Aspiring Cook :)

Ok I admit I am not a good cook and definitely don’t have a passion for cooking but lately I found myself holding the pan and stirring spoon. I used to cook for our family once in a while but not all the time. My knowledge in cooking is limited to simple recipes only but I guess if will have all the proper ingredients, tools and ample time to do it then for sure I’ll master this craft as well.

About 2 weeks ago I cooked a special lunch for our family that every one loved (of course they must hehe!!). I made a fruit salad the night before our Sunday lunch and Buffalo wings, crabs with oyster sauce and chili crabs. Actually I just got the recipe online and thought of trying it and they turned our good so for sure I will cook them once again.

Manic Monday #180

Wow it's Monday once again, another new week. here are some questions that I had answered.
Are you usually late, early or right on time?
No, I may be late few minutes but I am usually on time as I hate waiting too.

What would be harder for you, to tell someone you love them or to tell them that you do not love them back?
Hmm... I guess both for me, in the family we don't say I love you to each other as it seems corny or too formal for us.
Which would you rather have: a high salary or job satisfaction?
I'll be hypocrite if I will not say I want a high salary but I reckon before I can have that I have to work on that and do good on my job.

Not So Comfortable

I went home early tonight as it was so hot even before the rain starts to drop. I felt so exhausted and could not even breathe. Blame it on the humidity and too hot weather... arghhh... Upon reaching home I immediately slumped on my bed as I was too tired. I was up and about the whole day plus add the heat so I end up just like beaten.

Dinner was served and it was a sumptuous one. Thanks to my mom who's been cooking for the two of us, meal is always ready even before I arrived. She knows that I am tired so she'll never expect me to cook when I got home.

I still have allergies on my hands and feet and that is quite unsightly to see but it;s manageable. I am not comfortable with my work place here at home so I'm wishing I can have a good chair and table. I am not productive when I'm not comfy. Tired that I am . I am snoozing in a minute or so

Be a Responsible Driver

Have you heard the shocking news lately when a woman and her 3 year old daughter that was run over by a big bus in EDSA? The mother survived but her right arm was amputated but her daughter was so unfortunate because it died on the spot. This is so heartbreaking and it was even caught in the CCTV camera. Though it is an accident, the driver should have been alert and responsible for he has done. I guess the driver is in jail right now.

I also would like to remind those vehicle owners who really have no conscience while parking on the no parking zone. I wish the motorhome towing will caught them and be fined for doing that. Some drivers just park and not minding that they are obstructing others and sometimes cause traffic.

Manic Monday #179

Hiya, It's Monday once again and can you notice that time is like a speeding bullet? It's a brand new week and some people hate Mondays especially those working 9-5 and hurrying up to go to work. Anyway, I thought of answering these questions, so here it goes.

What is the first thing you notice about people?
I always notice people's smiles. If they smile at me then probably they can get a smile back from me. That is if I know them hehehe. There are different smiles though, some are sarcastic, fake and sincere.

What fashion trend do you just not get?
Call me not fashionable but I just can't dig those gladiator shoes that some women wear. Not all people can pull this of so don't be a victim. I've seen a woman who wears one and oh dear she looks like she's going to battle with Goliath.. LOL

It Pays Off When You Study Well

I always remind my nieces and nephews to make good in their studies as it will bring them to many places. Their parents also are working hard so that they can study in a private schools and that they should not waste this precious opportunity.

Though they may have heard lots of advices from their parents about studying and all, I just wish they can squeeze in their minds all the beautiful advices that they are giving because it is for their own good. Some are in college while others are in their elementary grades. I wish they will be like my cousins as well who are engineering and architecture graduates. One has even mastered cad drawing and is very useful in his works. I wish all students will have the enthusiasm to work hard, if not they are just wasting their time.

We'll Never Know

My family and I went to the wake of my second cousin last night and we are all stunned to hear about his death because it was really unexpected as he has no lingering illness whatsoever. He was just invited to attend a fiesta in a province by his co-workers and after having lunch, his friends saw him in deep breath and would not respond so they immediately took him at the hospital.

He was later on diagnosed suffered a heart attack where a never going to his brain erupted. Awww such a deadly disease and traitor because we never know when the attack will happen. It's a deep loss for his family because he recently loss his daughter too and now he is gone as well. His wife is in overseas and we think that she will not make it to the funeral of her husband. Such a pain!

Now, all of us are thinking about our own health and I was laughing because my older brothe rasked me this morning to check on his blood pressure. I even teased him that he already needs to cheap health insurance for himself. Anyway, life is too short.. really..

Let The Kids Play Outside

my niece and nephews playing outside with water during a hot summer day

When we were kids, my sister and I would usually play chinese garter, piko, paper dolls, bahay-bahayan and more. You'd also see us often especially during summer vacations at the tree top where we make a makeshift "house" where we can stay to have a chat or even have a snack.

A day at the grass field where we can run and play . Wow I can still picture those beautiful days in my mind and oh boy we were so carefree and happy that time.

These days, you can see most of the kids just playing computer games, dress up games for girls, playstations, wii and other non-physical games. Though it can help stimulate their minds, it's also important for them to have physical activities. Let them play in your backyard, get dirty and explore new things that they can't normally encounter in front of the computer. In this way, they can discover new things, be active and learn to appreciate what it is like to play outside.

What about you what's your fave games when you where kids?

Overeating = Dyspepsia

I woke up very late this morning at around 930 am because I stayed up very late till 4am from working online. Had my breakfast at 10 am and lunch at 1 pm. Still feeling groggy and my body out of synch, I decided to take a short nap after lunch. I was able to take a dose of sleep for about 30 mins. eventhough I was hoping I can take about even an hour.

That short nap was still good because I feel kinda refreshed and my mind working as well. I had snack at about 3pm eating spaghetti, a chocolate cracker and a bottle of coke. Yay, I was so full by then and I think I had dyspepsia afterwards. It’s really hard when I had this especially when I ate too much. I better get those ellipticals in the house so that I can shed those extra fats in my belly right now. Gees.. I am feeling bloated up to now, blame it on my overeating.

Increase Your Prospective Clients

Don’t you just hate sometimes when someone knocks on your door only to find out that it is a sales agent of products and other services? Though it may seem bad to shoo them away, you need to do it especially if you’re not interested. These days, insurance companies don’t have to knock on doors anymore as they obtain most of their prospects or clients through a life insurance lead on the Internet who are searching for insurances.

I Can Hold A Grudge

Sad to say but I do hold a grudge at times especially if a person who commits a serious fault to me. I know it's not a good thing to do but that's just me!

I took this Do You Hold a Grudge? quiz and here is the result: You Sometimes Hold a Grudge

You aren’t exactly vengeful, but you’re not going to forget when someone wrongs you. And while you’ll forgive the small things, you don’t hand out too many second chances to people who really screw up.

Happy Birthday Ruth!

I just learned from my bestfriend RACE yesterday that her daughter and my Godchild Ruth is celebrating her birthday today and she's 12 years already. Time surely flies so fast and now she's almost a teen and she needs to be guarded from would be

I am wishing her all the love, happiness and success in the world. I know her parents love her so much. I wish I can give her a lavish gift today like a tour in Hongkong Disneyland or Sea World in Florida and for sure it'll be fun to stay in one of those orlando hotels but i can't afford that right now. Maybe if I'll win the big jackpot in lotto then I'll treat her and her family.

Vacation in my Mind

Oh wow, it’s already past midnight but I’m still wide away. I had a late dinner at 9:30 pm and ate my fruit salad dessert at around 11pm. Maybe that’s the reason why I am not sleepy yet. I also had time to watch shows on TV and i took advantage of it because it is seldom this late, except for the days where i need to finish important works.

I could be in deep slumber now but here I am still looking for cheapest flights to Hongkong and I am scouring for their packages. It’ll be holiday in no time and I know most of us are on vacation. It’ll be very easy to find cheap flightsat their website as they have an easy to use search box where you can input your flight details to get the best deal.

If you are contemplating of having a vacation anywhere in the world, start by reading travel info to gain more insights about the places that you want to explore.

The Weekend That Was

How are you all today? Yesterday I am the cook and had fun doing it. I didn’t go out shopping as well but just accompanied my niece to a couturier and after that I had the laziest afternoon and evening afterwards. It’s weekend so I have the right to laze around like most of you do, right? I was hoping that I could do a bit cleaning in the house but I started to watch TV and I was unstoppable.

It's a brand new week today, it’s gloomy and raining today but I sure hope that will not dampen my enthusiasm for having a great and productive day. I know it’ll be another busy week for me with all my online and offline works. I still have to look into those bathrooms fixture that I saw at and I’ve been thinking that it’ll be a perfect place to get idea and purchase items needed for the bathroom renovation that I’ve been thinking for a while now. I sure hope there will come a time where I can see a new bathroom and living room in our house. I was watching all those reality shows where they head over to a house to clean it and do a great make over. It’s always in my mind that it’ll be an awesome opportunity to be in those kind of shows.

Friday Frustrations: Nobody Wants to Admit...

ConversationsWithMoms:Every day Conversations with a Mom Blog

I came across this weekly blog carnival to share some of our frustrations and thought I'd share mine so I can get it off my chest.

I know I have posted this on my other blog but hey I want talk about this again and again :(. Like I once said I have a missing blouse and a swarovski bracelet and nobody among my family and relatives will ever admit that they got it maybe for fear that I will be furiously mad. But hey come on those things will not come out of my room w/o  no one borrowing it.

Yesterday, I also found out that my plastic water container was broken and of course no one wants to admit that they accidentally dropped it. Yay!

Anyway.. I still can replace all of them but the thing is that we should sometimes learn to accept faults, right?

Paying The Bills

Oopsies.. the bills have come once again and it’s almost deadline. I am glad that I was able to pay our bills on time except for one water bill that I have to ask my mom to pay it for me on Monday or else they will cut the service and fined us for that. It’s always good when we can pay on time but there are times when money is not readily available.

There are times when emergency expenses will arise and of course we need to shell out money leaving our budgets broken. I can’t blame those people getting a cash advance or even payday loans to make both ends meet. Others might turn to pawning any of their jewelry in order for them to get even a little money. Despite the fact that we occasionally run out of money, we should not always forget that without us knowing money will just come as a blessing.

It's Time for a Change

I guess, you noticed my new template here. As much as I wanted to retain the old one,  I have to replace it already because there are functions that are not working, like not wrapping the text when a photo is put on the left or right side.

I've been browsing online the whole afternoon trying to look for a template that I will like and good enough I found one. Though this template won't show my other posts tags but it's good enough. Below is the screenshot of my old template.

What's Your Marketing Strategies?

There are literally hundreds or even thousands of products being marketed yearly and there’s no doubt that there’ll be great competition. As business owners you’ve got to have a marketing strategy to make your product or services stand out. I own a very small business so I know gimmicks, promos or discounts are really needed in order to make your customers come back for more. Aside from that your service or your product must be competitive as well bec. once your clients or customers already tested your product and if they found out it is not of quality, some may not patronage it anymore.

If you’re still a budding entrepreneur and with a little know how on how to promote your products there are many ways that you can do. You can use flyers, billboards, commercials, print ads and many more marketing strategies., a marketing company can greatly help you with all of your undertakings as well. These professionals will see to it that you can generate sales and increase your profits. They have other services that you will find helpful, just inquire and I am sure they are willing to help you. Work hard, stand among the rest and increase your profits.

When Life Just Gives You Heartaches

I was listening to the radio one morning and when I turned the dial into a new channel, my attention was caught by a guy talking to his girlfriend live.

It turned out that he is telling a secret that he's been keeping for so many years and with millions of listeners on radio he managed to tell her live in partner that he can't  bear a child simply because he is impotent since the results says it. Wow that hurts, the girl was so shocked to hear that and she didn't even know that it was being broadcast live on the radio.

The girl can't see the reason why he hids that for 9 long years and the guy was so apologetic and doesn't want her to leave him after knowing that. I guess if they really love each other they will stick together but their situation is very complicated. Yay life really is so cruel at times but that's what life really is

My Very 1st CC

The phone rings and someone from my bank was looking for me. I got a bit curious and I thought that someone might be withdrawing money from my account. I only got appeased when the bank employee told me that it was not about that and my account is safe. She is actually telling me that they will be sending my credit card already. I said credit card? I told her that I did not apply for one and they will still be sending me a CC because they told me that I handle my finances or savings very well at their bank. What a nice compliment and or I was thinking it was just one of their marketing tactics.

Anyway, she told me I got the privilege of having CC eventhough I didn’t apply and that they will not be asking for any income tax or other supporting papers unlike what they’ve been asking on some applicants. Oh that’s great, I blurted out and one makes it even more interesting is that they already waived the 1st year of my membership.

My credit card arrived last week as promised and I was excited because it was my very 1st time to have one. I hope I can use it only when I needed it or else a debt collection agent will take legal action and will be calling me endless and I would hate that. Maybe, the safest is that I will not use my credit card bec. I am not use to having credits at all.

Baby Bedding Sets

Hi there mommies or mommies to be! I know you are always excited to buy things for your babies and always want the best for them. Babies are little gifts from heaven; they are so precious and fragile that utmost care should be given to them. It is always best to use non-hypoallergenic products on them like soaps and shampoos. Manufacturers are tying their best to come up with products suited for babies’ sensitive skins because parents most especially moms are so meticulous about that. Mommies should see to it that you read labels if they are suited for you babies.

Aside from that, mommies would also make sure that their babies will only use pure cotton on their cloths to avoid rashes that can harm their skin. Also the frequent changing of diapers or beddings is a must. I found these baby bedding sets that is perfect for babies as it is made of soft and 100% cotton. It’s a 12 piece baby crib bedding sets that can complete any nursery. The set includes a quilt, window valances, fitted sheet, a skirt, bumper, and deco pillows, just to name a few.You can find lots of colors and designs at, price starts at $59.98.

Friday Fill-Ins

Wow it's Friday once again and geezzz days are coming each day so fast.

1. When will the suffering and war will end?
2. Reporter's Notebook was the last good book I read or movie I saw or tv show I watched.
3. Everything has its beauty but physical beauty will always fade.
4. Ground pork with potatoes is what I had for dinner.
5. I'd like your _____.
6. Finishing an  opp is where I want to be right now.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to watch my fave TV show, tomorrow my plans include going to a couturier and Sunday, I want to cook a delightful seafood lunch for my family!

Attending To Your Child's School Needs

School time is the busiest days for many students and parent would always wish they will do well in their studies. Most parents will do anything to teach their kids especially those in the primary levels with their assignments and projects in school. Nothing can beat the real guidance that parents can give their kids when it comes to studying. There maybe times that parents will not have all the answers to all the questions but the mere fact that they see to it they are assisting them in doing their homeworks are enough to make their child feel loved too.

Aside from that, parents should provide their children with school supplies needed. Some parents may not have all the time to go out and buy at the mall but online stores like can be a great place to shop. You can purchase anytime at the comforts of your homes saving you time as well. They offer quality school backpacks that you can purchase and with the wide array of designs and styles (plus colors), I know you’ll have something that you can like. They have different bakpack brands from manufactures such as Jet bags, Wak Sak, and Head and they are known for quality and durability.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

These days more government, non governmental organization and common people are trying their best to promote eco-friendly products and ways to minimize out waste. I have seen lots of store that is also implementing the use of reusable bags when they go shopping or in the grocery but it seems it has low turnout about this here in our side of the world.

I would have not thought that a company like Prime Electronic Components have teamed up with largest recyclers. They are buying used equipments, surplus electronic components and other scraps from offices or companies and they will find a way to have is check and sell them to other users at a much lower price. They are now selling hard drives, memory cards, computers, wireless networking, refurbished avaya definity phone system and lots more. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: these are rules that this company is following and I think we should also follow.

Food Friday: Baked Spareribs in Honey Sauce

PROJECT 365: Baked Spareribs in Honey sauce Image Hosted by

I always crave for this recipe after my sis Joy cooked this at their house one time. To satisy my cravins, I gave money to my sister in law and asked her to cook this for our Sunday lunch and oh boy we are stuffed.

I have posted the recipe HERE. Try this bec. it is delicious!

For The Love of Food

Wow, I just had a late snack and now I am fully stuffed. I had spaghetti and coke and this combination is already a heavy meal. I even told my mom not to cook dinner for me anymore because I don’t think I can still eat and that only shows how stuff I am right now. I have had one of these days when I somewhat over eat that often results in dyspepsia. Too bad my stomach is not big enough to accommodate lots of food.

I wish I am like my online friend Tere who enjoys dining out with her husband. She said that they eat as often as they can when their budget allows them to try out new foods and new restaurants. They are really food adventurers dining from one resto to another in buffet style. I got to chat to her one time and she lets me know how much she loves pizza and baby back ribs, which I love too! Ahhh… for sure they will be thrilled to eat and dine at restaurants in San Diego with ocean view for they have Italian cuisine as well. I know they can eat heartily and as long as they desire.

Reminder to Myself

Got if from here

Just love this quote that I stumbled upon and something to reflect on.

Sometimes when things so gloomy there will always be a ray of sunshine that will come upon as. I sometimes tend to forget how lucky I am to have a life that I have and there are much more people who are suffering than me.

Our Crowning Glory

I went to the salon last Sunday for a much needed haircut. My hair has grown so long for the past 3 months and now is the time to have it cut. Although I have a thick, sadly to say coarse and almost dry hair my hair dresser pointed out that my hair is already thinning. I told him that maybe because it is due to my hair coloring every 4 months but he said maybe due to stress. He advised me to change the parting of my hair so it will not be too visible.

I am somewhat bothered by it but I am not that scared unlike men who are so prone in balding. Hair is our crowning glory and I will not wonder anymore why my older brother is still hiding his bald spots which look a bit nasty. If only we have the resource to access a doctor that can restore his hair. For those that can afford they can choose to subject themselves to hair transplant or any hair restoration that works performed by certified doctors like Dr. Piston. Anyway, balding runs in our family so I reckon my older brother will have to accept that his hair will be gone soon.

I Got Disoriented

Oh dear....... I went to sleep at 11:30 pm last night after watching a bit of  television and small browsing online. I set up my cellphone on alarm at about 2:50 am this morning hoping to get lots of opps online. The alarm went one and I immediately woke up and the 1st thing that I did was to open my laptop which is on my bedside.

Still half awake, I forced my self to go to our sala dining area where I can comfortably use my laptop. There I tweeted and my online friends are also We waited for the big opp to come but it's already 5 am and it seems it is not coming so I decided to go back to sleep because my eyes are shutting down.

I woke up at 10 am and opened the TV to watch the last mass for our former Pres. Cory Aquino who will be laid to rest today. I was crying for most part of the mass especially when Kris had her time to speak. I went to the shop at almost 1 pm and had my lunch.

Soon after that, I feel like disorientated, not knowing what to do bec. I don't know what I want. Like what I have tweeted, I said. " I want to blog but I am too lazy to do it, I want to eat but I don't have something to eat. I want to sleep but I can't." My eyes are hurting bec. I cried while watching the mass for Tita Cory.

Finally my senses got back when I had my snack, just a simple cracker and an ice cold Coke. Phew..... I hate to sleep late and then wake up early. That I said I don't want to do it again.. Yey, I am blogging now.. LOL

Planning a Halloween Party

Just one of the events that most kids and their parents await each year aside from Christmas is Halloween. For excited parents, dressing up their kids or even babies with a cute Halloween costume such as a bear, dog, fairy and some silly ones will make them delighted and proud. I once witness such when my nieces and nephews (they were still kids back then), when their parents would encourage them to take part on trick or treating at the mall and to attend Halloween parties.

Most Halloween parties started out planning an event. We were always tickled pink when someone hand us out a Halloween Invitation for we know we are special bec. we are invited. Gathering kids, parents and other guests can’t be done without Halloween Party Invitations to be sent out.

What is your Life Path Number?

I got curious with this question when Suzanne, tweeted this so I went ahead and took this very simple quiz and here is the result when I entered my birthday. I am not sure if I can agree with some points there hehe.

Your Life Path Number is 5

Your purpose in life is to life freely and collect experiences. You love life - new adventures, new people, new ideas.You are very curious, and you crave novelty in all forms.You tend to make friends easily, and you enjoy the company of all types of people.
In love, you are fun and even a bit intoxicating. But you won't stick around for long. You are impulsive and spontaneous - which sometimes leads you to do things you regret.
Sometimes you can be overindulgent with food, sex, or drugs. You have many talents, so many that you are often scattered and unfocused.

I Stopped Buying Processed Meat and Canned Goods

Lately, mom and I have been monitoring the things that we eat. Mom is already 76 years old while I am in my early 40's and since mom has a history of high blood and high cholesterol, she's been taking up maintenance medication. I already stop buying processed meat and canned goods although sometimes we can't avoid eating them. We also put vegetables on our diet like salad especially if we are eating fried fish or pork.

Although our diet is not perfect but at least we are doing our best to cut down on too much processed foods that experts say can cause cancers and other illnesses. Thank God we are still in the peak of our health especially my mom. We are also lucky that we are not obese in terms of body figure. My heart goes to those that are struggling with their weight that they still need to take Solo Slim and other means just to have a comfortable body.

Anyway, I hope my mom and I can continue eating healthy eventhough it is tempting to eat those fatty foods.

I'm On A Roll

Oh boy.. I'm on a roll today and that is so good because I have accomplished a lot of things. Just this morning before lunch time, I started to blog since I want to finish all my tasks that I had left last weekend. I was able to posts on my multiple blogs then after and up until now I am still blogging and it seems that my ideas are flowing endlessly. Thank God for that.

Right now, I have no more back logs on most of my online tasks and I am ready to get more this week. I am praying that I will be lucky again just like last month. It doesn't happen all the time so I need to strike while the iron is hot.

I hope I can still blog tonight, hoping to get online tasks while I am at home and if not, I still have more time to watch any late night show.

My sister in law is so happy to see her orchids blooming already. She's got this violet color and she's got the peach one too with a different variety. I am not a fan of flower photography but this one took my attention so I took a snap of it cuz it looks so healthy. Just today my SIL took some of the flowers and put it in her mini-altar.

Printable Christmas Invitations

Wow, it’s August already and before we knew it it’ll be Christmas once again. Are you getting excited? I am! What makes it more exciting is that I’ll be receiving Christmas Party Invitations from friends and family again. A friend also thought of organizing a Christmas party for our friends so I’ll be helping her organize it for she knew I can find nice Printable Christmas Invitations. In fact, I already saw lots of unique Christmas Invitation at

Holiday Invitations offers free shipping as well and FREE Christmas Invitations if you're goin to order a lot. I know we’ll not have a hard time looking for invites now. We are also thinking of putting a photo on the invites and it’s perfect bec. Holiday Invitations allows it.

Things That Needs To Be Done

Wow it's August already today and in the blink of an eye without us knowing it will be Christmas once again. I don't know 'bout you but I am excited over it this early. There are many things that will happen in December and with God's grace, I hope that all of our plans will push through.

In the meantime, I will just focus on the present things that I want to be done. Slowly I am accomplishing little things like having my crosstitch work framed, bought a pillow for my computer chair and others. I also want to go to my dentist and I am really planning to go to the salon tomorrow for a much needed haircut. Our leaking bathroom faucets need to be address too. I wonder why I am putting it off lately. Anyways, it's weekend once again so for sure I will not neglect it already. Ahhh I have tons of things to do on my list but these are the immediate ones that I hope will be done asap.

Last year I was able to take photos of some street entertainers in Sydney (near Circular Quey) providing entertainment when you give them coins. They will just stand there for hours and will only move once you put coins in their cans.

Former Pres. Cory Aquino Dies of Cardio Respiratory Arrest at 76

I opened the TV about few minutes ago to watch a Saturday morning show only to read the headlines that Former Pres. Cory Aquino Dies of Cardio Respiratory Arrest at 76 this morning of August 1. I jumped into my bed and I wanted to relay that news to my mom but she already is watching the special coverage on TV.

The whole Phils. will be mourning for her. A great woman with good soul and spirit has left us. May she rest in peace.!
