Our 5th Wedding Anniversary at Universal Studios Singapore

We were totally unprepared for our wedding anniversary celebration this year. What happened last year was recorded here. It was only few days before the date when I remembered its nearing. I tried to file a leave of absence but unfortunately was denied so we dont have a choice but to stay in town and do the usual anniversary things couple do. :) Spa? Dinner? Staycation in a hotel? Karaoke? Hmmmm... When I asked the dear husband, he said its up to me but added, he thinks it is about time to check out USS.

You see, I never really thought of going inside USS. We occasionally visit Sentosa and have our pictures taken at RWS and the Universal Studios globe outside, but never really considered experiencing USS. I think the ticket is expensive but every year we go out of the country and visit some other amusement parks in Asia. I'm not too excited and in a hurry to see it, it's just in Singapore anyway. We invited few friends, booked together with our travel/gimik buddies and it's confirmed - We will be celebrating our wedding anniversary at the USS Singapore. Must be fun! Unfortunately, on the day itself, my kumareng Rocky canceled because of work reason. That's sad but we understand. Til next time. :)

After spending less than 8 hours at USS, my verdict, 6/10 overall enjoyment. In short, so so. :) sorry for the fans but I am no fan to adrenalin riser rides. I'm no thrill seeker. I felt tired hiding and closing my eyes just every time. I don't like being surprised, I don't like being scared... Frankenstein went infront of me and the first thing that came to my mind was to punch him but I felt Hershey pulling me away from Franky. When the monster was gone, Hershey tried to calm herself saying that F is a good guy, he's a friend of the chipmunks. Really? LOL. 

We were just half way through the fan parks and Hershey wants to go home already. hahaha. I never heard her say this in Disneyland or in Everland in Seoul before. Bought some souvenirs, watched the parade and out before 7PM. If I would be ask if I want to go back again, it depends but this is not something I would wish to go back to.

It was tiring but a nice experience for the 3 of us. Marvin rode the Galactica Cylon I think 100x times. Hahaha. Single rider = express lane. :)Thank you Lord for blessing our marriage. Glory to you for a happy family. — in Honeyversary at USS <3 .="." p="p">

Napoleones : Bacolod's best

I was craving for Napoleones few weeks ago even posting in on Facebook. I thought it was something impossible but praise God I got a box from my sister last week when some of our friends from the church visited Singapore.

Napoleones is a local sweet delicacy from my city, Bacolod. It is a square shaped pastry with custard cream inside and sugar icing on top. Just the description makes my mouth water. Ha ha!


 I don't think this is an original delicacy though, there has been some articles and pictures online - France has their version too. Say, Mille-feuille --

just sinful

So I can move on now but I can't wait til next time.

Mabuhay, Napoleones!

School Field trip - Alone.

Just recently, my daughter joined her class for a field trip. Daddy was contemplating at first who's gonna go with the child but I told him no mom or dad or Manang will be with the kid this time. He was like, "Oh, no no that's not going to happen." Ha ha! So for days we didn't sign the Consent letter yet because he was thinking seriously about it. He called school and asked for details about the trip. The Principal said there's no need to panic as the child will be in good hands. They are old enough to travel just be with the teachers on occasions like this. Did I hear it right? Old??? Duh!

I asked H if she wants and the baby, (please note Princy, its baby) said she wants to as everyone in the class will be there. With hesitation I said yes but I filed for leave of absence from work so I can personally bring her to school.

I was a supportive but a nervous Mommy. I told her to please take care, be with the teacher all the time, hold hands with her classmates, etc. I was almost crying. Ha ha! The teacher then told me, "She's gonna be okay" and then I cried right there. The other parents was comforting me. I was so ashamed of myself but I can't help it, really. Hee Hee.


The whole time I was just home praying and praying. I pray that she is always fine, that she is enjoying, having fun and safe. I waited for hours until the time I fetch her from school. I was so happy to see her after that. When she saw me outside school waiting for her she told me, "I missed you mom. Thanks for being here." I cried again.

Emo!!!!! Whatever. I just praise God that my daughter is safe and happy that she was able to experience this.

Blessings ♥
