Blogging through mail

Trying my new setup.  Hope it will work so I won't have any excuse on not updating my blog. c",)

My first blog after more than a year

No blog for the whole of 2011! That's so lousy!

I hope I will be able to update this blog regularly from now on. Since I no longer have an excuse as I'm connected to Internet 24/7 for the next 2 years. Thanks to globe!

It's been a lot of updating to do. To share you with a good news, I'm now 9weeks preggy on my 2nd child. Hurray! I've been wanting this baby to be born in year of the dragon and it's going to be a wish come true. :-)

2 Timothy 4:18

The Lord will rescue me from every evil threat and will bring me safe to his heavenly kingdom. – 2 Timothy 4:18

My brother-in-law arrived home past midnight. He alighted from his vehicle and opened the gate. Two masked men approached him and declared a carnap. His wife and their teenage children heard the commotion and went out of their house. They begged the men not to get the van. When I heard their shouts and cries, I decided to go out to see what was happening. Then there was a gunshot. Then silence. Then their van and the other car sped off.
Thank God, even if the van was taken, the Lord covered us all with His protection. Some neighbors planned to help but backed out when they saw the armed men. My brother-in-law just had bruises on his arms and upper back. The carnappers pointed the gun at his wife and kids but fired up in the air. I was just about to go out of our house when the gun was fired.
It took some time before we all fully recovered from that incident. What saw us through? We continuously called upon the Lord and trusted in His saving power.
There was no trace of the van so the insurance company covered it. My in-laws are now blessed with a new car. God is good … all the time! Sol Saura (solmsaura@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
Whom do we call when we are faced with danger?

If I should ever walk in the valley of darkness, no evil will I fear. Lord, You are always there to show the way.

James Yap breaks his silence

By Patricia Bermudez-Hizon – July 1st, 2010

James Yap has remained mum about his marital woes, even after his wife, Kris Aquino, went on national television and aired their dirty laundry. But today, he released a statement which says a lot about his character, and reveals his intention of keeping the family intact.

“Kilala niyo po naman ako. Tahimik at simple lang akong tao. Tingin ko din itong lahat na issues na naglalabasan siguro dapat kami na lang mag-asawa ang mag-aayos in private. Ever since naman, never niyo akong naringgan ng kung-anu-ano tungkol sa relasyon namin ni Kris.

“Kaya konti lang ang gusto kong sabihin.

“Naniniwala ako sa kahalagahan ng pagkakaroon ng buo ang pamilya. Kaya ipaglalaban ko na mapanatiling buo ang pamilya namin ni Kris anuman ang mangyari. Alam ko walang pamilyang hindi dumaan sa ganitong pagsubok. Marami na kaming dinaanang pagsubok ni Kris before and I don’t think na ngayon pa kami susuko. Gusto ko talagang i-save ang pagsasama namin dahil syempre, may anak kami at hindi biro ang halos anim na taon naming pagsasama. Umaasa pa rin ako na darating ang tamang panahon na maaayos ang lahat.

“Marami nang lumabas na mga balita at mas pinili ko na manahimik muna bilang paggalang sa ating bagong Presidente Noynoy Aquino.

“May nagtatanong din tungkol sa hindi ko pagsipot sa inauguration ni President Noynoy Aquino. Nagkausap kami at nag-text ako kay President Noynoy at naiintindihan niya ako. Ayokong makadagdag pa sa napakalaking problema na kakaharapin niya bilang bagong presidente ng ating bansa.

“At isa pa, nangako ako kay Mom Cory na hindi ko pababayaan ang pamilya namin. Na-aalagaan ko si Kris, si Josh at si Baby James. Nangako rin kami ni Kris sa harap ni Mom Cory na hindi kami maghihiwalay.

“Alam kong mahirap para sa anak ko ang nangyayaring ito sa amin ng Mama niya pero alam kong darating ang panahon na maiintindihan niya ang situwasyon. May tamang oras at panahon ang lahat.

“Baby James, ginagawa ko ito dahil sa pagmamahal ko sa pamilya natin. Gusto kong mapanatiling buo ang pamilya natin.

“Kris, marami na tayong pinagdaanan na mas mabigat na problema pa rito pero hindi talaga ako bumitaw. Nanahimik ako palagi bilang respeto sa pamilya natin na hanggang sa ngayon ay gusto ko pa ring manatiling buo. Mahal na mahal ko kayo ng anak ko, pati na si Josh na tunay na anak na ang turing ko.

“Inuulit ko, it’s final, ipaglalaban ko ang pagsasama ng pamilya natin. At sa tulong ng Diyos, alam kong malalampasan natin ang pagsubok na ito.”

Kris Aquino hints at the last straw that did her marriage in

By ROWENA JOY A. SANCHEZ

Although Kris Aquino has resolved to keep silent on her separation with James Yap, it seems she can’t stay completely mum on the matter.

In an article by Ricky Lo published in The Philippine Star on June 29, the Queen of All Media revealed tidbits about her marital problems through a text message that she sent him.

In the message, Kris hinted at the straw that broke the camel’s back.

"It was what James told Baby James in front of me,” said Kris, contrary to claims by “people close to the couple” that it’s their “basic differences” that caused their marriage to crumble.

The source who claimed so told Lo on June 28: “They always clash because of Kris’ tendency to control James… Their differences are irreconcilable. Every time they fought, Kris would threaten to separate from James, saying, ‘Ayoko na talaga; sawa na ako. Hiwalay na tayo!’ This time around, James retaliated by saying, ‘Hiwalay kung hiwalay!’ I think they have reached a point of no return, no reconciliation.”

According to Kris “that snippet of a conversation you printed occurred on April 26.” She admitted that she and James had a “fight,” but cleared that “I didn’t provoke that.”

She also apologized for declining to divulge the exact words James said in front of their youngest son.

"That’s why I kept my silence on ‘The Buzz’ last Sunday. At three-years-old, my son is vulnerable and can be emotionally and psychologically damaged," Kris said.

The controversial Aquino confessed that even though she and James have had fights in the past, "I have never involved our son."

"We were keeping our distance from each other for several weeks when James exploded," she related. "Yes, I am guilty of many times saying I wanted out. But I have never involved our son. I have never said words that would hurt Baby James and negate his value as my child. I am trying to be decent and proper."

She also refuted the allegation that she’s a “controlling” wife.

“I have never controlled James. More than one year na nga akong hindi nakikialam sa kanya. We have been living under one roof but totally separate lives,” she related.

Now that the legalization of their separation is already being worked out, Kris said she simply wants a “chance to heal” after feeling tired “of lying to the world and lying to myself... presenting an everything-is-OK picture to the world when my home life has been so unhappy for so long."

She added: “Akala ng lahat ako lang ‘yung madaldal at pwedeng masakit magsalita. Hindi nyo lang alam lahat ng insultong inabot na rin ng pagkatao ko sa years na pinagsamahan namin. I have shared all this with off the record. I am not asking you to take my side but just to see why I am firm in saying this is a separation that will be legalized and finalized.”

The host-actress seems to regret that she and James did not have a prenuptial agreement.

“Under the law, because of the kids I do have a right to our condo in Makati but if he refuses to vacate, ayoko ng gulo. My Mom was insistent before that the practical thing to do was to ask for a prenup. James is smarter than you all give him credit for. He told me then na-in-insulto ang pagkatao nya and I was stupid enough to not insist,” she said.

Since moving out on June 22, Kris and her sons Bimby and Joshua have been staying at a hotel in Makati, while James remains in their condo which they purchased last year.

Kris said that her lawyers will meet with James’ lawyers in the coming days to discuss the details of their separation.

Sore Eyes

JM has sore eyes since yesterday.

Last night I wasn't able to detect that he has na, since he's already sleeping when I arrive home from work. Then this morning it was his Dad who noticed the redness of his left eye. Still I'm more on in denial pa rin. I'm still hoping that it was cause of sleeping position lang. But hours had passed and the redness is still there pa rin. So we decided to bring him to his pedia na, but the list is too long na. Kaya we brought him to my pedia na lang, nagbabakasali na may clinic sya at around 4pm, buti nalang at nandon sya so we were able to get medicine/eye drops for JM's eyes. We can't just buy over the counter since eyes is a very important part of our body. Hirap ng magbakasakali.
