Today - Nanay knows best

Today my heart aches because i miss my mother. As i prepare my daughter for school, they are to wear their country's native costume on racial harmony day so she wears a Filipiniana, I am just humbled because as I fix Hershey's hair, check that her clothes look good on her, prepares her accessories, sandals that would go with it, memories from my own childhood flashed back before me. I am no different than my mother. I remember that in every school occasions, when we had to wear costume or come to school in casual clothing, my mom prepares for it. I may not have the most beautiful or expensive attire but surely i come neat and prepared.

With that, I left an impression to my grade school classmates that I am well loved. They say that every time there are occasions in school they would expect me to come well prepared - i come to seize the day. Haha. I may not have the most beautiful costume but surely I'm not the last and I appreciate that. Just hearing the comments from former classmates that they too remembered those makes me appreciated my mother more.

I once asked some kids in our community here in Singapore if they wear their Philippine dresses, Filipiniana or barong for boys during school events and they said no because they don't have. I was like, what? So you wear what? School uniform while the rest walking and roaming school looking nice and pretty? They say yes, and tries to shrug it off. I don't blame the mothers but i actually blame them. Haha. Because its not compulsory they just don't care or maybe I'm just a stage mother. Just as my mom. 

So i don't know until when would my kid want to wear such in school but as long as she wants - will do. Its not too much anyway so more to come.

Thanks Mudrabells for showing me to love my daughter with some extra toppigns. Love plus more.

Christian Grey

I am looking at myself in the Ladies' room mirror in the office and I think I look nice in the long sleeves dress Im wearing. Whats even better is i bought this on sale from H&M. But then I remember Christian Grey. He was judging Anastasia Steele by how she dress up, describing her outfit as cheap from maybe H&M or Old Navy when she appeared in his office to interview him.

 Oh come on! What does it make me now? Even worse coz I got this on sale? I so hate you, Christian. Really.

Love, Hapi

Halle is ONE!

Halle is ONE!

Last December 01,2014 - my little baby turned one. We had dinner at home together with our family. My mother and sister in law were with us so we are very happy to celebrate it with them. 

We prepared a simple dinner, Filipino food like pansit and spaghetti for long life. Haha.

Here are some of our family photos. 

And then on the 6th of Dec, Saturday, we celebrated her birthday again with a party  this time with more family and friends. 

My elder daughter Hershey has been planning for Halle's party. She suggested the theme and worked with me on some decorations. Since the Frozen movie is the hottest pick for birthday theme for children this day, we didn't miss that too but I dont want it to be too much 'frozeny'. I wanted it with a twist so thought of making it a Winter ONEderland. Thanks to all the shared ideas of mommies over the internet. 

Everything is DIY. Its really exhausting and time consuming but all worth it when you hear how people appreciate what you did. 

Photos here. 
And yes we had Elsa. I really made sure Elsa would be Caucasian. Haha. Para feel talaga. And there she is... Lol

We thank the Lord for giving Halle to us. We thank the Lord for being too good gifting us the cutest baby that day of Dec 1st. 

We love you Halle. May you grow and live by your name. Halle-lujah!
