Letter to Oreo: Five Days at our New Old Home


Dear Oreo,

We’re here right now at our new family house in Calapan. Last Friday Mommy went home to attend the opening of PUREGOLD Calapan, and then extended our stay here so we can spend some time with your lolo and lola.

We miss daddy, but I missed my parents a lot too.

Your lolo and lola fed us a lot of yummy food, which included roast chicken, pork soup stock boiled over a low fire on a clay stove for hours, crabs, spicy shrimp, and just about every other food mommy has been craving for the past month.

We kicked out your lolo and took his place beside your lola, and mommy slept well for days. We also got some “exercise” buying mommy more clothes from the local ukay-ukay – including several swimwear so we can still be cute on the beach.

We’re really excited for your arrival Oreo. I hope you like our vacation as much as I do. Don’t worry baby, we’ll see daddy soon.


Mommy Yemmy


Letter to Oreo: Watermelon Day :)


Dear Oreo,

It’s sunny outside but it’s been raining for quite a while too. Your daddy gave me a spoon and a quarter of watermelon on a plate to eat, and it felt like a good summer day.

See you soon little love,


Letter to Oreo: We got you your Momo


Dear Oreo,

Yesterday your Daddy and I went window shopping in Robinson’s Pioneer. On our way back to the parking lot, we saw this pile of stuffed toys on sale – big white teddies and purple dinosaurs that nobody was really buying. Mommy being mommy, I just had to take a look at some of the fluffiness, and dad came along.

As I was checking out the big white bear, daddy pulled a tiny creamy dog from the pile, and I think I’ve never seen your dad have that look on his face before – he immediately adored the little dog so much. Daddy started to say something about how kids always have something they always hold on to, and he can just imagine you love this little bundle of doggy fluff.

But then daddy returned the little dog to the pile reluctantly, saying it will be a long time before you’d get to play with him. But he had this really cute puppy look on his face, so I said, ‘We can buy it now and keep it for him? See, he’s really just cheap’. ‘But I don’t have any cash with me’, he said. So I said, ‘Then I’ll buy it for you.’ and immediately, his face lighted up like a kid’s, he just looked to thrilled and happy and all.

As we paid for the stuffed puppy, your dad said, ‘Let’s call him Momo’.

And so Momo it is, another someone out here waiting excited to see you.

Love you always baby,


Letter to Oreo: First kick for Daddy

Dear Oreo,

So I woke up your dad in the middle of the night, because you were kicking a lot that time. He was so sleepy but i had him lay his hand on my tummy anyway, and we waited for you to kick. And you did baby – one really strong kick that daddy felt for the very first time.

And it was dark and all so I couldn’t see his face, but I could feel he was so thrilled and happy because he gave us both an extra kiss, and extra I love you’s, and he kept saying how amazed he is that you could kick so hard so early.

Good job baby. Thank you Oreo for bringing so much magic in our lives.

Mommy and Daddy love you.
