let's see tomorrow if i finally lose that 10 lbs i aimed for.

dear mazi,

just like in a song, RESPECT, is really a big thing to me! at a very young age, this is one of the values that we constantly talk to you about. the intention is for it to be one of your foundation. you know, things like, respect the elders, respect your friends, or respect everyone basically. that has been what we always try to follow every single day.

i chose this topic in this post coz of our recent met-ups with some of our relatives here.

it pains me to see the sons not giving due respect to their mom. they even fail to show any affection to their mom. i am not saying to cuddle up or kiss every now and then, i mean, its their mom's bday and they can't even smile for pictures nor stay close to each other. i also have not seen or observed them being grateful to their mom with their opportunity to live here in canada. the sad part is, i was also informed how disrespectful and these kids are to their mom. hurling hurtful and "bad" words to their mom.

you know mazi, that is one thing that i will not allow to happen. of course, i'm sure you know already coz there are times you got in trouble with me and mommy on how you treat us. the way you talk, respond and even act.

you know that every single day that passes, we always remind you to be thankful of what you have. be happy with what we have. be contantly respectful and courteous to everybody.

i can't help not making a big deal out of this respect thing, because, i also learned this from my parents. same way, we want you to grow up with the proper values intact.

this is all for now.

thanksgiving it is!

dear mazi,

wow, its been over a week since the last time i made a post. work just got in the way, i guess. so much things going on at work, from my usual branch visits to my never-ending tasks in the head office. oh my, here i go again...thing is, i don't, i won't, i shouldn't, complain!! as it is, i am soooo thankful for know, the job, the family, the friends and all the material things i have.

today is Thanksgiving Day!! i'm not really sure how this started but one thing is sure, this is a yearly event that everyone looks forward to. people go gaga preparing lavish dinners or lunches to celebrate this day. we did our own share in the past years. i have prepared or should i say, baked turkeys for the past celebrations. it was fun but labor-intensive.

but yeah today, i always believe that thanksgiving is a daily affair. it maybe is at its peak at today's date but it is usually celebrated by us on a daily basis. you know, being grateful to every little things we get to experience everyday of our lives.

personally, i thank the Lord above for you as you have brought so much joy to mommy and daddy. we celebrate every single day we are together!

of course, as i have said above, we are thankful for all the blessings that go our way. we are thankful for the family that we have, for the friends and for the material things that we have.

thankfully yours,

embarrassing moments

dear mazi,

last night was so much fun chit chatting with you, your cousins and friends at your cousins house. how coult it not be, we had a wonderful dinner with relatives and family-friends (hot pot, crispy pata, steak and KFC chicken), then, everybody settled to doing their own thing. tita nancy and jay, watching a movie online, some of the kids playing DS and PSP, some of us doing Wii Fit and the others browsing the internet.

then we all settled in the living room to do "Family Feud Game online". oh it was a blast!! we are the noisiest bunch!! good thing the neighbors didn't call RCMP to silence us. the boys won the first game while you guys (girls and ladies) won and the second/rematch game where you even won the 20 thousand bonus money!! wow!!

then, it was getting late, we retreated to ninong jr's room for some fun. we started teasing mikee about her ear then she teased me back about my being overweight and would be perfect as santa claus.

i started telling them about embarrassing moments (which i started by telling them about your classmate 's and your embarrassing moments at school). that set-off everybody by sharing their embarrasing moments. alyssa mentioned a lot (about poo, farting and toilet jokes), same way with mikee. you also shared about farting ang poo while allison had a hard time sharing coz she said she can't remember any. then, of course, alyssa shared so much again.

even mommy, tried to share her embarrassing moments, although we kept on ribbing her about talking in english!! same with ninong jr who shared about that time when he was in high school and had to bring "coleman food container" separated into 3 parts with water, chicken and rice. he dragged it on the floor then all of a sudden, the container opened and all the food and water spilled onto the floor. he had to pick it up and throw away. ending, he didnt have any lunch and had to buy from the cafeteria. im sure he got a lot of teasing from his schoolmates.

i also shared about having my colds ballooned on my nose while talking before. had to pop it coz it was sooo funny and embarrassing!. mommy shared about her recent embarrassing moment while riding the bus going to work in downtown. funny that she tried to knock the door open and shouting to let the driver open the door where in fact it wasnt a bus stop yet. all the other passengers were looking at her with amazement. good thing nobody knows her in that bus. hehehe.

it was a lot of exchanging stories. we all had fun laughing at ourselves and our silly experiences. maybe we can do a lot of these in the future. these are memories that would last. you know, you guys will also talk about it when you grow old/older.

anyway, this is it for now. we'll do some more funny stuff with your friends pretty soon, im sure.

love you,
