Clovey & Phoebe

We thought of naming our car Phoebe (sounds like Feby, short for February) since we got her on Feb. 20, 2011 exactly two months after our wedding.

His galaxy, My galaxy

My husband is no expert in pulling off surprises (succesfully). Whenever he attempts to pull off one, an argument or misunderstanding usually precedes it.

The first time happened in april 2010. I was mad at him for taking a different schedule in oceanjet for our trip to bohol. He chose the time which was close to the time that I was supposed to deliver my speech during the Toastmasters district convention. I feared that he might not make it on time and true enough, he missed my speech. So i did not talk to him that night. I really wanted him to be there, more than anything else. When we were about to call it a night, i told him how disappointed and mad i was. I must have been nagging too much that he handed over to me a box. Inside it was the engagement ring. And he explained that the reason why he was not able to make it to my speech was that the ring was still shipped from the manila branch of the jewelry store on that very same day.

The second time was during our first valentines as husband and wife. We initially agreed to give each other gifts that we wanted. I have been drooling over a particular bag i saw at rustan's while he has been bugging me to buy him crocs. I dont know what hit me, but i told him that we'll not push through with it because 'sayang ang money'. Plus, we dont really need those things at the moment. I told him we need to save for more important things. He told me that i am really a wife already (although i know he meant that i was starting to sound like my mother). So we just spent some quality time together at Harold's on the 13th since i have a hearing at Danao on the 14th.

I was expecting to receive a card from him since that has been our tradition every valentines. But to my surprise, i received none. I was hoping maybe when i get home from my hearing. I had rough day that day since my hearing lasted the whole day. I waited for a ride back to the city for over 30mins. I was really, really tired and hungry. I reached SM at past 6pm already. I wanted him to meet me at SM so that we can go home together. I waited for his reply but there was none. I called him but he was not picking up my calls. Then he later asked me to meet him at his office and that was when i lost my patience due to exhaustion and hunger. I hailed a cab and went home instead.

To my surprise, he was already in the house. I did not speak to him. When i went back inside our room, there was something in our bed wrapped in bondpapers. I purposely did not open it because i was mad at him. I took the gift and set it aside and took a quick nap. When he went inside the room, he was smiling. He thought that i opened it already. When he saw the gift unopened, his facial expression changed. Before he can say something, i told him how i felt. I told him i was not amused with him and that i was also a bit disappointed for almost letting valentines day end without giving me a card. U honestly thought that he was giving me a book since it looked and felt like a book. And he knows that I am not a book-lover.

I sensed that he was a bit sad when I did not open his gift. Out of guilt, I opened it when he stepped out of the room. And there it was, the Galaxy. I called him and asked him why he is giving me this. I told him that I was worried because he must not touch his savings as that would be used when he opens up his own firm this May. He told me that he has been wanting to give me that from the time I lost my Blackberry.

Despite the foiled surprise, I do appreciate my husband's efforts. I told him in consolation that may be next time, he can pull it off perfectly.

To my clovey, again thank you very much for the gift. I will treasure and take good care of it.

I was never fond of wearing earrings because my ears get easily irritated, whether it's genuine or just fashion earrings. But because of my profession (and yes, age), I guess I have to dress up appropriately. And that would necessarily have to include accessories such as earrings. I always don the fresh water pearls that my parents gave me on my birthday. Lately, I tried wearing my other earrings. Last weekend, I had the chance to visit a popular fashion jewelry designer since I was within the vicinity of her shop. And I could not resist buying these two pairs since I got them on a very good price. It is wise to buy in her shop because there are items that are on sale. I'll definitely visit her shop again if I have the time (and extra moolah)!

Just say YES!

Our proposal pics got featured in today's issue of the Manila Bulletin. The team from Wedding Essentials saw our pics from the website of our official photographer Mark Cantalejo. And they decided to include our pics in their article.

We are so ecstatic when we knew about this! We got feedback from the kids who were part of this shoot and they were all happy and thrilled to see their faces on the newspaper! =)

Special thanks go to Sly Climaco, our videographer for coming up with this unique concept. Also, our heartfelt thanks to the kids and teachers of Dynamic Minds Learning House, Inc..

It's Official!

I shall be officially and legally known by this name.

pamper sunday

Since I got married, my Sundays are reserved for cleaning our room. I usually clean my room twice a month before. Now, I clean it every week. After a tiring day yesterday, I treated myself to a rejuvenating mask.

sweet tooth anyone?

Cakes from The Pantry

Too bad I was not able to get the names of the cake. But they all tasted good though. I'll definitely visit this place again.

Our First Valentines

I am having a light-bulb moment now in the middle of my preparation for a lecture this friday. Today is Feb. 1-- the first day of the love month. And this will be our first valentines as husband & wife. I should make each day of this month special. And right in front of me is my collection of post-its! A post-it each day for hubby.

Pre-valentine wish

They're having a valentine concert at the Waterfront on Feb13. A ticket would be a perfect valentine's gift. (crossing my fingers)

spread the word on...
