jared’s day out: a trip to greenhills

i was clowing around kenny rogers 😉

26 april, tuesday

mum + dad decided to go to greenhills just so we’d break our normal routine of going to the mall, or to the grocery near our place. we left at about 10am, since it’ll be quite a long journey plus we won’t know if there will be traffic in the main thoroughfares in the metro. 
we arrived a little before 12noon, just in time for lunch. we went to kenny rogers to eat. i simply love their chicken noodle soup, in fact, it is one of the only few solids i take 😉
after our sumptuous meal, it is shopping time + we walked around the shopping area scouting a rash guard for me + several other items like shorts + pajamas. after much walking around the densely populated area, here’s what mum + dad got for me:

mum got this maong shorts for P350
these pajamas are at P70 each

we were not able to find a rash guard with a cute design that fits me so mum decided to just look some place else for that.  not after she bought herself some stuff too. she got shirts + pajamas as well.

after several hours of scouring the area for best buys + great bargains, we were all tired with feet hurting that we decided to call it a day. but on our way out, we saw a big + small co. outlet + mum decided to spend our remaining gc’s. here’s what we’ve got, a nice pair of board shorts, a white summer tee, + a size 10 slip-ons in denim color:
mum also got hungry so we made a quick stop to the food court right before leaving the mall. mum had yummy plato wraps sandwich with a tall glass of gulaman. whilst my mum eats, i was checking out these huge, black ball (made into fountains which serve as nice centerpiece for the foodcourt) they are just the coolest + i had fun playing + running around it! too bad, mum was not able to take our photos here since dad left the camera in the car a little while ago.
it was a tiring day + we went home quite late, but it sure is one enjoyable shopping adventure. i can’t wait for the next one!
where did you go the last time you had a shopping spree? 😉

messy-go-round 02: rice krispies medley

mum (in her desperate attempt to make me eat solids, i guess ;)) would allow me to have my own bowl of food + give me a spoon to go with it, so i can spoon all the goodies to my heart content. but almost all the time, + much to my mum’s frustration, my food would end up more like a plaything + scattered on the floor or stuck on my face 🙂 

take the rice krispies for example, i spoon most of the onto the monoblock chair + onto the floor afterwards. i also enjoy playing with my food with my hands, as clearly illustrated by this photo:

i guess mum also allows me to play with my food so i can be familiar with them + hopefully will soon be comfortable enough to grab a bite or take a spoonful. maybe in the near future i would. for now, i am totally enjoying my bottle + is definitely having a grand time making a beautiful mess of my food 🙂

jared’s little corner is back + so is blogger!

a view from my room
it has been one quiet day from this little corner, no thanks to blogger’s recent chaos. mum was just hurriedly trying to post some of our backlogs when the post editor suddenly gone berserk + she could no longer post (that was wednesday, i think) then yesterday morning, she could no longer sign in on our blogger account + had to give up updating this blog altogether.
we are only glad that blogger is back + so are we..
offline it was quite a laid-back day with practically nothing to do, i guess mum was feeling a little lazy so she was easy on the home chores, nothing note-worthy really, apart from the power interruption (again, since there was another one in wednesday too!) which happened whilst mum is cooking dinner a little late. it meant one very hot + humid night again for me, but i guess i was a bit exhausted + dosed off easily anyway. i am still in dreamland as you read this…
also, we will be heading Subic-bound in  a few hours (yes, + whilst i sleep soundly, mum was up for almost 24 hours already!). it will be our first family swimming outing + i am sooo excited. too bad my tito + titas cannot join us since they will be busy with work half of the day. i do hope we can go on a swim again before summer ends. maybe somewhere just near our place so anyone, including my cousins, can join us 🙂
happy weekend everyone + stay safe y’all!
and please do not forget to join our very first giveaway (if you haven’t yet!), much thanks to those who joined (i was hoping you can all be winners, but alas, this corner has quite a limited budget, we’ll just come up with something in the future!) + for those who forgot to indicate which prize you’d like to vie for, mum has left a comment on your post + do update us as soon as you can, ayt?
