Stage Mom

I am immensely enjoying my well deserve rest from work since October 29. I’ll be back to work on Nov. 02, if president Noynoy Aquino will not declare it as a holiday.

But before my vacation, I got too busy accompanying my kids in their practice and performance for the Achiever’s School Festival. My eldest CJ joined the Cheering Dance competition held last October 27. He was also part of the Jabbawokidz who rendered a special dance number in the early part of the program. CJ was undeniably excited before, during and after the Jabbawokeez performance. He considered it as one of the happiest event in his life. He would watch Jabbawokeez in youtube almost everyday as part of his preparation for their dance number. Unlike in the Cheerdance, he joined because it was a requirement, their grades in PE subject will be based in their participation in the Festival.

On the other hand, my daughter Acey was part of the Mass Demo held last October 28. They rendered a broadway performance and gracefully danced to the tune of Life is a Cabaret, Big Spender and New York, New York. They all looked cute and pretty in their costumes.

I only had 2 hours of sleep for 2 consecutive days. I can not afford to miss the performance of my kids even if it will cause me sleeplessness (is there such a word?). I admit I am a stage mom. I uploaded pictures as soon we got home after every performance so that I could show them to hubby. He’s certainly as excited as I am to see the photos of our kids and who knows, maybe one of them will realize performing onstage is a passion and will bring it to next level :P.

Cebu Business Trip

Our Cebu trip was from Aug. 24 to 27, it was purely business trip, meaning, no time to see and enjoy the tourist spots in Cebu. The hotel we were billeted (Parklane) was a lot better compared to the hotel (Golden Peak) we checked in the first time we went there. We relished the dishes in the restos we dined in. Toots and I fell in love with the coffee caramel latte from dessert factory. I thought that the quesadillas in Zapatas here in Angeles City was the best until I tried the quesadilla in Moon Cafe' in Cebu.

We're happy to meet warm and accomodating people in our Cebu office. I'm certain Toots and I were able to serve our purpose in going there. We were productive all through out our stay and having the opportunity to present to our boss some reports related to our queue and our contributions to the success of the entire queue was considered an "Oh Shit Moment!", we gave our best and we were more than pleased with the result.

Back to Blogging

I know, it's been over two months since my last post. I'm bad for not taking care of my paid domain, now it's gone and if I need to reactivate it, I have to pay double. I'm thankful that my officemate Vic is around to help me out bring back my original free blogspot domain, so now I don't have to worry about paying for domain every year. I already thought of abandoning my blog completely but a part of me is saying to keep it, there are some moments or events in my life that I can bring back only through this online journal, so I decided to keep it for as long as blogspot is here to exist. I just have to inform some friends and fellowbloggers about the change in my blog address.

Now I can say, once a blogger, will always be a blogger.
