Life Changes

by - 2:05 PM

Life has started to change when I got pregnant.


We can`t have long drives anymore, especially now Im on my trimester. I easily get tired kaya near places na lang.

I can no longer have loooong leisure walk =( I miss shopping, real shopping. Shopping here in tokyo would take a day to find what you really want and get home contented. Once you get to tachikawa station (nearest station from my place ) there are lots of shopping malls. I see to it that I go to these 5-8 malls in a day, sometimes a day is not enough =) . You just can`t just stop at one store and purchase right away. Lots of nice stores kasi, you can`t really choose talaga. You might find more amusing in the next mall, its hard to feel sorry later.... You can always have a cup of starbucks latte, or a cone of ice cream in Coldstone, etc, to rest for awhile.
As they say, walking is an excellent form of exercise since it increases circulation, assists in reducing resting heart rate and increases functions in your daily workday, while all along burning calories. Shopping is absolutely a very good form of walking, a LEISURE WALK.

I just can`t eat junk foods, aLthough sometimes (rare occassions) nakakalusot, but when i think about the baby, taste na lang =( You must have a great sense of self-control. I miss nachos with cheese dip, coke, popcorns, custard cake, country mams, sneakers, meiji, donuts, etc.

Our house is not as organized as before. Here, you do all the chores all by yourself. I hate clutters. I tend to have obssessive compulsive tendencies that is why I always clean the house, every corners. But for now, it just looks clean where it`s not really . Our entertainment room is such a mess.

Im always hungry.
No more goodtimes, alcohol, etc.


Healthy lifestyle. I eat healthy foods like fruits, veggies, fish & meat... although sometimes I can`t resist instant kasi sarap ng spam, pancit canton, ham and sausage =) balanced diet lang talaga, pero mahirap.

My creativeness has improved. Scrapbook for my baby is the one keeping me busy aside from the internet.
I got matured
Nakaka-relate na sa mga friends and relatives ko na may mga kids.
Clean and serious living. Di na kagaya nung single, anytime, anywhere, gudtime.

I got closer to my neighbors and mom`s inlaws. Oldies na kasi mga neighbors ko. neighbor ko din mga inlaws ni mommy. They are all excited for me kasi they don`t have granddaughters, my mom`s inlaws puro lalaki, yung sa harap and side namin, wala pa apo. During my first 5 months,

--they (okasan and tani ai obasan ) always give me japanese healthy foods =)--Ginawan pa ko ng 3 preggy clothes ni tani ai obasan (hobby nya kasi manahi)
--Pinagshopping ako ni Antie Hisayo ng mga preggy underwears
--Nilabas ni okasan from her baul mga mamahalin nyang obi, baby clothes na sana
for her apo na akala nya girl pero boy pala kaya tinago na lang, and gave it to me =) --Ginawan nya ko ng ----ganchilyo ba yun, im not sure what u call it--- basta
handmade pink-yellow combi na blanket para pag winter for my baby... time and
love daw binuhos nya dun sa ganchilyo. Touching =)
--binibigyan ako pera ng mom ni hide everytime she visits us. She also gave me
pocket money when I went to Philippines.

okasan ---> my mom`s mother inlaw

tani ai obasan (lola tani ai)
-----> neighbor sa harap ng house namin
Antie Hisayo -----> my mom`s sister in law

I appreciate my parents more, especially my mom. Totoo pala to, ull never know how hard it is to be a parent once you have your own child. Baka mas lalo ma-appreciate ko sila when the baby gets out of my womb na...

I get special treatment anywhere... Buti pa dito, anywhere basta maternity, special treatment. Sa atin wala paki hehe..

Excuse of being lazy. Although I see to it na I cook breakfast, lunch and dinner, laundry every thurs.

Demanding... Since ala ang aking sisi, i always make utos to my honey... paki-kuha yun, paki-abot ito, paki-push ako pataas (stairs) , paki-bili nito, paki-massage naman, paki-kamot etc.

My cooking has improved. My dry adobo is tastier. I can cook chicken afritada, bistek, torta, pinakbet, tinola, chopseuy, pansit bihon, fried chicken ala max, tonkatsu, croquette, and of course yung mga easy fry lang. The greatest is I finally got my dad`s famous CALDERETA.

We rarely eat outside na kasi. Syempre its different na. We have to save. Kakapanghinayang na yung gumastos like eating outside in an ordinary day where you can have nice dinner at home. Of course we treat ourselves naman at least 3-4 times a month, basta 4th and 11th day of the month special day yun.


Oh yeah, we had his pre-birthday party a night before his bday. Simple dinner party na kami-kami lang... my mom, brother, cousin, cousin`s hubby, and my nephew. Di ko na ininvite mga japanese kasi philippine food ang menu. I prepared all by myself. I cook dry adobo, pansit bihon, grill liempo, grill sausage and caldereta. First time ko talaga mag-prepare ng ganun karami. Here is really different. Very tiring talaga maghanda ng party.

I miss my loveones in Philippines. Iba kasi ang party dun, dami peeps, super ingay. BUt we enjoyed naman kahit kami kami lang =)

THAT`S ALL FOR NOW.. More nxt time
