If there’s something I miss about my old job, it would be the traveling. Friends and family would label me a jetsetter after learning about the places I’ve gone to. I got to see a few sites wherever we went. I remember the times when we would go from one hotel to another as there were times that we were on the road for weeks at a time. It would be really cozy to be in a Virginia bed and breakfast. Some of these places could really rival hotels when it comes to the amenities. What’s really neat about places like these is that it’s like going back in the 1800s when you see the facades of these places. But don’t worry, most of them have internet access in case you need to get in touch with the present day.
My sister loves to travel. She’s been to several countries around the world and is planning to visit more. And whenever she goes home from a trip she tells me what happened to her trip. The adventures she encountered and the places she visited. I remember her story when she visited
She talked about
Traveling could really be fun. I do hope someday, I can travel with my sister and visit
As you know, I really love chocolates. May it be local such as goya, milo, the egg shaped chocolate or the one they call Piso, I eat them and of course the imported ones, hersheys, m&ms, cadburry, etc. Sometimes people at home hide the chocolate from me because I tend to finish all and they won’t have anything anymore. Thanks to my parent’s “box”, we get a regular supply of chocolates. :)
Anyway, I bought a chocolate this afternoon and it became my instant favorite. It’s Nips choco with crispies. I really like the m&m crispies and this one is the local version. The minute I tasted the chocolate, it became my favorite. Hehe! I think I’ll have additional item now in our grocery. I hope Paul will approve, it’s cheap lang naman eh! You might want to try it too! :)
I recently answered a survey on which Asian country should I visit. I answered several questions and upon finishing it, the result said that I should visit
As you can see from a few posts back, Lance can now stand without holding on to something. He can also walk around the house, though not on his own. And he seems to enjoy that too. So what Toni and I were discussing the other day was re-arranging the furniture to get maximum space for Lance to walk around. That means putting the sofas and cabinets all by the wall. With all the moving and the pushing, we noticed some problems with our current furniture, from torn upholstery to weak legs on the sofa prompting me to nail it together. Not that I’m complaining, but new Coaster Furniture would be nice. I especially liked their sectionals because I think it gives the most room in the center of the living room for Lance to play around.
I remember Toni’s cousin ranting about how her condo doesn’t have cbu mailboxes for the tenants. The mailman just hands the mail and bills to the security guard, the guard in turn, just hands the mail to the corresponding tenants. I could just imagine all those mail sitting in a cardboard box on the floor of the security post. I mean it’s just a one time cost, and you the tenants get privacy plus less work for the guards so I can’t understand why some condos and apartment buildings don’t have these.

Credit card companies often encounter problems when collecting payments from their clients. Some people miss out paying them and some even hide when the credit card companies call them for collection. I’m sure they are having a hard time. One solution they did was to hire a commercial collection agency to help them squeeze out payments from clients. Thanks to these agencies, companies are able to minimize balances from clients.
I gave birth a couple of months ago and since then I haven’t gone back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I’ve gone exercising, play badminton once in a while and also joined the dance aerobics session at the office so as to shed off those pounds I gained before but to no avail. Yes I lost weight already but still it’s not enough to fit in my old clothes. Then I saw hydroxycut while surfing and found it interesting. I might try it one of these days and hopefully get back to my desired weight. Wish me luck!
My uncles and some of my cousins play golf. Sad to say, I don’t play the sport. I’d like to play it too but when I tried it once and joined them when they played, I found it difficult. I just don’t get the technique on how to shoot the ball in the hole. And since my cousins are golf enthusiasts, they discuss about everything on golf, the tournaments, the players and also the different golf clubs they prefer to use. I hope I’ll learn also on how to play the sport so that I can join them next time.

Do you prefer to wash your hands in cold or warm water?
Warm water, i feel it's cleaner if I wash it with warm water :)
I haven’t had any personal updates for the past few days. I’ll just do bullet points update to make it quick.
- Had his check up last Tuesday and the doctor said he’s doing great. He now weighs 11kgs and is 78cms long. Yup he is overweight but the doctor said that his weight is proportion to his height so there’s nothing to worry
- The doctor also said that his height and weight is for a 15 month old baby, and he’s only 10months. That big no! :)
- The doctor advised us to give him iron drops because he looks pale. The doctor said this is because he grows up fast and his red blood cells can’t catch up with his growth
- At home, he’s fond of dropping objects from his crib and sometimes gets mad when you don’t pick it up. That’s also his way of getting your attention in case you’re busy with something. Hehe!
- He also tends to shout or cry when you take a toy away from him or when he wants to be carried and you won’t carry him.
- He can make at least three-four steps na by himself. And he loves to practice in his crib!
- One of the ways to pacify him when he is fussy is to bring him out of the house. Even if it’s just on the garage. Lolz!
- That’s all I can remember now, next time na lang yung iba.
- Enjoying his being a dad to Lance. Close na silang dalawa. And Lance is spoiled to him. Once he hears Lance cry or at least shout, he’s there na agad and will carry Lance. (Hmp! Hehe!)
- Still job hunting. Hoping to find one that fits his skills and interests.
- Gained weight already since he came back from
. Hehe! Taiwan
- As usual, I have so many things to do in the office. Was out on a training from Monday-Wednesday (yup worked even if it was a holiday L) on Lean Manufacturing
- I’m still trying to lose weight. I still need to shed 10lbs to go back to my pre-pregnancy weight. Hayyy…
- Looking forward na to Lance’s first birthday. Will visit divi soon!That’s about it. I’ll update you again soon! :)
I am writing this now with my sister-in-law’s brand spanking new laptop. I remember the crappy old laptop I had before. It was company-issued so I had no choice. At least I had something to use. Anyway, since it was old it was so heavy that it hurts my back; you wouldn’t be able to completely boot the machine without it being plugged in to the AC socket; and it was so slow that after pressing the power button, you had to wait for about 10 minutes for it to finish loading Windows. I’d surf around for shops that sold memory for notebooks in the hopes of upgrading my poor old laptop. I did find some stores that carried a lot of parts like HP, Compaq and Dell Memory, unfortunately my boss wanted to save on cost so I had to make do with what I had. What a real bummer! Well at least I know where to find them in case I need one.
I was sort of a geologist way back in second grade. I remember every morning when the whole class was in the corridor waiting for the daily flag ceremony I would be at the nearby field collecting rocks that seemed interesting to a seven year old boy. What interested me the most were the rocks and pebbles that seemed out of place. I remember seeing some green colored rocks (I may have thought it was kryptonite or something), also some pebbles that had several colors. Maybe if I had some rock tumblers and polishers back then, I may have picked up interest and taken up geology. Actually even today when I’m at a field, I find myself stooping down at the ground checking out the rocks. Besides, I may be lucky enough to spot some loose change that somebody dropped.
We’re out hunting for some new furniture. We have a sofa with a tear on it (and Lance constantly tries to make the tear bigger) and a bed frame that creaks at the slightest movement. Aside from these, we would soon need new furniture for Lance to use as he is growing up real quick and bookshelves for all our books here. It’s such a shame to stow away books in basements and storage areas, don’t you think? It’s just good to know there are a lot of discount furniture stores out there.
Anyway, if you know anyone who wants to buy a second-hand ipod, mine is still available. It’s a pink 6gb ipod mini, it has a crystal case and ac charger. :)

51-70: When it comes to understanding human emotions, you'd have better luck understanding Chinese.
71-90: You've got more emotional intelligence than the average frat boy. Barely.
91-110: You're average. It's easy to predict how you'll react to things. But anyone could have guessed that.
111-130: You usually have it going on emotionally, but roadblocks tend to land you on your butt.
131-150: You are remarkable when it comes to relating with others. Only the biggest losers get under your skin.
150+: Two possibilities - you've either out "Dr. Phil-ed" Dr. Phil... or you're a dirty liar.

Name something that made you smile this week
A lot, but most of them were because of Lance. Especially when he does his gigolo dance. :)
What do you do to cool off when the water is hot and humid?
I go to our room and turn on the aircon.
You receive $1000 in the mail with a letter that says you can only use the money to redecorate one room in your home. Which room do you pick, and what do you buy to spruce it up?
Our bedroom, to make it more kid friendly. Since we share the room with our 10 month old son, I'd like our room to have more stuff for babies.

And before I started watching season 2 of prison break, I finished watching season 3 of grey’s anatomy first. It’s a good show too. It makes me appreciate the works of the surgeons, doctors and nurses. I hope I’ll be able to watch season 4 na.
Now I’m thinking if I’m going to watch Heroes too. I heard good reviews about the show and I also have a copy na of season 1 but I haven’t started watching it. If I will watch it, looks like I’ll be having sleepless nights again. Hehe!
