Tapos na 'kong mag-emote. I should be moving on.
So, ano bang latest? May 'nawalang' artista, di ko sya kilala pero nakakalungkot din kase ang bata pa nya. Sa isang corner naman ng blogosphere, merong nagkainitan ng ulo dahil sa pag-comment sa isang comment, good thing now is - bati na sila. Dito naman sa amin, eto at malapit nang umabot hanggang tuhod ko ang snow at sobrang lamig na, kahapon lang umabot ng -40 ang temp. Hindi na sya nakakatuwa! Walong araw na lang at Pasko na pero ni isa wala pa akong nabibiling regalo so I think kelangan ko nang mag-panic. Nakakatamad naman kase lumabas ng bahay pag ganitong uber sa lamig, unang-unang dahilan - ang dami mong kelangang isuot pag lalabas ka ng bahay to keep you warm and dry.
Eto ang layering (ko) ng damit pag winter:
1st layer (after ng undies syempre): tank top, yung tight fitting and wicking material
2nd layer: long sleeved thermal top
3rd layer: sweater or any long sleeved top na medyo mainit sa katawan (fleece or wool)
4th layer: wind/water resistant insulated jacket, preferably yung may hood
Bottoms: (bukod uli sa undies) thermal pants then snow pants.
Syempre hindi lang katawan ang kelangang coveran, importante din na warm ang iyong ulo, kamay at paa. So you need to wear a hat or tuque sabay suot ng hood ng iyong jacket. Pag matagal ka sa labas at sobrang baba ng temp, you also need to wear ear muffs at baka di mo napapansin nahulog na pala ang isang tenga mo. Kelangan mo ng insulated na gloves, kung sobrang ginaw meron pa 'kong thin gloves na pang-layer. Ako kase pag lumabas kamay ko ang unang nakakaramdam ng lamig. Sa paa naman kelangan pa may sock liner then socks tapos saka mo isusuot ang iyong winter boots. Bukod sa mga yan, magsusuot ka pa ng scarf or neck warmer.
So ayun, pag suot mo na ang lahat ng yan mukha ka ng Santa Claus sa katabaan at ready ka ng rumampa sa snow. Weeeee!
Mas gusto ko pa rin ang weather sa Pinas, nakakamiss tuloy lalo na ngayong Pasko. Sigh. I'm sure blockbuster na naman ang mga mall sa dami ng nagki-krismas shopping, eh dito parang wala lang, ni wala nga akong naririnig na Christmas songs sa mga mall dito, ang KJ! Syempre di rin uso ang caroling, simbang gabi, bibingka at puto bumbong. PERO, pero, pero tuloy ang Pasko!! Kahit na konti lang kame dito na magcecelebrate, okay pa rin... at least konti lang reregaluhan, yun nga lang konti lang din ang matatanggap, lol!
Segway lang ako, b'day ni hubby tomorrow. Happy Birthday Sayang*. LuvU! Magpa-canton ka naman!
*Sayang is a term of endearment in Malay language. (Wala lang, maiba lang.)

November 30 - My Doctor confirmed that I was pregnant. I had easy pregnancies before and this one would be of no difference, or so I thought.
December 2 - I bled heavily. While I was being rushed to the ER, the blood gushed like hell. I told myself I'm not losing my baby, it's just blood, no pain... not even slight cramps. I wasn't giddy at all and I was very conscious. I know my little one was holding on to his dear life and I was more than determined to keep him. There's no way I'm letting go. My mind was very clear and my body was able, I was fear-free, I know my baby and I will get through this together. But the bleeding won't stop. I felt helpless as I look at my pants soaking with blood. At the hospital's ER, I felt blood clots coming out and I knew what that meant. Two kinds of ultrasound equipment were used to confirm my fear, I lost my baby and I couldn't do anything about it. Sadly, miscarriage is something you cannot stop once it occurred and I know no one is to be blamed. We have been blessed with 2 children but that doesn't make it any easier to let go. However, I know my little one is now peacefully resting in God's loving arms.
To my unborn baby,
I'm sorry we didn't even have a chance to touch you and hold you in our arms or kiss you. It broke our hearts to lose you... but we know God called you that day, He called you home. We'd love to have you here with us yet I know you're now sleeping in Heaven's nursery.
You're gone but not forgotten. You left too soon but you will forever stay in our hearts, my little angel.
We love you,
Daddy, Mommy, Kuya Reign and Ate Shine
