He Loves Filipino-Style Spaghetti

The other night, I asked hubby what he'd like to eat and he instantly said "filipino style spaghetti bolognaise" hehehe. He loves the way I cook it. I am not saying that I am a chef or something but let's admit it that our filipino style spaghetti is really tasty and yummy. Agree? I mean there are many ways on how to prepare pasta but there is something undescribable with our spaghetti in Philippines. Hubby did spaghetti once here at home. I like it also but I prefer the filipino way. Here, when they prepare spaghetti, they just use the sauce and cheese and that's it. Preparation is very fast! I don't like it because I don't find it romantic or the person preparing it doesn't even made an effort while cooking. I told him to try the way filipinos prepare spaghetti. He was surprised with the ingredients I am using and told me that the bolognaise sauce is already enough. Nah! Not for me! I like it when I use some crushed onions and garlic, viande hachée, cheese and wine to drink it with. Now, he's like a baby craving for spaghetti.

My Friend's Family Is Complete AT Last

My very old friend Clyde sent me an email this afternoon. He’s very happy and proud to tell me that his family is complete at last. He has been dreaming for this day for many years already. Why years? Well, it’s a little bit personal. As a celebration, they went in Las Vegas for a week and had a great time there. His family loves Las Vegas very much. This time, they tried Tropicana Hotel and they love the amenities, service, entertainment, food and gaming there. Las vegas is the most famous place when it comes to casinos, poker games and slot machines you know and it’s something you shouldn’t miss if one day you’ll visit there. He told me that the casino at Tropicana Las Vegas features a very wide variety of slot machines and table games. For them, Tropicana Las Vegas is the only place that gives many casino promotions and giveaways. Sounds like they really had a great time right? On my part, I am very happy that his wish finally came true.

Hubby In Siquijor

Hubby and I love to do crazy things when together. We can be serious, funny, crazy at times and that's something I love about us. We act like kids when together. We punch eachother, tickle eachother, cuddle and many other things.

While I was still in PI and were having our vacation at Coral Cay Resort in Siquijor, I was trying to pretend that I am a journalist trying to get some suggestions or any recommendations from him, or anything that he has to say during his trip. And the result? Voila, this video hehehe. I took this video using my canon camera. I'm not that good but everytime we watch this in the computer, hubby and I are always laughing. I really found him cute especially when he says "Mabuhay".

Coral Cay Resort in Siquijor is one of the places we love. It's quite and the sunsets are very magnificent. The best sunset shots we took are from this province. We'd like to go back there again in the near future but I hope that the transportation from Cebu-Siquijor will be improving because it is a long trip huh moving from one place to another and transferring from one ferry or boat to another.

Swimming Or Baseball?

My brother loves sports very much. I am very happy that he is very much interested in trying different kinds of sports to keep him busy instead of spending his time with his friends. Being the eldest daughter and the eldest sister in the family, I have worries and fears for my younger siblings. Of course I prefer that they’ll be interested in sports instead of drugs. Right now, he is a little bit confused if he’ll try swimming or baseball. I’ve been telling him that I am always here to support him and I will provide him the tools and equipments that he will be needing in case he joins swimming or the baseball team at school. So far, he wanted to join the baseball team so I asked my mom to give him all the baseball equipments he needs like Baseball Gloves, base sets, bag and many others.

But anyway, if you want to buy any sports training equipment for your kids or siblings, shop at Their items are not bad at all and the prices are very affordable too. Their store is a yahoo secure shopping store and this is the only store that has a 5 stars customer rating. Check their website and their products available.

What A Lucky Day!!!

Yepeeee! What a lucky day I've got yeepeeee! Unbelievable! Until now, I am still jumping with so much joy because I finally grabbed a $50 offer from Payperpost. Eversince last night, I've been waiting and refreshing my laptop from time to time trying to have some luck. I missed the 3 opportunities worth $50 and 1 worth $500 huhuhuhu. I told hubby about it and he told me not to get disappointed because it is only $500 and maybe $1000 will be waiting for me hehehe. How I wish. First time I got something like this as I am always working during wednesdays and fortunately, today is my day off. Yepeeeee!!!!!!! I wish all the offers will be worth $50 always.

Say "NO" To Anorexia

I first saw this girl on Elle Magazine. The very first time I saw it, I thought it was just a cartoon something or a picture edited for a special campaign. But honestly, this girl on the picture is really the real one and that's how she really looks like in real person. She looks very skinny and she's suffering from anorexia. Months ago, it has been in the news everywhere that models in the fashion world must not be too skinny and they should gain weight. Why? Young women look up to them and follow them. Let's face it, what young people see on tv has a very big influence in someone's eyes and life. Many young women are very much willing to suffer their meals just to have a very petite size like the models. But on my part, I don't imagine myself as skinny as that.

Anyway, the model above is called Isabelle Caro, french and she's 27 years young. She got famous after she posed naked in an ad campaign in battling againt anorexia. From her blog, she said that she's been suffering anorexia at the age of 13. Photographs posted on magazines and ads were shot by the controversial italian photographer whose name is Oliviero Toscani. What's their aim of exposing this kind of photo and this girl? It is to show everyone the reality of this illness, caused in most cases by the stereotypes imposed by the world of fashion. If I remember it very well, last year, super-skinny models were banned from Madrid Fashion Week. The ban covers girls with a body mass index of below 18 -- 18.5 to 25 is considered to be "normal."

Now let me ask you, do you want to have that super skinny body too like models or like her? Better think about it before it's too late.

Isabelle's blog in french

St. Emilion In France

We woke up at around 2 o'clock in the afternoon last sunday and the weather was quite good. Instead of staying at home watching tv, hubby and I decided to visit St. Emilion. It is one of the touristic places here in south of france.

Saint-Emilion is located 35 km north-east from Bordeaux, between Libourne and Castillon-La-Bataille. This medieval town stands proudly at the top of a hill overlooking the Dordogne valley, and was built in the shape of an amphitheatre. From the moment the bell-tower can be seen, Saint-Emilion is an enchantment. The commune covers an area of 27 km².

Visiting this place is really a must if you guys will be coming here in France. In general, it is very touristic in the month of August but tourits were still around even if automn is already here. Of course when there is sun, much better to travel around and to take good pictures. That's my opinion. But anyway, this place is really beautiful. The structures are unique and ohhhh, one of the tasty wines come from St. Emilion. Their wines are in my favorite lists you know.

The Legend - Bob Marley

Tonight, there was this tv program of Bob Marley. Hubby loves Bob Marley very much. Believe it or not, while watching the program...the hairs on his skin are standing. Bob Marley is really the legend and the father of reggae. Honestly, I know his name but I don't know how he looks like except tonight while watching one of his concerts at the tv. I love his music and I've been listening to his hits eversince. I honestly don't have any idea how he died but this guy will always exist in people's mind and heart. Here's the video of Bob Marley in No Woman No Cry. Enjoy!!

Table Tennis

Do you play sports? There are many sports available out there but on my part, I love swimming very much. In Philippines, basketball and table tennis are one of the famous sports. I have tried doing basketball but I don’t like it. I’ve tried playing table tennis years ago but I found myself funny because I was making my own rules everytime I played it with my friends. Do you know that this sport is very famous in Asia and Europe? The answer is a big YES! A little history about it is that it originally started in England as an after-dinner amusement for upper-class Victorians in 1880. Surprising right?

To become a professional table tennis player doesn’t happen in 1 night. It requires a lot of practice and a lot of patience because there are many offensive strokes, grips and defensive strokes to study. For table tennis dummies out there, don’t worry because there are instructional table tennis DVDs available which will help you master this sport as fast as possible. So relax and enjoy!

What A Long Boring Day Ouff!

Today is my appointment to have my formation something for the life here in France. It is just a little introduction or information informing us as aliens here like what are our rights in this country, what agency to call if you are searching for a job and etc. I wasn't that happy because of the fact that I have to wake up early. Well, it is something I'm not use of doing but I know that I need to train myself because soon, I have to wake up earlier than today for my job and it would be a whole day job. Seriously, I am not ready for it but as long as I am earning a lots of $$$$$ I'm very much willing to wake up early hehehe. Anyway, it was nice because I met new people there. But it is a little bit cold and I am very lazy in wearing pull over or anything. Lunch was served for free at the restaurant. I was able to interact mostly of my time with the japanese people in french language. So surprising coz their translator is just a neighbor of mine. Her house is just a walking distance from the residence where I live. They were nice but they were timid as well. My eyes were really heavy and if I could only placed a toothpick in between, I probably have done it but not possible. The session ended almost 5 this afternoon and I was hopping from one boutique to another when I was out of the building. Huhuhu I still have many things to do. Tonight, we have our doctor appointment for vaccine, have to cook dinner, have to do my sponsored posts and hopefully I could sleep after that one. I long to hug my pillows and hubby already huhuhuh.

My Nieces 4th Birthday!

My nieces (twins) hiding trying to hide themselves with their grandma (my mom) during my wedding day

Today is my nieces birthday. As usual, they are always treated like princess. A party is always there with little give-aways for the kids, balloons, cake and food of course. This is the first time they celebrated their birthday without me but I make it in a point that they’ll always remember me as their aunt. They were happy because I asked my mom to buy them new dresses and they were very happy with it. I talked to them and they were very proud to tell me that they have this and that and they have many visitors at home. Well, kids will always be kids you know. My mom on the other hand is very busy now at home especially at the kitchen preparing the foods. My family at home are not really use to of doing it because I am the one who does the food preparation when there are celebrations. And as I am far away from them now, they have to check the recipes I gave them from time to time. I am very happy that my entire family is happy. This is occasion is like a reunion also with my relatives (mother’s side) because all of them are coming to celebrate my nieces birthday.

To my nieces, happy 4th birthday! I am very proud that both of you are very smart kids. I am very happy as well that both of you show the interests in studying or in going to school. Love you my dearest angels *muah*

Sorry the picture is quite old. The pix I have here in my laptop are quite big so I don’t have any other choice but to pick this picture out as it is smaller. I mean the file is smaller.

My Personal Diet

I Love Natural Colors For Furnitures

You Are 83% Real

There's hardly a person on this earth more real than you are.

You have no problem showing people who you are, flaws and all.

You're very comfortable with yourself. And because of this, you're able to live an exciting, interesting, and challenging life.

Well, well, well... I can really say that I am the type of a woman who is very much contented and happy with the blessings I always have. I am not perfect nor I don't have that Miss Universe look but I can say that I am happy and I am very expressive. Life is beautiful for me and challenging.

If you haven't tried this quis yes, go grab it and considered yourself being tagged by ME!

All About Wedding

My wedding will be less than one month from now. I will tell you honestly that I was very problematic searching for the best and unique wedding favor ideas. I’ve discussed my ideas with hubby but we always argue on something. Just small arguments. After talking and sharing our opinions, we ended up by choosing the best thing and that is something I like about us.

Wedding is a very nice celebration but it is problematic too because there are many details to study and to prepare before the big day. These wedding magazines and websites are really helpful. I can’t imagine my life without it. But honestly, my inlaws are very much involved with the preparations. My inlaws are the ones who do the wedding preparations here in France especially in dealing with the chateau, the florists, the food, distribution of invitations and many others. Give-aways decision is not final yet but it will be something our guests will surely love.

Things I Don't Like To Hear

A tag from Girlie. Thanks very much for this tag. Well, well, are the infos:

1. You’re too thin! (huh? others find me thin while others say I'm gaining weight *rolling eyes*)

2. I don't like the arrangements you did (Hire a designer then!)

3. You're staying that much infront of the computer (Go and get me another computer hehehe)

4. You stay too long at the shower (What can I do? I love to smell good)

5. You don't know how to drive the car! (That's why you have to send me at the driving school)

6. You're hard headed! (Touch your head and tell me if it's soft lolz)

7. You're lazy! (duh? try to do the things I do and let's see if I am lazy)

Those who have told the TRUTH are:
Ana à Dijon


What don’t you want to hear? Please tell me so I won’t commit a mistake of asking you.

Would You Be A Cool Parent?

You Will Be a Cool Parent

You seem to naturally know a lot about parenting, and you know what kids need.

You can tell when it's time to let kids off the hook, and when it's time to lay down the law.

While your parenting is modern and hip, it's not over the top.

You know that there's nothing cool about a parent who acts like a teenager... or a drill sergeant!

I don't have any kids yet but sometimes, I used to ask myself on what kind of a mom will I be. When I'll have kids someday, I'd like that my kids will treat me not just as their mom but as their bestfriend as well, whom they could share their deepest secrets with. It is that kind of relationship I wanted to have to my future kids. I don't want to be too strict with them or too light. Being a parent and a mother is not an easy job but I can say that I will be doing my best to make them a responsible individual and that we (with hubby), as parents, will do our very best to give them the best things in life.

Whirlpool Refrigerator I Wanted To Buy

I want this!!!

We have a very simple life in Philippines. We have daily household chores to do but it is my mom who does majority of the job at home. I remember one time, I went at the mall with my niece and we visited at the appliance center. I was thinking of either purchasing a washing machine or a refrigerator. Too bad because the models I wanted were not available. So, I ended up purchasing a simple washing machine. My next project for my family is to buy a very good refrigerator. There are many good brands available everywhere but the one I always prefer is Whirlpool. I love this brand very much especially their Whirlpool Refrigerators. The models are very elegant, classy and sophisticated. At least now, I found a store where it is possible to purchase this beautiful refrigerator at a very reasonable price.

Check their store and their other appliances available!

Vin D'Honneur At The Cabane

Last saturday was our vin d'honneur at my parents-in-law's place. I wasn't that really stressed because my my parent's -in-law took good care of everything. Maman took good care in making a rendez-vous pour moi with the hairstylist and make-up artist. She was very busy too with the flowers while papa on the other hand took good care of the champagnes or drinks for the guests, the ballons, the trucs to use at the venue and many others. Both of them really did this event really magnificent. They were more stressed and busier than I do and hubby.

We left here in Bordeaux last friday evening and we arrived very late in Paris. Of course we have to wake up early the next day to have my make-up done and hair. My sister-in-law was with me to accompany me all the way. Sya taga drive ng kotse shhhhh para di ma gets lolz. Parents-in-law were very busy too while I was having my feminine affair. I was a bit nervous because all the guests were french but things went fine, smooth and everybody were having a great time. This vin d'honneur was made specially for my inlaw's friends and neighbors. Vin d'honneur and wedding day itself is separated because we want the wedding day to be more intimate between families and friends. Voila! Feels so good because we got so many checks hehehe.

Pour ma belle famille, merci beaucoup!

A Gift From My Friend Marie..THANK YOU!!!

A very good friend of mine named Marie aka Vanidosa gave me the complete belly dancing costume set as her birthday gift for me. So sweet di ba? When she first told me about it, I was really surprised because I never thought she's really serious with what she said. How I met her? Well, I met her with her cousin in Glorietta Mall in Manila when I was having an eb with other 2 friends. We had lunch at Italiannis Restaurant. What do we have in common? We both love belly dancing but she and her cousin are more graceful than me. She does her belly dancing at Regine Tolentino's place while I did it at Gold's Gym. I wanted to join her class but as it is a little bit far for me, I didn't have any other choice but to enroll at the gym. It is one of the many reasons why I decided to have my own blog. For me to be able to keep in touch with my good friends. I tell you, I just met her once personally and after that, we just exchange e-mails, textes and with blogging of course.

Ate Marie, thanks very much for these gifts. It's really too much! I honestly love all of it! Now, I am very much inspired to do belly dancing infront of the tv with these costumes. Sans hubby of course hehehe. It's a dream come true for me because I've been dreaming to have my own belly dancing costume and now, VOILA! Wish granted :-). Hubby loves it too and he said thank you also. Thanks very much again. Wow, so amazing that I have so many good friends here online. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you again Ate Marie ****muuuuaaaaahhhhh****.

I would like to thank Ana too because she mailed these costumes going here in my residence. O di ba? Sobrang dami kong very nice friends. Ana, thanks very much talaga ***muaaaaahhh*** too.

Can't Find The Magazine I Am Looking For

As our wedding day is getting closer, I can say that I'm excited for it even if hubby and I were both a little bit busy. Honestly, I am not that really busy with my wedding because my parents-in-law take good care of it. I have some things on my mind like what hairstyle will I prefer to have, what additional personal decorations I'm going to add and many others. Hubby is busier than I do. Normal because he's the one working the most important things here as I don't have any knowledge nor negotiate with the french people. They'll be too unlucky if they'll be negotiating with me because I always ask for discounts. Hubby calls me MISS DISCOUNT lolz. But anyway, I've been searching for famous wedding magazines that I found in Philippines but I couldn't find it here. Grgrgrgg I've been hopping from one website to another making a lot of research too. Well, wish me luck guys and gals!

I Am So Tirrrreeeedddd

I couldn't understand why I don't feel so good since yesterday. We left Paris not so early last sunday but I still feel tired. I don't know if it is because of blogging or something but my body really feels heavy especially my eyes. On the other hand, I am very happy because my blog was accepted in one of the sites where it is possible to earn an income by writing some reviews. I received 6 offers instantly and did it before the deadline. I took the other offers too from the other websites coz I really need to earn more compared in the previous months. Hirap kumita ng pera no? Hayyy, buhay nga naman. As I will be working early demain than the usual schedule, I long to hug my pillows and sleep like a baby. I hope I will managed to do that instead of staying infront of the computer till 2 in the morning lolz. It is a little bit cold here now and signs for automn are coming. I'll post some pictures soon when I've got the time. I just wish that I will not have any colds soon nor overfatigue.

I Am An Avid Reader Of Elle Magazine

Is this proof enough that I am really a magazine addict and an avid reader of Elle? Well, picture above says it all. Every week, I receive this magazine and it is in french. The most interesting part is that when I am reading it, I understand it but when I am reading a book or something else...hehehehe I don't understand it or anything. Hubby said what a magic. Well, normal I can easily understand it because it is a magazine for women and even if there are words that I don't understand, but with the pictures inside or with the phrases, it gives me an idea what it is exactly. I remember from the movie Legally Blonde when Reese Whiterspoon had one of the shots and said that this kind of magazines are women's bible. Well, let's just say that I am learning new things because of it especially about the trendy things. I am not that fashionable or anything but it's good to have an idea what are in the IT list right? Because of this magazine, I am able to practice my french vocabulary as well.

Am I Vain Or Not?

I don't really know if I am that vain or not but yes, I've got things which I consider as part of my daily must-haves. One number there is the laptop as I love to blog now and I always check the sites if I have any opportunities or not. While waiting for the time to arrive for my work, you'll always find me infront of the laptop. I spent hours surfing, browsing my other friend's blog, checking for my earnings and thinking for articles that I will be writing. My personal stuffs are something I can't live without especiall the products for my hair and face. I've been very careful especially about my face. I can't live without this facial wash and I can't sleep if I don't wash my face before sleeping. Everytime I go out also, a wallet, my translator and my 2 other phones must be with me all the time. Well, I think majority of us can't live without the cellphone. The elle magazine is part of my daily life also already. Every week, I got new mgazines and it makes me updated especially about the fashion world. So what do you think? Am I just natural or too vain?

The Make-Up Artist I had

Three weeks before my wedding in Philippines, I had my trial make-up with 2 different make-up artists. My knowledge is very limited when it comes to cosmetics. Both of the make-up artists I had were professionals. I asked both of them how they got this kind of talent and both of them have the same answer. Do you know what it is? They were trained in one of the prestigious beauty school. I remember one of them told me that she loves cosmetics and this beauty school where she enrolled helped her turn her passion into a career. And now, she’s one of the famous make-up artist in Cebu. Oh my god, she’s really good and I like the way she handles her clients. In this shop where she’s working at present, when somebody wants her to be the make-up artist or hair stylist, customers have to make their reservation in advance. Her schedule is really loaded and I can tell you, she’s very pretty too.

A Real Paradise

Hubby and I love beautiful places with magnificent view of the sea. A place with crystal blue water is a must because we both love to swim, to snorkel and to drive and a place where there is a nice view of the sunset is a must too. In general, we prefer to be far from the crowd for us to really enjoy and relax. Does that sound romantic? Well, such kind of a place is a dream vacation for us already and I seriously couldn’t wait for our next holidays very soon. But anyway, one of the places I’m very much interested with is to visit Virgin Islands. From the research I did, one of the most famous and interesting place there is Caret Bay because it is a place where there is an amazing aquamarine water which is perfect for snorkeling, fishing, surfing and swimming. I love their luxurious villas too because it is located atop cliff overlooking the north shore of the Island of St. Thomas. All their villas are equipped with state-of-the-art electronics and with patio furnitures. Perfect place for honeymooners right? Oh, let me tell you that this place is also perfect for intimate weddings. Well, I will be telling hubby tonight how I found this place.

A Surprise Call From A Friend

I got a surprise call today from a close friend of mine who lives in USA. I am very happy to hear that she’s happily married to a very kind and loving american guy. Her husband is a businessman and they always travel because of her husband’s job. They always stay at the condotels when they’re travelling. But do you know that Condo Hotels are also known as condotels or apartotels? If not, then, now you know. Her husband is into real estate business and he thinks that Condo hotels are one of the hottest products and a very good investment in today’s real estate market. Such kind of investment is not a big joke ha because it is a luxury property that we always find in outstanding locations. Well, I don’t know exactly when he’ll start this investment but I am very happy that both of them are very fine and happy. I honestly miss this girl because she's like a sister to me.

I Love Shopping!

I am a woman who loves clothes very much. I admit that I love to shop and shopping is my other form of relaxation especially when I am really tired and stressed. Last week, my favorite online clothing store has a very cute bath robe and I bought it immediately without any hesitation. Why? Because the price is very reasonable, it’s cozy, it feels good on the skin and it really looks lovely. Now, I am smiling and content wearing it.

Car Spoiler For Car Fanatics

Each individual has his or her own addiction. Women love clothes and shoes while men love cars and gadgets. Agree? Here in france, majority of car owners always look for updates to enhance the appearance of their cars. The young one’s for example, they use car spoiler to have a nice and sporty look on the exterior of their car. Spoiler in general is a device made and utilized by sports car. But guess what? This external part is always out of stock at the nearest car parts store here at home. Hubby is happy that he found a very interesting shop that sells affordable car parts and I am very glad that he found one.

Condom? A City???

Last weekend we went to Perpignan to attend a birthday party of my inlaws' closest friends. We had a great time there and we enjoyed the celebration. I was happy because I was able to socialize with the frenchies. Good news was that I didn't got drunk after a glass of wine. It was a complete miracle for me. Why? In general, I am already drunk after having my first class of wine hehehe. We were thankful because the weather was really good. And as Perpignan is in the south and is closer at the Mediterranean Sea, it was a little bit windy but very hot at the same time.

On our way back home going here in Bordeaux, I noticed this panneaux. Did you see that Condom word? I asked hubby if it's an advertisement or what but he told me that it is a small city in South of France. Surprising no? I, myself, was very much surprise. I wanted to visit this small city to see how it is but we didn't have enough time to do it, so maybe in the near future. I asked hubby why the frenchies choose this word as a name of the city here but he himself doesn't have any idea at all. Well, I'm just sharing my discoveries here lolz

Our Weekend In Perpignan

These are the pictures I took last weekend when we went in Perpignan. It is in south of France. We went there to attend a birthday party of my inlaws' closest friends. Despite that I was so busy last friday and slept around 1+ in the morning, still, I managed to woke up at around 5:45 in the morning. So tired and sleepy but we needed to left home at around 7 in the morning because Perpignan is 5 hours drive by car from Bordeaux. We were a little bit lost in searching the retaurant but not bad. The frenchies are really nice and they all welcomed me with opern arms as I am the only one who is not french in their group. Never I felt OP or anything. We all had a great time there and I did enjoyed it. I love to socialize the people here now. But anyway, didn't manage to post all the pictures because photobucket can't manage to carry all the files I have. I will post more pictures soon!

He Says I Am A Chef Now daww

Fish Pangat

Hubby loves it everytime I cooked something for him. When I think of doing something, I make sure that he doesn't have any single idea what will I be preparing for him. A couple of nights ago, I cooked a fish menu for him. We don't eat seafoods that much here because seafoods here are a little bit expensive compared there in Philippines. I always make it in a point to prepare tasty seafoods for him. And one of the recipes I tried to cook is called Fish Pangat. Here's the recipe:

Good for 4 persons:

500 g Lapu-lapu fish fillet, 125 g per fillet (or any white fish)
Pinch of salt and pepper
4 pcs calamansi
2 pcs Onions, julienne
4 pcs tomatoes, medium julienne
10 pcs iba or kamias, julienne (I didn't use this one)
1 c olive oil
2 tsp coriander

1. Preheat oven to 220°C.
2. Cut 4 aluminum foil, each with a diameter of 16 inches. Set aside
3. Wash fillet and pat dry with kitchen towel. Carefully cut fish fillet in the middle to form a pocket. Season with salt, pepper and calamansi. Set aside.
4. In a pan, sauté onions, tomatoes, and iba in olive oil. Add coriander and a pinch of salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
5. Insert sauted iba into the fish fillet pockets. Lay a fillet on one side of the aluminum foil, about 1 1/2 inches off center. Fold the foil to seal each parchment tightly.
6. Place the fish parcel on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets. Serve with rice.

I didn't post the picture of the fish at the aluminum foil as the shots were not so good. You may adjust the ingredients according to your taste. Me for instance, I didn't use iba and I only use 1 lemon as the lemon here is big.

6th Year Anniversary 9/11

This evening, hubby and I were watching a film on the tv that has something to do this day. I don't know if you guys know that today, September 11, is the 6th year anniversary. If not, then, yes, it's the 6th year today. I am not going to say anything bad or to post my political views or something. While watching this film Flight 93, I was crying like a baby. It hurts seeing these people making a phone call to their families and loved ones saying that it was their last call and informing them how much they loved their families before they departed in this world. I couldn't imagine what will I be doing if I will be in such kind of situation. I respect people no matter what their views and religion is. I guess, this situation is one of the events that marked and changes the world. Others may say it turns to bad while others said that it's for good. It's just so sad knowing that hundreds of people lost their lives on that day 9/11. Innocent people like mothers, fathers, grandparents, sisters, daughters, friends, pilots and stewardess. This event is something that will always remind us especially the loved ones of these people who died. I am not going to write a long post about this topic as it is making my heart into 2. But, let's join and say a little prayer to everyone who departed during this day and that hopefully, I wish, there will be peace in this world.

I Was Touched By An Angel

This afternoon, I was touched by this little girl that I use to pick up everyday. We were walking on our way back home and we were talking. When we crossed the road, she saw a green bottle at the sidewalk. Do you know what she said? She said that it isn't good at all to place a bottle or any garbages at the sidewalk. It should be disposed off properly and should be segregated well. Wow! I was shocked when I hear her talking that way acting as if she's a big girl. But seriously, my pride melted down because I am older than her but I don't seriously practice it at home. I am too lazy to do it. I know I shouldn't be doing it anymore but my laziness is killing me. It is true that kids here are thought how to act as a responsible person. And honestly, they act more mature than their elders like me. Even my teacher shared this at the class that her own son was telling her to recyle and to segregate the trashes well. Kids here are thought about these things at the school. I am happy because I am learning many things from this little girl. She knows many things than I do. It's just so surprising for me that she's really like a big girl...talking and acting like she's an adult. Perhaps, I should open my eyes now and start moving now. I was really touched this afternoon and it made me realize that I shouldn't let my laziness eat me. But instead, to help and to set as a good example by showing and by helping in saving our nature.

Nice Matters Award

I originally got this award from Melody on my other blog (Macherie). As I have 2 blogs, I decided to post this award here too. Besides, it's the same person and it's meeeeeee! I'm seriously happy that several people that I met thru blogging found me nice or something. Thanks very much! I am just a natural girl. I am not perfect either and I also have flaws. Blogging has allow me to meet many people all over the world and I am very happy because in reality, it isn't that really easy for me to easily have friends. But it feels so good when somebody tells me that I am nice or something. Thanks very much.

I'd like to give this award also to:

She told me that she had her vacation in London together with her italian boyfriend. They are very adventurous and they love to visit places that are new to them.

My First Work Check

Last wednesday I started working from 4:30 pm-7 Pm. That is my normal sched everyday. I was very much surprise when my boss handed me the check and told me that it is my first paycheck. I said WOOOWWWW when I saw it. I wasn't expecting at all that she will be paying me that fast as I just started last wednesday and then, voila, she gave me her first payment last friday. It feels so good because I just worked a couple of hours per day and I earned something like that already. It's a little bit big already when converted into peso. Oh yes, when I receive euros, I convert it directly in peso. I wish we earn something like that in Philippines but then I know it's very impossible to happen. Well, if you guys will be asking me if I spent this money already, the answer is no. I deposited it directly on my bank account. Hehehe I want it to have an interest ;-p

I Ended Up Buying Skechers Instead Of Crocs

I've been searching for a boutique here in Bordeaux that sells crocs sandals. I've been searching it for weeks already. First, I went to Bordeaux Lac mall to check the stores there but they all tell me that they don't have any stock available and they only had several pieces displayed during summer. I was sad at first but I didn't give up. Hubby and I went to Bordeaux centre last weekend but the stores at the center only have 1 style available. Too bad. Instead of hopping for more stores again, I ended up purchasing this black thongs from Skechers. I love the light brown color but they don't have my size. The owner said I have very small size and teased me that I should look at children's store for my sizes. I don't know if I'll be happy with this comment or what. As I don't have any choice, I decided to take the black one as my other black thong here at home is very dirty and ugly. I am still searching for havaianas flip flops but difficult to find the ones I like. Perhaps, I'll do it in Philippines because cheaper and more models to choose from hehehe. I am not that really extravagant but I wanted to reward myself. Well, this thong is the only reward for myself. Syempre, have to save more. I must admit that I have a flip flop collector especially when it comes to havaianas.

I'm Sick Again

This week started to be a little bit cold here. It is sunny but it is windy too at the same time. When the temperature is like this, my lips gets dry and I get colds. I don’t like it when I’ve got colds because I don’t like to take medicines. I don’t like how it taste. Yes, I am like a kid but I prefer to suffer than to take medicines. Even if the tablet is very tiny, it is very, very difficult for me to swallow it. I don’t know why I’m like that but we are all unique. I am unique pero medyo weird nga lang ;-p. I am a little bit careful because I pick up a small kid at the school everyday and I don’t want her to get sick as well. But it seems like it’s the contrary, she has colds first and then me. I am quite sensitive when it comes to dust or when I see someone doing accho or something. The weakest part of my body has always been my nose because I easily get colds or flu. But I will surely be on a rest during the weekend. Let me share you what I found about colds:

What is a cold?

A cold is a contagious respiratory infection that is caused by a virus. More than 200 different viruses can cause colds.

What are the symptoms of a cold?
-Runny nose
-Sore throat
-Nasal congestion
-Fever may be present, especially in children

These symptoms usually occur two to three days after infection and will usually end in seven to 10 days.

How are colds treated?
There is no cure for a cold, but getting enough rest is the best way to make a quick recovery. Several remedies may shorten a cold’s duration and help you feel better. Talk with your doctor before taking any medication or giving medication to your child.

Over-the-counter cold medications may relieve the symptoms of a cold. However, the benefits of these medications are minimal.

Some of these medications include the following:
-Acetaminophen relieves the aches and pains of a cold without upsetting the stomach.
-Aspirin should not be given to children under the age of 18 because of its link to Reye’s Syndrome, a disorder that mostly affects children 4 to 12 years old and causes brain damage and death.
-Decongestants relieve nasal congestion.
-Antihistamines are used to stop a runny nose and sneezing.
-Cough suppressants may diminish a cough in adults, but these medications have not been found to be beneficial for children.
-Expectorants loosen mucous so that it can be easily expelled.
-Drinking plenty of fluids will keep the nose and throat moist and will loosen mucous. Stay away from alcohol and caffeine because they have a drying effect.

How can you keep from getting a cold?
-Wash your hands--especially before eating and preparing food, after using the bathroom, after wiping your nose, and after coming in contact with someone who has a cold.
-Avoid touching your eyes and nose to prevent the spread of viruses from your hands.
-Avoid contact with those who have a cold.
-Clean frequently used surfaces (such as doorknobs) with a virus-killing disinfectant.
-Use hand sanitizers when water is not available.
-Get enough sleep, eat a healthy diet, and exercise. This will strengthen your immune system and enable you to fight off infections easier.

When does a cold require a doctor’s care?
Contact your doctor if you have any of the following:

-High fever
-Chest pain
-Greenish mucous
-Ear pain
-An asthma flare-up

You may also have a bacterial infection, which can be diagnosed and treated by your doctor. Children with colds should be watched closely, and a doctor should be contacted if children have a high fever, are wheezing, are not eating, are sleepier than usual, cry a lot, or have ear or stomach pain.

He Loves Chocolate Cakes And Brownies!

Last week, I decided to try our oven here at home. I don't really use it that much. It's hubby who cooks the meals at home operated by the oven. I'm very lazy to do it. And as I was very free last week, I wanted to surprise hubby by baking brownies. He likes to eat chocolate cake for his breakfast and he loves it. He also likes it as his dessert. Here's the recipe if you guys are interested with it:

Fudge Brownies

150 gm [1 cup] plain flour
1/8 tsp fine salt
170 gm [6 oz] dark chocolate
1 tsp vanilla extract
125 gm [1/2 cup] butter - softened
170 gm [3/4 cup] caster sugar (superfine)
110 gm [1/2 cup] firmly packed soft brown sugar
3 large eggs
120 gm [1 cup] roughly chopped pecan or walnuts

1. Grease and flour lightly a 9-inch (23 cm) square pan. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/fan 160C/gas mark 4. I use 140C here at home
2. Mix the flour and salt well then set aside.
3. Break chocolate into pieces and melt in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.
4. Beat the butter, sugars, and vanilla until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes).
5. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.
6. Beat in the melted chocolate mixture.
7. Add in the flour and beat at low speed until smooth.
8. Pour in 2/3 of the nuts.
9. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the rest of the nuts on top.
10. Bake for 40-45 minutes until a thin skewer poked in the middle comes out clean but not dry - DO NOT overbake!
11. Remove from oven and cool in the pan for a few minutes then turn out to a rack to cool completely. Cut into squares and serve.
