A Cissus Sicyoides is commonly known as Millionaire Vine, Princess Vine or Ivy Curtain

A Cissus Sicyoides is commonly known as Millionaire Vine, Princess Vine or Ivy Curtain

Alright, I stand corrected by my mother-in-law. One morning she paid us a visit and admired my garden.  She told me that that our vine is not a Buhok ni Maria vine as I have been told, it was something else and it’s on the tip of her tongue. She’s a Bio Professor in MSU GenSan, can’t argue with her about that, I’m not good in naming plants I just plant and plant them right away! As long as it’s good in the eye and helps us for shading.

Then after that I’ve been googling about the name of the vine and all I can see close enough is Spanish moss

The once I thought was Buhok ni Maria is an aerial plant and it looked like this:

My husband has been curious about the name since, so he googled the right keywords and voila! Here it is! Its name is Cissus sicyoides or commonly known as millionaire vine, princess vine or ivy curtain. It is from Vitaceae family such as grapevine and stuffs. It said to be a herbal medicine a remedy for diabetes. Just another benefit that we can get from our garden.  The Millionaire Vine tips of its roots will turn into pink after its being cut from your desired length to hang.

Wedding Souvenirs

Wedding Souvenirs

These were my creations, my babies. See, brides are all about the gowns of bridesmaids, decorations and not to mention the obsession for a very nice wedding souvenir. It took me awhile to decide either to include it on the wedding package, or to purchase at a retail store. But my artistry gave me the urge to do something about it. I decided to make my own wedding souvenirs, with the help of my friends and sure we have had a lot of fun while finishing these wedding souvenirs.

Our wedding souvenirs were only intended for the Principal Sponsors. Since we’re in the modern age and wedding souvenirs could be anything. We hired EZ Capture Photo Booth, My husband do the photo lay-out (he’s a bit maarte about it). It’s less messy than doing hundreds of wedding souvenirs, less complicated. Their service was very good, they gave us a soft copy afterwards for those who had failed to get a photocopy  since it served as our wedding souvenir. Well, everybody’s happy as long as it’s on facebook!

It’s fun to do things that you love!

Marvel’s: The Avengers, Really?!

Marvel’s: The Avengers, Really?!

I watched the movie since the review is crazy and any person who had seen the movie has a high regard with it.

The Avengers is a star-studded movie. Biggest stars in the entertainment industry such as: Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johanssen as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as HawkEye, Samuel L. Jackson as Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill (Robin of How I Met Your Mother TV Series) and not to mention Tom Hiddleston as Loki, the antagonist.

I have watched some movies with a super sized casting but it seems to me that I find it boring because I expected more but only end up disappointed. I don’t watch trailers or read movie spoiler, that’s why I was surprised to see Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. So where did Edward Norton go? I got curious. Marvels: The Avenger movie might came from a comic book, but I didn’t expect it to be so comical. Like when Loki, considered as a God from a different planet with special powers just got stunned by a full fisted Hulk. It’s so hilarious I laughed my heart out! It’s a laughingstock scene!

And there goes my maybe. Maybe, Edward Norton doesn’t like the role of being a clown in the movie. I collected Edward Norton’s movies from 1990’s and up and it’s all serious movies and he’s a serious actor, no shits! After watching The Avenger, I searched for an answer and here it goes, courtesy of moviecultists.

Some would say he’s a hard-to-direct actor, a pre-madonna. But I don’t think so, he’s just a serious actor/artist who loved to make flawless movies, that’s why he’s speaking out his mind, banging out ideas whenever there’s something need to be change in a scene. So good for him on not pressing the idea of him as The Hulk in the Avengers movie and bad for the Marvels company for getting a bad reputation because they said it’s all about the money issue that’s why they didn’t get Edward for the movie.

Wedding Invitations

Wedding Invitations

At last I found them, the photos of our wedding invitations. I’ve been looking for these photos of our wedding invitations for months. I thought I’d lost it forever.

These wedding invitations were a “do-it-yourself” wedding invitations. Not your ordinary rectangular envelope, it’s a heart-shaped type of envelope. It’s a bit difficult but somehow we managed. That’s for special guests and Principal sponsors. The ticket-thingy are for friends. For people we see in day-to-day basis, who could understand that it was in a hurry. Anyway, it still looked presentable, right?

My Head is Blank!

I wanted to write, I do not know what to write. My head is blank, not actually blank I have so many things in mind but do not have one specific subject. It’s hot this day which made me feel terrible. I’m having trouble with my respiratory system. I have a cough and a runny nose. I can’t control myself to sneeze, I sneeze all the time.

There’s a brown-out rotation schedule and sometimes our feeder shuts down when I needed electricity the most.  My baby’s asleep I hope she will still sleep until 4pm. I want to tend our garden, but I don’t like to have my skin burnt. I look filthy, I look old, if I would just let myself I will be ugly forever. Not the type of a vain person I am. So I will stay inside the house, even if I’m perspiring, that’s okay, as long as I won’t let my skin burn again.

I cannot surf, the internet is down. I want to spend the rest of the afternoon, blogging, commenting, liking and see if somebody has done blogging about business establishments here in GenSan. I’d like to expand my writing through giving factual information about any businesses here in GenSan. I would like to do something else. Something like blogging about wedding stuffs, directories, updates on their latest gowns and dresses or any new amenities or services they can economically offer to the bride-to-be and groom-to-be. I haven’t finish my GenSan Matters page, I should go to LTO, NBI, NSO, Socoteco II to collect factual information about the list of requirements on acquiring a certain document or account.. ahh so much more to do. Or just log-in to facebook to catch up with friends and relatives I haven’t contacted or seen in a while.

You see, a lot has changed ever since I enter the world of marriage. I do not have the time hanging around with friends and going out at night. It’s not that my husband is strict. He’s very cool and supportive. But when I go out, I always checked my phone if my baby’s awake or has any problem. A lot of things are happening when going out and one of it is flirting. I’m all sold out, I’m not in the market anymore. It made me feel out, though I love the company that I have. I prefer to stay at home and just talk or watch quality movies, no shit movies okay?

I would love to watch The Avengers, they say it’s a good movie and I have a crush on Thor. I’m very outspoken to my husband whenever I have a physique appreciation to guys. I want to be honest with him. I already told him that I got butterflies on my stomach whenever I watch a movie of Edward Norton, Brad Pitt is my beautiful vampire, Robert Downey Jr. is very handsome in his mid 20s, Thor is very masculine but so heart melting whenever he crack a smile, he’s such a heart-throb! And he just sighed and said, “Whatever, you’re married and ugly anyway, nobody will love you like I do.” Such a mean person, he is. Hmmp!

My husband, my husband is a lot of things. He could be my friend, we watch or talk about something and laugh about it. He could be my lover, he’s such a sweet person and everybody told me that I’m not, that I am an insensitive person. Anyway since the vote is in majority I’ll accept it, I’m just an honest person doing things I like to do, hating things I do not like to do, okay? Where was I? about my husband being such a sweet person. I hate it when he’ll kiss and hug me while I’m all sweaty doing household chores. I hate it when he touches my armpit. I told him, “that’s my private part, you cannot touch that!” And he would just ignore me and do it again, it’s very irritating. I don’t have a body odor I just don’t want my armpit be touched by anyone, ever. But I love it when he simply hug me when I woke up, felt like we’ll be having a great day. He knew my limits, he knew when I am tired and he knew how to make me laugh and smile. So much about him being such a sweet person. He could be my enemy too! We argue and fight about anything, I’m pretty sure that’s normal in a couple. He won’t stop until he made me realized that my perception is wrong. He will not consider stopping until a factual information is being justified. We Filipinos are following things that are already a tradition, but without any scientific explanation, my husband won’t follow it. I’m just being vague here, cannot count the tell-tale of the fight but he would admit and apologize whenever he’s wrong, too. And yeah, that’s my husband.

Back on my runny nose, i really hate having a runny nose. I sneeze all the time, did I mention that already? I can recall my daughter having one and we ended up having a sleepless night. Poor her, poor us, we all sleep until lunch. I don’t like it when one of us has an illness. I remember my mother always went to church on Sundays. I told her, I want to be admitted in the hospital and see if who will come and visit me, so I would know who really cares. She scolded me and said, “I always go to church on Sundays and always pray that nobody would get sick, and there you are dreaming of some illness so you would know who cares. That’s a stupid, crappy idea!” I do understand now why she’s been very upset.

Life is not a game that once you fail you can restart and play the game until you win. It’s never easy. There are a lot of things I don’t understand until now, now that I am a mother. Like, why do we have to be at home before 6pm when we’re in high school? Why do we have to stay at home during Sundays, ahh family day, family that is the most important relationship you could ever attain to. It’s the basic unit of the community, that’s where your personality being mold. Unfortunately, we don’t have that basic simple living way back in my childhood that is why I got so many questions unanswered before, confusions.

What the heck, this writing has reached two-pages already. What did I just write?

Wicker Park Movie (2004)

Wicker Park Movie (2004)

Along with the loneliness and pang of pain Matthew felt is the search for his long time ex-girlfriend to whom he had excommunicated for couple of years. The agony of pain seeking for an answer of why it ended without any valid reasons made him miserable with each detective act he played searching for the girl he knew he loved and still love. Only to realize that’s somebody’s trying to tear them apart.

This is a remake movie of L’Appartement (1996) a French film. Actually I saw the L’Appartement before Wicker Park. Single ladies would love to fall in love in the name of love if they would watch this Wicker Park Movie. Josh Hartnett portrayed the role perfectly that you would wish you were the girl in the scene and turned it into reality. That’s how I felt while I’m watching the Wicker Park Movie all over again and again! Obsessions and fighting for the love of your life is what’s the Wicker Park Movie is all about.

Hayzz.. the need to fall in love, watch this Wicker Park Movie ladies. I love you Josh Hartnett!  😀
