The Christmas Spirit

There a lot of Christmas concerts happening this month for the benefit of the typhoon victims. And I salute them for doing that. The victims need all the help they can get right now. The musicians are helping them to at least ease the pain of losing everything. And to have a Merry Christmas. I offered prayers and donated some relief last month. And I hope it will at least help them. This Christmas my wish is that the people in Visayas will have more strength in the coming days specially at Christmas. Hugs to you all!
Anyways, I will continue my gift hunting now. I should get that classic uad at musicians friend that I saw the other day for my love ones. Off to take a look!

A Gigantic Cookie

IMG_2022

On our way home we dropped by Starbucks to buy some coffee. Hans picked that big cookie all for himself. He almost finished that one! He loves to eat I tell you. He loves food. I am so glad that he was like that. healthy and such a cute little boy. I love you Hans!

Gift For My Manito/Manita

I am now listing my Christmas gift list for families as early as now. December is the most busiest month of the year so I need to do this early. I have a gift for the little ones including my nephews and nieces. We have this exchange gift at our family reunion and I am eyeing this Foam for my Manito/Manita. The one I got might need the acoustical soundproof foam as suggested by his friend but I am still looking for one right now. Or I will just give him/her something that is common like a wallet or something. Oh well, I still have a lot of time to think it over.

Thinking of Siomai

…right now.

IMG_3358

I wanna eat siomai which my friend makes. I super love her siomai. I order every time there is an occasion and sometimes even if there isn’t. I just eat it for meryenda or for lunch. I am not a siomai lover before but after I tasted the one that my friend makes, I instantly fell in love with it. I can now say that I am a siomai addict! LOL!

Give that Mic!

During our Karaoke Nights last week, Cate went to me and asked if she can hold the other microphome. And I was in shock as she is not the type who will sing in front of many people. So I said she can and guess what she just played with the mic and handed me again. I guess the shyness isn't over for my little girl. LOL!

An Invitation

My friend emailed me the other day. She was asking me to go with her because she is having new born to sing at guitar center. But I refused as I am too busy right now. It will be a good day to bond with her though. But there will always be next time. And I am so excited for that to come. I hope she is still game next time. Fingers crossed!

Reformatting Mom’s Laptop

Mom was asking me last week to reformat her laptop because it has a virus. I told her to try the ESET anti virus but she doesn’t know techy stuff so I just told her to bring the laptop to me and I will check it. But I was too lazy to get another anti virus so I just went ahead and reformatted the laptop. And it was A ok now. Thank God! Mom was very happy.

Buko Pandan Ice Cream

I am not a fan of this flavor so I only eat a little if I was offered to eat Buko Pandan. But dad bought an ice cream with this flavor yesterday for my daughter’s 3rd birthday. The guests ate the other flavor so the Buko Pandan was left on the fridge. And after lunch earlier I am craving for something sweet and I saw the ice cream. Ok I said I will just eat a little but men it was so yummy! I got another cup! hahaha! Ok now I am a convert! I will eat buko pandan from now on. haha!

A Friend Needs Oktoberfest Flag Invitation Cards

My friend is planning of doing her own Oktoberfest flag invitation cards. She is one creative lady and loves to DIY on a lot of stuff. But I told her that there are sites that she can check out to get the best invitation and party invitation wording for Octoberfest. It will be less hassle for her and she can give more time to other things that she need to accomplish for the party.

invites for Oktoberfest party
I directed her to invitations-shoppe. The site that offers creative and beautiful designed cards. The site said they will gladly modify any card design or color as requested. What a great deal! Specially to my friend who is so choosy and picky on what to decide on things.

Switching

I am thinking of switching our internet provider. Our current provider is giving me slow connection lately. And there is no connection when I need it the most. It is so annoying! I guess it is time to make a switch. I am going to make inquiries tomorrow on the other network so I can make a switch. i just hope our place is serviceable by them. Fingers crossed!

Interest in Music

DV016_Jpg_Large_H73585_front 
My kids shows interest in music as early as now. Cate who is 2 years old and Hans who is 1. Yes they love to sing and dance and play some toy instruments. They love the drums, guitar and the piano. I am thinking to buy vht amps at guitar center but I think it is too early as they wouldn’t know how to use real instruments. In the coming years when they grow up for sure we need to get them real ones and that very nice amps that we saw at guitar center. And I cannot wait for that time for them to play their instruments for us. That’ll be awesome right?

Hello Wednesday!

Half of the week already! yey! I cannot wait for weekend!

Weekend for us means family time and I love family time! Spending time together makes me really happy. I wish it is weekend everyday so we can bond and be with each other but I can’t Life is just like that. Oh well!

I must plan on what to do this weekend. I need to go to the mall amd let my kids play at their favorite playground. Will ask hubby about that.

The Cymbal

I got my kids a toy drum last week. It was on sale so I got it right away. But what surprises me is that they love the cymbal more than the drum itself! I should have gotten the cymbal instead. hahahaha! These two are so into music instruments nowadays. I am sure in the future I will be searching for the sabian at musicians friend site. They love musical instruments more than any other toys. I guess I am raising two future musicians eh?

Summer is Over

Now that summer is over I am thinking of other things that the kids can do. They get bored easily so I need to get more ideas on how to entertain them. I must open my pinterest to get some ideas. Will do that later. I need to take some notes. I hope to get more so I will have plan B if plan A is unsuccessful. If you know any site in which I can get some ideas please do share. Thank you!

Beautiful Kitchen

kgrs505xss_ab-defaultzoom_550x550_ho

My friend posted a photo of her and her son in their new kitchen at their new house. They have the grand kitchenaid kgrs505xss. Wow that was my ultimate dream stove! I am sure she will make a lot of yummy dishes in that kitchen. Who won’t be inspired to cook in that wide spacious kitchen with all the beautiful kitchen set and cook wares? I wish to have a kitchen like that someday. Ok yes I envy her a lot!

Skyflakes and Cheez Whiz

My snack for this afternoon. Easy to prepare and yummy to eat! I love snacking on this one! I can eat 5 sandwiches of it. Yes that much! =) I wonder what will be my snack for tomorrow. Skyflakes and cheez whiz again? Maybe!

Cleaning up my Hard Drive

Was thinking of reformatting one of my hard drive but I am finding it hard to erase the files that was in it. Now I am on google to search on how to erase hard drive. I need to learn it as I don't know who will do it for me. My brother is not here and I badly need to clean my hard drive. Ok off to search for the steps on how to clean my hard drive. Bye for now!

Summer Time

DSC_6444

We spent our Sunday, swimming at Mateo Spring Resort in Irosin, Sorsogon. That place is so beautiful! I love that the water is hot. Cate loves it too! We hope to go back there again this month with my side of family. They will love it there! Yey for another outing!

Envelop Prints

A friend posted on her Instagram a photo of her new project. She is making really nice envelope prints and pretty invitations. I am so proud of her achievements. Good job my dear friend! I will order from her as my niece will celebrate her birthday soon. I really like her under the sea designs. Oooh I am so excited! I can’t wait to plan my niece’s birthday too!

The Hot Weather

The reason why I am not that much blogging is the hot weather. Staying in front of the laptop is sweating me out! Plus demanding kids. Ugh! Sorry for not posting that often. The weather makes me lazy to do anything too! All I want is to do is to stay inside the bathroom and take a shower and just stay there forever! haha! Ok enough blabbing I need to work now. Bye!

Good Morning Ate!

I was looking into Premier Mounts Store when my daughter woke up. She was smiling and giving me kisses. She woke up in the right side of bed halleluiah! It is not that often that my daughter wakes up happy. Sometimes she is irritable. Having a good and long sleep makes her morning happy. She slept at 8pm last night. I wish it will be like this forever but that's impossible.

Good morning everyone!

Pinterest

I am again hooked on this site! Totally addicting!

pinterest-logo

I was a member since 2010 I think and I stopped using it as I am not happy with it. And now I decided to give it another try and yes I am pinning like crazy! I love what I see in that amazing site! lots of tutorials, tips and inspirations.

I can now say that I am a Pinterest addict! LOL!

Old Times

Hubby was telling me stories on how they were before when we haven't met yet. He was into band before together with his brother. He told me they have been traveling from one place to another to perform. They have a markbass bass speaker for him to use before. I wonder where it is now. He should find it so Hans can use it in the future. Or maybe it was with his brother who has a band right now. He said he will ask him. I am imagining my son playing guitar in a band and that will be so cool right?

A Vacation Soon

DSC_2526

I can smell vacation already. Yey!

Lenten season is just a few weeks from now and my family are thinking of going to Garchitorena for a vacation. I want to go there as I need a vacation right now. Plus my kids needs to visit their great grandparents. I love to go to the beach there too! Ooohhh I am so excited already!

Guitars

I need music therapy right now.
Today has been a quiet morning for me as my daughter is still asleep and my son is outside with nanny taking his nap. I am happy with the silence but it was like I am deaf. I cannot work without music or any sound in the background. So I played pitch perfect movie and let it be my background music or sound. I saw it already so no need to let it open and watch it.
When I heard the music where the scene was the Trebles are performing on stage, I pictured them on my head and imagined I was in the audience. The sound was like they holding a guitar. They are accapellas group so no musical instrument was used. I think this movie is a great one! The music was like they are holding the best seagull guitars in town. So cool!

Election Time

Election time again here in the Philippines. I haven’t had a list on who I am going to vote, in fact I haven’t seen the official line up on who are the candidates. But I know a lot of popular personalities are going to run. Some are already purchasing wholesale brochures to be given during campaign period. I haven’t received any. So I will just wait for them and list my candidates then. Have you listed your candidates already? Mind sharing them to me?

My Favorite Snack

DSC_5487_copy

I love it when our helper make this as our snack. I can eat all of these in an instant. Paired with an Iced Tea or coke this is the best meryenda ever! Hubby loved it too! The sweetness of the sugar is yummy! We love ut with lots of sugar. Now I am thinking of having this as our meryenda later. Will buy Sweet potato first.

Little Drummer Boy

My friend's son loves to play the drums at a very early age. I think he is 7 now. Yes that early. I love it that they trained their child and followed what he really likes. Even if his passion is so expensive they still pursued his dreams. WTG my friend! They told me that the great Pearl Drums will be their gift next Christmas. Aww that is so sweet right?

Lens Tumbler

DSC_3515

I love my lens tumbler. My sister’s boyfriend gave this to me last Christmas. Thank you!

I love drinking my milk (I am not a coffee drinker) on this tumbler every morning.

The other day the maid didn’t washed this so i asked her why. She just said she thought it was the lens of my camera! Oh how I wish I have a lens like that. haha!

Overheard

I went to the mall yesterday to buy essentials for Hans' birthday coming next next week. I noticed a man looking for something at his bag. He kept on rummaging his bag but cannot find what he is looking for. I wish I can help him but I am shy and of course it is not good etiquette. And then his buddy came and I heard him asking if he knows where is his cigars. He said it is important because it is a gift from his wife that was purchased at the padron cigars online. His wife will be mad if it was lost. And then I left. I hope he find it soon. Poor man.

Two Weeks

Two weeks from now it’s my son’s 1st birthday already. I am now busy planning and preparing for that. The loot bags arrived last Saturday and I am excited to organize them. I still need to design the thank you card print then and attach them to the bags. Plus we need to buy candies and biscuits to add to the bag. I am scheduling that this weekend as our maid is here to help me. I am one excited mom! I hope my son is excited too!

Arch Support Inserts

archsupport_orthotics_prod

I have a runner friend who always complain on his tired feet after running in the morning. I should have given him the best arch support inserts last Christmas. Oh well his birthday is near I will just give him that instead. Thank God i still have time to save up for that. I know it will benefit him a lot. I hope he won’t complain aching feet after his birthday. I heard this arch support inserts are the best one so lets see if he will like it. I can’t wait!

Better

My two kids got sick since last week and i am thankful that they are getting better today. They are still in meds as cough won’t go. But thankful no more fever now. I am so worried when they both have high fever. My poor babies. =(

I Need Some Pampering!

After the Holidays my body needs to relax. All the stress and the traveling back and forth at the mall to buy gifts caused these achy body parts! And I wish I can have a hot bath in a Jacuzzi! Too bad I can only drool on the beautiful Jacuzzi's at qualitybath.com. I wish we have those here. Our shower doesn’t release hot water so we have to rely on the hot water in the kettle. LOL! But I hope to have at least a bath tub or a water heater when we construct the 2nd level of our house. Wish! wish wish! oh should I say save! save! save?

If you are also like me who needs pampering go visit qualitybath.com for jacuzzi tubs and enjoy your relaxation moment as soon as it is installed! I envy those who can right now. =(

New Bottles For Cate

DSC_4237 

We purchased new Avent bottles for Cate as the maid forgot that she was sterilizing the bottles and all of them got burned. =( She has 6 big bottles before and now counting this 2 new bottles she only have 4. I got mad with the action she did but I calmed myself and talked to her that those bottles are not ordinary ones. I just thought that it is time to replace those bottles as Cate is using it for 2 years already.

Welcome 2013!

I was looking at the photo of the maha mh-c9000 when I suddenly thought of not having to post here for January 2013. Totally no relation to what I am doing but it just popped and tadah! I haven’t blogged! And I am right It’s been a month already! Eeeekkk!!! I am so sorry for not updating this blog often. It’s just that I can’t find time to sit, think and blog my thoughts right now. I am one busy mom. But I hope to update more often this year. I think that is my resolution.
