Trip Down Memory Lane: The Confirmation…

It’s already 4AM here and I am yet to settle on my bed. ¬†I have a leak in the bathroom’s ceiling which I reported to the maintenance when I got home. Unfortunately, the water leakage is coming¬†straight out of the light fixture. That means that I cannot turn the light on to avoid further accidents. Apparently, the leak was caused by the renovation being done at the unit directly above mine. The maintenance guy and one of the roving guards mentioned was not authorized. Oh well. And I have to get up early later to run some errands that I […]

He played up until half an hour ago. Good thing he was able to go back to sleep. *Whew* I kinda like this challenge. It’s just that, I no longer have my hard drive (huhuhu) where I used to have a folder of a few scanned copy of old family photos. Here’s my ultimate favorite old photo: Yeah, I know. This […]

One year ago… When it started to sink in…

This week last year, during my 10th week of pregnancy, I had another ultrasound following my monthly pre-natal check up. The few previous consultations I’ve had with my OB, the reality that I was pregnant has not really sank in yet. Everything was surreal until I saw my baby for the first time, moving his arms around. This was the second time that I had my ultrasound done. And it was the first time that I saw a baby for real. It was an emotional moment, to be honest. I remember having mixed emotions – joy, fear, doubts, and all […]
