Charice Pempengco Wows The World

I really cant stop watching this video of charice pempengco- a 15 year old kid from Philippines who sings excellent at star king show in Korea. The audience were strucked of her wonderful voice and the way she performs at the stage was amazing. She got standing ovation.
She almost makes my hubby wept. I just cant believed why she never win the Little Big Star Contest. I'm sure she will be more successful now that she was featured by Ellen Show, Paul O Grady Show and E's Daily 10. She got a lot of offer from recording company abroad. Im proud of her being a filipina. Keep it up pinoy...

Daily Christian Wisdom

Rest. Rest. Rest in God's love. The only work you are
required now to do is to give your most intense attention
to his still, small voice within.

Galco Holster

Just recently, my hubby was planning to purchase a belt holster for his gun. He was working par time as security officer in an establishment and needed it so badly. Thankfully, through my constant research on net. I was able to find a Galco website known as original leather company where they sell various types of holster constructed of horsehide. It amazed me so much how they were able to continue their business for many years due to their excellent products and creative styles. The time my hubby saw it, he never hesitate to buy his choice for he like it so much. It was made from premium saddle leather, ballistic nylon and of course horsehide the way he like it to be. He want it simple but with higher quality which is really the best. At least, i made my hubby happy for he no longer walked inside the mall looking for holster making him easily exhausted. We are only saving money for transportation but we also have a free cup from them.

An exhausted day...

My hubby's boss asked me again to make some organization of his office and shop. Of course, i was glad- i will able to earn money again and not left here alone. Its better for me to get sweat than sitting my ass doing nothing. I feel useless and unproductive doing nothing. Our boss was so nice to us and told me that liked my work. I told him i was so thankful for his kindness & his help for us giving me time to work just for to earn and not get bored at home. I adore him for being workaholic despite all wealth he got. He never gets tired and keep on toiling more money from his business. I figured out how could he was not getting weary for working all day. No wonder he is getting more richer every day. But anyway, though i like working- i still feel exhausted. As a matter of fact i feel asleep for doing my task today. lol! Perhaps, i get easily tired for not working long months now. I better keep moving huh.... Plus, i got email from my boss before - a bad news that makes me more stressed. Oh why for many days, i will received such bad news today where i wanted some peace of mind. I just don't want to think about it now. It make me sick... I just cant even reply for my boss now. I don't know what to say- I'm totally speechless. My mind is not working that good and need to relax. I'm just wondering why all this undesirable challenges never stopped. I've dealt so many hard times in my life - i just cant take it no more. I'm feeling more crap each day thinking problems from my family and now with my recent boss. Oh please help me God- give me some rest for awhile. Please give me harmony for me to solved my problems. I'm kinda restless & hopeless now... hayyyyyyyyyyyyy what ta life...

Why i signed up PayPerPost

I'ved heard PayPerPost blogging from friends online. At first, i was little bit hesitant how true it is paying you from $5 to $200 every time you post products from advertisers through blogging. Until, my friend showed me how much she earn from PayPerPost just posting what she thinks of the products. The time i saw her earn money, i became more curious and anxious to earn my own money too. I waited for months updating my blogs just to join PayPerPost. Thankfully, I got an email today that my blog has been approved. I immediately grab my first opportunity as a new blogger/postie. I been reading from posties and friends how amazing PayPerPost give them grab more opportunities from various products and businesses. I have the eagerness to expressed what i'ved thought and feel, PayPerPost is a great help for me to be more developed in expressing such new ideas. PayPerPost Blogging not only help me meet new people from different races and traditions but make me more productive as well. It does not only help posties earn money for diverse opportunities as a bridge connecting paying advertisers with bloggers for hire.Its also among Through constant research, i'ved found out PayPerPost was among the good paid blogging network and positive feed backs. It does pays posties from $ 5 to $200 per post completed and approved. Payperpost also help drive traffic to your blogs for its tremendous users and bloggers from around the world. I cant wait to work for more opportunities from PayPerPost. The first thing, i will do for all the money i would earned will be for my family. Hopefully, i could grab more opportunities for me to help them and help my hubby for our monthly bills. I would possibly influence my friends who never know PayPerPost to try and join PayPerPost blogging. How would it help you earn money and meet more friends.

While shopping at Sam's Club

I'll share this true stories send to me by my father in law to all the mothers who have little kids shopping in malls. Maybe this could give us ideas on how to avoid our kids from respective predators.

>Wanted to share something that happened today while shopping at Sam's Club. A mother was leaning over looking for meat and turned around to find her 4 yr. old daughter was missing. I was standing there right beside her, and she was calling her daughter with no luck.>

> I asked a man who worked at Sam's to announce it over the loud speaker for Katie. He did, and let me say he immediately walked right past me when I asked and went to a pole where there was a phone. He made an announcement for all the doors and gates to be locked, a code something.>

> So they locked all the doors at once. This took all of 3 minutes after Iasked the guy to do this. They found the little girl 5 minutes later in a bathroom stall. Her head was half shaved, and she was dressed in her underwearwith a bag of clothes, a razor, and wig sitting on the floor beside her to make her look different.>

> Whoever this person was, took the little girl, brought her into the bathroom, shaved half her head, and undressed her in a matter of less than 10minutes. This makes me shake to no end. Please keep a close eye on your kids when in big places where it's easy for you to get separated.>

> It only took a few minutes to do all of that-another 5 minutes and she would have been out the door. I am still in shock that some sick person could do this, let alone in a matter of minutes. The days are over when our little ones could run rampant all over the place and nothing would happen to them.>

> The little girl is fine. Thank God for fast workers who didn't take any chances.>


> HOW SICK PEOPLE ARE OUT THERE!!! (This happened at the Sam's WholesaleClub in Omaha, Nebraska.)>

> >This message has been added to the story above:>>

I received this e-mail from one of my friends today. Let me first tell you that I work at the Sam's club in Lincoln,NE. The code that was spoken of is called a 'Code Adam'. It is named after John Walsh's (host of Americas MostWanted) son Adam who was kidnapped and murdered many years ago. It is used in all Sam's Clubs, Wal-marts, and Wal-mart super centers to locate lost children.>

>This is how it works. If by some means you have been separated with your child tell the nearest employee! The employee will page a 'Code Adam' (missing childin the store) over the intercom system followed by a description of the child(height, weight, hair color, age, name etc).>

>When that page goes out all the exits are immediately guarded, and/or locked in some cases, also every employee will stop whatever they are doing no matter what it is and help look for the missing child. This will continue until the child is found.>

>If the child is not found within a reasonable time then the police are notified and the store will conduct an isle by isle search. So if ever you are separated from your child now you know what to do. >>

>Missing children pictures hang by the exits of all Wal-mart and Sam's Clubstores, please take a few minutes to look these over as you leave, you just might have seen one of the children on them and you might be the one to givetheir parents hope and give the police a new lead in finding them.>

>Even if you do not have little kids, pass this one on to everyone you can think of. You never know who you might save by sending this email!>Please take the time and forward this to any friend who has children &grandchildren!

An email from hubby's dad

God Created Michigan The Creation of Michigan Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael the archangel found him, resting on the seventh day. He inquired of God, 'Where have you been?' God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, 'Look Michael, look what I've made.' Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, 'What is it?' 'It's a planet,' re plied God, 'and I've put Life on it. I'm going to call It Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance' 'Balance?', inquired Michael, still confused. God explained, pointing to different parts of earth, 'For example, Northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth while southern Europe is going to be poor; the Middle East over there will be a hot spot. Over here I've placed a continent of white people and over there is a continent of black people,' God continued, pointing to different countries 'This one will be extremely hot and arid while this one will be very cold and covered in ice.' The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a large land mass and said, 'What's that one?' 'Ah,' said God. 'That's Michigan, the most glorious place on earth. You'll notice that it is made in the fashion of my hand, the Hand of God. There are beautiful lakes, rivers, sunsets and rolling hills. The people from Michigan are going to be modest, intelligent and humorous and they are going to be found traveling the world. They will be extremely sociable, hard working and high achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace.' Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, 'What about balance, God?' 'You said there would be balance!' God re plied wisely, 'Wait until you see the idiots I'm putting around Them in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Canada.'
Hi this is an email from hubby's dad and just post this one for fun and make me laugh. No offense intented with this post hope u bear with me guys. thanks...
Have a nice weekend....

The story of flicka- the mustang horse

Yesterday, my hubby and i were watching a movie entitled " Flicka". The story really captures my heart, its one of the interesting movie I've ever seen. " Flicka" is a mustangs horse who was one of the main character of this movie. Mustangs often referred to as wild horses, since all free roaming horses in America descended from horses that were originally domesticated, the more correct term is feral horses. This story is all about a young girl who feel compassion to flicka even with its untamed behavior showed to them. Flicka was isolated from all domesticated horses due to its unpredictable actions. Since, flicka would creates risk not only for them but for the horses as well if combined together- her father decided that flicka should be sold. But, the young girl find various ways how to make flicka tame. She finds it working- she was able to ride flicka. Until one day, when she tried flicka to drive and released her outside- flicka became more wild. She was hurt and thrown and kick by flicker. Her father got upset for she was so stubborn and never followed his advise not to get closer with flicka. Even the hardest things and bruise she got, she still loved flicka. She told his father how sorry she was not able to understand her. That flicka's behavior was related to what her character's all about- thats why she feel pity & become closed to flicka. But, her father insisted that flicka is wild and could hurt her no matter what. The next morning, her father sold flicka to another ranch. I was really crying when the girl chased the vehicle where flicka has placed. She was very disappointed with her father for selling flicka. Then one day, while hearing some news for rodeo event and flicka were among the horses to be used. The girl together with her brother decided to join the event. She pretend to be a real man by wearing mustache and man's attire. When its their turn for rodeo riding, flicka was very wild. But not a long time, she was able to ride flicka and make her tame. She flew away with flicka not knowing where they headed. They were lost in the wilderness where unknowingly a risks awaits. Flicka sensed dangers that makes her wilder and thrown the girl into the ground. Flicka saved her life from a cougar whose above the trees waiting for victims. Unfortunately, flicka was bitten by that lion just to make the cougar gets her attentions not the girl. But, the girl courageously makes the cougar frightened and let it go away from flicka as its food. She immediately flew going to flicka for support and touch. Being in the state of bleeding wounds- she should make flicka feels how she cared for her and thankful for saving her life. All her family including friends looked for her. Finally, they were able to locate her beside with flicka's aching body. When they found her, she was very sick because of remarkable exhaustion and rains. Her family feel sorry for what had happened especially her father. He regretted the time he never understands her daughter. He went to flicka to see if she can still endure the pains and wounds. Though, it would be impossible for flicka to lived. Thankfully, flicka was able to survived. The first thing, the girl asked for when she awakes was flicka. She wanted to see her friend that saved her life. She thought flicka was already dead. But, her father assured her that flicka was alive. She rushed to the ranch where flicka was located and hug her. They gathered & hugged together while at this scene- forgiving for each everyone faults. It really captured my heart and never forgets this story. It does not only touched the tough heart of a person but also give us lesson on how to accept and love the animals that we think unable to loved back. Hope this story will give each of us good lesson and kept in our hearts the values of love and forgiveness not only in our family, with people but with animals as well.

But, when i tasted the spaghetti we ordered- my gosh! want to throw out. I doesn't like the taste, its different of what i used to. I been experimenting a couple times cooking my own style of spaghetti with various sauces. Its still the same - its sour & yucky. I end up wasting it through the garbage. Thankfully, at last, i was able to find a right taste and flavor for me. My hubby likes it too. yeheeeeeeeeey! It made me smile if my hubby compliment the food i prepared. Its not only wasting but saving as well for the next day meal.

Here's my ingredients i used for my own style recipe:

1 lb of ground beef

1/2 the package of pasta u want

24 oz. bottle of Newman's own fire roasted tomato & garlic

a clove of garlic

half onion


1. Just cook the pasta as directed.

2. Cook the ground beef until brown.

4. Put paprika & Cajun seasoning

5. Sauteed the onion & garlic together the ground beef.

6. Mix the cooked pasta & sauce to the ground beef.

7. Sprinkle with a lot of cheese until it melted.

A day to shop

I was really happy yesterday when my hubby and i got to shop again. Its been many days, we never went to mall. I'm really tedious all day long at the house while my hubby was working. Its kinda boring life! Need to breathe fresh air outside the! If not only with that tip he got from a customer the other day, i couldn't buy something. Its always have no time to go out. urghhhh... But its hard to find a thing you like when its expensive. There are variety of blouses that a little cheaper but i don't think i would like it though. Its not like in the Philippines that you could choose pretty ones for cheaper prices and would look good for you. I was a bit crazy in terms of shopping- I really have to roam around the mall to find affordable products but with good quality. It doesn't matter what brand it is, whats important it looks good when worn. But yesterday, i was shocked for purchasing a blouse from bebe department. I was really disappointed because my hubby keep on urging me to go home. That's why i end up rushing to bebe store and found a simple blouse but a little expensive. Though I'm quite regretful for what I've purchased but its worth it. At least i splurge something for me quite sometime.

He keep on telling me not to apply any kind of jobs unless i was able to acquired my drivers license. He was so upset because i didn't study my drivers manual- I was supposed to take the drivers test yesterday. I told him I've studied it but not sure if i could remember it. Since, i reviewed it last week- I'm kinda forgetful and want to be sure its fresh in my mind once i take the exam. One thing I'm afraid of -I was hesitant and lack of confidence on the wheel. I want to make sure I'm ready enough to drive the streets. Thus, i was screwed up for not showing my interview- making me guilty. Its unprofessional behavior not showing up for interview or even not letting them know. I was really anxious for that opportunity though its only for par time job. Whats important for me ill gain more exposures and experiences outside my expertise. As i really want to meet or mingle different kinds of people with different cultures. Maybe, my hubby has valid reason to act that way especially the wage is not that good. He also has a point- Its only a waste of gas if he will drive me off to work in opposite directions going to his work at the same time. So its better for me now to practice driving until ill gain more confidence.

I was making a homemade meatloaf today and my hubby loved it. He is really choosy in terms of food. At least, I'm a little contented when he complimented the meatloaf i made. He even doesn't like the way i cooked Filipino foods that's why its really hard for me to figured out what I'm gonna prepared. Way back home, i never know how to cooked. My father was the master chef in our house. We loved the way he cooked- it made us eat more. Its really yummy though, no wonder our family were having large physique. Especially his specialty (spicy adobo), you really wont stopped unless its empty. lol! But, when i got here, i tried hard to know how to cook. That's the way it is, a wife and a cook. Anyway, my husband is not really that demanding but i made sure i play my role as his wife. At least now, i learned how to cook and perhaps would learn more. Its not that hard if you just have Internet- just search for recipes you liked and your go. Though, its not really that perfect taste as master chef in restaurants- its just make me happy to look your hubby smiled. hehhehhe...

Crap day

I cant think of any topic i would write today. I feel tired for working whole day at my hubby's workplace. His boss asked me to clean and organized things in his office and will pay for my service. Yeah i was glad too at least i was able to earn at least once in awhile when he needed me for help in his office. Its not only an exercise but earning a bucks as well- better than sitting at home for nothing. Its not only helping my hubby but also gain more friends and exposure to career possibilities. I'm already missing my work - answering emergency calls and able to served people who is in need of help for emergency situations. Maybe, this would help start building experiences. I really want to be exposed to busy environment where i could mingle different kinds of people. Just wishing.... God knows... lol! This is the life in U.S.A -work hard for success.
I'll just crossed fingers, we don't know what gonna happen.... I'll just do whatever i can do.

Moms Miracles

I still vividly recall the time my mother was in the process of operating her back for complication of her diabetes. The scratch infected wound makes it more intricate. It extracts pus and the wounds gets bigger and bigger that the doctor advices my father to make her wound get operated. That time i was away from home getting started my orientation for entering government service specifically the Fire Protection. Never knowing whats going on my family. Until my Grandparents decided to let me know for my mom's wounds getting more worser. I have to choose if i have to continue my entering the service, its really a hard decision for me. But my mom resisted I should go on my dreams for Its for my future and i have to stick for that. I told her i want to go home to care for her but unfortunately, I don't have the money to go back home. My parents was already out of money that my aunt who is a well off volunteered to pay all the medical expenses. She decided to make me continue my journey through the Training Process of the service i joined. It was really horrible time for my life that i can’t do nothing except to go on in my journey. I remember the time where I pray to God hard that he will hear all my prayers and heal my mom - to have a successful operation. Never in my day i hadn't hold my little bible for hopes that my mom would make it through the hard process. How i wish i was there to uplift her, to do something that makes her healed. I have no idea that all my families, relatives and friends were praying for the successful operation and recovery of my mom. And to the helping hand of the people who love my mom, miracles happened to my family. We never expect such operation will still have hopes through all of us. The doctor says, If the wound will eat up the bones, it would never possible that my mom would make it. But, to our great relief God really hears our prayers. Though the doctor gets a basin of blood and pus from her back, the operation was still successful. You would’t try to look when you see how deep is the wound in her back. I would rather say If that happens to me I would not live. Thankfully, all bad things that had happened were overcome due to constant prayer and faith to God. I was thankful for the continues support of my aunts and friends who supported my family the time we are down. Thankful for God that he was there in times of my confusion and worries. But luckily, i made it through the service and worked for 4 years as a emergency dispatcher. Whenever, i received an emergency call regarding accidents, I cant resist not to reminisced the past- where my mom was in great battle. I'm glad to say that I'm proud, i was a dispatcher because i did compensate what others had given me. Though, it was only for a short period of time, i devoted myself serving people- I still constantly praying that peace and love will abound in every family and whole nations. With faith and constant prayers nothing is impossible with God- the redeemer, giver and healer. Hopefully, this story will give an example to those who lose hopes. Just believe in our Divine creator and everything will be fine.

Its a little weird that i craved for Filipino foods or fruits this past few days. Today, we went to the market where they sell fruits and vegetables. I found mangoes and jack fruits - it reminds me of Philippine delicacies. lol! My hubby was fond of me being so pathetic sometimes. Even seeing Filipinos makes me happy too... Just how shallow my happiness was- i easily get happy for little things. Yesterday, i cooked a sweet shredded coconut(bukhayo) and i was not satisfied for the results. Its not the one i expected to resembled with the Filipino made shredded coconut. But, at least i was able to satisfy my taste buds and cravings. I'm kinda odd... huh... lol! Sometimes, we went to a Filipino store and bought several products there. One of my hubby's favorite is the mango juice- he loves it so much. He was wishing he could procure one of our mangoes in the Philippines that he likes. Mangoes here was pretty much different than ours. He likes yellow and ripe mangoes when he tasted it way back the time he visited me. He also liked our Filipino own Tanduay rum- he always insisted to purchased more. Anyway, i just missed all the things and foods i used to have. I hope you could spare with me... lol!

My bestfriend

Do you guys have your own one & only best friend? A friend who is there for you in hard times and in happiness. A person whom you can lean on the times your down and in need for help. A person who will make you laugh no matter how grumpy you are. A person who understand and give you advices to make you feel better. A person who never quits your friendship even in times of disagreement. We all have a lot of friends but I'm sure we only have one chosen best friend. right? I was so glad that every now and then i was able to chat with my best friend. She's my friend ever since childhood & neighbors too. We never stop our friendship even when my family transferred to another place. We remain friends and became more even closer. I consider her my trusted friend and an adviser. She never hesitated to tell what she doesn't like about me- and that what makes me like her most. I still remember the time when we are still a kid, we played outside our house- pretending to be grown women making our houses and cooking leaves as if it was our food. Ohhhh... i still reminisced that moments enjoying every bit of our time not worried about what will gonna happen. That was amazing.... No worries....That's what friendship all about! This friend of mine makes me feel how wonderful to be loved and accepted as who i am. She makes me feel brave and confident enough to face all the trials i encountered. Shes very strong women! She never gives up during her course of test. I learned from her how to become patient and determine person. Shes not only a loving sister, a daughter but also good provider for her family. Shes also a good christian who believes that God is everything. I am always proud of her being so kind and excellent friend. Though, we far away with each other, we still remain the true meaning of our friendship. Love you and miss you my friend....

Missing my family

Its been 8 months now that i been away with my family. I already missed them so much especially my nieces and nephew. They make me happy everytime we played toys. They are such a cute angels to me... I reminisced the times that our family spend together at the beach. Its feels great and rewarding especially seeing your family together nibbling the foods laid in the table. Even if we only prepared sweet potato, banana and grilled fish- you could see how satisfied their faces. Until now, im pretty excited remembering those memories. I wished i could get a ticket that easy and fly back home to visit my family. But, its hard especially the airline ticket fair is so expensive. uhmmmmmmmmm. It would be fine if im rich but i am not. lol!
Especially this time of recession, all prices were growing up. But the wages were still the same.
You can't just go home without any pasalubong( presents ) for your family, relatives and friends.
We are really accustomed to give presents for them even just a chocolates. You would make them smile a little bit. lol! Anyway, that all for whining... have a good day to all!

I was in my husband's workplace today. I was kinda bored here at home and begged my hubby to come with him. At least to get away from boredom. I always been home all by myself every time my hubby works- its killing me... When i was in the Philippines, i really find time to spend with friends & cousins either in mall watching movie or just window shopping. I'm not a home buddy type... I'm a person who enjoys outdoor activities. But when i got here its hard especially if you have no friends you could visit near your house. Though, i already had my working permit- i can't also work. That sucks... Who will employ me if i don't have car? How will i get there to work? And if ever my hubby will drove me to work, the wage is not enough for gas & food. Ohhh i might get crazy.... lol! I really don't know what to do. I can't find a good wage job, i should start in low paying job for me to earn experience. Although, i had experience as fire women in the Philippines and works in emergency hot line as operator. But its still not enough experience to get a good job here. Its been many months, I've been battling of this challenges. Not only makes me pity of myself but triggers depression as well. But somehow, I tried to commit myself being busy everyday-making me forget the stressful boredom that overwhelmed me. I'm still thankful, i have a wonderful husband & family who is always there to lean on the hard times of my life. Thankful, i have friends on web and able to expressed my feelings through blogging.

Got dinner with my hubby

Every time my hubby get his paycheck every week, we spend time for a dinner either in buffet or any restaurant we want. Today, we went to a restaurant where they serve roasted peanuts before a course of meal. I was having fun eating those peanuts and feel satiated already. I was wondering why my hubby throwing all the peanut shells in the ground. Yet, i found out shells should be thrown in the ground. It was funny... lol! I could not resist not to laugh at it though. Its weird! The waitress asked us if we are ready to order in a menu. So, my hubby quickly ordered a beef steak with sweet potato because he was hungry for not eating lunch. That's what he got for not having lunch! growling stomach... Anyway, i ordered baby back ribs with two side dishes of apple cinnamon and vegetables. I like the taste of their barbecue, its sweet & savory. I could definitely ranked their foods as excellent. Though, I'm already full for nibbling the peanuts but i still able to consumed the barbecue ribs. lol! Not to mention their excellent customer service, its really amazing. The waitress entertained us very well, no wonder we're giving her a good tip. We certainly coming back again soon to spend our dinner there.

Banana Split Cravings

I screwed up again on my diet today. I asked my hubby to purchased me a banana split. I was craving for it- gosh. So, we end up buying a large one & it made me feel guilty now. I can't really resist not to craved for chocolates or ice cream. Its better for me not to eat meats than sweets. But, i know its not good for me especially my family had history of diabetes. I have the huge possibilities to inherit it. Just this few months i am battling of sticking on a proper diet and exercise. But sometimes its hard not to indulge what you craved - its very overwhelming. Who can't resist that yummy, chocolaty and creamy banana split. ohhh holy cow... I can't stop it.

How would you feel being on thier feet?

How would you feel if one of your relatives can't afford to procure three meals a day? would you feel pity? How about if you can't do nothing to help them because you have your own family to support too. Would you feel guilty? Imagine, how they survive for eating a meal just twice a day or even once a day. How would you react seeing them in your naked eye having the glow in their faces eating a small fish split into three pieces. Would you ask yourself - how they survive? If we are in their feet, could we survive too? We don't know if we will survive or not... right? Sometimes, i feel guilty every time i wasted the leftovers we had because we were full already. While, there are people out there who need food badly. Everytime, we eat in a buffet - I sneakily seen others who surmounted their plates with foods. I cant figure out how they finished it- or are they going to just wasted it if they're full. But anyway that's their life, they can do anything they want - i cant do nothing about it. Sometimes, i would wish to win a lotto so at least i could donate money to charity. Or i would yearn that the our government will do something to help the people who is in need. The people who doesn't have the shelter and not able to eat 3 meals a day. The poor people who cant afford for medical expenses. The people who desperately needs a job but can't be hired because of some educational preferences or even "ninong system". This is very apparent in our own country, we can't deny it. There are alot of graduates who remained in their homes because of competitive opportunities and lack of jobs. How i wish all the problems we have in our country will be solved.

My driving lesson.

I asked my hubby to teach me how to drive today. We went to the park and let me drive his truck w/c was really big for me. He was really frightened the way i drive because i never listened to his instructions. He was really nervous everytime i drove over a pavement and holes. Ofcourse, i never experience driving a car in my entire life. I think i got phobia since i have an accident driving a motor bike. It just makes me uneasy in the wheel everytime i remember that event. I almost thrown to the waterway if not with that big stone blocked on it. Holy cow... i almost got killed with that. Im still thankful that big stone saved me. No wonder until now im not comfortable & confident enough to drive my own yet. It makes me nervous & shaky but no choice i have to practice and overcome my fears. Its hard not working and be alone all the time. I have to face my fears so i could get more confident in the wheels. Though, my hubby is not really calm in terms of teaching me how to drive. I still understand him because i know im really stupid sometimes. hehehehe Anyway, i hope one of this days- I can drive already with my own & not panic. So that i could start finding jobs and go shopping my own too....

wow i like spring season

Its really a nice day today. The weather was clear and sunny. So i ask my husband to drove me to the park so i could at least jogged for half an hour. He never come with me due to his knee injury. He can't run anymore and hesitant to walk too. So that means i'm jogging alone at the park but enjoyed it. At least i got sweat ... Since i arrived here last year, i gained alot of weight. its freaking me out... Thats why i started to limit my food intake and find time to exercise. After we got home, i was inspired to clean the front & back yard of our house. Its been a long time that i never clean it . Grass and leaves were on stock already. My husband and i help raked the pile of leaves and grass. Put it in the garbage and plant some flowers. We started to see flowers of different colors. It was really nice to see them just grow like that. Its pretty amazing if you haven't seen that until you arrived here in US. I never seen flowers growing in our yard before. hehehe... Thats what i really like in the spring season. Its just a nice weather for me to enjoy going out. I can't wait to wear sleeveless and colorful blouses. I can't wait to explore more of our city yet. I want to see all the wonderful views and sights in this state. Ohh how i love spring...

Life in the U.S.A

I really thought life here in U.S is easy. But, I am wrong... Its really opposite of what i expected. Living a life here is expensive. Especially the unending surges of prices in our everyday necessities like gasoline, foods and homes. Not to mention the growing numbers of unemployed individuals who provides their respective families. Interest rates of credit cards, loans and mortgages were incredibly high. Before you could borrow money or loan from banks, be sure you have good credits to avoid big interest rates. Once you forgot to pay your bills or late paying fees, it affects your credit score. Once you never pay your mortgage for many months, your house will be facing foreclosure. The property you've been paying for a long time will be gone. Sometimes, you'll receive unemployment insurance check if ever you lost your job. But, Is it enough for all the expenditures? ofcourse, the answer is not. Its not easy to find job if you've been laid off. It affects the credibility of your Resume. You will notice a slight difference or changes of your current wage. You can't splurge yourself for fun, if you want. Because money is scarcely enough... sigh... Life is not easy... When will be the time we'll be out of debt... I hope

There are times in our life, we feel we're carrying a heavy burden on our shoulders. But, we dont know why and what makes us feel that way. We are confused and dont know how to surpass those pessimistic attitudes & thoughts we had. We regret the moment why such feeling conquer us & make us more vulnerable to wrong judgement. We can no longer function our everyday task because that feeling overpowered us to become weak. Sometime we're overwhelmed by unexpected trials and challenges that we have just encountered in our entire life. We want quick answers to those pains that been bothering in our hearts & minds for quiet some time now. But, we dont know where & how to begin the process. We feared for failures and loss. We tried hard to fix everything back to normal. As if, we are able to defeat the games in our lives. But, we are wrong, theres still missing. Something you cant hardly imagine that you're able to solved. Or something u even dont know... It will eventually ruined you more each day.

Thing's are expensive here

Just got from the mall today. I was so happy because my husband offer to purchase something
i like. Ofcourse, i never hesitate to choose the purse that I'm longing for a few days now. Way back home, i used to collect any kind of purses and sandals. When i arrived here, its kinda different. Oh my gosh, all the things were expensive for me compared in the philippines where you can buy nice purses and sandals for cheap price. Maybe because i converted it to peso currency. But thats what a true filipino character unless your really rich though. But anyway, my husband bought what i want and he was teasing me how i easily get pleased. My happiness is only shallow... Especially when he surprised me last Christmas with a jewelry. That was really romantic for me. lol wish he won't change till we get old...

The true meaning of a women

We define women as symbol of femininity, the opposite of masculanity. But, there are various definitions and interpretation regarding a women. They might be a wife or mistress, a feminist or not, a bride or spinster, a highly respected or destitute individual. They all play the same role as individual in human society. In premitive years, women considered to be different in todays modern days. In todays era, we became more strong, open minded, positive driven person able to fight and struggle in her inclination to succeed and able to excel an equal opportunies and achievement as of the opposite sex. We are more enhanced and developed through new technologies and profession that primitive women doesn't have. Though, there are still women whose beliefs and disposition doesn't change. But, through the help of new technology and women groups, they were able to cope up what is today's trends. We still have to continue the qualities of a premitive women in order for us to maintain the true meaning of a women. No matter how progressive and successful we are in our respective endeavor, we should not forget our role as a wife for our husband, a daughter to our parents, a mom to our children, a friend and responsible person to our environment and communities.
