Birthdays

It was JP's birthday last Sunday. We went to church at 9:30 in the morning. We went straight to SM marilao to eat lunch but it was too early so decided to walk around the mall and check the things we need for the baby. We both loved the crib that we saw at Enfant's. I told JP not to buy it yet because we might receive one as a gift... So baka mag doble lang. I'm so excited to go shopping for my baby. But I know it's not the right time yet because we still don't know if it's a boy or a girl. At 11am we went to Max's restaurant along with JP's dad and sister to eat lunch. Chicken was good! I love Max's! Too bad I was having a hard time eating... kase naman may sipon ako... Damn! After that, we walked around the mall again. We arrived home around 1:30pm. At 2:00pm, JP and I went to Bicutan to attend my Grandmother's birthday party. As usual, we eat some more food! I was so full that I cannot stand anymore. My uncles, aunts and cousins were happy and shocked to see me. It's been so long since we've seen each other (usually every family reunions on new year's day). They were happy and making kwento about my future baby and my husband. I always bring JP to our family reunions so that he'll recognize the family. But the aura is different last Sunday. It feels like he is already one of the family. My uncles and cousins would talked to him without feeling dyahe or nahihiya... So I was comfortable leaving him with them. It was also my sister's birthday. She didn't have any special celebration. She just attended lola's party as well with her husband and Baby Williane. My mother's side of the family is BIG. All in all, they are 13 siblings (including the twins). Funny... coz they all look alike. Others are already living in the states and Canada. And I can also see that my cousins have their own family. So, first to the third generation of the family is there... There were kids yelling and running around etc. When we arrived home around 10pm, I was totally exhausted. I just greeted JP Happy Birthday again, gave him a kiss on the cheek and went to sleep.

My sisters


What can I say about my sisters? hmmm... There are wacky, kalog, outrageous, talkative, bright, creative, talented, kind-hearted, pretty, generous and loving sisters. We can rely on each other if we need help. I am very lucky to be one of the zitros-sisters. We never miss any occasion not being together. We make sure that we celebrate it even in the simplest form. And we never miss to give each other gifts.

Last Sunday my sisters and my mom went to bulacan to have their measurements taken for the gown. Ate didn't make it because she had to race (slalom) and Papsie had to accompany her. They waited for us at the gasoline station near Marilao exit. Once there, we headed straight to the house where the modista is. When we arrived, they were on their usual 'makulet' selves. One is making kwento to JP her projects in school, the other is in front of the mirror fixing her hair, another is fooling around with the fabrics lying on the sofa, and the other is fixing a hair-roller on her bangs she found on the table and they would laugh out loud on how silly they look like. Me, well, I was talking to tita (modista) and discussing how the gowns will look like, and mamsie was there just listening. When I saw them, I remembered, I am was one of them when my ate was getting married. And there I was, being the serious one. Now I understand my ate's feelings when she was doing her preps for her wedding. After that, we went to SM Marilao, because they haven't been there yet. The place was jammed with people (Sunday kase). The moment we entered the mall, they were gone. I was left with JP and mamsie. Maybe they left us on purpose because I was walking very slow. We just called them on their cellphone and met at Greenwich to eat pizza. It was 5:30pm when we finished eating. Mamsie decided to home because it was about to rain. We convoyed up to Meycauayan exit and it was starting to rain when they entered expressway. I just texted them, told them to take care and thanked them for coming.

We also like to take pictures. Every year (usually during New Year), we would schedule a pictorial session from a local studio. It was nothing at first, but when I started to collect and compare the pictures, it was hilarious. I can see how much we changed in appearance all those years. I thought, we may change physically but we are still the same inside. The recent pictorial session was taken from Picture and Co. Last May. Mamsie would re-copy it in big sizes and put in frames. If you're gonna see our house, it's full of pictures of us taken from different occasions.

Sometimes I miss the fun I had with my sisters. But we always update ourselves using text messages (naka-SUN kase kaming lahat eh). We even text each other to wake up, eat lunch, eat dinner etc. Even non-sense things that would only make us laugh. I'm looking forward to seeing them on Papang's birthday Tomorrow. We are planning to surprise our Papang (Grand father) on his birthday, complete with the cake and banners. I'm sure its gonna be fun again.

Monday is laundry day

JP and I are free during Mondays... So we usually do our laundry, cleaning etc. I woke up at 8:00 in the morning. I told JP to get up, but he said "5 minutes"... But I said that I was hungry and we have to do the laundry, so he got up fast. I fixed my hair with my usual siopo-look using my chop-stick and fixed the bed. When I got out of the room, I saw JP sorting our dirty clothes into 3 groups... The whites, de-colour and bed sheets/towels. I told hom to separate mine because I'm gonna handwash them. I went ahead at the kitchen to look for something to eat. We don't feel like eating lugaw so I just fixed egg sandwiches for us. While we were eating, we heard "Taho!" shouting outside. We stared at each other for 2 seconds and then he quickly got up to buy some. After breakfast, I played my P.O.T. CD in a very high volume so we can hear it outside. I cleaned up the mess at the table then joined JP who is starting to do the laundry already. While he was using the washing machine, I was at the sink handwashing my blouse and slacks. At 11:30am, I fried fish for lunch. After eating lunch, the last batch of de-colour was finished. But around 1pm it started to rain (but not hard), so only half of the clothes were dry. We just re-arranged them neatly under the roof. We took a bath at around 2:00pm and went out to pay the phone bill. We decided to go to SM because I really wanna eat some donutz! We went also to the grocery store to buy our food supply for week. We got home at around 4:00pm. I fried some fishballs, chicken balls and kikiam for mieryenda. And I also cooked adobo for dinner. Daddy arrived just in time for dinner. Afte eating, JP did the dishes, while I was sorting our clean and dry clothes. After that, JP went out to walk the dog. While I was waiting for him, I went ahead and checked our emails. When he arrived, we brushed our teeth and hit the sack. We had our usual conversation and biruan before going to sleep. We also talked about the baby because we could feel it moving already. I got my "Pregnancy and Guidance" book and excitedly read out loud that at 5months... The baby has hair, teeth growing at the jawbone, can sleep and swallow and is 10 inches in length. We also compared the diagram from book because we were both curious where is the position of the baby and how it looks like etc. We finally decided to sleep at around 9:00pm because we have to get up early the next morning. It was fun doing the laundry even though my back was aching all the time.

Before I closed my eyes I thought, we always stay happy with each other and contented on what we have despite of all the things that had happened to us. I think that's more important. We are truly blessed to have each other to depend on and have our very own bundle of joy... I can't wait.

Williane Amandine

Williane Amandine Ortiz Tobias. First grand daughter on both sides of the Ortiz and Tobias family. Celebrated her 1 year-old birthday last August 9, 2005. She is bright, curious and smiles all the time. I would not last 10 minutes carrying her because she is heavy. She enjoys walking around the room... as in around... Sometimes in circles pa! hehehe And when she hears her favorite dancable music, she often stops whatever she's doing and dance with her famous 'kembot' number. This baby girl also has a big voice. Went she gets excited, she shouts. She still doesn't know any words yet, only baby words at the moment. She often mumbles went she plays around with her toys, and sometimes stops and pay attention when she hears anyone talking. It's like she's listening and absorbing the conversation. She has two baby teeth on her lower jaw which you can see when she does her famous 'nakakalokong' smile. This baby girl is a fast-learner. She know the famous close-open dance with her hands, she knows the jollibee kembot dance that you can see on TV, she can impress you with her flying kiss and beautiful eyes and she knows how to do the 'Mano po'. We always get very excited when see her. And we cant wait for her next visit at home. She's so adorable... Kids! Don't you love 'em?!

Sleepless night

What can I say? Nothing special happened... I didn't go to work yesterday, because I could not sleep the other night. I want to bed around 9pm and woke up 12:33am feeling a little weird. I've been having chest and back pains, more on the shoulder area. Maybe I was stress-out, I dunno... I was struggling to fall asleep until 3:30am. Went I finally did, JP woke me up and ask if I was going to work... Because I was up all night. I said, "WHAT THE...!!!" Then it took me another hour before I finally doze off to sleep. I was feeling much better when I woke up at around 10am. JP and I had our favorite breakfast, which is 'lugaw and tokwa' with matching 'matamis na sawsawan'... Walking distance from his place. The rest of day was just walking around the house... I replaced the curtains, cleaned our room and re-arranged our clothes. I didn't touch my book, coz I don't feel like reading. I just checked my email and chat a little with my former highschool classmate.


Had a good night sleep last night... Maybe because of the rain. The night was cold and the sound of the rain makes me wanna go ahead and hit the sack. I just cuddle myself next to my husband and closed my eyes.
Next thing I knew, it was..... ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....

Paz Lenchantin

Bassist and violinist Paz Lenchantin makes up a full 72 degrees of A Perfect Circle's 360 - - a geometry which includes Keenan on vocals, Howerdel on guitar and vocals, Troy Van Leeuwen (ex-Failure, Enemy) on guitar and John Freese (Vandals, Guns N' Roses) on drums. Although Howerdel began creating music for the band more than five years ago while working as a guitar tech for Tool, Nine Inch Nails and Smashing Pumpkins, the group released its debut, "Mer de Noms," in May of this year and has been sailing the seas of success ever since.

Lenchantin was born in Argentina; both of her parents were professional concert pianists. Her siblings, a brother and sister, play a variety of stringed instruments. "We were raised classically," Lenchantin recalls. "We came to the States when was I six, but we weren't really allowed to listen to anything but classical, which is crazy when there's so much amazing stuff out there." She began learning to play the piano at the age of five. "I would watch my parents all the time, and was dying to play like they played. My mom put my hands over her hands, so I could see what it felt like," she says. By age eight Lenchantin was also playing violin, and by 12 she'd started experimenting with guitar.

"Hearing Jane's Addiction for the first time, I fell in love with the bass line. [Jane's Addiction bassist] Eric Avery inspired me to play bass," Lenchantin explains. She removed the top two strings from her guitar to fashion a makeshift bass, and bought her first real bass guitar when she was 15. Her new passion was something she hid from her parents for fear they might reject her musical choices. "I remember that day I decided to walk down and look [my mom] in the eyes and tell her that I really, really wanted to do this. My heart was pounding," she says. "They spent all this time and money and energy into making me this classical prodigy and I'm just going take this other road. I understood it could be difficult to hear." Fortunately, Lenchantin's parents were supportive. "They learned a lot from that experience," she says with a laugh. She practiced constantly and made the difficult decision to forego classical music while she built her rock and roll chops. "I didn't take any lessons. I learned just by watching amazing people. I'm fortunate to constantly be around the greatest musicians and just watching, watching, watching."

Lenchantin soon began to play in rock bands. In one of those, called Cherry Llama, she sang and played guitar, bass and piano; most recently, she played bass in the Martinis with Joe Santiago, formerly of the Pixies. She continued to broaden her inspirational base, drawing from Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante, Jimi Hendrix, and Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck. It was by way of another guitarist that she met Howerdel and eventually joined forces with him in A Perfect Circle. "I met [Tool guitarist] Adam Jones about four years ago, and Billy was his guitar tech at the time. I met Maynard through him as well," she says. They saw her perform with a banned called Sony Panic and asked her to join A Perfect Circle. "Ever since then we've been playing and becoming better friends every day."

"I had to say goodbye to classical for a while," Lenchantin says. "It's not until now that I am inspired to listen to it more and play it more. Classical is classical, rock is rock. When you combine them, [the music] will become another form of its own."

Lenchantin's gear includes a Fender Precision Deluxe bass, a Mesa Boogie 400 plus head, an Ampeg bass cabinet and a Lexicon pedalboard. Her violin is a Zeta Educator Modern Violin, which she plays with a Zeta Classic CodaBow.

Paz Lenchantin is becoming the master of the debut album. Not too long after touring for A Perfect Circle’s debut album, she left that band to play bass in Billy Corgan’s new project Zwan. But now after Zwan’s recent cancellation of their entire European tour apparently due to "family reasons," it seems that Lenchantin has jumped ship yet again. In a message on her fansite Lenchantin wrote: "I want to let you know that I am no longer with Zwan. My experience with Zwan has been great but it is time for me to move on to new projects. This fall I will be dedicating my time with [fellow Zwan member and former Slint guy] David Pajo as Papa M. I am currently rehearsing for our up coming shows in October. We also hope to start recording shortly after that."

Grandparents Day

It's grandparents day last Sunday. Ate, Winston and baby Williane came in to visit us again. We went to church and ate lunch at Kauloon Tea House along West Ave. We had so much fun, enjoying each other's company. Talking about everything we can think of. And of course, the food was delicious. It felt good to see everybody in one table again. Well, not exactly everybody because my 4th sister, sarah is again, missing in action.
After that, we went home and talked more... this time, regarding the little details for my wedding. While staring at the picture, I can't stop thinking that our family is getting bigger... But still we are very happy and blessed to have each other.

Mother and Daughter

There's an unexplainable bond between a mother and her child. No words can tell what it is. Take a look at the picture... This picture explains it all. When the baby is in her mother's arms, I can tell by the baby's expression that everything's gonna be alright and no one can harm her anymore. I had a dream last month. This dream was so clear, I can still remember the details. We were on a trip with these kids that I don't know. Don't know exactly where we're going but I can tell that we are only helping and accompanying these kids. One kid or let me say baby (same age as my niece in the picture who can walk with little supervision) came to me. I don't know why she did, but I can tell that I was assigned to take care of "HER". Take note, "her", because I can tell that it's a girl. While we're on trip, she was very close to me--playing together etc. When she got tired, she slept in my arms hugging my tightly. Then this strong feeling came to me... I don't know what it is but it lead me to this question in my mind... "Is this my child? Is this my daughter?" Because I felt I was related to her but kept thinking that it was impossible... I haven't given birth yet. But in the dream, I was not pregnant anymore. Can't remember how the dream ended but when I woke up, I can still remember that scenario. I told JP about the dream. He told me that maybe "Sinundo mo na yung soul ng future baby daughter natin." And my ate said, "Nagpaparamdam na si baby mo." Kinda creepy coz I never thought of that idea. JP told me an old story that he knew once, which is related to this dream, that some guardian angels accompany these baby souls to their mothers-to-be through dreams so that could see and meet them. I was stunned. Parang kinilabutan ako. I felt crying then and there. I know some mothers who are reading this feels the same way. Just like my ate in the picture. If my baby visited me in my dream... I'm glad she did. I've never felt so happy, satisfied and fulfilled holding her in my arms.

Auf Der Maur


Bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur was briefly a member of two of the ‘90s biggest alt-rock groups, Hole and Smashing Pumpkins, before launching a solo career during the early 21st century. Born on March 17, 1972 in Montreal, Canada (her mother, Linda Gaboriau, was one of Montreal's first female rock radio DJ's), Auf Der Maur started her music career by playing bass in local outfits, including Tinker. But the course of her musical career was inadvertently changed due to a thrown bottle. Auf Der Maur and some friends went to see Smashing Pumpkins on one of their first Canadian tours, and when one of her friends in the audience threw a bottle on stage, Auf Der Maur made it a point to apologize to Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan for the incident. Soon the two got to talking, and a friendship was born.


By 1994, when Corgan heard that friend Courtney Love was in sudden need of a bass player (due to the drug-related death of Kristen Pfaff), the head Pumpkin recommended Auf Der Maur to Love as a replacement. Soonafter, Auf Der Maur landed the gig, and bid adieu to Tinker (who managed a brief recording career with other members). After Hole's world tour wrapped up in support of their breakthrough release, Live Through This, Corgan helped land Auf Der Maur a spot the 1997 solo release by ex-Cars leader Ric Ocasek, Troublizing (which Corgan produced as well). After a brief U.S. tour wrapped up (which saw Auf Der Maur take Ben Orr's spot to sing “Drive" each night), the bassist returned to Hole, who finished up work on their third full-length overall, 1998's Celebrity Skin -- which Corgan served as a ‘consultant' on. Once the album's tour wound down, Corgan came a-callin' once more, this time inviting Auf Der Maur to join the Smashing Pumpkins (who had dismissed co-founding bassist, D'Arcy, under mysterious circumstances). But the Auf Der Maur-era of the band didn't last long -- after a pair of albums, 2000's MACHINA/The Machines of God and Friends and Enemies of Modern Music (the latter of which was never formally released by the group's record company), the Pumpkins' split up.

In the wake of the Pumpkins' split, Auf Der Maur kept herself busy with a few projects, including a Black Sabbath tribute band called Hand of Doom (which she handled lead vocals for), as well as an all-star side project, the Virgins, with former Pumpkins bandmate, James Iha (which was rumored to also include Ryan Adams and Evan Dando, among others). In summer 2004, the bassist's solo debut, Auf Der Maur, was released. Produced by Chris Goss, the album featured appearances by a variety of renowned guests, including Blinker the Star's Jordan Zadorozny, Tinker's Steve Durand, Tomahawk's John Stanier, James Iha, Hole's Eric Erlandson, Rocket from the Crypt's Atom Willard, Fu Manchu's Brant Bjork, and Queens of the Stone Age mainmen Nick Oliveri and Josh Homme.

Cool...

Friends

Having friends is somewhat risky... bcoz they come and go into your life... You'll never even know if they are trust-worthy or not. Some will just use you for their own benefits. And you'll never realize it until several years after. Others, leaves you in times of trouble and pain. And some even worst... Betrays you or even stabs you at back. It's sad to know that they are people like this. When I was in college, I had a lot of friends who would always entertain and be with me. When I gave up my band then... (coz I had to do my thesis to graduate duh?!), suddenly they would not talk to me anymore. Wonder why? You guessed it... I was the one who had the instruments... so without me, they cannot practice. And friends of their friends cannot also practice for free. Then I would hear bad rumors all over the place. Sad but true. The hell with them. I don't need them... they need me. That's also one of the reasonsssssss why I gave up performing. I still wanted to but not right now...

On the other hand, I'm also lucky to have friends who--against all odds--stayed with me up to now. Even though we don't see other often, they are always there for me. These friends are like sisters to me. They understand everything about me... Always willing to help even though they're far away... Never missed to greet or send a card on my birthday or during holidays... My heart wanna scream everytime we meet on chat rooms, coffee shop, pizza parlor, videoke or bars etc. It's like I wanna savor the moment and wished that time would stop... These people shouldn't be called 'friends'... Because they are 'family' to me.

To my dear, dear friends... You know who you are... mwah.

Plain and Simple

Don't you like things which are plain and simple??? Nothing too flashy or over decorated. I like being simple but still be a head-turner at the same time. Like the way I dress myself. There should be something 'catchy', like the boots (c/o shala) etc. My sisters and I are planning the design for my wedding invitation the other day. I said I wanted it to be plain and simple. I think they did a good job when they gave me the sample-finish product. I'm so excited! Everything is hand-made by us. All we need is a good color combination of hand-made paper, tracing paper, some strings, a little figurine for the motif and of course--glue.

I'm totally satisfied with the way my blog looks. Pretty simple huh?... I got my tagboard and my clock posted (finally).

..............................................................................................................

..............................................................................................................
..............................................................................................................

For a moment there my mind went blank...... Then I'm having a hard time composing words. Maybe because I'm aware that people are starting to read this. What the hell...

ANYWAY, it's my dad's birthday today. We are gonna be having a simple dinner party at home. Mom already cooked spaghetti, ate is gonna buy a really big pizza at A-Venneto (tama ba spelling ko?), jac is gonna buy some ice cream (yummy!),I'm gonna buy a whole KFC chicken bucket, and Sarah is gonna bring the birthday cake (Ice cream cake!-->YUMMY!). I'm so excited! More picture taking! harharharhar! Actually, this is what I wanted... Dinner with the whole family. For me, it's important to be happy. Living a normal and simple life, like we have right now. I wish I would have the same with my future family... with my soon-to-be husband and baby.

Books

I've been addicted to books lately. I like to read a lot. Maybe because I'm too lazy to walk around and everything... I like to read Reader's digest. My dad subscribed a copy for a whole year. So I've been collecting these mini-magz for 2 years now. But reader's digest is not enough lately. So I started to borrow my sister's book that she's reading... Sabi ko, "Ako muna!..." hahahaha I just finished "Burning Bridges" by Inette Miller, which I got from a local book sale, along with another book. Unfortunately, I forgot the title of that book, but it's about a murder in the vineyard or something. The book I borrowed (and reading right now) is "The Rule of Four" (a novel) by Ian Caldwell and Dustin Thomason. It's quite good, actually because it's another murder story. My other sister went to this book sale somewhere in makati or something. They have best-seller books there that is on 50%-70% discounts... damn! I really wanna go, but I have no time at all. My sister also gave me this book last Christmas... "Angels & Demons" by Dan Brown. And I'm looking forward on reading "Di Vince Code". Unfortunately...I still don't a have copy for this.. Shame.

Reading a book is like I'm traveling into far places while lying down and hugging my favorite pillow. It relaxes the boby while the it gives the mind the opportunity to travel and explore. I think, It's better than playing video games... That's my opinion.

Baby

It's a Saturday today and my shift is almost over. Started thinking what my baby would look like... hhmmm... I wanted him/her to look like me, of course. I'm excited and scared to the thought that I'm gonna give birth. I never really liked hospitals anyway. But as I sit here and imagine... I feel I wanna give everything to my baby. It's the feeling that I never really understood when my friends told me that... But I believe them now. It's like my whole world turned up side down when I knew about this pregnancy thing. In other words, it changed my life overnight. Before, I only think of myself, things I wanna buy, places I wanna go and friends I wanna meet etc. Everything now is focused on him/her (I wish I knew the baby's sex)... Also I keep telling myself before that I still don't wanna have a baby. I feel I still have so much things to do and accomplish. I guess, this is one of them huh? God would never give this blessing if I cannot handle it. Well, I believe I can and I'm thankful for such a wonderful blessing.

Baby is now 4 months old and it is starting to move and kick a little bit. I don't know what I'm gonna feel... Mixed emotions. But of course, I'm happy.

Thankful...

Just finished reading shala's latest entry on her blog. She stresses how lucky we are to have a home, lovely family, very very good friends, food everyday, clothing, job, etc. Me, myself has been complaining lately about the country's political standing, standard of living, gas rates, pamasahe, weather, traffic and everything else. After reading that, I came to realize that I am one of those people who are lucky living a healthy and normal life. Shala's right... It makes me wanna to go church and be thankful. Thankful to have a wonderful FAMILY, whose ALWAYS (and I MEAN ALWAYS) been there for me. Every step of the way, there are always there to help. Especially now... It's been really stressful... planning the wedding, preparing for the baby, appointment for check-ups, going to work, etc. But yesterday, I went home in qc. It really feels good to be home. Watching TV with my mom, talking to dad and all that.

Everything in life comes and goes. We must not forget to be thankful for what we are, what we have, what we can do and what we are capable of.

Everyday Routine

Let me tell about my day-to-day routine. My shift schedule is 6am-2:30pm, rest day is Sunday/Monday. During the weekends, JP wakes up around 3:30am to prepare hot water for me. Then he wakes me around 4:00am. I take a bath which will last 30minutes. After that, I will eat breakfast and prepare my 'baon' ( which includes 1 big sandwich and 1 rice meal). I brush my teeth, I organize my things and we leave before 5am. We will arrive at around 5:30am or 5:45am at the office--giving me enough time to prepare my things before I go to work. I will eat my yummy sandwich and take my vitamins around 9am and have lunch at noon. JP will fetch me around 3pm--giving time again to finish my work and pack my things. We will arrive (in bulacan) around 4pm. Once we get there, guess what I'm gonna do? What else? Eat my 'mieryenda'! My mieryenda feast will depend on what food I'm in the mood--like ginatan, turon, palitaw etc. But goldilocks original pulvoron is what I really wanna eat every after meal. I will then take a break by lying down. I enjoy this moment coz this is the time that my baby will kicks (pero mahina lang). It felt really awkward at first but as he/she continues to kick and move, the feeling is different. I've never felt so happy and fulfilled. It's like one way of saying that 'Hey mom, I'm here..."

We will have dinner at 6pm when daddy arrives from the the office. We'll eat, wacth news and talk a little on had happened during the day. I will usually stay up until 9 or 10pm coz mamsie, papsie or ardey will call at my celfon and we'll have our never-ending 'chismisan'. I really like talking to them. Then JP will ask me to go to bed coz it's getting late. Well he's right... I really need to sleep coz I will wake up at 4am and repeat everything again...

It's kinda different during Wednesdays... I have to commute my way to bulacan coz coding kase ang kotse eh. But that's all there is...

During weekends, JP and I usually goes home (qc). I like going home during weekends. Everybody's there, all my sisters--including my very cutie niece. But I still have to go to work on a Saturday. On Sundays, JP and I usually stays home playing with baby williane amandine. Then we'll go home (bulacan) on Sunday afternoon. On Mondays, I usually stays home (bulacan) and finish reading my book... How boring.
