My last post was a month ago already. Time really flies when your busy working and living. Whew!
Well, I have good news! I was promoted to Senior Technical Writer during our last performance appraisal. It was something I really didn’t expect because I didn’t know I was being eyed to be promoted.
It was a good news for us because it will be very useful to our future plans. So, as prize for my promotion, I bought a Macbook Pro!
My 13″ Macbook Pro. It’s pimped out now because I bought a shell case for it and a pink keyboard protector.
It was really a dream come true! I’ve been wanting to have my own Macbook Pro ever since I started working here in Singapore. There were times when I was supposed to buy it already but I change my ind because it’s quite expensive so I just let it pass. But my promotion made a justifiable reason to buy it.
Another good news is that Baby Pork and I are already in our 30th week! !10 more weeks to go Baby and Mommy and Daddy will see you already!
I took a picture of my bulging belly and this was how it looked like:

Is it too big for my gestational stage? I hope not! A lot of people still can’t believe that I’m on my 7th month already. Anyway, just last night, Doms told me the name of our Baby.

I love it! We’re so excited to see our Baby already. This Saturday I have my OGTT Glucose tolerance test and I really hope that my results will turn out to be OK.
For our first wedding anniversary, we decided in a heart beat, to try Kuishinbo Japanese Buffet in Great World City. It was actually our first time to try this restaurant. I remember my colleagues recommending this Japanese buffet and I’m glad we did try it!
Upon entering the restaurant, I was already so overwhelmed with the food that I saw. The Chocolate Fondue fountain was so inviting that I stood in front of it just wondering what it feels like to swim in chocolate, (huh?!).
We didn’t get to take a photo of the food because we were very busy planning on what to eat first. We were given a complimentary plate of grilled lobster with melted cheese and it was heavenly!
There was a section for cooked food that serves beef teriyaki and the roasted beef. There were mounts of tempura and soft shell crab! There was also an open-air grilling station that serves grilled corn and the tastiest lamb chop that I ever tasted!
I’m not feeling very well today. I just realized 2011 is ending soon and the I haven’t accomplished much. Well, I started the year right because Doms and I got married. It was the happiest day of my life! We were able to go to Hong Kong and Macau for our honeymoon and we enjoyed it very much.
Then, Holy Week came and we were able to go back to Manila to fulfill Doms’ wish of spending Holy Week in Manila. Then came our Sydney Trip which was the highlight of our year. We really wanted to go there and we were given a chance.
The other happenings were just a blur. We were able to transfer to a new place etc. But the things that I wanted to happen, or the things that matter, never happened.
Which makes me sad.
Now, looking at the holidays for 2012 make me fear the coming 2012. Not because the Mayan calendar will end and the earth will supposedly self destruct, but because I’m fearing 2012 will just be same as 2011.

I know I should be positive for the coming year. I know I need to believe that 2012 is our year, but I need time to believe. In times like this, believing is hard for me since the frustrations and hurt that I felt in 2011 are still within me. And the fear of feeling that frustration and hurt makes me paranoid and sad and I feel like giving up.
I really hope that one of these days, my perspective will change and I will be excited for the year to come.

The month of November is really a whirlwind of surprises for me and my family. My grandmother passed away last 9 November 2011.
She was in and out of the hospital since July and the months after was just too hard for her and the family.
Here are some of the photos during her wake and funeral:
Bye Biba! Thank you for all the memories! I know you are with Lolo now. Guide us always and watch over us. We love you!
Good thing it didn’t rain this morning. I love my dress going to work!
Good vibes to me!
