  4. 1..2..Ready. Say...'Walis'!!! - This remain as my photo blog. 

Hope you will visit and support my blogs. I am not very good at this but I am hoping that inch by inch I'll get better and share more entertaining and read-worthy posts for all of you.

30-Day AB Challenge

Tuesday, June 02, 2015


Found this yesterday. And since it is exactly the right day to start, my daughter and I would like to try this challenge. And we are done with our first day last night. So far, so good. I just hope that we can finish this and good results will follow. You can try it too. 

Under Construction

Sorry for the mess. I was currently doing some changes here and I stop halfway. I have urgent matters to attend to at the moment. Will get back with the re-arranging in a while. 




Rendered Speechless

Friday, May 08, 2015
What would your reaction be when your daughter, your only child, suddenly told you that your sarcasm is making her cry? And she was actually sobbing like a hurt child as she was saying this. And did I mention that this incident happened a day before Mother's Day?

My reaction...speechless. The thing is, I was scolding her about something. I am not getting any reaction so I continue nagging sarcastically. Then suddenly she turns to me and told me that I am making her cry. That she wants to say something about the matter but I do not even intend to listen. Then her Dad interfere and ask her what she wanted to say. She told me that I was wrong about the things I was blaming her for. That she is actually doing something about what I am complaining. That I don't see results because I am always busy working. And then she apologize for crying and ask not to be bothered for a while so she may stop crying.

All those while, I keep looking at her. Until the time she turn her back on me. That's when I noticed that I am crying too. I want to say sorry but she wants me to leave her in peace. I pretend to do something to suppress more tears. I am thinking maybe after sometime everything will be okay. Back to normal. And  besides we are not used to being overly dramatic. We are more like the comedic type of family. Always finding reasons to laugh.

After a while, her Dad played a movie. A Chinese-fantasy-comedy movie by Stephen Chow. We had a series of laughs. All three of us. It is not the happy family laugh that we used to have when watching a funny movie together. We laugh all together but on our own. Gets? After the movie, we each proceed to our own spaces without uttering a word. My husband to his favorite sports channel, my daughter to her laptop, and I got my tablet and start writing on my blog. Yes, you guess right. Situation is still crummy up to this writing. I can't make my daughter talk to me even if I wanted to. Partly because I am afraid that she'll get more angry. And another part of me is too proud to admit that I was wrong. All I wanna do now is finished what I'm writing and then go to sleep. And hopefully everything will be all right come morning.

No 'goodnights' tonight.... ;-(

Qik Or It Didn't Happen!

The joy of traveling is best experienced with friends!

Since I discover the joy of traveling I've been sharing my photos through my social media accounts for my friends to see. Those friends that I am not traveling with, that is. But we all know that the best way to share your fun and happy moments is with real-time (or pre-recorded) videos. And with Skype Qik I can capture videos messages for 40 seconds that I can share and exchange with my friends. A very fun and quick way to invite them to join me on my next travel (or brag about the places I've been, hahaha).

Oh look, I've downloaded the app! I can now start sharing my video messages with my friends and love ones. Skype Qik is available on Apple App Store, Google Play Store and Windows Phone Store. So download now.
