I Finally Booked My Ticket For Home Vacation

It's been almost three years that I did not go home to the Philippines. Last Monday, I finally booked my ticket and I am quite excited about it. This time is quite a long vacation. I can't imagine going home for almost three months. I guess this will be a lot of fun. I am planning to do a lot of things in our house like more improvements. I am also planning to make a another kitchen made of glass tile. I can see if I can make another terrace facing to the sea. I am also planning to make a garden with landscape and plant a lot of flowers. I also need to do some fencing in front of the house. I hope I can have the chance for sightseeing around the islands in Philippines. In God's will, I will be flying on the last week of November this year! Wish me a safe and sound trip!
I miss this place called Home! There is no other place who can replace this thing called Home! I guess I'm quite confusing but I am just happy right now! wink!

Strength of a Man, Beauty of a Woman

It's afternoon now in our place. I am finally sitting in front of my computer. I was very busy this morning during some errands. I have to go the bank for some transaction, dropped a mail in the post office, started cleaning my car to get ready for the inspection of the renewal of its registration on Friday. I am still not done cleaning it because the rain start dropping. I decided to go inside the house and cook for lunch. I am happy because I had eaten my simple but delicious lunch.

As I opened my mailbox, I read about the forwarded email of my sister from Las Vegas. I decided to post it in this site to share this beautiful words about the true beauty of a man and woman..seems interesting but these are truly wonderful words...here it is!
I hope that we are trying to keep the real beauty in us! I always try! Have a wonderful day to all!

Strength of a Man

The strength of a man isn't seen in the width of his shoulders.
It is seen in the width of his arms that encircle you.
The strength of a man isn't in the deep tone of his voice.
It is in the gentle words he whispers..
The strength of a man isn't how many buddies he has.
It is how good a buddy he is with his kids.
The strength of a man isn't in how respected he is at work.
It is in how respected he is at home.
The strength of a man isn't in how hard he hits..
It is in how tender he touches.
The strength of a man isn't how many women he's Loved by.
It is in can he be true to one woman.
The strength of a man isn't in the weight he can lift.
It is in the burdens he can understand and overcome.

Beauty of a Woman

The beauty of a woman
Is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure she carries,
Or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman
Must be seen from her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
The place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman
Is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman
Is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows,
The beauty of a woman
With passing years-only grows.

Lucky is the man who is the first love of a woman,
but luckier is the woman who is the last love of a man.

Still Trying to Wash Away Some Weight

I am back! I just forget to mention that I am thankful for this very wonderful weekend. I hope that you also had a great one. For my aim to wash away some excess weight, we went walking this afternoon for almost two hours. Yesterday was even a lot of walking as we had a weekend sightseeing in Bayreuth. If I can do a lot of walking everyday, I guess I don't need to take weight loss pills. I read some reviews on the net that there are weight loss pills that are effective. I will see if I can find the most effective one that causes no side effects. It's time to bid goodnight. I hope to give you more updates tomorrow! take care too!

Footwear Shopping

August is almost ending. It also means that summer is almost ending in Europe. The Ber months are also almost here. I can't wait to go for vacation to my home country and see my family, relatives and friends once again. I am also looking for more sandals which I can use during the warm weather in the Philippines. I also love the Naot shoes and sandals which I just saw online. I believed these sandals are durable ones because it is made of leather. There is a very nice style that I like most, the Naot Carmen Brass/Platinum leather. I will see if my sister in the United States can buy some for me since she will also go home for vacation. I always love footwear shopping. I will see if Footwearetc. delivers in Europe countries. Have a great evening and a wonderful week ahead.

Weekend Escapades in Eremitage Palace in Bayreuth

Good evening everyone! I am quite tired now after having an escapade in Bayreuth here in Bavaria, Germany. We visited some gardens and palaces in this city. One of the palaces we visited is the Eremitage. My husband don't have the desire to visit the palace but after convincing him to drive for around 6 kilometers more from Bayreuth City Center, we finally went to the place. The palace is really worthy to visit. I love especially its royal garden.

I am sharing some photos for now since I already want to sign-off and take a rest. More photos and updates tomorrow in my other sites. Have a great evening and wish that you enjoy your weekend too!

taking a pose at the so-called Upper Grotto in Eremitage. This place was so amazing!

I have a loving, understanding and supportive husband. We just live a simple but happy life. What else can I ask for? I am thankful to God for all the blessings and graces we always receive. God is truly great! I always pray that we will be given good health always including my family and friends! I'll see you later again. It's time to take a shower. I smell sweat after a two hours walk this afternoon. take care guys!

Weekend Escapades in Straubing, Germany


Good evening to all! I am still quite tired right now and my feet hurts because we had been walking the whole day in Straubing. It is a city in Bavaria, Germany which is around 100 km drive from our place. We don't go there to find for classroom furniture but we saw a lot of garden furniture at the Ostbayernschau which is still going on at Straubing.

There you can see a lot of different products from machines to house furniture, motorcycles, bathroom accessories, garden equipments and a lot more. The main thing why we drove there is to witness the second biggest festival in Bavaria which is the Gaeubodenfest. I will share more information especially in my Travel and Explore site. Have a great weekend to all! have fun viewing some photos here for today's escapades.

Time To Go Shopping!

It's Thursday now! I can't wait till the weekend comes because we will be going somewhere again for a short sightseeing trip. I just pray that we will be perfectly fit and healthy this weekend. I should be going for grocery shopping yesterday but due to some circumstances, I was not able to go. This morning during my tea time, I saw some very nice wall candle sconces in the advertisement. I am not so sure if I will be buying one for decoration. I already got some but I still not did not hang it. Just now, I also found very beautifully designed wall candle sconces online. I love this stuffs and all candle holders. I even have some porcelain and crystal candle holders. It's time for me to get ready for grocery shopping! I wish everyone a great day too!

Jura Volksfest Parade in Neumarkt, Bavaria

The festival is still going on until now! The Jura Volksfest is a festival in Neumarkt, a city in Bavaria, Germany. It is held every year in the month of August. I tried to be always present in the festival every year. Last Sunday was the first time we had witnessed the Parade. Finally I just read this morning from our daily newspaper that 103 group of participants took part during the parade. It was a great festival in the Upper Palatinate part of Bavaria. here are some photos from it!

one group that wear the Medieval costumes or dresses. you see what they carry in their hands?


guess what I was saying here?? Schnell!@&%*.. which means faster, click that camera quick!! before it's too late!

Up To The Emergency Room

This seems to be a continuation of my post last month where I was brought to the emergency room due to severe migraine. I pray and always thankful to God that this sickness will not attack me. While I was in the emergency room, I was given some sort of aspirin dextrose. I was still able to ask the doctor while he was putting me that medicine. We are just thankful that we have a health insurance that will cover all Medicare supplement if ever emergencies like this happened.

The doctor said that the aspirin dextrose will last around 20 minutes. He also said that it depends on the result of the aspirin if I will be confined to the hospital or not. I told him that I don't want to stay in the hospital. As I was feeling better, the first thing I ask was food. My husband laughed about it and the doctor said that it is a good sign that I am feeling better. I really felt very hungry because I vomited three times that afternoon and my stomach was really empty. Around 7:30 PM, I am happy that I was released from the hospital. Thanks God!

Take care everyone. Lastly I want to extend my thanks and gratitude to all blogger friends, visitors, viewers and readers for always visiting me in my sites. take care guys and enjoy your weekend!
