Get Better Soon Son
It is terrifying to have fever nowadays due to A(H1N1) pandemic scare. I also learned last Monday from Teacher Ann, his adviser, that three of Jett's fellow Kinder students from other section were also absent due to high temperature. I asked his pediatrician, Dra. Mendoza if I need to rush him to the hospital that time to see if Jett was showing signs of swine flu. She told me that swine flu, like a normal flu, has to have symptoms of high fever, cough and colds, poor appetite, and had recent travel or exposure with people of such disease. Since Jett had only fever with no cough and colds, she advised me to observe first his condition, just stay home and make him rest, and give paracetamol on regular schedule.
I hope tomorrow if there are already classes (today was suspended due to typhoon Feria), Jett will resume his schooling and catch-up for last Tuesday's lessons.

Our Dream Modern House
The whole concept of this house, starting from its floor plan design, the arrangement of the rooms, the color of its facade, the accent color of the exterior, were all emanates from me (ehem!). Maybe if I'm familiar on how to use the auto-cadd, I might also have done it myself, printed it in blueprint, and just look for an architect to sign it, hahaha!
One attestation that I was completely succumbed in house designing when I started putting myself into this project, was my perfect attendance from all of the interior design/home improvement/construction exhibits assembled in SMX Convention Center and World Trade Center for the past two years. Together with my kids, and few instances with my hubby, I bring them along with me on these events. Even when we were in Kuala Lumpur last April, we were present during their Home Dec 09 Exhibition held in Kuala Lumpur Convention Center, wherein I found a very lovely and durable laminated flooring. Which I learned later on, that that brand is not available here in Manila. I should have bought some boxes already if I only knew. The said laminated flooring is a clever reproduction of a real wood. It is a good buy and not pricey when converted to peso, compared to Kronotex that we can easily find in home depots all over the Philippines. The difference is the former is made from Malaysia, and the latter is made from Germany.
We only got one shot, and this might be the first and the last time that we gonna build a house, so we might as well give it our best foot forward putting our hands on this dream house.
The house is bright and airy, with lots of glasses, wood, and steel as one of the major compositions of an ultra-modern home. Natural lights are prominent all over the house, you need not to turn-on your lights all throughout the daytime. It is like putting the outdoors in. Water feature in the living room is one of the focal points of the house, which is very visible as you enter the main door. We all know that the soothing sound of the water gives calming effect to people, and it is good in fengshui as well :), just don't turn it off to avoid the risk of dengue, hahaha!
Oh well, we still have to wait for a while until we see the product of our sweat and yes, even tears. Tears of stress, joy, and in one point along the way, disappointment (which I relay in another story) :) .
Have a blessed abode everyone!!!

Happy Father's Day Honey!
Anyway, this little presentation from us is nothing new for you I know. But I'm pretty sure and according to Rene Mariano :), it will come as a surprise to you because you least expect this, right?! It's been a while since I last did anything similar to this. You know that I'm too occupied about the construction of our house, and it consumes so much of my time more than the physical, emotional and mental as well. But I'm back, and will never say die, hahaha! I should have done a simpler plan of resurfacing that element of surprise, but again, knowing me :), I took a little over more complicated course of giving it a bang.
I was running out of words as you noticed in the video :) . First, the usually fighting kids on the background are destructive :). Second, It was spontaneous, and I just thought about it only last Friday. I in fact finally came up with a more precise concept a few minutes before we shoot our takes. Post production was a little bit time eater also coz it was my first encounter with the Windows Movie Maker, hahaha.
But on top of that, it came out something ...mmmm .... touchy ... and funny.
Happy Father's Day Honey!

Our First Ever Getaway as Foursome in CEBU!!!
The hotel that we stayed in, is totally class A in terms of amenities, service, and mouth-watering food. We in fact enjoyed the hotel place, more than we enjoyed Cebu, hahaha! We splashed to their edgy swimming pool with jacuzzi, shower falls, and mini swimming track for those who love to swim. The kids really had a great time. And for myself, how can I forget to try their massage service, which I forgot to remember what it is termed, hehe, but certainly not swedish nor thai, but uses aroma oil as well, and concentrated more at my stressed back area. Love it!
Well, about Cebu... The beach line in Mactan is unclean (I'm sorry to Cebuanos but this is the undeniable truth), with sharp objects you can feel at the sole of your feet. Definitely, not a water-fun experience for our kids, especially myself. It is so yucky! Unlike in Boracay that offers a very clean, white and fine sand walk moment. However, the jetski and boat ride is cool!
Furthermore, we find people in Cebu displeasing, referring to cab drivers, boat ride middlemen, service crew in SUTUKIL (a well-known open air restaurant of seafoods). We can really feel that they are after the money that we will shell out as tourists, and not to show kindness and honesty as local tenants. That is why it is understandable, that some foreign visitors like Koreans, are very mean to them, because of their money first attitude. It's a good thing we are not Koreans, hahaha! We just try to understand that their lives are less fortunate in terms of livelihood, and have not enough education to comprehend that tourism is a service-oriented word, and not realizing that theirs is a place, people from busy world are longing to go back time and time again. But with their behavior, I don't wanna go back to Cebu if we will stay not in Crown Regency Cebu, hehehe.
Mmmm.. in scale of 1-5, I'll give 5 stars for the absolute HOTEL fun experience. and 2 stars for the CEBU tour around. But at the end of the day, I think the most important thing is that, we went there to relax, unwind, grasp a new environment, forget the not so good recent memories, not think about the house and other people, and most especially bond together as a family. Which I certainly believe really did happen. It's refreshing to have an escape once in a while... or often... hehe!

My Cute Little Kulit Kiddos
Jett has been a waggish child since then. And one of his waggishness, is to make faces in front of the camera. But what made me giggle more is baby Jedd's reaction. Upon glimpsing at the photos, you will think that he is starting to get scared. But knowing this curious kitten, he is in fact discerning, observing, and absorbing his Kuya Jett's every act. So he will be a carbon copy next time. They are the best buddies, Hahaha! These two angels are the happiest part of our life.
