When I watched the Philippines news through internet this news about having birth control program in the Philippines got my attention. The Catholic Bishops were against of having this birth control program because they said it's considered as abortion which is a big sin. This birth control program is an artificial birth control methods in family planning which provides free ligation, vasectomy and contraceptives like pills and condoms to the family who wants birth control especially for those big families. The catholic church banned not giving a communion to those people who supported this program. We all know that the Philippines today was facing food shortage, high price of products and lots of family suffering poverty. The catholic will having a prayer rally as a protest action vs birth control law. In my opinion, I think it's not a kind of abortion, I think this program could help to those family to have family planning instead of having lots of children that they can't afford to give their needs because of having unstable job or low salary. This program is a solution of over population in our country. As we saw lots of street children victims of abandoning by unprepared parents. Mostly parents having lots of children can't afford to send them to school because their income exacts only on their daily consumption or sometimes it's not enough so their kids force to work at young age in order to survive. I think it's a big sin if you had kids but you abandoned them because you can't afford to raise them. To all of us let's not just think the short happiness and contented of little income, we should work hard, save money and always look for the future of our family especially our kids. Let's open our mind and look what happened in our surroundings.

Last day I went to E-Mart to looked for unripe mango because when we went shopping every Saturday we couldn't found unripe mango, the displayed mangoes are all riped. So I tried to went last day and thanks God I found 1 box with 3 pieces of unripe mango and I hurriedly went home to eat it. I washed it and peeled the skin and sliced it. I got my sauteed shrimp paste(ginisang bagoong) and anchovy sauce(bagoong balayan). In the Philippine when we eat mango, we ate it with soy sauce mixed with sugar, salt, ginamos or salted small fish. I also bought ripe mangos for me to make mango shake and eat after my meal with my baby.

In our Korean school we don't actually had our uniform but me and my four friends had an agreement to buy a shirt that will serve as our uniform during our Wednesday class. We really did it, we went to market to buy 5 pieces of shirts and we wore it. Our teacher was surprised because we wore the same dress and we told them that it's our uniform. Well they just smile of what we did. But now I'm so sad because 2 of my friends already stopped going to school because they were separated with their husband with any personal reason. We are now 3 Filipina students left but today they doesn't come to school I felt alone but anyway my baby was with me it's ok.
I should say that Korea is a nice place very clean and organize and the people that lives here are very workaholic and responsible. I stayed at Pusan and I saw the beautiful place when we had our Korean school field trip. We went there last spring season and I saw the beautiful flowers, different colors of the leaves of the trees, different kinds of animals and lots of families having their picnic. All students that studied Korean from different countries went for that field trip like Filipina, Vietnamese, Chinese, Mongol, Russian and also our teachers and other people in city hall. We really enjoyed watching the view and taking pictures. It's very nice place and nice venue for family picnic. Here's some of my shots.......

Wedding picture at Korea
After wearing wedding gown here's the Korean traditional wedding gown
When I was a teenager, I said to myself to get married at the age of 25 but it never happened. I always dreamed to have a simple but nice wedding and well I think it happened. I had two wedding ceremony, I was first married at Philippines with my Korean husband and when we got here in Korea after 2 years we got married again, well that's their tradition because the wedding ceremony in the Philippines and here is not the same. I was so happy of wearing wedding gown twice in my life. Korean traditional gown made from the Korean's famous gown, it's the dress of their king and queen at the past and they used it every time when there's a special occasion such as wedding. Well, I was very proud to wear the queen’s gown.
One of my amusement is watching Philippine shows, well by this I'm updated on what's the shows and news at Philippines. I really love to watched it and I enjoyed it. I always watched teleseryes like dyesebel and lobo. Well if you want it too then try to visit this website: www.pinoychannel.tv

Last winter, I was waiting for summer to come because I was excited to buy some baby's summer dress but now here comes the summer and I hate it. Since, the heat of the sun seems to toast and burn my skin. I need to bring "yangsan" which means umbrella for sunny days and for rainy days Korean people called it "usan". Even though my baby is so heavy but I've rather suffer to carry her than she will suffer the heat of the sun. A bucket my sweat comes out so thus my baby. The heat of the sun always bring me headache. It's really hot because the wind it blows is warm and that’s why I have to take shower twice or more then it feels so nice to stay at the bath tab full of cold water. The hotness of the sun made me lazy come outside. I'd rather choose to have winter season because if we wear thick jackets, it feels warm and can barely feel the coldness but in summer times even though you bring umbrella or wearing sleeveless but the heat of the sun still there.
