The week that was (August 19 - 25)

Sunday: My daughter and I had breakfast at Mc Donald's and got a free newspapaer for being loyal customers to them. XD Our morning was pretty much fine and steady as I let my daughter enjoy her playtime to her hearts content. By 2:00pm, we decided to go to SM Megamall instead of going to BHS as my wife gets worried that we may arrive there late in the afternoon.When we got to the mall, we head off to the Atrium to enjoy some lunch as there was a food sale that time. With no hesitation, I choose Yabu as our pitstop for lunch and spent the next two hours over lunch (I'll write a blog about this). After our late lunch, we strolled around cyberzone as my wife wanted to check-out some of the latest gadgets she wanted to buy. She saw some but the price was pretty expensive as of the moment. We then had coffee over Seattle's Best as we waited for the sun to set as well as rested our aching bodies as Migmig kept on running around the mall. We got home at almost 7:00pm and I was able to get some much needed rest. I went online as well to catch-up and play my Mafia Wars game.

Monday: We were unable to get out as we got up late. Mornings were just good and after my daughter slept, I went online for probably an hour before she got up. Late in the afternoon, as I change Migmig's diaper for the second time, her uncontrollable habit came again and I had no choice but to hit both her hands. I hit both once but as lightly as I could yet she didn't seem to understand yet. The second time, I hold both hands tightly before hitting them and scolding her altogether. In an instant, she cried out loud and I continued crying until I got her diapers changed. I checked both her hands to see if its swelling and thank God it didn't. It dawned on me that my temper needs to be checked and I have to be more hands-on with my daughter. With my contract ending after September, this would test again my temper and patience. Since she didn't sleep in the afternoon, we went to Nanay at almost 6:00pm to let her enjoy the cool breeze of the wind and let her run to her heart's delight. I feel so guilty being hard on my daughter as she doesn't even know what she's doing. I just hope that would be the only time I do that and I'll do everything to be Migmig's gentle dad.I was able to get online for an hour before joining my wife and baby in bed.

Tuesday: By 8:00am, my baby and I went down to have some fun outside though we didn't stay that long as weather was quite unpredictable. Her mom got up a little bit late so I let our daughter wake her up to keep her going. Up to now, I feel guilty spanking my baby for her uncontrollable behavior the other day. I left early for work as my wife took care of our baby for the day. I took the 3-bus route and got to Makati early. I had lunch at Jollibee since I got so hungry already. Most of my colleagues were there already and we agreed to have a pizza party being still a holiday in the Philippines. My colleague called Yello Cab and ordered an 18" pizza. I got to dig-in even if I still feel full as I upload some photos on my blog to make it much better.Work was pretty much slow as I didn't had dinner that night. My tummy was still full as I wanted to do some dumping XD. Well, I had to consume a litter of melon milk just to make my digestive system going before going home.

Wednesday: With my body still wanting to get some more sleep, I had to get up by 8:15am to take my daughter down as she got up ahead of her mom and I. We went out for a couple of minutes to buy some bread for her to nibble while waiting for her mom to get up. Unfortunately, she got up late at 10:00am and everything followed but her sister got up early to take care of our baby which gives me time to prepare early. Again, I took the 3-bus ride and got to Makati with time to spare. Lunch was at Jollibee for the second straight day and I had the same food I ordered the other day just to make me full. Work was pretty much okay as I got some tickets to work on while waiting for time. By 5:00pm, I went to Powerbooks in GB4 to attend The Jinri Experience (I'll write a blog about it). I was away for two hours before returning back to the office to some additional requests. By 8:45pm, I went out again to have dinner because my officemate let me smell her grilled liempo that she's having for dinner. I went straight to Chicboy to order their Cebu lechon liempo and ate pretty much before going back to complete my shift.

Thursday: Got up a bit late but still we went out to have breakfast at Mc Donalds. She ate quite a bunch but she keeps on playing with her food so I had to guide her. Then we went back and make sure to wake her mom up to get going. Then its my turn to put her to sleep and she was able to doze-off at 11:00am. I went online for an hour before getting ready not for work but to attend some events. I took the LRT to Cubao before taking another ride to Eastwood as I got to try Stacker's Baked Fried Chicken (I'll write a blog about this). After the event, I freshen up and took a cab going to Annapolis in Greenhills to attend the Non-Print Day Lecture Sessions with Mr Raymund Isaac as the speaker (I'll write a blog about this). By 5:30pm, I got there and signed up as Sir Jo played Lorax on video. I left his studio at almost 11:00pm and took a cab straight home. But not without going online for another hour just to catch-up online. When I'm finally home, my wife was still online and I waited for my turn to do some updates before finally going to bed.

Friday: Migmig got up early as she felt hungry already. I feed her first before I went down to do some morning rituals. Then my mom paid us a visit and went upstairs to see her grandchild. Then we went out to visit Nanay and spent the next hour there as my daughter walks and runs to her heart's delight. After my daughter had her bath, I was surprised she fell asleep as early as 10:30am. I went online until noon as she gets up occasionally and checks if I'm still there. She fell asleep again which gave me the cue to get ready for work. I stopped by Sisig Hooray at The Landmark to get a quick lunch then to BTIC for some ice cream before reaching the office. I was surprised that I'll be the only one in my shift but I don't mind anyways. Work was pretty much steady as I got a few tickets to work on. I'm also trying to do some revisions in my blog to make it more presentable and allow me to earn some money through writing. By 7:00pm, I had dinner at BFast again but not without braving some rain at this time of the night. My dinner was pretty quick as I have to get back in the office to wait for my colleagues in the night shift. And good thing they arrived as I'm not keen on going straight-shifts again XD. By 11:00pm, I took the next bus going home despite heavy rains. 

Saturday: Both me and Migmig got up late as my body still feels the need for sleep. After my morning rituals, we went out to visit Nanay and for my baby to have her exercise by walking near and far. Then we went back to wake her mom to get going. After Migmig's bath, I let my wife to put her to sleep so I could get some rest and get ready for work. I took the 3-bus ride again despite not feeling well as I think I have my blood pressure spike-up again. Lunch was at Jollibee as I got to Makati early before settling down here in the office. I set-up my laptop and warm it up for an hour before doing some photo-editing, I started at past 3:00pm though my pace wasn't as good as the previous Saturday's I've edited since I feel sick as of the moment. Thank God to my playlist on my laptop, my solo days in the office wasn't that boring.  For dinner, its still from Jollibee as I got to edit a lot of photos before my laptop heats up and I have to turn it off before leaving the office. Good thing my colleagues arrived just in time to keep me company before I leave. I took a cab on my way home as I feel so tired and sleepy that I wanted to go to bed once I get home.
