Two pails of coins12:25 AM Monday April 23, 2018 |

When Edmund saw my alkansya last Saturday he decided to give me two small pails of coins. Remember we scatter coins around the house before New Year’s Eve and we leave the coins lying around our window sills, doorways and stairs till after the Chinese New Year? These are the coins we use for that… read more

In a span of just one week, four new dogs became members of Team Yee. Exactly a week ago, daughter bought a pretty 5 month old shih tzu, whose name Stella was picked by my son. She’s been my constant companion ever since. It feels like we’ve been together for a long time. I give… read more

Marriage Compatibility Test10:58 PM Thursday April 19, 2018 |

If couples are required first to take compatibility tests before they are granted a marriage license, probably very few would end up married. Edmund and I are a good example. If I were to count the number of things that make us compatible it would surely pale in comparison with how different the two of… read more

Our Children are the real magic10:47 PM Thursday April 19, 2018 |

I was moved to tears while watching this recent audition at Britain’s Got Talent. The contestant related his act to his wife who had cancer yet they were blessed with a healthy baby who survived her mom’s chemotherapy. Our children are the real magic.

One Year Schengen Visa Validity10:40 PM Thursday April 19, 2018 |

The European countries normally give a visa validity just enough for the specified duration of travel not even a day extra. We renewed our Schengen visa last February and used it in March. We are again visiting the member states so this time I submitted a letter of request if they could extend to us… read more

Easter Chicks Dining Table08:56 PM Thursday April 19, 2018 |

Holy Thursday, March 29, 2018 I changed our white table cloth with blue flowerettes to one with big yellow sunflowers. This table cloth was bought by Edmund in Vietnam maybe three years ago when he joined the Shik group’s golf tour. It’s about time we use it. I was afraid the sunflowers might be too… read more

Blue Pitoy Moreno gown11:08 PM Wednesday April 18, 2018 |

Edmund and I were invited to a wedding and I was disappointed when I saw that guests were also required to wear specific colors.  I thought this thing only applies to sponsors.  It has become a trend daw according to a friend of mine that guests are also required to wear specific motif or color…. read more

Pumiling mabuti ng bagong Barangay officials09:25 PM Tuesday April 17, 2018 |

Eleksyon na naman pala ng mga barangay officials. People who are jobless and who pretend to want to serve the people should not be voted into office. I think by now we Filipinos should have learned our lessons. Hindi na tayo natuto. There are many barangay officials who do nothing but bask in their own… read more

Unresolved Issues are still here10:29 AM Tuesday April 17, 2018 |

At 10 pm last Saturday night, all of a sudden, there was a light bulb that switched on in my head. Aha! Those were some of the things that made me a sad person. Now, I am going to deal with them. I will no longer allow anyone or anything to stop me from drying… read more
