Thank You

Thank You Pictures, Images and Photos

To all of you who remembered my birthday...Maraming Salamat, Thank You! It really made my day more than just perfect! It made me realize that there is more to life than being bothered by nonsense issues. It also made me realize that despite of all the things that happened there's still people who stood by me and believes in the truth.

Thanks to mama, papa and mimi for raising me. Thanks for being with me for the past 33 years and always remember that I will be forever grateful for the values that you teach us.

To ella, I love you dearly and thanks for everything!

To hubby thanks for everything.... no words can describe how lucky I am having you in my life. You and our children has been my strength and inspiration especially these past months.

To all of you who made my life so damn miserable these past months, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you! ( I know that few of you reads my blog ) Thanks for making me realize the real meaning of family, the real meaning of love and the real meaning
of myself.

I am tough, I have faith and I have my God.... God's divine justice will soon prevail... I know that my birthday is the right time for me to celebrate because I already won the battle.

My 33rd Birthday

A few more minutes and I'll be turning 33 already. My gosh! I'm old! but honestly never did I feel old ever, hehehe!

Hubby and I prepared a special dinner for my family and my in-laws on Sunday. I'll be cooking the dinner but up to know I still have no idea what to cook. I asked hubby for food suggestions but he told me that I should decide since I will be the one who will cook.

Tomorrow, I'll be pampering myself... yipee! I'll be having a foot and hand spa.I'm really so excited! I'll be having a nice and relaxing Swedish massage also.

I'll keep this blog updated as to what other plans might come up for my birthday.


Yoiks, I lost my files!

Ye, it can happen ... and our first reaction is a blank stare that says "What do I do now?" ... and then, we kick ourselves "Why didn't I backup my files?"


Thursday, October 23, 2008


I've been out of the blogosphere for two days. My internet connection was lost for 48 hours. SmartBro really sucks! They told hubby that there was something wrong with their system and connection will be up after 24 hours. It's good thing that I installed my most loved game THE SIMS2 again. I really miss this game. Hubby bought it's newest expansion pack called APARTMENT LIFE. Imagine I slept 5am this morning because of this game. Here's a video about the Sims2:APARTMENT LIFE

Anyway, I just got my connection this morning, thank God and I am ONLINE again!

Proud Mommy Moment

Hubby had an appointment with Symone's teacher this morning. They will be releasing my daughter's report card. My daughter worked hard for this quarter. I've seen how eager she was in doing her assignments.

Hubby just arrived and we were so happy that Symone's grades improved a lot. She got a 96% average quite high compared to her 92% average last quarter . I'm so happy! hard work pays! I'm so proud of my little girl...

I asked my daughter what she wants..... guess what she said? a baby sister! HAHAHA!

This another proud mommy moment for me!

Want to be a Medical Assistant?

I have always loved to work in a hospital or clinics. I love to help patients. I've been in and out of the hospital and my doctor's clinic a couple of years back due to my gallstones (which by the way was removed already) I somewhat envy these medical assistants and if I could only be one of them I would definitely love it. But I know that being a medical assistant is not that easy. You have to learn and educate yourself with some administrative and clinical tasks to keep the health practitioners/doctors offices and clinics run smoothly.

A medical assistant, as far as I know and learned, updates and file patients’ medical records, fill out insurance forms, and arrange for hospital admissions and laboratory services. They communicate directly to the patients. They also perform tasks less specific to medical settings, such as answering telephones, greeting patients, handling correspondence, scheduling appointments, and handling billing and bookkeeping. They have to be efficient because the offices or clinics depends on them. Medical Assistants is somewhat the secret behind the success of every medical offices.

It's a good thing that you can find a medical assistant school online that offers courses more affordable than any other school online. You can finish your course at your own convenient time since they have no deadlines. It is like studying without having pressures. So if you want to be a medical assistant check out St. Augustine School of Medical Assistants now and start making a difference in your career.

For Our Information

The whole world is scared of China made "black hearted goods". Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or China? Let me tell u...the first 3 digits of barcode 690,691 and 692 are MADE IN CHINA . 471 is Made in Taiwan .


This is our human right to know, but the government and related department never educate the public, therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves.

Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products "made in china", so they don't show from which country it is made.

However, you may now refer to the barcode, remember if the first 3 digits is:

690-692 CHINA

00 ~ 09 USA & CANADA

30 ~ 37 FRANCE

40 ~ 44 GERMANY

49 - JAPAN

50 - UK

Thanks to Trine for this info

Fall 2008 TV: dNeero-ites want to know

Many, many good questions from dNeero-ites about TV shows and viewing habits ... '24', House, genre, time, hi-def ... we'll do more in future convos.


An Answered Prayer

My son will be turning 9 months old this month. He's been super active and he's starting to walk, stand by himself and crawl around everywhere. I'm having a hard time doing my usual household chores whenever he is awake. He is also starting to mess around with his foods and his toys where all around the house because he loves to throw everything.

It's a good thing that I saw this PopATot Homepage. It is a must for mothers who has a very active toddler to own this portable baby activity center. It is collapsible so you can bring it practically everywhere. It is the safest thing we can put our child on. It is proven and tested. This PopATot is made up of polyester and has a 2 layers of fabric for a cool design and for it's much added strength in holding up with your babies. It can also be washed and used again and again whenever your child spills on his foods or milk.

Check out because they are currently holding a PopATot tester program and they are giving away hundreds of this portable activity center for the users to try it out for themselves and for them to review and give feedback.

It is definitely a must have for me and I can't wait to own one. It is definitely an answered prayer of a mother like me.



I'll be turning 33 on the 25th.... yep! i'll be having my birthday. It'll be only two weeks from now but I have no definite plans yet as to where to celebrate it or if I'm going to celebrate it.... hehehe! It all depends to hubby.... (hope he'll read this post)

With just a thought of me turning 33 made me realize how my life has been. I'm glad that life has been very good to me. I am more than contented with all the blessings that God is giving me and my family.

I'll keep this blog posted as to what plans that I will have for my upcoming birthday.

Glasses at Zenni

I started wearing glasses since I was 10 years old. I cannot leave the house without my good old glasses. Since my old glasses was broken already I've been in a hunt of an eyeglasses that is cheap but has a very good quality. I've been looking and searching online until I found this site, Zenni Optical that sells stylish prescription eyeglasses for only 8$ They have a wide selection of stylish frames with single vision lens, sunsensor (potochromic) lens, tinted sunglasses lens, bifocal lens and progressive lens, all with anti-scratch protection,UV protection and many more. No wonder that the popular talk radio host of the nationally syndicated consumer advocate program The Clark Howard Show, even recommended Zenni Optical.

Zenni Optical has new frames that just arrived, I looked at the frames and I saw one that I love to have. It is a Plastic full rim frame. It is very stylish and I find it very very pretty. It comes with different colors to choose from, Burgundy outside, Raspberry inside; Brown outside, Yellow inside; or Black outside, Blue inside; Black outside, Red inside; or Black. It is only $8 so it means I can still buy a few more nice frames for my mom and dad.
