Manage Your Properties

My husband and I are thinking of which business to put up in the future so that this early we can already start saving up for it. We don’t want to keep working until we get old so we are contemplating on different business ideas.

It seems franchising a business is the fad nowadays so we’re getting information about it. Or maybe we can start an internet café since internet is now a major part of our lives. Lastly we’re also thinking of building an apartment, maybe a 3-door one would be great. If you’re thinking of the same, you can go check out Real Property Management. it’s a great company that offers real property management and has property managers, maintenance personnel, etc. Now you would be assured that your property is in good hands.

R.I.P. Michael Jackson

I woke up this morning with a sad news that greeted me. Michael Jackson is dead. I quickly checked the internet and looked for articles and it did confirm that the King of Pop is gone. I'm saddened with the news and for me he was really a great performer and I loved his moonwalk, I think everybody did.

I'll definitely remember his songs and his dance moves and his legacy will live on.

I checked youtube and found this video where he premiered his moonwalk dance. It was a historic performance and I was glassy-eyed when I finished watching it.

May you rest in peace, Michael. I hope you finally find the peace and contentment that might have eluded you while you were still here.

Great deals at Accor Hotels

I have always wanted to travel. I would imagine going to different countries to savor their culture, visit landmarks and of course, eat my way around the world!

I have never been out of the country so my husband said we could go to Hongkong first for a weekend adventure. I think it’s no more than an hour for travel time so it won’t take long if we go there. I was checking hotels online when I came across Accor Hotels City Super Sale and wow, this really got me all excited. They offer as much as 60% discount for cities that include Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, etc. But hurry because this offer is for a limited time only. I suggest you visint their website to get more details. And not only that, Accor Advantage Plus members get to enjoy 10% discounts on all City Sale Rates! Sweet, isn’t it? I remember that this discount also applies to dining in the hotel’s restaurant like Sofitel Hotel here in the Philippines. If you travel a lot, it would really be great if you could join the club and get your Accor Advantage card.

Since I’ve never been abroad, this will take a great deal of planning if I go on vacation. I’m thinking of going to Singapore and maybe even visit Abi whom I have never seen in years. Or just go to Hongkong and satisfy my taste buds. Well, either way would be fun now if only I could finally secure a passport I can get started on my plans.


DSL troubles

For the past two days, my dsl connection has been really unstable and it has affected my work a lot. I've been told that if I don't report for work on time tonight due to internet connection yet again, I have to go to our Training Center in Pasig to work there. Sigh. That puts me in a tight spot because I have two young kids and there's a typhoon which makes it a challenge to commute to and from work. I just hope and pray my internet connection doesn't fail me tonight.

Online Games for fun

I have always played games online to while away time especially during my shift when there aren’t many calls. There are a lot of websites that offer free games and good thing I discovered multiplayer games, It offers a free online multiplayer billiard game. Well, I’m not very lucky when playing an actual billiard game so I think I have a good chance of winning online.

One thing I am very particular of in online games is how fast it loads and the ease in using its interface. Good thing it is the case with the billiard game online so I now have something new to do when boredom strikes me or when I’m relaxing after a hard day’s work.

Happy Father's Day!

Greetings to all the Fathers especially to my father, father-in-law, and Dadi! We love you!

On Getting a Web host Provider

For bloggers like me, I’m sure getting a web host provider has entered your mind. There are many advantages to getting one and definitely a lot of companies that offer web hosting. The question is how to choose the right one, and also, which web host provider works best to meet your needs.

I checked web hosting awards I was floored by the information available. It doesn’t only lists the web host providers available but it even has ratings, reviews and also gives awards to deserving web host providers. Of course, before we venture into something and pay for it with our hard-earned money, we have to be assured that we are getting our money’s worth.

I am going to read on their blog too and I think this is a great article to start with Finding the Perfect Balance of Disk Space and Bandwidth. Honestly, I don’t know much yet about the pros and cons of getting a web host provider as well as what things to take in to consideration when choosing for one so I am going to learn the basics first.

For how many years now and still counting, I have used free blog hosting providers and I intend to maintain my blog for a very long time so I think I should invest in a quality web host provider. One that would be hassle-free for a working mom like me.

Summer or Rain

I loved the Twilight movie and among the books, it is also my favorite. Edward Cullen is just too dazzling as I am sure a lot of girls out there would agree and he complements Bella’s character. In the book, Bella moved to Forks, Washington and coming from Phoenix, Arizona it was a drastic change in the weather as it usually 75 to 80 degrees there compared with Forks where it rains most of the time. I’m just thinking if I were Bella, would I choose to stay in a place where it’s always summertime or some place where it’s cold and wet? I think I’d stick it with the sun and for those looking for information in Arizona, you can check out Arizona relocation. And while you’re at it, you can also visit New Home Developments to look at new homes.

Mommy Moments: Outdoor Fun

We don't go out most of the time but when we do, Jeremy is always beside himself with excitement. Just last May, we went to La Mesa Ecopark and he played in the playground. He busied himself with the slides and running around the place. His Tito Bong, my brother, played with him and they had so much fun.


Just look at his face when I told him that we were about to leave LOL! He kept running back to the slides because he didn't to go yet.


And here's Jamie, sleeping as usual :)


And finally, she woke up to say hi to everyone!

Wish list

Whenever my hubby and I go window-shopping, we always pass by the furniture shops. Well, we’re moving in to our own house late next year so I look for pieces that will work for us. But they are really expensive. If given the chance, I’d love to have a king-sized bed in our room with two lamp shades, cabinets and a nice window treatment. We could also do with a wooden dining table and chairs. Sigh. Just looking at the pieces here in rustic furniture make me drool LOL! These are such timeless, classic pieces that I’m sure will stand the test of time.

First off, I'd like to thank my family for helping me take care of my kids these past weeks. You rock!

Also, thanks to the bosses at work for giving me extra hours. We need to add to our savings for Jamie's Christening this July.

Thanks to my hubby for always being there for me. And to my kids, of course. You all make me complete.

And definitely, I'd like to thank Jesus for the strength to overcome life challenges. No matter how difficult life can get, I am not afraid for You are here :)

Looking Good in Scrubs

I admire what Nurses do. It’s no joke caring for the sick, getting along with different types of patients , enduring long working hours, and you know, just being there and sympathetic to the patient.

It was one of my childhood dreams to be a Nurse but I’m way too scared of needles and blood so I had to forego of that dream. I just noticed that there are more nursing students now and one can get really useful information from Scrubs. Nurses and Nursing students alike will surely get useful tips with the varied topics that are discussed at the website.

I particularly liked the article on Wake Up Looking Younger. This just doesn’t apply to nurses but everybody in general. After a hectic day at work, we need to take care of ourselves too and usually we just need to go back to basics to look and feel better. 5 tips are listed and are pretty easy to follow. Just knowing how to sleep in the right position can do so much in improving one’s health.

There is so much to read about in Scrubs and now that it’s the summer season, it even has a neat section for Style. Being a nurse doesn’t mean one can’t be stylish anymore. Check out the Style section for the summer checklist and a fashion designer also shows off scrubs great for summer.

Difficult Times

It's been two weeks since Jeremy's nanny left and she's not coming back. There were applicants but really, they were all demanding. The first one wanted to leave every night so that she can be with her kids. Okay. That's out of the question. She is supposed to take care of Jeremy's needs at night (he still drinks milk when he wakes up in the middle of the night) because I take care of Jamie who's turning 3mos. old this month. So I turned her down. The other applicant wanted to work as an all-around helper and for my mother to take care of Jeremy. LOL! Well, my concern really is for someone to look after Jeremy. We can do the chores. I can do the laundry during my day off from work. Again, I declined.

There were a few more applicants but all did not come up to par. Being a Recruitment Officer at work, I've learned to read deeper to the applicant's answers. Too bad I sensed the hesitance on the applicants's part and for me, that's a sign that they are not too keen on the job.

Anyway, it has not been easy these past two weeks. My youngest brother looks after Jeremy while I work while my mom takes care of Jamie until my husband arrives from the office. I only get to sleep well during weekends and the other days, coffee and multivitamins help me get through :)

I don't know if we'll find the right nanny for Jeremy but definitely, I won't be settling for just anybody because we know how great an influence they could be to our kids. For the meantime, our set-up at home still works. It just gets better when everybody steps in to help one way or another :)

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

This video made my day:

credits to user lego4almonds

Yep, that's the latest and they say the final trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince which is scheduled for release on July 15, 2009. It's just more than a month from now and I can hardly wait! I'm so excited to watch this movie and I'll definitely go to the cinema on the first showing day LOL! I loved the book and judging from the trailer, it looks like it will give justice to all the important scenes in the book. I'm glassy-eyed now just remembering how the story ended :(

Enough HP for now. Back to work :)

Jeremy's Birthday

My eldest child, Jeremy, will be celebrating his 11th birthday on December 20 and he already has plans for the day. It will just be a simple...
