Layout & Dinner

I finally updated this blog into a new cool template I found online. I love this kind of template because it does look pro-bloggers, lol. Anyway after all the hardworks and hassles, its all worth it after all. Isn't this blog looking so cool already?

On the other hand, I want to share these yummy food that my kids love to have for dinner. Smiley potato, fish fingers and sweet corn. As simple as that! They love it very much that they often request Daddy to cook for them because they knows that when it comes to cooking there is no useless as Mummy, lol.

My housing Plan

Like others, I also have a house of my dreams. I wanted to build a house in the near future in my homeland (Philippines). One of my dream is to build a big house for my family and a big house for me, hubby and the kids. But that dream is still yet to come for it requires loads of cash. But I already plan to either have among of these housing plans Log Home Plans, Ranch house plans or a bungalow house Plans. Bungalows has been one of my dream house plan. But when I got here in Uk, my house perception has completely change. Now I prefer a house with a stairs on it so I could have some privacy without hearing the kids noise and scream while their playing. Hubby had though exactly the same thing too. So, I think we will have a housing plan change every now and then but one thing for sure is, we will be looking around at houseplansandmore when time comes that we have to build the dream house. Approximately couple or few years to go and we will have enough cash to fulfill that dream of ours or mine, hehehehehe.

Just Read my Shirt!

As everyone says I am very photogenic lad. I think because I am such a flirt with a great smile, lol. Seems everyone adores my smile and my cheek as well as my light brown hair with little curl in it (wink). I am just so adorable and simply one of the cutest boy in the whole wide world. Btw, don't you just love my shirt?

Layout Collection

I made this layout ages ago. The picture was taken on Dec 31, 2006. I love digi-scrapping and started last year about mid of January but still I find it hard to do some really challenging layout like the PRO-digiscrappers. I love to be pro but still I need more practice because all I know is basic and I dont even know how to edit pictures yet. I guess I have to investigate new fancy software3 like CS3 or any software that is good for photo editing and scrapping. Any suggestion which software would it be? I've heard that CS3 is a good one too but I'll want to know what you guys think?

Sleeping SOundly

Last wednesday (16th of January) I celebrated my 2nd birthday. It was a long day for me but was full of fun. Especially when my 4 grandparents were over for cup of tea. Mummy and Daddy didn't throw a party since there is no one to invyt apart from family. Eventhough there wasn't kids around or kids party I still enjoyed it, plus I got all the attention and got plenty of presents too. Even my Great Grandmother sent me some cash as a birthday gift, so nice of her. Its nice when you have a close family who are always there for the grandchildren's birthday. I am so thankful for that and I am one lucky boy in this world. Daddty is so proud of me and so is my Mummy. After my little celebration I was all knackered and felt asleep in our sofa and didn't know mummy has sneaked some shots of me while I am in deep sleep.

Few and Real

Friendship, as understood here, is a distinctively personal relationship that is grounded in a concern on the part of each friend for the welfare of the other, for the other's sake, and that involves some degree of intimacy. As such, friendship is undoubtedly central to our lives, in part because the special concern we have for our friends must have a place within a broader set of concerns, including moral concerns, and in part because our friends can help shape who we are as persons. Given this centrality, important questions arise concerning the justification of friendship and, in this context, whether it is permissible to “trade up” when someone new comes along, as well as concerning the possibility of reconciling the demands of friendship with the demands of morality in cases in which the two seem to conflict.

I may have few friends around here where I live thats because I pick who I hang out with. When I have friends is not mean that I see them alone of course its together with family and kids. So its just right to pick the friends whom you can trust not only for yourself but for your family too.

These are the bunch of friends I choose to befriends with here in UK. I meet many but I pick few. These 3 woman are close to my heart and we just get along and our kids too. I count it as a blessings!

Family Time

As a family we tend to spend quality as much as we can. By doing it we simply go out have dinner in our favourite local restaurant or just made a home meal and watch films afterwards. It usually happen every weekends where there is no need to get early in the morning. My kids, especially our daughter is not allowed to stay late at night when its school days. But weekends she can so we make the most of it. Here's some photo during one of those dinner at Italian restaurant....

Crap Weather

Today was rather wet. When I picked up my daughter this afternoon it was pissing with rain and I so hate it especially when I am having my son with me in the pushchair. Our weather is so crap and it really makes me depressed but what esle can I do but to accept the fact. I am wishing for a nice weather this weekend so at least I could go out and do something with the kids. It is the end of my holiday and Monday I'll be sure working my butt off in Tesco again. I have to make the most of my days left otherwise it'll b useless.

The Way My Son Sleeps

My son always sleep in such uncomfortable position but I guess to him it isn't. He often fall asleep while watching his television shows! I just found out after when I heard that he is already snooring as long as he is full-up and not thirsty then he is good on his own and will jus happily entertain himself through television until he falls asleep. I find it really cute though! I guess he is!

Sleeping Beauties

Me and my son had a little snooze off in the sofa when hubby took a snap. He though we look so cute and sweet together so he decided to captured the perfect angle. I was surprised when we woke up he handed me the camera and told me to look the preview. And this is what I found and what can I do but to saved it as a keepsake.

Unpredictable Life

In my blogspot tagboard I had this guy named Roldan who left me a message. Soon as I see it I knew that he is my former high school barkada. In our school we are form into groups and in our group he is the leader and I am the right hand, hehehe. This guy is so intelligent among us. In our batch he is the only who survived without a line of 7 grades since freshmen until senior. The one who got line of 7 wont be in honour section but still we received an award.

So he automatically became the validictorian. Actually there were 3 of them whom I think are extra-ordinary. One of them is Ronilo, the other one is Marino and Roldan is the 3rd. Marino and Ronila are both very good in Math and English. According to hubby you can identify whether the person is intelligent based on their score on Math. I second the motion! I must admit that Math is such a difficult subject. Many people tend to claimed that their good at it but what they're taking about is basic Math. Math in programming is the most difficult one as well as in Accountancy. According to many the people who take Accountancy are the people who have most brain. Well there is a point in that because Accountancy is more on Math, problem solving, inventory and more.

Among the 2 guy (Roldan, Marino, and Ronilo) the honour student in my class are now successfully gedree holder and not only that they all became Certified Public Accountant (CPA). I am so proud of them are they all my friends, I mean close friends. Few steps away to become Lawyer. It must be pride of my high school teacher and our school. Goodluck to them and looking forward to our homecoming Alumnie in 2010.

About me though I am not succesful on my degree dreams but I have so many things I achieved in life. I must say I have unpredictable life, tommorow I dont know whats gonna happen so I always lived for today.

My Nephew

He is acting as Mr bond. He loves James bond movie and keep imitating how James held his gun. Its like that right? Yeah, kids now are more into action movies. Freddie loves all sort of movies as long as its not boring otherwise he will fall asleep.

Midnight Ramblings

I am exhausted today even I only sat down here most of the time in my Lappy in front of the television. I must say earning online is quite tiring job writing, mind twisting and grammar mixing plus words are now run out. My mind is so dry and so is my eyes. I have to give up all of the other task now and perhaps if its still tomorrow I have to grab it then.

I dont know what to say anymore and sometimes I know my interim doesnt make sense anymore. Anyhow I enjoy looking and my peding green growing and growing. If I know it will be end up to the other side of the world. Endless wiring transfer months after months doesn't help my bank balance to keep it healthy at all but never mind, such as life!

Pink Cake?

Oh yeah, this is my pink cake on my birthday that my kids and husband bought for me. Kath wouldn't take NO as answer and since its Mummy's birthday even just the 3 of us she wanted me to have a cake and to blow candles. So hubby went shopping last Friday while I was at work. They choose this one and its gorgeous pink cake for me. My daughter's favourite colour.

New Boxers for Hubby

When I know that hubby only wear boxers I was like, what? I used to mens wearing tights small piece of underwear that we call brief in Philippines and boxers is kinda strange to me. But now I got used to it and also I find out it is quite good for them and comfortable to wear.

Anyway hubby seems to be wearing the same boxers since the first time I met him, lol. Well I bought him plenty and he does bought himself too but he has this specific underwear that he really likes which I think he feels comfortable wearing because of the super soft and 100% cotton materials. So I kind of thinking to get the same one but never had a luck.

So I might try this mens underwear online in which I just found today who I think sells the same kind of boxers that hubby like the best. Also I can browsed some more men's accessories that hubby kind of needed at the moment such as shirt, undergarments especially, jeans, and pyjamas. I see they sell all sort of mens clothing and underwear so might grab the chances since its on sale. Love it when I can get many stuff for my money and get a good bargain on some good quality clothing or underwear is just ace.

Blast Day!

Today was rather nice and we had a great time in Crystal Palace in hubby's brother's house. I did karaoke sing-along with Imelda co-pinay who works for 11 yrs in my brother in-law as a personal helper. She seems to enjoyed being with them as she is like a 2nd parent to my nephew's and neices. She is very kind and cooked us a shepherds pie for lunched and then went on singing for the rest of the day while hubby and Mother went for walked with Charlie (the dog).

We headed back home half passed 4 just in time to picked up sis-in law in the airport and took her with us in the house for some tea. She brought me filipino goodies and to my surprised she got me a cornbeef which is I am very happy about. Since I got here in England never I find a asian store who sells them. So I got my filipino good with my favourite stuff in it. Also she got me suede gloves as a birthdaqy presents, she is really kind to me and I love her to bits.

Thanks Amanda for all the kind thing you did to me. I appreciated it with all my heart.

Personal Development

There are moments that we reach into our lowest points then come out the worst conclusion. We tend to blamed ourself, or anyone for what happen rather do the right thing and live with it. I, on the otherhand tend to get dissppointed, frustrated and sometimes get deppressed. I ain't perfect nor strong woman to handle circumtances, problems and all sort of life struggles. But I am glad that there is my husband who is here for me all the time trying to encouraged me, and reminds me most often how things happen for a reason.

For instance, last year was not my year nor my husband. We tend to received bad news after bad news, work is was not that great, money, health the only thing we tend to live and remain strong and think we're still lucky is because of our kids. They are the best thing happen to us and no words can't explain or can described.

The last couple months of the year 2007 were the worst one. Sister got accident, Mama had a breast cyst removed, Papa confined for high blood pressure and so on. I was all in tears and the moment I think about it I never failed to cry. It absolutely turn out the lowest point in my life and being so far away doesn't help it at all. But I seems to got over it pretty quickly because of few words of encouragement from family here and friends worldwide. I supposed need my Body mind spirit refresh and refurbish. I often not go to church but I tend to pray secretly before and after bedtime. I just have to develop self improvement.

Personal development is the thing I badly need to learn. I have to believed in myself more often and accept things that go wrong. Life should'nt be perfect and there ain't one. So I must realise and admit that struggles and problems are part of my daily life and its should be up to me to handle it with care.

Party, Party, Party!

Yeah, I've done my little birtday party today with friends and it was a blast! We've cooked many filipino foods and also they brough some in. Had our chit-chat while in the kitchen cooking dishes. Our food was sure delished and kids enjoyed playing each other and my poor son who is the only boy who keep scaring the crap out of the girls. He hits them whatever toys on his hand, such a naughty boy indeed.

But I had a great time seeing my friends and we're discussing of a trip to HARRODS next weekend to take advantage of the sales and targeting fragrances this time. Lets hope will hit the target!

Anyway, our food had loads of letf over so I told my friends to take it home with them because I wouldn't be able to eat it all especially my kids are not so big fan of filipino dishes. Seems they were happy about the idea so I leave them to it.

Took loads of photos and will sure share it in my next post, alright?

B-day Girl, lol

Just a quick interim post for my birthday. Today has been great for me and hubby is been spoiling me with great surprises. I am more than happy and didn't expect anything fancy but hubby could not resist the temptation for surprises and he did a great job on that, I got pretty much everything now and nothing more I could ask. Thank you Lord!

Housing Plans

Me and hubby has been talking about house in the long run. A thought that somehow we will be able to afford and keep multiple houses and take it as an investment in the future. Whether here in England or anywhere in the world. Right now I am keen to buy an apartments in Philippines and let it to pay itself. But the problem is the house plan in Philippines are mostly no good and will sure fall apart after couple years unless we are wealthy enough to afford those multi-million ones. We are only thinking to buy at least 500-800 K. Perhaps a house plan would be an ideal for us. Houseplanandmore.com offers different home plans which includes Log Home Plans, luxury home Plans and Ranch House Plans so among these 3 is an ideal for us as a form of investment in the future long run. I might check with hubby his recent plans because this was our conversation few months ago and if I know he'll keep changing ideas and plans. But definitely about housing business is one of our plan this year or next year.

Whats for Breakfast

My kids can eat anything apart from rice and fish. Every breakfast they either have full english breakfast or cereals. Sometimes bacon with honey and pancakes or dippy eggs would do. Orange for drinks or milk that usually is their breakfast and their done. We're so lucky that we have kids that are not so picky when it comes to food. They eat whatever we put on the table and they also sat properly and can used the cutlery so well. They makes us really proud, so glad to have them and were so blessed indeed.
