Parties here and there again!

Parties are here again because it's time to celebrate the goodness of Jesus in our lives. Hubby and I once talked that when we have kids we will never introduce Santa as the reason for Christmas... we will tell our kids that...the reason Santa give gifts on Christmas day is because he was so happy that its Jesus' birthday.

So since its Christmas season it's just means that food and parties are all around and as for me and my team... our kids parties will start on Friday, 4th of December until the 10th. Then after that will be adults parties. woohoo! Thinking about the parties feels like I'm gaining a pound now.

If I'm only a disciplined eater I won't be thinking about and could freely eat all the good food serve in front of me. whew! this will gonna be tough!

Wish I could do more...

Two nights ago hubby and I went to pick-up a friend at the airport. Halfway there our van broke up and theres nothing we can do but wait for awhile for some aid from friend.
But it took then a long time to fix the van. So we decided that I'll go pick him up alone and drop him at 24h hotel by a cab. It also took us a long time waiting for the airport cab because there was a huge traffic and a lot of people inside the airport waiting area.
I really felt bad for my American friend because I found him sweating a lot and he told me that he waited long time with the immigration because this lady officer asked him a lot of  questions. Then while we were outside another lady accidentally pushed him with the cart she was carrying and he fall to the ground backside. whew! goodness! I don't know what to do during that time.
Finally the I had settled him in the hotel. And he said he had great time.
Then yesterday, we were together the whole time because we talked about everything (means: work, ministry, life and health). When were talking I found out that his health was not good the past few days and he was undergone operation three months ago and he got hospitalized few days before he left for Philippines.
I wanted to cry while listening to him (I wished that God could preserve people like him, who is devoted in HIS service at any cost.)
How I wish I could help him in what he is going through!
May God bless and give him the desires of his heart!

Famous Dream

A friend of mine  dreamed that my dear pastor is dying, and in her dream all of the church was crying but before our dear pastor finally closes his eyes he handed a note that says... please tell Carmel to lose weight, and in her dream they were all indignant in a way because how come he only left a note for me while there are lots of important matter to note about.
My friend woke with this weird feeling and she told the dream to all of us and when my pastor have known about this... he can't help himself but cry in laughing. This happens like five years ago and even up this very moment when my pastor remember this dream he still can't help himself but laugh and laugh and laugh!
I still love him!

HIV problem?

When I showered just 5 five minutes ago I remembered the joke that my friend told us and there I go smiling to myself.  Our friend told us that this person (won't tell the name) has HIV problem, and hearing this made all of us  (our team) look so shocked. We did all asked him since when and how and how did he found out?.. Then our friend told us that; "can't you see it? it's obvious that he has HIV... he has "Hair Is Vanishing problem (actually means he is getting bald)"!" And we all burst to laughing for a long time. We were not laughing about the person but about the joke.
So when I shampooed my hair can't help but thinking about hair loss shampoo that help our hair from falling. I just hope that hubby and I won't get HIV specially when we get older.

Happy thanksgiving to all my American friend!

Supplement for Hubby

Hubby is skinny though he eats well and sometimes he did eat more  but his body is still the same and what bugles my mind is when he ate a lot he doesn't gain any weight but when sickness strike he losses weight so easily.

I keep on telling him to take a multivitamin supplements not to make him fat but help his immune system strong so that he won't easily get sick specially that rainy days are here and cough and cold is a very common ailments today.

I'm hoping that I will remember to buy him a multivitamins whenever we pass by a drugstore because I kept on forgetting this also.

Money matter with hubby and I

I had a huge fight with hubby the other day... the reason why?... because of money. We actually often fight over money. Hubby thought or see it that I am the spender and he is the keeper, but actually we fought because I wanted to do this thing but I can't because hubby won't let me do it.
The bad annoying plus factor part is.. I also contributed in earning that money we have. It bugs me that I worked and yet can't do what I want from the payment of my labor.
Don't get me wrong friends who read this post of mine because my hubby is a very good person and he holds our money very tight too in fear that we might lost it. He is a very good person inside out. A lot of our friends like him than they have liked me.
This is just me having hard time understanding our situation because no matter how I reason out hubby is still right in keeping our money for the reason also that if he give it to me.. it won't last long no matter how much it is.

Well, to me money is just money, yes its vital but it still a thing for disposal, though its value don't change no matter how dirty old looking it is. I'm not a buyer though ( I mean I don't spend much in shopping because  I seldom do so or I only shop 3 times a year I think). But, what I love the most with the money give is to give it to people I love, to the kids I know at church, my love ones, people I know who needs some financial help. I also love to cook food and invite friends to come over for dinner.
Hubby doesn't understand this heart of mine, to him money is important and when we lost it its hard to get it back, and its  even harder to ask people for help.

Thinking of black friday

I remember some bonding moments with my grandma when she was still with us. She taught me a lot of good things which a part of who I am today. She was actually my inspiration or I called it "the wind beneath my wings". If she still alive today, I will take care of her (and now I am becoming too emotional here..tears are almost fell.)
Well, grandma taught me how to pray and we prayed together during holy week and of course specially Black Friday's, still remember during all souls day too when she and I would go to the cemetery for severals reasons: first, she wanted to visit the deceased beloved ones; second, she was hoping to see relatives and other friends who lives faraway and just came to visit too; and third, she wants to be hired to pray by other people for their dead (and if she gets hired means money for me too because I pray with her. lol!)
But don't practice this anymore for just one reason.. i have renewed my relationship with Jesus!

Cameras and Batteries

I am not a gadgets person but this past few months I've been dreaming of having a new camera of any brand as long as the battery is different from our old cam, it could be a nikon and nikon camera batteries i think is dependable unlike our old cam battery which is always low battery, even after its recharged .
I'm sad to say though that I might not be able to have one because of up coming big monthly expenses that hubby and I have to face. My dream probably will remain a dream unless one day the Lord will make it to fulfillment, who knows anyway!.

belly fatties!

I am like a pocket book writer who writes his or her fantasies into a book. They create a story that others thought  happens in a real life. And as for me posting here on my blog about how burn belly fat fast makes me just like the novelist since it doesn't happen to me. But I really would like to make it happen I'm only lacking in self discipline and motivation. It's hard to persevere since people around me don't do it. I can't force hubby too to do it with me since as I would like to loose some weight, hubby on the other hand need some gaining and not losing.
Life is tough but fun! So lets enjoy it in a good way! God bless everyone!

Let's run for a weight loss cause

My friend set a running or jog for a cause activity for our team that she called a "jog for mission cause". We do this every other Saturday morning starting from six until eight o'clock. This has been going from March till' last week of September twenty-ten before our mission trip to Cambodia. We were actually thinking of continuing this   to continue our fund raising since we have a mission twice a year (local and foreign) so that we have funds for trips promotions and other expenses.
I wish I have best running shoes then so that I won't walk most of the time when we have the jogging. I walked because I'm not in proper running attire and sometimes just wearing my flip flops. I went just to support the team not really because I wanted to run.
Since our running activity has stopped I stop walking too, and the gym don't look appealing to me to go to, so I think I need a set of resistance bands to motivate me to do workout even here at home and I don't need to go anywhere to workout, and then with my running shoes hubby and I could just go run around our block and done. This things will be easily purchase online with no hassle at all, it will be delivered right to your door.

Happy that Pacquiao Wins

I am not a pro boxing person coz I can't stay long time watching that game for I felt sorry for both person,  nor I am not a big fan of Manny.  I am happy because he brought pride to the Filipinos and the country. At least from the ten percent dislikes to the Filipinos... Manny's victory brought four percent likes I think.

How to Lose while eating?

Just got back from my team leaders house blessing and team Cambodia thanksgiving dinner party. Though I haven't eaten breakfast and lunch today.. but my dinner was fabulous! How could I ever loose weight if things are like this.
How I wish that even though I ate more would still not gain weight t all, but that is very impossible for me. If only there is a fast way to lose belly fat since mine is getting bigger because of eating and drinking sodas a lot.. I would be happy to take one if it promises safety and effectiveness!

House Tripping...

Hubby and I are in a house craze this and next month. We are planning of moving next year to a cheaper place and farther :( too since there is no way we can find a cheaper place here. We are hoping and praying to find a one thousand five hundred amount for house for rent, since its faraway anyway.. so much as well hope its very cheap.

Other friends were suggesting though to go to Pag-ibig office (a housing loan office) to see for closure rent-to-own-houses and see if we could afford one. So hubby and I decided to lessen our rent now so that we can save to afford a rent to own house in the future. These houses are actually bare.. so when you get it.. you as the new owner will be the one to finish the house in whatever design you like.

As for me and hubby, we've been planning of what would we do first when we get the house. We  have plans of what kind of  drawer handles  we should put and a lot of other things that we would buy for the house. Though we don't have the house yet or the money for the house but in our mind it seems that the house is already done. :) That's how excited we are!

media and wellness

We have a team dinner fellowship at my team leaders house today because we have three American visitors. It was fun to hang around and have some ladies talk at the womens sanctuary which is the kitchen area. I did have a good laugh with them as well as good talk too.

We talked a lot about random things and one topic that stood was the pros and cons of media nowadays specially to the children, and how the media take more of our time. As for me when it come to television, I am not really into it, but somehow would like to watch news and other shows. To tell you.. I am just like a child who appreciate the ads more than anything too... it also encourages me to do some good things.

Whenever I saw skinny women doing gym for a particular campaign or product, it somehow encourages me to do the same. Talking about wellness, have your heard about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy? Haven't tried this and I don't know if I would like to try too. And if we would like to know, the best to find them is through research and article in the net.

I did nothing today :L

These past months and days my life was like a crazy whirlwind and have been dreaming of days like today since then. Now that I am here at home doing nothing feels weird too. Its not that I don't have anything to do.. in  fact my work is waiting for me to take actions... its just  I promised myself that I will give her a holiday when things and activities are over. I was hoping that I will sleep 24/7 when all are done but I'm not. Here I am in my room wide awake and facebooking to the max (and telling you I'm not loving it.)

I am thinking or reading too since I started to read a book few weeks ago but reading doesn't sound appealing either. huh! don't know what to do with myself. I don't feel like going anywhere too besides going somewhere to eat and after wanting to come home again and just lie down in bed.
This is lazy me today :-/.
