ABC Wednesday - K is for Kite

It's summer time in the Philippines and one of the best things that my son and his friends to do on a beautiful, windy, sunny day is to fly their own design kites. Well, since today is ABC Wednesday and we are now on letter "K", so this will be my entry today.

K is for kite.

Construction Supplies For My Aunt

I was here in front of my computer for a couple of hours now. My Aunt asked me to look for a circular saw blades and all other saw blades because their old saw blades are not properly working now. They have woods to cut off in their farm specially for those trees that were struck and hit by the lightning. It was last week when Aunt asked me to look for these blades but I was lazy then to look for it. Now I found a site that has plenty of stocks available, maybe Aunt will be happy for it. I will just tell her tomorrow since we are not living in the same house. I hope she will like it because it's hard for me to sit here in front of my computer and surfing the net. My internet connection right now is not really fast that is why I am not in the mood to blog. Well, gotta go now. It's time for me to watch my favorite TV show.

New Eyeglasses For Me

I have been wearing my prescribe eyeglasses for almost a year now. Although sometimes I got annoyed of wearing my eyeglasses because of the size and style of it but I have no choice. I can't work or write properly without wearing my eyeglasses. I have plan to buy another set of eyeglasses but I want a lighter weight or perhaps I will just buy frame and I will just use my old lens since it is still good for me. My friend told me that Zenni Optical has its own style of eyeglasses and yet fashionable and in a very cheap price compared to other opticals. I want to try this one since I really want to change my eyeglasses right now. I already have two small deep holes or dark marks just right above my nose near to the eyes because of the weight of my eyeglasses. So, I hope, one of these days, I will have my new set of eyeglasses.

Food Trip Friday

I joined FTF few months ago and I didn't know that today is the First year anniversary of this yummy meme. Congratulations to Mommy Willa. I should post something special for today but it was too late when I learned that today is the 1st year anniversary. Anyhow, this is our food this lunch. It's an eggplant with pork. Once again, congratulations to Mommy Willa and Happy 1st Anniversary.

ABC Wednesday - J

It's ABC Wednesday time. We are now on letter "J".

J.... is for Jackfruit.

This is one of my favorite fruits here in the Philippines. The tastes is so sweet and it really smells good when it is ready to eat. The skin is rough when it is still unripe but it will be smooth when it is ripe already. The tree is big and it will reach your roof if you will not trim it. So, here is the photo of this fruit bearing tree called Jackfruit.


The tree and the fruits.



And here's what you can see inside when you open the fruit.

Blogthings Quiz

I visited Blogthings today and I did two quizzes. The first quiz was “What Does Your Birth Date Mean for Your Love Life?” and when I got the result of the quiz; I didn’t like the answer because it is not true lol so I decided not to post it. On the second quiz, it’s about the least favorite school subject…so here is the result of my second quiz which I think is true. Lol

What Does Your Least Favorite School Subject Say About You?


Disliking History Says You Are Unpredictable
You are unpredictable, unusual, and challenging.
For you, history is too irrelevant and set in stone. You rather look toward the future.


You don't like to commit to anything. You're a dynamic person who is always growing and changing.
You are very interested in new ideas and technology. You like to keep up with the latest trends.

Find A Home

Moving from one place to another is really hard. I can tell you because I tried it so many times. When we were still renting a house, as much as possible, I didn’t want to move from one place to another because I hate packing and unpacking things. And looking for a place to rent is also hard. You need to check everything before renting the place, like the policy of the owner and the lease agreement, the people living around the area, and then you also need to check if the place is near to the hospital, school, fire department, convenience store and more.

I remember before that when I was looking for a new place, I needed to ask my friends or relatives if they knew of a vacant place to rent. Sometimes, I looked at the news paper to see if there was an advertisement for renting a place. But now, it is easy to look for a place to rent whether it’s a house, condo, or apartment. Through the World Wide Web, you can easily find the place you want to move into. Just what I did earlier, I am not looking for a place to move, I was just surfing the net until I found this site that helps people who are looking for apartments for rent. The search is easy and very simple. It asks how much you have for your monthly budget rental, your desired location and how many bedrooms you need. Those are the questions they ask for you to easily find the place for you to move into. You don’t need to ask people if they know a vacant place to rent. It is just right at your fingertips. So, if you are looking for homes for rent, just click the link provided and you will find what you are looking for.

Organize Your Party Well


When you organize a party, you must be creative so that your visitors will not be bored. You must put something good and pleasing to their eyes that will make them happy and excited, like putting some streamers to read, party confetti or wedding confetti if you are organizing a wedding party. So when you are holding a party, be sure that your decorations match the said event.

ABC Wednesday - H

H ..........is for Hut




It’s ABC Wednesday once again and we are now on letter “H”. This is our native house here in the Philippines. This is constructed out of bamboo tied together with a thatched roof using nipa or anahaw leaves. You can usually see this kind of house in rural areas. For rich people, they build this in their yard as their rest house. I hope you like my entry guys.

Restaurant Furniture

When you are planning to put up a restaurant business, the first thing you should consider is the location of your business. Then look for restaurant furniture that has good quality to make sure that it will last for a long time, and it should be attractive to the eyes of your customers. Buying commercial furniture for your restaurant is not like buying furniture for your residence because at the restaurant, you will measure the size and space of the restaurant while with the residence furniture, you will only look for a style. You can also look at furniture from trade show furniture for your restaurant business. So when planning to put up a restaurant business, choose the best quality of the furniture you are going to use.

My Favorite Beauty Salon

Since I can’t blog here today because of power interruption again, I planned to go out to the mall just to window shop but when I was waiting for a ride, I changed my mind and I headed inside the beauty salon. So, I had my pedicure done this afternoon while waiting for our electric to come back. I visited my favorite beauty salon every two weeks. When I was still working (not blogging) lol, every Sunday was my schedule for my pedicure and manicure but when I stop working, I can only visit my favorite salon once for every two to three weeks. So, how about you guys, how many times in a month you were there to your favorite salon?

Bad Morning for me


OMG! When I got up from bed this morning, I heard the people outside very noisy but I had no idea why they were so noisy.  I went out of the room and did some morning routines.  When I opened the water faucet, OMG! no water even a single drop.  Now I understand why the people outside in our house were so noisy.  They were asking each other why we don’t have water today. What happened to us here, no water and later today, blackout again? How could you live without water and electric waaaaa!!!! I wish the authority inform the people that they are going to cut the water early in the morning today, at least we can prepare the night before they scheduled to cut the water. What a Sunday morning.  I wish the water will come back before lunch today or else we will eat at the restaurant.

Floor Mats For your Car

Do you have truck floor mats in your truck or car? Well, I think we really need floor mats in our car or truck especially if we have kids. They sometimes eat inside the car and since they are still kids, it is so hard for them to stop from eating inside the car. So, when I got a chance today, I searched for a set of truck floor mats. I was glad that I found one. The floor mats look good, with different styles and colors. I really need this because it can also help to protect our car from rain, mud, sand, food and even an oil spill. One thing for sure if you have these in your car and you are cleaning the car, it is not hard to clean. You will just remove it when you are cleaning. So, if you take good care of your car like how you take care of your pets, consider these floor mats as part of the car’s life. Your car will also look good and clean if you have this inside. Put it in front of the car and to the back footwell of the car. I am sure, if only the car can talk, he will be thankful to you for giving him a complete outfit.

Bad Trip Again

I didn’t finish my laundry this morning. The electric was cut again. I have so many things to do especially here on my blogs. I have opps to write and some of them will expire soon. This blackout gets me annoyed and frustrated. We have two blackouts in a day and the schedules are not the same. Sometimes, they cut in the morning, or in the afternoon and sometimes late in the afternoon until in the evening. Grrrrrr. How many times did my computer died because of these annoying blackouts. So, one of these days, I am expecting that my computer will not work again.

Racks For Your Trucks

Are you a traveler? Do you often travel on the road and find that you have problems on where to put all your cargo? Or when you arrive at your destination, you find that you need a set of mud flaps to further protect your cargo? So annoying right? Well, you definitely need a truck rack for your pickup or truck and you came to the right place, because I found a site that has huge styles of pickup truck racks for pickup trucks. They also have van racks for your vans. You can choose from three kinds of materials like aluminum, polypropylene and steel from different top quality rack brands like Go Rhino, Hauler Rack, Kargo Master, Cross Tread, Dee Zee and a lot more. For the styles, they have heavy duty contractor truck racks, economy, service body, side mount, topper and canopy or the traditional styles of truck racks. The prices are all competitive in the market. Almost all of the items are available for free shipping. So, if your life is almost always on the road, you really need to have these racks for your trucks. Your cargo is safe and organized if you have this on your truck. So, get a chance to visit the site now and see which one of these is fit for your truck or van.

Car Title as Collateral

Have you heard about car title loan California? ? I have a family friend who is now living in California, has been there for a couple of years now. She is actually the godmother of my son named Janjan. They decided to move there because they wanted to get closer to the relatives of my friend’s husband. All of them are Filipinos. When my friend’s father got sick here in the Philippines, she wanted to go home just to be by her father’s side. She was calling from time to time here in the Philippines . She asked then to her husband if she can go home. Since her husband is also a Filipino, he understands that my friend needs to go home. But the problem is they don’t have enough money for all the expenses she might spend here in the Philippines. So, the husband decided to borrow money from car title loans in California using his car title as collateral. He was so happy when he easily got approved. They used that money for my friend’s expenses here in the Philippines and she was so thankful with this car title loans California. . A few months later, my friend sponsored her parents to come and live also in the state of California .

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!

My Dollhouse

When I was a kid, I used to play with a toy house or playhouse. This was our favorite game with my friends and cousins. The tallest girl will act as a mother and the tallest boy will act as a father. We also have dolls that we called the babies. We arranged the playhouse, we had a kitchen, living room, dining room and we also had plastic supplies and appliances. When I was in high school already, our teacher gave us a project. She wanted us to make a dollhouse. The teacher warned us not to buy a dollhouse at the store. She wanted us to build it on our own, whether a big or small dollhouse as long as we would build it on our own. I was so excited then to make my own dollhouse. I asked money then from my father to buy the materials that I needed for my dollhouse. When I thought that I had the complete materials and dollhouse kits already, I started making my dollhouse.

My dollhouse was a two story house. On the ground floor, it was the kitchen, dining room, living room, laundry room, washroom for visitors and a small room that I called “boss room” because in this room only the parents can use this room for their visitors. It also looked like an office room, that there’s a table and two chairs in front of the table and a sofa. In the kitchen, it was perfectly squared and on the center of the kitchen was the cooking table. I also put a little pantry in the kitchen area. The dish washing area had a window in front of it. In the dining room, I had a round table with six chairs and above the table was the small plastic chandelier with fan. I made the living room so beautiful. I had flower pots in every corner, a chandelier, wall frames, and a curtain for the windows and of course, a sofa. Between the kitchen and the living room were the stairs going up with handrails on both sides. On the second floor, it had three bedrooms and each room had its own bathroom. I also put a little space for entertainment with a sliding door in front of it heading to the balcony. I painted my dollhouse with white and blue color. That was my dollhouse I made when I was in high school.

Abandon your anxiety

Research has shown that lemon balm has a calming effect and therefore may be able to help remove fatigue, exhaustion, dizziness, anxiety, nervousness, and tension. It is also believed that inhaling lemon oil helps in increasing concentration and alertness. It can therefore be used as a room freshener in offices to increase the efficiency of the employees. If you’re feeling tense sprinkle a few drops of lemon balm essential oil

Vehicle Insurance Policy

While my father and his friends were playing mahjong again this afternoon, one of the players suddenly shouted that he forgot something. Everybody was surprised when he shouted. My father asked him why he shouted. He was looking at his wrist watch before he answered my father. He asked then how much is the penalty for late registration of the motorcycle. My uncle who was also playing told him that for one day late, it is considered one year late so he will pay for the whole year's penalty, and if he will be caught by the traffic policemen and his vehicle registration was expired already, he might pay a higher penalty, plus his driver’s license will be kept from the Land Transportation Office. Our neighbor hurriedly stood up and ran to take care of this. He said, he needs to renew his motorcycle registration on that day and he immediately called his motor trade insurance broker to renew the policy. Well, when he came back from renewing his motorcycle, we saw him smiling.

ABC Wednesday – G is for Gizzard

G ........... is for Gizzard


Poultry gizzards are one of the popular street foods here in the Philippines. We also cook this in our house. I love the adobo gizzard, others they like fried gizzard. When I was small, I didn’t eat this because it looks so yacky to me, errr I said every time I saw this gizzard on the table. I started eating this when my grandmother cooked this and mixed it with the chicken liver. At first it was like I was eating a rubber lol. Anyhow, this is my entry for this week.

Web Hosting

I have been reading about web hosting for quite some time now. Most of them are claiming that they are reliable, that their people are willing to help you when you set up your website, and that they provide good quality service to their customers. I also read some of the testimonies of their customers. There were people who are happy with the services they have received, but there were also people who are disappointed. I know most of the website owners, as much as they can, they want to get a budget host but at the same time, the web hosting company needs to have lots to offer to their clients, especially the accessibility to the World Wide Web. I am really interested to get my own domain name but I am scared to do it alone since I am not a computer expert. I want somebody that will do it for me, or somebody who can assist me to make sure that I will not be in trouble in case I will get my own domain name.
