3 days off and 4 days on...

That's my schedule or shall I say my routine. I work 4 days from Friday to Monday and then off Tuesday to Thursday. Well, I don't tend to work Sundays but if there an OT offer then I make sure to grab it. I'll never say No to earning more...to whoever wants to offer me a business then I'll grab with wide open arms. Well, some Sundays I need to spend it with my Family or some weekends that I am force not to work especially when my husband starting to make noise that I have no time for them during weekends anymore. So, what can be a better days but with the family's right? So, I still have priorities and that's them, my family - my husband + my kids - my life and my everything.

Medicare plan is a must

Not a year passed when my kids will not get sick especially my sons. They are more prone to bugs and viruses. Times like this, I'd wish we have healthcare insurance or such. Medicare part D plan is more of a promising and is the one that I'm currently pondering of getting if I can get my behalf to agree with it. Not all the time we can rely on our savings as there are lots of unexpected expenses once in a while. At least if we have a form of healthcare plans we got something to fall back to, right? Well, I'll better try discussing it with hubby again to see if I can get him agree this time. Our conversation last time was going nowhere so, I gave up in the end. Anyway, I hope you all have medicare plans if not then you should get one now.

Slight Changes

I know you can't really tell in the picture but I personally thought that I'm slightly toning-up after weeks of doing Wii Fit and Zumba. Well, I don't do it everyday but when I do it, I tend to complete whole 30 minutes and few occasions 45 minutes. I do it like twice or 3 times a week and few weekends I jogged for half an hour. Not much changes or result straight away but recently I noticed that I toned up a bit. My legs, my bum and my tummy. Though, I tend to eat quite a lot during day time but is trying to stop myself munching at night time. I find myself craving for more carbohydrates and sweets but maybe this is just the effect of my exercise. Anyway, I hope to continue this good start of my healthy lifestyle. Or is it? I don't really limit myself when it comes to food as my husband always say that I don't need to for I'm naturally slender and petite. Well, I might be but that doesn't mean I am fit, right? Ah, as long as I am happy of what I'm doing then so be it. I'm quite satisfied to release some endorphins twice a week and can still carry on my all those food delights that I craved day after day. I'll sure get there in the end.

Wishing for an Xbox...

Just got them (my kids) a Wii few months ago and now my son is wishing for an xbox, already? I was totally shocked when my 5 year old demand for an xbox last night. He got bored of the Wii already and wanted a new electronic games. We thought it would take them at least a year to ask for anything. Goodness, aren't kids these days are a little spoiled? So, guess what? I told him to wait until he is 7 to get what he wish for. Or work a little harder on his school and maybe...(only maybe) we will get him an xbox as a reward. To be fair, he has a great school report but still he has to wait at least a year or so to get another gaming stuff. Dear oh dear! What the kids are like these days?

Off is over again...

My days off are almost over - back to working again. Though I'm only part-time but still I get tired and wish I can stay at home everyday of the week. I work only Monday and Friday but recently I accepted overtime and that's during weekend where I can earn more without paying any babysitter. Hubskie is my babysitter for the weekend. I need to earn more as I spend more...hehe. Anyway, tomorrow's my daughter's sports day and I have to go watch it since Daddy is going for his meeting. Glad its morning as its my only available time. I haven't done any cleaning yet so, I'll be stuff in the morning. Not sure how long the sports day takes. If its all morning then I don't have a time to clean the house. Maybe, I leave it until Saturday night. Not that bad at the moment though. Its just that I'm used to my routine of cleaning the house every Friday morning before I go to work. Anyway, I better get going - its getting late in here:)

Buildings, Metal and etc...

I'm getting sleepy now and I should be going to bed but I'm so engrossed watching this Filipino Series entitled, "Reputasyon", "Amaya", "Munting Heredera" and "Sinner or Saint". These are the "Teleserye" that I'm currently following every single day. The story are awesome and so far so good. I just hope that Director wouldn't tweak it around too much just to make the story longer like any other Filipino TV soaps. It always start great then somewhere in the middle they tweak it too much that it loses its plots and made the watcher or viewer bored. Anyway, so much for that...On the other hand, I should be getting ready to rest for I have an early tomorrow. But couldn't let go of my current fascination...metal buildings has totally caught my interest all of a sudden. I think part of it is my thought of building a little empire for my family back in Philippines. It all started from searching building designs and such...Ah, I wish to pursue all my future plans.

Filipino breadroll/ Pandesal

After many years I craved for Pandesal (Filipino bread roll) I finally made/baked some. Only few weeks ago when I have the mojo to finally do it. Since we move house I have been trying to bake or do some more cooking. Just trying to imposed a healthy lifestyle for my family sake. And, the result of my very first bread roll baking was... just as good. The only advised I got from my critics is to put a little salt next time, lol. But, all in all, I did a great job to think that it was my first time. As always, I'm documenting it out and here it is....

Pandesal (first attempt)


Recipe I got from Panlasang Pinoy...

To those who hesitated using diet before then now you may change your mind upon reading this article. Yes, there is actually a diet pills that work - it has been tested and proven by many people all over the world. So, if you are doubting before then now you know which one to try to. It's not a con, its real! Trust me as I've been to the site for many times and read consumers testimonials and feedback. Besides, I have a friend who literally just started using it few months ago and lost 3 kilos already. If you are determined and stick to the diet plan then it'll work. So, why not try it?

Mending Tips and such...

Our new house is looking more like a home now. After we spent a fortune in it. New boiler, added radiators and new hot water tank as well as sun room revamped. Everything added and now we are officially skint. So, there will be no spending for 6 months and maybe onwards, lol. Got to diet and etc. Anyway, after nearly 2 months (on and off) knowing these builders, we (me and hubby) has learned many things about buildings and fixing and mending stuff as well as fittings and various materials and equipment. So, the next time our house needing for mending we should be up for it. Tubing Bender is another new thing that we learnt. Ah, hiring professional carpenters are such a good idea. Not only they make our house a home, they also taught and show us many things that might be handy in our everyday living. It's a good thing sharing ideas and knowledge, doesn't it?

Anniversary '11

As blessed as I am, is just right to give thanks to the "Highest" for the wonderful family, kids, friends, family and everything that came with it. Having celebrated another year of our marriage is an amazing thing. I thanked God for giving me such a loving, understanding, humble and forgiving husband in the whole wide world. Not so grateful when he is grumpy of course, lol. But, he is just a human after all. [Wink]. Anyway, this is how simple we celebrated our anniversary - dined out (only me and hubby) then back home for pictures2x, lol. The kids waited patiently with my very good friend who baby sit them for few hours. It was good!

We got poor signals:(

Having switched into a different provider gave us quite a nightmare signals at times or shall I say, really poor signals. But, I think we could boost our signals by getting one of this indoor antennas and install it as soon as possible. Ah, we didn't plan to switch provider but unfortunately our previous provider didn't have coverage in our new area. Too bad! But, as I say we could get indoor antennas to be able to get that faster connection like we used to have at our old place. Having said that, I'll go check for the top rates antennas online. I'll let you all know the outcome of this plan in my next update, alright? Goodnight 'ya all!

Not-so-motivated

Why I always leave it too long to update my blog? I've got about 4 blogs in total but none of it are up-to-date. I mean, I just don't have the time in the world to write into my blog everyday. Well, I could probably squeeze a little time for it and exactly right now that my lot are all asleep. But the problem sometimes is that, I can get so engrossed with other things online such as; browsing on e-bay, editing photos and scrapbooking. Well, at least today I finally have the mojo to blog and letting you all know that I'm pretty okay, doing alright, surviving everyday and was very productive all day today. So, thank you all for taking time to read my so boring blog and leaving comments and some love via my chatterbox. I promised to write more interesting updates next time when I'm all it and motivated.
