It's a Funhotsummer

My cousin Mica had a hosting gig last Sunday at SM Annex and we tagged along. It was an event for Sunsilk and their guest was Gerald Anderson. This is actually a series of events to be held at all SM malls. Ther first one was at SM Megamall with Jericho Rosales as guest. Next I heard is going to be probably with DingDong Dantes.

It was a fun time with the family and the cousins. Of course, cute Bindi was there too and I had a great time playing with her. She had the time of her life looking at the different colored light bulbs by the stage.

Ricky Hatton is Bisaya

This is just sooo funny!

Im watching the Pacquiao-Hatton match with my dad and uncle as usual. Im thinking Pacquiao might win but i also would want for Hatton to win. I heard that the Pacquiao team had personalized logo water bottles made for the match. That's going to be interesting to see. I wonder if manny's mom is going to watch the game live. It would be amusing to watch her.

Long Weekend

Another long weekend, but not for me who works for a company that follow's Australian holiday. I don't really mind working tomorrow though as I'ld only have to work 4 hours and then Im off to start my weekend. We are meeting up with relatives from my dad's side who are in the country right now for vacation. My cousin's and I are also planning to go swimming on saturday. Nothing definite yet but if this does not push through, that gives me time to look for the home alarm system my Aunt in Bacolod wants me to buy for her.

Enjoy the long weekend and don't let the rains stop you from doing whatever you have planned for this weekend.

I Knew It....

I knew that Matt was to be eliminated today. He should have been eliminated weeks ago, but thanks to the judges save--he was given 2 more weeks. The shocker today was that Adam was part of the bottom 3 and was even in the bottom 2. My analysis is that the Anoop votes got split between Gokey and Chris. Adam style is different...different in a good way. The `Lil votes all went to Allison, that's why she was immediately on the safe side with Gokey. If it was Adam who was voted out this week, portable AED's would have been put to good use as it would have been a real shocker to Adam fans.

Next week would surely be exciting. With only 4 contestants left, the competition is getting exciting. Of the four, it's only Gokey who has not been part of the bottom group. Really shows he has a very good chance of winning the competition especially if it's not going to be a Danny-Adam finals. 3 weeks left to the Finale!

Looking at this pictures I took of our short stay at Shangri-La Mactan makes me want to go on vacation again.
We do have another vacation lined up. I have purchased the tickets already and have made hotel arrangements for destination #2. We got our hotel for free as my cousin gave me GC's. Bee is to take care of booking the hotel for destination #1. I can't wait for our vacation! Before I go on vacation, I have to make sure I have everything at work done and atleast make a lot of progress with my review. If i could only finish reading up on mesothelioma over the weekend. Atleast with everything I have to do, I get to look forward to something.

Anoop No More

I still think it should have been Matt to leave AI not Anoop. I know Anoop does not stand a chance of winning American Idol and so does Matt. My top two would be Danny and Adam. A career is waiting for both of them for sure. Im just pissed that the judges used the "save" on Matt. My guess is that next week, Matt is leaving. I hope he does. Seeing him on the show irritates me. I don't know why but Im just irritated with how he looks. He looks like the rv salesman we met a month ago. No offense to the Matt Giraud fans, I really just want him OUT!

Go Danny! Go Adam!

Patrick Swayze

Can't help but feel super sad upon seeing this picture of Patrick Swayze. You could definitely see how Pancreatic Cancer has affected him. One would think he is drinking diet pill but he is not. All the weight loss has been caused by his illness. Not only did he lose a lot of weight but his look older too. I remember him most with his movie "Ghost" with Demi Moore. I hope he wins his battle against the Big C.

Gift for Bindi

I have to start making a list of possible gifts for Bindi. In a few months time she'll be turning 1 already. I have yet to ask my cousin (Bindi's mom) on what she needs but I was thinking of maybe getting her a walker but my mom said she might only get to use it for a week tops a month and then she won't be needing it anymore. For all we know, she might be walking already when she turns 1 and my gift would not be useful anymore. What would a 1 year old girl need? She has tons of clothes already, some she only got to use once as she is getting bigger and bigger (not to mention cuter) everyday. Everyone is just crazy about this little girl, especially my uncle and aunty. I agree with what most people say that the grandparents are spoilers, teehee. So, any suggestions on what I should get for Bindi? I still have 5 months to think about it.


This stuff is just addictingly good. I have been eating this since yesterday, ayayay! Warming it up in the microwave for a few minutes makes it even more delicious. Can't get enough of it. I should really stop buying all this and all the other junk food I buy. Maybe I should even stop going to S&R because every time we go there, we end up buying food that is making me gain weight.


After weeks of waiting, 3 if I remember it correctly their will be new episodes of Gossip Girl (currently downloading) and Grey's Anatomy this week. For some reason, I have been downloading a lot of movies, series and audiobooks again. Im excited the most for Grey's Anatomy and on what will happen to Izzie. McDreamy is not a Mcdreamy for me anymore. He looks so old already. It's about time they add a new character that might spice up the show a bit.

how to lose weight?

ugh! i have been gaining weight and i can't stop eating (esp red mango fro-yo!) and drinking cold drinks. i need to lose all the weight i have gained the past 2 months as i am off to another vacation in 2 months.

i always tell myself i won't eat that much or i will lessen my food intake but just a minute ago i ate 2 pieces of keebler soft batch cookies and a glass of chocolate milk. I still have popcorn and pringles waiting to be eaten. i eat too much junk i know and if i don't stop i might end up needing lipo 6 black. Any suggestions on diets that has worked for you? I can't do the no rice diet as I end up with very bad memory everytime i skip rice and with me reviewing, i can't go on a no carb diet. help!

Holy Week 2009

For 2007 & 2008, we went to Baguio for the Holy Week. For this year, we didn't want to go to Baguio anymore and wanted to go somewhere nearer for the long weekend. Unfortunately, all the resorts I called were already booked but my friend from high school can accommodate us for an overnight stay. Since it was only in Bataan, we decided to go even if it was just an overnight trip. We left Manila at around 7am of Sept 11.

On our way back to manila the following day, we of course went to Subic for some shopping. My cousin-in-law wanted to go to Tagaytay for that weekend because he had to look for horse supplies but everyone wanted to go to the beach so Bataan was the perfect place to go too.

Short vacation but super fun!

Crazy Monday

Monday is always a busy day. So many things to do, so little time. Since I started working again, i started hating Monday's. Just a busy day! Had to make a lot of calls today but still ended up not finding the Accountant that we need. Sigh, i hope to find someone by tomorrow. Other than work, i have also started my online review for the NCLEX. It's hard to be studying again after not doing so for more than a year so i do hope to find my groove back--soon i hope.

It's a good thing I was able to send the pictures of the patio furniture my Uncle wants to buy for their house in dumaguete. I should have sent that last week and i totally forgot.

I hope tomorrow is going to be a better day.

Jeweler and Magic Jack

Anyone of you who knows a good jeweler? I have been looking and searching online for jewelers as I need a ring resized and cleaned. I have had that ring for a long time but have not worn it for a very long time since it's too big for me. My mom has a jeweler but she migrated to the US already. I have been looking for one for so long now and Im quite desperate already so if you know one, let me know.

I bought a magic jack from mem 3 months ago and im loving it. I get to talk to family and friends in the US and Canada anytime I want without thinking of the cost of calling overseas. So far, i have had no problems with my MJ. All is good and it has been fun calling up relatives. They have all asked if I have moved to the US already as I have been assigned a US number too. So fun to be talking and talking and talking! Teehee.

Quiet Manila

For the first time after a very long time, We are staying home for Holy Week. Technically, we are going out-of-town on saturday but we usually leave holy thursday. For this year, all the resorts i called are already booked. I thought establishments would be close for the day but groceries and restaurants are open. I think in a few more years even the malls would be open too. It's nice to be staying home though watching TV, cooking, spending sometime online and reading.


Last week was a 5 day sale at S&R. It was the perfect time to shop and buy junk food for our out of town trip this coming Saturday. Going to the grocery is always super fun and relaxing. I found a lot of goodies for sale and got to buy mini pringles, cheetos, chocolates, and juices. For someone who is trying to lose weight all the junk I bought is definitely bad food. Here are some pictures I took...


A friend is planning for their wedding next month in Boracay. Planning for a wedding alone is tedious and stressful (but absolutely fun) and having to plan a destination wedding is double the stress i assume.

If I was to have a destination wedding, i'ld have a Cancun Destination Wedding. Only the best for me and my bee of course. A nice, romantic and a vacation filled wedding not only for us but also for our guests. I always watch Destination Weddings on cable TV and one of the best features was that wedding in Cancun. It was indeed a dream come true for the couple.


reasons i heart torrent:

1. I now have audiobook copies of the shopaholic series.

2. I get to watch the new season of hell's kitchen.

3. Other than hell's kitchen, i get my weekly dose of gossip girl.

4. Not to forget is Grey's Anatomy.

5. I get to watch the movies i missed without buying DVD's.

6. Saves me money.

7. I get good materials for the NCLEX review too.

8. Did i already mention it's free?

American Idol

I am an American Idol fan. Love it!

This season, im hoping that either Danny Gokey or Adam Lambert wins.

To be honest Im an Anoop fan too.

It was sad to see Scott go but I was pretty sure he was not going to make it to the finals.

`Lil is next to go. Used to like her going to the top 13 but she has become pretty boring.

Allison though is really talented but im annoyed of the red hair...just me, ok.

Matt and Kris are to go after `Lil and probably Anoop.

Talking about AI...the two David's of last season are having a concert. I want to watch!

IL Terrazzo

If you live in Quezon City and you've tried all the restaurants in Trinoma, I suggest you head to IL Terrazzo in Tomas Morato (in front of Burgoo and near ABSCBN). Their are about 8-10 restaurants you can try including Omakase (really good Japanese restaurant), Banapple, Aresi (it's back!), 8 spices and Pink Pepper. At the basement is Rustan's grocery. They have a basement parking that uses car lifts. We hope to try all the restaurants soon. Im just glad that Banapple is now near where i live and that Aresi is back.
