One Special Night

When we were still sweethearts, Bren and I used to have dinner at any restaurant we can think of. It was usually like that  during ordinary days but the very  memorable one was when we had dinner at the Jackridge Restaurant. I've  been in the place  several times with friends but that one particular  night was special because I am with Bren. We strolled along the place and smell the cool night air as we were looking over the beautiful and colorful city of Davao. We were like  two people being  in the right place  at the right time. That moment was just perfect!

This picture brings back good old memories...

We talked about our plans, about our future and  about a lot of things as if it was our first and last night together. After all those years, I can still feel the same excitement every time I am with Bren. We still talk a lot and laugh together about anything and everything. I am praying for more years of love and laugh with Bren. Indeed, I am one lucky woman to have him in my life.

Anniversary Countdown

I am so excited because in a few days Bren and I will be celebrating our 3rd Wedding Anniversary! We have been together since 2002 as sweethearts, so we are practically together for 9 years! Imagine, 9 long years!!! Haha... Life with Bren is just so wonderful. I thank God for giving him to me. And as we do our anniversary countdown, let me share with  you a piece of our memorable moments. 

Thank you Chu for those beautiful years. I live, learn, love and became who I am today because of you. Your presence in my life made me whole.  I always thank the Lord for you and I will be forever grateful for the day that I met you. I love you very much and looking forward for more years of love and happiness together.


Looking for an Android Phone

My hubby's Nokia N95 cellular phone has been with him even before we got married and in less that two weeks from now we will be celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary. Can you just imagine how old and how long it is with him?  Bren is not really a "techy" person but just a few months ago his N95 started to give him some problems so he thought of buying a new cellular phone.

At first the flex was no longer working so  we have it  repaired and mind you it was costly. Then just after a week  it again  needs  reformatting because there were some problem on sending and receiving messages. And  it doesn't end there, the latest was last month wherein we need to change its LCD. 

Under Repair Nokia N95

Just recently, despite all those repairs his ever dearest cellular phone is still causing him headache  because the LCD is not as good as the original and it is a bit darker. He is  now seriously  looking for a new phone preferably an Android Phone. Hubby is presently  researching on what  brand and model is best for him. Owning an Android phone is  quite costly but Bren is determined  to have one in the near future. 

While browsing the net, Bren and I have read about Samsung's newest Android Phone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.  The phone is said to be the product of Samsung and Google's joint venture and set to be launched on November.

I just hope Bren wouldn't go for  the super expensive Android Phone. I am actually lulling him to get a post paid plan from any network provider for him to get a free phone from the plan. He said that he will think about it and I pray that he will  because if it happens it is going to be a big relief on me and my budget.

A Day With My Dad

I woke up very excited last Wednesday morning because I will be  having a long day with my dad whom I called Papa. It is a very rare opportunity for the both of us to go on a "date", I mean  having time for ourselves alone. Papa is the type of person that is most of the time quite and reserved. You will seldom hear him talk  but when he does it is surely full of sense and wisdom. He always knew when to talk and when to listen and most of the time he is a good listener. On the other side,  he is  approachable, easy  and fun to be with. 

We agreed day before that since I will be going near the Commission on Elections (Comelec) Office, I invited him to come along and register as a new voter in Davao. He said that he last voted in 1983 and he couldn't even remember the names of the politicians he voted. LOL! I think my dad was overly  excited because  when I woke up that morning he was all dressed up and ready to go. Haha! As usual, I am an hour late...

It was a very unforgettable day. Papa and I practically hang out almost the whole day. After taking our lunch, he accompanied me to the bank where I opened an account to buy my domain. We headed to Land Transportation Office in Ecoland thinking of applying a Student Permit for both of us. I was given twice already  but has expired before I applied for  a license. I think Papa never had a driver's license. I am just not sure if he is afraid of driving but I heard stories that he met an accident before while driving a motorcycle and from then on he never dared to drive any vehicle.

I was so happy when he finally decided to apply for a Student Permit because he is now practicing how to  drive  the motorcycle that my brother left him. I was kind of  disappointed when his application was not processed  in the LTO that day  because he does not have a birth certificate. I am currently working for the  late registration of  it. Hopefully, it will be finished  before this year ends.

I super enjoyed that day and my sister even called to congratulate Papa on his Comelec registration and of course on our date. I hope to have more bonding moments with my Papa in the coming days. You know, my dad is so cool and fun to be with.
