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 ^_^

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!

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.


Banking Needs

How do you like the service being rendered by your bank now? Are you a satisfied client? Do you get perks like free checks, free check safe keeping and free wire transfers? If not, then you should go for this checking account which offers all those I've mentioned. With this checking account, you can access your money with your own Debit MasterCard at their free ATMs strategically located.


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.

Thursday, November 15, 2007

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.


Sent Fresh Every Time

Ok, I know that when you send flowers from most places you’re never really sure what you're going to get, but with Vogue Flowers you can be sure that you’re getting fresh flowers that will be delivered on time and looking spectacular. 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.

Their prices are competitive and their customer service can't be beat.


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.


Designer Sunglasses

Do you want me to tell you where you could buy Dior Sunglasses at a discounted price? Haha, I know you're excited already to find out. Ok, I won't keep you excited. is the website where you can find not only Dior but Prada, Armani, Arnette and Gucci to name a few. Gosh if you happen to see the price range, you'll be amazed. Nope, the styles are not outdated at all. Go see for yourself so you will know what I am talking about. What's nice about this store is they do international shipping. I have not been too lucky when it comes to items I like in other online stores because of the limitations in shipping. But at, that is not a problem. Oh by the way, they also offer popular designer brands of watches at prices you cannot resist. Haha, I'm so lucky I was able to stumble upon this website. I have already bookmarked the site so it will just be a click away in case I decide to change my sunglasses or watch to a newer model.

Shopping for Furniture

Tuesday, November 13, 2007

I really like this furniture store a lot! I've been eyeing on their sofas ever since I came across this website some months back. I hope they ship outside the US, but as it is they don't. Well I can recommend it to my sister who has just moved to her new place. I know she needs some Furniture, and this is the best site for her. All she needs to do is look for this Furniture Online. I already have a few in mind which I'd like her to have. Knowing my sister, she'd always consult me and my other sisters regarding a major purchase.


Tired but Happy

I just got back from Subic. Yes, same venue (The Lighthouse) for a pre-nuptial shoot. Nope I didn’t not actually work but N wanted me to tag along, so I did. Well I have another agenda why I came too. I wanted to buy some stuffs at the nearby duty free shops. We didn’t have time shop the last time we were there because of work. And today I thought we won’t make it again to the shops. We got to Subic at around 2:20 and N was in a hurry to go straight to the venue. I was kinda pissed off because part of the reason I joined them was to go and buy stuffs in Duty Free. Good thing it rained a bit and we didn’t have any other choice but to pack up. Well they’ve had enough shots I guess, so we called it a day. We made it to Royal Duty Free and I was able to pick up some stuffs, weeeeee! I’m now happy!


Wedding Planning Site

Planning a wedding can be a lot of fun and at the same time it can be stressful too. I've seen a lot of couples enjoy, but some end up fighting probably because of the stress it brings. It's pretty hard to come up with something, especially if you know nothing much about it. So to get you started, here's a Wedding Website which will help you make your wedding preparations smooth sailing. has been helping grooms and brides since 1997. It is the most comprehensive wedding site online, which has interactive planning tools. You see you need not stress out yourselves really, it's a matter of finding somebody to help you out with the preparations. This website gives you ideas on planning the perfect wedding. It has a complete guide which allows you to do it even without hiring the services of a wedding planner. Remember, it's just a few clicks away.


Sad...But Why?

We went to watch The Game Plan last night in the movie house. Yes we enjoyed the movie so much, but it could have been better is all four of us watched. But as it is, my darling boy Josh didn’t like to come with us. I don’t like to force him because I don’t want to create friction between the two of us, neither do his dad. I did a lot of convincing for him to join us, but it was all in vain. He wants to be left at home, it seems that this online gaming is pretty much taking so much of his time. I miss the time that the kids can tag along wherever we were going. I miss the time that they will not allow us to leave without them in tow. My oh my how time flies. Now they choose their own activities. FYI, I do require them to come with us if it is necessary, which I don’t accept no for an answer.


Take Advantage of the Opportunity

That is what I did when opps were overflowing. I really took advantage of it because I know it won’t last long. And I was right. Even if my b**t and back hurt a lot from too much sitting, I didn’t mind it. All I was concerned about at that time was to take advantage of the allowed 3 posts per blog. I was even consistent for some 5 days in the top earner, sometimes making it to the number 1 spot. But everything is all gone now. The pr 5 is now down to pr3. Looks like someone is playing tricks on us huh. I really don’t know how this pr thingy works. Can you please tell me the difference between putting www after the http and without the www. This is really funny, it’s like they give different pr rank depending if you put www after the http:// or not. I don’t get it and it gives me a headache trying to figure out if there’s really a difference. Can you please shed light on this? Btw, this is what PPP uses to check our page ranks,


Perfect Hideaway!

I've heard so much about Mexico, in fact I have a friend who has lived there for quite sometime. I have a few friends too who have spent their vacation in Mexico, and they didn't like to leave the place because to them it was paradise. Truly they enjoyed their Mexico Vacations. Would you also want to have your vacation in Mexico? I know of a website that will make your Mexico stay a dream come true. can make your vacation an exceptional experience. If you need some relaxing and bonding time with your husbands or with your loved ones, has an all-inclusive vacation location in Riviera Maya, where there are endless possibilities. Stroll down the white sand beach, have a massage under the palm trees, go scuba diving or snorkelling, explore the hidden spots perfect for stealing a kiss or a sweet embrace, or just stroll around Playa del Carmen. It's perfect right? And this is the way to spend vacations since it's not everyday that we can take time off from our hectic schedules.


Happy Blogging From Me

I’d like to thank Leena for this blogging wish. Happy Blogging to you too.

I see how these people love blogging a lot and I want to wish them too!

I Smell Christmas!

Sunday, November 11, 2007

Yeah you can smell Christmas in the air at home. We started putting up the tree which took the whole day. My light requirement for the tree is quite difficult and there’s only one person who can master it. It’s the yaya (nanny) of my son Josh. She’s an expert I tell you. It’s really beautiful when it’s lighted. I might put the trimmings tomorrow if I have extra time. But on second thought, I think I need to wait for Saturday so that my darling girl can help me.


Furniture for the Little One

Saturday, November 10, 2007

I have friends who are due to give birth in the next couple of months, so I want to show them some baby stuffs that are really pretty. Now I remember the furniture I bought for my kids which are similar to thisbaby furniture. Of course we want the best for our baby, and we want to make sure that they are surrounded by beautiful things.

Take for example these awesome baby cribs. You do not really need to decorate the room as much because the crib itself makes the room beautiful already. Sometimes it's actually in the choice of furniture that makes the room really cozy and pretty. Now my friends, have you planned on what furniture you want for the baby? It's more convenient to buy now, at least you can still look around and make the right choice.


The Wallet Tag

I’d like to thank Kitty for this taggie. Hey Kit, our wallets have similar material ^_^ and it looks quite the same though.

I remember buying this wallet during my trip to Singapore in 2004 and I’ve been using it since then, well almost. I do change wallets every now and then, but this seems to be longest I’ve been using. There’s not much I put inside, since I have a separate card holder. And I don’t think I get to hold it everytime I go out, since I put my money (pesos) in the pockets of my bag. I dunno but it’s sort of a security blanket or anything. I just feel right when it’s in my bag ^_^.

What’s inside?

1. Picture of me and N
2. Picture of my 2 kids
3. Dollar Bills
4. Hong Kong Bills
5. Calling Cards

I’d like to see your wallets and what’s inside of it, please? Chairman Vanidosa, KC, Francine, and Lizeth


Connection Lost

Grrrrr! Grrrrr! I was in the middle of submitting a paid post entry when suddenly my connection goes pppppffffftttt! It sucks big time, it was worth $15. I blamed N for using the telephone, poor him. Fact is there was really a problem with our internet provider. I was hard on him I admit, I was frowning and was not talking to him right because of the missed chance. Good thing N is really patient with me. Funny how we can react to situations like this. But let’s face it, it’s not often that you see a $15 offer, right?

Now my connection is back, and I heard N talking to himself saying something like “Oh I need to behave and just keep quiet.” Hehe, are your husbands as funny and understanding as he is?


A Token for your Groomsmen

It's pretty hard to find gifts for the groomsmen. But I think this would be a great idea for a groomsmen gift. It would be wonderful too, if they'll be wearing the same cufflinks during the wedding. And aside from that, they get to wear it even after the wedding day. offers discounts on cufflinks and wholesale orders. Check their website and choose from the wide selection. I'd say their collection is unique and everything you see is really nice and one of a kind.


DIY Color

If you noticed, the gray is showing and it’s kinda disgusting! It doesn’t look neat! I finally found the time to DIY again ^_^. I’ve been doing my own hair color for quite some time now. Yes I may have some hair disasters, but that does not stop me from DIY stuff. Well aside from the great savings, the salon I go to do not offer ammonia free hair color. I can’t afford to abuse my crowning glory some more, with all the ironing and stuff. Yes, I am successful, no grays anymore. WOOHOO!


Life Saver

It's not all the time that we have extra money, but what happens when we need it for some unexpected expenditures? It gives us a headache just thinking about it right? Good thing we can always avail of No Fax Payday Loans. This is a type of loan which you can avail if you need cash between paydays. You can avail of it without a credit check, you don't need to submit papers or anything just to get approved. Bankruptcy and poor credit is out of the question here, it should not affect you loan application. There's no collateral needed too. Avail as much as $1,500, it will then be deposited to your current account after it gets approved. All you need to do is fill in the application online, then submit and within seconds you will be contacted by a lender. Kindly check the website for more details, they have a lot of options to choose from.


NPD Not!

I may look like I have Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) by creating my own fashion blog and me as the model ^_^. But did you know that this is my way of DeStressing myself and of course to let the whole world know that even at 40+ we can still enjoy dressing up. I’ve seen a lot of Moms who have forgotten to at least look “good”. They have forgotten about themselves and started focusing on other things like family. I’m not saying that focusing on the family is not good, but well at least try to balance it and have some time for ourselves. Dressing up makes me feel good thus maintaining my self confidence. Whether you’re a size 0 or a 10 does not make any difference at all. It’s a matter of how you carry yourself and feel confident about how you look.

Where Do You Plan to Retire?

North Cyprus is getting popular nowadays as the place chosen by many when they retire. It is located at the eastern edge of the Mideterranean, with miles and miles of unspoilt beaches. It is probably the advantage of having good weather, the people being friendly, english is widely spoken, and the cost of living being the lowest in the Region. So if you are thinking of retiring or migrating to North Cyprus, then maybe you can take a look at this North Cyprus Property. This is being developed by Wellington Estates Ltd., a property developer with UK Management. It's actually safe to buy from them because they only build on the lands they own. I have read a few horror stories about buying properties in North Cyprus. So it's best to deal only with reputable companies like Wellington Estates Ltd.

I started joining the bandwagon in May signing up with just one company. In July I started going full blast signing up with almost all the companies offering sponsored writing. The reason behind why I joined is because I wanted to earn on my own keep. I just miss having my own moolah, you see I resigned from my job in 1995, a decision I made without really thinking. Not that I regret it, in fact I’m ok with it. It has given me time to take care of the needs of the family.

Now that I earning my own keep, I don’t need to burden my husband into buying me my whims. I can take care of it ^_^. But would you believe the moolah I earned from doing sponsored posts is still intact? I have not thought of anything to buy yet. But I am reserving it for a planned trip to Beijing and Shanghai come March (hubby hasn’t given his go signal yet if I can join my cousins on this trip). Well if not, there is a Gucci sling bag waiting for me at the display window. Maybe I’ll get this as a christmas present for myself.

Praying Parent

If you remember, I posted in one of my recent entries that I started reading this book. And I wanna share it with you. Becoming a parent is the most difficult job, it can bring us the greatest joy and the greatest pain as well. We try to do the best we can raising our children. Sometimes it’s a smooth ride, then we encounter problems, sometimes we get tired and want to give up. But we cannot leave our children’s lives to chance. Right? One important part of the job I found out is to have our child’s life covered in prayer. I’ve actually heard this from my Mom, and she has not ceased praying for all of us her children til this day. I will share this with you part by part as it will be a long entry. Keep posted!


Hassle Free Planning

Are you planning a trip to Orlando, Florida? Look no more! I know of a website that provides the most affordable orlando hotel, car rentals, and flights throughout the Florida area. And not only that, this website provides travel guide tips on where to go for dining, entertainment, and nightlife. It also has a city guide if you want to explore Orlando. Find the right places to go to so you won't actually waste your time. They can create a complete itinerary for the whole duration of your stay. Isn't that great? Everything is all planned for you for a smooth and hassle free vacation at


Spicy Chicken Wings

I am inspired to post the few recipes that I usually make for the family especially when someone appreciates it. She prepared this recipe, and her husband loved it. I promised to post the recipe of Spicy Chicken Wings, so here it is:


Tomato Catsup
Rice Wine
White Vinegar
Worcestorshire Sauce
Cayenne Powder
Black Pepper

Coat chicken wings with flour, salt and pepper combined. Deep Fry. Set Aside. Combine all ingredients except flour. Adjust measurement of cayenne powder for desired spicyness. Pour mixture in the pan (let simmer for a few seconds) then put back the fried chicken wings. Let it stay until it dries up a bit. Best served with celery sticks and blue cheese dip. Yum!


Beach Wedding

You must be wondering why we were dressed up this way in our last wedding coverage. Fact is, the wedding was held in Subic, by the beach (well not exactly) but it was overlooking the beach. We were asked or rather we were given the permission to come in our beach attire. It was a fun wedding, for once it was sooooo comfortable working in khakis and white spaghetti top and of course the flipflops.


Need A Buyer for your House?

For my friends in the US, this entry is dedicated to you. Are you planning to sell your house because you're moving to another state? Or you just wanted a bigger house that's why you want to sell your existing house. Or is it the other way around, do you plan on buying a new house? Whatever it is, I want to share this website with you. If you want to sell your house fast, well they buy houses fast too. And if you need cash for houses, you might need their help too.

Wednesday, November 07, 2007

My daughter Ish took this picture. Isn’t it lovely? She is indeed the daughter of N. She proudly showed me this picture and a lot more she took in Subic. Now she is asking us to have it printed in 8r so she could have it framed and display in her room. Honestly I like almost all the photos she took. She has the eye, and it needs to be developed more. She only used her Canon point and shoot camera, what more if we gave her the professional one. The funny part, she was asking if she can sell her pictures in Ebay, haha. She even asked me if professional photographers really earn big moolah. Hmmm how should I answer that, if I’d say yes then she might forget her dream of becoming a lawyer.



Wow! I'm seeing lots and lots of vizio HDTV, is thing telling me something? As I've mentioned time and again in my previous posts that we don't own a high definition TV. Although we did have plans of buying, but some more important things came up. Maybe now we can make it our project to buy one, anyway we have not bought a single telly in years. I've been reading some very good reviews about Vizio HDTV. Performance wise, they say it's good, considering that it has the lowest price of HDTV in the market. See owning an HDTV is very affordable nowadays. I bet the kids would go crazy if they find out we're planning to buy one.



Here’s another pretty dress I bought at 168. I am really funny, after declaring that I am a rehabilitated shopaholic, here I am posting my cheap but pretty shopping find. Well I just can’t resist buying this. Imagine at 480 pesos ($11), who wouldn’t be tempted to buy it, right? And it matches the peep toe sent by my sister. Hmmmm come to think of it, maybe that’s the reason why I was lured into buying this dress, there is a pair of peep toe waiting to be matched.


Daughter Ish at Work

Darling Doll Ish requested if she could come with us to Subic for a wedding coverage last Saturday. This is the first time that she came with us. She has heard a lot about Subic from her Dad, so that’s probably the reason why she wanted to follow. Ahem, she thought she could go shopping at the free port, but sorry darling we went to Subic for work. Actually we just didn’t have extra time to do that…maybe next time ok? Anyway Ish took these two photos of us working. Quite unglamorous, but who cares, whatever position as long as we will take good quality photos. Btw, she helped in the editing of the video (client requested for an on sight editing). Now she’s demanding for salary. Haha, child labor, better give her salary or else ^_^

See pictures here


The Chairwoman Celebrates Her Bday!

I attended the birthday celebration/thanksgiving party of the newly elected Chairwoman (my Cuz). She was having her victory walk with matching drums when we got to their house. I was overwhelmed to see all the people who love her, there were a lot of people in the street to greet her. Part of her celebration was a raffle, giving away different prices for the people in her barangay. I was kinda teary eyed while taking pictures, I couldn’t contain my happiness seeing my beautiful cousin given a warm welcome by the people in her barangay. She is loved!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR CUZ! I love you, mwah!

See pictures here



Wahoo! It feels good, I slept for a good 13 hours. This seldom happens as I need to take care of a lot of things. But today, they just allowed me to sleep, probably because I was really dead tired from yesterday’s work (wedding coverage) which was held in Subic. Yes we travelled all the way there leaving Manila at 9 in the morning just to be there for the 5 pm ceremony. Then we headed back to Manila at half past 10 in the evening, I kinda slept in the car coz I got really dizzy, was just too tired.


Beaded Havaianas

I’ve been eyeing this havaianas ever since I found it in the web. I’m not sure though if it’s already available here. Haven’t really been much to malls so I wouldn’t know. Again this is still part of what I got from my sisters. They are really very generous to me. Thank You MARYs!



That is the dress I bought at 168 Mall today. Isn’t it pretty? It’s made of silk material and the print is just lovely. The colors I love to. And it goes with the peep toe I got from my sister! Hmmmm, what bag should I wear with this? Wahoo, I have something to wear on our next wedding coverage! Wait just between you and me, I paid only 550 pesos ($12) for that dress, what a bargain!

Black Friday Specials

Tuesday, November 06, 2007

This is such as good news I can share with my sisters and friends in the US. They usually take advantage of the Black Friday madness, this is a big big sale a day after thanksgiving. Prices do really drop as much as 80 percent my sisters say. So what they do, as early as 4 in the morning, they rush to their favorite shopping mall and start to fall in line already. Yeah I'm not kidding, you need to be there early to be able to buy the things you want, as it does not stay in the racks for so long. My sisters have been telling me too that it's really tiring especially when you get to the shop and finding out that the items you liked are already gone.

To my dearest sisters, you do not need to go at 4 in the morning anymore. All you need to do is check for your favorite items online. Yes there is also a Black Friday madness going on in the world wide web. All you need to do is check out the thanksgiving ads at You'll be happy to find your favorite brands there. Take advantage of the offers, one that you can't resist. Start shopping for your christmas presents to be given away to friends and family. This is the best time to do it. And don't forget to buy something for my darling boy ^_^ . Check out EBgames specials. He'd love to have something from that store. Ooopsie, I almost forgot, they offer e-mail alerts to let you know that Black Friday ads have been posted. Happy Shopping!


I Love my New Peep Toe

I’d like to thank my sisters for sending me these two beautiful peep toe wedges (whatever it’s called). I’ve been looking for these but can’t seem to find the ones I really like. This would go with the 2 dresses I bought at 168 a while back. Be posting pictures a little later. Woohoo I’m really excited and happy! Thank God for sisters!

Field Trip

I got a text message from my cousin Aleli (dad’s side) if I wanted to join the “field trip” for senior citizens (my Mom, Aunties Glo, Trining and Telly) to 168 Mall at Divisoria on Friday. They actually talked about it while we were at the cemetery and I was like laughing at them, even asking how they can manage to go. That is not just the place for them, there are lots of people and I am just scared that they will be elbowed and could not take it. I thought they were just kidding me, but no, they are really decided to go. I sent an sms to my cousin asking if my Mom is going, and she said yes. Well I have to join their so called field trip, I need to take care of my 81 year old Mom, although she is still very able. My daughter Ish wants to tag along, but I don’t think I will bring her, it’ s hard to take care of 2 people. Next time Ish, we will have our own time. I will just get you the things you requested me to buy for you, ok?



I feel more relaxed now, goodbye to all those body aches. Today, me and the kids went to Ace Water Spa. It’s just a few minutes away from where we stay. The feeling is really overwhelming. It’s actually my first to try it, although I have been bringing them there but I was always at the reception hall. Now I’m quite addicted to it already, I’m already thinking of the day when I can go back and just enjoy hydrotherapy. Hhhhmmmm.


Disney Tickets

It is really advisable to get tickets to theme parks prior to going there. This is what my sister-in-law did when we visited her. She knew that we wanted to go to Disneyland so she got us Disney Tickets ahead of time. She didn't want us to go through the long lines just to buy tickets. Yeah come to think of it, it's pretty much a waste of time. True enough when we got to Disneyland, the queue was terrible. With the tickets my sister-in-law got online, we were able to enjoy the rides right away.

She also mentioned that she got a big discount when she bought the ticket online. See, it does not only save you from falling in line, it came with a discount. Now you know what to do already, ok?


Remembering our Departed LovedOnes

We used to visit the grave of our loved ones on the 1st of November. But due to heavy traffic, we decided to go last Monday. There were a few who decided to go early too. This is a sort of a reunion for us on my dad’s side of the family. Aside from Christmas, this is the only time that we can bond and update on each other.


Laughing our Hearts Out

We got so bored yesterday just staying at home. Ish wanted to watch a movie but the movie she wanted to watch is not shown yet. Anyway we still left. I wanted to leave early so I can do a little window shopping on the side. We went around but I was not able to find something that I really like. See, I don’t buy on impulse anymore, I’m a rehabilitated shopaholic.

N was convincing all of us to watch 30 Days of Night! No way! Even if he pays the kids to watch with him, nobody wanted to come, lol. So Ish was tasked to pick a movie, and it was a good choice. Balls of Fury was really funny, we couldn’t stop laughing from start to finish.


Fiber Optic Cables

Saturday, November 03, 2007

A lot of telephone, internet and cable companies have shifted to fiber optic cables. This is the latest trend today. It used to transmit light signals over long distances. And since fiber optic cables are thinner, it can be bundled more allowing more phone lines and cable channels. The loss in signal is also less compared to the conventional copper wire. Another advantage is light signals from one fiber do not interfere with other fibers in the cable. Ah no wonder more and more are using it.


Dream Vacation House

It's been my dream to have at least one vacation house near a beach. I really love beaches as far as I can remember. I always get excited whenever there's a planned getaway especially if the destination would be in a beautiful beach. If given the chance, or if ever our family can already afford to buy a vacation house, I'd prefer to have W South Beach Condo located in South Florida. This would be the perfect getaway for the family. Florida is known for a lot of things including a very good weather and of course the theme parks and the beautiful beaches. There will never be a dull moment whenever in Florida because there is always so much to do. And the location of the condo is just perfect, just as what I have dreamed of, the beachfront. And not only that, it's just a few minutes walk or a few minutes away to some of the most popular hot spots. Heavenly isn't it?

I know this is really a big dream, a dream I want realized anytime soon. Hmmm, that means we have to work harder and start saving for it now, it's all worth it.

Galco Holsters

This site is truly heaven sent. My husband has been looking for these certain Galco Holsters that he couldn't find here in our country. He says that this is the best gun holster and the most popular. Knowing my husband, he'd always go for the best and the high end brands. I'll have to show him, he might be able to find some things he might need. By ordering it all together we can save on shipping.

Boy Magnet

Thursday, November 01, 2007

I often hear Josh call/refer to his sister as “boy magnet”. It’s like when I admire Ish with anything, next the words that will come out of Joshua’s mouth would be “boy magnet”. While we were having lunch awhile back I asked him what “boy magnet” means. And he was like, “Duh! Mommy it’s the things that you do that attracts boys. You know, like how you fix your hair, the clothes that you wear.” I suddenly fixed my hair “Isha Style”, then said, like this Josh? Do I qualify? And he was like… “For the love of …Noooooo, you are already married!” Haha, as if I don’t know that. What’s funny, their Dad reacted, saying “No boy magnet for you, you are married.” DUH!


NFL Jerseys

It's really cool seeing kids wear NFL Jerseys. I've seen a lot of kids in my sister's neighborhood wear it. Even in malls, in the park and more so at the ballpark. Kids would normally come and watch the games clad in favorite player's jersey. I can't blame them since they really idolize those good players. It's one way of showing their support to their favorite team. It would be a nice idea too, to wear it to a children's costume party. I'm sure with the just concluded trick or treat, a lot of kids wore their jerseys. I once asked my son why he wants to wear the jersey of his favorite player. All he could answer is, "I'm a great fan, you know!" I guess that's how it is, you'd like to imitate everything about your idol. Oopps, I almost forgot. This NFL Jerseys can also be worn as pajamas. They are made of soft material which is really comfortable to use. This can be great gifts for this holiday season. If you can't think of a gift to give to your nephews, then this would be the perfect gift. They would be happy to receive it, just don't forget to ask their Moms who their favorite team and favorite players are.
