Recently, a dear friend of mine opened up a clothing store and she has been developing some marketing strategies for her group. They have come up with promotions such a leaflets and flyers but they would still need do more for their brand. So I suggested to her a Marketing Company that could personally design a program for them. One part of their program is Website Design. I told my friend how important it is to have a good website when you are into sales. Internet provides easy access to your items and enables you to communicate to your customers easily. Aside from that, they have Brand Rollout, Print Ad Design, Logo Design and Marketing Communications Campaign. My friend will give them a call this week, and I do hope everything turns out well.
As I have mentioned before, Debix is tied up with Loud Siren in their fight against Identity Theft. Identity theft is described as a serious crime that occurs when your personal information is stolen and used without your knowledge to commit fraud and other crimes. This has been all over the news lately, and at Debix.com, you will see their statistics regarding this matter. Identity Theft is mostly prevalent at the internet, with the state of the art technology that we have now, everything is just possible to hack. This would also touch on the topic of online shopping, since we provide personal information to the websites such as our name, address, telephone number and our credit card information. It is always best to be protected, thus I am getting myself an Anti - Fraud program for my accounts. It is not too late to have one too. With Debix promo code, you can save a lot , so better sign up with them too.

Gelo got lazy today too.. the workaholic daddy was here at 12noon! He usually arrives at 7pm everyday.. I was so surprised since he didn't call me on his way home, no text message too.. I just heard our car locking sound so I immediately opened our window from the room, and I saw him walking towards the gate.. "Bakit nandito ka?" Hahaha.. And he simply replied, " Tinatamad ako eh."

Eversince the birth of Super Inggo, I knew this kid would make it big. I don't even know his full name, I only remember him as Pareng Jomar , but now the face has a name.. Meet Jairus Aquino, my latest crush!! LOL! I love his eyes and cheeks.. and wait til he acts, funny and spontaneous! Tonight , I watched the premiere of Kung Fu kids , hehehe , i might get hooked with it because of him :) This picture of him reminds me of Onemig Bondoc, right? My mom will surely watch him at TFC every night. Yeah, I'm a fan of this little boy hehehe.
Something extra : As I was giving Joaqui a quick wash up before bedtime, I was showing him some karate / martial arts moves from what I've seen from the show ( the usual hand movements with matching sound effects ) , little boy was staring.. and then as I had my pose, I said " Ninja Kids!" .. i stared blank after... Shocks! "Kung Fu kids " pala.. Hahaha.. Now you know, i live in the 80's, coz i believe there's a ninja kids movie starring JC bonin etc.. tama ba?! LOL

|You Are 72% Vain|
You're a little vain, but you also work hard for your good looks.
Just remember, everyone knows you are a total hottie. You don't have to remind them.
Snagged this from Erika.
Is this true? I am not that vain.. so i guess 72% is okay:)
Fell free to grab if you need fillers!
I am so lazy nowadays with opps and with anything, LOL. I badly need a kick to keep me moving. I know I should be thankful that I still have opps :) And to make you believe that I am lazy, I wasn't updated with online shopping too. The bag that I am eyeing at Dillard's was sold for $99!! Goodness, I'm too late, when i clicked it, out of stock already!! Ggrrr!!! Imagine how sad i was when I saw that its unavailable already. I wanted it really!! Huhuhu.. i dont think it's avail at the stores too.. (*insert sad face here).. maybe it's not for me..
On the lighter side , mommy showed me her latest grab .. A Steve Madden ballet flats for me.. in black and white patchwork. Thanks mom! You know, a pair of shoes can really brighten my day ** wink wink**
Thursday, January 24, 2008
To Jenny, Jacqui and Jane, Thank you so much for these awards.. :) Thanks for the friendship too:)
I am passing this to Abie and Toni ( my fellow little gym mommies), Kathy ( my online kumare), MM ( for being my buddy on online shopping finds) , and to Erika ( my dear friend, My Kumare with Sierra, Joaqui's ninang and everyday ka chat, day ang night! miss you!)
Wednesday, January 23, 2008
** Didn't bought these.. Thanks to Joaqui's ever generous Ninang Dollar aka Ricca , the true blue shopaholic , for the Cars shoes (na sinuot agad ng anak ko pagkakita pa lang), And the RL Polo shirt below. Yes Ricca, I believe you, RL is such a classic brand, so buy more!! as in a lot ha?! hahaha**
** I saw this at Target and shared the links to my mom, I told you i stopped from shopping, so I asked my mom to buy it for his unico. The next day , mommy showed it to me thru webcam. He got all the Attitude Tees designs at Target.. Woohoo! Addict yata family namin? **

At the last quarter of the year, we might have another trip with my in laws, and I'm so excited for that. As early as now, I'm looking for great hotels at our destination, the key here is to research before travelling. We might book our flight and accomodations from one site, and that would really save us a lot. travelling in group could really be expensive, but once you know where to book, you are definite that youare getting the best deals. I am also checking out some Resorts , because our trip won't be complete without dipping into the pool or beach. And another preference of mine would be the breakfast should be included. That would save us some pennies too, than eating outside the hotel. Oh, I just can't get enough of travelling recently. CAn you share your travel sotries and plans for this year?

Yeah! The shoes!!! LOL
He put on his shoes all by himself, and my sister just saw him walking around the room wearing it. We all laughed after seeing him, feel na feel pa maglakad ha! He really loves that specific Crocs of him, I don't know why. It's a bit "sakto" so I don't let him wear that one often. But , boy oh boy, He knows where all of his shoes are placed, so he would go there, and grab this one. Just tonight, I removed this when i need to wash him and change his nappy. Gelo and I still had to explain to him why we need to remove his Crocs ( yes, he can say the brand clearly and can even recognize the logo anywhere!) . He was crying while saying "shoes, shoes" while I'm putting on his nappy! Hahaha! So after putting on his PJ's he wore the shoes. We went to our room and a few minutes after , we have to remove the shoes again coz he needs to be in bed for milk. But as soon as he's done with his milk, he went off the bed and put on the shoes all by himself. I think he likes shoes noh?! I know... I know... I wont say anything.. I know what you' re thinking.. hehe

That pic of Gelo and Joaqui at Panglao is one of my faves. I just clicked and clicked! Luckily I have a good shot. How I wish Joaqui was looking up talaga :) I only have a few boys embellishments, so if u have some, I'd be glad to have a copy :) I find doing LO's for my boys a little tough too, color and design limitations, you know:)

|You Are A Total Shopaholic!|
You have a keen eye for spotting trends before they are hot
And sometimes your credit rating takes a beating as a result
Consider a job in retail to subsidize your gorgeous outfits
Over time, you could become a famous stylist or designer!
I strongly disagree!!!!!!

Being with your child the whole time is tiring (and exhausting), that explains my weight loss I guess. Sometimes, I wanted to have even just 5 minutes of "ME" time. Like 5 minutes of silence just to bring back my sanity? I am not complaning though, I have come to embrace that everything is a part of motherhood.
Today, I had a hard time with Joaqui that I almost shouted and I felt like I'm gonna explode any minute. A part of me feels sad for that. I feel bad about myself. Oh well, I guess we all have our bad times , mine is today. My super powers of being "The Octopus Mommy" didn't worked today. *sigh*
The little boy is asleep now. I promise I'll make it up to him as soon as he's up.

Is this true? I'm turning 29 this May :)
|You Act Like You Are 25 Years Old|
You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel like an adult, and you're optimistic about life.
You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.
You're still figuring out your place in the world and how you want your life to shape up.
The world is full of possibilities, and you can't wait to explore many of them.
I am writing down our budget for next week, and it's pretty good that we are on the right track. But what if I ran short of cash? I won't worry about that though, why? Because I recently saw this website that offers cash advance loan. It is so easy to apply and everything is done online, I can fill up the application form, wait for the approval and once everything is okay the money will be wired to my bank account over night. Then my loan amount and interest will be deducted from my checking account on the next payday. This is also the same with payday loans. It's that easy and everything is hassle free, fast and secure. So why should we worry about money right?
Let me share this to the ff:
1. Ricca for posting her everyday life that I miss, and for buying endlessly for Joaqui , heheh thank you.
2. Abie for being my newest treasured friend not just in blogging but in real life
3. Erika - I miss you already , come back na hehehe. Your blog is my updates of your life there :)
1. A goal you would like to achieve this year?- Purchase a house and lot! LOL
2. A smell that reminds you of your childhood? - Angel's Breath? Hahaha!
3. Favorite cereal? Koko Krunch
4. Who was the last person you yelled at? Joaqui?!
5. What do you see outside your window? our street and the bakery in front of our house
6. What country would most like to visit? Any part of Europe will do.
7. What do you prefer… books or movies? I'm a geek. I love books
8. Do you have a tatoo? none. But i wanted one during college
9. What’s the worst advice you were ever given? - Cant think of any now.
10. Have you ever been searched at the airport?- Yes, I think this is normal now for security reasons.
So if ever you will run out of cash to cover your expenses and bills, give this a try and you will be eased with your financial problems. Everything is fast, secure and can be done online.

Can you believe that? My real name in her collection?!?! Yes, my non showbiz name is Maria Paz.. (Feeling Showbiz!!!!!).. Just wanted to share this site to you guys. Her collection is on the simple side, but considering the price.. ok na ok! The only problem is, no online store.. huhuhu.. and they don't even have a store near my family's place.. Grrr! Tinakam lang ako ng site!
Wish I can grab one, or two items.Items are priced at $19.98 and less. As Sarah Jessica says, "Fashion is not a luxury, it's a right."
To my friends at US.. please leave me a message if you've seen her items. Just leave me a message.. *wink* wink*

We are so late to have these pictures. LOL! But as they say, better late than never. Buti umabot pa diba?!
We were supposed to check out Trinoma, but since we are too afraid to get lost for lacking some road directional skills, so I suggested checking out Rockwell. Why? Coz I know they have sale on Zara! Bwahahaha! I scored 2 shirts for the little boy (345 each..weeee!), and the leggings that I want is not on sale. So I'll buy next time, ayaw ko na pumila for the fitting rooms.
We met Erika's hubby and gave him Sierra's items. Too bad my inaanak was in deep sleep at the carpark, hence no pic with joaqui. It was a quick chat that we had. We also had Ice blended coffee at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Thanks to my Belle De Jour Planner coupon, Buy 1, Take 1 Free!! Also had Ham and cheese crepe at Press ( the snack bar besides Fully Booked).. That's not all, we had dinner at Burgoo hihihi!.. Takaw!

Day 1 : Fun with Markers
** Gave him 2 sheets of Bond paper and asked him to choose a washable marker. He got the blue one at first. I let him say the name of the color too, for familiarization purposes. Hehehe :) Just let him doodle and sometimes I would hold his hand and we draw his favorite shapes/things together like stars, ball, fish etc.. Second color he had was yellow, his choice too. He is not into colors yet, so it helps this way, he keeps on saying yellow na.. so al i have to do is familiarize him more. One color at a time as they always say.
Day 2 : Fun with Crayons
** We have some 2008 calendars from Fortune Tobacco , which unfortunatley can't be posted in our house. So I recycled it na lang, used the back side for drawing!!! LOL! Posted it on our wall, and we used crayons this time. I always have a wet hand towel during arts time, hehehe. We used the crayola My First Crayons that I bought from last year pa. He had so much fun again!! keeps on shouting Draw! draw! Draw! while jumping. oh his simple joys. He loves red for today! Nyehehe!
Nothing formal for now.. just for exposure incorporated with fun and playtime.. I also tell him that he can only draw on papers and draw boards.. i show him the walls and floor that 's obviously out of his art territory! LOL!
He sure had fun! Next week, we'll be having cut outs of shapes !!
Thanks to MM and Chat :) This means a lot to me:)
Im sharing this to felllow shopping mommas!!! Aggie, Abie, Kathy, Jacq and Joy. Promise, I don't serve as a bad influence on you.. Im actually helping you out how to spend your money on great shopping buys!! ( waaah! palusot na naman!)

Tonight, he saw his other pair of shoes I got from Shoebuy, and since it's not a slip on type ( the ones with velcro closures), he gave it to me and asked me to help him out with it. He Is actually doing his best to wear it on his own, but he is really having a hard time inserting his left foot while standing. The ever supportive mommy showed the little boy how to wear shoes. So now, he is still walking around with his shoes on, and it's currently 11:25pm. Addict!
Saturday, January 05, 2008
Okay.. OKay.. I can see you guys with that doubtful smiles on your face! Bwaahahha! Help me!!! It's all over me! Shoot! Ricca and I are truly sisters. I am trying to stop myself, believe me.. but with all the 50%off and more items flashing on my screen, who can resist that? It's like they are telling me, " Common, buy me.. i'm a steal! ".. LOL!
Actually, I can shop coz I have a few money left in my paypal and in my debit card.. BUT! yes, there is a BUT!.. we have plans for march, and I AM paying for that.. solely MOI ! And this paid blogging thing is my only source of money.. poor me! If I won't stop this addiction... pupulutin talaga kmi sa bangketa on our next trip! Waaahh!
So yes, I am stopping ( sounds like I'm convincing myself to stop) this craziness, but only for a mean time. I'll be back with vengeance.. Promise!

But nevertheless, it's one memorable night of eating and bonding time with my cousins.
We had fun during the last part of 2007. reunions and non stop eating for us. I need to check my weight.
Dec 29 - We had dinner at Hula Hula in Westgate Alabang with my Balikbayan tito and his family. My cousins from Paranaque were there too. I swear, I had too much.. yummy and affordable at Hula Hula.. sayang lang too far from Manila. We then had dessert at Cafe Breton. That's my ever fave place for sumptuous crepes! Oh how I miss La Pinay! Went home at 1 am :)
Dec 30 - Family Reunion at our house! It was also my cousin's birthday. My cousins were drinking from 2 or 3 pm yata til night! No one got really drunk! Hahaha. Non stop videoke too! Of course, Im the queen:) We had a webcam with voice chat session with Ricca. I think she had vodka that time. Sya yata nalasing:) We dropped off our cousins at Bluewave Macapagal at 12 mn, and stopped by Starbucks for coffee.
Dec 31 - Talk about last minute shopping. we hit Rob PLace Manila to buy a 4GB Memory stick for our PSP. We were supposed to buy squids from the grocery, but it was paked with peeps. So we decided to buy at SM San Lazaro. Haay, ubos ang squid!!! We ended with boneless bangus though.
I prepared our Media Noche when we arrived around 5:30 pm. I prepared 2 sauces for my pasta, Seafood and meatball sauce.. Yeeha! We had dinner a bit early and we even got dressed to welcome the New Year. Gelo and I were in fashionable polka dot tops LOL! My first time to wear one for New year, lets see if Ill get rich this year HAHAHA! And yes, it needs to have the word fashionable:)
We , for the nth time, had a chat with my family (thanks to YM!) .. they were actually preparing for work. so it wasn't that long enough. And besides, I need to lock up Joaquin in our room at 11:30. I almost forgot to stuff our boneless bangus with tomatoes and onions, so before 12, I was actually dealing with 5 big bonelss bangus:) Baka mag amoy isda ako the whole year??? LOL! JOaqui was wide awake till 1 am ! Todo na sa puyatan!
Jan 1 - The Annual family reunion of the Austero's (Gelo's maternal side) . We woke up a bit late and we arrived at Antipolo around 12:30, just in time for lunch. We first dropped by Papa's crypt on our way to the house. The boneless bangus was a hit! We had it grilled and super like ng mga manginginom! Hahaha! Videoke couldn't be missed too :) It was bitin actually.. I have some songs on the playlist but we need to go home since it's getting late.
I had tons of pics to share:) But for now, I have opps to finish too. I had a break from blogging, and now I'm back to my online world.
Have a Blessed New Year everyone!
