Long kwento!
It's been a week since my last post. Bad blogger noh?! Anyways, I've been very busy since last week pa! Counting the days... whew! Ang bilis ng panahon! Parang gusto kong ibalik ang panahon and parang we still need time pa. Considering last year pa kami nag-prepare huh?! Iba pala ang feeling pag ganon. Parang gusto mong ikasal na parang wag pa muna because you think na parang ang dami mo pa rin kulang. Hay! =)
Last Saturday, Rain & I went to Wellmansons (Quiapo) to buy the remaining accesories or supplies for our souvenirs. We've been there for quite sometime. Halos na-memorize na namin ang place. Expert na noh?! Nah... hindi pa din. Now, we're done with the guest souvenirs. Just waiting for the 65 pcs pouches done by my future MIL.

Sunday - Before hearing mass Rain & I went to meet Monsignor Antero Sarmiento to ask for his license number and expiration. SSA needs that info 'coz we'll be bringing our priest (hindi kase kami parishioner e). We're still waiting for his approval on our missalette. Can't wait. Kung pede nga lang kulitin ginawa ko na e. Para matapos na! =p While hearing mass, I just realize that its 5 more sundays to go before our wedding. Rain was surprised as well because time really flies so fast kahit na sobrang tagal na namin nag-prepare, still dami pa din kulang!
After the mass we're suppose to watch a movie, kaya lang we have to wake up early the next day because I have an annual free medical check-up from Philamlife and Rain of course have to come to work. I was suppose to have the annual after my birthday. Its just a birthday treat from Philam for their VIP customers. Dapat lang noh?! I've been spending money on my pension kaya dapat lang nila ako i-treat. Hahaha! Since Rain have work, nagpasama na lang ako sa mom ko for the check-up. I don't need to eat anything at least 8 hours before the check-up. Around 8am nandun na kami sa UN Ave. (Philam Bldg.). It's really VIP 'coz you don't have to wait a long line for it. 9am yata tapos na ako. The good thing about it is I have a breakfast buffet treat at Manila Pavillion's SEASONS. The food was great! Wala akong masabi. All types of cuisine meron. May american, chinese, filipino etc. Since I'm the only entitled for the buffet treat, treat ko na mom ko...hehehe! But she decided not to go with the buffet. Hindi nya daw kaya! I think it's worth 800++ per pax e. E medyo diet na siya baka hindi magkasya gown nya. hehehe!

The pseudo Eastern and Western cuisine melting pot of Manila. This modern café-resto offers a taste of everything! Indulge on a spread of international dishes in this new restaurant of “interactive” nature. Enjoy a one-of-a-kind dining experience refined by a unique seasons inspired interiors

While having our breakfast, my insurance company texted me that my car is ready for pick-up! Yey! =p I was suppose to get pa by Tuesday. Buti nalang at ok na! So, what I dis after breakfast I went home muna then after lunch I went to Toyota Manila Bay. While checking the car, I saw na parang hindi lapat ang bumber sa headlight. So, they have to re-install it all over again kaya I waited for an hour again. My mom went to accompany me since Rain was not with me (may pasok kase e). Masyado lang siguro akong meticulous. And then, the fog lamp daw hindi napalitan since they have to order it from Japan pa. And it will take 30-45 days daw bago dumating. Kaya once dumating na, they'll inform me asap para makabit na agad. Actually, parang wala naman sira ung fog light (left side). Umiilaw pa nga e! Pero bayad na kaya wala na silang magagawa! hehehe! Actually, hindi naman talaga halata. Now naman since meron na ule akong car, parang mas gusto ko ng mag-commute. Aside from tipid, hindi pa ako mapapagod mag-drive with all the traffic. I just have 3 ride from the office (MRT, jeep from buendia and tricycle). Hirapan lang ako minsan kase mahihiluhin ako and sobrang takot sa araw. I don't know why! hehehe! Bad trip nga lang since tapos na ang DST (Daylight Saving Time) sa US, affected na rin ang pasok namin. From 12midnight to 1am. And ends from 9am to 10am na! Whew! Ang init na nun. Parang ayaw ko na mag-commute! Wag nalang! =p
Wednesday - We went to Manila Memorial Park (Pque) to visit my Dad, Lolo & Lola. Ang traffic! What else can I say? We're suppose to go there on the 31st but my supervisor won't allow me. Kaya nov 1 nalang! Sobrang init grabe! Buti nalang I was able to change my shirt that day, because my sister had sun-burn. Grabe! Buti nalang. Worried ako sa gown ko! Baka magkaroon ng tan-line (hindi from the beach). Sobrang init talaga! We stayed there for 3 hours lang dahil sa sobrang init.
We went straight to Las Pinas for our cousins and our ninong and ninang. Buti nalang at we're able to leave early that day because sobrang lakas ng ulan. May kasama pa naman kaming baby. I wasn't able to come to work that night sa sobrang puyat. Hello? Obvious ba?! We got home around 8pm. And sobrang antok na antok ako na halos nakatulog na ako agad. What a day! Sobrang stress na stress ako that day!
Side kwento: While we were discussing our wedding, my cousin ask me if I have 3 cam set up on our wedding day. He's also into production kase. Sabi namin 2 cam lang. He just said sayang naman daw. Mas maganda if we have that daw both church and reception. Sabi lang namin wala ng budget. When we check his rates, wow! Prang nalula kami sa mahal... wag nalang.. nag-iilusyon lang kami. hahaha! But before we left, he told us pag-usapan daw namin. Sana nga libre nalang! hehehe! His 2 daughters (twins) were also our flowergirls. Sobrnag excited na ang dalawa. They're asking me kung meron ba daw practice... hahaha! =p The girls look really pretty! Can't wait to see them wear their gowns!

wala lang! stolen shot from the alabang town center parking! =p

Friday - After work, I went straight to Holy Family (my parish) to pick-up the wedding banns. Grrr... Kakainis. Hindi pa raw ready! E she told me the last time by friday (nov 3) pede na makuha. Hindi pa daw napirmahan. Grabe! Sa inis ko I told her na.. "You told me Nov 3, e ipa-pass na namin yan sa SSA tom." Buti naman at very apologetic siya. I got to ask her again kung how much, wla talaga kaming lusot, tinanong ule niya na sa ... "Santuario diba?", P500. Hay! Kala ko mamamali hehehe!

Tomorrow, We have a lot of itenerary! I don't know kung matapos namin lahat!

1. Go to my dentist for adjustments. By december daw, she'll remove my braces na yey!

2. Go to Mimi's office to pick-up the cd for our prenup. Excited! =p

3. Go to SSA to pass the wedding banns (sana lang makuha namin tom ung banns from my church).

4. Go to Zandra for final fitting of my entourage. Hindi pa rin makakasama ung iba dahil sa work and different schedules! =p

5. Go to Craftmaster to pick-up our invites. Finally! =p Excited! Next week na ang distribution with the sponsors and the whole entourage! =p Later on na ang guests!


Need to do:

1. Look for a honeymoon package! Definitely Rain doesn't want to stay here in the Phils. Ayaw nya daw ng beach. Out of the country nalang daw. We're eyeing on HK Disneyland. The last we went there kase wala pang Disneyland. I'm looking for a travel agency that fits our budget. Ayaw na namin ng meron mga tour pa. We know naman how to ride MTR e. Mas maganda siguro un para just in case maligaw kami keri lang! hehehe! Exciting! =p

2. Our officemates and some of my friends were asking if we have a bridal registry. Huh?! We decided not to get that since we'll be staying at my house hindi na kami kuha ng ganon. Hindi naman new ang house namin e. But still I don't know if we'll get one or not. Tanong ko muna si Rain if he wants it. Check namin Rustans. Actually, before pa tawag na ng tawag ang Rustans for that, wla lang akong interest. But I'm thinking, siguro para alam nila ang ireregalo nila sa amin huh?!

3. Need to buy bible & candles. (1 memorial, 2 for our moms, 2 for our ss, 2 for our unity).

4. Need to wrap all the gifts for our sponsors and entourage! Hindi ko pa din nagagawa though I already have all the materials. =p

5. Review the guest list and seat plan. Medyo magulo pa. Since naguluhan kami dahil ang dami ng nadagdag na guest. waaaahhh! =( Ang hirap ng maraming friends! hahaha!

Whew! Ang dami! Magawa ko kaya ito? Bahala na si batman! =p
