Bucketlist #10: Baby Bump x Bikini

The other day, my mother called me to ask about the picture I posted when Jeff and I went to Calatagan for our anniversary trip. She’s pertaining to my bikini photo while showing my baby bump. ‘Ano ba yung pinost mo, anak? Binibigyan mo ata ako ng kahihiyan?’, and she went on laughing for a good few seconds. Oh, my mother! On our second day at the beach, I asked Jeff to take a picture of me and my baby bump wearing my bikini. I was on my sixteenth week at that time and was starting to show. I told my mother that I will flaunt my skin for as long as it doesn’t look ugly. I also told her that I think it’s sexy to be pregnant. I don’t mind showing off my bump. The fact that it took us a while to get pregnant makes me more proud to show it off. On my seventh or eighth month, I’m gonna do a baby bump shoot with my friend, Ria. I’m sure it’s gonna be …

It’s a… TAGLET!

He joked that if the baby is a boy, we’ll call him Taglet and if it’s a girl, then it’s Taglette. Yesterday, we had our fourth month check up. My OB said that if we’re lucky, Taglet will show his gender. I talked to my tummy and asked Taglet to cooperate and show it to us. Jeff was very excited to know. He’s always told me that he’s okay with whatever gender our baby will be. I also told him I’m okay with whatever, but at the back of my head, I’ve always wanted a baby boy. Back in 2009, I was 25 and just came out of a very messy relationship, I had a funny conversation with my mom that went something like this: Me: Ma, mag-ampon nalang kaya ako? Mama: *stared at me with her big eyes bigger …

How to make your lightning cable last?

This post is long overdue. As in, almost a month ko na dapat ito na-post. Haha! Jeff and I broke our iPhones’ cables after using it for just six months. Just six months. My iPad 2’s cable is still working perfectly and it’s already two years old. So he recently bought a Capdase cable with plug for Php 1,500.00. The original cable (no plug) sells for Php 1,090.00 at the Apple store so buying the Capdase one is a steal. I saw on some DIY website ways on how to lengthen your cable’s life. I’m gonna share one here. 🙂 1. Find a pen with a spring inside. You know, those pens with different colors back in high school? That. Slaughter it and get the spring. Haha! It looks like this: 2. Get your cable. Loosen up the ends of the spring. 3. Hook one end of the spring to the cable. Make sure you don’t hurt yourself. I did hurt myself a few times before I was able to hook it hehe. 4.
