Grinning Ear To Ear

Every time my husband finds me in the kitchen, he’s grinning ear to ear. Wanna know why? Well, first of, here are the reasons why I don’t like cooking…

1. I don’t have the patience, I hate this mis-en-plus thing.
2. I’m not so good in cooking hehehe!

And whenever he finds me there, it’s like a miracle hahaha!

On Friday, I went to the kitchen before him. He was wondering coz we were out to pick up some more of our things from the old house. So, expected that I won’t even try to get involved in the kitchen. I have excuses. Enough excuses like Deye is awake or I have other chores to do. Then I explained him why hahaha!

1. It’s time to change. *wink*
2. I’m into this blogging thing and created a separate page for all the recipes that he taught me. Of course, I am including mine now.

To my surprise, he had told his friend who came over for lunch right away. His friend came to me asking, “ate what is your blog link”? Hahaha! Confronted my husband and told him “you are far better than CNN”.

Oh well, he was just happy to know that I am now trying to learn….

The Complaining Princess

She talks little… but complains hahaha!

Yesterday I was giving her a wash, and I had completely forgotten to check on the water temperature. Heater was off but due to the summer heat, water gets too hot.

Sprayed water on her bottom, and she screamed “Mama, AT!!!” Sabi ko huh? What AT? Then, I figured out, oh she meant “HOT” hahaha! Bad mama!

Then I said “sorry po, mama is bad” and she said “atit” with sound pa na “blowing” hahaha!

Oh my complaining princess! :p

Small Dreams

Bigla lang sumagi sa isip ko yung sinasabi lagi ng brother ko na “mag-aasawa daw sya ng Australian para makasakay si mommy sa eroplano”. He was only 7 at that time. He was aware kasi na wala sa bokabularyo ko ang mag-abroad. Di pa kasi nakasakay sa eroplano mother ko kung di pa ako ikinasal dito. That was her first time.

Anyway, just like my brother, I also had my small dreams. Para sa akin dream na yun at that time. I’ve always wanted a 2-door fridge, yung sa gitna ang bukas tapos sa kabilang door may sahuran ng tubig hahaha! Babaw ko no?

Oh well, di lang siguro ako big dreamer. Yung tama lang ay okay na sa akin although libre naman daw ang mangarap. I’m not so fond of the latest mobile phones. Having a luxurious car has never entered my mind. If I had a choice, I won’t leave home. Di naman sa wala akong pangarap, but… I don’t like getting disappointed.

If you expect little, walang sakit or panghihinayang if you don’t get it.

Txt (SMS) Fx??? Grrrrr!

Advantage/s:
1. You can save space, instead of 6 liners, magiging 4 liners dahil sa short cuts.
2. Means, you can construct more words.

Disadvantage/s:
1. Nagiging poor na ang “spelling” ng mga texters.
2. And this could affect grade schoolers’/beginners’ spellings.
3. At higit sa lahat, nawiwindang akong magbasa huh! Some do it to save space pero yung iba naman they do cut the words short pero nilalagyan naman ng “h”. Ay naku! I don’t get the point! Nahihilo akong magbasa lalo na yung may number 2 pag dinodoble ang syllable.

O di kaya dahil di lang ako makarelate? Dahil di ako sanay at marunong? :p Bwehehehe!
