Just a few more days and it would be goodbye 2010, hello 2011! How time indeed flies so fast! Wasn't it just days ago that we're all at a fuss to meet the new year? Ah, but it was indeed a great roller coaster ride of a year. There were ups and downs, triumphs and sorrows.The year ushered in blessings but it also meant losing some dear old friends and relatives. The family members are all in good health although there were months when the kids would end up in the hospital.But nevertheless, the year 2010 was not a bumpy ride for us, to a certain degree. And I thank God for that.
I've prepared a wish list in here that I hope to fulfill this year, in this year of the metallic rabbit. While it may still be too early to make assumptions, 2011 will hopefully be a year of creative pursuits and prosperity judging from the characteristics of this very fuzzy,lovable animal.
My Not So Unusual Wish List:
1) To Pursue Money-making activities
2) To Learn To Play The Guitar (again!)
3) To Devote Myself To a fitness program (and learn belly dancing!grah!)
4) To Be More Spiritually Aware
Hopefully I will be able to make concrete steps to make these a reality and not just mere wishes! huhuhu!!
HAVE A FRUITFUL NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!

Happy New Year Everyone!What a great way to meet the New Year, by getting to know fellow bloggers from all over the globe! Here's my share for this week's MMOM!
1. What are your New Year's Eve plans?
We will have an early dinner at my mom's place and then head back home just before the clock strikes 12 midnight! This is because it's our family tradition to be at home by midnight and open all the doors and windows! Aside from that, we make all kinds of noises such as fireworks,firecrackers,blow horns and toss coins at the front door! Whew, talk about rituals for goodluck!!
2. How tall are you?
I'm just about 5 feet and 2 inches, really petite!
3. What is your favorite pudding flavor?
Choco pudding for me!!
4. What room of the house do you blog the most in?
It would be at the receiving room. Hopefully, if I get to have my own laptop I can do blogging anywhere even at coffee shops!
5. What is your best physical feature?
Wooh,this is kinda hard! haha!But I guess it would be my eyes, since I get a compliment or two everytime, especially with eyeshadow on since it highlights my eye color!
Well, that's it my friends! How bout u!Would be glad to hear from you,too! Have a great day everyone!

Hey there lovely people!MERRY,MERRY X'MAS!It's kinda late, today being a Wednesday already but hope I can still join in the fun of this week's Meet Me On Monday discussion and topics.Here's my share,too!
1. What will your Christmas dinner consist of?
It has been family tradition for us to have Spaghetti (Filipino style) and Fruit Salad on the table for our Christmas dinner or Noche Buena as we locally call it here. This year we will also have moderate servings of ham and fried chicken, few loaves of bread, some fruits preferrably apples and yes, biko and suman, which are Filipino kakanin or delicacies.
2. Do you watch commercials or flip through the channels?
I watch commercials as I don't have any choice!Haha! But anyways, commercials is a genre all its own, mirrors the values and virtues of a nation and can have underlying messages that aim to educate and inform people.
3. How long will you leave your Christmas decorations up?
We usually leave the decorations up until the first week of January just before the Feast of the 3 Kings which usually falls on the first Sunday of January. The Christmas Season is definitely one of the looongest celebration here in the Philippines!
4. What movie makes you cry every time you watch it?
I easily cry when I watch romance flicks with a rich dose of drama and conflict. So far two flicks that come to mind are the following: Bridges of Madison County and Serendipity. I cried maybe a bucketful of tears back when I first watched these flicks! Everytime I have the time to watch it these days it's still the same though, lotsa tears! :)
5. Do you have a Facebook?
Yes, I do! Add me up at FB,okay!! ha,ha!
Well,well! That's about it,hope you liked my share for this week's MMOM! Till next week, have a great day everyone!!

Hi there,everyone! Another great week here at GT! This week's topic is our perfect little place to de-stress. Hmm, this is really astounding.
For me, the best place to de-stress would be the Laundry Area. This is where I do my LABADA more or less thrice a week! This may seem out of the ordinary but doing the laundry is one task that chills me out and de-stress my being! The endless pagkukusot somehow calms me and gives me the luxury of time to think of countless things how mundane it may be. Even if washing clothes require a lot of effort and could put you to a lot of physical strain I don't really mind at all. Somehow the water cools me down and the soft humming sound of the washing machine is a fitting companion for the daydreaming labandera in me!
So, what about you! It would be great to know about your de-stress zone,too! Wishing you all a very,Merry Christmas!!

Another great week here at GT! Am a bit late in posting my entry but hope makakahabol pa rin,haha!
One favorite place my hubby and I would often visit is the People's Park In The Sky! This is located in Tagaytay City and it's referred as a great vantage point where you can see almost all of Cavite,Laguna,Batangas.
With temperatures that can drop to as low as 20-22 degrees Centigrade it's a great place to just cuddle up,enjoy the views and marvel at Nature!We usually hitch a ride going to the top of the park but when it's time to go home we usually take a hike down its winding trails until we reach the main road where most of the jeepneys would be waiting.
It's one of the most unforgettable places for me as we always visit it especially when we were still living in Cavite. But now that we're back here in Davao I am looking forward to that time when my hubby and I can visit the place again!! Well, maybe in a year or so!!
Here's a family pic taken at People's Park with our 2 kids in tow.Brought them there to let them experience the place,too!!
Well there my friends,hope I've shared something useful in here. How bout u!Would love to find out about your favorite hang-out places!! Till next week, Merry,Merry X'mas Everyone!!!

My favorite kind of cheese is definitely cheddar! I even gobble it, even without bread on! haha! mousy me!
2. What size is your bed?
It's a double sized bed just right for me and my hubby!But oftentimes it can become a foursome bed! With the 2 kids trying to squeeze in!

I know I'm not that picky when it comes to eating out.The truth is, I'm a real Chowking fanatic! So, my share today would be about this foodchain. They really serve really good Chinese recipes. My kids' favorite is the Wanton Noodles!
The sweet and sour pork is also very heavenly especially when it's still piping hot!
To top it all I will never get tired of eating the renowned Chowking Halo-halo! Especially on hot,summer days!
Well,well I really feel so full already just by staring at these pics!Till next week lovely people,gotta grab a bite for now at my favorite eat-out place! wohoo!
