Happy Birthday Baby…


One more godson
Dec 23rd, 2010 by niceyfemme

To add to the list of my godchildren.

Whoah! How many are they already?

Joy’s twins, Le Rose, Joman, Pinky’s son, Aira, Jobette’s son… Who else? Forgive me if I forgotten someone.

He is Jenny’s new born son Yvoh Gatmaitan who’s so cute I thought he was a girl. πŸ™‚

Hmmmn I’m still thinking of a gift. I want a personalized gift to give them, maybe one with engraving. Christening gifts engraving is a good idea don’t you think?

Babies are such blessings! They bring so much joy. πŸ™‚

Party Party!
Dec 19th, 2010 by niceyfemme

Wow. This is the time of the year with the most number of parties in this country. Christmas parties are happening numerous times a day, even weddings as this is a favorite month to tie the knot for most people (even I prefer December) and lots of babies are being born too! It is indeed a season to be jolly! So many reasons to be thankful.

In a day, there are two to three Christmas parties so good luck to those going. Please if you are going to drink then don’t drive and vice versa. Better be safe right?

And I have received the most unique baby shower invitations from two of my previous work mates. Great job guys. I’ll take note of that hehehe.. Have a safe “delivery party” you guys. πŸ™‚

Review: Which is the better Tuna Paella in Can?
Dec 15th, 2010 by niceyfemme

Their commercials intrigued me. Having an interest with anything that’s labeled healthy, I just had to try them myself. And I like paella. There’s one paella that I still remember though, the one we had in Boracay and I’m hoping one of these two will taste kind of similar to that.

The first tuna paella that came out in the market is the San Marino Tuna Paella which a popular couple celebrity in the commercial. I thought tuna paella is a great idea. So I bought two cans. I tried it and even though there was a lot of tuna in that can, the taste however didn’t suit my taste buds. I didn’t even finish the can as I only ate about a tablespoon.

Oysters: I didn’t know I’d love you
Dec 13th, 2010 by niceyfemme

And I blame Daddy for this. πŸ™‚

See I try to not “fall” for foods that are considered not healthy, like say butter and now, oysters. I try to program my mind to love the healthy stuff like veggies and whole wheat bread instead of white. But somehow, I’ve been finding myself craving for sin. πŸ˜‰

Oysters is one of my Dad’s favorite foods. I’ve always known this but since I didn’t grow up eating this, I had it programmed in my mind that I don’t like it. The last time he MADE ME try this, with all the juices, with the “you can’t say no, just do as I say” tone. Poor me. πŸ™‚ But then I found myself trying to open the shells myself. And been eating the left over oysters the whole day.

Bazaars are everywhere
Dec 11th, 2010 by niceyfemme

It’s almost Christmas now with only two more weeks to go and I’m savoring these days. This the season that I’ve been waiting for the whole year round. πŸ™‚

And comes with Christmas is gift giving (or is it something created and hyped by commercialism?) but we are now in hard times so we try our best to look for cheaper options for our shopping. It is pricier in malls so Divisoria and bazaars (tiangge) are preferred by most. It is way more crowded in Divisoria so most people prefer bazaars and they are everywhere!

I for one doesn’t do a lot of shopping. It actually stresses me out. I only buy when I need it and I really like it but I don’t go around waiting for something to catch my eye. This is why I like bazaars. There are so many new, unique and innovative things to see! So many food to try you don’t usually find in malls. Of course most if not all things there are local products and we cannot find the types of schlage hardware there because there are mostly food and gift stuffs there.

I wanted to go to the bazaars in World Trade Center like last year but didn’t get to go. Next time maybe. That’s where I bought the charcoal stove above. (EDIT: As of Aug.22,2011, I have since found a new obsession and this stove has been left Β in storage. It’s still new, used maybe a couple of times. Whoever wants to buy this, please leave a comment and I will sell this at a low price.)

One I find really interesting is the Mercato Centrale in The Fort. I am just drooling with all the photos I see online, it’s just that I’m not used to that area so I’m still thinking if I should go.

Kamote Que
Dec 9th, 2010 by niceyfemme

I love kamote or sweet potato, actually any starchy food is a favorite. Bad for the figure I know hehehhe…. So I love gabi or taro root in sinigang, potatoes in all forms, squash is a favorite too since I was a baby I think and this is one of those foods I wish isn’t too fattening because I could just eat them non stop.

I have bad self control when it comes to food and I realized that street foods are the most tempting to try! Ooh kwek kwek and isaw (grilled chicken intestines) and dugo (grilled blocks of solidified blood) I miss you. πŸ™ I don’t know maybe it’s because of the whole ambiance haha. I got real sick a few years ago because of this bad habit.

Fortunately, I had been given typhoid shot. Does this mean I can eat street foods and need not worry? Well that certainly is what I’ve been telling myself!

Pawned Babies
Dec 8th, 2010 by niceyfemme

I’ve been sleeping late this past days and I somehow decided to sleep a little early last night. But then the teaser for GMA 7’s Reporter’s Notebook was shown and the topic really caught my attention; it’s about pawned babies.

Whoah! I haven’t heard about this before and had no idea this was happening. My life having the softest spot for babies decided that I was going to watch that program even when it will be shown very late, actually way past midnight.

I have heard about all kinds of scams, from debt settlement scams to housing scams but not this one. Again, the reason why they do it is because of poverty, of hunger. They have no choice. They pawn the baby for only three thousand pesos Php 3000. One woman lost her baby when the person with whom she pawned her baby left and moved. Must be heartbreaking.

I don’t know; it may be illegal but I don’t mind helping them. I don’t mind taking care of a baby and helping them too. I know how it feels to be so helpless and even desperate. You will really consider the things you usually wouldn’t even think about out of desperation.
