PBB Double UP Addicted

>> 11/30/2009



Oh yes! I have been addicted to this reality show, that I could spend up many hours without getting sleepy watching the live streaming online. DH even told me that he could hear me giggle even he’s asleep already or should I say I woke him up with my laughs and giggles while watching PBB, Oh well, I just couldn’t get off with Melai’s funny antics and of course the Melason tandem inside the house. There will be another upcoming storm coming into Big brother's house and  as expected, there will be new twists and turns that is going to happen to the housemates.

Paskuhan sa Tiger City 2009

>> 11/24/2009

The lighting of Giant Christmas tree was held last Monday @ 6:30 pm. Mandaluyong City Hall. The place is just a 5 minute walk away from our home and so DH and kids waited for me to arrive from the office and we all headed to the area. Kids were giddy happy to see the lights. There were lots of people who witnessed the lighting. All in all, nothing new from last years design , but there are added stalls in line of tiangges that offers goodies like clothes, toys plus lots of food stalls. There were even rides too.

Clean Slate

I love my new template now. So fresh and clean! hope I can come up with a nice header that will suit this blog's theme. It took me a week before I decided to go with this template since choosing from tons of very nice templates is quite a task already. ahaha. Some widgets are still missing since I am not yet done tinkering this theme yet. I need to update my other blogs too. Will share on my next post the photos I took last night during the lighting of Giant Christmas tree in Mandaluyong City Hall. Kids were so amazed at the colorful Christmas lights dressed on the different departments building of the city hall. There are different themes of Christmas Belen plus rides and tiangges are everywhere too.

Home Schooling

>> 11/20/2009

Education is very important in our life. Learning is a continuous process even outside the school, it is considered as one most prized possession a person could ever had for it cannot be stolen from you. It will always reflect upon you on how you react at certain things. That's why I always told my brother who is loosing interest on his studies to hang on and be more patient with it for hew will reap the fruits of his labor in due time. He had stopped going to school but we're encouraging him to try homeschooling if he doesn't want to go to university schools anymore. I know the feeling since I have experienced quitting school back then due to stress , etc. But am glad I have overcome them all and faced the challenges of school life.

He had inquired on the homeschooling curriculum that he wants to get and I think that he will be more focus this time and won't feel tight stress this time for he could even attend for other activities like a part time job while doing the curriculum online. There are few good offers at the wherein their mission to "provide alternative educational options, designed to improve the academic preparation, achievement and general well being of non-traditionally oriented elementary, middle and high school age students." definitely gives the out of school youth children to continue and pursue their studies for a brighter future ahead of them .


All Grown Up

Just couldn't help but feel a bit emotional looking at my kids and see how far how they have become from being so fragile from my arms few years back. They are now starting to build and become more independent as days passed by. Gabby is now doing great as far as her studies is concerned, She can now read well and do her assignments with minimal supervision from me unlike before where I almost loose my temper teaching her. lol. Now, I will ask her to read the instructions and explain further what to do and she'll happily do all the works by here own. Nicco on the other hand, haven't given signs of him being ready for the school next year. He still wants to play around and is developing the habit of hitting her Ate Gabby and sometimes his Dad and I whenever he is annoyed and I don't want him to get used to it. We are trying ways on how we could avoid or let him not do that and it really stresses me. Raising kids is definitely not easy, but getting hugs and kisses from them eases the tired and stress from an all day work.


Feeling Low Today

Losers see thunderstorms, winners see rainbows; losers see icy streets, winners put on their ice skates!
– Denis Waitley

Much as I wanted to see the bright side of a very gloomy day, some people are just too persistent and are really getting into my nerves. I won't go into details anymore for I really find it so cheap but it did affect me in a way though. But I won't let it keep me down. There are far more important things than dwell with negativity.

My Weekend To Do's

~ Woke up as early as 5 a.m to do the laundry since
~ I will be going to Gabby's School to get her report card at 8 a.m
~ see if we could pay a visit to our parents place before lunch
~ Need to have a general cleaning of our room
~ update my blogs
~upload tons of photos for the artscow PB which has been long overdue


Save and Invest

>> 11/18/2009

How time flies really fast and Christmas season is just around the corner once again. Thinking and assessing what have I done and accomplish within the year made me realize that I've been out of focus on maintaining savings on our account. Being an impulsive buyer that I am, I always end up spending too much on things that are not too important which results on our broken budget most of the time. I need to become more cautious and should spend money wisely. I am also thinking of putting up on investment too, savings and investments is what I need to help me achieve our financial goal. silver dollar has been one of the many options on my lists as rare coins have been widely known as good form of investments, Monaco is offering the finest rare coins available and have been in the business for quite sometime now, and have been regarded as the best expertise when it comes to coins and investments in the marketplace.


Manic Monday #189

You have a brain tumor. Though there is no discomfort at the moment, this tumor would unquestionably kill you in six months. However, your life can (and will) be saved by an operation; the only downside is that there will be a brutal incision to your frontal lobe. After the surgery, you will be significantly less intelligent. You will still be a fully functioning adult, but you will be less logical, you will have a terrible memory, and you will have little ability to understand complex concepts or difficult ideas. The surgery is in two weeks.

How do you spend the next fourteen days?

~ Spend quality time with my family, savor each moment and put in writing all my requests regarding important matters and decisions.

Every person you have ever slept with is invited to a banquet where you are the guest of honor. No one will be in attendance except you, the collection of your former lovers, and the catering service. After the meal, you are asked to give a fifteen-minute speech to the assembly.

What do you talk about?

~ My life and lessons I've learned..

You have won a prize. The prize has two options, and you can choose either (but not both). The first option is a year in Europe with a monthly stipend of $2,000. The second option is ten minutes on the moon.

Which option do you select?

~a year in Europe with a monthly stipend of $2,000.
I could savor more experience with this one. 1o minutes in the moon is too short to enjoy being there, after all I think there's nothing much to see there I guess. hee

Pampering Yourself

>> 11/05/2009

One nice gift that you could give yourself this holiday season is to pamper yourself. Go to spa, have a massage and take off all the stress that caused you after being too busy the whole year round. Sometimes we tend to forget ourselves as we are too busy indulging on how to please other people. Treating and pampering ourselves once in awhile helps us to renew and freshen our thoughts and came up with a more pleasant views in life.

You could also have a trip to salon and get makeover, strut for a new haircut, get your nails done and choose a very nice nail polish that would go along with your nice dress, cute isn't it?! There are nice Christmas treats of nail care products that you can choose from at nails inc. They are quick, affordable and of high quality products and nails services that would give that fingernails a nice treatment this holiday season. You may opt to choose form a wide array of their color collections of nail polish or you can even make your own collection by choosing products you want. These are very nice products that I'm sure will be loved by your girl friends and is a very nice gift that you could give them this holiday.

Been browsing the New Arrivals of Holiday Fun Eyeglasses at Zenni optical awhile ago and I just couldn't decide on which to choose from the many nice designs of their $8 Prescription Zenni Glasses. But I think I would settle for this one...


Importance of Life

>> 11/01/2009

The recent typhoon tragedies that some of our countrymen experienced have been an eyeopener for each and everyone of us. It left many life lessons for us to pick up. Relationship to our creator and loved ones have been renewed to savor every minute of being with them. With these matters, we should take into consideration securing ours and loved ones lives. For some people, this is far from their plans and have neglected the idea for venturing into this kind of security. But it you would look into a deeper meaning and would weigh the pros and cons of it, you would realize that getting the Best Term Life Insurance would be the rational if not the best decision you could take and be confident enough just in case something happens with you or your family. Things happen unexpectedly and we never know the twist of fate. Preparation is the answer to avoid any problems to arise when dealing with the unexpected. Life indeed is a pleasure to enjoy but once taken by the creator, you can do nothing but to accept and move on, getting an insurance helps everyone to be prepare and have something enough to start something with once somebody goes.
