It's official

I received news of this shortly after lunch today. But despite seeing the announcement in the Inquirer website (thanks to Grace), I decided to hold off informing you because I've learned my lesson. Holidays can be recalled.

Now that it's official, let me just say, "Thank you, GMA. May silbi ka naman pala sa buhay ko kahit papaano."

Two Plus One

Three years ago today, Pao and I got married.

It was easy figuring out where to celebrate our anniversary. All we had to do was pick out a restaurant and decide on doing something interesting, like escape to the beach or head on over to idyllic Bohol.

This year, we will be celebrating our anniversary with a third person in mind - the love of our lives, Malachi. We were debating yesterday whether it would be prudent parenting to have dinner with Malik in tow. I guess not. Maybe we should just go home and read Malik stories until he falls asleep. We could smell Malik's hair after and plant kisses on his cheeks to sawa.

That would be a great anniversary date.

Proud Parent Update - So Malik turned the ripe old age of five months on Sunday. The day started out pretty uneventful. As usual, Malik was in a jolly good mood when he woke up. I love that my kid is always in a happy disposition.

Good morning world!

We had the customary picture-picture. Malik and Pao and myself (pre-ligo, haha) -

Malik and Me post-ligo -

Lolo Doc arrived around lunchtime to chit chat with Malik (here snoozing) -

I cooked! Yes, you read that right. The day's menu consisted of homemade carbonara and "poor man's chicken parmigiana" (because I used cheddar instead of parmesan cheese, ang mahal kaya ng parmesan, teehee). We also had pizza delivered for good measure.

Here is Malik helping me coat the chicken with his feet -

The Gadi family arrived to celebrate with us. Malik likes Kuya Zwei's and Kuya Magus' bronzy tan -

They brought cake, aptly called Death by Tablea. My gad, this cake is super rich. Pang-mayaman.

The Zamoras came too -

All together now -

I figure Malik had a good time on his 5th month birthday. He was so tired, he quickly feel asleep that night.

Of course, there is also the matter of Malik eating solids for the first time, but that will be the subject of a separate post. Here, our goal is to just get everyone to greet the little boy, "Happy Birthday pogi / handsome / guwapo / rockstar!"

No Business Like Showbusiness

Teen star Kim Chiu has gifted herself with an Hermes bag for her 20th birthday. Her house in La Vista, which stands on a lot purchased for PhP7M, is also now under construction.

Malik, reacting to news of Kim Chiu's latest purchases: "Huwat!?!!"

Hearing showbiz news like this makes me want to ask my mom, yet again, why she did not let me join Little Miss Philippines in the 1980s. I remember begging her to let me join. I could have proceeded to That's Entertainment from there and so on and so forth, like my would be That's Entertainment groupmates, Donita Rose and Smokey Manaloto.

I have burned the midnight oil and have taken my studies seriously for 19 years to date. And yet my life's assets do not come close to Kim Chiu's talent fee for one endorsement.

I have learned my lesson and now know what to do as a parent.  Since showbusiness clearly buys you a surefire ticket to the good life, my dream is for Malachi to get into Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition 16 years from now, or at the very least, join Star Circle Batch 1,026. We're starting early, anak. From now on, I'm compiling your headshots.

That's the plan.

Working Girls 2010

Rating:
Category:Movies
Genre: Comedy
For those looking up movies to watch over the weekend, I suggest you stay away from Working Girls 2010. The movie appeared viable in principle. Afterall, we all loved the original Working Girls that showed in 1984. You remember, the movie starred (among others) Rio Locsin, Gina Pareno, Maria Isabel Lopez and who can forget, Carmi Martin as Ms. Suzane Galang, gold digger extraordinaire?

Unfortunately, this version lacked the coherence of the original Working Girls. Each story in the 2010 version is independently bland, which makes for an overall dragging movie.

I appreciated that Working Girls 2010 is a continuation of the stories of some of the original working girls. We discover that the baby that Rio Locsin was carrying in the original movie is now Jennylyn Mercado who, by some stroke of badluck, ends up a single mom too. Carmi Martin is still Suzane Galang, only this time she's older. She still runs after rich, old, dying men ("Meron akong kilala, retired general...may emphysema! Gusto mo ibalato ko na lang sa iyo?" LOL ^_^), but now she also likes to date boys young enough to be mistaken for her son.

However, I found most of the characters unnecessary. Eugene Domingo's and Ruffa Gutierrez's stories would have sufficed. Everyone else, including Jennylyn Mercado, Bianca King, Cristine Reyes and (gasp) Eula Valdez, I could have done away with. Come to think of it, Eugene Domingo is the only reason why this movie is even funny. The rest of the characters are just blah. Iza Calzado, who plays a nurse, is particularly freaky. Her scenes in my opinion are more suited for a horror movie.

All in all, I suggest you just wait for Working Girls 2010 to show on Cinema One. I'm sure you can find better use for your PhP150 (or PhP300 if you have a date) elsewhere.

Meet Steve

Our old beat-up pick-up truck Bertha worked just fine until the summer season came along. We feel so bad for Malik whenever we travel during the day because he's perspiring all over and there's really nothing he can do about it, not even complain. So guess who just bought a new car?

We did! Yey. We are first time car owners in the technical sense. Prior to this, the cars we've been driving are really just "borrowed" (more like carnapped or forcibly "loaned") from our parents. This time we discovered that they take your picture with this big key before leaving the show room...

For the books. Cheeeez.

Pao and I are not car persons. So long as a car serves its purpose of taking you to your destination, it's good. This explains why we chose a compact car that's easy on the pocket, not that we can afford to buy a fancier car anyway. Teehee

Ladida.

I'm naming him Steve, because if our car were a person, he'd be a metrosexual "guy" who goes to the gym 5x a week and lugs around a man bag.  Suspicious.

Bulaga

Malik sleeps at around 12 midnight. We're okay with this in the meantime because we still like to play with him when we get home from our jobs. Last Sunday, while I was watching Harapan, Malik was just hanging around, doing his thing at the sidelines. Bulaga -

By the way, I can't promise that I will soon stop bombarding you with pictures of our son Malik. I am, after all, a mother. At least to me, my son is the cutest, most adorable baby boy in the entire universe. Kyooot.
