    Seeing Blue Everywhere

    Deej is finally done working on the baby’s room, it took him maybe a month. If I haven’t been stopping him to buy stuff that I find expensive, he would have completed this project earlier. I’m obviously the “economical” (the fancy word for cheap) one between the two of us. Haha. I like how it turned out, it’s not too much and not too ordinary either. Deej really has a knack for decorating our house – thanks to his Houzz app! LOL. The baby won’t exactly be sleeping in this room, though. He’ll be close and cozy with mommy. :) Since we’re having a boy, naturally, most of the baby’s…

    My Baby Shower in Bacolod

    This weekend was extra special because I spent it in Bacolod with friends who insisted I come home so they can throw me a baby shower. It started when two of my close friends bumped into each other at the mall two weeks ago. They then messaged me and got me to confirm I’ll be coming home this weekend so they can organize a baby shower for me. I laughed at the silly thought at first, but they were serious, it turns out.

    Potipot Getaway

    Every weekday, I am on Skype chatting with my three favorite girlfriends. Sarj and Romz are online by 8-9am, then Bheng joins us around 4pm (she’s working on American time). Our topic is different everyday: from work, travel, boyfriends, families, other people (yes, we’re tsismosa like that), to what awaits the four of us in the inevitable future — marriage, babies/kids, businesses, buying a house/car, etc. Our “chatroom” (ugh, so mIRC!) is also where we encourage one another on just about anything anyone of us is going through. We are each other’s kunsintindor, backing each other up no matter what the circumstance is. Right now, we’re all fully supporting Romz…

    The car that blogging bought

    Hey guys, this is my new pre-owned car! It’s obviously not the best one, it’s just an old Toyota Corolla ’92. But at least now I don’t have to go through the torture of finding a cab ride and/or arguing with the cab driver (who either doesn’t want to drive me to my desired destination or overcharges me). I’m sure this is every Filipino passenger’s nightmare! The downpayment I gave for the car was the money I recently earned online. I also pitched in my 13th month pay so technically this is a car that blogging and my Christmas bonus bought! Lol. Before you comment anything, let me just mention…
