WS: Desserts at Grand Men Seng Hotel Davao

With hubby and my son, we had our Sunday dinner at Grand Men Seng Hotel Davao which has a dinner buffet. It has been a long while since we have eaten there. Remembering hubby and I enjoyed their lunch buffet, we tried their dinner buffet last night. Having a craving for sweets, I took the liberty of getting three slices of my fave leche flan which was good and I came back for more. :) I also tried their cakes which honestly did not taste that good. My son ate many slices of apple which he suddenly liked again and he also ate their chicken with honey which tasted really good. And this is my weekend snapshot! Join us!

Check out my other WS entries here and here!

Where's the Digicam?

I was about to go back to sleep when I remembered to get the keys to the front door to lock it after hubby went to work. I then also remembered to bring out the camera from the bag we brought yesterday. When I looked inside I only found the DSLR and the old Canon digital camera was not there anymore. I was trying to remember where I last placed it and I remembered my younger sis got it since our elder sister wanted to borrow it again. Huh just as I though I must have left it at YC yesterday at least it is safe with my sister. I was kind of hoping she would buy it from us so that we can upgrade our camera into a video cam. But I think she will just borrow it as long as she still can.

Getting Sleepy

MY son is still asleep as of now and I am getting sleepy myself since I woke up early as I heard my hubby getting ready for work. I am glad I woke up early so I can finish some things I left pending last night. I was updating my other blog and was not able to finish it since my son wanted me to go to bed with him too and I must have been tried yesterday that I slept all along and was not able to get up until early this morning leaving my laptop on all throughout the night. I might take a nap right now or until my son wakes up too. Gotta rest my eyes too and have to try not to strain them more.

Durable and Affordable

A cousin was asking us if we could help find a durable and affordable toilet seat riser for our aunt and I just remembered reading about it a few weeks ago where people may find such at Allegro Medical which is an online retailers of life enhancing products in the US. They have choices of raised toilet seat that are safe, durable, lightweight and has a locking mechanism that secures the seat to the toilet so that it won't slip securing it in place while raising it to about five inches higher but there are some models that you can adjust the height for comfort for those people having difficulty bending or sitting like the elderly or disabled. It is also easy to install and easy to use.

Jolly Hotdog

I am getting hungry almost half past six in the morning here. I remembered I still have a Jolly hotdog in the ref. but hubby said I should throw it away as I bought it the other night when my son and I had dinner at Jollibee while hubby was at work. I bought three for take out which hubby and I ate with my son when he came home the other night from work. I forgot to eat the last one yesterday for breakfast as I completely forgot to eat breakfast. I still wanna eat it but that might not be a good idea anymore. It is Sunday morning but it is raining outside and am not sure my son and I can go out for our usual Sunday morning breakfast out.

Need a Break

I think I need a break just as I was talking earlier about experiencing a great vacation. My eyes still are a little strained and my head aches in the right side. Dunno what this is and I was kind of hoping it would go away after I had a sleep.

My son woke up a few times last night just like the other night so hubby and I were also awaken from our sleep. He must have been dreaming about the events from yesterday or something. He would also go back to sleep immediately but even though it somehow ends up like a restless sleep for us especially for me feeling something in my head.

But I'm okay and I just need to take a break from my laptop and cannot stay long. I need eye breaks as my sis would tell me.

Experience Karisma

Speaking of holiday trips, try and experience Karisma which means divine favor in an all inclusive Cancun vacation with choices of cancun hotels or an all inclusive Mexico vacation. Try the Karisma Hotels which is a collection of beautiful and unique beach resorts in stunning vacation destinations. Experience a world sensuality and privacy as they have hotels and resorts along the white sand beaches in Mayan Riviera, Mexico.

It is summer and it would be great to take that opportunity to have a wonderful vacation and experience the concept of Karisma's luxury all-inclusive you will find no where else. Their Gourmet-inclusive package should not be missed and appreciate the fine details behind an experience of great dining with a welcome glass of sparkling wine or champagne as well as all Gourmet meals and specialty bites with live music and shows for your entertainment and relaxation. It will be an vacation experience made memorable and relaxing from day one.

If you wanna try a stress-free hotel then you must think of Azul Blue in in the Riviera Maya which is the first of its kind where all is done to nurture your inner peace away from the everyday stress that people experience.

Winning a Holiday Trip

If you have been reading my home, I have been blogging about my son somehow obsessed with watching Mr. Bean and the movie my hubby got a copy of has been playing many times each day for the past few days now.

Well the movie Mr. Bean's Holiday starts with Mr. Bean winning a holiday trip to the French Riviera in Cannes. He must be one lucky guy to win the prize of a holiday involving a train journey to Cannes, a Sony video camera, and €200 pocket money. But the rest of the movie is a series of mishaps which you might wanna see for yourself. But I wish I could also win a trip but hopefully not have the mishaps Mr. Bean all went through.

Trying to Remember

Today is the 25th of April and I am trying to remember and recall who among my friends has a birthday today. My best friend on high school had her birthday on the 22nd and I was able to greet her before that and during her birthday as we were able to chat a little until she left to go to attend mass at the church. Another blogger friend had her birthday on the 23rd and I was able to greet her too. Then my nephew will be having his 3rd birthday on the 27th.

But am sure there is someone celebrating her birthday today. Hmmm after a few hours of thinking, I suddenly remembered when we passed by this morning in the old house a friend and there I remember my friend in college is the one celebrating her birthday today. I no longer dropped by coz aside from being in a hurry for a lunch date with my two girl friends in college, I remembered she had probably transferred because she already got married. Well, I hope she is happy today and she will be blessed more.

Only You Starring Angel Locsin, Sam Milby and Diether Ocampo Premieres Monday

I am interested to watch Only You (Philippine version) starring Angel Locsin, Sam Milby and Diether Ocampo premieres Monday - April 27. Some scenes were shot in Korea and earlier I was looking at the behind the scenes photos. I hope this is something new and exciting to watch.

Only You replaces I Love Betty La Fea which had its Bettyful Finale this evening (I missed it coz my son was having his DVD Mr. Bean marathon again for the nth time). This ABS-CBN new Primetime Bida show is a remake of the 2005 Korean drama which was also entitled Only You.

Still Awake and Active

It is late at night yet my son is still awake and active. He won't go to sleep earlier coz he obviously was waiting for his dad to come home from work. Now that hubby's home, he still joined us for an hour early for midnight snacks. My son just approached me and told me he wants to sleep already. he saw me still using my laptop and he said "Mama shutdown". Yes, he often tell me that when he wants my full attention and he wants to sleep already at night and he somehow knows that if I do not shutdown my laptop, I am still coming back.

I still wanna go online later when he is already sound asleep coz I wanna look for a certain book my sis was asking me to look for her online among the Amazon books. I tried searching earlier for awhile but could not find it yet. My son was also busy distracting me so I cannot concentrate well on my search. At least later he won't be able to disturb me anymore.

Okay off we go to sleep now. I hope I can still turn this on later or else I will just have to do the pending things I need to do early tomorrow.

Weekend Snapshot | Binignit


For my comeback to Weekend Snapshot, here is a shot of the delicious "binignit or ginataan" which is a merienda or snack that Filipinos usually cook during Holy Week. This was given by our neighbor next door which was delicious and it has my fave ingredient which is soft and chewy.

Wish I Can Go

A friend who is now based in Boston is going to CA with her family and in-laws for a vacation. She told me if I wanted to come along and how I wish I can go with her! As if it is just an hour away from here. She said we can stay in a San Diego hotel as her in-laws would be staying at one of their relatives house there.

I told her "Hello! How could I bring my physical body there?" Well you know what I need to go there, well I do not have them yet and it won't be that easy to get them you know. She said I can close my eyes and just dream about it for now and she will just send me the photos if she will meet there one of our friends way back. As they say there is nothing bad about dreaming as long as it motivates you to be more productive and make positive things a reality.

Susan Boyle's Got Talent and More Famous Now

If you heard of Susan Boyle, a contestant of Britain's Got Talent 2009 and if you recognize her as the latest YouTube Singing Sensation, then you would know that she has been making raves and not only proved to the world that she indeed got a talent for singing but that she has become more famous now as she has guested in CNN (they featured her many times for the past few days), Good Morning America, Today Show, Larry King Live and she will be guesting in Oprah.

Her YouTube video has reached 16 million views in the last time I checked yesterday and still continue to increase each day. She has amazed the world. But people from her home town had told news reporters that she has been singing for a long time. The song of Les Miserables' I Dreamed a Dream worked for her and indeed her dream is slowly coming true. It is like as if she has already won the BGT with the fame she has now. Amazing talent and humbling too!

Busy

Twitter friend must be so busy not to mention it is a Sunday and time for family day. I have been busy too doing house chores and finishing tasks here and there. I am also busy trying to divert my son from trying to play with my laptop while I am doing something online. He really wants to grab my attention when he knows I am busy online.

My other friends also experience that with their children who would also want to play with their PC or laptop and blog like them too. I am amused when my two year old son seeing me busy with my latop would tell his dad, my hubby "Mama post". I am glad my hubby took care of him tonight so I can search online for those which my dad wants me to find for him. Okay I am off to help my hubby with some tasks here at home for awhile. I'll just post another update in awhile when I finish helping my dear hubby.

Mr. Bean

The boys are into watching Mr. Bean again. I hope we can find a copy of the Mr. Bean Holiday movie coz hubby and I are sure my son would be happy to watch that and my son likes to watch the real Mr. Bean portrayed by the real Rowan Atkinson as compared to the animated series of Mr. Bean which he often takes for granted unlike the original one where his eyes are stuck to the TV screen and he really pays attention to the show. He laughs and enjoys watching Mr. Bean. Now i noticed my hubby is also enjoying himself.

The other night unfortunately we saw the Mr. Bean Holiday movie but our son was already fast asleep. He would have enjoyed watching it with us at HBO but it was so late at night then. Hubby promised he will look for a copy of it. I think we have a copy but I just do not know where we placed it.

Candle Set

I was just through looking at the Friendster photos of my friend Mercy who is living in Germany for many years now and I was attracted to her candle set which she has on her table in the living room in her Christmas photo album. I remember I have been looking for that last Christmas which I could have placed in our table when we had our Noche Buena.

I rarely check my Friendster but I was reminded by hubby when I remembered to confirm if my friend whose name I heard a few days ago had married a politician or not. Anyway, I also saw that Mercy's younger sis had come to Germany. Hmmm I had missed quite a lot of updates since I rarely log in to my account unlike two years ago.

Well I left a message for Mercy asking her if she can possibly help me have that same candle set she has in her photos. I have months before Christmas so I hope I have that by December. :)

Time to Sleep

It is almost midnight and I am done with my task now. I am also done hand washing two of my son's shirts which I had to do earlier otherwise he will have no clean shirt to change into for tomorrow after he takes his bath. He spilled his water on his shorts and shirt before he went to bed so I have to change him and I found out the shirts left were either too small for him to wear or they are dirty and in the basket. So even if I wanted to sleep early I had to wash and do some things I need to finish online before I go to bed.

Hmmmm I really need to discipline myself to sleep earlier so I would feel more rested during the day. But then I cannot work straight here when my son is awake unless my hubby would take him away from me and my laptop.

Okay before I make this longer than it is, I have to log off now and sleep. Night everyone!

Shocking News

Today I received news of two deaths, one from my eldest sis who texted us this morning that an uncle in my father's side died this morning and then late this evening I received another text from my kumare and friend informing me of the death of our school mate and my former classmate who died in a tragic way. I only have little details on the latter news. It is disturbing to think about it coz the death was tragic. It possibly had to do with the kind of job that person has. I was thinking of the family and child left behind. It must be hard to accept. I was surprised that person transferred to another government agency and when my kumare friend told me what agency it was, somehow I had an idea. Anyway, mare told me she will just call me. At least now I am more calm after knowing about that shocking news. May they rest in peace.

Waiting for the Day

Hubby called my mommy so he can let CT talk to my nephews there. I was also able to talk to my mom and she greeted me again for my b-day. She said she was calling yesterday morning but then no one would answer. I reminded her that we were at the beach.

Anyway, we came to talk about the day we have been waiting for. She said it will be tomorrow but I thought all along that it will still be next week. I just asked her to call me if she has any news. She said she will follow up the concerned office on that. She even mentioned the new office is near the office of the company I used to work before. I hope we will be able to get what we have been waiting for especially for my mom. Lord may they give it without further delay after waiting for 45 days.

Mr. Bean at Disney Channel

My son CT likes to watch Mr. Bean at Disney Channel. It is 7PM here and it is time for Mr. Bean. Hubby and I have taken note of the schedule when Mr. Bean is being shown in Disney Channel and also at ABS-CBN.

Sometimes I just do not like the animated series of Mr. Bean as it is quite more rude in its actions depicted plus that elderly woman who is the neighbor of Mr. Bean. The original version with the real and human Rowan Atkinson playing the part is better and more funny. But then as we watch it often most of the time at Disney Channel we have seen most of the episodes over and over again. The ABS-CBN seems to have some newer episodes which either we have missed before or they are really new episodes. Okay I have to go now and watch this episode with my son. he is calling out to me now to sit beside him while hubby is in the PC.
