this is my daughter's blogger header i created a few hours ago.
i've encouraged both my daughters to create their own blog so they can explore their artistic side,
express themselves, get hooked with writing and reading whether a book or a blog,
and get connected with other bloggers, but most importantly i want them to have fun with it.
i consider blogging as a tool to reach out to your teens. a place where you can share,
exchange ideas, and appreciate common things. 
now, isn't that nice and fun to do?

create your own blog and share with your family!

blogging can be an art, not just for geeks and writers. 

never left your side

repost: to the one that holds her heart

i came across this awesome entry and i just had to repost it. enjoy!

 To the one that holds her heart,

This is going to sound so very cliche, but if you break her heart, I will run you over with my car. Now I’m pretty sure you have no idea who I am, but trust me I know all about you. You see, I have many friends, in many places. And I just wanted to make sure that the one who is dating the girl that I love with all my heart is in good hands. Since you have not received any threats yet, I guess you’re an alright guy.

But here’s a couple tips for you, always text her back, she gets really frustrated if you don’t. Don’t ever hang up on her without saying good-bye first, I’ve done that countless times and she gets really pissed off. She has certain days where she has to watch her shows like Pretty Little Liars and One Tree hill, make sure you don’t plan anything on those days. Surprise her, she likes them. She’s only ticklish in some spots and sometime she isn’t ticklish at all. She’s a fighter haha. And if she’s quoting Taylor Swift, either you’re in really big trouble or you’re making her happy.

And when you hug her, remember that you are hugging the most beautiful girl in the world and that you should always hug her back tighter. If she argues with you, argue back. But give in to her sometimes cause she can be a real bitch when she wants to be. Don’t hurt her, that will be the worst thing that you will ever do.

You have no idea how lucky you are to call her yours. So cherish it. You have the honor of holding her hand. You have the privilege to kiss her when you want. You have the ability to make her happy. She isn’t just another girl, she’s that girl that can make you the happiest person ever if you give her the chance. She’s worth everything. Everything. Take care of her.


The one who lost her


the birthday girl, rada! (exhausted)

rada's birthday last march 23 at villa filomena resort.
pictures were edited by me using picnik.com.
sadly our camera broke that day that's why i wasn't able to take more photos,
there were blurred shots taken and i did a little artistic touch with it so i could post something at least.

and here is a video of cheska doubtful if
she could swim towards her ate.
exactly like me at that age scared of the water.

wishin' everyone a lovely day!

just another rainy day

are we officially in rainy season yet? it's slowly been raining and this could only mean one thing, monsoon season has arrived. technically it started a couple of weeks ago when we had rain for like four days in a row and then it stopped and was sunny ever since. then after a gloomy forecast earlier this week, i thought things would turn around because there was no sign of a typhoon coming as forecasted. but when i woke up this morning it was already raining and it thundered a little. what a fickle minded weather we have! don't you just love the sound of the rain and the cold wind it makes you want to stay in bed all day?

have a wonderful rainy weekend! for sure mine is
with lots of movies, cooking, snacks and giggles with the family, oh, and a pile of laundry.

monday blues

i began my day feeling grumpy maybe because i woke up feeling very hot, my lower back aches, and i still feel a little pain on my right foot. i recently had an accident and sprained my ankle and now have a huge lump on the right side of it and a bruise on the other side. it's been only four days since that stupid accident happened and it still hurts when i walk. i was told it usually takes a couple of weeks to heal.

right now we are getting ready to go to a swimming party for kids, however, i am not all that excited given my current physical condition, and because we have to pay for the resort's entrance fee. what a bummer right? it's a bit of a problem as i have limited amount of money to spend for the whole week so i don't know how i would go about that today. oh well, this kind of situations are usually what i don't want to write about on my blog.

anyways, i have to end this post already because my girls are rushing me to leave now. i will post pictures when i get back.

what is your theme?

hello! i hope you made the best of your weekend and hopefully all of us will face another beautiful day tomorrow. this week seemed to be very long because of the ridiculous weather we had each and every day. the heat is still killing me, but i am thankful God had poured us some rain this week, and hopefully summer will be over soon. anyhoo, for my post, i'm thinking i should start creating a theme each day and just redo it every week. like this for example:

sunday - sunday bonday - occasions and stuff that involves my family and people close to my heart.
monday- monday blues - feelings and thoughts, and because i hate mondays, i'm usually grouchy and sad on this particular day.
tuesday- tuesday treasures & treats
wednesday- wediscoveries about fashion, food, and whatever else i stumble upon.
thursday- dreamy thursday
friday- friday i'm inlove- features everything i love and admire, and things i'm obsessed with.
saturday- saturday arts and interiors

hmmm, i don't necessarily have to do this permanently, i just need to see if it will make things easier for me to decide what to blog. so beginning next week, i will follow these themes. ciao!
