Celebrated the birthday of my grandmother, Daisy Hontiveros Avellana who is also our National Artist for Theater ... and she is now ninety five years old!

When we sang her a birthday song she said, "How old am i?", we said "La, you are now 95."
She said "Boy, i am old." and smiled proudly.

Yes, there is really so much to be proud about ... she has been living a rich life, filled with achievement, accolades, fulfilled dreams and success. She is very loved by her children, in-laws and especially her grand and great grandchildren.

We love you, Lola Daisy, Happy 95th birthday! :)

Me and my Lola :)

My Time

I always go to the mall to buy the kids clothes and what-have-yous and come to think of it i don't do much shopping for myself, specifically for clothes. I have been stuck in the rut with my wardrobe that i actually did not even think of updating my look. But, yesterday while walking along the clothes section, i found some interesting pieces that i actually want to own. Finally, something for myself, so i hurriedly tried a few things and before i knew it i had a handful with me and was at the cashier.

I guess i am giving in this time, my turn.

I know it will be a long time again before i go and buy myself some things again, so i guess this is worth the giving in.

2012 was greeted with fireworks and the love and warmth of family. This is what is important and what counts above all. My family has always and will always be my constant unhappiness and when i am with them everything feels alright.

This is one of our first moments as we welcome the new year :)

Back Ache

I have a tremendous back pain, and must as i hate to admit it, it really bothering me. I am trying so hard to stand up straight to maybe straighten it as a form of exercise, but the pain is unbearable. Christian last night massaged it with liniment, and it relieved me for some time, enough for me to get some sleep, but like i said it was temporary.

I don't know if it caused by my posture or i woke up on the wrong side of the bed.

Wish the pain will go away really soon.

Great Finds

I just love what i find on the internet whenever i search and browse through different sites. The things you can see are actually endless. I have been able to join a lot of online blog contests and i sometimes am lucky enough to win. My usual winnings are girly stuff, like make up, lotion and knick knacks, i yearn for the day when i get some more cool stuff like some barnes & noble coupons, that would really be a great find!

There is actually a site where they give away a lot of things when you answer a short survey, i haven't actually participated in any, but maybe i will as soon as i get the time to do it.

I heart the internet, there are a lot of cool FREE stuff just waiting for the picking!
