Pride and Joy

My working at Caritas Malolos unfortunately did not last for a year, but having worked there even for just a short while was definitely an experience to remember. Of course, one of the most memorable persons I have met is my ever efficient medical technologist, Pia. In the short time that I have known her, I find her the epitome of an indispensable employee. Truly dedicated to her craft and someone who puts a joy in every work she does. Like me, she also has the love for crafts and is genuinely artistic. I am really trying to hook her to our scrapbooking yahoogroups! She often boasts of her daughter Julia, who means the world to her. When she talks about her kid, she seems lost and transfixed in a world of pure motherly love. I would say that Julia is indeed Pia's princess, someone whom she will give her all to provide the best for beloved daughter.

Months before Julia's birthday, Pia was really all-out in the preparations. Each time I visit the lab I marvel at the invitations and party give-aways that she has made for Julia -- all with her pesonal touch! It amazes me how she can transform something bought at Divisoria into something really dazzling. My hats off to her! As expected, the birthday party was a huge success. There were many attendees, the food was overflowing, the party giveaways were a pure delight for the children, and we still got to receive something extra special from Pia. Every one left with a huge and satisfactory smile on their faces. Way to go Pia!

One of the party features was the face painting and henna tatoo booth which caught the eye of my pride and joy, Edison. The inner child in him just couldnt resist to have a dragon tattooed on his arm. Hmmm, well nothing childlike about that really. I wanted one for myself too - if only I wasnt pregnant! ;) He chose the dragon because it represents his Chinese astrology sign. The dragon, they say, is the luckiest of all the signs. Hoping that by married to me, that wont disprove it. In our case, I feel that I am the luckier one compared to him - being love and accepted for who I am despite my shortgivings.

Yes indeed, I am so crazy in love with this guy. He always makes me happy despite every opposing thing that comes my way. I just feel so proud and secure just being right beside him. And though he drives like a Nascar driver (lolz), I know I am in good hands. He is just sooooo smooth!
