Nicco and Gabby

>> 8/27/2008

Gabby: Mama tignan mo 'tong drawing ko.
(Mama, Look at my drawing)
Mama: Sino naman yang mga dinrowing mo?
(Who's that on your drawing?)

Si Nicco saka ako!
(Nicco and Me!)

Magkamukha ba?
(Do they look the same?) LOL!


Talk it out here!

>> 8/26/2008

What can you say about the Obama- Biden tandem?

Is virtual talking an effective tool in expressing ones thoughts?

Do you really mind spending too much on buying healthy foods or you opt to buy cheaper ones but are not healthy?


Sleeping Beauty..

>> 8/25/2008

This is how Nicco comforts himself to sleep...

He would cover himself with pillows... and if when you try to take the pillow off from him he goes up and covers himself with pillows again.

Look half eyes open pa. and minsan tulo laway. ahaha

On Halloween Costumes

>> 8/20/2008

This week is Gabby's first summative exams and when she asked me to read her assignment notebook, there was note from her teacher that there will be a PTA meeting by next month and one of the things to be discussed is about their costumes to be worn on their Halloween party. Yes, as early as August all details about the programs are to be discuss already to avoid any delays most especially on Halloween costume safety which is very delicate due to props to be used and so forth including Christmas party and others. On their last year's party, her Halloween costume is so boring because I wasn't able to reserve the cutest one for her. This time she wanted a princess costume and a pink one to be specific. ahahaha. My daughter really do love princess stories nowadays.

I am now eyeing on this two princess costumes that I have found on

Gabby was so giggly as she saw this cute pink costume that comes with a tiara. She told me that this will look good on her. Good thing that it was on long sleeves because it is cold in their performance hall.

But i also like this blue Cinderella costume for her, The fluffy lower part really gives this dress a princess look. and this will perfectly suits Gabby well if it is to be paired with this

Cinderella wig... perfect right?!


The Longest Breakfast Menu List

>> 8/19/2008

A long overdue tag from Abie. thanks sis!

garlic rice and fried egg is always on our dining table every morning and i must say that it's a typical filipino breakfast right? you can pair it with beef tapa, ham, bacon,hotdog or sausage. plus a hot coffee..

*Start copy here*

Everyone likes to start their day with a comfort food for breakfast. What kind of food do you take? This would be a good way to find out your blogger friend’s favourite food for breakfast.

All you need to do is to put your name down, the country you are in and your favorite breakfast meal. Let’s see how we can have this breakfast ‘menu’ travelled all around cyberspace and learn what each blogger living in different country and what they eat for breakfast. This meme was created by a little lady with a penchant to spy around little baskets while marketing. Her favorite breakfast of the day is none other than Roti Prata, an indian flat bread. What about you? What is your favorite breakfast meal of the day?

1. Spymama, Singapore - Roti Prata 2. Janeth Vicy’s Life Journey, Philippines - Ham and Hotdog with Rice 3.As The World Turns, Philippines, Milk and Biscuits. 4.Just Me.. Eds, Philippines- Sausage and Egg with Garlic Rice/Fried Mash potato 5. KATHYCOT, Phils, Fried Spam, Chicken and Scrambled Egg paired with Fried Rice 6. Abie, Phils, Ham Sandwich with plenty of mayo and mustard 7. Dez, Philippines, Garlic rice with fried egg and beef tapa. 8Your Name, Country, Food

Online Games

>> 8/15/2008

Playing online games was never my hobby before, not until I got hooked up and ended up playing it also just like anybody else who spends most of their time on the internet. Just as I was trying to find out new and exciting games USA online casinos really caught up my attention. It is so much different from the games that I have played since I haven't got the chance to play and able to go in one of those casino hotels, it is definitely fun and exciting as I have checked on their site that there are bonuses with extra games to win! another good point about this free casino bonus is that they are the most updated online casino bonus among the others in web.

Who would have thought that playing the casino nowadays is so easy and can be done at the comfort of our home, but still got to have the same intensity and much more fun than being in those casino hotels as it offers more advantages technically speaking and game wise. The games offered varies every month for you to have a more enjoyable and fun filled online casino games, they got so many freebies to offer so you must definitely go and check out as they are the Best online casinos that you shouldn't miss out. Have fun and enjoy playing.


Sweet, Sour, bitter and Salty

>> 8/14/2008

Got a text message yesterday from Ian at 2:33 p.m

"Ma, my assignment si Gabby magdala daw ng sweet, sour, salty, bitter kinds of foods bukas. isip ka nga ng mga dadalhin niya."
so isip-isip....

eto na lang...

Oh so sweet Muffin...

maasim na sampalok

Itlog na Pula o itlog na maalat

bitter ampalaya

***kaninang umaga, walang ampalaya sa ref kaya wala siyang example ng bitter food, and dahil wala na din kaming itlog na maalat ito na lang ang pinadala ko .

Salty bacon

Nyay, I remember my Elementary days... And to think I didn't go through those pre-school years, pinasok ako ng Nanay ko, Kinder agad! ahaha.. Di gaanong complicated ang paggawa assignments, cutouts of pics lang ok na. haay, iba na talaga ang panahon ngayon. Sabi nga ni Gabby... "Ma, it's the real thing!"

With Nicco- it was an induced labor because they have seen on the ultrasound that the water level have decreased and it is no longer safe for the baby, right there and then after series of tests I was informed the need to give birth asap. and so we went home to get things and went back to the hospital, I came at around 3 p.m and gave birth at 5 p.m. I was prepared and relaxed as i was giving birth, the staff were amused because I was so behaved daw unlike the other patients they assisted. While at the labor room nakatulog pa ako and was awake only as i felt the contractions were already every 5 minutes in interval.

I am really good at every kind of household chores, I love to clean and it really feels so good after you see the outcome of what you did. doing the laundry and ironing clothes is not a problem to me... though it is really hard to wash all those pile of laundry without the help of a washing machine... this I can attest, for I manually laundry all our clothes with my bare hands... The only thing that I don't know is to COOK! Yes, i didn't say that i hate this but I don't really have the so called abilty to do it. In which I am Lucky to have my husband to the cooking thing... This, he calls himself the great cook. No doubt about it for he receive a lot of praise whenever they have a catering event.

No more Allergies

After 5 Long itchy days, thank God that my allergies are no longer bugging me. Baka napagod din sila sa kaka-kamot ko! Ayay... It's a good thing though I've been scratching those annoying red rashes on my flawless ( As If?! hehehe) skin, No marks of redness and wound was left. haay, another effect naman of the allergy is, I think I've lost some weight. For my food intake are limited. No oily foods, No eggs, chicken milk... Only veggies.. Ahahaha... I think I can go back to eating anything I want now... Or should I continue this as a part of my long overdue weight loss plan?! hmmm... That would be a good idea. :)


My Something Purple experience...

>> 8/04/2008

I've been blogging for 7 mos. now and I must say that It has been my comfort zone where I can freely express how I really feel. I also learn a lot whenever i blog hop. Seeing others' opinion & views in different way. Those SAHM Mom & Working Mom's who finds time to blog despite everything. Friendships blossoms through blogging, learning a lot from their posts. Seeing their family and sensing ones moods or emotions on their posts. Oh! What blog hopping can do...

And from hopping in from one blog to another, I stumble upon Something Purple's Blog. Where it really catches my attention for I find so many interesting topics and enjoyed reading her entries beacause palagi siyang updated! ahaha.. right there and then, I have been frequenting her blogs already. This is one of those first AWARDS that I receive from her. As I always tell her how I admire her multi tasking abilities ...err. powers pala to do all her obligations as a mom and wife, and also for being a diligent and impressive student! I am hats off to you Ems! Happy 4 years of blogging and looking forward to reading all your coming 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th +++ blogs! ahahaha...


Weekend happenings....

I just thought that it would fade away after taking the Celestamine, but right after taking my dinner last Friday which consist of dried fish and Pinakbet. Oh My, that could be the worst itchiness I have ever experienced in my entire life! Ahahaha. The doctor said that I shouldn't be drinking milk. No fish, egg and chicken for me as it will again aggravate my skin allergy.

Another Bad new is about the result of my trans-v ultrasound done last Saturday, They've found out that my Myoma is increasing in its number. Last July 12 they've only seen 2 Myoma, but it now increase to 5 in less than a month's time. And the cysts were also seen again. I will have it discussed with the OB Gyne this weekend. Hope things gets better...


My Allergy and Weekend TO-Do's

>> 8/01/2008

Just this morning, I brought along with me at the office this so that I will have something to munch in while I'm in front of the computer. I only ate 1 piece when I notice that I am already itching and there were red spots on my hands and by this afternoon it spread all over my arms and face. I immediately went to Mercury drugs to buy the Celesthamine tablet which is anti-allergy medicine. good thing that after an hour, the red spots are starting to disappear and the needle prick feeling is no longer felt.

  • trans-v utrasound again @ 9:00 am
  • pile of laundry
  • weekend review of Gabby's lessons
  • rest and rest some more...

Good thing the week is over so that I can have more time to sleep and rest... btw HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYONE!
