The Weekend That Was

Hello, Monday!

How was you weekend? Mine was quite eventful. Let me fill you in thru these photos.

I ordered this Chowking’s Panda Pao for the little girl. Too cute to eat, no?

Photo 10-11-14, 1 06 47 PMWe roamed around the mall and saw this Primadonna flats. I think I want it. I didn’t it yet, though. What do you think?

Photo 10-11-14, 1 53 48 PMThe little girl had her flu vaccine so as a reward, I promised to take her to the loomband activity happening at the event center. Here she was making one. She didn’t finish it though because the first girl teaching her just left her in the middle of doing this desing. Good thing another girl approached her and taught her how to make a fishtail loomband which she finished herself.

Photo 10-12-14, 4 24 53 PMEverything was okay until night came. I woke up from a siesta at around 5:30PM and cooked pancit canton for me and the little girl for merienda. We had it with bread and coke. Around 7PM, my stomach started to ache. I though it was just the usual kabag pain I always had before. The pain got worse at around 9PM. No matter how much I changed position, the pain was not being relieved. I was finding it hard to breathe. Around 10:30PM, I was getting dizzy, my hands were shaking, and I was perspiring cold sweat. The husband decided to take me to the hospital. Good thing there was a new hospital just outside the subdivision. After a few minutes of interview, the nurse administered meds into my veins which took about 20 minutes to take effect. The pain started to go away. At 12MN, we were already out of the hospital.

The doctor said it was gastritis. In short, empacho. It was the first time I had it. The doctor also advised me to go through an ultrasound just to rule out gall stones since gastritis is an indication of gastritis. I went for an ultrasound this morning and thank God I was negative of gall stones.

Whew, what a way to cap off the weekend, right?

Well, that’s it for me. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. And let’s have a wonderful week ahead. Shall we?


See You Soon, Ed!

ed sheeranWeee!!!

I’m so excited for this.

My sisters and I are watching this. Despite having a hard time getting tickets due to conk-y SM Tickets site, we were able to buy.

Ssshh!!! My husband doesn’t know yet I’m watching and how much my ticket was. Hihi. 😉

On Begin Again and Garlic Pasta

I’m back! Waddup?

What have you been up to? How was your long weekend?

Me? Wait.

I had not feeling well since Saturday. What a great way to start the weekend, right? My body was aching. I felt like there was a lump in my throat and I was a having a hard time swallowing.

I was supposed to do the laundry but postponed that until Monday when I was feeling a little better.

I didn’t go to work yesterday and today due to cough. I think that explains the lump in my throat during the weekend.

What else?

I watched Begin Again the other night. I loved it! Have you watched it? If not, you should! I especially love the soundtrack which I downloaded right after I watched the movie. I love Mark Ruffalo. I think he’s a great actor. And of course, how can you not love Adam Levine? Right?

I cooked garlic pasta earlier. I’ve been wanting to cook it since I tasted Amici’s Aglio e Olio which reminds me I want to go back to Amici. I bought the ingredients 2 weekends ago but I only had the time to cook it today. I followed the video below on how to cook it. My husband and the little girl loved it or so they said to not hurt my feelings. 🙂

That’s all my kwento for now. Will try to be back tomorrow.

In the meantime, like my Facebook page and follow me on Instagram for instant updates.
