Gratitude # 16

This week was definitely busier than last week. Thankfully, it ended on a great note as well.

We were finally able to have dinner out, have a date night, and got to go out as a family for the first time in 19 months. Yes, since the pandemic started, this is the first time that we were able to go out of the house as a family and be with some people though with proper social distancing still.

first dinner out since February 2021

first dinner date in months

first family outing since January 2020

We went to a patch of land in Carmona where bikers go and where people jog. It's really just nature and cows plus a breath of fresh air while the sun shines on you which I have not experienced in a very, very long time. 

It was the first time for our youngest and I think it shocked him coz he has a mild fever now. It's a little sad that something so seemingly ordinary is now a shocking thing for pandemic babies. 

As for our eldest, he had a little bit of anxiety because this was the first time he had been exposed to this many people since the pandemic. My heart broke a little bit but at least he battled on and posed for photos. 

I also received a lot of brand love. Thank you so much to Lenovo Philippines, Shopee, Derma, PRULife, Visa, Kleenfant, Nature's Spring, Maya Hotcake, and Tic Tac for the love.

Overall, the last week was pretty productive. I achieved a lot but I still have so many pending as well. I hope that Khali feels better ASAP so that I can focus on finishing all of my tasks for the week. 

I also got some new cookware that is all made of clay, Khali had a product shoot for Cetaphil, and he and Yang are now becoming friends. 

What are you looking forward to this week?


  1. Oh wow, your black cat looks almost the same as the one we had

  2. Oh my gosh, I hadn't thought about pandemic babies not having been out and about much. My boys are 6 and 8 and still very active with school and scouts and friends, so things haven't changed much for them in a lot of ways.

  3. It's great that you were able to get out and be with friends. We too are struggling with the social distancing and rules regarding meeting with other people.

  4. This is beautiful!!! We all have a lot to be grateful for, our friends, family, health, etc....

  5. I'm so glad you were able to get out. We're still trying to play it as safe as possible, I just want to make sure we're healthy.

  6. You're family are blessed. Something that we should be thankful and grateful!

  7. I'm so happy you were able to go out to dinner as a family!

  8. Beautiful family, great that you managed to go out.

  9. Glad to know you're able to spend time with your family. Our quarantine restrictions have been eased for the next two week. Stay safe!
