Kiki & Lala

Archive for June 2012

I had only 24 hours to take the splendor of this city in.  So let me show you what I saw.

The part of Chicago that I was in was a well planned, clean and pristine city.  A perfect balance of old and new.

In my biased opinion, in all of Chicago’s glory…it’s still not New York City! 😉


Easter Fun

Posted on: June 22, 2012

I was cleaning my room today and found our Good Housekeeping feature.  After reading the article, I felt guilty and ashamed so here I am, not necessarily back from real world hectic chaos because I’m still in a busy whirl.  Point is, I managed to find time to post.  I’ve been meaning to share with you this afternoon of pure laughter and fun that was Easter Sunday.  Insert snarky comment on late post here.  

So Christine and Kiki (another one) invites us over for Easter.  We had a wonderful feast of beef short ribs cooked by the Argentinian Chef, all kind of sides to go with it and a boatload of bubbly.  Here is some of the craziness that went on.

Welcome to the United Nations – in this picture is a colorful mix of South American, European, Asian and Middle Eastern diversity that you can probably only find in this city.

Enjoying the variety of meats that we got from our neighborhood carneceria.

Argentina vs Germany in horsing around.  Looks like Argentina is winning here.

After that decadent lunch we went up to the rooftop to take in the city’s spectacular view.

Moments of sweetness…

And moments of silliness.

Blogging about this day makes me miss Chris 😦  Wish she were still here!


So I recently asked a veteran mother of many (who shall remain nameless!) for tips on raising a sizable family. And here’s what she came up with almost immediately:

1. Grow up with them.
2. Scream as much as you can – won’t harm them a bit – look at my children.
3. Stay away from Dr. Spock.
4. Let them talk as much as they can – just be very sure you have the last say – most of the time they end having the last say, most specially when they get older and you get much older
5. Love them to death – this can kill you but they’ll survive.

Gotta love her!

I’ve never seen a single Bourne movie. Espionage flicks are hardly my favorite. But there’s no denying how much more fun this looks because… well, it really is more fun in the Philippines.
