A good reminder for all of us...

My officemate Habs emailed me this, and I swear it made me cry. So I decided to blog it, as a reminder for all of us to value our parents... Read on.

Sa aking pagtanda, unawain mo sana ako at pagpasensiyahan.

Kapag dala ng kalabuan ng mata ay nakabasag ako ng pinggan o nakatapon ng sabaw sa hapag kainan,
huwag mo sana akong kagagalitan.
Maramdamin ang isang matanda. Nagse-self-pity ako sa tuwing sinisigawan mo ako.

Kapag mahina na ang tenga ko at hindi ko maintindihan ang sinasabi mo,
huwag mo naman sana akong sabihan ng "binge!"
paki-ulit nalang ang sinabi mo o pakisulat nalang. Pasensya ka na, anak. Matanda na talaga ako.

Kapag mahina na ang tuhod ko,
pagtiyagaan mo sana akong tulungang tumayo,
katulad ng pag-aalalay ko sa iyo noong nag-aaral ka pa lamang lumakad.

Pagpasensyahan mo sana ako kung ako man ay nagiging makulit at paulit-ulit na parang sirang plaka.
Basta pakinggan mo nalang ako.
Huwag mo sana akong pagtatawanan o pagsasawaang pakinggan.
Natatandaan mo anak noong bata ka pa? kapag gusto mo ng lobo, paulit-ulit mo 'yong sasabihin,
maghapon kang mangungulit hangga't hindi mo nakukuha ang gusto mo. Pinagtyagaan ko ang kakulitan mo.

Pagpasensyahan mo na rin sana ang aking amoy. Amoy matanda, amoy lupa.
Huwag mo sana akong piliting maligo. Mahina na ang katawan ko. Madaling magkasakit kapag nalamigan, huwag mo sana akong pandirihan.
Natatandaan mo noong bata ka pa? pinagtyagaan kitang habulin sa ilalim ng kama kapag ayaw mong maligo.

Pagpasensyahan mo sana kung madalas, ako'y masungit, dala na marahil ito ng katandaan.
Pagtanda mo, maiintindihan mo rin.

Kapag may konti kang panahon, magkwentuhan naman tayo, kahit sandali lang.
Inip na ako sa bahay, maghapong nag-iisa.
Walang kausap.
Alam kong busy ka sa trabaho, subalit nais kong malaman mo na sabik na sabik na akong makakwentuhan ka,
kahit alam kong hindi ka interesado sa mga kwento ko.
Natatandaan mo anak, noong bata ka pa? Pinagtyagaan kong pakinggan at intindihin ang pautal-utal mong kwento tungkol sa iyong teddy bear.

At kapag dumating ang sandali na ako'y magkakasakit at maratay sa banig ng karamdaman,
huwag mo sana akong pagsawaang alagaan.
Pagpasensyahan mo na sana kung ako man ay maihi o madumi sa higaan,
pagtyagaan mo sana akong alagaan sa mga huling sandali ng aking buhay.
Tutal hindi na naman ako magtatagal.

Kapag dumating ang sandali ng aking pagpanaw,
hawakan mo sana ang aking kamay at bigyan mo ako ng lakas ng loob na harapin ang kamatayan.

At huwag kang mag-alala,
kapag kaharap ko na ang Diyos na lumikha,
ibubulong ko sa kanya na pagpalain ka sana ...
dahil naging mapagmahal ka sa iyong ama't ina...

Dressed to Kill 5

Whoa!

Rye and I hosted the traditional fashion event of Kalis 7.0, the biggest airsoft competition of the year. It was dubbed D2K5 (Dressed to Kill 5). The Amoranto Stadium was packed with people who looked like authentic soldiers. It was pretty fascinating. I'm not really into airsoft because I'm absolutely TERRIFIED of guns, real or not. Rye's friends are encouraging me to join. I have yet to gather my courage and overcome my fear. But anyway, I had a great time hosting their event.

Daddy's Girl

If you know my dad, then you know how strict and serious he is, no-nonsense all-business. But his funny side is the part of him that I love most.

My daddy!

Kaya ba ng daddy mo yan? :)

Delectable discoveries in Tagaytay

Here are two great food stops you can check out when you find yourself in Tagaytay... both tried and tested by amateur food and hotel enthusiasts - my honey and myself. :)

GREEK TAVERNA

Lovely blue interiors exuding feelings of calm and coziness.

Hon and I have been to Tagaytay many, many times and we've passed by this quaint, little restaurant along the road going to the more famous spots like Leslie's and Dencio's. Then one time, we decided to give it a try. We were intrigued by it, and since we both love mediterranean food, we checked it out.

the feel of greece
Posters and pictures of Greece adorn the walls...making the Mediterranean experience even more authentic.

moussaka
One of the most popular Greek dishes, the moussaka. Theirs is the best and most authentic we have tasted so far!

lamb 2
Honey's Lamb dish was superb!

yummy appetizer
My beef gyros was delicious! And so was our appetizer. I forgot what it was called. :)

special greek sauce

Manos

After our wonderful meal, a little pose with Manos, the owner. We had a great time, Mr. Manos! Thanks much!

Endless meaty delights at BRAZIL BRAZIL

meaty delights!

Looking for delectable grilled meat? Satisfy your carnivorous craving at BRAZIL BRAZIL, where they serve endless grilled delights!

Hon and I had dinner at their Metrowalk branch, and we tried their buffet for only 550++ per head. Aside from the mouth-watering dishes the buffet had to offer, their grill offered the promise of soft, juicy and savory meats.

There's a green-and-red-faced yoyo on each table. Put the green face up, and they serve you all the grilled goodies non stop! Different types of pork, different types of beef, various kinds of fish, grilled chicken, grilled corn, grilled bananas, grilled apples and grilled pineapple. Ooh la la! Plate's getting full? Flip the yoyo and put the red face up to take a breather.

yummy!

Sarap! Winner! :)
After paying for our reasonably priced, super yummy meals, I went to the grill and posed for the cam! The cook and waiters were watching us with big smiles, and gladly gave us our yoyo to take home. :)
