It looks so nostalgic this photo isn't it?hehe.. This is me and my bestie's when I was in high school and until now. Our name are written on the photo so I don't need to tell you who's who and where am I. I'm proud to say that all of these lass are nurses already, oh no except Wena she's a computer teacher in a catholic church as well and me I'm happily married! Hope they'll be able to find their own destiny too and be as happy as me. Anyways, see this green and white medal we are wearing? We used to wear it every Friday as a member of COM (children of Mary), one of the religious group we have at school. I came from a catholic school you see, so that means you have to know all the prayer, pray the rosary, do the novena every Wednesday, attend mass every Sunday and the special mass during Lenten season before. I can't remember of the 4 or 5 prayers we used to pray before we start our class in the morning.hehe..Something like Act of Faith, love, contrition,hope. Do you recognise these sort of prayers? Haay high school life, so much fun it was. Those times when I didn't know anything but to study and make sure I made it to the top ten which I did for 4 years (weeh). I always dream about my high school life but it seems like it's always a disaster! Either I can't answer my teachers questions or I haven't done my home work..grrrr..Anyways, my batch mates and classmates I think are planning for a reunion sometime this year but obviously I can't attend. Just hope they'll enjoy it and just give me update chika with each and everyone and would be glad to see some photos as well!
Enjoy more about the past here in Nostalgia at Nostalgic Marveling hosted by mommy Rose.

Another CC week! Well, I'll go straight to the topic " What we want from each other". Hmmm..when it comes to my hunnybun's time and attention I am so demanding. That's what I really want from him most. He knows that ever since especially when I was in the Philippines, we used to set Saturdays as "Roxxy Time". Which meant he cannot commit to any appointments on that day cos that's our day, MY day. So he often missed his cricket practiced, pub nights with friends and some occasions (except family ones) before. He still does missed some now,hehe..I want me and him moment once in a while like on weekends.I really am a KSP (kulang sa pansin) when it comes to my hunnybun, maybe because I know bumebenta sa kanya ang pagka KSP ko.haha..If he plays in the computer kukulitin ko xa kasi I want a cuddle and if he spends too much time downstairs and I'm just alone upstairs nagagalit ako (di naman kaya ako selfish?hehe). I want his TLC when I'm sick, like last week when I had cold, he made my drinks (honey and lemon), put olbas oil on my back with massage, tap my back when I cough and prepare my meds. Most of all I always want him to listen to me when I talk, his sympathy when I feel homesick and one important thing that I want from him is to understand that I am forever committed to help my family as much as I can. So to top it all,I want him to stay the " James" I knew and fell in love with.
O well, as for my hunnybun I know what he wants from me. He said this to our marriage counsellor before our wedding. He wants me to organise him and his things (abah?!) which I love doing.. hehe. He wants me to lessen my sensitivity (which makes him crazy) and stop over reacting with some things (which I usually do to tease him),let him use the computer for bit longer (no!bleeh..), stop complaining that I am fat (cos I am not, he said..wehehe) and above all he wants me to stop my favourite torture to him, the "silent mode with tiger look".haha..No worries hunnybun, wifey is trying to act maturely now. You see I haven't done it all to you lately (wink!).lol..I've been working at it hunnybun, so spare me more patience which I know you never fail to give me. In 5 years I guess hunny I'll be able to do all of these. haha..I love you so much!

This is "Chio" our half Belgian breed pet dog back in the Philippines. It's me who gave her this name, got it from the Japanese movie "Memoirs of Geisha", one of my favourite movie.We took this photo the day my brother in law brought her home.So that means she's more than a year old now.We dressed her like a boy for we thought she was he.hehe.. She's so cuddly, bit loud especially when doggy guys come pass by my sister's house. That's all I can remember of her when I was there. And one thing I won't ever forget about her was that I always washed and clean her poo after I've finished my laundry. Eeww..
How about you?Any critters you want to share?Just visit Camera Critters Meme for more. Have fun blogging and blog walking! Blessed Sunday!

Good night! Thanks to all my followers, my blogger friends for always visiting my blog and take time to give a thoughtful thoughts for Roxxy..

Another day of sharing about marriage life, I love this although not much to share in this week's topic.Pwede bang in engagement life te?hehe.. Since hunnybun and I were just married for 2 months, not long to be 3 months though.lol...So never had the so called "hardest days of our marriage" yet. But as couple, since we were engaged I guess there were few as far as I can remember. Oh well, the hardest days of our lives as a couple was every time I take hunnybun to the airport going back here in England.Oh dear my whole world stopped turning as soon as bunny starts packing his suitcase on his 1st, 2nd and 3rd visits, worst was his 1st visit. I didn't know it would be that hard, after all I was just with him in 17days and it feels like I've known and been with him ever since I've known the world. Haay I love everyday we spent but it scared me as well knowing each day means another day closer of him going back here.We cried so much in the airport, it makes me smile when I think about it now cos it was like a teleserye, we were crying hugging each other in front of the entrance,everybody was looking at us but the hell I care!We even had a long kiss in front of everyone! (shuks!haha) And then I saw a Filipina taking her foreigner bf in the airport as well but she wasn't crying like I did. Oh how will I forget what my hunnybun said before he went inside the airport, " I had the best days of my life here, I love you so much! ". See, how will you without his presence then, days seemed to passed slowly by then. Until we decided to apply for my visa. My hunnybun wants me to meet his parents first so we applied for a tourist visa to be quicker. After 2 months my bunny came back again in the Philippines for a week only to go with me in my interview.But then God tested our patience, the result was delivered the night before hunnybun's flight going back here, I was denied! It was again tear-filled night, I did cried but hunnybun cried harder than I did.(toink! Sabi nya laki na gastos ko!haha..kidding!) Haay nabihag ko ng bonggang bongga ang heart ng Briton na to, I said. Pano kasi he cried more than I did, so I just stopped kasi di na makasingit ang iyak ko! (haist!toink!) Enough of the joke side, we faced life by strenghten each other and with our love. Dumating ang December he came back to the Philippines again for the 3rd time. I felt so guilty cos I was thinking my hunny worked so hard just to save it to send to me and for his plane tickets to visit me.God heard my plea he granted my fiancee visa. But it doesn't end there, I am not putting Filipino down but crab mentality and jealousy are always the bad side. Before I left our country sandamakmak ang paninira sa akin just to brainwash my bunny of marrying me and bringing me here. Bago nga pala ako umalis, my bunny built me a little concrete house which with my little creativity a lot of people liked it. Yong para may decent house lang kmi na uuwian bah. I didn't know such little house will cause chaos of jealousy to our neighbourhood (babaw noh?). Starting that my life was never at peace, maraming akusa which was really small minded to think yet it came to the point I had sleepless night cos my family was involved already and my Uncles are hunting those who were creating the rumours and gossip about me and then sending it to my hunnybun just like I have a kid, I'm a syota ng bayan,drunkard and me and my family is just after my husbands money. And the worst one was that I am not my father's daughter and is just a product of my mother's adultery! Oh dear this was the worst bcos they involved my mother, and I was feeling so weak and I tend to push my hunny away but he never left me, he said we will show those people they won't succeed. Haay it was the hardest days for us, I was emotionally, physically and mentally stressed and so was bunny. I even lose weight on those days due to those bitches!Hmmp! And bad things was that never enjoyed much of my last weeks back home with my family cos of the incident. But I know bunny and I will be facing a lot more,but we survived it before without each others presence, how much more that we are together =) ... I know life isn't always a bed of roses, but as long as I'm waking up each morning with the kiss and i love you of my hunnybun, hardest days will always be great in the end!
Be inspired and kilig with the different couples love story here in Couples Corner hosted by Ate Liz. Have a great night/day!

I'm sharing this post as Ruby Tuesday and My world Tuesday entry. As I've promised, this is the continuation of my post last week about The Bakewell Old House Museum which we visited on our honeymoon in Derbyshire. Now you'll get to know the rest of the old house museum characters during the Tudor period in Derbyshire, England.
|In 1777 Richard Arkwright, the founder of the factory system, built his third cotton mill at Bakewell and divided this house into 5 cottages for workers at the mill.|
|This is what the farmers used to wear on their wedding during Tudor period|
|This two buckets the lady carries in her shoulder was used to collect milk to make cheese during Tudor period|
|This is the equipment used in washing clothes during Tudor period|
|And what my hunny is holding is the machine used to dry the clothes|
|And this is the head mistress|
|And this is the most popular history, the discovery of Bakewell pudding. We bought one and was so yummy!|
There you go, that's a bit of history of English life during Tudor period. Hope you enjoy the tour! Back to Chatsworth House, what's inside it?That's my next entry all about. So please come and visit me again..Have a good day!

Haay I thought I'd be better today but instead my cold is getting worse. I didn't sleep well last night due to my headache and horrible sore throat which now turns into cough (sigh). Not really a good day, my expecting call hasn't ring yet.What a day! I'm still feeling ill, miserable, can't hardly breath and a bit worried with my mama as well. Dear Lord, give me strength to face all of these and I know it's for me, isn't it? I'll keep waiting. Please guide and keep my mam safe wherever she is now. And I pray that I'll feel better and be well soon and will sleep well tonight. To my blogger friends, I beg your pardon cos I may not be able to write any comment on your posts, visit your blog nor join the usual weekly memes this week whilst I'm ill (I'll try if I can), can't stay longer in the pc cos it's making me feel dizzy. I'll get back and catch up with you when I feel better.All I need is to drink plenty of water, lemisep, fruits, have a rest and my hunny's TLC.Have a great week!

Slowly, life seems to fall into place for us. Things are getting on as what we prayed and wanted it to be. Thanks to our one great God who is always there ever since hunny and I started our journey together. First in crossing our way and made us fell in love with each other, nourishing our relationship on those times that we are apart, being with us all through the visa application for us to be together, our wedding plans, our wedding day, starting our marriage life and a wonderful parents in law. Haay my blessings are countless, Thank you my Lord for everything.. And another blessing you gave us (don't wanna mention what at the moment though), I know I can do this and I promise that I'll give my best on this thing. We are planning to get our own house soon, so we are now starting to look for it. We are just currently living with my PIL, would be nice to have our own house soon (excited). That means I would be surely busy and I would certainly say I'm a certified wifey if so. haha.. I mean bcos I'll be managing our own house, budget, cook, do the gardening and in God's good time be a MUM!whew! but not at the moment.. Anyways I was looking online for a perspective house for us this afternoon. Our guidelines or preferences would be, 2-3 bedroom house, semi/detached, off road parking, decent size rooms, nice bathroom, decent size kitchen, not so much work to do int he house (decorations) and of course a nice, spacious garden and in a guide price of £120k-£140 and near to my potential work place. We've spotted 2 properties while we were looking this afternoon. This one's my choice and this one's my hunny's choice. I like mine cos it has nice kitchen and spacious garden. Hopefully we could find the right house for us that we could call home. Settle things and live a simple life together. Love to think of it..Oh I still have to organise my hunny's birthday party 2 weeks from now, any idea guys?Please feel free to give me advice..Cheers! Goodnight, have a nice week!

Tonight we had champagne for dinner, hunny bought it this afternoon because he said we have something to celebrate of. Yeah I guess we have but I guess not yet. haha..I don't know I'm just a bit silly but not quite convinced though that I have or we have to celebrate now unless I'll be able to confirm it on Monday. Haay, please Lord let it be the way I'm thinking it is. But I guess it it, wasn't it? Oh dear, bit agitated still. I'll keep praying..I'll tell you guys what it is when I confirmed it although I thought it is what it was and everybody thought it was.haaay, enough of this before you guys gets too confused and crazy thinking what it is and was. Goodnight...Have a Blessed Sunday!

Our Anniversary Countdown
Every night before I sleep, I never fail to thank God for the day I had. Whether it was a good or a bad day. And I know God was so pleased and happy about it, because HE decided to make my days perfect for the rest of my life....HE put my husband on it.
