The Best Grandmom!

I know it’s not grandparent’s day that we will be celebrating for the month of May but instead a day for Moms! Oh yes! Our grandma is still a mom to her children, so I guess she deserves also to be given tribute during this day because she’s not just the best grandma we have but a mom also to her children. I and my cousins are planning to give gift baskets for grandma in this special occasion- baskets full of goodies, stuffs and of course LOVE! I know she will not just be happy but be surprised as well with these...

Is This Me?

Indeed, this is really me. I took this pic after shower just this morning, I just set it into 10seconds timer and with the help of Photoshop this was the result!

I am so blessed because being pregnant can be one of the most wondrous and magical adventure that you can ever experience. You will most likely feel love, patience and other emotions that bubble up within you.

Booming Business

Last month, hubby and I were invited for a business presentation and it’s kind of quite convincing. But since I will be nesting next month, we decided not to engage to be a member at this moment. Actually, I was so amazed of the author of the book that tells that when year 2000 reached booming business like supplements will rise. So true, everywhere you go you will hear different companies selling their best supplements in town. So what we did is we tried first their products and truly I can say that it’s really effective and cost efficient.

It's Been 2 Weeks

These are just one of the many medicines that I have to take in everyday..ggggrrrr...Aside from my prenatal vitamins (Folic Acid, Hemarrate FA and Calciumade), I need to have my Ventolin Expectorant for my cough, Nasathera for my colds plus I need to drink plenty of fluids that is why I preferred a lemon juice beside me. That pic above was taken during office hours last week. Too bad, until now the hassles for my cough and colds is still there. I even tried to nebulize myself just to experience relief, but still to no effect. :(

God help me to recover this situation that I'm into right now. I don't want to experience a pre-term delivery for my baby Joshua. Hope this will end so soon that I will be able to deliver him on the day intended for him.

Globe: First in Everything!

I have been a Globe user since then, from mobile to internet broadband. I believe on their saying that “Globe: Abot Mo ang Mundo”~as far as my experience is concern, wherever I go Globe is really within my reach. But not all the time I can say they are perfect, sometimes I encountered problems with them especially with my internet connection. Actually, I already signed up for an upgrade for my internet speed since there are 6 of us who are grabbing for a 1Mbp speed in our house. Too bad, I didn’t know that it was Globe who was the first carrier to launch 4G through our WiMax network in the Philippines but the good thing is that Cagayan de Oro is one of the cities covered with this. Now am planning to have it up to 4Mbps with their high speed broadband rollout. Hope to have better, faster, and more reliable broadband connections on our phone, laptops, PC this time.

But hey! Another good news is here:
Globe launches 4G mobile
First to roll out 4G mobile technology in Philippines
With their intentions to provide their subscribers for a higher speed broadband access with the added convenience of full mobility, they have come up to launch this commercial roll out of 4G mobile technology. But this time around, the covered sites are still limited to Metro Manila which includes Marikina, Quezon City, Makati, Pasay, Las Pinas, Taguig and the City of Manila. Don’t worry guys, by end of 2011, Globe expect to increase its 4G presence dramatically with continued expansion planned into 2012.

As the years go by, most of the people can’t live without internet connection that is why Globe pioneered this innovation just to give their customers a faster broadband in more places meeting the demands for a quality services.

Here's what you can do with the new 4G and HSPA+ (an Info):
  • HSPA+, or Evolved High-Speed Packet Access, is a 4G wireless, mobile, high speed broadband technology that allows for peak theoretical download speeds of up to 21 Mbps with upgradeability for 84Mbps.
  • With HSPA+ technology, subscribers will experience high peak rates, lower latency, improved “always-on experience”, better multimedia upload, high-speed web browsing, and faster streaming and downloads.
  • Under Globe HSPA+ network, subscribers are expected to enjoy browsing at an average speed of 4-6 Mbps with even faster peak speeds.
  • HSPA+ is the chosen mobile 4G standard for other carriers globally including AT&T and T-mobile in the US.
Now that 4G is available already, wherever I go ...I can do whatever I want to do! As a blogger faster internet connection is what I need most plus of course its accessibility. With this new technology it can help me a lot like updating things: blog about something on the spot, submit tasks on time, do social networkings etc and etc...I believe that 4G can truly meet my demands with a quality service. Truly, they are always first in everything!:)

YS: S'mores Chocolate Cake

This is one of my fave!
Moist chocolate cake with layers of heavenly marshmallow and grahams.
Topped with caramel and chocolate squares.

My father got this as his birthday cake surprise from my cousin Lala. Now that I'm preggy, I'm always craving for sweets like the cakes from Red Ribbon.

Then, what would be the next flavor that I would like to crave before giving birth?

Now give me some suggestions please! :)

Moment of LOVE

Last week, my daughter was brought with my parents for a family reunion. Since I'm not allowed to travel anymore because I'm about to give birth in weeks time, hubby and I were left at home. Too bad, the whole Saturday in our place were having a brownout so I asked hubby to go with me. Actually, we went to "D Morvie Suite" (a pension house good for transients). There we stayed for the whole day, and guess what? I really enjoyed their free wi-fi, cold rooms plus with their cable flat TV an affordable cost.
It was a day we called a moment of LOVE...since it's been a long time that we haven't have a quality time with each other. :)

Blessed by God!

I'm so blessed by God that after four years of having a natural birth control, He gave us another bundle of joy- a baby boy that made our family more perfect! I mean perfect in such a way that my eldest is a girl and now am conceiving a boy!

Actually, I just had my miscarriage last year and after a month, I got pregnant and now am waiting for my nesting last week of May of this year. At first, I thought my ObGynecologist would prescribed me for progesterone supplements because of my experience before. Thanks God I'm having a healthy pregnancy this time and we are all so excited for the new blessing to come out in four to six weeks time. Thank you Lord for the blessing!

She Made It!

Just last month, we received good news coming from the PRC that one of my cousins who took the Nursing Licensure Exam had made it. In other words, she is now a registered nurse and we thank God for it! After all the long and hard work during her studies, it was all worth it upon knowing the result.

Now, she’s having I.V. training (Intra-Venus) but after this, she will apply for work in one of the tertiary hospitals in our city. As part of her preparation, she’s currently canvassing for affordable medical scrubs and that buying scrubs online is a good opt for her. Besides the fact that we have a few scrub stores here in our city, time and effort plus the money will be saved if she’ll have to do it online.

Excited as she is to start for her first working experience so soon! Hope she will enjoy her chosen path as a Registered Nurse. Once again, Congratulations Mai for making it in just one take of your NLE!
We are so proud of you!

Shocking News

I was so shocked upon receiving the news from our relatives that our cousin was confined in the hospital the other night. I heard from his mother that he was just experiencing headache and that when they reached the hospital he already got a dilated pupils. A thorough examination was being done and thanks God there were no signs of brain tumor or any cerebral aneurysm that happened. His neurologist suspected that it is neuritis- an inflammation of the optic nerve. Still, we are waiting for his doc to advice them for another set of examination to be done. Anyway, hope and pray that everything will be all right and that he will have a fast recovery upon what he is experiencing now.

Another bad news that I read from the net...that a pregnant woman who is an epileptic was being given prescription by her doctor of this anti-convulsant named Topamax. Guess what this medicine can bring and effect to the child and bring a dangerous side effect: result in cleft lip or cleft palate – birth defects that occur when the lip or palate fails to completely fuse together. The defect can result in a small, notched lip or in extreme cases, an open groove that extends from the roof of the mouth to the nose. Well if you know someone who had the same experience with her, Topamax lawsuit is there to help you handle even the most complex products liability claims.

Space Saver

Not just my daughter who is so excited for our house construction couple of months from now but me as well. Why? because I wanted t have a working station wherein I can focus on my blogging career during night time. :) I considered having this kind of computer cabinet, a modern one yet so space saver~ perfectly designed for a limited space like our home.

Hope and pray that all these things will come into realization after giving birth. :)
