Captured and a Ring Tag---A 2 In 1

The Ring Tag

Why should the wedding ring be worn on the fourth finger? There is a beautiful and convincing explanation given by the Chinese.....

* Thumb represents your Parents.
* Second (Index) finger represents your Siblings.
* Middle finger represents your-Self.
* Fourth (Ring) finger represents your Life Partner. & the . . .
* Last (Little) finger represents your children.

Firstly, open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers and hold them together - back to back.
Secondly, open and hold the remaining three fingers and the thumb - tip to tip. (As shown in the figure below.

Now, try to separate your thumbs (representing the parents)..., they will open, because your parents are not destined to live with you lifelong, and have to leave you sooner or later. Please join your thumbs as before and separate your Index fingers (representing siblings)...., they will also open, because your brothers and sisters will have their own families and will have to lead their own separate lives.

Now join the Index fingers and separate your Little fingers (representing your children)...., they will open too, because the children also will get married and settle down on their own some day. Finally, join your Little fingers, and try to separate your Ring fingers (representing your spouse). You will be surprised to see that you just CANNOT..... because Husband & Wife have to remain together all their lives - through thick and thin!! Please try this out and pass............. ISN'T THIS A LOVELY THEORY?

I would like to thank these ladies who shared with me this wonderful tag. Katherine of Mom’s Place and Beng of Beng’s Entertainment Spree .
I will open this tag to everyone. Please share your ring moment with us.


Thanks Chris of The Mommy Journey

Sunday Was Monsters vs Aliens Night

30 March 2009

It was quite a lazy sunday for us. After going to church in the morning, we went home to get some sleep again. It's a good thing that my son was having that same mood too. From Friday until Saturday, I got busy with various activities and appointments. Pedia appointment in the morning, groceries in the afternoon, photo shoot in the evening and a family reunion the following day. Sunday night, we went with our instincts, I was so damn lazy to prepare dinner, had to eat out, and decided to watch a Family movie.
Everyone was raving about this 3D movie. Gateway Cineplex was the movie house to be. After buying our tickets (Php271), went to Starbucks to wait for the time, and to relax some more. Bought some burritos from Taco Bell and went inside with our 3D glasses. It's movie time!
By the way, the glasses are not for free, how I wish.
Monsters vs. Aliens is a computer animated film, 3-D feature film from Dream Works and Paramount Pictures. This is the first computer animated movie produced in real 3-D instead of converting the film into 3-D after it is finished.-source-
A meteorite that contained an element called Quantonium hits Susan Murphy that turned her into a giant monster. She was taken to a secret government compound where she met a group of monsters taken from other encounters over the years. Far away from earth, an Alien (Gallaxhar voiced by: Rainn Wilson) was after this Quantonium to make a new world of his own. Using one of his Alien Bots, he was able to track the Quantonium inside Susan Murphy (aka Ginormica). With the US government all pushed to the edge, they had no choice but to use the monsters against the aliens.

Dr. Cockroach (Hugh Laurie), a mad scientist turned himself into a cockroach hybrid, BOB (Seth Rogen), the gelatinous, mass brought to life in an experiment gone wrong, The Missing Link (Will Arnett), Lizard- Man from the Black Lagoon event, and the humongous-sized mutant larvae Insectosauru. Including, Susan Murphy (aka Ginormica).
It was a fun movie :D Considering that it was also my first 3D experience and my son's too. The price was a good Php 271, we got free popcorns. You guys should watch it with your kids, they'll love it.

I'm Setting Up A Portrait Studio!

And my dad is funding everything. I can see that he is pouring all the time and support to something he was very passionate about. Note: was very passionate about. It's not that he doesn't like it anymore. It's reality speaking, he has work, he's getting old and he has other plans for the future.
So now, that I have the medium and the interest, he thought why not do it again .This time, through his daughter. I have been very much into portraits since I got my DSLR. Even with a digital camera, most of the time, I take snapshots of people, friends and families. It's one of the best subjects around that will not require so much time and money. This Studio project? If you think that it is going to be a waste of money and time, since I have no background. This is how we do things...Believe me, anything that will make us smile and happy. Besides, there's not a day within the week that we don't take pictures. By the way, my mom is a commercial model before, and my sister studied modeling in Abs-Cbn. They need to update their portfolios too. Right now, I am holding 2 portfolios of my sister Ella, 1 with our cousins. And just recently my sister Les, who had hers made.

These photos are made with resources I have at home. Lamp shades, a black cloth for the background, hair and make-up by moi, the smiles by her (Les). I had to ask her to hold one of the lamps for some effect. And out of 50 pictures, I was only able to choose, 10 good ones. It was a bit frustrating after the shoot. 10 out of 50? But putting into mind the words of Rene Salta... Entry Here I thought, I just need to practice some more and maximize every equipment used and search for better angles.
I am no photographer wanna-be. It just so happen, that I am very much into taking pictures and the fact that I own a camera. Why not right? And to be honest, I also wanted a portfolio for myself. I was looking for a new headshot to go with my sites, I can't find a new one. Nothing for me.

Mommy Moments---Summer Time!

26 March 2009

mommy moments

Let me give you a glimpse of the places we've been to since we blossomed into a happy family. We never went far to go swimming. We had no means and time to go all the way to Visayas and Mindanao just to enjoy a fun-filled day under the sun. Luzon alone, has fine beaches and destinations of all kinds.
Subic Bay (May 2005)
Sabangan Beach Laiya, Batangas (2007)
Clubhouse Swimming Pool (April 2008)
Original 1949 Laguna Hot Spring (2008)
Sabangan Beach Laiya, Batangas (2008)

A little info,after all these. We still prefer to swim during the months of June to August. Simply because, we find the summer sun bad for the skin, especially for the kids. Here in the Philippines, the months mentioned are considered to be the start of the wet season (rainy season). Most of the time, we're still blessed with some sun and waves to enjoy, even during these months. We pay for the off-season rates and a bonus, that we have the beach or the pool all to ourselves.

Me Time: The Family Man

25 March 2009

Tuesday Night was another chance for some Me Time again. My husband was still at work, my son slept early, a good meal of Pork Afritada, Corn Kernels, Hot Jasmine Rice and The Family Man waiting for me to start.

I went through old piles of original VCDs the other day. Boy we had a lot. Since Dvds costs so much then, VCDs were the next best thing..

Same picture to be shown, not as clear unlike with a DVD and it goes with the trouble of changing the disc after the other. I didn't mind, I was caught between watching Blast From The Past or The Family Man. Clearly both Family movies are great, might as well go with the more serious one first.
The Family Man was shown in 2000. It was one of the nicest movies of Nicolas Cage. Jack Campbell, a successful businessman, was happily living his life. Single, rich, successful, what will a man want on Christmas Eve/Day, but to nail a big time deal as Christmas gift for himself. Christmas night, he decided to take a walk home.
Passed by a shop for some eggnogs, encountered a life changing experience that led him waking up with a new life the following day.

He's married to Kate, lives in New Jersey and has two kids. Kate played by Téa Leoni was the old girlfriend whom he left for London. Kate wanted a normal life with Jack, but he chose a different path that ended their sweet relationship.

Jack was having a hard time understanding the glimpse of his life as a Family Man. Part of it, he was trying to get back his Luxurious life as a single person, which he worked for 13 years. As he went through discovering Family Life, he learned a lot of things. The value of relationships, the happiness that a Family can give that Money can't provide, and of course, the unconditional love.

I was thinking of my husband the whole time while watching the movie. I am grateful for the life I have now. With my family...
This was a great movie. I'm buying the DVD :D

Inspirations: The Virtuous Woman

24 March 2009

Inspirations from My Personal Promise Bible...

She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Proverbs 31:10-31 NIV

May God Give You The Best Of Everything, Everyday...

This Is It---I Think...

I had another change of layout today for Sweet Nothings...My apologies again.

I have been looking for the right theme that will make my site look simple, neat and interesting, all at the same time. For the past 5 months, I have been experimenting on different types of templates. And the last one was a 3 column layout. It didn't work according to my expectations.
So here I am, done with another look and form.

I think this is the one I have been looking for. It's not all cluttered- up, the entries are viewable, the page uploads fast and the combination of colors are so sweet in the eyes. Just right for the site title.

To add a little something-something, I tried uploading my own header. For some reason or reasons it won't show.

Anyway, with these constant change, I am very thankful for the continuous drops and visits. It is very much appreciated.

My Warmest Hugs!

~ Parenting Style ~

1. Do you exercise full or minimal control over your child’s / children’s behavior?
Yes! I make sure that my son knows that "I'm The Boss"

2. Do you expect your child / children to obey 100% or let her / him / them do what pleases her / him / them?
No, I'm not expecting 100% from my son. He's going to be a big boy soon.He was created to be a different person. He's free to do whatever he pleases. It's our job as parents to lead and guide our children towards the path to goodness.

3. Do you welcome discussion or you simply set rules?
I am very open for discussions. I weigh things through that.

4. Do you reprimand?

5. Do you use spanking for punishment?

6. Do you use some kind of a reward System for motivation?
Yes, but in a very healthy way and purpose. It motivates the child to do better all the time.

7. Do you enjoy being a Parent?
Of course, who doesn't! It made me appreciate life more, and my bond with my husband, became stronger than ever.

8. Are you a hands-on Parent or do you have a full-time Nanny?
I am a hands-on parent. My husband and I agreed for me to stay at home full-time. We don't trust (100%) anybody else aside from family, to handle our kid or kids.

9. At what age would you let your child make simple decisions for himself / herself?
Now! He can make simple decisions already. We let him decide on simple situations, like getting caught between 2 toys.

10.Do you and your Husband have the same Parenting Style?
Nope. We meet in the middle, when it comes to discipline.

~ Wife Style ~

7. How long have you been married?
5 years

8. How do you feel about being a Wife?
I feel very, very special. I feel like a child, with all the love and care I get from my husband.

9. What has been your typical sleeping attire since you got married?
Still the same from my usual. Pajamas and socks.

10. How do you show how appreciative you are of your Husband?
I thank him all the time...whether he gives me something of none. I say I Love You as much as I want to.

11. What do you do when your Husband annoys you?
I surprise him with a prank. I don't get mad that easily, like seriously. In the end, we'll be caught laughing at each other.

12. You are buying or planning to buy your first house as Husband and Wife….
Yes, we are in the process of planning, gathering more info. Plus, we're not in a hurry, we want it to be perfect. Something to be preserved for our children and grandchildren.

13. How does your house look like at the end of the day when Hubby gets home?
Depends on what day? Monday---stuff around from a weekend activity. Tuesday---Laundry, Wedenesday---I have dry clothing piled up somewhere (for folding) Thursday---the whole place is free from clutter, but not from my son's toys, Friday---definitely, my husband will come home to a well-organized and clean home.

14. How do you feel about running a household?
Like a QUEEN! :D

15. What is the sweetest gift you have given your Husband so far?
I think his Bubble Footspa Massager. That's 100% pampering, which Calvin Klein or Giorgio Armani can't give. :D

Weekend Snapshots

Looking through his patient eyes...Patient while waiting for the traffic light :D
One of the things I like to take a picture of, are my husband's eyes. I'm so into it. They're super light brown. On our way to TriNoma last Saturday, the sun was facing our car, I tried to get a shot. It wasn't a good one, the color didn't show. But I like how he looked at the camera. I'll try it again with good lighting.

Sunday, we went to visit my parents. Our usual Sunday family day. Only, we had to make some things related to business too.
With the help of my sisters, we tried making our own pasta for the very first time...Who said that my Hotel and Restaurant Training will not be of use!? I'm using it! I'm using it! :D
It was a very easy while making the dough. But it went pretty hard as we moved on making the pasta itself.
Over-all, it was a giant success! The texture of the pasta was perfect. Yahoo!

What kept you over the weekend? Come share!

Mommy Moments---Bonding Time With Cousins

20 March 2009

mommy moments
Since my son is still the only child, most of his bonding moments with other kids are with his cousins. We have plans to have another one soon... :D From my husband's side he has 4 or 5 second cousins, all are in the US. And from mine, he has 2 (first cousins) both are my brother's children.

The kids love playing with water all the time. You just have to watch, they might get into an accident. After this basin moment with his Ate, the following day, we all went to Laguna Hot Springs. It's the only appropriate swimming destination for the month of December. The water is warm.
This was taken last year, with their lolo (my dad). We stopped-over a gasoline station on our way to Laiya Batangas. My nephew celebrated his birthday there.

Lastly, was my son's 4th birthday last year. Again, there weren't that much children around. My son's world evolved around with his cousins. It's one of the things we want to settle as soon as possible, a nicer and more family-friendly home in the near future. Condos are not really good for family-living.

A Woman's Tale---“Blog to the world; Blog for you and me”

19 March 2009

I decided to use this title because it best describes me as a person. And most of all, as the Blogger I am today. My journey as a blogger is basically compose of my travel from being a first time mom aiming, to become a fulfilled parent.
I became interested to blog in 2004. I was reading celebrity blogs then. I found it fun and exciting looking at pictures and reading stories about them. Putting myself at the author's position, it is indeed something to look forward to everyday.
From then, I got stuck with reading somebody else's blog. I got too busy establishing family life . And it wasn't very easy. I had to put my interests at the bottom of my priority list. But then, we were able to get through all the trials and tough times together. Maybe that's why I got married to him...we were meant to help each other...With blogging as my new passion in life, his support is just amazingly overwhelming!

My story starts here:

I may have started late creating my own zen in the blogosphere, but my stories will remain . I gotta hand it to a friend, she was the one who led me, in a way, inspired me to blog.
I knew this person since we were kids. She moved to another country. From there, she told her stories through her blog in Multiply. It was very inviting. Until I finally felt the excitement, the unexplained feeling on sharing my own stories.

And so I started with Multiply too...My first successful site was entitled One Woman’s Tale . It was the only site that made it for 1 year.

While at it, I decided to create a Blogger site, just for the sake of trying something new. And I must admit, it's more fun than Multiply. The wave of sites is longer. It's more interactive and the opportunity for discovery and learning is wider. With what I am enjoying, definitely, SWEET NOTHINGS will turn 1 this year :D

My blog entries goes around my Personal and Family Life. The sad moments I have encountered, the happy times I spent with family and friends, the places and events that have captured our interests. A Woman's Tale is said to be my life's journey through the hardships, laughter, love and to finally finding the true meaning of happiness. This is in search of happiness for every good deed done, for every story that has been told and for every experience made.

Part of this, lessons are also learned. The person whom I have mentioned who "inspired" me, was also the individual who added spice and conflict to my blogging life. There came a moment that our point of views didn't meet, and I eventually gave up. I must admit, I viewed my life as something that is close to perfect. It was a situation to think about...I had to let go. And once in awhile in life, we need something hot in- between. It was the challenge that made my blogging journey a bit complicated. I faced it, I conquered.

Letting go made everything better, not perfect. I was always at my best. It was finally a chance to breath some more of that fresh air. It became my moment to come out of my shell.

Of course, if you lose someone, you gain more in return. I found a new home for a new site here on Blogger. I was able to expand my wings as a mom-writer, met new friends, moms like no other. It was breathtaking! I can never find another place like this, where people can be so friendly and thoughtful. I kept my friendship with those Mom Bloggers. As a matter of fact, one of them gave me the link to Lainy’s Blog Contest. Thanks to Chris of The Mommy Journey! These people inspire me. My everyday is incomplete without them, and I am very happy to serve as an inspiration to these guys too.


I noticed that I have been using this word a lot. Two of the no. 1 inspirations in life, is my faith and my family. Without something to believe in, and a reason serving also as a purpose, it's hard for a person to move- on. There should be someone and something that will stand as a good example, as a life motivator and again as an Inspiration...I have my faith to hold onto and my family...
To live as my life's purpose
using inspiration to---
“Blog to the world; Blog for you and me”

Meet The Husband


My husband is a very private person. He asked me not to share too much of him on my blogs and sites. If you noticed, I seldom make posts with our family pictures. I think it's okay. In a way, there's this part of my life that remains a mystery.

One of my daily activities with my other half, is going online with him on YM. He's in the office and I'm at home.

We just talk, and of course we want to see each other. It's so fun chatting with him. He literally tells me stories about the latest activities at their workplace, on what's keeping him busy, I ask him if he had lunch already and where he ate.

Yesterday, he talked to me, made fun of this halloween mask.

I don't know if I'll get scared or if I'll feel so-yucky about it, or if I'll get angry. Anyway, it's one of those moments when he is in the mood for some teasing. It's a good thing he's not anywhere near... it will scare the hell out of me.

I Have A Visa---Just Waiting For The Right Time

Just to clear things for those people who knew that I applied for a Visa last year. And who thought that our trip didn't push because I got denied. Well, I have a Visa, all 3 of us have Visas. For my husband, he got his first Visa when he was still a kid (if I'm not mistaken).

We're suppose to fly over to Atlanta Georgia late fall of last year. But due to more important reason/s...we decided to cancel it. We're just taking everything one at a time. We have more serious things to ponder on right here, in our Mother home. Like education, housing and health.

I just realized that we were blessed to have options available at this time of crisis. That it brought so much good for the past 6 months, since we decided not to go. We made the right decision. Although, it also brought disappointment for some, who 's been expecting us...but we know they'll truly understand and see the lighter side of things.
