Row 1 - Actually taken last Thursday night when Jake went with Jerry and me to the airport to get the visitors from Manila. That's Jake and Zia facing off for the first time.

Row 2 - Shot at the Redemptorist Church after the 7AM mass that we heard for Jake's first birthday.

Row 3 - The customary Chinese birthday miswa and eggs with native chicken...

Row 4 - Feeding Jake a little bit of the birthday miswa and eggs.

Row 5 - The giant rice cake for stepping on. I forgot the actual Chinese term for this one...

Row 6 - Jake steps on the giant rice cake. This symbolizes growing up to be a good person.

Row 7 - Jake surveys the objects on the table: books, ladle, money, candy, calculator. He chooses the calculator just like Matt and Kyle. Then he follows it up with the coins/money.

Row 8 - Jake socializes with A-ma after the "ceremonies".

Row 9 - Moms with their young...

Row 10 - Exclusively Zia

Row 11 - Paparazzi d' Great wowing 'em kids and kids at heart with his magic tricks.

Row 12 - Jake didn't feel like blowing out his candle or posing for the camera... He must have been tired at 10 PM.

Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.
George Burns (1896 - 1996)

Yup that is so true. We feel a deep longing for loved-ones who are regions and continents away, and even more so on very special occasions.

Heirlooms we don't have in our family. But stories we've got.
Rose Cherin

Family stories, we have A LOT! And every time we recount these happy memories, itâ??s just like reliving each moment again.

The family is the country of the heart.
Giuseppe Mazzini (1805 - 1872)

â?¦Not Canada, not the Philippines or even Cebu.

The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life. Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.
Richard Bach, Illusions [1977]

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUNNIE! You know how much we love you and the boys truly adore you!!! May the good Lord continue to bless you with all the best in life!

Well, of course that's an exaggeration. Our house will never be dead calm especially with three active boys around. But these days, the house has been quiet save for the occasional question and answer sessions, after dinner, as the boys reviewed.

Matt & Kyle are reviewing for their exams while their brother Jake is taking a nap amid the preparation for his birthday.

Jake was playing with a few toys last Sunday when he gave out a loud yelp. From the sound of his cry, I knew something hurt him. So it took me a split second from the living room to get to the masters bedroom where he was. Jerry was inside looking after him, but didn't exactly see what happened.

I noticed his left eye looking bloodshot and irritated. Apparently he was playing with the balloon pump or something and accidentally poked his eye with it or with his fingers. The whole day of Sunday, it was red so we short-messaged his pediatrician for first aid. For safety, she referred us to Dr. Cajita, the same eye doctor we saw when Jake was only 3-weeks old.

Dr. Cajita saw Jake yesterday. He did a few tests to see the alignment of the pupils and to check on the redness. This was what he had to say in his note to our pediatrician...

Dear Dr. Diaz,

Thanks for sending back Jake. He has mild subconjunctival hemorrhage. It will spontaneously resolve. No need to treat.


NO NEED TO TREAT. What a relief! We thank God that it was just that and no damage was made to Jake's eyesight. Whew!
