4 Stars in a Row for Week 1

Well, it should have been 5 stars but Monday is just an introduction day for Little Zoie and the rest of the class.

The start of the real learning was last Tuesday, and she got her first ‘Happy Star’ with a little ‘Happy Eraser’ as well.  She also got written commendations every day on her diary notebook which I read when she got home.  I understand that she’s doing very well in school.

Let’s count her ‘Happy Stars’:

For the past four days of her first week of school, she’s been very high spirited and, let’s say, hyper whenever she’s showing off her ‘Happy Stars’, well it’s great that she’s enjoying school so much.

Her small school is right in front of SM – Muntinlupa, and whenever she gets a ‘Happy Star’ she gets a reward. ^_^ Her requested reward is always Zagu Chocolate flavor.  And since we don’t want to spoil her so much, and it’s getting quite expensive if we do it every day, we talked that she needs to collect 5 stars every week starting next week.  And she agreed! ^_^

Now, we’re going to collect 5 stars in a row. 😉

Another Family Swimming: The Water and Little Zoie

Little Zoie loves water.  It is one characteristics that she got from me and hubby.  Hubby is a great swimmer, unlike me. 😉

Last weekend my side of the family planned a family outing, it was supposed to be a night swimming on Saturday night for some reason we have too many bumps along the trip.  We never experienced trouble going on a family outing before but maybe that time is an exemption.  Anyway, I’m here at Little Zoie’s blog so I’ll be posting more of my daughter than filling up this post with my personal rant. ;-p

Like what I’ve said, Little Zoie loves water, and even though she’s just 4 she always tag along in pools that is way beyond her height.  But this Sunday (we settled in the resort midnight of Sunday so kids only got to swim early in the morning after their rest), the resort is just filling up the big pool so the water is not that deep for kids.

See Little Zoie enjoys herself in the water. 😉

She just woke up here.  Rather I woke her up.  The 8am will be too much for them so I made her took a dip at 6am. ^_^

Good thing, we bought her floaters.  She get to play in the water a little far from me.  Of course, I’m watching nearby.


As soon the sun starts heat up and hurt the skin.  I decided to finish up Little Zoie’s swim for the day.  Of course, she objected, but I promised her we’ll get to come back to any of Laguna’s resort on hubby’s VL this week, and I’ll definitely let her play in the water the whole day. 😉

How’s your summer so far?

My Birthday Party…

I just turned 4 years old last Sunday, and I’m thanking mommy and daddy for the birthday party they organized for me. ^_^ I know mommy said it wasn’t too much, but for me it was already a fun day for me.  I’m happy as long as my cousins and little friends are present on my birthday, although some didn’t make it.

In mommy’s previous post, my first activity that day was kite flying with Lolo King and Tita P, read the story here.  I know mommy was busy the whole day, I’ve seen her so busy cooking and preparing for my birthday, even when I woke up from my afternoon nap she’s still walking around. 🙂

As mommy preparing me for my party, I keep on asking where’s Tita Yca, daddy’s youngest cousin and my best friend.  We literally grow up together. 🙂

The party was held at my Lolo King’s house, just a couple streets away from our little apartment.  My first guest were daddy’s side of the family, Lolo Daddy, Lola Mommy, Ninang CB and Tita CM.  My cousin Kinah was staying at Lolo King’s sister, her Lola, just on the next door.  They’re living in one compound.

Lolo Daddy was entertaining us using Tita P’s guitar. ^_^ I’m singing ‘Bahay Kubo’ here, while Kinah’s not in the mood to sing along with me.

Small number of invited guests were coming in but Yca hasn’t arrived yet and mommy and daddy said it’s getting late already. They’re worried guests are getting hungry and we are not starting the party, but I wanted to see Yca before the party starts.  We didn’t started the party, no blowing of candles yet, not until Yca arrived.

So when Yca arrived, they made me blow the candle on my birthday cake! 😉


I so love my birthday cake… ♥♥♥

We have a tradition that every little kid can blow a birthday candle even though its not their birthday. Just for fun, they say. This tradition started with Yca and me. By the way, Yca is just 2 months older than me. ^_^ I let Kinah blow my candle…

I wanted Yca and Lexie, the other little girl mommy invited, she’s my new friend and Tita Tin’s daughter, to blow my candle as well but they didn’t want to… 🙁

Of course, after the candle blowing… I didn’t mind the adults, I just tagged along the kids and went outside to play! ^_^

Here are some pictures of my birthday, while the pictures of the feast are posted on mommy’s food blog, Bonz World – My Kitchen World.

Hmm… I didn’t noticed that mommy and daddy doesn’t have a picture with me, they’re not even in the pictures too! 🙁  Daddy’s busy with the camera, but he didn’t take pictures of us outside playing, while mommy’s busy making the guest full! ^_^

I’m also sharing this to a few memes:
