Buy or Sell

Sunday, December 30, 2007

Buying or selling a home is quite taxing. I would rather hire the services of a real estate agent. They know the ins and outs when it comes to real estate properties. Plus the fact that I don't have the time going to this and that trying to fix the papers. Some people can make it hard for you especially once they know that you know nothing about purchasing or selling your real estate property. So if I were you, to make things easier and to have a smooth transition, hire the services of


Still Sick

I thought I was feeling well already because of the medication. I slept quite early last night, to give my body a much needed rest, so that I will be able to wake up recharged. I woke up at 7 in the morning, but could not even drag myself up. I decided just to stay home and not work anymore. I don't want to spend New Year in bed! Boo to that! I slept the whole time, waking up only just to have lunch and dinner. Well I did a 1 opportunity though but that was it. I was again sleepy, so I gave in. Waaahhh, now I can't sleep, I'm still a little feverish, cough and colds not improving. Josh came to my room and told me, "Mom, I prayed to God that you will not die." I was like what? Of course I'm not gonna die, it's just a simple fever, cough and colds, and nothing serious. He always tells that whenever I'm sick. He always prays that I will not die.

Why Pay More?

Are you one of those who availed of an auto financing loan when the rates were a little higher? Now do you want to have a lower interest rate? All you need to do is avail of an auto refinance loan. You can get to save $60 off your current car payment every month. In case you decide to avail of it, your first payment comes after 60 days from approval. Very timely indeed since we spent a lot to celebrate the holidays. I you want to lower your car payment and reduce your interest rate, just go to They will take care of finding the best rate, and best term for you and their refinancing service is all for free.


Sore Nose

Saturday, December 29, 2007

I have sore throat and a SORE NOSE (my nose has gotten bigger all the more, eeewwww!)! All from runny nose, I can't even breathe. I think I'm gonna have a flu, but I have to fight it. I have work tomorrow and I don't wanna miss it. I've taken 3 kinds of medicine already, biogesic for my fever, neozep for my colds and ventolin for my cough. I ate 2 whole kamias during dinner, to help with the itchiness. I'm supposed to gargle the juice extracted from it, but I just couldn't do it. I'm having valda pastilles now to ease the itch a little. I'll be sleeping in a while, I need to rest. Maybe the reason why I caught this flu is due to lack of sleep, plus loads and loads of work at home.

Day 10: Soda free =)


Fun in the Sun

Thursday, December 27, 2007

Here's another great travel destination. Another great way to spend a weekend or a summer vacation perhaps in an All Inclusive Mexico Vacations. Enjoy their unique beach resorts along the Riviera Maya. Gosh I've seen some pictures, and it's awesome! It makes me want to pack my bags and leave right away. I love the beach pretty much, and if given a choice I really love to live by the sea. By the way, I found a hotel that will give us an exceptional vacation experience. You know why? They make everything very convenient for their guests. They only serve gourmet food. They make sure that great vacation come with great food. And beat this, they have beach butlers who will take care of your needs while sunbathing. Woohoo, we will all feel like kings and queens!

Oh they also have this so called adult area which is perfect for a honeymoon destination. They have intimate hidden spots for lovers, a great way to surprise your partners with a romantic kiss. There's actually a lot more to explore. So let's all pack our bags and head to this great travel destination. Don't forget to pack a couple of swimwear and some diving gears, and let's have fun under the sun.


Meet Trixie

Meet Trixie! She's the one in the middle in her pink jammies. And she sleeps in the middle too ^_^, but somehow she always ends up on the floor =(. I got her on the 25th of December at Animaland. It's like build-a-bear in New York, the shop that the kids did not miss when we were there. They got each a bear and lots and lots of outfits. I only got Trixie one outfit though, but I'm planning to get her more. It's fun dressing her up. It's fun being child-like once in a while ^_^.

Almost Paradise

Wednesday, December 26, 2007

OMG! I found a perfect getaway, be it summer or winter. Gosh when I saw this on the internet, I was like, I want to go there someday. I actually heard my husband and his friend talk about this place while we were having dinner one time. She is a well travelled lady, and Italy is one of her favorite destination. She was describing to us this place in Italy but I couldn't quite get the picture. When I finally saw the pictures on the internet, my jaw dropped. It's some sort of paradise. Imagine waking up in the morning with the Dolomite Mountains as your backdrop. Yes, it can be seen from any view especially if you stay at Hotel Interski **** - Val Gardena Dolomites. The hotel is located in the middle of Val Gardena, and accessible to every activity you can think of, be it summer or winter. I think I'd love to go there during the summer first. I want to experience nature at its best by hiking or even biking. I'd love to discover the heart of the Dolomites. It's also nice to go there during winter time. I heard that it's every skiers dream to visit that place. This will be added to my wish list, and I hope I get it anytime soon.

Happy Christmas

Christmas lunch was spent over at my in-laws. I was not able to take photos because the friend of my SIL borrowed my camera. I don't think Ish took some photos too. We were just engrossed with the food prepared by my MIL.

Christmas dinner was spent at my Mom's. She prepared a sumptous dinner too. I totally forgot about ham and queso de bola for our own Christmas Eve Noche Buena. It's only when I saw Mom's Excellente Ham and Marca Pina Queso de Bola that I remembered, boo we didn't have that for Noche Buena. Oh never mind, I'll see to it that we're gonna have that on our table this New Year's Eve.

As usual, we went to watch Enteng Kabisote. For those of you who are familiar with this blog, you all know that it's part of our so called "Christmas" tradition. I dozed off a bit in the middle of the movie, probably I was too tired preparing for our Noche Buena. Everyone enjoyed the movie as usual. And yeah we have an added Christmas tradition. Me and Ish decided to get a new stuffed toy from Animaland every Christmas. I named my bear Trixie. She's cute, right now she's wearing her pink jammies.

I'd like to thank everyone who dropped by to greet me a Merry Christmas! I really appreciate it. I'm sorry if I haven't been to your blogs, work was neck deep.

Day 7: I had COKE =(


On With the Challenge

Monday, December 24, 2007

Day 6: Soda Free =)

Oh yes! It's kinda hard especially if you are addicted to it. I am struggling, yes, but then I have to do it. I think this is the longest time that I haven't had any soda. I'm having headaches lately, I don't know if this has something to do with being soda free, some kind of a withdrawal, but I don't think so. It's maybe due to the sudden change of temperature, yeah that's it. On with the CHALLENGE!


Adidas Golf

Sunday, December 23, 2007

There are a lot of brands, but Adidas has become a favorite among athletes. It's probably because of its superior quality when it comes to sports wear. I have a few Adidas items, and I'm really happy with it. It's durable, yet very affordable, no wonder they always run out of stock. I heard that their golf line called Adidas golf is doing very well in the market, and has become a favorite among golfers too. Well I'm not surprised at all, good quality always stays on top.



I went to Trinoma again to do some last minute shopping. Geez, seems like everyone is there. They even had to control people going inside the Crocs Store. Looks like Crocs is part of everyone's wishlist this Christmas.

Ish convinced me to buy this really humungous BEAR, it's gonna be her boarder just for tonight, uuumm hopefully. She really liked it a lot and was very happy when I bought it. Actually she wanted the biggest one, but I didn't enough moolah to buy it. Maybe next time Ish, or better yet maybe you can buy it with your Christmas moolah, bwaaaahhh!

Day 5: Soda Free =)

My Dream Pool

Saturday, December 22, 2007

Do you want your existing pool to look something like the one in the picture? It's really nice and modern, not like the old traditional pools we normally see. I can suggest a website that does just that. You can try az pool remodeling, they have been in the business for 29 years already, and that makes them the oldest pool company in Mesa, Arizona. They build like 200 to 300 pools in a year, and they can even customize it to fit your lifestyle. If only our lot can allow having a pool, then I'd like to have something like that. It's the kids' dream to have a pool at home.



I spent the whole afternoon baking cookies to be given away. I made 2, oatmeal raisin w/ choco chip, and chocolate chip. When Ish smelled the aroma of the cookies, she immediately went down to help. My son on the other hand was busy chatting with his friends. He came down too, but in a disguise of a food critic. Oh that's what he wants to become someday ^_^. He said the cookies were A OK, but liked the choco chip cookies more. I think I made about 150, that's why I fell asleep while taking a rest. Oh I ate a lot too for dinner, we had Chicken Curry and Fried Veggie Lumpia, yum!

Day 4: Soda Free =)


Christmas Break

It's the start of the Christmas Break for the kids. They had their Christmas Party yesterday. Oh they brought home a lot of gifts from classmates and friends. I asked them if they enjoyed the party, and they answered in unison, "YES"! They had some games which they enjoyed. Ish on the other hand got an award. She is the Best Singer in their class. She's happy with what she got. Hmmm, all those singing while taking a bath paid off huh ^_^.

Anyway, Ish asked if she can go to her classmate's house. We allowed her to go, but she has to be brought there by our driver. Originally she was to ride with her classmates, but we were not totally ok with that. She was kinda bargaining with us, but NO. I told her, if you wanna go, then Kuya (the driver) has to bring her, PERIOD. After some chilling out at her classmate's house, they proceeded to Trinoma. I immediately took a bath to accompany her, again we're not ok with just herself and her classmates going to the Mall. Times are hard, and she is too young to be by herself.


Store Your Wines Properly

Friday, December 21, 2007

Isn't that pretty? I really want to have that for Christmas. I know, you'd say the reason why I picked it is because of the swirls. Yeah I am totally in love with anything that's "swirly". I don't know why, but ever since I can remember, anything with swirls that I get hold on too, I really buy it. I just find it very appealing. I think that would make a beautiful piece of furniture in the house. Something that would make people's head turn. And besides it's really unique. I do have a Wine Rack at home, but it holds only 3 bottles. All the rest of the bottles are just lying in the store room. Obviously, I'm not storing my wines properly, but what can I do, as I've said I only have a rack that holds 3 bottles. So I guess it's about time that I get a new one ASAP. Especially now that it's the season of giving, a lot of our clients and friends give us wines as presents. This time I'm not gonna let it stand just like that. Wines are expensive and I don't want to put it to waste. I'd like to enjoy its real taste.


Goodbye Blisters!

At last, I found a website for Blister Treatment. This is quite a problem for me, I'm really fond of walking around and it has made my feet really really ugly because of the blisters. What an unsightly thing to look at. Sometimes I find it embarrassing to be wearing those stylish stilettos all because of the marks left from blisters. All I need to do now is put some vanishing cream to the marks/scars, after which I'll be putting these patches to all my favorite footwear. Oh now I remember, I can wear this really beautiful shoes that I bought a couple of years back, but have worn it like twice only. You know why? It's ill-fitting. I really get terrible blisters when I wear it. I can put it out now and start enjoying it.


New TV

Wee! We got a new tv, a 29 inch Samsung Slim. It will replace our old (read:15 year old JVC) tv in our bedroom. It's actually a free gift for being a very good client. Originally, it's only a 21-inch Samsung but we had it upgraded, with just a little cash out of our pockets. It will be delivered on Sunday because they didn't have any stock at their store. They have to order it direct from the Samsung Office. I think it's very saleable because of it's reasonable price. Oh I also got an Imarflex Juicer, which is part of the gift. Now I can make our fruit juices combined with vegetables. It's time to get healthy you know.

Day 3 - Soda free =)


Soda-Free Challenge

Thursday, December 20, 2007

I am challenging myself to be soda free. Supposedly it started yesterday, the 19th of December. But today while I was at Burger King, I totally forgot that I have this challenge. I was already half way drinking my Coke when I remembered that I'm not supposed to drink coke or any soda for that matter. Darn! I should have been on day 2 already. Do you know the reason why I want to go on this challenge? I want to have a flatter stomach. I've been dancing for almost 3 years already, but I still have a flabby stomach. So there!

Day 2: I had Coke =(


What's Your GreenIQ?

I haven't really put much thought on this, until I came upon this website. I was quite ashamed of myself that I have not been a very big help on saving our earth. I know I sound quite ridiculous, but come to think of it. It's not that hard really if we are all well informed. It's IGNORANCE that can make us idiots sometimes. That's why when I started browsing all the information shared on this website, I have regarded myself a complete idiot for not knowing. I was like, oh really?

Now do you want to know your GreenIQ? It can help you gauge your carbon emission and environmental footprint. By knowing your GreenIQ, you will become aware of many things, and eventually become a person who can make a lot of difference. Isn't that wonderful? We can all do our share to stop further destruction on our mother earth.

Find out more on how to go green by following the tips at You will be surprised to find out how easy it is to go green. Did you know that there are 5 ways to go green today? Do you know that you can also "green" your beauty routine? Now that it's Christmas time, you can also go "green" when it comes to wrapping your presents. There are many ways to go green, all we need to do is educate ourselves and follow all tips and suggestions on how to go green. Let's do our share.


Dream Big

This is what I have been waiting for. Many of us want to further our studies but we don't have the time to be in a class. I know this is one of the reasons that is keeping us from making one of our dreams come true. Well not anymore, since there are online phd programs being offered. I am just one step behind in fulfilling my dream. Honestly I have been thinking hard about this really, there are times that I feel discouraged thinking how to go about it. I know going to a regular class is quite impossible at this time, since I have a family to take care of. But now that everything is quite conveniently available over the internet, I have to do some serious thinking. How about you? Do you have plans to further your studies? Is there a promotion that you are not qualified just because you don't have a Master's Degree or a PhD perhaps? It's now time to consider online PhD, MBA, or MA programs. These programs are available at Capella University.


Hair Products

Look what I discovered! A website that has Hair Products for everyone. It's actually a skin, hair and body website. A one-stop website in other words. I like how they made their website, it's easy for everyone to hover. Take a look at their categories and you will know what I mean. It won't take you one hundred years just to find the specific product that you need. This will be an advantage for us consumers. Everything is laid down and it saves so much of our time. I also like their idea of putting best seller products in one category. It helps me decide because I know for a fact that for it to be put in the best seller category, it must be a superb product.

There's another thing that I like in this website. They just don't advertise products. They provide help by explaining what causes certain problems, say for you hair, then they try to explain the solution for it. They list down the problem solving products. If you have problems with your skin, hair and body, is the best site for you. I've bookmarked this site already, so that I will know of the products that will help me with my hair problem.


The Boy Who Turned 12

That's me and my darling boy. That was taken during his birthday, the 15th of December. We had a small dinner over at a chinese restaurant at Mall of Asia. We asked him what he wanted to have on this special day. All he wanted was Noodles with Soup. So I got him Beef and Wanton Noodles. At first he wanted some Crabs (that to him is good food), but later he changed his mind.

Anyway, what's with the number 12? The day he turned 12, he transformed into a typical teenager. I think he now takes interest in girls, talking about them almost everyday. I told him that I was happy with that (ahem), not that I wanna be a grandmother soon, but really. I'm as excited as him. I love listening to his stories.


Try the Magnetic Diet

Wednesday, December 19, 2007

Do you want to discover how to attain the body of your dreams? Simple, here's what you need to do. First, you need to control your cravings, second, you need to burn your fats, and lastly, you need to build muscles. Easier said than done right? But it is possible, even without popping in a diet pill, or sweating it out on different equipments, or even depriving yourself of food. All you need to do is follow these weight loss programs. Now is the time to put an end to the vicious cycle of losing weight only to gain it back again. Go on a Magnetic Diet.


No BodyGuard

My day started early despite the fact that I slept at three in the morning. I woke up at 8 to get ready to go and pay for our monthly taxes at the Bureau of Internal Revenue. I had to go to three areas particularly Caloocan, Pasay and Makati. I actually finished early and didn't encounter any hassles. Since I was done, I decided to go back to 168 Mall sans the bodyguard. I hope I was able to get everything I needed because it has already been three days of going back and forth. It's quite tiring, I see multitudes of people, all from different walks of life. Gone are the days that only those who can't really afford go to Divisoria, now it's getting to be everyone's favorite shopping paradaise.


How To Choose A Web Host

For those of you who are contemplating on getting your own domain, I advise you to be wise in your decision of picking a web host. I made this very big mistake when I had my own domain and I had to look for another reputable web host. This is really very important. You do not want to turn away your readers nor your advertisers because your web site is always down. That's what happened to me and I got really frustrated. So I suggest you look into this web site, They have listed a few guide to choosing the right web host. Not many of us really understand the basics of web hosting, that is why they have a quick start guide for us to be able to choose what suits our needs.

I decided to go again to 168 yesterday afternoon. I just don't understand why I can't buy everything in a day. Nope I'm not senile or anything, it's just that the list keeps on growing. When I asked permission from N to leave for 168, at the last minute he decided to go with me. We took the public transportation (it's so impossible these days to bring a vehicle). I was quite worried that he's going with me. He is not used to that place, much more with the crowds gathered. My motherly instincts started working and I was quite protective of him. I know this is funny, but I dunno really. I acted like I was his Mom, looking after him all the time. I was even worried that he'll get lost or something.

Tomorrow I'm planning to have a trip there once more. This time it's Josh's list that grew. He said he was not gonna give some presents to the girls, but when I checked his list, gosh it grew to 15. I still lack about 10 presents to give, so off to 168 Mall I go again. N is looking forward to go with me again.


Do I Really Need an Insurance?

Tuesday, December 18, 2007

After a lot of thinking, my husband has decided to get an insurance. He wants to guarantee his family of a solid financial future after he's gone. It was very timely indeed because he was able to Save Money on Insurance. The package that was offered to him was something he really can't resist. He was able to take advantage of the Family Insurance he has been planning to get with reduced premiums. Knowing my husband, at first he really wasn't for the idea of purchasing an insurance. But after browsing the insurance quotes provided by the Quoting Insurance Services, he was able to find the best insurance fit for his family. And why not, the quotes sent to him were already based on his requirements and ones best suited for his needs.


Mobile Phones

Monday, December 17, 2007

I just don't like it when the phone carriers lock the units they are giving out. It's like duh! Everyone knows that we can always find a way to have it unlocked. So instead of getting the free mobile phones they offer me, I usually say no and just opt for monthly rebates instead. I'd rather buy this kind of unlocked phone. Normally the ones those carriers are giving out are somewhat so-so. Just for the sake of giving that is.


Rings Around the Fingers

Sunday, December 16, 2007

Finding the right wedding rings can be just as important as finding the right engagement rings, but thanks to Danforth Diamond you can find both in the same place. I know that you thought finding the best diamonds to put into a ring for her was about as hard as it was going to get, but picking out the perfect wedding bands together is just as important, but if you follow my advice and check out Danforth Diamond, I think you'll be please, and quickly understand why they're an industry leader when it comes to helping people just like you find just what they're looking for.



I really feel so bad. I thought I was able to get a good deal. In fact I was really proud of myself when I was able to get a very good discount of an item I saw. Good thing there was only one left in their stock. I was even planning to get a few of it to give away on Christmas to some of my friends. If not I would be wailing by now. If I was to get 5 pcs of that item, then I'd lose 1000 pesos. That's a pretty good sum and I will not be able to forgive myself for being soooo stupid. Sometimes it really pays to do some window shopping first to be able to compare prices. But I don't have the luxury of time to do that. Oh well!


Car Accessories

Saturday, December 15, 2007

My husband has been dressing up our vehicles for quite sometime now. And I am mighty proud of how our vehicles look. His concern is not only to dress up our cars but also the benefits one can get by putting up all these accessories. Take for example the stainless steel fender trim he placed in our vehicles. He thought of putting it so that it can protect our cars from scratches brought about by mud, dirt, and gravel. He has placed a lot of accessories that he thinks will protect us in case we meet vehicular accidents. Come to think of it, he is right after all. So I don't complain whenever he tells me that we need this and that for our vehicles, after all he is just concerned with our safety.



Friday, December 14, 2007

I don't really mind whether it's reproduction or not. I'm talking about buying a painting to hang on our empty walls. Honestly, we don't have any paintings at home so our living room or any room for that matter really looks bare. Admit it, a house would look beautiful with paintings on the walls. So what if it's Art Reproductions, as long I have something to put in the dead spots of our house. And of course let's face it, I'm not one of the taipans to be able to buy one, lol. I can settle for a reproduction actually.

While I was browsing, I can't help but admire the Abstract Oil Paintings they have in their website. And my eyes got really big upon seeing their prices. The ones that I liked were on sale. It's like I don't have any reason this time not to own it. Aside from the fact that it's on sale, shipping is free. I can always have it shipped over at my sister's place in the United States. Oh before I forget, these are real hand painted oil paintings. With 70 percent off the gallery price, this is such a good buy. Go check it out too. They can even help you choose a perfect painting to match your decor.


I Still Do Monetize This Blog

I think not everybody knows that my account with one of the blog for money networks was suspended for 2 weeks. I've written in my other blog the reasons for the suspension. Now I guess I have to reinvent this blog, probably turn it to a food blog. I do have a Fashion Blog already, so I guess food blog it is! I hope you still continue patronizing this blog, and I hope you can get something from this hipChef wannabe.


Get the Best Lawyers

Thursday, December 13, 2007

Maybe you can bookmark this page right now, who knows you might need the services of a Baltimore car accident attorney someday. Their main goal is to protect the rights of injured people and that of their families. And their mission is to seek justice and get fair compensation for the injured including their families. With the 30 years that they've been in the business, they have received many professional accolades including the highest "AV" rating and Lawyer of the Year Award. For such as law firm to be given those distinguished Awards, it spells only one thing. They are one of the best if not the best.


I'm Changing my Mind

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

While having dinner awhile back, I was looking at our christmas tree from afar. I thought I was admiring it, but at the back of my mind, I was hoping that we can let it rest next year. We've had our tree for 4 years already, so with the ornaments. So I told my husband that I want a new tree next year. Originally I expressed my desire to have a real pine, but I think I'm changing my mind. I'm known to be setting up my tree either 1st week of November or 2nd week the latest. I don't think a real pine will last that long. I've seen it over at my in-laws. They've had it last November 20, and it's slowly drying up. I think I'll just get a fake tree, one that looks like a real fresh pine. Yep I've already seen one at Landmark in Trinoma.


Wedding Rings

Tuesday, December 11, 2007

I wish I was getting married again, of course to the same guy, lol. All because of the wedding rings I saw at Oh, I just remembered, he lost his wedding band. Hhmm, we need not marry again, I have every reason to choose for a new set of wedding bands. Anyway he has mentioned in the past that he wants to have have a band. Ok people, it's time to do a little browsing, I'll checkout again if the platinum band I saw at their website is still there. Tata for now!


Video Games

Sunday, December 09, 2007

Do you know what I do when I feel like everything's monotonous? I go to my son's room and play video games. Sometimes I play for two hours straight, and if it gets a little exciting, I go beyond the two hours. It relieves the stress and help me work on my reflex. I noticed that I have gotten a little slower, and it helps getting back my reflex. Not only that, I get to exercise, especially if I use his Nintendo Wii. I play boxing, and I get excited and all even if I'm the only one in the room. It pays to be silly sometimes, I don't really mind as long as I am enjoying myself.


Get Over your Addiction

If you are looking for a rehabilitation center that offers addiction treatment, look no more. Whether it's drug addiction or alcohol addiction, they have an effective treatment for you. They have a caring staff that will see to it that your needs will be taken cared of. They are one of the top rehabilitation centers in California. They boast of a more personalized service, therefore can be more focused to their residents. They know that there are different reasons why you opted for rehabilitation, that's why they don't have a standard rehabilitation treatment, but instead they have a treatment plan for each of their residents, based on their needs.


Belly Dancing

Saturday, December 08, 2007

We had the privilege of having Pacita Prasarn as guest instructor at our belly class. She is an instructor based in the US, and she's really good. She taught us different ways on how to do the shimmy. And I was like, huh! how did she do that? It's really amazing how she can move her body and how she can isolate her movements. It was like wow! I don't know if I got her techniques right as it was really quite foreign to me. Too bad she taught for about 30 minutes only. She actually had another class yesterday. But I was not able to attend, I had a prior commitment. She'll be here until the 20th I guess, I hope I can still attend the special class she'll be having.

Remember my post here? Yes oh yes! N's aunt from Singapore has finally bought it. She'll be arriving in a few days. I'm pretty excited already. I really feel the need to rejuvenate! As what my husband mentioned it's actually cheaper having to start it now than resort to any kind of cosmetic surgery later. Do you agree?

Thursday, December 06, 2007

Seems like for the last 4 weekends, we have been watching movies. Oh I love it when N treats us to movies. It’s a nice way to bond with my teenagers. We get to have dinner together at any restaurant we pick, we can play at timezone while waiting for the movie, or probably shop for a good 30 minutes. It makes us closer as a family. I wonder until when this will happen. And while we are still at it, all I have to do is enjoy the company of my teenagers. Yeah yeah teenager is stressed here. Gosh it’s frustrating to have teenagers, sometimes I don’t and I can’t understand how they think. I try to be cool as much as possible, but most of the time I can’t cope up. So all I do every night is pray for them. And the Lord has answered my prayers. The teachers said they’ve improved a lot in their attitude, which gave me a sigh of relief. All I can do now is really pray harder and harder, for I can’t really take full control of them anymore. Gone are the days when I can “terrorize” them to do some things. Oh I love motherhood, a never ending challenge!

For Your Silver Needs

Silver is being widely used now as an industrial commodity. As a result the world's demand for silver now exceeds annual production. Silver is widely used due to its unique properties. It is now used in numerous health care products because of its unique characteristic to prevent bacterial infections. It is also reported that more like 95 percent of the silver mined has already been consumed. But I have good news though. If you are in search of silver or would like to purchase for whatever reason, this should be the site to go to, All you need to do is get in touch with a Monex Account Representative and express your desire to have a silver investment. Don't worry about the pricing, they are reasonable, if not they would not be America's trusted name when it comes to silver bullion trading.

A Big Help

This is very timely since December is the busiest month for us. We have quite a number of clients for the months of December and January and I think this goes to true with other companies who are in the same business as ours. It is also during these months that everyone else is busy and sometimes cannot catch up with the work load. Good thing this company offers captioning service. This would really lighten the load of our staff and we would be able to deliver on time.


I'm a Happy Girl

It is now loading fast, I’m talking about my other site. It’s always up, again I’m talking about my other site. I’ve finally shifted to a new webhost. It costs a little higher than my old one, but I don’t mind really. It’s all worth it I tell yah. The support I get from them is totally awesome. They’ve patiently answered every questions I made, to the point that when I look back I can only laugh at myself coz some were really silly. Silly in the sense that I already know the answer but I was like pushing it just to get the assurance I was looking for. They were really very helpful and their tech support people are very easy to deal with. They are very courteous and professional. I tried sending them sms asking for something and they quickly reply back. That’s what you call customer service. If you wanna know which webhost I’m talking about, it’s So for those ones who are interested in having their own domain, I suggest that you consider them, I’m speaking based on experience.


An Alternative

I found a site most of us will benefit when we're old and grey. I know this is kinda off for now because of my age, but come to think of it, it's better to be prepared and think of our future. I don't wanna end up like a ping pong ball, going from one home to another. I'm not saying that my kids will do this in the future, but I'd better be prepared. I'm talking about staying in care homes. There are actually a lot of choices. For sure I'd pick one that has a five star hotel standards. I deserve it for working so hard. I will live like a queen, and I expect someone to provide me with the best living accommodation, meals, someone who can help me with my personal stuff, and help me manage my medications. I'd also pick a care home with a 24/7 nursing care, so that whenever I get sick, a medical staff can look after me right away.


I Will Stand by You

Thank you Shern’s Mom for giving me this award, although sometimes I don’t know if I stand true to it. There are times that I neglect or fail to read your entries, but yeah, I promise to stand by you all the time.

Now I’m giving this award to special people close to my heart who go out of their way to stand by me. I love you guys!

Elegant Furniture

Tuesday, December 04, 2007

This website is really good for newlyweds, especially for those ones who are moving in to their new homes. I highly recommend this website because of their simple but elegant Furniture. They have the finest collection of bed frame and sofa. Try to imagine this, A 4 post bed, with a cast iron canopy. Isn't it a beauty? This is just one of the furniture you will definitely go for. I'm pretty sure you will love all stuffs you see here, and you will also find their prices really affordable. There's a particular Bed I love, it has a beautiful Victorian touch, a bed really fit for a queen, and I deserve it, because I am the queen of this household.



This is a very interesting tag passed on to me by the Mother of QQ. She wants to know whether I still use a cane to discipline my teenagers.

I remember spanking my kids when they were still young. It’s either using the slippers, a belt or my bare hand. It was mostly my hand that I used though. Nope, I didn’t have second thoughts of using the “rod” especially if they don’t obey orders and rules in the house. Of course I will have to talk to them first and warn them, and if they ignore me, that’s the time I “hit” them. But now that they’ve blossomed into teenagers, it’s pretty hard. All I do is talk to them and if I get frustrated, I shout/scream! After which I ground them for a day, depending on what they did wrong. When my son does something wrong, I keep all his “toys” (laptop, gamecube, ps, ps1, ps2, psp, nintendo wii, nintendo ds and gameboy). As for my daughter I think I will confiscate her cellphone and iPod. In other words, I will take away their “life”.

Now I am asked to tag 5 more and include my answer in the list below.

1. Miche does not spare the rod.
2. Chinnee still spare the rod at this moment.
3. HiPnCooLMoMMa Can’t use the rod at this point

Let me hear how other moms discipline their kids:

Job Offers

Monday, December 03, 2007

Hear me people! This is a great opportunity for someone looking for a job overseas. This company is offering accountancy jobs abroad. Yeah really, I'm not kidding. Go check it out and find that it's for real. This kind of opportunity is not around all the time, and while there is an offer, why not take advantage of it. Don't waste the opportunities waiting for you!

The newest arrival in the financial services recruitment scene,, has achieved three important goals in its second month of operation. Firstly the company has achieved a number one ranking on Yahoo for its key search term ‘accountancy jobs abroad’ which is unprecedented in such a short space of time. Secondly the company has signed up its first five employers to the site including two ‘Big Four’ Accountancy firms in Bermuda. Two leading captive management firms again mainly present in Bermuda, but also with opportunities in Cayman, the US, Barbados, and Ireland. Thirdly and finally the company was a headline article in one of Bermuda’s leading newspaper’s business section. Namely the Bermuda Sun. The article entitled “Job Site Aims to Fill Accounting Skills Gap” outlined the company’s aim to provide flexible recruitment solutions to employers however as the company is totally web-based this will be achieved through competitive commission rates.

No Offense Meant

“No offense meant for Moms”, he said. He was referring to mothers who did rice porridge for the first time but didn’t quite get it. Lately my son has been eating chicken arroz caldo (rice porridge) in school. He requested me to cook my version of rice porridge. Well it’s not actually my own version but that of the internet and recipe book. I too did not have an idea on how to make a rice porridge although my Mom has been feeding us with that when we were still young. I searched and searched and found one in the internet and incorporated it with the one in the recipe book. They all loved it!

Ingredients: (Rice Porridge w/ Chicken)

10 pcs. chicken (drumstick)
7 cups chicken stock
1 1/2 cups uncooked rice
garlic (finely minced)
ginger (match sized)
knorr chicken cube
olive oil
patis (fish sauce)
black pepper

Saute ginger, onion and garlic in olive oil and season with black pepper. Include chicken cube (I didn’t have enough chicken stock) and patis (fish sauce). Put the chicken and cook until it’s half done. Set aside the chicken. Put the uncooked rice and mix it with the flavor coming from the ginger, onion and garlic. Pour chicken stock and put back the chicken. Wait til rice softens stirring occasionally. Add more patis according to taste.

**I forgot to take a pic of my rice porridge, I was excited to let the family taste ^_^**


My Precious Car

Sunday, December 02, 2007

Honestly I am the first one to despise and eventually laugh whenever I see cars with covers. I even started a private joke among my friends, saying something like, the car won't catch a cold because it's covered all over. Little did I know that these car covers are actually very helpful. It can protect our cars from dust, scratches uv rays from the sun, fading, and even theft. I know I'm being stupid, but hey I learned my lesson. Quite sad though, because I had to wait for something to happen. I am quite fond of parking my car outside the house, and at that time there was a construction of a building going on. My car was covered with dust, and guess what? There was a little kid who turned my car into a blackboard and started writing. And what do you know? I was like grrrr! From then on I started putting Weathershield Car Cover. I actually like this one for a number of reasons. It's water resistant, it dries quickly, UV Resistant, dust proof and best of all it packs small and light. I can bring it anywhere with me. How about you? Do you cover your cars?


In The Process

Thursday, November 29, 2007

If you noticed, there's not much activity happening over at my dot com. I'm in the process of shifting to another webhost. I'm no longer happy with my existing one, since it's been down a lot lately. Never mind that I paid my hosting with them until January of next year.

Now I'm looking forward to my new webhost. Their tech support guy Marlon is really a great help. I asked for assistance in the transfer since I am pretty clueless on how to do it. He was able to back up everything and my dot com is working fine over at a temporary site. Nothing was erased thank God. He didn't give me a full assurance that nothing will be erased but he said he'll try his best and he did! Thanks Marlon. Now I'm just waiting for the transfer for me to start writing again there. He advised me not to have any writing activity until the effect of the transfer. I hope it won't take that long ^_^


I Am A Smart Shopper

Oh how I love coupon codes especially now that I'm starting to shop for the holidays. As much as possible I try to get all the discounts being offered since it's no joke to be spending on gifts to be given to loved ones and friends.

Browse on all your favorite brands that offer coupons and discounts. It's about time to be a smart shopper!


Early Christmas Present

I just accompanied N to the mall this afternoon to buy a cellphone. I’ve been eyeing this unit (Motorolla V3i) since Saturday when I accompanied a friend also to scout for a new unit. We were supposed to buy it on the 30th, but since I was already at the mall today, I decided to buy it instead. When I was about to pay for it, N said that he’ll get it for me and that would be his early christmas present. Darn! Had I known, I should have chosen the Motorolla V8 instead…lol. I’m happy with my latest toy, nah it’s not expensive and I got it at a really good deal. It’s sleek and a challenge too, it’s totally different from the 2 units that I use. Hhhmmm, it’s a matter of getting used to the new navigation, I’m not too old to learn, but it’s mentally challenging, haha, just kidding!


Book Online

Ever since I found out that getting Hotel Reservations online is a lot cheaper, every time we travel I purchase everything online. I buy our tickets, book our accommodations and even hotel transfers online. It's where I look for vacation packages too. I've tried doing all these and there's only one thing I can say, I will never fall in line at ticketing offices. It does not only allow me to save on money, but my precious time too. I do not need to go out and waste on gas anymore, I can always do it right at the comfort of my home.

Best Mortgage Website

Here's a website that will search for mortgages and remortgages for you with just a short application form to be filled up. It's best to go to only one site that lets you compare right there without going to different websites which is quite tiring. They will provide you with a number of lenders to choose from and all you need to do is compare whatever suits your needs. They've always given their satisfied clients the best ever possible choices of cheap mortgages. It's nice that someone can do the searching for you, it lets you save time and effort, plus the fact that they are the authority when it comes to mortgages.


Christmas Spirit

Oh yes! I’m finally done with the tree. I am quite late in setting it up, I was waiting for my daughter Ish to help me put the trimmings. I don’t know why we haven’t done in in the past weekends, aaahh we were always out and by the time we got home we were dead tired already. So one afternoon, I took the liberty to decorate the tree with the help of my “angels”. I actually find the trimmings boring already since I’ve had it for the last 4 years I think. Hopefully next year, I will be able to change the theme and probably change my tree too. Well let’s see ^_^


Plasma TV Stands

Tuesday, November 27, 2007

These are the kinds of plasma tv stands I would put in our home theater in case we decide to go on with our project early next year. I particularly like the Avalon TV Wall, I love the rich brown finish, it's very elegant and the features are really good. Yeah it's no ordinary console, you won't believe what it does with just a touch of a button. Go see it if you want to know what I'm talking about. And that is the ultimate console for me.


Please HELP!

Monday, November 26, 2007

Waaaaaahhhhh! I need to put something on my sidebar but I can’t. I can’t find the update button. All I see is “if files were writable then you can edit it”. Oly Guacamole, what’s happening? Please tell me! I did everything from editing the index.php but it did not change. I’m quite frustrated already! I just updated my theme like 3 days ago and it was working fine, now its waaaaahhhhhh! I need your help badly please. Whoever can shed light on this, I’d be very happy and thankful. Please don’t play tricks on me, I’ve been working hard you know, and I don’t have any “brains” left to try and figure out what is wrong!


Painting Reproductions of Famous Artists

Saturday, November 24, 2007

Honestly it's the first time I've heard of Gustav Klimt. Pardon my ignorance but it's just that I am not into painters and their famous paintings really. Is this telling me that I should be a little "educated" when it comes to that aspect? Well not a bad idea, after all I was in awe when I saw some of Klimt Paintings. For those who have not heard of him, according to wiki Gustav Klimt is an Austrian painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Seccession Gallery. He was born in 1862 and died in 1918. His works include painting, murals and sketches, and his primary subject was the female body.

I pretty much liked him in his "golden phase". He used gold colors in his painting. He brought life to his paintings using the vibrant gold color. Did you know that the portrait Adele Bloch-Bauer he made sold at $135 million? This is the reported highest price ever paid for a piece of art. His famous contributions include The Kiss, Fulfillment, and Expectation.

So how about owning a reproduction of his paintings? If you ask me, I would love to have one. And do you know where you can get it at a reasonable and affordable price? is an online gallery of hand painted oil painting reproductions. You can find a reproduction of almost all famous painters there. Check out the site now.



Please forgive me if I do a little bragging ^_^ I know most of us already get auto approval, but I’m just happy that even for an hour, all posts are approved. Why only for an hour you ask? Well I just submitted 2 paid posts and it seems the advertisers want to check personally each individual post the posties do for them. Well not that I don’t do my best anymore, I do, I really do! I’m not one who thinks this way “oh never mind, anyway my posts are auto approved I will not do good anymore.” Geez, what am I trying to say! All I want is to share with you my happiness seeing in my dashboard for once, I don’t have pending posts. That’s it ^_^

Sadness in our Hearts

We were at work when we found out that one of our clients died a tragic death. We couldn’t believe it, he has just been to our house a week ago to submit the photos they chose for the wedding album. This client of ours is close to our hearts already, he’s been a good friend to N. He does not consider us as somebody different but has offered us his friendship. When he was here last week, he kept on embracing N, and he even told a friend who was with him to take care of N. We did not see it as premonition, but come to think of it, it was. The wife said that he has been calling friends whom he has not talked with in the last two weeks, but nobody thought that he was leaving us physically already. It’s really sad, they have not even celebrated their first year anniversary, and he has not enjoyed fully being a dad to a month old baby girl. That’s why my heart bleeds. I could not help but cry when we went to the wake. miss your laughter! We will surely miss your laughter!

This product is quite in demand in the United States and elsewhere because a lot of people have testified that it actually helped them lose weight. Just be careful thought when buying hoodia. Read the site's buying guide.


Beautiful Blinds for your Homes

Thursday, November 22, 2007

Look at all these fabulous blinds. These are the kind of blinds I want to see hanging on my windows. I have a fondness for roman blinds nowadays. I find it elegant and neat. It would be a nice accent in the living room, a roman blind is a beauty itself. One of my favorites is the Oak Bamboo Wood Roman Blind, it's one of a kind and it would make a beautiful accent in our bedroom. It would go well with the color of our room. And would you believe it's on sale? Aside from the fact that it's reasonably priced, it still has a discount. How lucky can we get. Another favorite of mine is the green hampshire roman blinds. It's like it was really made for my daughter's bedroom. It's cool and it would match the personality of my daughter. I know she'd be happy if I will install one in her bedroom.

When you go to this website, you would see other designs of curtains and different accessories too. Their ready made curtains are a beauty also. I love the design of the fabrics they use. I also love the fact that it's quick and easy to hang, and best of all it's priced reasonably.



All I can say is WOW! What a nice way to start the week, although this is the second day already ^_^ . I am flattered or should I be? As you all know, the one who gave me these awards is my cousin. Nah, she does not play favorites and she is not a liar, hehe. Thank you Chairman!

Now lemme see… ah I need to give these awards to the following:
KC - the pregnant sexy and beautiful MOMMA.
Leena - she always thinks she’s FAT but she’s not really. I find her pretty and sexy.
Sachiko - wow is all I can say, she’s very pretty and sexy.
Jet - gosh this woman is vavavoom!


Garage Floor Tile

Wednesday, November 21, 2007

I know a lot of people who take for granted this part of the house. They're like, "Oh never mind, it's just the garage anyway." I don't blame them really, there must be some reason for them to think that way. Maybe they went over their budget. When we built our house, everything was taken into consideration. We wanted to make our garage beautiful or if not let's just say presentable. This is the part of our house which visitors see first. It had the same amount of planning as the other parts of the house. One major decision that has to be made is garage floors. The floor area is quite huge, so we had to take that into consideration. Safety is our concern too, since carwash will be done in the garage. I don't want accidents happening you know. But I guess we made the right choice, I am happy with the outcome of our garage. For those of you who are in need of garage floors, is the place for you.


I've Got A Friend!

It’s so nice to know that a blogger who has not seen you personally consider you as one of their friends. I’m so blessed to have a friend in you too, Thess and Lizeth .

KC is sooo special to me, and I can always tell her “I’ve got a friend in you!” I hope to get to see and finally meet her in person come 2008. Hope their plans of visiting the Philippines will push thru. I’m already excited Ks!


A Parenting Website

Tuesday, November 20, 2007

This is a cool parenting website I came across the other day. I really like this site because it contains real reviews of baby products and services, or should I say anything pertaining to our kids by real parents. Here, they share what they think about the product, what's good and what's not. This will save you especially for first time parents from calling friends thousands of miles away. Instead of calling them, you can just visit this website, and with about 32,000 listings and 120,000 real reviews, I'm sure you will be able to find out the answers to your questions and a lot more. This website is really cool because they provide a forum where parents can exchange tips, and provide advice. These are first hand information from parents, meaning they have tried the products and services. I like reading about reviews, it saves me money because more or less I already have an idea on what to get my kids.


Record Breaking!

Haha! I did like 9 sponsored posts on November 17, beat that! Nah just kidding ^_^ I really chose to do it all in one day, because I will be absent from the world wide web the following day (Nov. 18). I don’t want to stress out myself come Monday beating the dead line. I wanna start my week right, a very relaxing one. How about you? How many have you done in a day? After doing all the posts, I hit the sack early, as I needed all the energy to carry my heavy equipment.


Leather Lingerie

Leather Lingerie, anyone? I know what you're thinking! But before you give me a chuckle, come on you gotta check out this leather lingerie first. It's pretty and sexy and one of a kind. I give thumbs up to whoever thought of this. The way it's being combined with laces and all is just awesome. This is the newest way to wear sexy lingerie, come on try it!


Happy Birthday Sweet

Saturday, November 17, 2007

Today N is celebrating his 42nd birthday. And he got a touching letter from his daughter Ish.

To My Dearest Daddy,

1st of all, Happy Birthday! Thank you for all the things you’ve done for me: for bringing me to this world, for raising me to be what I am now, for teaching me a lot of good things and for being a good father. I know that I hardly show affection w/ hugs and kisses, but it is my pride and joy to tell you how much I love you and Mommy. I guess I am in the phase where we, somewhat get embarrassed by showing affection to our parents, even at home. Once again, Happy Birthday & I love you!

“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” - Gal. 6:2

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. Remember the Lord in everything you do, and He will show you the way.” - Prov. 3:5,6

Your Daughter,


He was really excited with the letter he got, and I was excited too. We miss the days that Ish writes us letters. I remember when she first started to learn how to read and write (age 5), she had been writing us short letters. Today she is in school attending a weekend camp but we will fetch her later tonight to celebrate.

No matter how her Dad would deny it, he was teary eyed while reading the letter. I was like how come I didn’t get a letter on my birthday (haha jealous Mom), and N was like, “how come I didn’t get a birthday present?” Haha, this is really funny ^_^

Well I on my part just made a short note, placed it in a red envelope (ang pao) with $ inside, after all I am now a $ earner, bwaaaahhh!


Best Cash Back Credit Cards

We have become intelligent consumers, do you agree? In the past I was not really concern about a lot of things. It was always at the back of my mind, huh why bother applying for all those cards that offer cash back or something. But now I have become aware that I can get a lot of savings by taking advantage of such offers. Like right now, the credit card I chose among the rest was the one that offers cash back or one that lets me earn money even while spending. Isn't that great? You can do that too by comparing card offers the Best Cash Back Credit Cards. At, you can make a comparison which credit card gives you the most cash back whenever you make a purchase using a credit card. It's up to you to decide.



Can she be strict? She placed a warning post it on the mirror. Apparently the helper cleaning her room did something with her headbands. I love how my darling doll turned out to be. Now she takes care of her things. She can even fix her own room now. She used to be soooo disorganized, but now that she’s a little older, she wants everything neat. You will seldom find clutters in her bedroom. Even her desk is spic and span. I wonder who she’s like…AHEM!


Ellipticals on Sale

How I wish I had these ellipticals at home. So when I miss belly dancing class or if I'm just too tired riding the bike, I have an alternative. We need to exercise everyday to keep us healthy and strong, of course coupled with a healthy diet and healthy lifestyle. How about you? Do you get to exercise everyday? If not then consider getting this elliptical, so you can exercise in your own homes without having to go to the gym. Check out, they have a big sale going on. Don't miss it.



This is what my darling doll Ish ordered when I went to 168 Mall. She wanted some headbands in metallic colors. “Mom buy me every metallic headband that you see. I got each for 25 pesos ($.60) only, yay what a bargain. Now she goes to school wearing it and she can get to change colors everyday. She has quite a collection already, I don’t know why shes fond of those. Ah girls! They love all those girlie stuffs, if only she can get a hand on all those girlie stuffs she finds in the mall, then her room will be full of it.


Reputable Movers

I've read a lot of horror stories about movers being hired by families when they relocate to another place. This is such a difficult task especially when it comes to hiring movers. Many of us wish that we hired the right company and not those fly by night movers. Yes, there are fly by night companies, the ones that are here today but gone tomorrow, and that includes your belongings too. Sad isn't it? So please be very careful when hiring movers.

Service Network has set up a list of Moving Relocation Services you can avail of. The movers in their network have to be licensed and insured to be able to be included in their list. Now you can be assured that the movers you hired from Service Network are the reliable and reputable ones. And here's good news for you. Service Network has pre-negotiated with their movers a guaranteed discount of up to 65 percent. Make your move less stressful by choosing Service Network.

Beef Teppanyaki

I made this recipe by again copying from a japanese restaurant where we ate with my daughter Ish after our belly dancing class. Well it said it was Beef Teppanyaki, so I’ll call it beef teppanyaki too ^_^. The ingredients are not listed this time, but according to my taste buds here it is:


beef sirloin cut into small cubes
bean sprout
carrots (cut into matchstick size)
green bell pepper (cut into squares)
onion (sliced in rings)
garlic (minced)
kikkoman soy sauce
black pepper
red wine (i just added this for that certain kick)
knorr liquid seasoning
olive oil


Marinate the beef in soy sauce, black pepper, sugar and red wine at least an hour before you pan fry. Put olive oil in pan only once so the beef will not stick, after which you can pan fry beef right away. I do it in portions so it will not get overcooked. Meat gets hard once you over cook it. I cook it medium well, that’s about 2 minutes each side.

In a another pan, saute the onion and garlic followed by carrots, green bell pepper and finally the bean sprouts. Season with salt and pepper, and if you wish you can add this mixture, kikkoman soy and sugar.

That’s it. It’s actually very simple to cook especially if you’re in a hurry. Btw, Ish decided to use this recipe for her Home Economics class tomorrow. I’ll help her with the marinade later when she arrives from school.

System Error

Friday, November 16, 2007

Hay naku! Talaga naman! Sabi dahil daw sa system error nila kaya na reject ang posts ko. Oo dalawang post. Dalawang posts na pinaghirapan kong gawin. Di biro ang umupo at magsulat noh.

Tapos ganun ganun nalang? Ni-reject nila yung posts dahil sa sarili nilang pagkakamali, tapos ang sagot lang sayo is sorry for the inconvenience? Tama yun? Hay buhay nga naman! Patawarin nyo na ako, first time ko kasi ma-reject dito sa kumpanyang eto, or totally 1st time ma reject na di pede mag resubmit. Ang daya di ba?

Have you tried eating at Razon’s here in Manila? N and I are avid fans of Razon’s Halo-Halo and Pancit Luglog. I was really fine and contented eating at Razon’s MOA, Greenhills and Banawe Branches until I tried Razon’s in San Fernando, Pampanga. Can you see the difference? The serving here in Manila is not as heaping, and to think they say that there’s not much difference. Big difference I tell you! Just look at the pancit luglog, tell me, whenever you eat at Razon’s in Manila, do they put as much chicharon (pork rind)? Do you see the same amount of leche flan in your halo-halo?


Smoothie Recipes

We all know that eating fruit is extremely beneficial to our health and well-being. However, finding the time to eat enough fruit per day can be difficult due to busy lifestyles. I have found a site that has hundreds of smoothie recipes to help with this. Give it a try.

My favorite recipes are the strawberry smoothies.

This site is also looking for submissions for all fruit smoothies.


Mother-Daughter Bonding

This is what we do every night before Ish goes to bed. In between watching TV, I blow dry her hair. She likes to take a bath at night so she won’t wake up early in the mornings just to get ready for school. And she said something like, “I don’t want to bother you in the mornings Mom, to comb my hair.” Yes, I used to do that every morning before she goes to school. She wants me to style her hair, nah make that fix her hair. She claims that she does not know how to put the clip properly. She claims too that whenever I’m the one putting the clip, her hair stays in place. I’m happy with our bonding time. If my darling boy goes for a massage, then my darling girl goes for a blow dry. Mommy’s special touch is still there, it’s one way of showing my love for my kids.

I know that there are lots of options to get flowers online, but for me, Vogue Flowers is the only place I can imagine going to when I want the best quality flowers delivered on time.


Lap Band Surgery

Would you like to know another procedure for losing weight? Ok, let me introduce you to lap band surgery. This is one of the safest weight loss solution nowadays. Journey Lite has a team of experienced bariatric surgeons and healthcare professionals who specialize in Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding. This procedure involves insertion of inflatable adjustable gastric band around the upper portion of the stomach. This allows you to feel full and satisfied, thus eating less and you begin to lose the excess weight. It is the least invasive surgery procedure since there is no need to reroute, cut or staple your intestines. It is adjustable and completely reversible in case you decide that you don't need it anymore. This procedure can be done in an outpatient setting, meaning you get to go home after the surgery. Recovery period is also short. If you want to lose weight and bring back the confidence you once had, try lap band surgery.

Double Ouch!

Today we went to the mall to have our monthly facial. Yipee, it’s now a regular thing. The same lady did my face, and I really like her a lot. She has a good disposition and a happy aura. Imagine getting a stressout lady, haha, then it’s gonna be my last facial ^_^. Until now I still can’t bear the pain when she starts pricking, but it is compensated by the facial massage she gives me, gosh it’s heavenly, I feel more relax than ever. I had my humungous pimple injected too. This is the first time that I had this, yes it’s really big and kinda swollen. I hope it will be gone by tomorrow, if not I’m gonna have it injected again.


Dress Up Your Cars

Wednesday, November 14, 2007

Have you thought of dressing up your cars? When I still had my old car, a Nissan Altima four years ago, I placed car spoilers to make it all beautiful. And it sure turned a lot of heads. I remember people coming to me whenever I'm parked asking what model of car I drive. Actually all the cars we own are dressed up. My husband is so much into it and he does not like our cars to look stock. The moment we drive it home from the car dealers, first stop would be going for accessories to make the car a real beauty. We even join car show competitions and we always get an award. Whenever you see our cars, you would know that it's owned by the V family because of its distinct look.
