  46. I want to one day put up day care centers per barangay that are well-maintained. The aim of these day care centers are to educate the children from a few months old to around 5 years. Better that they're in the center rather than watching stupid noontime shows.
  47. I do email at really wee hours in the morning, when I can have the computer all to myself uninterrupted...or, at the office, which, essentially, is alone time.

  53. When I go to the grocery, I just get what's on my list. (Well, unless I pass through a lane and I see something the boys like...)
  54. I believe that television is a waste of time. (But I still "waste" my time sometimes...)
  55. I fought with S when we were on the Eiffel Tower because he was too prude. I left him there and went back to the hotel by myself.

  57. I like reading the society pages...this is the first thing I read!
  58. I love it when it rains and I'm under the blankets and the aircon is cold.

  60. I really can't stand Barney.
  61. I like Dr Seuss books except Cat in a Hat.
  62. I actually like writing (which is why I blog). I used to keep diaries (kaya pala my mom knew all my secrets!) and my BFF who's in Canada now used to write long letters to each other!
  63. I actually like makeup! More like mineral makeup. And the reason my makeup kit is bursting at the seams is because I'm making up for lost time.
  64. I prefer shopping on the internet and the things I've bought online are makeup and makeup brushes, bags, books.

  67. My preferred drink is water. =)
  68. I have only recently learned to like SML. Gotta be really cooooold!

  77. I'm addicted to Facebook.
  78. Once, on a trip to the US, I was left with a babysitter with kids of my mom's cousin (they're Asian too). I surprised the baby sitter by eating 8 scoops of ice cream.  Reason?  They only fed me sandwiches.  I'm an Asian kid, I need my rice.
  79. Spending philosophy---if I can't sleep for more than a week thinking about something, it means I have to buy it.
  80. I think about having other children---only for selfish reasons.
  81. I think my kids are the cutest things! (After my husband, of course)
  82. I absolutely adore my husband. He's one of the most objective persons I know. (Which is why he can't run for public office---we'll never be able to make ends meet!)
  83. I love books---if only I could have a library at home. My shelf is bursting at the seams!
  84. I change my theme so often because I can't find one that I truly truly like!
