This morning, I got a text from Jinggoy “Ria’s water bag broke”. It’s time. Romina Ceta Lorenzo was born this noon (July 16, 2009) at 8 lbs 2 oz, 55cm. Big girl indeed! Congratulations Bong and Ria!

The whole gang has been waiting for this little baby since Monday! The boys were supposed to have a jamming session but due to Ria’s condition, those boys gathered in the hospital corridor and talked about their music.ย  Ria was surprised and even asked “why are they all here?”. hahah moral suport! ๐Ÿ™‚ Later on, she was asked to go home. The two of us, both preggy, went to Trinoma instead and had a couple of cups of Red Mango frozen yogurt. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  At least, that time, I was with someone who would truly understand my very frequent bathroom habits.

Another thing to celebrate…

Luuuuuv TLC!

If I’m not using Facebook, I usually watch TV.

Tucked in a very spacious king-sized bed, I start channel-surfing from Ch24 (Discovery) to 90 (SciFi).ย  Usually, I stop in Ch26 (Discovery Travelย  & Living Channel). Ooooh, how I love this channel! It’s also one of the reasons why my brother doesn’t want to change cable operators. It used to be the Travel & Adventure Channel years ago until they changed it to TLC.

Samantha Brown, Anthony Bourdain, Bob Blumer, Ian Wright, Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, and David Rocco are just some of the people I’ve been stuck with in the tube for probably more than 7 years now. Whether it’s about food or a destination, every episode is something to learn about.

I just hope TLC will be there until I grow old, until the time I could say “been there, done that!”

After “The tonic that killed Michael Jackson”

Final reports and test results aren’t out regarding MJ’s death but I previously posted an entry regarding his overdosage. My apologies. Now, another drug related to his death caught my attention: Xanax.

It sounded familiar to me. I took them too, of course, legally.

Jinggoy and I went to the Department of Foreign Affairs to have our passports renewed. Since we had our appointment, it took us just an hour and a half to finish up everything. We’ll be picking up our passports on the 20th. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ristras y Caramia!

After my hon’s passport search in Cubao, we decided to head to MOA to watch Transformers in IMAX. Unfortunately, EDSA was at a stall just right after Santolan.

We then decided to fill our hungry tummies and headed to Greenhills. Off to Ristras!

blonde or brunette leighton?

Last week, while I was watching “House MD”, a blonde teen was sort of obssessed over House. It was Leighton Meester.

I finally got what I was craving for

I’ve been craving for some moist carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for a couple of days now.

This morning, I asked Jinggoy again to look for some carrot cake. Unfortunately, he didn’t find any from nearby cafes and bakeshops. Thus, I made my own using the same recipe I used before (see 06/11/08 entry).

A peek at my messy workplace with half a kilo of carrots, grated.

missin’ these

after 4 years, i was able to eat fresh cherries again! been munching on these like peanuts when I was in Spain. ๐Ÿ™‚ love ’em!

The tonic that killed Michael Jackson


Yes, the same drug I was pleading my docs to inject on me 4 years ago when I got operated on when my stitches hurt badly. One dose and the pain went away, putting me off to sleep. I couldn’t take pain killers because I had allergies and this is the only one safe for me.

Later on, they had to stop Demerol on me to avoid dependency and addiction. No more painkillers, thus, my tolerance for physical pain increased.

“Me Time”

I was able to renew my driver’s license this morning. I was supposed to renew it yesterday but there was a power failure. Luckily, it took only an hour and a half today, plus, I was able to get my license exactly a minute before they closed for their lunch break. Thanks to Jinggoy for the company.

Afterwhich, we had lunch buffet at the Thai Kitchen along Tomas Morato. Good thing, (I think) my morning sickness had stopped. Been throwing up for the past 3 days.

I then returned my hubby to his office to resume work. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Headed to Trinoma for my “me time.” ย It’s been a long time since I did some malling alone.

I was able to buy a pair of sandals (sale at Landmark!), I got another free parking pass for my birthday month (care of A-Card), and now, I’m at the lounge using their Mac for free. There’s a limit of 30 mins but since nobody’s using, we can use it as long as we want. ๐Ÿ™‚

I might have to resume walking or shopping (if I still have moolah) in a few minutes from now. Have to rest my tired feet first.

Thanks to their mac, I’m able to manage my restaurant in FB! hehehe

happy long weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚
