Bucketlist #9: Bundle of Jeff and Joy

A few days ago, Jeff and I finally announced that we are expecting our first child. It was a long journey of waiting and trying, and it is finally here. Let me tell you the story of how we actually got pregnant. I used to go to Asian Hospital for my check ups. My OB there was my doctor for about six months. She was the one who prescribed me to take metformin. After three months of taking the metformin she gave, I got tired of all the stomachache and throwing up. It was also a bit hard to find her on some days. Sometimes, I file leaves only to find out that she’s not going to the clinic. I decided to find a new OB. I went to Healthway Greenbelt 5 in September 2013 and the OB on duty was Dr. Cheryl Roces-Barrameda. To my surprise, she is also a sonologist. I read somewhere before that it is advisable to have an OB-Sono so she knows what’s really going on inside your ovaries. Haha! So …

Bucketlist #34: Get A Tattoo

I’ve always been fascinated with tattoos. Back in college, I thought yeah, I’ll have a tattoo one day. The plan got shelved when I got old and priorities started piling up. It was only recently when I found time to write my bucketlist again. Today, I am crossing out #34 on my list — Have a tattoo. My dream of having a tattoo was rekindled after I met Carol in September 2010. She’s the long time partner of the popular tattoo artist of P&P Tattoo, Myke Sambajon. Yep, you guessed it right, she’s a walking canvas of her partner’s art.  We met through a common friend, Shiela, when we joined the Ondoy No More Run in Thunderbird Resorts.  She only has this tattoo on her leg when we met. Now, her whole lower right leg is full of tattoo! I’ve always liked the Ichtus. It’s the Jesus fish. I thought for a time that I’ll have that tattooed on my nape, but then it became a trend in 2006-ish, so I changed plans. (It may …

Everyone has their own set of things that they’d like to accomplish before they die. This list gave me an idea to have a bucketlist series on my blog. This is going to be fun!

Get married. Get pregnant. Wear bikini on the beach while pregnant. Visit Boracay. Go to an obscure beach. Go scuba diving.  Own a house.  Own a red car.  Own a pair of Nike’s. Read a book in one sitting. Volunteer at a hospice. Learn how to drive. Go abroad. Go to New York City. Meet Ray Allen. Hold someone’s hand inside the plane. Watch a live Purefoods basketball game. Meet and have a picture with Alvin Patrimonio. Go to Batanes. Skydive. Visit El Nido. Ride a hot air balloon.  Buy a nice TV. Go to the Eiffel Tower. Own a Louis Vuitton See snow. Have a …

Bucketlist #27: Visit El Nido, Palawan

Antipolo, as we all know, is on top of the mountain located in the east of Manila. Growing up there, I only saw the beach twice when I was in gradeschool– during excursions in my mom’s company. She used to work for a textile factory and every year, they schedule trips to Matabungkay or Quezon beaches. My next few trips would be with my family in Pangasinan and Quezon. I’ve always loved the beach. The smell of salty water and the roughness of the sand under my feet are things that I’d kill to have every single day. Okay, no, not kill. Haha! In highschool, we studied about about geography and I was amazed on how beautiful El Nido and Tubbataha Reef. I then promised myself that I will one day see El Nido. I did.  Big Lagoon, El Nido, Palawan I will be writing about this one day at a time. I will be sharing photos that I took, tips, and our experience. Ready? Let’s go!
