Last night I had a date with my mom and dad. We watched a Star Cinema movie entitled IN MY LIFE which stars the Star For All Seasons Ms. Vilma Santos, her son Luis Manzano and a versatile actor John Lloyd Cruz and is directed by Olivia Lamasan, who also directed the movies Got 2 Believe in Magic and Milan. You may watch the full trailer of this abs-cbn movie IN MY LIFE here.

Among the characters, it was Shirley who made me laugh and cry as I can see in her my mother and myself (as a mother too). There was a part in the movie where Ms. Vilma Santos, Shirley, told about how there were times she wanted to give up but she didn’t because she had to be strong for her children. There I saw my mom… I believe many times in the past there were days she was just too tired, but she didn’t retire from motherhood – no one can. She smiled eventhough sometimes I knew her heart was breaking. I saw myself too… During my hepatitis days in China, I was supposed to do nothing for a month – do nothing but stay in bed to rest. But I had to take care of my son, who at that time was only over 2 years old. I had to bathe him, cook for him, cuddle and play with him. Those days I told myself, “I can rest from being a teacher (as I was employed as an English teacher when we were in China) but not as a wife and a mother.” So instead of saying goodbye to hepatitis A after a month, it took me 3 months. Oh well… But that’s also the beauty of motherhood, once you’re in, there’s no going out so the only choice we have mothers is FIGHT and GO ON!

How about you? Who are you in the movie IN MY LIFE? Who made you shed a 100 teardrops – Ms. Vilma Santos, Luis Manzano, John Lloyd Cruz or others?

Several days ago I was updating my facebook account and looking through some of my friends updates. I came across one of my friend's notes. Francis Kong, a famous writer and speaker in our country, has this blog entitle INSPIRING EXCELLENCE. I read some of his posts and it's indeed inspiring so I thought of sharing it with you. It's a blessing to read a piece that helps you come up higher rather than pull you down... Do share his site with your friends and I truly hope it'll inspire you too :o)

Here are some thoughts I borrowed from his writing:

Depression is a killer and if you don’t have a personal toolbox that contains depression busters then you may just add one more problem to the many you already have...Remember this: If you do not want to hit bottom-stop digging the hole.- 12 Ways to Fight Depression

Somebody says, this is the recorded message in one of the answering machines he heard:
Hi! This is John. If you are the telephone company I already sent the money. If you are my parents please send me more money. If you are my friends you owe me money but if you are a female… don’t worry… I’ve got lots of money!”... Technology may have made us more efficient yet it has isolated us from human interaction as well.
- The Human Touch

A person is truly great when he is not envious of his rival’s success. And don’t forget, stop envying the man who has everything. That man probably has ulcers too. - Everybody Loves A Winner… Or Do They Really?

Santa in China!!!

Last Saturday we went to Walmart (yep, we have it here in China) and we were so happy to find Santa dancing :o) So I immediately told my baby to hold Santa's hand... I remember last year Christmas decors weren't up not until almost the 20th of December and there was no moving St. Nick. But now it's earlier and with Santa dancing, EJ was so amazed...not to metion I was more amazed! hihi... Somehow China's beginning to relate to the Christmas celebration - in terms of the occasion that is, but not the reason for this season - which is Christ's birth. But someday, I'm sure they will understand the real reason for this season :o)

Merry Christmas to you :o) From China with love...

Last Dec. 10, yours truly turned a year older - yep, I'm 31 :o) I cooked spaghetti and prepared ice box cake. Mu husband bought 2 small cakes (can u see them? too small huh!) with those teenie weenie candles too that says 31 (yes, that's how you're supposed to read those candles!) Imee bought the Sprite and the oranges... And oh, I'm wearing Cathy and Jon's gift - i love purple! Other stuffs on the table are just add ons to make it look "full" (wink)

They were singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU and it made me very excited so I clapped my hands and had that ALL OUT SMILES!

We had our family picture...Yes, this is our family here in China. We managed to stick together and be there for each other in good times and bad... Cindy girl, we miss you here!!! Don't worry, you'll have your share of treat this weekend :o)
My 2 loves gave me their kisses...i love this shot!

EJ and I blew my tiny candles...and off we ate all we can.

We ended the night with this "showing off my tummy" pose... Baby is 18 weeks so here's how we both look :o)

Before I end this blog, for the record, my day wasn't perfect... My husband came home at 9pm because he needed to stay at work to finish a deadline so the rest of us had to eat our partial dinner while waiting for him because we were all starving, EJ accidentally hit my cheekbone with his head (oh my it hurt and it made me weep like a child!!!) but in spite that, I made a choice not to allow anything to rob my joy. So we had those photos up there :o)

Life is simple... Birthdays need not be expensive nor perfect. As long as you have special people to celebrate it with, that for me is a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Heard of Santa Cops?

Here's an interesting post I read from poshpost:
"The Santa Cops of the Philippines...But aside from thwarting criminal activity, the Santa Cops also help people, such as helping this old lady cross the street. They also give out candies to children. And sometimes, those in complete Santa costume, take time out to have a picture taking with interested kids." Read More

Yes it is Christmas and the initiative sounds good but I wonder if the other parts of the World do let their cops wear this Santa costumes too... Or this is one of those moments we can say ONLY IN THE PHILIPPINES? If yes, is this something we can be proud of as Filipinos?
