Weekend Spree - Food Trip


This is the first time this year that hubby and I used our weekend just to stroll around. We bought food for Chase (our dog) in Cartimar, went to Mall of Asia to buy some things for my baking needs, good thing I saw a shirt from Bench store and hubby agreed to he like it for me, and that really made me happy! =) But I know that it’s a bad sign that we walk and walk around because we get tired and we felt that we're so hungry and that’s a big oh, no! on my diet plans. But still, we order foods as if we are celebrating our Valentines dinner ogether but we are really happy digging our plates while we talk on everything from politics, histories, other countries folk tales to vampires and witches real stories. I love to converse with hubby like this, we are both wide readers and I really like it (though we both argue sometimes at one point), but it's okay we laugh it off after a while.

We had our snacks in Cartimar, mango shake and beef shawarma.


seafood past and stone baked pepperoni pizza at bistro ravioli in MOA

hubby's favorite cake, tiramisu


Today, we went to my dental appointment at SM Sucat. And it’s good that they have their mall wide weekend sale and I use that opportunity on buying sale pocketbooks of Kresley Cole, my new office shoes and some kitchen stuffs. I really love weekends! =)

Get Well Soon!

My sister was hospitalized this afternoon because of UTI (urinary tract infection) and because all her antibiotics seem made her weaker and she got a high fever that she can barely walk by herself. So the went to the hospital with my other sister and my Mom and admitted herself because she said she couldn't take the pain anymore. I visited her after work since Olivarez Hospital is along my way home and my guess is as good as the stars in the sky, I saw a small family reunion inside her private room. But I’m happy that she’s okay now and she’s laughing when she said to her doctor that she need to get well soon because there are mall sale at SM Sucat (ha-ha!) this weekend.


When I had a mild UTI on our last annual physical exams, I went to a doctor and just like any other check-ups he gave me lots of high priced medicines. But I said to myself, all I want to clear this infection is to drink lots of water and the miracle buco juice. And it really works! I tried myself not to drink soft drinks or sodas anymore and at first I don’t like the taste of the buco juice but as I drink it often, I learned to love it and my UTI is gone!


I hope my sister will follow our advice though I know she hates buco juice just like her son. But now, all she needs is to rest. Get well soon my dearest sister =)

On weight plans

It is my long time wish to at least trim down the fats I gained since I got married 5 years ago. My hubby loves to eat and sometimes doubles his servings during stressful days at work. I can’t help but to cook mouth watering foods for him and I’m not being conscious on eating and eventually gained a lot.

Now that New Year has started and I know this is the right time to monitor again some extra weights I had last holiday season. But my problems are I have so many things to consider before getting down to business. And good thing I checked on this site that offers weight program that don’t need to starve myself or get a month long vacation from work because I need a surgery. The health risks involve in gastric bypass surgery are very often downplayed. And I don’t want to risk my life on it. I know lots of celebrities are using this because I can see how they easily loosen up their fats and weigh down without suffering or without complications because they are medically supervised by hcg treatment program. And to top that, not only celebrities but thousands of people have used this diet treatment program and I will surely try this one because it has no outrageous exercise program and no dangerous pills involve.


I know I have to push through with my plans on taking down any excess bulges I have on my stomach. And this treatment program is the answer to my weight problems.

Something New


It was a very fulfilling weekend for me. Hubby and I went for a stroll in the busy Divisoria and bought anything we’d like because I admit prices in this side of town is way too cheap compare to any market places here in Metro Manila. Hubby wants to change the designs of our kitchen ceilings and we look for the place where we can choose from many varieties of hanging plastic plants or vines. Hubby really likes to decorate, sometimes, he’s the one asking me to change and arrange our things and decorations. We need to change the flowers, better look for a wall d├ęcor and many more. But I like that, at least even on his busiest days, he can still do such thing.


Hubby asked me to cook something different this morning. I can’t think of anything else to cook besides my usual weekend menu. And then I think of the menu I had when we attended the Nestle club Christmas party at that is Shanghai Lava Sticks, I have some doubts if they would like that since they need to eat the paprika and it may look awful to them but I was wrong, they like it and they just eat it non stop! Oh my, I thought I lost my magic cooking touch but I did it again, and I’m so happy.


It’s been another week and I’m getting all restless watching Pinoy Big Brother live streaming, but my bet was evicted and eventually I can now sleep early. Bu I’m glad I found a new set of friends while really enjoying the show.

Year of the Tiger

Personality Traits:


People born under the year of the Tiger tend to have very go-ahead personalities, they love to be the centre of attention and are often very fortunate and full of drive. Although they are often skeptical by nature they can make rash decisions, but above all they are loving, giving, and genuine. They tend to immerse themselves in any of their undertakings and while full of optimism they are not materialistic. Intensity as opposed to logical best describes a Tiger person. At their worst they are stubborn, self-centered awkward but on the plus side they can also be sensitive and sympathetic. They will go to great lengths to reap their revenge and detest being ignored. As a tiger, life will be filled with just about every emotion and very volatile; and being great optimists life will also be full of many challenges

The year of the Tiger: is a very likely to be a volatile year, everything is taken to its limit in this big and bold year. It can also be a year of war, disasters and all kinds of disputes, it is a year for massive change but this can also bring out the best.




Hubby said that since it is year of the tiger, he gave me this cute wall tiger and one of hubby’s Christmas gift to me last year. I kept on wishing that this will be my best year and I really pray that something good will happen. We have so many plans and I hope that all of it will come true. Cross fingers, please! =)

Patience and Happiness

It’s been a slightly tough days I had last week. Some, I get over it and some; I still need to stretch more my patience so I can move on till the time says off to work. We wonder how she can spend her days frowning and sniggering with us and then suddenly change her mood at the other side. But I have been at my work for six years not to know her true self. Maybe we learned to adjust more and dealing with her than to get affected with the ways she treats us. I must try to ignore this feeling in me to tell her she’s unfair because it doesn’t make sense. I respected her and I know she would realize that.



My sister celebrated her birthday in Tony Romas in Alabang Town Center. My whole family and my Aunt were there and I am happy that we can still bond together amidst our schedule conflict. I would like to say that this is really an expensive dinner for me and I can’t treat my family like this if I am the one to celebrate my birthday (ha-ha!) We enjoyed it and we continue our bonding at Starbucks. Happy Birthday, sis! =)

Not Well

And I thought this is supposed to be my year.  But here I am, feeling sick and a bit sad again.  My nephews who stayed with us last week had a cough and colds and time will come that I will also have those because they stayed in my room and since it is air-conditioned the bacterias were having the feast of their lives.  Before I knew it, I'm already sneezing and having a slight cough. 

 

I’m a bit sad because on some personal issues.  But I can manage it now and yes, I was really upset yesterday.  I guess I’m having my period anytime now.  If I’m alone in our room, I always thought of resigning from my job this year to concentrate on having a baby but I guess I have to wait till my husband settle on his work because they are having a big transition in their department with a new boss, new rules, new heads and he felt that they are all in a limbo right now. 

 

Why do I feel that there’s a gloomy air around here in our work place? Or is it only me?   Or maybe everybody still has this vacation hang-over.  I felt so relax last week, I hope I can still have that precious time that I can wake up anytime I like and I can sleep late for all I care =) I guess I need to wish for that too.

Happy New Year 2010!

We are getting bigger and better as we celebrate the New Year in my parents house in Laguna. My aunt’s family came and they brought “relyenong bangus (stuffed fish) which is my super favorite. I love how my Aunt cooked it, very tasty and you will always crave for more. My hubby’s Aunt also came with her family and they brought cake and some fireworks for the kids delight. I am as usual the head of the kitchen and good thing we have enough house help that I never felt so tired doing all the cooking and making the dessert. After the church mass we had games that were really fun and the kids and the adults really enjoyed before the feast. My sister requested a mango panna cotta and it was quite a best seller that night. It is her birthday today and we always celebrated her day in Tagaytay but the other car’s wheel had a trouble so we will probably had to dine in at a mall in Alabang.



We felt so blessed this year. Though Tatay, (my father in law) passed away last April, I know that he’s happy seeing his family doing good, healthy and okay. I need to fulfill my New Year’s resolution that I’ll be a good girl now (ha-ha!) and how I really wish I can do that (he-he) And I have to put an extra effort to diet now that I felt that I really ate much when we had a long vacation at work. Good luck with that.



Anyways, Happy 2010 everyone!!! God bless us all! =)
