Angela's 5th Birthday

Like last year, we held Angela's birthday party at school. Few months back, I already told her teacher that we will be shouldering their Christmas party's foods and loot bags. But due to my busy schedule I forgot to follow up on her about the party and was surprised when they collected money na for the foods and everything else. Nahiya tuloy ako kay teacher. Good thing I already ordered cupcakes and cake from Cat of Tazzy Cakes. Forgive me kasi I don't have a decent photo of the cupcakes and cake. I was help-less started that day.

That's the rainbow cupcakes while still in the box.

Here's the birthday girl with her Barbie-themed cake.

Sobrang mabilisan lang lahat kaya hindi ko na naayos yung cake. I wasn't able to taste the cupcake but mom said it was delish. Felow mommies and Angela's teacher asked me where I bought the cake. It was lovely daw. I told them hindi lang mukhang masarap yung cake but talagang masarap sya. Of course, I told them it's from Tazzy Cakes. :)

We have clowns during the party. They were ok. Medyo luma na mga jokes nila pero nag click pa rin naman sila sa mga bagets. 

Here are some of the photos during the party.

That's my lovely daughter all grown up. :)

The next day, her real birthday, I promised her pizza and pasta. I had the pizza delivered from Shakeys and I cooked the spaghetti. 

Yes, that's the same cake. Nakalimutan kong magdala ng knife sa school, so hindi ko sya naishare sa lahat. Hindi ko sinadya yun, promise! Lol! :)

Hindi ko na rin naayos yung presentation ng food kasi gutom na lahat. See the hubby? Nakapwesto na agad. Hehe. We had a simple celebration but I'm sure that Ate had so much fun.

How are you guys?

I know I broke my promise of blogging often now that I can easily do it with the mobile app. You see, I am very busy with the house chores because guess what, my two maids left us again. The younger one went home to the province and she's never coming back. Her reason: she'll be attending her cousin's wedding in January and needs time to prepare. The other one said she's staying but I don't know if it's true. She went home for Christmas and promised to come back yesterday. Until now, no text messages and no calls. I don't think she'll be returning any soon. And besides, I had a very bad experience with her last week so I'm not sure if she's worth keeping. I guess I have to let her go, too. :(

Ok. I'll stop there. I don't want to be sad. 

So how did you spend Christmas? Did you have fun? Well, I spent the Christmas with the whole family. My mom came 3 days before Angela's 5th birthday. And my in-laws arrived on the 24th. It was a happy chaos. Sure it was tiring, but the love and goodness were overflowing at our household! And that's the spirit of Christmas. It's not about the glamour and gifts. It is the season of love, forgiveness and goodness of heart. Having that said, we opted for a simple celebration last Christmas eve. We attended the mass the next day and here are the kids fooling around,

My mom and mom-in-law posed for the camera as well,

That's the Imus Cathedral behind. I don't have any photos of myself, I just realized. :(

Anyways, we went home after and started cooking again. We prepared Bihon Guisado, Pancit Canton and Spaghetti. Bongga ang birthday ni Papa Jesus. :) 

So that's it pansit! Today is the last workday for 2013. Yehey!

Let's welcome the new year with new hope and with a blast! See you around mga mars! :)

Raising a toddler and a pre-schooler... very very challenging!

I seriously have no idea how mommies having 3 kids and more manage to keep their sanity intact. I now have a higher regard to all stay-at-home-moms. I have read a few blogs and articles comparing or if not, questioning how being a jobless mother complains of exhaustion after a day. Thinking it is easy peasy to stay at home and manage a household AND look after the kids. Oh yeah, sounds really fun. But you have no idea how tough it is!

Oh, I have equal respect for working mothers. Although most of us have someone to look after the kids those time that we are at work, it doesn't make us less of a mother. The responsibilities and issues are all the same. Nothing less.

I have mixed emotions now that I have two kids. I am (most of the time) elated by their innocence. Their warm embraces immediately erase my worries. Their wet kisses here and there warm my aching body. Their laughter sets my mood. And the list goes on and on....

But along these happy moments, there are also tough times. There are endless running, shouting and whining. The whole house could be a complete mess in seconds. Toys are scattered everywhere. And then there's sibling rivalry and jealousy. This is difficult. My two daughters get along pretty well early this year. Angela didn't show any signs of jealousy until the past few months. I don't know how I wasn't able to notice it early on. Would I have prevented it if I've known earlier? I'm not sure. But I am certain that the love and attention we're showing them are equal. But I guess sibling rivalry is normal. Besides, their issues are pretty petty at this point. I just have to guide them along the way and be more attentive this time. I don't want them hating each other at the end.

Let's see if I'm doing right on raising my kids;

1. I try to spend equal-alone-time with the two kiddos. Just so I can show to Ate that I love them both equally. This has been her issue all along.

2. I say NO to both of them. Although their needs at this point are very different, when it comes to playing and other stuff, when it's "NO" to Ate, it's also a "NO" to the Little Girl.

3. When I play with the Little Girl or Ate, the hubby plays with the other one. So that no one will ever feel jealous of not getting attention.

4. Sunday is Family Day. It doesn't necessarily mean that we need to go to the mall or eat out. Sometimes cuddling in our pajamas the whole day is more fun for the kids. Or it could be watching their favorite movie over and over again.

These are just a few of what I've been extra conscious about lately. Motherhood is a continuous learning process. That is certain. No one could ever be perfect in this field.

Anyhoo, I'm crossing my fingers praying that I'll be a good mom to my kids. Good luck to us mommies! =)

Rest day Sunday

I am totally useless today. Normally, Sundays are spent cleaning the bedroom and the closet. But today, I spent the whole day lying in bed. I actually started feeling a little off while we were on the mall yesterday, but since I didn't want to dampen everybody else's mood, I tried to manage the headache. I also noticed small red rashes on most part of my body since Friday. Luckily, it didn't worsen. 

Today is different though. I woke up feeling normal despite the throbbing head. Until we came back from the church, my left eye suddenly became blurred. I can't explain how it happened. The next thing I know, I can't read a single word because everything seems to be floating and moving. Initially, I felt scared and paranoid. But after googling it, I somehow felt relieved. This could be just the migraine or the astigmatism I've long been suffering. Well, that's what I wanted to believe. I don't want to be so negative about this headache and blurry vision, just like what the homily is today. There's nothing to fear because I have a big God up there. I'm keeping my faith up and above all these pain I feel right now. :)

To end this post on a happy note, I will soon be posting the new experience I had in the hubby's province when we went there to celebrate his 30th. Oh, he reminded me last night about it. 

R: Nai-blog mo na ba yung birthday ko?
Me: Naku, hindi pa!
R: I-blog mo na.

I guess I have a secret follower. He denies until now that he reads my blog. Hehe.

Saturdate with Fambam + An early Christmas gift from the hubby

We just got home from the mall and the kids are now asleep beside me. Two things, I can blog and I can sleep early tonight. Yehey!

Since the trip to the mall was really unplanned, super duper napagod ako. If I have known na magmamall kami, sinama ko sana yung yaya ng mga bagets. I know you, mommies, will agree with me. Ibang level ng kapaguran ang pagmamall with kiddos in tow. Di ba? I was whining to hubby after 4 hours of carrying and running after my two kids. As in nakasimangot na ako sa pagod. Buti na lang hindi ako pinatulan ng lolo mo. Hihi.

While we were there, we also got the chance to see Hello Kitty. She has a meet and greet scheduled today, lucky us!

The kids were so happy to see Hello Kitty! Pati ako tuwang tuwa! Hehe. 

Maliban kay Hello Kitty, did you know that there's a Christmas Sale in SM MOA? I guess most of the malls are. Pero nagulat lang ako kanina kasi yung sale ng SM MOA eh nasa SMX Convention Center. Bongga di ba? No, we didn't go there. I know, sayang. Di bale, may next week pa naman. For sure until Christmas na ang mga sale na yan. Plus, we had an early Christmas shopping two weeks ago. 

How about you mga mare, ready na ba ang mga gifts? Hubby bought us our gift kanina, reward namin for ourselves this year. He bought a new TV for our bedroom. Yehey! The old TV will be transferred in the kids room. His cousin is staying there now. As I type this post, our new Smart TV is running in the background, no, not that we are excited. Lol!

One more thing, I think I will be mobile blogging more often now. The hubby gifted me with iPhone 5s. I know, right? He's the most awesome hubby in the whole wide world. ;)

That's all for now folks! See you MORE often!

Writing Poorly

Below is taken from the book of Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover.

So write.
Get your thoughts down.
Let it rest.
Let it marinate.

Then edit.

But don't edit as you type,
that just slows the brain down.
Find a daily practice,
for me it's blogging every day.
And it's fun.

The more you write, the easier it gets. 
The more it is a flow, the less a worry.
It's not for school, it's not for a grade,
it's just to get your thoughts out there.

You know they want to come out.

So keep at it. Make it a practice.
And write poorly, write awfully, write with abandon and
it may end up being




Now I don't have to be afraid to write everything down. Just like what it said, it may end up being really really good. =)

Keep writing folks!

Anderson Cooper Giggles

We've seen enough of Anderson Cooper for the last few weeks when he was sent to Tacloban City to cover the distraught caused by Typhoon Yolanda. We've known him to be the guy who wears a grey t-shirt and who appears to be really really serious. And apparently, he's the one who threw our very own Korina Sanchez off the track.

And so, I was happy to see this video (when a cousin of mine posted this on her FB wall) and discover the other side of Anderson Cooper. Go watch.

Isn't he adorable? =)

1st Family Staycation: Acacia Hotel Part II


Despite the hearty dinner the night before, we woke up ready to face the buffet breakfast that awaits us at Acaci. We are a family of early riser, so catching up the breakfast spread isn't a problem to us.

The Little Girl waiting for her brekky

I mentioned in the first installment of this staycation that my family lives a simple life. While we have eaten in hotels, formal gatherings and classy restaurants, we still find it a little awkward and we're actually too shy to put foods on our plate. Ang corny namin no? Lol!

munching on her bread
look at the Little Girl's face..funny!

Happy Tummy = Happy Baby

But somehow we were able to fill our plates with various foods that morning. As expected, R's plate was full of Filipino cuisine. He's a big eater so he filled his plate with heavy dishes. While the kids wolfed down their usual brekky of fried rice, eggs, tocino, sausages, corned beef and orange juice, I went continental. Hehe! Arte arte lang. Pero hindi, when the kids didn't finish their plate, I consumed the left overs. Don't judge me. Ganyan naman talaga tayong mga nanay di ba? Or is it just me? =)

Unlike the Little Girl who would sit still for a photo or two, Angela was all over the place so I didn't have a decent photo of her. Tsk! Tsk!

running walking pushing

After munching on too much food, we decided to head back to our room. Alam na! Lol! The hubby wanted to lie down for a while. Inantok ulit sa sobrang kabusugan. Haha!

The two kids wanted to go back to the pool but I decided otherwise. Killjoy mom lang! I'm bad, I know. I let them bathe in the tub instead while I watched TV. Happy na rin sila with that. =)

Our staycation ended with everyone smiling from ear to ear. We should be doing this more often, nakakatanggal ng stress. Overall, we had fun at Acacia Hotel. And sure, we're going back!

After checking out

Happy Wife

Right after my love-hate letter to my husband, I received a text from him:

Daddy: I love you mommy... sorry

Ayun naman pala! I replied right away that he's forgiven and I love him too. =)

See guys? Don't allow your pride to take over your relationship with your wife. It will only make things worse.

I'm one happy wife! Yehey!

Dear Husband

Dear Husband,

When things aren't well between us and if you are fully aware that it's mainly your fault (I'm being one-sided here, it's my blog anyway, so go ahead, write your own blog, bwahahaha), though your kisses are well appreciated, saying "SORRY" is another thing.

Despite the kisses we shared this morning, I'm still giving you a silent war. There's nothing wrong with acknowledging your mistake, it won't make you less of a man. Until then husband.

I never loved you less.

Your Wife

On my Unplanned Blogging Hiatus

I know I made myself a promise to take blogging (a little) seriously. Because honestly, since I started this humble blog of mine, anxiety attacks became less. Woohoo! Writing indeed helps.

I still haven't shared the last installment on our Acacia Hotel staycation but I promise to finish it soon. I am the laziest person on earth when it comes to transferring photos from cam to pc. Shame on me! Lol!

Moving on, it's good to hear that the distribution of relief goods has sped up for our kababayans in Visayas. Seriously, I had several sleepless nights hoping and praying that they soon find light and comfort. I just couldn't ignore my emotions that the hubby banned news at home. Hehe. Anyways, I'm done with the negative thoughts.

As the Philippines stood firm amidst the chaos caused by the typhoon, here's a positive thought to get us by:

Happy Monday folks! Let's keep the faith! =)

A Prayer

Dear God,

Our country has not been spared from all kinds of turmoil; war, fire, flood and earthquake. We've lost quite a number of our countrymen and a lot have been badly hurt. Homes, schools, buildings and churches were also not spared from all these. For that, we humbly ask you Almighty Father to look after those affected by these calamities and we pray for their healing and fast recovery.

Father, may they find comfort in your words and see light through the compassion of others. May they learn to let go of the pain and embrace the promise of a brighter tomorrow. Bless them Lord God with more wisdom and strength so they may obtain the answers to their questions. Shower them with love so they can see reasons beyond the agony. And let them find light in the darkness of night.

Heavenly God, may you give your guidance to those in Bohol, Cebu, Siquijor, Nueva Ecija, Zambales and Zamboanga, that they may be able to stand firm as they go on with their lives. May they hold-strong on to their faith as they take one step at a time towards better days.

1st Family Staycation: Acacia Hotel Part 1

I did the right decision on booking our very first family staycation at Acacia Hotel. I chose to use the coupon I bought from Deal Grocer (one of the group buying sites that are so IN right now) 2 days before my birthday. There couldn't be a better timing than this.

My small family is not used to grandiose living. (Kaya talagang pinag ipunan ko 'tong bakasyon na 'to. And it's all worth it!) That's why we were really amazed with everything that this hotel has to offer. From the concierge, to their majestic receiving area, down to the smallest details in our room. Everything is PERFECT!

The kids feeling at home

They just can't sit down

Meeting new friends

The Little Girl exploring The Lobby

The two kids loved the bed. I could simply tell from their smiles. How I wish I could take this home!


We walked and walked around the room. I simply couldn't believe my eyes that we're actually staying here for a night. I may sound OA to some of you mga mare, pero this is my first time (as much as I can recall) to stay in a 5-star hotel. Pagbigyan nyo na ako. We're cheap like that. =)

Upon entering the room, they started checking out everything

Complimentary tea and coffee
Complimentary water and more

Bath soap, body wash, shampoo and conditioner

The bathtub where the kids stayed most of the time

Safety deposit box for our valuables

We rested for a while and headed out to the pool area so the kids could swim before we hit the mall for dinner. Angela was in heaven. Tuwang tuwa ang bagets. It was the first time that I knew she didn't feel scared of the water. Before kasi, she'll just sit on the corner and play with the water. But now, she was freely swimming walking around. Nakakatuwa! She's all grown up! =)

The happy hubby

Feeling shy at first

Originally, I didn't plan to let the little girl swim with her Ate. I know I just can't allow her near a water in the afternoon, much more in a breezy afternoon. Yun kasi lagi ang nag ttrigger ng cough and colds nya. I don't want her to get sick again. If you've read my posts here, here and here, you will surely understand my hesitation. Pero I couldn't deny her either the joy that I'm sure she'll experience once her little feet touched the pool. Oh boy, I was right! She was ecstatic the moment she felt the water beneath her. Such a lovely sight!

After the short but sweet time spent at the pool, we took off to the nearest mall. Since the hubby was in full vacation mode, we decided to maximize the hotel's services and asked for the shuttle to take us to Alabang Town Center. Feeling turista lang. Haha.

Initially, I wanted to eat at Yakimix kasi I'm sure Angela will enjoy the desserts but the hubby didn't want to since it is a Saturday. We agreed to eat at Fridays instead. Should I've known that there's a big crowd of UAAP fanatics inside, I'll decide otherwise. Not that I hate basketball or UAAP, I just want a more relax atmosphere for the kids. Well, nanay na nanay lang ang peg ko. Lol!

After dinner, we had a short walk and then headed back to the hotel. Upon walking inside The Lobby, balik agad ang pagka feeling turista namin. Lol! There's a live jazz music being played there every night pala. Sosyal! The hubby whispered to me that he wants to stay for a bottle of beer but when he realized that we have kids in tow, "next time na lang pala, bhe". Poor guy! Next time it must be just the two of us. Sorry kids, Dad and Mom needs some quality time alone, too. =)

I was a happy mom when I closed my eyes. I was so damn sure my hubby and the two kids had a good night sleep, too!

She was all over the place

She can't get enough

The happy Ate before hitting the bed be continued

Day 3: Learning the art of letting go...

October 2, 2013

...letting go of the clutch pedal, it is. =)

For the last 2 days of my driving lesson, the clutch pedal has been my worst enemy. I had a hard time mixing it up with the gas pedal. It is always either I release it too quickly causing the engine to die on me or holding it down too much that the car wouldn't move an inch. Plus, I was very scared to hit the gas pedal thinking that I might hit someone if I do. I know, I know, I am too naive.

Don't get me wrong mga mare kasi I know I mentioned in my previous posts that I did great. I said that because I was able to survive 2 hours on the road without hitting someone or someone else's car. And to think that I survived EDSA and C5 is really a big deal for me.

On my last day with Smart Driving School, Clifford was the assigned instructor for me. He was the exact opposite of the two previous instructors that I had, Aris and Lito. He was witty. I knew that the moment I took the driver's seat. Kaya I can really say that I was relaxed and comfortable the whole time. Sabi na nga ba, hindi ko pa rin matimpla timpla yang clutch at gas na yan. Yun pa rin ang comment that I got that time. Pero he helped me with more techniques. He was patient enough to tell it to me over and over again. Hindi ko alam kung matigas lang talaga ulo ko or matigas lang talaga ang ulo ko kaya hindi ko makuha kuha yun. Paulit ulit lang. Lol! Anyways, I made sure naman na before we ended the day, I was able to apply everything that he taught me para hindi naman ako mapahiya, di ba?

He took me to the narrow streets in Mandaluyong. Maganda daw yun para maging familiar ako sa size ng sasakyan ko. He also taught me how to park in between cars. Ay sus! Madali lang pala! Chos!

All in all, I had a wonderful experience with all of them. Iba iba talaga sila ng style ng pagtuturo. Ang bottom line lang talaga is, yung magiging diskarte na ng driver sa iba't ibang sitwasyon.

Did I learn from the 6 hours I had behind the wheel? I think, yes. I gained confidence. A lot of it. Am I ready now to take my own car to the office? I guess not yet. I can't see myself driving alone along EDSA. Hehe. But soon, I know I will. =)

Happy 30th Birthday to ME! =)

Life has never been this better.

Thank you Almighty God for all the blessings! =)

Day 2: Learning the proper footwork

October 1, 2013

Image Source

As I've mentioned in my previous post, the instructor find my footwork awful. So to prevent more catastrophic event on the engine, I did my homework. Although I didn't practice on our car, I practiced on the floor with my imaginary pedals. If you could only see me, I'm sure you'll have a good laugh. Lol!

Lito was my instructor that day. He was as serious as Aris. Ok, not as serious. He can manage a little smile from time to time. I guess I just made them nervous with my driving. Lol! =)

A little snippet from our conversation:

Lito: Ma'am, ilang taon ka na ba?
Me: 30 na po, Sir.
Lito: (Looking bizarre) Talaga? Mas matanda pala ako sayo. 33 na kasi ako. Matured kasi mukha mo, Ma'am.

Toinks! At mukhang seryoso sya sa sinabi nya, hindi nya kasi binawi. Loko yun ha?! =)

We went to the same area like the first day. And I was more comfortable with my driving moves than before. With lesser unexpected stall from the engine, I was pretty happy with myself.

He taught me how to park the car, diagonal and parallel parking. Though we ran out of time to learn horizontal parking, I know I have more than enough new learning that day.

Lito told me that I can already do long distance driving but I need to practice more if I want to bring my car to the office. Which is why I took the class. I detest the terminal. I now hate commuting to and from the office. It sucks bigtime!

After the 2nd day of my driving lessons, I can pass as 7 out of 10. That's me grading myself. Lol!

Day 1: Driving Lesson with Smart Driving School

September 30, 2013

I came giddy and a little nervous to St. Francis Square last Monday for my first day of driving lesson. I didn't know what to expect kasi. My mind was filled with questions like: "What would my instructor look like?", "Will I whack someone else's ass while he/she cross the street or hit a car along the way?", "Can I do it? Really really do it without my husband with me?"

The ever beautiful Shane, the receptionist, introduced me to my instructor that day, Aris. I was happy to see that the car assigned to me that day is the same car that we owned. Confidence improved my mood and nervousness left my system right away. Until it was my turn to drive, it came back even stronger. Haha! Ang yabang ko pa naman to tell the instructor that I know the basics of driving when I can't even make the car move an inch. Nakaka-pressure naman kasi ang lolo mo! Although he didn't shout at me, I can feel his disappointment everytime the engine dies on me. I kept on saying sorry and sorry. Hehe. The instructor was good. The student, that was me, was bad in following instructions. Yun lang yun. =)

We drove around Ortigas area, went out to C5 and Shaw Boulevard. I was relax half the time and fidgety the other half. Over all, I think I did good naman. Considering that it's my first time to drive here in the metro. Pagbigyan nyo na ako. *Wink

I didn't hit someone or bump a car. I learned what I should learned that day. Although he left a comment on my assessment form that says I need improvement to my footwork, I still deserve a pat on the back for a job well done.

In a few days...

..just a little bit more, I'll be hitting the big 3-0! Oh, yeah! One more year, wala na ako sa kalendaryo (pero nasa lotto pa rin naman, lol).

I thought of 30 before as the age where wrinkles start (this could be true to others though), grey hair multiplies fast (Oh, that's me. Well, mine is hereditary.) and skin starts to age (as in kulubot levelz). OA lang pala ako. Because I didn't feel old at all. Yes, I have matured. Time made me wiser. 29 years of life's different episodes made me tougher. Trials gave me learnings. Memories, happy or not, made my life colorful and meaningful. But I am definitely not old.

I am happy with what my 29 years have turned out. It wasn't perfect. Way beyond perfect, I must say. I was traversing the wrong road when I was younger. I fell hard. I made silly mistakes. I was almost at the brink of losing everything. But with prayers and proper guidance, I gained my sanity back, thanks to my ever supportive mother and relatives. Now, I am wiser and tougher. I am proud of myself! *Slow Clap

I am looking forward to more years of bountiful blessings, happy memories, more kids (or just one more, a boy perhaps), more adventures and even more trials.

And I know I can never go wrong this time. I have a wonderful husband who will guide me all the way. He's turning 30 after a month, too. =)

Happy 30th to us, Bhe! =)

Red Kimono

The hubby never takes risk with his palate. Play safe yan lagi when choosing what to eat. Just like most of the men out there, he prefers homemade foods. Very typical lang talaga. Until he discovers his love for sushi and maki. Paminsan minsan kasi, he has no choice but to try other cuisine lalo na when I crave for them.

"SUMOSAM is the leading chain of Japanese restaurants in the country, founded and managed by 3 friends and top restaurateurs Raymund Magdaluyo, Ricky Laudico and Marvin Agustin." - from their FB page

We've been a regular in SumoSam because we love their sushi and crunchy makis. Kaya when we spotted Red Kimono in The District Mall in Aguinaldo Highway, we just have to give it a try.

According to their page:
"What sets us apart from our competitors is our modern and unconventional approach to Japanese cooking while remaining loyal to traditional elements of the cuisine. Ingredients are tweaked in order to create innovative dishes that taste and look amazingly appetizing and ensure that our patrons keep coming back for more." 
 I got myself California Maki and Prawn Tempura Classic Bento.

8pcs California Maki

Prawn Tempura Classic Bento

Red Kimono's serving may not be as generous as compare to SumoSam, I still love theirs kasi hindi ako nappressure ubusin yung food. I also find it cheaper in Red Kimono. Siguro dahil nga hindi ganun kalaki yung servings nila. Whenever hubby and I dine at SumoSam, we always have leftovers kaya sayang. While in Red Kimono, ubos talaga. =)

R got Salmon (or was it Tuna) Sashimi and Sukiyaki.

Salmon (or Tuna, I forgot LOL) Sashimi


And here's the aftermath.


Oopps! I shared my bento to R and I had a bowl of his Sukiyaki. We went home with happy tummy that day.
