Father and daughter

Mahal... this time you are still holding our baby girl but  I know that next time you'll hold her... you'll be giving her away with the man that God has prepared for her.

Receipts

We do have trouble understanding our credit card total outstanding balance sometimes. The total amount don't tally with all the receipts we have from using the card. I'm just thankful co'z my hubby kept receipts and really work hard in tallying each amount from  our credit card bill and the amount we spent. Hubby  has actually receipts with him still, receipts that five months old already, good thing the ink used in the receipt printer was good and it did not fade co'z there are receipts that you can't hardly read what's written in there.

So to those who read this post and has the same trouble with their credit card bill like us. My tip is don't throw your receipts away instead keep it and try to tally it with your outstanding balance. ")

Happy holidays everyone!

Felt... I needed a four wheel drive

Spent almost a thousand for just a day trip from my house to Quezon City and back again with a sides trip in Makati yesterday. It's always like this whenever we visits Makati, so if we visit often it means we have to spend more cash on transpo alone. Food is not yet included here.

If  I could only find a car worth fifty thousand pesos or less, I might ask friends to lend me money so that we can buy one. It's really a hassle not having one this time.

Think about His Love and His Goodness

Auto Repair

My sister in-law shared a link with us about a hundred and fifty pesos worth of a second hand car. We wished we had the amount to buy the car because though it is used but it seems look good still. I know... we can never really tell the condition of a car if it is still good or not unless you look on the insides of it or if you are planning to buy one you could ask for a professional help or suggestion.

Having a car is like having a baby... you really need extra cash for its care and maintenance. Having it repaired when it's broken is a no joke thing, probably some one needs to consult in collision estimating before you let the work start or else you'll be surprise on how big your bill is.

Psalm 23 NIV

Psalm 23

1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
forever.

Cityville and Castleville

These are my buddies besides my little girl, thanks to those who came up with these games co'z my time flies quickly as I played with it. It's not that I'm a lazy or something reason why I am playing online games. In fairness to me :).. when your baby is watching baby genius vcd but also roll and crawl, eat and cry, poops and pee yet smile... there's nothing you can do but sit with her as she watched while you open your laptop and play city and castle ville :).

Moving Again

The owner of the house we are recently residing came here this morning to talked to us of what gotten us into leaving their house. It's good thing that she came co'z we were able to explain our side co'z she thought she might have done wrong with us reason we're moving. The talked went well and I thank God for the friendship we've shared.

Afternoon today hubby went to meet the lady owner of the house that we're going to move into. Hubby said she was a nice older lady in contrary to what we've heard that she is. Hubby signed the contract and soon we're moving again. Moving means packing and setting up things again, probably this means of letting go of some stuff and buying a new one. I told hubby to buy a long cable for our internet (the thing that is attached to the telephone to get wifi). I just don't know yet if we need to buy a monster hdmi cables for our other electronic devices.

Moving is both exciting and challenging thing to do. It's exciting co'z you're excited of the new things, it's challenging co'z you have to let go of the things or people you used to. I'm glad that we're able to make great friends here and they would be an addition to our collection of great friends :)

It's her b-day!

I just finished looking on my "goddaughter" birthday pictures on facebook and I almost can't believe that she's three already. Times indeed flies like a rocket, you'll never know till your hit by it. It feels just like yesterday when her mom got this opportunity to work abroad as a healthcare assistant in a rehab somewhere in Georgia. She grabs the opportunity though she has a good job here because of course it's way more different in terms of salaries and benefits working abroad. She applies in a company like of that of Chart Assembler Jobs that helps job seekers find their dream healthcare job.

Now my friend has able to get her husband and they now lived in the US of A with their two kids. And just yesterday this lovely little girl in the picture below celebrated her 3rd year b-day. I wish I'm with them celebrating it. I can't wait to see them again, hopefully next year (God willing!).


Happy birthday LJ!
ninong Doy, ninang carmz and ziah loves you!

Safety Razors : the art of shaving

I've been in pensive mood this past few weeks due to some adult responsibilities. Things have been so much different this time unlike when I was still a little person and all things was simple. Looking back and looking young when all the responsibilities falls on dad's and mom's shoulder but this time it's on me. Responsibilities in life is making me look untidy specially when work gets challenge, bills are dues in a week and health is not good.

Good thing is I have at least one best friend in the shower and that is my shaving pal safety razors , without this pal I would go untidy all through my life. Having a safety razor is really an important factor in having a good and smooth looking skin after shaving. If we want to look good, clean and neat right after shower we really need to invest on good razor blades. Shaving has been a part of me the moment these extra hairs came and I'm just thankful that I have teammates who could help me look neat still.

Some tips for a good star quality looking skin after shave :) *make sure your razors blades are not rusty and is safety to use before you use it. *make sure you put on cream before shaving to help the shaver work well and to avoid cuts. * don't forget to put to use badger shaving brush as the finale because this one really helps smoothen up the shaves.


*************
I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog about shaving cream
and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.

Mommy...ing

When I'm watching tv programs I'm always looking forward to watch the commercials co'z they're relieving to watch. Some of them are hilarious, others are drama, some are action but for me... I always look at the funny one co'z they made me smile/laugh. There is this commercial about of a telecommunication company about a mom who always knows her sons need though he's not telling it because she has "strong connection" with him.

A mom would:
...always find time for her children a midst her busy schedule...
...and would not look at their busy schedule when her children needed her...

She would always look for what's best for her kids and even looking at peppyparents.com for uppababy vista 2012 to see if there's any for her beloved children. A mom would deny herself just to help her kids even to the point of death. In fact my mom-in-law is sick right now due to over fatigue or too much work. She works hard so that she could send her young kids to school because their dad is not providing for them. This actually made me angry... but I couldn't do more... after all I'm just a daughter-in-law as some people say (I help though.. whatever there is I could do).

I salute to mommies and daddies out there who does everything to give their children a good and neat living.

my chubby-log :)

Hubby's sister love our baby so much, and she shows it buy buying her stuff. The dress that little Z's wearing is a just bought dress that she brought to our house to put it on my baby. Of course hubby and I are both happy and proud of our pretty little one.

Her aunts and uncle and grandma teases her. They said that she loves to wear clothes like that even though she looks her arms are big :). So they call her botchog!

I love my baby... and all I wanna do now it hug her tight.

For grandpops

All souls day have gone that fast. Whenever that day comes, people in the Phils are gone crazy going home to their hometown and going to the cemetery. Some to visits deceased loved ones and others just goes there to have fun. A lot of people really spent a lot of money for such a time as this.

As for me, I don't to to the cemetery to visits my deads because I don't want to be with a lot of people. All I do is remember the good things/memories we had when they were still alive. And I have loads of good memories of them except from my mom whom I don't even met. All I've got from her is the good stories my aunts and uncles had told me about her.

Remembering my grandpops who is now with his maker is how he loves tobacco when he was still alive. If I have have to give him a gift, I probably would give him a davidoff cigars that I would be buying from davidoff cigars online. Grandpops would be very happy to receive from from me. The sad thing is... no matter how good a cigar is... he would never appreciate now. All I want to think and believe in faith that he is enjoying now with Jesus more than he enjoys the comfort of cigars.

Reflecting (the you and I story)

I miss this lady in red in the picture, she's a friend who is miles away from me, actually a thousand miles away from me. This picture was taken during her wedding a year ago. It's almost hard to believe that it was a year ago already because it feels like only a month ago.

Today I can't help but think of our good times together (those times when both of us are still single). I'm actually more than happy now that both of us are living a happy crazy but very interesting life. I hope and pray that we'll see each other again someday. God bless my friend :)

Baguio City.. here we come!

Another out of town plan and I really do hope that this one among many plans that we have would come to pass because I really would like to go somewhere out of town. What's makes me more excited though is this place that we hope to go is one big summer capital of the Phils... so I'm expecting coldness, but not hoping it's freezing cold co'z freezing cold is quite not good anymore.

All i want to experience this Christmas holiday is Christmas coldness! I'm bored with being warm all the time as in twenty-four seven.

Nakakasad :((((

Di ko lubos akalain na matagal-tagal na palang di ko naa-update ang blog kong ito kaya naman bumaba ng husto ang pr niya. Nalulungkot ako nung malaman ko kagabi na mababa na siya dahil isa ito sa mga nakakatulong sa akin upang kahit papano ay kumita ng kahit maliit na halaga.

Oo, mahalaga na kumita ng malaki... pero kung di kakayanin bakit ko naman ipagpipilitan na kumita ng malaki, basta ang importante sa akin ay kahit papano may pumapasok na pera sa akin sa isang buwan. Ang maliit na bagay pag pinahahalagahan ay nagiging malaking bagay na rin.

Hay.. ako'y nangangamba pero umasa na bukas ay meron din akong magandang umaga :)

Working at home

I'm no professional or company employed person who works at home. I just consider myself working at home mom because I tried to grab every opportunity to do any financial earnings jobs; such as anything I can do to earn in the web.

I can't say that I'm earning much co'z sometimes I don't actually, but the good thing about this.. is, I can work while taking care of my baby Z plus I am in control of my time. I don't need to hurry up, wake up early, and I don't need to work with inconsiderate bosses. But I also need and do document imaging specially my files in my lappy toppy so that I know where to find it whenever I needed it.

I actually miss going out and work with people, but as for now I am more than contented with what I do knowing I could always be with my baby. I just hope and pray for more financial earning opportunities here in my blogs co'z I really need that green bill (specially the green bill with the number one and two zero's on it :).

Storms: seen or unseen

Hubby is gone for the office and the baby is soundly sleeping in the couch co'z she doesn't like sleeping in the crib, so instead of fighting with her loud cries and wailing.. so I give in and lie her down on the couch where she went quiet and fall asleep easily. So here I am... fidgeting... of things to do... to get extra cash since Christmas is soon.

Worries, frustrations and the like.. are like unseen storm in our lives, it keeps coming and there is no way that we won't be hit by it. It's also the same thing with typhoons and tornado's; they keep coming and if we don't learn how to brace ourselves and plan how to keep it from harming us again... it will devastate us again and again.

I feel like I'm going through a storm of financial crisis these days but since this is not the very first time that happens to me, I somehow... have learn how to survive. I know my Lord knows my exact needs and like before... He had have provided for me, so now I rest in peace with faith in my heart that my Lord will and will always do the same thing.

Talking about the tornado, tsunami, typhoon and a lot of other storms, if we are experiencing such every year... I do hope that we just don't welcome them without preparations. We need to build storm shelters for such a time as this and of course we should never forget to call unto Him who always help those who needed and recognize Him.

A good place to be this weekend holiday :)

I wish, hope and pray that I'll be able to visit this place with my family before the Lord take me to heaven. Such a beautiful place to be... holiday or not!

Smokey Credit Card

Our credit card is our best friend these days, specially that cash seemed so scarce and all that we have is the card. We were able to purchased a Christmas-tree on sale for a cheaper price though we don't have a cash with us, we just used our credit card plus the good thing about using it was it has a pay later promo, so it means our starting payment is next year.

Honestly I'm always nervous whenever our credit report or our credit card bill comes every month. I always hold my breath and say a prayer before looking at the total expenses. I'm just glad God knows our needs and every month provides money to pay the bills.

I want a new camera

A month ago hubby and I saw this very cheap camera online with a 14mp. We thought it's good quality and a high time for us to get one. So without so much thought, hubby took his credit card and here I go typing the details and stuff. Unfortunately our credit card got disapproved. It made me sad on the first place but was glad as well because it was an impulsive act on my side. I was actually afraid that it might debited on hubby's credit card because I have tried it twice. Good thing it didn't.

I need a camera because I need to take picture of my baby and her milestone, I'm not satisfied with my cellphones camera anymore specially it has 5mp only. I don't really care if I have to buy olympus camera batteries for a real camera (well, what I mean is... not a cellphone's camera). I'm not losing hope still. I know next year I might have one, not only a camera but an iPhone too. :)

Ziah's Bus Trips (First ever)


My family has to travel from our place to my godchild birthday venue, but since we don't have a car and hubby was not able to borrow one too, we need to take a sidecar, tricycle, and a bus to get to the city. I was happy and proud with my baby co'z even though she was not feeling well then, she did not cry or anything but was all smiley and slept half of the bus ride. She's always curious about the new things she saw and experienced.

Cupcakes for me

I went to a nearest mall and other department store looking for a plastic cabinet for my daughter's stuff co'z our cabinet can't contain all our stuff anymore. Some of our clothes are just sitting on our couch co'z it won't fit in anymore. So hubby and I decided to buy a cabinet for my baby Z.

When we were in the mall, while hubby was watching a band, I myself went to the bread store looking at the cakes, cupcakes and other sweets. I don't know what happen though because I was not able to buy one and just thought of it when I was home already.

A friend of mine makes birthday cupcakes for a living though and she already made some for a friends birthday. I probably would buy one for my baby Z's birthday or since I am craving for some... I might have some of it for my December party. :)

So we may know

‎"Please pass to everyone you know"

A couple lost their 25 year old son in a fire at home on June 4th. The son who had graduated with MBA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison two weeks earlier had come home for a while. He had lunch with his dad at home and decided to go back to clean up his hostel room. His father told him to wait, to meet his mother, before he went back for a few days. He decided to take a nap while waiting for his mom to come back home from work. Some time later their neighbors called 911 when they saw black smoke coming out of the house. Unfortunately, the 25 years old died in the three year old house. It took several days of investigation to find out the cause of the fire. It was determined that the fire was caused by the lap top resting on the bed. When the lap top was on the bed cooling fan did not get the air to cool the computer and that is what caused the fire. He did not even wake up to get out of the bed because he died of breathing in carbon monoxide. The reason I am writing this to all of you is that I have seen many of us and also our sons & daughters using the lap top while in bed and in the Arabic mattress salon . Let us all decide and make it a practice not to do that. The risk is real. Let us make it a rule not to use the lap top on bed or on the Arabic mattress with blankets and pillows around. Please educate as many people as you can.

Dollars: dreaming of you

I wish I have more of these bills below on my paypal account, IT account, and on my wallet... specially that Christmas is rushing towards me like water. I am actually in deep thoughts these past few days because of it. My thoughts is more of those people (family and inaanaks) who are expecting that I'll be able to remember them this Christmas. They are so lucky because someone is thinking of them... but how about me... is there someone who thinks of me or even considering?

I think it's unfair sometimes... specially on my part co'z it has been three years in a row that I seldom get gifts. It's not that I am expecting though (expecting like a kid)... it's just, you know... It feels like no one cares when you don't get any. I don't know... I am probably just experiencing a little low today reason I'm writing this way.

Giving is not really an issue with me co'z it's one thing I love to do... giving... but planning about it with no budget is totally different. Sometimes... all you wanna do is hide from people until its over. But to tell you... I am very much excited for Christmas and God knows that.

I wish to have more of this before Christmas (and pray God will do a miracle for me).

Party like a rockstar

Christmas is coming soon and no matter what we do we can't keep it from coming. In fact it's 84 days left till Christmas day. I know a lot of people are making their list of "inaanaks" or godchildren and dear ones for Christmas gift. A lot of company's, schools, churches, groups, friends and individuals are making plans about parties and stuff like that or some are even planning of going out of town or country (am.. are they running away from people who would come to them for gifts? just joking). I would love to go somewhere for Christmas holiday with friends as we did five years ago, I went up North for a week with friends and it was unforgettable and so much fun. I wish I could do that again.

Last Christmas my friends planned a "rockstar christmas party", it was very fun specially that our friends from resides in the US came to visit. I just don't know though about this coming Christmas, no one send any Christmas invitations, however, I'm rest assured that when my friends plan it's gonna be fun, and if we're gonna sends invites... it probably would look like this picture below that I took from the net.

UK: a place to visit back

Hubby has given the opportunity to visit United Kingdom five years ago through a church youth exchange program. There was this church in Luton that has a program that gives Filipino youth (particularly a church worker youth) to come a stay in their church for four months (from October until January). Our youth has to raise money good for four months day-to-day allowance, meaning they will provide for their food food and transportation, airfare and accommodations and other expenses are handled by the church program. Then after Filipino's has experience the Western Culture, the church in Luton will also send some of their youth to stay and immerse with Filipino culture for four months long.

This was indeed a great opportunity for youth to know more about the world, people, another culture, religion and a lot of other things. As my hubby struggle for a lot of things while he was in UK, things such as; money: he said that it is very expensive to live in such a wealthy place for a Filipino youth like him who can't barely buys his lunch, culture: is so much different from where he came from... it's more of individuality, lifestyle: Hubby can't cope up with their lifestyle.. they are more on to new gadgets.. while hubby has to borrow a cellphone when he was there. All in all... hubby was culturally shocked but Spiritually boosted.

I know it was the same thing or experience when their youth was here. They probably had wished for a croatia villas to stay with for a little comfort since they are away from home and comfort. As hubby struggle for the mind freezing coldness while he was there, I know for sure that the English youth had melted out while they were here. They're struggle are quite the same only in different situation.

With all hubby's hardwork while he was there, the Lord had give them a break as well so that they will enjoy the place, the culture and their stay by giving them chance to explore the place. As for hubby though... he was able to attend concert, visit remarkable places in London, and was given a chance to visit a stay for night in a rich mans place where the house is like a villas in Croatia because it was very nice. He could never asked for more than the experience he had while he was in UK.

Now, that hubby has a family of his own and is no longer a youth (and even went further than expected after doing the program for he became a youth leader... and is now a missionary), he wishes that he'll able to bring his family in that place once again and probably would even go holidays to Croatia if we have the money... even for just a week or two. Who knows the Lord whom we serves read my blog as well and grant my desire. I will be seeing you there... God only knows when :).

Screengrab from Pagasa

Typhoon Pedring (Inetrnational name Nasat) has exited the
Philippine area of responsibility but has left loads of
damages.

If I could only do something about typhoons and
could prevent them from visiting us. I will block it entirely.
Or... if only typhoon needs a visa to visit the Philippines,
I have probably write a letter to the government
telling them to blacklist all typhoons coming.

If only......

SM Bacoor

This was the very first time that we brought our baby to this mall riding daddy's motorbike. It was indeed a crazy move but worth the experience and we might not do it again unless our Z gets older and really know how to ride in the motorbike with daddy.

Remembering my sleepless nights

I work as a telemarketer before to someone who lives in the US. I called people from the there through my computer. It was a good work though even it gave me sleepless nights since I do it during midnight here in the Philippines. The only thing that was hard was the accent. The locals could sense that I'm no American with the accent I have.

My boss was good to me though he provided all my needs and even gave me a vtech cellphone for my personal use co'z we can't use it to call people in the US. Someone borrowed that phone and never returned it. I'm pretty sure that vtech batteries is still good and the phone is still working. I just hope and pray that the phone is indeed in good hands and serves its purpose.

Stop... read... and pray!

I knelt to pray but not for long,I had too much to do.I had to hurry and get to workFor bills would soon be due.So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,And jumped up off my knees.My Christian duty was now doneMy soul could rest at ease.....All day long I had no timeTo spread a word of cheerNo time to speak of Christ to friends,They'd laugh a at me I'd fear.No time, no time, too much to do,That was my constant cry,No time to give to souls in needBut at last the time, the time to dieI went before the Lord,I came, I stood with downcast eyes.For in his hands God! Held a book;It was the book of life.God looked into his book and said"Your name I cannot find
I once was going to write it down...
But never found the time"

Tips: smooth shave

Lifestyle is change now after this two months old baby came to our life and changes everything. I do not worry about at least smoothing myself up because kissing my wife with an unshaved moustache is never been an issue with her. Sometimes I don’t even notice that since I forgot to shave I look like a different person until someone like my mom would tell to clean myself up, not that I am dirty or something, it’s just all about my beardy.

Now that we have our baby life changes.. in a good way. I need to shave every other day so that I can kiss my girl. And though I don’t feel like doing it, but I need to if I want my face close to her. Ooh.. babies has this unintentional power to manipulate and hypnotized their parents and I think even the toughest person on this earth will be soften with babies charms.

Here are some tips though in having a soft clean after shave:
· Choosing a good razor blades is one factor to have a good shave. A good shaver can make a perfect shave.
· Applying a shaving cream before and after shave could also help make a perfect shave.
· Make sure that you always wet your face (for males) and legs (for women) to prevent skin irritation.
· Choose also a good badger shaving brush. You used use a shaving brush to spread the cream rather using your finger.
· You can apply a pre-shave oil as well. It soften the beard for shaving.
· Use a face scrub or shaving soap when you don’t feel like using a cream, but don’t shave with none of either of the two.

Friends and LCD's

I am happy and excited about my friend J's new lcd. It was indeed big and has loads of add ons ( I mean she not only get a the lcd tv but it goes with other mini theater equipment's). I was happy to see it and even watched a movie in it. Such things are really tempting you have in the house, but when you are short in budget don't even dare to look at them or else you'll end in debt.

As for me... I might get one of those when I have move to my new house and has a lesser expenses, and as for today I'll just look at this samsung lcd tvs first and pray that the Lord will give me one someday. So since, I'm capable of buying it, I'll get contented with our flat screen samsung tv first.

Roadside Assistance and my very close friends

Traveling is one thing I love doing even if it means more cash to go and numb butts co'z of sitting and a dizzy head because of the long drive. I really don't mind all these as long as I'm travelling... and travelling with hubby and friends. Nothing beats a long trip or travel with your best friends. Nothing compares to a holiday together with them... eating, swimming,playing board-games, laughing, sleeping together in a very small a shack and dreaming together.

Travelers, drivers or car owners would never know the importance of roadside assistance unless they experience the trouble in being in the road of nowhere with a broken vehicle. Whom you'll gonna call then when you have no plans and support? Driving is truly and adventure co'z you'll never know what will happen to you while you are in your way.

The good thing about in today's business is... there are people or company's who are willing to render help in times of trouble like this in a non-expensive way. Those people are willing to come to your aid with all the equipment you need to give you assistance.

I need a car

Yes, I need a car and this time is for real. If I could only sell hubby's motorbike more than its price so that I could buy a car now... then I probably would.
The reason of this... is because traveling with a baby without your own car is no fun at all. Its always double the expenses and to think that we are cross cutting things since our expenses are getting out of control because of the baby.

I wish I have a lot of extra income and I even wished I have a business even if its small as long as i have an income every month. I told hubby to look for a possible business spot, but since hubby is no businessman and don't have any business inclination... he always tell me that " I really don't know what to say... maybe you do it."

So now I thinking that probably the Lord has no go signal for me to do any business, and maybe I need to pray more about this as well but as for now I really need a car... not a borrowed one... but our own.

Then.. when the Lord blesses us a car I could look for a polaris rzr accessories... that is if the Lord will give me a Polaris brand of car, but to tell you any brand will do.

Robinson's Ermita Manila- malling with baby Z

Went to this mall last Sunday with friends to have a "sushi-all you can eat". We were overwhelmingly full. If I had to taste all of their sushi's my tummy might burst, so I take all those I felt tasty.

We all had fun not only because of the sushi's that we ate... it was fun because we went there together. Nothing compares to good friends really. I'm just thankful I have loads of them. :)

the boys :)
the girls :)

first Official Malling

On Sunday... hubby, Ziah and myself together with some friends will go to a mall for a "sushi all you can" food tripping. This would be also the first official malling of my baby. I am very excited specially because tomorrow we will going to buy a brand new stroller for her. I can't wait for tomorrow to shine and can't wait to put my baby in her stroller.

Tonight as we put her to bed, hubby lovingly stroke her several hairs and said... "I love my baby so much". My baby gets so much attention and love from us and from her tita's and tito's...

I am so much thankful God has brought her to us.
Thank you Lord for this wonderful and adorable gift. :)

Doing Good!

1 Peter 3:8-14

1Pe 3:8 Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.
1Pe 3:9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.
1Pe 3:10 For, "Whoever would love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech.
1Pe 3:11 He must turn from evil and do good; he must seek peace and pursue it.
1Pe 3:12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."
1Pe 3:13 Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good?
1Pe 3:14 But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened."

Thinking of you Lord today...

This is my prayer and my song today!

Ocean will part (Hillsong United)

If my heart has grown cold
There Your love will unfold
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand
When I'm blind to my way
There Your Spirit will pray
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand

Oceans will part nations come
At the whisper of Your call
Hope will rise glory shown
In my life Your will be done

Present suffering may pass
Lord Your mercy will last
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand
And my heart will find praise
I'll delight in Your way
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand

Got me moving

I slept near twelve midnight last night and woke up at three am today and did not give any sleep at all because my baby is awake as well. I tried to do some online work but the baby just don't make me work at peace... she kept on calling me trough her crying/whining. So there's nothing I can do but stop my work and attends my baby's needs.

Friends actually told me that for sure I'm going to lost weight because of sleeplessness and tiredness. But to the contrary I don't, and in fact I feel I'm getting heavier. I just hope though that I don't have a pcos sickness. My weight plus is due to not proper eating probably and too much coffee (my coffee has much sugar and cream), I also ate more these days.. more rice and more of sweets.

I do hope that I'll able to loss weight with apidexin fat burner, and that I'll be able to fit my smaller size clothes :)

Re-visited...Renovated

Hubby and I were away for almost four consecutive weeks from home. We were with some friends in the city. We just come home to take our laundry home and get more for personal usage stuff. We do miss our house and the comfort it gives to us.

during this long-time stayed, we got invited by a dear friend to have dinner at her parents house. Truly I got surprised when I got there because the kitchen looks different already, and yup... newly renovated. No wonder the stainless steel sink was still shining and you could tell it's still new. I like the sink, it seems the highlight of the renovation for me. I am thinking of getting a sink just like that for my house, not now though but when I needed one :)

A Disciple Of Jesus Christ (by Tohp P.)

A Disciple doesn’t look back

He doesn’t make excuses

He made up his mind and knows were he is going

He is heading to Jerusalem; to embrace the cross were his master was crucified

He was called not to be served but to serve

He will often say, Lord here am I!

For He must deny himself and take up his cross daily

And often he hears His master saying “Come follow me!”

He was instructed not to love the world or anything in this world but to love His enemies

His food was the bread of life and His only thirst was for the living water

He is very careful to the yeast of the Pharisees

For he is not after to the purity of the law but to the purity of the heart

He seeks only the Kingdom of God and His righteousness

His principle in life was the Sermon on the Mount

For he is blessed to share the afflictions of his Master

His Glory was in shame because of his obedience in following the Good Shepherd

His only Mission was to preach the Kingdom of Heaven

For in them he found contentment and true meaning of his existence

Nothing in this world can stop him in serving his King

Like a sharp arrow in the hands of his mighty King!

The only reason why he live is for Christ, and for him to die is gain

Even death no longer has mastery over him for he already found life through Him

A slave whose only wish is that Christ may increase and that he may continually decrease

His faith was built by the grace that is in the eyes of the one who died for Him.

What?

As I walk back and fort form my computer to my baby who is drinking her milk and trying to catch sleep again I am thinking what is htc virgin. A lot of things comes to my mind and as I did a little research I still don't understand what it is because the source is not showing it. And though I have idea of this product I still want to know more.

Anyhow, I will just leave it like that for now coz I need to go back to my baby and will stay with her for a little while. I will continue my research later.

Definitely Gorgeous

If I'll gonna have a lawn in our house I would definitely buy a thing like this. It would be lovely to just chill out with friends in here... drink coffee and watch our kids as they play around. Or hubby and I could also just sit here and read books as Ziah our daughter run around and play.

... I know I wishing upon a star with this because I don't know if it would happen knowing we only have a space for a car and we don't really have lawn thing. But there is no harm or wrong in dreaming and wishing... who knows the God I serve might grant my wishes.

I think we need you

Hubby's mom and sister came just a few hours ago to see baby Ziah again, and I'm sure that they'll be dropping by every and then even without notice. My problem is just... it's warm (hotter than usual) again today and I guess if the temperature is always like this we need for electric fans or if we could afford an air-conditioning.

The good about air-conditioning is... it doesn't have any cable wires that messes around unlike electric fans that definitely needs cable covers because wires should be covered this time since we have a baby so she won't play with it and get hurt.

I hope and pray that someday hubby will come home with air-conditioning :)

The Cost of Money

Got this from my church sunday bulletin article:

Cost of Money
by: Connie Hinnen Cook


How much did your money cost you?
Was the ladder of wealth hard to climb?
Did you stage some attacks,
Perhaps stab a few backs.
Did it take all your effort, your time?


How much did your money cost you?
Was your home full of peace or unrest?
At the close of the day,
Could you honestly say;
That you've given your family your best?


Did you have a nice home?
Did you drive a fine car?
Now you're sis feet below.
Will it get you that far?


How much did your money cost you?
Was that paycheck your only reward?
All those hours of pulling strings,
Just to buy you more things.
But no time for the things for the Lord.


How much you money cost you?
Did you look in the mirror with pride?
Or did greed run a muck?
For that almighty buck?
Till you put your conscience aside?
Did it cost your soul?
Did you dawdle in sin?


Now your outside of heaven, can you bribe your way in?

Unintentional Gossip!

I'm here stuck in a room (a guest room of my beloved church). We're here because we decided to stay for several days for we felt tired of coming here and there riding the bike with all the heat and sweat and air pollution due to undisciplined vehicle owners.

We woke early this morning due to some loud noise outside, but we did not get up because there's really nothing to hurry about and in fact we don't see any people preparing for any activity here today. So we stayed in the room. Yet, if you look at the outside the room seems unoccupied since there's no light, the fan is set at a very low mode and it seems that no person is inside.

But the fact is, hubby and I are here and with all our innocence hearing all these gossips from older women who talks about people that are not their concerns. blah, blah, blahhhhh.... and another blah. These people makes me mad... about myself and about them.

I'm mad about them because: they are talking confidential issues(not concerning of themselves) in a public place. I am mad about myself because: I'm seeing a bit of me in them.

So help me God that I won't be like them.

Always in the Hospital

A friend of mine was just came from a community hospital a few days back. He stayed at the hospital for three days due to an operation. We teased him in a way because just a few months ago, he was confined with the same hospital for an abdominal problems. He seems like a hospital boarder or in other terms lodger.

Honestly, I don't like going to the hospital. I have my share of this "hospital saga" of my life, what I mean is: I consider my hospitalization a medieval history and I want it to remain like that. It was not a good one (something that I almost died of), and I don't wanna go back again to a hospital.

My sister in-law has an eyesight problem and it freaked me out why no one in the family is taking a moment or two to bring her to a hospital or optical clinic for I'm sure they are equipped of eye-treatment- device such as vision screener so that her eyes could be treated. I actually wish she's old enough to take care of herself, but all I can do now is suggest things and nothing more.

Home and Happy :)

We've been away for four days and it was a very hectic days of our lives, both emotional and physical. Yet in spite of what happened I still praise God for the grace that abounds from HIM.

My encouragement for today:)

*the joy of the Lord is our strength.
*be wise to choose your own circle and choose your own battle.

.....just this for today! God bless guys!

One fine day road trip

On our way to the office, I took a picture of hubby and myself using my samsung cellphone, but unfortunately it only capture hubby and a little bit of me. But its alright because as I see it, I'm not smiling and in fact I'm frowning. :)

The Importance of life insurance

I once got employed by someone who sells life insurance. I never knew then how things happen with this kind of business until I got hired. I thought it was easy and get a life insurance, I really thought it would never a hassle. But I was wrong so wrong, it's not only easy to get its also not easy to sell. It's hard to convince people how important or beneficial a life insurance can be.

There are actually many insurance plans available, and it can be used in many different ways as well. Its up to the person what kind she or he wants to buy. My friends brother got an accident a month ago and thanks to life insurance because if without it they probably in total debt this time. If people would only know the importance of life insurance I'm pretty sure they'll be getting a Wholesale Insurance Services to protect their loved one is times of trouble.

I know that I can't afford any life insurance yet but I would definitely get one if I have the means.

All Kinds of Batteries

I was sitting down at our team leaders garage table waiting for hubby to come down to pick me up for home when I saw one of my team mates trying to recharge his cellphone battery. I was surprised at first because it never occurred to me that a cellphone battery could be recharge alone (I mean not being attach with the cellphone itself). I never knew it things like that happens still, sorry, my ignorance.

I never knew as well that there are stores whose expertise are on batteries and the sell all kindds of batteries and what's amazing is we can buy these batteries online, isn't it amazing! Actually I can now tell my friends where to look for batteries when they needed one.


Diet and Me

Honestly, I thought of food and being young and all is good. Then I also though of food and getting older and things kind of became complicated. Yeah very complicated, because when I was young and ate a a big mac at mcdonalds my body burned it just in a few hours, but this time when I eat just a regular burger I feel that the fats I take will be forever in my body.

So this time I can't help but count the calories I take and does research about diet pills like HCG diet Austin to really see if this one is good for me. There are actually loads of fat burners sold in and out of drugstores or health shops but we should be very careful in choosing one so that our health will not be jeopardize.

Me In a Diet Mode?

Friends thought of me crazy these fast three days that we were hanging out together (when I say hanging-out is: we were together from dinner to midnight snack to breakfast to lunch and to dinner again :)). What's made them freaked out when they were eating and I'm around is, I'm counting the food calories that we/they are about to consume and it made out all felt horrible in a funny way. Friends are friends even in horrible times.

Actually we all are thinking of diet pills that work or really works effectively, we are not teenagers anymore and our body's don't lose fat like a teenager does. At this age of ours when we eat food it's kind of being stocked in our body unlike when we we young and we ate loads and loads of food it seems that the food just went somewhere else. whew! I really need some good diet.

New office

We just have finish painting our new office an is now setting up the tables and other stuff. So now as hubby arrange some things on our table I have this good opportunity to write a post in here. Well, it has been a week of true physical work for me and it really got all my energy. All I want and need this time is a good rest and a relaxing massage.

Anyway, I would also like to write down in here what I have done that made me tired. Together with my team, we painted the walls, windows and the floors of the new office. We also did a lot of sweeping and scrapping. We were all grateful that we have tools that made our job easy, like the sturdy step that we use so that we can reach the upper part of the windows and walls. I now realized that doing these things without proper tools will be very challenging.

Now the place looks good and cool and it feels like its a real office now. I am excited to come to the office.

Trip to San Pablo Laguna on a rainy Sunday

Last Sunday our team leader asked a favour from hubby to bring a couple friend to their house in San Pablo. So after church we went. It rained so hard but we are thankful because there was no traffic and the trip was not that hard. What made that day special was we made friends with the young couple.

Here are pictures on the way to San Pablo:

ADA Lifts

We were watching a tv "believe it not" show. It really amazes us (both hubby and I) to watch this show because it shows people that others has this extraordinary ability to do extraordinary things. It actually inspires those who thought that they can't because it gives them hope that they can still make it if they persevere.

I saw this young man without feet and without hands but can swim and dance and can lift himsels up without need of help. Saw other people of abnormalities (I mean, those who are in wheelchair) because their feet just fail them but still fight the good fight of faith and are determined to finish the race of life. Some people, even though are contained on their wheelchairs are still very competitive and athletic, they must be using an ada lifts to help them lifts themselves. What an inspiration they are! God may bless their hearts and their lives.

Loan Resources

We went to our bank the other day to pay our house. As I looked around the place I can't help but wonder how come there's more than three banks around. Then some questions arise in my mind in how could these banks profits because of competitions. There's loads for clients to choose. But somehow it really helped people to pick the good one, yet for us, we were not the one who chose our bank but the company developer. We are actually thankful for their help because it's not easy for us to get a checking account, but with their help we're able to get one.

In front of the bank I saw a signage that says, "you can loan here" and it made me remember the payday loans online I happens to see on the net. I wonder though what is easy to get loans: online or not. But I have this conclusion that online is easier than that is not based on the requirements you need to give to get one.

I agree that loans specially financial services like this are huge help in times specially when we are in the stage of desperate financial help. You could get instant cash over night with no sweat at all. But I also would like to encourage those who benefits this help to also be responsible in paying back as you have promised. Its hard to tear down trust specially with the ones you knew you can count on in times of trouble.

Wii for me?

Actually when I saw that some of my friends have wii's and they also use this as an instrument to get lose weight, I felt the urged of getting one for myself so that I could also do some work out at home using this thing. My desire got washed-out when I found out that to have one means I need to pay a really good deal of money.

With my recent financial situation, I need to let go of this because this is no way that I can afford it unless I'll be flooded with more opportunities and get paid really good, just then might be able to afford the cheapest one. But this day all I want is to buy hubby the wii zumba as a father's day gifts even though we are not parents yet.


Treatment

There are times in my life as a wife that I have this disagreement with hubby , a disagreement that refuses solutions, I say refuses because the issue don't die, its like a disease that's not being treated so it come back whenever it is triggered. Hubby and do live a good harmonious life as a couple, but I do believe that there's no perfect relationship. So I consider ours as normal.

I just wished when things gets wrong with us that there's an instant treatment to my feelings, I wish I'm someone who is like him (attitude wise) so that there won't be any misunderstanding or conflict between us. A lot of times I thought that the things I thought is good is also as good with him, but definitely not because we are two different people. When things like this happens I wish I'm ill enough to be brought to california treatment centers to be treated.

I know... I'm a bit weird sometimes, but this is what we called.... life!

Online Payday loans

With less task and pays receive from my online income, I sometimes worries on I on earth I could pay all the bills. There were even times that I really prayed hard to God that somehow an advertiser would happen to drop by at my blog, review it and hire me. Good thing because "the One" I prayed for hears prayers and send down blessings to those who ask for it.

I could recall when there were times before in my work that my finances don't meet ends. That halfway through payday all my money is gone specially with the high prices of the commodities, my allowance don't really helped me that much. If only I have the access to connect with online payday loans no credit check then I might have apply. But, I don't have blog back then, all I knew was how to do emails, I don't even have any social network site. Worst of all, I'm afraid to turn on computers for virus may get in and I'll be liable to its breaks down.

Yet, in today's time, that I myself had progress too, with the "know how" knowledge about computers and stuff, with all these gadgets that I have, I still do worries. My worries never change it's all about how could I pay all my bills and end of the month expenses. If hubby would only allow me to get online payday loans no credit check , I might take courage to do then when times are really tough just to lessen burdens specially now that we are still are expected to help both of our families. In fact, my sister has just told me that she really is in need of me to help her with her schooling.

I wish money would rain down on me!

Was at MOA for our 3rd year Anniv.

It was late afternoon already when hubby decided to go to Mall of Asia to celebrate our third year wedding anniversary. I was actually proposing for Tagaytay but he refused because its further than MOA.

Here's some pics:
