Building Strike Gundam

Saturday, April 19

As promised, we bought Kuya Zach his Gundam robot as a reward for his gold award in school. Surprise! As we opened the box, the robot needs to still be assembled. There are lots of details and tiny parts which looks like it can't be done in just one sitting. So we waited for this long vacation to start building the full package. Daddy and the two boys started building last night, which took them 1 hour for the first main part which is the body unit. Then this morning, they assembled the head. And now they're fixing the arm units.

You can't complete the robot without looking at the manual. Well, it's in Japanese so you need to just follow the images and numbers. One important thing you need to know is don't cut out all the parts all at the same time. Or you'll end up mixing and confusing the parts all together. Parts are located in different beds. For example, you need to do the left arm, you need to find the N bed first then cut only the number 13 and 14 parts. Then find the Q bed and cut number 2.
You need sharp cutters like, the Daddy used a nail cutter and cutter. And most importantly, building Strike Gundam robot can't be done by a child alone but needs daddy strength. So there's going to be lots of bonding time making a Gundam robot.

More updates to come!

The Best Things In Life Are....

Tuesday, April 15

Nakapangalan na nga saken yung chocolate, may umaangkin paren, tsk tsk! Shinaran naman nya 'ko. Buti na lang may naabutan ako. Muntik ko nang hindi matikman.
Thanks to Mickey, my hubby's officemate, for the pasalubong. You're so thoughtful. Pati ako meron, heehee. Thank you!
Some quotes about chocolate that I found online:
“There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate.”
― Linda Grayson
“Strength is the capacity to break a Hershey bar into four pieces with your bare hands - and then eat just one of the pieces.”
― Judith Viorst, Love & Guilt & The Meaning Of Life, Etc
“My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished 2 bags of M&M's and a chocolate cake. I feel better already.”
― Dave Barry
“Can I come back and see you sometime?"
"Long as you bring me some chocolate," Gramma said, and smiled. "I'm partial to chocolate."
"Gramma, you're diabetic."
"I'm old, girl. Gonna die of something. Might as well be chocolate.”
― Rachel Caine, The Dead Girls' Dance

“Chocolate says "I'm sorry" so much better than words.”
― Rachel Vincent, My Soul to Save
― Dave Barry

“If there's no chocolate in Heaven, I'm not going.”
― Jane Seabrook, Furry Logic Laugh at Life

“Chemically speaking, chocolate really is the world's perfect food. ”

“As with most fine things, chocolate has its season. There is a simple memory aid that you can use to determine whether it is the correct time to order chocolate dishes: any month whose name contains the letter A, E, or U is the proper time for chocolate.”
― Sandra Boynton, Chocolate: The Consuming Passion

“Flowers wilt, jewelry tarnishes, and candles burn out...but chocolate doesn't hang around long ehough to get old.”
― Sr. Cocoa Loca

“May your life be filled, as mine has been, with love and laughter; and remember, when things are rough all you need is ... Chocolate.”
― Geraldine Solon, Chocolicious

“Life is like a box of chocolates, You never know what you're gonna get.”

― Winston Groom, Gump and Co.

“Chocolate is like my best friend and the most intense pleasure at the same time, perhaps not the most intense, but the most regular and reliable one.”

― Chloe Doutre-Roussel

Oh, I could go on and on....but for now.....

Chocolate lovers, raise your laden-with-melted-chocolate hands! Or if in any case, raise your chocolate bars soon to be gone :D :D :D


Sweet Babies And Kids

Thursday, April 10

Late uploads
Last March, my cousin and her two kids visited us from Bicol. They traveled via bus from Bicol to Laguna, two kids and two bags in tow. Amazing ang will power ng cousin ko'ng 'to! They stayed for a night and was fetched by their cousins from the other side of her family to attend a wedding in Quezon.
I guess baby Alexandria "Alex", was so fond of pretty girls like her. She smiled and laugh all the time and especially when I played with her.
Last April 9, a holiday here in the Philippines, we were once again visited by kids. And this time, my hubby's twin bro's family visited us. They gave Zach their present for being a gold awardee in school. We also gave them pasalubong from hubby's trip to Sydney. The shirt that Zach was wearing in this pic was their very thoughtful gift. These photos were shot in SM sta. rosa Toy Express and McDonald's. We bought kuya Zach the promised Gundam robot as his reward for getting the gold award in class.
Toy express instantly became a playground when we came. Kulang nga ang boy-barkada coz Dionne attended his jollibee kiddie crew session. Imagine the rumble Kung kumpleto ang barkada...and in 3 months time they will have a princess among this brood of boys. Buti na lang, finally, it's a girl!
See you again soon guys!

My Kids Visit Museo Pambata

Monday, April 7

Looking at my kids' photos, I could just sigh with mixed emotions seeing how they've grown so fast, reusable diapers long gone.

We left our kids (and Cloudy, our dog) at the care of my in-laws this weekend. Coz I and hubby need to attend a Worship Camp in Tagaytay, organized by our church. Their aunt ook them to Museo Pambata and I'm so sure they had a great fun. They were there the whole day! Museo Pambata was recently renovated so there are more areas to be explored by the kids and kids at heart. It's good that they were able to stay longer in Museo coz during their field trip, it's just a very short visit that they weren't able to really explore and understand the learnings in every area. Museo Pambata is a great outlet for kids. It's a place that encourages children to imagine, as we know that they learn through lots of imaginations and role playing.
Side note: Don't be confused that in my previous posts, hubby was in Sydney, Australia. Time flies really fast! He's now back home after a month and the next day, we traveled to Tagaytay for the Camp. Busy busy!
Have a great day everyone!
