Nothing like a good swim to wash all the stress away

Boracay June 2010

This is one my fave shots ever!

P.S. I now owe this blog 3 posts. Lessons learned, blogging every day is kind of hard to do! Hahaha, will try make up for it later today. Toodle doo!


Happy Father’s Day!

It’s father’s day today and I want to dedicate this post to my Poopsie dearest. Happy Father’s day PAPA! I love you so much, you know that right? I will always value what you have taught me about everything. Much of who I am is because of how you and Mama raised me so thank you for that. I hope to pass on the gift of being “bata ni rene” to my own children someday, growing up believing in yourself and that you can do anything you put your mind to.

I always get a little weepy when I think about Poopsie, I don’t know why. Although it may seem like we have our misunderstandings I do love him immensely and I’m always thankful of how lucky we are to have him as a father. Papa taught me how to ride a bike (“dire diretso lang”), drive a car (“hinay hinay lang!”), shoot an airgun (“steady lang”), take photos (“d ka mag hulag/ginhawa”), be sociable (“migu-miguha lang ah”), and believe in myself (“bata ka ni Rene!”). We were a little bit spoiled, but not so much. We were disciplined properly, and not hurt physically. We were not super rich, but Papa provided what we needed and what we wanted. Papa is a cool guy and a good person, I am proud to be his daughter.

They say that having bad parents will make you a good parent when you have kids. That worries me because I have awesome parents! Poops,  I will do everything in my power to be the best mother to my kids someday, that will be my gift to you.

NBA Finals 2010: Halftime thoughts from a seasonal fan

Every time I watch the NBA, it’s mostly only during the Finals. In the heyday of the Bulls with Jordan, Poopsie used to watch the games live in our living room in Iloilo, turning up the volume of the TV really high. Daw fiesta!

Since B is a big fan, I started to watch again this time rooting for the Lakers. I mean they’re almost the underdogs because Kobe gets a lot of flack for being hambog or too cocky. Well nobody can really deny he’s SUPER good, he’s like a basketball demigod! I don’t think he’s not a team player, in Game 5 for example he was carrying the whole team with 38 pts and the rest of his mates only got 9 pts max. Anyhoo, I’m just a seasonal fan what do I know right? Hehe.

Unfortunately, Kobe’s game is a bit off in Game 7 during the first half. I’m just praying praying he turns on his awesomeness to win this thang! Go Kobeeeee!

Update: Well, my man Kobe made up for the shooting deficit with 15 REBOUNDS! There’s no denying it, he really really wanted the ring, and he GOT IT! Wooootttt! Enjoyed watching the Finals, from Game 3 to 7. GO Lakers! Next year again for the 3-peat!

365 days of blogging

So I’ve been thinking about getting back into the blogosphere and I think there’s no better way to do it like committing to 365 days of postings! Of course to make life eaisier I decided to allow for posts from my iPod touch. Alrayt!

Day 1 here we go…
