Tita’s House
Apr 30th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Tita’s still relatively new abode is somewhere in the heart of the city so when we needed a place to stay at during a very busy week, we stayed there a couple of nights. Man, I like their house. It is an inspiration.

I love how close it is to so many eating places! That would be like heaven to me if I could live there permanently but could be so bad to my weight. I remember there’s a Ferino’s Bibingka there that I want to try. And a pancit malabon place I still have to try yet. Ahhh so many. Now I appreciate living in the city. It’s not so bad really.

Then I love some of their “stuff”. I love their really nice chandelier, their ceramic switch plate covers and the less than 10 minute drive to Quezon City hall. So close to malls and close to NLEX. Hmmmn in time, we’ll have our place piece of land in that area as well.

Little Corn Kernels Popping
Apr 30th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Is how it feels like for me when my baby kicks. Sometimes the baby’s movements will catch me off guard but it’s a welcome surprise. I love that feeling. Now it’s like I have a more concrete evidence that my baby is there, moving. Before I only get to see the baby move and feel assured that the baby’s ok during ultrasound. So far I had two. First and second times was to find the heartbeat. Ooh that tormented me but that’s over now and I’m happy. My baby’s so active even at this very young age.

In 3 weeks time, my husband and I will have another ultrasound, that one’s to finally know the gender of the baby. I can’t wait to know! Well I guess there’s no surprise there that I’m so eager since patience is not one of my strengths. πŸ™‚ So it’s a good thing we can finally know soon. To have to wait almost 5 more months to know my baby’s gender would be very hard on me. Hmmmn I really can’t wait to know. A boy or a girl? I need to know! πŸ™‚

Craving for Lumpiang Sariwa
Apr 23rd, 2012 by niceyfemme

Lumpiang Sariwa with veggies as filling is what I want so bad. With sweet potato, turnip, carrots, tofu, and more veggies wrapped in a soft crepe like wrapper with sweet and salty sauce. Before if I want to eat and if how I want it is not available then I’d just buy the ingredients and cook it myself. But given my current state (pregnant) I am still not myself yet. I just want to eat but I can’t cook. So how? I tried to trace the old vendor in our village who prepared my sought after lumpiang sariwa just like how I want it. Actually, I didn’t like lumpiang sariwa before I tasted one prepared by her. She used to sell in our village beside the Admin office but she’s not there anymore. Oohh I will not stop. She used to sell it at only 20php or 25php only. How I miss cheap and good food.

While I was torturing myself with this craving, another fire related news came on tv. The fire trucks wasn’t able to go in the street in front of the burning house because there’s a big hole in the middle of the street. Some renovations has been started but it was left unfinished for two weeks and then the fire happened. Only one fire hose was able to reach the house. Whew! Again, I couldn’t believe myself. My dear Philippines. πŸ™

Yey
Apr 22nd, 2012 by niceyfemme

So I have mentioned before just how hot it has been in the Philippines since it’s summer and how it made sleeping difficult for me. We finally took the plunge and bought an air conditioner and had it installed just now despite the fear in the back of my mind about the sky high electricity rates here. Now I realized something, my taste is leveling up. I mean with everything. If it’s with food then I want it prepared with the best ingredients and cook just after I order it… With music, I have to have the best as well like drawmer products… If it’s about sleeping then I must have the best factors to have a great sleep… I guess this is fine but the money that’s going in must increase as well… OOOhhh that got me thinking… Hard.

Finally Met Taylor Hanson!
Apr 20th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Almost 3 weeks ago, one of my dreams as a 13 year old girl has came true. I finally got to lay my eyes on Taylor Hanson, who is my first love. β™₯ It has been one of of those questions in my mind then, and I didn’t really know if it was ever going to happen, if I would ever see him in flesh and moving and singing. I can’t explain how I was feeling when I first saw him, disbelief and in awe I guess? Wow, it took 15 long years of waiting! Had I known in 1997 that I’d be able to meet them in 2012.. I honestly don’t know how I would feel. That’s longer than the years I have lived then!

So I brought my pregnant self to their cd signing and waited for hours just to make sure I have a nice seat. Haha this is only for Hanson, I’d never do this for other artists, I promise. Choosing what to wear was no easy feat as my belly is growing and I still want to feel pretty and not look like a whale… It’s Taylor Hanson for Pete’s sake!I imagined in my mind every little details of our first meeting and how I would be, but I never thought I’d be pregnant when it happens. Seriously, I can make my pick from nurses uniforms and wedding gowns and it wouldn’t make a difference, I am just another face in a crowd for them πŸ™ It’s alright, I know it’s the reality and they are not my reality either. Just a once in a blue moon fantasy to indulge myself in.

Pregnancy Cravings
Apr 20th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Is crazy! I can’t say what I like and what I can and cannot eat. It’s so hard. Forgive me for complaining but this is really difficult for me and to be honest, I feel like it has kicked me out of my comfort zone. See, food used to be my comfort zone. Now, I lost it. This pregnancy has made me feel like I have healthy trim side effects I am experiencing all day everyday since the moment I learned I am pregnant.

One of the thoughts that has helped me get through from day to another is the assurance given to me by my Mom and OB-Gyn, that the moment I pass through my first trimester, I’d feel much better and I’d be able to eat well to the point that I will have to stop myself. Hmmmn… I’m passed my first trimester and I feel much better but not when it comes to food. I have really bad food aversions and I have more of it than the foods I can eat. Did I mention that I still can’t cook? Whewww! This is the longest break I have from cooking.

I guess I just have to wait until things get better.

Pregnancy and Food
Apr 17th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Wow, I am back. It’s been a long hiatus. I don’t know, maybe it’s because I had a bout of not being able to eat that I had no energy for anything else, including writing in this blog. But now as I am already in my second trimester and feeling much, much better, I am back. I feel like I am 80% of my old self again.

So, pregnancy and food. It hasn’t been a walk in the park for me when it comes to food and eating ever since I learned I am pregnant. Since my 6th week, I started to have food aversions, and what’s worse it i can’t stand the food that I used to love. I even stayed in Singapore thinking this pregnancy would make me eat like a pig and what happened? I wasn’t able to stand any food, and I starved to the point that I was crying everyday because of hunger. And now that I feel much better, I can eat better but I still don’t like rice. I used to love rice all my life, until pregnancy happens. Now I just eat it because I have to.

Another thing is about the food that I was able to eat. I was only able to eat the stuff that I stayed away from before. Like pork and beef, and lots of sweet stuff. It’s just the opposite of myself. Also, now I’m craving for the things I wasn’t particularly fond of, like coffee. Now I want it, so much that I’m thinking of having my own. I can’t stop looking at starbucks coffee makers. But I can ony have decaf.

A big surprise to me is that I eat less now. I’m contented with just enough food and I even have to force myself to eat more whereas before I constantly have to stop myself from eating waayyy too much. I guess it’s a good thing as I don’t want to be as big as Jessica Simpson. We are about the same height so I can’t imagine if I get as big as her. Plus I don’t have all her money to help me get back to my pre-pregnancy shape, so better be careful Niceyfemme.

I Can Cook An Egg
Apr 17th, 2012 by niceyfemme

In the porch. It’s that hot right now in the Philippines. Whewww! It’s summer time here and I never liked summer time, except for when I was still in school because that meant no classes for me. I stayed indoors though. I’m so not the type who likes burning my skin under the sun. And no, it’s not because I don’t want to tan. (Most Asians like their skin fair, while I am contented with the color I have, so no whitening creams and lotions for me.)

Again, it’s so hot that I can only go out under the sun maximum of a minute. You can walk outside and feel your head and it gets so hot way too fast. And I’m pregnant so I feel even hotter than most non-pregnant people.

So even if I didn’t want to buy an air conditioner because electricity cost here in the Philippines is insane, Mommy and I went ahead and bought one. It’s going to be delivered and installed this weekend. I have no choice! I can’t sleep anymore as I’m sweating like a pig and I get headaches all day long, even if I am home all the time. A pregnant lady needs her good night (and afternoon) sleep you know. πŸ™‚

We are blessed to be living in a house with a high ceiling that lets the air circulate, so I can’t imagine those families who live in a house with low ceiling s and specially those who doesn’t have ceilings at all. Well what can I say, we have to survive.

So these past days have been about researching with air conditioner (AC) brand is good, is efficient and will not give me a headache. I’ve been looking at inverter AC’s so we won’t get a heart attack upon receiving the electricity bill. So it’s been about brands, horse powers compressors, wattage that I’ve been reading about way to much. (which reminds me I have to buy compression springs asap!) We bough a 1 HP inverter wall mounted split type AC. Β Just a helpful tip, it’s alright to listen to the sales person but you also have to do your own reading. Remember, they are there to sell, so they’ll tell you whatever it is you want to hear.

So I hope I don’t regret this purchase, that’s the reason I do so much reading and research, I don’t want to regret any purchase I make. I feel like it’s burning money and I’d hate seeing the thing for weeks. So yeah, I hope I made a great choice.
