Behind a Daughter's strength is a love of a Mother

August 14, 2008 this was the date when I posted a blog about a friend who has Polycystic Ovaries. A friend who put all her strength to triumph the emotional, mental and physical battles she encountered on her great desire to conceive a child.The medication per se was not easy since the medicine for her PCOS often triggered her other illness which is GERD yet she did her best to bear all the discomfort. Faith and prayers were her light whenever her path started to grow dim.May 10, 2009 Mother’s Day, she was in the seashore with her hubby watching the moonlight glowing to the serene sea. She closed her eyes and whispered “Happy Mother’s Day Ma.” hoping her mom was around so she could hug and kiss her. Captivated by the view of the moonlight she took a picture, she knew her hand shook a bit while she took the picture but to her amazement the reflection formed a heart shape. She’s not a superstitious lady but still she wants to interpret it as an answer of her mother’s day greetings to her mom who already passed away 8 years ago.
With this, she gained more strength as she realized that though her parents are gone, somehow they let her feel that they know what she’s going through and that they trust her valiance in any given adversities.

An angel over the rainbow

"The Notebook" was the only movie that I shed tears, I'm not a cry-baby apparently. I felt emontional on some movies though, but still I didn't cry 'til I saw The Notebook.

And I can't imagined just a minute ago when I watched this video,my tears just suddenly ran down to my cheeks...

...not just the song, not just the innocent face but I guess it's also her pure heart that goes with her angelic voice. It's great that this little girl chooses to pursue her talent and interest in singing.

Are you a Shoe Addict?

Do you consider a pair of shoes marked down from $750 to $450 a great deal? Do you talk to your shoes as if they were people? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then welcome to the club.

We embrace you with open arms and empty wallets.
If you are not a member, let me try to explain. The first inkling I had that I might have a "shoe problem" was when I moved into my first Manhattan apartment after college. My rent left me with little to no extra income for shopping and dining out, so every penny had to be accounted for. I started off with every intention of "budgeting wisely" as my parents had instructed. But then I saw "them." It was like destiny, being struck by a bolt of lightning, love at first sight. They were a pair of black patent-leather, pointy-toe pumps with a stacked wooden heel, and they cost hundreds of dollars. They spoke to me. They didn't say, "We're too expensive for you." They purred, "Hey, stranger, what's a fashionable girl like you doing without a shoe like us?" They were way above my price range, but my common sense evaporated and what I call "retail reasoning" kicked in. They were expensive, yes, but they were an investment, right? I mean, my parents wanted me to think about my future, and here, right in front of me, was a pair of amazing shoes that I knew I had a future with. I bought them and ate beans and rice for a month. That was the beginning.......


I could relate to her story...uhu!
Am I a shoe addict? Well, uhmm I guess but if there's such thing as "moderate shoe addict" that's me then. But I guess the important thing is you still know how to handle your finances well.

...choose and spend wisely

A Valentine Present

My hubby and I are miles away. Was so confused on what to give him for present, but he actually keeps on telling me this "Your love is always present in every air that I breathe and that is always a wonderful present."

Still I desire to give him something and I came up with this, hoping he would appreciate...Broadcasting My Love for HIM on YOUTUBE ;)

(there are some typo error though, I made it 12:00 am of Feb.14, my eyes were already heavy to do editing ;)
