To read is to see a vision of tomorrow; to know the patterns in the past, in the present, and what would happen next. To read is to see the beauty around. To read is tolive.Ronald Ferraris

Inspiring Song for the Day

I'll Stand By You by Carrie Underwood 

Oh, why you look so sad
the tears are in your eyes
come on and come to me now
don't be ashamed to cry
let me see you through
'cause I've seen the dark side too

When the night falls on you
you don't know what to do
nothing you confess
can make me love you less

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

So if you're mad, get mad
don't hold it all inside 
come on and talk to me now
hey, what you got to hide
I get angry too
well, I'm a lot like you

When you're standing at the crossroads
and don't know which path to choose
let me come along
'cause even if you're wrong

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
take me in into your darkest hour
and I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you

And when, when the night falls on you, baby
You're feeling all alone
you won't be on your own

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me in into your darkest hour
and I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you

Oh, I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you.

Very Classical - Pen and Paper

This image has a huge impact in my life. This I think would be the best to define who am I and what really is my mission to the world. I may hide the true emotions inside my own shadow, but now that a ray of light strikes through me, I am now ready to show my true passion and freedom and of course, the REAL ME!

The Number Five

What's with this number that I like?

Well, it's because I have been truly, madly, deeply in LOVE for five years now. Five precious and great long years of trust, passion, love, love, and nothing but love. I even can't recall the exact moment that we've started our courting stage. All I know is that he is my first and last, and we didn't wait for the love to spark, instead, WE DID SET THE LOVE ON FIRE!

Five years ago, I have a private notebook in which I wrote all the thoughts and emotions that crossed my mind. That was the time when I was so active in writing, that I almost didn't eat and I always sleep late. As I was reviewing my notebook again, I laughed out loud when I read all the contents of it. It was hilarious to know and to realize all the craziness that I have been through for the past years of my colorful college life. It was so youthful and innocent.

The first few pages contained all the essays, poems and short stories. Also included are my personal quotes and my so-called status update. And then I was amazed on the last few pages. In there contained some of the long lost memories of Rainier and I, five years ago. Suddenly, I began to reminisce.

On my note as it was written:

     September 20, 2007

          As of now, I have so many doubts in mind. Why did it have to be this way? It was so hard. 
          I have so many questions and I don't know why. Is it because of someone whose making a way into my heart out of nowhere? I am not sure if he's really that sincere to me or is it just a part of the show? It is hard to distinguish. It is hard to decide. This is the first time that it happened to me, and I should be happy for that. Finally, someone is appreciating me. But what am I thinking?

         1. Age Gap - I know that age doesn't matter when it comes to love. He's six years older than me. Bu it seems awkward when everybody sees us together. Especially when the height is considered. Oh come on! I think he is around 5'7" or above and I am just 5 flat. What if we'll be official? Are we will going to be fitted as lovers or father-daughter type?

        2. Our way of thinking - I am a teenager, who has many dreams. I am ambitious, and I love doing things alone. Since he is in his early thirty's, and is almost finishing his studies, what if he think of building a family soon? I don't know how to handle this kind of thing. I don't want to make mistakes. All depends on the matter of consequences.

        3. The impact to our families -  This is a hard one too. What if both our families doesn't agree on our relationship? What shall we do?

        4. Lastly, would he only make me cry? - I am aware that hurt in a relationship is there. But you see, I am just a kid. I don't know him very well and I want to tell him to slow things down. I want us to be friends first and know each other well before we proceed. But what if he accepts it, then he waited, then got bored, and finally decided to walk away from me? Gosh! What if I'm starting to fall in love with him and he fell out of love of me? 

       Hay! It's really hard to be in this kind of situation. Being in a courtship stage was really confusing and only gives me a headache. But, the truth is I am so happy. every time that he is making his way to me, I feel thousand of butterflies in my stomach. I feel so blooming and beautiful everytime our eyes meet. I just don't know why. Is it what they call love?
      I hope he won't ask for my answers again. Not yet. I still have to consult myself and God.

      But I think it won't take too long...I have a feeling...sasagutin ko na rin siya!:)

And that's what my first impression of love. I really had a hard time to decide. But to tell you, I didn't wait so long. I fell in love with him so madly that even myself couldn't explain. The feeling was mutual and I can't stand it. I wanted to tell him that I love him and I hope he'll say it to me, too. And so it was.


at Bagac, Bataan

Derived from my nickname, Anna and the first four letters of his name, Rainier.  I was actually speechless and overwhelmed about that night, when he told me that he loves me so much, and his eagerness for me to become his girl. I was like, "Who is this man standing in front of me, and has pursued me to love him back?" I never would have thought that moment to happen that finally, for the first time, I AM REALLY IN LOVE!
I had so many emotions that it only gave me a stomachache. I wanted to scream, laugh out loud, cry, etc. etc. I suddenly thanked the Lord for what He have given me that night. A very special night that would change the course of our lives forever.

Three years passed, so do our relationship, we graduated from college (I, with Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and him with Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering), we started to have a job, and finally realized that we wanted to take what we have in the next level.

Sealed with a kiss! - at our Civil Wedding in Caloocan City


As soon as I reached my 21'st birthday, we got married. We just had a simple yet intimate civil wedding with our immediate families and very few friends. I was so in cloud nine that time. Finally, from that day and forever I will be called Mrs. Chiradee Ann Fronda. I also saw through his eyes that he was happy too. Not only because we tied the knot, but soon we will be having the most precious gift the Lord would ever gave a loving couple - and that was our first child.


the first glance of innocence with our daughter Lindsay

Earlier that Saturday when I began to feel pain. My OBGyne told me that if I will begin to have pain, I should seek her immediately for check-up. There I was told that I was in 4 cm and could be admitted as soon as possible. But I insisted to go home first and wait a little more time before admission to prevent higher hospital bills. At 3:00 pm I told my husband that the pain was uncontrollable and he took me to the hospital which was luckily near by our house. At exactly 7: 10 pm, I gave birth to a bouncing 7 lbs. baby girl.

After two years of marriage, we are still in the process of the first few stages of building a family, which I thought is not just a piece of cake. Rhen and I, as a husband and wife should work hand-in-hand to support each other and make our relationship grow more, and as parents to our daughter, to give our best and 100% effort to make her life as beautiful as every children of God should have. We may be facing a lot of troubles and trials but I know in myself that the Lord has plans and He wants us to be more faithful and never let go of with Him. As a song says, "You bleed just to know you're alive.."


That stands for the 5 fruitful and colorful years that I am sharing my life with the man that I am building my dream family with, and the only one that I used to love and will love for eternity, through the eyes of many and through the eyes of God.

Lastly, as I always say on our every anniversaries...


I love you so much, Mahal!

Paint your life with a Rainbow and let the colors enlighten your soul!

There's always a Rainbow after the Rain!

...I remember that beautiful song title of South Border.

It was a really wet, wet, wet, week for a lot of us. Not just a wet but a floody week! And it always happen everytime a storm or typhoon hits us here in Manila or in any part of the country. This time calls for a "bayanihan" for most of the Filipinos, and it's such a great sight to see and feel the sympathy towards each other.

In the mean time, my family and I found ourselves in the comfort of SM Novaliches while Gener is generously blowing strong winds and rainpours across the Metro. I have to admit, we were getting tired of the rain and getting bored of the same old everyday routine we were doing for the rest of the week - eat, sleep, watch news, web search, eat, sleep again..blah blah blah...It was kinda boring! And then there's my darling husband who forced me to go into the mall with our daughter. Well, I have doubt in the first place because I thought it was not safe to go into the mall at that time because of the bad weather, but he teased me and I gave in!


My daughter as she chooses this cute blouse, and in fairness it nicely fits her. She looks gorgeous!
A perfect fashionista baby!

What a day of fun, food and nothing but fun!

Amidst all the disaster happened to all of us, may we still find light behind the dark clouds that covered us for so long. May we never lose hope and faith in God and may we keep the spirit of lending a hand to others, especially nowadays that more and more people are helpless. May we find time to share our blessings and love to them so that we can be a better people of our Motherland.

Hope we all be safe and sound, through God's words.

Celebrate Life!

Amidst all the trials and obstacles, don't forget to SMILE. Because a "Thoughtful word, a cheerful smile, can make everything worthwhile."

Welcome to me!

Hello everyone!

After so many years of doubt and confusion, I finally got my way down here. It was strange (which I admit) that I used to be afraid of making a blog of my own because I'm frankly clueless of what to include on my blog. I am a shy type of a person and expressing myself to people is such a pain-in-the-ass for me. I have so many words in my mind that want to burst but the problem is that my mouth wants to shut forever. Maybe because I didn't want to receive negative reviews or something. I just have to HAVE a CONFIDENCE, and now I am here!

A Happy Family

For my first time, I would like to introduce Me to You. I am Chiradee Ann Fronda. A young Mom of a cute 1-yr old daughter and a proud Wife to my dear husband. I am a graduate of the University of Caloocan City, Philippines with a Bachelor's degree of Arts in English (Batch 2008-2009). Basically, my course will fit me in being an Educator but I choose not to pursue it now (maybe I could find the right timing for that). Today, I am a certified-fulltime Housewife and I love it!

 I am proud to say that my name is "unusual" or unique. Unique because it is rarely used by Filipino households on giving names on their children. I asked my Nanay where did she got that name and she told me that she derived my name next to a Comic character named Chiradee, a princess with a curly hair. Although she didn't tell me other further information about that comic, I did a research about it. What I found out is this:

Written by Jim M. Fernandez Illustrated by Hal Santiago Aliwan Komiks
, 1986-1987  

It was the only picture and link that I found and I don't have an idea on what it was supposed to be. Anyways, whatever my name means and where it may came from, I am glad to wear it!

I describe myself as being a simple person with simple demands in life who lives in a simple world and wants to be surrounded with a simple environment. That's a lot of simplicity out there huh! I love to do things with less complications but with much creativeness. I am a reader but not a bookworm. I love to write anything (stories, poems, essays) but I never had the guts to publish it. I am the only audience and fan of me. I don't include myself on the circle of EMO people but I like to do things alone. I am afraid of what other's might say about me. I hate being on a hot-seat and the lime-light. I would rather make a star than to be a star. I am not a loner. I am just independent. 

But as the years pass, I have learned to step out of my dark side. I now want to be appreciated by many people and those who know me. As an Earth-Dragon girl, I have that spirit to be valued by teachers, colleagues and social people. I am a FRIEND FOREVER (I assure you that!) I love those who loves me and I love them too.

On a deeper side of me is a daydreamer. For all my life I have never fail myself to daydream. It is my sweet escape on this real world. I have lots and lots and lots of daydreams and I couldn't help myself building many more of it. That's what I want to share it with you peeps!
 I will be definitely work on my social prowess and give you the better and fun side of Me.

Thanks and nice to meet you:)
