it's our anniversary

five years of marriage and two beautiful children. we've truly come a long way since our wedding day. a lot have changed but what remained the same is our love and respect for each other. it's no easy task nowadays especially since we're working so hard to be good parents that being good partners require an extra effort. thank you for deciding to make this marriage work.

paris can least that gives you more time to save. hehehehe :-P

party planning mode

i'm so excited! we're having aerin's baptism and aidan's 2nd birthday party in manila on april next year. most likely we'll have a joint celebration. we just need to decide on a date (before or after hap and neil's wedding) and then i can start planning the party!

extreme weather

it's 41 degrees today in sydney. thank god for airconditioning. aerin and i just stayed in the house the entire day. forecast tomorrow is 21 degrees. how is it possible than in a span of 24 hours, the temperature plummets 20 degrees??? i hope we don't get sick with this constant change in weather.

this would sound strange but we don't have a single electric fan at home (unheard of back in manila where EVERY room would have one). i wouldn't mind getting this dyson air multiplier though, that is if it doesn't cost $400.

pretty cool huh?

100 months

yup, we're celebrating our 100 monthsary today! nothing special planned really (he even had to remind me it's our monthsary today). at least i didn't have to cook dinner and got thai take-away instead. given how busy our lives are at the moment, not having to cook dinner means a lot.

we also had the worst dust storm in sydney celebrate with us today. imagine waking up to an orangey-red sky. was like there was an alien invasion or something. the sky only turned blue after lunch. check out the photos from smh: dust turns sydney sky red.

thirty three years and counting

happy anniversary papa & mama! thank you for being such good role models to me and eric and my sisters and brother. it's true what they say that it's easy to get married but hard to make the marriage work. eric and i are at the point now where we are trying to balance being partners and parents at the same time and it's no easy feat for sure! you've truly showed us that it is possible to make marriage work as long as we work hard for it...together. we love you very much!
