My Wedding Kwento Part 2

By the time we went out, the weather was gloomy (I was already praying then that it won’t rain). And then…it started to sprinkle…oh what a disaster my wedding would be, or so I thought. It was also kind of traffic along Alabang-Zapote Rd (It was a Saturday), and the guard from BF Homes almost prevented us from entering the gate…I thought I would have to get out of the car and point out that it is my wedding day and the church was inside the Village…anyway, they were kind enough to let us pass.

When I arrived at the Church, almost everyone was there. My relatives, Jake’s relatives, our friends, our suppliers, and a lot more. I thought I would have time to make chika to my friends but then Michelle suddenly entered the car and started to retouch my makeup. Oh he made me really pretty that day.

Then I saw the organizers from the Church already starting to instruct the entourage. And then I heard the choir sing my special request – Canon in D Acapella version. It was just so heavenly. And then my time to shine came…I got out of the car, and Christine was fixing my gown. Ate was actually instructing me to go walk with my parents. I told her I want to have my “moment” ahahahah!!! So I met my parents half-way through the altar, to the tune of “Perfect Moment” by Martine Mccutcheon. Another glitch here, the CD almost didn’t play…it was already the chorus when Diane began to sing. Oh anyway, her voice was beautiful that I didn’t mind the glitch. By the way, by this time, it was raining pretty hard!!!

While I was walking, I was concentrating on NOT tripping. I actually didn’t notice anyone. My eyes were just glued to my groom, who I saw was on the verge of tears!!! I couldn’t help but smile…he was such a lucky man...hahahaha!!!

And then we were at the altar together, where Fr. Rene greeted us. The ceremony started. Everyone loved Fr. Rene. He was our former school chaplain back in high school and we wanted him to marry us. His homily was really long, as always. But we loved it! There was no dull moment there. It was very light but full of meaning. We simply loved the ceremony.

Then came my dreaded moment…the vows. I was really not prepared with my vow. I just finished it the night before! Shame on me…Jake said his vows first (vow to be posted later). I was so touched with his vow. It was so sweet. My vow was…ok…ahhahaha…I admit, he put more effort on writing the vow than I did.

After that, the ceremony came on really fast. Before we knew it, it was time for pictorials. All smiles here and there…And then, we got out of the church and headed for the reception area, which was a good 5 minute drive away from PCJ.

My In My Womb 3d/4d Ultrasound Experience

Last Saturday, we had our 6th checkup with our OB-Gynecologist. So far, everything's ok. I passed my Glucose Challenge test, but I still need to cut on my sugar intake. We were also able to hear our little one's heartbeat. Next week I will be having my Tetanus Toxoid shot -- scary!!

After the checkup, we proceeded to Makati for our scheduled 3d4d ultrasound at In My Womb. I have heard lots of great reviews about this ultrasound center so we have decided to have our ultrasound there. Their center is located at 2f, The Link Bldg, Ayala Makati. The building is beside Landmark. Before proceeding, we had our lunch first at Ineng's Special BBQ -- great food, terrible customer service!

After eating, we then proceded to the 2nd level. We were greeted by a courteous nurse and I told her that I was scheduled for an ultrasound with Dra. Ramos. I would actually like to have the procedure done by the owner, Dra. Shiela Illescas, since i ha…

Transformation

What do you think of when you hear the word "Transformation"?

For me it means changing and evolving for the better.  But how does it really feel like when one undergoes the transformation process?  

One thing's for sure -- it is not an easy process.  When you undergo a transformation, it means going back to basics.  Unlearning what you know and accepting new ways.  Sometimes transformation can hit you pretty bad that you think it is not necessary.  But in the long run, it is always important to understand the need for such change.  You may not believe and understand it now, but at least try to give it a chance.

Sometimes hearing the word scares me.  Not because I am afraid of what it brings, but because I am too comfortable where I am now and I think any movement will cause me to fall down.  But hey, I have been through tougher times.  And I will surpass this for sure.
