DANAE’S FIRST MOVIE DATE!

Danae watched Gulliver’s Travels yesterday with her cousin Javi and his grandparents, as she was invited the other night. It was her first time to watch a movie in the theater without us. I did not hesitate because I knew she would be in good hands, and I was pretty sure the movie was safeContinue reading “DANAE’S FIRST MOVIE DATE!”

RPG

I am a person who rarely watches local films, probably because I’m not really interested in the stories they present or I did not grow up appreciating Filipino movies, except for Maricel Soriano comedies of course. There are very few movies I am intrigued by and I don’t go out of my way to watchContinue reading “RPG”

HAND-ME-DOWNS

a repost from my tumbler (http://awellofwisdom.tumblr.com/), written October 27…. My 5-year old daughter had her best friend over today, and my hubby called me into the room they were at to show me what they had done. All the stuffed animals on the topmost shelf of my closet were on the floor — Danae climbedContinue reading “HAND-ME-DOWNS”

COUPLE’S GETAWAY!

I’ve been trying for two weeks to write about the recent Couple’s Getaway, but I could only get so far. It’s been overtaken by newer write-ups, and has been stuck in my drafts.  Just the other day, I realized that I have been going at it all wrong. Instead of relaying what happened and howContinue reading “COUPLE’S GETAWAY!”

Top of the class!

Last month was Danae’s school’s parent-teacher conference and I was pretty excited to find out how well my daughter did. As I was waiting outside for my turn, I saw on the bulletin board the names of the top 3 students… the 3 kids who topped the kinder classes’ 1st achievement test. DANAE’S NAME WASContinue reading “Top of the class!”

A COMPLETE & UTTER FAILURE?

Here’s something I was pondering upon in Cagayan de Oro last month. What is success? I am surrounded by family members who, by the world’s standards, are pretty successful, I would say. My mom is retired but she was a valuable “employee” in Jardine Davies, Inc and Hawaiian Philippine Company (previously affiliated companies) for collectivelyContinue reading “A COMPLETE & UTTER FAILURE?”

Instead of critiquing me, why don’t you teach me?

My heart is just bursting right now. I have mixed feelings about a lot of things. It’s one thing to be the one receiving criticisms, judgments, doubts and the like, but it’s another thing when it’s directed at loved ones. It’s more hurtful and I feel quite helpless. But putting myself in my loved ones’Continue reading “Instead of critiquing me, why don’t you teach me?”

INFANTICIPATING?

Well, I thought I might be, but my second pregnancy test after 3 weeks’ delay in my monthly period said otherwise. Negative! Attending the Infanticipating book launch would have been timely and a perfect way to start or end this blog haha. Or could it be that I don’t know that I’m pregnant and I’llContinue reading “INFANTICIPATING?”

SOUND FAMILIAR?

I’ve taken note of these conversations in the past months because they made me think. Campus missionary Francis Villanueva’s great preaching at youth service yesterday about LUSOT, LAKAD & LAGAY, pushed me to finally finish and post it. Me: Nae, don’t stand on that chair. Your sister will copy you. (a constant line in ourContinue reading “SOUND FAMILIAR?”
