Happy 9th Birthday, Rem!

It’s been hubby’s practice to be home for Rem’s birthday, and that’s what happened again on her 9th which was last August 23. Hubby arrived 13th of the month, and we decided to go home to Samar for the fiesta last August 14 and 15. For Rem’s birthday, we checked -in at Hotel H20 (August 22-24) at the Manila Ocean Park, because, that’s what she wanted, instead of throwing up a big party. Not that I really want a grand party, but, I just want her to experience it, and be able to invite her friends from school especially since she’s always invited to their parties. But, she insisted that she only wants a hotel quality time with me and her poppa, and so we did.

We spent 3-days and 2-nights at the hotel, and enjoyed all the amenities they have there. We also toured around Intramuros then had our birthday dinner at Barbara’s. On the checking-out day, we had an early dinner at home with our relatives, hubby’s side, as a reunion and still an extension of Rem’s birthday celebration. The following day, Monday, glad it was a holiday, was another reunion in Pasig, at uncle Toding’s place, with our relatives, my side this time.

Here are the photos of how we celebrated her special day:

It does look like we had a lot of fun, right?

My wish:

Happy Birthday, Rem! May God continue to guide us in bringing you up, so you’ll grow up the way He wants you to be. Thank you for being nice, you are truly the best daughter in the world. I don’t feel sad that you are my only child, because with you, it feels complete already. I love you so much!

Believe me, she has now plans for her 10th birthday, and it’s just for the three of us again. Well, it’s something that excites me, too, because they are just the best company for me in this world. It’s always an awesome, threesome for us.

Job-hunting and Rem

In line with wanting to find a job one of these days, I’ve been asking few friends via Facebook if they know any job opportunities that I could apply for. That’s beside applying directly online (hahah!). Well, I just realized that I am now so ready to work again because Rem comes home around past 2:00PM already, and she approves of it, in fact, she would ask me if I’m looking for a job whenever she sees me on the computer. But what surprised me was when I asked her if it’s okay with her if I join her Poppa in Qatar so I’ll work there, and we’ll just get her afterwards. She just said, “yes, but, someone should stay with me so I wouldn’t be lonely”. Goodness, I thought she would be melodramatic, but, she really has a mind of her own. I just joked hubby about it, that I should get a job because I feel that Rem will live independently by age 13. Aside from Rem’s approval of me wanting to work again, she says, “so you’ll be happy and we’ll be rich.” I know she is just so excited about her “pasalubong” on a daily basis.

Well, since I could actually start employment by September because hubby is coming home this August for Rem’s birthday, I am not really rushing as of the moment. I just hope and pray that a good one will come at the perfect time

Fighting the Boredom

It’s been a bit of a boring time for me lately, but, I had to fight it and decided to clean around our pad which included our fridge, of course. I just made sure the freezer was ready after my visit to Marikina Market. Aside from cleaning it up, I also made sure, all the plastic wares I’d need were just as clean and ready. I felt kind of accomplished when I saw it done, and when Rem was impressed. Well, I guess, you’ll also like it if my freezer would always look like this, right?

This is just one of the things I do to fight boredom. I am now back to blogging, reading novels and have just finished updating my resume’. I want to look for a job soon. This daily physical exercise just made me feel a lot stronger and healthier and made me think that I am now ready to face the career-world. This way, from feeling bored, I feel excited already. Thanks to hubby and Rem for an early approval. I just hope God will bless me with a great company again. Wish me luck, guys.

Loving Myself More

During the entire summer, I hardly exercised because even sitting down made me sweat. Well, you know how hot it is in Manila during this season. But, despite the heat, I gained a few pounds because there was a lot of eating here and there. When my weight gain became noticeable already, I went back to my Zumba workout and also started doing morning walk, either of the two in a day. When it’s raining outside, that’s actually the time I do Zumba. The good news is, the few pounds I gained in 2-months, were lost in a month of regular exercise. Isn’t it cool? One more thing, my body is longing for that sweaty me already, so, I make sure I do my workout everyday. There are unavoidable circumstances though that make me miss my workout, but, that is when I have to do an errand. Still, it’s a physical activity, so, it doesn’t make me feel guilty at all. For someone like me, who doesn’t want to go into diet, it is best to get into a regular exercise to stay fit. I feel a lot stronger and healthier this time, and that makes me love myself more. How about you, how do you keep yourself fit?
