Today is my Papa's 77th birthday but it's so sad that we can't celebrate this special day with him for he's celebrating it with Papa God and his angels. I know he's happy up there but sometimes I can't stop myself wishing that he's still here with us, guiding us as he always did when he was still alive and until now I feel that he's always guiding me because I never stop asking him to do so. I never stop talking to him until now. When I'm down, I always talk to him for guidance and of course to Papa God too and they never failed me.

You know how much I miss you. I miss you so much and I love you.

We spend our long weekend here in the chalet of Hubby's cousin. I really like this place because it's very tranquil- far from the city. The chalet is located in the middle of the forest almost in the top of the mountain. No electricity but fortunately, my mobile phone is working here since I change my telephone least I'm still updated what's going on through social media.
We woke up 5:30 in the morning and went for a walk and jog while they were chatting in the kitchen. I'm quite afraid of  wild animals but with Peggy with me, I felt safe. I run for only 1 km, not much but I felt good.

Well, I need to go back outside and enjoy the nature while they're working the roof of the chalet..HAVE A BLESSED LONG WEEKEND TO ALL

We spent 3 days and 2 nights at Chateau Albert in Caraquet, New Brunswick. It was so nice to experience the life of the Acadien in New Brunswick during the 18th century. We stayed in the old style hotel where there's no aircondition and no elevator as well. We had supper at the hotel which is included in the package and a show.

We been to Caraquet Restaurant the next day for supper. They have all kind of seafoods. The hotel receptionist told us that that's the best restaurant for seafoods in town. We were waiting our order when Jean François Breau -my favorite singer, pass our table. I told my hubby that my idol pass hehehe he knew it already so no jealousy happen. He ask my fon and told me to go so he can picture me with my idol. I was so happy that kilig like a teenager.

Photo below are the 3 artists that will be having concert that night..the first guy next to me is my idol..

I believe in the saying "health is wealth".

Ten years ago, my weight was 95 lbs. It was the time when I first met my husband. I don't say that I was in a good health at that time but it was my ideal weight. 1 month after I'm living with my husband, I gained a lot of weight then I started to panic. I did try dieting but I guess I didn't do the proper diet that it cause a severe headache. Then I continue gaining weight until I reached 130 lbs. It worries me a lot. I invested a good treadmill and it really help. I lost 3 lbs in a month or two? Not much until one of my friend told me about drinking warm lemon in the morning while the stomach is still empty. Wow! Effective! I lost almost 10 lbs. I'm now 120. Lossing 10 lbs is really amazing. Now, I'm trying fresh vegetables and fruit juice atleast once a day. I really wanted to loss another 10 lbs. Goodluck to me :-)

(multi-tasking in our patio while waiting for the birds to photograph)

It was a nice sunny afternoon when I install myself in our patio. I was still sick so I didn't go to work. I feel worst if I just stay inside the house so I did go out since the weather was nice. Our patio is really my favorite place during summer. Hubby installed lots of bird houses and bird feeders in our backyard. I planted lots of beautiful flowers too. Most of them are flowers that attract the birds that is why we have lots of birds in our backyard. 

I always bring my camera, my mcbook pro, my iPad2 and my phone in our patio. As soon as there's birds coming, I prepare my camera right away and took a picture of the birds. Most of the time I got them very close and most of them are yellow finch. We have different kinds of birds in our backyard but only the yellow finch that is brave enough to go to the feeder close to the table. 

How I wish I will be lucky next time to capture the blue jay bird that use to come when we're not around. Our neighbor saw blue jay birds that eat the foods in the feeder. Crossing my fingers to see one soon.

(Golden Finch Bird in our Patio)

It's been 5 days now that I'm sick. I have on and off fever, colds and cough. I was force to rest and not working for 2 days. It was not easy for me for the last 3 days, just stayed in the house, slept and no appetite at all. I started to go out yesterday to get some fresh air. The weather was so nice and sunny. I stayed most of the time in our patio with my laptop, iPad, my celfon and of course my camera to capture the birds. 

I was so lucky yesterday because nobody in the neighborhood mown their lawn. Birds were not afraid and they came very close to me to feed themselves. I captured golden finch (in the photo above), turtledove, swallow birds and sparrow bird. I even captured the cat of our neighbor chasing the birds. I felt so upset with the cat but I didn't do anything bad to him. 

I took some pictures again today with the birds but they are all the same birds that come everyday but I still love to picture them. I did a little of gardening too and wanted to help hubby working  our driveway but I didn't because I'm still weak. The fever is back again and I have to go back to work tomorrow. I took some medications but I don't know what's going on. If fever will come back tomorrow then I guess it's time for me to see the doctor. I hope I will be okey tomorrow and continue to work in the rest of the week.

I'M BACK :-)

Yes, I'm back now from my 1 month vacation in my hometown Philippines. I left Canada April 19, 2013 and left Philippines May 19, 2013. It was exactly 1 month and hoping to extend my vacation but my job didn't permit me. One month is not enough for me. I need more to catch up with my family on the 4 years that I didn't see them in person.

My stay with my family was really fun. I met all of them with their kids. We spend most of our time especially with the kids. I was so happy to see all of them.

It was not all happiness that I feel during my vacation. I had a feeling of disappointment too with my house that I started to pay. I cancelled my transaction of that house because of bad service. I expected too much of that house but it end up nothing. Yes, there was a disappointment but I didn't have a regret of canceling it. Maybe it was not meant for me and I will proceed to my first plan. I will construct my dream house in my own land soon. Now that I'm back here, I will try to save my money as much as I can for my house.

More update in my next post. I still need to do washing. Have a blessed Sunday to all!

Friday night is our Starbuck's night. We always have our supper at the mall and shop if we need to and meet with friends at Starbucks, having our favorite coffee while chitchating.

We arrived at Starbucks too soon so hubby and I were facebooking while waiting for them. I'm so glad that the iPad mini that I gave him is very useful. He can play or browse in the net if he's tired of listening to our chichat ;-)

(Photo was taken last summer)

I started preparing my luggage now for my trip to Philippines. I bought some "the cars" stuff tonight for my nephew's coming birthday party. My theme plan was Spider but I had a hard time finding spider's stuff. I found some but it was too expensive while "the cars", I was able to buy it at dollar store.

I'm getting too excited now. Two more weeks and I will see my family again after 4 years. I'm looking forward to hug and kiss them and tell them how much I love them. I just hope that everything will go fine in this trip.

Photo above is my entry for Skywatch Friday.

Yes! 23 days more to go and I'm flying back to my homeland and spend time with my family. It's been 4 years since the last time I saw them in person. I miss them so much.

I have lots of plan in my mind that I don't know where and what to start :-) but as far as I know , my sister already made an appointment to bank the day right after my arrival. Oh boy..I don't think I can have a good rest in my first week there..anyway, whatever happen, I'm still very excited :-)

My friend invited us to their new build chalet last weekend. We drove 1 and a half hour to reach the place. Going there is a little bit complicated because the place is still new and the GPS can't find it. They gave us the instruction on how to reach the place but still we got lost and the worst is, my phone don't have signal in the area. Good thing that my friend's phone that was with us was working and we were able to call my friend and finally, we found the right road.
 (the foods)

As usual, she prepared lots of yummy foods that I think, it's good for 20 person :-) and we were only 8. 
I felt so bad for myself because I did cheat for my diet for 2 days ( I always have 1 day cheating day for a week) and blame it to her :-)

 (crispy pata)

The crispy pata was really crispy and yummy. This broke my diet. I ate a lot of this crispy pata dipped with sukang pinakurat (fermented vinegar from Philippines) Oh boy, that was really good.


And finally, the dessert. This is the only thing that I'm proud of myself. I didn't eat the dessert because I was so guilty that I did cheat twice. Temptation was very close but I was able to stop.

I'm trying to get rid of my unwanted hairs. I started in 2004 taking out all the unwanted hair in my face. It took 4 years before its totally gone. Then next was under my armpit and it took few years too. Now it's my 3rd times in my legs. I have it done once a month which is not bad at all. I'm happy that hubby is so supportive of what I'm doing.

It's been 3 days now that we have a very nice weather, 6 ,7 and 6 degree celcius. Yesterday with the 7 degree celcius and a just a little shower of rain make the snow melt so fast. Today is 6 and sunny. I don't know if I will be happy or not, happy because it's getting warmer and sad because snows are melting and I really love to have snow all over. Anyway, whatever the temperature we have, it's okey with me as long as there's no nature disaster that will come. I will just enjoy and be thankful every day whatever temperature we have.

Our local autobus has free wifi. This this quit interesting eh? I'm taking the autobus just now going to my friend's house. I didn't feel to drive in the city with all the traffic so i prefer to take the bus. I will sleep there tonight since hubby is not here and we will go to church tomorrow together. This is my first time sleeping in another house that is close to my place :-) I'm just lucky that I have a very understanding husband.

Well, i have tomend this now. I still have something to surf in the net..HAVE A NICE WEEKEND TO ALL

Severe headache strike again. I finish 2:00 pm today because of my headache. Good that we found somebody to replace me. It's really hard for me to leave that soon because I wanted to have more hours to pay for the no-pay sick leave that I took before christmas but I can't handle the pain anymore. I just had a little nap and I feel a little better now with the pill that I took. I hope this pain will be gone tomorrow coz I really don't want to cut my hours again.

I didn't wash my car since autumn. We're always have something and we didn't have time to wash the car and we're not really thinking of it :-) Today is a very nice day so I decided to finish earlier at work and then drive straight to the car washing. It feels so good after, no more worries of my cloths to get dirty every time I get in and out of the car. 

I'm relaxing now watching tv and blogging at the same time. I had another big day today though I finish at 3:00 pm but I didn't stop since then. After the car wash, I finish taking off my christmas decor in the dining room and the kitchen. Now is just relax and wait for hubby's call.



Tuesday, 8 January 2013


Hubby left 4:15 am this morning. We woke up 3:30 and I wasn't able to sleep back until 6:00 am. I received few calls from hubby during his stop-over in Toronto and I'm talking to him in the phone just now while blogging but I still miss him. Though we're talking in the phone many times, I'm still longing his presence. I'm looking forward his come back next week.

This afternoon is suppose to be the flight of my husband to Regina but he called me at work telling me that he missed his flight. It was clearly written in his itinerary that his flight will be at 13:00 and he taught that it will be at 15:00. There was not much flight to Regina so he took the 6:00 am flight for tomorrow.  I feel pity for him that he loss 1 day of his work but I'm happy at the same time because I have 1 more night with him and I will be here tomorrow when he will leave. I was not here this afternoon when he left the house and I don't like it. I want that I will be here when he will leave because in that way, I can hug and kiss him while saying goodbye. 

I hope that he will not miss his flight again tomorrow :-) Good that his boss is so understanding and he didn't even say anything to hubby but just laugh and said "it's okey, it happen sometimes".



Sunday, 6 January 2013


We left from the hotel at 8:30 in the morning. We stop at my friend's house in Trois-Réviere and it took us 1 and a half hour to reach their place because we drove 90 km/hr in the highway due to the heavy snow fall. The road was not very well clean. We stayed almost 45 mins only because we still have another 1 and a half hour to drive back home.

I knew that hubby was already feed up driving for 2 days but I can't offer him to drive because I'm still have that fear I had after my accident.

He will leave tomorrow to Regina, so i have no choice but to drive myself to work until he will come back :-(

We just arrive home and thankful that we arrive safe.

These are some few stuff that I bought for my family. I didn't have much time to check for sales so I bought most of these stuff in their regular price. I got a good deal of the toothpastes and the white slippers. I paid .25 cents each of the toothpastes at the pharmacy and .25 cents each of the slippers at Old Navy. The slippers are quite big, size 9 and 10 but I still bought them coz I know some of my relatives can use it and my mom can have 1 too. 

We just drop the box this afternoon here in Montreal and I hope it will arrive home before me. I just feel  so disappointed when I knew this afternoon that the 2 boxes I sent last Oct were shipped just last month. I just wondering why until now they didn't receive it yet and now I knew. I hope this box will arrive on time.

I was not feeling well yesterday after work. I felt dizzy and had unbearable headache. I didn't take any pills because I really don't know what's going on with me. I just rest and was able to sleep at 5:00 p.m. Hubby was having dinner with his friend and before he leave, he make sure that I was okey, he covered my feet well so that I will not feel cold. I slept so well and didn't notice when he came back. He woke me up and gave me some medication. Then I slept back until 1:00 a.m. It took me a while before I slept back. 

I was surfing in the net while I was awake and I found a very interesting site, the Website Monitoring. I'm interested in their services. I guess I will try this because I'm planing to have my own photography website. I have to read this carefully.



Thursday, 3 January 2013


Oh boy! I really had a hard time to get off from the bed this morning. After the long vacation I had, I don't feel to go back to work but I have to. I need to save money as much as possible for my trip to Philippines to visit my family. I want to have extra money so that I can buy anything they will want. I never seen them for 4 years so I want to have a memorable vacation.

I'm so excited now...3 more months to go...yopiii!

The new year's party last night finished earlier than usual. We didn't have much to clean because we were using disposable plates and utensils. We tried to sleep early but we end up sleeping at 3 o'clock in the morning. I was crying the whole night due to severe muscle and stomach pain. Going to the hospital is the last thing I will do. I hate going to the hospital because when i see or just even thinking of it, it flashes in my mind the night of my birthday two years when my husband rushed me to the hospital and they sent me right away to the ER. I took a pill to make me sleep but it took me a while to fall asleep.

I woke up 11:00 in the morning, ate cereal and back to sleep until 4:00 pm. Hubby woke me up because he's too worried. We went for a coffee and did the box to send to my family. I'm still tired and maybe go to bed soon so to gain energy for work tomorrow.


Tuesday, 1 January 2013


Last year has so much ups and down for me but still I'm so thankful not only the blessing that I got but also the downside that happen to me because it give me a lesson and a challenge at the same time. So this year, I wish to have more blessings to come and learn the mistakes from the past, to forget and forgive, happiness for the family and good health.
