Another Baby!!!

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

A new baby of ours has been born!  Midnight Mercato!

Started last February 11 and hopefully, it would be a continuous midnight market in BGC.  Every Friday and Saturday night from 11pm to 3am.

This is the same venue as the Mercato Centrale.  Some of the concessionaires joined both Mercato Centrale and Midnight Mercato so hurry now to those who do not wish to wake up early but has the time to go out late at night.

Here’s some partners who are only in our Midnight Mercato…

There are more food to choose from but I am just dependent of the photos taken by my hubby….and also, because I am trapped in my booth!!!!  The only good thing  about it is that I am being served with food! hahaha

I love having taho at night!!!!

I need to have pacing when I eat now because of this midnight snacks we have every Friday and Saturday night.

Valentine’s For A Cause

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Instead of spending so much for Valentine’s, why not donate your Valentine’s budget to give hope and life to Job? Be touched by his story; Job really needs our help to see more of the beauty of life here in the Philippines:

Job Tyrese, our first baby, was born in June 6, 2010 with BILIARY ATRESIA–a fatal, serious and rare liver disease that affects newborn infants (1 out of 15,000). 

At six months old, Job Tyrese’s liver–and life–is at risk. His disease is caused by his liver not having bile ducts. The bile ducts should help the liver drain out bile to pass it on to the intestines for digesting food. As a result, the bile is trapped inside his body and this will cause liver scarring and loss of liver tissue/Cirrhosis.

The solution the doctors came up with is through liver transplant. The only curative management for Biliary atresia. Unfortunately, the procedure can only be done in a hospital in Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong or USA. More importantly, the operation costs some P3 million to P4 million ($60,000 - $80,000) specifically in Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan.

For more information, visit Hope for Job Tyrese : A Chance to Live, a fund-raising campaign to make Job’s liver transplant possible.

No matter how much you give, it will surely bring Job a long way :)

Happy Heart’s Day to All!

Beautiful Baler

Friday, January 14th, 2011

The Allure of Baler (91 of 461)

The 6-hour drive was well spent bonding with the kids as well as catching up with sleep.  But who can sleep with 3 boys in the same car?  At least one boy would be awake and so my nap was always kept at a minimum.

Our first time to be in Baler…we are not surfers but wanted to see what Baler has to offer.  We enjoyed everything!  From the food, beach, weather and the company of the Gamboa family.

The Allure of Baler (221 of 461)

It was only the last morning that we were able to play by the beach because of the good weather.  It was not raining but windy.  JX and RA had fun playing on the sand.  RA didn’t hesitate but casually crawling on the sand.  His face even slammed down but he didn’t even cry!  I don’t want to think what he ate and how much sand he ate! hahaha EWWW!  Good thing I remembered to bring our beach toys to amuse them more.

I liked the sand because it was fine but it was sticky too.  Honestly, I’m not really a beach person.  I enjoy going to the beach but the thing I do not like is the sand going into your clothes…then you have to spend time cleaning and removing the sand then how it “dirty” your room…oh well, enough of that!

We stayed at Bahia de Baler and most of the time spent our afternoons there.  Mornings are spent going to Cemento (w/c only HB and AD went because it was too early for the 2 young ones and I wanted to sleep more!) and having breakfast!  I find the food price very affordable indeed!  (I’ll talk about it some other time.)
