Getting Married

Let me start this blog by sharing something about one of the special days of my life – My wedding day. I just turned 25 years old when I officially got married...

Pizza Mania

In the office, we always crave for pizza. Sometimes we treat ourselves with pizza after receiving our salary or we wait for our boss's pizza treat..

Exploring Baguio City

Baguio City is one of the tourists' favorite places in the Philippines because of the cold weather, popular tourist spots and friendly people...

More Baby Stuff - Hello Baby Store

The thought of going out for a baby shopping makes me feel energized. Hubby and I went to Hello Baby Store at #48 Zodiac Street Bel-air 3, Makati...

Baptism Preparation Update

Planning for Aika's Baptism is not as easy as a snap of my finger :) But this could have been quick if only hubby and I have enough time to do the preparations together. With less than 20 days before Aikas Baptism Ceremony, I think we have done 50% so far. Here are the updates:

Church: Done (Shrine of Jesus, The Way The Truth and The Life )

Reception: Done, paid 50% (Shakeys, Blue Wave)

Invitations: Half done. I sent the link of her invitation thru email and facebook. Other guests who dont have access online will be given print copy and that we haven't done yet

Aika's Outfit: White dress and shoes for the ceremony - haven't bought yet
               Dress and shoes for reception - Done
               Other accessories - still looking/waiting

Contacting Sponsors/Guests: Done. Others have not confirmed yet, while the others can't come :(

Giveaways: Still searching for ideas

Tarpaulin: Done

Cake: Paid already

Balloons: Done with ideas and arrangements. Will have to buy more.

Van: Still on canvass

Need to buy home stuff for my visitors, and make itinerary for family's vacation as well. I'm so looking forward to this day not only because of Aika's baptism but also because my family is coming and yes, they're complete :)

Modern Cloth Diaper

Zebra Print Alva Pocket Diaper
(Bamboo Insert)

I learned about modern cloth nappies when Aika was 3 weeks old already and I started loving it. Lots of mommies have gone crazy and addicted for cloth diapers. If you think it's pricey, yes you're right but eventually it will leave you with great savings rather than using the disposables. Most modern cloth diapers have One-size-fits-all which has adjustable size so your baby can wear it from newborn until they grow older. Immagine how much money you'll save from buying disposables and how many wastes you'll spare from throwing dirty disposables away. Thus, by using cloth nappies, we can help save mother earth!

Thirsties Diaper Cover
(lampin inside)
There are many variaties, types and styles of modern cloth diapers. With diaper covers, you can still use the traditional lampin if you want without worrying about leaks. I like using diaper covers with lampin to make use all the lampins that I brought when I was still pregnant.

I will share you some links with articles about cloth diapers to clear things up if you still have no idea or in doubt about it:

(found these articles from google).
Benefits of Using Cloth Diapers
Advantages Of Cloth Diapers And Tips For Picking The Right Ones

I bought few pockets diapers and diaper covers so Aika can give it a try. Of course I go for One-Size-Fits-All for practical reason so Aika can wear them for a long time. It works for my baby with no problem at all. Pockets with inserts, Covers/Shells with lampin - all do good. We still use disposables at night, but I'm trying to collect more to add to my stash so Aika can proudly wear cloth diapers all day and all night.

Baby Aikai's Baptism Invitation

 Baby Aikai's Baptism Invitation

We kindly request all the sponsors to be punctual because the church is very strict about time as they consider other baptism schedules. The door will be closed once the ceremony starts.

The baptism ceremony would only last 15 minutes and another 15 minutes for picture taking. Lunch will immediately follow at Shakeys Blue Wave. See you all!

Some guests have requested for a wishlist so they would not end up buying gifts not needed by the little girl. So I made a list of stuff to look at. Click here! But please be reminded that this is not a requirement/compulsory :) What's important is your presence for this special event.
