Blogging On To The Next Level

I have been blogging for almost two years now and so far so good. I love blogging so much and I love the thought of sharing a part of me online. I blog about almost everything and anything. I blog about my daily life and my daily adventures as a homemaker. I blog about my duties as a mother and as a wife. Until when will my blogging last? that I cannot tell but I know for sure that I'll be blogging as long as I can.

I currently have 3 blogs. I have a blog for my children, another blog for my online interest and this blog that is practically about everything about me. Since I love blogging, I want to take this blog addiction of mine to the next level. I recently bought my other blogs their own domain and I ordered some makeovers for them as well. Now, I've been thinking of finally having a web hosting services for my 3 blogs. I checked on the pros and cons of having a web hosting service and I truly consider having one for my blogs. I learned that having your own web host has so many benefits. So if you want to take your website to the next level consider having a web host and it'll definitely satisfy your needs and wants for your site. I visited and true enough, this site gave me so many informations on different webhosting service available. Check out this article for some helpful ideas about web hosting


My Song

It's past 3am and I am having an insomnia attack. I tried drinking milk but I am still not yet sleepy. I have nothing else to do so I decided to browse some videos on youtube. I saw this music video which reminded me of my younger days. I love this song so much and every time I hear this song it gives me a relaxing and stress free mood.

Anyway, just found out that Mike Francis died last January 30, 2009 due to lung cancer.

Stem Cell Preservation For Our Future

If only I can turn back the time, I would definitely change so many things in my life. Our family has a history of diabetes. My grandmother had it and my mother is now under medication in controlling her diabetes. Mom was diagnosed with diabetes last year and since then everything has changed. Mom has to check her blood sugar levels every month and she has to take many pills every day. I know that having a diabetes is a possibility for me and my sister. As early as now we must take precautions and try to live a healthy lifestyle. If only we knew about the stem cell preservation earlier, my mother could have been totally freed from this deadly disease. Stem cell which is extracted from the menstrual blood can now be preserved and it has the capability to cure diseases such as diabetes, cancer and even leukemia. Women should consider having their stem cell preserved for their own future. We must be prepared on what the future holds for us. C'elle specializes with the stem cell preservation and if we are truly concerned with our health let's do something about it now. C'elle now offers an affordable way in protecting our future.

Cooking With Symone

I had a real good time with my daughter Symone this afternoon. She wanted me to cook her favorite "fish tempura" for dinner. I went to the grocery and bought all the ingredients for the food. As I was preparing the ingredients, Symone told me that she wants to help me. So I let her help me. We made a lot of fish tempura and she was the one who coats the fish with the breading. I know how much she enjoyed our little time doing things together. She told me that she wants to be a chef when she grows up. As soon as Hubby came from work, our little Symone told her daddy how she made the fish tempura and she told hubby that she was so tired cooking. Here are some pictures of us.....

My Little One... so busy coating the fish with bread crumbs

The fruit of Symone's hardwork.... FISH TEMPURA WITH GARLIC-MAYO DIP...YUMMY!


SpitzTunes -- Boyle-n' Over!

Let's suspend all those User Questions about 'what's your favorite genre', 'who's your favorite singer', 'do you like the xyz group' 'can you live without music' ... instead, please get into the conversation, understand it, feel it, think about it, and ask a question that applies to your life, your network. Here are some examples of what I consider a really good User Questions from our most recent SpitzTunes: "Do you think powerful concert mania equates to great singers?" "Do you enjoy outdoor summer concerts or do you find them packed and crazy?" "How much would you pay for a ticket to see Michael Jackson in concert?" "When does mania go over the top?"

New Bed

Hubby and I decided to buy a new bed for us and the kids. I personally wanted a bed that is big enough for us and I plan to buy a king size bed. My daughter wants to buy a double deck bed / bunk bed. I saw an online store that sells rustic furniture . Honestly, I love their designs and it gave me an idea on what I wanted to have. I showed hubby their bedroom furniture and hubby agreed that this is the design that we would definitely like to have. Aside from the design, I am sure on their products durability and quality.


Being Passionate

What Type of Passionate Woman Are You?

Your Passion is Purple!

You've got a ton of passion, but you don't always wear it on your sleeve.

If something truly excites you, you let your inner intensity shine through.

But otherwise, your passion tends to morph into energy ... which you never lack.

You're a balanced woman, knowing when to turn on the fire in your heart.

Our Sunday

Happy Sunday everyone! As usual I've spent my Sunday with my family. We had dinner and lunch together. It was raining so hubby decided that we should just stay at home. The kids slept in the afternoon and I cleaned the house. A friend called up and told me that her husband lost his job as an executive assistant. My friend was so sad and worried about their growing financial financial needs. I just told her to pray and let God do the rest. I pity her so much. I told her to tell her husband to look for a job online. There are so many Executive Search Firm that could help her husband. A lot of reliable people are offering help and advices for executives in finding a suitable job. I've read somewhere that Dennis C Carey is a well-respected executive search professional and he talks about executive search and recruitment on his website. Check out Dennis Carey's profile here.

I just hope and wish that my friend's husband will soon find a job for my friend and their children.


Happy Sunday

Being Healthy

Being healthy is my ultimate goal for me and my family. When I turned 30 a couple of years back I realized that I should be more cautious on how I am living my life. I became more aware of my health. At the age 30, I had my gallbladder removed and I have left with no choice but to live a healthy lifestyle or else I am putting my own life at risk. I want to learn about disease symptoms and be aware of it's early treatment and cures. At this age and time, there are so many ways of preventing sickness and deadly diseases. One can take different vitamins and food supplements to boost our immune system but learning and knowing about our health and how to be healthy is a plus. There are so many ways in acquiring these knowledge, you can read books, magazines and search online.

Missing Hubby

Hubby won't be home tonight. He will be sleeping over at his brother's place. He went there because his brother helped him in fixing our van. Hubby called up and told me that he can't be home tonight because the van is not yet ok. He promised me that he will be home before lunch time tomorrow.

I miss hubby already and his children misses him too.

Good Night Everyone.... I'll be hitting the bed early because I have to wake up earlier than usual for church.


Cyro Cell... For Our Kid's Future

No one and nothing can stop the spreading of Cryo-Cell and all of it's advantages. Many people are now considering stem cell preservation. Cord blood banking are very expensive here in the Philippines. If only we can afford it when I gave birth to my kids I would definitely have their umbilical cord blood be preserved. Preserving the blood has numerous advantages. It can be used to cure many dreaded diseases which one can acquire in the future. I just wish I can turn back time and have my kids umbilical cord be banked. I think that if I could have just one gift that I can give to my children, it is the gift of life and I cannot help but to blame myself not having their cord blood preserved.

We cannot tell what the future holds but we can prevent some things to happen and that's when cyro cell comes in. Stem cell preservation can help treat and cure diseases like Leukemia, Diabetes and even Cancer. I've read testimonials about this stem cell preservation and I should say that I am impressed. Here's a testimonial of a someone who used Cyro-Cell.

"My children are the most precious gifts that I will ever have and I want to do everything I can to make sure they are well. While I was pregnant with my first child, I would see articles and ads about cord blood and it bothered me that it was so expensive but what if I one day needed this blood. The reality of having only one chance or it really went in the garbage kept me wondering if I would regret not investing. What if he had cancer or his dad or I were sick, would that blood have been the cure? Through research, I came across Cryo-Cell International, Inc., a company with the most reasonable rates and the assurance of two holding facilities.

When I was pregnant with my second child, we wondered if one bank was enough? Finances were tighter and should we spend the money? Then we realized that his brothers blood might not match for the new baby. The next day, stories were breaking about how Cord blood had saved or changed the lives of children, one cancer, one cerebral palsy. Then we discovered that a friend was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma. He didn't bank his daughters blood and wished he had. Three years prior, I lost a friend to renal cancer when she was 29. We felt like it was our answer.

We are just beginning to see miracles that this blood can bring. We have two "life insurance policies", that is how we look at it. If anyone in the family gets ill, there is a chance that the blood could save our lives. If we don't use it, then it is there for our son's children."

So if you are an expectant mother or you know someone who is pregnant, I would strongly suggest to consider Cyro-Cell for your child's future. If you enroll on Cyro-Cell on or before April 19, 2009 you will get a free Baby Bjorn

Go Green!

It's a no secret that I am looking for a new opportunity to earn while at home. I worked for four years at a government office. When I got married and eventually got pregnant, Hubby and I decided that I should give up my job for our growing family. I always wanted to be a hands on mommy and wife. I want to take good care of them. Now that I am a stay at home mommy I plan to look for some way in earning money while at home. I wanted to be productive and I want to help hubby in earning for our children.

Somebody told me about Green Home-Based Businesses . The business ideas and products on this site is environmental friendly. Since I strongly believe that now is the time to take action in preserving and respecting our environment, it'll be a good idea to earn while taking care of our planet.

A green home based business promotes environment-friendly products and this type of business is supported by Jon M Queen, a businessman and finance lawyer. Check out this other Jon Queen profile here.


Am I Getting Enough Sleep?

I've been having insomnia attacks these couple of weeks. I refused to take some sleeping pills coz I don't wanna get addicted to it. Anyway, I checked out some new quizzes from blogthings and saw this test about having enough sleep. Here's my result...

You Sometimes Don't Get Enough Sleep

You're often more tired than you'd like, and you're probably not getting enough quality sleep.

Sleeping a little more could make you a lot more energetic and happy.

Try having a bedtime, keep your bedroom cool, and only eat fruit before bed.

Busy Day

I had a real busy day today. My kids and I spent our day at my aunt's place. My relatives were all there. My aunt prepared lunch and dinner for us. Since my aunt's house is near their village clubhouse, Symone spent most of her time in the pool with my cousins. I had a hard time taking care of my youngest, Liam. He wanted to walk and walk and walk. It's a good thing that my cousins were there and they helped me with my little boy. Sadly, Hubby had to go to the office today. He missed the fun of being with my relatives. We got home at 9pm. My kids were tired. As soon as I finished cleaning them, my two bosses fell asleep. Hubby came late. We had dinner together. I am planning to sleep early tonight and be prepared of another busy day tomorrow with my kids.

Goodnight everyone!

Working at Home

I've been a stay at home wife and mommy for 6 years now and I must admit that I miss working very much. Now that I already have 2 kids and my youngest is only 1 year old, I know that working again will be not in the near future but now that everyone can get a job online and can now work at home, I am ready to look and apply for a home based job. There are many sites online that offers work at home jobs but we have to be cautious as there are many bogus jobs out there. It's a good thing that there are websites like that reviews best work at home opportunities and anything that is related to working at home.

Symone's Recognition Day

Symone's summer vacation has officially started. Her recognition day was held last Saturday, April 4th. I was so proud of my daughter.
