We already got the report cards of the kids...and once again they did well. Josh was in the honor roll for english and chinese...Isha had impressive grades too but didn't make it to the honor roll this grading...Study harder Ish, i know you can make it =)
We watched Harry Potter last Saturday...once again Josh was up with his usual uncollected remarks..."Hey Mom, I can tell that this girl (one who collects tickets at the entrance) wears fake skin." Yes, he said it in front of the girl...good thing she just laughed it off. Fake skin to him is stockings...nope he isn't familiar with stockings (black) coz nobody uses it at home...
Went to Divisoria today to buy some stuffs for Christmas...the kids gave me a long list of names...Geez, there were a lot of people this early huh (or am i already late in buying christmas gifts?) This is usually the place i go to when i buy stuffs for birthday giveaways, christmas gifts for kids, etc. They have a wide variety of selections. This time i bought cute hardbound magnetic notebooks, at a very reasonable price...

you really like - and really love.
He's the closest friend
you've ever had.
His smile can make you smile,
and just his being there
can cheer you up,
no matter what goes wrong.
A husband is that special man
who shares your dreams
and helps them to come true.
He gives the special meaning
to that beautiful word - together.
The birthday boy who turned not 04 but the big 4-0...it was celebrated at The Century Seafood Restaurant...music was provided by The Bernie Pasamba String Ensemble, with Jenny and Austin rendering 4 of Nelson's favorite songs...All I Ask of You, Amigos Para Siempre, Nella Fantasia and Con Te Partiro...this really made his day...

Isha decided to have her hair permed too, so I brought her to Salon de Manila last Saturday to have her hair done. Everyone liked it, she was getting stares here, there, and everywhere...my nanny even overheard a group of girls saying that she was a beautiful girl...but not today...she came home crying because of those envious girls in her class, she was told straight to her face that she looked like a witch, can you imagine that? And my poor lil girl just couldn't handle it, thus she came home crying. What touched me was the concern of her bro Josh...yeah they're like cats and dogs at home...always fighting, always picking at each other, when they're home we seldom have peace and quiet. But when Josh saw her crying, he immediately came to her and asked her what was wrong, and that touched me to the core. It was a very touching scene...coz sometimes it gets to a point of frustration, it seems like they don't love each other coz they always fight...but hey, Josh will always come to the defense of his sister, and that is simply G-R-E-A-T!

"Waaaaahhhhh! you're not my Mom...Atch look, twister fries", said Josh. He didn't know that I had my hair permed earlier today. No, he doesn't go for curly hair, so when I decided to have it permed, Nelson asked me if Josh knew. Of course I wouldn't be telling, coz he'll get in my way...haha! Now he keeps on pulling my hair down, he really hates curls...he wants my hair long and straight, just like in the shampoo commercial...and he has this hobby of always touching my hair when I drive...but now it's gone, instead he's got "twister fries."

We really didn't have any plans of going to Vigan, but since it was just a 45-minute drive from Candon, Ilocos Sur where we had a wedding coverage, we decided at the last minute to go and check out the place. It is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l! No wonder it is included in the UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE LIST. We're definitely going back there, and I hope it's soon, we only had 1 hour to explore VIGAN...to bad =(

I finally got the stuffs I asked you to buy for me thru Mina. I really appreciate your effort in finding those things. I know you are a very busy gurl, even to the point of not updating your journal because of so much work, but you still found time giving in to my requests. With that I can never thank you enough.
