Little Martians

Little Martians is a space themed play place for children much like Kidz Republic and Active Fun. The only difference is that aside from the slides and small rock climbing area, there's also a small area where kids can play computer games.

This is where I left Ykaie when I met Brenice the other day. It's a good thing that nowadays there are play places like this where you can safely leave your child to play. She will enjoy herself and interact with other kids while you do the groceries or do some errands. 
Aside from the staffs who look after the children while they have fun, another thing that I like about them is that they have a fingerprint scanner. They scan the guardians/parents fingerprint when the child goes in. When you claim your child, you'll also have to have your fingerprints scanned. They make sure that the person claiming the child is also the person who left it.

Ykaie enjoyed two hours of playing at Little martians. Just in case you are wondering,rate is P165/hr.

Dinner with Brenice

Sometimes, life gets in the way of friendship. We have families, work, kids, problems and more problems. This year I wanna change all that and I wanna see friends more often. I realized that it's also another way you can de-stress.

Brenice and I go way back since high school. We don't go out often.We see each other once a year which is like having an annual check-up-- not really your favorite thing to do {LOL!} but I don't think that the frequency of meet-ups measures how good your friendship is. You see, we only see each other once a year but there are stories that only WE can talk about.

I told Brenice that I want to go out more often. She always go out on field works and has a really busy schedule. I also have a, sort of, busy schedule but I really hope we find the time... I had such a great time yesterday...the food, the stories and the photos! I want more food, photos and chika time!
When I told Ykaie we were meeting her Ninang, she got excited. When she saw Bren, she gave her a hug and she warmed up to her immediately. Feeling close talaga lagi itong anak ko, which is a good thing.
Sana nandito si Rence tsaka si May. I'm sure mas masaya...

Uso na pala ang Thanksgiving sa Pilipinas??

Kanina ay um-attend ako ng Thanksgiving Lunch. Akala nyo naman sobrang layo. Dito lang sa kabilang bahay, kila Tita Becka. Mga 15 steps away from our house. Well, galing naman sya ng Amerika  kaya understood na sine-celebrate nya talaga ang Thanksgiving. Di ko naman sukat akalain na marami na pala ang nagse-celebrate nyan dito including malls-- may Thanksgiving Sale sila. Naloka naman ako doon.

Well, it's not bad naman kasi you are giving thanks for your bountiful life. Nakaka-surprise lang kasi parang naki-tradisyon na tayo. Sa akin okay lang naman, wag lang akong pupuwersahin na pabilhin ng Turkey..hahaha..

...at dahil bukod sa mahirap hanapin ay mahal pa ang turkey, nag roasted chicken na lang kami. Hop on over to The Peach Kitchen to check out what we had for Thanksgiving Lunch. {pero bukas na kayo mag-hop on..baka bukas ko pa mai-post..gabi na eh, hahaha}

Good Night!


Isang araw na walang magawa at nakapang-hiram ng side car sa kapitbahay...

GT: Accessories and Apparel Section

I used to collect different types of earrings when I was still single, kaya naman madalas ako sa accessories section sa mall. Well, noon yon pero nung nagka-baby na at sinimulan na ni ykaie na hablutin ang earrings ko sa tuwing may suot akong earrings, trinigilan ko na ang pagbili. Isa lang kasi ang natitira parati.

Sa apparel section naman, di din ako madalas. Namimili lang ako kapag may paghahandaan na occassion or may sale at may nagustuhan ako...

Wala naman akong masyadong masabi,girls..Bawi next thursday.

Learning Poker

I feel left out. Everyone I know plays poker. Some play online and some play real poker with coins or dares as their bets. I think I have to learn how this stuff  is played. Of course, I'd have to do it secretly so no one knows I'm trying to learn how to play poker. Then I'm gonna surprise my friends.

I don't want to ask someone to teach me. I'm going to download one of those gaming platforms for online casinos. It's a good thing that there are websites providing information about them.Websites wherein all the information about gaming, strategies and what's the best so you can choose. This makes everything so convenient. You don't have to go to a casino just to play. It saves you time, travel and effort-- all the hustles and bustles of a land-based casino.

All you need is just a compatible computer, internet connection and a viable payment system. Don't worry, I'd be playing in moderation.

November 19, 2010

Yesterday, we went out to celebrate Ykaie's third birthday. She will have a Tinkerbell party tomorrow with her cousins but we wanted her to blow a candle and to have a small celebration on the exact date that she was born.
 So before going to the grocery to buy some stuffs that we are going to use at the party tomorrow, we ate at The Mango Tree Bisto. {A close-up of what we had in here}
A few poses before our order arrives....
Let's pose for daddy!
Love the purple curtains at the restaurant!
After lunch, we headed to Timezone and I let her play with all the games she likes and ride all the rides she loves! It was a tiring but fun day.

Tomorrow is her Tinkerbell Party and daddy has a big surprise for her.

Somebody turned 3 today!

You used to be a really small person and you are growing up so fast. I can still remember how I stay up all night and watch you sleep, cry and drink milk. Today, you tell mommy not to hold your hand anymore  because you can do some things on your own--well, small things..and I'm beside you really, but totally not holding you.

You sometime argue with me on what to wear,{you think orange shoes goes with red shirt}, you now have a favorite color, you have a favorite food--- you now have a favorite everything. Seeing you decide on small things on your own makes me happy.

You are growing up before my eyes and yet I still think you are growing up too fast. It's gonna be another year of adventure for you......... and for us, who are and always will be beside you no matter what.

Happy Birthday, Ykaie!


May Echuserong Palaka

.......sa The Peach Kitchen...Nakakaloka!

Okrayin daw ba ang recipe ko ng Beef Misono and Vegetable Misono? Eto ang sabi...
Mai gazz! Naglagay ng recipe sa comment section! The comment before his {or her} comment kasi said that it tastes just like Tokyo Tokyo's. Well, that's their opinion and they are entitled to it. I wasn't claiming that this is Tokyo Tokyo's recipe.

I just had to reply:

Dear authenticjap,

I am not claiming that this is the Tokyo Tokyo version. This is my blog. This is my version.You have to put your recipe on your own blog...

I love butter and I'll put it in my purse and carry it around if I want to.

You shouldn't be affected.

Leighna's Pirate and Fairies Party

We attended Leighna's first birthday party yesterday. Ykaie got to wear her pirate costume which was really intended as her Halloween costume.Remember, we weren't able to go Trick or Treating because she was hospitalized the week before so the costume went directly to the closet.

Anyway, Ykaie enjoyed the party so much she didn't wanna eat anything! All she wants to do is play and check things out. {numero unong usisera kai to}.She had her nails painted pink, her hair sprayed pink, she had face painting and she even served ice cream to the guests!
 emily, edel, cheryl, berlyn and rommie
It's nice that I met my high school classmates/friends again after such a long time.

Malapit na ang Pasko talaga. Kaya naman itong si ykaie niyayang sumayaw si Santa..

Ykaie is already excited.

We don't use diapers anymore

We haven't been using diapers during daytime since Ykaie turned two. I was already able to potty train her.

Today, was good news.The other day we {Ykaie} have started not wearing any diapers to sleep. She didn't wet the bed for two days now. She's turning three in a few days and I thought that it's about time she lets go of diapers. What I do is wake her up every three hours to pee which is really not a problem for me since I'm really a light sleeper and is used to waking up at night. It didn't become a problem with Ykaie too.

How did I manage to get her to wake up? Well, I kinda talked to her about this a month ago and she agreed to give it a try. Then I reminded her of our "talk" every week just to make sure she doesn't forget about it. The other day, when I told her that we are going to start that night she just said "Cge" {Ok}.

I'm really so proud of her and I'm really proud that it's so easy to talk and make an agreement with her.

GT: Grocery Time

Grocery shopping is one of my favorite activity. Kahit yata mag-grocery ako every other day kung pwede lang ay gagawin ko. Hindi nawawala ang toiletries and chichirya. Pati na yogurt and yogurt drinks for ykaie.
Si ate naman, nangho-hoard ng coke zero...ako, naghahanap ng mga ingredients para sa bagong dish na iluluto....
.....o kaya naman nangangalkal ng mga bagong products. Si ykaie naman ay laging naghahanap ng mga grocery samples kagaya ng mga bagong noodles or choco drink. Kaya kung may mga free taste malamang nakapila kami..hahaha.

Halloween 2010

We weren't able to go Trick or Treating this year because ykaie got hospitalized and was discharged only on the 30th. Since we can't go out on the 31st, what we did was just dress her up  and made her give away candies to our shop's customers.

It was still a fun Halloween Night for her.
