Waiting for Summer

One more month to go but the students are already excited on their long vacation. To make their idle time useful and worthy, kids, teenagers or even those young at heart are encouraged to be enrolled in swimming, karate lessons, voice lessons, ballet, drawing and painting and of course different sports activities like basketball, badminton and skating. Haven’t been attempted figure skating but I really wanted to try it. I really love watching couples on an ice dancing, in 2001 a friend bought her TD Banknorth Garden Tickets for the US Figure Skating Championship. I bet its all worth it and enjoyed the show.

I’m also interested in enrolling at Center for Pop Music on voice lessons this summer together with Makoy. Who knows, there’s still a better chance for me to be like my idol Mariah Carey who’s having a show on February 27 so better get your Caesars Palace Tickets now. If you really have more spare money why not try purchasing Garth Brooks Tickets too. I'd better start practicing on our Wow Magic Sing every weekend.

Driving lessons

I was enrolled at A1 driving school for 15 hour session. This afternoon was my 4th day and at the same time my 8th to 10th hour. I was supposed to be scheduled for a 3 hour driving lesson today but unfortunately after driving within the vicinity of Caloocan and Valenzuela on my first hour, the bus hit the car (Toyota Vios) I'm driving. The incident happened near the Caloocan police station so my instructor arrange for the police report, that took him more than an hour to finish, we decided to re scheduled my driving lessons.

I did not get nervous because I know it's not my fault, but I screamed when I felt something bumped our back.

Joke Time

According to doctors we use only 4 muscles to smile, but when we frown we use 64 muscles-16 times more. So SMILE, it conserves energy.

Smiling Relieves Stress
Stress can really show up in our faces. Smiling helps to prevent us from looking tired, worn down, and overwhelmed. When you are stressed, take time to put on a smile. The stress should be reduced and you'll be better able to take action.
Kung gusto nyo ring mangiti tulad ko, pakibasa ang mga sumusunod na forwarded jokes (PAUNAWA:Pasintabi po sa mga kababayan ni Manny, katuwaan lang po ito). Have a nice weekend!

Ash Wednesday

zwani.com myspace graphic comments

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, day of obligation for all Catholics to hear Mass.
Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent and occurs forty-six days (forty days not counting Sundays) before Easter. It is a moveable feast, falling on a different date each year because it is dependent on the date of Easter. It can occur as early as 4 February or as late as 10 March.

Ash Wednesday gets its name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of the faithful as a sign of repentance. The ashes used are gathered after the Palm Crosses from the previous year's Palm Sunday are burned. In the liturgical practice of some churches, the ashes are mixed with the Oil of the Catechumens (one of the sacred oils used to anoint those about to be baptized), though some churches use ordinary oil. This paste is used by the minister who presides at the service to make the sign of the cross, first upon his or her own forehead and then on those of congregants. The minister recites the words: "Remember (O man) that you are dust, and to dust you shall return", or "Repent, and believe the Gospel."

Its V-Day!

RED is the color of Valentines Day. But what if one is not in love or not committed at all? Any tips for the right color to wear?
zwani.com myspace graphic comments
Wear WHITE if you are Single and good looking

Wear GRAY if you are not interested in relationships/commitments

Wear RED if you are COMMITED AND HAPPY

Wear BROWN if you are COMMITTED BUT YOU WANT OUT

Wear BLUE if you are IN LOVE WITH YOUR FRIEND/LIKE SOMEONE IN THE OFFICE

Wear YELLOW if you are DATING/IN LOVE BUT NOT IN A RELATIONSHIP

Wear GREEN if you are in a 3RD PARTY RELATIONSHIP

Wear BLACK if you are BROKENHEARTED

Wear STRIPES if you have MORE THAN ONE RELATIONSHIP

Wear PINK if you are in SAME SEX RELATIONSHIP

Wear ORANGE if you DIDN’T HAVE ANY RELATIONSHIP SINCE BIRTH

So, are you decided what color to wear on a V-day? I will wear YELLOW....because that's the color motif on the family day from my boys' school!

Who Is Telling The Truth?

I just want to share this wonderful and inspiring article of Bo Sanchez...please read on.....

One day, a young guy and a young girl fell in love.
But the guy came from a poor family. The girl’s parents weren’t too happy.
So the young man decided not only to court the girl but to court her parents as well. In time, the parents saw that he was a good man and was worthy of their daughter’s hand.
But there was another problem: The man was a soldier. Soon, war broke out and he was being sent overseas for a year.
The week before he left, the man knelt on his knee and asked his lady love, “Will you marry me?” She wiped a tear, said yes, and they were engaged. They agreed that when he got back in one year, they would get married.
But tragedy struck. A few days after he left, the girl had a major vehicular accident. It was a head-on collision.
When she woke up in the hospital, she saw her father and mother crying. Immediately, she knew there was something wrong.
She later found out that she suffered brain injury. The part of her brain that controlled her face muscles was damaged. Her once lovely face was now disfigured. She cried as she saw herself in the mirror. “Yesterday, I was beautiful. Today, I’m a monster.” Her body was also covered with so many ugly wounds.
Right there and then, she decided to release her fiancĂ© from their promise. She knew he wouldn’t want her anymore. She would forget about him and never see him again.
For one year, the soldier wrote many letters—but she wouldn’t answer. He phoned her many times but she wouldn’t return her calls.
But after one year, the mother walked into her room and announced, “He’s back from the war.”
The girl shouted, “No! Please don’t tell him about me. Don’t tell him I’m here!”
The mother said, “He’s getting married,” and handed her a wedding invitation.
The girl’s heart sank. She knew she still loved him—but she had to forget him now.
With great sadness, she opened the wedding invitation.

And then she saw her name on it!

Confused, she asked, “What is this?”

That was when the young man entered her room with a bouquet of flowers. He knelt beside her and asked, “Will you marry me?”

The girl covered her face with her hands and said, “I’m ugly!”

The man said, “Without your permission, your mother sent me your photos. When I saw your photos, I realized that nothing has changed. You’re still the person I fell in love. You’re still as beautiful as ever. Because I love you!”

This Story Is A Parable Of Your Life

Friend, the girl believed she was ugly.

The man believed she was beautiful.

Who is telling the truth?

Simple answer: The man who loved.

You may be like that woman. You feel you’re disfigured by your failures. Marred by your mistakes. You feel you live an ugly life. But God says you’re beautiful! Because He loves you.

He doesn’t look at your mistakes. He doesn’t look at your past. He looks at the original beauty He created in you—and the glorious beauty of your future.

I encourage you to speak words of truth.

Dethrone the lies in your mind.

Say, “I’m beautiful.” Say, “I’m a wonderful person.” Say, “I have a great future.” Say, “I’m anointed. I’m strong. I’m blessed.”

Use your words to create your desired reality.

May your dreams come true,

Bo Sanchez

Decades

Please get a copy of Papa Piolo's newest album"Decades", featuring the carrier single "Babe".

Babe I'm leavin'
I must be on my way
The time is drawing near
My train is going
I see it in your eyes
The love, the need, your tears
But I'll be lonely without you
And I'll need your love to see me through
So please believe me
My heart is in your hands
And I'll be missing you

'Cause you know it's you babe
Whenever I get weary
And I've had enough
Feel like giving up
You know it's you babe
Givin' me the courage
And the strength I need
Please believe that it's true
Babe, I love you

You know it's you babe
Whenever I get weary
And I've had enough
Feel like giving up
You know it's you babe
Givin' me the courage
And the strength I need
Please believe that it's true
Babe, I love you

Babe, I'm leavin'
I'll say it once again
And somehow try to smile
I know the feeling we're tryin' to forget
If only for a while
'Cause I'll be lonely without you
And I'll need your love to see me through
Please believe me
My heart is in your hands
'Cause I'll be missing you
Babe, I love you
Babe, I love you
Ooo-oo-oo-oo, babe

Reviews Inc.

Another informative site from a very passionate blogger (aka “blogging addict “),Reviews Inc. True to her tagline, “Where Reviewing is not a job, it’s a passion”, because her reviews are very informative and with credibility and aside from this site, the author has seven more other famous blogs in different categories of course. I thought of this review site as different from the author’s other sites because the theme is in more professional level. The layout is very simple too, but elegant! The badges are well organized and the overall impact? It is very clean and very easy to navigate.

It is easy to tell that the author is a mother, because of her numerous posts about Johnson’s. I bet 9 out of ten mothers are using Johnson’s products. I also received the limited edition ofJohnson’s Body Care gift pack and I agree with her post on the 24 Hour Lasting Moisture Body Lotion. We really need to have a lasting body moisturizer because of our climate here in the Philippines. I also let my kids use Johnson’s baby shampoo, baby soap and baby powder.

The author just celebrated her birthday last Monday February 1, and for sure her door is still open for more birthday gifts! (Paging Johnson’s!) Belated Happy Birthday my dear Pehpot! I will surely visit her site more often.

Abi's Birthday

Last Saturday, we attended Klaire Abigail's Ist birthday party at the very sosi place, Acropolis Clubhouse. I told my kids that the party was cancelled because Jojo's car will be used by his brother, fortunately he borrowed from another friend a car (a brand new altis!). The kids loved the ice cream station, they hardly eat the main course. Since the photo booth was just beside our table, we took 4 souvenir shots! Thanks Mareng Nini!

Fascinated with WAHMaholic

It’s really fun when you are blog hopping, you can see different style of templates, I believe that there’s really a great impact once your layout is impressive. Somehow, the layout really reflects the identity of the author. I really admired the layout of Kaye, the famous author of WAHMaholic. It’s a must to navigate on the whole site, the badges, links , everything is well organized and clean, and of course her posts are well written too.

I tried changing my template before, unfortunately I cannot do it alone. I was really fascinated when Kaye did the makeover on one of Niko’s blog. I also saw Anna Barons’ new header, very simple and elegant. I thought I have seen the best, but wait! What I like best was her fine work of art on Mommy Mel's coolest layout, very superb! Well, I guess one quality that fits their Marce Club is to be exceptionally brilliant! Visit Kaye's site and find out for yourself how great this blogger is.

Opps! Don't forget to join the much awaited contest that is giving away $500, of course brought to us by the two brilliant minds of Kaye and Pehpot! To qualify, just blog about the contest (including the badge and the banner) and review the major sponsors with 3 back links. Of course we all want to claim the first prize so let’s start the ball rolling and begin writing the reviews to get a front load points before the deadline ends on Feb 28, 2010.
