House and scrubs

Everyone is in the new year's celebration mood already except me who is still at work and up to now has still no plans about new year's eve. I don't even know where to spend it. Home or sister's home are my options but if the lazy me strikes again we might stay home and do nothing (well, not really nothing, we might do a dvd marathon)
We were out last night looking for house to rent, we inquired and checked one or two houses but nothing definite yet. How I wish it is as easy as choosing medical unifroms like picking one from the many lines of nursing scrubs on sale from They have cool and stylish designs, you know those type of doctor scrubs that doesn't look ordinary.
I refused to get stressed by the fact that we do not have some place to go to in two weeks. It's new year and I want to have that celebrataory mood too. And by that, I guess I have to start planning what to cook on new years eve. :)

Happy new year everyone!

In two weeks

We have only 18 days left in our present house. We have to leave on the 15th of January and until now we have no where to move to. I kinda worry now because I didn't realize it was this hard to look for a house here in the metro, well not if you have the money but I only have this certain budget for the house rent.  I thought I'll find one in no time but my golly it's like two weeks more and we're out there on the streets.

And I didn't see this coming, this house hunting at this time of the year, I really didn't see it coming.

I wish I have prepared for this like someone who would buy rain boots in a summer day but I didn't and as I have said I didn't see it coming so soon.

But anyways, my hopes are still high that soon we will be able to see that "house" God has prepared for me and my husband. I just need to spend more time looking around.


Four days left and the year is coming to an end. Year end is the time when I usually do some reflections, looking back, reviews of how has been my life the past year. but this year, I am kinda apprehensive of doing such and the reason is that I'm afraid I'll affirm the fact that I did not do well this year.

Yes, I know I did not do well. In many aspects;

In my job

In my ministry

In my marriage

In my family

And in my self


and I look forward to having the chance to do better next year :)

Special gift to husband

Two days before Christmas and we are still wrapping gifts (well, the husband is) because obviously I'm here typing :) and aside from gifts to wraps, we still have few gifts to buy.

Today, the husband is getting his gift from me too but he's buying it or I might come if I feel better. This would be the most expensive gift I will be buying for him and he's more than thankful. We can't even compare our First Anniversary gifts from this one.

I do not know what's his gift for me this Christmas but I'm hoping I'll be surprised and that I will love it also but if not, as we always say it's the thought that counts.

How about you guys? Are you done with your gifts? Or rushing also like us :)

Arnel Pineda @ Hardrock Cafe

It was Hard Rock Cafe's 15th Anniversary and my boss' birthday. Thank God that we can have night out like this. My husband enjoyed the music ( he had his picture taken with the lead vocals of Kenyo too) and I on the other hand enjoyed the food :)

Bathroom designs (inspiration)

I love the green color of the glass tiles used in this bathroom. Green is always a refreshing color as it represents the nature. Combine it with white and you'll have the perfect bathroom. Well, if you design it with nice bathroom accessories also.

Now, that we are searching for a house, my only requirement is a nice bathroom. I can live in a small house, small room and I don't care as long as I have a beautiful bathroom.

How's your December so far?

How are you coping up with December?

I know this is the busiest month for most of us, from Christmas parties here and there, and reunions everywhere,from doing the Christmas shopping and the Christmas rush, indeed busiest month ever.

My weekend was full (especially last Saturday) but it's ok. After all, December comes only once a year :)

We are almost half through with all the activities in the church and ministries and we are still good. Although I promised to give my self a reward right after the chaos. A manicure and pedicure with foot spa, facial treatment, who doesn't need face moisturizers? Just one look at my recent pictures and I know I badly need one. A hair treatment and a whole body massage is what I need at the end of this month.

4th gen Ipod touch

This is what actually the husband wants (probably have said that a thousand times) but you can't blame me, he's been saying that to me more than thousand times also.

here's why he likes it that much.


* Thinner than ever design
* Retina display - The remarkable 960-by-640 resolution on iPod touch makes everything you see and do on it look even more incredible - like the iPhone 4
* HD video recording - iPod touch lets you record, edit, and share stunning HD video. And because it's always with you, you'll never miss a great video op
* A4 Processor - offers even more exciting gaming
* Genius Mixes
* Plays 15 hours of music on one charge
* FaceTime - brings video calling to iPod touch. So now you can see your friends and talk to them.

And what more? it says " this product is perfect for music lover" but sad to say, he'll not have that but this one instead "ipod touch 3rd gen" which I think is also perfect for music lover like him. I just don't think it's very practical to gift him with something knowing that we need money for the house. right?

And oh, he is not a getting a brand new too.

Funeral planning

I certainly do not want to sound morbid here, not especially when it is Christmas season, but you might ask why am I posting about funeral planning here?

Well, maybe I am just amazed that besides a wedding planner or birthday party planner you can now hire someone to do the funeral planning? It's like they will be the one to handle everything during your time of grief and I heard they also come up with good ideas, I think it's nice that you don't have to deal with such when you are grieving, I just don't think I can do that job. Even if I do love to organize events or parties or weddings, I really do not think I can do a funeral. It's one of my weaknesses.

How do you find it? if ever, would you like to hire one for yours?

Gifts for Christmas

Guess what? haven't bought any gifts for our godchildren yet, not even a piece. I do not even have a list of who and what to buy for each one of them which I usually does on Christmas season. I have few books to give but that's for friends. I do not know but the lazy bug hit me plus the fact that our finances won't let us give gifts to everyone this time which saddened me because if ever this will be the first Christmas that I won't be giving gifts to my godchildren. I still hope I can buy gifts for my small nephews before Christmas day because I know they would want something to open on Christmas eve.

If only I'm rich, I'll buy them everything they would ask me during Christmas time, I'll even buy my nephew a big car with some good ATV Parts because for sure he will love it!

But the reality is I am not rich and I can only buy him a toy car which I know he'll also love as long as he has something from me.

Oh Christmas, why are you giving me stress?

Random posts

~It's 2:39 AM and here I am still reading a lipofuze review and also iPad clone tablet reviews which sells so cheap compared to the real one. I think I want that for my self this Christmas but I will not decide yet. I don't need the real and expensive one and honestly I can't afford it so when I saw that I can buy something "like" that..I got interested.

~ I finally saw the Leoncios (friends from Georgia) today and  it feels good to see them, the kids are here for the first time. Liah is such a cute girl. Sad that the youngest is sick and will not be able to attend his birthday celebration at Jollibee tomorrow. Wrong timing tigdas.

~ The Bibu Kids Christmas party was also today. It was tiring for sure but very well worth it. (separate post will be in our ministry blog)

~ It's first Sunday of December today _ meaning communion day so I guess I have to sleep now so I can be at the church early tomorrow morning err..later

House hunting

We are currently on a house hunting again, and we only have till the 16th of January and if we don't find a house after that, we might be sleeping on the street the next day. Though I know God will not allow that. But I tell you, finding a house that will suit your budget (first and foremost) and taste is not easy. Not as easy as finding an affordable car insurance because it is all over the world wide web. But a house that is near to your work or a house that is near your folks, it's quite tiring.

Again, I say I hate moving. I am imagining packing up our things and unpacking it again and boy I am already dead tired.

Please wish us all the best in this house hunting moment of our life.
