Sweet, Sour and Salty

The theme of my womanhood in 2016 was, and continues to be, "disliking my evolution." And it's anchored on my feeling of alienation from the "me" that my husband liked in the late 90s. And how the new woman-mom, I feel, has not been able to cope with the hyper-development of my former boyfriend.

I am threatened by the nagging feeling that I am no longer the interesting, angst-ridden, opinionated, well-read, news junkie, who had a lot of things to say about politics and feminism.

I don't know how or why, but I've always felt that it's my brand of crazy that caught his fancy. I try, and try, and try. But I really don't feel any special connection with the stock market, or backpacking in Europe, or reading the news (anymore). Ang hirap magpa-charming. Tapos ang dami dami ko pang character flaws.

So everyday I am just thankful that I, would love to think, have not yet been replaced. I know, that's such an anti-women thing to say but it's how I really feel. I am so blessed to have married the love of my life. Huwag lang sanang ma-bore sa akin nang bonggang bongga habang kinakapa ko pa kung paano mahalin itong matander na version ko.

Happy 8th, my love. Pramis, maliligo na ako lagi kahit walang pasok para di ako amoy kabiguan.

Eh Bye FB and IG ulit

Actually, ilang araw na rin. Pagkakadalubhasaan ko muna ulit ang simpleng buhay. Mag-gardening muna ako, chareeeng!

Pechay de peligro

May tumubong higanteng pasa sa binti ko kaya napasugod na naman ako kay Dr. Google para sa madaliang lunas. Sa kakahanap ng alternative na paraan, napadpad ako sa isang home remedy site. Biglang lumitaw ang link sa article na ito. Aba siyempre na-curious ako. Paki-forward na lang sa mga kababaihan sa buhay mo. Baka makatulong.

Meet my Clet


"Hi, my name is Anacleta. You can call me Clet. I am Sir_Ko's gift for YummyliciousLady and I am purple because I am not allowed to be any other color. I think YummyliciousLady likes me very much. And one of these days, people will say that YummyliciousLady plays with her Clet all the time."

That was my Facebook post and I wrote it right after I held Clet for the first time. Ang saya, saya, saya!

Pleasure is yours, always.

This yuletide season, may you find joy in life's simplest pleasures. Do everything within your capabilities and capacity to find out what gives you pleasure. In moments that you find your heart's purest desires, pursue them relentlessly. You don't have to rely on anyone. You are your own pleasure machine.

Speaking of pleasure. This is us (me, BF and MP), trying to decode the pleasure points in this scene from our best "Friends." Seven zones are mentioned but recent studies indicate... twelve. How fun is that?

Have a pleasurable rest of the year and in all years to come!

Happy Birthday, Jeezaaaaaaas!


May your days be filled with love, hope and joy.


Thank you for your well wishes, support and prayers. Thank you for visiting my blog.


Please continue to pray for our little ones to always be happy, healthy and safe. And for our marriage to last all the tests of time... and the wrath of my raging hormones.

Noche Buena Mano




Hindi ako nagbabasa ng blog ko pero ako ang nagsusulat kaya sigurado ako na mga 100 times na ako nagkaroon ng post na ganito ang tema. Sa totoo, scheduled post ito. Hinahanda ko na rin ang aking sarili para sa mga gusto kong gawin forever at sisimulan sa December 23 (unang araw na wala akong pasok ngayong yuletide season). Gagayahin ko yung START-STOP-CONTINUE tapos lalagay ko ang help needed para may ambag ka naman sa ekonomiya ko.

START
  • Magbasa ulit ng libro. Minimum of one book per month
  • Swimming, thrice a week.
  • 24-hour fasting. Once a week.
  • Saving some money from my 10-25 payday allowance. Minimum P50 per week.
  • Sending one email per day to Sir_Ko

STOP
  • Smoking
  • Drinking coffee and all colored and flavored drinks (except pag may manlilibre or pag may espesyal na okasyon)
  • Extra rice

CONTINUE
  • Blogging. Minimum of three posts per week.


HELP NEEDED
  • Don't think that I've changed kung hindi muna ako sasama sa mga yosi-kape-inuman sessions until stable na ako.
  • Don't make me spend on unplanned shit. Nakakagulo sa budget ko.
  • Support me. Remind me about this post kapag nate-tempt akong gawin yung mga nasa "STOP." Pero be gentle. Masama ang ugali ko kapag binabraso ako. Yung isang stick kaya kong gawing isang kaha yan.
  • Patience. Baka mag-beast mode ako.
  • Prayers.
