Book Fair


Alongside with St. Audry's costume party they also have a book fair sale at the entrance. Books on sale are coloring books, educational books on alphabets/numbers and very colorful story books ranging from small to giant size hard bound books. Good thing about school's book fair is that prices are on discounted rates. I saw books ranging from P30 and above.

Those books I usually see on famous bookstores are 25-50% less. I remember my second child Gen who's so fond of books but she's on her school on that day so she wasn't able to look on the books for sale. Anyway most of the books there are for Josh' age ranges from 3-6 years old so maybe she'll be a little bored on the lineup. Gen is so fond of Almanac books. Whenever there's a book fair on their own school Gen and Ruth gets to buy something that they like, I gave them allowances for buying books. Actually we have collection on thesaurus, synonyms, antonyms, science and educational books that they bought every book fair sale. How about your kids, what books do they prefer?

Recovery Period

After recovering from a week of losing energy and appetite I started taking multivitamins to regain my strength and boosts my energy. I always see to it that I eat at least 2 kinds of healthy fruits everyday, what I refer to as being healthy are those fruits which gives vitamins the most like vitamin C which I need right now. For now I’ll forget my diet and concentrate on full recovery. I might consider getting best diet pills after I’m normal enough to stop energy-boosting multivitamins. I know I should be giving myself a dietary plan but for this week onwards I’ll just rest. I’ll take it when I’m able.

:Today's Flower #12

Click picture to enlarge

This photo was taken in Bicolandia farm. Gumamela (Hibiscus) is a very common flower here in the
Philippines, we normally just passed by them without taking paying much attention little did we know that its uses are not ordinary. They come in many colors, red, orange, white, yellow, pink and some say purple but I still have to see a purple gumamela.

It has many uses – the leaves can be blended with Rose Hip to produce herbal tea and can be used to cure cough, bronchitis, infections, sore throat, high blood pressure, mumps, boils, fever, headaches and many others. You can search online for herbal medicine preparation.

When I was a child it’s my favorite ingredients for my liquid formula for blowing up bubbles. I just mashed and squeezed the leaves and mix it with water and soap and voila I have never ending liquid for big soap bubbles.

Homecare For Our Seniors

Our seniors in the family should be loved and cared for. They should be given proper attention and support for they’re the ones who nurtured us when we’re young, raised us to be good citizens, taught us to be good humans and sent us to school to give us good future and most importantly they gave us life. In their golden years of living they tend to show some sign of weakness and not as strong as when they were younger so better caring should be given to them.

Sometimes it necessitates others to live in other country or some place that they couldn’t anymore care for their seniors. Or in other cases there’s just no one to look after them that it’s better to look for someone to take care of them like homecare in Greenfield Indiana which can give them proper attention and care. They employ professional homecare staff who can give assistance in our seniors’ daily activities in life like eating, bathing and on reminding them on their medication intake. These are simple things but it means a lot to these seniors to have someone assists and care for them and have companion also.

There are different needs and the services offered will depend on the clients’ requirements. Gilbert Guide offers homecare listings and some information on what to look for a good homecare provider. So if you’re looking for a nursing home, hospice, homecare, home health care and other services for our dear seniors you know where to look for!

United Nations Day Parade

Early in the morning we watched the parade of toddlers from our community’s Day Care Center. I was preparing our breakfast when my kids called to watch the parade going on the street just outside our house. It’s actually a celebration of the United Nations Day and the children were in pairs representing chosen countries of the United Nations wearing their national costumes. Of course the kids were so cute and nice in their costumes, they’re groomed to look like their represented nationalities like Chinese, Americans, Asian etc.

I remembered participating in that kind of parade when my girls Ruth and Gen were 4 years old. Ruth was chosen to be Ms. India and even if she wore no makeup then she really looked like an Indian national with just her natural looks. People were saying that she’s the most look-alike face and they were calling her Ms. India.

I just noticed that celebration of United Nations Day now is much simpler.

Natural-Looking Hair Transplant

Our hair is our crowning glory so we must protect, preserve and care for it the best way we could. But what if we lose them at an early age? Some became insecure, others feel it’s their genes so they can’t do something about it but most consult doctors on how to remedy their hair loss problem. After all, our hair really affects our total look, personality and age. Why? Because you tend to look older if you have thinning hair or worse if you lose them totally.

Now this is not a problem anymore as there are lots of specialists like Dr. Gregory Pistone who can solve your problem by means of PA hair transplant which not only restores your hair but looks as natural as your original hair. With the use of follicular unit hair transplantation the result is better than the usual hair transplant, you can never tell that it’s a transplant. It’s also very affordable so many people can avail it if they want to. Now you can be younger looking and more confident with your new natural-looking hair.

Enjoying The Costume Party!

We’ve had a busy day as Josh had his costume party at their school. It’s a regular time schedule in the afternoon, actually one of the hottest afternoon this week. The school management was happy with the weather because their activity was a sure funny one but I was hoping earlier that the weather would be a little colder but without rains of course. The heat was killing us softly lol!

Anyway the kids were just as happy especially my little one who was very excited with the party. He was even chosen to join the first team of players in the game of bottle and straw. I was laughing while taking my shots because the kids seemed so confused with what they’re doing. Josh was slow in doing the game but was perfectly following the rules so no time was wasted. If you didn’t follow the rules you’ll go back so it’s better to do it slowly but surely.

As the boys were faster than girls and their costumes were much easier to handle than girls they won and Josh was beaming with pride lol! Start of the game and he has won already, he gave me his prize and returned to other games and party. Every now and then he asks me for drinks and food and when the game was over, he let me buy him his favorite – ice cream! Here's Josh and his friend Carl's picture while playing the game, more pics at my other blog!

Open Media Site

Keeping up with the news is very important in our life that’s why we buy daily newspapers, subscribed to magazines, watch news on television and update ourselves over internet for current news around the world. It’s part of our life and without it it’s like living on far away uncivilized areas. We need to keep track of what’s happening in our community, our own country and around the globe.

As a very busy person with a full time job in the office and part-time job at night I find it hard sometimes to read the latest updates on newspapers or watch television so I just turned to news on the net for the things that I want to know. It’s nice to know that now there’s allvoices, a site that allows anyone to report news from anywhere around the world. It’s a media that’s open to all and because of this you can update yourself with the current news on people, web2.0 politics coverage, stories all over the world and many other news updates, you can even report your own if you want to. You can contribute news and report them via mobile phones and your personal computers to share videos and news. You can connect and participate in the discussion adding comments to stories or you can add your voice for those who really want to have their piece of the news casting.

It’s really a great help for people who want to report news and to know what’s happening around them. It’s like having your news at your fingertips just like me browsing all news that interests me and I find it worthwhile.

The Credit Report Center

When we start a family there’s so many things that we have to buy to start a new life with. We need house, car and many other things. Not all people are rich enough or have saved enough for these necessities so applying for loans seem to be a good idea. And if you want your loan to be approved you must have a good credit report that will reflect your good credit standing. The lenders make it a point to check credit bureaus to see and check their applicant’s credit score.

It’s a safety precaution to check your credit score more often because in this way you can check if there’s some errors on it like accounts that’s been opened by hackers or identity thieves. Just check online for companies that give free credit report like the credit report center which provides this kind of free service that will help people monitor their records. It’s a lot of help to everyone especially those who are applying for their house loan, car loan or even business loan.

Your good credit score relies on your ability to pay your credit on time, no missing of payment and no bad credit reputation. Always remember that your beacon score which is your overall credit information is one of the main factors on how your loan will be approved. So to be sure that you’ll be getting a good and high beacon score always request for free credit score from the credit report center.

Old Costume

Josh will be having a costume party this Friday. I searched for a costume pattern online and I’ve found the Harry Potter costume, a big cat costume and a pumpkin overall costume. All of them are cute and easy to follow by sewers. I’ve even planned on going to my friend to ask her to sew it for me but when I saw the school’s letter on parents I’ve changed my mind. The letter requests all parents to make use of old costume or just improvise something that will not cost a lot. This has been the rule of some schools these days as the economic situation of the country is getting harder.

As parents we want the best for our children to the point of spoiling them but sometimes we must weigh things up and balance our life. The school’s advice is right and I fumbled for my son’s costume last year which still looks new and fits him. He even played wearing it because as he told me he missed his Robin costume. I’m happy that I saved a lot this time.

I'm Sick!

I was so sick yesterday at the office and the whole day today, had colds, chill all over my body and just can’t stay at my PC for a long time, makes my head swell. I was just wondering why I got sick when I had a complete sleeping hours for four days now, is my body adapted to my 3-hour sleeping that when I’ve finally slowed down on my bad sleeping habits my body didn’t recognized it, weird! Well I had a body massage twice last night and this morning by my ever loving mom and I think that contributed a lot to my speedy recovery.

Hope I’ll be able to work tomorrow as I’ve lots of things to do not to mention that I also have to check on the industrial clamps that my boss is asking me about. I still don’t know what he is trying to do with it but I’ll search on it anyway. For now I’ll just rest and pray that I’ll be fully recovered tomorrow so I can go on with my regular chores and office works.

It’s Not Right To Be Sick

Yesterday as I accompanied my daughter in her school activities I wasn’t prepared for the effect of the scorching heat that we caught on our way back home. I can’t leave my daughter to her teacher and the group to bring her home; I was also thinking that they will bring back to their home school which is few kilometers from the house. Since I can’t convince Ruth to go home earlier I just stayed the whole morning until lunchtime until the group finally went home.

We reached our house lunchtime and my two younger kids said that they missed me a lot when I was away with their sister. You know Saturday is a special day for them aside from Sunday because it’s our bonding moments. When I set everything up for their lunch I just stayed a little while in my PC to check on snowmobile exhaust that my brother was asking me to canvass then I sleep and rest. It was a bad rest as I felt difficulty in breathing, I just lay there trying to sleep but can’t relax due to abnormal breathing. A cousin told me that the heat stroked me badly and I tried to fight the ill feeling. I decided to stop resting and took a cold shower that normalizes my body temperature and began to breathe normally.

For two weeks I’ve been sleeping badly meaning sleeping late and waking up very early so this can be the cause for what I encountered so I promised myself that I will take some break or else I will not be able to take care of my kids and so on…. As the commercial of one multivitamin say ‘it’s not right to be sick’.

Repeat Performance

Woke up very early to accompany Ruth to their group repeat performance of The Bells, they won the competition last October 3, 2008. They championed the poem reading competition for the Literacy Month and won over 10 schools. Their piece was ‘The Bells’ by Edgar Allan Poe. It was a very happy moment for Ruth and I was a little sad that I wasn’t there to watch their performance. Now as the town of Cainta has a program who will be attended by the dignitaries including our town’s mayor Mon Ilagan they were invited to have a repeat performance to show the dignitaries and all the teachers present that they deserve being the champion.
They gathered at their home school, practiced there and traveled to Karangalan Elem School where the program will be held. The teachers were a little bit nervous because the participants seem so relaxed and not at their best performance so they go to a secluded corner of the place and warmed up. For me I know that they can do the same performance as they did when they won the title, you know kids are like that sometimes they want to give their best on the real stage with real people watching them. And true enough they did a very nice performance again, I saw Mayor Mon and some other dignitaries including the foreign visitor smiling as they watch the children rendering ‘The Bells’.

I was the one who took photos and videos of them. As they say I’m really a stage mom lol! And who would miss this chance to document your child life’s memorable moments? Of course I won’t miss the chance!

Here are some pics!

Shadow Of Your Wings!

I’ve been listening early in the morning for my favorite Christian songs when I picked Shadow of Your Wings by Australia Hillsongs and Darlene Zschech. This song truly proves that God is our refuge and strength in times of trouble and problem. There’s no one that we can be assured that we’re safe and protected from any harm. In His care we can cast away all our burdens and anxieties this world has given us. It’s like hiding in the shadow of His wings where we can be safe and peaceful within. Here’s a rundown of the lyrics, feel free to savor the meaning of each line.

TV Relaxation

After an exhausting day at the office and even tiring travel going back home I find it hard to eat as soon as I reached home much less do some blogging. Well I’m just too worn out after whole day’s work to do anything right away so I just spent time with my kids helping them with their school assignments.

After making sure they’ve done all required projects and assignments I prepare the table for dinner. It was a daily task for me and after all these things I will make sure that I relax myself by watching cable movies on our tv. For me it’s one of the most relaxing moments especially when you’re watching light comedy shows or inspirational theme movies. Glad I bought a bigger television two years ago which gave us a better viewing experience.

We'll Make It!

We had a wonderful bible sharing which took us until 10:30 in the evening and after dinner and many goodbyes we were ready to go home past eleven. After so many weeks of giving time to my other blog ‘My Crossroads’ I’m now resting my body and mind. I’ve refrained for few days now from my habit of working until past midnight.

I got sick from this habit and I realized I should value my health also for me and my family’s sake as well. How could I care for my kids if I’m not physically healthy? Well as I’m finished submitting and applying that to some companies now I’m just waiting for other’s approval. This is so important to me as I’m leaving my work and I plan to finish my employment this December. With my blogs, a small business and God’s help we will make it through.

Such Cravings for Ice Cream!

Josh just love ice cream any flavor and any brand. Actually when I go to office and I leave him to my Mom they would wait for the rolling ice cream on the streets. If you’ll see him calling for the ice cream vendor you’ll smile at the excitement you’ll see in his face, such cravings! See his picture here!

No wonder every time I bring him to supermarket he’ll go immediately to chest freezers containing ice cream and he’ll choose one for him. And you know where he got that super cravings for ice cream? Yes he got it from me I’m also an ice cream girl but now that I’m older I have my own flavor preferences! I love double dutch, coffee crumble and some other premium flavors, actually the only flavor that I will not buy are ube and macapuno.

Make A Change!

I was surprised that the subject here is a boy, he’s been known to possess good heart that he used to help people. Bilaal Rajan inspired other children to dream and to hope. He didn’t just inspire them but he also raised funds for UNICEF. He’s such an ideal young boy that whoever know his philantrophic attitude can attest that he can make big corporation realized that they should help others too by giving donations to less fortunate people. Bilaal Rajan goal in life is to tell the children to maximize their talents, skills and all potentials to achieve changes in life. He’s the youngest ambassador in UNICEF but proved to them that age doesn’t matter with his devotion and capabilities in helping children change their lives for a better world.

Now he made the ‘Make a Change’ book which talks about fundraising tips for activist kids who want to follow his step. The book contains guidelines for youth and topics to help them do amazing things and be creative on their own. Actually even adults could also read it to inspire them in their everyday life. Second half of the book contains eight principles to maximize your talents and skills written to encourage young children and youth to value what God has given you. The book is really a lot of help to everyone especially those who want to make a great change in their lives. Be inspired!

Hooked Up!

I can't seem to stand now and eat as I'm grabbing my chances of getting more opportunities from ppp. As I'm a full-time office employee and only a part-time blogger at night and work lunch breaks I really find it hard to get assignment from this No. 1 provider of opportunities. I was able to get assignments only on companies that offer longer days of due dates which is very flexible for part-time bloggers like me. But now that it's my free day or my day off from work I got the chance to look over and was surprised to find many opps in white background meaning it's still open for reservation. What a lucky day, it's my sixth now!

Cravings!

I woke up early this morning even if my kids has no classes today. I need to go to market early to catch up with my busy schedules. Yesterday night hubby asked me if I can cook pork sinigang tomorrow with real tamarind and not just the ready-made powder tamarind broth because he really wanted an original tamarind sour taste. He didn't know that my two girls are also asking me the other day so I decided since I don't have office work today that I'll succumb to their cravings. I bought a meat with some pork bones so it will have a tasty soup. Well actually I didn't just cooked for their cravings because it's my favorite too!

Got To Fix My PC!

I've had a hard time visiting blogs yesterday night as my PC is not at it's best condition. I scheduled it to be dropped to my office so my officemate can check it. He's a software specialist and great in troubleshooting. It was a rainy morning yesterday and since we can't use our car due to road widening I told hubby not to bring it as it's so traffic to rent a cab and dangerous if we just take a bus or jeep, it might slip! Luckily when I reached home it's working but not that fast to be able to drop ec and visit blogs quickly. It took me up to 2am again just to drop using 1 account only. Anyway I'll try to fix my PC today by myself after I'm done with my assignments.

Some Holiday Appetizers

Holiday season is just around the corner and as early as this month many Mommies out there are planning out their menu for the coming season. We’re celebrating our holiday on a villa resort where we will be having a camp meeting for three days. We’re having a group menu planning of breakfast, lunch and dinner menu for three days for a group of 80 people. Of course we will also include some holiday appetizers to go with our viands and desserts. Oh I really love menu planning and cooking. I can’t wait for it.

Ruth Is Sick!

I woke up at dawn hearing Ruth’s silent murmur and I thought I was only dreaming. As all my kids sleeps beside me I can easily check what’s troubling them at night. I was surprised when I touched her because she’s so hot and she’s having a dream calling my name. I wake her up and asked what she wants me to do. This daughter of mine has a very strong resistance to sickness compared to her other siblings. She seldom gets sick but when she does you should really ask her about it because she has a tendency not to speak much about it.

I cooked her requested oatmeal immediately and served her a plate of rice with ham and egg. She still eats even when she’s feeling bad and I feel happy about it. Since I can’t take a day off my work because I’m going to finalize and check the payroll I set everything she needs and turned over to my mother her medicine, bought all her requested food and kissed her. She’s a big girl now so she’s ok as long as her granny is with her. Mom massaged her and let her take some rest and sleep the whole morning, I just keep on sending them text messages and just now I called her. She’s feeling a lot better now, thanks to God!

Outer Banks Vacation Rentals

It’s been a tiring week for me finishing some reports and billing. What’s even tiring is my blogging every night which takes me up to 2 in the morning almost four to five times a week. I just can’t even start early evening because when I get home from office works the travel from my work to home takes a lot of my energy and strength. Upon reaching the house I will attend to my kids’ assignment and some essentials, household chores seemed to wait for me the whole day that I feel like it all crumbles on me at night.

Actually to relax myself I watch television shows and when I feel relaxed and comfortable I will start writing on my blogs. I don’t want to write on an exhausted mood, imagine sharing inspirational messages when you don’t feel inspired yourself? That’s difficult. Anyway I’m longing for a vacation where I can rest my mind and body from everyday hassle and stress. I’ve been browsing Outer Banks vacation rentals and wishing I could find the time and money to pamper myself to go to one of the finest beach homes on the outer banks.

Our God Shall Supply All Our Needs

We always held our summer camp and december camp meeting fellowship in one of the mansion in Tagaytay, the owner became our pastor's friend and we had a good christian relationship with him. Being a born-again christian in their own community Pastor Dick committed his house for our regular fellowship on holidays which is commonly on Holy Week and Christmas holidays. Pastor Ed called him up to pay for reservation fee happily looking forward to a day of sharing God's word to his Pastor friend and closing the place for our use on december.

He was surprised when Pastor Dick declined the reservation fee and apologized for letting the Belgian national rent his place on a one-year contract starting October 2008 up to 2009. Pastor Ed was dismayed and started to worry about the place that we're going to use for our fellowship. His son-in-law, a minister also in our church immediately rounded up the places in Tagaytay and nearby towns to look for a replacement. With God's providing hand He gave us a better alternative for the place that we lost to a wealthy foreigner. We will be paying our reservation fee next week on Villa Dominga Forest Resort on Halyjay, Indang Cavite. Just look at the picture here and you'll see why I called it a better alternative. When God provides it must be not just good but better isn't it?

Big Bro's Birthday!

Today is my one and only brother's birthday, the eldest sibling of De Leon family. I’m the middle child and eldest daughter of the family who resembles kuya the most and Redge is the youngest. As my brother and his wife are so busy with their store in grand mall they didn't make a fuss on this day and told us they'll just celebrate it outside. Eating outside on a nice restaurant is sometimes better than a grand birthday celebration with too many visitors. Anyway he has already given a blowout to his construction staff and that's good enough.


Kuya is a licensed Civil Engineer working in an office and managing his own business as well. He's a born-again christian like us and also a certified workaholic like me lol! My two siblings are like me, we give our best to our work and strive so hard for whatever we think is right including our faith. He's the best brother I could ever be proud of having a humble spirit and kind attitude in life. He treats everyone with fair judgement and shares God's word with a servant's heart. We (Mom, Redge and Me) thanked God for giving us the wonderful blessing of having him as a good son and a caring brother. Bro happy birthday! God Bless You always!

Insure Your Car For Less

Bills are here again and I must not forget a single one or I might be charged with interest. I hate charges you know, I like my bills paid ahead of due dates because you can rest your mind earlier and say to yourself that you’re way ahead of them. Spending our hard-earned money wisely is what I’m teaching myself because if you don’t use your money on the basic commodities and priorities you might get yourself in debt.

Working is hard and even harder if you just pay your salaries on your numerous debts leaving you a meager amount to spend on your family’s need. I’m happy with my household finance strategy now especially that I also found a cheaper car insurance for our family car. Now I don’t have to allot big amount for our car’s insurance. And that means more cash for other important things.

Isn’t it good that we can enjoy listening to audio books for our much-needed information or for our favorite bestsellers? I will surely love it.

Getting Ready For The Poem Competition

I woke up very early in the morning to prepare for Ruth’s poem group recital inter-school competition, need to get her hair done in their uniform style. They were ten chosen in their grade 5 class, 6 girls and 4 boys to complete the 30 members who will compete as a group. The other 20 were from the grade 6 class. As Ruth’s hair is long she has to take a bath very early for it to dry and be styled. That’s Mom’s job isn’t it?

I accompanied my girls in going to school at the same time checking what’s need to be done for the competing group. And I’m right because one or two of Ruth’s classmates had their hair messed up getting to school lucky that I was there. I want to go with them for moral support but I have pending jobs in the office that needs my attention today besides Ruth looked confident enough, she might get shy If I watched her lol! Some kids are like that! One of the teachers told me that they will record it in a video so I can get copy. Fine enough with me even if I really want to watch them. Anyway I’m just really excited about it; they’re going to recite ‘The Bells’ by Edgar Allan Poe.

Pictures were taken before going to the place of competition.

Hazardous Driving

Being on the road with your hands on the wheel is a big responsibility to take as the lives of your passenger is in your hands. As my father always say when I was a young kid that driving car is putting your life in danger or either getting to hospital or on the jail if you’ll not be careful. This means that driver should be in good condition in mind and body before getting on the wheel. Well if you’re living in Dallas and you happen to violate traffic laws like Driving While Intoxicated you’ll be needing dallas dwi lawyer to help you get out of jail. They have very strict rules in the States and DWI can mean a big violation on the road as it also putting the lives of your passenger and other co-drivers.

One golden rule applies here that when you drive don’t drink. Blame yourself if traffic enforcers suddenly stopped and apprehended you in the middle of the road. In case like this you’ll need the professional services of dallas criminal defense lawyer like Attorney Richard C. McConathy and his group to help you preserve and fight for your rights. DWI Lawyer Dallas have 18 years of combined trial experience in DWI Defense, a great assurance that they will do everything in their experience and knowledge in handling cases like this. But next time you drive bear in mind not to drink as you’ll be a big hazard on the road.

Sewing Fascinates Me

Ruth will participate in an inter-school competition on poem reading and today I left the office at 7pm to ensure everything she need will be there for her tomorrow. I’ve checked her uniform and found that I need to repair buttons that threatens to loose out. I want her to perform spick and span meaning not a single reason to worry about.

It’s good that I’ve been raised to a family that knows how to sew. My father and his brother owned one of the best tailoring and haberdashery shop in town in the 60’s. I remember myself playing with small pieces of textile and trying to make a dress for my doll. Sewing clothes fascinates me but didn’t pursue to master it as I’m afraid that my eyes will suffer the same eye problem of my auntie who was also fond of sewing. Now that I’m a Mom I do some sort of sewing and repairing sometimes as the need arise. I still love sewing!

Adolescence Period

Reaching adolescence period for young ladies and men is a completely exciting and sometimes difficult stage for them. It is when they start to recognize the beauty of their friends and suddenly feel something special on them and they call it their crush. The feeling is really exciting. But along with this they also encounter hardships on studying, going through peer pressure and some biological changes such as monthly periods and development of skin imperfections.

Their baby skin suddenly develops acne and if they’re not careful their face would be scarred. They should be advised well on the proper caring for their skin and the treatments for acne so at an early stage their face would regain their normal beauty. Almost all people go through this stage so there is nothing to worry about. I’m just posting some advices here to help young people out there.
