A blissful wedding anniversary

To our niece and our nephew-in-law, our first inaanak sa kasal, best wishes to both of you! May the freshness of your love remain in your hearts forever.

The photo was taken at the office of the judge who officiates the couple’s civil wedding two years ago. A year later, they had the church wedding at the Immaculate Conception Cathedral of  Cubao.

I think I have posted our photo inside the church right after the wedding ceremony.

Be the Beautiful Bride on Your Wedding Day

Most women dream about walking down the aisle and getting married to the one they love. They would love to see themselves as the bride. This is probably the reason why a lot of women do become emotional when they watch people getting married. What if the time comes that you will be the one getting married? It might seem exciting but it can be very stressful as well.

Most brides become so stressed out that they become irritable. They like everything to be perfect from their veil, their dress and even their sterling silver cuff that they have to wear. These things would have to be perfect. Do remember though that in order to be the blushing bride on your wedding day, you should have that inner glow of happiness. No dress, no make – up will improve the bride’s aura if the bride is unhappy. That inner glow will shine and will be seen not only by your friends and family members but your groom as well.

Keepsake from CIW inmates

I saw this crochet throw pillow case inside the cabinet buried in the pile of untidy throw pillowcases and bed sheets. It brings back memories that made me a little bit sad. It was given to me by one of the women inmates at the Correctional Institution for Women (in Mandaluyong) after a visit and interview with some of them. 

This throw pillow case is one of the many handicrafts being created by the inmates to support their personal finances inside the prison. 

On this note, I wish them all well and hopefully they (those I’ve personally talked with) were already released from the institution and living a normal life now.
