I got my New Lens


I have been talking about getting a new lens of my camera and today we finally made it. Hubby took me to the shop today and bought me this new lens I was asking about with his own expensed as promised.

For a beginner like me, I was suggested that I should start with the next step up to my current lens which was 18 to 55mm to 55mm-200mm. But I will get the bigger and fancier one by the summer. I am getting serious about my photography here, hehehehe.

I have got this first DSLR of mine sometime ago, as I wish for. I was really happy and the fact is it does requires a lot of reading about the proper usage. Hubby decided to buy me as my gift last Christmas since he full well knows how much I love photography. Many of my blogger friends asked what kind of camera I got and what model. Not that fancy I'm afraid but I guess it is enough for me to play around while practising as a first timer photographer wanna-be, lol.

I have taken loads of photos already and yet unsatisfied and wanted a really good one. Hopefully one day I will get to that point that I can just used a manual shot. As of the moment I only used my portrait and auto for it is the easiest options I can get, hehehe. I also have my tripod but I am not using it just yet. I will have my new telefoto lens soon and that makes me excited more.

See my photography here, here and here....thanks and have a great weekend!

10 Things that recently made me Happy

Bb_Anne got me this tag and thank you very much girl! Sorry for the delayed post though, lol.

My Snapshots = Recently I been taking photos and practising my photography and glad it all came out well. I am so happy about it.

Hubby's Promised = that this Saturday we will go buy my first Telefoto Lens. I am kinda excited and can't wait for the weekend, lol.

My Shoes = I have bought 4 pairs of summer shoes and that simply made me happy. Can't wait for the summer because I had enough of this cold weather until now we are below freezing and this never ending sleet snow. But glad I had these 4 pair of new shoes to wear this summer and that made my spirit up again.

Milo = this drink has been my favourite since I was just a little baby. I grow up driking Milo because as what my Mum says, I prefer Milo than the Milk, lol. So, hubby bought me one from the Filipino Store and that feeds my cravings. I am so happy having my hot Milo every morning.

Dried Fish = simply my cravings these days and glad hubby bought me 2 packs of dried fish nga bulinaw, lol.

Kath's performance = She had her ballet show yesterday at school and I had to come and watched her and all the way through she was dancing gracefully althought not perfect but she was wonderful performer. It simply made my day!

Ipod case = I was surprised by my husband of this pink Ipod case and that's just awesome thing to have.

My Son's Learning Skills = Oh, my 2 yrs old is way too smart and already knows a lot of things. I said it before and I will say it again that Motherhood is simply a rewarding task. I love being a mother to my two angels.

Paperworks = these things I really hate to do but what makes it great is, when there is someone who will do it for you, like for instance my husband did all my paperworks for me and all that renewal thingy, citizenship application and etc. Now, all my papers and documents are being sent without him hassling me. It's sweatless!

My daughter's grown up Teeth = Oh, she is just 6 yrs old and she already had her grown up teeth now. I mean 5 of them and what made me happy is, it all came out well and staight. Mind you, I look after their teeth and also taught both of my kids to brush their teeth every after meal and floss it every now and then. So, I hope the rest of my daughter's teeth will come out just as straight as the first 5 ones. It would be great and less expensive for us, lol.

Latest Layout

Rapid Growth of Philippine Population

Last night me and hubby was searching about the England and Great Britain's population and how big it is compare to Philippines. After I chatter a friend I was curious to really find out how big Great Britain is - landwise. I know it before but I kinda forget it, lol. So typical of me! Anyway, Great Britain is only 500 metter smaller than Philippines but population is not growing as much as Philippines. Imagine few years ago, Philippine population was only 70 million something and now it's about 90 million? How rapid is that? Yes, and it has been predicted that in no time it will reach to 100 million. Huh? As to the life expectancy, Filipino women tend to live till 73 yrs old whereas filipino men only 64 yrs old while here in England, English women live to their 80's while English Men up to 78 yrs old. So, women tend to live longer than men.

Anyway, I am just as curious as hubby so we decided to do a research. So, Great Britain is only a small place. It consist of four country which are England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Our land is very tight here that is why property is so rediculously expensive. Before I thought we are actually bigger than Philippines, lol. However, Philippine population growth has shocked to the country itself, lol. So, no wonder poverty and lack of education is so common.

I am high-street Bargainista

I am a mum on a budget, so I have to be clever on my expense especially buying clothes - consequently I'm a high-street/ designer collaboration addict. Yet I had to always remember how to resist the temptation and do a research about what's new on the market trends before I hit the shops. I have quite few designer clothing but never once that I paid full price in it. I refused to because I think its a waste of money and too rediculously expensive. I have to live for my budget which is fair to the bread winner in the house.

When I go shop I often used cash just to avoid over spending, I had to leave my cards behind so I don't get tempted, lol. I bring enough cash within my budget only. If I find something I really like then its more than my budget money then I would just get it next time or live without - it's not the end of the world if I don't get it.

I don't used credit cards because I know how high the interest. I seldom used it only for emergencies but I am no big fan of credit cards anyway. When I had one I never used it at all. My sister is using one and often get herself in trouble for overdrafting it and struggles to pay. I helped her get out of debt before and had warned her to stop using credit cards. I just hope she listens. I told her enough that if she shops, she should go for bargain hunting.
