Rice Cooker Baon

My wife have a eccentric bus mate and yesterday she saw her at the usual metro station.

“Oh bakit may dala kang rice cooker?” My wife asked.

“Naleyt kasi ako ng gising. Hindi na ako nakapagbaon.”

Low Battery Wee Wee

Every time before I clean her up before bed time, I always see to it that I put her in the toilet for her to pee one last time.

Last night, I asked her to “Ok, Ysabella, Wee-wee!”

She shook her head and answered, “Low battery.”

She knows that anything that is not functioning is ‘low battery’. Apparently, even her not being able to wee-wee is low battery.

Ysabella’s First Movie

We were two for two on including Ysabella to our weekly movie watching. Wreck it Ralph was a success. She finished the movie without any fuss then came Spider-Man Into the Spiderverse and she loved it even more.

We were confident that she will enjoy a movie as long as (1) she has a bucket full of popcorn and (2) it was musical and or animation.

Then came Bumblebee. We were hoping that this could be her full live action movie in the theatre.

At 90% of the movie (almost finished), she screamed and kicked and wanted us to change what was showing to Baby Bus! Her favorite YouTube channel. Ugh. It was embarrassing and funny at the same time.

Mitch had to bring her outside.

Not yet. Live action. Not yet.

Sold Us Out

Ysabella has mixed feelings about our singing careers.

Most of the time she would request us to sing and at times she would tell us to shut it— “Don’t sing! Don’t sing!”

A few nights ago, I told Mitch we should sing a duet every night before bed. When we started bursting our lungs out, Ysabella pretended to dial her palm and placed it on her ears, “Hello police? Mommy and daddy are singing…”

Gen Z Baby

Being the daughter of a Xennial, my baby who was used to having face filter apps, tried to smile after a face paint activity.

She thought it was an app!

Where’s the tongue?

Jervin went to the Toilet

In a close-knit group like our choir, we have a motto… “TALO ANG PIKON.”

Today, one member went to the toilet while everybody was vocalizing.

“Si Jervin?”

It was too obvious that he was not there so one screamed, “Nagtoilet.”


When he arrived, everybody screamed, “Ambaho! Yuck! Ewww.”

He stood up and told everyone, “Hindi ba kayo mga tumatae?!”

The Craft in 2018

We were rewatching The Craft tonight and we asked JV, “Hindi mo pa to napanood?”

“Kelan po ba yan pinalabas?” He asked.


“Ay kakapanganak ko pa lang ho nyan,” he answered.

“Bastos ka!”
