I'll Spontaneously Combust

...if I am ever in the same room with both Tori Amos and Alanis Morrisette. I would literally implode and melt in the presence of greatness-es.

Wish they'd do a tour here. (Sighing wistfully)

These...

..are pics of my unleashed post partum body. Hehe. I still have a lot of pounds to shed. But I'll get there. =).




Look at the size of those arms! Freaky!



Our team during our company's management outing last May 19. Rowald and I were the official trash talker of the team and it paid off. At the end of the day we were declared the winners!!! Hoo-hah!

Wary

Wolf is very suspicious of cameras. He would laugh, squeal, and giggle but when we place the camera in front of him, he would instantly wipes away any trace of happiness on his face and replace it with a suspicious look.





(wearing the tighty-whiteys he inherited from Kuya Louis. tee-hee.)




Number one the 'hood!!!

Dang! America Got It Right This Time!


Let the recording sessions begin!

But to be fair to little Archie, he really gave the best performance of his life yesterday but he's still young. He still has the possibility to achieve so much more. Perhaps even starring in the future releases of High School Musical. Hehe.

But David Cook winning is so, so right!

This really was the best American Idol finale. Do we agree?

Now I'm sad. The Office and House MD Season 4 are done. And now, American Idol and CSI.

September seems so far away.

Wolf's New Toy


His motor skills are rapidly developing and he can burst out into a full fledged laugh when we do crazy antics. He can recognize faces now and he would smile to those faces familiar to him. He loves playing with Daddy but when it's sleeping and crying time, he only wants Mommy's arms around him.

This little boy has me totally wrapped around his chubby little fingers. Sigh.

Hype and Shish





I'm a Krispy Kreme late bloomer. After I got back from my maternity leave, I found out that there was a newly opened Krispy Kreme along Ayala Avenue. And after weeks of letting my eyes rove hungrily over the dessert display case whenever I pass by the store every morning, I decided to buy some last Mother's Day. I got a couple of their Original Glaze, a piece each of their new flavors: Strawberry and Blueberry Cheesecake, Powdered Strawberry Filled and Chocolate Iced. I even placed it on the nice gift tin cans that they're advertising because, well, it looks nice. All for a whopping 288 Pesos bill.



It took about 2 days and a half before everything was wiped out. Which was weird because we can easily devour a dozen assorted donuts from Dunkin Donuts for a couple of hours. Well the major verdict was that everything was just too, too sweet.

I know that donuts are supposed to be sweet but my mom's internist would've balked at the amount of sugar that KK Donuts has. And I am a self-proclaimed sweet tooth but my poor teeth had raised the white flag for KK.

From now on, I better stick to good 'ol Dunkin Donuts. Fills me up and yet my wallet could at least still stay intact.

My husband and I were at West Avenue awhile ago to finalize the plans for Wolf's Christening and we planned to eat at Mister Kebab. I was delighted to find out that they're now on a bigger and better ventilated location that also comes equipped with a parking lot. The striped awning was pretty nice touch and it helps a lot if Kebab is jam packed (as it usually is) and you'll have to wait outside for your turn. The interior had greatly improved as well but amazingly, the price is still the same.



Mr. Kebab is a place very close to Freefall's heart. We celebrated here after our thesis defense, which was coincidentally my birthday as well. We ate here before binging on alcohol. We ate here when we're happy, sad, bored, or just wanted to slug on their garlic sauce. Some of us even used to run in to their ex-es here. A lot. There are only good memories here.


And so, in the celebration of remembering those fond memories, I ordered my usual.

The Chicken Chelo Kebab. =). With lots of garlic sauce.


Hubby ordered the Special Beef Chelo Kebab. Eh, kinda looks disgusting from this angle.


And the meal would never be complete with the POTATO CUTLET. But it tastes a bit different now. I can't pinpoint if it's the curry or the flakiness of the potato but I remember it as being more creamy in texture. So I had mixed emotions about the cutlet.


But other than that, this meal is still the epitome of comfort food.

Burp.

Punks



My punk was obviously not happy with the way he's being held by his kuya but this was the only time that I was able to have them all sit still for 10 seconds. They're very, very active punks, you see. The older ones are prone to get addicted to PSP, PS2, PC Games, and their lola's cooking. My punk will get there someday.

We're still missing one punk here, but it's quite obvious that male gene is quite potent in our family. We haven't produced any female heir since 1983, which was around the time that I was born.

Ha!

I'm still the last woman standing.

Three Months, Baby!


Here's my Little Punk and Me . Looks a lot like his Dada here.
My adorable punk is cooing and talking a lot. We love Playtime!

Yesterday was a rare Date Day for me and my husband. We went at the Church to book Wolf's Christening and went to Trinoma afterwards to watch Ironman. Lurve it! My husband hates Robert Downey Jr but he admits that the role suits Robert Downey Jr well. So there.

Ate a very late lunch at Five Cows. Main courses were a bit blah. I had the Chicken Fillet and hubby ordered a pizza.




Desserts are the strong point of Five Cows.

Their Ferrero Supreme is da-bomb! Even my non-sweet tooth husband agrees.


Visit Trinoma Five Cows now for this little piece of sugary heaven.

The Stoner has Left The Building


There's just not much left for this guy however cute he may be and despite being the 'brain dead' that he is.

Predictability is now the name of the game.

But there's still Syesha. Didn't think she'd last this long.

Gotcha!


Finally caught him smiling on cam! Look at that glee in his face! =)

Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie

Off you go then...



And please, please, please give poor Syesha a break. It's time for her to go as well. She's been in the bottom two/three since forever. =).

And one last thing, please give Ms. Abdul a higher dosage of her Prozac, Xanax, and Ritalin. Homegirl badly needs it.
