Today is Cj’s birthday! So let’s greet him a Happy happy Birthday! It’s his 18th bday today…charaught! Wish nya lang daw! But I couldn’t be any happier because aside from fact that we are celebrating his birthday, today we are also celebrating a new life that God has given to my family.

KMS Cooks: Ginataang Alimasag

IMG_2687

I’m allergic to seafood particularly to shrimp and crab (Booo! IKR?!) but this allergy only occurs when the seafood isn’t fresh. That’s one of the reason why I love eating at Dampa because aside from their delish cuisine, I’m 100% sure that their seafood is fresh kasi alive na alive pa sila when you buy it, diba? Now this recipe that I am gonna share with you guys is one of my favorite dish.

Getting Rid of UTI

I’m pretty sure you’ve all noticed that I seldom write a blog post these past few days and it’s because lately I’m not feeling well. Last week I’ve been diagnosed with UTI again. I used the word “again” because obviously it’s not the first time I had this. The last time I had it was when I was pregnant with Cyler and back in my college days.

Cyler’s Potty Train Success!

Teaching your son how to use the potty will require time, effort and patience on your part, it also needs a lot of motivation and cooperation from your son. For me the key to potty training success is when your child is showing interest and willingness to do so. Not all kids are ready for this change, it took us months before Cyler get the hang of it. I remember the first time when I introduced Cyler to potty training he was just two years old then and it really scared him to death. He was so shocked and just cried, of course it wasn’t successful. To be very honest, it wasn’t an easy (for both me and Cyler) transition but  of course I don’t want to pressure Cyler on this part so I waited until he’s ready.

Gwyneth’s Hello Kitty Themed Birthday Party

Jollibee Bday

Last month, we attended a birthday party with Hello Kitty themed at Jollibee, Macapagal. I’m a big fan of this cartoon character when I was a small kid so this party definitely brought out the kid in me. It was a simple yet fun-filled birthday party and we did enjoy it most especially Cyler. I haven’t attended a Hello Kitty themed party in such a long time so medyo na-excite ako this time.

First Movie Date with Cyler!

20140624-000326-206239.jpg

Ecstatic is an understatement when we had our first movie date with my son, Cyler. Finally, we had movie date together! YAY! Cj and I are actually more excited for Cyler. We watched How To Train Your Dragon 2 at Robinsons, Magnolia a couple of weeks ago and I’d say this movie didn’t disappoint. The scenes are perfect for Cyler because most of it are kid-friendly. Well except the part when Hiccup’s Dad died and they’re all sad and crying… because Cyler got emotional too. He got carried away with the scene that he also cried when he saw the characters crying. But it wasn’t the tantrums-level-cry so it was totally fine. He did know that we were about to watch movie but he didn’t know that we will watch it in the big screen. So he was completely amazed when he saw the big screen.  I was afraid that he might freak-out once we enter the movie house but thank goodness it didn’t happen. I can see on his eyes how mesmerized he was and the good thing was he watched attentively. So two thumbs-up for my brave little boy! I’ll consider that as a milestone. 🙂

What Are You Most Grateful For?

IMG_2002

After reading Ate Maggie and Maqui‘s recent blog post I got really inspired with their stories so I decided to share mine today. I’ve felt down and been very sickly lately but suddenly I realized that I had so many things to be grateful for in life. Sometimes it’s easy to feel bad because you’re going through a tough time in life. No matter how bad your situation may seem remember that there are million things to be grateful in life. Today, I realized that I am beyond blessed for having my family. God had given me a very kind-hearted, sweet, and loving son and husband who are always there for me no matter what. They are indeed my real source of happiness, strength, and joy.

Losing My Blogging Mojo

Hello! Hello! I miss blogging a lot and I feel so outdated too. So sorry for being MIA for the past days for I’ve been very busy with my family (most especially with my uber demanding toddler!), work, and with a lot of things! I hardly blog too when I’m at home because Cyler wants my entire attention all the time plus our room is always a big mess so I don’t really know how to include blogging in my little time. Most of the time I found myself snoozing right after playing with my toddler because while we play I also do some cleaning on the side. Talk about multi-tasking ‘eh! Sorry but I’m really bad at time management. Uggh! But fret no more because I’m gonna write a quick post tonight before I go home. Hopefully this post will bring back my blogging mojo coz I have a bunch of pending stories and advertorial post too! So please please bare with me, okay?!

Did you ever experience or feel like you want to do something (in my case I want to blog) but you don’t really know how to fit it in your sched?!

Post Father’s Day Message!

IMG_2234

Sobrang maalaga at talaga namang very hands-on na tatay si Cj sa anak namin na si Cyler kaya naman araw-araw kong pinapa-salamat sa Diyos na binigyan nya si Cyler ng matino at maayos na Ama (big word!LOL!). Na-realize ko ang hirap palang mag straight tagalog. LOL! Anyway, o sya sige papanindigan ko nato alang-ala sa post na itech pero di na straight tagalog. HAHAHA! Sa edad na pitong taong gulang naghiwalay ang mga magulang ko kinuha kami ng tatay ko pero after 3 years nag decide kami na bumalik sa nanay ko kasi pakiramdam namin magkakapatid pinapabayaan lang kami ng tatay namin. Mahirap, masaklap, at malungkot lumaki ng walang Ama pero kinaya ko at ng mga kapatid ko. Minsan nga nagtataka ako sa mga taong may broken-family na napapariwara kasi di ko ma-gets kung bakit ginagawa nilang dahilan ang pagkakaron ng broken family. Anyway, ika nga nila life is a matter of choice,  nasa sayo kung gusto mong mapabuti o mapasama ang buhay mo. Sobrang pasalamat ko talaga sa Diyos na kahit ganun ngyare sa pamilya ko napalaki ako (ay ndi pala ako lumaki, tumanda lang. LOL!) ng Lola at Tita ko ng maayos. At araw-araw na tatanawin kong utang na loob sa Diyos na   nakatagpo ako ng lalakeng magtataguyod sa pamilya ko at yun ay si…itago nalang natin sya sa pangalang, Carlos John Ricafort. Harharhar!

A Trip at Mckinley Hill Clubhouse

IMG_2283

Last week, we attended a Christening at Mckinley Hill Clubhouse, Taguig City. I was kinda (I mean totally!) impressed with their clubhouse interior. The venue is indeed perfect for any kind of gathering plus it’s centralized too so that’s a two thumbs-up for me. And I also love the fact that they have swimming pool and outdoor playground too for the kiddos and feeling kiddo (like me!). 🙂 Continue reading

IMG_1919

Hello! Hello! Finally, here’s the 2nd part of Cyler’s birthday celebration at Nurture Wellness Village, Tagaytay. If you haven’t read the first part you can read it here. I’ve decided to take a break from blogging that’s why I put this blog on hiatus. I just need to focus more on my family and other important things in life but I never neglected this blog. But if you’re following me on instagram (it’s kikay_mommy_sha btw)  I’m pretty sure you know what keep me busy. Anyway, going back to our topic we just had an overnight stay at Nurture but every seconds of our stay here was super worth it (and super nakakabitin!). So what did we do on our 2nd day?!

Cyler’s 3rd Birthday Celebration at Nurture Wellness Village

IMG_1951

My family had the most relaxing, incredible, and amazing vacation at Nurture Wellness Village, Tagaytay last week. If I could only stop the clock and turn back time we will definitely stay there a little longer. But time didn’t allow us to do so, nevertheless we enjoyed every bit of our time together. I’m still grateful and happy that we were able to enjoy this short but meaningful family-trip. This trip is actually part of Cyler’s birthday celebration but this time we opted to have some family time. Just the three of us– Cj, Cyler, and me. And I must say we did have the most amazing time together. And I thank God for allowing us to enjoy and celebrate life to the fullest.

 

WARNING: This post is photo-heavy. Really. 🙂
