Hello hello hello! Boy am I glad for being able to blog freely again after a looooooong time. So much has happened in the past weeks that I was MIA in the blogosphere or had limited resources to tell you what I’ve been doing.
Anyway, let’s begin with two Fridays ago. Randy entered Khaleesi to the Philippine Circuit Dog Show at Megatrade Hall in SM Megamall. I’ve been to several dog shows sponsored by the Philippine Canine Club, Inc. before but it was our first time to attend a Circuit Dog Show. In a gist, it was special because aside from becoming a Philippine Champion, a winning dog could also become a champion in other countries.
Khaleesi was one of only two bull mastiff entries, and was the only bull mastiff in the baby puppy category. So we were counting she’d at least win the group category.
Unfortunately, she lost in all three shows on that day. Buuuuuuut, take a look at this:
Davah?!? So we are still optimistic she’d bag a championship in the future. However, we no longer returned on the next days because of our busy schedule.
Fast forward to Wednesday last week. The marketing team and I went to a career fair in a popular school in Quezon City. Aside from Brain Train, there were lotsa other review centers. Buuuuut, aside from the tarps that showed Brain Train’s 1,100+++ UPCAT passers and our impressive list of UPCAT, ACET, and DLSU CET topnotchers in the most recent exams, may isa pa kaming alas: ang gaganda at ang gugwapo naming nagma-man sa booth. Hohohoho. And to prove that to you…may nanghingi ng number ko. At first I thought it was official—that a school official was asking for my number because apparently we (Brain Train) impressed that school the most. The guidance counselor talked to me lengthily and asked me to submit a proposal to them. So when we were packing up and a couple of guys approached me and asked for a number kasi hinihingi daw ni [forgot the name] under the guise of “Si [forgot the name] po sa office, I gave them our office landline number. Then they said they need a mobile number. Since I have no plans of even flirting with whoever it is who wants my number, I gave Brain Train’s mobile number. O di ba?! I want to say it annoyed the hell out of me, and yes it did a bit, but I won’t deny I was flattered. Seems that at 30 with a 3-year old boy, I still got it, bey-beh!
Now fast forward to last weekend. Our Saturday last week was activity-filled. Very early that day, I joined Randy and Raviv in their semi-regular dog walks. It was a simple family bonding but I enjoyed every single moment of it seeing the excitement and glee on my little boy’s face. After all, it’s almost always just father and son.
After our dogwalk, we got dressed to attend two events at Bonifacio Global City. Our first stop was at the Nuffnang and Johnson’s Baby Play Factory held at Active Fun.
I’ll tell you more about this super fun event in a separate blog post.
After the Johnson’s Baby Play Factory, Raviv and I changed outfits and proceeded to SMX Arena at SM Aura for the Gingersnaps 20th Anniversary and Fashion Show. I saw several of my mommy blogger friends there, and we all had fun watching fashionable kids strut their stuff on the runway.
Again, this event deserves to be talked in depth on a separate post. So abangan din ‘yan.
And then on that same day when we got home, may bumulaga sa amin:
Randy got a new TV! I believe I have mentioned in one of my previous blogs that Randy is addicted to TV. But he will just deny this, and will convince me how we “need” another TV. [Babe OK na, ‘wag ka nang mag-explain, hehe].
The following day, Sunday, we went to church. Since most of our help were on their day off, we had lunch at Max’s. After having lunch, we went around and saw electric bikes (“e-bikes) being sold at CD-R King. Randy got excited, because just a few days ago before that Sunday he was telling me we need to buy a motorcycle so that our staff could do errands quickly. I vetoed it because motorcycles are expensive—I told Randy to just buy a bike since the errands that need motorcycle are those that need to be done at a relatively nearby place. But upon seeing the e-bike at only P15,000, we knew that this was what we need.
Everyone was excited with the e-bike, and that includes me! Raviv too! Everytime every one of us would try it, he’d insist on riding.
You know, I really hope that this e-bike would last a long time because it’s such a good equipment. Let me give you the reasons why we no longer had second thoughts buying it:
- It only cost P15,800.
- It’s environment-friendly as it does not emit any smoke and does not require gasoline.
- The electrical consumption of an eight-hour full cycle-charge is only Php 5!!! And this eight-hour charging would last a continuous travel of 2 hours.
- There’s no need to register this and the driver is not required to have a driver’s license.
So you see, it’s really perfect for short errands!
On Wednesday last week, hay naku!!! Kinagat ako ng bubuyog while I was waging a war against mosquitoes using the tennis-racket style mosquito killer. And until now namamaga pa rin. This is the second time I’ve been stung—I vividly remember the first time I was stung: I was probably six years old then. I got excited upon seeing a bee, because for kids bee=honey di ba? I thought the honey is on the pwet of the bee. Ayun, hinuli ko using my bare hands. And you can probably guess what happened next. I cried and cried, and I got no sympathy from the people around me. Hrmpft.
Last Friday naman, I finally got this laptop back! Hurray!!!
And finally yesterday (Saturday), Raviv and I attended Lucas’s third birthday. Lucas is the son of my mommy blogger friend Maggie.
Almost all of my mommy blogger friends, the Yummy Mommies, were there.
So as expected, chikahan galore. Pero bitin pa rin. I’d have suggested a shopping spree after the party if not for that I had to rush back because I was hosting a quiz contest.
So whew! That pretty much summarizes my past two weeks of my life. In between the days I’ve mentioned, I had probably just stayed in the office racking my brains about marketing strategies and troubleshooting problems.
Thank you all for reading! Kayo, kumusta naman? This does not have to be a one-sided conversation, actually. I’d love to hear from you!
Tell me what you think!
