Happy New Year To the FABS

Happy New Year from FAB Momma (wannabe lol). I hope you have someone you love nearby that you can snuggle with this New Year’s. I know I’ll be keeping my two favorites as close as possible!



One of the FAB moms online is celebrating her precious birthday today. Her babyblog is one of my favorite pitstop online coz i get to read updates about her lovely and adorable kids. I may be busy today but I won't let this day ends without extending my happy birthday greetings to her thru here...


Yakitori, Oyter Katsu et al

It's been awhile. I missed posting a Foodtrip entry for several weeks. Ive got loads of yummy photos to share but this week, I'm sharing this...

A Japanese Chicken barbecue which is called YAKITORI (upper left)
Breaded fried Oyster or Oyter Katsu (upper right)

Oppps, I dont know what I should call the dish at the center. I just saute the pork strips and eggplant with a chinese oyster sauce and served it with Lettuce. Not bad =)


On Shopping (before and after marriage)

Rodliz’s Nest

What i love and admire most about my honey hide is his generosity. He's never been or would have been a KURIPOT. Never an instance in our 4 years of being together that I heard him saying "expensive huh?". Even the first time we hanged out, our table was filled with foods and drinks. He would  always ask me or my friends if we need more.. I even find him so mayabang then, trying to impress me. On our dates, sometimes I would hear him whispering "yasui"(cheap) when he pays the bill while I was always surprised (and sometimes nanghihinayang) to see how much he paid. Of course, I dont tolerate expensive dinners nor any pricey things anymore especially now we already have a kid. Although sometimes, we treat ourselves a fine dinner outside inspite of being also affected by global economic crisis.

About shopping.
When we were still dating and eventually become steady, I never asked money for shopping. There were times that he insisted to give me shopping moolah but I always refused. I was shy and uncomfortable. Besides I was earning my own money at that time, I was working. I dont even want go to a mall with him coz I can't concentrate, you know how girls take their time looking around to every nice stalls. I usually spend alot with clothes, shoes, and bags. If not for myself, for others (well atleast people close to me). I always have nice presents for my loveones, especially for Hide on special ocassions ( now i don't )
Shopping was then my divertion to loneliness / homesickness. I was earning and thought I deserve to shop more. Half a day wasn't enough.



One of the fab mommas online is celebrating her birthday today with her Loveones

She's one of the bloggers that I admire so much. Most of her posts are related to parenting and kids, which moms can learn so much.

Her Word Filled Wednesdays fills our day with a positive outlook. Of course, the  every mom's favorite task online is her Mommy MOments. That's my favorite meme too. I met a lot of good mommy bloggers thru her weekly meme.

I could share more good things about her but I might take too much of your time so visit her inspirational blogs instead and If you're a mom, join us every friday and share your Mommy MOments with us.



Rodliz’s Nest

I think we are over the JEALOUS thingie. But I shouldn't be so assured. My life revolves around my hubby, my baby and my family here, in short, my current social life is zero lol.

Seriously, I think Im not the jealous type, or maybe I am one lucky lady coz my bf and now my hubby never gave me a reason to be jealous. There was a time I was teasing him, acting like a jealous wifey (but im not really) like "uyyy, i think you're not really watching the news, but the newscaster instead.."--- I was just teasing him then coz he watches news every 10pm and watch the next news on the other channel aired every 11:30pm (with a beautiful newscaster). Instead of laughing back at my joke, he just answered me with a serious tone "it's not funny.."... and then the next night, he didn't watched the 11:30 news lol. I made hirit again, "how come you're not watching the news?", then his answer was "tsumaranai koto iu kara!" --only A.Seiko and A.Clang understands what he said--- well he means he just dont want to hear any nonsense comment from me, it will just destroy the night (duh?).. So another joking hirit, "no problem with me if you watch your FAVORITE news, i can't blame you if you like the newscaster coz even me, i admire her beauty..blah blah..."... I was the only one laughing outloud in our room, he was mad lol

Meet My Parents

I have lots of fun photos with my family and relatives. I grew up in a huge number of family. Just imagine how fun it was growing up with all of my cousins which I grouped into 3 Generations lol.. My dad is the fifth child among the eleven children of my Grannies (that's why)

Anyway, I just want you to meet my loving parents, Mum and Dad..

Oopps don't be confused.. They are just friends but I believe the love will always be there. They are happy with their life now, that's what matters most.


Sweet 53rd month

Lately my Honey Hide is extra sweet lol.. Just last month, he surprised me by coming home with a Pink flower for our 52nd monthsary as a couple. And this month, he came home with this lovely yellow flower... I didn' expected this.



Kiss and Make UP

Rodliz’s Nest

The time we had our first LQ, I had to be the one to say sorry even If I didn't do anything wrong. He was mad but I think I made him even more mad when I acted being mad as well lol. Well I was always like that even in my past relationships ( parang reverse psychology but it didn't worked to him ). That time I realized I might loose him. Kaka-start pa lang kasi namin and he's supposed to enjoy his first visit in the Philippines. SO when he was packing all his things, I begged and said I was soooo sorry while crying so hard lol..and yeah, I got him and the rest is history....... (haha)

During our first year as couple, whenever we argue ( over some petty things), he's always calm, serious and willing to talk after the tension. While me, I don't talk and I don't listen. I was immature when it comes to this... I actually hate confrontations. I usually walk out to avoid serious conversations. When I can't walk out, my voice gets louder and hysterrical. That was before...

My Birthday

I was born on May 13, 1982 in Angeles City Pampanga..

Nothing special about my birthday lol.

Well it was a special day for my parents and relatives because I was safely given birth by a normal delivery. I had a big brother who was born lifeless 2 years prior my birth year. No one knew what was the cause of his death.. I never met him but there's something in me that longs for him. I remember, when I was a kid, every birthday I would secretly wish he was here. I was really longing for a Kuya although I grew up surrounded by a lot of guy cousins who treated me like their real sister.

Anyway, I feel that I am getting old. Just thinking about rounding off my age, scares me. I don't know why. I'll be 30 in two years, yak! (no offense meant, its just me who's scared of getting old). Ang bilis talaga ng panahon. I still really feel it was like only a year ago when I was 22.

More Birthdays from the GT here


Kids that I love So Much

One of the many many things that I miss in the Philippines is the noisy environment... Not the noisy streets but the giggles, laugh, and the loud voices of the kids in our house, or in any house of a family, especially on special occassions.. My nephews, nieces, cousins, even my brother and sister are all over the place...

And this slide shows the kids that I love...

With Love Wednesday


Yes I have a lil brother and a sister in my father's side. Actually I have 4 sisters and 2 brothers in my dad's side. Im not ashame to tell you that 5 of them are my half siblings.. Well my Dad is always the Ladies' Man especially during his time lol. He's not that good looking but I guess he's oozing with sex appeal lol or maybe he has qualities that women falls inlove with...

What I am proud about my dad is he never left his responsiblities and obligations on the mothers of his children. He's a good person despite of being weak among women. Maybe that is why he' still friends with them.

Anyway he's a change man (according to him but no one believes him heheh)... Mom and Dad has become good friends since year 2000. We wished them to be together again before but it was impossible... What matters most is the love they had and the respect they have for each other.



My gosh, one of my close ol friend is celebrating her birthday. Others said we were look alikes lol pero she's prettier and more gorgeous than me.

She's a certified pink and apple lover. She loves anything fabulous.


Torta Giniling

This is how we eat our Torta Giniling, always served with letus, ala Thai Dish.

Torta is the first Pinoy Food Ive learned to cook ( almost 4 years ago i think..). It's also the easiest... It has become my specialty.

Hubby likes it when rolled/wrapped in an uncut letus leaf, while I eat it with letus stips. Banana makes me feel like eating a real filipino food..

Fave Gift

Aside from the Coach bags and Hermes Watch, my latest favorite would be my..........

Harman/Kardon Dynabook TX67

This was my hubby's gift after I gave birth to our lovechild. I was actually waiting for Windows 7 but just couldn't wait anymore lol.. Windows vista isn't that bad though...

Anyway, dont mind the pink candy box and the cellphone. It's the only photo I have for now.

I am not really a pink person but eversince I knew I was having a girl, I finally find pink so kawaii. But still, Im no pink person-- i just have few stuffs in pink. (I guess this is my nth time of telling you this lol)


Couple's Corner

OK i missed a lot 94b994a7577a32725a2485b14da910c2.gif image by labambita... i let few weeks past without sharing my own story for CC. As much as I wanted to post, I end up quitting... I just couldn't concentrate because of my lil girl who's always there on my lappie's side, making kalikot to the wire cables and trying to press my keyboards when she can944f6dc86b93bdee729e1b2950520eff.gif image by labambita. Posting about our stories can really take me too long to type - there are just sooo many things to share. Anyway, I still have those drafts in my personal blog.. I actually thought of posting them there instead because its something personal, its about me, my rants and my other half. Nonetheless, Im sharing it here...

It's never too late as Mommy Liz' told me.

Talking about our first misunderstanding.. I remember it so well... But let me first share your some recaps before we proceed. (hope it wont bore you, i tried to be creative lol may title pa bawat episodes)

Some Facts:

Taken by my friend during one of our group hangout

2heartsicon.gif image by bams704Making it slow
Started going out just the two us on April but still we were taking it slow

2heartsicon.gif image by bams704May Escapades
My sister who is my forever partner in crime was here at that time, so we had our escapades during late at night, with my sister as chaperone (syempre pinay ako lol) We just hang out and eat... Saying goodbye then would take us an hour before he could really start his car to go home

Honey and my dear lil sis @ Denny's during one of our late night escapades

2heartsicon.gif image by bams704June affairs
It was getting deeper and lovelier.. It was like highschool love again. You know, telebabad til early morning (the longest time we talk over the phone was almost 5 hours, 3am to 8 --no kidding i swear), sweet mails with matching smileys... chuckling for no reason. In short, we're really inlove. Even Mom noticed it, i was smiling with my eyes sparkling lol.

My sissy took this.. first time nya humakbay sa akin, pa-simple pa lol

2heartsicon.gif image by bams704The Promise
I had to go home before my visa expires on July 7. We went out once more, the two of us, but this time, we went too far--out of town lol but no overnight (syempre NO way! not this time)

July 5, 2005 our first out of town, Hakone

It was hard to let go but then I came back home to Philippines without any expectations from him. If he's really serious, he'll follow.

And he did, after few weeks... He followed and experienced his first visit to Philippines. Maybe some of you know how it goes in our very own NAIA for the first timers lol. I warned him to be careful and Im glad he didn't bite those "Manggagancho" Airport Staffs (sorry for the word)995830a7ea71a19965b0408096b50a04.gif image by labambita.

July 31, 2005 his first night in the Philippines, @ Greenbelt 3, Makati

Finally, we are officially a couple. I made sure he will enjoy his first visit in the Philippines which he did coz he stayed for 2 weeks and came back after 2 weeks and stay for 2 weeks again lol

The First Misundertanding

It was going smoothly during the first few days, until one night, we were having a good time at Eastwood Libis when my phone rang, it was my gay friend who was calling me asking where I was, will I ever go out to see them blah blah...? I forgot I promised to hang out with them that day after a very long time. He was a friend whom I havent been hanging out with for so many years. A week after I came back home from JP, we saw each other again and promise to hang out. To make the long story short, my new boyfriend was soooooooo mad! As in super super mad. He thought I was two timing him.. Why would a guy call me so late at night daw.. and why does my phone keeps on beeping (texts)??? My gosh, if he only knows how pinoys would rather text instead of phone calls.. Hilig pa naman natin magtext text diba... And haller, its normal for me to have late phonecalls and texts from friends....

Anyway, I wasnt answering the texts at first because I was with him, so my friend called me na lang and it happened na malakas boses nya. After the call, he was so quiet and serious.

I was laughing at first kasi pinagseselosan nya ang bading na friend ko. But he was so serious. It was the first time I saw him so angry, his eyes were so mad. I wasn't really good in handling tempers at that time, at shock din ako lol.

He went to the parking lot, gosh I was crying na talaga and felt helpless coz he never listens.. He wants to go back in our condo, and even asked me to call the ticketing office coz he badly wanna go back to Japan asap.. I panicked of course620e0e2bf9b87739e1707fb168256983.gif image by labambita...

After few hours of arguments and apologizing, we finally kissed and made upimage by labambita. That was the longest night ever lol.

(sorry for the long post dearies...)

Love For Life

Me and the man in my life, Hide

When we were still dating, we used to go in a game center and have Purika shots afterwards.. i miss those days, when we could stay out late at night til my curfew, out of blue joyrides, watching movies, out of towns, etc.

Nevertheless, our life now is much simpler and quiet. Living a happy family life with our love child. I know someday, we would be back again to our dating phase, but for now, we're happy and enjoying our parenthood to our
lil lovely daughter.

Gosh Im loving this new meme... it takes out the mushy in me...
