Scary Story

I was never malalapitin sa mga ghosts unlike my brother (who is always visited by my lolo) and my husband (who has several ghosts encounters). But this instance really scared the crap out of me.

I was still with my previous Company when this happened. We had some visitors here in Manila for the 2-day Fleet Safety Asia Pacific Conference. On the second day, we rented a van and accompanied our guests in Intramuros. We roamed around the Walled City, took some pictures of the place and had dinner at Ilustrado’s.

After dinner, we dropped off our guests at the hotel and said goodbyes. Then, we were on our way home. Maybe 5 minutes after we left the hotel, my boss was stretching his arms. The driver suddenly said, “Sir, wag niyo pong masyadong ilabas yung kamay niyo, may kasama po kasi tayo sa likod.” (Sir, do not over extend your arms, we have company at the back). My boss and I looked at each other asking in silence what the driver was saying. I thought there was a psycho at the back of the van who was ready to kill us. My boss then asked the driver what he means by “we have company”. The driver said that there was a lady at the back. He said that she was with us all the time - from Ilustrado’s restaurant to the hotel to that time the driver told us about her. My boss then asked what she looks like. The driver told us that the lady was wearing a bridal gown. (Waaaaah, this incident happened April 2007 and I was about to get married on June 2007. Aside from being afraid of the ghost, I was also scared that this might be bad luck or bad omen). We were so scared that we never looked at the back of the van. We did not move so much on our seats. I was even avoiding the rear view mirror as I might see something!!!

But as we were traversing South Super Highway, the driver suddenly said that the lady has already disappeared. Hay thank you Lord!

The previous plan was the driver and I will bring my boss first to his home then I will be next. Good thing, my boss asked me if I want to be dropped off at his home and he will just bring me home instead. Without blinking an eye, I said yes! Wala ng hiya hiya! I was really really scared. I thought I am going to pass out!!!

After that, my boss told me never to get vans from that Car Company again!

Friday Favorites - Lotion

If I do not put lotion on my skin, it gets itchy and so dry! But I cannot use just any lotion coz my skin is sooo sensitive! I have tried a lot of lotions like Aveeno, J&J Baby Lotion, Nivea, Neutrogena and a lot more. I even tried Neutrogena Body Oil, J&J Baby Oil. When I tried all of them, I got red spots all over! =( 
I was feeling hopeless. Then, I tried Body Shop Cocoa Butter. Ooooh, love love love it! It is quite expensive but it is okay, at least I will no longer suffer from dry and itchy skin! =D

2 puzzles at a time

Two weeks ago, I posted a video of Antonio while he was completing a puzzle. Last week, I was able to capture a video of him completing 2 puzzles!

Note that he was swaying and humming at the first part of the video. He was also making sure the writings on the shapes are not upside down! =)

I am blessed!

I have been having sumpong attacks (again) for the past few days. My ever so patient husband just tells me that we should be thinking of happy thoughts...positive vibes lang dapat! I know we have so many things to be thankful husband and Antonio are on the top of the list. Pero madaling sabihin, mahirap gawin diba? Promise, I am really trying hard! 

Like what I have mentioned in my previous post that whenever I am down, God does something to wake me up...He did it again this time. Haha!

I received this Facebook message from my mother-in-law this morning (after I posted another video of Antonio).

Dear Rianne
Antonio is so smart. Hats off to you for bringing up a smart boy. It pays to be a stay at home mom. Love and Kisses for Antonio

O, bongga diba? =)

I am thinking of posting here all of the blessings, either big or small, that we have. So I can always always remind myself that I am loved by the Lord.

Not cool, Mr. Carlos Celdran!

I am sure a lot of you have heard or read about Celdran's Jose Rizal Act. He said that he has no regrets in doing it. That he is just exercising his right of free speech...a peaceful protest. Because he is disappointed with the position of the Catholic Church regarding RH Bill.

What the???!!! So is that an excuse to disrupt a solemn ceremony? Does he not know that it is a HOLY Mass? Sometimes, educated people do the stupidest things!  

Please do not get me wrong. Even I am pro-RH Bill. But I will not do such FOOLISH thing.

Boo, Mr. Carlos Celdran....Not cool!
