You know the feeling when your plane finally landed and you felt the wheels touched the ground? Oh, you would say, “Thank God, I’m here!” And how you would like to clap your hands to express how wonderful was your flight. Have you ever felt that way? Well, with me… Almost all the time… :)
So last 3 days ago V picked me up in the airport and before we headed to our hotel, we decided to have our lunch first. We passed this Chinese Restaurant where we dined sometime last year, so that I asked him if we would be having some chinese food for lunch. But V suggested that we should go to an Italian Restautant this time, to where we haven’t had gone before, and it was like two blocks away from the Chinese Restaurant.
I really enjoyed my food plus the wine of course…
Then smoke all over… We could smell the fire…
And you know where was the fire?
Oh you wouldn’t believe it, but The Chinese Restaurant was on fire. So I took my camera right away and started shooting… The Firemen came to the rescue at once!
I gathered that the fire started in the kitchen.
Well, I did not catch the fire because it was put out so quickly by the firefighters and here are some of the photos I shot:
Anyways that night V and I were also on Fire in our Hotel
And here we were the following day in front of our apartment getting ready for our trip to Center France…

*** As of the moment we are back to Paris and we are getting ready for our next trip to Barcelona on Wednesday, I just took this time to update you with our Duets Music Passion …
and to update you with my one week holiday :) Stay tune for more fun guys… I love you, mmmwahhhh
When I met you I tasted life
Like a bud, I blossom, I breathe
Never again would I strife
For your love and care are so deep
Smiling thoughts of you conquered me
In the morn when I make my coffee,
When I eat, or laugh you’re with me,
And everywhere it’s you I see,
Along the road, those lovely trees,
At my work with my Apple breeze,
These words I’m writing now, I grace
Because you put smile on my face
You’re the best part of my everyday
And at night when I lay down to sleep
Still there you are all over me
Smiling thoughts of you lingers great!
V and I met in IMVU, January, 2010. Our avatars just clicked together, hehehe. After 6 months dating on the web, we decided to meet in person.
He introduced me to his family and friends. Our True Romance started here in the Land Of Love- Paris. I visited him 3x in this year. 21 days in July. A week in September. And another week in November.
In this year I visited him 2x. A week in July and then another week before Christmas. But take note that we are always online everyday in Skype, since our Romance started in 2010 and up to now. That’s how we take care of our Long Distance Relationship. He’s now sleeping and snoring as I write this post. hehehe :)
I spent my summer with him in August for a week and then another week by November.
And here I am getting ready to spend 10 exciting days with my love. Wow! After like 8 months… ! So you wouldn’t imagine how excited we are to be together again in flesh, hehehe. I will be flying this Thursday (tomorrow to be exact, July 24) to Paris. Then from Paris, we’ll fly to Barcelona. This is my first time to visit Spain. I will finally see the country where my ancestors came from. Yiheyyy! :)
And on December, it’s V’s turn to pay me a visit and meet my family too… :)
Mother is HEAVEN
Subsistence pal. True-hearted
WOMAN… Full of LIFE!
Today is my mom’s birthday. She was already gone but I see and talk to her in my dreams, whenever I seek guidance or some advise. And most often her advises worked on me.
For instance, one of them, like 2 years ago, I noticed a little dark spot on my upper right cheek and it was getting darker and darker. I applied different bleaching products that was prescribed to me by my dermatologist, but none of which ever help to fade away the dark spot. And then one night I dreamed that I was with my mom and she told me the medication that I should used instead. Believe it or not, the result was amazing. It worked!
It really feels good to know that she’s still around whenever I need a mother touch. Yes, I know I am already a mother but it just feels so joyful to have my mother with me even only through my dreams.
A Blessed Birthday
You’ll always be missed and loved
I love you Mamang.
I am a having a moment recalling my first snow… As you know that Philippines has only 2 seasons… The Wet and The Dry Seasons. So when I was just a little girl, I dreamed to be able to make my own snowman one day…
And then… it happened:
Here I was in my first strolling in the snow… I remember that I really did tumbledown right on the ground… Well it didn’t hurt that much… For me it was an incredible and wonderful experience already! hehehhe
Okay so here I was making my snow-baby :)

Anyways once you got inside and started to have your excitement in playing with your mouse…
Have a break to grab your favorite tea or coffee and drink with me :)
I love you guys!
Today’s Cafe Siesta is to wake up your memories and experience some random flashbacks… by simply closing your eyes :)
This was another mail that I received from a friend of mine… A long one but WELL worth it…. I hope you all enjoy as much as I did.
and he said,
“I hate to admit it but I can remember all of these as I’m sure you will also. I remember these things…but I do it with very fond memories! When life was soooo much easier and slow. ”
Although, I wasn’t born in this era… I find this song very awesome :)
I remember that I loved to play with my walking dolls that were almost as tall as I was… I had plates, cups and saucers made of papers that I created myself.
I enjoyed running around with my siblings… They would bring me with them to a river bank where it was not allowed for children to play. One day they sneaked out and brought me with them, I was only 5 years old back then and when my father found us there, Yay! He scolded the big ones but he spared me… hehehe… Because he believed I was innocent :)
I watched Tom and Jerry, Sesame Street after school. Favorite TV shows and series were Wild Wild West, Different Strokes, Bob Hopes… hmmmm I feel happy already while thinking of those things… I even could smell the donuts that my mom used to bake! Yummmy!
Here are some pictures I was able to scan from one of my old albums… :)
Okay, you can begin now to spend some time to close your eyes and imagine how it was… :) and then you can grab your favorite tea or coffee and savor it and enjoy it to the last drop :)
I love you guys!
This is our hand-made Christmas Tree :) My children and I made this one as early as 1 in the morning and we finished it at 5 in the morning, December 1, 2013… 10 hours before my flight coming back to the Kingdom :)
I won’t be able to be with my kids this Christmas but the memories and togetherness of making our Family Christmas Tree with them count the most.
The joy of making it and sharing thoughts on how to do it was already a Blissful Family Christmas.
I feel great to tell everyone that I am now single.
Three years after my separation (2005), I have filed a marriage annulment (2008).
At long last this year 2013, last September 30, the court has decided and ordered that my marriage was null and void.
I am so happy as ever.
Happy because a new chapter begins in my life and I can move on forward.
Some of you may wonder and would ask me, “do you have any regrets at all? Do you feel sad?
Well, honestly I do not have any regrets at all. I have four beautiful, loving and responsible kids. They are now all grown-ups and as a mother I am so fulfilled that I manage to put them all to school. A year from now my first daughter, Maria Ahtalia will soon finish her Dentistry course and become a successful Dental Surgeon or Orthodontist. My second daughter, Greta Garda will soon graduate in IT course 5 months from now to become a successful Digital Arts Designer. My third daughter, Tajah Jireh will soon to become a famous Fashion Designer, 3 years from now. And my son, Picardo Leo, who is now in Secondary Schoool wanted to become the most wanted Architect one day.
I sounded so positive! But that is most of mothers wished for their children, aren’t we all?
Sad? Yes, there is a little sadness in a way that my marriage for 12 years did not work to last. But ending it, is the best thing to do and very smart move and I never and I won’t ever regret it. I have the rest of my life now to look forward to and so I must make the most of it and feel thankful to my God in every moment as possible and ask His guidance and wisdom on how I take charge of my life and make a difference.
I believe that everytihnig happens for a reason. I have a full life and I take these life challenges in a positive outlook. I move on with my life. I keep adjusting to needs and keeping all vital areas of my life in balance. I will continue to passionately pursue my mission or goal and I will never ever quit.
Life goes on and a new chapter begins. :)
Last week November 30… My kids and I went to go house hunting. And we wished to get and own a Victorian kind of house in this beautiful Village and Resort Community to live by one day :)
This is what a Victorian House look like.
The house model isn’t ready for viewing yet so I just took this shot from one of their miniature displays…
My work during Ramadan is in the night. From 9pm to 2am :(
So when I come home, it’s hard to sleep and once finally I fell asleep… I sleep real deep and it’s hard again to wake up… Yay! I would wake up forcing myself to get up. And you bet my day is very short :( and so I missed going to Gym ( an excuse actually, hahaha) But the thing is I like it better to go to gym in the morning than to do it in the afternoon.
Anyways, it will be over soon and I look forward for my one week holiday :)
These remarkable photos and background
music will leave a lasting impression.
