Eye Problem

Having eye problems are encountered not only by adults but also with small children. Last year I also discovered that my eyes were starting to disturb me. I started to look for some possibilities to have an eyeglasses. But since people here in our place have the difficulty in explaining to me about the need of a reading eyeglasses I failed to buy one.

Just recently I discovered Stahl Eye Center, it is known as Lasik, it reduces or eliminates the need for glasses or contact lenses. It is the most performed surgery in the U.S. which normally has no pain, its vision recovery is only few hours, I guess, I like to have it. You can see well for about a day or after two days, this sounds great for me. I'm grateful that I discovered this kind of surgery. It's fast and I would rather say "no" for eyeglasses.

Try to check this and see for yourself.

Then Sings My Soul

Then Sings My Soul is the meme I've missed a lot. I wasn't able to join for quite sometime. Though I'm a bit dizzy I will still write because of my love for music. Hymns is one of my favorite songs that I love most as what I've shared last time. It has a greater part in my walk with the Lord when I was still young (before high school). We were trained to sing hymns during our family devotional. So therefore, I will share one hymn that we usually sang during those times.

Amy has more to share in Signs, Miracles and Wonders.

A gift to remember, a gift of love.

I love to give and receive gifts as well especially if it comes from my one and only. I remember, when my hubby was still courting me, he bought something special for me on Valentine's Day. I could never forget that time, he gave his gift with flowers. Of course, it's not only for singles but also for couples, for everyone who falls in love or will be falling in love soon.

I will try to look for my hubby too and see the one he likes, I'm always excited to give him something special and unique on this special day for lovers.


Painful Experience

I had a painful experience last Wednesday, hubby brought me to the hospital because I was bleeding, after the doctor's check up she found out that I had myoma and we started to pray that the baby is safe. That was a painful experience I have had after I gave birth to AJ our second son 7 years ago. A lot of blood came out and I was really suffering from the pain.

Then, I asked my hubby to pray for me, I had also asked AJ to lay his hand over my tummy. I couldn't sleep nor move to the left or to the right. The pain was so heavy that I couldn't move my body. One thing I told my baby, just to hold on and take care because Mama is carrying the pain and with the help of Jesus I will be healed. Indeed, after few hours of struggle, I was okay and was able to walk and take myself for few minutes and I felt restored.

The next day, there's a little bit of pain but the blood was still coming out, I can't stop it just like a woman's monthly period. A lot of blood came out but the Lord was giving a hope to trust in His care - that I need not to worry because He is in control. So I have that peace that only God can give and I hold on to His promises.

Friday Photoflashback

Friday Photo Flashback
This picture was taken 3 years ago, when we invited our students to dine with us. AJ was 4 years old this time. We love to bless our students and everytime we have a chance to share the love of Jesus we did it through a dinner fellowship and share happy moments together. We were sitting here after dinner and they took us a picture.

Plan to have Camping?

Camping is one of the things my hubby loves and longs to do. When he was still working as army instructor he used to go up mountains or down the beach with some friends and did the hiking. Even when he was a teacher, he used to go with his co-teachers and go out for camping and they usually bring some things they needed outdoor.

Just recently, he was attracted to a camping equipments and he asked me if he could buy one like outdoor grills, outdoor chairs, tables and mats. It looks great because you can bring it anywhere. We could even bring it when we plan to go to the beach. It's on sale and he loves to have it. It's good to have this kind because we will not worry about going out. You can even choose which brands you like. Then, I get excited to buy these kinds of outdoor materials for our family. Hope we could have it soon. These outdoor grills I want to have for my family outdoor activities. We planned to have an outdoor vacation this summer and I guess, we need to prepare now. How about you? Are you planning to have a picnic or outdoor activities this summer? You will be needing these things too right?


Word-Filled Wednesday

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding
In all your ways acknowledge Him
and He will make your path straight.
Prov. 3:5-6
I chose this verse today because of my situation. You may know it below when you continue to read my blog. Please help me pray for peace in my heart as we keep on praying for the best from the Lord. The verse that encourages me this time and I cling to God's promises.

A Day to Remember

Yesterday I fetched AJ from school. We were walking because our house is nearby. On the way I told AJ to run crossing the street because the street is clear. When suddenly, while we were in the middle of the road, there's a motorcycle coming so quickly that I hold AJ back, I shouted and looked at the driver but he was running so fast while looking at my angry face. It's good that cars were not coming that very hour while we were stocked up in the middle of the road. I felt the angel holding us back without moving.

I had a little stress and in the evening I can't sleep till midnight. I thought of my baby, early morning I felt something coming out, when I checked there was blood coming out of me. I immediately asked hubby to bring me to the hospital. Then we waited for awhile, the doctor came and when I told her, she checked my womb via ultrasound. It's really good that I need not to travel again for another place for ultrasound. There inside her clinic I was checked and she told me that there is a tumor inside (known as Myoma), she said it always happens to married women. I was upset a bit, but when she said that it's not cancerous, I was not scared and felt relaxed.

She continued to tell us that we need to wait for another week to check again because the baby was too small (only 2cm) while the myoma is already 7.8cm. According to her, there were 2 things that would happen: either the baby will become bigger that would make the myoma become smaller or the other way around, that the baby will not grow because of the myoma extending it's space to my womb and the baby will be miscarriage. The cause of the blood was from the mayooma and not from the baby. Hopefully, with prayers that the baby will grow and the mayooma will be gone, but not our will but God's will be done!

It's scary but we have nothing to do about it this time, we just trust the Lord for everything. He knows the best!

A Courageous and Faithful Wife

I'm inspired to write today so I decided to write again about a Mom who always think of her children and family. She desires the best for her children and I guess, all mothers have the same desire like hers. What I'm referring to is Mommy Seiko, a Filipina who had caught the eye and heart of a Japanese businessman.

While I was reading her true-to-life story, I cried and felt the pain she have had. Yes, it's true, it's not so easy as what she said to be a wife of the last Samurai. She struggled a lot especially the discrimination, looking down to her, and the like which made her feel down and frustrated. But she was blessed by a loving, understanding and thoughtful hubby.

Amidst her struggles and frustrations in life, she still hopes for the best and she never gave up. She keeps moving and face problems everyday with courage. I could say, she is a courageous Filipina I knew - her story tells. She is a God-fearing woman, and had 4 children which she called her pride and glory. I'm inspired by Mommy Seiko's motto: I keep my Head High and Never Give up on my Dreams.

Aside from being a loving wife to her husband and a caring mother to her children, she is also a good cook, she prepares a lot of food on the table, which needs to be presentable, tasty and delicious for Japanese to look at and not only one menu but many in one setting. Try to check and read Seiko's Diary, she will inspire you more.


Anak ni Kulapo - It's fun

Another blog that I wanted to highlight today is a Filipino blog of course written by a Filipino with a Filipino heart and written in Filipino language, lol! I'm not sure if you have heard and read his blog, I did! Anak ni Kulapo is a Filipino blog full of humor and stories that will make you laugh. I enjoyed listening to the music as well when I opened the blog. I love it because I'm a Filipino. It's a nice blog and it's a different kind of blog where you can gain insights too as you keep on reading. Everything is written in Filipino and I guess most of the visitors are Filipinos. It's fun reading his posts.

He already sponsored many blog contests. And not only that, he is always the major sponsor. He had been blessing many bloggers in the blogging industry. His humor made people laugh. Filipino bloggers enjoyed and kept visiting his blog. Sya'y makatao at maka-Pilipino. He makes people enjoy while reading through his posts. He had other blog written in English of course like I am Buraot. It's fun to surf Anak ni Kulapo blogs. He got a lot of insights for Filipinos to think. If you want to laugh or be free for a while try visiting his blog and you will enjoy.

Filipinos are everywhere in the world and if they find this site I guess, they will enjoy reading his posts which is written in Filipino.


A Generous Blogger

Have you heard about Buraot? He is a Filipino blogger who loves to express himself in writing. I have seen his blog for a lot of times sponsoring many bloggers. He loves to sponsor a lot of contests in the blogging world. He had been blessing a lot of bloggers. His blog sponsored many contests and just imagine, he is not tired of sponsoring? Again and again he is on the top list of sponsors.

The first time I saw his blog when I joined the first contest. Buraot sponsored many already, not just a sponsor but he's always a major sponsor. That means he's always giving the best. Wow, he gave more and he's always willing to sponsor a lot of bloggers. Another thing I've noticed in his blog is that he uses clear template. He writes clearly with links, if you have noticed he wrote something but you need to click the link to read the whole story. I'm a newbie with this thing and as I was checking his blog I find it interesting to see that a Filipino can really do better. He's doing his best in writing articles that helps us understand what's going on in our country even if you are working outside. He's a blogger who knows how to pacify the truth, who clearly writes the real issue and the truth.

Aside from this, Buraot is also the generator of entredropper - I tell you he is one of a kind who could make things possible as far as internet and computers are concerned. He had gone a long way and had blessed a lot for his generosity. Try to check this site and see for yourself what's going on. He's a Filipino who soar high in the blogging world.

Cheap Business Cards

I'm fond of buying cheaper things like cheap post cards, cheap greetings cards, cheap business cards but still with high quality. Everytime I visited some stores I usually check the cheaper cards or anything cheap, it's worth it. I like everything's cheap, I guess, you like it too.

Don't you know that there is one making cheaper business cards? You can ask them the way you like it but they use quality materials, they specialize in business cards which is the need of the business companies these days. Those involve in business always think of buying cheap business cards to be given to their clients, right? They look for business cards with high quality yet cheap.

I remember my sister loved making cards, she sold it and enjoyed her business. We had also the opportunity to make cards like birthday cards and cards for all occasions. However, business cards are different. It needs to be specialized, can be processed quickly that the customer will be satisfied, and can be designed online. This is very interesting, I wanted to have cheap business cards too for my on going business.


Yummy Sunday - AJ's 7th Birthday

It's AJ's 7th birthday last Wednesday. So today I'm posting one of the gifts he got from a friend. Our friend came late and brought this kind of chocolate so we were not able to share it with others. And first time for us to eat this kind, lol! So his kuya ate a lot.

Time flies so fast that my baby is now a kid. More Yummy Sunday posts with Perfectly Blended.


Need Insurance?

Insurance is very vital now adays, it helps in so many ways like when a person encountered an accident. Here in Thailand there are a lot of accidents happened especially the reckless students driving in a motorcycle. They really need temporary insurance in case of emergency. All of us need it and we chose the one that really pays.

There are also a kind of insurances for vans, cars, bikes and other vehicles. When a car met an accident the insurance could help. There is a flexible insurance to suit that need. It's fast, instant online cover. Wow, this is great. And besides, they even provide insurance for home or business. A temporary insurance for only 28 days is provided for those who are using someone's car too. If you are driving a van or a car for few days, this will fit your need. And more so, if you are having a test drive this temporary insurance will really meet your need. It's safe and flexible. I'm glad to know this kind of insurance, we really need this. This is really helpful for those who are just starting to drive or even using other cars. So why wait, try to check and see for yourself. You will really love it. I will also tell my friends about this kind of insurance. I know, they would like to have it too.

Happy 7th Birthday AJ

Seven years ago, I was carrying my baby, our second child, we call him AJ (Asher Josh). He's quite big now, he grows tall and ate a lot as well. He has a lot of humor that a lot of times we laughed at him. When he prays, he clearly talked to Jesus just like talking to his friend. Today was just like yesterday, he has grown a lot and he turns 7 this very day. The Lord has blessed us with AJ and his kuya Em2 (Emerald John) too. We really thank the Lord for them. I used to call AJ baby, but now he doesn't want to be called as such, he always remind me that he is now a kid.

AJ joins in a running contest last year and
he won a prize and was given a medal
He also likes to draw and write something
He also loves to play
He looks so different here, lol!
He enjoyed his party. But we waited for quite sometime before his visitors came. We invited some of his close friends but only few came. He was asking me; Why I don't have visitors Mama? Because others came late already. So he went with his father to our neighbors who became his friends few years ago, and many came. And we was so happy seeing his friends.
Here are some of the food prepared:
Sorry I forgot to take a picture of the ice cream and french fries. When I remembered it - it's finished.

Office Supplies We Needed

Last year, hubby was responsible for the office work. He helps with our manager working everyday. I was responsible for teaching students and hubby helped me in preparing the materials. We did English Camps to different places so our hands were full. During the preparation for our English Camps, we bought a lot of office supplies like stickers, pens, magnets, rubber stamps and the like for our students to enjoy while learning. We enjoyed buying the supplies to different stores because the supplies are not available in one store, we can't find all the materials we needed. It's fun though it's tiring. We spend time looking for rubber stamps and other materials which are very necessary for our camp.

We're quite busy last summer, we had students the whole day until evening. Our day was so full that we can't even prepare for dinner, lol! However, we enjoyed our work. Our students also enjoyed and we had a lot of fun. We had more than one camp so we were able to use all the materials we bought. I look forward for another camp this year. We're excited to buy office supplies again. I like the rubber stamps it's unique and the students like it especially the young ones.

Yummy Sunday - Fruits

Since the first week of this month when I knew that I am having a baby again, I started to be aware of my health. If you have seen in my posts, I'm pregnant every 7 years, and I'm glad it's the Lord's number. Anyway, I started to think of what I'm going to eat to benefit the baby. Then I discovered while surfing that I need more iron and other vitamins for my baby. I ate oranges and apples a lot. According to the study, Vitamin C helps maximize iron absorption, so orange is the best. Aside from oranges, other fruits like strawberries, grapefruit and tomato juice are also high in iron.

So I decided to post oranges and apples for my Yummy Sunday post this week. Hope you like fruits too. A Taste of My Life has more to share. Try to join, you still have time to share your yummy photos.

Women's Beauty Secret

When I was in the Phil. last year my sister and I went to a hair specialist and beauty salon. My sister treated me so I didn't worry about the expenses. We enjoyed the hair massage, relaxing the hair, foot massage and the like. Oh how I love those days, it's a nice feeling when you are treated well like a princess, right? You will just sit down and relax and often times I slept, lol! We went there a lot of times just to relax and the beautician treated us from head to foot.

One day, my sister showed us her new Hair extensions, it was her desire ever since to have a beautiful hair. The hair experts are really good according to my sister, you are in good hands and you wanted to go back again and again. She bought it when she was still working abroad. We were all amazed at her new look, she really looked differently with her Hair extensions, then she brought me again to the beauty salon and treated me again for hair straightening. I was really treated well and I had a good time spending my vacation there with my family. How about you? Do you love your hair to be treated well? I guess so, it's our beauty secret.

On Business Cards

Five years ago, when I was still a teacher in the Phil., my sister was making business cards. I helped her sell to my co-teachers and students as well. I find it interesting at first because I have something earned and my sister enjoyed too. But the thing is, she had a hard time when there are changes or the customer wanted a new design. It's not so easy to do it again, so gradually she gave up to it.

It's better if my sister discovered this business cards online, it's easy and she doesn't need to spend on expensive computer software or waste her time on unhurried graphic designers to get the perfect business cards to represent her business! Everything she needs to design her business cards online is provided.

My sister loves business and any opportunity given to her, she will easily grab it. This is the best place for her to open a business cards online. Making business card design, and online business card printing. She loves this kind of business because she was doing this before. I will start convincing her to start making business online and I will ask her to be her business partner.


The Signboards

I took these photos from another friend and made us laugh while reading. I decided to share it with you just to make you laugh too. Can you imagine these words? lol! It's fun but there's truth. Hope you enjoy your weekend. Blessings to all.


Friday Photoflashback - Cooking Time

Friday Photo Flashback
I love to cook. Everytime we have visitors or friends. I would love to cook for them. In 2007, we're already in Thailand, we had visitors and I prepared something for them. I cooked Tom Yam Kung and spicy Steamed fish. Hubby was helping me prepared something but most of the time giving me a smile and making my day bright as always, lol!

You can see more Photoflashback Friday with Alicia. Come on you still have time like me, hehe!


Healthy Fruits

Eating fruits and vegetables are the best recommended not only by doctors but also by a lot of friends and family members especially when you are expecting or having a baby to take care of. I'm a lover of fruits and vegies, I love eating most of it except for durian which my mouth won't accept nor swallow it. A lot of my friends reminded me to eat a lot of fruits and vegies and I don't have any problem with that.

Anyhow, fresh fruits and vegies are the best source of vitamins and minerals that our body needs. It gives a lot of nutrients that keeps our body from any sickness or health problems. It can also help make our baby grow while waiting for the expected date. I enjoy eating, the only problem is when I don't have enough to buy, lol!

Although hubby asks me not to stay in the computer all the time, I can bear to check some opportunities if ever to help me earn. At least a bit I could have gotten, huh! So blogging is a bit slow this time. I'm so sorry if I could not visit you sometimes. I need to refrain from using my cp most of the time. But I will try sometimes if I have a chance.

Looking for Comfortable Apartments?

My youngest sister Pinky is always traveling. She is working in a cruise ship. She usually travels to different places, different countries around the world. She also met people and friends inside the ship. She loves traveling. One time she was on her way home and she missed her flight because she is just new in the place and she didn't know where to go at first. Then she looked for an apartment but she finds it hard to look for it because it's quite expensive just to stay for a night. She was looking for a comfortable and reasonable place but she could hardly find one. Because of that experience, I used to surf the net and helped her find an apartment online to help her find her way if she had that same experience.

Glad to hear this rent apartment in Minsk a very nice place at a reasonable price. It's a short-term rent apartments, they have different types of apartments either single room, two-room or five-room apartments. I'm excited to tell her because they even provide other services like visa support, transfer and other services. Inside the apartment they also provide beauty salons, restaurants and the like. In case of emergency they have medical centers. I guess, my sister would love to rent apartment in Minsk next time she travels. She really enjoys traveling and see different fascinating and wonderful places around the world. I am sure she would love this place.


A Traveling Sister

I have a sister who loves to travel anywhere in the world. She travels a lot since 2005. She even visited different places and met friends of all ages. She loves meeting people. She is our dearly sister, she's very passionate in her work and gives extra effort in everything she does. She is loved by everyone in the family because she loves to share and takes care of everyone. She was a favorite child of my Tatay (father) because she knows how to get any one's attention. Her caring attitude for all of us makes our family loved and treasured her more. She is our youngest sister Pinky.


On Credit Cards and Loans

When I was working in the Phil. few years back we were given a privilege to have a credit card. Most of my co- workers enjoyed spending using their credit cards. I did at first but I was so afraid of having bad records and hubby didn't want me to use it again and again. So we decided to use it only when it is necessary. But I remember my co-workers spending a lot above their means which led them to a bad credit. They had many credit cards but bad records, a lot of banks refused to give them credit cards anymore.

I thought that having credit cards before was a good way of spending because I saw it from my co-workers. They enjoyed a lot for the first few months, but I discovered later that they were already suffering from debts. They were even called by some banks for personal investigation. I was so scared during that time that I decided to stop my credit card after using it for a year.

It's good to know that there are personal loans for people with bad credit. My co-workers need this. It is credit loans and debt consolidation. It can help them free from loans and bad credit. They will be freed from high interests and worries too. They can even check online, it's simple, fast, and secure. I will try to share this to my co-workers and let them know about the benefits if they will join. There are a lot of them and I guess, they will agree with me and wanted to have this.

My Pregnancy and the coming Baby

As I was told you in my latest post, I am pregnant every 7 years. I find it interesting though a bit nervous because of my age. But I'm still praying for the best. Being pregnant is not easy. It entails patience and perseverance to take care of the baby inside my womb and the desire to carry it through for 9 months.

I like this Baby and child site that talks about babies, pregnancy, getting pregnant and other topics about babies. It helps me to prepare for my coming baby and what to prepare, or even what to do. I already forgot some tips because as what I have said I'm only pregnant every 7 years. Now, my eldest son is already 14, turning 15 this coming May. It's not a joke to face and take care another baby at this stage. So I need to check from time to time the different sites to help me feel at ease and prepared. The experience I have had before may not be the same today.

Baby and child care should be given importance. While I was checking this site, I find it interesting to see different tips to a pregnant woman like me. For those Mommies who are on the way, try this one and you will also enjoy checking like me.


Children's Day (part 1)

Today is holiday in Thailand. Children of all ages gather and visited different places and enjoy games being prepared for them. Most of the schools and universities all over the country are busy giving gifts to all the children, allowing them to enjoy the activities or anything that the children are fond of. This day is known as "Children's Day". Every first Saturday of January they celebrate this occasion for children to enjoy. My kiddos love this day. They went out and had some fun with some local children. They went to a nearby university. I will tell you later and show you the picture if they went home.


Reading Eyeglasses

Since last year I had been looking for the right doctor for my eyes. It's not so easy to find the right one especially when you are out of the country. I visited an eye doctor once but I failed, she didn't understand the real issue for my eye problem.

I had a difficulty in reading since this year, I guess I need reading eyeglasses. I was glad to see this Stahl Eye center. A center specifically designed for patients who have eye problems. They have a procedure known as NearVision Conductive Keratoplasty (NearVision CK)it can reduce the need for readers for months at a time. It is done in a doctor’s office in about 20 minutes and the recovery can be as little as a few hours. Can you imagine this? NearVision CK normally has no pain and had been serving patients for more than 35 years. I'd better check this out. This is the center that I had been looking for.


Photoflashback Friday

Friday Photo Flashback
It's our first time to travel abroad as a family in 2005 and first time too for us to visit the Malaysian Twin Tower, Kuala Lumpur. That was an amazing trip. An unforgettable experience Hubby was holding AJ, who was 2 years old then. Em2 was only 10 yrs old. Oh how time flies. Now my kiddos are quite big. We enjoyed that time.

You could see a lot of visitors coming. Foreigners from different countries came just to see this one of the tallest buildings in the world. So nice to be there on top on the 110th storey-building.

More Photoflashback Friday with Alicia. It's fun to join.

The theme for this week is New Year's list since the aroma of New Year is still fresh. Sharing our new goals, events that happened and achievements of our kids and our family as well. Mommy Moments is still up and we can share some of our goals this year.

There is a blast in our new year. Unbelievable but it's true. You can read the link if you want to know the details. Yes, there are changes in our family.

Anyway, without further ado, here are some of my lists:

1. AJ is turning 7 on the 20th of this month- we are glad that we sent him to a Thai school because last Christmas we went to a Thai restaurant and we need to order but to write our order in Thai, a Malaysian friend who can read Thai looks for the food that we like, we have nothing to do because we can't read anything. Then we were surprised that AJ was the one who wrote in Thai, we enjoyed seeing him writing our orders. We all enjoyed the food.

2. We have added member in our family, now I discovered, I'm pregnant every 7 years. What a blessing from the Lord, a perfect number.

3. Since we came to Thailand, we did homeschooling program for our eldest and last year AJ did the same. We took it there in Manila. The change is that, we will send Em2 (14) back to the Phil. because we just knew last Nov. that the school (ACE) was not recognized by the government there in the Phil. and he needs to get a PEPT exam to be accepted to other schools and to know what level he is qualified to. We're a bit upset last time but the Lord assured us to trust in His care, because everything is under His control.

4. We also hope to travel for our kids to enjoy before Em2 be back to the Phil. Hope I can still travel or go anywhere.

5. Before the year ends, we will go back to the Phil. yehey! to visit our family, church and friends as well and be with Em2, our eldest son. It's quite exciting.

Yes, I agree with Chris, there are many changes this year, as well as exciting and more blessings from the Most High. God is good and faithful.

You still have time, come and join now and share your changes with us too. A blessed day to everyone with Mommy Moments.

A Site that Helps

My teenager is fond of searching googles. Everytime I ask him he knows where to go and to visit. I enjoy asking him now because he knows where to check. To search is not easy, it will take time while reading, and surfing. It's not a joke actually.

Glad to know that there are sites that help in times of need. It's easier and helps in so many ways as far as surfing or searching is concerned. What you need to do is just to download software and you can search so easily without any hassle. I guess, everything is there, it's just a click away. I better ask my teenager to download software sooner for a better result of my searching. It's really a big help for me not to look for hundreds of sites before having the one I really needed.

Watery Wednesday

This happened last August when we went back to the Phil. We visited my mother's (Nanay) place in Guimaras Island. I love this place because it's not polluted, clean and cool.
More Watery Wednesday photos here. See you there.


A Blast of the New Year

I don't know how to share and what to say first about this blast of this new year. But anyway, this is the story before I go further.

My hubby and I were married, I was 26 yrs old then. I was a teacher in a private school during that time, then came our most awaited firstborn son when I was 28yrs old. I had a hard time giving birth and my whole body was changed during that time and because of that I was scared to have a baby again. Several years later, Em2 our eldest son was already 5 years old and hubby wanted to have another baby. He was crying several times when I told him, "no baby again" (hope ladies understand this). My monthly period is coming every month although we're trying and trying and praying, mwahhh! When Em2 reached the age of 7, I became pregnant. It was a shocking moment for me, because I only knew it when I was there in Naga City, Phil. during Palarong Pambansa. During that time I was already teaching in a known public school in Bacolod City (Neg. Occ. High School-known as NOHS) and I was chosen to go with our athletes for the Palarong Pambansa. When I knew it through a preg. test, I hurriedly called my hubby and told him about the matter. He was shouting at the top of his voice on the mobile phone, mwahh! while talking to me. I was 35 during that time.

We were praying for a baby girl but when it's time for our baby to see the world he is going to live in, I had the difficulty of giving birth again, that was the time that the Lord was changing my heart and preparing us for another journey following His will. Then my hubby promised the Lord that it would be okay if our baby is a boy as long as I will give birth normally. Indeed, the Lord answered the prayers of His children. Then AJ came out after 36 hours of labor with 2 induced labor. That was so painful, I could never forget those moments of my life. I was chilling with fever before he came out into the world. You can read the story here. I could never imagine how I survived but I always believe God is always in control and He makes no Mistakes.

I am writing a long story, hehe! Last Dec 23, we celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary. And we were enjoying our blessings from the Lord. Anyway, this is the blast of this new year, yesterday, I went to the doctor for check up and you know what? After 7 yrs again, AJ is turning 7 this 20th of Jan.(next week) and now I'm pregnant again. I don't know what to do, although our kids and especially hubby was still hoping to have another baby girl??? Mwaahh! But the Lord is always reminding me that His plan is perfect and this baby is not an accident...that His will be done. There is a purpose, so I'm starting to rejoice and accept wholeheartedly, I'm now 42 and turning 43 this year. I believe that God has a plan for all mankind, but we were still given a choice to believe Him and follow His will or do our own way. Now, I'm getting excited though anxious at times because of my age. Anyhow, His will be done and I'm following. I was also reminded of the verse "Nothing is impossible with God". When Mary was pregnant with the baby who will become our Saviour and Lord. And she was still a virgin after giving birth until the time that she was married to Joseph. That's impossible, but nothing is hard for the Lord. So, what can you say? Pregnant every 7 years? Will you accept it? Something is happening to our family every 7 years, that's a perfect number - it's the Lord's number!

Promotional Products

I enjoy visiting places with promotions especially on holidays and special occasions. In the Phil. there are a lot of promotions. Either in the big department stores, in the restaurants, or even in hotels. We loved the best buy ever and enjoyed seeing these places too with a lot of people coming. A lot of times, we just come and see if we like the products. And a lot of people do the same thing in our place. I remember last time people came to a big department so early and waited for the time of promotions. Can you imagine coming in the day then wait until 12 midnight for the exact time of the promotion? But people really wait just to get the best buy.

Here in Thailand, you could also have the best buy. They have a lot of surprises every now and it's very cheap. I love promotional products because for me, it's the best and I can still save some amount for another promotions in the future. Here in our place on the other hand, has a lot of promotional items or products. So every time there are promotions, I hurriedly ask my hubby to go to that place and see for ourselves and have the best buy. I also did some online promotions, it's worth it and the best too.


Mellow Yellow Monday

I missed this kind of fruit since we came here in Thailand. My father planted a lot of avocados in the Phil. And if it's time for avocados to bloom and bear fruit, my father would think of us. Then when its time to gather the fruits, we will be the first one to have it. Tatay (my father) planted the best. It's very delicious and yummy to the max. It looks like sticky and we will just peel the skin and ate with sugar or if you are conscious of your health or you don't want to have diabetes someday then you can eat it without sugar. It's really delicious.

That's why when we came here, I had been looking for it. But sad to say, it can only be seen when it's December because it's from other countries and the sad thing is, it's not yummy like what Tatay planted, huhuhu! It has a different taste and at times, you don't want to eat it because of the taste and besides, it's very expensive.

Anyway, this is my Mellow Yellow Monday post this week. Try to visit and join.

Rapid 4 Me

There are a lot of search engines that we could find in the internet during these days. Last time as I was checking and surfing I told my teenager and he showed me some of the possible sites to help me download some of the songs. Then he told me there is one new search engine site which is faster and can help a lot. Then he led me to this Rapid4me search engine. My teenager was really true about this Rapidshare Search Engine. It's really fast and a lot of sites was provided here.

There are times that I need to search for songs or insights on improving good health and other sites that could easily help me when I need to search something. It's good that there are search engines that could easily help me when I need to search for something. Now, I enjoy searching because it's easy and fast.


Yummy Sunday

I don't have anything to share last new year because we didn't prepare anything considering that there are only four of us - it's really different when you are in a different country. Anyway, I took this photo last time during our wedding anniversary. We ate at KFC during lunch time.

Happy New Year to all of you my friends. Blessings to all of you this year and onwards... More posts with Perfectly Blended.

Power Steering Gadgets

My hubby learned driving last year when we were in the Phil. He was forced to do it because we are coming back to another country and he needs to drive. While doing his daily practices, his instructor gave him some tips on how to drive well. He learns fast and enjoys driving around our city. The car was using power steering rack and he likes it. He told me that it's so easy to drive in the city and he doesn't need any force while driving. He was enjoying his driving lessons.

We went back to Thailand and hubby drives always. We have learned many things about gadgets being used for cars. There are so many words being used for this purpose. And we knew it gradually while we use it, what each word mean and the uses of each part. One time, while he was driving he showed us the car that has a power steering rack because the car we are using doesn't have it. He had the hard time turning the car. We usually travel few miles and at times a long distance travel. Now, he desires to have a power steering car to make it easier and he would enjoy while driving. That sounds great, I guess. We started praying about it. And besides it's high quality and we have seen some affordable prices at stake. Hopefully, soon we might have one that we desire.
