Gems

I spend hours in front of you
Trying to understand
Your universal view
I want to trace your fingerprints
To know what makes you unique
I want to know your weakness
Let me know when to hold
I want to know your strength
And see your beauty
Sparkle like gems.

Pasalubong

After 5 months bumalik na ulit si mama dito sa Korea. Happy ang mga anak ko nang malaman nila na pupunta kami sa airport para sunduin ang lola nila.

Hindi na ako nagbayad ng extra baggage kaya up to 7kg lang ang pwedeng dalin ni mama. Pero kalahati ng bag nya pasalubong. Ito pala yung mga dala nya.

Choco Mucho. Laging nakikita ni Jihoon sa Youtube kaya nacurious sa lasa. Isang beses umiyak pa sya kasi may nakita ako sa Ebay Korea pero di ko binili, hindi kasi pwede paisa isa.

Cloud 9. Elementary days, isasave ko talaga yung 5 pesos na baon ko para makabili nito.

Choco Peanut Butter. Ito yung business ngayon ng pinsan ko kaya nagpabili ako kay mama. Maliit lang binili nya baka kasi masita sa airport. Yummy!!

Jollibee. Gusto ko talagang kumain nito pero hindi ko na sinabi kay mother. Pero nabasa ata ng kapatid ko ang nasa isip ko.

Meron pang jelly na pizza pero di ko napicturan dahil naubos na ng mga anak ko.

Sa dami ng pasalubong hindi ko alam kung kelan namin ito mauubos kaya sabi ko sa mga anak ko bigyan din nila yung mga kalaro nila.

Thank you kay mama at Jean at sa asawa nya si Shid at Kevin sa mga pasalubong. At kay papa sa binigay nyang damit para kay hubby.

Thanks for reading.

May you have a prosperous day further!^^

5 AM

Nagising ako ng 2:30 am pero hindi na ako makatulog.

Nag-meditate nalang ako nagbabakasakali na dumeretso ako sa tulog. Pero hindi na ko dinalaw ng antok.

Pinanood ko nalang yung latest video ni PewDiePie, pagkatapos nagbasa ako ng libro.

Tingin ako sa phone ko para icheck ang oras..5am na pala.

Isa sa goal ko sa buhay ang gumising ng 5am everyday. Pero lagi akong puyat dahil sa late na rin matulog ang anak kong bunso.

Nagpunta kagad ako ng veranda.

Dahil summer ngayon mahaba ang araw at maiksi ang gabi, kaya sa ganitong oras maliwanag na.

Maulap na langit, mataas na bundok, mga puno, malawak na bukid at maingay na tiktalaok ng manok. May iilan sasakyan palang sa kalsada; maagang papasok sa trabaho at ang ilan naman ay ngayon palang uuwe sa bahay.

Ganto pala ang feeling ng 5AM.

Night

The wind touches the curtain, and they are dancing.
Relaxing music playing while I’m writing.
The green and red light silhouette behind the glass window.
Beautiful night lights.
Sound of electric fan in summer nights.
The smell of grass and soil after rain.
Children are calmly sleeping.
And the girl is grateful for everything.

Bata

May 3 araw ng walang tigil ang ulan at may possibility na hangang next week pa ganto ang panahon.

Umaga palang pagkagising ng dalawa kong bunso sagutan na sila sa iyak. Kailangan ko maghanda ng umagahan para kay hubby at sa dalawa ko pang anak na aalis ng maaga.

Hindi na bago sakin ang ganitong sitwasyon; gyera tuwing umaga.

Pagkatapos ng iyak harutan naman. Kapag nasimulan ang iyak hindi mo madampihan ng tubig pero kapag nasa condition walang tigil ang tawa.

Open letter to my next-door neighbor.

It’s been a year since we became neighbor and yet I still don’t know your name; I only that you are the mother of Bomjin. I’m sorry if I can only do small talks every time we meet. I always know that you are a good person.

I haven’t entered your house, but from the glimpse outside I adore it: the all-white interior design and the large plant beside the main door. Beautiful.

I am at ease when your son and my kids play together. I am grateful for treating my kids like your own. Thank you for helping my kids to cross the street yesterday.

Thank you and I wish you well.

Summer

It’s 6 am and the sun is already up. Summer, daylight lasts longer and nighttime is shorter. What do I like about summer? I asked myself. Summer is my least favorite season. I couldn’t find the answer for 2 minutes.

And then I look outside, appreciating the beauty of the green mountain that I can only see during summer. I look at the sky, and it’s clear while the thin clouds are dancing. Nothing can beat the clear sky of summer.

I turn my attention to the crop fields. Their leaves are waving on me. I thank summer for these crops.

What do I like about summer? I asked myself again. I see the true beauty of nature in summer. The taste of cold water. Camping. Longer days. Watermelons. And Jiwoo’s birthday.

Beauty of Spring

I want to write a small post to appreciate the beauty of spring.

After the cold and crisp wind of winter and everything is bluish white. Here comes spring. Nature is showing its true color, from beautiful cherry blossoms to small and big mountains that turns green.

Who doesn’t love the beauty of spring?
