I never thought that my love for blogging will make me earn money online. It all started about two years ago when I wanted to have an online diary to be able to document everything about me, my husband and our little angel. As I was into it, I met friends along the way who introduced me to the world of paid blogging. Right now, I am into almost every paid blogging site including bloggerwave. I get to earn while enjoying still the benefits blogging has to offer. Who ever said the one can't have her cake and eat it too obviously haven't tried blogging yet.

time for giving

Oh goody, it’s the second day of December. Can you believe it?!

Oh my, oh my! Twenty three days to go before Christmas and I am not even half way on my Christmas shopping wish list yet. Not even 1/4 if I may say. Ayayay. I need to get things done - asap.

To double check, I re-wrote my Christmas Shopping list and as a final count, I have 25 godchildren. Jon, on the other hand, has 23. So thats 48 gifts solely for our “inaanaks”. Count in gifts for pamangkins, titos and titas and friends. The list will number to about a hundred or so. Can you imagine that? Oh well, as I would always say, Christmas always means spending as it’s a time for giving. No matter how other people would contest my thinking, yun pa rin yun. But as you all know, Christmas is my favorite holiday of all time too. I just love giving out gifts to everybody. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. I bet Jon doesn’t feel the same way though. LOL.

Tomorrow, I’ll be officially on a spending spree. No better excuse to spend than now, it’s the holidays! So let’s all swipe to our heart’s content. :P

Happy Shopping!!! :D

political adventure

Where were you last Thursday during the Manila Pen bruhaha?

I was with Sophia at Gymboree Alabang painting pigs and sheeps with our bare hands when I overheard a dad on the phone talking about a coup in Manila Pen. So, the ever tsismosa that I am, I eavesdropped, LOL. That was how I found out of how Trillanes, our elected senator, walked out of his Makati hearing and walked his way to Manila Pen with Gen. Danny Lim and former Vice President Teofisto Guingona. Note that while walking, Trillanes was calling on people to join him and that it was time to call for a change.

Oh Gawd, he did it again.

As soon as I entered the car, I called Jon and asked him about what was happening. He did not know a thing, haha. This was at around 12:30pm already. We got home and I immediately turned on the TV and there it was all over the news. Trillanes was inside Manila Pen with the other Magdalo soldiers and a few other individuals. I was glued to the TV since. I watched the news the whole day. I was up to date to what was happening. From the time they gave the 3pm deadline to the tank barging on Manila Pen's door lobby, I was watching. I didn't expect the latter though. Who would have? Goodness.

When Trillanes stepped down and surrendered, I can't help but feel sorry for him. He failed - again. This time, he made "damay" pa more people other than the already poor Magdalo soldiers. The guy badly wants change obviously but I guess change cannot always be achieved this way. We cannot have the Erap-Gloria 2001 stunt all the time you know. But I just have to say that I admire Trillanes' courage, period. Although I guess he already got the message clear by now - people have got better things to do and mind than join him call for a change in the government at these hard times.

revive me

I've neglected this blog for awhile, for a long time actually. We've manged to go to OZ and back without updating this one. Anyway, with my new time management scheme, I'm hoping to be able to revive this blog and make it live up to its title. Watch out.

telling everyone

Who wouldn't want to show and tell the whole world about the new member of the family? As a mom, I know how it is to be uber proud of our bundle of joy. After all, I am one proud and doting mother to a two year and a half old little girl. She is my world, my life and my everything. If I could do it over again, I would definitely send out handy baby announcement cards to everyone I know the time she came to light up our lives. I didn't get to do this actually to my regret. But I would definitely love to the next time I become a mom again which I hope to be really sooner.

I did however got the chance to send out baby photo invitations for our little girl's baptism to close friends. Oh, and how they loved them! I got all sorts of compliments. The photo birth invitations were a hit. They had a very personal touch so I find them as the perfect way to tell our family and friends about our much awaited awaited beautiful baby. Don't you think so too?

Sophia's first ever school program is done yesterday. Toddlers Unlimited had their "Teenie Halooweenies" Program yesterday and here's the link to the very SHORT video I took from my digital camera. I was the photographer while Jon was the videographer, doting parents I may say :)
Pictures to follow :)

she's back

The little girl is back to school after two long weeks. She badly missed her friends and teachers. Here are her pics this morning on the way to school...

I can't wait to get these for me and Sophia ....

Thursday, October 11, 2007


I'm trying to squeeze in blogging as the little girl takes her afternoon nap. She isn't fully well still. Far from it, actually. She had fever again this morning. I've been closely monitoring her now and so far no fever again. I hope tuloy tuloy na or I'll lose my mind already. I really hate the feeling when Sophia gets sick. I know all mommies can relate to me.

IF Sophia gets hot again when she wakes up later, I'm definitely taking her to the hospital na for blood tests etc... Hay, I HOPE wag naman. She has a bad cough by the way. She almost always vomits after she eats because uubuhin siya. Hay, pumayat na nga :(

I'm now keeping my fingers crossed, hoping for the best. Will let you all know.
