Project K 4… definitely not the last… (Matungao Bulacan)


My Goal: Laugh Some More!


Why should I take life seriously? Laughter is good for the heart! and for enriching my time with kids! My 7-year old delivered some jokes… it gave me good laughs! Samples:
1. Why couldn’t the sailors play cards? … Ans: Because the captain was standing on the deck…
2. What did the jar of mayo say to the refrigerator door? Ans… “Close the door, i’m dressing!”
3. What’s in the middle of the ocean? Ans… letter “e”
4. Why did the ghost join the cheer squad? Ans… to add a little team spirit!
5. Why was the math book sad? Ans… because it had too many problems!

Please bear with me… if it’s corny… I laughed actually on how my Lean delivered them, and how I tried to come up with my answers…

Nyahahaha… 🙂 🙂

Picture Moment#11: My Pinggz!


see how Lean grows through the years. He is so cute and sweet. and until now he remains as sweet as ever! He is a very thoughtful boy. I love him to bits that sometimes I treat him still like a toddler (and he still acts one sometimes)….
Love You Lean!

Half-full or Half-empty….


I have a story to tell.
Back in 1993, we “adopted” a 6-month old tiny girl, she was the darling to us! Everybody in the family is her “nanay” (mother), ninang (godmother), ninong (godfather), ate or kuya (siblings). We think we pampered her, gave her, if not everything, anything we could. She has a share of love and care from everybody in the family, but she has a share of our reprimands, too. Because we treat her as family…. because she is. Admittedly, she is not everybody’s priority (because we have our own family), but i’m sure, everybody just love her as our own.
Fast-track 2009, now she’s 16. Confused, disoriented, devoid of purpose, selfish, silent, and…. lonely!
Just recently, she left home that made everybody annoyed (why does she has to do such thing), then after 2 days, it made everybody worried! (she is not street-smart, and hoped nothing bad happened), then after 4 days when somebody told us where she is, it made us mad again (why is she so inconsiderate?)
Her reasons are very confusing… (about college, about getting everybody into trouble, about her being adopted, etc…), but bottom-line I feel she feels she does not “belong” and she is confused!
Now, she is with me and I will try to make her realize that we can be happy if we choose to be happy! I hope to mentor her that life is not as bad as she thinks…. That life is how we make it!
To remind her to see the good things in life, like a glass half-full of water….. (rather than seeing it as half-empty!) …. good luck to me!

Picture Moment #9: Aliya… One…


my aliya, age:one, future artist (or accountant or architect… all up to her). our aliya, our princess, our blessing, our precious gem!
We thought we will never got a chance to have you! It’s been seven years since your Kuya Lean. We almost thought we stopped there! But there is really a longing for a baby girl like you! The moment we knew you were coming, we were so excited! Nothing can compare the rewarding feeling! We love you and we hope we could be good parents to you!
