I was reading Aggie’s post regarding her kids especially the one of Martha. She has the same antics like Margaux. She is also an “ALING MARGAUX.”

She would say whenever inside the car:

To Dicky: “I want fast car daddy!”

To Me: ” Cayful Mommy!”

I think you can see what kind of driver am I!!!

When planning for any vacation, I am always very particular about the hotel we are staying in. And knowing how much effort I put into it, my aunt who stays in Australia plans to tour the US this year is asking for my help. She called me this morning requesting for my assistance to help her check some United States Hotels for their upcoming trip this august.  I actually told her to check cheaperthanhotels.com.au since it’s a site that offers the lowest rate guaranteed.  They have been providing online reservation services for more than 10 years already and have been a premier site that completed about 300 million travel transactions per year.  

She knows that when we travelled 2 years ago, I painstakingly researched on San Francisco Hotels since the bridal fair I joined in was in the city. We actually had no regret that we stayed in Marriot Hotel that time.

My aunt doesn’t want to bother so much of our relatives in California so she said that I should also check for them some Los Angeles Hotels. She plans to travel with her husband for a good of just 3 weeks stay and if they can still manage to squeeze in their schedule, I would definitely tell her to also stay in one of the New York Hotels.

A lot of people are asking as to what is my gift for my husband. I literally didn’t prepare anything actually except that I bought him already a polo in Debenhams as per his request last weekend. Besides I’m also the one paying for our hotel in Singapore next month. Aside from that, I also shopped online for him last week. I got an airclimber which I hope he would really use so he could lose weight and also a wheeled golf bag cover. The golf bag cover would be timely for him to use for the Las Vegas golf outings that him and my brother-in-laws are preparing for December. One of Dicky’s ultimate wish as well is to play golf in Rhodes Ranch Golf Club in Vegas, which is just minutes away from the fabulous strip. The course offers a unique blend of challenge and playability for golfers which Dicky has been looking in a golf course. I bet we would exceed our allowed baggage allowance since we would be bringing his whole golf club. Aside from what I heard from the news that effective July 1, baggage allowance for international travel will be reduced to 50lbs. It’s a big cut of 20lbs per luggage! Well, I hope atleast the whelled cover would make it easier for him to drag it around.

You Will Be a Cool Parent
 You seem to naturally know a lot about parenting, and you know what kids need.

You can tell when it’s time to let kids off the hook, and when it’s time to lay down the law.

While your parenting is modern and hip, it’s not over the top.

You know that there’s nothing cool about a parent who acts like a teenager… or a drill sergeant!

Ok, I’m one crazy mommy who cried this morning cause my daughter Margaux didn’t cry anymore in going to school!  Hooray!  
Tears of joy!

As we are up for a quick vacation for singapore next month, I have also been thinking if we can still afford another trip to the beach. I heard so many things about the Shangrila Hotels in Kota Kinabalu so I have been researching some more as to when is the best month to go there. Although I also heard about Playa Norte Isla Mujeres in Mexican Carribean. I love what I saw about Ixchel Beach Resort Hotel. It is an ideal place for the relaxing weekend getaway or a romantic honeymoon retreat. It offers luxurious amenities, outstanding service and a tranquil atmosphere to completely relax and enjoy a Mexican vacation. According to what I read, it is the most beautiful and most convenient location to soak in the sun and experience this amazing island. Now, it makes me more think.

I’m so thankful for a husband

Who cares for me so

And for all the love

To me that you show


You’re there for me

When I feel down

You always stand behind me

And bring me around


Thank you for standing behind me

In all that I do

I hope you’re as happy with me

As I am with you


When I’m down in the dumps     

You always bring me back

With your magical touch

You know how to make me laugh


You’re the best

I’m glad I’m your wife

I don’t know what I’d do

If you weren’t in my life


Not only, your the best husband, but the best dad as well…

Won’t you wish owning properties like the one above? Lovely! I can just lie around and be a queen in that house. It’s fully furnished with a covered pool.  There is nothing wrong in dreaming anyway. The above pictures were one of the Florida villa sales available from BardellRealEstate, which is a specialist for new and resale villas and vacation homes, retirement homes and residential property in Florida. Not to mention that this property is very near Orlando Disneyland. My kids would definitely love staying here.  Maybe we can stay here every summer, lol!  These are just my greatest dreams.

Thanks Eds for remembering me through this prayer.

Very timely as I would also like to seek and spread the word regarding the current ordeal of one of my husband’s officemates who needs to raise money of 4 Million Pesos within 3 months for the liver transplant of his daughter Yuki that should happen in Taiwan. Click here to know more about Yuki’s appeal for good health. Maybe you can also be one of her heroes. I’m sure the family would greatly appreciate whatever help you can extend. A simple prayer would actually do as well.

Dear God, we pray for the quick recovery of all the sick and the dying especially those suffering from LUPUS and CANCER. And also for the successful operation and recovery of Yuki. Amen.



To those who will be tagged, all you have to do is keep this circulating.

Even if it’s to only one person. In memory of anyone you know that has been struck down by a serious illness like Lupus or Cancer or is still living with it. 

A Candle Loses Nothing by Lighting Another Candle.

 Blogs who prayed:

1.) Eida’s Closet 2.) My Precious 3.) Just Me.. Eds 4.) Scribbles of My Life 5.)In This Game of Life 6.) YOU

Please Keep This Candle Going! There will be a cure soon. Continue to have Hope and continue to pray.

Please join us in praying:   Yen, Joy, Aggie, Alpha and Em.

How’s that? Gasoline prices soaring so high! I almost fall out of my car when I saw it this morning. Good thing my doors are locked! Lol. They said it’s even going to go up some more! Gee, I should manage my daily route itineraries efficiently so I could maximize the use of my car. Well, I gave a thought if I could just sell my car and buy something in diesel instead. The husband and I have been discussing it few months back. Maybe I should check from the auto loan calculator of up2drive. They are the very known auto loan specialist that finances all makes and models. Well, we just want to check if we can afford to sell my chevy and buy a more gas-saving car. Well as far as I know, they don’t have any hidden costs nor application fees so it would really be worth it to check a good rate from them.
