Busy but Enjoyable Family Day Out!

Talking about Monday, for me it is always my busy day even though I am just a stay at home Mom. Yesterday, we went to our dentist appointment; Jacob did fine with his check up. The dentist found few cavities and need some cleaning to make sure that his teeth need serious procedure or not. He was by himself with the dentist and we are so proud of him for that. Normally, he would freak out and cry like you are doing something bad on him or hurting him. But yesterday, he was very cooperative. I am hoping he will do just fine for his cleaning next week! After that, we went grocery shopping at Walmart.

In the morning, we went to the bank and deposited the check my in-laws gave to us as our gifts for Christmas, then afterwords, headed to the Mall and returned the gloves my hubby gave me, then I got the chance to shop at Old Navy and bought myself a blouse and camisole that goes with it. Ate lunch at fast food, then play games at the video arcade. Oh, man that was a long day, but I have no regret for we all have fun doing things together as family, plus were able to catch three opps despite of that before the end of the day.

A Candy that Fights Bacteria!

After reading this article, you will never look at candy canes again the way you used to . The flavors and ingredients of this candy is the secret of it. What do you think? Read and find out more benefits of eating to our health.

New studies on peppermint, the key flavoring in traditional candy canes, reveal the herb may do everything from kill germs to treat digestive troubles.Some researchers now advise consumers to eat a tablespoon or more of fresh peppermint, and other green herbs, daily.

Peppermint oil, found in most candy canes, also appears to have health benefits. A recent British Medical Journal study, led by McMaster University researcher Alex Ford, concludes that peppermint oil should be the first line of defense against irritable bowel syndrome, a condition characterized by abdominal pain and irregular bowels that affects between 5 to 20 percent of the population.Peppermint oil, and other potent essential oils, may even one day be wafted in their vapor form over food to prevent the growth of bacteria.

Salted Eggs and Tomato Salad

This salad is very simple and easy to make. Salted eggs and tomato salad is the traditional accompaniment for Tinapa (Smoked Fish), a perfect match for grilled pork or any fried or grilled fish.This is one of the foods I miss so much from the Philippines. I love it; still eat it every once in a while even though this is salty. And salty foods are not good for me healthwise.

How times fly so fast....

Here are four nieces of mine: Karla, Maureen, Camille and Arabelle (starts from the right)....
with my brother, Danny, mother and Maureen..
mother with Karla and Maureen...
with my mother and borther is Ara....
and here is the second to the youngest and third Camille and youngest, Ara! They were all chilling after the big Noche Buena!

Last night I got the chance of talking with my family again in the Philippines. Happy to see my mother feeling better and as usual she became emotional and cried. That is one reason I don't call often as much as I should because it is breaking my heart to see her on the webcam drying! I also saw some pictures of them taken at Christmastime this year. They also want to see Jacob, but Jacob was already sleeping for it was already 2:00 in the morning. I can not believe how fast they are growing up! I already have three nieces who are teenangers and two are already in college. Anyway, I have posted some of the pictures of them here.

Two in One Toaster!

You know those mornings when every second counts? This great gadget ensures that breakfast doesn’t get kicked to the curb! By the time your coffee is brewed, your poached eggs, wheat toast, and turkey bacon are ready to go!I would like to have one of this someday; maybe a birthday gift from hubby this coming March :-)

It's been a long day for us!

It has been a long day for me today and I think I need to rest now before I get sick from staying so much on the internet blogging, talking to my family in the Philippines and completing oppos. I am glad despite of being busy, I still manage to do my duty as a wife and mother. I have been blessed with such a wonderful husband who has been supportive understanding when it comes to my blogging. My son is also very cooperative, patient and such a good boy who entertain himself while I am busy.

My Multicolor Christmas Tree

You are Multicolored Lights

Your holidays are a time for cheer and excitement.

You love so much about the holidays, and everyone perks up a little from your happiness.

You try to be grateful for what you have this time of the year.

Even if things have been tough, you can't help but be joyful.

What Color Christmas Lights Are You?

This is so true. No matter how much I tried white lights on my Christmas tree, I always eneded up putting multicolor one. I also love red, green and blue when it comes to decorations. I hope someday to put white lights and white Christmas decors on Christmas Day!

Loving my Red Van :-)

This is the van I drive now. We still haven't fix the one that our neighbor had chipped because we need to wait till the weather is warm for the paint to drive properly. I love driving this car better than the Honda Element my hubby is driving to work. Three weeks ago, I drove the Element and it almost got us in to wreck. From then on, I told my husband I will not drive the Element again. This van is made by Chrysler and is very easy for me to drive. It has a DVD player and lots of features we needed when we are driving a long way. And Jacob is very comfy when he falls asleep.

Excited for the Holiday!

Last night I talked to my family in the Philippines and was happy to know that everyone is doing fine. They are all excited for Christmas. I told them that the Balikbayan Box will be coming but it would be late. They said it ok. They were excited for the package, too! Anyway, as soon as my mother got the money I send few minutes ago via internet, she started shopping for gifts and items for her little retail store that stands in front of their house. I am glad they are all happy. About us, we are about to spend our Christmas in my husnabd' brother in Durham. We both doesnt' want to, but they are very persistent. We just want to keep our tradition of staying home for a holiday. But oh well, this will probably happen once, so we decided to go and and leave the next day for our own Christmas celebration. Have a Wonderful Christmas Everyone! And A Blessed New Year to All!

Christmas Lantern

Parol (Christmas Lantern) is a traditional Filipino Christmas decoration, a five point star-shaped Christmas lantern. Originally made of thin bamboo frames and covered with colored cellophane or with rice paper also known as Japanese paper or papel de Japon. It has two tails that serve as the rays of the star .Parol reminds the Filipino Christians of the star of Bethlehem that guided the "Three Wise Men" on their way in search of Baby Jesus.

I really miss Christmas celebration in the Philippines and seeing decors everywhere. I remember when I was in grade school, we used to make our own Parol (Christmas Lantern) and then carry it with us during the parade on Christmas Party at school. And really enjoyed doing it every time.

Christmas Party @ Matt's Boss House

Last week we attended a Christmas Party at Hubby's Boss House. We all have fun in there, there were lots of food and and hubby's co-wokers and their families. Anyway, I took picture of Jacob and McKayla.
here they are...McKayla is only two year old who attends Pre-school and is a very smart little girl...

it was funny because Jacob calls her baby... as if he was old already!
They both loved the Santa Claus decoration which by the way sings and dances...pretty cool huh!

Ever Wonder Why The Holidays Are Perfect for Job Hunting?

It's easy to get caught up in holiday fever this time of year, concentrating on family, travel plans, holiday decor, and all the traditional festivities. But for those in the know, there's another form of "magic" in the air this season--because the holidays are PERFECT for job hunting. Don't believe anyone who tells you to just lie low until January, and that employers don't hire right now.
I am glad that my husband is finding a job now than waiting till his work is over in February. He was lucky enough and has gotten few job interviews. We are praying that he will be lucky and get a job before the end of the year. I hope that this article below that I got from the internet will work with us.

Each year, there are plenty of reasons that the holidays are the best time for a job search, including these 3 advantages:

1.) There's a TON less competitionfor jobs--even this year.
Don't tell your peers, but the law of probability is at work during the holiday season. With less applicants in circulation, you'll gain a much stronger reception from employers.
2.) Ample networking opportunities are everywhere.
Your next job lead could come from the literally dozens of people you can meet--some of them key decision-makers, or those with access to them--at holiday events.
3.) End-of-year budgets and hiring needs are all working in your favor.
While the myths abound as to how employers don't hire during the holiday season, many still have business needs (some even more so) during the last 2 months of the year.

Continue to market your skills and network with the end goal in mind, and you could find yourself ringing in the New Year while starting a new job.

Foods I missed most on Christmastime

I am pretty sure that Bibingka and Puto Bungbong are your favorites, too! I tell you now, am drooling with these foods. These reminds me of Christmas in the Philippines which I really miss so much! I still remember when I was young, my brother and used to attend midnight mass and after the mass we would buy these two and eat them in front of the bonfire with hot milk.
Don't you guys miss these foods, too? I bet you do! In case some of you are wondering, I am talking to my fellow my fellow Filipinos here :-)

Christmas Cards

I can not believe it! Chistmas is few weeks away and here am I still haven't started sending cards for my relatives, friends and family back to the Philippines. Well, can't blame myself, I have been busy with lot of things that I keep forgetting it. I better do it today before it's too late. I might mail the ones for my family through an express mail so they will get there on time. The BalikBayan box will get there a month later. I was just wondering, am I the only one late or what?

True Love.....

MySpace Graphics

Sometimes we think that we already knew what love is...but as soon as we became a mother, that's when we realized that we still don't know a lot of things about true love. I experienced it myself and sure all mothers and fathers did too! When Jacob was born, I learned that I have so much love to give than I ever thought. It is weird but I feel much love with my son now than my husband. He is constantly on my mind everyday. When he is sick or hurt, I always say that if I can only take the pain out of him, then I will do it. I would rather take the pain he feels and suffer myself than seeing him suffers. Being a mother I always think of my son and his needs even his future. Whatever I do, I do it for him. True love is sacrifice, constantly thinking of him/her, patience, long suffering, kind, humility, forgiveness and more....and that is what parents feel for their children/child.

My Blog was cut off from PPP Marketplace

When I logged in to my PPP account this morning, I saw a red x on this blog and I thought I just need to instal the code again as what I used to do before and it was fine after that. But just now when I was checking my email, I saw one email from PPP teling me that my blog "does not meet our standards for overall quality and will no longer be able to be used for accepting marketplace opportunities. Payments currently pending will still be made to your supplied PayPal address." I didn't know what to think and say. I felt sad. I think that's ok now since I didn't do much in there lately. I hope they will review it again someday and hoping they will put back my blog into market place. I am sad still :-( and feel like doing nothing with my blogs today :-(

Family Night Food

Broiled Lemon and Garlic Tiger Prawns

1 1/2 pounds tiger prawns, peeled and deveined
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven on broiler setting.
With a sharp knife, remove tails from prawns, and butterfly them from the underside.
Arrange prawns on broiler pan.
In a small saucepan, melt butter with garlic and lemon juice.
Pour 1/4 cup butter mixture in a small bowl, and brush onto prawns.
Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over shrimp.
Place broiler pan on top rack, and broil prawns for 4 to 5 minutes, or until done.
Serve with remaining butter mixture for dipping.

I love this idea of having this food during family movie night especially shrimp. Who would have thought of serving it while the family watches movie together. I will definitely try this one. This is a family favorite for home movie night; it's quick and easy and kids like the 'finger food' style.

Jake' s Bath Tub!

When Jacob was still a baby, we used to give him a bath in the sink. And these are few of his pictures taken while taking a bath.

I love my ducky buddy, Mommy...see!
Hmmm, this is a yummy ducky, don't you think, Mommy?

Now, he uses the bath tub and he calls it "my little swimming pool" :-)

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time to reflect on people and events you are grateful for, but this year, with so much bad news about home mortgages, increased heating prices, and the reality of job cuts, it may seem hard to find reasons to be thankful. Surprisingly, that's exactly why you should be thankful, psychologists say.

Biggest Holiday Allergy Triggers

1. Christmas trees and decorations. Allergies to evergreens are usually caused by high levels of mold spores, grass, ragweed, and pine pollen—all of which can trigger severe symptoms including asthma attacks.
2. Poinsettias. This traditional Christmas plant produces a milky sap that may cause contact dermatitis or skin irritation in some people.

3. Scented candles. As irresistible as the fragrances of gingerbread cookies or candied apples can be, they may come at a steep price to allergy sufferers.

4. Alcohol. The celebratory feeling of the season may put you in the mood to kick back a few, but the result could be an allergic reaction (not to mention a nasty hangover.)

5. Firewood. There's nothing more picturesque than cozying up in front of a wood-burning fireplace with the snow falling gently outside.

My son and husband have both sensitive noses; and they both have allergies through the year especially during winter time. With these things in mind, I try to be careful putting holiday decorations in to my home at this time of the year.

Variety is the spice in Malay Foods

Before I came here to U.S., I was living in Malaysia with my Aunt and her family. Her husband is a British National and is an Expat. These people likes foods and eating out; and while there I get to taste different culinary. I came to like Malay Foods for they are spicy and yet very delicious. These are the foods I miss most which I couln't find anywhere here.

The traditional culinary style has been greatly influenced by the long-ago traders from neighboring countries, such as Indonesia, India, the Middle East, and China.Malay food is often described as spicy and flavorful as it utilizes a melting pot of spices and herbs.

Nasi Lemak - a rice cooked with coconut milk and served with anchovies, nuts, cucumbers, a chili paste known as sambal and a choice of curries.

Kangkung belacan' is kangkung wok-fried in a pungent sauce of shrimp paste (belacan) and hot chilli peppers. Various other items are cooked this way, including petai (which is quite bitter when eaten raw; some older generation Malays still eat it as is) and yardlong beans.

Ketupat and rendang is the most delicious cuisine which is served normally on Hari Raya festival.

Rice is the staple diet in any Malay meal. It is often served for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and supper too. Most meals are eaten by using your fingers, and eating utensils are kept to a minimum. All dishes are served at the same time, accompanied by a refreshing drink. Fish is popular in Malay cooking, as with other seafood such as shrimps and cuttlefish. Beef and mutton are very popular choices but never pork as it is against their religious beliefs to eat pork. The other popular white meat is chicken.

Flat Belly Diet

Everywhere I go people talks about this diet called Flat Belly Diet. It is so popular that even on the newspaper and internet you can read how effective it is in losing those stubborn belly fats if followed strictly by people including me. Yup, I have fats on my belly and got it after I gave birth to my son. I did the best I could to take it off of my body but nothing works; I did diet, exercise, planned meal but they were just a waste of money. The deal is that it is done by eating eating mono-unsaturated fats at every meal. People who have tried it actually lose their belly fats for up to 15 pounds in just 32 days!

Right now, Prevention Magazine is recruiting people who are willing to try
Flat Belly Diet free of charge, and blog about their experiences on their website. Once accepted, participants will be given a free I year subscription to the website, a membership of exclusive Success Story Club and a free Fat Belly Diet book. The great thing about this diet is that unlike every diet plan, I don’t have to do lot of exercising which I hate doing and I can eat whatever I want without worrying that I might gain the belly fats back. By following this diet, I will not only lose those stubborn belly fats but also it is good for the heart, too!

According to research/study, mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) can fight the effects of bad saturated fats, that can help in losing weight. MUFAs are believed to target the belly fats. Finally, I have found the diet that is perfect for me. You think this diet is for you? Then, visit their website to learn more about Fat Belly Diet and get yourself some delicious goodies on top of getting your flat belly back the way it was before. Don’t wait long, act now!

Parents and Teacher Conference

Lately I have been busy spending time with my family, which is why I haven’t visited my friends and their blogs. I only have little time with my blogs when my husband is home; because I always make sure they are on the top of my priority lists. I know you guys understand that. I am still doing my best to visit as much as I could. Today was another busy day for us. Hubby and I attended the Parents and teachers Conference in the afternoon after my son's school; then as a treat for Jacob for doing a good job at school, we went to Chucky Cheese's and we all enjoyed it especially my son.

Scrabble, My Favorite Board Game

You Are Scrabble

You are incredibly clever and witty. You can talk your way out of (and into) situations easily.
You are an excellent decision maker. You are good at weighing the options in front of you.
You're the type of person who can make something out of nothing. You are very resourceful.
You know a lot of things. Most importantly, you know when people are wrong - even when they won't admit it.

This is so true! I love playing scrabble and will never get tired of it. I remember when I was still in Malaysia living with my Aunt; every Sunday, my friends and I go to Filipino Community and play scrabble with fellow Filipinas who love scrabble like me. Then, one day they organized a tournament and proudly said that I won the third place! Every once in a while my hubby and I play and almost all the time I win the game and now, he was challenged and he gets very serious because he wants to beat me; and he succeed!

Things I am thankful for...

There are lot of things I am thankful for this year and that includes good health (kidneys are doing well), new job for hubby ('though it'll only last till Feb. of 2009), my mother recovering well (after stroke), father and siblings (who take care of mother), in-laws (who are supportive as always), Jacob's school and teachers, church leaders and members who are there when we need help, friends online who have touched my heart in many ways, new found hobby (blogging) , new prophet of LDS church and challeges in life that made us stronger than ever and of course a hubby who is my bestfriend, supporter, lover and devoted husband and a doting father to our son, Jake.

Finding the reason of our existence...

Everyone here on earth came here for a reason and it is up to us to find out what it is. As we find those reasons, we sometimes tend to get discourage or disappointed. That is part of the process and if we let ourselves down, it's like we disappoint heavenly Father. We just need to remember that trials in life are part of finding who we are and the purposes of our existence here on earth; let us not lose hope. Burdens in our life can be carried easy if we will always bear in our mind and heart that God is helping us carry those burdens. God loves us and He is watching over us; He knows us and our needs and knows us more than we know ourselves. He is there to lift us up and help us to get up every time we fall.

Journal Entry....

Another one of my journal entry in November of 2006 ; I justwant to paste it here to remind me of how we made that day a productive one even though we didn't get enough sleep that night.
We walk up early today because of Jacob’s habit of waking up in the middle of the night or very early morning going to our bedroom and sleeping with us. I get up and ready myself for my doctor’s appointment. I got there before nine, have my urine collected and blood drawn. At 10:30 am Sandy finally called me to get ready for Doctor’s check up. Dr. Lerman said that everything is ok. And that was 10:45 am. I finally got out of the clinic at exactly 11am. He scheduled me for glofil and 24 hour urine collection next month. Have Taiwan foods for lunch, which was so good. After, lunch, Matt took a nap and as soon as he woke up from nap, we went to Costco to buy diapers and wipes for Jacob. We ate our dinner there with pizza and hotdogs.

My Two priceless possesions....

I love these pictures of Jacob and Daddy together; they looked so adorable. I still smile everytime I look at them. These are treasure I can not afford to lose and also something Jacob will remember when he grows up. It's funny because every time I show them to him he always says; "that's baby Jacob, Mommy." instead of "that was me."

Journal Entry on Halloween Day 2006

I decided to paste this journal entry I wrote on my personal journal exactly 2 years ago. It is fun reminiscing the past; and the following years after that.

October 31, 2006

Busy again with the kitchen, hopefully we would be able to finish it this week. I have had a bad day today, and this is one of those days where my mood swing attacks me. I take it out on Matt and feel so bad for that. I am glad that he is so patient with me and my being mean on those days. We still manage to work things out. Sometimes I just don’t want to talk, but be quiet. The kitchen is not even half way done. We ate junk foods today, burgers from Wendy’s which I called junk foods. Dinner, nothing much but went trick or treating. Jacob has so much fun trick or treating tonight, ‘though it is very chilly outside. Tomorrow, we need to go to Sandy Mc Curly’s retirement party at TI campus. She has worked there for 38 years. I have been eating a lot but no exercise at all. I was just lazy walking on the treadmill, and I’d rather walk outside. Since the weather is getting cold I have no choice but to try walking on the treadmill starting tomorrow.

Shirmps, our family's favorites.....

My family and I love eating and cooking; that is why I cook a lot of variety of foods in our kitchen. One of our favorites is shrimp. I came in a country with lots of different sea foods, fresh and inexpensive. I learned to cook by watching my mother cooks sea foods in a lot of ways. I love shrimp because it is very easy to cook; in just a matter of minutes you have it, ready to be eaten. I cook it the easiest way I know; after cleaning (removing the skin, deveining and rinsing)., just drop it on a hot wok with a very little vegetables oil or butter and minced garlic, I stir it a little bit, then seasoned it with salt and pepper, cover and let it steam for a minute or two then here you have a very delicious shrimp and top it with chopped parsley. Another way to cook it is to grill it. First of course you have to clean it, dried it with paper towel, then seasoned it with salt and pepper and brush it with a little oil with minced garlic, put it on skewers and then grill it for minutes or till the color turns pink. I am glad my son eats seafood also and my brother in law and his wife was very surprised! Why? Because their son doesn't want to eat fish, all he eats are chicken nuggets. He eats veggies, but still the one the baby eats which is the pureed ones that you can find on the baby section of the grocery store. I wished he would eat variety of foods. I think it boils out to one thing; whatever you serve on the table, is the only food your child will learn to eat.

Patiently and quietly he waited....

It was funny because my son woke up early today and then he started waking me up, too! He said "Mommy it's time to wake up! It's not dark anymore and we got to go." I told him I was still sleepy, come on let us sleep more." He reply and said," no Mommy we can't go back to sleep." Finally he gave up and I fell asleep again; after an hour or more, I woke up and found him next to me, all dressed up and was playing. I told him, “go down stairs and I'll be right there." He went down and turned the TV. on. I made him a breakfast and was very please with that. I always wake him up every morning during school days, but today, he woke me up! He was so patient at his very young again and I am proud of that. He waited for me patiently and quietly. I wished I can be patient as he is.

What motivates and inspires me.....?

These are few of quotations from the leader of our church (Latter Days Saints). I like them becuase they always inspire me to be better person, wife, mother and a citizen of the nation where I belong now.

"The more perfect one becomes, the less he is inclined to speak of the imperfections of others."
—ElRay L. ChristiansenCR, April 1956, p. 114.

"The Savior will let you feel the love He feels for those you serve. The call is an invitation to become like Him."
Elder Henry B. EyringEnsign, May 2000, 66

"The world is in need of your help. There are feet to steady, hands to grasp, minds to encourage, hearts to inspire, and souls to save. The blessings of eternity await you."
President Thomas S. MonsonEnsign, May 2001, 48

Funny looking couple...

As I was looking at the stocks of pictures we have on our computer today, I found this funny pictures of me and my hubby wearing the clown wig and the square eyeglasses. I can't help but smile. I showed it to my son and he was laughing at them.
The wig and eyelasses were my hubby's collections of funny accessories for Halloween costumes.

We kind of looking funny here, aren't we. Yup, got nothing to do today, but be lazy.

Another one of those lazy saturdays...

I have been lazy today; and still didn't do much except sit down and watch t.v. with my son. I have been busy updating my blogs especially the new one. I even apply it to have Entrecard so I can drop EC to gain friends and eventually learn from them and their life's experiences. Soon I need to stop and turn my computer off so I can start tidying up the living room where my son made a lot odf mess; and afterwards prepare our diner. I decided to make Sarsiado, Steamed Chinese brocoli with oyster sauce and brown fried rice. No idea what will be our dessert, maybe we'll just have fruits.

Don't follow what I did....

I love this purse and the matching wallet I bought at JC Penney last month when I got upset with my husband. I went to the mall to cool myself down and ended up shopping, and after that I felt much better and went home. Girls, I know what I did wasn't right, so please do not do it when you are upset or else hubby will going to get broke :-)

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

Jacob wore the same costume for three consecutive years now and still never get tired of it. Good thing I didn't let him wear his Batman costume or else him and Alex would have worn the same costume!

This was last night at church where primary children went trunk or treating after the games they participated with :-); with him was his friend, Alex.
This one was last years Halloween with our neighbor, Jackson back in Texas. As you can see, he is wearing a cowboy costume here also.
This is one more of his picture taken wearing his costume. He really adores this cowboy costume of him :-)

My Birth Month Mean...
