Let’s Do Random Q’s

Which store would you choose to max out your credit card?

Ok first of all, I wish I have a credit card hahaha! Smile with tongue out

What time is bed time?

During school days, lights off is 8 o’clock. It will take my kids to doze off after 30 minutes or an hour.

Have you ever been in a beauty pageant?

Oh of course, NO! Smile with tongue out

How many tattoos do you have?

None. Alhamdulillah.

If you don’t have any, have you ever thought of getting one?

Back in College, me and my friends were talking about it. Some says it’s nice to have one. Others says no because of religion and others like me are not just into that thing. Probably because, one we’re afraid of needles and two, we’re afraid of what it will look like once we grow old.

What did you do for your last birthday?

Last year, I celebrated my 32nd birthday in Sharjah with my Sister-in-law’s family. Just a simple gathering and cake to share.

Random Q’s for October

How many rings before you answer the phone?
- If it’s a person that I don’t like to talk to, I give it up to 7 rings. But if it’s a family member let’s say my husband, 2 is enough.

What is your best childhood memory?
- That would be me playing skateboards, roller skating and shooting basketball with my 2 of my childhood friends. James and Benjie are 2 boys that made me do things crazy. I guess that’s why I have a boyish attitude. That stage of my life was full of fun and lots of laughter. Food, movie watching and not thinking about pressure in life. Full of innocence.

What are some of the different jobs that you have had in your life?
- My very first pay check comes from working in TokyoTokyo as a Crew/Cashier. Then after graduating, Customer Service Agent was the first official working title I had. Last position held was a Direct Sales Supervisor. Now, I’m a SAHM. No salary, but I’m fulfilled.

Any new and exciting things that you would like to share?
- There is. But I would like to keep it for now. It’s something that me and my husband are looking forward to for a very very very long time.

What is most important in life?
- My life means my husband and my children. My life is my family (external and internal). Without them, I’m nothing. I have nothing and will be no one.

What Inspires You?
- HIM <3 My husband is the love of my life.

GT: Favorite Word

Girls TalkI haven’t been doing memes lately. Can’t even find the time to run pass all my reads over Google. But for this week’s meme, I couldn’t help myself to join in.

My favorite word is: OKI NGAROD

I don’t know any Ilocano words aside from “ngarod” meaning you agreeing on something with it (I think) and “mangan” meaning “let’s eat”. My mother is born in Pozorrubio Pangasinan while my dad is born in Manila but grew up Cebu, but pursued his studies in Manila where he and my mom met. Anyway, I always use this word in replace to just saying “Okay…”. And the funny thing is that my husband will even reply by saying “Sige na ngarod…” hehehe! :)

4. A PRAYER in the morning, I OFFER FOR A FAST RECOVERY FOR MY DAD WHO IS CONFINED IN THE HOSPITAL RIGHT NOW. A MILD STROKE DUE TO HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE. THIS IS HIS 2ND ATTACK.
5. Seven: IS A LUCKY NUMBER FOR SOMEONE – NOT FOR ME.
6. WE SHOULD ALWAYS APPRECIATE ONE ANOTHER, don’t you think?
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to A QUIET DAY WITH MY FAMILY, tomorrow my plans include CREATING A LAYOUT FOR 1 OR 2 and Sunday, I want to CHECK WHAT ELSE WE CAN DO.

Have a wonderful Friday everyone. TGIF.

However, I always post photos of dear Julie and Julia to update my family (especially my parents) back home. My daughter’s growing up so fast that a it’s bad enough that they are missing a lot of it. It’s the only way for them so see her. My sister even created an account for my mom – but haller, I know she’s the one doing the update for it. :D You can see me more on Twitter though and Instagram. I love the privacy these to social network has right now. Exclusive for dear friends online where I can rant as along as I want. So there you go, that’s my answer for this week’s meme.
