Meet Me

Photos : My family, my high school yearbook photo, and Cookie's family.

I am proud to say that my my eventful world revolves around my loving husband and my two super active daughters. I am also busy with Homeworked, my high school batch site and PMN. If you ask about social life, that would again involve my husband and my two kids. And the virtual social life I go through with Homeworked, my high school batch site and PMN.

Boring, nah! I've had gazillions of crazy adventures and misadventures when I was single. The highlight of which was the mistaken identity story between me and my husband. Waking up everday with my family is enough to excite me now. Babaw ng kaligayahan, no? I jealously try to keep my old friends and work hard to rediscover the old ones; yet I am ready to embrace the new ones who's faces I only see in their blogs, who's words inspire me.

I love a good joke, surprises, and butterfly kisses. I hate being pushed, indecision and unpunctuality. I love vanilla ice cream but hates chocolate ice cream. I am a friend who would stick with you forever, no matter what, but you would also hear from me when you are not right! Since I became a mom, I try very hard to see only the good; but I wont dismiss the bad especially if there is something that can be done to turn it around. I am a cool one, but I do burst once in a while. I used to be tech savvy, but that was 7 years ago. Now I am satisfied just to be able to successfully log in, blog, create a link, download a photo and post a comment!

If you want to know more, you might want to read the blog I wrote about my name here. If not, well, nothing :-)

This is a getting to know you more tag from schroochchronicles. Her real name is Pauline, and is nicknamed Cookie. She also answers to Kongkong, among others. She's wife to her bestfriend and soulmate; and a mother to two adorable little angels fondly called Hezbollahs or sometimes The Kutos (sarap tirisin). I read her blog because she entertains me a lot. And my kids have an invitation to enjoy a weekend playtime with the neighborhood kids, thanks Cookie!

And here are the instructions for this meme:

1st step - Post a short blog article that includes a photograph (or a series of photos) showing the face behind your blog. If you already showed a photo somewhere on your site (such as in your about page), then make your post more interesting and choose a photo that’s not currently online.

2nd step - Include links to other people that have displayed a photo, or include their photos in your post, adding a reference.

3rd step - Tag as many others as you like in your post to spread the meme.

4th step - If you link back to me here and send an email (; I’ll be sure to include links back to you. Each person tagged should create their own post and repeat the process.

I am excited to know more about mitch, KK, Rach and Christianne.
