Day 24: Dearest Mom And Dad

Sunday, 26 September, 2010

I’m confused whether or not this is the right time to confess… I’ve been keeping a lot of things from my parents. If I am to write them a letter… it will be on a piece of paper and in the native language. And then I’ll give it to them personally. For now, let me post what my heart tells me…

Happy Family_Mom_Dad

The joys of parents are secret, and so are their griefs and fears.

I thank you so much for all the love and care you’ve showered us since we’re born until now. Thanks for preparing my meal three times a day. Thanks for doing the laundry instead of me doing it. Thanks for fixing our bed early in the morning. Thanks for buying us our school needs. Thank you for being the best mother in every sense of the word.

I just hope you can be stronger. I love the faith I see in you. Be more positive, always!

Thanks for being my first teacher. Even if other people always say that I inherited my intelligence from your mom, I believe that it’s your genes that made me this smart. Thanks for working hard for my tuition fees and other school projects. Thanks for trusting me that much and always praying for my success. I am lucky you’re not that strict. Even if my love for you and mom are equal, I still prefer the way you raise and discipline us. Thanks for all the support when I made the toughest decision in my life.

To both of you, thank you for being proud of me… I am sorry that I can’t be with you all the time. I’ll be always here for you. Again, my never-ending thank you. Love you so much.

I’m missing them real bad… 🙁
Good thing I’ll be visiting my hometown this weekend with my sister. Time to be with them again!

Day 14: My Beloved Family

Friday, 17 September, 2010

Awww, all of my family pics are not stored in digital devices. LOL. They’re on the traditional photo albums at home but I won’t scan them either. I’ll just take new ones using my DSLR!

For now, let me share you a picture of my kids who I also treat as my family:

Happy Family!

Note: It’s not even a complete Stuffed Toy Family picture… 🙁 Sorry.

Day 09: Bragging Rights

Sunday, 12 September, 2010

Oh, haven’t noticed that there’s a separate topic about this one in the 30-day challenge! I have already blabbed about in on Day 08: From Good To Great!

Proud Elf

Look, I'm so proud and happy!

Anyway, let me think of some more…

• I have shown how much I love my sister by worrying about her and checking her condition from time to time. I almost skipped playing magic because of her but thanks to our landlady, she accompanied her to the dentist. She must undergo root canal surgery. I assured her that it will be alright and I’ll cover all the expenses. I’m proud of myself for being the BEST SISTER!

• I was able to voice out my sentiments and leave intelligent remarks along with it. I’m not proud of being b!tchy but I’m so happy for being me…

• I graduated cumlaude from Batangas State University. And why am I bragging about this just now? Because people here knew it now because I just told them after solving a simple mathematical equation. I love numbers. And I really love their reaction, too. 🙂

• I still know how to play Magic: The Gathering even if I lack practice and haven’t joined any tournament for the past few months. (Well, almost a year!) We also got two Grave Titan from four booster packs! I’m so lucky and that’s something to be thankful and happy about!

• I just used my debit card for the first time. Haha. It means a lot to me because I always pay with cash. I don’t have credit cards and I don’t wanna have any. And this debit card of mine holds my riches. Yup, lots of money. Lol.

• We just had a meeting and I’ll be joining the outreach event again. Thanks God for blessing me with a kind heart.

• I’ve never missed my period. Lol. That’s the best and funniest part!

A Moment To Remember (Korean Movie)

Thursday, 26 August, 2010
A Moment To Remember

A Moment To Remember

I watched this movie with my boyfriend last weekend, and oh boy, I couldn’t help but cry to my heart’s content. Though I don’t know any personal casualties of Alzheimer’s disease, the thought of gradually losing  all wonderful memories is really a terrifying one, much more, in an instant. I now fear MENTAL death over the physical death. I don’t want to reach a point wherein I won’t recognize my family and loved ones anymore… I’d love to cherish colorful memories forever, I’d love to express what I feel and treasure every relationship. I won’t be able to accept everything until I’m lifeless.

I started crying from the scene that features Su Jin and the doctor discussing her serious problem up to the ending of the movie. Mind you, it’s 2 and half hours long and I have no idea how much tears I’ve cried! My boyfriend was comforting me then as if he’s the cause of my pain and sorrow. *sigh*

And I cried even more when Su Jin wrote Chul Soo a letter (click the image to enlarge):

A Moment To Remember Letter

Momentary love...

Though this Korean movie was officially released on November 2004, I believe there are few people who haven’t viewed this one yet, worst, who’s not aware that such interesting and touching movie exists and that’s the reason why I’ve got no more spoiler here. For me, “A Moment To Remember” is like “My Sassy Girl” and “The Notebook” in one, so if you’re up for spice and drama you must give this a shot!
