Feels so good to be BACK!

Standard

I missed blogging a lot. yup a whole lot of it. a few months ago i was advised to go on complete bed rest. you might be asking why, my husband and I are expecting our second bundle of joy!! we’re going to have a baby!! yup. I am currently on my 3rd trimester already. I’m expecting to have our baby girl sometime in july, and we are so excited. Yes! we are having a GIRL. My pregnancy hasn’t been easy though. I was put on bed rest a lot. It’s like every other month something goes wrong and I just had to rest. I miss going to our farm, going to the mall and all the awesome stuffs I used to do. Every pregnancy is different though, but all of it is worth the wait and the sacrifices that we had to make just to keep my baby and me safe. I had to drink some meds, increase my iron intake and all those stuffs. It even got to the point where I had to consume 3-4 liters of water EVERYDAY because my amniotic fluid level was below normal. Good thing the summer heat made me comply to drinking that much amount of water.

As of now, from my latest prenatal check up and ultrasound everything is ok for now. My baby girl is in cephalic position and is growing very strong! My vitals and weight is normal and no more morning sickness every after hour for me! YAY! I just have to maintain my diet and my vitamins. I am one excited mommy! A few more weeks is all it takes. a few more sacrifices then im gonna see my baby girl soon. I know everything is going to be worth the wait.

putting up my latest picture. Proud of being pregnant again. This picture was taken durinh our recent high school reunion. Will blog more soon!!

Lefty’s at CDO

Looking for the hottest chicken in town? Well no need to look much further. Lefty’s has the answer to all those craving moments for buffalo wings. Located at J.R. Borja extension beside Forth and Tay, Cagayan de Oro City. Last night me and my siblings wanted to eat out and we decided to try their wings and burgers over at Lefty’s. The place is so nice with all the color yellow everywhere makes it a warm place to stay. The place is simple but very cozy. The staff are great too.

View from the outside. Just a reminder though yiu may want to go there at an early hour because the parking is very hard to come by.

So this is what we ordered.

My husband ordered the 4 pcs chicken wings where you have to choose between classic buffalo, or the hotest chicken of all the lefty’s sauce. So i asked him how was it, he said he liked the tangy taste and the way the wings were cooked were perfect.

As for me and my brother, we tried the Chilli Cheeseburger. All i coukd say was that their patty was very well seasoned and very juicy. I love the mix of the chilli con carne with the cheese. The buns were warm and didnt took all of the burger plate. Hehe its proportion is enough to feed one.

Ohhh so yummu I think i want another more of this today! Hehe

And if your bringing your kiddo along they also have a meal which consists of a fried chicken wing with rice.

The price is very affordable. Their burger ranges from 110-125 pesos, but im sure that the burgers are worth what your paying. The chicken wings depends on the number of wings. For 2 buffalo wing we orderes we payed only 85 pesos. The price range isnt so bad at all. Hehehe

So if you’re looking for those hot wings around CDO don’t forget to drop by at lefty’s!!!

Before we went inside we were given masks because the construction is still on going and the dusts and the smell of the paints might irritate us. That’s me and my friend Mindanaoan , Miss Emz and Eia. We were also asked to wear hard hats for safety purposes.

Here is one of the leasing staff of Centrio, explaining to us the different Zones of the mall. What I’m excited about is the Alfresco area. New Restaurants are coming our way!

image

Here is their garden! Dont wory guys, they’re still on the process of landscaping that part.They preserved this tree as part of their outdoor garden where families can sit down, relax and dine in this cozy part of the mall. Growing up, whenever i pass by this area i would always wonder what would happen to this tree, now I know it’s purpose, to bring more life in the new Centrio mall.

my new york day!

Standard
my new york day!
Someday when I find myself standing at the middle of Times Square! this is what my outfit would be. Simple yet can be formal when i want to go to watch some Broadway shows or go to museums. I like the simplicity of it. I love that I chose to wear a wedge, because it makes me look taller and at the same time i wont find it hard to roam around the city and going on public transport would just be a breeze for my feet! I love having with me a large bag! I’m the kind of person who loves to bring a lot of things with me, because simply I just don’t want to forget anything!

Friends

The 1st of September

Standard

3 years ago i gave birth to a healthy baby boy via Cesarean Section. We were the happiest parents that day! Now my son is happy to celebrate his 3rd birthday. For months and weeks he has always been telling us that he wants to have Spiderman on his birthday, so we really worked hard to give him a Spiderman themed birthday. When we went to the party organized that i liked, they said that they don’t have a Spiderman themed party. Since Thirdy loves Jake and the neverland pirates, I chose that theme for him but made his cake Spiderman themed. I guess he got the best of both worlds. Last Saturday, during his birthdayt, It started to rain so hard during lunch time, and I was very scared if the kids could still come because the weather was not that great. Then my husband had to go on a seminar that was last minute announced to them. Good thing my husband was able to catch up at the party! when I got there my cousin Gelo was there as promised to make what he called as “croquembuche” which by the way tasted so good! My 2 best Friends in the world was there also to help me set the table and everything. Thank you very much Elaine Butron and Kring Escano (we miss you Jiselle Fuentes) The party went great and the kids enjoyed the game and the mommies too! That day was such a happy day for thirdy, the kids enjoyed also the free ice cream and the cotton candies. I would give everything to see my son happy on his birthday! Thank you very much to PYCO fun factory for hosting yet again my son’s birthday. Thank you very much to all who came and made my son’s birthday extra special! to my family who made this possible thank you so much! To my sister kristine for making the cupcakes extra special and for those yummy chocolate chip cookies! For my sister-in-law thank you for those yummy fried chicken and meaty spaghetti that you made! I’m sure the kids liked it so much!

My sister made these spiderman cupcakes for my little man.
