Gelo , a self- confessed Japanese Anime / Manga addict bought this for Joaqui a few months ago. I was a bit apprehensive to let Joaqui read this because of the difference in Graphics. Jesus was drawn in a different way ( if you are familiar with Japanese/Manga graphics, you know what I mean) , so I first had a little reading before I let him browse through the pages.
He now enjoys this book , we read this 5 - 10x a day would you believe? And now that I am typing this, he saw the pic and keeps on touching the laptop screen.. He loves to read (im so thankful , nagmana sa akin ) , he's never choosy when it comes to reading materials. He even "reads" novenas LOL. He has 2 Children's bible too :) I am so glad , he knows Jesus at such a young age.

Gelo was supposed to have a car wash today, but decided the last minute because it was already a gloomy sky this morning, instead he cleaned the car interiors to make him sweat. Yeah, that's a form of exercise for him :) Now I am busy checking for some faucets for toilets , the one we have at the wash room has a little rust in the handles, and I want to replace it as soon as possible.
Despite the cleaning and searching, it is still a relaxing Sunday for us.

That's not really an instructed pose from me... he's watching tv , that explains this look. He's getting bigger and smarter everyday (syempre, anak ko yan! hehehe) ..
Just this morning,after breakfast , I was really amazed on how well he can converse already at 2 years and 3 months.
Mommy : " Common Joaqui, wash up time, then you'll change clothes"
Joaqui : (holding a crayon, while sitting in his study table, he looked up to me and said.. )
Later Mommy. Later.
Mommy : "Okay "
A few minutes after, I went back to him and said.."Common.." (and i gave him a nod)
Joaqui: "Later Mommy, I'm writing." ( and pretended to be soo busy with his colors and books)
I wasnt able to say anything , and just finished my bowl of Koko Krunch. After that, I asked our helper to carry him so I can wash him already. I know, he will answer me again with his favorite "later mommy" line kung di ko sya papakuha sa table nya.. hehehe
“This announcement was paid for by Epocrates.”
Each item arrived neatly packed in a classic Ralph Lauren blue box with ribbon and gift card, clothes wrapped in white RL tissue, sealed with a silver RL embossed sticker.. WOW! And did I say that the packaging is complimentary? Thanks to my sister, Ricca, for processing the order for me.
My mom showed it to me thru the webcam and I was really excited . Love it! Love it!
Summer Sale is still going on at the site (additional 25% on selected sale items) , and you can try the coupon code FREESHIP1X , for what else, free shipping :)
Arrgghh!! I wanna get some more items!
I have to cut down with browsing online stores too, its truly tempting plus it eats up my time while im online.
So gotta work for now while hubby is here to take care of Joaquin

You are unpredictable, adventurous, and always a little surprising.
You may miss out by not settling down, but you're too busy having fun to care.
My husband saw me one time when I was playing , and he told me that he wanted to play again online (also for fun) , to feel more relaxed after work. Online casino is not just with gambling really, but it actually give players some relaxation and excitement, all rolled with fun. It's a bit sad though when you lose, but it is sure to be a different feeling when you win. I still don't have plans of playing using my real money, Im just afraid for now that I might get really hooked with it. Im satisfied playing for fun. Try it out, and you will surely enjoy playing.

3D / 4D ultrasound also on schedule. With Joaqui, i had it during my 28th week at Asian Hospital. I am thinking to have it maybe on my 3oth week this time. Im one excited mom :)
Im nearing my 6th month, and i'll have my next check up on Saturday. Lil princess is getting really active inside too.
Not yet his birthday though, but I bought him this watch last weekend ... I gave him my budget and I let him choose the design . He opted for a rubber strap for everyday use since he has bad experiences with leather and stainless steels (acidic kasi eh). Our budget for his dream watch was set aside to make way for some major expenses this year. Hinay hinay sa gastos , mahina ang kalaban :)
This may not be his dream watch , but i know he really likes it.. He just can't wait to have it by next week. I also bought him some travel supplies since I saw his favorite brand was on sale.
Enjoy your new watch dad.. :)

It is always better to spend a few bucks with parking , than have regrets later on to what might happen to your car.

Wednesday, July 16, 2008
It is really advisable to have a safe and secure parking spaces for cars. We spent good amount of money buying a car, so we, as owners should treat it with care. If we don't have the space at home, we have the option of renting spaces strategically located near our places. That way we feel secure too. There are websites that can you out, and you can even apply for that needed space online. Yes, its that easy .

The other day , Zenni Optical was on FOX news! And i hurriedly checked on its website after seeing their sample eyeglasses. I am getting one for me and for my sister, Zenni Optical $ 8 Rx Eyeglasses are the best sellers, but they still have other models available at really good designs and prices.
Yesterday, Sunday, We had another dinner invitation, it was the birthday of Gelo's cousin at Seaside Macapagal. Before hitting the place, we went around MOA, and a lot of stores are on Sale. He grabbed shoes from Lacoste , i think he got it 40% off the real price. He also got himself Merrell shoes for everyday use. See, im not the only shoe person in the house. I didn't like anything
from the ladies sale section though, they offer sneakers mostly, im looking for flats. And its okay, Im busy shopping for something else.
Have a great monday friends !

So this is how it feels to have a princess ... Goodness, I spent $60 already in online shopping in as little as almost 4 hours after hearing the news.. Bwahahah!

This was just last March, and I think he gained weight again this time. Before, he was getting serious with his diet, eating Romaine Lettuce with Tuna or Chicken Breast for dinner. During breakfast, he would often have oatmeal or wheat bread. But he really just can't stop eating much, and he is blaming the food that we have at home which he finds just hard to resist. Hehehe. Just this evening, I reminded him to try to go on diet again, he might not be healthy now with his body. But he can't commit yet. I guess we are down to our last option, to try some diet pill that works.

My husband is now thinking of getting this game console, primarily because of exercising too. So its like hitting two birds with one stone , playing while exercising. We have some other game consoles here at home that he is currently hooked with , but after trying the Wii last weekend at the mall, and after seeing it's price online, he is now inclined of getting one too. I think this will help him lose weight if he will really play with it on a regular basis.

After his game, i went online to check my mails and assignments, while Joaqui watched Baby Einstein. He asked for some Koko Krunch to munch. Just had lunch , and it's still a long day for us.

Hyper and driven, you'll take your caffeine any way you can get it. Frappuccinos are good, but you'd probably chew coffee beans in a crunch!
I sooo miss coffee. I can't remember the last time I had one. Maybe the day before I found out I was pregnant? But its just the usual coffee with cream at home. I am thinking of getting a small cup of decaf on Saturday , during the MBAP's "meeting " =)

** one of his ballsssss... can you see the joy in his face ? He plays the basketball everyday ( i lost count on how many times ) , and he makes it a point that I am there when he plays. He loves giving me a high - five when he makes it to the goal. Then he wants me and our helper to shout .." GO , Joaqui! GO , Joaqui ! " when he is dribbling .. It gives me so much joy as a mom .. Cheerleader pa ko! Wait til you see me holding pom poms at Araneta. LOL.
I still want to upload some more pictures , but my laptop memory is running a bit low. I think we need to upgrade this one already.
