It Can be Avoided

Wednesday, December 23, 2009

I should say it runs in the family. Name it we have it. Haha I'm talking about allergies. That's why I am really very careful so as not to trigger it. I wish all these allergy relief products are available here since it would really be a big help. I will try and look it up if not maybe I can order online or let someone buy it for me and have it shipped. It's hard when kids get sick, so why not prevent it?


He's now 14

Thank you Lord for adding another year to my son's life. I pray that he will continue to love and serve you. I pray that you will grant him good health. I pray that you will help him with his studies. Lord guide him in his everyday life, teach him to be what you want him to be. Lord I pray that I will be able to raise them to be good Christians, always abiding in your will.

I love you my son, and happy birthday.

*a late post for his dec. 15th bday ^_^


Beach Hotspot in Hawaii

Friday, December 04, 2009

I have not been to Hawaii and that's one place I want to visit someday. I heard from a friend that it's really a must see place before someone dies. It must really be a very nice place. There's another friend who frequents Honolulu too, like they do it once a year. They are probably staying in one of these honolulu hotels. You know why? When I saw how affordable the prices are, and that they give out up to 50 percent off, in my mind ah that's where my friend and her family stay. Do check out the rates if I were you, I saw some 40 percent off on a beach hotspot.


Slouchy Meret

I'll be attempting to do this "Meret". It's actually the Mystery Beret thus Meret. I just got done with the scarf and it's ready to be shipped now. I'll do it probably on Monday since the Post Office is closed on weekends. I know we live in the tropics, but my daughter would really want to have a slouchy beret. I made her a beanie already and this time she requested for a beret. I'll post the source of the pattern when I'm already done with it.


My Vacation Spot

Did I ever tell you that I want to retire in a quiet place very near the seashore? If this is really not possible, I would spend a week or two each year in a place where there is a beautiful beach. I would prefer something like this Outer Banks vacations simply because it's homey. It's like home away from home. The property itself is already a vacation spot aside from the fact that it's located a few yards away from the seashore. This is simply heaven, a dream vacation that each of us deserves. At first I was quite hesitant, but seeing their rates I told myself, oh I can afford it after all. It's like rewarding myself with all the hard work I've done.


Get Rid of Belly Fat

I'm so excited...and I just can't hide it! Do you wanna know the reason why? I found the solution on how to burn belly fat. You see that is my biggest problem now. It's actually parallel to gaining weight. I've put on 17 lbs. and I just have a feeling that it all went to my belly. It's really ugly since I got this really huge bump that would make you think that I have just given birth. I've done a few things that would make it smaller, but it does not seem to work. It's probably that I am lazy too. This time I want to be serious already. I started having salad for dinner, hopefully I get to eat it at lunch too.


Belated Present

This beautiful Ice Watch was a belated birthday present from my beloved cousin Marie. I actually demanded it from her. Well that's how she likes it. She wants me to tell her what I really want. I think that's cool. I would do the same and by that I would be pretty sure that my present would be greatly appreciated. Don't worry, I know what to demand and I don't take advantage, it's not in my system. That watch is actually a present for all the occasions that can be found in a single year. Fair enuf? ^_^


Take A Break

There really comes a time in a person's life that he feels like having a break. A tired feeling that you feel like rejuvenating. Taking a break is important, well that's just my humble opinion. It's time to recharge, to rethink and to fix whatever needs to be fixed. Now talking about taking a break, I think I need one. I found this place online which people talk about. It's quite popular probably because it's really nice there. Wondering if you have a place to stay there? It's no problem really since there are affordable myrtle beach vacation rentals. You would be surprised to find that the rates are really affordable, and having a short break is therefore affordable too.


Graduation Present

My daughter's high school graduation is nearing. I am truly positive that she will be marching that's why I can talk about it. Now what is an appropriate present for her? She likes a lot of stuff but I guess she'll have surprised and happy to receive this Gold Initial Pendant. She's been asking me if I can make one for her. I guess graduation will be the perfect time to gift her with that. Now if I have extra moolah, I can probably upgrade it to a diamond initial pendant which I found in the same website where I found the gold one.



I thought I was done playing Farmtown. For a while I have not been playing it. Probably because I found another game and I got hooked once again. Out of curiosity, I checked on Farmtown! Wow a lot of new stuff! You can now even buy the adjacent lot, way too cool, right? Yeah but you gotta have 3M. Is that my target? Not at the moment, I just play to enjoy and to pass up my time. Haha as if I am not busy. There are a lot of stuff waiting to be finish, yeah I am talking to myself, just the perfect reminder.


Text Alert

Friday, November 27, 2009

I actually want the school where I send my kids to have a text alert system. A lot will benefit with this thing especially when it comes to important announcements. Sometimes it's just so hard to get through the school's phone lines and it becomes frustrating. Important announcements like class being cancelled should reach all persons concerned at the right time. But in our case it does not. There are occasions that we have brought the kids to school already only to find out that classes were suspended. If only we had this text alert system, then none of this should be happening.


A Tux for Him

"Hey Dad! I need you to take my's for my profile pic in Facebook." That's my son talking. And he wants to have his picture taken in coat and tie which he wore only once and does not fit him anymore. He's even talking about getting a new tuxedo. Eversince, this little big guy of mine is so into formal clothing. Whenever we go to formal occasions, it's always a coat and a tie for him. Probably because he can see that formal clothing really suits him and he looks good in it.


My Perfect Companion

You are my perfect companion in my campaign to work on my abs. It's been a problem for more than a decade already. I keep promising that I'd start working on it, but after a few days, I get lazy. And look what I have become, 17 pounds heavier. I look good despite the weight gain, but it all went to the wrong places if you know what I mean. Nobody wants a bulging stomach and I just hate the fact that I have it. I have to work double time if I want it a little flat, not super flat, but just a little flatter.


Time to Say Goodbye

I really need to buy a new laptop. My two year old laptop died on me and I just can't afford the cost of repair. It's not really reasonable since you can buy this new laptop with the price they are requesting me to pay. I was like NO WAY, I will just buy a new one. There's this ruby red laptop that I am eyeing and I am totally in love with it. I am still saving money for it and hopefully I will be able to purchase it early next year. It's hard not having a computer of your own. It's like you are always at someone else's mercy. And I just hate that feeling.


Electric Fireplace

Monday, November 23, 2009

Cool! Guess what I saw online? There is an ongoing sale of electric fireplace until the end of November. Honestly I didn't know that there is such thing. Pardon me, I live in the tropics so there's really not much I know about fireplaces. The ones I see are the traditional ones if you know what I mean. But really these electric fireplaces are cool. If you have a small place, they have a small fireplace for you. Come and look at the prices, I tell you it's very affordable. You gotta hurry too because the sale will only be until the end of November. You still have a few days left.


Gray Sandals

Isn't it pretty? Oh forget about the foot, it's the footwear I am talking about. I saw that on our way to Church one Sunday. But I first went to attend the Sunday Service before going down to purchase it. And you know what's good about it? It's dirt cheap. Got it only for about Two hundred fifty pesos, and that's roughly a little above five dollars. I've actually learned my lesson. I'm no longer buying expensive footwear, it gets destroyed over time especially if you don't get to wear it often.


Unique Floor Tiles

Sunday, November 22, 2009

Who among you are building your dream homes? Or probably renovating? Can I suggest something? I just can't keep my mouth shut on these floor tiles I saw online. There are a lot of nice choices be it ceramic, metal, porcelain, glass and natural stone. You'd be inspired by the patterns and colors that you will see. You will definitely be able to choose after going thru all their tile products. See for yourself, so that you'd understand what I mean.


Fight Wrinkles

It's inevitable, problems beset us. But I guess it's how you face your problems that is important. Oftentimes you hear your friends tell you not to be so consumed with your problems or else wrinkles will appear. I've been told about that wrinkle thingy a lot of times already and I am readying myself with the use of an anti-wrinkle cream. I can't deny that huge problems really consume me. There are times I can help it but there are just times that I can't. I am just human after all, so others say.


Thanksgiving: Kids

There is an ongoing meme over at facebook and I decided to join it. I will be reposting it here in my blog so my other friends who are not in facebook yet can read about the things that I am thankful for.

I am thankful for the joy my kids bring. They are the apple of my eye and they are my bundle of joy. I can't imagine what life will be without them. They just bring me so much joy and I truly appreciate it. They make life worth living.


Male Stuff

Saturday, November 21, 2009

I've been hearing the word spring plungers but have not really bothered to know what it looks like or what it's for. You can't blame me for not being interested in guy stuff once in a while. Like would a girl normally be? I know that is not a fair reason, but then again it pays to know a little more, whether it's male or female stuff. I know you would agree with me on this.


Live Chat

I always see this live chat thingy in websites who offer services. It's more or less their support group. Silly you might think but I've been dreaming to have my own live chat in my website. It's instant communication with my readers. I might give this live chat software a try, probably get their basic package. I just want to talk to the people who visit my website, interact with them, who knows this might be the start of a new friendship.


BF Clothes

Friday, November 20, 2009

When I saw the shorts (almost the same as what I'm wearing) in the display window of Zara, I immediately remembered my son's old navy shorts given to him by my sister. Nope he didn't get to wear it in fact the tag was still there when I decided to wear it. Then I went thru Ish's locker and found that plaid top. I think that was given by a uncle when he visited the Philippines. Anyway I got the inspiration to wear my so called "boyfriend" clothes when I saw the display. It doesn't really look bad after all. Next time I will be experimenting with the top. I already have an idea what to wear with the shorts next time.



Thursday, November 19, 2009

"Mom, I want something for Christmas," said my darling boy one night. I held my breath for a while because I know that when this boy of mine asks, it's pretty expensive. True enough he is asking for an HDTV, but my consolation is he's gonna share in the payment. He's been asking too about Bluray dvd players. Apparently this is new to him and I think he heard about it from an online gaming friend. I'd love to have one too, so I think it's going to be okay if one day he will ask for that.


Weight Loss Needed

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

I am nearly desperate. I can't do anything with my weight gain. It seems like I'm gaining weight each day. The last time I weighed, I was like 15 lbs. heavier. And guess what? I'm 2 pounds heavier again. I am getting desperate. Nearly looking into using this quick weight loss pill. What do you think? I am quite envious about the weight loss by some friends, I am not just sure if they've been using the same pill. But really, I don't know what to do with this weight gain anymore. Am I depressed or something?


Combination of Colors

I can't believe it! I'm so late in putting up the tree compared to last year. I had it set up early October. I had a not so purple tree last year, and this year I decided to do a combination of colors for the ornaments. I combined red, purple, silver, and fuchsia. What do you think of the combination? Last year's was quite simple though, but this year it's quite colorful.


Panda Eyes

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

Let me ask you, until when can you hide those panda eyes? For a while, concealers would work, but it will come to a point that you can no longer hide it. Did you know that dark eye circle don't easily go away? It's not like having puffy eyes which can be remedied right away. But don't worry because I read somewhere that there are creams and treatments that get rid of dark eye circles. If you don't want to end up looking like a panda which is really embarrassing, start looking up remedies for it.


Affordable Eyeglasses

Monday, November 02, 2009

I recently bought eyeglasses for my son Josh. It was time to part with his old one. Had I known that there are available $8 Prescription Zenni Glasses, I should have ordered one for him. Where else can you find an 8 dollar prescription glasses, tell me! Oh it's not too late yet, did I tell you that I also wear eyeglasses? Everyone else in the family wears one. I should ask my daughter Ish to check these Holiday Fun Eyeglasses, I'm sure she'll be able to pick one for herself. Oh I totally forgot she now wears contact lenses, but from time to time she still wears glasses. She once told me that she no longer wishes to wear eyeglasses, but I reminded her that she needs to rest her eyes once in a while. She has to take a look at these New Arrivals too. Who knows she might come back to wearing glasses permanently.


Who Else is Sick?

Is it the time of the year? Seems like everyone else is getting sick. First my son, then daughter has cough and colds now. If not for the flu shots, maybe daughter Ish would have ended having flu. Should I say blame it on the weather? We've been having unpredictable weather lately. It gets cold in the evenings, then it gets really really hot when the sun is out. Then in between there is rain. My SIL and FIL were hospitalized too, in fact FIL is still there. I'm praying for God's healing touch for my FIL. Nothing is impossible since our Lord is a great healer.


It's Dead!

My laptop is dead and some important files and photos died with it. I know I didn't learn my lesson. This is not the first time it happened. I don't know but sometimes I just get lazy getting things done. It's not hard getting online backup come to think of it, but why? Why did I wait for it to happen the second time? I don't understand too, maybe I took things for granted, like it's not going to happen again. I don't know but I will be real silly if I don't do it this time.


Medical Malpractice

Monday, October 26, 2009

Do you believe that doctors can make mistakes? Maybe at that time when you needed their services it was farthest from your mind. All you are concerned about is getting well. We always rely on their services and they get our full trust once in a while. Little did we know that they are human and prone to commit mistakes. If that dreaded thing happens, you can always seek the help of a Bronx medical malpractice lawyer. Yeah there is such a thing as medical malpractice, and there is such a thing as lawyers who can help you out with this. Everyone should be held accountable for every wrong deed.


Poor Kid

My son is sick. He had fever last week on Sunday but was well already on Tuesday. I sent him to school on Wednesday just to make sure that no relapse is happening. Everything was alright until Friday night. He had fever again. I brought him to his pedia on Saturday, and some tests were done namely urinalysis and blood. This is to find out if he has Dengue. I'm a bit worried needless to say. Sometimes I am ashamed of myself to worry too much. It's as if I don't have a big God who is a great healer. I am going to get the results today, and am praying that it's nothing serious.


Weight Gain Problem

Monday, October 19, 2009

I know some of my friends are already tired listening to my weight gain stories. Some don't understand coz they don't really see it according to them. But to me, 15 lbs. is 15 lbs. Yep that's how much I've gained in a couple of months. People close to me say it's alarming. Mom notices the weight gain everytime I go visit her. Really I am bothered now, so let me just look at this weight loss product, who knows it might come in handy when I feel like I really need to do something about it aside from the exercise thingy.


My Cafe World

How can I stop FBing when there is yet another new game that I am addicted to. I know you know what I am talking about since most of us are hooked in these cool FB games. First, pet society, then came restaurant city, farmtown, farmville and now cafe world. What's next? I don't know, but this time I will not promise not to play coz I always end up eating my words. I am not complaining though, coz these games kept my mind from thinking of unthinkable things that is happening in my life. These games are still a blessing you know.


Feeling Winter

Monday, October 05, 2009

We are already in the BER months and it's gonna be cold soon. It's also during this months that I love to go up to Baguio. And it is also during this months that I can wear boots, haha. Oh there's one thing I enjoy too, staying by the outdoor fireplaces. I love the heat fireplaces provide and I find it kinda romantic too staying by a fireplace. Huh, am I dreaming? I wish I can do it this year again, but I don't know really. Things are just not the way they are right now, so I really doubt if this will push thru. Keeping my fingers crossed though.


Raise your Page Rank

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

I've actually given up on this website ranking thingy. It can get frustrating. I really do not understand how this thing works. You were once a 5 then all of a sudden you were slapped a zero. Frustrating right? Much as I want to raise my page rank again, I just don't have the correct resources to do so. I heard that paid web directories can really help you get back to where you once before, a higher than zero page rank that is. I will have to look into this since I really want my PR back so bad.


Help Needed

I think everyone knows what happened to the Philippines last Saturday. It's in the news, you can watch a lot of video in youtube too. It's devastating and it makes me cry watching scenes on the news. A lot of houses were wiped out, cars destroyed, and plenty homeless. It broke my heart seeing the aftermath on the day I first roamed the streets after the typhoon. When we got to GMA Kapuso Foundation to donate used clothing, I was holding back my tears...tears of joy that is. I saw boxes upon boxes of donations. It was overwhelming. But I know that more help is still needed. If in any way you can help, a penny will go a long way.


State to State

I wonder if there are still a lot of RV users in America. I have always wondered how it feels like living in one. I only see it on TV and the movies and it seems fun especially when you do cross country. There's really very minimal worries since there is a roadside assistance available. Yeah it would be a nice idea to travel in a RV across the country. It can actually save you more. Just a reminder to all RV users, is there someone who can assist you in case of emergency?


Safety First

Monday, September 21, 2009

I'm not really sure if we are so behind when it comes to industrial safety supplies . Whenever I pass by construction sites, I notice that not everyone is equipped with safety stuff. This is really very important and it is for the benefit of all the workers. As the signage reads, "Safety first." I wonder if they really have that in mind. I think they should since it is really not that expensive to buy industrial safety supplies as long as you know where to get it.



Saturday, September 19, 2009

I am playing FarmVille too. Gosh! The games you find in Facebook are really addicting. It eats up our time if we don't have discipline. Funny how I think about the crops that are about to expire or get rotten. It sucks when you can't get online. It's actually fun to play, you cultivate not only lands but your artistic side too. If you see all those farms in Facebook, you'll be amazed. It's really pretty. I'm going to make my farms as beautiful too. If it takes spending more time in FB I think I would, as I don't have the resources to buy coins, heh.


No To Acne

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

I am surprised and at the same time sad. My zits are popping out once more. I've controlled it already a couple of months back, but in the last two months it seemed like it has gone back, for good? Of course not. Before it gets ugly, I will look for the best acne treatments, one that can control it right away. I don't want to go back to that past experience of having acne, where people can hardly kiss you because of those ugly stuff. Yeah before it gets too late, and oh I might consult a dermatologist too and probably have my monthly facials. I think I've missed 2 months.


Free to Dream

I've always fancied a furnace. Nah I don't want one since we don't really need it. If I buy a property somewhere in Tagaytay or perhaps Baguio, then I might consider building one. One thing I have to keep in mind though, I should get these furnace filters. Are you wondering what that it for? It's for cleaner air. It filters dust, pollens, etc. Looks like I have to do some more reading on this, haha as if I can own a property to those two places I mentioned. It's free to dream right?


It's Chewy

Wednesday, September 09, 2009

I made those today. I say I because initially it was daughter's idea to bake. She sent me SMS when she learned that classes were suspended due to heavy downpour asking me if we could bake together. So I said yes. She did help with the hand mixer, but it was not even 2 minutes. She said she was tired, duh!

Anyway those are Chewy Oatmeal Choco Chip Cookie. And it's real chewy and yummy. It's not that sweet since I adjusted the measurement of the sugar, I didn't follow the one in the recipe book. Oh that's not the only one I did today, I also made stir fried noodles for merienda (snacks).


FB Status : I'm FAT

Friday, September 04, 2009

My status update in Facebook says, 110 lbs. and still counting. This is my heaviest, good if I stand 5'5", but the thing is that I'm a little over five feet tall. Nah, I'm lying, I'm like 5'3" and should be tipping the scale at 100 lbs. the most. That's the weight I am used to, well when I was a bit younger. Now that I'm a little older, I'm worried. I think I will have to do some reading on what weight loss pills are really working. I have a feeling that I might resort to this one day, if I really get lazy and don't exercise.


Driver of the Day

I am the designated driver of the day, oh make that a week already. I've been bringing the kids to school and I am enjoying every bit of it. Especially that I found out that there is an internet shop down the road. I can work while waiting for them, and at the same time I can do FB. Yeah it's fun, it's quite hot though but I can manage. There's a bit of a problem though, if the users here can't keep quiet, then I don't think I can stay here as often as I want to. I'd rather work at home, less stress.


Health Forums are Interesting

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

A lot of people are now conscious about their health. Well I've been conscious about my health too lately. I think the tendency is you get conscious about it as you grow older. Haha I just admitted that I am getting older, but not bad huh, I age with grace. That's what others a saying, alright? Anyways, there's this health forum that I've encountered lately while surfing the net. What I like about it is that they talk about natural and alternative ways of dealing with health problems. I went through some of the discussions and I find it interesting. People there talk about proper nutrition. I love the interaction since I am learning a lot of things just by reading. There are a lot of useful information, some I've heard of it for the first time. People share a recipe or two. I've actually found a few that I think might be able to help especially now that I am trying to lose some weight. I suggest you go check it out yourself so you have an idea of what I am talking about.


Affordable SD Cards

Monday, August 31, 2009

I remember having a 256, then it became a 512, then 1GB, and look now, and there's 16GB. I am talking about this particular sd card. Do you still remember how much it was sold in shops? It used to be really expensive. But look at how much they cost now? The price of a 256 is now the price of a 16GB, even lower I think. I want to have a 16GB so I can take unlimited shots. I don't need to download as often too. What do you think?


I Want Those Knives

Er...what is that knife for? Haha like I want to slit someone's neck, or do I? Seriously I don't wanna waste my time. Those knives are actually in my Wish List. Uh-huh I want to own that before I die. I don't want any ordinary knife especially now that I get to taste some sort of a culinary experience. Yep it must be the knife, those julienne cut are so accurate, haha!


Box from the US of A

Thursday, August 20, 2009

In a year, my sister in the US sends like four boxes to us. Contents include stuff for sale, and a few items for us. I also take the opportunity of requesting her to buy a few things for me, things that I can't find here, hehe mostly clothes. I'm a big fan of clothes, shoes, bags, makeup, etc., after all I'm a girl. I'm not sure though if she uses this shipping box, I have to ask her. You know sometimes her problem is to fill the whole box before she sends it over. I'm not sure if she knows about custom boxes. Hmmm, it's time to use skype and talk to them, after all I also miss them a lot.


Back To School

When MIL first heard of it, the first person that came into her mind was me. Well she admitted though that she wanted to take part in it too, but then her hands are full and she does not have the spare time for it. Anyway, I'm glad that I am a part of this. This is like a mobile school, a joint project of Quezon City under Ms. Joy Belmonte and ABS CBN. What are we learning? It's a dream come true for me, HOT and COLD kitchen. I'd like to think that this is a basic of what CULINARY ARTS is all about. It's actually exciting and I am surprised that I still have a lot to learn considering that I am the queen in our kitchen.


Are You Covered?

My SIL has been suggesting that I get a health insurance for the whole family. At first I was hesitant about it, but now I see the need for it. Who wouldn't want to get covered? What with the low cost health insurance being offered nowadays, it's now for everyone. I used to think that this would really take a great part in the budget, but when I browsed through some of the quotations, not bad after all. I can say we can afford it.


When It Breaks

Thursday, August 13, 2009

When some appliances in the house break, what comes to mind first? Hhhmm, if it's minor, have it fixed. What if it's the motor that breaks? First thing that will come to mind is buy a new one. Yeah, because it has always been at the back of my mind that it will turn out more expensive having to replace motors and all. Well not anymore especially when I came to know the price of this central vacuum motor. The idea of having to replace it with a new one have changed. I'm not talking about vacuum in general, but thanks to the idea anyway.


My Beloved President

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

I was so sad upon learning the demise of my beloved President Cory Aquino. I have half expected it, but still. Anyway I was able to pay my last respect on a Monday, the first day of her wake at Manila Cathedral. The experience was all worth it despite the pouring of the rain. I am definitely proud that I was there and already a part of Philippine history. I was able to condole with her son Noynoy too (unexpectedly). He went out to thank the filipino people who sympathized with their family. As what I've written in that tarpaulin, President Cory, you will always be in my ♥


It's Free...Why Not?

Friday, July 24, 2009

Who does not want a good website ranking? My other website used to have a page rank of 5, then it went down to 0, well I'm glad it did not get n/a, heh. Anyways, I'm looking into this free seo service I came across while surfing the net. It's free and it does not hurt to try. Why do I need to pay when there are free ones being offered? Like I said it does not hurt to try. I really look forward for my websites to figure out in the google's ranking like they used to, so I'd do anything...for free that is.


How She's Grown!

Meet Ish, my lovely daughter! That's how she looks now and is already in her last year in High School. She is now preparing for her college entrance exams and is doing her best to get into one of the best universities here in the Philippines.

I just love my relationship with her, she is my bestest friend. I can tell her anything and she can tell me anything too. I call it the best Mom-Daughter relationship. She does not think twice whether or not she will tell me what and how she feels, she is just open to me and I love her for that. I often remind her that it's best to tell me everything so I can guide her and remind her of things that are not really clear to her. Probably the reason why she can tell me everything is that I'm not an imposing Mom. I give suggestions, but in the end she still makes the decision. I'm just glad that she is guided by God with the decisions that she makes.


Acne Alert!

It's in the blood...genes...I'm talking about acne. I used to have it when I was younger, in my early twenties. My father had it too, now my son has it. I wonder if Pronexin would help control my son's acne. I'm really bothered because it's getting worst. I brought him to the dermatologist and will have to wait for the result after a few treatments. Then maybe I will have to find some acne treatment to prevent it from coming back.


Uh Oh

Thursday, July 23, 2009

Seriously I can't believe that I haven't updated this blog. It's been more than 2 weeks I guess, tsk tsk tsk. What's happening to me? Honestly I don't know...come on...of course I know. I just needed to sort things out, and I didn't know that it will take this long. Nope it's not settled yet, but I am trusting the Lord that He will solve it for me. It's only Him who can do miracles and I fully put my trust in Him. All I need to do now is focus on myself...probably do a few new things, concentrate on my blogs, knit some more, etc. Anything to keep me busy in other words.


Look Who's Playing!

Thursday, July 09, 2009

When I went to visit my Mom last Sunday, I saw one of my nieces play the piano. I didn't know that my Mom hired a piano teacher for her. She started about two weeks ago and I can see her progress. I might consider getting her some piano sheet music so she can learn to play more songs. There are actually a lot of good choices, so yeah might get some for myself too, after all I already miss playing the piano. I have all the time in this world to start loving music again.


Doll Domination

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

Initially it was just Ish and her aunt who's going to watch the concert. Ish was given the go signal to purchase the tickets and I accompanied her to buy it. There I decided that I wanted to watch too. Good thing Ish's Dad was kind enough to buy me a ticket. I'm glad I did even if we were located somewhere at the back where all you can see are heads of the people who came to watch the concert. Ish kept saying she has height issues. I had height issues too, but I came in my 5 inch heel. Don't worry it didn't kill my toes, I love wedge after all. Sound system was not so good, probably because I was used to watching foreign artists bringing with them their own band. There was even a time that I thought Nicole did a lip sync.


75% OFF!

Saturday, June 13, 2009

When I see something like this, do you want to know what comes to mind? Yeah, I want to have another baby. But at my age, it's just so impossible. I guess I will just wait ten to fifteen years for a grandchild. Oh no I don't want to think about it yet, my eldest daughter is only 15. Haha, this is what beautiful Baby Bedding can do. My imagination runs wild. But seriously, I wish I was able to find this beautiful bedding when I had my babies. Well not that my bedding was crap, it was actually beautiful too, but not as beautiful as what you see in the picture. It was not even complete. I had like what a 4-piece set? But this one is a twelve piece set, super complete. It's 100 percent cotton, very soft, something that will make your baby sleep comfortably. Look, I have some good news for you. If you happen to check, you'd surely be happy to find out that there is a 75 percent off sale that is going on. That's going to be a lot of savings and a great deal in itself. Remember you are buying one of the highest if not the highest quality handmade baby crib bedding set. This 12 piece set will make your nursery look all the more beautiful. It looks fancy and yet the price is just a fraction, can you beat that?


Asbestos Can Cause Cancer

Sunday, June 07, 2009

Have you heard about this kind of cancer? If not Mesothelioma cancer cells are normally found surrounding the vital organs. This type of cancer is actually caused by exposure to asbestos. I actually didn't know that asbestos can be harmful until I came across an article about it. I'm sure not many of us know about this too. Some people just do not educate us on this, and I also heard that some where not given the proper gear nor were they informed that exposure to asbestos can cause cancer in the long run. If one of in your family is a victim of this, there are websites that can help you with this matter.


Dream Come True

Yeah it's a dream come true...welcome to my cyber restaurant! It's going to be cyber at the moment. Maybe I have to wait a few more years...that is if my son does not change his mind. It's actually our dream to put up a restaurant someday.

Oh going back to restaurant city...have you played this famous game over at FB? It's really fun and quite addicting as well. You want proof? I created another FB account just to have additional ingredients, haha. Just like Pet Society, I'm hooked. Actually there's one more game I'm playing, and it's nice too. Maybe I'll just share it with you in another entry, and of course I'll be posting photos too.


Guilty As Charged

Friday, June 05, 2009

Why is it that sometimes people get lazy when it comes to daily exercise? I am guilty beyong reasonable doubt. I'm only good at the first few days of the program, after which I have excuses here and there not to exercise. Some people suggest that I use a fat burner supplement since I am not really religious in the exercise routine thingy. I don't know but I might just consider it one day when I feel the need to. It could be anytime soon if I don't stop munching on all the food served before me. It's hard to go into fitness too with the kind of weather we have...very conducive to eating and sleeping. Dang!


Kitchen Sinks

Thursday, June 04, 2009

So there's a new trend when it comes to kitchen sink? Just what is this zero radius sinks? This are also called angular sink and is 10 inches deep. This sink has been getting good reviews plus the fact that a lot of the customers are happy with the company's customer service. Absolutely no waiting time since they ship the following day provided there is an available stock. If you're looking into buying kitchen sink, you might want to consider this zero radius sink.


The Creative Me

I'm excited to see my work...yep the one you see on the photos, incorporated in th gown of Nelson's niece. She'll be celebrating her 18th birthday and I volunteered to do the beadwork of her gown to make it all the more beautiful. I have not seen the finished product but according to the Mom of the debutante, it's really beautiful. I was the one who picked the design of both the gown and the cocktail dress and I accompanied them too to buy the fabric at Divisoria. Now I'm thinking, what am I in my past life?


Vacation Places

What's so special about the US? Seems like everyone wants to visit this place. My kids, well including me always think of this place when it's vacation time. I've been there once, my daughter has been there twice, but we still want to go back. If given the chance, we're thinking of visiting other states and hopefully stay at one of the Outer Banks rentals. I've seen the place online and I'd like to stay there in one of our vacations. It seems like the perfect vacation place, close to the beach. The houses for rent count a lot too, they are really beautiful and would make each and every stay relaxing.


Rugs Galore

Monday, June 01, 2009

If our budget permits, I want to purchase more rugs. I don't know but I really have this fascination for rugs. My last purchase was a persian rug, and that was like how many years ago. This time I was thinking of buying an oriental rug. I was salivating on these rugs I found online. And now I can't decide which one to pick, an oriental rug or a persian rug. All are gorgeous actually and they are quite affordable. It even offers free shipping. I think I'm gonna save up for this because I didn't only pick one but four.


Here I Come!

It's Fashion Week once again and we had the chance to go and see it. Ish was really glad that she was able to join us this time, coz she wasn't able to watch last year's Fashion Week because of school. She was like, "Mom, I want that designer to do my gown when I turn 18." She has good taste, she picked a couple of gowns she wants to wear. I especially enjoyed Lyle Ibanez's collection, nope I wasn't able to take photos so I can't show you some of his collection. I can compare his designs to that of Marc Jacobs. Man he's really good. I love intricate beadworks of Michael Cinco's designs too.


The Trusted Brand

Saturday, May 30, 2009

I am satisfied with my Kohler kitchen sinks. What I have at home is the double bowl kitchen sink. I've known about this brand for about 12 years now because this was the kind of sink we used in house number 1. I didn't try and look for another brand when we built house number 2 since I was already ok with it. Sometimes I just don't like to explore other brands simply because I don't want to end up spending more. I don't really mind using the same brand over and over again as long as they come up with new designs each time.


Mesothelioma Info

Once I hear something new, I will immediately look into it. I am especially interested in health topics. Anything I can do to keep myself and my family healthy. When I first heard about mesothelioma, I looked it up. I found out that this is a form of cancer caused by asbestos. There are a lot of information you can get about this kind of cancer so in the future it can be avoided. To people who's been afflicted with this, you will also find relevant information regarding this type of cancer online. It pays to be updated, and everything is readily online.


Family Portrait

It may sound funny but yeah we seldom have our photos taken as a family. Ironic right? To think that we are in the photography business. It's really my desire to sit out and have a pictorial one day. I don't like the kids to submit one and the same family photo in school each year. I demand for an official family portrait anytime soon. If you happen to see a lot of individual photos here, those are self taken portraits, yeah the one that you look silly taking your own photo. You see a lot of that everywhere, so it does not look silly anymore. It's a you agree?


Visit Vegas

Included in my list of places to visit in this lifetime (oh I don't like to say before I die) is Las Vegas. Luckily that dream has been realized. And what can I say? The place is just awesome. I highly recommend you include Vegas vacations in your itinerary. There's just so much to see and do there. I have yet to hear somebody go to Vegas and not like it. Or am I waiting for the impossible? Hey even my kids at a very young age enjoyed our stay at Vegas. Don't forget to put Vegas in your list ok?


Gym At Home

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Exercise! It's very important for the body. It keeps us fit. There are a lot of benefits we get when we have our regular fitness thing. I know most of us don't have the time to go to the gym. That was my problem too, so I thought of making a mini gym at home. I have two equipments already and I'm looking into these ellipticals I saw online. I want to take advantage of the big sale being offered plus free shipping. Rarely can you find such great deals online.


Pet Society

Almost everyone I know play Pet Society. I love this game a lot and there's one more I like too, it's called Restaurant City. You'll often find me online at Facebook just to play these games. It's addicting, it's therapy for me too, a cure for boredom. So this is what keeps me busy nowadays. Oh if you want to add me for extra coins and ingredients, go ahead and pm me.


My Task

Friday, May 22, 2009

As I was saying in one of my entries, I have been completely bothered by the weight I'm putting on. I have been exercising, but not too much though. I get lazy just thinking about it. Like one of my friends, she finds exercising more like a chore. I know it shouldn't be that way, but hey I think it's normal to think that way. It's not an easy job after all. For now, I am putting on hold this diet pill, but who knows anytime soon if I really get frustrated and want to go back to my ideal weight, I might try that on.


Soy Candles, Anyone?

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

As much as possible, I'd like to go all natural in my household. Since the husband is fond of lighting candles in our room, I'm taking a look at these Soy Candles. I am not really familiar with it, but based on what I read it can last like 3 times longer than the ordinary candles we have at home. I also read that it burns cleaner. Hhmm, maybe I should stock on these kind of candle as there are wholesale soy candles available, of course at a much lower price since you are getting by bulk. Nowadays a lot of us are thinking of ways on how to save money. Every single centavo counts and we have to be wise in the kind of spendings that we do.

I am hoping to see soy votives in the parties we go to, or whenever we have wedding coverages. I think everyone is now aware of the benefits of using soy wax.


Let's Exercise!

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

Eversince I stopped smoking in January of this year, I gained something like 10-14 lbs. I used to be around 94-96 lbs. and guess what? I'm now 108. My Mom likes it, and I guess a few more people like it too. They say that I look healthier now. I couldn't agree more! But, the thing is I hate my flabs especially in the tummy area. It's really bulging and I can barely fit in my size 0 jeans. This pushed me to do my daily exercise and I'm following the vid that you see above. She has all the exercises I need for my different body parts. Now, shall we?


The Climb

Friday, May 01, 2009

We had a great time at the Great Wall. It was sooo cold when we got there, sort of freezing (only to us who is not used to this kind of climate - spring). Looking at how much I was gonna climb to reach the first beacon, I was becoming lazy already. At the back of my mind, I just couldn't make it. It was actually a long climb and it was darn high! Do you want to know what changed my mind? I saw a lot of senior citizens (read:old people) climb and here I am, like half their age and unable to climb. OMG what a shame! Anyways I did it, and when I got to the top (1st beacon), I was perspiring like crazy, yeah I forgot how cold it was. It felt good having to climb and it made me purchase this proof (a brass thingy) that indeed I was "man" enough to climb the Great Wall of China.


Mostly Positive Reviews

Thursday, April 16, 2009

What's your take on nuphedra? I actually know nothing about it until I read this nuphedra review. According to the review it has helped a lot of people lose weight already. To date it is the most consistent diet pill when it comes to sales. Most people who have used it only have nice things to say about this diet pill. I also heard that most people who have used this never tried using other products. One piece of advise though, before considering using this product, please consult your doctors first.


Tiananmen Square

I was excited to see Tiananmen Square, not for anything else but I remembered this being controversial back in 1989. I know most of you have heard about the protest that began on the 14th of April.

Our tour guide Mae never mentioned about the protest, but instead she said that Tiananmen Square is the biggest square in the world. I know, no one really wants to remember that incident where over 2000 people died.

Tiananmen Square is located in the heart of Beijing. I was really amazed to see lots and lots of people, mostly Chinese. I then asked our tour guide how come I see a lot of Chinese people. She then mentioned that majority of them come from the provinces, and it's everyone's dream is to go to Beijing. Ah no wonder, they are tourists in their own land.


Online Insurance Quote

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

I love the internet! Admit it or not, it can make life a little easier to many of us. When you need something, chances are you will be able to find it when you surf the net, insurance quote included. There is actually no need to travel to go to offices and inquire about stuff. Almost everything can now be done using the internet. I like it because it does not only allow us to save money, but to save on time as well. Both are really important.


iPhone Accessories I'd Love to Have

I found a lot of iphone accessories that I need. I haven't really enjoyed my iPhone that much because I didn't have all the accessories that I needed. For one, I cannot even use it to listen to music while I'm in the car. I need to buy this accessory that would allow me to listen and at the same time charge my iPhone. Oh there's also one accessory I found which I think the whole family will enjoy. It's the headphone splitter and I'm gonna buy one. Now the problem is, whose iPod or iPhone should we use?


Lunch at Tagaytay City

Josh doing the LOL!

We went to Tagaytay on Good Friday to have lunch. Surprisingly there was not much traffic along South Super Highway. I was not expecting traffic to be this light because compared to the previous years where there was really much traffic. Good thing my SIL made reservations, if not we would be able to have lunch maybe at half past two. Yeah there were a lot of people waiting outside the restaurant when we got there. Much as we wanted to spend more time and talk over lunch, we couldn't afford to do that in consideration with the others who were waiting outside. It was a good trip though it would have been nicer if we were able to drop by Java Jazz, our favorite coffee shop.


Micro SD for Mobile Phones

Sunday, April 12, 2009

If not for the micro sd that I have, I would have ran out of beautiful photos. I am talking about our China trip. Good thing I brought with my mobile phone, so I was a bit relaxed. It could very well work as an alternative when I ran out of memory in my digital camera. What I love about having a bigger external phone memory is that I can store music and numerous photos. I don't want to be limited, so I am really very happy that some companies have come up with sd cards. Amazing what technology can do to make life more enjoyable.


My Kind of Fitness

Saturday, April 11, 2009

I am interested in this Kettlebell workout I found online. Imagine you only spend 20 minutes three times a week, that makes just an hour a week of workout. Now I want to do their 6 week body transformation program. As I mentioned in my other blogs, I gained something like 10 pounds when I quit smoking some three months ago. I really need to keep my body fit. I am not getting any younger. I want to maintain the kind of body I have, not much for aesthetic side but health wise though. I think this is the kind of program I need since I get easily bored doing long fitness routines. It looks cool and fun to me.


4th Good Friday Thing

On with the Good Friday tradition. I nearly forgot about it, well honestly I forgot about it. Good thing Cuz didn't. She sent me sms to remind me about this tradition. This is the 4th already. We have new members...Ish my daughter and Queenie, Cuz's daughter. This time Nelson and Diego(our dog) did not join us. What a bummer! Anyways, we still enjoyed and will look forward to the next good friday thing.


Online Insurance Quote

I just love that almost everything is readily available online. It's actually more convenient and time saving. Not only that, it actually saves us money too. Now there is no need to go out of the house just to get insurance quotes. There is an online auto insurance quote available whenever you need one. For me it's more convenient that you get information instantly. With this, you can compare prices easily and decide right away which one suits your needs.


Sleep Number Beds

Honestly it's my first time to come across this sleep number bed. At first I was like...what? I really didn't have any idea what it was. Beds have numbers now? Haha, why am I ignorant at times? Anyways, now that I know about it, it makes me want to have one. Not that I am not comfortable with the bed that we have at home, I just want to try and experience what other people are saying about how comfortable it is to lie down and sleep on a sleep number bed.


Still Waiting

How do you like my nail art? I saw this design in one of my nail art magazines. I just copied the design and did my best so it would look like the one in the magazine. I think I did quite well, but it's still a little messy. Hopefully when the set of nail polish I ordered from ebay arrives, I will be able to do more justice to the designs I copy. I am so excited already. Can't wait to change the design on my nails now, after all it's been what? two weeks?

Can't wait to get hold of all these nail polish. I won't change brushes now when I do my nail art, because each of the tube comes with this special brush that is easier to manage.


Free Shipping Offer

Are you familiar with Let me tell you that almost everything you need is already there. I frequent this website a lot and I found out that it's not just computers and electronics they sell, they also sell shoes, apparel, toys, etc. I want you to take a look at their sale items. It's really very affordable, plus they don't charge anything for shipping. In other words, shipping is free. Not all online shops can do this, so take advantage of it.


I Love San Diego

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

If you have plans of visiting the US, please include San Diego in your itinerary. I've been there in 2005 and I can say I like the place. Too bad we didn't have time to explore the whole place. I didn't get to see much, but with the little that I saw, I really appreciated the place. I find it scenic, with all the greens and everything. I promised myself that the next time I'll go visit the US, I'll make sure that I will definitely visit San Diego again. There are a lot of affordable San Diego CA hotel around, well that is if my friend cannot accommodate me.

The Right Investment

I do remember what my father-in-law said in one of our conversations. I think the reason why he knew so much about it is because he has been constantly monitoring it's price once in his lifetime. It was his business and I remember him telling me that the price of gold will never go down even if all the prices of commodities have gone down already. He even mentioned that if we have plans of investing in case we have extra money to do so, it's wise to always invest in gold. True enough if you check on the price of gold nowadays, we can still say that it is competitive even if our economy is at it's lowest. The price has really never reached rock bottom, rather it has maintained. Now if some of you are interested in investing in coins, gold or silver, is the website to go to. They have been in the business for some 30 years already and right now they are the world leader in precious metals.


One Day to Go

Friday, March 06, 2009

Just one more day left, tomorrow Saturday. Come Monday kids are already off school. Yeah, summer vacation for them already. Ooopsie, not for Ish though, coz she is not officially off school. Monday will be the start of her college entrance review and it will run until the end of the month. She'll be off Grace the whole of April but half of it will be spent at MSA for the other college entrance review. Poor Ish, quite hectic for the summer. Josh is already know why. Stress-free as he calls it. He can play video games the whole day. Oh wait, I need to include fitness in his schedule. Good he agreed to use the treadmill everyday, for 30 minutes at least.


The Sexy SleepWear

Thursday, February 26, 2009

Haha I can't imagine myself wearing a babydoll nightie. But it looks cool ha, maybe someday I will wear one. I don't know why I am not used to wearing one, probably because I'm a shorts and tee person. Yeah that's what I wear when I sleep. But I think it would be a good idea to use nighties once in a while, you feel like a girl or something. Haha, I might end up having another way!!! at 43? oh NO!


Smoking Update

Haha maybe I should consider taking this Solo Slim already. If this is the only one that can put a stop to my cravings then I should consider taking. I am really scared now, if I don't put a stop to all these I might end up fat one of this days which I don't really like. Just thinking about it makes me shiver. I don't know why or what made me indulge in eating, I know it's a bad habit. I've been there before and I was able to put a stop to it. Maybe it's because I quit smoking, so that explains all the eating. What do you think?


Bulaklak (Flower) : Litratong Pinoy

Tila ito ay tumatago, siguro sobrang init na init.

Tuwing aking kaarawan or Vee day, walang paltos akong nakakatanggap ng rosas mula sa aking esposo.

Di ko alam ang pangalan ng bulaklak na ito, pero kakaiba talaga sya

Isa sa pinakapaborito kong kunan ay mga bulaklak. Maswerte ako dahil di nako lalayo pa para magkaron ng mga shots ng bulaklak. Ang mga bulaklak na yan kuha ko sa yard ng aking ina. Mahilig sya maghalaman. Pinapadalhan sya ng mga buto ng sari saring bulaklak ng aking mga kapatid na nasa US. So far tumubo naman lahat ng mga ito.


I Should Stop the Food Trip

A lot have noticed that I really gained weight. My belly dancing teacher was the one who told me that I was indeed putting on weight. I was in denial for quite a bit because I hate to hear it. But of course I knew that I put on weight, I can feel and I can see it. I think I put on something like 8 pounds and if I don't stop binging on food, I might need to look for an effective diet product. Yeah I am not kidding, I need to cut on my food intake if I don't want to end up being a "biggie".


The Engineer in the Family

My father-in-law have been in the construction business for quite some time now. Through the years, he has been able to purchase all the necessary equipments used in building houses. He has a pool of workers, and he just hires an architect to do the drawing. He is personally supervising the construction. He takes care of all the supplies including the very important industrial clamps. It really amazes me how he is able to understand everything, to think that he is not even an engineer. I can say that everything is based on self study and experience.


Coastal Scents Palette

You can call it my latest addiction. I first heard about Coastal Scents from Krisa. I think she saw it in one makeup tutorial she watched at Youtube. She liked it so much and was convinced that the product is really nice. One consideration is the price too. Imagine for an 88 pc eyeshadow palette, it costs me only P1,100 which is a little over $21.95 which is the current market price of this product in the US. I already bought 2, the 88 pc eyeshadow palette and the 78 pc combination eyeshadow/blush palette. I've used it a couple of times already and I was able to convince my dancing buddies (well not really convince since they saw the effect on my face) to purchase it. Good thing it is available here in the Philippines from some ebayer, so it's not a problem. Now I'm searching for very good brushes. I want those MAC brushes but I just can't afford it. I'm trying to find a very good alternative though. I wish we had Loew Cornell brushes here coz I heard from those youtubers that they are really good.


A Piece of Art

Monday, February 23, 2009

When I saw these tv stands I got excited and at the same time sad. I want to pick from that collection but I don't think it's feasible at the moment because we don't need one. But really I love all the designs that I saw. I was even seeing a picture of it sitting in this part of our house, oh no why am I imagining things. It only goes to show that I am in love with the pieces that I saw. It's something that I really want to put in the house. It's a piece of art, not just a tv stand.


Eyeglasses at $8

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

Photobucket < = = Yeah that is part of the Prescription eyeglasses for only $8! collection. Can you believe it? At first I couldn't, well at least not today when everyone else is experiencing the blow of the economy. But it is true, they have not increased their prices. Most of their eyeglasses are still priced at $8. Now that's what you call Seeing Straight Without Breaking Bank. No need to withdraw from your savings account just to be able to buy a pair of eyeglasses. Now that is a big help to our budget. Ah no wonder a lot of people are talking about Zenni. The others are even surprised and would say Zenni Optical in the New York Times?! Why not? This are the companies worth to be featured.


My Ninang

I do feel awkward when chosen to be among the principal sponsors. They are actually my third "godcouple" whatever and however you may call it. I stood as one of their principal sponsors last Sunday at Plaza Ibarra. It's actually my first time to meet them so I feel honored that I was chosen. The bride is the daughter of my husband's bike trainor. Such sweet couple. I was short of crying when it was the groom's turn to say his vows. He actually cried and I was touched. For me it only shows his undying love and sweet intentions to the bride. To Jep and Lhet, wishing you unending marital bliss!
