Gift Giving

Today I'm making a list of stuff to give this Christmas. I'm also saving money each payday to be used when I shop for gifts. I plan to buy gifts during the thanksgiving sale. I plan to buy
digital frame for my parents in the Philippines. I've been sending them pictures of my children and they love it so much that if they could just put them all in the frames, they will do it. I believe that if they will go digital, they will have a blast with the pictures.

Saved By My Angel

While I was brushing my teeth in our bedroom bathroom, all of sudden the light bulb fell right in front of me and it got stuck in the faucet. I was so scared and ran away from the sink. I was worried the other light bulb might fell too.I called my husband to check it out. He checked it out but we haven't replaced it yet since I decided to upgrade our bathroom lighting. I shop around and found some that are really nice at LightOutlet. As soon as my husband got a day off we will take care of this. I don't want that incident to happen again. I was just saved by my angel that time. It just horrified me to think what if the bulb exploded in my face.

Christmas Party

Our yearly Christmas party will be on December 19, 2009 at the Del Norte Fairground, Arts and Crafts Bldg. The Filipinos with their family and friend get together to celebrate the spirit of the holiday season. We have programs, games and entertainments provided by one of the best DJ here in town. You can wear semi-formal or casual attire. Last year, my husband wore a Filipino Barong and he won as the gentleman of the night. Some of my friends are planning to wear gowns, tuxedos and barong this year. So I'm sure it's gonna be fun and festive.

I hope the weather today is not as bad as yesterday. It really saddens me when I have to bring Sophie and Eric with when I drop and pick-up Steph and Bianca to and from school especially in a bad weather. I just don't have other options. My friends are always telling me to just call them if I need help but I'm just so shy. If I can do it on my own I will do it. If I don't have no choice that's the time I'll be asking for help.

Calm And Quiet

This is the result of the character test I took in facebook.

calm and quiet

you are the sort of person who likes to take life slowly... just one day at a time.. you usually know the difference between right and wrong. you believe in yourself. you put yourself in other peoples shoes and see how it feels to be them and then handle a situation accordingly.your attitude towards life is very positive.... you are liked by all and are a great friend.the flip side is that sometimes you care too much about other people and don't do what you really wanna do..

I'm sure my husband will beg to disagree :-)

Travel Deals

Is Summer really over?Sadly, it is here in our place because it's been raining and storming lately. We don't even get the chance to have a real vacation like going to Disneyland.We're just a have a lot things going on; new baby, moving and many more things. But still I keep on checking out on some travel deals for my friends. They're just so busy too that they have time to browse in the Internet. Well, for some who still plans to have a vacation before the year ends, how about going to Univerlsal Orlando because right now you can save on your logging because there are cheap hotels orlando available that can save you big bucks. It's worth checking out.

Lack Of Sleep More Pimples

I noticed when I don't have enough sleep for a couple of days, pimples start showing up in my face. They are irritating. That's why I immediately apply acne treatments to prevent them from getting worst. My face is so sensitive. When I was just a teenager, I'm suffering from severe pimples and it's embarrassing. I don't want it to happen again. When I saw signs of acne I treated them immediately and thankfully they disappear in just a matter of time. Taking care of our skin is really important because if you know how to take care of yourself that means you know how to take care of other people.

Dental Appointment

***at the doctor's office waiting area**
Today is Steph and Eric's dental appointment. It's been six months since their last appointment. Steph was really good because she loves going to the dentist. And I'm so proud because she don't have cavities and according the dentist she has perfect teeth. With Eric, the dental assistant wasn't able to take an Xray of his teeth because he cried and she don't want to traumatized him. But she was able to clean his teeth and the dentist put fluoride in his teeth because there are signs of thinning of the enamel in his front teeth. I was advised not to give him a lot of juices. I didn't tell them that I'm also giving him soda but that has to stop because I don't want him to suffer from toothache.

Conversationalist

A conversationalist is a person who is good in talking or who enjoy talking. I love to talk and I can tell that people enjoy listening to me or maybe sometimes...but in my own language or mix Taglish, meaning Tagalog and English. I'm not very fluent in English. If I am, I would venture in
insurance marketing because it's a fun carrier. You get to talk to people who can be annoying or attentive in listening to you. Then it's a great accomplishment when you're able to close a deal. This is the kind of job that doesn't require much effort other than honesty and talent in conversing.

Uniquely Crafted

We went to Hiouchi last Wednesday to visit my Ate Rowena. She has a very nice house up in the mountain. It's ten minutes drive from Crescent City although the road going has lots of curves and narrow but still it's worth the drive because you can see the beautiful Redwood trees. The main reason I visited her because I want to see her projects like quilts, bonnets, scarves and a lot more. They are so nice. In fact she's going to exhibit them next week in a craft show here in our town. I really like her handmade projects, very nice for gift giving. In fact, I'm gonna make her own website where she can post her finished products so people can see them and hopefully will buy too. I'm hoping to finish the website soon so I can submit it to a directory listing to boost the traffic. I really want to do this for her because she's a nice lady and always willing to help. So hopefully next week when I got an ample time I will take pictures of her finished projects.

No Electricity No Internet

It's been raining here since Sunday. The wind has blown a lot of leaves and you can see debris everywhere. When I dropped Bianca off in the school last Tuesday, I was driving so slow because I couldn't barely see the road. I don't really hate the rain and storm, it's just that when I got home there was no electricity and there's no Internet. It's worst when the Internet is out especially to me that I spend most of my free time online doing Farmtown, doing comparison shopping for products that we need in the house, looking for insurance online for my friends who don't have insurance , and keeping in touch with families and friends. I hope that during Winter Internet won't be out all the time.

Korean Dresses







It's been awhile that I haven't shop for myself. I'm trying to save money for the Thanksgiving sale. Having 4 kids in the house, encourages me to be practical and think twice first before spending.But when I saw these clothes in the multiply site of my friend Rose, I can't resist from buying because they're so cute and unique. I can't wait till my orders will be here next week. I hope that the dresses are as nice as in the pictures.

Slowing Down

I feel bad because I haven't visited my favorite blogger' site. I just got so very busy. I almost don't have time to turn on my laptop.But I need to keep my blog moving because I want to keep it active. I love my blog. I will always update this although not as often as before. I'm happy because even though I'm not super active,my google rank is still fine. The traffic is not slowing down pretty bad. I'm planning to have my website register in a free directory so that I'll be getting more traffic.
Today is Bianca's birthday party so I'm very busy because we have a party for her. She wanted it to be a custom party that's why she's wearing the Wonder girl custom that I bought for her that she's suppose on Halloween. But oh well it's her birthday so she can do whatever she wanted.The party went great. She got tons of toys but of course the best gift is from her grandpa, a nice BMX bike. She told me that it's the best party ever.I'm happy to hear that.

Clean Up Time

Today, we spent most of our time cleaning the house.My husband was cleaning and waxing the furniture. And I cleaned the bedrooms. Eric got his new bed. We moved his toddler bed to our bedroom because until now he still sleep with us. I'm hoping that now that he have a twin bed he will finally decide to sleep in his own bedroom. After cleaning the bedrooms I cleaned our kitchen which is not that hard because our counter top are made of tile and they are not hard to clean. So today is a productive day for all of us because we have accomplished what we have planned to do.

Contentment

Contentment

Some people have almost have it all, but they're not still contented. The craving for more than what they have,more than what they possess is unstoppable. Is it because we're just human?
One dream of having a simple, nice house, but when she got it already, she want to have a mansion. One just dream of having a vehicle for work, but when she have already she ambitioned to have a corvette. From simple things to complicated. Why is that sometimes people who just dream of achieving the things that can provide their necessities turns out to become a luxurious one.?

There are times that life became so comfortable for us, we forgot the real meaning of happiness. We thought we are happy when we are able to buy the latest designer clothes, the nicest shoes ever or the most expensive purse. Real happiness is when you are able to help somebody who are in need. When we help somebody without asking in return or even sharing our blessings in silence. Now if we do that, that's the time can feel the real happiness. When we are truly happy we are contented.

Food Business

Since Sept. 1, I haven't really got the chance to cook Filipino foods because I'm too busy. When I'm hungry I just eat whatever is available in the fridge. I couldn't believe that I can actually last a day without eating rice. I always eat rice everyday. But now that I'm too busy it doesn't bother me anymore. When I'm starving during lunch I just go to Chomper's Deli and eat Pastrani Sandwich. Chomper's is own by my friend Celly. She started this business for couple of years already and she's doing really great. Food business is a really good source of income.Just put your heart in it, make your place inviting and clean. Use POS systems. And of course, offer the best food.
