Why wedding ring should be put on the fourth finger??
Thumb represents parents
Second finger represents brothers & sisters
Center finger represents own self
Fourth finger represents your partner
Last finger represents your children
Why wedding ring should be put on the fourth finger??
Pls read the following, you may not believe that really god made this a miracle (this is from a Chinese excerpt) but still interesting!
Firstly, join your palms as shown in photo below, center finger bend and put together back to back
Secondly, let the rest of the 4 fingers touch tips to tip
Game begins, follow the instructions below for all the 5 fingers but only 1 pair can split.
Try to open your thumb, the thumb represents parents, it can be opened because all human being do go thru sickness and death. Whoever may be, our parents will leave us one day.
Open up your little finger, this represents your children. Sooner or later they too will leave us for they got they own living to live nevertheless, close up your little finger,
Try to open your fourth finger in which we put our wedding ring; you will be surprised to find that it cannot be opened at all. Because it represents husband and wife, this whole life you will be attached to each other
Real love will stick together ever and forever. . . ..........
Now that I just gave birth a couple of months back, I cannot do my usual hunting and shopping for authentic pearls anymore. It's a good thing that somebody introduced me to this site that sells freshwater pearl necklace. I know that shopping online has so many risk but with this site all their pearls are guaranteed 100% authentic and genuine. The have a wide array of akoya saltwater pearls and fresh water pearls. I also learned that their pearl jewelries are carefully handpicked and hand knotted. I browsed their gallery of jewelries and trust me.... you'll be amaze at how beautiful their bracelets, earrings and necklaces are. I really can't wait to buy one of their black pearl necklace that I spotted while browsing their jewelry catalog. They sell at a very reasonable price and prices are guaranteed to be the lowest you can find online.
I also found out that they are offering a 5% discount just by joining the discount club , and mind you, this discount club is free to join, cool huh!? and one more good news for their buyers .... they are offering free shipping worldwide.
No question about the quality of the item that you are paying for because as they say " WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU PAY". If in any case or reasons that you are not satisfied with the items that you purchased (which I know you'll love!) they will be giving back your money, no questions asked or whatsoever.
Got to go now and I think that it is much better to visit the site yourself to learn more by asking their pearl expert for free. Happy shopping everyone!!
My Liam just turned 8 months today. Just wanna share with you his latest pics. I'm so happy seeing this little boy grows. May he will always be healthy and strong. I love every little things about this boy and I am so thankful that God has blessed our family with this little bundle of joy
There's no doubt about it.... he really looks like me! hehe!

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. -- Washington Irving (1783-1859)

From Wikipedia.com: "Popular music is music belonging to any of a number of musical styles that are accessible to the general public and are disseminated by one or more of the mass media."
Honestly, I haven't heard of this duo, MOYMOY PALABOY since last week. My brother in law told me to search their videos on youtube. They are already mainstays in one of the gag show here in the Philippines. I oh so love them... they can make me laugh like there's no tomorrow... HAHAHA!

Heres the pictures that I was talking about... my pictures before and after delivering my son.
A few days more and my sister Ella will be back home. We've waited for more than a year! we miss her so much and we can't wait to be with her again. I'm sure my kids are so excited especially my daughter Symone to see their Tita Ella again. If I could only fast forward the time I would definitely will.... I miss my sister very much and I'm so excited to be with her again.

This is my first time ever to join the weekly fest at PMC. This week's fest is being sponsored by
Pinaymama's Diary, A Mother's Journal, Simple Life, Simply Me and Pinay in States
Anyways, this week's theme is to post a sort of before and after pictures. Pictures of before and after marriage. So here is my entry..... The first photo was taken May 1998. It was taken right after a movie date I guess. We've been going out for only a year then. The next photo was taken last April '08 right after our son's christening.
We've been together for 11 years now and I know that we will still be spending more and more years with each other and with our two little angels.
