Oh the Marry Marriages

Hello Gorgeous Reader!


How was your week? Mine was full of ‘marriages’ ; literally!

As days go by, I’m starting to get busy planning my own wedding. We (my fiancé and I) decided to be hands-on to this and we pretty much marched around the whole city checking out bridal stores, flower shops, invitation makers, etc.~ etc.~

But of course we’re not the only two people in love in this planet. Ours is just one of the 4 stories of marriage that happened this week.

A few weeks ago, my fiancé’s college friend surprised us with the news that she is also getting married. And last Wednesday we attended her beautiful and fun wedding. Kudos to them for the scrumptious food that filled our belly! The wedding was very well organized too. It was filled with fun presentations and dances. I loved how the couple seemed so happy and comfortable with each other. They seemed to be like the best of friends.











On damper state, the wife of my fiancé’s co-worker (both are nice friends to us), had fallen ill. The couple are just a year older than my fiancé  but they were married younger and now have 3 kids. I couldn’t help but feel sorry for their situation. I guess marriage doesn’t mean “a happy ending”. The challenges that await love in marriage is more complicated and would inflict a deeper sense of pain. Unlike the simple “lovers quarrel”, sadness is reflected not just between the couple’s eyes but on their children’s eyes too.

Since marriage is both a challenge and a prize. It is only right to celebrate it too. That was exactly what my parents did on Thursday. They celebrated their 26th Wedding Anniversary. We had food prepared, there was music and they invited friends  and relatives over.They were pretty happy. My mom said, when I told her we were getting married, that marriage is a never ending series of arguments and disagreements. Thinking about it gave me hope that people can still last and be happily married in this day and age; throughout all those arguments.

So those are the stories of marriages that filled my week. I and my fiancé who are about to be married, our newly wed friends, a husband and wife going through tough times and old folks celebrating the longevity of their marriage.

    1. Hi Sam! Oh gosh! There's so much detail into wedding planning... But it's still 5 months away so were still just on the planning stage of it all.

      Sadly there's no traditional wedding dresses in the Philippines unlike other Asian countries. Which makes it so hard for me to pic a dress ~_~

My Speech as a Guest Speaker

Hello Gorgeous Reader!Last March 28, 2014 , I got the rare opportunity to give a speech at the graduation ceremony of my alma mater KM5 now named Fr. William F. Masterson S.J. elementary school.So a little back story. I gave a speech on my own graduation way back year 2000 and it was miserable. I was very sick that day, I even passed out at school before the program. I was there because I volunteered to help with the preparation stuff. During the program I was puking, the world was spinning and I felt so cold. They had me seated while I gave my speech and well, I cried. But I knew I had the best of friends then because my classmates cried with me. Although I know that some of my batch-mates are far more successful than I am and thus more credible to give a speech; I didn’t think twice and said ‘yes’ to my former teacher’s invite. After all, not everyone gets a shot at redemption. (shoutout: *Thank you very much Sir Janeo for the opportunity.*)Okay, so here’s the speech that I gave. It…

Pamamanhikan: A Filipino Tradition

Hello Gorgeous Reader!This is actually an over due blog post. I’ve written a previous draft on this weeks ago but for some reason my computer decided to delete all my drafts. Now I’m forced to rewrite this blog or technically write a new one.Last April first my fiancé went to my residence to formally ask for my hand in marriage from my parents. This is a tradition among Filipinos called “Pamamanhikan”.We’ve been talking about having each other’s parents meet after the engagement. Our first option was to take them out for dinner. But we kind of hesitated over the idea because it would be super awkward to talk about our marriage plans with other people eavesdropping on us at a restaurant. Alas, it was my fiancé’s trusted league of merry-men (a.k.a his workmates) who convinced him to do it the traditional way. That is, to go to my house with his parents and family members bringing food. It was a great idea since it would be the best venue for our families to meet so that the wedding itse…

How to Get Married: Legal Requirements

Hello Gorgeous Reader!NOTE: Please be informed that this blog is based on Cagayan de Oro City requirements. The process for other places may vary and is beyond my jurisdiction. @_@For a marriage to be called valid or legally binding; it must be registered/recorded at the government branch called Civil Registrar. It is basically the logbook of our government. The legality of a marriage has many purposes such as civil, financial,  health benefits, and many more.Below are the steps to get your “Marriage License”.STEP 1Find someone who is willing to marry you. This someone must not be currently within a marriage or ‘free to marry’. Note that there is no divorce in the Phils. Even if that person has been living separately from his/her spouse for longer than 10 years he/she is still considered married by law unless his/her wife/husband is already dead. This person must also be of legal age (18 years old and above). If either of you are within 18-21 years old; you are required to present an …
