These are tiny Cars characters that I got from 168 last December. Its actually 5 pieces, i think Sheriff is missing here. He must be somewhere at the playroom or maybe under our new tv stand . Got this for 50 pesos i think ( its not more than 70) , for the complete set. It fits perfectly in his little hands. And since its cheap, dont ever expect a good quality , hahaha look what happened to Sally ..
I repaired her with some tape because I cant throw her away since Joaqui told me that Sally is his car. We have a blue car thats why he keeps on referring this as Joaqui 's Car. As of writing , its been 3 months and he still plays with these. Sulit na!
My mom got him a Fisher Price Shake 'n Go Cars ( Mc queen, Mater, Batman , NASCAR) when it was on Sale, i think each costs $5 , and when i saw it here in Manila, it retails at Php 999 .. Whaaat? Do the math. Im too tired to convert :)
1. Missionaries of Charity - This is close to my heart. Back in High school, there was a time that I regularly visit them and play with the kids. I always admired the Sisters of Charity, serving the poorest of the poor and they really have a simple life.
2. Hospicio de San Jose - never been here, but my mom visited them before.
I asked my Kumareng Abie for some suggestions since she already had parties for her daughter in both orphanage. She said that Hospicio maybe a better choice because the kids can really participate with the party games etc. Most kids that they had at MOC before are sick and in wheel chair . So if Im planning a party with some games, might as well do it at Hospicio. HOwever , I am considering MOC for some gift giving soon. I can always visit them since its just a walking distance from our house :)
I already called Hospicio and I finalized everything with them :) I feel excited. We asked for 50 kids for the party , I requested for April celebrants to join us too.
Before i finish this one, need to look for term insurance quote first. I will be back. I have a lot of updates to share.

Do you know that even when I go on vacation on hotels and resorts, I always check the bathrooms first. Im obsessed with bathroom suites and I always dream of having that elegant design in our house. Who knows, maybe soon, we will even have a his and hers basin and drawer , especially now that there's a lot of stores that offers great bargains for these furnitures without compromising the quality and style, its a sure steal. For now, all i can do is visit some online sites to get inspiration on designs, at the same time look for suppliers that will give me the best rates.
He loves to watch this every single day. We are done with CARS, thank goodness! Im happy that he's moving on with this one, I actually love the story or Cars and Ratatouille, its not just for kids, but for the kids at heart as well. I wonder what's next?!

We were about to pay the items that I got, but I saw a beautiful lampshade that's on sale. I thought of putting it at the guest room because it is a little bit bare until now. I find lamp shades very useful so its not just a decor at all. With all the shapes and colors available, i really had a hard time deciding on which one to buy. Yes, I am only allowed to buy one because we only need it for the guestroom . Finally, I got a white one in oblong shape, classic and elegance combined together.
And since I was on a shopping mode that time, I got interested with the log basket displayed at the floor. It holds a few logs , and placed besides a replica of a fireplace. But even if my in law's place doesn't have a fireplace, i got 2 baskets to be placed at the living room. I dont know what to place there yet, but it will surely have its purpose in the days to come.
You Were an Achieving Kid
When you were a kid, people often remarked on how mature you seemed. You acted quite adult.
You excelled at school, and you actually enjoyed it to a large extent. No one had to ask you to do your homework.
As a kid, you were probably a bit picky. You liked structure, schedules, and organization.
You had trouble being friends with regular kids. You probably were only friends with other serious children.

What? Zenni Optical in the New York Times?! Yes, Im not kidding, they made it big in the news because of their low cost frames. Imagine a wide collection of frames that are both trendy and functional. And did you know that they are still offering Prescription eyeglasses for only $8! My mom was able to get this very affordable offer and she really loves her eyeglasses now. She might order 2 more, she plans to leave the one here so whenever she will go home, she has something to use already. Zenni is truly a rewarding experience to eyeglass users, imagine Seeing Straight Without Breaking Bank. No wonder, they are making it on the news on TV and even on newspapers.

I have heard that one of the managers voluntarily resigned because he is opening up a small business as his investment. So you think why in the world would someone put a business in this tough times huh? Well, if you put dedication and focus on a business (plus your business should really tickle the market), then you are on the right track. Hiring a Marketing Company to create, conceptualize and promote your product will surely help increase your sales in the future. A branding company provides you with all the help needed to give your product that appeal. If in the future we will plan to put up a small business too, will definitely look for a competent and efficient branding company to assist us. Its no waste of money since it guarantees results. One should always be prepared during this time.
So if you are shopping, the site also offers FREE SHIPPING whenever you purchase $50 or more. Use code BABYMAT at checkout.

I already figured out somehow how will I go through the day. Before doing any house chores, my priority would be the kids of course. Those chores can wait. I have an infant and a toddler who needs me more. I hope that our first day wont be a tough one, i pray that the kids won't be a handful. If we will continue to be on our own for like a month, maybe I wont be needing the best weight loss pill anymore. I will surely slim down with house work.
Gotta go now! Have a great Monday everyone!

He loves playing with this car track/ repair center given to him by his dad last Christmas. The screw driver is his favorite tool, he usually tightens the screws and bearings at this track. Even at his playschool, I would see him playing with all these construction tools. Maybe I should get him a complete set soon so he can explore and discover how it works. I know that this kind of toy stimulates a child's imagination and thinking so this would really be a great help for his development now that he is turning 3.
