Un de mes amis possède une entreprise de camionnage et a fait installé un système de vidéo surveillance. Quelques mois plus tard, il a été victime de vol d'une pièce de machinerie importante sur le terrain extérieur de son entreprise. Grâce à la video surveillance qu'il avait fait installer, il a pu relever le numéro de plaque du camion léger du voleur. Le service de police local a pu identifier le voleur grace celà et mon ami a été capable de poursuivre le voleur en court et de se faire payer la perte de pièce de machinerie. La vidéo surveillance... tout un outil de protection...

I guess most of my fellow bloggers are aware of what happen to Cagayan de Oro City yesterday. There was a severe flooding and unfortunate, my auntie's family are one of the victim. My auntie is still missing until now and my two cousins are seriously injured and one of them needs to have a major operation that will cost 300k pesos. This must be the saddest christmas we have but we didn't lose hope that we can find my auntie alive and we can celebrate christmas with a relief in our hearts.

Pls help us through prayers that we can find my auntie :-( thanks and merry christmas to all..

We have freezing rain just now. Oh boy! I hate it. I almost had an accident last week while driving to work. It was snowing and the road was so slippery. Hubby told me to use the 4 wheels drive but I didn't coz I thought it was okey. Good thing I was able to control the stirring wheel.

I told hubby a while ago to just drop me at work instead of driving coz I'm so afraid now but I don't want. He wanted me to drive carefully's a good practice ..well, goodluck to me :-)

Drivers, drive safely!

We will be celebrating our 10th year wedding anniversary two year from now. We were planning to spend that special day in Hong Kong where we first met and got married. We will stay in the same hotel and in the same room. Sound cool, isn’t it? We wanted to go back on the first day we met until we got married. Visit to the places where we been before and of course spend time visiting places that we never been. I’m so looking forward to this day but hubby’s family can’t spend time with us. They wanted to but they found it too far which is really true. Maybe some of my family can celebrate with us since it’s only 2 hours by plane from where we live to Hong Kong.

We really wanted to have hubby’s family with us so we plan to have a trip in France. I guess it’s a good idea since it’s my childhood dream to visit Paris. The whole family is going and so with my in-laws. We’ve checked the hotel and it cost us a fortune if we will stay in there. My sister-in-law suggested staying in a fully furnished apartment where we can have room for everyone. We’ve checked the vacation rentals paris and we found a very affordable price in a very spacious apartment. Everything is perfect for all of us.

If you plan to stay for a week or two in France, try to check the vacation rentals paris for a place to stay. You can save some money and enjoy the vacation to the max.

Finally, the bar in our basement is already finish. It took us a while to finish the whole basement because as I said in my previous entry, it's only hubby doing it with my help. He's not a professional carpenter but he can do carpenting job just in our house. I'm so lucky to have him because everytime I want something that needs carpenting, he will do it and I don't need to pay :-)

It took us 8 months to finish the basement with the bar. There are still little touch up to do but it can stay like the way it is until January. What is important now is we can have my early christmas party with my Filipino friends this coming Dec 3.

I made the design of the bar and hubby made it to reality. We are so happy with the outcome of our project. Honestly, I really like our bar. We did all the frame of the cap-board and the counter. The glass under the counter is the glass from the old shower that hubby had many years ago. It was in the basement so I told hubby why not use it and save $200.

We tried to clean the glass and take some of the soap scum. We put some cleaning stuff and we were able to get rid of the soap scum. We were so happy that we were able to reuse it.

As you can see, the lights of the two photos are different. It's because the lights change color depending on how you program the system. Hubby paid $300 just for the lights. I didn't expect he will spend that much just for the lights. It was really my plan to have a light like that but I didn't ask him because I know it's to way expensive and he already spent more than $10, 000 for the basement repair. But I was so happy when he told me that he already order the lights with remote control.

All in all, I love my basement :-) I call it my basement because it's me who spend more time in the basement and hubby spend more time in the living room. The basement is my style and the living room is his style:-)

I'm talking about our little bar in our's almost done. It takes us a while to finish completely the basement because we didn't hire a carpenter. 90% of the work was done by my husband. Some friends and relative did help which we really appreciated. Hopefully we can finish the bar before the end of this week and too bad we can't put up some extra lighting because it came out to be very expensive. When hubby asked the guy how much it cost for him to have extra lighting, the guy told him $200+ but when hubby give the exact dimension, it went up to $500! It's too much. We will just leave it like it is and maybe we will find a cheaper lights for the bar..

I will post the photo here as soon as it's all done

One of my co-worker talks about the accessories that she’s using every time she meditates. At first, I really don’t understand what that accessories looks like. She explains to me but I’m not really familiar with it. She really wanted me to try it because she knows that I have so much stress at work. She gave me Tibetan Singing Bowls as a birthday gift. I like it, the looks, but still didn’t know what’s the significant in that bowl. She explained me again and then I tried at home. It really works. Now I understand why she really wanted me to use it. The sound of the singing bowl makes me feel so relax, very peaceful and gives me a very calming sensation in my body. This thing is very useful to those people who have stress and don’t have peace of mind. This will help rejuvenate the mind and being, giving them a feeling of joy, satisfaction and inner peace.

I want to try the Crystal Singing Bowls and Gongs too. I will buy them soon as a Christmas gift for me.

I was so shocked yesterday when hubby came here at work and wanted me to go out the resto. He wanted me to se the car. OMG! first thing that I had in my mind when I saw the car was hubby had an accident. I asked him what happen and he told me everything. He was eating his breakfast at the resto when an old woman came to him and said that she hit his car. Hubby was so lucky because the guy that saw the old woman hitting hubby's car is happen to he hubby's friend. He told the woman that the owner of the car. The woman had no choice but approach hubby.

I felt better after I heard the story. I don't mind the car. What is important is hubby's safety. It worth $4,000 repair. Insurance is paying all the damage but we will be using the car of the garage, maybe tonight for 1 week.

Yes I can tell that these moose are so lucky that I'm not a hunter. As I said in my post in Through My Lens, we drove around Canton de l'Est to see take some pictures of the trees. We drove through the country road to see the beauty of Autumn.

We drove below the speed limit because we wanted to enjoy looking the beautiful trees and hoping to see a nice spot for photo. And good thing we did that because if we drove to fast, for sure we will have a big accident because these two moose cross the street.

We stopped and hubby try to stop the car behind while I'm enjoying taking picture of them. They never attack us in fact, they looked at me as if they wanted to pose for me :-) I'm too scared they might attack me...I just click click my camera without making any adjustment. I guess I didn't make the fucos right as you see them dark.

Anyway, I didn't mind what my photo look like. All I wanted is to capture them for a souvenir. They stayed in the middle of the road for almost 5 minutes. Yes they are very lucky becuause that week was the hunting week for moose. If hunters were there, I'm sure they shoot them right away.

I'm not so sure if today is the first day of falls or yesterday :-) All I know is it's already falls. I'm so excited now that it's already Fall season because I know that after Falls, it's WINTER - my favourite season. Most of my friends said that I'm crazy for liking winter while all of them hates it....

I'm looking forward to photograph the trees that changes colors. Quebec is one of the place that know to have a nice trees during falls. We been to the chalet two weeks ago and the trees already started to change the colours and hubby was there last weekend too. He told me that it's not yet fully change. Tomorrow, we will be going to my friend's place (in the forest). I'm so excited to see my filipina friends and take a walk in the forest. And of course, I will tag with me my camera :-)

Well I'm back from a long rest of blogging. I been too busy lately from work and some work in my flower garden. We did some outing too with hubby and friends. We been to most of the summer activities here. For the first time I've watched live concert of Elton John and Rod Steward for free. It was really a memorable experience for me.
Talking about my flower garden, I'm so proud to tell you that I have a nice flower garden :-) I will share the photo soon coz I'm using my phone just now.

Have a nice day everyone

Today is the grand opening of Quiznos Sub where I work. We had two weeks of formation started last monday until the next two weeks. We are 4 that already had experience in the same resto so boss ask us to help train the new one. I'm doing the opening always starting 9:00 am to 4 pm. I love my working hours because I'm only working in the day time during weekdays and I'm off in the weekend. In this way, I can still enjoy the summer, doing barbeque every night and go out in the weekend. Boss confirm me this morning that I will do the opening always..yes!!!!! I really love my hours..

Now that I'm working, it doesn't mean I will stop blogging. I will still continue as long as I can.

That's a promise :-)


Tuesday, 21 June 2011


We just finish taking out the grass in the area where i will put another flower garden. We thought that we will not be able to do all of them tonight since it's quit big but we did it in just 20 minutes. When our neighbor saw us working in the grass, he came right away and help us. It's so nice from him doing such thing. They are very nice couple and they always look in our house every time we are away...

Back to my flower garden, I'm looking forward that hubby will finish the box so that I can start planting the flowers that I bought last weekend. I already planted 3 flowers that will attract birds and butterfly and I bought more. I will for sure share to you the photo of my flower garden as soon as it's done :-)



My boss called me yesterday to inform me that the official date of the grand opening of the resto will be this coming June 29, that means, I will start working few days before the grand opening which he also confirm to me. I'm so happy and excited that I finally start working and nervous at the same time knowing that I will be working with my boss all the time.

Just now, I'm enjoying every second of the remaining days that I will be staying home because I know that I will be working fulltime but the good thing is that, I'm not working in the weekend and night so I will have the same free time as hubby.

When I checked the weather forecast last night, it says rain with thunder storm today until Saturday and Sunday sunny and warm. I don't mind have rain for 4 days as long as there will be no rain on Sunday because I will be hosting a brunch party that will be held in our backyard. There will be 30 people including me and hubby that is why we wanted to held it outside.

I woke up too early this morning and clean my garden before the rain will pour. At 7:00 am, I started to cut the grass (not minding the neighbors if they were still asleep) so that it's all done before the rain. Well, I didn't see any sign of rain since this morning until now. The sun is so strong and too warm. I check the weather forecast again and voila! no rain today but tomorrow until Sunday :-( I hope this will change. I don't want to have rain this sunday. What should we do if it will rain? The patio is not enough for 30 people and we don't have much space inside the house. Well, the basement is already finish , some will stay in the basement and some will stay in the living room hehehhe

I'm still hoping to have no rain this sunday.

Exactly 1 week from now will be the official summer season. People here are already doing some summer activities including me :-). Last weekend, we celebrated the 113th Independence Day in Philippines with the Filipino Organization here. We were so lucky that the weather cooperate us. It was so nice day and we had a chance enjoying the pedal l'eau.
I really enjoy my day.Thanks to my friend Arlene for taking me to the lake.

When I saw this guy playing guitar under the tree, I grab my camera right away but I made a mistake in the programmation of my camera and it turns out dark. It was too late when I realized it. I change right away hoping to get one nice but the canon boat arrived at the same time I click the shutter. I don't know if the composition is nice but it's one thing I'm sure of, it's the right one for my Mellow Yellow Monday entry :-) happy Monday to all!

We will be celebrating Father’s Day this coming weekend. I will be hosting a brunch here in our backyard with 30 people. I invited all family of my husband and all his cousins’ family. We will be celebrating their special day here with all the kids too. This will be a big party and I’m looking forward for it. I’m so afraid of the weather if it will rain or not. I hope the weather will cooperate if not, we will have the brunch inside the house. Good thing that the basement is already finish so I have enough space for 30 people. I’m sure we will be having much fun in this coming celebration. This will also serve as a reunion though we always see each other but not as a group.

I been thinking since before what could be the best gift that I can give to my husband for the Father’s Day. I think he almost have everything he wanted. Opps! I think I know what I will give to him, a bowl ticket maybe? I found some at has liberty bowl tickets, red rocks amphitheatre tickets, and marcus amphitheater tickets in a very affordable price. I don’t know which one he will like. I have to ask him tonight because I need to buy it before the Father’s day so that I can give it to him during the brunch. I’m preparing gifts also to all the father’s that will be here in the brunch.

I been to Tulips Festival in Ottawa few times already but I never had a chance to visit the Canada's Parliament. We always have something everytime we been there. But last year, we already schedule that visit. And the best thing we did is going up to the "Peace Tower" amazing :-)

This photo is perfect for Sign, Sign.

There was a strong thunder storm early this morning. The strong thunder woke me up at 7:00 a.m. I was so scared especially when the electricity shut up. I got up right away and close all the window. I was so scared and I run to the basement. I stayed there until the thunder storm slow down. After a few minutes, the electricity came back. I was still sleepy but I was not able to sleep back. I just open the TV and watch the news just to make sure that there will be no bad weather since I was alone in the house. Hubby left for work too early so that he can finish at 3:00 pm. He's here just now, anyway.

At 9:00 am, the sun started to came out. I was so happy and relieved. I went to my flower garden to clean a little and i'm so lucky that I didn't see any worms hehehe. Sun is still strong until now and I don't see any trace of rain to pour as what they forecast for today. I hope it will not rain before 6:00 pm because I put some traitment for the weeds and it should not have water for 6 hours.

Just now, I'm enjoying here in our patio, blogging and taking cold drink :-) I have to enjoy every second of this time while I'm not yet working. Anytime this month, my boss will call me to work back.

This is the first time I'm joining ABC WEDNESDAY. My photo for this week is T-raffic light. This was taken last February during the snow storm in our place with freezing rain. We just drove around the area to see if there were damage but thanks God that everything was okey. I had my camera with me and hubby as well. We both love taking pictures especially after the storm.

I keep on searching photo in my HD which is related to reflection but I can't find one in my recent photos. I tried checking my external HD where I keep all my photos from 2004 and luckily I found one. I took this photo (photo above) last 2007 in Ontario during our 21 days drive with our motorhome. As far as I remember, this is beaver lake in Ontario, Canada.

Visit Weekend Reflection to see more photos.

I know, I was so silent for few days it's not because I feel lazy to blog but we had so busy week since last weekend until yesterday. My friend was with us at home last weekend and she help me cleaning my flower garden. It was so nice last weekend so we decided to work outside. It feels so great wearing my short pants for the first time this year.

I was cleaning my tulips garden. The strong wind damage my tulips. 50% of them fall so I took the flowers and put it in my flower vase. There were lots of dandelion too so we tried to take them out. As usual, I'm so afraid of the earthworm and I didn't know that my friend is worst than me. We tried to ignore them just to finish our work but we didn't succeed. We were so afraid and we decided to stop. Hubby drove us to the ice cream bar. It's not were I use to go but it was good. The ambience is so nice and they have wifi that give them a plus factor :-)

The next day was raining so we stayed home still with my friend. We did some cleaning in the basement and we cook and cook and eat and eat :-)

After she left, I started transferring all the stuff that were in our living room and dining room that goes to the basement. We were so disappointed that the electrician cancelled his appointment 2 times. Electricity in the basement is not yet done but the heater is already installed and working.

Just now, we're here in Montreal for a visit. We will stay here for 5 days. It was raining so hard in our way here. Hubby drove halfway and I drove halfway too. The rain poured so hard when I drove the highway. I started to panic because I see nothing in the road but hubby kept on encouraging me. The rain slowed down after 1 hour until we arrived here. I hope we will have a nice weather in our stay here so that I can get nice photo.

Have a nice day to all ..and more updates next time :-)

Since summer is on the way now, I started to put all my winter clothes in our cedar room. I took all my spring clothes and summer clothes in my closet. But before I file them, I tried each one of them to see if it’s still fit me. I know I gain weight but I didn’t know that I gain that much. Most of them didn’t fit me anymore. It means only one thing, SHOPPING. I’m so thankful that hubby is very understanding. I didn’t even ask him. He’s the one who told me to shop for my cloths. I’m not really a fan of online shopping before until I tried once and it really convinces me to shop online. I like it because I don’t need to drive around especially if I’m alone. I really hate to walk around the mall and shop if I’m alone which happen most of the time because hubby is at work and he only give me the money to shop. Sometimes I go with my friend but this time, she’s in Philippines for her father’s burial. So I shop online and I found this comfortable loungewear. I’m a fan of loungewear. I already have some but half of them didn’t fit me anymore. I found the one I want and I’m just waiting hubby to arrive and we will buy this comfortable loungewear online.




I guess I already mentioned here before that I'm no longer working since Feb 1 this year. I'm not really worried because I'm still receiving enough amount every 15 days for my unemployment insurance. I'm not thinking of working in the summer time but then my previous boss called me this morning and ask me if I'm still interested in working with him. I don't know why I said yes right away hehehe. I love my work but I don't know if we two will go along well. I didn't work with him before and I heard a lot of bad feedback of him. Well, I already said yes. I will just try and earn more money. Anyway, I knew very well my job so I don't think there is a problem...only that I can't enjoy the summer anymore.

Well goodluck to me:-) ....I might start working middle of June. This is a blessing so I have to grab it before I will loss it.

Have a nice day everyone.



Thursday, 19 May 2011


I just realize today that I have too much candles in the house. I just love buying different scents and styles of candles. I was hesitated of buying them before because hubby doesn’t want to have many candles in the house. We always have candle light dinner and we’re using a candle stick which is very dangerous if we leave them unattended. We love to have candle in the table when we have supper so I always check for scented candles in the glass that we can leave it in the table after we finish eating to get rid of the bad smell in the kitchen.

Since I started working, I always buy candles every time I stop by at the candle store. My candle collection is getting more and more that I don’t know where to put them. It’s just that I love looking at them and smell their scent. Next week will be my friend’s birthday. Like me, she’s collecting scented candles too. I’m thinking of buying her a scentsy candle. I’m too lazy to go around different candle store so I will buy scentsy online. It’s safe and hassle free. I’m pretty sure that she will love it and I will buy some for me too.



Tuesday, 17 May 2011


I recieved a text message from my brother asking me to call him as soon as I can. I called him right away this morning and he told me that he needs my help financially because he will undergo a gallbladder surgery this coming Sunday. It really cost him a lot and of course I will help him even though I'm not working but I can find a way to help him. I just hope that he will have a successful operation and no complication.

One thing also that make me sad is, this Sunday will be the Elidance grand show which I will so the belly dance with some other dancer. I will be dancing at the same hour of his operation. So sad :-(

Anyway, I know God is always there and help my brother during the operation. God is good.

Stick that on your power cord!

Well, I guess most of you know what is in the picture. But for those who don't know, this is a full roof size chandelier. I was very impress when I saw this lights and so with the rest of the tourists that visited this place. Too bad, I don't have a big house where I can install this kind of chandelier :-).

I just want to give an update to our basement. All the flooring is done and the closet is done too. The electricity will be done this Wednesday. I'm so looking forward to stay in the basement especially now that summer is coming. If the weather is too warm, we will just stay in the basement because it's cool there and we don't need air condition. I will give you more updates in my next post.

HAPPY MYM to all!

One of the things I miss in our basement is watching movies. That place serves as my entertainment room. I spent most of my time with my friends there. We did karaoke, watch movie or just simply having a girl talks. But since we are doing the renovation just now, I stop watching movies and karaoke. We can do it here in the living room since we have a big TV and a home theatre but I don’t want to disturb hubby if he’s watching games or news. The basement is almost done. Hubby is working in the floor just now and it will be finish today but I don’t think the TV and home theatre will be install next week. We still have to buy a new LCD TV and we are thinking of doing the TV furniture by ourselves. That means, I can’t watch movie before 3 weeks.

I heard a lot about Netflix Online DVD. Then I told myself, why not try this since I have a big screen computer in our computer room. In that way, I can’t disturb hubby if he’s watching his favourite game. I tried it last night and oh boy, it really works. I’m still using their 1 month trials and I’m pretty sure that I will subscribe Netflix because it’s very affordable and they have all the movies that I want and TV program as well. I don’t need to drive to the DVD rental store. Netflix online DVD is really the best.

It's been a while that I'm thinking of switching to FidoCity plan. I'm already a Fido user but my plan is only 100 mins incoming calls and I paid $4 for 25 international text messaging plus a value pack that includes unlimited internet in my mobile, call display with name display, voicemail box, and 2500 mins of call forwarding. Just this morning, I change my plan. I'm now in FidoCity which unlimited incoming and outgoing calls and I have unlimited international text messaging which is very cool. I can text my family anytime unlimited. For only $5 more everymonth, I got all the benefits that I wanted.

To all my friends outside Canada, watch out :-) I can text you now anytime, anywhere :-)

I'm talking about our basement. Yes, it's almost done. The ceiling in the bedroom is finish and the lights. All left to do is the flooring in the basement. Tomorrow, we will try to do the ceiling in the living room and the flooring will be thursday. Hubby will work Monday to Wednesday so the flooring will be late but I can wait :-) 

The color in the bedroom is little boy blue. It looks like light blue but that's what they call it "little boy blue". In the living room, I choose "wishper white" color. I want to have a light color in the wall because the basement is always  dark and I wanted to have a chocolate brown furniture which will match perfectly. The accessories will be apple green :-) Oh, I can't wait to see it.
