Father's Day 2008

This is a belated Father's Day post. On this special day, Jarred and Cailie gave their Dad a greeting card that they wrote themselves (Kuya helped his baby sister, of course!). It gave me such joy and pride to see their labor of love. I think hubby was teary-eyed when he saw this.

Early this year, Jarred didn't even know how to hold a pen properly but in a matter of a few months he was able to learn fast and he continues to improve everyday. His Dad and I are so proud of him.
Cailie of course, did her own thing by making "pa-cute" faces at her Dad and showering his face with kisses.

We celebrated the day by having a buffet lunch at Mom's Buffet Dining Place. It was just a bummer that there was a power interruption in that area that time. As you can see, we were sweating all over. But what can I say? The food was Yum-O!

The rest of the day we had a DVD marathon date with IronMan, 21 and Fool's Gold.

Hubby is such a great father. My children are so lucky to have him...I am very fortunate that he is my partner in parenting. We complement each other in so many ways. Words are not enough to thank him for all the love, hardwork and joy he's given to our family.

Happy Father's Day GA!

Cool Gadget: Keep your fruits fresh and crisp with BLUE


My kids love to eat fruits. My son is "banana boy" while my daughter is more adventurous and eats whatever fruit is served to her. In a tropical country like the Philippines, it's always a challenge in one's household how to keep food fresh (especially fruits and vegetables).

Check out this cool gadget that supposedly can keep fruits fresher and crisper longer. Aside from functionality, don't you think it also adds a great look to your kitchen? Hmmm...I just wonder how much it is and how much electricity it consumes (can't help considering budget concerns).

Preschool Chronicles: Chapter 1 - Jarred Andrei goes to Kindergarten 1


Last Tuesday, June 10, my son officially became a school boy. Hubby says this is the start of his life outside the home. Pretty soon he'd be spending less and less hours at home and more time in school or with friends. The impact of this reality is slowly sinking in...painfully sinking in. My baby boy is now a little boy, ready to face his little world.

I'm confident he'll be able to manage Kinder 1 using everything we taught him at home. I'm looking forward to learning Chinese from him (he goes to a school that teaches Chinese subjects too).

{Sigh}...my boy's all grown up...
