Location: Philippines
Status: Alvin is working in Brunei while me and Thea lives here in Pinas.
I am 3 1/2 months pregnant, OB hasn't allowed nyemnyem to fly. Has she given me the go signal, perhaps we had celebrated it again in Brunei! But spending it here in the Philippines is no less special than those spent in the Abode of Peace. It was a day to remember here's why.

Hubby went home last May 17 to be with us on our 4th Year Wedding Anniversary! We are really blessed that he is in a near country, that way we could spend each year together. Not all OFW couples can celebrate anniversaries together and with that alone we are very thankful!

I had a lovely bouquet! He also gave me the 2nd & 3rd book of Hunger Games! Then there's this new phone I am now loving -- note hindi Android hihi!

But wait there's more!
I cooked a hearty meal for the dearest husband! Cheesecake, baked mussel in garlic and butter, sinigang (by request) and cranberry juice hehe I had UTI (that's another kwento). Lunch at home for the king :)

Fun time with the little girl!

And some alone time with the dear husband! Here is the lobby of the hotel we checked in on our anniv. Near St.Francis church Pasig :)

Thank you dear Lord for giving us another year to make new memories. And we thank you for Ate Thea (love typing Ate) and bunso!

Has it been 4 years? Indeed it was!

Bonus: My little princess giving wafer stick to her dad! --love--

Finding Uniqua

It was morning of April 10 when I last saw Uniqua. I hid her under my pillow before Thea gets a hold of her. She never lets her go thus often hinders activity time, so I try to hide her sometimes. She managed to get her and I dont know what happened after that because I never saw her again.

In case you don't know Uniqua, she is the pink spotted friend from Backyardigans.
Following are photos of my lil girl playing with Uniqua and taking her to places.

plane Going home to Pinas, Uniqua will never be in the check in baggage laging hand carry yan!
Lastly, a picture that shows how much she is loved by my princess. "She tucks her in." Off to bed now Iqua. I hope you're fine wherever u are.

I was pretty sad when we couldn't find uniqua. Even thea's lolo and Lola are quite concerned about the loss. Her cousins helped me find her but no uniqua was found. So I raised the issue at my FB account. And ask friends to find uniqua for thea. Out of the four I tagged, all based in Canada where backyardigan merchandise abound, 3 replied to find uniqua for our princess. As of this day we have 4 uniqua's, plush toys, one already here in Pinas and 3 is still on its way.

Sabi nga Ask and you shall receive! But if anyone who comes across this blog and has an access to a similar Uniqua my girl is holding in the pics above please do buy me one - I'll pay you promise. I saw the pirate Uniqua toy on ebay but it is in US we'll have to figure out how to deliver it here.

What's your favorite toy when u were a kid? Mine I think is a doll named Emma I got.from an aunt who worked in London. Its a rag doll actually but it was my gave coz she got.my name on her chest!
