amazing Piatot

happy new year! my goodness, it’s been really a while since my last post here, so much had happened and stuff still keeps happening hahaha

anyways, I just had to share this one, otherwise I might forget about this..

yesterday, Piatot and I went to our evening worship service. She was still recuperating from 3 consecutive days of fever so I really expected she would just sit still until the service finishes. I was surprised when she jump from her seat and join a group of kids her age playing.

They were just quietly playing from the start until an elder kid joined them and started showing off her toys that she’d brought with her. They were amazed by her mini dolls and acted like they would want to borrow it from that kid. Unfortunately, the kid didn’t want to hand them her toys. This is what I heard from their convo

A (batang 1 month younger than Pia: Peram ako isa lang!

Pia (she was quietly looking at the kid’s mini dolls and she has that look that she wants to borrow it too but she didn’t reach for it)

Elder S (4-5years old): Bili to ng mommy ko sa mall binili niya ko ng witch saka rapunzel tapos dalawang baby dolls

Pia: (with an annoyed look on her face) dami ko toys bahay bili daddy ko, one two three (habang minumwestra ung daliri nya gano kadami toys nya nafeel niya siguro na niyayabangan siya nung batang babae hahaha)

Elder S: ako din dami bili ng mommy ko sa bahay

Pia: daddy ko dami dogs Elly chuchuy dami babbit one two three dami bahay

Elder S: kami ng momy ko bibili ng dog yung yellow

Pia: kami dami dogs bahay dami dami babbit dami baby babbit ibon pa dami

Elder S: Play na lang tayo to oh look eto ung witch (tapos kunwari lilipad ung isang mini doll nung batang babae)

Then they played again until the worship service finishes. I was quite amazed at how Piatot proudly tried to counter that elder kid showing off though she still cannot speak fluently. I knew that moment she’s not going to be someone who’ll be bullied hahaha I hope she’ll still be the same fighter when she grows up and if she ever forgets how to fight I hope this blog post would still be here so I have proof that she’s already a fighter at barely 3 years old😊

when you’re not into politics but your mom is…

so my mom sent me a pim in FB saying she’ll run for kagawad, that was like 2 weeks ago, (if my memory serves me right) I just shrugged it off jokingly saying “ikaw ma, kung san ka masaya suportahan ta ka”

so now she sent me another pim with this picture

looks like there’s no turning back now, looks like Hitler’s into it too.

oh well, if she win, that’s an additional headache but I guess that’s an achievement unlock too, for her.

anyhow, whatever happens, I’ll just be here to support her all the way.

good luck mamadear!

just like he was mine

so my husband posted this on my FB’s timeline and I got so kilig and touched at the same time and I don’t want other people to think we’re paBebe so instead of posting it back to his FB’s timeline, I decided to post it here😳

but yeah I’ll also post this on IG so keribels sa mga ampalaya😝

the tale of mister nailcutter

I cut my baby’s nails once a week. It was easier back then, when she was so small, she can barely lift anything except her head. Now, the struggle is real. hahaha.

when she started learning how to crawl, whenever, I would cut her nails, I’ll just distract her and count one through ten in English, Filipino and Arabic, she would listen intently during those times and alas! I have already finished!

the other day, I find it so difficult to make her sit still for me to be able to start cutting her long nails. I started doing the counting thing but it’s wasn’t working anymore. I even gave her stuff to play with but she ends up throwing those things in my face. And then suddenly, I said, hold it and she was startled, (with a weird sounding voice) “Hello Pia! I am Mr. Nailcutter! I am very very hungry! May I eat your nails?”   she started giggling and she gave out her hands willingly. (with a weird voice again) Ho, ho, ho! I am Mr. Nailcutter and I eat nails for dinner!” and then goes the giggling again.

that was one of a hell experience, I’m wondering what technique should I do next time. hahaha on a second thought, I could do her nails while she was sleeping but I’ll be sleeping too so no no no. Ill just think of another story to tell hahaha.




goodbye and hello

in a few hours time, we’ll bid goodbye to 2016 and welcome 2017 (so cliche the intro, haha)

I’ve got lots to be grateful for this year. First and foremost, we got the greatest blessing there is and that will be our daughter Piatot. (despite the sleeplessness, dirty nappies, unexpected tantrums anytime anywhere, the happiness that she has brought into our lives is beyond compare) I happen to get myself a job (though I think I’ll be saying goodbye to this and transfer to another one, haha, wishful), we got our-self a store and an e-bike.

I don’t know but I’m not so excited with new year. maybe because I feel so unsure of what’s going to happen (siguro kapag may anak ka na lagi mo talagang iniisip ung walang kasiguraduhan, or maybe I’m that paranoid, ung tipong dapat maayos ang lahat, bawal kaming mawala or something dahil kawawa naman si Piatot kung mauulila siya, dapat may ganito or ganyan kami para maging maayos ung buhay niya) blah blah. If you’re gonna enter my mind right now, you’ll explode because lots of those uncertainties are lurking in every corner of my mind.

But anyways, I came across this saying in IG this morning. “I am blessed. Today, I am going to focus on what is right in my life“. after  reading this quote, I felt a little better. Just like what someone said somewhere, worrying makes you suffer twice so I want to spare myself from those. (I’m not so much of a masochist)

so tada!

happy new year everyone!

good luck to us!

from a still cynical me,


the struggle is real

hindi ako palaaway na tao at ang pinakagrabeng nagawa ko sa buhay ko ay hilahin ang buhok ng isa kong pinsan sa sobrang bwisit ko sa kanya, (p.s. hindi sabunot kundi hila kasi ang haba ng hair niya, tumakbo siya nun tapos hinabol ko tapos hinila ko ung dulong buhok niya, at talagang nagpaliwanag ako hahaha)

feeling ko mahirap talaga makipag-away at makipagbasag-ulo pero pakiramdam ko ngayon mas mahirap yung makipagbuno ka sa walong buwang baby para lang mabihisan siya at malagyan ng diaper nang hindi siya masasaktan.

hahaha >:)

pakasalan mo yung taong mabubusog ka

sabi nila hindi nakakain ang panglabas na ichura, sabi pa nga ni Andrew E. humanap ka ng panget at ibigin mong tunay.

pero siguro swerte ako kasi yung taong pinakasalan ko nakakabusog na ang ichura nakakabusog pa ng puso at sikmura.


Sa tuwing nakikita ko ang asawa ko, gusto kong umeksena ng linyang “thank you Lord ha, pandesal lang naman hiningi ko, hamburger binigay nyo, may fries pa!” oo na, masyado kong literal, mukha lang akong palaisip pero ganyan ako kababaw, hahahaha 

but on a serious note, sa tuwing nakikita ko yung asawa ko, yung pakiramdam na ihahain na sayo yung pinakapaborito at pinakamasarap na pagkain para sayo (sa panahon na abot langit ung gutom mo) yun ang nararamdaman ko lalo na pag may dala siyang pagkain para sa akin hahaha (pero syempre gaguhan na lang kung sasabihin kong ganun parati, ano to, librong may ending tapos happily ever after.😈)

pakasalan mo yung taong bubusugin hindi lang ang sikmura mo kundi pati puso, kasi tandaan ang pagkain nabubulok, minsan hindi nauubos at yung tira-tira tinatapon. guilty ako sa part na to, kasi yung asawa ko nakakabusog, ako naman nakakagutom, maliban sa hindi ako mahilig at hindi masarap magluto, nung nagpaulan ata ng sweetness sa mundo, ang himbing ng tulog ko. nakakatuwa lang na understanding yung mister ko.

anyhow, sa sweetness lang ba nasusukat kung sino ang mas nagmamahal? hindi siguro? kasi kahit hindi ako sweet, hindi clingy, mas madalas na parang walang pakialam pero kung tatanungin niyo ko kung mahal ko yung asawa ko ?abay mahigit pa sa 100% porsyento ni taguro sasabihin kong Oo.

mamahalin ko siya sa paraang alam ko at walang makapipigil sakin sa ngalan ng buwan. ayy thank you.

oops hindi pa namin Anniversary, napagtripan ko lang umarte nakakainspire kasi si MEGumiho, ayan tuloy😸😻

a piece of heaven

andami kong iniisip nitong mga nakaraang araw. siguro epekto ng puyat at tambay mode. pakiramdam ko wala kong direksyon. nakakapraning din pala yung ganitong buhay. lalangoy o lulubog. minsan nakakadepress lang. ready na kong makinig sa kantang emo at lunurin ang sarili ko sa nakakaurat na pakiramdam ko ngayon kaso bigla kong napatingin sa gilid ko.


tapos naisip ko, may langit pala dito sa lupa. napangiti na lang ako.☺
