The Farm House - Update

After a week, we came to visit our farm again. Actually, we usually spend our sunday afternoon there. Take a look at the progress of our farm house.

See the view from the house . . .

My daughter really enjoyed running around it and really enjoyed the fresh air there. See her pose for the day. Isn't she cute? (Never object! She's my daughter!)

We went home at around 9'oclock in the evening.
How I wish we can already spend the night here (sigh).

Yummy Veggies

While checking on the progress of our farm house, I also visited the vegetable nursery about 500 meters from the farm house and look what I saw . . .


Chinese celery

We commonly call this in the Philippines as kangkong

The tomatoes are starting to bear some of its fruits



What makes those vegetables different? We are using purely organic fertilizer which makes those looks, texture and taste different. One of the base that we use in our fertilizer is gano.

Freshly Harvested Sweet Bell Pepper & Lettuce

I pick some of those yummy veggies and made a salad for me and for my hubby.

We also planted some rarely grown fruit in the Philippines to which we also uses organic fertilizer, such as the following:


13 variety of Grape Vines

Fuji and Green Apple Trees

The Farm House

Our farm house is now under construction! Wohoo! I thought of documenting the progress of our farm. I took this picture yesterday, though, still a skeleton but its roofing is already done, see?


and another angle . . .




It has 3 rooms, made of wood and bamboo. I talked to my brother and he said that maybe at the end of the month it will be done. Meaning we can already spend our weekend here with my family. Away from the busy and polluted life in the city. So Ana hurry back home so that we can spend sometime here chatting the whole day! hahahahaha

My Weight

As a common problem to all moms, WEIGHT!

This is my interest, to lose weight. Ever since I gave birth, I really wanted to bring back my old weight of 50kg. Really a mother is very fulfilling, however, weight becomes a problem. I envy those mothers who are very sexy inspite of having 3-5 children. I wish I could stay as sexy as they are. Hay . . . . . . . . . . . .

My husband told me that I am still sexy (gosh is he blind! I have so much bulges around my body!). He usually comforted me by telling, the inner person that counts more and not merely the outer or physical appearance. Well, I believe him but then, can't help it, I want to wear sexy outfit. Anyone agrees with me? Toink!!!!!!

Well looking at my old pictures, I wish I could be in that size again.



See those pictures? The upper pictures were before I got pregnant and below is my present size. Do I look different now? Tell me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Singing - My passion

When I was 6 years old, I found singing to be so much fun. I remember the song that I am really fond of, The Greatest Love of All by Whitney Houston. I realized, singing was one of my passions however, I did not concentrate on such because I preferred to finish school.

I still have a passion for music and singing especially during videoke! Wooohoooo!

Though I was not able to really develop my talent, I am very thankful that God gave me such talent. Thankful that one way or the other, I was able to enjoy it by joining some choral contest in my high school and some school program. I do enjoy my singing until now but usually I perform it in the . . . BATHROOM! hahahahaha! I bet you do too!

See Her Grow

See how my baby had grown. I remember when I conceived her; I could not explain the feeling I had then. But fear had set aside instead, mother instinct and love for her set in. She is now 4 years old and I know I have still a long way to guide her, to mold her, and to love her for her to be a better person in the future.


I am really thankful that in my five years of being married, I was blessed to have a child and I am still hoping to have just one more, maybe a boy. . . preferably. Well, if it is a girl, still fine.


She used to be so fragile and so tiny and see her now she can already walk, run, write, jump and playing around, she can even add and subtract numbers on her own. I do hope my little girl will continue to grow healthy, strong and with so much love in her heart.

Our Farm

Last year, my husband and I decided to buy an agricultural land. What motivated us to buy such lot was because of my biological brother. Though, not an agriculturist, he's interest and passion was for agriculture, planting vegetables and fruits which are rarely found in the Philippines, such as strawberry, basil, lettuce, jujubi, grape vine, sweet bell pepper and salad tomatoes. Other commonly grown that he planted are banana trees, eggplant, lanzones, mangostene and cabbage. He often told me that he is an agronomist. Don't ask me what is that because . . . I don't know. I will research later. Toink! hehehehe. He even formulated his own fertilizer to which he called EM. EM is an organic and natural based fertilizer. We used it in our farm, meaning, our farm is free from commercial fertilizer, pesticide and herbicides. Its all natural and so healthy.
We usually go there and have our family picnic every Sunday in the afternoon after our congregational meeting. We usually pack fishes and meat to grill and chicken drumstick to fry for my daughter, my nephews and niece. We do have some fun going there plus we do bring our magic sing to sing out loud, hahahahaha!
Below are some of the picture taken in our farm :
The 100% organic tomatoes we harvest last month

My New Home 090108

Oh well! this is my new home. I just created it yesterday, the 1st of September 2008. It talks about my interest which includes my family, my hobby and all the things I love to do.

I will also include in this blog about our new home, our new farm house, that is still under construction. I will also post pictures, maybe next month when it is already fully constructed.

As for now I will start to tell my other blogger friends about this new home I created.
