Bedroom Furniture

Sunday, September 30, 2007

Our bedroom is my most preferred part of our house. It is where my husband and I use up most of our time whenever we are home and the best place to rest our tired bodies from daily task to earn a living that is why we exert all our energy and effort to make it look its best. I am proud to say that we have invested on a collection of contemporary bedroom furniture that dominates its look for a more comfortable and stylish expression.

This is perfectly what I describe as a *roomy* bag. Got this one from dear daughter Rhea, dear because she has no way to refuse, hahahaha. You know I have this very bad habit of turning my bag upside down whenever I cannot find what I am looking for and this is good enough to counter my crabby head. Thanks!


I love pens

What are the essential tools you carry in your bag? I can clearly say that I cannot do away without my pens. I do a lot of signing office documents so I have the utmost need which even started my fancy for these. In fact it has been a habit to purchase a variety of them whenever I pass by a bookstore or novelty shops. My favorites are jell pens in different colors. Do you know I collect pens from places I have been whenever I travel? I find pens so addicting.

I know one happy man and I share his joy too. He*s lucky to have a generous mom who compensate his services for the company. Hmmm….isn*t it just motherly love? I guess so!
You know what his mom wanted in exchange? Diet and exercise.

a portable oxygen concentrator, a helpful device

Tuesday, September 25, 2007

My Seattle based friend Rhona is in town since last Friday visiting his stroke stricken dad. When I called her the following day, I had known that her dad just checked out of the hospital due to pneumonia. When I called she said she was busy and told me she will call me back. She said she is still attending to a man who was at their home to check and install this portable oxygen concentrator to provide oxygen therapy to his dad. In less than 30 minutes she gave me a ring back.

I*ve satisfied my cravings

Since hubby is on a diet for some no no foods because of his creatitine, tryglicerides and cholesterol a little elevated, me and the kids are kinda affected with this. We have to go for vegetables, grilled fish and chicken alone. Good thing we treated a visiting couple (Kuya Sam and Ate Grace) from Jakarta at Seaside near the Mall of Asia so we feasted for seafoods which I*ve been missing for almost 2 months.

Looking forward to a Dell Laptop

My husband and I would always come to a rift whenever he would tag me along to meet client turned friends. Normally I don’t want to join them so I would just go around the mall to window shop. One time I tried to refuse because I have to beat a deadline to post some campaign offers but he was so insistent to let me go with him. We came in early for the appointment and while we were waiting he brought me to a Laptop Shop offering great deals on Dell laptops. I had a big smile on my face upon hearing his promise to get me one and another student laptop for Queenie as birthday present. You see me and daughter Queenie’s birthday falls on the same date. Well if that’s the case, with my Dell laptop, there will be no problem with him tagging me anytime, any place, anywhere!

Succession Planning

Putting up a business is never easy much less maintaining an existing one. New or established, it takes a lot of continuous preparation to grow progress and get established in the market.
We have been in the security industry for over 40 years now and I may gladly say we are doing well. All credits goes to its founder, my father-in-law who have initiated, applied and imparted to us some succession planning tools that we had made use to this very day.

Entrepreneurs should never be contented and never cease to think and find all the means to improve in order to offer the best service and merchandise for public consumption and alongside gain more profit.

DIY Hair Coloring

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I don't normally do this not if there's an urgent need. Just when I was about to leave for the salon, I realized that it was a Wednesday and the one who does my coloring is in his day off. I have a scheduled meeting with a prospective client and will be having dinner with Gina & Beth tomorrow and birthday parties to attend to this week-end so this DIY is badly needed.


Back to Golf

Realizing the need to go back to his foremost hobby that is golf, my husband brought out his Golf Equipment which has long been stocked-up in our backyard storage. The reason behind this was that he was advised by his doctors to shed off those excess pounds to normalize his tryglicerides and cholesterol level to prevent the risk of having heart problems later. He was also told to follow a strict diet and a regular exercise is a must to keep him fit and trim. I am hopeful that his desire to play golf once again will go on regular schedule and not just be ”a spark of the moment”.

The Keys To Your Heart

Tuesday, September 18, 2007

A tag from Francine

The Keys to Your Heart
You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.
In love, you feel the most alive when your partner is patient and never willing to give up on you.
You'd like to your lover to think you are loyal and faithful... that you'll never change.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.
Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the future... one you can grow with.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.
In this moment, you think of love as commitment. Love only works when both people are totally devoted.


A new van!

The service vehicle we use to transport our security guards to our clients was old enough so we decided to trade it with a new 4x4 van a week ago. Since it is also intended for family use, my husband opted to accessorize it. First thing he did was to buy a hinge type tonneau cover to protect our luggage and stuffs when we go on out of town trips.


I'm a little snobby

Cuz Girlie want's to find out or CONFIRM? Yes I am but just a little.

You Are A Little Snobby

And being a little snobby every once and a while is totally allowed.
Because if no one was ever snobby, no one would ever try to dress up or look pretty.
And while you do enjoy the finest things in life (that you can afford), you tire of superficiality.
You know there's more to life than what's just on the surface.
Are You a Snobby Girl?

Now, I want to know how these people score:

How's business?

Monday, September 17, 2007

How would you like to come into an office equipped with fine choices of furniture and fixtures? I’m sure you would feel the ease and comfort transacting business with them. On the contrary would you expect a business to perform well when you catch sight of dilapidated, unpolished or even old office desks? High quality office furniture plays a very important role in the over all impression of a business and by then you can generally judge how far the company has progressed.

In the medical field

Sunday, September 16, 2007

My eldest daughter Rhea Marie who graduated from Medical School and just finished her Internship is now preparing for the upcoming boards. Though she's not yet licensed, I've witnessed her do minor emergency surgeries with our employees most of whom are our security guards. Just recently when one of them figured out in a mauling incident, she has to stitch the guard's head wounds. It's good I have invested for her some basic medical supplies to use.

Knowing we have a future medical practitioner around, some of our staff bring their kids for consultation and prescriptions for mild cases like persistent coughs and colds, pneumonia or asthma. A number of them comes for blood sugar and blood pressure check. My friends even calls for consultation and referrals too. I'm overjoyed to see her willingness to help. My only wish and prayer now is for her to pass the medical board.

Weight Loss Method

My husband has been a diabetic for almost fourteen years now. He comes from a family of diabetics. Aside from the genes this illness was aggravated for his love for food but never for exercise. So as expected he suffers from obesity. Is this a disease or simply a matter of poor diet and lack of exercise?

Obesity solutions and weight loss methods have been considered to get rid of his excess weight and one of this is to undergo a weight loss surgery. This Lap Band Surgery makes use of an adjustable belt that wraps around the upper potion of your stomach, creating a smaller gastric pouch which will limit the amount of food that can be contained in the stomach, slowing down food flow. As a result, one will feel full faster with smaller amount of food. The Laparoscopic Band’s contraction also helps restrains cravings between meals.

We have heard a lot of success stories from many patients who have tried this weight loss option. My husband was encouraged and will undergo the same procedure soon.

Sporty Halloween Costumes

With Halloween just around the corner, I and some active, concerned community members have started to get busy planning and preparing for this upcoming neighborhood Trick or Treat. Some parents have been inquiring about the affair and offer to lend their helping hand to make the occasion a success. Others even came bringing along and showing me some sketches and pictures of Halloween Costumes they plan to have their children wear on this affair. This made me more excited knowing everyone is cooperating and working as a team.

Just yesterday, a group of young boys came to ask me if I they can come wearing a sporty attire as their Halloween Costumes. Know what? They are a bunch of football fanatics who are dying to wear their favorite team get up complete with all the needed accessories from top to bottom. Of course I said yes and even gave them this website so they can surf and enhance the ideas they have in mind. The boys were very happy, excited and they cannot wait much longer for this event.
Ever have kids who love football? Then you may consider this idea of having them wear football attire this Halloween. This will surely make them happy and excited knowing they can express what they desire for.

This was one big news last weekend "Camille Pratts is 4 months pregnant". I posted this entry because here I confirmed how media can sensationalize a news by connecting it with something or someone that will make it grand so people will make a big fuzz out of a subject. In this case, they linked an innocent individual to create a puzzle on some peoples mind on who fathered Camilles's baby.

In fairness, I've seen this couple, Camille and Anthony since they were in their teens tagging along with their parents Mareng Alma & Pareng Dondee (Camilles's) and Mareng Mel & Pareng Eddie (Anthony's) in almost all the parties/occassions of BFF Edna. Edna's daughter Ginger and Camille are bestfriends since grade school days at O.B. Montessori. So, in some ways I also had an idea how love bloomed between Anthony and Camille.
All the best for both of you and your baby!

Blog and Earn through PPP

I have signed up with PayPerPost a couple of months ago, 22nd of June to be exact upon the influence of my stay-at-home-cousin who turned problogger. At first, I was not that interested on the idea but just the same I gave in to her proposal. I posted my blog ads only 2 weeks ago followed by a few more, and would you believe I have earned almost a hundred green bucks! Had I known that it*s that easy earning by writing on topics of your choice, I should have started a little earlier.
Through this experience, my readers some of them turned to be friends have been sending me emails inquiring about earning through PPP. Eventually they have signed up too!

I’m so happy knowing that I can buy my favorite designer pouch and shoes very soon. Thanks to PPP.


The best dentist for us

Thursday, September 13, 2007

It’s already late when I realized the big impact of having a good if not perfect set of teeth. It definitely contributes a great deal on one’s facial aura. Not too late though, mine is not considered awful as you may see because I was still lucky to find one of the best dentist in town for me and my two girls. A charlotte cosmetic dentist provide the best services possible within the cosmetic dentistry industry. Here, your needs and wants shall be taken cared of and surpassed.


facial treat

Consecutive meetings hindered my vanity schedules the past days but I was so thankful today for having a chance to drop by my Derma Clinic for my 4th diamond peel session. If my facial skin can, it will say or rather shout *thanks, cloggy no more !!!* Oh yeah! whiteheads, blackheads and and developing millias now gone.


Get rid of bad habits

Most uninformed people associates the word *addiction* to drug dependency alone. Addiction covers a wide array of habitual cravings like alcohol, drugs, pain killers or other forms of substances. In whatever form they maybe, addiction treatment is a must.

There are quite a number of rehab centers that offers the most tender and effective ways to treat drug addiction, alcohol dependency and painkiller addiction. Some even handles the needs of anyone suffering from eating disorders and depression. Go for treatment, it pays.


Trying hard, Ouuuch !!!

*Do you want to stand out from the rest of the crowd? There is one sure way to do it. Slip on a pair of sexy high heel shoes and you will find yourself standing taller than what you expect.*

*With sexy shoes your legs will appear longer and slimmer than they actually are. They also help to create more elegant curves starting from your hip and going down to your toes.*

Oh no! As much as I love wearing sexy high heel shoes the way I used to some years back, I don’t feel comfortable anymore. I tried wearing one the other day when I attended a client’s meeting but gosh it hurts and got cramps. Good thing I brought a pair of spare lower heeled shoes but just the same I had to have a leg massage when I got home. I think I need a little practice to get use to wearing sexy high heeled shoes again!

Labels: ,

Don't delay, go for treatment at once!

Drug addiction is a huge problem anyone must not ignore. It is a big menace to society because majority of crimes committed nowadays are mostly attributed to drug dependency problems. If you, someone you love or if you suspect a family member may have this problem, seek action. Find help and go for drug treatment Remember severe problems follow out of delay.


Hands Free

Wednesday, September 12, 2007

I often turn my head and give a second glance whenever I see mothers carrying their babies using baby sling. I was not aware know that there are lots of benefits in it. I have never really experienced carrying my baby that way because I had nannies to take care of them. But come to think of it, I would have been one of those mothers I see now that I had known the life long benefits of carrying babies in sling and I’m gladly sharing them to everyone particularly new mothers alike.

Baby wearing in baby slings eases your baby's transition from the womb to the world because it maintains the baby and mother’s closeness. It promotes and enhances the bond between parent and child. It is also convenient for breastfeeding mothers on the go and frees your hands for other work you need to attend to.
Baby slings are suitable for newborns to toddlers up to 35 lbs. but don’t worry because most children stop wanting to be carried in a sling by age 3 to 4 and 35 lbs. In most cases, your child will stop wanting to be carried before they outgrow the sling.

A Sexy Halloween

Saturday, September 8, 2007

How fast the days go by and before you know it’s already Halloween, and then comes Christmas and another year to come and go. Gosh, how time flies!

With Halloween just around the corner, it’s good I already have an idea from one internet site on what Halloween Costume my young lady Queenie and grandaughters will wear for their class party. But who say’s Halloween parties are just for kids or young people around? Of course not!

My friends and I have organized a Halloween party exclusively for females. Why? It’s because we all agreed to come in Naughty Halloween Costumes and Sexy Halloween Costumes . We will hold the party in one of my pal’s condo suite somewhere in Ayala, Alabang and that’s definitely exciting to look forward to. Our group often meets for plain girl talks, sharing what’s new with us over coffee or tea, plain dinner or lunch which became kind of boring at times so this different menu was conceptualized.

It’s good I already found something to wear for this affair, a bit sexy but not slutty. When choosing adult costumes, you want the best possible look possible without showing too much. I’m still having double thoughts which of these two Adult Sexy Halloween Costumes to choose from. What do you think?

Thanks to this site! They offer a huge selection of Naughty Adult Costumes to insure you look and feel sexy. They are the largest Adult Party and Halloween Costumes Shop and all their costume selections come in DISCOUNTED prices.

Go grab a sexy costume and Have a Naughty Halloween!

Poker Tables at Cardroom

Nowadays, poker is fast becoming a popular card game. There are poker games online and I use to see my husband watching poker games on national television wherein known celebrities compete. His friends come over on alternate week-ends to play, either Fridays or Saturday nights. One of our targets very soon is buy a new poker table that would match both our taste. I want a beautiful, functional, and complete with coasters, chip / domino holders with top protection from nasty spills, durable and affordable piece while he wants something classy and gorgeous looking.

I found a site to help us with our quest for the perfect poker table. Cardroom Supply has one of the internets largest selection of high quality Poker Tables and poker supplies and 90% of their tables are in stock and are shipped the same or the next business day. Cardroom Supply sends all orders out as fast and safe as possible. You can order online or call toll free if you have any questions. They offer free shipping for purchases over $100.

Now, we are a little confused which of their wide arrays to choose from. They even have this foldable type which you can easily slip in just any corner to save space when it’s not in use while there’s also this one that you can use as a new dining table for your hobbies and puzzles complete with roll casters to make your play experience easy and comfortable, brand new and very elegant. The later is my husband’s favorite piece. We have to act real soon which of those Poker Tables we decide to buy.


Chip Sets

Friday, September 7, 2007

One among my memorable experiences during our trip to the U.S. was our visit and brief stay at Las Vegas. The place was just awesome and if my daughter Queenie loved Disneyland, Las Vegas simply was one Disneyland to mommy.

Though I am not a gambler per se’, we visited their amazing casinos and tried my hand just for the experience and thrill of it. First we had some cash exchanged at a casino cage or counter for tokens which is termed as casino tokens or chips which are small discs in place of currency. These are colored metal or compression molded clay tokens in different denominations and are primarily used in table games but not in slot machines.

I’m quite familiar with these Chip Sets because I remembered having purchased a set which we use for our majong sessions at home. For those of you who are in need of high quality chips, Cardroom Supply offers casino quality poker chips sets at great prices.

The best part about these chips is that they already have the denominations on them but are not limited into being either dollars or cents. The 5, 25, 50, and 1 chip can be used as either Dollars or Cents or any currency they represent, making them extremely versatile for the user.The detail on these chips is perfect and their unique design makes them great for casinos and home-style play alike. Remember to check this out it you need quality at affordable poker chips

Why she blogged it!

Thanks M-A-R-I-L-E-N-E !!!

Find that Shoes
Posted by penoybalut

This is a cute pair huh! I was following a thread on Filipino cooking and ended on Marie's blog, my admiration didn’t stop there, he he I sent her an email asking where she got it and what it is. She said she got it in HK and it is MXM, not sure if it is MaxMara, but I did googled the brand and didn’t find it. Leads anyone?

Women and shoes is something that can’t be separated, we just have to have the right shoes for each outfit. A reason to buy one, be it ennui, angst, or just gotta have that. Ooops, my consumerism is showing or is it my browness? Imelda Marcos of the thousand shoes fame is after all a Filipino :0 A friend even justified it as shoes gives a woman a pep in her every step.

Think about it as our contribution to the economy, there is a lot of effort involved in the production of those shoes, after all. Didn’t I say there is no effort to be profound here?

An innovative approach to learning

When my youngest daughter entered school, I noticed that she’s a slow learner and doesn’t have much interest to learn. I asked advices from friends and one of them recommended that I get her an Innovative Tutor, one who can help my child develop key academic skills and goal-setting abilities. This particular program assesses kids’ academic strengths and weaknesses before they even start tutoring, so the teachers can create customized learning plans for each child. Score Learning Centers offers this new and innovative tutoring program to enhance and enrich the child’s learning abilities. I will definitely take my child to a Score Learning Center.

Inspiring blog links

Thursday, September 6, 2007

Finding our blog links cannot just be attributed to chances although some of them come along unintentionally. One thing good about it is that we are given the choice to select who we wanted to link up, connect, associate and later build a relationship with through this wonderful world of blogging.

In my case this blogging experience has taught me so many wonderful things. I have build an online journal of what’s been happening in my life for the past three years and get the opportunity of sharing them with people around on line. I have established friendship among my links shared my views and comments on encouraging topics with moral lessons you will learn from which they joyously shared with. And lately I have hopped in the bandwagon of professional bloggers making good money out of it.

I have been very lucky with my so called blog links and a I have met quite a number of them in person. Meeting up with them was so much fun; there were no inhibitions because there was this so called bonding which has developed prior to the encounter.

Memoirs of a Sojourner by blogger David is highly recommended for your “reads”. Here, he shares inspiring stories of his life struggles – the joy and suffering of living and the wonders of prayer.

We found him a mate!

We were so happy we found our darling Totoy a mate. You see I have been thinking about this for months since we do not want to deprive him of his sexual needs. We want him to be one normal specie just like one human being because we love him and treat him as one.The female doggie is owned by our heater installer when we had our bathroom renovated. Our pets were both first timers so we needed to hire a "shooter". The deal is that if lucky to have the female pregnant (it will take about 65 days) we requested one male and female babies to keep.


Holiday deals online

Ber months have started that signals the coming of cheerful holidays in tow – Halloween, Thanksgiving and of course the Yuletide season. Preparations for these need to be done as early as now to save time, effort, energy and money scouting for gifts to dole out. First of which is our annual neighborhood community association that I chair which organizes the Halloween trick or treat for kids followed by a fun program with lots of games and prizes in store for its members and not to forget the planning and preparation of giveaways for our staff and what to give my godchildren this Christmas.

driving to Serendra -------- my bright red melissa scarfun

It has been three weeks ago since my daughter have been bragging about this latest shoe brand which she said I would love for sure. I checked out it's local site plus I checked it out last week at Mix-Greenbelt but they have few stocks and styles left because the saleslady claimed it was selling like hotcakes......hmmm? She told me to check it out at Mia Bella at Serendra if they still have smallest sizes for styles and colors I like. Early Sunday morning, I called Mia Bella and reserved for it. Anyway my daughter Rhea promised to share 2,000 bucks out of her first paycheck and even drove me of to Serendra after our afternoon church vesper service.

With us is my pretty niece Camille.

I was also lucky to buy 2 tops on sale at 2 boutiques at the Mall of Asia prior to this and a pair of black flat doll shoes. Wowee!


Strictly for Girls!!!

Bushy or Bald? Do you go for Brazilian Wax?

Brazilian waxing is the procedure of removing hair in the genital area. Girls to women of different ages go for varied and different reasons like 1) hygiene, 2) they find it sexy and/or 3) they don’t want them sticking out of their undies or bikinis.

Here*s how it*s done in Tips N Toes
Waxing is done in a private room with a door. You remove your pants & underwear and sit in a coach with clean towels or sheets. It takes about 30 min. to an hour.

Powder is applied over the genital area first. The waxer will dip a waxing stick into a pot of hot wax and then spread it in a bandage like cloth strip. She will then apply the cloth strip over the upper area first of the “V” pressing firmly so the cloth, hair and wax adhere to one another. When the wax has cooled, she will pull the strip off, in the opposite direction of your hair growth, pulling the hairs out by the root and so on. The best waxers are fast, which means less discomfort for you. Your waxer will tweeze any stray hairs.

Once the waxing is done, the waxer will spread soothing lotion over the waxed areas to avoid bumps and redness.

Be sure to get the name of the waxer so when you come back for another appointment you can have the same person to do it and don’t have to go naked again all for another stranger.

What to expect:
Like any waxing, the procedure can be very painful at first but frequent visits usually cut down the pain factor. As for the embarrassment factor – you just have to think that getting a Brazilian can't be any more embarrassing than a typical visit to your gynecologist's office. These aestheticians have seen it all before.


Make money the PPP way

Saturday, September 1, 2007

I signed up with PayPerPost a couple of months back upon the influence of my co-blogger cousin Girlie who is a stay- at-home mom. Actually, I was not too enthusiastic about the idea knowing this might just be another internet campaign propaganda. Oh, I was totally wrong! Girlie has been earning a lot of cash with PayPerPost like she’s got one permanent job without leaving her home. I thought and confirmed that this is real straight from the horse’s mouth. So I said I can also make money and save for an expensive branded purse I want to buy for my birthday soon. This is one great way of earning specially during these hard times.

Signing up is as easy as 1,2, 3. As soon as your blog gets approved in a couple of days you can check for hundreds of opportunities they offer and get to choose topics to write about. You can experience the joy of blogging and at the same time making money by writing your opinions on topics that interest you. They pay through PayPal or if you do not have a PayPal account they will pay and send you a check.

So what are you waiting for? Make money by joining on the bandwagon of bloggers who have earned lots of cash the PPP way!
