On November 26, Mary Jane Agno (18 years old from Davao) started working for me as a yaya. Mabigat loob ko sa kanya at first but I decided to give her the benefit of the doubt. First day nya, pinakita nya kagad how addicted she is to texting and talking on her celfone. So we talked to her about it and told her na hinde pwede yung ganon. Ilang beses namin yan napagsabihan in a span of 1 MONTH.

2 weeks ago, I woke up from my afternoon nap and found out na umalis sya. Hinde nagpaalam saken and sabe ng other helper namin nagpunta daw sa cousin nya who works for another household in our village. I was furious so pinasundan ko and nakita ni other helper na nakikipaglandian sa mga construction workers. Pinagalitan ko at sabe nya hinde daw nagpaalam sya kase TULOG ako. So I said 'pag tulog ako lage ka aalis ng walang paalam?' I was really upset. I wanted to her to leave na non but hubby asked me to give her another chance. Pero starting non talagang lalo bumigat loob ko sa kanya.

That same week, nawalan ako ng 200 sa wallet. I have never lost money at home and I have never mistaken my money count kase super OC ako with how my paper bills are arranged in envelopes and in my wallet. Still, I brushed it off pero pinaghinalaan ko na sya. The other day, I lost another 200 na binawas sa magkaibang lugar sa wallet ko. Wala pang ilang oras since I put my money there and I COUNTED it so I know hinde ako nagkakamali. I told my mom that I've been losing money and she said she also lost her gold bracelet 2 weeks ago.

Papainan ko sana sya the following day. Pero while I was at LTO to get my driver's license, nagsabe ang ga** dun sa isang helper namin na aalis na daw sya kase minamadali sya ng pinsan nya. So my hubby was the one who searched through her stuff and talked to her. Konti na lang ang gamit nya non kase sabe nung isang helper namin pag gabi daw naghahatid ng gamit yugn yaya dun sa pinsan nya. My suspiscion about her stealing was confirmed nung sinabe ni other helper saken na the night I lost another 200, nilibre daw sya sa Mcdo nung yaya. Eh pano mangyayari yon, wala na syang sinuweldo saken kase 1st week pa lang nya nag-advance na ang bruha. Kaya pala hinde nawawalan ng pera.
I found out a lot of things that she said. Napaka-walangya nya talaga. Pina-blotter na namin kase nalaman din namin na she took lots of pictures of Zoe on her celfone tapos sinesend daw sa probinsya. Talagang hinde sya nagpa-abot saken kahapon kase I swear masasaktan ko talaga sya.

Eastwood Richmonde Hotel

I got an email regarding the opening of Eastwood Richmonde Hotel and thought of booking a room this December. However, hubby was discouraged when we heard that they don't offer buffet breakfast yet so instead, we decided to try their dinner buffet last Friday.

After splurging on cute little outfits for Zoe at Baby Gap, Baby Guess, and Ralph Lauren, we went to the Eastwood Mall where we had an encounter with Santa Claus. Being Zoe's first Christmas, we couldnt resist taking pics with Santa. Too bad we didnt get a pic of the 3 of us with him since we didnt bring Zoe's yaya along as our official photographer.

Dinner buffet at Eastwood Richmonde Hotel is only 780/pax which of course doesnt include drinks. The spread isnt comparable to Circles or even The Fab (Holiday Inn) but hubby and I agreed that it's value for money since the dishes are quite good. The advantage of going to a small sized buffet is that you get to sample all or most of the dishes. Whenever we go to The Fab or Circles, my eyes get so overwhelmed that I dont get to eat a lot.

So here are some of the pictures of the food (plus pics of us!). I say some because we didnt get to take pics of the other food that we had since they all went rushing down our tummies especially after all that shopping =)
