For a long time I have had pedicures, this is my first time. Hubby had to take out a part of my toenail. It was swollen and painful. A small pressure made me shout. No amount of painkillers could make me feel better. So I had persuaded and eventually forced him to take it out.

I don't wanna gross you out so I'll post the part where he was done.

As I'm making this post, pain is creeping in. Need to rest.

My mother now insist that I stick to one nail salon. I think this time she's right.

We recently discovered this new place where kids could play all day. They had such a huge area and the kids had so much fun. Entrance fee during weekdays is P100/hour and on weekends it's P140/hr. They also had unlimited play that cost P300 (P24/hr).

There's a coffee shop on the ground floor so that parents and guardians who wants to pass the time can stay in this area. On the basement where the play area is, they also had a fast food for those who would like to be near the kids.

Before entering, they take your photo, the kid's photos and the guardian's photos.

The bad thing though is that kids can still go out of the play area. Some of the toys have dust in them and some of the corners are dirty.

Nonetheless the kids had so much fun they didn't wanna leave.

K was scared of the big kids running around so I
had to go in.

R having fun with the toys

Of course M would be around even if he couldn't play with his sisters.

Photo Editing

Thursday, January 26, 2012

I've always wanted to buy a photo editor. I almost bought the Photoshop app for my Mac which almost cost around P5k. But I was holding myself back. Why? First I wasn't sure if I would be able to understand how to use it, and second, I wasn't a professional photographer, I just wanted to use it for our private photos.

So I was happily editing photos online via The sad thing about it is that the loading is taking too long. And sometimes, photos won't upload. So while browsing thru my iphone and Mac, I discovered this photo enhancement which automatically chooses the right settings for your photo. Silly me, I had my Mac for more than a year now and I just discovered this setting.

Now instead of buying myself the photoshop app, I'm happy editing my photos.

Also, it is available in my iphone4s.

First, choose your photo

Choose edit on the right upper corner. Tap the photo enhance icon on the lower part,
second icon from the left side.

It will tell you when it is on.

Lastly save your photo.

You'll notice that you're photos are more vibrant than before. If you don't like it, you can always turn it off again to go back to its original colors.

Now I'm beginning to like this phone.

What have you discovered lately?

Roll Over

Monday, January 23, 2012

Children develop at different paces. I have been a witness to that with my 3 kids. They walked at different ages. My eldest walked on her own at 1 year and 4 months, my second at 1 year and 1 month.

Recently my 5-month-old son was able to roll over. Although his right hand is in the way, everyday he has shown increase interest in doing it perfectly Here he is with his best smiles.

Don't you just love those smiles? :)

Happy New Year Everyone!

Kid's Clothes and More:)

Saturday, January 21, 2012

The kid's clothes have been in disarray for so many weeks and since we've been out almost all weekends I never got time to arrange them. So what better way to spend a sunday than to arrange and fold them neatly:)

It's easier to go through their clothes now. 

Sunday Fun with Dad

Thursday, January 19, 2012

After the scheduled visit to the pedia, we took the kids out for fun.

And while the two were enjoying the carousel, my little boy was sound asleep.

And how was your weekend?

My heels

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

For the first time I wore heels at work today. Not that I like wearing heels, I just got inspired by Daphne Paez. I love looking at her wearing heels. I love how she carries herself, effortless.

Back to me, I wore a 3-inch wedge shoes from Celine. I find it easier to walk in wedge as compared to other heeled shoes.

What my kids Love the most

Monday, January 9, 2012

My kids love taking pictures, of themselves or of other things they see. Whenever they see my camera or my iphone, they  say, "tik-chur" :)

I've been posting photos of what my eldest has taken. Though her photos may not be the greatest but they're the best for me. She takes better photos than I do.

Last night when we were rounding them up in the bed, seeing that her sister and brother were lying down, K wanted to be photographed.



Here's K hugging M.

Their new Tables and Chairs

Saturday, January 7, 2012

Finally got the the tables and chairs. I've been wanting to buy the Ikea one but it costs too much. So instead I had one made.

the kids are enjoying it, so are the yayas:) 

Going Green Friday

My still hectic day

Thursday, January 5, 2012

M's yaya still hasn't arrived so my lunch break has been: feed-eat-feed-work. I'm still standing but I don't know how long the other yayas can stand it.

Made this for R during lunch. with cheese pimiento.

He likes to touch everything with his hands now. Even tried to take the nail clippers.

Smiles a lot when Mommy is taking care of him.

 If only I wasn't working then I wouldn't have a hard time with the yayas. Patience.
