If there is one thing that I am most passionate about, it is volunteering. I've done a few volunteer jobs since I was in high school and I've done a few community services in college as well. I like to help others, and it's a way of giving back for all the blessings and good things in my life. It gives me a good feeling of accomplishment, and pleasure to help other people who are in needs.
I've been here in the US for almost 6 years, and has no work experience. The only work experience I have that I'm very proud of is doing some voluntary jobs. I think my husband and I have volunteered for over 5 organizations from the past 5 years. Last year we volunteered at his previous company, Delegata.
promo girl? Nay, it's called presenting sponsor...:)
This year we are hoping to find some voluntary works in our city.
This is my entry for this week's Nostalgia. And by the way, hope you can stop by at my newly published BLOG. Thanks!

100 Dogs

There was an employee of Outdoor Adventures in Canada who claimed that sled dogs were slaughtered due to the downturn of the economy. Joey Houssian, who owns the company, said that he didn't' know anything about the slaughter. There were a lot of discrepancies in the employee's story that Joey points out. Joey has had many media meetings to give his side of the story. Joey loves dogs and would have never have never knowingly slaughtered the 100 dogs claimed by the employee. If you are wanting to know more about this Canadian story, you will want to read this article online.


Last Friday, the landscaper people delivered and installed the sods and mulches in our backyard. It took them 3 hours to finish the job. Our initial plan was to let them do the whole landscaping project, but since we are on a tight budget right now, we decided to just do the gardening by ourselves.
We chose bermuda grass. Bermuda grass is relatively low maintenance and ideal for warm climates, like here in San Antonio. Here's our on going project:
Too much heat exposure. 

Home Speakers

I think having an entertainment center is kind of like owning your own personal movie theater. Am I right? Television has advanced quite a bit from the days of old black and white with fuzzy pictures, these days big screen entertainment centers have become the rave. I noticed many people are now buying big screen tvs to take television viewing to a higher level. A few of my in-laws have 50”-60” flat screen tv with high end home speakers. My husband would love to get one of those home speakers for Christmas.

Blue Cross

Health insurance is important part of life for most Americans. It is to be considered the vital part of life to make it secure and free from financial problems in the time of sickness. In other countries, most people can’t afford health insurance. My family are very fortunate to have a reliable health insurance like the Blue Cross of NC. We used to be a Blue Cross card holder, but not anymore because my husband moved to another company.

Back Acne Treatment

I was giving my husband a back massage the other day, and noticed some small bumps on his back. I did not realized those are back acne. I mentioned it to him but he told me to ignore it. No wonder why he likes to scratch his back all the time. I am thinking of getting him a back acne treatment. I hope it helps him stop scratching his back.

Affordable Cigars

Are you a cigar smoker? Cigars became the most popular in the early of 21st century. A lot of people thought that cigars are only for celebrities and rich people but that is not true. There are lot of cheap cigars in the market today. Last year, I bought my father a pack of cigars on Father’s day. He never had cigars before. He said that cigars are far way better than cigarettes. I am hoping to send him a new brand of cigar like the Davidoff cigars I saw online. He would be delighted!

It's Mommy Moments once again. This week's theme is purple. So purple it is! Aside from pink, purple is one of my daughter's favorite colors.

A day at the park.
Photo was taken last year during our visit to Seaworld, San Antonio.

Souvenirs From South Carolina

My Nostalgia entry for this week is late. I know I am super late, sorry badingding. I've been pretty occupied lately. Anyhow, here's my entry for this week.
These are the souvenirs from South Carolina. Hubby went to Shaw Air Force base for two weeks on his annual tour in the military. When he got back, he brought us some stuff. He bought the Texas shot glass during his lay over in San Antonio.

Incredible Piece from India

A month ago, hubby's boss went on a business trip to India. He got back a few weeks ago. Hubby's boss is very nice because he bought each member of his team an incredible souvenir from India. I believe it is called Jaipur Miniature Painting.
According to my research, this beautiful painting was hand made on an Official Document of an old Sultanate in Northern India called Jaipor. This document represents a Court’s Resolution in that Sultanate and is dated 1904 AD. The Emblem you see in the top of leaf is a Tax Stamp for the court.
The paper used is antique court stamp paper. The stamp signifies the court fee paid. Since the amount paid is in "annas". There are writings all over the place (in a script/language) that I cannot read.
I found some jaipur pieces in ebay, and each painting costs at least $175.00.

Rainforest Cafe

Have you ever been to Rainforest Cafe? Rainforest Cafe is a themed restaurant chain owned by Landry's Restaurants, Inc. of Houston, Texas.
We've been wanting to eat at this place since we used to live in California. I saw one in San Francisco and one in Las Vegas. I'm glad they have a branch here in San Antonio.
Last weekend, hubby suggested to eat at Rainforest cafe near the riverwalk. The food was ok, but I like the ambiance the most.
Each Rainforest Cafe restaurant is designed to depict some features of a rainforest, including plant growth, mist, waterfalls, animatronic robots of animals and insects. To enhance this theme, the restaurants are populated by animatronic figures 
Large marine aquariums are common in most restaurants. Automated water sprinklers and synchronized lights set to specific patterns are also featured. A simulated thunderstorm occurs every thirty minutes, utilizing simulated rain as well as flashing lights and high-powered subwoofers for lightning and thunder. It was a great experience. 

Spill Berms

Did you know that the SEI spill berms provide containment for material that can be hazardous? There's a lot of information online about spill berms that you should read to get more information. The SEI Industries is offering a variety of spill containment berms that can meet your needs. If you work with hazardous material and need a reliable way to contain the hazardous material, you might want to checkout SEI Industries. They have containment berms to support small and large needs for spill controls.

Mommy Moments: Green

It's another Mommy Moments episode, and the theme for this week is GREEN. Here's my entry.
This photo was taken last year, I think she wore this green outfit during St. Patrick's day. Speaking of St. Patties, we are hoping to join the parade this weekend. 
This photo was also taken during St. Patrick's day. Akesha was less than a year old at that time.

Log Cabins

Have you been dreaming of living around log cabins? You can stay in an authentic log cabin which is in the middle of beautiful trees along the glacier-fed Kicking Horse River. These log cabins are located in the Canadian Rockies which is one of the finest places to spend your vacation. You can get away from the television, telephone and other annoying disruptions and enjoy the great outdoors like they were meant to be enjoyed. These cabins were established in 1885 and is located in Yoho National Park which is one of the 41 national parks in Canada. If you want a nice get away, you should consider the Yoho National Park.

Junk Bins

You need to consider getting junk bins to help you with your debris removal service. Junk Bins in North Vancouver can help you get rid of the debris to prevent any hazardous material being left on a job site. It can reduce the chances of someone getting injured. It can also help a job running smoother. This can be a better way to go because in Downtown Vancouver, you can get rid of your drywall, dirt, sod, gravel and even old appliances using these junk bins. So if you live in Burnaby, Surrey & Delta, you need to consider using junk bins to get rid of the junk at your job site.

Community Week Celebration

It was 6 years ago when I worked as an accounting clerk at our local Municipal Office in the Philippines.  I got hired right after I graduated from college. I was pretty lucky working at a government sector. Some people thought I got hired because my father is a politician and he's friends with the Mayor.....waaa! I proved them wrong, and I worked my b**t off and showed them that I am qualified for the job.
I love working at Treasury Department. And I miss working with my "ates" and "kuyas". After 10 months of experience, my life has changed in the blink of an eye. I got married and left the Philippines...waaaaaa!
Debits, credits,! I seriously miss my job. Lucky is the person who replaced my position. 
During our community week parade...I used to be a MUSE...nyahahhaa!
Thanks badingding for hosting this meme....:)

ABC Wednesday

This week's ABC Wednesday letter is itch! Oh, I mean letter H.....:) H is for Horns and Horse

One of the best spots to visit in San Antonio is the Enchanted Springs Ranch. It's an inexpensive place to have fun with kids! Everything is included with admission (tractor ride, puppet show, pistal packin paula, stunt show, and more. 
Horse ride....:)
 It is definitely a fun place to take the kids to see what a ranch is like. My daughter enjoyed seeing all of the animals on the tractor ride as well as sitting on Woodrow the Long Horn and riding a horse.

I Need New Table Lamps

My husband and I bought a new leather reclining sofa and loveseat last Christmas. We purchased both items at It’s the biggest online purchase we have so far. At first we were kind of hesitant buying these items online because we don’t want to end up spending thousands of dollars, and not satisfied with the quality of the furniture. It was a big risk, but I already knew that CSNStores is a trusted and reliable shopping store online. We are very pleased with the furniture when it arrived. The size is perfect and quality looks great!
Now I’m eyeing for table lamps. I would want to get a contemporary table lamps that will brighten up our living room. I believe that table lamps are one of the easiest, most popular and cost effective ways to enhance the lighting and decor of the home. How about you? What type of table lamps do you like?

Dining Out at A Steak Buffet

I was supposed to barbecue last Saturday but we did not get home on time. We were busy running errands. So instead of cooking at home, we went out to eat at a steak buffet place called Coyote Canyon.
I honestly don't like their food except the steak. They're serving old food...yuck! I would not go back to that place again. 
But the little miss seems to like her fries, fruits, and pizza. 
She loves this dessert. I don't know what it's called.

Shopping for Books

My daughter will turn 5 years old next month. I can't believe she's almost five. Time really goes by super fast!
I am proud of my daughter because she is a fast learner. Honestly, I don't know a lot of 4-year old who has a passion for reading. For her, going to the bookstore is like going to an amusement park. Now she's more interested in shopping for books over toys. 
getting ready to swipe the!
She bought 3 books read. Photos were taken last Saturday @ Barnes & Nobles.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is considered as a more cost effective and long lasting alternative to traditional roofing products. Although it is considered as one of the lightest group of materials available in the market, it surpasses other roofing materials when tested against other elements such as hail, wind and fire. Metal roofs are recyclable as well, allowing it to be included on the listings of ‘green’ and recycled content products. Although the initial cost of metal roof is slightly higher that other common alternatives, the benefits you will get from metal roofing panel outweigh the initial cash out.

Mommy Moments: Orange

Orange is not my daughter's typical color. She loves purple, blue, and pink. When it comes to clothing, orange is the least color I would buy for Akesha.

This is my entry for this week's Mommy Moments. Photo was taken when Akesha was 2 & 1/2 years old.

Vacation Rental Homes

Evening of Elegance

I was 5-month old pregnant with Akesha when these photos were taken. I was super ugly when I got pregnant. I had pimples all over my face....waaaaa!
Hubby's former company invited us to celebrate an annual party at one of the famous galleria in California. And the theme was "Evening of Elegance". It was a wonderful celebration. And it was my first time meeting the CEO of the company.
A dancing preggy lady....:)

Sorry for the late entry sisRose, I've been pretty busy lately. Sensya na po!

Stamina Bikes

No matter what excuses we have for not doing something to achieved a healthy lifestyle, there's only one person to blame - our own self.

A curio cabinet is a very popular piece of furniture. Many households invested on a beautiful curios because its design helps beautify ones home. The primary purpose of a curio is to store and display collectables. Most often than not, they are put in a place where it will become a focal point. Anyway, I have collected beautiful angel figurines and I want them to be displayed in our new abode. I think that a curio cabinet will be a perfect place to put all my angel collection. I think that I will opt to buy a bigger curio because I am sure that my angel collection will grow in the coming years.


I was browsing through cabinets and storages in my favorite online home furnishing shop awhile back. I was curious about this one particular product – the curio. They are lovely, sturdy and affordable display cabinets. They’re designs are just perfect for my kitchen or dining area and there is a wide array of products to choose from. You can either opt for a wall curio, or a corner curio, Pulaski curio or a glass curio cabinet. These cabinets are so versatile, you can choose a design fit for your contemporary den, or traditional dining room with amazing features such as interior lighting and adjustable shelving. What is best is that you can order one in the comfort and safety of your home. Isn’t that great?

Jogger Stroller

Gone are the days when your choice for buying a stroller is limited to some brands that offer just that – a stroller! Nowadays, your options and the possibilities seem to border on endless. Manufacturers have created strollers to meet certain qualifications and specifications. For example, if you were the outdoorsy type of parents who would definitely tote the baby along when you go for a hike or a climb, there is a specific type and brand of strollers you can go to meet that specific need. In the same manner, if you were a fitness buff, you can purchase a jogger stroller to keep up with you and your baby’s phase.


If you were a first time mom in dire need of ideas on what to buy for your much-awaited bundle of joy, you come to the right place. Here are a few tips on before-the-big-day-arrives shopping spree:
- Buy only what is essential so there is no reason to hoard on those cute blankies
- You won’t have a need for multiple strollers in the future, it is best to invest on a multi-functional durable one than buy three different ones
- Your baby will outgrow those shirts and shorts faster than you think so a dozen will probably suffice, you will have more time to buy more when the right time comes.

Full headboards are ideal for beds used by children who want that extra space where they can stretch out.

Headboards also have different types. For bookworms who want to show off his book collection and at the same time have his books close at hand, there is the bookcase headboard.

Only eight years after becoming South Shore Furniture’s chairman, Guy Laflamme has three factories running smoothly.

A console table, also called sofa table, is placed behind the back of the sofa. They are typically found against the wall of hallways. If the hallway is narrow, putting a mirror above the console table makes the hallway appear spacious.

Sleigh Beds

If I only have that much choice in life, I would definitely try living the stylish way. Ever wonder how is it like laying on a sleigh bed? Seriously, sleigh beds are bed that simply resembles a sleigh bed, thus the name. But what makes it out of ordinary is because they are made for great value and fashion.

The idea of this type of bed was classically formulated as the result of the great French and American Empire designs of the early 1800s. A conventional sleigh bed in the olden times used to be full in size, wide and mostly dark in colors. But the modern manufacturers are now giving more options in terms of finishes and that’s why you can now shop for sleigh beds in various colors and in different sizes.


Big or small we want every room in our home furnished… more so the living room as it is where we receive guests and we therefore want to always make it look attractive in every way possible way. And adding a piece of furniture to it like an elegant sofa will do the twist.

The larger the living room the wider the options you will have. While a loveseat could make a perfect addition to a new couple’s room, sectionals on the other hand allows you to organize and tailor the sofa to the shape of your room. There’s actually hundreds of beautiful design to choose from when it comes to home furnishing ideas. You just got to have the right budget and everything will just fall into place.

Twin Over Full

I was talking to my brother a couple of weeks ago, and he asked me if I know a place where he can get a bunk bed. He is planning to purchase a bunk bed for his 2 kids, and he wants a twin over full size bunk bed. I really have no idea what he was talking about not until I search about twin over full bunk bed online. I have never heard of that type of bed before. While I was browsing on the web, I saw some great deals from So I told my brother to visit the website. I would like to get one for my daughter, but I don’t know if she likes bunk beds.

Twin Over Twin

All kids love bunk beds. Most of my nieces and nephews have twin over twin bunk beds. I thought a bunk bed is a great idea when you have a few kids in the house. Bunk beds are great space-savers and they are economical. They are essentially two beds in one that do not require box springs,and they are very practical. So if you are looking for affordable and good quality bunk beds, you should check out This website carry brands like Lea and Young America bunk beds. You should visit them today for details.

Kitchen Cart

Don’t you just love buying stuff for the kitchen? I get excited whenever I walk up to the kitchen or home section in a department store. I’d browse at their lovely displays, rows upon rows of lovely teacups and beautiful plates and dinner ware contemplating which to buy first when I found the time, and not to mention the budget! I would always find something interesting enough to buy, a pair of lovely floral glasses, paired with an equally beautiful dish rack, or a hand towel or that sturdy yet looking-classy kitchen cart that would go well with my countertop.

Weber Grill

I simply love outdoor activities during summertime. A stroll in the park on a lazy afternoon, or a barefooted walk in a sandy beach, swimming + surfing, or simply roaming around like a beach bum to work on my tan. I love hot air balloon rides and picnics. I love going to farms and pick organically grown fruits and vegetables for a refreshing and appetizing dinner. Or I would sit up by the porch, curled up with my favorite book but still taking in as much of the early morning sun as I could. But what I love the most is the Sunday barbecue with the Weber Grill in constant action in the front lawn.

Weber Genesis e320

Summer has always been my favorite season of the year. Mostly because you need no excuses to have friends over for a barbecue. It's funny because it is not even summer yet, but I've been grilling in our backyard almost everyday. The weather here in Southern Texas right now is perfect for outdoor activities.

Last weekend while I was busy barbecuing, my husband suggested that we should get a new grill. I have no problem on getting a new grill. I thought it would be great  if we have a new Weber Genesis e320 grill. My husband is right, it is about time to replace our old gas grill.

Home Bars

I’ve been in a friend’s house and I notice her cozy home bar. It’s a modern design which is very attractive and sophisticated with a safety storage bottle. Well, I may not be a liquor drinker but for sure my husband will love it if we have one of those cozy home bars at home. It’s definitely entertaining especially during family gatherings. How I love our visitor to sit on a fashionable stool while having glass of wine. That is surely entertaining. I know my husband will be drooling over it while I also love to have that cozy bar at home, and so I’ll try to contact my Interior Designer friend who did our very efficient kitchen layout few years ago. I hope I get him before I change my mind.

Weber Genesis

Summer is my favorite time of the year. It is the perfect time for vacation and fun barbecue get-together. It is a fantastic time for family fun and gathering friends for good times and great food. Weber genesis grill would be a perfect barbecue grill for the party. You can get Weber grills at CSgrills.

Home Bar

I have always wanted to have a home bar, so that when guests and visitors are in the house, I can easily serve them drinks, or I can even make some delicious cocktails. I remember visiting an old friend’s house and saw a home bar there. It was there that my fascination and liking for home bars started. My friend was looked so “professional” when he served us some refreshments, they also had wines and some wine glasses placed in one part of the bar. It was a delight to see. When I got married, I started looking for a home bar. There a few here and they’re big and wouldn’t fit in our small house. Although I saw a small one, but it’s not sturdy and strong. Maybe I can ask our carpenter to make me one. I think I will do that.

Sleigh Bed

I am the type of person who likes contemporary and/or modern designs when it comes to furniture, even building designs and architecture. I just love having simple and straight lines. The house we live in now has a classical touch. It has so many curves and I really don’t like the feeling of living in a “kingly” or “queenly” way. Anyway, when I get to have my own house, I would love to have the contemporary design. For the bedroom, I would like to have a sleigh bed, for the living room, a sectional sofa with a simple design, and a functional kitchen. I know this entails lots of money, and for that, I will have to work hard to achieve in a few years time.


I remember my mom asking for a recliner last year. She said she wanted to be more relaxed when she’s watching her favorite noontime show. So my hubby and I went to the mall and checked out the recliners available. But to our surprise, we only found two or three recliner seats, two of those were already on sale because they had some tears and scratches. We went around town but unfortunately, we never saw one that would really suit my mom's needs. Good thing that during those times, there was an ongoing agri-business fair in our town and a booth was selling bamboo recliners, at an affordable price at that! So we immediately bought it and true indeed, my mom loved it.

Sofa Sets

Every time we visit the mall, I never fail to visit the home and furniture section. I always love to check out the new sofa sets and kitchen essentials. It has always been my dream to have a house of our own, with a nice living room, a functional kitchen, a clean bathroom, and so much more. It’s not that we don’t have now, but it’s best if the house I live in now is really the one I dream of. Someday, one of these days, my hubby and I will build our dream house! Someday! For now, I can only satisfy myself by checking out the furniture section.

Dining Furniture

We purchased a new dining set a few months ago. Prior to our relocation from California to Texas, our old dining table got damaged. I was upset when I found out about it. My husband told me not to worry because he might be able to fix it. He tried to fix the broken leg, but unfortunately he messed up. So we decided to buy new dining furniture. We're pretty lucky because we got a great deal when we purchase our dining set.


For those who didn’t know what a headboard is, it is a fraction of furniture that is attached to the head of a bed. The main usage of the headboard is to isolate the people who are sleeping from cold walls. Some people put  headboards on their beds in order to have comfort in reading or while watching a television. A headboard maybe made of wood or metal, there are different designs and there are different colors available.

Dining Tables

The bedroom will not be complete without the bed, and the dining room will not be complete without the dining set. A dining set includes a dining table and dining chairs. Dining tables are the main equipment that would complete a dining room. A home owner could choose from different styles that are available in different stores, they can even order it online. A glass dining set is sometimes not a good choice if your house is located near earthquake areas; you better choose a dining set made of wood for better protection in times of earthquakes.


A house is divided into different rooms. A living room, a dining room and a couple of bedrooms comprises a simple home. If living room is the receiving area for the visitors of the home owners, the bedroom is where the owner of the house keeps her or his personal things. It is where their clothes, jewelries, shoes and other personal things are kept. It is where they sleep and it is where they can call their own little space aside from the whole house. It is where they change their clothes and where they kept their most valuable possessions.

Coffee Table

A coffee table is not only for people who love to drink a cup of coffee before going to start their day or while reading daily newspapers. It is also for people who loves to decorate their homes and for those who loves to have guests in their homes every now and then. Many interior decorators know what type and color of coffee tables would look good with modern type of houses or the typical bungalow type. Families who would love to spend their afternoon’s storytelling with their children can make good use of this part of the house.

Kitchen Carts

It was six months ago when my husband and I decided to purchase a new house. It took us a month to find  the right home for us. Our initial plan was to get a 3000sq feet 5-bedroom house, but we quickly realized that we don’t need a big space and we don't want the maintenance of a big house. So instead we bought a 4-bedroom house.  One thing I love about our new house is the kitchen. The size is twice as bigger than I expected. I’m thinking of getting one those kitchen carts I saw online. A kitchen cart would be a perfect addition to our kitchen.

A couple of months ago I purchased a princess bed for my 4-year old daughter. It was a great deal I found online. I’m talking about a real great deal. The bed was on sale and it comes with a FREE bed frame, plus it’s FREE shipping. I wish I can find another deal online because I am planning to buy a new bed for our master’s bedroom. I donated our old two beds to goodwill during our relocation from California to Texas a few months ago, and I think now is the perfect time to get a new one.

Bedroom Furniture

Shopping for bedroom furniture is not easy as it sounds. It’s been awhile since I started looking around for affordable bedroom furniture, but I haven’t bought yet. My husband and I went to our local furniture outlet last weekend, hoping to see if we can buy a couple of bedroom furniture items for our room. I found some items that I like but my husband said that it’s kind of expensive. He was right! The price tags are beyond our budget, and it's too expensive. So we decided to leave. On our way home, my husband suggested that I should check online to see if I can find a better deal on bedroom furniture.
