Happy Monday: Of mooncake, St. Jude procession and more

Oh my! A week has already past since I last wrote on this blog. The ber months are just whizzing past like crazy. My weekend calendar for November and December are now full thanks to the bazaar we’re organizing and the bazaars that we’re also joining. Plus, I’ve accepted a few other projects that I’m excited for as well. Will tell you about them more once they materialize.

Last week was highlighted by a Mooncake dice game and night out with our company employees.

Lady Luck must be in the room as 5 of 11 players hit chongwan (the grand prize in the dice game).

It was also a week’s rest from my SBD. Surprisingly, I didn’t gain weight but lost another 1 pound. I’m starting my 2 week SBD again today. Here’s hoping that I lose another 5-6lbs and hurdle the weight barrier. Here’s a few pictures of the food I had last week.

I ended the week with joining the St Jude procession for the first time. It was a rather leisure walk that took almost an hour to and from St Jude church.

Warren is also growing up fast. It seems he has inherited our late night sleeping ways also. We had one night where he refused to sleep and played around with my various books. Based on last week’s checkup, he also hasn’t gained weight and increased in height (booooo!).

Hoping this week is as productive and as memorable as the last.

How was your weekend? What made it memorable?

Baby Fashion – Changing Diapers and Accessories

One of the common problems with bringing your baby outside is having to change his diapers when it’s full or when he poops. I’ve rarely encountered a place let alone a mall which has a good changing area for babies. More often than not, the changing area in the restroom is rarely cleaned. Hence, we’ve constantly just resorted to having to change Warren outside on a flat surface or looking for an area with a flat surface.

It was such a relief to have found the Ah Goo Plush Pad product. It is comfortable enough for both permanent and portable use. It incorporates a lush memory foam cushion which provides superior comfort and support for babies for on-the-go parents like me. The Plush Pad® is soft, warm, water-repellent and machine washable!

It comes in other cool and fashionable designs. This is what we got for Warren.

The Ah Goo Plush pad can easily roll and fit into any diaper bag but I found this super cool diaper bag below. It’s super light and the compartments are all well though of.

The Ah Goo Plush Pad and Ah Goo Diaper bags are available in our Multiply store.

Day 1 of Expo Mom and Warren says “Balloon”

So, Saturday was day 1 of Expo Mom. I didn’t had time to prepare much for the expo because of the tons of work I had to do weeks prior. Managed to have a few marketing stuff printed – my roll-up banner, standees, flyers and calling cards. I also decided on the logo for Simple Bundles of Joy. What do you think of it?

Warren woke up at around 5AM and went back to sleep till 7PM. In between, I managed to prepare the stocks to be sold, loaded the van with the equipment and the stocks and printed out a few last minute stuff needed for the bazaar or expo. We left the house at around 8AM and was at Rockwell by 9AM. We managed to put everything up before the 10AM opening. Here’s our set-up. Thought it’s pretty decent and clean. Can you suggest any improvements?

I love the signage they gave us per stall although mine lacked an ‘s’ in the ‘bundle’ word.

There weren’t as much people in the expo at the start. After lunch, H and Warren visited me at the expo. At around 5PM, we left the expo to head out to Baba’s 3rd birthday party in Manila. We missed the kiddy celebration since it started at around 4PM. Good thing though were that there were still balloons left. I have a cheapskate kid. Balloons will make him smile. This video made my dad. Watch how he giggles and smiles. In the middle of the video, he follows H by saying “Balloon”! I thought that was amazing! He’s just 7.5 months now. 🙂

12 by 2012: Update # 4

Here’s where I’m at with my 12 by 2012 goals.

#1 – #3: FITNESS
I’m nowhere near losing the 20lbs! Darn! Proving harder than I was expecting. Probably need to really go to the gym everyday but with the Christmas fanfare and business going on, this is proving to be IMPOSSIBLE!

I ran the recent HSBC 10KM marathon. I finished the run in 1hr 22minutes! I kinda cheated though – skipped 1.5km but still finished a 10KM run within the allotted time. #2 COMPLETE!

Attending a class is definitely doable. Will go to the gym next week again. Will attend a class so I get to cross this OFF!

#4: WARREN
I’m almost there! Will have stuff printed out. Just waiting for the Holiday rush to die down so my staff has time to print the pictures out for me. Recently bought a set of picture frames to put Warren’s picture and decorate his room.

#5 – #7: BUSINESS
I am considering #5 and #6 as COMPLETE! We launched UNIFUNKT in the recent St. James Bazaar. Souvenirlab is hanging in there! The stores are delivering. Hoping that we get more sales this December.

Hubby and I are still in discussion mode with regards to his business idea.

#8: FINANCES
We just recently sold hubby’s old car so that gives us a little leeway with our finances. I have established a baseline already of what we have, what we need, and what we want moving forward. Hence, I’m considering this COMPLETE.

#9: BLOG
Simple Bundles of Joy is at 7734 hits. Keep us growing! Keep me inspired! Support my blog! 🙂

#10: HOME OFFICE
I have posted my design inspirations. Managed to allot enough space already at our room. Need time to put everything together. Will take on this task by the 19th onwards.

#11 – #12: TEAM and TRAVEL
My team is growing! Just added another member making our team 5 people (me included!). Looking forward to having 2 more people join by early next year. # 11 COMPLETE

I can taste the sands of EGYPT! Ooooohhhh … I’m hoping I don’t fall short! Just PHP220K APE!
