Neo will be 3 soon

From my perspective, 2010 just came breezing by. It was just like weeks ago when we spent a weekend in Tagaytay celebrating Neo's 2nd birthday. Today, barely only two weeks to go and we are again celebrating his 3rd birthday. Sometimes you ponder, if you just let time pass by, you will really be missing a lot of precious moments. One thing I realized during my recovery time after my operation is to really relish life. Feel it. Savor every moment you have with your child and your family.

Neo will soon be 3 years old. We want him to grow loved and cared for. We will give him the best without spoiling him. We will provide him all the comfort without being over protective. We will give him quality time if we still can't afford to give him all our time (in the meantime).

We want him to always feel that "Papap loves me!" and "Mommy loves me!".

and that, we truly do.

Neo sick

Papap and Neo asleep at the Med City ER (10/06/2010)

Neo's cough worsened last Tuesday that's why we sent him over to the ER of Medical City the next afternoon. I don't like it when Neo gets sick. I pains me too. Anyway, he was administered with paracetamol and was discharged for respiratory tract infection. He was also advised to take CBC and platelet count which turned out to be under normal levels.

We returned two days after for another blood test just to be sure that its not dengue.

all the major characters of "Cars"
all the lead trains of "Thomas and Friends"
all the main characters of "Finding Nemo"
some of the characters in "Barney"
all the teachers and student teachers in his school
all the kids in his school including all of the yayas!
all the kids in the neighborhood including the yayas!


he knows how to play with the iphone
he knows how to to load DVDs in the player
he knows Facebook
He knows a "link" when accessing a siye in the internet
he understands "loading" when waiting to open a link

The few days before I was about to be operated, I had a numbed tongue. I don't feel and I can't savour the food that I eat. Wala akong panlasa. And being a delectable eater, I felt frustrated. I said to myself, " I am going to eat the most tasty food after all these are over!".

Right after my operation, all I ate were hospital food. When I went home, although the food that my sister and Val prepared were very good, I was still craving. And then came last Sunday, our thanksgiving dinner. These were the dishes we ordered.


Callos. Ritzie's choice. Very, very good!

Ilokano style pinakbet.

Pork sisig and tofu, which came in two variants - crispy and with mayonaise

We ordered to desserts, Blueberry cheesecake na di na nakaabot for picture taking and below was what was left or the turon with vanilla ice cream.

Of couse, what is a meal without ..... Iced tea!

Burp! cravings taken care of. Healthy food next!

First Mass & Thanksgiving dinner

Yesterday, as the Holy Family Parish (Kapitolyo) celebrated the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, Val, Neo and myself heard our first mass after my operation. We offered our gratitude for all the blessings He bestowed upon us and we are very thankful that we survived the battle. We are looking forward to a "new" life under the Lord's guidance and will.

That night, Ruthie, Ritzie, Val, Neo and myself celebrated by way of a thanksgiving dinner at Cafe Juanita.

Neo has a slight fever . He had cough since Saturday. Naulanan when he went to school last Friday. I hope it will soon go away.
