Mommy Moments: Name Game

mommy moments


This Friday's Mommy Moment's theme is NAME GAME. It would be about our kids and the meaning of their names. I love this theme as I have my children's name especially prepared even before they were born. I am so particular when it comes to naming my kids. I love names which speaks of depth. Names with special meanings that I hopefully wanted to be impressed and expressed by my children. So here with go.

Let's begin with my Eldest to the Youngest:


This is Kuya , the eldest. Name is ALJODON DAVID. I named him such as I love the meanings of these names.

Aljodon- its meaning is "old one, elder" David derived from Hebrew דוד (dvd) meaning "beloved".
The Whole Name: The Elder Beloved.. The eldest beloved One

Now, is Cocong, the second son which name is AL'JERED NICOLAS. The name is well thought of me also.

Al'jered- From the Hebrew name יָרֶד (Yared) or יֶרֶד (Yered) meaning "descent".
Nicolas- meaning is "victorious people".
The whole name: Descendant of the victorious People..
My youngest, my only daughter Bebay, her real name is ALIKAH ARIENH.

Alikah -meaning is "noble, exalted nature".
Arienh- Means "most holy"
The whole Name: Noble, Exalted Nature and descendant of the Most Holy One
And now, I'm gonna have a new baby. I am already thinking of names for him too.

Here are the names that I've been looking at:

Lael Joseph - meaning: Lael- belonging to God; Joseph- May Jehovah add/give increase.

Lysander Jadrien
meaning: Lysander- One who Brings Liberty; Jadrien- Blend of Jay, Jade and Adrien

Lois Jedaiel - meaning: Lois- better; Jedaiel-
knowledge, of God
It's really wise to give a thought to the meanings of our names. My name's meaning is even beautiful too. How about you? What are the meanings of your kids' names. Please share with us here at Mommy MOments.

Friday Photo Flashback No. 5

Friday Photo Flashback


Friday Photo Flashback again. It is so wonderful that Alicia had started this meme as it is so great to share treasured memories we hold dear from the past. Hit on the banner above if you want to join too and be sure to sign at the Mclinky at Alicia's site so we could comment and visit your posts too.
First School Photo
This photo is very memorable as this was the first school photo of my sons (first day of school) when they first got their formal education. My eldest was only 4 year old in this and my second son was 3 year old smarty baby. I hold it dear as I remembered shedding tears of loneliness when I saw this one, as I was not personally there to witness this important day of their childhood as I was miles away from home.

It's amazing how time passes by. My boys now are 10 and 9 years old growing children in the Lord.

The Letter


My best friend Emy and I chatted just a while ago about her love life in the UK. I'm always worried with her as I truly wish that she is gonna be fine and will find her one true love and she will be finally home into a man's heart.




Love can be so tricky most of the times, that my best friend is always lost and deranged in the dark for every game that men could play on her. She've been hurt a lot of times before that compelled her to be so uncertain about men who express their emotions on her. She met a lot of men before and every time she meets one, I would always say, "Myat hope he is the one".. But too bad, she would replied, " Naah, if I see that I won't have a future with him, then I would cut it out".. Huh! Truly the word "trust" is so illusive with her. She doesn't give trust right away resulting to short-lived relationships in the near past. Who could blame her? I couldn't for one as I just simply know what she had been through. Emy is just so vulnerable that when she sensed that she has no future with that certain man and the feelings shown to her are just too shallow to make it worth keeping, she would just let it go away.

Lately, she cut a relationship with a certain man from where she is on the same ground I have mentioned above. Only for that man to realize that she was one of a kind and hard to let her go. I am quoting you the letter of that person for her, as I could feel the surging emotions word from word.

Morning and hope all is well with you Em,

There is no need for you to reply to this.


I remember our first telephone conversation, there was determination in your voice.

I remember coming to see you for the first time, on that cold winters day. We walked up and down the high street after i collected you from the home. That was of course after your friends made sure i was not a murderer....


As we walked on that freezing day, you wearing a skimpy jacket, look to be freezing to death. We held hands at times and your little fingers were like ice sticks. Even then you were stressing that you were ok, it was clear to see you were cold. I guess you were just happy to be here.


At that time you were new to the country and a little lost...
I also remember the time we went for dinner, it was clear you had things on your mind and was not comfortable.

I remember coming to see you after my brothers party, late in the night, in fact I think it was early hours of the following day. You got drunk, you got naked and then overpowered me, i remember it very clearly, a sight of beauty.

I remember you coming down the day the weather was very bad and the trains were messed up, you took the long route but you came....yes i remember.


Oh, i remember lots more.


Now, i think about you every day and several time daily, despite the fact i am trying not to.
I think it will be a long time before the days will go by without me thinking about you, or when i can think about you without the attached emotions.

It’s pretty clear that you have moved on now. It even seems you take objections to me sending repeated text, even for clarification.. I'm sorry, i don’t mean to have a go. Maybe i just misunderstood again....


You have come so far.


The sad thing is, the man is too late. Emy has already found someone who could make her complete and she is finally home in that lucky man's heart..

A Great Timepiece for Him

Hubby told me this morning that his watch isn't working. He had it fixed last night at the watch service service, had the battery replaced and paid good amount out of it but only to know this morning the ticking stopped.

I think it's time to give a present and best present for him would be a watch of course. I've been browsing here for top rated timepieces and was fascinated with www.bestoftime.com men's collection. They got an awesome genuine like-new and pre-owned Rolex watches with great discounts as they are an independent dealer. I browsed their items and really dreamed to buy my husband one from those 100% genuine and authentic piece. www.bestoftime.com anyway is proven for their commitment to excellence and satisfaction.

And hey, honestly their Rolex watches are absolutely lowest in price compared to other dealers. They are simply the best of time. I like this timepiece on the left most. Hubby loves this kind of style. My only problem is I don't know if will I ever have the money in my pocket to buy this one. Should I ever have, I would definitely buy this one.

Missing these Boys all the Time

I was happy to see my boys on their school uniform yesterday. I miss them a lot as they are in the Province with mama. We get to see each other only during vacations. My daughter misses them too all the time. She keeps on saying, " Mama , I miss my kuyas".. Poor baby, Mama misses them too.

By the way, Aljodon is now 10 years old and Al'jered is 9. Time flies so quickly. When I left Aloran to work here in the city , they were only 4 and 3 years young. Now they are both in Level 4 in Elementary. Though they are far, I know the Lord takes good care of them by giving them my mama who is always by their side.

Look at them:


Aljodon (taller) and Al'jred
Al'jered (Cocong) engrossed with the pspKuya is coaching

To my two boys: Though mama is far, always remember, I have placed you both here in my heart.. I miss you my darlings. Love you both so much.

MacGyver


I suddenly remembered my favorite star Richard Dean Anderson when we were talking at the pantry while having our lunch earlier. Richard Dean Anderson is probably best known as MacGyver, the clever and inventive nonviolent hero who solved problems in his own unique way for seven successful seasons on ABC. In his roles before and since, this gifted actor has continued to demonstrate his remarkable talent and versatility.

Being fancied to his cleverness and unique moves, I never dared to miss watching a single episode of MacGyver way back elementary years. I remembered it was on a Sunday evening. I nearly broke my heart when the show ended and I never can watch my hero every Sunday. LOL.

I wonder how he looks now. I bet he is getting older. I frantically search the net as soon as I came back from luch and this is what I got.


This was the Anderson, who played the iconic MacGyver character back when he was 30 years younger and 100 pounds lighter

Ms. Venezuela: Ms. Universe 2009



Miss Venezuela Stefania Fernandez, left, reacts as Miss Universe 2008 Dayana Mendoza, also of Venezuela, places the Miss Universe 2009 sash on her at the end of the Miss Universe beauty pageant in Nassau, Bahamas, Sunday, Aug. 23, 2009.

Again, a Venezuelan danced in victory when announced as the most beautiful woman in the Universe, the Ms. Universe 2009.

The other top-five finalists were runner-up Ada Aimee de la Cruz, followed by Miss Kosovo, Droga Ganusha; Miss Australia, Rachael Finch; and Miss Puerto Rico, Mayra Matos Perez.

On the question-and-answer portion with the five top finalists, Fernandez very well-said she believed women have overcome obstacles such as hitting the proverbial glass ceiling.

"I feel we have reached the level that men are at," she said.

She was asked on her thoughts about how beauty contests promoted equality between men and women, Fernandez answered they provided exposure.

"We have quite a following worldwide," she said. "We are models to follow."

Miss China, Wang Jingyao, won Miss Congeniality and Miss Thailand, Chutima Durongdej, won Miss Photogenic.

Cheers and congratulations to the new Miss Universe. Cheers also to Venezuela for making a history of winning twice in a row in such a prestigious beauty contest.

Dahil May Isang Ikaw ( Because There Is One You)




I have always been an addict of Filipino Teleserye. It serves as my relaxation from a hard day's work. Most of those have entertained me a lot and carried me away to the plot and scene of the story. The excitement gets to a higher level as ABS-CBN created a reunion of the love team Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa. This is really a star-studded teleserye. This will make me hurry home again.

Main Casts:
* Kristine Hermosa as Angel Ramirez / Ella Alferos
* Jericho Rosales as Miguel Ramirez
* Gabby Concepcion as Jaime Alferos
* Lorna Tolentino as Tessa Ramirez
* Chin Chin Gutierrez as Patricia Aragon-Alferos
* John Estrada as Daniel Ramirez
* Karylle as Denise Alferos
* Sid Lucero as Alfred/Red Ramirez

Grand TV Premiere is already this evening, August 24 on the Primetime Bida. I'm sure I will love this. I love the chemistry of Jericho and Kristine. It makes me "kilig". LOL.. By the way, see the full trailer below and fall in love with the drama.

ATM Security Measures

Here is one thing I know from my colleague in the office about when a thief forces you to withdraw from your ATM.

When a thief forces you to take money from the ATM, do not argue or resist. You might not know what he or she might do to you. What you should do is to punch your PIN in the reverse mode.
I.e. if your PIN # is 1254, you punch 4521.The moment you punch in the reverse mode, the money will come out, but will be stuck into the machine half way out and it will alert the Police (security) without the notice of the thief. Every ATM has it; it is specially made to signify danger and help. Not everyone is aware of this.
Well, I dont know the authenticity of the information. However, it is one thing we might try when we are at this dangerous situation.

Debit Withdrawal without My Money on Hand

Last night, I was having trouble with my withdrawal from my Union Bank ATM. I went to a BDO ATM machine (I always have withdrawals there) to get money for our immediate needs. I should have paid house rentals plus the salary of our yaya. When I inserted my ATM on the machine, it read it, i did the usual process and input my pin and select the "withdrawal" transaction. I input the amount and then it went processing.. processing.. processing.. Very long time to process the transaction. After a minute or more, the screen read, "We did not receive any reply for this transaction" and my card got out. All I thought was the machine was offline or it could be Union Bank itself.

I transferred to another ATM machine which is Metro Bank , however again it was just processing and then again it could not be processed. Transaction was incomplete at the end. What made me concerned was when another Union Bank ATM holder complained that his money was debit when in fact transaction was incomplete. I was suddenly worried about mine. I called the Union Bank customer service right there and then. To my dismay, the PHP10,000 I withdrawn on that unsuccessful transaction was already debited from my balance. Oh my God! I needed that money badly as I was supposed to pay rentals last night. The customer service officer assured me that it will be credited back to my account but process takes 5-7 days to complete. 7 days? That long? They got my money for just a span of minutes then I'm getting it back for number of days. Hu hu hu. What a bad night!

However, things like that really happen. I spoke to my bank just this morning and she advised me that likely the connection failed in the middle of the transaction. She informed me that when one makes a transaction in another ATM machine, not of your bank's, the ATM center will send message to your bank and then your bank will reply if okay to proceed with such transaction. When it's withdrawal, it could possibly be that Union Bank has replied already and debit right away my money and then in the middle of that, there was a connection interruption that BDO system has not received the message which made it unable to receive the reply for that transaction. Since it was reported already, the bank will be resolving the problem in due time process.

My lesson from this experience is never to withdraw right away without checking the balance first so if there's a system problem , debit withdrawal without the money on hand will be avoided. I should also avoid withdrawing bigger amount in one transaction. That was my practice before, I need to take mental note of that. Hope my money be credited back soon. My budget is in trouble because of that.

Invitation to Linkfromblog.com


When I opened my blog today to check on daily visitors to give love back to them. I noticed a comment from an "Anonymous" commenter inviting me to join at www.linkfromblog.com- the place where you can find a lot of good opportunities of earning money without paying any commission. Wow, this sounds super!

Of course I hurried myself, opened the link in a new tab and there I was directed to this new commercial platform. I registered myself and added my blog. It was easy and no hassle at all. Finger-crossed, I hoped to get good opportunities here.

I want to personally thank that "Anonymous" commenter for personally inviting me to join www.linkfromblog.com. Who doesn't want to earn from what she loves to do anyway? So how about you? Why don't give it a try. Who knows this might be a beginning of something big for you. Good luck to us!
