It's My Mother's Birthday

And since mom's birthday was a weekday, we opted to just give her flowers and cake. My nephew recorded a video of us singing happy birthday to ma and it was hilarious. There was a part of the video where ma and I were not moving and were keeping our sweetest smiles because we thought that Zandro was just taking a picture of us. My sisters and brothers had a good laugh with the video and I am not posting it here, haha!

Come Saturday, we just dined out at Gerry's Grill at SM Pampanga. It was also one of those days that my nephew and nieces love ShoeMart to bits. As they put it when we are at SM, "Yeheeey! Tom's World!!!!"

Valentine's Day

It was not a lonely Hearts Day for me! I may not have a partner(romantically) at that time but boy, I have enough love to fill me. I woke up with the kids holding those heart-shaped lollipops which they bought from their allowances. They gave me, Mommy Dess, Daddy Kong and even a few of our neighbors - they're the sweetest!!! I really love my babies!

Then we went to Shean's baptism at Party Land in San Fernando. The food was great. We went home very full and happy. Then, we had a small photo shoot at home. Zandro, Cheska and Pia were in the mood for pictures. I was expecting that this Valentine's Day would turn out to be one of the sad V days, if not the saddest. But I went to sleep that night, thanking the Lord for the abundant love from my parents, brothers, sisters and most specially from my babies! I was happy :)

What's up next? Watch out for March highlights... We have so much to be thankful for having a wonderful Oh!Life!... Cheer up everyone!

Our January

Curahee's Get Together

Aside from the fact that we celebrated New Year with the family during this month, I was also able to bond with friends - the Curahee. Friendship with these happy people started when we were still newbies in AOL. And we are so thankful that even if we are no longer in the same company, plus there were also few who are already working in foreign countries, we still manage to have our get-together every time we have the balikbayans. Of course, it always feels good to get these treats from them (hehe)  and to cope up with the happenings in our own lives.

The picture will tell you that we indeed enjoyed the night. It started with a dinner at Xtremely Xpresso at SM Clark. Check out the Big Ben pizza - it's always a hit with my friends (got different sets of friends but one common denominator: they all love Big Ben, heheh!). Then we went to Lei's crib and drank the night away.

Staying awake til 3 in the morning is always worth it when you are with good company. You never run out of stories to tell and you would never feel your cheeks hurting from non-stop laughing.

 Ate Vic Leaving for Australia
But then, life is not all about laughters... Sometimes, you also have to feel sadness. Ate Vic went to Australia last January 28. She's the wife of my brother, who happened to be our boardmate when we were in college. So guess what? More than a sister-in-law, she is also a good, good friend! After work, together with my other sister-in-law, Tits, we went for coffee at Starbucks at SM Pampanga.

The picture might not really show it but we were already crying that time. We will surely miss each other terribly even if there is already video chat ( there goes our line: iba pa din pag personal, with feelings!). She treated us for a coffee so that we could accompany her the whole night crying - and that was actually what we did. We waited til morning watching and joining her cry as she stared at the 3 little rascals, who need to be left behind for the meantime.

But life goes on and we are just waiting for next year to finally see each other again and do all the chikahans ( personal na yun non, so with feelings na ulet, heheh)

I never thought that having this "looking back" to the half year of my life can really be fun! So let's post that smile and enjoy Oh!Life!

No Promises

Aha, no more promises of updating this blog regularly - that's because I break those promises anyway, haha! But seriously, we're only counting 5 months and 2010 would soon be over - ambilis! I don't know if it's because I kept myself busy with a lot of things that days and months came without me noticing. I am not complaining though because I was busy with those times bonding with friends and family - lovin' those times! :))

So what's up with my next posts in this blog of mine that I neglected for how many months? (special message to my blog: Please don't hate me if I neglected you... please?) I will try to touch a little with the highlights of each month. And the operative word is - will try.... told you no promises! hahaha!

So hang in there, dear readers(do I still have? hahah) and sigh away the worries in your Oh!Life! (*o*)

Comfort Food: Fro-yo!

It's summer once again and what food would comfort you on this time of the year than a frozen yogurt! I love yogurt and I love it even better if it's frozen. Thank God SM Clark now have The White Hat Frozen Yogurt!!! I love this store.

It has the creamiest fro-yo I have tasted so far and you have so many toppings to choose from to go with the yogurt. I had mine with strawberry toppings. Nikki and I sampled it when we had a simple get together with our Curahee friends. And these pictures were grabbed from Nurse Nikki's facebook. Thanks, sweetie for dragging me to this store. Yup, we're fro-yo addicts :)

The White Hat Fro-Yo Store at SM Clark

It's yummilicious!!! :)

I Know...

Yeah, I know I am not keeping up with my promise on always updating this blog, booo! If there is one thing I need to blame this time, it would be my Internet provider. It's Digitel (major boooo!). For almost a month now, I am using Globe Tattoo and Smart Bro Prepaid interchangeably. We do not have a good signal at home but that's better than no Internet at all.

I grew tired of talking to the customer service since every time they go to the house to fix it, it worked temporarily. But the connection is intermittent and you would need to wait for about 15 to an hour before all those modem lights are on. And when it's on, count 5 to 15 minutes and the Internet is out again. Waaah! I know I am venting this is my blog anyway, lol!.

So I would just probably sneak sometime at work for blogging, eh? I am afraid I could not do that also. The two sites are just so demanding! Oh well, I think I'll just change the title of this post to "Venting" instead, LOL!

Valentine Suggestion: A Night for the Broken-Hearted

And if you think that all of the Valentine suggestions that I would be providing here would be for lovers/with partners, you're mistaken. Here is one for those single and broken-hearted (ouchie). We all still have a little place in this world, you know (nuff for self pity, lol!). Here is Party Place Bar's take on this Valentine's Day.

 Party Place Bar is at Mac-Arthur Hi-way Dolores, San Fernando City. You can call them at 045-961-3360. Be sure to wear black on February 13, 2010. They would be featuring an R&B band from Manila.

So if you are into this, do I get to see you on Saturday wearing black at Party Place? Ey, I won't be there - it's Pinoy Big Brother's Big Night. I would stay awake late just to catch this show everynight even if I have work the next morning - so NO I should not miss the Big Night. But thanks to Party Place -- they know that there are still those who would rather wear black than red on V Day. ;-)

Valentinte Suggestion: 15th International Hot Air Balloon Festival

The Hot Air Balloon Festival has been a regular event here in Clarkfield, Pampanga every February. Last year it coincides with Valentine's Day and same with this year. It starts on February 11, 2010 and ends on Valentine's Day. So don't you think it would be romantic to spend the Hearts' Day on this festival? The highlights usually are the balloon flights which usually happens at 5:45 AM to 7 AM and the night glow. The night glow is the best part (between 5:45 to 7:30 PM), in my opinion :) The sight is just spectacular! Check this photo taken by Vic delos Santos.

Tickets cost P150 each and are available at the TicketNet  or you can call +632 384-0085 and +63927 340-4994. For the full festival schedule, you can check it here.
