Merry Christmas! =)
the other day, i heard the 1st Xmas song on air this year.

nakasakay ako sa shuttle on the way home. while ang shuttle ay naka-tune in sa isa sa mga korning istasyon, hehe, they played Xmas medley. kaya naman natuwa na din ako.

wow, ang bilis! pasko na naman. ang saya-saya!
and i'm sure mas masaya to kasi 2yo na si lil' boy eh, medyo naa-appreciate na nya yung mga ganitong celebrations. and i'm excited for his gifts!!!
ano kaya gifts namin sa kanya this year?

speaking of gifts, funny coz i haven't bought anything yet. before kasi, august pa lang ay may mga napamili na akong xmas gifts at nakatambak na lahat sa room namin. talk about excited huh? pero naman, sa dalas kong mag-lunch out, di maiiwasang may mga makita kong 'nice buy'. kaya ayun, almost complete na ang list ko by september.

pero this year, siguro nga super busy ako! eh ni hindi ko pa nga nagawa yung list ko ng mga reregaluhan noh. hay! sana naman magawa ko bago mag-pasko, hehe.

yehey, September na tomorrow, as in Ber-month na. kaya Advanced Happy Holidays to all of you. may we all have a happy one this year.

pero before that, bertdey ko muna...=)

busy, busy, busy
sorry for not posting much and answering the tags...
been so busy lately!!! as in!

checking my blog, i haven't posted my parties for more than a month now, starting July 21. and that's 15 parties in all, plus 2 parties this coming Sunday. wow, 17 parties to blog!!!

pagdating ko kasi sa gabi, still can't blog kasi ang dami ko pang ginagawa. aside from lil' boy, may mga emails pa akong kailangan sagutin, clients na kailangang kausapin at party packages na kailangang buuin. kaya pag nag-open na ako ng blog, di na ako makapag-isip sa sobrang pagod at antok. not to mention na super bagal pa ng webshots ngayon kaya ang bagal ko ding mag-upload ng party pics, hay!

will find time soon, pramis! =)

for now, puro short blogs muna, para lang masabing nag-update ako, hehe.

One Day Sale...
was a success! =)

we were at Mabini Hall in QC Circle as early as 9am. syempre pa, family affair ito, kumpleto kami, hehe. nag-dalawang sasakyan din kami kasi di kami kasya sa isa eh, sa dami ba naman ng gamit namin na binenta, parang biglang lumuwag sa bahay namin, haha.

we were already ready before 10am.

and by that time, dinumog na din kami ng mamimili, naks! yung mga nag-jogging at nag-exercise sa area, nagdatingan at bilihan lahat, kaaliw!

at eto ang aking lil boy habang kaming lahat ay busy sa pagbebenta. nagdala pa kami ng sariling folding bed para pwestuhan nya, sabi sa inyo dinala namin halos buong bahay namin eh, hehe.

it was fun, it's our 1st time and enjoy pala mag-tiangge. well atleast if madami ka benta. bonding moment din naming lahat, including my parents. pero medyo magastos din kasi food pa lang, 6 heads agad kami, incluing lil boy. =)

sayang lang because it rained hard, twice pa! pero kahit ganun, we still earned a hefty amount of money. kaaliw kasi wala naman kaming puhunan dahil puro old clothes and things lang yun, mga nakatambak lang sa bahay, naging pera pa. =)

imagine, we earned almost P6k from the P10/20/50 price tags, isn't that great?

napansin ko lang, di mabenta yung mga baby clothes ni lil' boy na branded. naka-sale na kasi lahat ng damit nya, 3 for P100! ang naubos lang yung mga Pooh at mga cartoon characters, pero yung mga branded, dedma sila, hehe. inaalok ko na nga yung mga Guess, OshKosh, Polo, etc., told them na original yun at mahal yun sa mall, now it's just P35 each, at brand new pa nga yung iba dahil di naman nagamit ni lil' boy eh, pero di pa din nabili. owel, i guess the crowd is not familiar with branded clothes. mas kilala nga naman nila yung mga cartoon characters. =)

at yung iba naman, pabalik-balik sa venue. may iba pa na naaliw kami kasi pagbalik nila, suot na nila yung mga shirts ni hubby na nabili nila, talk about excited huh. =)

and since it was successful and we all had fun, we're now cooking up a repeat!!! tentative date is on Sept 16, same venue. yun kasi ang request nung karamihan, bumalik daw kami at kapag bumalik kami, itaon naman daw naming sweldo para may pera sila.

ok, your wish is our command, we'll be back soon.

so kelangan ko na namang maghalungkat ng mga gamit ulit...=)

One Day SALE!

you are all invited to our One Day Sale this Sunday at Bulwagang Mabini in QC Circle. you'll find a LOT of brand new and 2nd hand items at their lowest prices ever.
or in case you won't find anything that catches your fancy, you can always have a stroll or family picnic in the Circle area. and atleast you've met us, hehe.

we're all wives (& mostly mommies) so there'll be a lot of baby things, clothes, toys and other stuffs that you'll probably need. =)

so check us out and see me at my booth.

side kwento:
ang nanay ko, excited sa garage sale, last week pa lang eh naka-pack na lahat ng gusto nyang ibenta, at ang dami! as in! mukhang sa kanya pa lang ay puno na yung table namin, hehe.

last night lang ako naghanap ng mga ibebenta, inuna ko ang gamit ni lil' boy at ni hubby. bukas na yung sa akin kasi napakadami nun eh. lahat ng di na magkasyang mga damit ko, sus, super dami nun, haha.

habang nililigpit ko yung mga gamit ni lil' boy, puro pigil naman ang aking asawa. walang sinabi kundi "uy, wag yan, sayang yan", "ang mahal nyan ah", "di pa nya nasuot yan di ba?". hehe, eh lahat naman talaga di na nya masuot kasi maliit na noh. and may mga iba nga na di pa talaga nagamit kasi nakaliitan na, some are even branded clothes. pero ang mga nike shoes ni lil' boy, di daw talaga pwedeng i-tiangge, hehe.
halos nga lahat sinama ko na eh, kasi puro blue naman yun at Pooh, di na magamit sa next baby ko. kasi girl at Hello Kitty naman yung next eh. hay, WISH! pero if boy ulit, buy na lang ulit ng bago. haha.

pati nga mga toys st stuff toys, ang dami kong sinama eh. parang biglang lumuwag yung room namin. =)

excited na ako, sana makabenta ko at mabawi ko man lang ang rental fee ko. feeling ko malugi pa ako kasi bente-bente lang ang mga presyo namin. eh buong family kami dun para masaya. mukhang sa pagkain pa lang, talo na ako. hehe.

hope to see you there...

My TV!
only from Smart...

the country's 1st (and only) mobile TV right in the palm of your hand. TV anytime, anywhere...

if there is one thing i've wished mobile phones would have that time, it would be TV. not radio, nor camera, MMS, videocall or internet. but of course, these are also necessities in our modern age. but i think TV would be the best additional feature knowing that Filipinos are so addicted to it, me included.

when our Department had an excersice early last year, this mobile tv was our project. if i remember it right, we did cases, business requirements and presented it to our Heads. we were informed that this was one of the major projects in the pipeline so we needed to make it realistically good. ang working title pa ng group namin before was SmarTV!

and so from then on, i saw hope. hope that 1 day, magkaka-tv na din ang mobile phone ko. and hope that this will be soon dahil baka ma-chuchu na naman sa kabilang kumpanya at mauna pa sila, mwehehe.

it's our department who handled the major development of this project, with the help of some CPs of course. and so this July, we've launched the FIRST and ONLY mobile TV in the country!

it's totally cool, hip and convenient especially to Moms like me! i can have atleast 30 minutes of my me-time talking to friends while drinking coffee, leaving my son entertained and glued to Cartoon Network of MyTV.

i can be entertained on the road during heavy traffic, while waiting for clients on a meeting, or catching a much-awaited show even if i'm out of the house.

so what are you waiting for, try it to feel the excitement. it has initially 11 channels and available for FREE until August 31. after which, there's a less than P500 monthly charge for unlimited viewing.

kaya kayo...lipat na! =)

new toy
last Sunday, when i was running sa Megamall for the stupid balloon permit (detailed kwento when i blogged about my 5 parties), i saw this basketball toy that i'm sure, lil boy will really like. i wanted to stop and buy it, but i just can't because i was in a total rush.
and so the next day during my lunchtime of course, i went to SM Makati and bought the toy.
and as expected, my lil' boy was so excited to see his new basketball. and he was playing it for i think more than an hour, non-stop.
since he loves playing basketball sa arcade, i thought that this will suffice when we're home, mini-arcade ang dating. kasi complete with sound effects din eh, tipong "2 Points!", "3 Points!", "Go, Go, Go!". kaya yan, tuwang-tuwa ang anak ko.

at dahil nga pareho silang addict mag-ama sa basketball, super nagkakasundo sila sa new toy NILA! meron pa kasing '2-players' yun eh, kaya naglalaban pa silang dalawa. at ang aking asawa, pwede daw ba nyang dalhin sa office yung toy, haha, na-addict. sabi ko sayo inangkin na din nya yung toy eh. kulang na lang magpabili din sya ng sarili nya, hehe.

another bonding moment ng aking mag-ama. and another happy moment for me dahil i know na super happy si lil' boy sa toy nya. =)

ang madaya kong anak
i miss blogging about my lil' boy...
so these next 3 blogs will be about him.

since we don't want him to be over-exposed sa panonood ng dvds like Baby Einstein, Barney, Sesame and the like. we try to limit his watching to 1 per night.

so eto ang usapan namin:
lil' boy: mama, watch!
mama: ok, pero 1 lang watch mo ha.
lb: opo!
m: after ng 1, stop na ha, dede na then sleep na, ok?
lb: ok!
m: ilan usapan nating watch mo?
lb: 1!
m: 1 lang ha...
lb: opo!

after watching the movie...

lb: mama, watch!
m: o finish na, stop na natin.
lb: watch, watch!
m: what watch, ilan ba usapan nating watch mo?
lb: 2!!!

nyahaha, 2yo pa lang, madaya na! =)

bye-bye baby! =(
huhuhu! the sacrifices i have to make...kaiyak! =(

my parents need to check our house in Tagaytay due to the heavy rains this week. and since hindi sila makaalis ng house on weekdays dahil nasa office ako, they're planning to go there this weekend.

ang problema, i have 5 parties this weekend! opo, lima, at lalagariin ko na naman yun as usual. no problems on the parties kasi kaya ko yun. the problem is who'll take care of lil' boy while we're all away?
we thought of just bringing him to my IL's during the whole day that we're out. ang kaso, 2 whole days sya dun na walang kasama sa amin, baka hindi sya sanay. i know he can play with his cousins all day, pero paano kapag napagod at inantok, wala ako o ang Mom ko para patulugin sya.
di ko din naman sya pwedeng isama sa parties ko (as much as i want to!!!) kasi unfair naman yun sa clients ko, di naman sya invited eh. tsaka kahit na kasama yung helper namin, sa akin pa din yun didikit eh, kaya wala din akong magagawa sa party kapag sinama ko.
never pa din naman kasi naming iniwan si lil' boy with helper alone sa house, kaya hindi din yun option.

so my parents wanted na isama na lang si lil' boy sa Tagaytay. of course ayoko sana, kahit na overnight lang yun, di ako sanay!!! hindi kasi kami naghihiwalay nun eh. at baka hindi sya makatulog kapag hindi ako katabi. or is it more the other way around, hindi ako makakatulog!!! huhuhu.

i discussed this with hubby and since wala nga kaming choice (dahil kahit sya ay pinag-leave ko pa sa office this sat para tulungan ako), pumayag na din kami. kaya ayun, they are all leaving tomorrow for Tagaytay. huhuhu.

di bale, next week, kami naman mag-Tagaytay. =)

hay, the sacrifices talaga of working. kasi naman, if i'm not working anymore, eh di sana pwedeng magpunta ang parents ko dun on weekdays, dahil nasa house lang ako nun w/ lil' boy. how i really wish...

but for now, puyatan muna this weekend sa dami ng gagawin ko. i've been sleeping at 2-3am since Wednesday, dami ko kasing ginagawa eh. but i'm happy, basta para sa parties, happy ako, hehe.

goodluck to me...

fyi lang, di na tumuloy ang parents ko sa Tagaytay last weekend. they are worrying kasi baka hanapin ako ni lil' boy sa gabi dahil nga di sya sanay na hindi ako katabi. o siguro naawa lang sa akin ang parents ko dahil alam nilang malulungkot ako kapag nahiwalay sa akin ang anak ko. =)

exactly 1 year from now, it’ll be 08/08/08.
and hopefully, 1 year from now, i’ll be giving birth to my 2nd baby, a “princess” this time.

based on the Chinese Calendar, if i conceive this November, chances are, it will be a baby girl. so i’m in high hopes that He’ll allow me to take care of his girly angel this time. =)

why 08/08/08?
wala lang, feeling ko lang swerte yung date, hehe.

seriously, being a planning freak that i am, i’ve already planned for this date from the time hubby and i were discussing about how many kids we want after lil’ boy. and since we want the next baby to come when our 1st born is 3yo, so that will be 2008.

and for the day, why 08? para sunod-sunod kami.
lil’ boy was born on the 9th, hubby on the 10th, while i was born on the 11th. then our anniversary was on the 12th. so ayaw ko naman gawing 13th ang bday ng baby ko, so better na 8 na lang.

now for the month, why august? para magkasunod kami, hehe.
we have celebrations every other month, sa akin lang pumalya, kaya gusto ko na sa august na sya para every other month pa din sila.
hubby’s bday is on Feb, lil’ boy on Apr, our anniv on Jun, then Aug sana si baby at Sep naman ako.

so yun, kaya nabuo ang 08/08/08.
ang tanong na lang, san kami sa November? para buohin si 2nd baby? hahaha, wink*wink!

FYI, CS po ako so hopefully, i can execute my birthing plans. =)

but now on a really serious note ... am i ready? are we ready?
hubby and i discussed this topic a number of times already, and i believed we were all set by then. i even blogged that already before here.
side kwento: upon reading again that previous blog, parang super tagal pa nun noh, 768 days to go pa, more than 2 years. but now, 3 months na lang! hay, time flies so fast talaga when you're in love, hehe. lapit na Mahal!!! hahaha! =)

even my OB advised us to have our 2nd baby soon, because we’re getting older na daw, hehe.

we’ve actually informed our parents, families and close friends who’ve been asking the usual question “kelan nyo susundan?” about our plans. so i guess we were really decided by then.

but now that it’s nearing, i’m beginning to ask myself “are we ready for another baby?”
another challenge, physically, mentally, financially and emotionally!

physically, lil’ boy will be 3yo by then. a super kulit toddler w/ a nursing and crying 2nd baby, can i handle that? not to mention that lil’ boy is so close to me and still breastfeeding directly until now. will i be unfair to my 2nd baby because obviously, divided ang time ko with my 2 kids? and now that i’m quite busy with work on weekdays and my party business on weekends, can i still exclusively breastfeed my baby until 1.5 yo, like what i did with lil’ boy?
fyi, i only went back to my party business when lil boy turned 1yo, kasi nga, full-time mom ako on weekends before eh. so how will i do it now with my 2nd baby?

mentally, sa super dami kong iniisip sa family ko, sa anak ko, sa asawa ko, sa work ko at sa business ko, ewan ko kung kayanin ko pang magdagdag ng iisipin, hehe.

financially, no need to explain, alam na lahat ng nanay yun. at everytime nasa mall ako, ewan ko ba pero lagi akong nagpupunta sa mga damit at gamit na pang-girls. super cute kasi eh, ang kikay! kaya pangarap ko talaga ang girl. kaya nga sabi ko kay hubby, humanda na sya kapag nagka-girl kami, kasi malamang, doble ang gastos. sa super daming cutey items for baby girls, i know that i can’t get enough of it. =)dadaigin namin ang terno-ternong Nike nilang mag-ama. hahaha.
side kwento ulit: last Monday, we went to Eastwood, at syempre pa, dumaan kami sa Nike. he saw this cute Nike shoes for baby girls, sabi nya bagay daw yun for “----“. haller, pati si baby girl, gusto nya naka-Nike din. =)

and last, emotionally!
i remembered one time, may sinabi yung isang ka-YM ko na parang “i don’t think i can still love someone as much as i’m loving my son now”. and the topic was having baby no.2. that time, i was still pregnant and can’t relate yet. so parang feeling ko, over naman to! gaano ba kalaki ang pagmamahal mo sa unang anak mo? tsaka if ever, yung pangalawa naman eh anak mo pa din noh. those were the questions na i didn’t imagine eh haharapin ko din pala ngayon.

now i understand where she was coming from. i now feel the “love” she was saying. and only Moms can relate to this feeling. parang super love ko si lil’ boy na hindi ko alam if kaya ko pang maibigay yung ganung klaseng pagmamahal at dedikasyon sa 2nd baby ko, lalim noh? hehe.

but i guess Moms of 2 kids or more will say otherwise. and i know na kapag nandyan na din ako sa stage na yan, maiintindihan ko na din ang feeling ng may overflowing love for ALL kids. i guess it comes naturally for a mother. and i’m proud that i am one! =)

so, am i ready? i’m confident that i’ll be!
i’m taking all the necessary steps to prepare me for an additional blessing. i’m also starting to talk to lil’ boy about it, i’m prepping him to start sharing my breast to somebody else (not to his Dad of course, mwehehe).
but of all the preps, ang pinaka-mahirap yata for me ay ang magpapayat. waaah! i can’t get pregnant agad with my weight now. so i know that i have to take this seriously because it’s just 3 months left. diet-exercise-diet! so help me Lord! =)

but if all else fails, i know that the Lord will give me my 2nd angel in His time. and whether He’ll grant me a girl or a boy, doesn’t really matter. He knows what’s best for us so i trust Him completely.

just please wish me luck and help me pray to prepare us for this. =)

buntisan na naman!!! hahaha, ang laswa pakinggan! =)

movies galore
thank God i’m starting to rekindle my relationship with the movie theater, hehe. i almost forgot how it looked like when i got pregnant and gave birth, wasn’t able to watch any movie for almost 2 years i think. =(

i was able to watch this last july 13, when all the people were already excited and talking about Harry Potter and Die Hard! and guess with whom, with my best friend Jing na naawa lang sa akin at sinamahan ako kahit napanuod na nya yung movie, isn’t that pathetic? =)
well, atleast i was able to watch it. galing-galing, grabe. i love Bumblebee and his radio, kaaliw!

fyi, hubby watched this on the 3rd day of showing, dapat kasama ako kaya lang i was so tired and not in the mood to watch that time, kaya ayun, siya na lang mag-isa (yeah, yeah, as far as i know, mag-isa lang sya, nyahaha!).

we were able to watch this last july 28 with hubby & lil’ boy.
being someone who’s VERY afraid of rats, this movie didn’t interest me at first. but since hubby thought that lil’ boy will like it, so we watched. and indeed, lil’ boy enjoyed the movie, he was smiling, laughing and watching seriously. but fell asleep towards the end, sa pagod siguro, tsaka ang lamig kasi sa sinehan eh, hehe.

i also found it cute, especially those cutie little things, like the egg omelet Remy prepared, haha. and the story is nice also, i was hooked til the end. though there were still few “eeewww” scenes, lalo na kapag super dami na nila. at kapag ang location ay sa canal, and yung nasa ref storage silang lahat and kinakain yung stocks ng resto. para kasing nare-relate ko in real life eh, eeew talaga! hahaha.

i was able to watch this yesterday, july 31, again with my bestfriend Jing. and not because hubby watched it already, but because di nya type yung mga ganito (aka “takot sya!”, hahaha).
at dahil "di nya nga type ang mga ganito", i’ve missed a LOT of horror movies like Sukob, Feng Shui, The Grudge, The Ring, etc.

in fairness, kahit GMA Films sya, maganda yung movie, maganda yung story, mapapaisip ka sa ending. siguro kasi partnership w/ Viva Films eh, hehe. sensya na, solid-Kapamilya ako eh. :)
though hindi sya nakakatakot (well, atleast for me), nakakagulat lang. tsaka parang ang corny lang kasi nag-a-acrobats yung mga spirits. parang haller, gayahin ba ang foreign horror films. nagiging comedy tuloy, nawawala yung momentum ko, hehe.
and since it’s my 1st time (again) to watch a horror film sa sinehan, na-miss ko yung sigawan. aliw ako kasi para kaming nakasakay sa Space Shuttle, sabay-sabay kaming sumigaw. hahaha.

oh well, i’m sure i’ll be waiting for the Part 2! pero si Juday at Jolina na lang yun eh. hahaha, spoiler ba?

wow! i had 3 movies in July! congrats to me! =)
