just as expected

I gained weight .. from 123 to 129 lbs! What else can i do? Im almost 34 weeks pregnant and i just can't stop myself from eating rice and sweets (bad!) . I actually noticed that I am on the heavier side, because I easily got tired when we were at the grocery last Friday ( the first time it happened in this pregnancy. Never ako napagod sa mall ! ) .

Hmmm.. im thinking of a little contest in line with my pregnancy weight. I might announce it soon, so stay tuned!

No Bonnets.


** My mom got this in pink with brown combination **

** Butterfly Beret in white **

Babydoll will wear one of these as part of her going home outfit.. the sad part, it's still at my mom's place since she got this only at the stores last week. So she plans to have this shipped via the ever dependable LBC pouch that will arrive here in Manila in 7 days ! Woohoo! I cant wait to see a newborn in beret :)

Catch the news

Do you still have time at night to watch the news? At most times, I would just get a glimpse of our TV screen and hear a few details about the news, but I rarely sat in front of the television to watch. So how do I keep myself updated with all the events ? I read everything online. From the
latest political news , to simple current events, weather updates, I rely on what I see and read online. I can say, everything is accurate, and so fresh. It is there as it happens, unlike the TV news that is just aired at a certain time. I am not a big fan of politics, but still, i find time to be in the know with some of the events and news. So if you want to know the latest in the news at anytime, check out , you can read news from all over the world, in wherever region you may be.

At 33 weeks

From Babycenter..

How your baby's growing:This week your baby weighs a little over 4 pounds and has passed the 17-inch mark. He's rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and his skeleton is hardening. The bones in his skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for him to fit through the birth canal. These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.

Home Care

When my uncle got really sick of pneumonia last month, he had a hard time recovering and the doctors at the hospital suggested that he should stay at a nursing home for the mean time since my Aunt is a bit old enough to take care of him. My family helped my Aunt looking for one near their area, and they looked at some San Jose homecare listings . The location needs to be within their area of course , so my Aunt can see my uncle anytime he desires. My mom also helped out my Aunt in figuring out and deciding which one to choose. There's a lot of homecare in the area, but they need to get the one that would meet their needs and their budget too. Each establishment offers different type of services for their patients too. I do hope that my uncle will recover soon so he can go back to his normal life. These home care establishments are such a blessing, because with the busy life that they have there, they are guaranteed that someone is looking after their loved one.

Click. Click. Click.

Finally, I'll be seeing Ging Lorenzo on Oct. 4 for my maternity portrait session . I can't wait ! Im exchanging emails with her lately, and we haven't finalized the venue yet. Outdoor shots would be great because of the lighting, there's no way I am showing my belly, LOL!

After my very own pictorial at Fernbrook last week, I am so excited to have another series of glam mommy shots. As if!

My boys will join me of course! I just wish Joaqui will be in the mood too:) All for mommy's kaartehan syempre!

Getting Minimalist

It is just so hard to maintain a mess free living room if you have a toddler. Though we have a separate room for all of my son's toys, there are times that he would bring some stuff at the living room. I try to avoid his toys getting into this part of the house since we recently installed a new plasma TV with a subwoofer and speaker set. We are trying hard to keep a minimalist design at the living room as we all find it relaxing to stay there watching TV or just plain listening to music. We now have bookshelf speakers to go with our theme, and I strongly suggest this if you want to maintain your rooms elegance and neatness. The cables are all well kept at the back of the shelf, and it would be hard for you to tell that there's a speaker out there. At least there is something in our house that remains neat and tidy. We also placed a few of our books to go with the concept of our home. I do hope we can really mainitain this look even after i give birth which is anytime soon.

Litratong Pinoy - Puti at Itim

Narito ang 2 litratong nakita ko para sa linggong ito.

Una , ang sapatos ng aking anak na kulay itim na may kaunting puti. Isa ito sa mga bigay ng aking nanay sa kanya at gustong gusto nya itong isuot pang porma.

Ito ang pangalawa, Pagod na sya dito matapos maglaro ng basketball. Mukhang kawawa ba?

Maligayang Huwebes !

Litratong Pinoy - Ginintuan

Ang Sandals na binigay sa akin ng aking Ina noong Hunyo. Ito ay gawa sa plastic na kulay ginto at may mga palamuti din itong ginto. Masarap isuot sa paa, napaka komportable at hindi pa naman ako nadudulas pag suot ko ito. Ako ay isang babae na mahilig sa mga kulay gintong sapatos.
