It’s very rare that my husband initiates an in invitation to go to the mall especially on a weekend and it’s usually a spontaneous invite, that’s why when he does, we should grab the opportunity. Who wouldn’t? An opportunity to shop courtesy of his budget…LOL!
After mass last Sunday (even tough I know there’ll lots of people in the mall), we headed out to Podium to have the boy’s hair cut and shop. That’s my boy with his big smile after buying a gift for their Yaya (househelp).
Of course, my daughter was the one who chose the gift….
That’s hubby checking out some architectural books at NBS.
And since we’re already there, we decided to watch TRON. Interesting movie but not quite my type.
Note: Pixelbug Weekend will be on Holiday Break starting next week. We’ll get back to posting our weekend next year January 10, 2011. So from my family to yours, I would like to greet each and every one a blessed Christmas and a Prosperous New Year. I wish you enjoy the rest of the Holiday season. God bless!
If there’s one competency I lack which I believe is very essential is driving. If you ask me if I have driven a car? Yes. If have driven alone? No.
I guess for me it’s an issue of competency. Being an HR practitioner, I still relate most things to what I have learned in the workplace. From a Human Resource point of view, competence takes into account the combination of knowledge, skills and behavior used in performance of a specific function. Competencies can be developed with proper training and coaching.
So what do I lack here? I believe it’s coaching. A coach should be have the patience, knowledge and skills in developing the abilities of the people they are mentoring. A coach should be able to inspire, motivate and push its clients to achieve the desired results.
As for me, I don’t have one. Hubby just does not have the patience to do it. At the back of my head, I guess it’s one way of him showing me of his fear of me driving alone. Especially when he hears all those modus operandi victimizing car drivers. I guess that’s sweet in a way.
I know and I can feel his concern. He would not let me use a second hand car for fear that I may have a hard time maintaining such. Point taken. Hubs was even looking at cars like bentley, Hybrids and Hyundai Santa Fe. Not that we can afford those automobiles, lol! He just loves looking at cars. I told him that a small, affordable and a very fuel efficient car was enough for us. So despite the fact that it pains his pocket, he strived hard for us (me and the kids) to be able to use a new car. Nothing fancy.
Hubby is not the “showy” type of person but his actions would definitely demonstrate how much he cares. He will even read reviews of automobiles which you can find in sites like www.thecarconnection.com to know more about the car he is eyeing. Furthermore, he does not push me to drive and does not question my competency to drive. He just allows me to be me. Funny, because it’s my kids now who is pushing me to drive
I don’t know, I cannot seem to push myself to do it. Maybe in time… I really cannot say.
It’s our wedding anniversary and being mindful of the times, we decided to commemorate our union as simple as possible. After our usual Sunday morning mass, we decided to head out to Shangri-la and check out Rustan’s Fire Sale. There’s nothing much on sale so we decided to buy some stuff for the kids.
We ended up drooling at Frostings Cupcakes and grabbed one for each of us….
A late lunch at Fish and Co. was in order. Pardon my photo collage, I tried not to include myself (but decided otherwise) since my face is still bloated as an effect of steroids. I have been prescribed to take the meds for my heat rash which is all over my body.
Knowing that my family is happy and all in good health is enough to celebrate our blissful union everyday. I thank the Lord for the bond that he has given me and my hubby and I pray that it will become stronger as the years pass.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

It’s Mother’s Day weekend and I would like to greet all the moms out there a “Happy Mother’s Day!” I hope you all enjoyed your mother’s day celebration.
Since we were not able to watch Iron Man 2 last weekend, we promised the kids that we will watch it this Saturday and we did. No matter how busy Saturday was for both hubs and me, we managed to squeeze in the movie. We could not afford to disappoint the kids twice
Nothing grand for Mother’s Day, we had a simple dinner at Mom’s house.
As a gift, we bought her a cake instead of roses. This is one of my favorite cakes from Red Ribbon,White Forest cake.
I hope everyone had a blast this weekend. If you want to join Pixelbug Weekend, just leave your link in the Linky Tools.
This weekend is a very special weekend as we celebrate two events in one day. Chinese New Year and Valentine’s both falling on the same date. Although, we are not Chinese, I am one in greeting our Chinese brothers, “Kung Hei Fat Choi!”
As for me and hubby, Valentine’s Day was never a big deal for us. Being married to a person who is not “as showy” when it comes to demonstrating his love and affection does not really bother me at all. I have come to accept my husband for whatever he is. The most important thing is that I know deep in my heart that he truly loves me.
However, as we heard mass this Sunday, our parish had a very cute way of celebrating Valentine’s Day. They called all the married coupled and conducted a “renewal of vows” ceremony. It was like getting married once again. How mushy can that be
“I renew my vow to you, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish till death do us part, according to God’s holy law.”
To my hubby (who I know seldom reads my blog posts), I would like to say “Thank You!” – for the love and respect you have showed me throughout our married life. For supporting in all my endeavors. For being my strength when I am down. For all that you are and all that you wish to be, I LOVE YOU!
I hope you all had a meaningful Valentine’s day! and Happy Chinese New Year!

The wedding ring is one of the symbols of your social and spiritual union with your spouse. As you tie the knot, two lives will become one. It is a beautiful gift.
Many years ago, I have made this promise and to this day. I still wore the same ring that tied my life to the person I love. There is no perfect marriage, for the very reason that we, humans are not perfect. A lot of trials and conflicts will come your way. Personally, I believe there are four components of marriage that makes it work, LOVE, TRUST, RESPECT and more importantly FAITH. Faith on your love — that you can weather all the storms that will come, Faith in yourself — that you can give more in order to make things work, FAITH in the LORD — that He will guide and bless you and your union.
Marriage is a work in progress…. for it to be a happy ever after.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.(Proverbs 3:5,6)
