I was Once an Athlete

It is almost midnight in Europe and I am still in front of my PC..Believe me this will be my last post for tonight and I will be out in the blogosphere. Today was just a busy day for me. I went grocery shopping despite the bad weather. It was snowing today but I have to drive for some things we need at home.

Anyway, back to main topic..This is only bringing back some memories during school days. I was once an athlete back in high school and college. Being a varsity player in softball, I always enjoyed playing this game. I never experience using personalized bats in any of our games. I am just thinking at the moment of getting one and I am happy to find a site where to get it.

I guess it is time to say goodnight now! Happy TGIF to all!

Finally Had My Winter Tires On

I have been hearing weather updates in Bavaria, Germany the past days. It says that it will be snowing starting tomorrow. I am not quite sure if this will  affect our area as well. The weather is really getting colder and colder everyday. This is the  sign that winter is almost coming. This is also the reason why we already changed the summer  tires of my car to winter ones.

One good thing, we always save money when changing tires from summer to winter or vice versa. Hubby's brother in law owns a car repair shop and they have all the equipments with regards to repairing cars including coats machine. I already saw how this machine works everytime we changed the tires of our cars. One good thing, hubby can always use his brother in law's equipments for free, thus saving us some bucks every year.

I am ready for the winter season now including my car. I am always careful when driving especially during snow time and I always pray for safe driving. I hope you too!

Another Travel Gadget

If you are a traveller, you surely have a lot of gadgets when you travel. I surely do!  Yesterday, I went to the nearby town to  buy  a flashlight and  rechargeable batteries. I was looking for maha powerex brand but I cannot find one in the store. I should search and buy  it online but I have no more time because I will be travelling again  this weekend.  A flashlight and some batteries are only some of the travel gadgets and accessories I bring with me when I travel. I also use rechargeable batteries for my cameras.

I guess, it is time to finish packing up my luggage again. See you soon Basel and Strasbourg!

Football in Germany

Football is the most famous sport in Germany. Millions of Germans love this sport and many are also members of the different football fan clubs. Being an adopted citizen of this country, I am starting to love this game as well. I watch it from time to time especially when it is played live over the television.

Football or soccer is not new to me. Being an athlete back in my high school and college days, I also played different sports including softball, volleyball, basketball and other outdoor games. My favorite part is during the awarding ceremony. I could still remember our department getting most of the trophies in school. Those are some of the most unforgettable days I had during my college days, playing as varsity in softball team.

FC Bayern team during their play with  Real  Madrid. That was a very exciting game!
Now that I am living in Germany, I am starting to love watching football games. It is a very exciting and interesting sport!

Earliest Snow in Bavaria, Germany

This is history and I cannot forget October 27, 2012. This is the earliest snow  fall  that I experienced in Bavaria, Germany.  Does this mean that  winter is really here? Or it is going away again? Unbelievable but it happens! I did not expect that it is snowing today but it really is. I guess,  at the moment I am writing this post, it is still snowing outside.

I should be going out to go bonding with friends tonight but I was not able to go. First reason, my car has still summer tires. The people in the house are all busy and hubby don't have the time to change my tires to winter ones. We also plan to polish the car before winter comes but due to busyness, it was not done at all. We are also planning to change our car seats. At the moment we are looking for a company nearby who is doing leather car seat repair but since we are really very busy with home renovation  the past weeks, it is still not taking care of. I guess we will wait again until spring next year.

snow in Bavaria, Germany last Feb. 2012.
Lastly, I want to warn all my friends nearby, please be careful when driving during snow time especially those who are first timers to drive during this season. I know you can do it but please  be extra careful.  In short, drive safely!

Happy weekend to all!

Shopping In A Hardware Store

The sun is shining now! I love autumn season with sunshine.  When we drove to the
nearest hardware store in our area last week, the surroundings are already so colorful. This is the sign of fall season and I love it.


Baumarkt, a German word actually means a store that sells building materials. We are trying to find a rolling warehouse ladder but they don't seem to carry it. We ended up buying a new bath tub because we are currently renovating our bathroom. We also bought other accessories needed in installing our new bathtub and other materials needed in renovating our bathroom.

I hope that the renovation is done before the end of the month. I believed yes, we can do it!

Walk With a Friend

After the short nap I had this afternoon, I received a call from a friend who invited me to have a walk with her. I found it a very good idea since I ate a lot during lunch in a Greek restaurant near our area. I also had a good time conversing with her during our walk. She had been talking about buying a new home in the US. I want to mention to her about fayetteville nc rentals but she wanted to buy a house instead. That is also a good choice because buying one is also an investment.

I would say, I had a wonderful day today after spending with some friends. Most of all, I love seeing the nature around during our walk. The autumn season made the surroundings more colorful and beautiful. I love it!

Hello Telephone

Telephones, cellphones, Iphones, Ipads, computers, cameras, etcetera...We need some and maybe all  of these gadgets in our modern world now. These gadgets help us to communicate and exchange ideas and thoughts faster and more convenient than before. I also need the same gadget especially telephone and computer at home. Sad to say, our  phone  or landline  don't have one of those telephone answering services. That is why we need a new one soon.

When I come back from our Baltic trip, I will try to search for a new phone that works better. Besides the one we have at home really needs a replacement. Sometimes talking to someone only last for some minutes and the communication cuts shortly. Not really a good idea especially when important matters are talked and discussed over the phone.

 Have a nice day to all. I am getting ready to go for grocery shopping. There are still things to be done before we will be off tonight for our Baltic trip.

My Blogs Were Gone

It happened last month when some of my blogs disappeared. I was kind of having a panic that time because I can no longer view and access my  7 blogs. Thanks to the data protection services provided by my hosting company. After calling them and around 30 minutes of waiting,  my blogs were alive again. It was truly a fast and excellent customer service.

I am also thankful to my blogger friend Carlota for always being there to help me when I have troubles in my blogs. You are simply great my friend and I truly appreciate all your help. I am just sad that I did not have the chance to meet you while I am here in the United States. Maybe next time again. It's a small world after all!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Shopping for Furniture

Sometimes it is quite difficult to choose furniture and fixtures for our home. If you are an expert, this might be  very easy for you. Good to know that we can already get some ideas and reviews on house and home magazines or maybe in searching online on what is the best furniture  that is the best for our home. Looking for camo baby bedding for mothers is also very easy now. With the help of computer and internet, you can already enjoy shopping at the comfort of your home.

If you are still hesitating  which furniture that  best fit for you and your home, you can consult an expert for that. Good luck!

Thanks for All Your Birthday Greetings!

It was truly overwhelming. My facebook wall was flooded with birthday greetings and wishes during my natal day. I truly felt special and loved that day. Thanks to all my friends, former classmates, neighbors and family for all your wonderful words.  Thanks to friends for their birthday presents. I am happy with the large plush toys, fossil wallet, nine west bag and other gifts you gave me. Thank also to my dear husband who is  always there for me. Most of all, I am thankful to our dear God for giving me another wonderful year  in  my life. I am hoping for more and more good and bountiful years to come.

Goodnight folks and have a lovely week ahead!

A Job to Remember

I guess those workers or employees who are working in a reputable company are really  proud of their jobs. I believed I am the same. I had the chance to work before in one of the top trier banks in my home country. Due to change of residence, I left my job as a banker. I miss those days when I was wearing work uniforms everyday. It was quite a tough job because you are dealing with numbers. I was always happy and contented  at  the end of the day when I  balanced  the over-all transactions of the bank, thus producing a perfect work sheet and financial statements.

Honestly, I miss  my job as Branch Operation Assistant sometimes.  Being a  previous employee of one of the most  prestigious bank in the Philippines, I always feel  proud of it.

A Memorable Party!

I was browsing some photos from my birthday celebration last year. It was truly a memorable day for me. Everyone had fun especially during the singing and karaoke part. Next time, I guess I need a recording studio furniture to make it more memorable. I would really love to have one since I also love singing.

The sumptuous foods prepared during that party were very delicious. Thanks to my dear friends who made that celebration successful. Thanks also to the visitors that despite of their busy schedule, they made it to my birthday party.I don't have much time to

My birthday cake last year. Thanks Nadette for this.
Due to some unavoidable circumstances and change of plan,  my  birthday party for this year will be held sometime in October.  It was rescheduled because  I don't have much time to prepare for it since I will be flying to the US soon. See you guys in  October!

Short Update

I am trying to lose weight but it seems that it is very difficult to do it. I just need a will power and determination to do it but sometimes I just find it difficult. I love food and cooking and I can't avoid to say no to party invitations.

I also bought a Mat Tape last time so that I can start to do some exercise and work-out at home. Believed me guys, I haven't open the mat yet. One day, I believed I can still try my best to slowly get rid of excess weight. I am hoping.

I just need to regain my energy now after being sick with cough and colds for a weeks. I am thankful that I am feeling better now. Cheers!

Going Back To School

Another week is here. I really need to go to sleep once this post is done. I have been planning to go back to school and maybe take health related studies next year. This is still tentative and I am still finalizing it. I am just thinking how I look like when wearing one of those best cherokee scrubs. Feeling like a nurse when wearing it...hmm. Two of my sisters are nurses and the other one is soon to graduate next year. Am I going to be a nurse too? Or maybe a nursing aid or caregiver? Let me decide on that early next year. For now, I am still continuing one of dreams which is travelling when time and money are available. Going back to school will surely a challenge for me.

Have a nice week to all! Goodnight peeps!

Planning for Holiday Season

Two more months and the Ber months are  coming soon.   I know this is quite too early to plan  for holiday  season but sometimes planning earlier will surely save us  time and money.  I am actually talking about Christmas decors here since I saw some brown wire christmas lights online.  I guess it is perfect for our patio and I find unique. I am just quite excited how our patio looks during Christmas. For sure, it will be filled with decorations.

There are still a lot of plans on the line but we are trying to put first the most important ones. I can't also wait till the holiday seasons come. Have a lovely Sunday to everyone! Be safe!

The Fernsehturm in Berlin

Have you been to Germany's capital city? Have you seen its Fernsehturm? Yes, I did! It was during my trip to Berlin last year when I saw this very tall architecture. Fernsehturm is a German word which means Television tower in English. It is 368 meters high and said to be the tallest building in Germany.

As of now, there are still a lot of constructions in Germany's capital. The  latest one is  the new airport which is called the Berlin Brandenburg Airport. It looks like a huge steel span building when I saw some pictures of it during the start of the construction. I should be opened last June 3, 2012. Due to technical difficulties—primarily dealing with fire safety and smoke exhaust systems—the opening has been delayed till 17 March 2013.

Berlin has a lot of interesting structures and architecture and one of it is the   Fernsehturm located near Alexanderplatz. Here is a snapshot I took during my visit last February 2011.

Lovely Weekend!

How's your weekend  peeps! I hope you all had a lovely one. I can say, not a boring one for me. In fact, it was a great one. I am happy with what I had from yesterday's crystal shopping in Neustadt an der Wald Naab. I also met some friends there. It was wonderful seeing them again especially my godchild. He is really very cute!

There were a lot of people  who went crystal shopping yesterday. I can't imagine the first store we went to. It was really full of people. I got nice stuffs with good deals and I am happy with it. Sad to say I cannot find crystal plastic bins. Ooppss! I wasn't really looking for that. What I need is an ordinary plastic bin since ours is already broken. I need to get one anytime this week when I go grocery shopping.

I guess that is all for now peeps. I am quite sleepy now. I wish you all a wonderful week!

Sort of Adventure

I saw some sort of adventure images of some friends in  facebook. Some were jumping on the air from a plane or helicopter. How do you say that? Parachuting or freefall ? Or maybe bungee jumping? I am quite interested with the latter but I guess I need to buy my own bungee cord. How about swimming with sharks or whales? lol!

During my latest visit to Neuschwanstein Castle in Schwangau the other week, I saw some people doing paragliding. This is some sort of adventure also. If I have the chance to do it, why not!

My life is also full of surprises and adventures especially when I travel alone and I always  love it! I hope to have more travels to come in the future before my knees get weak.

Live Music at the Volksfest

I always visit the  German-American
Volksfest in one of the U.S. bases in Bavaria. This year's celebration was another success, I believed. I guess everybody's favorite especially the adult ones were  the live bands playing inside the beer tents. Everyday different bands were  playing live music during that festival.

Their music instruments  are really good. If I have the money, I would also love to buy fender super champ xd for my friend who requested me years ago to buy that instrument. He has his own band back home in the Philippines. Sad to say, I just can't afford it for now.

Have a lovely day to all!

My Dream Car When I Retire

 Sponsored Post. All opinions are mine. Am I retiring soon? Oh well, not really! Last week, I received a letter from the Retirement Office...
