On Demand, In Demand

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Charter. All opinions are 100% mine.

Belated Merry Christmas everyone! How were your holiday celebrations?

Well, as far as I'm concerned, Christmas was just wonderful. It's always great to be able to spend it with my family and the people I love. Plus this Christmas is extra special this year with the new addition to our family: baby Luigi. With the gift of the new baby's coming, I just wouldn't ask for anything more.

Speaking of gifts, I'm still holding on the decision on what to give my husband for Christmas. I was only able to buy him clothes and a pair of shoes (which I don't think officially qualify as Christmas gifts since the money used literally still came from him). Anyway, I'm thinking of applying either for a DSL connection for him or getting him Charter digital. Problem is, I really don't know much about HD TV. I actually clicked on the web to learn more at and found out what I needed to know. Plus, I now get updates and fun extras on Charter’s Facebook page to see what they have in store for my husband once we subscribe to On Demand.


Do you think my husband would like this Christmas gift idea? Well, we'll soon find out!

Merry Christmas to Everyone!

Make your way to Bethlehem, go up to the Child, rock him in your arms, say warm and tender things to him, press him close to your heart... I am not talking childish nonsense, I am speaking of love! And love is shown with deeds. In the intimacy of your soul, you can indeed hug him tight. (The Forge, 345)

Have a merry Christmas to you and your whole family!

Rubbing Elbows...

...with the President (and other VIPs).

...that's how our annual office Christmas party has always been.

Boring? Well, not really. It's actually kinda enjoy to eat and party with our bosses once a year. :-)

(My other less serious party here.)

Same Time Last Year...

About a year ago, it was just all about two pink lines...

Now, it's about two BIG eyes...and MORE! :-)

I love you baby!

You Must be an Angel!

Does Zoe look like a real angel here? So cute, right?

While looking for Free Wordpress themes for my old vinanini wordpress blog (my original blog!), I found this cute thing online. I managed to use one of Zoe's photos and upload it into this angel picture. (Oh, the many enjoyments of blogging and the web!)

Speaking of angels, I remember this conversation we had with Zoe a few days ago.

Mommy: What would you give to Daddy and Mommy this Christmas, Zoe?
Zoe: Magpapakabait na po ako (I'll be a good girl already).
Mommy: Why? Hasn't Zoe been good?
Zoe: Hindi, si Luigi lang ang mabait. (No, only Luigi has been good).

"Paawa" effect pa ha.

On the side, I'm giving myself a mental note not to compare the two so as not to bring about sibling rivalry or something to that effect.

In Honor of Today's Feast

The Immaculate Conception of the Escorial
c1678 Museo del Prado, Madrid

Almighty God, Omnipotent and Infinitely Wise, had to choose his Mother. What would you have done, if you had had to choose yours? I think that you and I would have chosen the mother we have, filling her with all graces. That is what God did: and that is why, after the Blessed Trinity, comes Mary. Theologians have given a rational explanation for her fullness of grace and why she cannot be subject to the devil: it was fitting that it should be so, God could do it, therefore he did it. That is the great proof: the clearest proof that God endowed his Mother with every privilege, from the very first moment. That is how she is: beautiful, and pure, and spotless in soul and body!

Part of my Christmas Wish List...

...this one I want to either my sister (as a teaching aid) or Zoe (for future use). Just don't know how I'll have it shipped here.
