Nice Weekend

Last weekend, we went to the farm. Some friends went with us. We brought with us a friend from Switzerland. Our Swiss friend took some picture and I believe he also enjoyed the visit. Take a look at some of the picture. 

I cooked french fries since the kids love it and the Swiss too!

The house in the farm is not yet done. a lot of work need to be done. I just hope it will be completed this year.

Last February, I posted New Member. The new members were Duke and Wooch. 

When I was in Manila, my brother texted me. He told me that Wooch passed away because Wooch was bitten by a cobra. I was really crying when I learned what Wooch did. My brother told me that while he was watering the vegetables at the farmWooch was behind him, following him wherever he goes. Later he heard Wooch barking but he just continued walking and watering, then Wooch stopped barking and my brother sensed something was wrong. When he turned around, he saw Wooch lying helplessly, he immediately grab Wooch but a cobra already struck Wooch. My brother ran and apply some medication to counter the venom but it was useless . The cobra's venom was so strong. If it was not for Wooch, my brother would have been bitten by that cobra instead. You see he protected my brother. Wooch risked his life just to be loyal to my brother. So you see how sad it is. That is why I really love dogs. They are so loyal. Truly a man's bestfriend!

To prevent such incident from happening again, we decided to cut all the grasses around. Now my brother regularly trim all the grasses to drive away the snakes.

I have been browsing and reading blogs to get some tips as to how to lose weight. I really need to lose because I know being fat or obese is not healthy. A lot of diseases are attached to obesity such as heart ailment and hypertension.

I have already read a few but the usual and best advice are still (1) To eat right kind and right amount of food and (2) Exercise. 

So I would really need to find time to exercise to bring back my 36-27-36 size or just even close to that size. I hope I can really reduce my weight without taking those reducing pills or even undergoing surgery. I need to set my goals tomorrow and should really work hard. Whew! I hope and I believe I can!

The Place I've Stayed

When I was away from home, I have stayed and lived in the 29th floor in one of the condominiums in Rockwell. It was a very nice and safe place to stay. There are a lot of estate police who are ready to be of assistance especially in crossing the street. I can say that it was a good place to stay but it was not the best because my family was not with me.

A lot of foreigners are also staying in Rockwell. I guess it is due to the comfort and safety why a lot of foreigners are staying there.

Take a glimpse at the room I have stayed.

As I was jokingly told my husband, it was a very nice prison for me. I was trapped in it for 6 months. I never had a chance to really enjoy the place because I was so focused in my studies. All I did was just to look out to see the formation of clouds when my head was not that cooperative anymore. And sad to say, I was not able to take a splash in the pool! :-(

I wish we could own of the units, alas, it was so expensive!

Love they say covers a multitude of sin. Others say that even water can never extinguished love. Still other say "Love is Blind". Do you believe in the latter quote? I don't. I believe that love is not blind, lovers instead are blind. Do you agree?

Love also plays a major role in marriage. It keeps the marriage going and keep the couple happy and contented. I believe love is always necessary yet complicated.

As I browse my facebook, a friend of mine share the story below I hope you will enjoy reading it the way I do. Lessons can also be learned in the foregoing. Enjoy!


During one of our seminars, a woman asked a common question. She said, "How do I know if I married the right person?"
I noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so I said, "It depends. Is that your husband?"
In all seriousness, she answered "How do you know?"

Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it's weighing on your mind.

Here's the answer.
EVERY relationship has a cycle. In the beginning, you fell in love with your spouse/partner. You anticipated their call, wanted their touch, and liked their idiosyncrasies (unconventional behavior/habit) .

Falling in love with your spouse wasn't hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience.
You didn't have to DO anything. That's why it's called "falling" in love... Because it's happening TO YOU.

People in love sometimes say, "I was swept of my feet." Think about the imagery of that __expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something came along and happened TO YOU.

Falling in love is easy. It's a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few years of marriage, the euphoria (excitement) of love fades. It's the natural cycle of EVERY relationship. Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse's idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts.

The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship, but if you think about your marriage, you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.

At this point, you and/or your spouse might start asking, "Did I marry the right person?"
And as you and your spouse reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else.
This is when marriages or relationship breakdown. People blame their spouse/partner for their unhappiness and look outside their marriage/relationsh ip for fulfillment.

Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes. Infidelity is the most obvious.
But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, excessive TV, or abusive substances.

But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your marriage. It lies within it.
I'm not saying that you couldn't fall in love with someone else.
You could.

And TEMPORARILY you'd feel better. But you'd be in the same situation a few years later. Because (listen carefully to this):


SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. It'll NEVER just happen to you. You can't "find" LASTING love. You have to "make" it day in and day out. That's why we have the __expression "the labor of love." Because it takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it takes WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make your marriage/relationsh ip work. Sure true love can only happen after you've fallen out of love. When you begin choosing to love, even if you don't feel like doing it ---- that's true love. And that's the foundation of a lasting and strong marriage.

Make no mistake about it. Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your spouse) to succeed with your marriage.

Just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships.
Just as the right diet and exercise program makes you physically stronger, certain habits in your relationship WILL make your marriage stronger.
It's a direct cause and effect. If you know and apply the laws, the results are predictable. .. you can "make"love.

Love is indeed a "decision".. . Not just a feeling. You'll not just go away with your relationship just because the feeling is gone. In the Bible, love is a command. You make it happen.

Remember this always:

"God determines who walks into your life. It is up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go."
FW: Ruth Beltran

"Marriage is more than saying I Do. Marriage, like a precious plant, needs constant tending for it to grow, flourish, and bear fruti to last a lifetime, and beyond."
-David and Evelyn Feliciano

The Bar

The bar was an experience that I will never want to repeat. Life was so boring yet so busy. Reading at least 10 to 12 hours a day and just have to sleep at least 3 to 4 hours a day. But those hours of reading were not enough to cover all the 8 subjects. The time spent was so lacking. I was really trying to catch up with my readings but to no avail until September came. The fearsome 4 Sundays of September.

The First Sunday was so tough and I tell you as Sundays goes by, it gets tougher! I guess it was really unforgettable. The First Sunday, when I went to La Salle University in Taft Avenue, I barely slept for 1 hour, I think. Then The unexpected questions . . . it was so hard. The hardest exam I ever took. Then came the last Sunday. The questions were still very hard! And as we were lining up to go out, came a blast. We thought it was just fire crackers but it was a bomb. Two law students lost their legs.

You see my 6 months was so undescribable and so agonizing. What adds to my agony is the result of the exam. I believe it will be released next year sometime in March or April 2011. I just hope I was able to make it. So that I would not have to repeat the same experience again.
