Super Tiring Day But Had Fun...

Got bored after lunch. Hubby was still in Daet so I have no one to talk to the whole afternoon. Bendyk was busy in front of the TV so I can't even disturb him. My bosses are sleeping during the afternoon so I still have no one to converse with. I must admit that I'd rather want to be alone doing my own things, but there are still times when I just can't help it but look for some ways to unwind. And yes, an alternative to my techie-buddy is the mall. I dunno why my feet are itching to go to the mall most of the time.

So before I changed my mind, I called Bendyk to change his clothes and it was my turn after I put his "paraphernalias". In 30 minutes, we reached Mama's house (hubby's granny) to pay her a visit and at the same time asked hubby's 15-year old cousin if she wants to come with us. You see, I can't handle my little prince alone. He's too heavy for my skinny body to carry him the whole afternoon. It's just a good thing that Sweetie excitedly come with us. She's been spending her summer school-break at home so she is also getting bored.

Well, the truth is, we planned to watch for the most awaited heart-throb Sam Milby. We heard that he's coming at 6:00 p.m. this afternoon. And since we still had so much time to stroll around, we let Bendyk played his fave game, basketball and also had his rides. But it seems that he won't take a "no" for an answer when he insisted to ride in that push-car. Oh my, he's getting hard-headed lately. As what most people say, "like mother, like son" seems to be true, lolz!

So there he had it, a push-car for an hour. Whew! Money wasted once again...


I had an eye on that colorful cotton candies near the WOF so I went there and bought two cones, pink and blue. I just dunno why it says in their jar that the pink one is a bubble gum flavor. Hmmm...it didn't taste like one. Well, maybe it was just a part of their marketing strategy.



We also went to the Castle Playhouse but we didn't let Bendyk come inside. He's below the 3-year old bracket and according to their rule, the kid must be accompanied by guardians only if both are wearing socks. Well, I don't wear sneakers nowadays so it'll really be impossible for me to wear one. I know Bendyk wants to play inside the Castle but I told him to wait until he turned 3 this coming November.


After an hour, I asked Bendyk if it would be okay for him if we return the push-car since one hour had already lapsed. He agreed but on one condition, we have to eat at Jabee. Whew!



Afterwards, we went upstairs to buy a flash drive. I got the 2 GB so I can store a lot of my files, particularly pictures and digiscrapped images.



And then we headed to Landco Plaza where Sam had sung 3 songs. He is really good in singing and mind you, he looks so charming and sweet. He's not so maarte like the other celebrities who would hesitate to shake hands and even dare not to go down the stage near the audience. He's really a nice guy aside from the handsome face and body he has. I was actually taking photos and videos of him using my phone, but sad to say the light coming from the stage was really irritating. I don't see Sam on the photos taken. I could have just brought my digicam only if I knew that I am going to see Sam in person.



Sam Milby left at 8:00 p.m. so we just waited for hubby at Mama's house. And after an hour we went home and forgot that I've not yet taken my dinner. Maybe I was overwhelmed of Sam hahaha! Hubby had taken his dinner in Naga City so he thought that we already had eaten at the mall before we went home. It's late at night so stores are already closed. It was just a good thing that I bought earlier 3 Chuckies, Chiz Curls and of course, my fave Snickers. Yea, you got it right. These serve as my dinner for tonight except for 1 chuckie which Bendyk took away from my 'office desk' huhuhu!

Me vs. Junky-Healthy meal

It was already past 11:00 p.m. tonight, munching and sipping my instant dinner.


I'm actually multi-tasking at this hour, chatting with Shammy, having my instant dinner and at the same time chatting with mah boss.

Be Patient

This is a true story which happened in the States. A man came out of his home to admire his new truck.

To his puzzlement, his three-year-old son was happily hammering dents into the shiny paint.

The man ran to his son, knocked him away, hammered the little boy's hands into pulp as punishment.

When the father calmed down, he rushed his son to the hospital. Although the doctor tried desperately to save the crushed bones, he finally had to amputate the fingers from both the boy's hands.

When the boy woke up from the surgery & saw his bandaged stubs, he innocently said, " Daddy, I'm sorry about your truck." Then he asked, "but when are my fingers going to grow back?"

The father went home & committed suicide.

Think about the story the next time u see someone spill milk at a dinner table or hear a baby crying. Think first before u lose your patience with someone u love. Trucks can be repaired. Broken bones & hurt feelings often can't.

Too often we fail to recognise the difference between the person and the performance.

People make mistakes. We are allowed to make mistakes. But the actions we take while in a rage will haunt us forever.

Pause and ponder. Think before you act. Be patient. Understand & love.

Dating Tips For Teenage Girls: Four Fun Things To Do

You have liked this girl for a while now, and you finally got the courage up to ask her out on a date. However, while you are really excited, you are really nervous. You want everything to go perfectly, so you are really in need of some dating tips.

Dating Tip #1: Ask Her What She Wants to Do

Girls love it when they get the opportunity to go on a date to their favorite place. So, you will be earning a lot of respect from her if you follow this dating tip. However, if she says that she does not have a particular place in mind, you should start planning! This is also a good time for you to ask other female friends that you have for advice.

Dating Tip #2: Choose a Neutral Place

Since this is your first date, you do not want to jump right into a romantic relationship and take her to a romantic restaurant. Keep everything just fun for the first date, and take her to the mall or to the movies. As for what movie to pick, choose a comedy. This way, you can laugh together and keep the situation less nerve-wracking.

Dating Tip #3: Give her a Flower

When you go to pick up your date at the door, make sure you bring her a little something – specifically, a flower. It is a nice gesture, and one that she is sure to love. However, keep it simple and save the bouquets for later on. As for what flower to choose, a single rose is a great idea, but if you happen to know what her favorite flower is, that is especially good.

Dating Tip #4: Do Not Try to Rush Things

As much as you like your date, you cannot just start making out with her, or going even further. Girls like a guy that lets them lead in that department, and it is better for you to just get to know each other on a mental level instead of a physical level. If this does not interest you, then you should reevaluate what you are looking for in a relationship.

Remember, relationships take time, and as a teenager there is certainly no need to rush into one right away. The important thing is to date and have crushes, but certainly not marriage! Dating is supposed to be fun, so get to know each other and see where this relationship goes.

But sometimes, I also peek on my computer to watch my favorite live broadcast.

Dating Advice For Women: Lighten Up And Give Him A Chance

Contrary to popular notions held by women today that there just are not enough good men left to date, evidence that is available points out that such is not the case. The ideal man could be someone that has a good career as a teacher or electrician and who is over five feet seven inches in height, is athletic or even huggable and who likes to cook, dance and hike as well as watch movies.

Look For Honesty And Monogamous Males

The best dating advice for women would be to look for such men, who in any case are also looking for a loving relationship and who view monogamy positively and who, also pride them on being honest. You would also be well advised in looking for a partner that is not too much older or younger than you since such men would also want the same things as you do.

Another important dating advice for women is to give the man a chance because it is a common complaint among men that women just don’t give them a chance, and it is quite common for men to be refused by women that have sought men out through dating services without even having spoken to the man or responded to communicate with the man any further. This kind of behavior on the part of women can leave men dazed and bewildered and also very frustrated.

The next piece of dating advice for women worth considering is to not judge the book by its cover and look beyond appearances and looks. Often, women may complain that they only are rejected because of their looks and men do not take enough time to get to know them better, and the same holds good in the case of men being rejected by women. The best dating advice for women is that they should select their partner not just on physical attraction, because this a common trap that most women easily fall into and that is why matchmakers don’t show photographs of prospective partners in the beginning.

It also brings up an important point about the cost to women in rejecting men based on superfluous attributes, and unfortunately the cost may be quite high and it is a common reason why they often miss the boat.

It is a much better idea to profit from dating advice for women and expand the horizons by looking for more desirable qualities in men such as finding someone who fits well and who maybe also has a warm heart, or who has communication skills of a better kind. Women should also look for education as well as honesty and because women in this present age are more independent, they do not need to worry too much about emotional support or even the financial status of the partner.

It is also worth paying attention to another good dating advice for women and that is it pays to get to know the man and sharing a glass of wine or engaging in light conversation and sparing an hour or so of her time to know the other person from the inside is worth more than simply accepting or rejecting a man based on his physical attributes.

Today, dating is filled with many opportunities and according to sound dating advice for women, you need not be so hung up on expecting very high standards of the prospective male and it is much better to give the other a chance and even say ‘yes’ when someone meets minimum criteria even though he may not be an ideal person, but could still make an excellent partner. There is not much you would lose and plenty that you could gain.

A Wifey Momma Wannabee...

It's the 15th of April, the effectivity date of my resignation from my previous work. Yea, I decided to leave my job and in the meantime would try my best to be a "wifey momma". It's so strange that for over 2 years of becoming a mom, I never been an ideal mom to my kiddo and a good wife to my hubby. I'm not so sure of this, but I guess it's quite true.

Anyhoo, I started the day cleaning the house, rearranging stuffs from one corner to another and so far it feels good to touch them once again. You see, I've always been a frustrated interior designer so expect everything inside the house to be rearranged once a week or at least twice a month. It makes me feel oh so damn goood!

Done with the general cleaning and assisted my prince bendyk in his milky bubble bath. My prince looks fresh again so I turned on the TV so he could watch his anticipated fave show, wowowee. While the wifey momma went to the kitchen to cook for our lunch. Hubby is at work so no one would cook for Bendyk and me. (sigh!) I found fresh longaniza and was confused on how to cook it the right way. I forgot to ask hubby about it before he left.

Well, I imagined how it looks like when cooked so I figured out the procedures. I washed the longaniza first before putting them on the pan. And then I half-filled the pan with water, and put it in the stove, covered them and waited for a few minutes until the water boiled. I picked every piece of longanizas and sliced each into thin pieces. After that, I put a little cooking oil in an empty pan, put the longanizas on it, sprinkled a pint of sugar to caramelize and put them on the stove. I tossed and turned them on the pan so they won't get burned.

And after a few minutes...



My specialty for today...taraaan!

When you try to look at it closely, you'll notice that some part are a 'lil burned. I found out that cooking this kind of dish sticks on the pan so I had to gather extra effort just to toss and turn them. About the taste, well...I must admit that it doesn't taste good. It's some kinda sour and a bit sweet. I dunno if the problem is with my cooking or the mixture of the one who made it. Sigh! Better luck next time christelle, hehehe!

After lunch, cleaned the table and washed the dirty dishes on the sink, I took a bath and interact once again with my techie-buddy. I have a lot of online work to do. You see, I resigned from my job, but it doesn't mean that I don't work anymore. I deal with data entry, social marketing, and monetized blogging so expect me to be busy everyday like when I was still working in a real office.

Rat-Race is Over!

The experiences were like my everyday coffee, which I sometimes mixed with a creamer and sugar, and sometimes with no creamer poured in it. Why did I say so? Well, I gained friends, a lot of them.

But there are those whom I have trusted so dearly, but turned out to be a coffee, bitter...so I just have to spill it out. But sugar and creamer came, and I have to hold onto them. They are sweet to cuddle, to be with the entire busy day. And I'm grateful that even for a short while, before I left the place, I was able to realize who my real friends are. They are always there to cheer me up. They added spice to my boring day. Shared with me the endless laughters that I badly needed sometimes.

The "bitchiness" tagged in my name, courtesy of one or two, or a lot of them who have been insincere friends for a year, has taught me to tell who my real friends are. You guys accepted me no matter how bitchy I am. And I really appreciate it. Hope you will all still remain the way I knew you all.

Before I end this post, let me say "Thank you! with hugs and kisses" to Anabelle, Eden, Lala, Shammy, Halley, Ate Precy, Yhen and Owenn. I may only have a few real friends like you, but I'm glad that no matter how few I've got, you are all true and kind. I'm gonna miss you all, guys! I'm teary-eyed but I know that you are always there, remained to be my friends forever. Thank you! Thank you! Let me end this post with this... and every time you read it or encounter someone who actually is a bitch, please do remember me, a friend who was once called a bitch, but is proud to be one if below are the bases of being a bitch...

BITCHOLOGY

When I stand up for myself and my beliefs,
they call me a bitch.

When I stand up for those I love,
they call me a bitch.

When I speak my mind,
think my own thoughts or do things my own way,
they call me a bitch.

Being a bitch means I won’t compromise what’s in my heart.
It means I live my life MY way.
It means I won’t allow anyone to step on me.

When I refuse to tolerate injustice and speak against it,
I am defined as a bitch.

The same thing happens
when I take time for myself instead of being everyone’s maid,
or when I act a little selfish.

It means I have the courage and strength
to allow myself to be who I truly am
and won’t become anyone else’s idea of what they think I “should” be.

I am outspoken, opinionated and determined.
I want what I want and there is nothing wrong with that!

So try to stomp on me,
try to douse my inner flame,
try to squash every ounce of beauty I hold within me.
You won’t succeed.

And if that makes me a bitch , so be it.
I embrace the title and am proud to bear it.

Garden Marker


How do you spend your leisure time? Most women do spend it by staying at their gardens, planting different flowery plants that provide colors to their front or backyard. It is somehow a cool way to spend your time so you may also want to do the same. While others are really into gardening so you may find them hanging out at their gardens, planting flowers and plants as many as they can in a day.

So if you get a chance to visit gardens that are filled with different plants which seem to be new to you or you really don’t know how you’ll call them, you may want to suggest to the owners to put a plant label to each of those plants you see.

Should they get interested, you just have to suggest that by putting a garden marker you are able to introduce your guests of what you have been busy with everyday. These plant stakes can also make your garden look organized as you are able to group each kind of plants according to names. If you are a garden owner, visiting the site is one way of pampering your garden with the garden markers you will see. They are just a few clicks, anyway so take time to visit them. It’s worth visiting though for you are not just going to get a chance of organizing things in your garden, you will also be able to help yourself get in touch with each kind of plant you have in your garden.

Learn How to Cook

I’ll be staying at home now. I have to spend much of time with my family especially with my kid the whole summer and it will start on next week. Yes, I already resigned from my job and it is effective on the 15th of April. I have to prepare for the next school year while doing a job at home. And I might also enroll in a culinary school in the city. I just have to figured out which chef school among the culinary schools is best.
