Day 7 at Singapore

Happy 29th Monthsary to Rhalph and I! 🙂 Was supposed to celebrate it today at Universal Studios Singapore but I was still woozy from being drenched in water the whole day yesterday. I still have this feeling of being in the wave pool. Too much time spent there. Haha.

Anyway, here are some random pics for the day.

Happy Valentine’s Day to our dogs! 🙂

Saw this cute dog toy at Daiso and couldn’t resist buying it since it’s only S$2. It’s a pink bone and heart that squeaks when you press it. Planning to give this to Tikiwiki and her puppy when I get back. 🙂 It’s my pasalubong for them.

Bought a lot of stuff from Daiso from my previous trips. And I am just so sad because of the 3-4 branches that we visited here in Singapore, the Charcoal Face Mask is out of stock. 😦 I was planning to buy 10 bottles since it would save me around 22 pesos per bottle if I buy them here. Huhu! Oh well. Will try to find them in the Philippines when I get back.

Okay, then this one is a picture of their generic ibuprofen. I always take 400 mg of ibuprofen for my migraine… and last night, I had this severe migraine. It hurt so bad I had to hide under the blanket since I was too sensitive to light and noise. Gladly, there’s a nearby pharmacy where Rhalph was able to buy 1 box of ibuprofen.

Nurofen(R) 200 mg caplets

It’s S$3.20 for a box of 12. So converted to pesos, it’s like almost 9 pesos per caplet. Medicines are quite expensive here compared to the Philippines. But I am just so happy it worked well and I was able to sleep soundly for 12 hours. Haha! 🙂

We’ll be watching Safe Haven at City Square Mall later. Will update this post too. 🙂 Ta ta for now!

Birthday and Christmas 2012 Wishlist

December is just a few months away. Wee! 🙂 It’s totally my favorite month. And… since I’ve been a good girl turning 25 this year, Santa, here’s my wishlist. 🙂

1. Own Domain and Webhosting

I’ve hosted my blog on several sites… and when those sites close down, I need  to transfer all my posts and repost them ALL OVER AGAIN. Such a tiring task to do. So I want my own domain so I’ll have my own space on the web forever. 🙂

2. Belle de Jour Power Planner 2013

I’ve been using Belle de Jour Power Planner since they started. It helps me take note of things that happen everyday and I also use it to track events, meetings, activities, parties, etc so I won’t miss those important events in my life. It also has these really cool coupons from places I love e.g. Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Ace Water Spa, and more. It’s really the best planner EVER invented especially for a corporate girl. Yes, I’m proud to be a BDJ girl. 🙂

3. Samsung Galaxy S3 in Garnet Red

The perfect phone for a busy girl like me. Plus, my boyfriend and I will be having the same phone. 🙂 And I still believe it’s better than Apple’s iPhone 5.

4. The NEW iPod Touch in Pink

Best partner for the S3. When it comes to apps, Apple still has the best. With this, I’ll be able to play my favorite Tap Tap Games and of course, be able to use their smart and cool apps. Comes in a variety of colors too.

5. Scrapbooking Materials

So I can start working on creating my scrapbook. Time to get into arts & crafts mode. 🙂

6. Bookshelf

I’ve been cramming 450 books in just 1 bookshelf. So, I’d love to have another one probably 4 ft wide with 6 1-ft tall layers. 🙂

7. Any Hello Kitty stuff

I love everything Hello Kitty. 🙂

8. Lunch or Dinner Buffet at Spiral Sofitel

Rated as one of the best buffets in Manila, I just simply want to try it out. 🙂 Or back to Buffet 101 at SM Mall of Asia. 🙂

9. My own music video on YouTube

Just something FUN to do. Haha!

10. 1,000 likes on Anthea, 500 followers on Twitter

Numbers matter.

11. Start 2013 with a decent amount of money in the bank

I want to fully receive all accounts receivable and clear all my accounts payable so I’ll be off to a good start next year.

12. Professional makeup brushes and makeup train case

A professional cosmetics case has been on my list for years. Was able to find the perfect one, but then, I didn’t have the means to buy it yet. I need one to hold all my makeup in just one place. 🙂 I’d love to have it in pink or red, and of course, the bigger the better. 🙂 As for the brushes, that can wait. 🙂

13. A year’s supply of Daiso Charcoal Face Mask

So addicted to this because it really works. Keeps my face so smooth and clear. 🙂 A bottle can go from 6-7 uses and it costs P85 here in the Philippines.

Had my hair cut short on August 2, Sunday. I felt so much lighter! 🙂 I had it done at Freshaire at SM Mall of Asia for P200. Am not quite satisfied with their service. Parang minamadali kasi nila yung service. Tapos diretso cut then blowdry after lang. Pero pwede na rin. I really like Bench FIX Salon better. Sadly, there’s no Bench FIX at SM Mall of Asia. 😦

And then on our way to SM Mall of Asia, we saw some Hello Kitty geek frame glasses. Being a big fan of Hello Kitty, I immediately bought a pair. I wish I could wear this to work. Haha! 🙂

Tikiwiki Gave Birth to 6 Cute Pups!

Tikiwiki, our dachshund, gave birth to her second litter on July 14, 2012. At around 9am, Tiki gave birth to 2 puppies but the other one died. I was still in Bacolod that time. I got home past 6pm and she was still in labor. It was already 7pm and I got really alarmed. The puppies might not survive and Tiki is just very weak already. 😦

The box was actually for the puppy but Tikiwiki wanted to be in it. She’s being cute even though she’s already in pain. Anyway, we decided to bring her to our neighborhood vet, BaiVet Bailon Veterinary Clinic, owned by Dr. Gino Bailon.

We learned upon ultrasound that there are 4-5 more puppies inside her. She’s too weak to push the babies out herself. So as not to prolong the agony and considering the safety of Tiki and the puppies inside her, we agreed to do a cesarean delivery. She was on dextrose and she was also injected with an anesthetic and analgesic. She was sedated and tied to the operating table. My sister and I were able to see the whole operation. I was so happy whenever I see the cute puppies being taken out of her. They were just so big, it will really be hard for Tiki to deliver them herself.

All in all, there were 5 more puppies that came out. So now we have a total of 6 cute, live, and healthy puppies. 🙂

It takes a little more effort to take care of Tikiwiki and her puppies… but it is sooo worth it. 🙂 The puppies are just so cute and adorable. I hope they all grow to be strong and healthy, sweet and kind, and most of all, may they grow to be the ultimate best friends to their new owners. 🙂

Sweet Sister

My sister borrows my laptop sometimes to do some school work. And when I was about to leave for a provincial trip, she left me this message on my desktop:

I Love You Ate Moe!

Awww… Thanks Trisha! 🙂
