Betty’s Makeover

We have this red Volkswagen named Betty who is currently not running. She’s red and pretty but she is also kind of old. The main problem is that it’s not easy to find auto parts for her. No one can even change her wheels because the bolts are old and they can’t find a wrench to fit it, I think.

We got Betty from an uncle of mine and we really liked her but now she’s slowly rotting away in front of the house because there are no mechanics here that can look at her or supply the needed parts to make her run again.

So I went online and found a site on New Auto Parts where I can browse through their online catalogue and order from there. This is nice and a purple gorilla is there to assist. This is perfect to make Betty’s makeover a reality.

Picture Life

I am a photo enthusiast. I love a good photo. I even consider myself not that shabby in the art of capturing images. So when it comes to taking pictures, I try to look through other photograhers’ work to get inspired and to learn new techniques and styles. Like Russia stock photography, photoblogs of famous photojournalists, and photo sites of my friends who are all nearly ever so active in taking pictures with their cameras. 

I for one, love landscapes and still life. However, close to my heart would be people, portraits. I like taking a picture of someone totally unaware that I captured him in a state of something with all the best elements one can have in a photograph. Images like that are worth framing an placed on display.

The Anemic in Me

Sigh. Last Saturday, I suddenly felt woozy all of a sudden. Like sort of a head rush but with the world turning about me. It was an awful feeling. My cousin MJ came to the house to check on my blood pressure and voila, I have low blood pressure. Iron deficiency was the reason. Weird enough because I’m not losing any blood for now. My OB said that it’s pretty normal for women, after giving birth, not to menstruate. It may take months or a year before the menstruation cycle comes back. Yay!

Still, it’s not exactly good news because I still need iron on my diet. So now, my parents are gorging me up with food. The good thing is I can get to eat anything I want like chocolates, stone crab, sweet corn, fried chicken, hotdogs and other yummy food.

Now, I have to eat more. Gain more to defeat the anemic in me. 🙂

Moviemania

I am a movie buff and I wondered what would be new movies I can look forward to. I stumbled upon this movie review site called CinemaMob. It’s a mobile video club that allows you to view mobile video clips online. You can also download them on your cellphone. More than just video clips, you can also have movies on your phone. Interesting, right?

They also have nice reviews on each movie featured, as well as a synopsis for each movie. I find this extremely helpful for movie buffs like me.

Anyways, check their site for more information. However, I already have new movies in mind, like Salt (Jolie), Shutter Island (DiCaprio) and Alice in Wonderland (Depp). Yay!

50-50

I was born with a poor eyesight. Growing up, I thought that if I could not see it clearly, everybody else can’t too. Since I was short, I was always seated right up in the front so I can see what’s written on the blackboard. this was good until I was in 6th grade. I had to admit to myself that there was something wrong with my eyesight because I can’t see clearly at school.

It was only when I turned 23 that I finally had my eyesight corrected and gave up contact lenses and eyglasses. I had Lasik eye surgery. It was an easy procedure done for about 30 minutes and it didn’t hurt a bit. They placed anesthesia drops on my eyes before they did the surgery.

I just suddenly wondered if Heaven has perfect eyesight. I hope so. I mean, there is a 50-50 chance that she could take after me, right? Well, not to worry though, there’s Lasik surgery at Stahl Eye Center now. But I’m praying she would have 20:20 vision.

Rogue, too?

Sometimes, we all wish that we are the only one having this name or have thought of using this title or so. Being unique is something you can be proud of in many ways. So, for me, it is intriguing to find something or someone that is similar to me or anything closely related to me.

health is wealth

So my financial status has not improved yet but my emotional state is better because I just chatted with my bestfriend Jen. i do miss her and she knows how to make me feel better.

Anyhow, although money is not that easy for now, I am grateful that everyone in my family is healthy. Paying for additional medicare supplement plans is not a burden although for now, I had to forego it for other more urgent things like Heaven‘s milk and diapers.  I’m just glad that we don’t need any healthcare.

Which makes me say that the title of this post should be healthcare needs wealth.

on reading

I am a bookworm. My dad introduced me to this passion and I was hooked. Unfortunately, this led to my poor eyesight because I became addicted to the written word. I read and read for hours on end and even when there is bad lighting. I eventually had lasik surgery.

My dad and stepmom are now complaining about their eyesight and the Stahl Eye Center for NearVision CK offers many options for them. The procedures are quick and the doctors who will be doing them all come from top universities. NearVision CK may reduce the need for my parents to use reading glasses.

I now have “Alice in Wonderland and Throught the Looking Glass” to read aloud for Heaven. I hope to instill in her the same passion for reading as my dad did for me.

Prepping up

Our dance presentation is going to be tomorrow night! I am so excited. Unfortunately i’m totally bummed with my costume. It is all in Benetton colors. So I need to have a solid color pants, round-neck t-shirt and another solid color short sleeved polo. That is a problem. But the one thing I won’t have to worry about is my hair because there’s this place, the colony salon, that does amazing hair styles. The make-up will also be a cinch as well because I learned a lot from my aunt and cousin in KK.

Tonight, we will be having our last practice. I want to bring Heaven but then my parents are against the idea because our practice is at 7pm. Sigh. I don’t want to leave her. I really love being with her. If only I can do all the things I want to do with her somehow just being there with me, not crying or does not want to be carried by me.

Yeah, I wish. Hehehe…time to go and prep up.
