We are looking for Family Insurance Plans with the best rates. It is good to have this kind of insurance than having individual ones since we are a family now. That would not only cover us but our children as well. Insurance Quoting Services are now available online, so it really saves my time than going to insurance offices which can really be tiring. Who wouldn't love to get a quotation at the comfort of your home? Lastly, we are searching for the cheaper insurance rates because there are still other things that we need to fund for the coming years, like Joaquin's schooling. I would really feel great if ever we can get a good deal by this year.
It's here!!! I already placed my order at their website., This is a one of a kind planner, because it has lots and lots of discount coupons (36 in all) from stores like Flip Flops/Havaianas, Bayo, BYSI, Celine, Charles and Keith, Chocolate Clothing, Claw Daddy, CMG, Cocorama, Crustasia, Culte Femme Rustans, Cupcakes by Sonja's, Fiorgelato/Fiorcafe, FlyWear Eyewear, Freeway, Get Happy Accessories, Heaven 'N Eggs, Karimadon, Kashieca, Laybare Waxing Salon, Levi's Girls Store, Luna Rustans, Maybelline, Moschino Fragrances, New Orleans Restaurant, RedCrab Seafood Club, RedBox, Rred Rustans, So! Fab, The Ramp Crossings, Tomato, VNC, and Ace Water Spa!
It also contains affirmations , articles, menstrual period tracker, time management tools etc etc.. At the discounted price of Php 548, it's really a steal! check out http://www.belledejourpowerplanner.com
This is the ultimate fashion planner!
Now I know, my dad will get even more excited with this. He doesn't need to dress up, and drive all the way to Las Vegas for a fun filled casino game. I do wish him luck too, because for sure, if he will be lucky enough to win, then I can ask for some shopping money. Are you into casinos? Better try this one. Good Luck!
ano? ipasuot ko ba? hahha! lagot tayo pag hinika!

I really cant get enough , I know. My mom too, she bought me a lot recently. I think you should have seen her shoe collection before she migrated, walang sinabi mga sapatos ko. LOL :) Notice, no wedges or stilettos? Oh , and my office shoes are not included too. I had a "choose, grab and run away with my shoes" day early this year. As in pinamigay ko pati office shoes, coz I know, i wont be working na hehehe :) I will try to update this site for some of my shoes . And you might just wonder, cheap lang ang ibang shoes ko, as in! I just love to wear different pairs every single day.. aylavet! That's my therapy.. retail therapy, not to mention closet theraphy, hahaha!
So to answer Jody's question, i have 24 pairs of shoes posted here :) Thanks Jody :)
1. Canvass tote bag at Tomato Store.. its php 200 each, and if its not too much to ask, can i have 2? para 4oo sakto ;) i want the brown one (print is 2 girls facing each other yata) and the yellow one please:) you'll spot it easily sa store.
2. a paddle brush for my hair , or if its more than 400, any hairbrush will do.

Yes, that's the Holy Family , and he isa carrying it around our room the other day. I asked our maid to wipe it clean, and the little boy cried to death when our maid took the image from him. He was crying while saying "Papa Jesus.. Papa Jesus..".. I was laughing out loud! Is this because he doesnt have any toy to hug? (he has asthma so no stuffed toys for him). And look at that first pic, parang kinakausap nya diba? Oh my ! And he is hugging it too while watching Barney. I'm telling you, this image is heavy, so i am following him whenever he carries it around. Would he be a priest soon? Let's see. Would you believe I dreamed of being a nun when I was at Grade four?! Yeah, I always read the bible then, and i got close with my religion teacher who happens to be a nun :) Now, I want another baby boy, baka kasi magpari ang panganay ko.
* pardon the pics, i just used our webcam for that... **

finally, after that i was transferred to the sup! haay, actually hindi na yung connection ko ang ni report ko, but this agent na walang etiquette at all. I even asked if he is new pero hindi naman daw. So matagal na pla sya and he still don't know how to handle calls. Im giving them til sunday, and im thinking of pulling out my account, i dont care if they have a lock in period of one year.. basta i wont pay them na, and wala akong pakialam kahit i disconnect pa nila ko. bwiset!
If ever we will be granted a visa by next year, I am so definite that Beverly Hills would be on our top list to visit. But as of now that I don't have one yet, I just feast my eyes on websites that offers the very best of beverly hills shopping . First to look for would be clothes of course! A lot of designer brands are situated here and they also have online stores that I can check for now. I would also need to take note of the Rodeo Drive Map found on the websites. Of course, shopping won't be complete if I won't buy anything for the little boy. He is so much into tboys now so I need to check for toyshops. I would also need to research on stores for our DSLR and our latest laptop. Lastly , I found this online shop that sells contemporary dinnerware which I find so beautiful and elegant. I would love to have one for our new dining table. I got so excited with the website and the products it offers, because it is located at the heart of Beverly Hills. I can ask my cousin to go and check it out for me because I am really eyeing on a lot of home products. Items like table top items, china wares, linens , watches and fine jewelries really caught my eye. Now, I really can't wait to see the store.
But since I don't have the visa yet, I will just keep on visiting the online store to check on their new arrivals and most of all, I love to check for markdowns. I already saw a very stylish blue bracelet that would be perfect for dinners or parties. Oh, is it shopping time again? Might as well include that bracelet in my Christmas wishlist.

I spotted a red version of this couture short at Topshop Podium last month, but the price is Php 2000 + ! Huwaaatt! So I had no choice but to place it back on the rack. I was a bit sad then, i want it badly coz i know the style would hide my "puson".. I even went back to topshop to check it out a week after, it was still there in flaming red!I didnt even bother to show it to Gelo. It would be too much for 2K!.. A week after, I spotted a somewhat the same style at Folded and Hung (but i just love the one from topshop more), I had 4 outfits to try on that time, including the shorts.. LOL. I feel great with the shorts, but since i'm wearing a long graphic top, parang it doesnt match at all. I ended up buying a choco brown jumpsuit (still in shorts), and gawd.. love it! love it! I won't be posting a pic, coz I'm planning to wear it next month, at the Mommy bloggers christmas party.. hehehe :) excited! wish ko lang kasya pa, I eat a lot na naman..grrrr! diet! diet!
I am actually thinking of getting this kind of software for our online shop. It is affordable, easy to use, and they have a technical support group that can assist us during the set up. What is also good about this software is its accessibility. It is integrated with major banks, credit cards and even paypal. That would be a great help for the customers too. Not to mention that they can place and track their orders easily. I just wish that online shops would get this kind of shopping cart software so that customers would be more willing to shop online knowing that it's easy and safe.
I even asked her to stop saying " i do apologize" ,, and "sorry for the inconvenience".. heard that a thousand times. feeling ko nga kahit ano sabihin ko that's her answer. So I said to her " i know, it's part of your script, it's in your metrics, to say those words for QA, but can you please try to rephrase it? or think of something else, bleeding na tenga ko eh"..
And here's more.. I said to her " My business depends on the internet, do you have any idea how much i'm losing now?" (naksss! negosyante!)... "Mababalik ba ng sorry mo, and ng apologies mo yung nawala sa kin?"....And she replied.." Ma'am, pwede nyo naman po pa rebate yung time na wala kayong connection, i deduct po sa bill nyo".. GRRRRR! Maloloka na yata ako.. So I repeated my question and told her na yes or no lang ang sagot sa question ko. I was so desperate na and i asked for her supervisor..Grabe, i spent 30 mins yata on the phone, and the best part of it all, im carrying joaquin because the little boy is asleep. Partida ko pa yun sa kanila, nagpapatulog ako ! Ok, back to work muna.
I am recommending this site to my uncle who owns a pick up type of vehicle for his business. He can be assured that his products are well-covered and secured. This would also protect the interior of his vehicle, protecting it from the sun and rain. Gelo is also thinking of purchasing one for their van. He is comparing the two popular brand names from the site. It is good to get reviews from previous customers first before deciding which style to buy. We are so lucky to land on this site because it offers the best price we could ever get.

1. a coin purse - No particular brand or design yet, so I might update this later. I badly need one. But whatever style would be ok, i trust my fellow mom's style :)
2. a long necklace , wag lang heart ung pendant coz i have 2 already:)
3. body wash with a long lasting scent - like the ones at body shop
4. make up kit at essences - its in black.. some combinations has plastic cases pa.
if ever i will see a specific style or store where to buy the items, i will post it asap :) thanks!

The name of her blog says it all. She is little miss shop a lot!.. If I'm sick with shopping, then she is worse, she is dying, hahaha! I can't blame her, she has money, and still single, and she shops for me, for joaquin and for gelo, how could i possibly stop her, right? I love reading her new blog (she's blogging at multiply before).. she even has this "What kind of shopper are you" post last September, and she personally classified her own shopping styles, effort talaga, i thought it was was one of those quizzes, but I was wrong.
So for her latest addiction.. take a look..
Thanks sister! Hindi ka naman addict.. I wish i can do that in one power shopping.. LOL *inggit!* Take care and we will definitely see each other on May '08.
1. Are there any babies in your family or circle of friends?
There's a baby boom in our family. Joaquin is not the youngest anymore. Aside from his 4 cousins who are all older than him, I have a 5 month old nephew (from my cousin), and one about to pop on Feb. But if you'll ask on my HS friends, wala pa. From college none pa din. Hehehe.. Manang at Manong mga friends namin, they are not even married yet. Except for Sierra of Erika.
2. Are you one of those people who use a high-pitched, sing-song voice when talking to babies and small children?
Not really. I guess my voice is naturally sweet sounding,, hahaha! Joke!
3. If you were standing in line next to a *very* pregnant stranger at the bank or grocery store, what would you say to her?
Nothing. I don't usually open up conversations to strangers, not unless her water bag would break infront of me.. ibang usapan na yun.
4. Similarly, what do you say or do near babies in public?
I smile most of the times, then i tell Joaquin to say HI (with matching wave of his hand).. Then if the kid is ok with my son, I make chika to the mom :)
5. When walking through a department store, are you the sort of person who can go by the baby clothes without even a glance or do you have to stop to ooh and ahh?
I always make it a point to check the baby section, not primarily for the clothes but for toys, and other gears. We all know that boys always stick with shirts, polo shirts, shorts and pants. So there's nothing new for them. really hehehe :) I look for sale items though. But I seldom buy, I am fortunate that my mom, dad and sis shops for his clothes. He has something to wear til he reach 5 years old, believe me. Even shoes, madami pa syang stocks. I just shop for Pj's and sandos.
I Had fun answering Aggie! Thanks!
Now it's your turn, Erika, Ann, Alpha and Jacque
I am still in the practicing mode in doing layouts. What can you say?
I love this pic of Joaquin at PINR, he enjoys the sand , the beach and this small boat. I think the aquashoes my mom gave him was a big help during our walks, he was never afraid of the sand at all. I'm looking forward to May 2008, we might go back to Bohol with my sisters and cousins. *crossfingers*.. Can you tell if i'm excited? hehehehe...

** By your Side (Sade) - our wedding song. Heard from an episode at sex and the city , and from then on i fell in love with it.
** All my Love (innervoices)- from the dreamsounds album. This song will forever remind me of Gelo.
** Didn't we almost have it all (whitney houston) - i always sing this sa karaoke, yeah karaoke pa that time. I guess i was 6 or 7 yrs old then.
** Supersonic (JJ FAD) - who wouldn't remember this hit? It was used by my sis for her Ms. United Nation's talent portion, yey! heheheh
** Get here (O. Adams?) - My ultimate videoke piece aside from the songs of Joey Albert. And yes, kinanta ko pa yan sa Zirkoh Timog :) My first and only stint, never na naulit hahaha
** No Ordinary Love (Jennifer Love Hewitt) - reminds me of my college life and my dear college bestfriend, June.
That's all I can think of right now. Feel free to do this tag if you haven't done it yet,, have fun!
After all, happiness is relative. Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you have decided to see life beyond the imperfections. Don't be happy because everything is alright. Be happy because everything sucks but you're still doing fine.
Yes, my life is not perfect. I am not perfect.

I still don't have my pair of Melissa sapatilha or anything design that would fancy me. We went to Rustan's at Shang last week before we went to Linden Suites, but they only have the Zigzag Campana in Lilac, and the other model (sorry forgot the name) in red color. It was a nice design too, and it is extremely soft (with a sweet smell) , but I have a red flat shoe coming from my mom, so I didn't bought it na lang. And besides, there's no "love at first sight" between me and the shoe, so I didn't bother at all. I am willing to wait for the perfect Melissa for me.. Yeah! That's the spirit. And speaking of shoes, i haven't done yet the tag from Jody, asking me how many shoes do I own.. Ngarag pa, pasensya na.

what is your most expensive purchase with your own money? walang daya...
Most of the things I own were given by my mom, dad or by Gelo. Hmm.. maybe the Nokia 6610 that I was able to buy because of my swarovski creations, i designed and hand made necklaces, earrings and bracelets before. I never had enough money because I never experienced working that long, LOL.
For my question, " what is something that you bought that you find reaally useless, hehehe:)"
Im tagging Jean, KAthy, Kelly and Melisse.

Can you tell me how many shoes do you have, Peachy ?
I just love this question.. Thanks Jody :) Honestly I am clueless on how many shoes I have right now. I WILL COUNT ALL OF THEM, PROMISE :) If time would permit, I would love to take their pics too. I am so excited for this, sayang, i'll be busy tomorrow for the house blessing. I'll try to count on sunday, for the mean time, magsusulat muna ako ng shoe list hehe.
My first ever layout for the little boy. I chanced upon ths cute QP and I thought of using it for these shots taken last weekend at The Linden Suites. He loves showing us those random cute faces. He even enjoyed playing with the tripod, looks like photography will soon be his hobby too.
Speaking of Linden Suites, I haven't posted some of our pics. I am kinda busy today, because tomorrow will be our house blessing. I bought RED candles this morning at Divi, yes, red.. hehehe. A few ribbons, and outfit for sissy and me. We will be wearing the shades of red and white, since the theme of our house is black , red and white. I wanted to wear a black and white top, pero kumontra si Ate. So i went to tutuban, bought one plain red long top, and one red graphic top. I still need to fix the playroom later. I already cleaned the puzzle mats last night. Later we will go to Dangwa to buy fresh flowers for the altar and for my Mama. It's her birthday too. Tomorrow morning, need to pick up the mini cakes from Joy San Gabriel for our give- aways.
Weee, busy na naman
I stumbled upon allinanchor.com last night, and I got curious on what a marketing blog is. I explore the site to get more knowledge on what they offer. They have a lot of well-written articles which are categorized to blog marketing, brand management and search engine optimization. I admit that I have a little information on search engine optimization, so when I read the article, I was able to grab some useful tips that I can somehow use here at my blog. So if you are maintaining a blog and would like to know more about internet marketing, try reading allinanchor.com today! And be equipped with the knowledge you deserve.

I love working with Quick Pages, good for newbies like me. I am still checking on DS sites, checking out other layouts and downloading freebies of course. If you can recommend good sites (basta free ha), please leave me a note. Thanks :)
Which local or foreign celebrity best describes your style?
I play with fashion. I can be Mikee Cojuangco who stays with the basics, Mariel Rodriguez who is so hip and funky , and Cherie Gil , who is so glam looking ever, i love her style (pareho din kaming maldita hehe)
Now for my Question:
How would you describe your life now in one word? I'm tagging my new online buddies, Ann, Kero, Yvette, and Trinity.
He was still browsing the website when he saw the topic about Colon Cleanse . His dad had a colon operation last year before Christmas, and that started the series of his illness after. He wished that we have read colon cleansing even before so that we have prevented complications after his dad's operation.

So please bear with me and my posts :) See you in a while.
my first ever digiscrapping layout! (clap! clap! clap!)
I wanted to try it out for the longest time, but I got chickened out thinking I won't be able to do it. So last night, I just asked Mitch for some Photoshop techniques and from there we talked about digiscrapping. I had my first layout after following the Shabby Princess tutorials. It is so easy , especially for someone like me who doesn't know how to use the photoshop. I actually have 2 other layouts that I did just this afternoon. Addict ba? I am enjoying it, and I know i still have a long way to go. If u have tips, comments or any other remarks, please. ..please leave me a message.
My special thanks to Mitch, for the encouragement, and for unceasingly helping me , answering my questions, You are such an angel :)
To Gelo and Joaquin for being my inspiration inevery photograph I capture. You always make me feel complete (and loved, of course!)
To my sister Ricca, for being my first model, you are and you will always be my little sister. Kamusta naman ang cleavage sa picture mo? LOL

1. Designer bags. - I would rather have lots of designs in different colors.. para it would match what I wear. Hehehe ang arte. And besides I don't have the money to buy the luxurious ones.
2. Designer Watch - opps Gelo might read this one. Don't worry Dad, ul still get ur watch soon. Not now lang talaga, promise ko yan. He is really wanting this watch for the longest time, and since i'm not voting for something reeaallly expensive, lagi na lang hindi matuloy tuloy ang pagbili nya. Even if you have Casio or whatever.. it would still be the same . Buti sana if ur watch can turn back time, or it can stop time, baka pag isipan ko pang bumili.
3. Cellphones that depreciates after a month or two. - I own a pink Motorola L6 and I'm happy with it. I dont need something with cam kasi we have a cam naman. sabi nga ni Gelo, ang imporant may load ka pang call and text hehehe :) I guess, di lang talaga ako mahilig sa cellphones. See, my motto is I thrift on most things, then i spend on some.. para may sense of equality.. hahaha! Palusot pa!
4. Professional Fees of Doctors and Immunizations - obvious bang suki kasi kami sa pedia? Why does it have to cost u much? wala na bang discount? Would you believe when i gave birth, i have an endocrinologist who charged me 5K for PF. Susme, she never visited me at all in my room. It was just her residents who went to my room and told me to drink my meds (which iam so aware of) even if im breastfeeding and its perfectly safe. Kapal! 5K agad yun for her.. now if ul ask me, im not consulting with her anymore. Mamumulubi ako.
5. My sister, Ricca is overrated I guess. - She has a new blog, and it talks about shopping hahaha! I will post some kwentos soon.
These are a few that I can think of right now. Don't get me wrong... Wala kasi akong pambili ng mahal eh. Yes, I shop a lot, Im aware of that, but I am a bargain hunter, LOL. My line forever is "meron sa 168/tutuban / divisoria nyan". And never naman ako nagkamali(except for authentic designer bags and the likes ha).. most of my clothes and flats are from there. Asahan nyo, pag ako bumili ,mura lang yun. The branded stuff i own ( so as for Gelo and Joaquin), like clothes, bags, shoes, make up.. etc etc are mostly from my mom and my sis. Sometimes the generous dad would buy me and joaquin stuff too *winkwink*.. Ano naman ipambibili ko eh wala nga ako work (thank heaven for paid blogging) ...

I think I'm a bit cool nga when it comes to my Joaquin :) Si daddy ang strict hehehe:) To all the cool moms out there. this is for you! :)
I still have a few money left from my first earnings, so I decided to purchase a flaming red faux croc- patent carry all bag. I need a big bag to carry the little boy's sutff ( plus my make up kit, celfone and wallet). Lookie..
I am awaiting for the shipment maybe tomorrow. I need a red bag, in preparation ( talaga naman) for the red flats my mom is giving me. The only red bag I have for now is quite small..
The daddy gave me a laptop today. It's the Acer Aspire 4710 ( tama ba?, sorry forgot). Thank you so much daddy.. I wasn;t actually asking for one, as I love our newly upgraded PC, but he said na whenever we are out, may mga opportunity lost daw hahaha, LOL! Looks like you are resigning from work soon and you want me to go Blog all day.. joke! Anyway.. whatever is the reason for this gift.. ( may kasalanan ka siguro), thank you so much! It means a lot to me, and I realllyyy appreciate it. Im so excited to use it :)
Click here for the better view of the cake alone :) We had her Kilauea, A choco walnut cake that is so tasteful.. A lot of our guests asked for her contact details after hehehe.
A year after, we met again. I asked her to do the cake for Joaqui's baptism. And here it is.. all edible..as in! Love eating the teddies :)
I wasn't able to get her during Joaqui's birthday, coz I never thought she's into cupcakes na din pala. I saw her cake stall St. Gabbie's at Megamall A, (they also have a place at Market! Market!), they don't have her design cakes there, but they do sell the choco mud cake, which is a must try for choco lovers. I sent her a message last Saturday after seeing her booth, and she said that her blog is up and running, and I was amazed with her new works.. Take a look
Now, you have it and can eat it too-- an all edible apple walnut cake!
To Joy, Thanks for the yummy cakes and for the wonderful friendship. You are more than a supplier for me. I'm actually ordering one for my MIL's birthday on Novemebr. Gelo is craving for the Kilauea Cake.. so might order mini versions so we can give it away to relatives after:)
You can reach Joy at 0917-5278837 :) enJOY the cake!
I will post some later today maybe, pag di tinamad. I wanna do some bloghopping this morning, i miss all of ur kwentos. Thanks for dropping by my blog, and for the 3 awards I received over the weekend.. thanks ! will post that later. Enjoy the rest of the day :)

We might check a few properties there.. If plans will push through, we wanted to transfer in a place far from the noise and pollution of Manila.. seriously. Feeling ko kaya to hinihika, one factor is the environment. So wish us luck to find a good deal. Scouting pa lang naman :) I enjoy open houses.. teehheee!!!
The little boy will play with his cousins there for sure.. Ang likot recently since his cousins would visit him everyday.. He loves sliding his back at the edge of the bed.. as in padulas na parang nasa comfort sya ng isang malaking slide.. then jump off sa mattress on the floor.. swimming daw yun sabi ng cousins nya.. Goodness! Wala ako balak magdala sa ER ng nabalian ng buto! LOL! Joaquin loves to follow his cousins during playtime, hellow.. they are 3-5 yrs old kiddos whose built eh parang buddha.. LOL.. and he is just 1 year and 6 mos! .. Our room is a mess.. DVD's , books and tous all over. Deadma lang, I let them tidy up things naman.
And speaking of DVD.. our player here in our room is busted.. Told you the daddy and the lil boy are addicts.. Hindi na kinya ng powers ng DVD player.. This morning ok pa, we were able to watch .. but around 6pm, The Play counter is working, but nothing on the screen, just a black screen i should say. I checked the jack connections( yes, I'm a partime repairwoman too) and its perfectly fitted. The daddy checked on it too, pero wala talaga. I checked our warranty card ( thanks to my sis who compiled everything.. OC talaga.. with matching photocopies of receipts, since the prints at the receipts fade away daw easily..) pero lapsed na pala. I might call Sony to check pa din, since this is quite new. Tsk.. I don't know if i will feel happy or sad. Sad for my little boy, pano na sya watch? This is the only player in our house that accepts his DVD's. The other one asks for a goddamn regional code, whaterver that is... but on the contrary, I'm a bit happy, coz the daddy will be away from his dvd's for a while.. not unless mapilitan sya na sa sala manood. Pero I have a feeling , he would settle sa sala, mas malaki TV dun, and a better sound na din, LOL. .. Let's see..
Lovely Hand painted wooden Bangles from Baubles, Bangles and Beads. The makers guested at Lucy's show at QTV ( wasn't able to see it though).. I'm not sure of the price, Php 500-600 yata each. It's a nice accesory if you are wearing plain tops.. Designs are quite limited. My dear friend from high school, Weng, sold some of her collection, still unused coz she has a lot na daw.. hahaha. I bought these 3 at a steal price.. Thanks Weng.. **hugs** Can't wait to use it :)

As Joaquin grows older, he soooo looks like me, HAHAHA! Honestly, I have the same smile when I was his age. Oh, everyday is a journey for us. We stay together every minute of the day. We play, we laugh, we watch DVD's , we sleep embracing each other realllyyyyy close ( yung tipong pagdilat ko mukha na nya nakikita ko, nostrils pa nga eh!).. and I just love each moment that I spend with him. Most of the times, he gets makulit , trying to get everything inside the room.. alarm clocks,DVD's all over, game cube controllers, the Game cube unit itself, DVD jacks, old keyboards that I gave to him as his new toy (para wag ako istorbohin while typing), keys, his basketball court..but i look at it positively. He will only be a baby once in his life, so i better cherish what I have now. I am in no rush at all for this phase pass, I am enjoying it to bits.
There are so many products nowadays in television and evenin print that claims to be good if not the best. But i guess it would be best if the claim woulcome from testimonials of the users, right? Hubby is not planning to do implants at all, and he is not even close to taking preventive maintenance meds, but still, I managed to check for some Hair Loss products over the net. It seems to me that provillus is one of the leading meds now in the market. It helps the scalp create new and healthy hair. It also supplies the proper nutrition required to bring damaged and dead hair follicles back to life. Proper nutrition is so much needed to maintain a healthy scalp and hair. Lack these nutrients makes our hair dull, thus resulting to hair loss.
While doing the search, I remember my dad, because he is a bit bald now. I might introduce this to him, there's no harm in trying anyway.. that is if he still wants his hair back. But for now, I will keep this info in mind, just in case I might use it in the future.

I got too occupied on how will I spend it, I went crazy in window shopping online, and I forgot that the first ones to have a "feel" of my earnings should be my own family of course! Oh yes, sila muna bago sarili ko.. LOL ! We are having an overnight stay at The Linden Suites on Saturday together with my MIL and SIL. Gelo's cousins my drop by there too at night for a drinking spree.. Coolness! What a way to spend my hard earned money from blogging.. It's best to share what we have, right?! Next time na lang for my "heart's own desires".. Patience is a virtue.. Good things come to those who wait (Hahaha! Yan ang mga motto ko nowadays) . Im waiting for the Thanksgiving sale at US actually :)
And for those of you who are wondering how much I earned, it's not that big as compared to other mommy bloggers. I'm a member of the Linden Suites club ( i forgot how it's called) and I have discount and upgrade vouchers that I'll use for the weekend. If you need discount vouchers, let me know, I have some left valid til July 2008 :)
I'll be selling these Authentic Ralph Lauren Polo Dress For kids. Size Avail is 2T - 4T.. Please leave me a message if you're interested.. Super cheap for my fellow mommies.. RL for Boys soon. This will be availbale next week maybe :) Thanks ...
