LEGO World

Mommy, Roey, me and 2 of my grand aunts visited SM City The Block and saw a number of kids go round in the center area where Lego toys are being sold. We found these miniatures displayed. Some of the kids are also busy counting the number of "Santa Claus" miniatures. You have to get the correct number of Santa miniatures so you can join a contest held by Toy Kingdom & Lego (I think) where you get a Lego toy as a prize.

I admire this miniature Eiffel Tower the most. I didn't imagine this can be built using Lego parts.

My sister and me. We were at the mall to buy my classmate a gift. Mommy bought me a Barbie long blouse and a new fab sandals too. I'll show you that in my next entries. =)

Back To Back Parties

These photos were taken 1 week apart. We had our Christmas party help at McDonald's West Avenue last December 3 and another post birthday party for Paolo last December 10. December is really a busy month not just for kids but for parents as well. The first three photos were of mine and sissy plus "The Royale Maldits" group (LOL!). The next three photos still shows me and sissy, kiddie online friends and pencil topper souvenirs.

My daughters in their matching MM blouses.

These get together gatherings and parties can be tiring but it leaves us wonderful memories and happiness we will treasure for life! Happy Holidays everyone!

Meet Pink Chuchi

Mom blogged about my stuffed toy which Roey named Chuchay. This time, my little sister eagerly opened a gift from Tita Everth even if it is not Christmas yet. She was all smiles to find out that Chuchay now has a sister - Chuchi. The new hug-gable toy brings smile to her lips and I am sure she will love Chuchi as she loves Chuchay.

Bubble Gum and The Lost Hairbow

Mom would not allow me to chew gums when I was a little younger. Last week of November, I had real fun playing with the bubble gum when Mommy allowed me to buy some. I bought about 3 pieces and offered one to Mom but she didn't take it. She always tell me the bubble gum will stick to her teeth. Since we were still waiting for our pork barbecue to cook (we were out and bought barbecue for lunch), I insisted for her to take photos of me in continuous shots so it will look funny as if the photos are really moving- like a video. Both these photos were taken last November 30, during the Bonifacio Day holiday.

This is the photo Mom captured. I got to blow a little big bubble! It was just this big when it popped. It was so quick. Good thing Mommy got to take a photo of the bubble.

And I was wearing this particular hairbow Mom made for me and my sister. We lost it. My sister Roey wore it few days after Bonifacio Day and as soon as we reached home, Mom noticed it was already gone. I feel sad losing it because the hairbow was personally hand made by Mommy and that it has a Pink star and the Pink and Black ribbons combination is cute too. It's time to join Pink Fridays!

Family Time: Birthdays

Just before November ended, our relatives (Mommy's side) planned and gathered to celebrate 18 birthdays. Imagine how big the family is. Yes! 18 of our relatives celebrated their birthdays last November and this gathering is for them.

We started with a short prayer for the November celebrants who already passed away while the lunch (buffet) table was prepared.

And just right after giving thanks, everyone grabbed their plates and enjoyed delicious foods set on the table. I immediately grabbed 2 chicken feet without knowing it's sweet & spicy. In the end, it was Mom who ate them since she joined us in the center table assigned for the kids to use.

One of the celebrants who turned 76, Lolo Uncle Feling and her sister Lola Auntie Cora were there. Mommy's uncle and aunt from her father's side.

Mommy was assigned to bring loot bags for the kids but she didn't get the chance to prepare it and decided to just buy 2 medium sized palayok and fill it with candies.We had an instant party game and had real fun! There were cash prizes for the winners.

I'm joining in Family Time. The next clan plan is a summer adventure somewhere out of town. Hopefully we'll be able to join in this 2012.

Gifts To Give

December means Christmas and Christmas is the celebration of Jesus Christ's birth. Just like when He was born, gift giving has already started... from the three kings. Each of them brought Him something special.

I once heard Mommy that she will start making the list of gifts to give to kids that are special to us. Roey and I were first in the list. For friends, boys are out numbered by girls but for both my parents' relatives and Godchildren, there are more boys than girls. I also think that Mommy is right, that it is harder to find baby boy gifts than looking something for girls. Good thing we found great gift ideas at The White Company because it has almost every clothing item you may need and even has a wide variety of Christmas stuff to choose from. And now that Christmas is just around the corner, I am glad that we are almost done with the gifts. Too bad we don't have a giant Christmas tree because it will not fit inside our little home. =)

No matter how grand the season may be, let us not forget the true meaning of this celebration... LOVE which is also Jesus Christ. As the song goes - "For God so loved the world, he gave us His only Son. Jesus Christ our savior, His most precious one." I am looking forward to Christmas day and the gifts of course, but I will never forget my GrandMama (may she rest in peace) who has taught me what Christmas is all about.

Have a happy gift giving, and merry Christmas everyone!

iTouch of Christmas

Mommy won an Apple itouch last 2007 at the Convergys Christmas party and we have been using it until now. It's one of the 1st generations of the gadget which is in 4th gen now. Mom decided not to sell it even if her friends kept asking for her to name a price. I am glad she didn't sell it. It still look new and now, it has so many games and applications Roey and I get to enjoy.

Jail break, that's the term Mommy used when she brought it to a cellphone repairman. That was done to reset the ipod and install applications and it was only after more than 2 years since she received it. After just about 3 months of the first jail break, the ipod won't turn on anymore and won't even recharge.

Mommy said the itouch is in hibernating mode. Ha! Ha! Last October, Daddy brought the ipod with him and returned it fixed. I was so happy and excited. But, I am only allowed to use it during weekends and when allowed on weekdays, I should have already finished my assignments. I love playing Cooking Dash, Mood Detector, Cooking Mama, Rollercoaster Rush, and Cut The Rope.

The only problem now is that the USB cable is no longer working that we can't recharge it anymore. Good thing, when we visited Tita Divine and Vin, we were able to borrow a USB charger. I was able to use it again. Thank you Tita Divine & Tito Boyet.

** Update:
As I woke up this morning (Dec. 03, 2011), Mommy said that Daddy bought a new USB cable to replace the damaged one. Yehey! Guess what? The iPod is currently syncing new more applications. I feel happy, it's Christmas!

Diary Of A Wimpy Kid

My second cousin had this box of books for her birthday. She has started reading it and I liked it too. I've heard good reviews from my classmates about the Diary of a Wimpy Kid and told mommy that I am interested in reading the books too. She told me to save, hehe!

Adhara and me at their place in Fairview. I would love to go back there so we can either read or play together. =)

Ruby Tuesday: BFFs

Mom said I am so blessed to have an instant BFF because she's an only child. She's dreamed of having a sibling but there are things that aren't really meant to be. But, she said it has been better that way because she has gained so many friends and still had a BFF, my grandMama, her Mom.

Mom brought us at SM Novaliches one Saturday. I remember that we had to buy some art stuff for a school project. She also ended up buying us 2 new play mats because it was on sale at 50% off. There was this standee that we found cute and Mom decided to let go behind it and took a photo of us. So cute, right?

We also has our late lunch at Jollibee. My BFF Roey enjoyed because she's so love Jollibee, the mascot.
This little person is totally playful and sometimes unpredictable but still very charming and adorable. I love my BFF, my sister Roey.

Trinoma Visit

Mommy, Me and Roey went out on a special date on day and headed to one of the nearest malls in our place, Trinoma. At the time these photos were taken, they don't have that much Christmas decorations yet but I am sure they have plenty now.

I posed in front of the fountain facing Mindanao and North Avenue. There, I wondered why Trinoma didn't place their "front" in the EDSA/North Avenue corner. Is it because of the MRT station that will somehow block the way or they just didn't want to be "face-to-face" with SM North EDSA? Hi hi!

I wore a Pink tank top and an old Pink belt, denim jeans and a hand-me-down Havaianas . My sister is also wearing a hand-me-down striped collared dress. That was originally mine, a gift from my Ninang Rosemarie.

Looking Back: Barbie & Denim

I looked into an old album and saw these photos when I was just about 6yo. They were taken Christmas Day where I was wearing a size 4 Barbie 3/4 sleeved blouse and a denim mini skirt.

My Godmother Amie gifted me with a Hot Pink shoulder bag which definitely matched my Pink belt too. Oh! And I was holding my new GameBoy Advance in the first photo. It was Mom's Christmas gift to me. Don't you think I so love Pink? haha!

One month to go and it's Christmas again! It has been that long since last year. We had a very silent and sad Christmas last 2010 because my grandmother Mama passed away. This year is the second Christmas we'll be celebrating without her. We truly miss her but we are happy she's in heaven now.

School Project: Mask

I tend to be forgetful most of the time and gets reprimanded because of that too. Mommy said it gets worse every time, he he! I forgot to inform her that I need to design a mask as a project for one of my subjects.

She got a little irritated but hurriedly prepared last Monday night so we can catch National Bookstore while it's still open. Good thing we were able to bring an umbrella because the rain poured when we got off the tricycle. We also had to ride a cab to get to SM Novaliches because there were a lot of passengers but less jeepneys at that time. And yes, my sister was with us.

We bought glittered glues, white glue, poster paint and a blank face mask. If we had difficulty going there, we didn't have a hard time travelling back home. That's good!

We started decorating the mask after dinner and I got a little excited trying it. Cute? It's not done yet...

I told Mommy that it looks bald so she's thought of adding the crumpled Japanese Paper instead. I also had to add a little more of the Gold glittered glue to thicken it a bit.

And this is the finished mask. I wish the mask's lips were darker (in Red). My teacher told me that it looks like a masquerade mask. He he!

Little Sissy's Hand-Me-Down Fashion

Who says hand-me-downs isn't cool? My sister Roey is so lucky to have tons of clothes to wear, most of then are given by friends. Some are originally mine, and then some were handed to me and then to her. Good thing that Moms have ways to restore clothes. =)

In the first photo, the jumper pants she's wearing was a hand-me-down given to me by my God-sister and mommy's niece, Adhara. The Dora shoes & hat were given by Sam of Tita Vangie.
Yellow collared tee - Carter's 3T
Denim skirt - Grizzly XS
White doll shoes - Stride Rite Baby
This is another set of hand-me-downs.

This 3rd photo is my favorite because of my sister's sweet smile. She's posed there by herself and called out Mom to take a photo of her. So cute, right?

We stopped my Messy Go Round meme since Mommy got so busy with her online job but I am hopeful that we can continue sometime in the future. For now, I would like to join a new kiddie meme, Kids' Fashion.
