Antwerp Fashion is a Must-See

Even though I'm a foodie and there are many places that I would like to visit because of the gastronomic delights that they offer, don't forget that I am also a woman. And as a woman, I am very interested in clothes, make-up, shoes and bags. In short, I am very interested in fashion. I would like to know what's in or what's out and what's the latest style this season.
I have heard that when it comes to upscale and trendy fashion Antwerp is the place to visit. Antwerp Fashion has gained reputation because of the combination of vintage and cutting-edge style. So if you're looking for what's hot and what's not, Antwerp will surely be your destination of choice. As for me, I'm more interested in Antwerp fashion so I could compare it with ours.

I'm still more interested in food..LOL! Although I've heard that food in valencia is similar to ours in the sense that they like rice and serve it often, I'm positive there's still a difference in taste, presentation and the flavors that it comes with. Restaurants in Valencia has been influenced by different cultures that it serves  a variety of international dishes. Those dishes have adapted to the Valencia flavors so it's more of fusion cuisines. That I've gotta try.

Ako na ang Iskwater at Maitim ang Kaluluwa!

May kaaway ako kanina. Kulang ang brain, kasing-liit yata ng brain ng higad. So for further enlightenment, here are some points to ponder.

# 1. "Hindi ikaw ang nagpapa-aral sa anak ko" ang sabi mo, wala akong pakialam. "Ikaw ba ang kausap ng teacher?"
Hello? Walang nagpapa-aral sa anak mo kasi hindi sya nag-aaral. Hindi mo sya in-enroll remember? Naniniwala ka na ba sa sarili mong kasinungalingan?

May pakialam ako, kasi pamangkin ko sya at ayoko syang mapasama, Isa pa nagbigay sayo ng pang-tuition at pangbili ng libro.Ang pangbili ng libro ay galing sa nanay ko. Saan mo yon dinala? Ibinigay mo sa kapatid mo? Bakit? Nagpalaglag ba sya ulit?

At hindi ako kausap ng teacher, dahil kausap ko ang Elementary Registrar kaninang umaga na nag-confirm na hindi nga sya naka-enroll.

#2. Sayang daw ang ipina-aral sa akin ng magulang ko dahil parang "iskwater" ang bunganga ko.Well, ang lumalabas sa bunganga ko ay reflection ng sinumang kausap ko. Kung mala-"iskwater" ang bunganga ko, at ikaw ang kausap ko, malamang "iskwater" ka.

# 3. Maitim ang kaluluwa ko. NEWSFLASH Honey, hindi naman talaga ako mabait. Ako ang pinaka-salbahe sa aming magkakapatid.  Hindi pa ba nakarating sayo ang balitang yan? Kuya ko ang pinakamabait...... kaya mo nga sya nauuto.

#4 Pasang-awa ako nung college. If you can prove it, di sige pasang-awa ako. O eh ano naman ngayon? This is real life and your grade in college doesn't count kahit na anong grade mo at kung may grade ka.
May grade ka ba? Wala. Kasi hindi ka naman naka-graduate.

#5 Naaawa ka sa akin, kasi hindi tayo magka-level. Honey, hindi talaga tayo magka-level. Kahit kanino mo pa itanong...LOL! Baka sila ang maawa sa akin kapag nalaman nilang pumapatol ako sa basura.

#6 According to you,Uod ako....oo Uod ako.. kaya ako nakipag-usap sayo... nakikita ko kasi ang mga kapwa ko uod na  nagkukulumpunan sa nabubulok mong........
a. Budhi?
b. Keps?
c. Utak?
d. All of the above

Ano-ano pa nga ba ang nabubulok sayo?

#7 "Kawawa naman ang bb.......magsumbong ka sa nanay mo"  So ano ang bb?
Duck? Blackberry? Ako ba yon? Nagje-jeje-speak ka ba?

FYI: Hindi ako nagsusumbong, lalo na't duwakang at BOBO lang na katulad mo ang isusumbong ko. Hindi ako kagaya mo na nagsusumbong sa kuya ko para patigilin ako. Subukan mo magpakatino at itigil ang kakatihan mo baka sakaling maawa ako sayo...

#8 Gusto naming sirain ang pamilya nyo. Ano kami tanga? Gugustuhin namin mangyari yon for fun? Ikaw ang matagal na sumira ng pamilya mo. Tama ba na turuan mo ang anak mo na magsinungaling sa lola nya at tatay nya? Tama ba na ipakita mo sa kanila na may katabi ka sa kama na hindi naman nila ama?

Gawain ba yon ng isang ina na gusto maging buo ang pamilya nya?
Gawain ba yon ng isang mabuting ina?


sa aking mahal na kapatid,

Baka sa susunod na manganak ako tanggalan mo na ako ng atay. Wag naman. I'm just making a point.
Ako ang shock absorber ni nanay. I'd rather let it out in a non-violent form than a morbid and violent one.


Yun lang.


I, thank you .

Bow ulit.

Europe Tours is my First Choice

I am very fond of traveling. Whether it's just out of town or out of the country, I don't care. As long as I'm traveling, I'm happy. I love immersing myself in different food, culture and lifestyle. It's a vacation , adventure and a breather from everyday life.

There are many places that I want to see and, of course, to save myself some money I know I'm going to book travel packages to see them. The primary reason being travel packages are always cheaper that do-it-yourself travels.

So if money is not an object and I could choose three tour packages, these are my top picks:

My first choice is europe tours. I want to see France~ the French Riviera, the Eiffel Tower~ Germany, Switzerland, London and Spain.

The next tour that I want to get is alaska tours. I want to be able to experience the Alaskan scenery of glaciers and ice. I want to explore what Juneau and all the other cities has to offer it's visitors.

My third would be ireland tours. The cities in ireland are very rich in culture in history and I want to be able to immerse myself in that. Plus I love the accent of its people. I want to be able to experience castles, and farms and scones!

I also have three top picks for tours in the country but let me discuss it in another post.

This is so cute and funny!


New Kitchen Light Fixtures

Iam going to tell you a little secret.

You know how much I love taking food photos, right? I love it so much that I only take food photos during the day. Daylight brings out the true colors of the food.  In as much as I would like to take photos of the food that I prepare or dinner, I always think twice about it because I know that it wouldn't do the food any justice. Our kitchen is dim because it is old and needs repainting. We also need new kitchen light fixtures to illuminate our kitchen.

I know that if I take a picture of the food at night it would either be dark or blurry. I already talked to my sister with regards to getting new pendant light fixtures. I guess we still have to think about it thoroughly and evaluate if our budget can cut it. I guess a new kitchen pendant lighting wouldn't cost as much but if we changed the our kitchen's lights and have it repainted, the whole house would follow and we would need to do that to each and every room in the house. There would be a renovation.

I guess we'll have to stick with just changing the kitchen's lighting fixtures...

Do you keep "extra" things in the house?

In a household made up of five children, in which two are four years old and one is a toddler, I always find the house in chaos. Two of the kids are always fighting but is the best of friends after an hour. There are lots of crying, laughing, and running around. Toys and clothes are everywhere. The remote controls are always missing and you won't find them wherever you look.

But you can't leave it like that so what I do is designate a place for them to play, so I can keep the house in order. I also keep an extra remote control just in case I don't find them. Actually, I keep a lot of extras in the house, extra food and snacks, extra shampoos and extra batteries. I even keep extra Laptop batteries so when our laptops run out, I could just replace them and charge the other batteries.

I think the only things that I couldn't keep an extra of is TV Parts. I sometimes find my youngest niece turning the TV off and on and I can feel that it's just a matter of time before it gets broken. Oh well, I guess I will have to call the TV repair guy if it comes to that.TV Parts. I sometimes find my youngest niece turning the TV off and on and I can feel that it's just a matter of time before it gets broken. Oh well, I guess I will have to call the TV repair guy if it comes to that.

I want a Sanuk Sandals

I want a Sanuk sandals.
Yup, closed sandals this time. I guess I'm tired of wearing flipflops and open sandals...

I Want to Eat in Amsterdam Restaurants

It is getting crazier here in our house everyday! I mean with a business and five kids to take care of, I'm getting  a little bit stressed and I'm missing the rest and relaxation I had when peanutbutter came home for a vacation. But that's one of the reason why I work hard. So I can experience things like vacation and travel.

I love traveling. I love immersing myself in different cultures. I love to experience their food, music, people and art. One of the places that I want to go is Amsterdam. Amsterdam is a beautiful city in the Netherlands that is known for its impressive architecture, canals and universities. Since I am a foodie at heart {and a food blogger at that}, the first thing I want to try or experience in when I go there is amsterdam restaurants. Food can tell a lot about a certain country.

I also want to see the art in Amsterdam. It is very seldom that I become interested in something as deep as art but since Amsterdam is known for impressive architecture which can also be considered as art, I figured I have to see the most beautiful piece of art Amsterdam has to offer their visitors.
After Amsterdam, it is Dubai I want to visit

Three Wishes

Ang hirap maging 2nd nanay...
Ngayon alam ko na kung bakit hindi ako titser at kung bakit computer shop ang business ko at hindi day care center.
Susme, kung makakakuha nga lang ako ng isang bote na may lamang genie at bibigyan ako ng three wishes..ay hihilingin ko na:
  • maging 36 hours ang isang araw...para isiksik ang duties and responsibilities of being a mommy and a 2nd nanay.
  • magkaroon ng kapasidad na mag-multitask ng bang pwede akong makapaglaba habang natutulog {taray noh?}........AT
  • magkaroon ng self-cleaning house na may kusang-loob na maglinis ng sarili nya. Yung tipong di ko na sya kailangan sabihan na "hoy, linisin mo na ang sarili mo at ang daming nakakalat na laruan"
Oo, inaantok na ako at gusto ko nang manabunot ng hipag...

One Stop Shop for Gift Card Printing, Online Printing and Plastic Card Printing

I was very busy last week preparing for a wedding and a birthday celebration. Most of my time were occupied gathering details and preparing gifts. My gifts were easy to choose, I just bought it in the shopping mall. What took my precious time so long was the Gift Card Printing because there were a lot of choices. We also looked for somebody who would do the Online Printing of the invites and the Plastic Card Printing of the souvenir items. Not to mention that I have a special role on my cousin's wedding. I was one of the bridesmaids. There was even a dress fitting the day before the wedding. I love the color and the fabric. Luckily, even if the dress didn't fit well, Sis made it possible to fit me. I was flattered, the dress identified with my body shape despite eating anything edible in the kitchen, lol. It was a long but productive and exciting week.

Today, I've noticed my computer's desktop, bookmarks and favorites looks like a hurricane passed by because of the different websites, notes, drafts and tasks I stored on it. Good thing was I came across a one stop site for all my printing needs in case I need it again. So its time for me to clean up all of this mess.

High Quality Conference Calls

Communication has always been the key to everything. Education, relationships, businesses -- you name it. Everything will be dead, lost or forgotten if we don't communicate. In today's world, technology plays a big part in communication. There's e-mail, social media. telephone, cellphone and fax machines.

But sometimes an e-mail or a telephone call is not enough. If businesses wish to stay at the top of their games, they will need to communicate effectively with both their clients and employees. High-quality Conference calls is what they need to manage their communication quickly and effectively. Of course, not all companies can provide high-quality Audio conferencing. You will need to look for a company that can give you the ability to communicate with multiple parties at once, anytime of the day, at anywhere in the world.

Traditional conference calls are so out. Today's Audio conferencing uses highly sophisticated methods and tools to make sure that each party in the conference receives and transmit high voice quality no matter how near or far and no matter how large they are. It is worry-free as companies such as this provides a full-time operator. All of this at a very affordable price.

So I guess, it's time to learn the words "nice to do business with you" in multiple languages..
