Model Search

Last sunday, my sister recieved a call from a representative from Great Image model search, saying that she made it to the first cut and has been invited to come personally for further screening....

My sister, misiaoh even made a excellent porfolio. I was speechless when I saw the portfolio... Maganda talaga! (To follow nalang yon...) Anyway, they all went there and lined up with the others. I am not sad that she didnt made it to the 24 finalists... but I am happy and proud that she went there and showed to the world that she has 'potential' hehehe! When they got home... she said she learned a lot from that experience. Well, this is just the beginning... eventually, we will learn a lot from the process, trials and experiences... but the best thing here is that she tried her best. I'm so proud of you... Go little sister!

Birthday kwento

It's hard to get free time nowadays... Became soo busy at work after Lanna's birthday. Pero sempre uploaded na mga pictures. I just never had the chance to post the link here. Daming pictures grabeh! Sabi nga ni malen, adik daw kami sa pictures... well, hindi naman masyado hehe... So here's my story...

~~I got out of the office @ 7 sunday morning... sad to say, but yes... may pasok parin ako that night... I got home around 8am. On the way, I was thinking to get at least 1 or 2 hours of sleep... para hindi naman wasted beauty ko db... but no. Once I arrived, I forgot to eat breakfast na coz the balloons are not inflated yet! I quickly, engaged myself with the morning arm exercise using the thing they used to inflate tires... pambomba ba yon? Buti nalang, I got help from the yaya. We inflated 100 pieces of pink medium size balloons in 1 and a half hour. Oh kaya nyo yon?! My mom tied them by 6 and placed them in groups sa living room... ready na yon. Ardey, her hubby and Amandine arrived around 9AM... mag sisimba na kase sila. Buti nalang nakapag simba nako the night before. Pinaliguan na si Lanna then nag bihis na sya. I showed ardey everything my mom and I bought... loot bags, prizes, pabitin, piñata, etc. Sabi nya masyado daw plain ang mga balloons... at yung mga loots bags, walang card. Oh no! Kelangan pa ba nun? She asked my sister michelle, to make a little thank you card for the loot bags then have it printed. So okay na yon... Inayos ko na yung baby bag ni Lanna then I slept na... Mga one hour lang yon... pero okay na rin kesa wala db. Revived narin feeling ko nun. Pag baba ko sa living room, nagulat ako! Lahat ng balloons... may sulat na! hahaha! Grabeh... Ang bait naman ng ate ko, inisa-isa nya lahat... pero it turned out A-ok naman! Talk about personalized....

Nag ready na kaming lahat around 2pm, coz we have to be there at least 30 minutes earlier... we have to set-up the place pa since we have everything nga. Pagdating namin dun, may mga tao narin pero konti pa. Pero sana wish ko lang mas maaga pa kami hehehe. Marami naman tumulong samin mag ayos ng place... nilagay na nila yung balloons sa chairs, sinabit na yung tarp, inayos na ni mommy yung mga loots bags sa harap. At sempre anjan na yung cake! Laking pasalamat ko talaga na pina-deliver ko yung cake. Inaayos na sa gitna yung cake... gosh! nagulat ako! malaki pala yung mabili kong cake... at ang ganda! Nung naayos na lahat sa harap... hay... ang ganda ganda tignan...

The program started @ 3:30 pm na pero okay lang... hindi naman strict sa oras yung venue eh. Okay naman lahat ng games.. lahat ng kids nag participate at nag enjoy... then early dinner was served. Nung malapit na sila matapos kumain, nag show na yung mga acrobatic clowns. They did a little magic trick, pero sempre sobrang fake lang nun kase para tumawa lang yung mga kids. Ang nakakatawang part eh yung mga acrobatic stunts nila... nakakaaliw talaga at ang galing nila. After that, nag pabitin nakami then the piñata... Dun ko lang nakita na ang dami pala naming nabili ni mommy sa 168 hehehe! Nag 2 games na kami for the adults tapos meron pa ring natira. We did the singing and blowed the candle... nakakatuwa. After that, we distributed the loot bags na. Buti nalang pina-pila ng host yung mga kids sa harap namin ni Lanna... then they wished lanna happy birthday one by one bago nila nakuha yung loot bag. Magandang idea rin yon, at least we know kung sinu-sino yung mga meron at wala. After that, nag distribute nako ng cup cakes galing sa cake. Yup! gusto ko talaga yung may cup cake kase para madaling ibigay sa guests. Sobrang sulit ang cake... maganda na masarap pa. hehehe!

Nag stay pa ng konti yung mga barkada ko from work. Hirap talaga pag konti lang ang time... hindi matapos-tapos ang mga chikahan... hehehe! All in all, total success naman ang party! Wish I could have invited more people pero hindi narin kakasya. Pero I'm glad lahat nakarating... from relatives to close friends. So sa mga mag pa-planong mag birthday jan, sobrang effective ng birthday list ko kase sakto ang food, sakto ang mga dala kong goodies, okay ang budget at wala akong nakalimutan.

Umuwi na kami agad para mag open ng gifts! (the best part! hehe!) Nag order nalang kami ng pizza for dinner... oo pizza naman! At nag order kami sa Pizza hut naman! hahaha! The best thing about being a mom is you get to open ALL the gifts! Pero sempre, with Lanna hehehe. Nakuha lahat sa video yung event. Nung tapos na kami mag open ng gifts, sakto paubos narin yung tape sa videocam. Grabeh! sobrang sakto talaga hehe..... SUPER THANK YOU!!! Sa mommy ko... for accompanying me sa pag shopping sa 168, sa pag ayos ng mga loot bags, sa pag sabit ng mga goodies sa pabitin, sa pag asikaso before and during the event. THANK YOU!!! Sa mga sisters ko... ardey for the tarp , jacqx for the ideas, sarah for clowns, misiaoh for the invites/banner/thank you card, Gelai for the video, and papsie for the financial back-up hehehe! THANK YOU!!! Kay daddy Bonnie at mamu Edna--kundi sa kanila, walang party hehehe, kay Atty. Jen at Atty. Jo for the time at sa mga paghatid sundo kay Lanna, at kay Jun2.

Dati.... puro debut... then weddinng... tapos binyag.... ngayon naman BIRTHDAY PARTIES na... ang bilis ng panahon... Congratulations sa zitros--it's another sucessful party!

My Little Fairy

I was preparing our stuff last friday... Nakita ko yung binili namin sa 168 last christmas... a pair of fairy wings with matching headband and wand. Nung una, binigay ko muna yung wand kay Lanna and I showed her how to play with it... Ginagaya naman nya ko. Next yung headband... nung una kase ayaw nya talaga ng headband. Naiirita siguro. Pero this time parang natuwa sya. Ang cute naman talaga kase eh. Nung nakita nya, pumunta pa talaga sya sa mirror to admire herself... ang sabi pa nya, "Woowww!" in a hasky voice. Nakakatuwa talaga. Yung wings naman, sinuot ko lang sa kanya pero hindi naman rin nya tinanggal. Nakakatuwa talaga. Lalo syang ginanahang mag lakad. Sana nakita nyo... hehe! Eto nalang yung pictures ng little fairy ko...

First Birthday

Simple lang ang first birthday ni Lanna ngayon... I was in the office last night then labas ko is 7am kaya hindi nako nakasama sa pag simba kay Lanna nung morning... Ginising daw nila si Lanna around 5:30am. They were clapping their hands and singing "Happy Birthday!". Sobrang ayaw daw gumising ni Lanna. Nung medyo nagising na daw, nag ka-clap na rin daw sya ng hands habang nakapikit pa yung eyes hehehe! Binihisan na nila si baby then nag simba na silang lahat. Dumating ako sa house mga 8:00am na. Nag-nap kami ni Lanna then nood Nick Jr channel sa cable. Around 5pm dumating na sila papa, ardey, charles and Amandine. Grabeh ang cute cute nila Lanna and Amandine pag magkasama... 2 cutie babies... hehe Then around 7pm dumating na sila Daddy, kuya Jojo at ate Jen kaya kumanta nakami ng happy birthday and we ate dinner. Simple lang handa namin... kare-kare, lumpiang shang-hai, pansit, spag with bread. Then bumili nalang ako ng marjoline cake sa red ribbon... yummy! Umalis narin sila mga 9pm kase may pasok pa. Umakyat nakami sa taas then nag open kami ng gifts. Thanks to Ninang Jennet and Tito Jojo for the Baby Einstien books and Thanks to Wabs family for the mini-4-wheel bike... At sempre SUPER thanks sa mommy ko for cooking dinner! Thanks rin sa mga sisters ko whose always there to help! Tulog na tulog na si Lanna ngayon... mukang nag enjoy naman sya. Iniisip ko lang ngayon... alam kaya nya na birthday nya ngayon? Hmmm....

Lanna Jessie

At exactly 1 'o clock in the morning… I woke up feeling a little wet with minor back pains. Thinking that it was normal, I went to the rest room to do my thing. I went to bed thinking how am I going to go back to sleep? Still feeling the back pains… I looked at the clock and noticed that the back pains where in and out with 2 minutes intervals. I remembered what my OB said, 2-3 minutes interval could mean contractions. I was not aware of that since I don't know what contractions feels like. After 1 hour of staring at the clock and counting intervals, I felt water came out from me again. I instantly got nervous and woke up hubby. I remembered saying there's water and then I stood up for him to see. He quickly got up and took the cars when he saw the water on the floor. I called my mom because I don't want to leave just for false alarm. But she said that we should go ahead to hospital, no need to wait. While on the road, I felt the back pains are getting heavier and I want to shout all the pain… I can't believe we did a pit stop at the shell gasoline in muñoz. Hubby was all panic asking the gasoline boy to load us up first because it was an emergency. After that, we hurried to the hospital, The Medical City in Ortigas. Upon reaching the emergency area, I remembered I had no undies on. Good thing I grabbed a clean one before leaving home. I hurried and put them on before going out of the car. I was immediately offered a wheel chair and they asked for my OB's name. I was rolled up to the 5th floor where the labor room is. When I got to the pre-labor room, the pain was unbearable. They made me change and wore the hospital gown and asked me to remove my undies…I thought, I just put them on earlier. Anyway, they did some test, check vitals/signs and asked simple questions in which I can't answer… my mind was completely focused on the pain. I heard my hubby was being called in by the nurse and asked him to process the paper so they can proceed. When my hubby came back, they talked a little bit and my hubby was asked to wait outside. The nurse attached a hospital band on my wrist and I was asked to sit on the wheel chair again. I was now brought to the labor room. There I was lying on the bed feeling the contractions getting heavier and more painful. They did an IE and told me that it's only 2-3cm. What the?! The pain was too much but they're telling me that its only 2-3 cm? They told that they're going to inject anesthesia since the pain was unbearable for me. I agreed. The next thing I knew, I was asked to curl up like a shrimp so the doctor can inject a big needle on my back. Good thing, I was well educated by my sister several days earlier that's why I knew what to do during that time. I felt heaven at last when I felt cold medicine ran up my spine… yes the pain subsided. At last my OB arrived. You can't believe how glad I am to see that familiar face on the edge of my bed. I watched her asked questions to the nurse on duty and ran some tests again. They waited again. After an hour, they did an IE again and confirm that it was 6-7cm. I was hurried me to the ER. The ER was so cool. Just like on the movies and TV series. Male nurses helped me to get to the other bed. I was shy by the thought I had no undies on. They teach me how to push and relax which we all did simultaneously… but still no baby. Then I saw another male doctor came in the ER and talked to my Tita (which is also my OB). While we were counting and I was pushing all my might, the male doctor helped me by pushing my tummy towards my feet. We did that several times. So imagine me counting, holding my breathe, pushing while the doctor's arm was on top of my tummy helping me. After an hour in the ER, the baby came out… it was 7:48AM. I saw how they washed and checked the baby. I stared and even tried to count my baby's fingers just to check if they're all complete. I can't but smile when I heard my baby's cry. At last, they let me look at my baby for the first time. So cute. She's so pink… with rosy cheeks. They brought her to nursery for further assistance while I stayed there and waited out. I fell asleep. My tita woke me up and told me that I will be brought to the recovery room where I can sleep. I think I slept for 2 hours at most. The nurse asked me if I could move my legs. Barely. They said, they will allow me to go to my room if I was able to move my legs. But I fell asleep again. So tired and hungry. After an hour, I was able to move them. In the room, I saw familiar faces… my hubby, father-in-law, my mom and my sisters... we immediately talked of what happened to me that morning. You believe how much food I ate that morning. And later that afternoon I get to see my Baby… which we named Lanna Jessie Ortiz Delos Santos. All these happened at exactly one year ago...

Happy 1st Birthday Lanna Jessie!

Before the birthday

Grabeh... excited ba ako or kinakabahan? Ewan ko ba. Naiisip ko lang yung mga guests eh. Sana mag enjoy sila. Anyway, kanina pala ni-try kong isukat yung new undies ni Lanna... mejo maluwag pa... pero okay na rin. Then binuksan ko yung party hats nya... tinignan ko kung okay. So far, okay naman. Mukang mga babae lang mag susuot ng party hats kase puro Disney Princess.. iba-ibang character... Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Ariel, Jasmine. Sa SM Department store ko nabili yung mga party hats at name tags... pano kase wala sa 168 kaya mejo mahal. Puro magaganda naman.

+ December 31 +

We went to church around 9am then bumili kami ng maraming fruits. Dumating sila ate jen kase magluluto kami ng food. Dumating rin yung ibang tito and titas kase kumuha sila ng paputok... Around 8pm umalis narin sila ate jen. First time namin mag nu-new year ni Lanna sa Bulacan... kaya mejo hindi ko alam kung papano sequence ginagawa nila pag new year na... so the usual lang, nag hintay hangang 11:30pm. Then around 11:45pm, nag start na sila sa mga paputok. Kami lang ata nag papaputok sa street nila. Okay naman... sobrang enjoy ako sa kwitis... Kase from ground biglang lilipad pataas... hahaha. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

+ January 2 +

HAPPY FIRST YEAR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY!!!

+ January 6 +

We went to Miggy's first birthday... Sinama kami ni ate jen :) Sobrang enjoy kami ni Lanna. Pero ayaw pa nya ng mascot. Nung lumapit kami kay jollibee natulala na sya. I held her hand papunta kay jollibee pero nanginginig sya hahaha! I cant help laughing talaga. Pero hindi naman sya umiiyak... Jollibee even gave her a kiss pero si Lanna, nakatulala lang... funny talaga. Makes me wonder though... ano kaya iniisip ni Lanna about Jollibee... hhmm....

+ January 7 +

Sobrang tuwang-tawa ako sa araw na to! Another first... Lanna can walk by herself! Yes, she can stand-up and walk pero gusto nya yung mag hawak. Hindi sya mag lalakad pag hindi kayo holding hands... by this time, she walked. Grabeh, iba feeling. Hangang ngayon natutuwa talaga ako pag nakikita ko syang nag lalakad mag isa... "Inspektor" nga tawag ng papa ko kay Lanna... Pano kase nag lalakad-lakad lang sya d2... pabalik-balik lang hehehe nakakatuwa talaga!

Late na kami dumating sa house. Dumaan pa kase ako sa SM to check out the cakes there. Then nagkita kami ng friend ko. Catch-up sa mga chikas! Pagdating ko sa house, sabi sakin may bagong trick daw si Lanna... They were teaching Lanna how to blow the candle. Grabeh, getting ready for the party na talaga. This weekend kami bibili ng dress nya for the party. I pray that everything will turn our great.
