Tomorrow, the auction goes live. Please click the graphic icon below to take you to the www.ebay.ph/unicef site.
Everything has been about the auction… I’ve put so much work on hold. I hope you all take the time to set up an Ebay.ph account. It’s easy and free. You don’t even need to give your credit card number. Bidding will even be easier. And for this auction, you can pay by bank deposit or cheque. I hope you find it worthwhile to participate.
I’m very nervous about the auction. This is new to all of us. But I am confident about the items. They are beautiful. Meanwhile there is a storm coming our way. I thought that was it tonight. It rained and howled at around 7pm. Turns out that’s not even the storm yet. I hope Chedeng won’t be as bad as the forecasters say it could be on Thursday or Friday. We don’t need another catastrophe. I’m praying for the communities that could possibly be affected. Storms make me nervous.
Last weekend we stayed at Sofitel Manila (Philippine Plaza). It was the most perfect staycation for our family. Lovely hotel. Awesome service. Will blog soon. Beautiful weather. But on Sunday, just like that this huge dark cloud covered Manila Bay. It was surreal…
And this is what Alex did. He gave me nice bangs. When my kids picked me up at the salon, Sophia said, “Mom you’re so pretty. You look like Lady Gaga.” Then Lily said, “You look like us!” I think Soph was reacting to the red/burgundy lipstick I wore plus the new bangs. Lily probably meant I looked younger? Before going to bed Lily said I looked like Hanna Montana. I know their world. They meant them all as compliments.
I should go to bed. I have a big day tomorrow. Rainy season is here while spring is in full effect in Canada. This time last year we were home with my parents. I looked at my Flickr calendar and found these… it brought me home and made me feel peaceful.
I can’t believe it’s been a year. I miss the old life.
Folks, tomorrow morning I hope you tune in to ANC Headstart with Karen Davila. I will be on as a guest together with Vanessa Tobin, UNICEF Representative. We’ll be talking about the auction ofcourse, and also about the programs of UNICEF. I am so grateful for the support of media and the general public. It’s overwhelming.
