Philips Avent has been my partner since I got pregnant with my daughter in 2007. I just love the quality of their products. My daughter and son also love the new Natural Avent bottles. That's why, every year, we visit the LJS Bodega Sale to get their best deals ever. 

This year, there will be lots of brands that'll be joining the said event and you could enjoy great discounts. And Philips AVENT products will be up to 50% OFF.

So I'll see you at the LJS Warehouse Sale 2013 on November 7-10, 2013 at LJS Warehouse, 3555 Magistrado Arellano St., Bacood, Sta Mesa, Manila.

My Little Angel named Sean Kristof

My apologies to my dear followers for not being able to update my blog for the last 3 months or so.

It's been almost 3 months since I had my miscarriage with my third child. Honestly, I don't really like talking about it to anybody but I just want to share the dream I had before I lost my baby.

I found out I was pregnant on the last week of June, though no embryo yet. I had to wait till July 16 to make sure there's a baby before I break the news to everyone. My doctor even told me that day to have a 1-2 weeks bedrest -- as in total bedrest. I was only allow for bathroom break. But I lost him the next day.

This was the last part of my dream. I could hardly move from the embrace of a little boy that I had to start calling my husband in my dream. He heard me calling him "Dad!" again and again. He woke me up and I started to feel the blood flowing so I rushed to the bathroom. Then, I lost my baby.

My husband thought that the baby in my dream was our baby. Many believed that it was his way of saying goodbye to me.

I know he was a boy... so I want to name him "Sean Kristof".

I prayed and wanted him to know that he may not be planned but he's not unwanted. I don't want any child to feel unwanted. I'm just glad he was able to hug me to say goodbye. I still tell him that we -- his dad, me and his Ate Mhia & Kuya Dominic -- love him so much.

I really would like to thank my husband and my 2 kids for being super supportive with our 3rd baby. They were the most supportive along with my office friends.

Bullying & Racism: Not A Laughing Matter

As I read from Nica Bells blog, The Video That Started It All, I felt bad on how Katherine Ryan (twitter: @Kathbum) used Filipino children to mock a cosmetic company.

A great comedian uses their creative minds to make people laugh without the need to hurt others' feelings, and trying hard comedians just simple bully other people to do that. Why not use themselves (or their own race, perhaps) as a joke to make people laugh, and not those innocent children? Remember what Eleanor Roosevelt said, "Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people." 

Too bad these kind of people think they got sense of humor, but they just don't have it. I guess we have to understand, it not easy to be smart and funny at the same time, and only few got that. But it's always been so easy to pick on someone else, and they think it's funny! What she did was bullying by being a racist. >:(
An excerpt from The Game of Humor: A Comprehensive Theory of Why We Laugh by Charles R. Gruner

I'm a mom and bullying innocent children is a BIG NO-NO! And Race-related joke is overly offensive, especially when placing Filipino children, or any children, lower than the animals. >:(

Nokia Lumia 920 Soon At Abenson

Switching from the regular Nokia phone (the one with soft keypad) to a touchscreen one, Nokia N8, wasn't a problem since I've been a Nokia user since the summer of year 2000. I was in college back then and Nokia 5110 was just on trend.

With all the Nokia phones that I had, I love the N8 the most. I had this 2 months before I gave birth to my son back in February 2010. And I had to rush my network provider since I had to go on maternity leave any time during those times, and they offered me this new Nokia phone.

I took our first photos together with this phone, and I won't give this up for any other smartphones, especially with its 16GB of in-built storage and 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens and Xenon flash.

But when I heard about Nokia Lumia 920 late last year, I know my life with Nokia is just getting better. And I'm so excited that one of my network provider's retention program is due this year.

I was actually looking forward on bringing home one yesterday when I visited Abenson at The New Glorietta (and just get rebates on my retention program) but it won't be available till April 2013.

Awww. I was kinda upset but I was able to try it anyway so I was so contented with what I have to experience with the new Nokia Lumia 920.

I also tried the Nokia Lumia 820 and Lumia 620 but I spent more time with Lumia 920.

This Windows Phone 8 handset is so gorgeous with the 4.5-inch screen and 32GB storage. I just love the 8.7MP PureView camera with Carl Zeiss lens, which allows me to take blur-free photos of my playful kids. That I've been itching to try. :) It will be very useful during my travels, too. ;)

Having the dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, I'm expecting this Lumia to do more, to have better performance than other smartphones. I wasn't able to try that since the live unit at the store doesn't have that much apps installed though. :)

Anyway, I just missed the perks offered by Abenson when shopping for the latest gadgets.

You could visit the ff. Abenson branches and get exclusive freebies on your purchase:

ABENSON - The New Glorietta
3rd Level The New Glorietta, Ayala Center Makati City
Tel. No.: 621 1130

ABENSON - Shangri-La Plaza
GF Shangri-La Plaza, Mandaluyong City
Tel. No.: 638 8017

ABENSON - Avant Trinoma
2nd Level Avant Trinoma Mall, Quezon City
Tel. No.: 901 3551

I hope Abenson will have new perks when Nokia Lumia 920 becomes available this April 2013. I'm sure they'll do. I'm keeping my fingers crossed! :)

What's Your 10 SULIT MUST-HAVE’S? Start The Year Right With SULIT.COM.PH

Every year, we have our long list of needs and wants. But have you thought of your Top 10 items that will make big changes to your life this 2013? Like a new heavy-duty laptop that will help you start a business you are very passionate about or any things that would make your daily life at home convenient.

Well, I have a few important items that I've been eyeing this year that I find as good deals thru Sulit.Com.Ph. I did double check the prices & details. ;)  

Ever since I was a kid, our family do a lot of land travel. We love and enjoy travelling a lot in convoy until now that I already have my own family.

But It's hard to travel in a sedan car especially that I have 2 kids (a preschooler & a toddler) so on top of my list is a SUV -- Honda CRV (http://sulit.com.ph/6526520/).

And, of course, it's my priority to keep my little ones safe during travels so I'll be needing a Toddler Car Seat for my 1-year old son -- Chicco Toddler Car Seat

During travels, I love to capture every moment my kids have. I also love to take every milestones they have and keep them. A good DLSR camera will help me with this. Nikon D5200 will do perhaps. (http://sulit.com.ph/8101181/)

To maximize every beautiful photos I've taken, I'll be needing a heavy duty laptop to make those moments more fun & vibrant with photoshop. That's why I'll be needing a MacBook Pro. ;)

This laptop won't only help me with my photos but also with the sideline job I'm planning to have... to sew my kids costumes for different events like school performance or costume parties.

I order for me to be able to do costumes not only for my kids but other students as well who needs one, I'll be needing a sewing machine. :)

I also wish to make our househelp's life easier at home. So I'm thinking of getting a Vacuum Cleaner. Besides, we need to minimize the dust at home to reduce my kids' asthma attacks. :)

Another home appliance I've been wanting to win thru raffle during those advertisers' events we had last year is a Twin Tub Washing Machine so we don't have to pay the laundry shop P25/kilo who don't really provide good service.

This I want for my kiddo.

My son will be turning 2 years old this April and I want to train him, not only to potty, but to pee so I'm considering of getting him a Pee Trainer (Urinal for Toddlers).

I'm not forgetting my kids' wishes they asked from their Lola Beck & Lolo Pew since December 2012 -- a Ride On Car for John & a Ride On Motorbike for Mhia. We haven't bought them yet since the malls' high prices aren't practical. And I found these cheaper thru Sulit.Com.Ph.

These are few of the items I wanted from Sulit.Com.Ph. ;)

Kayo? Ano hanap nyo? Don't hesitate to comment the top 10 things on your list (just the name of the item and the link of the ad from Sulit.com.ph) with your full name, Facebook profile URL (or Twitter ID).

Operation Timbang in Brgy. Bangkal

My apologies to my readers. I wasn't able to take the photo of the child being weighed since the cab was moving. The wooden apparatus in the pic is used for measuring the height of the children. The one they used for measuring the weight of the kids is made of metal like the water piper (leftmost part of the pic). You can check the photos at National Nutrition Council's website)
