Series of Events

Last Wednesday, I was included as one among the delegates (including our Mayor) to the Presidential Citation Awarding for the streamlining of mayor’s permit in support to the Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises at SM Megamall Trade hall 3 wherein Her Excellency Gloria Arroyo will hand over the plaques. I was very lucky to see for the first time the President of the Philippines. It was my first experience and opportunity ever to personally see a President of a country in a 10 meter range! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to capture a picture of her because she was surrounded by security and my cam was borrowed to our cameraman. Tsk tsk... have nothing to show as evidence. I got only this pix after having lunch at Kamayan as Mayor’s treat/ remuneration for the job well done.. Sobrang busog, eat all you can.. And I ate everything.. hehehe


Last Saturday, we headed to a kids salon for Lance haircut. And I’m happy to announce that he no longer cried in the process! As in no extra movements, he sat still. Yehey! Here is his picture with the new do:

Next, hubby and I went to Robinsons to see the Ice Age 3, Dawn of the Dinosaurs movie with Lance and his cousins. Ice Age movies are Lance’ favourite. We were anxious if he won’t cry and be afraid inside the cinema. Initially, we asked permission from the admission counter to go inside the cinema first for trial before buying tickets. Then after couple of minutes hubby went out the cinema and reported that Lance was not frightened inside; however, there was nothing playing in the widescreen and some lights were turned on. Eventually, we decided to pursue the movie, we’ll just go out if he cried - we thought. We are just in time for the showing time. Then the lights were turned off, Lance was quiet and staring at the big screen until the movie begun. I observed him and he was attentively watching the movie! At times he will utter “Mammoth!”, “Manny! (Mammoth’s Name); there were instances of shock when Rudy the white dinosaur and Dino Momma will appear and roar. Despite of that, we did not hear Lance crying or see him frown. Yehey! Another milestone! He enjoyed the movie! At last, we did not spend for nothing! Hubby and I are so happy! We had a meal at Jollibee after watching as usual... We got home fulfilled and proud of our baby.. It’s worth spending for... well done my son.. :-) Love you.. mwuah!

~ Parenting Style ~

1. Do you exercise full or minimal control over your child’s / children’s behavior?
>> Lance is one year and 9 months old baby. Control is not strictly imposed on him yet. But hubby and I are sharing the control over Lance. But I think I exercise control most of the time. Because hubby is very busy at work.

2. Do you expect your child / children to obey 100% or let her / him / them do what pleases her / him / them?
>> No, I don’t expect my child to be obedient 100% but I won’t allow him to do all what pleases him, he must learn how to control himself.

3. Do you welcome discussion or you simply set rules?
>> I prefer a discussion to be fair and just.

4. Do you reprimand?
>> I haven’t experience this yet with my baby but with hubby – definitely! Lol!

5. Do you use spanking for punishment?
>> I tried to spank Lance once but he still doesn’t know it.

6. Do you use some kind of a reward System for motivation?
>> Definitely.

7. Do you enjoy being a Parent?
>> A lot but difficult at times. It takes a lot of sacrifices too.

8. Are you a hands-on Parent or do you have a full-time Nanny?
>> At present, my MIL takes care of Lance while we are at work. We employed a nanny 3 times this year and all of them resigned 1-3 days after hiring. :-( But if we are financially capable, I would like to resign from work and be a housewife.

9. At what age would you let your child make simple decisions for himself / herself?
>> I guess Lance already makes simple decision when he had been aware of his surroundings and developed his senses. Like knowing and choosing what he wants to eat, that simple.

>> Not really though there are some things alike.

~ Wife Style ~


7. How long have you been married?
>> We got married December 2005, so, it’s been 3 and half years.

Wisdom no more

Yesterday, I went to my cousin dentist and requested to extract my wisdom tooth. Extracting wisdom teeth is a difficult task according to my cousin. Maybe because it could lead to dental surgery, and probably due it’s positioning. Luckily, the procedure was successful, though, the tooth wouldn’t move at first. After several pushing, it eventually pulled his way out. Then I saw the wisdom tooth and it’s quite big! I took my tooth home for souvenir. I brushed my tooth first because it’s bloody and removed some of my flesh (yaiks! Hehe) See the photos..

above: you can see the scratches of the pushing and pulling before extraction.. hehehe

Kuliti, Kuliti sanay sa masikip

Last week, we had to see an ophthalmologist to check Lance’ left eye. It’s been more than a month since we noticed that Lance L-eye is swelling and according to my MIL it’s a kuliti. Sorry don’t know the English term of that. Lance was already medicated with antibiotics last two weeks ago but still the eyes won’t subside. Until my hubby’s cousin doctor saw Lance eyes and recommended to have it checked by an opthal already. The opthal prescribed us eye drops and erythromycin eye cream, and advised to administer warm compress on his L-eye. My MIL and I laughed when he said the latter because all the while we thought it’s not good because eyes are delicate/ sensitive. As per the opthal, kuliti is caused by bacteria usually when Lance would rub his eyes with his hands dirty, or possibly landed on his eyelashes. Fortunately, Lance’ left eye is getting better, and he regains the handsome and cute baby face. Here is his photo with his bulged eyelid

Cute still huh?!

My Brand New Laptop

Oh boy! I already have one and its brand new! This makes one of my wishes come true. Now I can post blog more often (I hope) hehehe... This is just a 2 weeks old baby and it came from Dubai. My brother bought it and I hope he will give it to me for free as a gift hehehe love you bro! The features are really amazing (or am I the only one amazed because I’m not used to this thingy.. hehehe)

It’s a Dell Inspiron 1420. It has built-in camera, microphone, bluetooth, 8-in-1 memory card reader, headphone connector, media control buttons, wifi, dvd-rw, TV-out connector, 200GB media card, 2GB RAM, 200GB HDD and the monitor resolution is really clear. Whew! I am really proud huh?! Hehehe just excited and thrilled to eventually own this. I just hope it will last a lifetime and will not be damaged because of using it as a game boy/ PSP. We installed games last week; hubby and I are into it. We haven’t bought a mouse/ joystick yet including a smart bro/ globe broadband for internet connection. Here are some pics of Dell:

I borrowed my friend's Smart Bro for testing :)

Promotion cum Demotion

Apparently, I'm a dormant blogger in the past weeks. Well, there were changes in the organizational set up of our office. My Supervisor was transferred to another office and was delegated to a new full-time job task. Well, I guess when you're working in a government office personnel movement is quite flexible and unpredictable (permanent positions are not exempted). With that, I am currently appointed as the OIC in our office.

You might congratulate me for this but ironically I was promoted but the corresponding salary did not follow (I'm actually expecting that!). You really don't have a choice - you probably think it doesn't make any sense because we all have our own right to say "No, thanks!" or "Yes, can you increase my salary?". I was not consulted about this. Initially, my Supervisor informed me regarding the "OIC" then I just received my memo of appointment. Well, I guess my silence was interpreted as "Yes, I am accepting it." huhuhu

This was not the first time I was confronted with this kind of situation. 4 years ago (if am not mistaken), my previous Supervisor was also transferred to another office and it was rumored that I will be the acting head because I'm next in rank. Actually in the structure there is still one position level/ salary higher than mine but these personnel are detailed in another office so I was left being next in rank. I was doing their job while they receive the higher pay!!!! Sorry but I can't help to express my grievance. As soon as I knew about me being appointed as the OIC, I immediately e-mailed our then city administrator, who is also our department head, and expressed my sentiments of not wanting that position because of lack of skills. I received a reply saying that my concerns will be considered and referred to the Human Resource Office. As a result, my Supervisor then concurrently managed two divisions but he resides and performing tasks basically in the other office. So, I was tasked to be in-charge of the office, signs some documents in behalf of my supervisor, attends meetings among others - indirectly, it's just the same - am I right? Yet, I'm only receiving a salary grade of 11 (up to present!).

At present, I am facing this big responsibility and would like to try it for the meantime. But most of the time, I doubt if I can really manage the office with three staffs depending on me. Honestly, I am overwhelmed and very thankful for the trust the administration is giving me. However, deep inside me, there is resistance on accepting this. Why? Here are the reasons (in no particular order):

- I am not confident

- I lack managerial skills i.e. planning, sound decision-making, conducting staff meetings, participating management meetings

- I am not a good speaker

- I’m quite slow thinker and stuttered when pressured and in front of people

- I do not ultimately know the mandate of our office because it is not yet established (it’s supposed to be performing internal audit services)

- I don’t look professional

- I am not happy

- I am not that committed (sama ko ba?)

- I’m quite lazy (sama ko talaga?!)

- I have inferiority complex being with the managers and supervisors (or I think of myself as inferior)

- I don’t have the absolute courage

- I have low stress tolerance

- I am detailed-oriented which causes delay at times

Am I stupid or what? I was given this opportunity yet I am hesitant to grab it or should I say I already grabbed it but thinking of dropping it off. Crazy enough?! Bo Sanches’s book “Simplify Life” reads… We give 60% of our waking time to our jobs. If we’re unhappy with our jobs, that makes us unhappy 60% of our lives! To simplify our lives, we need to find what we love doing and get paid for it. We need to find out what our passion is and connect it with our jobs.

I know that all of my reasons are psychological (am I right?). Maybe I just don’t realize and recognize my strengths and capabilities because some people can’t believe that I am not confident about myself. It’s just that the nature of our work requires a competent, tough and independent leader. Am I qualified to the position with this kind of attitude? I know you may simply answer “Change the attitude!” but it’s really not easy struggling with your own self. Consistency is another thing. You may ask what is it that you love or wanted to do – I love being at home serving my family and putting up a bakery shop, if possible. I thought of submitting my resignation but due to financial crisis/constraints it gives me no choice to stay and face the reality which makes me upset. I just hope I could overcome this attitude and have the ultimate courage to move on.

Bonding Time with Typhoon Emong!

Yesterday in the midst of the Typhoon Emong, me, hubby and my friendships struggled to meet up at Zapata's Cantina Mexicana along Fields Avenue in Angeles City. I even crossed the flooded road of the Astro Park just to be with my friends! Even my friend - Yhang, who is 6-months pregnant, took the courage to go out the house. It was raining hard; there were flooded roads and streets, and there was really poor visibility. Despite of all that storm events, we have landed safely in Mexican Resto and got to spend quality time (even it's short) with my friends.. Well, that's what friendship meant.. It was worth the effort because we really had fun and had tried Mexican dishes.. It was our first time to go to that place and you will really feel you're in Mexico! hehehe.. Take a look of our pics..

(R-L) hubby, me, Jorrel, Grace, Yhang

Luckily, the rain had stopped on our way home and it seemed that Emong left already. What an adventurous get together with the typhoon...

Hospitalized..

A post blessed Lenten Season Greetings to all!

Oh Well, Mr. G finally confiscated my PR 2 and gave back the magic “0”. At least, he gave me a taste of it. -_-

I’ve been inactive for a couple of weeks because my baby got sick. I have mentioned here that my baby acquired colds and coughs due to bad weather and we visited Lance pedia last March 30 (Monday). Unfortunately, my baby was admitted in the hospital last April’s fools’ day (Wednesday) at 8pm. On that same day, my hubby, who is on leave to help in the preparation for our town fiesta – April 3, together with my MIL decided to visit my baby’s pedia because Lance sickness seems to get worse considering we just had his check up 2 days ago. Lance does not want to eat any food, not even his milk; he only wants to drink water the whole day and needs to drink a lot of medicines. Plus my baby vomits about 3-4 times a day which is painful to see. Whenever he tries to eat something, my baby would throw up after a few minutes. My poor baby! Not to mention the difficulty in giving Lance his oral medicines this adds more stress on him. That’s why our pedia recommended confining my baby in the hospital. At first, I was hesitant to admit Lance in the hospital because he might have traumatic experience undergoing it. Then, I asked my pedia what medications would differ if I will admit my baby and she told me that antibiotics will be injected thru the dextrose which is faster and more effective in the healing process also, to prevent my baby from dehydration. So, hubby and I finally decided to admit Lance in the hospital.

After admission, we headed at the ER for the usual medical procedures. My baby started to cry when the nurse tied his right hand with a rubber in order to inject the needle for the dextrose. Lance cried out loud the whole procedure. We cannot stop him from crying and all he uttered was “Mama, Mama!” I know he is asking for help. Then, the nurse proceeded on the skin test for the antibiotics to know if Lance has an allergy/ reaction to the antibiotics. This procedure made Lance angrier and cried out lout painfully. At this point, I can’t help but to cry; feeling guilty and sorry that he has to undergo that. Afterwards, we proceeded to the Imaging Department for an X-ray exam and finally to our room. It took us until 11pm to stop Lance from crying. He fell asleep crying. What made it difficult for us is that whenever somebody will open the door especially a nurse he would be awake crying. Maybe he thinks that they would do the same thing again. Pity Lance… And he has sacrificed in our 4 day confinement at hospital. After his confinement, my baby seems to be scared of people strange to him which is not usual on him before..

The diagnosis on his sickness is Pneumonia on both of Lance lungs. Until now, I am still wondering on the cause of this sickness. I felt that I am a bad mother because I do not take care very well of my baby. I thought I did until that happened. Last Friday, my baby started to have clogged nose again!!!! What is this stupid cold that keeps coming back! I did everything I can to protect him but still this happens. I’m thinking he might have allergy like on dust or in cats – our cat stays inside the house? It’s possible because Lance immune system is suppressed at present. Lance have schedule for Flu Vaccine this month but due to his health condition we need to defer it until next month when Lance is fully recovered. Urgh!

For friends and relatives who visited and gave us support – Thank You Very Much!

Anyways, I’ll be leaving you in awhile because I’ll be helping my friend Sarah to settle thing s up with her previous loans and somehow apply at Personalcashadvance.com for a more affordable rates monthly.

Bad Weather!

I had to had a day off at work yesterday because my baby is sick again. Lance has cough, colds and sore eyes... Tsk tsk poor baby. He has difficulty breathing and even seeing. Whenever he wakes up, he could not open his eyes wide we need to wipe them with wet clothing. That's why I decided to visit our pedia yesterday. When we arriveed at the clinic there were many children patients. And most of them have coughs and colds. I guess babies and children are getting sick because of the super hooooot weather!!! Even adults are getting sick. Urgh! I hate the weather! The medicines and PF cost more than a thousand pesos! Hope everybody get well soon..

Auto Insurance

I have mentioned that my aunt Wila purchased a brand new car. Well, having a brand new vehicle it needs to be insured. Immediately after the purchase, my uncle insisted to have/ avail of the auto insurance online in order to be secure. He was worried that my aunt Wila might crash the vehicle. Hahaha! At first, my aunt Wila resist the idea of having insurance because it would entail another expense. But my uncle is firm on having it he justifies that the insurance offered has low premium payments and the important thing is security. He would be peaceful if he would avail of the insurance.

My uncle searched and studied very well the insurance offered and he is confident that he makes the right decision. With that, my aunt Wila can no longer say anything but to accept the matter. I guess my uncle is right in doing that. I bet they have all the means in paying the premiums. It is better to pay a little extra for a secured security. Hehe.. At least, they won’t worry if something will happen to the vehicle even it’s brand new. Hmmm.. I bet my aunt would have more courage to break the rules.. Hahaha My uncle will be having lots of headache by then. Hahaha. I had quite a laugh..

Debt Consolidation

I am quite unhappy with the situation my cousin, Greg, is into. He is burdened with debts! He is an extravagant spender brat. He has debts in all his credit cards and he could no longer manage them. My cousin, who is in US, called me up last Friday night and confided that he is in trouble with his credit cards and do not know what to do. He mentioned that he was awake in his long sleep of denial that he is becoming out of control spending. He called me up because he does not want to let his family know that he is in trouble.

I told him that I browsed and encountered in the internet a site that offers a bad credit debt consolidation. They help people who are in bad debt situation solve their problems. I think it is a good offer because he would not worry talking to all his creditors, and payment of interest and charges would be minimized as it will all be consolidated. At least, he would just be managing to only one creditor. I suggested that he checks the web site to know more of the details. I warned my cousin not to be hacked by the situation again. I hope he listens.

It's Time to Own a Home

Buying a house nowadays is not easy, especially with the financial crisis that the world has been bugging about a lot of factors should be considered first, like if you buy a house, will you buy it in cash or apply for home loans? If you apply for a loan can you handle its amortizations monthly? And if so, how long should you pay it?

These questions are the first major queries that a “would-be home owner” should consider first. If any of these questions are answered with doubt, it’s recommended that he should stop and prepare first before jumping in to a mortgage application. But you could always seek the help of some experts like that of Mortgagefindersnetwork.com.

Mortgagefindersnetwork.com can give you the best quote for mortgage that you can easily buy monthly. All you have to do is visit their site and have a free quote for yourself or for a friend maybe. After that you can browse on thru their offers and see what kind of loan that will fit your financial status. If you’re in chaos, you could always ask the help of their friendly customer service.

Well, you see you can never go wrong if you have the experts to help you and you’ll never know, you might be just a step away from owing your dream home today.

All About Being Sure

My friend Mike has recently acquired his first ever dream car last month. It actually took him 5 years to save it up and buy his first ever. Now, as an excited car owner he asks me what more does he needs to do than to set it up. I told him to apply for auto insurance. You see the car he acquired was pre-owned and has no existing insurance or whatsoever to cover up his probable expenses. That is why it is recommended that he apply one for it, right?

Anyways, he called me again this morning and asked me if I can help him search an insurance company that can give him the best package for his car. Luckily, my cousin May who had applied for a homeowner’s insurance told me about how great Insurancerate.com works. Insurancerate.com is a one stop insurance company that offers competitive insurance rates for different clients. They offer great packages for auto, home, health, and life even condos and renters! Yeah, you read it right, even renters can be insured!

Now, all I have to do is email him and tell him about this cool deal. I bet he’ll be excited to have his free quote after reading my mail.

Quick Car Loans

My Auntie Wila recently obtained her driver’s license. I know it’s quite late for her but as the saying goes “it’s better to late than never!”. My cousins are teasing her because she just got her driver’s license at the age of late forties. My aunt just purchased a brand new color red Nissan vehicle car through quick car loan. They decided to buy a vehicle due to necessity and practicality. It’s good to know that they did not have any difficulty financing the car. They were well-educated on the programs of auto financing and they experienced an extraordinary assistance in making their best choice. No hard time at all.

As soon as the vehicle arrived home, my aunt immediately grab her driver’s license, jumped into the vehicle and hit the road for a test drive. Thankfully she got back home with the vehicle in one piece. My uncle was quite worried because they have not yet paid the quick car loan, so the vehicle must be well taken care of.

After a week, my aunt’s family took a long drive to visit her sister, my other aunt, for a birthday party. Every morning my aunt Wila would drop my cousins at school then pick them up after school hours. My aunt is really into driving now a days..

Easy PayDay Loan

My friend Sarah is currently living in the states now. She just found her first ever job there and her employer immediately asked her to come to the states and start working with them. It has been one month since she left for the states and now she’s thinking if she can apply for a payday loan.

Yeah, being a newbie in the big city of America is not really easy, the financial and emotionally issues can really break you down. And as of this moment, Sarah is having trouble with her financials. Well, who wouldn’t be, right? Only a month at work and now one to count on plus include the effect of financial crisis in states! Urgh! You can really get crazy over there.

Good thing, people had created the World Wide Web. Why? Well, because of the internet, Sarah can talk to us and get some help! Like what I’m doing now, I’m trying to help her search a financial institution that offers a no fax payday loan where she can apply a payday loan without the need or the hassles of faxing the needed requirement or so. Plus the immediate availability of funds is strongly considered.

Luckily, Easyonlinepaydayloan.com is here to help! Now, Sarah would be thrilled to check my research, I just hope she gets approved asap! :)

Credit for Credit Cards

I got my credit card through an agent. One day, an agent, who is doing rounds, visited our office and he offered applications of various credit cards. There is HSBC, Citibank, Standard Chartered, and a lot more. Availment of credit card here in the Philippines is being marketed like that. If you would like to know personally credit card offers using internet, you would need to browse individually the sites of your preferred credit card companies - which takes time. As far as I know, there is no one stop shop facility/ internet site that offers information about credit card offers of various companies.

Unlike the experience of my cousin, Kathryn, in Los Angeles. Since she resides in a technologically advanced country, everything is convenient. She have told me that it's easy and convenient to avail bank credit card. You just need to browse in the internet, visit a single web site and can choose among various bank credit crad, in which you would know immediately their services offered. Also, you will be oriented to use credit wisely or well-manage it. Were you amazed? Well, I did! For sure, Kathryn has more reasons to shop around malls with her credit cards. haha! Just don't spend too much cousin dear.. ~wink~ :-)

Cash Advance to the Rescue!!!

Last week, I am glad to have time chit-chatting with my friend, Karen, who is living in United States, and I just knew that she is pregnant and about to give birth in a few days. Karen is my former office mate here in the Philippines. She had an opportunity to live in the United States together with her husband. It's been a while since our last chat. Then, last night Karen's husband, Ron, called me and informed me that my friend gave birth to baby boy! "At last!" he mentioned. After wards, I spoke to my friend and sounds very happy.

My friend shared with me that she and her husband fall short of cash about $1000-$1500 as payment for hospital bills. They could have had that amount until next week, which is pay day week, however, unexpectedly my friend gave birth. So, what they did is to avail the american cash advance to bridge the gap. Then when pay day comes, they will pay outright the cash advance. Good thing there are ways and means nowadays to resolve urgent cases like that. It gives you comfort to know that there would always be a support to count on - to the rescue!

Got high PR!!

Yep, am happy and proud to announce that I have gained a Page Rank of TWO (2)!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks google for this! And I added a gadget to make a show off as proof of my statement. Ahahaha.. Am just glad.. that's why I received many opps yesterday.. please tolerate me for now... Lol! Have a nice day to all!

Saturday Time-Out

Last Saturday is a black out day here in Pampanga. And the heat is killing everyone!!! That same day is Lance schedule for his vaccination. We went to his pedia and injected Lance with 5-in-one vaccine, i.e., Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis; HiB; and IPV. Then hubby, I and Lance went to the mall to feel the cool breeze air.. ehehe.. We had lunch at Jollibee as usual. Then we went to Ideal Vision to purchase new eyeglasses of hubby. The old eyeglasses were broken by my very curious baby Lance. Whenever he will be lifted by Papa, Lance will surely grab Papa’s eyeglasses and stretch it wide-open! Poor disabled eyeglasses… We also bought Lance a sunglass.

Then, we proceeded at Robinsons Appliance Center and Abenson’s to look for a washing machine. We are replacing our worn-out washing machine. We chose the LG 8.5kg Washing Machine. It’s a new model with a Power Jet Roller, this will not make clothes tangle while washing, It’s also electricity saver as it produce 280 wattage on its washer and 160 wattage on spinner whereas most of the machines were 400 and 160 wattages. We haven’t purchased the machine until now. Maybe this coming weekends..

Next, we went to Gupit Bulinggit to have Lance haircut. This salon is where Lance had his first haircut ever! My baby still cry out loud but there were instances that he stops crying because he would watch the video of Barney and friends. It’s good to have salons like that there are a lot of distractions for babies to be entertained and forget to be frightened. Lol!

What a day! The three of us were exhausted! Whew! That’s how we spent our weekends..

Purse Talk

Here is my bag and I’m glad to share the bits and pieces of it. All hail to Anney and Beth for this! Lol! :-)

The rules are as follow:

1. Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you can't go into your closet and pull out your favorite purse! We want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house.
2. List how much it cost. And this is not to judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, we'd love to hear it.
3. Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you're showing everyone your bag.

This is my office bag. It was a Christmas gift from hubby last 2 years ago; I no longer remember the exact amount but I think it costs P1,000+ that time. Inside my overused bag is my 2009 Planner (a Christmas gift of my friend/ officemate); Naraya Coin Purse (haven’t washed it since I bought it last year- yaiks! Lol!); Card Holder; Croc Leather Purse (where my powder, lip gloss, lotion, moisturizer, etc. are kept); Key Purse (I carry lots of key – office locker, house, car) Bulgari Perfurme, (a gift from my SIL when she arrived in the Philippines); Rubbing Alcohol; Mouthwash; White Flower; Sign Pen (a gift from a friend, Angel); Sanitary Napkin; Wooden Fan (newly purchased due to hot weather – ehehe); comb and roller brush. That’s all! I’ve realized I have so many things in my little baggage..

A Perfect blend of Friendship Award

Anney thanks for passing several tags and awards… I appreciated them all.

When I started to enter the blogging world last year, I only knew 3 friends who are in this world; then, I doubted my entry. At first, I was worried if people will like or accept my posts and MYSELF because I’m not a creative writer at all.

But eventually I was wrong. BeinG mYselF made me free. What you see in my blog title is what you get in me. And I’m very glad to have my online friends. You don’t get to see each other physically but you are being updated with happenings - as if you’re physically there. Miracle?! Nope, that’s what you call friendship!

I now pass this privilege to Eds, Yhang, Jhona, Vannie, Cutella, Junelle, Berryblitz, Gina, Mye, and Ka. Thank you for rocking my world!

Summer is totally IN !!!

Can you feel the heat?! Yep, it's summer time once again! And I'm thinking to have the usual swimming activity. Last year, I had one post-summer outing and it was during our lakbay aral (an office orientation-seminar) in Batangas last July. Here are some pictures...

I'm excited this year because hopefully it will be the first summer outing of my baby and I'm thinking to buy him swim wear and a "salbabida" (forgot the english version.. hehehe).. Am sure Lance will enjoy the water like enjoying it during bath time. I'm planning it on April 5 since that would be a long weekend I hope this will materialize.. (cross fingers!) I'll definitely post the pix on that day..! Until then.. :-)

Business Credit - Business Loans or Personal Loans

I was stuck with workloads these past few weeks, sorry for that guys…

Anyway, has anyone heard about Business Credit? Well if you are planning to put up your own boutique, bakeshop or refreshment parlor, www.BusinessCreditMagic.com and/ or www.EZUnsecured.com offers a good source of financing i.e., Business Loans or Personal Loans, in an instant with NO personal guarantees! Imagine that!

I knew about this through my friend, Faye, who obtained easily a Business Loan amounting to $250,000 for her Photo Gallery, which is her passion, using www.BusinessCreditMagic.com. She said that they provide the best program because they are well experienced in the field. “That is why you can trust them, no worries!” my friend mentioned that as assurance. At present, my friend is very happy to have her own gallery which is a dream come true and, thankful that she availed that opportunity and took the business risk.

I have searched and visited their website and it is really amazing that they offer such good opportunities intended for those who wanted to have a source of unsecured financing for entering the business world or for personal reasons. Not to mention the number of benefits they will obtain in using www.BusinessCreditMagic.com. So for you out there who would also like to have unsecured financing, check out www.BusinessCreditMagic.com and enroll or sign up now to get support for your new endeavor.

Series of Events

Last Wednesday, I was included as one among the delegates (including our Mayor) to the Presidential Citation Awarding for the streamlining of mayor’s permit in support to the Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises at SM Megamall Trade hall 3 wherein Her Excellency Gloria Arroyo will hand over the plaques. I was very lucky to see for the first time the President of the Philippines. It was my first experience and opportunity ever to personally see a President of a country in a 10 meter range! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to capture a picture of her because she was surrounded by security and my cam was borrowed to our cameraman. Tsk tsk... have nothing to show as evidence. I got only this pix after having lunch at Kamayan as Mayor’s treat/ remuneration for the job well done.. Sobrang busog, eat all you can.. And I ate everything.. hehehe


Last Saturday, we headed to a kids salon for Lance haircut. And I’m happy to announce that he no longer cried in the process! As in no extra movements, he sat still. Yehey! Here is his picture with the new do:

Next, hubby and I went to Robinsons to see the Ice Age 3, Dawn of the Dinosaurs movie with Lance and his cousins. Ice Age movies are Lance’ favourite. We were anxious if he won’t cry and be afraid inside the cinema. Initially, we asked permission from the admission counter to go inside the cinema first for trial before buying tickets. Then after couple of minutes hubby went out the cinema and reported that Lance was not frightened inside; however, there was nothing playing in the widescreen and some lights were turned on. Eventually, we decided to pursue the movie, we’ll just go out if he cried - we thought. We are just in time for the showing time. Then the lights were turned off, Lance was quiet and staring at the big screen until the movie begun. I observed him and he was attentively watching the movie! At times he will utter “Mammoth!”, “Manny! (Mammoth’s Name); there were instances of shock when Rudy the white dinosaur and Dino Momma will appear and roar. Despite of that, we did not hear Lance crying or see him frown. Yehey! Another milestone! He enjoyed the movie! At last, we did not spend for nothing! Hubby and I are so happy! We had a meal at Jollibee after watching as usual... We got home fulfilled and proud of our baby.. It’s worth spending for... well done my son.. :-) Love you.. mwuah!

~ Parenting Style ~

1. Do you exercise full or minimal control over your child’s / children’s behavior?
>> Lance is one year and 9 months old baby. Control is not strictly imposed on him yet. But hubby and I are sharing the control over Lance. But I think I exercise control most of the time. Because hubby is very busy at work.

2. Do you expect your child / children to obey 100% or let her / him / them do what pleases her / him / them?
>> No, I don’t expect my child to be obedient 100% but I won’t allow him to do all what pleases him, he must learn how to control himself.

3. Do you welcome discussion or you simply set rules?
>> I prefer a discussion to be fair and just.

4. Do you reprimand?
>> I haven’t experience this yet with my baby but with hubby – definitely! Lol!

>> I tried to spank Lance once but he still doesn’t know it.

6. Do you use some kind of a reward System for motivation?
>> Definitely.

7. Do you enjoy being a Parent?
>> A lot but difficult at times. It takes a lot of sacrifices too.

8. Are you a hands-on Parent or do you have a full-time Nanny?

9. At what age would you let your child make simple decisions for himself / herself?
>> I guess Lance already makes simple decision when he had been aware of his surroundings and developed his senses. Like knowing and choosing what he wants to eat, that simple.

>> Not really though there are some things alike.

~ Wife Style ~


7. How long have you been married?
>> We got married December 2005, so, it’s been 3 and half years.

Wisdom no more

  • Filed under: Health, Teeth

Yesterday, I went to my cousin dentist and requested to extract my wisdom tooth. Extracting wisdom teeth is a difficult task according to my cousin. Maybe because it could lead to dental surgery, and probably due it’s positioning. Luckily, the procedure was successful, though, the tooth wouldn’t move at first. After several pushing, it eventually pulled his way out. Then I saw the wisdom tooth and it’s quite big! I took my tooth home for souvenir. I brushed my tooth first because it’s bloody and removed some of my flesh (yaiks! Hehe) See the photos..

above: you can see the scratches of the pushing and pulling before extraction.. hehehe

Kuliti, Kuliti sanay sa masikip

Last week, we had to see an ophthalmologist to check Lance’ left eye. It’s been more than a month since we noticed that Lance L-eye is swelling and according to my MIL it’s a kuliti. Sorry don’t know the English term of that. Lance was already medicated with antibiotics last two weeks ago but still the eyes won’t subside. Until my hubby’s cousin doctor saw Lance eyes and recommended to have it checked by an opthal already. The opthal prescribed us eye drops and erythromycin eye cream, and advised to administer warm compress on his L-eye. My MIL and I laughed when he said the latter because all the while we thought it’s not good because eyes are delicate/ sensitive. As per the opthal, kuliti is caused by bacteria usually when Lance would rub his eyes with his hands dirty, or possibly landed on his eyelashes. Fortunately, Lance’ left eye is getting better, and he regains the handsome and cute baby face. Here is his photo with his bulged eyelid

Cute still huh?!

My Brand New Laptop

Oh boy! I already have one and its brand new! This makes one of my wishes come true. Now I can post blog more often (I hope) hehehe... This is just a 2 weeks old baby and it came from Dubai. My brother bought it and I hope he will give it to me for free as a gift hehehe love you bro! The features are really amazing (or am I the only one amazed because I’m not used to this thingy.. hehehe)

It’s a Dell Inspiron 1420. It has built-in camera, microphone, bluetooth, 8-in-1 memory card reader, headphone connector, media control buttons, wifi, dvd-rw, TV-out connector, 200GB media card, 2GB RAM, 200GB HDD and the monitor resolution is really clear. Whew! I am really proud huh?! Hehehe just excited and thrilled to eventually own this. I just hope it will last a lifetime and will not be damaged because of using it as a game boy/ PSP. We installed games last week; hubby and I are into it. We haven’t bought a mouse/ joystick yet including a smart bro/ globe broadband for internet connection. Here are some pics of Dell:

I borrowed my friend's Smart Bro for testing :)

Promotion cum Demotion

Apparently, I'm a dormant blogger in the past weeks. Well, there were changes in the organizational set up of our office. My Supervisor was transferred to another office and was delegated to a new full-time job task. Well, I guess when you're working in a government office personnel movement is quite flexible and unpredictable (permanent positions are not exempted). With that, I am currently appointed as the OIC in our office.

You might congratulate me for this but ironically I was promoted but the corresponding salary did not follow (I'm actually expecting that!). You really don't have a choice - you probably think it doesn't make any sense because we all have our own right to say "No, thanks!" or "Yes, can you increase my salary?". I was not consulted about this. Initially, my Supervisor informed me regarding the "OIC" then I just received my memo of appointment. Well, I guess my silence was interpreted as "Yes, I am accepting it." huhuhu

This was not the first time I was confronted with this kind of situation. 4 years ago (if am not mistaken), my previous Supervisor was also transferred to another office and it was rumored that I will be the acting head because I'm next in rank. Actually in the structure there is still one position level/ salary higher than mine but these personnel are detailed in another office so I was left being next in rank. I was doing their job while they receive the higher pay!!!! Sorry but I can't help to express my grievance. As soon as I knew about me being appointed as the OIC, I immediately e-mailed our then city administrator, who is also our department head, and expressed my sentiments of not wanting that position because of lack of skills. I received a reply saying that my concerns will be considered and referred to the Human Resource Office. As a result, my Supervisor then concurrently managed two divisions but he resides and performing tasks basically in the other office. So, I was tasked to be in-charge of the office, signs some documents in behalf of my supervisor, attends meetings among others - indirectly, it's just the same - am I right? Yet, I'm only receiving a salary grade of 11 (up to present!).

At present, I am facing this big responsibility and would like to try it for the meantime. But most of the time, I doubt if I can really manage the office with three staffs depending on me. Honestly, I am overwhelmed and very thankful for the trust the administration is giving me. However, deep inside me, there is resistance on accepting this. Why? Here are the reasons (in no particular order):

- I am not confident

- I lack managerial skills i.e. planning, sound decision-making, conducting staff meetings, participating management meetings

- I am not a good speaker

- I’m quite slow thinker and stuttered when pressured and in front of people

- I do not ultimately know the mandate of our office because it is not yet established (it’s supposed to be performing internal audit services)

- I don’t look professional

- I am not happy

- I am not that committed (sama ko ba?)

- I’m quite lazy (sama ko talaga?!)

- I have inferiority complex being with the managers and supervisors (or I think of myself as inferior)

- I don’t have the absolute courage

- I have low stress tolerance

- I am detailed-oriented which causes delay at times

Am I stupid or what? I was given this opportunity yet I am hesitant to grab it or should I say I already grabbed it but thinking of dropping it off. Crazy enough?! Bo Sanches’s book “Simplify Life” reads… We give 60% of our waking time to our jobs. If we’re unhappy with our jobs, that makes us unhappy 60% of our lives! To simplify our lives, we need to find what we love doing and get paid for it. We need to find out what our passion is and connect it with our jobs.

I know that all of my reasons are psychological (am I right?). Maybe I just don’t realize and recognize my strengths and capabilities because some people can’t believe that I am not confident about myself. It’s just that the nature of our work requires a competent, tough and independent leader. Am I qualified to the position with this kind of attitude? I know you may simply answer “Change the attitude!” but it’s really not easy struggling with your own self. Consistency is another thing. You may ask what is it that you love or wanted to do – I love being at home serving my family and putting up a bakery shop, if possible. I thought of submitting my resignation but due to financial crisis/constraints it gives me no choice to stay and face the reality which makes me upset. I just hope I could overcome this attitude and have the ultimate courage to move on.

Bonding Time with Typhoon Emong!

Yesterday in the midst of the Typhoon Emong, me, hubby and my friendships struggled to meet up at Zapata's Cantina Mexicana along Fields Avenue in Angeles City. I even crossed the flooded road of the Astro Park just to be with my friends! Even my friend - Yhang, who is 6-months pregnant, took the courage to go out the house. It was raining hard; there were flooded roads and streets, and there was really poor visibility. Despite of all that storm events, we have landed safely in Mexican Resto and got to spend quality time (even it's short) with my friends.. Well, that's what friendship meant.. It was worth the effort because we really had fun and had tried Mexican dishes.. It was our first time to go to that place and you will really feel you're in Mexico! hehehe.. Take a look of our pics..

(R-L) hubby, me, Jorrel, Grace, Yhang

Luckily, the rain had stopped on our way home and it seemed that Emong left already. What an adventurous get together with the typhoon...

Hospitalized..

A post blessed Lenten Season Greetings to all!

Oh Well, Mr. G finally confiscated my PR 2 and gave back the magic “0”. At least, he gave me a taste of it. -_-

I’ve been inactive for a couple of weeks because my baby got sick. I have mentioned here that my baby acquired colds and coughs due to bad weather and we visited Lance pedia last March 30 (Monday). Unfortunately, my baby was admitted in the hospital last April’s fools’ day (Wednesday) at 8pm. On that same day, my hubby, who is on leave to help in the preparation for our town fiesta – April 3, together with my MIL decided to visit my baby’s pedia because Lance sickness seems to get worse considering we just had his check up 2 days ago. Lance does not want to eat any food, not even his milk; he only wants to drink water the whole day and needs to drink a lot of medicines. Plus my baby vomits about 3-4 times a day which is painful to see. Whenever he tries to eat something, my baby would throw up after a few minutes. My poor baby! Not to mention the difficulty in giving Lance his oral medicines this adds more stress on him. That’s why our pedia recommended confining my baby in the hospital. At first, I was hesitant to admit Lance in the hospital because he might have traumatic experience undergoing it. Then, I asked my pedia what medications would differ if I will admit my baby and she told me that antibiotics will be injected thru the dextrose which is faster and more effective in the healing process also, to prevent my baby from dehydration. So, hubby and I finally decided to admit Lance in the hospital.

After admission, we headed at the ER for the usual medical procedures. My baby started to cry when the nurse tied his right hand with a rubber in order to inject the needle for the dextrose. Lance cried out loud the whole procedure. We cannot stop him from crying and all he uttered was “Mama, Mama!” I know he is asking for help. Then, the nurse proceeded on the skin test for the antibiotics to know if Lance has an allergy/ reaction to the antibiotics. This procedure made Lance angrier and cried out lout painfully. At this point, I can’t help but to cry; feeling guilty and sorry that he has to undergo that. Afterwards, we proceeded to the Imaging Department for an X-ray exam and finally to our room. It took us until 11pm to stop Lance from crying. He fell asleep crying. What made it difficult for us is that whenever somebody will open the door especially a nurse he would be awake crying. Maybe he thinks that they would do the same thing again. Pity Lance… And he has sacrificed in our 4 day confinement at hospital. After his confinement, my baby seems to be scared of people strange to him which is not usual on him before..

The diagnosis on his sickness is Pneumonia on both of Lance lungs. Until now, I am still wondering on the cause of this sickness. I felt that I am a bad mother because I do not take care very well of my baby. I thought I did until that happened. Last Friday, my baby started to have clogged nose again!!!! What is this stupid cold that keeps coming back! I did everything I can to protect him but still this happens. I’m thinking he might have allergy like on dust or in cats – our cat stays inside the house? It’s possible because Lance immune system is suppressed at present. Lance have schedule for Flu Vaccine this month but due to his health condition we need to defer it until next month when Lance is fully recovered. Urgh!

For friends and relatives who visited and gave us support – Thank You Very Much!

I had to had a day off at work yesterday because my baby is sick again. Lance has cough, colds and sore eyes... Tsk tsk poor baby. He has difficulty breathing and even seeing. Whenever he wakes up, he could not open his eyes wide we need to wipe them with wet clothing. That's why I decided to visit our pedia yesterday. When we arriveed at the clinic there were many children patients. And most of them have coughs and colds. I guess babies and children are getting sick because of the super hooooot weather!!! Even adults are getting sick. Urgh! I hate the weather! The medicines and PF cost more than a thousand pesos! Hope everybody get well soon..

I have mentioned that my aunt Wila purchased a brand new car. Well, having a brand new vehicle it needs to be insured. Immediately after the purchase, my uncle insisted to have/ avail of the auto insurance online in order to be secure. He was worried that my aunt Wila might crash the vehicle. Hahaha! At first, my aunt Wila resist the idea of having insurance because it would entail another expense. But my uncle is firm on having it he justifies that the insurance offered has low premium payments and the important thing is security. He would be peaceful if he would avail of the insurance.

My uncle searched and studied very well the insurance offered and he is confident that he makes the right decision. With that, my aunt Wila can no longer say anything but to accept the matter. I guess my uncle is right in doing that. I bet they have all the means in paying the premiums. It is better to pay a little extra for a secured security. Hehe.. At least, they won’t worry if something will happen to the vehicle even it’s brand new. Hmmm.. I bet my aunt would have more courage to break the rules.. Hahaha My uncle will be having lots of headache by then. Hahaha. I had quite a laugh..

Debt Consolidation

I am quite unhappy with the situation my cousin, Greg, is into. He is burdened with debts! He is an extravagant spender brat. He has debts in all his credit cards and he could no longer manage them. My cousin, who is in US, called me up last Friday night and confided that he is in trouble with his credit cards and do not know what to do. He mentioned that he was awake in his long sleep of denial that he is becoming out of control spending. He called me up because he does not want to let his family know that he is in trouble.

I told him that I browsed and encountered in the internet a site that offers a bad credit debt consolidation. They help people who are in bad debt situation solve their problems. I think it is a good offer because he would not worry talking to all his creditors, and payment of interest and charges would be minimized as it will all be consolidated. At least, he would just be managing to only one creditor. I suggested that he checks the web site to know more of the details. I warned my cousin not to be hacked by the situation again. I hope he listens.

Buying a house nowadays is not easy, especially with the financial crisis that the world has been bugging about a lot of factors should be considered first, like if you buy a house, will you buy it in cash or apply for home loans?

My friend Mike has recently acquired his first ever dream car last month. It actually took him 5 years to save it up and buy his first ever. Now, as an excited car owner he asks me what more does he needs to do than to set it up. I told him to apply for auto insurance. You see the car he acquired was pre-owned and has no existing insurance or whatsoever to cover up his probable expenses. That is why it is recommended that he apply one for it, right?

Anyways, he called me again this morning and asked me if I can help him search an insurance company that can give him the best package for his car. Luckily, my cousin May who had applied for a homeowner’s insurance told me about how great Insurancerate.com works. Insurancerate.com is a one stop insurance company that offers competitive insurance rates for different clients. They offer great packages for auto, home, health, and life even condos and renters! Yeah, you read it right, even renters can be insured!

Now, all I have to do is email him and tell him about this cool deal. I bet he’ll be excited to have his free quote after reading my mail.

My Auntie Wila recently obtained her driver’s license. I know it’s quite late for her but as the saying goes “it’s better to late than never!”. My cousins are teasing her because she just got her driver’s license at the age of late forties. My aunt just purchased a brand new color red Nissan vehicle car through quick car loan. They decided to buy a vehicle due to necessity and practicality. It’s good to know that they did not have any difficulty financing the car. They were well-educated on the programs of auto financing and they experienced an extraordinary assistance in making their best choice. No hard time at all.

As soon as the vehicle arrived home, my aunt immediately grab her driver’s license, jumped into the vehicle and hit the road for a test drive. Thankfully she got back home with the vehicle in one piece. My uncle was quite worried because they have not yet paid the quick car loan, so the vehicle must be well taken care of.

After a week, my aunt’s family took a long drive to visit her sister, my other aunt, for a birthday party. Every morning my aunt Wila would drop my cousins at school then pick them up after school hours. My aunt is really into driving now a days..

Easy PayDay Loan

My friend Sarah is currently living in the states now. She just found her first ever job there and her employer immediately asked her to come to the states and start working with them. It has been one month since she left for the states and now she’s thinking if she can apply for a payday loan.

Yeah, being a newbie in the big city of America is not really easy, the financial and emotionally issues can really break you down. And as of this moment, Sarah is having trouble with her financials. Well, who wouldn’t be, right? Only a month at work and now one to count on plus include the effect of financial crisis in states! Urgh! You can really get crazy over there.

Good thing, people had created the World Wide Web. Why? Well, because of the internet, Sarah can talk to us and get some help! Like what I’m doing now, I’m trying to help her search a financial institution that offers a no fax payday loan where she can apply a payday loan without the need or the hassles of faxing the needed requirement or so. Plus the immediate availability of funds is strongly considered.

Luckily, Easyonlinepaydayloan.com is here to help! Now, Sarah would be thrilled to check my research, I just hope she gets approved asap! :)

Credit for Credit Cards

I got my credit card through an agent. One day, an agent, who is doing rounds, visited our office and he offered applications of various credit cards. There is HSBC, Citibank, Standard Chartered, and a lot more. Availment of credit card here in the Philippines is being marketed like that. If you would like to know personally credit card offers using internet, you would need to browse individually the sites of your preferred credit card companies - which takes time. As far as I know, there is no one stop shop facility/ internet site that offers information about credit card offers of various companies.

Unlike the experience of my cousin, Kathryn, in Los Angeles. Since she resides in a technologically advanced country, everything is convenient. She have told me that it's easy and convenient to avail bank credit card. You just need to browse in the internet, visit a single web site and can choose among various bank credit crad, in which you would know immediately their services offered. Also, you will be oriented to use credit wisely or well-manage it. Were you amazed? Well, I did! For sure, Kathryn has more reasons to shop around malls with her credit cards. haha! Just don't spend too much cousin dear.. ~wink~ :-)

Cash Advance to the Rescue!!!

Last week, I am glad to have time chit-chatting with my friend, Karen, who is living in United States, and I just knew that she is pregnant and about to give birth in a few days. Karen is my former office mate here in the Philippines. She had an opportunity to live in the United States together with her husband. It's been a while since our last chat. Then, last night Karen's husband, Ron, called me and informed me that my friend gave birth to baby boy! "At last!" he mentioned. After wards, I spoke to my friend and sounds very happy.

My friend shared with me that she and her husband fall short of cash about $1000-$1500 as payment for hospital bills. They could have had that amount until next week, which is pay day week, however, unexpectedly my friend gave birth. So, what they did is to avail the american cash advance to bridge the gap. Then when pay day comes, they will pay outright the cash advance. Good thing there are ways and means nowadays to resolve urgent cases like that. It gives you comfort to know that there would always be a support to count on - to the rescue!

Got high PR!!

Yep, am happy and proud to announce that I have gained a Page Rank of TWO (2)!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks google for this! And I added a gadget to make a show off as proof of my statement. Ahahaha.. Am just glad.. that's why I received many opps yesterday.. please tolerate me for now... Lol! Have a nice day to all!

Saturday Time-Out

Last Saturday is a black out day here in Pampanga. And the heat is killing everyone!!! That same day is Lance schedule for his vaccination. We went to his pedia and injected Lance with 5-in-one vaccine, i.e., Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis; HiB; and IPV. Then hubby, I and Lance went to the mall to feel the cool breeze air.. ehehe.. We had lunch at Jollibee as usual. Then we went to Ideal Vision to purchase new eyeglasses of hubby. The old eyeglasses were broken by my very curious baby Lance. Whenever he will be lifted by Papa, Lance will surely grab Papa’s eyeglasses and stretch it wide-open! Poor disabled eyeglasses… We also bought Lance a sunglass.

Then, we proceeded at Robinsons Appliance Center and Abenson’s to look for a washing machine. We are replacing our worn-out washing machine. We chose the LG 8.5kg Washing Machine. It’s a new model with a Power Jet Roller, this will not make clothes tangle while washing, It’s also electricity saver as it produce 280 wattage on its washer and 160 wattage on spinner whereas most of the machines were 400 and 160 wattages. We haven’t purchased the machine until now. Maybe this coming weekends..

Next, we went to Gupit Bulinggit to have Lance haircut. This salon is where Lance had his first haircut ever! My baby still cry out loud but there were instances that he stops crying because he would watch the video of Barney and friends. It’s good to have salons like that there are a lot of distractions for babies to be entertained and forget to be frightened. Lol!

What a day! The three of us were exhausted! Whew! That’s how we spent our weekends..

Purse Talk

Here is my bag and I’m glad to share the bits and pieces of it. All hail to Anney and Beth for this! Lol! :-)

The rules are as follow:

1. Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you can't go into your closet and pull out your favorite purse! We want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house.
2. List how much it cost. And this is not to judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, we'd love to hear it.
3. Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you're showing everyone your bag.

This is my office bag. It was a Christmas gift from hubby last 2 years ago; I no longer remember the exact amount but I think it costs P1,000+ that time. Inside my overused bag is my 2009 Planner (a Christmas gift of my friend/ officemate); Naraya Coin Purse (haven’t washed it since I bought it last year- yaiks! Lol!); Card Holder; Croc Leather Purse (where my powder, lip gloss, lotion, moisturizer, etc. are kept); Key Purse (I carry lots of key – office locker, house, car) Bulgari Perfurme, (a gift from my SIL when she arrived in the Philippines); Rubbing Alcohol; Mouthwash; White Flower; Sign Pen (a gift from a friend, Angel); Sanitary Napkin; Wooden Fan (newly purchased due to hot weather – ehehe); comb and roller brush. That’s all! I’ve realized I have so many things in my little baggage..

Passing this to: Eds, Mye, Gina, Faye, Adette, Jenny-Talks and Shy

A Perfect blend of Friendship Award

Anney thanks for passing several tags and awards… I appreciated them all.

When I started to enter the blogging world last year, I only knew 3 friends who are in this world; then, I doubted my entry. At first, I was worried if people will like or accept my posts and MYSELF because I’m not a creative writer at all.

But eventually I was wrong. BeinG mYselF made me free. What you see in my blog title is what you get in me. And I’m very glad to have my online friends. You don’t get to see each other physically but you are being updated with happenings - as if you’re physically there. Miracle?! Nope, that’s what you call friendship!

I now pass this privilege to Eds, Yhang, Jhona, Vannie, Cutella, Junelle, Berryblitz, Gina, Mye, and Ka. Thank you for rocking my world!

Summer is totally IN !!!

Can you feel the heat?! Yep, it's summer time once again! And I'm thinking to have the usual swimming activity. Last year, I had one post-summer outing and it was during our lakbay aral (an office orientation-seminar) in Batangas last July. Here are some pictures...

I'm excited this year because hopefully it will be the first summer outing of my baby and I'm thinking to buy him swim wear and a "salbabida" (forgot the english version.. hehehe).. Am sure Lance will enjoy the water like enjoying it during bath time. I'm planning it on April 5 since that would be a long weekend I hope this will materialize.. (cross fingers!) I'll definitely post the pix on that day..! Until then.. :-)
