Weekend Story: Joint Quarantine Birthday Celebration

Last weekend was special because the hubby and I, along with my sister Nyam, got to celebrate our birthdays together. It was purely family, of course, because we were still under MECQ in Bacoor. For our convenience, we just had cakes and some dishes ordered, except for the lasagna that my sister Jodie took the time and effort to make for us (thanks again, sestra!).

Our baby NJ is now the official candle blower in the family. Whenever we buy a cake either for a birthday or some other occasion, we make sure to include a candle or two for her to blow. The excitement on her face whenever she blows those candles is priceless!

Weekend Story: Baby NJ’s Vaccine Day + Minor Accident

Last weekend was quite busy. On Saturday, the hubby and I took baby NJ to her pedia in Manila for yet another vaccine shot. (This time, it’s Hepa A vaccine and we paid P3,500 for it which was already inclusive of consultation fee.) The rest of the day was spent finishing errands.

Our Sunday was not so happy because baby NJ had a minor accident. She tripped while walking (ang bilis nya kasi maglakad, mana sakin, waaaah!) and bumped her knees on the ground and her left forehead on the sidewalk. She cried really loud and my mommy heart got broken into pieces for a few minutes. Her knees didn’t get scratched but her left forehead was a different story. While it didn’t swell, it turned red and got a small scratch. We immediately put an ice pack on it to soothe it. We also observed NJ in the next hours for other symptoms. Fortunately, she didn’t have any and even returned to her normal self just as soon as she stopped crying.

Weekend Story: Car PMS + Gifted Clothes

Last weekend was a bit busy. On Saturday, I accompanied the hubby to Quezon City for our car’s preventive maintenance. It took a few hours before we were allowed to drive the car again and since we got hungry while waiting, we opted to dine at one of the restos in Banawe before going home in Bacoor. Our Sunday was spent at the condo where we did a mini photoshoot of baby NJ and her gifted clothes just for fun. She’s one lucky baby because she gets a lot of nice dresses, tops, and bottoms from our family and friends, with or without a special occasion.

Weekend Story: Tagaytay Trip + Condo Visit with Baby NJ

I guess up until our rainbow baby is at least two years old and tiny no more, I’m gonna call her “baby NJ” on this blog. I still can’t believe how we got so lucky for having a baby at this point in my and the hubby’s married life and at this juncture in world history where COVID-19 has changed the way people do things and look at life in general. But before I become more emo, let me talk about the long weekend that passed.

Our long weekend was extra special because the hubby and I got to take baby NJ to Tagaytay, her first out-of-town trip that involved no doctors and vaccines, haha. She wasn’t able to have a picture with the famous Taal Lake though, because the two establishments we visited — Cliffhouse and Bag of Beans — didn’t allow entry to people 15 years old and below in compliance with IATF health protocols. Actually, we never planned to dine inside those restos, we just wanted her to have a decent photo with the famous lake, but to no avail.

Weekend Story: Drive to Alabang + Promotion Dinner Treat

Have you tried dining out lately? We have on a few occasions, the most recent one was last Saturday at Ramen Yushoken because we were craving for ramen and not just any ramen but their very own tantanmen. So, the hubby and I drove to Alabang to eat tantanmen and run some errand for my side of the family. We were not surprised at all that Ramen Yushoken still had a queue outside despite the threats of the virus. We waited for a good 40 minutes before we got seated. We were extra careful, of course. It was a quick but very satisfying lunch. On Sunday, my brother Dan treated the family to dinner because he has recently been promoted at work. We had KFC and Jollibee (two of the fastfood brands we patronize). We capped off our dinner with the desserts (i.e. cheesecake cups and cookies) he ordered from his enterprising friends.

The rest of the weekend was spent with our baby NJ whom we love to pieces!
