Couple's Corner #3: We're InLove

posted by Rechie on ,


You will never see a person’s worth until you lost her/him. You will never realize how much you love the person until he/she is gone. Love is Sweeter the second time around.” These are the sentences that fit right to how we fully realized how much we love each other. You must be asking why, so here’s what happened.

Note: This is hard for us (hubby and I) to be telling almost everything here but I insisted because this is what this blog is for.

Rodliz’s Nest

Hubby (Gary) and I had a break-up when we personally met the first time due to conflicts in the relationship. I mean, we met on Sept. 02, 06 and had a break up on Sept. 10, 06. It was my entire fault and I took the blame for what happened. He did a great job in giving the fault back to me for I was really hurt with what he did ten times than the pain I’ve caused him but I couldn’t blame him for doing so. The greatest fault I did I guess was when I didn’t or actually when I forgot to tell hubby about my very first online boyfriend that I haven't met yet who, at the time I considered ex because we didn't have communication for almost a year. My ex and I have been chatting for two years before I met Gary so i considered the "ex" as "ex". But mother of all bad luck, the ex called saying he wanted to meet me while I was in Boracay with Gary after almost a year of not hearing from him. I just couldn't believe how I/we was/were tested above because after my ex called, Gary's ex also called him. For me it was not a big deal but I didn’t think it was a big deal to Gary for not telling him about my ex but oh well, it was! That’s when conflicts and my pains started. He started corresponding to the calls and text messages of his 32 year-old ex-gf from Cebu behind my back having a purpose of hurting me I guess. Well, he succeed. One day, I read a text massage from the ex-gf saying she will be in Boracay the next day. I was like “wow” what a big slap on my face. I felt so stupid for being fooled. I was darn innocent at 19 and I felt I was played.

We both were aware how much we loved each other even by talking online and on the phone. We even loved each other more when we personally met but I guess the foundation of our love was not strong enough that’s why it was easily torn down. Since I was a little immature, I didn’t able to handle the conflicts with my husband. I left Boracay and him and flew back to Manila to avoid more conflicts of meeting his ex-gf. God, there were lots of sleepless nights after that. I started having remorsement for not fighting for us. There were lots of tears and pains to endure. I cried everytime I get the chance when family’s not around. I thought it was the end of the world thinking I couldn’t see him no more but I was wrong because he asked me to take him to the airport. Of course, he have to, he left his plane ticket to me. Plain stupid, isn’t he? I was excited seeing him again but I know there was no way for us to be back together and I had no plan to accept him back either. I do have my pride. I was surprised though why he held my hand tight the whole trip to the airport and kissed me before he got out of the taxi. It was weird but I liked it.

Life went on. After 3 months of having no communication with him I was able to put myself back together. Life was back to normal not until I received an instant message from him on yahoo saying “I feel that you are pregnant with my baby.” It was too late. I had an abortion a week before I read the message. That’s how we started contacting each other again. He requested me to go back to my hometown (Manukan, somewhere in Mindanao). I granted him that. When he arrived for the first time in Mindanao to meet my parents, we stopped first at our hotel room and there he was, down on his knees, teary eyes uttering words of forgiveness, of how much he cried when he realized his lost, of how much he prayed God to give me back to him. He asked for my love again and I granted him that too. I blamed it to my heart for I do love him dearly. He just failed to realize how much that love was when we first met. We then started all over gain, but the love for each other still remained because we've been in loved and will always be.

1. The crickets sing, chirpy chirp. The chirp (which only male crickets can do) is generated by raising the left hind leg to a 45-degree angle and rubbing it against the edge of the right hind leg, which has a thick scraper. [Little known fact from]

2. Be safe wherever you are.

3. I want to get far away from the household chores.

4. I can't believe it; this was a dream.

5. But as for me how impossible our dreams may be as long as we do our best we will be able to reach it.

6. My mother's womb is where I came from.

Couple's Corner #2: The Day/Night We Met

posted by Rechie on


It is time for couples to come together again at Couple's Corner. I am sorry sis Liz for the delay of my post. I was not able to do my post for this meme earlier because I accompanied my sister to the doctor for her eye checkup. I told hubby about our topic today though and asked him to do his part in writing about his thoughts about our first meeting. I simply don't like speaking for him. Besides, it is nice that everything would come out from his heart. Anway, today we will be talking about how we met our husbands. The first meeting with my husband was something planned but unplanned. I mean, I don’t know, it’s hard to explain. Anyway, here is how I am going to explain it.

Rodliz’s Nest
This is how we met.....

After almost four months of talking online and over the phone, I finally met my husband on September 2, 2006 around 9:00 p.m. something. I never really expected he was coming. I mean, it’s not too easy for me to believe on something unless it is really happening. So, when he called me saying he was at the airport in Manila on September 02, 06 at 5:00 p.m., I was like “is he joking or something”? The phone he was using to call was Philippines number so I thought he was really there. He told me that he was waiting for hours already hoping to see me picking him up at the airport. It was also convenient because I was in Manila staying at one of my aunts.

Since I was shock knowing it was true, I told him to just go ahead and wait for me at the hotel room we picked online. Yeah, he asked me to help him out with picking a nice hotel to stay and basing on the pictures he showed me online I chose a little cozy and of course comfy hotel. So there he went to the hotel and waited for me until 9:00. Yes, I showed up at 9 something in the evening because I was really hesitant to come and see him. I was nervous and shy and excited at the same time for our first meeting. I was wondering how will I talk to him, how will I move and act in from of him. There were lots of questions in my head like “is he approachable?”, “is he a good person?”, “is he picky?”, “will I be safe?”, and “will he ever like me” or "will he run upon seeing me"? So, I finally made up my mind and decided to meet him although I knew it was not ok for my aunts especially my grandma to go out the house at night.

When I arrived, I recognized him sitting at the steps outside the hotel and Wow, he was young and very manly with broad shoulders, very muscular, army cut and so handsome and well-groomed. I’ve seen his photos on the internet but seeing him personally was really breath taking. I never expected seeing as handsome as him and with a smile on his lips, who could not fall in love with this man? I was darn nervous and sweaty. I could feel my sweats dripping down from my armpit, no kidding. After that, we went up to the hotel room and started introducing ourselves over our foods and few bottles of San Miguel beer. I got all my questions answered, he easily got me at eased with him. He is a good man, I sensed it the way he uses his words. He is a respectable person, a husband material. I sensed he was nervous too and shaking and I also knew that he was trying not to be by opening a conversation to talk about. It was really nice sharing stories with him. Next to that, we started kissing and hugging each other. So yes, I slept at his hotel that night and the next morning we went together to see my aunts. Woot!

Hubby's thoughts about our first meeting…
(Hubby wrote this while I was taking a nap this afternoon.)

Wow, the day I finally met Chie, I was really excited
knowing I was going to finally met her after several months of talking on messenger as well as talking on the phone with her. The day I landed in Manila I was really nervous, for she was to meet me at the airport there. LOL! Well she wasn't their waiting for me as planned (she thought I wasn't really coming). So I called her and told her I was here and I could tell she was freaking because I really did come after all. So I waited for her at the hotel she helped me pick out. It was really a nice room, almost like a studio apartment, kitchen and all.

So I spent the next several hours waiting for her in the room, which made it worse just waiting. Heck, after all she was supposed to have been waiting on me, lol. So when she called me and said she was near I waited for her outside the hotel, I was really nervous now, like palm sweaty nervous at that. I already knew she was beautiful and had a nice body from the pictures we shared. However seeing someone in person for the first time with the natural beauty as hers made it more nerve racking for me. I mean she was what a guy dreams of, but with a heart of gold and the will to learn.

Now she had also warned me before that she was small, but most Filipino’s are so it wasn't going to bother me. When she got out of the cab I was like WOW, not only was she small but dam sexy and well proportioned and very beautiful. I mean nice round butt and over average boobs for her height. However the thing I remember the most was her eyes and the way it intensified her beauty. She was being so shy and nervous, but yet still looking at me. As I took her in my arms and hugged and kissed her, it was from that day with our eyes still clued to each other I knew she was going to be my wife.

Sister's Week Tag

posted by Rechie on


I got this tag from Kittykat of Amazingly Me. This is a very lovely tag. The messages in this tag can tell. It reminds me of something I have that sometimes I don't appreciate and still long on something I can't and I don't have. It reminds me of the people who love me yet they became invisible in my eyes at times though I know they are and will always be at my side. It reminds me of everything that I have taken for granted and treated without value. To Kat, thanks a bunch for including me in this tag. I do appreciate your friendship.

Note: this tag is also shared with me by Shy and Jacky

Be the kind of women that when your feet hit the floor each morning,
The devil says "Oh Crap, She's Up."
Sister, life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right.
Love the ones who don't just because you can.
Believe in everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Kiss slowly. Forgive quickly.
God never said life would be easy.
He just promise it would be worth it.
Today is sister's day.
To the cool women that have touched my life.
this is for you.....LOVE U!!!

Tag all your sisters, mothers, daughters, aunts, girlfriends,
Including me if I am like one. If you get tag back seven times, you are loved.
Happy sister's day! LOVE YA SISTA!!!
Girlfriend and sisters WEEK.

My Life's Readings for Today

posted by Rechie on


I just feel like sharing this with you pals. I am quite bored here after surfing all the web addresses I need to surf. I haven't slept yet since last night. It seems like I am having insomnia attack again and the coke is not helping at all. So ok, here is my life readings for today.
Daily Horoscope [Capricorn]
Apparently a feeling of urgency fills the air later in the day, Capricorn, as an unexpected or maybe unknown problem arises and upsets everyone. You will have to make an adjustment of some sort as the result of whatever drama ensues, and its possible that there may be a break in communication with someone, or that something needs to be done about telephone or internet services. If someone is trying to get you involved in a hasty or ill-conceived plan of theirs, don't worry, it will fall apart before it can be put into action, just as you predicted.

My Love Horoscope
An air of independence is on your mind today, Capricorn, and this may lead to some changes in your romantic affairs. You are feeling like a change is in order, and are finding a need for freedom today. This will not come in the way of major relationship or romantic changes, but you may simply need some freedom from your current day to day regime of romance. You may have an interest in trying new and different things, or simply mixing up the routine a little bit. Your thoughts are intense and penetrating right now, and you will become passionate about these ideas. When you are given energy this intense, the universe is signaling a time for change. Use it wisely today, and you will find success on the romantic front in a very surprising way.

My Fortune Cookie
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Lao Tzu
I got this daily readings by the way at one of the applications in facebook. I'll see if this unknown problem will really arise today. Lol! Have a great Tuesday to you all!

I have lots of absences now in photo hunting. I hadn't been in front my computer every Saturday. I am supposedly still at my parents' tonight but I missed my husband so I went back home just 5 hours ago. Anyway, today's Photohunt theme is sports. I have here a photo of my husband with his football teammates and their opponents (the Filipino kids) in full action. Lol. That's my husband right there in his sky blue football uniform aiming for a goal. He actually did a goal but the score was 4 - 9 in favor of the kids' team.

Love Is Sweeter The Second Time Around

posted by Rechie on


Love is sweeter the second time around. That was the line I repeatedly heard from the host at the wedding venue last week. That line was for the newlyweds. They are both widowers at their late 40s. The bride is my mother’s god sister. Actually, we never expected that we will be invited. I mean my husband and me. Our family is close to theirs so I knew my parents will be one of the recipients of the invitation cards. The wedding was a simple one yet it was the solemnity and the purity of love that counts. It was more on family gathering with few selected friends.

The story of the newlyweds captured my interest. They were actually high school sweethearts. When they both graduated, they studied in different colleges that caused their part ways until each of them got married. After 30 years, they met again by accident. They were then both widows. The withered flowers of love that were dwelling in their hearts bloom again after 30 years. They reminisced back the love they felt until they came up of the decision of getting married. Oh, love really moves in mysterious ways.

Another Typhoon That Is Predicted To Hit Philippines Today

posted by Rechie on


Hello brothers and sisters here in blog land! I would like to say sorry for not being able to blog hop to your blogs today. Hubby and I was invited to attend a wedding today and when we get home I was so darn exhausted that I went straight to bed. Just an hour ago I got up and went to check on the storm tracker map and saw the storm getting real close to the Philippines. This storm is actually predicted to hit Philippines today. Check on the map below.

See the map in a live action here.

I really do hope that this storm is not as bad as the storm we have encountered recently. This can be worst, this can be not. So please let us all pray for our safety. Prepare everything you'll be needed during this storm. Prepare the safety measures for you and your family's safety. That's all we can do. We cannot stop the storm!
