what baby eats..

Add caption
when my son started picking things up and chewing on everything he could get his hands on, i realize that he’s quite ready to eat. he was about four months when we started spooning him mashed potatoes and porraige and other baby food. wow he’s not a picky eater!

as months goes, he seem to want to taste everything. now he’s 1 year and 3 months and he also learned to point at things he want. when he sees food on the table, he’d point out something that he thought he could eat. it was well advised by my aunt who is a doctor that a baby should eat whatever other family members eat. in small servings of course. aside from baby foods that he seem to like ( we give him gerber bottled purees and baby food and cerelac cereals… his favorite are – choco joy, chicken and vegetables and oats with prunes)

its quite funny sometimes when babies like my son imitates food habits that he sees other do. i was really amazed to see him dip his french fries on the ketsup! so its a must to have and eat the right foods especially in front of him. junk food are such a no-no!

i had a call a couple of days ago, my little boy is seem bored with his milk. my sister said he won’t finish off his bottle rather he’d look at the table longingly and point at anything in there like the banana, rice or even the cheese spread. he’s really growing up fast. just hope he’d continue to have that interest in food as he grows.

BABY Mag February 2008

last week, i was busy chatting and surfing the net coz i really need something to do or else i’d give in to the temptation of snoozing off at work. then…

buzz! twnx is congratulating me and telling me that i should have party… huh?!? for what? whhaat!! my baby made it to the baby gallery section of baby magazine (a baby magazine of national circulation!) wow! but wait? what picture was posted there? i can’t really remember sending the picture or what picture i’ve sent or when i sent it. are you sure it’s my little boy? yeah hundred percent sure!
then i was checking it out, yup he’s there! he’s photo is posted on the baby gallery section of the magazine! of course mommie is sooo proud!

i’m not really serious about being a stagemom but it really feels good when i saw my son in the magazine(even if its only a thumbnail photo). i’d sure be checking out other baby contest and send photos of my baby. who knows maybe would soon make it to the covers!

For the Love of Chocolates

and then there was chocolates………….

i’ve never known a person who doesn’t like chocolates. be it a guy or a girl, when asked if they wanted chocolates, surely it would be a yes. who could refuse that yummy, sweet (sometimes bittersweet), creamy creations? not me.. i love them!

so, valentine’s day is just around the corner (no i’m really not looking forward to it— i am single! lol), and chocolates are sure fire gift suggestions for the couples or guy’s gift for their girls. if i have someone to celebrate valentine’s day with, i’d be more than happy if get a bunch of chocolates! and wow! check it out, there are also sites for chocolates, stuffed bears and flowers for delivery!! uggh, wonder when i’ll receive anything like these!

not that i’d eat them all at once, but i’d really can’t get enough of it! so if you ask me, what to give your girls? chocolates of course!

On Brakets and Braces: No Pain No Gain Beauty Essential for Crooked Teeth

Dental braces (also known as orthodontic braces) are a device used in orthodontics to correct alignment of teeth and their position with regard to bite. Braces are often used to correct malocclusions such as underbites, overbites, cross bites and open bites, or crooked teeth and various other flaws of teeth and jaws, whether cosmetic or structural. (from wikipedia)
Parts of braces… (no that’s not me in the picture!) i still don’t have that hook and rubber band.. i really hope i’m not getting them this month!

unfortunately, i was one of those kids that ate too much chocolates and candies and more or less ran away from brushing. and if myth or fact, it caused my pearly whites to crowd and fit in the small confines of my mouth.

while checking out my month’s calendar, i realized that i’m only a week away from my next bracket adjustment and dental check up. after that, i got new colors for the elestics…. another hell of a week with soups and other soft food for surely i am again incapable of biting, chewing and with a mouthful of mouth sores, sure what an enjoyble post dental visit it would be.

the plan of getting myself these braces was realized just last year. after bonuses was given out, i know its the only chance i’ve got for it. after post poning the installation for years, i finally made it. so the saga with the braces started.

i was really excited, been thinking about this for years. been dreaming of a toothpaste commercial worthy smile for too long. the pain i thought would be momentary, that it would be gone soon. yeah it was. but it comes back month after month of adjustments. it really feels like a jack-hammer is working on your molars sometimes. this made me ate less, my jaw soon tires from worked-up chewing. i cannot enjoy eating pizza or barbeque. the food i enjoy most, at times a becomes a big challenge for me.

well that’s it for us wanting b-e-a-u-t-y… haha! most of my friends say, “no pain, no gain.” yeah right. just have to take all that pain for the sake of beauty. i would soon have that “close-up” smile. a few more months…

Best Summer Destinations in the Philippines

one more month and summer is already on! even this early in the year, some people are starting to plan their summer outings, vacations and escapades. i am also one of them, though not really planning yet, i am dreaming and imaging a totally stress-free and laid back summer days.

work has been hell this past few weeks and i can feel it taking toll on my back. i am somewhere near being burnt out and it is really stressing me out. thinking about lazy summer days though seems to lessen that burnt out feeling.

there is of course the beaches. i am lucky to be living in the philippines where you can find one of the greatest beach in the world. though its only within the country, i still haven’t really been there. and that’s where i wanna be this summer! i hope! haha… imagine pure powdery white sand, bluest crystal sea water, …. i think the waves are calling out to me. boracay.. one of these days, i’ll be there. =)

what else could beat this!

up next in my destination list.. well actually a second choice if i don’t make it to boracay this summer…. puerto galera. though not as good as boracay, puerto galera would be more accessible from manila and of course lesser the expenses. said to have great dive sites resorts and also great beach!

of course there are also the ones in palawan and in bohol (i have been hearing great great praises for beaches here in and great places to visit). it makes me real proud when tourist name these places paraside beaches. what it could we call it but that. thus my urge to go and visit these places any time soon! i live here but i havent seen these places yet! makes me think i’m really missing half of my life!

panglao beach, bohol…..

so they say… nothing beats philippine beaches, agree! agree!! need i say more? =)

A History of Friendship

kulang kulang 9 na taon na ang nakakaraan ng unang narining ko ang inyong mga pangalan. dahil sa kayo’y kaibigan ng aking kaibigan, narapat lamang na tayo’y magaka kilakilala. isang maliit na tropa ng magakakaibigang may totoong malasakit sa bawat isa ang naging kabuuan.

kulang kulang 9 na taon na ng mundo nati’y nagulo. sanlibo’t isang kalokohan, kwentuhan, problema, at tawanan ang ating pinagdaanan. Nakita natin sa bawat isa ang hirap, saya at pag ibig na atin kanya kanyang narasanan. bawat problema, walang nag iwan, bawat saya, sama sama. sa ngalan ng pag-ibig? nandyan ang walang kamatayang asaran at kantyawan.

nakita natin bawat pagbabago at pag “mature” (kung nagmature nga) ng bawat isa. mula sa pagiging mapang asar at kawalan ng direksyon ng buhay, naging seryoso at determinado sa pag abot ng kanya kanyang pangarap.

natatandaan nyo pa ba? anong ingay ang nagagawa ng mga nene at totoy na pinagsama sama? may mga mapanuring tingin dahil sa di nila maintindihan ang ating tropa?

naalala nyo pa ba? walang katapusang kwentuhan habang wala ring kaubusan ang ating redhorse? kaya nga nagkaganyan mga tiyan nyo di ba? sa bawat okasyon, simple man o kahit pa walang kwenta, nagiging dahilan para mag usap usap, magkwentuhan at magkaroon ng pagkakataon para maharap harap sa ilang bote ng beer.

noong hawak pa natin ang ating oras at pag aaral lamang ang tanging pinagkakaabalahan? bawat bakasyon sigurado na naman ang swimming at jamming sa amater. kelan kaya mangyayari ulit yun? ngayong may kanya kanya ng buhay at trabaho, may pagkakataon pa kaya gawin ulit ito?

nakakamiss. sana kahit anong problema at pagsubok pa pagdaanan natin, mas maging matatag sana ang ating samahan. wag makakalimutan ang ating mga pinagdaanan. dahil dito mas naging matatag ako. salamat, alam ko kahit anong mangyari nandyan kayo.

How to Control Emotions: The Funny Guide

This would give you guides on how to control your emotions towards your better-half, friends, officemates and all the people around you, especially your “boss” . The rules of practicing “ugaling langit, ugaling kaaya-aya” :
#1 Ang naunang magalit ang may karapatang magalit. Pag naunahan ka na ng galit niya, tumahimik ka na lang muna.
#2 Walang taong nag-aaway mag-isa. Pag hindi kayo sumagot o pumatol, titigil din daw ang taong nakikipag- away sa inyo.
#3 Ang taong galit, ‘bingi.’ If someone is angry, wala raw pinakikinggan, so, don’t try to explain and fight back. Hindi ka niya iintindihin dahil wala siyang naririnig kundi ang sarili nya.
#4 Ang taong galit, ‘abnoy.’ Ayon sa pastor, Biblical daw ito? because the Lord said when He was crucified, “Father, patawarin mo sila dahil hindi nila alam ang kanilang ginagawa.” Modern term for these kinds of people are abnoys, so you better not get angry para huwag kang matawag na abnoy.
You should also know and realize that the persons who make your day bad are jewels, because you need them for you to mature. Hangga’t andyan daw sila at kinaiinisan mo, ibig sabihin, immature ka pa. God will not take away those people; it’s for you to take away your bad feelings towards them. You’ll know na mature ka na pag dumating ‘yung time na hindi ka na naiinis sa mga taong ito because you have learned to accept them and to have patience with them.
#5 Finally, the best part of this is to tell yourself na, because of this person, “I will grow mature,” and that DAHIL SA CONTRIBUTION NIYA SA MATURITY MO, KUKUNIN DIN SYA NI LORD

Teloy’s Candid Shots

Nothing could be ever as wonderful than looking through the eyes of your child, hearing their resounding laughter and feeling their small hands touch yours..
..no doubt they are angels sent from above to touch your lives..

at about one month i am comfortable lying on my stomach, especially after my milk. they say i burb like a man! huh?

mama!! there’s two of you!!

ay… isa ka na lang ulit?

mom, wake me up when its finished okay?

i am baby teloyskie…

here’s a few facts about me… no need to decribe how good looking i am, i definitely got that from mom. =)

i love watching planes! each time i hear the sound of an approching plane, i know get really excited and i really i need to see it! except of course when im busy with my milk which i can never let go unless i dont really dont want it. =)

i am mom’s little man! mom was so proud when she took this shot and that made me really nervous and really dont know what to do next. mom said i come to her but what if i fall? will she be able to catch me? i hope so, it’s getting rattly standing when my knees are woobling!

that’s me at five months! mom visits me often enough to know many things about me. each time the thinks that i am already forgetting her, she pops up and ooh she’s here! yipeeee! miss her when she’s away and lola is the only one taking care of me =(

freakin’ mad!

its one of those days that seem to be the total opposite of yesterday.

we had great time at the office, nothing too serious and stressful. jokes there, sheiks of laughter here. it was a relaxed, non-stress non-pressure day for us. the presentation turned out to be a total success even if its early in the morning, people truly enjoyed it. maybe that was why the whole day vibrated with happy energies, making most if not all people lay back and share a joking moment for the whole day.

before it really end, i though about what will tomorrow bring me after having such a happy day today? then came this day, the tomorrow that i was thinking about. its not fine, in fact its a day that seemed to be ruined even from the start. having discovered lies and blames being pointed at me, and having an argument turned into a full blown fight. a fight that’s not even worth the time and energy coz i realize that its been sapping my energies before the argument even started. its not worth it, he’s not worth it.
