I had a pretty terrific weekend. Like I predicted, it was indeed, bursting with soooo much love and happiness and everything good in between!!!

It took off with me being a Godmother to uber gorgeous Godson, Hayden (will post the pictures once I get them). And I cannot be happier for my friend Caren who found a great husband and father in Dennis. It's really amazing how people can change. Here was a woman who used to be able to drink more than I can and who used to party like there was no more tomorrow. She was always a boy-magnet. Suddenly, she was not the same girl I partied with in Boracay a couple of years back. I just think its amazing what marriage and motherhood has done to her. You can actually see happiness, serenity and a little bit of exhaustion (hehe! From taking care of the baby) in her face. And her hubby, Dennis, without my friend having to say so, would take his hanky and wipe sweat off her face because my friend had her hands full from carrying their son. It was a sight that just made my heart melt faster than an ice cube would liquefy in the unbearable heat this country is experiencing right now. (grabe, ang init talaga, noh?)

Charo and Jovan's wedding is a different, albeit, equally beautiful story. Everything was perfect...just absolutely perfect. Everyone's spirits were high, every single person was smiling and laughing. But of course, Mads, Kookie and I cried while Charo was walking down the aisle (Mauna umiyak, magpapainom, my arse! Haha!). That has got to be the most fun wedding I've been to! It wasn't your typical, conventional wedding and it wasn't the kind where you were forced to act all formal and stuff. Everyone acted like they were on a Saturday night gimmick, except that we were all in formal wear.

To my super duper good friends , Charo and Jovan: I cannot even begin to stress how perfect I think you guys are for each other. Charo, you once told me that when you're in a GOOD relationship, you bring out the best in each other. And I sooo see that in the both of you. I hope to see some little Jovans (take note: PLURAL) in the years to come. I hope you're ready to go crazy, Chawing! Hahahaha! Anyway, when you do go crazy and anytime you need an extra hand, I'll be right here. *claps and chants*

Jay and I turned 3 months (feels longer, actually) last Sunday so...YAAAAY! Congratulations, Sweetie...for lasting this long! Think you can handle a few years more?Hahahahhaa!

Another big congratulations to my shobe, Sunshine who won the silver medal in her FIRST taekwondo competition last Sunday! (take note: FIRST) Yeaaahh, WE KICK BUTT!!! Woohoo! See! All those nights of unconsciously kicking us in your sleep paid off! Bwahahahaha! Proud of ya!

Now, this is a little off-topic but the day after Charo's wedding, I realized that I no longer have a dad who would give me away on mine. *sniff sniff* (IF I EVER DO GET MARRIED, that is.) And so I thought about who the next most influential man in my life is and only one person came to mind. So, this morning, I asked him if he'd give me away on my wedding day (by that time, he'll be walking with a cane and his head will be covered with white hair and I'd be near menopause. Haha!). He said he'd be honored to do it. Coolness!

Thanks, Old Timer...I mean, Coolest Uncle F! Hehehehe!

So, you see, even when the thought of North Korea testing their nukes scares the crap out of me (and the rest of the world) and makes me want to move to Mars, even when I've almost given up hope that the war in Iraq will ever stop and that we will never get world peace no matter how many times we wish for it, even when prices are constantly increasing and salaries are not--in the words of Hugh Grant in the film, "Love Actually", "I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around."

And yes, it is!!!

Have a love-filled week, everyone! :)

about moi

Loves the beach, wishes she had more time and money to travel, recently got hooked to climbing mountains, reads anything she can get her hands on, frustrated writer, adores her 3-year-old Lhasa Apso, Tashi, constantly needs caffeine, wonders when she'll quit smoking, and will most likely die due to liver complications from drinking too much (if the cigarettes doesn't get to her lungs first). Can't live without accessories especially big, dangling earrings, shoe freak (aren't we all?), sucker for discovering hole-in-the-wall restaurants, will ingest anything spicy, enjoys giving and receiving massages, addicted to Friends, Sex and the City and CSI, goes gaga over kids, dreams of being alone with Jim Morrison and smoking a joint with Bob Marley. Would love to party with Gwen Stefani, shop with Patricia Field, write poetry with Maya Angelou and have Sting, Nelson Mandela, Mark Twain and Bono over for dinner.
