Red Flower

Image
These flowers are growing in our garden in the Philippines. I have no idea now what is its excalt name. We call it in our dialect "saging-saging" which menas banana because its leaves look like banana. I hope I can its correct name later.

I Love to Click My Camera

Another week is here! I just remember that this week is already the last week of March. Summer time is finally here in our place. It is not a very good idea because the weather is still not so friendly. It is raining right now and I don't have the chance to visit the castle ruins near our place. I want to to take some pictures before all the trees around the castle start to grow. Taking pictures of anything is one of my passion. In fact dear HB told me that I am a photography addict. The problem is, I just know how to click my camera and to take a good picture is really my problem. I also love taking macro images but it is not so good. In guess, I still need to know more about it. Thanks to the tips and information shared by Article City on Macro Photography.

I also found some tips on how to capture Shutter Speed and Focus at Web World Articles. I immediately bookmarked these sites for future reference. I want to read and analyze them once I have time. …

Lovely Flowers and Sky

Image
I miss these flowers from our garden last year. Some of these won't come back anymore this spring and summer time. At least I have some memories from them through the images I had taken. The roses for sure are slowly coming back now. I can't wait to see them again. I have been very busy also the past days working and planting more flowers in our garden.

That's all for now guys. I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Busy Busy Busy Friday

Life has been quite busy for me the past days. I have some errands to do and most of the time this week, I am working in our garden. I also have a house to clean, go grocery shopping, wash the dishes, cook for food, etcetera! What else does a housewife do? but I am telling you guys, I am enjoying my life. I don't really feel bored even I am just staying at home. I don't understand why other women who are so busy in their house and with their children still have the time to gossip and making false stories of other people. That is worst especially if you are doing it to your neighbor and all the words and stories you are talking are all lies.Right guys? This is nonsense! I better stop my rants now before it is getting deeper. I only want to share good things here if possible..wink! I am trying.

Anyway, I am a SAHW or a Stay At Home Wife. I have a quite, peaceful and happy life with my hubby. We are having a simple but happy and contented living. So what else? I…

At The Beach

Image
Just sharing this pictures for the wonderful memes today. This was taken during my vacation in my home country. We still need to clean this beach of ours by removing those big stones. It is quite dangerous especially for the kids when they go swimming. Good evening to all!

Be Careful When Using Your Debit cards

I just read this afternoon about some information regarding the use of debit cards and when to avoid using it. I was trying to browse that link but I can't find it anymore. I rather share my experiences about it. These are some reasons why you avoid using your debit cards. First, never use it when shopping online. It can be very dangerous. I would suggest that you use your credit card which is quite safer as using your debit cards. If you need credit repair services, you can also try to click this link here. Second, never use your debit cards when paying for restaurant bills. You might give your account information to them. Again using credit cards is safer. Do not also use your debit cards when you go shopping. I guess it is very obvious why. You can browse online for more tips and reasons why you need to avoid using your debit cards.

Spring is Finally Here

Image
Another weekend is here! My sister that today is beginning of spring time in Dallas, Texas. I also heard this afternoon over a radio station here in Germany that today is the beginning of spring time. That is the reason why we headed to Burglengenfeld to buy some flowers and other stuffs for the house. I already started planting flowers this afternoon in our garden.

I am also sharing a picture of the Burglengenfeld Castle as we passed by this afternoon. You can only see the tower from this castle. What a gray sky we had but I am thankful that it is warmer now with a temperature of 16 degrees centigrade. I am so happy! Happy weekend to you too!

I Am Pregnant

It's another TGIF again. I checked my facebook account this morning and was surprised with other friends post on my wall. Yesterday, I posted that I will be driving to the doctor. One friend commented and asked if I am pregnant. Yes or no? Not really it was a false alarm. I guess I still need to lose some pounds and might take the best weight loss supplements if any other things won't work out. How I also wish that I will get pregnant soon. That would be one of the greatest blessings in one's life especially for women who want to be a mother. On the other hand, I am also thinking that if I have a kid already, I can't no longer travel anytime and anywhere I want. Whatever comes on my way, I believed it is God's will and there is always a reason for it. Cheers and enjoy the coming weekend!

Look at The Foggy Skies in Innsbruck

Image
What a foggy gray sky we had as we passed-by Innsbruck in Austria last August 2006. I remembered, it was my birthday as we headed this part in Austria. That was quite a nice trip despite the unfriendly weather. We had a good time watching the scenery of nature around. I hope you had a great time watching the skies also! have a great weekend!

Remembering My Vacation

I remember my long vacation in the Philippines especially that I saw the pictures that were developed yesterday. Imagine a thousand pictures from my vacation. It was awesome! Of course I always remember my families there especially my parents, brothers and sisters, my relatives and friends too. I also remembered bringing with me bottles of vitamins for men especially for my father and brothers. I guess my father need some supplements since he is already getting old. I also instruction him how to take the tablets because they are written in German language. My last reminder was to take it everyday and never miss it. I guess it helps him especially the soluble vitamins I brought for him. HB and me hope to spend a vacation in the Philippines next year! We will see but HB really want to go.

Let's Get Cyber Wet

Image
It's time to get cyber wet again. Thanks to this meme where we can share pictures to all forms of water. The picture I have here was taken in Alona Beach resort in Panglao Island in Bohol, Philippines. This was my second time to visit this place. In fact during our first visit, we went swimming to this pool here. It's time for me to take a bath now. I want to relax for a while in the tub. See you later guys!

Snow is slowly Melting

We had sunshine this morning as I woke-up. In fact our weather today is around 16 degrees centigrade. It is not so cold anymore. The snow around our place is slowly melting. I can't wait for the spring time anymore. I am ready to plant the flowers I bought this month. I also bought more bigger flower pots because I want that our garden will be full of flowers for the whole spring and summer time. I already see a lot of people walking around trying to enjoy the warm weather. I also want to go walking this afternoon but I don't have time anymore. I did some things in the house and also went to the doctor for some check-up. I'm sure hubby is also happy with the nice weather. He is also excited when the spring time comes. He also keeps on telling me that he need to lose some weight to feel better and younger. He want to go walking often this coming spring and summer time or else he might be forced to take diet pill for men. I already saw some flyers on …

Saw Some Red in Disneyland, CA

Image
I guess I am quite late with my RT entry. I am sharing you this picture before I sign-off for tonight. This was taken in Hollywood in Disneyland, California during my 2 months vacation in the U.S. last 2008. Goodnight guys and have a great evening!

Got a Bad Stomach

I don't know what's happening to my stomach now. I am thinking what had I eaten at dinner time that I always need to go for a personal necessity. I guess you know what I mean. I remember some friends of mine who are drinking a sort of tea to help them go to the toilet. What is happening to me now is strange. I know I probably need diet supplements to lose some weight but not like this that I need to go five times to the toilet in five hours. I only ate a cookie and had two glasses of milk as dinner. I don't usually drink milk in the evening but I don't know what came to my mind that I drunk two glasses tonight. I am not so sure if it is exactly the cause of my LBM or "loose bowel movement". I hope this will get better soon. See you later guys! The night is getting shorter for me.

Lovely Tiger Orchid

Image
I really don't know how this orchid is called. Is it a Cambria or a Dendrobium? I am not so sure. I will call it yellow tiger orchid. If you have any idea about the exact name, I truly appreciate it. Thanks in advance. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. I am signing-off now!

Excited for the Spring Time

We had a bit crazy weather today. Sometimes in the day, the sun shines, the rain pours and the sky turns from gray to clear and from clear to gray. In other parts of Bavaria, Germany there was rain and snow. I don't know but I guess this is a typical spring weather. I heard over the radio that spring will officially start in Bavaria this coming weekend. I am quite excited for the coming of spring time. I can finally go walking again because it is not so cold anymore. I believed that walking is a natural fat burner and is also good for our joints, muscles and body as a whole. I can't wait to see also the plants and the flowers in our garden to grow and bloom again. Spring is almost here! It is another beautiful season of the year!

Not Another Snowy Winter Skies in Bavaria

Image
"Snow drops like cotton balls outside.
It makes the surroundings gray and sad.
Its truly a cold and freezing weather now.
But always remember,
there is always beauty in winter time."
Ruby Benz

It is still snowing outside right now. I thought the spring time is almost coming but here comes snow again. The picture was taken last Sunday as we took a walk in our place. The day before we took our walk, it was snowing so hard but during the next day, you can already see the blue sky and the white surroundings. Since yesterday it was also snowing...Now we have a lot of snow again.

You can also see the tower of the castle ruins in Hohenfels from afar. Have a great and blessed weekend in advance to everyone!

Let's Go Swimming in Cebu

Image
This is quite funny guys. This happened during our vacation last 2006 in the Philippines. My sister and her two kids from Mindanao also visited us in Cebu that time. My nephew Ading, told us that he already want to go swimming in a big swimming pool. Imagine a huge swimming pool that you can see in the picture here! He was three years old that time and he really loves the water. Me and HB can't avoid to smile every time we remember Ading.

My father is also planning to make a pond in this place. I am not sure if he need a pond light if ever that project will materialize. There are still a lot of things to do in our house and I guess, the pond project will take place once the house is totally finished. I miss the blue sky, the blue sea and the sunshine in this part of the Philippines called Cebu. "There is still no place like home", as the saying goes!

It's Time to Go Grocery Shopping!

Image
It's another Monday! First of all I would like to greet all women out there for simply being a woman! Congratulations to all our achievements socially, economically and politically. Today is our day and whatever success we had done in our life, our family and for others, we have to celebrate it today and I hope everyday! Good luck to all of us!

Back to my main topic..I went grocery shopping today. The place where I always go shopping is around fifteen minutes drive from where we live. HB is happy now because I am already back from a long vacation in the Philippines. He don't need to spend extra time to go shopping especially after his work. I got all what we need for the whole week. The picture below is one of the shops where I buy groceries. I hope that you are having a good start of the week!

Church in Munich, Germany

Image
I am trying to find out what is the exact name of this Church in Munich which we passed-by last June 2007. I guess I can't find it right now. I have been googling it but still of no success. I appreciate any idea what is exactly the name of this Church in Munich. Thanks in advance. Happy weekend!

Cold Feet

Another TGIF is here! Are you happy? yes I am because we are going to a birthday party later which means that there will be yummy foods again. I don't know what happened to my right foot last night. It turned very cold when in fact my left foot was very warm. It was cold as ice. I was wearing a thick winter socks already. What I did was, I woke up and went near our fireplace. I made something like an electric fireplace insert. I guess that's how it is called. I stayed in front of our fireplace for some minutes until I am feeling very warm especially my right foot. I can't imagine HB without wearing socks when he is inside the house. Sorry guys, I always need socks even it is summer time. That's how I am and I am used to it already. I'm going offline now. It is time to get ready for the party! happy weekend!

Go Wordless inside Warwick Castle in England

Image
This blog go semi-wordless today. Of course you are allowed to talk while touring inside Warwick Castle in Warwickshire, England. It seems that those people inside are mostly true but some were made of wax. You will know it once you make a visit inside the castle. Tschuss!

Free Netbook Here

I guess my title is very surprising. This morning as I was reading a monthly magazine from Schlecker, I found this offer; Free Smartbook netbook if you subscribe for two years contact for Samsung S5230 cellphone. It cost 14.95 Euros a month. I would probably take the offer if they will give away Acer Aspire netbook. Actually I am still thinking about it because I want to give the netbook to my sister in the Philippines. She is currently attending Nursing course in college. She is actually a second courser after graduating in IT last 2003. She told me that she needs a computer for her research and projects. I also have to check it before if my other sister in the US had already bought one for her. I give you an update next time. Have a lovely weekend to all!

WW: View from Our Window

Image
I miss this place! This is what I always see every morning and the whole day when I was still here. My vacation is over and I have to go back to my second home in Europe. What left of me now are the images I took from this place. This is somewhere in the South of Cebu. HB said he want to retire here because for him like any European, this place is a paradise. What do you think? take care guys!

Fireworks at Sinulog Festival in Cebu City, Philippines

The first day of March is almost over now. I hope that you are having a good one. Some might not have a good day, some might have a very inspiring day.

I wish to share more pictures of Sinulog next time.
