She is trying to get our youngest sister to live with them by the end of this year and babysit for her son. It was supposed to be my mom but she has lacking documents and papers needed until now which have not been settled.

This afternoon I have forgotten how heavy my baby has become. My back really ached from carrying him coz he seems restless this afternoon. Not to mention that I'm not really feeling well somehow coz I easily get tired when my period is coming tonight. My baby maybe somehow missed his nanny who is his constant campanion lately. When the nanny was packing her things this afternoon, my baby kept looking at her and at the same time glancing at the door behind him. If I were to interpret that, he might be thinking that she would be going out of that door anytime. His daddy just left that door for work a few minutes ago. He might be thinking oh no she is leaving too. My hubby and I don't wanna be selfish because its the health concern of the nanny is also at stake. But I was thinking why now? As much as I would like to ask her to postpone going home next week, guess her mother's illness wouldn't wait. I get sentimental and particularly sad probably due to PMS. Do you experience that too when you have PMS? It's must be the hormonal changes in my body and I somehow do not like it. Yeah honestly, I really wanna cry but I have to be strong even if I'm tired. I think everyone feels a little helpless sometimes. So I just psyched myself that a mom would take care of her baby no matter what. Anyway this feeling usually goes away after. This is a chance for more bonding time with my baby.
Have a great week everyone!

We were planning to run some errands today coz he will be gone the whole week. For the first time, we will not be together on our monthsary which we still continue to celebrate almost 5 years now. It is same day we entered into our relationship and when we got married but not the same month though. Anyway, we will hopefully have time to have a belated celebration when he comes back next Sunday coz he will have a few days off from work.

Just when I was planning for us to attend mass early that morning before his flight, he has to change his flight to the first flight to Manila. Oh no, that means I have to wake up earlier than planned so that we can send him to the airport. He would miss our monthsary. But I guess this is an opportunity for him that may help somehow in his promotion. I do hope so.
There is going to be a "First Philippine Airlines Photo Contest" and he will be sharing practical tips on photography for those who want to join it. Prizes at stake include cash, gifts and PAL package tours to Beijing, Disneyland, El Nido Palawan and a lot more. Am just wishful thinking that I may get a chance at the amateur category if ever we qualify after the said seminar. There are actually 3 categories: professional, amateur and junior for children up to 14 years old.
I have been excited about attending it since I've never had attended this kind of seminar before. I have a growing interest in photography but I am still so much of an amateur and this seminar would somehow be a big help for me. But my excitement died down last night when my hubby called me from work and told me that he will be leaving for Manila to attend a training in Cavite on July 31 to August 4. Oh no! I don't want to go alone to that photo seminar. I guess I have to wait and see maybe I'll gather up enough courage to go there on August 2 alone.

We usually play in the afternoon especially during summer. Those games with my dad are the most memorable for me. As with the countless shuttle cocks that we shot straight to our roof that just come down from the gutter when it rains. It came to a point that my dad would no longer buy those good shuttle cocks instead those cheap ones with less quality coz he is afraid we would shoot them all to the roof. The last time I played was I think when I would come with my hubby during their practice for a company badminton fest and that was about two years ago.
Yes I miss badminton! Maybe I can start playing again and start getting back in shape after giving birth early this year. : )
I realized that I have been quite busy lately with blogging and surfing the net since we had DSL (digital subscriber's line) connection 3 weeks ago. Since then I have almost always been on my laptop. So about a few days ago, I started to lessen my time surfing and more time bonding with my baby. When my hubby's home too, we try to spend as much time with our baby. I guess the nanny is more happy now since she gets to do other things around the house rather than just looking after our baby.
For me, this stage where my baby is now is crucial since he seems to smile more to his nanny than me. Sometimes I get that look from him that he just stares at me and it takes time to make him smile. I would never want my baby to be estranged to me, looking at me like I'm some stranger in the house. But as I said when I spent more time with him a few days ago, again he smiles immediately to me when I come to him. : )
I missed the chocolate vanilla sundae (left) and the banana boat (right) at Mercorner where my hubby and I used to eat after having a checkup of my baby at his doctor whose clinic is at the Davao Doctor's medical tower just across the street from Mercorner. They still have a lot of ice cream to choose from but these two are my favorite. Their strawberry sundae is also delicious! Is it obvious that I'm a chocolate lover even in ice cream? lol : )

But this evening when I woke up after taking quite a long nap, I went down and saw him lying down, holding both of his feet and suddenly I saw him lick and trying to eat his right toe. Seemingly not content he also licked and ate his left toe. I told the nanny to try to divert him whenever he does that coz I know that it might be unclean since he sometimes walks on the floor barefoot with his daddy holding him. It was quite amusing for us especially when my parents found out about his new "feat" this evening. : )

I am just so glad my sis volunteered to watch my baby for me. I just hope my nanny would come back by 4PM as she promised. But I suspect that she won't come back tonight like what she did on her first day-off. Gosh it's sometimes difficult to become dependent on the nanny.

There were a lot of foreigners with their families and friends eating there today. I even caught my nanny constantly staring at the foreigner sitting beside our table (hmmm she seem to have a crush on the guy). I think they were brought there by the Filipina-looking wife of their friend. The last time we were there I saw my college classmate with his family. I think a lot of people eat there but I also heard that there is this other place called La Toscana in Quirino Avenue that serves pizza that they say taste better. Maybe that will be our next food trip!

What he likes to do and seems to enjoy best is when we let him stand up on his own but we put our arms around him and ready to catch him in case he falls. He would really smile and sometimes giggle. He would really giggle when we say "peek-a-boo" or " esmyuskee" or "bulaga" or "bulage". What we love most about our angel is that he smiles a lot and giggles and laughs with us. We would be really forever thankful to God for this great gift and blessing He gave me and my hubby... our baby, our angel!

It's about Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint), and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) on their way to their fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry was accused of telling a lie with his recent encounter with and the return of the evil Lord Valdemort. To make matters worse Fudge, the Minister of Magic, appointed Professor Dolores Umbridge as the new Defense Against the Dark Arts who refuses to teach them defensive spells. So Harry and the other students had to take matters into their own hands by forming a group which they called "Dumbledore's Army". They would practice secretly in order to prepare in defending themselves from the dark forces. Cho Chang (Katie Leung) who was Harry's love interest in the movie was the one who broke the silence regarding Dumbledore's Army. I was really disappointed by what her character did just when I thought I was going to be proud of her as an Asian in the movie.
The movie was not quite exciting for me that in the middle part of it I got really sleepy. I enjoyed the part when the twins, Fred and George played a trick with fireworks at Prof. Umbridge to disrupt the students' exam. I think I would rate the movie 7 out of 10 :)

It is true that it is so hard to find a good nanny these days. We had tried finding an agency but they couldn’t find another one more suitable for us. Other people suggested that we find one through referral by someone we trust but that didn’t work. We tried before finding through one of the local radio stations and that didn’t work out too. Then I met someone online who shared to me that she found her nanny through a community service program of one of the local radio station here. It was frustrating at first coz I didn’t like those who wanted to apply who texted me and were the one asking questions instead of me asking them of their experience and qualifications. These days it seems that it is the other way around – the nannies are the ones selecting and screening their employers. One funny text I received was a nanny asking if the soap was free? I somehow got confused what she meant by that question. Some keep asking the age of the baby and one kept assuring us that she really wants to work for us but that we have to wait for her to come to us. Until now she has not come to us.
As for now I have to be content with my baby’s nanny who seems kind and playful to my baby. It is important that we have a nanny that we can trust. At least now, my hubby and I can go out more often unlike before when we really have to schedule everything and can’t go out when we need to. What I did during the first few days when I was already quite sure my new nanny can take care of my baby without me… catch up on my sleep coz I was didn’t get to rest and sleep much before we had her since my baby would easily wake up almost every time I was about to rest too.

We are sometimes enslaved by our work. We “work in order to live, instead of live in order to work”. We would sometimes be on call even on a Sunday which is supposed to be a rest day and a family day after working for the past six days of the week. But when work calls for us, we have no choice but to report and earn an extra living for our family.
But it comes to a point when we ask ourselves if it is really worth it? Is it really worth working and risking our health sometimes not being able to eat and rest right because of the demands of our work? Some works are so stressful and the pay sometimes is not worth it. You may be able to buy the things you want other than those you really need right now but then before you reach the retiring age, you might not be able to enjoy what you have worked hard for because of health reasons like suffering a stroke or worse mental or emotional breakdown due to stress and abuse of one’s body because of our work.
But then we have a choice. We can find the kind of work that is less stressful yet still productive and earn as much. Or start our own business where we can manage our own time. However, it can pose more stress on us since the responsibility of the business success lies on our own hands. But then no boss will reprimand or blame you, you reprimand and blame your own self. So it’s really up to you to decide whether to work or not to work.

We surfed the net for more than a hour while finishing up the Durian Larcepuccino and my all time favorite oatmeal fudge bar we ordered. I love to eat it especially when it's still hot and the chocolate on top melts. Yummy and I'm craving for it again. I just can't seem to get enough of it. I just stop eating when I feel dizzy from eating too much sweet and can't take another bite. It was already late when we decided to call it a night. Maybe we will try to use our laptop next time if possible in the open space near the playground at the back just to try if we can still get a signal and surf the net for free. Yeah but what if it suddenly rains? No way I don't wanna go home crying coz my notebook got wet. : )
