Havaianas Slippers from Maria

I consider myself a contest-addict. And because of that I won in My Maria’s Contest.
I won myself a pair of Havaianas slippers just by guessing Maria’s time of birth. The mechanics was simple but you need to have pure luck in order to win. Because a lot of people joined the contest and I didn’t even get the right answer but my answer is the closest.

Here is my prize:

Thank you so much Maria. You can visit her site Basta Igat, SIKAT! And find out that she is absolutely a very stunning lady. Aside from having a pretty face, she is also a very intelligent gal.

Right now she is having a “Thank you for Voting Contest” and you might wanna join to win a new pair of Havaianas slippers.

Panda Hotel - Hongkong

I'm glad we stayed at Panda Hotel when we were in Hongkong. The rooms were BIG and clean.
They have little refrigerators to keep your food fresh and your drinks cold.

They also have a safety box in order to keep your valuables safe.

My friends brought with them noodles in a cup and instant coffees so hot water is of great help to ease our hunger.

And you won't get bored in your room because they also have entertainment showcase (lolz), just the cable TV but atleast they have AXN and star movies.

I won't ever forget my BED. The bed was soooooo soft, after walking all day long in Hongkong and Macau, it feels great to sleep in a good bed.

TWO THUMBS UP for Panda Hotel in Tsuen Wan, Hongkong.

Mommy Moments : Motherhood

mommy moments

Last Friday of May, and last post for May for Mommy Moments.
I think I miss a lot of Mommy Moments post for this month and I am sorry Mommies.

Being a mother is one of life's greatest secret. Motherhood is more than that. I am a mother that's why I can understand children more than anyone else. Right? We know why they are crying, what they want, what do they need, etc.

Motherhood for me sums up on this picture:

Mommy Rubz Merry Month

I was able to get intouch withMommy Rubz because of yapatoots giveaway. It was very generous of Mommy Rubz to sponsor such blogversary contest. I love her site because it doesn’t hurt my eyes when I visit it. The blog theme is cool and simple. It is so easy to find the things you want to read and see in her site. I can see that Mommy Rubz is a very dedicated mother and a dutiful wife. I am a single mom and proud to be one and when I was reading her post about being a single mother again makes me cry, because the things that her husband did are the reasons I am afraid to tie the knot when I got pregnant.

Marc Nelson is the Man

Marc Nelson.

What comes up to your mind when you hear his name?

For me, one word: The Duke.

I am not a sports enthusiast and I don’t stay up late just to watch Sports Unlimited but I know Marc Nelson is one of the hosts. I am not that addict to watch every episode or season of Amazing Race Asia but sometimes I get to watch the advertisement and saw him as one of the contestant.

But I love to watch AXN, and so I discover this man.

He is very good in hosting, he has charisma when he talks, he looks so good (and yummy...) and he is very good in speaking the English language.

I always love to watch every The Duke’s episode because I get to learn a lot of things.

Last Tuesday was my flight to Manila for my HK getaway and guess what, Marc Nelson flew with me but I am too shy to ask if he could pose with me and get some pictures, so I only took his picture while he was reading his book.

I can’t believe my eyes, he is so simple and cool, Moreno and tall, and I thought it wasn’t him. He brought his own backpack and pasalubong and wait for his luggage.Not the typical Showbiz personality with the PA all around.

A Gift from Maybelline

Look what I've got from Maybelline Philippines :)
I do not know how to apply or use make-up, because my mom didn't teach me a thing or two about it. I am thankful for these goodies from Maybelline because I think I need to know how to apply make up in order to feel that I am a gurl.

I've got these goodies from joining Maybelline's Facebook contest and you might want to join their fan page here.

GT : Friends from School

To make things different, let's start from my College Friends...
These are my friends from Xavier University. This picture was taken last July 21, 2006.

These are the people I consider as my REAL GURL FRIENDS in my college life...
They are Corie, Jalex, and Mercy. Until now we call and text each other from time to time and do meet ups if we had the time.

And this is my bestfriend since highschool until now, meet EMAK!!! Even though we are far away, she is currently in Japan, we still manage to send emails and chat everytime we are both online. She is the sister I never had, and I will always treasure the moments we had together. This picture was taken when our other bestfriend, JAG, got married (I am still scavenging my cds for our pic).

And this picture was taken last December 2002, during our batch party. These are my Highschool friends.

Glad I am able to find some old pics (wasn't able to scan some old pics because of the election fever and election hangover). Please bear with me...

Mommy Moments: Motherly Advice

mommy moments

Mother's day is fast-approaching and I want to greet all Moms out there a very Happy Mother's Day.

Being a Mom is not an easy task, I know because I am one. Now I understand fully why my Mom was like this or like that. She only wants the best for me and now I know why.

My post for today will be for all the daughters and sons out there.

Treasure your mother after loving God, because she is you mother nothing more, nothing less.
If in times you can't understand your mother's reactions please do not hate her because she only wants the best for you.

Connect with her, spend time with her, every day that comes. Don't wait until it's too late to let her know that you are thankful for having her, for giving birth to you, for guiding and loving you.

Happy Mother's Day to all.

I had received a pack of MDPlus Golden Shield with SPF50, my skin's best defense against sun damage this summer from Island Travel Philippines through their contest .

Thank you so much for this gift, I can really use it this summer.

GT: Childhood Friends

I had a very colorful childhood, and I will always remember the people who made my childhood life a very memorable one. The friends I had back then are still my friends now. They were my friends during grade school days, turned out to be my closest friends in high school. And up until now that some of us had their own families we still spend time together.

These are some pictures from last year.

PS: will update my post tomorrow after scanning our grade school days.

One Day at A Time (REVIEWED)

Rache The Blogger

I don’t know Rache, the owner of One Day at a Time site. And today I am making a blog review.

It’s nice to meet new people and know them through their blogs. I can see in her site that she is a very girly lass because of its color and style.

The site is very reader-friendly, it’s easy to navigate and found the posts you want to read on. Obviously she makes money through sponsored posts and adgitize.

Like Rache, I think we need some security cameras too, because my bedroom has been ransacked a few years back and I just couldn’t bear the thought of having the robber with me on the same room. Good for Rache her husband thought of putting some nails on their cement wall to avoid robbers.

Rache is a member of GT. Girls Talk that is, but I have never visited her site, my bad. I hope I can make up with the lost times and get to know her more. She is a very good mom and a very happy and fulfilled wife as I can read and see in this post.

One Day at A Time is definitely a blog worth visiting for.

My Thoughts, My Heart, My Turf (REVIEWED)

My Thoughts, My Heart, My Turf

My thoughts, My heart, My turf is a blog owned by Sunshine. Her blog is all about herself and her experiences.

Obviously Sunshine loves purple/lavender because it is the blog site’s color and I love it too. Bambi just had her 1st Blogversary Contest last month and I did join the contest. Though I didn’t win I am not a sour loser because Sunshine mentioned my name here and she is planning to give us 1000 EC credits and 1 month ad space for joining.

I didn’t know that there is a so called prepaid credit card until I read Sunshine’s post about it here. Talking about the convenience and benefits of having a prepaid credit card, Sunshine sounds like a great marketer. And I hope I could get my hands on that prepaid credit cards to avoid identity thefts.

Sunshine is also a BC blogger and she joined the BC blogger’s Party last month. I am also a BC blogger and it’s always good to meet new friends online. She is single like me; the only difference is I have a child. I love to write and so is Sunshine, she is a graduate of Journalism and recently she is earning through writing and I hope I can earn too.
