I had this sign for years… But I didn’t imagine my Edward would bite me this way. I’m kinda regretting putting up the sign. Haha.

To commemorate Edward’s first trip to Mall of Asia. We’ve decided to buy him toys.

The turtle, we’ve decided to call him Baby Mikey… named after his first turtle stuffed toy Mikey… He hold on to this for a long time. He even cried when we took it away from him. He won’t let go even if we told him that we would pay for it.

The Mickey Mouse is a variation of a toy capsule. Inside is an egg with a chocolate, inside the egg is a toy. For this, they have 10 variants. 9 out of 10 is good. Let’s see if we have the same luck as a real toy capsule.



One memorable event in the mall, when I suddenly stopped to talk with Kalvin. Edward said “hmmm” and was pointing to something. Turns out he discovered a Mickey Mouse shirt. It was cute but didn’t buy for him. Another cute item is the 3 Little Pigs Shirt. It’s still expensive, I’ll wait for a sale and get it for him.

Realization: I guess Edward really likes Mickey Mouse, he makes it a point to let us know he sees him.

Nan Two HW


Yesterday when I opened the freezer to discover than my milk supply is almost depleted, 4 bags left… I worried and at the same time was sad. Seems I won’t reach my 1 year goal. Three weeks left, and it’s almost my MTA. There’s still a chance… And I’ll push hard to reach it. Anyway, the doctor recommended Nan Three HA but it was already obsolete. The replacement is HW but we can’t find it. So we are settling for Nan Two. It’s for 6-12 months. I think it’s a bit expensive. I bought a small can 400 g at Php 482. Luckily, I persevered for a year. The savings… Even if I add the three pumps we’ve bought. It’s still cheaper. I don’t know how long would the 400 g last but mineral water cost would spike as well. Oh well, no more needless spending. Amazon, Etsy, Old Navy, Sears, Babies R Us, Macy, Aliexpress, DhGate, SNR… Get away from me. Oh there’s SM as well.

My son has the same fate as me when it comes to toy capsule luck. To commemorate his first mall (actual mall), we have decided to buy him something. On the way to Toys R Us RP branch, the line of toy capsules welcomed us. I immediately saw the Phineas and Ferb machine. Thinking 4 out of 5 is good… It’s a pretty good chance. We bought the 2 tokens at 60 Php each and tried our luck. We believed Edward would be lucky, we even had him twist the machine. But… He’s really my son… 4 out of 5 and we got the 1 that I don’t like. It’s Samurai X toy capsule all over again…
