Christmas 2009

We had a fun Christmas Eve, not as jolly as before but its all I can ask for. I don't know what it abut this years Christmas that I felt a little sad, maybe because last year I have so much moolah and this year's was the opposite. That is maybe the reason why little J now feels and understand the importance of moolah.

December 22, Mama took little to her office for the first time. She introduced her to her officemates, this is a milestone because she tried to keep little J a secret to everyone else. In fact at first she doesn't want little J to call me Mommy so that nobody would know. We'll it was the negative connotation of being a single mom. So this year, she finally let it out and introduced little J to her officemates. Little j, along with the other kids went around singing Christmas carols in turn the employees gives money for them. She was so excited getting all the money. For the first time she really value money, maybe because this year she felt the lack of it. She got Php950, she was so happy and and kept on tellingme stories on how she got them. That was morning.

In the afternoon, it was a different story but that should be written in another blog. So as not to spoil the momment.

December 24

We went to SM San Lazaro to buy groceries for our Noche Buena, since we are not in a festive mood I asked for just a simple sopas. That is my only request, we decided not to cook pasta anymore, we just cooked Ribs and Chicken, that should be enough along witht hte ham and keso de bola. I texted my SIL to bring pitchy-pitchy but she said they already bought cake from Red Ribbon and Ice cream from S&R.

When we got home Nong-nang are already there. We rested for a while for some cupcakes and chit chat. At 3pm we started cooking. Nang was in charcge of the sopas. I cooked the ribs and chicken. Everu once in a while we peak in the freeezer to get some ice cream.

It was a simple Christmas, not the festive one that we used to have mainly because we down graded our refrigerator to a smaller one and we are worried about the left overs. We just wanted to cook just enough, so as ther will be no left over at all, since the cake, ham and ice cream already took a lot of space.

Little J was asleep at the strike of midnight, I tried to tell her to sleep early so we can wake her up at midnight but she just had to watch PBB. I didn't get to eat at all, I stayed with little J on the sofa while she sleeps. I'm still hoping I can wake her up, well she didn't she just more cranky.

After they finished eating Noche Buena, its time for exchange gifts. I am glad that eventhough I am realy running low on funds this Christmas I was still able to give gifts to all my family memebers and even my inaanak.

We'll that capped off our Noche Buena, I'll post the pictures as soon I get it from my bro.

18lbs gone!

Hi, it's been a while since I posted. Did I mention that I lost 18lbs? I didn't do much, its just the stress and the problems that took the pounds off. I knew I lost a few pounds because my clothes fit me better, but I was shocked to know that it was in fact 18lbs. I was more surprised to actually see it in photo. So here ia s photo of me and little J, taken yesterday. I included an old pic taken a few months ago to compare.Scroll back for my older post to see how much different I look.

CNN Heroes: Vote Efren Penaflorida

For the past 12 years, Peñaflorida and his team of teen volunteers have taught basic reading and writing to children living on the streets. Their main tool: A pushcart classroom.

Stocked with books, pens, tables and chairs, his Dynamic Teen Company recreates a school setting in unconventional locations such as the cemetery and municipal trash dump.

Peñaflorida knows firsthand the adversity faced by these children. Born into a poor family, he lived in a shanty near the city dump site. But he says he refused to allow his circumstances to define his future.

"Instead of being discouraged, I promised myself that I would pursue education," he recalls. "I will strive hard; I will do my best."

Get involved: Dynamic Teen Company
In depth: CNN Heroes
In high school, Peñaflorida faced a new set of challenges. Gang activity was rampant; they terrorized the student body, vandalized the school and inducted members by forcing them to rape young girls, he says.

"I felt the social discrimination. I was afraid to walk down the street."

Peñaflorida remembers standing up to a gang leader, refusing to join his gang. That confrontation proved fateful. At 16, he and his friends "got the idea to divert teenagers like us to be productive," he says.

He created the Dynamic Teen Company to offer his classmates an outlet to lift up themselves and their community. For Peñaflorida, that meant returning to the slums of his childhood to give kids the education he felt they deserved.

"They need education to be successful in life. It's just giving them what others gave to me," he says.

Today, children ranging from ages 2 to 14 flock to the pushcart every Saturday to learn reading, writing, arithmetic and English from Peñaflorida and his trained teen volunteers

Web hosting Geeks

Have you visited the site webhostinggeeks. I revistedit recently. My domain name for my other blog just expired so I had to research on what to do about it. I wasn't the one who registered my domain name so I had no clue on how to do it. So I looked around and tried to find web site hosting something that can help me take back my blog. I left a message for the blogger who helped to ask for more help, this time the renewal of my domain. She said she didn't recieved any email regarding this. She told me that she is willing to help me out but she cannot remember the user name and the password. She believes that I should be the one to do it, she didn't recieved any email notifications. She told me to check my inbox if I recieved any of it, and I said yes I did. So it should only mean that I was the one who registered it. So I tried all the username that I would use to I can access my account, but unfortunately I was not able to access my account.

Then I got scared, a messaged popped out that says the account will be locked because of 3 attempted access. If it got locked it will create more problem for me. What I failed to see is the reset password button. I tries it and it was so easy to change the password, and because of that I was able to access my account and subsequently renewed my domain. I checked the webhostinggeeks site to learn more about web hosting, domain registrations, forum among other stuff. What I like about it nis that everything is included in the site. It can answer you every question. There are comparsion table for every service and site which is wonderful. You can compare apple to apple. So in just a few minutes, some click of a button I was able to renew it. It wast not that hard. I did it. Now my other site sweetytots is already up and running.


I am seeing a little bit of hope. Somehow I managed to pull myself up. I am not fully recovered yet, but at least I am not deparate anymore nor suicidal. Slowly, little my little I am seeing a bit of hope. One problem at a time, one torn per stem. Hopefully everything will be over soon.

Web Directories

Do you submit your website to web directories? I tried this, I submitted my website to numerous web directories. I read in an SEO specilist site that by doing so you can attract more traffic as well as maybe increase your pagerank. By submitting to web directories more links are added to your site, therefore more chances of traffic and page rank. Accourding to wikipedia: A web directory or link directory is a directory on the World Wide Web. It specializes in linking to other web sites and categorizing those links.

A web directory is not a search engine and does not display lists of web pages based on keywords; instead, it lists web sites by category and subcategory. The categorization is usually based on the whole web site rather than one page or a set of keywords, and sites are often limited to inclusion in only a few categories. Web directories often allow site owners to directly submit their site for inclusion, and have editors review submissions for fitness.

It will categorize you to sites that are of the same or related topics which can also help you to rate better in google in terms of page rank. There are a lot of web directories, I tried a few. I don't know if it worked but its worth a try than do nothing, right? Most web directory sites are easy to navigate, it just takes a few steps to register. There is a form that you should complete that ask simple questions like, url or your site, site name, user name, password, categories among others. There are sites that also ask for picture or even site description, most of the fields are optional, but the more information you give the more chance of directing more traffic to your site.


The American made a different choice when they voted Obama for president. Most say it is a risk making him president, a lot has different views about it. Some say that Obama didn't deliver what they expected him to do. Some say he is not good enough. Some say he is doing a great job with the economics. Being a Filipino, it really would not matter much for us, but we do care. If the United States rise up from the economic fall, most likely it will also pick up our economy and the rest of the world as well.

What I noticed is that, even with the different views of the world about him being the president, one thing is obvious. He made quite a stir with the United States politics, with the Americans and even in the whole world. He made a statement that even an underdog can emerge as a winner. More Americans took notice, more people gave a damn about politics, about their leader. That is what I wish for the Philippines, for more people to take notice, to actually care about our government, about our leader. We should all make our own contribution on how to make things work. We should give a hand if we want our country to rise. We should all exercise our right to vote. We should all give a damn about our own economy just like how the Americans cared about Obamanomics


Rio, sorry but I have to let you go.

Rio is my car, she got broken because of the flood. Tomorrow a mechanic is going to check if he can do something about it. The main problem is the computer box, it got broken because my cousin made a mistake of starting the car, even if we told him several times not to. Now I have to worry about the repair of the car, well It wont be better if I look for somebody else to blame. Rio will be fine after tomorrow, in fact it will be better than before, but I still have to let her go. I really need some money now, I will use it to start over. I am thinking of putting up something else, something that will earn monthly. I don't want to give on construction because I am honestly happy about it. I believe I am doing good with my just I just have to learn not to be so nice, I just have to be strict with the collections. Hopefully sooner or later I will have savings to buy another Rio, I'll check the used cars on sale.

Should I let go?

There is this person that is so important to me, but with the problems I am goign through it is much easier for me to let go. It should teach both of us to be stronger, I know it would be the right things to do but I also dont want him to feel that I gave up. I dont want to, but there is something wrong that's going on. I hope I am wrong. I hope that my judgement is a little cloudy.

Food Cart Construction

I would to offer Food Cart Construction now. I am really running out of ideas, maybe I should check some new torrents for new ideas. I will try anything just to look for new ways to find client for consturction and to eventually provide work for my workers. I need to find work now, but I don't think going back to employment will do me good. I need find new projects. Maybe I should set up a website that introduce my work and services. I should research about Simple interface that can tap Powerful search engine. I can add some perks like the download lots of games, music, films for free in to time without the fear of downloading empty and not complete file.

I love blogging. It am having a lot of fun doing it. Its been part of my life on a regular basis. I wishi can spend more time on it. I met a lot of good friends too. I would like to learn more about the techincal stuff of blogging. I have benefited so much from it already. That is why I am looking for the best web hosting. I am looking for the best web hosting service there is, but I don't have huge budget for it. So I went to a site that compares the services. There are sites that are budget friendly, that gives the basic needs. There are sites that gives the best service but also to expensive for me. There are sites that give away perks and promos like free domain name and email among others.

I was drawn to the best budget hosting site since I am really on a budget. They offer it the following rates

1 year: $4.95 per month
2 years: $2.75 per month
3 years: $1.99 per month

Free Domain Privacy Protection

Im losing the game

OMG! Im losing this game, I never thought I would. I am slowly sliding down, I really don't want to fall. I can't, it is not an option. This will just make my life far more complicated than it really is. I don't want care too much, in fact I don't want care at all. I thought it was just a game, a game that I can manipulate. It surprised me that am the one being manipulated. I am scared to death on what will become of me. I cannot let this happen to me again. I maybe just over reacting, but I am really scared. I cannot help it, I thought I am stronger than this.

Blogging 101

I have some few
Blogging Tips for beginners.

First, a blog should come naturally, meaning you don't have to stress out on what to write in your blog. You should speak freely rather than having a well thought of entry. For me, I'd rather read about something that is more natural, something on a more personal note rather than reading an entry that sounds like a college paper to be submitted to a professor.

My rule of thumb is that what I write is always what is true, something that comes out ffrom my heart rather than squeezed out of my mind. I find that easier to do.
What about you? what are your tips on writing blogs?

My sad birthday!

My birthday last August 1, didnt go so well. I expected it though, there is really nothing much to be happy about. Two of my clients wont pay me, which will total to about 100k, that is a big amount of money, which I really need. I didnt think that I would go bankrupt, but I am. Sometimes I dont even have enough to buy lunch. I am going through a very difficult phase. At the start of the day on my birthday, I tried to be happy. I really tried but things went from worse to worst. Sometimes I hate my mom so much for ruining everything for me. In fact I hate her most of the time, if I can stay away from her I would. She ruined my day, my birthday. At the start of the day she made me lose every composure that I had, and from 8am to till night I kept crying.

I was crying about everything, my work, money, my family my whole life. Then when I went to work, to the site I just gave them their salary and left immediately, Im already crying on myh way there. Then Im off to the other site to submit the as-built plans. I know that I am going to a war. I came face to face to the woman that I feel so evil I'd like to pull her hair out maybe even her eyes. She is just so inconsiderate, very selfish and just out of this world evil. I hat her to high heavens, but I cannot do anything about it because she is my client so I burst into more tears. It was about 12noon and I was crying till 3pm. She wont pay me for somthing I already finished. Its a job done and she still wont pay me. I honestly wanted to sue her, I even consulted a lawyer and I will charge her the full amount plus "danyos", for all the heartache she caused me. I left hell at 3pm, still crying and still without the payment, I havent eaten lunch yet and so does little J. They dont have a heart and if I were a witch Id cast a spell so that they will not earn a single cent from their buisness. I cried while driving home, I pass by Mcdonalds to buy food for little J. When I got home I was still too frustrated that I went on crying till I doze of to sleep.

One good thing is that my brother and his wife is thoughtful enough to bring cake and pancit for me to celebrate. I wanted to celebrate but I am too lonely. I cant just tell myself to smile when I am bursting with anger and frustration. A few hours later we just ate dinner and little J and Nangnang joined me in the bedroom. Little J was too tires too she fell aslepp without taking her milk. I just told her stories and without us knowing she already fell asleep.

Then one thing happened, my worker texted me, at around 10pm greeting me happy birthday. He asked me if I was happy the whole day, since he knew that I was not, becuase he was the only one that is with us when I was crying my heart out in "hell" the site. It wasnt really a big deal, but it was sweet of him to ask if I am ok. Then he told me that it was also his birthday 2 days before mine, and just like me he is crying. It turned out that he caught his wife with another man and she even has the guts to threw him out. Then just like a light, it dawned to me that I should be happy. Not because of what happened to him, but I should still be thankful that there are far more worse problems that other people are facing. My problem is only about money, and I can earn that if not now, sometime soon. His problems is far more worse than mine. I feel for him, I really wish he can get over with happend, that sooner or later he can move one with life. He still goes to work, which is good, but I find him looking into air most of the time. He is still in shock. I have so mcuh respect for him, because he really works hard for his family. He works and often times volunteer to work during over time, HE practically works 8am-9pm everyday from Monday to Sunday. I ask him and the others if he can still take it, if he still has the energy to work over time. He always answer me. "Yes ma'am, para sa pamilya ko!" then this is what he will get.

You can say that I am a bit affected, because I have high respect for him as a father, that even if he is just a construction worker he has the sense of responsiblity and overflowing love for his family, specially for his daughter. Sometimes I wish that little J's father would have just a bit of that, I dont even ask for him(little J's father) to be responisble to provide. I already told him that I dont need a single cent from him, what I am only asking from little J's father is just a bit of concern. Maybe just a hint to let us know that he cares for his daughter.

Kids Say the Darnest Thing #12

I know I havent posted much on this site since I've been very busy, but I can't let thing pass. I might forget it and I dont want that.

Last night, while little J and Mama is playing the yaya came and ask what to cook for breakfast and little J's baon. So we asked little J.

Mommy: What do you want for baon?
after a long pause she said...
Little J:mmmmmm, nothing! baka may birthday ulet bukas eh.
we all laughed.

Since yesterday, there was a birthday celebration in school, she didn't eat her baon, instead she ate the food prepared for the celebration and for today she is still expecting that there is another birthday party so she will again eat, Mcdo or Jollibee food. In fact she even ask when will be the next party, because a classmate gave her another invitation whic is scheduled on Friday, unfortunately she doesn't go to school on fridays. So she will be missing that one.

A Tribute to Micheal Jackson

micheal jackson Pictures, Images and Photos

We all feel saddend about the death of one if not the greatest entertainer of all time Micheal Jackson. I know this post is a bit too late and I am not trying to get hits for this blog. I felt the need to write this because Micheal Jackson is part of little J's childhood. Yes, you heard me right, little J who is only 2 years old then is a fan of MJ. That alone is amazing.

I was just a baby being born in 1981, at the height of his career, alhtough I am not a fanatic but I enjoyed his music. We all grew up listing to his voice, we all are in awe in every hit that he makes. For me he was just a man with great talent yet still human to still feel insicure about his looks. He is an icon, but we all realized because of his death that he is afterall just like all of us.

I'll share to you why little J at 2 years old then became a fan. She never knew about Micheal Jackson, his fame his songs. She was 2 and she was not aware of who he is. Micheal Jackson was not being talked about then, so she would know. How did little J came to know about him? My father bought a concert compitilation DVD, with a lot of artist, Josh Groban, Micheal Bubble, Akon, Celine Dion and about 2 other artist are included in the Dvd, including Micheal Jackson's concert. I thought she will be drawn to Micheal Bubble since she likes his songs and hears it a lot at that time but when she saw Micheal Jackson she was in awe on how the people treat him. We were watching it in the car and she cant belive how Micheal Jackson did the moon walk, or the anti grawity bent. She was seeing his moves the first time in her life and she was amazed about his talent. She cant understand why people are screaming, crying and even fainting only by watching him perform. She liked Micheal Jackson so much that even if she is already too sleepy she asked me to bring the DVD upstairs so that she can watch it before sleeping. Can you imagine Micheal Jackson singing her lullaby? Well she did, and she played it almost non-stop for 2 or 3 weeks. In that sense alone, we can all say that Micheal Jackson music touched the heart of all of us even for a 2 year old girl who lived some 20 years after his stardom.

I just hope that his music and his message will never fade. I wish that he will continue to touch the hearts of generations after generetions even after his death, To Micheal Jackson, even though I never knew you the way that most of your fans did, heck I am not even a fan, but you touched my heart by touching my daughters heart. I salute you for your music and for trying to make this world a better place. Btw, little J's fave is "Heal the world" she can sing the whole song with the right lyrics.

Father's day

I think this day will always be a sad day for me, it has always been since I had little J. If you are new to my blog then you wouldn't know that I am a single mom and my life has never been the same sice then. My life has never been the same in so many ways, I have little J now to make me smile, but I also remember the love that I've lost because of some selfish reasons that I still cannot understand. Since that time too, my father and me broke our relationship. I cannot even remember how or when, but I think it all started when my father broke my heart because of some immature thing a week before I gave birth. We are not always like this, I remember that I am closer to father when I was younger, hence the term "papa's girl", but when I grew up, we also grew apart and now we are even more farther from eachother than ever. We had a lot of issues, maybe we just cannot forgive eachother. He hated me for some things that I have than and I hated him for his. Before I tried to mend it, but now, I think we are farther apart that I actually feel more secure, safe and peaceful when we dont talk. It is like I wouldn't care much. I honestly feel alot better like this, I know it shouldn't be that way but that is how I feel. I feel sad about it all, especially for little J, but I have gotten use to this set up already. I hope there will come a time that we can mend eachother's broken hearts and learn to forgive and understand each other.

Now, you know why Father's day is one of the loneliest days for me. Let's not even talk about little J's father, because if I do think about him I will still cry. I hope little J doesn't feel the same about father's day. I don't know which one is better, me having my father around, but doesn't feel good about it or little J not having her father with her but doesn't worry about it.

Wii fit for me

I bought the wii package that I posted a few days ago, so far I am loving it. I think this will really help stay focus on losing weight. I have tried countless times but non work, this time I a actually believe that it will work. I love working out now that it is a game. Even if it is a game I can really feel the burn. I have been using it for 4 days now and so far I lost some pounds and got it back yesterday after binging out on doughnut. I never thought that it would matter in just a day and it does. The wii fit really makes me see that I have to exercise and diet at the same time. What I love most about wii is that I can enjoy it with the whole family even little J has her own exercise routine. I started out with a wii age of 52, then 28, then 33, now I am very proud to say that my wii age yesterday was 25. It is like the multiplayer games, which is as fun as the wii.

Web hosting Geeks

have you heard of this website, web hosting geeks? Yes they are about web site hosting, but they are more to just hosting. On this website, they make it a point for layman just like me and any other ordinary blogger to understand how it works. I and like million other bloggers doesn't know anyhting about web hosting. IN this website, they compare all the sites or at least the top ten site that offer website hosting. You can see their positive and negative points. The site tries to explain as clear as possible the benefite of each service, they also differentiate the packages from each other. It has been and still is a challenge to me to learn all those geeky stuff about, web hosting and web in general. For me all I know is to write blogs, that later did I know that I have to learn a lot of other stuff. I didn't know about domain, pageranks, comments and even on how to check how many visits does your site gets everyday. At first I wouldn't care much but I learn to understand or at least try to understand what are these all about. I still need a lot of help and I get all the help by browsing more on the net and asking alot of bloggers. I am lucky to find a lot of blogger friends who actually gives honest and answers to my stupid questions. To all of you I am very thankful.

Little J's 4th birthday (part 3)Kiddo Academy

I originally planned for 1 party at Kiddo, both for her classmates and her cousins, but since both group might not be available on the same date I opted to have separate parties. The first party was held last June 5, with her cousins, then a celebration with the immediate family on the 7th (her actual birthday), lastly a Mcdo Party at school with her classmates.

Little J's 4th birthday (part 2)Fun Ranch

We had a simple lunch at Teriyaki Boy, Fun Ranch for the family. Just us, we'll I could say that I felt uncomfortable with the whole family. You see we are not in good terms, but for little J's sake all of us are there. I am not comfortable not because I have ill feelings towards them, in fact I don't have any issues against any of them. It is a long stroy, but to chorten it, My mom and dad are not in good terms because of some petty things, then my brother also had a fight with my mom. I ahve nothing to do with any of it but they( my bro and dad) felt they also have to fight with, didn't say anything, just kept quiet about it. Well if they dont want to talk to me, fine by me. We've always been like this for years, and I mean years almost all my life. So I am so used to it. That is why I feel uncomfortable being with the whole family.

To go on with little J's birthday, we had lunch and they brought cake and gifs. Little J was so surprised to see Papa. We invited him to join us but he refused and he chose to make a grand entrance on surprising little J. After lunch we let little J ride everything. I bought the ride all you can and we took turns on riding with her. She had a grand time. That is all that matters.

After fun ranch we went to Christ the Kinf Church to hear mass, then off we go to Eastwood mall Toy town to buy gifts for little J. I gave her a budget of Php600 and she got great finds. She chose 2 sets of kitchen toys, 4 apliance in all. The first box of coffee maker and juicer cost Php250, then the other box of mixer and blender cost another Php300, she got 4 new toys under the budget. She has money left to buy batteries for all of it. We had it gift wrapped and she had fun opening it at home as if she doesnt know what is inside.

We just came from a birthday party of my cousin in Batangas. He got a good offer to head a Hospital in Sto. Tomas. Part of the package is a hefty amount for salary and a new home. They have instant home in Batangas, a huge house something that most of us dream of. The furnitures are also included, I think money is not an issue when the original owner constructed and fitted out the spaces. They most have rustic furniture, fitting for a rest house. The architecture is a hidgepodge of modern, rustic or what we call eclectic. Not exactly what I prefer so I just kept my mouth shut. The house is beautiful, but I really don't like mouldings and cornice. That is the only thing I dont like.

Random pics

Some random pics that I uploaded from the cellphone...


I am looking for an investment, that is why I am reading a lot about InvestmentForge something that I can put my money where I can earn a decent amount. I am looking for something that will be easy to maintain, something that doesn't require too much of my time. There are a lot of options that I am studying but I havent decided on anything yet.

Should I buy a Wii?

I am planning to buy this Wii package includes everything already. I really wanted to enroll back in a gym but I dont think I can keep up wih the schedule. I am looking after little J now 24hrs, I don't have a yaya and I have so much work to do. So I figured if I'll just buy a Wii and Wii fit I can exercise at home with little J. Both of us will enjoy it. I am buying this for 20k, do you think its worth it? If I enroll back in Golds Gym I will have to shell out about the same amount. This will be a combined gift for me and little J. What do you think? Should I buy it?

Real Property Management

Real Property Management is another choice for architects like me. We have a wide range of career choice, most commen is the design, but most Architect's are not gifted or at least not patient enough to pull off this side of our career. Another choice is construction, an architect can either be a designer or the next best option is to be a contractor. If you will ask me, this is the most practical area, the most lucrative too. If you have the exprience to handle construction, deal with the workers and have the patience for the grueling value engineering task an architect may emerge victorius doing this. Then there is the Porject Management, I would say this is the most prestigious career, if you wan to be called boss and feels like it, then this is the option for you. In project management it is a mixture of administration and management, expertise on the technical stuff is not that necessary, you can just ask your staff about it, if you are not sure. I tried all, I've been in design, project management and contruction. If you are doing freelance, just like me you need all three. I hope I have the courage, know-how and patience to do this, so far I think I'm doing well. I am still keeping my fingers crossed. Type your summary here

Little J's 4th birthday (part 1)

As "Chef Sheffy Celebration", a cooking inspired celebration with the rest of the Espino cousins. They baked cupcakes and made pizza's. I noticed that most of the kids even the parents was surprised on how our party was set-up. They expected the usual, greeting of happy birthday and eating only. The typical Filipino celebrations, they are surprised that the kids really has activity. They are so pleased and happy about it, the kids enjoyed cooking and the parents enjoyed it too. Even the adults enjoyed playing "chef". So here are some pictures I'd like to share with you!

Smells Good

I don't usually Talk Perfume, to be honest I don't use much of it. I use cologne but I very seldom use it too. As I have expressed to all of you, I am not the vain type. I worry about everything else except taking care of myself. I want to change that, I am vouch to myself that I will take care of myself more, at least make myself feel better. Little by little I spend a little to pamper myself. I started with foot spa and nail care, then I bought cosmetics. I just, plunge into it, I bought foundation, blush, eyeshadow, lip gloss and recently ordered the 7pc brush set, all from Ellana Minerals. I am loving it, it is so easy to apply and it really makes me look good.

J and J Adventure Girls Day!

This day we had a very long and tiring day. J & J adventure is sort of an extended family affair. We went to a baptism today, my cousins's son. Just the girls, my mom, my sil, little J and me. The event eneded at 1pm, so we have the car and we decided to take it for a ride and of course, the more the marrier. We asked my Aunt's to join i with fun. Mama Tess, Mama Gina and Tita Aira. My Aunt's and my 5 year old cousin. So off we went, from Q.C. we went all the way to Fort High Streets, Tita Tess hasn't been there. First stop Contis, eventhough we just came form a feast from the baptism, we just cannot pass on the opportunity that there is no line in front of Contis. So we grab the opportunity to snak on Mango Bravo.

Aira wants to go to rides, bump cars specifically, but of course there is no ride there. So I thought of bringing them to a kids haven. A store full of toys at very affordable prices. I discovered this store a few months ago, when I was supervising some construction work on Krispy Kreme Fort. Its a store full of toys the sme as in Divisoria at same prices, the difference is that there is no dirty muddy streets, no ocean of people around, and aircon. It is called Edengs Toys, so if you are on the look out for very affordable toys or some loots for an upcoming birthday and wants to stay away from the hassle of smelly, dirty Divisoria this is the place to go. A whole bunch of loots already in a set cost onlky Php35 this set already includes a coloring book, pencil, a box of crayon, sharpener and cute eraser.

I bought little J a bunch of clay, a noisy phone toy, pack of 6 of towels at 75 only. Some bubble toys at 10 each, and a set of cute little furnitures for Aira. All in just 200. Cool huh? After that we went to Fort High Streets and off to Kirspy Kreme. WHat do you know! the holight is on. Does all of you know that if the Red Light is on that means you can get FREE newly cooked, original glazed doughnut, the only thing to do is just fall in line. We all got one each, and little J and Aira, much on it in just a few seconds. Another thing all moms should know about Krispy Kreme is that you can have your kids make their own doughnut. It is a lot of fun and they feel so proud of themselves for making one. All stores offer this, you just have to ask!. So the crew asked the manager and the 4 of us, little J, Aira, Tita Gina and me got us a Krispy Kreme paper hat and we are led to the doughnut factory. Little J and Aira got a doughnut each and the crew taught them on how to make a doughnut! They both wore gloves and got one doughtnut each then they dipped the doughnut into the chocolate glaze and put some sprinkles. After that they are so proud of what they have done. If you can only see how their eyes sparkle, again the 2 doughnuts they made are FREE. So that mean we got 5 origianl glazed doughnut free, and additional 2 choco sprinkled doughnuts free. So let your kids experience this and have whole lot of fun and lot of sweet delights to share.

Then we took a ride in the tricyle, its nice all 7 of us fits in it too. Again this is FREE, you may just want to give a tip to the driver. The kids enjoyed it a lot, we just went around highstreets, back to the parking lot. So this is the end of a long tiring but nevertheless FUN Jand J Adventures.

Aggregator here I come!!

Have you heard of Aggregator? It is the new thing in blogging, I have read a lot of blog aggregators by If only I had more time for blogging I should have known this for quite sometime. This new thing on the net is very interesting. More and more bloggers are joininng in. I joined already and I am having fun getting to know more about it.

I really wish I have more time to blog again. I miss blogging, I miss my blogger friends, heck I even miss plurk. But I also love what I do, I love my profession, I love being an architect. I love that I can still find people who actually respect architects, what we do, what we are trying to share to them. I am happy to meet such wonderful clients, they are so nice and they even pay almost immediately, that is maybe so because I charge really low. I am not complaining about my really low charge, I am just happy to practice my profession again.
