Hopefully

Hopefully that in the next three more days I will be able to finally say... Bicol here I come. hahaha. I say this because I do have loads of planned trips last year that did not happen. I have four local trips and a three International trips. All of these did not happen for a lot of reason.

Reasons like.. if not because of  short of budget, it's because of  no time or because of health. Then there's three of us co's there is no way we're not bringing with us our daughter.

I'm hoping that this trip to Bicol will finally pursue co's this gonna be a beautiful start for my trip plans for this year 2013. Happy New Year everyone! :)

Kitchen Cabinets

Even up to now I haven't decided yet of what kind of kitchen cabinets would I get for my new house. I really need to decide now co's one more inspection and we can have it. If only it's not a holiday we might have gotten it already.

I have checked these beautiful discount rta kitchen cabinets and have found some that I like too. I will tell hubby about this and let him see it himself.  Cabinets is the very first thing that we want to install so that we have something to put into our stocks.

Reminiscing...

I woke early this morning and for some reason my mind brought me with the memories I have in  the province, the place I grew up. Our house was in the middle of a rice field, so I got all the space to see the sky and the mountains. I love it! Sky and mountains are my favorite view to look.

Our neighbors are far from us but since they're only the other there... so it means they our neighbors. There was this one neighbor that we have that I like to visit everyday. All of the people there loves me (as per me. hahaha). I have this clear view of there house in my mind both the inside and the outside.

Thinking it now... I consider their house as my dream house, with all the space and the style. If the Lord will grant me the opportunity to build a house of my own, I might copy the style of their house.

As for now though... that dream will remain a dream co's there is no way I could renovate my house into that. Oh... life in the city.

Trusting Him

I posted on my facebook status yesterday how painful my broken tooth was when someone commented on it and said I must save my tooth. I then commented back that I wanted to do that but the cost is giving me headache as well. Then a friend messaged me privately and telling me that he is giving me an amount to at least lessen the amount I'm needing. Indeed God is good and provides in a way we least expect.

Slow computer

My netbook is the slowest computer to turn on until it's ready to use. It takes five minutes or more til it's ready. I don't like waiting and I wish there is something I can do about it. Hubby has no time to look into my computer to see what wrong, he's too busy for that.

I really wish that hubby will have time to see this how to speed up your computer apps and see if this does work effectively and could fix my computer. Doesn't it feel annoying when your in a hurry to get a file but your computer is very slow to open? Oh... I always have that feeling.

Last night

I was in Luneta with in-laws last night to fulfill the wish of my youngest in-law co's he's never been to Rizal Park til last night. We we're all happy and mesmerized by the dancing lights. It was very beautiful, I'm glad I went there.

After visiting the park our next plan was to eat dinner together with hubby which landed us to eat at Savory-Cash and Carry Mall. We ate there co'z we celebrated my sister-in-law fiancee's birthday which was also yesterday.  We were the last guest co'z we went there at nine and the mall was closing already.

It was a tiring night but fun!

A flat screen tv for my new house?

A flat screen tv is definitely part of my list of stuff to buy for my new house, but I won't be buying it this time, our priority is to tiles the floors, window grills, cabinets, a new fridge, an oven and a new mattress.  This list I have in here needed a huge amount of money to be able to get all these things.

We will get things one at a time though, we are not getting it in one shopping. Well, I really wish we can get a  tv and flat screen stand at standsandmounts co's I know their stuff there are of good quality and good deal as well. I am losing my hope though, who knows we might can.

I am actually so much excited to move again, we just don't know when.

My beautiful bruise!

These cuts, scratched and bruise I got reminds me of how protective God is!
Thank you Lord for your protection!

Coffee and me

My sister in law fiance' just brought four big bottles and three medium pack of coffee from Saudi last week, and it's in our house, all of them. So me being a coffee freak is now having the coffee time of my life. I really can't resist coffee this time no matter what I do... It's coming to me! lol!

How I wish now I have a good coffee maker, ours almost got broken. If I only have a bunn coffee maker for sure it would not be hard to look for bunn coffee maker parts co's you can look online for it.  I hope someone would give me a bunn coffee maker this Christmas. :)

My humble church!

Drawer and Cabinets

Two days ago hubby and I went to finally inspect our new house. I was very excited to see it for the first time. Of course I have a lot in mind of what to do, what to put inside my house so that it may look better and spacious.Our main goal though at this time since budget is really hard to get is to put tiles on the floor and put built in cabinets.

Now I saw this 24 inch pie cut lazy susan corner base cabinet and I think I'm in love with it.  I really hope I could buy something like this or at least I can find one in the store near my place.

Is desperate in making online earnings :((

I really wish my hard work will pays off. I'm very active in one online earning sites but it seems that no matter how hard I tried, no matter how many comments I will do my earning is still low.

But I not that satisfied because I was there for more than a month now and still get 8 while other's got their payout end of the month. :((
I hope I'll able to reach payout in December.

Just a treat


(A post I copied from a friend)


Tomorrow, a lot of creatures will visit your door. Be open minded. The child who is grabbing more than one piece of candy might have poor fine motor skills. The child who takes forever to pick out one piece of candy might have motor planning issues. The child who does not say "trick or treat" or "thank you" might be painfully shy, non-verbal, or selectively mute. If you cannot understand their words
, they may struggle with developmental apraxia of speech. They are thankful in their hearts and minds. The child who looks disappointed when he sees your bowl might have a life-threatening allergy. The child who isn't wearing a costume at all might have SPD or autism. Be kind, be patient, smile, pretend you understand. It's everyone's Halloween. Make a parent feel good by making a big deal of their special child.

Almost there...

One month from now we will be able to see our house and the excitement it's giving me is indescribable.  I almost see it, touch it and feel  it. My prayer now is... that I may fall in love with our house and that every corner of it is beautiful to me. This become my prayer because when we were about to get the house we we're arguing a lot.  I keep on telling him that I don't like the house and that his faith is too little. Hubby was mad at me for telling him that. But then I finally accepted the house wholeheartedly  reason why my prayers is like that.

I hope I I have loads of space to do whatever I want to do, and hopefully too I'll be able to have a space for work out. I'm thinking of buying a bike (the one you use at the gym) for work out and who knows I might able to get a wrestling equipment too. It would be fun for friends and us to do such things together, or what I am hoping really is that "lancaster" will provide a gym area and would put a wrestling or boxing area too.

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Soon!

I can't help myself but holding my breath from excitements. Hubby and I went to the office requesting for a first visit and they scheduled it on the 15th of November. I really can't wait to finally moved to our dream house. Praying that it will soon be occupied with more people and not just us because it would creepy and super lonely if the other houses won't have people that lives in.

Needing this one

I remember  when I was the secretary of our church before, my boss would asked me to put labels on our chairs so that we won't lost any chairs whenever we lend it to church members. But this was one of my problems before because I haven't found any blank label sticker and every time that I was being asked I've got reprimanded.

If those things happen this time only, I guess I will fall in love with my job, but I dreaded it before (I mean my being the secretary) I actually felt that I've even cursed for being such. hahaha.

Those were crazy times, times that I don't want to remember, specially with church members that are too perfect for me as secretary.

Strive...

Saw "masarap diva" show of regine velasquez on gma 7 this morning. I was just surprised to know that regine  came from not a well off family and her manager has even to asked pilita corales some dress for regine to use for some show. I've heard that she even cried once because it's almost her time to go up to the stage but she was not ready yet for her dress is late. So a singer friend lend her her dress.

My point here is... poverty is not indeed  a reason for us to just embrace nothingness, co's if we only strive harder.. good thing happens.

It's all the Lords

How beautiful is the earth to live and to look at. I am thankful that it's the Lords!

Home depot

Hubby and I went to a home depot store with a friend, of course the reason why we went there was because we were looking for some good granite and good tiles for our house (good but not expensive one). Looking at those good house stuff made me wish I have a big house (not that big big though) but just enough space a  family of three (for now) but hoping we become a family of five.

How I wish I could get those beautiful lights, beautiful chandeliers and other really beautiful house stuff. Actually getting a plastic hinge for doors and cabinets is was one of our option to get for our doors and cabinets actually, because with plastic hinges it won't rust.

I can feel it coming!

Hubby and I can't help ourselves but kept on visiting the site where our soon to be house is being built. We actually wanted to go really near near the house just to see if it's done or what, but the guards won't let us.. so we just look at it from afar. Looking at rows of houses and wondering where ours would be. We don't look excited doing that right?.. lol! But actually, we probably look suspicious because we're like spies spying on something looking from afar.

Ooh.. how I can't wait to me my dream house! I can't help myself but think of the things I want to do with it. Can't even decide now what I'm going to put on my kitchen (a granite or a tile?), and I thinking as well of.. or rather wishing I could buy an automatic washing just like those with my friends in Canada.

I just have one concern though.. since it's new  develop place, market and school is nowhere to be found there. I'm wondering where to send my daughter when she starts school. I hope that when that time comes that she needs to go to school alone I could get her free prepaid cards for kids so that I won't worry that much for her. I could feel now that it's hard to be a mom when her children is out of sight.

Remember Psalms 23



Psalm 23

A psalm of David.

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.

How do you say it...

Hubby, myself and a friend were trying to figure out how this word really pronounced " les paul" with the "s" sound, but based on what I learned school it pronounced as "le paul" as if there is no "s". Then my friend says so too that "s" is silent, but my beloved husband stood his ground and say no it's "les paul". I want to argue more but decided to keep quiet instead, probably it's how they pronounced... I mean the music artist people.

Well, my hubby and his friends are really a fan of gibson and all they're musical stuff. How they probably wished that they are doing their recording at Gibson Les Paul Studio. If they could only afford to pay for it they probably would go for it.  I am proud of my hubby's band co's it won't matter to them if they are invited to perform with pay or not as long as their music is be heard... that is that matters.

Nagpipigil

Oo, tama! Nagpipigil ako ng aking pagka-inis sa isang taong malapit din naman sa akin. Isang taong masasabi akong itinuturing na kaibigan. Minsan siguro kasi kailangan talagang dumaan sa sitwasyon naganito para pa mas lalong tumindi ang pagkakaibigan.
Ang hindi ko kasi maintindihan ay bakit kelangan niyang panghinasukan ang personal naming buhay. Nung makalawa ay pumunta kami sa isang lugar at ang frend kung ito ay nagnanais na sumabay sa asawa ko. Sabi ng asawa ko ay kung di sasama ang mag-ina ko ay isasabay kita pero kung sasama sila ay pasensiya nalang.
Nung malaman niyang sasama ako ay wala naman siyang terrible/horrible reaction pero ramdam ko na "he develop this hatred or bitterness towards me" na ikinalulungkot ko naman.
Nalulungkot ako dahil alam ko sa sarili ko na kayang kong magtiis para sa pakikipagkaibigan pero di ko kayang magtiis ng pang-matagalan. :(

Cigars and Uncle

Actually I don't smoke and hoping I would never will and not even someone in my family. I am not against those people who did but I do hope it won't happen to me. I don't have the money for cigar, I'd rather spend my money for food. I actually  have friends or even relatives who smoke cigars and they would probably get a daily cigar deals when they saw one. My uncle would spend  a lot of money for a cigar which makes really sad co'z they don't have enough money for food and she has loads of children. He's children sometimes don't eat three times a day sometimes just once or twice. I just hope that he would rather prioritize his children's needs rather than his vices.

Hubby needs a motorcycle jackets

Hubby just bought a jacket last month I think to use whenever he uses his motorbike which he uses almost everyday to get to work. He bought the jacket because it was cheap and nice. He also thought that he could use it for a long time co'z the fabric seems durable. But since he wear it on a rainy day and even on a sunny day the color fades from black to almost gray now. So it look old and almost worn out. I really wish though that I could buy hubby a motorcycle  at  a Wholesale Jackets store. For sure their item would last longer than those we just bought from a local store.

This jacket below is really cool. Hubby would be very happy if I would buy this for him. I really wish I could.

Wish I could visit Japan

Looking at this picture made me think of Japan and my desire to visit this place someday (God's permit). I've been dreaming of sitting down (picnicking style) under these beautiful trees. 
I would love to feel HIS presence as I enjoy the beauty of His creation when time comes.
I love you Lord and You are indeed beautiful!

Knee Support

I salute to those people who may physically handicapped but whose will power is more than of those who look normal.  I know someone who's been paralyzed since she was young, she can't move her hands but now a really great artist and her works (painting and drawings) are all over the world. There are those who has no legs and arms but are better swimmers. Some who's support is just a wheelchair but are good basketball players.
They don't live life according to their situations... they actually outlived their lives!

it saddened me to see children who physically not normal and their parents cannot give them the proper medications and treatment due to lack of financial thing. I really hope and pray that some able people or organizations will be able to meet their needs. I hope they could get a roll about knee walker at andrew street if they need a knee support to make them go anywhere they want and live a normal life. God bless the handicapped peeps!

You will be missed!

RIP: Hon. Jesse Robredo

My games

I went to my friend's house to stay for the day with my baby. We did nothing but sweet things. lol! We cooked, we ate, we play games on her computer and we slept our heart out. The sad thing happens when while I was playing my one yea old baby girl hit her face on the corner of the side table. It left a little scratched that made me feel guilty.

What bog me though is we can't copy the game to my USB. No matter how we do it it's just wont work on my computer. It's makes me super sad co'z i now home and all I can do is think of it. I do wish my friend will get an online data backups, where she can save it there, and maybe I can get it from there. Just thinking though. 

Just for fun

It's crazy but it's true

My co Filipino's would indeed do this just to save their lives and some. 
They would never think of the danger it may give in doing such as long as they knew that they'll be safer this way. 
I don't think I can do this though.

Watermelon

Watermelon is one of my favorite fruit. Some told me before that there is really nothing you can get from this fruit aside from water. At first it saddened me... but who cares anyway. I still love it specially when it's cold during a hot or warm humid days.

I can't help copying this fact and posting it here when I found that there's new studies about the fruits health benefits.


WATERMELON Health Benefits

The more we study watermelon, the more we realize just how incredible this fruit really is.

It’s full of antioxidants shown to reduce the inflammation that contributes to diabetes, asthma, atherosclerosis, colon cancer, and arthritis - but that’s not all.

Other beneficial ingredients in watermelon are known as Phytonutrients - which are naturally occurring compounds that are bioactive and able to trigger healthy reactions within our body.

1. Asthma – The antioxidants, such as Citrulline in watermelon can reduce toxins in the body. Some of these toxins are believed to trigger asthma attacks.

2. Arthritis – Watermelon is rich in Vitamin C and Beta-Carotenes. Both have anti-inflammatory properties that can help relieve the symptoms of arthritis.

3. Bladder Problems – Containing 92% water, this melon acts as a natural diuretic that cleanses your kidney and bladder.

4. High Cholesterol – The cleansing properties of watermelon may also reduce the risk of clogged arteries. The fruit is also believed to increase HDL (good cholesterol levels).

5. Constipation – A glass of watermelon juice can naturally eliminate waste and promote proper digestion.

6. Bloating – Again, the diuretic effect of watermelon can eliminate water retention. It is especially recommended for women who retain fluids during menstruation or pregnancy.

7. Heart Disease – Watermelon contains Folic acid and Citrulline that works in tandem with other essential vitamins. Some research indicates that these vitamins may reduce the risk of a heart attack, stroke and colon cancer.

8. Itchy Skin – As the water from the melon cleanses your system, it can flush out the toxic waste that cause some forms of itchiness.

9. Prostate Cancer – The Lycopene in watermelon has been extensively reported to reduce the risk of prostate cancer.

10. Blemishes – Watermelon can also be used as a beauty aid to reduce skin blemishes. Simply rub your skin with a small piece of watermelon. Leave the juice on for 10 minutes before rinsing.

The wallet

I bought a lady wallet just very recently. My old one is still good though but I have that wallet since 2005 and it's already 2012.  That wallet was a gift for my birthday from my youth pastor reason why it was so special to me. But since there's no coin  holder there I cannot  keep my coins I have to give it away or give it to hubby.

I actually find this rfid leather wallet but it looks like a men wallet though but really nice. It's good for hubby's co'z he is my finance manager (means... he keeps the money). I am happy that my new wallet this time has money even if not that much... but still it has some amount in it.

The Bible

Got this from a friend on facebook. I can't help but smile and think of Jesus looking at me smiling as I read His words and stories in the Bible. I can't help but smile as well. Thanks to the one who made this quote. This really inspires me.

Simply creepy!

It happen to us a lot of times when our credit card got denied due to it already reach it credit limit, then the cashier lady would asked us questions like... "sir, you really own this card?". Part of me would like yo yell at the lady telling her that "yes ma'am.. its his/ours!" but of course I won't remembering I am a follower of Jesus (meaning: I am a Christian) and we should not display such attitude. There were actually time that the cashier would have to looked  and looked and compare hubby's signature just to make sure if it really matches with the cards signature. Probably hubby don't look  like he can own a credit card (lol!). I wonder though if it's mine if they will still do the same. Just imagine someone is having a background check on you co'z you look suspicious. Isn't that creepy?, even though actually at work when your boss is  having a background check on you is not really nice thought. Everyone has flaws and secret they don't want to disclose to others and having it known is really not good.

In fairness with those who has good intentions in doing so specially hiring people it's good to have this kind of personal checking to avoid fraud and problems in the future.

Thinking of Jesus Today

I woke up this morning thinking of God, my family and my life in general. That book I was reading about the life of Mother Teresa of Calcutta really made me evaluate my follower of Jesus life. I can't help but compare myself with her which is very absurd co'z mine is not even far close (east-west far). 

Part of me wonder what life would be if your in Mother Teresa shoes. One thing I have conclude though is... I could be a follower of Jesus and could do what Mother Teresa did in my small (teeny tiny) way.

I wonder

Everyone is entitled for a life insurance but I wonder who among my friends has one? I don't have any nor is near in getting one co'z I don't have the means to pay it. In the Philippines life insurance is only for those who can afford to pay or let's say.. the rich people. A person like me would never even think about it, much more those who only get hundred pesos pay for a day, it probably doesn't even heard. So funny but true. It's very  opposite in the West... where a life insurance is a must, reason why there are loads of  quotes online you can find specially at http://www.equote.com co'z every individual there must have one.

As for me I just let  God be my life insurance co'z there is no way here and now I can have one. I'd rather spend my money for  food and my baby's need than pay for a life insurance. But I totally recommend getting it to those who can afford. It's a must have... I must say.

Hotel Bathrooms

I was at Intercontinental hotel-Makati the other day.  It's not that it was me who checked in there. I stayed at my friend for the night co'z she was going back to Canada. Our first plan was to lay by the pool and so i brought my bathing suit, but to our dismay it rained. So instead we lie down on her bed, watch television and slept. I was actually excited to go swimming by the pool because of my baby Z. And because we were not able to swim we just let her splash at the bath tub.

I love hotel's shower room, in fact I just told my friend that I want something like it in my house. I wish my house is big so that I can have a bigger bathroom too. I wish I have a tab to have a tab top curtains and a cabinet full of soft comfy towels. Actually what I really wish is to have a room like a hotel.

It was her birthday

It was her birthday last Saturday and of course a midst all worries and anxieties  with the expenses was the main reason things went well and I thank God for that. We did not pay more than we thought we would pay even though we still pay more than what's in the contract. I had fun and it looks that my guest had fun too. My baby got loads of gifts from friends and relatives. She gets cash (which is very helpful. lol), clothes, shoes, learning materials and toys. She got this giraffe toy from her ninang, but this toy needs a battery to operate (wish I could go and get a battery now even if it's not a vtech batteries as long it can make this giraffe move).  I told hubby to buy but he kept on telling me too that what we need is our rechargeable battery which is with his sister, but her sister kept on forgetting to bring it here. So the toy is still sitting in the toy stand waiting to play with my baby Z. 




I so want a dress

I was telling my friend about how my very few formal dresses won't fit me anymore and attending formal occasions needs an effort for me. My friend and I planned about shopping for a dress but since we got so busy it never happened. So.. she instead told me to fit her dress and if it fits me its mine but sadly to say it didn't.

I facing two weddings in row this near end this year and it means I need to find a formal plus size dresses and doing that is no easy thing, I would rather go shops for shoes and shorts than shopping for dresses. I really hope that I'll able to trim my diet and at least lost a pound or two every week. :)

Aha!

Yuppy..yuppy.. yup!
I really hope and pray that my heart will be forever thankful about those difficult people in my life. I hope I will indeed learn from them.

It is so true that those difficult people showed me what I do not want to be :)

How....?

I can't wait anymore, I can't wait to finally move to our house (owned one). I can't help but think of what should I do to make it look wider and lovelier co'z I know it's really small. I am thinking now of to do with my kitchen since that's my place. I am planning to put more cabinets and cupboards. In fact I am convincing hubby to buy me a microwave oven now to lessen the stuff we're buying. I might as well buy some metal shelving to put my pans and other kitchen stuff.

But actually thinking of that house made me nervous as well as very excited. I really hope that we will get it soon. I pray that the built is good and durable for our security of course. I really can't wait!

Laundry day: a tough day

I did laundry for two consecutive days. It was two days because I did not wash our dirty clothes for two weeks. Just imagine two adults and a almost a toddler changed clothes twice a day (actually by baby would change three times plus other clothing we use for wiping). Indeed I have a room of it (of course exaggerating here).

I wish we have fire hose adapters so that I don't have to lift up the pails co'z doing this thing tire me more. Doing laundry here quite needs some effort, strength and courage. Goodness, the thought of it makes me weak. hahaha. i hope hubby would buy the hose adapter for me.

Poor eyesight

Hubby went to bring the van back at our office very early in the morning. He borrowed it to dropped our friends off at the airport, then he brought it to the house to dropped us off too. He also dropped his sister on where she could get a bus to her school going back to return the van. Trust me... hubby has loads of dropping job that early Tuesday morning. hahaha

He came home though a bit irritated because it took him all his voice yelling at his sister telling her that the bus coming her way was the right bus. On the other hand, his sister has poor eyesight and is badly needed of an eyeglasses reason why she hubby wanted to helped her find the right bus. How I wish I could buy her eyeglasses at GreatEyeglasses.com for progressive eyeglasses.

Poor sister in law, she got scolded by older bro when she gets home from school. Ooh siblings!

wagas

Oo, wagas na katamaran ang aking nararamdaman sa kasalukuyan. Mabigat ang pakiramdam dahil kain ng kain wala naman ginagawa. Kaya.. eto, pahiga higa nalang habang nagco-computer. Hay... buhay tamad... nakakatamad.

Pero, in fairness naman, nung mga nakaraang araw ay marami din naman akong nagawa at napuntahan at kung anu-ano pang mga bagay na pinagkaabalahan. kaya siguro ngayon ko lang naramdaman ang matinding katamaran na ito.

Sana ngayon lang at mamaya ay wala na.

...tired shopping...

I went shopping with friends yesterday. It's not that I wanted to shop, I just accompanied my friends. I never knew that one of them was a shopaholic. It took us long time hopping from shops to shops because whenever she's about to pay her things, she founds something else. It's both funny and crazy plus so tiring and thirsty.

What was not good was I spent almost a thousand for a body bag not a leather briefcase (but this thing would be good for hubby). I also got a wallet, bought my baby some clothes and eat three times while we were at the mall. I've got a four thousand pesos on my wallet and when I look at it last night it's only just over a thousand I think. I couldn't believe myself that I was quite a spender. whoa!

Hubby is a bookkeeper...

...and so do I. Hubby has been doing the job for quite a while and I just got the job for a year. Hubby likes it but I don't and he does my work sometime (woo oh, don't get me wrong, he also get the payment). He is quite good at this thing even though he did not take any bookkeeping course while me on the other hand who has an accounting course but did not major on it has no patience in doing this job.

I actually believe that hubby needs an insurance for bookkeepers, but my question is, who would give him that. The church that he's been employed as a free lance bookkeeper cannot even give him/us our pay regularly. hahaha. He also does another book keeping job with our teams money and his allowance is on an off because of lack of funds. We are just thankful co'z the Lord we serve is never lacking of anything and has supply our needs according to His riches in heaven. I just love my Jesus.. my God!

I miss my games

I did not open my facebook account for a long time nor play my online games. I'm quite an "atta girl". But honestly, it's quite a struggle not to do it specially that we did not but lay down in our room and watched movies over this busted almost black and white television. My mind would sometimes tricked me though.

So there was this one time when I finally convinced my friends that we go online. I was hoping they would stay for long at the computer, but to my dismay, it took them just 10 minutes while I was still loads of things in mind to do. How I wish I could play my games though is was not from buffalogames.com (but I'm hoping to visit them and see their games) but it was still good for me.

I'm planning next I go out of town, I'll bring my family and my netbook. Lol!

It was still fun!


I was away for three four days and three nights and all that time I was missed my baby Ziah. I left her to her dad's care while I was away to a beach.

Our trip was quite rough co'z many things happen to us like: we were not able to ride the last trip boat going to the place, we only have one bed to slept for the night and there were 3 of us (and we are not petite people). Then when we get finally to the beach we cannot even go near the sea co'z the waves was humongous. Our room was not that good co'z there is no shower.
But to sum it all: IT WAS FUN! I had great time

On our way home I took this picture. I took picture of the sea house, a very house like boat. But you can barely see it.

I like Summer but not the humid heat!

It's typhoon season already este just rainy season but ever since the first of June typhoon after typhoon is dropping by here in the Phils. How I long for the summer that passed by. I miss it (I mean just the sunny day though not the heat and humid). I have this feeling of going outside to do some picnicking.

Hubby was looking an outdoor table that is good to put outside specially if you have a big lawn where you can set up a picnic table and to make sure it won't worn out that easily don't forget to put a picnic table cover. It won't cover your table from unwanted dirt it will also make it good to look at.

Ooh summer.. come again please in a friendly way! :)

Hubby and his motorbike

I'm a woman and needs some women friends co'z there is no way I could live with just hubby and his thinking, stuff, likes and dislikes. Don't get me wrong: I love my husband that I would do anything in this world for him. But I cannot stand him all day twenty-four/seven. He will drive me crazy and mad.

I just realized that no matter how you want or love a person; may it be a friend, a family, children or a husband... you needed some time away from them or else you'll end up hating them for the rest of your life.

Just this morning hubby woke up, went outside to see his motorbike and found some ants eating his seats, that thing drove him mad and sad. Of course there's no one there to listen but me. It's not only about the ants but the whole thing about what's happening in all his gadget..y. He kept on telling me that some parts of his bike is broken and I don't know if it includes the linear bearings. I kept on telling him to go and let it fix but he doesn't go. So whenever he would whine about this thing again, I pretend I don't listen.

But its hard co'z I do listen and there's no way I can't co'z there's only me and him.

Wish to buy..

Hubby and I went to a mall yesterday to look for some clothes I could wear on my adorable little girl birthday. After we went shopping we also went to the supermarket to do some grocery shopping as well. We bought loads of grocery since we haven't done any grocery-ing for a month I think.

Well, what I really wan to say in here was how my though were filled during the motorbike ride going there. My mind brought me to think of my friends who has no motorbike and always needs assistance whenever we they need to go to the recording studio. My heart went up to them and made me wish I have more money to spend. In mind I was dreamed that I bought them a motorbike. I really wish it was true.

When hubby and his friends are together for sure there are only three topics they love to discuss: their music, their gadget and roll about scooter or motorbike. I wish our other two friends will gonna theirs too.

I pray that they'll get a house too. (near where we live!)

Good Real State Agent

I talked to this lady I've known for only a few weeks. She's nice, smart, gorgeous and wealthy. I actually can't believe that she told me her life story. I also don't know why I bumped into people who has money but needs a friend to tell their story or just what is in their mind. This happen to me before already and has happened again. I just pray that the Lord will indeed guide and bless them, and that in spite of their having money and material things, they will still see the need of Jesus in their lives.

She stayed in Singapore for fifteen years and worked there as a real state agent and she was very good at this and in fact loads of business people knew her. And because of it she accumulate loads of money and because she's good you can bring her anywhere even at Oak Island real estate and I'm sure she'll be good there as well.

Talking with her makes me made an assessment of what a rich business woman is thinking and doing and with that I don't think I'll fit in that rich man world.

One month one song

I went to the recording studio with hubby last night. I am not actually needed there co'z don't do anything. I go just to accompany hubby because I don't want him to come home alone and very late. I don't mind at all going to the studio specially when I have to see friends there.

It has been almost four weeks doing the first song but until today it is raw and not yet done. Our band team specially our band leader is so meticulous. I don't know how they figure out the difference of every guitar strums and drum beats co'z to me its all good.

If this band has only loads of money they probably have put up a studio themselves, then all that they would do is jam. Hubby would probably suggest that they should invest their money on gretsch acoustic guitars so that their sounds would be more interesting and I guess that majority of the band will agree.

We're four and still counting

Yesterday was our fourth wedding anniversary. And to celebrate it, hubby and I went to Tagaytay. While we were there we visited a park called picnic grove. We really did nothing there, we just sat down on the grass munch some chips and drink a bottle of buko shake. Sitting on the grass and looking at the sky and the beautiful taal volcano and lake was indeed a glorious one. It made think of a best backyard cabana actually. It made me wish of things I don't have. I praise God though co'z inspite of the earthly desires I have, He makes me feel contented and thankful for what I have.



Then when dinner time came hubby and I went to chicboy restaurant to eat. This is not a fancy restaurant just any food chain like mcdonalds, but since we haven't been to this... and friends told us that it's really good there, we decided to dine there. The food was good but I would be delighted if it's jollibee chicken joy instead. Lol!

After the dinner we went to starbucks for caramel machiato and a slice of cheesecake. It was indeed a beautiful day.

Thank you Lord!

Puerto Galera White Beach: Bus and Boat

From Buendia bus stop (there are two bus station there: one along Buendia-Taft and the is along Buendia highway). It would take two hours or more (depending on traffic) to get to Batanggas Port and it would take each passenger php 150-200 for bus fare depending on bus rate. Some bus rate are higher than the other, sorry though for I cannot tell which is which.

When at the Port: be careful to watch for your belongings co'z a lot of people both with good hearts and not are around you. Some shipping/boat staff will tell you to get boat tickets from them. A boat ticket will cost php 250 one way but some shipping lines will give you discounts of 450 if you get a two way ticket. After getting the ticket you need to pay for an environmental fee which cost you php 50 (Senior citizens though has to pay php 40 only as long as you have your ID with you), and children 12yr old and blow are exempted together with those who lives in Puerto Galera and Oriental Mindoro Province.

Boats leaves Batanggas port at 6am first trip and 5pm is the last trip. Then Boats leaves Puerto Galera (whichever Beach you are) at 7am first trip and 430 last trip. Make sure that you confirmed the shipping/boat staff about your ticket an hour early from the departure time when leaving Puerto Galera beach to avoid hassle or any trouble. Make sure you are around boat vicinity an hour ahead.

When it regards to the hotel, Appartelle or Inn for your stay, You could either book online or go to the place and do the booking while you're already there. Nothing to worries co'z there are loads of place to stay and the beach is open in season and out season (I mean summer or not).

I am writing this in the hope that I myself and my friends will be able to use it whenever they think of going to Puerto Galera. My inspiration of writing are my friends that comes from the other country and who's heart are set to enjoy the mesmerizing white or Sabang beach, not to mention the falls and other beautiful scenery in this place. It's indeed more fun in the Philippines!

Skin Pampering in mind

It's been awhile now that I been wanting to go to a spa: for a full body massage, to go to a salon: for a hair-care, foots-spa, manicure and pedicure, warts removal and a whole lot more. When sometimes I happen to visit department store, I can't help myself but look on the beauty section and try looking for cheap beauty products.

It sad thing to say that even though I saw some (not maybe the cheapest but still compare to the original price), but I still cannot buy it co'z I don't have a cash with me and hubby is nowhere to be found as well. I wish that someone would gift me cleopatra's product, specially this time that it's cleopatras choice sale, these product is definitely good for a stayed at home mom.

She's a cry baby today :(

She's not happy today I don't know why. Her fever have left her already since last night which makes me and hubby very thankful.  I tried to read her books with but she just seems not interested. She keeps on making a baby-cry sound but no tears in her eyes though. She doesn't want milk, water, or toys, all that she wants is tossed herself around.

She doesn't even want to watch her most favorite video. We play it on just a few minutes ago but she just doesn't care at all. I wonder though if her tummy is aches, or her gums is really hurts so bad because of coming out teeth, or just nothing at all. Probably she'll quit crying if I give her a 70s retro candy or give her the dolls below. Well, I don't really know the cause of the cry, but as a mom, my baby could always depend  on me co'z my love will never fail even with such annoying tantrums.

 beautiful rag dolls
personalizable rag doll + accessories

It's crazy but it's true...

...that I'm feelin' a little bit low. We have a little party last night here at house for my sister in-law twenty-fourth  birthday. She actually had only one visitor: her best friend from work. We had spaghetti, stir-fried noodles (or pansit canton), fried chicken and a cake.

Though the cake was not for sure good as the berries cake but it served well with me. I probably could consume a whole round one  in three days co'z it's really yummy. I know full well that It's hard to do that co'z I'm with the in-laws and doing such would horrify them. But it bogs me co'z I know I can buy a whole bunch of it if I really want to, but I don't want to do that. It bogs me also that I cannot do my thing to avoid bad talks.

I am having this annoying feeling and it's putting me down. I wish hubby would buy me this get well gifts to ease feelings like this. I'm thankful though that I have this blog of mine to write my thoughts feelings and emotions.

Happy birthday daddy Doy! (May 6,1985).
Love you! God bless!

Addiction

I am not a coffee addict co'z I can still go without coffee but I won't hide the truth that most of the time I really crave to have a cup of it. I like it more with cream and sugar but there are rare times that I want it black and bitter which is weird (but that is just happen once in a blue moon if there's a blue moon really). My office-mate has went withdrawal stage when she decided to quit coffee for awhile. I just hope happen to me.

I just wonder though how those people feeling-those who is addicted to coffee and cigarette and alcohol. I just can't think what would happen to them when they will tried to stop doing such. They probably go crazy for awhile which is a very awful feeling. Quitting is really hard specially when you're really not into it specially now a days that temptations are all over the place. When you go to the mall coffee shops are everywhere, famous cigars shops are in every corner, and alcohol is very cheap.

I hope though that those who decide to quit will have great will power to indeed put and end if these things just give them trouble.

The need to chill in a hotel :)

The heat is driving me to think of a cooler place such as North America or an up town place or  a cold hotel room or just as simple and the cheapest of them all... a mall, but none of that I'm going.. which is so sad.  I was browsing online the other night hoping to see a cheaper deal for a hotel stay, but, alas! I found... none! All hotels are expensive, it's beyond my budget.

Well, I was hoping though that I'll be able to see a cheap deal in the hotel where we stayed after my wedding. Yet the cost for a night stay with breakfast is less than two thousand five hundred but no more than that. It's quite tempting to book for a night but I did not give in to the temptation, I held my ground. I just dream about it instead, in fact I'm day dreaming that I'm inside the cold room snuggling with hubby while watching a movie on a flat screen tv standing on it's flat screen TV mounts. A room with no mess and nothing to clean about. Then  have a full body massage in the room. Wow! what a life.

I wish someone will book a night for me as a birthday present. This would be an awesome gift.

My Princess Ziah :)

Yup! she is our adorable little princess, and this little princess is lying down close to her tita right now watching a baby einstein video on tita Lara's cellphone. She cries whenever video loads because she thought that Lara turn it off, what a funny baby! With all these baby's whining and crying and mess and all.... it's just make me love her more!
I love you more anak!

Normal and wishful thinking!

I like to watch American Idol specially now that Jennifer Lopez is one of the judges, I don't idolized her but I just like her as a person. I know she has loads of flaws but since I don't really know what she is going through with her life I still just don't care. Still I think she lives a sound life. I hope and pray though that one day she'll give her life to Jesus!

Thinking of her made me also think of the wealth she had accumulated because of being an artist, and thinking of wealth made me also wonder how does it feel to be rich. Having billions in the bank, huge mansions, a lot of house help, always good food on the table, loads of cars and a huge lawn.  I don't know what I would do with my life if I'm living in a life like this. I can't even imagine a life like it.

Probably if I have a lawn like this (picture below) I probably have loads of push reel mower just like that picture below and of course with that I'll hire loads of people to do my lawn.  I might also put up an orphanage and I won't look for volunteers but instead hire people to take good care of the kids and the admin.

(photos are from the Google and not own)



One thing is for sure though... If I am rich... I'll help people. I will make programs that just won't help them get though the night but a program that will help them a life time!

Happy Mom's Day!

Happy mother's day!

I need to buy a dvd player

...I just don't know when though. Our dvd player got broken December last year, just on time when we are about to move with the in-laws. It got broken because we always play our little Z's baby einstein videos. Playing the video helped us make stay in one corner specially this time that she can now crawl fast, it's sometimes hard to make her just sit and not to go to things or area in the house that is not suitable for children to play.

In-laws dvd's is almost waving it's good bye too co'z there were times when it got stuck and doesn't play. So this means that we need to buy a new dvd player and of course with that we also might purchase dvds for Ziah and for our viewings too. I haven't been to the movie store for a long time now and thinking of a visit there makes me excited.

Hopefully  I could visit soon!

Rants about last night

I can't help but write down my day to day life as a daughter/sister in-law, a mom and a wife. The mother in-law is a working mom and I'm always left alone with the in-laws since school is off because it's summer vacation. This means I have to prepare food for them co'z the mom in-law is away. Then I have to cook food for dinner even with times that I don't feel like it.

I am not complaining at all co'z before we live with them I told myself I will do this as my ministry since I don't do ministry at church I will instead do it with hubby's fam. Yet, tough times really comes even to ministries and I had last night. Hubby came home when it was almost dark and he asked for food, but the your's truly here haven't prepared anything yet co'z I was watching american idol.

Hubby didn't mind at all that there's no food yet but he nagged me again about the credit card I borrowed from him the previous day. He scolded me for not returning it in his wallet co'z he went to the grocery to buy some stuff that I asked him to and when he was about pay the items the card wasn't there. So he came home annoyed and irritated.

Then what's add to the not so good mood in the house was it's after eight already and I was still cooking when we run out of cooking gas. So mom has to go out to buy and she came home she got the wrong gas tank co'z it wouldn't fit and the hose was kind of rusty, so these things made hubby's world pitch black and he became more irritated. How I wish the hose was made of teflon hose so that it will last for sometimes and probably would make things easier.

Anyways, we ate late and praise God things are good again today.

I can't make it small :(

This the text for my previous post. I tried to make it small or at least screen fit but I don't know why it just won't let me.

That photo of my daughter with her aunt was taken last Monday during our family outing. I did not enjoy the swimming that much because the pool water was very dirty and still there were loads of children and adult swimming in. The resort was not our first choice, in fact it was never in our list or plan.

The agreed venue just did not suit to one of hubby's aunt reason we went looking for another resort again. I was not that satisfied, but still with in-laws around it was still fun.


Almost over the edge

This is just a wife rant and nothing is too serious!

I almost gave up and give in to my normal self and forget about the in-laws were around. My beloved almost drove me real crazy with his annoying nagging about my scattered stuff; e.g. netbook on the couch, charger on the chair, mouse pad and mouse on  the dining table and plus my little Z's stuff were all around the house too.

It's probably just okay with me when he would nagged me about all these stuff when its just us, but it's really different thing when in-laws are around and hubby is talking to me like boss reprimanding his secretary. The thing is, when hubby starts seeing things he doesn't like.. he even dig  deeper and goes beyond what is normally seen, he's like a barcode scanner that scans things in our house, making sure everything is in the way it should be just like the way he puts it.

It actually drives me crazy when he's like that. It made me want to  mess more just to get even with him. It made me wish in-laws are somewhere and not home so that I can just be me and yell back to the husband(ness). Yet all I could do is wish and still look nice even though I'm burning inside. Then after a few hours we're good again.

Video Conference with friends abroad...

Not a good phone talker I am nor with video talking, I'd rather send a long letter where you can read five minutes than talk an hour. There was this time when hubby was away and did not text co'z he was saving his load for a call but  I told hubby to send me a text rather.

A friend to lives in South America called last week through a video call. We talked for about an hour I'm so annoyed of myself co'z I don't have any interesting topic to tell knowing we haven't seen or talk for a long time already.  All I can say was: "hi, hello, and how are you?" Then another friend wrote to us a letter telling us a bunch of things and for her last message she said we need to set a date for a video call.

What bogs me with regards to this video call is it's sometimes hard to connect and a lot of other undesirable things like lost connections or no voice heard or no picture/image either of the lines. These things happen specially when we're doing a conference call. How I wish hubby know something about video conferencing solutions so that he can easily fix  or trouble shoot any video calling troubles.

For a good laugh

The following has been selected and collected for all the English teachers who may have made it thus far in this book. These are a collection of notices in what may have been intended to be written in plain English. Upon reading this, our only hope is that somehow our language will survive.
 *From a hotel in Moscow: "If this is your first visit to the USSR, you are welcome to it."
 *Notice found in a travel agency in Barcelona: "Go away."
 *A Tokyo hotel has this notice on its elevator doors: "Do not open door until door opens first."
 *Another Tokyo hotel posted: "Is forbidden to steal towels, please. If you are not person to do such, please
   not to read notice."
 *A butcher in Nahariyya, Israel: "I slaughter myself twice daily."
 *This from a barber in Zanzibar: "Gentlemen's throats cut with nice sharp razors."
 *Hotel del Paseo, Mexico City: "We sorry to advice you that by a electric desperfect  in the generator master
   of the elevator we have the necessity  that don't give service at our distinguishable guests."
 *This notice was placed on every table in the dining room of a hotel in Columbo, Sri Lanka: "All vegetables in this establishment have been washed in water especially passed by the management."
 *A dentist in Hongkong: "Teeth extracted by latest methodists."
 *Another elevator sign in Tokyo: "Keep your hands away from unnecessary buttons for you."
 *A hotel in Bucharest posted this notice: "The lift is being fixed for the next four days. During this time you will be unbearable."
 *Hotel Deutschland, Leipzig: "Do not enter the lift backwards and only when lit up."
 *From the bakery, Vale of Kashmir: First-class, English loafer."
 *From a little restaurant in Mexico City: "U.S. Hots Dog."
 *A barber in Tokyo: "All customers promptly executed."
 *The Restaurant des Artistes, Montmartre: "We serve five o'clock tea at all hours." :))

Don't you love this? What a delight! How about a hand for all those marvelous, wonderful people who have composed such signs and sentences! I only hope they never open any English dictionaries as long as they promise to keep on writing such notices. *

Everything is LED

My sister in-law told me the other night that she doesn't like it that her netbook screen is made of led while me on the other hand likes it a lot. I don't though what made her think like it co'z everything now is almost made of led.

I remember when hubby and I bought our christmas lights which was led inspired and we bought three different kinds co'z we like it. I like led lights because it was said that it doesn't consume so much electricity and even those who worked on our electric company promotes this.

I also want a LED/LCD TV co'z I want it thin for more space in the house.

My heart today

This pictures below are not my own but rather copied it from friends or an inspirational site on facebook. The pictures and verses made me think of God and His faithfulness, reasons why I copied some of its picture to post it here on my blog so that I won't forget them.
Hope you too will be encourage.

Reading and understanding

If hubby is only has a good body built he must be more good looking and I will be more of a jealous wife, lol!

Well I've been thinking about testosterone lately and my curiosity has led me into looking online what testosterone really is. Testosterone-is a white crystalline steroid hormone, C19H28O2, produced primarily in the testes and responsible for the development and maintenance of male secondary sex characteristics. It is also produced synthetically for use in medical treatment.

I have found out that this thing is mainly for boys and boys alone alone. No matter how I have read and read articles about this, I still don't fully comprehend. Then if some of you would like to dig deeper about this thing feel free to read this article alpha t1 reviews co'z this might help you guys more in understanding the uses of testosterone, and please don't experiment without full knowledge of such product or any product. Doing this might harm yourself.

Have a good week ahead everyone :)

Diet?...still my dream!

I was talking to mom-in-law just awhile ago about how we got bigger these days. She blamed all the food she ate, but as for me, I put the blame on the heat co'z it's making me hungry. Sometimes I put my blame on the coffee I drink which I know "it's a shame on me" thing.

I actually tried drinking a slimming tea in the hope that it would effect on my diet, but sad to say for some health reasons. So now I go back into eating more rice which is really really bad. I can't help it, my tongue likes it and my tummy welcomes it widely open. I hope though that this diet pill that I found is really effective on me, and if you too would like to know about it just click here and see it yourself.

I wish healthy and trim body for all of us in the days ahead! :)

I'm hot and hungry

It's been a month o more that I've been feeling hot and I sweat like there's no tomorrow. It's hard to do things when you're sweating and your house feels like an oven. The worst of it is, it's also hard to think and do my paid tasks. I drink more than eight glasses of water everyday now, whereas before, I don't almost drink any water at all-specially when there is soup in my meal.

The heat and sweat makes me hungry all the time as well which is very bad for me since I don't work out, I don't go out for walk, I don't do anything that burns out fats. All I do is accumulate it rather than burning it. What adds to this fatness thing is the iced-coffee that I always asked from hubby to make me or buy me. It's no wonder my clothes almost don't fit anymore and I feel heavy too.

How I wish I have someone or at least a motivation to do some working out. If only hubby is working out and is taking some testosterone booster I probably would be going into a gym with him  and of course I also have suggested that he read some libido max reviews to see if the testosterone he is looking for is at this supplements.

But really I need some calorie burning work out.

It's hot hot hot

This hot weather here in the Phils is driving me pretty crazy. I wanted to shower three times a day but what bogged me is, even the water that comes out in our faucet is almost boiling hot as well, who could take a hot shower in the middle of a hot day then? Well, it's not me and can't be me co'z I'd rather sit in front of a fan than shower with a hot water.

If there is only a medical instrument I can use to ease this hot and warm feeling we have everyday I probably put it in my medical carts and purchase it right away.

I actually have proofs of the hotness we always feel at home:


My baby has to sleep without clothes co'z he can't sleep with it, it irritates to the maximum level, and not only that she doesn't like to wear clothes during day time, she also shower three times a day.

Yo Yo Toys for Godsons

I was at toy kingdom store-SM Bacoor yesterday. I brought my Ziah there co'z all my companions were busy of their own thing (in McDonald)... waiting for their turn of claiming their food. When I saw there were loads of people falling in line. I decided to instead visits some shops to avoid stampede (as if). At toy kingdom, I saw a lot of toys of course, some, I'd like to buy for my baby and others for my godsons and daughters.

The Yo yo toy got most my attention really co'z it made think of my godsons whom I haven't given any gift last Christmas. I was actually thinking of buying some yesterday if hubby would not only reacts to that. One of my godson loves Yo yo so much that when we were in Bangkok November of last last year, he made it a point that he'll get a yo yo from there and he did not care enough when the saleslady ripped him of his money co'z she sells it to him in high price. I wonder though if that yo yo is still alive or it has  yoyo string still. I am thinking of giving him yo yo string instead.

I felt bad though that I haven't got any gift for my "inaanaks" co'z for sure they'll all be waiting for me to give them their gifts. I hope and pray that this year will be a good year for me and I'll be able to save money for Christmas gift for them.

Guitars and Hubby

Hubby was teaching guitar lessons to two of his siblings the other day. Of course his youngest brother is more unto it than his youngest sister. The youngest brother even brought hubby's acoustic guitar in their room for practice.  I hope he'll able to learn how to play guitar this summer.

I been posting here about my hubby's guitars. He has three guitars: one acoustic and two electric. The acoustic guitar has no case, the two electric has soft cases but his all time favorite electric guitar has not only the soft case but also has a leather hard case. Anyone can mess up hubby's life if they want, but never his guitars. His leather case has no scratch yet which is we are very thankful or else hubby would be very mad and would be looking for a leather scratch repair and he will pay no matter how much as long as his leather case would look good again.

I also hope though that our daughter will also learn to play guitar and become really good at it just like her dad, for sure I would be a proud momma ever.

Bins

My house has a big trash bin in front but with no lid, so every time I went outside I cannot help myself but look inside the garbage bin and compare ours from the neighbors. It bogged me that we cannot find a lid for it so that our trash won't exposed and it won't also smell bad.

If only our house has a backyard space, I do the segregation thing and probably will also buy some compost bin from the worm factory. What I can't promise though is the worm thing.

Needs follow-up

The sixteen months is almost over and the promised take-over is not yet follow-up, part of me is excited co'z I know one of these days I'll be moving again to another house and this time hopefully  would be the last time as in last. Thinking of occupying the house makes me excited and my mind is flooded with so many ideas of designs and stuff to buy for the new house.

First thing  we need to do though is to tile the floor,  set up cabinets, set-up wooden bunk beds for in-laws, and set-up the laundry area.  Since we don't have a car yet to make a residential steel garages, hubby and I have decided that we are going to landscape the lawn first.  Hubby gets design ideas from the set-up model house from our developer.

It seems that we have a lot plans but actually everything still depends on God alone co'z we don't have the means to buy or do these all, but we believe in the promises of Him who made this dream house possible.

Six Reasons to visit Arrieta


Six reasons to visit Arrieta

There are several reasons to visit Arietta, a village in Spain’s Canary Islands:

1. Arrieta is a picturesque village on the Spanish island of Lanzarote. Complete with fine sand beaches, rolling hills, and bright blue skies, Arrieta is an excellent reason to book flights to Lanzarote.

2. Arrieta is, as of yet, almost untouched by tour operators. This is not because the town doesn’t have anything to offer visitors, it just simply hasn’t been included in package tour destinations. As a result, visitors to Arrieta can still experience a lot of the local culture and really get to see what day-to-day life is like for locals. Another plus is that there won’t be mobs of camera wielding tourists to manoeuvre around.

3. The Blue House is a great place to visit as it is completely different from any other building in Arrieta. It is situated right near the harbour and violates all the strictly enforced building laws that Arrieta’s inhabitants must adhere to. Instead of being built of white plaster or volcanic stone, the Blue House is constructed out of red bricks and blue tiles.

4. Playa La Garita is Arrieta’s beach and is certainly worth a visit. The beach has gentle shelves, soft golden sand, and has even received a Blue Flag Award. There are certain times of year that the high tide creates great waves and surfers from all over the island come to Arrieta to take advantage of them while they last.

5. Camping is a favourite recreation among the locals and the farther end of the beach is an ideal location. Camping in Arrieta includes more mobile homes and campervans than tents as the use of tents is prohibited.

6. If for nothing else, dining at the village restaurants is worth a visit to Arrieta. Most restaurants specialize in fresh fish, but a select few can also boast of a view overlooking the water.

Is going to a Youth Camp

It has been a while since my last youth camp attend and thinking about going to one in a few hours reminds me of things we did before. My last camp was over a year ago and it was a family camp and I was assigned to take care of infants and toddlers. Ooh... if I could avoid that to happen again I probably would. It was all chaos, shouting in here-yelling in there, crying in here-fighting in there. Goodness! I was soaking with my sweat all through out camp time, and was so exhausted during night time that I don't wanna talk, listen or just do anything. All I want is shower, peace and rest! I expect that this time would be different co'z it's a youth camp and the only baby I have to take care of is my adorable baby Z, plus, I am with friends and I know things would be just fine.

Thinking of going away for several days made me also think of my online responsibilities. I know I cannot I check my emails and facebook and worst of all I cannot do any blogging. I  have several emails about company's that would like me to publish their software promotion on my blog, but since I'm always on the go, I don't find time to sit down review the product and promote it. I just hope though that in the future I find courage and wisdom how to do it.

Three guitars

The husband here has three guitar, one acoustic and two electric. I don't why he is collecting guitars and had even asked his sister to tell her fiance' who is currently working in Dubai to buy him another guitar as "pasalubong". Hearing him uttered the words made me yell at him, how could he do that and what is another guitar for?!  This made me want to sell his guitar for an iPad or tomtom gps anyway we're always on the go, these stuff is a great help I think than a new guitar again.

It boggles my mind how boys love to collect this thing and it boggles my mind more how hubby is not satisfied of having three. Yet... I may look not into it, I mean of him collecting guitars, but, if I have money to buy a really  really good quality guitar, I probably would get one also for his birthday.

I probably just love him enough to give in to his hobbies.

Airports: NAIA 3, Mactan Cebu

The trip was fun but tiring and yet since we do it for a greater purpose, we just worshiped all tiredness goodbye. I got sick though and actually still is, but, it's no compare to what the Lord has done for us. I am so much thankful that He made it possible for me and my family to experienced Cebu for the second time.

These two pictures below were taken inside Manila International Airport 3.

A t-shirt with my name

I have perfume allergy, this allergy causes me drowsiness with cough and cold, and I don't like feeling sick because: first, I have baby to take care of and the thought of her getting my sickness is quite unlikable, second is that... in two days time my family is going for a four day trip and definitely I  don't want to be sick in this trip.

I am very excited for this trip because this is the very first time that my little girl will be riding in an airplane. I don't know what to expect of her during the ride since I haven't experience it yet with her. But I just hope and pray that all thing will be good. One thing for sure is...  there's gonna be loads of photos of her during the ride.

Hubby is going to play with the band in the conference and though I don't sing or play with the band I am somehow part of this team even though I have a very little humble part but I am happy I am part of it. My friend told me that we might get a t-shirt where we can print the band's name and I'm hoping my name is on it too. My friend has a printing business though and I know that having our team t-shirt printed is no problem at all. Their printing business is just small  and they don't have plastic cards printing yet, maybe in the future if God's permit their business will grow and more printing business to offer.

I pray that this week will gonna be a good good week :). I expect to see more of Jesus (His presence, holiness, faithfulness, provisions and miracle).

at Glorietta Park

My brother in-law posses at one of the big stone at Glorietta park during our visits. This was his first time since they moved to Cavite. My mom-in-law felt sad that she can no longer bring her youngs  to places like this, whereas before, she had brought my husband-the eldest of four children and her daughter-second to the eldest, to nice places co'z they still had more money to spend.



I am happy to be an instrument of God's blessing. Hubby and I wants to treat his siblings specially the younger two to places they've never been and somewhat would like to visits. We are doing it one at a time since we don't have a car and bus and jeepney  fare nowadays are getting higher and higher. We wait for a time when our ministry van is available and we borrow it. Thank God it was available when we needed it for our Glorietta trip. :)

My Valentine's date

Hubby and I went to mall of Asia for our valentine date. We walked around and visits some shops. We also managed to take a picture of ourselves.
