Friday’s Feast has a new home: www.fridaysfeast.com. Love the new look! And isn’t the button cute too?
What are you proud of?
I am proud of my children. I am proud not only when they come home with high grades and end the school year with honors. But I am most proud when I see that they know how to share, show love and concern for one another, and show responsibility by doing what is right even when no one is watching them. (They think, though, that I have eyes at the back of my head! I tell them all moms have that super-power! 😀 )
What is the best thing youâ€™ve ever won as a prize?
The best thing so far is this blog! I won the anniversary contest of blogger Noemi. As a result, I won free domain name registration for the first year, and free webhosting forever! 😀 Isn’t that the best?
Name something you do that is a waste of time.
sometimesmany times I spend too many hours on the computer blogging, blog-hopping, surfing just wherever! My kids are complaining. My husband is complaining. I need to limit my time on blogosphere… Or at least, blog whenever they’re not around, teehee 😛 . That way I won’t be stealing time away from them anymore.
In what year of your life did you change the most?
It was probably in 1997, when I had my first child. Being a young first-time mom, and having just graduated from college, times were difficult. Thanks to the support of my wonderful family, and the tenacity of my husband, I (and my daughter) came out just fine. I’d like to believe that the life lessons I learned from that stage in my life are what helped me to become the better person I am now. (I am a better person now, believe it or not! 😛 )
Where is a place you consider to be very tranquil?
Photo of the sunrise from my secret spot exactly as I remember it.
(Taken from www.baguiocityonline.com)
Back in college, there was a spot in Camp John Hay where I would retreat to get away from it all, or to just give my day a fresh and beautiful start. It was on a mountain slope across the Fil-Am Friendship Garden (in front of what used to be the Main Club, but is now at the back of the Manor Hotel). On that spot is a rock where I can sit and enjoy the most magnificent sunrise view in Baguio. Too bad, this spot in John Hay is no longer accessible to the public as I believe the Friendship Garden (including, therefore, the mountain slopes and breathtaking views) is only for hotel guests to enjoy. 🙁 Just one of the many setbacks of the “development” and commercialization of Camp John Hay. Oh, the current one is far from the John Hay I grew up with. But these laments are for another post.
Join the feast!
