Dear Baby,

Howdy, baby!

Our AC isn’t OK yet. It’s been a month already that we’re dealing with this problematic air-conditioning unit at home! It’s a staggering 28 degrees Celsius at home! Uhh, it’s really hot. So sorry, baby, we’re situated in a country that is freakin’ hot. The caretaker of our building isn’t mindful of his duty to fix the aircon. After our vacation next month, we’ll gonna transfer to a new flat.

Right now, we’re dealing with another problem – that of the transfer of your new yaya under our name/sponsorship. She just couldn’t be transferred to us. We’re looking for a local here to be her sponsor, and we’ll just pay the sponsor. Let’s pray that we find the right person soon.

We just came back from your yaya’s agency, and everyone wasn’t that supportive. The owner of the agency was shouting for no reason at all. The agency gave us a week (until Sunday, which means 4 working days from now) to finish the transfer. SIGH.

We’re hoping to get out of this country, your birthplace, at the soonest time possible.

Don’t worry, baby, everything will be fine. For as long as your new yaya is taking good care of you, there’s no problem with releasing too much money just to make her our legal maid. Glad that she’s cooking a variety of toddler recipes for you.

In 11 days, we’re traveling to the Philippines. I need to start packing tomorrow.

I also want to write today how brilliant you really are. Mommy was talking in Filipino (I forgot about my topic then) when you suddenly said, “happy”. WOW. I am happy that you’re happy, baby. :)

You also have this habit of closing the door when you’re about to sleep. It means you’re no longer interested in playing so you close the door. You really would sleep in our bed after closing the door. Haha. You’re such a brilliant, baby.

This is all for now.
