Accessories and more

I have been hooked with necklaces lately , and i cant help myself but to browse online and look for some shopping finds. Last month i got myself a fashion jewelry that i plan to use to boost up a plain outfit like a classic tee and jeans. I am so in love with layered necklaces like pearls and chains. It looks hip and chic. Then I also plan on getting a personalized jewelry like a necklace or bracelet. The personalized one can be for daily use and i want to put initials of my kids. Dont you find it cute? Here is one that i really like ..

When i was browsing through the jewelries, I remember that I need to check for a Bridal Jewelry too . My cousin will get married this May and I promised that i will help her out with a beautiful and elegant pair of pearl earrings and necklace. Good thing there's always a site where i can get all that i am looking for, and of course, im getting it with the best price in the market too. Oh , a lady just cant get enough of shopping and accessories.

cutie shoes

Its so adorable!!! I want it for the princess, but sorry, Im kuripot nowadays so im not getting one for her Yet. Not YET. Not this time Hahaha. besides she has some shoes at the rack til she gets 1 :) I learned to control my shopping urge with Dominique because she grows FAST! As in super fast (though her feet is not that big , which is another excuse for shoe shopping). Anyway, back to the shoes, Tip Toey Joey is made from 100% soft leather , non slip rubber sole which is perfect for those early stages of walking. You can check their main site here. There's also a site at multiply that sells this brand. Click in here. Maybe I can settle with Robeez if i want soft leather since i tried it with the little girl already. Or maybe Pediped? OK , whatever! Looks like im making a wishlist already hahaha!

Im leaving you with a picture of the princess last Friday.

Birthday plans

My birthday is still next mnth , but as early as now , i am thinking on where I can bring my small family for a simple celebration . I have a lot of expenses already lined up , so I can only take them on where my budget would lead me Hahaha. I am thinking of staying for 2 nights in a hotel in Alabang since i have free hotel rooms voucher that I got from a friend. Then we can just go around the place for dinner. Hmm what do you think? Any suggestions for a really nice restaurant in the area?Of course, we have the kids , so it has to be baby friendly as well .

If only im not loaded with expenses, I would love to visit Bora or Bohol this summer. But that has to wait i guess. My parents and my sister will be home for a short vacation on November, so I am reserving those beach escapades by the time that they are here. It maybe a little cold na nga lang, but still, mornings and afternoons would surely give us a perfect weather by then.

She's 5!

Okay, its already 1:43 am at my laptop, so its officially March 27 ! My lil princess is 5 months old today! Look at her in these pictures, taken the other day..

** she did this on her own. mowdel in the making!*

** i know what you're thinking, is that a cleavage?? LOL*

The 2.9 Kilos baby girl has gotten so big! Last week she's already 8.3 Kilos , and as her pedia told us, that weight is good for a 9-month old baby! She laughs and giggles a lot and enjoys playing with his Kuya, I wonder til when would that be. LOL. She moves around the bed now, and lifts her butt in her attempt to crawl. It seems only yesterday that I had those sleepless nights when she was a newborn. This is a sign that I better look for insurance rates as early as now.

Happy 5 months of your life lil girl!! We love you!

DSL service

Internet is one thing that I cannot live without. Eversince I discovered the power of internet, it has really served it's purpose for me. Aside from research, I use it to earn extra online and of course, I call my family at the other side of this planet for free. Imagine, we talk everyday using the internet , plus add to that we use a webcam so we can see each other while we communicate. Everything was made possible because of VOIP or the Voice over internet protocol. I have big thanks for this technology because it makes the world smaller. We can reach out to our family easily , at such a super cheap cost. I recommended this to my cousin in LA since he wants to get in touch with us too and some of his friends around the world. He already has a laptop , so he is looking for an excellent DSL service. I recommended Spectrotel to him since its the one my sister is using and she's not having any problem at all. Still, I asked my cousin to Read excellent DSL Service reviews from Spectrotel, a telecommunications company that offers excellent services. I think they have promotions at most times, not to mention the great connection service they have. Find out more about Spectrotel here.

Summer Escapade

The heat is on! Summer is here at my side of the earth. As much as I want the kids to enjoy swimming at the garage, I just can't do that everyday because I fear that they might catch some colds. But still, i give them a good bath even before going to bed to feel refreshed. This time of the year, I am planning for a summer trip for our small family. Aside from the local spots here where the beaches are just adorable , hopefully we can visit the French Island of Corsica. Who wouldn't want to spend summer holidays in Corsican cottages?

I have seen thru pictures about the magnificent beach and landscaping that they have. They have private cottages for rent that can accommodate a small family at a good rate. Self catering holidays in Corsica are becoming popular nowadays because a lot of people already discovered the beauty of their place. I have also seen Porto Vecchio Cottage and the wonderful and breath taking view around it. Most villas are facing the beachfront and this is really what I am looking for in every beach vacation that we have. The villas has 4 rooms that can accomodate 8 pax. Good option for a bigger family, Hopefully we can have a really wonderful time this summer with the kids.

The title is actually the opposite of our weather now in Manila. Summer is here! I need to empty my memory cards since the weekends of summer are jampacked with outings and trips. Photo overload once more. I also need to have some memory upgrade at our desktop since i still store some of our pictures there. Anyway, here's a little something I found at Yen's site. Hoping that the COLD topic will make the temp here a little bit colder hahaha.

1. What’s your favorite frozen heat-and-eat food?

: Pizza :)

2. How sensitive are you to cool temperatures?
: I loooove it. My boy is asthmatic and his not on his best during summer so id rather have cold temp here. I love it that i dont sweat a lot even if i keep on moving :)

3. How many ice-cube trays are there in your freezer?
: 4

4. What aspect of your life seems to be frozen in place?
: after college days

5. What’s your favorite blanket like?

: Super soft , and comfy.

Insurance Talk

I have heard lately from the news that some insurance companies are closing down due to the financial crisis that most countries are experiencing. But still, I am confident about the insurance that I have for my family. It is one investment that me and my husband started out when we had our first born. Luckily, unlike some other insurance companies, our investment is still in good hands. If you were to ask me, i would still consider having an insurance because there are still a lot of insurance companies that are standing firm amidst the crisis. I guess you just have to be keen in choosing where to invest your money and always read all the terms and conditions that they imply. I have yet to do more research regarding insurance since i'm not so knowledgeable on this matter.

Litratong Pinoy - Alahas

Ang kwintas na suot ng aking anak sa larawan na ito nung kanyang unang kaarawan ay kwintas pa ng kanyang ama. Oo, kwintas pa ito ng aking asawa nung sya ay bininyagan. Ito ay binigay ng aking byenan na babe nung mismong araw na bininyagan din ang aking anak. Sadyang ito ay isa sa aking paborito dahil sa kakaibang alaalang binibigay nito . Ang kwintas na ito ay may 30 years na .

Believe it or not

The little boy took this picture of the princess the other day using our DSLR. I have a picture of him from my cellphone holding the big cam. I think he will love photography too.

** finally, something thats within the frame. totally not bad for a first timer huh **

That afternoon, I was planning to take some pics of the kids when I received a message from my mom telling me about this big Sale that she saw in a commercial. Of course, the shopaholic in me strikes again and I checked it out. After a few minutes, I heard the sound of the camera clicking, and I saw my boy taking some pics of her sister. Nice! I grabbed my cellphone that has a very low camera quality (it takes forever to capture a pic , goodness!) and took pics of my boy holding the DSLR. Luckily after the nth time, I was able to capture it blurry lang nga * sigh* I wonder what's wrong with that phone. This is why I need a point and shoot camera! Hahaha!

Anyway , These pics are unedited :) I am planning of having it printed in a bigger size than the usual then I'll have it framed. You know, for sentimental reasons, I find it really nice to share with the kids someday.

be safe

Anyone here who knows where can I buy some safety equipment for the house? We are doing minor repairs and we just noticed recently that we lack some materials for safety. It is better to invest now on these type of stuff for the house since it is one's safety that is at risk. anyway , just leave me a message if you happen to know where can i find the best deals. For now, i need to go back cleaning up my emails. I have tons of unread ones, and that was months ago, mind you. Maybe i should start deleting unwanted mails the day it enters my inbox.

hey princess

She really has grown BIG :) I am so thankful that even if she had a mild case of reflux during her first 2 months, she is recovering well from it. She still has reflux episodes but it's not like before that she would throw up her milk after a few minutes of drinking , and its like 2 tbsps of milk intake ha ! Imagine how many times do i change her clothes, burp pads, sheets etc in a day! Whew! Good thing she has lot of clothes LOL.

Anyway, its summer here in my part of the world so I got her a white cotton sleeveless top on Twilo, its half the original price so there's really no way of letting it go. And of course, leggings!!! Hahaha. Im a sucker for this one so i got her a brown one with tiny pink heart prints. Cute!!! By the way, I also has a reason for that leggings, she has an allergy with insect bites Specifically mosquito bites, so I try my best to protect her legs. More on that topic soon. I still need to look for a lingerie costume, my cousin needs one for the party she's attending next month.

Litratong Pinoy - Bag

Ang aking bag. Regalo ito ng aking asawa.

Oh no!

I tried fitting myself into some of my old clothes last weekend, and I am glad that some are good for casual wearing already. But still, some wont simply fit. I think Im really gonna be needing the best diet pills so I can achieve my desired figure. Its soo hard to lose weight now, I dont know but I always eat more even if im tired. I guess its because Im losing a lot of calories and energy everyday , so my body gets everything it needs from food to keep me working and active too. I need to get serious when it comes to diet and exercise. I only have a few months left to achieve my goal , or else, Im forever stuck with this figure. Yay!

she's 4 months old!

My princess turned 4 months old last Feb 27 . We just had spaghetti and cake to celebrate her day. Here's a few pics. Look closely , something went wrong ...

It was the daddy's fault. The cake says 3 Months! LOL. I asked what went wrong, and he said that he was too busy checking out the Ferrari parts at a magazine while he placed his order. oh well.

Anyway, have you seen the big brother? There's no candle actually, he just loves to blow even if there's no candle at all. Oh, it's a frozen brazo de mercedes cake from Aggy's, its our favorite :)

She's getting bigger each day , and prettier! She's one happy baby.

When I was young, I remember how my dad was so fascinated with coins. He collects coins from places he has been and until now , everything is well kept. Over the years those coins has higher value already. Now that he is at US, he collected a lot of coins already, but there’s a coin that he still wants to have, that he saw online. He wants to collect some rare gold coins . I am helping out my dad with this purchase because he doesn’t have an idea of how to do it online. Wow! This will be another addition on his collection. Maybe i should start investing on coins too. Its value will surely appreciate in time.
