Writing Poorly

Below is taken from the book of Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover.

So write.
Get your thoughts down.
Let it rest.
Let it marinate.

Then edit.

But don't edit as you type,
that just slows the brain down.
Find a daily practice,
for me it's blogging every day.
And it's fun.

The more you write, the easier it gets. 
The more it is a flow, the less a worry.
It's not for school, it's not for a grade,
it's just to get your thoughts out there.

You know they want to come out.

So keep at it. Make it a practice.
And write poorly, write awfully, write with abandon and
it may end up being




Now I don't have to be afraid to write everything down. Just like what it said, it may end up being really really good. =)

Keep writing folks!

Anderson Cooper Giggles

We've seen enough of Anderson Cooper for the last few weeks when he was sent to Tacloban City to cover the distraught caused by Typhoon Yolanda. We've known him to be the guy who wears a grey t-shirt and who appears to be really really serious. And apparently, he's the one who threw our very own Korina Sanchez off the track.

And so, I was happy to see this video (when a cousin of mine posted this on her FB wall) and discover the other side of Anderson Cooper. Go watch.

Isn't he adorable? =)

1st Family Staycation: Acacia Hotel Part II


Despite the hearty dinner the night before, we woke up ready to face the buffet breakfast that awaits us at Acaci. We are a family of early riser, so catching up the breakfast spread isn't a problem to us.

The Little Girl waiting for her brekky

I mentioned in the first installment of this staycation that my family lives a simple life. While we have eaten in hotels, formal gatherings and classy restaurants, we still find it a little awkward and we're actually too shy to put foods on our plate. Ang corny namin no? Lol!

munching on her bread
look at the Little Girl's face..funny!

Happy Tummy = Happy Baby

But somehow we were able to fill our plates with various foods that morning. As expected, R's plate was full of Filipino cuisine. He's a big eater so he filled his plate with heavy dishes. While the kids wolfed down their usual brekky of fried rice, eggs, tocino, sausages, corned beef and orange juice, I went continental. Hehe! Arte arte lang. Pero hindi, when the kids didn't finish their plate, I consumed the left overs. Don't judge me. Ganyan naman talaga tayong mga nanay di ba? Or is it just me? =)

Unlike the Little Girl who would sit still for a photo or two, Angela was all over the place so I didn't have a decent photo of her. Tsk! Tsk!

After munching on too much food, we decided to head back to our room. Alam na! Lol! The hubby wanted to lie down for a while. Inantok ulit sa sobrang kabusugan. Haha!

The two kids wanted to go back to the pool but I decided otherwise. Killjoy mom lang! I'm bad, I know. I let them bathe in the tub instead while I watched TV. Happy na rin sila with that. =)

Our staycation ended with everyone smiling from ear to ear. We should be doing this more often, nakakatanggal ng stress. Overall, we had fun at Acacia Hotel. And sure, we're going back!

After checking out

Happy Wife

Right after my love-hate letter to my husband, I received a text from him:

Daddy: I love you mommy... sorry

Ayun naman pala! I replied right away that he's forgiven and I love him too. =)

See guys? Don't allow your pride to take over your relationship with your wife. It will only make things worse.

I'm one happy wife! Yehey!

Dear Husband

Dear Husband,

When things aren't well between us and if you are fully aware that it's mainly your fault (I'm being one-sided here, it's my blog anyway, so go ahead, write your own blog, bwahahaha), though your kisses are well appreciated, saying "SORRY" is another thing.

Despite the kisses we shared this morning, I'm still giving you a silent war. There's nothing wrong with acknowledging your mistake, it won't make you less of a man. Until then husband.

I never loved you less.

Your Wife

On my Unplanned Blogging Hiatus

I know I made myself a promise to take blogging (a little) seriously. Because honestly, since I started this humble blog of mine, anxiety attacks became less. Woohoo! Writing indeed helps.

I still haven't shared the last installment on our Acacia Hotel staycation but I promise to finish it soon. I am the laziest person on earth when it comes to transferring photos from cam to pc. Shame on me! Lol!

Moving on, it's good to hear that the distribution of relief goods has sped up for our kababayans in Visayas. Seriously, I had several sleepless nights hoping and praying that they soon find light and comfort. I just couldn't ignore my emotions that the hubby banned news at home. Hehe. Anyways, I'm done with the negative thoughts.

As the Philippines stood firm amidst the chaos caused by the typhoon, here's a positive thought to get us by:

Happy Monday folks! Let's keep the faith! =)
