...i got a quinny!!

or should i say tsugtsug got a quinny!!! my wonderful and very generous colleagues bought tsugtsug his very first stroller!!!! ohmygosh up to now i couldn't believe they bought me such an .... .expensive gift hahahaha! thanks so much! i just told them to buy me a "nice-to-have" and this really exceeded my expectations. now, pangs just has to buy the infant car seat to go with the stroller so tsugtsug can use it as soon as he is born!

tsugtsug will look good in red!!! luvv u guysssss!

m, me, j, l and yy enjoying the pizza

l with gf, a, r and mommy in red too! color of the day

L singing 'like a virgin' on the magic sing.. such an appropriate song for her L O L!

L doing the speech.. she's such a sweetheart (and b*tch in one, lol), i will miss her terribly. she's like me, we both cry easily hehe.

my mom and i are almost packed and ready to go.. (just a few more stuff).. so excited for my sister's wedding! after a lot of drama and suspense.. she will be walking the aisle and we're so happy for her! congratulations to my Ate!

yesterday was my last day at work and it was still hectic.. was still working at 6pm and i almost didn't make it in time to meet my agent! they will do the paperwork for me (cancel my EP and stuff like that) i'll definitely miss my filipino and local friends... i'll also miss my team lead.. (the nice one!) i told him (xw) that it was a good thing i was transferred to his team halfway thru my employment as i would've quit earlier if i wasn't! lol! i told him how grateful i was and how much i learned so much from him. oooh i wanted to hug him there and then when he said goodbye to me bwahaha! (must be my preggy hormones)

anyway, i'm so happyyyyyyyyyyyy to be work-free!!! (stress free!) i have bought some of tsugtsug's stuff as well (they're all in my balikbayan box!)... some avent stuff that people told me to buy here as they're more expensive in manila.. but other than that, i'll buy the rest in SM! haha! i'm so excited to do some major shopping for tsugtsug..clothes, blankets, bath stuff, the works! pangs also bought some baby gap stuff .. (sabi ko nga, mas sosyal pa si tsugtsug kesa saten uh! abah naka gap!) seems like gap is cheaper in tokyo than here in sg. He bought onesies that say "YES, I have always been this cute" hehehe.

that's all for now. see you guys soon! (oh, here are some more pics from our bbq last last week at A's condo.. their condo had a freakin bowling lane.. how cool is that!?)


anak ni rommel.. super cute! clap siya everytime magroll yung ball.. khet nga canal ka, palakpak siya! (look at the pic before this, pumapalakpak din siya hehe)

mommy doing it.. abah, mukhang strike uh hehe.

ay onga pala.. belated happy valentines to everyone and happy birthday to my pangs!! (he now has someone sleeping with him.. teddy bear he named rocky! c/o vivian who he met on the 26th. thanks vivian for being my courier! heehe)

side kwento lang..
i guess my husband has spoiled me a lot (okay, yeah, its a fact) and i have started to expect these flowers and gifts on special occasions.. (you can't blame me pangs!) and with everyone in the office saying "where's your flowers, Ann?" i couldn't help wondering myself... on the morning of valentine's day.. my mom texted me:

momi: "may package ka from raymond!!"
i then squealed at my seat and sent an instant message to my officemate M "I got a package from raymondddd" so i texted my mom.. and asked what was it.
momi: "ewan ko. baka card"
and i was like "huh? card..." it was so not pangs' style and so i thought about it and then WHAMMMM. my giddy feeling was gone. i texted my mom.
me: "that's not a card. its the security pass and some cds raymond took with him by mistake"
and momi was still optimistic:
momi: "malay mo!"
me: "buksan mo na!"
momi: "nyah. security card nga tsaka isang cd. hehe"
(nang-asar pa si momi lol!)

so i told M about this and she was laughing so hard and told me to lower my expectations haha.

but then of course pangs still gave me flowers (received it at 6pm) when some random chinese guy just called me and asked "what time you leaving, eh?" and me saying without hesitation, without asking who he was "8pm" and said goodbye. THEN i told M i finally got my flowers haha. The guard already knows me by my name because of the flowers i get.. cause they're only a few months apart (november- my birthday, january-our anniversary and now feb for valentines)
and i got mama and baby giraffe as well!!!

with mama and baby giraffe

look at my tummy! pictures c/o paparazzi jeff.

that's all folks! bye!

...i wanna go home

.. cause everyone has left! its the eve of chinese new year and work is half-day for all employees.. and lucky us, contractors not included. (not in our team anyway).. my TL did tell us we can go home at 7ish if there wasn't any major problems.. (poor R and L has to stay 'til handover).. he gave us this weird creepy smile while saying it.. i guess i'll be happy too if i was on sick leave monday-tuesday and then on holiday for thursday and friday. (he knows how to time his sickness well)

anyway.. mom and dad are here! and cousin C also! haven't had time to go anywhere with them because of work but since its holiday tomorrow til friday, we'll probably go to the usual spots (sentosa, night safari.. ohmygosh night safari again??) its sooo nice to have my parents here.. i missed them sooo much. now my mom prepares me breakfast (rice for breakfast, how great is that! lol! no more froot loops ehehe) and she even did the laundry for me last night! (I showed her the many advantages of an automatic washing machine.. lol. my dad doesn't like the automatic ones, he says its waste of soap and water.. i told him, i'll never go back to a tub with a separate washer and spinner.. neeeever againnnnnnn!!!)

Pangs also feels so much better now that my mom is here.. at least he's assured that someone is taking care of me. I'm especially scared for the late night cramps.. now I just put some ointment every night and I try not to stretch with my legs pointed. that usually causes my extremely painful leg cramps. speaking of pangs.. its snowing in tokyooooooo. shhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeet. i'm so inggit. super major jealous. hay. demmit. lol. oh well. will just shave some ice and throw it around. lol. ingats ka dyan pangs.. bawal madulas sa snow.

Going home now.. looking forward to the looong weekend ahead. Happy Chinese New year!!

...tsug tsug power!

...tsugtsug power!!

last wednesday, for the very first time, a kind lady offered me her seat at the MRT.. i was late (left at quarter to 11am) so i decided to take bus 40 to the Aljunied MRT.. I usually don't take that bus.. mainly because i have to take a pedestrian overpass to get to the station.. but anyway, i didn't want to be late (again) so i took it.. good thing i did! this lady, perhaps in her 30s looked at me and offered me her seat.. wowwwwwwww! i feel its official, i now look pregnant! (after 28 weeks haha) i was also wearing a sorta tight fitting blouse (sorta, because it wasn't really tight fitting, but it was my most tight fitting empire cut blouse) so i thought that might have helped.. anyway.. i'll neverrr forget her hahaa. i was profusely saying thank you to her. there are signs here above some selected mrt seats that say "please offer this seat to someone who needs it more than you do" with a picture of an elderly and a pregnant lady. so I walked towards that and held on to the bar but the 2 gay guys didn't offer me their seat, it was the lady who did. i knew they were gay cause as soon as I sat down, they began talking to each other "oh my gawwwd, we're so meannn. we didn't offer seats! i completely forgot this sign. we're seated under the siiiigggggnnnn. oh my gawwwwd." LOL. it was funny. hehe.

Aljunied MRT station must be a lucky charm for me because today, i got offered a seat again!!! (i am sooo amazed hehe) this time by a man... perhaps 40s.. AND, i was wearing a very loose empire cut blouse! so, this means, i really look pregnant now! (so happy hahahaha) Pangs calls it "tsug tsug power".. hahaha. i'm now re-thinking the Bus 40.. might be taking that route more often if i get seats from there hehe. I've stared people down in Lavander MRT to no avail.

I think tsugtsug is really getting visible now (i'm sooo glad). Although I have painful back aches, leg cramps, and my tummy feels really heavy AND I get tired sooo easily, I'm glad i'm finally showing a tummy. I was getting a bit worried but I've even googled about my small tummy. They say as long as the doctor says its okay, then there's no need to worry. I have my checkup tomorrow so I'll ask her then.

Speaking of checkups.. ammm sooo excited to see tsugtsug again. I'll try to ask for a picture again.. (for you pangs! hehe) that's it for now..

Advance Happy Birthday Harbie! and Have a good weekend guys!
