:Today's Flowers #17

This flower is one of the many flowers that caught my eyes when we were at the resort in Barangay Pansol in Calamba, Laguna. We all know that the land of Laguna is known to be fruitful, it was a familiar area where the sweet Lanzones and many fruits abound. It's also my hometown province (I'm half Rizal and half Laguna) and we grow coconut trees, dalandan, lanzones and different vegetables there.

Anyway it was taken in the afternoon past 4pm while the sun is fading away as you can see there's a slight shadow on two petals. I don't know the name of this flower and I can't ask the people there because they're busy watching over their kids on the pool. I'm too shy to ask the lifeguards lol!

I have another entry in My Crossroads.

Research Papers

To be able to graduate from school you will have to pass examinations, participate in extra curricular activities and submit report, thesis, Research Papers and lots of documents. You must submit the best paper that you can do to achieve optimum grade which will be your asset when you apply for work. Companies require a lot when you’re applying for a job and one of them is your report card which includes your grades in school. That’s one way of determining if the applicant is eligible for the position. I know this because I’m an HR officer in our company.

The problem is not all people can write perfectly, you need a little bit of skill and talent when doing a write up. Some can do research paper and reports in their best efforts but others just don’t have the skill and sometimes they don’t have the patience especially if you can’t beat the submission time. They will most likely ask for help in Research Paper Writing to assist them in their school assignment or project.

And when you need help to help you in doing your research work there’s a site online which can give you the best Custom Research Papers that will give you a high grade. excels in academic writing and will assure a client the best of grades. No more worries and pressures of due dates or deadlines. They also have 24/7 service to give you the best customer service for your convenience.

Treatment For Your Acne

Maintaining a healthy body and skin takes a lot of effort and self discipline. I’m talking of having a healthy diet, proper exercise and right amount of sleep. This is also essential to keep your face from having acne. I remember a friend in college who is so problematic about the occurrence of acne on her face. I advised her to use not just soap but a germicidal one and told her to keep away from oily foods, chocolates and some other acne-causing things. She really wants to know the best acne treatments for her face so I advised her to consult dermatologist for safety purposes. After months of consultation her face slowly showed signs of improvement.


Sky Watch At The Zoo

While watching the animals at the zoo on my kids' educational tour I had some sky watching too! From Manila Zoo's walk lane I had some nice shots here of the sky even though slight rain showers attempted to ruin the beautiful sunshine at 9am! It's my first time to join Sky Watch!

See more beautiful shots of Sky Watch here!

After 6!

I’m gaining weight each month and because holidays are coming I should start some discipline on myself now so the holidays’ eat out will not turn me into an overweight lady. My officemate told me to review my eating habit these past few months to check what caused me this weight gains. I was pretty sure that this started when hubby was given a branch assignment which required him to stay until 9-10pm and because it was very far from our house he usually arrived past 10pm.

Most often than not I wait for him so we can have dinner together but this late dinner later gained me some pounds. Actually I wasn’t so conscious about it but when my clothes start to feel tighter or smaller I started to think of ways how to be slimmer for health reasons. I thought of taking some diet pills like alli but I was advised to try eating dinner or heavy snack before 6pm. After 6 in the evening I was instructed not to eat anything or if I couldn’t help it I will eat only raw foods like fruits or some steamed veggies. Of course there’s no limit on water as this will greatly help us avoid feeling hungry.


:Yen's QOTW #41

1.Does your age make you feel left out? No because there's always someone in my group who's older than me....... make sure there are older people around you always ... honestly I manage to blend with any age
2. How do people of the same gender as you but taller than yourself make you feel?
I enjoy looking at tall ladies, my friend here in the office is one inch taller than me but I don't envy her because my height is just about right for my hubby (I'm 5'3" and he's 5'5")
3. When did you last scream? Why? Recently maybe few weeks the school because a car almost hit another car
4. What do other people do that irritate you that you recognize it as a weakness in yourself? When they talked about someone's lives, i recognize it as a weakness in myself if I can't do anything to stop them.
5. Have you ever slipped on a banana peel? Yeah but I didn't fall because I got a hold on someone and that someone almost fall lol!.
6. Have you ever walked around someone else’s home barefoot? Yes, in the province when the house has no ground floor and the living room is made of wooden floors, it's embarrassing to have your shoes on because the residents were also barefoot.
7. What do you do when you are left home alone? I do lots of things - clean the house, organize my things, cook food, watch television and call some friends
8. When someone is vague or confusing, how do you process it?
I help her/him reconcile with herself/himself because sometimes the reason why the person is vague and confusing is that they're not confident with themselves
9. Typically, when someone says to you: “I’ll be five minutes”, how long do they actually take? Around ten minutes! the words are commonly used by many and some are not serious with what they're saying.
10. For you, what is the best word in the English language? LOVE....


Holiday Overtime

It will be December next week and though I’m looking forward to our December camp meeting I’m not that excited about hubby’s work schedule. He’s assigned in their store’s branch in SM North Edsa and they will start a very busy schedule next week and that’s working from 10am up to 10pm on weekdays and up to 12midnight on weekends. Can you believe that? I’m so sad that businessmen think this way forcing employees to work for 12-14 hours without day off.

Some like it though because they can have bigger overtime pay but for me it’s abusing your body. They might end up sick before December ends. I’m glad that my office is not that peak during Christmas season which gives me time to prepare for our camp meeting one day ahead of our departure schedule. Anyway I should be checking the wine of the month club because I’m looking for lower alcohol content wine for our Communion, I need red wine with 5% alcohol content only.

:Wordless Wednesday - Old Wishing Pond

This is the old wishing pond at Manila Zoo which I found so old and looks unkept. The water is so dark makes me wonder if they ever clean the water around it. It's just a waste that they call it a wishing pond. My wish? Hope and wish the management will instruct their staff to clean this pond because it's not attractive anymore.

Happy Wordless to all! See my other entry!

Tours and Bus Charters

It’s really fun and fulfilling to spend your whole day with your kids even if it’s a school activity. We spent our weekend on an educational tour of my two girls, I accompanied them together with my youngest kid and my sister to help me with my three kids. The day promised a nice weather and I’m glad because some field trips are messed up with heavy rains. With our itineraries we can’t afford to have rains because most are outdoor tours and the final route is a resort. It’s good that the school hired a dependable tourist bus whatever happens we’re confident that the kids are in good hands with a good conditioned bus and a professional driver.

Our children are precious to us so good transportation accommodation should be perfect so we’ll be assured of a safety travel and careful driver. Now you can easily search and choose online for transportation requirements of your school, for your company or even for your private group. I came upon Charter Bus Rental NYC which specialize in providing deluxe quality coaches and courteous professional drivers that will bring you safely to wherever your destination is. They can give a comfortable and convenient trip when you book for their airport and hotel transfer. They have well maintained quality bus charters, good customer service and competitive price that can give better deals. You can save a lot if you’ll book for a group transfer and discounts are given on advance purchases. Go online now and see the difference!


Weekend Recap-Field Trip

Had a nice time with my three kids on our field trip last Saturday, it was actually the educational tour of my two daughters Gen and Ruth but Redge, Josh and I went with them for a real nice bonding time. Josh was the most excited as he counted the days before the scheduled date. I was a little frantic because I’ve got deadlines to meet and PPP was overflowing with opportunities last Friday before the field trip. It took me up to midnight to pack everything and cook all of our foods.

We arrived at the school 5am and the tour started at 6am. The tour itineraries are Manila Zoo, Gardenia Factory, Galinco Land – maker of Chips Delight, Luisa Ridge Resort and Melgian’s Sweets for our Buko Pie Making Demo.

Here are some pics of us in the field trip: (I’ll post some on my other blog)

Freelance Writing

The ability to write is both a talent and skill. There are people who are born with so rich ideas on their mind and the ability to put it into writing. This talent can be develop more if we took some time to improve it by reading and learning the craft of writing. If some were born to be writers, some acquired the talent from seriously studying, researching and reading a lot. Yes it can be developed into a more productive way of writing, let's say that it can give you a Freelance Writing Opportunities if you really want to exercise and enhance your talent. Good thing is you'll have flexible working schedule and writing could be fun and self-fulfilling.

We might never know where to put that writing skills but there are really companies who gives opportunities for those who want to write part-time or freelance.

They need writers because they offer custom writing service to customers who need assistance on their reports and essays.

This is a good opportunity for those who want to write but can’t report to office on regular hours and days. Their Job For Writers also offers great compensation for those who will qualify to their requirements. Application is easy, you just need to fillip application form and they will assess your qualifications. So if you’re fluent in English with excellent grammars, can write good content, can adhere to Academia’s terms you can start applying now.

Smart Buying

Everywhere you look now you can see that everyone is getting busy on the coming holiday season. To prevent rush on holiday some people have done their gift lists and finishing their shopping now. I should also be thinking on starting on my own but since I’m working it should be properly scheduled to maximize my time. Every mall I passed by I can see different sale going on boasting of discounted prices and discounts. We as shoppers must have the ability to check whether the prices are really competitive or not, after all we’re spending our hard-earned money and we must be a smart buyer.

:Toy Hunt:: Multi-Colored Toy/s

This is Josh' toy when he's one and two years of age, it was given by my hubby's sister Ate Zeny from G.B. This is an educational toy that makes learning a fun way to do. It teaches a child to recognize letters, shapes, numbers and of course the theme of this toy hunt the different colors. It was Josh' favorite when he's just a toddler because it also sings! Here's Josh reuniting with his old toy!

Trendy USB Flash Drive

I was browsing online for some essentials in my blogging such as laptop, flash drive and camera when I chanced upon holiday special offers. Actually I really need another USB flash drive so I can bring my files anywhere I go. I’m eyeing the 16GB flash drive because this will surely store my files and save some music and movies too. But look what I’ve found also – a fashionable mini USB in blue striped and purple dots stylish design, it’s so cute and very handy also!


School Meeting

I asked permission to take a halfday off my work to attend school meeting and to get my daughters’ cards but unfortunately the time that I said I was going I was asked to open my pc again and print some needed documents. It’s always like that - when the time came for me to leave he asks me for something. Anyway it’s just a coincidence but it happens to me always I think for the _th times.

I even joked about this meeting that closing prayer will be the only part in the meeting that I’ll be up to because of the delay. True to my word the parents were just about to go when I arrived. Luckily I was able to gather meeting information and was updated by my friends there. Since Gen has no problem whatsoever with any subject and teachers I don’t have to stay there long. Just peeked at Ruth’s room to talk to her adviser to discuss the letter that I did, I’m the PTA VP and acting as secretary too lol! I’m always the one who do memorandums, reminders and letters to parents for our PTA projects and miscellaneous concerns.


Cleansing Your Colon

I was told by my mom that my grandfather died of colon sickness. They were just informed by my grandfather that it was just an ulcer. Oh well he believes on herbal medicines and never want to go to a doctor. Maybe he’s not fully aware that it’s more than that. Nowadays there’s so many ways on how you can detect colon sickness and how to prevent and cure it. I just browsed Dual Action Cleanse site and I found out that it’s a formula of natural herbs which will aid in detoxifying your body. It’s a powerful colon cleanser that will surely cleanse your body. If only this was available then my grandpa would be happy to have it.


The Pink Sisterhood

The Breast Cancer Awareness month that is October is over now. But for me, every month should be cancer awareness month. If only to keep all women cautious of their health. For this, I am thanking Tita Bheng for passing this tag to me. I'm very much aware of this because my cousin died of breast cancer at the age of 31 and I felt that it was too young for her though I know that God has plans for her!

Report Annoying Calls

Have you experienced getting paranoid from getting calls from survey team that never ends? Or telemarketers that offers products and services you don’t need. It’s alright to get those calls when you’re not busy but if you’re concentrated on some important things these calls might waste your precious time. Now you can let your complaints be read by other people because at you can report phone numbers and post your comments about the calls you received. Isn’t it good to let others know about your dilemma about particular numbers? You’ll also be able to help others be aware of them.

Family Field Trip!

I got ready very early and went to school to pay for my daughters’ field trip activities on Saturday. Josh went with me as usual, he always come with me wherever I go lol! I was joking Josh on the way to school that maybe the reason why he accompanied me is that he wanted to make sure that I’ll pay for him too. Yes he’s coming also even if he’s not studying in the same school and my sister will go with us to help me with my kids. Hubby can’t file a leave from work because season for appliance store is at its peak. Nice that Redge can come with us. So we’re five all in all in my daughters’ field trip – looks like a family excursion!

Totally Free Credit Report

We should be aware of our finances, loan status and account balances. It’s a good thing for a person to be always vigilant of your records because you’ll never know when you’ll be hacked by identity thieves. There are many cases of unauthorized charging on credit cards, illegal account opening and the use of your loan privileges by unauthorized individuals. If you’re the type who don’t check records you’ll probably be the next victim of hackers. It’s better to be safe than sorry so you better get free credit score to update you of your loan balances, your complete credit records and your score.

It’s very easy to get it online at totally free credit report which provides free credit scores and reports you’ll ever need to check on your status on applying for loans or simply checking your transactions. You only have to fill up forms and in minutes you’ll have it. We must bear in mind that this is very important as credit score is the basis of lenders when someone is applying different loans.

There are ways in running credit score, it can be through the borrower or it can also be through the lenders, whoever wants to check on credit score. But I think we must be the one to check first our credit score so we can still make a solution if our records were hacked before the lenders will know of our score.


Wordless Wednesday - Don't Disturb!

Shhh! Don't Disturb! Josh at 3 months.

Kitchen Appliances

I love cooking since I’ve cooked my first menu on my fifth grade. My mom is a retired teacher and one of her subjects is Home Economics where she taught cooking, sewing and home management. She’s very fond of coming up with a newly invented cooked food the reason why her class always wins in the competition for original recipes. My mom was so fond of buying and collecting kitchen appliances and I got that fondness from her. Now that I’m a mother already I always try to pamper my kids and hubby with my cooking.

My first money earned from online work was spent on buying a gas range to replace our old one. Since then I’ve tried many recipes in cooking and baking using my new gas range. I love buying and looking at kitchen appliances but I don’t have time to walk on foot to search for the things I want. Instead I searched products online at Shopwiki to save time and effort.

Shopwiki offers complete lines of products for your kitchen. They have a long list of stores where you can find your desired kitchen appliances like microwave, stand mixer, refrigerator, slicer and many others. This so nice especially to working moms who haven’t had the time to explore and search on foot. Now we can all shop in the comforts of our home, shopping made easy!

Exercise and Diet Plan

I’ve been trying to look slimmer on my office clothes but no matter I hide my big tummy it keeps on showing. Maybe I should really be on my toes and start to slim down a bit. I should start to exercise in the morning and cut down half of my sweet desserts mostly chocolate which I love most. Actually I think I have to resort to green tea this time because it will also help my mild constipation. Some diet pill can help but I’ll do it after I’ve established discipline on my exercise and intake of less fatty foods.

Business and Vacation Trip

I was helping a friend in booking for her intended business trip and vacation all-in-one. She was scheduled to meet some people in Las Vegas for a partnership business and she told me that she wanted to stay in hotel in las vegas so she can have the convenience and comfort of staying in a nice hotel while doing her business. The business location will be in the Philippines but her partners wanted her to meet with them in their country because they have very tight schedule. Anyway it was an all-paid trip so my friend agreed and she can have a vacation also.

Securing Ourselves

Most people care about having their properties insured so if anything happens they will be secured that these properties will be replaced. Investing takes a great amount of money so people usually the upper class insure their precious house and lots, cars, businesses and other properties for safety purposes.

Security takes on a higher level if your own protection is at stake. So some people get term life insurance to secure not only themselves but their family’s welfare as well. They know that their family will not worry about money if something happens to them. It’s good to think about our future and security protection but we must also remember to secure our spiritual life because no matter what happens God has safely secured good people a place in heaven.


:Toy Hunt:: Toy/s With Legs

This is Mr. Simpsons, a RoboSapien in Homerstyle! This is a gift to Josh from Bes JennyL from her Australian vacation in JoyD's place. She gave this to Josh last April of this year and since that day Josh included it in his basket of favorite toys. He's been playing with this everyday.

He's so thrilled that the toy can walk and move his arms. Look at the legs, feels like the toy can walk a mile with strong and big legs huh! I have the latest photo of him now but I had problem with uploading photos so this will suffice for now until I solved the problem!

Happy Toy Hunting!! If you want to join and see other toys click HERE.

Capturing Special Moments

Having three growing kids give parents a lot of responsibility in all aspects of life. You have to give them everything that they need for them to grow healthy and strong. They also need proper education to equip them with knowledge and skills so they will get good jobs and can face life with confidence. Most importantly they need spiritual awareness and good breeding so they’ll grow up as good individuals with strong faith in God.

Hubby and I always keep in mind to teach them all they need to know guide them in all their school and social activities and give them all the love so they can love others also. Each day we thanked God for giving us the blessing of having our three angels in our life. In their special moments and occasions I tried to capture all memories so when they grew up they will remember the good memories of their childhood. I make it my hobby to catch special moments in my camera and save them in my PC and online storage. I’m trying my hands now on scrapbooking and use my kids’ pictures on them. I know they will like and cherish it.

Zenni On Fox!

I’ve been wearing eyeglasses for several years now since I was in college. I’ve tried different styles that go with the fashion of the current times like wearing glasses with pink tint because that’s the latest among girls my age or wearing gold plated glasses to suit my new look when I had my first office job. Actually I’ve tried a lot but most of them were really expensive during those days. I would have liked stylish Great Eyeglasses For Less like what I saw in Zenni Optical.

Zenni offers quality eyeglasses at very affordable prices and have you heard about Zenni on Fox? The reporter looks into their claim of having the most affordable prescription glasses online that’s why Zenni Optical was on FOX news! It’s true that Variable Dimension Frames From Zenni is available online at the best deal you can have in the market. I’m glad that now we can have quality, style and economy all in one eyeglasses.
