It's Party Time

We did had a party again in a friend's house last Friday Oct. 29, 2010. It was Joy's advance birthday party and was held at Farah's home. It was another great time being with new friends. I believed everybody had fun during the party. The highlight of the party was the lunch time. It was a total blast celebrated until the evening.

Happy birthday Joy and wish you all the best. God bless you and your family!

Special thanks to Farah for the accommodation and to all good friends who brought with them some food and presents.

Pustules on my Chin

One, two, three and four, these are exactly the pustules that I saw last night on my chin. I guess, I am eating again too much oily foods the past days. This is the result when I eat fatty foods. Now, I am having acne on chin. I immediately applied some acne cream last night. This cream was prescribed by my dermatologists since 2004 when I had a worst attack of this skin problem. Until now, you can still see evidences left by those acne. I still have some scars left on my face. That is also the reason why I am still continuing the use of a cream that removes scars. Again, another prescribed cream from my dermatologists. I am thankful that the scars are slowly gone now. If you are having acne problems right now, don't hesitate to visit your skin doctor for proper medication.

I am finally bidding goodbye online. I have to go to sleep now. There are still chores and errands that I need to do early tomorrow. Have a lovely week to all!

Road Sign

This is a road sign in Belgium. We were on the motorway as I took this image last August 2010. Belgium is the only country in Europe where I see lights on their highways. I guess, it would be nice driving here during the night. We were on our way from Brussels to Amsterdam during this trip.

Girls Talk

Good afternoon folks! How is your weekend? I should be nowhere today but I just felt so tired. I also have a lot of things to do online and offline. I did not even had the chance to go walking with hubby this afternoon because I need to finish some tasks.

So what's up with the girls' talk? I had the chance to see some friends this week and as usual there are always a lot of topics we talked about. From cooking to gardening, travel and I believed women's most favorite like shopping and beauty topics. Speaking of beauty subject, I am planning to color my hair for a new look and hair style. One friend mentioned that it seems I need a shampoo for thinning hair because I have a sort of thick hair. I guess it is not a bad idea. She also said that she know how to apply colors on the hair. That is quite a good idea. I don't need to go to a beauty shop. It also means saving some bucks. I already bought a hair color a month ago but I just don't have the chance to do it. Hopefully this week. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Sis is Happy

I finally had the chance to chat with my sister again from the United States. It's been some weeks now since I have not chatted with her. I just found her online and knocked at her. She answered and she said that she got off today. She is also happy to mention that she finally had a good acne treatment on her face. Now she is maintaining a cream to get rid of the scars left by acne. She also mentioned about her upcoming vacation to the Philippines on March 2011. She wish that I can come with her but I guess there is a conflict of time because hubby also wanted to go sometime in October next year for a vacation. Sometimes some things change, so as plans also. I will see if I can go home on March next year.

I can't stay too long now. More updates tomorrow. Goodnight!

Buying Tulips Online

I want to share some images of tulips but it seems that uploading images in blogger is not available right now. Anyway, I just read an info about it but I thought it will be tomorrow at 5:00PM PDT. Back to main topic, I still have some tulip bulbs left for planting. I hope to finish it before the ground will get frozen. Hopefully before weekend, I can do it already. A friend ask me for some tulip bulbs but I told her that I will give her some next year before spring time comes. I haven't experience buying tulips online but today I saw a flower shop where you can order flowers of all kinds including tulips. Since I am a flower lover, for sure this site will be put in my fave list. For those who especially love tulips just like me, I would like to remind you that now is the right time to plant these flowers. I can't wait to see my tulips next spring time!

Walking Around

I always go walking with HB especially when he got off from the work. This usually happen every weekend when the weather is friendly. We have a very nice surrounding in our place especially now that we are in the month of "Golden October".

Walking as a form of exercise is always good for our body. It might be one way of burning fat and losing extra weight. Nowadays, there are a lot of diet pills that help lose excess fat and weight. Some might be effective some might not. My question is, does alli work? I read a lot of reviews online that it is a good diet pill. It is also approved by FDA in the United States. I only want to suggest that before taking any, it is better to consult first your doctor.

I love walking with hubby in our beautiful surroundings. I always see nature around! Here is an image taken last month. Happy Friday to all!

Cheese, Cheese and More Cheeses

Sometimes, I already forget English terms and grammar. This is the problem when I started to learn, speak and understand German language. But I am happy that I can already basically speak and understand German. I was asking awhile ago about the plural of cheese. It is cheeses, right? Oh yeah, I got it right! This is the reason why I am sharing cheese, cheese and more cheeses here!

This was taken during our trip in Amsterdam this year and a part of it was seeing a cheese factory and how this yummy cheeses are made.

The lady who was explaining how cheeses are made told us that some of these cheeses are already 20 years old. The first thing I asked her immediately was; Can we still eat those old centuries cheeses? The answer is a big NO! That's all for my travel experience from Amsterdam for now!

I am a Green Shopper

So, what keeps me busy today? Autumn time is here now and we need to slowly save the plants that we have outside. We are already having below zero temperature in the night and I noticed that a lot of plants and flowers in our garden are slowly withering. After doing some arrangements in my chaotic PC room, I decided to slowly bring some plants and flowers inside the house. For sure, I will be doing some green shopping again next year because there are some plants that are not coming back. Unlike perennial plants that keep on coming back every year, I don't need to put them inside the house. I wish I can have a conservatory for my plants to live all year long. Probably when I will win in the lottery.

Here are some tulips from last spring 2010. I will be seeing more next spring time because I planted more this month.

Goden October is Here

Another season of the year is here!

This is the road where I always drive especially when I go for grocery shopping.

Chaos in the House

How's your day folks? I hope you had a great one. I believed Thursday is my busiest day of the week. I always go grocery shopping during this day. Sometimes when there are really stuffs that we need in the house, I also drive to the nearby town to get it. Speaking of chaos in the house, there is just a problem with the faucet in our bathroom. I don't really mean a chaos as if me and my hubby are fighting. Hubby don't like chaos anyway and of course me too. It is always a nice feeling to live a peaceful life. I also found out that our bathroom sink needs replacement already. This is one of the projects we need to do next year, bathroom renovation. That is also the reason why I am slowly searching for bathroom ideas in catalogues and also online. Back to the faucet problem, it just keep on dropping. I believed there is something wrong with the handle replacement cartridge. Hubby will fix it this coming weekend. I am proud of hubby because he can simply do everything in the house from plumbing to electrical, mechanical and yes, sometimes fixing our cars. It is a good way of saving some bucks. Right folks? See you in my other sites. Good evening!

Random Image from Rome, Italy

It is a great experience visiting the city that is the dream of many including me. Rome which has been given a nickname, "Eternal City" is truly a wonderful place to visit. It's history spans now for around 2,500 years. It is the capital of Italy and the country's largest and most populated city.

Here is an image of Vatican City in Rome taken during our visit last August 2010. You can see the famous San Pietro or St. Peter's Square on the left side of the image.

Unique Gift Ideas for Special Occassion


Hello folks! I can't imagine that we are already on the first day of the month called "golden" October. I guess you know what I mean when I say "golden". It is because, now is Autumn time and the trees around are turning into different colors. I am also quite excited because I know for sure that I will receive again some anniversary gifts from hubby. Time truly flies-by so fast. In around three weeks, we will be celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary. I still have the 5th anniversary gifts that hubby gave to me two years ago.

I am not really demanding like other wives out there. I am already contented with small things that hubby gave to me as long as it is coming from the heart. I always told him that I don't need anything because I can buy it myself. Of course, I will be happy too if I receive anniversary gifts from him. Probably this time, I would ask for a very simple present. I love cooking and I never use aprons. I always need it because I cook almost everyday. This time, I could ask hubby to buy me one or two. I found very nice ones online. What do you think with the red and black colors here? I love it! These are simply unique ideas for special occasion. I am happy too because I will be having my new notebook PC in a few days. Anyone who is looking for some 5th anniversary gifts out there? I guess you know where to go now.

I wish you all a great month of October!
