Paris Trip, I love it!

The month of March is almost ending in Europe. I hope that you had a great month for March. I also wish you another great month for April. As for me, March is another good month. I had some accomplishments for this month. Some of the accomplishments I considered are buying a small lot back home and my trip to Paris last Saturday. I know these are not really great accomplishments but at least I had done something which I can be proud of. Feel free to visit my other blogs for more updates especially my Euro Travel Blog!

You can see in the background of the photo the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. I am happy and contented to visit one of the dream cities I want to go. It was a great experience seeing one of the famous cities around the world.

I won't stay too long here because I am already very sleepy now!
I wish you good luck in the next month to come..The month of Tulips as I called it! take care guys!

My Husband's Accident Insurance Claim

Happy weekend! I am just wishing you first a very great weekend because I had a great one today. Last Thursday, my husband finally received a letter for his appointment to the doctor in relation to his bike accident last August 2007. It is already more than a year now but he still did not have the claim from his accident insurance. I guess after this last doctor's examination, he can already receive it. The most importance thing is that he is expecting for some returns after that bad accident happened. Getting leads for insurance was the best decision he made. I have one too and I believed that it is really important in today's time because we don't know when emergencies come. I hope you agree with me!

History of St. Patrick's Day!

I just posted in my other blog some information about St. Patrick's Day. For those who are celebrating this memorable day especially for Irish people and other people around the world, enjoy the celebration. I am just sharing a bit history about St. Patrick.


In the past, Saint Patrick's Day was celebrated as a religious holiday. It became a public holiday in 1903, by the Money Bank. (Ireland) Act 1903, an Act of the United Kingdom Parliament introduced by the Irish MP James O'Mara. O'Mara later introduced the law which required that pubs be closed on 17 March, a provision which was repealed only in the 1970s. The first St. Patrick's Day parade held in the Irish Free State was held in Dublin in 1931 and was reviewed by the then Minister of Defence Desmond Fitzgerald. Although secular celebrations now exist, the holiday remains a religious observance in Ireland, for both the Church of Ireland and Roman Catholic Church.

Absence in the Blogosphere due to Migraine

Do you have a Migraine? if none, never ever dream from this kind of sickness. It is a terrible one, I tell you. I had again a Migraine last Thursday night until yesterday. I am feeling better last night. Thanks goodness! Now I am kickin' again in the blogosphere..not that much but I am happy to see you here again. Last Friday my migraine went worst because I vomited three times and I felt so tired the whole day. It was really terrible that I want to stay all the time in a dark room with my eyes closed and I don't want to hear any noise even talking to my husband. I want completely a noise-free and light-free environment.

When migraine attacks me, the pain is always in the left side of my head including my left eye. When it is very bad, I always feel that my left eye want to come out. Sometimes after I vomit, I felt better..sometimes not. When it is not too bad, I am only taking pain killers like Ibuprofen before it get worst. Sometimes it works sometimes not. When thi…

Sending Balikbayan Box to the Philippines

You might know some Filipinos cultures? Filipinos always have close family ties and wherever they are around the world, they always remember their families back home. One act of showing their love is helping them. One way of helping them is sharing what they also have like sending stuffs through balikbayan boxes or in terms of financial matter. I am planning to send some boxes to the Philippines again.

 I am going home anytime this year and before I go home, I need to pack-up some boxes to send some presents. Balikbayan boxes are like shipping boxes. The only advantage with this is that there is no limit on how many kilos you want to put in the box. It is very cheaper compared to having extra baggage in the airplane which cost a lot of money. Imagine an excess kilo from Europe to Philippines ranging from 30 to 50 Euros per kilo.

It is better to have the balikbayan box where you can have 2oo kilos or more in a box. Believe me I already did that! If you need some balikbayan bo…

Suffering in Silence

Happy Sunday! This did not happened today. I mean "my suffering in silence" happened last Wednesday as I had again a very bad migraine. It was so bad that I vomited and really felt very dizzy. I tried to relax in a dark room and want to to go to sleep to forget the pain but I just can't do it due to severe pain on the left side of my head. It was really very bad. I took some migraine pills but sometimes it has no effect anymore. Last year, I also had very bad migraine that my husband drove me to our house doctor to give some shot or injection. These were the worst migraine attack that I had. You can be very happy if you don't have like this. Never even dream to have it.

I did had some shoulder pains too last week and the past days got some slight headache. I don't exactly know if this is the effect of the changing of the weather now or maybe everytime I have my monthly visitor. You know what I mean ladies..Even now, I am having a sl…

I'm proud of My Sisters!

How would you feel if one member of your family succeeded for something? How would feel if your friends found a new job? or your neighbor was promoted into higher position? or maybe your own child have some accomplishments in school being included in the dean's list? Do you feel sad about it? I know some people are not happy of somebody's achievements. In fact some people are even envy of others success. Another fact, I know some people who are like that. Instead of being happy of others achievements, they are feeling insecure and envy about it. They will even find a way to make you look bad and make false gossips of you. Pity to those people who are like that! tsk..tsk..tsk!!

Anyway no matter what people say about me or some people? I don't care. I am just me and they don't know the real me. If they just know the real me, they might love me more like what my true friends do. For now, I am just happy and proud of my sister's achievement for…

Remembering my Vegas Vacation

I am happy today after having a chat with my family and siblings back home. I seldom had conversation with them due to time difference and long distance call is quite expensive. We can only talk thru chat in the internet for free. It was also a very clear and nice connection talking with them today. I was also glad hearing the voice of my dear cousin, Ann who had an emergency vacation to go home. She was asking me when I am going back to Vegas...told her when I got some I truly enjoyed her company especially when watching her live performed in Ballys Hotel. All I can say guys, I truly had a great vacation in Las Vegas. People out there w…

Good Start of the Month

Hello everyone! The first day of the month of March is almost over. how did you spend your day? I just stayed at home and did some household chores and talked to my family back home. I also had a nice conversation with a friend. I would say it is a good start of the month. I also talked to my husband about the planned trip to Paris by month-end. I am still waiting for the approval of my husband's vacation leave so that the trip to Paris, France will push through. I also can't wait to see my friend in Ramstein, a place near Kaiserslautern. From Kaiserslautern will be the starting place to hop in a bus to Paris..I am quite excited to see the "Romantic city" for the first time!

So guys, it is midnight least I had accomplished some simple things today which also made me happy and probably some friends and my family too!! I believed it is a good start of the month. I wish you all a nice week ahead..take care everyone..God bless us all!! will give …
