What is the weather like today where you live?
Sunny. Glad that we’ll have a sunny weekend this time. I think typhoon Frank is now wreaking havoc somewhere in China.
On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how career-minded are you?
With my recent resignation from my job, obviously I have taken my career on to the back seat and family is my topmost priority at the moment. If motherhood is considered a career then I’d be a 10.
What type of window coverings do you have in your home? Blinds, curtains, shutters, etc.?
Name something that instantly cheers you up.
Toothless grin from my little man.
How many times do you hit the snooze button on a typical morning?
Now, just once. I’ve changed since I became a Mom. But way back my student years, everyone’s already up and pissed off from the non-stop snoozing of my alarm and yet I’m still wandering in my dreams. I was that sleepyhead really.

If you could be any current celebrity for one whole week, who would you want to be?
Ramiele Malubay of American Idol.
On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being highest), how much do you enjoy talking on the phone?
It depends on whom am I talking with. If it’s some friend or relative whom I haven’t heard of or talked with for a long time, it would be a 10! But if it’s some pestering agents offering credit cards or insurance plans, then it’s a freezing 1.
Name a charitable organization to which you have donated (or would like to).
I have a monthly donation pledge to UNICEF tied up with my credit card and I plan to pursue it for as long as I can.
What is a food you like so much you could eat it every single day for a month?
Have you or anyone in your family had the flu this year?
Thank God, everyone’s healthy.
My take on this week’s Fridays Feast:
What is your favorite beverage?
Since I got preggy, a glass of sweet mango shake has been one of my cravings.
Name 3 things that are on your computer desk at home or work.
Ohh..very timely FF question. You may refer to my previous post below so you can see for yourself how my desk looks like at work. The three primary things worth noting are: 1. PC monitor with several unread messages 2.) Calendarssssss 3.) some paperworks.
On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being highest), how honest do you think you are?
It depends on who I’m talking with. Lolz. Just kidding. I hate liars so I try to be as honest as I can. An 8, probably.
If you could change the name of one city in the world, what would you rename it and why?
I can’t think of any right now. Probably I wouldn’t at all since they’re already renowned and distinguished with such unique names.
What stresses you out? What calms you down?
The demands of my work usually stresses me out. A moment with my hubby or a serving of my favorite food calms me down.
Pardon this 2-days delayed post. Here’s my take on this week’s feast.
What is your middle name? Would you change any of your names if you could? If so, what would you like to be called?
My second name is Elena and my first name is Maria. It was actually my Lolo (grandfather) who named me such to pattern with my two elder sisters’ names: Maria Leila and Maria Theresa. I wouldn’t change my name because we won’t be Tres Marias anymore if I do so. Besides, being named after a saint makes me feel holy (Lolz). Although, I preferred to be called casually by my nick “Mai” so as not to sound so formal and c’mon a one syllable name is easier to pronounce, isn’t it?)
If you were a fashion designer, which fabrics, colors, and styles would you probably use the most?
Honestly, I’m not that much into fashion that I usually settle with and favors simplicity and comfort. I’m not into funky and loud colors. Further, I’m not a “kikay” type.
What is your least favorite chore, and why?
What is something that really frightens you, and can you trace it back to an event in your life?
Earthquakes. I guess I got traumatized by the Magnitude 8 quake that struck in the ’90s. I was a third-grader then and was in school crying along with my classmates.
Where are you sitting right now? Name 3 things you can see at this moment.
On our bed in front of the lappy. I am seeing my S3 IS cam, extenal hard disk and the S3 IS’ manual scattered on the bed.
