My Uncle Rene is business minded person. Sometimes when he had a time to visits Dad and Mom in our family house, I always wanted to talk to him because he shares some valuable lessons in life. He wishes he can be like him in the near future and I must say he’s quite confident now than ever before. His family is now living comfortably thanks to my Uncle’s ability in trading business. He shares what he learns and he never forgets to remind us that we don’t need large amount of capital to start in this kind of business.
I received a call last weekend from him and we talk about our families, my work, his business and he said if I’m really interested, he can share something about Tim sykes reviews. Well, my Uncle gives me this inspirations that maybe I can venture in other types of business aside from being employed through my entire career. He used to be a loyal employee before but he think that I is not enough for his family to live the way he wanted so he follow his instinct and now he is so successful.
When a friend asked me to join them in a dinner meeting with Patrimonio family, I honestly told her I can’t come for so many reasons. I don’t feel like going out after work because I was dead tired, the meeting place was quite too far from the office, Friday means heavy traffic going to MRT and the MRT during rush hours means disaster. I have lots of alibis in my mind but it means a lot to have this meeting for our May 5 party for Tin. So even if I have hundred reasons not to go, I have one main reason to see them.
I have to go to Araneta in Cubao to meet them but we decided to go first at Eastwood, Libis while the others are watching the basketball finals. And while at my friends car going to Libis I suddenly felt goose bumps and all the memories came back when I used to travel from Cubao to Libis every day for almost 3 years. It’s amazing how the place transformed from having just a few business buildings to a well known spots now with all tallest structures everywhere. I have this urged to go to IBM building and see if my old friends are still there but I need to reserved the seats in a Korean restaurant and I’m having fun with my other 2 friends whose with me that time.
I’ll promise myself I will go there again if time permits. I still haven’t show hubby the world of Eastwood City. We will do it some other time. ♥
Being so sweet and thoughtful are some of my hubby’s best traits. He gave me anything I wanted as long as he can afford it and he’d surprised me with it as long as he can hide it. As for me, I always make sure he really likes anything that I would like to buy for him so to avoid mistakes, I asked him what he wants and I guess that is not a surprise at all.
But one day he approached me and asking me about gift rocket gift cards online that he said his friends is using instead of buying gifts and giving it personally. He said many of his colleagues who want to give gifts but can’t think of anything to buy is now enjoying this with just one click on their computer. I think that is cool since most of us nowadays would like to spend it in any way that we like with less hassle on the recipient of the gift cards.
I even joked about it and said maybe he’s thinking another surprise for me and he just smile as he always do, no confirmation, no agreements. Well, maybe I will be the one to surprise him one day.
Sometimes, I hate to say that I want that “something” in front of my hubby. Because I told you before, if he things its cool and its pretty and it looks good on me whatever it is, he’ll find time to buy it and surprise me. I don’t want surprises but with hubby around, life is full of surprises. And I admit I love it. Last weekend, I told hubby to see what’s new in the Fossil watch store. I was fascinated to a pink colored watch before and looking at the glass display, I saw one new watch that looks perfect for me. I even tried it but told hubby, it’s quite expensive, I should save money to buy it and he just smile and said, why wait for next year? I answered, because I still have watches to wear and it’s also fossil brand and I thought I should have new one next year.
But that’s my husband! And his nephew suddenly told me when I came home last night if I already see the watch they bought. My heart plummeted to the ground as I anticipated that it must be the watch I promised to buy next year. He keeps on denying but he gave up because I freaked out and insisting him to show it to me! And there it was my brand new beautiful pink watch. I so love it! Thank you so much hubby! I can’t thank you enough for all the love and ehem.. surprises ♥
My cousin loves her work and at the same time giving her
best to finished her studies.Our family
is so proud of her for making it this far despite of having troubles keeping up
with her hectic schedules.Her patience
and perseverance paid off and now she’s busy on her gmat preparation.She as full of promises for her future and
for her family as well that we can’t help but to applaud her knowing she would
want to take an MBA.She’s been dreaming
of that for so long and now that everyone’s on her side to help her make it
through, there’s no way she can’t have the best school for her graduate
Right now, she’s taking her time to focus on her
application.I told her to take a short
vacation just to unwind and relax because that’s what she needed most.And she deserves to take a breather for all
the hard work and sacrifices. My aunt wants me to come with my cousin because
she thinks I also deserve to take a vacation and that’s because I always asked
them to take me so I can tour with them.But I’m so proud to have a family like them.I always feel at home.
Summer time and kids are all in school vacation much to the delight of my son, Nathan. He loves to play with his older cousins and he enjoys every minute with them. Nathan already knew how to feel sad whenever they will bid him goodbye or they are not around. They wish I can still have another baby so he’ll not feel alone and that is our fervent prayers, too. But for now, we are his best friends and he and his Dad’s biggest playground is the Mall of Asia.
Now he’s trying to ride not only in the usual Merry-go round but he loves to try other children’s rides like the new Honey bee ride at the sea side area and the indoor Ferris wheel. I can’t believe he’s not scared riding that high unlike me who doesn’t want to just even try. I hate the feeling of like something is twisting your stomach and making me throw up.
He’s having a time of his life playing. And it feels like I’m being a kid again seeing how happy he is. I simply love his smile. It brightens everyone else feeling around him. Well, another to-do lists whenever he hears the word, Mall.
My aunt used to say that she and my uncle wanted to make some changes on their house. She’s been very patience in saving money for a long time just to have this dream house and lawn renovations and she wanted it to be perfect for her family. Her children are all grown up now and staying in a boarding school. That’s why she dreamt of having a beautiful family yard just for their family bonding when my cousins go home during school breaks. I can feel for her because that’s all I wanted during off office hours and weekends, to be with my family and explore the world with them.
To save time and money, my aunt is now scouting for a company that can handle the job on yard. Her friends keep telling her about Installitdirect and since her friends already had their pavements and lawns renovated, she should trust the experienced one. One of her colleague even shows her newly transformed patios and if she wanted she’ll recommend her trusted riverside pavers. My aunt is now getting excited with all these good stories and everyone else now wanted to get involve. That’s how our strong family ties works and I’m proud to have a family like this.
I know I had a lot of problems sticking to my promises that I have to cut all my food intakes and go for a rigid exercise, plans of enrolling to a gym and fulfilling all these this year. But I just can’t resist all these lovely offers from a living well site offering as much as 60% discount when you purchase a voucher. Sometimes I have no choice but to avail it once I find it truly tempting especially when it is all about buffet lunch or dinner in a hotel or a salt scrub plus body spa near our place.
I surprised hubby in his post birthday last 2 weeks ago with a buffet lunch at Manila Pavilion and though he had an idea after I insists to go there after we hear a mass at Malate Church, he just smile and said, I think I know where were going. And yes, it was an amazing experience touring the city just to eat endlessly. But what I like most is their desserts (I think I like the main courses in Trader’s more) and their special freebies of bunny milk chocolates. Well, it is just once every 3 months or it depends on the offers but I think I like the idea of buying more (in a less price, of course) for to have a taste of what Metro Manila hotels can offer.
My cousin wanted to make sure that she’ll be doing great at school. With the sky rocketing tuition fees and other miscellaneous that you need to pay, she can’t afford to lose her opportunities to graduate on time. She wanted to start by having to learn more on her incoming subjects before the school year start so she can have both time at school and at work so she won’t sacrifice her studies.
She often told me having troubles in some subjects before. I’m always telling her to check on some site that will help her deal with all her hard subjects and is willing to support her all throughout her learning days. She told me she would try a palo alto language tutors that was recommended by her class mates and friends at school. I said she can try and maybe it will really help her.
Science subjects is her forte and I many are telling her that maybe in the near future, she can be one of the tutors in her favorite subject like physics. Why not, I saw her perseverance in her studies. But for now I wanted her to do what’s best for her and hope she’ll succeed.
Summer is here! And it’s scorching hot outside! I have to wear sunscreen on my face and I’m not going out without my umbrella because it will totally ruin my day. I have colds now because of heat and cold condition when going out and back to our air-conditioned office.
I think of ways to ease the feeling and when we went to the Mall last weekend. I saw a kiosk reminding me of my elementary days, an ice scramble! And I’m proud to introduce it my baby Nate and hubby’s delighted to know that its back and he said he likes it too during his younger years. The old scramble mix is with powdered milk and liquid Hershey’s chocolate on top but now I saw that variants of toppings like nips candies, marshmallows, choco bits and others are available for your scramble. Children fall in line just to have this affordable and yet delicious ice craze.
I also made some fruit ice candy at home and that will surely make our day during every hot afternoon. I having a second thought organizing a swimming outing for our family, I can’t bear to swim in an open pool like that, never.
I have been thinking of delicious yet nutritious snack for my family especially with Nathan likes on something new to eat every day. Well, he gets that from his Dad and I’m quite worried that it will harm his health than do good on his growing age.
When I met my high school best friend last week she shared the same sentiments towards her daughter before but she found out from her colleagues about a healthy seeds that becomes their daily consumption. I became so curious that I dig on the net more and learned how to eat chia seeds and I found out that there are so many things I can do with that seeds that will help my family to have the healthy foods they badly needed every day.
By reading the chia seeds blog, I found out what’s my friend’s been telling me about it. I can find more ways to introduce it to my son and family like they are just having their usual snacks but now with more nutritional values. I have to keep on eye with my son’s eating habits and I just hope he will not be that picky on foods but now with the help of chia seeds, I can be more at ease with what he eats.
We always know Nathan as sweet little boy with a happiest spirit on earth. But as he grows fast and now a little toddler, he’s behavior is changing day by day and throwing tantrums is on the top list. He wants to get things that are not allowed for him to play and he cry his heart out whenever he can’t get want he wants. His pediatrician said I should have one person to look at him personally whenever hubby and I are in the office. Nate’s age means exploration, wandering, curiosity and testing all the things he sees around him.
Nate wanted to play the fork and spoon and he mightily throwing a fit. ha-ha!
And even with our smiling faces in the pictures, his dramatic pose says it all :)
But Nate’s tantrums can be easily diverted to other thing, in which I think we should need to be on alert on that. Sometimes he used his moods to get on the way and then smiles happily on you when he has it. Soon he will grow up and will no longer allow us to call him baby. But he will always be our little prince and for now, we will enjoy being with him every single day with or without his tantrums :)
I always wanted to travel. That’s one thing that hubby and I have in common, we love to travel and we wanted to explore. Travelling abroad is our long time dream and I am wishing that we can do it in the near future. I wish to travel in Australia and New Zealand and I was so fascinated on their breath taking places and their wonderful sceneries. It’s like being in a wonderland. I wanted to try their famous bungee jumping sites and conquer my fear of heights.
My friend and her family migrated to New Zealand last year and she always reminds me to visits them if we decided to travel abroad. She said she’s still not familiar with the whole places but I shouldn’t worry much because we can get the best New Zealand travel agentin town and we can tour around with no hassle at all. She told me once I’m there, I will be thinking to live in that place too. She wishes we can be together with our own family.
Well, that really inspires me and gives me this will to save and plan for this to happen. Hubby said sooner the better. And I have to cross my fingers for that.
To the man I truly adore. For the wonderful and generous daddy and husband in this lifetime, it’s his special day today and it is Holy Thursday. Well, all the last week of March and first week of April celebrators falls to the Lenten Season week and hubby is used to that every year. As we observe Holy Week, I can’t help but to greet happily the man who really deserves the word happiness.
I have a surprise treat for him this Easter Sunday at Manila Pavillion and he kept on asking me where are we going that day because I told him to reserve that day for just the two of us since my Mom really wanted to get Nathan and stayed in their place for even a just a day. And I take that as one opportunity to spend a day having a late celebration for him.
I can’t thank the Lord enough for giving me my hubby whose very patient and understanding (minus all some minor differences which me maturely settled in a matter of minutes) but above all that, I wish him good health, great job, wonderful years ahead. I love you, honey and may the good Lord bless you more.
I started my Monday at the office knowing I have to finish before the long holidays all the papers and checking to be submitted next week. I still have manage my time dividing all the works I have right now and April fools get into me and I have another work assignment in current lists right now but you can’t do anything to complain because If I will not accept it, then who will do it?
I have to shake off this feeling that long weekend is coming but my body says, I hope tomorrow is holiday because my body feels that I need to rest. I have a full day everyday and how I wish I can find what I’m checking for by just looking in one binder. But it’s not so I have to endure taking all the binders in my table, flipping each page one by one and do it all over again if I missed one item.
Well, maybe I’m new to the job and once I perfected the process, that is will be easy as 1-2-3. I have full hopes this April and I just have to give it all. I need to stay focus and positive always. Aja, aja! ♥
