Heavy Rain

I have started doing my assignment for my History class last Saturday and I am hoping that I can finish the essay after I get out from work. I have to submit a top notch essay for my Tuesday class and I am glad that my husband is willing to edit my work.

Actually, it is raining outside which is good for the trees and the flowers but not safe for drivers on the road. I have been living in Texas close to four years now and I have witnessed a lot of accidents on the road during rainy days. Well, hubby is not home yet because he went to visit his Dad earlier this evening and I sent him a message telling him to be very careful when heading back home because of the rain.


By the way, my husband was telling me about his Uncle who collects different clocks like the howard miller grandfather clocks; he had been a clock collector for many years. I have met him a few times during special family gathering.

Plastic Surgery

I was humbled by the video that we watch in the church today. The video was a documentary of a family man who loses his wife and daughter by automobile accident and eventually give his forgiveness to the guy who did the crime. The accident involves a drunken teenager who hit their car and causes the death of the two passengers.

I was move by the documentary because the husband never question God why it happened. Instead of complaining to the Lord he prayed more; to strengthen him and his other surviving kids to move on with their lives. After one year, he decided to meet up with the teenager who killed his wife and daughter. The husband forgave the teenager and even told the young man to move on with his life.

I then realize that forgiveness is such an important factor for us. It helps us heal from heartaches, sorrow and pain. Remember "to err is human; to forgive is divine".

By the way, a good friend of mine who now lives in Houston is planning to visit the Houston Plastic Surgery sometime next week.

Golden Anniversary


I have a talk with my in-laws today after I got out from work and they told me that they are trying to beautify my husband's grandparent's house in preparation for their upcoming golden wedding anniversary. Everyone is already excited to witness my husband's grandparents renewing their wedding vows for the 50th time. My husband's grandparents are blessed with six children, twenty-five grandchildren, twelve great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.

Anyways, my father-in-law suggested putting plenty of Decorative Planters around the front porch of the house as well as Indoor Planters for every room in the house. I actually love the idea of putting different kind of Planter around the house because it will add beauty and grace to the house.

After I talk with my in-laws I then started searching the web and found a website that specializes in Planters and Pots called the E Planters. The website is like heaven to me because of its wide selection of Planters such as Window Box Planters, High End Planters, Outdoor Planters and more.

Well, I have included a picture of one of my favorites Window Box Planter for you to see. Likewise, I am excited to call my in-laws tomorrow to inform them about the E Planters website.

Pork Afritada


I am very happy that I am able to cook for dinner ones again. Well, I got out early from work so I decided to plan a menu and I come up with one of the famous Philippines dish  called  Pork Afritada or Stewed Pork Meat in Tomato Sauce.

I am very satisfied with the result because hubby like it a lot and I feel good knowing that I made my man happy. Well, I have included the picture above and I hope you will like it also. Check my other website called Kusina Inato for a complete recipe.

Saddened

Well, everyone in my extended family in the Philippines were sad to find out that my first cousin on my mother's side did not passed the July 2010 nursing exam. I was hoping that she will make it because I know how hard she had studied before the exam. I know my Uncle and my Aunt are both disappointed with the result but I am praying that they will still try their best to support and be there for my cousin during this difficult time.

I am trying to reach my cousin through long distance call and email; so far I did not received any reply from her and she has not answered any of my phone calls yet. I pray that the Lord will bless her with strength, courage and wisdom to surpass this trial and hopefully she will be able to pick up herself again and move forward to achieve her goal to become a full pledge registered nurse in the future.

Anyways, I can't believe that we will be entering the month of September already this Wednesday. My friends are already talking about what costumes to wear for the upcoming event. Well, I plan to check Dr. Seuss Costumes sometime this week.

Web Guide

I am extremely exhausted from attending my two classes today because I sleep late last night since my brother-in-law was here in town. I am even contemplating on calling my place of work to inform them that I will not be able to work tonight but on the other hand, I might as well just work so I will have something to look forward on my next pay day.

My professor in History was talking earlier about Christopher Columbus and were asking questions if who were the first settlers in the United States of America. I found these topics very interesting for me because I know that I am learning something new regarding the History of America in 1865. Actually, history fascinates me and this one of the main reason why my husband and I clicked the first time we have chatted online. He loves history since he is a historian by profession and I like to learn different history around the world.

By the way, I have the chance to check the webhosting guide that my friend shared with me on the net today. Today is still extremely hot and I can't wait for fall and winter to start.

Moving to the United States of America to be with the man that I dearly love is probably the hardest decision I had ever made in my entire life. I remember that once my visa was approved it brought me a lot of joy but it also brought me a lot of mixed feelings. Moving means leaving my family and friends that I truly love and adore. I have five adorable childhood friends that I wanted to see and bond again when the perfect time will come in the near future.

UFC 100 Greatest Fight

My husband and my brother-in-law are watching the 100 greatest fights in the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Champion) while I am chatting with my family back in the Philippines. I have already started reading some chapters of my books for my class tomorrow and I think it is interesting.

Well, I am schedule to work tomorrow night at my place of work. Frankly speaking, I find my first class professor a very strict teacher to deal with. One student was late on our first meeting of class and I can't believe that the professor totally embarrassed the guy in front of 300 students. Therefore, I have to make sure not to be late with that class because I don't know what to do if I run to that same situation my new classmate experience last Tuesday with our History professor.

Watching The Colbert Report

The Colbert Report has quickly become one of my favorite parts of the weekdays. He combines satire with real news to inform viewers of the news, but also to make them laugh. It has become one of the most viewed news programs as he continually delivers the real news as well as the laughs.

His program comes on every afternoon and it was difficult for me to watch his show. Now, I just record them with my DIRECTV in Texas and I can watch them whenever I have the chance.

Stephen Colbert frequently brings guests onto his news program. Instead of trying to be nice to the guests or be civil, he asks them the real questions which makes for some very interesting television. Frequently his guests will try to leave the stage because of the real information he is asking for on the show.

He has some ongoing segments that keep people very entertained. He does a segment about tech culture and what it is doing to America. Once a week he will highlight things that have happened online and make fun of the Internet babies and the things they do. It is extremely humorous and part of the reason that I like his show so much.

Steven Colbert is just one of the hosts of Comedy Centrals News that happens in the afternoon. You should definitely check it out.

I posted earlier that I was going to the book store today. Well, I did went to the book store and purchase my books for my two classes this fall. To my surprise the two books costs me $250 bucks. I was upset but I have no choice but to purchase them today since I will be need them tomorrow morning for my classes.

Anyways, we have a visitor today it is my brother-in-law from out of town since he is working here for four weeks.  My sister-in-law will be here this weekend. I am not looking forward to wake up extra early tomorrow for my morning class.

I have heard from my other boss that he is eager to earn his Bachelor's degree in Business Management because he wanted to venture into his own business in the near future. Honestly, I was really surprised to learn that you can actually bet online with your favorite sports such as baseball, basketball, football, soccer, hockey and lot more.


But did you know that Sports Betting Spot is a website dedicated to sports betting? The Sports Betting Spot provides different articles or topics related to sports betting such as team stats, betting odds, sports betting news, tips or tricks to succeed in online sports betting.

First, I have to go to the bookstore to purchase my books for my classes, have a brunch with hubby, pick up my check at my place of work, deposit the check, go to the firing range with hubby, read two chapters for tomorrow's class, write my paid tasks and I am hoping that I will be able to sleep early this evening.

How's your day so far blogger land? By the way, I got the image from Google.

Special Birthday Party Plans Online for Husband

My husband's birthday is coming up very fast. I got online with my hughs net so I could try and find some original, but simple ideas. I didn't want to plan anything to extreme and plan on purchasing decorations online. I hope to come up with some type of cake design that is suitable. He doesn't want to have a party that is too big either. We will probably just invite close family members. I still want everyone to have a good time, especially my husband since it is his special day.

We have been married for twenty six years. So, as you can imagine, we have walked down many beaten roads together. I want him to remember this birthday. I got on hughesnet internet and searched for simple birthday ideas on the Google search engine. I narrowed it down after getting back a lot of search results! There are so many great suggestions. I found invitation and cake ideas that are simple to make and decorative. I found many options for decorations that I can make in my own home. This is perfect because we are trying to save up money. I am very happy with all of the original ideas online.I wanted to personalize the decorations to make this day one that he will remember!

Cattleman's Steak House, Indian's Cliff Ranch

Yesterday was a great day because we went to one of the best steak house's in the nation which is located only a few miles outside El Paso, Texas. The name of the steak house place is the Cattleman's Steak House place which is located in the Indian's Cliff Ranch in Faben, Texas.

I was able to eat one and one half pound steak while my husband purchase the swordfish steak. Our meal also included rice, beans, coleslaw and bread. But surprisingly we were able to finished our food I think because we skip breakfast. Afterward dinner, we toured the Indian's Cliff Ranch which includes many animals such as ostriches, rabbits, horses, goats, deer and rattle snakes. They also have an old west town and actually there have been quite a few films that were filmed on the property such as Courage Under Fire with Meg Ryan, Lone Wolf Mcquade with Chuck Norris and a few other films.

We were about to visit the lake but it was too dark and it was starting to rain and so we decided to go home. By the way, here are some pictures of our trip to the Cattleman's Steak House and Indian Cliff Ranch.

Boost Mobile Program

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Boost Mobile. All opinions are 100% mine.

My husband is planning to get rid of his prepaid cellular phone and he is thinking of getting a Boost Mobile sometime this week. Well, to tell you the truth this will be the first time that my husband actually decided to switch from using prepaid cellular phone and he is actually considering on getting a Blackberry for the two of us.

I was checking the Boost mobile website today and you know what? I really like the Boost Mobile's Re-Boost program because this is totally awesome for people like my husband and me who are always busy with work and school. By the way, the Boost Mobile's Re-boost program offers three fundamental procedures for their entire customers to choose from such as Paying Online, Paying in Person or Paying by Phone. Frankly, I don't like to pay my bills in person that is why I am glad that Boost Mobile phone offer their Re-Boost program. I am definitely choosing the options pay online or pay by phone. I even found out today that you can even ask your friends or family members to pay your Boost Mobile monthly bill through Boost Mobile customer.

Take note, that Boost Mobile cellular phones are well adapted to the newest trend in our modern society today. For instance, you can use your Boost Mobile phones to update your Facebook status or even publish your moods in your Twitter account.

I Am Grateful

We had a blast this weekend and we really appreciate all the blessings that God has given to us. I was able to renew my covenants with the Lord yesterday and learned new things during the church services that I attended with my husband.

I felt at peace when I go to church and by reading the scriptures I am able to concentrate and focus on what is the best thing for me to do to reach my goal in the future. I was able to recharge spiritually and I thank our dear Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ for the all the blessings.

Tax Free Weekend

I went to the mall earlier today to purchase some clothes that I can wear every Sunday when my husband and I go to church to attend the church services. I purchase three blouses that I can mix and match with my skirts at home. I am glad that my husband is with me because he can help determine if the blouses that I choose will look good on me. Mine you, my husband is really a good critic and he will tell you what he has on his mind.

Anyways, I went to the fitting room and I have tried about ten clothes when I saw this old lady fell on the floor on my way out. I was shock because nobody was around to help her so I decided to go over and help her get back on her feet. She was very thankful that I was there to help her because she was frail and old.

Then I remember that my friend was telling me that her grandmother owned a Medical Alert System. It didn't really occur to me at first how important to own such an important thing not until the incident today in the mall.

Back Packs

I realize that I actually need to get new backpacks for my own use and for my husband as well. I almost forgot that he had been requesting me to go with him to the store so I can pick the color of the backpacks of my choice. Well, we are trying our best to be prepared for next week since school will start for me and hubby had to go back to school again to meet his new students.
 
Anyways, I just finished talking with my two sisters on the phone around six this evening. I really surprise them because I never told them that I was going to call them today after I took off from my place of work. I am glad that both my sisters Aiza and Nday are not working today. We talk for about two hours on the phone, an hour for each of my sisters. I decided to call them since I've heard from our mother that they are both planning to visit the rest of our family in Bohol by October.


I told my sisters that I am jealous of them because it will take a long time for me to go home and visit them. Hopefully, all our long-term goals will be achieved in the near future.

Bistek Tagalog

I am happy that I finally made Bistek Tagalog or Beef Steaks this evening for our dinner. I am excited to cook this meal again when my husband's folks will visit us from out of town.

Diet

Since I am not working today, I decided to do a quick grocery shopping and purchase some meats so I can cook a delicious meal tonight. Well, I have already marinated the meat but, I have to leave the meat marinated for an hour. Anyways, I am chatting with my friend Alexia and she invited us to go with her to watch the Diablo's Games this Friday.

I am not really into baseball games but I like to go anywhere and experience new things in life with my husband and friends. I am crossing my fingers that my husband will be free this Friday from his place of work so we can hang out again with our dear friend Alexia and finally meet her new boyfriend Carlos.

According to Alexia, Carlos is a good guy who adores her so much. I am praying and wishing that this guy will be the one for my friend Alexia because she had been to a lot of heartaches in the past. Well, I have read an article about Proti Diet and I think I might be able to convince my husband to try it.

Trigosamine

I am about to read the Review of Trigosamine this morning when I receive a call from a friend who recently moved from Germany to Texas. She was asking me if it is possible for me to go with her to get her Texas license later today. Well, I told her that I already have my day planned and my husband wants to check this new restaurant on the other side of town.

I feel bad because I will not be able to help her but spending time with my husband is always my first priority among others. I then told her that I will do my best to help her out next time when I am not busy or when I am not doing anything.

Anyways, I am looking forward for the month of September because it will be my husband's 29th birthday. My four sister-in-laws suggested having a costume party for my hubby's birthday or a swimming pool party. By the way, we lived close by each other so it is just easy to gather the immediate members of my husband's family.

Oh Tiles!

I finally found the perfect tiles to be used for my in-laws new acquired property. Actually, my father-in-law recently bought a three bedrooms house on the east side part of town which is about twenty to twenty-five minutes drive from where my husband and I lived.

Well, after I first laid my eyes on the house, I totally fell in love with the location of the house. The only one thing that I did not like about the whole property is that the bathroom tiles need be updated since the tiles were kind of old and outdated. The house has one master's bedroom, two regular size bedrooms, two bathrooms, a huge backyard and a garage that is perfect for two vehicles.

Anyways, I found these beautiful subway tiles from the Glass Tile Store who is one of the leading providers for any types of tiles across the nation today. The Glass Tile Store sells tiles such as Glass and Metal Tiles, Pearl Shell Tiles, Large Glass Tiles and more.

If you are interested please click any of the following links above for more detailed information about tiles.

The Other Guys and The A-Team

 Last Wednesday my husband and I had our days off from work and we have the chance to watch two movies. We watched the movie entitled The Other Guys with Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrel. The movie was hilarious and to tell you the truth the partnership between Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrel really clicks well.

Well, after watching the full throttle action and comedy pack movie titled The Other Guys we went to the mall and were checking new items at our favorite stores. Anyways, later that night we went to the cheap theater and watched another action movie called the The A-Team starring Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Rampage Jackson and Sharlto Copley.


Hubby really loves this movie that he even planned to purchase it soon. On the other hand, I thought the movie was great and it really captures the beauty of guys working together with different skills. Anyways, I am sure you can already tell that we love to watch movies together as a couple!

You go girl!

Thanks to Lemuel Craft
I really admire Danica Patrick for what she has done for all the professional and aspiring woman race car drivers through out the world. She has put herself on the map of NASCAR and has exhibited tremendous grace when under media pressure. On top of all this, she is a beautiful person both inside and out. She models for her sponsors and she gives back to her community by volunteering and donating to charity.

I am always super exited to watch her race in big NASCAR matches on my Direct tv with all my friends and family gather around. We always throw huge NASCAR parties and I always root for Danica. She gives the boys a run for their money and I love it when she wins. She is a great role model for young girls and anyone who aspires to be something. She knew how difficult it would be to become a professional driver as a woman but, she did not give up on her dream.

She is a very talented driver who is successful in all types of driving. She is even being considered for a European formula one racing team from the United States. I love watching her compete around the world. I hope she makes the team and she continues to have a long successful career in the professional driving world.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

 Hubby and I went to the movies and we watch the Prince of Persia "The  Sands of Time" with Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton and Ben Kinsley. My husband was very impressed because the movie was an adaptation based on a video game with the same title and so far the movie adaptation is the best so far.


The movie centers on a little boy (Jake Gyllenhaal) who grew up on the street and caught the attention of the King who later adopted him as his own son. Prince Dastan grows up to be a great warrior of Persia. He helps a young Princess by the name of Tamina played by Gemma Arterton to get the dagger that holds the power to reverse its time.

Insuring Your Life

I had a discussion with my manager earlier today at my place of work and she was sharing about her husband's life insurance. She was telling me that it was not easy to have loss her husband from cancer but she was thankful that though her husband passed away the money that she receives from the life insurance is huge enough to take care of the medical bills, home mortgage and for their two kids.

I saw in her eyes that she is still mourning about her husband's death but my manager is a strong woman whom I admire so much. She is like a second mother to me since I worked with her for almost three years now. I can tell everything to her from work related issues down to the issues that I have with my family in the Philippines.


Anyways, I have shared with her that my husband's Step-Father is thinking of getting another life insurance because he wanted to make sure that when he passed away, the loves ones that are left behind will have no trouble paying any bills that may arise. I am glad to know that my husband's step's-dad will have the opportunity to grab the No Medical Exam Life Insurance whenever he is ready to pick one in the future.

Dolce and Gabbana Watch

I have been planning to purchase a watch for myself for awhile now. I used to own a beautiful watch way back when I was still living in the Philippines. Well,  after I moved from the Philippines to the United States of America in 2006 I decided to left most of my jewelries at my ancestral home so my younger sisters can use them in due time.

Well, I have been searching forever for a unique and beautiful watch but, there was never a watch that stands out so far. But you know what? Today was another story because while searching the web I come across with this wonderful website called Blue Dial that specializes in different brands and kinds of watches for men and women?

One of the watch that really caught my attention is these beautiful dolce and gabbana watch. What I love about this dolce and gabbana watch is that it has gold tone stainless steel risky white dial and it has crystals all over it. This watch could pass for a bracelet and it is water resistant.

I have included a picture of my favorite dolce and gabbana watch from Blue Dial online store below so you will see how beautiful and how amazing the craftsmanship of the said watch that I mention above.


Well, ladies and gentlemen? What are you waiting for? Hurry and check this out today!

Rough Monday

I just finished practicing judo and jiu jitsu with my husband who is a certified martial arts instructor in Judo and trying his best to be certified in Jiu Jitsu pretty soon. My body is all sore and I can barely move. This type of martial arts is physically demanding and the moves are usually rough. We practiced for an hour in our apartment since hubby has complete equipment like the mats and the GI.

Anyways, I am going to take a quick shower and get ready since we are planning to go to the mall and go to the movie theater. I will probably go to the pharmacy later tonight to purchase a pain reliever medicine.

Window Replacement

My sister-in-law J who is the youngest among the girls will be moving in Texas in two weeks. I was chatting with her about an hour ago and found out that she had already started packing her things in preparation for her big move. She is actually getting a divorce from her husband of eight years. Though it was a shocking on my part, my husband's family already had some intuition that she and her ex-husband to be will get divorce eventually.

I am trying my best to be neutral about the situation and not add fuel about her chaotic life. She is only three years older than my husband so she is like a big sister to me. Well, I decided to offer her my help if she needs it because I know packing can be very stressful especially on her current situation. She doesn't want to live on their old house because it brings old memories.

Anyways, after chatting her through my facebook account, I then have the opportunity to visit the San Antonio windows replacement that my friend shared with me.

Surgery SEO

I am literally melting, it is really hot outside. I want to go swimming in the swimming pool in our apartment complex but dang it is too hot. I am looking forward for winter season. Well, instead of going outside I am just here at home and waiting for the time when I go to work. I will be working until midnight tonight and I off tomorrow.

One of my friends actually invited us to attend the music under the stars event starting tomorrow afternoon but since it is Sunday my husband and I always devoted our time to attend church sacrament service and after that visits members afterward. I hope they will have the same event on another day so we can enjoy and spend time with my family's friend.

On the other hand, a friend from last spring semester told me that she is considering on talking to a Plastic Surgery SEO about her condition. I never dare to confront her about her problem but I think it is better left unsaid.

Four Effective Cures

I have read an article from Prevention Magazine about getting the best out from natural remedies such as:

  • Drinking Cocoa- is known for reducing your blood pressure especially for people with severe hypertension. The best way to see the result is to drink two hot cocoa per day. Take note, cocoa does not replace the medicine that you need to take but it surely helps boosts the effects.
  • Acupuncture- it helps relieves pain chronic back pain and headaches. It also helps ease severe osteoarthritis of the knee. I have wanted to try these but I never dare to do it. Well, the needles from the acupuncture release a natural pain killing chemicals.
  • Massage- I always love being massage by my husband and actually massage helps cure depression. It is a known fact that depression is cause by stress. Massages are an effective weapon for anti-depression.
  • Tai Chi- it is a type of martial arts that involves slow meditative exercise regimen that helps people with insomnia improve their quality of sleeping. Tai Chi also reduces the risks of falling and improves balance.

By Law

Two more weeks to go and I am going back to school again to attend the fall semester 2010. I am looking forward to learn more about my major which is Psychology and to meet new classmates and new professors. I am registered for two classes this fall semester and I am schedule to go to school Tuesday and Thursday per week. During those days I am expecting to be working at night at my place of work.

Well, work today was fun because I was able to meet two of our new crews. I am glad that I was able to help them familiarize the keys that needed to be punch every time a customer will order something from the menu board. My boss also told me to train them with all the things that we do as a cashier from managing the cash register and balancing cash register machine by the end of every shift.

Anyways, I am looking forward for a little joy ride with my hubby later tonight. He told me that we will be visiting their old house that he grew up before moving to Texas. The drive is about 45 minutes from where we reside now.

By the way, today I had the chance to know more about American Residential Law Group. Well, folks do you have any plans for tomorrow?

Painting Contractor

There are times when I ask myself why life seems unfair to me. I do my best all the time  to be the best wife my husband deserves to have, the best daughter my parents can ask for, the best sister that my younger siblings will look up and the best  friend that you can count on, but it seems to me that everyone just ignore my efforts.

Actually, I am just burned out with this situation I have with my family in the Philippines. I hate to say it but they only send me email or give time to chat with me online when they want something from me. I felt used and being abused with my own family. I always worry about them and think of them all the time.

I have told my family already before to at least keep me updated all the time about their whereabouts in the Philippines, but I never received even a short email from them unless I will beg them to do it. Most of the times they only email me or wait for me to be online when they need something like money. I am getting tired and worn out with the same issue over and over again.

Well, I am glad that I was able to talk with a relative who also resides in Texas about an hour ago. Recently, they purchase a four bedroom house in Austin and they are looking for the best Austin painting contractor around their area.

Bartending to music

Guest post written by Spencer Hays

I took a job as a bartender at a music venue years ago because my friend owned it and I thought it would be a great way to see a lot of great bands.

Well, I was right. Of all the bands I’ve seen while I tended bar here, most of them have been good and many have gone onto greater things and become wildly popular. My friend kind of has an ear for that. But I never thought of the extra toll it would take on me to work at a place like this.

My ears have rang for years after shows and I thought it was just a normal reaction but I noticed lately that it was getting harder for me to hear customers’ orders – which definitely wasn’t good. I started looking up information about hearing loss and ways to fix it, including hearing aide types. I eventually came across some great reviews about some and asked some friends that I know that have them what they suggest I get. One mentioned a miracle hearing aide, so I think I’m going to get one and fix this problem before it gets much worse.

Shrek Forever After


 Last night was wonderful because I had the chance to spend quality time with my husband. We had dinner at one of the best Mexican restaurant here in town and after that we went to watch Shrek Forever After starring Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz at the cheap movie theater. My husband and I love Fiona and Shrek and we really enjoy the Shrek franchise.

I've learned one thing from watching the movie last night. I learned to appreciate simple things in life and I thank the Lord for giving me the man that I had prayed for ever since I could remember.

Neobux is Awesome!




I am more than happy to receive my first payment from Neobux. Honestly, when I first start clicking this paid to click website called Neobux I was not so sure if this work.  I have tried other paid to click sites but I just end up wasting my time and effort to earn a little extra income online.

Tuesday Rambling

I just finished eating my lunch and I can't believe that it is already 5:34 in the afternoon. I wanted to take a nap but decided not to because I know that if I take a nap now, I will end up having a headache. I am excited for tomorrow because I will get paid and as usual this is the time when I wire some money to my family in the Philippines. The exchange rate from dollar to peso has been low for the past weeks and it makes me mad because the cost of food in the Philippines and the living is so expensive.

I am just happy that husband doesn't really complain or whine on why I keep on sending money in the Philippines for my family. In fact, he is the one who reminds me when I forget things. For instance, hubby told me that his cousin who now resides in Paris is planning to attend IB school London early spring next year.

Precious Metal

Investing into Gold Bullion and Gold Coins is one of the best things that my father-in-law did for his family. I have never known these until my husband informed me. He had a talk with my husband a month ago and he wants my husband to starts investing into Bullion Coins.

I told my husband that I want to do a thorough research on my own so I can help him decided when is the best time to go all the way into gold investment venture. Well, as I research the web today, I have discover that Regal Gold Coins is an online company who have been helping thousands of new clients for over fifty years now. The Regal Gold Coins promise their entire clients to help them every baby steps of the way in order for them to become a successful gold investor.

Money Order

After my husband got out from his working place, he decided to purchase two money orders. One is for the electric bill and the other money order is for the gas bill. Here is the catch, while he was writing the address and the name of the company for some reason he made a switch and tried to erase it with a white out. When he told me what happen I was actually upset because I have no idea if he can use a white out to erase the mistake that he made with the two money orders.

Right now, he went to the business establishment where he purchases the money order to see if they can give him a refund for the money order. He hasn't called me yet so I am hoping that everything turn out well. Actually, my husband is planning to take me to dinner and to the movies tonight and of course I am always happy and excited to spend time with him as much as I can.

Well, we are planning to go to the firing range this Wednesday and after that pick up my check at work. Finally, I would like to check these amazing bathroom vanities. Anyways, it's time for me to get ready for a night full of fun.

Humba for Dinner


 We have humba for dinner and eggplant salad with steam rice at home. I am craving for humba so I went to the store and purchase all the ingredients that I need. Well, the store doesn't have the dried banana blossom so I just cook the humba without it. Anyways, I feel good because I made my husband a delicious meal and I feel good about that.

Media Needs

For those of you who don't know me well, let me tell you one of my other hobbies besides going to the firing range, traveling, singing, cooking, spending time with my husband and organizing; I actually loved to take pictures twenty-four seven. I have thousands of photos I have on my laptop as well as pictures stored in my desktop.

I am considering on putting my entire collections of pictures into a huge storage file like a photo archive. I am even planning on scanning the pictures and put them into my DVD-R. By the way, my father-in-law owns this wonderful DVD duplication guide and a couple of CD printers which is really great for photo printing.

Happy Saturday!





I have this brilliant idea for awhile now and I would like to do this today. Well, I am creating a menu for the whole week and the following week to come. I am pretty excited because I can actually combine our dishes from the Philippines, American Cuisine, Mexican Cuisine as well as Chinese Cuisine into our menu.

I would like to cook new things for my husband while hubby is in-charge for making the desserts since he love to bake pastries and cakes all the time. I bet ones my sister-in-law see the pictures they will be surprised that their brother actually knows how to bake.

I can't wait to see the results. Happy weekend everyone!

Piñata


 I recently attended a birthday party of my colleague's daughter about a month ago. Actually, the birthday party was held at their residence and there was a piñata hanging on the tree. The kids have a great time swinging the sticks to the piñata until all the candies and the one dollar bills came out.

Well, while growing up in the Philippines I remember that during special occasions my parents will always hang a clay pot filled with candies for the children to hit it. We have to be blind folded and we have to turn probably about ten times and try to hit the clay pot with force.

Looking to all the kids during the birthday party reminds me of my childhood memories. It is fun to be a kid!

By the way, I got the image from Google.

Planning to Create a Giveaway Contest

I can't believe that I already reach over a thousand posts today on this main blog. I am more than happy to see and reap my rewards from the hard work of writing general information which includes my personal life, entertainment, health and lifestyle, family, travel and a lot more.

I am approaching my second year anniversary as a paid blogger next month and I am actually planning a big contest for all my followers and friends in blogger land. I have no idea on how to start a contest online and I would like to ask some ideas to all the paid bloggers out there who already had experience in creating or host  a giveaway contest online. I am very open to your ideas my fellow bloggers and I will be waiting for your suggestions.

In the meantime, I will be checking this marketing company that my friend Suzie told me yesterday. Well, folks  I better get some sleep before it's too late. I am looking forward on my day off this Sunday.

The Wedding Planner

Every woman loves the movie The Wedding Planner and I happen to be one of those women. It is starring the beautiful Jennifer Lopez and the very handsome Mathew Mcconaughey. It's about a woman who is exceptional at her job which happens to be planning weddings. She doesn't appear to be capable of a stable relationship herself as she plays around with the idea of an arranged marriage.


I like this film because it really reminds me of myself. I think that's why women like the chick flick romance films. We all think we are a little different and maybe too picky and will never find love. It always seems to happen in the absolute strangest ways and we crave that life changing moment in our own lives.


Luckily this film makes it on Direct tv all the time. I like to tune in half way through and watch until the end of the film. I don't care too much for how the two main characters meet each other and the background of her job but I do enjoy the love story. I love the part where Mathew Mcconaughey isn't sure whether he should stay with his fiance or fall for the wedding planner. It's a twisted tail of love and romance and it always leaves me longing for a love story of my own.

Lord, Please Help My Sister

I am very worried for my little sister because my mother informed me that she had high fever since Sunday and the fever never went down. I've read in the news that there are 9 children that died from Dengue fever in the city where my family lives. I told my mother to bring my sister to the doctor and see if what they can tell her just to be on the safe side. It is really hard to be far away from my family especially when one of my family members is sick. I pray to God that He will protect my little sister and I am praying for her fast recovery.

Desperate Me

I am planning to cut my hair short. I know my husband will not really like the idea but I definitely need a haircut. I am not sure if how short I would cut them but I am looking for a new hairstyle that is manageable. I have a lot of things to consider since a trip to the saloon means spending a lot of money. I might just end up visiting my close girlfriend in San Antonio and ask her to do it for me and I know she won't charge me a dime.

Earlier today, I already request a one week off from work because my husband and I are considering in going in a mini vacation in San Antonio this month before school starts. I am not sure yet if my boss will approve on my request but hopefully she will.

Anyways, while checking my mailbox today I overheard the apartment manager talking about vinyl shutters to one of his employees. I have no idea why but who knows only time will tell.

Vacation House

Today was the first day of school here in my place. I had noticed earlier today that the streets were busy and there are school zone signs on the road telling all drivers to slow down and watch for kids that are crossing the street. I went back to my normal morning shift.


Well, there were many new students and a few old faces that I recognized during school lunch break today. The store was full of students and there was a long line. I was the only cashier who was taking their orders upfront but it wasn't really a big deal to me. My colleagues are happy that business is back as usual and thank goodness that the students are back.

After the school rush my other co-workers help me clean the dining room. My boss was happy that we did our part to help each other during the school rush. Guess what? She awarded all the morning crews with a gift card worth $30 each.

Anyways, my lady boss will be off tomorrow and she is looking forward to visit the cottages that one of her relative owned.

Robin Hood 2010

 We just arrived from the movie theater not to long ago. My husband and I were watching Robin Hood starring Russel Crowe and Cate Blanchett and I think the movie was fabulous. The plot is very captivating and I really like the whole setting. I was a little disappointed with the ending but overall I absolutely like the movie.

I have always been a fan to Russel Crowe after I saw Gladiator.

Mama and Papa

I just realized right now that my parents will be celebrating their 29th wedding anniversary this month. Well, I talked to two of my younger sisters on the phone today and suggested them to make a surprised party for my parents. I will help them with financial matters and I just needed them to make this event a memorable one for my mother and father.


I was thinking of purchasing two tickets for them to go on a vacation in Hongkong just to unwind their selves and relaxed and enjoy each other. My parents are very hard working individuals who always give their best to provide for their big family. I know that it is not easy to have 12 children especially that the economy in the Philippines isn't great at all but they were able to send all their children to school. They already have a daughter who is a registered nurse; two daughters that are licensed English teacher and Physical Education teacher and two oldest daughters that have Banking and Finance degree.

My brother is planning to become a Patent Lawyer in the future. He is now pursuing a four year degree in Political Science and is looking forward to become the first lawyer in my family. I am happy that everyone in the family has their own goal that they wanted to achieve in their life.

Belle of My Eyes

I was able to chat with some of my former classmates in elementary and high school lately online and we are mostly remembering all the funny things that happened to us while growing up. Everyone can't fathom that we are now living in different places or different countries around the world. Some of my former classmates are married and most of them are in a relationship.

Some of my classmates even share old pictures online that were taken during school activities which include Girl Scout and Boy Scout camping, teacher's day, Valentine's Day, Christmas day and a lot more. I can't believe how skinny I was while growing up. One of the pictures shows that I was wearing my Kung Fu shoes and pigtail. Honestly, it brings joy to my heart to remember the old good days.

Anyways, I found out that my childhood friend who recently moved from the Philippines to Canada is planning to visit me for Christmas this year. I am so excited to see her because she is like a sister to me. Finally, I am interested to check Arizona beauty schools for my sister who is getting ready to migrate here.
