Admiring The Script

I know, mommies shouldn’t have crushes but hey, mommies are human too. When we like someone, that someone is probably famous like an actor or a singer. In my case, I admire Danny O’Donoghue. He is the lead singer of The Script. I first noticed him at The Voice UK. I didn’t notice him for his looks as my eyes are only set for my one and only hubby (kisses!). What drew me to him is his amazing talent in singing and song-writing.

His band, The Script is famous for their songs, Break Even, The Man Who Can’t Be Move, For The First Time and many more. They are composed of 3 band players, 1 lead vocal (him), a guitarist and a keyboard player.

I felt bad because few years back, they performed here in Dubai and I was so keen to watch them. I wanted to see how the stage would be prepared and where the band would perform. I wanted to know if they would use special effects during their performance here. But I guess, they didn’t have to do all that as they are really talented through and through.

I am waiting for their next performance in Dubai and I hope by then, I will be able to buy a concert ticket and watch it with my family.

20 Years and Counting

(©Ria Cervantes/

Falling in love is an easy thing but staying in love is a different matter. My family has high mortality in marriages and growing up, I became very conscious and wary of falling prey to relationships that would fizzle. My late and beloved uncle even told me that in our family, marriages don’t last so I had to find a man that I would stay in love with for the rest of my life. That stuck in my head…

I dated my ex-boyfriend (now my hubby hahaha) since 1991. We started as acquaintance, became friends, and bam, next thing I know it, we were in the courtship zone. Our relationship wasn’t always that rosy. Heck, we fought most of the time because we had our differences, and we still do up to this day. However, one way of having a peaceful life together is to accept each other’s differences. We did.

Our differences make our marriage exciting. Sometimes it’s fun and there are times that those differences can be very challenging. We try to make it work and respect each other. I guess, the foundation of our marriage is based on love,  respect, and trust for each other.

We’re not the typical husband and wife tandem. Our social life revolves in different polars. He likes stuff that I hate. I love things that he doesn’t understand. He’s the Mr. Congeniality and I am the snob. He loves parties, and I prefer to read books at home. He is the super outgoing and I am the homebody. He is not the romantic kind but I am the hopeless romantic. I am artsy and he’s very hands-on.  But we both love to TRAVEL! Yet, we still get along. We are the classic poster children of “Opposite Poles Attract.” It’s that mutual respect and understanding that we already developed being together that keeps the relationship going. It may not work for some but it works for us. We have agreed to disagree on our differences and then we move on.

Staying in love is not a walk in the park. It’s like walking on the moon, you don’t know what to expect. We don’t have a perfect marriage. At times, he drives me nuts and I want to smack him sometimes but at the end of the day, he’s the only one I want to be with. He makes me laugh most of the time. He gets my craziness and bears with me with a smile. He is patient with me even and knows when to ignore me. He lets me be. He may not be the perfect man nor the knight in shining armor I have cooked up in my head but he is my man.

Celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary is like an achievement that I can happily claim. It’s not easy to stay in love, make the marriage work, and still enjoy each other’s company (even if I know I bore him at times). But one thing I can say is, my hubby completes me.

Here’s to the next 20 and more years of togetherness!

I am glad to leave 2016 behind. A lot of painful stuff happened to my family last year and my faith and resolve had been tested as early as the first quarter of 2016. I hoped and prayed for improvement but my situation had gotten worse towards the last quarter of 2016. However, I am not a quitter. So, I am welcoming 2017 with open arms and heart because I could use a break right now.

I lost my mum and fur baby in a span of few days last February 2016. Then few weeks after my mum’s passing, my aunt passed away. And another aunt joined our Creator last November. There’s just too many painful stuff this heart of mine could handle. But I am hanging on.

My career has plateaued too. It was last year when I actually accepted (with open heart, mind, and soul) the fact that I would never get the promotion I deserved. I let that dream go and I had never felt so free doing so.

My blogging activities slowed down too during the 2nd half of 2016. I hope it will pick up this time. I haven’t been earning as much as I used to but I know there’s a silver lining. This happened before and my blogs always pick up the pace towards the 2nd quarter. And I pray it happens soon. I could use some extra right now to help with the savings.

Relationships weren’t as smooth as I wanted it. Family relations were tested and as much as most of the issues had been resolved, I hope the trust and love would remain.

I prayed for plenty of beautiful promises to unfold to me this 2017 because I know I deserve the good things. It’s time to move towards healing. Welcome 2017!

Gift Ideas for Kids Who Love Music

Music is a universal thing and it crosses beyond culture, race, and age. Music is a good way to help kids appreciate arts and expression. And if you have kids who are showing signs for love of music or are inclined to play some musical instruments, then start them early with some of the gift ideas geared for kids.


Drum Set

It may be a noisy gift to give but it does help a child develop appreciate with melody, rhythm, and arm and leg coordination. There are small drum kits geared for much younger kids too.



Is buying a piano still way out of your budget? Then settle for a keyboard for the meantime until you get enough money to buy your future pianist the real deal. There are plenty of keyboard to choose from.  You can even get your future prodigy a baby grand if you want and able but certainly, the market is teeming with good, quality keyboard to start with while they are young.

Egg shakers

These egg shakers are really unique gift to give kids who like making sounds and melody. It’s like a maracas but only in egg shape.

I find this gadget unique and very cute too. It is perfect for kids who love to make music and include synthesizing. It is made in Japan so I am not surprised why it looks so cute and like a musical note.

The Holiday

I know, I haven’t been very active in my blogging activity lately and there are personal reasons behind it. I just try my best to get my groove back but it’s not happening at the moment. I guess, I seriously need to take a vacation, to get away from the stuff that choke me, and just to recover from the losses.

It’s been a rollercoaster ride for me. I don’t know how long I will be in that ride but I know I will get out of it.  The holiday season is just making it worse, feelings wise. It’s a different holiday this time. Much as I push myself to be happy, and really be excited for the same holiday season that my mum loved, I just find it hard to do so. I feel very empty right now. I still need to go on a holiday and fly back home to be with my family there. Maybe, I need all the change of environment even for a short while; a time to see my parents’ resting places, and be with my family for support. I could use some tender hugs right now.

Well, I hope that when the year ends, I can finally let go and leave the pains behind. I don’t want to carry these heavy weight in my heart to 2017. My family deserves to see me happy. I deserve to be happy… I know my mum would understand that.
