My baby cries a lot...;

People say that crying for babies is healthy. This allows their lungs to function even more. But sometimes it worries me to see my baby spend all her day crying. Sometimes I wonder if it doesn't cause a mental traumatisme for her.

Everyday, my baby cries like twenty hours a day. I know that my husband is better in taking care and raising our children (specially he is the one staying at home) it pains me to see how he lets our baby cry all day. When I try to interfere, he would tell me its better to let the baby cry.

Anyone, who can help me,

Giving criticisms to a friend...

We all hate being criticize but we love to give them.

Last vacation, I had the opportunity to meet the girlfriend of my brother. We all went to spent together a one week trip to Puerto Galera. As I love cooking I presumed I will be the one tasked to prepare our food for the entire vacation. Much to my amazement my brother told me that her girlfriend volunteered to cook the food for us. I was happy at a certain point for I will have the opportunity to profit spending this vacation with my husband and children. And besides I thought, the "girlfriend" wants to impress us with her kitchen prowess. Unfortunately, she cooked dishes we are not particular of. Not that its international cuisine but dishes local in their province. Much to our dismay; she massacred a big lapu-lapu we all wanted to see grilled and just eaten with plain soy sauce and kalamansi for dippings with her dish that is pseudo "sinigang and tinola". It was soupy but has not the distinct taste of sour and spicy flavor of sinigang but just a casserole of water that has no taste. Certainly for a family of food lovers, we were all disappointed but how do we criticize someone trying to do her best. She made pork barbeque with no marinade and I tell you it was more of a fat than pork. The meat was no where to be found. Nonetheless, she was so happy serving us. We were polite and gave her compliments but It wasn't the real feelings we have. Have you ever ponder on how do we criticize positively someone?

Looking back on Holyweek practices...

Although this post is a bit too late to talk about Holyweek, my absence for a long while allows me to tackle on this issue. If you would permit.

I would proudly claim that Philippines is one of the country where Holyweek practices still shocks the rest of the world specially when it comes to crucifying people. I haven't seen one myself, but its notoriety made me so curious to know more about this filipino practice. A friend gave me one time a book that talks about this custom. There also exist the sight ofof people beating their back with broken glasses, nails or any pointed stuff attached on a whip. Cruel and barbaric, I often ask myself what do we do these for?

I don't judge people doing these thing but I wonder at what good this thing does to wash away our sins.

Vacation is over!!!

After three weeks of absence i'm finally back into blogging business.

How shall I sum it up:

1. spend holyweek with my family in the province.
2. attended cousin's baptismal
3. attended cousin's wedding
4. went on the beach

It was really fun but as we often say. Good things never last.
