Photo Hunt: Dirty

My heart aches when I saw this photo again..This was taken a couple of years ago when we went backpacking to Cambodia. Kids everywhere in the Cambodian border and Thailand..They were in the streets and asking for food and money. There were too many of this kinds in my home country too but in Cambodian border it is totally different because some of their parents don't even have a left or right leg due to the bombs they step off during the war...I feel so sad for them...So, let us be thankful that we live in a nicer world and that it is not our kids in that photo!

Happy Photo hunting!!!




{The Eventful Weekend}

I am a slacker on this blog. But it's really hard to keep up..Please understand..So, anyway, our weekend was pretty good!

First, I had my monthly prenatal check up last Saturday! I’m glad to share that me and lil pea are doing good! :) Little peanut is healthy and me as well..My OB said that it’s good that I keep eating dairy products because it’s definitely good for me and little pea. We asked again if the gender is still the same and my OB was smiling:) hehe It’s all the same. She said, it’s definite! lol Hubby and me of course was all smiling:) She just advised me to drink tea after eating. After I was advised to had my blood test, we were all done and it was in time for lunch! I was craving for a tuna sandwich! So, I ate 2 orders in a Kiosk near the hospital..lol I never had breakfast only milk so, you can imagine how hungry I was:) After that, we went home. Little boy was asking why we didn’t woke him up earlier because he wanted to see little peanut for the ultrasound. Poor boy. He was so tired so we didn’t wake him up. I just let him see the ultrasound results though..He was all smile..:)

Sunday afternoon, we finally went ahead to check LaLa Port in Toyosu Tokyo! It was opened since last year October so, it’s totally new! And OMGosh! How come we didn’t go there sooner? lol I totally love it there. Shopping, great view in the Tokyo Bay and totally cool dining! We didn’t bring along my camera so, I’ll just have to suck the idea that I don’t have any pictures to share :( But, I love it there! Hubby said we will go back next weekend and will have another dinner in the Thai Resto that we dined in last night :) Oh, I had a Gaopao Minced Pork with Egg! Yummy..;) We also watched a band outside the park and watch the lights in the harbor..I really wish I have photos..But if you’re interested, you can check the pics here! :) Over all, we had an eventful weekend! Love it when it’s like that!

{ 26 Weeks and counting..}

How am I? I’m in my 3rd trimester of my pregnancy! I’m totally feeling big and I gained a great big deal of weight..lol But it’s ok:) I’m feeling alright though and little pea is alright and that’s what all that matters now. And glad that little peanut is doing great. I can picture out the heartbeat. I could almost hear little peanut smiling:) hehe Obviously we can’t wait for the big day! My next check up will be after 3 weeks time. I just hope that hubby will be back during that time from Malaysia or wherever he might be starting next week…

How your baby’s growing: Your baby now weighs a little under 2 pounds and measures about 14 inches, from head to heel. The nerve pathways in her ears are developing, which means her response to sounds is growing more consistent. Her lungs are developing now, too, as she continues to take small breaths of amniotic fluid — good practice for when she’s born and takes that first breath of air. If you’re having a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend into his scrotum — a trip that will take about two to three days.

Have a great new week and be safe wherever you are!




Photo Hunt: Happy

One of the happiness that completes me and hubby:) Well, aside from the other one on the way! Check my other blog here! He was so happy because his Daddy bought him a new toy! He got a Wii and his Daddy got a new 21" PC flat screen for computer games and he was playing with the carton while we were busy checking out the stuff! Taken last December;)

Have a great Weekend! Happy Hunting!



The Weeked That Was...

{Weekend Updates}

Our weekend wasn’t that jam pack! Saturday afternoon, we were supposed to be going to La la Port but we decided to just postponed it. I thought this is the La la port that is near in Yokohama but hubby said this isn’t..Hmmm..not sure. It’s a new hopping place with great shopping and great dining! We’ll just do it next weekend then :) So we went again in Costco and bought some stuff. I like going to Costco because the fact that they have lesser prices but I just don’t like the warehouse smell..Must be with me being preggo, I suppose.

Sunday came like a whirlwind! Hubby and I had a small dinner out. We promised to keep Sunday afternoon for both of us. So that we can talk and then have a dinner just the two of us:) Wanted to bring along little boy but he prefers to be left home and play games! Which was good..We bought school stuff for him. I’m happy that he liked the Cars theme. From his lunch box to his apron..it’s all the Car’s! :) He said, it’s really for boys! Good then..We finished the night with a small pint of Baskin and Robbins ice cream…love it! ;)

{I’m 25 Weeks!}

I’m totally nearing. And every time I lay down in bed, I keep talking to little peanut that hopefully he/she will go out with not much pain like my little boy:) But, I really think I am ready to pop this lil pea out! Although I still a few months..

How Am I feeling? The back pains are gone. Which is good news. I will be back to my OB this Saturday. And hopefully everything will be fine just the way it is. My hair is growing too fast too. Hubby said he likes it even better and its very shiny even though I haven’t had any hair salon in months. :) Little Peanut likes to kick under my left rib as usual. I’m proud to say that I love milk and water the best this days…I eat more dairy products and then fruits before breakfast or lunch time:)

How your baby’s growing: Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. His weight — a pound and a half — doesn’t sound like much, but he’s beginning to exchange his long, lean look for some baby fat. As he does, his wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and he’ll start to look more and more like a newborn. His hair is probably recognizable now (in color and texture), although both may change after he’s born.

Thanks for stopping by:)

Have a wonderful photo hunting everyone! And enjoy the weekend! :)



24 Weeks..

I can’t believe that I’ll be done with my 2nd trimester soon! Time flies that fast this days and we are so looking forward for that special day. We have a lot of thinking with hubby about the hospital I’m going to deliver little peanut because it’s totally a bit far from our place. Not that far far though, it’s around 30 minutes drive but hubby says it’s too far! lol Because the last time I had my little boy it was only 10 minutes walk from our place..He said we might just rent another apartment for a month near to the hospital..He is so like that. Taking care of everything and I didn’t even bother the 30 minutes drive thing..but I’m also considering because it’s my second baby and it might be different to the first one where I had a 30 hrs of agony ;) Let’s see..

How am I feeling? I am doing great. I just need to eat more dairy products,cereals, less carbo though, less salty foods, more vegetables and fruits! I had a little problem with my bowel movement. Sucks! I know. But I read here about the constipation problem when you’re preggy. I just have to go out more and continue my exercise routine. Other than that, little peanut is a kicking pea to the max:) He loves to kick just under my left ribs! lol We are both great and I’ll be having my next check-up by 25th. ;)

And oh, you want to know the gender right? Wait ’til I’ll have the contest ready for that thing..It will be a bit later but it’s worth checking for! I won’t tell if it’s a HE or a SHE, you have to guess! ;)

How your baby’s growing:
Your baby’s growing steadily, gaining about a quarter of a pound since last week, when she was just over a pound. Since she’s almost a foot long, that makes a pretty lean figure, but her body is filling out proportionally and she’ll soon put on more baby fat. Your baby’s skin is thin, translucent, and wrinkled, her brain is growing rapidly, and her taste buds are developing. Her lungs are developing “branches” of the respiratory “tree” and cells that produce surfactant, a substance that helps the air sacs inflate easily.

Now, I’m off here! Have a great day/evening everyone!

23 Weeks...

I have gained a lot already. My OB told me to not eat a lot! Ayayay! :)

How am I feeling? I am definitely alright. Although, I need to check to my OB because I just had a leg sprain days ago. Other say it might be that I am high blood. I just had a check up last week but my blood pressure is alright. I just hope it was nothing. And I am getting heavier. My OB advised me to eat more vegetables, eat more dairy products and try not to indulge with salty foods. I already know the gender of little pea{insert grin here,lol} but I’m still not telling! haha It’ll be a secret for now:) I’ll let you know when I’m ready! Actually, I’m all good and little peanut is getting heavier too. Kicks a lot and sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night because of lil pea’s kicking:) So Cute! I’ll go back to my OB in a week and I’ll deliver my lil peanut in this International Catholic Hospital. At least my OB is in there and then Sister Barbara an American missionary, who is very helpful to us:) She’s a blessing! We don’t speak Japanese very fluently and I’m glad she’s there! The hospital is like a hotel..hehe and so much better than the last I had my little Albert:) Too expensive but I love it there..feels like home ;)

How your baby’s growing:
Your baby is more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound. His skin is red and wrinkled. Blood vessels in his lungs are developing to prepare him for breathing. He can swallow, but he normally won’t pass his first stool (called meconium) until after birth. Loud noises heard often in utero — such as your dog barking or the roar of a vacuum cleaner — probably won’t faze your baby when he hears them outside the womb.

Have a great new week everyone! Be Safe! :)




* I woke up early because we went to see my Aunt and Uncle in the airport. Turns out we only had like 15 minutes to talk!

* When we arrived home from the airport, I had a very sick stomach. I keep asking myself what did I ate last night! Sure is, I ate pizza! My stomach this days isn’t very good with digesting..tsk..tsk

* We’re going to watch TRANSFORMERS again! lol It’s the opening day here in Tokyo. Hubby wasn’t able to watch it yet. But he wants us to go with him..I love that movie too:)

* Dinner in Thai Foods but changeable since I don’t think my stomach needs more oily and spicy foods today.

* Call my Mom back home. I still have to tell her about my recent visit to my OB;) I’m sure you want to know too! lol

* Take pictures this afternoon..something to freshen’ up my mind..

* And enjoy the weekend! ;)

Have a great Weekend everyone!



What your Hand Says About You

What Your Hands Say About You

You are logical, analytical, and rational. You have good verbal skills.

Idealistic and dreamy, you tend toward the impractical. You have a knack for getting yourself in sticky situations.

Consistent and reliable, you like to count on structure and routine in your life.

Your emotions tend to be well though out. You're willing to wait out a bad situation, and you're never too quick to act.



My first post in August here!And it means it will be TGIF tomorrow.
A Date with hubby in Saturday is wonderful:)
He said we will watch Transformers Saturday night. Already saw it but he haven’t yet. Japan is late with Hollywood Movies.
We can go somewhere by Sunday after hearing a Mass.
Bro asked if we can go back to Tokyo Dome because he wants to ride the roller coaster! Sounds Fun!
I want to eat something spicy but my OB said it won’t do good for me.
I want me some dried fish..lol but not good for me either. Ugh
Getting ready for Little Peanuts room. Now, I know what color to put. ;)
We might swing by Costco Saturday Morning.
And oh..Bro will cook dinner again tonight! The food? It will be Bestek Tagalog and ginisang monggo! YUM

Now, I’ll be off here! :)
