I can relate and sometimes I don't like being ninang at all kasi yung iba, they don't ask me first. Automatic na sinasabi, ninang ka pala, nakalista ka na! And since it's bad to say no, I say sure or don't say anything at all. Even if I stay silent, ninang pa rin ako.

Usually lang, ang purpose nila sa pagkuha ng ninang is to have as many gifts during Christmas. And when they see me, they ask for gifts. Kakaiba.

Naku ako 12year old  ako nung unang nag  ninang ako sa cousin ko.lol ..ayun naging ninang din ako nang bayan kada may manganganak na kakilala ko kahit hindi close kinukuha ko. Pati mom ko ninang nang  bayan din.. hehe.. Ngayon naman iniisip ko magpapabinyag  ako and ang dami kong ninong and ninang im not into gift naman kasi hindi ko naman madadala yun im  out of the country  kasi kami. Hindi kasi pwede na ilan lang madami kasi akong  friends close na cousin kaya baka magkaselosan.kaya ayun no choice ako. Pero true nga na yung iba ginagawang negosyo talaga. 11 na ata ang  inaanak ko pero take note 20year old pa lang ako.

FOr me there's nothing wrong about it. I don't really mind even though I am not a catholic, excited pa nga ako lalo na pag sa mga close friends ko ako mag ni ninang.

Ang kinaiinis ko lang minsan pag di ko naman mga ka-close yung kumukuha sa akin, like neighbors lang na ni hindi nga ako binabati kapag nakakasalubong, or yung talagang di ko ka-close.

Minsan kasi feeling ko lang, kaya nila ako kinukuha dahil sa may trabaho ako at regalo or pamasko lang ang habol nila at ginagawa na nilang negosyo yung bata.

I can relate to this, sis.

Last year, may kumuha sa akin na ninang ng anak nya. Ayaw ko talaga kaya lang since mas takot ako sa bad luck, hinayaan ko na lang.  ;D

Hindi ako naka-attend and nakapagbigay ng gift kasi I am abroad. Hindi din naman kilala ng family ko ang parents ng baby kaya hindi ko sila mautusan na bigyan ng gift. To be honest, ayaw ko din talaga bigyan ng gift kaya hindi na ako nag-effort. Nararamdaman ko kasi na "gift" lang ang habol nya kaya nya ako kinuha na ninang.

Yes, I am right. Si mother ng baby, there was a time na hindi matigil kaka-PM sa akin sa YM at laging napupunta ang usapan sa "regalo mo sa baby ko!?". Asar! Lagi na lang. Buti sana kung close kami, matatanggap ko na joke yun pero hindi.

What I did, never ako nagbigay ng regalo sa bata. Now, the mother doesn't communicate to me at all.

Ayokong maging mean sa bata pero the mother needs to learn her lesson.  ;)

parang negosyo na ang pagkuha ng ninong at ninang ngayon. Madalas pag December na, dami ko nang nakukuhang text na "ninang merry christmas po". Hala, 2 yr-old pa lang inaanak ko nagtetext na?  ;D ;D Ang nakakainis don eh twing Christmas season lang nila ko naaalala (naaalala nung nanay ng bata) LOL!

Ugali ko pa twing Christmas, personally ako nagpupunta sa mga inaanak ko to give them gifts. Ayun nawili yung mga nanay at pag hindi ako nakakapunta, hinahanap ako. Well I will not do that ever starting this year. In the first place, dapat mga inaanak ang sumasadya sa mga godparents nila right?

agree ako sis, though sa akin naman yung super ka-close ko talagang sinasadya ko puntahan para makamusta...pero yung mga halos hindi ko kakilala, bakit naman ako mag eeffort puntahan?

UPDATE: Nadagdagan na naman ng isa ang inaanak ko today at sa December meron ulit. ;D

Yung bininyagan today, anak sya ng pinsan ni hubby. All along I thought na si hubby lang ang kukunin nila tapos nagulat na lang ako nung dumating ang invitation na ninang pala ako. Naisip ko lang, super dami na ng mga godparents ng baby nila tapos dinagdag pa kaming dalawa. Tapos alam naman nila na di kami makaka-attend dahil may work si hubby at malayo pa. Hmmm....negosyo. ;D Pero sorry na lang sila dahil gamit ng baby ang gift namin at hindi cash.

Yung sa december, sobrang ok lang kasi the baby's parents were close to us.

God has given us the greatest gift of all. And that is you, Baby Matthew! :)

Pag hindi ko ka-close ang parents ng bibinyagan, most likely, hindi ako uma-attend ng binyag. Hindi din ako nagbibigay ng gift. Ayoko itolerate ang pagnenegosyo nila.  ;)

If no choice at kakatukin talaga ako sa bahay, I'll make sure na material gift ang ibibigay ko. Hindi pera.

Haha! Aside from nakakainis --nakakapagtaka at nakakaloka. Even those people you hardly talk to can ask you to be a godparent to their child. I was asked na mag-ninang sa anak ng kapitbahay namin na hindi ko naman ka-close. We hardly speak --neither a "ha" nor "ho."  :o Just funny. But his son is cute tho, so gora!  :)

Yah sis, tama 'yun. Material gift rather than money, ganyan rin ako.

I consider myself as ninang ng bayan where I live, like yong bahay namin napapaligiran nung bahay ng mga inaanak ko so pag pasko wala ako'ng lusot hehe.  The funny thing is, yong unang inaaanak ko lang ang talagang um-attend ako sa binyag, the rest I sent my proxies na lang, tapos hindi ko sila kilala lahat. Sometimes I would bump into one of my "kumares" and I would only realize we're kumares kapag binati nila ako ng "Hi Mare".

Amen sister! the nerve talaga ng iba na kumukuha ng ninang kahit alam naman nila na hindi nila talaga ka-close yung gagawing ninang.
masama nga tumanggi pero naguiguilty ako minsan kasi hindi nga ako tumanggi pero wala naman sa loob ko yung pag ka ninang kasi naiinis lang ako. hehe so next time, i will find the courage to say no na talaga  ;)

question naman mga sis, since usapang ninang din naman to, and i think it's good to ask people with a lot of inaanaks :)

pwede mo pa bang kuning ninang yung nanay ng inaanak mo? may naririnig kasi akong sabi-sabi dati na pag ganito daw parang nagsolian kayo ng kandila.

siguro ngayon nasa 9 na yung inaanak ko including one on the way this coming November. In fairness naman most of my inaanaks are close friend, relatives or anak ng mga kababata ko kaya ok lang. Pero hindi naman ako extravagant mag regalo kasi nung maliit pa salary ko tig-200 worth of gift yung mga inaanak ko. Ngayon tig-300 na. hehe :D Usually puro gamit binibigay ko kasi ayoko masanay yung mga parents na pera saka aminin na natin sa parents napupunta yung pera di sa bata.

If ever I'm going to have a kid someday, I plan to get my close friends and relatives like what my mom did to me when I was young. Kahit na malayo yung mga relatives namin pag get together naman kahit di magsabi parents ko nag aabot sila or "bumabawi" pag nakikita ako. Di naman nag rremind parents ko about sa pagbawi kumbaga initiative talaga ng mga ninong at ninang ko na bumawi. Tapos ngayon sila din nag pprisintang ninong at ninang if ever daw ikakasal ako. :D

Paso ako dito! I have 23 inaanaks na pala :o Baka madagdagan pa till December '10.

Very true..ginagawang negosyo ng ibang parents ito. Nakakalungkot.

Inis ako sa isang kumare ko. Sobrang kulit as in! Kada-bday ng anak niya, nagpaparinig about sa bday cake & balloons, sagutin ko na raw! Every Christmas naman pinapasyal iyong anak niya sa house para "magmano at manghingi ng gift." Buti naman sana kung talagang close kami 'no! Kaps talaga!

Another thing that I do to disappoint this "business minded" parents, ang nireregalo ko minsan cheap gifts na talagang kailangan ng bata. I don't care kung walang something to remember factor. I don't want them to remember me just because of the gifts that I'm giving.

Example:

Underwears
Pulbo, Shampoo, Cologne, Baby Oil, etc. SET (J&J Products)
Towels

ang nakakainis, ni hindi man lang marunong mag thank you! ang daming modes of communication:  sms, facebook, email, ym, etc.  more than twice already na hinatid ko sa bahay nila ang regalo tuwing pasko.  no acknowledgment kung natanggap ba. di bale, wala ng next time!  >:(

^Nakakarelate ako dyan, sis!

Ako nga pinadala ko pa sa province yung regalo nila, walang confirmation kung dumating ba yung gift or hindi. Nasa abroad pa ako, kumontak ng mag-aasikaso sa Manila, at magpapadala sa province nila. Para na lang sana sa effort. Nakakaloka!

Well, yun na ang last christmas gift na nakuha nila from me!

Konti pa lang inaanak ko kasi bata pa ako. Pero hello. Almost all of them i don't know. As in di ko kilala kahit parents.. Si mommy lang kilala. Kapag pasko lang pupunta samin. Ang medyo off lang, meron akong isang inaanak. Bata pa. Pero pag namamasko siya, buong barangay yata kasama. Eh wala pa ako work, di pa nga ako graduate eh. Di ko naman sila kilala personally, sana maisip nila nakakahiya naman. At mamumulubi ako. Haha
I like games well played :)

Update ulit:
15 na po ang inaanak ko!  ;D Yung last post ko, 10 or 11 ata sila. Parang may di pa nga ako naisama sa bilang ko eh. Mabenta talaga ako sa pagni-ninang.
