Shopping and Settling

Me and lil Thea has gone out of our liblib Seria community last Saturday! Yahoo!

How? Thea's Roravirus vaccine is due and the hospitals here doesnt have one, they referred us to Jerudong Park Medical Center which is 1 1/2 hours away from our place. Can u picture our location now? However, the upside is it's 30 min away to Bandar, the city where the malls are!

Malls here aren't like those in Manila. Nothing beats Mall of Asia! Hahaha. "The Mall" the medyo sossy one is 3-storey tall and siguro as big as Greenbelt 1. It does have nice stalls but you see I dont wear tudongs and "bulaklakin" dresses that women here fancies. But I have to say that the cinema is really nice. The lounge area has this huge TV screen for movie trailers. Would have love to go in the cinema but can't because we have Thea now.

First stop was bookstore.
"Five little ducks" and "Rainy Day Special".
Then we looked for Thea's jacket and Nyem's shirts, Nyem's shoes. Shopping really is an energy booster haha! Oh, Vhin went to the gadgets =P. Next stop was for Thea's weaning set, Thea's PJ's (those we brought from Calumpit will not fit in a couple of weeks), and other little girl stuff. After paying everything it's a little late na. Its time to go back to Seria =P

Seria might not have all the perks Manila has but I am beginning to love it. For this is the place God brought us. A place to bond as a family. A place where Vhin, Thea and I were able to rely on each other exclusively. Surely God knows what's best for us. If it has the gimmicks Manila has we might not have come to know the value of each other as much as we have learned it here in this liblib place.

Seria may not be the prettiest place but it is the best place for us...for now =D Hoping all of us may learn to love the place where we are. God bless you!


Hello! Its been a while. Alvin turned 30, Thea turned 5 mos, I had a mild case of mastitis which resulted to no blog post for several days.

Mastitis: inflammation of the breast in connection with pregnancy, breastfeeding and weaning.It is caused by blocked milk ducts or milk excess.

It was Saturday night, March 28, when I felt that my right breast was rather aching in an unusual manner. Sunday morning came, Alvin's birthday pa naman, I had fever na with chills on the side! Wahoo, I couldnt stand up and when I did I almost fell. I was rather sad not to be able to cook a meal for my husband, not to be able to post the blog I was working on for his birthday, and not to be able to do anything per se. It was his birthday, yet he did all the chores. Well, i managed to sponge bath Thea and made her wear the "Happy Birthday Daddy" shirt we prepared. So there, my doctor once again took care of his nyem nyem, putting hot compress on my right breast to unclog the duct on his birthday!


do you know this nursery rhyme?

Itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout. Down came the rain and wash the spider out. Out came the sun and dried up all the rain. And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again.

Tagalog version - Alvin's way:

Maliliit na gagamba umakyat sa sanga.Bumuhos ang ulan tinangay sila. Sumikat ang araw naputol ang sanga. Malilit na gagamba, patay lahat sila. (hehehe)
