"The Legal Wife" Finale

I am not much of a Telenovela fan as I am more likely to indulge myself in reading or watching my all time favorite movies but "The Legal Wife" teleserye got me hooked up day after day ( I mostly watch it in the net since I'm busy working during the night), episode per episode and I think ABS CBN did a great job with the concept of the story. Not only did it got me thinking of the worst things that can happen in a relationship but it made me wonder if those people who are into this kind of mess are thinking twice of backing out or did it get into their partners'... The story had a lot of twists and although it was the kind of twists that you would expect in a complicated situation such as Nicole's (Maja Salvador) and Monica's (Angel Locsin), it carried a lot of moral lesson as compared with some other teleseryes that I have heard of.

Although the finale of the story was a bit disappointing, I couldn't think of any other ending that would bring out the best of the lesson the story is trying to convey. It served its purpose, although appalled, I think it's okay.


From what I have observed, here are the lessons that a person might learn from the story:

·        Don't start something that you will not be able to get out of.
·        If there is temptation, try hard to resist, if unable to, just walk out and don't look back.
·        if you feel that you are falling out of love with your partner, seek help, especially for married people. There are people willing to help. Couples for Christ for example for Catholics.
·        Partnership is a lifetime "commitment" there will be times when we will feel exhausted with a feeling that you need a new "environment", remember that, environment is different from commitment, know what you need.
·        I get disappointed with my husband too, I always make sure to count the strengths and not focus on the weakness, coupled with prayer...
·        lastly, beauty will fade, what matters is that you laugh together, share problems together, do silly things together, be young at heart together, eventually as time passes by and you get wrinkles all over, the only thing that will matter are the laughter and the funny stories...
I give a thumbs up to everyone who made this story possible... It left a good message that will forever be a reminder of the danger of playing with fire... I hope and pray that me and my husband will be able to resists such, and if ever time sends out the test and if ever we won't make it, may the good Lord grant us the wisdom to decide on what is best for everyone and not just for ourselves...

Kudos to everyone!

Summer Camp Almost Done...

Summer is almost over and so is the Summer Camp In Alabang town Center. This is by far one of the most unforgettable summer camps Kenn has signed up with, surpassing probably all of the summer activities that he has been a part of...

And here is the reason why... it's a GOLD medal baby! Happy and proud Mommy was I during that time! Although very tired from a very exhausting Malaysia trip, it was all worth it! =)

They were actually invited to participate in an inter-taekwondo school by Ampongan Taekwondo Academy, although novice to the sport (and also participated in the beginner's level), I did not hesitated to sign him up for the opportunity to interact with other students hoping that he will get more interested in the sport and might end up signing up in the regular class...

What he ended up with after this summer's camp is a well boosted ego and oozing self esteem! Way to go for me! =)

And I would like to share with you some of the events that took place during the Taekwondo Championships held last May 18th.

There were also some special moves showcased by the students.

Here was the actual competition that Kenn took part of...

I was the proudest Mom ever, may not matter to some people out there but for me, it is an accomplishment somehow to have given him the opportunity to appreciate himself. It took several kicks in the head and body and voila!

Hope you and your kids had an amazing summer as well, there is still time to celebrate the sun and the kids' vacation so head out and be a part of the world! Let them celebrate being kids! =)
