After hearing mass, hubby and I ran through the list of errands that we needed to do...
- get milk and eggs from the grocery store
- pick up lunch (takeout) from our fave Vietnamese place

So we drove to the grocery store, I ran down quickly to get the milk and eggs and got back to the car.

Hubby then asked, "Vietnamese na lang no ? tapos uwi na ?"

I confirmed, "yes, Vietnamese then bahay"

and then from the back of the car came a small voice adding "and beach".
He had been asking to go to the beach for a while now.


Can't decide where Swe-cha understood our Tagalog conversation or he just has really good timing.

Bonding over Sharks

Hubby and I spent our Sunday bonding over SyFy Channel's series of Shark-themed B-movies.

- Dinoshark
- Mega Shark vs Mecha Shark
- Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus
- Attack of the Two-headed shark
- Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus

Had a great time bonding while making fun of the plot, special effects, cheesy lines and bad acting.

We find it interesting to see familiar names. For example, Stargate SG-1's Teal'c, Christopher Judge, is in "Mega Shark vs Mecha Shark" and Stargate Atlantis' Mr Woolsey and Star Trek's Emergency Medical Hologram, Robert Ricardo, is in "Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus.  Since we are both fans of the Stargate and Star Trek series, naka-relate na kami agad :)

High on Milestones

It's been a while since I blogged and I'm still exhausted from our recent trip but I cannot pass up this chance to record the milestones that we experienced today.

- In the morning, Swe-cha brought my shoes to me while I was getting ready for work and said "Bye bye, Mommy"

- Some time after dinner, Swe-cha went to the bathroom pooped in bathroom by himself. He's been good about going to the bathroom when he needs to and I let him go by himself but I do follow close behind to monitor him. This time, I saw that he sat down, did his thing and flushed. He did not wipe but immediately pulled up his pants, I intervened and gave him a bath.

- Hubby decided to mow the front lawn. *eyes wide* Yes. On a weekday!
Apparently, he realized that tomorrow is a Wednesday (our yard waste pickup day). We have 2 yard waste containers, the first of which I've already filled 1/3 - 1/2 when I started pulling out the weeds*** on Monday afternoon. Normally, we fill up both containers to the brim when we mow the lawn so it dawned on him that with all the weeds I already pulled, there was no way we were going to be able to fit the cuttings if he waited till the weekend. He decided to do the front yard and when he was done, he did part of the side yard as well. He stopped when it got dark just before 9pm.

As I told my friend this afternoon, "the one good thing I can see when you hit rock bottom is that from there on, there is really nowhere else to go but up..." =)


*** more on weeds later. Kainis ito.
