Day after Bday

Hello! I just reported from work. I was absent the whole day yesterday just to spend time with Ryx. Its his actual birthday after all though we had the celebration last Sunday. Eena was absent too. The party went well. Daddy didnt make it coz he is busy with his work. All in all, we have ah how many… Mommy, Gagah, Bry and Boobae. Lesette (bestfriend of Reena)and son Ethan with cousin Hans. Felix (my bestfriend) and wife Sheng with son Berlin. Sir Sonny (officemate) with daughter Jackie. Katkat (officemate from Mercedes). Rianne was there too. And the sister of Reena, Cupid.

Ryx had fun. He was hesitant at first… but later on when he got used to the people around, everything went normal. He crawled on the floor. We took out some of his toys and scattered them on the floor much to his delight. He was joined by the other kids too.

Our preparation was just enough. We cooked the food ourselves. 😉 One thing we missed was the party hats. We forgot to use it! 😦

I’ll be posting some pictures soon. Just wait. Thanks for all the greetings!!! I’ll work now. Bye!

Brief Getaway

FEBRUARY 6
• We left for Dipolog (8:40 am trip). For the first time, nobody brought us to the terminal since Gagah was busy and Nong Jhun was unserviceable! Hehehe! The setup was I’ll board the bus alone while Eena and Ryx will wait at the junction of Mercedes and Culianan for the bus where I am aboard to pick them up. I went to the terminal by PUJ.
• Didn’t have a hard time in making Ryx go to sleep since he was too drowsy by the time they boarded the bus. He didn’t take his nap that’s why. Maybe the air helped too. No aircon trip was available – next trip was at 12 noon.
• Ryx slept while embracing Eena… first time in that position while onboard the bus.
• As usual, we had corned beef as baon for lunch
• Arrived in Dipolog almost 5pm. Tito Toto and Mamang Girlie fetched us at the terminal
• Met Tita Baby and Tita Babe before the start of the prayer
• During prayer, Ryx was in his walking mood.

FEBRUARY 7
• Woke up early for the 1st Year Death Anniversary Mass which was held at the Gulayon Cemetery
• Ryx skipped his nap because of the Mass
• After mass, we headed home for the reception. Ryx was asleep at the height of the celebration which was favorable for me and Eena since we were able to eat together
• Around 3pm, it was floortime for Ryx… only a few visitors were left
• Ate ice cream after dinner in spite of the heavy rain as advance celebration of Ryx’s Birthday. Flavor: Ube and Coffee

FEBRUARY 8
• Tita Baby and Tita Babe left the house for the airport while Ryx was asleep and Eena was taking a bath. So we decided to go after them at the airport so we can bid them good bye properly
• Early afternoon, Mamu and Eena with Ryx attended the Mass at the Cathedral. I stayed at home although later, I was forced to go to the Cathedral to “rescue” Eena during the mass. I got Ryx and we went outside. He was bored at the scenery already.
• After mass, we started preparing for our beach escapade
• Around 3+, we left for Sicayab Beach. Tito Toto, Mamang Girlie, Tita Cupid and all cousins except his Manne


• Ryx’s first time to take a walk in the sand… play with the sea water… and take a hip-deep plunge! He liked it!!! 😉

FEBRUARY 9
• Eena was not feeling well due to her hormonal imbalance… in short, gisapot!
• Left the house around 10am… a little later than planned due to some chores but it was fine.
• Departed Dipolog 12noon – Aircon Trip. Ryx napped twice during the trip. Short naps only. But when it was around 6:30 pm, his sleeping time, he slept on the lap of Eena. We let him wear his jacket and covered him with flanella.
• Arrived home around 7:30pm

Dr. Phil’s Personality Test

I just took the quiz a while ago. Do you know what the result is? See below:

THE LIVELY CENTER OF ATTENTION

Others see you as fresh, lively, charming, amusing, practical, and always interesting; someone who’s constantly in the center of attention, but sufficiently well-balanced not one to let it go to their head. They also see you as kind, considerate, and understanding; someone who’ll always cheer them up and help them out.

Nice result, eh?!

Aussie Open 2009

I hate to say this… but its the truth! Rafa emerged victorious in this year’s Australian Open beating Roger Federer in their five sets game.

GRRRRRRR!!!

I wasnt able to see the final match ‘coz I was busy watching my 11-month old son. But while I was at it, I kept my self abreast with the match by checking the scores in the web every now and then through my cellular phone.

End of 4th set. I’m keeping my fingers crossed! Hoping… that this match will be Federer’s 14th Grand Slam title putting him in equal position with Pete Samprass.

The next time I refreshed the page, the score for the fifth set was 4-2 in favor of Nadal! Still… I was hoping.

Then finally… it was over! Nadal won! Sigh! I went to sleep feeling a little frustrated.

This morning, I checked the web for the details. Grrrr! Saw the pictures of Federer in tears. 😦 Can’t blame him for that display of emotions. Being in that spot is really difficult…

I’m sure this match will have an adverse effect on Federer in his future games but I hope he can get over with that as soon as possible!

Federer, dont fret man! You are still the best!!! That 14th Slam is coming your way soon! Just keep the faith!
