Family Day: Isdaan at Calauan

'Sunday is family day' - this is most probably true for all Filipino families/ Whether you eat out together, you hear mass, visit a shopping mall or just stay at home for that one day in the the week when all members of the family are at home.

Well, I got married to a guy who's family loves good food, great pictures and loooong drives (hahaha!) So Sunday, December 16, 2012 - everyone, well except of course for Kuya JP cause he rarely joins us for things like this (it's his thing, OK!) - went for an approximately about 1 1/2 - 2 hours drive from Tanay to Calauan, Laguna to eat lunch - yes, just to have lunch (yes, why not?!) and of course take pictures - at Isdaan Floating Restaurant. We left at around 10am and arrived there around 1:00. There were so many people - and a lot of Koreans, too! - since it was lunch time I guess so we had to wait for an available table or slot or whatever you call it. The Koreans in the entrance area, my father-in-law said were looking at …

Summer in December

So, after my hospitalization, husband suggested that we do our first round of shopping. So who am I to decline that tempting offer? Besides, I promised myself I'd buy me some running shoes so that I can start my 'workout' right away. I'd make a separate post on my hauls that week because I haven't gotten my hands on a digital camera for weeks now so I don't have any decent picture to post bought but let me tell you that it includes - my new running shoes (which I have yet to use), cosmetics organizer, Raine's big ballerina shoes and Arkin's Lightning Mcqueen shoes.

Anyways, as usual, I left the twins with mama and my sisters and that's actually what this post is about. I saw these pictures of them in mama's laptop and they are sooo adorbs!



More pictures after the jump!

December makes me sick.

I've been feeling a little under the weather lately. It's almost Christmas I know! And not to spoil the spirit of this season or anything but December makes me sick, literally. Well, maybe because it's starting to get cold and people everywhere else are getting sick as well right?

The first week of this month I was hospitalized for less than 24 hours due to a really really bad case of gastritis. IV medications didn't even worked! I was writhing in pain on bed for 2 days already then when my mama told me that we should go to the hospital already and have me checked. Kenneth, my classmate from elementary was my nurse :) Good thing was, the IV meds finally worked and I was sent home right away. The twins visited me there of course and they kept on saying, "Mommy, doctor, wawa?" They were sooo cute saying that.

Then late last week I was feeling dryness in my throat - it's hard to swallow, even my own saliva. I thought I was getting better already because yest…

Parenting 101: Potty Training

After reading a few parenting articles about potty training, I have came to a decision that I would not be the parent that would force my children to pee or poop in the commode. Yes, we consume 1 or sometimes 1 1/2 big pack of XL Huggies diapers every week. It's really expensive, I kid you not. We also buy those generic diapers from the market because I found out that they also have the same quality as Huggies, and they are cheaper because they contain like 30+ diapers per pack, and they come in pull ups! I definitely recommend 'Baby Love'. But of course that would depend if your kid is 'hiyang' to that brand. As for mine, only Huggies, Drypers and Baby Love touches their butts :)
Okay, so as I was saying - I have decided that we should not force the twins to use the CR for those necessities. Even if I don't potty train them now, they would eventually potty train themselves on their own. It's a sick reasoning but hey - I have two kids to potty train and al…

Happy 3rd Birthday, SuperTwins!

We have reached another milestone as Arkin and Raine turned 3 last November 22. Whew, that was fast!




Time really is fast when you are having fun. You were just 'flutters' and 'bubbles' in mommy's tummy before but look at you now. Sometimes, you make mommy wonder how it feels like to have a twin because you two make it seem like its the best feeling in the world - having someone to play with, fight with, laugh with, cry with, throw tantrums with - I pray that you will never get tired of each other and you'll keep on looking after and that you'll continue to love each other more and more. You two make us very happy and proud! Happy 3rd birthday Arkin and Raine. We love you sooo much! 

And now here are some pictures from our simple celebration that night. Actually, we just ate and had them blow their birthday candles - that's the most exciting part for them and we had to repeat it for like - okay I forgot how many times already! 












And that's it! 
Happy bi…

Happy 3rd Wedding Anniversary, Beih ❤

If there was one love advice that my mama ever gave me, it would be this:

"Kung sino yung unang boyfriend mo, dapat sya na ang huli."

Thus, growing up, I only had one dream when it comes to love, boys and relationship - to marry my first boyfriend. (My friends can attest to that.)

My first boyfriend was my first love, my first kiss, my first heartbreak, my first guy bestfriend, my first everything. We had to break up after 6 years, just so we can get married, and start our family with our awesome twins.

And now, 3 years after - I am living my dream, being married to my 1st boyfriend, who's now my 1st husband (HAHA chosss!).

Happy third anniversary, Daddy! I love you much beih 💑 to ever after 💗

(Changes + Breakdown) Forgiveness

I haven't been myself these past few days. My - I haven't been myself these past few months. And I think it was just last weekend when the much 'awaited breakdown' happened. It was like a stored body of energy that needs to be released - well, blown out of proportion I think - but we all need that once in a while. I guess. 
I have known for a fact that I'm not the type who's giddy about changes. They scare the hell out of me. Just imagine, one night of change in my sleeping pattern, I'll pay for it for one whole month.I'd be restless, irritable and sleepy all the time (not that I'm not always sleepy). I'm too scared of changes - they make me insecure, intimidate me, freaks me out - I'm not just adventurous. And by adventurous I mean a person who is  always too excited and always looks out for changes, for new things. I think the only 'new' I like are 'new' gadgets, and that's it. 
So like 1 hour ago before I started typi…

Just an update!

Ive been meaning to write. Really. It's just that in between running after, feeding, bathing, playing and tumbling with 2 very hyper, energetic and inquisitive toddlers (i hate to say the word but yes- my babies are classified as toddlers now) - that and laundry, and folding clothes and of course sleep and loving my husband - I just can't find the time to squeeze in blogging. So I'm sorry but I guess it's safe to aay that I've got my hands full. No not just full. Overflowing!

So anyways, here's my twins now. Enjoy!

I know, thank God for Instagram huh?!
