Mommy Moments – Dear Baby

1 Comment

To my dearest Deianira Sammara,

My Princess

The day that I learned that I’m having you was a major turning point in my life. I grew without the presence of my mother and father thus I don’t want you to experience that. The first time that I heard your heart beat during a prenatal checkup, I still can’t believe that inside me there is life that in just a few months time will be my own. The first time I held you in my arms, I know that I will love you the rest of my life. I love you so much my sweetie. Your growing fast and I’m a bit afraid of it. I want to be the best mom for you! May God make me an instrument to guide and hone you as a God fearing individual with good values. Take care always!

with all Love,

Mommy

To my little boy Jed Nathaniel,

My little Prince

You are another best gift from GOD. Our little angel. Just like your sister, I will love you as long as I live. Your sweet smile every morning makes up my day. I hope that mommy will be your number one girl :D. I pray that you will grow as a gentleman with good heart. Loving you so much my little prince!

with all Love,

Mommy

My post for Mommy Moments.

Hongkong Day 5

Leave a comment

Our fifth and last day in HK. It’s still raining :D. We cancelled our plan in going to Ngong Pin (Giant Buddha) because its foggy and raining, instead we decided to go shopping for pasalubong.

On top of Hubby’s list is a branded perfume. I’ve read in PEX site that perfumes are cheaper there, so in spite of the heavy rain, we checked out, leaved our baggage at Taisan and off we go to do shopping.

Highlights of Day 5 – our last day

Bonjour and Sassa ( this stores are almost everywhere, they sell cosmetics, perfumes etc)

– Lung shing dispensary – along grainville road.Dispensary is pharmacy in HK. But they are known also to sell branded perfumes and cosmetics. There are many people when we reached the place, after looking around, we leaved the place empty handed.

– Hopewell Dispensary – from Lung shing, we walk our way back, then this dispensary caught my eye. I forgot the exact address but it’s not along Grainville Road. It is on one of the  streets on your left side if your walking along Grainvilled Road towards Nathan Road. They sell branded tester perfume for a really cheap price. This is where we bought my Bulgari 100 ml tester and Dolce Blue 5ml, and hubby’s Issey Miyaki. Hubby is very happy with the purchase :D.

– Mirador Mansion  – This is where we bought Souvenir shirt. 5 Shirts for 100 HK$ for big size, and 6 shirts for 100 Hk$ for smaller size and Keychains worth 40 HK$ for 6 pieces.)

– City Gate Outlet – Factory Outlet of Signature clothes, shoes etc. We bought Crocs for the kids and Giordano shirts and Caps. There are many people and I think a half-day won’t be enough if you will do your shopping here.

– HKIA – We took a cab from City Gate Outlet to HKIA. Our flight is 7:30 PM, and we were there at around 5 PM. The airport is so huge that we don’t want to cram ourselves thus allotting plenty of our time .

– Goodbye Hongkong, see you again next time 😀

We will definitely miss Hongkong. We thought that a 4N/5D stay would be enough. Well, it is if you will compare it to a 2N/3D stay on our first trip.

On our last day, we merely took pictures . Maybe we still hadn’t grasp the thought that in just few hours our vacation will end :(.

*Tips – If your planning to shop, give at least one day for it. For me, 5 days is still not enough :D. Pictures and more pictures. In case you missed Hongkong, browsing your photo collections will relieve the memories. City Gate Outlet is a must-see place because of the cheap price of branded items,that is if you plan to shop.
