I enjoyed my weekend at my Mom's place. I was able to take photos of her garden, err flowers in particular. They were all in full bloom and such beauty to behold. Good thing I always have my Sony P&S camera in my bag. It was showering a bit when I took those photos. My brother even made me stop, but what the heck, I wanna take pictures. It was my sister who planted those, and I know she will be happy seeing it here in my blog. There are actually more photos I took, it's all in my flickr account if you want to take a look.
I have this habit of not answering phone calls especially if I don't recognize the number. I think most of us do. And the number one reason is avoiding telemarketers. Come on admit it. I do get annoyed answering calls from telemarketers because they just wouldn't give up. There is actually a solution for this. If you want to find out who's calling, just run Reverse Phone Lookups. It works whether a phone number is listed or not. Now you have a way of finding out who's calling you. Ooops, I almost forgot. You can also register your phone number at National No Call Registry so that your numbers will be erased from the database telemarketers have. This is absolutely a free service.
This is my newest passion now, knitting. Hubby said, all I need is a rocking chair, i'm knitting, wearing eyeglasses, and needs a rocking chair. Nah I'm not gonna be a granny anytime soon, but signs are pointing I can make a good grannie. Haha, as if knitting is all there is to being a good granny. I'm not an expert yet as you can see. I need to do something about the edge, it curls, maybe it was too tight. Oh never mind, I don't want to repeat it. Next time I know better, now that I am getting the hang of it. Knitting is totally different from crocheting, for now I am partial to knitting simply because I am enjoying my new passion.

This is my entry for this week's Weekend Snapshot. I had the chance to take this beautiful photo when we had a wedding coverage at Subic Bay Yacht Club in Subic last Saturday. Isn't it beautiful? I was really very happy when I got there because it gave me the chance to take beautiful photos. I have a lot more to share but I have not uploaded it to flickr just yet. I hope to be able to do more photography in the coming days.

They say that Edinburgh is one of the most picturesque cities in Europe. Just like Dublin, it boasts of its fine medieval and georgian architecture. While there, the old town and new town are not to be missed. It is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Again Edinburgh Accomodation will never be a problem since there are a lot of available hotels to choose from. You can even book online if you want. If you decide to visit more places like Glasgow and Liverpool, you can find the cheapest Glasgow Accomodation and Liverpool Accomodation at cheaperthanhotels.co.nz.

We went to Subic last Saturday for a wedding coverage. I was excited with the idea already because I was in a photographer's mood. This does not happen all the time as I am too lazy to take shots. I mean for my personal file. Of course I work during the wedding ceremony and reception. But last Saturday was different. I was "trigger" happy. I'm glad I was able to take very good photos. Thanks to the photo memes that I joined, they took out the laziness in me, harhar.

This week's theme in Litratong Pinoy is square. I didn't have a hard time looking for a square item but I had a hard time deciding which item I should include in this week's theme. Anyways, the photos that you see is what I picked. I've used that as a pencil/pen holder and not as what it is designed to be, a candle holder, or that's what the girl said when I bought it. In the first picture, I decided to use my flash for you to be able to see the real colors. For some drama, I photographed it without a flash, and it turned out pretty. You can read the rest of the entry here.

Haha, it's like screaming it loud, duh but i'm no PRO. I do it for exercise and I don't have any plans of turning pro, heh like I can. Well, that shirt was a token given to me by our Teacher when she had her dayoff and I was one of those who took over. Now I'm waiting for that episode to be shown. I don't have any idea when so I'd better watch every Saturday. I hope I won't miss it. Hmmm, maybe I can ask Teacher to send me sms, for sure she knows when.
There's another place I recommend you go and visit. Not that I saw much of it, but based on the areas I've been to Bangkok is one of the best too. Shopping is to die for. With the 3 days I spent in Bangkok, all I did was shop, it's overwhelming. Oh I love the food there too, though it's a bit hot, I still love it. It was my cousin who invited me to go with her there. She said that she has found Cheap Hotels in Bangkok in the internet. And when I saw the rate, I immediately said yes. It was really very affordable and it's located in the heart of Bangkok. I love my Bangkok experience too.
This is one place that I have not been too. My daughter and I saw one TV special featuring Kuala Lumpur. She got so excited and listed it in her "places to visit". It's in my list too, since I've heard a lot about the place. I'd love to see the Petronas Tower. A friend has just been there and she said it was awesome. She recommended some Cheap Hotels in Kuala Lumpur where we can stay. Hmmm it's time to save some moolah again if I want to visit this beautiful place. How about you? Can you share some wonderful experiences of Asia?

That's what I had 3 days ago, with a piece of meat to go with it. I didn't have rice, just that. And what do you know, after 5 minutes I went hungry, came down and gulped a glass of milk. I wonder if I can still go back to the days when all I eat for lunch and supper is just a plate of salad. Yeah I did that for 2 straight weeks and I lost weight. Oh I have to get used to it again. For lunch I again had salad with fried chicken on the side. Again I didn't eat rice, but this time I didn't drink milk either, haha success! I wish to do away with the bulging tummy in time for another dance recital. I hope I can do it.
It's actually very easy to prepare a salad. Here I used 2 kinds of lettuce, apples, oranges, black olives and bacon bits. And here's how I made the dressing. Mix together olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Add sugar and salt. That's it. You can add ground black pepper to your salad if you wish.

Now this is the new hairstyle I am talking about. I decided to have it cut a little shorter and with bangs this time. I like it, it made me look a little younger. If I'm turning 42 in June, let's just say I look 40 there. Oooppsss, give it to me, this is my blog anyway, hehe. Oh can you not see the additional six pounds I gained? Maybe not, it's hidden under the top thank goodness. I need to put a stop to munching if not I'll grow wider and wider. This is what I hate about sitting in front of the computer on a much longer time, I do get hungry. While the mind is working, the mouth needs to do it's share too, harhar.

I just want to share with you my week's entry at Litratong Pinoy. The theme is actually "tatlo ang sulok ko" (i have 3 sides - triangle) for this week. I know my entry is funny, but the thing is, I couldn't find any single thing with a shape of a triangle in the house, neither can I find anything in my photo files. Since I really do not want to miss taking part, I found some ways and you can now see it in the picture. It can also be submitted in last week's theme which was "bilog" (circle). Oh well, being resourceful helps, see I was able to come up with an entry. The same goes with life. Not everything is handed on a silver platter. We need to work hard to be able to achieve something.

This is one of our favorite things to do...having midnight snack. I have a stock of the Keror Sparkling Wine in different flavors. Well I have only one left already and it's time to buy some more. My kids discovered this non-alcoholic drink last December when we had our Noche Buena over at my in-laws place. Both of them finished the whole bottle. At first I thought there was even a little percent of alcohol because my son was quite hyper when he finished half of the bottle. Haha, turned out he was only excited. Now they are asking me when we are going to have one again...oh maybe tonight ^_^.

That is my entry to the Litratong Pinoy's circle theme for this week. LP is open to all Pinoy Photographers (Pro and Amateur) here and abroad. The start was an overwhelming success, and I'd like to congratulate Thess for putting up this photo meme.
That entry reminded me to once again go back to biking, but not in the hot streets of MOA but just in the confines of our house. Whether indoor or outdoor, I just need to ride it once again since I've gained 6 lbs. already. And if I'm not gonna do something about that, oh I don't wanna think about it.

I found the time yesterday to do my nails, both fingers and toes. I was also able to some nail art, well stickers actually, the one I bought from Face Shop. Honestly I like doing nail art from scratch, meaning I do my own design. The stickers just looked dull on my nails. Or maybe it's a matter of getting used to the color? With my own design, I can play with different colors, which really makes it attractive. Oh well, maybe I will do it alternately, next would be my own design. Haha, the nailart on my toenail looked like fungus or something, it's funny.
TGI Friday's is one of the favorite restaurants of my kids, and it has become my favorite also. Though it's kinda pricey, the food is really good. Fried Mozarella is the kids ultimate favorite, but they were not able to have it when we went there last Sunday coz they run out. I've been trying to learn, err I will try my hand at making those fried mozarella when I have the time, Ish is always requesting me to make it. I on the other hand love their fries, it's yummy and I can eat a whole plate of it. We usually order extra because my kids love it too. Oh don't forget to order Mocha Mud Pie, it's N's favorite and it's really yummy.
