How to Make Woman Happy!

I'm just LOL'ing with this one! haha

A study conducted by UCLA's Department of Psychiatry has revealed that the kind of face a woman finds attractive on a man can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle.

For example: If she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features.

However, if she is menstruating, or menopausal, she tends to be more attracted to a man with scissors lodged in his temple and a bat jammed up his ass while he is on fire.
Further studies are expected.

It's not difficult to make a woman happy.
A man only needs to be:

a friend
a companion
a lover
a brother
a father
a master
a chef
an electrician
a carpenter
a plumber
a mechanic
a decorator
a stylist
a sexologist
a gynecologist
a psychologist
a pest exterminator
a psychiatrist
a healer
a good listener
an organizer
a good father

very clean


give her compliments regularly
love shopping
be honest
be very rich
not stress her out
not look at other girls


give her lots of attention, but expect little yourself
give her lots of time, especially time for herself
give her lots of space, never worrying about where she goes


Never to forget:
* birthdays
* anniversaries
* arrangements she makes


Show up naked
Bring food & drinks
Hand over the remote



22 weeks,already?

Yep, 22 weeks and counting! And my belly is getting heavier:) Here’s what the Babycenter says..

How your baby’s growing:
Your baby now looks like a miniature newborn, checking in at 10.9 inches and almost 1 pound. Her skin will continue to appear wrinkled until she gains enough weight to fill it out, and the fine hair (lanugo) that covers her head and body is now visible. Her lips are becoming more distinct, and the first signs of teeth are appearing as buds beneath her gum line. Her eyes are developed, though the iris (the colored part of the eye) still lacks pigment. Eyelids and eyebrows are in place, and her pancreas, essential for hormone production, is developing steadily.

How your life’s changing:

You may start to notice stretch marks on your skin as your abdomen expands to accommodate your growing baby. Some pregnant women never get stretch marks, but at least half do. These small streaks of differently textured skin can range from pink to dark brown (depending on your skin color), and they become more apparent as pregnancy progresses. They can appear not only on your tummy, but also on your buttocks, thighs, hips, and breasts. Lotions won’t prevent or eliminate them, but they help with any itching. Also, you may no longer be an “innie” — your navel is flat and may soon pop out. It will revert to its usual shape after birth.

Another interesting skin quirk you may notice during pregnancy is something called vascular spiders. These are little areas of raised, reddish skin, with tiny branches. Commonly found on the face, neck, upper chest, and arms, they’re caused by the higher levels of estrogen in pregnancy, and they usually disappear after delivery.

I’ll be out the whole today but be back with great updates!




I got an email from SBB admin that they want one of my layout titled {Me at 21 Weeks} to be published in SBB Ezine Hot Bytes for August! How awesome that news is!

Movies and Such..

I saw the other 5 Harry Potter movies and then we got to watched Harry Potter the last sequel 2 weeks ago! I say it was awesome! They have grown up so fast and then Hermione looks beautiful in there! I hated Dolores Umbridge in there as well! lol I'd say one of the great movie this summer! Another movie that I have been waiting to watch is this Ratatouille Movie! A story about a rat who wants to a famous chef in Paris town! :) I've seen the thriller and wants to see it in the big screen with my little boy! It will be shown here in Japan this Saturday. I thought it was yesterday! My bad:)

Other thing is that I finally cave in and decided that I wanted to watched HEREOS! OMG! Why did I never see that before? lol It's a great tv series too! I just finished watching the Season 1 and patiently waiting for the Season 2 in September! Ask who makes the story fun? It's definitely Hiro-san! haha :)

Have a great day!

Have a blessed day you all!



Im in my 21 Weeks..

I am in my 21 weeks..time sure flies soo fast…

How your baby’s growing:

Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long. His eyebrows and eyelids are fully developed. And you can certainly feel him move. He’s oblivious to your schedule, though, so don’t be surprised if he starts working out just when you’re settling down for the night. If you’re having a girl, her vagina is formed now, though it will continue to develop until birth.

Note: Every baby develops a little differently — even in the womb. Our information is designed to give you a general idea of your baby’s development.

How your life’s changing:

You’re probably feeling pretty comfortable these days. You’re not too big yet, and the usual aches and pains associated with early pregnancy are, for the most part, gone. Relax and enjoy it while you can — the third trimester will bring some mild discomfort from carrying a baby who is nearly full-term.

That’s not to say you don’t have some minor glitches to deal with now. Increased oil production may have given you a mild case of acne, for example. If that’s the case, be diligent about washing well with a gentle soap and water twice a day, but don’t take any oral acne medications — or even use any topical acne products — without checking with your practitioner first.

You’re also prone to varicose veins now (especially if your mom has them). That’s because pregnancy puts added pressure on the veins in your legs. (Your blood volume is increased and your uterus puts pressure on the inferior vena cava, the large vein that returns blood from the lower half of your body to your heart.) As if that’s not enough, an increase in the hormone progesterone causes the walls of your blood vessels to relax, so as your baby and uterus grow, the veins can become more and more prominent. Varicose veins tend to worsen with each pregnancy, and while they’re most likely to show up in your legs, they can also appear on your vulva.

If your legs ache, put maternity support hose on first thing in the morning. Increasing your circulation with a brisk walk each day can also help, as can elevating your legs and sleeping on your left side with your feet propped up with a pillow.

Have a Blessed Day! Until Next Time!

The Kuya to be...

I am a very proud Mommy of this Kuya to be:) This is his latest photo, all grown up and don’t want to be called a baby anymore..sigh..At 5 yrs old!

He got a lot of little quirks already and even reason out if I asked him anything. He really shows that he can be trusted. And I always tells him that I trust him and love him dearly. He eats properly although there are still times that I have to watch him eat his food. Favorite food would be fried chicken and roast beef. Loves apple, orange, strawberry, watermelon, and pineapple. He always tells me he loves me, Daddy and our little pea. And of course I asked him who is his fave hero, he said it’s his Dad and Spiderman! lol He said that I am Daddy’s girlfriend and to him as well..He is so cute! He has this word” funny” that he always tells me “Mommy’s funny!” whenever I tell little jokes! He loves to wear his color green and blue brief. haha He doesn’t like the Shrek 3 movie because he said its corny! See? He knows! lol He loves Transformer toys this days because we watched that movie already. He can watch any kind of cartoons and Barney’s all day and still knows how to multitask and even study school stuff! Ask why? He watch TV, he plays PSP too and then he has this fat crayons in his side and also draws little people. He write his name properly and can I just brag that he got a very nice penmanship? Hey! this is my kiddo but besides that he really is smart! He knows what multi-tasking is! I told myself he is a bright young boy! He got it from his Dad not me definitely! haha And then he loves to go to park and play with other kids but can be very shy if he thinks its stranger..

Will add more later with this one:) I’m doing this because I’m sure I can’t do this when my little pea is around..At exactly 4 months another angel will be here! Can’t wait ;)




Our Weekend..

This might be my longest recap for the weekend! Since I am back here I will start to blog our weekend and other small stuff. I missed doing this. I wanted to do it while we had our vacation but I am almost out everyday. And I just wanted to savor the vacation…Although, I was a blogging machine a few weeks ago before we headed off here. But most of what I wrote are for my tasks and opps for the paid by blogging stuff! So first off, I am glad to say that our general cleaning in the whole apartment was done Saturday morning! It was too tiring since the last part of that one was to cleaned up our masters bedroom. It’s not that big though but my cabinet is! lol Piles of bags, shoes and clothes that some of them I may not able to use for this coming 5 months. So, I have to change almost everything in my wardrobe! hehe And move the others to the other cabinet…Sad thing is I have to say goodbye in the meantime of my wedge sandals..lol

Saturday afternoon, we had lunch in Italian Tomato’s! I was craving for their Italian spaghetti bolognese with creamy sauce so I ordered that one. Bro, hubby and Little boy got each a pc of chili dog. Yep, little boy loves their chili dog! After that one we went to Olinas and ordered a 3 scoops each of Baskin and Robbins Ice Cream! OMG! I wan’t one now! lol It’s so yummy! Well, Baskin&Robbins is my fave ice cream parlor! And then strolling a bit..it was too tiring but we managed to check some cribs for my little pea in Babies R Us store. I saw one that I really like. It’s around $300 to $400 but I really love it. And other baby stuff that I wanted if its a girl! I bought a pair of preggy sleeping pj’s and a few shirts for little boy. Bought a couple of shirts for my bro too in GAP! They we’re having a sale so grabbed the chance..A few hours later we went to Yodobashi Electronic Shop and look for a phone for my bro. He wanted the Nokia N73..It’s kinda cool so, we might get it this week for him! And then around 7pm, we went home..It was tiring but we have to show my bro around a bit to familiarize the neighborhood.

{A Date with Hubby}
It’s 2 months that we haven’t had any date due to my vacation so he asked Saturday night if I wanted to go out with him. He is so sweet..So, we went out by Sunday afternoon around 5pm just in time for a dinner out. We dine in this cute little resto that they have one of the best roast beef. Hubby said he want to go there again! After dinner, we bought 2 movie tickets! I didn’t watched the Pirates of the Caribbean-Worlds End last May because we both promised to watch it together here. And then we did! The movie starts at 8:30pm and ended around11:45pm. I got tired already. But it’s nice to see my ever Johnny Depp! lol

I had a great time with my hubby. We get to talk and not minding our little boy because he was left with his Tito. I miss my hubby so badly..hehe And yep, I am 19 weeks preggy :)

{Little Boy’s Update}
I wasn’t able to update you all about my little boy. So, I will talk a bit about him. He is doing good. He always tells us that he is no longer a baby and he doesn’t want me to call him a baby anymore but a “Kuya”(big brother). He sleeps at his own bed now. Yep, before he sleeps at his own bed but he sleeps at our bed first and then we will transfer him when he gets to sleep. I read him stories still but he always asks me about our little peanut. He is so sweet that he always tells me how much he loves me, Daddy and our little pea. He even told me that he will take care of little pea. We have this little conversation yesterday when we had breakfast.

Me: Can I leave little pea to you when I go to grocery shopping?
LB: Sure, Mom!
Me: What if you are going to school and no one will take care of little pea?
What are you going to do?
LB: Well, she is very small right? I will carry her to school. I can’t leave her alone in the house, can I? So, I’ll bring her with me. (He wants to have a little sister too. He already know the name and can say it beautifully and clearly!)

Be still my heart! My heart is pounding at that moment! He is such a sweet Kuya and he always talks to my tummy everyday and kiss ‘em every now and then.. Proud Mommy moment again ;)

{Digital Scrapping}
I can’t believe I actually scrapped a page last Saturday! I just thought that to be able to get back my scrapping groove is to try to open scrap again and then I’ll see from there! And then voila! I got this page done..I am happy with the result and glad I scrapped again after 2 months!

Click here for the credits!

Thanks for peeking!




Little Peanut is 19 weeks and counting!

OMG! I can’t believe I am almost halfway of my little pea’s pregnancy! Time sure flies so fast and I just can’t wait to see his/her face! We are going to have an ultrasound anytime this week and hopefully it will be a baby girl! But if it’s a boy, we are very happy of course as well! As long as it’ll be a healthy peanut! hehe And we already have a name if it’s a girl and we are still looking for a name if its a boy!

How your baby’s growing:
Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces, and he measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the length of a small zucchini. His arms and legs are in the right proportions to each other and the rest of his body now. His kidneys continue to make urine, and the hair on his scalp is sprouting. This is a crucial time for sensory development: Your baby’s brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. If your baby is a girl, she has an astonishing 6 million eggs in her ovaries. They’ll dwindle to fewer than two million by the time she’s born.

Note: Every baby develops a little differently — even in the womb. Our information is designed to give you a general idea of your baby’s development.

How your life’s changing:
You’re just a week shy of the halfway mark. You may notice some achiness in your lower abdomen (perhaps extending to your groin) or even an occasional quick, sharp, stabbing pain on one or both sides, especially when you change position or at the end of an active day. This is round ligament pain, and it’s caused by the stretching of the muscles and ligaments that support your growing uterus. It’s nothing to be alarmed about, but if the pain is persistent and continues even when you’re resting, or is severe or accompanied by cramping, call your practitioner.

You may also have noticed some skin changes lately. Are the palms of your hands red? Nothing to worry about — it’s from increased estrogen. Patches of darkened skin are also common during pregnancy. When they show up around your upper lip, upper cheeks and forehead, they’re called chloasma, or the “mask of pregnancy.” You may see these splotches on your arms or other areas that have been exposed to the sun. Your nipples, freckles, scars, underarms, inner thighs, and vulva may also darken during pregnancy. That darkened line running from your belly button to your pubic bone is called the linea nigra, or “dark line.” All of this darkening is caused by a temporary increase in melanin, the substance that colors your hair, skin, and eyes. For most women, these darkened spots will fade shortly after delivery. In the meantime, protect yourself from the sun, which intensifies the pigment changes. Cover up, wear a brimmed hat, and use sunscreen when you’re outdoors. And if you’re self-conscious about your “mask,” a little concealing makeup can work wonders.




Looking back

..of my old digital layouts this is my 2 favorites..I am hoping to make one later today but hubby and I will go out for a date! :)

I'll post new ones as soon as I can whip something new!



For my In-Laws

This is for my in-laws. Their birthday will be in about 2 weeks time and thought of printing this out together with our gift:) They both celebrate their birthdays together! And since my hubby is an only child. They will spend it together again alone and without us :( I am a little sad but I’m sure they can understand that we are here because this is where we live for now!

Happy Birthday’s Dad Cesar and Mom Linds!

One more thing, I'll probably be updating this blog always as my other blog from WP got closed! Sucker! :(




Hello Peeps!

We got back here in Tokyo a few days ago! There are still so much to do here in the house but I am glad to be back home! My hubby keep telling me how he missed me and my little boy:) And then we are doing a general cleaning in the house! So much to do and yet so little time! ughhh..

Anyway, I am trying to get back my scrapping groove. I’d love to scrap more this days as there are tons of photos that I can actually use but haven’t able to scrap for 2 months is impossible to whip up a layout just like before! But hopefully so..I still love scrapping!

I’ll post photos later..Have a great weekend!




Saturday Shopping Galore

We went out today. First stop was to get all our tickets and then it took us an hour since there was a little problem with the agency computer but they fixed it right away. I still have to get the travel tax of little boy. I hope to finish it by Monday. And then it was raining. I am glad that our driver was here even though its his day off. And then next stop was a check up of Little Boy! He’s scheduled to have an immunization. He got 2 injections. It’s for the flu and the other one was for some boosters which is 5 in 1 injection. I paid around 6k pesos. Little boy didn’t cry or anything. He is so brave that I wanted to hug him but he said that he is no longer a baby and he’s a big brother now. Proud Mommy moment again )

Right after those things, we went malling. But first, we had a lunch in Pancake House. I ordered a pan chicken in 2 pieces. Bro got an Adobo Sulipan and then little boy got a spaghetti. After eating, I bought my preggo dresses. I manage to SPLURGE! ) I can’t imagine how cheap they are. I’ll be posting pics as soon as I get to wear them when I’m back in Tokyo. ) Most of them are not necessarily for preggos..hehe Preggo dresses are so dull. Most of them have color blue and I don’t like blue color now a days! So, I went ahead on buying the what’s in this days! lol Just to give you a hint. I love color red very much ;) And then I bought 2 ballerina shoes! OMG! I have to let you see them..They’re too cute:) I promise to post photos tomorrow! Other stuffs like, some make ups. I was looking for my Shu Uemura Foundation and a Chanel nail paint color that I saw in a mag but couldn’t find any here so I will just get it in Tokyo. I purchased a new Gucci shades too! hehe Yep, I have to. I am a sucker of shades and although I can’t use ‘em when I’m back there because I can’t imagine a preggo with a big nose wears a shades! haha But I love it! And then I have a lot of things that I bought. Little boy had some shirts too but there’s not much of choices here so I’ll buy more when I get back. And I bought a few shirts of my bro too. Bought a pants for him as well.

After the shopping, we went home and I forgot to have a dinner:) Actually, I still have to get my dinner ) So, until next update!
