Say " I love you " this Christmas

FLOWERS say I love you. It is as simple as that… This Christmas aside from surprising my wife with the gift she had been dreaming of after her birthday last July, I would love to give her a mixed bouquets of her favorite flowers . I would love to end this year reminding her how much I cherish and love her. I know she will be surprise since I usually send flowers during birthdays and anniversaries…. that if she will not be able to read this blog post! I hope so since she’s busy doing her Christmas shopping .

The new Philippine 500 peso Bill


The Bangko Sentral of the Philippines (BSP) released on Thursday the newest Philippine money. The highlight of the change is the inclusion of President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III's mother - the late former Philippine President Corazon "Cory" Aquino with the image of her husband, the late Sen. Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr., on the new P500 bill.

All my Mom want for Christmas

Wrinkles! This would send my mom (she’s now 73 years old) to her favorite beauty parlor for a facial makeover. She would then spend a big amount of money to have that diamond peel to reduce wrinkles.

Imagining myself waiting for four to five hours just for my mom to completely rejuvenated, hehehe. We’ll, I have decided to search for the real stuff on combating wrinkles.

All I want for Christmas is not my two from teeth ( hahahahaha) but to buy the best anti wrinkle creams for my mom. I guess it would bring smile to her face and at least reduce those wrinkles. LOL!

The Coldness of Christmas

“’s cold!” this is what my little girl complained one night as we entered the month of December. Yes, it’s the cold month of the year in this area of the world where we only have two seasons, dry and wet seasons, the hot and the cold season. But every December, the humidity rises due to the cold from from the west and we get that cold weather of Christmas.

Along with the cold weather, many people catch the cold virus too. The Department of Health always would remind us then to be extra careful so as not to get caught by it. Stay dry and warm and as much as possible buy a dehumidifier for your home.

Disconnect to Connect

It is true! We should disconnect to be connected ! Often times we are so much engrossed with our cellphones,laptops and MP4's that we could no longer be connected to the most important people in our lives - our family.

Take  time off  and spend quality time  with your  family and friends.

Laserjet 5550 toner

Our kids’ assignments at schools sometimes would pile up and we have to spend many hours at time running after the deadlines. As their parents, it is our commitment to them to be there for their studies and help them with everything we can. My son’s school projects require him to print pages after pages for pictures. Their subject portfolios require us to print quality pictures for their  portfolio. That’s why our friend recommended the use of laserjet 5550 toner so we could get the best out of printing for our kids’ assignment. And we would not settle for less...

An Offshore Injury

A friend of ours worked for 15 years now as an overseas worker in a sea vessel carrying that precious oil to the Middle East. He’s been always away for 10 months every year. We know that it’s not a easy job working abroad.

An incident happened during one of their docking schedule in the Middle East. One of the ship’s crew met an Offshore Injury when hit by a speeding motorbike. The good news was that he was completely cared by the company he’s working and all hospitals bills were taken care of by an insurance company. Being a seaman is not easy.. it really needs the grace of God to endure all the temptation and challenges in life.

Our Kitchen Renovation

It’s like a virus that’s gotten into your brain. Once it’s inside, you find it so hard to get rid of it. I’m talking about our excitement planning and seeing the renovation of our old house. We have replaced our dilapidated main door with a brand new one made of Mahogany wood. We have installed new kitchen cabinets replacing the old ones.

There is still one thing I’d like to add to our home renovation and repairs. How about a Moen kitchen faucets together with a new kitchen stainless sink? Wow! It would surely be a dream–come-true for me!

Congratulations Junie and Jackie

We are encouraging two young couple in our church to plan and prepare for their coming wedding next year. The two are close friends of ours and seek our advice on budgeting and other important things to prepare. We told them to contact a local bridal store for the groom’s formal wear, bridal gown, bridesmaid dresses, flower girls attire and get it at a packaged price.

We are also helping them choose the right venue for this special event and promised to give them other helps they need. The couple are counting weeks already  and are very much for their big event.So we are!
