My girlfriend, Gay, just arrived last saturday from her short vacation in Singapore. Last Christmas, she gave my twins(her inaanaks) Mammut chairs from IKEA. And now, she bought lots of IKEA stuff for my twins and me also. I'm so happy with these pasalubongs she gave us.



Thank you so much Gay! I owe you 1 big box of chocolate chip walnut cookies!!!


We spent our weekend at my parents house last week. My sister and her family were also there. The kids enjoyed their weekend because they were able to play with their cousins. My parents were also very happy to see their grandchildren.

We stayed inside an air-conditioned room all day because it was hot, hot, hot....forget the meralco bill. We can't stand the heat. It's SUMMER indeed!!!

Then my dad told the kids to wear their swimsuits and go outside(terrace area) and take a plunge.....their uncle Jay joined them inside the pool.....

Why the wedding ring be worn on the fourth finger?

This is cute. Try it out .

Why should the wedding ring be worn on the fourth finger?There is a beautiful and convincing explanation given by the Chinese.....

Thumb represents your Parents. Second (Index) finger represents your Siblings. Middle finger represents your-Self. Fourth (Ring) finger represents your Life Partner & the Last (Little) finger represents your children.

Firstly, open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers and holdthem together - back to back.

Secondly, open and hold the remaining three fingers and the thumb - tip to tip(As shown in the figure below):

Now, try to separate your thumbs (representing the parents)..., they will open, because your parents are not destined to live with you lifelong, and have to leave you sooner or later.

Please join your thumbs as before and separate your Index fingers(representing siblings)... ., they will also open, because your brothers and sisters will have their own families and will have to lead their own separate lives.

Now join the Index fingers and separate your Little fingers (representingyour children)... ., they will open too, because the children also will get married and settle down on their own some day.

Finally, join your Little fingers, and try to separate your Ring fingers(representing your spouse).You will be surprised to see that you just CANNOT....., because Husband &Wife have to remain together all their lives - through thick and thin!!
