I hope one day I can finish my Australian vacation layouts so I can have them printed. I can't beleive that it as so cheap to have it printed over at Artscow. I am so happy I have found friends through digital scrapbooking, gosh my co-Bebots (as we call each other) are so very generous in sharing tips on where to have our layouts printed at a much cheaper price. Hmm i need to gear up myself soon so I can finish a 20 pages photobook for myself.
Digital Scrapbooking is so much fun, if you haven't tried it yet you've got to. You just need to be patient in order to finish a layout that usually takes hours. If you are not patient, forget it haha.
You can see some of my digi - layouts here and here is my SCRAPS & SHOTS blog, there are some freebies there.
Here's how to activate G-mail Themes: (Gmail themes are NOT stationeries)

* One in eight women or 12.6% of all women will get breast cancer in her lifetime.
* Breast cancer risk increases with age and every woman is at risk.
* Every 13 minutes a woman dies of breast cancer.
* Seventy-seven percent of women with breast cancer are over 50.
* Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women between the ages of 15 and 54, and the second cause of cancer death in women 55 to 74.
* Risks for breast cancer include a family history, atypical hyperplasia, early menstruation (before age 12), late menopause (after age 55), current use or use in the last ten years of oral contraceptives, and daily consumption of alcohol.
* Early detection of breast cancer, through monthly breast self-exam and particularly yearly mammography after age 40, offers the best chance for survival.

Anyway, I noticed that the older kid (about 5 yrs. old) is playing with the glass door, opening and closing it and sometimes he'd go in and out of the shop. I asked the guardian to tell the boy not to do that. He stopped for a while and did something else, lay on the floor, teased his smaller brother that he made it cry and other stuff, the usual playful and bored kid. He is just unstoppable, I was worried bec. my other customers are already being distracted. I can also see the grandma is a bit ashamed and was talking to the kid with a soft voice.
What is so distracting is that I saw the lil boy got angry at his granny and even got his slippers and smack his grandma on her buttocks with matching angry voice. I was shocked, he did it again the 2nd time and that was the time, I told the boy it was bad and he should not do that to his grandma. Gosh, the grandma did not reacted but it seems she is tolerating this attitude of the boy.
What happened to the kids these days? If my niece or nephew will do that to my mom or to me, for sure they'll get a dose of their own medicine. How do you discipline a child like that? What could be the reason the child acted like that? I am guessing, that the child lacks attention or discipline from her guardians (btw the kid's mom is working overseas). Please share your insights about this please.
Just in case you want to purchase one, it's definitely a good buy. You just need to know what size you want to buy bec. there are many sizes and designs of Crumpler bags.

Those hearts are actually made of Cotton Candies (as you can see it's kinda melting hehe) shaped into hearts by my teenage niece. They asked me to take photo of it bec. they are goin' to put it on their Friendster accounts and thought of sharing it here. Join us at Wordless Wednesday.

My bestfriend RACE texted me if I am going so she came along so I decided to treat her for lunch. There are many restos around the Greenhills area but we decided to eat at Las Paellas Cafe. I had a yummy baby back ribs while Race had the Porkchop Andaluz. We just shared a mango cake as dessert and a bottomless iced tea. It was a delicious lunch, took some photos and even asked the waiter to take a pic of us hahaha.
I also bought a blouse (that I wore on my b-day), a blouse, CDR/DVDRs, and oh boy bought my 6 Million Dollar Crumpler Camera bag too. Actually I wanted something else (a cheaper one ) but gosh when I saw that Crumpler bag, I never let it go! lol. So now I have a new cam bag (i will share the pics later). Oh well.... my bes and I had a great time shopping, it is seldom that we go out and I am happy that she went out with me last Satuday.

I had my color dyed to dark brown (almost black) covering all the brownish color that I had before as well as my gray hairs. Aside from that I also had a hair spa which is relaxing, love the little massage on my body. I did not have my hair cut since I don't want it to be murdered again hehehe. I already cut my own hair last week using the thinning scissor that I bought at Watson's. That's it, just had a relaxing morning at the salon. No pics to share, coz there's really nothing major changes.

She also asked me if I knew the death of our dear friend Lucy in April. They tried to reach me but like I said I was out of the country. I was so shocked and in disbelief when I saw it on text so I immediately called her to know the real story. It turned out that she died from an imparction (heart attack) and could not be revived anymore.
What makes me sad is that I was in Australia when that happened and I wasn't able to see her for the last time. It is giving me goosebumps everytime I think of it. What makes me more sad is that it's been many years that we have not seen each other and now I learned that she is gone already. I offered a small prayer and lighted a candle this morning in our grotto.
"To my dear friend Lucy, sorry for I have not visited you. I am offering you these candles and may you rest in peace and be with the Lord"

All I wanted was an eyeglass that I can only use in front of my pc and just for reading so she had mine customized for that. Right now, I am using it already and I have no complaints so far and it is far more affordable than my old progressive glass that I had last year. I showed it to my niece and I was laughing bec. she said that I looked like a doctor. hahaha.
I also bought some new Christmas decors for our Christmas tree bec. it's been decades now since I bought a new one. I will show pics later.

Jen: Ano po yon?" (Can I help you?)
Woman: Ammmm.. Are the old folks (man & woman) still there?
Jen: Huh? What old folks? Who are you looking for? (I was trying to let them say the name)
Woman: Don't get mad ok? I was just looking for my relative who lives here and I can't remember their names. What are their names?
Jen: I"f you are talking about my grandma and grandpa ,,.. ohhhh they are long gone." (I stated the name of my granny)
Woman: Oh yeah that's it Ka ____, (she said the name that I said). What is the surname again?
Jen: (I was already suspicious of them bec. if they are my distant relatives, then they should have known the names or even the surnames but answered back: "Oh (i said the surname) po"
Woman: "Hmmm that's it bec. we are so and so"
(mentioning their surnames and my grandma's surname to make it appear that we are really relatives.. "If they alreay dead, can I talk to their sons/daughters?"
Jen: Ohhh they are not here actually, I said
Woman: (Being persistent) "Can I just at least talk to anyone? Are you related to the old folks?
Jen: Yes, why po?
Woman: A relative of ours died eh.
Jen: Oh can I have his name? Can you write it down so I can tell my mom & aunt about it.?
Woman: Getting somewhat irritated "Oh he is goin to be buried tomorrow eh"
Jen: Oh, I see, but at least I can tell them the name and the place where he is buried.
The woman, seemed restless and really insist to talking to my mom (who is not really here that time) or my aunt, whom I don't want to call in their house bec. I know this is going to be another modus operandi where they will insist that they are your realtives and in turn they will ask for money.
Like I said if they truly are our relatives they will not ask for the name and even the surname of my old folks.. right? And they would really give the name of the dead and their place. In this case they didn't, so I presumed they will just trick us like what happened to my aunt long time ago. Gosh these days, there are so many people who'd fool someone just to have money.
Anyway, the 2 woman left with sad look on their faces, or should I say "nanghihinayang" that they wasn't able to get through me. I am just being cautious and careful, but if they are truly are saying the truth then I am sorry. I told this to my mom and others and they said it looks a bogus one.
Gosh.... anyway happy weekend eveyrone, I'm off now to have lunch then later on I'll go to the mall
