Swept Away

I so love Christopher Cross. I love listening to his songs and my favorite of them all is Swept Away. It's such a sweet song and well it's my theme song for my hubby. LOL! Cheesy, much?

Anyways, I was one of the lucky winners of free concert tickets for Christopher Cross's concert here in Manila back to back with Workshy. I have been raving about Getzmo and I haven't been joining there contests these past few months but good thing I won this time.

It was just last night and til now I still can't forget the experience. There were a lot of people when Workshy opened the show but a lot more came in when Christopher started his performance. He's still got the same voice, it's just like listening to a CD. I loved his hits like Sailing, Arthur's Theme, Never be the same and when he did the acoustic versions of Think of Laura and Swept Away, the crowd were all cheering. Sigh. I wish I recorded it but good thing I found this vid of Swept Away in Youtube:

Swept Away

I never had anything happen so fast
I took one look and I shattered like glass
I guess I let it show 'cause your smile told me you knew
That you're everything I ever wanted at once
There's no holding this heart when it knows what it wants
And I never wanted anything more than to know you

I was swept away
No one in the world but you and I
Gotta find a way to make you feel the way that I do
I was swept away
Without a warning
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away

And so it begins
This journey of love
The summer wind carries us to places all our own
The words of a look
The language of touch
The way that you want me means so much
And I never wanted anything more than to love you

Seeing my tomorrows in your eyes
I was swept away

I hope I wake up soon
I'm a victim of that crazy moon

The very first time you said my name
I knew it would never sound the same
Something about me is changed forever

I could listen to this song over and over again and never get tired of it :)

Thanks again Getzmo for the tickets! Hope to win more in the future!

Barney overload

I posted last week that I bought tickets to the Barney Dino-Mite Birthday Show at SM North. We watched it last Saturday and what can I say, my Pinchy definitely had a blast!

The show ran for about 45mins and it started promptly at 6pm. There were only a few of us who watched on that schedule and there were a looot of empty seats but still voices of kids singing along with Barney filled the theater. When Barney first came out, my son was starstrucked! LOL! He wasn't blinking and maybe he was thinking if that was really the same Barney he watches everyday :)

He wasn't moving but when Barney and friends sang If you're happy, which happens to be his favorite song, he broke into a wide grin and started clapping! It was really great to see him happy and the other kids were all happy too. It's a good thing Barney sang all of his faves so he was up on his feet.

It was my first time to watch a Barney show and I can say that it's worth its ticket price. I was just kind of expecting that the set will be elaborate as well just like in the videos but maybe it was too much :D

I hope Barney comes back for another show in the future and when that time comes, I hope my youngest child will be old enough to appreciate it so that I can bring s/he along with Pinchy :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Wow, it's been 10 days since I last posted an entry. I've a lot of stories but just wasn't in the mood to right LOL

Anyways, I'd like to greet our friends in the US who are celebrating Thanksgiving Day today :) Have a good one to everyone out there!

We don't celebrate it here in the Philippines but I'm thinking of preparing a special dinner for later to kind of celebrate too. After all, there are a lot of things to be thankful for :)

I hope everyone's doing great. Talk to you later!

I like to move it, move it

I'm almost on my 21st week of pregnancy and like what I read in, I should be feeling the soft movements of my baby inside. I have been feeling it actually since last week and it's a very nice feeling. I hope s/he's healthy and I can't wait for my ultrasound on December and hopefully everything turns out fine and we get to know baby's gender too. Also, I hope my placenta moves up as I have been giagnosed with low-lying grade 1 placenta.

I'm sure everything will turn out fine. I'll just go back to lying down, prop my feet up the wall and wait for my baby to move again :)

Good night everyone!

I love you, Barney!

Pinchy loves anything Barney. He watches the videos day in and out. Whenever I sing the I love you song to him, he sways and smiles sweetly at me. And when I finish, he pinches my throat LOL That means I have to sing again. I even recorded it on my phone so that I can just play it to him over and over and over :D

Whenever he's crying or having a tantrum, we just play the video and he stops, just like that. He really loves Barney so it's just fitting that we treat him to the Barney Dino-mite Live On Stage show this Nov. 22 at the SM North Edsa. The tickets are pricey but we just bought the premiere ones at P590 each. I bought 3 in all so that Dadi, Pinchy and I can watch :)


I'm super dee duper excited! I heard it's just going to be a short show but still I'm sure Pinchy would love it and it will be a wonderful experience for him.

To those who will watch too, let's all enjoy!

My Baby Penguin

Last Oct. 31, we headed to our Training Center in Pasig City for the annual Trick or Treat Halloween party. We got there late so I saw some colleagues along with their kids.

It was Jeremy's first time for such fun activity and we even bought him a Penguin costume but then he didn't want to wear it LOL

He's really uneasy when we arrive at an unfamiliar place to him and he cries when people greet him. There is a technique though: just let him wander around, get to know the place and the faces he's seeing and after a few minutes, he'll be smiling :) He just doesn't want to be rushed because he's still warming up and wants to take his sweet time.

Anyways, we were not able to snap a good pic of him at the party because he was fidgeting with the costume. And in 10mins or less, he already puked on it LOL He was eating lasagna and trying to play at the same time so there :D

Good thing we had our dress rehearsal at home so here's one decent pic:

My baby penguin

He's such a cutie. Sorry, just a proud Momma here :)

Maybe next year he'll be more mature so he gets to wear this again LOL

Have a great day!

Jeremy's Birthday

My eldest child, Jeremy, will be celebrating his 11th birthday on December 20 and he already has plans for the day. It will just be a simple...
