Happy 31st Birthday to My Sister

Just got home 'coz we just celebrated my sister's 31st birthday in their house. We had so much fun and bonding with our cousins and her husband's relatives. We watched my sister's wedding video while we were eating. We were laughing and reminiscing about the wedding day. My sis must have been very tired because she just arrived from Ivory Coast just today. But I know she enjoyed a lot on her special day. I couldn't resist eating the lechon skin so tomorrow, I have to detoxify for eating a lot of fatty foods.

Who Will be the First Celebrity Sole Survivor?

Who's your bet? Who do you want to win the First Celebrity Sole Survivor title? Me? I'm hoping for Aki or Solenn to win. Well, we have our own views and perspectives on how the Top 4 castaways played in order to reach that far. Who will be voted by the juries to win? Can't really wait for the result.

Expensive Jewelries

I remember the time when my sister and mom were choosing which gold jewelries they're going to buy for the wedding. I envy them because I can't buy my own since I can't still afford and they don't have the budget for me. How I wish I could also get a set for me. How I wish I could wear expensive jewelries for such occasions. So I promised myself that when I saved enough money, I will buy gold so I can choose whatever jewelry design I want. Nowadays, it's quite hard to find unique designs so I think it's a great idea to create my own design.

I'm Gonna Be Rich!

I'm gonna be rich! I will be a successful woman someday. I will have my own business. I will buy all the things that I can't afford to buy right now. I'm gonna work really hard in order to achieve my goal. I will have my own business. It’s really my biggest dream to have my own business. And if I ever succeed with my dreams, I’m going to protect my wealth by investing. I will buy a farm, cars, houses, etc. I will also buy gold bullion. I know I will need it for the future. We’ll never know what’s going to happen in the future. So it’s better to be ready. I am really hoping that my dreams will come into reality someday (fingers crossed).

My New EON Card

Just got my new eon card today. Woohoo! I can now withdraw my earnings!!!

But sad to say, I am bit disappointed with the teller's service. My Union Bank account is located at Ever Gotesco branch. The tellers keep on chit chatting while they keep their customers waiting. On my case, I thought there would still be some papers to sign that's why the teller is not telling me anything but she just keeps on talking to her co-worker and she keeps on doing some papers so I thought those were mine. When I gave her a look that's the only time she told me that my card is already okay and I can already leave.

I asked the teller regarding the 4-digit on how many days before I can get it. She said she doesn't know anything about it. How stupid! When I first had my EON card, the former teller knows when will I get the 4-digit numbers. She even gave me instructions about so how come that this teller I had encountered with today doesn't know anything about it?

So I just decided to call their hot line and maybe address this matter to them.

Turning an Old Clothing into a New and Fashionable One

When I was in college, I used to think about turning my old and ugly clothes into new and fashionable ones so I can save a lot and later on try my luck on selling them. But due to my busy schedule, this idea of mine never came into reality.

That's why I was really amazed with this girl who turned an old clothing into a new one. And take note she only spends $1 on each dress she makes. She's a very artistic and creative woman. She's trying to create 365 new clothing in 365 days with only $365. It sounds really cool.

Here are some of her creations:

Try to visit here site: New Dress a Day, I'm sure you'll gonna enjoy it too like I do.

Congratulations, Manny Pacquiao!

I am really amazed with this man. I was filled with excitement and thrill while watching his fight with Antonio Margarito. Pacquiao is really full of energy and power. You can see it on how he smashed Margarito's face.

Congratulations to you.

I just hate that person on his background (on his left side). Hahaha!!!

Maids: Pain in the Ass

Nowadays, it isn't easy to find the right maid for our house or kids. I've noticed that most maids are very abusive, liars, hard-headed, and other negative attitudes that we may hardly think that they could be. I am not looking for a perfect maid but I am looking for someone who is sincere with her work and knows how to respect her employers. I don't really get it why most of them have to be like those attitudes that I've mentioned above. If they don't want that kind of work then don't! They're just giving their employers headache.

If you are nice and kind to them, they would abuse it and later on they would just do want they want to do. They would even manipulate us. Ask for a day off aside from Sunday and go back not on the agreed date and time. But they are expecting to get their whole monthly salary which I find if unfair. If you scold at them because they broke or did something, they would say that they have a bad employer and would curse you or worse say bad words to you. They are fond of saying "hindi ko alam" (I don't know) when they are asked something especially when they did something wrong inside house. They are good liars.

They don't do their tasks in the house properly but they would give you dramas like we are very poor and so on, I am raising my (many) kids, my mother/father is sick, and other excuses just to get their salary in advance. But the quality of their work, it's very bad!

I am not saying that all of the maids have this type of character but most of we get are. I am very sick and tired of their stupid attitude. So, I think I have to practice myself living without a maid. I have to cook our meal, clean the house, do the laundry and chores. I think it's better that way than to pay someone who is not doing a good job and will just waste everything in the house (like dishwashing liquid, detergent, etc.).

I think I can save a lot living without a maid. Besides, there will be a peace of mind and our things is guaranteed safe inside the house. So I think we should all try our best not to depend on them so in the future, we won't be needing them and that's the consequence of their bad attitude because I think they are taking it for advantage that most household are in need of a maid/house helper.

My Own Version of Potato Salad

I went to Banchetto in Ortigas with my friends last time to check the place out. Actually, there were many people in that area because they said that most people eating there are call center agents. The crowd was thick that time and while we were looking for food to eat, we had to walk very slow. It was around 12 midnight when we went there. While we were choosing what to eat, I saw a potato salad and it caught my attention. I ordered it and it only costs 60 pesos (about $1.50). It was delicious and my friend liked it, too. So, I decided to make my own version of it.

Here are the ingredients:
1. Small potatoes about 1 kilo.
2. Miracle Whip
3. Mayonnaise
4. Mustard (optional)
5. Parsley for garnishing

What I did is that I washed the potatoes very well. I also brushed it because I included its peel. I just boiled the potatoes until they're soft.
I cut them into halves. Put them into a bowl and do the mixing. I just put about 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 2 tbs. miracle whip, and salt and pepper to taste. I chopped some parsley for garnish and voila! It's really. I think it's more delicious while it's hot.

I love to prepare delicious and simple dishes. This is my first time to post about cooking on my blog and I hope you liked it. I'm trying to learn how to cook some of my favorite dishes so I can prepare it myself.

Investment is a Necessity

Nowadays, more and people are losing their job and some companies are closing down due to world crisis. I can't believe that this is really happening all over the world. So we should save and invest with our money while we have our work because we'll never know if it will be affected by the crisis in the future. That's why I'm planning to buy gold coins as my investment. I know some of you might think that it's weird but I think buying gold coins has a good advantage. In the future, it's value will increase and who knows that the price I paid for will be doubled.

Bye Bye Eon Card

Today, I have surrendered my old Unionbank Eon Card. My debit card has already expired so I had it renewed in order to withdraw my earnings from my Paypal. I was a little surprised because I was expecting it to be claimed within 3 days but unfortunately, I have to wait for a week. So it's means, I'm not gonna be able to get my salary for almost 3 weeks (I haven't withdrawn my earnings last week). Hayz, patience is virtue.

Lee Da Hae Insulted the Filipino Teachers???

Lee Da Hae is one of my favorite Korean actress. I find her pretty and cute. I love her character in "My Girl" and I felt happy to see her in "East of Eden" because I'll get to see my favorite actress again. I really appreciate her beauty 'coz she looks so adorable and charming. But the way I look to her changed when I watched this video.

I am not really sure if she's really pertaining to the Filipino teachers as what the translation indicated on the video but I'm sure that it's the Filipinos. I know that sometimes we do make fun of the accent of other nationalities and sometimes we even make fun of our own accent. I have to admit that because I also do the same thing.

Even if I try to ignore this video, it still hurts me because I used to be an English teacher for Korean students. I never posted on my blog or other social networking sites about how they talk in English. I only posted good things about my students. I know that it's okay to make fun of other accents for sometime but it would be better if she just did it privately. Ms. Lee Da Hae you are a public figure and everything you do and say would reflect on your character.

Though she posted an apology on her twitter account: cherry4eva84, I just can't still get over it. You said in your apology that you are not aware that it's the Filipinos that they are pertaining to and it's the Southeast Asia. I don't think that you are not aware of it. I can't understand Hangul but the male host clearly mentioned the word "Philippine."

This degrades the Filipino English teachers when in fact we all know that your fellow Koreans learn English from Filipinos.

My First Eye Brush Make Up Set

I just bought this eye eye brush set from because it's very cheap and affordable compared to the branded ones. I only bought it for 550 pesos (about $12) so I made my bid right away after reading its product description and other details.

This is my first eye brush set and I'm very excited to buy more make up and accessories. I really love putting on my make up. I feel confident and sexy when I have it on my face. It's actually one of my hobbies, when I feel bored and just wanted to rest inside my room, I play with my make up. I try to experiment on different shades of eyeshadows then take a picture of me to see if it looks good on me.

What I also liked with this brand is that it is earth friendly. The handle is made of bamboo and I can smell it everytime I use the brushes. I love the smell of nature.

I am really starting to collect make up. For me, it's my investment. LOL... So feel free to comment on my blog for any tips and suggestions on what are the good make up brands or anything about make up.
