Gift of Entertainment from IFLIX, PLDT and SMART

Since AskMeWhats became AskMeMom, there are only 1 thing I ask for: "TIME for Myself".
And that happens every time my son takes a nap or sleep at night!  I use that TIME for Myself wisely by enjoying my nighttime beauty routine, chat with my husband AND enjoy my favorite movies or series via IFLIX.

I can't count the times I watched Friends ---- that's my easiest stress-buster!  I find myself giggling in the dark trying hard not to make a sound.  Or watching chick-flick is another not to overthink and just feel good.  

When I got an invite from my Smart family in collaboration with PLDT Home and IFLIX, I knew something exciting (something I'm interested in) is at stake!  So I went there amidst my extremely busy schedule.

The event was hosted by the ever lovely and funny Bianca Valerio --> this girl is everywhere!  Don't you think?

Thank you IFLIX, PLDT and SMART for the gift of entertainment.
Now since we are on the topic of being thankful, I guess, I would like to insert something personal after seeing this video...

I have always been very vocal with my closeness with my mom but I haven't really talked much about my dad!  Well, our relationship was more like the typical traditional Chinese family.  The father works, the mom stays at home so I always tend to acknowledge my mom instead of "mom and dad" whenever I celebrate mini triumphs!  Watching this video is really a wake-up call on how my dad played a huge part on how I am today!  I may have accounted a lot of them to my mom but looking back, it was how he required us to practice writing every summer and have it checked every night he came home from work that made me such a disciplined "work-from-home-employee" that I am now!  

It was his strictness with our allowance that I realized pushed us to at least, work part-time to earn money so we can buy the things we like.  (Dude, Php20.00 a week!  Kaya niyo yan?  For commute ang naman because I go home to eat!  hahaha That was the year 90's by the way...still maliit pa rin as compared to my friends!)  It was how I never see him raise his voice and remain calm amidst various crazy situations at home that made me the calm woman I am now even at the most stressful state (well, except traffic! :P)

I can go on and on and on on how THANKFUL I am to have my dad, I may have wanted a different dad when I was younger but now, I thank GOD every night because he is the perfect dad for me!  I could never ask for anyone else!
What are you thankful for this Holiday Season ?
How does the video affect you?  
It affected me so much I inserted such personal matters here!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
