Chewy

I want you to meet Chewy, Chizka’s youngest female puppy. She is my share among the five puppies and I am glad I took a good pick. Below is a picture of her when she was a month old. Such a sweet little thing!

Chewy

Chewy is now 3 months and a few weeks old. She’s grown up into a stout, little pup. Just like her mother, she is short but not as hairy though.She has big ears pointed up, unlike Chiz. Nevertheless, she is as cute and sweet and nice as Chizka. I am so glad she got those qualities from her mother.

Here is out recent bonding taken using my webcam last night. I was busy in front my computer talking to a friend while playing Wartune when she was bugging me with something. She wanted to be rubbed on the belly and be cuddled, so like Chizka!

A Pose With Chizka’s Puppies

Happy April Fool’s Day everyone! I am one of the fools on April Fool’s Day for believing YouTube is really shutting down. What a fool of me. Lol.

Anyway, I am returning to the blog land. I am still addicted to Wartune but not as much as before. I have to lay low and start running back to making a living again or else my mother won’t stop nagging me.

Since today is April 1, I thought of the Blog Photo Challenge. What a good day to start! With Blog Photo Challenge, I can pull inspiration to blog daily.

A photo for Blog Photo Challenge – April 1.

For the first day of April, I would like to share a pose with my puppies..err Chizka’s puppes. You bet it right, this isn’t a very recent photo. This was taken last January when Chizka’s puppies were just about 2 or 3 weeks old. Don’t I look like a momma to these puppies? They are so cute, aren’t they? From five puppies, we are down to having just two puppies in the house. One was taken to my Uncle’s home, one to younger sister’s and the other one Mucho, Cheep’s puppy died a month ago due to internal bleeding after being run over by a motorbike.

A Sure Hint

This is a very sure hint to Cheep’s gift for me. It surely is a pair of shoes.

Last December 24, we spent the simplest and the loneliest Christmas ever. Why? Everything about Christmas in our little town is changed. I blame the church people for it. It was not Christmas-like last December 24 even with the presence of the foodies on our table. I was just glad I received a few gifts from my online sponsors and from my family before and after the 24th. The earliest I received is a pair of wedge sandals from Cheep. I already had an idea it was a pair of shoes when I first saw the gift. I wasn’t mistaken. The picture of the sandals will be posted in my other site, the Whims and Craze.

Bond With Candy

Candy and I have been bonding a lot lately. Who is Candy by the way? Candy is one of Chizka’s puppies.

366 Blog Photo Challenge

By her sweet name Candy, you can tell she’s a female pup. During the first two days spending time with the puppies, I have set my eyes on Candy. She is the biggest among the pups but the most behaved. She is just relaxed. She doesn’t cry too much unlike the other pups. She just stays silently sleeping in one corner. As you can see in the picture above, she is looking so contented and comfortable sleeping on my lap. She reminds of my first dog Sarah, a Labrador-Retriever who liked sleeping on my lap and when cuddled. I hope though Candy will grow behaved and not spastic like Sarah.

As much as I wanted to keep Candy, I couldn’t. My mother has also set eyes on her and wanted her as pet. So before we part ways, I have bonded with her lately. I let her sleep on my lap while I am in front the computer and Chzika can only watch everytime. I also let her sleep on the couch with me. For the last few days, I fall asleep with her sleeping on my belly. I instructed Rina to just transfer the dog to their bed when I totally fall asleep afraid I might crush the puppy.

A Picture That Started an Online Friendship

It is time to walk down the memory lane again to bring to mind those sweet, happy, and sad but worth-sharing memories. I would like to share this one memorable photo that started a friendship between me and ate Therz after uploading it on Friendster. Yes, it happened during the friendster era. Also, this ‘share’ is kind of delicious too…why?


It’s a picture taken at a Jolly-Kiddy Party I attended with the hub! This was taken way back in 2008 I think. Yes, it was 2008 because I surely was married in this size of me in the picture. Haist, see what my husband did to me? He turned me into a…fine… not-so-huge whale but still a whale.

Anyway, this very picture above brought back memories of friendship. That’s the picture that started the friendship between me and ate Therz through a social networking site, Friendster.

See our conversation below:

Ate Therz was the wife of hubby’s friend (an ex-wife now). By the time we met online, she was at the US working while the husband stayed in the Philippines watching over their home construction located not very far from where we lived then. I liked her. She was so warm and friendly that we became friends at a blink. It was fun talking to her esp. when we talked about our other half. I knew she was happy about her husband then but later we heard a bad news that they were breaking up. It happened after she came to the Philippines for a vacation. It was also the first time we met personally, would be the last. She found someone in the US and was reported pregnant. Since then, she stopped talking to me online.

I didn’t know why she stopped contacting me but I had a feeling she was shy or just didn’t feel like talking to me. As a woman and a wife who’s currently undergoing bad issues in marriage  I can understand her.  She sure has one good reason why she left the hubby’s friend and whatever the reason was, I respect it.  I still like her and I will treasure the online friendship we once had.

Rainbow After The Rain

Lying in bed for one whole week, barely moving and standing only when in need of some comfort (CR), was more tiring than doing an online work. Oh how I wished for a fast recovery during those days of pain so I could sit and blog again. I actually was still blogging during the first two days of the formation of the cyst but on the third day, the pain became unbearable that I had to lie down until the seventh day. Boring + Painful, it surely was a very bad combination. No entertainment. My books became unattractive (due to the pain). No TV in the room. I’ve have been seeing my room’s ceiling a lot for one week and I was kind of fed up by that view. That’s why, when the cyst finally went away, which was around four in the morning on Wednesday last week, I stood up, rushed outside and looked up the sky.  I sighed with relief. I was so happy to be able to walk again without pain.

Few days after, my walking got back to normal. I even climbed up a mountain with my cousin. Thanks to her for that cool mountain adventure. Although we weren’t able to gather some young coconuts for buko salad as planned, it was still fun. I was thankful that at least I had some exercise. To my gratefulness for being able to walk, I gave a piggy-back ride to cousin’s youngest daughter Momay while going down the sloppy hill.

Isn’t it nice to be so alive and lively? To be free from any illnesses? During those days I was in bed, I promised to myself that once I get better, or once I’ll be able to stand up again, I will jog around town. I even joked at my sister that I’ll do the “tumbling” stunt. Lol! Well, I just did more than that for I climbed a mountain. I will climb a coconut tree next time…lol!
