Personal Profile -

THE AUTHOR

Choosing between Be with the one you love and The one who loves you... I chose both. Giving up my career and move to a different country where you feel like stranger wasn't that easy as I thougt it would, but no regrets. I have a great loving husband and a wonderful good baby to share life with. They are my family, which I'm proud and happy to call it my own. Someday, we can go back to where i came from and make it up what i've missing. Thanks a lot for visiting my blog, I would love to hear from you again. Your comments are greatly appreciated.

Contents - Contents are a mixture of personal annecdotes and family life interspersed with fantastic family photos. The posts are so personal and honest, you can easily empathize with the author. I love her sincerity and the transparent way she relates her life. No make over or pretensions. I love it when she admits her mistakes in life like when she bought a house out of impulsiveness only to give it up later on. She had a wonderful life in the Philippines with her loving relatives and friends but she had to give them all up when she got married and migrated to the States. Now she has two lovable and adorable kids who are the apple of her eyes. Her blog is a must see for all blog hoppers and she is an enduring and loyal friend to those are loyal to her.

Like Dhemz who was so thoughtful and loving to you when she composed a heartfelt poem for you, let this post serves as a belated Birthday and Christmas gift to you and an advanced New Year's gift too.

Hi Sir Mel magandang araw sayo diyan, lalo mo pinasaya ang araw k, nag halo ang pinipigilang luha ko at sip on na ngayon rumisulta na sa ubo sa kakatawa ko dito, its a mixed emotion, im happy and touch for everything you said about me, about my family. Like what bambie said, iba pala talaga ang feeling pa na feature sa blog mo, as in kakaiba can't find the word to express it. Your humor and smart post and genuine opinion never failed to amaze me. Everytime I read your blog post in all of your blog its like a reminder for me to be thankful in single thing i have in life. Your honest comments and fatherly advices inspires me to be contented and be a better person, mom and wife. Your life story inspires me to be selfless.

Wow, great and detailed review for Shydub's site! You said it best about her being loyal to those that are loyal to her.

Her blogs are honest and deep, and can prove to be inspirational and heartfelt to any type of reader.

I admit I do reviews on my WBE site, but not like this. Excellent review for an excellent friend and blogger!

God Bless Mel!

BTW, thanks for your vote on the WBE Blog of Fame, too.:)

Hi Shy,
You deserve everything that I said and so much more. Bago ko ginawa ang review na ito ay nag research akong mabuti sa mga older posts mo. Hindi pa kasi ganun kalalim ang pagkakakilala ko sa iyo. Pero ang pinagugatan nang review ko eh yung nakaka touch na poem para sa birthday mo ni Dhemz. Na feel ko yung depth nang friendship niya sa iyo at napaluha ako dahil duon. Ganun din naman ang pagke care sa iyo ni Rose. Sa lahat nang papuri mo ay ibinabalik ko lahat sa Diyos. Nais kong magbigay maski konting kaligayahan sa mga kaibigan kong bloggers lalo na sa mga Filipina mommy bloggers. Bilib ako sa dedication nyo sa pamilya ninyo. Somehow naiibsan yung pagka miss ko sa misis ko. Ganun siguro talaga ang mga mommies. Masakripisyo para sa minamahal nila sa buhay. Sana ay gumaling na ang sipon at ubo mo at sana maayos ang lagay nang buong pamilya mo. I will always pray for you and for your friends sa blogging world. Natutuwa ako na na appreciate mo yung review ko sa iyo at blog mo. Salamat sa dalaw at pasasalamat. God bless you all always.

Hi Dhemz,
Palagi akong natatawa kapag dumadalaw ka. Palagi kang masaya at palabiro at me sense of humor. Habang tumatagal ay lalo kong naaappreciate kayong magkukumare na me iba ibang personalities. Pero iisa ang similarities ninyo. Pare pareho kayong mga ulirang ina at asawa at duon ko kayo ipinagmamalaki. You make us all proud sa exemplary lives ninyo sa ibang bansa. Marami tuloy na foreigners na ang hinahanap eh Filipina brides. Very faithful na at magaling pa sa bahay at sa pagaaruga nang anak. I hope okay naman ang studies mo frend at with flying colors na naman ang grades mo. Tawag ko nga sa iyo eh walking encyclopedia, lol. Salamat sa dalaw at nakakatuwang comments. God bless you all always.

Hi Rose,
Thanks for the compliments but as always, TO GOD BE THE GLORY. Alam mo talagang sinadya kong maging espesyal yung review kay Shy para maging birhday at Christmas gift sa kanya. Nagaalala kasi ako palagi sa mga comments niya na parang hindi siya masyadong masaya sa buhay. Nung binasa ko yung mga older posts niya ay mas lalo kong na appreciate yung personality niya. Kaya ipinagpi pray ko siya para maging maayos at maligaya ang buhay niya. Naaappreciate ko rin yung mga kindness mo kay Shy na binibiro mong tawaging bakla, lol. In fact natutuwa ako sa inyong lahat. Salamat sa dalaw at sa meaningful comments. God bless you all always.
