Breastfeeding diaries 1.1

And so, the mommy adventures continues.

My BF and I finally moved out in our place, and settled in our new humble abode. It was only the two of us who moved and fixed our home, and at the same time taking care of our little girl. It was exhausting. I didn’t have enough time to nurse and just relied on formula milk. Even if I did have time? When I tried expressing milk, I had very little which was very depressing. Today was worse as it didn’t even fill up a teaspoon.  Continue reading

The Newbie Mom: My Birthing Experience

I finally gave birth to my bundle of joy, and I must say it was an experience I’d never forget. When I was weeks away my due date, one of my many questions I kept searching online was, “how will I know if I’m about to give birth?” “Will my water break, just like how it’s shown in the movies?”. Well, apparently for me, how I expected to have given birth turned out to be a different and special ordeal for Martin, our angel and I.  Continue reading

The Expectant Mom: Baby Essentials

On June 20, 2015 will mark my 40th week in my pregnancy, and I’m very thankful that my little angel is a full term baby. I’m also thankful to be surrounded with so much love, support and blessings from our families and friends. M and I may not have been able to prepare ourselves, but despite the ordeal, were able to cope up through this experience. Opportunities even opened for M and I, and we strongly believe that our angel is behind all the blessings we’ve been receiving.

Funko Pop + Hello Kitty

Personal: Back in blogging for 2015

Work hard, play hard, and so I have. Reason being of my 5 month long hiatus since my last blog post. I wouldn’t say that I’m burned out with work, I guess I just like to reward myself by spending time with my family and my significant other [sometimes with friends too] as much as I can. I’m more active in Instagram though, where I don’t have to “invest” too much time sitting in front of the computer.

Comic Book Drive at The National Children’s Hospital

I’m not the type of person to help or even have a soft heart when it comes to humanity. No, I’m not cruel, I just prefer helping out animals instead. I know I made up my mind about it but, life has a funny way in turning things around.

It was last Saturday when my significant other, decided to join Jerald Uy’s Comic Book Drive, at the National Children’s Hospital. This charity event is on its second year already. And I can’t help but feel thankful that a guy like him, along with his volunteers, donors / sponsors and fellow cosplayers, took their time to visit and give out free comics and food.
