WS1 : What a Mess!

It's been a month now and until now, I can't still figure out what to do with this mess! This is supposed to be my kids cabinet for their toys, but I don't have a choice but to use some of the space.

Sunday morning, I was planning to arrange and fix these mess, but I end up watching movies with my husband when he arrived from his basketball game (sigh!).

Our First Ever Investment on it's 6th month Downpayment!

Wow, it's been a while and we are about to finish 5% of our down payment! Yeah, i know we're still far from the "moment of truth" but It seems very fast to me. After paying 20% down payment and that would be on May 2010 (20% downpayment - 24 months to pay), our unit will be turned over to us then we can start our business!
Berkeley Residences

1 bedroom unit

We invested 1 bedroom condominium unit in BERKELEY RESIDENCES by SM Development Corporation last May 26, 2008. And tomorrow is our 6th monthly down payment. Berkeley is located @ Katipunan Ave., Quezon City right in front of Miriam College. We chose this project for investment because aside from being in QUEZON CITY, It's also very near with so many prominent schools and learning centers like Ateneo de Manila University, Miriam College, UP Diliman, UP Integrated School, CCA, KOSTKA, PSBA, among others. Isn't a good investment opportunity? You have different choices of market, there are students who need to rent spaces for the duration of their stay in the academy, professors and teachers working in schools.

Location map

They will also enjoy the amenities such as:
1. Student Lounge
2. Billiards Hall
3. Swimming Pool
4. Sunken Deck
5. Gazebo
6. Tree Court
7. Study Area
8. Flora and Fauna

The GROUND FLOOR would house:
1. 24/7 Convenient Stores
2. Gym / Fitness Center
3. Computer / internet centers
4. Review Centers / school
5. Specialty Restaurants
6. Coffee Shop

I can't wait to start this business. I'm confident that this investment will contribute a lot of help to us couples. Especially that our kids are growing faster.
After our down payment in this condo unit or if we have spare money someday, my husband and I were planning to invest lots only somewhere in Bulacan which is actually not that far from Manila via NLEX.

Ito si ETHAN, ang aking pangalawa at bunsong anak. Kuha ang larawang ito noong siya'y mag-iisang taon pa lamang, ngayo'y magda-dalawang taon na siya sa darating na Enero.
Maligaya siyang kumakain ng tsokolateng sorbetes sa aming terrace. Wala siyang pakialam kung gaano na siya karumi sa kinakain niya, ang mahalaga, masaya siya at nasasarapan sa kanyang kinakain. =)

What would you do if you found out that your partner cheats on you?

picture tripping with my husband

OMG.....I've already experienced it and I don't wanna experience it again, ever!!!!
Well if that would happen again especially now that we're married, i really don't know what I am going to do. The last time I experienced it, I wanted to freak out and kill the girl! Hahaha yes that's how violent I was before but that was all in my mind, what I really did was nothing but cry (poor me). I have forgiven him kasi siya naman umamin. Hehehehe.

when SAHMone speaks.......Entry #2

Does your partner remember important dates such as anniversaries and birthday or do you keep a calendar to remind him? I'm thinking, does he really remember and just ignore it? lols! Just kidding. I think YES he remembers especially my birthday. Last birthday of mine he came home with a cake for me and they (hubby and my kids) sang a happy birthday song for me....what a precious moment! As for anniversaries, I know he remembers, it's just that I ussually greet him first then he greets me back.

when SAHMone speaks.......Entry #1

Do you celebrate anniversaries? How?

Waaahh.. that's very nice question. Actually, when we're still boyfriend and girlfriend, YES we do celebrate it in some simple ways. The usual way is that we watch movies and eat dinner together. Sometimes we give gifts to each other. I do always give a gift or a card but he doesn't give me gift sometimes lols. I understand because he was the one paying our bills hehehe =)
Now that we're 3 years married, we still celebrate it but sometimes we're not going out anymore. The last time we celebrate our anniversary, we're just inside our room watching downloaded movies in our computer. Hehehe =)
This is my first entry for When SAHMone Speaks.....I Love this game! Come and join us now!

"Ang Dalampasigan"

Setyembre taong 2008. Ito ang muli naming pagkikita ng Dalampasigang ito, pumanaw ang aming Lola kaya kinailangang umuwi kami ng probinsya. Ito'y matatagpuan sa barangay ng Gabu, Lungsod ng Laoag, Ilocos Norte, kung saan ako lumaki, nagdalaga at nagsimulang mangarap.

Isang taon mula ng pumanaw ang aking ama nang ako'y simulang manirahan sa probinsyang ito . Taong 1992, ako'y nasa ika-limang baitang na noon, magkahalong takot at saya ang naramdaman ko nang malaman kong dito na ako maninirahan at mag-aaral. Takot, dahil malalayo ako sa aking pamilya at ibang tao na naman ang aking makakasalamuha. Saya, sapagkat makakapag-aral ako at di na malayong makamit ko ang aking mga munting pangarap. Ngunit hindi biro ang dinanas ko upang makapagtapos ng aking pag-aaral. Ginawa ko ang lahat upang matustusan ang iba kong pangangailangan. Naglabada't namalantsa sa murang edad, namasukang tagahugas ng pinggan sa isang restawran tuwing sabado't lingo, gumawa ng proyekto ng ibang tao at kung anu anu pang masasabi kong marangal na trabaho para lamang makaraos at makatapos.
Naalala ko noong ako'y unang sumama sa mga kalaro kong maligo sa dalampasigan na ito, hindi ako marunong lumangoy ngunit di ako nangamba sapagkat mayroong akong galon na may takip na alam kong magpapalutang sa akin sa tubig. Nagpakasaya ako, di ko inaakalang isa sa mga kaibigan ko ang magbibirong agawin sa akin ang galong yakap ko at hayaan akong malunod. Nagsimula akong kumampay, sumipa, makipagsapalaran upang di tuluyang malunod. Di ko namamalayang nakakapaglangoy na pala akong mag-isa, paunti-unti at ako'y nasa pampang na.
Alam kong may dahilan ang lahat kaya kinuha ng Diyos ang aming ama ng maaga na siyang nagsisilbing aking salbabida upang makapaglangoy sa malawak na karagatan. Alam ng Diyos na matutunan kong ikampay ang aking mga kamay sa gitna ng mga pagsubok na kanyang ibibigay. Sa kabila ng lahat ng ito'y alam ng Diyos na matutupad ko ang aking mga pangarap ng mag-isa. Ang mga malalakas na hampas ng alon ng dalampasigang ito ang nagturo sa akin maging malakas, matibay at maging mapursige sa buhay.

Ito ang aking kauna - unahang paglahok sa Litratong Pinoy sa temang "Maala-ala Mo Kaya?"

Ishi's 3rd Birthday Preparation

November 14 is nearly coming soon and it's ISHI's birthday na. Thank God I'm done with some of the stuff we need. It's just a simple celebration, we're just going to celebrate in her school with her classmates and teachers of course. I also invited some of her close cousins to play along and have some snack at home after Ishi's celebration in school. (Some of her favorite playmates aside from her bro Ethan, are cousins Julia, Aliyyah, Alynnah, Joyce, Pong-pong and Brent.)
There will be no games on her party except for the contest that I am planning, I'm calling it "Draw me If you Can". All of her classmates may join if they want to, all they gonna do is draw ISHI on a bond paper and color it if they want to. The drawings that more look like or most describes ISHI are the winners (1 winner from 3 years of age and 1 winner from 4years and above). At home naman I'm planning to set a play area sa terrace so they can play there as long as the want.
I prepared some party favors such as Lootbags (which I made personally) with different colors of blue, green, yellow and pink and same colors of "Pombong" for kids and some small balloons for decors. Foods are just spaghetti on styro and hotdogs with mallows on stick, and their favorite Zest-o juice. At home, I will prepare some of the kid's favorite like lollipops, m&m's/nips and lots of juice heheh coz I'll know they'll be needing it while playing hehehe =)

Lootbags -and "the making"

My invites were already printed, what I'm gonna do next is make an envelope for it(i prefer making my own than buying). Stickers for Pombong were also ready na, ididikit nalang kapag nahipan na. "Thank You" card is also done, lalagyan ko nalang muna ng candies yung lootbag then isasama ko yung thank you card.

This invitation was designed by newbie ME!

Ishi has her birthday dress already, Lola Mama bought it last October, I'll be pairing it with her black shoes or pink sandals nalang coz we can't afford to buy a new as of the moment. My problem nalang is her CAKE, i really wanted to buy her DORA cake coz she'll surely love it, but i don't think we can buy that unless Lola Mama will buy one hehehe. If we can't have the DORA cake then we'll just have an ordinary Goldilocks cake (hayz, so sad I can't even buy her dora cake, bahala na si batman).

Let me show you naman some of the stuff we've prepared for Ishi and Ethan's 1st birthday. Tarpaulins and invites designed by daddy and signatured frame designed by me. Lootbags and giveaways are my own design and creation. Cakes were all donated by Lola Mama as well as Ishi's dress (hoping she'll "sagot" Ishi's cake again) hehehe =)

And oh, I almost forgot, i just bought Dora birthday banner for ISHI instead of tarpaulin.

A Special Gift......

Way back 2001, when my husband and I were still boyfriend and girlfriends, we're both 2nd year student from different school. I received this first ever stuff toy gift from him on my Birthday. He picked me up at work (I'm working at Jollibee while studying), he gave me this gift, we watched movie and we have dinner together. Hayz, what a moment! I love remembering those kilig moments.

I've been keeping this bear for so many years, it's already 7 years old last august 5, 2008. =)
I still keep it with plastic cover 'coz I don't want it to get dirty and get washed over and over again kasi naluluma.
This is my first entry in Toy Hunt using this Blog Site, I already joined last week using my other Blog Site .

My Birthday!

Our Wedding Anniversary
