Happy Monday everyone!
Its another week for our pixel bug. My week started okay but then later on the day I noticed my bea having pain while urinating. She keeps on saying AWIE ( her term for ouch) with scream really scary and heart breaking seeing her so helpless. It really brings me to tears just looking at her.
Anyway that morning we went to the beach to play in the sand. here are some of our pics...
See how happy we started our week?

Happy Friday Everyone!
Its another day for our Mommy Momments and for this weeks topic it's the dreaded tantrums. My bea has bouts of tantrums almost everyday probably because she is in her terrible two's phase ( hehehehe). Whenever she wants something she cries... even before I can understand what she wants she is already wailing her heart out.
It is hard for parents expecially mommies to deal with tantrums... I for one gets crazy whenever my sweet angel throws her tantrum fits. At times Ill just be quiet and ignore her then she will stop but most of the time if you ignore her she will cry more.... if you console her she will cry even more ..... It is a constant battle dealing with tantrums.
What usually works for bea is when I Yell at her and warn her that if she doesnt behave she would have to go to time out... she hates being placed on a corner (LOL). But sometimes that doesnt work also... That will be the time I would really be quiet and just look at her in the eye and dont say a word.. she would know by then that I am M_A_D and it is time for her to stop whinning...
What I love about my daughter is after her tantrum fits she would come to me and kiss me and say Mommy... sorry...I still have a long way to go before my daughter outgrews this toddler stage and I am thinking by that time I would already have a full head of gray hair... lucky if I dont get bald by that time LOL.
This is my bea last saturday, she was asking for ice cream before she even ate her lunch.. of course I said NO.... I was scolding her that is why she looks like this ... I posted this pic on my friendster account and my dad who saw this pic immediately texted me and asked why I am making my daughter cry ( Hay, Grandparents!)
How about you how does your kids show their tantrum fits? Share with us on Mommy Momments...

Anyway, It's another week for our Girl's Talk and this week we get to talk about our fave dresses. When I am working in the office I usually would wear black trousers and a blouse, or sometimes whenever I feel like it I would wear a simple dress.
Here are some of my dresses.... It is simple but it is super comfy =)

The first time I met my husband was around February of 2002, that time I am just about a few months here in Saipan. My mother at that time was in the Philippines to fix a problem we had with my sister ( she got pregnant and my dad who lives with her doesnt have any idea about her condition). It was lonely being alone in our room at the company provided barracks for my mom ( I used to share a room with her), but i took that time to learn how to live independently.
Since I am just new with the company, I was from time to time being assigned to the different business activities of the company. At that time I was assigned at the video shop since the clerk in charge did not report for work.
I still can remember vividly how my prince charming entered the video shop, he was wearing a red shirt which was their uniform =) and the first phrase he blurted was- kamukha mo ung ex-girl friend ( you look like my ex-girlfriend) How rude! LOL. In my mind I told my self this guy is so fresh and he is really annoying. He asked me if he could rent a tape and I asked him to sign a membership form, he said Do I have to? I'm like DUH.... of course naman no( as if friends kami) .
After I got the information from and checked out the tape, he asked me if I have a ride home. I told him I have paid someone to take care of my transportation and then he just said okay.
The next day.... he went back to the video shop during his lunch break he told me he was so disappointed to find out that I was not working their at that time... he came back that afternoon ( i'm usually assigned at the video shop from 5pm-9pm) he asked me again if he could drop me at our home... well what do you know my ever reliable ride just called and he said his car broke down and if I could aske someone from work to drop me at our house instead.
I accepted his offer ( that is the first time that I have done that, hey I am desperate LOL), before we went home he asked if we could eat first as he was startving, I said okay as if I have a choice I am at his mercy LOL. We ate at Jolibee and I think I ordered shanghai rolls and he ordered palabok. Like Mommy Liz I only eat a portion of my meal ( hehehhehe dont want him to have the impression that I ate a lot). After the diner he drop me home and we said our good bye ( like niko- no kiss or hug also)
It was the start of our friendship, back then I was in the process of ending a 3 year relationship to a person I prefer to forget =(, he was there when I needed someone to give me advice, a shoulder to cry on. He has given me the confidence to move one and to realize that I deserve someone better ( meaning HIM)... From the looks of it I think he took advantage of my situation hahahha.
And for the record I don't look like his ex girlfriend.... please I dont want to be associated with them hahahhaha.
How about you how did you meet your partner? Share with us every wednesday.

Only a couple of days left until you leave us behind. You will know move to a greener pasture and you will leave behind this Island that you have called home for more than five years and even the people you have called family. You have shared so much of your life not only with your company but also to the people who surrounds you.
I, for one had been given the priveledge of meeting you, get to know you and eventually be your friend/bestfriend and sister. We may not have the same opinion on things but what distinguish us from others is our differences had made us better friends. We respect each others opinion and views and we do not hesitate to give each other a piece of our mind and give the best advice that we could give.
You have taught me a lot thru your personal experiences which I am truly grateful. Sis, Thank you for giving me the chance to know you more, thank you for trusting me with everything I feel honored to be your friend.
It would be selfish of me to wish that you just stay here and never leave us behind, but deep inside my heart I truly wish you to have a fresh start, a chance to improve your knowledge. an opportunity to see the world and be the best that you can be.
I love you sis and please be safe on your next destination.... I am sad that I wont see you constantly but hey, we still have the internet to keep us connected.... Till then sis and see you arround.
First, My kumare (God mother of my bea), has given birth to her first ever baby girl Stephanie Joyce last Oct. 16, 2009. Like me she has also waited for a long time ( 6years!) to be blessed with a miracle of her own. It is always a great feeling to see a new born baby... so pure... so full of joy...
To my kumare Noemi.... Congratulations and I wish Steph will grow into a beautiful and smart woman like us. LOL .
Last, saturday I attended the wedding of my husbands former co-worker, Ate Dory ( I think she is about 53 yrs. old). I have known her eversince my hubby and I started dating, back then she is in a relationship with my hubbys bestfriend. Unfortunately, her boyfriend then, died of kidney failure and complication. Last year, her contract with the company was not renewed and she was forced to leave Saipan and search for work elsewhere. After working for more than 10 years with the same company giving all that you can give and just be put in that position must be really heart wrenching.
God really moves in mysterious ways, despite the downs Ate Dory had experienced she was given the chance to meet her bestfriend and to have someone who can take care and love her for the rest of her life. She was given the chance to have the wedding of her dreams for the first time. While most of us are married at a young age, she just had her chance of her own fairy tale at this age. I like one of the songs at her wedding party, I am not sure of the title but the song fit them, it goes like this " Im lucky I'm inlove with my bestfried ..... la lalalala" Please help me on the title hehehehehe.
To Ate Dory and her new Husband Victor... you trully deserve each other and you both deserve to be happy... Best wishes..

Its another week for our Mommy Moments and this weeks theme is Trip to the Mall.
In our tiny island we really dont have a Mall, We only have department stores that sells everything. It is good though 'coz you get to go grocery shopping then look for clothes, toys and shoes at the same time.
The closest thing to a mall that we have here in the island is the Duty Free Shop (DFS) it is only about 2 flrs. high and it sells all name brand items from clothes, liquour cigarette and accessories. Inside the DFS there is also a small plya area for the kids and a small coffee shop and thats it.
Come and share with us every friday on Mommy Momments.

It's Thursday already and I forgot to take a picture of my shoes =). Luckily, I can go to the stores website and get an image from there.
I usually wear flat shoes whenever I am with my daughter or if I am not in the office. I have a history of tripping down and I do not want to have an accident while I am carrying my daughter. I bought this shoes last week to pair with a dress that I bought for an occassion.
The 2nd shoe, I use it whenever I am out with friends, it is cute but Ive used it only a couple of times the leather straps are hard and its not comfortable, but I still like it as they say Beauty is Pain =).
The last pic is pretty much how my office shoes looks like. It is very hot here in the islands and strappy heels are recommended.
And when I am just running my errands like grocery shopping or bargain hunting I would usually wear flip flops.
How about you? share us your fave shoes at Girl's talk.
Join us every thursday, where we can talk all girly.

I am a very shy person at first and it takes a little while before I warm up to the person but once I do I will surely be a friend for keeps =). My mother calls me tiger because she says when I am mad I am scary hahahhah. I am a simple girl who is contented with the simple things in life.
My husband is very quiet and he is very dedicated with his work that sometimes I feel Im competing for attention against his job ( that's how dedicated he is). He is such a goof ball when it comes to our daughter bea, he would do anything and everything just to make my baby laugh. He has taught me so many things but the most important thing he has taught me is the value of SAVING, he turns over every cent of his paycheck to me and in return I only have to make sure I deposit a fixed amount on our account every month.

This video was taken last saturday night when we were expecting Typhoon Melor to hit our tiny island. Luckily we still have power and cable ( we can't watch anything on TV if we dont have cable =( ).
My hubby was watchign news on his TV while bea was watching one of her Barney tape on her portable dvd player. She loved Barney's song so much, whenever she hears songs from Barney she would sing along and even dance, just like in the video... luckily daddy was also in the mood to dance to the tune of Barney =) aren't they cute?
P.S. to all those who commented on my previous blog, thank you so much.... I appreciated it. I am just so busy now in the office ( quarterly tax filings are due this month and i had so much on my hand right now, but i still manage to check my blog and post one entry =) ).
