i attended a double birthday celebration yesterday. double because one of my inaanak, sophia, is turning 4 on the 29th and her younger brother, akiro, turned 1 yesterday.

sa totoo lang, masakit sa tenga pala umattend ng children’s party. ang iingay nila.

one of the games the clowns played was the “name the commercial” game. dito, kakantahin nila yung jingle ng patalastas/commercial at tatawagin nila ang bata na unang nagtaas ng kamay para sagutin kung ano nga ang commercial na yun. bawal daw isigaw ang sagot.

so kinanta nila yung “bulilit, bulilit”. di naman ako mashadong nanonood ng tv, pero nacu-cute-an ako sa unang commercial ng camella homes, so tinawag nila ang isang batang lalaki

clown: ilang taon ka na?

kid boy: 5

clown: ano gusto mo paglaki?

kid boy: pulis!

clown: ano ba ginagawa ng pulis?

kid boy: NATUTULOG!

(laughter all around shempre)

clown: hindi, naghuhuli sila ng masasamang?

kid boy: MUKHA!

clown: masasamang tao, o sya sige ang commercial na kinanta ko, tahimik dito, mahangin, nagsisimula sa letter C…

kid boy: CEMENTERYO!

clown: hindi, tahimik nga dun, pero hindi sementeryo, o sige, nagsisimula ito sa CA..

kid boy: KABAYO!

clown: hindi, ulitin mo lang yung binulong sa ‘yo ni ate kanina, ano yung binulong nya?

kid boy: camella

clown: sige, camella homes. o eto ang prize mo. ano’ng sasabihin mo sa birthday celebrants? happy?

kid boy: NEW YEAR!

clown: happy birthday! kaano-ano mo yung celebrants?

kid boy: TROPA!

——————————-

hahaha, major kwela. eto pa isa… yung next naman kinanta nya yung jingle ng nescafe. tinawag ang isa sa mga celebrants, si ate:

clown: ate ikaw ano gusto mo paglaki mo?

sophia: doctor!

clown: ah, maganda yan. doctor ba ng tao o ng hayop?

sophia: NG BUS!

(hahaha. conductor pala?)

clown: si ate naman, o sige na nga. yung kinanta ko, ano’ng commercial yun? gusto yun inumin ng mga lolo at mga daddy sa umaga, pampainit ng tiyan.

sophia: ALAK!

clown: ate naman, hindi alak, nes?

sophia: NESCAFE!

clown: tama nescafe tapos c? anong c yun?

sophia: CALAMANSI!

————————-

punta na sa 3rd na bata.

clown: ilang taon ka na?

kid girl: tatlo

clown: ano gusto mo paglaki?

kid girl: teacher

clown: ano ba ginagawa ng teacher sa school?

kid girl: nagtitinda!

tapos madami pang palitan ng sagot ang dalawa, at ang ending…

clown: kaano-ano mo ba ang celebrants?

kid girl: syota.

hahaha. sobrang riot talaga ang birthday party na to. noon lang din kse ako nakapanood ng game na ganun. at nakakaaliw pala pag mga bata ang nasagot. hahaha.

nakakapagod manood ng game 7 kanina. i was rooting for the celtics. too bad they lost. haay.

went home to batangas to watch the game. nahihiya kse ako sa MIL ko at sobrang hyper ako manood ng basketball game e. hehe. para hindi limited ang pagtili ko, umuwi ako sa bahay ng nanay ko.

kaso, pag napapasigaw ako ng konti, si yaya sinisitsitan ako. wag daw ako maingay mashado at baka mabulahaw ang daddy ko.

so, lipad ako papunta sa bahay ng kuya ko. yun, free to jump, free to scream, free to do whatever i wanted. hahaha.

the game was going so well. after every quarter, ina-update ko pa si mr. antuken with the end-of-quarter scores. the first 3 quarters were great. baket pag dating sa final, semplang? hahaha.

the game was great. even the ym exchanges with my girl cousins were fun too (both were lakers fans). masakit sa dibdib nangyari dun sa game na yun. close fight kse. tsk tsk. sana next season sila ulet magharap-harap para fun ulet. hehe.

talipandas

just a few more weeks to go, pasko na naman. miss ko na mag-mall. or makipagsiksikan sa divi. usually, mga ganitong panahon, ganun ang ginagawa namin. mamimili na ng mga pang-regalo sa mga inaanak. sa mga kapatid, magulang, tito, tita, pinsan…

kaso, i’m semi-injured. due to some stupidity on my part, meron ako major sugat sa paa. making it difficult for me to walk straight. kaya naman pinagkaka-intay ko ang nov. 26. it was actually on its way to recovery (the sugat). kaso, dahil sobrang naaliw at meron akong 2-day restday last weekend, sumama ako kay mudra. together with her friends. nag-treat kse yung kaibigan nya. lunch daw. so sabi ko, okei lang. lunch lang naman. walang mashadong effort yun on my part.

kaso, after the lunch, nagkayayaan silang mag-sm. so dumaan pa kami ng sm. i didn’t do much walking then (or so i thought). andun lang ako sa shoes section most of the time. after a while, napagod na rin ako and called my mom and asked her kung uuwi na ba kami.

sabi nya, pwede na daw. magkakasama na daw sila. yung mga friends ng nanay ko, 7 silang lahat. plus ako, plus yung son ng friend ni mudra. so kumbaga, 7 senior citizens plus 2 kids (naks, ipilit daw na kid ako!). when i got to the van, guess kung sino andun? yung anak din ng tito (read: mom’s friend) ko. ang mga SC (senior citizens), andun pa sa loob ng mall.

i commented to raymond nga (my tito’s son): you’d think madaling mapapagod ang mga kasama natin no? (malakas pa ata sa kalabaw ang mga kasama namin e. hehe) he couldn’t say anything but agree with what i thought. hahaha.

paguwi, dun ko na-realize, na yung sugat ko, mukhang na-refresh ulet. yan kse, talipandas sa katawan.

kaya sa mga inaanak ko na di ko mabibigyan ng gifts this christmas, sorry na. bawi ako next time. di mashado makapag-mall ang ninang e. (although, july pa lang, nag-start na ko ng christmas shopping ko, hehehe)

counting the days

excited na ako mag november 26. i asked my tita to bring home something i asked my cousin to buy for me from the states. and now i’m counting the days. hehe. plus, that’s the day my doctor’s coming back from his trip from i dunno where. basta sabi ng receptionist nya last saturday when i came for a follow-up check-up: he’s out of the country and will be back on the 26th. so i have 2 things to look forward to on the 26th.

had a fun night last sunday. maldito was in town, at kahit sinungitan ako ni hubby at ayaw payagan, i still went ahead and met up with him.

while at work, i asked him & jeck where we were going to hang out. ang sagot chosen ground daw, 5 pm. somewhere in malate. so, okei. parang malapit lang din ang malate sa bus station, so hindi hassle ang pag-uwi ko.

palagay ko jeck’s not very familiar with malate, like me (sows, ’twas ages ago nung nagimik kami dun), kaya we decided to meet up at rob muna. he said nbs daw kami magkita. ansarap talaga magbabad sa bookstore. i kept on wishing i had tons of money so i could buy the books that i wanted.

ang unang natanong ko nga pala kay maldito eh kung bukas na ba yung place ng 5pm? knowing malate kse, late sila di ba?

we walked along bocobo until we reached nakpil. the old places i used to hang out were still there. verve room. common ground. and then it struck me. hindi kaya common ground ang mini-mean ni maldito when he said chosen ground? sakto, pagdating namin sa tapat ng common ground, andun din si maldito with two of his friends.

bigla kaming napahagalpak ng tawa. kung anoman ang rason, samen na lang yun. hehe.

turned out, sarado pa ang place na gusto nilang puntahan. we ended up hanging out at the one in front of where we met.

tahimik sa personal ang 2 bloggers na kasama ko (kapanipaniwala ba?). dahil ayoko ng dead air. daldal galore ang nagawa ko.

twas a fun night. when xg arrived, mejo napabuntung-hininga ako. kse feeling ko may ka-relyebo na ko. hahaha.

dahil matindi pa kay cinderella ang curfew ko, had to leave by 8pm dapat. pero i waited awhile longer to meet xg. i read her blog (hello, di ba obvious, nasa blogroll ko), pero i don’t comment. hehe. shy daw.

thanks jeck sa paghatid sa bus station. and thanks maldito for the chicha na 3 bayan pa ang pinanggalingan. at sa guitar kitchen (hehehe). bitin yung gimik, para saken. pero that was better than not meeting up with you guys at all. dahil strict si hubby, i had to compromise di ba.

too bad, i wasn’t able to witness you guys singing on-stage. hahaha.

at si gasti, drawing. hehehe.

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.
