jacob's first birthday!

There wasn't a lot of people in the party but we did our best to make the party successful, we have clown and everything.... the party was pretty nice but the birthday celebrant was sick and that's why he didn't enjoy his party that much for he is not feeling good.


recently taken

Hubby and i has been busy lately and we didn't have time for night out because of the hectic time at work and for me being in my driving class... yesterday, we decided to go out and have fun, spend time to each other and go for a dinner but while we are waiting for his babysitter we're taking post.


special greetings to someone special

You guys must be confuse now, well here's the story! When i was 14yrs old i 'm already under the care of her hands, she is the one who race me to be who i am now, who treated my like her own daughter and who gaves me the love and care that i need, who always there for me when a need a shoulder. She taught me on how to be strong and be patience all the time. And i really appreciates and thankful to all those things and even if i don't have any material things for you bu it's the thought that is count and you will always here in my heart. For the finaly speech.... happy birthday and more birthday to come and i really hope that i will see you guys soon.

my husband was a lucky winner

He is one of the lucky winner in one of the news paper here in okinawa, i signed our names in that form and fortunately his names was pulled out from the raffle draw. Then, the staff called him to pick up his prize and they took us a picture, the news updated winners just came out today.

This is what the news paper says:

Jason Adams won a \2,500 discount ticket to Kupu Kupu Spa and another \2,500 discount ticket to Jason Arbocast Photography. Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, he has lived on Okinawa five years. He says that Okinawa is the best duty station he has experienced so far. “I love city life, small towns and countryside is not for me,” he states. “I also became a father and a husband here, so Okinawa has changed my life quite a bit,” he says.


proud USMC wife

Yeeeeeehhheehhhh! my hubby got selected for promotion, God really answered my prayer. I am so happy when we found out that his name is one of the list as we know that getting promoted in military is very hard and sometimes you have to wait for a very long time to get this but for some reason you really have to wait, i mean, they have different field of job " they called it their (MOS) if you are in a MOS that promotes fast then your lucky but if your not then you have to wait or make a good move to get what you want. But anyway, i just wanna congratulate my hubby and to all who got selected.


nothing to do!

Our weather here is pretty bad right now for there is a big typhoon coming and it said that this is category 4 which is the strong one and this will probably hits us here by sunday night and monday so everybody is preparing for it's coming, like us here can't go anywhere cause of the strong wind that might blow us away when we tried to stroll around so to kill time i'm taking picture of my son as my camera model all the time.

jacob at 10mos old

Yes, we don't have option now but always put him in his playpen cuase he can just easily climb out the couch and go/do whatever he wanna do.


I'm just being a Packrat

Husband and i has been married almost two years but we already collected a lot of stuff at home that cannot be use, specially clothes and some miscellaneous things. We were cleaning the house last weekend and we noticed that one room is full of unused stuff and and drawers are full of stuff that we couldn't use anymore. Husband told me that we have to give it away or donate it to the thrift shop so atleast it wont be stock and ruined. I was so disagree with him cause i can't let those stuff go i don't mind giving away our unused clothes but not the other stuff cause we can still use it someday also i have a lot of relatives na "makikinabang nito" so why should i give it away to people i didn't know if this will help and mean something to my relatives. I like to collect stuff and keep it than giving it away to smebody else, i have trouble in letting things go. But i can't blame myself that's how i race "di naman kami mayaman noh na pamimigay lang yong mga gamit".
Anyway, here in okinawa specially military bases, my god ! every garbage days there's a lot of stuff seating in the curve and it is still in a condition,like entertainment center, tv, table nd chair, sofa, bed and some nice stuff, if we can just buy a house here i probably load my house with a great stuff for free. Also here in okinawa you are not allowed to owned two cars, if there's only one member in your family have a lincense you only have one car or else you need to ask them to get their lincense. Also yo need to have your JCI (japanesse compulsory insurance) done every two years if your car can't pass for the inspection you can't drive it anywhere,unless you get it fix or rather throw it away or junk it. That's the law, cause for me i talking about cars, i'd rather buy new that getting it fix cause it is more expensive just to get it fix. Being packrat here doens't work cause you can't hide car for your family and also it is a criminal offense.

My family circle

The one in the right with a long hair is second to the younger sister, the one in the left is the younger sister their both look like me too.hehehe Who is wearing red stripe is next to me,( dont get confuse, what i meant is that the twin were born 2years after me) they are actually twin but too bad her twin doesn't have picture cause she lives with my lola in the province but they are identical twin, they really look alike to each other." the one with microphone is my younger sister still.
my sister and my cousin gerald this little baby is my cousin too. I just can't remember his name.
My sister and some tenage actor... she might asked him for picture taking. my younger sister kimberly

my sister joy

my sister maricor and her twin name is marites

my cousin catherine

I am so happy if i saw my family happy too.

Undiscipline kids!

Well, yesterday during my driving class i was shocked when i saw from a 16yrs old kids being so disrespecful to an instructor. We have a great class instructor who is patient and willing to do his power just to teach class a good ways in driving, and while he is explaining there are kids who are laughing during his discussion and he asked the kids " what is funny about? what is funny of what i said?(instructor question to kids) and kids replied nothing but they are giving him this attitude that blows his nerves away and he said to the kids that if you dont wanna listen get out and come whenever you are ready to listen, " kids get embarrass and said something bad words to the instructor "your an asshole and thats in front of that class followed by your "G" . The instructor ask him, " what did you called me and he actually say word again, I was really shocked about it?Then, instructor ended the class discussion for that day i felt bad cause no body backing up for him i want to but i'm scared cause i don't wanna involve into a fight. I just can't believe what i heard and saw. Those kids are supposed to be well decipline cause they a military kids but it is so opposite and that i wont tolerate to my son, he will grow as a nice kid and always respecful to anybody.


japanesse entainment dancing

For all those bad days i went through wonderfuls days are always waiting in the corner, it was a sunday and very pretty day here, it is a family time day out so we decided to stroll at one of nice mall here which is JUSCO, and every weekend they have a free entertaining shows where girls and kids dances their traditional dance ( i dont what it called) but as you see in the pictures it gives you idea how they look like.


bad day after another!

Last thursday i have a poptest on my driving course and my hubby had to take me to that area where the class are held, he told me that he just gonna go for a walk with jacob in the track while waiting for me after my driving class but some incidents that we dont expect to happen, well, he lost the car in the track and it is a night time so he walked around the track many times to look for a key but he couldn't find it so he ask when will the class be done and i said 10mins more cause i can't while the discussion is going on,( i priorities it right?but believe i can concentrate listening to the discussion cause i am worried of them outside soaking wet from walking and after the class i help him find the key we went thru the whole track again but still couldn't find, finally hubby give up and said we will go home by cab and ask a car manufacturer to made another car key for us since we dont have duplicate keys but my instinct is telling me to go one more try and that instinct helps i found the key seating on the grass and we went home safe and sound.

Next day my hubby got appointment for his new tattoo and i for my driving class again, but early this day i already set up for jacob's babysitter and she promised us to come over the time before i and hubby's transaction and i then she called us 3 hours before that she got into car accident and she can't make it so everything is ruined so i have to call another babysitter who is 15yrs old girl but she is CPR certified and have completed a babysitting class then i feel better and then unexpected bad time again cause jacob's face broke out really bad cause i let him tasted a tiny pieces of peanut chocolate without realizing that he is so allergy to any chocolate stuff now i am stuck cause i can't leave him alone with the babysitter and husband canceled his appoint and he watches jacob and now and save for my class.( self fish right?)

saturday i felt so clamsy after the practical driving and hubby really wanna hang out but i always forgetting something, we already drove close to the base gate and i just remembered that i left my ID at home casue we cant get in without Id and now we have to back home to grab it. What i bad day right?


i finally got my driving learner's permit!

Yes, i just got my SOFA learner's permit, i've been here over 2years now but never have the confidence to learn driving before but the fact that my son is growing and life schedule is getting hectic finally my husband enrolled me to a driving class that makes me so nervous till right now but before i got my sofa learner's permit i have to take a sofa test and i was so scared that i might not pass the test but my husband always encourage me that i can make it, but he was right the test was so easy as long as your familiar with the traffic signs and traffic rules. The only the only im looking forward right now that hopefully i'll pass the roadtest so i can have my sofa lincense, means i can drive all over the place of okinawa if i have it but for now i'm only allowed on base.

Also if you have the learner's permit your sponsor or husband can teach you to drive inside base only and your driving instructor as well, last friday that was my first i touches the sterringwheel accompanying my husband with as my instructor and for the first timer driver my husband said i did good, i actually make the car move....hehhehe... just joking.. but seriously i'm having a hardtime to stay in the line where i am suppose to..scary right? but i will be good soon as i'm used to it.

The only thing that confusesme here is the road rule cause here in japan you always have to drive in the far left side of the road and also all cars here are all right handed.

women trafficking

Last sunday when i and family went for a walk, we saw a group of filipino on the b.c street asking for peace about what happened to one of filipina who worked here but i'm just so confused about this kind of situation/problem, yes, i am 100% pinoy also but who is really responsible or to be blame of what happened, is it the women who work here for living? is it the parents of women's who let their daughter/kids to work here? is it the embassies for letting them in to their country? is it the agency who hired them or the person's who ran those kind of business or the person who is trying to get them out of their work just for some little fun? kinsa jud ang may sala? What can you say about this?

Yeah, i and family co incidently was there in the group for lil while and it wouldn't surprise me if you can see my face in the tv news in pinas.

Let's pray for peace.


how's life being in prison?

Yes, he needs to be in prison " i mean in a safety place like playpen or crib" sometime most specially when i need to do something or take shower since he knows how to walk and find me wherever i am located inside the house....hahhhaha, he even loves to sitdown on my lap while i am depositing in my private bank. Jacob is not the kind of kid who love to be held all the time cause he wants to be himself only but he loves to everybodies attention all the time.


still at the park

This is what we do every weekend spent family time together.
