A Baby Shower of Love by the MD Faculty

I was not really planning for any baby shower for my baby Alyanna since I still need to save money for my childbirth. 🙂  I am also excited to go home in the Philippines on March 8 , see my old friends and stay there for almost 4 mos! (yes, I got my annual  and maternity leave for 4 months!)

But then, one of the faculty friends asked me when will I be leaving, and that would be 2 weeks from now. So Doc Naomi said, ” Let’s have a baby shower, I will give the money to “madir” (Dr. Sayao) so she can cook!  I was so surprised for her generosity of giving me one!  🙂

And so we held it last Saturday, Feb 25, in our place at Vista Perdana, Butterworth. The usual baby shower has giveaways like baby boots or baby bottles, programmes for the baby and gift opening. but two days is too short to prepare for everything. So ours was a different one. It consists of eating Filipino dishes, laughing out hearts out, and singing videoke. It was so fun.

I always remember, that if you have a good attitude towards others, they will also do the same to you. Yes, I am an orphan, but my Filipino colleagues made me feel I have a family here in Penang.

I am so fond of posting the pictures with my myriads of friends.  They are my wealth.

(How about you? Are you also the KING OF MEDIOCRITY?PRETENDING TO HAVE A HAPPY FAMILY? No other friends was able to bear your attitude? No other people talking to you but your “VIRTUAL” friends via internet? To know the person well, share a house with that person or  work with him…you will know his TRUE COLORS!

It made me angry…the raging hormones of pregnancy again. Sometimes, I think my blog as a HORCRUX. But this only shows I’m a better person than YOU. I have lots of  TANGIBLE FRIENDS. YOU DON’T HAVE!!! )

This is one of the quotations I LOVE MOST.

Can you relate...???

(So now let’s see, if you have 2 or 4 housemates you hated most, it’s okay …but what am I gonna call you, if the 24 FILIPINO doctors don’t talk to you anymore? Think it over, DOCTOR….

Okay, so much of hatred… !)

Dra. Sayao cooked a lot of Filipino dishes: menudo, ginataang manok, ginataang bilo-bilo, and palitaw. Dr. Roy brought his Magic Sing ( this can do something “magically” in our voice!).

It was so fun! I would also like to thank for their gifts for my baby!
