1) Have you ever been on T.V.?
No, I had never been on T.V. I will just content myself watching those who
are on the T.V.
Yes, when I was a teen ager. My father approached me after that. He told me never sing again. We don’t have any singing talent in the family. I loved music. I think music does not even like me!
3.) Have you ever dyed your hair blond?
Yes, as a matter of fact I did when I was on my late twenties. My hair dresser said that would lighten up my features..hmm.. some how I don’t think so!!
4) Have you ever eaten frogs’ legs?
No.. Never tried even once. I am not into it.
None, I appreciate anything that had been given to me and each of them is equally important as the other. I am remembered and had been given something. For that alone, I should be appreciative.
6) Have you ever walked into a lamp post?
Yes, It was embarrassing. I was not looking into where I am heading so I did not notice the lamp post ahead of me. Good thing not so many people were watching.
7) Have you ever cooked a meal by yourself for more than 15 people?
No, I can not do that!! That will be very tiresome. I don’t have the energy!!
8) Have you ever fallen or stumbled in front of others?
Oohhh…yes!! Another embarrassing moment. Floor was very slippery and I was not able to maintain my balance so I stumbled in front of others! I immediately stood up and arrange my self. Walked tall as if nothing happened! My friends asked me if I was hurt and I replied “ No, I was not hurt!! The only thing that hurt was my pride” Then I smiled..they smiled back and gave me a tap!! Kinda clumsy, don’t you think?
9) Have you ever done volunteer work?
Yes! I don’t know if you can call that volunteer work but I did my share of community service..
2005 – I was a coordinator in a project focused on Global Warming. We focused on making other sector of our society realized how important it is to preserve our planet.
1991- I had another child. He is not my biological son. I met him in the orphanage. His mother was a prostitute and left him to a nun. Because his mom uses pills to abort him, his face was disfigured. His is human because he have a face, a nose, a mouth and a pair of eyes but his face is not aligned as it should be. His nose have only one opening. His mouth is an inch below his nose and his eyes is not aligned as it should be. My heart fell for him. Every time I visit the orphanage, he was there as if he knew me, he hugged me and he would give me those smile gleefully. He is full of life and he made me realized how lucky I was. Yes, my husband abandoned me and my son but my son was very much healthy and almost perfect to look at. My son was and is very normal. I had a job, why was I gloomy? Because a man who does not deserve my love finally gave me my freedom? Odd, isn’t it? I look at my foster son, I realized how lucky I am. My foster son is now in the United States, the church took him for a major operation and I was not able to see him since then.
I was pretty active on these activities. The bad thing was I had felt and seen the dark side of life and it made me weep even when it was not me directly affected. It was very frustrating because I could only do so little. One of the thing I realize was that, perhaps, before I extend outside my house, I should make sure I am already full on the inside. Now, my focused is giving the fullest for my son. Maybe, in the future I will go back to that dark side of the world but till then, I would like to make sure that the second time around, I could already be able to do something. Sometimes, encouraging words is not enough. The sad reality is that no one can change the system. One man can not change the system. And that the only one who could really help a person is himself. Others can support but the real action will be starting from the person concerned. That is some of the realities in life.
Have a nice day every one!!
