Payday Loans For Your Summer Trip

Summer is here and it's a perfect time to go on vacation with family or friends. If you are enthusiastic in having a grand summer vacation but a little short on cash, you can consider applying for online payday loans. Don't let your shortness on cash spoil the summer fun. If you've been working hard all year long then you deserve a little break. Have fun this summer by taking a leisure trip. Think of it as your own personal reward from months of serious and hard work.

Take advantage of the wonderful weather and head out to a wonderful beach resort with your family or close friends. All work and no play can be very stressful. It's about time you took a little break and gave yourself some time to take it easy and replenish your worn out energy. After all, everyone needs a little time for some much needed relaxation.

Birthday Roses

It was my special day yesterday but hubby was already out of the house early in the morning to help facilitate a badminton tournament in Lipa City. To make it up to me, he went home after lunch to give me a surprise. He asked Yohan to give these to me ...

Then he went out again to host the Sports fest of our village. Oh well, I had no choice but to accept that he was busy as a bee.

I didn't have any party but I'm glad Francis (my brother), Cess (my SIL), Onang (my brother's friend) and Chary (my best friend) visited me. It was wonderful spending my special day with them.

I would like to thank everyone who greeted me on my birthday. Thank you for remembering. I consider every sweet and thoughtful greeting as a big pleasure. You made me very happy. God bless.

Personalized Tshirt Printing

Tshirt Printing is a nice personal or corporate giveaway. People appreciate a personalized tshirt because it's useful. It is a popular giveaway for many types of occasion. In fact, my friend chose Tshirt Printing for her daughter's 7th birthday. She had kiddie shirts printed with matching birthday theme. Every child at the party received a nice kiddie shirt as a souvenir. It was the perfect giveaway. Tshirt Printing is ideal for birthday parties, anniversaries, corporate events and many other occasions.

Web Hosting Services

I've had this blog for several years now and I would like to get my own domain and web hosting for this blog. I think among the most important things to look for in a web host are dependability, affordable hosting package and over all quality service.

It is also good to find a web host that has good customer assistance. Customizing your own template can be quite challenging and difficult. It would be great to find a web host that can help transform your blog into an attractive site, which in turn can attract existing visitors and new ones. It would be great if the web host can help you with custom web application development and implementation.

Web hosting is also perfect for those in the field of e-commerce. Clients are more attracted to professional looking and hosted sites. More and more companies are putting up their own websites to market their goods and services.

Photo Hunt :: High

Come and join the hunt here.

These photos were taken last February 2008 at the 12th PIHABF (Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta). It was my family's first time to watch an air balloon festival. It was exhilarating watching the air balloons inflate gradually and lift up high in the sky one by one.

Aloha Friday #23

Do you always stop what you're doing and stand up when you hear the national anthem?

Yes, I always do. It's a pity not everyone cares to show respect anymore.

Take for instance at the movie theater, assuming there are only a few people inside, would you stand up upon hearing the national anthem being played? I would. Sadly, when I watched a movie with my family recently, we noticed that we were the only ones who cared to stand up to show respect to the national anthem. We were there early to catch the first movie time slot. It was a weekday and there were only a handful of people. We stood up the moment we heard the national anthem but the couple a few rows in front of us remained seated munching on their popcorn. Even the other family seated near us didn't bother to stand up.

Yohanism #17

Yohan loves drawing things and last week he gave me a unique drawing.

Yohan: "Mom, I have a surprise for you."

Me: "Really? May I see it?"

He gave me this drawing ...

"How nice. What is it?"

Yohan: "It's a machine."

"What does it do?"

Yohan: "It's a special machine."

He told me about each component of his "machine" and I've labeled them below so you can easily see.

Here are selected parts of Yohan's machine that he elaborated...
  • Bug swatter - It hits cockroaches, mosquitoes, red ants, centipedes. It does not hit ladybugs, bees, butterflies, black ants.
  • Balloon Popper - Pops bad balloons and not ordinary balloons.
  • Pick Up Tool - Picks up small rocks.
  • Wing - So the machine can fly.

Best Memory Deal

I noticed the over the recent months my computer has gotten slower and slower. I realized I have used a great bulk of my computer's memory. The slow computer performance is probably due to the increasing number of large files like photos and music on my computer.

The large number of files in my computer has also affected the speed of my Internet connection. It is slower than usual even though I have recently upgraded my bandwidth. I was thinking if Got My Computer Memory Deal and increased my existing memory, the performance of my computer will improve tremendously. I was browsing on the Internet and I may have Found My Best Deal on Memory. One may choose from any of the following, Samsung, Hynix, Qimonda, Micron, Elpida.

Worldless Wednesday #16

We don't have Fall in the Philippines but last weekend when we went to the house of Yohan's grandma, it looked almost like Fall. Yohan had fun playing with the dried leaves. See him in action at my Worldless Wednesday #16 at my other blog, Soulful Thoughts.

Easter Sunday

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter celebration. We went to mass in the morning and had a nice lunch at home. My hubby and I organized an easter egg hunt for Yohan and his cousins in our garden that same afternoon.

We bought some nice giveaways for the kids like coloring books, stickers, bubbles, clay, assorted toys, mini flashlights, kiddie dinner set, books, tote bags and sweet treats. Yohan's grandma wasn't able to come along but he made her a special Easter card below.

Yohan had a great time easter egg hunting with his cousins, Tisha and Sofie.

It was nice watching my niece, Sofie in egg pursuit. It was a nice coincidence that the tote bag I gave her matched her clothes.

A Mortgage is A Big Responsibilty

A mortgage is a big responsibility that many people have. Paying Mortgages on time has been a big challenge to others. Proper budget management should be implemented in order fulfill such financial obligations.

Entering in a mortgage is not an easy decision. It takes a lot of consideration and time to come up with a wise decision. Brokers, however feel that people seeking for a new mortgage should decide and act fast because mortgages are changing fast. In fact, there are a lot of fixed rate deals that are expiring soon. Brokers advise people to grab a deal fast before they are pulled out.

Summer To Do List

Summer is here and perfect time to do some minor renovations, repairs and check-ups for the house. We're thinking of having the outdoor fence and walls repainted. The roof also needs a brand new paint job. It's also time for our annual termite inspection. We don't want another termite infestation to happen again. We're more careful now. The garden needs tending because of the weeds. Well, it seems there's much to do this summer and hope to get things started after Holy Week.

Photo Hunt :: Metal

Come and join the hunt here.

My son, Yohan dreams of becoming a chef. Here you can see him with his metal-like cooking wares. His toy pots and pans have a metal-like finish and even has that chrome "glow" that reflects on his face.

Please also scroll down below (earlier post) and see my little chef in action.

March Blog Carnival :: I Dream of Peaches 'n Cream

edited: March 24, 2008 @ 8:30 p.m.

photo from Toni's blog

I'm joinining Toni's Blog Carnival again this month. For the month of March, the theme is a delicious one: I Dream of Peaches 'n Cream. I love peaches and I like the idea of adding cream to it. I asked my hubby to make something that uses both ingredients.

We love pancakes. Majority think that pancakes are best served for breakfast but my family loves eating pancakes any time of the day. In fact, pancakes can be a good dessert. Hubby made some pancake dessert last Wednesday which he served after dinner.

We have two "chefs" in the family. Below Chef 1 (hubby) is shown making pancakes with a twist. He added some sliced peaches.

Meanwhile Chef 2 (Yohan) thought of making his own dessert ... Flora Marshmallows seasoned with fun, dash of excitement and sprinkled with laughter.

Now back to Chef 1, he closed the pancake ala crepe style. He garnished it with chocolate frosting that he usually puts on cakes and topped the pancake with cream. Viola, Peach Pancakes.

Chef 2 thinks that Chef 1 did a great job and shows his approval. :)

How to make your own:

Just follow your basic pancake recipe but to make the pancake thinner than usual, add more water. Add slices of peaches in the middle, add all purpose cream and sprinkle some confectioner's sugar. Close the sides of the pancake. If desired, put some chocolate frosting on top then add cream. Let it cool and put inside the refrigerator for a few minutes . Serve as snack or dessert.

Yohanism #16

It's been several months since I last shared a memorable Yohanism so I thought it would be nice to add more to this portion of memories. This only happened yesterday morning. In fact, this was what inspired me to write another Yohanism entry.

I was on my computer (in the bedroom) early in the morning and I didn't notice Yohan waking up. I just heard him say in a soft and mild tone ...

Yohan: "My heart is broken."

His voice caught me by surprise but I didn't go to him immediately because I decided to finish typing the last sentence on my blog. All I managed to say to him was ...

Me: "Why?"

Yohan: "Because you didn't kiss me good morning."

His words made me get up from my chair and go to him as fast as I can.

Me: "I'm so sorry." Then I gave him a big kiss.

Yohan: "My heart is fixed."

I felt so guilty after that and I even felt my eyes water. I immediately shut down my computer and brought Yohan downstairs. We ate breakfast together and we played with some of his Transformers after.
