Nostalgic Meme - Natal Day

Image
This was the sweet email I received yesterday from my inbox. I am a member of Nestle Philippines since 2004. When I was still in Manila, I received every month a newsletter, free stuffs, and coupons from them and delivered it to my door. When I moved here late 2005, Nestle Philippines still sending those stuffs to my door every month because I forgot to inform the office that I was not there anymore. It was my "kumare" who told me that I still have mails from Nestle Philippines. So, I emailed the office about my new address but unfortunately, i don't have mails from them anymore. And yesterday, It made me really surprised with these greetings. Ha ha. Well, thanks to them for remembering my natal day.

I would also like to thank the LORD for his guidance ever since I was born. I know I am not a good "son of God" but He never stopped guiding me in everything I do. There is only one thing I could ask from HIM. Please help me to strengthen my faith to you for I kn…

ABC Wednesday - Sagittarius

Image
ABC Wedenesday…..

S…..is for Sagittarius.



Sagittarius is my zodiac sign, according to Wikipedia, this is the ninth astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Sagittarius. In Greek mythology, Sagittarius is identified as a centaur: half human, half horse. In some legends, the Centaur Chiron was the son of Philyra and Saturn, who was said to have changed himself into a horse to escape his jealous wife, Rhea. Chiron was eventually immortalized in the constellation of Centaurus or in some versions, Sagittarius

The personality and qualities of a Sagittarian.

Sagittarius Personality:

Inquisitive and energetic, the Sagittarius is the traveler of the Zodiac. Their philosophical, broad-minded approach to life motivates them the wander far and wide in the search for the meaning of life. Extroverted, optimistic, and enthusiastic, it can be almost impossible to keep the Sagittarius down. They love change. In fact, change is essential for this sign to feel their best.

Hi everyone! It's Blue Monday and it's time to post our bluetiful pictures once again. Here are the pictures that I took in different times and places. I hope you like these pictures and many thanks to Smiling Sally for hosting this meme every Monday.



HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE1

No Saturday 9 Meme Today

Image
Today is supposed to be the Saturday 9 Meme but since all the questions are all about Thanksgiving, so I decided not to participate today for Philippines has no Thanksgiving in November, and no turkeys on the table either. Filipinos will only have Thanksgiving if their prayers, goals, wishes, are granted. So there is no definite date for Thanksgiving for Filipinos.

Anyway, tomorrow is Sunday, so it’s time for Jason and Miko to visit their guitar instructor again. My son and my nephew have acoustic guitar lessons every other Sunday. Well, they both pretty good now and I am happy that they both love music. Janjan wants to enroll piano lesson, but he can only do it on weekends or in summertime.

Well, that's all for now, just enjoy your weekend, and I will continue my blog hopping after dinner.

Spend Wisely This Holiday.

Yahoo! Many employees, from government and private companies are now receiving their bonuses because it’s the time of the year when these employees get loads of cash from their year-end bonuses. With extra money in their pockets, it’s also easy to get catch up in the excitement that comes with the holidays and many people including me will go into an overactive spending mode.

Before you jump to your favorite stores for some frenzied shopping, think about what this spending can do to your financial health. Enjoying the holiday season need not be expensive. We can make a perfect holiday even without spending too much. Don’t overspend or else you will greet the New Year with a headache and an empty wallet or worse, a much bigger debt.

Have a great day everyone.

Nostalgic Thursday

When I was a kid, one of my favorite candies was bubble gum, and since the product’s name is Tarzan, we called it Tarzan. When ever I had small money, Tarzan would be on top of my lists because the wrapper of this gum can be used as our play money. Another thing why I so love this kind of gum, it is because I and my friends were competing who could make the biggest bubble by blowing it with our mouth. And the wrapper that we had to would be our sort of payment or prize. It was really fun for us kids.

Nowadays, kids want to buy it just because they love the sweet tastes of it, but they don’t play like what we did when we were kids. They just throw away the wrapper, chew the gum, make a little bubble and when the sweet taste has gone, they will throw it. Some kids, and adults too didn’t know the proper place of throwing away of the gum.

Anyway, this is my entry for this week Meme. I wish I could submit the link to Rose, the host of this Meme because I have a very slow internet conn…

What happened in my birth year?

Image
In 1963, the world was a different place.

There was no Google yet. Or Yahoo. Or Myplace-home-family.com, for that matter.
In 1963, the year of your birth, the top selling movie was Cleopatra. People buying the popcorn in the cinema lobby had glazing eyes when looking at the poster.


Remember, that was before there were DVDs. Heck, even before there was VHS. People were indeed watching movies in the cinema, and not downloading them online. Imagine the packed seats, the laughter, the excitement, the novelty. And mostly all of that without 3D computer effects.

Do you know who won the Oscars that year? The academy award for the best movie went to Tom Jones. The Oscar for best foreign movie that year went to Federico Fellini's 8½. The top actor was Sidney Poitier for his role as Homer Smith in Lilies of the Field. The top actress was Patricia Neal for her role as Alma Brown in Hud. The best director? Tony Richardson for Tom Jones.

In the year 1963, the time when you arrived on thi…

The letter Q.

Q.... is for Quotation

So here are the quotations that I found today.

A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.
By: Elsa Schiaparalli (1890 – 1973)

Cookery cannot be done like pharmacy: the Pharmacist is obliged to weigh every ingredient that he employs, as he does not like to taste it; the Cook, on the contrary, must taste often, as the reduction increases the flavor.
By: Louis Eustache Ude (French Chef)

Cooking is a combination of science, art, invention…it calls for individual taste and latitude in adjustment of the formulae. There is another word to be underlines – taste – taste of course in both its meanings.
By: Constance Spry ( 1886 – 1960)

A child becomes an adult when he realizes that he has a right not only to be right but also to be wrong.
By: Thomas Szasz (1920 -)

A child deserves the maximum respect; if you ever have something disgraceful in mind, don’t ignore your son’s tender years.
By: Juvenal

A man may build himself a throne of bayonets, …

Blue Monday - Mall

The SM Mall here in Davao, Philippines. This is my entry for today's meme. Thanks again to Smiling Sally for hosting this meme every Monday.




Kids are back to school.

After almost two weeks semester break, students were back to school a few days ago from nursery to college. Are they happy? Well, I guess some of them are excited to go back at school but some are not especially to those who are not interested to go to school. I am lucky because my kids like to go to school. They are both dedicated to their studies. I don’t need to convince them to study hard for they both like to be recognized at school for being a good student. My eldest son is my youngest son role model. He likes to be like his big brother. That is why when Janjan, my youngest, has school homework’s, he rather asked help from his big brother than asking help from me. They are best friends when it comes to their studies but great enemy when playing their playstation or online games like warrock because Jason, my eldest always won the game, and you will hear Janjan is crying again. Ha ha.

How about you guys? Are your kids interested to go to school? If not, how will you convince them…

Online Advertising helps people to do more and better business.

A few years ago, my cousin, a financial consultant, bought a Toshiba laptop, so he could work while stuck in traffic. The computer was fine, but he had to use cords and a cell phone each time he wanted the Internet. He found exactly what he needed when he bought the IPAQ, a pocket PC that connected to the Internet wirelessly whenever he was. He said, it really changed the way he conducted his business when he had those gadgets. He’s a busy man; he got a lot of work because the company found a dependable, trusted online advertising. If I will be rich and have my own business, I would like to get WebVisible too because I believe that it will help my business to grow faster.

Nostalgic Thursday

Image
Hallelujah, I thought I will wait for 24 hours before my internet connection be fixed, but it is working now. When I connected my computer to my ISP this morning, I always got a message "connect PPP failed". I had tried so many times, but it was still the same. So I decided to call my ISP. The company told me that there was a technical problem, and they are trying to fix it within 24 hours. I am glad that when I checked this afternoon, the connection is back.

Anyhow, today is our Nostalgic Meme, I thought I can't join this today. I even left a message to Rose, the host of this meme that I can't join today for I don't have I/C. I am sure Rose will be happy if she will see my entry today. Well, here's my entry today. If you are my frequent reader, you probably read the "Light, Camera, Action". It was my entry a few months ago, but there were no pictures on that entry. Now, here are the pictures that you were asking before.
