Another Year [16 Mar 2006|03:37am]
[ mood | complacent ]
[ music | Hang Up || Madonna ]

Yesterday I just turned 35. Some people are amazed at how comfortable I am about my age. What is in the age? What is in the truth. I was telling a 24 year old friend, that I am already at a point in my life wherein I have a stronger stomach. More adaptable to reality. What I can I do if this is what I have. It is not really cozing into my confort zone and not having anything goals or being lazy. It is just whatchamacallit, "being contented with what you have and you will have anything you want." And with God's mercy I can have the resources to improve whatever I have. Do I make sense?

Well, speaking of birthdays, when I woke up at 2:30 pm ny husband Dan was right by the bedside waking for me to wake. He dashed upstairs when he heard my cellphone alarm. And he kissed me and greeted me happy birthday and he says that there is a surprise waiting for me downstatirs. There was spaghetti, friend chicken, coleslaw, chocolate cake and ice cream. The cake had numerical candles 3 and 5. Yup am 35 already. I blew the candle and ate with my Dane and Bruce. Too bad had to go to work since am still on training. Yes, new job, new environment especially new salary 5 digits ;)

Rock and Roll Lives [26 Sep 2005|10:08am]
[ mood | hopeful ]
[ music | Honky Tonk Women [Rolling Stones] ]

Last Sunday while inserting some quality family time before I go to work I was lounging on our bed contemplating what to cook for lunch on a Sunday. My son placed on of his favorite VCD's, no not porn, we had a very good talk about it his porn watching days. And I thank all of my online journal community friends for all of your advises, I followed them all and all worked. Also, would like to thank offline friends for the advices. It is not being easy being a mother and with a litle help from my friends I get by.

Going back to my post, Bruce put one of his favorite movies on, School Of Rock (John Black and Joan Cusack). During the course of the movie my son never stopped strutting with his "air guitar" and acting like a rockstar. Then, I realized at that very moment. Rock and roll never died. It lives in my heart, a 34-year old woman and it also lives in the heart of my son born in hte year 2000. Rock and roll will never die.

Two of my most endeared rock and roll bands:

Remembering Fonggo [19 Sep 2005|10:59am]
[ mood | melancholy ]
[ music | Somewhere Over the Rainbow (Adam Sandler's version) ]

To all who are close to me, you know we have a Dalmatian named Fonggo. Well he died last Sunday. Though, it was not Bruce’s first dog. It was Hotdog and she was a mix breed of Dachshound and Japanese Spitz given by long time family friend of the Dacaimats, the Laher family. Though, not a pure breed, hotdog was a beautiful dog. And it is a dog that Bruce loved so much. Well, he loved Fonggo, too but not as much. Let me tell you the story why.

I can never forget the day I brought hotdog almost three years ago. Bruce was turning two then and I was about to start my new job at People Support. If I remember correctly, that was a Sunday. I came from Tita Pinky Laher's house and peronally handpicked hotdog for Bruce. She was a cute little puppy that I held in my arms and shielded her from the sun. I grew up hating dogs. And that day I really couldn't say that I was having fun bringing this dog home to my son. Of course, for the love of mama I made the sacrifice of carrying the smelly fuzz ball (because she still cant take a bath yet) all the way home. Home was about three long blocks from Tita Pinky's house. And finally, was home and yelled for Brusko from the garage. His yaya Net-Net came from the front door with Bruce tagging along. I presented the puppy to him, and his eyes, oh I couldn't forget my son's brightly lit and very small eyes, (his eyes becomes squinty, ala Bong Revilla when he smiles :)]and the his face and the hug he gave me, "Mami, wow doggie! thank you!!!" Although, like any mischievous child Bruce was on the playful and hurtful side to hotdog. But he loved her no questions asked. And hotdog loves him equally. Despite all the physical abuse she never ever tried to bite Bruce. Here is how I found out and was able to prove it. When Fonggo came to our family.

It was through our friend Long, a Pitbull breeder that we first met Fonggo. He got him from a hard up friend for Php 1,500 with papers. It is real cheap for a Dalmatian breed and Fonggo was even handsome than the 1001 Dalamtians. He was from Australia. Dan loved Fonggo at first sight. His fur, his spots and his affection. We later found out that Fonggo's former owners was a mother and son crack-addicts team. So, since his owners do not eat and sleep everyday because of crack addiction, he also did not eat and sleep and he was also maltreated ever since he was born. And finally, just for them to be able "score" some crack they sold Fonggo to our friend Long for that amount. Now, Fonggo was beginning to be a threat with the Pitbulls. Yeah, ironic isn't it? He bit one of Long's prized Pitbulls. It was time for Fonggo to go. So, after long negotiations Fonggo was sold to us for Php 1,000. Dan was so happy when he brought Fonggo home. Bruce was not so happy and punch him on the side. Fonggo is a loving and submisive dog. He craves for attention, love and pampering. So, whenever Bruce maltreats him he never become defensive. No, remember hotdog? Bruce's first dog? She was not that happy she would also try to pick a fight with Fonggo. And hotdog had an ally with Brusko. But Fonggo and Hotdog soon became friends. and the fights became playtime. Up until when we transfered to a small apartment. Well it was small compared toour first house. The dogs were messy in the house so I would ask Net-net Brusko's yaya to tie them both at the back of the kitchen. Then the freak accident happened. Since they always in a playful mood their leashes were tangled and Fonggo's leg came in tanggled with Hotdog's collar. It must have been painful for him while Hotdog was slowly choking. By instinct he was biting Hotdog's collar that also contained his neck or his jugular vein. I couldn't control the chaos and for the first time Fonggo was venemous to me--whom he used to be very scared. Hotdog was not giving up her life that easy she also fought with Fonggo but for her life as well. Slowly, I saw her life leave her tired body. And when the last breathe left her it was so sad that both dogs became loose from their entanglement. Fonggo suddenly came back to his old self and realized his best pal was killed, by himself. After the most unfortunate incident, Brusko was violent to Fonggo and for the very first time I saw my tot was so angry, I could still remember him say, “Murderer! You killed my dog!” with so much vengeance. For a few days that was all we could hear from Bruce and ever since then he was violent and indifferent to Fonggo up until the day he found him dead on our garage.


Christmas with Fonggo


We were still sleeping and Brusko was the first to get up that Sunday morning. He was going out of the house to go to sari-sari store in front of our house to get some breakfast when he couldn’t open our gate because a stiff Fonggo was blocking the gate. He went upstairs to our bedroom and woke us up and told his dad, “Fonggo, dadi nakaharang sa gate patay na di ako makalabas”. That was it. It was Dan who was emotional about it. When I ask him if he was sad that Fonggo is now in heaven, she just shrugs his shoulders and reply, “He is not my dog, bakit ako magiging sad. Si Hotdog sad ako nung pinatay siyia ni Fonggo.”

As for me, Fonggo was the first dog to teach me how to love and not hate dogs. He was protective, loving and always wanted to be fondled. I will never forget him. If there is really a heaven for dogs I wish you are there now and happy with no pain both physical and emotional. Goodbye, Fonggo.


One handsome dog is Fonggo

My son's first trophy [19 Aug 2005|10:20am]
[ mood | jubilant ]
[ music | One Moment in Time ~ WhitneyHouston ]

Last Saturday Brus and Dan went to our kumpare's (brusko's godfather) daughter's first birthday party at McDonald's. Of coourse mom couldn't go because she had to go to work on weekends. The following day Sunday morning Brusko was telling so many stories on how much he had fun at the party. His godfather )the father of the celebrant) of course spoilt him to death again (since he is the favorite godson) and allowing him to be a brat in the party and getaway with it. Well, he just beat up the daylights out of Grimace with the consent of his ninong. He joined lots of games and he won lots of prizes. He having the height advantage of most kids was able to win most of the games. Even at school, during their basketball shooting sessions where in they have to fall in line he was the tallest and is always at the last of the line. He is the tallest and the youngest in his class. I watched one of their PE classes where they played basketball, I gotta hand it him (and let a mohter brag, ok? :P) he is a shooter. All field goal attempts where successful. It is like whhenever he throws the ball going to the basket in any fashion it goes in. Go anak, basketball can send you to college for free. :P It is too early for me to dream of professional basketball and elevating the whole family from poverty. Hahaha I am laughing at my exaggeration. Anyway, I need to go back to my story.

One particular game in McDonald's my son won this prize )

Please excuse a very proud mom [20 Apr 2005|06:21pm]
[ mood | thankful ]

This morning we received a text message from Brusko's school directress. This is expected as I have expressed my need for financial assistance regarding Brusko's tuition next school year. She was requesting me to come drop by the school anytime today. I went asap as she might grant me a discount or an easier payment schedule. Pre-school tuition is soaring high every year. Good luck to future moms. ::sigh::

When I got there I was greeted by the caregiver and told me that I was expeceted by Teacher Mai (the school directress/owner). I went directly to her office, the last time I was there was when Brus was "na-opis" when he was stubborn in painting class when he demanded for another sheet of oslo paper with reasoning that his mom bought a lot and it is only right that he used everything for himself. Actually, I have observed that my son is a perfectionist, a Dragon trait. It all started when his painting got messed up for his standards. Because his teacher's standards says it's not messed up, but for his standards it is messed up. Anyway, he asked for a new sheet of oslo paper but his teacher did not provide him with one because his work was ok. Brus started to shout and tore his work saying "teacher, cant you see it is ugly. I made a mistake and I want to do it again!". His teacher said the magic words, "Go to the principal's office right now!". This is actually his second trip. The first one was when he defended me from a classmate, I wrote a post about it eons of posts away.

Anyway, here I was sitting in front of the school principal and she was smiling. I immediately narrated my purpose but she interrupted me and gave me an envelope. The letter goes...

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Dacaimat,

Thnak you for choosing to entrust your child's education to The Playroom Child Development Center. We evaluated your son's academic performance for the school year 2004-2005 and we believe that he is eligible to be promoted to Prep level from the Nursery level. His accelaration will entitle you to a 50% discount on tution fee...


And the rest was blurry since I was literraly giggling and shouting. I felt like I was watching that milk TV commercial "Promil kid skipped Kinder..." balh, blah, blah.

My son was accelerated! Yahoooo!!!!
