Don’t Talk to Strangers!

Can you still remember such reminder being uttered to you a dozen times by your loved ones especially your parents? As for me, yes. My Mom always reminded us before (back when I am still underage LOL!) to avoid talking to strangers especially if very suspicious looking person. It is indeed better to obey because we just don’t know anymore whom to trust to these days.

A lot of horrible things happened nowadays. You can hear about little girls being molested by an addict guy, a high school beauty being gang raped and the list could go on. By just merely thinking all these things I cannot help but worry for the future of my kids. All I could do now is to pray always for their safety. If our world isn’t that safe anymore right now, how about tomorrow and in the near future? How I wish I could find a particular place where people lives in conscience and respect for their fellowmen.

But as for now I could only say one thing for everyone, Don’t talk to strangers and be safe always. Or why not take this advice?

Praying for Tascam DR40 for my Hubby

I am thankful enough how my Hubby uses his skills to glorify God. Aside from being the sound technician in our church, he also initiated the recording of all the sermons of our preacher. Once the recording is done, he spend time editing the audio by deleting all those words uttered repeatedly and he will also put some soft music in the background. However, since he is just using our laptop in recording, there was an instance once wherein all his recordings were gone. A problem occurred in our laptop that it totally deleted the recording file that he did one particular Sunday. I told him he should have some sort of a backup for all his recordings or better yet he should use a separate audio recorder to ensure that all his record files will be safe and such problem will not happen again. Wish I could have enough funds to buy tascam dr40 handheld digital audio recorder so he won’t have a hard time also bringing our laptop every Sunday.

Tascam DR-40 4-Track Handheld Digital Audio Recorder

By the way, all his edited preaching audios can be downloaded through Sound Cloud just type BLESSED HOPE on the search box.

Zinc for My Babies

Because of the unpredictable weather these past few days, cough and cold seems to invade humanity. These are the contagious diseases that I hated the most to affect my babies and yet it really does. But whenever my babies got cough and cold, I do not give them cold or cough medicines anymore. Before, I gave cough medicine plus antibiotic for my baby boy but I realized that it could cause an adverse reaction to him so I stop. Right now, I just continue giving them Vitamin C with Zinc. I read from an article that zinc can cure cold and even flu. Studies show that zinc have effects against viruses. It may not help preventing my babies from cold but at least it will shorten cold symptom duration. By the way, I gave them Ceelin Plus with Zinc. Health is my number one priority for my family.

Take care everyone!

My Ideal Home

Being an Architectural Drafting graduate, I truly appreciate great architecture designs. However, building our houses following a standard architectural designs can be too costly especially now that the construction materials are really expensive. But, being creative can do so many wonders even if you knew only a few about architectural standards. I was indeed fascinated with this house built by a very creative father. He designed this fairy tale home for his family. Oh by the way, have you watched that movie of Shreik? I guess it is where Simon (the owner/designer) got his idea.

All pictures are credited to him (the owner):

This is the floor plan:

And this is the exterior:

But there’s more in the interior!

A beautiful view in another home that Simon is helping build for someone else. (Originally, this was mistakenly identified as a photo of the home he and his family are living in.)

And wanna know the Architect who built this amazing creation in just FOUR MONTHS? None other than the owner himself!

Simon Dale, his wife Jasmine Saville, and their two children.

I wish I could have the same home design though it is quite impossible to build such kind in the city. But in fairness, the fairy tale home is indeed a great masterpiece!

Introducing: Eldermark

I am so happy that with my eight years in teaching College students, I grow in terms of maturity. Who wouldn’t? You’ll be dealing mostly spoiled brat young adults who tried to speak their mind even if it is not actually right. But no matter how spoiled brat they might be, I am proud to say that most of those who go back to school to visit me after finishing their studies are already very successful one with their chosen career.

The latest one who visited me often is Felipe (not his real name to protect his identity. He graduated in Education yet he didn’t apply his field. Instead, he is now working as a Medical Representative (Med Rep) of a very respectable pharmaceutical company. As for me, he just did the right thing. Felipe isn’t really that confident to become a teacher and he says he is more  into Sales and travels than being surrounded with unruly students. He comes to school often to conduct survey or lectures among students including mine. I just admired how he was able to earn a lot as Med Rep.

Being a Med Rep according to him needs a lot of considerations.  Good thing his employer gave them high end gadget with free limited services such as iPod where he could actually do his task anywhere, anytime. Well, I just hope he could visit the site at www.eldermark.com so he will get more ideas about what I am talking about.

Hello 2014!

Finally 2013 is over, let’s welcome 2014!

2013 is such a challenging year I should say. I really do not have a lot of good things to say except that my patience, tolerance and self-control have gone beyond its limit. Suffice to say, I am totally at loss in 2013. Maybe the only good things that happened to me last year was the birth of my little angel, Jerusha Gabrielle. Nevertheless, I am still thankful to God for the strength and wisdom that He has given me all the way. Despite the challenges, I was able to stand up and moved on. I just hope that everything will be best in 2014. I am praying for an appointment with the DepEd in 2014, I am also praying for good health for my entire family. May God gives me more courage and patience to hold on with life’s adversaries. And may He renew my conviction and faith as well as elf-control against temper.

Anyway, happy New Year to one and all!

Hello December!

I can still vividly remember in my younger years how much I anticipated the month of December. Even as early as 1st day September where in some FM stations played Christmas songs already, I cannot contain my happiness anymore. I really love December. I remember how I prepared myself for the 9 Mornings with my family. That was really a very unforgettable experience.

However, as time goes by, now that I get older, things quite change. I do not have 9 Mornings anymore. The anticipation slowly fades. The kind of excitement that I once felt is diminishing. I really do not know. For the past two Christmas celebrations I felt like everything has changed. Or was it only me who really change?

Well, sometimes in our life, we tend to come to a point where we are quite confused and really do not know what to do. Sigh, I thought it’s only the teenagers who have such struggles. Anyway, I wish this December will change my bad perceptions.

Are You a Dog Lover?

We used to have a dog when I was still a kid but my Mom gave it away when my sister got bitten by a stray dog and she was afraid that our dog might cause harm to others too. Well, we are not really a family of dog lovers. I appreciate high breed dogs but it never occurred to me to raise one.  Besides, raising dogs need a lot of patience. I can’t stand long with barking dogs, I easily get annoyed whenever I heard one. It is not easy to train and tame dogs especially the wild ones. We used to have a neighbor before who keeps not one but many dogs in her house. According to her she loves their company. She felt more secured with her dogs. Well, I cannot protest against her because it was her right anyway. I just hate it every time they got a visitor because they just cannot control the dogs. Wish all dog owners will learn how to train their dogs from barking too much especially during night time where everybody has to rest. Or better yet, they should purchase barking dog collars which enables to stop dog from howling.

Static Bark Control Collars

Barking dog collars is available online so there’s no reason for them (the dog owners) not to have one.

V for Victory

T’was a sunny day on a Sunday and it’s Mom & co.’s Victory Party! Barely one month after the election, they finally have their Victory Party at Sonrisa Vista Resort in Bayabas, CDO. It was my first time to be there. The place was good though it’s too crowded because it’s Sunday. It is not just a beach resort, they have aviary, an Indian House made of colored roof but with Air conditioner, a bamboo cottages, and a mini wild park. I can say that the resort is conducive for large gathering with their bigger open cottages. The ambiance is quite good too. But what excite me the most was that it was my Babie Gregory’s first swimming experience! He was a little bit scared good thing his cousins were with him.

I am looking forward of going back there for a night swimming and try to stay at their Indian House… was it called a tepees? Hmm, let me do the research later. LOL

Ballroom Dance Anyone?

Way back in College, I enjoyed English subject, I enjoyed my Drawing class, I learn to enjoy Math subject. I also enjoyed my Physical Education Class. I love Individual and Dual Sports but am not just good at all of them especially in our Ballroom Dance Lesson. I remember how I cried because I failed to perform the Rumba and Foxtrot. I do better in Cha cha and Swing but not with the first two. Good thing my dance partner was supportive enough that he was able to convince me by assuring me that he will lead me the steps. Well, that ballroom dance lessons earned me a B grade during our Final Performance Examination. Hmm, not really bad at all.

What a pose! Wish i could learn to dance someday

Well, actually ballroom dancing is a good sport. But not all are gifted with a graceful move like me so I better stick to where I truly excel: Drawing!
