Mother's Day Weekend

I'm disappointed that I didn't get to vote yesterday. I'm registered in my beloved hometown, Angeles City, but we didn't go home since hubby was not feeling well, and our Ate Jane has chickenpox. Hah. I had mine when I was a little, and so did hubby. Thankfully, Chase got vaccinated just recently with MMRV, which offers protection against measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella. But still on the side of caution, we try to keep her in her room. Well, anyhow, you get an idea on how my weekend went. It's spent mostly at home. ^_^


Few days before the Mother's Day, hubby gifted me Torta Delos Reyes, which is truly the Ultimate Sansrival ever. It's by The Aristocrat Bakeshop. Seriously delicious!  Gone in 24 hours! ;-D #MustTry #SugarRush
Friday, May 10, 2013 -- Kicking off our long weekend with a date night at Shangri-la Plaza Mall. The East Wing of the mall is partially opened. It houses Texas Roadhouse Grill. I only took a couple of photos since my phone was out of battery already. We had to eat very very fast since we had a movie to watch. 

Complimentary Dried Peanuts. 
My 7-yr old son ultimate favorite dish, Country-Style Burger Steak. It's nicer (although more pricey) than Holy Cow's. So we'll definitely go back for it.  Hubby ordered Flat Iron Steak,  while I got seafood pasta in marinara sauce ( I forgot the exact name in the Menu), and ordered Cowboy Chocolate Cake for dessert. 
And we finally saw Iron Man 3!!! Yay! Better late than sorry! 

Excited for Monsters University ^_^
Saturday, May 11, 2013 -- I was not feeling well! And hypochondria kicked in, oh well, so I had to stay at home in the morning. Until hubby threatened insisted to send me to the ER. I relaxed and told him that I'll give it a few more days. So we went to the mall! I was supposed to get my gift, a pair of FitFlop Due Ballerina Flats, but I'm still deliberating between Michael Kors and FitFlop ballet flats. So I'm delaying shopping for now. Anyhow, it's the thought that counts. Thank you Hon! ^_^

You ought to know that I'm addicted to supermarkets! Haha. I love to hoard! We went to Unimart, and finally appreciated how it still remains as one of the favorite shopper's destination. It has good product assortment and range! There's so much to see and to buy! And then we're off to SM Megamall...Ramen Time! ^_^ Also, instead of getting my gift, we bought Chase a basketball hoop.

Portable Basketball Hoop with Stand from Toy Kingdom Php 3000. 
Chase attended basketball clinics last time (will do a detailed post soon! ^_^), and since being a star good player runs in the family (Believe it or not, I was our High School MVP! ;-D). Naturally, we want Chase to love the game as well. Game on! Oh well, we have to make do with condo living. 

Remember that I was feeling hypochondriac sick, I needed a massage and ventosa. For mother's day, I had to stay at home too, since I had to delay my bath time. So it's Candy Crush and iBooks for me. I'm saving Korean Dramas for later. ^_^

Oh my goodness. Level 65 of Candy Crush is so so stressful! I  absolutely think that all the relaxation I got from my spa time was all gone! But after several tries, I did it! It's time to wait for the tickets! Haha! I got them! Thank you girlfriends! ^_^
I have yet to build my iBook Collections, since I'm still transitioning from physical to electronic books (see my book shelf here). Since I have an iTunes US account, I can actually download free iBooks like Always You (which is more than nice! ;-D). I'm curious with the City of Bones, which is the first book in the The Mortal Instruments series written by Cassandra Clare. But mostly because there's an upcoming movie of it starring Lily Collins. Also, I find the Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire interesting too. I'm reading the samples, and I might get the full books. 
Anyhow more about City of Bones, after reading some review from Goodreads, hmmm...so there's some controversy surrounding the author. Oh well, she's published, and there's a movie adaptation even, so it's either just love her or hate her. I have yet to decide! 

It was another long weekend to remember! My belated Mother's Day greetings to my fellow awesome moms...I hope you had a great one! Cheers! ^_^

Hi Claire, awww...thank you so much! I'm feeling better, thanks to that massage and to Oryspa Meditation Balm! ^_^ I really do hope I can do more posts! ;-D

Oh Oryspa Meditation Balm is really great! I was able to have a set of Oryspa products which I won in one of their giveaways. I had toothache and i was really crying because of the pain. After taking medication , the pain is lesser but i still don't feel so comfortable then I tried to apply the balm in my jaw down to my neck, gently massaging the area. After maybe 15 mins, i started to feel comfort & I fall to sleep then when I wake up the pain became even lesser...i even recommended Oryspa products to my friends...hmmm why not share my experience to Oryspa fan page? =)

About Me

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
