Christmas in Zambales...

Christmas was spent simply with family. My two kids were here while the other two were not able to join us here because they had other commitments in school that they needed to do in Manila. We had our day full today as we spent half of it joy riding towards north of Zambales. We saw the damage caused by the recent typhoons in the Philippines and it was really a depressing sight. I am also happy to see today one of my high school classmates who visited me and we had the chance to do some catching up even briefly. We are trying to enjoy our remaining days here as we are about to leave in few days.

Zambales ... here we come!

We left Manila on December 19th, a Saturday to spend christmas with my mother and my siblings with their families in Zambales. The bus trip to Zambales gave me some nostalgic feeling. It was nice seeing my family again after 5 years. We will be staying here until the 27th and head back to Manila before we leave back for the US.

we're home!

First week in PI

We arrived safety here in the Philippines after a long and tiring trip. My kids picked us up in the airport and brought us straight to the condo. Our first week here in the Philippines was pretty much spent with my kids and some friends. I had a chance to meet up with friends at my former office and it was really great seeing them. They treated me to a sumptous dinner at Gilligan's in Market! Market! My former boss Rinzi also treated us to a chinese lunch, also in Market! Market the following day. I also met up with Laila and Maria in Greenbelt for a nice dinner. All of them gave me nice presents. I really thank them for that very generous gesture. That was so appreciated! Here are some pics i wanna share with you:

Getting ready for the trip!

Hubby and I are now into panic mode for our trip tomorrow. I guess it's gonna be a no-sleep night for us. We have to be at the airport by 4am and the weather is really bad. I hope they don't cancel the flight or else everything will be affected. I am now checking my "to bring" and "to do" lists to make sure nothing will be missed out. I hope i can have access online while on my vacation. Merry christmas and a happy new year to everyone!

New Moon craze

It seems that everyone has been crazy about the movie New Moon. Have you watched it yet? I have not and not so crazy about it, to be honest. I think it is only appealing to the young generation to which i don't belong, lol! I saw the twilight movie and it was fine. I heard varying opinions about New Moon - some say the Twilight was better and some say otherwise. To those who already saw the movie, what do you think? Is it really worth watching it in the movie or i just wait to see it on DVD?

Pacman did it again!

As expected, famous pinoy boxer Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao has brought home the bacon when he won over Cotto, in a 12-round fight. He won by TKO. Cotto was a good boxer, no doubt as Pacman was not able to knock him down at the 9th round, as earlier predicted by his trainor Roach. Pacman was all smiles as he entered the ring and while waving to his thousands of supporters, but i can sense some nervousness in him. On the other hand, Cotto looked so serious, i have never saw him smile throughout. I felt bad seeing his family especially his kids, watched him bled, beaten and hurt. But that's the life of a boxer......

Excited to see the Pacquiao-Cotto fight

I cannot wait to see our very own Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao in his most awaited fight with Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico in the boxing ring in Las Vegas on the 14th of this month. I am pretty sure, every Filipino, in and out of the Philippines are looking forward to watching this fight. I don't know who Cotto is but i know Pacman is gonna make every Filipino proud on this fight. I am starting to look for a live streaming online on the fight so i can watch it online. Anybody knows of any good site?

The amazing voice of Lea Salonga

I'm glad we got to watch Lea Salonga at the University of Buffalo Center for the Arts. I enjoyed it very much and hubby did enjoy the show as well. Although, we had a hard time looking for the place of venue, we got there on time. Lea, as expected wowed the audience many times during show. She sang two Tagalog songs and the rest were some of her popular English songs, most of those she sang on Broadway. Her voice is amazing, it's all worth it.

Lea Salonga, one of the Philippines' pride!

Excited to see Lea Salonga

I am so excited to watch Lea Salonga, one of my favorite Filipino artists, perform here in Buffalom NY on Saturday. Hubby just bought the tickets. I wasn't really expecting it anymore after he told me we couldnot go because we could not afford the tickets. Of course, I was a little disappointed and he knows how much i wanted to go. This is a very rare chance to see her in person. I'm sure it's gonna be fun and i am really looking forward to it.

Beach Bikes, Anyone?

Are you looking for a very nice Christmas gift for your kids, something that they will surely enjoy? I highly recommend you get them those kids’ beach cruiser bikes. Summer is over but now is the perfect time for you to get those bikes for them to enjoy next summer. I know of one great place in Southern California where you can buy inexpensive beach bikes or cruisers. They ship all over the USA through FedEx. Visit the site and browse over tons of bikes, cruisers, scooters, bikes’ parts and accessories and many more. My grand daughter would love to have one of those cute red xyz bicycles. I might get one for my husband too!

Wide Selection of Designer Bunk Beds Only At Spacify!

Hubby and I have been saving money to buy beds for the kids who will be coming to stay with us hopefully within the next two years. Deciding on what type of beds should we get for the kids was not easy. We need something that would be nice, comfortable and durable that is also a space saver. I kept on looking online, in catalogues and even in stores. There are so many choices until I saw those designer Bunk Beds at Spacify that I think would be perfect for teenagers. Without second thought, my husband agreed with me. I’m sure the kids would enjoy their bunk beds as much as we do. I cannot wait to see it!

Amazing Halloween Deals

Halloween is just around the corner. Parents and kids alike are already excited about it. Not even the economic recession could stop us from celebrating it. Parents, like me, are now busy looking for Halloween costumes for their kids. It’s great to know that we don’t have to spend much on Halloween costumes, of course with the help of promotional codes that we can get easily online. I love shopping online because I get amazing deals that have always saved me a lot of money. In fact, I found Halloween deals that any parent could not pass up at Spirit Halloween. With the coming holidays, you too could take advantage of these great savings, like I do!

Amazing Dog Story

Most families in the US have dogs. I am amazed at how much they spend on taking care of their dogs. Dogs become so spoiled, and grow worse than kids. I miss my dogs, we lost them about a year ago and i still think of getting one sometimes but my hubby said and i agree, that if we get a dog, then we will be tied to the house again like before. Well, dogs are lovable pets, they make us happy. They are amazing creatures. Speaking about amazing creatures, here is an amazing story of an amazing dog that i want to share....


A guy is driving around the back woods of Montana and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house: 'Talking Dog For Sale ' He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.'You talk?' he asks. 'Yep,' the Lab replies. After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says 'So, what's your story?'

The Lab looks up and says, 'Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA. In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.'


'I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running. But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.' 'I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired.'


The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog. 'Ten dollars,' the guy says.'Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?' 'Because he's a liar. He never did any of that shit.

I still cannot believe summer is over and i feel i haven't really enjoyed the summer enough. I can count in one hand how many times i was able to get in the pool. Not worth all the efforts, you know. But, Fall has officially started and let's just enjoy it! Happy Sunday to all!

My Dream Hawaiian Vacation

I miss the tropical Philippines – the weather, the people and everything. I was talking to my cousin in Hawaii about vacationing there but since it costs me a lot of money, she suggested I visit her in Hawaii instead. Hawaii has been one of my dream vacation destinations, anyway. I have relatives and friends there that I want to visit and of course I heard a lot about the beautiful places in Hawaii particularly Maui. One of my friends just went there for her honeymoon and she strongly recommended the place to everyone who wants a taste of paradise. I saw the pictures and the place really looks amazingly beautiful. What a romantic place for get-aways, weddings and honeymoons.

Well, I got a surprise call from a friend today and guess what! She invited me to attend her dream Maui wedding early next year. I am so excited! I think attending one of Maui Weddings is something to look forward to. The wedding will be held in exotic Maui, in the famous Ka'anapali Resort. I cannot wait to see the place plus the chance to visit my friends and relatives while there. I heard only good things about this Maui Resort where all the amenities anyone needs for a perfect vacation is there. You can have fun while relaxing, learn about the culture, and get to experience their food, music, some entertainment and relaxation. If you need to get out sometime, Hawaii is the perfect choice. And when in Hawaii, don’t forget to visit Ka'anapali Resort in Maui.



Let's sing!

Why Women Are Crabby!

It is so hard or impossible to understand women. I always hear men say this. I admit, that is true. Even I, myself, can hardly understand myself, lol! Well, women is a unique creature, i guess. there is so much going on inside her - physically, emotionally and mentally. We are a bunch of serious creatures, lovable and capable of loving. We are different, indeed! But i love being a woman. Here are some funny facts about women, why we are crabby!
We started to 'bud' in our blouses at 9 or 10 years old only to find that anything that came in contact with those tender, blooming buds hurt so bad it brought us to tears. So came the ridiculously uncomfortable training bra contraption that the boys in school would snap until we had calluses on our backs.
Next, we get our periods in our early to mid-teens (or sooner). Along with those budding boobs, we bloated, we cramped, we got the hormone crankies, had to wear little mattresses between our legs or insert tubular, packed cotton rods in places we didn't even know we had. Our next little rite of passage was having sex for the first time which was about as much fun as having a ramrod push your uterus through your nostrils (IF he did it right and didn't end up with his little cart before his horse), leaving us to wonder what all the fuss was about.
Then it was off to Motherhood where we learned to live on dry crackers and water for a few months so we didn't spend the entire day leaning over Brother John Of course, amazing creatures that we are (and we are), we learned to live with the growing little angels inside us steadily kicking our innards night and day making us wonder if we were preparing to have Rosemary's Baby. Our once flat bellies looked like we swallowed a whole watermelon and we pee'd our pants every time we sneezed. When the big moment arrived, the dam in our blessed Nether Regions invariably burst right in the middle of the mall and we had to waddle, with our big cartoon feet, moaning in pain all the way to the ER. Then it was huff and puff and beg to die while theOB ? says, 'Please stop screaming, Mrs. Hearmeroar . Calm down and push. 'Just one more good push' (more like 10), warranting a strong, well-deserved impulse to punch the %$#*@*#!* hubby and doctor square in the nose for making us cram a wiggling, mushroom-headed 10 pound bowling ball through a keyhole.
After that, it was time to raise those angels only to find that when all that 'cute' wears off, the beautiful little darlings morphed into walking, jabbering, wet, gooey, snot-blowing, life-sucking little poop machines. Then come their 'Teen Years.' Need I say more? When the kids are almost grown, we women hit our voracious sexual prime in our early 40's - while hubby had his somewhere around his 18th birthday. So we progress into the grand finale: 'The Menopause,' the Grandmother of all womanhood. It's either take HRT and chance cancer in those now seasoned 'buds' or the aforementioned Nether Regions, or, sweat like a hog in July, wash your sheets and pillowcases daily and bite the head off anything that moves.
Now, you ask WHY women seem to be more spiteful than men, when men get off so easy, INCLUDING the icing o n life's cake: Being able to pee in the woods without soaking their socks... So, while I love being a woman, 'Womanhood' would make the Great Gandhi a tad crabby. You think women are the 'weaker sex?' Yeah right. Bite me.
I guess you now understand why women are crabby, don't you? I guess not, lol!

Party Like A Rock Star At Rehab!

My husband and I used to watch movies every night until he got hooked to watching shows at truTV. As soon as he sits down in front of the TV at night, he would stay there until the wee hours in the morning. He said he finds every show interesting, even the new show Rehab. I was surprised that at his age ( he is 54), he finds it an interesting show.


The new truTV's Rehab, which had a Season premiere on September 1st, airs every Tuesdays at 10p/9c. Rehab is said to be the biggest and best party on the Vegas Strip. Watching it makes you feel, you’re part of it; that you are right there, mingling with celebrities and seeing what is really happening inside the Rehab, that ordinary party goer would not know of. This season features hot scene at the pool with celebrity performances. We get to see a glimpse of the lives of the partiers, the staff and the challenges that those running the business face to keep it as competitive under economic pressures. In short, it is a 'Real Life' television experience that is totally different from “Reality television”.

Rehab reminds me of my younger years when night parties were so common. I remember this pne party I attended which was a different experience for me because it was my first time to attend a party where a lot of those who were there were rich kids. My friends and I did not feel at ease and comfortable, being with rich kids. There was a big pool in the middle, but no one was on it because most were drinking, dancing and having fun. But later, when one by one started to get drunk, they also started to jump in the pool and pushing everyone to it. We just stayed in one corner, just eating and watching others having fun. Then later, there was already fighting and screaming. We didn’t know what started it and who started it. Everybody wanted to get out of there right at that moment. We learned later that a drunk kid threw up in the pool, yuck! This kind of “party foul” is something I sure do not want to see at Rehab.

Classic party fouls may not be avoided to happen even at Rehab but I believe that staffers have been trained to handle it a lot better so fights and chaos would be so much under control. Watch this video to give you an idea what I am talking about.


Now, don’t you know that you can win a chance to party like a rock star at Rehab at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel & Casino pool? How? Simply join the sweepstakes by visiting

What do you think of this?

Kanye West was booed by the audience when he interrupted Taylor Swift on her acceptance speech after winning a Video Music Award. Kanye insisted that Beyonce has the best music video of all times. I can see how embarrased Beyonce as well as Taylor were. That was really so dumb of him to do such thing because he literally angered a lot of people including his fans. Oh yeah, he became more famous as the bad guy, which definitely not a smart career move. I did not see it but here is a video of that uneventful event:

In fairness to Beyonce, i heard she called Taylor swift back on stage to do her speech again without interruption. That was nice of her.

ROR

LOL, which means laugh out loud is a very common term in online chatting and texting. Most of the time, we use LOL even we don't really mean it, just to convey we were amused. Now, what do you think Japanese chatters use when they mean LOL?

(Note: this is just a joke! No offense meant)

Did You Know This About Leather Dresses?

Do you know that when a woman wears a leather dress, a man's heart beats quicker,
his throat gets dry, he gets weak in the knees, and he begins to think irrationally??


Ever wonder why?





It's because she smells like a new golf bag!

Amazing kid! Amazing Grace!

As parents, it is so wonderful to see our kids learn to sing and dance and other amazing things at a very young age. Just like this kid who can sing so well with emotions at age 2! I really enjoy watching her sing. She's got videos of her singing prowess at You Tube and here are two of them:

Amazing Grace

The Lord's Prayer



Isn't she cute?

Summer Denim For A Perfect Fit!

Since we are not allowed to wear denim jeans at work, I only get the chance to wear jeans during the weekend. Today, I had a hard time choosing which pair of jeans to wear because most of them don't fit me anymore. Gosh, I must have gained weight. I badly needed new pairs of denim. So I stopped by my favorite store before heading home to shop for a pair of denim but nothing seems to fit me right. If I try on a pair that fits my waistline, it would surely look so tight around my hips and if I pick one that fits my hips, it would look loose around my waist. So I ended up leaving the store with nothing.

While talking to my friend today, she recommended Armani Exchange denim jeans because she said she can vouch for its quality, fit, style and comfort. It may be a little pricey for my taste but she promised I will not regret having it. So, I got curious and check Armani Exchange online and I guess she's right. I think I will look good in any of these.


I love the casual yet sophisticated look that these Armani Exchange denim offer. The price is not really bad compared to other popular brands especially now that Armani Exchange has New Premium Denim starting at $98. Considering the satisfaction that you will enjoy in owning one, how can you beat that? Aside from that, Armani Exchange is also running a "text AX contest" SMS campaign which gives everyone a chance to win a pair of denim everyday for the month of July by simple texting the word "DENIM2" to ARMANI (276264. That simple!
Not only that, customers who purchase a full price pair of denim from Armani Exchange, between 7/7/09 - 7/19/09, whether in store or online, will get a gift card of $20 off their next purchase of $100 or more, which is valid from 7/30/09 through 8/15/09. Isn't that great? So, if you want quality, perfect fit and comfort in your next pair of denim, don't settle for anything less, go for Armani Exchange! To keep yourself updated with the latest on Armani Exchange, check out the AX Blog!

New HR Policy

When I was still with my previous job, employees would always make fun of new policies, rules and orders issued at work. Well, I can't blame them as most of these issuances are only for the papers or only good for at least a week but after that, back to how they way thing were. So, nothing seemed credible anymore. It just make me laugh just thinking about it especially when I got this email about a new HR policy. Read on and enjoy it! Just want to lighten your day.

To All Employees

Dress Code
1. It is advised that you come to work dressed according to your salary. If we see you wearing Prada shoes and carrying a Gucci bag, we assume you are doing well financially and therefore do not need a pay raise.
2. If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes, and therefore you do not need a pay raise.
3. If you dress just right, you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not need a pay raise.

Sick Days
1. We will no longer accept a doctor's certificate as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.

Holiday Days
1. Each employee will receive 52 personal days a year. They are called Sundays.

Compassionate Leave. This is no excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do for dead friends, relatives or co-workers. Every effort should be made to have non-employees attend to the arrangements. In rare cases where employee involvement is necessary, the funeral should be scheduled in the late afternoon. We will be glad to allow you to work through your lunch hour and subsequently leave one hour early.

Toilet Use
1. Entirely too much time is being spent in the toilet. There is now a strict three-minute time limit in the cubicles.
2. At the end of three minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, the cubicle door will open, and your picture will be taken.
3. After your second offence, your picture will be posted on the company notice board under the 'Chronic Offenders' category.
4. Anyone caught smiling in the picture will be sanctioned under the company's mental health policy.

Lunch Break
1. Skinny people get 30 minutes for lunch, as they need to eat more so that they can look healthy.
2. Normal size people get 15 minutes for lunch to get a balanced meal to maintain their average figure.
3. Chubby people get 5 minutes for lunch, because that's all the time needed to drink a Slim-Fast.

Thank you for your loyalty to our company. Remember we are an employer of choice and we are here to provide a positive employment experience. Therefore, all questions, comments, concerns, complaints, frustrations, irritations, aggravations, insinuations, allegations, accusations, contemplations, consternation and input should be directed in a trash bin nearest you.

Ngakkkkkk....

This email is intended to stated recipients only! Because they value a little joke from the management and they are ignorant of the fact that this will not become reality in any possible way!

So why waste time reading?

Most Talked About wedding entrance dance ever.....

Unlike most weddings held over the world, this one wedding of a couple in Minnesota was very unique. Instead of doing the usual walk by members of the wedding entourage, they did it in a dance. Yes, everyone - from the bridesmaids to the bride and groom danced their way towards the altar, to the tune of "Forever". If you haven't seen it already, here is the video of the most talked about wedding entrance dance to "Forever".

Ponderisms

A forwarded email i wanna share....

I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

· There are two kinds of pedestrians: the quick and the dead.

· Life is sexually transmitted.

· Healthy is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

· The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

· Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.

· Have you noticed since everyone has a camcorder these days no one talks about seeing UFOs like they used to?

· Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.

· All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

· In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

· How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

· Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, 'I think I'll squeeze these dangly things and drink whatever comes out?'

· If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a song about him?

· Why does your OB-GYN leave the room when you get undressed if they are going to look up there anyway?

· If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?

· If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?

· Do illiterate people get the full effect of Alphabet Soup?

· Does pushing the elevator button more than once make it arrive faster?

· Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

David after dentist....

A 7-year old old boy David had an extra tooth pulled last summer. The father took a video of him because the boy was so nervous, to show to the boy the "before and after" of that; but the poor boy seemed so drugged up. I found this video so funny but this video has stirred up controversy because some parents think the father has exploiting the kid. Watch this video and let me know how you feel about it, whether this is some kind of an exploitation or not. Personally, i don't think it was and i found this hilarious.

Why teachers need a month holiday....

I envy teachers sometimes because they get to have long breaks when it is school break, right? How i wish I could do that too! But do you know that it is not easy to deal with students especially kids? I am even complaining about dealing with my own kids when I only got four, LOL! How much more if you deal with more than four? Well, here is an example why teachers deserve a month holiday while we ordinary employees don't. We know the reason…. cuz they are so stressed out by our kids! Read the essays below. Just click on the image for a larger view.

How about these mathematics geniuses, LOL! The 4th one is my favorite, it cracked me up big time!

Filipino Excuse Letters

This is hilarious! These are supposed to be letters written by parents to school when their kids had to miss class. I remember when i was in grade school and i have to absent from class, i already have letters ready so mother just need to sign it. The letters were like formatted and ready for use and I just change reasons from headache to stomachache, toothache or LBM (loose bowel movement), LOL! At least i don't use the old alibi that one classmate would use all the time: that his grandma died, lol! Wonder how many grandma he got. Anyway, here are some letters, enjoy it!

These are excuse notes from parents (including original spelling) collected by schools from all over the country.
