The Magnum Bar Chocolate Ladies

This was the day before Raya went back to Bangkok, Thailand. It was a great day for us to meet Raya and Claire in person. We dined first at Shakey's pizza at SM City of Davao, and then we headed to this mini-mart just to test the taste of this magnum bar chocolate. The verdict, the chocolate is really good, but the price per bar is not good. :(

Ladies behind are Genny, Claire and yours truly. Ladies on the table, Raya (left) and Vernz (right)

On the table are Raya and Vernz. Behind are Claire, me (center) and Addah! 
Have you noticed the lady at the back, she probably got annoyed with us because we were so noisy.

See Your Dreams Realized

I have been dreaming to have my own house a long time ago. When I was working at the real estate in the past, I was wishing that I could buy my own house at the real estate I worked with. Unfortunately, that dreams had never realized for I left my work as a real estate agent for I was convinced by one of my friends to work in their office as a front-desk officer in an advertising company. Now I have heard and read through the newspapers that the real estate I had been working in the past has lots of new homes for sale. They are offering more projects now like condominiums, townhouses, house and lot package, and the latest is a condotel, a combination of condominium and hotel.

 I also have read that the company has been in the business for 50 years and developed more than 1,800 hectares of land, created over 400,000 square meters of prime office, residential and retail spaces. They offered round-the-clock amenities, a business hub by day, a venue for culture and leisure at night, and a center for family entertainment all week. That’s a lot I know, and I wish I could buy a home on one of their residential communities that is accessible to everything, especially the school.

Get Well Soon Anak! myspace graphic comments

My little young man (Janjan) has been sick for three days now. It started last Friday. He actually went home early from school. I wasn't home when he got home, so I was surprised when I saw him sleeping in a couch. I suspected that something wrong with him because he will not be home early if he has no problem. Well, when I touched him, he was so hot. I gave him over-the-counter medicine, and the fever subsided a couple of minutes. The next day, he complained his throat. He said, it's hard for him to swallow the food. So, I asked him to open his mouth. There you go; his throat was swelling due to a tonsillitis. He had this tonsillitis in the past, so I knew what medicine should be taken again. And this morning, I didn't allow him to go to the school, even if he wanted to go for he was not eating solid food for two days now. He just drinks a milk that's all. It's hard for me as a mother if I could see him sick. I don't mind if he is sometimes "makulit" as long as he is healthy, so I wish he will be okay so soon.

Amazing Anti-Aging Oil

Most women have been trying to look for the best way on preventing or slow down the aging process. If money is not an issue, we want to try the most expensive beauty products that could help our skin to be healthy and have a younger-looking skin. We usually buy these products endorsed by a very well known celebrity. This is the reason why we sometimes overlooked some beauty products in the market that really works and less expensive.

By the way, have you heard Argan oil? Probably, this is your first time to hear this kind of oil. This oil is not yet endorsed by a celebrity, but it is wildly known in Morocco as the best oil to repair damage skin. This organic argan oil is rich in Vitamin E. It contains essential fatty acids, specifically omega-3 and omega 9, which are needed for proper health. It also has carotene, antioxidants, squalene and more. This powerful oil is good for all types of skin. It repairs damage hair, and it helps your nails to be alive again. It is 100% pure argan oil extracted from the nuts of the Argan tree. If you want to know more about this beauty product, you could check the official website by clicking the link that I have provided. So, I would suggest, when looking for anti-aging beauty products, don’t relied upon everything on what you have seen or heard from the celebrity.

Eden Nature Park & Resort

Yesterday, hubby and I climbed the mountain here in our place. It was in the afternoon when hubby asked me about Eden’s Nature Park & Resort. After telling him that the place is near to my cousin’s house, he quickly had told me that we will go there. We drove by motorcycle climbing the mountain.

It was actually fun while back riding the motorcycle. The nature along the way was superb. Even hubby amazed the beauty of the nature. Unfortunately, we were not able to get in the park because we arrived late in the afternoon and day tour is open until 4:00 pm only. I thought I could try the horseback riding on that day, or fishing on the fishing village and eating the fish you catch.

Photos taken from the official website of Eden Nature Park & Resort.

Anyway, the guard gave me the flyers, so I would know the rates, packages and all activities you could do while inside the park. I am hoping that we could visit the place before we could go back in Sweden.

Cock Fighting

Sorry guys if I wasn't be able to reciprocate your visit this weekend for I was very busy for three days. Before the weekend, our neighbor came over to our house and was looking for my father. My father told me that our neighbor wanted to rent my vacant lot for three days only. I asked what would they do for that three days? He said, they will put a small cock fighting (roosters fighting) as part of the yearly tradition of the village feasts. Well, to make the story short, I agreed with the amount they paid for my lot, and it gave me three-day business also. Lol What I mean is, I put a little store inside my lot where the cock fighting was held, and before that, I had to shop for the stuffs that I wanted to sell, which is why I was busy almost a week. Anyhow, the three-day business was so cool. I made a good profit because usually, drinks like beers and soft drinks have a double price from the retail price. My two kids and niece were my helpers. They had fun helping me at the store. The photo below was just a rehearsal for the roosters to condition their body for the real fight.

Construction Supplies

Two houses in the neighborhood have been constructing a new house a couple of weeks ago. Everyday we could hear the noise of the construction like grilling, the coming of the delivery truck for the construction materials, and pounding of the materials with a hammer and a lot more. Before my brother has arrived from Canada, he already had a planned to put an extension to the side of our house and make it as his room.

Now, the constructor arrived yesterday, and he gave copies for the materials needed for the construction. Everything is available at the nearby hardware except for the fasteners and screws. I wish I could easily order it through online for I know there are lots of industrial online stores for construction materials. The constructor ordered security fasteners and security screws, and I couldn't find it at the hardware near to our place. I was planning to go at the downtown today or at the biggest hardware here and look for these items. I have confidence that I could find these materials at one of the biggest hardware here in our place. In addition, these materials are not so heavy, so there is no problem with me if I buy it right away.

The Kids Last Summer Vacation.

Here are other photos of my lovely, and Cutie kids. You could see on their faces how they enjoyed the banana boat ride. They were not scared if they were pulled far away from the shore. Anyway, for those who don't know who are these kids. The girl in blue swimsuit is my niece, and her name is Jaja, and the girl in pink swimsuit is my godchild, and her name is Miel. The two kids are first degree cousins.


Best Place to Explore for Everyone.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PA Tourism for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have never been in the United States of America, but I am wishing that I and my family could visit this place in the future. I have close family relatives and friends living in Pennsylvania, California, Alabama, Florida and North Carolina. So, it is not impossible for us to visit USA one day. The only problem is that I don’t have the budget yet for this trip.


Anyway, when planning a trip to USA, and money is not the subject, which states would you like to visit first? If you asked me, I would like to visit Pennsylvania for I wanted to experience roadtrips in this state.  I have read that pa-roadtrips will do the planning for you, and all you have to do is to pack your things and then go. I am so interested to explore at the Steel City.  I wonder how tall the buildings are, and I also would like to visit Kidsylvania for I am sure; this would be a great adventure for my family.

If you love nature, then you should try to walk on the trails, just don’t put out of your mind your camera and enjoy taking pictures the beauty of nature.  Where to stay while in Pennsylvania is not an issue, for there are places to stay like hotels and motels, cabin, Bed & Breakfast & Country Inn, resorts, vacation homes, campgrounds and farmstays if you like. So, if you are planning to have a wonderful vacation soon, move your mouse to the link that I have provided, and click it. Feel free to share with me which trip would you like to experience in Pennsylvania, USA.

All Natural and Freshest Food in Town

I am sure this has happened to you: You were following a recipe faithfully when suddenly the phone rings or an unexpected guest drops by or your child creates a mini-emergency. And by the time you get back to the stove, the gravy is lumpy, the beans have stuck to the pot, or some other kitchen disaster has occurred. So what do you do now? You probably would like to stop cooking and pick up the phone and then order a food from nearby food store, or maybe you would try to undo what you have done in the kitchen.

Well, I am talking for a food you prepared for your family. But what if, you are expecting guests at home or office, would you still like to prepare it at home? I guess it would be better if you could order food from catering services for faster and safer and less work. Anyway, I have heard that Catering Companies in Austin has no longer been accepting catering services, but they have five branches now in Austin, TX. You could visit the restaurant anytime you wanted for they are open 24 hours a day. At Kerbey Lane Catering Austin, you can be sure of that the foods you ate are all fresh and natural specifically the meat. They served breakfast, lunch and dinner. Since today is Sunday, and usually kids will wake up late in the morning, why not treat them for brunch at Kerbey Lane Café. I am sure your family will be delighted.

The Kids are Back to School

This was taken only this summer at Bluejaz Beach Resort in Island Garden City Of Samal. The little girl wearing blue swimsuit is my niece, and the other girl is my niece's cousin, and she is also my godchild. These two girls are best of friends. Since, they are back to school, these two little girls are missing each other now for they live far from each other. They will be together during summer time, Christmas holiday, and sometimes on weekends. Thanks to our advance technology, these kids still have a good communication because of the cell phone.

Giant Banana

This was the small banana tree I bought last Kadayawan Festival. The seller told me that this was what they called giant banana. Well, she was not lying to me, the fruits sure indeed a big one compared to the ordinary banana tree. I bought this for only 10.00 pesos per tree ($.25 Cents) and I bought three trees.
