pink bag from the Bag Hag

Last December 2010, I joined the Bag Hag's twitter contest and fortunately I became one of her winners. Only a month after the contest was I able to claim my prize at the Accessory Lab in Rockwell/Powerplant Mall. I was so happy when I saw the tote bag and it's PINK! I told thebaghag, I love it! By the way, if you are into bags or if you just want another blog to follow, check out her site, The Bag Hag Diaries. She also have travel and food posts which you will enjoy and yes she does contests once in a while on her site and in twitter.

And since we really don't have a diaper bag for Mia's things, we use this bag when we go out. It fits lots of Mia's and my stuff whenever we go for a stroll or to the church on Sundays, only it doesn't have a zipper but it's just right, you can easily get the things in and out of the bag.

my little photographer

At 2 years and 3 months, I now have a photographer :)

She likes to grab the camera from her titas and clicks to her delight--we actually dont know if she's amazed with the flash it makes or the sound or whatever. She doesn't even look at the preview of the image she's taking. There are times that she also borrows my cellphone just to take our pictures. As of now, I don't have a copy yet of the pictures that she took but once I get the files, I'll share them to you so stay tuned...

pretending to be looking through the view finder but obviously not :)
This is one of the pictures taken during the Nuffamily Day. I picked the picture above because I like that she's wearing pink (which i think looks good on her) and she looks like a professional photographer :)

the outfit details: pink shirt that I bought from the recently concluded bazaar held at our office, black leggings with pink ribbon-like detail at the bottom part (from one of her lolas) and offshore rubber shoes bought at SM Department Store.

First Nuffamily Day at Crosswinds Tagaytay

It was a first time for us (me, my husband and mia) to be in Tagaytay. Together with my tito Flor, tita Lily, tatay Lando and my sisters Jen and Jona, we joined Nuffnang's first ever Nuffamily Day held at Crosswinds in Tagaytay.

participants at the top of the hill
The event was held at the area which I heard they call the helipad. It's at the top of a hill and most of it is covered with grass which is perfect for picnics and kite flying.
It was a fun-filled afternoon with lots of food, games and prizes. We even joined the Paper Folding Stop Dance game. We didn't expect that we'd reach the final two because of all the groups that joined, we were the only group that didn't have a child member--we're all adults in our group. But at the final battle we lost but its fine we enjoyed the game :)

The only thing I wasn't able to do that day was to meet other bloggers just as I wrote on my previous post because I literally treated the day a family day. Well, it's a first time for us to be out of town as a family.

my sisters getting ready for their lantern's lifting
Before the event ended, we all had the chance to light our own lanterns. I just didn't have a picture of us actually lifting the lanterns. Just like in the animated movie Tangled, the modern version of the fairy tale Rapunzel, the lanterns are a beautiful sight specially on a beautiful night sky. I just wondered at the end, where would the lanterns land after their lights go out--just a thought...

Thank you Nuffnang and the sponsors for the exciting and fun-filled Nuffamily Day! Unfortunately, nanay Bel was not able to come with us then because she was not feeling well that day but we brought home lots of food for her to enjoy :)

Camera Crazy

Lots of people are joining the photography craze nowadays, even non-professional photographers own high end cameras now (I don't mean to offend anyone with this okay).

I do like to take pictures but I don't own a camera. I use my sister's camera instead or take advantage of my mobile phone's camera which just said goodbye to me yesterday--i'll write a separate post about that. The first and only camera that I bought back in 2008 got broken at exactly 2 weeks after I've purchased it {sob}(due to things that happen beyond our control, I could not blame anyone I just had to accept the fact that I already lost my camera then and there) and I never got to buy a new one until now.

But just now while I was browsing through my mails, these things caught my attention and who wouldn't want to have one when the price are way below than the actual price of an SLR or a DSLR camera.

Presenting, the things that you can buy instead if you fancy a camera but couln't afford at the moment...

have your daily dose of coffee on a camera lens mug
hug a camera lens

save your extra coins on this camera bank

Aren't they cute? I want to have one :)

bye bye my phones

The two mobile phones that I'm currently using just died last Friday. Apparently, while I was sleeping last Wednesday, Mia gave those two phones a generous milk bath and that happened while I was sleeping (I work on graveyard shift/night shift).

When I woke up these two phones were soaking wet with milk. Sorry I didn't have the actual picture of the phones because a) I don't have a camera and b) I'm using my phone's camera which unfortunately got broken so instead I borrowed pictures from GSMArena.

I learned my lesson: do not leave your things within reach of your children specially toddlers who would spill any liquid on anything or dunk anything on a container with liquid inside.

Now, to find and have a new phone because I need it primarily for work and for communicating with my family at home and of course with my friends. Not to mention that the above mentioned broken phones were just borrowed from my dad and my sister :( I need to find funds to replace them and to buy a new one...

my best friend's wedding

More than a month ago my college best friend Eunice tied the knot with her fiance Paul. Eunice is my college best friend, we met on the first day of our college life and we've been friends since then. And being Eunice' best friend, she got me as her matron of honor.

I will not talk about the wedding per se because we all know what happens during a wedding ceremony and at the reception, instead, here are my favorites during that day:

The Bride's Dresses. She doesn't just have one but three dresses. She wore the peach dress during the preparations at the hotel. Then her wedding gown which was so simple but elegant looking. At the latter part of the reception she then changed into another white dress with a belt with flower detail. 

By the way, her mother made these two dresses below all the way from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and Eunice only sent her measurements thru email and they fit her well during her wedding. 

The Flower Girl's Bear. Honestly, this is the first time i've seen such unique way of having a teddy bear with flowers instead of the usual bouquet or basket with flowers for the cute little girls. 

Friends. For years, I haven't seen my college friends because of being busy with work, family and all other stuff. Good thing we were all assigned on the same table number and it's just beside the newly wed's table.

We also had a few shots from the photo booth :) 

We all had fun that day. May I also commend JFR Events for making sure everything is on time and in order. Paul and Eunice wrapped up the program with a dance number which delighted all the guests.
