Last December 28 , Friday. I was on leave due to flu. For the longest time, ngayon lang ule ako nagkaganito! super lagnat!. Thanks to my mother-in-law who visited me in the apartment and give me some medications. I have my rest all day alone while my hubby is at work. Its actually his last day at work so he have to finish his turn overs.
At afternoon, I was feeling okay though I still have aching throat. I remember na birthday pala ng twins kong pamangkin and inaanak namin ni Dennis. I even texted my mother-in-law na okay na ko and I'll just drop by my nephews' birthday party in Fairview.
My cousin, Minneli, the mother of the twins has noted in the invitations that the party will start at around 7pm. Ngayon lang ako aatend ng children's party na dinner time ha. At around 7pm, sila pa lang ang dumating together with my tita and 2 other pamangkins. Its past 7 already but still most of the guests haven't arrived yet.
At around 8pm, the party finally started. The emcee is very entertaining and funny at the same time. He even noticed that most of the guests are adults.. kaming magpipinsan & kabarkada nun pinsan ko..hehe! E may ilang bata kakagising pa lang..kaya yun wala sa mood mag games. Kaka tuwa pano kahit sa longest greeting game, isa lang ang may pinakamahabang greeting... Then the adults also play, with sort of obstacle churvah..and kasama ko dun. I actually forgot that I just have a flu..hehe! And we won.. we got a mini doll as a gift. Then after it the kids have the bring me game and then the longest number of coin. at pagkatapos pinaagaw lahat ng coins. Then finally the moment has finally arrived, yun FOOD..hehe! I am very hungry kasi naman I don't have my mirienda..We have chicken and spaghetti, burger , fries and sundae..mmm! syempre I have my pasalubong to Dennis. Then after eating the mascots has danced in the tune of "itak tak mo!" I'm really bursting in laughter seeing Grimace dancing..tapos may showdown pa with Ronald McDonald..The party ended at past 9..something different talaga...

Well, at last I'm done with my very first layout. Kakatuwa and masaya ang feeling. I'm kinda tired this past few days, kaya kahit anong gawa ko parang di nag work sa colors..shape..in short I don't really have the idea.
Kaya kagabi, kahit sleepy nako..salamat sa kape (galing kasi kami sa lamay ni hubby) parang nabuhayan ako ng magandang idea..hehe! As a newbie, I'm too afraid talaga to try new ideas..baka di magwork out dun sa plano ko. Most of the materials that I used in this are from National Bookstore...I even decided na magcut- out from the papers that I bought. Actually pang layout nga yun ginamit ko..so I sacrifice it..
These are our pre-nuptial pictures taken @ Oasis Manila. I enjoy rolling in their grass..laying there around..haha! Fun talaga. Ilan lang to sa magandang kuha ng aming photographer (Jason De Guzman of Imagine Nation). I really love our pics!
How did I do it?
- I used 12x12 paper for lay out..(National bookstore)
- I have some of our pics developed at Photoline in Galleria. All of it are 4R, scratchproof
- buttons ..stickers (SWEET..Bees) also from National Bookstore
- Flowers are cut-outs from one of my 12x12 paper layout from NBS also..
- I printed the word "Love"..I downloaded the font from www.scrapvillage.com (nice site..my favorite!)

I must admit, I never know where to start, what to buy, what is really needed! once I stepped the shops. Last monday, after office, I decided to look around for some scrapbooking stuffs in SM Megamall. Grabe, di ko malaman anong bibilihin ko, if only I could buy what I can see..hehe! Kaso I got a limited budget, and for the first place nga kala ko titingin lang ako..
I visited the stationery section of the SM Department Store where I bought a pack paper. Actually it a 12x12 papers (Craft Express) and it is on sale. I bought it for P130..sale siya kasi 12 pcs of paper yun.Then I dropped by SMILES (near toy kingdom). They sell pretty stuffs..medyo mahal yung items coz I noticed that all of it are imported and they are very lovely. I bought again some papers which costs P30. Magaganda lahat nun designs.. And near SMILES is Craft World. And there I bought the Memory Glue, ribbons and the acid free pen.
I was so happy kahit onti pa lang gamit ko. I'm still having some brainstorming of what to do. Mahirap pala pag andyan na sa harap mo ang gamit. Daming ideas, pero I'm not quite sure if my ideas will work. I wanted it to be pretty. Today, while we are fixing some stuffs in our house (my hubby's) we found some old items..tinabi ko na.. his mom even gave me some ribbons, add ko daw sa gamit ko sa scrapbooking..(how sweet diba?)

The hottest is brewing to the max!
Kaaliw! And daming nagcoffee last week. Why? Its Starbucks 10th year anniversary. And their treat? Most of us are aware of the latest craze..its the Christmas Tradition..filling up the 24 cups w/ stickers for every purchase of their hot & cold drinks. Since they are celebrating their anniv..at around 12:30 to 2pm & 8pm to 9:30pm, every drink is equivalent to 2 stickers..haha! Para sa mga nag-aasam ng planner..this is the great time. Kaya ako last Friday, nakigulo lang sa pila at umorder ng hot peppermint mocha (masarap!!). Naku, not really sure if I can fill mine. But I'm a coffee addict..pero any coffee will do..ganun ka-addict. Pero for me Starbucks coffee is the best.
Gusto ko lang i-share di lang ang kwentong maraming sticker, maraming tao at masarap na KAPE, kundi ang idea na naisip ko habang nakapila..kundi para sa bago kong kinahuhumalingan..ang SCRAPBOOKING.. Pareho kami ni hubby na coffee lover (as in!!.. sobra..to the max!!) kaya I'm thinking of a theme na "mala starbucks themed". Parang connected kasi sa amin..masarap..maganda..masaya!!
What do you think?? Coffeerotic!!

Last Saturday, it was a very busy day Why? Well, my hubby's family house (where we are currently residing) will be undergoing a major rennovation. Pretty tiring, since we have to pack up all stuffs..as in! I've realized they got lots of things..which are no longer used. I even asked Dennis to dispose some of his stuffs..kaya pala sobrang cluttered sa room..His CPA Review books!Sirang payong!Scratches (from his previous jobs)..kamusta naman. Me, I just simply packed my stuffs. Kasi some of my stuffs are still at our house. Kaya sisiw lang☺ His parents temporarily rented a small place nearby their house. Mga 2 tumbling lang..hehe! Its a cute apartment..a new one..ideal nga lang para sa bagong kasal.
Going back..Dennis and I was in-charge since his mom has to attend an activity in the church. His mom is the Head of Lectors in their Parish. Kaya busy sobra. No problem with us since we managed to box all our stuffs.
I have an idea that Dennis will be picking up his new baby this weekend. Hmmphh! Its his motorcycle which, I never really like. He was the one who picked it up. I notice that he is very happy at nasa mood. ITs a blue Yamaha Sniper. I must admit its pretty though I am not a person who loves motorcycle. Ang hirap kasi nun, accident prone☺ But what can I do? Kaya instead of having an arguement..no comment na lang.
Kami muna ang nagstay sa apartment. Ganda pala ng feeling pag kayo lang (di naman sa ayaw ko sa in-laws..their nice) kaso mas sweet..haha! Whether I like it or not, sumakay ako sa bagong "baby" nya. Kasi may mga gamit pa kami na dapat kunin. His baby is useful na din sa paglilipat..
PS: I'm ranting for some occasions I missed:
> Party 101 @ Rustan's Essences / Shangri-La..sayang!! madaming freebies..tinext pako ni Ms Grace, I even texted back na pupunta ko..hoping na makakapunta ko..
>SE-PS Xmas Party..I'm a new member! I really wanted to go.. my friend Maricel wanted to go pa naman din..sayang sayang!

I'm now hook into this hobby. Though I was not yet starting to work on my album. I'm a N@W member (newly wed forum in weddings@work), and I just ask if anybody knows the different shops for scrapbooking. I'm so happy to have responses..actually its more than of what I expected. Somebody even suggested to me to join the yahoo groups ..Scrabooks-Exchange and Pinoy Scrapbookers. And ayun yesterday din, my application was approved. I was able to recieve welcome notes from other members. And kakatuwa they are even inviting me to join their christmas party..kasi nandun din daw ang mga suppliers..I wish I could come to their gathering. Andun din daw yun magagaling talaga and masasagot daw lahat ng tanong ko..next level na talaga ito..
To my fellow scrappers thanks for welcoming me..Its really a pleasure to learn and experience scrapbooking☺

For the past 26 years, I have celebrated Christmas with my family in Lagro, where I grew up. And since 2004 , my boyfriend for 4 years (now my lifetime partner), Dennis, have been a part of my X'mas day. Whew! How fast time flies?
I just come to think that this is a different Christmas. Firstly , I'm married! I'm not shopping only for myself, my family and my "inaanaks" but also together with Dennis, I'm shopping also for his family and his inaanaks.. Secondly, A different place. we are planning to celebrate the Christmas eve at their house. Well, I decided for this one. Just to be fair, Dennis has spent his Christmas at our house. And I think maybe its time that I'll be the one to celebrate it in their house since we are married already. Good news, I'm planning to cook so I keep on searching for a hearty meal in the internet..hehe! Para naman special talaga. Then on the Christmas day, we'll just visit my family.
We are enjoying eachother's company. There are less fights..Less arguements..more patience..what more can I wish for?..mmmm..yeah i still have a simple wish to Dennis. I asked him if he'll buy me things for my newly found hobby courtesy of my dear friend, Maricel...I was so excited to make one for our wedding pics.. I'll post it here..can't hardly wait na..

Last Dec 1, 2007, Dennis and I was supposed to meet our good friend, Kuya John. FYI..Dennis wanted to buy a motorcycle (which I strongly disagreed). So just as not to have an arguement, I just let him have his dream motorcycle..yun nga lang the one that Kuya John told him was already sold. My hubby really did have a tantrum..hehe! He's too upset kasi he really likes the motorcycle.
So at around 2pm we left the house to have a shopping..of course, I chose to buy at Divisoria. Actually, I'm shopping for christmas gifts to our family and inaanaks. We have a ride with my brother-in-law, Byron and his girlfriend, Des. They gave us a ride up to Taft. Sobrang traffic! I can't believe it we spend 2 hours pagpunta!!! So finally at past 4pm we arrived in Binondo..haaayz!! Instead of heading to 168 Shopping mall, we go to another mall. This is the one that my officemate mentioned to me. Yup she's right, Meisic mall is less crowed and sells stuffs same with 168 mall.
I was so excited and eager to buy gifts for our family. Fab finds are the children's bags (in Dora, Sleeping Beauty, etc) for just P60.. I saw same stuffs in malls and it was priced at around P150.00. Undies for the little girls is P100 only for 5 pcs. Watches are sold at P90..if you want a box you'll just add up P40.00. I also saw shirts for ladies for only P50.00. Well, I have one for myself and I already wore it ..comfortable naman..infairness. I also bought bags for our moms..mura lang .. pramis! and polo shirts for P150 each. And I was also able to buy a firecracker..hehe! this is for my mom's store. The name of the item is Picolo..P50/box. Another fab find I got are the sleeping dress for the girls which I got for P75 only.
Grabe, nakakatuwa mamili sa Divi, though onti lang dala kong money, pero I managed na mabilihan lahat ng inaanaks. ...

How can I forget our favorite out-of-town destination? BAGUIO. We decided to go there last November 5. Well, I believe Benguet is under signal #1. Pero nothing can stop us..Its a chance na din kasi we are on leave and we have to enjoy it or else, we just waste our chance..our second honeymoon. As I've mentioned before, we have no defite plan of where we will celebrate our honeymoon. Its good to have the accomodation gifts. Tita Rona, Den's auntie, gave us a 2 nights free accomodation in Baguio Country Club. A really nice place though its far from the market and parks. Pero sulit kasi mura ang taxi and sowsyal! talaga. Most of the occupants are foreigners..and ibang pinoy na elite..hehe! gaya namin..just kidding.
On our first day, we went to our favorite tambayan..SM Baguio. Since hapon na kami nakadating dun na lang kami nakapunta. I was so amused of the mall, kasi naman walang aircon pero malamig pa din. And also one spot I like there are the terraces on each floors where you can see different locations..relaxing ang effect. On our second day, we planned of going to Burnham Park. We just stay there for some pictorials..as what we usually do. Medyo annoying ang weather, umuulan-ulan. Then after there we headed to Mine's View Park. Foggy kaya wala ganong view. . and again pictorial galore ule. We stroll around the changge and of course, I have my favorite na inihaw na mais..sobrang love ko yun. And again we go back to SM where we have our dinner and our favorite coffee..Starbucks
On Nov 7, our last day, we decided to buy pasalubongs. Tama ba ito at last minute ang pilian ..kaya medyo na late ang uwi namin. Super special ang Baguio samin. We get to reminisce our first and second stay there, pero memorable yun 3rd na punta namin coz we are officially and legally Mr.& Mrs Yu. Naks! We are looking forward to visit there, for it is such a nice place that we both love

I was so preoccupied with a newly found hobby..Well, as I browse my friend's multiply site. Maricel is a good friend of mine since highschool. I was so excited to text her, and even ask if she can teach me about scrapbooking. Yes, you heard it right! SCRAPBOOKING!!! I was so amazed of her works. Very pretty and unique. Dennis and I have lots of pictures in different events. I was wondering, that I can make some. And i knew I can do well. Something i can be proud of..
I'll be posting some if I started with it already. .

We are so busy in our wedding preps that we forgot where we'll have our honeymoon. I loved to have it our of the country talaga. But, with so much expenses, I thought na kahit next year na lang. Dennis suggested to have it out of town na lang..which is okay for me.
On our wedding day we received a free overnight accomodation in Makati Prime Towers. The place is good enough to stay. It has a sala, terrace, big windows in our room (perfect for sight seeing the entire makati!), with kitchen utensils. It is in fact a junior suite. We arrived at the location on October 29. In the afternoon, Dennis and I planned of strolling in Glorrieta. O diba, something different. We don't always stroll around Glorietta, and if ever we are there parang ang bilis ng oras kaya nagmamadali kaming umuwi. Kaya that day di kami nagmamadali coz we are staying within Makati. So happy coz that day i bought my 1st Havaianas..sale kasi..Before we go to the hotel..we bought 2 bottles of beer and other snacks..wala lang parang simple night out namin..pero kami lang talaga..hehe! We decided to stay for another day in our own expense. The room rate is P1,600.00. On Oct 30, we stay in the hotel the whole afternoon..we watched movies, we eat, we have picture taking, we sleep...and at 5 pm we went to Rockwell. This is the life talaga! We stroll around, pero stroll lang talaga. Then we hang out at Starbucks..pang 3 na starbucks na to..haha! sarap eh..
