Julia is now 3 years and 2 months old. I’m not sure if we’ll let her go to school by next school year. If we found her ready, then we’ll try out. If not, we have to wait for next year then. I’m happy and proud that she knows her ABC and 123. We’re practicing with colors as well. I started off with the rainbow colors, and so far she’s familiar with it too. Proud momma I am for having a smart toddler.
The other week, I asked her to trace out her name. Below is our first attempt. Not bad right? She knows the letter if you’ll identify it one by one. We have to work out with her writing in straight lines. I’ll get there.
This week I’m starting to let her be familiar with the numbers. She knows her number 1 which is a good thing. She can line up as many number 1 as she can. It’s not perfect, because you’ll see a short sometimes a long number 1. Hahaha! But again, not bad for a 3 year old who is just beginning to write. Then yesterday, I showed her how to write number 2. I used the connect the dots basis since she still can’t follow a perfect curve. So far, she’s getting to it perfectly fine. I noticed as well that she’ll start with her right hand. Then she’ll try to write with the left, then probably she had a hard time writing with the left, she shifted back to being a right handed. My fellow mommy says it’s normal at their age.
Anyway, I thank my SIL for encouraging me to start preparing her. I just hope that I will have more patience with teaching my daughter. It’s really hard. I know now the feeling of what my mom was doing before with me. Wow! A mother’s love is truly indescribable.
I used to play the guitar when I was still in high school. But I don’t play anymore. Hubby bought me a guitar for my 29th birthday, but I sold it after a month. I’m not using it that much since I don’t have the time and I suddenly realized that I don’t have the passion anymore to play with it. It would be nice to be play along with it along with a blackstar ht 40 tube guitar combo amp. It will always be a dream wish and play a live acoustic music in front of my family. For now, it’ll always be dream.
It’s the Chinese New Year today. Most of my friends are celebrating it in the Philippines. Their lucky charms to attract good vibes for the year of the water dragon are all ready. I only have this lucky coin that my best friend’s aunt gave me last 2005. I have it ever since and since most of my IG friends are posting their charms, I remember that I have one too.
My lucky coin is up as well and inside my wallet again. Hopefully, aside from luck, it will give us a new and a brighter career too. Year of the water dragon, please be good to us year of the monkey.
You very well know how it all started. My fellow Twitter friends are all over it, so here I am. I’m starting with bits of photos from our previous trip to UK and the places we’ve been. Follow me, and I’ll follow you.

If God will give me the right work at the right time, I’ll be needing trousers for work. A friend recommended me to check over Gray & Osbourne’s website since they have fabulous in line with Gardeur trousers. While browsing over their designs, I noticed that they have good designs for straight leg trousers which is just the right thing for me. I want a cut that will make me feel comfortable and I’m thankful that I found the best ones on their site. What do you think about this one below?
It looks very elegant right? I love the color too. Just perfect for work. It’s so nice that you can easily shop online for these type of clothing. It makes life easier especially for a stay-at-home mom like me. Now I just need to look for the right size for me. Their sizes are from 8 to 24. Hopefully I can identify as to which size I fall into.
I know it’s late but for journal’s sake need to write it up.

As you notice, the last 4 months is empty. That’s because I want to keep it blank so to forget what we experienced for those 4 months. Loneliness, emotional pain and burden for my husband, all down the drain as we start our new chapter for this year 2012. To sum it all, 2011 is not our year. But Allah is still good to us. In spite of those empty months, he gave us Lily to believe and hope for a better us. Ya Rab Ya Allah! May he guide us as we journey our new life.
This will be my first post for the year 2012. Sorry for being so idle these past few days. Aside from coping up with the weather, SIL took us around Sharjah yesterday. It’s really fun to be with your family – that’s all I can say. Looking forward to be on the work mode in the next couple of days. Living you behind this photo of us taken by SIL in Sahara Mall after lunch. Sorry for the mess in front of us, hahaha!
May this year brings forth good vibes to everyone, peace on earth, happiness and more blessing from Allah. 2011 is a year full of trials for us. But we hang on, trusted in Allah that everything will be okay. Alhamdulillah everything ended in a positive way. I claim that 2012 will be a year for us to start building and re-shaping our lives again. God Bless everyone.
