Rings, symbolic of wedding bands and engagement.

The Greeks and the Romans gave rise to the traditional marriage bands and engagement rings.
A ring symbolizes a complete circle, no break or it is a continuous circle. No matter what reason it brings, the purpose of wedding bands and engagement rings is to express ones deep emotions of our ever faithful love and happiness, and eternal commitment.

I had my wedding ring in 24 karat gold, looked nice in my fingers, but too soft and fragile to wear all year round. I feel like its melting when I cook, I had to keep it or else the shape of the ring could get worse.

For those of you who have plans of getting a wedding band or engagement ring, an 18 karat gold is the best gold for rings, strength is good and not too bright to look at.

June is a popular time for weddings, but December is the next popular month to say " I do "
Christmas is in the air and so does weddings in December.

When did you have yours?

Dawn Mass starts tonight

Days will be numbered starting tonight and oh! days will pass so fast and it will be Christmas
day. It is the 15th of December but in the village where I live, dawn mass will start tonight at about 7pm. This is a good time for those who leaves home for work early in the morning , even students can hear the mass and complete the novena till Christmas day.

I remember when I was a lot lot younger and my mother brings me to the dawn mass at 4am.
wah, getting up in a cold morning was hard, I end up half awake in the church but goes wide awake when I smell the Pinoy delicacies as puto bumbong (purple rice cake steamed in bamboo moulders)
and bibingka (another kind of rice cake baked under and over a heat from a clay stove with charcoal) Yum!

Anyone in love before they get into college?

How strict should parents be on having their daughters and sons get to be romantically committed?
Is there a best time parents have to allow them? Some of you have gone through this experience, and some of you have teens who are now into a relationship? Mommy's out there who may read this, didn't you feel troubled to find out that your kids especially your daughters are now into a relationship? Please share what your insights are, your experiences and your advices. I know we can't be hard on them, but nor can we be so complacent. We want our daughters overly protected and we do not want them to plunge into something they will be sorry for later. Please leave your comments here to ease a troubled parent.
