32 Things / 07

32 Things is a series of fun facts about me 
as I look forward to celebrating my 32nd birthday on September. 


WHEN IN DOUBT, CALL ME BY MY NAME!

I really appreciate that you are very comfortable in talking to me, my dear readers. To be honest, that is one of my favorite things about my being a blogger. You see, there are a lot of bloggers and digital influencers out there, who people just cannot virtually talk to because you know, they're so popular that they can't reply to every comment that gets published on their blogs. I also like that one of you even said that I'm very *responsive*. I was like, "yes, of course, I'm online so why would I seen-zone you? Right? :)" 

I'm not saying I'm famous and all but having 28 freaking thousand likes (as of this post) on my Facebook page is a huge thing for me (and the blogging industry, actually)! However, the beautiful people who comment and message sometimes call me "sis" or "mommy". In my past and at some point, it was okay with me. I thought it's a norm in the community. Now that it kind of gets overused, though, I have this awkward feeling towards it, especially with "sis". If you have called me that or mommy, it's fine but I would truly appreciate it if you will just call me by my name - Denise. Or D, if you want to be a bit more personal. ♥ 

P.S.
Case is different for my real-life sisters who can call me sis, of course. Hehe.
Glad, too that Sophia's new school now calls the parents Mr. or Mrs.

    1. Korek, parang Mommy Dionisia nga. HAHAHA! Yes please, D na lang. Or kapag super close na tayo, malay mo you'll be comfortable in calling me Bebeng na. Hehe. Although a lot of my close friends still call me Denise pa rin. Talagang yung family ko lang ang tumatawag sa akin ng Bebeng madalas. :)

    1. Yes, okay lang siguro yung sis sa church. But I prefer it na buo as in Sister Denise, just like how the old people in our church calls me. Yung medyo bagets, Denise lang sila. ;)

      "Sissy" is the slang version of sis.

  4. Plus it sounds COOL :) a shorter version of G.Toengi or J.LO ... you just D and nothing more. I love your BaonSerye ... for now I'm up to cookies/biscuits/bread and Dutchmill/Yakult and Juices too but I can't wait to do the full meal since my baby girl is still in Nursery. I'm sure she'll love the Food Pickers and hope to make her eat more since she's on her "picky" stage already. Please don't get tired. God Bless
