Bose home theater

My dad is planning to get a home theater for his bedroom and I told the husband about it. And now that husband in thinking a home theater for our home. Ever since, the husband loves to play music and now we have our little daughter, she loves to dance around when she hears music. I recommend to the husband to get the Bose home theater. I think the quality speaks for the brand name.

advertising pens

My sister is into advertising and sometimes she needs a lot of ideas for her campaign. Good thing I found advertising pens online which they offer customized pens for whatever business you have. What's great about this is that the quality of the pen is not degraded. It's the same high quality for everyday use, like in school or in the office. This will surely catch clients which is good for business owners.

Custom Crystal Attire at AdvantageBridal.com

I became addicted to the Internet even before I started blogging which is years ago. I find it very useful especially at school for research on school projects and activities, and I get to talk and chat with friends that I seldom see for years, especially those who are out of the country. And now I'm career woman, earning from my nine-hour job and my sideline on the Internet, I seldom find time to shop in the mall recently. In my free time, I usually spend it with my family and friends. We would chill out in the house and enjoy home made cooked food. I would also try to be a hands on mother to the growing daughter. So imagine how busy I am on and off work. Good thing I found Custom Crystal Attire at AdvantageBridal.com online. I would have lots of time to choose to a wide range of products from Custom crystal rhinestone t-shirts, tank tops, bikinis to flip flops too. Now I don't need to leave the house for my shopping needs. I just do it in the comfort of my own home anytime of the day. I would definitely recommend this to soon to be brides because of the stylish gowns and unique ideas they have for weddings.

New start

Still feeling a little bitter about it but I've learned to accept the fact that my Fender is gone. And now I'm up for a new start. Last Sunday, we dropped by at JB Music store in Trinoma to check out their items. While my dad was talking to our friend, when my eye caught a blue acoustic bass on the stand. I was thinking of getting one for myself but I haven't really looked from store to store or even on the Internet. So my dad and I tried the guitar and it was okay. Too bad, it was their last stock so I cannot choose the color I want but I went ahead and bought it. So there goes by blog money.

~ Welcome home ~

The guitar is still in my parents house because my dad had to fix the action but that's about it. I'm planning to get this baby a set of strings, a new strap and a reliable case for "protection". I can't wait to get my hands on this baby. My sister and I are planning a group with two other girl friends and I think this will be a blast! I can imagine all those songs waiting to be played. I can't wait to jam with them.

Chrysler 300 accessories

I think Chrysler cars are stylish and elegant. And I got news that my brother in law bought a Chrysler for his first car and I think it’s a good choice. I recommended him to check out Chrysler 300 accessories online. They have a wide range Grilles, spoilers, lighting and an elegant interior to choose from. Even I can’t seem to choose from all the items they have.

Birthday

Okay so here's the birthday update. First of, the kids enjoyed the pool while me and my mom prepared food together with the helpers. When the guests arrived, they were 'aliw' to watch the little angel and her cousin Amandine in the pool. I bought them this kiddie race car each to keep them busy. And it worked. They actually loved it!

~ Kiddie Race cars for the kids ~

At 7pm we were ready to eat! I prepared Spaghetti, Lumpiang Shang-hai, Grilled liempo, Toge/tokwa (veggies) and Puto/Kutchinta (from Bulacan). My mom cooked her specialty--Beef Caldereta and Sweet & Sour Shrimps. And a good friend of mine-Kuya Ed brought his special "Thai Rice". Everybody loved it!


~ Friends from work on the left. Blogger friends on the right ~

After that scrumptious meal, me and my friends set-up the instruments for a little jamming. While the others set the table for some booze. Too bad I missed those "kwentos" because I was busy playing hehehe. Aimzster of "Marry me Amy" was there to share her talent. Way to go girl!

~ Lizzz on drums, Flip on Bass and Aimzster on vocals/guitars ~

After that, I joined my friends from work for a little chat. While the others continue to play music. When some of my friends left, we decided to hit the pool and fool around the underwater camera. All I can do was smile, I'm too afraid to open my eyes down there.

~ Malen, Lizzz and Aimzster ~

We left the place at 9AM the next day. I felt like sleeping all day after that, but we still went to Trinoma to check something, but this something deserve a different post. Me and the little angel had a DQ treat. Yes, it's pecan cluster! Yummy! Thank you to all who came.

inogen one

Inventions today keeps getting better and better and always making our lives easier. Like the portable laptops where we can bring anywhere and still get connected. Another one is the inogen one portable oxygen concentrators. Wherein we can use it at home or bring it wherever we go. That means no dealing with so many equipments for home and for travel. It's very convenient especially for elderly on the go.

Thank you!

I wanted a simple birthday with my family and close friends--sharing delicious food, small talks and good music. I was surprised to see a lovely banner hanging by the pool. I really appreciate what my sisters have prepared for me. I really liked the banner... it's soo me! hahaha!

~ This banner rocks! ~

My mom asked me to go with her in kitchen to get some papaitan. Then on the way back to the pool site, my mom asked the helper to get the cups that I was holding. Hahaha! Gotcha! And I was right, the lights were out and the guests were gathered in the center table where this rocker cake was. And my heart melted when I saw the little angel waiting for me beside the cake. I held her tight as we listen to the happy birthday song...

~ Rocker cake! ~

Thank you so much everybody!

discount home theater seating

My dad was thinking of getting a home theater in the house. Since he likes to stay nowadays and relax, he was thinking of setting up one. Since it will be a relaxing experience, why not add a little comfort to it right? Now there’s a home theater seating available online. I’m sure this will add style to any home theater zone. And of course, discount home theater seating is available to those who’ll get one now.

Pardon me

The computer's acting a little more slower ever since I've saved the pictures from last Saturday. I really need that external HD or better yet a new computer. Imagine I only have one firefox, paint application and YM opened and the computer's acting all cranky. As in slower than slow. I mean, "snail" slow. I might consider buying a new computer but.. but... but... I really need to think about this so pardon me.

family insurance

Of course, I want the best for my family that’s why I chose to work a 9-hour shift 5 days a week. But I make sure that I spend quality time with my little angel that makes me a little busy sometimes. I can’t help but think of my daughter’s future sometimes. Her food, clothes, and education. That’s why it’s important to get family insurance for this matter. My family comes first, that’s why the insurance is a must.

Party's over

Yeah the party's over but the memories will definitely lastly forever! We surely had a blast yesterday. My close friends were able to make it and some didn't but I know by heart that they would love to come. Thanks to my mom who helped me prepare food and also adding her Calderata specialty on the menu. Thanks to my sister A, for making a lovely banner. I really liked it!

Branson condos

Condos are beginning to boom nowadays. I know some who chose to live in condos because it’s closer to their work place. And some says it’s more secured and I agree with that. Not only we can good security and also the convenient of being a place with near the city and having to use the facilities that condo has to offer, like the swimming pool, gym and many more. My friend also recommends Branson condos because of its hill golf club that they offer. This is very good for people who loves to play golf. I 'll tell my husband about this condo.

sheepskin boots

Everybody knows I’m a sucker for boots. I buy them. I collect them and wear them. Every pair is match made in heaven. I consider boots the best shoes in the world. I previously have five pairs of boots but now I’m down to one pair. That’s why I’m lurking out the Internet in search for a good and unique boots. That high cut—below the knee are my favorite. And know what? I found this sheepskin boots on the Internet that looks so pretty and stylish. I’m thinking of getting one for myself!

See you

I'm so busy again. Or maybe I just feel the pressure. Today I'll be sleeping a couple of hours and off I go again to the office to help prepare for the Acoustic Night activity. Too bad the music equipments are not complete and I don't know what happen to the higher organizers why they did not said that there's no amps available tsk. Of course, I want the activity to be a success and I would happily lend our music instruments, but unfortunately, all the amps including the microphones are there in my sister's place in las piñas and she will transport them tomorrow to Cavite. But let's see what's gonna happen later.

Then I'll be out at 1AM. The hubby will fetch me and we'll go straight home so I can get some sleep. We'll leave the house (Bulacan) before 6AM, to go to my parents house. I hope we can finish the food preparation tomorrow morning, then we'll go straight to Bacoor, Cavite.

I've packed our things since yesterday, and I hope I didn't forget anything. I already instructed the helper on what to bring, in case I forget something, I would just blame her for it hahahaha! I'm joking LOL =D

To all friends... Hope to see you tomorrow! =D

Forgetful me

Whenever we go out, like to my parents house or if we have a family day trip, I always forget something. Not two... just one. As in, one item. And the weird part is, that one item I tend to forget is important. And this happens to me not once or twice, but all the time.

There was this time when we went to my parents house for weekend, I packed the little angel's things in the big baby bag. When we got home, the hubby sent me a text message saying that I forgot the little angel's slippers. So she wearing her pambahay with matching Barbie shoes with no socks at home tsk! Second time we went home to my parents house for the weekend again, I was so sure I brought everything for the little angel. Her milk, bottles, shorts, shirts, Pjs, jacket, slippers and even some toys and a pillow. Do you know what I forgot? My bag! I totally forgot to bring my bag tsk! Which I ended up going to the office wearing a visitor's pass because my company ID is in my bag.

Another stupid story I remember was on the little angel's second birthday. We planned that day way ahead. We borrowed a car from my dad, I packed the little angel's bag a day before. We even brought the little angel's bicycle. And do you know what I forgot? The little angel's diapers! To think that we received ONE BOX (104 pieces!) of diapers from my mom as a birthday gift to the little kiddo.

Now, I always ask the hubby to check the bag first before leaving the house. But sometimes I forget to ask the hubby to check the bag! tsk! Is that normal?

US gold coins

I'm curious to some people whose hobby is to collect. Collectors strive to search for valuable and unique items they could find. Some people collect stamps, glass figurines, or sometimes a brand name's products or collectibles items. But one asset that is good for collecting are coins, like us gold coins. Not only they are unique but the value is getting bigger and bigger as time pass by.As we all know, buying gold can greatly affect one's confidence. They feel secure and protected. It has always been that way centuries ago. That's why US gold coins is a good collector's items, because it can be preserve collectibles coins for keepsakes and also it will one's asset for the future.

Cheap fare flights

Summer is fast approaching and everybody will be snagging low rate flights in a couple of weeks. As we all know, summer is the most awaited season here, besides Christmas of course, because it’s the time to get-away from the city life, relax and have fun with the whole family. It’s beginning to be a trend that when summer comes, everybody should hit the beach. I for one, really like to explore new places out there. Me and my friends also have plans to hit a get-away beach and I’m very excited. And also as early as now, we already booked our family outing which is on May. Good thing, there’s cheap fare flights available online. They offer a complete vacation package for the whole family. Not only you can book flights online, but we can also check vacations spots, deals, rentals and even hotels. What’s more fun about it is that they guarantee cheap flight deals because we will have the change to compare flight rates with our services. Now that’s convincing right? And once you book air flights and hotels at the same time, there’s a chance you’ll get big big discounts. Now that’s what I call a one-stop-vacation-tour booking. Now planning a vacation is this easy.

Picture of the Week

This week--it's all about me! Pagbigyan nyo nako... my birthday's coming up! Looks like everybody is addicted to this MagMyPic thingy so I tried it. And believe me, this is the most decent picture I could find in the hard drive! At nakaka-addict nga! Too bad I don't have any other picture to mag. And I've seen much better photo that was magged than mine but it's okay. Everything on our Wedding was really simple... etong flower lang ata ang hindi hehehe.

Car cover

My dad has been my inspiration since I was a kid. He would always support us in whatever our decisions. He would advise if we needed one that’s why I want to repay everything he had done for us. I was thinking of getting him a small gift or a token of some sort. Since he likes cars, I thought of getting car cover for him. And recently, he bought a red Toyota Vios which makes me made up my mind about the gift. I’m sure he would really appreciate it.

You are invited

I'm starting to invite some friends again for my birthday this coming Saturday. I really really want them to come. I'm the type of person who hosts parties. I like cooking, entertaining guests, talking and having fun. And I feel really bad if my guests can't make it. I have this trauma on my 7th birthday which I invited the whole class, as well as our relatives. So I was expecting a lot of guests that time, but you know what happened? Only one visitor came because of the people power in Edsa during Former Pres. Cora Aquino's reign. Tsk. So I imagine the food, beverages, candies, balloons and the cake were just waiting. Oh my I don't want that to happen again. I hope my friends could make it this time.

Weekend

We had a fun weekend and now I'm soo tired coz it's very hard to keep up with the little angel these days. She's so alive, aggressive, talkative and I would stress out--fast runner and pasaway! I think I'm getting old. Oh yeah, that's right-I'll be a year old next week woah! That reminds me, some people doesn't want to get old, but me? nah! I'm proud of my age and I think everybody should be. Anyway, hope you all had a great weekend. Sleep peacefully.

Wedding Ideas

When I was planning my wedding two years ago, all I did was browse the Internet for as many ideas I could find. I save design gowns, invitation patters, souvenir ideas and many more. I wanted my wedding to be perfect. But it gave me the shivers when I scan my list because there’s so much to do but some soon to be brides almost gave up because of the pressure and stress. So for soon to be brides and brooms out there, all you need is a one stop site that would help with your Wedding Ideas. The sites offers a comprehensive guides on do’s and dont’s, complete invitation patterns, browse for local suppliers, stylish gowns and dresses, elegant flowers and decors, memorable wedding cakes, wedding destinations and even wedding etiquettes.

All Inclusive Cancun

One of my personal dreams is to travel great places around the world. It would be blessing if me and my family can go places, appreciate Mother Nature and witness the world’s wonders. And it would so nice to stay in fancy hotels with great lodging services. For us, we seldom visit hotels and other venues similar to that, except for Weddings which is sometimes once a year or even once every two to three years. I was browsing and searching for great hotels when I stumble upon the Karisma Hotel. They have online reservations wherein you can do ahead of time. They offer All Inclusive Cancun for Mexico vacationers.

A gift from me to me

Yes, I've been dying to have this baby since last year. There were lots of times I regret not buying this baby but now it's here. And just in time for summer! Everybody knows that I'm a point and shoot person and this little baby is the perfect gadget for me because it can go with my anywhere even underwater!

Last week, I went to the mall to check out the price and I was surprised that it was still high. Same as last year. If I'm going to compute the price on the Internet in $ and convert it to peso, it's like less then 8k. And that's a lot. Unfortunately, I'm afraid to do transactions online.

But I never lost hope. I searched and searched with the help of google.com until I came about this local site here. Their prices are tempting. So I made contact and got a good deal--Oh make that a very good deal. The contact person is so friendly and accommodating, not to mention--pretty too. She even gave me a discount. I very much recommend their site to anyone who wants to buy anything from digicams, ipods, protable dvd players to cell phones. And no, this is not a paid ad. I'm just a happy buyer trying to promote a good seller. Check their site *here*

I did a small survey on gadgets 2 weeks ago and found out that most of my co-bloggers prefer laptops and digicams. I agree, even I wanted a personal laptop for my blogging pleasure. Ipon muna ako. I like Alpha's Flamingo Pink laptop! Asitg.

I'm still reading the manual and will try to fiddle with it later when I get home. And next week, I might test it underwater. By the way, this is gift from me to me for my birthday! hahaha!

Tsk

I didnt get to update and roam around to blog hop because I had to make an important transaction this morning. I was kinda excited about it because I really wanted the item and now I have it. I might be testing it's capabilities next week but now I need to read the manual and train myself to familiarize everything. We were arrived in Bulacan at 1:30PM, leaving me only a couple hours of sleep because the little angel wanted to play some more and I can't help but cuddle with her. And now I'm feeling pain all the over my body. Hirap ng walang tulog. Pagod na pagod parin kahit pag gising. I hope I can survive the night without falling asleep in front of the computer. *yawn!*
Unfortunately, the hubby and I didnt had anything special this Valentine's day. It's like another ordinary day for us. *Tsk!*

Verified



After seeking higher wisdom, I've finally synch my EON card with my paypal account. Yesterday I called the Union Bank 24/7 Customer service line and asked for the expanded use number. Just minutes ago, I tried and walla! I'm now a verified paypal user. Now I need to try if I could transfer my paid ops earning to my EON card.

BIL's birthday jam

Last Saturday, it was our BIL's birthday and we invited my friends for a jam session. It was held at their subdivision's swimming pool area. We arrived at the place around later afternoon so we could set-up the instruments. It's so nice to meet with my old friends again. I miss these jam sessions, late night talks and lots-a-booze! Too bad my bass guitar was not able to join us anymore. But of course, I have to move on. Anyway, we enjoyed the jam and booze and I might do this again on my birthday. See more pictures *here*

~ Dinner with friends ~

~ Jam sessions ~

I might lost one of my priced possessions but if you think about it, I still have that one most important of all--my life and my daughter. I have my little angel to comfort me always.

Rule #2: You now have to “tag” at least five people and encourage them to participate so that this thing spreads like a virus. Remember, though, that not everyone’s into these kinds of things, so don’t be upset if they don’t participate. Just simply replace your tag. Remember to tag blogs only and no pornographic ones as we do want to keep the integrity as a blogging community.

Now I'm tagging: Amy, Malen, Ruthie, Kathycot, Meng.

Tragedy struck

It was a pleasant day last Thursday. My dad asked me to setup the drum set and the amps in preparation for th BIL's birthday celebration (Saturday). So after breakfast, I post a quick update and checked my emails. I plugged the amps and I setup the drums and test drive the drums with an ipod to accompany me. Just to make sure nothing would fall off during the party. After that I washed my hands so I could re-unite with my bass guitar again. When I touched the hard case, I sense that something was wrong. Then I panicked when I saw termites falling off the side of the coffin-like case. I quickly called the house helper to help me with it, because the lock was jammed. I started to loose hope because the hard case which was suppose to be hard was now slightly softer than before. I asked the helper to open it so I could take a peek. I saw that the color was now faded. I told myself that the color does not matter. So I asked again asked to just pulled the guitar so I could see everything. And also I was trying to save the lock on the case. But I jumped, panicked, cursed and cried when I saw the whole the guitar. It was totally eaten by termites! Yes, my favorite Fender Precision Bass Guitar was gone! I could not do anything. It was too late. Way too late! Everything was gone! I felt that I lost someone so very dear to me.

I dashed upstairs to call my dad. And I can't help but cry upon revealing what happened. He said, there's no reason to cry at all. I think he's just trying to comfort me. I hurried downstairs and broke the lock on the hard case. At that moment, I was not able absorb what I saw. I cried and cried some more. Happy moments started to flash before my eyes. Remembering good times with this *very special friend*.

I hurried with my dad's tool box because I want to save at least some of what's left of it. I was able to get the sorbetero knob, pick guard and the 2 picks up because it was made of metal and plastic. Half of the screws won't even turn and some were loss thread already. I started to hit the screw using a screw driver and a hammer. I can't believe I'm hitting it those tools, I thought. My mom and dad arrived and they kept saying that it was okay. Which was not of course.

After I had removed everything I wanted, I sat and looked at what's left of my precious possession. Unfortunately, only one pick up was saved. I was hurt. I felt really really bad, stupid and irresponsible. If only I could turn back time, I thought. Everything was destroyed. It's gone forever.

What's weird about it is that, all of the other guitars that we have right now doesn't even have a scratch on it. Only my bass guitar was infested and destroyed. Which my dad kept saying to me that it has reason. Everything has a purpose.

Call me a cry baby or mababaw--I don't care. All I know is that I lost a dear dear *friend*. The picture below was taken after our gig in Eastwood, Libis some years ago from my previous work, L2S.

~ After the gig in Eastwood Libis. ~

My dad gave that bass guitar to me not more than 10 years ago when a friend of his knocked on our door one morning to sell it. One look and my dad gave a cheque. He showed it to me and I immediately fell in love with it. From then on, that bass was placed under bed for safe keeping. I would play day and night. I would just grab it from under my bed every morning when I wake up. Sometimes my mom would get mad because it was already late and I was still slapping the strings. I even fell asleep holding it. It was my very personal favorite. It was my asset every gig. The look is a classic and the sound and drive was incredible.

I took a break from my music career when I got a job, got married and had a baby. I am now starting to introduce my childhood hobby to the little angel. And I was hoping that I could pursue music again at a later time.

I started to play music again last year, when I joined new circle of friends in my current job. And we were able to join the "Acoustic Nights" which was held in the pantry in the office. Unfortunately, I think that was the last gig I had with it. Because after that gig, I just left it in my parents house for safe keeping. But I was wrong.

~ Cocofish - Acoustic Nights ~

Now, I feel that a part of me was destroyed. I was longing to pursue music again for a long time and now I feel like I am being driven away from it. I was not able to go to work for 2 days because of it. Yes, I was that depressed. Seeing the picture makes me cry again...





















~ Here's what left of my precious possession... ~

My dad suggest that we burn the remains but I think he is still waiting if I would agree. Up to this very moment, I still don't know what to do with it. This is the first time I lost a very special thing in my life. Approximately, that baby was worth 6-digits already because it's the vintage type 1960's all original and collector's item Fender Precision bass guitar series. But I'm not after the money because selling was out of the question. The sentimental value is irreplacable.

My *friend* is gone forever. Our special moments will be treasured forever.

I lost my friend

Have you ever lost a most valuable thing in the whole world? What did you feel about it? Yesterday, I did and it was the worst day of my life. I never felt so sad in my whole life. I cant eat, I cant sleep and I cant think straight. If only I could turn back time, I would. I felt irresponsible and stupid. All I can do now is imagine and savor that special moments I had with it. You can say that I'm emotional--yes I am. You can say that I'm a cry baby--yes I am. Because I consider that *thing* that I lost yesterday, a very special friend. *Very valuable to me*. My papa said, to let it go. It has a purpose why it's gone. But I still cant help but cry. I'm really really lost for words whenever I think about it. Do you what it is? I'll post it soon when I have the courage to look at it again. But now, I'm still grieving. I lost my very special friend.

Remembering our Papang

Today, we salute a great man that passed away a year ago. He was role model to all of us. He came from a poor family and earned his way until he finished his school with flying colors. He was able to provide shelter, food and education to his family up until to his grand children. His passing was painful but yet it's nature's calling that he needs to rest. As we remember his achievements, lessons, precious moments and reputable image--we are all happy that he is now at peace. His ways will always be alive in our hearts.

As I browse my multiply account, I noticed that my sister S wrote an entry too. You see, she was the one who left for Dubai the same day our grand father passed away a year old. Here's her side of the story... *Remembering Papang...*

I'd like to share again the quote that *T* shared at my hours of weeping.

*"When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight."*

** Picture taken from their Golden Wedding Anniversary with our +Mamang.

+ Someone so special...
...can never be forgotten. +

He was the salutatorian in his class when he gradruated Accounting in Jose Rizal and ranked 3rd placer in the over all CPA (Certified Public Accountant) board examination. He was friends with the late +Go Kim Pah and was one of the co-founder of Equitable Bank. He served the Go family for 56 long years.

Merchant Advisors

As a mother of a growing 2 year old, I’m striving to work out both my mother duties and my 9-hour work shift at the office. As a career woman, I don’t want to leave my work just yet. I believe I can contribute more and do more today. And I don’t let my motherly duties stop me from my ambitious career that I believe I earned all these years. But sometimes, pushing myself to the limits is frustrating and hard. My elder sister and me talked about it and how we wished we could have a stay at home job. My other sister suggested a small business to start and we all agreed that it’s a great idea. But first, we should a have financer to back us up. Good thing Merchant Services Credit Card Processing is available to assist small business funding just like ours. Credit Card Processing Service can provide a new start to small business from $700 or more. What’s great is that the proceeds from the sales will directly go to the merchants existing business checking account usually next day. Credit Card Processing will greatly benefit business minded like us who wants to manage our time with work and family time.

Busy?

I'm feeling kinda tired right now. I finally started my first exercise routine yesterday and will continue it after this entry. I've caught a headache last night and I thought I was gonna be sick at work. And now, I'm feeling pain all over my body. It's very hard to move, especially when the little angel wrestle me down on the bed but I can't complain right?

I will be going to my parent's house tomorrow after office. It's my grandfather's first year death anniversary. Zitros will be there too. We'll probably say our prayers late in the afternoon and eat early dinner. Then I'm off to the office again at 9PM, so I won't be seeing my little angel tomorrow. Sad.

Then it's my BIL's birthday on Saturday and we'll be celebrating it with a Jam session together with my friends. I'm excited! I'd better practice our old song pieces tomorrow. I miss my bass guitar.

My weekend is packed already and I'm expecting the coming days to be booked as well! Up coming events: Valentine's day, my birthday, 4 weeks jam practice with my officemate, Accoustic night jam at the office, my mom's birthday and our summer get-away! Busy ako? hindi naman gaano...

Care homes

Caring for our loved one is the most important thing in the world. So as early as now, we plan the future way ahead of time. So we can be really no matter what comes our way. My family has always been our first priority. I work hard everyday for me to provide everything for them. And I’d make sure it’s the best. Then I learned about care homes online dedicated for anyone who needs better caring for their elderly. We can arrange their care homes that will fit the special needs of our loved ones. We can keep track of their needs and as well as receive tips to better caring from experts. I have to admit, we all want better caring for our elderly. Its one way to repay all the good things they had done for us. For me, there’s no other service better than a care home from batter caring.

I want those abs!

I really want those abs! Badly!

My sister S bought a vcd of I want those abs last year. I had a routine that time--exercised every morning using this CD. The little angel was young back then so all she can do was crawl and walk short distances, so it's easy to watch her while I was doing my morning rituals. Eventually, my work schedule shifted, plus we moved back in Bulacan. What's worse, I can't find the cd anymore! Maybe it got lost when I packed our things or something.

I must say, this is effective! My tummy got smaller and firmer. And now summer is fast approaching! Waaahh! I want those abs before summer! So I bought the CD again and hopefully I'll be able to squeeze in this exercise routine at least 20 minutes of my time. So that's 20 minutes less blogging for me.

I'm having high hopes that I would loose a couple of pounds before summer. So here's my game plan--{1} I want those abs 20 minutes every morning--everyday; {2} Kancura tea every morning everyday; {3} Xenical twice a day. Ewan ko nalang kung hindi pako pumayat nyan! Wish me luck!
