Feast One Hundred and Fifty Eight

Who is the easiest person for you to talk to?

My husband because even if I don’t have to explain to him what I’m talking about, he gets it and understands right away.

If you could live in any ancient city during the height of the quality of its society and culture, which one would you choose?

Egypt … I don’t know … I just felt that I’ll gonna love it there.

What is the most exciting event you’ve ever witnessed?

Our wedding … nothing excites me than marrying the man of my life.

Main Course
If you were a celebrity, what would you do for a publicity stunt?

Kiss a celebrity bachelor on the lips in a presscon or movie premiere.

What do you consider the ideal age to have a first child?

25 years old… but for me, it’s NOW (coz I’m already 29 hehehe!)

Hay badtrip!

Today I was scheduled to have my TVU with follicular monitoring. This isn't the first time I had my follicular monitoring. My first was last month. My OB told me to have it in FEU Hospital. And since it's only a 10 minute drive away from home, I agreed.

At first, akala namin konti lang ang patients. When I went up to the receptionist, she told me I'm patient no. 10 na daw and kakaumpisa palang ng procedure kay Patient no. 1. We paid for the procedure and waited for my turn. We were there at around 4:00pm.

At 5:00 p.m., Jason became a little bit cranky (mainipin kasi) already, asking bakit ang tagal daw. So I went inside to talk to some interns. They told me they're already with Patient no. 5. Lima nalang pala, so hinintay na namin. Nung malapit na mag-6pm, naiinis na si Jason, kasi 2 hours na kami naghihintay at di pa din kami tinatawag. Yung mga katabi namin eh sila pa din katabi namin. Meaning wala pa natatawag ni isa sa amin. Pumasok ulit ako ... si Patient no. 7 hindi pa pala tapos, at si Patient no. 6 pa din ang inu-ultrasound. I asked again, pang-ilan pa ako? Sabi nung intern ... pang-apat pa daw ako pero may sisingit from ER na ultrasound din. Huwat??? Actually hindi lang isa ang insiningit ... dalawa pa. SOP kasi nila na priority yung mga in-patients. So sabi ni Jason i-refund ko na ang pera namin at umalis na.

So I did, and texted my OB na hindi na ako magpapa-ultrasound ever sa FEU. Super tagal ng services nila grabe! Naloloka ako. The first time I went there naman, na-late yung OB Sonologist ng 2 hours. So late na siya nag-procedure ... eh pang-number 14 ako nun. Buti nalang some of them already backed-out. Kaya naging pang-lima na ako. But this time, hindi ko na ma-take talaga. Hindi na ako magpapa-ultrasound dun sobra! Stress na nga ako dahil nahihirapan kami magka-anak... lalo pa ako na-stress sa kanila! Sish!

Our Wedding Video

Click image for larger view

Finally, our wedding DVD has arrived in our doorstep last Friday Morning (Ang bilis talaga ng LBC). I paid our balance to Dan Pamintuan last Thursday thru bank.

I told myself that if I would feel the same emotions to what I've felt during our wedding day while watching this DVD, I'll give Dan a high supplier rating. Well, 95% of my emotions that day naramdaman ko while watching it. And when mom and dad watched it, naiyak ulit sila wahahaha! Dan, you're the man! Hahaha!

At first I didn't like the cover. Was expecting that he'll use a photo of me and Jason as bride and groom. He used the prenup shot from his cam ... pero ok naman sa akin. Importante yung laman. Madali palitan yung cover hehehe!

And kainis din nung medyo sa speech ng Dad ni Jason, there was this irritating static sound from a cellphone. I asked Dan bakit ganun. He said, yung isa daw sa guest namin na katabi nila nung kinukunan kami, yun daw yung gumagamit ng cellphone. SOP nila na pag nasa shoot naka-off yung cellphone.

There were things that were never caught on still photos, but were captured by this moving video. We made a misalette for the priest and I've found out that we forgot to take off the price tag of the folder his using. Kakahiya, nakita sa video hahaha. And no matter how I've tried, hindi naitago yung baby fats around my neck (shocks kakahiya!). And when we're doing the first dance as a couple, we've found out that our pace was a little bit faster than the song itself. Hahaha! Mukha pala kaming clown nun hahaha! Super bungisngis pala ako nung wedding day namin. There's no moment na nakasimangot ako... parang high ako na di maintindihan. Tawa ng tawa. And my voice is different when I'm talking on the mic. Hay o hay bat ganun? Hahaha! And si Jsson lagi naka-smile ... dun ko lang siya nakita na lagi naka-ngiti. Kaya wag ka na magtaka Labs kung wala kang mata lagi sa pictures hehehe!

Again, I've watched how my Dad delivered his speech and made me cry again for the second time. And also my father-in-law's speech to us was again another tear-jerking one. I cried again not because of the speech but on how my husband cried with it. It's so touching ... I don't like men crying because it makes me cry as well. Besides that, our dear friend Allan, who was our emcee that time left a very good message for us and our guest. Let me share to you an excerpt of his speech.

"I've know Jason since highschool and Sheryl for quite sometime now. And this two are the happiest people ... one of the happiest people I've known. So I'm sure that this relationship will go on forever because they are meant for each other. A lot of times sabi ng mga magulang natin, yung mga nauna sa atin, yung mga mas matanda sa atin ang sinasabi that one of the secret to a happy marriage is to laugh it out ... have a good sense of humor. And both of you have that... you are so lucky to have so much love around you..."

So the verdict ... I give Dan Pamintuan a 9 (rating of 1-10). Bakit 9, kasi sabi niya in 5 months time makukuha ko na yung finished product. Dapat June ko makukuha yun, umabot pa ng August. Actually di pa kumpleto, to follow pa yung raw footages ... on the way na ata... hay o hay! Tagal joke! Now, I can say I'm another happy Dan Pamintuan bride :) It's worth the wait.

According to Medifocus Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) also known as Stein-Leventhal syndrome or functional ovarian hyperandrogenism, is a complex endocrine disorder associated with a long-term lack of ovulation (anovulation) and an excess of androgens (male hormones, e.g., testosterone).

The disorder is characterized by the formation of eight or more follicular cysts of 10 mm or smaller in the ovaries, a process related to the ovary's failure to release an egg (ovum). PCOS is one of the most frequent causes of infertility.

I had it eversince, my first OB didn't see this all along. And I'm glad I made the right decision on changing my OB. This is the reason why we're having a hard time to get pregnant. Right now I'm on medication. I'm taking Metformin 500 mg 3 times a day. Know side effects of this medicine is dizziness, nauseous, drowsiness and headache. My OB said that I could take Metformin even hindi pa ako kumakain. Pero sa akin, it doesn't work. Super nag-throw up talaga ako sa super sakit ng ulo ko. And iba nag chemical reaction pag magkasama silang iniinom ng Clomid (Chlophemine Citrate). Nagkaroon din ako ng vertigo kaya natatakot ako lumakad mag-isa pag may pupuntahan. Gusto ko may kasama. Saka I do sweat a lot... isa daw sa symptoms yun na I'm having low blood sugar. Sabi ni Kuya Jade and OB, just take a glass of Coke to normalize my blood sugar. It really works sometimes.

And since I'm on treatment, hubby is taking Korgivit-E 3 times a day to normalize the motility of his sperm cells. Kumbaga pinapahanda na sa kanya para healthy ang mga punla niya.

And OB also told me to try again to lose some weight ... easier said than done ... I'm really having a hard time losing weight. And eto pa, because of Metformin, super dalas ako mag-weewee na super nadedehydrate ang skin ko. My derma told me to moisturize and take lots of fluids. Pag nafi-feel ko na daw na natutuyo na lalamunan ko, drink a glass of water agad. I have atopic dermatitis (excessive dryness of the skin) and I'm allergic to my own sweat ... so how can I go on a working out in a gym when after that my body is all red and itchy because of my sweat? waaaaaaahhhh! Ang hirap no?

Buti nalang I'm a SAHW ... if ever I'm working... siguro dumadami na ang leave ko dahil hindi na ako makapagtrabaho because of my treatment. As you can see, gagawin ko ang lahat magkaanak lang kami. Sana nga tulungan kami ng Diyos na malagpasan namin ang pagsubok na ito.

Feast One Hundred & Fifty Seven

Say there’s a book written about your life. Who would you want to narrate the audio version?

The one doing the Harry Potter audio CD... don't know who he is. But he's such a super effective narrator :)

Take the letters from your favorite kind of nut and write a sentence. (Example: Perhaps every avenue needs understanding today.)

Another long month of no driving. (hmmm... did I make sense? hahaha)

If you could go back in time and spend one week in another decade, which decade would you choose?

The time when I was still a kid ... it's so nice to be a kid again.

Main Course
Name a song that brings back memories for you.

So It's You by: Christian Bautista ... whenever I hear it, it brings back the time how me and my husband met. And the rest is history.

Do you prefer to wash your hands in cold water or warm water?

Warm water

The Lazy Bug strikes again!

Sorry guys for not updating much ... been so lazy this past few days. Maybe because of my recent medication. I was diagnosed with PCOS 3 weeks ago. This week my OB changed my dosage of Metformin from twice a day to thrice a day. I feel too nauseous and super nahihilo talaga. Hay o hay ang hirap ng pinagdadaanan ko. Pero kahit ano gagaiwn ko magkaanak lang kami promise!

I'll try to blog as mush as possible. Please bear with me :) mwah!

Feast One Hundred and Fifty Six

Describe your laundry routine. Do you have a certain day when you do it all, or do you just wash whatever you need for the next day?

We do the laundry on Wednesdays and Saturdays. So that all our clothes won't pile up.

In your opinion, what age will you be when you’ll consider yourself to truly be old?

hmmm... maybe when I'm already 65.

What is one of your goals? Is it short-term, long-term, or both?

I'm a kind of person who doesn't plan at all. I just go with the I can say all I have now is only for a short term basis.

Main Course
Name something unbelievable you’ve seen or read lately.

hmmm ... pass hihihi!

Matapobre Ba o Nagpapakatotoo lang?

Have you heard about Malu Fernandez's article? It's spreading rapidly on the web. You might be wondering what it is all about? Well, you gotta read this. Actually I've read all about it through Wella's blog. While I was reading it, I could feel my blood pressure rising a little bit. Nakakairita kasi. Ok enough suspense ... if you still want to read about it, I got a link from a friend's email to me about this article. It's all HERE. Sa mga buntis... wag nyo na basahin... I don't want to cause any stress to you and your baby. Seriously...

Tapos na? So how do you feel about that? Here's mine ...

I'm sure by now, she's all smiling and laughing her hearts out. Feeling sikat siya ... Just like what happened to Wendy ... the PBB Season 2 b!tch! Well, all I can say to her is mag-ingat siya ... naranasan mo na ba makaladkad pababa sa escalator? Nakatali ka at hinihila ka pababa pero yung humihila sa iyo nasa baba, tapos yung direction nung escalator is going up?

O naranasan mo na rin bang talupan ka ng buhay tapos ibabad ka sa isang drum ng pure calamansi extract without the sugar? At least you'll never have problems on taking Vitamin C anymore.

O naranasan mo na rin bang buhusan ka ng honey at ipakagat ka sa bubuyog na kasinglaki ni Jollibee?

I'm telling you ... you're not that smart, sosy and mabango as you think. If you and your friends thought that what you've written is funny ... well KAYO YUN, not me! Sino ba mga friends mo? Mga elitista din di ba? So ano ba naranasang hirap nun sa buhay? Wala!!! Common sense din po! Sa hindi mo kaibigan ipabasa yung article mo at hintayin mong reaction niya sa harapan mo. Para maranasan mo naman mahampas sa mukha ng magazine! Sana kung gagawin mo yan eh mataon na kamag-anak ng isang OFW ang bumasa ng article mo. Mata mo lang walang latay.

I'm not as articulate as you are, not as rich as you or anybody else. But I love how my parents brought me up. Hindi rin kami family of politicians para maging makatao. Nakakahiya ka ... mahiya ka sa magulang mo. I'm sure they didn't brought you up like that. Talagang matapobre ka!

A piece of advice ... since you have the money to buy expensive stuffs like LV and Jo Malone ... you probably have a lot of money para magpa-Liposuction. I'm not insulting you ... I wanted you to appreciate the beach. If you have a body to flaunt, might as well you'll gonna love Boracay. I don't have a sexy, gorgeous body ... actually I'm fat... but not as fat as you are... but I love the beach. If I have your money, I might do everything to get the body that I wanted. Too bad, I don't have that kind of money but I'm still happy.

And another thing ... REAL rich people are humble and down to earth ... astang biglang yaman ka. Saka obvious pala na mayaman ka ... kasi you're ... BIG! *wink*

Hehehe guys nainis ba kayo? Sorry ha, di ko sinasadya. Kasalanan ni Malu Fernandez yan hahaha! Who cares kung mabasa niya to ... It's my blog... and I'll say what I want to. Sorry ka nalang beh!

I love to hear what Thet would say about this post? Care enough to b!tch back? hehehe!

Doing What's Right

I've been married for 8 months now and having a new chapter in my life. I don't want things to go on with some heartaches that hasn't been healed. I don't want to keep the burden anymore ... I want to set myself free from all the pain.

I wrote a sorry letter to a friend whom I haven't spoken to in years. To make the very long story short, I've hurt her with the words I uttered to her before. You don't have to ask who was right and who was wrong, but the thing is I've hurt her in a way. Whatever her reply is, I'll share to you the outcome. All I need to do now is wait, wait until she's ready to forgive and forget just like what I did.

And also I started to speak to a friend whom I took for granted in a while. He's having the time of his life abroad. Earning lots and lots of money, going to a lot of places where a normal person like me don't usually do. Bought a brand new SUV for his Dad and Mom which a lot of children don't do or can't do. So maybe I thought he doesn't need me so I stopped sending emails, asking him how he is ... I know he's one happy man. But when I get to bumped into him through Friendster, he told me that he misses talking to me. So I figure it out, that maybe I should start talking to him again. You know how hard working in abroad di ba? So I told him, from now on I'll be sending him emails again.

There were a lot of people whom I wanted to talk to. But I'm taking one step at a time. I know it's hard magpakumbaba pero that's how my parents brought me up. Walang mawawala sa taong nagpapakumbaba. Bagkus ay nabibigyan pa nito ng bagong kahulugan ang buhay ng isang tao.

Buffalo Wings

This is a request from Heidi. As my birthday gift to her, I'm sharing this recipe I got from Actually, I've added some ingredients into it to make it more Filipino (you know, the tamis-anghang taste) and the preparation is quite a little different. Hope you try it ... this is good! And Heidi, hope you enjoy your birthday with this one.


oil for deep frying
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup hot sauce
1/4 cup Del Monte Pinoy BBQ Marinade
1 dash ground black pepper
2 tbps. McCormick (or similar) minced garlic
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
10 chicken wings
1 Lady's Choice Ranch Dressing for dipping


  1. Put the chicken wings in a pot. Add half a cup to one cup of vinegar and salt. Let it cook until it's half cooked or the liquid is almost dry. (Ano ang purpose nito? Para hindi bloody ang chicken. Have you experience eating fried chicken from a fastfood resto ... crispy from the outside, juicy and bloody on the inside ... eeewwww)
  2. Drain and let it drip for a while.
  3. In a plastic bag, mix together the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper and salt. Hold up the opening with your hand and shake/mix everything until the chicken are evenly coated. Seal and refrigerate for 60 to 90 minutes.
  4. Heat oil in pan. The oil should be just enough to cover wings entirely, an inch or so deep. Fry coated wings in hot oil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until parts of wings begin to turn brown. Set aside.
  5. Combine the butter, hot sauce, bbq marinade mix, pepper and minced garlic in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir together and heat until butter is melted and mixture is well blended. Remove from heat.
  6. Place one chicken wing at a time to the sauce mixture to coat evenly and place it to a serving dish.
  7. Place a small bowl for the ranch dressing for dipping.

Enjoy your buffalo wings! Tell me how it goes!

My First "Jamias" I.D.

My first ever Jamias I.D. hihihi! I got my Postal I.D. last Friday at Quezon City Hall. Grabe puro mukha ... ang laki ng picture eh 2x2 ba naman.

About SSS I.D.? hehehe tamad mode pa ako lakarin eh. Actually may sakit ako ngayon. Wala akong panlasa kaya wala ako gana kumain huhuhu! Sana gumaling na ako. I can't bare not to eat my fave food. May nagpadala pa naman kay dad ng isang kaing na santol from Camiguin. Super tam,is at sarap lalo na sa bagoong. Ngayon di ko na siya ma-appreciate because my nose is stuffed for almost 2 days now huhuhu. Wag muna kayo mabubulok. Hintayin nyo ako hehehe.

My in-laws went for a visit here yesterday. Actually, I ask Kuya Jade a favor to convince my dad to have his gall stones removed ASAP. Medyo chicken si Dad sa operation kasi kaya ayaw magpa-opera. Usapan nila ni Dad, papa-ultrasound daw siya ulit this week. Pag hindi pa din daw nakuha sa gamot papa-opera na daw siya. Hay, thank God! Mom prepared pinakbet, Jason prepared hinalabos na sugpo while me I cooked buffalo wings for dinner. Hindi kasi nila natikman yun nung pasko. Kaya nagluto ako para sa kanila. Well, mukha naman pumasa sa panlasa nila. Tinuruan din ako ni Kuya Jade mag-BP using a manual blood pressure equipment. Medyo nahirapan ako nung una, konting practice pa. For now, gamitin muna nila yung digital blood pressure equipment.

I've downloaded a skin for my blog. Problem is wala siyang comment box. Eh gusto ko sana magkaroon siya ng comment box ... pinag-aaralan ko pa (HTML codes) kung pano. Sana magawa ko. Wish me luck hehehe.

What is your favorite kind of pie?
Softcrust pies ... I love Apple pie and Blueberry pie.

Name something that made you smile this week.
A new funky watch my mom and Jason bought me. It's a very cheap watch really, but the watch bracelets were handmade that's made of wooden beads. Something nice to wear in any occassion.

What do you do to cool off when the weather is hot and humid?
If I don't have money, I just stay at home, in our room and turn on the aircon. If I have a lot of money to spend, we go to the mall and shop crazy, buy ice cream to cool us off.

Main Course
You receive $1,000 in the mail with a letter that says you can only use the money to redecorate one room in your home. Which room do you pick, and what do you buy to spruce it up?
Since I love to cook, I might splurge all the money in my kitchen. And maybe I'll buy myself a heavy duty mixer and a nice gas range and oven too.

Fill in the blank: My _________ says __________, but I __________.
My husband says that he'll gonna buy me my Harry Potter 7 book, but I think I'm gonna get it sooner than later.

This is part of my baby bro's birthday wish. He confessed to us that he never have any memories of himself going to the zoo. Hello? taba, nung bata tayo dinadala tayo nila Mommy sa Manila Zoo no. Di bale punta nalang tayo sa Avilon Zoo sa Taytay. I know this is not close on how he pictured what a zoo like. Walang lion, tiger at elephant. Paradizoo is a zoo farm. They breed and take care of different farm animals and nurture various trees, vegetables and flowers. It's situated in Mendez, Cavite ... few minutes away from Tagaytay. Let this photos tell you our experience to our visit in Paradizoo. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Bunso!

My brother Sherlloyd a.k.a. Butchoy or Lloyd celebrated his 25th birthday last Sunday with the whole family and his girlfriend. We had an afternoon full of fun and of course a lot of eating. We celebrated it in Tagaytay. I remember whenever he celebrates his birthday laging umuulan. Pero yesterday cloudy lang, pero di umulan hahaha! Kaya tuwang tuwa siya. We celebrate it in Tagaytay. We ate at RSM Lutong Bahay, a family favorite spot for food. We ordered fried tawilis (the best!!!), binagoongang talong, ensaladang talong, sisig, ginataang bia, pork barbecue, kare-kare, bulalo, laing and fried hito. FYI, pito lang kami umubos niyan ... imagine how stuff we were. Dessert? Wala na di na kaya eh, baka mag-threw up na kami. Happy birthday bunso! Matanda ka na kaya maghanap ka na ng trabaho joke! hehehe! mwah!

One of the reasons why we always go to Tagaytay is because of the good weather which is good for my allergies. Hindi malamig, hindi mainit. But have you tried going to Tagaytay on the month of January? Sweet! So breezy and so icy cool the wind is. It's much closer in Manila, in 2 hours you're already in Tagaytay. Another reason is that my Tito Jun bought a house and lot in Tagaytay wherein we supervise the construction and update him the status of the house. So far it's already 95% finished. Tito, kami ni Jason unang bibinyag ha? Joke! Actually, it's a family resthouse naman, hindi lang sa tito ko. Kaya we're so excited na din. Oh can't wait!

Our Wedding album

After 10 months of waiting, finally we got our wedding album. Paul texted me last Sunday (Aug. 5, 2007) that our album, blow up picture and 100 loose prints are now ready for pick up. Finally, wala na mangungulit sa akin na maghahanap kung asan na ang album dahil gawa na hahaha. I didn't know na bago na office ni Paul at Ivy. Dun pa din kaso sa kabilang street lang nga. Mas ok yung office niya ngayon kasi yung office niya before nakakahilo puntahan ... literally ... spiral staircase up to the 3rd floor! Can you imagine that?

Click image for larger view

It's placed in a hard box in a cushioned black bag. Biglang nag-flashback ang memories bigla. Ibig sabihin magaling talaga si Paul in capturing our moments. Now you can say that I'm another happy Paul Vincent bride. I love our album sobra! Mom said nga dadalhin nya na daw sa office nila para makita. Sabi ko ingatan nila, masyado mahal pa-duplicate nun hehehe. Ang sungit eh no?

Naku Paul, see you on our 25th wedding anniversary. Sana kaya pa din namin ang rate nyo hehehe.

Hmmm ... yung wedding video? Tanong nyo kay Shierdan Pamintuan, alam niya ang sagot. Kasi ako, I have no idea kung kailan niya ibibigay yun hehehe.

Identification card

I'm married to Jason for almost 10 months now, and I still haven't got any I.D. cards, not one, bearing my new surname. Why is that? I don't have a job so no company I.D. in hand. My driver's license is due on my birthday this year so I spared for a while my attempt to change my status and surname until December 2007. I didn't have the chance to apply for an SSS ID when I was still working. My kuya Stanley is going to SSS on Thursday or Friday to apply for his ID as well. Sasama ako sa kanya so that I could have my SSS ID bearing my new surname.

Today, I applied for my postal I.D. It took us two days to work on it because a slight of delay happened when we got our barangay clearance in our barangay. Nakarating kami sa barangay hall ng 12:30. Obviously, lunch time pa. 1:30 pa bumalik yung person na nag-aasikaso ng clearance. Problem pa, sira xerox nila, so we have to look for the nearest place to photocoy our documents. It also took another 30 minutes for the barangay captain to sign our postal I.D. form. Another factor was the rain ... kahit san kami mapunta eh umuulan huhuhu! After going to our baranggay hall, we go straight to NSO to claim our documents ... marriage certificate for me and birth certificate for my brother and his girlfriend. Grabe ang haba ng pila. Twice pa kami nasingitan. Mga nag-iinarte pa eh obvious na obvious na nga na sumisingit sila. Hindi nalang namin pinatulan. Bahala na si Lord sa kanila. Anyway, since 4:00pm na umuwi na kami at resume nalang tomorrow ulit.

Kanina naayos na namin lahat ng documents. Thumbmark nalang ang kulang. As usual, naabutan nanaman kami ng lunchtime. My bad coz nagising ako ng late. So late na din kami nakaalis ng bahay. Kaya pumunta muna kami kay Paul Vincent. After nun balik kami ng city hall... ayun ok na. Maki-claim na namin sa Thursday. Pero malamang sa Friday na namin kukunin. Coding ang kotse pag Thursday. I'm quite excited about this one. Oh can't wait!

No concealer would ever conceal her eyebags. I don't know how she got it. Maybe too much stress.

I strongly believe that there's nothing impossible with God.

I love malunggay. I really do ... kaso ang nakakainis lang sa pagluluto ng malunggay eh yung preparation. You have to get rid all the stalks para maging edible siya. Imagine mo naman kasi if you eat malunggay na di tinatanggal yung tangkay hehehe. Someone sent dad a whole native chicken already half cooked, ready to cook na kumbaga. Ilokano way of tinola does not consist of green papaya and dahon ng sili but malunggay and ampalaya. Weird ba? You should try it, its so masarap. Pero it's best cooked with native chicken only ... we've tried it using the common chicken you buy in supermarket, hindi siya ganun kasarap.


Congratulations to EJ Litiatco for giving birth to a bouncing baby boy. So gwapong baby ... sana sa amin din ganun ka-gwapo ang maging baby namin hehehe.


I failed to watch the 1st episode of CSI Miami's new season due to unexpected reasons ... nakakainis na reason na ayoko na i-mention. Pero I'll tell you in time ... kainis no, ngayon palang pinapalabas dito sa Pinas yung new season ng CSI Miami, samantalang in other parts of the world tapos na ata siya.
