Becoming a #PlantMom šŸŒæ

I never thought I’d see the day I would get all giddy and heart eyes emoji over plants, but here I am.šŸƒ This came to me as a surprise because in the past, I never cared about plants. My mom is crazy over greens and growing up, I’d see her gardening in our yard, watering her plants, and regularly taking out the indoor ones so they could catch the sun. I never understood it until now.

It all started last summer when Rolly complained about the heat at our family hall, despite the big windows.☀️ We thought, how could we make this area a little cooler? Putting an AC unit is not an option because the family hall is open (the staircase leads to it). I don’t like a ceiling fan either because I’m scared it would fall off and the blades would cut into our bodies mala-Final Destination. Hehe. The idea of putting plants sparked when I went to my cousin’s house and noticed how it wasn’t as hot at her place. She said, 'madami kasi akong halaman'. Tadaaa!šŸ’š The rest is history.

A Decade and One

Dear Mahal, 

Eleven years ago, on 8-8-8, I said YES to being your girlfriend.❤️ We were young… I was 23 and you were 25. That time, we had only been going out for 3 months. And I remember wanting to say yes to you sooner (oo na, aaminin ko na), but I had to restrain myself because 888 was coming, and I wanted that date for our anniversary. Hehe.šŸ˜‚ That night, you arrived late and I had to wait for you for more than an hour (and waiting has always been my pet peeve)! I almost withdrew my plan of becoming your girlfriend, buti na lang talaga 888, so I tried very hard to manage my mood. Anyway, things went according to plan, and the rest, as they say, is history.
