I’m very lucky to have a husband who’s not so fashion conscious. He’s happy with shirt, jeans and shoes. Actually, matagal ko na syang gustong bilan ng shoes. Tuwing nakikita ko yung chaka nyang dress shoes, naaawa ako. He needs a nice dress shoes, because where he works, they have days when they have to be in business attire. We have other prorities, especially now that I’m a few months before giving birth kaya laging napopostpone ang pagbili. I told him yesterday we need to buy him new shoes, baka kasi sabihin ng mga tao pinapabayaan sya. Natuwa naman ako sa sagot nya, sabi nya “it’s not the measure of a man.” If you know that song yun ang kabuuan ng sagot nya haha! Natawa na lang ako. Mahal naman kasi ng sapatos ng lalake. Sa babae P500 lang may magandang flats ka na. I promised myself, I will buy him a new pair of shoes. We saw a nice pair in SM yesterday, at carry namin ang presyo hehe.
Ang mga lab lab ko!
Our New Year’s Eve #NYE
It’s our first ever new year without my mom and sister. My mom moved to stay with my sister in Manila, so it’s just the three of us plus the new addition to our family inside my tummy. I had to do all the planning, cooking and shopping but of course with a little help from my husband.
New year here in La Trinidad is quite peaceful, people are not allowed to sell firecrackers but we still had neighbors who used them but it was less. It was the first time that Uno was awake on new year’s eve, come midnight he’s fear of the sound of paputok years ago is still in him haha!
Here are some photos of our New Year’s eve.
I made spaghetti Bolognese, herb roasted chicken and vegetables and graham refrigerated cake.
Give it a Year (or four and more!)
I once saw a movie called “Give it a Year,” there was a married couple in that movie who hated each other, the call each other names but still they stay married. Her newly married sister asked her, “you hate each other so much but why are you still married?” She answered, “marriage is about accepting what you hate about each other.” I believe that’s right to stay married you have to accept a person’s whole being including the flaws. I admit my husband’s flaws always gets on my nerves all the time especially now that I’m pregnant. I get irritated with him very easily and I know I’m also getting on his nerves, but we air out our anger and move on. Marriage is a lot of hard work believe me, it’s hard work by 2 people. Both of you have to want to work together or else it will fall apart. And most of all you have to have God in the center, start from there and everything will fall into place.
In our four years together, we have gone through a lot and I’m glad we fought hard and now we are happier. So to my husband, Clyde. Happy 4th Anniversary! I love you!
Now, this is how we spent our 4th year in photos.
We ate, of course. No anniversary will be ever complete without food.

Tired of Dresses
For the past 5 months of my life I’ve worn dresses most of the days, especially when I go to work. When I found out I’m pregnant, I find that as an opportunity to wear dresses all the time because I love wearing them. But last week I got tired of it. I saw my friends wearing jeans everyday and I told one of them I miss wearing jeans. I have a pair of maternity jeans which I was just able to recently wear because the pants’ fit were designed for the late stages of pregnancy.
I miss wearing separates, like jeans and shirt or jeans and a blouse. My peg for this is the pregnant Drew Barrymore. She has a very laid back style when she was pregnant, she wore jeans and shirts most of the time, if not jeans, then some casual trousers. And she’s also pregnant with baby number 2!

Who doesn’t love Cebu lechon? Maybe vegans and vegetarians, hehe? Anyway, I love lechon, I don’t get to eat them often because of it’s availability and also for health reasons. I don’t want to have hypertension because of eating too much lechon. FYI, lechon is roasted pig and the best lechons come from Cebu. And now Baguio people can now have a taste of the famous Cebu lechon at a much cheaper price.
Joy and Karen discovered this food truck style eatery beside the famous Baguio Cathedral. They serve Cebu lechon meal for only P100 and Lechon Paksiw for only P120 which is already good for 3 people. It’s real lechon to me because the skin is super crispy. Why did I say that? Because some lechons that I have tasted in the past doesn’t have that kind of crispiness and if it’s crispy, some parts of the pig are not as crispy as the others.

Will it be a boy or a girl?
Last Monday we went to the ultrasound clinic to find out the gender of our new baby. There was a long line so we had to wait for almost 2 hours for my turn. When my turn came we weren’t able to find out the gender of the baby because first, the baby is in a breech position and secondly the baby had its legs crossed. Seriously? Anyway that’s ok, at least I was able to find out that my baby is healthy and doing good.

The Filipinos are being tested again, especially the people in the mid part of the country. The world knows that we have been hit by a devastating storm, that killed hundreds of people and destroyed thousands of properties. I know we Filipinos are fighters, I know we will get through this. Help is already being given and I really hope it really goes to the victims.

Yesterday I celebrated my 29th birthday, I’m really getting old, in just another year I will be 30. I always say to my friends age is just a number but if you’re in that situation there is a bit of a worry. As you get old, a lot of things happen to the body. Diseases come out and your skin changes just to name a few. Sabi nga sa Olay commercial it’s OK to be 30 as long as you look 25 haha! As I age I care for my self more especially my skin and my health. Manganak lang ako I will go back to power Yoga again, my OB won’t allow me to practice, sabi nya walking walking lang muna daw.
Sabi ko dati pag 30 na ako saka na lang ako magbababy ulet but God has other plans for me. At least before I turn 30 we have to kids na! I would still have the strength to take care of them and be a sucker mom haha!.
We just had a small celebration, my husband went Asian with the food. He cooked Jap Chae, which is the Korean version of our Pansit Bihon and Asian style fried chicken. Pansit had to be present for long life all Filipinos know that. I also bought caramel cake from Goldilocks and I had to put candles because Uno likes to blow some candles.
I have to admit masarap talaga magluto ang asawa ko at masipag din magluto hehe! So on with the photos.
My birthday cake with 3 candles hehe.
1 Year Without Papa
I know this post is so late. This event happened in July and I was only able to post it now. Tinatamad lang talaga akong magblog. I have a lot of things to post but you know, I’ve been lazy lately because of my pregnancy. Masarap humiga higa na lang hehe!
It’s been a year since Papa passed away. We decided to eat at Shakey’s because I wanted to eat here. Yung buntis ang pinagbigyan hehe and also this brings back childhood memories. We used to eat here a lot when we were kids. It was back when it was still in La Azotea at Session Road.
Their Mojo potatoes are still superb pero ang konte na ng serving ngayon. Of course Uno loved the spaghetti, favorite nyang pasta yun. The pizza was good but I still like thick crust pizza more. Other than the food it was great to have lunch with the ones you love most.
Here are some of the photos I took.
Uno Counts + Bulol na Twinkle Star
I’ve been really so lazy to blog. I guess because I’m pregnant, all I do after work is eat, play games on Facebook and play with my son. I guess that’s a good thing because I get to spend more time with him before baby number 2 comes out.
So here’s a video of him counting and singing Twinkle Star. He’s a late talker so at 3 years old he’s still bulol but at least he learned a song and he can count 1-10. During this process I’ve learned that he’s a visual learner like me. He grasps a thing or whatever I’m teaching him better if he sees it. It’s time to buy flash cards then.
