Wedding Place Cards For Michelle

Finally, I’m done with working on my sister-in-law’s wedding place cards. She really love the Disney Characters. Her fiance loves horror movies & books  so we decided on using “The Corpse Bride” as one of the images.

Please come & see an eclectic mixture of LA artists & their works. If anything else, the view from Barnsdall Art Park is just breathtaking. You could see the Hollywood Sign from the park & enjoy an afternoon picnic besides one of the outdoor sculptures. I hope to see you there! :)

Baby Steps Towards Parenthood

23 weeks into my pregnancy, I started enrolling myself & my hubby into “Babywise Education” in our preferred hospital. Since we’re first time parents, we practically enrolled in every seminar possible. There’s the Maternity Tour, Breastfeeding, Infant Safey & CPR, Babycare & Parenting, & Childbirth Preparation (Lamaze). I really don’t know what to expect but I learned that the classes filled up really early. Well, considering we’re having an increase in live births per year in the US according to the New York Times article, “2007 U.S. Births Break Baby Boom Record,” by Erik Eckholm. He said that there were about 4,317,000 births in 2007 which surpassed the 1957 figure at the height of the baby boom. I wonder if this trend will continue since US is currently having a recession.

We’d also started window shopping for necessities to our incoming little squirt. We registered at Target, BabiesRUs & Amazon. We went to the stores and I just realized there were a gazillion of parents shopping for their kids. I consider myself a veteran shopper but going to the Baby’s Department was like being Alice in Wonderland. So many choices! — it was fun & yet confusing.

My Top 10 Surprises During Pregnancy

What I know about going through pregnancy was based from what I’d observed from my family & friends. I never knew how much limited I know until I get pregnant — imagine my surprise. You get pregnant, you get morning sickness then your tummy grows big. All women talk about how painful it is going through labor. That’s it. That’s all I know. Ok. Of course, I learned something from my biology class — about the x & the y chromosomes stuff. But they never tell you about what a pregnant woman experience until you are pregnant.

EWP Studio Lab Project: The Marriage of Cruz & Chu

It was such a great experience for me participating in this show which was the culmination of the East West Player’s Studio Lab Project- The Marriage of Cruz & Chu: Our Big Fat Filipino-Chinese Wedding Banquet as part of the Arts Education program headed by Marilyn Tokuda. With the support of the Artistic Director Tim Dang & the Board of Directors, this project would not have been possible. Our Director & teacher, Leslie Iishi noted that audience support of the artists’ creativity is critical in nurturing talent and growth of the artist.
