Before the interview which I brazenly volunteered for at her blog, let me tell you something about my blogging sis Mari. She is the first ever visitor to my blog way way back when I started out at blogspot, and I will cherish her always because of this.

And here are the questions she asked me:

1. Have you reached a certain point in your life that you can call crossroad/s? what did you do about it?

Oh definitely, and it wasn’t my annulment either as how I’d earlier thought, but found myself at a crossroads one quiet afternoon five years ago while sitting at a coffee shop at the Shangri-la Mall, when the man I was having coffee with suddenly said, “Well, since we’ve decided to try having a baby, shouldn’t we think of getting married as well?”

There I was, wondering whether to turn left, right, go forward or just plain retreat. I was living the life of a single mom, earning adequately for myself and my young sons, having seriously thought of having another baby with my boyfriend but without the bounds of marriage that I had just severed less than two years ago. A baby is one thing, but another husband? O diba eh di nawindang ang lola mo.

But I took his hand (figuratively ha, ang jologs naman ng literally) and started to walk the road with him. Haven’t looked back ever since.

2. Do you spoil your kids?

Every chance I get. Which is not often, considering the financial situation I’m in. But when I can I do. Toys, gadgets, their favorite food. Coke, ice cream, fries, mcnuggets.

3. Career moms like us try to maintain a work/life balance as much as possible: is there really a balance or would you consider this as an understatement?

I would like to think there is a balance somewhere, we’re just not earning enough to find it. 🙂 Moms always get calls at work from their kids asking this and that, making sumbong or just plain lambing, and at the back of our minds we wonder what we’re doing at the office when we should be at home combing their hair or feeding them. It will always be that way, whether or not we’re the sole breadwinners or we’re working to augment the family income. Mommy is the first word my daughter says when she wakes up (well actually the second word, the first one being “milk”). Can you hand me my balancing pole please …

4. What do you love most about having a partner?

You mean other than convenient sex? (Just kidding, Sam) Having him looking at me at the breakfast table and making me feel like I’m Sophia Loren in her bridal lingerie. Yeah.

5. In your opinion, should a marriage be spouse-centered or child-centered?

Spouse-centered, until the children wake up or come home.

so if you wanna be interviewed, here are the rules:
1. Leave me a comment saying “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

    1. Correct me if I’m wrong but I seem to remember you have three jobs. Why do you work so hard?

    2. What was the most difficult thing you had to endure when you migrated to Canada?

    3. When you were a teen-ager did you have any idea that you’d be where you are now, doing what you are doing? (Feel free to interpret this question any way you like 😉 )

    4. What do you think is the best thing that came out of putting up bisayabloggers?

    5. If you were to be given three days for yourself, to do anything you liked and not worry about having to spend for anything, where would you go and what would you do there?

    hi AYEZA.. still can’t post some comments.. the page was blocked.. actually, sa tanang blog hosts, wordpress lang ang wala mablock sa nestle.. that’s the reason why I created my own website using dabase and not XML (RSS Feeds) kay dili ko ka register sa blogspot,,travelblog, ug uban pang mala~ng mananap.. halos tanang sites na pang personals nakablocked (friendster,myspace,multiply)..

    haaayyy, dili ko ka-flood sa imong blog hahahahaha

  9. dodong cool, I highly recommend my webhost Bayanhosting who can help you get your own domain and very reliable wordpress hosting. If you have your own webhost you have full control over your wordpress blog and can theme it any way you want. You don’t even need a credit card, because you can pay them via bank deposit. (O ayan Dina, nag plugging nanaman ako ha …)
