Breakfast with Family

I wanted to let my baby play at the Jollibee playland the other morning so we went there.  My baby craved for chicken and rice and gravy so we decided to have breakfast there too.

I tried its baked hash brown to see if it's as tasty as the fried hash brown of Mc Donald's.  Sadly, I felt that it was too bland, and I missed the fatty oil that goes with frying the thing.  But, picture-wise, it looked so good that I decided to post this here.  The palabok also looked good to eat.  Actually, it's the only palabok that I really like (though I can't finish off one serving of it).

The funny thing about the little boy was that, at the time we ordered, the lines were really long, considering it's a big branch and there were many counters, my baby skipped the line, went to the cashier and he said, "pabili po ng chicken and rice and gravy." Hahahahah! The crew was too busy too notice his cuteness though, as my baby was ignored. Kawawa naman.

at P23.00, this is okay
still yummy after all these years

and here he is, with his chicken, rice and gravy. I even asked the crew to pour gravy on the chicken aside from that provided in little canisters

Merry Christmas!!!

Sorry, I've been dormant for quite a while.  December has been a really, really busy month and I had no time to update my blog.  Also, I changed my internet provider.  Sun internet was pitiful in my place, so I switched to Smart Wimax.  So far, it has given me good internet service, except for the occasional pathetic signal.  (And I have yet to get my free phone even if they told that I should expect it last week.)

So now, I wish to thank all my family, friends and loved ones for showering us with their love, concern and gifts- lots and lots of them.

I decided to take pictures of some of the gifts, because I have this knack of forgetting who gave what during Christmas.

Here are some of them:

You bring a piece of heaven here on earth with your love, care  and generosity.  God bless you.

Starlight, starbright

Starlight, starbright, first star I see tonight.  I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight...

Last Tuesday night, while riding a motorcycle on my way home, I was gazing at the night sky and to my surprise, a falling star appeared out of nowhere, and in a heartbeat, was out of my sight.

I rarely see a falling star in a year so I wished a wish right away, wishing of the first thing that came to my mind- money. 

Hahahaha. How mundane, how materialistic, how human. And I changed my wish, even if the falling star was long gone.

And then I thought of aliens in the outer space, and the planet Jupiter, and that special moment that I see that star with the love of my life. And my thoughts of the little boy, sleeping in our bed, waiting for our arms to hold him tight when we finally arrive home.

It was a five-minute ride; short yet special.

Ah, life! Just like a falling star, its arms captivate us into a long embrace.
