We'll Both Be Flying Out Today!!!!

YES that's right! Hubby was told yesterday to be ready for today. I was in teary eyes thanking God for all the possible ways He's been showing off in due time, that His intention and motive is for our safety too..... THANKS FOR ALL YOUR PRAYERS MY FRIENDS, I KNOW HOW POWERFUL PRAYER IS, and I thank you all for that...

Our company's Angolan administration managed to get hold of other company the possibility of giving us 2 seats for their flight today (Friday) - this is in another town (since the town we are in now is not allowing any public flights anymore except Sundays but only under circumstances)... But its only an hour drive from here and another hour and half flight, so not bad though.

Everything has already been organized - the hospital, the doctor, all the corresponding paper works - so I will be heading straight to th
e hospital as soon as we get to Luanda! Hubby will be back here on Monday until the 10th, while I will be at the hospital until he gets back there and fly home together! I can't really wait.... I KNOW GOD IS IN CONTROL...

I won't be able to contact you until we get to UK, and its gonna be in 2 to 3 weeks time!

I'm only going to take the stuffs I needed for my 10 day stay at the hospital, the rest hubby will pack everything! Poor


Yes you are right my friends - when I start feeling so stressed and if I walk too much (feel tired), my baby doesn't like it because he/she gives me tummy cramps and pains right away - to remind me that "MOMMY PLEASE YOU NEED TO CALM DOWN, RELAX, I'LL BE FINE, I WILL BE SEEING YOU SOON", I may sound crazy but I know he/she'll be fine and knows what's going on...

.....and you know where I got this positive feelings? FROM YOU MY DEAR SISTERS/FRIENDS, YOU MAKE ME STRONG THROUGH ALL YOUR COMMENTS, REMINDERS, PRAYERS, CARE AND LOVE... Can't wait to speak to you again, and it will be soon! GOD BLESSES YOU MORE and MORE and MORE, take care and love yah all....

I Wish I Could Finally Say "Don't Worry, We Are Safe"

I didn't know I was given by our Angolan doctor a 7-day sick leave (from the 25th), until only yesterday to have found it out when I decided to see my boss at work! I went to see him yesterday morning for two reasons: to get some of my personal stuffs and to tell him that he must start making a plan for me to hand over my work loads! But even before I went to knock his door, he saw me and said "Oh come to my office I need to speak to you", about your health condition...and even before I said a word, he said "I know what's going on, I want you rest until you go on leave and please start handling over, all I want you to do is to come here whenever you like - monitor and check his job and if you need to lie down - go home and rest"... 'I REALLY CRIED SAYING 'THANK YOU SO MUCH I TRULY NEEDED IT'.....

...and on my way to see hubby to tell him what my boss had to say - our Angolan doctor saw me and handed over two pieces of paper - MY MEDICAL REPORTS to be given to my boss. Then he started telling me about their plans (among company's local directors)....that I have to get ready for this coming Sunday - to fly (hopefully they could arrange a flight) to Luanda (Angola capital) for a thorough examinations for both - MY BABY AND THE MALARIA! That he already phoned his OB-Gyne friend at Sagrada Hospital to be available starting Monday... So, their plan is - I will be confined at the hospital for a week until to see my hubby the following Sunday then we'll fly home to UK by the 11th.... I was so happy with teary eyes thanking for their care!! Our Angolan doctor is somehow worried about my case due to the fact that I AM PREGNANT WHILE HAVING A HIGH MALARIA COUNT!, that they couldn't do more...

I know what you're going to ask me - WHY TO WAIT UNTIL SUNDAY Madz? WHY NOT ASAP? Because we don't want to gamble the safety of our baby to travel a 12-HOUR TRIP from mine site to Luanda, which hopefully and that God will allow for the time being - for a possible special flight this coming Sunday, which is not possible during weekdays...

Since we DON'T GET FLIGHTS ANYMORE, everybody travels backwards and forwards by road trips, and even our foods are also now being transported by land. We used to get 4 flights per week 5 months ago, but due to security reason, the government and our company agreed to cancel all the public flights, except for Diamond Exports and any private flights!

I now started getting rid of our old stuffs (with our local cleaning ladies), since we are not certain yet if hubby is still gonna come back due to recession, and our company will due to inform us the real score during the week! Besides, we both have an ULTIMO VISAS - meaning LAST ISSUE OF WORKING PERMIT - not unless if the company still needs him (never mind about me), that they are going to process his visa again! We never know what's gonna happen....But for the meantime, we are not worried about it - all we want is for me to get out of here!

I would like to take this opportunity to say - I JUST CAN'T THANK YOU ALL ENOUGH FOR ALL UNDYING SUPPORT, ALL YOUR CARE, LOVE, FRIENDSHIP, REMINDERS... I appreciate all so much! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I am lucky to have guys as my friends....Will keep you posted before Sunday.. Love yah all!!

Was Full of Disappointments Yesterday!!!

I was quite happy when last Saturday one of our Angolan cleaning ladies realized that I was pregnant, she came and spoken to me. I said to her, I need medicines to secure my baby! She said why don't you ask our Angolan doctor to go with you to a Korean OB-Gyne in their local town. I was totally stunned and with full of happiness, that despite of my situation, there's still a way to safeguard my baby. I thanked God and did see my hubby straight away if we could both arranged if visiting this Korean lady in Cafunfo town.

Which we duly did yesterday, and we managed to get authorization to get out of the camp and headed straight to their local hospital to see our Angola doctor first! He then made a corresponding request to see her ASAP! His Angolan nurse came back said, "SHE WAS BUSY" and she was attending something very important!!!.. He then phoned her, and I was disappointed even more especially when we learned that she won't be available until further advise... huhuhuhu...

We then directed to another doctor - another useless one! I was so frustrated - that why on earth he had to bring me to another doctor who has no idea about pregnancy whatsoever!! He happened to be the HOSPITAL DIRECTOR, then what are we doing here? (first thing came to my mind)... hubby said to hang on... He asked me some questions, for file purposes while our Angolan nurse was preparing the bed!!! Then this director stood up, went outside to get a pair of GLOVES??? Because he wanted to check how my ovary was or uterus whatever that was!!! The moment I saw it, I SAID NO NO NO NO NO! Nobody can touch me..... I said to hubby please honey stop him, I don't need this!


Then hubby explained that we don't came here for him to check, for any laboratory nor physical check ups - ALL WE NEEDED IS A PROPER OB-GYNE to give me a prescription for me to take for my BABY SECURITY and PRENATAL VITAMINS! I really cried..... The same doctor then wrote another in a piece of paper for a laboratory examinations to be made - MY BLOOD and URINE? They wanted to make sure if I don't have any infections, I said fine but where is the laboratory? We drove down to see another clinic and what shocked me as soon as we got in.......

OUR TOILET IS MUCH BETTER AND MUCH CLEANER THAN THEIR LABORATORY!!! I nearly walked out and wanted to scream.... huhuhuhu...thanks God hubby was there to give me moral support, that he had to keep on telling me that WE ARE IN ANGOLA, THERE'S NO WAY WE CAN DO MORE.... huhuhuhuhu... He took some blood, tested for some reason but he said I WAS NEGATIVE OF ANY INFECTION! I didn't trust it, nor believed that I needed these,,,,,,,, I was even more stressful!!!!

It was passed 12 noon already, he advised us to see our doctor again but WE DID NOT!! We decided to come back to the camp straight away. Hopefully sometime this week, we could be able to get hold of this KOREAN OB-GYNE, otherwise, will insist to be taken down to LUANDA or TO LOOSE OUR BABY AGAIN... Please I need your prayers....

I Was Extremely Bad That I Had To Have A Malaria Test!!.

I was MALARIA POSITIVE! huhuhu... Now what's next? It was yesterday afternoon (Sunday) that I was suffering from extremely horrendous headache, that I could almost had thrown it to the wall!! I HAD NO CHOICE... I HAD TO CALL OUT OUR COMPANY NURSE (a Filipina)... Hubby went out to see her straight away, and after 5 minutes she arrived with a thermometer. I HAD NO FEVER...

Malaria attacks in so many ways, depending on how your body reacts in every attack! This time was my HEAD, no fever, but with joints' pains as well (which is quite common to every attack!!)...I remember when one of our Filipino friends died from Cerebral Malaria (this happens when not treating first signs quickly and take medicines accordingly), first sign of having a severe one - HEADACHE! By this thought alone made me so worried and so stressed with teary eyes...

When the Nurse left to get the test, along the way, she thought of bringing me to the clinic instead to go for a thorough check ups with our Doctor. Hubby drove me down there... I had my another PREGNANCY TEST again to confirm, BLOOD PRESSURE was normal, and PALCIFARUM test (this is to determine if I've had the severe one), thanks God it was negative! Lastly, was the MALARIA COUNTS test...

Off the record, I'VE HAD more than 10 counts of Malaria - meaning it was close to PALCIFARUM - meaning close to death if I hadn't had a severe headache! They had to give me medicines...

BUT WHAT ABOUT MY BABY? I was crying....hubby was crying too...

Thanks God that we still had a mild one suitable for PREGNANT WOMEN! It is called "ARINATE"... They convinced me that my baby will be safe, despite of my counts which meant to be given higher dose than above! This is the only way they can save both of us - MY BABY AND ME... I took two as soon as we got back to our house plus one Paracetamol, after 10 minutes all the pains were gone - I WAS SO RELIEVED THEN...

Now it's Monday, I didn't manage to go to work... they didn't sign my resignation while they gave a kind consideration of giving me "on and off" work loads until we go on vacation in two weeks time which was fine for us - an easy option while I can come and lie down if I feel bad anytime! A big favor that we are both very grateful for...

I am still having my medications (a 3 day course), let see what happens after this. But fingers' crossed nothing will ever happen to our baby...

I Was Suffering From Extremely Agonizing Headache

I decided to have worked for only half day last Friday, as headache I had was almost unbearable! It was mainly because of late working hours during the past whole week, though I was working slowly, but I was convinced based on my past Malaria experiences, THAT I'VE HAD and was so sad to might have been attacked again, I was quite worried though...

Had spoken with hubby, advised me to go straight to our camp clinic to confirm what was causing my pains, but I strongly disagreed that I didn't bother to go. I thought would just have been due to pregnancy plus have been working so late.... Friday has gone through without visiting our doctor, for the reason being - I DIDN'T WANT TO TAKE ANY MALARIA MEDICINE otherwise WILL LOOSE MY BABY AGAIN, I was so emotional and had to cry and cry and cry.

Here came Saturday, I was even more in pain and it was on and off! The thought of TAKING MEDICINES stopped me from seeing our resident doctor. Everyone thought that I had malaria though...

I said to hubby I'd rather suffer than to loose our baby again...So I didn't take any medicine at all even pain killers.....

Customer Complaints To Various Companies Worldwide

Got an email from Dad this morning informing us regarding the list of companies which have loads of complaints from its customers, and obviously, affect them a lot!.. It is well worth looking at:

CEO E-Mail Addresses
Hint: If you have arrived here via a search engine, use the Find function (CTRL F) in your browser to locate the information on this page
So, you're fed up dealing with "Customer Services" on general-purpose contact e-mail addresses. Are you not getting replies, or not getting the replies you want? Time to take it to the top! Chief Executive Officers (CEO's) are very reluctant to publish their e-mail addresses. This page attempts to redress the balance by publishing the e-mail addresses for the CEO's of some UK companies, government and other organizations.

Some tips when e-mailing:
  • Be polite
  • Keep the information concise and to the point
  • Include customer reference numbers or invoice numbers, if applicable
  • Include a brief history of the issue, if applicable
  • Do not accept being passed back to "Customer Services" or elsewhere within the organization
  • Insist on a reply from the CEO
If you're working as part of a campaign group, send a personal, individually-created letter. Letters which are cut/pasted from a standard template will invariably receive a standard template response in reply... Good luck with your inquiry!

Therefore, we sometimes convince ourselves to buy some in no time! Some may interested in some collectibles, home accessories, clothes and shoes, etc... Some of us might persuaded to acquire some assets like houses, cars, or motorbikes which are not just as simply as buying, paying afterwards and that's it, you're done - thank you very much! You need insurance to secure them right?

In-Game Money For Online Computer Games

One of the most interesting and unexpected things to arise from online gaming is the birth of real-world economies based on the value of persistent world game characters and items. Game assets such as characters, currencies and items are increasingly being traded for real money. Game operators have reacted in various ways: some attempt to curtail the trade, while others encourage it. A growing number are getting involved in the trade themselves.

Nevertheless, trade in these digital goods continues to grow, and it has already gone from being a pastime pursued only by a handful of hard-core gamers to being a fledgling industry in its own right. Buy Warhammer Online Gold to play this all time favorite, most popular game and currency which is known as World of Warcraft which uses mainly gold as its currency.

MyMMOShop is a e-commerce website that sells virtual currency or in-game money for online computer games, known as MMO (Massively multiplayer online) games or massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). They offer an amazing service, excellent prices, and an incredibly easy delivery system.

Digital Cameras To Capture The Moments

Photography is one of our passions by using our personal digital cameras. We don't have to be a professional photographer to be able capture every moments of our lives. I love my digital camera too, which is one of the essentials wherever I go. In this modern technology we have right now, we seldom see people who uses polaroid ones, and what makes digital cameras more handy to us? First, we can be able to see the photos right after we hear the click, we can delete, re-do all over again if we may don't like it, and it doesn't take such a long time to share with friends and families.

In fact, I really wanted to buy my dad this Canon EOS Rebel Digital XTi 400D 10.1 Megapixel Digital Camera W/ 18-55mm Lens---Black, which is not so expensive though. He loves his photography profession back home. Have been looking for this somewhere else but quite expensive though, thanks to have seen this website. I would make him a very happy dad on his coming birthday.

Moreover, giving 'digital cameras' as presents is becoming popular nowadays! It doesn't have to be expensive to be able to buy one for your best friend or for your family, we can see loads of online stores selling varieties of any digital cameras or any photography essentials and accessories.
One of them is 42nd Street Photo which specializes in photography, a camera store which also known for over 40 years which offers all the latest on photography, latest digital cameras and accessories.

They also give us an idea which ones are the best through their "best selling" section, and also some close out items at your choice at a very affordable prices. To own something you love to be doing is a great pleasure.

What do You Love About Your Husband

I wished my husband is a blogger too, so he could read every bits I write here, but what I do instead is ask him to open it if there's something I wanted him to read especially those comments from my friends. Flattering comments as he may called them, he's been so happy for me to have found more friends in blogging, not just earning knowledge and money, but most of all a treasure which couldn't be taken away from me or from us - the pleasure of having loads of friends.

Anyway, we don't talk about friends here, do we? lol.. This is to be dedicated solely for husbands... I don't know where to start really.. Dhangz Umma had given me this interesting tag, hubby's are lucky huh! Wished there could be a husband blogger too to start spreading a tag for wives, but then who's going to write for me the fact that hubby is not a blogger! Anyway, uummm give me another 24 hours to compile everything hahahahaha.. not that much!

Okay, here we go:

I always love him the way he makes me laugh all the time! Look at his photo above, its a typical him who always makes faces (only in front of me).. hahaha... HE DOES WHAT HE CAN DO TO MAKE ME LAUGH. Even if I am extremely angry whether at him or at somebody else, his silly-funny faces always make me laugh!

I have known my husband for a total of almost 7 years now and been married for only a year and 2 months. His undying love from the very beginning makes me love him even more! I do appreciate everything you've been doing for me my luv!


I love his style or motive in decision making, that he has to wait and consult to me first before making any move at all! That we have to agree things first before taking the first and final steps.

I love the way he confides in me all his plans for our future kids, our future as a couple, our future house, our future business, our future professional kids, where they have to go to school and finish their degrees (which will be in UK)...


I love him for his reasons of buying our flat in the UK (temporary for th
e moment), that he wanted to have one close to primary school, church, local village's supermarket, close to the post office, Chinese and Indian take-aways, high school, public park - which they are all walking distances. For the reason being, to be more convenient for me while he is working abroad....


I love the way he handles things - that he always comes up with the right thing to say and to do especially in dealing with my moods - when I'm confused, angry or hurt. He knows exactly what to say to ease my feelings....


I love the way he thinks and provide everything even before I say it. He knows how to interpret my facial expressions. Plus every time we go on vacation (off from work), he always thinks of going to a place where I wanted to visit....


I love his being forgetful - he tend to forgets loads of things when it comes to himself but never he forgets anything for me.. hahahaha, that favors me really! hehehe joke luv!


I love his devotion to our marriage, to all our plans for the future and I love not only him, also his whole family - for having been welcomed heartily and warmly in their family!


Last, but not the least, I love his reasons of giving me that WONDERFUL BEACH WEDDING IN MAURITIUS - because HE WANTED TO TELL THE WORLD HOW HE LOVED ME SO MUCH, even if it would meant for him to have spent an equivalent of a BMW car, he didn't mind it. I felt so loved, and felt the luckiest woman in the world! I never realized to have had a wedding as wonderful as we had, which was more than a dream, a fairytale to be proud of until the end of time! Plus the chance he had given to my both parents to travel outside the Philippines, a very romantic holiday at the same time. Thank you so much honey...

I think everyone has this tag already in their blogs, sistah Umma has most of the names I wanted to share this with. Never mind, I will encourage everyone to grab this and share with us HOW LUCKY YOU ARE TO HAVE YOUR HUSBAND!!

Oh I love this tag Dhangz... Thank you kindly.... Whew, I changed my mind, I will pass this on to (excluding those ones been tagged by sistah Umma) Nanay Belen, Beth, Grace Draper, Benrechie, Rechie, Recel, te Lanie, te Ces, te Mira, Lingz, Weng, Chelle, Filipina, Ria, Lynn, Faye, Mom Gen, Mom Joy, Iyrel, Poray, Belle, Maria, Mommy Elvz, Mommy Liz, Mharms, etc...

Pink HEART Tag - Listen To What My Heart Says

Got this tag from one of my wonderful friends here in blogosphere - sistah Rose of Rose's Obstacles and Glories. I like the thoughts behind this tag my dear. Well, the fact that I love meditating, analyzing and appreciating things around us. Let us pause for a while and think of what God has to say to us!

Please spend time to scroll down and take time to read every line, and ask God what does He want to tell you.

The 10 Commandments are not a multiple choice.

Your mind is like a functions only when open..
One thing you can give and still your word.
You lie the loudest when you lie to yourself you lack the courage to start, you have already finished. One thing you can't recycle is wasted time. Ideas won't work unless ' You' do.
The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.

The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge.

Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.'A sharp tongue can cut your own throat.

If you want your dreams to come true, you mustn't oversleep.

Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most importan.

The best vitamin for making friends..... B1.

The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime! It is never too late to become what you might have been.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the one's who don't. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If if changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

Friends are like balloons, once you let them go, you might not get them back. Sometimes we get so busy with our own lives and problems, that we may not even notice that we've let them fly away. Sometimes we are so caught up in who's right and who's wrong that we for get what's right or wrong. Sometimes we just don't realize what real friendship means until it is too late. I don't want to let that happen so I'm gonna tie you to my heart so I never lose you.


Let me pass this on to the following, whom I have found the real meaning of FRIENDSHIP, LOVE AND CARE.... Back to sister Rose, Dhemz, Umma, Lynn, Chelle, Faye, Belle, Amy, Hazel, Dona, Lizzie, Kat, te Cecile, Elizabeth, te Lanie, Niko, Iyrel, Rechie, Grace Draper, Benrechie, Grace Ilagan, Recel, Maria, Mommy Elvz, Mommy Liz, te Mira, te Juliet, Lauren, Mharms, Filipina, , Lingz, Rye, Nanay Belen, Shiela, Ruby, Juliana,

Need Phone Cards and Calling Cards?

Calling Cards is one of the fundamentals people wouldn't survive without! We can't live a day without getting in touch with our love ones, whether we live just drives or hours away or living miles away, we always try to get hold of them. Here at work we always buy spare ones in case we needed to call emergency aside from the company satellite phone we are using.

While overseas calling has become a part of everyday business activities. Many people travel to different countries for several months a year. The world has become a global village and people are searching for cost-effective ways to call their overseas pals. Phone Cards
use the latest technology allowing us to make international calls at cheap rates.

Prepaid Phone Card can be used even if we don't have telephone service at home. The call rates are much lower compared to the normal cards. We can even use these cards wherever we go, we can always make many international countries with a few cents per minute, and we can make international as well as local cards with the same card.

Chinese Man Explodes While Being Cremated!!

This is very strange.... lightning was in fact killed by a small weather rocket whose existence was only discovered when his body exploded during his cremation...

Mr. Wang’s body explodes in the cremation chamber! A Chinese man, killed by a weather rocket, was thought to have died from getting struck by lightning until his body exploded at his own funeral. Wang Diange was attending a wake in his home when an explosion took off half of his roof and left him dead in the wreckage. Because it had been a stormy day, family members and the police assumed that lightning was what killed Wang and left half of his home in ruins.

However, as Wang was being placed into the cremation chamber at his own funeral, his body exploded, causing the chamber’s oven doors to fly off their hinges. Only then, spectators discovered a small piece of twisted metal, which led them to what really killed Mr. Wang:

A small weather rocket filled with silver iodide—shot into the sky in order to break up hail into rain—failed to explode in the atmosphere, and instead had fallen through Wang’s roof and acted like a bullet, instantly killing Wang as it was lodged into his body.

Three years later, the Weather Bureau has only given the Wang family 80,000 yuan (approx. $12,000USD) as a compensation for their loss.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has a big one.
Michael J. Fox has a small one.
Madonna doesn't have one.
Clinton uses his all the time.
Bush is one.
Mickey Mouse has an unusual one.
Liberace never use his on women.
Jerry Seinfeld, is very very proud of his.
Cher claims that she took on 3.
We never see Lucy use Desi's.

What is it then? Answer below (this is pretty good)

The answer is: 'A LAST NAME'.
You didn't think I'd post this one, did you? hahaha

Sometimes we just need to pause for a while, to realize what we were been missing in life! You could sit back and relax, meditate God's words, read some articles, read some blogs, stop writing, read bulk of emails or start cleaning your spams. Surely, there are quite a lot of things we find relaxing, anything that soothe our senses to be able to regain energy.

I find it very comforting too when I can be able to read anything that makes me laugh. I got this one from my friend, I thought it was worth sharing this to you.

Birthday Wish Award

Sistah Dona of Memoirs of a Pinay in America reminded me of my birthday at this early stage already. Still a lot to count before my birthday comes:) I never used to bother about it, it comes when it comes, in fact, I even hated the thought of having another year again.. lol...

However, this is the exciting thing about this coming birthday of mine. You know why? I WILL BE DUE TO GIVE BIRTH the same month as my birthday! When is it gonna be Madz? END OF SEPTEMBER my dears... My birthday is the 28th September, and will give birth sometime between the 3rd and the last weeks. Can't really wait...

The rules are...
1. Make a list of what you want on your birthday...

2. The list should be 15 numbers

3. Post the image of this award in your posting

4. Give it to 10 friends of yours.

HERE ARE MY WISH FOR MY BIRTHDAY: (you still have at least 9 months to prepare, so don't worry too much okay?) hahaha...

1) That God will grant His birthday present to me, that He would answer our prayers - to see my 1st baby healthy. Having him/her on my birth month is additional thing to be grateful about.

All I want is my baby - even if it would mean for us to celebrate in bed for as long as I have my baby and hubby beside me, I would be the happiest person to celebrate birthday... huhuhuhu

3) Oh not only baby, would be nice to have TWINS - to see hubby holding the other one while I will be busy with the other one... hahaha can't really wait to see our reaction!!

4) To have fulfilled our plans by that time - to be able to finish the renovations to be made in our mango plantation in Bohol - house and converting the rice fields into fish ponds, hubby's wish.

5) To still see hubby in this job - recession has been affecting a lot of jobs elsewhere, so as the diamond industry. Though we may be closing down in 2 months time time, but fingers crossed to be back in operation by then! A lot of money involved, enough to buy another mantion!! hahahahaha

6) To have bathroom in the UK be fixed by then.

7) To be able to finish my 6 months review for the CPA Board Exams - while I stay in the Philippines during my pregnancy period, might as well to take a review and will try as much as I could to be able to take the board exams at the same time.

8) To become a Certified Public Accountant - having a license is one of my dreams. I had to set this aside for my family, 8 years ago when I decided to stop my review (pause my ambitions for a while) and have left the country for Angola hurray!!!

9) To see my sister who is working in Taiwan - we seldom
see each other, the last time we were in the Philippines together was 3 years ago! Maybe I should ask her to come home when giving birth.

10) Somebody must give time to go shopping for me - to buy me presents hahahaha

11) To see you in person! Yes you Don, I am talking to you...:)

12) To meet my blogging Sisters and Dhangz in person too.

13) To see my nursing sister to go back to school again - to finish her last year after giving birth this coming May. She should be alright by then. I want to see her as a Professional Nurse, not just being a mother!

14) To see my best friend who is now in Italy - we've chatted when they were still in CA before her hubby assigned in Italy. Never heard from then. Aside from my wish to go around Europe!

15) Making more friends in blogosphere - it is such a pleasure to be recognized by other bloggers too, to be called as one of their friends, to be remembered always and to be taken care of.

True friends are hard to find, and I do believe that it doesn't take such a long time to know a person, talking with each other most of the times (even if haven't met in person) as a way of knowing - IS MORE THAN ENOUGH TO DETERMINE YOU AS GENUINE AS I AM TO YOU....

Let me pass this on to the following, whom I have found the real treasure of a true friend - back to Dona, Dhemz, Umma, Faye/Maus, Rechie, Lynn, Belle, Amy, Katty, Cookie, Rose, Mommy J, Te Lanie, te Cecille, Elizabeth, Richelle, Hazel, Weng.

Hubby Is Experiencing Some Cravings For Me?

Let me start this with a BIG LAUGH!! Lol , I was laughing to death when hubby told me that he had 2 GREEN APPLES this morning which he doesn't normally do! That as early as 8am before his morning meetings, he had to go to our main kitchen to ask for some APPLES? hahahahaha...

Really weird in the sense that he doesn't normally look for something to
eat in the mornings nor craving for anything at all? DO HUSBANDS CRAVE TOO? Is this for real?

I have been wandering around the net, looking for an answer to this question, but could not find any... Maybe you have the answer for me.

What do I crave instead? Yes same as hubby, I do love eating green apples too, in fact, just two nights ago, I had to see him asking to go to our main kitchen to ask for green apples. Plus during that night I ALSO WANTED TO EAT FRIED CHICKEN...LOL, and at lunch times I always wanted my FRESH TOMATOES mixed with slices of AVOCADO too...

When I mentioned FRIED CHICKEN, he laughed at me instead and said he'll ring up KFC. "You must be kidding me, 'don't you ever tease me like that". We know it doesn't exist here, feel sad really... Though probably our baby is asking to feed him/her.

At least I only crave for foods that we could find here, otherwise, could be worst!

Stunning Wedding Rings For A Lifetime Pledge

One of the couples "must-have" when entering to marriage are wedding rings. These are one of the signs to tell the world that you are a married person, and we have to keep in mind that despite the special day associated with the ring; this will be an everyday ring. We need to ensure that the style, weight, form and fit result in comfort and a look suitable for everyday wear, from casual to elegant. Simple bands are always a solid choice, whether a black tungsten rings you can never go wrong with simple elegance.

Titanium rings are extremely lightweight, almost as light as aluminum, offering comfort to those who are not used to wearing rings. When you are wearing a titanium wedding band, it's not uncommon to forget you have a ring on your finger. Tungsten rings are on the opposite end and a bit heavier, perfect for those who like the feel of heavy jewelry.

If you've ever been looking for these type of metals, then you came at the right place. They offer varieties of gorgeous styles, plus high quality titanum necklace, crosses, titanium bracelets, and chains.
It therefore, should be not only your most important decision, but the one that you find the most pleasure in.

My Pregnancy Test Result and Poems for My Future Baby

I was so overwhelmed the moment I saw the result when I took my test the other day. We both could not even stopped putting smiles on our faces and thanking God to have been given another chance again, another hope to see the fruit or maybe fruits:) of our love and marriage. I could not ask for more now, except to have a healthy pregnancy and of course a healthy baby. That the little angel inside of me could be able to survive for 9 months, that she or he is eager to see us same as what we do!

My baby, here I am to offer you my love as your mother:

How Much Longer
Mitzi J Confer

I'm waiting so impatiently

To see your sweet face

It seems to be taking forever

Before my life, you Grace

My arms long to hold you

To touch your soft skin

How much longer now

Before I see your tiny chin

All my instincts tell me

It has to happen soon

But as the days and weeks go by

My life is filled with gloom

How much longer, Lord

Must my arms ache to hold

This precious life inside me

His birthdate yet untold

From the Beginning...

Mothers give the greatest gift,

that we on earth can receive.

A life to live and love to give;

the day she does conceive.

She carries me close, inside her.

Her heartbeat I do hear.

Her voice sounds like Angels singing-

The first sweet sound I hear.

Her touch is; Oh so gentle.

So secure I feel inside.

Only wondering how much longer,

in her womb I must abide.

Then the day comes,

when I no longer need to stay.

I only want to be outside-

in her arms I wish to lay.

I twist I turn,

I push I shove,

I open my eyes

and look above.

So scared I feel,

I just want to hide,

then her voice I hear,

so close by my side.

Then I see her-

The most Beautiful sight I've seen,

reaching out for me- her eyes full of tears,

yet still a happy gleam.

I snuggle and cuddle,

as close as I can.

As she kisses me gently,

and then takes me by my little hand.

I love her instantly,

as much as my small heart can bare.

Bundled up in her arms;

I grasp a strand of her soft hair.

I wrap it in my hand,

So, so very tight.

wanting to make sure that-

she is with me throughout the night.

I settle in quickly,

and slowly drift off to sleep.

As my mother carefully watches over me,

and counts each toe on my feet.

I see her in my dreams,

I feel her in my heart.

And I know this feeling will be here, in life,

even if we are apart.

So Mother, when you think of me,

know that this is true;

When I think of Undying Love,

Mother I am thinking of YOU!

Home Improvement Tips At Sinks USA

DIY system is proven to be and a very effective way to save money. At home, hubby and I always love to do, repair, assemble things by our own. All we do is to drive through to any DIY stores to buy all the materials needed! I never realized before that it was going to be fun, though I always thought doing and constructing yourself is for all time to be an interesting work to do.

If we start doing things, we always make sure to finish it to be able to see the result of all our efforts. Just few weeks before we came back to work, we managed to finish your garden,
cleaning our carpets, bathroom would the next thing we need to do (to replace the whole lot), and kitchen was the last thing we did! We replaced the cupboards, and we bought a new working surface, but it was tough as to what sort of color would match our kitchen paint and so with the kitchen sinks.

We decided to buy Equal Double Bowl Undermount Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink, I just love having two bowls to give me an extra room - one where to put the liquid soap and the other one where to drain the washed ones. Find the following specifications:
  • Heavy duty 18 Gauge, Premium 304 Series 18/10 chrome-nickel Stainless Steel Construction
  • Sound Deadening Pad and Insulation Paint
  • Ships with Cut-Out Template and Installation Clips
  • 3.5 In. Drain Opening
At Sinks USA you could be able to find varieties of unique designs and manufacturing company of sink related products. Which compelling combination of selection and value are their main concern.

Anyone Wants To Buy A $30,000 Cell Phone for Valentines Day

Far too out of my price range but still smoking hot! Well, if I will be given chance to own it, I'd rather have the money instead. This is so ridiculous!!Have you heard of this Vertu Boucheron 150? Apparently, this is made from “solid gold” and is meant to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Boucheron jewelry house in Paris. According to the designer, it took 1,000 hours to cut into shape, 700 hours to hand polish, and more than 500 hours to build.

This is probably the world's hottest new phone and
Vertu's most beautiful ever made! It is the creation of Vertu for Parisian jewellry house Boucheron, with the occasion of the 150th Anniversary.

“The essence of the single edition Vertu Boucheron 150 was to create something unique with signals of both brands,” said Frank Nuovo,
Vertu Principal Designer. “Using the Vertu Signature platform, but taking it away from the core design and creating a visibly stunning statement that breaks all expectations of mobile phone design, resulting in a true piece of sculpture. The constantly changing angled surfaces allow a cut stone appearance, inspired by the clearly faceted stones which are a significant part of Boucheron’s core craft. The recognisable Vertu V shape has seemingly morphed into random proportioned patterns and directions of the three sided surfaces creating a perfect blend of Vertu and Boucheron elements. The challenge was to gain visual sparkle not from precious stones but instead through pure form and line achieved with precious faceted metal.

This amazing cell phone made of solid gold was named Vertu Boucheron 150 and, according to the designer, it took 1000 hours to cut its unique shape, 700 hours for the hand polish and more than 500 hours to hand build. It sports an extremely durable sapphire crystal keypad, featuring high-speed 3G connectivity, and comes in a cool wooden case made from Noce Pedullo walnut tree by the Swiss house Reuge.

As you open its case you hear the signature Vertu ringtone.

These two things may sound very complicated, but for me - FRIENDSHIP can survive without love, LOVE cannot live without friendship. Here are some points you could help to identify one way or the other....
FRIENDSHIP is a quite walk in the part with the one you trust, while LOVE is when you feel like you are only two around.

FRIENDSHIP is when they gaze into your eyes and you know they care, while LOVE is when they gaze into your eyes and it warms your hear.

FRIENDSHIP is being close even when you are far apart, while LOVE is when you can still feel their hand on your heart when they are not near.

FRIENDSHIP is hoping that they experience the very best, while LOVE is when you bring them the very best.

FRIENDSHIP occupies your mind, while LOVE occupies your soul.

FRIENDSHIP is knowing that you will always try to be there when in need, while LOVE is when you will give up everything to be at their side.

FRIENDSHIP is a warm smile in the winter, while LOVE is a warming touch that sends a pulse through your heart.

LOVE is a beautiful smile to which nothing compares. A tender laugh, which opens your heart A single touch that melts away your fears. A smell that reminds you of the tenderness of heaven. A voice that reminds you of the innocence of youth.

All I can say is that, this touched my heart. They are so true and once you fall in love, you will realize how much you really need friendship in it as well. Excellent...

Reveal Your Natural Skin Beauty with 7 Cream with Manuka Honey

I must admit that I am so fussy about what sort of cream to use, which I do have my normal cream in the morning and a different one in the evening before bed time. I always do try new things, and I am considering of trying this 7 Cream with Manuka Honey as well.

Apparently, this cream while excellent as a moisturizer, protective barrier cream, and infection preventer, was also designed to be a promoter of healing for damaged skin. It is therefore very useful for injuries and burns as well as eczema/dermatitis type conditions and fungal infections. It is worth trying this.
