Obama said, 'Yes we can!' but I said, 'Yes weekend!' I plan to just relax all day with Baby Bunchoy! Thank you Lord for another long weekend!
The Philippines was the first Asian country to send combat troops to the Korean War that began on June 25, 1950. Its soldiers protected South Korea until 1955. The first Filipino warrior set foot on Korea at the port city of Busan (formerly Pusan) on Sept. 19, 1950. Over 7,400 officers and men of the Philippine Army served in Korea.
Philippine Expeditionary Forces to Korea
In an astonishing act of humanity and selflessness, the Philippines sent its soldiers to defend South Korea against a massive communist invasion despite its having to contend with a communist rebellion of its own and the painful challenge of rebuilding an economy crippled by World War II.
FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!
June 6th is the Memorial Day in South Korea. I'm here in the Philippines but I work for a Korean company so we will not go to work tomorrow. Thank God! Baby Bunchoy and I will have a long weekend. To my Korean students, let's recall the glory and sacrifice of all who have set their personal aspirations aside for the preservation of your beloved country.
Thank you Ate Ever!
My one and only sister Ate Ever is planning to have our house renovated. Yehey! Just in time before Baby Bunchoy comes out. I can't wait to design our nursery room. My mind is bursting with a lot of ideas.
We love you Anda Me!
The eldest member of our clan has a pancreatic cancer. She is the sister of my grandmother. We call her Anda Me. She just turned 90 last May 15th. Any moment God can take her away from us. We know that she will be home with Him eventually but we just can't really prepare ourselves for that totally. I pray that she would be with us a little longer but her frail body and soul seem very tired now. It's hard to let go of her. I fear the day that she would bid goodbye and go up to the sky.
fruits and pregnancy...
fruits! fruits! and lots of fruits! Keep 'em coming Daddy for our Baby Bunchoy!
High tide, not heavy rains, leaves streets in Hagonoy, Bulacan flooded.
I was born and raised in Hagonoy, Bulacan Philippines. I'm now working in Manila. My husband and I travel for 3 hours just to get to my hometown and be with my family. It makes me both happy and sad. I'm happy to see my family but sad to see the condition of my hometown. It is sinking gradually because the seawater level is rising. We will be moving to another city soon. Thinking that the second generation of our family won't be able to stay there until our hair is gray is really heartbreaking.
Before I got pregnant. my cousin adopted a baby girl. Her biological mother got pregnat twice by two different men and could not afford to raise this cute baby. We named her Angel. Being the only baby in our family, she truly brightens our lives. She turned 1 year and 1 month yesterday. We actually celebrate every month that she is with us. We just love her so much. She is not from our wombs but she is from our hearts. And now, Baby Bunchoy is coming so she is going to be a big sister soon.
Baby Bunchoy's mom!
I would like to be a good mom to Baby Bunchoy! I know that I would only be one with the help of God. I want our baby to know Him. When he grows up, I want him to live his life for Jesus! I realized that to be a good a mom is not enough. I should be a Christ-centered mom in order to bring up my baby in a way that is pleasing to God. Father God, bless our Baby Bunchoy! We thank You for his life.
Thank you JESUS!
Since I became a Christian, my life truly changed. I used to be a worrier. I would worry about anything. Now, I'm a warrior. A prayer warrior! I strongly believe in the power of prayer. Jesus continuously gives me the strength and courage to face any life circumstances. I also know that God has a wonderful plan for me. It feels so good knowing that my father in heaven still loves me in spite of my imperfections. It makes me wanna shout...hallelujah...thank you JESUS!
A new believer...
My spiritual birth was on June 26, 2011. That was the first time I went to a Christian church. Before I received Jesus as my Lord and Savior, my life was really pointless. I was just working for money. There was an empty space in my heart. Suddenly, I felt so down and didn't want to live anymore. Until God talked to me. He asked me how my race with Him was. I couldn't answer because I never really included Him in my life then.
MAHAL KO! You said on my birthday that you weren't able to give me anything. You're wrong. You gave me the most wonderful gift most women would like to have. You gave me Baby Bunchoy! You gave me your heart and soul. I don't need material things. I need YOU... because I LOVE YOU! Thank you so much for everything. I'm looking forward to spending forever with you.
I miss you Inang...
Time flies so fast! It has been 8 years since our family experienced the darkest year of our lives. Both Inang and Amang passed away in 2006. First, it was Inang. At exactly 3:00 PM on March 31, 2006. I miss her being fierce but so loving at the same time. I miss her laughs. I miss her being caring. It's just very sad to know, that Inang won't be able to meet our Baby Bunchoy. But I know she will watch over us from up above. We love and miss you Inang.
Glad to meet you Baby Bunchoy!
Still about our 1st prenatal check up last February 22. Seeing our Baby Bunchoy for the first time through the ultrasound truly stopped our world. It was so amazing seeing him or her swimming in my womb. I will never forget the first time we heard his or her heartbeat. That was so fast and loud. Our Baby Bunchoy was really alive and kicking.
Let it go Baby Bunchoy!
In the afternoon of February 22 we went to my parents' place to announce the good news. I was really scared but everything turned out okay. They were so happy to know that I was already 9 weeks and 2 days pregnant then. I'm just so thankful for having a wonderful family.
All about Baby Bunchoy!
We had our 1st prenatal check-up on February 22. I was really nervous then. I still had no idea how it would be done. Another thing is that, my parents still didn't know that I was already pregnant. Good thing MAHAL KO was there and is always there for me.
Baby Bunchoy is here!
It was 7:14 PM on February 15 when two purple lines appeared. I was in the bathroom with teary eyes. Daddy knocked and asked, "What?", I answered, "Positive!" There were no words between us just a stare filled with love. Finally, the moment we've been waiting for has arrived. Thank you Lord Jesus!
Sometimes, it's hard for me to be in a relationship with you but it's even harder to live my life without you. Today, as we celebrate our 69th monthsary, I pray that the Lord will forever be by our side. Thank you so much MAHAL KO for loving me with all your heart for 5 years and 9 months. I pray that we would be together for 5 more years and forever. I LOVE YOU MAHAL KO!
Baby Bunchoy's Daddy!
Being in love with my husband Mico, who is 11 years older than I am, truly brings out the best in me. He had been in a very bad relationship before we met. I literally had him at his worst and that woman who broke his heart had him at his best. His past actually doesn't matter to me. What's important is our future with our soon-to-arrive Baby Bunchoy. Never had I thought that I could love a person selflessly and unconditionally. I love you so much MAHAL KO.
