Wordfilled & Wordful Wednesday

Virtual Traveler

Have you been to Holiday Villas in France ? I have visited it last week... but only virtually through the Travel Channel on cable TV! Me and my wife enjoyed watching the show. How I wish one of these days we could visit France and other countries in Europe!

Facebook Group

Our High school batch will be the host of our school homecoming this 2012. Our FB group s now busy looking for long lost friends and inviting them to come to the event. Finally, I was able to find through FB my seat mate in high school. Wow! He's already in the U.S. ... enjoyed browsing through his pictures specially the Log Cabin Holidays in the mountain pines.

WW : Our dream wall

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4


Here we go again helping our kids with their school projects. It's still the 2nd week of classes but why are some teachers bombarding the kids with projects already? Last night me and my wife were busy cutting images for my little girls photo books . Because we do not have budget anymore to buy ready-made scrap books, I just made a recycled one out from old folders. Well, it came out not the best but I am sure it will be better than the others.

Ready for Singapore

Everything's ready for our singapore get-away. My wife is expert when it comes to where to find cheap accommodation,cheap flights and cheap foods. I told her to buy basic medicines since according to our friend who's working there.. medicines in Singapore are expensive. How about cheap supplements ? Yes.. we will bring also Stress tabs and Vitamin C.

Wood Blinds are cool !

Yes wooden blinds are now on sale in our home local depot. My cousin who's house is just in front of the store called me up today. I hope I can get a good buy this afternoon for my son's room. I  love wooden blinds because it's cool and easy to clean. It's durable compared to the very think plastic or PVC blinds.  Thanks Bob for the information.

Tuesday Travels # 1

Aside from the MALL, the CHURCH is my favorite hang-out. 

I am here every  Sunday and Wednesday Prayer Fellowship.  I also meet my youth core group here every  Thursday and Saturday
 The first floor served as multi-purpose hall. We have student center here  . Anybody can play  indoor  and board games.  Free use of internet, books and other resource materials.

It's in the church that I met   my LOVE OF MY LIFE...
It's where my children they're 11 and 15 yrs. old
It is where people can have refuge .. be encouraged...refreshed....
Who doesn't love to stay at the CHURCH?
GOD Bless you all!

No Cable TV

I have been wanted for the reconnection of our patch cables but my wife suggested to defer it for the mean time. She expressed that usage can not be maximized since weekdays TV is not allowed at home, Friday Night is our Bible Study, Whole day of Saturday is dedicated for church practices and Sunday for Worship and family outing with my Mom."So what's the use of Cable TV when we can watch  8 local channels at home?"

Thankful Thursday

I was not able to sleep well last night since my wife was not feeling well. Her back was aching the whole day yesterday and when its time to go to sleep, she felt the pain pierced through her chest. I know there is nothing so serious with her.... it's just that she's been in trauma since her mom died through heart failure two years ago. Her mother had the attack right in her arms and it's been a traumatic experience for her.

Thank God my wife is alright now. I just let her rest from work.

Early preparation for Christmas?

As early as now my wife is collecting Cardboard Boxes for the Christmas. She will use them for the shoe box gift giving of our church this December. Last year, we spent a lot og money buying boxes for the hundreds of gifts given to the street children.  I guess, I need to tell other young people to collect boxes too.

See the reviews first!

I have heard of creatine long time ago while I was going to the gym but I haven't tried it yet. My sister from California gave me lots of food supplements that time so I didn't care to buy it. Now, I am thinking of trying it... but first... got to see reviews first if it's really safe and effective.

Am I this old?

I must accept the fact that I am already aging..Lol! When I was younger, my favorite vacation destinations would be cities where I can go to big malls, have night lift and other city adventure. Now that I am in the 40's, I prefer to go to a country cottage have unwind myself with the bustling city life.I now prefer mountain resorts than the crowded beach resort. What's in me bro?

Have you heard of Hi Tech Pickpockting?

Wow! I mean, is the newest trend today? hi tech pickpocketing? Can this be true? The first time I read about this in an article, I honestly find it amusing and unbelievable! But the more I read about the article, the more I became a believer of the power of technology. What they describe as radio frequency identification “RFID” that can be used to expose your credit card number and data. Other people could access it and even use your credit card to withdraw cash!

I found it very practical to do our part in protecting our valuable including our credit cards which we are using. Thanks for the people who expose this scheme so the public could be aware of this.

My moms vacation at California, USA

When my mom celebrated her 65th birthday and at the same time hosted a retirement party after 34 years in public service, we her children have planned to give her a gift she could enjoy during her retirement time. First, we let her enjoy a four-month vacation to the States with our youngest sister. She’s been working in California for 12 years now and that was the time they bonded together with our mom.

But more than we could give her, our mom also bought for her a Health insurance that really helped her in times of emergency. I thought that we could also apply for a disability appeal for her so we could also take care of our dear mom. Yes, that’s what we are going to do.

Cleanliness Drive

Pictures above was during the " Cleanliness drive" which the youth of our church participated. We were assigned at the market , so you just can imagine the garbage and the smell of the place. The organizer supposedly provided us with FFP3 Masks or even ordinary mask but because this is a volunteer work, we did our job without complaining.

Shoot Me

To Singapore with my Wife

My wife could not just contain herself. Our dear pastor gifted her for her birthday a trip to Singapore for both of us. This would be this coming July 4. And could notice the very visible excitement in her eyes as she tells me that the days are going fast and she will be riding the plane to Singapore, her dream destination!

Yes, it’s her dream indeed, literally. She dreamt for twice already and my wife would excitedly tell me about it! But what is a travel without her camera? We have visited four different photo shops buy extra nimh rechargeable batteries just for this trip. My wife would not want to miss anything when we will be in Singapore.

What I want for Father's Day

Hmmm…Father’s day this Sunday, June 19. What could be the gift I would like to receive from my kids? Hehehe…What am I thinking? Well, it must be okey if I want a mrs fieldsFather’s Day bite box with free cookies from them, right? I’m sure if my kids knew what I want, they would find a way to buy this for me. Every year as we celebrate Father’s Day in the church, the children and the youth would prepare a special program for us. And what a blessing to see our kids offer a special number or presentation to express their gratitude and honor all fathers during this special day.

But for me, a simple card from them and my wife would make my day. Happy Father’s day to all dads, papas all around the world!

How could I say no to my brother-in-law?

He wanted me to make the website for their Beach resort. I thought it was just a joke but yesterday he sent me the selected pictures to be uploaded to the website's homepage. When I saw the pictures I was amazed at how beautiful " Princesa Bulakna" at Siquijor, Philippines is. The place reminds me of the cottages in cornwall which is nature inspired. How could I say no to my brother-in-law?

Itenerary for Sentosa Island

My wife is so excited for our Singapore Escapade. For three days now, she can not stop browsing the Tourist spots destination at Sentosa Island. She told me that three-days vacation is not enough... we should have booked a five-day ticket. She planned to try the cottages and beaches there. She found one site like Cottages in Devon. She emailed to me and our friends our itinerary . Indeed 3 days is not enough !

Luxury cars

My son was amazed to see lots of luxury cars running in our city like MINI cooper, Humbee , Ferrari , Porsche and Audi . Last week, when I accompanied him to his school for enrollment, he proudly led me to the school owner's office where a Porsche was park. I regret, I was not able to bring my camera. I could have posted the pricy car here.

Scenic Sunday : Boracay Beach

What's an Adirondack Chair?

With summer right at hand, it's time to sit back, enjoy a cool beverage watching the sun in an Adirondack chair. Do you know what’s an Adirondack chair? It is an outdoor armchair having an angled back and seat made of wide wooden slats. It’s so popular for so long now because of it’s comfort and durability … perfect for for dozing off. The wide arms can easily accommodate a cool drink . Why I know all these? Because we have Adirondack chair made of rattan in our ancestral home. It’s my parents favorite piece of furniture . Do you wish to own one?

My son will decide

Thank God that we have completed the renovation of my son's room in time for the school opening middle of June. I was planning to install Window Blinds to match with the newly painted wall. My wife wanted to retain the curtains but I prefer blinds to have a masculine touch of the room.  Maybe.. I'll just let my  son decide for himself.
