Vacation Activities for Kids

>> Monday, March 23, 2009

I just had some inventory and general cleaning on the house as we were about to have someone do some construction works on our wall and gates. As I’m going to spend sometime in the house to assist the workers regarding their food I would have extra time to do some house arrangement. The kids will start their summer vacation next week so we’ll have plenty of time to fix their new room. My two girls are getting older now and we want them to have their own so they can arrange their own things the way they want it.

As I am fixing things in the house I discovered some plain white clothes that can be personalized with my kids’ names on it. I saw a non-toxic and easy to use rubber stamp for clothes and I want to try it this summer vacation so the kids will have something to keep them busy. They’re so interested on doing artistic things so I thought it would be best to start on this one. Of course I’ll be thinking on more ways that they can use their spare time.


:Food Friday : Pancit Malabon

>> Friday, March 20, 2009

This is Pancit Malabon but not bought from Malabon but cooked from our very own sister in our church, Sister Cresing. Her grandson and my godson Marrion celebrated his first birthday and this is their blowout in our church on the Sunday following the child's birthday. She's like a pro cook when it comes to cooking almost any lind of recipe, everyday or occasion food.

You'll really love her cooked food when you'll have the chance to taste it! She even made a living out of it when she at one time sells breakfast meals. It was a hit just like this special pancit malabon with a sauce that will make you forget the day lol! It made us really full on the belly!

Happy Food Friday to all, enjoy your weekend!


Backup Storage For My Image Files

>> Thursday, March 19, 2009

I just love taking pictures of almost everything that interests me including children, babies, sceneries, flowers, food, paintings and all subjects that I think is worth catching for. My site is a testimony of my hobby and flair for photos because this is where I download and let others see what I have to share. Picture makes stories and helps me a lot to make my blog interesting to viewers.

When I go to remote areas away from the bustling city and internet cafes I make sure that I carry my extra memory stick so I’ll have maximum storage capacity for whatever shots I may be interested in. It’s always reassuring for me to have backup storage for large image files so I will not have limitations on taking pictures.


He's First!

>> Tuesday, March 17, 2009

I called the house to check on Josh and to ask if the graduation materials were there already. Since I can't be on leave for two consecutive days I asked Josh' school service to get his toga and program for Friday's graduation. The kids were not notified verbally about the lineup of outstanding students and we were told to just wait for the program copy to know everything about the ceremony.

I was happy to know and somewhat excited when Mom told me that Josh got the first place in their kinder class, WOW! Even Josh was so excited when he told me, actually he's really waiting for the list because he wanted to receive a medal again this year just like last year. Congrats Josh dear! We thanked God for this!


:Today's Flowers #31

>> Monday, March 16, 2009

This is another color of my entry in my other blog 'Moments of my Life' where I posted the red variety of this flower, this photo was taken at our backyard while the others were from my cousin's garden where he has more bountiful blooms of this kind. This flower has a thorny body but not as hard as that of roses thorns. What's different in these kinds are their big long leaves complementing petite blooms, makes a lot of contrast, isn't it?

See other Today's Flower entries here.


: Food Friday - Max's Lumpiang Shanghai

>> Friday, March 13, 2009

You can see here the Max's resto lumpiang shanghai, one of their specialty in the store. What I liked about their lumpiang shanghai is their beautiful presentation, see how they made a bowl out of lumpia wrapper. This is a shot from my niece' wedding reception where we had chicken, pancit. chopsuey, lumpia and dessert.

Happy Food Friday to all, enjoy your weekend!


Personalized Gift Cards

>> Thursday, March 12, 2009

Gift card represents the personality of the giver and I enjoy doing gift cards when it comes to my kids’ gift to their friends and classmates. I always have time to do personalized gift card bearing my kids’ names for special touch.

Last holiday season I did a hundred personalized gift cards with simple and cute designs befitting the whole family identity. For my girls I chose pretty character designs and for hubby and me I picked some simple ones. Of course my Josh wouldn’t be left off as I’ve chosen his favorite hero characters. I hope the person we’re giving gifts will appreciate the effort and hope they keep it too. Since I was a child I always keep the gift cards that go with the gifts. It’s my way of remembering those thoughtful friends and family that gave me special gifts.


:WW - Old Drums

>> Wednesday, March 11, 2009

This drumset lasted for years now but still it serves the whole church during the praising. Well we're planning to replace it once we can afford to buy a new one. It's actually given by my brother few years back.

Secured Forever!

>> Monday, March 9, 2009

Securing yourself and your family takes a lot of perseverance and money. Security covers not only health and money but life as well. People differ in their perspective of being secured. Some have much insurance on their properties, others on health and personal things and most I know gets life insurances to insure that when they leave this world their loved ones will not worry about money.

I was told by a friend that she got a really good deal when she browsed for online term life insurance quotes. This way she was able to compare prices and led her in getting a competitive price. Well that’s their opinions in securing their life, as for me the best insurance ever is following God’s path, rest assured you’ll have your lifetime and life after death insurance.


: Food Friday - Orange and Shrimps

>> Friday, March 6, 2009

This is a beautiful arrangement of orange, shrimps and other veggies. It’s actually one of the decorative foods laid on my boss' wedding buffet table. It’s perfectly done and I loved it! I would have loved to do these things also – that of making foods not only a stomach’s delight but for the eyes as well. It’s very artistic and anyone would love to see their table with decorations like these.

Happy Food Friday and enjoy your weekend!


Finally A Replacement!

>> Thursday, March 5, 2009

I’m having a hard time arranging my things in my office. I have to put away all unnecessary files so my turn over would be much easier. Three weeks ago I finally found someone who will replace me. I was the one who personally examined and interviewed her so I’ll know if she’s capable of the duties that she’ll be handling. This time we hired an Accounting graduate with few years experience in all accounting areas. I liked her on site and I think she can manage to handle multi-tasking jobs that I’ll give to her.

Now I feel better that soon I can finally get on leaving my work in BT&T and just work on a part-time basis. I can start some renovation on the house and arrange my things like documents, jewelry, photo albums and many other accessories. My work has really limited my time organizing my household so that’s my priority once I started my part-time job. I’ll have 3 days work in the office, 3 days in the house and 1 day for fellowship. I guess that’s good enough.


:WW - Green Pond In Business Area

>> Wednesday, March 4, 2009

This is the beautiful pond beside our office building. It's located in the middle od the busy business area near Eastwood in one vacant lot there where there are also flowering plants and beautiful bushes. A family is taking care of all the plants and flowers in the garden and making a living out of it. I just recently bought flowering plants for my Mom. Too sad the owner told them to vacate the land at the end of this month because they're going to construct a building there.

Achieving Your Dream House

>> Monday, March 2, 2009

Every couple dreams of owning a house of their own when they started building their family. It’s a culmination of their dreams because that’s where they will raise their kids, plan their lives and live with each other. The only thing that prevents them to achieve this dream is the high price of owning house and the difficulty in having your home mortgages.

I’m glad that there are Home Mortgages Online which helps families in achieving their specific needs for a house of their own. Choosing the best home mortgage loan is of utmost importance as there are things to be considered in dealing with financial companies that offers home mortgage loans. For more crucial ideas on comparing home mortgages online, head over to Amerisave, a fast-rising online retail mortgage company offering the best deals in home mortgage loans. You can also find the profile of Amerisave here. It’s very important to choose the one which suits your qualifications and specific needs because it entails your financial budget and your ability to maintain a good credit standing with the company you choose.

My brother is an engineer and sometimes he helps his clients choose the best mortgage loan for their houses. He always see to it that they choose a company with good reputation and credible enough to go through all your specifications. After all it’s one of the most important investments ever to come into your life.

Knowing the Symptoms

>> Sunday, March 1, 2009

As a mom of three kids one of whom is only on his preschool I make it a point to know their weaknesses in all areas of sickness. My eldest daughter Ruth who is now 11 years old proved to be the most healthy as she’s not easily infected with viral or other diseases unlike my second child Gengen whose susceptive to colds and cough. I gave her natural vitamins coming from citrus fruits to avoid getting viral infections from environment.

On my part I do some researches on our medical books and over the net to know tips and information on getting the best Treatments for Symptoms because it’s always best to know the symptoms so you can prevent your children from getting sick. Like what my mom always told me when we were younger that an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure, I think that really makes sense. We as parents should really be responsible for our children’s health because God has entrusted these little angels to us. We must protect them from illness and any other harmful elements that will make them sick.

There are many online sites that provide information on treatment and symptoms on almost all diseases like the usual disease for our elderly family members which are the Alzheimers. I know this disease because my auntie was suspected of having this kind of illness when she reached 60 years old. It was a saddening moment for her only daughter when she learned it because her memory started to lose control then. She would suddenly forget her daughter’s name and sometimes even her way going back her house. You could really know the symptoms of this disease early in time if you know the sites that offer helpful information. For information on disease symptoms and the causes and prevention of Alzheimers, read the article of Dr Daniel Amen. Check out the other Daniel Amen profile here for more helpful information. It’s a great help that nowadays online information can be searched through as easily as this because it can save us money and prevent the sickness from getting worse. That's what you call modernization benefits.


She Found Love!

My niece Heidi entered the world of married life and she chooses me to be one of her sponsors. I was happy to accept it as she’s like my own dating back the day she was born when I was just 14 years old. I remember myself always wanting to take care of her on my time after school. My day wouldn’t be complete if I hadn’t played the cute little baby she was. When she grew up she became very close to me and Redge and it continued until her college days when she lived with us. She returned to her grandma’s house after college and pursued her teaching career.

She’s a preschool teacher now in a Baptist school and well loved by her students and their parents due to the special attention that she always gives to her beloved students.
Her love story started also in this school when someone very close to her hubby now inquired a year ago for her kid’ schooling. That person didn’t continue with enrolling her children but introduced Heidi to Lister. The two didn’t meet for some months and Ina (the matchmaker) thought that they’re not interested with each other. One day Ina was surprised that the two told her they’re already committed to each other. They found themselves falling in love with each other and decided to end this relationship to a permanent commitment in life - a wedding vow to love each other forever.
