My Life As A New Mom
Nov 20th, 2012 by niceyfemme

I don’t know where to begin. The moment I gave birth my life has changed forever. This little baby daughter took over control of my life and everyone in my family. She sleeps whenever she wants and we also only get to sleep when she is haha.. So far it has been wonderful anf very challenging to me physically and emotionally. I want to give her the best I can so I decided on breastfeeding years before I got pregnant then breastfeeding kicked my butt I flew to the wall and got knocked out crying.It has been hard and yet I still continue with all these things with a happy heart. Motherhood has been a blessing and a dream come true for me. I always prayed to be a mother and have a baby and He finally answered what my heart desires.I now have a beautiful and somewhat funny daughter who always makes me laugh. She’s the apple of my family’s eyes. Yes we are exhausted but we’re sooo happy!

My baby’s coming out VERY soon
Sep 21st, 2012 by niceyfemme

My I can’t wait. I have been dreaming about having a baby the last fifteen years and it’s finally coming true anytime now.It is overwhelming me to be honest specially since I thought it isn’t even possible for me as I have PCOS. Now I am just waiting for labor to begin. I can’t say I am excited for the labor itself since everybody knows it’s going to be painful but I am excited to the fact that I will soon going to meet and hold my baby in my arms. Just thinking about it makes me cry.

Now I can’t say that I am scared or not scared of labor. I guess my attitude about it is that I have no choice but to go through it anyway so why fret over it? And I have already discussed the use of epidural with my OB and we agreed that by 3-4 cms and when I’m already in active labor then they will allow me to have the epidural. I am just concerned about the pain leading to that 3-4 cms. I might need a dragonfly round silk zafu to use as I meditate through pain. Of course I am going to need all the help I could get since my pain threshold is at ZERO. And did I already mentioned here that I’m not fond of needles as well? This is how much I want to have a baby that I would go through something as scary as this to have one.

Can’t wait to meet you little Joleighta! ♥♥♥

Finally the sun is shining
Aug 10th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Whoah after almost two weeks of strong rains and floods (thank God we were safe from floods in our village), the sun finally made it’s awaited appearance today.

I am so grateful that we were spared. We actually had it easy. No floods, and we had electricity. The television was on the whole day for news and my heart felt a constant pinch every time I see people suffering. They really had it hard. People in the roofs of their houses because the whole first level was already submerged in water, people needing food, and people in evacuation centers squeezing their bodies to be sure they are safe.  Some billionaire can give them TAG Heuer watches and they’d thank you just as much as if you give them a plate of rice.

Pregnancy Craving: Pancakes with Chicken Sausages
Jul 27th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Recently I’ve been finding myself staying away from plain rice. I am ok with fried rice though. And I’ve been cooking my pancakes pretty frequently like 3-4 times this week.

I’ve been trying to cook my pancakes like how I used to make them in Singapore, I made it perfect even without a recipe, just putting in ingredients by feel, because I made it almost everyday because our housemate’s son Xavian liked it very much. I haven’t been 100% successful at replicating it but I am close.

And now I like my pancakes with butter (of course!), maple syrup and chicken sausages. It’s a really nice combination. I eat this with a glass of my Anmum chocolate flavored milk with lots of ice and eat this in one of our computer carts or in front of the television. Haha I know I shouldn’t be eating in front of the tv but I can’t help it. 🙂 In these days when I find it hard to find contentment in most of the food I eat, it’s a relief to have this. And soon I’ll have the perfect recipe of my pancakes and I’ll try to note it down this time.

Ilog Maria Honey Bee Farm in Silang, Cavite
Jun 23rd, 2012 by niceyfemme

Warning: Picture heavy post. 🙂

Months ago when I learned that I am finally pregnant I started to read about what I should do and what I should avoid. One of things I should do is stop my usual beauty and cleansing regimen as they may be harmful to the baby. So no more lotions, no more creams with vitamin A and I became careful even with the soaps that I was using. My skin became so dry it has never been that dry before. My husband Bee bought me an organic lotion but I didn’t like that. I was in Singapore during my first trimester and I saw a documentary about Palestinian soaps aka Nablus Soaps I think. It’s natural and no parabens but I felt it’s drying to my skin and it’s not cheap for something that small.

Good thing we passed by Ilog Maria Honey Bee Farm in Silang, Cavite last month when we went to Tagaytay but we didn’t have time to drop by. I finally get to drop by yesterday that’s after stalking their website for like a week.

Did I have a hard time finding the farm? Not really. I realized if you’re coming from Dasmariñas then it’s before the second Petron station from Robinson’s Dasmariñas and right after Monte Luce.

Then the narrow driveway started. Man was I glad I brought a car. I couldn’t imagine walking alone in that long and narrow ‘road’. If someone’s with me maybe I can. Read the rest of this entry »

Two Of My Most Favorite in The World
Feb 20th, 2012 by niceyfemme

I love this baby! She’s so happy and her laughter is contagious and just hearing her laugh like that makes me feel good. This dog touches my heart. To be honest, I’m seeing Bambi in this dog. I still miss Bambi up to this day and I know for the rest of my life I will still miss her, she will always going to be a part of it.

Johnny Air’s Bad Customer Service
Aug 20th, 2011 by niceyfemme

EDIT: AS of November 04, 2011, STILL NOTHING! Heard nothing from them and to be honest, I’m not expecting anything from them anymore. But never again will I bring business to them. 
Totally bad service is something I cannot take. But living in the Philippines makes you prone to this. I do not get why this is because Filipinos are naturally nice and hospitable people specially to those they do not know personally. What I cannot take even more are people who feel so mighty high that they do not know how to own up to their mistakes and say sorry. Just that, a simple sorry will work and then try to improve and correct such mistakes.
I am writing to whoever upper level management executive who can take some action with this situation I unfortunately had experienced again. If Johnny Valdes gets to read this, the better.
Let me tell you what happened. I ordered a carbon steel wok from Amazon second week of December 2009 and conversed with Analyn Diego. I just had a very simple instruction, that the wok be brought to your Buendia/Dian branch as I prefer to pick the package there. Then after a month I was informed that the package was already there and ready for pick up. When my father and I got there, they had no idea about my package. They looked around them then told me it’s not there. And they had no initiative to find my package. I was the one who told them to look in other branches as I knew then that Johnny Air has a branch in Megamall. That was the time they made a call and that’s when they informed me that it was in Salcedo Village branch. My only instruction, to send it to Buendia / Dian branch was neglected. We decided to just drive to Salcedo Village and when we got there we weren’t given any attention by the female clerk whom I believe is Christine I am not really sure now. So the very first encounter I had with Johnny Air then (January 2010) was terrible but I thought maybe it’s because they are new and SOP’s aren’t well established then. But I must be honest that I almost lost my temper with the horrible service I received with all three of your staff and of the package being lost, lack of initiative is unacceptable too. But i just let it go.
Filipino Accent Tutorial
Feb 28th, 2011 by niceyfemme

This guy made me laugh! He’s Michael Bustos and I found this video in Facebook when my cousin JR shared this.

Kind of true though. I still hear some old folks speak this way. You gotta love being a Filipino. 🙂

Cost of living
Feb 19th, 2011 by niceyfemme

Yesterday, I headed to the store to buy my face soap. I was shocked that it got more expensive now. Can you believe that it cost Php180 now when it was only Php140 before? Just to have a clean face, it costs me that much! But of course I have to stick to this skin care regimen I’ve been on since I was 16 or else I’d have break outs. No choice!

This got me thinking on a much broader scale, I wonder, how much would it cost for one person to survive and live? I read or heard somewhere that for a simple and low key family to raise one child decently, it would cost them Php 1,000,000 or 1 million. Yes that much.

Ok that made me re-think about my priorities. Being a responsible adult is scary. You think about every little detail, even things that are far ahead in the future. In this aspect, I envy those people who didn’t go to school and married and have kids young. Why? They have a simple life. Happy to just have something to eat. Happy with a Php 1 packet of junk food. They don’t worry about the time when they need to send their kids to school and how they will do it. They sleep so soundly at night while I, don’t have a good night’s sleep for a long time now, since I became an adult, because I worry too much. Now I kinda believe that the less you know, the less you asks questions, and the more you know about life, the more it scares you. Or maybe it’s just me.

Serves you right
Dec 7th, 2010 by niceyfemme

Oooh! I love the videos you get to watch in Facebook. This pumped up my morning.

I hate flirts and mistresses who have no sense of limitation and no respect for other people’s relationships. Whether married or in a long term relationship, you cannot just enter the picture whenever you feel like going in. At least wait for the relationship to officially end. (That doesn’t mean those flirts are off the hook for helping in breaking up the relationship.)

I believe that it is your husband/wife/partner who is more accountable for the cheating. In this case, he is the one who promised to love you and be faithful to you. So I guess at least 60% of the blame should go to him and 40% to the third party.

Is this in Market Market?

Oh I have always pictured myself doing this, just to let the feeling of betrayal go. But I can’t. I’m not made to do “public events” like this. While this is something I can’t do, I totally feel the wife for doing this. I’m with her. She’s just fighting for her marriage and those flirts should be put in their right places. I hate how rude they are. How about Assault Charges? I believe the mistress knows better to not file in this kind of case. It is her own embarrassment to be with a married man so she’s not going to make it public and continue putting herself into shame. They continue being with married men in hiding, as this is not something you tell the whole world you are in.

And to that husband; shame on you! Shame on you for cheating, for not having balls to just choose one woman to be with. Being with two or more women doesn’t make you more of a man or more good looking than you really are, it just makes you a gigantic a$$hole! Disgusting!

Flirts and mistresses are selfish people, this is something I’m sure of. Only thinks of themselves. I hate them. Burn in hell biatch!
