been tryin' to shed those unwanted fats i gained during my last pregnancy. need to do something to fit into my jeans again! so, what have i been doing to get rid of those flabs?

the moment i wake up (before i put on my make-up {heehee}- i love that song!), i prepare my alkaline fix - juice of 3 calamansi or half lemon in 1 liter of water (normal temp). i drink that while preparing my son's packed lunch, before taking coffee or any solid food.

i eat a really heavy breakfast. because i skip lunch. if i get hungry, that usually comes around 2 pm, i eat crackers or whatever we have for merienda. could be bread but usually root crops {sometimes, from the garden}, like, camote, cassava or gabi, or banana, and 1 cup of hot green tea or coffee.

at around 4-5pm, i play badminton with kuya for 30 mins or more. and as much as we can, we eat dinner before 6pm. i eat whatever is our viand with a half cup of rice. right after dinner, i drink a hot cup of ABS (bitter herbs) tea or lipton milk tea.

i'd like to believe that i'm getting positive results. because i was able to wear two of my smaller sized jeans already! yehey! but hey! i still need to fit into that size 26 much smaller sized jeans! (harhar...dream on!)

and oh! about the calamansi rind - i blend it with lotsa water. and use it for any of the following:
  • *watering some of our potted plants
  • *washing the dishes by mixing it to the dishwashing liquid
  • *washing/rinsing my hair/body
  • *and this, my favorite - for my footspa! i do that at night while watching. then, because my feet tend to get dry most of the time, i apply petroleum jelly just before going to bed.

chinese food

dad and i made a quick trip down the hill and had lunch here...

since it was just the two of us,
and i skip lunch most of the time,
i just ordered these...

yang chow fried ricedad said, this is better than mann-hann's yang chow

lemon chicken
i'd say fooyiu's is a lot better!

chicken feet
it's dad's favorite.
i do not eat chicken feet.
but when i tasted the sauce,
it's masarap!

i asked the waiter what's their specialty - seafood daw.
i took a picture.
dad and i were so curious
as to why the fish were positioned like that.
did you notice?
one fish on the left side and the rest on the right side.
ah... care to humor me and caption the last pic?

King Bee Chinese Food
Marcos Hiway near cor Sumulong Hiway
Antipolo City

cost of the food above + 1 bottomless iced tea (php515.00)

oh christmas tree

it's that time of the year again.

what's it gonna be?
or this?

Sunday, November 2, 2008


because my son did something good i promised my him we will make some craft. so i gathered empty boxes ( i'm such a junk freak!) and created our own cardboard version of Wall-E!

materials used:
1 big milk box for the body
1 big tootpaste box for the arms and hands
2 round fasteners for the arms
7 tissue tubes for the eyes/head, neck and feet
1 paper towel tube to hold the feet
masking tape and scotch tape

*the neck can be rotated because i placed a smaller tube {inside that neck} attached to the body
*the arms can be rotated because of the round fastener
*the feet, unfortunately, can't roll. i so wanted to make it roll but my powers are limited :D.

what do you think? crappy?

pink saturday :: ouch!

first, let me thank everyone who helped me pray for my husband when he took the bar exam. sorry i was not able to visit you last month. but i'm back, and i'll make sure to drop by your site.

and here's my entry for this saturday...
my little girl's "ouch" that she got when she was accidentally pushed by her playmate while playing outside our house. good thing this pink band-aid was in my kit to cover the wound after i cleaned it with hydrogen peroxide and application of an ointment.

Happy Pink Saturday!

pink saturday :: hugs

i sure need some GREAT BIG HUG today!
(though i think my husband needs it more than i do)

i'm sorry to the other pink ladies whose site i was not able to visit. i'm pretty "tied-up" to daddy's little girl. making sure she does not disturb her dear daddy from studying.

the big day is on sunday. and all the sundays of september. i can already feel the 'tension'. so please, please be a sweetie and kindly include him in your prayers - that his mind be rested, his body energized, and his spirit inspired to pass the bar exam.

thank you everyone!

happy pink saturday!

something's brewin'...

...inside this bag.
i just hope i'll be able to finish it soon -
for a friend i met thru my other blog.
