Sad news..

Image
I woke up this morning around 7Am. I immediately checked my emails, opened my yahoo messenger thinking my niece might leave some offline messages, then I checked my friendster inbox. I found out I have one message from my former officemate who is now residing in Canada and here is her message...Hi Kim,
I dunno kung nakabalita naka about kang H.  last week nagbalita si S. sa ako nga naa siya sa ICU kay na heart attack, today i just got the email from C na namatay na siya after na bypass sa Cebu Doc. Luoy pa gyod Kim kay gibiyaan na diay siya sa iyang wife miuban sa laing lalaki. It's really sad. We just pray for him.
AFter I read the message I had this mixed emotion, nagkamali-mali ang type ko I am trembling I am angry I cried. I couldn't believe it! I cried because I know H., we've work together for how many years, we are the original accounting staff in that company and I've no problem with our team until I resigned from work and now he is gone? He is a very good person…

We have snow today it seems impossible because it is spring time but hubby who live in his entire life in Michigan says expect the unexpected!! I am so ready for spring  I have plants ready to be planted. But I can't go against mother nature so be it then I have to wait for a little while to start planting my roses.

A busy Friday...

This morning I had bagoong and piniritong tilapia for breakfast. Heavy na heavy ang breakfast ko since we are going to my brother in laws property to get more woods for winter. I finished my breakfast with so much gusto hubby only took cereals with milk and carrot juice. Anyway, after I finished eating I started packing for food, water and coffee. We then picked up my step-daughter in her house and off we go. We filled the huge trailer with split woods for barely two hours!! Hubby thought we are so fast jeez if I work and so fired up I don't like to stopped. After working hubby was so hungry we went to Mama Marias resto and got some fish and chips (remember it is Friday no meat lol). After eating we headed home, but surprise2x I am not that too tired!! I raked the twigs and some dry leaves in the front garden, after that I went inside the house and clean up the kitchen! Then I took a shower after shower I change the bedsheets and pillowscases jeez I only eat bagoong and piniritong…

Boyet Fajardo Scandal

Have you girls and guys heard about this scandal in the Philippines that happened last March 13, 2009? I was so kind of late because I just found this scandal at Bobbelles blogsite. After, I read belles entry I was not feeling okay I just get mad so I google the name and here it was all the people are reacting over the blogs and you tube about what this so called "famous designer" did. I also watched the youtube video hinde ko nakayanan after nakita kung pinaluhod nang balahurang "designer" na ito ang isang cashier to apologize here is the story and the video.

On Sept. 1, 1980, he opened his first shop on Banaue street in Quezon City as a bid to join the big names in the made-to-order industry at 17 and a college sophomore (at UST, where he was majoring in Fine Arts). Boyet Fajardo believed that he had what it takes to make it in fashion alongside the more established names like Ben Farrales.
Today, Boyet is one of the biggest names in RTW. His Boyet Fajardo line is …

A Queens throne...

Image
Two years ago hubby and I went to Holland,Michigan to see their Tulip Festival. After a day and a night of wandering around town the next day we proceeded to Grand Rapids and visited Meijers Gardens and Sculpture Park . I was so amaze of the trees, flowers and bushes that are well maintained and most specially the butterflies around. There garden is so huge we had to ride a trolley car  to go around and see sculptures around the park. But among all the plants that I've saw there is one thing that catches my eye. Ito siya...
Oh ayan, now imagine it kung harangin kang maging Queen of your kingdom at ito ang queens seat gusto mo pa bang uupong reyna? Sa akin okey lang basta ito din lang naman ang dapat uupuan nang aking mga alalay. Hahahaha!!

Spring has sprung

Image
Wohooo spring is here indeed. Last few days ago we had a taste of spring and boy it does makes me feel good specially when I feel the suns heat on my skin. As what one title of a poem says “Spring has sprung” and so does the trees and some bushes too. I looked at our lilac bushes the other day there buds are sprouting already. I was trimming and cutting my flowers old branches and loving every moment of it. I am experimenting something though,  I had this 3 evergreen tree in front of our house they are growing naturally pretty but I like them to spread there branches so I cut the tip of the tree and will see if it does do good than harm crossing my fingers!!I am a nature kind of person I love to plant flowers and specially trees. Last year, I tasted the fruit of my labor -wink- my peach trees that hubby and I planted few years ago bore fruit. At first it sprouts plenty of blossoming flowers but it came out to have 13 fruits but on the last time that it was ready to be picked 5 fru…

Hiso (hair tonic)

Okay guys ang gals who among you do have a problem with dry scalp and dry hair specially in Winter. (Raising my right hand) Yup that is me! And if you don’t have that problem you are lucky. Every winter that is my problem here my scalp tend to be very dry and so my hair the result is dandruff which is pag spring and summer naman wala akong dry scalp and dandruff. Siguro because the temperature is different from winter time. 
The other day I had enough already, I’d tried all kind of brands for dandruff shampoo from Neutrogena to Selsun Blue wa epek pa rin. Then I remember I brought from last year a bottle of Virgin Coconut Oil. I remember my Mama told me that when she was young and living in the province in a Barrio they used to do some hiso with pure coconut milk. Because I noticed at that time even if my Mama was in her 60’s already she still don’t have a gray hair and her hair is jet black and the hair texture is strong. Remembering all those stuff I shake off my lazy bug in me and …

Being Tan

The first time I came here I don’t have any idea that people had to go to a tanning salon pay a certain amount of money or be a member of a salon just to become tan specially in the summer season. And I also didn’t realize that it doesn’t look good to some people hehe.

It was a hot afternoon I and hubby decided to go to Mc donalds to get my favorite yogurt parfait. Hubby didn’t like to order in drive thru so he parked the car and he went inside to order. While I was seated comfortably inside the car listening my favorite R & B music, across from where we were parked is a tanning salon. I was looking at it and all of a sudden the door opened. And two blond haired women came out and I was so shocked of what I saw!! The two women looked like reddish that I could compare it to a cooked shrimp or crabs hehehe. Yup they seem like being cooked. I was giggling to the max since it is my first time to see a woman who has just done tanning. I couldn’t believe it, it doesn’t looked good…

'Transfigured' In today's Gospel, Mark says that Jesus was "transfigured." The Greek word that is translated "transfigure" is a word that means "change". As a matter of fact, it is the word "metamorphosis"-a Greek word used in the English language. That specific word is used on only two other occasions in the New Testament, both times by Paul, and both times in reference to a change - not in Jesus, but in us: ~~~In the letter to the Romans, Paul says, "Do not model yourselves on the behavior of the world around you, but let your behavior change, modeled by your new mind." (12:2) ~~~In the second letter to the Corinthians, Paul says,"And we, with our unveiled faces reflecting like mirrors the brightness of the Lord, all grew brighter and brighter as we are changed into the image that we reflect; this is the work of the Lord who is Spirit,"(IICor.3:18) My own transfiguration... Sometimes we can look at the events of the G…

A dream house

Image
What happened to my Saturday? I went to my friends house today for lunch she live just very close to me just LESS than 5 minutes drive kung maganda ang panahon pwedeng mag-hike lang. When I get out from our driveway it was foggy yay!! I don't like driving in foggy, snowy, rainy kind of weather a lot of things to looked at. Anyhow, after eating fried tilapia and sinigang na bangus we watched filipino movie at around 3:00 pm I went home. We were scheduled to sent money to Pinas this afternoon but I was sitting on the recliner chair when I dozed off and you know how much time I slept it's about 4 long hours!! It was not a nap huh? Anyhow, here is my blog entry for today.

A dream house......

When I was young I used to draw a house it was not a typical nipa house because in my drawing it has an antenna of a tv, a dining area, a living area with tv, a bedroom so I could say it was a bungalow type. But outside of the house I draw a sea with banca sailing on it. Then I draw rice field, …

TGIF

Wow it is Friday again where does all the days go? It seems that everything now a days just go by so fast sometimes we had a hard time grasping what is happening. 
My week was a bit busy I should say. As I looked back I only stayed at home for the whole day last Wednesday to do my household chore which is doing the laundry. Monday, hubby and me went to the bank after that we went to his nephews insurance company office to pay a whole year of insurance payment. Then we went to  Sams to shopped more carrots for our juicing and some stuff. Then we went to Sav plus to buy tilapia fish and again some stuff. Arrived home almost completely dark I was exhausted. Then Tuesday, we went for a family brunch at a nearby resto at 11 am. Hubby was excited and happy to see all his grown up children  specially those who live a little bit far from us arrived to have brunch with us. We stayed at the resto for almost 3 hours hehe. Wednesday was my time to do the laundry I thought we gonna get some woods b…
