My Brother Is Gone

He must have waited for us to come home. Nissa and I rode on a deluxe Victory Liner bus last Friday and we were there around 9pm.

I talked to him yesterday morning before we left. He listened. He left us around 3 pm as we were traversing NLEX.



I still can’t believe it. DEMOCRACY in our country is lost.

So many voters in several areas were not able to vote because of so many Voters Counting Machines which were so defective. Yet, Comelec didn’t even have the guts to replace or repair them.

You won’t believe this too. In two hours, unofficial counts had marcos leading by the millions, obviously, the results were pre-programmed. SD cards could be changed, right? Some say it was even faster than the US. With all the commissioners appointed by duterte from Davao and with chinese businessman Dennis Uy providing all the election paraphernalia ( a close ally of duterte), RIGGING IS A DONE DEAL. Marcos VP is the daughter of duterte.

I am not bitter but sad. People had a glimpse of a better opportunity for change but they chose to stay in the dark.

LORD, I need a hug🙏🙏🙏🙏

It’s Election Day

A very important event that most democratic-loving Filipinos waited with bated breath. The previous six years made being one not proud of his/her birthplace – extra-judicial killings, grave corruptìon, economy sinking fast, a strongman for a leader, lies, broken promises, curses and swearing and what have you. And most of all allegiance to china.

Now we’ve found the most-qualified candidate for the presidency in the person of VP LENI ROBREDO.

The polling precincts opened at 6 am. I was there before 6 am and I was number 4 in line at our own precinct. It is an advantage for us subdivision owners that Election is held at our multi-purpose hall exclusive to us. I was done at 6:30 am. It was literally peaceful so far.

Let VP LENI, SEN. KIKO and their slate win.

Let freedom-loving Filipinos win. Let us WIN THIS TIME LORD🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭💕💕💕🙏🙏🙏

It’s Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all my lovely friends here who are mothers as well. Celebrate because it us our day. It’s that one day in a year where we are given tributes as mothers. This lovely quote still lingers and I remember the old days while my two kids were growing. Those were the days we had to rely on two househelps because I was still working. They were still in high school when I availed of an early retirement because we could no longer find minders for them.

I used this photo before in my other blog posts about motherhood. Lovely Amazon lily blooms I plucked from the gaŕden.

She shed a tear, tears of hope for the motherland. She accepted the challenge to run a few months ago and the Filipinos who desired for change in the government encouraged her. For us, there is only one Leni Robredo, she is an economist and a lawyer. As vice-president, she did so many projects, going to remote areas affected by calamities to help despite a very limited budget from the government. She was visited by several foreign dignitaries instead of duterte.

Last night was the end of the campaign and the miting de avance was held in Ayala Avenue (business district of Makati City) . There was a crowd estimate of about a million attendees all over. People love her. I love her too. This feat is the first in the Philippines and probably in the whole world where people made use of their own resources instead of the politician. They brought food for every one in every scheduled rally, did house-to-house campaigns in remote areas.

I am proud of her and I am praying she’d be elected as the mother of the Philippines. As long as the Commission on Election does not show dirty tricks, it will be a win for VP Leni and Sen. Kiko.

It’s Been A While

Gosh, I could not believe I haven ‘t blogged for a week. Though sometimes, I have lots of things to share, I am more focused on social media.

It is the last leg of the campaign period then we’ll have our election on Monday. I keep praying it would be honest and clean but knowing how the Comelec works, I have my reservations. Back in 2019, tbere was a seven-hour glitch which they haven’t explained until now. All the candidates of Duterte in the Senate won, even those who were not that much qualified compared to the opposition. They are now mere ‘decorations’ on the Senate floor. People say that china was involved.

I need not elaborate on how the campaign trail is doing. We call ourselves kakampink. Pink is the color of hope, everytime there are scheduled pink rallies in different provinces, people come by the thousands. There is this Pulse Asia who conducts surveys and release them now and then but it is so biased in favor of marcos dayunior. They usually have 2,400 respondents but not all sectors are represented. They are trying mind-conditioning on people gullible enough to believe that Marcos, Jr. is leading. He is not, he has money to pay for the false survey. Some people actually call it false asia. There is a similar survey by Google Trends and Leni/Kiko tandem is very much far ahead.

#Leni/Kiko for the win!

Max Is Home

They fetched him the other day. How I’ve missed our fur baby. As soon as he saw me, he positioned himself to a belly rub. It has been our ritual together since he was more than a month old. I noticed he was dragging his foot when he walked. Maybe it was because of the effect of the IV where he was injected. All his medications before were through the line. He was a little thinner after a 7-day stay at the pet hospital.

They are complete now – 2 puppies, 4 doggies and Oreo and Cookie. Happy home again.

Oreo And Cookie

I had the opportunity to play with Oreo and Cookie yesterday afternoon. They stayed in my room for a while. As always, Oreo was so noisy barking at the dogs outside. Cookie was so “malambing” and she liked being cuddled. Took some photos of course. Look at the two of them.

Cookie is now so big at one year and eight months. We had three aircon installers yesterday so they had to stay in my room. Josef and Jovy had their old aircon replaced by 1HP split type inverter aircon which was a gift from Jovy’s dad. He also sent money for Max’s hospitalization. It’s the seventh day now that he is sick and he is still at the pet hospital. He does not eat well yet so he has to be supervised by the vet.

I am so worried about my brother. He barely eats and doesn’t have a restful sleep. I again asked Nissa if we could visit him one weekend. We could not bring mom though because for sure if she is there, nobody could take care of her. My sis-in-law is focused on Alden. My mom doesn’t understand our situation. Although we want her to see Alden too, it would be very hard for all of us if she would be left behind there. I do hope one weekend we could visit my brother.

She Is Back

Sadie is home.

She’s one of the two puppies we have left after our three doggies have given birth to nine. Six were adopted, the seventh is supposed to be adopted too but she died a week ago after bringing her to the vet. Sadie and Max would barely eat four days ago. They were confined at one of the dog hospitals in Pasig three days ago. Max still would not eat but he is on IV. Sadie is back to her boisterous self playing with our four doggies. Max is left at the hospital.

Oreo and Cookie, our poodle and shih tzu are not allowed to go out in the meantime.

It Was Mom’s Birthday

Yesterday, we celebrated Mom’s 93rd birthday, it was just the two of us for lunch so I just ordered kare-kare, barbeque, afritada and Beef Caldereta. Nissa sent two family-sized pizza in different flavors while Josef bought Red Ribbon cake. We had late dinner so mom was not able to blow the candle on her cake. She said she was sleepy at around 8:30 pm. She usually has dinner at 6 pm.

She loved the food and we have much left in the ref, probably good for two more days and the birthday cake remains untouched. I’ll give her a slice later.

Our two puppies are confined at the dog clinic since last night. Another one died three days ago after Jovy and Josef brought her to the vet. The two confined puppies are the only ones left out of the nine because the six others were given earlier to Jovy’s friends. I really don’t know what happened, all of a sudden, they won’t eat. We only feed them Pedigree meat and cooked rice. It is so expensive to bring pets to the vet. They have already spent around 10k the past few days. I wonder how much more they have to pay for the confinement of the two. Josef disinfects our garden every night for three days now. I hope, these two will get well soon.

Prayers, Always Prayers

You’ll catch me whining again. I am just sad about the result of my brother Alden’s biopsy. He messaged me last night and it is Adenocarcinoma, colorectal cancer.

I asked Nissa and Obet if we could go home one weekend and visit him.

Please, please, could you include him again in your prayers. Thank you so much.
