Kahit Ayaw Mo Na

Kahit Ayaw Mo Na by This Band has been playing since last year but I only get to appreciate its lyrics last week at Siglo when I heard it from Gelai of Acoustic Impression.

I must say, I like the melody a lot! And the lyrics speaks about crazy, unconditional love. Akong ako ito 😁!

I've been practicing this song for five days, unleashing the frustrated singer in me. 😁
Juacho, my youngest son, recorded it while I was trying to catch my breath.
Bawal pong pagtawanan ha, mamalasin din ang mamimintas! 😁

My critics verdict...

Juacho: Mom, you"ve got a nice voice. You should enrol in music school to learn more breathing techniques.
John: Babe, you've got the tone but not the timing.


Kahit Ayaw Mo Na
This Band
Kahit ikaw ay magalit
Sa'yo lang lalapit
Sa'yo lang aawit
Kahit na ikaw ay nagbago na
Iibigin pa rin kita
Kahit ayaw mo na
Tatakbo, tatalon
Isisigaw ang pangalan mo
Iisipin na lang panaginip ang lahat ng ito
O, bakit ba kailangan pang umalis?
Pakiusap lang na wag ka nang lumihis
Tayo'y mag usap, teka lang, ika'y huminto
'Wag mo kong iwan, aayusin natin 'to
Ang daling sabihin na ayaw mo na
Pero pinag-isipan mo ba?
Lapit nang lapit, ako'y lalapit
Layo nang layo, ba't ka lumalayo?
Labo nang labo, ika'y malabo
Malabo, tayo'y malabo
Bumalik, at muli ka ring aalis
Tatakbo ka ng mabilis
Yayakapin nang mahigpit
Ang hirap 'pag 'di mo alam ang iyong pupuntahan
Kung ako ba ay pagbibigyan
O nalilito lang kung saan
Tatakbo, tatalon
Isisigaw ang pangalan mo
Iisipin na…

Jay's Adobong Pusit

Jay and I met nine years ago. She used to belong to a PR company that invites bloggers to their clients' events. Although she 's been out of that company for years now, Jay and I continued our communication, thanks to Facebook!

Finally, we got to be together again when she visited me at home to teach me how to cook Adobong Pusit at Binawangang Pusit for Kwentong Kusina. Kwentong Kusina is my vlog series where I either visit my friends and peers in their kitchen for some homecooking or they visit me at my place.

Thanks so much Jay for the time, effort and love!💗

Blindfold Choco Drinks Taste Test

Julia and Juan have been begging me to do Blindfold Choco Drinks Taste Test. We were supposed to do this last week when we were in Tagaytay but we enjoyed relaxing so much so that we forgot to do it.

Finally we were able to do this Blindfold Choco Drinks Taste Test at home. We were surprised that Zest-O Choc-O tastes the best. I don't even know that Zest-O have a choco drink. I gre up with their juices only.

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post. My children have no intention of smearing any brand. They just want to know which tastes best so I, their beautiful mom, won't have a hard time choosing what choco drink to buy for them.

Joy Felizardo's Baby Shower

Joy Felizardo and I met in a Mommy-Breastfeeding Event in Quezon City Circle some nine years ago. As a natural friendly person, I kept on talking and asking her questions. Trying my best to win her attention, I felt that she's not interested with my incessant energy so I just stopped talking. She left the event early, saying she has another event to attend to. I was hoping to God she was telling the truth and that it was not because she got irritated by me.

The next day we met again in another event. She kind of loosen up a bit but still talking to me only when asked a question.

Fast forward to 2013, Joy and I have been close although we don't get to see each other much because we have different niche, hers is food blog while I'm into lifestyle blog. Joy proved to be a very kind soul. 

Fast forward  to 2018, she revealed to me that she's undergoing some medical attention, probably due to hormonal imbalance. All the while she was wrong, she was actually pregnant!

Babies are a blessing! I am so happy for her and Bhogz and the rest of their 4 children so when she asked me to be the host for  her Baby Shower, I immediately said YES! On top of that, I'm proud to say, I'll be one of the Ninangs too! Yahoo!
