Quick Post Monday: "A Second Chance"

I just started this "quick post Monday" thing last week and I almost forgot about it! 

So, I want to talk about movies, A Second Chance specifically, yes, the most awaited John Lloyd-Bea movie. It just popped in my head the same time I remembered Quick Post Monday so I guess it's just fair. Lol! 
As we all know, the first movie, One More Chance, was a big hit. I, myself loved that movie! It was so real, the lines were perfect, and hello, it was a John Lloyd-Bea movie. And I guess one of the reasons it became a hit was- most people can relate to the movie! Heehee
So let's now go back to A Second Chance, at first I thought it was a joke, because why the hell would you destroy and make a sequel to an already perfect movie?! But, it's going to happen! No, they're not going to destroy and make a bad movie, well I we hope not! But, the expectations about this second sequel is high. For me, at least. I expect more of this movie, or maybe at least as good! I hope it …

Quick Post Monday: What's Wrong with the World, Mama?

Okay, so I am going to start this Quick Post Monday thingie that I thought just a few minutes ago. Yes, this isn't thought through and I'm sorry if I'm going to suck at this, but here we go.

Basically, I'm going to post anything and everything that I'm thinking at the moment, or I want to share my thoughts with. It may or may not be related to mom stuff. Okay, whatever. And it's just short. I'm not going to put this on draft and go back to it to check with grammar and everything. So maybe this is a Draft Post Monday, well whatever. So let's start!

I think we already know about what happened in Paris by now. It is so sad with what's happening around us, not just in Paris, but all over the world, especially in Syria. The innocent children and even babies who know nothing about this has lost their lives because of this inhumane activities. What's wrong with us, humans?

I'm afraid for my little girl and for every child of this generation in the c…

At this age, most people spend most of their time on the internet. I am guilty of that as well. But can we really avoid it if most of the things now-a-days can be seen/reached with just one click? I think not.
We can listen to music, watch videos, talk to our loved ones, even order our meal for the day, almost everything we can do on the internet. I think we can even do it all at the same time! Crazy isn't it?!

How I Put My Kulit Baby to Sleep

She's really makulit now-a-days it frustrates me sometimes. She wanted to touch everything, taste everything, reach for the hardest things to be able to reach, and so on. Well, she's a a curious baby, and I love it, but sometimes I just want to sit down and chill, you know. Haha!

At night, especially when she's about to go to bed, she's still very active, I don't know where she gets her energy. She crawls from the other end of the bed to the other, reach for the things on the top drawers, pull out her baby wipes and put it in her mouth. Just a typical growing baby.

So what do I do to put her to sleep?

First, I let her play.
And then I clean her using some warm water and towelette.
Change her clothes and nappies.
Turn off the lights and nurse her.
That's it.

No special anything. I let her play before bed to exhaust her. And then I give her warm sponge bath from head to toeandchange her clothes to feel relaxed and presko. And when I turn off the lights to nurs…

Maco's Active Fun Adventure

Two weeks ago, my sister-in-law, her kids, Maco and myself went to Active Fun BGC to have some fun! *wink
I was too excited I bathe Maco and myself real early. Heehee.

I've been to Active Fun BGC before and I liked it. Though I was not able to go inside the 'playground' but I find it quite big. Fast forward to the day I was able to get inside the 'playground', I must say it was pretty huge. We only got the 30-mins pass and I think only 10-15 mins passed and I was tired already. But it was really fun! My little munchkin, especially my niece and nephew enjoyed it!

Maco's First Trick or Treat

Since we weren't able to attend the Halloween Spooktacular event at Active Fun BGC, I tried to find halloween parties for my little girl that's free or not that expensive but I didn't find any. Luckily though they have an annual Halloween Trick or Treat at my sister-in-law, Ate Jac's, place. So yey!!!

Side Story: The day before the Trick or Treat at my SIL's place we went to Active Fun and there I saw the High Street's Halloween Party poster which will happen the next day, it's free to go trick or treating but to get loot bags and be in the program, you have to have a minimum purchase worth Php 1,500. So what about no. Besides we'll be going to my SIL's the same day as High Street's Halloween Party! 

The 31st came and I thought I don't want to use the fairy costume she was supposed to use at Spooktacular so instead, I made her a 'ghost' costume! I searched for pegs online and it was pretty easy to do so why not! All I needed was an o…

Maco and some Dippin' Dots

I've known Dippin' Dots since I was a kid and I really liked it, though when I grew up and learn more about money, I thought it was kind of expensive for an ice cream. So I didn't bother to get one until I haven't seen them in most malls already or I just didn't care much about it that time. Heehee

After a few years of not caring about Dippin' Dots and craving for it, it's back! Or was it ever gone?! I'm not really sure! But it is good that they're back! Isn't it?! Ah childhood memories... :) I remember having my first Dippin' Dots in Sta. Lucia Grand Mall in Antipolo, tasting almost every flavor they have. They used to have it back then, you could taste their ice cream first to know which one to buy, not sure if they still do that now. And I remember that what I always get was the 'bubblegum' flavor. It was my favorite back then!

A week ago when my husband's niece and nephew came from the grocery and they showed us a packed Dip…

Maco's 10th Month

Okay I know how long it has been since the 13th, but... Okay, I'm sorry. Heehee

It's been too long I almost forgot what we did that day! Oops! I don't know why but since I gave birth to our little munchkin, I've  become forgetful of so many things it's annoying. I read somewhere though that it's just normal, so kebs.

Let's talk about how Maco is now that she's 10 months! Well she's getting more and more kulit and ingay, my patience is getting tested! I'm not really a patient person, but I'm trying to be one! She also wants to walk all the time, which is a good thing so she can practice! But she's a bit scaredy cat she can't walk without holding anyone or anything, even when she could stand on her own already. But as what I always say, it's okay, we're not in a hurry, she could walk on her own if she's ready. With food, she's not very picky, the other day I gave her ampalaya! Yey! Hopefully she would still like eating…

Hand-Foot-and-Mouth Disease on Babies

Hand-foot-and-mouth disease is an illness that causes sores in or on the mouth and on the hands, feet, and sometimes the buttocks and legs. The sores may be painful. The illness usually doesn't last more than a week or so. Hand-foot-and-mouth disease is common in children but can also occur in adults. It can occur at any time of year but is most common in the summer and fall. (Source:

My little munchkin didn't have fever nor lost her appetite days prior the rashes showed up so we were actually surprised when we found out that she has hand-foot-and-mouth disease. We're not 100% sure how she got it, but her cousin has it, so maybe that's where it came from. 

I noticed that she has rashes on her butt area while I was changing her diapers and thought that it was just normal rashes babies usually get from diapers. So I thought…
