Saturday with Jared

February 27, 2011 at 4:21 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Our Saturdays (and Sundays) are usually just spent at home, except when there’s an event to attend to. Kung gagala lang, I prefer going out on a Sunday because there’s no traffic jam almost anywhere. Yesterday, there were 2 events to attend to – baptism at 10am in Makati and 1st birthday party at 3:30pm in Greenmeadows (both celebrants are daughters of officemates). As expected, di kami nakaattend nung binyag kasi di kami aabot dahil medyo tanghali na naman nagising si Jared, at syempre pati si Mommy hehe…plus wala pa kami gift haha!

Around 2pm we left for Greenmeadows, medyo malayo yun from our place so kelangan maaga umalis. And we were supposed to go to Eastwood before the party to buy a gift for the baptism so I can give it on Monday. Kaso medyo alanganin na, kahit sinabi ko sa officemate ko na mali-late kami, dumiretso na din kami kasi ayoko maubusan ng parking hehe. Syempre nagenjoy si Jared, running around with the other kids, lalo na nung dumating na si Jollibee. Love nya si Jollibee, nilapitan nya talaga at tinatawag pa “bee bee!” at ni-hug sa hita haha! Kakaaliw tingnan, na-aamaze talaga sya pag nakikita nya si Jollibee na mascot, di halos maalis ang tingin. Nung cake candle blowing di na kami sumali kasi matatapos na yung party di pa kami tapos kumain, eh nasa side lang na namin yun, kinakalabit nya si Jollibee hehe!

After the party, we immediately proceeded to the nearby church, Christ the King, to attend the anticipated Mass. I love going back where we got married. ๐Ÿ™‚

Before going home, we had a quick “shopping” at Eastwood..first time ko pumunta sa Eastwood mall, usually dun lang ako sa area ng Fuente circle. Naaliw si Jared sa dancing fountain, with matching “wow!” pa sya haha! Umuwi din kami agad kasi gabi na eh wala sya halos tulog nung hapon. We’ll definitely go back there, most probably pag-uwi na ni dada Wilson, or pag sinipag akong dumayo dun. Gusto ko din dalhin si Jared sa BHS, di pa namin sya naipapasyal dun maski nung andito si Wilson…again, pag-uwi na lang ni dada, or pag sinipag ako kahit malayo… ๐Ÿ˜€

“Tita Takaw”

February 23, 2011 at 1:29 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Around January, or late December, Jared just suddenly blurted “ta-takaw” repeatedly. Tanong namin habang tumatawa “ano, tita takaw?” at lalo naman nyang inulit-ulit “ta-takaw” oe “tita takaw” hehehe! Since then, everyime he sees his tita around, he calls her “tita takaw”. Lately, kunwari pinapagalitan sya or tinatakot ng tita nya “ano, ano tawag mo sa kin?”, sasagot naman sya ng “tita” sabay smile… pagtalikod ng tita nya at lalayo na, bigla na namang magsasalita ng “tita takaw” sabay tawa. Hahaha!! Even when we just pass by his tita’s room and not really see her, Jared will call “tita takaw!” hahaha malokong bata! ๐Ÿ˜€

Another better-late-than-never(?) post

February 23, 2011 at 1:18 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

It’s been 6 months since Jared turned 1 yr old, and I suddenly remember that I haven’t posted anything here in my blog about his birthday party! The only thing I posted for his 1st bday was my letter for him.

I decided to write and post about his bday party (from the preparation to the party itself), as stated in the title, better late than never…lol! Medyo long read na kwento kasi more on sa preps (na stressful)…

Around Feb last year, I already started to plan for his bday which was 6months away then. By “plan”, I meant “plan on my mind”, as in ideas pa lang wala pang action na ginagawa…hehe.. Nasa isip ko lang nun, as much as possible ayoko sa Jollibee. I have nothing against Jollibee, in fact I love Jollibee! Feeling ko lang masyadong common for a 1st bday (sa 2nd bday ok lang sa akin dun in case magparty kami ulit), maarte lang ako hehe. And ayoko din naman ng unique or bonggang party kasi magastos masyado! Ok lang sa akin sa restaurant or other fastfood na hindi kasing-common ni Jollibee. Around that time, medyo naka-set na isip ko sa Shakey’s kasi alam ko hindi sila nagkakalayo ng price ng Jollibee party package. Theme: Mickey Mouse, kasi favorite sya ni Jared that time. Tapos gusto ko may photobooth. Hanggang dun pa lang ang “party planning” ko kasi feeling ko naman matagal pa.

Around May or June na ata ako nagsearch about the venue and other suppliers. We checked the Quezon Ave branch ng Shakey’s, newest and biggest branch daw. Nung nag-inquire kami ni hubby, there goes my problem…di na sila nag-aallow ng ibang theme kasi may tie-up sila sa Cartoon Network, Ben10 lang (or Powerpuff Girls na syempre di pwede for Jared’s party) ang theme nila…eh di naman kilala ni Jared si Ben10! Few weeks ago lang daw naghigpit about the theme, and alam ko nga based sa research ko sa n@w eh ok lang dati kahit anong theme. Tapos pati ibang suppliers like additional balloon decors, photobooth, eh kelangan yung partner nilang suppliers…eh ayoko (lol!). Ayun, cross-out na Shakey’s, medyo panic mode na ko. Naginquire na kami ng ibang venues: Max’s, Dad’s, KFC, McDo, and Jollibee!! To make the long story a little bit shorter, around July bumagsak din kami sa Jollibee!! hahaha! Nagreserve na kami sa West Ave, before umalis si hubby nung July.

The party was set on Jared’s exact bday, Aug.23, Monday yun pero holiday….dapat! Late July or early August napabalitang posibleng bawiin ni PNoy yung holiday ng Aug23…so panic mode (part 2) ako! Super stressed, 2-3wks before the party I had to change plans! I know malabo ko ng maimove ng weekend (Aug.28 or 29) yung party kasi knowing Jollibee eh fully booked na yun. Aug30 yung next target ko kaso natakot ako baka bawiin din. So I had 2 backup plan dates (Aug.30, or 29), pero kelangan ibang venue na. Sobrang thankful ako ke Agie (officemate and fellow nawie) na kasabayan ko nagpa-party preps (for Oct pa sya), nirecommend nya yung venue na natuklasan nya and yung caterer na nirecommend din sa n@w. Reasonable naman yung rates so nagpencil book na ako for both dates haha! Nagpencil book na din ako ng host, na di ko na dapat problema sa Jollibee. Mas preferred ko yung Aug30 kesa 29 kaya plan C lang yung 29 kasi di na available yung host (Jiggles the Balloon Lady) sa 29, at mas mahirap na maghanap ng host nun kasi weekend puro fully booked. Good thing yung photographer na nibook ko eh available din either Aug30 or 29. Nung inannounce ng hindi nga holiday yung Aug23, kinancel ko na din reservation ko sa Jollibee, narefund ko pa naman yung pera so ok lang ๐Ÿ™‚

August 30 came….after all the stress I experienced during the preparation (as in ako lang kasi nakaalis na si hubby that time), I was super glad because Jared, and the guests enjoyed the party ๐Ÿ™‚ Patok si Balloon Lady sa kids and adults..and nagenjoy din ang kids sa dami ng game prizes and lootbag items (na pinamili ko sa Divi and Toy Kingdom). Happy din ako kasi nasunod yung theme na gusto namin for Jared.. Plus the photobooth was given as a gift by a good friend (and Jared’s ninang). Napataas yung gastos kesa sa original budget na ni-set ko/namin, pero ok lang, it was worth it…esp nung nakita ko after 2wks kung gaano ka-happy si Jared sa pictures ๐Ÿ™‚ Sobrang nakakatuwa na kahit wala syang tulog that time kasi timing sa afternoon nap nya yung party, eh hindi sya sinumpong nun…nung pauwi nga lang tulog agad sya sa kotse hehe!

These are just some of my favorite pics from Warren Camitan:

Wilson and I got married ๐Ÿ™‚

We have this wedsite (wedding site) which I put up around 2006 when we started preparing for our wedding,sinilip ko kanina at buhay pa pala sya kahit di ko na naupdate.

How time flies..3 yrs na pala kaming married..and 3 anniversaries na din kaming di magkasama,laging natatapat na on-board sya during our anniv…sad ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But the past 2yrs were really not that sad for me, because we have Jared. I know it’s harder on his part since he was the one who’s away,at least for me I’m with Jared everyday. Looking forward to next year, when I think he would be here on vacation…really hoping we could finally celebrate our anniversary together.

On our 1st anniv, I was at the office…hubby sent me flowers (thru his office). And my bestfriends (Maruth,Mina,Leslieboy) also gave me flowers. Sweet ng hubby and friends ko ๐Ÿ™‚

 

On our 2nd anniv, I was still on maternity leave (buti na lang CS ako,kung hindi eh nasa office na ko nun). I went to SSS office to apply for a new ID…which reminds me now,after 1yr wala pa din yung new SSS ID ko!

3rd anniv I was working at the office…and had lunch date at Sentro and Red Mango in GB3 w/ Maruth and Les,and Charles (humabol para mag-hi lang). Hubby sent me a cake and flowers at the office TWICE ๐Ÿ™‚

Work..work..work..

Itโ€™s February already and this is my first post for the year! Di ko talaga mapanindigan na maging regular ang pag-blog. Iโ€™ve been really very busy with work, and of course mommy duties. Work is sooo stressful.

Last Nov, I was given a lot of NEW: new role and job function, new team (still within the same department), new boss. My new team: SMS and International Services Engineeringโ€ฆa lot of adjustments on my part. Good thing I am somehow familiar with the SMS Engโ€™g field since I was part of that team around 2005-2006, before I was transferred to Circuit Switch Planning (2006-2010). But IS engโ€™g, I only knew very very little and super basic things on that.

Just last January, one staff had a miscarriage and is now on ML for 2 months. I had to โ€˜absorbโ€™ all the projects under her (IS), while I am still new and learning in that fieldโ€ฆnosebleed! LOL! Sabay-sabay ang mga projects at halos lahat urgent, kumusta naman ang stress level ?! Not to mention there are also a lot of projects on the SMS field. Canโ€™t wait for most of the projects to be finished so I can breathe and relax for a bit. Good luck to me!

At the end of the day, I always look forward to being home and seeing my little one and his super nice smile, while shouting โ€œmama!โ€ with much excitement, upon seeing me arrive home ๐Ÿ™‚

[I wrote this post in the office this morning ๐Ÿ™‚ before my day gets swamped with A LOT of meetings, emails and phone coordination/follow-up]
