What it feels like to be suspected of COVID-19?

Hello amazing people! Do you remember my last post on this blog? If you read it, this is a continuation of it, if you don’t read it yet I leave the link here, but anyways you can skipped it if you’d like to.

On Friday, March 27, around 4:30 in the afternoon, we decided to go the hospital for check-up, then to our shocked I’ve been suspected of COVID-19 together with my brothers. Why? simply because of our symptoms and maybe the travel history of our parents. Japan are very strict when it comes to the hospital protocols and guidelines especially there’s COVID-19 going on. They suspected that we might have COVID regarding our health conditions and since our parents are recently got back from the Philippines (starting April 3, Philippines are included in Japan’s travel ban.) They think that our parents might be asymptomatic carriers that’s why the hospital recommended us to take a COVID-19 test for our best assurance and less worrisome.

Sometimes all we need is a break, so take it.

Just today, Monday, I can’t go to work because of my temperature is 37.5 degrees, I have no flu or anything, just lately I get easily tired maybe because I have no time to rest and sleeplessness but since there’s pandemic going on, I’m not allowed to go to work since our hospital rules are so strict. No matter I wanted to go, do my job, still they didn’t allow me to. Stay at home, taking meds and rest are all I need.

Why It’s okay not to have a “lots” of friends? Is it really okay?

Are you just like me? Not having too many friends? Nowadays, it’s easy to say “oh she’s my friend”, “yah! we’re friends” but my overthinking asks are they really friends? As in seriously?! I remember someone saying in an argument proudly saying, “Look at me, I have so many friends, and you’re not!Hmm… my eyebrow suddenly raise (like The Rock) and thought to myself “Tsk. Tsk.” that’s not what I’ve known or heard from your so called “many friends.” It’s not about the number of friends you had. Friends are family too, like you know the real one. It’s rarely to find a genuine friendship. If you have one or two, you’re lucky so keep it for real. If you don’t have one, it’s absolutely okay, you have you’re family, and that’s one of the best friendship you’ll ever had.

Thought for Today: “We are one” in this COVID-19 battle.

In every corner of the world, we are fiercely facing fear and anxiety of this pandemic so called COVID-19. Just this Friday, we had the second case in Hiroshima City, located in Onomichi Town, where are town are almost 19 minutes by car. Am I scared? Surely YES. That man who got positive in COVID-19 just recently travel for business trip and came back in Japan, no symptoms at first then few days suddenly turn weak and become the second case of COVID-19 in our city. I’m freaking worried and scared because my mom and my father-in-law just got back from their travel in the Philippines, same airport where the man land to, but not the same flight or day, but still it scares me, that’s why we keep on praying for their continuously protection from this pandemic and each everyone of us.

WHERE MY HEART IS

Yey! After (7) seven years, we finally made it to travel and come back home for a one month vacay in the Philippines, sabi nga nila “There’s no place like home.”  and indeed it is. We planned the trip for so long but it’ll be a little bit surprise to my in-laws, where we decided to stay . It’s thrilling to see their reactions if they see their apo’s for the first time especially the two bulilits.

So the day comes, I even posted a facebook live while on the train going to Kansai Airport but the post titled are something twist so that my in laws will not be suspicious and yet the journey continues. We booked and fly with Jetstar airline, well it’s one of the cheapest flights aside from Cebu Pacific + we’ve been rewarded to spend our waiting hours to a VIP lounge, a great ambiance with over looking airplane runway + food deli to eat and kids can even spent their time on coloring books. ‘cors got coffee, sushi, coffee and dessert.

When we’re about to land in Manila Airport, It feels like my heart will fall while the airplane was landing para kaming nasa rides, scary! ramdam mo talaga and those people shouts makes you more nervous haha! Anyways, we landed safe naman.

ANOTHER GOD’S LAGNIAPPE

  As expected, God is full of surprises and in the end it’ll always give you the sweetest smile to wear in your beautiful faces. We didn’t expect that God will give us another blessing, a new love, and another added to the Fronda’s family.

  I know, I know it’s been 3 months since I gave birth to my second child Grey, not too long and yeah so early, and that’s when I notice that I’m preggy again but how could we spurn such great love, a God’s lagniappe. I admit, I’m frightened, jumpy and even doubted it at first, because I really don’t know what to do, thoughtfully asking myself, “Kaya ko ba?”, keep catechizing my hubby “Kayanin ba natin?”, praying and asking for guidance, telling him, if these is your plans so let it be and we will be happy to received it.

DIY Friday: Making a DIY-ísh Fabric Mannequin

Hiyeee~! It’s DIY Friday again. Are you ready for making a DIY-ish Fabric Mannequin? So let’s get started. This design idea started when I begin to hooked on sewing and making a tutu skirt & dresses. Of course, It is more catching and enchanting If I have a torso mannequin to display my handmade dresses. I actually wanted to purchase a kids torso mannequin at online market, the designs are very pleasing & fascinating but the prices are way too expensive (but I guess, it’s worth it as well), It will costs me from $41 to $100. + the shipping. And then my crafty mind begins to shine, so I decided to tackle making my own DIY-ish mannequin, cheapo but pretty simple & nifty. Continue reading “DIY Friday: Making a DIY-ísh Fabric Mannequin”

DIY Friday: Little Desk Organizer

Owhkey! It’s DIY Friday!  Let me share another recycled treasure. I created this for my little princess named Phoebe. I’d like to surprise her (cause she always love surprises) and can’t wait to see her adorable smile and the sparks in her eyes, of course her sweet “thank you” and lovely kisses she’ll give. She had this so called “Little Desk”, where she always drew and paints. It’s just an empty little desk, simple and unembellished, so I decided to make her a little desk organizer; just to fill the emptiness into fancy one.

I always have tons of empty boxes of detergent, milk carton and tissue paper roll, etc. I collected it until I can make a beautiful desk organizer. From detergent boxes, turn into a desk book organizer, where she can situate her little reading books & other stuff; from tissue paper roll turn into a pen organizer, and the chocolate box, I just use it as a base of the tissue to support the things that will put in. Once the empty boxes and tissue roll are clean, cut and smooth, all you need to do is wrap the boxes with origami stylish paper or deco wall sticker paper (which I use) but any kind of paper you prefer is fine, and use ribbon or any deco for embellishing your desk organizer. And there you have it, another cute and dazzling DIY desk organizer.

LITTLE SHADES OF GREY

         After five years of trying to conceive, carefully bearing 36 weeks and gave birth in the month of August day 3. I can finally glimpse, listen and touch everything about him, a new member of the family, my sweet number two, and yes I finally have a son.

We named him Grey Avery“, I’m guessing that you might have an idea where we get his name. Yeah I know, some are asking me If we named him through Fifty shades of Grey, or the hottie Christian Grey.

I indeed adore Mr. Grey (Sino ba naman ayaw kay Christian Grey! haha!) but actually we get it from the TV series ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘, my husband and I are so hooked watching the series, not only because the characters and plots are truly amazing and interesting but also because we’re both relates or interested in science, the operating room, the setting, and of course the emergency rush. We have great fondness to Meredith character and I’m the one who insist that Avery will be his second name from Dr. Jackson Avery, sugar crush. Haha!

Participating in a bazaar was a good and gleeful experience. Let’s talk about the feelings I’ve felt.

It was held in Mihara, Hiroshima, Japan. It’s a bazaar project of Mihara Catholic Church. Thanks to Father Arnaldo and my friends for supporting me.
