Mailing and Packing Boxes

I accompanied a friend last week because she sent boxes to the US. The boxes were quite huge and heavy so I helped her carry it. At the post office, I saw this lady who was using a very colorful and eye-catching promotional tape measure. I guess she brought it in orderto measure the size of her box  for her  to know how much she will be paying for it.  I also saw this young man who had difficulty in packing his big box. Actually,  the stuffs he had in the box was only half the  size of his box.  His friend was laughing at him because he don't know how he can close and tape the box.  I showed to him the tactic how he can pack his huge box. He was thankful after that.

Sometimes people are just making things so difficult when it is so easy to do it. Until next time  again!

Absence in the Blogosphere due to Migraine

Do you have a Migraine? if none, never ever dream from this kind of sickness. It is a terrible one, I tell you. I had again a Migraine last Thursday night until yesterday. I am feeling better last night. Thanks goodness! Now I am kickin' again in the blogosphere..not that much but I am happy to see you here again. Last Friday my migraine went worst because I vomited three times and I felt so tired the whole day. It was really terrible that I want to stay all the time in a dark room with my eyes closed and I don't want to hear any noise even talking to my husband. I want completely a noise-free and light-free environment.

When migraine attacks me, the pain is always in the left side of my head including my left eye. When it is very bad, I always feel that my left eye want to come out. Sometimes after I vomit, I felt better..sometimes not. When it is not too bad, I am only taking pain killers like Ibuprofen before it get worst. Sometimes it works sometimes not. When thi…

Suffering in Silence

Happy Sunday! This did not happened today. I mean "my suffering in silence"...lol..This happened last Wednesday as I had again a very bad migraine. It was so bad that I vomited and really felt very dizzy. I tried to relax in a dark room and want to to go to sleep to forget the pain but I just can't do it due to severe pain on the left side of my head. It was really very bad. I took some migraine pills but sometimes it has no effect anymore. Last year, I also had very bad migraine that my husband drove me to our house doctor to give some shot or injection. These were the worst migraine attack that I had. You can be very happy if you don't have like this. Never even dream to have it.

I did had some shoulder pains too last week and the past days got some slight headache. I don't exactly know if this is the effect of the changing of the weather now or maybe everytime I have my monthly visitor. You know what I mean ladies..Even now, I am having a sl…

Good Start of the Month

Hello everyone! The first day of the month of March is almost over. how did you spend your day? I just stayed at home and did some household chores and talked to my family back home. I also had a nice conversation with a friend. I would say it is a good start of the month. I also talked to my husband about the planned trip to Paris by month-end. I am still waiting for the approval of my husband's vacation leave so that the trip to Paris, France will push through. I also can't wait to see my friend in Ramstein, a place near Kaiserslautern. From Kaiserslautern will be the starting place to hop in a bus to Paris..I am quite excited to see the "Romantic city" for the first time!

So guys, it is midnight again..at least I had accomplished some simple things today which also made me happy and probably some friends and my family too!! I believed it is a good start of the month. I wish you all a nice week ahead..take care everyone..God bless us all!! will give …

At least I am sharing some ideas, thoughts, opinions and of course my personal experiences sometimes. I am just happy everytime I can do that.

Birthday Party

the gifts of Renate, my husband's cousin who had her 60th birthday yesterday Aug. 31, 2008....mind those birthday cards, they have something valuable in it!!
Happy Birthday Renate..wish you all the best in life and more birthdays to come!!

We attended yesterday the birthday of my husband's cousin in Nuernberg. That was a great day seeing again the relatives of my husband. We don't usually see each other unless there are parties or gatherings like birthday, wedding and the like.

I could still remember in January 2006 wherein I met the first time most of the the relatives of my husband and I could not still speak German. Nobody talks to me except for some relatives who speaks English. Now they wondered that I already speak very good German....that's according to them..wink!!

I'm also happy about it. Since I studied German language last Nov. 2006 until April 2007, passed the exam and now have my German citizenship, I am already happy about it.

I just wish eve…

Most Important Law in Germany

I just want to share one of the most important Law in Germany. I believed this is good to share especially to those persons who live in Germany whether you are a German citizen or not. In my own opinion, as long as you live in this country, you must also respect and follow the German Laws especially the basic ones.

As I made my German Oath of Citizenship, I was given a Book entitled "Grundgesetz für die Bundesrepublik Deutschland". This means in English "The Basic Law of the Federal Republic of Germany".
I am specifically sharing below Basic Right which is stated in page 111 of this Book.

The first basic law of Germany is this;

I. DIE GRUNDRECHTE

Artikel 1

(1) Die Würde des Menschen ist unantastbar. Sie zu achten und zu schützen ist Verpflichtung aller staatlichen Gewalt.

Below is the translation of this right in English;
I. Basic Rights Article 1 [Human dignity] (1) Human dignity shall be inviolable. To respect and protect it shall be the duty of all…

Finally Arrived in Las Vegas

Yesterday was my flight from Munich, Germany going to Las Vegas. The day before, that was Friday of course we went to Hohenfel's German American Feast. We had a great evening while seeing some friends there. We went home around 10:00 pm already. As Saturday will be my trip and we have to wake up so early, I tried to go to bed as early as 11:00pm but I couldn't. I just don't know if its because of excitement or maybe because, I was used to go to sleep so late always.

Me and my husband, woke up around 3am yesterday. We drove to Munich around 5:00am to make it sure that we will make it on time for check-in....and we are really very early because my flight was delayed for almost 2 hours...instead of leaving 10:05, Delta airlines leave almost about 12:00 noon time..huh!! so long hours of waiting...there were funny things that happened yesterday..hope to share it with you next time..

Since I have a stop-over at Atlanta International Airport, I have to wait again for almost 4…

Storm Emma:... a Catastophe

Germany and some parts of Europe was hit by Storm Emma for the past days..In Germany it lasted around four days starting Friday with strong wind, rain, thunderstorm and lightnings. Last Saturday was really very bad. As we woke up, you can hear the sound of strong wind and rain outside with the roar of thunder!! really scary!!

I heard in the news that storm Emma brought millions of damages around Germany. Some buildings were destroyed, cars have accident, trees fell down, a lot of areas were flooded and more damages. That was really a catastrophe.

Yesterday, you also don't understand the weather..It was raining, after some time, the sun came out again, then getting cloudy again... such a crazy weather!!! Who is responsible for this anyway?? is it a natural phenomenon???or man has also something to do with it?? It's up to you to judge!!

Today the weather is getting nice again. I woke up and the raise of the sun went in through the blinds of our window. What such a nice day!…

Searching for Easy Mortgage Quotes???

I have been working before for almost nine years in one of the Top 3 financial institution back in the Philippines. Being rotated to the different positions of the bank, I was also assigned as Loan and Discount Clerk. Not quite an easy job but I like it due to a lot of challenges and diversity in the job. This simply means that I also processed paper works regarding loans. In short, Mortgage is not a new word to me. With regards to this, I also have some knowledge of what are possibly the current market trends regarding loans and Mortgage.

You might already heard about Mortgages or even got one but don't know exactly the meaning of it. A mortgage is a method of using property weather real or personal to use as security for the performance of an obligation, usually the payment of a debt. It is also commonly used to refer to the debt secured by the Mortgage.

If you still want to know more about mortgage you can visit earth.co.uk. In this site you can learn a lot…

Political Involvement in Germany!!

I finally went voting for the first time in Germany....yes, that was yesterday..It is such a great feeling when you are exercising one of your right and freedom as a citizen to a country where you belong.!! The voting just went smoothly yesterday.

I'm just sad to know that my candidates did not made it to the top..but at least I voted the candidates whom I believed to be the right person for the position. ..just pity that they did not win!! To know more infos about the voting difference between Germany and Philippines, please visit here..

Hope you have a pleasant day today!!!

It's all about Blogging!!

Mabuhay!!
Hallo Leute (a German word which mean Hello people)!!! How it is going!! Time is really running so fast!! today is already the end of the month..Tomorrow is another month!! wow, I can't believed that this blog is already three months old. I enrolled this last November 29, 2007. I wrote my first blog last Nov. 30, '07.

I can still say, Life is a process of learning so is blogging. I admit I still need to learn about the crazy blogging world..yah, it's crazy but it's a lot of fun. Besides that I also met here a lot of wonderful and nice people.

Blogging is my life in cyberspace where I can write anything, about my ideas, thoughts, opinions, insights, outlook and even my own personal experiences. Besides that I really don't have a lot of friends here in Germany, only a few to mention.. so computer and internet and this so called blogging is now a part of my world and daily life. It is one of my bestfriend.

I just wanted to express my thanks and gratitu…

The Water

This story shed my tears...I seldom cry but this one just shed my tears..
it is quite a long story, but really very touching...Please read it too..
I wish everyone a nice weekend!!!!God bless us all!!


It was one of the hottest days of the dry season. We had
not seen rain in almost a month. The crops were dying.
Cows had stopped giving milk. The creeks and streams were
long gone back into the earth. It was a dry season that
would bankrupt several farmers before it was through.

Every day, my husband and his brothers would go about the
arduous process of trying to get water to the fields. Lately
this process had involved taking a truck to the local water
rendering plant and filling it up with water. But severe
rationing had cut everyone off. If we didn't see some rain
soon...we would lose everything.

It was on this day that I learned the true lesson of sharing
and witnessed the only miracle I have seen with my own eyes.
I was in the kitchen making lunch for my husband and his
brothers when …

Who is in Control??

a very long time forwarded email last 2005 by a friend..
hope we also got a lesson from this story..very touching!!

TRUE AWESOME STORY

A man from Norfolk, VA called a local radio station to
share this on Sept 11th, 2001. His Name was Robert
Matthews. These are his words:

"A few weeks before Sept. 11th, my wife and I found
out we were going to have our first child. She
planned a trip out to California to visit her sister.
On our way to the airport, we prayed that God would
grant my wife a safe trip and be with her.
Shortly after I said 'amen,' we both heard a loud pop
and the car shook violently. We had blown out a tire.
I replaced the tire as quickly as I could, but we
still missed her flight. Both very upset, we drove home.


I received a call from my father who was retired NYFD.
He asked what my wife's flight number was, but I
explained that we missed the flight. My father
informed me that her flight was the one that crashed
into the southern tower. I was too shocked to …

THE ESCAPE

This post is the continuation of the post I had written last Saturday Feb. 09, entitled
Warning to All Pinays Who Want to Marry Foreigners.
If you read this post you might know then what I am talking to now. ....sorry just don't find time to write it immediately...So last Friday, we finally escaped or let say I helped Ana escape from her misery (is that really misery..just can't find the exact word now, but i guess so).....I already bought our train ticket to go to a certain place here in Bavaria, the state where I also presently live..

I also prepared a travelling bag full of clothes and the basic things she need like bath soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush and a lot more (thanks also to my pinay neighbor who contributed clothes) . She don't have anything with here that day except for a pack bag full of books which she use in the German language course. Her husband stayed at home all the time and if he will see her with a big bag, he might not able to escape. Be…

Talking and Listening

This story from Kyregma just touched me. This is regarding talking and listening. This always happens in our daily life. We utter thousands of words everyday. Everyday we talk and talk, but my question is??Are we also listening???

I might not be a good listener but I tried my best to listen to somebody who is talking to me, especially if that somebody have some good thoughts, ideas, opinions or informations which I can be used. I admit, I also I argue especially if the things or matter which I believed and knew is true and reliable and worthy of arguing.

I can respect other persons' opinions, ideas or beliefs even if it doesn't confirm with what is right and correct. Besides that's how he/she believed in it. Honestly speaking, the only thing I don't like is when you are sharing or giving the right opinion or advise to a person esp. based on your experience and still that person argued and even don't believe on you. It's really quite frustrating especially if y…

Wake-Up Call

I always get-up in the morning by wake-up calls. Last Monday, I woke up by a friend's call... Tuesday by a telephone advertisement call.. Wednesday by my own alarm since I had an appointment with my dentist. Today, I woke-up by my friend from VHS Neumarkt who called me around 8:00 am.

I am very happy to wake-up everyday, facing my day to day tasks and activities. For all those who wake me up by their calls, thank you very much. I am thankful to God that I always wake up everyday, healthy and have the chance to face again the daily challenges in life.

Today's call was different because it is regarding a person who needs help very badly. My friend in VHS explain to me about it and I am also willing to help whatever help I can give. It is always a very wonderful feeling when you help someone especially help and support that comes from the heart without asking for any return. I also really admired the extra effort, help and support extended by VHS team to all Integrations Co…
