Like this afternoon, he was tugging on my shirt and pointing under the bed, and he said:
"Mama. Baw (how he pronounces BALL)."
Oh my heart, my hormones, and loins.
PLease, don't let this boy grow up too fast.

When the actual cutting started, this little boy had created a ruckus so bad that all passers by would stop and probably check what kind of torture we are subjecting this kid to.
I swear, below were the last normal pictures I was able to take because for the next 15 minutes, there had been a lot of screamng, and crying, and screaming.
Aaaand, here's Wolfie:

I haven't been blogging much these past weeks. We have moved again and this time we are practically on our own. Still adjusting. I miss my mom. =(
We still don't have internet or cable connection. It sucks.
I lost my yaya a week ago due to an unfortunate incident (may blog about it soon). Hassle sobra.
And the digicam is with one of my brothers so I'm unable to upload Wolf's latest photos.
In short, everything is still in chaos. >.<. Have not even finished editing the lay out of this blog.
But last Monday, September 14, was marked on our calendar.
September 14, 2009 meant that I have been blissfully married to my big hunk of meat for TWO YEARS. And I/we don't care if you call him baboy. Well, he's MY baboy and atleast he was single and unattached and not married with three kids when I met and married him. Bwahahahaha! (and a lot more snigger)
So how do we top last year?
It was a boon from heaven that a colleague told me on September 2 that Circles at Shang Makati was having 50% off their buffet the whole month of September. And reservations, here I come!
So we totally starved ourselves and apparently was too excited as we were there 30 minutes early. Hung out in the waiting area and took photos. This year was no different. We used a camera phone except that for this year, the camera phone is 3mp. =)
That's the waiting area:
Our obligatory official 2nd anniversary photo:
We were planning a Mafia-style photoshoot (Boa's the mob boss and I'll be his number one assassin and bitch) shoot courtesy of Ronniekins. It's a killer concept, with 1920s costumes and kick-ass machine gun and everything, but there was too much gastos the past few weeks and there's the CHAOS...so that was put in the can. Will try next year.
There's a shot of the next table:
Aaaand Circles. Lots of 'em.
More boring pics:
That's a photo of a huge man in mission:
For our first round, we attacked these wonderful, wonderful fruits of the sea:
Holy Hell! There were LOBSTERS! There were LOBSTERS. We paid 744.++/head so by the amount of lobsters we ate, super-duper bawi kame! These babies paid for themselves! And those mussels were really HUUUGE!
Husband took a sliver of the prime rib, some sausages, and for some weird reason, a slice of pizza. Prime rib was good. There was a white type of sausage that would be good on a hotdog bun.
I was a bit full by this time, so I stayed away from the heavy stuff and took some pieces of cheese and nuts and dried fruits and drank a whole lot of peppermint tea.
My tongue is definitely un-cultured as I found the blue cheese and emmenthal cheese quite disgusting. Husband pointed out that the cheeses should've been paired with wine and grapes. And then I realized, emmenthal cheese + lobster = lobster thermidore. Yum.
Husband had another round of the sushi and lobster. But by this point, he is also full.
I, on other hand, had started attacking what I actually came here for: DESSERTS.
This Halo-Halo was gone in a matter of minutes.
Sansrival, some fruit cheesecake and fruit salad.
More desserts. I don't know what they're called but they're all good. Except that brown thing...I thought it was chocolate. Coffee pala. It was too bitter.
And me, still attacking the desserts. =)

Well, this is a pair of tickets that I am guarding with my life.
CANNOT wait for June 24th.
Autobots. Roll out.
(but not liking Megan Fox as of late with that big head of hers)

IT WAS HARD.
The symptoms came back full force. Palpitations, irritability, intolerance to heat, depression, insomnia, tiredness, muscle weakness, diarrhea, hyperactivity, incontinence, extreme thirst, and worst of all:
I was supposed to be done with treatment in preparation for my surgery but now I'm back to square one.
I can't take the other thyroid meds (PTU, Methimazole, Strumazol) because I'm allergic. Only carbimazole works.
Finally, I've found a whole bunch of them at Watson's SM Marikina today.
So two more months of medication worth around 4k. Ouch on the pocket.
Any remedies on that?

I found this mewing homely kitty behind the washing machine a week ago while I was doing the laundry. Mom took pity on him and fed him rice and tinola soup and the critter just lapped it up. Brother Number 4 was aghast because he knew this kitten doesn't stand a chance. Our three dogs Piglet, Colossus, and Maya would kill any creature smaller than them.
So he let the kitten out of the house to find his way back to his mama and siblings.
But for the next two days, this mangy creature would pop in to eat and then leave. And by the third day, he didn't leave after his meal and has been staying at the laundry area ever since.
We've never had a cat as a pet except for this one brief time, before I was born, when we had a Persian Cat named Persia (how original, right?) but she escaped and never returned. We've always been dog people so we don't know squat how to take care of this feline.
And this feline, admittedly is not really cute. He is pure black and mangy, but my mom has high hopes for him. I don't know why she fell in love with this creature. It's really weird.
During the day, he can wander freely at the laundry area. He loves lounging at the hamper and rolling around in my brother's clothes. Which pisses him off. Hehe.
At night, we keep him inside the house in a crate that I used before when I was breeding hamsters.
We can't decide on a name. Mom calls him Wacky. Brother number 4 calls him Max. Brother Number 3 and I call him Bogart.
Which name would you pick for him?
Any advise on how to raise cats are welcomed too.

Fans of Japan's best-known director Akira Kurosawa now have access to an online treasure trove of thousands of photos, sketches and other materials from the film-maker's life.
A digital archive of 20,000 items went live on the Internet this week, ranging from private photos and newspaper clippings to notes and sketches of movie scenes, the website's operator said Wednesday.
The archive includes scripts with his scribbles and drawings of scene ideas as well as photos taken on the sets of Kurosawa classics such as 'The Seven Samurai', 'Kagemusha' and other award-winning films.
Also on display are photos showing Kurosawa as a child on a rocking horse, relaxing as an adult at his Tokyo home, and dining on a trip to France.
The director died in 1998 aged 88.
The Japanese-language archive can be accessed on the website http://www.afc.ryukoku.ac.jp/Komon/kurosawa/index.html. It was launched by Kurosawa Production and Ryukoku University.
