Behind a Daughter's strength is a love of a Mother

August 14, 2008 this was the date when I posted a blog about a friend who has Polycystic Ovaries. A friend who put all her strength to triumph the emotional, mental and physical battles she encountered on her great desire to conceive a child.
The medication per se was not easy since the medicine for her PCOS often triggered her other illness which is GERD yet she did her best to bear all the discomfort. Faith and prayers were her light whenever her path started to grow dim.

May 10, 2009 Mother’s Day, she was in the seashore with her hubby watching the moonlight glowing to the serene sea. She closed her eyes and whispered “Happy Mother’s Day Ma.” hoping her mom was around so she could hug and kiss her. Captivated by the view of the moonlight she took a picture, she knew her hand shook a bit while she took the picture but to her amazement the reflection formed a heart shape. She’s not a superstitious lady but still she wants to interpret it as an answer of her mother’s day greetings to her mom who already passed away 8 years ago.
With this, she gained more strength as she realized that though her parents are gone, somehow they let her feel that they know what she’s going through and that they trust her valiance in any given adversities.

Winter Nostalgia

Being in Japan for a year gave me an amazing experience of four seasons; which I do miss a lot. Living in a tropical country is like living in summer season for the whole year round. The average lowest temperature I guess is 26 C and it normally rises on the month of March to May up to 34C, we have some areas that have lower than 26C though. I know Baguio is the best place in the Philippines to cool down not freezing as winter.

And while I sweat a lot under the heat of the sun, my hubby keeps on sending me his pictures enjoying the snow.

Oh ! I do miss winter, so right now I’m just reminiscing my wonderful winter experience in Japan with these pics.

Eat All You Can GRAPES

Grape is one of my favorite fruits. Upon hearing that Yamanashi,Japan has this kind of “EAT ALL YOU CAN GRAPES” I didn’t miss the chance. ‘Twas September last year that I was captivated by the amazing grape farms along the road on the way to Kofu City (capital of Yamanashi). Looking the grapes alone had already given me a mouth-watering experience. From green, purple, to burgundy colors with oval and circle shapes; tiny, medium and big sizes “eat them all you can.” When I went there I didn’t eat lunch “this is how greedy I am when it comes to grapes” (lol). And when I said “eat all you can” it only cost me $18.00 without time limit. Oh! how I love to go back there to eat those juicy and very yummy grapes again.

When you plan to visit Japan between mid August and September,include Yamanashi as one of your destinations.
