Mosquito Bites on Baby

A couple of weeks back, when Maco and I went downstairs she didn't have any mosquito bites, though she did have some marks from it also, but it was just a couple or so and it was already like a bruise meaning it's been there some time. Those marks didn't happen in the same time though! Those were the mosquito bites she accumulated since June I guess.

Anwyway, just a few minutes of staying downstairs, when I carried her, Joshua's niece screamed and was shocked with the red marks  Maco got from the mosquito bites! And it was so many! We were all shocked actually! We didn't know what happened that she got that much mosquito bites! My poor baby :(

[caption id="attachment_668" align="aligncenter" width="529"] :( :( :([/caption]

I was not sure if those were mosquito bites really, because they were big red bumpy marks and they let her seat on the sofa downstairs also, which I do not really let her because our dog, Max, usually lays there. I'm maarte like that. Heehee. So I thought it was from the dog. I was annoyed that that happened because first, she's a girl and it's not nice to have peklat on your legs, also, she won't be able to wear shorts now, and her patakawawa naman! Lastly, kawawa naman my little girl as I can see that she's irritated by it. :( She would scratch her legs on the chair if she's seated so that means that it's really itchy, and there's wound from her scratching her legs! Ugh

Good thing during her 7th/8th month checkup, we asked her pedia what should we put  on her skin in case of mosquito bites because as I've said, she already have a couple before. He prescribed us this ointment Hydrocortisone to lessen visibility of the bruise, so that's what we have been putting on her bites and some sunflower oil I got from Human Nature. This is what I do in the morning, after her bath and before sleeping; lather sunflower oil all over her legs and put on hydrocortisone cream just on the wounded part. I think the sunflower oil helped to lighten the scars. I like it!



So from now on, she can never go out our bedroom without wearing a pajama! And some mosquito repellent! We can't go out without her having some mosquito repellent! Lalo na ngayon, uso  pa naman ang dengue! Mosquito repellents are a must! I just hoped I used it on her sooner. :(

This is her legs now! Still have some scarring of course, but it's better now! Yey!

Maco's 9th Month



Can't believe how fast it is that my little munchkin's now 9 months! It seems like I just gave birth the other day! Lol. Seriously though, I know I've said it more than a couple of times but let me say it again, TIME FLIES! Time flies so fast! Why u don't stop and have coffee for a while, TIME! Seriously. Relax. Hahaha!

[caption id="attachment_658" align="aligncenter" width="529"]"Ma, I just woke up and what is this?" "Ma, I just woke up and what is this?"[/caption]

So what we did on her 9th month? You guessed it. We celebrated it of course! We didn't have spaghetti this time though, we had roasted chicken and some cake. Maco had some cake as well! Little munchkin loves to eat already! Yes. Little munchkin loves to munch! She even wanted rice over her mashed fruits/veggies!

[caption id="attachment_660" align="aligncenter" width="529"] "Oh so I need to hold this?"[/caption]

She can also stand up by herself in her crib and even on our wall. Haha! She also sits and crawls fast nowt! She can never be left alone and awake on the bed from now on. Or she would end up crying on the floor! She can also say "Mama" and "Papa", though she was able to say it before during her 6th/7th month, but now I think or we think she knows what it means already. She would look at me and say "Mama" and to her father and say "papa", it's really cute and really melts my heart whenever I hear her say that! We would also often hear her say "aba" or "babababa", when she wanted something, and she would look like as if she was reaching for that something she wanted. She also doesn't cry much now, it was always an arte kind of cry if she wanted to be carried or if she's sleepy or if she wanted something. But if she's really sleepy, she does cry! Most especially when I'm not around! Because she wanted milk. Oh yes, she's still breastfed until now! Yey! :)

[caption id="attachment_661" align="aligncenter" width="529"]"Better now?" "Better now?"[/caption]

She's also in this phase usually called "nangingilala", I don't know the proper english term for it so. She would often cry if carried by someone she doesn't know or she doesn't see often, but if that someone is in a car or looks like he/she is going somewhere like mall, aba eh hindi na kami pinapansin! Hahaha! But this usually happens if she's in a good mood i.e NOT hungry, because if she's hungry, she's hungry and she doesn't care about anything else! Haha!

So, I guess that's what's up with my Little Munchkin as a 9 month old baby!

Rosanjin Japanese Restaurant

I was invited to taste some of Rosanjin's menu last Saturday at SM Megamall, I'm a fan of Japanese food so I have to go there and taste it myself! Even if unluckiness is with me that day! :-( Will talk about it on another post! Let's be positive on this post because we're talking about food, and it's Japanese food!



When I entered the restaurant, what caught my attention was there Japanese umbrellas which were hanged on the ceiling as a decor. It's nice on how they did it! It has some Sakura flowers on the left wall and just a plain wall on the other. I would suggest to have there utensils or where they put their utensils hidden though, because it's not nice to see the plastic drawers just on the hallway, seen by everyone who would pass by to go to the restroom. But, we're not going to talk about it's interiors here though, we're going to talk about their food, and that's what I love about this restaurant!



We were served with Tofu Salad and Kani Salad for appetizer. I love their tofu, it isn't like the ones we buy at wet markets, there's something different about it, and that is something to be liked about!

[caption id="attachment_636" align="aligncenter" width="640"] They're cooking in front of us! I'M SO SORRY THESE WERE THE ONLY PHOTOS I WAS ABLE TO SAVE HUHUHU :( BUT CAN YOU SEE THE SHRIMP'S TAIL OVER THERE? SHRIMP'S SAYING HI![/caption]

For our main course, we were served with Australian Rib Steak cooked Tobanyaki Style, Chicken Cheeseyaki, Salmon Butteryaki, Sukiyaki Kaminabe, Seafood Kaminabe, and Shrimp Kaminabe.

I tasted them all and I loved it! The first dish that I tasted among all is the Sukiyaki Kaminabe, and I must say, it's beef is so tender! And it's soup is really tasty! I think with this dish, you could say "sabaw pa lang, ulam na", I know most of you would think I'm exaggerating but I assure you, I am not! It really is that tasty! Ugh just thinking about it makes me want to have it right now. Honestly, I didn't bother much about the other dishes because this one is the bomb!

Australian Rib Steak is second for me, because of it's meat. It's so tender as well! I love their meat! It's worth it's price, I assure you. It was served with some dips/sauces on the side, but I think you wouldn't need those already because of it's tasty meat. It's cooked Tobanyaki Style, Tobanyaki, if you don't know the meaning like myself, is the art of cooking in Japan. It uses something like a sizzling plate (I'm sorry I'm not familiar with such) which is called "Toban". It was served raw and it was cooked in from of us! Most of the dishes were served raw actually.

I also like the Seafood Kaminabe because it's soup is tasty as well! It's a bit spicy though! And I like spicy food! This one's not that much spicy though, but you know it's there. Lol. If you don't like spicy food like I do, I think it wouldn't hurt trying this one! I didn't actually tasted it's spiciness until a couple of sip of it's soup.

Apparently though I don't have photos of the said dishes because I'm a bad blogger. Huhuhu. No seriously though, my phone acted up that time, I'm definitely sure I took photos of all the food but when I checked my phone at home, it was gone! My phone drained so I was not able to check it right away! Ugh. Thinking about it makes me cringe!!! :-( Hate it. Also, I even borrowed a good cam from my sister-in-law but to my dismay, when I tried it on the way there, it didn't work. WTF. I should've brought my oldie digicam with me! Ughhhhh. On the side note, I want to thank my fellow blogger who let me borrow her powerbank so I could call my husband! :)

I promise if I'll be able to get back there, I'll take decent photos! HUHUHU

What's up, Momma?

[caption id="attachment_628" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Little Maco thinking about life... Hahaha[/caption]

So, what's up with me?

I've been busy with my online business, Little Maco, *ehem shameless plug lol* hence I was not able to blog very often these past few days. I even forgot my usual 8 month "photoshoot" with my little munchkin! Glad I was able to do it before she turned 9 months! Heehee

[caption id="attachment_627" align="aligncenter" width="640"]The Awesome Three The Awesome Three. photo taken at Timezone hehe[/caption]

I'm also trying to get back on reading books, if ever there was a reader in me before. Lol! Good thing though, I might tell you, I have finished a book this time! I have finished it from the first page to the last! I don't usually finish most of the books I have read before, there would be a couple of pages left and then I would not read it again because I have predicted what would happen next. Yes, I am that lame. Heehee

[caption id="attachment_626" align="aligncenter" width="640"]Maco eating fries on her own! Maco eating fries on her own![/caption]

Another thing that prohibits me from blogging regularly is this effin laptop of mine! Ugh. It's too slow, I can't handle it. You see I'm not the most patient person in the world. I think I'm more patient now though because of my little munchkin, but this laptop - I CANNOT. Lol! But of course I'm thankful that I can still blog through this one! We've been together for I guess almost 6 years already! It's been that long! Wow! Hopefully, there would be a generous company out there who would give me a laptop! Or just a random rich stranger who happens to be reading this and would love to give me one, please, be my guest! Lol! Wishful thinking at its finest that is! Hahaha
