Learn how to dress your pregnant self stylishly in Mom 101

Happy Mommy's Month!

It's been a very busy past few weeks for me—I have new blog partners and new endorsements! Mother's Month (hehe because we all know we have to appreciate moms all this month!) is just as busy. The scariest part is I have new speaking engagements! I'm frightened and excited at the same time because with my workshops, I usually just speak to 10-20 people. My talks this month have an audience of 120-150!

The first one is this Saturday, at the Mom 101 & Breastfeeding 101 series of St. Luke's Medical Center. This series is by the OBG Department and this weekend's instalment has a summer theme. I'll be talking about how to dress your baby bump stylishly even when it's so hot!

My segment is sponsored by Elin Maternity Wear. I was the first ambassador of Elin way back in 2014. It was so fun to have all my maternity clothes for free! Thanks, Elin! Actually, I still wear Elin because they have clothes for breastfeeding moms, too. And if you check out their site, they have other clothes that moms and non-moms can wear. Shop here:

I hope you can invite your pregnant friends to come spend the day with us on Saturday! Just register through the number stated on the poster above. See you!

Nabasa niyo na ba ang mga kuwento ni Jollibee?

Tawa muna tayo today, guys. Sobrang init ng social media this week. Grabeng bangayan alang-alang sa ating bayan. I wasn't able to blog about our visit to Kidzania and the two secrets to a happy marriage! Next week na lang.

I'm stepping away from Facebook this weekend dahil di ko na ma-take, lalo na't nakatanggap ako ng mga di kanais-nais na words from some people who didn't like that I wasn't supporting their candidate. But before I logged off, a friend shared this photo from this page:

Haha, a fat joke in this time of political correctness! Much funnier than that notorious non-joke definitely. So I checked out the FB page called Mga Kuwento ni Jollibee (fan-made lang, not by the brand... daw) and sobrang nag-lift ang mood ko because of these:

 Proud siya sa big butt niya!

But Jollibee will do anything to look slim, too.

But not too slim...

The fake Jollibee posts are numerous! Hindi talaga magaya si Bee!

Kasi maraming may crush sa kanya, being the biggest bee in the country:

Jollibee also gets kilig when he meets celebs:

 But we all know Jollibee is the biggest celeb of them all. Na-kidnap tuloy siya.

I like these. He's so landi!

Type ko rin the Throwbacks and Flashbacks:
P2.95 ang Yumburger!!!

And because he can't resist taking jabs at the competition (which I love, btw!):

 Aww. Friends na kasi kayo!

As for the elections, maging friends na tayong lahat!

Ika nga ni Bee, "Happy weekend, everyone!" Wag na muna tayo mag-Facebook unless gusto niyo mapasaya ng Mga Kuwento ni Jollibee!

New year

i like my body when it is with your
body. It is so quite new a thing.
Muscles better and nerves more.
i like your body. i like what it does,
i like its hows. i like to feel the spine
of your body and its bones, and the trembling
-firm-smooth ness and which i will
again and again and again
kiss, i like kissing this and that of you,
i like, slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz
of your electric fur, and what-is-it comes
over parting flesh… And eyes big love-crumbs,

and possibly i like the thrill
of under me you so quite new
- e.e.cummings

Happy 17 years of love and happy 9 years of marriage, my dearest darling Vince. I love our late night chats, with hushed giggles and whispered wonders. I won't share them with my readers, no worries, but I'm really happy you told me what you told me last night. The longer I'm with you, the more I understand love and commitment and life. Thank you for letting me grow bigger than myself. Thank you that every day feels like new, even the days when we're unshowered and elbow deep in childcare—which is more like every day now—every day is still a new adventure because there's always something new to find out about each other and life on this good earth. Even after all these years, we feel new.
