1 Father's Day

Today, we celebrate the Father's Day. Here in our flat, only two of us are already fathers. This weekend, one of them went back to Philippines to celebrate his son's baptism on Father's Day. So only me was celebrating here at the house. Happy Father's Day to all fathers.

0 BCG for my baby

Earlier today, my baby's pediatrician administered another vaccine to her. It's called BCG or Bacillus Calmette-Guérin vaccine. This is for preventing my baby from acquiring tuberculosis. Last June 13, the doctor also gave her the second shot vaccine against hepatitis-b.

That time, she was out of breath when she her skin was punctured and cried afterward. My heart was broken when I saw my baby cried like that. It was heartbreaking, really. I couldn't do anything but to pretend that it did not affect me at all.

Today, my wife told me that my baby didn't cry when she was given the BCG vaccine. But she cried when they wrapped her in a blanket and held them to prevent the baby from moving while she was being vaccinated.

133 Invitation Letter from Philippine Embassy

For those who want to go to Singapore, sometimes it is required by an immigration official to present an invitation letter from a relative or friend who is in Singapore. Last time, when I went here, I only have an invitation from my sister which was just a simple invitation letter with her name and IC number.

What I heard from my friends, right now they require an invitation letter signed by officials from the Philippine Embassy here in Singapore. This invitation letter should be applied personally in the embassy and has a fee($45?). My housemate went there last Wednesday and he was in for a surprise. The invitation letter will be processed for several days and you would only be able to get a copy after that time. Not recommended for those who procrastinate. If you have friends or relatives who plans to visit you, try to get an invitation letter as soon as possible.

3 Going back is hard

This time, it was the hardest. I had to free myself from selfishness and needed to overcome any force to stay. I needed to get back here to work to be able to give anything for my family. But, this time was the hardest. I was unable to sleep after arriving at the flat. I had to take MC to rest and regroup my thoughts. I have a broken heart, that can only be healed if I'm with my two angels. T_T

0 Celebration

Do you celebrate your birthday? What do you expect on your birthday, which comes every year on the same date?

Well, for one, it's your day. The same date your were born, several years ago. For me, it was 25 years ago.

One way or another, we celebrate our birthday. We post status messages, we eat out, we buy cake, we gather with friends and families, we drink.

But this year, I will celebrate differently. I will be spending my whole day with my baby girl. I know this will be the greated birthday of my life.

0 Live Free

You have the right to live freely. Choose any path to take. Live on the good side or the bad side. It's up to you. Your choices determine your future.

You can either choose to be happy and live for the day, or otherwise and live in the past.

But.. choose.

0 SimpleTips: When inside an airport

For those of you who are fond of traveling, one way or another you have spent a time in an airport. Included also here are our friends who tried to find work outside the country and those who have succeeded and returning back for the holidays. The gate going outside the country is most likely an airport, and same applies when visiting another country.

0 The Dynamic Uno

Have you heard about the Dynamic Uno? If you're watching How I Met Your Mother, then you'll know what I mean. It's from the Season 1, which Barney told Ted in a taxi on the way to the Liberty Bell.

We were watching this show every Monday on cable, but we started Season 5 until 6. So my housemate downloaded Season 1 through 5, and we are now watching from the start. It's funny. It's hilarious. You should watch it. If you want some relaxing TV show with tons of laughs, then go for this one.

0 Writing your goals.

And here I was, thinking I could change myself for the better. I really want to change. Change my lifestyle, my habits, my outlook in life. I want to change for the better. For the sake of my baby girl and my wife. And my family and friends.

I want to loose weight. I'm already over 80kg. I want to make my body fit and prevent getting any serious illness. I want to exercise. I want to run and finish a 5k marathon.

I want to write more, to post more useful and entertaining articles. I want to be know as a reputable source of information on the web. I want to be a giver, not just a blogger. I want to create more writings.

I want to be able to take awesome photographs. I want the viewers to see and feel as if they're on that moment when I captured it. I want to learn more.

I know, it's lame. But this is just a start. I will get my goals. In time, I will fulfill them all.

The first thing I want to do is to list down all those things in paper. It feels really different when you wrote it down on paper. It feels very different from typing it on notepad or any electronic way.

I will own it, and fulfill it. This is just the start.

How about you?

0 The worst blog post ever

Today is a good day for me. I received a comment from one of my not-so-good blog posts. Well.. At first look, it made me blush with anger. But when I read the blog post I made, it made me think that the commenter was right. Bull's eye! Dead on target. That blog post sucks big time. I'm trying really hard to make helpful and good posts, but there are good and bad days for me.

0 Motherhood 2011

Well this is embarrassing, but I thought otherwise. There is nothing wrong with being a father in a Motherhood sale. Earlier today, we went to this baby products sale in Singapore Expo. There were tons of good stuff to buy for my baby girl, but I was unable to buy that much. I went there to check how the prices are and thinking maybe I can get a baby carrier for her. Even though it's still early. And she's still not here. Maybe just a little bit further, I'll get one of those Maclarens.

0 The Singapore PC Show 2011

From June 9 to June 12, 2011, the PC Show 2011 will be held at Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre (Suntec City). Levels 1, 3, 4 and 6 will be used for the IT show. If you're planning to go there, be advised that you will be going there together with the thousands of people who are gadget-hungry and also those who want to see the electronic goods. So be prepared to muscle your way in to the booths and stalls.

But I will go there. :P

3 Hokkien Mee and French Open

So I ate stir-fried Hokkien mee this dinner. While watching the French Open. Which I don't like. Well, I have nothing to do. Might as well go with it.
