New Year

Two more days and we will bid goodbye to 2008. We never know what may the year 2009 brings us but what is certain is that we learned some things from the past that makes us a better person. The past years surely had thought us few hard lessons in life which will guide us to become better whenever the new year comes. Well now, a new year is nearly coming again and it will be another journey for all of us. We maybe have success or failures, no one knows. But-well what may the future brings us only God knows. The important thing is that we never lost faith on Him and that we never forget to serve Him as its the ultimate purpose of our existence. Anyways, wishing you all a very Bless and Happy New Year.

Last Minute Shopping

Undoubtedly, there is still a lot of people who do last minute Christmas shopping nowadays. I have observed that when i was in the mall earlier. As i have seen, the most busiest place is the grocery area where many people are trying to do last minute food shopping for the coming noche buena. Well, its really tiring to shop on the last minute as you will only suffer from long lines when paying and traffic as well. However, people have their own reason why they've end up shopping on the last minute. So as for a tip when doing last minute shopping is that you make a list of the important things you need to buy so that you will not end up wasting time roaming around and have nothing in the end. This is one way to manage your time wisely when doing last minute shopping.

New Templates

I just pimp my profile yesterday. Not sure though if this will be the final template that i will be using for this blog but as for now i am satisfied as how it looks. Actually, it took me so long to choose this since there is thousand to choose from pimp-my-profile. I have tried a lot but i end up for this one because it's clean and simple. But-well of course there's still something lacking and that's what i'm trying to find out in the next couple of days. I know there is still a lot to update. Anyways, there are still a lot of nice templates to try or maybe if learn how do create my own then it will be much nicer.

Diet Pill

I have tried taking diet pill the other month. That was when i desperately want to lose weight. Well, i was hoping that it would help me. Now my experience was not really good when i tried Lesofat. I saw the advert on tv just when i'm thinking about losing some extra pounds on my belly. It was very timing then so i tried without researching it first on the net. At first, i thought it didn't work for me because i only took one capsule just for a try and it was 4 days since i took it i never felt anything like discharge or discomfort. So i assume it didn't even affect me.

Anyways, little did i know that the effect on me started right after 4 days. Remember the post i made about my swelling back and hips. Gosh! that was the painful side effects on me. I was really in terrible pain like i almost think of going to a Doctor for a check up. I am not sure why did i have that side effects because according to other people experience which i have read on the net is that you will only have waste discharge which is true but being in terrible pain like what i experience is really unexpected. However, i could say that it is true that it takes off those oil and fats in your body through waste discharge. I would like to try it again but i guess i'm too scared to feel that same terrible pain i've experienced.

My Horoscope

Reading inspiring thoughts really helps boost one's confidence. Just like what i feel after reading the Friendster Horoscope of Leo ( Jul-23-August 22) . My horoscope today is very inspiring and this is what it said;

The Bottom Line

Take a more difficult route than everyone else. A hard journey rewards handsomely.

In Detail

You are learning to appreciate the fact that when a goal is too easy to attain, it is not as valuable as something that takes your sweat and toil to reach. So don't hesitate to take a more difficult route than everyone else is taking. They might get there faster or more easily, but they are not going to learn as much from the experience. And in the end, your journey will reward you. Your newfound pride will feed your ego and get you noticed by the people who matter.

The thoughts is indeed helpful and its very inspiring not only for me but for all people.

It's not a bad day after all...........

It was a big mess today, not me or someone but it's our house. We have to get fix the bathroom and Dad has decided to furnish it as well so no one has the chance to used it yet at the moment. We haven't got the chance to even have a bath. The whole day of waiting feeling hot, dirt and sticky due to sweat is really not a good feeling. I couldn't even make myself work feeling uncomfortable but it was not bad after all at least i took my bath later afternoon when the worker gone home. It was a relief feeling refresh. The water is cold and it was really refreshing. Got back my mood and i feel much better. I had made special dinner for all of us since its my sister's birthday. Little nieces have fun playing and we had the chance to chat with sister-in-law at least for couple of hours before they go home. Just simple celebration really....not that extravagant. Well it was not a bad day after all.

Swelling Back and Hips

Just finished watching Miss Conginality movie of Miss Sandra Bullock. I had a good laugh at it. I suddenly forgot the swelling pain of my back and upper hips ..... but now talking about it i'm feeling it again. I'm sure it will give me hard painful time afterwards on bed. This pain makes me suffered for couple of days now. It comes and it goes and it is really painful. I was thankful i had this liniment named Pau de Arco. It helps me though at least subside the pain. I was kinda worried of this for a while. Well i hope it's nothing too serious to worry about. Anyways, just sharing. I will try to have some good sleep.....i hope..cross my fingers.. that's if the little boy next door won't cry like hell again and wake me up just when i fall asleep. Well i hope so because i badly need my sleep.

Cream-O Biscuit and Cup Noodles .............

All alone but not home alone. It is just quite as all are already sleeping. My insomnia strikes me again and now found myself browsing around here. I guess the opportunity are hard to catch as well and it's very unpredictable this days. I was thinking maybe that would help me make busy for a while and will make me feel tired i hope but unfortunately there's nothing to work on. I've only got myself here a Cream-O biscuit and a cup noodles that my sister brought here from Japan. It's the last cup so its like a treat to myself since i always have little nieces to share it when they are around most of the time. Well, don't get me wrong here. I love sharing it with them but sometimes you have to keep something for yourself too and besides they are all sleeping now . Oh well, I guess i have to finish it now while its hot.

Don't Wear New Shoes During Christmas

Christmas is nearly coming and as early as now people are starting to prepare. People will surely have new things for themselves to wear or use on Christmas. Now i had this tip forwarded on me. I am not sure if this is true but i will share it anyway. This is the tip;

"If you have new shoes that you'd like to show off, wear them before or after Christmas."

Maybe you wonder why? According to the source, it is unlucky (malas) to wear new shoes during Christmas. Oh well didn't know about that but i leave it all to you if you believe or not.

Kitchen Tips: How to Remove the Smell of Garlic on your Fingers

We all know that cooking is really fun thing to do but sometimes we hate to prepare ingredients like garlic because it leaves a very strong smell in our hands. Well, this is not going to be a problem anymore because there is one technique i learned to get rid of those smell in you hand after cooking.

The technique is after soaping your hands, touch anything that made of stainless steel like the sink, bowl or knife while rinsing under running water or simply wash some spoons as you wash your hands. That's it, the garlic odor will be gone.

The weather is really unpredictable for this past few days. Sometimes it's too hot and later on it rains. The hot weather is surprisingly not good as it really really hot for me. I don't feel like this before when it's hot like in summer but it is really different nowadays. Sometimes i can't help to think that our ozone layer that protects us from too much heat of the sun is really bad now and it starting to show signs or maybe because i have gained few pounds that's why my body reacts but i guess i much believe 90 % is because of the ozone layers situation. I think we have to help each other on saving planet earth because we know that we are the main reason why it was destruct. If we don't act then we have to suffer the consequences it may result in the future. We need to get back the beauty of the nature as soon as possible before it's too late.

Worm's on Chocolate

Do you love to eat chocolates? Well, i am not sure if you will ever like to eat one after knowing this. I couldn't really believe it myself since it was a very well known chocolate. Yesterday, my sister-in-law visit us and brought a bar of chocolate that she bought at her friend which happen to be working in the factory of the chocolate.

I haven't eat a piece of it yet since i was out for an interview but when i got home they told me that they brought me a chocolate. There was half left on the freezer since they've already eat the half earlier. Later that evening, i have eaten a piece of it and left some for my mum.

When i wake up the day after, my mum told me what she saw on the chocolate. She was about to eat it when she saw worms on it. Oh gross! I want to puke. I haven't noticed it that there was worms because i just eat it without looking. Oh well, i am not really that affected since i've only eaten a bit of it but still it's really disgusting to think about it. I don't think i will ever eat that same chocolate again.

Very Special Love

I can't help smiling whenever i remember the movie i watched earlier. It is a tagalog movie in titled "Very Special Love". It was funny and inspiring. I love the personality of the lady and of course the story itself as well as the life story of the guy is very touching.

I just realized something about one scene there wherein the guy was crying in front of his father and said

"Why i can't feel that you love me" the father said "it's because you have so much pain in your heart son, that's why and I am sorry that it's me who caused that pain. If i could undo things and correct it, i would still choose you to be my son because i am proud of you and i love you very much"

The guy was longing for love and trying all his life to prove himself to the first family of his father....Oh it was very touching really and of course it ended happily. Nevertheless, I have learned something from it and that is letting go of the pain in our heart in order to move on and live a happy life.

All in all the story was funny though it is not a comedy movie. You will really laugh and can't help smiling when you remember it afterwards. Anyways, i was just sharing some few of my short thoughts right at this very moment. I will be back soon for more updates.

For Sale Chorizo

One of my close friend came earlier to visit me and she had something for sale. It is a meat process food called Chorizo which she and her friend made. She just tried to made it for extra income. Well, i had tried a sample and it taste good but i didn't buy this time as i am out of budget but definitely i will next time. It just reminds me of my high school days when we used to do that as our project in one of our cooking class.

I decided to made a vegetable menu for our dinner. I just feel we need it since it is very nutritious. We've been eating dry menus lately so definitely my family would love to have vegetables for a change. It is called Pinakbet. It has 5 different kinds of vegetable in it so it is a very healthy food. It's my father's favorite and i am sure he will definitely appreciate it.

I got a Souvenir

I got a new key chain from my best friend Mom which originally give by her sister who just flew back here from work abroad. I was kinda late to visit them so that is why there's no "pasalubong" left for me. I told them it's not necessary and it's no need but still Auntie Delia give me something which is the key chain. I accept it and i appreciate their thoughtfulness. I am thankful and like the souvenir very much. It is a little shape fan that came from EspaƱa and i love it as if i went BTW! It's really from Spain because her sister is working on a cruise ship and she already explore some countries mostly in Europe. She had a lot of small souvenirs as well that she put at the door of their fridge and 3 little replica ships that she have work.

Smokin Toppings

My loving fiance told me that i am in a good mood maybe because of all the chicken and pizza that i have eaten this week....hehehe.

I'd got my favorite chicken menu.

I suddenly felt that i am craving for pasta, pizza, spicy chicken and macaroni. I am looking for the taste of it.

We had eaten at Greenwhich Pizza and we have choosen the big time meal which composes of pasta, pizza, chicken, macaroni and ice tea ....Whew! it is really a big meal and it was really satisfying.

First Post

I was kinda bored today maybe that's why i am here now writing my very first post for my new blog. I'm not really sure what to write though but i guess a short thoughts would be fine. I was hoping to find worthy things to do online. Something that interest me but i guess my thoughts are somewhere. I think i have been browsing for almost 2 hours now and yet it doesn't satisfied me as to what i really want to do. Anyways, i guess i just wanted someone to talk to but unfortunately i had no one here so i was thinking this may help me somehow.
