My Lumpia Shanghai

For the past 2 weeks, me and hubby are so busy going there, do this, do that, visit here, visit there. We spent most of our time outside the house. Thought we are that busy, but still we are enjoying our company. This morning, we visit some friends and then went to the park and took some pictures. In the afternoon, we don’t have something special, so we decided to make some lumpia shanghai. I’ve been doing this for 3 years now and lots of Quebecoise love it. We made 5 dozen this afternoon and our friend took all of it. Huh! We just finished packing it for our friend and another friend of us call and want more dozen. Oh! I think, this make me busy again. Cool, isn’t it? hehehehe

My Last Farewell

I feel blessed to have online bolanon friends. We’ve know each other in website. Some are new and some are old members. I’m so thankful to Roy Bayonas for creating the Because of that site, we found many bolanon friends around the world and not only that, every time I will log in in the site, I will never feel lonesome. Thanks to you Admin. I really had a great time in your site.

Now, it’s time for me to cool off. Though I don’t want to leave but I have to. I need to have some times to my husband. He will be here tomorrow night and summer time is fast approaching. I don’t think I will have an access to internet because we will go for a camping and travel somewhere in Canada and United States. I will be very lucky if I can get a signal so that I can visit the site and maybe join the CWLians Conference.

Yesterday, I already give my last farewell to the CWLians. I was very touch with there songs they rendered to me. I can’t help myself crying. All of them sang my favourites songs. Oh Gush! They don’t have any idea how hard for me to leave. Really hard eh!

To all the CWLians, once again, I would like to thanks all of you. You’ve been giving me a great time. You accepted me to be part of the group. I will be missing all of you. I love you all and we will see sometimes in the conference. I will send all of you a personal message from time to time.

To Fr. Raymund, Epin, Alex, Julai, Joy, Ric, Jun, Sis Nitz, Lud, Regil, Barbs, Brex, Neil , Fr. Alner and the rest of the guys that I forgot to mention…Thank you so much! See you soon!

Me and the Motorhome

It’s a childhood dream of my husband to have a motor home. Before he marry me, he was planning to buy one but because it’s too expensive, he was hesitated to buy it because he needs to have enough money to sponsor me to come here with him. He came to the point that he needs to choose between me and the motor home. I was really pleased to know that he chose me and not the motorhome. I felt a little guilty because he sacrifices his dream just to have me. So finally, he didn’t buy.

January 25, 2004, I arrived in Vancouver International Airport. He was very happy because even though he doesn’t have the motor home, at least he has me in his life and we’re together for the rest of our lives. I ask him if he had a regret of not buying the motor home but he keeps on telling me that he really don’t have regret. He said that I am most important than the motor home.

Three months after, he decided to sell the house and buy a motor home. I don’t agree with him selling the house and buy a motor home. I don’t think it’s a good idea. We had big discussion about this matter and finally, he decided not to sell the house. So we waited the best time to buy that motor home.

Seven months after, he bought this motor home without selling the house. He was really happy that I could see in his eyes how happy he was. It’s a 37 feet South Wind motor home. It’s a very luxury vehicle with 1 sofa bed, 1 bedroom with queen size bed and a 17 inches TV, toilet, shower and a bath tub, washing and drying machine, oven, refrigerator, 21 inches TV in the living room, dining table, and a dome for the satellite. Kitchen utensils are included also. It’s a very good buy and it’s worth to wait that long.

Summer 2005, we travel a lot and we really enjoy it. The first trip we had was when we went to Ottawa, Ontario for the Tulips Festival. And then, we had been for a camping for different places in Quebec Province and New Brunswick.

Year 2006, we didn’t use it because my husband is working away from home. But this year, we already plan for our trip somewhere in Canada and United States. We are very excited now because summer is fast approaching.

So that’s the story of me and the motor home.


Background Music

I woke up late this morning. I was not able to sleep last night because I kept on thinking what I can add on my site. Until I’m dreaming of something that helps me a lot. The first thing I did when I woke up, I open my laptop did what is in my dream hehehehe I cannot imagine I can do it. I downloaded the midi and try it in my other site and it works. Oh boy! You didn’t know how happy I am. Then I try it here and again it works hahahaha I feel great. It feels so nice if you were able to do the thing that you really want. Well, I’m trying to improve my site and test my capability. I’m still looking forward for more updates of my site.

New Face

I don't know how to tell you how happy I am tonight. I just made this blog last night and I’m using the classic template. I want to change the template. I’m browsing in the net a nice template and I saw this one. I try to change last night but I was not able. This afternoon, I chat with my friend Nita and I ask her help. Thanks to her and I made it. It took me 3 hrs to change and finally I made it. I’m so happy. Thanks sis Nitz… I owe you a lot.

Friends, sorry I don’t have much posting. I’m just starting. Feel free to visit sometimes for more updates. You can leave a message or comments in my Message Board.

Thanks and hope you will enjoy!

10 days more to go!!!!!!!!!!! I’m looking forward the day that my husband will arrive. He will be here very soon. 10 days more to go and we will be together. Two months of being away is so hard for us. We want to be with ourselves every time. But we need to sacrifice sometimes for the goods of us. On the first two weeks of being alone after Christmas, it’s like that there’s a big storm came in my life. I been crying for 2 weeks that I feel to go and join him in Seattle. I don’t feel to work in the computer, all I did was sit down in the sofa and watch TV. My days were too boring until I found this CWL. It’s a circle of bolanons around the world. I spent most of my time with them in the net. As I said in my previous post that we had a great time together, playing games and singing Pilipino songs or foreign songs. With them, I don’t feel bored anymore.

Just now, I have a mix feeling. I feel so excited that my husband will arrive soon. At the same time, I feel sad also because I don’t have enough time to be with the CWLians. But it doesn’t matter as long as I’m with my husband. I can still find time for them but not the same as before. For the CWLians, don’t worry, as I said, you’re always in my mind and heart ( Char!!! But that’s true)

Just wait and see what will happen after 10 days from now hehhehhe.
