A while back a friend gifted me with this delectable dish from a restaurant called Coconut House. Since then, I have been wanting to visit the said establishment if only to get another dose of the tasty Adobo with gata but I have not had the opportunity to go there. The craving was renewed however when I got to watch a feature from Carmina and Pekto's show, Day Off. The Coconut house was recommended as one of the must try places when dining out. Now, I also want to try their coco halo-halo... hmmm, hopefully, I'd be able to finally visit this restaurant this summer and try their mouth-watering goodies!

While I was preggy with Adam, I didn't get to experience what most of my friends and relatives said they did while they were pregnant - morning sickness. So, these days I'm thinking "be careful what you wish for..." It's not like I wished for it, I sort of just shrugged at them when they were saying that it was hard for them to wake up in the morning because you feel like you're going to throw up any second... Well, here it is... and worse, because I also feel it in the afternoon and sometimes at night!
The solution: Currently eating small but frequent meals; I always have saltines and/or hard candies in my bag; and I take 5-minute naps whenever I get overpowered by drowsiness. Hopefully, I would be able to overcome this stage really soon because it is quite a damper on the happiness of being pregnant, not to mention, it becomes a hassle when I have to attend to Adam but I feel so sick to do so. :(

It's almost a month since my last post and I have been dying to write about what's been happening to me these past few weeks... I'll just have to compress everything into one short post for now because I am still reeling with the flurry of activity that has been my world lately.
First, let me start with a big, happy bit of news: I'm pregnant! Yes, baby #2 is on the way... I am now 7 weeks pregnant and counting.
The thing is, I have been suffering from asthma attacks again. I even developed skin allergies from I don't know what, a couple of days back and had to take my anti-allergy meds again. That's something I haven't done for a couple of years now, so it was quite a surprise to me. There's this constant feeling of nausea and drowsiness that I didn't experience while I was pregnant with Adam before. I have gained almost a kilo of weight already and I haven't even reached my 2nd month of pregnancy! I'm scheduled to have my first ultrasound next week so...
In the office, a transfer of offices has been already announced and I have to carefully pack and label everything before the big move. I don't have a secretary/clerk to assist me so I have to do all these on my own. It's a good thing that the office I'm moving to is just a couple of doors away from my current one so it's not going to be a huge adjustment, but still, the amount of documents I need to transfer is quite a lot and the office I'm moving to is relatively smaller so it's going to be a challenge to fit everything into my new space.
As for my talkative, active baby boy, Adam, he's just a little fireball that keeps me going. Currently, he's into games in the I-touch like "Traffic Rush", "Sniper Strike", "Cops and Robbers", "Tower Bloxx", and "Pig Rush". While Pororo, Pocoyo, Handy Manny and Cars are the cartoons he never tires of watching. He's more conversational lately although some of his words, you'd have to strain your ears and imagination before you can understand. Like one time he kept asking for "Picky Caws" when he was actually asking for his "Mickey Mouse" stuffed toy. Then there was one time he said he wanted to eat "Pochik" when he wanted to eat "Pork Steak". But most of the time we can understand him and is very talkative...
Well, I guess that's all the update I can give right now. Hopefully I'd be able to post soon and report more often but I can't really say anything for sure these days.
