Enough To Fats!!











Today I  decided to have a diet plan. I am tired of wearing big sized skirts, pants and shirts. Hughhh! I couldn’t wear my 29 sized pants nowadays. My clothes were uncomfortable with me  if I only know. Hu hu hu. I plan to have these veggies and fruit juices hoping it would help , too. Enough to slimming pills, fat burners or coffee slim. All I earned were  tons of weight. Oh, it hurts me more. Enough! Enough!



Suggestions please ……thank you.

A Game: Guess?

Mr. Koko made his day productive. He made a tour around the high school area with his camera of course.  He took a lot of shots here and there till he took this.
                           Guess what?

You may tour around for the answer. How about the price? Who ever could  guess correctly may have a price but please  refer to the post , A kiss Per Yard” .

Planting Rice Is Never Fun!




Have you ever tried planting rice? Or even just going into the muddy field? How about the hungry leech ready to attack you? I know you would cross your fingers  and swear not to go into the mud. But look at this man….

"Planting rice is never fun.
Bent from morning till the set of sun.
Can not stand and can not sit.
Can not rest for a little bit.


       
     

finished at last!

        
I must say , “thank you” to the farmers for without them I don’t have this plate of rice set before me .  Every single seed of rice I eat was because of the hard work of the farmers. My plate of rice lies to their callused hands. How patient they are! They never surrendered even in times of catastrophe. Never ending  tolerance tending in the field.  Even how  sunny ,windy or rainy day it was  and even how much would mother nature bitterly  play on them, they were there  firmly standing at their own feet. I salute them. They must be the heroes for they save millions of mouths.

Big Cleaning Day!




Wake up! Wake up! It’s Saturday!  I really liked to sleep some more since I couldn’t enjoy this on week days but my conscience is bothering me . I couldn’t sleep happily when there’s my mind whispering, “ clean! Clean!” It was been two weeks that these cob webs in the corner had been enjoying the ambiance of our house.  


Since my mother went back home to the Philippines, Koko(my hubby’s nickname) and I need to do the cleaning. I hate cleaning in general. I mean I love cleaning when I am in good mood.

I got up and found Koko in his cute garden harvesting long beans. I had to do my share of work in the house. I decided to clean the bathroom first.   I got Mr. Duck, splashed  to all the sides then scrubbed  the tiles and finally, splashed water all over the place. Hmmm! It’s clean .Do you know why  I preferred to clean it? It was because the bathroom is one of my favorite part of the house and I like cleaning with water. I left the kitchen for my husband! Pssssst! Mr.Koko didn’t know about my game. Ha ha.  I was free of the kitchen. Quick as I could , I took the pile of clothes  and headed to the laundry area. I didn’t want Koko to do the washing because…….. the washing machine was there ready to help me. So wise!!


Mr. Koko came and proudly presented his product and kept the beans in the ref. He noticed the shining  bathroom and said,  “Wow! The bathroom looks clean today huh?.” Smilingly I said, “Thank you.” I took advantage of him, “Daddy, I cleaned the bathroom already and I like to finish these laundry before it rains.”I was supposed to blah blah more but  my husband said, “Playing trick again,  Ok , I will take care  of the kitchen.” He he my sweet dear couldn’t  complain.  Ok, solved.


From my place I could see my hubby sweeping (up to the ceiling down to the floor, left to the window, right to the door). He’s done! But he did it like what Tom does in “Tom and Jerry”.
Don’t get me wrong. I can clean the house but my hubby is just helpful. See you soon  ………….



One Kiss Per Yard


Here is an anecdote I've  just found that's rather funny and a lesson to guys who sometimes take their time making fun out of  girls for  being girls.
______________________
Walking up to a department store's fabric counter, a pretty girl asked, "I want to buy this material for a new dress. How much does it cost?"

"Only one kiss per yard, " replied the smirking male clerk.

"That's fine," replied the girl. "I'll take ten yards."

With expectation and anticipation written all over his face, the clerk hurriedly measured out and wrapped the cloth, then held it out teasingly.

The girl snapped up the package and pointed to a little old man standing beside her. "Grandpa will pay the bill," she smiled.

I’ve Got Guavas!

I got bored facing my laptop. I’ve got droopy eyes. I couldn’t set my mind into writing and my cough had been bothering me for more than two weeks. Hough! I’d gotta stretch my arms before my eyes closed.
As I was standing outside my classroom yawning and stretching , I noticed a woman walking coming in the school. She was in a yellow shirt and maybe that’s the reason why I got attracted. My eyes got big. There she was, I could see her clearly. oooppss!! It’s was Pi Daeng! She was handing a bag to the student. I simply waved my hand hoping she would recognize me but there she was walking towards the gate. I got back to my laptop and began to scroll pictures for my blog. Suddenly, I heard a knock at my door and the student was handing a bag and said, “ KUN PHA AO MA HAI” . (Aunt gave it.) Wow!  A bag of guavas. I knew right away. It was Pi Daeng who gave me.  I gave her a call and thanked. Pi Daeng was very nice to my family. She used to visit me to learn English . Thank you, Pi Daeng!!


Anybody out there who likes to eat guava?

Frances Has Got A Polka Dot Dress!

The good thing with Frances is that she appreciates simple things whatever mommy,daddy or granny has given her.Her sweet little voice,"Thank you, mommy","Thank you ,Daddy"  mean a lot to us.We missed that much.

A week after she had her Teddy skirt was her Polka Dot dress. She was so thankful to have her polka dot dress. I knew she loved to  have a memory of those with her note ,"Mommy, picture...picture".After her pictorial  she went out with  mom's high heeled shoes and knocked at the doors to announce ,"Look what mommy made for me. "  Ha ha! The Thai neighbors  would always say " Suwai jang Leuy"(It's so beautiful) then  gave her sweets.Frances ended up wearing her dress the whole day.Wow, Frances has got many treasures!
Frances modeling her polka dot dress.
It's show time!!
Any comment?

Joke: Sacrifice?

Who is the wisest of them all?

Eleven people were hanging on a rope under a helicopter, ten men and one woman. The rope was not strong enough to carry them all, so they decided that one has to drop off, otherwise they are all going to fall. They were not able to choose that person, but then the woman made a very touching speech. She said that she would voluntarily let go of the rope, because as woman she was used to giving up everything for her husband and kids, and for men in general, without ever getting anything in return. As soon as she finished her speech, all the men started clapping their hands.

Frances Has Got A New Skirt


“Wow ! Suwai  Jang Luey!”, said Frances in Thai ( Wow. It’s so beautiful.)upon looking at her hand sewn skirt by mommy. It was her  inexplicable day! Frances has got a new Teddy skirt. Frances was so happy to pair it with her yellow shirt. She went out to show off to the neighborhood. Actually, Frances loves everything that has teddy bear  and teddy designs so its no wonder she liked the skirt made from my curtain’s remaining piece.

Reminiscing The Past





This is the Mary Immaculate Church in Chantaburi.I missed this place.



I still remember Luvy and I used to attend the morning mass  on Sundays but, since I changed my place of work I seldom attend the misa . Whenever I visited my friend’s place, we made appoint to drop by the church for a minute. It’s our pastime to sit infront of the school facing the church and of course  with the snacks and my friend’s  long stories and jokes. We talked about anything and some silly things  that just popped in  our minds till we forgot about the time.We never got bored listening to each other.  I missed my friend! I missed  you sooo much.

  

Joke:My Darling, My Dear…



I hope your hubby is not calling you with your sweet names because of the same situation down here….
A man was invited for dinner at a friend's house. Every time the host needed something, he preceded his request to his wife by calling her "My Love", "Darling", "Sweetheart", etc., etc. His friend looked at him and said, "That's really nice after all of these years you've been married to keep saying those little pet names." The host said, "Well, honestly, I've forgotten her name."

How Can You Stop Hiccup?

A woman went to her doctor's office. She was seen by one of the new doctors, but after about 4 minutes in the examination room, she burst out screaming and ran down the hall. An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she explained. He had her sit down and relax in another room. The older doctor marched back to the first and demanded, "What's the matter with you? Mrs. Terry is 63 years old, she has four grown children and seven grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?" The new doctor smiled smugly as he continued to write on his clipboard. "Cured her hiccups though, didn't it?"





This reminded me of our silly acts when were still young. Whenever  one member of the family has hiccup, we tried to help but how?
 One time I had hiccup and I felt terrible . I went near my brother and complained because it irritated  me. My brother composed himself and he said with his finger warning at me  “ uhhhh, You’ve stolen the chicken eggs! I will tell you to daddy.”  As this was my first time so I didn’t know it was a technique so I got scared. I cried  and started  to brawl with my bother. Waaaaaaah! Waaaaaaah! ,I didn’t steal any eggs .All of a sudden,  my brother was laughing at me. I faced my dad and tried to defend myself  but he was laughing, too. Then I realized my hiccup was gone. Lol. I strangled my brother.

Teach and Learn Part5

My Naughty Students Have Improved
Today, I wasn’t expecting a good change from my beloved 5J’s. After the  heart to heart talk  last meeting with them , I wasn’t expecting much. I was used to their  broken promises.  I quietly waited for the class in my room as usual. They came in and settled themselves. As usual the leader of the class  announced to everybody to greet the teacher. So, all the students stood up and greeted me "Good afternoon". I started  the days’ lesson and hoped they will listen. To my surprise all of the  students  were all listening to me. What a mystery! Did heaven strike on them? Deep inside I was smiling and hoped this will last for centuries. I took  the chance  who knows this might not last for a minute, an hour  or for days.  I went on with the lesson. They were all participating in the discussion. There were still noise in the classroom but it was lesser than before and I could still manage. I praised the whole class  when they answered me correctly. I saw smiling faces .
 If Tommy has improved, my naughty students did, too.

How about next meeting? Well let’s see…. Coming up next

Text: All Apologies



Marie sent me messages after deliberating she did me wrong……….remember the adopted child issue???

Text: Sori ate, wagmu sana masabi  kina mama mo , nahihiya ako. Sana tayo tayo lang. Hope u understand my situation.sak n lang galing un suggestion na un.di ko sinabi sa immigration .basta dinamag da lang nu wada d am amok ay mangsuport en sak en f ever.
( I am sorry sis, I hope u won’t tell this thing to ur mom. I am ashamed. I hope it will just be between u and me. I hope u understand my situation. It was only my suggestion. I didn’t tell the immigration officer. The officer just asked me if I happen to know anybody who can help me . )

Text: Pls. text back. I am really sorry.,etc.

I decided not to send her any message. After the hurting, she ‘s sorry? I  forgave her but  it doesn’t mean I will give her another chance to do it again. Enough! Learn from it.

Fly Away Pigeons


I wish I have two wings  flying up above the sky

And shall hope for our dreams to be fulfilled ………

Fly  high!!!!!!!!!!!..Pigeons Fly to where your dreams are…….






Bangkok or Chantaburi

My husband proposed for a date!! But where??
We agreed to go to celebrate Mother’s Day  in Bangkok. Early morning  at 4.00  a.m. we prepared for our journey. We planned to take the earliest trip. We patiently waited for the bus  but it seemed the date to Bangkok was not meant for us. After an hour waiting for the ride we decided to cross the street to Chantaburi.  A couple of minutes the bus we’ve been waiting for passed us by.  What a joke! Our eyes met and we burst into laughters and asked each other,” shall we cross again? “Then we’ll never end up crossing the road.
Finally we took the bus to Chantaburi . From our place of work to Chantaburi was only a two hour ride. 
Welcome to Chantaburi !











The way to Nampu Market……
The King Taksin’s Park Chantaburi
 
Koko with the birds………
Feeding the birds……..
A drive test before touring around  ahem……..



Thanks for the date daddy! Daddy where will be our next travel on Father’s Day?........

Beware of Satan at the Malls

Have you ever tried the dictates of Satan in the mall to buy beyond your budget? I did last time! Read on.......

Devil Shopping

The poor country pastor was livid when he confronted his wife with the receipt for a $250 dress she had bought. "How could you do this!" he exclaimed.


"I don't know," she wailed, "I was standing in the store looking at the dress. Then I found myself trying it on. It was like the Devil was whispering to me, 'Gee, you look great in that dress. You should buy it.'"


"Well," the pastor persisted, "You know how to deal with him! Just tell him, "Get behind me, Satan!"


"I did," replied his wife, "but then he said "It looks great from back here, too!"

Kinds of Men



All the while, I thought there are only two kinds of men.  Those who know how to love and who don’t. Until this time I saw other kinds of men.  Now, which is yours?
Men Are Like...
Men are like..... Placemats.
They only show up when there's food on the table.

Men are like..... Mascara.
They usually run at the first sign of emotion.

Men are like..... Bike helmets.
Handy in an emergency, but otherwise they just look silly.

Men are like..... Government bonds.
They take so long to mature.

Men are like..... Lava lamps.
Fun to look at, but not all that bright.

Men are like..... Bank accounts.
Without a lot of money, they don't generate much interest. 

Another Woman Power for Philippines' Supreme Court

Women are now getting equal treatment in the government work force, for lawyering,  at least. This might be a good sign of democracy where gender is not an obstacle to pursue one's dream. President Benigno Aquino III has just appointed lady lawyer  Maria Lourdes Aranal Sereno as associate justice of the Supreme Court. 


Let  us hope that corruption in our justice system will be lessened.


See the story at http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/inquirerheadlines/nation/view/20100814-286683/Palace-appoints-lady-law-professor-to-Supreme-Court



With or Without You?

 There must be something with the use of punctuation marks. In written English, we understand each other by the correct usage of punctuation marks. Mechanics of writing, as they say, put meanings to the way we write our messages. Here's a good example:

An English professor wrote the words, "A woman without her man is nothing" on the blackboard and directed the students to punctuate it correctly.


The men wrote: "A woman, without her man, is nothing."


The women wrote: "A woman: without her, man is nothing."

TEXT!!!!! ADOPTED CHILD?

Yesterday I  got a  rather disturbing text.
Beep..beep!!!!
Text: HALO MANANG IARAMIDANAK MAN T AFIDAVIT OF  SUPPORT KET ENKA PATATAK IDIAY PHIL. EMBASSY.PLS. HOLDAK MANEN.
(halo sis, make me an affidavit of support then go to the Philippine embassy ,please. I was held in the immigration again.)
As I was reading  her text I was thinking on how to help her.   I asked my hubby to write my response  to the sender.
My Hubby replied: Halo, How can I make you an affidavit of support?  Our family names are not the same and my   place is  miles away from the embassy, 4-5 hours by bus. All the papers being sent to the embassy cost a lot. ….
Then I got the 2nd text.
Beep..beep!!!!
Text:  MABALIN SA MANONG TA INBAGAK NGA AMPON ISUNA.
(Bro, I think it could be because I told the immigration that she was an adopted child)
Heeeey!!!heey hey,  how could she think that way!!!!!!!!! I am not ! It’s because of her desire to go abroad she asked me to pretend an adopted child and make an affidavit of support.
My hubby replied: No that’s not possible. They know  Rissa in the embassy .She had been processing documents before  so the embassy knows Rissa well. The more the immigration officer will ask for more documents such as adoption paper, birth certificates  of u both, parents documents ,NSO and  a lot more documents .
The 3rd text …..
Text:  Mabalin  sa ikarga na nga pinsan dak  sakto bayadan.
( Maybe she could write that we’re cousins.  I will pay  later.)
My hubby replied: No ,I don’t like my wife to be in trouble.

That was the last message . OMG! How could she think that way.
The story was this. Marie  wanted to go to Russia. Maybe she could go because her friend working in that country invited her but her problem is , she must wait for a long time processing her visa in the Philippines . She wanted quick visa  processing .
Marie knew it well that she couldn’t have visa from  our beloved Philippines. She planned to fly to Thailand to process her visa , unluckily she was held at the immigration . She couldn’t do anything. She decided to contact me . I was willing to accommodate her in  Thailand to process her visa .  Before hand,  I instructed her to get all the documents needed  for visa processing before flying to Thailand . I gave her some tips how to compose herself and how to do the interview when she flies to Thailand. There were no problems with her papers for visa because as she said her employer-to-be knows authorities who could be of great help when she should arrive in Thailand.  
The best was to buy a package tour. Her most awaited day came. She was interviewed by the immigration officer. There she was …UNLUCKY. She didn’t pass the interview so she sent me those messages desperately asking for help. 

A Tribute To Mothers

Mother’s day is a very special day dedicated for  all mothers.  This is the day the children show their great love to their mom.
Every year the school celebrates this special day. One week ahead the teachers  had been preparing the students to make cards  with meaningful messages  or dedications.  Many  students of different levels   prepared songs, speech and dance  presentation to entertain their beloved mothers. On this day the students bring along their mother with them but some students come with their aunt or grandma in place of their mothers who couldn’t come.
Mothers’ representative  delivering a speech …..
Interpretative dance
Group singing ……..Its so touching…mothers  in tears….
The students express their gratitude and promises for their mom.


It’s heart consoling……..Happy Mother’s Day!!!!!!!




Jokes: Top Ten Reasons Why Dogs Are Better Pets Than Cats

1.             1.  Dogs will tilt their heads and try to understand every word you say. Cats will ignore you and take a nap.

2. Cats look silly on a leash.

3. When you come home from work, your dog will be happy and lick your face. Cats will still be mad at you for leaving in the first place.

4. Dogs will give you unconditional love until the day they die. Cats will make you pay for every mistake you've ever made since the day you were born.

5. A dog knows when you're sad. And he'll try to comfort you. Cats don't care how you feel, as long as you remember where the can opener is.

6. Dogs will bring you your slippers. Cats will drop a dead mouse in your slippers.

7. When you take them for a ride, dogs will sit on the seat next to you. Cats have to have their own private basket, or they won't go at all.

8. Dogs will come when you call them. And they'll be happy. Cats will have someone take a message and get back to you.

9. Dogs will play fetch with you all day long. The only thing cats will play with all day long are small rodents or bugs, preferably ones that look like they're in pain.

10. Dogs will wake you up if the house is on fire. Cats will quietly sneak out the back door.

Teach and Learn Part 4

My Naughty Students  Made Promises
Today I planned  to call on the names of my  students one after the other  so I would know who  owns  the notebook with the  word SE_ that’s boldly printed on the cover page . My students came into my room. They were very quiet this time because their adviser  sent them to my room. Oh, my beloved students were behaving good this time. I was a bit happy but didn’t let the students notice it. We finished the day’s discussion . I wrote the sentences on the board and instructed the students to rearrange  them according to the story. The students were quietly working so I was thinking this wasn’t be a tough day.  Before the bell rang,  I collected the notebooks . I started with number one ,  two, three and so on until I caught the culprit (who owns the notebook with the  word SE_) I set aside his notebook. Others followed to hand their notes and at the end I gathered 6 notebooks. They did not write anything. I dismissed the students leaving the 6 students behind. I asked them why they didn’t work while infact  the activity was easy. I started   to ask  Jessie ,pointing at the word, SE_”Do you know this word? Will you read it for me?” Instead of him answering me his friend Joshua read aloud and laughed. All of them began laughing.  I told Jessie to erase that word. Now I faced  the other student who doesn’t belong to the J’s group.  I asked her,  Poi (not the real name) why didn’t you work?  Do you do this in your other subjects?” YESSS!, the other five chorused. I went on.  “Who is your mother?” She answered me in Thai, ”TAENG TE GUET MA CHAN MAI KUEY HEN MAE LUEY”( Since I was born, I didn’t see my mother.) So I said, “Why do you speak like that. If your mother will know about it, will she be happy? BLAH, BLAH, BLAH . Now I faced the 5 J’s. “Last time , you promised to do good. But why ? Why didn’t you work? See your notebooks . There’s nothing in it except your drawings. How many times you made promises with me? (Jinky started counting her fingers to play jokes …)Do you like to me to talk with your parents?  Tell me honestly. Do you respect your parents ? If you don’t ,well this is the school whether you like it or not you have to. This your last chance I will  report this to the principal and you  will be reprimanded.” Blah blah blah my heart was aching. I didn’t know what to do with these students. I was fed up. But suddenly the  students chorused, “KOTHOT KAP ,TEACHER. CHAN JA MAI HAI TEACHER GROT EAK LAEW KAP, CHAN JA TANGJAI LEYAN KAP”. ( I am sorry teacher. I won’t make the teacher angry again. I will intend to learn.)They were all staring at me . Their eyes were turning red and were pleading. I couldn’t believe what ‘s going on.  But it’s enough am tired of them. I sent them  to their room after my last word. We were all quiet. I hope they meant what they said. They were sorry. UGHHHHHHHHHH my heart…..

What’s next ? Will they be the same?
