Maksim Gabriel: The Angel of a Growing Family

Hello Gorgeous Reader!

 

I bring joyful news! An angel is born to our family… ^_^

Meet Maksim Gabriel. Born: August 1, 2012. The first grandchild of our family.

He is the first born son of my younger brother who is the second child of our family. Because I’m the eldest, that means ‘yes’ he had a baby before I did. And for some twist of fate my sister, the third child of the family is also expecting a child due this January 2013. That means my youngest brother and I are left childless. (He better not think of something crazy! LOL)

The baby got his name from this guy. Maksim Mrvica a contemporary pianist who plays classical music like rock&roll.

 

 

My brother used to play the keyboards in a band. The baby’s mom is a ballerina.  I guess music is their common denominator. They met way back in high school. They always hung-out at our house with other classmates to make projects or celebrate birthdays. They were really good friends then. I never figured they would end up together.

I’ll let you in on a secret. My brother had this huge crush on her in high school. He would say her name while he’s asleep. LOL! shhh~She’s a very nice girl, probably the nicest one among my brother’s girlfriends. And it’s great to have her part of our family.

welcome maksim

Babies are truly bundles of joy. I could not help but smile when I saw my very first nephew. I just want to hug and kiss and spoil him! LOL (I’m an aunt!)

My parents were surely super duper excited to be grandparents. My mom even left me because she was in such a rush to get back to the hospital. LOL

Oh how our family grows! I’m surely expecting a fun filled Christmas.

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 …
