I treasured my gifts, do you?

Image
I have a blue shoulder bag looks like in the picture below. It was a gift from my aunt last year when she visited Philippines and until now, it is still in the box and never tried to use it because I don’t like a long strap shoulder bag.  I also have very sexy nighty, but I never tried to wear it also. I just keep it in a drawer. My son told me that If I don’t like it, why not give it to the one who likes to wear it and I told him that, if it is a gift, and if I can’t use it for some reasons, I will just keep it because gifts are precious to me and I love looking at them once in a while. How about you guys, do you keep gifts that you can’t use or wear it?

Acquire Good Quality Links For Your Online Business

While I was surfing on the net awhile ago, I found a site that is not yet fully developed but the main goal of building this site is to help webmasters and seo people to get a good ranking through Link Building. The secret of having successful online businesses is to get ranked from the top search engines like google, yahoo to name a few. Link Building export is one of the effective tools that can help a site to increase and develop good traffic. So, it is a good idea to outsource link buildingfor you to achieve your desired goal for your online businesses. I hope that this site will be soon available on the net.

Von Voyage To My Friend

Good morning everyone.


Yesterday I was not able to finish visiting all my friends here because I received a call from a friend and she invited us for a dinner in her house because on Tuesday, she will be leaving for Canada to unite her long time boyfriend. It was a simple dinner with lots of prayers for her. One of our friends also gave her a souvenir that will reminds her the friendship they created for years now. So, for Sylvia, just enjoy your trip, don’t worry, if your boyfriend will treat you bad, just go to my brother’s place, joke lang oi. Thanks for the dinner anyway.

A Birthday Gift For My Lovely Niece

Next month is my lovely niece 4th birthday, and I know she is expecting from me another gift on her birthday. Well, I have so much time to look for it on the net, and it is not hard for me to look for it because there is an online toy store for kids and they are also selling toys from HABA. 

HABA is a German toy manufacturer that produces high and good quality toys for kids from 0 to 18 years old kids. They have so many lovely toys for girls to choose from like bags, jewelry and accessories to name a few. They also have toys for boys as well as for the babies. If you are looking for your kid’s room furniture, HABA has it all. The designs are so beautiful, and I am sure your kids will love it. While I was there in their site awhile ago, I was really fascinated with the designs they made. I love all the designs and color. Visit the site so you will see it for yourself too. Anyway, when it comes on choosing the right toys for our kids, we should first look for the quality because not …

2 Year old Boy Smoke's 40 Cigarettes a Day

Have you heard about a two year old boy from Indonesia, who smokes 40 cigarettes a day? I was really surprised when I read this news. The boy is totally dependent. If he can’t get his cigarettes, he will be mad, angry, yell, and he will bang his head against the wall, according to his mother. The father, however, didn't see any problem with his son’s habit. He thinks that his son is healthy. Well, I don’t know what to say about this little boy because I have no idea about the Indonesian culture, but I am worried with his health. Watch the video so you will know how this little boy enjoying his smoking habit.

Nostalgia # 2 - My First Job

Image
It's our 2nd Nostalgia meme today, the exciting meme hosted by Rose of Nostalgia marveling and here's mine....

My First Job

After graduating from my first course, which is Secretarial (take note 1st course), I had guts to apply for a Stenographer in a law firm. Since I was a fresh graduate, my spirit was so high to get a job. I imagined myself that if I could find a job sooner, I will be wearing an office uniform and not a school uniform anymore with high heeled shoes, and sitting or working to an air condition room. There were lots of things running to my head as I was looking for a job. Finally, I received a call from a not so well-known law firm for an interview. I was so excited and at the same time, I was so nervous. Too much excitement, I was early for my appointment, so I waited for awhile at the reception area. My eyes were busy looking around the office. It was not so big, but it was properly organized. After a couple of minutes waiting, my name was called. The wom…

Comment on Colletevacations review

I will also refer this colletevacations.com to my friend in UK because she's a traveler, and I am sure she will be happy for this.

Comment onThinkBigsites review

A few weeks ago, I've asked about on how to increase my ranking and who were the reliable and trustworthy websites that offer SEO services. I am very thankful that I found this site talking about ThinkBIGsites.com because I really want to increase my traffic and have a good ranking in the search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN to name a few. So, I don't want to miss this opportunity, and I will definitely go to ThinkBIGsites.com. Perhaps this an answer to all my questions before on how to increase and improve my traffic. If I could get a good ranking from those search engines with the help of their services, I would definitely one of those happy website owners.

Inspirational Message For You

Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don't already have everything
you desire. If you did, what would there be to
look forward to? Be thankful when you don't know
something, for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times. During those
times you grow. Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach
you valuable lessons. Be thankful when you're
tired and weary, because it means you've made a effort.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

Nostalgia #1 - Childhood memories

Image
Today is the launching day of Nostalgia Thursday meme hosted by one of my friends named Rose. I wish I can join this meme every Thursday because I don't have old pictures of myself, my kids and my friends.

So, here is my first entry for this week meme.

When I was a kid, I never had expensive toys. I can play without toys. I played with my friends without expensive toys. What we had was we had each other.

We played taguan (hide and seek), sipa or takyan (dunno in English but this is our national game sport), chinese garter (my favorite), habulan (chasing), luksong lubid (jumping rope), piko (just hop and hop and dont step on the lines or you will be out), syatong or chato (dunno in English too). We also have games with simple objects like jackstones and pick-up sticks.

We also p…

Comment on Water Filter Pitcher Review

My family always drinks filtered water, but I never tried this water filter pitcher yet. We bought our filtered water at the water station near to our place, but I am not sure how safe we are with the water we bought from them. I want to try this water filter pitcher. The review sounds so convincing, and I agree with you that clean drinking water is essential to good health and good health means good life.

Homemade Solutions for Cleaning

I found these cool cleaning tips for your home today, and you can get these items in your home. I never tried it yet, but I know and I am sure, these are effective, and inexpensive. This is better than buying those strong chemicals and bleaches that are not good to our environment. So, here are some cool cleaners that are earth-friendly to the planet.

1. Super scourer: Mix 1/4 cup baking soda with 1/2 cup white vinegar. The baking soda softens hard water, deodorizes, cleans and scours. In addition, the vinegar removes grease, stains and wax buildup. You can use this for cleaning kitchen surfaces and bathroom tiles. For more difficult scrubbing tasks, such as cleaning the toilet bowl, mix ¼ cup baking soda with 1 cup vinegar.
2. Mold buster: Mold, which grows in dark and damp places, can cause allergy or even trigger asthma. They have no place in a clean home. To zap this health risk away, mix one part hydrogen peroxide with two parts water in a spray bottle. Spray this solutio…

ABC Wednesday - Q is for Quail Eggs

Image
It's ABC Wednesday again.

Q......... is for Quail Eggs



In the Philippines, the hard bloiled quail eggs also known as kwek-kwek is a popular street food delicacy, which consists of soft-boiled quail eggs dipped in orange-colored batter before being skewered and deep-fried.

Quail eggs are often believed to be very high in cholesterol, but evidence is showing that cholesterol levels are about similar to chicken eggs.


I also love these quail eggs to be mixed on food, especially when I cook chopsuey vegetables. Anyhow, this is my entry for today's Meme.

My lips are red and I'm lovin' it.

How is your weekend so far guys, ours is so tiring ha ha. And even I am only here in the house fixing some things, arranging the furniture, cleaning the wall frames, I still have my lipstick on ha ha.




I am a woman that I can't go out the house without a lipstick waaaa!! I tried to stop this, but it's hard to stop. I started wearing lipstick when I was in college. So, that means, it's been almost two decades now since I started wearing lipstick. The reason why I can't stop wearing lipstick because If I don't wear it, I look like a sick woman. My lips have the same color of my face, so it's all white. So, I would rather have my lipstick on than to be misconstrued that I am a sick woman.

Secret of My Life

Mother's Day is coming, fortunately I am a mother, but unfortunately I am a daughter to my mother.

Why did I say it so? It is because my mother has never been a mother to me.

She just let me exist in this world without giving the feeling that she is my mother.

I am not shy to tell the world that in my family, my own family only, there is favoritism and unfortunately, I am not her favorite child.

I was raised by our relatives when I was young and at the age of 17, I live on my own, and I went to college in the evening while working in a daytime.

However, even if my mother is like that, I will still greet her on that day a Happy Mother's Day, although I know she will never appreciate it.

I was born in Davao City and try to look at my birthplace, it is located on the ass of this animal skeleton lol.

Comment on the review of White's East Hampton

The store White's East Hampton is sounds like a place you should not miss shopping when it comes to beauty care, whether a traditional, herbal or branded line of beauty products. I am interested with Ahava Eucalyptus milk creams or Burt’s Bees Natural and scented oil for my body massage. I like herbal and traditional beauty care so perhaps this store is good for me and for those who like this kind of beauty products too. And to avail the free shipping, the $25 minimum purchase is not bad. So, perhaps I can shop online for a gift on one of these days.
