Use Coupon Codes

Friday, February 29, 2008

For the shopaholic out there, here are some coupon codesyou can make use. I have already checked all store listings and I found a lot of things I like. I don't know but I have this thing for buying stuffs only if I get discounts. Probably because times are hard, and if I am able to stretch the budget I would do so. So I am always in the look out for great deals, freebies, coupons and discounts. And if ever I find one, I make it a point to share it here in my blog. Go ahead, check out the coupon codes now and start shopping.


Feel the Comfort

Thursday, February 28, 2008

You know how my son loves massages. Before he goes to bed, he would either ask me or his Dad for a massage. There are nights that he gets disappointed because we can't give him one. One time we went to the mall, the hubs pointing to a massage chair and says, "this is what we should get Josh, so that if none of us is available, he can still get his nightly massage." I was like, oh sure, and started imagining myself sitting in that massage chair. ^_^


Nope, Not Tomorrow =(

I thought I was gonna get it last Wednesday, because that's what Josh told me. He was the one who picked up the call and the guy from the service center left a message. Yes, he got the message right but he added something to it. I think he was playing an online game that's why he didn't pay much attention. Good thing I called the service center to verify if indeed my laptop was for release. And the answer I got was a NO. The part already arrived from Singapore but they are still in the process of installing and testing it. My, my, I'm getting a little impatient already. I hope to get it back before school's out, if not I will have to content myself with my 8 year old laptop =( that is sooooooooooooo slow.


A Trucking Job for You

I have a friend in Canada who has a budding trucking job. He says it really pays well and he is very happy that he got into this kind of job. Now he is able to fend for his family back home. There are a lot of trucking jobs available and if you want to go into that kind of job, just go to They have the best trucking jobs to offer you.


Tomorrow Maybe?

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

Somebody from the service center called last Saturday. It was Josh who took the call. Apparently I had 2 callers, I think Josh got it all mixed up, the messages. Now he's not even sure if my laptop is for release already. All he remembers is that the part already arrived from Singapore. I totally forgot about the message today. I should have called to make sure if indeed I can now get my laptop. I have to call them early in the morning tomorrow, because if i'm not gonna get it anytime soon, I will be charged with a parking fee.

Woohoo, it took 2 weeks only, or should I say a week. Yikes I don't remember the date I brought it there. I'm too lazy to take a look at the receipt. Anyways, I am very happy that I can get it back now. It's hard to be using someone else's laptop.


Great Business for Moms

Thank goodness for this website, We can find great business opportunities especially for us stay-at-home Moms. This website provides great business opportunities that will help us establish our own home business. I really like this idea. Aside from the fact that I can earn my own keep, I can still manage the needs of the family. I still have time to teach my kids with their homework, cook their favorite food and bond with them. It's a matter of time management really.

Come on, I know you are interested. I'm pretty sure that you will be able to find the kind of home business you want to have in this website. Now is your chance...don't waste it.

Pick the Best

Monday, February 25, 2008

Most of us want to look trimmed, not too thin, not too fat. I for one, I really watch what I eat to be able to maintain the frame that I am now in. I am blessed to have a trimmed body, though not the kind of body to die for, but I am already very contented. But what about those people who are not as blessed as me? I know of some who resort to diet pills. But did you know that there is a website that makes a review of diet pills? And they have a list of the best diet pills. It's sometimes scary to just take anything just to be able to lose weight. It's best to be educated on something that has to do with your health.


Don't Forget My Gloves

My daughter Ish asked me to buy exam gloves for her Science Laboratory activity a few weeks ago. And you know what they did? She finds it pretty gross but she can't do anything. Every high school student has to go through dissecting a frog. When she got home, she had plenty of stories to tell. I suddenly remembered my elementary days when I did the same thing. We started comparing notes, well those ones I can remember only since it has been eons ago when I dissected a frog.




Look at that! Her collection grew over the years, some bought, the rest were presents to her by her friends. It keeps her company every night, when she sleeps. She no longer has her nanny beside her when she sleeps. She loves all of them, and wouldn't want to dispose any of them. Just like me with my Trixie, she loves to dress them too. We have not gone to the mall together yet to buy clothes for all her friends, but we will, when we have the time to do so. Maybe when school's done we can do that.


Leave it to Them

Moving from one place to another is really difficult. We've experienced that twice already and it's really very stressful. We didn't hire movers though coz at that time we had a pool of workers and a truck which we rented. But it's totally different if we hired professional movers. I would not have experienced headaches. I would have hired something like the services rendered by this New York Moving Company. Well, lessons are learned the hard way, but at least next time I know better. I will let them do the hard work next time while just sitting pretty, lol.


Please Visit =)

Thank goodness my Fashion Blog is back and with a new look this time. It took me some time to fix it, actually I just didn't have the time to do it. And I got lazy too, coz everything was erased, I mean all the entries. Good thing I was able to save copies of the layout. It's not updated though, first quarter is just so busy and I am always in a hurry. Don't have the luxury of time to be taking self portraits ^_^.


Flowers for your Wedding

Friday, February 22, 2008

We are in the wedding business, although not as a florist but I pretty much have an idea how it would cost. It's grand, I mean if you want to have beautiful floral arrangements for your wedding, it will cost you a fortune. But hey, did you know that you can get pretty flowers at affordable prices? I know of a website where you can buy not just bulk roses but different kinds of flowers you want to have on your wedding day. And why do I say it's affordable? It's because you buy the flowers directly from them. No more middlemen here which is sometimes the reason why prices of flowers go up. Check out their wedding flower packages which can save you a great deal on your budget.


Pretty Sunday

Thursday, February 21, 2008

Introducing my niece, Martha Francesca, she's a little over 2 and the youngest daughter of my brother. She's really very funny and such a cutie. When we went to visit my Mom, she saw my nail polish. She said she wanted her nails done too. So I promised her that the next time I come back I will be bringing different colors of nail polish. The next time I visited Mom, I totally forgot about my promise but she did not. She was sad and I had to explain to her that I forgot. So last Sunday her dream came true. She has been telling her Dad that Ninang (that's how she calls me though i'm not her godmother)will be putting "cutex" on her nails. When I called her, she was excited. She even asked me if I brought eye shadow with me ^_^. We had makeup session too a few sundays ago. I told her that it was not part of the promise. I had to promise again to bring my make up kit next Sunday. While putting the nail polish, I told her not to move, apparently she got tired because in the middle of the session she wanted me to quit ^_^. Well the price she has to pay for wanting to have beautiful nails.


Personalized Lockets

Tuesday, February 19, 2008

What do you think of that gold locket? It's pretty right? Yes, I want to have that. It's a 14k gold locket where I can have our picture lasered. It's 100 percent waterproof and will last a lifetime. That's one of the designs I really find cool from the Gold Lockets collection. Silver Lockets are also available in different designs. You should check it out. It would make a wonderful present too for your loved ones. How about a Mother's Day gift to your Moms? You can put the picture of the family on one side of the locket, and a special message on the other side of the locket. Cool idea, right?


North Carolina Properties for Sale

Monday, February 18, 2008

Do you have plans of moving to North Carolina? Maybe you can take a look at this North Carolina land for sale. There are actually a lot more lots for sale around North Carolina. Whether or not you want to stay in the countryside, there are lots available for you. If you love fishing and hunting, there is an available residential lot that you can purchase. If you're looking for an estate home, a mini farm or a horse farm, that is not a problem since they have properties specially for that purpose on sale.


Perfect Lighting

Have you seen a lighting showplace where you can see all the beautiful light fixtures? For those ones who are building their dream house, this website will really be helpful. You will be able to find ideas on how to position the lights in the house and what kind of light fixtures you should be using. Start shopping by room now and go through the large selection of brand name products when it comes to light fixtures.


I Miss my Laptop

It's pretty hard not having to do stuffs in my own laptop. I have my old one though, but it sucks big time. It's slow, very slow, even slower than a turtle, and I get impatient. Now I'm using my son's laptop, but only upon his disposal, if you know what I mean. I take advantage of it while there is school, because come weekend even if I cry blood, I can't use it. My son says I'm uber, because he is at my side while I'm doing this entry.

Back to the laptop. The service center says that it's going to stay with them for 3 weeks. The problem is the hardware that handles the wireless connection. Would you believe they don't have the parts available? Yep, they will source out, all the way from Singapore. BOO!


Bigger Letters

Oh dear! I think I need this magnifying glass anytime soon. Yeah, I am not kidding. At my age, I shouldn't be wearing reading glasses yet, but as it is I'm wearing a reading glass fit for golden girls. I'm a bit early I admit that's why I'm saying I need a magnifying glass. It's a good thing there are a lot of choices. I believe for my age I should be discreet in using it, lol. I'd pick something small, pocket size perhaps. Well anything that would make the letters bigger, the better.


I Love Your Blog...Really!

I know this is super duper late, but I can't catch up with all the tags and awards left and right. I know I'm being lazy, err make that busy, so please forgive me Francine. I'd like to thank you for always remembering when it comes to tags and awards. You're one sweet lady I'd like to keep as friend for the rest of my life.

I'd still like to pass this to the following bloggers, simply because I love their blogs. A belated valentine present for you guys ^_^.

The Chairman ~ KC, the hip S.T.Y.L.I.S.T ~ DaphneLaura ~ CutiePatootie ~ Thess ~ Justice


Classy Furniture

Wow! This is my kind of furniture stores. I love everything I see and there are numerous pieces I want to own. They carry different name brands, and guess what? They offer 40 to 50 percent off retail prices. They've been doing this since they started in 1949. You should see their collection, it's really nice, very simple and yet with a lot of class. Every room would look beautiful. I also like the idea of them putting a room planner in their website. When we built this house where we are staying, I've been going a lot of room planner over the net just to get ideas how I should fix the house.


Best Investment

Sunday, February 17, 2008

Prices of almost everything is going down except the gold price. If you check the world market for the price of gold, there was never a time that it depreciated. Currencies depreciate quite fast, so if ever you have extra which you don't intend to use, it's better if you invest in gold. Investing in gold has higher returns compared to all the products banking/financial institutions have to offer. It has been said that buying gold is one of the best ways to preserve one's wealth and buying power. If you are interested in investing in gold, why don't you hover over to This company has been America's gold, silver and precious metals investment leader. And not only that, they are known to be the best dealer due to their competitive prices.


Thanks =)

Aside from this, I also got this on V Day. Isn't it cute? The small bag contains kisses chocs which N ate, well he left a piece for me ^_^. I actually did not expect to receive this from her, but I am happy and thankful that she remembered me on V day. I actually thought of giving her her favorite candy on V day, but since I was so busy, I totally forgot to get it for her. Well a belated V day present is not bad. I'm going to the area where I buy the candies tomorrow. You see I have to take the LRT just to buy those candies =)

Again thank you so much for being thoughtful. We (me and Ish) loved what you gave us.


Pretty Designs

Saturday, February 16, 2008

This website reminds me that I should be getting new shower curtains for our bathrooms. Shown in the picture is a sample of how beautiful and dainty their designs are. I want to own all 16 designs. I think the price is reasonable for a quality fabric shower curtain, and not only that, if you order, shipping is free. Too bad, some of the designs are out of stock. So hurry, purchase before it runs out. Ahem, calling on my sisters, you know what to get me when you send a box over here, lol. And if possible can you please get me all 16 designs?


Red is the Color of the Day

Thursday, February 14, 2008

This VEE day tag was passed on to me by Cuz, the lady with me in the picture.

Here are the rules:

1. Post YOUR photo wearing red, may it be a red top, bottom, the least would be red accessories if you hate wearing red… If you can’t find one, you still have an option…. Either post your Significant Other’s photo or your child’s photo, if you have one. Of course, they should be wearing red.

2. Let us know the reason why you were wearing red that particular day. Was it your birthday? Is red your fave color or was it the shirt that you first saw in your closet that day?

3. Tag 3 people close to your heart. By the way, they have to be in your blogroll. No cheating heart pleaseeeeeeee!

4. Once you’re tagged, could we please keep it going - just for this month?


That picture was taken on my 41st birthday. I was not really intending to wear red, but since The Chairman insisted that it's lucky to wear something red on your birthday, I did.

Just to remind you not to cheat: tag 3 people close to your heart =)

New Look

Monday, February 11, 2008

Nope it's not me although there's something new with me too. Ish my 14 year old daughter decided she wants to have a new look. This time she wants to curl her hair. She says she pities me everytime I iron her hair. I actually do it almost everyday. Really Ish? Is it really me? Or you were just convinced that you look prettier with curly hair. Anyways, I was with her at Tony and Jackey when she had her hair's called digital perm. It's soft and bouncy, big curls, the way she likes it.

And what's new with me? I had another eyeglasses made, this time with nosepads on...I still wanna have "betty boop" lashes even with glasses on.


HDMI Switches

I hate to see cables here and there. It's kinda messy to look at. Do you know that there is a solution to that? For owners of HDTV, you can purchase HDMI switches to allow you to switch devices in just one click. I know you already hate seeing different cables from different devices, plus the fact that it's also tiring to shift cables every now and then. So what better way to avoid all these? HDMI switch it is. Yep this is all you need.


The Much Talk About

Sunday, February 10, 2008

Oh no! Didn't notice that I have not posted in this blog for ages already. A lot of things came up after the reunion. It was one helluva busy week really. I didn't even know how I survived. Anyways, I posted some pictures of the reunion here. You can actually see a few more in my other blog. This is the longest reunion celebration so far. Non-stop partying! There are plans of celebrating the Diamond Year in America, whoa! how cool is that. This is just a plan but knowing the people behind, they're gonna make extra effort to make this happen. Woohoo, so looking forward to celebrating 30 years...gosh I'm old =(


Want to Lose Weight?

I've read a lot of good reviews about hoodia. A lot have claimed that it has helped them lose weight. Hoodia is known to contain a natural botanical ability to suppress a person's appetite. But be careful though when buying Hoodia, be sure to read the Hoodia buying guide first because there are reports that less reputable Hoodia is invading the market.



Tuesday, February 05, 2008

Here's a preview of what happened last Saturday at the HS Grand Alumni Homecoming. That picture was taken right after the toast. People were stationed at all corners of the quadrangle to pop out confetti right after the toast. Fireworks followed which was really awesome. After which the band played 80s music and on with the non-stop dancing. A lot congratulated us for a job well done. We were the host for that night as we were also celebrating our silver year. A lot say that so far that night was the best!


Premium Seats

Monday, February 04, 2008

I really get frustrated whenever I want to watch a show but couldn't get the choice seat that I want. Sometimes just because I don't get it, I usually end up not watching the show at all. Do you sometimes feel that? People in the States are lucky because there is this website where they can get tickets that are already sold out. Take for example the avid fans of Miami Heat. Did you know that you can still watch their games by getting Miami Heat Tickets online? Not only that, there is a chance that you can have the choice seats you really want. Nice isn't it? By going to their website, you will also find out that they have tickets to other shows, like concerts, baseball games, etc. Don't waste you time by going somewhere else. Purchase you tickets at


Ways to Reduce Stress

Sunday, February 03, 2008

I found this in my inbox and I thought of sharing this with all of you. It's not that hard to reduce stress after all.

1. Pray
2. Go to bed on time.
3. Get up on time, so you can start your day unrushed.
4. Say No to projects that won't fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health.
5. Delegate tasks to capable others.
6. Simplify and unclutter your life.
7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)
8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.
9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don't lump the hard things all together.
10. Take one day at a time.
11. Separate worries from concerns . If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety . If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it.
12. Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for ordinary purchases.
13. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.
14. Do something for the Kid in You everyday.
15. Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line.
16. Get enough rest.
17. Eat right.
18. Get organized so everything has its place.
19. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don't wait until it's time to go to bed to try and pray.
20. Make friends with Godly people.
21. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good 'Thank you Jesus.'
22. Laugh.
23. Laugh some more!
24. Take your work seriously, but not yourself at all.
25. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).
26. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).
27. Sit on your ego.
28. Talk less, listen more.
29. Slow down.
30. Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before. GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND FOR YOU.

See? It's easy to have a stress-free life!


Oh Well

Plans of going out of the country (Beijing & Shanghai) is not happening. I'm quite sad about it, N does not allow me to go out of the country or even out of town without him. I had to beg off from all the invitations from cousins. Cuz wanted me to go with them to Jakarta, but again when I asked permission he said no =(

And since he says no to all the travels without him, I decided to just spend my earnings from doing sponsored posts by purchasing this. It's a pretty good buy since I got it at 20 percent off. Now I have something pretty to wear when I go work.

Purified Water To Prevent Mesothelioma

Since it is not safe to drink water coming out from the faucet because of water contamination, we have long been buying purified water, something similar to o premium waters. O Premium waters is the largest bottled water delivery in Arizona. They boast of their 10 step purification process, so their water is purer than anything you drink today. Good thing the use of asbestos is not required in this purification process, otherwise one can get Mesothelioma. You can even take on their challenge, and if not proven, they give you free drinking water supply for six months. Hmmm they are really sure of what they are doing, because if not, they wouldn't gamble giving you water supply for six months. Plus the fact that they don't want to hear from an asbestos attorney. They also have the lowest rate, and when you decide to get your drinking water from them, delivery is free plus you also get to use their water cooler for free.
