Sorry for not updating this blog for sometime. I was really in a rowdy schedule the past week and had no time to update my blogs. It’s is only by this time that I get to check online work and hoping to get them done the soonest, officially I am back aboard!
Just got back from Sunday service and I was so so blessed. I thank God for the opportunity to worship Him and hear His message again. After a couple of months being in a hibernate mode with God, I have never felt so blessed worshiping Him, not after this Sunday’s Worship. I have decided to reconnect to the One who gave it all for me. I really miss Him soo much especially those time that I feel closest to Him! I am so blessed to finally regain my longing for Jesus and grow deeper in Him. It feels so good to be back, not just online but in one of the most important aspect in our life!
I used to capture landscapes but having two adorable boys to mind, I ended up capturing their portrait instead. I miss seeing those beautiful escapes through my lens, framing it in my view finder and then firing the shutter to finally capture it.
Tripping down to my old landscape photos made me wanting to go out for a landscape shoot. This however gave me a thought of having them printed on a canvass and hang them up on our walls. They’ll definitely look good when framed rather than burying them inside my hard drives. Good thing online local printing is very much affordable these days so I might have them printed to adorn our plain boring walls.
Here is a snap of Kuala Lumpur’s famous skyline and Singapore’s Esplanade. Photos were previously uploaded in my photoblog.
Three years ago I have decided to become a lifetime partner of my dearest Zoeante. Today we mark our third year of marriage. It’s a time to look back at the good times and even the bad ones that we had in our three years journey to life. This is also a time for us to look ahead and press forward for the future, live our dreams together and forever be inlove!
Thank you very much for everything and for making me a happy wife and mother! I’m glad that it was you who is with me in this lifetime journey! Happy Anniversary my dearest Zoeante! I love you!
While pushing hard, I heard my husband’s whisper on my ear “he is born! He is born!” And there he was, under the care of a paediatrician. That was the first time I saw my little one. While he was being attended by the paediatrician, I was screaming in pain while undergoing an episiotomy procedure. While I was enduring the pain of every stitch, the midwife handed over my baby to me. And that was the first time I met baby Z. It was tears of joy that rolled over my face when I first met him and while he was in my arms. I can’t forget the beautiful, angelic and fragile face looking at me. Seeing him was really worth all the pain and truly one of the joyous moments for me and husband.
I was emotionally prefer of becoming a mother, so it did not took a long time for me to comprehend that I am now a mother. With five months of being a mom, I definitely love the feeling and the experience. I know it is still a very long journey for me. I know there is more of just being a live and walking milk provider, nappy changer and a drool wiper. Motherhood is a never ending story and I know the responsibility of being a mother is never easy, but with the guidance of our parents and the help of my husband, I am slowly muddling through the changes of becoming a first time mom and continuously learning every inch of being a mother. Motherhood is slowly changing me and my priorities. It brings a new perspective in me.
On the other hand, being a home maker is not easy for someone who’s starting a family. I find it hard being a mom and at the same time a home maker. Being a first time mom, my focus and priority is my baby, and so I leave almost all the housework to our reliable and ever diligent house help.
I am still in the learning process, and I know it would be long way to run. I am optimistic, and so I am giving more room for this life’s learning lessons. That is why I do believe that time will come; I will be able to do them both. So help me God.
Hubby and I had a fishy delight at the fisher’s man cove at starhill gallery. It was an unplanned dinner at a fine dining restaurant, just before I flew back to manila. As the name says, you get to feel the fisherman’s lifestyle as you sit beside the sails of a boathouse in the middle of bamboo furniture while you savour the pleasant gems of the seas.

Fisher’s man cove offer a variety of menu that ranges from abalone to prawns and crab and of course fish. Their menu is not just limited to seafoods. They also offer pleasant surprises for meat and pasta lovers as well as delightful dessert.
Our stomach was still full from our late lunch so we decided to skip the starters and went ahead to the main course and it just sound like we’re not full. It was a truly satisfying diner, with Blackened red snapper fillet with wasabi aioli, sauteed potato and beef bacon serve with young papaya and mango plus fish and chips and a trio of sauces and a chocolate pudding for our dessert. Yummy delight plus a good quality of service truly is a satisfying diner at Fisher’s man cove.
Fisher’s man Cove is located at Starhill Gallery 181, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur and a complete meal is ranging from 100 – 180 RM.
If you have been following my blog, then you know how much I desire to become a work at home mom. Today, two days after my resignation took effect, a new door has opened and I think I am close of fulfilling my dreams of becoming a work at home mom. A local Malaysian Architectural firm has offered a project to be outsourced just before I flew back to Manila to be with my son. What a blessing! I am so grateful and excited about this. This is such a great opportunity and a great way to earn from home right next to baby Z, considering that it will be a long term project.
This is not bragging about it, but this is my way of showing others that God is a living God. He hears our prayer when you least expect it. Its not too early nor too long, it was just on time. Just hold on to His promises and believe by faith that it will be granted in His perfect time. Thank you so much Lord for the answered prayer. Once again, You have proven your faithfulness to your children. Your ways are simply amazing and You have just added another reason for me to praise You more and more!
Mommy Rubz of pinaymommyonline is hosting a thanksgiving giveaway. The theme is all about the things that you are thankful for from last year, right now or anything as long as you are thankful for it. So, while I desire for a fruitful twenty eleven for me and my family, there’s a lot of things that I should be thankful for the year that have passed. And I am writing this as entry to mommy rubz thanksgiving giveaway.
To start with, I am thankful with our newly acquired 2 bedroom condominium unit at Bali Oasis. This is our first investment a year after we get married. We haven’t touched its interior yet, but we have successfully rented it out barely.
Early in 2009 just a month after we get married, our company was affected by the global economic crises, and have retrenched half of its employees. Since hubby and I work in the same company in Dubai, we were thankful that we were not fired instead we were both transferred to different branch office, 5 months in Mumbai, and currently in Kuala Lumpur for more than a year now. Being a couple, its a big blessing for us that the company sends us together for work in different part of the world. Living in Kuala Lumpur, gives us a chance to invite our families to visit us and explore Malaysia. I was thankful that we were able to invite my family for a vacation here in Malaysia. It was a family bonding or I would say a reunion, since my father works overseas and get to go home to the Philippines once in every two years, and my only sibling stays in the Philippines and I am here in Kuala Lumpur. It was a great time together, exploring Malaysia and Singapore with my family. We’ve had my inlaws as well and some lovely friends who visited us in Kuala Lumpur.
Before the year ends, I think most of us – regular employees, would expect a salary increase, and i was blessed that Hubby and I got our salary increment mid of 2010.
March 2010, the biggest surprise came; I was finally pregnant with our first baby. And come December 3 2010, our bundle of joy arrived. Hubby and I were very much thankful to God, for everything that we’ve been praying was answered; Safe and healthy pregnancy, a normal and safe delivery and a healthy baby.
I was still in recovery stage when we celebrated our second wedding anniversary last December 9 2010. It was only a simple dinner celebration at home with a piece of chocolate cake from my hubby. Thankful for staying happy and faithful together for two years and still counting. Praise God! He is truly faithful with His promises to His people. Thank you Lord for all the blessings!
If there’s one person who is more than proud the way I do with our little one, it’s none other than his big daddy. From the start of my pregnancy up to the delivery it was my husband who was constantly beside me and I have to give credit to him for making things easier for me from the pregnancy, delivery and up to now that our little one is with us.
I can clearly recall his excitement the moment that we knew that we’re going to be parents and the waiting game makes him more excited to become a father as we get closer to the delivery date. And finally, it came to pass that my dear husband is now a proud daddy. An overwhelming feeling mixed with joy and anxiousness. Anxious of being a first time dad, what to expect, what to do, and what’s necessary? But beyond those anxieties is an overwhelming joy or rather an unexplainable joy that our little one has brought us. He just love watching his son sleeping and would often brag how handsome his little one is, just like him. Lol.
Fatherhood can be a tricky thing but I know he is doing his best that he knows to become a good father to our first born.
After baby Z’s arrival, life will never be the same again for me and my hubby. It’s a life changing manoeuvre and a new beginning for us. We are now getting the drape of being parents. Truly life will never be the same again, although this means that we will always have to put our baby first and won’t have much time for ourselves, it is worth satisfying knowing that we have the most beautiful and fascinating child with his own personality whom we will always love unconditionally. They said, there’s nothing that compares with the love of parents for child, yes its true, and by now we are now beginning to understand the unconditional love of a parent for their child.
