Can you believe it? It's the end of the month already..time flies so fast! and I'm turning 37 next week! just in case you do not know ( reminder for my friends) it's on the 8th of February. If you need gifts suggestions just ask my husband..hehe! I would gladly accept a Minka Aire lights, or a couch.
I have only one wish though for my birthday and my close friends surely know that. And although it is my major prayer request too, It will still be ok if the Lord will still not grant it this year, He has greater plans for us and I trust His plans are way better than mine,
On the other hand, I am also praying for a new computer as ours was broken already. Thank God for friends who let me borrow their laptops so I can still work at home. Please help me pray that I'll be able to get new one soon.
Have a happy weekend everyone!!!

We can't afford to buy a new desktop more so a new laptop now but it is hard for me to not own a personal computer too because I need it. We both need it.
I wish we have high tech phones or PDAs or PSP, one that I can use to browse the net while waiting for a new computer.
How long will I wait? I pray it's not that long.

Are you facing some challenges or experiencing some unexpected setbacks? We all have things that come against us, but God didn’t create us to be overwhelmed and overcome; He created us to be overcomers!
During those times when we do face challenges, it’s our attitude that is really most important. Think about it for a minute. When something isn’t going your way month after month, how do you respond? Are you tempted to get sour or start expecting the worst? Does your mind start going “ninety-to-nothing” playing out all the scenarios? It may be easy to get down and discouraged, but if we go around thinking it’s never going to work out, our attitude limits what God can do. But when we dig our heels in knowing that God is bigger than our problems and that He already has a way out, when we fight the good fight of faith, that’s what allows God to show up and turn negative situations around.
Today, remember, you are created to overcome. There is victory already in store for your future. Stand strong with the attitude of an overcomer and watch what God will do on your behalf!
Prayer for Today: Father in heaven, thank You for making me an overcomer in Christ Jesus. I trust that You are bigger than my problems and that You are working on my behalf. Thank You for the victory in store for my future! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

You can imagine how happy we were when we finally have these in place (Jollibee Balibago) and see the outcome. It was of course beautiful for us. Love your own ika nga. And besides, we both have no formal training on it yet which I still want to pursue this year. One whole day seminar will do I guess. I hope I can set aside a budget and a time to attend one soon.

I only advertise with entrecard and that because I used my EC credits to do it. I am not sure though if I am ready to pay real money for advertisement.
I want to try it but I am having second thoughts. What if I don't get it back? But I guess I would not know it unless I give it a try. kulit ko no?
Well, I'll be giving my self another week to decide on it, for the meantime, I should be thinking of more serious matter like getting rid of belly fat. Me and dear husband are getting bigger each day and since new year started we've been meaning to walk every morning but to no avail. We both cannot do it on mornings as we are always rushing so maybe we can do it at night.
I just hope we can do it soon.

The results of switching for me? I still don't know. Right now I do not notice any difference at all but hubby started using it this week and tonight I saw the glow on his face. Why and what? I do not know.
So there..my beauty soap is now my husband's soap.
As I have said my mind is wandering from different thoughts but the majority of it think about food, does it mean I am hungry?Right now, I am thinking of dinner later. And it's like I am motivating my self to cook something, have not cook for quite sometime now. I don't even
remember what and when was the last time I cook. That only validates that I am not a kitchen person. I just hope I find myself in the mood to cook later. Ask me to do something, clean the room, clean the bathroom and I will gladly do it, cooking is not just my forte, good thing hubby does not require me to cook and good thing we have a very good friend, housemate that loves to cook!!
I imagine if I already have kids, I hope by the time God granted our prayers for a child I would have then develop a love for cooking, otherwise my children will be lovers of junkfoods and will lack all the nutrients they need, they might even need hgh supplements for them to grow tall. Sigh. Alright then, I should start learning to love the kitchen, I'm weird though because I love watching cooking shows but I really can't cook. :)
I wish I could go home now and see what I can do at home. Wanna guess?
Will I blog? Will I play games on facebook? Will i watch TV or Dvd's? or will I cook?
I'll let you know tomorrow or later! bye!
OUR 2009 HIGHLIGHTS
FEBRUARY - our first out of the country trip. we went to MACAU for an East Asia IT Missionaries conference and then from Macau we went to HONGKONG.
JULY - I was terminated but it's a blessing, I knew it was coming but I know I will not lose the job. It's like I only moved from one company to another but with termination pay of course!! :)
AUGUST - We moved out of the center (church home) this was one of the toughest decision we made last year but so glad we did, it feels different to live on your own. Our motorbike was also fully paid this month!! Praise God!! That's a major relief for me, a natural sleep aids indeed.
SEPTEMBER - another tough decision was made, my dear husband resigned from being a full time staff of the church but remained to be the music ministry leader. You can just imagine how worried I was, imagine we move out and rented a place and then he resigned, not that I count on that meager allowance he get from it but I admit it was still a big help.
NOVEMBER - dear husband went to a short mission trip to Malaysia without me. He was supposed to stay only there for 2 weeks ended up staying there for one month. Major adjustment for both of us because we were apart for the first time.
Through that whole year, God has been faithful to us, providing for our every need. Though there was no baby news this year,I can say 2009 was still a memorable one for us.
Next post -our trips last year :)

-are always late, our Pastor mentioned in going to church but I say it could be in work, in your appointments and so so on.
- are living an unhealthy life, it does not necessarily mean taking the alli diet pill or not eating at all, but I guess it is time to change to eat healthy foods, sleep early, exercise (ok,I'm telling that to my self)
- are not giving time to your love ones, they will not be there always, so say how much you appreciate them as often as you can, express your love,say I love you, visit your mom and dad, go out with friends.
Time to change from bad to good and from good to BEST!!!

Mead Johnson, Maker of Enfamil, Loses Multi-Million Dollar False Advertising Case Against Store-Bran
U.S. District Court Judge James R. Spencer issued his written rulings yesterday following the November 10th jury verdict. Judge Spencer’s written rulings permanently enjoined Mead Johnson from making any false statements concerning PBM's infant formula, including the claims Mead Johnson previously made in Enfamil advertising that "It may be tempting to try a less expensive store brand, but only Enfamil LIPIL is clinically proven to improve brain and eye development," and "there are plenty of other ways to save on baby expenses without cutting back on nutrition." The Court also ordered Mead Johnson to retrieve from the public domain all advertising or promotional materials containing these or any other false claims about PBM's store brand infant formula.

View from the top :) to reach blue lagoon you have to go up and down a mountain ridge you would even ask if there's a beach because of the narrow road and the mountains but behold this sight!!!
This last picture below was taken on our first trip there March 2008 and I said to my self I will be back, we did last January 1 and hoping we will come back again some other time. I love the beach , I love the blue water.
So where and when is our next beach trip? I do not know. I hope I win a punta cana all inclusive trip for two. That would be fantastic!! But a CORON trip would also be wonderful!!

Look at that beautiful cloud formation and the blue sky, what a beautiful first day of the year!! And because it's a beautiful day, we all jumped for JOY!!
The jumping pictures. Looks like we're gone crazies here and for sure we will never pass any pre-employment screening in this kind of pictures but it only shows we had loads of F-U-N!!!
The hubby took these pictures (below) because the tiresome me stayed only at the foot of the lighthouse this time.
I think he took a different angle of the lighthouse which I found nice :) He really has an artists mind I must admit. Am thinking if we can use this in our t-shirt printing or to some promotional tote bags next year.
After the lighthouse, the windmills on my next post.
