Head banging day

I was trying to reach down and insert the usb drive at the back of my CPU when my cellphone rang. By nature, I could not stand the thought of the person waiting on the other line. So i hurriedly stood up and BANG! I hit my head on the corner of the cd rack made of welded steel, attached to my computer table. It literally rocked my world for a moment! Yet, I manage to answer my mobile phone only to find out, the person calling was the one who also banged his forehead on a ladder earlier that day.

Whatta day. It looked like a kid had just drawn a 2-inch line on my hairline with a red pentel pen. 3 days later, 'twas still sore. So I went to the ER, the doc found an open wound. He gave me an anti-tetanus shot + a week dose of antibiotics + anti-inflammatory drugs + ointment + an appointment to a general surgeon a week later. Wow, overkill!

Lesson learned... don't rush to answer a mobile phone... there's such a thing as caller id, i can always return the call, more so, if it's loaded with unlimited call and text. huhuhu

Ergo, don't expect immediate answer from me, from here on. :p

Bridal Shower

We threw a bridal shower for a friend over the weekend. The invite went like this...

We treat you for an overnight stay at
On May 13, 2007
Come in beach attire
Fun starts at 2pm
relax and enjoy our company… see yah!

The agenda was 2pm check-in, 5pm photoshoot, 7pm dinner, 8pm night swimming, 10pm shower party, then swim and lounge around the next day 'til check-out.

Our weekend getaway was not only meant to be a shower party but a despedida party as well since the bride-to-be is moving to Manila. It was a fairly wholesome affair because I was the game master for the night. Sorry folks, no macho dancer around. Our male friends won't be happy to see them around either. Nevertheless, with a little touch of "kinkyness" and an unexpectedly, playful bride-to-be, we all sure had a good laugh. I hope the couple that stayed on the adjacent room had a good night sleep when we were being boisterous.

Okay, I won't spill all the details. Most importantly, it was another fun-filled weekend.

Best wishes to her, congratulations to him! :)

Girl friends

I met my girl friends in 1st grade. We shared a lot of happy moments together growing up, i will always cherish our adventures and misadventures. However, life's circumstances brought us apart. They got married and priorities changed. Two of them moved to Manila, one in Bohol, while two of us remained in Cebu. But true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance.

As we mature, table topics have gone from books, relationships, party, fashion to marriage and motherhood. I may not have 1st hand experience over marriage and motherhood, but I felt, I have somehow experienced it through them.

Girl friend #1: She had to undergo emergency C-section since her unborn child seemed to be loosing his heartbeat. Now, her son is suffering from occasional convulsion, which is driving her maternal instincts crazy.

Girl friend #2: Her baby and a cyst were growing at the same time in her womb while her 2nd baby has an enlarged kidney.

Girl friend #3: She had too much morning sickness that caused laceration on the esophagus. She had to take a lot of medication including antibiotics. Now, her daughter is suffering from severe recurring UTI.

Girl friend #4: She waited for 4 years to get pregnant. She has done aggressive treatments, not to mention emotional roller coaster for false positive test results. Until finally, 6 months ago she conceived what we call her "multi-million" baby. I am so happy for her. But life can be so treacherous, a tumor is found in her brain few months later. It is still unknown if it is malignant. The hormones she took to get pregnant and maintain her pregnancy probably triggered the growth of the tumor, the doc said. She is scheduled for C-section on her 7th month (by the end of this month) and undergo brain surgery 2 months later.

This news brought me to tears yesterday. Just as I thought everything is doing perfectly well because all along, she has been putting up a brave front.

My heart goes to her, at this point, all I can offer for her(them) is my support and prayers because life can get so complicated.

Take care girl friends...
