Advent Candles

This year is my first time to make Advent Candles. I used to buy some the past years. Last Sunday, I finally did it. Hubby was asking me that morning what am I doing with that wooden box and all those pine trees cut from our garden. I told him that I will make my Advent Candles. He was surprised that I finally had one after around thirty minutes of making it. I finally lit my first Advent candle last Sunday. Christmas is around the corner.

Have a lovely December to all! Happy holidays too!

my home-made Advent Candles. Anyone wants to order? Just kidding guys!

Learning Photography

I always love to take pictures of anything that catches my camera. Images from flowers to trees, insects, scenery, buildings, places are only some of my favorite objects. I bought a new Canon DSLR with 550D model or EOS Rebel T2I around two weeks ago and I am quite happy about it. I want to learn more about photography and I hope to catch better images with this new DSLR camera. I believed I will learn more in the future. I also bought some photography magazines to have more tips and information about photography. Taking images with my new cam is another challenge for me. Who knows one day photography will turn into another career. I am just kidding! Goodnight folks. I guess I am getting sleepy now. It is time for me to slowly sign-off. The clock is ticking to midnight. Have a nice week ahead!

The Flags

These are some flags in the European Parliament in Brussels, the capital city of Belgium. I had the chance to visit it last summer 2010. I took a photo of it after seeing the flag of Germany.

Happy Weekend!

We should be going somewhere for a trip today but since there are just a lot of things to do both online and offline, we ended up staying at home and did some of the errands that we need to do. Hubby had written two letters of cancellation for our car insurances. We found some cheaper car insurance online and we immediately changed our old expensive ones. Now, he is browsing for a cheaper electric provider and I don't know if he already tried to browse about male enhancement reviews. I believed he never did. I am also not done with my Christmas decorations. Our Christmas tree is already up since the other Friday. I am still looking for my other Christmas decors and lights. Now, I am currently loading my second laundry. I also need to fold the bedding that are already dry. I need to decorate later the four Advent's candles. I still have to do some assignments online. What a busy housewife I am.

Last but not the least, I would love to greet you all a happy weekend! It seems that this is already the last weekend of November. Christmas is coming soon! I wish you all a lovely one!
"Our God works to transform us
Till life on earth is done;
He uses trials and testings
To make us like His Son."

Now, they are gone and hope to see them again next year.

Thanksgiving Party

Good afternoon! I believed most Filipino American friends are quite busy today preparing for Thanksgiving party. Some might be done with their lunch and some are still preparing for dinner. Hubby just asked me awhile ago what time are we going to the thanksgiving party. A friend invited us to take part in their thanksgiving dinner. I know I will eat a lot later and because of that I need a colon cleanse after eating. I will for sure have a cup of green tea after eating dinner. It has been around two years now since I did not eat baked turkey and pumpkin cake. I am quite excited to see friends again.

Happy Thanksgiving day to all Americans and friends who are celebrating it. Have fun but be safe! I am slowly getting ready for the party. See you later guys!

Hubby Loves Watching TV

Good morning to all! Another week is here! I was thinking if this week is already the last week of November but it's not. I am not in a hurry for the coming holiday season but only thinking of the time that flies so fast.

Back to the main topic-Hubby is not quite happy with the TV programs we are having right now. This is especially true because one of his favorite TV channel can't be viewed anymore since we have a new LCD Television. He wants to buy a satellite receiver and hd antennas outdoor to have more TV channels. He just love watching TV especially during the night before he goes to sleep. This is his form of relaxation and he is already contented with it. I also hope that we can have more channels next month. I am slowly signing-off. I wish you all a wonderful week!

True Greatness

Or the valley down below,
True greatness is in serving
Wherever we may go."

New Boiler in our Kitchen

It happened two weeks ago. As hubby woke-up at around 4am and turned-on the light, we had a total black-out in the house. He figured out that the boiler in our kitchen was the caused of the black-out. Thanks to the fuse box which was automatically turned-off as the electric boiler had some sort of short circuit. We ended up buying a new one. We just need it especially that winter is coming soon. Hubby had to put away all the kitchen utensils that are located near the boiler to install it easily. It is also an advantage that hubby knows how to do all the plumbing, masonry, fixing electric defects and other household problems. Or else, we might ended up hiring someone who will repair such problems. We just a new kitchen next time. Hopefully next year when finances will be available. Enjoy the rest of your Friday and have a wonderful weekend ahead!

The Fountain in Schlossplatz in Stuttgart

This is one of the fountains that can be found in Schlossplatz (Castle Square) in Stuttgart, Germany. Schlossplatz is the largest square in the centre of the city of Stuttgart and home to the New Castle which was built between 1746 and 1807.

One Sleepness Night

If you are my friend in facebook, you might happened to read the post that I wrote on my wall last Friday. I was so tired that day because I was not able to sleep good the past night. Imagine going to sleep at around 4:00 in the morning because I was thinking of something. I wish to take some sleeping pills to go to sleep immediately but I don't have one. Beside, I had never seen one in my whole life. Sometimes when making a decision, I am thinking about it all over again. I won't immediately decide a certain thing especially if it cost some fortune for me. I am jobless and I always see to it that the money that comes out of my pocket is worth it. I finally decided on it and now I am quite contented. A continuation about this story will be coming soon! Good morning and Good night too! It is bedtime!

The Fountain in Cham

I love this simple but beautiful fountain in Cham, a district in Upper Palatinate, in Bavaria, Germany. I had been here once but we always pass this place by everytime we drive to Czech Republic.

Chinese Buffet

I am talking something delicious tonight. For sure, if you love food especially Chinese delicacies, you might be drooling when seeing this food. I took this image when we ate in one of the Chinese buffet restaurant in Frankfurt. There are more than ten recipes on the table excluding salads and desserts. You might want to take Brazilian diet pill after eating buffet here. I don't really tried a lot of recipes but only concentrated on shrimps, fish and rice. After having two plates of it and some vegetable salad, I was already very full. I was also surprised because the prices are not so expensive. I am thinking of coming back here in my next visit.

Worry vs Work

"The reason why worry kills
more people than work
is that more people worry than work."

TV Program

Another day is here again! I can't imagine that 5:00 PM now is already dark. Yesterday as I drove back home at around 4:30 PM from Neumarkt with a friend, the street and surroundings was so foggy. I drove slowly to make sure that we will arrive home safely. Thank goodness, we did!

That morning while getting ready to go to Neumarkt, I was watching a TV program where they interviewed some people with sickness and disabilities. Some are already receiving social security disability because it is already impossible for them to find a job due to being handicaps. I felt pity for those people who are like that. I mean with handicaps. I am very thankful that I am born healthy and without disabilities.


Allsup is a leading nationwide provider of financial and healthcare related services to people with disabilities. Allsup does not provide health insurance. They assist people that need disability insurance in getting it. Disability insurance is not purchased, it has been paid for through your FICA taxes. Since 1984, Allsup has helped more than 130,000 people receive their entitled Social Security Disability Insurance and Medicare benefits. Allsup employs more than 600 professionals who deliver services directly to consumers and their families, or through their employers and long-term disability insurance carriers. Allsup has a 98% success rate for those who complete the SSDI process with us. Complete Allsup's free online Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) evaluation. Allsup appreciates how difficult it can be to get the Social Security disability benefits you deserve. People who choose Allsup usually get their SSDI award faster. Allsup only charges a fee if we obtain Social Security disability benefits for you. We can help you get the SSDI benefits you deserve, whether applying for the first time or appealing a denial. SSDI is provided by the SSA to people who qualify and have paid into the system (FICA taxes). There is no transaction – we shouldn’t use that word. We can help people file a disability appealafter they have been denied by the SSA. It is convenient and easy to work with us and we make the process easier. And the backlog is due to high demand or rather an increase in SSDI applications. No one pays us to get SSDI either – we are paid a fee for helping people through the process with the SSA.
