Friends are Treasures


source


     Throughout our lives we meet different kinds of people. Some are what we call cliche friends; others, friends whom we could really count on , no matter what happens. I have my high school barkada, whom until now we still keep in touch.

my high school BFFs (Best Friends Forever)
     
     I have my college friends and thank you to Facebook, we are all still in touch. Since I got married, I have met friends, who turned out to be good friends of mine too, because my husband introduced them to me. They treated me as one of them. 

these ladies are my
friends introduced by my
hubby, Francis.

     I have my mommy friends too. These are my friends because our kids are classmates since Junior kindergarten here at LCC Silvercrest.




the mommies and grandmoms
who are my friends because
our kids are classmates.


   And I have found a new friend whom I became close too because of the social media, TWITTER. Yup. One could make good friends via social media. And through this that I have met and known Chaye. She was introduced to me by Marife (the sexy momma, my term of endearment to her). Who would have known that because of twitter, a friendshop or barkada was formed. Our barkada includes Chaye, Marife, Rachel and me. 

     And last January 9, 2014 we had a post Christmas get together at Starbucks here in Lipa. Since there is no one to look after my youngest, she came with me. It was a happy, super enjoyable afternoon. We talked anything, as in anything under the sun. Up to the point already that I don't know what topic we're talking about. Hahaha!

our love of Yosi Samra.
(hehehe)
     One can never have too many friends in their lifetime. I am so blessed that I have met these wonderful and beautiful ladies, have formed a different kind of bond and friendship to each group and individuals. I know there are the people whom I could really count on, no matter what.

     Thank you ladies for being so nice to me. Accepting me for who and what I am. Cheers to GREAT FRIENDSHIPS.

Yosi Samra: My First Pair

     Ever since I saw a pair of Yosi Samra in Instagram worn by some of the mommy bloggers I follow, I wanted to own even just one pair. I am not the high-heeled type of girl, even when I was single. Though I appreciate any high heel shoes I see. It's just that I am not comfortable wearing them. I am a sneakers and flat shoes kind of girl/mom. So far the love of flat shoes, Yosi Samra is one of my "dream" flat shoes. So when hubby gave me the go signal to buy one, I got so excited that I just can't hide it (huh?! did I just sing? hahaha!)

   So last November 23, 2013 while I was with my family, I went off to Yosi Samra store at the new wing of Alabang Town Center, also known as ATC for us from the South. To be honest, I can't choose, it was difficult. The first 3 types I liked was out of stock for my size, imagine how frustrated I was. Until I saw this...

The flat shoes I liked.

     I asked if they have it in my size (7) and finally they have it. I can't contain that big smile on my face. My brothers who were all teasing me to wear it already. And I yes I gave in. Ako na ang excited. Hahaha!
I am wearing it already here.
(hahaha!)

     I tell you, it is very comfortable. I love the fact that this flat/ballet shoes is foldable. you cold just pack this cutie in your bag. And when you're tired from wearing your heels, you could just pull it out from you bag. 

here are my Yosi Samra pair,
placed inside the plastic
 
here is the pouch where you could
put the flat shoes then
just placed it inside your bag.



     And if you're travelling somewhere and you want to bring this along, it is so easy to pack because it will not occupy too much space. This is one kind of flats/ballet shoes that I am willing to save up and buy another pair.

Poems About Love



     Happy Valentine's Day my dear readers. Today will be a different Valentine's for me and my girls. It will be the very first time that we will celebrate it without Francis, hubby and tatay to girls. Although he is not around, I don't want this day to go on without giving something to the girls. To my older girls, I gave each of them a red balloon with 3 pieces of Ferro Rocher. To my youngest, though she is not fond of eating chocolates, I bought her a red balloon too. As for me, I bought myself some chocos, never mind the calories. Hahaha! 

    In time for this day, one of the books that I really like (and worth buying) is the book entitled LOVE & MISADVENTURE by Lang Leav. When I saw the ratings of this book via GoodReads, I decided to buy a copy and see what it is really all about. It is a book consist of poems divided into 3 parts namely:
 
               - MISADVENTURE

               - THE CIRCUS OF SORROWS

               - LOVE


the book
(got this from my Instagram)


     In every poem that you will be reading, for sure you will be able to relate. Love of what happened in the past, of what is going on right now and what is your feeling as well. It just took me an hour and a half to finish this book. Even my eldest daughter loved this one. This is one book I could really recommend to you. Let me share with you my dear readers, some of the poems/lines from this book. 

"Love is a game
of tic-tac-toe,
constantly waiting,
for the next X or O."


"Love is good,
it is never bad-
but it will drive you mad!
When it is given to you,
in dribs and drabs."


CLOSURE
"Like time suspended,
a wound unmended-
you and I.
We had no ending,
no said good-bye.
For all my life, 
I'll wondery why."


"She thanked him for his gift of music
and poetry but above all else -  for showing
her sadness because she had known
neither of these things before him.
But it was now time for her to go away - 
to find someone who could show her
what happiness was."


LOVE LETTERS
"Every letter
that she types,
every keystroke
that she strikes - 
To spell your name
again and again -
is all she ever wants to write"

     These are just few of my favorite lines or poems from the said book. For a change, why not give a gift of book to someone today. 


     Happy Valentine's Day!
