A Lovely Sunday Afternoon at Ayala Triangle

Dearest Cyler,

It was a lovely Sunday afternoon when your Daddy decided to take us in the park. As usual, you felt so giddy and excited about it. Your smile never fail to put a smile on our face. Just seeing you happy makes me happy too. Those smile are priceless. You run, we run. As I watch you run and laugh endlessly, I can’t help but get teary. I know someday you’ll be opting to live on your own and I hope when that time comes and when you read this post you remember all the happy things that we did together. Always remember that Daddy and Mommy are doing their best to make you happy. All the time. Sorry for those times when we have to say No because we don’t want to spoil you and all we ever wanted is to discipline you. It’s for your own good, sweetie. Someday when you have your own child, you’ll understand what I’m trying to say. We don’t want to give you all the things in the world, all we wanted is for you to be happy all the time, become a better person, and become God fearing. Remember that those trees, plants, grasses, and air that you breathe are gift from God. And don’t ever forget that God gave me you. Without Him, wala ka rin sakin. Anak, from this day forward I promise to become a better Mom to you (always) and allow me to serve you until my last breath. I know I was born to be your Mom and it’s my lifetime commitment with you. Thanks for teaching me how to love unconditionally and for showing me the real meaning of life. Mommy was born to love and nurture you. I love you from infinity and beyond!

Love lots,
Mommy

We spent our Holy Week in my hometown, Antipolo. And one of the things that we did during the long weekend was to celebrate my sibling’s graduation at Loreland Farm Resort. T’was my Graduation treat for her and it’s actually a pre-grad celebration. It was also unplanned, talk about biglaang lakad, you know. One thing I love about biglaang lakad? Natutuloy parati at bawal ang excuses! Agree? 🙂


My youngest brother(who is btw a certified pa-girl!), Kevin and my cousin, Rex.

Kung sila ba ang mowdels ng resort na’to tutuloy pa rin ba kau?! Chos!

We arrived at 9am-ish and as expected the resort was jam-packed already! Anyway, it’s not a big deal because we were there to have fun and not to count the number of people. We prepared tilapia, chicken bbq, tuna pasta (in red sauce), cupcakes, and lots of junk food!

Would you believe sa tinagal tagal kong nakatira sa Antipolo it is actually my first time to go here? Yes, it’s my first time to go here (paulit-ulit?) to think na sampung tumbling at kembot lang yan from our house. Weird? IKR! 🙂

Loreland Farm Resort is 15-20 minutes drive from Antipolo Cathedral Church and from our house. The resort is quite old but well maintained (in fairness). They also have zipline, restaurant, food stalls, mini-playground, chapel, sports and recreations, and spa inside the resort. Hindi ka mauubusan ng gagawin unless super dami talaga ng tao. They also have lots of swimming pools not to mention kiddie pools! Yes, mas madaming kiddie pools kesa sa adult pool so expect warmer water in the swimming pools…if you know what I mean. They also have many cottages kaya perfect sya kung isang barangay pa kau! This resort is perfect for any kind of family gatherings because of it’s ample space. We booked the Kubo and it only cost Php700 petot only. The entrance fee cost Php160/head during daytime and Php180/head during nightime, children 3ft and below is free of charge. They also have rooms if you wish to stay overnight. And they also have an overlooking view where you can see Laguna Bay from the resort.

I’ve heard 7Ft is their deepest pool (todo na yan!), most of the pools are 4-5ft only kaya naman ang saya saya namin magkakapatid especially Cyler! Ang dami namin pwedeng lakaran! HAHAHA! Ang hirap maging pandakekok eh noh! And you know what?! I already forgot how to swim kaya lakad mode lang lola ninyo. NKKLK! Ewan ko ang weird noh pati pala swimming skills nakakalimutan! LOL! O baka ako lang yun? Hahaha! Anyway, we did enjoy! Super! 🙂


Our “kung kaya ni Mister, kaya ni misis” pose!

Meet Mama and my siblings! We are BIG family and I love it! Our eldest sister wasn’t there though, she’s currently working in Saudi so we’re not complete in this impromptu family picture.


From L-to-R: Sacha (5th), Kevin (6th), Ate Annie (2nd to the eldest), Mama (ang pinaka bata sa lahat! Batang isip! hehe), Isang (4th), and I (3rd)!

And here’s my blissful child who loves the water SO MUCH!


ligalig na ligalig sa tubig!


Anak family picture din pag may time. Sensya na ayaw paawat sa tubig eh! Teehee!


Me: Hon, naiisip mo ba ang naiisip ko?
Cj: NR!

Oh what FUN! I really miss my family so much! It’s been awhile since we hung out together, I hope next time kumpleto na kami. Ate Donna, if your reading this post… uwi uwi din pag may time, OKAY?! :p

Still there’s no other place like “home”. 🙂

Saturday Malling With My Boys

Our Saturday started with chasing and running, and we love it! Daddy left the house in the morning for his Basketball Tournament, so it’s just me and my toddler again.Cyler ate pancake, mangoes, and banana for breakfast. After feeding him, I gave him a bath. In this usual routine, Cyler’s favorite part is taking a bath. He used to say “Shower! Shower!” while we were in the shower! And he loves soaking in the pail full of water. He loves water so much that is why I am having a hard time getting him out of the bathroom, once he dip into the water he doesn’t want to go out anymore!

Goofing around while eating! Mommy’s bad! churi! Churi! 😛

Finally, after many attempts to get him out, he finally gave in to Mommy. Sa wakas nauto ko din! What’s the trick?! Well, I showed his favorite toy car to him. Hehe While waiting for Daddy, we tried playing this “ga-la-sses” (that’s how he pronounce glasses). He used to call eye and sun glasses as glasses. He enjoyed wearing it but after a few minutes he gets bored wearing it. Oh well what do I expect from a toddler? Hehe

In the afternoon, after his Daddy came back from his Basketball Tournament, off we went to the nearest mall in our place, SM San Lazaro. Tamang pasyal lang ng bagets.

Strolling kung strolling ang bagets!

When we passed by at the movie house, Cyer was mesmerized by the moving led lights. He got really curious and stood (and stare!) in front of it for about 15minutes. He was so curious and was so giddy everytime he see the led lights moving. He was jumping and giggling the entire time. He looks so cute while watching the lights moving and he used to follow the direction of the lights. Silly and curious little boy, that is.

After watching the magnificent light show (for Cyler), we went at the arcade and we allowed our little boy to ride in the toy car and he enjoyed it A LOT! Well, it’s not a surprise because one of his current obsession is the car. This place is the best place for my two boys.

Too Fast, too Curious!

Broom! Broom!!

We went to Booksale (our favorite place!), we stayed there for about thirty minutes and I was able to purchased four books..only. Sob. These are some of our book loots, Where Are Baby’s Easter Eggs by Karen Katz and Because You Are My Baby by Henry North. I’ll make another post for the book. These two books are my favorite!

After that, we went at the supermarket to buy some diapers and food for Cyler. I’m so happy because finally Cyler appreciates yoghurt, Dutch Mill yoghurt drink that is. I guess he is no longer a picky eater! Woohooo! And because of that we gave him reward– lotsa hugs and kisses from Mommy and Daddy! YEAH! 🙂

And there, that’s how my Saturday goes with my boys. Simple, cool, chillaxin’, and fun filled Saturday. 🙂

 

Happy Friday the 13th!

We all know that yesterday was Friday the 13th and I’m glad to say that it’s one of the luckiest day of my life because I got the chance to see and catched up with my kumare’s-slash-kikay barkada-slash-college buddies last night. We rarely see each other that’s why I feel very happy when we had the chance to see each other. We have separate lives right now but despite of our supah hectic schedule we make sure that we still have time for one another. My friends are one of my greatest treasure in life because they’re my family. I had them with me for the long haul and they are proven and tested. They say count your age by friends and not by years and I must say I have so many friends that I can consider true friends. True friends are hard to find and when you had the chance to meet them don’t ever try to loose them.

Meet Marla and Earleen. I fondly called them Marlita and Erlinda. 🙂

Moving forward, last night we did our normal routine – eat, chat, and had fun. We had dinner together. I brought them at my favorite resto at Spaghetti Factory in Glorietta 5. Part of our dinner is our non-stop chikahan (catch up). Though we rarely see each other we make sure that nothing’s change and we know what’s happening to one another. They’re still uber kulit and crazy, I feel ageless when I’m with them. There is no dull moment with my girls, I must say.

Foodie + Friends + Fun = Happy Friday the 13th!

After having dinner, we had coffee at CBTL to continue the fun. We’re just laughing the whole night and didn’t mind the time. And indeed, we had a great time. I wish we have more time to for one another, to bond some more but I know it’s really different now. No matter how long we didn’t see each other our friendship will always remain. I love you both Mars (short for Kumare) and thank you for the wonderful time! It was a great time, yes it iz! Till our next kitakits! 🙂

How about you? How’s your Friday the 13th?! 🙂
