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?

On Medication

On Medication

I treated myself with Benadryl capsule and Neozep and it worked for me. I’m free from my illness after 48 hrs.

We gave Ascof and Paracetamol for antibiotic to Gabi and it worked for her. No more sleepless night for us whenever she had a breathing problem due to her runny nose.

My husband drank Doxycycline and put a Maridan drops to his canker sore.

As you can imagine, everybody’s unwell. I swear that that day was one of the worst days my family encountered this year. I had a runny nose and foggy head, literally a headache, my daughter, Gabi, have a cough and a runny nose and my husband had a flu and canker sore.

It’s not a good memory as I can recall, I do hope that everybody’s well in the future. Health is really wealth.

Davao People’s Park

Davao People’s Park

We went to Davao to attend the 2nd birthday party of my little niece Colyn and stayed for couple of days. One of the places we’ve been is the famous Davao People’ Park. I’ve been there like a lot of times, but this time is different I’m with my Gabi. It was 6am when we got there, a lot of people in to physical fitness, some jogs, walk or just sit by and enjoying the view.

The sculptured Mandaya People in Davao People’s Park portraying the idea on aiming high while touching the ground, I’m not sure if everybody thinks of it that way as I do and yeah deep thinking.

It was all mixed up to amuse people from any walks of life. There’s this cartoon characters like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, a place intended for kids. I got curious why Mickey Mouse and the rest of the gang were painted on the Comfort Room Area. My Gabi love Mickey Mouse and the hotdog song so even if I tried to put her attention away, she’d whine and still point on those Mickey Mouse Club paints, I had no choice but take her there.

The best part in Davao People’s Park is the bird feeding place. She had fun chasing those birds while being fed by strangers.

Too bad we weren’t there for the night show. They failed to witness the dancing fountain.

Body Detoxification Later

Its been a while since I told everyone I’m going for a body detoxification. Actually I was having my doubts if it will affect my baby’s health since I am still breastfeeding her. Luckily it’s still good as long I will have 1,800 calories of food intake, and fruit juices are strongly advised.

But there are loads of articles I read that It’s harmful for my baby, “You do not want to detoxify while breastfeeding because the released toxins will migrate into your milk.” they say. I’m still nursing my baby, so until then. I’m thinking of another options and it’s about going green, eating less carbs and more fibrous foods. Mmm that will do for now.

Any suggestions?

My Thupsi-kun a Pomeranian Spitz (2009-2010)

My Thupsi-kun a Pomeranian Spitz (2009-2010)

Thupsi was the first pet I ever loved as long as I can remember. We had pets in our house but I didn’t paid much attention. Thupsi was a Pomeranian spitz. My boyfriend (husband) gave me a two month old pomeranian spitz as a gift on my graduation. It was the first time that we have a high breed pet since we usually have azkals given to us by our neighbors and family friends. My parents didn’t bother to buy for a high breed cutie puppies as it’s really expensive.

Thupsi was loved by everyone, my mother bought her foods and shampoos. She loves to take a bath and loved to be pampered and groomed, one of pomeranian’s favorites I guess. My siblings liked to play with her. She’s a smart puppy, a territorial one and would not easily be frightened by anything. She knows where to poop or to pee so we don’t worry much about her waste.

We’d given her a vaccination, immunization and anti-rabies injection. One time, she’d been sick so I rushed her to city veterinarian for free drugs. Injected her with a penicillin-based anti-biotic. But only to found her getting worse, her gums and lips turned violet so I really panicked. I don’t understand why the city vet cannot explain to me what’s wrong with my pet. I heard that there were many incidents that the city vet is really not in good help with that matter. Their dogs die and there’s nothing they can do about it. There were many complains but nobody dare to file for a legal complain.

Then we rushed her to the nearest veterinarian private clinic without a minute waste. We learned that a Pomeranian spits has a severe allergic reaction to a penicillin-based drugs and allergic to chocolates, which leads to indigestion. He prescribed the right drugs, antibiotics and she gets well again.

City Mayor’s Office Business Permit and Licenses Division: Issuance of Permits

I didn’t know that there’s a paper process in terminating a business until  Isagani Capitle was asking for a list of requirements of what documents required in terminating a business. I asked my friend, Richelle de Dios, who is currently working at the City Mayor’s Office, and I’m sure is a reliable source. Here’s the requirements for closure/terminating a business.

List of Requirements in Terminating a Business Permit:

  1. Create a letter first, Letter for Closure of Business address to the City Mayor.
  2. Prepare your last receipt of the previous business permit.
  3. Permits & Licenses Division facilitator will assist for the rest of the closure.

My father happened to meet a minor car accident last Saturday that is why we’ve been staying for days at my parent’s house these past few days. On weekdays there’s nobody to stay with him during daytime as my mother’s at work and youngest brother’s at school. He’s not disabled or something, he only had minor scrapes and bruises in his face and legs but that’s just it. I accompanied him to visit an outpatient doctor at Elizabeth Hospital and have his head and chest x-ray checked. The doctor prescribed medications for muscle pains. He seems pretty normal without any bone fracture. Thank God about that.

Our work is through net so we can be able to be anywhere, anytime as long as we have a good internet reception/connection. That is why we end up accompanying him.  He felt lonesome. One of the signs of aging I guess?

One night I went to the bathroom without switching the lights, it’s really dark but I can still remember the meter away from the kitchen, how many footsteps in the living room going to the bathroom. And suddenly I realized that I’ve been living for two decades here in this very house. I grew up here, had my childhood, puberty and adolescence. Every nook and crook of this house, i knew the story behind and had been a part of our lives.

The living room that once was full and alive, with pet, cousins and siblings watching movies or tv series together, now is a silent place with only my father watching tv alone and drinking his Gran Matador Brandy, the only thing that made his day. LOL.

The kitchen and dining area with ten hungry people waiting for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner keeps the area noisy and busy, full of laughter now seems to be quiet, inhibited and only my father  to cook his lunch.

I, now understand why suddenly he’s been very kind and very accommodating to us different from the person we knew (loud, grumpy and hot tempered). Good thing  my husband can talk to him about anything from his field of interest, they’ll sit and talk for hours. He’d be happy if our daughter called him “daddy”, he’d be happy if his other granddaughter Colyn would be on the phone.

He misses us and he’s missing the life of the house.

It’s amazing how time ticks and how it passes by, how people passes us by. But one thing’s for sure, there will always be a certain time and place that you will always remember that you and your love ones shared and cherished. This was, still and will always be my home.
