Active Fun in Bonifacio High Street, Taguig
Apr 1st, 2015 by niceyfemme

Brought Joleigh to Active Fun so she can channel her endless energy in play with other kids. For someone who doesn’t live close to the area, I found it quite a challenge to find the place. It did help that I used google maps for me to have an idea where it is with St. Luke’s Global as my base point.

After going around a few times on the building I still couldn’t find the parking area. Turned out they don’t have their own parking space I was told. We parked in the building where Dimensione is located and we had to walk to get to Active Fun. So we registered and off she went! Oh you have to bring socks don’t forget.

Kids aged 3 and below need to have a guardian with them inside. Needless to say I had my exercise by going up and down with her. Read the rest of this entry »

Happy Birthday Joleigh!
Mar 30th, 2014 by niceyfemme

Late post. But better than never posting this at all. 🙂

Time definitely flew way too fast! I now have a one year old! I distinctly remember when I was still writing posts about my desire to have a baby and secretly wishing for a girl, even though I kept telling myself that if I have a boy I’d be equally happy. No, God has been so nice to me, granting again my prayers to a T.

It has been a shame that I have not given this blog as much time as I used to like before I got pregnant.  And I could have used this blog to document my baby’s every day and every milestone but no I got so overwhelmed by pregnancy and motherhood and by my laziness. I always have chosen sleep over everything else. Man this new permanent job has made me soooo tired! And sooooooo happy!

Anak thank you for giving me the best year of my life . I’ve never felt so happy seeing someone smile, seeing someone take her first steps and even when I get sneezed at. I can’t wait for the coming days and years that I get to take care of you and love you. It has been a great privilege having you as my daughter and I am so proud and I fell so tall whenever you call me Mama.

Papa and I, together with Mommy and Daddy will do our very best to give you a muchbetter life than we had. All the opportunities in the world as well.  But most importantly I’d try my best to make you feel loved, that you always have me. That I support you no mztter what and with Mama you’ll never be judged. I love you Joleigh. I truly thank God everyday for giving me you?

PS. Thank you for loving Mama’s dede as much as you do. 🙂 I love it that you love them that much.

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 Daughter Joleigh
Oct 17th, 2012 by niceyfemme

World, meet my daughter, Joleigh. I am now a certified mother.

My husband with my daughter a few minutes after birth. 🙂 It was an easy delivery I can say. Well easier than I expected because I expected it to be really painful and a difficult process. It was hard and difficult but not the worst ever.

My life is more complete now. I’m just so happy. I’m still adjusting to life being a mother and yes it can get overwhelming at times but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  Thank you my dear Lord for always making my dreams come true. Every thing in my life is because of You. Thank you.

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! ♥♥♥

Shawarma Burger
Aug 12th, 2012 by niceyfemme

It was only a few weeks ago when I kind of had a minor obsession with my home made burgers. Well home made because I made the patties from scratch. I love how I have full control of every ingredient I put in there. Of course being pregnant right now I have to be wary of what I put in my mouth.

Then one day I run out of burger buns but I have all other ingredients like the beef pattie, cheese, tomatoes and cucumber. Then an idea came to mind… I miss chappati! I could use chappati in place of burger buns and I could easily make it at home as I always have flour on hand. I cut the patties into smaller cuts and assembled everything on top of the chappati. Then I realized it is kind of like shawarma. It is a shawarma but is also a burger. Haha I liked this very much. Especially after all the hunger I felt after I looked for the misplaced leather repair kits. I truly believe food tastes better the more hungry you are. Try it.

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.

Oh and it’s a GIRL!
Jul 26th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Yes. The God Almighty has answered so many of my prayers since last year. I prayed for a kind hearted man to marry and I did marry one. I couldn’t be happier with our marriage now. Then I prayed for a baby, any gender will do but I prefer to have a girl first. I have always imagined how I would dress her up and how she’ll look in her papa’s arms. Getting pregnant wasn’t easy for me as I have PCOS so I wasn’t even sure if pregnancy wass even possible. I know it is to some women with PCOS but not to all. So to say that I was happy when I saw those two lines would be an understatement. Then he blessed us with a girl too! Wow.

Let me introduce you guys to my baby girl. This is taken at my ultrasound when I was in my 5th month so she’s definitely bigger now. We’ll be able to meet her in more or less two months. I can’t wait.

Thank you my Lord for the life that I have. I will never get tired of thanking you all my life.

Pregnancy Craving: Sinigang na Baboy
Jul 25th, 2012 by niceyfemme

I feel like I’m naglilihi again. Certain cravings and aversions towards food I felt during my first trimester but that was much worse because I was always hungry but can’t eat. Just thinking about that phase of my pregnancy makes me a bit nervous as that was really difficult for me. Now I can eat… just very picky. It’s hard to find contentment in the food I eat. The usual favorites has let me down so many times. But sinigang na baboy has been good on me. That when I don’t know what to eat, I’ll have this. I have made a post about this dish before, the more complete Sinigang na Baboy year 2011. 🙂

No need to have all the ingredients, just the pork belly, taro root or gabi and kangkong or swamp cabbage and I’m happy na. Or maybe this is an act of desperation. 🙂

Sinigang for 2 pax.

I was forbidden to eat those veggies with too many seeds as that will worsen my fingers and joints pain. I know I should be eating Salmon Sinigang instead and I used to love that dish, but I just can’t stand the taste of salmon since I got pregnant. Read the rest of this entry »

Love for Hanson
Jul 14th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Last March, one of my teenage dreams finally came true. I got to meet Hanson (Taylor specially) in person! I even got shake their hands. Haha I know pathetic for those who aren’t fans but for fellow fans they would totally get me and how I must be feeling then. I dreamt about that moment for 15 years! Wow.

One thing that came back together with my love for them is the love for their music. Read the rest of this entry »
