Rustic Furniture for my In-laws

My in -laws asked me last week to help them purchase some furniture for their new home. They specifically want to enhance their receiving area and their dining niche. So I took them to a local furniture shop to look for something that they really want and in just a few minutes, my mother in law saw this rustic furniture and fell in love with it the moment she saw it. It was so unique that she was so excited to show it to us. When I saw it, I decided that I want to have one myself too! Lol! :)

We Love Diamonds

My friend and her girlfriend had been together for the fast five years now. Their relationship had been stronger than before. Last night, my friend told me that he wants to marry her and want to spend to rest of his life with her. So I told him that why don’t you propose and give her some loose diamonds than a ring as your engagement gift. Whoa! That would be a very unique and a very expensive gift too!lol! Right? ;)

Women just loves diamonds! :)

Accutane Lawsuit

As I’ve said earlier, I was browsing the internet for an assignment that my dad asks me to accomplish. But as I was about to open a website about it, I came across an article about Accutane lawsuit.

I never thought that Accutane can have devastating effects on ones health. Well, I first heard about it from a friend who was planning to buy and take it as his acne treatment. He asks me some advice about it and good thing, I told him to read reviews and testimonies first or ask a dermatologist about it. Good thing, his dermatologist told him not to take such for the treatment is still under evaluation. A few weeks after upon consulting, news and articles like what I’m reading right now is condemning Accutane. This called vitamin can cause bowel movement diseases and due to the prominent effects of this treatment, lawyers were hired to settle severe cases of this dangerous substance. Oh my, thank God my friend was saved from it. Now, time to check out this article on Trasylol lawsuit.

A New Closet for Us

This week will be pretty busy for my husband. As we have agreed, he will make a new wooden closet for our bedroom. Our old is really of age (20 years old) and really needs to be replaced.

We tried browsing the internet and saw some closet with organizer.

They won’t exactly look like this because he drawn a better closet than this. :) I’ll just post the finish product after my husband with the help of his dad is done with it.

Gold Bullion | New Investment

Hi guys! I’m still awake. I was out online the whole day for I have some important errands to attend to. That’s why tonight is the night for me to search gold bullion for my dad.

Yup! My dad is actually asking me to assists him in buying bullion as his first ever mineral investment. You see he has entered the investment thingy a few years ago and he started off with stocks. He was doing great until this date but when he saw my post about the great benefits of investing of precious minerals like silver, gold and diamonds he got really interested to the point he called me if what I wrote was really real and I have actual proofs. Well, I said yes of course, for some of my friends and bosses has invested on them and are earning very well from it. I also said that if only I have enough money to investment on such I won’t hesitate. So, 3 days after uttering those words my dad called me and was convince to join the pack. Good daddy! :)

The Joy of Online Shopping

Shopping online is one of the most convenient ways to buy what you need without the hassle of going to the store and falling on a long line to the cashier just to pay for your loots. Many people nowadays have been doing this since the booming of the internet. That is because many sellers has set their shop online for many people has been busy with their work or lives thereby making them less visible in the outside world.

I myself was an avid online shopper and I can say that the convenient of shopping in the internet is the best experience ever especially if you have a coupons! lol! :)

Acne Cleansers

I’ve noticed that my hubby has been scratching his head for about a week now. I asked him what is wrong with his head and he told me that he doesn’t know. So, I took a look at his head and saw that there were red bumps on it. I ask him if they were itchy and painful, he said that they are a bit itchy.

That morning, we went to our dermatologist and told her about the itch. She said that they were acne and we have nothing to worry about. She gave us some acne cleansers for him to apply for a week. Urgh! I just wish hubby gets well very soon.

Have you heard about the miracle benefits of juvederm? Well, if not you better read about this post and lean about juvederm.

Juvederm is now being called as a miracle gel where it is injected into the mid-dermis of the face to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. The effect of it is like lifting the skin of your face to show your young looking skin. Yup! You can be young again with this treatment. A miracle indeed isn’t?

He’s really dedicated to loose weight for him to achieve the body that he really wanted. Good thing, he was able to get some tips and read reviews on diet pill that has justified its effectiveness. Now, he’s on his way for a perfectly shaped body!:)

Not as Good | Resident Evil After Life

At last we we’re able to watch the “After Life” sequel of Resident Evil.The movie date push thru last night and I can say that I’m not really ‘thrilled' with the film. Maybe there were less action scenes and horrifying views from undead. Plus the fact that there were too many slow mos which cause a less thrilling action scenes ( for me ).

I don’t really want to tell about it more further for I may spoiled the movie but overall the movie was just OK ( plain ok) nothing spectacular unlike the first 3 sequel. In short, the “Infection”, “Apocalypse” and “extinction” were much better than “After Life”. That's all I can say.

Craving for a Drift Burger

I want to munch this delicious burger! Urgh!

I’m actually trying to control my food intake for my tummy is really swelling with fats. I don’t know if I should say that I’m getting fat if only the fat on my stomach is accumulating.

Yes! I really want to gain some pounds because I’m honestly underweight. The good news is a gain a pound or two but the only problem is the weight gain came from my overweight stomach! Urgh! But still I want to eat this burger asap!

Maybe a quick weight loss diet might help me trim my stomach – after eating this drift burger. Lol! ;)

Welcome Home

My SIL Avegail and her cute daughter Erika came home from Canada yesterday morning. It was actually a surprise visit for my in-laws for they never had an idea that they will be coming home this year. Only hubby and I knew that date of their arrival and had kept it a big secret until yesterday. :)

It was 2 in the morning when they arrive, my SIL went directly to her parent’s room and immediately greeted them hello. They were so shock and thought everything was just a dream. But when we opened the lights they finally realized that their eldest daughter and their first grand daughter have arrived from Ontario! :)

Everyone was laughing and I could see in their eyes the joy of being together once again. I was happy too of course! :)

With that, I would like to greet my SIL Gail and my niece Erika a warm “WELCOME HOME”! :)

Takuyaki | Dare to Try?

It’s Sunday once again! Time to spend the day with my family and blogs. Lol! :)

Yup! It’s only on Sunday that I can get enough time for my blog updates but of course that’s not a whole day obligation. My primary task on this day is to spend a quality time with my boys.

Just like what we did this morning, we pulled our inflatable pool outside for a swim. Aj enjoyed the splash for it has been months since we played with it. In a little while, we’ll be driving to the mall to eat Takuyaki.;)

Yup! Its hubby’s favorite and (I think )I do not really like it. Lol! Why? Because it’s an octopus dish! Eww! I haven’t eaten an octopus since the day I was born! But hubby said it is yummy so I might take a little bite later after we’re done buying the acne lotion of my SIL.

Here’s how it looks.

Looks delish, I just hope I can swallow! :)

Best French Fries under 100 Bucks

I will never go wrong if I say that most of us love French fries. :)

I’ve tasted different kinds of such with different sizes and flavors as well and I could say that most of them have satisfied my cravings. But when I browsed the internet this morning, I discovered that I had only eaten a few of the most delicious.

That’s why as one of my foodie goal this month is to eat these “said to be” most delicious fries below Php100 by

Here are the TOP 3 on the lists.


Location: 16 East Kapitolyo Drive, Barangay Kapitolyo, Pasig City
Tel. no. 501-0137
Open from 11:00 a.m. to 1 a.m. daily

Fry factor: At P75, Charlie's Fresh Fries is worth every centavo. For starters, the thick hand-cut slices are fried and salted just right. They're crunchy outside and tasty inside. These are the fries you go for when you're craving for some unadulterated potatoes. They're the real deal. They don't get soggy when they grow cold. In fact, the fries retain their tastiness hours after they're cooked.

Foodie fuss: Charlie's should consider providing take-out packaging for these treats. When we ordered them for to-go, they were just placed in a brown bag—something you can easily overlook because the fries taste great.

2.) NYFD (New York’s Fries and Dips)

Location: 4th Floor, Glorietta 4, Ayala Center, Makati City
Open from 10:00 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily

Fry factor: NYFD'S fries are the kind of fries that'll have you asking, "Where have you been all my life?" A large bucket costs P80 and comes with two dips. (We chose Pesto and Garlic Parmesan.) Tall and thick, the fries and the dip make for a fast meal.

Foodie fuss: Other dips are Red Hot Chili Pepper, Pepper Steak, Hawaiian Curry, Garlic Wasabi, Ranch, Honey Mustard, Cheese, Barbeque, Lemon Herb, and Bacon Onion Tomato.

3.) SANGO!

Location: Power Plant Mall, Rockwell Center, Makati City
Tel. no. 501-3106
Open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday to Thursday and 11 a.m. to midnight, Friday to Sunday

Fry factor: Sango's large fries, which cost P75, make up for being short and fat with its earthy taste. A little bit of salt is enough to bring out the taste of these mildly crunchy fries. Who needs ketchup when fries taste this good?

Foodie fuss: These large fries could be "larger"…but we're only bringing that up because we want more. P.S. Ever heard about the paper bag fat test? A look at the oil stains on the paper pouch above is enough to make one feel guilty about the fat content, but at No.3, we daresay it's worth breaking your diet for.


Location: Space 2-024 Glorietta 5, Ayala Center, Makati City
Tel. no. 501-3106
Open from 10:00 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily

Fry factor: If you're looking for extra crunchy fries with a chili kick, then Army Navy's P60 Freedom Fries is perfect for you. These thin-cut fries cater to grown-up taste buds--what with its persistent spiciness. You'll be hooked at first munch.

Foodie fuss: These fine fries are served on a nondescript white cardboard container so it doesn't look promising at first glance. Thankfully, one is proven wrong.

You can try them as well and we’ll buzz more about them after they filled our stomachs! ;)

The Side Effects of Hardwork

In my opinion - I'm a hardworking mom. :)

I usually work in the morning at the office and get home at night where I still work for with my online tasks. I’m usually up until midnight and quite frankly I’m not complaining about my life because I love every bit of it.

But of course, there are some parts of my humane life that I may neglect because of my priorities and I realized that one of them is my health. Considering the lack of sleep and stress at work is a sure gateway for illness. I’m honestly getting afraid when I saw the dark spots under my eyes. I believe that this maybe a sign of unhealthiness. That’s why contrary to what I crave and eat I really want to change my diet.

I’m currently on search for an healthy diet and I hoping I can maintain it when I start it. For now, I might look for an under eye wrinkle cream to lessen the lines and dark spots. Wish me luck guys! :)

Sunday Movie Date

It’s Sunday once again and it’s my free day! :)

I planned to blog all day for I have so many updating to do but because the husband is too bored to stay at home we decided to watch a movie after lunch.

We thought of watching this.

~ Resident Evil : AfterLife ~

We’ve watch the “infection”, “apocalypse” and “extinction” so it means we have to watch this too to complete the saga. Though we’re still having second thoughts of watching it because I hate watching a movie in 3D. Yup! I’m not into 3D flicks because it makes me uncomfortable and somewhat dizzy. I’m not use to wearing glasses when a watch a movie maybe that’s the reason behind that but nonetheless I just want to watch in a simple mode.

Now, we’re hoping that we can catch this flick in a non 3D mode on other theaters if not, we might just buy our groceries and go home after that. Wish us luck! :)

Wanted : Hair Loss Shampoo

I badly need a shampoo for hair loss.

You see, it has been months since I noticed that I have hair falls. At first, it didn’t bother me for I thought it was a temporary and a minor thing to consider. But as time passed by, I noticed that more hairs are falling from my scalp. To the point, that even my officemates has noticed! Urgh!

This is not good! I think this dilemma is stress related and I really have to do something about it as soon as possible. :(

Happy Sunday Everyone

Good morning to all you! ;) Gosh! I can’t believe it Sunday already! :)

123Friendster.Com - More Sunday Comments

It’s the first hour of Sunday as I’m doing this post. My husband and I haven’t sleep yet because I’m still busy blogging and he is eating his time by watching UFC.

Yup! He loves the Ultimate Fighting Championship and I badly hate it. Urgh! Who would love that bloody sport? Or should we classify it as a sport? For me, UFC is a brutal entertainment for boys who love to brawl. Whenever my husband watches the whole thing and I accidentally had a glimpse of it, all I see is blood! So how will I love it? :)

How can blood be a part of sport? You’ll be the judge of that for I have offered my verdict or should I say my own opinion. Oh well, while waiting for hubby to finish watching I might as well be reading the Medicare part D plan that my dad wants me to review. He needs the review this afternoon.

Have a Blessed Sunday everyone! :)

Early Christmas List

Oh my God! The month of September is almost coming to its end. It only means that Christmas is fast approaching! Urgh! I got a feeling that I have to do my Christmas list as early as now for I’m feeling that I’ll be having a bunch of them this year.

First on my list perhaps are toys for my son of course. Then next will be bags for my SIL and mom. Hmmm… those are just my preliminary plans. We’ll see what happens when after October. :)

The Best Investment

Thinking of what investment you should divulge on? Well, why not try investing on minerals? Yup! You read it right. Nowadays you can grab those precious minerals and start earning money from them. All you need to do is buy gold bullion or silver or even diamonds to start with.

You see precious minerals like gold, silver and diamonds are much more of an asset than any other paper currency. Over the years a paper currency can diminish its value because of currency rates and other factors affecting it. But with gold or silver you can be sure that you’re on the right track. Gold and other precious minerals accumulate in value as time pass by.

So, if you had decided and you plan to try this kind of investment, you can check for more information on how to buy gold bullion and how to invest in gold or silver bars.

Message from God

" On this day of your life, Edralin, we believe God wants you to know ... that if you feel too busy, you are. "

Give yourself permission to be un-busy. Give yourself an hour or a day to simply be. Allow yourself the luxury of a small retreat. Allow your spirit time to be restored. Even God took a day of rest.

Perfect Gift for the Artist

My brother Mike has been the most creative I’ve had. It’s been like that since the beginning of time!lol! He has always been the one who’s good on sketching, painting and many arts andcrafts that I cannot possibly do. :)

Now, only a few months away before Christmas, I’m thinking of giving him a gift that can help persue his artistic side. Well, I’ve done browsing some stuff like art materials with a free box cutter and a complete set of painting materials. But I’m not yet satisfied with what I got so I’ll be browsing for more tomorrow after attending mass.

I hope this time I hit the jackpot.

Job Well Done

Finally, I can really say that our new plant is really finished! Lol! I know I’ve been boasting about its completion for weeks now but it is just now that I realized that everything has been done. From the fabrication of steel buildings to its paints and polish, I can say it’s a job well done. :)

Now, its time for another planning stage – It’s Grand Opening! :)

Wish me luck for I’m the head of the committee! :)

Comment on Review

I think having a secure backup system is really necessary nowadays, especially with our ever growing and highly advanced technology today ones should always update its computer system. This is needed especially on accounting records. Like what just happen to me at work, because of no proper backup all my records disappeared because of data corruption. Now, I’m in big trouble! Urgh!

Early Christmas Shopping

Christmas is just a few months away and with that a lot of bakeries and stores are preparing for this season as early as June or I think some has already started their production as early as January! Why? Because they will need a lot of stocks for their product for a lot of people will surely spend enormous money in giving gifts and presents to their love ones.

Most of us will surely prepare our Christmas list as early as October and some will even start shopping as early as tomorrow for their holiday loots. But did you know that besides from the usual material things that we can give as present, buying a Christmas cake is much more affordable, sincere and deliciously surprising! :) Add them up with delectable Christmas biscuits with an exquisitely arranged gift box, which will be the grandest gift ever! Nice!

Oh I’m just so excited for this year’s Christmas! I feel that this holiday is more special compared to my past Christmases! Lol! :) I think I will try giving such delicious gifts to my friends and family this holiday season and as for me - I can’t wait for someone to give me the cake and biscuit I wanted plus teas for us on Christmas Eve. :)

Working Late

It’s 12 o’clock in the morning and I’m still awake. I don’t want to sleep yet because I want to make my evening very fruitful (besides its Sunday tomorrow a non working day for me). I still have online tasks that I need to finish but I just can’t even make one because of lack of focus. Urgh!

I need to work work work!

I know it’s not nice to stress and pressure oneself on working too much but sometimes we have to do it to succeed. Oh well, I need to rest for a while and set myself on blogging. After that I will need to browse the internet again for a rackmount that my husband needs to resolve his digital system. Ciao!

Well, the only way to find out is to search the web. It was actually my first time to hear that brand so I browse and browse hoping

God Said

On this day of your life, Edralin, we believe God wants you to know ... that prayer is real only when done with your whole heart.

Reserve the sound of your voice for other people. God hears only what's in your heart.

Yes, I do believe this. I know I must pray with all my heart and with all my soul to make everything perfect. Thank you God! :)

Online Military Degrees

A few days ago, one of my long time friends called me from the US. He called just to tell me that he might be coming home next month for a short vacation. It has been 5 years since his last visit and he really misses his family here. He’s also planning on inquiring for a short course education here but I immediately uttered to him that he can earn a degree even online! He was really surprise because he didn’t know anything about it. You see, my friend Jose is currently in the military right now. He just got entered the army 5 years ago and is still on duty serving the US army.

When he heard about it, he immediately inquired about the online military degrees thru his superiors. He told them that he really wants to finish college so that when he retires he can have a fallback. Oh well, I just hope his superiors can give him the best advice.

Roadside Assistance

Last month me and my wife planned to visits her parents and have some road trip. Along the way my wife was enjoying the scenery and the beautiful mountains that we pass thru.

After a few hours we stop at the nearest convenience store, suddenly I noticed that one of our tires was flat, so I pulled over to have it check. When I look at the tires and search for my stuffs I realized that I don’t have any tools to replace the flat tire! I panic for a little while and I ask my wife to dial her phone to ask for some roadside assistance. Good thing, my parent’s place has put up something like that to aid motorist under trouble. A few minutes after our support arrive. Thank God!
