To all mommies, soon to be mommies and gusto maging mommies (oh let include also, all the single dads out there), I’d like to share with you my baby Anika’s beauty routine..
I just have to post this!
The other day, while I was paying for Anika’s new bottle nipples in Rustan’s, I received a text message from Girlie:
I love this past week. I’ve received so much love from everyone!
First, Janine (my friend all the way back from my MDC days), said that she read my books in my wishlist blog here in The Family Girl Blog. So this angel sent me through email a complete set of Percy Jackson E-books!!! Not only that! She also sent The Twenties Girl and The Last Song E-books! I so love them!! Kahit na nakabili na ako ng book one ng Percy Jackson and yung The Twenties Girl (because meron na silang paperback, Php 265 only), I still appreciated all the ebooks!!! Thanks so much mare!! Love yah!!
Second, when I stepped on the weighing scale this morning, I found out that I lost two pounds already!!! Walang diet yan ha! I’m thinking of not eating rice na talaga from tomorrow on. Okay, serious na talaga ako ngayon. Hindi na nakakatawa yung stress ko every morning while looking for something to wear to work. My. Clothes. Need. To. Fit. Me. Again. Period.
In the middle of our shopping escapade, the strap of my bag (the one I featured in my Bag Raid) broke. I placed safety pins to connect it so that I wouln’t have to carry it using my arms. I felt so sad. Chaps pa naman yang bag na yan and it wasn’t cheap. Ang bilis masira. I’ve only used it once before and ngayon, gamit ko siya ng one week lang, sira na. Hay! You can’t have everything naman. Okay lang. I told Girlie if she likes it, she can have it na. Paayos niya na lang siguro yung strap or something.
Anyways, thanks so much for all the love.
Special shoutout too to my friends who take time to text, email, fb message and YM me, to tell me that they love my blog. You guys are my inspiration! Thank you sooo very much!
Love love love!!!
Anika had her ears pierced this morning at Asian Hospital. Her pedia (who we all love!), Dra Rose Capeding, wasn’t the one who did it because her ear piercing gun was broken. So she referred us to one of her friends, Dra. Josephine Cruz.
Our appointment was at 10am so we left our house at 830am and went to pick up Alvin’s mom at their house. Buti naman hindi masyado matraffic so we were at Asian na by 10am. However, we had to wait a while coz the doctor hasn’t arrived yet.
Here are the photos and I believe they will do more justice than me telling you the story =)
Genneva, a gold trading business company, had their soft opening of their Philippine office last Monday, July 12, 2010.
What were we doing there!? SECRET =p Hahaha!
Well, we came to support Tito Philip, Mr. Tan etc because they were my mom’s friends. Alvin and I were the project managers of the construction of their office which is located at the 28th floor of the prestigious Pacific Star Building in Makati City. I have yet to see the the finished look of Geneva’s office but Alvin said that it looks really nice. They finished the construction only last week in time for the soft opening. I will post the pictures as soon as I can go there. Weekends are super jam-packed for me so I will really try hard to find time to go there and take pictures.
Dinner was held at the function room of Avenue Hotel in Makati Avenue. Avenue Hotel isn’t a 5 star hotel so I wasn’t expecting much with the food but surprisingly, super sarap siya! Lalo na the brownies! Yummy!!!
My blog design’s back to how it looked like before.
Michelle Pineda told me that she wanted to post a comment but the comment button wasn’t working. I thought it was an isolated case but my friend, Divine posted in my Facebook wall that she can’t post a comment too!!! So, I tried doing it and guess what!? The comment button wasn’t working pala talaga! Sheeesh!! Kaya pala ang tatahimik niyo! Akala ko, dinedead-ma niyo na ako! Lol!!!
I got tamad finding a way to fix it kaya I brought back na lang the old template and thankfully, hindi nabura ang mga (what do they call that?) ibang chuvaness ko =)
I’ll write tomorrow na lang guys again ayt? Im so sleepy na… My mag-ama are snoring here beside me and nakakainggit sila! I’ll join them na muna in dreamland =)
Love! Love! Love!
I love writing blogs.
I started writing in my then Friendster account and in my multiply site way back in 2004. The entries that I had in my multiply site, I transferred to The French-Tipped Engineer. This site was written by a pre-engaged me. This is very raw and reading it now, I realized — ang EMO ko nun!! Comparing my two blogs, the past and current one, I definitely matured a lot. I wanna credit Alvin for that. I had na somebody kasi na who really can bring out the best in me. Kelangan lang talaga may katakutan din ako, otherwise, I’ll be forever in that obnoxious stage na I don’t need you in my life therefore take me (BS and everything) or leave me, care ko!
Anyways, this blog entry isn’t about that. Na-carried away lang ako. Choz! Haha!
Eto talaga yung gusto ko sabihin..
I started The Family Girl blog when I was bored-sick-out-of-my-mind during my bed rest days. I’m not much of a writer but, magaling ako magkwento. I’m the “I have kwento!” girl in the office. So I made kwento all things about anticipating our baby’s birth and things about family life. That kept me going until, I included na din stuff about me, what I think and even about Girlie, Anika’s yaya.
Then I came across other blogs that inspired me to write more. Then my friends started messaging me and texting me that they love daw my blog! They read it daw everyday. Reading my blog was just like me talking to them daw. And they learn a lot din daw. (Ayan ha, ang daming daw, meaning sila talaga nagsabi nun!) I’m so happy when I heard all of these. Kaya, everyday, I make effort to think about interesting things to write about.
As a blogger, I also want to share with you guys my favorite blogs. They are far better writers than I am, that’s why inspiration ko sila.
First is my friend’s Ginger Palma-Arboleda’s blog with you can view HERE. Bongga siya magkwento and she keeps it interesting kaya hindi ako nagnonosebleed while reading her stories =)
Third is the Facebuko.com. Super duper funny. Dali, click and and you’ll see why!
Fourth is the blog by Jenni Epperson. It’s so kikay and fashionable, i love it!
Fifth, is the Serendipity blog by Tina Tagle. I don’t exactly know who she is. All I know is she’s a rich and fabulous mom of three who has super nice clothes and things! She’s so funny also in her blogs and I wanna be like her when I get to that age.
O, yan na muna for now. Tapos na lunchbreak namin eh. I have to go back to work na ulit.
I hope you enjoyed reading my favorite blogs!!
Love, love, love!!!
It’s the 15th day of the month and it’s bills paying time again for the Sombrero household.
I love my hubby so much. He’s so funny sometimes, nakakaloka na. So, this morning after he dropped me off at the office, I got inspired to write about his “Alvinisms”
One day, we were strolling inside Greenbelt 5 he suddenly said to me:
Alvin: Babe, sige na buy na your cracks. (Pointing to a store)
I was like, “Ha, what cracks?!” Then I saw where he was pointing to.. “Ahh.. CROCS yan babe..” =)
Alvin: Parehas din yun! Ano ayaw mo?!
Fleur: Hindi… joke lang.. Cracks nga eh! Lets go!
One time naman, I was so sad about something. He was trying to comfort me..
Alvin: Wag ka na ma-sad babe.. Bibilhan na lang kita ng couch.
Fleur: Eh meron na tayo eh..
Alvin: Ha? Hindi… Yung bag na gusto mo..
Fleur: Babe, COACH yun, hindi couch!
Alvin: Parehas din yun!
Then this morning, we were listening to 89.9 radio station on our way to the office. Mojo Jojo was making taray about something
Alvin: Siguro, etong si Mojo Jojo, primavera to.
Fleur: Primavera? baka prima donna babe?
Alvin: Oo yun!
Haha! Ginawang computer program ang dj! Kaloka!
Then while we were making kwentuhan,
Alvin: Alam mo ba babe, nagalaga ako ng kalapati dati? Mga seven yun..
Me: Talaga? Ang dami naman!!
Alvin: Konti nga lang yun eh. Yung kapitbahay namin mga 20 to 30 as in nagcuculture talaga sila.
Me: Baka nagbebreed ng kalapati babe..
Alvin: Ay oo.. Breed pala
Ginawang bacteria ng asawa ko ang kalapati haha!
Funny noh? We are like that everyday, masisiraan ka talaga ng bait!
Pero my friends, bawal asarin si Alvin about this when you see each other ha! Baka magalit at patigilin ako magblog! Ako lang ang pwede mangasar dun! *big grin on my face*
Sorry for those who cannot understand this blog. I decided to write it in verbatim because it wouldn’t be as funny if I translate it na to English =)
Have a nice week everyone! Love! Love! Love!
I have always been a fan of ABS-CBN program SNN’s celebrity bag raid. Im so curious of what these celebrities carry in their bags. Sometimes I make gaya what they use and find them naman na recommendable talaga. So for The Family Girl Blog, I will be starting a series of Bag Raids. Siyempre to start, let’s raid my bag muna! LET’S GOW!
