case of dysmenorrhea then. didn’t get to appreciate all that we ordered. mango salad, grilled squid, fresh lumpia, LK (i think it’s hubby’s fave. hehe). i slept in the car and woke up in calaruega. i was feeling a little better because i popped in some painkillers before we left gerry’s. a little tour in the place. a few shots here and there and we were off to batangas. bought a few goodies at good shepherd first before going to mom’s place via the bitukang manok (we call it our short-cut in going home from tagaytay).

we spent a few hours at my mom’s house before heading back home. surprise of the day was i got a bunch of roses, white roses, as i got in the car. i had a small bag that i was going to return to my mom after our tagaytay trip, and hubby told me to put it in the trunk. i told him i could easily throw it in the back seat and when i did, i saw it. he said that when he told me that he was getting the tank filled up, he was lying. he really went to the shop to buy them for me. hmmn. unexpectedly sweet of him. but, like i said, i’m not that kind of wife. so it was no biggie. after a really non-eventful day, we both spent a few hours talking in bed first before going to sleep. i asked him what he wanted for his anniv gift and he told me he didn’t really want anything yet. he asked me what i wanted and i told him to just save up, not give me any gift for our coming anniversaries, cause what i wanted, still want, is a little expensive. i want some jewelry. diamonds are a girl’s best friend. hehehe.

here are a few photos. my feeling lousy wasn’t evident at all. hehehe.

bed-weather day again!

anlamig na naman. you could hear the wind from my room. this month has been the coldest month the philippines has experienced ata. nami-miss ko ang araw. laging cloudy. sobrang hangin. eh lamiging tao pa naman ako. ansarap lagi magbabad sa kama. kaya buti na lang walang work today. pero shempre, may mga chores din naman kelangan gawin. kaya di pa rin makapagbabad sa kama. besides, ang aga umalis ni mr. antuken para pumasok sa trabaho. 530am. parang lumamig bigla yung bed kaya gumising na rin ako. kumain ng agahan. ibinabad ang mga lalabahan. at natulog ulet. hahaha.

gumising ng maliwanag na. pero wala pa rin ang araw. nakakatamad maligo. malamig kse. kaya nga nung kinasal kami, ang unang-unang purchase naming mag-asawa (from our nest egg money) eh water heater. tulad ng nasabi ko, lamigin ako. ayoko ng malamig na tubig pag naliligo. gusto ko lang ang malamig na tubig kung iinumin ko. otherwise, ayoko ng malamig na tubig.

tinext nga ako ng nanay ko. tinatanong kung ano raw plano ko ngayon araw. kung uuwi daw ba ako sa kanila. umuwi daw ako at baka makapaglamierda kami. sinabi ko mimya konti. sa totoo lang tinatamad kse ako maligo pa. at kumilos. although tapos ko na ang labada ko. malapit nang magtanghalian. makapaligo na nga siguro.

welcome 2009!

it’s another year. ang iba, pagdating ng bagong taon, nagse-set ng new year’s resolutions. ngunit, hindi naman ako nausuhan nun, kaya wala rin ako nun.

lately, hindi na ako nakakapag-post. the corporate audit we had (at work) at the start of december took all of my extra hours. mabuti naman at we passed that audit. plus, puro mga party party party. sa office we had 2. and both times, ni hindi lumapit ang anino ng pangalan ko pagdating sa raffle.

ano nga bang nangyari ng nakaraang taon saken?

una sa lahat, nagpakasal na kami ni mr. antuken ko. nagliwaliw sa palawan at sumubok gumawa ng baby. ngunit di successful.

nagsawa na nga ako sa mga tanong ng kaibigan at kamag-anak ng: “ano may laman na ba yan?”

walang pagkakaiba rin naman ang sagot ko: “wala pa e.”

ni hindi ko ma-experience ma-excite, kse laging on the dot ang dating ng aking dreaded bisita (dreaded kse laging parusa ang dysmenorrhea ko!). nang masabi ko yan aloud, aba tinesting agad ako ng nasa itaas. na-experience ko rin ma-delay. shempre, excited ang lola nyo. after a week, na-kumbinsi ng isang officemate na mag preg test. sabi ko ayoko at too early. okei lang daw at sya daw 1 week delayed, nag-test eh positive na. so go, bumili ng kit. kinabukasan, nag-test. positive ba? shempre hindi! kung positive yan, matagal ko nang nai-kwento. hehe.

pangalawa, na-meet ko ang kaisa-isang reyna ng blogosperya. sino pa nga ba? eh di ang reyna elena. uber generous ng isang ito. too bad i didn’t get to see her when she came back a few months back.

isa pa, nakilala ko ang mga greenies. i’ve been a fan of GP nung nagsisimula pa lang ako. being part of the greenpinoy family is so much fun. kahit kung tutuusin eh iilang gimik lang naman ang nasamahan ko. one major adjustment i had to make was cut down on going out. strict si hubby. sobrang major ito para sa akin. kse i never experienced it with my parents. nung miss pa lang ako, anywhere i wanna go, okei lang. this time, hindi pwede. lalong-lalo na ang mga last minute ayaan. asa ka pang makakasama ako jan. hubby doesn’t like it much pag sumasama ako sa kanila. hindi na raw ako dalaga. eh compromise na lang. pag mga lakad na di naman gagabihin, pinapag-paalam ko. pumapayag naman (although feeling ko napilitan lang. hahaha).

major adjustment din ang paglipat ko ng tirahan. wala na akong mauungutan ng: yay, ano’ng ulam? o kung ano pang paglalambing (read: katamaran) sa yaya namin (yaya talaga sya ng aking kuya — bulag na, for about 9 years na ata, i think). mabait naman ang in-laws ko. buti na nga lang. kse di ba, kalimitan ang in-laws eh mahirap pakisamahan. daw. swerte ako at wala ako nun. hehe. ang kapalit naman ng paglipat ko ng bahay, may katabi na ako pagtulog. kaya ayos lang. hehehe.

nakakatamad magkikilos ngayong araw. it’s a “bed-weather-day” today. yan ang tawag ko sa panahon na malamig. masarap humiga at magbabad sa kama. too bad hubby’s at work today. tsk tsk.

ang major p-project-in ko this year: gumawa ng baby. kaya kung may mga tips kayo diyan. i-share nyo naman. hahaha.

happy new year everyone!
