Archive for December 28th, 2019


It’s been a quiet year for me the whole of 2019.  Come to think of it, I haven’t attended any party with friends except for having dinners and lunches with the family.  Mom is getting on in years so I could not just leave the house for long when she is with us.

Except for that one week vacation in our hometown last July visiting my sick brother and bonding with some relatives, I haven’t gone any place else. It was an eye-opener too  for the family. Nissa was hospitalized twice when she had her thyroidectomy last September and her radiation therapy earlier this month. Thank God, she is feeling okay now although she has to take medications for life. Her oncologist removed her thyroid both left and right.  Thank you too for all your prayers and concern for my brother Alden and for Nissa.

I’ve been calling up friends via Messenger the past few days, getting in touch with those I haven’t seen for quite a while.  It is so nice to be updated with everyone. By the way, you can download the Messenger app on your phone or tab even without signing in to Facebook. How I wish I could talk to some of you too. It is now easier to communicate through this than through Viber. You can easily see who among your friends are online.

Some would probably think what a dull life I am leading. I assure you, I find pleasure in my small garden, so much joy in reading and discovering new books and authors. I am happy playing with Oreo. I find satisfaction in experimenting in the kitchen. Simple life for a simple me.

While I was playing with Nate last Tuesday, he showed me one of his front teeth which is now quite loose.  He will eventually lose it one of these days. Then we talked of the tooth fairy. I told him it is just a myth. He asked me what he would do with it once it comes off. I told him to just give it to his mom.  He doesn’t know where the first tooth  went but he was glad it was replaced by a permanent one.

I am now in my 149th read in Goodreads. I am presently reading a box set of four books. They are all light reads. These are relaxed days before the frenzy of meeting a new year –  new opportunities,  new dreams to uphold. I no longer keep a new year’s resolution since I could not follow it through but I always pray for good health for friends and all members of the family.

I hope 2020 would be a good year for all of us.

We had our twice-a-month marketing today. Timely preparation for the coming media noche. Costs of everything has gone up again. While almost every Filipino is struggling with high costs of commodities including basic goods, our rich politicians continue to amass wealth through corruption. Sorry, this is not what I want to blog about.

There is something wonderful about the giving qualities of my favorite vendors/sellers at the wet market. Every Christmas, they would give different gifts. Some gave me sturdy shopping bags, one gave me a recyclable grocery bag with zipper so you can fold into a wallet-sized one when you go out. I also received a hand towel from one of them. They may not be much for some people but it’s the thought that counts, right?

Cost of fruits have gone up again. I just bought two kilos of black seedless grapes and two pieces of honey dew. Come December 31, expect more mark-up on those different round fruits in the market. Filipinos have this tradition of serving twelve kinds of fruits during the new year. It is the only time in the year where you’ll find those fruits which are not necessarily sold during ordinary days.

I just hope 2020 will be a good year for all of us. HAPPY NEW YEAR in advance 🎉🎊💕🌷🍇🍎🍒
