Taken from Marriott Waikiki - Thanks again to Lea for the Ocean's view room. Stayed for the labor day weekend when hubby visited before he left for his deployment. It's been only 2 weeks and it seems like he's been gone for a year. It's not as bad though as compared to his previous deployments. I deal with sadness & loneliness better now. More pictures with "weekend with daddy" later on.

Windy Alternative

Tuesday, September 23, 2008


  • I took Winter back to Tripler yesterday for the follow up check..Dr said it might not be an uti..hopefully not..so just waiting for the lab results.

  • Finally I got a call for my job..I might start soon..yey!

  • Been really busy with life in general...i go in the afternoon to the family's business (catering & sewing)...help a little bit...drop of my little sister to school every morning (we leave as early as possible to beat traffic)..drive her to kumon..to her hula practice..and her shows..and drive relatives whenever they needed a ride or anything (yup dakilang Winnie haha)

  • The reason why we went home to Manila was to see our Uncle (my Mom's only brother) - he was diagnosed with Cancer around June - it was malignant already. He was already weak when we got to see him but still can talk (not clear anymore). He passed away couple of days ago Sept 21st at the age of 52. He is a Dentist. He left behind a wife (which happened to be my Auntie - my Dad's 1st cousin) & 2 kids (12 & 17). I will surely miss him. I'm just glad that I get to see him and was able to talk stories with him like we used to do when i was younger. Please pray for his soul.

This is the last pic with my Uncle..it was even funny that we took this picture about 4 times because he didnt' like the angle. I will cherish all the memories. I never told you, but I love you Tito Dante. May your soul rest in peace.

Get it going with dNeero

My Winter...

I was busy this weekend and plus Winter got very sick and took her to the ER last night. She threw up 5 times in 7 hours with a fever of 100.9F. As always I waited 2 hours to be seen and another 2 hours for the test and results. (This is at Tripler Army Medical Center - Hawaii). Doctor said she might have an uti, so there's a follow up check tomorrow at the pediatrics. Hope everything is okay with her and that antibiotics can cure it. My poor baby was so kawawa the whole day. After the suppository tylenol, fell asleep for couple of hours and she felt better when she got up. As soon as she woke up she asked for crackers and tubig. I will update more tomorrow. But for now i want to do this, saw this from someone, but accidentally closed the window before i even get her url.

"Learning Alphabets, Numbers, Shapes, Colors & More"

Not to brag about my daughter..I just want to share how proud I am for my Winter everytime she learn something new..

At 1 1/2 yr old she can identify basic colors & shapes and few letters. she can name animals

At 2, she can identify all the letters, she can point & say body parts (in english & tagalog) - ulo, buhok, kilay, pisngi, tenga, ulo, ngipin, leeg, siko etc. She can name animals & sounds they make - including monkey, horse & elephant.

At 2 1/2 - she mastered counting 1-10 (in english, tagalog, spanish) & 1-5 (in japanese). She can identify from zero - ten (even trying to count up to 20)
She can name other shapes like octagon & hexagon. She can identify blue green, & yellow green. She knows her name, my name, daddy's name. grandparents names. her birthdate, place of birth, and the year when she was born - year of the rooster.

At 2 yrs & 9 months - she's trying to write letters (she can make 'W' & shapes (circle, triangle & square). she can make a smiley face, draw a balloon & lollipop.

She lovesssss to read books (before going to bed we read "a" book..but we always end up reading 3-5 books -some short & long stories). She loves to draw, color and paint. Thank God that she got her brains from her Daddy & not from me haha.

Speaking of....We miss Daddy a lot..he finally left for his deployment..it's been 2 months that we've been apart (though he came here to visit us for the Labor day weekend - he was only here for 48 hrs - will make another post with 'a weekend with daddy')..it's been 1 week that he left the States..I still have 11 months & 3 weeks to go...I hope time flies that we get to see Daddy again...

Here's a pic of Winter at the ER last night with her popsicle from the nurse and holding her basin on her other hand..this is after 4 hours of waiting...

It's TV Time 2008!


Took these pictures in Wailea Marriot when we went to Maui.
This was the view right outside our room. Thanks to my friend Lea that works there for her discount. The room was supposed to cost us $340/day but we only paid $60/day. The view was beautiful. The hotel have the perfect location. Loved Maui and hope to visit the other island some other time.

Teen Singing Sensation

I was watching Oprah last week and was surprised that Charice was on her show again. She was on it like almost the whole show...
Oprah says there's nothing more fun than helping to make someone's dreams come true…especially when that someone is a gifted young person who really wants it and really deserves it.Charice Pempengco's dream of becoming a singer began halfway around the world in the Philippines. She found a following on the Internet after a stranger posted her jaw-dropping performances on YouTube.Oprah's producers were among the 13 million people who logged on to watch this 16-year-old sensation sing songs made famous by artists like Celine Dion and BeyoncĂ©. Then, in May 2008, Charice flew 15 hours to showcase her talent on The Oprah Show. She stole the show with a soul-stirring rendition of Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing."
Millions of viewers were moved by Charice's powerful voice—including Gayle King. "That evening Gayle called me," Oprah says. "She said she fell off her treadmill when she heard that girl." Oprah says the performance blew her Manolos off!Charice's voice wasn't the only thing that impressed Oprah. "One of the things I love most about Charice is that no matter what obstacles she's faced in her life, she's never given up on her dream of something better," Oprah says. Read more...
Something to be proud of to be a Filipino :)

more catching up to do...

from our short trip to Manila...our cousins took us out to Tiendesitas but unfortunately the weather wasn't that cooperating with us that day haha. Umulan ba naman! pero sige pasyal pa din. (It rained but we still went out.) Here are some pictures...

Pictures from Avilon Zoo, the zoo was really small (compared to the San Diego Zoo, we had an annual pass - will do a different post about it) but Avilon had some interesting animals.
To end our day..we decided to watch a movie. Opo FTFT (For the first time) haha. Yes, 1st day of showing watch kami. Hmm jologs ba? Wait wag ka sa Greenbelt 3 kami nanood! LOL. The movie was OK. There wasn't a chemistry between KC & Richard. But it was interesting to watch a movie where you can bring whatever food you want. You can choose your seat when you buy your ticket and there were phone charging station! haha. Naloka ako! Sabi sa inyo eh sobrang lost ako sa Manila. There are more pictures and kwentos...(from my 8 day trip to Manila)

more Maui updates

Day 2 - Haleakala

got up at 3 am. drove almost 3 hours to catch the sunrise. the wait and the drive was worth it. it was beautiful. almost missed it though. we didnt make it all the way to the summit

40 degress in Maui? haha yup we were freezinnnn

FYI : The peak of Haleakala volcano, at 10,023 feet (3055 m) above sealevel is the highest point on Maui, the third-highest point in the state and may be the "peak" of your experience at Haleakala National Park.
If ever going to Maui don't forget to put this in your list to do/to go.

PS. of everything that i can possibly forget..my camera was nowhere to be found..thanks to my cousins for the pictures

Time for updates : it's been long over due

Maui Trip - August 16th

Day 1
We took the Superferry from Honolulu to Kahalui, Maui. It was a family trip. We were about 20 in our party and with 4 vehicles. Yes we can take our own cars with of course additional fee. It's cool though and I think a little bit savings compared to renting a car there. The ferry left at 6am and it took us 3 hours to finally get to Maui. The other family members flew later on that day.

with cousin Charing & friendship Lea

beautiful Sunrise

we played cards at nagplantsa ng buhok lol

more to come...
