One More YEar To GO!

Last May 26, 2009 is our 12th month downpayment for our condo unit in Berkeley Residences Quezon City. I am getting more excited for I only have to wait another twelve months and it's turn over time! But aside from excitement I am feeling right now, I am also worrying with somethings like our processing fee before the turn over date amounting to Php100,969.41 and If we we're able to loan in the bank for the balance. We were worrying bout the financing coz we can't afford to pay it thru In house they have so much interest compared to bank. Anyway, we're doing something about that already. We're focusing now on how to start with the rentng business next year. Where and how are we going to look for a client to rent. I think I'll be needing a Real Property Management so that I can still have more time for my own realty business. I don't know yet the policies and how to handle a tenant. I think a property management will help me a lot with it. Gosh...I am thinking so hard in advance.

Planning to Take Broker's Exam in the Future

Mary Ann, my manager in real estate is having a review for her upcoming Broker's License Examination. I'm sure she'll pass that exam and become a broker in the future already. That is actually my dream, to become a licensed broker in realty. I wanted to put up my own team and have higher commission rate. But I don't think I have to get one already coz' I am still a newbie in this field. I am also thinking of other business aside from this one. I know being realtor is actually a good job for me and I wanted to pursue this career but I still want to have other business. I just don't know what business is that. My co-agent asked me a while ago if I am interested in putting up a business with him. I actually don't know what to say because first of all I don't have a capital yet and I don't know what business is fit for us. And now, I was bothered, thinking and then browsing thru net about business. This is what I found and learn for this day...have you heard of BAMentor site already? These are for business analyst, and if you have business, these analyst are the ones you have to approach for you to succeed in your business. Most of the business analyst need to get CBAP Certified for only 6 weeks course for $600 for th public and $345 for IIBA members. There are lots of courses now to be offered so nothing to worry for the upcoming exams, I think if I will decide to get a broker's examination, there's also a review center like this for me. I am really afraid to take exams again, thanks to this kind of institution offering a hand.

My Mind is Getting Crazy Thinking of So Many Great Items in the Net!

Oh Gosh, I can't concentrate on what to buy first with so many things to choose from the internet. I am actually saving my money from PayPal for my future photo books, I can't buy any items yet unless it's cheap and until I get more opportunities in blogging. But I can't really resist browsing in the net and looking for so many irresistible items. Tell me if you can't resist to buy this monogrammed towel wraps? Oh gosh I think I'm addicted shopping online already. Good thing I don't have my own credit card, I am only using PayPal and I am really saving them for photo books first. Another thing I can't resist is this nap mats. Did you know how many times I peeped on this product and thinking ways how to earn money to buy them? Heheheheh! I really love them, napmat and towel, they're match! Oh I hope I could earn more for this! I really love to buy this and the personalized plates and placemats for children that I've been longing for a month already! Oh help me God!

My First Studio Shot Project

My cousin Monica was here in Manila taking her vacation. She's from Laoag Ilocos Norte where I studied high school. She was staying with my aunt in Caloocan and she also stayed in our house for 3 days. I let her use the computer, introduce her to some techi things. My kids love her, they don't wanna let her go. But she have to coz she's still studying in highschool. While updating her friendster, she said she has no picture to upload to her account. I volunteered to take her a picture using my low tech digicam (my olympus is under repair @ servimax). She agreed, I set up a semi studio in my room with my kids stuff toys as a props. Here's my sample shots:

Let's Celebrate Mommies!!!!

Happy mother's day to all of us, it's my first time to celebrate mother's day in blogosphere. I am lucky I've met fellow moms out there from different sides of the world. I am learning a lot from you guys.
I wanted to share this tag to all mommies in my blog roll and to those mommies who have visited my site feel free to grab this. We all deserve this tag...HAPPY MOTHER's DAY!!!!!!

Thanks BAMBI for sharing this tag and now I am passing it to you again and to all of mom's in my blogroll =)

- start copy here -

Before I was a Mom -
I slept as late as I wanted and never worried about how late I got into bed. I brushed my hair and my teeth everyday.

Before I was a Mom -
I cleaned my house each day. I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby. I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous. I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom -
I had never been puked on - Pooped on - Spit on - Chewed on, or Peed on. I had complete control of my mind and My thoughts. I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom -
I never held down a screaming child so that doctors could do tests...or give shots. I never looked into teary eyes and cried. I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin. I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom -
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put it down. I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt. I never knew that something so small could affect my life
so much. I never knew that I could love someone so much. I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom -
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body. I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby. I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child. I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important.

Before I was a Mom -
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay. I had never known The warmth, The joy, The love, The heartache, The wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom. I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much before I was a Mom.

Send this to someone whom you think is a special Mom...

And remember that behind every successful woman......
is a basket of dirty laundry.

My First Projects with Photoshop

Just wanna share my first projects I've done in Adobe Photoshop. My First real digiscraps were done in scrapbook flair software and artscow's software. Thanks to JennyL the "master digiscrapper" for sharing some tips in digiscrapping. I just started dgiscrapping last month and I am enjoying it very much! I thought I am not gonna make it, I though it was hard, but loving what you're doing is a big help in learning. I think I will surely learn more, I just have to keep on practicing. Here's some of my trial digiscrap I used in mommy moments entry:

The First Technique I've Learned (from JennyL) : Drop shadow and Eraser Tool

New Stuff and Cool Stuff

I've got something new in the net! Whoa cool stuffs! I love personalized stuff like my mouse pad I just ordered from artscow. I saw something new in the net a while ago and I really wanted to purchase some. I wanna try these cool coffee sleeves, this is kinda cool! I was planning if I could use this as a souvenir for my son's third birthday. Aside from photo books i am doing right now, there's another thing that caught my attention, this mom agenda! I wanted to get one of this so I could list all the things I need to do for the whole year especially now that my daughter is going to school already. I am very confused with so many appointments. Using calendar is not enough for me. I really have to have something that will remind me my appointments. One thing more that I am dying to avail is this personalized placemat. Gosh my daughter will surely love it specially if her favorite cartoon character will be there with her name. Oh well i am only just planning all of them for now coz my priorities for now is my photo book projects. I hope I could finish them all.

Project No. 2 "Ishi's First School Experience" Digiscrapbook

Hooray! Last May 5, 2009 I have submitted my second photobook project to artscow. i will be expecting it soon three weeks after. Aside from that I also ordered 5 pieces 8*10 custom collage for only $.99 with free shipping! Can you imagine that freebie? Who will not use that priviledge? I did! I made 5 designs, 3 for my three nieces, 1 for my brother's family picture and the last page is for our granny. I am again very excited and can't wait to see the print out of my work! While waiting I am working with my next photobook entitled "Super Ethan Turns One". I'd like to use adobe photoshop in designing but I am not ready yet. I want to explore more in artscow's silverlight software first. I will be doing some projects in adobe soon. I have lots of projects in line but I have to earn money online first. You know what I am talking, as I've said to my previous post I am just earning money online because of my other expenses such this. And If I dont earn money from here then I don't have money to spent for my precious photobooks. Well I hope that not happens coz I am still trying very hard to earn. My blogger friend told me to sign up to earn in different companies she just gave me.

My Birthday!
