My first blog Award for this Year

I am happy to share to you that Pinay Expat has given me this beautiful "Versatile Blogger" award.
I accept this blog award with all my heart because I know that I deserve it (because Pinay Expat thinks I deserve it woohoo).
I don't write daily here in my blog nowadays because I am so busy with my other two blogs but I will not abandon this blog because this is where I started.

The following are the accompanying rules for this award:
  1. Thank and link back to the blogger that awarded you the badge.
  2. Share 7 things about you.
  3. Award 5 or 15 other bloggers.
  4. Contact these bloggers to let them know about the award.
Fast Facts about Me:
  1. I can sleep anywhere, be it a bed with foam or a simple "banig" on the floor, my friends don't have to worry about me because I can easily adapt to my environment.
  2. I have been wanting to buy a DSLR for the longest time already but I still cannot decide which one to buy.
  3. I believe that I needed braces because my teeth are not pleasant to look at up close.
  4. I easily trust people but I always depend on my instincts.
  5. I can always forgive someone who mistreated me but I will never forget what they have done to me.
  6. My son is my life and I won't let anything come between us.
  7. I am loving my life as a blogger.
I will give this award to these versatile bloggers I know who are worth it:

Jb's 4th Birthday

Today is Jb’s 4th birthday. We will celebrate it this coming Sunday, April 24, 2011. But we will not let this day pass without giving Jb a treat for his natal day and my brother said he will be the one to pay for our lunch at Jollibee as his gift for Jb. So we will only have to spend the day together with our family, a simple lunch date at Jollibee I guess.

But this coming Easter Sunday, I have prepared a private pool party with all the things that a kid would surely enjoy for his 4th birthday. I have bought a PiƱata – filled with chocolates and candies, for his friends to feast on. I also prepared loot bags with toys inside for every kid who will be with us on Jb’s birthday.

Jb is excited for his coming birthday because he has seen his birthday tarpaulin that was given to him by his Godmother Lori. He is also excited to receive tons of birthday gifts from his Godparents and relatives. I only wanted the best for my son and with that I will give him everything he wants and everything he needs to be happy. We are a family of two, a mom and a son, but it didn’t keep us from being happy.

Wishing for a Baby Girl

When I got pregnant, I wished for a baby girl but God gave me a baby boy and I am happy for having him in my life. But why would I wish for a baby girl? I wanted to have a baby girl because I am a girl once in my life and I wanted to have someone who I can share my wishes and dreams when I was young, who I can play with the stuffs I like, who I can dress up with, and talk about make-ups, fashion and boys in the future. In short, I wanted to have someone who can be a little me.

Aside from those reasons, baby girls look cute when they wear baby jewellery. Some of my friends who have baby girls got their girls’ ear pierced before their girls turn one year old. They look so cute and adorable and sometimes I envy my friends for having baby girls because when they become toddlers they would definitely look good wearing fashionable gold necklaces and bracelets.

I have a baby boy now but I am hoping when I get married, I will have a baby girl of my own but still, it all depends on God’s wishes.

Collection as a Hobby

When I was young, I used to collect paper stationeries. Every time my mom goes to the city I always ask her to bring me paper stationery that is unique and different. I still have those with me until now; they are tuck and safe in one of my drawers. Aside from that, I also collect stamps, I bought some and some were taken from different letters that has been sent to me by my friends from different places.

As I grow up, my love for collecting different things has always stayed with me. The next thing I collected was postcards, key chains, different souvenirs from different countries and even t-shirts with different prints of places I have and have not visited. Yes, it is expensive to collect things but if you have a heart for it, the cost will not hurt you. You can start collecting paper bills from different countries or coins from different countries, you do not need to pay for it, you can ask your friends who have visited the place and maybe they have spare souvenirs that they can share to you.

There are people who collect for a living, and there are also people who collect things as a hobby. I know Imelda Marcos has a collection of jewelleries and shoes which are normal for rich people, some celebrities and famous people collects expensive cars, houses, bags and even toys which are collectors editions. But we cannot afford that right? We can start collecting things which we value but are cheaper than those things.
