I'm not talking about people here, I'm talking about the snow. Until now, I'm still waiting for the snow. It was snowing this afternoon and I thought that was it but it only takes less than 5 minutes and it stop. It was a heavy snow fall but now it's all gone. I'm so upset because I want the snow now:-( The forcast for next week will be 30 cm of snow. Wow! that would be nice..looking forward to have snow falls next week.

No, it's not me who's not feeling well but it's hubby. It's been 3 days now that he's not feeling well. I'm sure it's not H1N1 virus coz he had H1N1 vaccine 3 weeks ago. He don't have flu nor colds but his fever is on and off and he always had stomach cramps. I'm worried about his condition just now but he don't want to go to the hospital. He always tell me that he will be okey. Anyway, his not staying in the bed..he was out this morning and afternoon to see some friends but just taking of his fever and stomach cramps makes me really worried. Just now, he's watching tv and I'm hoping that he will be okey tomorrow.

My friend ask me to make a photo slideshow. Everything was ready but when I was about to burn it to the disk, my computer did not detect the burner and not even read any disk. I was really worried so we went back to futureshop where we bought my laptop this afternoon and good thing that it's still under warranty. They have to change the burner and nake a check-up on my computer. They said it will take 8 to 14 days to have it done. Oh my! I will really miss it. Good that I still have my other laptop and this is what I'm using just now but I don't have my photos in this laptop and most of my software that I'm always using are all in my other laptop.Too bad but I have nothing to do with it. I will just wait to have it done.

Advance Merry Christmas everyone. It's already December 01 in Philippines and other countries just now. I'm pretty sure that christmas lights and decors were already seen anywhere. This is one of the things that I really miss in Philippines. We can hear christmas songs from mid september to mid January or even Febuary. But here, most of the people started to decorate december first or even mid december. I'm already known here to be the first one to put christmas lights and decors in the neighborhood. I always start putting up my christmas decors after the first snow fall. But this year, the snow is very late. I finished decorating Nov 22 but the snow just started last night and it was not a big snow falls but it's enough to cover the ground but they were all melted at the end of the afternoon.
Anyway, our house is already ready for christmas and I am too. Oh! I still have to buy some gifts. I already have the lists of gifts to buy so I don't think it will take time for me to shop.
Just now, I'm still enjoying my work and more orders of lumpiang shanghai coming in. My work and my little business took most of my time as this moment.



Sunday, 15 November 2009


As usual, I was not able to do some updates here as I promise. Games from FB were taking all my times after work. I always open my FB account no matter how tired I am after work. It’s like that it’s already part of my daily routine. The earliest time I start working is 9:30 in the morning and I always wake up 7:30 so that I still have time to do some games. I’m so lucky that my work is only 3 minutes drive from home. Hubby always drops me to work 5 minutes before my starting time.

Well, talking about my work, boss already gave me more hours. I can do the preparation now and take orders from the costumers. Boss was very happy knowing that I can do anything now from taking orders to cashier. 11:30 am to 1:00 pm is the peak hours and after those hours is very tranquil. Boss doesn’t need two or more workers after peak hours. The first few weeks I was working there, he told me that he wants to give me more hours but he can’t because he can’t leave me alone in the afternoon. But now, I can work alone in the afternoon while he’s in his office. I’m working 5 days a week now and weekend is always my off. He gave the weekend to the students. And to tell you, I’m the only worker that is not student he he he. All my co-workers are all students that’s why boss wants to keep me.

Few more weeks of work and I will have my new dslr camera :-)



Tuesday, 3 November 2009


Good morning everyone. As I promise, I'm trying my best to update my blogs regularly. Just want to write something here before heading to work. I will start at 10:30 this morning and finish 1:30 this afternoon. I don't have more hours every tuesday because I told my boss that I'm not available every tuesday night from 7 pm because of my bellydancing class. Instead of taking a day off every tuesday, he give me few hours because all the workers are all student. It's better this way at least I have my weekend off. But the last two weeks, I worked saturday night from 4pm to 8:25 our closing time. I like working in saturday night because it's very tranquille. It's not busy and we can finish cleaning before 8pm. Instead of finishing 8:25pm, we always finish 8Pm but we still get paid the remaining 25 mins because the 25 minutes is the cleaning time after the closing. But becuase there's always no costumer at night, so we can spend our time cleaning the store and go home 25 minutes earlier :-)

I have to get ready now and expect my new updates in my other blogs this afternoon.



Monday, 2 November 2009


It's been a while that I didn't update my blogs. I'm no longer a fulltime housewife. I can't spend most of my time in my laptop as before due to my work. It's already two weeks gone since I started my work and my boss gave me more hours. It's not really my plan to work fulltime but I started to love my work and found more friends. And the most important is I practice my french while earning money :-) I want to save most of my salary because I'm thinking of taking a photography course. It's been a while that I'm thinking of this but I'm not satisfied with my french. My co-workers are all nice and they always correct my french and it really helps me. I started to gain confidence in talking french to the Quebecers (Quebecois) and I'm sure I can speak french fluently before the end of this year he he he.

I'm not working today and yesterday. We had a very nice and sunny day yesterday and today. We took advantage of the nice weather. We finished the Christmas lights outside and I spend a whole day cleaning our computer room and just now, I'm babysetting the daughter of my friend. She's working tonight until midnight and she was not able to find somebody to babysit for the night. I picked up her baby at the daycare at 4 pm and she still here until 8:45 pm. The auntie of the baby will pick her up after work.

This is all for now guys. The baby wants me to play with her...I will really try my best to blog tomorrow after work or after my bellydancing class.



Monday, 19 October 2009


As I said in my previous post, I'm starting my new work today. It was this morning up to 1:00 pm. So far, my job is not bad at all. It's not yet complicated for now since I'm still a trainée. But before I left my work, my boss told me that he like my performance and he gave me more hours for this week. Oh my, I'm so happy that my boss like my performance and I got more hours which means more money for me :-) and aside from that, orders of lumpia are still coming in. I'm really happy and I'm hoping that I will stay longer in my work.

That's all for now...I still have to wake up soon tomorrow for my work.




My very best friend will be getting married soon next month in Romania. She’s inviting us to be in her wedding but it is very impossible for me since I’m not yet a Canadian citizen. I need to have a visitor’s visa or tourist visa to enter Romania. We decided to give her a present. We paid the invitation cards for her and still planning to give her the save the date cards. I was thinking of doing it by myself to have a personalize card but I don’t think I can do it before she will go back to Romania. I just started my job today and I don’t have time anymore to do some but thanks to because they save my time. They can do the save the date cards for me in a very affordable price. My friend will have the cards before she will go back to Romania. By the way, these cards will be my surprise to her. I’m sure, she will be very happy and I am too.

My day start with a good news. It was 9:00 in the morning when I woke up with the ring of the telephone. The call was for me asking me if I will want the job that I applied 2 weeks ago. Without hesitation, I said yes. Then she gave me an appointment at 11:00 in the same morning. I was so nervous yet excited. Nervous because the interview will be in french and excited because if I will get this job, this will be a good opportunity for me to practise my french.

The interview didn't take long and after a few minutes, he gave me my schedule for next week. He gave me 6.5 hours only for next week because I'm still a trainée. If everything will work fine, then he will give me more hours. Just now, 6.5 hours is enough for me. I still have more time to do my lumpia and more time to go around with hubby. All I want for this work is to practise my french and have more friends.

I can't stop myself feeling nervous every time I think of this job. To think that I'm dealing with french speaking clients, I have to make french perfect. Oh my! I hope I will succeed with this job.

Goodluck to me:-)




Renovating the house is one of the things that I asked from my hubby. I wanted to have a bigger living room and fortunately, he did it for me.

Insomnia is attacking me in this past few weeks. I have a hard time sleeping at night and wake up too early in the morning. It really bothers me and it affect my mood. Good thing that I can control my temper, if not, I'm sure I will be a nagger to hubby.

My friend told me to take a warm bath at night and I did it many times but it doesn't change anything. Last night was the worst night I ever had. I slept 3:30 in the morning and work up 7:00 in the morning. I tried to stay in the bed for a while but I can't sleep back. I really don't know what to do. I tried different tricks that I've search in the internet but nothing succeed. I will try another trick tonight. I hope this will work this time.

Everyone of us wants to save money in everything we want to buy. We always check every week if there is a special in the store and even online store. Most of the time I saw free stuff in online stores and most people try to grab it because it’s free. But they didn’t realize that they will pay double of the shipping fees that will come out the same price of their original price. Like the free business cards. My friend took it as she thought it’s a good opportunity for her because it’s free and it was too late when she realise that she paid too much of the shipping fee and the quality was not good. She really had regret when she knew from our friend who ordered business card at It’s not free but the price is very affordable and they have good quality. Selection of designs is not limited so you can choice any design you want.
So why get free with limited choices of design and double price of the shipping fee if you can pay affordable one with no advertising logo of their company in your business card? Be wise.

POOR MON MARI (my husband)

I had my french course this morning at 9:00 and we woke up very late. It was already 8:45 when we woke up and I still have to prepare myself and took my breakfast. But sad to say that I was not able to do any of them. I was not able to wash my face. I just change my cloths and went straight to the car. We stop at mcdonald and bought a cup of coffee and muffin. Hubby was in a hurry so that I can catch up my class. Unluckily, the police stop us becuse hubby was driving 50 km/h in a 30 km/hr zone. We don't have any choice but pay what is need to be paid.

I feel pity to hubby. Anyway, that's all I can share to you today, the bad luck that happen to us :-)

(Photo taken last weekend when I had my first flight with a helicopter)

I don't know how to start this post but I will try my best to have one. I was inactive for a while because of a very stupid reason. I been trying to many times to make an entry but my mind was not working. I was very distracted with my farms in Facebook. I spend most of my time in that game and not even doing some house chores. I’m not really proud of myself. I’m getting crazy with that game. And now, I’m trying to minimize my time in my so called farm and concentrate in my blog.

Lots of things happen to me in the past few weeks. Some were good and some were not that good but not that bad too. I’m already in my third week of my belly dancing class. The first day was not exciting. When I saw the instructor, I felt disappointed because she is very fat he he he. But when she dance, oh my! Her body is very flexible. I like my belly dancing course now. I’m looking forward for our final show he he he.

I’m back with my French language course too. It’s really a need for us here to speak French fluently to have a nice job. I don’t really like that much but I have no choice. It’s only 1 day per week, so it’s not that bad at all.

We’re always away from home every weekend. And hopefully, I can share to you the photo of our weekend trip soon. I will not promise but I will try.

I guess I have to go now. See you next time guys!

(Photo was taken at Starlight Beach during my vacation)

It's exactly one month today since I came back from my vacation in Philippines. I don't know why but I feel lonesome since I woke up this morning until now. I tried to make myself busy but I can't stop my tears falling. Good thing that hubby is always here to comfort me. He drove me to my favorite place...I felt better when I saw the water flowing the river. Water is really a therapy for me. Everytime I have problems or miss my family, I always go to the river next to our home, sat under the tree facing the water.. And most of the time, we drove along the river everytime we feel for a ride.

My life today is like the photo above. It's dark but I see the light through my hubby's presence. I'm so thankful to my hubby for he always understand me and always there for me.

I'm sure you ask yourself what drives me's the Farm Town on Facebook that drives me crazy. It's been a while that I join farm town game but I didn't visited it, not even taking care of it. Most of my friends are talking about how they take care of their farm, how much money they have and what they have in their farm. Everytime they talked about their farm, I felt shy because I have nothing to share with them. My farm was empty. So lately, I decided to learn how take care of my to make money. I started to visit my friends farm and did some work so that I will get enough money to buy seed and flowers for my farm. Well, my farm now is getting bigger and bigger. I mean, I already harvested some fruits and vegetables and i planted some flowers too. I spend most of my time now in my farm checking if i have vegetable or fruits that are ready to harvest. I'm checking them from time to time because some of them will be ready for harvest in 4 hours.

If you own a farm town, please invite me so that I will have more neighbors so that I will earn more money :-)

I remember the first week I arrived here in Quebec; hubby had a dial-up connection of internet. I want to talk to my family in Philippines through internet but it was really bad. The connection was very slow. I can’t open my webcam and not even them. Because of that very slow connection, we paid a lot of the telephone bill because I always call my family using our landline phone. After a year of suffering that very slow internet connection, we both decided to change our internet company. We took a bundle of high-speed internet, cable and telephone. Since then, I talk to my family regularly though chat with webcam. Dial-up and high-speed internet connection makes a very big different. I can upload and download very quickly. I don’t need to wait for how many hours before I finish my download and upload.

I’m talking about my experience of using dial-up internet connection and high speed internet connection because I was surfing in the net last night and I saw Wild Blue Satellite Internet. I was so amazed how fast their internet connection and how affordable the price is. I remember my friend having problem with her internet connection. I told her to check the wild blue reviews to have more information. I’m pretty sure that she will switch to wildblue satellite internet.

Last Aug 9 was the last day of "LES FÊTES DE LA NOUVELLE FRANCE" and that's the day after I arrived here from my vacation in Philippines. I was very happy that I was able to attend this festival since I never miss one since I arrived in Canada 6 years ago.

It's always been my dream to have a dress like them but it's too expensive that I can't afford to have one. Since I was in Philippines, I asked the dressmaker that I know to make one for me. I show her the photo I took before as a sample and she did it very well.

Click here to see more photos.

I'm so thankful that I arrived here in Quebec safely. Hubby picked me up at Quebec Airport last August 8 at 10:30 in the morning. I was so happy when I saw hubby waiting for me at the waiting area. I missed him so much and I missed our home. I didn't have good sleep during the trip so when we arrive home, I slept for 3 hours and then hubby woke me up at 5 in the afternoon. He treat me for dinner and we went to see the jazz festival. I really had a hard time sleeping at night because of the change of time. I stayed awake until 3:00 in the morning. I didn't feel to do anything.

I woke up 7:00 in the morning the next day. We went to Quebec City for the Nouvelle France Festival. I was so lucky because that was the last day of the festival. I never miss this festival since I arrived here. The weather was so nice and we really enjoy that day. Hubby took lots of photo of me with my nouvelle france costume he he he. I will share to you the photos next time because they are still at my hubby's computer.

Oh by the way, I owe you a lot of my photo during my vacation as I promised. I'm really sorry guys because until now, I'm not finish cleaning the photos. I have a lot and I need to delete some of them. I don't have much time to do it this days because we are too busy. We just arrive from our 3 days trip to New Brunswick and more trips before the summer will end. Hopefully, I can finish my photos this week.



Friday, 7 August 2009


Yes, I'm here in Hongkong airport. I just arrive a while ago. I arrived in gate 64 and my next flight is in gate 1. Oh my, I walk 1 kilometers or maybe more. Good that I have 3 hours my next flight. I almost run because I want to be in gate 1 so that I can open my computer. And here I am! I just want to let you know that I'm going back to Canada and be with my husband. I miss him a lot but leaving my family in Philippines is really hard too. I started missing them already especially the little kids. For now, I don't have any plan yet of visiting them.

Well, that all for now. I will post lots of photos as soon as I will arrive in Quebec.


Wednesday, 1 July 2009


Hi guys! I'm really really sorry for not updating all my blogs. I'm here in Philippines now with my family. Actually, I arreived here June 19 and we flew to CDO the next day. Not updating my blogs is not the fault of the internet connect. It's my fault. I'm too busy visiting my friends and relatives, party here and party there and I didn't give time to update my blogs. I feel very guilty now so I decided to do it at least twice a week.

Anyway, my stay here is very memorable. We had our Mega EB with my family last June 27 and it was really great. I'm so happy that I finally meet them in person. Two days after the mega eb, one of the member invited us to have dinner in her house after their town fiesta. I ate a lot and I'm not ashame to tell you that I'm gaining a lot lot lot. I really missed Pilipino foods and I can't stop myself eating them all. We will have another gathering tonight, that means, more Pilipino foods again and I ordered sea foods.

We took a lot of photos and I will post it here sometime or maybe when I will come back in Canada. I still have 42 days of stay here and I will make sure that this 42 days will be more memorable for me.

This is all for now guys and have a nice day to all!



Wednesday, 10 June 2009


I don't feel better today. I don't know why. Maybe it's because it's raining just now..not a heavy rain, it's only a little shower but there's no sun. It's so cloudy and it make me feel so weak. I'm still with my pajama just now, watching movie in the living room. I don't feel to do anything. I took me a while to decide if I will blog or not he he he. But here I am, doing some update.

Cucumber eye mask
Mix 1 tsp dried milk powder with 1 tsp cucumber juice. Apply to your eye area and relax for 10 minutes. Wipe off with damp cotton wool.

Enjoy guys and make yourself glow this summer.



Monday, 8 June 2009


I'm so excited now for my vacation. Ten days more to go and I'm flying for Philippines. I already took my appointment for the vaccination (anti-flu). If I will be the one to decide, I don't want to have that vaccination. I already had one last winter and I guess I'm okey with that. But my sister is pushing me to have that anti-flu vaccine because she's afraid of the swine flu. Anyway, I will have it this week. I don't know the details yet but hubby already got the appointment. He will tell me tonight the details.

My luggage is already ready. I already prepared all the stuff that I need to bring like medicines, toiletries and some other stuff. I'm ready now to go:-)


Saturday, 30 May 2009


Yes, it's true. I'm here in the hotel in Baie Comeau. As I said in my previous post that I'm so excited to be in this place. It's a little village but the scenery is very fantastic. We left home 6:00 in the morning and we arrived here at 3:00 in the afternoon. We stop in few places to take some pictures. It was a very long drive but hubby drove halfway and I drove the other half of the trip. We were so lucky because yesterday, we checked the weather forecast it's rain. But fortunately, it's not raining the whole day. We have a little rain just now. We don't mind because we're already here in the hotel. I'm just hoping that we will have a nice day tomorrow.

You can see some of the photo that I took today here.



Thursday, 28 May 2009


I'm so excited now to spend the weekend in Baie Comeau. This is the place that I always ask hubby to visit. It's quite far from where we live so we need to stay one night in a hotel. Hotel is already reserved and the ferry going to Matane. From home to Baie Comeau will take 5 hrs drive plus 20 minutes ferry to cross the river. But we have to stop some places for picture so I guess it will take us 6 or 7 hours drive instead of 5 hours. We will sleep in Baie Comeau then we have to drive to Godbout for the ferry that will take us to Matane. This ferry will take 2 hours to cross the St-Laurent river to Matane. Then from Matane to our place will take 5 hours drive. But as I said, we have to stop many place for picture and I guess we will arrive home almost midnight. We don't mind what time we will arrive home he he he. We love to travel so there will be no problem.

I'm pretty sure that I will take lots of picture. Good that I have 3 spare of battery for my camera. In this way, I don't need to charge which is very hard because I don't have adoptor for the car. Hubby bought me 2 more battery so taht I can use them in Philippines and I have 2 8gigs memory card he he he. Everything will be okey:-)

I will post for sure some photo next week.

By the way, Caroland's Breathtaking Adventure is already finish. I've change the layout and I migrated it to my other account. Friends, can you change the link of my Caroland's Breathtaking Adventure? I really appreciate if you can do it for me...thanks. Pls feel free to visit that blog.



Tuesday, 26 May 2009


I finally renewed the domain of this blog. I received the notice of renewal many times but I didn't do it because I don't have enough money in my paypal. I just renewed a while ago and in addition, I bought another domain for my other blog that I abandoned. I decided to buy domain for that blog and continue updating it. I still have to finalize everything before I will give you the link.

I have to end this now. I have severe headache. I will rest a little before hubby will arrive.



Friday, 22 May 2009


First thing I always do when I wake up in the morning is open my laptop and check my email. Usually, I'm not reading forwarded emails but this time, I don't know why, I was interested in reading one of the forwarded email from my friend zhel. The subject of the email is H1N1 update. I read all the content and suddenly, I felt sad. Why? Honestly, I'm not afraid of that virus. There are already some victims of H1N1 here in Quebec and they keep on telling the people to be very careful with this virus, put a protection etc, etc. But me and hubby always away every weekend and eat in the restaurant, go to public places without protection and so far, so good. We don't feel any of the symptoms of this virus. I'm very confident that I'm healthy and ready to have my vacation in Philippines. But after reading the forwarded email, I felt really sad. I'm afraid that they will quarantine me when I will arrive in Philippines to make sure that I don't have that virus. If this will happen, all the plan will be distroy. Firt week of my arrival is very tight. We will arrive friday night in cebu and flight the next day to CDO for my nephew's baptism and then after a day, we will take the ferry for Tagbilaran, Bohol for the Mega EB of member. This is all in one week, the first week of my arrival. I will just hope that there will be no changes in the plan. If it happen that they have to quarantine me, it can break my vacation. I HOPE THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN. I'm crossing my finger.

Well, I want to share to you the forwarded email that I received.

The Department of Health is officially announcing this evening the first confirmed case of Influenza A (H1N1) in the Philippines .
A female traveler arrived in the Philippines on May 18, Monday, from the United States and Canada . A throat specimen was collected, and was tested at the Research Institute of Tropical Medicine (RITM) on May 20, Wednesday, after she developed fever, sore throat and cough.
Today, RITM confirmed that the specimen tested positive for the novel Influenza A (H1N1) on PCR using the primers sent by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
She was immediately started on an antiviral, Oseltamivir, and given supportive care. At this time, the patient is continuously being monitored. She no longer has fever or cough, but still has sore throat.
The DOH would like to emphasize that there is no community level outbreak in the country and measures are being done by the government to prevent transmission, starting with the quarantine of household close contacts.
The family of the patient has been informed and advised about the situation. We would like to thank them for their cooperation and willingness to comply with the recommendations of the DOH. They were advised to observe self-monitoring, home quarantine, social distancing, proper hygiene and respiratory etiquette procedures.
We appeal to our media partners and the rest of the nation to respect the privacy and anonymity of the patient and her family. Rest assured that any information vital to protect public health and safety will be appropriately shared to those concerned.
The DOH also stresses that the discovery of this first case of Influenza A(H1N1) in the Philippines is something we have been preparing for and is a result of the collective efforts of both public and private sectors as well as the effective surveillance system which we have put in place.
The DOH has already notified the International Health Regulations (IHR) and will submit its official report in 24 hours.
Influenza A (H1N1) is currently affecting 41 other countries with 11,034 cases and 85 deaths. Thus far, the behavior of the virus is to cause generally mild illness and low mortality (<1%) in the affected population.
This development only shows the vulnerability of all countries to the threat of Influenza A (H1N1) which indicates that no nation and no government should be complacent. Thus, we continue to strengthen our systems for surveillance, early detection and management and effective response. We are also closely coordinating with the WHO, other agencies of government and the private sector to effectively combat the virus.
Our stockpiles of Oseltamivir is currently sufficient at 1 million capsules and have been distributed in regional hubs all over the country. We would like to remind the public that Oseltamivir may only be dispensed and taken upon the advice of your doctor.

It’s been a while since I started to love cooking. I love inventing recipes. Actually, I have my own website just for my recipe. I found it very interesting especially if I can invent a new recipe or new design for my cake. Baking is the most interesting part of my cooking. I love baking cakes and cupcakes. I always put icing on a finished cake with my own design. Sometimes I bake cake with hubby’s little niece. She really loves to help me preparing my stuff and sometimes, she’s the one who bake the cake. Same as other kids, she loves to bake cupcakes and cookies. She always asks me when I will make cupcake because she will come here and do it with me. Sometimes I’m feed up of making cupcakes with her because the kitchen is really a mess (you know how kids work). She doesn’t mind the mess she did as long as she enjoyed cooking.

One time, I went to the grocery store and I found Dr. Oetker Shaker. I was very curious when I saw it. I read it very carefully and it’s very interesting. I bought one to try and I really like it. It’s the easiest way to do cupcake without a mess. All you have to do is add milk or water then shake, shake, and shake! And not only that, this Dr. Oetker Shaker is good for our health. It’s 0 trans fat, a source of fibre, and Prebiotics. Hubby loves it and he brings it to his office for his snack. I called my hubby’s niece to try it home and she really enjoy it and I’m so happy because there’s no more mess in my kitchen while we both enjoying it.





Yes! My lumping shanghai are ready to deliver. I just finish awhile ago. I still have make it cool and pack it before I will deliver. So that mean, I will deliver tomorrow afternoon because in the morning, I have to prepare for lunch. Hubby and his officemates will have their lunch here at home tomorrow. My free time tomorrow will be in the afternoon only.

I'm so excited to deliver my shanghai lumpia because of course it's extra income for me he he he. More money for me to buy gifts for my pamangkins he he he.

I started to love fishing after I’m living with my hubby. He loves to go fishing in the summer and he’s the one who introduced me in fishing. Since then, I love it. We did fishing a lot last summer, sometimes with friends and family and sometimes, just the two of us. I am a little bit disappointed that I will miss the fishing this summer but excited at the same time because I will be with my family this summer. To be with them is very important for me than going fishing.

Hubby already bought his fishing permit for this summer. He will spend his summer in the chalet with his cousin. They will go fishing in the night and cut woods in the day. Hubby’s cousin will extend his chalet so they need to cut woods for the extension and hubby will help him to do all that works.

Since they will go fishing in the night, hubby will need to have a good flashlight. I broke his flashlight last summer and it was a good flashlight, very handy and it lights up very well. Since father’s day is fast approaching, I decided to give him a good flashlight like Surefire Flashlights. I know that this flashlight is the best flashlight in the world. I’m sure hubby will be happy to have this as his father’s day gift.




I don't know if you notice that my other blog, CAROLAND'S BREATHTAKING ADVENTURE, is not working anymore. It took me 6 months to decide if I will continue this blog or not. But finally, I decided to continue it but I have to migrate it to my other account. So the link was change. I didn't give the link yet to anybody because I want to buy a domain first before I will give you the correct link so that you can visit this blog. For now, I just want to show you what it looks like and hopefully, I can buy a domain before the end of the week.

Well, I'm late again and have a very late update. Sorry again guys :-( I'm so busy lately. I need to finish all the works inside and outside the house before I will fly to Philippines. We just finished installing the new cenima maison. Installing is not as easy as what we thought. We've change all the cables and to do that, we have to go to the attic and to go there is not easy. You have to crawl and hubby was doing it alone. I felt pity for him. And finally, it's done and we're enjoying now our new cenima maison (home theater). Aside from that, I did my spring cleaning. I washed all the windows, outside and inside, and I washed all the walls. It's a complete cleaning. Everything in the house is already clean and ready for the summer.

Outside, I already started cleaning my flower garden and the spring flowers are already blooming especially my tulips. This year, I started to plant some herbs. Hubby is already complaining he he he because he will take care all my plants alone for 50 days. Poor hubby.

And finally, I'm already counting the days for my vacation. I'm getting more and more excited as days goes by. Oh my! I can't wait to see my family and excited.

This is all the latest update of me and before I end up this post, I would like to greet all the mothers a BELATED HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! I'm so sorry...this is late. It's better late than never:-)

Since summer is fast approaching, mosquito are getting more and more especially during the night. We are lucky in where we live just now because we don’t have much mosquito since we don’t have many trees around. But in the chalet, there are lots of mosquitos and it’s not only an ordinary mosquito but it’s the big mosquito that will suck lots of blood. Hubby and I spend most of our weekend in the chalet and we never enjoy our nights outside and even having barbeque outside until we bought this mosquito magnet trap. Our friend has one and he said that it’s really good. We tried it and we were really amazed how it catches many mosquitos in just a little span of time. It’s very interesting so we bought one for us to have a safe stay in the chalet while enjoying the summer.

Mosquito is very dangerous. They can cause health problem such as West Nile virus and malaria and they can kill you. So it’s better to be safe always and Mosquito magnet traps will protect you from this deadly mosquito.

You can read the mosquito magnet review for more information and learn how it saves many families from viruses that cause by mosquito.




We just arrive from the mall. We bought a new cinema maison (home theater) a YHT-791 7.1 Channel Home Theater in a Box System (New). This will be install in the living room. The old one will be install in the basement where I use as an entertainment area and it's in the basement also where I spend time with my friend having karaoke. I like in the basement because nobody can hear us outside even if we shout out loud while singing he he he and hubby can watch his show in the living room without disturbing.

Now, he has his own cinema maison now but for sure, it's me who will use it often since hubby don't like to loud if he will only watch tv but for movie, we both love the sound with the sound system.

I had a serious conversation with my hubby last night. I don’t know what happen to me. When we talked about my vacation in Philippines before, it was very clear and already final that I will go alone and I agree already. But lately, I feel that I don’t want to spend my summer alone in Philippines. I want to have my hubby with me. I talked to him last night and he’s decision is final. He doesn’t want to go! I was crying and begging him to go with me but the answer is still no. But then, he told me something that makes my eyes so big. He said that we will have a wildwood vacations in New Jersey. Of course, I was very happy and I’m not asking him again to go with me in Philippines. We plan right away the trip. We want to be there in August because we want to see the Radio Disney Concert Series that will be in Wildwood, New Jersey at Morey’s Piers starting the end of June until the end of August. I will arrive from Philippines August 8 and we will fly to New Jersey the week after. The concert is free and many of the top radio Disney artists will be there. So we want to take this opportunity since this is one of my childhood dreams. I’m so excited to see them in the concert. I’m also excited to go to Morey’s Piers and Beachfront Waterparks. One place that interests me most is the New Jersey Water Parks. Oh my! I’m pretty sure that there will be lots of fun there. I can imagine myself playing in the water park like a kid and enjoying the rides at New Jersey amusement parks.

Next year will be Jersey shore beach vacation. It’s already planned for next year.
