Hit The Road!

It's time to hit the road! That's what hubby said when I was getting ready for church yesterday. I don't know why I'm always the last person to get in the car.
Anyhow, while driving on the freeway, a yellow hummer passed us and caught my attention! I suddenly grabbed my handy dandy camera and took a quick snap of it. Perfect entry for Mellow Yellow Monday!

MM: New Family Photo

I can believe it's already Friday! Wheewww! Anyhow, it's time to participate Mommy Moments once again. This week's theme is "New Family Photo".
These are the recent family photo of ours. It's our tradition each year to take a family portrait. Usually we did it at our house next to our Christmas tree, but this year was different.
I searched the net and found a great location for our outdoor pictorial. It's a lake close to the park.  
You don't need to hire a professional photographer, all you need to have is a camera and a tripod. Just set the timer for 10 seconds....:)

It's Nostalgia time! Thanks to sisRose for hosting this meme. My entry for this week is the photo below. It was taken 5 years ago when my younger brother and I went to visit the Island of Camiguin, Philippines. Behind us is the Spanish church near the famous sunken cemetery. I can't wait to go back there someday. It's a majestic place!
This is me and my little brother. He's not little anymore as you can see, but I still call him my "little brother". I wish I have the same height with my brothers. They're both taller than me. And I also wish I could go back to my regular physique....:)

There is a lot of good information online that you should read to help you become more familiar with Stem Cell technology and cell isolation.

Stylish Metal Bookmarks

Weeks ago my husband was busy organizing his books at his office room. While he was organizing, he found some books that he thought I might be interested in reading. He gave me 3 books to read. Ayay! Reading is not my forte. I honestly don’t like reading. How about you? Do you like to read? I read authobiograpy and biography books only. I’m hoping to read them all this year. I saw these gorgeous metal bookmarks at the other day. I thought they’re kind a cute. I might have to get a few of them for the books. They’re inexpensive too.

Need A Spa Cover?

I had never been in a hot tub before. Have you? I think hot tubs are great accessories to have at home. Not only do they let you enjoy a warm and relaxing soak, they also give you vigorous massages and hydrotherapy. I don’t mine having a hot tub, but right now I can only afford to buy a spa cover. My husband and I might consider buying one someday.

New Achievements

New achievements is this week's Mommy Moments theme. Akesha is turning five this coming April. I know! I can't imagine my preemie baby is a big girl now. She claims all the time that she's not a baby anymore! Anyhow, hubby and I are going to find a decent school for  her next month. Yup, she will start kindergarten soon this coming August.
 I've been really stressed out lately. You might say "yeah right, stressed out to what". Well, it's very stressful and frustrating teaching a 4-year old how to read and write. I don't know how to increase the level of my patience. Teaching is not my passion.
I'm glad my daughter is eager to learn. So to make our school consistent, I decided to make her a weekly schedule. I thought the idea was fantastic! She knows her routine very well. What a great way to start the year!
She is doing pretty well. She can write her full name, abc's and numbers. Now she can read 50+ words (2-5 letters). I'm proud of you anak! Sorry if mama is too harsh on you. I just want you to get prepared when you start going to school.

Uncle Mikes Accessories

Our newly purchased house is located in a suburban area. We like our location a lot. It is a very quite and peaceful neighborhood. One thing I love the most is we have a pond outside our backyard. Everyday I see different kinds of birds and ducks hanging out at the pond. I wish I could climb over the fence and watch them, but it is impossible for me to do that. I guess I have to get one of those uncle mikes binoculars. I can use it while peeking from our window.

How's your weekend everyone? I hope you had a good one. Our weekend went pretty well. Anyhow, this is my entry for this week's Blue Monday.
I have not been focused on teaching my daughter lately. I know shame on me! Now that I'm almost done packing our stuff, I'll make sure to teach her each day. She will be going to kindergarten shortly. I took this video a few days ago. My daughter went upstairs and brought a book and a pen, and then she told me she wants to study. So we had a short! Sorry anak, I've been pretty occupied lately.
Good luck anak, keep up the good work!

Outdoor Lightning

It’s been a month since we moved in to our new house. I can’t believe how time flies these days. I thought we just moved a week ago. Our house is not fully furnished yet. There are a lot of things to be done. This is what happen when you purchase a new home. Unlike older houses, you don’t need to worry about landscaping, outdoor lighting, window treatments, and etc. But this is what we signed up for, so we have to do what we need to do to improve our house.

Acne Products That Work

Do you know which acne products that work? I was talking to my brother on skype a few days ago, and he’s been telling me that he has a serious problem with acne. I knew what he meant because I was once an acne victim before. If you have acne on your face, it lowers your self-stem. It makes you conscious all the time. So I told him to not worry because I will send a treatment for his acne. I hope it works get rid of his unwanted acne.

I have no clue what kind of critter this is, do you know?

Marithe Francois Girbaud Bag

I believe most women love to shop a lot and tend to buy too many bags and shoes. Agree ladies? Well, it's hard to admit but I am one of those shopaholic women. My husband joke one time and said "Honey, I went to your closet and didn't realize you have that many! "How many shoes and purses do you need?". I just answered him with a shrug...nyahahaa!

Anyhow, speaking of purses. My mom got this Marithe Francois Girbaud Bag on my 18th birthday. It was a surprise gift from her. She knew I've been drooling to get myself a girbaud bag but I can't afford to buy it. Thanks mother dear. I still have this bag with me. I can't imagine it's been 9 years. This purse is one of my favorites!

MYM: Plane Crackers

This is not a sponsored post.

My family and I are Southwest regulars. Every time we travel somewhere, we always pick Southwest Airlines. I believe they offer affordable air fare rates for economical travelers like us. Plus they offer FREE drinks and snacks, unlike other airlines they don't give you anything.
Here's my daughter enjoying her plane crackers. The pilot handed her a Southwest activity pack. It was very nice of him.
This is my entry for this week's Mellow Yellow Monday.
