..could never find the missing piece..

I don't want to say I'm lucky I did not suffer from typhoon sendong  like those whom became victims of it,  because I am emotionally affected. There were actually instances where when I cannot bring myself to watched the damage Sendong caused on television. In fact I still cannot hold myself not to cry when I remember it. I still believe God has good reasons and purpose when He allows these things to happen.  


I don't know how those people who lost loved ones to still continue living knowing that they'll never find their missing piece ever again. It would remain missing forever unless the good Lord would heal their heart and make it whole again.  How I wish that I could just dry up Sendong's flooding memory like drying up my boots using a boot dryers to make life beautiful and warm again for those who suffer from the flood.

Party and gifts

Last Sunday was our church Christmas party, it was held just in our church and instead of doing it in the usual time, my pastor decided to do it in the afternoon so that those who live far could attend the event too. It was actually beneficial with me and hubby since we live hours drive farther.

The party was fun indeed specially that everyone went home with a gift, the gift received may not that expensive but a gift is still a gift and getting one was indeed of great delight. As for me and hubby: we get a pail and two big size meat loaf and  my pastor's wife gave me an eyeliner which I really like co'z I am blessed with a long eyelashes so all I need to do is enhance the beauty of my eyes. I do have a friend who one time avail eyelash growth products because her eyelashes are smaller.

I am thankful of the gifts I received this year and the big chunk of my thanksgiving is for giving us my baby! :) Praise YOU dear Lord for everything (for the good and the challenging one).

I still believe in Jesus...though Sendong storms my way!

I believe there is a reason behind these all. It may hard to see the purpose of God, but let's all believe that He knows all things and He still is in control of everything. Our faith maybe darkened by what happened but let's just all press on co'z even in such times as this... God is still God and He is still good!

Three days to go (Z's dedication)

Went to the mall today to buy some stuff needed for my Z's special day. I am excited and almost can't wait for the day to come. I don't expect a lot of people co'z I want this to be simple so that  the true essence of the day will  will be felt.
I actually did not invite some of my relatives... just my sister and two cousins. I did not invites my aunts and uncles and other cousins. I know I'm "lagot" but what can I do my budget tells me ... just a few. So invited only those who are close to me and my family. Those who indeed have shared their precious moments with my baby Z.  I love my baby so much and so I love those who love her as well.
I choose the date for the reasons that I don't have to invite loads of people for they too are busy with their holidays.
Praying that the Lord would indeed be glorified during this day.

Ooopps... you did it again!

Yup.... you did it again. I still believe there is still goodness in you. Yet... your making those around you's life uncomfortable. No wonder only few people wants to be friend with you, actually those who tried  and remains... they do it out of love of Jesus (they make you part of their ministry). It's a shame you don't see it and change your attitude and instead of reaching in... try to reach out co'z you are no longer some kind of a youth... gees... your old!

A tooth issue

Five years ago I got a bathroom accident where it led to my tooth damage. I slip my foot and  fell face down into the corner of the toilet bowl. It was a horrifying experience I will never forget.  I got a swollen face and a broken tooth. I'm thankful now though that aside from that said damage there's nothing more. But the tooth issue is I am still suffering up to the moment.

I actually told hubby the other day if we could visit the dentist co'z I feel like removing it co'z there is this sensation I feel that is really head boggling sometimes. But hubby doesn't like my idea co'z my tooth still looks alright from the outside only there's this almost not visible crack.  How I wish I could find a cheap dental insurance quotes so that going to the dentist is a "no problem" anymore.  Getting your teeth fixed means you need to have a great fortune in exchange for a good and nice dentures.

God's Promise :)

I woke up at 2:30am earlier and since then I wasn't able to go back to sleep again. :(


Psalm 84

New International Version (NIV)
     1 How lovely is your dwelling place,
   LORD Almighty!
2 My soul yearns, even faints,
   for the courts of the LORD;
my heart and my flesh cry out
   for the living God.
3 Even the sparrow has found a home,
   and the swallow a nest for herself,
   where she may have her young—
a place near your altar,
   LORD Almighty, my King and my God.
4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
   they are ever praising you.[c]
 5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
   whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.
6 As they pass through the Valley of Baka,
   they make it a place of springs;
   the autumn rains also cover it with pools.[d]
7 They go from strength to strength,
   till each appears before God in Zion.
 8 Hear my prayer, LORD God Almighty;
   listen to me, God of Jacob.
9 Look on our shield,[e] O God;
   look with favor on your anointed one.
 10 Better is one day in your courts
   than a thousand elsewhere;
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
   than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
   the LORD bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
   from those whose walk is blameless.
 12 LORD Almighty,
   blessed is the one who trusts in you.

I'm happy for her :)

My friend and I together with my adorable little angel went to my friends new house to see if she could take it already (meaning: she evaluates her house to see any damage or anything) before she could finally sign the paper contract  from the developer. I'm happy co'z  after a long time of waiting she's finally cleared and ready to move in.

While we tour around the house I couldn't help myself but think of my own house as well. I am excited as she is, but the house needs to be tiled and needs to set-up to make it look like a real home. Looking at the house made me wish that if... I only have a job that pays really good  like Software Engineer Jobs maybe, I probably saves money for home interior design I will do this  make our house a beautiful place to live in.

Well, I know I don't have a lot of money to spend over a lot of things I desire but I have enough for the day co'z my God provides for me :).

Done with the half

It's been  a week that I did not do any laundering because:
1. my body was kind of sore and I felt so lazy,
2. tired co'z I don't get enough sleep (you know when you have baby.. you wake almost every hour),
3. I feel like really have to update my blog but every time I turn the computer on.. I open my facebook account and play online games on facebook :d,
4. blame it to the sun co'z it didn't come out often... so the rain keeps coming.
5. the rest is history :))))

..but finally I felt like my baby has almost ran out of clothes to wear, so this morning when she fell asleep I took the courage to face our dirty clothes and now... the victory is mine. hurrah to me! :)

Miss my hubby badly

Duh! our dvd-vcd player is broken, we just run out of cooking gas, almost no food,  almost no drinking water,  it's raining outside and no hubby. I am just thankful that the electric power is still on co'z it was out for more than an hour yesterday. I probably would cry if even the light is out.

I can't wait for tonight co'z hubby say's he'll be home tonight. I don't care if he comes home late as long as he comes home tonight. As a song goes: " I can take all the madness the world has to give, but I won't last a day without you!" Cheesy I know...  but who can blame me if I miss my husband so badly today.

Little mini-fan

It's December and coldness is supposed to strike in but for goodness sake it is still warm and actually steaming hot as always. I'm still sweating even right after shower and or the electric is steady towards me. There was actually this one time when we went to attend a small church near by and since it was near midday it was quite warm, I could actually see beads of sweats running down my forehead and my babies head was sweating hard that it looks like she just came out from shower.

And because we have a five months old baby-I told hubby to look for a mini hand fan we can use for our baby co'z this mini fan is very small and we could bring it anywhere we go. All we need is a rechargeable batteries so that we have extra batteries with us for batteries don't last long.

My eyes are failing me

I'm so tired today, I don't know why though since I had good sleep last night, my baby did not give us a hard time. But I haven't get any nap today since I have things to do. I just have the urge to update this blog since I haven't to five days already co'z I was away. Tomorrow we're going to attend a friends weeding and won't be back until the next day.

My eyes are closing as I type this post '(

We did it!

Hubby and her sister went to the municipal hall to inquire how to do a  thing (a late registration thing). They went to ask how they could register our beebee. Some people told us that it's not the right way to do it. So at first we seek legal advises on how to do it but no one really would like to help us since the process is long and we needed more than a hundred thousand pesos to do it, at least a hundred and fifty.

Well, God has the money and I don't. After months of really figuring out things, we finally came to a decision of doing the "late registration" process. I prayed really hard about this thing. I prayed for peace and that God would guide us to the right person who would help us not in exchange of money or something but with all sincerity in his/her heart.  Because I believe that if the person would ask us for money in exchange of the help.. well then its not the right thing to do and we are ready to wait again and pray for what the Lord will do.

So... as hubby and sister-in-law went this morning I prayed that the Lord would give us the favor. It may not the right way in other peoples eyes for their own reasons, but I prayed that if the Lord will grant us the favor then He made it possible for us and I'm free of guilt or something.

Now... that hubby had made the registration and paid the processing  fee (the right amount), we are just waiting for the paper to be release on Monday and soon we could get a passport for our beebee.

To God be the glory who made things possible for us! :)

..awake and alone...

Ok, I'm not totally alone co'z I have a sleeping little girl besides me, what made me feel lonely is hubby co'z he won't be coming home tonight because of work. He'll be picking up a couple friends/missionaries who will be joining us in our ministry. They're here to study our Filipino language so that they'll be effective in the ministry. I say work because picking them up is partly work with hubby (my lover is in-charge of things like this).

Being alone with my little girl tonight  was quite a night. She was having tantrums, refusing to sleep, don't like to be left alone lying on the bed, she wants milk but not really drinking it (co'z I could see the white liquid running down her chin) but when I took the bottle out of her mouth she'll cry like crazy. I feel so alone without hubby.

When my baby cries like no tomorrow with things that I know nothing about... it made wish of a treatment to such uneasiness. If it's only like an addiction thing-y, I probably had brought her to a rehab for an oxycontin detox addiction to relieve her of her discomfort. I really don't know how single parent does when their child does crazy wailing.

I hope and pray that hubby would come home safe and sound, early and happy tomorrow.

Zzzzzzz!

It's crazy to say that this picture of hubby and my little girl create in me a little sadness. It seems that she's saying; "bye..bye mommy... it's school time".  But the look in her eyes seems telling mommy I don't wanna go if your  not coming. 

Those lovely eyes that stares at me... made me want to go upstairs and hug her tight (co'z she's upstairs, in our bedroom taking a morning nap). Ooh... how I love my baby! :)

Tired and awake :(

... but still need to do things. I'm here in our bed lying front-side facing my netbook.  I'm tired co'z I woke up too early this morning due to this precious little lady sleeping besides me. She woke up every now and then for milk and what makes it more terrible for hubby and me is... because since she sleeps early she woke up very early too and make noise to awaken her parents.

Well, there's nothing we can do but force ourselves to open our eyes and attend to her needs or she will cry the loudest and awaken our neighbors which means more trouble to her parents than waking up early. Ooh... I love my baby so much that waking up early doesn't mean a thing anymore.

It feels like I'm twenty-four hours awake all day. So help me God and make me lose weight :D

Ray Ban (a beautiful gift for x-mas)

Truly, one perfect gift for christmas is something you would love to have and I really hope that a friend or someone in the family would stumble to this very beautiful thing called cheap ray bans and think of me.  I love shades in general and I do have loads before I lost some and broke the other. Below are just some ray ban pictures that I love to have and would be very grateful to receive it :)

Home and thinking!

I have been in deep thoughts these past few weeks and up to the moment and mostly of whats in my thoughts are more of material concerns. There were times that I feel ashamed to God of what I'm feelin' and thinking.  It seems that due to more life concerns and less Bible meditation I seems to forget my life verse that says:


Matthew 6:33

New International Version (NIV)
33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.


I thank God for reminding me that all I need is seek Him first and all that I need will be provided whatever it may is!

Our Christmas Tree (my first ever)

Way back in my home farm days and Christmas season is coming then the houses around us puts Christmas decorations and all sorts of  Christmas related thing, and looking back at our house... there's nothing, you can't see that Christmas is coming in our home co'z grandma is sick and all my aunts are gone to the city to seek for better life and doesn't want to come back, my uncles on the other hand are gone as well working at other people's farm (my uncles would leave very early in the morning and would come home late at night drunk).

What a life back then!

Then... I promise to myself that I will never get married early as young girls in my town did. I will finish my studies and work hard to get rich (this was then my ultimate goal). I was bitter at life but still study hard. I did finished my studies but God had changed my goal and now I am happy and contented with what I have knowing the Lord will provide all my needs according to his richness in heaven.

I don't enjoy Christmas season back then... the only thing that makes it good was Christmas vacation from school and of course school Christmas parties. But now... I'm very excited about Christmas co'z I now know what's the meaning of it and whom it for.

Then... i also have my first ever Christmas tree (I know we would tell people it's for my girl, but the truth   deep inside of me is... it's for me :))

First ever... trick and treat

We went to a mall for trick and treat last Sunday. The idea was actually came from my friend who has a year old boy.  So since it was my first time to do it, I was kind of shy... so I asked hubby if he could do it instead of me. I was so glad then co'z hubby happily accepted the job and brought of not really excited girl to store for the candy gift.

My girl is turning five months old this coming twenty-second of November and yet we haven't talk to a family friend who lived in Georgia yet. We've been wanting to talk with them via skype or  conference calls with our other couple friend too but haven't done it yet time difference and busy schedules. I really do hope that before Christmas arrives our plan would come to pass so that they'll able to see our baby. :)

Well, going back with the trick or treat thing... my baby has no costume actually, she just wore her Sunday dress. She changes clothes though because she became cold after two hours of stay in the air-conditioned mall.

Plausible Deniability

I woke up very very very (just to emphasize how early was it) early this morning, at around three to fed my baby girl and did not able to sleep again no  matter how I close my eyes, my mind just brought me to places and remind me of people. So instead of meditating of what people did to me I instead open our daily bread booklet and start reading.

This is what I found today and thought I'd share:

"We may successfully fool others, but God knows our hearts." - odb


‎"The Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. -1Samuel 16:7"

Answering a media charges of scandal and impropriety, the guilty politician responded with the plea: " I have no recollection of those events." It was yet another attempt of a public figure  to apply a strategy called "plausible deniability". This is when individuals try to create a personal safety  net for themselves by seeking to convince others that they have no knowledge of the events in question. Someone else get blamed and becomes the scapegoat for the guilty person's wrong.

Sometimes Christians have their own kind of plausible deniability. We claim ignorance of our wrong behavior, rationalize, or blame others---but God knows the truth. The Bible tells us: "Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart" (1Sam. 16:7)  This is true whether the heart is pure  or it is a corrupt heart  robed in false claims of innocence.  We may fool others who see us only on the outside, but God sees the reality of our hearts---whether good or bad.

It is wise, therefore, to humbly confess our faults to the Lord. he desires that we admit the truths (Ps. 51:6). The only way to escape the sin and restore our fellowship with God is to acknowledge and confess it to Him. --Bill Crowder

Health Risk while using computers and cellphones

There was this news on television about health risk on using gadgets specially computers and cellphones. It was said that not proper sitting position while using computers could lead a person into having health problems such as back pain, this is the same thing with texting. A person needs proper sitting position while doing it.  With regards with using computers; a person should have an eye level computer that means also we should get the right table. It's actually not only about desktop, laptop, netbooks, and cellphones. Using tablet computers is also among this, the same thing with other gadgets that we frequently use everyday.

Without proper information of having a thing could always lead people to risk. So let us be informed  and help avoid the gadget health risk.

Managing my docs

Before our office moved to the new one, we were told by our boss to looked into our stuff and dispose those things that we don't need anymore. So I looked into the drawers and found a lot of papers and other stuff that I really don't need anymore but since there are emotional attachment to the thing... I instead put it in another container to keep it again. It's hard to let go of things specially when those cards and other papers came from different people that are closes to me.

Now on our new office hubby and I shared a table, good thing we have a documents compiler co'z it helped us manage our docs. A table for two people would be very messy if we don't know any document management thing-y. I'm just glad that hubby is a good table arranger that even we put our stuff at the same table it still doesn't look bad. Thanks to hubby and the documents compiler/manager.

What love means (from forward emails)





What Love means to a 4-8 year old . . ....

Slow down for three minutes to read this.  It is so worth it. Touching words from the mouth of babes. 

 
A group of professional people posed this question to a group of
4 to 8 year-olds, 'What does love mean?'

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined See what you think:
 


'When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore.
So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love.'

Rebecca- age 8


'When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.
You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.'

Billy - age 4


'Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.'

Karl - age 5


'Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.'

Chrissy - age 6


'Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.'

Terri - age 4


'Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.'

Danny - age 7


'Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more.
My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss'

Emily - age 8


'Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.'

Bobby - age 7 (Wow!)


'If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate,'

Nikka - age 6
(we need a few million more Nikka's on this planet)


'Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.'

Noelle - age 7


'Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.'

Tommy - age 6


'During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling.

He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore.'

Cindy - age 8


'My mommy loves me more than anybody
You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.'

Clare - age 6


'Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.'

Elaine-age 5


'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.'

Chris - age 7


'Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.'

Mary Ann - age 4


'I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.'

Lauren - age 4


'When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.' (what an image)

Karen - age 7


'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross.'

Mark - a ge 6


'You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.'

Jessica - age 8


And the final one 


The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,

'Nothing, I just helped him cry'


When there is nothing left but God, that is when you find out that God is all you need. Take 60 seconds and give this a shot! All you do is simply say the following small prayer for the person who sent you this.

Heavenly Father, please bless all my friends in whatever it is that You know they may be needing this day! And may their life be full of Your peace, prosperity and power as he/she seeks to have a closer relationship with You. Amen.

Then send it on to five other people, including the one who sent it to you. Within hours you caused a multitude of people to pray for other people. Then sit back and watch the power of God work in your life.

P. S. Five is good, but more is
better.

...still not feeling well :(

It's almost three days now that I'm feeling this way... not feeling good! :(
What I worry about though is... tomorrow is my "inaanak" b-day and christening day, it's no excuse being sick not to be there. Plus... this would be my Z's first birthday to attend, and she is all set. Yet.. it would be no fun as well if we all (as a family) feel ill.
 I am excited for my baby Z and for Kobe b-day tomorrow!
Hope everything will be all right.

My Ballerina baby

My lovely daughter turns three (3 months old) yesterday, and since it was her special day I decided to put on a dress on her instead of just plain day-to-day clothes. Her aunts like it so much co'z she looks like a little lady on a dress like that, and of course I feel proud.  She actually look like a ballerina there specially with arms  stretched out and leaping feet. 

In the future though, when she will enter secondary school and will have her prom, as a mom I would like my daughter to look wear a  TJFormal Jovani prom dresses  and look absolutely stunning just like the one in the picture below.

Brain-storming with hubby

Yeah... hubby and I been in long discussion about going to the city frequently. We've been doing a brainstorming thingy if we really need to go or if we can wait for a little longer. We are actually torn in two... between expenses and missing friends. The truth is... visiting Makati is really expensive for us this time co'z we can't afford to take the risk and travel our baby with public transportation in fear that she might get sick. So what we always do is borrow a car suffer paying the ever uprising amount of gas and toll fees.

I really am praying for an own car this time. I really feel that this is high time for us to have a car. It doesn't matter to me if we have to pay  for an insurances like rv insurance, as long as we have our own, so hubby don't have to go ahead and find a car then come home to get us and after bringing us back home he will bring back the car again. Just imagine the hassle it gave us and not to mention the expenses that is enclosed with it.

...and on the first of the following month... our family might not be able to share a meal with friends :'(.

A post in the past

Later today... hubby and I will go somewhere to buy some stuff for our baby and also to have a time for ourselves.... no Ziah to look after to... it's definitely just us.

I miss riding the motorbike with hubby. I miss going to places with hubby. I miss doing things  with hubby... and tomorrow will be our time. Tita B-gel or lola will look after baby Z for us for an hour or two I think. We will probably bring home food for them so that they won't prepare food for dinner anymore.

It's really a big blessing to have my in-laws just around the corner with time like this because it's easy to ask for help when we needed someone to babysit our little girl. :)

My dream eternity ring :)


It was so sweet of hubby to think of giving me a special supposed to be surprise gift, but somehow I figure it out and it is no longer a surprise gift this time. Thinking that its no longer a surprise makes hubby a little disappointed. But its better that way that feeling disappointed after giving it to me since I don't like the design of the ring or whatever... just like our engagement ring that really looks like just any day to day ordinary ring. I'm not picky or something, what I only want is I like the thing I put on.

I told hubby that if he wants to buy me an eternity ring as a gift for Christmas.. he should look online to get some idea of what it really look like and not only assume that it looks  like the way he thought of it.

So in looking online.. these are what I got :) (picture from the net)

Thanking God for my friendship

I am so grateful that God has me in Him mind even before the world begun. I'm so thankful that He desire what's best for me and nothing more. I am writing this because I feel so blessed having my girlies friendship, without them life would never be exciting as this. Friends are friends (it may be don't last forever as some friendship ends in part-ways) but still... friends and friendships are like wines... its gets better as it gets older.

I'm here at my church mission center.. and will stay here till Monday. To tell you... nothing really special happens to me and them... but as I think of them, I have nothing in my heart but gratefulness. I wish I could give them ladies teddies as a token our of friendship, though it won't do anything big but still... it could make them feel good. It would be good I think that we all have one and host a "teddies party" just us girls. Lol!

Hoodies

The first time I wore a hoody was five years ago. Yeah... it was not even mine, I borrowed it from my friend... and eventually she gave it to me, but a year ago I gave it away as well.  It was a pretty pink with a silvery dash. From then on I come to love hoodies but I keep from buying it because I don't know when I can use it here in the Manila. It's always warm and humid here,  and wearing a hoody would be a big mistake.

I have to admit though that I have a few of it in my closet for an out of the country trip or a trip somewhere where its colder. I even wish I'm slimmer so womens hoodies will fit on me just like the way I want it.

If there's side effects, there's treatment as well (hair transplant side effect)

Beauty products are everywhere. It's never be a problem to get the beauty you want  from the top of your head right down to the sole of your toes and from your skin to your internals. Anyone could create/invent a beaut y product and give it to the public to try. Yet, we consumers should be very careful in using such beauty products because the beauty that we are dreaming of might turn into an ugly nightmare.

I myself has hair problems because my hair got frizzy and kinky when not treated well. I visit the salon more often to get my hair done.  Good thing actually kinky hair is my only problem unlike a friend of mine who suffer hair loss and her hair got thinner now. We are actually worried about it because we don't want to see our friend having a hair transplant and suffer its hair transplant side effects after.  No matter how good and effective they say it maybe, still nothing compares to the natural one. We must take good care of our hair.

Well, if we somehow suffer the side effects, we could always get or buy a medication, it maybe prescribed or just over the counter medication it doesn't matter anymore as long as there's a treat with the side effects.
Side effects such as; headache, minimal bleeding, numbness, thinning of pre-existing hair, swelling in the forehead and eyes area, and itchy scalp.

Shaving Tips and more

Lifestyle is change now after this two months old baby came to our life and changes everything. I do not worry about at least smoothing myself up because kissing my wife with an unshaved moustache is never been an issue with her.  Sometimes I don’t even notice that since I forgot  to shave I look like a different  person until someone like my mom would tell to clean myself up, not that I am dirty or something, it’s just all about my beardy.

Now that we have our baby life changes.. in a good way. I need to shave every other day so that I can kiss my girl. And though I don’t feel like doing it, but I need to if I want my face close to her. Ooh.. babies has this unintentional power to manipulate and hypnotized their parents and I think even the toughest person on this earth will be soften with babies charms.

Here are some tips though in having a soft clean after shave:
·         Choosing a good razor is one factor to have a good shave. A good shaver can make a perfect shave.
·         Applying a shaving cream before and after shave could also help make a perfect shave.
·         Make sure that you always wet your face (for males) and legs (for women) to prevent  skin irritation.
·         Choose also a good shaving brush. You used use a shaving brush to spread the cream rather using your finger.
·         You can apply a pre-shave oil  as well. It soften the beard for shaving.
·         Use a face scrub or  shaving soap when you don’t feel like using a cream, but don’t shave with none of either of the two.

Massage and Spa's

Hubby and I with our little Z stayed at our church mission center waiting for our baby's vaccine day. We went earlier so that we could still hang out with friends and do other need-to-do things. Actually during our stay we were able to visit a mall and avail an "eat all you can" buffet or something like that (I actually don't know what it's called) and I was able to get my hair re-bonding done on the following day. What amazes me the most was... the next day because it was indeed a surprise. My friend has another friend who do massaging and is professional kind of, her friend came to teach her how to do it. So since my friend needs someone to do her massaging... I then became her model. It was more than an hour treat to my body, I was relaxed and very happy.

Actually, going to a spa salon is indeed an enormous treat specially to moms like me and to my working friends. If I could only afford to buy a hot tub at swim spa manufacturer in a cheaper price so that I don't have to go somewhere just to do this thing I probably have gotten one, specially that this is much better done at home. Nothing compares to a Swedish body massage and a hot bath in a bath tub.

Looking for a global jobs?

Been working at home since 2008. What I actually mean is having an online job since the said year. This online jobs helped me a lot in means of extra cash. It's really hard not to work for money this time that almost the price of every commodities goes up  especially the basic (e.g. food, clothing, shelter and gas/transportation).

The sad thing about this not good situation of this global crisis is... "high price commodities-less employment". In fact, we have promising newly graduates that are able to do great if they only get the opportunity to be accepted in a company. Yet, it may sad to say that the competition to get  hired for a good high paying job this time is almost a hundred to one.

I am grateful that I have this kind of job (though minimal income) but helps a lot specially with a "at home working mom" like me. It really helps pay the bills at the end of the month.

However, even though getting a good job is like finding a needle in the middle of a rubble, still we can get a good find if we only strive harder and not give, because there are good offers out there that are waiting to get filled just like automotive design jobs that operates globally.  All we really need to do is search and apply. We should not lose  hope because life is good still.

1 Peter 3:8-14 (NIV)


1Pe 3:8  Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.
1Pe 3:9  Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.
1Pe 3:10  For, "Whoever would love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech.
1Pe 3:11  He must turn from evil and do good; he must seek peace and pursue it.
1Pe 3:12  For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."
1Pe 3:13  Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good?
1Pe 3:14  But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened."

Me today Lord..


This is my prayer and my song today!

Ocean will part (Hillsong United)

If my heart has grown cold
There Your love will unfold
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand
When I'm blind to my way
There Your Spirit will pray
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand

Oceans will part nations come
At the whisper of Your call
Hope will rise glory shown
In my life Your will be done

Present suffering may pass
Lord Your mercy will last
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand
And my heart will find praise
I'll delight in Your way
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand
As You open my eyes to the work of Your hand

Four Hours Sleep Today

I slept near twelve midnight last night and woke up at three am today and did not give any sleep at all because my baby is awake as well. I tried to do some online work but the baby just don't make me work at peace... she kept on calling me trough her crying/whining. So there's nothing I can do but stop my work and attends my baby's needs.

Friends actually told me that for sure I'm going to lost weight because of sleeplessness and tiredness. But to the contrary I don't, and in fact I feel I'm getting heavier. I just hope though that I don't have a pcos sickness. My weight plus is due to not proper eating probably and too much coffee (my coffee has much sugar and cream), I also ate more these days.. more rice and more of sweets.


I just hope and pray that these eating habit of mine won't lead me to taking diet pills cause pretty much tight in budget now, but I would be reading diet pill reviews if I have time to make me informed about  the pros and cons of diet pills.

She's two mos. and a day :)

A baby will make love stronger, 
 days shorter, 
nights longer,
 bankroll smaller,
 home happier,
 clothes shabbier,
 the past forgotten,
and the future worth living for.

Almost no post :(

Got so busy everyday these past few days and to update my blogs is almost impossible.

My little Ziah keeps my whole day since the day the Lord brought her to us. Times seems not enough to do all the things I usually does.  I used to have spare times, time to take a rest and be a couch potato sometimes, face my computer from morning till midnight, go anywhere I want and do anything I want. But this time all those are... probably not gone but are set aside since we have now a priority.

If you have to ask me if I miss those times?: my answer is not that much because the joy my baby gives replaces all hardship, sleeplessness, tiredness and other self-centered things. One thing I misses though is... my friends specially my inner circle friends but still Ziah is worth the sacrifice.

The lights are turned off, the house is quiet... daddy and Ziah are both sound asleep... but as I lay in bed I could not sleep.... so what I did was get up turn my netbook on and then... here I am writing my thoughts in here.

...is playing while the baby is sleeping

The work is done: laundry, dishes and other things that needs to be done while the baby is asleep is all good. So it's time to turn on my computer and see what's on facebook for me and do some blogging as well. And since I still have ample time... I played online games just the way I did before. This is fun and I love to be a mom! I have my baby and can still do the things I love to do.

How I wish hubby could do the same as well, specially that he was the one who did our laundry this morning. But unfortunately he needs to go to the office to do some stuff. I just wish that he will be able to get an xbox live subscription so that he can play xbox when there's is nothing for him to do as a treat to all his hard work.

Just Got My ZIAH baby

I got my baby Tuesday last week and I have this unexplained feelings (mixed emotions about everything).

It was third week of June when my aunt told me that my cousin is having a baby and she is giving it away. I said was interested but was surprised because they did not give it to me but later on I also found out that  they already have someone  to give the baby to. I did not bother to asked or do anything because I know that if the baby is for me then God will give it to me somehow no matter what happen.

Then... after a month and several days my aunt sent me a message telling if I'm still interested with the baby but this time I was thinking .."should I get her or not" but as hubby and I prayed about it.. the Lord give us peace and we both agreed that we will get the baby.

The baby came... I really don't anything when I saw the baby... because I was more concerned about my cousin and her life.  So instead of talking about the baby... I ended scolding and preaching my cousin. I got the baby from them at Cash and Carry Mall... not even inside the mall actually but outside under the tree there.

I did not see any emotional thing coming from the baby's mom (though I know that deep inside her is a voice shouting I love my baby... and I wan't her good life!) when she give me her baby.  All she said... "take her... I will not get her from you ever... she's yours!

The first time I hold the baby in my arms is one life defining moment. Such a tiny precious in my arms begging me to love her. I love her more when my I saw my friends loving her as well. They support our decisions and even give their hearts and time to Ziah.

Now all I wish that I can buy my baby a life insurance at http://www.wholesaleinsurance.net to secure my baby's future. And since I can't I just leave it all to God who brought this tiny precious to us!

Crazy Thinking

I was at a nearby supermarket the other day. Shopping for food is one of my most exciting thing to do but not for hubby. It never excites hubby... because he doesn't want to pay all  the goodies I brought to the counter. I am the money spender while hubby is the keeper (what a match ey! :).

But actually I have this weird feeling that... what if the cashier would make a mistake and enter the price twice (because I sometimes saw them having trouble with the machine) and made me pay more than what I get? So what I do is attentively watched them as they scan the code with the  barcode scanner. This machine really helps the queue get smaller and makes the payment process quick and easy.

Still Up!

It's two minutes before twelve in the morning but still up probably because of too much coffee intake today. Hubby is kind of worried about me actually, but thank God I still feel good though I  have drunk too much caffeine. And since I cannot bring myself to sleep I'm now writing this post.

As I think of things to post in here, a printer comes to my mind and I can't believe that we have one laptop and a toshiba notebook and yet we don't have any printer to print documents. And what we usually do is do it in the office or  asked friends to print it for us. So now I am thinking why don't we get one, something that has a hydraulic cartridge maybe or just something simple and cheap. I don't know all actually and I am undecided too but all I know now is that we should have to get one specially that we have these gadgets.

Happy to Serve

Hubby and I visited a friend who in spite of his physical hindrances manage to still serve the Lord.  Some years ago he was diagnosed with diabetes but just few months ago he was rushed to the hospital and was declared dead for several minutes, but God did a miracle and revived him. He is now still alive a kicken' and in fact very enthusiastic to serve the Lord who give him another chance to live.

Since he learned that we live close to them, he insisted that we should visit their place every now and then. He also encourages us to help serve in the church because they really need workers. So since hubby and I are both trained to do and lead church ministries we somehow agreed to support them, and we are excited to do the thing.

So we went home happy and excited for this new opportunity to serve HIM.
 Hubby was thinking out loud and told me this; "mahal, ganito talaga tayo anu?, excited sa mga trabahong walang sweldo!" Of course I laughed out loud.

God knows our needs and I am hundred percent sure that He will provide!

Bed Bugs

I was helping a friend kill bedbugs on their beds and floors. I was interested in doing so because I got my share of feeding them unintentional (what I mean is: they bit me too, and it was not a good one), so I'm taking my revenge.  We actually used a kerosene to kill it, others died but the rest just try to play dead when we sprayed the chemical and some just simply hid themselves.

So.. I got a researched about bedbugs and  how to get rid of them:

what is bedbug(s):
Cimicidae or bed bugs (sometimes bedbugs), are small parasitic insects. The most common type is Cimex lectularius.[2] The term usually refers to species that prefer to feed on human blood. All insects in this family live by feeding exclusively on the blood of warm-blooded animals. source:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bed_bug

                                

life span of a bedbug:
Finding bed bugs in your home has nothing to do with poor hygiene! It takes only one bed bug to hitch a ride on your clothing (furniture, suitcase, etc) and infest your residence. What's worse is that they can live up to one year without drinking a drop of your blood. Feeding takes about 10 to 15 minutes for adults and less for the nymphs; they feed about every three days. Depending on the conditions, bed bug nymphs can survive for months without feeding. source:http://www.badbedbugs.com/

no-chemical treatment:

  • Vacuuming. A thorough vacuuming of cracks and crevices can physically remove bedbugs from an area. But vacuum cleaners can't reach all hiding places.
  • Hot water. Washing clothes and other items in water at least 120 F (49 C) can kill bedbugs.
  • Clothes dryer. Placing wet or dry items in a clothes dryer set at medium to high heat for 20 minutes will kill bedbugs and their eggs.
  • Enclosed vehicle. If it's summer, you can bag up infested items and leave them in a car parked in the sun with the windows rolled up for a day. The target temperature is at least 120 F (49 C).
  • Freezing. Bedbugs are also vulnerable to temperatures below 32 F (0 C) but you'd need to leave the items outdoors or in the freezer for several days. source:http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/bedbugs/DS00663/DSECTION=treatments-and-drugs

for a chemical treat please inquire the nearest pest control in your area.
