My Midlife Story

Everything happens for a reason. Positive or negative, we always wonder why it happened, how it happened, why me, why now, what's next. We may react negatively but in the end when we see the choices we are given to be able to do something about it, we realize that it happened to make us better persons. We may not be able to forgive or forget the cause, whoever or whatever it may be but we should remember that pain makes us see, feel and appreciate the comfort that everything and everyone around us can give. That failure puts us on the right track, that betrayal teaches us to be honest and truthful to others and to ourselves. Should i be thankful for everything that happens to me? Yes, for an almost perfect life, for an almost perfect me (almost lang. Nobody's perfect e) ....
Last night, my husband and my daughter came home with a puppy which a friend gave them as a gift. i was happy but at the same time a little worried that our dog, Bubbles will not accept her as her new friend. the puppy's name is Ash, a gray mix German Spitz (and i don't know the other half) is a really hyperactive gray little one and luckily, Bubbles readily accepted her (except when Ash went to Bubbles' bowl and tried to eat her food that she really got mad, growled and tried to bite her head off!). Ash is so playful that she did not want to be left alone and cried until we came to her. She played until about 1 am and i was so sleepy i sneaked quietly into our room and left her in the kitchen with Bubbles. She was crying until she got tired and fell asleep. her cries woke us up today. I hope she changes her habits soon, otherwise we'll be sleeping late every night just to keep her from crying which keeps our neighbor awake too!

Makiling Airsoft Club


The Makiling Airsoft Club

My husband is a member of the Makiling Airsoft Club .. an Airsoft Team based in Los Banos, Laguna, Philippines nestled near the legendary Mt. Makiling. The group founded in the year 2000 adheres to its principles of honor, integrity, honesty and brotherhood. The group is composed of individuals from engineers to lawyers, doctors and consultants to businessmen and students who share the same passion of playing and promoting airsoft as a Sport. Aside from fun, they also host beneficial games for target individuals.. the latest of which is the Benefit Game for Typhoon Sendong victims which hit the country in the last part of 2011. A van-load of used clothes and food stuffs were colleceted from donations of other airsoft teams in the province who participated in the event last January 2012...

My Husband

I once read an article that says “The search for the ideal husband is an eternal one! The truth is that it is rare in life that any one thing or person turns out to be “ideal” and choosing words like reasonable, amicable, livable, satisfying and acceptable would be better terms with which to describe your husband. If you can find a man you can live with; you are in luck!” Am I the lucky one!!!! I found a man I can live with, and happily at that. He may not be perfect but the term ideal is not enough to describe him that sometimes I wonder whatever I did that God gave him to me as a reward.
Contrary to my observations on other couple friends of ours, I feel lucky he hasn’t changed. Nothing’s changed, kid, financial and life struggles and all. Respect and honesty has always been and I’m sure will always be there between us. Communication between us has never been better and more open now that we have a teenage daughter, which also helps her become a person of good character who knows how…
