I really missed Dairy Queen Rocky Road Blizzard! The ice cream with cashew nuts and marshmallows served upside down! Great for these very unusual weather! (I thought that in the start of the "ber" months the temperature would go down, but I guess it's not!)

Thanks to "craving" of Ate Agie, we all enjoyed this treat! But I noticed that their marshmallows became smaller. Never the less I really enjoyed my Blizzard and I'm looking forward for another refreshing treat! Paging Ate Agie! Paging Ate Agie! hahahaha!

I have worked in a hospital before my current job. I was assigned with the accounting department as well as in monitoring the supplies purchased. It is the commitment of the hospital to purchase quality medical and medical supplies. Being in the hospital environment for more than a year, I learned that consideration for quality is a must even in small supplies and gadgets like stethoscope. Good thing there is a site like jazzmedical.com which sells online medical, hospital, doctors, EMT and EMS supplies. It carries most of the famous brand that are known for quality. Some of the brands that it sells are 3M for bandages, BD for IV supplies, Microflex for gloves and Terumo for syringes. It also sells medical equipments like oximeters, defibs, ultrasounds and dopplers to name a few. Doctors could also purchase online some of their accessories and tools like stethoscopes, thermometers and blood pressure kits. No need to fall in line to shop, with just a click of the mouse doctors could order and it would be delivered right in their door steps. It is a relief in their very busy and tight schedules so they would always be on call. Actually it is not only hospital and medical people that could avail of the services offered by the jazzmedical.com, even for our house hold we could also order from them first aide kits. Having a first aid kit is a must for homes because no one would know when and where an accident would occur. It would be safe for everyone to have a kit on hand.

Dec 1 - Aids Day

>> Sunday, December 6, 2009

December 01 is World AIDS Day. Let us all join the world wide awareness regarding this global epidemic. Awareness is the first step to fight this disease.


Ray ban is ooooh!


Top gun is one of my all time favorite movie, basically because Tom Cruise is the lead star on that flick! And aside from that, maybe because I love his Ray Ban Aviator Sunglasses and how he strut himself throughout the film! There was even a time when I wished for a for her version of that ray ban shades, until it happens now! Hollywood celebs were the one who first strut this super iconic sunglasses model and it's really making a huge wave on the fashion world. So did I get one for myself?! well of course! though it's still on the planning stage because buying from here would be very expensive, gotta find online sites that offers great discounts on this brand the soonest :D


The Rascal and Jollibee

The little rascal Brent shouted when he saw me "Ate ako meron Jollibee! Natunog pa! Lika!". He showed me his latest loot, a Jollibee stuffed toy that sings which they bought from SM. And now they are inseparable! Too bad I can't borrow from him :)


i missed her

We have not spoke for a long time, We have not seen each other for such a long time. She drops by my blog, she sends messages, I do reply sometimes. But when we came face to face it was different.

The wall collapsed and I felt that we were back in the days when we used to teach her how to cook. She can't even fry an egg before and maybe now she cooks the best meals for her family.I remember the dinners and meals that we shared, corned beef and spam when we are too lazy to cook. There was a time that we forgot to spare some for her pet dog "Buloy". The popcorns and endless stories that we shared. The surprised eighteenth birthday that we planned with her (how come it was a surprise!). The getaways with her red car. The letters, the letter that she gave me and Joanne on our high school retreat written in a long violet cartolina that she cut and pasted together.

One thing was clear, I missed her, I missed her so much. I missed her stubbornness, her sweetness.

online schooling option

>> Friday, November 27, 2009

A lot of blogs are practically loaded with online college courses posts and it makes me wonder why so many people are raving about this kind of schooling.

Specially for those who are wanting to study but can't afford to attend class schooling, this is the perfect type of school for anyone who is enrolled can attend class online! Hassle free on going out and all! What's really nice are the great selection of courses that are being offered. Really fab.

Christmas in 28days

Holiday season has officially started, in my home country it is. But here?! nah. Probably they wouldn't indulge on Christmas festivities, but rather just have that day a regular working holiday for everyone including myself. I only hope for a simple get together with my fellow kababayans after work so we can at least feel the spirit of Christmas, the birth of our dear Lord Jesus Christ...


Doorbuster Deals

Been receiving so many online deals announcement for a week now and this is one of my most favorite Old Navy doorbuster offering deals! great discounts on items such as graphic tees and pants! imagine being able to buy jeans at $15! really cheap and pocket friendly it is!
So what now? go check it out yourself! :D


on short courses

Working in another country is pretty hard and emotionally draining. That is why I wanted to divert myself and attention to other things rather than to feel so home sick and sad, longing for family is the hardest thing you know. And with that, my friend suggested that I take up another course, a short course perhaps, so I was wondering if cosmotology schools is my thing? I'm not really sure, well I hope I can find a way to know if that is one good short course for me! though I'm sure I like to glam up friends and myself once in a while, so I guess it is possible for me? I sure hope so!


no new moon

As much as I wanted too, I won't be able to watch New Moon on cinema. If only this country approves and have it shown on cinemas, then it would be a perfect Christmas gift for myself. But then again, I'd probably just settle for the link that my friend has sent me and watch my Edward online.



>> Tuesday, November 17, 2009

I've been away from home for almost three months now. In every single day of that three months I have been fighting the urge to call you. But I don't know what with this day, I finally give in. Even at the first ring of the phone on the other line I was still hesitant. I was still trying to decide whether to pursue or just drop the call like what I usually do. But at the third ring, you answered. I guess you knew it was me. I try to find the first words to say. In few seconds I manage to say hi and asked how are you. You said, you're fine and asked me if I am okay here, and I answered back "I'm doing great".

Then there it goes, the precious nine minutes and fourteen seconds that we shared. It might be short, a bit sweet, full of laughter, cold at first but I guess it could be the happiest nine minutes since I left. I admit I missed you, I misses you a lot.


accounting life

>> Sunday, November 15, 2009

Working in the Accounting department is not an easy thing as others thinks so or whatever. In fact, our tasks are really complicated and we need focus and all the knowledge and strength we can render in order for our tasks to be fully done with no rejects amongst other problems. Though of course, after all the hard projects and accounting stuffs that we finished in time gives us great pride and major boost of self boost. And speaking of working and being on this line of job, I am still thinking and hoping to someday land a job in one of those fab Las Vegas accounting firm in the US someday.


princess cake

My god daughter will have her 3rd birthday on January and her mom just told me that she wants a princess themed for the house party that she's planning to have. So I searched online form designs that she can use, though I could be the one to do that super cute little cake... but then again, I'm here in a far away land. Anyways, this is one of the cake design I found online that looks so dainty and really meant for a princess! :D


DKNY studded watch for sale

my friend just emailed me her for items for sale that are already available on hand. And what strikes my interest is this lovely red strap DKNY watch with studs all over. So love it! But then, I realized that I really can't see myself wearing a red strap watch, I'd rather stick to black or white straps just to be safe and I wouldn't have to worry on matching it with my clothes and all.
Oh well, will wait for another batch of loots from her!


beach hunt for the holidays

>> Saturday, November 14, 2009

Holiday break is just around the corner and my friends are already planning on a quick holiday getaway. But unfortunately, I haven't been able to talk to them, thus making me clueless on their plans and all. I wonder if they would continue on their search for something like a romantic vacation riviera maya packages. Something that will bring total relaxation and stress free getaway. You see, we are already getting over the super hyper vacation mode, where partying and boost full night are the trend. Now we want a very serene and zen inspired vacation spot where total body and rejuvenating can happen without the hassle and bustle of crowded beach spots.


Starbucks Holiday Blended Coffee

So speaking of coffee and the holiday drinks that Starbucks is offering, I wonder what you guys prefer?! do you like the super sweet toffee nut - which I love among the three blends. Or do you prefer the dark cherry mocha - which is the least of my favorite, because? well, because it's tastes dark, whatever. And how about the peppermint mocha? that my friend is so frenzied about! can't really deal with mint on coffee you know, but I'd rather have that instead of the dark cherry one.
How about you?! care to share your fave?


coffee planner

My friend is bugging me on drinking Starbucks coffee so she can get additional stickers for her planner card, or whatever you call that little red leaflet where the barista sticks well yes, the stickers after you avail their holiday or regular coffee... 17 stickers all in all, which likely cost a person to spend over two grand of pesos in order to fill that all.
Something that I can't really get. Oh well. Whatever, dear friend... get me a grande toffee nut - iced.

Have a Laugh!

>> Saturday, October 17, 2009

Toaster with pieces of bread

I know it's a little hokey, but this made me giggle this morning. It's a quote that's attributed to "Garfield" creator Jim Davis:

"If people were meant to pop out of bed, we'd all sleep in toasters."

So if you're not feeling your usual chipper, embrace-the-day self this morning, fear not! But if you can crack a smile, you know you're back on track.

** funny how this quote was said. actually, we are the ones who makes our lives so miserable by dwelling on the negative side of the coin. Why not try to be a positive type of person and live life without dragging around the negatives of the environment?! Live life at its fullest, laugh to our hearts content and love people that loves us well.. And see... things will be totally different!

And of course the thing that is synonymous with his trip are the Omiyage (presents/souvenirs). Now he got us this cute banana pies. I asked why the hell are these called pie, but they looked more like biscuits, more similar to Cebu's otap. He just laughed off and shook his head so I just dropped off the argument. And before the cookies/pies arre distributed I manage to took some picture. The packaging is nice, I love it!


vending biz!

When I was still working in the hospital, you'll often see me buying and getting stuff from the vending machines, be it coffee, chips, candies and even canned sodas. I dunno, maybe I just love inserting bills and the clicking sound of the buttons every time I use that huge machine. And I feel so terribly bad whenever the machine is out of service or was not refilled with contents. And then I realized that if given a chance, I'll probably enter this type of business in the future. And this I found while searching about this future business idea from www.vendstar.com - what I like about this company are the sleek designs of their vending machines, the candy machines are the coolest! Look at their samples, so nice - it dispenses a whole lot of stuff even small toys! it'll sure to be a great hit with kids :D


Top 5 Woman Tag

Bridgitte has tagged me with this special Top 5 women tag!

("Make A List of 5 WOMEN you admire the most" Who's on the list? Are they women who have accomplished what they have dreamed of? Are they women loved and respected with equal passion? Are they women who make apologies for neither their sex nor their sexuality? You may choose from your family, friends, government, entertainment and everywhere. You may not realize it, but you are on the list.)

The 5 Women that I admire most:

1. Oprah Winfrey-I admire because of her strong will and determination. In spite of the hardships and not so good experience that she encountered in her road to her success it never hinder her to strive more and continue to pursue her dreams. Now from being the girl wearing potato sack as dress, she became the most influential woman in the world. She always reminds me that no matter how many hardships and problems we encounter, we must never stop achieving our dreams. And one thing more, she always look back from where she came from. Maybe that's why she is so blessed because she got a very good heart.

2. Atty. Katrina Legarda-She is a prominent lawyer in the Philippines. She specializes in family law and a known woman's right advocate. Strong willed and woman of principle. She reminds me that no woman should be dependent on men.

3. The late Princess Diana- I admire her because she is a true beauty inside and out. Her advocacy and willingness to help people really captures my heart. It really breaks my heart when she passed away more than a decade now.

4. Mother Theresa of Calcutta- She is a Nobel Peace Prize winner that selflessly devoted her time to the poor and the needy. Pro-life advocate which I admire.

5. My mom. She raised us to be good Christians. She loves us unconditionally. My critic and supporter all in one.

Now I pass this to all the admirable friends in my blog roll. Enjoy this tag!


Interesting Blog

When I was still new in the blogging world, I still have some reservations in my mind if ever I could survive it. I am afraid that my post would not even be interesting for some readers. I was afraid that I might not get something out of it. And now after being in the so called Blogging World for more than a year, I think I have proven to myself that there is still something interesting in what is inside my head. And I have gained friends that never forget to tell me that my works are appreciated.

Thank you so much Amy for tagging me with this. Thank you for finding my blog interesting. I really appreciate it. Mwah!

Now I am passing this to all my friends! Love you all!


Acrophobic Pau

I have been acrophobic all my life. I have this fear of heights. I can't even go near the railings of SM Malls or look down while the elevator in Robinson's goes up. Everytime I would do that, my knees are becomes weak and I feel like collapsing. Very terrible for a big girl like me LOL!

Just like last Wednesday and Thursday, we had this academic training for our Syteline ERP at PBCom Building in Makati. The training room was on the 22nd floor. We arrived early so we just fooled around the training room even taking photos, playing with the modern office chairs (not like what we have here in the office!). When one of the facilitators pulled up the roman shades, I saw the panoramic view of the Makati, my knees starts shaking, I started to feel uncomfortable. Much more when one of my officemates pulled me near the glass window and forced me to looked down. I feel like fainting, well that would be the worse for them because they would have to pull me up in case I would faint! I tried to be brave and tried to go near several times but it doesn't work, I feel like I was shrinking.

I don't know how I got this phobia, but I have this since I was young. I remember I can't even look down from the 3rd floor of our school building, what more the 22nd floor. I envy the bravery of those who can go bungee jumping or wall climbing, much more the window cleaners that I saw last Thursday. They were outside the building, cleaning the glass windows with just scaffoldings and their cleaning materials. Brave people! But I manage to took a picture of Mabel san near the glass window, but of course I use the zoom lens of the camera! hahaha!


wedding that'll be missed

Living and working in another country is one painful thing. But you see, it may sounded like a very used cliche but we work in order for us to provide a better life for our family and also for career wise move also. But the sad part? aside from being away from our loved ones, is the fact that we cannot attend those special events and occasions, just like the two destination weddings of my two friends, I was supposed to be part of their entourage but unfortunately, I had to beg off from the lists, though as much as I wanted to, I just can't come to their weddings. I know, it's really really sad, being not able to see my friend's happy faces as they journey to life begins... oh well, maybe I'll be able to attend the coming events like baptism and birthdays of their soon to be kids! It'll sure be fun. So there, guess too much of my venting, I'm being so emotional, bear with me... I need to release this thought or else I might gone mad!


Ondoy - we HATE YOU!

Typhoon Ondoy just made a huge stint over our beloved country. People are devastated as their houses and livelihood were washed away by the strong current. Lives were taken too, the saddest part of all. I even heard from the news that a lot of people are still missing.

Coach Parker - I likey!

Saw this lovely Coach Parker bag over at one's blogger site - actually, Kathy - my friend is the one who gave me the link, saying that she's so in love with this! And guess what, I fell in love with this eye candy too at that instant! So our plan? buy two! - hahaha, joke. We might, we are considering, we'll see. But my friend is such an enabler, maybe she'll push this plan as soon as possible. ninuninuninunu...


gift shopping

>> Thursday, September 24, 2009

One of my closest friend is into buying and selling imported items, in fact she has been doing it for quite a while now and has gained a great number of customers. Before I leave for my greener pasture hunt, I asked her to take charge for my nephew's gifts for Christmas, and I told her to get the kiddos preferably shoes for their holiday loots. And she's actually cool with that, in fact she told me that she'll use her crocs coupons for her purchase so she woundn't have to charge me a huge amount for the items. She's such a sweetie pie isn't she?! That is why I gave her my chain gang coupons, for her to use! You see, that friend of mind is super enthusiastic when it comes to body accessories, if I'm not mistaken she has hundreds of different types of stuffs to use as her embelish! One stylish girl I must say, and I truly ador her.. for being one fab and styled friend and for being a very understanding and supportive pal! :D


going back and cravings

>> Thursday, September 17, 2009

I'm craving and it made remember this... nuninuninununninninini

I opened my Grandpa's closet yesterday and look at what I found! CHOCOLATES! Two packs of Merci Dark and Milk Chocolates! He's hoarding the chocolates! He's keeping all the chocolates!

Lucky for him that he is not a diabetic, for he is a true blue-chocolate addict! He can consume a 1/2 pounder chocolate in a snap! No wonder he keeps these stuff! Hmmm! Lucky for me that I sneaked from his closet! I unveiled his plan of eating these yummy chocolates all by himself! Lol!

Looks yummy! I can sense the calories adding up! Lol! But how can I resist these tempting chocolates? Could you? LOL!


banana crumb muffin

Amy is requesting the recipe for the Banana Crumb Muffin that I posted last time. So here it goes sis!

You will need the following ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 bananas, mashed
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/3 cup melted butter

for the crumb topping:
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter


1. Preheat Oven to 375 degrees F, lined your muffin pans with muffin papers.

2. Sift together the 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In another bowl mix together the bananas, sugar, egg and melted butter. Stir in the sifted dry ingredients into the banana mixture until moistened.

3. Scoop batter into the prepared muffin pans. I use ice cream scooper no. 40

4. Topped with the crumb topping (just mix all the ingredients until it resembles coarse cornmeal).

5. Baked in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.

Enjoy baking!


tickets for him

>> Friday, September 11, 2009

A friend is about to celebrate his birthday this coming October, thus making my other chummies and I talks about the perfect gift we could give him. Well, actually it's not a real deal problem if only he lives in the Pi you know, but unfortunately, he lives in another part of this earth thus making it for us to think of the best gift for him. Since shipping charges can get us empty pocketed, we are thinking of getting him an online stuff or better, a couple of Miami Dolphins Tickets for him and his preferred buddy to tag. Yes, he is indeed a man of sports, unlike the most of us who often chooses to bum around and watch flicks. Oh well, let's see how we can hook up with the most affordable price offering for the said tickets... gotta check out www.miamidolphinstickets.com now.


huge papaya

I am craving for a PAPAYA a few hours ago, until I remember my post about my grandparent's papaya harvest.... let me share it again with you...

Last night when I arrived home, I found this weird looking Papaya. At first I thought it was a watermelon but how come it has edges? I was really amazed by its round like shape and its size! Papaya are usually elongated but this one is round. My granny told me that he was also amazed by the shape that's why he picked it from the tree. I wonder if it also taste great! Lol


my pet

Here is the picture of my Pet Dame from Pet Society, an application in FB. I name him Dame because my friend Mita San would always say "DAME" jokingly and seriously. I miss him so much. I guess Dame inherited my love for water! I just get him a jacuzzi and some other stuff too... oh, and I keep asking for gifts from my online pals who are let's just say, way too rich to spare a chandelier, majestic bed and some other cool items! :D
