Awards From Friends

I recieved this Biggest Heart award and Blog of the Month award from Rickavieves

Thank you so much for this wonderful awards that you gave me gurl...It's so nice of you to do this.

Board Game Tournament

My hubby Ray and I agreed to have a tournament of scrabble last summer. The rule is we'll play and whoever wins the first 15 games win the tournament. We also agreed that whatever word you put on the board you have to know what it means and have to explain it. It's a great way of learning and I love it but it's tougher because I know a lot of words yet I don't know all the meaning so I have to play whatever I know. We had 2 set of scrabble tournament last summer and I won both tournament.

Now that we found another board game we decided to play and have a tournament again. I know you all are familiar with Monopoly board Game. It's tough for me because I never played 1 ever since and it's kinda tricky and needs to be wise on spending your monopoly money or you'll lose in the game. We already played 4 games and it's 1-3 so far. Ray is winning on this tournament. Whoever wins the first 10 win the tournament. It's fun and it's definitely a way of making yourself occupied.

3rd Year Wedding Anniversary

Sunday January 27 was our 3rd year wedding anniversary. It seems like we've only known each yesterday yet we know a lot from each other. Marriage is not just LOVE, it's got everything to make life the most challenging one. Living with someone you love is tough yet fun. You have to learn how to understand, communicate and file yourself up with patience because you surely need it for a relationship that you will in to. What I learn about my 3 years of marriage is a thing called "GIVE AND TAKE". Two people committed should know how to give and take in order for that relationship to work and last. Don't expect that when you start a relationship you can't just take and take because that someone will be tired of giving and next time you you are pushing him away from you and your relationship.
We still have a long ways to go so we better pack with all the ingredients that will make this all work until the end.

We have pictures from the casino dinner cruise:

Free lunches

Talk about free lunches, we have two days in a row free lunches here. My mom (actually mother in law) brought us lunch (Meatball sandwich with salads and French fries for today and shredded pork yeasterday) from where they ate. She's always bringing us food. She is a good cook and I love her rice and beans. Most of the time when she invited us to come over to have dinner, she always makes my favorite rice and beans. It's just incredibly delicious. She is just so sweet and warm. Actually the whole family is always warm that's why I don't think that I was away from my family when I first moved here. I have an instant family.

Thank you for the food MOM!

Girls Night Out

Kristine, Madel and I went out Wednesday night to Whiskey North here in Tampa. The day before that, I talked to Madel but wasn't sure if I'll go or not. When Kristine called that night and told me they are going to Whiskey North so I'll just go ahead and went and it was fun. I've been talking to Madel all this time and we haven't met yet. This is the perfect time to meet her and it was, we had a blast. I didn't drink that much because I still have to drive. The night started slow yet when it gets later the more people were in the club, I wasn't surprised at all because it was Wednesday. Hope you'll our pictures folks.

Filipino food

I miss them, my friend called me last week and she said that we are having a get together since Monday was a holiday. I went at her house Monday even though the store was open ( hey I'm the boss..hehehe). I only see my friends once in awhile because they're busy and and I am busy myself. Actually Ray found her working as a manager in McDonald's when I was still in the Philippines. Ray told her about me and when I came here we became friends automatically. She's been here 9 years. Through her I found more friends and we always meet at her house since she is a good cook. Every time she cook and I can't come she always call and said pick this food I got for you since I am only 2 miles away from her house. Gathering with other Filipino is just fun, you will feel at home. I miss my parents and family but not as much as the first 6 months. Now I adjusted pretty good with the help of my family and friends here.

I was just cleaning out my hard drive and looking at my pictures in my computer. I came across with my old pictures when i was so naive (hope I look like one) and assuming that the world is so gentle and nice. Now that I embrace reality, the world outside the classroom is much much different, crimes happens every day, accidents occurs every hour or so. When you finish college or get out from school then you you are outside and trying to make a living, everything that you imagine change in a blink of your eye. It's really bizarre when you start looking for job, you may find one but it's not really what you want or the salary is lower than what you expected. It's just the fact that happens to most of us.
Anyway here's my photo that made me think of my old days


I hate going to the dentist! I don't have a choice or else I will be suffering from tooth decays. This morning happens to be my dentist appointment for my cleaning. Getting up early is my enemy and getting up early when you have colds is the most worst thing for me. I don't want to cancel it because I want to get over with. Once it's done then I don't have to think about it for six months. I am not afraid afraid of it, it's just I hate the idea of going. Ray asked me if I want the gas but I don't all that. Thanks God cleaning happens only once in every six months.

Browsing the net

I was browsing a site on my free time today and i saw a friend's photo and it looks pretty cool so i tried it myself. It's kinda ridiculous but i just like to share it. Ray was telling me "oh brother" but he suggest pictures to put anyway.hehe

Here's what i came up with.

Shopping Cart Software

I was surfing on the net last week and I cam across with this great site, I shop a lot because I can find more stuff online than in stores locally especially in my size. I've been having problems looking for my size. Nowadays, being online is so popular, it is very well known not only to some but people in different walks of life. It so popular that everything has ways to be in it. Anything you can think of it's got to be in the internet. Shopping is one of them. It is very common that people who got access to the internet will shop online and make great deals. I do it myself all the time. Aside from being convenient, it is a big help for me. I don't need to waste my whole day and find nothing. Online I can just save it and come back to it later if I have something else more important to do. Shopping online is commonly use these days, it's not just very convenient, you will find great deals online. More people shop online that's why more competitors are popping here and there and if you are a merchant you want a user friendly system when it comes to shopping cart for check out. Merchants want to take care of their customer that they will come back and shop for more. It needs to be more trusted. That is very important. Ashop commerce is very convenient and it's on top of its line. ecommerce software will help your business to be a user friendly, convenient and reliable which everyone wants nowadays.

I feel horrible

This week is just too miserable, Ray catch a cold and I got it too after him. I don't get sick that quick but if I do I will suffer until it's over. I have this irritating runny nose and my cough is starting. I hate getting sick because I avoided medicine as much as possible, I am not against them because medicine still helps us everyday but if I don't need it that desperately then I don't want to be dependent on medicine. Hopefully I will get better soon.

Oh man

Oh geez, I just got back from the gym and I am sore all over my body. I always have it every time I skipped my routine for a month or two. I will be suffering for it for the whole week, it's the prize for being so lazy :(

online casino

Having some fun is so unusual, we all want to have a little fun here and there. To have fun is not limited or equal to just one thing. It could be anything, it just depends on what you standards to have fun. It could be just eating or just watching TV. Some take it to the next level especially when you have access to internet. Internet is so helpful and it serves a lot of purpose. It caters a lot of needs from millions of people around the globe. No matter what you need, Internet will help and solve whatever problems you have. How convenient that would be to all the people out there using online casino? By going to pro360 online casino review, you will have a pretty good insights about most if not all the casino online. I came across on this site online casino that gives a lot of reviews and of course gives a lot of information on casinos online, it is very convenient because you don't have to drive just to go to casinos if you have one in your area of town. pro360 gives you the lists and the the reviews of all the casino you want to know more before you start using it. If you are lucky enough it could mean big bucks and set you free for the rest of you life. You just never know. Strive to win and who knows it's you time for that Big Bucks!

I'm back to my gym routine

Yup, it's been awhile, I can't even remember when was the last time i went to the gym. I don't have to lose weight or anything but I just love to get fit. Sometimes I felt very weak when I forgot to go to the gym. I only go there twice or maybe when I'm kinda lazy I go there once just because I am crazy about the Step Class they have. I just love the class because it's so intense and I re energize my whole system. I don't have specific New year's resolution (always don't have resolution ) but if i do it's gonna be go to the gym and start using what what I'm paying every month!

Weekend well spent

We didn't really do much this weekend. Saturday at least didn't have to work and all i did was sleeping all day instead of cleaning, hmmm maybe I did a little bit of cleaning and mostly sleeping ( hey nobody's perfect). Sunday I decided to go to church at 12:30pm ( I've been wanting to go and always have reasons and I end up not going, to be honest I can count it with just my hand). Ray and I went to our computer store to finish something and then realized we're hungry so we just went to Chili's so we can watch the Indianapolis Colts against the San Diego Chargers football game. The Chargers(28) beat Colts(24) (I wanted the Colts to win so there will be Colt versus Patriots game but I guess not anymore). By the way we both love the steak fajitas from chili's and on top of that is the molten chocolate cake, it's just incredible. Then after eating, we went home to watch the Dallas Cowboys against the New York Giants, the Giants (21) beats the Cowboys (17).
We went grocery shopping since we have nothing to eat at all. That's all for this weekend and hope y'all have a wonderful weekend folks.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the division title for this season much better than last year's dead last for the AFC South. They had their first playoffs game last week against the New York Giants and the Buccaneers lost the game. It was quite depressing but fans always hope that they'll do better next year. Good luck for next Season Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Cyrano de Bergerac on Broadway

One of the things we did when we were in New York City was we're able to go to one of the broadway shows. We chose Cyrano starring Kevin Kline and Jennifer Garn which both have an amazing performance. What's weird is seeing Jennifer Garner performing live on stage when I'm used to see her on screen TV or even on the big screen. Either way she's an incredible actress. Too bad we are not allowed to take pictures.

The Plot:

Here is a classic love story, interwoven in tragedy. The story is based on a true incident. It tells about an emotional philosopher and poet and a witted swordsman. He serves as a cadet in the French Army. He falls head over heels for the pretty and strong-willed French socialite called Roxanne. But, due to his big nose, he can not muster up the courage to confess his love to her. Later, Cyrano learns that, Roxanne is in love with the good-looking Christian de Neuvilette, who is a dim-witted comrade. Struck by the harsh reality, Cyrano begins to write love letters and poetry for his beloved Roxanne on Christian’s behalf. After many years, Roxanne finds out the truth.

“Cyrano De Bergarac” is the latest Broadway show. Its previews were held on October 12, 2007 and the opening night is about to take place on November 1. 2007. The show is scheduled to run for only 10 weeks, at the renowned Richard Rodgers theatre. This 1897 classic tale of love has been beautifully translated and adapted by Anthony Burgess, to produce a splendid stage version on Broadway.

Kevin Kline plays the love-struck character. He has a Tony as well as an Academy Award to his credit. Jennifer Garner plays the lovely socialite Roxanne. She has a Golden Globe Award in her bag. Daniel Sunjata plays the dim-witted Christian. He has been nominated for a Tony Award. Besides these awesome actors, the show has Euan morton playing Ligniere, Max Baker in the role of Ragueneau, John Douglas Thompson playing the character of Le Bret, Chris Sarandon as Comte de Guiche, and Concetta Tomei as Roxanne’s Duenna.
