We're going home

Hi peeps!

I'm kinda busy this week preparing our stuff as well as for my mom's VISA, Yes! My mom will be joining us here for a while. We are leaving early next week. Hubby's telling me not to be too much of a perfectionist with this trip cause I have a tendency to get disappointed when vacation plans don't go well. Being an OC, I can't help but write everything that we will be needing and organize our itinerary as early as now. I will be sending an email to the designers I work with that I will be on leave.

I have told some of my friends and former officemates. I miss them and we plan to have lunch or dinner or probably a night out. We have a lot of catching up to do.

I also prepared some invites for my Mom's surprise Bday Party and I already sent an email to her friends. Thank goodness for technology, I don't have to look for her college friends.

I will also prepare a Baby Shower for my SIL (Sister in-law).

Pamper myself with massage from head to toe. I wish hubby's with me, he needs it more than I do.

A trip to Tagaytay highlands with my family and stroll around Tagaytay.

Attend my cousin's debut at the Manila Hotel. She was born and raised in the US, but wanted to celebrate it with relatives in the Philippines, so she gets the chance to know them.

Bonding with Rein's cousins, Miles and Nina, Hubby's favorite nephew and niece. And from my side, with Charles.

Some personal things to do.

I''ll find time to scrap and leave some love to my fellow scrappers, surely i'll have lots of pictures to scrap.

Eat and have fun.

Oh, I really hope that hubby could join us.

Hope you guys are doing ok. Thanks for stopping by.

Some Updates....

First, I would like to thank all of you for your concern over my migraine thingy. And for those who sent private emails, I was deeply touched, thanks! Hopefully it won't happen again. Kisses to all of you.

Last Saturday, we celebrated Rein's mini debut, she turned 18th months old. We had dinner Friday night at Bella Bella Restaurant, a truely authentic Italian resto {their lasagna is to die for}. We went to Tokyo Sea Life Park on Saturday afternoon. It was unplanned so we forgot to bring the video cam. We left after lunch and I brought my meds for migraine in case I'll have another attack. Everything went smoothly.

This week, I was busy preparing for our trip back home. Rein and I will be flying to Manila, since my Mom will be there and most of my relatives from the US too. My cousin Ella will celebrate her 18th Birthday at the Manila Hotel. I will be using hubby's NW worldperks miles. I'll keep you posted on this.

We were supposed to go to Premium Outlet today, but hubby can't walk too much, he has a problem with his left ankle although he visited the doctor already, still he feels some pain. We decided to postpone it and wait for my mom who will be coming with me when we come back here. We plan to visit Mt. Fuji as well. Hopefully, everything goes well.

Rein is having fun playing games on our laptop, she loves Sesame Street ones especially Elmo's. That leaves me without a computer to create layouts and visit scrap sites. When she's done playing, she would go to the couch and ask me to read with her. Oftentimes she wants to go out, even though she feels the sweltering summer heat. By the time we get back, we're both exhausted but then I'll have to prepare our dinner, put her to bed and guess what???? Even if I ask my hubby to wake me up so I could do my stuff, I couldn't get out of bed.

Today, we went out although the weather was unpredictable.

Hope you guys are having a great weekend!

Another Migraine Attack

This morning, I had a severe Migraine attack. I was done uploading my layout entitled "Precious Baby Girl" at scrap sites and left some praises for other scrappers, done with some household chores, when I felt the pain. It was different from the usual migraine that I've had. I shivered, vomited more than thrice, my head turned upside down. I was soo helpless, my hands were shaking when I tried to give Rein some food.

I called hubby, he was having lunch at that time and I told him that I can't handle Rein. I let her play when I was lying on the bed but saw her pull the chair and put back some plates in the sink. I really can't handle her at that time. I went on and off to the toilet.

Finally, hubby arrived and we rushed to the hospital. I was given some meds. This has been my problem eversince, especially during Summer time. I feel alot better now, I slept when we got back and woke up before 8PM.

Hubby's asking me, how does it feel to suffer from migraine attacks? I told him, he's lucky he doesn't have it because it's really such a burden.

Two nights of Spicy Thai Food Dinner

Last Friday and Saturday night, we had a Sumptuous Spicy Thai food dinner. Yep! It was sooo yummy. Since Friday was payday, we decided to have dinner at Tinun's Thai Restaurant. Rein had her dinner at a Japanese Restaurant before I proceeded to Tinun's. Hubby came from the office and we met at the restaurant. Last Saturday, we met Karen and her family. I met Karen through an online community for married couples. She was with her mom, hubby and her super cutie son named Aidan. We plan to meet again sometime this week. I wish she lives near our place.

The place was full, we waited for at least 10 mins.. I love the ambiance and the food is sooo yummy. We could never go wrong with our orders. Last week I had Tom Yam Gung {Shrimp}. The price is quite expensive, especially if you once lived in Bangkok and know how much it costs there. Oooopppss... When we were still in Bangkok, a Tom Yam Gung would only cost you around less than $2 from a delivery service. Here it's 1,000 Yen about $9.00 Whew!!!! But it's all worth it.

We ordered Thai Vermicelli salad, Fried Rice with Shrimp Paste, Fried Rice with Pork, Thai-style Sausage and Deep Fried Chicken Skin.

Yesterday it was raining when we left the house. We had a late lunch at Denny's. We planned to go to Takashimaya but the weather was so unpredictable, it was raining on and off, so we decided to go home instead. And besides, Rein was sleepy already.

I'm soo addicted to Thai food this week so I decided to cook some. We had Minced Pork with Holy Basil and Thai-style Omelet.

What else is happening?

I emailed Rein's Preschool and she's set to go on September, when she's 20 months old. We will be having a trial next Monday. I have to confirm and ask for another schedule since the time given to us is 10am, which means we have to leave around 9am during rush hour and on a Monday.

We are a bit disappointed that Brazil lost the game with France. But I'm still happy coz Italy, Germany and France are in. It was a super sports Sunday for hubby: Tour de France, Formula 1, Boxing and World Cup. Too bad we can't watch the upcoming World Pool Champioships…hubby’s so disappointed.

How was your weekend? Hope you had a great one.
