Yesterday was THE most tiring day for me. Rein and I went to her Pedia to check on her skin allergies and I also needed to buy Sebamed lotion for her. Our plan is to visit her Pedia, then go to Hokenjo for her 2nd round of Polio vaccine. But it was changed since she haven't taken the Chickenpox vaccine yet which is more important this season. She took the vaccine and I asked if she could get a blood test to find out what food is causing her allergy. Rein was already crying from the moment they checked on her weight and height. I feel that she's traumatized already.

They took Rein from me and placed her in a room to get her blood. I could hear her crying and I immediately followed them. Rein was calling me and she was binded with a towel and a fish-net like thing {I don't know what they call it} to restrain her. I couldn't resist crying when I saw her and I didn't imagine that they will take a lot of blood from her.

When it was finally over, I carried her to the Pharmacy. She didn't want to sit-down on her stroller. We went to the grocery for our 1 week food supply. After that we went home. I was carrying her the whole time. From the Supermarket to our house it took us more than 15 minutes of walking. It should be less than 10 mins. but since I was carrying her and moving the stroller, it took us much longer.

When we got home, my hands and legs were shaking. Rein is kinda heavy already plus I was moving a stroller with grocery items.

I've been very busy this past weeks, so I couldn't update my blog. Aside from the work I'm doing, I'm busy with Rein. We're doing a lot of activities.

Mother's Day Celebration {late post}

Last Friday, May 12. I had a Pre-Mother's Day Celebration with Rein. We had a late lunch at Denny's where we ordered our favorite dish and dessert. I just love "Mango with Milk Pudding", the Mango came from the Philippines and it'soo yummy. After lunch we went to her Pedia. I asked them to translate the date for Rein's Polio Vaccine. We then proceeded to Sunstreet where she played with other kids. She just loves it and you would see how happy she was with the kids, especially when she's playing on the slide.

Saturday, we didn't go out, weather was kinda bad so we stayed home. I prepared our favorite brunch "bacon, egg and fried rice". The whole day was spent with Rein, playing, reading and doing our things once in a while. TFC was on air for the Golden Week so we had a chance to watch some Pinoy shows and movies.

Around 1 am, I joined the Chat with Valerie at TDC and joined some challenges for NSD and Mother's day Celebrations. One of my favorites was the Treasure Hunting. I couldn't believe that I slept past 6 am, I also sent the e-card that I created for my friends and colleagues in Scrap World.

Sunday came. Hubby and Rein greeted me. Hubby did the planning, of course, since it's Mother's day. We had lunch at Outback in Chiba. It was a different experience when we were on our way coz we usually go to Shinjuku or some place with lotsa people. We were not familiar with the place, so hubby had a printed map. We walked for more than 10 mins. While walking, we both had a feeling that we were going to a town fiesta because of the houses that we passed by. We were laughing all the time, I had a feeling that we were going to a church and passing small streets, same thing if you were attending a fiesta in the Philippines.

Hubby was vindicated when we saw the mall. It's actually not what I expected. It's big and perfect for Rein. There was no queue so we had lunch past 12 noon. My favorite Bushmushroom is not available in any Outback in Japan. So we ordered Aussie fries and Calamari for appetizer. Of course, we requested for our favorite honey bread. We ordered Pasta for Rein. Hubby ordered Baby back Ribs and I ordered Ribeye Steak. Speaking of Steak, I miss New York Steak House at the Marriott Hotel, Bangkok. Their Angus Beef Steak is to die for. Anways, back to our orders, we planned on having a dessert since their signature dessert is the Thunder from Downunder Chocolate Brownie.

What did we talk about during lunch? Our life when we were still boyfriend and girlfriend. How happy we were at Dos Palmas where we did Scuba diving together, kayaking, snorkling, biking and lots of eating. It was my second time at the same place, the first one I did when I was still single and soul-searching. If you want to know more of this resort go check it out at The place is really romantic, alot of activities and the food is sooo yummy. We got the Bay Cottage. We'll definitely go back there.

It's so nice to reminisce all the wonderful things, you've done together.

What else did we talk about? Hmmm... Our Honeymoon... That Bali was overrated, we stayed at the The Intercontinental. The hotel is really nice, epecially the room. But the beach is just ok. What I really love, although I was scared to death when I went overboard, was our rafting trip. We also did parasailing and jet skiing. It was a superb experience. Hubby fell from the jet ski and when we arrived at Singapore, he was still in pain. Also talked about our 3 years honeymoon period in Bangkok. We were so glad that we were able to spend time together before our baby came last year. We really enjoyed being together. Our trips out of the country were superb. My first time to watch Formula 1 at Malaysia and my first ever Reversed Bungee in Singapore. I vomited after that by the way . The last one that I won't ever forget is the Turbo Drop, which we did twice, at Ocean Park Hong Kong. I didn't realize that I'm pregnant already at that time. Good thing Rein is soo strong.

I won't keep you from reading this kinda long, reminiscing story of us. It's just fun to remember things you both enjoy. Of course, there are so many things that we still want to do. I'll keep you posted when we do that. I just love to look back and can't hide the smile and glow in my face.

Weather is bad today. Rein is getting better.

Celebrate Motherhood!


Please take time to read this wonderful poem.

A Mother's love is something that no one can explain
It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain
It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it or take that love away ...
It is patient and forgiving when all others are foresaking
And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking ...
It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns
And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems ...
It is far beyond defining, It defies all explanation
And it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation ...
A many-splendored miracle man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence of God's tender guiding hand.

We downloaded American Idol, Amazing Race and Lost. We were able to watch all of them.

I've seen how disappointed Chris was by the look in his eyes. Can you believe I'm talking about it again. I'm still on the denial stage. My vote goes to Taylor and Elliot. Taylor has the strongest vote so far.

On The Amazing Race, I'm soo happy that team MoJo was finally eliminated. So it will be a battle between the Hippies, Frat Boys and Ray & Yolanda. The last race was from Aussie to Bangkok. Gosh! I miss Bangkok, again! I've seen familiar places that I used to go to when we were there. Again, it made me sad.

On Lost. They found another hatch, Libby died, though she said the word Michael. I just hope they figure it out and dig deeper. As always, they left us wondering what's gonna happen next.

That's it for now, I talked too much today. Today's weather forecast is Cloudy, I really hope to go out with Rein, if the weather permits.

WOW! Thank God it's Friday! Whew.

Shocking News

Although I haven't watched the result of American Idol yet. I read on the abc news site that CHRIS DAUGHTRY was ousted for the "Final 3" competition. I was really, really shocked!! Actually I called hubby, even though he doesn't want to know the result, I told him already and I was about to burst into tears, Yeah! I adore his voice soo much. I just don't understand why he got the least number of votes. How could it be??? I think it's not fair. Obviously, he was caught off guard. No one would think he'll be the one to be voted off, everybody thinks he's a shoe-in for the Finals. I thought it would be Katharine since she didn't perform well.

I will download the result tonight, FOX here is kinda late in telecast.

I'm soo disappointed. Could someone be manipulating the result? The so-called "mafia" style.

Anyways, good for Chris, he can start his 1st solo album right away and I will get a copy of it.

That's it for now, weather is not good today. I think it will last until next week. Have to go back to my work.

Thanks for reading!

What's new with me?

Wow! My last post was April 18 and today is May 9 already. It's been a while and I seldom visit my blog. I’ve been very, very busy that I couldn't update my blog. Last week, Japan celebrated Golden Week. It was a long holiday (3 working days). We went out almost everyday and Rein had soo much fun outside. The only downside was that it's soo expensive to go out. Anyways, we enjoyed it soo much.

I'm so happy with these new things that I'm doing, though sometimes I'm overwhelmed but still it's a new adventure for me. Hubby's helping me and he's very supportive. I'm thinking of ways to help him and I wish I could just push myself to the limit. If I could just absorb everything in one click and be a superwoman.

On Digital Scrapworld, I resigned again from one of the designers last May 1,.I can't commit to her anymore since I'm very busy. Love her stuff but I feel I have to let go for now. I will stick to 4 designers only, 3 of which are from The Digichick and Christy. With this I can concentrate more on the things I'm doing and not sacrifice the commitment I made to them. I've seen a lot of CT openings recently, some of them are amazing, sometimes I'm tempted to apply, if there's a designer that I really like, I might try. Do I make sense? :D hehehe... I also quit as a Design Team member on one of the scrap sites, I talked to the owner about it. If only I'm not busy, I would really really love being on a Design Team and hosting. At first, I was soo excited, but when I started with my new venture, I felt like my time is not enough since most of the team members are on the other side of the world.

On Rein, she's getting bigger and I am loving everything about her. She's such a happy and cheerful soul. There's so many new things about her and I just love being with her. Almost everyday we go to the Park, she would play and just mingle with the other kids. She enjoys it so much and I wouldn't trade being with her for anything else.

Thanks to all who wished me luck on my new endeavor. And to my sisterettes, inspite of a long distance relationship/friendship you never fail to communicate and give your support. And, of course, to my hubby. I will keep you posted on this.
