The Things I Gained for being a Wife, a mum to 10 & 1


Behind the ME is this. Yeah,  I meant those 3.

The kind of life we live here in Sydney is less than perfect. However, I always feel that we have been blessed abundantly and so, we took advantage of living life to the fullest. Always a day of Thanksgiving!

The things I have gained for being part of this FAMILY.

- That Health is our primary Wealth, not Money.
- That family drama are ESSENTIAL - we grow from it
- That family is the place to be- at your happiest or your saddest, your BEST & your WORST



on wifelyhood.
I have passionately invested myself to this. That sometimes, i think I am overdoing it. 
But that someone never stopped loving me. He gets me frantic at times---oh boy, he knows how to stir me when I am boiling. But he never lets go. He keeps his hand rock-steady. And each time he does that, I know I am in the best place. I do not want in any place better. I am in all ways pampered,loved &i am luckiest.

& the LOVE we share is far more than the ROMANTICS would experience. 
It is REAL. It is facing the mundane, the monotony & dance through it. 
Thank GOD for challenges! Otherwise, this would have been BORING.

True LOVE is Hard Work. It doesn't come EASY.

on mummyhood
My Kylene- she is the number 1 source of joy. she transforms me in the most positive form.  I know that this bond is FOREVER.   Oh, that tiny little eyes staring at me, wanting me, predictable & beautiful. She is mine, she came from me.

My Cheyenne- she shakes me. All of me. She is witty, emotional , beautiful.  She is domineering & impatient. She is me & somehow it scares me.  She is 10 and she has now seen most of the dynamics of the world, oh God! she has heaps of questions, i hope I have definitive ANSWERS.  

What is important to me now is that she is KIND & LOVING and it makes me so Happy!

& I hope my 3 feels how I love them. They are most important to me. 


And that is the most important GAIN i had in  this LIFETIME. To know how to LOVE.

Thank you, HEAVENS!

I found you.

It has been a struggle for me for the past 2 years to love your beach. Yes, it's vast and oceanic but the sand is not desirable given that I came from Bohol. But there you are , lo, and behold you showed to me your best beaches. Not crowded. Just the beach, the breeze and us. Gorgeous!

You are crazy Sydney.
You made me so inlove with you.

and I ride in the passenger seat with deep thoughts of Thanksgiving.
The sense of awe keeps on haunting. It is like seeing your high school crush. It keeps me blushing.

The Legend of the Sunken Castle
by Cheyenne Baquial 4B

Deep beneath the jungle vines is a hidden library containing many books of unknown secrets.There are many books that contain the darkest of secrets but there is one that is most sacred of them all;the book of The Legend of the Sunken Castle.Earlier this year,Professor Serin had discovered the library and took the book,and now we have the chance to read it.

Before the castle was "the Sunken Castle",it was just an ordinary fortress with friendly villagers and noble Kings,Queens,princes and princesses.All was ordinary except for a rude and horrible sorcerer who roamed the village.The villagers and royals disliked him,because of his rudeness.The selfish wizard dreamed of having all the gold and jewels and wanted the castle all to himself,but he kept it as a secret,for he had been working on an evil plan.

For years he had been exploring far and wide for powerful spell books that would have a great spell for sinking a village and a castle along with the people.Finally after years of searching,he had found an abandoned shop with a book in a dusty glass container in the centre of the shop.It was called."The book of Disaster Strikes".He return back to his home immediate and searched through the book.On the last page he found a perfect spell;the kingdom-sinking spell.It was a very lengthy spell to recite so he had to keep on practising and practising.

Finally after several years of patience the time had come and he was ready to put his evil plan into action.He stood on a nearby hill so that he would not sink along with the castle.He recited the spell aloud but accidentally said a portion incorrectly.Suddenly the fortress was commencing to twist and turn and everything was happening too fast to see clearly.The twisting and turning caused lots of calamity and screaming and as it happened parts of the castle became surrounded by water.

Soon the castle descended completely under the water along with the sorcerer.Later all the royals and villagers calmed down,but soon came to realise that they were all alive.The mistake the sorcerer had made transformed the people into merpeople with vibrant coloured tails.Their whole castle had turned into a sea kingdom with earth-like objects transformed into sea-like objects.Colourful coral and seaweed surrounded the majestic kingdom under the sea.


All knew that only one person or merperson could be responsible for it; the sorcerer!The merguards sent him to the merking's presence and he was sentenced to death.Without the wizard,there would be no more magical problems in the Kingdom.The kingdom was happy once again and with a new life underwater the merking decreed that their kingdom would be called Atlantis and they celebrated their new life under the water.
