Summer Bonding # 1

The Summer heat is On! My family just had our first summer outing for 2013 at Misamis Occidental last March 16-17, 2013 to give a birthday bash for our beautiful Yoyang.  This was actually an unplanned visit at my Aunt's fish pond with our kiddos before going back here in CDO, gave them a chance to experience such because it was their first time. They enjoyed much in their boatings with cousins as well as feeding the thousands of fish. Look at our Ate Danielle who's enjoying the doctor fish in her fish spa. :)

Well, no one could ever replace the life in a rural areas~ the fresh air, the fresh foods and fruits and everything! The place is so calm and that you just wanted to rest the whole day away from stress. But during this escaped, we only devoted two-three hours only because we need to be back home and that we made promised that we will be back the soonest to really enjoy the place.

Along the way back home, we decided to have a peek on the upcoming International Airport that our province has to offer. Indeed, it was really nice yet it's too far from the city. Watch out for the full operations on April 30, 2013.

Just enjoying the afternoon bonding with my family...

Keep posted for our next Summer Escape/Bonding. :)

Wasted Life

I remember those times when my Uncle would try to show us the smoke that will come out from his nose and even those with designs he forms out from his mouth. Now, he's totally different from being someone that were looking up due to his status down to a 360 degrees (full turned) of his societal status because of his vices that caused him to suffer an illness. I think he almost tried everything in life before because he has lot of resources and that his vices are super high in maintenance that even in his cigarettes he's using Rocky Patel cigars, travels here and there, girls everywhere and etc. Indeed, he just wasted his life before and now he's back to zero trying to mend things up, anyway it's not yet too late to change.

Happy Birthday Yoyang!

March 16, 1936 a girl named Benita S. Valero viuda de Mutia was born….she grew up with his parents not as a spoiled brat but blessed enough that she experienced all the goodness that life has to offer. Now that she’s on her 77th birthday we wanted her to experience again the life that she had before in her younger years. We the grandchildren and her children gave her a birthday bash. She invited her set of friends from Church and the rest are just family members and relatives who made her 77th birthday so memorable! 

Once again, a blessed birthday to our dearest Yoyang (grandma)!

How to Keep Organized in your Kitchen

For some of us, our kitchen is the most important room in the house, so when it begins to take on that run down look it may be time to consider a little remodeling to improve it. Whether we live alone or the dwelling includes a significant other, we could end up in search of a few ideas to complete the task. In most cases the job will include an upgrade of our kitchen cabinets to give it that new look.

Trying to design a kitchen does not necessarily involve an obscene amount of money, especially if you are capable of doing the job on your own. So long as the d├ęcor is simple and you watch where you purchase your materials, your makeover will be affordable, the only question is who will approve the design.
How to Keep Organized in your Kitchen
The fist thing you need to do is put together some decent kitchen plans for the job. A well organized agenda that includes proper layouts for everything will make more sense to the one doing the job than a few scribbles on a piece of paper that do not even show the styles you expect to be using. The changes in your kitchen should be carefully considered.

When you visit your kitchen it is usually to grab a cup of coffee or to prepare upcoming meals. Whether you are the type to devour fatty foods or you choose to maintain a menu that consists of healthy meals, your game plan will be simpler, get it done in an efficient manner. Remember, 30 minute meals could turn into 45 minutes if you can't find anything.

Following recipes from a cookbook usually entails the need to find your pots and pans and some of your favorite dishes. The more we use our cookware, the more we understand the importance they serve in our food preparations. While some people swear by their stainless steel cookware, others prefer the Teflon experience and will not accept anything else. The bottom line is that your best cookware set needs to be stored somewhere.

Someone who spends a lot of time in the kitchen will understand the need for proper organization, if only for the fact that when they need to find something, it is there. When it comes to getting organized it could be as simple as putting in some new RTA cabinets to store your things, a task that we can all afford.

Unsettled Issue with the Bank

Four months ago, I encountered an issue with a certain bank in whom my online bank account was hacked. To make it short, had filed my complaints and then after three and a half month they issued a resolution that the investigation that was made was in favor with the bank. Quite disappointed since it turned out that I was the cuplrit instead of being a victim. I don't know what kind of investigators they have because they have so many lapses during the process. Maybe they can't afford to hire investigators from background checks because even myself or my friends and relatives didn't got the chance to receieve any calls from them for a simple investagation/background check about my side. 

Anyway, still hoping for a positive result because I filed another complaint for a reinvestigation of the said case. I know I have the right for this....

Tips in Buying Shoes Online

Have you noticed that people today are breaking the custom of trudging off to a department or a shoe store just to buy a new pair? We used to do it years ago but now it’s so different, online shopping has become the latest and greatest trend of shopping. People are now convinced of giving their personal (credit card) information believing that online shopping today is fair than ever before. I believe this is happening because people become busier and that mostly I think that it's because we now have access to brands, designers, styles and sizes that we were not able to find in our local shoe stores. Over all, it will make your transactions lot easier, saving your time, effort and money. Save money? 

Exactly! Sometimes a shopper cannot get the item at local store at better deals but with online shopping you can really save. One thing is for sure, there will bigger and better deals online. 

As I was browsing for women’s shoes online, I was so happy to see of the 70% off on selected women’s shoes at certain site. Good thing they offer Coupon Raja Coupons and until now I am so undecided on what to buy because there are lots of shoes to choose from. Before I’ll check-out my order, I just want to share you some tips in buying shoes online. 
Tips in Buying Shoes Online

Have knowledge of your body 
Simply you need to know what you “look good” in – like if you have wider feet then don’t go for a skinny heels and etc. 

Use the Size Charts 
Do not ignore those size charts that you have seen online because they can help you make sure you’re getting the proper sized item for you. Remember that different brands fit differently. 

Know the Added Cost: Shipping Fees 
Look for a great deal in which shipping cost that is not too high because you might just end up paying a lot more than you anticipated. If possible, go for deals which offer for a free shipping. 

Know the Policies in Advance 
Lastly, know the return and exchange policies of the website before placing your order or else you might end up in disappointment. Please check out also in advance whether you'll have to pay the return shipping fees if you do need to make a return or exchange. 

Buying shoes online is a great way to save time and money if you just have to pay attentions to the details mentioned above and that as long as you are dealing with a reputable online shoe stores. Happy Shoe shopping everyone!

Bonding Moments: Joy-Riding!

I remember those times wherein hubby and I used to ride in his big bike (motorcycle) having no kids yet. Now that we have them, we never got the chance to go on joy-riding because he doesn't want them to be expose in danger (you know how dangerous motorcyle is). Just recently when we had our visit at my in-laws place we got the chance to let them experience riding a scooter and both of them really enjoyed those precious moments. We strolled them around the subdivision and that made the two kids super happy! Indeed, you cannot buy happiness with money!
