From CDeO and Bali with Love ;)

How are you  blogging world? It feels like a long time since I last wrote on my blog. Well Hello World! I'm still here :)

As you may know last weekend, me and my siblings traverse the seas just to get to the city of golden friendship, CDeO! yaaahoooo!! :) The main reason why we were there was to join the celebration of my bff's younger sissy Neccah on her 18th birthday :) The months of preparation has now come and my lil sis from another mommy is now of legal age :) Since we are invited, we gracefully went there against all odds. *smirkface*

9.13.13 wohooo I just realized its Friday the 13th. Hmmm??? could that brought any bad luck?? i hope not! 

#ImSoExcited and i just can't hide it! hahaha that expression on my face! hahaha That picture was taken prior to boarding.

*It was TransAsia9 that took us to CDeO. Us inside the vessel with  my sister Karly =)

With my Brother Monch and Vani below :)

9.14.13 welcome to CDeO biatches! hahaha 

Upon arrival in the city we went straight to Neccah's place to drop our things and meet up Dimple afterwards. Dimple is from Bali too and the brains behind the main event (Neccah's party). Now Vani and Dimple are really close friends, matter of fact Vani used to be a part of the original team of Blissful Concepts, hence, that closeness lead to the demand for breakfast. hahaha Lucky us referring to myself and my siblings, we were able to avail of that free breakfast too. hahaha That's what you call CONNECTIONS... connections that everyone doesn't have. hahaha

Right after breakfast, we change clothes, took a bath, freshen up and went straight to Centrio, the latest mall in town. We have to buy gift for Neccah and might as well tour around for its Monch and Karly's first time in there.

When it rains it really pours! On that day itself was the birthday party of Dimple's nephew and niece too. So you know what it means then? you are right! Laffangan festival it is! yay!! :)))) As Dimple has a class to attend at 9-11 and she'll be going to Bali after her class, we decided to just ride with her to Bali :)

Leni  on the other hand arrived a day ahead of us so she was already in Bali when we arrived there.  At around 3PM we went to Dimple's place for the kids party.

*Leni, Me, Dimple and Vani in their hacienda :)

*with Pare Jan below. He is the better half of Dimple and at the same time batch mate and barkada of Leni and Vani :)

*there you go! the Party place.Its a Minion theme party! oh how I love those minions! sooo cutie :)

*That's the celebrants below with their parents :)

*and that's Dimple's family on the next picture.

*of course the party favors - the cake and cupcakes! These are hand made by the celebrants' mom Che2x :) It really looks good and soooo yummy! 

*the child in me with all these minions! :)

*and Vani became the instant host of the party :)

Right after the party, we went back to Leni's house to take some rest.  An unexpected call surprised us all, it was Teddy calling.. awww! sweet! choz! naaah he called to inform us that we can take our dinner in there place at the seaside. Eventhough he's not there as he was in Davao at time, he already instructed their helpers to prepare dinner for us. Ayyy Teddy ikaw na ang best in Hospitality! Thank you :)

*Seafood at the Seaside :)

*in Gratitude to the hospitality here's a big smile from all of us :)

At that moment in time, who would have thought will come in?? To our pleasant surprise the "tonton Go and friends" were there. hahaha Since its past 10 already and there's no food anymore, what we did was share our food with them. :) 

*that's the loveteam in Bali below.hahaha my sissy and keke :)

*thanks again to the mahal na bertud teddy for the drinks. hahaha

And to end the night here's our parting ways group picture :)

As we are on our drinking session, our younger counter part had taken pictures of Bali at night :) so Surreal! :)

Good night Bali! The next day is another day :)


This is the day of Neccah's  birthday party. I will be posting a separate story for that as it's the main event :)

Anyways, prior to the event, I made sure to spend time with my favorite godson Thurdeeeyy! :) We chose to met up in JCo as my sister and brother haven't been there yet. As you may see from my previous post, there donuts are the best tasting donuts ever.

*look how lovely our lil boy is. That's him with her tita Karly :)

*my sister and bubbles below> Bubbles is Leni's first cousin

*and that's us with Third's mom MJ :)

This is the exactly the day of Neccah's birthday :) We're all damn tired from last night's party but we're still able to manage to wake up earlier just to be in Bali for lunch. Mom prepared food for us and some guests :)

It was so hot on that day so we decided to take a bath at the cold spring :)

*below is my siblings, neccah and ayyer (neccah's roommate in CDO)

After that refreshing bath, we went straight to Bali baywalk to see the sunset. :)

For first timers like Karly and Ayyer, it is a must have to take pictures in the People's palace :)

With St. Rita School too :)

and with the church as well! :)

Of course a picture in the park must not be forgotten :)

and of course a picture of my favorite spot in Bali concludes our vacay. This part of the town is the most memorable for me. :) 

That's it folks. My 3 days vacay in the South :) 

Hope you enjoy the way I do. :)

It's all about ThirD! :) #proudNinang #AsThirdGrows

Kids and babies are really adorable. They have this charm that's simply irresistible, more so if you feel the affection reciprocated equally from them. Speaking of babies, I have a godson who's super duper cute, good looking and very adorable. Actually words are not enough to describe him, he's an Angel sent from above, matter of fact I have completely fallen in love with him. And at this moment in time I am currently missing him that's why I am writing on my blog.

He is Thaddeus III or Thirdy for short, he's the son of a good friend of mine from Balingansag and the brother of Teddy. He was born on March 25, 2012 to father Thaddeus Lllagas Jr and mother Mary Jane Inesin. Actually I was in CDO at that time and it was our first meet up with his Tito Biboy but me and his dad or mom were not yet friends then. hehehe Good thing I was back in Bali for the holy week otherwise I won't be able to meet his dad and I won't get the chance to be Thirdy's godmother :)

Look how cute our lil one :) Ohhhh those eyes and features really tempts me to have my own. In time! In God's perfect time :)

*That's 3rd at 6 months old :)

*Tita ninang's lipstick on babylove's chubby checks :)

*And Third loves her Titang Ninang eversince :)

Just this year, March 25, 2013 to be exact, he celebrated his first birthday and without any hesitation I flew to CDO just to see my favorite godson and celebrate with him  :)

*See how close we are? hehehe Third has lost weight because of his growing dentals.

*Even when he cries, he's still cute :))

*Third with his gorgeous Titang Ninangs Leni, me and Vani! He loves our gift :)

Four months after his birthday we're very glad that Thadz, MJ and Third paid a visit in Cebu. Yey! we'll see our lil one again and we'll be able to bond more :)

Since its only them coming over here in Cebu, I personally volunteered myself to watch over Third as MJ and Thadz go on with their activities in their Itinerary :)

This is how he looks  now :) Gwapo as always :)

While MJ and Thadz are on go Kart, me is the yaya for a day! But I'm loving it! I would even be glad to have him with me all the time hehehe

Afterwards, we went straight to Krispy Kreme IT Park to rest and munch on their donuts :D MJ and Thadz has to freshen up as well so I have to keep an eye on Third. Perfect timing as we have to wait for others for the Birthday Dinner of Third's mom.

*that's Tito Vani, me and Third. Look at those doe-eyes of our lil one. hehehe But seriously he must be very tired already. True enough he has fallen asleep on my arms. Awww what a feeling =)

*Our baby sleeping soundly and so Cutie :)

After an hour or two, MJ and Thadz have freshen up and the others have arrived too. Since its MJ's birthday (Third's mom), they treated us all for dinner! Yeeppheeyyy!! #happytummy We decided to dine in at the Pink House for a more formal touch, unfortunately it was Friday night and it's fully booked so we have to look for another place. My brother suggested that we try Surfin' Ribs in Ayala as they are new and they're getting positive feedback. In all fairness the food is very good and very affordable. :) #NoRegrets

*with the Bali pepz, Vani, Thadz, Leni, Cokin and Orly. Groupie first before eating :D

*Wacky pose then pag may chance! hahaha

*This is the complete casting! Mindanao invades Visayas! hahaha

*Even Third loves their Baby Back Ribs hahaha

*the face of a satisfied customer! hahaha

Right after dinner we headed straight to Crown Regency for MJ and Thadz will be trying the sky adventure.

*Third with his mom and dad :)

*Third with his 3 lovely girls. #wlayMuPalag

*That's us at the entrance of Sky Adventure :) Yey! Third is still wide awake @11 PM  :)

Since its MJ's bday we prepared for a lil suprise :)

*Posporo sa lng ang candle coz we can't find any at that time. hahaha #improvised #brilliantIdea

*Yey! I guess, our kumare was happy with the surprise :)

Haaayy time flies fast, our lil Third growing fast and we getting old, nonetheless,we, his ninangs, will always be fond of him.

To our Thirdy, hope that by the time you learn to read you'll pay time to read this blog i've written for you. Bear in mind that I will always be here for you baby and I will always love you. Please grow up as a person with character and with a good heart. Love you Third! see you again the soonest.  uhhmm next week hopefully! hehehe

PS: Thanks for the kiss baby. Ninang loves it very much!

love, peace and happiness,
