It was also December last year when my mama bid her farewell and joined our creator in heaven. Last Thursday, we visited her grave and reminisced how wonderful she was for all us. Both my daughters, 5 of my cousins and Mama's 3 sisters were with me as we pay tribute to our beloved, Salvacion. I showed them the AVP I made for Mama months ago. In it were old photos and it brought back memories and laughter too.
I may miss Mama a lot but life has to move on. I always tell and remind myself to be strong for my kids. I always mention that I want to be like Mama, in many ways. I regret not to have fulfilled some her dreams for the family but I can still do it for my kids.
We were there until past 6PM. It was nice to have been able to bond with people closest to your heart. There were more photos from the other camera brought by my cousin Divine.
I was never an alcoholic back when I was a teenager. I guess it just didn't get into my nerves at all. I occasionally drink but knows when to say NO when I had to stop. Most often than not, I assign myself to be on guard to my friends who gets drunk most of the time. I am not sure when I learned to take that kind of responsibility even if not asked.
It was very recent when my childhood friends and I got the chance to meet up at one of our friend's house. We were served with a light alcoholic drink and since I came there with both my kids, I only had 2 bottles. I know that's enough for me. It is somehow saddening that based on this chart, there are really a lot of alcohol drinkers in the US and I am pretty sure that the stats would have been so high if it was done worldwide. Anyways, I wouldn't like to see my kids to be regulars in terms of alcohol intake. Besides it being bad to our health, it has become bad to the character too. Occasional drinking is definitely fine.
It is hubby's birthday today but I have not prepared anything special yet. He got so busy with work that we never get to have couple's time anymore. No more dating. Quite disappointing indeed. But, I make it a point to initiate intimate talks, cuddles and even invitation to at least go out together as a couple. It has been a while since the last time we went on a date. I was never an envious person but feel a little envy for those who really take time to set time for their partners. Alright, it's his birthday and I shouldn't be feeling this way. I will make it a point to cook spaghetti or Carbonara instead. The latter has become his favorite and I am proud that it's because of my recipe. =)
Anyways, I have a friend who is now happily dating someone she met. He was introduced by their common friend. I am happy for her now that she's find herself someone to be with. She's searched for companionship for sometime and have experienced heartaches and gone through the dramas of it too. When she was back to her feet and composed, she's tried online dating but didn't succeed. I was one of those who reminded her that love is not something you have to chase, for it will come in its perfect timing. I truly wish that perfect time for her is now and the perfect guy is him.
Along with these positive sides of dating sites comes the negative side too. There could be more cons than the pros actually.
* First, men can always lie about their marital status. Since a person can be anonymous, you really cannot tell whether the information given in someone's profile is the truth.
* Some online dating sites would require you to shell out a good amount of money before you can even reply to a profile.
* It promotes in an indirect way of antisocial behavior because you aren't physically together to build a healthy social relationship. You do everything inside the walls of your home.
* You are bound to risk meeting a possible weirdo, pervert or someone dangerous. To avoid this, one should be strictly careful.
So, whether you would like to try online dating or not, being cautious is still very important. This post may have not enumerated everything to know about online dating sites but I am hoping that I was able to impart something for you to think about. Just remember - "All that glitters is not gold".
Now, let me go ahead. I'll have to park the mouse and rest the keyboard... will start to prepare for my own date. =)
Hubby's been spending his time off either playing online RPG games, if not, sleeping. It recently surprised me when I saw him opened our default browser and started reading used car reviews online. It gave me a little excitement which made me sit beside him and read too. He then mentioned that cars are a guy's thing.
Stuffed Toys – These cuddly stuffed toys are considered sweet the fact the the toy itself somehow represents you as the giver. The receiver can hug and comfort you anytime.
Body Spray/Body Mist – Now these comes in different sizes and scents. Most of the bestseller scents are the sweet ones. Those that has fruity scents are a good choice too.
Car Perfume – Your guy would definitely appreciate the sweet thought of having a new car perfume. Something that will make him feel manly and fresh all the time even when caught in a heavy traffic.
Statement Shirt – Give your guy a statement shirt that says: “I’m a sweet BF” , “Sweetest Hubby Ever!” or “Proud to be a sweet DAD”.
Something Small and Sexy
Earrings – a pair of affordable but pretty earrings will be a very good idea for this particular theme. It is undeniably small but adds an appeal of sexiness to every woman.
Stockings or Sexy Lingerie - Black stockings are not big but so sexy when worn under a mini skirt. A sexy lingerie - a brassiere perhaps will be a perfect match to it too.
Sexy DVD movie – A movie that will excite the man will be perfect for this category. And if you got invited to see the movie with him, don't forget to bring some chips and dips.
Shaving Set – Who wouldn’t be happy to see a sexy newly shaved man?
Lust Dust – Something naughty and unusual. I saw one from the net and it even said that the “magical power” of the powdery dust is true.
Do Not Disturb Glow in the dark door sign – Very simple but if it has a sexy photo in it, then it will simply ensure a little privacy or intimacy. Knock before you enter!
Adult Toys from Ann Summers - this is no doubt naughty, right? This particular theme is just easy if you are to give it to a guy.
Foreplay Timer – I did not know there is something like this but believes that this one is a bright idea for newly weds.
I just realized that naughty could be funny too and that some gifts can be categorized to different themes. Well, no matter what theme there is, the real essence is the fun and good act of giving whether you get something in return or not.
Have fun and happy holidays everyone!

She would look for Chuchay as soon as her eyes open every morning. She would want Chuchay to be beside her before she get to sleep at night. She wants Chuchay to be with her/bring with her every time we go out. She would allow Chuchay to sit either beside her in a stool or on top of the table when she eats. She was even teary eyed one time looking for Chuchay when she was already holding her (she thought she was holding a bag) haha! She cried out loud when I had to hang Chuchay outside to dry after they took a bath together. I would even catch her talk to the teddy bear and kiss it's nose ( she sucked them before she was one!). Tell me she isn't addicted with Chuchay please!
