"The minute I stopped trying to find the right guy, and started trying to become the right girl…the guy came."


There's no right timing for this pero sa lahat naman ng panahon, bat ngayun pa. Bat hindi pa sya pinaabot ng kahit pasko man lang.

I just found out my grandmother died. I feel really really sad. Sya lang ang naabutan kong lola (father side) coz my grandmother from mother side died when I was still small.

Sya ang lolang nag bansag sakin ng 'sinumpa ng quezon' when I was still a baby. At sya din ang gandang ganda sakin tuwing makikita nya ko nung malaki na ko.

I love you lola carol! Thanks for everything. Mami-miss ko ang masarap mong tinumis at ang pag aasikaso mo samin tuwing dumadalaw kami sayu. Higit sa lahat, ma-mimiss ka naming lahat.

Excited to the Nth Level

I know in the Philippines, sobrang wala na nag wo-work during these times. I know cuz i have been there, I have done that. Holiday mode na lahat ng mga tao. And I know also I have no right to feel like that kasi wala naman ako sa Pinas PERO wala akong magagawa na even if I still have like 8 working days to go bagi umuwi ng Pinas at wala na ko sa mood mag trabaho. Pwede ba paki-fast forward na lang to December 24? If I am asking for too much, kahit up to December 23 na lang. Hehehe!

Haaaay! Wala na tlaga ako sa mood mag work. Nakaka inggit yung mga nag wo-work sa Pinas kasi I know again na puro Christmas parties na lang inaatupag nila. I know!

Nwei, malapit na. Konting tiis na lang. I have waited for this for a year! Yes, for a year ako nde nakalanghap ng polusyon sa Pinas at kahit saan ka pa at anu ka pa, hahanap hanapin mo tlaga ang amoy ng Pinas.

Hindi naman sa humihingi ako ng maraming trabaho ha. Pero nakaka dagdag din kasi yung mejo petiks mode ko ngayun sa work sa pananabik ko sa pag uwi. Wala masyado gawa kaya mas maraming time mag isip kung ganu ko na eexcite. Alam mo na. Hehehe!

Ay naku... Paulit ulit na lang ako kaya titigilan ko na kasi Im sure gets nyo na kung gano ko ka excited umuwi ng Pinas. Not to mention, 1st time uuwi ni Kylie sa Pinas. Uber excited lalo ako. Ayan, naulit ko naman... Stop na muna. Byers! :)

Work and Others

I had a hell week last week and another half hell week this week. Our crappy system is giving out weird errors (database transaction rollback) that the developers who wrote it can't figure out why.
So this week has been busy doing reprocessing of transactions that were not reprocessed during the first submission. Hope it will stabilize soon and no work for tomorrow.

Speaking of which, I plan to do my Christmas shopping tomorrow. A week and 3 more office days to go and Manila, here we come. I have never been so excited in my life. It has been a year since I have visited my home country. *excited to the nth level*. Actually so excited that I don't want to work anymore. *holiday mode activated*

Plan to go home early today and by early I mean like 6.30 pm. I hope there's no issues so I can escape early as planned.

Ciao for now.

Love Agency

One thing I have learned from my Indian officemates is that in India, there is such a thing as love agency where in one who is ready or wants to get married already could sumbit his or her credentials/resume to the said agency. Now, if another person is also ready to commit, he or she can just go to the same love agency and find someone who gets his/her interest and who is of course in accordance of his/her standards.

The founder can contact the foundee for them to meet and if everything is okay with and for each other then they have found their partner.

Now, in India, the ones who will usually look for someone's partner would be their parents. This is where arrange marriage comes into the picture. But before anyone starts to raise an eyebrow, this arrange marriage is starting to change little by little. If before, they cannot say no to who ever their parents choose for them, now Indians can do that already especially those who are in the city and "educated".

I just find this piece of information interesting. I wonder if the same would be implemented in the Philippines, I bet there would be fewer single ladies and gents and those with high standards could easily pick from the list of people in the love agency. The question now is whether the person they pick would also pick them. LOL.

Interesting huh?!

I Love Blogger

Im thinking of closing down my tumblr blog. I know it's just new but suddenly I can't remember why I created that blog in the first place. It's not easy to maintain 2 blogs and there should only be one repository of my thoughts.

Oh now I remember, I created it because there is a tumblr app on iPhone while blogger didn't have. Yes, I said "didn't" coz blogger now have one! Thanks to BlogPress, the one I am using now for this post.

And now that I can link blogger to my iPhone, guess I don't need tumblr anymore... Oh well, we'll see... :)

Off topic:

You know what sucks?! Geocities is closing down and there will be no free web hosting for yahoo... Huhuhu! All my files were uploaded there including all the smileys I used for this blog. So yeah, you can expect some broken links on this blog when Geocities totally closed down. And this will happen sometime in October. Seesh!

Quickie One

I was inspired to do a quick post while reading new updates from lui's blog. So here I am doing a quick one at work.

I am working again. Yes, same company (HP), different project, different teammates, different location, different client but same boss. I started working again last Aug 16 and so far so good. My office location is about 5-10 mins by taxi from my place. So far, this project is not as hectic as my last project in another client and I really really really hope that it will stay that way.

Kylie is now 3.5 months and she's getting cuter and lovelier each day. I am glad I have a baby now. It really changed a real good deal of things in my life and these changes made me a better me. I am now more inspired in doing things and seeing her smile literally takes away all the negative things around me. She's a real angel.

Next Sunday will be Kylie's baptismal here in KL. We initially planned to have her baptized in the Philippines when we go home this coming December but she will be 8 months by then. Since in our norm (Catholics), the younger the child is, the better, we have decided to have her baptized here then another one in December in PH with our friends and families. There will just be a small get together in our place after her baptismal here in KL to have a small celebration.

Well, I guess that's it so far.. Nothing much is happening. And btw, I am now on facebook... Hehehe! I’d like to play some of the apps there like FarmVille or MafiaWars but I’m afraid to get addicted and will have no time for Kylie so I dare not to try it. So I just use FB to connect with friends and share pics. Hehehe!

Ta-ta for now!

Kylie and Her New Ride

Many people say she's big for her age. She's only 2.5 months here. We are so blessed to have a healthy, normal and pretty baby girl :) She does not want her big stroller so we bought her a smaller one. Look how comfy she is. So comfy that she even falls asleep in it.

My Fair Share of Being a Drama Queen

This happened quite a while ago when Kylie was only 5 days old. From the day of my delivery up until Kylie was 5 days old, I felt this pain in the lower right part of my abdomen. At first, I did not mind it as I thought it was just a normal pain due to my delivery. But as days passed by, the pain became worse. My mom-in-law was so concerned and suggested that I need to see a doctor. She said it could be "appendicitis".

So together with Jay-ar, I went to the hospital where I had given birth. It was a sunny afternoon of May 1. Since it was holiday, only the general/family doctor was around. I was so ignorant about how serious illness the appendicitis is that I even suggested to the doctor that I might be suffering from it. The doctor pressed the lower right part of my abdomen and asked me "does this hurt?" I said "yes" and I think I exaggerated my facial expression a bit that he assumed that I was in so much pain. Then he came up with his diagnosis and he told me "yes, this could be appendicitis". After that, he told me that I need to be confined for 2-3 days because I need to be operated on the same day. I was so shocked hearing that. I did not know that it was that serious! The doctor explained to me that if it is indeed an appendicitis I was suffering from, he could not afford not to let me go through an operation. That was the only time I realized how serious it is. I told the doctor that I cannot be confined because there is a baby waiting for me at home and that I am breastfeeding her. But the doctor insisted that I must be operated. Then I started crying in front of him and kept on repeating that I cannot do it because my baby needs me and then I cried and I cried and the doctor was consoling me, which lasted for few minutes. Jay-ar was so tough that he told the doctor that we will do what needs to be done.

When we went out of the doctor's room, I was still crying and the other patients waiting for their turn were staring at me thinking what could my illness be. Even until the time when Jay-ar was taking care of my confinement, I was sitting at the waiting area and still crying. I think the doctor was also thinking I was overreacting because he kept on telling me that it will just be a small operation and that many people had gone thru the same procedure. Well, I thought so too. Blame it to PPD. But I had valid reasons to be upset. For one, I had just given birth 5 days ago for crying out loud! My body was then still recovering. Another thing, I was crying because I was thinking of my 5-day old baby girl. I will not be with her for 3 days! For me, that is unbearable. Even though my mom-in-law was there to take care of her, I still felt sad knowing that I won't get to see her for 3 days.

Naturally, before any doctor would cut anyone's flesh for operation, they need to be sure that they are doing the right thing right? And I will not let myself be operated solely based on the verdict of a family doctor, who did not do anything but to press my abdomen and see if it hurts. The family doctor referred me to a specialist who will carry out my operation who, fortunately, was just around the hospital doing some operation.

It was around 6 pm that the specialist doctor was able to see us. He said I need to be CT scanned so we can be sure of what my illness really is. But since the department who will do the CT scan was closed that day, I was scheduled to have it the next day and I did not have a choice but to spend the night in the hospital. So to cut the story short, the next day, I had gone through a CT scan and they found nothing wrong with my appendix. And my illness turned out to be a UTI, which most women who had just given birth suffer from. No need for an operation and the doctor just gave me antibiotic that's safe for the baby because I am breastfeeding. After my CT scan, we just waited for the result then we headed home. I was telling Jay-ar on our way home that I had a big mouth. It was me who actually suggested to the family doctor that I could be suffering from appendicitis and I think the doctor just got worried that if I really had appendicitis and he let me go and my appendix burst, the blame will be on him that is why he really insisted for an operation. Good thing I have a medical card so we did not pay for anything and good thing I only needed to stay in the hospital for one night and one day.

And until now, Jay-ar is still teasing me about that incident - on how drama queen I could be! :)

On Motherhood

2 hours lang ako nag labor... No sweat diba? hehehe! Sa totoo lang 'masarap' manganak! Ang mahirap ay mag labor... Pero compared sa ibang mga nanganak na, mas smooth at mas mabilis ang labor at panganganak ko... Nung nag bubuntis din ako, no sweat din.. Walang morning sickness, walang weird cravings... as in parang wala lang, lumalaki lang chan ko... hehehe! Pero nung nanganak na ko, sobrang nag adjust ako sa pag aalaga ng bata. Maraming times na gs2 ko na mag give up at ibalik ang anak ko chan ko... I admit na may mga times din na gusto ko na sya itapon... hehehe! Ang hirap pala mag alaga ng bata. Lalo na nung mga first few weeks ni Kylie, nde sya hiyang sa gatas nya kaya lagi sya nag loloko... iyak ng iyak at di makatulog. Gusto lagi karga at may times na kahit karga na at busog, iyak pa din ng iyak. Nde namin agad nalaman na dahil sa gatas kaya kung anu anu pa binili namin sa kanya... Bukod sa baby bouncer nya, binilan din namin sya ng duyan na pareho nyang ayaw tulugan. Dahil gs2 nya lagi karga sya, bumili din kami ng baby sling carrier. Then nung na realize namin na dahil sa gatas pala at pinalitan namin gatas nya, nag sisimula na syang bumait although ayaw nya pa din sa baby bouncer at duyan. Pero at least ngayun pwede na ko umupo kapag buhat ko sya. Dati kasi kapag nangangawit na ko kakatayo kapag buhat ko sya, uupo ako at iiyak sya with matching padyak padyak pa... O diba, bratinela in the making tlaga. Hehehe! Pero as I have said, unti unti nang nagiging okay na sya...

Most of the time pag may toyo si Kylie, tino-toyo din ako at ang kawawa ay si Jay-ar kasi sa kanya ko nabubuhos ang mga toyo ko. Hehehe! Anjan yung mga dialogue ko na "first and last baby na natin to!" sa sobrang hirap ko sa pag aalaga. May mga times na naiisip ko unfair. Kasi si Jay-ar, nagagawa nya pa din yung mga bagay na nagagawa nya dati nung wala pa kami anak... Para sakin, wala masyadong nag bago sa buhay nya. Samantalang ako, hindi ko na magawa yung mga bagay na dati kong nagagawa kasi 24/7 na ko kay Kylie. May times din na nag wish ako na sana 2 tao na lang ako para nagagawa ko yung gs2 ko gawin at the same time, ako pa din nag aalaga kay Kylie. So can relate na tuloy ako dun sa dialogue ni Vilma Santos sa movie na "Anak". Hehehe! Siguro kasi sa pag kakaron ng anak, dapat hindi ka lang physically prepared pero emotionally prepared ka din. Pero ngayun, I wouldn't trade taking care of my baby for anything else. Mas gs2 ko nga ako nag aalaga kay Kylie kasi nagagawa ko kung panu yung alaga na gs2 ko para sa kanya. Hindi ko na sya gs2 ibalik sa chan ko... In fact, I don't want to live without her. Nasa sistema ko na sya. Lalo na ngayun, masarap na sya alagaan kasi marunong na sya makipag kwentuhan. Hehehe! Lumalaki syang lalong cute! Sabi ko nga sa post ko sa baba, mahirap na masarap maging nanay. Pero yung hirap, nabubura na at nagiging sarap na kapag nginitian ka na ng baby mo :)

Marami na din ako na acquired na skills. Bukod sa mga basic skills ng pag aalaga ng bata na automatic kong nakuha nung nanganak ako, may ibang skills pa akong natutunan. Dati nung wala pa kong anak, ayaw ko bumuhat ng new born baby kasi feeling ko mababalian ko yung baby... Nung nanganak ako, parang alam ko na agad kung panu ko bubuhatin si Kylie. Galing no! Ipinanganganak ng nanay yung mga ganung skills kasama nung baby nya. Hehehe! Eto ang mga iba pang skills na natutunan ko.

1. Nasanay na ko manood ng TV ng walang sounds
2. Gumagaling na ko sa pag compose ng kung anu anung lullaby songs
3. Lumalakas na ang braso ko sa pagbuhat kasi ayaw nag papalapag ng aking kylie
4. Natuto na kong matulog ng every 30 mins. Swerte na kapag naka 2 hours at jackpot na pag naka 5 hours na tulog.
5. Natuto na din ako makipag kwentuhan kay JR ng pabulong. hehehe!
6. Natutunan ko na din na mag iba iba ng modulation ng boses
7. Syempre anjan na din yung expertise sa pagpapatahan ng iyak
8. Buti na lang nde tlaga ako malikot matulog kasi mabilis ko natutunan ang matulog ng nde gumagalaw.
9. Natutunan ko na din gamitin ang mga paa ko pag abot ng mga gamit tulad ng kumot, remote, unan, etc. etc. kapag ang dalawang kamay ko ay buhat si kylie
10.Malapit ko na ma-master ang matulog ng nakaupo o nakatayo! hehehe

Ayan lang naman ang nobela sa aking experience "so far" sa pagiging amateur mommy. Sa lahat ng mga hirap ko na naikwento ko sa pag aalaga ng baby, nde ako nag sisisi sa pagkakaron ng baby kasi na outweigh ng sarap ang hirap ng pag aalaga ng baby. Lalo na kapag ganito ka cute ang baby mo :)

I don't need battle station but I do need help taking care of my cutie baby Kylie. She's so fussy but I still love her to pieces. Buti na lang darating na ang yaya next week. Haaaysss, mahirap na masarap pala maging nanay. And that's just cliche for you if you're not a mother. :)

Bukit Tinggi Trip

I had this conversation with Jay-ar's friend.

JF: Natuloy ba kayu sa Bukit Tinggi?
Me: Oo.
JF: Edi natagtag ka? Buong araw ba naman kayu mag lakad.
Me: Oo noh. Pagod na pagod nga ako kakalakad e. Kaya lang matindi kapit ng baby. Nde pa din lumabas.
JF: Ganun ba? Edi uminom ka kaya ng langis para madulas na ang kapit.

On a side note: I might give that a try kapag super desperate na ko. Hehehe! Joke!

I saw this from youtube. Natawa lang ako kaya I'm posting it here although am sure super tagal na nito.

Things I've Learned About Jay-ar :)

One of the things I enjoyed about Jay-ar's mom being here is that I have come to know things about Jay-ar that Jay-ar does not want to share with me. Why? Simply because I will use those info against him. Hahaha! You see, Jay-ar and I love to tease each other about each others bad traits, embarrassing moments, gross mannerisms and others. This is how we show affection to each other. And so, to Jay-ar’s dismay, whenever he’s not around for work, his mom will tell me stories about his childhood.

Can Hardly Wait!

Those people who know me closely know that patience is a virtue I do not have. I am a very impatient person (which sucks) and being in this "waiting game" is way out of my league. I want to give birth already! I want to see my baby already! I am bored! I miss my family! I'm having difficulty sleeping at night! And I am bored! (yeah, i intentionally repeated this one).

But then again, I want my baby to only come out when she's ready to be part of the earthling community. So yeah, I am a bit torn here or should I say confused. I want to wait but I can hardly wait!

Updates! Updates!

Last weekend was PC fair here in KL. So Jay-ar & I decided to go to buy a printer at para maigala na din namin ang mom nya. The PC fair was in KLCC and as usual, even though it was raining hard, ang dami dami pa ding tao shopping for gadgets.

Anyway, ang pinamimilian naming bilin ni Jay-ar na printer is either HP brand or Canon. Syempre nde naman kami masyado gagastos sa printer so ang balak lang namin bilin is yung cheapest na 3-in-1 (photo copier, scanner & printer). At first, syempre biased ako sa HP kasi I was working with HP and yung printer namin sa bahay sa Pinas is 3-in-1 na HP. But Jay-ar called his friend and asked him to check from the internet the reviews of the 2 printers which is better and he told us na mas maganda daw ang review sa Canon so we decided to buy Canon instead. Another reason kung bat mas oks din ang Canon ay mas okay ang freebies nila. Ang HP, watch lang ang ibibigay, which I doubt kung may gagamit naman nun samin. Sa Canon ang freebies ay hand towel, face towel and laptop bag, which is for me, more usable in our case. Meron pang isang freebie sa Canon na gustong gusto namin, which is yung trolley pero free lang yun kapag yung mejo mas mahal na printer (with fax) yung bibilin namin. Eh wala naman kaming phone line sa condo so sayang ang fax machine so pinilit na lang namin nag titinda na instead na yung towels and bag and freebies namin, exhange na lang namin sa trolley. Ayaw pumayag kasi bilang lang daw yun at each item daw may designated na freebies. Asar. By the way, yung trolley pala is usable kapag marami kang bibilin sa grocery at usable na din agad kasi ang laki at ang bigat ng printer so ang hirap buhatin. Kawawa naman si Jay-ar kasi sya lang pwede mag buhat nun.

Anyway, back to story... Binili na din namin yung printer kahit na ayaw ibigay samin yung freebie na gs2 namin. Pagkabayad namin, buhat ni Jay-ar ang mabigat na printer habang nakikipag siksikan kami sa maraming tao. Pagdating sa freebies claim area, ako lang ang humarap dun sa girl sa counter. Kinuha nya ang receipt ko to check kung anu ang freebies na bibigay nya sakin. Sabi ko sa kanya, kung pwede bang trolley na lang instead na bag and towels.. syempre ayaw nya din pumayag... di daw pwede. Sabi ko mahihirapan kasi akong buhatin yung printer at mabigat. Ayaw nya pa din payag. So inabot nya sakin yung freebies then aalis na kong luhaan. Hehehe! Tapos bigla nya ko tinawag ulit, wait lang daw. Apparently, nakita nya na buntis ako at inabutan nya ako agad ng trolley tapos sorry sya ng sorry sakin. Hehehe! Ang bait naman nung babae. Mataas kasi yung counter kaya nung mejo nakalayo ako, chaka nya lang nakita na buntis ako. Buti na lang dun ako sa babae na yun nakapila kasi yung ibang counter mga lalaki ang naka assign. Pag lalaki, walang pakialam sayu kahit buntis ka kasi nde nila alam ang feeling. Ibabalik ko pa sana yung bag at towels na una na nyang nabigay sakin kaya lang nde na nya kinuha at binigyan nya pa ko ng plastic bag para dun ko ilagay yung ibang freebies. Ayus diba. Ang bait.

Actually, ewan ko lang sa pinas pero dito sa Malaysia, pag buntis ka may mga benefits ka din. Yun yung lagi kang papa upuin sa train kapag tayuan. May mag o-offer ng seat sayu (usually mga babae tlaga) wala kasing pakialam mga lalaki. Mag pe-pretend pa yung mga lalaki na nde ka nakita or tutulog kunyari. Kakapal muks. Kapag sa pila sa toilet pinapauna din ako kasi buntis ako. Nakaka pasok din ako sa mga "Exit" na gates or pinto kasi malayo pag sa entrance papasok. Hehehe! Syempre kung sino kasama ng buntis, nakakapasok din. Pag papara naman ng taxi, ako pinapa-para ni Jay-ar para hihinto ang taxi kasi maaawa sa buntis. Kaya si Jay-ar nag te-take advantage sa pagiging buntis ko. Lagi nyang binabalandra ang malaki kong chan. Hehehe! E malapit na ko manganak, so mawawala na yung mga privileges ko na yun. Nung sinabi ko yun kay Jay-ar, ang sabi ba naman sakin, "dibale, malaki pa din chan mo nun pag kapanganak mo". Ungas. Hehehe!

Eto pala ang pics ng bago naming printer.

* * * * *

Last Saturday, I had a check up with my OB. Good news and bad news. Good news is that my baby is already full term and pwede na sya lumabas anytime! Bad news is that the head of my baby is still not engaged with my pelvis. Kailangan daw mag engage yun para sa normal delivery. Haaaayyysss... Excited na kaming lahat sa baby namin ni Jay-ar. Gs2 ko na din sya lumabas kasi uncomfortable na din ako matulog sa gabi at most of all, gs2 na namin sya makita.

Nag research ako sa internet at sabi dun na iba iba daw ang weeks kung kelan nag engage ang head ng baby sa pelvis. Minsan daw (mostly pag first baby), nag engage lang yun head pag mag le-labor na. Sabi ng OB ko mataas pa daw ang baby. Hay, parang ayaw lumabas ng baby ko. Lalo nya kaming pinapa excite. Lalo na si Jay-ar at tinutulak na nyang pababa ang chan ko. Hehehe! Gs2 na tlaga kong pa-anakin. So we have no choice but to wait, wait, and wait. Sinasamahan ko din ng walking every morning sa pool side ng condo namin kasama ang mom ni Jay-ar. I dunno if that will help pero walking is good naman tlaga para sa mga buntis. Oks pa din naman kasi ang due date ko naman is April 30. Although full term na si baby, meron pa syang until end of the month para lumabas.

* * * * *

As I have been mentioning above, andito na ang mom ni Jay-ar. She arrived here in Malaysia last April 1 and will be staying here to help us take care of the baby for 3 months. Marami na din kami na pag pasyalan sa kanya. We already went to Orchid Garden, Ikea, KLCC, Petronas, Bukit Bintang and malls like Midvalley Megamall, Pavilion, Suria and of course sa the mall (which is tapat lang ng condo namin). Hehehe! We are still planning to go to Bird Park, KL Tower, Petronas bridge, Acquaria, Genting, Butterfly park and more mall tours. Hehehe! Yung iba jan pupuntahan pag dumating na ang dad ni Jay-ar dito sa Malaysia sa June. Ako bantay ng baby habang pasyal ni Jay-ar parents nya. Sa 2nd week naman ng May darating ang mom ko at ang aking shobe at shoti dito sa Malaysia at kami naman ang papasyal. Si mom naman ni Jay-ar ang bantay kay baby. Hehehe!

Eto pala (so far) ang mga pics ng gala namin with Jay-ar's mom. Click here.

Just another thought, babae nga tlaga siguro ang baby ko, kasi masyado ko in love kay Jay-ar nowadays. Hehehe! Para kong nag lilihi all over again. And sometimes, it really surprises me on what one can do in the name of love. Figure that out. Hehehe! Ciao!

My Very Own Chocolate Cake

3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa butter
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup water

Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt in a bowl
Make a well in a center of the flour mixture. Add egg and sugar
Add vanilla and mix briefly
With a mixer running, slowly add the oil until incorporated
Add water and mix briefly
Batter should be fairly thick and a rich deep brown
Oil baking pan or use baking sheet (as I did) and place batter on the pan
Steam for 25 minutes in a medium high heat
After 25 minutes, let cool then serve

What's good thing about this recipe is that it does not require oven so this can be done by people without big oven like me (as I only have small oven). I have also melted a chocolate bar and make it as frosting on top of the cake. Then I decorated with strawberries, cake flowers and chocolate chips. If you can notice, I put stars on the cake with initials "JR" as I make this cake for him. Hehehe!

That's it and if you have time, you can try this recipe. Finish product tastes yummy and you can give it to your special someone like I did!
