I'm quite frustrated these days. I've mentioned before that we were looking for a new place to stay. But my husband's family owned another house and they wanted us to stay there. However, somebody's still occupying the place so we were told to wait until they can transfer in a month or two. Soon, we found out that they asked to extend their stay, probably until January, February if possible, next year. Now, we are the ones who are in trouble as the house we are currently living in is already fully paid by the new owner and they are even planning to have it renovated. My in laws told us not to worry because they also asked the new owner to allow us to stay until January 31st!!!

Honestly speaking, I'm not happy with the development. I kept telling (almost nagging actually) my husband that we'd better find another place to stay. You see, twice, the new owner checked our place from living room down to our bedrooms... I dunno how to say this but i somehow had had an odd feeling because we belong to a different denomination. I'm not criticizing them but I just felt that their ways might be different from ours. They might think we begged too much to stay here to think they have big plans for their new house, too...sigh...

What's frustrating, too, is that I also have plans in my life, plans that will benefit my family. But I can't do it right away because I need to pack all our things (which is plenty, by the way) and keep them in place before I do anything else! I just can't walk away with it! I'm so disappointed! And I just can't help murmuring over my frustrations these days! If only I have enough money to build a house right away but I don't! Damn this life!

The Rescue

My daughter and I went to the mall this noon and ate our lunch there. And before we went home, we dropped by at my favorite bookstore and checked for something worthy to buy. While my daughter already chose what she'd like to buy (Dinosaur Opposites :D), I was debating which book to get since I only intend to buy 1 book. The Deception by Dan Brown or The Rescue by Nicolas Sparks? It took me several minutes to decide until I finally settled for the latter. Is this a good book to read? Did I make the right decision? Because I've got a feeling that one of his characters will die in the end --- very Nic Sparks' ways (remember Message in a Bottle? A walk to remember? etal). Whatever is the outcome of the story, still, I guess I won't regret buying this book for I bought it for a very cheap price ;-)

Ivanka Trump Weds

Beautiful daughter of Business magnate, Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump tied the knot to American businessman Jared Kushner on October 25, 2009.

27 year old Ivanka Marie Trump is a businesswoman, socialite, heiress and also a fashion model. She also joined her dad's business wherein she is an Executive Vice President. Such a rich person, eh?

I posted Ivanka's wedding here in my blog because I found her wedding pic so irresistible. It was captured beautifully and perfectly. I love her gown and her hair, too. She and her husband is really a handsome pair. And just like any other newlyweds, I wish them all the best!

Almost Mine

Last week, somebody sold to me a two-tone bracelet. It was cute and it really looked good on my wrist. So, I was tempted to buy. She left it to me and told me that she will text me the exact amount later. Well, I found out it wasn't cheap (around $447!). I yearn for it, love it and thought of passing it over to my daughter when she grows up. It's a good investment. But a part of me told me to return it since I don't need it this time. We are planning on a family trip some time next year. Plus, we're on house hunting, too (remember pepper?). If I'm going to buy the bracelet, I'm the only who's going to enjoy it. If I chose family trip, at least all of us will enjoy...

No choice, I returned it...sigh.. If it's for me, it's for me. If it's not, then it's not meant to be. Or maybe, it was at the right hand at a wrong price...

Edward Scissorhands, etal

Some people love to watch scary movies... well, I don't! I'm not a big fan of horror movies unlike my husband who is very much updated with those kind of movies. I want to watch and enjoy a movie show, and if possible, laugh!

Anyway, I know people has different taste so might as well leave them and mind my own. One time, my friends invited me to watch Nightmare on Elm's Street (Freddie's Back or Dead?--whateveh!) and I swore never to watch any Freddie installment anymore. I am more into suspense or thriller and action films but not so much with horror movies. But I admit I've watched a few horror movies and enjoyed some but it was still my least favorite.

Well, if there's a movie that I would like to watch again especially on a Halloween night, perhaps it would be Johnny Depp's Edward Scissorhand. This movie was shown years ago and I remember to have enjoyed it. Another would be fantasy films like Legends or Return to the Oz (Wizard of Oz) coz I totally forgot the story, hehehe :D

Kanye West Death Hoax

I thought it was true that Kanye West died but it turned out to be a hoax. Whoever made this very nasty joke?! And although I don't like to hear about his death hoax, I still can't forgive him for insulting Taylor Swift when she received her MTV award a month ago. I'm a big fan of Ms. Swift and she deserved to get that award. Mr. West should understand that it was the people/fans who voted for her and the reason why she won.

Taylor Swift's not only a talented singer but a good composer, too - and not to mention how well she knew how to play musical instruments!...

We're Moving Out


We're having a major change maybe next week or in less than a month. Ok, we're moving out and we're already scouting for a new place to stay. We expected this to happen but not too soon but what can we do? We live in an apartment owned by my husband's grandparents but is actually for sale. So, I hope we can find a decent, affordable and peaceful place to stay as soon as possible.


Well, I thought we are about to move out but all is vague up til now. I don't know exactly when we are going to transfer because of so many unavoidable circumstances. But one thing is definite - we are really moving out!

Teacher's Day

Author Unknown

God understood our thirst for
knowledge, and our need to be led
by someone wiser;
He needed a heart of compassion,
of encouragement, and patience;
Someone who would accept
the challenge regardless of the
Someone who could see potential
and believe in the best in others . . .
So He made Teachers

Teacher's Day was celebrated in our country last October 5. And even though today is already October 13, I still wanna greet them a Happy Teacher's Day!!! Thanking you also for instilling in us knowledge. You've been a part of our lives because it was from you where we've learned a lot (from reading, writing, singing, solving, etc.). And for that, we shall be forever grateful.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month or National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention and cure. NBCAM is also celebrating 25 years of awareness, education and empowerment this October, 2009.

I am asking/urging all women (and men) out there to support and spread this campaign, too. You can click the pink badge and get the html code if you want to put this on your site. Let us help each other to be aware of our health. And remember, early detection is the best prevention of breast cancer. Let's also eat a well-balanced diet and live a healthy lifestyle!
