Looking For Some Lights

Our soon-to-be abode is now on the painting phase. It was such a delight to see all the three rooms already painted. At this very moment, the living room, dining room and kitchen are well on their way to the finish line too. We are hopeful to transfer to our new home by the end of July, a perfect time to celebrate also our 9th wedding anniversary which falls on August 4.

Now that painting is nearing its completion, we are now in the lookout for nice furnishings as well as lights. Well, pin lights have already been in place and now we are in search for wall and ceiling lights. I know this will be a bit hard of an undertaking for us, since our area has very limited supply of wonderful and amazing lighting products. We have already made a first round of browsing through stores for the perfect lights on our house but haven't found anything yet that suited our tastes.

I am looking forward to find a chandelier with no complex design, yet classy and modern in detail, just like the lights I found at Shop Premier. Kindly take a good look at the right - - this is what I wanted for our living room, and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I could find one here. Well, this would indeed make us busy then.

I realized that it really is stressful sometimes when you are undergoing house construction, most especially when funds are a little low. Anyway, I am optimistic that everything would just be in place soon.

The Famous Internet

The internet has been getting lots and lots of popularity nowadays. I think every people in the world know what internet is, and if there were still mum about it, then they only comprise a very little percentage of the whole world's population. As I have noticed, most offices have internet connections; schools, stores and restaurants too. Most households are getting an internet subscription too - - thanks to various internet providers who gradually made their packages affordable.

The internet offers different kinds of leisure a person craves for, that is why it is one of the most sought-after entertainment. Social networks, online gaming, video streaming and research, all these things could already be done with just a few clicks. Internet could be a source of income too, that is why a lot of income-generating websites are on the climb. Lots of businesses have put up their own websites for marketability enhancement, as long as they engage with hosting providers having the best hosting awards.

I was amazed that even our local entities here are having their sites on the internet already. Some online shops on different social networking sites have already made their own online abodes too. That just goes to say that the internet's popularity is going nowhere but up and up.

Reminiscing Summer

This post is already overdue. I should have made this earlier during summer but then again, I was busy with so many things that blogging took a backseat for a semester. Anyway, I would still like to feature our summer escapades, as they were so fun-filled and exciting.

I have been to three very nice places during summer and I would really love to go back there again. Going to these places may not be as costly as going to other countries or the like, but it was really fun to watch nature unfold right here in our own country.

Well, our summer took us to the following:

Britania Islands, San Agustin, Surigao del Sur

Britania is a group of island locally found in our region. They are still very raw as far as beauty is concerned and that what makes them amazing and superb. The white sands are so fine, they really felt good underneath the feet. Although it was hot during the time we went there, it was nonetheless fun to behold such beautiful creation. Our trip to Britania was our office's way of celebrating our over-all championship of the Mindanao Palaro held last April. I brought along the kids, too bad hubby was not able to join us since this trip was a working day and he was not able to take a leave of absence. This day was also my youngest 4th birthday, so the trip was my birthday treat for him. The picture on the right was proof enough of the kids' good time at the island. The sands were indeed so nice to play with.

Tinuy-An Falls, Bislig, Surigao del Sur

This is my second time to personally see a falls. The first was the Maria Cristina Falls in Iligan about 5 years ago. Anyway, I really love this falls and it was just truly amazing. The waters flowing from above were so powerful and yet so smooth and cool, it was really fun dipping into the water. The kids loved it a lot too, which could evidently be determined on their faces. My father also loved the water that he wished he could have stayed and dipped longer. Mother was also very impressed that she really went through the falling waters. I had fun lying down on the rocks with the water flowing underneath - - it was like a body massage and sun-tanning rolled into one, lol! See the magnificent waters at left? They would certainly render you speechless when seen in person (well, for me, it did). This trip was indeed memorable.

Bluejaz, Samal Island, Davao

Bluejaz Resort is just a 15-minute trip away from Davao City - - by boat, that is. It was a treat for our volleyball team for being the champion during the recently concluded Mindanao Palaro that we had last April, as mentioned above, that is. We went there as a team, together with our husbands and it was such a blast. We enjoyed dipping into the pool, while sliding our ways through their giant pool slides. There was also a fire dance at night and other forms of entertainment. (By the way, that's me and hubby above, taking a break from the slides to make a pose.)

Fun times are so nice to reminisce, and my summer was definitely one of those fun times.

A Hope For Mother In Law

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.



My mother in law has been suffering from disability to walk ever since a series of mild stroke hit her late last year. She has diabetes and the different parts of her body has been slowly affected by the dreaded disease. She even spent her Christmas last December in the hospital, for close monitoring of her blood pressure as well as creatinine level which were so seriously soaring up in enormous degrees.

Due to the mild stroke she suffered (it happened three times in one month), the left part of her body became numb and now she is unable to use her legs for walking. In the absence of a wheelchair, she is able to walk only with the assistance of my father in law or anyone who was tasked to take care of her. It is really a sad fate for her and for the rest of the family, most especially since she is still 53. Now my brother in law is looking for someone who is competent and passionate about taking care of disabled persons so that mom could still enjoy every moment. Fortunately, after I came across a site called NMEDA, a gush of optimism has sprung within me and hubby. We will be informing brother about it so that he and father wouldn't be able to bear the physical burden anymore.

The NMEDA stands for National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association, which is dedicated in helping disabled people - - as far as mobility is concerned. If you are also having the same condition, feel free to browse their site and find the dealer nearest you.

New Family Member

I am very glad to announce that our family has a new member. Nope, I haven't given birth recently since I haven't been pregnant the past four years. Our new bundle of joy is a Labrador puppy, which is still about 2 weeks old.


We call him Kobe, because hubby is so much of a LA Lakers fan. He is the first canine that we have, and we are pretty much excited to take good care of him. At first, I was doubtful if we could give the puppy a good home, because he was so fragile, so thin and dirty the very moment he was given to us. But looking at him slowly gaining weight and clean, I am confident that Kobe would be a very wonderful and lovable dog.

My kids love Kobe as their own little brother. Together, we are learning about dog care, dog training and the like.

Welcome Kobe!

Back To School

Last Tuesday, June 15, 2010 was officially the first day of school for my three kids - well, for the school year 2010-2011. I was pretty much excited this time because all my kids are now going to school.

Here's a quick pose of the kids my husband took before we headed off to school . . .

Nikki- Grade 3, Justin- Kinder 2, CJ- Nursery

This is going to be a tough year for me since I already have three students to attend to. I am back to waking up early in the morning since the three of them has to be in school before 7:30am. Whew!

So far I have already covered 7 books - - 15 books more to go . . .
