popcorn

For me, popcorn is the best snack ever discovered in this world. I'm not exaggerating, it's just my favorite. So I made sure that I have stocks of them in the kitchen closet. And did I say that it's my daughter's favorite snack too? We even try those popcorn carts in the mall just to compare the taste. But what really hits us is the nice presentation we saw on the Internet. And what I great to give popcorn gift basket tins candy. It's another gift idea from Texas mckinney.BuyBlogReviews.com

TGIF

For all the unfortunately events that happened these past few days, I am so thankful that hubby and I are alive and okay. I am also thankful that we get to enjoy the trick or treat activity yesterday at the mall, especially with a mom blogger and friend. Happy weekend and happy Halloween.

Trick or Treat!

Yesterday we went to TriNoMa for the Kid's trick or treat activity. The mall was packed with so many kids and their moms, and good thing we arrived early so we were one of the first in line to get the loot bags. So what's our costume? Angel again. Just like last year. I just bought a pair of wings and a headband the other day to complete the attire.

~ The little angel insisted that we get the pumpkin head too. ~

When we were in line to get the loot bags, I saw Anne--HS batch mate and her son, Dywn. So I quickly got 2 loot bags for the two kids. Oh boy, Dywn looks very cute and pogi with his Pikachu costume.
~ Kids looked good with their costumes. ~

When I checked the time, I was surprised because we were already walking for two straight hours. I gave up 30 minutes later because my feet hurts and we were starving. We had lunch at Pizza hut because they have fries (for the kids) and pizza (for moms) hahaha. What a perfect time to bond and talk about the joys of being a mother.

~ Atty. Anne and Dywn ~

~ I think I gained a few pounds again because of this SAHM-thing.
Oh men! Look at me! Fat! ~

~ When we were chatting, we noticed that Dywn and Lanna were getting along okay. ~

I liked to stay and join Anne but my mom, dad and sister were calling me because we were suppose to meet them at Blue wave after lunch. We bid our goodbyes and ran at the MRT station to get to Taft Ave. We spend the afternoon at my sister's house and they accompanied me to the manghihilot (lola). I feel much better now.

And who says trick or treat is not over yet? It's almost 10am now and we are getting ready to go to SM Marilao for the trick or treat there. See yah!

Temporary SAHM

So what am I doing these days? I'm a temporary SAHM and I'm so loving it. There was a series of unfortunate events that happened to me these past few days that lead me to not go to work within the next few days. Which turned out to be good though because I had more time with my kid. And tomorrow's a big day for us because we're going to check out the trick or treat activity in the mall. I'm excited because it's our first time to join. And if we enjoy the activity tomorrow, we might go to the trick or treat again on Friday here in the nearby mall.

And if you want to know what happened to me, here's the detailed story. For now, I'm alive and A-okay and very much excited to tomorrow activity.

moth traps

I got fed up on browsing gadgets, pictures, blogs on the Internet the other day. That's why I tried to search and find ways on how to keep the house clean and safe especially for the little angel. Like every house hold in the world, pests are the most problem in the house. Mouse, cockroach, termites, moths and many many more. And here's what I've found on the Internet. It's the Indian meal moth traps. It traps moth on 3 sides of the papers, which is good right? It's a good way of keeping the house moth free.

air tools

Christmas is just months away and here I am struggling on what to give to my Father-in-law. Looking for a gift every year seems to be a constant problem to me. At his age, it seems that he has everything that he needed. I once thought of giving food instead, but of course, a token would be nicer right? Good thing, I found air tools on the Internet and it's the perfect gift for my Father-In-Law. I can't wait to show this to my hubby and I'm sure he'll like the idea too. I hope I could find more gift ideas on the Internet.

Weekend video

It's another weekend gate away for us so I've posted a weekend video in advance. The video was taken last week in one of the jam session held in Cubao. This is not Marry Me Amy (my group). These are my friends from my previous work and they visited me to join them in the up coming Battle for a Cause this coming Nov. 8.

By the time this entry is posted, we might be on our way to our destination. And yes, we'll be bringing along the little kiddo. So see you next week and enjoy the video for now.

Seeing cheap

I've been wearing eyeglasses for almost three years now. I find ode at first because I am not used to wearing it ever since. I lost my perfect vision after my pregnancy period, and I've been a constant visitor in the optical shop in the nearby mall here. Why? because I kept loosing my eyeglasses. Sometimes, I was caught off guard and my little daughter broke it. I was not practical anymore to buy newly expensive eyeglasses every time. So my mom advise me to get the cheaper ones because I'll loose it anyway any time soon. I'll take my mom advise and get cheaper ones.

Weekend Snapshot

~ We had lunch at Dencio's @ Starmall after the baptismal ceremony of Amadine's youngest cousin Wiloy. My little angel and her cousin, Amandine just love doing things together. And here, they snatched a piece of cupcake each from the cake and ate it. I had to take a picture before cleaning them up. ~

strollers

We went to our sister's house this morning because my daughter misses her cousin already. I bought a trick or treat witch hat with assorted chocolates for our surprise treat for my niece and she loved it. My sister had a little chat while the kids were playing. And we've talked about her second daughter being sick these past few days. Good thing she was feeling better. That's why they always bring the strollers wherever they'd go.

Super Sunday

We've been out of the house at 6 in the morning and I'm exhausted. Little angel and her cousin had been playing for last couple of hours. Good thing there's wifi connection here at my sister's place and I'm free to surf anytime I want. We just woke up from the 2 hour nap and we're getting ready to go to a party now. Super!

Davao - day 4

Day 4, our last day of vacation. We woke up early got dressed and packed our bags. When I was ready to go, I took pictures of the house, even the neighborhood outside.

~ Blur shot in front of the mirror. ~

When we were waiting for the husband to finish packing (yeah, he's in charge with the bags), the little angel made new friends again. When I asked them to look at the camera and smile, the little kiddo made a weird pose.

~ With my new friends... ~

We went to this church in front of the town's City Hall. There were lots of vendors out the in street too. My dad and I bought peanuts, buko and other chicha (snacks) on the street.

~ My friend told me that this church was bombed few years back. Scary. ~

Lunchtime. We saw Jo's chicken couple of blocks from the church. There's a branch of Jo's chicken here near congressional (qc) and we love to eat there, so we want to try Jo's version in Davao.

~ Daddy wait up! ~

We sat in the corner where it's spacious and cozy. I love the interior of the place.

~ Little angel just won't smile. ~

After lunch, we checked out the local delicacies. Davao's best -- Durian. But I like Suha more than Durian because I can't stand the odor.

~ Bought fruits and packed them in boxes. ~

We were suppose to watch a group of drag racers but the race was already finished. Sayang! So we went to crocodile park instead.

~ At the entrance. ~

In the park, we saw more animals. I did not had a hard time asking the little kiddo to pose beside the animals. It's just that, she makes that weird pose again.

~ The pose. ~

There were lots of crocodile in the park (obviously) this one in the middle of the park, I think was the largest. This was the biggest crocodile I've seen in my life.

~ He's huge.. promise. ~

Another animal that caught our attention was this Chimpanzee who kept swinging using a car's tire. He's big too.

~ Hello there! ~

We stopped by the the park snack bar and rested. Of course more picture taking for me while the hubby and the little kiddo checked the place. When they came back, they bought this weird fruit shake. The hubby said, it was a Dragon fruit. It's tasted like banana but it's pink. Weird.

~ Souvenir shop in front of the snack bar. ~

It was getting late that's why we decided to go home. We finished packing the bags, checked the fruit boxes and then we said farewell to everybody. They said, on our next visit, we should stay at least two weeks. Wishing well.

Then we had dinner at Bannoks, yup chicken again hahaha. The food there is low-priced, even in restos. Believe it or not, we only paid Php514 for the dinner--2 chicken pecho, big bowl of Bulalo, grilled liempo, chicharon bulalak, unlimited rice and a liter of pepsi.

~ I just love grilled chicken. ~

After dinner, we went straight to the airport. We said goodbye and thank our friend for all the hospitality. See you in Manila bro...

~ Hubby and the little kiddo entering the airport gates... ~

Pre-departure area was crowded. We were able to get a front seat row where we can easily view the airplanes parked outside the runway. I even took a video of the little angel running back and forth. Ang likot grabeh!

~ Checking the airplane. ~

The little angel, of course fell asleep because it was very late and I think she's tired from all that running earlier. The flight experienced little turbulence along the way. It made the little angel uncomfortable that's why she slept on lap and preferred a bear hug from me. I kinda felt a little panic because stupid me, I watched Air crash investigation before we left Manila.

~ Sleeping... ~

Two hours later, we were back in Manila. We were laughing in the baggage area because the little angel got frustrated. Our bags were taking so long to come out of the hole. Then we met up with a friend whose working there as one of the airport police. He escorted until we got our bags properly stuffed in the car.

~ Nice to see you again bro... ~

We were safe and sound in Bulacan at 1AM. Hmmmm... Davao is a nice place. Wish we could go back there, next year? Let's see. Check photos *here*

Wordless Wednesday

This is the result of watching too much princess movies. She loves Belle and Cinderella too much that she insisted to wear a dress yesterday. I gave in because she has tons of dresses in the closet and I don't want them to go to waste without her wearing it at least once. She even agreed that I take photos of her, of course while watching Beauty and the Beast.

Davao - day 3

Davao - day 3. We woke up late because because it's the town's fiesta and will not go out for the rest of the day. And while was the hubby and the little angel were still sleeping, I got out and had my nails done. They charge manicure/pedicure for only Php40.

~ Still sleeping... ~

While we were getting ready, people downstairs were so busy preparing the day's feast. Menudo, Native fried chicken, Lechon, Salads etc.

~ Lunch is served. ~

Then while we enjoy our delicious lunch, we were entertained by the local band. Actually they were the people in the neighborhood. And oh they play quite well! Especially the man on the left wearing a cap, he has the most amazing voice that I got goosebumps all over my arms when he sang "Lately" by Stevie Wonder.

~ Music feeds my soul. ~

While the band were rockin' downstairs, the little angel met a friend and her name was Arian. They were both the same age and they enjoyed playing inside the bedroom. Theirs no language barrier here. They can still understand each other even if the little angel speaks English while Arian speaks fluent Bisaya.

~ Show me some smile here please... good! ~

Darkness fell but the music still lingers in the air and this time younger bands were playing. This band played most that night. That girl's very pretty and her voice was nice, and she's only 17 years old woah. The guy on the black shirt on the right looks very simple but he definitely blew our ears away when he sang slow rock songs from the early 90's.

~ Rock 'n roll. ~

We slept around mid-night and woke up early the next day to pack our things. It's time to go... already? See more pictures *here*

Davao - day 2

Second day - We woke up early, prepare our bags, got dressed and hit the beach. Paradise Island here we go...

~ In the van on the way to the beach. ~

I prepared for a an hour or two drive but what do you know, the car ride was only 15 minutes. And then it's time to ride a boat bound to our destination. The little angel was crying because she wants to soak in the water already.

~ She refuses to look at the camera because she wants to deep in the water. ~

Then we finally convinced the little kiddo to hop in because there's another beach that we're suppose to go and it's much nicer there. It was.

~ The boat ride to Paradise Island. ~

The boat ride was just 15 minutes and there we were at Paradise. For only Php 100, we enjoyed fresh air, quiet and clear waters.

~ At the entrance... ~

The little angel was literally smiling when we saw and felt the sand on her feet. She shifted to a happy mood instantly.

~ oooohhhh... sand! ~

The little angel and the hubby ran to the shore and worked on the sand. We settled in just in front of the shore. The water was clear and calm.

~ Work in progress... ~

I joined them and of course, more picture taking. Since I don't have a tripod, I needed to put the cam down on the sand and set it on timer mode. And finally took a nice photo of us. I love this shot! Our faces were kinda dark because we were in the shade. Unfortunately, I don't know how to edit this on adobe.

~ This is us. Beach addicts. ~

And of course, while they proceed with their sand jobs, I was out there checking out the water. It was still crystal clear below, just like before when I first came there 10 years ago.

~ It's a whole new world under the sea. ~

After the delicious lunch, we swam a little more and then negotiated with the little kiddo because it was time to take a bath and get dressed. Obviously, she still doesn't want to go.

~ Boat ride home ~

We had tan lines when we got home. Obviously, the little kiddie was so tired in the photo. I kept asking, "Are you sleepy?" and she would answer, "No, mommy..." But look at her sleepy eyes in the picture. See pictures *here*
