Time to be Beautiful

Christmas is just few days to go and everyone is so busy. I just hope that this is also the time to give ourselves some time to be beautiful. I went out yesterday and I passed by my fave beauty salon and there I saw it was full of customers. It seems that many are trying to make themselves beautiful for Christmas.

I already gave myself a little pampering last November so I don't think that I need to go to the salon before Christmas. Beauticians these days are just so in demand that's why more people are studying and learning in beauty schools.  They are offering various courses in beauty in many campuses in the US. They have professional instructors and state of the art salon equipments.

Away for Christmas

It was my friend from college's birthday last Dec. 19th. Since we don't see each other in the last few years, I just texted her to give my birthday greetings. I was kinda worried if she got my message since she is not replying so I left a message on her Facebook wall my birthday greetings again.

She replied back there and she's sad that she's away from home for her birthday and Christmas since she is in Singapore for work. She's medical technologists and I'm pretty sure that the hospital where she is working sent her to attend yet another conference. It's just like she's studying once again at a medical school then later on when she's back she'll share all the laboratory knowledge that she acquired from that trip.

I'm sure even though she is away this Christmas, she'll make up for it when she comes back. I miss her and I hope we'll meet again next year.

Wednesday Happy Thoughts

1. Cool weather at early mornings and night.
2. Christmas gifts that I bought. Some still needs to be wrapped.
3. Friends who are so generous in sharing.
4. Done with my Valentine's kit and photobooks.
5. I was able to cook for lunch again after so many days.
6. my 8 yr-old niece helping with house chores particularly cutting of veggies and washing some of the dishes.
7. Oatmeal cookies with raisin for snack.
8. Gifts that I bought for myself. Lots of it! Actually I wanted a document imaging
and a new point and shoot camera but I thought that I'll just buy them next year as my spending his December is already neck deep.
9. Payments from my online companies that I'm working for.
10. Works still coming in eventhough it's holiday already.

Of Business

I have had my share of ups and downs when it comes to business and I have to say that owning one and making it succeed requires a lot of patience, sacrifice, dedication and perseverance. Investing in gold and other precious metals, sounds so very interesting but it can be intimidating as well but getting knowledge about how gold investment works and where to find it is rather easy. When it comes to gold and other precious metals, US Gold Bureau is known to be in authority about that. So if ever I have budget and I want to venture in that kind of business, I already have in mind where to buy gold coins and find more information about gold and more.

Shopping, Shopping and Shopping

Are you done with your shopping? Not me...

This year seems to be my over shopping year especially this November and December. I've been shopping online and at malls for myself and my loved ones and I'm enjoying every minute of my shopping time. Thank God, I have saved quite enough for this year to buy lots of items.

I went shopping again this afternoon and eventhough I have a list and a budget to follow, I've broken it once again. I went to a branded stall and oh my goodness, I was buying left and right for myself eventhough I have too much already.

Actually, I'm having a major wardrobe make-over. I cleaned my closet, gave some stuff while others are sold at our garage sale. My closet is so much ready for new cloths, underwear, bags, jeans and more.

I still wants to go to the mall this week and probably buy new sandals, etc. Plus I need to find a new lipstick and last Sunday, I saw maybelline on sale so I'll check it again. I don't think I need an instant wrinkle remover yet but a good cleanser is what I need. Yay, I can't wait to shop again before Christmas. I want to shop and drop. hehe..

Monday, December 13, 2010


Do you ever experienced running out of printer ink in the middle of your printing and you're in a hurry? Yay, I'm printing some important documents that I need to bring when I run out of ink. I thought I had some spare hp ink cartridges but too bad when I look at my storage cabinet, there's none. Nothing to do, I immediately run to the nearest office warehouse at SM to buy an ink.

Good thing, hp printers and cartridges are cheaper these days so I can buy immediately when needed. Next time, I'll buy 2-3 inks as spare.

Too Busy

Ahhhh.. Christmas is almost here and I'm slowly getting too busy with lots of things.

Shopping, wrapping gifts, attending some events and even working online. Actually I'm getting excited that sometimes I don't want to work anymore. I know you know what I'm feeling.

Looking for Owner Type Jeep

I was texting my uncle back and forth and even sending photos via facebook about the owner type jeep that they wanted to buy. I never thought that owner jeeps are already affordable. I guess they wanted to buy this kind as they'll use it in the province when they go visit the rice fields and the remote areas there. Just in case they'll buy it, they can get cheap auto insurance online for it.

My bro needs to test drive the jeep first and if it's ok then maybe my uncle will buy it.

Family Day

School days for this year is about to end in just few more days due to Christmas and there are already many activities going on in different schools. Just this morning, my brother and his family all went to the school of his son for a Family Day. Good thing it's not a formal affair and wearing long sleeves with ties are not compulsory.

They told me that there are games, raffles and other fun activities. In fact, their family won a food pack at one of the games. By next week, almost all schools will have their Christmas parties and after that it's the start of the long Christmas holidays for the students.

I Want a New Desktop

I've been using my Dell custom laptop for a year now here at home for my work and designing and eventhough it's working great I think I still need a desktop. My laptop is overheating at times and it has only 16" of screen and I want a bigger screen so it can be more comfortable when I'm designing digital kits.

I have an HP desktop at my shop but most of the times I'm staying at home so I need a desktop as well. I'm planning and saving to buy an HP or Dell desktop for I know it will be durable.I went to Greenhills about couple of weeks ago and I saw new models that I'm drooling about.

I guess maybe next year, I can have another desktop here at home so I can be more comfortable designing.

Road Safety

It’s always heartbreaking to hear and see in the news about accidents on the road. The road has become a scary place for people who are driving and also for bystanders. The other day it was so sad to hear that 6 people are killed when a big truck hits their small vehicle. It turned out that the driver of the truck is drunk and sleepy. How can he be so careless? People who are drunk and under the influence of alcohol or drugs should be off the road as they are putting the lives of others in danger.

In Texas, law on DWI (driving while intoxicated) offenders are serious as they can be jailed at up to 180 days in jail and fined at up to $2,000.00. I guess if you have been accused of DWI, getting Houston DWI lawyers to depend you is a good option. Just reminder to those that are driving, please don’t drink or get drunk and then drive as you’ll pose danger to yourself and to other people.

Free Movies for Senior Citizens

Senior citizens in our town are very lucky as they have the privilege to watch any movie at SM at our town for FREE. This is a project of our town mayor and to avail of this, all senior citizens just need to get a Movie Card ID (for free) at the municipal hall that they can present every time they want to watch a movie.

Every Tuesday (1st showing time) is the schedule of seniors citizens. My mom is one of those senior citizens that can watch movies every week. She goes there all by herself and funny thing is that, she gets to see some senior neighbors who are also going to watch the movies so they became her companion. Senior citizens with age spots and even those that are having hard time to walk are enjoying themselves with free movie.

I'm not sure if other towns are doing the same for their seniors. My mom and others are lucky ones. Just today, was able to watch another movie.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

So I found myself looking at the mirror this morning after taking a shower and I'm quite stunned to see the gray hairs coming out once again. I just had my hair colored before my birthday this month and it's already showing? Yay. I guess I'll be going to the salon soon once again but repeated coloring of my hair makes it more brittle and dry but I have no choice to do it as it's also so unpleasant to see my gray hairs.

I noticed that fine lines near my eye area are getting pronounced as well and there are times I'm thinking which wrinkle cream is best? I'm not sure I'm getting a cream soon but I know that there'll come a time that I'll have to. I'm not getting any younger so I'm already prepared that my skin will have to change already.

Our Online Twitter/Digi-Scrapper Christmas Exchange Gift

My digi-scrapper friends over at Twitter had another Christmas Exchange gift. We've been doing this for the last 3 years if my memory serves me right and every year it's always exciting. Since we have "member" in the US and other places, we picked names using the online bunutan at

Glo, initiated this exchange gift last Nov. 3 and I think most of us have already sent and received the gifts from our "mommies". I got mine already and I already know who is my mommy. I didn't wish for any safe diet pills to make me slim since I don't need it anyway. I'll just share the pics later.

Sports Buffs

My 2 older brothers are definitely sports fanatic most especially when it comes to basketball. They love to watch our local basketball (PBA) and they even have different teams that they are rooting. Funny thing is that when both of their teams are fighting for the championship, except a high energy, loud cheering and often chaotic time in the house while they watch it on TV.

If budget is not a problem, they purchase tickets and the watch games live in the court. Their experiences often are memorable because they always say that watching it live is giving them a different euphoria than watching it only on the tube.

Aside from PBA, NBA is not foreign to them. I often hear them talk about names of their favourite NBA players and sometimes saw them buy basketball magazines and such. Chiacago Bulls, LA LAkers are just some of the famous teams that they love to watch and follow. I’m sure we’re in the US, there’s no doubt that they also follow their teams on every play and would even buy tickets for the championship.

Yay! Black Friday Shopping!

Ohhh.. I can now feel the craziness about the Black Friday shopping in few more days in the US after their Thanksgiving. I have few friends in the US and they've been raving about how stores have their items for sale at low low prices.

Actually, I have lots of friends who are asking a friend of us to shop for them and then she'll just ship it here via the balikbayan box. As what I know they're planning to buy netbook, kitchen utensils, clothing and lots more. I'm tempted but I don't need those items, maybe I'll just wait for my friends "kalakals" (items for sale) after the Black Friday.

Oh how'd I wish I'm in the US also so I can experience the thrill during Black Friday shopping.

Deadly Cancer

Just hearing someone with cancer makes me sad. I have 2 aunts who already succumbed to death due to breast cancer and I have the fear of my every time I think about it.

Those that are working in an industry where they are exposed to asbestos can also endanger themselves getting sick. Unlike breast cancer that can be genetic, mesothelioma is different as it is due to inhalation of asbestos. Asbestos is used in manufacturing industry and have been banned many years ago because of the increase rates of people developing cancer of the mesothelium. Victims can actually file for damages and a Houston asbestos lawyer
can greatly help them.

Getting Skinny

Lately, a lot of my friends and relatives are noticing that I'm losing weight. They didn't like that I'm too thin and so do I.

Actually, I'm not dieting or trying to lose weight, it's just that my metabolism is faster than ever. If others are trying to shed pound and always ask "do diet pills work?", it's other way around for me as I'm trying to gain more weight to get my ideal weight of 94-96 lbs.

Right now I'm just 91-92 lbs.. Here's a recent photo of me taken just yesterday, my skinny body is not noticeable as I'm wearing a loose blouse.

iPhone TV!

Ok, so I’m still dreaming of owning an iPhone someday but not soon enough. I know it’s one great piece of a gadget where you can do almost anything on it but I reckon that I only want it but not need it. My friends are raving over it since they got one for themselves and with the looks of it; they are having a wonderful time using this gadget. Their kids are even borrowing it from them as kids also can play games through many applications.

To make their iPhones more exciting and more useful, my friends are purchasing apps at a very reasonable price. There are actually tons of apps that you can choose: from games, exercise, business, cooking and lots more. iPhone never ceases to amaze its users and now Iphone tv is making waves. iPhone users can now watch live streaming, online video, TV programs and pre-recorded videos in their iPhone units. Wow, amazing huh? I wonder what’s coming up next?

Oh dear, I hope I will not be left behind.

Disturbing News

These past few days, it’s quite bothering to hear from news about road accidents, crimes of passion, killings, modus operandi and more. It’s always heartbreaking to see victims lie helplessly or lifeless in the place of the crime. One particular story that was on the news recently was the massacre of a family wherein a young child was even raped and murdered. How can you not be emotional and be angry to those killers and perpetrators of this crime? The criminals are not in their right minds when they did that, I just hope the victims will be given justice and those criminals will be put to jail.

The relatives of the victims should seek justice and exert their efforts in asking for legal help. We have government lawyers that can assist them for free. Seeking justice can be daunting but if you have the right evidences, witnesses and good lawyers that can back you up, then I guess you’ll be given justice. If you’re in San Diego County and need someone to represent you in court, then Kerry Steigerwalt, a San Diego Criminal Defense Lawyer can help you with your legal matters.

Here Comes the Rain Again

Can you feel the cool breeze early in the mornings already? It's a sure sign that Christmas is just around the corner.

It's also been raining these fast few days so the weather is cooler than most of the days. Some of our neighbors are even collecting rain waters on their steel drum so that they can use it to clean their cars or garages. If the rain will continue until December then for sure we'll have a cold Christmas this year. It's much better than having a hot weather.

Too Lazy to Blog

Oh dear, I've been on blog hiatus since Saturday and it's only now that I was able to blog once again. There are many occasions that happened and I'm just still too lazy to post and even upload some of the photos. Arghhh.

Sometimes little vacation will make me a little bit sluggish and lazy but resting, shopping and doing some other works will definitely not make me bored. Work is a little bit ok these days but I'm sure the coming days will be hectic once again.

Coin Collector

My brother is once again organizing his collections in his small gallery. The big glass on one of the cabinets where he is showcasing his collections got broken while he was opening it few months ago. There are some old local coins displayed there and he doesn’t want some of his coins stolen once again by a visitor or buyer. Fortunately it’s not a rare gold coin on display or else he’ll be so furious.

Bebot/Twitter Christmas Exchange Gift

Me and my digi-scrapping and twitter friends are having another Christmas exchange gift this year. We've been doing this for 3-4 years already and I thought we're not going do to this year but fortunately Glo gave us a signal so almost all of us joined. We used to have our names picked out and where we can put our wish list. Our exchange gift is $35 + plus shipping this year.

I have to make my wish list so that my "mommy" will know what I want to receive this Christmas. I already have an idea on what I want and I'll be posting it here on my blog soon.

Christmas Shopping Soon

Christmas is just around the corner and I’m slowly starting to buy Christmas gifts for my friends and family. I want to be a little bit generous this year because I wanted to share my blessings that I’m getting from work. I sure hope they’ll like my surprise and be grateful for what they’ll receive. Also, if only I can give themgold coins
each that I can get from US Gold Bureau then I’m sure they’ll be thrilled.

November and December are my shopping months and I have to make another shopping list for I’ll be going to the malls this coming days. My niece is even giving me a hint on what to give her this Christmas.

Another Blog Contest at

Ohhh.. I want that Fossil watch!

I hope I can win at Faye's blog contest. She's been so generous to her reaaders and she's giving away new prizes this time. If you want to win any of the prize, join the contest as it ends on December 18, 2010. Check out for the mechanics

Turning Big 40

November is the birth month for my sister Joy and me. Mine is on the 16th while hers will be on the 25th. It’s quite special for her this year as she is turning big 40! and sis Joy is getting excited and anxious at the same time. I still don’t know her plans but for sure she’ll have a party at the house or maybe at a nice restaurant.

Her husband for sure is preparing a big surprise for her and she doesn’t want to be caught off guard. Will she receive another diamond ring, bracelet or maybe a gold bullion
this time? You see, her husband loves surprising her and I’ll not be shock anymore when her husband will give her a gold investment that he can buy at US Gold Bureau.

I just wish my sis all the love and happiness in the world. May she be blessed more.

Itching to Travel

My oldest sister is itching to travel once again and in fact, she called me one night, telling me that we're going to Singapore in December. I was kinda shocked to hear that from her and I told her that it's a bit rush for us to plan the vacation.

Overseas vacation needs a little bit of time planning plus we need to allocate a budget for that. So her plans was canceled and I just informed her that it's much better if we just leave next year. We still need to check on the schedules of the kids at school and hope that our plans will push through. Yey, now we need to save and be on the lookout for airline seat sales.

Yey, I Shopped!

Yes.. I decided to shop last weekend and it’s good thing because SM mall is having a Halloween sale. I was able to grab few jeans and tops for myself and I got 10-20% off on my purchases. I didn’t know that they’re having a sale so I was so lucky to have shopped that day.

I grabbed the chance to shop so I ended up shopping for more. Got few items for the kitchen and the bathroom but I wasn’t able to find futon covers that’s on sale. Now, I’m itching to shop once again and maybe next week I can go out once again. I’m going to give myself more reward for this year and hoping that I can find nice stuff as Christmas gifts as well.

Gold Investment

A cousin of mine is asking me to go with her at Ongpin in Manila to buy gold jewelries but I declined telling her that I’m not sure if it’s safe to buy jewelries there particularly of gold. However, the place is highly popular to be selling gold but since it’s in Manila and there’s a high risk of buying a fake. We might even be given a lower karat for we have no knowledge on gold’s karats. I just told her that it’s much safer to buy at my sister who is in Riyadh. Gold there are better and there’s so many stores selling good quality designs.

Meanwhile, US Gold Bureau has been known to be a good source of gold coins,gold bars
and other precious metals. I know that gold can be a good investment that’s why many have been investing in it. I hope there’ll come a time where I can also venture into this business.

Pending Photobook Projects

Lately, I’m trying to scrap but since I’m already designing kits for Artscow, I have little time to do so. I really wanted to finish all the photobook projects that are lining up but with the looks of it, it’ll take few more months before I can put more time on them. I have some pre-designed templates at artscow but likewise, I can’t even make a photobook.

Anyway, I have no luck with my PBs right now but I was able to order a calendar, mug, bucket bag, photo prints, cosmetic bag etc and I’m just waiting for their delivery. I’m just happy with all the customized items that Artscow is offering and I’m sure their customers are ordering them as holiday gifts as well. Personalized items have been in demand lately; from stationery, invitations, gift items and even personalized note cards can be ordered online and it has become convenient way for people.

Pizza Treat

We just had our lunch for today but I immediately asked my brother to buy a supreme pizza from Lotsa Pizza at Puregold. Actually, his kids were suppose to go at our net cafe to play games and stay there but when they learned that I'm buying a pizza, they quickly told that they already wants to stay at home hehehe.

They're just staying at the other door and I told them that if they are good and if they will sleep later, they'll have their favorite Hawaian Pizza.

Claims for Injuries

With prices of medicines, doctor’s consultation fees and hospital’s rate going up; it’s no joke being sick. How much burden it is when you already been treated but later found out that the treatment or the medicines that your doctor had given you are the ones that will even make you sicker? Ahhh.. that’s unforgivable.

Just like in the case of those people that have undergone hip replacement done by DePuy Orthopedics. It is found out that those patients that have undergone the surgery between 2005 and 2009 have experienced pain, swelling, dislocation of the implants and more. Due to this, Johnson and Johnson, owner of DePuy Orthopedics have recalled 93,000 units of their hip replacement system known to be defective. Now they are being sued and file with Depuy hip recall lawsuit by patients who had severe side effects due to that.

Birthday Preps

I’m turning a year older next month and as usual, I’m going to treat my family and relatives to lunch once again. It’s going to be another small get together party and I intend to share my blessings by preparing a sumptuous lunch. Of course, my older bro and my SIL will be the one in charge of cooking and I’ll be preparing my old time favourite buko fruit salad.

Right now, I’m already thinking of the dishes that they can cook and for sure barbequed pork and chicken are already in the list. Three years go, I hired a karaoke machine where we all can sing but this year, I’m skipping that idea since most of them are shy to sing. I know they’ll be excited once I’ll tell them that I’m going to throw a birthday lunch.

Her Hips Won’t Lie

If there’s one person who has a yo-yo kind of dieting then that would be my oldest sister. I just read on her blog that she succumbed once again to food temptations. I can’t blame her though because her 2 kids are on vacation with her in Riyadh and I guess they have been dining out as a family almost every weekend there.

Looks like sis is a loser in maintaining her desired weight and maybe phentermine without prescription can already help her. I already saw her trim down last couple of months but now she’s back sliding once again. Now she vows to exercise and diet anew because her hips won’t lie anymore but I’m pretty sure that this will be another broken promise hehe.

Too Many Preservatives

Hooray, I’m already 1 year softdrinks free!!! (except for one instance at one of our gathering in July where I drunk half cup of Coke because I failed to look for water). I’m just too happy about it and now I’m not even excited to drink when I see any softdrinks.

Aside from not drinking softdrinks anymore, I’m really trying not to eat canned and processed foods for they only contain lots of preservatives. I been eating them almost all my life and I guess it’s now the time to stop it for I’m also having some problems with my digestion right now. Looks like colon cleansing can also help my bowel movement and I think it’s also a good way to detoxify.

As for eating salty junk foods, I try to minimize them but when my period is coming, I’m always craving for some salty foods so eliminating them is something that I don’t think I can do now.

Busy as a Bee

It’s been a busy as in busy week for me. Works are pouring in and I have to take advantage of that. It’s my very first time in my whole blogging career that I’ve stayed at home for one whole week just to finish all my works. Usually, I go to my net cafe everyday but since work became too loaded I opted to just go there 2x-3x (the most) a week. Since my sister-in-law only works in the office 2x a week, she agreed to take care of the shop. So everytime she goes to her work ever Tues. and Thurs., as much as possible I need to go there.

Unfortunately, I can’t work really well when I’m at my shop since it’s noisy and have too many distractions that’s why I like working here at home even I stayed up very late. The dark under eye circles on my face are visible already and that’s a sign that I’ve been working real hard.

I’m guessing that until next week, I’m pretty much overloaded with but I need to go out, catch some sunlight and run some other errands. With all these I’m very thankful for having such work.

Ewww.... Pests

Ewwww. I could not imagine sleeping with bed bugs on my mattress. These little pests are minute and annoying. Changing sheets from time to time is necessary and cleaning the room with a disinfectant can also help but when these bugs already spread immensely, all you need to do is call a pest control experts. I remember our old house was infested with termites; the wooden walls became hollow for they have eating all along. We tried to clean or removed them by ourselves but of boy they are just too many so we have no resort but to call an pest control company to do the job for us.

We learned that frequent checking of the house for possible infestation is called for and practical thing to do for we can prevent further damage to our properties. If pests have been uncontrollable, Bulls-Eye Pest & Termite Control, a Houston pest control
company can help in eradicating them. They have well trained staff that can do the job geared with innovative equipments that can do all the work.

If you’re house is infested with termites, rats, cockroaches and other pests, it’s always best to control them right away to stop them from harming not just your homes but your health as well.

25 Years of Blissful Marriage

My older sister and her husband are going to celebrate their 25th (silver) wedding anniversary come May of next year. I have to say that these days, it’s sad to see couples splitting most particularly in Hollywood. Celebrities’ lives are magnified and almost everything that they do will be noticed by anyone and such event in their lives can’t be hidden.

I’m not sure what are the plans of my sister and BIL on their wedding day and I just heard from sister they like to renew their vows in church. Not quite sure if it’s still their plan but if you’re going to ask me it’s not very practical thing to do nowadays as it will require big expenses once again. I guess they can still celebrate this special occasion with just close relatives and for sure they’ll also receive special blessings and lots of sentimental anniversary gifts from all of us.

I have to check out my sister and ask her about it but if I’m not wrong an Asian trip is bound to happen.

A Little Over 90

Oh my goodness, I just weighed myself today and I'm close to 90 lbs. already. I'm not happy with that weight since I'm not trying to lose weight and I'm not even taking apidexin in the first place. You see I'm frequently been bothered with my dyspepsia or indigestion and the result is that I don't eat too much because I feel bloated and already feel full. I just really need to address this problem of mine.

I'm wishing that my normal weight of 95-96 lbs. will be back again and if that happens I'll be very thankful. You see, trying to gain weight and losing weight are both hard as it seems. Yey, I'm feeling hungry right now and just asked our helper to buy pizza at the nearest store right now.

Abundant Blessings

I woke up today with a backache and feeling a bit gloomy but the pain was unnoticeable already when I opened my e-mail and work dashboards. I got more blessings today and I’m so thankful everything I’m receiving. All the blessings are coming right in time because holidays and other occasions are coming up.

I also need to save a little bit for myself and probably invest not just on gadgets but I’m also thinking of maybe putting up a new business that I know will be profitable aside from the current one that I have. I also might consider looking into those gold coins
and I know that United States Gold Bureau is a great source of gold and other precious metals. I’ve been reading on some sites and blogs how practical it is as an investment and I have to check it for myself.

Right now, I’m embracing all the wonderful blessings that I’m receiving and will be receiving with open arms. Thank God for all of these.

Excited to Shop

Yearly, I always treat myself for a shopping spree for it's my birthday next month. I was suppose to go out today at the mall but since the weather is not that good I opted just to stay at home and finish my digi designing and online works. I also learned that there's a huge traffic in EDSA area as some malls are having sale. I didn't realize that it was 15th today (payday) and many will be going to the malls to shop. Fortunately I didn't go out.

I'm just too excited to shop now and I guess many shoppers also awaits the Cyber Monday shopping, which is the Monday after Black Friday shopping in the US for it will fall on November 29. This is also the perfect time to shop for Christmas gifts. Anyway, I need to schedule my shopping once again next week and as much as possible I don't want to go out on a weekend to avoid traffic and lots of shopper.

30-min. Exercise

Looks like that I'm having a sedentary lifestyle lately and I'm not happy about it. There are times that I sit in front of my computer either blogging or whipping up a digi-kit designs for 10-12 hours. Not a good routine to do all the time and that resulted with a backache, strained eyes and worst is my varicose veins inflamed :(.

Not wanting to make it worst, I'm thinking of waking up early in the morning put on my running shorts and top, bring my dog Sophie and walk or run around the village. I wanted to start it today but funny thing is that I woke up already late so I just end up opening Youtube and watching exercise online. I did it for 30 mins. and it was

I hope I can do this everyday before I do my work.

Chillax Weekend

Ahhhh .... this weekend is one of the most relaxing that I have unlike my previous weekends where I need to work so hard just to finish the online jobs that I have. I was out at the mall yesterday morning till early afternoon to shop a little bit for myself and to buy gifts for my godchildren twins birthday today. I only did one online opp before I went to sleep last night but the rest of the day was spent watching TV, surfing the net, designing digi kit and just relaxing.

Today, we'll be attending a 1st birthday party and if it's not just few blocks away from our house and if it's not my grandchildren for sure I'll just opt to stay in the house sleeping or relaxing.

Of Gold and Iqama Cards

I recently saw some photos of my sis and BIL in Riyadh with their 2 kids who went there to renew their Iqama cards. They need to do this so that they can fly back and forth in Saudi. It seems that they're all enjoying their bonding times together as a family sans Karlo who was left here studying. I have seen photos of them dining out most of the times and my niece and nephew are taking the advantage of it while they are there.

I heard that that some of the stores are having some sales there and there's no doubt that Kukay will ask her mom for a shopping spree once again. Wish I can also see all the gold stores that my sister use to to tell me for there are myriad of gold jewelries on display to choose from. With all the different styles to choose from, I know I'll have a hard time picking what I want. Since Riyadh is known as gold haven, I bet they are also stores that sells gold bullion
or gold coins for investors or collectors to purchase. If there's none, online is one of the best source to find some.

Anyway, with the delay of the renewal of their Iqama cards, Kukay and Kev will stay in Riyadh for couple of months.

Rest Day Sunday

I'm always looking forward every Sunday for it is the day where I can really rest almost the whole day. I can wake up late, can go to church and have lunch at brother's place. It is also the time where I can watch TV in the afternoon and had my afternoon nap without worrying about work. Snack time in the afternoon is usually much awaited by my nephew and niece wherein I can treat them with a pizza, Jollibee or Mcdo but they always love pizza.

The rest of the day will be spent watching TV, late dinner, graphic designing, browsing the internet or do some light work. I had a great sleep last Sunday and yesterday and I guess my body is looking for those much needed rest after working late nights about couple of weeks ago. I don't even need any sleep aid to send me in dream land. Just in case you need one, click here for sleeping pills if you like. I hope I can have a sound sleep again tonight.

Ahhhh.. I can't wait for Sunday again.

Gearing Up to Shop

It's been 2 months already since the last time I was able to shop for myself. I'm actually itching to go out and shop once again. I know there'll be lots of sale this month in preparation for the Halloween so the more I know it the more I want to give myself a little treat.

I really wanted to buy another branded leather bag as a birthday gift to myself but my friend who is selling stuff online, don't have bags that I like right now. I just end up buying an Armani watch (yes another watch! hehe) and I can't wait for it to arrive. I hope it'll arrive by November just in time for my birthday. I'm already making a list on what I wanted to buy and I have to schedule my shopping day.

Actually I wanted to shop on a weekday so there is less traffic and less people shopping. I also need to check on the price of the rack mount lcd at the nearby electronic store so I can compare the price that I saw online. Yay.. I can't wait to shop.

Discovered Treasure

As you all know my oldest brother has a collection old stuff and that includes, LP records, celebrity photos, vintage bottles, stamps, old coins, comic books and lots more. Their living room was even converted into a small gallery where he can display all his art works and collection. A good compliment about his stuff always sends him to cloud nine and with all the things that he has, he sometimes sells them to collectors.

About few years back when grandmother died, my bother helped in cleaning the stuff that she left and would you believe that they’ve discovered many local coins in her treasure chest that dates back in the1920’s-1930’s. With the memories of my grandma attached to those coins, my brother vowed not to sell them but instead add them to his collections. It would be perfect if bro also has some gold coins,for we heard that is one of the best investment nowadays.

I was on my way to my shop the other day when I saw bunch of students wearing white uniforms that I assumed where nursing students. Their sight suddenly brings me back to the days when I was at their age wearing almost the same uniform and trying very hard not to put any stain on my immaculate clean attire.

The same situation happened when we rushed mom to the hospital few weeks ago when she got dizzy and had hypertension. The smell of the hospital and the busy medical practitioners with their lab uniforms at the ER were enough to bring all my Med. Tech. years back in my mind. They all look neat and as always exude professionalism. While going to the pharmacy, the scrubs worn by medical staffs caught my attention and I could not believe my eyes that scrubs are getting colorful and stylish these days.

I guess the medical uniform upgrades were welcome by many medical staff and now that online shopping is the “in” thing these days, it’s no surprising anymore that they can purchase scrub uniforms like cherokee and lab coats with ease. I’m not sure if I can go back to my old profession but just seeing medical staff who are enjoying their career is enough for me.

My mom called our helper today to do some minor repairs in the house. He's been our helper for 2 decades and we already trust him to do some works around the house even though we are away. Today, my mom asked him to clean all the window and door screen plus the leaking faucet in the bathroom. Actually, he is our handyman that can do different kinds of work.

If we're going to change the sink in the bathroom, I'll definitely tell my mom to choose one of those Kohler kitchen sinks which I reckon are more durable and stylish. Now that the minor problems in the house are being fixed slowly, mom is not worrying anymore.

Out of the Hospital

Thank God, mom is out of the hospital!

After 2 1/2 days of staying in the hospital bed, my mom is here in the house already so she can rest. Her hypertension was controlled with the new prescribed medicines by her doctor and I'm hoping this will not happen again. It was just sad and heartbreaking to see my mother too weak and complaining that she is dizzy.

Here she is now, eating, walking and even trying to do some things in the house. She's recovering fast but she doesn't want to just lie down and do nothing.

Chit-Chat Later

My dear best friend is coming later in the house for our much-needed “chikahan” (girl talk) over a lot of things. Not just because she wanted us to talk but she’s coming over to visit my mom who came from the hospital since Monday.

She’s my very best friend since we’re in highschool and knowing how we talk, few hours are not enough for us to update each other. I can read some of the things about her but still talking personally is much better so from time to time if we have time we visit one another.

I can’t wait the time she’ll be here and there’s no doubt that we’ll exchange thoughts about our online works, family issues and even business ventures. You see, it’s also good to have other income that is coming in the household and we’ve been hearing that there are some people who got successful when they buy gold coins
and other precious metals from US Gold Bureau. That is something we need to find out by perusing their website.

I also have ask her if she’s still planning on putting up a small store in front of their house even if she’s already earning online. Ahh.. I can’t wait for her to come.

Rushed Mom at the Hospital

We took mom at the hospital last night after complaining of dizziness after having dinner. I took her blood pressure and it was 160/90 and it was not a good sign. I gave her the medicines that she's been taking as a maintenance from after 30 mins. it has no sign of going down. She is quite having difficulty so we decided to take her to the hospital right away at around 9pm.
The ER of the nearest hospital was fully packed that night but was taken care of right away. The doctor gave her a medicine 2x under her tongue but still he BP is high so we all decided that she needs to be confined already so that they can check her thoroughly.

She's still in the hospital right now and we are waiting for the xray and other laboratory results. I’m hoping that her doctor will visit her tonight so he can update us with my mom’s health status. I’m praying and wishing that nothing serious will come out of the results.

With emergencies like this, having a health insurance like NC health insurance is good to have. Since my mom is already 77, she has no more health card but at least she can get a 20% discount because she’s a senior citizen.

2 Little Chatterbox

These are my 2 little nieces that are both chatterbox. This was during our lunch at Max's Restaurant in Megamall last December when sis Joy and her family came home for vacation. Reign and Bianca get along well together eventhough at times Reign is struggling to speak in English. Eventhough at times language is difficult but being kids, they enjoy each other through playing, teasing and just having fun.

I missed Bianca already and her big bro Braiden and for sure after 2 years or so they'll be back to have another vacation here. They loved their stay here last holidays and for sure Bianca and Reign will have a grand time playing together in the future. I hope they can be bestfriends as well eventhough they are far a part.

I'm just imagining the time that they'll be teens already. For sure they'll be giggling, talking about boys, acne laser treatment, other beauty treatments/problems and life in general. I wish them to grow up kind, respectful and happy.

Satisying my Cake Cravings

After getting sick for a whole week last August, my appetite is surely back. While others are thinking of drinking diet pills to lose weight, here I am trying to gain some more weight. There are many instances where I craved for some foods and if I've got the money, I asked my brother to buy me food. Just like yesterday, I'm craving for a cake but I don't want to buy red ribbon or goldilocks this time because I'm already used to the same taste.

My brother suggested to just order a cake from a local baker that we have here if I want and I agreed. They ordered a small rectangle shaped 9" x 13" chocolate cake with caramel filling inside. The baker asked what is the occasion and bro just told to just put "have a great day" on it hehe.

SIL got the cake and delivered it to me here at the house right after lunch and here I am eating some of them for snack and I'm sure we'll eat this for a day or two.

Improving Appetite

I guess you have read my post about my 11-yr old nephew who is so fragile. He is still thin and might need human growth hormone to make him a bit taller for his age but I'm quite happy to say that he's improving lately. I guess the demands of being highschool already and seeing his classmates how they eat inspired him to eat more. In fact, I saw how his appetite changed when we ordered for pizza last weekend. He ate 3 slices of pizzas and he's even putting too much on his mouth as if there's someone that will get it from him.

We told him to slow down and eat properly because he can eat all he can. It's the 1st time I have seen him devour a pizza with so much gusto. I hope he'll get fat and have more muscles because we want to see him healthy. Last 2008 he was sick with dengue and got 50/50 chance of survival and that made him more thin and sickly. Anyway, with God's help he'll be more mature and healthier.

Great Bodies at Cosmo Bachelor Bash 2010

I'm a little too late to know that Cosmo Bachelor Bash 2010 organized by Cosmopolitan Philippines magazine was already held last September 9, 2010 at Hall D of the World Trade Center in Pasay . I only learned about this when I saw some clips on TV and at You Tube last night. I'm not really aware of it anyway.

There are 69 hot bachelors and ten celebrity centerfolds with great bodies that took part in the said event. The Top 10 Centerfolds are Sam Milby, Fabio Ide, Christian Bautista, Marco Manalac, Matteo Guidicelli, Tom Rodriguez, Bryann Foronda, , Carl Guevara, and Rocco Nacino, and Joross Gamboa.
There are lots of screaming fans who want to see their bodies and for sure these celebrities have exerted lots of effort in exercising and how to increase muscle mass in order to achieve the bodies that they have for the party.

Too Many Distractions

Oh dear, I still have pending online works but I can't seem to work on them properly because of Facebook, digi-scrapping sites and other sites. When I opened my FB account, I can't help but to browse all the photos and watch the videos that my friends are sharing. From time to time, I'm also commenting on some of my friend's wall and that is sometimes eating my time.

Anyway, I'm closing them now before I lose all my time for work. I also need to continue my digital kit designing in a while because I'm almost half way done.

Everyone Loves Toy Story 3- 3D

My sister and BIL was here last June for a vacation from Saudi Arabia and it's always fun when you have balikbayan relatives because from time to time they can treat everyone. Just like one weekend, we all watched Toy Story 3 3D movie at SM malls. Before we went inside, my nieces and nephews took turns posing at the big display of Story outside the theater and Reign was so excited to pose with Barbie.

Toy Story was worth watching and even us adults enjoyed it. Disney-Pixar's animation and effectsare just awesome.

Accutane Lawsuit

It's always been my dream to have flawless skin and I guess I'm not those fortunate ones. The white and black heads on my face are somewhat unsightly to see and I never consider it having removed by professional derma doctor. I'm also battling with a zit or two at times and I know how embarrassing it is to have an acne anywhere in the face. I tend to think that people are always looking at my zit and think it's gross.Oh well, at least I don't have those big pussy acne.

For people who suffers severe acne, they have no choice but to see a doctor to have it check. Some doctors may prescribe Accutane, which is form of vitamin A that can alleviate severe acne symptoms but actually it has side effects. Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are just some of the severe ailments that anyone can get from using Accutane and due to this there's a Accutane Lawsuit
that you can file if you have suffered from these severe side effects.

So Fragile

Every time I see my 11-yr. old nephew, I can't help but to feel a bit sorry and think why he is thin and fragile for his age. He is in first year highschool already and he's often mistaken to be a grade 3 or 5 student because of his physique. It was something that he dislikes hearing most of the times and I can't blame him being sad at times because of this.

Anyway, there are times that I told her mom to let him go to the store for errands because he'll not learn to be on his own. His parents, particularly his mom, always thinks that he'll be injured or something bad will happen to him when he'll go to school alone or will run for a quick errand. I have to say that it's a bad thinking and I guess that's also the reason why he has not matured up to this day.

Oh least last summer vacation he played basketball in the neighborhood with a friend. I wish he'd play more sports, be more active and who knows my sister overseas might give him rubber shoes when she'll send another balikbayan box. I also wish there'll come a time when he'll eat more and be more matured.

No More Discount on Whole Cakes at Red Ribbon

I was craving for a Red Ribbon cake last Sunday and to appease my craving, we stopped by Red Ribbon bakeshop near our house and I told my sis-in-law and mom to buy junior size my fave Black Forest cake. We always buy at Red Ribbon and my mom uses her senior citizens card to get a discount.

My mom would normally get Php60 pesos discount for the whole cake when she uses her card.
To our surprise, last Sunday, my mom was not given any discount anymore for the cake. The staff said that BIR told them not to give anymore discount for the whole cake but only give discount on cake slices. Hmmm.. reasonable enough.. Oh well at least mom will still get a discount if she'll eat there.

Worth Keeping

I dropped by my sister’s blog and facebook acct. today and read that she accompanied her friend at the jewelry store to shop for gold rings for their upcoming wedding. I was in awe to see the massive gold jewelries that are displayed at the store. There are tons of necklaces, earrings, bracelets on display and with that kind of collection it’ll be hard to choose which one you’ll like.

What I love about Saudi gold is that they don’t fade in time unlike other gold that’s why if I have the money, I sometimes ask my sister to buy me. Lucky for me though because there are times, she’s just generously giving me a pair of earrings or bracelet. Gold is something definitely worth keeping, gold jewelries and even gold coins
have great value in the market and those who wanted to invest in gold in form of coins or bullion will find US Gold Bureau a good source of it.

I wish I can buy new gold bracelet or a pair of earrings for my birthday this year.

Off to the Doctor

After many months of being rushed to the hospital because of hypertension, my mom is always going to her doctor regularly (once a month), for her check up. She's getting scared that it might happen again so even if she's not fond of going to see her doc, she has no choice but to go because it's also for her own good.

Sometimes, I see her about to complain about the medicines that she's drinking every night and day but I told her it's better to take medicines instead of being confined in the hospital. At her age of 78,I guess there's no more insurance company that will give her any health insurance because they know they are prone to ailments already. 

Oh well as long as she'll be going to the doc, drink her medicines and live a healthy lifestyle, then I guess she's doing good.

Meet Up with Caryl and Jacq

Haha, this was a very late post already, been so lazy downloading and watermarking photos lately that's why. Anyway, Bebots Caryl and Jacq came all the way from Hongkong and Singapore for a vacation in the country last July. We had lunch at CYMA, a Greek inspired resto in Greenbelt in Makati and had coffee afterwards at Coffee Bean shop where we had non-stop chika that day.

Here are some of pictures at the meet up.

My Bathroom Woes

I have always been disappointed with our bathroom for it was a bit small for my bathroom needs. It would be perfect to have a bigger one but since the space in the house is not big anyway, so my dad who actually collaborated with the architect had no choice but to make it just fit.

I always wish to have a spacious bathroom where I can put different bathroom furniture. It’s pretty exciting to see lots of new contemporary styles and designs of sinks and shower enclosures and more over at I believe that even a compact space can have a solution, for there are wall cabinets that can be perfect for storage in the bathroom. In the meantime, I have to deal with the bathroom that I have and just maximize the space properly.

I guess it’s not yet too late for me to dream of a good spacious place where I can clean and groom myself. Maybe one day when I got some budget for renovation, I’ll definitely consider having our bathroom done first since it’s the most used room in the house. I already know where to get supplies when needed and I know more styles will be coming for home owners to choose. I also have to pay close attention the cabinets and the lighting inside the bathroom for they are essential as well.

My Love for Watches

I love watches and I never fail to always pass by any watch store when I go out malling just to take a peep at the new styles of watches available or if there’s any sale going on. I have to say that my love for watches only started when my relatives from the US started to give me watches as gifts. I collected all of them and I excitedly wear them alternately over time.

Watches are good accessories and there are styles and designs that will suit your attire or look. These days, I was fascinated with all those big watches with leather straps that were usually worn only be men before. I’m also planning to buy another watch this year as a birthday gift for myself and I hope my online friend will have new watches for sale so I can pick one.

I also happen to find some IWC Watches
at Lussori. I love the pick color and the style but oh my gosh, my eyes lit up when I saw the hefty price. It was branded and luxury watch that costs thousands of dollars, probably if I got rich I can purchase one of those. Lussori sells luxury, elegant and some of the world’s rarest and most unique timepieces that any watch lover would love to have.

Friday Thoughts

I can't believe it's Friday already. Been too busy working here at home not minding that days passed by so easily. It's my brother's birthday today and there's no major celebration but we prepared food for snack time.

I was over at Facebook earlier trying to unwind a bit when I saw a video of starving kids that my SIL shared and I was crying so hard and wished that poverty and hunger is never in existence. My hard breaks argghh.

Anyway, I hope I can finish lots of tasks for today so I can have extra time to digi-scrap or whip up a digi-design later on.

Bro's Birthday

It's my older brother Joji's birthday today and he turned 45 this year. Yay, he is already getting old. I made some buko fruit salad last night with my sister in law and SIL will cook spaghetti for merienda today. I will not be able to be there during snack time because I'm here at the house finishing some works. I just told them to save some spaghetti for me so that I can eat it for dinner tonight.

Happy birthday bro!

Advance your Military Career

If you have a friend or a relative who is in the military and serving the nation, I know you are so proud of them for have courage to serve the country and leave their families most of the times. It’s already a good and admirable action that they have carried out and they should be given due respect and benefits.

Military people have the privilege to study eventhough they are in still in service. With online schools ready to accept them, military people can just choose which of the many online military degrees
that they want to pursue. It can further enhance their military career and will help them once they are out of service.

Feelin' So Much Better

I really thought that I was already well after I posted about it last Wednesday. I was ok that day but fell ill again the next day with colds. But now, I'm feeling much better and I'm so happy that I've recuperated .

Actually, eating lots of vegetables and my frequent resting and sleeping really helped a lot in my recovery. I just hope that my health will continue to get better because it's really hard to get sick.

Bro.'s Collections

My oldest brother is into collecting old LP records, old vintage bottles, magazines, photos, old s, stamps, and whole lots more. He has this small gallery in their house where he showcases his small but well-loved collections. At some point, there are people who are coming to his house to buy and even sell whatever old items that they have.

Funny this is that we sometimes tell my brother that he is like a junk shop already because of the enormous collection of old items that he has. I know he can sell them too at a good price in the future.

New Curtains and Bedding

My bedroom is my haven and after the hard days work, it's always the place where I love to rest and even watch TV. I recently had put fresh new curtains that I ordered from a friend who is sewing different curtains and bedding. I just picked a neutral beige color for my room so that my room will look fresh and neat.

I also wanted to have another set of bedding and I heard that matouk linens are one of the best. I'm going to drop by the home section at the nearby mall next weekend and I'll look for some bedding. Good thing is that there's a sale ongoing right now.

Chat with Sis at YM

It's been a while since my sister Joy and I talked over at YM and it was a pure delight that we have talked the other morning. We have discussed quite a lot of things since we have not spoken for a while because we are both too busy. She's actually busy with their house being constructed in Sydney and it was actually almost half way done and I saw some photos in her facebook account about the developments of their house.

It look real big and I know they are really excited to transfer there if God permits by December. I also wished of coming there in the coming years so I can help her with the cleaning and decorations in the house. I'm so glad that their dream house will finally come to reality soon.

Something to Consider

I've been reading some good articles lately about business ventures and if my sister is around I know she'll once again look into these. She's actually a business woman in her own right and she loves entering into any kind business when she sees it practical to enter into. I learned that buying gold coins and is one way of preserving our wealth and purchasing power and sis for sure will consider this. I guess if anyone really wanted to invest in these precious metals, just like any other business, we should carefully learn the ins and outs of this industry so we'll be more successful in this field.

Thank God, I'm Well Now

I'm back.. Just got sick last Sunday afternoon till Monday night with flu.

It was so hard getting sick and I hate it most especially I have high fever. I took care of myself by drinking medicines and eating. I hope I will not get sick once again.:( Now. I'm back and ready to work once again.

A Little Blog Make-Over

Ok so I decided to tweak the color theme and the header of my blog today and I came up with this simple design. I just feel like having it simple and neat, though not much difference from my previous header.

Anyway, I've been designing graphics and digital elements these past few days and I hope to get some compensation for that. I also made another 8 x8 20page photobook in jst 2 days and I already had it printed over at artscow. Yey!

No More Orders

It's been how many months already since I got an order to make invitations from my local customers here in my shop. My desktop publishing is not that lucrative anymore ever since some of the photo developing shops offered them as well. I guess some customers already have their own pc to do it on their own.

Aside from that, they can already order birthday, wedding, and baptismal invitations etc. online at lower cost and faster shipping. Oh well, that's how business is, sometimes you'll have lots of order then there's a decline too.

My Health is my Wealth

If there is one thing that I’m carefully monitoring these days is my health. Just like what I’ve written on my recent post, I’m in pursuit for healthier me and I think I’m slowing doing good. Aside from removing softdrinks from my diet, canned goods and processed foods are some foods that I’m getting rid as well because I know it only contains lots of salt and preservatives that are very harmful to our bodies.

Although I can’t remove eating pork and other lean meats on my diet, I just have to make sure that I’ll always eat vegetables along with it or if not will have a veggie meal the next day or so. I also have some problems with my digestion so I guess a detoxification
method can probably help me in a way.

Sites and blogs that promote health and nutrition appeals to me lately and honestly I’ve been to sites where I can get healthy recipes and read more about improving quality of life through yoga, exercise and just being happy and contented. I guess with my feverish desire to be healthy, I can conquer my goal in no time and I just have to be determined and focus in doing that.

Life's Sweet Fudge

Just in case you didn't know I have a not so new blog and it's Life's Sweet Fudge. Don't ask me how many blogs that I have already because your hand fingers are not enough. I decided to come up with a blog where I can talk about food, (food recipes etc), nutrition, health, fitness, home, home ideas and other life's sweet fudge.

Hope you can take a peek and even share some of your thoughts. See you there.

Broken Van Sucks

Mom and bro are kinda bothered these days as our van is not on its top performance. Mom bought it just last Oct. 2009 and we really didn’t have a clue that this almost new van will give us some headaches after few months. Though there are still plastic covers on the walls when we got the van, I guess my bro and the technician failed to check the engine carefully before buying the van.

Oh well, that’s the consequence of buying a second hand or used vehicle, you’ll never know the real condition of it after few months that you’re using it. My brother will need to bring it to the auto repair that can check the engine’s status. These days, our van sometimes will just stop in the middle of our trip and the aircon is not working as well.

Actually, mom is already convinced that we really need to replace the vehicle. It’s nice to have a Toyota Camry just like what my sis have but with the size of our family, I reckon another van is just right for us. I’m pretty sure that mom will ask every one of us to give some share so that we can buy another vehicle. Yay!. I hope this time the van that we’ll get will stay for a long time and bro don't need to check the breaks more often just like our Toyota Tamaraw that’s been serving us since 2002.
