How are you?

How are you my blog friends?  I miss blogging so much.  It's been I think more than 3 months since my last post.  Asides from being kinda lazy, I was also busy when hubby arrived from work last May.  Another reason also was that her grandmother is in the hospital.  So, FAMILY is the most important thing in the world.

Yesterday afternoon, when I brought my daughter to to the school many Preschool students are wearing a red Spooky Spectacles that you can get free from every Happy Meal from McDonalds. So, after doing some errands before I fetch my daughter at the school, I went to McDonalds to get a Happy Meal for her and for her baby sister. They were so happy with the Spooky Spectacles, super cute. hubby flew to Manila just this Saturday then he went to the office for final briefing and get some things needed. His flight details was Manila-Dubai-New York. Just this Sunday, 

Hubby left for Dubai last Saturday at 5:35pm and arrived their at 4:15am. Then I received another text from him that he arrived in New York Airport and then drove by land for 1 hour to New Jersey where he will be joining with the rest of the crew. Hubby told me that the weather was very cold, when he texted me, it was 5 degrees Celsius. As of now it is already -1 degrees Celcius. Super cold, BBBRRR....

been lazy

Hello do all, how are you guys doing?  Well, it's been 4 months since my last post.  I do not know but that months that past, I was kinda lazy making blogs because maybe only few are visiting my blog or nobody visits.  Will just coup up with my blog.  Will narrate things that happened for the past few days.

Last Thursday,we harvested our air potato. We cooked it that tonight together with pork, carrots and tomato sauce. This is a different potato, it is color green unlike the ordinary potato that is color yellow. We will post the finish dish tonight for our dinner. According to Wikipedia that Air potato can grow extremely quickly, roughly 8 inches per day, and eventually reach over 60 feet long. It typically climbs to the tops of trees and has a tendency to take over native plants.

Yesterday, we went to S&R to buy some stuffs here at home. After that, we ordered pizza S&R Pizza for take out for our late lunch. It was a combo flavored pizza and it was very yummy. The toppings were olives, green pepper, pepperoni and some meat. We did not finish all the pizza, we saved it for that night's dinner.

This afternoon, me and my 2 mother friends went to the bank to do some errands. After that, we were starving. So, we went to this Restaurant in a known hotel. They serve Buffet Merienda which will start at 2:30pm. The served halo-halo, bake macaroni, green veggie salads, fruits, breads and brownies with matching 2 kinds of juices. We just stayed there eating, chit-chatting and browsed the internet through their wifi connection. After that, went directly to the school to fetch our kids.

been busy

It's bee almost 2 months since my last blog.  Well, I will update you with some of the activities that I have.

  • Thank God that our internet connection is back.  Our old PLDT connection was no more, I do not know how. As what I have heard and read lately, broken sea cables cause web speed woes in our country.  What I know was that the connection is slow but what happened to ours was that there was really no internet connection at all.  That is why we applied for a new subscription under Globe Tattoo @ Home for P999 (3mbps).
  • Last march 28 was my daughters Merit Awarding/Recognition.  She received an Very Cooperative merit from her class.  

  • 2 days after the recognition, we ate lunch at Blackbeard's Seafood Island at SM City.

  • 2 days ago, we had a chance Skyping with hubby while he was in Houston Texas.  The kids really enjoyed talking to him.  Cannot wait to see him next month.

  • Yesterday, we went to church for some activity.  Children are the Church of today....not only recipients in ministry but also participants. Thanks to those behind OCC and Samaritan's Purse for being a channel of His blessings.   These goods from US should be distributed last Christmas but it was delayed, so they distributed them yesterday.

This smile is for our friendship who's now based on Denver.  We really miss you so much!

baby is sick

It's been a while since my last entry after my father died. Thanks to all who condoled thru Facebook.

Around 4pm today, we arrived home from the hospital.  Baby Raine was admitted last Wednesday.  She vomited twice then had pneumonia and thank God wala siyang dengue.  Praying that she will recover fast here at home.

Papa's Burial

Sad to say but that is life.  My father died last January 22, 2014.  We really thought his sickness was okay and thought that he could be discharge from the hospital but it made him worst.  Aspiration Pneumonia was the main problem.  As what I have said on my previous entry, it only started with dizziness then high blood pressure and mild stroke.  The wake lasted only for 3 days, the burial was yesterday (January 25) at 9am.  Thank you to friends and relatives who condole with us and God bless.

Christmas 2013 & New Year 2014

Happy New Year To All! Before I get to the happy story, will tell you the kinda sad party story. To those who did not know, my dad was confined at the hospital last December 6. At first, it only started with a dizziness. Then my mom said let's go to the hospital for check-up. When they arrived at the hospital, my dad had high blood pressure. The blood pressure did not go down so he was confined so that there will be series of tests. The next day, my mom called and said that he had mild stroke and he has problem swallowing. He had also pneumonia, so he needs to be transferred at the ICU. He was restrained because he wants to go down and go home, he also wants to pull the tubes that are attached to him like the NGT, dextrose and catheter. We stayed at the ICU for 2 weeks, then when the doctor said we can go home and continue treating him and feed him using the NGT. But my dad is hard-headed, he won't listen to us. He removed the NGT tube twice and we were giving him food through spoon-feed slowly because he might choke. But he was sick more, that's why he went back to the ICU December 26 because he already lacked oxygen. As of today, his lungs are congested and the phlegm have bacteria.

Well, that's life.  But for me, the Christmas and New Year celebration will not stop especially for the kids. Before Christmas Eve, my brother, sister-in-law and their daughter celebrated with us after dinner. They brought mango charlotte cake, chicken teryaki and sparkling wine. December 25 was my daughter's birthday, RAINE. Every Christmas day, we celebrate at my cousin's place. All of us bring food (potluck lunch) and I brought birthday cake so that she can blow. My mother didn't come with us because she took care of my dad. After the potluck party we went to my in-law's place for sleepover.

gifts that my daughters received.

For new year, I baked Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.  It was my 1st attempt, for me it was kinda sweet but they said it was okay.  Well, we all know that fireworks are banned in Davao.  So, we only blew our torotots to welcome the year 2014.  January 1 was the birthday of my nephew, we celebrated it at my aunt's place.  As usual, it was a potluck dinner with relatives.


Torotot for New Year...

Happy New Year, during my nephew's birthday

Lastly, just this Saturday we also had a post-Christmas Party with my mommy friends at school where our kids are classmates.  Our friendship started last year when Mika started school.  We had food, drinks, exchange gifts, videoke and games.  Here's a game we played and it was really funny!  Click this link --> Fruit Salad

Hope you guys enjoy reading my blog.  Will blog-hop too after this.  Once again, Happy NewYear and God bless you all!!!
