More Light

Just a few days ago we requested for one of the caretakers and helpers in the apartment if he can cut or just trim the tree right in front of our unit. This morning when we woke up, I saw the floor outside the front door a little messy with leaves and other dirt. Then I immediately looked up and saw the left side cleared and we can see the clouds and sky up above a sight which used to be covered of the leaves and branches of the tree.

There is more light into the front area of our unit from now on. It feels like the time when we just moved in here a few years ago when it was so open and no shade from any tree and branches with leaves up there.

When we came home after attending Sunday mass at the mass, having Sunday lunch and a little grocery errand, we saw the front door exposed to the sun and it will be hotter but there will be more light into the front window of our living room area from now on. Initially I thought they didn't get the instructions but I guess we will appreciate how they did it because while there will be more dust coming in due to that unfinished part of the road up ahead in our street, at least there is more light coming in the front area of our place from now on. We no longer turned on our light inside since there is more light especially when the sun is shining bright outside this summer time even in the afternoon.

Water Fountain

There is a newly finished building that we pass by sometimes on our way to the mall that has an outdoor fountain right in front of its entrance. My son was initially curious on where the flowing water comes from and we had to explain to him how these outdoor water fountains work.

I have read somewhere before that water fountains attract abundance and good fortune. Maybe that's the reason why the building had one installed right in front of the main entrance of the new building.

It made me think it would be nice if we had one in our small front yard. Yes am just wishful thinking as I was looking into the best selection of outdoor fountains the other night while waiting was doing some important stuff that I needed to finish before finally calling it a night. The one I found online and shown here in the photo has a nice design. This one would be perfect to place inside the living room as well. I wish I can convince the husband to get this one when our budget allows us to.

Dessert to Beat the Heat

Looking for a sweet, cold dessert to beat the heat? The halo-halo is one of the popular and sweet summer treats that one could think of. Since summer started, I would look for this wherever it is available and eat it to feel good despite the heat of summer 2013.

You bet it was a hot summer day and going around to and from school for our little boy made me crave for something delicious and cold to beat the summer heat.


What else did I ever think of? Yes it is the Pinoy halo-halo of Mang Inasal that is also among the cheapest I have bought so far. We went to the mall and had a late lunch with my hubby. We immediately saw Mang Inasal from outside the mall and decided to go there even though I was planning to go elsewhere for lunch.

This halo halo they served tastes really good. It is really sweet and delicious. I love the macapuno they used. You know sometimes with each branch of the same resto chain, they could vary with the taste somehow depending on how much of the ingredients and the quality of the ingredients they use and put in the halo halo. We know there are standard that they have to follow but sometimes they would really differ in the serving. This costs P49.

As I said this particular serving of halo halo was really good and delicious. Sweeter than the first two times I tried their halo-halo at a different branch in AMall.

Thank you Mang Inasal for this petite serving yet delicious and more affordable dessert to beat the summer heat.

Coins

Getting shiny, new coins makes me think once again of starting to collect them once again for the next coin shower. A tradition that we practice in the family whenever there are special family celebrations especially during birthdays, Christmas and New Year family celebrations.

I thought about the shiny silver coins I have been getting a change lately from the stores in the mall. There were silver eagle coins that got me interested in a few months back. That was the time when I was curious about those accurately graded high quality coins that one can buy. 

Well my coin collection could use a new start and I can fill up my still almost empty blue plastic piggy bank for more shiny, new coins to collect.

Excited for Despicable Me 2

 

Yes the boys and I are excited for Despicable Me 2 in cinemas this 2013. This is a sequel to the 2010 animated film Despicable Me movie of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment.

My little boy is the one most excited among the three of us. He first saw this and he said he wants to watch it in the cinema. Had to tell him it ain't showing just yet. But the three of us will surely be watching this movie in the cinema and if there is 3D version then we will save up for that because this movie should be watched in 3D... say IMAX 3D! 

This movie in 3D will surely be worth watching it as we have observed in the movie teasers and trailers shown in cinemas already.
