I’ve mentioned here several times that I haven’t gone back to my pre-pregnancy weight even if it’s been over a year since I gave birth. But honestly, I really did not exert that much effort. I did not exercise or at least jog in our village to lose those extra pounds. I just watch what I ate and try to lessen it as much as I can but that’s it. As I was surfing, I saw on the net what they call the Miracle burn. They said that it helps in loosing that excess baggage. I think it’s helpful especially for people who do not have time to exercise. You might want to try it too. Just log on to their site to know more.
I’m really busy now. There are several events in our office that I was tasked to handle (both official and non-official). Official would be the ISO audit on Monday (I’m really handling this one ever since and as always may mga pasaway na naman sa office na kung kelan malapit na saka maraming tanong at mga revisions); we also have 2 christmas parties; and I have a training on Tuesday and Wednesday kaya ngarag talaga!. Looks like I need to go to work on Friday and Saturday. My non-official tasks naman are the bridal shower for our 2 colleagues who’ll be getting married on December, and I’m also helping one of them in their program during the reception.
So my dear readers (kung meron man hehe!), just hang on lang for the updates. I have so many stories to tell and I’ll post them as soon as I can. :)
When my cousin got married about 5 years ago, I was one of the secondary sponsors. I remember I was teasing her because the style of our gown is a corset. I told her it’s as if she doesn’t want me to breathe. But when I wore it already, I loved it!!! These sexy corsets are really meant for women to wear to support and shape the body. That’s why at that time, I really felt sexy wearing it! :)
Our human resources department is quite busy now because there are several openings here in our company. I posted before about our business planning and some of the department heads said they needed additional manpower. So now, the recruitment group is busy looking for applicants and screening them if they meet our qualifications. They even seek out help from headhunters to make sure that they’ll find the right person fitted for the job. There are some applicants already but I’m not sure yet if they’ll be hired or not. I do hope we’ll find the right people to help us attain our goals and ensure the company’s growth.
I was not able to go to work today because I have bad cough and colds plus my head aches because Lance woke up at 4 am and did not go back to sleep anymore. (Well, actually since I have colds talaga and headache that’s what I said in the office para I can file a sick leave. Hehe! Don’t want to use my VL anymore kasi lapit na siyang maubos.) Anyway, the main reason why I took a leave from work is to pick up Lance’s passport at the city hall.
Last Nov. 10 kasi, people from DFA went to
Since I’m on leave na din, I scheduled Lance’s haircut to Kids Salon kasi I’m hoping he’ll behave the same way when he had his hair cut there before as posted here. We tried bringing him kasi to a regular salon but unfortunately, he cried kaya he did not get a decent haircut. I even have a post about it here. So when Lance woke up from his morning nap, we had lunch lang then went to Robinsons na. Lance did not behave the same way as I was hoping for. He cried his heart out while having his haircut. Deadma din niya si Barney that’s shown in their tv. Tapos mukha rin akong nagpagupit kasi yung hair nya napupunta sa kin kasi I was hugging him. He tried to stand kasi and sobrang kakaawa kaya I hugged him while ginugupitan siya. Natapos naman kami ng maluwalhati. Hehe! Sabi lang ni Paul when he saw Lance, medyo maikli daw yung hair. Hayaan na lang, hahaba din yon hehehe!
From Galleria, we went to Rockwell to meet fellow n@wie Hiromi. I bought kasi the maclaren stroller that she’s selling. Sobrang nice ni Hiromi, as in she removed pa the stroller from the box and demo pa niya lahat. She even asked her son’s nanny to accompany me to the parking area since medyo mahirap buhatin yung box.
Upon getting home, I left again and this time naman with my mom to take her to Philippine Heart Center. Di naman sa heart yung sakit ng mom ko pero good thing the doctor holds clinic there kaya nagpunta na kami. Her sched kasi was tomorrow pa eh there’s no one to accompany her tomorrow kaya we went na today. She needs to see her doctor kasi before she leaves for the states. The doctor said naman that she’s ok. May kelangan lang siyang parang maintenance na gamot para di lumala yung asthma niya. Ayun, from the hospital we went home na. Kakapagod pero at least I was able to accomplish a lot. :)

I was not able to rest last weekend for we were out for two days. Saturday was Paul’s birthday and it was also Lance’s well baby check up and immunization.
While we were waiting for his pedia at the hospital, he was just playing around and running and shouting. The assistant called him to get his weight and my God, he’s already 12.5kgs at 13 months. No wonder my back and my arms hurt whenever I carry him. Hehe! When it was finally our turn, his pedia was telling me that his growth was like that of an infant. Because it seems he’s gaining at least 1kilo per month. Lolz! She then measured his height and head circumference but I can’t remember the measurements. Hehe! But she said that it is still in proportion to his weight. She then gave Lance his immunization (it’s Hepatitis A this time) and Lance cried when he was put down the cot. But he stopped crying na when we carried him. The pedia did not give us vitamins anymore (for obvious reason! Haha) and just told us that Lance is doing great. We just continue to teach him for more developments.
From the hospital, we went straight to
Come Sunday, we all went to mass at and had breakfast after the mass. After breakfast, my mom, my sister and I left again to look for a blouse for my mom. We went to Glorietta and finally were able to buy a blouse at Woman. My sister and I were able to buy our blouses as well but from a different store. I was also able to buy a pair or pants. From Glorietta, we went to NBC tent to check on the bazaar. We were not able to buy anything from there. :( And from NBC tent, we went to Boni High Street and Market Market. And finally went home!
Like what I said, I got really tired last weekend but I love it. I get to spend time with my mom for I’m sure I’ll miss her again when she leaves on the 30th.
Most of us are trying to invest in any way to make sure that we’ll have money whenever we need one, especially for emergency cases. Some try to invest in business, some into stocks, some buy a house or a condominium unit and have it rented, while others put their money in the bank for time deposit for higher interest rates. I haven’t heard of some people who try to buy gold to preserve wealth. I don’t know why but maybe because gold is really that expensive. If I can, I’ll buy gold bars since it is real, honest money and like what they say, the best form of money the world has ever known for. Plus these items don’t depreciate but increases its value more.
I was tagged by Mhay. Thanks for the tag!
I would say that my comfort food is chocolates. I really can't last a day without eating at least one. Whether local or imported ones, I like them all. Good thing our parents always send some chocolates from abroad that's why we never ran out of supply. And whenever I buy cookies or biscuits, I make sure that they are chocolate flavored ones. I just love it!!!
* pic downloaded from wikipedia*
Can't resist to post this one too:
Shrimp is my favorite food. I love it regardless how it's cooked. But my all time favorite is the buttered-garlic shrimp. Yummy!!!
*pic from bubba gump site*
What about you Norm, Pheng, Vina and Mich, what is your comfort food?
I have a friend who’s been going out for a trip sometime next month and she’s looking for a luggage to be used for that trip. She said she needs a durable and high quality bag. I told her that Swiss Army, the makers of Swiss Army knives are known to provide high quality products. Their knives are really good and I’m sure their luggage is of good quality too. She said she’ll look for it at the mall and hope to buy one before she leaves.
We recently had our business planning for next year and for the next 5 years. The department heads presented their plans and they all looked very interesting. Our company provides telecommunications equipment, and since there are always changes or upgrades in this type of industry we need to act fast and make sure that we’re not behind with what the industry calls for.
Our president also wants the sales team to have other business development. He said that we need Sales Leads database so that they will know where to find prospective clients. We do hope we’ll be able to get more sales from these business developments.
Next year’s plans are really interesting and we hope that all of them will come true so that there will be growth for the company and rewards and bonuses to employees. :)
Happy Monday to all! As always, I don’t want to go back to work and would rather spend time at home plus I was not able to play that much with Lance. Saturday morning we went to his pedia, then went to Dampa (for it is Paul’s bday), then to MOA. Sunday, I was out the whole with my mom. I’ll post about our weekend next time.
I need to really concentrate on my work now since it’s just two weeks to go and we’ll have our ISO audit once more. I don’t want to cram and revise and review the departments’ procedures again.
I need to look for some opps though, I grabbed a few from blogitive and payu2blog has some tasks for me. Still can’t grab opps at PPP (thanks to the drop in page rank), and there’s one at smorty (though I did not grab it yet). I hope other mommy bloggers were able to get some opps too! Have a great week everyone!
So my advice to the bloggers to help protect your hard earned money is to get a checking account that has really good security against fraud. We really have to be careful and make sure that our money is secured.
It’s been thirteen months since I gave birth and I still haven’t gone back to my pre-pregnancy weight. Though I really did not exert too much effort on losing weight. I just don’t eat as much as I do when I was pregnant and that’s it! I did not even exercise or tried playing any sport. I wanted to join badminton here in our office but I also want to go home as early as I can to be with Lance so I did not join.
I envy those moms who have gone back to their shape and can fit to their old clothes as well. Some said that breastfeeding helped them but I was only able to breastfeed for 1 month so I did not lose weight from that. Some recommend a surgery called the lapband system since it’s the safest, proven weight-loss surgery available today. But unfortunately it’s not yet available here in our country.
Right now, I’m 5-10 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight. I guess I just have to seriously consider dieting so that I can get back in shape and fit in my old clothes again.
I would like to return back the award to you and to some other friends as well
Mhay – she’s not only a fellow mommy and blogger but is an officemate as well. She’s there whenever I have questions especially if it’s about being creative (wala kasi akong creativity sa katawan!) and she’s also very helpful when we were preparing for our company’s Christmas party.
Peachy – I’ve known her since wedding planning days pa lang since we’re both June brides and we have an egroup and we sometimes share notes on each other’s accomplishments at that time. We even had several EBs and we always had fun in those. She’s really nice and is always there whenever I buzz her at ym and tries to answer my questions. She’s really helpful also when I just gave birth, sharing her experiences with Joaqui since he’s a few months older than Lance.
Nice – I’ve known Nice since wedding planning days as well since we have the same designer. Though I haven’t seen her yet. I got to know her more through her site and of course when we chat at ym. Her name really describes how she is. Indeed Nice. She’s also there when I have questions especially now as I have started my own site. She even called me once here in our office just to answer my question. See! I told you she’s Nice!
Kitts – she’s also a mommy blogger and is part of the egroup where I belong. I’ve known her through again ym and has been a constant chatmate. We talk when we have a chance and if we’re both busy, we just buzz and say hi. I also haven’t met her yet but she’s really a great friend. She even volunteered doing Lance’s guest book for free when I was looking for one for Lance’s 1st birthday party! :)
Amore – I was introduced to her by fellow mommy bloggers and since then she became a friend. She set up my site and has always been a great help. She patiently answers my gazillion questions on how to go about designing the site and sometimes she’s the one who logs in to my account (whenever I don’t understand what she’s asking me to do. Lolz). Thanks ha!
Aggie – I’ve also known Aggie since wedding planning days. Like Peachy, she’s also a june bride but she was not able to attend any of our EBs (or yung time na nag attend ka, ako yung wala? Hehe). She’s really nice and is also a great friend. She’s also there when I have questions and tries to answer them as soon as she can. She’s the one who introduced me to paid blogging! :)
I mentioned before that I have a colleague who is getting married next month. She recently distributed her invitations and almost everyone here in the office were invited and are excited to attend their wedding. Both the groom and the bride are our officemates.
When she was just planning her wedding, she asked me how to go about their preparations. I told them that they first must find a church and a hotel that are still free of their chosen date and book them right away since they’ll be getting married in December and it is a peak season here for weddings. Now, it’s only a month away from their wedding and I think she’s all set. They have everything already and she even said that they have personalized wedding favors to be given to their sponsors.
I’m excited too for their wedding and I’m sure it will be a beautiful one especially since my friend was all hands in the preparation. Can’t wait for the big event!
|You Should Play the Guitar|
You're very independent - both in spirit and in the way you learn.
You can teach yourself almost anything, even if it makes your fingers bleed.
You're not really the type to sit patiently through a music lesson - or do things by the book.
It's more your style to master the fundamentals and see where they take you.
Highly creative and a bit eclectic, you need a wide range of music to play.

I was only introduced to chatting 3-4 years ago so you can say that I’m just an amateur chatter (if there’s such a term). I was glad though that I learned about it because at that time it helped in my communication with my high school friends while we were organizing our 10th year reunion. We sometimes create chat rooms to discuss our plans for the reunion. It served as our “meeting place” so that we won’t have to go out of our homes or offices just for the meeting. There we share one another’s suggestions and opinions on how to make the reunion fun and worth remembering. And there was my history of chatting. I loved it right away!
Next was when Paul was assigned to
Until now, I still am an active chatter. I go online when I get to work and as much as possible, I go online when I go home from work. I also met a lot of people through chat and they became good friends. It’s really a good avenue to communicate and make friends.
I watched Marimar last night and I can’t wait to watch it again tonight. Haha! Fan talaga!! Sergio finally learned that Marimar and his daughter are still alive. Tonight he’ll visit the hospital where Cruzita (his daughter) is confined and Corazon (the nanny) will confirm that Cruzita is his daughter. I’m not sure lang what will happen after that since they also showed that Marimar (a.k.a Bella) will enter the room.
I don’t know also what will happen to the story or how they will prolong it since I heard na it will air pa until January or February next year. For now, I can’t wait to watch it again tonight. Awww!!!
We always hear people say that growing old is one part of our lives that we cannot control. As much as we want to stay young, we will grow old eventually. Some are afraid to grow old because they don’t want to be left alone. With the fast paced world we live in, almost always, every household has both adults working. So who can the elders expect to watch over them when they’re old and sickly? Good thing that in most parts of the world, the elders are taken to a nursing home where someone can attend to their needs and can be with them always. Especially those who are bedridden, weak or have a medical condition or illness, that means they need a lot of attention from a doctor or nurse. These homes are good for them since there’s always a nurse on duty 24 hours a day. It will help both parties since the elderly will be taken cared of and the son/daughter will just have to visit him for whatever he needs.
We all know that eating fruit is extremely beneficial to our health and well-being. However, finding the time to eat enough fruit per day can be difficult due to busy lifestyles. I have found a site that has hundreds of smoothie recipes to help with this. Give it a try.
My favorite recipes are the strawberry smoothies.
This site is also looking for submissions for all fruit smoothies.

8 random facts about Toni:
- I’m a cry baby. As in I cry easily, kahit yung mga telenovela tinatamaan ako, hehehe! Or sometimes if I’m mad, I don’t fight back or shout at the person, naiiyak ako sa galit.
- I’m a sports buff. I may not play often anymore but I used to play badminton (though medyo beginner pa lang, naguguluhan pa ako sa foot works), I play volleyball from grade school to high school, and I swim (eto pinaka favorite ko, and I know all four strokes). I’m contented now to watching sports na lang on tv. I watch baseball, tennis, basketball (eto panahon pa nina Alvin Patrimonio, fanatic na ko, and sa NBA naman nina Magic Johnson). I know the rules of those games by heart. Ang OA!! Hehe!
- As early as 4, nasama na ako sa santacruzan in our province. I was the little girl holding the crown of the Reyna Elena during her coronation and after that was the civic parade. The last was when I was in high school and there was again a civic parade in our province and I was Mutya ng Yakal (I think that’s our barrio or something, can’t remember hehe!)
- The company where I am now is my first job. I’ve been here for 8 years.
- I love to dance. I used to dance in school whenever there are programs. And when I used go to the gym, I prefer attending the classes than doing my workout. I attend the taebo-kickboxing, belly dancing and the jazz/hiphop classes. Mas enjoy ako don kesa sa treadmill hehe!
- I know how to drive but using automatic shift only. Pag manual, namamatayan ako! Pero I studied driving using stick shift pero what I’m using kasi is automatic kaya I’m used to it na.
- I’m a chocolate lover! Goya man yan or ferrero papatusin ko! I love dark chocolate more.
- I’m the youngest child in our family. My siblings say I’m spoiled pero I don’t agree with them hehe! And since I’m the youngest, utusan din ako sa bahay. :)
What is the most memorable thing that your daughter/son has done for you?
Hmm.. Since Lance is only 13 months old and can hardly speak pa (kasi syempre I can't wait till I hear him say I love you mommy! :)), so my answer to this would be whenever he's trying to get my attention and chooses me over his nanny or his dad. One of my fears kasi of being a working mom is that he gets too close to his nanny, but thank God that even if he spends most of the time with his nanny, he prefers to be with me than anybody else whenever I'm at home :)
And for my question: when did you start blogging and why? I'm tagging Mhay, Mai, Kitts, Melisse and Kelly.
My friend who’s getting married this December recently bought a television for their new home. And now their looking for tv stands because the television they bought does not come with it. What they’re looking for is just the right size so it won’t occupy too much space. We’ve tried looking at appliance stores and we haven’t found one yet that suits her taste. Hopefully we can find one soon.
I remember the time when my uncle retired from the military. My sister and I were there to support him and at the same time represent our family. We were trying to catch everything through a video so that we can send it to my mom but we only captured a few. That’s because we ran out of camcorder batteries. I was so disappointed because I really wanted to capture all, from the military honors, to his speech and until the Commanding General of the Army gave him a plaque and a gift. Sad to say, I was only able to record a portion of his speech. We just have tons of pictures but no video. So now I always make it appoint to check my batteries and make sure they’re charged. I learned my lesson.
It’s still bare and needs a lot of developments pa pero it’s up and running so do link me up ok? I have links already, and to those who want to exchange links, just let me know. I’m still learning how to use wordpress plus I’m a bit busy now so it might take a while before I can update it. Here’s the link to our new site. Visit us ha! :)
Oh btw, I know I owe you guys tags and several updates. I promise to do it within the week.
I miss my blog. Haven’t blogged for the past few days since I was out for two days (Thursday and Friday) because our company had its business planning for 2008-2012, and second, I was busy at home this weekend. Haven’t really sat on the computer to check my email or update this blog. Promise, I’ll update this in a while. Hope you had a great weekend! Later na lang ulit! :)
I have a friend who’s getting married next month. When they were still starting with their plans, she asked me about my suppliers and their rates when I got married two years ago. She also asked feedbacks about certain suppliers she have in mind. She’s all set now and there are just minor details that she needs to attend to.
I remember when I was planning our own wedding. I had a hard time since Paul was out of the country then. I was the only one meeting with suppliers and attending bridal fairs, though sometimes my sister or cousin accompanies me. And since Paul was not here, I did a Wedding Website so that he will be updated with my accomplishments. It helped a lot since it’s not only Paul who sees our progress but other friends and families. I hope it’s not too late if I suggest this to my friend.
Now that the holiday season is near, most people are busy making their wish list and shopping for gifts to family, friends or relatives. Some people though are so busy that they prefer shopping online so that they won’t have to go out of their homes and just check on the items they want to buy at home. This is also the time where most businessmen seize the moment. They sell items online such as clothes, toys, books or whatever ideal gifts to give for Christmas. It could help them more if they have a shopping cart software. It’s so easy to use, it’s affordable and has free tech support whether phone, email, or online chat. It is also integrated with major banks and credit cards which are mostly preferred by online shoppers. It also has inventory control, product reports, bulk order processing and the like. They also have a feature where customers can track their orders easily. I’m sure customers will appreciate this add on feature of the seller’s site and will visit in more often. So to all online sellers, you may want to check it out.
Here in our office, some employees if not all often runs out of money even before payday. Sometimes it makes me think that maybe our company only gives a minimum salary to employees or it could also be that our employees does not budget their money properly. Some people inquire if we have Payday Loans in case they don’t have money anymore. These loans are really helpful especially if there are emergencies at home or urgent bills to pay. It is also very easy to apply since all you need to do is visit their site, provide details such as email address, home phone number, address, social security number, checking account and personal reference. Once done, they will connect you to a specific lender who will evaluate your request and may probably ask additional information to complete the approval process. The amount of money you can borrow ranges from $100-$1500 depending on your need. And then give them the date when you can pay them and that’s it. Once approved, just wait for a day and they’ll send the money to your checking account. It’s that easy. I will tell my officemates about this and hopefully it will help them with their money problem.

Just want to list down what we did for the past 4 days.
Nov 1 – my sister went to our province. Our grandparents are buried there and that’s where we usually go. I was not able to go with her since I have Lance now and Paul has work on Saturday so we decided to stay home. We just prayed for them at home. Paul and I on the other hand went to Loyola Marikina to visit his mom. It’s been 7 years since Paul’s mom passed away, di ko na siya naabutan. It’s my first time to go to Loyola on All Saints Day and wow! Ang daming tao! And ang saya sa loob. Hehe! May mga tents and food carts. Di kasi uso yon sa province kaya naaliw ako hehehe. After praying, Paul and I went home na. We did not stay there long since we left Lance and his nanny at home.
Nov 2 – we just stayed home the whole day. Nothing much to do. We just played and had bonding moments with Lance.
Nov 3 – we went to Market Market for the
Nov 4 – went to mass lang and stayed home ulit. Rest lang kami since we need to go to work na the following day.
At eto I’m at work now at mahiwagang Lunes na naman. Haayy…
Wala lang. After 4 days na bakasyon, eto at Monday na naman, back to work, back to reality! Kakatamad pero kelangan kumayod kung hindi walang pambili ng gatas at diapers si Lance. Hehe! Kaka-asar pa kanina nung papasok na ko sa office. Ang daming pasahero sa kalye at talaga namang ang hirap sumakay! Dapat nga uuwi na lang ako at magdadadala ng sasakyan kaso naisip ko mapapagod din lang ako dahil ang traffic din naman sobra! Kaya eto, late akong dumating sa office at jeep lang yung nasakyan ko. Nalanghap ko na yata lahat ng usok sa Marcos Hway sa sobrang traffic! Haayy!! Wala lang, gusto ko lang magreklamo. O siya, kelangan ko na muna magtrabaho, medyo marami-rami din tong kelangan tapusin today. Mamaya na lang ulit!
I remember back when I was still searching for a school to go to college. I took exams from 4 schools not knowing really what course I want to pursue. The courses I took from those four schools are recommendations from my parents and siblings. I ended up studying at one of the colleges here in our country known for having great background on engineering and I’m glad I went to that school.
Right now, I am again looking for a university for I plan to study again. It’s been my wish since I graduated to pursue a masters degree but I haven’t done so and it’s been almost 9 years. What I’m looking for now is a university that offers online degree programs like the one being offered by capella university. They have degree programs in business, information technology, education, human services, public health, public safety, and psychology. And they are a fully online university. I do hope I’ll find time and enough resources to pursue my goal. Wish me luck!
The little boy and the husband are both sleeping which gives me time to surf the net and grab some opps. I hope I’ll be fortunate and find a good one. Blogging has really been a great help to me. It makes me express my thoughts and feelings and of course it serves as an online journal so that I’ll remember if there are events worth remembering especially the activities of the little boy. And of course paid blogging gives so much help. The money I spent from Lance’s first birthday party all came from my earnings here in the blog. Nice di ba! So to all of us who are into paid blogging, good luck! :)
How much money do you plan to spend this upcoming holiday season?
Oh I haven't set a budget for this holiday season but I don't intend to spend too much. Just enough food to share for the family and gifts to give to them.
What was the last television show you watched, and was it good?
Marimar, it's a show here in our country and yup I think it is good, I watch it everyday.
If you had to paint the walls of your living room tomorrow, what color would you choose?
Name something clever or practical you have thought of that should be invented, but hasn't yet
I'm not on my clever mind now so I haven't thought of anything that needs to be invented. :)
List 3 things you would like to receive as gifts this upcoming holiday season
A massage, an out of the country vacation and a car! (I can dream right?) :)
1. If you were on a game show and could phone a friend for help, who would your lifelines be for sports, arts & music, literature, history and geography, and science?
--- history and geography, i'm not really good at that even when I was still in school.
2. When you need someone with muscles to help you with a task, who’s the first one you call?
--- my husband (even if he's not really muscular, lolz!)
3. When you need some creative help with ideas for a project, who’s the first person you call?
--- Vangie, my colleague. She always have that creative juices in her mind.
4. When you have a moral dilemma and need advice, on whom do you rely most?
--- my mom or when she's not around my HS friends. But I make sure that I always pray to God
5. When you need to know the best way to get somewhere, which of your directionally-gifted friends do you call upon first?
--- depends to where I'm going. My friends have their own area where they are familiar. Although most of the time, I rely on my brother for directions.
I am very particular with bathrooms; even at home I always want our bathroom to be clean. That goes the same whenever I visit a hotel, I always look into their bathrooms to see if it’s clean or the see if it has the bathroom vanities that I want. And thankfully, they meet my expectations. I wish our bathroom at home can be as nice as the ones at the hotel. But since I can’t afford to make it like that, I’ll just make sure that we have clean bathrooms. :)
