Return to Dancing

Yesterday, I went out for a dance practice. This was for the upcoming Lourdes Days on February 6-11, 2010. Since it’s my alma mater, I would be performing with my relatives who graduated from there as well.

So I have my talkative aunts and cousins all danicng with me. It was a fun time. I was sweating a lot and having the time of my life. Gad, I do miss dancing.

One of my aunts, Tita Penny, arrived from abroad. She brought all these shoes and stuff for all of us. She also told us that my cousin Asha, gave birth to a baby boy. She said that my cousin took Columbus Health Insurance for her baby also. My aunt wondered if I already have one for Heaven. I told her no, since I am still thinking about what insurance I will get from my sister.

We continued our practice until 10pm. Baby Heaven was sleepy the entire time but she was constantly disturbed by her cousins. Still, I think she loved it.

Our performance will be on February 7. I am so excited already. It’s my first performance here since I arrived. I do hope we will do great.

2010 wishlist part 2

I had 6 items previously posted before and now to add to my wishlist are the following:

7. dvd home cinema system- I want to really experience dvd watching at home on a different level.

8. a brand new car- any will do as long as it’s new.

9. aircon– For my bedroom so that no mosquito will bite my baby’s finger. 😦

Until here for now…Goodnight, world!

PC stuff

My stepmother just told me that someone offered her a Dell laptop for sale. since I was on the lookout for a mini laptop she asked how much. It was for 40,000php. Of course I balked at it. No way.

I’m also on the prowl for cheap printer ink. I’m looking for HP Replacement Printer Ink Cartridges that are within my budget and will not cause any problem for my printer. I noticed that some printer ink cartridges makes the printer give dirty and smudgy prints after a few uses only. This is such a hassle. This usually happens when the printer ink is only a refill.

So I’m still on the search for my dream laptop and printer ink cartridge. Sigh. Wish me luck.

Multi-tasking household chores

This is something you should not do. Trying to do everything at once. It can only lead to accidents.

Yesterday, my mother called me up to ask me how am I doing and how baby Happy was doing. The usual banter ensued and then she told me about my sister’s work with an insurance company. My brother also signed up as an agent. Both of them are still under training. She discussed with me something about  term life insurance quotes and how much I can get from them. she also mentioned things like I can use it for life insurance or educational plan for Happy. I wasn’t really interested since my finances are far from stable.

After her call, I went about doing my chores. since we don’t have any househelp, I was doing everything from washing dishes to looking after my baby. I started to sterilize Heaven‘s milk bottles when she started to cry. I had the gas stove turned on low fire and attended to my baby. I don’t know how much time passed when suddenly I remembered what I was previously doing.

Thank God that I did remember or else a fire could have started.

Only two milk bottles were saved inside the sterilizer. The rest melted.

Now, i’m more seriously thinking of getting the insurance plan for whatever possible accidents I might have.

Playing house

There are many things in life that I wish I have and one of them is a dollhouse. I really love playing with tiny toys. I know that dollhouse miniatures would be perfect for me. I don’t necessarily have an eye for details but I learned to appreciate the skill and effort it takes in making something so small.

My dream dollhouse would have a marroon roof and cream walls. I was thinking more of a Spanish style home. It will have two floors. The ground floor would be for the living room, dining area and kitchen. The second floor would be for my baby Heaven‘s room, my room, and the recreation room slash entertainment room slash music room. Oh and the bathroom too.

I will have mini everything! From chairs, beds and lamps! I also want doors and windows painted chocolate brown. There will be cream and white colored curtains on the windows and lamps in the living room, my room and a night lamp for Heaven’s room. My music room will have a piano, guitar and a widescreen LCD TV with a DVD player and subwoofers.

My kitchen will be complete. I want a big refrigerator and a wide sink. I will have the best burners and an oven so my dolls can bake stuff. The dining room will have mahogany colored table and 6 chairs. I want a dining cabinet where the best china can be on display. I also will have a mini chandelier.

A little distant from the living room is a staircase which climbs alee leading to a bight red door. That would be my room just beside a sky blue lavender door that of Heaven’s room. At the left corner mini hall is my bathroom wide enough to accommodate my pink bathtub and a walk in closet.

Yes, this is exactly how I want my dollhouse to be.

new baby gifts!

Wonderful news! My cousin Io just gave birth to a bouncing baby boy named Prince. Instead of buying a gift for my new nephew, I decided to look for a gift for my cousin instead.

For quite sometime now, Magnetic Bracelets have caught my eye. I know many people who loved wearing them. They say it helps with their health. The magnetic bracelets they had on were quite plain which is why it didn’t interest me so much until now. I stumbled upon this site that really turned my head.

BillyTheTree magnetic bracelets are both stylish and affordable. Their prices are reasonable like their semi-precious collection which was for less than $30 only! They have a lot of great designs (one turquiose heart bracelet called my name) and they also offer free shipping worldwide! It’s truly a find.

So I am now in the process of choosing among the magnetic bracelet collection which would be nice for Io. BillyTheTree also offer good service and their site is easy to navigate.

Thanks to BillyTheTree, magnetic bracelets are now fashionably chic. I can’t hardly wait to get magnetic bracelets for me and Io.

one fishy moment

After my baby’s regular check up with her peditrician, I found myself strolling down the park instead of heading to the shuttle terminal. I saw a concrete bench a few  steps away  and decided to sit down to rest..From where I sat cradling baby Happy, some folks caught my attention throwing, scattering crumbs all over as a flock of pigeons glide down to pick and feed on them. It suddenly gave me an idea of getting a pet for baby Happy.

To my surprised, right beside the cathedral a block away from where I was seated, there was a pet shop. I went in to find what pet would be nice to get. I was thinking of a puppy but she won’t get to play with it until she gets a bit older. After quite some time, I decided on fishes because they are relaxing to look at. I also checked how much an aquarium would cost and  some coral for sale.

I decided to just look and buy coral and fishes some other day since I can’t very well indulge in untimely expenses for now. But I did take note of the WYSIWYG coral prices and clown fish prices. I think by next year, baby Happy will have her own aquarium to play with.
