meet me on monday – 28th edition


1.  What are your New Year’s Eve plans?
2.  How tall are you?
3.  What is your favorite pudding flavor?
4.  What room of the house do you blog the most in?
5.  What is your best physical feature?
my answes:
1. having a household with four struggling cooks can be quite a hassle especially on occasions  such as the new year’s eve and whipping up a feast can be quite a daunting task. i terribly miss the good ol’ days when mama would cook up a fiesta all by herself, with little (e.g. chopping, stirring) or no assistance from me. i miss those days when all i have to do is clean the dishes after stuffing myself with all the scrumptious meals my mum had prepared…oh well, some things never change, i still end up doing the dishes anyway. so this year, to enjoy the new year’s eve with my son, i intend to order takeaway, less hassle and hopefully lesser dishes to wash.
2. i am 5 feet 4 inches tall.
3. it’s hands down to chocolate pudding but i’d love to try other flavors, too!
4. for now i am stationery, meaning bound to my ever-reliable desktop which holds house in my son’s room. so you can only imagine jared’s protest whenever i go online or try to blog during playtime or when he is watching his favorite pocoyo or barney vid. my attempt is normally greeted with tugs and pulls at my shirt or is sometimes thwarted with a quick stubby finger to the power button…hopefully i can earn or save enough to buy meself a laptop soon…hmm, maybe in 2011!
5. i’d have to say my dimples and my smile!
that’s me all smiles after watching an incubus concert…
note: this post is several days delayed, pardon me!

music monday – Everything by lifehouse

Find Me Here
Speak To Me
I want to feel you
I need to hear you
You are the light
That’s leading me
To the place where I find peace again.

You are the strength, that keeps me walking.
You are the hope, that keeps me trusting.
You are the light to my soul.
You are my purpose…you’re everything.

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

You calm the storms, and you give me rest.
You hold me in your hands, you won’t let me fall.
You steal my heart, and you take my breath away.
Would you take me in? Take me deeper now?

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

Cause you’re all I want, You’re all I need
You’re everything,everything
You’re all I want your all I need
You’re everything, everything.
You’re all I want you’re all I need.
You’re everything, everything
You’re all I want you’re all I need, you’re everything, everything.

And How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
this is one of my all-time favorite songs, very inspirational, touching and moving. i listen to this song whenever my soul needs some uplifting….it is like my it has turned into the tune where i glorify my parents…it is also the best song for my son, i use to sing this to him as a lullaby.

meet me on monday 27th edition


1.  What will your Christmas dinner consist of?
2.  Do you watch commercials or flip through the channels?
3.  How long will you leave your Christmas decorations up?
4.  What movie makes you cry every time you watch it?
5.  Do you have a Facebook?

my answers:
1. well, hopefully lots of food!the task of creating a decent noche buena (that is christmas eve feast in our vernacular) is quite daunting for us non-cooks! i remember when i tried to cook pasta with tuna and white sauce two christmases ago and the sauce turned into this paste-like, glue-like substance and everyone else refuses to eat more than a single helping. i vowed not to cook again. but of course, things changed when i had my baby, with cooking prowess or not, i must learn at least the rudiments to be able to provide healthy and hopefully delicious meals to my growing baby boy. now back to this year’s feast, we will be having the usual staples: pasta, barbeque, maybe potato salad, clubhouse sandwich, grilled hotdogs, my birthday boy bro is requesting for grilled prawns and other seafoods, so we will see how the feast turn out this year. plus we also have to include soup for the little boy.
2. normally i just can’t stand the ads and am a flipping-channel maniac that my father used to be very annoyed when we watched television shows together. but jared has taken quite a liking to shampoo ads that i can’t flip through the channels like a rabid and have to wait till those commercials are over.
3. just until the first week of january, then it’s boxing time for the lovely tree and i’ll try to store the trimmings in an organized fashion so i won’t have a hard time locating them next year…
4. i am really such a cry baby that a lot of movies i’ve seen either moved me to tears or actually made me cry, the latest of which was harry potter and the deathly hallows, especially that part when dobby die. i was sobbing so hard my friend has to ask me if i was fine….
5. yes, i’ve been on facebook for more than a year now, and i am online almost everyday. i was particularly addicted to cafeworld and is currently at work with my treat for kids catering task, anyone willing to give me mini santa’s?

A Perfect Christmas By: Jose Mari Chan (With Lyrics)

this is one of my most favorite christmas songs of all time. it reminds me of my parents when they were still around…my papa has a cassette tape (yeah, that old school!) of all his favorite christmas carols which he would play as early as the first day of december arrives…this will be the fourth year that we will be spending the holidays without my parents, i miss them more each i wish they were able to see my son….it will be a perfect christmas if we can spend it with them…

mommy moments: give love on christmas day

is it a blessing or a curse that jared is not big enough to tell me what he wants for christmas? i know that these days are numbered and i might as well cherish and relish them while they are here. and though i will have to be creative yet again to find the most suitable gift for my son and hopefully the one he will enjoy the most, i will know by his giggles and by him having a grand time playing with his new toy that i have found the perfect one.

i wanted to buy him something educational since we will be starting with his learning activities next year so i got these set of brainy baby board books for him to read, browse and of course, seems to me his most favorite thing to do with his books, chew! and i throw in these nice flash cards for additional learning and fun.

i also wanted to buy him these eco-friendly toy ever since i saw it from indigo baby’s site but this one’s good for kids three years and up so i still have two more years before i can finally purchase it for my son, good for me so i can have more time to save for it.

i also wanted to get him some of these stackable toys. he is beginning to take interest in assembling parts of things and he was using his powder container, cotton buds cup as guinea pigs and i noticed he really digs this activity. 
i still have a few more days to go and a few more trips to the mall so we’ll see, if i see something that catches my eye and my son’s fancy, and if the purse will permit it, i might buy him something else.
and yes, lastly, i vow to give my undivided attention as a gift to my son for the incoming year, i know that mum has been preoccupied with blogging, the home chores and whatnot, and her ever demanding cafeworld game on facebook, but the growing baby needs much more attention in the future and i will be up to the task.
