December 23rd we have our flight from Tampa, Florida to New York City. Tampa airport have no weather or plane related problem. We checked in online (it's easier), we just checked in our luggage and we're ready to board.
Time to board, we were so amazed to find out that we have a first class seats. Honestly, I haven't been in a first class flight. Ray didn't know how we got our seats. We can't complain it's an upgrade baby! Let's enjoy it ;). Of course the service is very different. We have our dinner (a good dinner with fruits and dessert). Ray and I have a scrabble tournament and our score is Ray - 12; Me - 11(yea I am losing 1 gamebut of course I already beat him 15-8 in the last tournament, our rule is whoever wins the first fifteen will win). We brought our scrabble game so we won't be bored while flying.
After more or less 2 and half hours the captain announced that we have to wait for traffic but a lil bit later we finally landed safely and hurried to our connecting flight to New York only to find out that it was canceled!!! The reason was weather related, oh crap, are we gonna sleep in the airport??? Hope not besides that it's uncomfortable it's freezing too and i didn't have my coat thinking i don't need it until we land in NYC.
We asked the attendant and told us to go to specific gate. Guess what, They gave us Hotel at the Marriot Courtyard in Detroit and a meal and a ride from and to the airport. It's nice of them huh. By the way it the Northwest airlines (you can check them out at www.nwa.com).
We had our flight the next day and landed safely. We got our car and went to heart of the BIG APPLE.
Watch out for our coming pictures from our trip...

December 23rd we have our flight from Tampa, Florida to New York City. Tampa airport have no weather or plane related problem. We checked in online (it's easier), we just checked in our luggage and we're ready to board.
In preparation for our Christmas and New Year trip to North East, I did the online class for the Basic Driver Improvement course so there's NO points will be assessed on my driver's license. I passed and got my certification right away and mail it the specified county where the wreck happened.
We are super busy that we don't have enough time to pack and take care of our pets especially my 3 dogs. I already made all the reservation for them in a kennel so all I have to do is drop them off. Worst thing about it, I have to drop them near where my accident happened but No big deal I am over it ;) past is Past and have to let it go.
Sunday is our Flight to New York City.

Yup, i was in a car crash recently and the worst thing, the police found me at fault :( . It was depressing but what can i do cry a thousand river? Pout in the corner? Nope not in my vocabulary. I didn't plead guilty at scene because I think it wasn't my fault but my husband and I asked opinions to people who knew and work in the court and even talked to the police and all they told us, I better do the "Basic Driver Improvement Course" to take off the 3 points in my record and avoid the hassle in court which I can easily be found guilty!!!
Effects of my accident wasn't quite bad at time the accident happened because i was able to drive the car back but after that night i wasn't brave enough to drive for at least 2 weeks :( .
Now it's getting better, I am starting to hold the steering wheel again and of course a lot cautious. I surely don't want to be involved in another accident.
People who drive out there be very careful driving.....Accidents can happen in a blink of an eye.
Take care and God Bless

As days go by, a lot of fragrances emerges some smells okay some smells great and some just simply irresistible. To name a few Chanel, Calvin Klein, Dior, Fendi, Guess, Ralph Lauren, Dolce and Gabbana etcetera. When it comes to fragrances you have to decide which one to get, either Eau de toilette (cheaper), Eau de parfum which the one i like personally because it last longer but it cost you more.

Yup, I was very lucky last night when the cop pulled me over for driving a car with trailer that the tail light is not working and one of the headlight is not working. The light were all working as long as i have my brights on for the headlight and as long as I am riding the brake for the tail light ;( . I drove it from
When luck strike it's unstoppable!
So much fun. It's all about getting crazy and be in the wildest that you been wanting to be!
yesterday i got bored and took off to the mall just to unwind. I need to go there anyway because I'm out of my favorite parfum CHANEL Chance. Women always tend to buy things that's not even in the list and just buy from out of nowhere just because it's cute even though you don't need it yet. The main thing yesterday was i got my favorite scent and when I checked out Victoria Secret and decided to grab 2 Infinity Edge bra because it's simply irresistible and I go ahead and pay for it before I see some other cute stuff. I used my birthday card from VS and pay the rest. I have no idea that I was only paying 1 of them , I didn't even look how much i was paying I just swipe my card and left. When I got home I noticed it and Thanks to VS for a free Infinity Edge bra.
I finally have time to update my profile. I've been super busy the past month because we are trying to figure new things out. I need to take out the music i had in my profile because the company that's been hosting our company websites said that it's illegal to upload songs. They already deleted the directory so my music box doesn't work anymore and no sense of keeping it if it doesn't work. I might figure something else, we'll see.
My life is busier than ever so i have my blog late. I'm writing this not to make an impression but to remind myself of the dates and what happened on that particular dates. If you have nothing to do you can read, after all you have nothing to lose, right?

Our 20 days of vacation, was pretty unbelievable. I should say nothing is new since i came from the
Pictures are in my main profile and the rest will be posted on my personal website as soon as it's done and i can find time upload it all.
Oops talking to much here...i have to go back on my cleaning!!!
I been to Andrea Faith's Christening yesterday and it went smoothly.
It's been very busy in here between reservations for our trip and for our dogs and making the store organize so we will not leave it in whole file of mess. I've been shopping around for boarding places for Rocky and Bullwinkle to save some dollars because they have to stay in for 20 days and paying them $$/day is a torture! I finally found one in
I already have a little bit of an idea how it's gonna be because I've watch Samantha Brown (I love her job, she's been everywhere including Europe and now she's doing South America) from travel channel most if not all of her "Girl meets Hawaii" and shows that got something to do with Hawaii. Honestly, it hasn't kicked in my mind that we finally going to
Our weekend was spent in
I brought her to the vet today and she's healthy but we have to be careful because she got a soft spot in her head just like a baby.
I am fascinated and an avid fan of this TV show. Man, Criss Angel is the best magician alive! Seriously I am very amused and intrigued how he can do tricks and magics that will blow your mind if you try to figure it out. It's unbelievable and freakin' crazy! Believe it or not we are recording every episode of it on our DVR to make sure we are not missing anything! I am a huge fan. I can just watch him all day and never get sick of him. I am a so interested of magics and tricks ever since when i was a kid. My brothers always do tricks on me :)
Let me start with the disaster Friday night, I was so excited frying the fish and suddenly when i flip it the oil splattered on my right arm.
Saturday morning we drove down
Monday is for our
Honestly, that was the worthless trip we've ever had :( but we can't have all the good times. We had fun golfing anyway. We just have to look and appreciate the better side.
I visited my friend Zeny yesterday in
She is only 5 weeks and she looks a lot bigger than she should!!! Be a good girl sweetie...
I am so disappointed with today's Game 6 of the best of Seven Series between Phoenix Suns versus San Antonio Spurs. I am cheering for the Suns and tonight they lost 114-106 and booted out for good. Both teams got very physical in this series that led to 3 players suspension. I've been following the Suns but they better do a good job next year. I don't think I'll be as excited in the finals if my favorite teams Suns vs Pistons (now it's all in my dreams) won't be in it(obviously it's not going to happen now that the Suns is already out!!!). I won't spend too much of my time watching the western conference semifinals but definitely watch the eastern for the Detroit Pistons. Go Pistons Go!!! Basketball game is pretty unpredictable but I surely enjoyed watching it. Now that the Detroit Pistons is still in the league good luck for them. Hopefully they'll win again in the finals. Just hoping I can watch 1 of the Phoenix Suns and the Miami Heat games next year, that would add some excitement and I would definitely save money and look forward for the game. Hmmmm just got disappointed and can't sleep right yet.
I will start Thursday, I drove to
Saturday was for our pets (mainly for our dogs, Rocky and Bullwinkle and a our Bird Daisy). We went to
Sunday we celebrated mother's day and Kristina's Birthday(niece) at his sister Denise's house. The traditional family get together.
Spring time in
Friday we went to
We went to a club in down town Orlando it was fun and Ray got drunk. I even let him walk if he can pass if got pulled over by cops and he is too drunk. So I have to drive back to
We missed both water parks, we had our yearly pass t2 years ago and didn't get last year because we are busy going to other States, now that we're almost done with it, we have more time and less money of course just to drive around Florida.
We haven't really plan what to do last weekend, so Saturday we went to a driving range in Celebration for me to practice how to swing so we can play golf together, then after that we went to Disney Quest in Downtown Disney in Down Town Disney, it was fun and I keep laughing because you'll see people playing and look like an idiot (where can you see people paddling in a boat without water??). A lot of virtual games and we even design our own roller coaster and it was rate 4 out of 5 (it was pretty scary). All I'm excited about is to beat the high score (54) in basketball I got 47 I almost beat it but better luck next time.
We went to a club at night. This time I get drunk ;) We met our friend from Clermont and it was a whole lot of fun.
Sunday was our beach time. We decided to go to Typhoon Lagoon. I love going in there. Enjoying the rides or just be in the raft that goes around is always been fun. We have to go home earlier because of the storm.
I've been a fan of basketball since i was a little girl back home. I love watching basketball ever since because of my brother who is a basketball player in my high school. My father always brings me to my brother's game. Growing up with 4 brothers and the fact that I am the only girl and the youngest in the family, i grew up and learned most of my brother's ways. I am not a tomboy but I always wear shorts and ashamed to wear skirts but anyway everything changed when i stepped in college.
Last Saturday we had a chance to see one of my favorite basketball teams, The Detroit Pistons even though it's the Orlando Magic home court and I'm from
After the basketball game, we checked out the Church St Station in Downtown Orlando but it was kinda dead so we decided to go to Downtown Disney.
We saw a miniature golf on our way to Downtown Disney since it was still early we swing by to play 1 game of golf.

All i can say is "I didn't enjoy it" beside the fact that it was scorching hot, there weren't enough tables and chairs to cater the needs of everyone who went there. It was worth it seeing some my pinay friends and of course the lechon, I'm cool with just that...hahahaha.
I was in and out literally at the store yesterday because we are one of the bidders for the computer lot in
We went down
We brought home Gigi (mom's dog because will be in vacation for who know how long, she needs it though) and Courtney (our niece to stay for 3 days with us). The weather it been sucks for the past days, big reason why we can't go somewhere.
Today is supposed to be my driving test but they canceled it because of the weather again, it's been pouring rain all day. I can't do it tomorrow because it will be the auction day for the computers that we are trying to get. We are trying to get the 2 lots of computers but its tough because it's a close bids so hopefully we'll get it.
Oh nothing just got bored and wants to get away from my busy weeks. Ray and i went to
With Daisy Marie & Jenna Jameson(the line just to get Jenna's signature and picture with is so long, not even worth it)
Driving 4 hours? Is it really worth it? YES but for others I should say, it depends upon what your likes and interest.
I just like
Sunday, went to
Yup, it was a hell of a party Saturday Night at the Liquor Box Club. It was their opening night, we didn't even know until somebody posted an invitation in our friend's myspace that they're having a FOAM party for their opening night. The place is next door to our place so we got in free. It turned out to a huge opening because there were a lot of people showed up to party. The bar, dance floor, the whole place was packed. They set a place up in the front parking lot for the foam. It was cold but didn't stop people from going in and have fun. I even got in it and my dress got soaked!!!! No big deal.
Should i say hello first? hehe, I haven't written a blog in weeks, we got so busy in the store and I'm not in the mood to write anything when my mind can't function right because I am freaking sleepy (as Ray called me "SLEEPYHEAD").
Anyway, we went to Sea World Orlando (the last theme park we want to go in the list in
We went to 2 of their 3 rides: Kraken, the monster of all roller coasters, is the tallest and only floorless roller coaster in
The irony of things happens oftentimes, for us is the theme parks since
The last one we have to go is Busch Garden in
Our Valentine's date? A DISASTER! We went to the Casino fun cruise off of
After all the busy super bowl week and all the driving back and forth to
, and now I feel like I have my life back. We go to Miami because of business and possibilities not just pleasure. I know Miami is known for fun in the beach but it’s got a lot to offer than just bikinis and boat parties. Unfortunately it is 4 hours driving but we do all kinds of stuffs to make the trip funnier. We record TV shows to our pocket dish from dish network where we can bring the shows and watch it on the road. It’s pretty cool, we were able to escape commercials and scene that we don’t want to see (we normally do that at home anyway). Actually we hardly watch live TV shows. We record every show we want to watch to avoid commercials ;). It’s not worth waiting for me, I will get bored watching TV with those entire million commercials they have. I’d rather listen to a radio station than watch TV. Anyway, you cannot believe that in the past 3 weeks we’ve been back and forth to Miami at least 8 freaking times. It was tiring but we were able to enjoy it when were there. What kills us is driving back to Miami . Last weekend wasn’t too bad, we went over there for business so we have no choice. Hopefully that would be the last one for awhile. Tampa
At our favorite bar (Mango) in
My blog is so late, actually our wedding anniversary was Saturday January 27th. I just want to post it for my record in case i forgot where we went to our 2mnd anniversary. It was lil chilly so we decided to go just eat at a Japanese Restaurant but it was close for renovation so we turn around and saw The Melting Pot, Ray said it's supposedly a romantic place for anniversary and it's dark inside but he doesn't like their food. I was so thrilled of what he said so i insist to go and eat at Melting Pot. It was definitely different than any of the restaurant that we went together before. It's a fondue kind of thing. We chose the style of cooking and the spices that goes into it and then we have cook our own food. They just give us the meat and everything then we'll cook it and eat it after of course ;). The dessert was awesome instead of cheese we chose chocolate. Everything was terrific,we had a lot of fun and the food turns out to be very good.Ray didn't know why he didn't like their the last time.
My gift was way before our anniversary, I'm always advance(better than late right?). He gave me his gifts after work, store was really busy.
Anyways, we had a good time on our anniversary. I want to go out dancing but it was so chilly and rainy.
I can't make it longer, latest activity is just
Catch ya'll later folks....
We are trying to make our New Year different from our everyday routine, it only happens once a year. Let me start from Saturday even though it’s just a regular work.
Saturday, I have to be in
Sunday, almost stayed home because I made a reservations on the Sun Cruz at
Monday after checking out with the dogs, we drove directly to the store. I don't want to go home because i know i will just sleep all day. We search some movie ratings and schedule at AMC movie theater. It was a blast and a movie marathon. We stayed 9 hours in the theater. We first watch "Blood Diamond" it was really really good. "Black Christmas", "Pursuit of Happiness" just an ordinary story and setting but i love it, "Borat" we've seen it before and just wanna see it again and the last one was "Apocalypto" it was a really good movie but I prefer love more than just killing each other, i know it's history it's just i hate the killing of innocent individuals.
New Year a new beginning of a life full of challenges.
Happy New Year. Be hopeful for a blessed and fruitful 2007!!!!
Time goes by pretty quick, it’s my third Christmas (actually only been here 2 years now but I came during this time of the year so I had Christmas right when I got here). We have traditional Christmas Eve every year, to celebrate it at my Mother in law’s house in
We spent Christmas Day at my Sister in law’s house in
We’re not supposed to be leaving this weekend because of our nephew’s birthday party but we want to get away. We haven’t done anything last weekend and it was pretty stressful at the store. Since we haven’t been to
Oh so nice to get away from the tiresome work even just for a day.
Finally it took off Saturday at . Yea, Ray and I were one of the thousand people waiting for the NASA Discovery Shuttle’s launch. Frankly we went Thursday night at the
Week is so busy. I got an interview to the path that i'm going, hopefully i will do good and be productive on it.
A fantastic weekend had past again.
We watched the Opera Orlando“Romeo and Juliet” at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center Friday. Then after the opera we drove to
Saturday, went to Disney World’s MGM. Of course can’t leave the theme park without going to the crazy rides at stake taking pictures with or without the Disney characters.
We tried Voyage of the Little Mermaid, The magic of Disney Animation, Sounds Dangerous – Starring Drew Carey, Muppet Vision 3-D and of course the 2 attraction that you can’t leave without trying are the Rock n’ Roller Coaster and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
Then we met a friend in Downtown Disney but we just had chitchat, we don’t even have time to eat because they have to leave for somewhere else. I noticed a little change in Downtown Disney (just the stage near the bridge going to

I am so blessed of God’s planned destiny for my journey for having a good quality of life, good health and happy family that sometimes I question myself why God is so GOOD to me even though I don’t have time for HIM most of the time. Actually Thanksgiving Day was full of MY DRAMA, in spite what happened I am still thankful of having Ray into my LIFE. I thank God for giving Ray to be part of my Journey in this earth who always gives his time whenever I need it (or even I don’t need it…shhh!), always understands my mood swings and needs, always gives time for our little vacations (hahaha), and of course loving me as long as he can stand on my “more often than not childish” attitude. Believe it or not I still pout considering the fact that I am already 24(it’s Ray’s fault he just let me do it the first second and third time that I accustomed to it). Don’t worry folks I am working on it.
The Shopping day, who the hell don’t want all the sales and discount, right? Yea, I went to the mall after I finish my task at the store. I didn’t go for every sale and discount and dig the whole mall; I went there for one thing “the tote”. Yup that’s right, I just want to get the tote even though I am not sure if I will use it, but right now I don’t think so. I just bought something small for myself, Ray and a Christmas gift for our adorable great nephew (are we that old to have a great nephew????)
Weekend was relaxing; Ray didn’t work Saturday so we watch 3 movies (Casino Royale, Saw III and Deja Vu) on Friday night at the drive-in theater. We slept all day and stay in bed for the rest of the weekend.
Writing a blog so late???? here's why, I just don't feel like writing my blog without my store computer. I feel dumb without it I'm sure ya'll know what i mean:(.
Ray and I already talked about not taking any vacations or weekend getaways but Ray wanted to go to the keys to snorkel so badly because it will be chilly and we can’t go to the keys until May or June. We made our plan over the week and surely went down South.
We left Friday afternoon so we will be in
Saturday night is another night out. We went to a club in
Sunday was still cold. We just changed our whole plan. We weren’t going to the keys anymore. Friend’s cousin invited us to a boat (they do it oftentimes on the weekends) but we figured it’s going to be cold so we just simply say no. We chose to go to Ford and Edison Winter Estates; we wanted to go there it’s just we always go by so late every time. Now is the perfect time plus it’s on our way home.
We got home around at night. God it was so cold. Definitely colder than
Actually our weekend wasn’t planned to be like what we had. We decided earlier in the week just to spend our whole weekend sleeping in the house but we heard something on the radio Friday morning that Q105 is having a Car Show in
Sunday is the car show so I decided to wear my taxi outfit.
Here’s more of our pictures in the car show.
I am not really in the mood of writing a blog but i just want to share something about the crane machine that we saw monday night when we went to Press Box (Sports Bar) to watch the Monday Night Football Game. When we were coming out we saw the LOBSTER Crane Machine on our way out. The first time we ever see one. Ray loves to play a stuff toy crane machine. It was $2 a try and it was fun. We went back to the store and grab dollars then went back. Unfortunately didn't get anything but it was fun seeing them battling with claws trying to get away from it.
I never thought that I can actually go more than half of the 50 States in
For now, we have to take it easy for reasons like money(we are broke, we need to accumulate some bucks :( ) and time too because all the states left unvisited needs more time.
Anyway, I'll update this blog again if ever we will add another one or two. See yah. Have a good weekend!
In the past 2 weeks was crazy. Actually it wasn’t until we decided to go to
Our flight was
At we started driving towards
Our plan was to go back to Dallas, Texas after Carlsbad Caverns but we spent more time than what we have in our itinerary so we decided to stay somewhere and next time we know we were running out of gas I mean we were on empty and the guy that we talked to said that gas stations were 35 miles either way. We just got lucky because the Guadalupe Mountains National Park Visitor Center was selling gas for emergency (Thanks God). Since we were already in the park we decided to take a look, it’s all free maybe because the park is not as pretty as a typical national park. Ray and I were arguing where to go next since we were not going back to
Sunday is intended for
Aside from running empty on gas there was no problem. We came home safe. Thanks God
All I can say is “OMG”. Our weekend was pretty wild. We made a trip to
Friday night went to a club in
Our plan was to stay 1 night in

I started a bad day today and it's been week for me since last week. I just got this stupid cold. I have cough and runny nose right now which I really hate. I will sneeze and cough like crazy, and I had a fever last Sunday(I have to be awake though to watch my Tampa Bay Buccaneers playing against Cincinnati Bengals) which makes it worst. I already took medicine even thought I hate 'em.
What makes it good was the Buccaneers won for the first time for the season and they didn't beat just a crappy team, the Bengals is one of the toughest team in the league. It was surprising but hell yea they beat them for only 1 point. Very close but it makes a good game.
I wasn't able to go to the store today because I am kinda dizzy and I want to rest too.
Just hoping my colds will be gone soon!!!
Monday, I was ready to go to work when I suddenly have a massive abdominal pain. I ended up staying home the whole day. I refuse to go to a clinic because I always hate those places. I want to wait if the pain won't stop then maybe that's the time for me to go, fortunately after couple of hours it stop.
Tuesday, as usual my gym routine. I did some of the accounting books for the store. It's also my Mama's birthday so I called to greet her.
Wednesday, Carla called asking me if I can babysit Diego I said I can even though I was working, no big deal. I love to babysit him, he's a sweetheart, he's not a headache at all. I used to babysit most of my nephews and nieces when I was in
Thursday, getting serious about finishing the store accounting books so we can give it to our accountant by the end of the week. I also pay bills since I am planning to take a day off Friday. I pretty much did the books and decided to go to the gym to relax. I just did my machine exercises and head to the pool for the water class. Around we let the dog run inside the store while we were in the adult store looking for my costume for the Halloween (didn't find what i am looking for though and most are too big). When we came back to the store we saw the dogs in the garbage where i threw the chocolate cake, my leftover from earlier. We panicked knowing that chocolate are not good for dogs. They can die. We wish we knew who(Rocky or Bullwinkle) ate and how much. We went to Pet supermarket to get something for them to vomit instead the guy said they don't have anything but we can try the milk with oil to make them throw up.
We gave them the milk with oil when we got home. Our friend Andrew and his girlfriend Jackie invited us to go to United Skates of America later at night (). We went skating, I meant to say they went skating, I don't think I did, first of all I dunno how to skate even though I've been there once but still not enough then the most I can do is going back and forth in the locker room. It was fun looking at the good skaters dancing in the beat and doing all kinds of crazy things. We got home around and notice that one of our dogs having a diarrhea. We panicked again knowing that having diarrhea is one of the symptoms. Ray started searching in the Internet and looking for 24-hour veterinary hospital in
Friday, Yehey it's my day off. Gotta start cleaning folks......
