Dear Sis-in-law, you’re one of the most generous person I know. On top of that, you’re bubbly, you’re Ms. Congeniality and you’re genuinely nice. I couldn’t ask for a better sissy 🙂 I can’t wait to see you again. I wish you the fulfillment of your heart’s desire. **hugs**

Welcome to the Christian world Baby Callista! You’re so pretty and mestiza — so adorable. May you grow up to be healthy, smart, loving and God fearing. All the best for you and your parents 🙂
The reception was held at Cabalen, Robinsons Ermita. I’ve heard so much about the mall, unbelievably, its my first time!
Mall verdict: Uhhhh… not so good. Just a regular mall, with ordinary shops. But hubby says people swarm to this place.
It seems like Robinsons Malls is renovating their shopping centers, from this to Robinsons Galleria to Robinsons Metro East. Well, for a great malling experience better than what we have now.. go!

Have u seen any of your country’s president? I would love to meet one and chit chat. Yes, just plain chit chat, no hard core government related talks. You know, just the everyday little things that normal people talk about.
How could we perceive them as normal? President… normal?
On my last day in the US last July, hubby and I spent the afternoon before my flight at Stanford Shopping Centre… and guess who we saw? Gibo!! (I know he didn’t win,so he’s not the President (duh) but this is the closest I got to meeting a President!) We were star struck, even more when we mustered to talk to him.
Me: Hi, Sir
Me: (uhmm–thinking what to say coz he looked shocked i went up to him) Hi, we’re from the Philippines, you’re Mr. Gibo Teodoro right?
Gibo: Yes, Hi
Hubby: I am JM, this is my wife
Gibo: (Big smile then shook our hands)
Hubby: I voted for you last election (Talagang i-bring up ang last election)
Then he asked what we’re doing in the US, what we do in the Philippines. We answered and ask him if he lives in the area, he said his in-laws used to. Parang ganun yata. Basta all the time, we were kinda lost in what to say. I remember mentioning my flight back, with the time and all. Ay. talk about star struck talaga. Di alam sasabihin and isasagot.
Our conversation before we talked to him:
Hubby: Hun, si Gibo
Walks past them as if oblivious to their presence
Walk back the aisle (Gibo, wife, and son looking at the display shelves)
Then they were behind us
Knowing hubby is into politics, I was already gathering the courage to walk up to him…
And I did
Hubby got shocked
Pero sumunod sya (I know he’s glad I did )
He’s very nice and has a stature of a well educated man. His wife is regal. Looks very elite.
Oh.. and you know how I like taking pictures right? In my month long stay in the US, I never leave the house without my camera, except this day. Boo!

With all the places on my Hunt for Halloween Event part 1 entry, I didn’t find a place that we could go to…
So I searched some more and found these other malls!
We got ourselves (and a friends’) tickets for the Powerplant Trick or treat event. I remember we were supposed to go to Powerplant for last year’s trick or treat but it was postponed due to typhoon Santi. So here we are again, hoping to have fun at Rockwell! I hope theres no more typhoon now!
Ticket is priced at Php500 for one child and adult.
Php150 for additional adult — to be paid at the registration are on the day itself.
Here’s more trick or treat events and halloween activities:

Sachi’s been having diarrhea for more than a month now. How come it took us a month to get to the doctor? Well, sometimes it goes away, then it comes back. The last doctor we went to said that eating banana and getting into a high fiber diet can cure it. It somehow did, but still, her bowel hasn’t gone back to normal.
We tried changing the brand of her diaper too because she’s having too much rashes and redness on that area. It came to a point that when she’s peeing, she would cry because its painful 😦 But since it was on and off, and she’s pretty much active and playful, it wasn’t that much of a big deal. (Although, the whole thing is still at the back of our heads)
Last Sunday, when her eyes got red and almost sore the next day, we immediately went to the hospital to see our Pediatrician. Turned out he was more concerned of the diarrhea than her eyes, so he referred us to a pedia gastro specialist.
As a (partial) result to the specialist visit, we’re looking to consider lactose intolerance. Whaaaat? Sachi may be lactose intolerant?
Well, I don’t like milk… I cheat whenever I’m asked to drink milk. When I was a kid, I throw those fresh milk tetra packs secretly under the seat of the school bus or at our garbage can in the backyard. But that’s more of a preference isn’t it? So well, maybe this is my karma? Sachi may be lactose intolerant.
A little background on her milk intake — Since she was born, we were users of the Enfa line of milk, then we shifted to Pediasure + Sustagen as per mother, it is more nutritious and better for baby. Well indeed it was nutritious, waaay more nutritious than the others.
The doctor suspects that its because of the milk intake. We’re shifting to a lactose free milk for a month. Then we’ll see how her diarrhea condition goes. She takes 6-8 bottles a day, doctor said by her age she should be drinking an average of just 2 bottles. Uh oh. Milk overload na pala sya!! Based on her BMI and growth/weight chart, she’s bordering obesity. Golly gosh! Bust she doesn’t look fat. But I have to admit she’s very heavy and tall for her age.
The rashes is an effect of the acidity of her bowels. We’re hoping it will go away soon. Ako un nasasaktan and nangangati for her.
And so we’ve shifted. She’s now a Lactose Free milk user + Mamy Poko to help keep those rashes away. Its a partial result because we still have to submit a stool exam just so we can totally eliminate other possibilities of infections or illness.
Its been 4 days. Since shifting to the lactose free milk, her poop has started to solidify. Haha! talagang from liquipoop to “solidify”. Yay, thank God its just that! Scary ang month long diarrhea ha.
By the way, for her sore eyes — Sunday her eyes started to get red, Monday it was a bit swollen (that’s the day we went to the Pedia). On Tuesday, I was supposed to buy med but couldn’t find the prescription. Wednesday, I saw the prescription but her eyes are back to normal 😀 (Buti nlng I misplaced the prescription. Hehe)
I’m so happy with Sachi — hindi man lang nya ininda yung sore eyes. She was happy, active, playful, and sweet the whole time.
