The one with the anniversary wishlist

October will always be one of my favorite months of the year simply because it's Abet's and my anniversary month. It's extra special because we have only one anniversary--we got married exactly five years after we got together as boyfriend and girlfriend. It's even more special than ever this year because not only is it our very first as a married couple, but also because we're now soon-to-be parents.

I already know what Abet wants as a present: a MacBook Pro. Alas, I cannot afford it in time for our anniversary. It will take me a few more months of saving (and overtime work) before I can get it for him. Good thing he's--to borrow a bit of fast food terminology--"willing to wait." As for me, I want nothing but gadgets, and I don't mean the latest iPhone or iPad. I want kitchen gadgets. While other women will probably ask for something fancy, I want kitchen stuff. Yes, I have turned into a domestic diva.

Here are some of the things I want:
plum KitchenAid mixer (I've wanted one for the looongest time)
Oster blender (it has to be Oster)
ice cream/gelato maker
panini press (that opens all the way so it's also a grill)

Ah, to dream. Libre lang naman mangarap. I don't think I'll be getting any of the items above this month because we're seriously saving up for Peanut's arrival, but that's okay. The baby is our priority right now. We'll probably get these as Peanut grows older, I'm sure I'll be doing a lot of bakin' and (fruit and milk) shakin' and ice cream and sandwich makin' once we have a kid.

For now, we have the best anniversary present we could ever give each other: the precious baby in my tummy. And more than any kitchen appliance (or any material thing, for that matter), what I really, really want is a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery and a healthy baby.


  1. Ate dea, check out the webpage of KitchenAid. They have an icecream maker attachment for the mixer. :) and I do agree with the brand of blender, it MUST be Oster. :)

    There is a Coleman store in Robinsons Galleria (basement) that showcases both Oster and KitchenAid products. :) been eyeing the glass mixing bowl and paddle with silicon scraper for my mixer. :)

    1. Hi Marielle! Is that the store sa basement level? I remember drooling over the items! You should get the ice cream attachment, yan ang pangarap ko for the mixer which I don't even own yet, hehe!
