One tired mama.

It’s the last working day of the week and my weekend will officially begin in 2 hours. I am sooo looking forward to weekend. Not because I will get to rest or sleep longer (Asa pa!). Mainly because I am looking forward to accomplishing a couple of tasks I need to do and finalizing party details of Baby S.

I haven’t been feeling well for the last 3 days, with this nasty cold and annoying sore throat I could sense I will be down with a flu in the next couple of days. But a mama needs to attend to the baby 24/7, do household chores, run errands, works full-time in the office, so getting ill is not an option! I thought after getting back from our 2-week holiday I will be well-rested, fully recharged and active. Boy I was wrong! We were exhausted EVERY single day while touring Europe. Based from my phone app, I walked an average of 16,000 steps every day for 15 consecutive days! There was one particular night in Paris when we arrived at our flat I couldn’t move my legs and they were all shaking when I tried to put them up. Apparently, I did 23,000+ steps that day. Edi Wow!

I want to blog about our recent trip and share stories of our adventures (and misadventures) in Europe. One example is when I almost got pickpocketed in Paris. Or the time when we personally saw someone getting robbed in the streets of Brussels. So many things happened to us. There were some minor mishaps but overall it was a very pleasant and interesting trip. For one, it was our first trip without our baby so you could imagine the sepanx (separation anxiety)! To be honest, I did cry a little when I kissed my baby goodbye before we left. I know we will only be away for 2 weeks, but still. It was heartbreaking because my baby is still a baby, only 10 months old. Anyway, I wasn’t that worried because she was in good hands the whole time. Thank you to my ever supporting parents!

So, I will keep this post short for the time being. Hopefully I will get the time again to post about our trip, the next 3 weeks will be busy as hell again… too many things going on and I am having a hard time catching up!

Keep safe everyone!

Stress Drilon + Hagardo Versoza

Ok so medyo nawala ako sa blog world ng ilang linggo. Sinabi ko naman sanyo kulang na kulang ang bente kwatro oras para sa lahat ng mga gagawin ko. Ano ba mga ganap sakin lately? Well, birthday month ko kasi kaya nag MIA ako sa blog. In short, sa buffet ako busy haha!

Nakakasira ng “weight loss program” ko tong buwan na to! Binilang ko kung ilang beses kami nag buffet – ANIM NA BESES!!! Watdapak! Tapos nagrereklamo ako di ako pumapayat! Haha! Lamon pa more.

Anyway, ang dami ko kasi pinagkakaabalahan nitong mga nakaraang linggo (bukod sa pagkain sa mga buffet). Siyempre, tinatry ko pa din mag workout kahit ng kahit 3-4 times a week. Kasama na yan sa routine ko. Tapos lalaruin ko na si baby, na natuto ng mag explore at maging spiderman kaya di pwede maalis ang paningin ko sa bulilit. Tapos andiyan pa yung bet na bet niya ng maglakad kaya lagi na lang masakit ang mga likod ko. Thunders na talaga!

Bukod sa pag aalaga ng anak, siyempre kailangan ko din alagaan ang sarili ko so maghahanda din ako ng mga healthy meals namin ni habibi. Pag inasa ko kay habibi ang lafang namin, makaasa ka naman na di ka magugutom pero makakaasa ka din na di ka kailanman papayat. Haha! Kailangan pilitin ko kumain kami ng mga staple foods ko – kamote, hard boiled eggs, couscous, quinoa! Pambawi ko kasi yan sa mga nilafang namin sa buffet.

Nag start na din ako ng party planning para sa 1st birthday ni baby. May venue na nabook, which is ang pinaka importante sa lahat. So ngayon makaka focus ako sa ibang details. Nag eenjoy naman ako sa planning kahit medyo stressful kasi alam ko naman di pa maappreciate ni baby ang eyfort ni mudra niya. Simple lang naman ang peg ko, ayaw ko din kasi ng bonggang 1st bday kasi nung minsan dinala namin siya sa birthday party, iyak siya ng iyak. Kawawa naman! Naiingayan siya sa dami ng bata na nagsisigawan, tapos si ate pa na emcee ang lakas ng boses sa mic natatakot si bagets haha! So inassume ko na iiyak lang din siya sa sarili niyang party (wag naman sana). So kaya ang gusto ko yung di maingay masyado (may party ba na ganon? Haha!) Parang prayer meeting lang ang peg!

Isa pa sa mga pinagkakaabalahan ko ay ang holiday namin. Nakakaexcite naman talaga mag travel pero nakakastress ang planning aminin niyo! May dalawa kasing holiday akong inaayos kaya doble din ang stress ko! Haaaay!!! Kaswerte ng mga lalaki, laging ang role ay aattend na lang ng birthday party o kaya sasakay na lang ng eroplano!

 

Nakalimutan ko sabihin, may full time job din pala ako haha! Nagbago kami ng boss kaya busy din ang beauty ko sa office. Ang daming mga big boss na nasa opisina ngayon kaya tadtad din kami ng mga meetings, events, at kung ano-ano pang socializing eklavu!

 

Ayan po mga friends ang mga activities ko lately. Iniisip ko nga kung kalian ako makakasingit ng punta sa parlor, kahit pedicure lang. ang buhok ko wala na namang direksyon ang buhay! Nagmamakaawa na ng rebond! Pedicure nga di ko maorasan, rebond pa na limang oras? Haha!

Eto na lang po muna ang update ko. Back to work na uli para sa pang gatas ni baby! Hanggang sa muli mga kaibigan……

Hello from the other side.

This is the excerpt for your very first post.

Hello blog world! Look who’s back!

I’ve been meaning to return to blog world ages ago, but you know, so many things happened… adulthood sucks! Haha!

Anyway, this is my nth attempt to create a new blog. This time I hope it will stay for good, even just for one year. LOL! I can’t promise to be super sipag to write kasi mommy duties come first. (Naks! Ako ba to?! Haha)

So, mainly this blog will be about my life as an expat in Middle East. In case you are interested to know. Lol! I will talk about my new life as a mommy, my journey to yummy mommy (in short: Ibabalik ang nawawalang alindog program), updates as being a newbie investor, a bit of financial literacy, my daily struggles on changing nappies, share my healthy and gluten-free recipes (mga once a month lang to pag sinipag) and a bit of everything. Basically, anything that can come up to my mind. Relevant and not.

So there. I hope you do enjoy my site. If not, paki ko din! Haha! Joke! I don’t welcome any negativity here, no bashing, no judging unless you’re a judge 😀 Good vibes lang lahat ditto. Respect my site and I will respect you. Entiendes?! Good! So watchuweytingpor?! Let’s get the party started… Tugs tugs tugs!!!
