Crawling and Playing at the Floor

January 26, 2012 1 Comments

When my Queen turned 9 months old, she now learned how to crawl and since then
she preferred to be off hands with her. All she wants is to play 
and play at the floor. Learning how to move forward and backward 
through crawling.  Then one day she learned also how to open and close the drawer in her back
(see the photo)
When we're at the room, she always go there 
and play with it. When she got pinned in it, you won't hear her 
crying, she just shout and asking for attention. hehehehe
She's brave and I noticed that she's kind of bitch and a brat. hahaha
My baby is now exploring the house. 
Our house became so messy since Queen and her ate Ashley joined 
force to make litter inside. They both throw things in their hands.
The toys bought by their Aunt Monica always get destructed immediately. :)
There are a lot of times they have rivalry. They both cried, too.

I can't imagine, time really does fly so fast, and after nine months ,my Queen knows
now how to depend herself on the things she wants and don't like.
She's trying to stand up on her own. I'm afraid she might fall, so I'm asking my sister
and my mom to be all eyes with my baby.
I'm so sorry for her because I haven't bought her the crib I'm wishing for 
so that she has guide on standing alone.

Me and my Queen. I played with her if I'm off to work.

Sometimes, I feel sad when my Queen doesn't want to come with me.
I understand because I'm not always around her. I always think of quitting my job, but not yet.
We don't have stable income or sources of income.
We only depend on my basic salary. That's why I have to continue working and be patient
until the time comes our business stand out.

She looks angry birds.. hehe

Thanks a lot God, my baby continues to grow healthy and learning more.
Please always guide her until she grows up. May she become a good girl and smart as well.

Three months from now, she's turning one.
 I'm excited but at the same time confuse on the coming days 
because I don't have savings and I don't know how to celebrate it. 
I hope we could fix things out before that day comes.
 I know, God won't allow us to be sad. He will do things right. I have faith. 
Thank you Lord for all the things you've given us and for the coming blessings.

Dream Porsche!

January 26, 2012 1 Comments

WooooooooooooW! To the highest level!!! It's a big fulfillment I've seen a real PORSCHE! Who wouldn't dreaming of a luxury car like that? I'm not an exception. I saw and touch a real PORSCHE last Tuesday, January 24, 2012. That was the day of  Royale Business Club International, Inc., Baliuag Branch 1st Anniversary and we hope for a lot more years to come. 
I saluted our top mentor for being so humble to let us captured some photos with his car. I told him that we are hoping to have a Porsche someday. And he said "Just believe in your dreams. Do your best! Gawin mo lang si Royale." Here's some of our photos with the Porsche (sorry, the pictures were blurred, I really need to have DLSR.. hehe)

It's me! So proud that I got the chance to touched the Porsche.
I really can't believe it! 
Being a Royalista can make things happen.

My husband have been so glad also that the Porsche was there attended the anniv.
I let him posed and took a 3 shots as a remembrance because not everyday you 
will encounter the owner of this car.

As a member of Royale, this chances should never let pass by.
That's why I was kinda regretful coz' I did not sit at the driver's side of the car to experience the feeling. So sayang talaga. But I hope this won't be the last time.

The words of wisdom that came from our top mentors seems to be an inspiration to work hard and do our best with Royale. We entered a copy business so we have to do what they did to achieve what we want for our life. 

One to two years from now, if we attend a lot of trainings and learned to run the business, maybe we can also buy our own wheels, even if it's not a Porsche at least we're able to ride in our own car.

So just believe and follow your dreams!
To God be the Glory!

Set of Nail Polish From Caronia Philippines

January 14, 2012 2 Comments

I've received my prize from Caronia Philippines, last January 12, 2012 exactly I got home from work. A set of nail polish was I received from them. See the photo attached.

My Elder sister Rochelle who accepted it from the carrier (LBC) and used to be nail polish lover was so excited to open the package and wants to immediately apply to her fingernails. hehehe

I'm kinda selfish.. so bad. I told her "tomorrow". Until now, we haven't start to use the nail polish. But maybe on weekends, we'll do clean our fingernails and do a nail art.

On the other side, i have a good heart,
my Eldest sister Grace ask to have the cute 
notepad and I let it be hers. I love my sisters and so I love to share my blessings to them.

My husband who happened to be against my joining, still happy that I got my prizes from winnings. I love you Daddy. 

I'm doing this not only because of pleasure but because it's free and I need it. hahaha

Thank you again my Dear Lord God.. More winnings to come!

It so nice to start a New Year!

January 05, 2012 0 Comments
 Yes! Yehey! I won again and it's from Caronia Philippines! I was picked as one of the 5 winners of Caronia's website promotion for the month of December. Another surprise came on me. I thought it was just a spam until I finished reading the email and surprised me that it was real. Nobody knows if you're going to win in a contest. I just took the chance of answering in one
of their monthly questions and there's a chance to win a featured gift pack from Caronia products. Actually, I also answered  November question but i didn't win. Thank you Lord and December 2011 for the winnings I have to cherished with all my heart and to be worth remembering.

Here's the email I've received:

I thank God again for giving me this another gift, at least 
that way I am receiving a Christmas and New Year's gift. 
To be honest, I haven't received any gifts from my family and friends. Hahaha well, it's okay but instead they gave the gifts to my baby Queen. 

Next time, I will do my very best in joining contest to win again,
again, again.....and again.

Happy New Year and Happy 9th Months Day Baby Queen!

January 04, 2012 0 Comments

My baby Queen wearing her Aunt Rochelle's gift
 on Christmas Day.
A pink blouse with sleeve and pink leggings 
fitted to her thighs and legs 
with also the gold shoes from 
her Mamita Iluminada, paired with pink socks.

This was also the day we were celebrating 
Queen's 9th months day. 
We, Mitch & Niño, proud parents of Queen
were very glad to see that our baby is
learning to stand up on her own.
She's not yet successful doing it because it's
kinda complicated, she might get hurt specially
if there's no one will look after her.
We haven't yet buy her a crib.
I would love to buy her but sadly,
 i really don't have a budget for it.:)

Anyways, so happy that now my baby can sit alone.
No need for support. Then, she became more
noisy, talkative and likes to repeat what you're doing.
And she loves dancing to the tune of 
Super Bass by Nicki Minaj.

We went to one of our Godparents house and we let our baby sit
at their small rocking chair. She really had fun.
And because I'm busy taking photos of my Queen and her Daddy,
I forgot to capture mine with them my lovely loves.

This was taken in our house @ the terrace.

 I love my baby's smile here.^^

New Year's Eve, my baby was still sleepy.
But I'm proud that she's so brave and didn't cry 
during the fireworks display.
I know some babies get frightened of the sounds 
of the fireworks but my baby didn't.

Queen, Ate Grace, Ashley and Kuya Marlon

Sorry for this blurred photo. I'm only using my phone. I 
badly needed a digital camera.. haha
I hope someone with a good heart give me any brand
of camera. I wish, wish, wish!, baby Queen, me and my eldest sister Grace..

Me and my baby Queen

eating time and blowing the candle of Queen's cake.
(thanks to her Aunt Monica for the cute, 
small cake but yummy one)

Each moment in a day has its own value. Morning brings HOPE, Afternoon brings FAITH, Evening brings LOVE, Night brings REST, Hope you will have all of them everyday.

Happy New Year To All!:)
I hope this year will be much, much better year for us.
May our baby continue to have a good health together with our family and friends.

Welcome 2012!
