Looking for...

Everybody knows how hard it is to loose weight after birth. And I've been trying my hardiest to get my pre-pregnancy body back. I lost a total of 20lbs last month and I'm on a strict diet right now. I haven't checked my weigh lately but I can see curves on the side already. I have to work more on the puson area.


The only problem I have right now is where I can get (buy) a 2-pcs swim suit. Our company outing is within 3 weeks. I'm confident that I would get a pair before the outing. Pero lagi kong nakikita sa mall puro skimpy bikins—ayoko nun! I remembered last Saturday we went to the mall, I asked my sister kung bagay ba sakin yung 2-pcs… sabi ba naman sakin—" Please don't scare the kids!" hahahaha! Kaya nagkaron tuloy ako ng second thoughts of wearing one. Pero hindi ba mas panget pag one-pc?


Thanks to FeistyMomma! Nabuhayan ako ng loob! I saw her wearing a very cute 2-pcs swim suit… sexy! I really liked the color!


Sana makahanap rin ako para sakin…. Any suggestions?

Picture of the Week

I love this picture! It's enchanting.... I felt like flying.

Anyway, this Picture of the Week is for my sister- MISIAOH, who keeps on reminiscing these past few days... She can't believe that it's been a year since she graduated from college. I remembered years ago when I was still studying, my dream was to finish College. But she told me that she wants to finish College- with flying colors. One year ago, this young gal gave our parents a proud Cum Laude award.

Now, she is in full control of her future and I believe she will go places...

Video of the week

Here's one video I want to show you... it's kinda weird though. You know Japanese people would do anything that would make their lives easier. That's why they have all these hi-tech gadgets etc. This video teaches how they can learn English easier. They used a technique that would make them remember. I remember when I was in HS reviewing for exams, I would put melody in the notes so I can sing them. So during exams, I would just sing it in my head. I don't know why it's much easier to memorize lyrics. Anyway, enough said... here's the odd or let's say weird video.

Missed PMN Lunch Out + Sleepy today

I totally missed PMN mommy lunch out the other day. By reading the updates from all the attendees, I'm sure everyone had a great time! Looking forward to the next PMN mommy lunch out. I'm sure there will be another meeting coming very soon!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
So so sleepy today... Saturday, my mom and I brought Lanna to her Pedia. Then late in the afternoon, we went to TriNoMa. I was happy to see Lanna very excited and enjoyed every moment. We rode the carousel for the first time. Funny... Lanna doesn't want to stay at one horse! She keeps on pointing other horses and vacant rides... That's why we kept going to every one of the vacant spots. So imagine us palipat-lipat! That made me dizzy--very dizzy! We ate dinner and walked some more while my sister looked for a cute blouse for birthday. While walking, Lanna and I would run and play hide and seek. And she would laugh out loud every time. We had fun! Before going home, we bought blizzard ice cream (Diary Queen)--Mud pie for me! Yummy! Next time, I'll try the Pecan Cluster. Lanna fell asleep on the way home.

We went to church 6AM, Sunday morning! I packed Lanna's things coz we're gonna go to my Ate's place in LP. My Ate and her husband conducted free "Art Lessons" in their subd. The short course ran 4 weeks (4 consecutive Sundays-9AM) and it was their last day yesterday. My sister, Misiaoh was the "guest teacher" for the day. Lanna kept walking and running, in and out of the multi-purpose hall. Gosh, talk about exercise! Anyway, seeing the kids there-I knew they had fun learning and making the Father's day card for their dads, which my sister taught them. I helped Ate prepare snacks for kids. It was fun! Then we had lunch at their place.

After lunch, we watched "Blades of Glory". The movie was hilarious! Just like Zoolander. Anyway, Lanna enjoyed playing her cousin's toys--ang dami kase promise ! hehehe! Then around 4pm we went to SM South Mall and ate dinner at Chef de Angelo. Yummy Pizza! We bought a high-chair for Lanna so we can train her to eat her veggies. Yes, I'm having a hard time feeding her now coz she's so active. Buying the high-chair is a sign that I'm drop dead serious about it hahaha.. serious daw oh.

We arrived home late then I had to fix my things coz I have to go to work very early the next day. I slept late, coz I wasted my time looking for my damn cellphone. I think I left it in the car.

Can't wait to get home and catch some sleep........ ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....

See pictures *here*

TAGGED

I've been tagged by Kathy.

The Rules: Each person tagged gives seven random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs seven facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and need to read your blog.

Here goes:

1. I can eat ButterFinger (my favorite!) or chocolatesss (as in 2-3 bars or more) without drinking water.


2. I always wanted to have curly hair. But I never had the nerve to curl my hair permanently.


3. I love boots! Low-heels and knee-high… Never liked wearing sandals with super high heels.


4. I can stay awake for 24-hours…


5. I can home and play all day with my little girl.


6. I used to be chain smoker. One day, I quit. Why? Because of my Lanna Jessie.


7. I don't like raw foods… mainly Japanese food.

Most of my blog friends already answered this. Well, if you (yes you!) haven't answered… your tagged!

Test mail-to-blog post....

"Take what you do very seriously, and work hard at it. It doesn't matter if you solo. You're the bass player, the bottom you drive the band. When I was growing up, everyone said, "Oh, it's just a second guitar." Bullshit! It's an art, man. We should all be proud to be bass players."

Lakwatsa

Today we went to Aeia's 1st birthday at Max's resto in San Mateo Rizal. Aeia's mom was my previous officemate in L2. Anyway, we went to church at 8:30am then alis nakami agad. We arrived there around 10:30pm--kaka-start lang ng party. Usual activity sa mga kiddie party... Si Lanna tumitingin sa mga clowns, pero hindi naman sya takot... sumasayaw pa nga sya eh. Hindi naman kami sumali sa games kase Lanna's too young to join. But she enjoyed roaming around the play area, watching kids having fun, playing with her pink balloon... Grabeh! Ang init kanina pero masarap sempre yung food hehehe...

Here's the link -- *Aiea's 1st Birthday* and videos *here*

Natapos yung kiddie party around 1:30pm na... after that, we were suppose to go to JP's cousin but it's still too early. So decided to go to Ate Jen's place. Nag pahinga kami dun then nag palipas ng oras... sempre asawa ko nakakita ng Spiderman3 dvd--nood agad sya. At sempre nood na rin ako! Hindi ko na na-enjoy yung movie sa big screen... pero naisip ko, okay lang at least tipid! hahaha!

Then around 4pm nakami umalis dun, then we went to their cousin's place. Walang katapusang kainan na naman! Grabeh! kailangan kong doblehin ang work-out ko this week! 9pm na kami umalis dun kase mejo napasarap ang kwentuhan... Si Lanna, as usual pa-ikot-ikot nag lalakad sa buong bahay parang inspektor. Sunod sunod naman ako... kaya eto ang sakit sakit ng mga binti ko kakalakad.

Here's the *link*

Kamusta naman weekend nyo?

Song In My Head

I'm a 'Alanis-fanatic' during my college years. We used to play her song with my all girl-ash band... "B.I.T.C.H"--Birds In The Chamber Hall. Janis-vocalist/rhythm guitar, Shylla-lead guitar, Tina-bass guitar and Lizzz-Drums. Can't help but miss all the fun we had together! I dunno where you guys are right now... but I wish you all the best in life! This is for you guys.... THANK YOU.

How bout getting off from these antibiotics.
How bout stopping eating when I'm full up.
How bout them transparent dangling carrots.
How bout that ever elusive kudo.

Thank you India. Thank you terror. Thank you disillusionment. Thank you frailty.
Thank you consequence. Thank you, Thank you SILENCE.

How bout me not blaming you for everything.
How bout me enjoying the moment for once.
How bout how good it feels to finally forgive you.
How bout grieving it all one at a time.

The moment I let go of it was the moment, I got more than I could handle.
The moment I jumped off of it, was the moment I touched down.

How bout no longer being masochistic.
How bout remembering your divinity.
How bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out.
How bout not equating death with stopping.

Thank you India. Thank you providence. Thank you disillusionment.
Thank you nothingness. Thank you clarity. Thank you, Thank you SILENCE.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Me and my sister went to the dentist this morning. Hope I can also discipline myself so I can visit the dentist regularly. Anyway, we arrived home around 11:30AM, so imagine how HOT it was! *whew!* I missed my baby already! My mom said, Lanna doesn't want to take a nap. Good thing my mom turned-on the AC so we can have a cool siesta. Late afternoon, we had a voice/chat with my sister in Dubai. I think her new classical guitar is great! (YAMAHA) My dad was telling her to buy a cheap organ/piano, so she can still practice her piano skills...I agree! We were also asking her to look for a cheap 5-string bass guitar for Lanna hahaha! Okay Okay! Bass guitar is for me....

There's a new mall already operational in front of SM north, The Block-->TriNoMa. My mom, dad and 2 sisters already went there last wednesday--Opening day! *hindi naman sila gaano excited db?* We were suppose to go there earlier, pero nagkatamaran na. Hopefully, we can join them tomorrow, but I think we'll go to JP's cousins in the afternoon.

Shreik is already showing! And I haven't seen the Spiderman 3 movie! What's wrong with me? I hate it when I don't have time for myself...

Good News! I've been trying my hardiest to maintain my every morning ab exercise! "I want those abs!" video has been there for me... And I've doing it for the past 4 days. And now I'm seeing and feeling the results...

Life is Good... I feel Good!

Happy Mother's Day!

We went swimming yesterday @ Fort Wilhelmina, Bacoor Cavite. It's private resort owned by our brother-in-law. We arrived there at exactly 12 noon, and Lanna can't resist the water! She kept saying "imming! imming!" while pointing at the pool. Ayoko pa nga sana mag swimming kami coz it's still hot and we are waiting for our Ate... She has the sun block lotion. Sempre I can't say 'no' to a cutie little girl... kaya nag bihis na kami agad. Good thing, malilim sa may jacuzzi area, so there Lanna played... grabeh! tuwang-tawa! We had lunch then swimming na naman. I let yaya accompany Lanna in the pool coz I had to sleep--yup! headache kase puyat. After an hour or an hour and a half ata... aba! sa pool parin si Lanna, with my sisters and my mom. Sempre sabay talon na rin ako agad. Lanna stayed in the pool until 6pm. Grabeh 5 hours or more ata nasa pool si Lanna. Pero hindi naman sya umiyak nung umahon nakmi... we gave her a bottle of milk then sabay tulog. Nakakatawa, kase umihilik pa ata sya. We had dinner there and went home narin. On the way, dinaanan namin yung sister ko sa condo. Kakapagod pero sobrang enjoy.

Today, we are gonna go to my hubby's relative in Val. Then his cousin is visiting us to have dinner naman. Tapos kila mama at papa, dinner rin. Nako baka hindi nakami makapunta... daming lakad.

Hope you all have a wonderful MOTHER'S DAY today!

It's been raining lately… but it's a good thing coz we need to wash the streets of Manila. Believe me, the heat has been unbearable. The timestamp on the title bar is exact time I made this entry. You ask, why on EST? Coz I'm still in the office rendering overtime. Miraculously, I volunteered… I had second thoughts on going home earlier because of the rain. Then one of our office mate called in sick, so someone had to take her place. Our AM was so happy of my good act that she bought me a venti choco java chip—is this right? I'm not a Starbucks person. Anyway, my stomach is so full and my choco java is still half full. This is also the reason why I'm still alive and awake… I still have 2 and ½ hours to go. I hope that the caffeine will go down by 3am, if not, no sleeping for me then…

I've been thinking a lot of things lately. About what I've become… what I can do… what I can give/provide… things I can/cannot control… about our future… and the things I want to do with the rest of my life… It's complicated, as they say. Or this could be one of those low moments I encounter whenever I'm alone and talking to myself. I don't know if this is normal or do I need any counseling of some sort… I'm not sure.

It would be nice if I had the power to travel time and bend space continuum. Just like Hiro in HEROES. I can check my future and easily change it the way I wanted it to be. But would I dare do it?

As I stared at the EST time on my computer clock… I continue to wonder what the future has in store for me. Would it be a hard and complicated one or is it the life that I'm dreaming off…

I wonder.

Heroes

I've been geeting a lot of good feedback about Heroes. I'm gonna try to watch at least a one episode a day just to catch up. This will keep me busy while still waiting for the next season of Prison Break. Let's watch.

kwento lang

Have you seen the Spiderman3 movie? Ako, hindi pa! But we plan to see it, last full show--but when? My sister is planning to see it after the excitement settle down a bit. But it will take weeks right? Besides, by the time they see it; the movie will be ruin because of the spoilers. Spiderman is everywhere! Saturday, we found ourselves in a spiderman-mall-activity in The Block. They have this huge inflatable play ground, kiddie wall climbing and much more. But we chose to stay 'coz we don't want to feel the summer heat at home. We ate at Wham Burger--again! Talk about diet huh?! Can't seem to resist those damn burgers! It's big, juicy and yummy! Good thing, Lanna was sleeping; I was able to enjoy my God-given burger. We walked some more after that meal and by the time we went home, my biceps, arms and legs were aching in pain! Lanna is so heavy. And when we got home... she's still active. Reminders to all moms--those let your kid eat M&M minis around 8PM--they will never sleep. The "super rush" is still there! She was running, laughing and screaming! Gosh! Talk about hyper! Believe me, this is the hyper of all hyper-ness...

Anyway, it was so hot in the church yesterday. I felt very very tired. It felt like I had a gym work-out the other day... yeah, I'm that tired. Then we went to Ate jen and Kuya Jo's place that afternoon--pasyal lang. Then we went home after that yummy KFC dinner.


Things I NEED TO DO:
1. DIET DIET DIET!!! (I'm starting to eat like a pig again...)
2. Need to buy bathing suit (Will hit the beach this June--at last)
3. Need to buy rubber and bag (need to treat myself)
4. Need to print Lanna pictures (back log of photos)
5. Need to update the Baby Book (need to print some more photos for this)
6. Need to start on the scrap book (compile things I got from Lanna 1st bday)
7. Need to buy a new pair of boots (yeah, as if I really need this.)
8. Need to check the suking ukay-ukay (...and this too hehehe)
9. Need to exercise! (Burn those fats)
10. Need to have time to do all these....... (*wishing well*)

For now... I need to sleep... Can't believe it's already 2:40AM!!!
