Meeting An Old Friend

I was talking to a former officemate friend whom I saw recently in the mall while I was looking for a nice pair of shoes for hubby. We were both surprised at our own looks now; we’ve last seen each other when we were still singles, the time when we’re both thin. Now we’ve both gained pounds, she gained 30 and I gained 35 lbs. weighing only 96 lbs. when I started employment in a consultancy firm. Anyway we’re both laughing as we recalled our good times together and reminisced on some unforgettable and happy moments. She has only one child and smiled at me when I told her I have three that at least compensate me for gaining pounds lol!

As we were talking about our families, work and many things about us we were sharing our plans on how we can possibly go back to our desired weight. We were discussing about my diet plan and hers when she asked me if I want to use the best diet pill that she saw on the net. She wants to try it but having some second thoughts on it. I’ve told her to ask her doctor about it so she’ll know the effects of that diet pill. As we both have a busy schedule we promised to call each other and plan another meeting on our convenient times.


Crisna and Lawrence Wedding

Lawrence and Crisna

This is a late post of my niece’ wedding last Dec. 30, 2008. Guess was too busy with the holiday season that it was only now that I found the time to blog this.

Crisna was the eldest daughter of my first cousin Kuya Audy. His mother, sister of my father died after she gave birth to Kuya Audy and my dad and auntie who were both single then took care of my cousin and grew up with us. He’s like a big brother to us especially when my dad suffered stroke when I was in my secondary school. When he got married he built his house inside the clan’s compound making his wife and kids got closer to us.

It’s his first time to see a child of his own get married so I know he’s a bit nervous and even if no one would drive us to the overlooking reception site we made it a point to attend the reception prepared for Crisna and Lawrence. We just hired a taxi going there and though it took us three cabs one driver finally agreed to drive us to Marabella Palace Resort.

It was a cozy and nice resort with wonderful overlooking view of the towns beside Antipolo and metropolis. My kids enjoyed the site and made me took photos of them. I had fun also having some shots of the sky especially when the sun sets down. The wedding turned to a reunion also as we came to see our cousin Adette who also grew up with us and Kuya Audy as she’s the daughter of my Auntie who took care of Kuya Audy. We lost communication for some years now and she’s amazed at how fast my kids grow up. Of course she found Josh very nice and bibo kid also!


Diet Preferences

After all the sumptuous dinner at holiday parties and plenty of get together reunion I gained pounds very fast. It was hard going back to my after six diet which I did last November and early December. I’m trying again now on an every other day schedule and I think that’s good for a start. Maybe next month I can do it everyday or six days a week with Sunday as a holiday for me lol!

It’s one of the best recommended diet for me because at nighttime work and household chores are minimal so I don’t need too much food. I suggested this to my cousin whose a lot bigger than me but she told she’ll be trying diet pills for a quick and easy losing up of unwanted pounds. I think she’s right and for me people really have different preferences.
