Cheesy as it may, but I'll make out the most of thanking the following, hehe.
To Facebook, for reminding friends and family from world over (naks!) of my birthday. Greetings poured -- on my profile walls, phone calls, text messages, and email. To everyone for the greetings, you made my day *wink*.
To Spice Island for the sushi, lobster and the prawn with head bigger than it's body.
And to you who patiently viewed this entry =)
Salamat, thank you, merci, danke, grazie !
I still have ill hangover against a Filipino blogger who amidst almost 300 comments in two years against her (ooops my nastiness ahead) un-civilized/ un-professional/ ignorant Igorots remarks, remains unwilling to concede to her arrogance.
Go Ingrid go, show 'em we Igorots are humans too and we got talent =) .
Matago tago tako!
"Mama, Papa lost money..." came my Gremlin soon as I sat in the car when they fetched me from work today.
His dad went on say that the Gremlin told him "Don't worry papa, we'll find the lost money". Then the dad: "But I lost them in the internet". Gremlin: "We find it in the internet! But how are we going to find it in the internet?"
The dad just started forex trading, and he thought he got himself unguarded on the Greece economy thing, hence losing now on the Euro- USD trading.
He had traded all his $ on the Euro and is losing them, letting him learn the lesson of financial management's stand on portfolio diversification. That is, mitigating risk by putting money in different pots for lose some and win some scenarios.
Have you tried forex trading too?
( It's weekend here again in the sandpit =) Happy weekend friends!)
It's 2:20 am and the Gremlin is still awake. I'm been on the mad mode putting him to sleep but he cares less.
He kicks the wall, whispers "Goodnight mama, I love you!" every minute, opens his eyes half way.
I have yet to get back to my laptop so I badly needed to put the Gremlin to sleep.
Otherwise, if it's a working day the following morning, I turn my back against him and leave him turning about. This is usually between 1 am to2 am.
Anyway, the dad takes the Gremlin on his side.
The Gremlin would be up between 10am to 11am. Naps would be 30minutes to an hour around 5pm.
The dad and I knows this is not the typical kid sleep pattern and we are to blame. I guess this will remain until he attends school. By then, we wont worry of taking him out every night as part of "outside the apartment" time since he would have it at school.
"Mama, I am Kalel Mosaiaah, I'm not Baby!" the Gremlin complains repeatedly when I refer to him as Baby... March 31st, 2010

"Mama, why do you have many hair?" I asked back "Why do I have hair Kalel?" Gremlin: "Because you're a girl!" March 29th, 2010

"Why papa Arnel, why not daddy Arnel?" The gremlin asks his dad. Later he said "Mama looks like a mommy!" March 27th, 2010

Had again held the Gremlin by his foot upside down for being bangad. We could ignore but we cant tolerate his not minding what we tell him. March 15th, 2010
Gremlin: "And I draw wocks". Me: What's wocks? Gremlin:" Mama, stones!" He still cant pronounce "rrr" well in english words. March 15th, 2010
