A Very Short Visit
Their Pinas visit is just the final leg of their Asian business tour and I heard that they wish to come back and see more of the places.I'm willing to be their chaperone and guide if they still want me to be with them soon.
I attended our College’s 24th Alumni Homecoming on Oct. 20, 2012 and we all had a blast. Even though attendees were only around 30, yet it’s a night filled with fun and laughter. This is our very 1st reunion after graduating from college and seeing my other batchmates and classmates is just awesome. I could not even recognized some of the faces anymore.
I’m just so glad that I have attended and relieved all the memories that we had during our college days especially the times when we use to have our duties on different hospitals.
One of our college professor was even present that night so it was more special. I wish that next year on our 25th Silver, more will attend.
The night is filled with dancing, singing, eating, chatting and games.

Mom Turns 80
My dearest mom turns 80 on October 18th and we are thankful to the Lord that she is still healthy despite her HB and gallstones. Initially, we really wanted to give a big party for her just like what we did when she turned 75 but mom didn’t want it anymore. She just wants a more simple party for our family alone.
Plans changed all the time, at first she wanted to just eat at a restaurant but she changed her mind again. So, we just cooked some bbq (pork and fish), spaghetti, I made fruit salad and ordered cake for her. Sister Joy and her family called from Sydney called to greet my mom and that completed the celebration.
I’m just wishing good health for my mom and more years to spend with us.

The Benefits of a Low Calorie Diet
Easy to Use Following a low calorie diet is very easy to do. You simply count the number of calories you consume in one day. Some people find it easier to use a diary or spreadsheet to keep track of their calorie intake every day. There are also websites you can find online that allow you to monitor calories so you can stay on target. Most of these are loaded with the most commonly eaten foods for ease of use. Low calorie diets don’t restrict any specific foods. If the number of calories in something fits into the calorie allowance, you can eat it. This makes the diet much easier to stick to because you can eat anything you want.
Weight Loss Everyone knows that if you consume fewer calories than what your body burns, your body will have to use stored fat. When the body stores fast, you lose weight. By following a low calorie diet, you can learn how to eat below your metabolic rate and anything else that you do is going to result in losing weight because of the calories being burned. There are many great low calorie lunch ideas available from the Sweeter Life Club to get you off to a good start.

I always make it a point to have an afternoon or sometimes evening walk with my dog Sophie. She already knows when she’s going out when I already changed my house dress to something decent clothes to go outside. She’s pretty smart and could already tell if we’re going out.
It’s not everyday though that we get to go out because sometimes I became too busy or lazy to dress up and go out of the house. However, when we do go out, I made it a point to let her sniff and leave her mark everywhere she wants.
Dogs are very smart and I learned that when they sniff other dog’s urine they can already know the sex and identity of that dog. Amazing!

What Happened Smart Bro?
I switched back and forth to Firefox and Chrome and even restarted and shutdown my computer with hopes of fixing the problem. It got worst because Facebook and Twitter are the only sites that I can access. Boo.!! I have so many things to do and blog but my internet server is not cooperating.
I asked my friends who are also using Smart Bro and they are having the same problem just like me. I didn’t bother calling Smart’s technical service because I’m sure they will be flooded with lots of complains.
Oh dear.. I know glitches can happen but I hope it will not be for long because I have so many things to do.
Thank goodness, Smart Bro connection is back this morning!

Aches and Pains.. Boo!
A friend suggested an arm exercise for those with tendonitis or carpal tunnel syndrome and she gave me the Youtube link of the exercise. I followed the exercised for couple of times and it helped lessen the pain and pressure in my arm. I also rested my arms for half day and it worked.
Now that my arm is kinda healed another pain appeared. My waist and legs are aching and I think my wrong seating and sleeping may have contributed to the pain. I think I need to reconsider if I should buy a memory foam mattress because it might also help. Actually, I already have a memory foam pillow that I use when my shoulders and neck are aching.
In the meantime, I just bought a Salonpas, medicated patch this morning and I have to put it hoping the pain will go away. I guess when we are getting old, pains and aches always come with it.

I'm already looking forward in seeing my college classmates come Oct 20th. It will be our 24th year after we have graduated from Alma Mater. I may not have gone to a big and popular college but still I’m proud to have graduated as a Medical Technologist even though I have a different career now.
I’m just so thankful to our classmate who is already working in Canada for he has gathered us on Facebook via our forum. Seeing all my former classmates on Facebook makes me so excited to see them in person soon.
Sadly, I’m not attending meeting regarding our upcoming reunion but I gave my little contribution by making our T-shirt and invitation designs that they have chosen. Can’t wait to attend soon.

Her Swan Origami
“Look, tita, I made a swan!” that’s what my 9 yr-old niece shouted at me one Sunday afternoon.
I saw her busy watching Youtube that day and didn’t realized that she’s trying to watch an origami tutorials. That’s the reason why I heard her asking for some scratch papers from her mom. I’m just so happy that she’s creating some stuff when she feels like being creative and one of the best place where she can get some ideas is online.
Most of the times she’s drawing or doodling on papers and it’s also one of her hobbies. Maybe one day she’ll also play metal puzzle for fun just like this butterfly disentanglement puzzle. I am sure this kind of puzzle can really stimulate her brain and test her patience.
I'm just so happy that I'm earning some $ on my digi-designing and that really helps. I've been a member and a designer at arstcow.com for couple of years now and I'm so happy that I have found it. I still need to make some more templates soon because October and November are the months where most orders are placed so I need to be ahead of other designers so I can earn more.
My mom has started the re-painting of our computer shop the other day. I'm not quite sure why on this rainy season she has thought of repainting and not on summer next year. Mom also has lots of projects to be done, I will not wonder if one day he'll ask our helper to buy more wood, nails or even a c clamp that they can use to make cabinets or whatever mom likes.
Sophie is sleeping on the couch right now. Actually, she's outside but I heard her cry earlier and wanted to go inside the house. It appears she's afraid of something., I wonder why. I guess she just wants to play and be with me.. Ahhh.
Nephew is watching the round one of the UAAP finals between Ateneo vs UST and he's just so excited. I wonder who'll win this season.
Just finished eating 2 banana turon that I cooked earlier. Oh boy, it was delicious and I just had my sugar overload again.
I have changed my schedule tremendously just to have more time for my blogging career. I'm just so thankful to all the advertisers that are contacting me to make a review of their products or services. I'm trying my very best to write a nice one and make the adv. happy.
