Ola! I’m still alive on the planet Earth. Many things happened and different priorities in life that I have to change my focus. But will still keep this blog until I can no longer afford to renew the domain and the hosting. hahaha I also noticed that the last post was almost a year ago. Yaaay!
I will try what I can do to keep this site updated. My life is more updated on Facebook than in any other places on the net. Unfortunately, my updates are for friends only and I don’t add people I don’t know.
I realized that I have this domain/blog for a while now, since November 2005. Sadly, it didn’t go with the flow of revolution on world-wide-web. But who knows, this might change. Anyway, just letting you know that I still exist.
Our house is very messy compared in the past years. I noticed that we have too many clutter of kids toys that we need to sort, but haven’t done anything. Oh yeah, blame it to the mother. lol I’m not a clean freak.. but more on reasonable way of living. Hahaha I don’t follow my kids with sanitizer spray and mop. But we clean it up.. not just too exaggerated or over react when something spilled on the floor. There is nothing wrong to be clean freak, I just don’t have time to be one.
I’m thankful that we don’t have sparkly and squeaky clean home.. but nobody get sick from inside. Like what I said, we are reasonable. We clean the bathroom after use, wash the dishes and our clothes regulary, bring the trash out all the time, our sink is clean, the kids bathe everyday, we vacuum the floor once a month, I dust my table once in a while.. what else? Hahahah We don’t grow bugs, spiders, rats or cockroaches in our house. The thing so hard to do is to sort things out. We’ll try to work on that.
Our garage is full of mess, that I think mostly are my stuff. lol No wonder hubby is always asking to find him t bolts, maybe he will try to organize the mess over there.
Guest post of the week by Deangelo Spencer
The time has rolled around and it is just about time for the Master’s golf coverage to take place. I know what my husband will be doing over Easter weekend. He will be posted up on the couch watch the Master’s coverage on clear internet TV. It is definitely his favorite sporting event of the entire year. I have to say, for someone like myself who doesn’t even like to watch sports on tv, I actually enjoy watching the Master’s tournament. It is the most prestigious title in golf. Everyone wants to win. The Augusta National course when the tournament is played in Augusta, Georgia is absolutely beautiful. The greens and flowers are perfectly groomed. The sun is usually shining and everything looks beautiful. The golf coverage does a pretty good job about telling the history of the Masters Tournament and of the players. Each year I feel like there is a new favorite. I ordered a “Tea Time at the Masters” cook book and am looking forward to fixing some things for my husband out of there while we are watching.
I’m still here.. breathing and enjoying the busy life. Too many struggles but still thankful with other things. Having hard time studying, I feel that my focus is not the one I have in front of me. I’m struggling with loosing weight, no serious illness yet, but alarming and anytime I can get sick or have a heart attack. Scary! And another struggle is at work.. yaaay! Other than the three things I mentioned, I can consider my life perfect! Hahahaah
Okay back to reality.. I’m enjoying some apps on my phone Will try to blog and share about it.

Now that we have four kids, we need to start being smarter about where our money goes. We never planned on having this many children, and it is scary to think about the future. Even though they are still small, we need to start seriously saving for college if we want to be able to help them. They are all very close in age and should be going through one after the other. We started thinking about ways that we could cut our monthly bills, and one of the things that came up was clear tv internet bundle deals. We looked into changing over and found that with a bundle we could save a considerable amount. I am going to start clipping coupons and spending less on beauty treatments for myself. My husband is also going to limit the amount he spends playing golf, which is an expensive hobby. Hopefully we will be able to make enough changes so that the kids won’t have to suffer when it is time for them to go to college. I graduated college with a lot of debt, and I don’t want them to have to go through the same thing.
I received an urgent text from my sister to buy her current car. So she can buy the FIAT Gucci car that she wants. I was laughing when I read her text. I thought it was urgent that she needs money. Anyway, I went online and found the car that she wants. I end up liking it too
Falling in love is easy for this small car that has luxury feels. I like the Pop Hatchback. This has 38mpg just in time for expensive gas price too. Base price starting at $15k.
With the hard hit of our economy, many people lose their job. Not a very nice scenario cause we also experienced it in our household. I understand how difficult it can be to balance life with minimal resources. But with prayers and budgeting, we’re able to make it.
I heard some friends with bachelor’s degree resulting to walmart careers or store stocker as long as they can make money to help them pay their expenses. Some jobs doesn’t require a college degree but you cannot be choosy if you need to make a living. As long as you work and make money, that’s enough. Remember, that your pride cannot feed your family.
I’ve been thinking to upgrade my camera to Nikon full frame (FX format) body J Not that I have money ready to be spent now, but just getting ready for the idea. I realized that out of four Nikon lenses that I own, only one will work on the FX format. So if you’re interested, I’m willing to sell the following:
- Nikon 35mm 1.8 Lens
- Nikon 18-105mm VR Lens
- Nikon 55-200mm VR Lens
I’m glad that I still have three lenses left that will work on the FX format.. but still need to though. I will think of that part once I get the camera.
Please email me or comment below for the questions.
I will go to Florida this weekend with my sister. My first time to be away to family in pleasure mode. Yaaay! I’ve been away with them for several times, and been gone for 3-5 days, but only within California and I need to do it for my work. This time it will be different. Never been to other states except Arizona, and Florida will be the 2nd state I will visit in my 10+ years of living here in the US. So I’m very excited.
I heard that the weather is like what we have in the Philippines, very tropical. So will be bringing more summer clothes.
I want to order this personalized pajamas that me and my sister can wear while enjoying few days there, but wasn’t able to order it on time to arrive before our departure. Anyway, there will always be a next time to get this. Maybe next time we can bring the kids.
