Fondue night

Old Swiss Inn - that's where we once celebrated Kuya's birthday.  And every Kuya's birthday, on Valentine's Day, traffic is terrible with everybody going out on a date.

And so Jenny invited us for a fondue night at Old Swiss Inn, this time at their Makati branch.
 We had cheese fondue.
 We had beef with lots and lots of choices for sauce.
 As recommended, we tried their Toblerone cheese cake.
 And of course, we had their chocolate fondue.
Pardon me for the names of the dishes.  Dining out on food cooked on the spot with kids is such a challenge.

Last year.

It was just exactly last year, Sept. 23, 2010, when Omar and I took our first step for our dream to come true.

We decided to take the plunge and build our own home.  

I went to BPI near our home in Paranaque to inquire for a housing loan.  We were able to get our loan from BPI but from Malolos Branch.  It took us quite some time to finalize the concept, apply for permit and get our loan.

A year after our first step, here's our dream in progress.
I'm so excited.  I'm so scary.  This is our new baby.

Omar received a BIG project in his shop early second quarter of this year.  It's a total wrecked BMW X5.  He have to order and purchase the parts abroad from his friend and source out some parts as well.  There were delays in delivery of some parts so he wasn't able to deliver the unit on time.  The client was so understanding and he likes Omar for he's been reporting every progress to him.

In my own little way, I helped him by showing online sites of auto paint shops using Spectrum.

Then it's time to deliver the unit.  It was sooo nice!  It was like sparkling new.  I'm so proud of him.  The unit stayed in the shop for almost half a year but the wait was worth it.  

They towed the car to the BMW shop and everybody in the shop was there to send the unit off.  It was heart warming to see it go - attachment for almost half a year plus the pride for being able to finish such a job.

Omar provided snacks for everybody but just as we were to enjoy the food, we received a call that the BMW X5 hit another X5 in the BMW shop just as they were putting the unit down from the tow truck, hitting its rear bumper to another's front bumper.

Awwww... so we will be seeing the X5 in the shop again and will be spending more weeks with him.

I'll post photos soon.

Despedida Dinner

Daddy and Mommy are due to leave for Canada tomorrow for 2 months.  We found a reason to eat out.  We seldom eat in restaurant now a days.  They often stay at Bulacan and we stay in Manila.  

We had dinner at the Mini Shabu-Shabu Restaurant at the Fort.  It's been a while since we've eaten in this restaurant.  It's Daddy's favorite.  It may not be kid friendly but my kids survived it.

Have a safe trip Daddy and Mommy!  You deserve the break.

Big Toys for Small Boys

Winter's favorite spot in his Papa's shop.

A restored 1963 1/2 Mustang.

Loves cars

The little boy is just soooo like his Papa.  He loves cars.

Lola Olive gave him cars crocs.  He did not want to wear it at first for it was pretty tight, but for the love of cars, he wore it to school today.
 Ninong Ojay and Tita Yang gave him cars sando and shorts too.
And Winter went home wearing just the socks and his yaya holding the shoes.

Mama, I show you!

Winter welcomed me at home with this remark.  He was so excited and dragged me to our room to show me his work of art.
Baby, Mama's happy you love arts and you're creative.  But please spare our wall with your art. You can post your stickers on papers or your books or bags or toys, but not on our walls please.
Sorry to spoil the surprise for Mama, but you have to clean it up.  Thanks Fifi Ate for helping.

Winter's 1st Family day.

It was Playschool's Family Day and we're with the blue team.

We came in late and missed the cheering part.  And as soon as we got to the court, I was in a game without even getting our seat.
Our team won and the kids had a grand time.  
We brought hotdog for our food to share and had snack with other families from the school and from the neighborhood.

I'm not in the photos again, I'm the photographer =(.
