A Pose With Chizka’s Puppies

Happy April Fool’s Day everyone! I am one of the fools on April Fool’s Day for believing YouTube is really shutting down. What a fool of me. Lol.

Anyway, I am returning to the blog land. I am still addicted to Wartune but not as much as before. I have to lay low and start running back to making a living again or else my mother won’t stop nagging me.

Since today is April 1, I thought of the Blog Photo Challenge. What a good day to start! With Blog Photo Challenge, I can pull inspiration to blog daily.

A photo for Blog Photo Challenge – April 1.

For the first day of April, I would like to share a pose with my puppies..err Chizka’s puppes. You bet it right, this isn’t a very recent photo. This was taken last January when Chizka’s puppies were just about 2 or 3 weeks old. Don’t I look like a momma to these puppies? They are so cute, aren’t they? From five puppies, we are down to having just two puppies in the house. One was taken to my Uncle’s home, one to younger sister’s and the other one Mucho, Cheep’s puppy died a month ago due to internal bleeding after being run over by a motorbike.

How Did I Spend My 26th Birthday?

I turned 26 years old yesterday, December 22, 2012. Nothing grand happened on that day. There was no lavish celebration. No night-out party too. I stayed home and slept all day with my puppes. It was the loneliest and the most boring day. I was penniless and there was a brown out. What else would I do?  I rewarded myself my much-needed sleep.  If I was not waken up for dinner, I would sleep until sunrise the next day. I guess those hours of sleep were enough birthday gift for myself. It is what I needed most anyway, sleep.

Anyway, my mother surprised me with a few dishes for dinner. It’s sweet of her to bother prepare something for her eldest daughter’s birthday. I was barely awake when I got up. I didn’t want mother to start nagging about my eating (which I only do once a day as long as I have a stock of coffee and soda – yes unhealthy) so I forced myself to get up only to be surprised when mama and kids started singing a birthday song for me. I was touched. I was glad everyone remembered my birthday except that one person who I wanted so much to greet me, which he didn’t do.

The four bowls of dishes washed that thought away. There was stir-fry Chinese Noodles, a couple of fish dishes and a chicken adobo with coconut milk. Oh my the latter tasted like heaven! I got hungry right in one taste. I ended up three plates of rice with those viands, making up with the breakfast and lunch I skipped.

I rewarded myself a few sticks of cigarettes after eating since it was my birthday. I stayed up a couple of hours, checked my Facebook account and thanked those who greeted me on my wall. Then I went back to sleep. I got up around 1:00 in the morning and started blogging…that’s just how I let my birthday passed.

Bond With Candy

Candy and I have been bonding a lot lately. Who is Candy by the way? Candy is one of Chizka’s puppies.

366 Blog Photo Challenge

By her sweet name Candy, you can tell she’s a female pup. During the first two days spending time with the puppies, I have set my eyes on Candy. She is the biggest among the pups but the most behaved. She is just relaxed. She doesn’t cry too much unlike the other pups. She just stays silently sleeping in one corner. As you can see in the picture above, she is looking so contented and comfortable sleeping on my lap. She reminds of my first dog Sarah, a Labrador-Retriever who liked sleeping on my lap and when cuddled. I hope though Candy will grow behaved and not spastic like Sarah.

As much as I wanted to keep Candy, I couldn’t. My mother has also set eyes on her and wanted her as pet. So before we part ways, I have bonded with her lately. I let her sleep on my lap while I am in front the computer and Chzika can only watch everytime. I also let her sleep on the couch with me. For the last few days, I fall asleep with her sleeping on my belly. I instructed Rina to just transfer the dog to their bed when I totally fall asleep afraid I might crush the puppy.

Two Days With Insomnia

I slept all day today. It was good for I needed those long hours of sleep. My eyes and body claimed those two days of sleeplessness and stress. I was up for two days, yes that was 48 hours, due to insomnia. Being up for 48 hours is my worst so far when having insomnia. If you are like me who suffers such sleep condition, you truly can relate how hard it is to catch even a nap when insomnia attack. You cannot sleep the whole night so when morning comes, you’ll feel weak and tired and your eyes feel heavy or sleepy. The bad thing though, even how hard you’ll try to close your eyes to catch some sleep, your mind gets too active making the much-needed sleep so elusive.

So during those days, I just stayed in front the computers to either blog or watch dramas online and then when tired with the computer, I alternately played Xbox.  I was like blogging since 6 in the morning until midnight then watch some episodes of Korean dramas from midnight until two or in the morning. That was all sitting and typing and looking at the screen I did. I only stood up to get myself a glass of coffee or to go to the bathroom to pee.

Then at around three early in the morning when tired when all the computer/online work, I sit on the couch and faced the challenges in Baldur’s Gate in my Xbox game Dark Alliance II. When totally exhausted, I only lied down to rest my eyes and body…though the mind wasn’t. So these are all the things I did in two of insomnia.

A Picture That Started an Online Friendship

It is time to walk down the memory lane again to bring to mind those sweet, happy, and sad but worth-sharing memories. I would like to share this one memorable photo that started a friendship between me and ate Therz after uploading it on Friendster. Yes, it happened during the friendster era. Also, this ‘share’ is kind of delicious too…why?


It’s a picture taken at a Jolly-Kiddy Party I attended with the hub! This was taken way back in 2008 I think. Yes, it was 2008 because I surely was married in this size of me in the picture. Haist, see what my husband did to me? He turned me into a…fine… not-so-huge whale but still a whale.

Anyway, this very picture above brought back memories of friendship. That’s the picture that started the friendship between me and ate Therz through a social networking site, Friendster.

See our conversation below:

Ate Therz was the wife of hubby’s friend (an ex-wife now). By the time we met online, she was at the US working while the husband stayed in the Philippines watching over their home construction located not very far from where we lived then. I liked her. She was so warm and friendly that we became friends at a blink. It was fun talking to her esp. when we talked about our other half. I knew she was happy about her husband then but later we heard a bad news that they were breaking up. It happened after she came to the Philippines for a vacation. It was also the first time we met personally, would be the last. She found someone in the US and was reported pregnant. Since then, she stopped talking to me online.

I didn’t know why she stopped contacting me but I had a feeling she was shy or just didn’t feel like talking to me. As a woman and a wife who’s currently undergoing bad issues in marriage  I can understand her.  She sure has one good reason why she left the hubby’s friend and whatever the reason was, I respect it.  I still like her and I will treasure the online friendship we once had.

Dreaming of A White Christmas

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I’m listening to this song right now. It’s funny, instead of being merry while listening to this song, I am feeling gloomy inside…and then there goes the tears running down.

Haist, here’s me again, dreaming of a white Christmas but it seems like that my Christmas is going to be blue again this year. It will surely be as blue as what I truly feel inside. Not that it is only blue, it is as well empty. It is breaking my hurt, that thinking. I’ll make sure though that when Christmas eve comes, I’ll show the sweetest smile and burst the happiest laugh among us here.

Okay, pardon me. I am in a melancholic mood right now.  Just right now. It happens when I remember someone special (even though he…tsk never mind). You can’t blame me. It is just that the Christmas this year will be the third Christmas I’ll celebrate without the husband. Although I am with my family, it would be nicer to have him celebrate Christmas with me, with us. I hope that he’ll have the merriest White Christmas this year.

To those who are going to have a white Christmas, I also hope you’ll have the merriest one. Enjoy it and spend it with your family.

I am linking this picture to 366 Blog Photo Challenge and Wednesday Whites.

I Am Excited, So I Paint My Nails Red

It is already December 1. Hmn…Christmas has just officially started, eh? There are three things about December that excite me. First, my birthday falls on the month; three days before Christmas. I would say I am lucky for being born on December, much more on the closer date to Christmas for I can celebrate my birthday along with it, as I have been. Second, the Christmas of course, and/or the Christmas eve, the most joyful time of year. Just by the sound of the word “Christmas” brings a lot of joyfulness in the heart. Third, the alumni homecoming. I was informed the alumni homecoming this year is different from the previous years or from the usual. It was said there’ll be a 3-day alumni homecoming celebration. I am excited as early as now!

Although I do not feel much of the spirit of Christmas yet here in our place, particularly in this block where I live, I am still excited and looking forward to those upcoming events. And even though financially struggling, it shouldn’t hinder everyone to feel the joy of the nearing day of the Savior’s birthday. Since I am excited, I had my nails painted today having Christmas in mind.

Mama called her “suking manicurista” or  frequented manicurist + pedicurist  to fix her toenail ingrown today.  She only calls her when she has ingrown problem. Although I was not happy about the real reason why the suki was here, I was happy that mother had my nails done too and paid for it. She had my nails done before hers for she likes it when the person is fixing her nails in no rush.  It seldom happens as my mother is naturally a cheapskate, so I nodded to the invitation with big grin. It’s been a while since my nails received that kind of pampering.

Here’s the nails. The suki didn’t do a neat job but I didn’t mind the clutter. I had my nails done after several months and it was all that matters.  I had on two different shades of reds on both finger and toenails.

Fuchsia Twinkle on right and Guns N Roses on the left.  Same goes with the toenails.  Oh, please excuse the ugly feet.

These two shades both come with glitters in the bottle. I find the colors pretty and very Christmasy; perfect to wear on the first day of December, to meet the joy it will bring.  This is enough proof how excited I am about December despite all the trials we are facing.

I am sharing this to 366 Blog Photo Challenge hosted this month by Sis Jess of  K and His Tools.
