overnight stay...



it's not everyday that dear husband brings home something for the family but when he does it's sure to surprise us all. And today, it sure is a not-so-ordinary surprise. He brought home a pigeon!

he said it was in the middle of the road and he's afraid it might get hit by other cars so he took it home..it's still a baby and cannot fly so something must be wrong. He fed it with Porky the hamster's food and gave it water. He wants to keep it but we noticed that it's too sick to eat on it's own and feared that it might have some kind of disease or something so we decided to just let it stay for the night since it's cold outside.

He's really an animal lover..back home he has 2 dogs, both labrador retrievers and a number of cockatiels =) He used to take care of roaming pigeons, too...

here they are:

1. book - the diary of a young girl by anne frank
2. book - the devil wears prada by lauren weisberger
3. book - confessions of a shopaholic by sophie kinsela
4. shoes - schu's black pumps with detachable spats
5. phone - blackberry or nokia e63 =)
6. food - blueberry cheesecake or chocolate mousse (un buo ha, hindi isang slice, hehe)
7. gift certificate to a spa treatment (pwede din cash ibigay, haha)
8. damet pampasko (new clothes) for my 3 kids (top and bottom ha)
9. vintage notebook/laptop bag (brown)
10. trip and treat to an ukay-ukay store, weeehh

(emotera) women: because we care about so many, we have to take care of ourselves!

i truly and honestly believe that women are the stronger sex than men. yes, physically we do have our limitations but other than that, we can totally stand on our own unlike them.

two years ago, i remember waking up in the middle of the night with so much pain. i tapped my husband and told him about what i was feeling. eyes half-closed, he immediately told me "magpray ka" (say a prayer) then he went back to sleep. i cried that night..because i felt like no one cares for me =(. The next morning, I told him about what happend and we just laughed about it. It became a running joke between us eversince - telling each other "magpray ka" everytime one gets sick..

there was this tv commercial with a line saying "Pag nanay ka, bawal magkasakit" (if you're a mom, you have no right to get sick) - and that's true, atleast for me. When I don't feel well, i still manage to do things inside the house, even if we have someone to help us out. Just last week, i had a terrible case of colds..but after taking 2 tablets of bioflu, i got better after 2 days - take note: i didnt really have ample rest during that time. I still wake up early in the morning to prepare breakfast, etc..i even managed to do the laundry.

now, my husband's down with a flu ( for 2 days now). He's in bed right now, sleeping like a baby.. i haven't had enough sleep for 2 nights now because i'm constantly monitoring him. i'm just like that when one of our children or my husband is sick..i stay up all night to check on them. Plus, my husband acts like a child whenever he's sick, haha..so imagine how hurt i was when he just told me to pray when i was sick, lol...he doesn't fail to show his appreciation for my taking care of him though..As tired as i am, i'm not complaining..because it feels good that someone needs me, someone relies on me - kaya bawal magkasakit!!! =)

a follow-up..

well, after two weeks of using Pond's Age Miracle Cream, i've really noticed a good change on my skin..it looks like it's always glowing and i can really feel it stretching. The last time my husband and i went out he asked me if i put make-up on. I was surprised because I didn't even put pressed powder. so there..i'm so loving this product right now! =)

Do miracles really happen? I hope so...



I've always been conscious about the way I look but you can never really force me into splurging on costly clothes, beauty products and the likes. I can't even imagine myself getting a haircut for more than Php150 or around USd4, haha. I have never been to a spa either- much as I would love to, the cost of it hampers me. But then as you age, your whole perspective in life also changes..not that I'm ready to splurge right on - not yet. I have always had problems with my skin - especially on my face - since I have sensitive skin. Now that I'm aging - I believe being 30 is =) - I really do need some reinforcements. I've always wanted to buy Pond's Age Miracle Cream but again, it costs a lot. Yesterday, I finally had the courage to shell out SR45 or approximately Php500 for a 50g cream. I felt really sad upon leaving the store because i could have bought so many stuff with 45 saudi riyals. I tried the product today and I couldn't contain my excitement I e-mailed my husband in the office right away..it really is different! From the first rub down to how my face feels and looks after, it definitely is worth the price..I'm more excited to see the result after a week or so..I hope my skin will look radiant by then (fingers crossed =0 )

P.S. if it works well i'm definitely gonna invest in other Pond's Age Miracle products, yey!!!

sweet escape


I wish when i'm depressed I could say I don't have the appetitie to eat because that is so not the case with me..my appetite doesn't get affected by how I feel.
Today i feel super sleepy..i don't know why..i've had a good amount of sleep last night though..so I was wondering why i keep on hitting the sack almost the whole day today.. i must have slipped in slumberland around three to four times.
What is so unusual today that I feel so lazy and heavy? Then it hit me..earlier in the day I received an email about our ringnecks back in the Philippines. They flew away because their nest was somehow rotten because of the constant rain. I was sad this morning.. that's it! That's the reason why i kept on sleeping.
I realized that my coping mechanism to sadness is 'sleep' - i can recall so many instances wherein i just sleep and sleep after i cry so hard..it's as if the pain goes away atleast temporarily..
so what about you? what is your escape from sadness? =)

men's shirt



Whenever I go out, I usually feel excited because I love dressing up or dressing down. I usually decide on what to wear a day before and sometimes I have my 'pre-wear' (I fit in my clothes before i actually wear them for an event or an occassion -don't know if there's a right term for that.

Most of my clothes were left in the Philippines since I only stay here every other six months. With limited clothes, I usually become bored with my outfits..that's when I had the idea of transforming my husband's old clothes into mine.

The first pic shows my husband's short-sleeved polo turned into a sleeveless shirtdress. I wore it with a high-waisted shorts (formerly my husband's black long pants).

The second pic also shows the shirtdress, i even made the cut-out sleeves into a belt, haha.

I'm enjoying this project so much that my husband fears of losing all his clothes to mine, lol...

who wants milk?


I first encountered Laban last year when we went grocery shopping and picked up a gallon of fresh milk. The following day, I poured some milk in a glass only to find out it tastes spoiled. I asked my husband that we should return or exchange the gallon for a new one because it's already expired. Upon getting his hand on the gallon, he told me there's nothing wrong with it except that it's not the regular fresh milk i picked up but Laban. Fresh laban is 100% full fat pure cow's milk. But whatever it is, i don't care because I don't like it...

Then last week we attended a simple luncheon party and a few friends there were talking about how good their skin look and how fit their bodies are. Then the word laban popped out! Curious, I began to ask questions. They said laban is good for those with irregular bowel movement (like me!), those with oily skin (like me, again!), and those who want to lose wait and maintain it (omg, me again!!!). They also said get i'd get used to its taste once I become a regular drinker.

So, being determined to reap the benefits of my once dreaded milk, I decided to give it a try..hmmm, come to think of it, it doesn't taste that bad and I can even compare it with a yogurt, haha..well, let's see how long i can keep it up! =) btw, there are different brands of laban here in Riyadh, KSA. I got the Almarai one. I'm not sure though if we have local brands in the Philippines or even imported ones..
