I Think This Is Me

Hello there

I'm Lizee. I’m a proud mommy to a 5 year old boy named Alden and a  2 year old toddler called Alva.

I am also the wife to a charming and good looking guy called Alex (he made me write the second descriptor) and we've been married for six years.

We first met 11 years ago in a small, suburban school where we both served as teachers. Hubby told me that it was love at first sight when he saw me at the basketball court, the first day I reported for duty in school. Since then, he's been totally smitten. I know that sounds sickeningly corny but I just had to record those facts here - in case he forgets how it all started. I do apologize if you suddenly have an uncontrolable urge to throw up. 

I teach English for a living and have been in the profession for 11 years. At the moment however, I'm on a 3-year study leave in Christchurch, New Zealand. I try to juggle between my role as a wife, mommy and student every single day. I must tell you, it isn't easy cos my motivation fluctuates from time to time. Why do I tell you this? To help you understand why I write about the things I write. 

I started this blog in November 2008, inspired by my friend Carol and my sister in law Debra. After reading their blogs, I wanted to have my own site so I could be part of the blogging community. I had nothing much to do when I first came to NZ so I figured it was a good idea to write about my experience in a new country. Since I was pregnant at that time, I also wanted something to divert my attention from pregnancy blues and   some other complications which are too complex for me to put here. Needless to say, I fell in love with blogging and have been hooked ever since. 

I have a wonderful relationship with my parents, my brother and my sister. They are my support system and I am so blessed to have them as my family.

Random stuff about me

Like most women, I love shopping. I don't need a reason to shop; I just do it. I go for clothes, shoes,  bags,  make-up, perfumes, jewellery, note books, cute little scrunchies, nail polish...well, you get the idea. I can go on and on but I really don't want to get too excited *having shortness of breath*.

I am terrified of cockroaches and other crawly creatures in the insect category. Before getting married, I told hubby about my phobia and made him promise me this:  I shall protect you from cockroaches/bugs/insects and other crawly creatures, big or small, regardless of time, day and condition.  So far, he has kept his promise.

I have a sweet tooth and I absolutely love chocolate and pastries. My greatest weakness is smoothies with ice cream.

I love watching Lost, Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girls, Desperate Housewives, Chelsea Lately, Keeping Up With the Kardashians (yeah, that stupid show) and other TV shows that have these criterions - humour, good script and/or beautiful people.

If I weren't a teacher, I'd probably be a beauty therapist. Or an interior designer. Or a make-up artist. Or a hairstylist. Somewhere along those lines.

I love dancing to Latin music but I am no Shakira. I took some dancing lessons before coming to NZ but I had to stop half way cos of work commitment. My unrealistic dream is to be able to dance the salsa with my husband on our 10th anniversary. He doesn't know about this yet.

I am short sighted and I depend on lenses everyday. I think it is among the best inventions ever created.

My favourite pizza is Hawaiian.With extra cheese. 

My show size is 7. 

As you can see, I've run out of things to talk about. So I'll stop here. I hope I didn't waste too much of your time. Thanks for dropping by :)

I'll try to explain ah Kay. BC Bloggers was initiated by Paula - Mommy Diary. I came across her blog while bloghopping across a few mommy blogs last month. Stuck at home with the pox kan, so byk masa la.

She created this BC Blogger Membership thingy to provide an avenue for fellow bloggers to get to know each other, exchange links etc. So the BC Blogger Party is meant for the members to socialize and break the ice. Mari ka join. The more the merrier :)
