#tagLekwatsa: How We Ordered Nene Chicken in Seoul

I am an absolute chicken lover. #ChickenIsLife talaga for me, especially now that I stopped eating rice haha! And I super love Korean chicken. Yung legit ha. Bonchon kasi is too fastfood haha! I started loving Korean chicken way before I watched Kdramas. Lately ko lang nalaman na nagde-deliver pala si Kim Bok Joo at si Cha Eun Sang ng friend chicken. In case you don’t know, chicken and beer is very popular in South Korea. I did a little research and they call it Chimaek. According to Wikipedia, Chimaek (Korean: 치맥) is a compound word formed from Chicken and Maekju, the Korean word for “beer”. It refers to a combination of chicken (usually fried or spicy) as Anju and beer served around evening in many South Korean restaurants,[2] including a number of specialized chains.

Custom R2D2 Nappy

I’ve been looking far and wide for an R2D2 nappy, but I keep failing. So I thought of just customizing one for Taglet. First I bought an EEUC white Alva 4.0 in a nappy group on Facebook. Syempre baka pumalpak ako diba, so sa luma ako mag-start haha! It came a day later and I knew I had to get my hands on it right away. I looked for a cutie design online and did a sketch using a pencil.

It’s a Bump!

It’s been five months since my maternity shoot. Taglet is now four-months-old and I am posting this just now. Because life happened and I wasn’t able to write a lot. Haha! Anyway, this was shot by my good friend and Taglet’s ninang, Ria Bantugan of Graceworks Photography. Another friend, Mek Loo, did my amazing day make up. Looking at these pictures, I never thought that I was that big. Like really, really big! My stomach was huuuuge! And my nose? Humungous! Why did I do this? Simple. I wanted to love my body while it is so big and full of stretch marks because I am carrying a wonderful gift inside me. I sometimes rub my belly and miss the big bulge that I carry around. But don’t get me wrong, I love every single day spent with my son. This was shot in The Columns Legaspi Village where we stayed for a while during my pregnancy. Anyway, here are some of the photos! If you want to get any of Ria or Mek’s service, …

The Lakas-Maka-OC Way of Storing Breastmilk

I am not OC. Well, I am just particular about some things being in order, but I am not OC about everything. But when it comes to my son’s milk, I am very, very OC. You can’t blame me or any mother out there for storing our milk in a very orderly manner. Before I share how I store my breastmilk, let me first share with you this guideline from Medela.
