I Need To Relax!

I've been very busy these past days. Symone's final exams ended last week. Symone and I was very busy reviewing and at the same time my son Liam was sick for four days. Summer has finally started this week. Hubby will be having his holy week vacation and I am so excited to spend more quality time with my family. I told hubby that I really need to relax a little. I wanted to have a massage but having a massage these days can be very expensive. Hubby told me to look for an educational dvd about massage so that we can both learn and later on apply it on ourselves to save money. Hubby and I love to go to massage parlors to unwind and relax. Lucky me, I found this educational dvd that has stone massage video, breast massage and hand reflexology

Here's the teaser of the educational dvd about massages

What's For Lunch?

Hubby has been telling me to cook PININYAHANG MANOK (Pineapple Chicken) ages ago. I don't have any idea how to cook it so last night, hubby said to look for it on the net and so glad I've found it. There were so many versions of this food but I stick with the most simple and easy to follow recipe that I found at GROUP RECIPES

Here are the ingredients and the step by step procedure on how to cook it just in case you want to try it out for yourself.

Pininyahang Manok Pineapple Chicken Recipe


Ingredients
  • 1 whole chicken, cut into serving pieces
  • 1 can pineapple chunks, set aside the syrup
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium-sized onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk or coconut milk
  • patis (fish sauce), to taste

Directions
  1. Marinade the chicken with the pineapple syrup for a few minutes.
  2. Pour the chicken with the marinade in a pot, cook until the marinade evaporates and the chicken is lightly brown. (You’re not exactly frying the chicken–you just want to seal in the juices.)
  3. When done, set aside the chicken on one side of the pot.
  4. Add the oil, saute garlic and onions then mix together with the lightly browned chicken and cook for about a minute.
  5. Add the pineapple chunks then pour the evaporated milk. Cover and bring to a simmer. (If you are using coconut milk, do not cover, otherwise it will curdle).
  6. By the time the chicken is done, the sauce would be rather thick and creamy, stir then season with patis.
  7. Simmer again for 2 minutes then turn-off the heat.
Best serve with steamed rice.

Here is the Pinanyahang Manok that I cooked for lunch which made my Hubby's day.

Hubby told me that the taste was good.... hmmm... not bad for my first shot n this food.

All About Perfume

I have this passion for perfumes. Ever since I was little I love to have a cologne or perfume on my little bag. Now that I am all grown up and already a mother I tend to splurge on perfumes. I love to collect different colognes and perfumes and sometimes I forgot to wear some of them. I was cleaning my stuffs last night and found out that I still have several unopened boxes of perfumes.

My all time favorite perfume is Clinique's Happy. This was the same perfume that I used during my wedding. I love floral scents so much.

If you happen to be a lover of scent like me, visit this new site called Talk Perfume. Trust me, it'll be worth you time.

Cool Contest and a New MacBook Air

I've been hooked on the net for years now. I love surfing through different sites and I love playing online games. I've started blogging last year right after I gave birth. I am now addicted to blogging and I love meeting new friends in this blogging world. Hubby then decided to buy me a laptop for my own convenience. I can now blog wherever and whenever I want while taking care of my kids. It was just last night, while checking my email, my laptop suddenly crashed. I dont know what happened. It won't turn on again. I am so worried and told hubby to get it fixed. I miss my laptop and I hope it can still be fixed and repaired. I am now using our desktop pc and I realized how comfortable it is having a laptop. I am now looking for a new laptop with high specs and reasonable price. I am so happy that I bumped into this site. They are currently having a contest that is so easy to join. Guess what's at stake? a new MacBook Air courtesy of the generous serial entrepreneur ben behrouzi. The rules of this contest is very simple. Just send him a simple tweet on twitter with a message to count you in on the said laptop giveaway. One lucky follower will be selected on March 31st.

I just hope to win this very exciting contest. If you want to join this contest come and drop by at Ben's site now before it's too late. To all those who joined (like me!) good luck to us!

FLU No More

"Seize the day, but never choke on the bone" A famous saying that holds true to a lot of people who manage to enjoy life to the fullest. For some, being young and "feeling" healthy would mean an "eternal" license to a healthy and worry-free living.

Little did we know that life is not about fairy tales. Yes it can be true that being young would mean a lesser chance for us to be sick but not in all circumstances.

With these that I would like to share a very classic example of a someone who manages to keep and maintain a healthy living but still is very vulnerable to being sick.

I am a 33 year old married woman who practices a clean and healthy living. As much as temptations would entice me all the time (i.e. chocolates, ice cream, grilled meats, processed meats, etc), I kept - and still am - struggling to keep my head up and focus on what's healthy (although not very tasty all the time :-). But despite of all the precautions and techniques in being healthy, I am still prone and vulnerable to a lot of "knee-bending" factors. These are factors that are nature-related, environmental-affected and unforeseen realities of life.

As a mother of two kids, I would definitely go to hell and back just to shield my children from anything which might harm them. But sometimes and due to some unavoidable circumstances and despite of all the precautions that one takes, whether we like it or not, we can still get sick. Like this one instance, actually a couple of weeks back, my two kids got sick. They had a high fever and cough. I was so worried because this was the first time that my kids got Trangkaso at the same time. I rushed them to the nearest hospital and they were diagnosed to have a Flu. This incident made me realize that it's about time that I should take action regarding Influenza. Having flu is no joke. Since times are hard nowadays and medicines are expensive, a mother like me should find ways in preventing this thing to happen to my family again. We went to my kid's pediatrician to ask about the Flu vaccine. Our doctor gave my eldest her Bakuna using VAXIGRIP. It is said that flu vaccines shots should be taken annually and upon knowing that Influenza is indeed a serious disease, my family will definitely have these vaccines against flu yearly to lessen the chances and impact of flu on us. I know that being Bakunado will be such a relief for a mother like me who wanted only the best for her family.

In these modern times Flu can now be easily prevented by having vaccines. Sanofi-Pasteur is a dedicated organization in fighting Flu and is now having it's Bakunado sa Flu campaign here in the Philippines. To know more about this campaign just visit http://www.bakuna.ph

Raptiva... A Deadly Drug

Health is wealth. Being healthy is one's treasure. Due to so many reasons and some unavoidable circumstances, we are all prone to diseases and when we are sick we tend to take medicines. Taking medicines has it's side effects. Some medicines has a negative side effects to our body. Like this medicine that claims to cure psoriasis, a chronic, non-contagious autoimmune disease which affects the skin and joints. Raptiva is the drug that I am talking about. The US Food and Drug is currently investigating about this drug for psoriasis. This drug has a possible link to a very rare and deadly brain infection which is called progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). It has been reported that two people who took this medicine developed Raptiva PML and died. This deadly drug is somewhat associated to some medical conditions such as meningitis, immune-mediated hemolytic anemia, and other life-threatening infections. Upon knowing this issue I thought of the people who took this drug for sometime now. They should be aware of the Raptiva side effects that they might get in the future. We must spread the word about this especially to the people who are suffering from psoriasis. For better understanding and knowledge about this harmful drug and their legal rights against the manufacturer of Raptiva, visit this site... http://www.youhaverights.com/dangerous-drugs/raptiva

Safe Beauty Products For Pregnants

I've been pregnant for two times already and I must admit that it was not easy. I've been through so much when I was pregnant. I remember that I cannot have my yearly hair re-bond done because my doctor told me that it might have side effects on me and my growing baby. I also remember that I could not use my usual beauty products just to make sure that my baby will be well while inside my tummy.

When I was pregnant I had pimples. I am not used on having pimples so I am quite bothered about it but I have left with no choice but to let it come and go naturally. I cannot apply moisturizers, toners and other products that will help me with my pimples. I am too afraid to use such beauty and health products which I know might affect my child's growth.

I just wish that I learned about the Beaute de Maman when I was pregnant. It caters to pregnant women who needs medication for their beauty problems during pregnant. They have a complete line of beauty products that was developed by board certified obstetrician specifically to treat the problems which might occur when a woman is pregnant due to some physiological and hormonal changes. These beauty and health products are proven 100% safe for the mother and the little one that she is carrying. All these products are made from natural and herbal ingredients. They offer beauty product like stretch mark creams, nipple gel, facial scrubs and others.

So if you are pregnant and having beauty problems order now and try this products which is safe for you and your baby.

Rules From God For 2009

Got this email and I thought that this is what we needed to face what life has for us this 2009.

Rules from God for 2009
Rules from God for 2009
1. Wake Up !!
Decide to have a good day.
"Today is the day the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it" Psalms 118:24
2. Dress Up !!
The best way to dress up is to put on a smile. A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks. "The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at outward appearance; but the Lord looks at the heart."
I Samuel 16:7
3. Shut Up!!
Say nice things and learn to listen. God gave us two ears and one mouth, so He must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking. "He who guards his lips guards his soul." Proverbs 13:3

4. Stand Up!!...
For what you believe in. Stand for something or you will fall for anything.. "Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as w e have opportunity, let us do good..." Galatians 6:9-10
5. Look Up !!...
To the Lord.
"I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me."

Philippians 4:13

6. Reach Up !!...
For something higher. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, And He will direct your path."
Proverbs 3:5-6

7. Lift Up !!...
Your Prayers.
"Do not worry about anything;

Instead PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING."
Philippians 4:6




God answers prayer.

Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once
