A Beautiful Miracle
Posted on: 4th of November 2012 | Under: Baby Tales, Life & Love

**This will be my attempt to look back and share our whirlwind experience giving birth to a premature baby. Zoë’s NICU time, which lasted two and a half months(!), was a series of ups and downs. Most of it was really scary, but in the end, Zoë proved to be a great fighter. She is now a happy one-year-old, so loud and active, it’s hard to believe she came into the world so tiny and fragile.**

 

We are blessed. So very blessed, because God gave us a beautiful miracle in the form of a baby girl.

Zoë Sofia
Our precious gift.

No one can ever be prepared to give birth two and a half months too early. She wasn’t meant to arrive until November 2011. Eleven-elven-eleven, the day that we were looking forward to. I had pictured myself making that drive with my husband to the emergency room, armed with our hospital bag essentials. I had even planned on bringing my camera to the delivery room, hoping that one of the nurses could document her arrival. But all that went down the drain when our little girl decided that she wanted to come out early.

Our Wedding: Photo Fusion Slideshow
Posted on: 2nd of April 2011 | Under: Life & Love, Our Wedding

Finally got around to uploading our wedding photo fusion slideshow.

We were surprised to see some video shots during the slideshow, because it was supposed to be all photos. We knew John, our main photographer, was taking a few videos during the day, but we had no idea he was going to edit it into the slideshow. What a pleasant surprise!

Posted on: 9th of March 2011 | Under: Life & Love, Our Wedding

Our big day took one whole year of designing, choosing, deciding and planning. Quite a long time, but it was nothing compared to over seven years of love, sacrifice and relationship building for us to be able to fully commit to each other and finally say our yeses.

Photos of My Life No. 7: My Gadgets
Posted on: 16th of December 2010 | Under: Life & Love

Taking some time off wedding planning, here’s an overdue post on my seventh Photos of My Life: My Gadgets, as requested by Vince (duhdoctor) on Twitter.

Productivity and Gaming:

  • iPhone 3GS: This was the hubby’s old iPhone, before he upgraded to an iPhone 4. I don’t plan on upgrading, until they release the white iPhone! :)
  • Blackberry Curve 8320: I had a short love affair with Blackberries before I switched to the iPhone. I gave up on it when it started slowing down and dying unexpectedly. I use it as an extra phone now.
  • Motorola V3 in hot pink: This phone is almost 5 years old and should really retire soon, but I still use it as an extra phone when traveling.
  • iPod Touch: This is actually the hubby’s, but he passed it on to me when he got his first iPhone. I used it mainly as a gaming device. =P
  • iPod Nano: The hubby got this for me several Christmases ago. :)
  • Nintendo Game Boy Micro: I only play Mario Brothers on this =D
  • 13″ Macbook Pro: Replaced my old White Macbook for this last year.
  • iPad: This makes browsing on the internet easier and more convenient while in bed. Great for reading e-books, and an awesome gaming device too. I’m currently addicted to Jenga HD. =P We’re also using this for our wedding reception. :)

Cameras:

  • Fisheye 2: I’ve had this since last year, but I haven’t had time to use it. :(
  • Vivitar PN2011: I used to use this a lot. Makes pretty panoramic photos.
  • Fujifilm Instax Mini 7S: I bought this to replace my polaroid when they stopped making films. This develops smaller prints than the real polaroid, but I love it just the same.
  • Canon Ixus 80 IS: My trusty point and shoot. It’s two years old, but it still takes pretty photos. :)
  • Holga 120 CFN: I love Lomography and the pretty photos it develops. Haven’t used this in ages, because thanks to iPhone apps, I get to digitally process my photos looking like lomo shots now.

  • Polaroid Spirit 600. This is love! I still have one unused film, which I’m saving to use on a special occasion. I have a Polaroid i-Zone too, but I left that in Manila.

  • What I use most of the time: Canon 350 D and extra 50mm lens. This still works like a charm, but we really should upgrade soon! :)

What about you guys, what gadgets do you use?
