Personal essentials

I bought a bath towel in the nearby mall and I was happy to see another kind of towel that I can use while taking a bath everyday.A flannel, wash cloth, washcloth, or face cloth is a small square about the width of a hand towel, and is used by wetting, applying soap to the towel, and then using the towel to apply the soap to skin. This increases abrasion, and can remove dead skin cells from the skin more effectively than just manual application and rubbing of soap. In some parts of the world, washing mitts are used for this purpose. I put here my favorite bath & shower gel from Body shop and enjoy the health benefits of using bath towel daily.

Birthday treat

It was a happy birthday treat yesterday together with Lyd and My.  We planned to have a dinner in a downtown restaurant. I arrived late because I still had a class to attend to until 8:30 in the evening.  I ordered curry squid in plain rice and iced tea. There were steamed siomai, stir fried rice noodles in meat and vegetables and creamy fresh fruit salad. We chatted only until 10:00pm because there will be work on the next day. A short get together with nice food servings. Thanks for the treat,My.

Kitchen essentials

One important thing to have in the kitchen is  scissors. It is a multi-purpose tool that can be used on slicing or  cutting vegetables, meat, fruits and many more usages. For me this is one important tool because it makes cooking so easy. When my last pair of scissors was destroyed, I was so frustrated. I had to buy a quality, durable and a new one. It was so hard to do some kitchen preparations with defective tools. Even though pricey, I really bought one so I can have something to use for home. Now it is an ease for me doing cooking jobs. This is truly one kitchen essential and it pays to have one.

Weekend reunion

A happy weekend at home because we had a short get together with my family- cousins, aunt, uncle and niece. Two of my cousins arrived from Manila and CDO to visit their parents then joined with us  here in the city. It was months ago since our last meeting so everybody was very excited to keep in touch once again. As a host at home I was busy preparing for the meals and getting every details of the household so that everybody would be comfortable in their stay. Food, stories, malling, groceries and many more were present during the reunion. I am thankful and blessed to have a close family ties. That was such a great weekend for everybody.

PAL on the headlines

For the past days the country flag carrier, Philippines Airlines is making headlines. Many flight destinations local and abroad were cancelled because of lack of pilots for their aircraft. I was in sympathy for those stranded passengers and also to those pilots. Many were affected because of this problem. I think this takes responsibility for the government, PAL management and its employees.  There might be certain issues that were taken for granted or ignored that led to the resignation of pilots who are considered to be the assets of the company. I think PAL management is thinking otherwise on this. I hope this would be given solution the soonest time because the tourism, airline service and operations are very much affected of the problem.

Karla’s pic

My friend Julie just sent a new picture of her baby Karla. She is 11 months old now. Cute baby I should say! She is the mestiza version of Julie. The last pictures Julie sent to me was Karla at 7 months. She was a chubby baby that time and now still looking very sweet with the proud mommy. I am looking soon to meet them when they go for a vacation here in Davao City.Karla is a blessing to Julie & Billy and they are always adored by their precious bundle. of joy.

Bright sunny Saturday

As always, my favorite day of the weekend, Saturday. I wake late already at 8:30am from a good and long hours of sleep. This is the only day wherein I feel so relaxed and charged after the hard days of work starting Monday up to Friday. The morning coffee with a doughnut is so delicious including my lunch of fish and vegetable broth with some cucumber salad. When I hang the washed clothes on the drying area, the sun shines bright and I can see the clear blue skies with out any sign of a coming rain for the day. Indeed a bright Saturday to live life again.

My Olay

Every person has to aged in time and whether we like it or not we will eventually get old. However aging should be graceful so for now I start to take care of my face by trying to use this Olay anti-aging cream.  I had been planning to buy this product long time ago but due to financial priorities I just had it bought weeks ago. And I never regret in trying to use this product. It is very effective to use and my sensitive skin did not react to the cream ingredients. After two weeks of using the product, I can see some god results. Thanks to this wonderful Olay  product that is specially made for women.

Cereal of the day

I am not used of eating corn flakes or other cereal kind of food during breakfast. During our weekend hang-out with Anne and Dick, we did some grocery shopping. On the cereals lane, we stopped and took some glimpse on the array of different kinds of cereal boxes and foods to choose from. Out of curiosity, we grabbed this one box of corn flakes to try for breakfast. I included a liter of fresh milk because that’s what compliments with the cereal. Then we tried preparing the breakfast meal with this corn flakes. Hmmm, delicious! I liked the crunchy and creamy taste. Maybe I can buy again another box for breakfast.

Cellphone communication

Communication is very important part of life at present time and almost everyone has a mobile phone to use for communicating family, friends, associates etc. Cellular phone is an electronic device used for two-way radio telecommunication over a cellular network of base stations known as cell sites. It may differ from cordless telephones, which only offer telephone service within limited range through a single base station attached to a fixed land line, for example within a home or an office.A mobile phone allows its user to make and receive telephone calls to and from the public telephone network which includes other mobiles and fixed-line phones across the world. It does this by connecting to a cellular network owned by a mobile network operator. A key feature of the cellular network is that it enables seamless telephone calls even when the user is moving around wide areas via a process known as handoff or handover. I just recently bought this new Nokia 5130 cellphone and I was happy to have a new one with new features and functions. It is very user friendly and it did not gave a hard time analyzing its manual. When I can have time this weekend, I am planning to download some latest wallpapers, ringtones and other applications.
