Photohunt: Bags

Image
This weeks theme forPhoto Hunt is about BAGS. I can count only a few women who doesn't have any liking of bags. Women in general do like bags, shoes and bling2x right? No wonder  when hubby and I went to the mall for a "window shopping" and if I pass a store or a window that displayed good looking bags it seems like I am magnetized hahaha!! Hubby then hold ( haha) me because for sure I will stay in that store forever. And no wonder why hubby told me that I could already start a boutique because I had so many. Though some are not too expensive but still if a "thing" cost more than $10 that money should be worth spending.



My mama's 10yr death anniversary

Image
Actually my mama's 10yr death anniversary was last Sunday, October 25. Of course I remember her that day (everyday pa nga eh) the experienced that me, my sister, my brother and niece, relatives and friends endured.

I didn't want to post an entry about her reminiscing her passing because I don't want to CRY!! And browsing the pictures of her, looking at it, remembering those moments captured in the photos makes me cry and my heart keeps on beating like a gazillion of elephants running,  I like  to throw up. But I guess in life we have to face realities and some realities are not nice nor it makes us SMILE!! So today as I was browsing my picture folder I saw this picture of my mom on her 58 year birthday (she died at the age of 63). I was working in Iligan at this time and I promise to her that I would throw a party for her. Of course, as does any mother do they don't like the idea and she gave me all sort of alibi's and reasoning but I am destined to gave her a birt…

A contest for winter scarves...

Image
This morning I woke up around 7:30 am then  I checked immediately my blog since I haven't updated any since Sunday. I happened to see UTAH MOMMYs message and she is inviting me to join her contest. It is about two winter scarves and jeez aren't they so pretty. It is more prettier because she made it by herself!! What a talent huh!! Wish I could make like that but I can't so I decided to join the contest and fingers cross I might win hehehe!!

An afternoon at St. Benedictine Monastery

Image
The weather yesterday was beautiful and with that kind of weather many people here in MI love to go outside spending time together  capturing the moment of Fall before the rigid Winter weather strikes us. So yesterday we decided to see pumpkin patch but it was change on the last minute, instead we decided to visit a Benedictine Monastery just a few miles away from us.
I love visiting Monasteries and churches it makes me happy. When I was in Iligan working (around  90's) me and my friends used to visit and do our retreat in Bukidnon. We used to visit Monastery of the Transfiguration and do our weekend retreat there. After I resigned from worked I already don't have time to visit any monasteries and do retreats. And so when I found out that we have Monasteries around I couldn't keep myself from looking at there website and reading there news from time to time.
Yesterday  was the time my wish was granted. We were at the  parking lot hubby noticed me I was already smiling and …

Last Sunday I attended Jonna's baby shower. It was a blast I had so much fun and the host Angel, April and Vanessa did a good job. And mind you if it is a Filipino party foods are great hehehe! May lechon pa at ang crispy nang skin yummmy!!!

Apple picking

Image
ast Monday, hubby asked me if I will go with them (his brother) buy 6 bushels of apples. I was eager to come with them thinking that we are going to picked the apples at an apple orchard. But as hubby called each apple orchard located in the southeast of Michigan, he found out that it is better to buy already picked apples than "U" picked apple at the orchard itself. Then he found out that our neighboring apple orchard/cider mill has the most cheaper apples per bushel. So off we go to an apple orchard just a mile from our house LOL!!

Since, I came here in US I thought that every single house in the country side has at least one or more apple trees at the back of their house but geez I was wrong LOL!! We have one apple tree here in our backyard but hubby called it "crab apple" as I tasted it last week it taste so sour as in very sour I could describe it like I am eating an unripe mango. Here are some of the pictures I like to share.

Last Saturday was the 2nd birthday of my inaanak Ashley, her mom Rowena held the party at Jeepers inside the Great Lake Mall. Many of our friends came with their children in tow. OF course the party was fun with lots of chikka, food, picture taking, rides for the kids and after the party we went malling. Here are some of the pictures!

Me once a victim too....

Good Monday to yah all!!

Last week, after the typhoon flooded almost the whole part of Metro Manila  and other parts sorrounding Manila a "scandal" erupted resorting many pinoy's to get angry to a one woman who is working in Dubai.

But that was not all my story is all about....as I was reading many writings and comments in the internet and as I also read Mel's comments that he was a victim of identity theft I so suddenly realized and remember that I TOO was once a victim of identity theft!!!

Here was my story, my fiance (my husband) now was already talking about him petitioning me and him coming to visit me. And because I don't have a passport at that time I decided to get a passport. That time I had to go to another city to get a passport because it was there that in my region has the DFA. So I gather the papers that are needed for a passport and off I go to CDO. I was there very early in the morning that I knew for sure that after lunchtime (were they used to rele…

Jacqui Bermejo a victim of identity theft.....

Yesterday after I post my entry here I was again searching for more details about Jacqui Bermejo. For an educated person like her it is more unlikely that she will say something about it....but on the other hand who knows right? So I was searching on the website and I found this article A MUST READ...

Dubai: The victim of an identity theft known to many as Jackie or Jacque talks of her devastating experience after a comment was posted in her name on the social networking site, facebook, saying that the severe typhoon that battered Manila is "deserved".

The 31-year-old marketing executive in Dubai was battered with thousands upon thousands of messages, e-mails, and phone calls about the comments that said: "It's a good thing I'm here in Dubai. There might be a lot of sinners back there Philippines. So, yeah, they deserved what happened.&quo…

The "dumbest pinay" Jacque Bermejo

Image
I don't know if you guys heard about the latest scandal? I first read this in Facebook and a lot of Filipinos (of course) reacted to this pinay. Her name is Jacque Bermejo...and her is the story.

Jacque Bermejo – this is the name of the Filipina in Dubai now dubbed as the “dumbest Pinay” after posting a Facebook wall comment tantamount to being heartless and inhumane.

Jacque Bermejo commented on the Definitely Filipino Facebook page saying the following lines: “buti n lng am hir in dubai! maybe so many sinners bak der! so yeah deserving wat hapend!”

Jacque Bermejo needless to say is now an Internet Star, but we don’t think she’s enjoying her popularity. Filipinos all over the world hate her for her comment, some calling her names and a few even now campaigning for her to be declared a personan non grata.


Who is Jacque Bermejo?

Jacqueline Bermejo is a Marketing and PR Officer based in Dubai. Yes, she is a PR Officer and she obviously needs to do more than miracles to rebuild her reput…
