My Little Ballerina...

This was at our old place. Certainly, time flies so fast! In this video, my only princess was only 5 years old and now she is turning 9. Where is all that years? I miss my baby girl, she was my little sweetheart. She still is, really. Just that, sometimes she can be stubborn. But, she's always be my little girl and my only princess, no matter what. I love her to bits.

Better safe than sorry..

Lately, I have been complaining of stomach pain. I don't know if its because of my diet and less exercise. The weather certainly is not helping. Whenever the coldness strike I tend to get lazy and just want to sit around do nothing but eats and sleep. Its terrible habit that I need to stop now. Anyway, I would want to go for a check-up and plus, I need to book my smear test so, I might just do it together to save time. Also, a colon cleanser would not be a bad idea at all. I wouldn't mind starting to look after my health now since I beginning to age a bit. After I read that paper few days ago, about a mum who died of a cancer and left her 3 young children behind, it made me realised how important it is to keep ourselves healthy and fit. All I pray and asked for, is for me to see my children grow and happily settled with each of their own family. Therefore, I decided to take charge of our diet. I mean, not just me but all of us, especially my husband. He has the most weight among us and the inactive one apart from his work.

A last thing...

Ah, there is always a last thing before that final bidding goodbye, isn't it? Well, I am going to check out some new acne-pills because, lately I have struggle to get rid my acne's. I am a type of person who always want to look good wherever I go. However, I am not the type of person who just hide behind make-ups too. I hate putting thick make-ups. Face moisturiser, a little blush on and lip gloss will do me just fine. Therefore, I have to have smooth, acne free face to be able to do that. Otherwise, I will be applying thick make-ups and foundation to my face all the time. And that alone, will take me forever. Hubby complained all the time, on how long I take to get ready. But that's because sometimes I have a nightmare of choosing what outfit I would wear, not because of the make-up. So, that's the reason why!

Back to work soon..

Omg! I forgot that we are near the end of September. Well, we are in the end, not just near. Anyway, I just realised that I need to ring my manager to let them know that I am coming back to work very soon. Oh my, time goes so quick. I think its because I enjoyed the time with my kids without work to worry about. Maternity leave certainly helps! I'm lucky to be given that time alone for my family. Now, its near to the end of my leave and, its time to think whether I go back before Christmas or wait until January. Not that much gap, anyway. But, I wanted to have money on Christmas so that I can buy presents to those people who are close to my heart. I'm not counting, "YOU", bast***! Hahaha, kidding folks! Well, its always the thoughts that counts. Anyway, I gotta dig out my closet and find that maternity booklet I was given because the number I need to ring is in there.

So, good day to you all!

Career Option...

I can't deny the fact that I still fancy looking out for some healthcare jobs here in UK. I don't know what fascinates me about this job. Is it because it pays more? Well, money has to do something about it. Yeah, who wouldn't want to earn more? We all do, don't we? That is why, I am planning to pursue a study regarding health care and who knows that one day, I'll qualify as one. It would really be nice to get the job that pays you more. Nowadays, we need to be more practical. As I mature, I find myself more wiser. So, finger cross!

Ginata-an, Belo2x or Binignit...

I love that! Anyway, the next time around, we will have a new dish to add to our menu and I hope it would be a good one. Its pretty exciting!

Gift thoughts...

Ah, Christmas is drawing so near. I already have thoughts of gifts for the family but not for my special love, my husband. He is the hardest person to buy a present because he is very picky. For the last 8 years I have been giving him clothes and gadgets so, this year I have idea. But, I have a thought that online gift cards would be great. Hence, he is looking for a new computer online. So, my idea would help him get what he really want. Gift cards are perfect gift for him, eh? So, if anyone wants to give me anything this Christmas then, I would be grateful for any gift cards coming to my way. Just an opinion and a bit of hint, perhaps. [laughed]...

50th Birthday of my Friend

This was like over a month ago but only got a chance to upload it last night. My very good friend Bea turned 50 on the 9th of August but we celebrated it on the 10th because she had a little party exclusively for her family only. Me and my other friends planned to give her the best party ever and so we did. Thanks to the rest of the troops who cooperate to make Bea's birthday fun. Here's some few pictures I took with the kids while she was about to blow her candles and of course with me and the couple of other friends too.

A long wait...

Our shopping list for the new house is getting longer and yet our PAD is still unsold. How come? But anyway, we will move in no time and in God's good hands. It might not be now but it would be soon. Having said that, we will have a viewer this weekend. Fingers cross! Oh, once we get our dream house then we can also start buying our household furniture and that include modern couches. Hoping we would get at least 1 spacious living room and 1 family room too. Hubby already planned to buy another big television and surrounded sound system along with it. So, we got to have a big room to put it through. That would be really nice! Oh, I hope the right buyer will be here soon!

its final...

Right after applying my face moisturizer I'm really off to bed. Its getting too late and still I am wide awake. I really need a good night sleep. I'll be waking up early to prepare breakfast for my school kids and then send them to school along with my little one. Ah, life as a Mum, eh? Well, I have no regrets at all. In fact, I'm grateful for I am blessed! I have no right to complain because I have everything I want in life. Great husband and beautiful children. What more could I ask?

Nature of our body...

How crazy is the world today? Imagine, some people might be taking best weight gain supplement or the opposite. Like my friend online who repeatedly seeing Doctor because of his very worrying bony proportion. She's been taking vitamins to help her gain weight but still not making any different at all. Only after she had her twin that she finally gained weight. So, you'll never know what's gonna happen really. Even you don't know your body that much at all. It all depends, really. Must be the nature of our body.

Few dishes...

My friends 50th was amazing. The food was scrumptious and the pudding were totally delicious. The kids enjoy as much as the adults. It was well-organised and planned. The cake was really good. Ah, I wish there is birthdays everyday because I can't enough of the party food, the chit-chats and the karaoke. It's absolutely fun!

Ultimate health remedies...

An hour ago, I was going to log off my PC and start packing up the things we need to take with us tomorrow to our weekend escapade. Sadly, I am taken back the Movie I started watching and now I am hooked on it. I can't move my bum away from my computer anymore. Ah, its getting really late and my eyes are struggling a bit. I need to sleep so, I cam be beautiful tomorrow. I want to look good all the time but sleeping is always the best medicine. Well, I'm sure there is always a solution to any body problem. Like me, if I get eye bags problem the same before, I'll used cucumber for it is the ultimate beauty remedy of all time. So, I stick to it since then. Anyway, speaking of remedy, I am about to share many ways of water retemtion remedies so that anyone can just check this out anytime whenever they need it. If you are in doubt, always best to have a proper check-up from your Doctor before applying any remedies. Water retention can always be treated once it is found as soon as possible.

About to change my eating habit...

Believe it or not, me and my friends feasted quite a lot of food over this week. Since Monday it was, when we started partying in my place and over their place too. It was unbelievable amount of food we made and ate, in every single day this week. I'm so up until midnight before I can finally go to bed, because, I really felt too full and breathless. All that scrumptious food that my friends cooked and not to mention, those delicious pudding. Having a friends around you or near you is a great thing. But, the negative side of it is, I will certainly put on so much weight. My goal was to lose all my post pregnancy fats. Now, I think I made it worst. I might start enrolling myself to Zumba classes or if not, go to the Gym. Oh, hang on! Diet pills appetite suppressants would probably the best option. Ah, I should just used it long time ago. But, maybe I wait until the Christmas holiday is over. Well, first of all, I have to stop my midnight snacking because I think this is the worst habit I have. I should just eat more fruits and vegetables. Ah, stubborn head here!

Movie Night

Its becoming our habit to watch movie every Friday night. Its the only time the kids allowed to stay up late since there is no school the day after. Well, tonight we watched Maid in Manhattan, it happened that its the only one on tonight in the Television. The kids fell asleep halfway so, only me and hubby watched until the end. I don't know how many times I'd watched this film but still it made me happy. Romance is my thing, a bit corny but fun.

Got the best insurance..

Few months back, my husband was stressed out looking for the right insurance quote online. But, it only lasted for few weeks because, he quickly found a very affordable one and offered exactly the same services. And that only took him couple of hours browsing and comparing prices online. The best decision he ever did! Imagine, we probably save twice as we pay from the previous one, if not more. Online quotes are certainly the best help. Now, he is happy as Larry!

The next big thingy.....

My husband and I talked about our kids education in the next 3 years. Again, we are house hunting but unfortunately we might move to another town where our kids will study in the future. Its going to be a big change and big challenge for us. I will be learning how to drive very soon. It'll be the next big thing that I need to do before anything else. For my kids sake, I'll have to be fearless. Soon, I'll get my student license so I can start my driving lesson.

Get Qualified in Medical field...

Most of my friends here got their qualifications from medical assistant school. And, I am thinking that maybe I could get my sister over to finish her study here. She is a nursing student but unfortunately dropped out few months before the graduation, I was so mad then. But distance hinders me of doing anything about it. Still I hope to send her back to school after her visit here with me. In fact, I might just enroll her in advance to show to the immigration that she will definitely go back there in Philippines to pursue her study. Or, I could her over as a student but that will be a long processing to wait for. I wanted her over before Christmas so that I can go back to work and she can look after my little one. Also, she can see what UK is like and maybe it help her improve her English so, when he get qualified as a nurse she can easily get a work anywhere. Well, I will have to wait and see.

Shopping Galore

The picture below was taken during our visit to Bicester Village Shopping Outlet. After couple years of nagging hubby to take me there, he finally did a months ago. It was just on route after attended a friend's wedding so, hubby decided to take us there. It's a nice place to shop for it has got pretty much all the luxury brands. But unfortunately, I still find it very pricey so, only bought one tote bag. But, the next visit, I'll sure have an eye of Jimmy Choo shoes. Hubby promised to take me there again before Christmas. I can't wait!

Wholesaler lingerie

Last but not the least of tonight's list of things that needed to be done is, checking out some new lingerie online. I have collected as many different undies and lingerie over the years. Even more now that online shopping have this amazing offers, always. Its great to know that there is this intimate wholesalers out there who gives us all a chances to buy awesome quality of lingerie. Or else we would pay twice, if not thrice as much as we pay via online. Huh, its always good to know that we can still shop and save at the same time, especially tight hand like me.

Things must not do in FB...

I am glad my FB is very privately customised. Not even my friends can see my information. Well, I refused giving out any of my personal info's anyway. So, I hope everyone will be aware of this........

You can certainly enjoy networking and sharing photos, but you should know that sharing some information puts you at risk. What should you never say on Facebook, Twitter or any other social networking site?

Your Birth Date and Place

Sure, you can say what day you were born, but if you provide the year and where you were born too, you've just given identity thieves a key to stealing your financial life, said Givens. A study done by Carnegie Mellon showed that a date and place of birth could be used to predict most — and sometimes all — of the numbers in your Social Security number, she said.

Vacation Plans

There may be a better way to say "Rob me, please" than posting something along the lines of: "Count-down to Maui! Two days and Ritz Carlton, here we come!" on Twitter. But it's hard to think of one. Post the photos on Facebook when you return, if you like. But don't invite criminals in by telling them specifically when you'll be gone.

[See Burglars Picked Houses Based on Facebook Updates]

Home Address

Do I have to elaborate? A study recently released by the Ponemon Institute found that users of Social Media sites were at greater risk of physical and identity theft because of the information they were sharing. Some 40% listed their home address on the sites; 65% didn't even attempt to block out strangers with privacy settings. And 60% said they weren't confident that their "friends" were really just people they know.

Confessionals

You may hate your job; lie on your taxes; or be a recreational user of illicit drugs, but this is no place to confess. Employers commonly peruse social networking sites to determine who to hire — and, sometimes, who to fire. Need proof? In just the past few weeks, an emergency dispatcher was fired in Wisconsin for revealing drug use; a waitress got canned for complaining about customers and the Pittsburgh Pirate's mascot was dumped for bashing the team on Facebook. One study done last year estimated that 8% of companies fired someone for "misuse" of social media.

Password Clues

If you've got online accounts, you've probably answered a dozen different security questions, telling your bank or brokerage firm your Mom's maiden name; the church you were married in; or the name of your favorite song. Got that same stuff on the information page of your Facebook profile? You're giving crooks an easy way to guess your passwords.

Risky Behaviors

You take your classic Camaro out for street racing, soar above the hills in a hang glider, or smoke like a chimney? Insurers are increasingly turning to the web to figure out whether their applicants and customers are putting their lives or property at risk, according to Insure.com. So far, there's no efficient way to collect the data, so cancellations and rate hikes are rare. But the technology is fast evolving, according to a paper written by Celent, a financial services research and consulting firm.

do what you love....

I am planning to pursue my study even just via online. Hubby is the one who keep pushing me to take photography classes because he can see how much I love doing it. Also, he believed I can be great at it. However, medical and healthcare jobs are far more attractive when it comes to which pays better. But, at the end of the day, we all have to do what we love to do and always follow what our heart desires not only our mind. As hubby said; money, is not the prime factor. When we find the job that we enjoy doing then money will eventually follow. Therefore, medical and health care practice should take whatever is the open opportunity out there and get their career started for it only knock once.

Has been cancel...

The viewer cancel his appointments just when we are all done cleaning the place, damn it! Anyway, the good thing about this is, we have an immaculate house but for sure it won't last that long as I have 3 handful children. Well, they need more space to run around, a garden to be precise. My kids are big enough to be inside the house all the time. It's terrible! I just wish that our PAD will sell quickly so we can buy a bigger place very soon. Another option is to let this place out and buy somewhere bigger. The thing is, we are desperate to move. Our space is just not enough for the kids, they are kind of hyper and small PAD ain't helping. But anyway, I know the right buyer will come at the right time. So, finger cross for now!

Branson next year...

My husband has been very kind and generous to us this year because he took us to quite a few places over the end of the summer. Oh yes, its not as fancy as everybody thinks but for me it was quite a special time for us all. In couple weeks time, we will be going to Legoland for the weekend. I think its hubby's way of paying us back his time because he was very busy working and hardly had a time with us over the spring and to the extent summer. Only lately that he was suddenly taking his part as a husband and a father. The kids was just as excited and happy as me. So, I hope the next summer we will be going to a fancy holiday. Branson vacation packages will be worth checking, yeah? Why not! Might suggest it to hubby so we could prepare and start saving for our pocket money because with 3 kids in tow can be quite an expensive journey. Its really true!

When I picked up my Kath from her tennis lesson, I was going to take a picture of her in action but unfortunately the fence over took the focus so, this is all I got instead of my daughter playing tennis. But anyway, I got her a photo in the end of the session which I will share in my next post.

Lets go for Ecco

Talking about footwear, nothing beats ecco shoes. Never knew the name before until my husband's sister in-law handed us down her kids old stuff to us and it happen that there is this pair of Ecco shoes, brand new with tags. At first, I thought it was a cheap crap because why didn't she let her kids use it. But little did I know, its the best made you can ever find. My daughter wore it for years and passed it down to my 2nd child then now I can't wait for my youngest to have a good go with it. Quality always last long and as they say, you get what you pay for in life. Through experienced, I think its good to buy quality shoes and Ecco is definitely worth every penny. Ecco shoes are on my list for Christmas shopping.

Shoes Collection

It has been over 2 years since hubby bought my very first designer shoes. Well, I've got some branded shoes too but when talking about signature it only means like Christian Louboutin shoes - one of the world's famous designer that is usually wore by A-list people. Highly unaffordable. For me, I will only settle for a pair a year. This year, Christian Louboutin is my next list for my shoes collection. Nothing wrong with treating myself occasionally. Collecting them means the world to me.
