Some of the belief we have in the family

Aside from gathering 12 different kinds of round fruits and hanging of the kalamansi fruit with red ribbon at the front door. One of my grandmothers believed when she was still alive and has been a practice to my family is to put coins in your pocket or wear something that has circles in it at New Years Eve so you will have money all the time accordingly. And not only that, we try to make a lot of noise as much as we can to drive bad spirits away too and we don’t spend any money on New Year’s Day January 1. This are just some of the many belief we had in our family but I’m sorry to say that I don’t do most of this anymore, except for the part where you put coins in your pocket who knows right hehehehe?

Bargain hunting

Yesterday December 26 is the day after Christmas and we all know that it’s also one of the days to shop for good buys. So we started early at 9:30 a.m (is this early or what? For me it is) were on our way to Reno already. So our first stop was Kohl’s, because they’re giving an extra 10% off from your purchase because they’re having an early power hours or something and it’s only up to 1 pm. Well we are a big fan of kohl’s as some of you already knew plus the extra percent off so that’s definitely our first stop. Unfortunately the store is close due to power outage. So we go ahead and went to JC Penny, and all their Christmas stuff is 75% off already plus additional $10.00 off if you purchased $50.00 or more and %15 off for purchased of $75.00. That was pretty neat, so we save a lot yesterday and were good to go again for next Christmas. That was a money well spent yesterday.

Looking back

I was browsing on some of the photos that I took back home in the Philippines during our 6weeks vacation. There are thousands of them as a matter of fact and that doesn’t include videos by the way, because I brought two digital camera’s with me. I was just going to bring one which is the canon... but that camera has been with me for more than 2years now, I love that camera but the battery doesn’t work the way it used to and I’m just afraid I wont be able to take a lot of pictures especially during my sons Christening and birthday party. And I didn’t regret bringing two cameras even though my carryon bag that time was already very heavy. Anyway what are vacations for if you won’t have a lot of pictures right?

My son was afraid of Santa

I took a picture of my 15months old son who’s so afraid of Santa Clause when I brought him to where hubby work. He wasnt able to sit on Santa's Lap anymore for he started crying the moment he sees santa's face. Paul was even holding him already and sat beside santa but he woudn't look at santa's face. Silver Legacy Resort and Casino actually organized a Christmas party for their employee’s kids. Though my hubby didn’t have any clue about it that’s why he called me to the last minutes. Good thing at least its not snowing that time so I was able to drive us to where he worked. So hopefuly next year it will be a different story already, will see...

Thunder Valley Casino

Our stay in courtyard hotel in Roseville California was really nice, service was good and the accomodation was really great and part of the package that we got comes with a free breakfast so its really nice. And we all had a good night sleep last Friday for we are all tired from the travel and store hopping. Hubby found a good buy in the Performance Bicycle Store that time because they are having a sale. That Friday night we also went to Thunder Valley Casino, well not to gamble my dear readers but to check out the place. Its actually a pretty big casino and their hotel is still under construction. Their parking lot is huge, you have to take a bus to bring you to the casino floor. But we didn’t stay long for its getting late and were all tired from our travel.

Be aware on your surroundings

I have a friend who is now living in Florida, they’ve been there for a few months now and havent totally settled in yet. Well that’s because they have a 4years old son and a 1year old baby girl. Though they both like the area where they’re living in right now, sometimes she can’t help but wonder about the safety of her family. I totally understand where its coming from since I also have a 14months old son. Being in a new place can sometimes be harsh specially if you doesn’t really know who your neighbors are. Well I think as a friend, I can only listened to her that time and didn’t really know what to do and say to her. But now she can check out the Florida Inmate Locator, because there she can specifically search the city and county she's living in. After all its better to be safe and be aware of your surrounding than be sorry later on.

Overwhelmed by the beautiful tree

Oh my God, I can’t believe its only 17more days to go before that big day. We finally finished decorating our tree days ago and our little one seems very excited about it. Every time we are on the kitchen table and I’ll asked him where the tree is, he’ll always look towards the direction of the tree and point at it and say “tree”. And that is what’s always happening every time we go out and he sees a tree, hell point at it and utters the word “tree”. I supposed it fascinates him to see a Christmas tree with all those lights and colorful ornaments hanging on the tree and for him its just overwhelming. That is why its just amazing to see how much he had grown now. I’m sure this Christmas is going to be a great one for us especially with our little one around.

Its Like Going Back to Stone-Age

My week seems to be pretty interesting. I’ve been having a problem with my computer for quite a while now. Every time I turned on my computer, unwanted pop-ups are always popping out. Saying that my computer has been infected blah…blah…blah… I didn’t really pay attention to it for I thought it only wanted me to sign-up to that anti-virus program which I don’t need one anyway. So this has been going on for weeks now, until the other night it automatically shots-off and did its recovery thing, the next thing I knew was all my files, pictures and programs that has been installed for 3years now are all gone. For short I was like using a newly bought computer and installing it for the first time, so you could just imagine the few pre installed programs that where there. I was like going back to a stone-age era. 3years of my computer life was there and all of a sudden; nothing!!! The worst thing is that, I can’t sign in to social spark now and I don’t know what to do. Anybody can make a suggestion? I would really appreciate it.

I Was So Thrilled About It.

Well last Friday was my day, you know why? That’s because we went to Seafood City. I’ve heard a lot of things about seafood city, too bad we didn’t have it here in Reno. So since last Thursday was our anniversary and hubby had the Friday and Saturday off so we decided to go to Sacramento. But before we drive and head to the west, hubby quickly check the address of Thrift store located in Sacramento. While he was doing that, I asked him to check also if they have a Seafood City, and you bet they do. And with the help of our GPS, which we bought three months ago, we were able to go to places we want to in no sweat. But I was just so excited I found the "Seafood City" and its only 3hours away from us, not bad at all ha?

Our 4th year Wedding Anniversary

Yes it is, though it only seems yesterday when we both took our wedding vow. Wow time flies so fast. At noon today hubby called and asked me if I wanted to have dinner with him in Reno, so I said yes. But an hour later I changed my mind so I called him back. I thought it would be nice just to stay here in town for our dinner rather than driving 40miles back and forth. And besides were planning to go to Sacramento tomorrow so I wanted him to have a good night rest. And yes indeed, that was actually a good decision and good for me because I was able to ask the ladies at the Chinese Buffet if I can leave some Mary Kay Brochure with them and they said “yes” .

His First Day on Class Finally...

Got a lot of stuff done yesterday and I was so happy with that, but what really excites me the most was my sons first day in a class. He had fun yesterday at our local Library, but not because he had fun listening to the story but he was just so excited himself too to see a lot of kids around. He started going around and trying to talk to the kids which are way older than him. Other than that we also went outside to pick up some dry leaves for their art project. Where you have to put the leaf underneath the paper and start coloring the paper to reveal the roots of the leaves. So I think it’s a pretty cool place to be for your little ones. So till next time folks.

How To Learn To Viral Market

Before I couldn’t imagine how one person can do business online, not even in the world of blogging. When my friend introduced me to blogging, can’t really believed that she’s actually making money on it. And besides didn’t really believed her at first because I thought this is just some kind of scam because they are just lurking everywhere and if it is, I’m just scared for my friend. But I know she’s smart enough to know.
For quite sometime now, I have seen an exceptional development to some of the blogs that I’ve been visiting. Sometimes it’s hard to believe what really a computer can do this days. Besides there are several number of social networking sites that bloggers like us can connect to acquire exposure and ultimately get a wide circulation. Especially if you have a business or would want to have a business, you would like your business to be known publicly. Advertising on the internet is actually the fastest, easiest and most effective way to go nowadays.
But now, since I started my Mary Kay Business I’m very much interested to learn more about marketing. You know your “101 how to questions” kind of things. Good thing that Yovia together with the Marketing Sherpa is offering a free web conference on " How to Viral Market" which will include a step-by-step guide on how to produce, follow, execute and carry-out on a viral advertising campaign. They will also give 7 interactive tactics which can be purchase as a Toolkit, PDF will send one week prior to webinar risk free at a price of just $97. I think this is a great opportunity, so don’t forget its going to be on December 10, 2:00-3:30pm.

I'm Not Totally Settled in Yet

You may think that since its been a month now after our long PI vacation that we were finally able to settle in and really moving on. Yes and no is my answer, yes because at least out suitcases are back to where it should belong now and clothes were all back at the closet. Yes because our son is already sleeping at night though it’s a little bit late compared before. No, because I still have to make a copy of the pictures taken from PI and I still have to send some of the “padala” to my cousin in Canada and aunt in California. Hmmm, I wonder when will I be able to do that…

MUFA's For Flat Belly Diet

Have you already heard y what everybody is talking about? If not, let me tell me a little about it, its called the Flat Belly Diet . Sounds interesting? Well this diet program was specifically designed for those desperate people who have tried all methods of loosing weight. If diet pills, too much exercise and starving your self to death didn’t seem too worked, perhaps you can give this one a try. You see, not only that this Flat Belly Diet was designed for hopeless people, but it also offers a science base explanation that merge cutting-edge nutrition plan with professional tips and recommendation. This was discovered through the new research that says eating healthy fats or what they called the MUFAs (Monounsaturated Fatty Acids) at every meal targets purposely the belly fat—the most treacherous fat because of its connection with heart disease. Now, the good fat which you can find in almonds, peanut butter, olive oil and even chocolate are the type of heart healthy, disease fighting food. And which is also according to exciting new research can actually help those people lost weight specially around the middle.

I think this is actually good news, you don’t have to spend hours and hours on your exercise machine or take those pills that doest seem to work on you. Just eat the MUFA’s type of food and you’ll surely lose those unwanted weight don’t you think?

Mary Kay My New Baby

Well I have a new baby now guys, I am still starting with it but I’m in fact so excited at the same time. I love to do something and earn money on the side and still be able to watch my baby and be a mommy because that’s a priority. Anyway the baby that I was talking about is my new baby Mary Kay I love their skin products it’s the best. I also had the pleasure of sharing the product especially the Mary Kay and it is really a miracle because you can feel the result right away. I don’t have much beauty routine for my face before, but I realized that as we grow older, our skin needs a little bit of nurture. And im just happy I fount that through Mary Kay . Anyway checked my own website at Mary Kay and feel free to take a look around or send me an email if you have any inquiry. Thank you so much and enjoy

Shop Wiki

Few more days to go and its going to be Thanksgiving, wow I’m kind of excited already. Well you knew what usually happens after thanksgiving, people will be all in line outside their favorite store, waiting for them to open. And were not only talking to small group of people here, but I’m sure you knew what I mean. So if you have the adrenalin, stamina and the patience to do that I think you should be fine.

But if waiting for hours in line is not your ideal type of shopping for the holidays, you can also try the television, phone and most of all the least but not the last, the internet. Yep at the comfort of your home you can get gifts for your love ones without leaving the house. Especially if there’s 3feet of snow outside, well I wouldn’t blame you.

Anyway, one of the website you can check out is Wiki particularly if you knew somebody who is active or loved sport. Especially with Team Sport its actually a great way of socializing and meet new friends. So weather its Softball , Baseball, Soccer or Field Hocky it wouldn’t hurt to check.

My Baby Is Going To A Class

I’m excited for my baby will be attending a class at our local library every Tuesday for 1hour. I think it will be a good preparation for him especially if were already to send him to school at age 3 I believed. I’m supposed to bring him last Tuesday, but since he had a food allergy last Monday, I decided not to bring him until I can really be sure that he’s doing fine. So I’m just so thrilled for him tomorrow even my hubby is really looking forward with it.

It's Done Finally

At last! After canceling my dental appointment last week for some reason (actually my car didn’t start I forgot to turn off the lights inside and it drain the battery) but anyway I was able to call them again last Tuesday and they were able to get me in yesterday, Thursday. It’s a good thing at least I’m done with it for now.

Make Some Money on eBay

EBay? Wow this is a gigantic company already. You can hear them everywhere, from radio and television advertisement and to internet websites as well. Plus I have some friends who make good business Selling on eBay. There’s this one friend of mine who sold his husbands collection of radios online and she actually did pretty well. My husband hobby was to collect and repair good quality bicycles and sells it to people. But now he’s thinking of selling it also on eBay. He actually has some good bicycles that is just sitting on the garage right now. He already set up an account on eBay and I’m pretty sure anytime now that he will start posting it online. And not only that, we are trying to get rid on one of our vehicle, hubby already made a deal with it to his common friend which is actually a very good one though but for whatever reason, the deal didn’t go through. So now we are actually going to try selling it on eBay. He’s just a little bit engaged from work right now, but I’m sure it won’t be for long anymore. I myself would also want to try my luck on eBay. Since we have some pretty good amount of stuff that wasn’t really used. We also keep finding good stuff with a great deal at the store but there’s just no room to store them anymore. That’s why we thought that it will also be a good thing to sell it in eBay and make some money on the side. I’m sure that would really be fantastic.

Was So Worried...

Oh man, I though allergy was just a simple thing for kids and adult, where face will turn red and they will start itching. Apparently there still more into it. I brought my son to the Urgent Care today for a food allergy with “Peanut Butter” . I gave him Reese’s Puff with peanut butter for a snack; he had a break in right away and started scratching his face. I got worried so I called his pediatricians nurse and eventually brought him to Urgent Care just to be sure. I though having an allergic reaction to food is nothing really to worry about, but I was wrong because according to the doctor and even the nurse that I talked to, that if my son will have a hard time breathing I should call 911 right away. That is really something you have to take seriously. That’s why good bye peanut butter…

What to See in Zamboanga (part 2)

Fort Pilar: A must-see for first time visitors, this ancient fortress is a fifteen- minute walk from the City Hall along NS Valderrosa Street. It was originally built in 1635 by Father Melchor de Vera to ward off invaders and intrusions from pirates. From the defense of this Spanish fortification, Zamboanga City grew to what it is today a nice and progressive City.

Cultured Pearls

What is Cultured Pearls? Well I did some research online and this is what I found about Cultured Pearl. A pearl is formed when a small irritant or parasite penetrates and lodges in the mantle tissue of a mollusk. In response, a substance called nacre is secreted, and the creation of a pearl begins. Nacre is a combination of crystalline and organic substances. The nacre builds up in layers, as it surrounds the irritant to protect the mollusk, and after a few years, this build up of nacre forms a pearl. To learn more about Cultured Pearls click here.

If you will happen to be in Zamboanga City, and in search of Cultured Pearls, well the best place for you to go is Lantaka Hotel, there you will find wide varieties of cultured pearls and is affordable to everyone who would like to buy. Just don’t forget to ask for a discount.

Tired Of Annoying Phone Calls? Check This Out

I worked from home, and I’m also a mother to an active 1 year old baby boy. For short im a busy mom just likes anybody else. I try to practice time management as much as I can, try to balanced work from being a mother but with my active little man around, time management doesn’t really seem to worked that well sometimes. But time and privacy is really important for me, especially when I started doing something, I just want to focus and try to get everything done. That is why sometimes I couldn’t stand the fact that there are annoying phone calls who takes away my precious time away from my work and family. Phone calls from telemarketer who sometimes doesn’t seem to understand. When my baby boy is taking a nap during the day, whatever I do during that time is what I called my “me time” but for some reason, this is also the perfect time for unwanted phone calls, calls that I didn’t want coming for its really disturbing my baby’s nap time. Or sometimes when I’m trying to have a bonding moment with my son I hate the fact that I need to get up from the floor, and grab the phone and found out that the person on the other end of the line is only telemarketers. We do have a caller ID and phone number for this annoying phone calls are some times unknown, but I need to answer it because my hubby’s phone number also appears to be unknown especially if his calling from work.

That is why I don’t have to worry about these annoying and unwanted phone calls anymore, is a website online where you can use the reverse phone look up service to look up owners name and address for any unknown phone number. It can also be used to trace harassing telemarketers, and annoying callers. I think this is a great idea for those people who value their privacy and time so much. is available for telephone and cell phone number in United States and Canada. So if you want to learn more about this cool website, check them out at to learn more.

happy And Contented

Yes I'm happy and relieved that Philippine Airlines has added a new flight schedule for Zamboanga City. It used to be one flight in the morning at 5:00 am departure and 1 flight in the afternoon at 5:50pm. My cousin who happens to be in manila right now, mentioned that his flight going to Zamboanga City is at 10:00 am. I was a little bit confused by that for a moment because I know that flight schedule doesn’t exist. So I checked the flight schedules from manila to Zamboanga at Philippine Airlines official website and he proved me wrong. Now I don’t have to worry about staying at the airport for 10hours before my next flight. Plus I’m going to have a companion going to Zamboanga from Manila so that’s kind of nice ha? Somebody’s going to baby sit my baby during the entire flight going to my city.

1 Down 1 More To Go

Our trip is really getting closer and closer, and I’m a little bit busy now. I started putting all the stuff together that we will need for our 6 weeks vacation few weeks ago. But finally last night, we were able to get into it at last, meaning 1 luggage is already ready and 1 more to go. Not to mention the 2 carry on bag, which we will also be bringing with us. My never ending packing is really starting to get into my nerve now, but I need to really get serious about it, this is what usually happens I think when you have a baby with you, and you just want to make sure you got everything right for its really going to be a very long and tiring trip. I’m sure most mothers who have traveled alone with their little tot before can really relate to this kind of situation. Oh well I’ll sure be glad if this will all be over soon… That’s all for now folks.

The Difference betweek HTTP and HTTPS

Very important...........must know. I received this email guys from a friend and thought of posting it here. If this is true then alot of us will be safe and aware.

The main difference between http:// and https:// is

It's all about keeping you secure HTTP stands for HyperText Transport Protocol, which is just a fancy way of saying it's a protocol (a language, in a manner of speaking) for information to be passed back and forth between web servers and clients.The important thing is the letter S which makes the difference between HTTP and HTTPS. The S (big surprise) stands for 'Secure'.

If you visit a website or webpage, and look at the address in the web browser, it will likely begin with the following: http: This means that the website is talking to your browser using the regular 'unsecure' language..

In other words, it is possible for someone to 'eavesdrop' on your computer's conversation with the website. If you fill out a form on the website, someone might see the information you send to that site.

This is why you never ever ever enter your credit card number in an http website!But if the web address begins with https://, that basically means your computer is talking to the website in a secure code that no one can eavesdrop on.

You understand why this is so important, right? If a website ever asks you to enter your credit card information, you should automatically look to see if the web address begins with https://. If it doesn't, there's no way you're going to enter sensitive information like a credit card number!

The Pipers Opera House
Million dollar Dress (its made with coins)
Well my sister in-law from Idaho together with her husband and niece came last Friday to visit us since its holiday today for its Labor day. Anyway they arrived Friday noontime and we all had lunch. I just made pizza for I didn’t know what time are they exactly coming in. I already marinated some Pork loin ready to bake but just wasn’t able to get into it. Anyhow, we all went to Virginia City after lunch which is about 45minutes drive from our house. I’ve been there 3times already before but didn’t noticed that kind of crowd, last Saturday was just so busy, I think its because of the 3days weekend also. Anyway we all had a great time and I had fun taking picture hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did.

Great American Seafood Recipe

If the word seafood popped up in my mind, or if somebody just happened to mentioned that word to me, I can’t help but wonder the different recipes that I knew and learned from my grandmother. I even remember one of my most memorable trip back home, when we were cooking shrimp on Saturday morning, As I put the shrimp in my wok, we started laughing for the shrimp started jumping out from my wok because its still alive and I'm afraid my wok will end up empty. Well I read an article as I was browsing online about the benefits of Domestic Seafood. It says that Domestic seafood is an excellent source of protein, is low in fat and sodium and contains other vitamins and minerals that are important for good health. Thats pretty neat ha? Infact, a recent study from the Harvard School of Public Health found that even modest consumption of fish reduces risk of coronary death by 36 percent. This is significant, because heart disease is the main cause of death among Americans.
I think with seafoods, you will never go wrong with it. I even have my favorite seafood recipe, well at least one of my many favorites. Its called “camaron con gata” (shrimp with coconut milk) it’s not just any kind of coconut milk, but the thick and creamy like coconut sauce cook into perfection hmmm mouth watering. My friend who now lives at the east coast still manage to cook this kind of recipe and since seafood is very much abundant on her place now, because they live near the water so she can just cook this fabulous recipe anytime she wants.
And speaking of seafood recipe, the Great American Seafood cook off website is actually hosting a recipe contest. All you have to do is vote and enter and you might have the chance to win a trip to New Orleans. I did the same thing because I have never been to that area and would love to visit because of their rich history but who know this might be my chance. When I joined the contest I even vote for the best recipe that I think, and its called Louisiana Shrimp and Andouille Cassoulet, it’s a Louisiana Shrimp and Andouille sausage smothered in a white bean casserole from Chef Brian Landry of Louisiana . It looks so yummy though the rest of the 4 recipe is also a winner. That’s what I’ve been telling you, with seafood it’s hard to go wrong with it. I choose this recipe, because not just that it’s in fact a shrimp but there’s also a sausage in it and I think it’s a perfect pair the sausage and shrimp just complements each other. If ever im going to do this kind of recipe, I will pretty much used the same ingredients but exept for the kidney/cannelloni beans, I’m not a big fan of beans and I hope it wont affect the taste of it.

So if your interested of what I’m talking about, and for you to have the chance to win a trip to New Orleans and find out more about the cook off recipe then visit .

Hubby's Hobby

Hubby was into bike racing few years ago especially when he still lived in New Jersey, he love that kind of sport. But when he moved here to Nevada, he got so busy and didn’t have the chance to race anymore. But he stills in fact a big fan and will always be a big fan of bike racing. Every year they always have a Tour de Nez , whether it’s in Reno, Truckee or Lake Tahoe he always make it a point to be able to go and watched the said event, at least 2 out of 3 though.

But anyway, because of his passion when it comes to bike racing and other bike race paraphernalia, he decided to make a business out of it. It just started as a hobby and now people are actually buying bikes from him (second hand bikes). Besides he’s selling it to a much cheaper price compare when you buy it brand new, it will cost you thousands of money for brand new bike. So to you honey, keep it up..

Proud of my little man.

Yesterday was my son’s immunization from the travel clinic. He only had hepatitis-A immunization for that’s the only immunization he is qualified for now, aside from the immunizations administered by his pediatrician and some pills or tablets that we will be bringing with us. I thought his going to cry like he usually does, but he surprised me yesterday, he did really good, and I’m so proud of him. My husband loves to call him little man, and now after what happened yesterday from his immunization, it makes me think, that my baby is really growing up now, and he is indeed a little man now. Time flies so fast, I’m just lucky I was able to spend a lot of time with my baby for they grow so fast. I’m sure not all mothers were given this opportunity, not here.

Get Out from that mess-Bills IQ


Debt, I guess that’s what most people have in common, whether it’s Credit card debt, your going through or your filling up for Bankruptcy because of uncontrollable debt, which most of the time is unavoidable especially if its family emergency and medical bills are just filing-up. Or even have a Credit counseling to Consolidate debt , get a Debt help alot of company's are doin this so you will have a Debt relief, however you want to do it, just to alleviate the situation. Though not all of us were born with a golden spoon in our mouth. But for those who are not so lucky, this is where we will always end up. That is why it’s very important to have a financial plans and security. But sometimes things happen for a reason and some of this are beyond our control. Did you know of any person who doesn’t want security in life? Of course all of us want to live a peaceful and debt free life. But sometimes that is next to impossible.

I had a friend before, who live a normal life. What I mean to that is she can just buy anything she wants and needs at anytime. Its not that money is an object, but she had a full control of her life. Until her husband got sick and had to undergo different types of surgery, that wasn’t on the plan, that wasn’t expected at all. And you know how it is when medical bills starts filling up. I think they tried Debt consolidation but things are just getting out of control. So as a result, they filled for Bankruptcy. I just hope they will be able to get out from that mess.

Anyway, if you’re on the same situation, you don’t know what to do with your debt. Check Bills IQ, they have some ways to assist you in understanding financial health and ways to improve your credit score. Check them out before it’s too late. Its Bills IQ
