Have a Good Night Sleep

Ending my day without saying goodnight is emptiness inside. So before I go to sleep, I am wishing you goodnight with a blown kiss for you to keep you warm till the morning light……Good night and see you again tomorrow. 

Now I lay me down to sleep….
I pray the Lord my shape to keep.
Please no wrinkles, please no bags…
And please, lift my butt before it sags!
Please no age spots, please no gray…
And as for my belly, please take it away!
Please keep me healthy, please keep me young…
…..and thank you, Dear Lord
for all that you’ve done!

Happy Weekend!

Food Trip Friday

I wish I am not late posting my Food Trip Friday today. Sorry guys, since we have brownouts here everyday and the schedule changes everyday so I would rather open my computer at night at least I am sure that there is no brownout at night time. So, here is my food trip today. For Filipinos, I guess, you know what it is already. It’s a grilled milk fish (Bangus) wrapped in a foil. I love grilled milk fish even if there are lots of bones on this fish lol. My mother doesn’t like this fish. She said, when she eats milk fish, she feel sleepy when she removes the bones one by one. Lol. Thanks to Mommy Willa for hosting this meme every Friday.

I am bad trip again today.  As I was doing my rounds here this morning, the electricity went out. Its brownout/blackout again, I said.  Too bad because I was not yet finish visiting my favorite blogs and it was two hours before the cut off time when brownout/blackout occurred.  Usually, our brownout here is in the afternoon but this time it was before lunch. Luckily the electric was gone for just an hour so I hurriedly continued dropping EC but I didn’t reach the 300 drops today.

When my youngest son got home from the school, we ate our lunch together. After eating our lunch, he watched wowowee while I was doing the dishes. When the show ended, my son told me that he wants to take a nap, so he went to bed and sleep. It was about 4:00 in the afternoon when he woke up..haha and while he was sleeping, we played mahjong with my father and his friends. We played the whole afternoon. We only stop playing when the lights were gone again. Gosh! Two brownouts today and since it is late in the afternoon already and it’s cooking time for supper and I can’t cook because it’s brownout again, so Jason went outside and bought a ready to eat food. The lights were back around 7:00 o’clock this evening.

ABC Wednesday - F is for Flag

F  is for……… Flag

This is our Philippine National Flag. The white triangle stands for equality and fraternity; the blue field for peace, truth, and justice; and the red field for patriotism and valor. The eight primary rays of the sun represent the eight provinces which declared a state of war as soon as the first revolt was initiated in the 1896 Revolution of independence from Spain, and placed under martial law by the colonial government: Manila, Cavite, Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Tarlac, Laguna, and Batangas The three stars represent the three major geographical divisions of the country: Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao.

And here’s our Pledge to our National Flag.


Ako ay Pilipino
Buong katapatang nanunumpa
Sa watawat ng Pilipinas
At sa bansang kanyang sinasagisag
Na may dangal, katarungan at kalayaan
Na pinakikilos ng sambayanang
Makakalikasan at

English translation

I am a Filipino
I pledge my allegiance
To the flag of the Philippines
And to the country it represents
With honor, justice and freedom
Put in motion by one nation
For God
for the People,
for Nature and
for the Country.

My Digital Camera

A few days ago, I posted here about my digital camera. Yesterday afternoon, I went to Canon Service Center to inquire about my problem with my digicam.  They tried it and it was not really working.  The pictures/images were not showing but when they tried their own memory card; the digicam worked, so they figured it out the problem.  There’s nothing wrong with my digicam, it was the memory card that was not working.  Thank God, I said.  They told me to buy a new memory card but I don’t have time yet to go to the mall because I am now busy helping my nephew to gather all his requirements for applying immigrant visa for Canada.

I am just sad because I can’t print now the pictures there.  I have so many very important and memorable pictures there like our pictures with Shy, the gifts of Dhemz and my friend’s pictures when we had our beach party last Christmas. Well, I think I should be happy then because it is not the camera has a problem, it’s the memory card. If it is the camera, I am sure I will spend more money for fixing the camera than buying a memory card.

My Digital Camera is not working.........

I feel so bad with my digital camera.  I don’t know why I can’t transfer the pictures from the camera to my computer.  At first, I thought that the USB cord was not working anymore because my son used this USB cord also to his MP5 player.  I was then looking for a new USB cord.  When I tried the new USB cord, it was still the same, and the images were not showing but if I will not plug-in the USB cord, the pictures were there.  What happened to my digital camera?  I am so sad because I can’t post our pictures with Shy when we went out and shop and I can’t also post the pictures of Dhemz gifts for me last Christmas which I received the day before Valentine’s Day.  It was like Valentine’s Day gifts for me from this wonderful mom, wife and a blogger.  To Dhmez, from the bottom of my heart, a huge thank you for those gifts, I will not mention it here what were those gifts because you asked me not to mention it here.  But really, thank you and I love the blue color haha.  It’s perfect for Blue Monday meme. Waaaa….I wish my camera will work again.

ABC Wednesday - Eagle

E – Is for ……….. Eagle

The Philippine Eagle also known as the Great Philippine Eagle or Monkey-eating Eagle is among the tallest, largest, rarest and most powerful birds in the world.

Here’s the description of the bird, taken from Wikipedia.

The Philippine Eagle's nape is adorned with long brown feathers that form a shaggy crest. These feathers give it the appearance of possessing a lion's mane, which in turn resembles the mythical gryphon. The eagle has a dark face and a creamy-brown nape and crown. The back of the Philippine Eagle is dark brown, while the underside and underwings are white. The heavy legs are yellow with large, powerful dark claws, and the prominent large, high-arched, deep beak is a bluish-gray. The eagle's eyes are blue-gray. Juveniles are similar to adults except that their upper part feathers have pale fringes.

The average female is about 102 centimeters (3.36 ft) long and weighs about 7 kilograms (15.5 lb). The adult male is about 10 to 20% smaller and averages at about 91 centimeters (3 ft) and 5 kilograms (11 lb). The Philippine Eagle is the world's largest living eagle in terms of length. The species has a wingspan of approximately 2 meters (6.6 ft). The wings of this eagle are shorter than large eagles of open country (such as the Martial Eagle, Wedge-tailed Eagle and Steller's Sea Eagle), but are quite broad and have a greater surface area than any other eagle.
The most frequently heard noises made by the Philippine Eagle are loud, high-pitched whistles. Additionally, juveniles have been known to beg for food by a series of high-pitched calls.

I love Mangosteen Juice

Do you know mangosteen? Mangosteen is just another tropical fruit that the size is just like the size of a tennis ball. The royal purple color and its green flowered shape crown makes this fruit so easy to recognize. When you eat this fresh fruit, it is juicy and the pulp is so delicious. Do you know that this fruit contains anti-oxidant xanthones that can help cure most illnesses, from heart diseases to cancer? Yes, it's true. Good thing that there is now Mangosteen Juice made by XanGo products. I love their XanGo Juice. It is very delicious and very natural in it's taste. No added sugar, no artificial colors and no artificial flavors. It is all natural, fresh from the mangosteen fruit. All in the family love this Mangosteen Juice. So if you want your family to be healthy always, drink XanGo Juice. You can order this thru online. Head over to the link provided and read more about this healthy juice drink.

Well, anyway, whatever it is, I just like to cuddle this baby but I am not going to carry him/her, perhaps it will break my bones if I will pick her/him up lol.

Apartments and Houses for Rent

A few days ago, I was at the mall. I was fascinated with the decorations they have right now because of the incoming Valentine’s Day. The mall is full of red and heart shaped colors and the cupids were hanging from the ceiling. It was really beautiful. While I was walking and roaming around the mall, there was a small space with a table and chairs inside, and a big rectangle of miniature apartments. It was a real estate booth. The woman inside was entertaining two foreign nationals. I heard what they were talking about. The two foreign nationals were looking for an apartment, or house somewhere in NC. The agent woman offers the Wilmington NC apartments. Well, right now, my hubby has no plan to move to another house or apartment here in NC, but just in case he changes his mind and he wants to move to another place, I will tell him that there are lots of choices in Wilmington like condos, townhouses, houses and apartments. So, if you are planning to move somewhere in NC, Wilmington is a good place to live.

Payment from Adgitize

Adgitize your web site.

Yesterday, I received my first payment from Adgitize as an advertiser. I was so happy when I received notification from my Paypal account that I have payment from Adgitize amounting to $20.42 for the month of January. Yohoo!. I signed up as an advertiser last month and paid for $14.00. The payment I made was really worth. I gain very good traffic everyday. I only paid $14.00 for one month advertisement and I earned $20.42 so, it was like they gave back my money plus interest and the traffic I gained. I joined first as a publisher and I visited and clicked Adgitize members’ everyday. This made me money and if you remember, my first payment was $18.00 as a publisher. I used that money to pay Adgitize as an advertiser. See, I never spend money out of my pocket just to pay my Adgitize ads. It’s all the money from Adgitize. So, if I were you, you should join Adgitize now because you have the opportunity to increase the amount of traffic to your blog plus you will earn money here.

I Want a New Bedroom Set

It’s Sunday here and it’s time to relax but I can’t. I finished doing my laundry yesterday and now I was trying to rearrange everything here like in the kitchen, I was trying to throw all the empty bottles, jars, plastic that I didn’t use, but my father stopped me from doing this so he got all those stuffs in the kitchen. When I finished in the kitchen, I went to our bedroom and tried to rearrange the bed too. As I was looking at our bed, I remember that I bought this bed more than a decade ago now, lol. Yeah, it’s true. It is still good until now but it is not shining anymore, so I was planning to buy another bedroom set if I have extra money. I want modern style bed furniture. I know there are lots of modern beds displayed at the mall so I hope one of these days, I will go to the mall and I will just window shop for these modern beds that I like. I wish it is not really expensive or else, I will save first before I can buy the bed.

Taste Buds

My son Janjan is still absent from school. He is still sick but not really bad compared the previous days. Last night, I was happy because he ate rice with pork adobo although he kept on complaining that his taste buds still bitter. I explained to him why he had bitter tastes and I was glad that he listened to me and he continued eating. Well, guys, it was not because of the pork and beans. I went to school and I learned that the pork and beans they gave was not expired and if ever there was something wrong with the pork and beans, perhaps most of the students and teachers got sick too. So, I was convinced this and I sent Janjan to the doctor and the doctor said, it was just an ordinary fever and the doctor gave him medicine to slow down his fever. Well, this morning, he is not hot anymore but still his taste bud is bitter.

To my "anak" (son) ....GET WELL SOON ANAK....Mama loves you so much.  Heaven sent an angel for don't be scared.

Favorite TV Show

My son is a fan of the Survivor TV Show. As much as possible he doesn’t like to be left behind on every episode of this TV show, but since there were times that he will miss one or more episodes of this TV show, he was asking me if I can download for him a TV Shows on Rapidshare. He wants me to download his favorite Survivor Reality TV Show because he has no time yet to download it by himself. He is busy right now but when I was there already, I forgot to ask him what episode he wants me to download, gosh! Since I was in the site already and my son will come home late tonight, I downloaded my own TV show, lol. I will just download his TV show as soon as I get the episode that he wants me to download. Oh! By the way, you can also download your favorite music,favorite movie soundtracks, games, software and more. You try it, downloading is really fast.

Pork and Beans

I woke up early this morning even if my son can’t go to school today because he is sick.  When he got home yesterday from school, he told me that he had headaches after eating the pork and beans which was given by the school.  I thought it was just an ordinary headache so I just gave him yesterday a headache pain reliever.  He then went to sleep.  When he woke up late in the afternoon, he was so hot.  He has a fever, so I went outside to buy medicine for fever.  Last night, when we went to bed, he was a little bit okay.  He was able to watch our favorite TV program on GMA 7 like “Darna” but in the middle of the night, he was terribly hot again so I stood up and woke him up and gave his medicine again.  He then went back to sleep.  This morning, he is hot again and he complained that he can’t breathe well so I was thinking maybe he has cough or colds coming, so I told him that we will go to the doctor today and I will go to his teacher and I will ask if they checked the expiration of that pork and beans because that’s what my mother thought when Janjan told us that he has headache because of that pork and beans.  Well, I just hope that it is only an ordinary fever and not because of that pork and beans.
