2009 Plans

I am thinking of making a big change on our life this 2009. We want to get pregnant in 2009 and I hope the baby plans will be successful. I hope to have a healthy baby this time. We are also allotting some of our savings to continue renovating our house. I wanna paint the external part of our house. And also get a new tv stand for our TV in our bedroom. I wanna get a water purifier and some furniture for our kitchen. I hope to get this done before 2009 ends. Wish me luck!

Marriage in 2009

In February, 2009 my friend Melissa will get married to hubby's friend Jeff. They are a great couple and friends. I am happy that they are settling down already. Melissa told me that she still wants to have a simple kind of engagement rings before she gets married. Well it is up to Jeff if he will still give my friend a simple one right? What is important is the wedding and their love to each other. I love them both!

Wood Flooring

I always want to have a wood flooring but with the cement floor we have we need to use tiles on our floor. But my dream house has wood flooring. I remember when I play The sims2 I will always get the wood flooring for my house. I am happy when I use the wood flooring on my house in Sims2. The house is neat and in proper order. It is a great design to the house also. If I won the lottery I will surely buy my dream house first and of course with wood flooring in it!

To Be Sure

I am watching the news right now and there are a lot of road accidents in Manila. I hate seeing a lot dies in car accidents. There are drivers who are so irresponsible and doesn't even care about the rules and watch traffic signs. And because of that I am thinking that term life insurance is really important to everyone. One should get one to be sure. You'll never know what will happen to you next. Knock on wood.


I can't sleep well yesterday and so is hubby. I don't know maybe our bed is the problem. You know we sleep on a single bed. Yes, in a single bed. We can sleep there. That is why maybe it is uncomfortable to sleep with. I need to get a larger bed with heated mattress pads. It will change our sleeping I guess. I saw this site that offers a great deal and I can't stop drooling about that mattress. I love the colors of the bed sheet and I want to have it. But it is so sad I still don't have the money for it. :(


This is so cute right?

I bought this at etsy.com for my little niece Nadine. It is so cute I bought it the day i saw it on etsy. My sister in law wanted to have a crochet shoes for her daughter while she was still pregnant. This is my Christmas gift for her. She loved it!

New Light

I have been searching for a nice lighting fixtures online. I want to put one on our living room. I am on a shopping mode but sadly no money yet. I am waiting for someone to pay on my paypal. I hope I can get before new year starts. I want a beautiful living room to start a year right. And I want a nice light for our house. Our light there right now is dim so I need to get a bright one. Ok browsing some site again. Later!

Water Therapy

Been drinking lots of water lately. Thinking this will make me lose weight. ahahhaha! I wanna go back to my college days body where in I can use 25 size pants. Or if I got bored I will surely try this Alli diet pills that I saw online. I read some reviews and I think they are good enough for me. The side effects of alli are the side effects of other diet pills so I can do this! I need to do this! LOL!

I Wanna Be A Super Model?

I think almost all female dream of having a great body. With perfect size of boobs, small waistline and curvy hips. If you will ask me I will definitely say that I want a body like that also. I want to be beautiful also. In fact when I was a child I dream of becoming a super model! Yah! I always look in front of the mirror, make faces like a super model do and wear moms beautiful dress! But as I grew up my plans on what I want to be changed. Nursing also came and then teaching and now I am a Computer Science graduate. Very far from the super model dream right! But the super model dream is always in my heart. I wanted to but I can't. I don't have those qualities a super model have. My friend suggested to me to try the Denver Plastic Surgery but I still need to save up for that if I really want it right? My friend encouraged me to try it since they have the best plastic surgeon in town. She tried them and loved it! She also told me that we need to be beautiful and why not make it happen! Hmmm will think it over and over again. =)

I have a new niece!!!

I forgot to share it here that my new niece finally arrived last November 14, 2008. I got to take a few shots of her last time and I am happy to see her. I am happy to shoot her also. I didn't bring my camera the day she was born so my brother took photos of her through his camera phone. He only got a few shots because his micro sd is not that big.

The Best

I was talking to my friend on YM yesterday and our conversation leads to our bodies. She wanted to gain weight while I want to be slimmer. I wish I can just give my fats to her so that everything will be fine. hihihiih! She suggested to me the best diet pill her sister found on the net. I wanna try it also because my friend said it was really effective. We said goodbye and I told hubby that I want to get that diet pill but he didn't replied. I guess silence means yes? hihihi!

Hubby's Birthday

I already did my balance transfers last week. I need to have money for my husband's birthday this coming Saturday.I need to get a present to him. I have something in mind already but I am still searching the web for some other ideas. I will also cook on Saturday because my husband said he invited some close friends. I am happy that he will celebrate his birthday with friends. I know he is happy to be 34 this year!

Update on Me after 40 years

My goodness its been 40 years since i updated this blog!

A Lot has happened to me. Last Nov 1 we went to Huey. We offered a mass and prayed a lot for him. My cousins are there too. After visiting Huey we went to my Aunt's house and we had a small meeting for our Christmas Party. It was fun to see my cousins and other relatives again. I had a great All Saint's Day.

How's everyone here? I hope all of you are doing well.


I just came home from the hospital. Dad was confined because of mild stroke. I was really tired today. I badly need to sleep. But I need to update all of you first. And at the same time look for a good ideas for Christmas gifts on the net. And thankfully I went to this site that offers their new Tea Collection line of clothes for baby, toddlers and child which I found these:

These are perfect for Jun's God Daughter and God son. I love the colors and the design so much. I wish they have my size. hihihiih!

Dansko Shoes

Hubby's birthday is near already (Nov 8) and I wanna get him something that he will really like and use. I am browsing the web for some ideas until I came across this site that sells this Dansko shoes.

I wanna get this for him. His shoes are already old and has a little damage in it. Do you think he will appreciate this? Hmmm.. all I think right now for potential gift is shoes so this will do now. I might browse again tomorrow and if I didn't find anything this will be my gift for him.

Boracay Trip

I didn't tell you all that hubby and I went to Boracay last Oct 9-13. It was really a nice trip and vacation.

Here are some photos:

I am glad to at least unwind a bit and spend time with my husband. We did enjoy our trip!

New Laptop Needed

I badly need to get a laptop. I want the pink or purple Dell laptop but hubby said he was eyeing the Sony Vaio. Well, he will shell out the cash so Sony Vaio it is! LOL! Any laptop for me will do as long as it is running and can install the Adobe photoshop which I really need for scrapping and editing photos. I need to get one because we have no internet connection at home. It is not yet available on our area. And I can't always bring my PC.

A lot are asking me why I have this addiction to scrapping. And they are telling me that my time are wasted in scrapbooking. They also ask me to get a job first. Even if I want to get into sales manager jobs and other jobs that I am qualified with, I am not that ready to take the plunge. I need to enjoy my life first. I really enjoy my life right now. I am earning and I love my hobbies! I never forget that I have a husband and I am a good wife to him (i hope!). So I don't care what people around me are saying as long as I am happy and my husband is happy.

Why No Baby for Us Yet?

A lot of my friends and relatives are asking us why we don't make another baby. Well we really want to have another baby after Huey. It is so sad not to have a baby in the house you know. I also want to experience motherhood again. It is just that we haven't saved well for the baby. I want to secure him/her first. We are still paying for a lot of debts and hubby is still thinking to buy a bus, a new one. And I want to enjoy first my no baby moments. I know a lot of time will be allotted to babies. Hubby is ok with that also. He enjoys being like a single man again. hihiihi! I let him enjoy his life first.

Good Acne Treatment for my Sister

My sister is still using the acne treatment her dermatologists gave her. I adore her face right now unlike before that her face is covered with a lot of acne! I am glad that the medicine prescription of her derma is good. She has now a clean face. She got a very bad face because of stress in school. Now that she graduated I gave her advice that she should take care of her face because she might not meet her Mr. Right! ahhahahah!

Happy Weekend!!!

Peptic Ulcer

I remember my cousin who was still a nursing student was asking me a favor to research on Peptic Ulcer Disease. At first I was clueless on this subject. But when I came across a site about this I finally learned that this is a no joke disease. It needs to be cured immediately if you got the symptoms already. I printed what I got and gave to my cousin the following day. She needs it for her thesis. I am glad that somehow I got to help her in a simple way. She is now a nursing graduate and is ready to take the nursing board exam. I am so proud of her.

This announcement was paid for by Epocrates.

Still IN!

This coming weeks theme is another tough one. It is all about Balance and Symmetry on layout. I haven't fully understand this weeks theme and I don't want to think about it right now. I wanna enjoy my week end first and do my layout on Monday. Wish me luck ok?

Happy Weekend!!!

Dog Lover

You Are: 60% Dog, 40% Cat

You are a nice blend of cat and dog.

You're playful but not too needy. And you're friendly but careful.

And while you have your moody moments, you're too happy to stay upset for long.

I agree to this fun quiz's result. I am more a dog lover than a cat lover. I have allergic rhinitis and I am allergic to cats.

Dream TV Stand

Hubby and I are doing some window shopping on furniture last weekend. We are slowly buying stuffs for our house. And my long time dream tv stands are on sale at that time on our local mall but we don't have any money so we let it pass hoping there will be next sale. I am so sad about that. I am eying that TV stand for a long time. Hubby said it was not meant to be. So I will just wait for another sale and I will be lucky if that TV stand is still there. Sigh!

Like for the Week #1 we are asked to do a 4pc party set and that includes a pop up invitation! I hardly slept the past week just thinking on what to do for this round. And I have to do my CT works on digital scrapbooking. Really time consuming. I also need to look for a Lipovox review because sister is asking for my help with her research. Thank God my hubby is not demanding with my time right now. He understands that I am happy doing this. Thanks Hon!

Life Saver

It was so nice to see a stall that offers a promotional products at the super market. There is one time that the daughter of my yaya was with me and she kept on telling me that she is hungry already. But I still need to buy groceries. So when i spotted those promo girls I asked for a sample and she gladly gave me a lot! The kid was happy she is not hungry anymore. LOL! Promotional products are a life saver! heheheh!

Travel Abroad

Mom and dad is planning to go to Bangkok this year. The always check the Cebu Pacific Website for some discount on the flight tickets.

I fantasize their furniture catalog and I wish I can buy there also someday. I have a lot on my things to buy list. I am also saving up for a new furniture on our house.

Go Go Go Cousin!

My cousin went home from manila last week. I am happy to see her again. We cope up with each other and talked on what happened in our lives.

After so many years of being love less she is now happily in love! I wish her more success in life and more happiness. Way to go girl!!!

Promotional Items

I am looking for promotional items right now. Dad asked me to find one for his friend. He wants me to search the web and help him find the best one and the most thing that people will like. I came across this site that has a lot of it and I said to myself that this is the one I am looking for. Dad will surely be thankful for this. I am referring this site called Inkhead to him. I hope his friend will like it also.

Healthy Me

My tummy hurts when I drink coke. Last night there is Coke zero on the fridge and I asked hubby if I can drink that and he said ok. After I finished a glass my tummy hurts a lot. I thought I just need to go to the bathroom but tummy still hurts a lot. I will never drink sodas again. I need to rest my tummy from now on from sodas. I might also consider on the colon cleanse that my friends are telling me. I need to be healthy!

Christmas is Near. Weeeee!!

It is already August (my birth month) and this is the last month that has no "ber". September will be coming up and Christmas is near already. I better start creating Christmas invitations to our family party. I need to make one for a change. we always use our mobile phones in inviting my relatives and maybe this year we need to make an invite to make things formal right? I will mark my calendar and do this as much a possible as I can.


Sadness is self-inflicted.

You need not to bother too much about every crappy, shitty occurrences around you.

But then again, you tend 2 get yourself involved.

Happiness is self-induced just the same.

As they say, it’s just a matter of perspective.

So while you still have the chance to shape your day’s mood, choose: would u rather be sad or happy?

Life is good.

Life is bad.

You decide.

Birthday Present

I am currently browsing this site which I can buy a compact flash for my brothers birthday this coming September 4. I want to give him an upgrade since he will be needing a lot of capacity on his memory card for his DSLR. He was two child and he will be taking lots and lots of photos of them. I hope he won't read this or else the plan will be destroyed! LOL! I need to save up for that now.

Photo Shoot

I had my photo shoot last Wednesday evening. I had my tripos, my D80 and my remote. I dressed up as if I will go to the mall. Wear my accessories and changed my hairstyle from time to time. I was having fun shooting myself. Hubby was so busy outside doing something with his motorcycle. One thing I noticed is that I lose weight the last time I had a photo shoot like that. I am happy but I need to work on my weight more. I need to exercise and lose more weight. If that won't work I will take into the plunge and take this Leptitrex medicine! But I think I can do this! I need to do this! Wish me luck friends!

I am super busy right now! I don't know what to do first. I guess I need to start working now or else the patio furniture that I am eying at the nearby furniture store will forever be a dream. I won't be able to get it. You see I am saving up for house furniture. Hubby said it is not yet important but it is for me. I want my house to be as beautiful as it can be. I want to have a complete things in my house. So I really need to work! work! and Work!

Sexy Again???

As I was facing the mirror this morning I noticed that I lose weight already. My bulging belly and arms is now gone. It is still big but not as big as before. Yey! My diet is working! I won't need to take Fentraphen now! I am so happy! Hubby is telling me also that I lost some weight and he was happy for me too! I need to maintain this so that I will feel good about myself. Wish me luck in maintaining this weight!

Felt So Ugly Today

Have you ever felt at one time that when you wake up and faced the mirror and said to yourself how ugly you are today? I felt that today. I don't know why but these acne on my forehead is the suspect that is why I feel so ugly today. My husband said it is nothing and I am still beautiful. Yah right I think he is being biased to me. I am having a self pity day today. So just leave me alone. =(

Door Hardware

I am staying at my sisters room when I go here at my parents house. Mom put my computer on her bedroom. Yes I am a squatter! LOL! I want to work in a peaceful room so this will be fine to me. But recently the door to this bedroom is hard to close. I think this needs to be replaced. I need to check our local door hardware if they have the same size. Gotta call my husband first to see if he is available this afternoon. I need a driver you know!

Damaged Shower Faucet

This morning just when I was about to open the shower faucet I noticed a crack behind it. And the OC in me brought in. I needed to go shopping and search for a new and good shower faucets. I hate seeing a lot of damages in my house. Now it is on my shopping list already. Let me see if I still have money for it!

New Phone for Yaya

Our maid has a new phone today. Mom bought it this afternoon in Legazpi. It is the time for them to have a cellphone said my mom. They are old already and they don't know how to operate a cellphone. Our maid was very happy. She can now text her love ones who is in Manila and keep in touch with her family. She still needs to go to the unlocked phone centers so that she can use the phone with two network providers. Good Luck Yaya!

Saving up Early

I want to plan ahead hubby's birthday. And what to give to him. I want my gift to be special. Something he will appreciate and love. So right now I am thinking of getting those mens gold watches for him. I know it will be expensive. So this is the right time to save up! I will cut off my digiscrapping shopping from now on. Oh God! Can I do this? LOL!

Missing Vacuum

Mom wants to borrow a vacuum to us because she cannot find the vacuum she bought last year. She will be cleaning her office furniture because it is full of dust already. I think there is a visitor coming to her office that is why. But the problem id we also cannot find our vacuum! Will try later again to search for it.

What Flavor Lip Gloss Are You?

Any guy needs to match your romantic idealism to win your heart, which is why few have.

No wonder Cherry your signature flavor. It's delicious, sugary, and fun - like you!

Used Harleys

Hubby is a motorcycle lover. He has the Suzuki Raider R150. He loves it to bits! He washes it daily and put on special oil and buys original parts for it. He said one time that if ever he has a lot of money he will get at least those used Harleys. Harley is so expensive here in the Philippines. We can't afford to buy one right now.

Saving for the Future

It is an essential need to have money right? Well to me I need money to live and to prepare for the future. That is why I save to my bank account. Saving is a very helpful way of preparing and securing the future. And as soon as I found the Monex site that is a coin dealer also. I think of this a lot. Maybe this is a nice way of saving for the future too.I should ask my husband about this and as soon as he agreed on me I will try this. There is nothing wrong in trying right? If you want to do the same then you should check out www.monex.com now.

Beautiful Poem

I found this poem from Leirs blog.

I feel her pain. She is facing a very tragic incident right now.

Leirs, I just want you to know that we are here for you and we love you so much! Be strong! You and your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

This poem is perfect for what I felt when my dear Huey was gone. =(

When tomorow starts without me
and i am not here to see …
And if the sun should rise and find your eyes filled with tears for me,

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things
we didn’t get to say.

I know how much you love me,
as much as i love you …
And each time you think of me
I know you’ll miss me, too.

But when tomorrow starts without me,
please try to understand …
That Jesus came and called my name
and took me by my hand

And said my place was ready
in heaven far above …
And that i’d have to leave behind
all those i dearly love.

So when tomorrow starts without me,
don’t think we’re far apart
for everytime you think of me,
I’m right here in your heart.

To be an Equestrian

I want to ride a horse all my life. Yah I rode a horse already in Baguio but I am not contented with it because it doesn't move. We just had a picture with the pink horse. I want to ride a horse all by myself and go around the place in Baguio. I need to practice it though and I am not a Baguio resident so it will still be a dream. I am not that good also in riding a horse through the saddles. But I love to learn. I love watching equestrians on TV. I admire them a lot!
