Our Second Pregnancy Story: Meet Nazarene Joy, Our Rainbow Baby

It was the second week of June 2019 when the hubby and I learned that we were pregnant. My mens was delayed and I suddenly had this strange feeling that I might be pregnant and what do you know, the home pregnancy test I took turned out to be positive! We saw the Ob-Gyne on June 22nd but we didn’t get to do an ultrasound until July 6th and that was when we confirmed that we were really expecting. Of course, both of our extended families were ecstatic about the good news. As for the hubby and me, we were over the moon! 🙂

Weekend Story: Edwin’s 40th Birthday Celebration

Last weekend was meaningful and fun. The hubby turned 40 last Saturday and we celebrated it the best way we could. The celebrant wanted to go swimming courtesy of the condo’s swimming pools and so we did. We just brought in some food which we partook of picnic style inside our unit.

On Sunday, we went to Festival Mall in Alabang to buy maintenance meds for my PILs (which they will take to Bohol with them this week) and had a post-birthday dinner for the hubby at Via Mare.

Weekend Story: A Birthday Bash in Bacoor + A Christening in Pasig

The hubby and I were in two locations last weekend. Of course, Bacoor is a given. On Saturday, we celebrated Mame’s 65th birthday at their place next door. She invited some friends and neighbors over. Her nephew Kuya Neil and his family (they’re the ones based in Mandaluyong that we occasionally visit) also came to celebrate with us. It was a good celebration and we had lots of fun. We were also thankful to Mame’s guests for coming to her lunch party despite the rains and the flood they encountered on their way to Bacoor and in the city itself.

On Sunday, the hubby and I, along with my parents and my sister Jodie, attended the christening of our cousin’s baby in Pasig. The reception was held at Comida China de Manila along C5 Road. There we saw many relatives from my father’s side of the family. Ayun, kamustahan at kwentuhang walang humpay! Nag-enjoy kami lahat at umuwing masasaya. We even got to pay a visit to the St. Pio Shrine at Libis on our way home to light some candles.

Weekend Story: Office Team Building at Eagle Point Resort in Anilao + Family Time in Bacoor

Last weekend came early to me and my officemates. We had our office team building on April 25-26, 2019 at Eagle Point Resort in Anilao, Mabini, Batangas. I then spent the rest of the weekend with the hubby, my SIL, and my extended family in Bacoor.

The 2D1N stay in Anilao was a good one. We swam and snorkelled, we ate and drank. We even got to rent the videoke machine at the resort and sing to our hearts’ content. Fun times!

Weekend Story: A Christening, A Birthday, and A Few Other Stuff

Last long weekend was quite hectic. On Saturday, the hubby and I, along with Mame, went to the wet market in the morning to buy fresh produce. We also drove to Alabang in the afternoon to hear mass and go malling. Actually, it was just Mame and I who roamed around Alabang Town Center (ATC) because the hubby met up with his car club friends at this restaurant within the Filinvest area and he just picked us up at the mall when it was time for us to go home.

On Sunday, our first activity was the christening of a friend’s miracle baby scheduled around lunchtime. (The event was filled with good vibes and I even cried a little hearing the very emotional prayer of our friend mostly expressing her immense joy for finally having a child after so many years of trying to conceive. God really has wonderful plans for all of us!) We would then join the family at night for the birthday dinner of my brother Dan at…where else but our new fave Betoy’s Restaurant Molino! 😛
