If you have time to check your Facebook stream, or go blog hopping, then you have roughly 30 minutes to spare. Spend it to watch this video. You simply must.


Thank you.

I will not tell you why you must support this campaign, I think he’s said it all. I will tell you though that I was deeply moved by this video. This is not news to me, these children were once not invisible to me. I am aware of the plight of these children and their stolen childhood. I have heard of the LRA before. But like so many others, I knew, but didn’t do anything. Or maybe I did, but then I forgot about it.

We shouldn’t forget. We can’t forget. Kony and his army must be stopped. And this is the year to do it.

Support the Invisible Children, in any way you can.


Welcome Summer!


Summer really is officially here. Dad bought an inflatable pool for Amir and the little guy loved it!


Hello water bill! But as the Visa ad campaign would say – laughter and smiles from a one-year old: priceless. Smile

DIY Animal Mobile

At least five friends are expectant moms this year. Three are new mommies. I’ve been thinking of what to give them and I saw this today:

The pattern for everything on the mobile is for sale (at a very reasonable price). But I wonder how long it will take to actually make this? And could I make more than one? I sure would like to make at least one, and send it all the way to Dubai so Jo could have it for her first baby (best friend Jo who I haven’t seen since her wedding and is now based in Dubai with her husband).

Anyway, this will be one of those dream projects. Hmm..

Oh by the way (unrelated to the mobile) – does anyone know where I can take our Garmin GPS and have it serviced? It just suddenly stopped working. We’ve missed it and we’ve been using the maps on iPhone to navigate unfamiliar areas but it’s not as easy to follow while driving. I tried to run a search but what came up is the Garmin chirp, which is interesting, but not what I need right now. Any info would be highly appreciated!

Books for Pens of Hope


Miss N is at it again.

Pens of HopePens of HopePens of Hope


Getting the pens and sending them to Miss N’s PO Box two years ago was a good experience. I don’t know why I didn’t write about it (the only additional mention of the project was in this post where I said I was going to ship out the pens), but it was a wonderful experience. Not sure why I didn’t send anything out last year or earlier this year. Bakit kaya?

But I am so glad that this Christmas, Miss N will be off to Bobon, Northern Samar to bring books to children.

Find out all about the project and how you can help at Nortehanon.

I hope you do more than check it out. Children’s books don’t cost a lot.

My little nephew is sick, read all about it – Get Well Soon, Amir!


Oh and by the way, my sidebar is wonky. I am truly sorry for all who have been trying to click through. Pray it gets fixed soon. Sad smile

Some things I won’t Miss

I was looking forward to a few events this weekend, but I missed them all:

  • Rock Rizal concert
  • Manila International Book Fair (I even dreamt about walking between the aisles and checking each trade show booth and spending a fortune on new books!)
  • Mercato Centrale
  • UAAP Cheerdance Competition (Would have been nice to be in Araneta to witness it, but I did watch it live on TV)

The concert and the book fair were both held at the far MOA. Had the boyfriend been around on Friday afternoon, it would have been a possibility. But he was out on a road trip with his parents. Mercato would have been possible this morning, but I really wasn’t up to it. After all, that one happens every weekend.

And I don’t really mind missing out on those events. There was nowhere else I’d be than home, so I couldn’t miss out on these:

Amir is growing up so fast! He can stand now and he’s always up. He knows to reach out and ask to be carried. At nearly nine months he’s two front teeth are out. And he makes a lot of noise!

We’re just so glad that he’s still healthy, and maintains his happy disposition.

I love you Amir! And we loved having you home for the weekend!
