Hello December!

Christmas songs are now playing at the local radio stations. Hello December! Merry Christmas everyone! I so love listening to Christmas songs. I feel so calm and relaxed just by listening to it. I wish it will be Christmas all year long. But it can be Christmas everyday right? With your love ones and friends by your side it will. Now I am off to buy some gifts for the Holidays. A good studio 4 at musicians friend will be the perfect gift this Christmas to those music inclined friends and love ones. Happy shopping everyone!

Trimming the Tree


My dear daughter is helping me set up the tree the other day. She was so happy about it. She was enjoying herself hanging those snowflakes ornaments to the tree. She kept on saying WOW every time she sees the tree with decorations in it. She still can’t say Christmas tree instead she say “Quisinin”! She is so cute!

Family Christmas reunion excites me

Another Family Christmas Reunion to look forward to this December. I cannot wait for this one! We will have lots of games for adults and kids. Foods that are yummy and the place has swimming pool! How cool is that! The presentations of each family are the most awaited ones. And I haven't think of what to do this year. Do you have any ideas? let me know ok? I always gets excited whenever we have reunions. Exchanging of gifts are what excites us most. I wonder what to give to my manita/manito this year. I think a mixer lift will be a good one. It is a great gift for bakers in the family. Hmmm... Will think about that.


I am having a headache big time right now. I cannot be sick so I took paracetamol to ease the pain. I have no help in taking care of the kids so I must not get sick. It is so hard to be well in times like this. Cold weather and people surrounding you are sick as well. I need to double dose my vitamins C. I hope you are all well. Be safe everyone!

Buttkicker Gift

Another friend is celebrating his birthday next month and I don't have a gift for him! The buttkicker at gc will do I think. I saw it while he was using my laptop to check on it so I guess he wants it or something. He will enjoy it for sure because he is in a band. Will get some nap first as I am getting headaches already and my back hurts! will rest first and then go back to working later.


I am munching on some junk foods instead of healthy snacks right now. Ugh! I am swamped with work and I need to finish everything so that doesn’t permit me to go out and get some foods for snack. This will do for now. Will get something later after. Time is running and I will get spanked if i didn’t finish these. I hate cramming!

October is getting nearer and nearer and planning of the Octoberfest event should start as early as now. And great timing as a friend of mine is looking for Oktoberfest leaves invitation cards. It is important to him that he has a striking invite so he said he wanted to have a colorful wording ideas for Octoberfest invitation. I agreed to help him when he asked me the other day. It is now my quest to find sites that will solve his invitation problem.

My Afternoon Snack

I am having Lucky Me Pancit Pares right now. Yaya cooked and brought it to our bedroom as I am still working. Thank you Ate! I will surely miss having her as she will go on a 2 week vacation starting tomorrow. I am lucky to have her. I can’t wait till she gets back in August!

Musician Friend’s birthday

A friend will celebrate his 30th birthday next month and I was invited to his party. But I am so clueless on what to give him. Maybe that affordable gibson les paul classic at musicians friend would be perfect! I will canvass on how much is that and start saving up. He is into music anyways. He is in a band who performs in Manila. I am so excited to see him perform on his birthday. I bet he will. And maybe a few request of my favorite songs will be granted. I wish!

Eggs and Hotdogs


My kids love this over breakfast. But they are full so I ended up eating this. And I ate my breakfast already! Talk about being the leftover ( and sometime not leftover) eater! LOL! Maybe it is best to ask them first if they want to have breakfast or not.

What’s for Lunch

I have been planning on the weekly menu for my family. I’ve been struggling on what to cook for lunch and dinner. I have no problem on the snack and breakfast as I have that covered. I searched the web and found some yummy dishes but it’s so hard for me to follow the recipe as some of the ingredients are hard to find. So if you have some recipes that are easy to cook with easy to find ingredients please do share to me ok?

I am just gonna search for a nice vinyl banners printing site for a friend and off I cook lunch. Bye for now!

Rainy Sunday

It’s a cold morning for us here. Perfect bed weather but I need to get up to work. Yes it’s weekend and I need to work. I have a lot of unfinished projects and blogging to do today. As much as I want to slack today I simply can’t. Will make it up for the kids and the husband next weekend.

Sweet Mom

My mommy friend is trying her best to give everything to her kids. She works hard and makes effort to go home early to play with them before they go to sleep. She also buy expensive clothing and other things for them. And the latest news that I read from her blog is that she is getting one spot at guitar center for her eldest son.
Awww. that is so sweet of her. I wanna be like her when I grow up. haha!  I am trying to be a good mom for my kids. I want to give them everything they like. I love them so much.

Thankful for Yayas

I don’t know what to do if we don’t have a yaya. I will be crazy if I don’t get some help! Sometimes I am a very short tempered Mama. I easily get mad at them even by the simplest thing that they do like messing up their toys after I packed them or cleaned them. So thank God there is help. I am lucky to have my Yaya right now. I hope she changes her mind of leaving for vacation. I don’t know what to do if she is not here!

I love Lee Grane

She plays acoustic songs beautifully. I am such a fan of her. And she has this acoustic guitar pickup that I really like. If you haven't seen her perform you must watch her video on youtube. You will like her for sure as much as I liked her when I saw her at The Voice Philippines. Bamboo is so lucky to have her on his team. I will watch her in the coming episode of The Voice Philippines. I am so excited!

Sleeping Together

I am so thankful when my kids sleep together. They are in bed by 7pm. How I wish it is like this forever. So I can also work, read emails, scrap and most importantly sleep early too! You know after they sleep it is my ME time. My time to sit in front of my laptop. So when they sleep late I also stay late and sleep late. But never got to wake up late as my youngest will wake up early. Oh motherhood!

Dance Recital Gift ideas

A friend of mine is looking for some dance recital gift ideas as her daughter is going to her first dance recital next month. She asked me where to look and of course I pointed her to Pinterest. There are a lot of DIY there which she can do and save a lot of money instead of buying expensive stuff. I hope she doesn’t get addicted to pinning. hehe!

We got to visit Irosin, Sorsogon once again. The last time I have been here is I was still in elementary. Too long ago! I passed by this place when we went to Bulusan last December to attend the wedding of my friend. It’s nice to be back! I love this place!

Ray Ban Sunglasses

This is my sister wearing her favorite ray ban sunglasses.


I love to have one too but it's too pricey for me. I am still saving up for a new sunglasses. A ray ban 4147 is my target. I really like this one. Simple and stylish at the same time. I hope to get more work so I can get this before summer ends. Will check some ray ban shades for hubby too. He needs it the most as he travels often. Will check the website now.




Cate loves to take a bath outside. She enjoys the sun and the fresh air. She really loves summer because she can go swimming. I am planning of enrolling her next year to a swimming lesson. I know she will enjoy it. It is my frustration to learn how to swim. I hope I still can learn it. It is my favorite sports.


We went to my in laws house the other day. I noticed there are de-sta-co clamp and other kinds of clamps in their garage. I asked hubby what are those for? But he didn’t answered my question as he was busy texting a client. And until now I don’t know what are those clamps are for. Oh well, will just ask him again later after he finished washing the car.

Live Simply


A very nice quote I found on the web.

Good morning everyone!

The Arturia Wish

My niece will soon graduate from elementary and she was asking us for an Arturia as a gift. Which I have to Google as I don't know what it is. haha! Well, I love what I researched about that brand and I hope to find it here or maybe I can just order it online since her graduation is still far. She will be a good musician I know. She loves it and I am so proud of her.

Sleepy Head

My darling daughter is still asleep at this time (time check: 10am). She slept really late last night at 12mn I think. I was nursing my son when she fell asleep so I was not aware of the time. It is her sleeping time usually. I am having a hard time changing it so i just let her. This is also good to me as I can have ME time while waiting for her to wake up. My son is napping as well so double yey! These are the simple things that makes me happy. haha!

A Double Bass

Whenever I see a double bass I remember lent. It is the time where the local musicians play that instrument. During some prayer meetings and prayers for the departed soul. I love the beating sound of it. The musician who plays that is a veteran. He is using the instrument for a long time already. I wish I asked to try it as I never got to attend prayer meeting in the past years.

Valentine’s Date


We celebrated Valentine’s Day at Misibis Bay in Cagraray Island, Bacacay, Albay. The place is awesome! I love it there! the food is delicious and there are a lot to choose from. We went there with my family and we had a great time! I wish it was only me and hubby but with the kids age we cannot leave them yet with the yaya. I will just worry about them if we went just the two of us. I felt loved anyways and that is what Valentines is all about right?

Beautiful Milestones

I was looking at the web workflow software when I saw my darling daughter close her eyes, lying on her bed and with her blanket on. I though she was really sleeping! This happened after her bath time so I expect her to take a nap. But nah she is just playing pretend. I love looking at her that time. The expression on her face is so sweet and so magical. I am so lucky to be able to see these little milestones in her life. If only my eyes are video recorders there are a lot of beautiful things to watch in the future. We don't have a video cam just a DSLR. But I can't capture every moves of my kids with our camera. I hope to get one soon.

Good Night!

I spent my day in front of my laptop working, so here I am saying good night to you all. I will hit the sack now.

Have a nice day tomorrow!


This and That!

Slowly Cate is pointing at her wants at the mall. We went there yesterday and she wanted to buy xylophone which she already have at home. I didn't entertain her as we don't have extra money to buy a new one. We just proceeded with what we are doing but after a while she pointed at another toy. Ugh kids!
I wanted her to appreciate music as both her parents loves it. Mama loves to sing while Papa is in a band before. The reason why I buy musical instrument toys than ordinary toys. I know there’s an inner musician in her. She can hum a tune while watching barney. yes I caught her doing that. So I hope she’ll develop that talent.

This little One

DSC_7101 copy2

Will soon become a toddler. Look how big he is now!

hans 11th month

He will celebrate his 1st birthday in two weeks time and by that time he is no longer a baby. Awww… I am having separation anxiety to his babyhood! He grew up so fast! Soon he will no longer be needing my help. He cannot walk yet but he is going there. He is one little explorer too! Oh baby Hans please don’t grow up too fast!

Sing Sing!

I got to sing my heart out last Christmas at my parents house. It felt good after not holding a mic for a long time. Nope I am not a pro. But I can sing. My dad is my number 1 fan. haha!

I missed singing at the karaoke. It is one of my passion since I was a child. But I got sad to know that one of mom's karaoke got broken. I used the old one last Christmas and it was good. The latest has more songs to choose from though. But I still had a great time singing at the old one. I hope mom will replace it soon. I will take a look at www.acekaraoke.com later if there’s a good deal.

Cars Themed Party


We will be having a cars themed party for Hans’ 1st birthday in 2 weeks! Weee!!!

I am now busy preparing for his birthday. Ordering this and that. Booking this and that too! I hope this party will be a good one and I hope my son will be happy on his grand day. I want it to be simple this time. Limited budget that’s why. But I know that this party will be special. Hans will have a great time for sure! And I can’t wait for this to be over. Planning a party is so stressful!

Organize and Plan

When we went to Manila last October I passed by a store ( I forgot the name) and it was crowded. I don't know why but there are a lot of people waiting outside. The manager is entertaining those people and commanding his staff to organize those people. I think I heard him say "get those stanchions here!". I think before you hold a promo or anything that will drive people to go to your store, plan first and see how people will react to the promo. It is better to have a clean and organized one than to have a bad reputation of having a bad service right?

Sickies in the House

My kids got sick this week. Cate is better and Hans is on the way to recovery but both still have cough. I am so worried the other day as they got high fever. I wanted to take them to the hospital but thank God they got better the following day. It’s not easy to have sick kids. It will test your patience and mama capability. I am glad I survived. I am thankful that my husband is there for us. I don’t know what to do if he wasn’t there. Thank Hon!
