No One




I just want you close
Where you can stay forever
You can be sure
That it will only get better

You and me together

Through the days and nights

I dont worry cause

Everythings gonna be alright

People keep talking

They can say what they like

But all I know is everything's gonna be alright
No one no one no one
Can get in the way of what I'm feeling

No one no one no one

Can get in the way of what I feel for you

You you

Can get in the way of what I feel for you
When the rain is pouring down
And my heart is hurting

You will always be around

This I know for certain

You and me together
Through the days and nights
I dont worry cause

Everythings gonna be alright

People keep talking

They can say what they like

But all I know is everything's gonna be alright
No one no one no one
Can get in the way of what I'm feeling
No one no one no one

Can get in the way of what I feel for you

You you

Can get in the way of what I feel for you
I know some people search the world
To find something like what we have

I know people will try
Try to divide Something so real
So till the end of time
Im telling you that
No one no one no one
Can get in the way of what I'm feeling

No one no one no one

Can get in the way of what I feel for you

ugok_kaayo:

Achie:
yeah. i'm officially sad.

ugok_kaayo:
same here

Achie: he's currently boarding.

Achie:
kakatawag lang.

Achie:
actually... mixed feelings ako. masayang malungkot. masaya... kasi after how many years, ok na kami... last two weeks before he left. happiest two weeks.

Achie:
kaso syempre, bitin yung happiness.

ugok_kaayo:
ah

Achie:
the kids... dedma.

Achie: parang wala lang.

Achie: sarap maging bata.

ugok_kaayo:
oo pero mag sisink in sa kanila yan

ugok_kaayo:
delayed lang mga yan

Achie:
actually, si anea, biglang naiyak sa car pauwi. pero the other two, dedma talaga.

Achie:
i was hoping Dale to show some kind of emotion.

ugok_kaayo:
eepekto din sa dalawa yan

ugok_kaayo:
si ted nga nagtatanong

ugok_kaayo:
bakit daw ako umaalis pa

ugok_kaayo:
bakit daw sya walang tatay

ugok_kaayo: hay

ugok_kaayo:
naiiyak ako ngayon

Achie:
wag ka ng malungkot... sandali lang ang panahon.

ugok_kaayo:
pero maghahanap din yan ng father figure

Achie:
makakauwi ka rin in time... you'll be with your family again.

I just wish that the same goes for me, Ronald, and the kids. We miss you already, Daduds.

when later becomes better

When Anea was just a baby and some of the kids I knew from my friends were growing, I'd be so envious at how they were talking so fluently in English. I'd marvel at their pronunciation and diction. I told myself my kids are going to be like these kids in the future.

True enough, they all did. Anea lost the consistent use of the language when she entered preparatory. She learned nicely in preschool. Dale gained it in special school and at home. Tony gained it because of Dale. Since Dale speaks and understands only English before, everyone was "obliged" to use it. We just realized our mistake when he entered Regular school.

But now, I'm pleased that Dale can understand more tagalog words. He can even try talking in Tagalog, but still, he's been experiencing difficulties, both with meaning and pronunciation. We studied Sibika today, and it took us a long time to get everything right.

Noli Me Tangere, he pronounces like "tangerine". And El Filibusterismo, as "bus" like what we ride on... and the "o" in the end is very-well pronounced. Super sleng, kumbaga. If you hear him say it, you might think it funny at first, but when he cannot pronounce it right after a number of tries, that's when you start to pity him.

He kept on saying Apolinio Manibi (Apolinario Mabini), and he just couldn't get it right. He started being annoyed and wanted to cry in frustration.

Until he just gave up and said he wanted to sleep coz he was so tired of studying. Of course, I let him sleep. We can always try again later.

Everything about Dale comes with perfect timing and consistency. I'm sure later, everything will be better.


The Tony Chronicles part 5



yes, this will never end.


Crunch time! Exams... exams... exams... I'm the busy mom with children sticking their notes out under my nose shouting "ask me questions, mom!" or "i-review mo nga ako, Ma." This is the time when I learn if their teachers are doing their jobs, my kids are really listening, or if we're paying thousands only to find out that my kids' future is in welding (big bucks there, too, from what i've heard).

Subject: Christian Living Education (CLE)

Me: "Hail Mary, Tony... Saulo mo na ba to?"

Tony: "Oo noh."

I believe him, 'coz we recite the Rosary at home almost every day. But I decided to ask him to recite it for me, just to be sure. And good thing I did coz what he said was totally hilarious, if not seriously blasphemous.

Tony:
"Hail Mary, full of grace... the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women
and blessed is the fruit of werewolf Jesus."

Oh. My. God.

Please, forgive my son, he does not know........ he does not know, period. =)

Remember...



take care of the one who loves you


because if you won't...



somebody else will.





someday, i will re-post this.
but with a happy picture.
