What 80s Karaoke Song Are You?



You Are "Like a Virgin"



If you were transported back to the 80s, your life would be all about absorbing everything.

You are practically a virgin (or born again virgin) when it comes to the 80s, and all things 80s are very interesting to you.



You would sign your heart out to every Madonna hit and memorize every line in the Breakfast Club.

You'd have the biggest record collection, roller skate like a champ, and would be a dead ringer for Molly Ringwald or Kirk Cameron!

The Chocolate Oracle



What Your Taste in Chocolate Says About You



You are sweet, mellow, and easily satisfied.

You don't like anything too intense and dramatic.

Deep down, you're a kid at heart... and you're nostalgic for the past.



You are passionate and full of life.

You fall in love easily, and you tend to have whirlwind relationships.

Your passion sometimes does get the better of you. You have a crazy temper!



You love to be in love. You crave romance, whether you're single or not.

You feel lost when you don't feel passion... you need someone to adore.

Finding her father

Readers must have missed me, as usual, haven't found the time to blog. But well, exciting things have happenned. Just out of the blue, we've found a long-lost relative we are eager to meet!

I'm referring to Jessica Grace, my brother-in-law's daughter of 14 years, whom he's never met.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Yes, that's her with her mother. Sad to say, those are just the pictures we have of Jessica for now but her mother hopefully will give us more.

In my hubby's family, we sometimes wished we've known this little girl. We did not have a name or a picture. As for myself, I so wanted to get a glimpse of her but I'm usually always the last. I've heard through the years that passed that her mother was in town (she's now residing in Singapore). I heard too that the little girl is studying in a private school here. But no one among my in-laws attempted to find her after one or two years of trying. Jessica's mother has vowed never to show the child to her father or family. It was kind of a vow required by her aunts and uncles.

Years passed, here she is and is now 14. Intelligent,outgoing and so pretty!

It was just this past year that she inquired of her father. This time her mother can no longer evade her questions. So finally she told her, and goodness, Jessica confessed that she somehow knew because of the people in the community. After all, we live in a closely-knit community that people easily know each other if not by face, then by name. She has heard from teachers at our high school who comment that she reminds them of John and Sharon. Surprising too, her godmother who used to be our neighbor gave her bits of news. We never suspected!

It's very timely that she showed up, as I was updating the list of our family tree and muttered to myself, if only I knew Malou's last name or at least give a name to this little girl! Then voila! a week later, we saw them at the town market. This time, too, her mother approached us and willingly introduced Jessica to us. Before we parted, I (always the filekeeper) -asked of their contact number.

Now here's how their part of the family tree looks: see the big picture here

Photobucket

(Shh, that's just simple - you haven't seen my mother-in-law's branches yet!!! haha!)
okay, seriously...


I sometimes wish we can easily reach John, but he is really missing. Relocated to someplace where we cannot reach him nor his family. He used to reside in La Union but now we have no idea where they are. As my brother- and sister-in-laws would say, it's better not to get in touch with him yet and easier for everyone's nerves. Because when we do - exciting or rattling things just happen. Let me describe John in 2 songs: he's Jim in Bon Jovi's "Someday I'll Be Saturday Night" and he's the guy described in Eagle's "Take It Easy".

Still I have not said a word about this yet in my blog, but yes, on my hubby's side of the family, life is an adventure!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Still we miss him at times. When he was younger he lived with us at our Dagupan residence. This was in 1992. He was close to our eldest - that's Brownie with him in the pictures. He took care of Brownie most of the time then. John's a laidback person, cracks hilarious jokes, gives "words of wisdom" to his nephews. He's also a jack-of-all-trades type so when we need to get a job done, he's sure to assist. As he got older, he became this hard-working and responsible father towards his children - I refer to his daughters from two relationships Gabrielle in 2000 and the other two at present.

That is what we tell Jessica, the good qualities of her father. We share all the nice memories we have of John. We also show her all of the pictures - mostly Christmas pictures we still have of John from 1992-94, about the time her mother and father were still together. (And we were surprised to find a picture of her mother in the background!)

Happy New Year!

Photobucket


Happy New Year to all!

I enjoyed the celebration of New Year's Eve today however simple it was. What mattered most was I celebrated with my whole family and also with my sister-in-law's family.

But still I couldn't resist work, I just felt I had to keep busy and maintain my "workaholic-mukhang-pera-status" I opened shop until 12 midnight and would've gone on until 10 the nextday (as requested by the young people addicted to Cabal Online) but I thought that would be too much abuse for MY mind and body on the first day of the year.

Ooh, I didn't take pictures of the events that happened on New Year's Eve. I'll see if I can borrow my SIL's phone to upload a few.

What did we do in celebration of the new year this time? We decorated a few balloons inside the house, my SIL made spaghetti, my hubby made chicken-vegetable salad, arrozcaldo and I once again made a buko-pandan dessert. I also quickly copied from IMEEM plenty of fast songs beginning with Auld Lang Syne and continuing to songs from 1981-1990. Just songs that can make me feel happy.







happy new year
What we did at 12 midnight : watch most of our neighbors' fireworks (and exclaim ' there goes my 500 pesos!') It was lovely though, and for the very first time I've seen a shower of colorful fireworks light up just above me (mostly thanks to our new next-door-neighbor who lit their fireworks up)
What we did after the fireworks display: My SIL and I gossipped with my cousin Roger,hahaha! That's so bad of us, eh? *shrug* Can't help it.... we were laughing about a relative's hallucinations kasi.
And the joyful feeling continued until the next day. I still opened shop at 8am and closed at 9pm. We made well for the first day. (Naka-650 naman kami, for the first time) The rest of the afternoon we listened to my hubby's usual "one bucket of stories" like his experience in caregiver school, ghost stories, childhood memories in mining community... etcetera, etcetera. He never runs out of those. (warning: some may not be true... heheheheh!)

Later, one of my "long time no see" friends dropped by for a short visit. Amazing, as I haven't seen her in twelve years! It was a nice surpise to see her again with her hubby and kids too.
Towards the evening, my hubby and I met with my sister-in-law and hubby at the town plaza to "watch" whatever was there - supposedly Mangaldan's New Year's celebration and awarding of boardpassers and other chuvachenes. But we ended up just sitting on the picnic table by the entrance because the place was too crowded. Naughty me and my SIL.... we just counted all the bakla we saw walking past because they seem to be everywhere! I lost in our bet as I can't seem to spot a bakla in a second. ( I must be still living in the eighties doing the silliest of things)
I'm just so happy the new year began well and with much joy and laughter. I wish everyone the same happiness and greet you all a great and positive year ahead!
