Flood in Manila...

I was watching Fox News this weekend when they flash a news about the flood in Manila. I was so shocked about how the water rise so quickly and the rain didn't stop for more than a day??? So I immediately search in Youtube if there are some videos taken by locals and I was not wrong there are so many in there that by watching it makes me sad. Yesterday hubby told me that the death rises to more than a 100 already, I was shocked again and thinking about the people living under the bridge, along the rivers, it won't be any doubt that the death toll will rise dramatically. I pray and hope that there will be no more deaths or missing people. Will pray.

Remembering my Papa....

Today, September 22 is my Papa's 20th year death anniversary.

I remember my father as a very cheerful man. I never see him frown nor heard him being grouchy. He always has his flashing smile na makikita mo ang kanyang gold tooth hehe. He is the one who teached me how to cook yup, not my mama. He is a good cook and so am I hehe.

One time, we went to Cebu and as far as I could remember it is just me and my papa. I really don't know what we do in Cebu but what I remember too well is that we went to this building they called it White Gold which at that time is so famous with there revolving chair or table. I was so amazed with the view but I was so happy and excited to go home when papa bought me a set of toys. Those set of toys consist of lechon2x, pots and pans, forks and spoons, plates and glass. I was so proud of it I thought I am the only one who got that kind of toys in our neighborhood hehe.

I remember him came to my PTA meeting I was surprised when I saw him at the back of…

A farewell party...

Last Tuesday, Cathy and I went to a friends house to attend a farewell party of one of our friend here in MI. Abby and her family are going to transfer in the state of Kansas. She will be leaving this September 20 so we decided to have a farewell party for her. Here are the pictures.

Oh diba stunning mga beauteous nang mga pinay dito sa MI hehe. Anyway ganda nang frontground (hinde background) namin ano puro inuming makakatumba. In fairness naman we see to it na may designated driver talaga at di naman masyadong marami ang alcohol dyan lol! And what I am holding there (margarita) I didn't drink it props ko lang yan char!! What I like is the pena colada because of the coconut taste of it. And my last shot ito!!

Guess ano yan lol!!

A busy weekend.....

This post is a kind of late though but I think better had a post here than nothing at all lol! Anyhow, this last weekend we are kind of busy. Remember earlier I had an enrty about cancer and death, well my husbands cousin Linda died of lung cancer and my across the road neihbor died too. So last Thursday in the afternoon we went to the funeral home for a visit for our neighbor and Friday we went to Lapeer for my husbands cousin Linda for her wake. Friday we came home around 9pm already I was too sleepy and tired already. The next day Saturday, both of the deceased burial schedule are the same, so hubby decided that we will just go to the interment of his cousin Linda and will just later go in the afternoon for an Irish vigil for our deceased neighbor. By 10:00 am we are already in the road going to Lapeer at 11am the serviced started at about 12noon we are heading to the cemetery. After in the cemetery we headed to another church for a dinner.  By 2:00 pm we are still in the church hal…

Today is September 11, and eight years ago something unfathomable happened here in America the twin towers in NY were being hit by two different planes, the pentagon and etc. Today is the day of remembering and mourning for thousands of innocent lives was cut off by terrorist. But where was I when this things happened? It was early morning here in America at that time just a few minutes after 9o'clock. I was in the Philippines at that time ( 9 PM) I was inside the internet cafe emailing my fiance (my hubby now) when all of a sudden over at the counter of the internet cafe I heard shouting and screaming so I and some of the people at the cubicles stand up and gathered around the counter and watched the TV!! There I saw two planes hit the twin towers I couldn't believed what I saw! I had a goosebumps all over me I thought at that time this could be the beginning of the 3rd world war. It was terrifying to watched and what transpire after that. I asked hubby about where he was at …

Cancer and death....

This entry is kind of sad I hate to post an entry that is full of negativity because in one way or another it affect me and the readers but though life is wonderful and beautiful along the way there is always trials, heartaches, pains and sufferings. In other words in every rose there is always a thorns but hopefully you or I is not the thorns on somebodies life but the roses hehehehe. Yesterday, our across the road neighbor which happened to be my step-sons wife Uncle died. We really don't know what he die for but we knew that after he/they came from Peru for some mission ( I don't know if it is medical) they got all sick!! Their were 20 people of them who went to that country but all of them got sick except 2 people. They said they think maybe it is about swine flu but they get rid of that and then they treated him of pneumonia then I guess it complicates then later he died. It was kind of sad because him and his wife are close to us too. Then at the reunion last Monday we h…

Westview Orchard and Cider Mill

Today is kind of hectic or shall I say a busy day. I am supposed to go to my friends house for movie night out but hubby wanted to visit his Aunt and Uncle at Lapeer. We were at Lapeer for awhile and when we are about to leave I saw this advertisement in the newspaper about peaches in Romeo, Michigan. I asked hubby if he likes to go to Romeo he said yes and so off we go and with the help of our tomtom gps navigation we arrived at Romeo safe and sound. I like the town though, it is clean and neat  many  people were walking around town because it is the towns Peach festival, all the parking lots were full of cars but we didn't stop at the town rather we went to Westview Orchard and cider Mill a couple of miles going south from the town. When we get there I was amaze how huge is the farm I even didn't see the apple orchard nor the peach trees. After hubby park the car we went immediately to there bakery, where I find  people lining up to get there pies, cinnamon rolls, peach doug…

Hubby called me late this afternoon that we are going out for a dinner with his son and his son's wife. Well I remember it is Friday and we have a restaurant close by that cook good fish chips. Around 6 pm we were headed to the restaurant and when we were there it smells fish good fish ^_^ So when the waitress came to take the orders I of course ordered the perch fish chips, with salad and french fries. But aside from the tartar that they usually dip their fish I asked for the vinegar kind of odd huh but not me!! LOL! Here is what I got. We were in the driveway when I smell something really really good. Hubby point to me the full moon how nice it is to look at and how God made it so perfectly when all of a sudden I smell a really really good scent. I thought it was kind of a perfume worn by somebody but we are just alone in our driveway. Then I remember my DAMA de NOche!! Yesss it exudes good scent at night and hubby kept on smelling at it, as I  explain  to him why it is called Da…

It's SeptemBER 1 today! I remember when this day arrived my mother used to play Christmas songs. One time I asked her why she played Christmas song on September 1 and she answered me it is because Christmas is just around the corner. And today just of know where I played a Christmas songs too. It was not a Christmas song that makes me depressed or kind of slow music but I played the cha-cha version of Christmas music hehe. It makes me dance and remember my mother today. Anyhow, before tears starts to run down the cheeks I took a picture of my 3 year old clothes line. I washed some of the towels and pants and put it outside to dry out. Thankfully though the weather is a bit cold but the sun is up so it get dry.
