birthday wishes

i have to admit that there are some birthday wishes that did not come true. but. people, especially my students did their best to make this day special. and i cant tell you how happy you made me. i thought people forgot me due to late texts and calls. but it aint over till the fat lady sings. hahaha. people eventually called, texted and messaged me online, especially email, friendster and most of all, facebook. each and everyone of you, thank you for going out of your way to make me feel happy and special. especially you students. i love teaching you. its almost not a job anymore but its almost a game that i would like to keep on playing. though you drive me insane often enough, you students, are my sanity. its an honor to teach you. there is something very satisfying when i see you learn and love art through my guidannce. thank you so much. again, see you in class.

    hahahah… lobos lubusin ang pagcocomment!!!!!
    In behalf of BS Chem 111,, we would like to dedicate this poem to Ma’am placino!
    TO A LADY, ON HER BIRTHDAY
    Lady, I wish thee happiness
    On this thy natal day;
    May peace and calm serenity
    Forever with thee stay.
    I’ll ask old Time as he steals past,
    Relentless though he be,
    To touch thee lightly, and to deal
    Most tenderly with thee.
    I’ll ask the days as they go on
    To their eternal rest,
    To leave behind them, just for thee,
    Those things you love the best.
    I’ll ask the hours, as they trip by,
    If any gift there be
    Among their treasures that is choice,
    To leave that gift for thee.
    And if there be a secret wish
    Close hidden in thy breast,
    I’ll ask to have that wish fulfilled,
    And given with the rest.
    May flowers of grace, and blooms of love
    From amaranthine bowers,
    Be culled for thee, and on thee fall
    In soft ambrosial showers.
    Now may that peace which passeth all
    We here can comprehend,
    Be with thee, and remain with thee,
    When all birthdays shall end.

    On the Mood to write:

    Birthday is not at all wishing for some things..
    It is meant to remember God’s given grace in the past years of our life
    We may not be as wealthy and as gorgeous as other maybe
    but Love do surrounds us, you’ll see

    ahahah,, wala lang poh yan ma’am hahhaha, nagpapaka emo!!
    ingat poh parati!

    proud top be chem,
    mary Rose

    @maryrose wow. as in WOW. im so touched. thanks chem students. i cant find the proper words right now. but i am so touched. thank you so much. it is students who care and students who love learning who makes teaching worthwhile.

    and yes, i know, there are a lot of worderful things in this life, and we should just focus on that. the hardest things are actually to accept that you cant have even the simplest things, those that doesn’t cost anything, but is actually worth a lot.

    and my whole name is actually maria portia olenka cabuyao placino

    @djoaniel thanks for the birthday greeting. thanks for remembering. and… well… chill… they’re kids, some, very new to blogging. to some of the kids who read djoaniel’s comment, ayun, so proper words daw. be sensitive. chill na djoaniel ha 🙂

Little one eating carrots. Lol. We gave her some big slices just to see. I also gave her several bites of my chocolate earlier and it may have been a mistake because she loved it. It was 88% dark, vegan, and gluten-free, you have to be careful with dark chocolate as most commercial ones would still have dairy and other additives. She eats better that us, I think. Today, it was rice cereal for breakfast, stewed cinnamon and nutmeg apples and pears for morning snack, spiced quinoa for lunch, nutmeg pumpkin for afternoon snacks, and carrots for dinner. I eat her leftovers and damn, they sometimes taste better than the adult food. She also eats rice puffs and rice crackers with her medicine. Good thing she still eats well despite her illness. Sigh. Onwards little one, Daddy caught you on video this time. #babynarratives
Reading kind of morning. Today is your grandfather's birthday, I wish he got to see you grow up and read books like that. You're lucky your Daddy gets to read to you like that little one. #babynarratives
My Valentine. (We're not really fond of this holiday, except for the cake. We'll see if we can get an allergen-free cake last minute. Lol. This time of the year is too commercialized for us to enjoy.) #babynarratives
Walking, walking; walking, walking; walk, walk, walk; walk, walk, walk... Had to get the house cleaned, then this happened. So cute. The journey to walking begins with a single step. Lol. #babynarratives
Clingy little donut and exhausted Daddy. Lol. Extremely clingy week, with cough, colds, and a tiny little teeth trying to break out. #babynarratives
We can't go out and we're too tired to cook. So we ordered a feast. Lol. Let's try again next year. Yet little one still has fresh food, been introducing her to spices, more aggressively this time. And she gobbled them right up. Yay. #gamerchef
