Overcast Sky

A rather cloudy and overcast sky late afternoon of Wednesday last week. The skies here now are cloudy. The gloomy skies and rainy weather most of the time here in my part of the world lately makes me lazy. I hope the skies will clear up and show more sunlight!

Hibiscus (Gumamela)

Happy Wednesday!!!

Cloudy Day

Today is wash day for us but it is cloudy. It has been cloudy the past two days but today is really cloudy with the sky totally covered with clouds. I feel sleepy too when the weather is like this. I hope it won't rain yet but that the clouds would just go away. CT is with his cousins playing in the living room. H let him out of the crib into the floor playing ball with them. CT is happy coz he usually plays ball with his cousins with him in his crib. Well I will leave him there for awhile and I have to check the machine if the laundry is still turning. Oh my I wish the skies would clear as it's gloomy and makes me sleepy on a Tuesday morning.

I tried shopping online for something for myself and I got interested in this Pacsafe anti-theft hand bag which is stylish, organized and has anti-theft security features. Look very good for those living in places where thefts lurks in the corner of crowded places in the metro places. Good thing in our place it is not such a problem. But when we go to the capital then maybe I would be needing this one. They offer free shipping so that won't be my worry. It has a tamper proof zipper, slash guard, slash proof shoulder strap which is adjustable and it is snatch proof particularly the shoulder strap that allows the bag to anchor to a secure fixture. This would be a good buy remembering a friend whose bag was snatched twice while walking in a busy street. I just have to save a little more for this as we just bought some accessories for the D60.

Dog Cloud

This is my Sky Watch entry for this week. A snapshot taken yesterday past five in the afternoon as we were waiting for H to come home from an errand. When I got out of the house, i saw this huge cloud forming somewhat like a dog. Hope you'll have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend ahead! :)

June 2008 Architect Board Exam Results released

Congratulations to the new Architects who passed the June 2008 Architect Licensure Examination which was released yesterday. If you want to see the results and have the complete list of passers, please refer to this link for Architect Licensure Examination Results June 2008 Released. I still did not find the name of my friend's brother. Anyway, there is always a next time for those who were not fortunate to pass it.

Car Parked

Our neighbor's car is parked for the meantime because there is something to be repaired with their auto air conditioning compressor. If you have a car and got used to commuting in an aircon car then you would know how important that part of the car is. Well there is an aircon taxi that they call every day to fetch them and they come home the same way. It could be costly too!

CT Behaves at the Birthday Party

Just wanna share this photo of our precious angel CT who was behaved and sat down with the kids at the birthday party of Ella Herschell, the daughter of H's office mate, which we attended last Friday afternoon. He also had fun with the three puppet shows for the kids entertainment during party. Hope you had a great weekend and a great week ahead! Happy WS too!

Cleaning Up

While going through the stuff in our drawer as I was cleaning up yesterday, I saw some cables, wires, CAT5e and patch cords that probably belonged to my hubby as these were the stuff he had in a box that contains the things he used in his work before we got married. That was long time ago actually and I was wondering if he would use it or we can give it to his friend who is still doing the work he did before. I just have to have more space for CT's things and other stuff that we most often use. Now I have to go and check with hubby about those stuff.

Blue Sky, Blue Water

(click on photo to enlarge)

See that blue water and sky? This is another shot for Sky Watch taken at the Sta. Ana Wharf last July 15, Tuesday when hubby and I ventured there to shoot. He was free that time so we went there and we were glad we trooped there not even sure if we could get anything good. But we got rather good shots we were happy with. Those huts in the far horizon reminds me of those Mykonos villa rentals in the lovely Greek Islands. Oh Mamma Mia here I go again, my, my how can I resist them? Sounds familiar? Well happy Friday everyone and enjoy watching the sky! :)

Friday Five

What was the last meal that caused you to be ill?
>> It was not really a meal but a mango-avocado shake that we bought from All That Juice stall in the SM mall here that my stomach reacted .

Are there any places you never dine anymore because of a bad experience hours after the meal?
>> There was one popular barbeque house where we frequently eat years before but then we stopped eating there after some friends of my officemates told us they saw large rats in the kitchen near the area where they place the chicken and everything they grill.

What’s your prescription for dealing with a food-caused illness?
>> I usually take Imodium or Loperamide if I really need to take it. Then I would go on a cracker and hot tea diet until I feel my stomach goes back to normal.

When friends tell you about coming down with food-caused illnesses, do you avoid the places they name, or do you figure it’s a dice-roll wherever you go?
>> Depends if I hear a lot from the same place then there must be something wrong with their food and how it is prepared.

After numerous citations, a very, very popular restaurant that you’re quite fond of is shut down by the health department until it can get everything up to code. When the health department gives the restaurant the o.k. to reopen, do you go?
>> I'll observe it there are any complains after it has re-opened, otherwise it may be good to eat back there again.

Now I have to go and check those mortgage lenders my sis was asking me to go over last night. She wants to find one before her house gets foreclosed I think.

Sunrise at Turtle Sanctuary

This is a shot taken by fellow FPS Anton Serafin during the sunrise shoot we had two Sundays ago at the Turtle Sanctuary in Punta Dumalag, Davao. It was a nice experience and calming way to start a day. Tomorrow hopefully we can get a better sunrise shoot if we are able to wake up early. So I am off to bed now as it is almost 12MN.

Sunset at Felis

We have been blessed to have seen the sunset for the past two days. H had been wanting to go for a sunset shoot just on our own so we can practice too. Sharing one of the shots taken before the sun set when we were at Felis Resort yesterday afternoon. A little cloudy but at least we got to see the sun set in the horizon. Happy Friday and enjoy your Sky Watch!

Bluer Than Blue

Here is one of the shots we took yesterday late afternoon. No sun but the sky was clear and it was great there - refreshing and calm. As always, hope you have a great day ahead!

Sunny Day

It is a sunny day today and hopefully we can get a better sunset this afternoon. Yesterday, H and I went to Felis to shoot just the two of us. Hmmm it was relaxing and refreshing! The sun had set by the time we got to Felis actually but still got a few good shots but no sun in view. No regrets still we can come back next time as this place is just near our place. Still have to download the photos. Maybe next time I can post shots we took there. Hope we can shoot a great sunset later if we can get to back there this afternoon. Have a great sunny day everyone! :)

Small Business

We have been wanting for our sis to have a regular work so she can have money from her own hard work and hopefully be able to save for her own future. But then she seems more inclined to going into business even just a small business of her own. As of now she has a part time source of income or should I just say allowance for her own expenses. But then our older sister is encouraging her to go into business. She may start on looking for a reliable source where she can avail one of those of small business loans like those offered by Unsecured Solutions which will guide you in the entire process from the initial application to walking away with your financial goals achieved. There is no upfront fee. You can get in 48 hours a small business loan, credit line, personal loan. There are no documents and assets needed for business loan and credit line. Within 24 hours you can get a fast approval of your loan. Hmmm hope sis will pursue this plan of our older sis for her and hopefully succeed in it.

Flip Flops and a Chairpad

Got myself yesterday a new Offshore flip flops which I planned to use in the David's edge shoot this morning. Thanks to hubby for sponsoring it! I really need a new pair of slippers at home since my slippers sometimes mysteriously disappears from the living room.
Then H also got me a chair pad that is pink of course my fave color. I think it is rather too thin and won't remain fluffy for long hahaha. I will place it on the chair I'm using in the living room since I have transferred my "office" from the bedroom to the living room so that I can see CT more often in the house. CT "lives" in the living room. Hopefully when we transfer, he will have his own bedroom or his crib will fit inside our bedroom.

Just Browsing

Feel sleepy and tired and just want to stay at home while just browsing through this brochure/catalog given to us. Hmmm those flat TVs are really tempting to buy and I saw those DLP tv that looks nice too. I just have to step on my blogging maybe and save more then maybe in a few months time. Here I am again wishing and hoping!

Saturday, July 05, 2008


I got a chance to visit my Friendster account for awhile yesterday and I saw from browsing over my friends accounts how I missed quite a lot from them. Three already got married and never knew well I am not expecting to be invited coz most were out of town weddings but then I would have greeted them best wishes earlier. A blogger whom H know and we met last December here in Davao is also getting married next month here. Well weddings and weddings here and there. Just a wonderful, once in a lifetime event that worth reminiscing. That's why when I feel like it sometimes I would search online for sites related to weddings and at one time I crossed over this site which is a one-stop source for wedding and party supplies at discount. They do have elegant wedding products at wholesale prices. They guarantee that their prices are the lowest you can find online. Well what I liked is their ostrich feathers center pieces shown on their site and it really is a beautiful setting for a wedding banquet. Hmmmm makes me remember those beautiful times.


We met the agent who will help us get a nanny-helper yesterday at a store near the guard house. I am hoping we can get a help in the house soon. I am feeling tired already and I know H has to get more sleep everyday coming from work. A general cleaning has to be done in the house too that is why we are not only looking for a nanny but a helper as well. The dust in our room has been building up and I think we need to clean with those vacuum cleaners especially for allergy sufferers and all those wanting a healthy home are essential especially for people like H who are allergic to dust. I have been wanting to clean the room but have no time to spend that much since someone has to watch CT and I have other tasks to do also.

No Shoot

No shoot today which was scheduled at 5AM to 7AM because it was raining at 4AM when we woke up. Sir Eugene texted us around 4:30AM to postpone the shoot. Around 6AM, H missed a call in his cellphone. We thought it was just no one. But then it was one of our classmate who told us that he was already on the way to the shoot venue in David's Edge when he received the text. He called us second time he was already at home and was going back to sleep again. Hopefully I have more time to practice for the shoot and that it won't be as hard as I think it would be. The shoot will be on Monday but H has work then he will just follow us to the venue. I am not sure though if I wanna go ahead or go at the same time as H. H would be my teacher then when I can't get the shot I want. Hope the weather will cooperate on Monday. One of our classmate has to finish the shoot then as he will be going back to Chicago already.

Being a Medical Assistant

We have been talking about my sis and we want her to think about being a medical assistant. The topic of pursuing our other sister's plan to have her follow them in UK or have my sis work abroad to make something out of herself. There are medical assistant training programs in the US which is something they thought my sis may take if and when she gets there but there are also medical assistant school online programs specially designed for your comfort and affordability. This is good because you do not have to be physically there in school for anyone to have the interest to continue your education. So my sister can rely on online education and hopefully pursue this career.

Rain, Rain Go Away

Rain, rain go away! We would want to go out but decided to go out tomorrow instead. The clouds won't deceive you and it is really obvious that it is going to rain. The clouds outside are so dark. It is drizzling actually right now according to my niece. I feel sleepy again. I was able to take a nap which is a miracle as I do not usually take a nap. H was with CT earlier and they took a walk and rode the bike earlier. When I woke up, they were eating in the living room with CT in his high chair. Now I heard my mom say that there is going to be a mass at seven tonight. I wanna go but H is asleep right now. Well I hope it won't rain that much tonight as I saw in the news that the city was flooded late last night which seems getting worse. Oh no it is raining already! Got to go check something outside.

Side by Side

Happy Wordless Wednesday!!!
