Till death do us part..

Or till nursing homes do us part? I know, I know.. Such a bleak topic for a wedding blog but this is part and parcel of marriage -- you know, the thing that comes after your dream wedding? Hehe! As I've said before, what comes after the wedding is more important than having your ultimate grandiose wedding. Sure, you got your fairytale ceremony and reception but horror of horrors, you failed to talk with your hubby about finances, having kids, religion, growing old and where you'll be in your twilight years, etc, etc prior to the wedding. End result? Lots of misunderstandings and heartaches in the marriage. It might even end -- all because you didn't talk about important stuff prior to the wedding.

Anyway, earlier this day, I watched a documentary about old married couples who were separated unnecessarily when their kids decided to put them in nursing homes. Just imagine spending more than 50 years with your loving spouse doing everything together then s/he's snatched away from you and s/he's not dead! What a heartache! =( One couple, who owned a successful cleaning franchise, related how their kids got tired of taking care of them thus sending them off to nursing homes. I was appalled! I couldn't do that to my parents -- they're the ones who took care of me when I was still unable to do anything on my own, then even as an adult they were always there. This kind of devotion can only be repaid by taking care of them in their twilight years.. I wouldn't dream of separating them through nursing homes! -_-


i'm back!!

Where have I been? When you're pregnant and is in the third trimester, there's only one answer to that question -- sleeping in our BED! Hehe! Seriously, I've been hibernating since I hit the eight month of my pregnancy. After hubby leaves for work, I just sleep the whole morning then wake up for lunch. If I feel good (no contractions, no backache, not sleepy, etc), I do household chores and go online. Sometimes I arrange our bedroom (I do this little by little) to accommodate baby Iya's stuff. However, it's hard moving furnitures when you're very much pregnant so our bedroom is basically just the same even up to now :p

Anyway, lately, I have been very busy online -- buying baby clothes and other items from eBay, Multiply and other online stores. I have also been researching travel stuff coz I'm itching to have R & R after I gave birth. For sure I'll use the expedia coupons a friend emailed me awhile back -- it would certainly save us a lot! A friend asked me whether buying online is cheaper than buying in malls, the answer is a resounding YES! Most of the baby stuff I bought were more than 50% cheaper than in retail stores. Also, for more savings and to avail free shipping, you can use coupons that online stores give away =)

Guess that's about it for now.. Hope to blog more before our baby girl comes out. Worse comes to worse, you'll probably hear from me for sure by March to announce Iya's arrival ^_^ For now, I bid you good day! Hehe!
