My Mommy! A Brag Post

August 14, 2011 § 30 Comments

Ok nagpunta ako sa house ng mom ko sometime last week, matagal na matagal ko na yan planong gawin kaso nakakatamad kasi ang dumi dumi ng bahay kasi walang nakatira, but last week nga nagpascan ako ng pictures na meron ko dito sa amin para madigitize na (at ma blog or ma FB upload) eh natapos na niya so pag return niya ng batch 1 gusto ko padala na ang batch 2 para di sayang sa biyahe so yun ang reason ng why now. But as I was checking the pictures out grabe they are so so precious and I was too excited to show off my pretty mom so nag scan ako ng mga fav ko, di ko namalayan nasa hundreds na pala yung iniscan ko. So here they are.

My Mommy πŸ™‚Β Β  (favorite ako niyan!)

oh diba prettiness ng mudra? itong dresser niya playground ko minsan, nagme-makeup ako sa sarili ko. Yung mga gamit niya sa make up hay until she died yun pa din like yung lalagyan ng loose powder, yung gold gold na lalagyan ng tissue paper and etc.

uuyy ako yung little CUTE girl at ate ko yung isang girl… anybody knows where this is? Makati ba?

nice ng outfit diba? ito yung compound where we lived when I was 1 year old until mga 21 siguro ako (my childhood barkada all came from this compound – may kapitbahay kaming bombay kaya nalaman ko na nagibilad sila ng mga pagkain nila sa araw tsaka may amoy na iba sa bahay -uuy di ako racist ha, bahay namin may amoy din pang Thailand amin amoy curry kami- tapos may neighbor kaming Espanol, hmm asan na si Ramon Machuka, mag google or FB search nga, sila Nancy, Oliver, Ruben, Sherington, Sherwin, Achi Annabelle, Cindy, Kim, Kent and their cousin Dodong am in touch with until now; si Ahia Mike & Steve mahahanap ko kasi pinsan ng kabarkada ko si Ramon unaccounted, sila Jessie yung landloard namin di namin ka barkada kasi rich sila Benz ba naman lahat ng kotse as in madami ha more than 3 na Benz yun aber!) pucha nag FB search ako at nahanao ko ng si Ramon..tignan mo nga naman. Kamusta kaya sister niyang pretty na si Potpot?

if I am correct Rizal Theater ito, Nasa Makati likod ng Rustan’s where 6750 is located now. Tama ba mga oldies?

ito sure ako Makati ito sa Goldcrest yan, tambay ako dito noon habang nagtatao sa fastfood nanay ko at auntie ko

tambay nga kami sa Makati naniniwala na ba kayo?

kung hindi ito ang isa pang proof. maniwala na kayo or dadagdagan ko ito!

I think mahuhulaan ng lahat anong hotel ito. Ilalim nito ay Spirals na ngayon.

if tama ako ito yung labas na part nung hotel sa itaas.

Paco Park right?

ang ganda nung clock na ito, asan na kaya? (Philippine Airport kaya ito?)

ito sure ako dito sa Pilipinas itong airport na ito, may mumu na kaya noon pa?

siya yung pag nag abroad may maleta angΒ  mgamake up niya, and kung tulungan ng pagbuhat ang usapan unang una akong kukuha nito pinaka magaan eh hahaha wais ito. andun pa yata itong make up bag sa bahay eh

itong place na ito vivid sa utak ko, malapit lang ito sa bahay namin sa Roxas Blvd ito (Dewey pa nun) but di ko alam ano siya, please help if anybody know this place. Ang dalas dalas namin dito pero di ko maalala anong place siya.

ganito mga pictures namin for a time noon, promo siguro ng Kodak

o-ha! kaya niyo yan?

naman na waistline yan!

alam ko sa barko ito at natulog kami dito pero ewan ko din bakit or ano ano napuntahan namin? Corregidor ba? Sana may nakaka-alam, share naman. yeah yeah yeah alam ko naman and yes mahal na mahal ko tatay ko pero sana nanay ko ka-carbon copy ko *sigh* wish lang naman

sa Luneta yan, ewan ko din ba anong ginagawa namin dis oras ng gabi doon at ganyan ang outfit! kaloka!

eto na, ito yung kontrabida sa buhay ko. siya yung nanay ng housemate namin ngayon (auntie ko siya bunsong kapatid ng mommy ko, sampu lang naman sila) naku di umuubra lahat ng drama ko dito sa auntie ko, nagrolyo na ako sa Luneta kaiiyak para lang sa lobo kaso iniwan lang nila ako so ayaw ko naman maiwan dun, eh di end ng drama tayo ako at sabay habol, pero nagmamaktol ha di pa ako tapos um-emote eh. pero syempre bati na kami ngayon pero takot pa din ako sa kanya! Talagang what goes around comes around, siya nagasikaso sa amin nung time na busy busyhan na nanay ko, now my turn naman to take care of her kid, then si Unca Maimai I suppose will watch out for Kite & Laya eventually din.

ito help din, ang dalas namin dito, asan ba ito?

ang fresh ng fez noh? kainis di pinasa ang genes sa akin hmpph

maski naka maong ang ganda pa din di siya casual looking pag maganda ka pumorma, that’s my younger brother

ikaw kaya mo icarry and red pantsuit? wala ka sa lolo ko!

di pa uso animal rights nun! hula ko kaya ganito ang pose niya kasi show off niya new nose niya ssshhh secret yun!

Nanay ko pa din ang pinaka vain na tao sa lahat ng nakilala ko wala pang tatalo sa kanya promise! Siya yung wala akong pakialam kung gaano kasakit basta maganda kayang kaya yan, tiis ganda ang motto sa buhay! Dahil sa kanyang vanity naka dalawang trip ako to Japan nung bata pa ako, dun pa siya nagpa enhance eh, wala pa kasi dito.Β  Yung vanity niya? Accepted na namin yung, no issue at all, actually siya may issue kasi di kami ganoon, galit yan sa amin kasi di kami willing uminom ng kung ano anong mapapait na gamot/sabaw pangpaganda ng skin at ano ano pa. Yeah di ko natutuhan yung mag-ayos ayos but kung may natutuhan ako from my mom it is how she is such a dear person to all her friends and I want that for my kids too. Yung love ng friends niya sa kanya dahil sa tulong na nabigay niya or dahil sa asikaso niya or dahil sa luto niya walang papantay. I saw how good her friends treat us dahil lang sa lahat ng nagawa ng mom ko for them and yan goal ko talaga yan to spread good while I am alive so I know people will make sure my kids are ok if something happens to us. And true ha, yung mga tinulungan niya when she got plenty were there and were so loyal when she had none. She got very good friends talaga. Di ko na nga lang alam asan sila ngayon. I do wish I made effort and learned Chinese para nacontinue ko yung communication with them. Oh well.

O nahiya ako 25 pictures lang ito. BUT when all the pictures nascan na nung pinapag scan-an ko (thanks Maan for telling me Jhen does it) di ko ma promise wala itong part 2!

I love you mommy!

ps. hay ang tagal in the making ng blog post na ito… pag scan lang ilang gabi na, tapos ihiwa-hiwalayin yung mga pictures ilang araw din, pag pili ng pictures ay sus… eniwey, but na lang isa lang nanay ko. Abangan ninyo din yung next post ko, ako naman bida doon!

Personalized Gifts

August 12, 2011 § 14 Comments

I so love receiving personalized gift.

(lucky me for having friends who always send such).

Sharing them here, mag ‘ber’ months na at malapit na ang Christmas.

Here are gifts that I gave away: (click on image to go to the website of maker)

The Write Impression gave us this memo pad as gift and the year after we gave it to friends naman. (by The Write Impression | photo by Alpha)

Personalized fans with Logo

I loved having my own name in my fan. Luckily, Didda Abet‘s hometown is Lumban, the land of Barong.Β  He got a lot of relatives there who can help us source and order these fans. So last Christmas 2008, this is what we gave away, then again last year to the some other friends. Now our nephew in Lumban is our go-to guy if there’s order for this. He found the source and can handle orders na if may bulk orders.

Personalized Picture Frame

Gave this away to kids of our friends last 2008. Was actually hoping the makers still make them coz some of my friends got new kids na but they dont anymore daw 😦 boohoo

Memo pad with their handwriting

I had Kite ask her classmates write their name in a paper and then sent it to Noky to scan and place sa top ng memo pad. Perfect for first graders huh? Kite’s gift to her Grade 1 Classmates. (by Wink – Written in Ink)

Gift Cards

Gift Cards – gifts to Kite’s prep classmates πŸ™‚ (by The Write Impression)

Polymer Figures USB

We had this Kite USB made in Bangkok and we were so amazed.

When we saw Clay Creation here we showed her these and she added this as their line na since. For a year almost all our family & friends got this for gifts from us.

These are made na by Clay Creations. (by Clay Creations)

VCOP Officers Year 2008

This is Abet’s gift to his set of officers during his term as President of Vespa Club of the Philippines. Super aliw ako kasi pati yung color ng Vespa nila pinagaya namin. (by Clay Creation)

Maong Apron with Embroidery

My friend Yvonne (her gifts are always personalized) gave me one as gift and 2 years after ito na gift ko din sa friends ko. Love it πŸ™‚

Floor Tote

I met Lynlyn in a bazaar in Rockwell and ordered these floor totes from her last Christmas 2009.Β Β  (ordered from lynlyndy@yahoo.com)

Bag Tags

Kite’s gift to friends & classmate’s when she was in Kinder πŸ™‚ (by Tagz Inc.)

puzzle

Ordered from a wedding supplier but she sold her business na. Gift ni Kite to her classmate sa Grade 2 farewell party.

This one is a marvelous idea kasi cost niya nasa P25 lang per pad. Erron Ocampo did all the illustrations in our 2011 W@W Desktop Calendar, aside from the illustrations on the cities he also made illustrations of Malacanan Palace, DOT Building and the Building where we stay for our message place. We found his illustration of our building too nice to just use once so I had this brilliant idea na gawing note pad and ipa print but syempre bida si Abet Rana his idea is brilliant-er izerox na lang para mas mura at mas madaling gawin. Ayun we printed it sa isang bond paper, per bond paper 4 na memo pad ng kasya, we place each name of the recipient (lahat ng kapit bahay namin na alam namin ang name ginawan namin, meron pang lobby guard, sa akin lang I have Benz Rana, Mr & Mrs Rana, Bennette Rana). Tapos pina-photocopy sa Copylandia 50 sheets per pad then pina cut ko and pina pad na lang sa Kenstar Graphics, printing press where all our printed materials are done. Ito super galing talaga. I love I love! Thanks Erron!

Picture Bag

We used to order A LOT of picture bags sa ibang supplier and they used tarp printing lang, when my sister in law Ellen who’s based in Aus said gusto niya pagawa ng picture bag ulit hinanap ko number ni tarp bag maker kaso di ko na mahanap kasi ilang years ago na yun. Then I remembered seeing this sa wall ni Charisse of Print Diva ayun this bag is a lot nicer kasi the picture is printed sa tela and maganda yung printing niya. Medyo matagal lang ang order so allot 3-4 weeks for order. Happy with this discovery!

Now here are the gifts we received naman na I love:

Notebook na may name na sa labas may name pa sa bawat page from The Write Impression

from Clarice made by Tisha

bag organizer na malaking malaki from Yvonne ulit

toiletry kit na his & hers from Willin/Beabi

kikay bag for Kite & Laya from Yvonne

Will keep adding if I see more. Sige if may maganda kayong gift bigyan niyo ako hahaha!

Laya’s Birthday Party Pictorial

August 11, 2011 § 4 Comments

Our baby Laya turned 1 last March and instead of having a big birthday party we had pocket celebrations and a birthday pictorial.Β  The pocket parties were planned, we started with a family dinner (just people in our house), a family dinner (all of Didda’s side) and another party in Australia where we spent the summer.Β  The pictorial on the other hand wasn’t planned it just fell into place.Β  We had quarterly shoot with The Stork Studio and on her 9th month Sofia suggested an outdoor shoot but we were not ready for it so we had it inside the studio, but on our way home after the 9th month shoot, John said we can do outdoors the next time and just prepare a small table for four and have a small cake so we’d have a birthday themed pictorial since it will be her 12th month. That was my ‘aha’ moment and it turned into one big production number as soon as we got a nod from Teddy Manuel.

Please read more about the party, the suppliers involved and etc at W@W’s Blog or Didda Abet’s Blog or Mommy Manila’s Blog and please watch the video at Threelogy’s Blog shots from shoot of Phoeben Teocson Cinema πŸ™‚

Am here to brag lang that the party is included in Smart Parenting’s Aug 2011 Issue on Party Special

click to enlarge

We didn’t really plan this pictorial to be a full blown party pictorial but it turned that way and we are so happy. So happy that I would even recommend this to all, both those who intend to throw a big party and to those who don’t.

Why I like it?

1. We didnt spend a fortune throwing a party for her.

2. She didnt need to endure a party she wont remember yet we have party pictures for her to enjoy when she grow old.

3. We got a LOT of pretty family pictures. We always miss having family pictures during our parties because we are all busy entertaining our own guests and when we do get some snapshot they are hurried.

4. We got to do dream set up we wouldn’t be able to afford for an actual party.

5. It is so damn fun! We were just busy looking good and having fun, no guest to care for and no program to follow!

Oh I super suggest this to other families! Now if I can just convince Kite to not celebrate her debut haha!

Laya’s Breastfeeding Story

August 2, 2011 § 9 Comments

After sharing my Breastfeeding Story of Kite. Here is Laya’s naman:

We had Laya 11 years after Kite and 11 years din after forming NewlywedsAtWork (N@W) so we were armed with a thriving support group whose members have practically been through everything that could possibly happen, we have all kinds of moms there: breastfeeding moms, formula feeding moms, mixed feeders, those who had a hard time breastfeeding, never attempted breastfeeding, longing to be a mom, wouldn’t want to be a mom ever, being a mom more often than they would want to and what have you. I knew motherhood will be so much more fun this time with so many mommies to run to for any of my most trivial questions. I knew my chances of successfully breastfeeding Laya is high, as I am very good friends with Velvet and Abbie who are experts and studied breastfeeding (their actual title escape me now); am friends too with Jenny who’s blog Chronicles of a Nursing Mom is all about breastfeeding; am friends with a lot of the members of Latch (another breastfeeding group) and there’s so many breastfeeding moms in N@W (that we can even form our own breastfeeding group if needed), need I add more? Ahh I almost forgot, hubby Abet is I think keener than me in making this breastfeeding business a success.

Hubby would bribe me by saying sige breastfeed ka, if you are still breastfeeding mag Cebu na tayo as reward by May. Syempre ako atat sa lakwatcha kaya effective naman his idea. We stayed in a hotel muna for a night to try it out. Successful kami so we went to Tagaytay for a night the week after to see if we can do it again and see how Laya behaves to traveling, aba it was easy! Off we went to Cebu as soon as Laya turned 1 month old πŸ™‚ Hiya ko lang tumigil after Cebu diba? hahaha

Seriously, I think what really clinched it for me was hearing Mimi say I never entertained the thought I wont be able to breastfeed, basta ako mag be-breastfeed, it was so simple, yet so powerful! Whenever I wanted to stop or doubted I would remember how she said it and I remember, of course I am going to continue breastfeeding.

Let me start on the day I gave birth. I was induced March 29 and had Laya that afternoon. Wasn’t able to see Laya again til 12 hours after, by then I was told she was given glucose water already. Am old na, I dont sweat the small stuff anymore. Fine, I just told the nurse nothing anymore after that kasi I will purely breastfeed. I tried to make Laya latch and was so happy she took it in so naturally but she wasn’t hungry and was more interested to sleep. Me too, I wanted to sleep too so I went back to my room na but I requested rooming in of Laya as soon as possible. Well she was roomed afternoon na. And Velvet, my one and only visitor (we didn’t let friends visit kasi we intend to breastfeed so we dont know the schedule when Laya would want to feed, ayaw ko naman mag feed with visitors around; she dont do personalvisits anymore ha, she did it for me lang kasi love niya ako heheh) was able to visit me that day to help make sure I will be off to a good start. She watched and taught me how to latch, taught us to look at the jaw to watch and listen to her swallow, to feed and feed and feed by demand, to not even look at the clock and worry just let baby lead, to put as much of the areola in and make sure it is not just the nipple (it is the nerves in the areola that signals the mind to produce milk) most common mistake is the latching, if you latch right I think there’s 80% success. Velvet also taught us how to massage Laya. We had a smooth breastfeeding routine with Laya at the hospital that night.

As we were about to discharge from the hospital the next day I felt pain in my nape, it felt exactly what they said high blood pressure would feel like, had my BP taken yes it was getting high. I was still discharged but what I was feeling was scary na. Got home and immediately texted Nay Lita Nery (lactating masseuse) to help relax me and at the same time make sure latching is correct. She came and taught me how to feed lying down and I think 2 more positions. My BP remained high and went higher pa. The fact it was Maundy Thursday made things worse for me as I didnt want to go to the hospital on Good Friday all my doctors are away! To make things worst I was also instructed by my OB not to take care of Laya and I am not allowed to breastfeed at night! Huwat? I didnt want to feed formula and I didnt have extra milk. Worst I didnt have a yaya as the yaya who will take care of Laya is our helper whom I haven’t trained yet. And hubby the only other possible person to take care is sniffing and looks like he is going to get sick! Oh that was one super stressful Thursday for me. Lucky I have friends! First Dee came to the rescue she not only gave me milk, she delivered it pa! I had no way of getting the milk at this point (this is also why whenever I donate and I feel that the mom or dad asking for the milk have no way of getting I do personal deliver of the milk as much as I can, aside from not knowing how to handle the milk it is a really a very busy time for new parents). Milk problem solved! Now I needed someone to care for Laya, one whom I can safely leave Laya with, lucky for me Medical City’s nurse station helped me secure one. Sigh! All my immediate problems are solved. The midwife stayed with us that night and cup fed Laya. I wasnt able to sleep a wink. It was hard having somebody else in our bedroom and I missed Laya too. Oh added to the already stressful situation was my dilemna, all the ge-lai food I should eat are also the same food a high blood patient shouldn’t be eating ayayyay! Good think my childhood friend Nancy (my friend since I was 1 year old) took me under her wing, she’d cook a big pot of whatever food I am to eat that day, she’d bring it to me before lunch and then I would reheat the remaining portion for dinner (inaagawan pa ako ni Abet! kasi yummy) she’d carefully choose and ask what are the food allowed sa ge-lai and allowed sa high blood, yes fish nga with lotsa soup! She’d bring it to our place while I am asleep and would teach my helper what to do with it. Am so blessed with so many friends talaga those days! We got over the high blood episode on Easter Sunday (so apt no?), and the midwifes trained Laya’s yaya on how to care for a baby too, she can do everything except she is not comfortable giving Laya a bath. Fair enough, I am also not comfortable entrusting Laya’s bath to her yet.

Breastfeeding Laya was smooth but it was hard. There’s pain, lack of sleep, doubts and a whole lot of other things. Major was the feeling na I cant function, cant do anything kasi a needy child is relying on me and would need me anytime. I remember it was Mother’s Day and I was awake middle of the night so I took that time to greet my mommy friends and hopefully disrupt their sleep. I was at this point wanting to stop breastfeeding na kasi am tired and aching and was really finding a valid reason to stop. Eh yun nga wala akong nahanap na reason so I went on. Every step of the way when the going got tough I would do mass texting, (my regular text victims were Velvet, Abbie, Jenny, Rica, JenCC, Dee, Mimi… either some or all of them hmm forgot who else) always may 2 or 3 na sasagot hehe. I also started going to Abbie’s La Leche Meet and also Breastfriend at Mary the Queen. I started going with so many hang ups, questions and I got my groove there. So my BF Support Group friends saw me turn into a swan. They were with me through all my issues and now am with them egging the newer ones to go on. Now am paying it forward na.

Why am I blogging about my breastfeeding story? 1. It is breastfeeding month kasi. and 2. After reading Confessions of a milk machine and Breastfeeding: It’s a Choice I felt the urge to blog or say my piece. But I also do not like to be perceived as puro breastfeeding na lang. The blog by Frances or better known as TopazMommy, I don’t want to be a lactivist, is so so true. So there.

While I am on a roll let me share na din Why I love breastfeeding.

1. It is so convenient. We just bring a small bag with change of diapers and clothes and a small towel to wipe and we are ready to go anywhere.

2. Because I breastfeed, I had a very easy time taking care of Laya, imagine we went on an overnight stay before she turned 1 month and had her riding an airplane by 6 weeks old, went out of the country for 6 weeks when she turned one.

3. Breastfeeding is the solution to everything! She falls? I feed her and she is ok; She is cranky? I feed her and she is ok; She got hurt? I feed her and she is ok; when she wants something she cant have and is about to throw a fit, I show her my booby and she forgets everything. Breastfeeding her solved EVERYTHING!

4. You know whats amazing, you have booby antennas that tells you your kid is hungry, you actually feel it before she cries that it is feeding time! The things you will realizes are simply so amazing.

5. I watch her feed and the muscle movements from her cheek, tongue and jaws am sure help her so much, while bottle feeder just suck and the milk comes out, the breastfeeder work on it so early and get to use na their muscles.

6. A breastfeeding baby can detect boobies even while asleep. This one still amazes me until now. Sometimes at night I just watch her and she knows which direction to face and when to open her mouth! Amazing talaga.

7. Breastmilk cures everything. I was a cynic too at first, OA naman yan ano magic? Have a cut? Rash? Itch? Put breastmilk and it really does cure! Did it and it worked πŸ™‚

Miss U moments:

People who made it possible for me and helped me with this mommy journey!

Velvet – who would be my rah rah girl talaga throughout the journey. Did I also mention I met up with her for a one on one session on what to do with a newborn aside from about breastfeeding? And when I was looking for a midwife to care for Laya and was not getting anywhere she even offered to yaya Laya sa house namin, papahatid siya kay Atan and stay the night in our place, grabe my heart was filled with gratitude for that text she sent. Super duper thank you Velvet! I owe you!

Dee – she sent me milk when I wasn’t able to breastfeed, if I resorted to formula then and had a taste of convenience I am pretty sure I it would be super hard for me and will constantly be tempted. I also learned from her how to pack and freeze the milk, hers was so flat and so pretty to look at!

Mimi – since she is always no nonsense and frills free I go to her when I am stressed and true enough her ways are the simplest.

Rica – she is like me oldie na and habol baby na lang ito so we can relate with each other, her amazing story of being able to pump 16 oz in one sitting helped motivate me to reach that level.

Nancy, Grace & Morning – oh these are my childhood friends who fed me and made sure I dont stop the ge lai thing. Morning and I had a one on one session too on the meds and drinks to take.

Abbie, Jenny, JenCC, Rica – for always receiving my text and for most of the times replying πŸ™‚

Didda – for making it so clear stop breastfeeding is not an option.

Laya is 16 months old now and we are still breastfeeding. She’s been taking solids since she was 6.5 months old and had her first taste of cow’s milk in Australia. Am now trying to let her get used to the taste of cows milk so she have milk to drink when I go out at night in preparation for the time I go out of the country. She is so loving the chocolate milk from MilkMan, yung fresh milk sometimes she likes sometimes she doesn’t, so what we do we milk the choco milk with milk na lang.

Again, if you are breastfeeding or would like to breastfeed, please know you can drop me a line here or thru my email or thru my facebook or text me if you have it. Would be more than happy to be part of your breastfeeding journey.

Tatts

July 26, 2011 § 3 Comments

The itch for another tatt has been with me for quite some time. Then I got pregnant so had to put it on hold then I was busy with a newborn and now that she is one am once again itching to get one.

Problem is I dont know what yet and I dont know where pa.

Our first is soooo faded na it is so lame already.

Didda's (left shoulder) & Mine (right shoulder)

Who are the recommended tattoo artist? Saan kaya ako pa tattoo? Ano kaya palagay ko? Should I choose the infrared ones?

I like something like Angelina Jolie yung map coordinates of her kids.

Before I wanted to have this sana…

But with Laya now, parang di na pwede ito.

Hmmm any idea?

Mental-Blog?

July 15, 2011 § Leave a comment

Hay been wanting to blog but had 3 blogs that are still in the draft. The all went awry as I write them. They led their own life until I didnt know why I started them in the first place. Anyway, just blabbering away here so I have something to publish πŸ™‚ haha and maybe then I wont be stuck na.

Watched Harry Potter 7 today. Hmm I feel like I am the only one not sad it ended. The length of time from my first discovery of the book till today (showing of the last book) took it’s toll on me. I used to be so knowledgeable about it but when Book 6 came I was kinda just reading it for sentimental reasons and (horrors) I haven’t even finished book 7.Β  Oh well, another chapter ended. Am more excited for Twilight actually πŸ™‚ I sometimes still listen to the audiobook of all the Twilight books… I remember how I got hooked and finished all 4 four in one week (Thanks to My for lending them to me).

Yun lang. Will go back to the 3 drafts and see if any of them will get posted.

In the meantime, you guys might want to join the Milk Mama Diaries – Blog Carnival for July I will try to see if I can submit one.

I am a fan :)

July 7, 2011 § 8 Comments

Hay have you ever read a blog where the ALL of that blogger’s opinion you agree with or even share? Am a follower of a lot of blogs (hmm not that many naman wala pang 8 yung talagang alam ko lahat lahat ng content at nabasa ko buong blog) but I don’t agree with ALL thoughts and opinion but with Topaz girl hay am so agreeing with everything and the more I read her blog the more nagiging fan ako. I started with TopazMommy, hay super relate ako syempre. Some of my opinions na realize ko lang after reading hers (gets niyo? parang magulo basta!), eh natapos ko na yung TopazMommy so I moved to TopazHorizon, I started the present am now on Jan 2011 (you know the feeling of watching telenobela in dvd and you feel part ka na nila kasi you spend so much time watching? kinda ganyan feeling ko kasi I am spending hours reading her blog everynight while feeding Laya, I actually feel like a stalker but am calling myself a fan lang) and am so so so a fan na I just had to express how much I love her blog! One of these days I will go back to her blog and comment (na feel ko sarap ng may comment sa blog so I assume she’d want that too but then my blog is not in her league so baka no big deal na din sa kanya ang comments… but am too busy reading up na di na ako nag cocomment but while reading at the back of my mind I want to stand up and blog and say yes yes what she said is so true and I agree so much! also hirap mag comment via mobile) She is so honest and she writes so nicely. Hay the more I know her thru her blog the more I am so impressed.Β  Hay if only am not in a hurry I would link all the blog entries na I agree with.Β  Basta super fan ako! If my blog gets as famous as hers (am not sure I want that as she just said nawawala yung voice niya as the blog get popular) I hope am I as nice as her… ha! di pa famous blog ko eh di na ako as nice eh. oh well will keep reading and hopefully I channel her niceness.Β  I also know the nice person sa blog is not 100% her syempre she wouldnt show naman her not so nice side but I am realistic and I can smell a nasty person a mile away so I know she is nice. I find her so pretty too!

Am just so happy she is getting such big breaks in her life as she said nga she worked hard for all of this and I so agree and am happy the universe is giving her such a charmed life now. Throwing good vibes and wishes to you Frances!

Yun lang. Fan post lang. Ha ha am actually thinking if I should post this or not. Have several friends who are her friends am dyahe if this gets to her. Di ako ready!

Let’s see if I post this or not. Laya will be the one to decide, if she lets me finish this or if she cries and I stop.

PS.

Read Vince’s writing re Frances & their baby now I wish there’s a TopazDaddy or TopazHubby, that would make so many girls swoon! Am not so into gadget but let’s see if I’d be interested in his blog too.

Where Am I?
