holiday away

Some of my friends will be going out of the country and or will be traveling to some beautiful spots of the country (just like <a href="http://bookit.com/caribbean/dominican-republic/samana/">samana) before New Year. Why on one of the most busiest and merry times of the year you ask?! well because they can't be exposed (especially the kids) to fireworks smoke and dust during these times, that's why. So there, it is also now I realized why during this times hotels and resorts are just practically fully booked, mostly for health reasons and probably extensions of their holiday vacation.

go green

Holiday rush has started making people so busy with buying stuffs for Christmas. In fact, my mom and I were out yesterday and practically shopped for some more gifts we are be giving away. And while we were scouring the mall, we notice this green shopping that basically focuses on products that are earth and nature friendly. Though it is really not yet well embraced by me, there are a few good heads around the booth and buying! Wasn't able to check it out though, for we are running out time but will try to get a better look next time

my wii

Guess what?! I finally got myself a Wii! thanks to my friend Glo for the hook up of this brand new gaming console, that arrived earlier last week together with the other shopping loots of my friends and me. What's really nice to the unit that I got is the fact that it already a Wii Sports - thus games and other stuffs are already included in the package. Though my sister is asking for a guitar hero game for Christmas, which I'm not sure if I'll be able to get - price wise? it's not really ideal to buy here. So we'll probably wait for another sale to get the other props for this. But for now,will make sure to enjoy the included games! woohoo!

quick shop stop

Now that holiday shoppers are flooding the malls, I might hit the mall as early as possible to avoid human traffic on the cash registers. Well, since I'm not planning to buy so much stuff I'd probably go on a Saturday morning, will just get a few couple of rugs, holiday themed if possible to be placed on the entrance door of our house and mom's crib too. And I might buy handful of other Christmas treats too for the little carolers who happens to stop by almost every night in our house.

water softener blurb

Will be going out later today to check out this water softener thing that my aunt has been bragging about for sometime now. She said that it is advisable for us to get one so we can have soft water - oh whatever that means. But she said that it gives a lot of great benefits, health wise. So I guess i'ts really good huh. Well I just hope that's it's not too expensive and all, so I'd be able to grab two, one for us and for my mom as well.

me? a CSR?!

Funny how somebody asked me if I am working as a call center agent or something. At first I really was wondering why in the world did she asked me if I do so, is it too obvious with my dark circled eyes?! or maybe I look like a zombie walking in a broad daylight when we bump into each other two days ago. But then, after realizing my deep thought, she just blurt that the reason she asked me that is the fact that she often sees me online at wee hours of the day, which is really odd for a non csc agent to be. And so I told her that I work online, and practically burn myself from working overtime! haha.

hands full

This will be my official last post for today, since I got my hands full on offline stuff this morning I'd probably be back online during the afternoon. Will have to rush my orders to the courier service and check our house, it has been weeks since the last time I visited. Will also try to pay bills and check out cheap insurance offering by a friend. A quick trip at the mall in the mid afternoon if my body still permits me to do so! So there, quite busy huh! You sure bet!

identity theft protect

Been blogging for quite some time now and I probably should get one of those identity theft protection just like the other bloggers who got this protection thing. Although there is nothing to protect as much as I hope to have, well I guess basic stuff like my online photos which are hosted on my flickr are the most important thing with me. Not much of an online based when it comes to finances and other personal stuff. That's why.

chatting

It has been more than five months since the husband left to work in another country. And the only way we can keep up with each other is through online chatting, actually I had to search for live chat software that will help us talk more without all the hassle use of the free chats online. You see, we only have few minutes everyday to talk because of our conflicting time schedules. So just to make sure everything will work out right, like better chat paths and no down time during the sessions, great software for online talking is a must in order to do so. It may costs a few bucks but if you try to think see the advantage of having one, it's just plain worth it.

Bath tub likey!

My cousin sent me this photo of one of their cruise bathroom, actually she just wanted to show me the gold plated faucets of the ship. It was all so nice and pretty I actually wanted to have one! but then again, it's pretty expensive so I guess getting one wouldn't be a practical thing to do. The husband might freak out if he knows what I buy from our money! And that scene is not too pretty to imagine, so there, let me just show you guys the uber nice bath tub, which is indeed sparkly clean and gleaming! well done cousin! :D

tummy ache

Dear daughter has been bugging me about her tummy ache, which makes me and my mom too worried. You see, she got sick earlier this year due to amoeba, gotten her frequent throw ups, high fever and lose bowel movement. Freaking dangerous if not treated as the doctor told us for it can lead to dehydration and death. Good thing we were fast enough to bring her to the hospital and had her checked. So to prevent virus and bacteria to our water that we take, we bought ukf7003axx water filter aside from buying purified drinking water. Just to be safe you know. So about her tummy ache now? been monitoring her and already informed her doctor and we'll see. Hope it's just a phase and is not a real problem.

UKF7003AXX, UKF7002AXX PuriClean water filter

paranoia

Oh men, just when we thought my parent's business is going on so smoothly, another issue arises. It's just that this one occupant who seems to be doing weir stuff around the apartment unit that they are staying. Well nothing serious actually, it's just that they usually goes out at the wee hours of the night and never comes home during the broad daylight. Maybe they are working as call center agents or something which require night shifts but I dunno, they just intrigues me. I should have gotten from them clearance of some sort or international background check whatever when they first move in. Oh well, maybe it's just me and my paranoia thinking aloud. Don't mind me. And oh, gotta go and take a peek while this renter leaves their house! haha.

online work and software talks

I was up early this morning, in fact, too early because I had to finish some tasks that are due today. Good thing, few of my friends are still up so I wasn't alone, we buzz and message each other from time to time, having a few chit chats during our breaks and go back to blogging after a few good laughs. Anyways, we were most of the time talks about our work and earlier, we discussed about software development that we might consider of studying since it is well, very much in demand for online work opportunities, I honestly doesn't have a slightest idea on how it works, but as I said, we might try on studying about it. Let's see...

accounting 101

If ever given a chance, I will continue my study in Accountancy. Who knows, I might be able to pass the board exam too and be able to work in the famous Las Vegas Accounting Firm -heads up. You see, it has been one of my longest dream to work in an accounting firm just like that, I used to imagine myself in my power suit meeting clients and dealing with their accounting problems and book keeping and whatever. And of course, we all know that this profession pays a lot! thus making accountants stays on the pedestal of the high earners. But you know, work of a CPA is a no joke, it is a hard task to do all the stuff that involves yes, accounting.

log

taken during our trip to Bohol last year. I woke up before the sun rises because i wanted to see for my self the Bohol sunrise! :) i even had a sole time while enjoying the cold sand of the beach... i took this shot while looking at the other tourists gathering for a quick trip in the shark's breeding area, a few hundred meters away...

first

eversince i was a kid ive'd always dream of becoming a flight attendant. not knowing of the good pay it reciprocates but with the thought of flying to different countries. i really wanted to go places. but it took me 25 long years to experience it the first time. domestic flight, that is. though i'm still hoping to travel even not as a flight attendant. duh! :) maybe, i'll get rich and just travel for leisure! bwhahahaha! good luck to me! :)

ceiling

Ceiling of the reception area of Maribago Beach at Cebu Philippines, while composing myself after the long travel i found this interesting ceiling structure above us, so i took my camera out and voila... shot from above!

cake

an up close and personal shot of the cake my sister has during her birthday given by her friends. it was so chocolatey that i ended up eating the chocolate topper! hahaha.. talk about being a choco addict here! and i heart the not so sweet icing it has... yummy!

on acai

I have been thinking lately if I would go for those Acai Berry Energy Supplement that are being sold in the market today,having been known to suppress ones appetite, I am one hell of an intrigue lady here. I mean, c'mon everyone wants to get back to their before pregnancy body, right, and I am one of those many mommies hoping that one day, the before waistline measurement would come back. But you see, being so busy and lazy forbids me not to get the right work out exercise I should have, thus inquiring for such diet pills is something I do for now. Who knows, I might get the body I want after some number of tablets.

fun otd wedding

We first here the story behind the beautiful getaway destination through my dad who already had an experience vacationing on different islands and vacation spots, he says that there are so many awesome resorts to choose from once you are there, and only enjoyment and relaxation is what you will feel there. Anyways, we are thinking of grabbing one of those packages a certain beach can offer, since we didn't have an offical honeymoon after our wedding three years ago, I guess that this is the time to experience that, even just for a while. So there, I search and look for hot spots that we might consider, and most of the resorts are tagged with ! meaning, most of them are offering beach destination weddings, I think. And although I love weddings, I might pass on the idea of having to stay with so many guests roaming around, what I would want to have is a peaceful beach experience wherein we can do whatever we want, with only a few people surrounding us. How I wish we can get this dream happen before the year ends. Anyways, if you are also looking for destinations for your vacation, check out karismahotels.com!

I took out my camera, take the shot and here.... i love the indoor lights of the room. Cozy and warm. i wonder how many people have had sitted on this bench...

So there, we will announce when we are going to focus on the shoe shopping in a short while...

invites talk

My sister will sponsor another child this coming Sunday, and asked me if I can accompany her. I'm not sure if I can since my name was not listed from the Baptism Invitations that was sent to her, we don't know if the event is head counted or whatever since it was not indicated on the baptism invitation itself. Actually, that is one thing that matters to me, the number of guests allowed to attend, so we'll know if my mom or my daughter can come with me to the party or not. Just to be sure you know.

Christening Invitations - have you experienced receiving a personalized one!? because when my daughter were baptized, I made sure to order a unique and personalized photo invite for my daughter, it was quite expensive compare to the generic ones but really outstanding! That is what www.express-invitations.com is offering! classic but well made invitations for all occasions, even for first communion invitations!

Nice silvers

More and more bloggers are getting hook on writing about buying of silver . Well, actually I can't but too, you know, because with times like this when everything is cost rising, it is really a smart move to finally investment your money in something that is known to be effective. Such as investing in gold and the likes. Although starting up a business is one good choice too, like food business for example, you will still have a lot of things needed in order to come up with effective food business, like getting franchise or coming up with new ideas on the likes of people and even hiring man power to run the said business. And in times like this, more and more are really trying their luck with investing into something that can very much secure their future.

Your Blood Type and You

TYPE O


You want to be a leader, and when you see something you want, you keep striving until you achieve your goal. You are a trend-setter, loyal, passionate, and self-confident. Your weaknesses include vanity and jealously and a tendency to be too competitive.

TYPE A


You like harmony, peace and organization. You work well with others, and are sensitive, patient and affectionate. Among your weaknesses are stubbornness and an inability to relax.

TYPE B


You're a rugged individualist, who's str aightforwa rd and likes to do things your own way. Creative and flexible, you adapt easily to any situation. But your insistence on being independent can sometimes go too far and become a weakness.

TYPE AB


Cool and controlled, you're generally well liked and always put people at ease. You're a natural entertainer who's tactful and fair. But you're standoffish, blunt, and have difficulty making decisions.

8 Things I did Yesterday

so what are the things I did yesterday...
  1. woke up late, enjoyed the sunless sky and bummed on our bedroom
  2. had a quality time with my daugther morning til night
  3. cooked lunch
  4. checked my internet connection
  5. call and follow up the post office for my parcel
  6. went back to my parent's place
  7. replied to tons of emails
  8. slept early :D

actually I realized that there are so many things that has not been on my list, and all this time I thought that yesterday was just one of my unproductive day! I'm totally wrong, done so many things din pala :D

lack of supplies

When we visit a public hospital some few weeks back and I can't help but feel pity for those who are confined. The medical equipments and supplies like foley catheter and the likes are so old and most of the stuff are already damaged. If only the Government allocates right budget to purchase this equipments, but we all know the budget goes straight to the pocket of those who are in charge. you see, there are numbers of medical group that sells home and health care supplies that are so affordable maybe specially if bought in bulk like Allegro Medical group, it is one of the largest and most technologically advanced independently owned online retailers of life enhancing products. i mean, specially now those who are in the office that is responsible for orderings and supplies allocations can view and requests for price quotes online, they can even browse on the website online catalog for specifications and other matters. and here's the catch their eCatalog offers serious limited time specials and discounts to anyone who signs up.

And yes, she was also beside me when I opened the box and pull out the items one by one! she could have hold a portable barcode scanner to make the effect really convincing! It was really a fun experience for her, no one told her to feel and be that way actually! :D It just so happen that she enjoys seeing new loots and stuffs out of those magic boxes! lol

Though he wished to have one but have no idea on where and how to order it. I could have help him you know, but the thing is, he was way too late to tell me about his move announcements that is why I wasn't able to get him a bunch.

Though we all know that is mostly being given/thrown by the expectant's friends, but the fact that you are given one of the baby shower invitation can make one feel special.

Speaking of babies invitation, I happened to be invited on one of my previous colleagues shower party to be held at one of our friend's house, and I just love the personalized invitation baby that they sent! Cute and dainty! Perfect for the mom who'll soon be giving birth to a baby girl! ;D

Detoxify Safely - Thanks Eds!

Detox cleanses and body fasts have become very popular as the focus on health has increased. There are many detox diets and pills out on the market, though, that can cause as much harm as they do good. If you are interested in cleansing your body of toxins from alcohol, tobacco, fatty food or general environmental impurities, here is a safe way to go about it that won’t cramp your lifestyle or pose health complications.

Step 1
Drink plenty of pure water (distilled, filtered, etc). Eliminate coffee from your diet. You can drink green tea as a substitute.

Step 2
Include fiber rich foods in your meals. Organic grains, fresh fruits and vegetables such as radishes, cabbage and beets are good to add to your diet. Eliminate refined sugars, alcohol and saturated fats from your daily meals.

Step 3
Use vitamins and herbal supplements to promote a healthy liver. Taking vitamin C, dandelion root and milk thistle may help cleanse and protect the liver. A liver that is functioning properly is important for overall health.

Step 4
Exercise each day to detox the body daily. Practicing yoga or qigong can be beneficial as many exercises in these systems can help with specific health problems.

Step 5
Relieve stress in your life by practicing meditation. Doing breath meditation for 20 minutes each day can calm you as well as oxygenate your body.

Step 6
Remove toxins from your body by taking sauna baths or using detoxifying patches. You can also take a hot bath with baking soda and Epsom salts or sea salts to detoxify your body. Soak in the bath for 20 minutes and then gently scrub your skin; do this once a week.

Step 7
Try hydrotherapy or dry brushing your skin to improve circulation. You can do hydrotherapy by alternating between hot and cold water when showering. Dry brushing stimulates skin renewal through exfoliation.

gifts for baby

Before I forgot, been in the mood to buy baby gifts for the kids in the neighborhood who'll celebrate their birthdays this July. Actually, on the second, my god daughter will celebrate her first birthday and I am still empty handed. Since my mom and I will hit the mall tomorrow, I'll just grab her a gift from there. If only I was informed bit early, I should have ordered from babynest.com a very cute stuff for her! It'll sure be a hit and her mom which is my close friend will surely love! And the fact that I can also hoard some more stuff for my daughter too! Love it! From all those personalized stuff that are really budget friendly to all those unique baby items they are offering, really really tempting! hehehehe
