I’ve always envied my dad when it comes to cooking. He can easily whip up and cook anything using whatever ingredient he finds in our pantry or fridge. No, he didn’t go to any culinary school. He says, he just learned it from grandma. But I think, it’s just pure talent.
How I wish I got his cooking genes! I know how to cook, but only simple dishes. I’d love to be able to “really” cook for my loved ones!

I hope he’s not reading this. Otherwise, I’ll have to think of something else to give him. Haha!

Since Sean turned 6 months old, we (actually I) have (seriously) started thinking about and planning his first birthday party. The theme would definitely be F1 – that’s non-negotiable according to hubby.
We already have a couple of venues in mind. I’ve already inquired about party items and services from a number of suppliers. I’ve also started looking at some promotional products for ideas on possible souvenirs/lootbag items.
What I’m having a hard time on is thinking of souvenirs/lootbag items for the girls since F1 is more of a boy’s theme. Any ideas/suggestions? Let me know if you think of something, okay?! :)

My cousin K just came back from a week long vacation in the US. She went to visit her dad who celebrated his birthday last September 8th. While there, she also visited our grandmother who, as I previously blogged, had a stroke.
She had lots of stories to tell about her vacation, especially since it has been some time since she last saw her parents and her sister. She also had an update about our grandma.
K says that grandma is okay and is doing fine, although, sometimes, she tends to forget things. There are times when she would wear her sweater inside out, or wear her sweater such that the back is at her front. And she would not realize what she has done until someone points it out to her. K says that this has become quite a concern for our aunts/uncles taking care of grandma. Grandma might hurt herself eventually if she keeps on forgetting things. And since she’s already showing signs of being absentminded, she might just wander off by herself and forget where she lives.
Times like these, it would be good if a medical alert were sent to her caretakers so that they can immediately know if something bad has happened to her. I know there are devices available in the market that can send such medical alerts. Maybe I should suggest this to my aunts/uncles.

How time flies! It seems like it was just a few weeks ago that I gave birth to Sean. Then he turned 6 months old yesterday!
To celebrate the occasion, we bought him a tiramisu cheesecake (he’s not eating yet anyway… hihihi…) from Banapple.
We also officially started feeding him with solids… we gave him cereals (banana with milk flavor) and he really liked it. He even grabbed the spoon from me!
Now that he’s 6 months old, he’s started to become really active. I wonder if I’ll need to take energy pills soon to keep up with him. Teehee!

As I previously blogged, cousin P is getting married this month – on September 10th to be exact, just a couple of days away. Caitlin is one of the flower girls and we’re really excited! This is her second time to be a flower girl.
She fitted her gown a couple of weeks ago. And just this past weekend, we dropped by cousin P’s house to pick up the finished gown.
Here she is trying the dress on a few weeks ago.
We let her try on the dress again last night and tried to figure out how we will fix her hair for the occasion. Hehehe…
Here she is trying the dress on (again), with matching curlers in her hair
She's really excited! And she's been practicing walking down the aisle :)
Anyway, I remember when hubby and I were planning our own wedding 5 years ago. It took as more than a year to prepare. I had lists and lists of things to do. I was very particular with my wedding dress. I am on the heavy side so I really wanted to make sure that I look good in my gown.
I searched for the perfect dress. I looked at catalogs for bridal dresses that would suit my taste. I went to bridal boutiques and tried on some wedding dresses. I even took pictures of myself so I can decide later on what my dress’s final design would be. I also looked at bridesmaid dresses because I want my female entourage to look beautiful in their gowns.
When I finally met with my designer, I had a fairly good idea of what I want. So, here's my wedding dress.
I really loved it! :)

Last August 21, Caitlin (along with her classmates and teachers from KIDS Academy) went on a mini-fieldtrip to the Marikina Fire Station. Neither Hubby nor I could take the day off work so Mama Sit (my mom) was the one who accompanied her during the trip.
My mom took pictures so she could show us how the fieldtrip went.
I was surprised to see that the fire station had a mascot!
A fire-"woman" welcomed them and toured them around the station. They were also given an opportunity to wear a fireman's helmet and hold the water hose.
My mom says Caitlin had fun! :)
When I think about it, being a fireman, or a firewoman for that matter, is not an easy job. It's even a hazardous one. I wonder if all of them have insurance, like those from Key Man Insurance. I'm not sure how insurance companies cover people with perilous jobs such as theirs.
Anyway, more pictures here.

Munchkin Mommy tagged me with this meme. Thanks Weng!
a. List these rules on your blog.
b. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog.
c. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. You'll have to read on for my 7 facts and see who I tagged.
My 7 facts:
1. I auditioned for a part in a movie (for Regal Films) when I was around 6-7 years old. My Aunt N really wanted to have at least a niece or a nephew (if she can't have any of her children) in show business. when she found out about the audition, she took all of us (read: her children, nieces, and nephews) with her and made us audition for the part. Unfortunately, not one of us passed. Haha!
2. I am the eldest and the only girl in a brood of three.
3. I graduated with a degree in Business Administration but have been in the IT industry since I graduated. Go figure! Haha!
4. I married my first and only boyfriend :)
5. I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) in 1998. We knew we'd have a difficult time conceiving. But God is good. We now have a beautiful daughter and a cute baby boy.
6. I had complications with my 2 pregnancies. I had placenta previa with my first, which left me no choice but to deliver via C-Section. Then, on my second, I had pregnancy-induced Hypertension (PIH) which required me to carry a portable blood pressure monitor with me all the time to monitor my blood pressure levels. Thankfully, I didn't have additional complications when I gave birth.
7. I really, really, REALLY want to be a stay-at-home mom or a work-at-home mom. I'm getting tired of the corporate world. Hehehe...
Seven friends I'm tagging: Che, Jeanny, Dyes, Haze, Arlene, Toni, Cynch.
