Best Buddy

Lucky me to have participated the Wacom Digital Scrapbooking Contest! Just a little sad i wasn't that prepared to do a nicer LO as entry. But anyway, it was fun doing the "Best Buddy" LO as i never had much time to play with PSE tools and i realized that i really have to practice more to achieve a more presentable and proudly-looking LO ;o) Still, i'm happy i'm done with it.

Just to share, the 'Little Wonder' LO was not accepted as entry due to lack (ignorance, ngek!) on my part, considering that the Superman Image is legally owned by a comic book company and therefore, according to the Wacom Officer if they will post my entry to their website, it would result to a copyright infringement. Good thing i was able to learn that and would certainly stick to my mind in joining future contests/challenge. Also, I would like to thank the Wacom (esp. Mr. Ian Chun) because i thought i won't be able to submit today (deadline) due to system error and they have acted immediately on it when they learned that i'm having trouble submitting my new entry.

Hey, glad to see some GT friends at the entry list, and they really have great LOs! I know one of them are sure winner! Best luck to all of us!

Father and Son were so amazed with the green surroundings of Greenbelt Chapel in Makati City while enjoying their time together.

Little Wonder

AJ believes he can fly. He actually is. But then, he always knocks his head or some of his body parts when he’s doing his own kind of flying. For months now, he is so fond of action figures and superheroes thing. He’s acting it out very well and as it happens, he finds us (hubby and me) a good target as villain and we can’t help but be in character when he whooshes in to us. And it’s hard to stay that way, as receiver of his quick punches and kicks and at the same time keeping up with your acting..sometimes, I feel like I’m wonder woman myself…hehehe, naks.. carried away! All for the sake of fun and we always took advantage of the time whenever AJ do his antics and we never get tired of doing it again and again and again.

Before I forgot, I came across with a call to join for a digiscrapping contest sponsored by Wacom Asia. And before I change my mind, I think I want to participate with this contest with this scrap page as entry. Win or Lose, I’m more than happy just for the thought that I’ve joined such a contest. And it's a first time.

Calling all my dear digiscrapping friends, do visit the site and join in.


Finally, I’ve got the chance to use the wonderful Kit created by Sis Lorie M.

The photos in here were taken during AJ’s first admission to a hospital due to some viral infection. Anyway, he was in high spirits and too comfy despite feeling sick. Happiness was all over his face especially that we’re always at his side during those times. AJ was so animated at that time and no wonder, he is our own source of happiness up to this moment.

A digiscrap page for my sister Migs. Just finished our phone conversation, and as usual “ang gulo naming magusap”, but the reason is the line is choppy and not the usual na hindi kami magkaintindihan, hehe. Sis, this is for you.

Guess, I’m missing more my family back in the province. Hope to see them soon and to do some digiscraps for them too..Meanwhile, happy viewing!

Jollibee Time

We attended Jigs' 1st birthday party at Jollibee Ortigas Roosevelt last 12 July 2008 and AJ has fully enjoyed the dance number of Jollibee mascot. Here's the video:

My Hubby's New Girl

Yeah, you read it right! My hubby’s got his new girl by the name of CHERY, the girl from China. She is so cute, looks comfy, good looking, so cheery with a ready smiling face and quite striking as she really attracts other men when she’s out on the runway.

Hey, it’s the smiling car--QQ3 1.1 Sedan, Nasdaq Silver from Chery Iseway Motors. ;o) LOL! Hubby just got the Cheery Chery last Friday, 11 July 2008.

Though nearly everyone have so much angst among Chinese cars due to its reliability and resilience, for us we find it practical to have this car for several simple reasons. One, we will no longer endure the long queue for cabs whenever we go out/short travel or we shop for our weekly food stuffs/personal effects/grocery, plus we have our super playful toddler; second, its brand new (with 5-years warranty) and cheap (compared to other sub-/compact cars) and our budget can afford ONLY this kind of car; third, fuel efficient especially for city driving; and fourth, his X (short for his Honda XRM motorcycle) could only ferry me and hubby minus AJ to-and-fro our destinations. Well, we’re just happy to finally have her than none at all, and it’s our first!

Hard to skip these photos of Hubby, Son and Chery to scrap!

Our Little Miracle

Just want to share with everyone the AVP i've made--AJ's arrival day. Now that he's turning two this August, i want to cherish every moment of that day--the memories of him being little, soft and cuddly and the wonder of it all.
