Our Primary Love Language

Last week, a friend of mine shared an online quiz in which one would be able to know his or her Love Languages for his significant other.  According to the author of the book Gary Chapman, there are five key love languages among the countless ways we can show love.  These are the Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch.  Everyone of us has a love language and there’s one language that’s predominant among all others.

I took the test here and likewise requested the husband to do the same.  Here are our results:

imageThe result to mine is not surprising at all because I know that I’m more of the “touchy” type.  Here’s what Gary Chapman says about Physical Touch:

This language isn’t all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face—they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive.

All along I thought, the husband’s was Acts of Service.  So I was surprised to know that his is also Physical Touch.  Perfectly compatible, huh?

Anyway, take note that the lowest score we both have is the Receiving Gifts.  That only means that we’re both very easy to please, we’re not that materialistic and purchases of luxurious LV bags nor expensive Asus Tablet PC aren’t needed just to show our love for each other.  Simple, sweet surprises actually matter more for us. :)

Online Casino: His New Fascination

If you're going to ask my brother what's the smartest invention mankind has ever discovered, I'm sure he will answer in jest, the internet! He has never stayed online as much as he is doing recently. His laptop hasn't rested for ages now, I think. But before that he used to be addicted playing poker with his friends. They would hang out until the break of dawn in a friend's house and play all night long. It's their bonding session, actually. Because of sheer fascination, one time, he told me that his ultimate dream is to fly to Las Vegas. He wants to experience how is it like to play poker in one of the renowned hotel casinos and he said in confidence, that he will rake in a huge amount of winnings.

I just let him yak and yak...and feed his own mind with fantasies. It's free to dream anyway, right?

Seriously, I told him that he doesn't have to go to Las Vegas just to play poker and all those casino games that he fancies. He can actually play all of them right at the comfort of our home via the internet. An Online Casino is the in thing nowadays. Facebook surely has its application Texas Hold 'Em Poker but actually, there are other equally fun online casinos to play on. Check out an online casino review and see what I'm talking about.

Back to my brother, I was surprised when just days after, he was thanking me for being an "angel" to him..of referring those online casino listings. Now, he no longer goes out of the house but instead, he's spending most hours of his day in front of his laptop. He got his friends into playing their poker tournament on the web, too. They still hang out until the wee hours of the morning but just through this virtual thing. At least, we won't be worrying anymore, especially our Mom, during the ungodly hours thinking where he could be since he's right at our very home. The only downside is that, our electricity bill that has significantly increased.

Wedding Money Dance


The money dance has been a wedding tradition for many years now.  It is a part of the wedding reception program where guests get to wish good fortune upon their marriage by pinning money bills or dollar bills (thus, it’s also called the “dollar dance”) on their clothing as they dance.  This usually comes simultaneously after the couple’s first dance and the other traditional dances (Father-Daughter Dance and Mother-Son Dance).  Some find this practice tacky so they no longer include it in the program.  But for some, they see it as a tradition and it’s actually fun.  Any amount will actually do.  You need not pin huge amount of bills nor give rare morgan dollars.  The couple would surely appreciate the thoughtfulness and help as they start their married lives together.
