Sidebar's New Look

Oufff! I'm planning to change my header once again but I couldn't make up my mind as to which design shall I be posting here. I'm thinking of a new look here once again by touching the the html code of the template only instead of downloading a new theme. I just want to change the colors in everything here like the sidebar, wrapper and etc. I also deleted some of the unnecessary things in my sidebar that made it look very long and non-sense. So far, it has changed a little bit. I am not done yet coz my eyes are weary and I am so sleepy right now. So far so good and I'm happy that I managed to do something here before leaving going in Normandie

Fitness Equipment At Home


In the near future, (take note, I said in the future ha and not now) I really would like us to have our own treadmill at home. As I am very lazy to go out and to go for a jog, seeing a treadmill of our own in the corner of the house makes me believe that it will encourage me to stand up and to get my booty moving. Going at the gym does exist in my mind but thinking of the time waiting for the bus and the other type of commute, jezzz, that made me lazy already. Better to have a fitness equipment at home instead of paying for a monthly fee somewhere.

Home Body Wrap Kits


Now that summer will be 2 months away from now, I’m thinking of purchasing anti-cellulite body wrap products that I found out at worldofhair.com. It has been very long you know since the last time I had an appointment at the spa and to have these body wrap items will surely make me feel like I am being pampered once again right in the comfort of my own home. Do you guys have any idea how much it cost? It cost only $49.95 only that’s why I’m really interested to try these products for myself.

What's Your Ideal Career?




Your Career Type: Enterprising



You are engertic, ambitious, and sociable.

Your talents lie in politics, leading people, and selling things or ideas.



You would make an excellent:



Auctioneer - Bank President - Camp Director

City Manager - Judge - Lawyer

Recreation Leader - Real Estate Agent - Sales Person

School Principal - Travel Agent - TV Newscaster



The worst career options for your are investigative careers, like mathematician or architect.



Thinking as to what career I'd like to have here in France makes me confusing. Confusing because I know that it will be difficult for me to find a white collar job here so I have to start from the smallest position and hopefully one day, I'll reach my dream career. Career subject has been a very important subject for me here because at the agencies here like searching for a job or evaluation for the french class, they always ask me as to what kind of job I'd wanted to have in the future. Everytime somebody asks me this question, I always say that I wanna do this and that and that but I know from myself that I can't do all these things at the same time. I have to only choose one field for them to suggest or to tell me as to which formation will be perfect for me.

The Best Generator



Searching for a gift for someone is sometimes a very tough job for me. There are many items available in the market but it’s confusing for me if that specific article will be perfect for him/her. Today, my problem is solved when I discovered this magnificent Gift Idea Generator. By clicking the budget column, the age of the person whom I’ll be offering the gift, his/her character and his/her gender, it then leaded me to a page where it’s possible to find these best and perfect items for my beloved one. Oufff! I’m so glad a generator like this existed. Friends, try this gift generator too giftgen.co.uk.

The Little Mermaids


This picture was taken last year when I went back in PI for a vacation. We treated the entire family to stay with us at the resort (the place where I got married) before going back here in France. These 2 young kids you see here are my nieces and yes, they are twins (my sister is in the middle). I'm missing these my nieces and my nephew so much. I can say that they sticked to me like a glue eversince especially the one in the right side. She thinks that I am her hehehehe. They love to swim very much and they're really brave. I'm thinking of sending them for a swimming lesson because it is possible for me to see from them that they're really interested at it. Mind you, they even went at the deepest part of the pool and kicked as possible as they could. They're not scared at all and they just love it. For me, I call them the little mermaids because at home, they stay very long at the shower and spend their time playing with the water. Too bad because our house is not that big. I was planning to give them a plastic pool so that they could enjoy instead of going at the beach.

Wireless Security System I Wanted To Install

Here in France, one of the things that you’ll notice is that mostly of the establishments don’t have any security guards at all. Majority of the frenchies have big houses and spend their vacation outside the country for weeks and even months and you wouldn’t see anyone guarding the house. Well, it is because majority of them have their own security system like alarm. They’ll just have to enter the code before leaving their property and voila! To have our own security system is something that I’d like us to install here in our apartment. Although it’s safe here but I still prefer to have one especially when we’ll be travelling back in PI. This ademco wireless security system is the one I’m wishing to install here very soon. I don’t know when exactly but before the year ends hopefully.

Let's Talk About Lights


The lighting fixtures we use play a very important rule in anyone’s houses and homes. It is a part of the home accessory we’ve got and lights in general, reflects as to who we are, what we are and what kind of lifestyle do we have. We don’t really need to have that most expensive light you’ll find in the store but choosing the right design and finishing will be something that matters most.

2 Kindest People In The French World (sauf hubby)



These are the 2 people who treated me as their own daughter here in France. Before I came here, they've been so nice and kind to me until now. They treated me as their own (by blood) even if I'm not. A very good relationship with the inlaws is something that I'm wishing to have when married and I am so thankful that this wish really came true. They were the one's who took good care of the vin d'honneur last September and the wedding preparations too last October 2007. Honestly, as a bride for the second time (got married for the first time with hubby in Cebu last 2006), I was supposed to be the sole person responsible in taking good care of everything but what happened was the contrary. It's my inlaws who took good care of everything and they just consulted us, asked us as to what we want and how we'd like our wedding to be. I'm very spoiled by them because they always give me something and to hubby everytime we see them. Friends, meet my french inlaws. Merci beaucoup mes beaux-parents!

Tulips Season


Aren't those tulips really beautiful? It's possible to see it everywhere now here in France and take note, those tulips are available everywhere like at the park, the streets, sidewalks, neighbor's houses and at public places. When I see these tulips especially the one's in pink, it made me wish that it exists as well in Philippines in public places too. It's just very lovely watching these flowers in different colors and it is really a very good decoration. Tulips are for sale in PI. Here, it is still even if it's possible to find it everywhere but the frenchies are very respectful and prefer not to touch anything that's not theirs.

0 Phone Cards Left

Oufff ! I was supposed to give my family a call this afternoon but when I opened my bag, I just realized that I don’t have any prepaid phone cards left. Huhuhu what a big catastrophe! It has been 2 weeks since the last time I called them and today is the right timing for me to do it (for some special reasons). But well, it’s never too late for me to do it. I’ll just have to order one for myself and once I’ll get the codes thru my email, I’ll instantly give my family a long distance call and will be talking to the entire clan.

Prepaid phone cards have been very helpful for me in so many ways. It is something that is always in my wallet and I always keep 2 as the minimum. I rarely use my cellphone in calling my family and friends abroad because it is very expensive. Eversince last year, I managed to save a whole lot of bucks on our monthly telephone bills and it is really a great savings for us. As the life here is expensive, it is really good to find an alternative solution to be able to avail some great savings in one’s pocket. Call me kuripot but I am just being practical. Even if I’ll get 1 euro discount only, I’ll surely take it without any hesitation than nothing right? Everytime I purchase my phone cards, I’m very happy already when the store offers me a 3% cash back bonus. By that, it would allow me to pay them lesser and to talk to my family longer.


The Little Black Dress Test




What Your Little Black Dress Says About You



You are chic, worldly, and charming.

You naturally fascinating and popular. You never feel like pretending to be someone you're not.



Your style is simple, flattering, and always appropriate. You fill your closet with well quality, timeless items.



If you were a shoe, you would be: Open toed heels



Absolutely right! I love open toed heels. I just feel very feminine when I wear it that's why a shoe like that really represents me. I am born to be a very simple girl. I am already confident wearing jeans, a nice tshirt and a nice jacket as well. I am more on a shoe and bags. Those are the accessories where I give importance to. For dresses? Not that much. I am a girl still who spends here entire time infront of the closet thinking as to which outfit to wear.

A Pot That Still Lives


This pot of flowers was the one hubby and I received last New Year at a friend's home. We celebrated our New Year at a friend's house last year in Orsay and she organized a couple's game. Hubby and I won and we took home a mag and this pot. I never thought that these flowers will be growing and will continue to blossom. I don't know why I've got this kind of thinking but watching them now really makes me smile because it is such a real beauty. Sometimes, I forgot to water this pot but these flowers are really brave. I'm so happy that I've got it :-)

Military And Security Gears

BDU Pants have been one of the most important outfits for military personnels and police officers. Some may find this outfit at their favorite store that sells something like this while others may find it at lapolicegear.com. But for me, it is best to buy it at L.A Police Gear because they’ve got the complete things and accessories for security professionals and police officers. From Blackhawk to Galco Holsters to other famous brands, they’ve got it in different styles and colors.


Ovulation Tests


You may call me crazy but I am definitely not once you'll see that picture above. Yes and those are ovulation tests (une test d'ovulation) that I got from my friend. She sent me around 32 sachets of these ovulation tests and I instantly tried one the moment I got it. It has been a year since I arrived here and until now, I am not pregnant yet as in nada in my ovary. Just wanna try this one out to see if it is really that effective especially that my period falls on different dates each month. Until now, it is negative still and I'm hoping that it will be positive soon.

La Fontaine de Trois Graces


This is the statue that you'll find here in the middle of La Place de la Bourse. My father-inlaw took this shot when they were here in Bordeaux. La Place de la Bourse is one of the famous tourist attractions here and it is always a place to see and to visit during the day and night. The building itself is really beautiful especially when you'll see it's reflection in the water. I received a comment from a fellow photographer and he is a bordelais. He said that I must try to take a picture at this place in the evening because it is really beautiful and to have a shot as well of the very famous bridge nearby. Well, I'll be doing that in the next days maybe with my husband.

I Feel Weird At Times

Did you ever have this kind of feeling that everytime you look at yourself at the mirror, you find yourself ugly and fat? I do feel that at times and everytime I am in that situation, I am thinking of purchasing a bottle of diet pills for myself like lipovox, anoretix and fentraphen. I know that having this kind of feeling is very normal for women but I just don’t like it. It makes me feel like I am the ugliest woman in this world and I do feel it when my period is coming. Oufff! It’s tiring being a woman ha.

A Night With The Frenchies



I was out last night together with my husband. We were having a dinner at the resto in Bordeaux Centre together with his colleagues at work. It’s my first time to met them and it was a pleasure for me too to meet them finally. All of them are very kind and are funny. At first, was shy but then later on, managed to ride on in their jokes and funny moments hehehe. All of us were really drunk and I couldn’t remember how many glasses of red wine I took. We stayed at the resto eating, dancing until 1+ in the morning and then moved at the bar nearby to have a drink once again and to dance once again. Ouf! Good thing there were no police last night who’ll be checking the alcohol level or else, hehehe we’ll surely be in great danger. Until now, I am tired and sleepy coz we arrived home at around 3+ in the morning. Anyway, here are some of the shots we took but the shots are not that really good. Try to observe the shots because one guy there really look like Richard Gutierez. This guy is really nice and charming hehehehe

Ohhh C'est Froid De L'Eau


This is one of the shots I took last weekend. I'm not done yet in checking each single picture one by one coz I'm overloaded of the different tasks here. This was in Place de la Bourse, the place where you'll see beautiful tulips of different colors. This place is quite crowdy sometimes but normal because this is one of the most touristic place here in Bordeaux.

When it comes to photography, I'm always fascinated of the different faces and expressions of the people. This kid for example was fun look at when he was playing of the water and was running everywhere. He's cute here but my shot is not that perfect.

Low Cost Car Rental In Israel

Travelling going to Israel very soon and you need a reliable car hire israel company? Carrentalisrael.com will be very perfect for you because they offer very affordable car hire rates and they’ve got many promotions too especially for holidays and special occasions. In Israel, Avis Car Rental company is the most affordable and they’ll surely give you a very good service. You’ll find the latest models of the different cars here according to your preferences and taste and the staffs, themselves, will accommodate you as possible as they could. Making a reservation at carrentalisrael.com is easy and hassle-free because they wouldn’t ask you for credit card to reserve a car for yourself and there’s no cancellation fee at all. So good that I found this company because we’re thinking of travelling in Israel this coming July.

Eating Is A Pleasure


Wanna try and eat this? I tell you, this food is really yummy and tasty. My father-in-law and I both liked it when we tried this one at the resto in Bordeaux Centre last saturday. I forgot how it is called but it is a menu with potatoes, mixed legumes that looked like noodles and very yummy scallops. French really love the best in life and when I say best, they love good things in every single thing whether it's food, clothes, gadgets, shoes and so much more. They give importance to the food because eating is a pleasure for them. Eating without having a glass of red or white wine is really incomplete for them. No wonder why mostly of the people think that frenchies really love luxurious taste.

Interior Design And Photography

I love photography very much and I never get tired flipping and watching the different photo albums I have. It reminds me of the good times I had with my loved one’s in a specific occasion and place. If you’ll be dropping by here one day in my house, you’ll notice how I give importance on the different photos I’ve got and how associated them with home and interior designing. I’m not that good but I’m learning. When I love something, I instantly have it printed, enlarged it, have it framed and placed it here at home for decorations.

Years ago, I never had any idea that my shots will be considered as a personal work of art. I never trusted myself and my performances but when I discovered learntodream, they opened my eyes and taught me that interior design and the photograph goes together very well. I’ve got many wonderful shots and learntodream.com have helped me in making all these shots really magnificent for me to achieve that Wow factor here at home. I tell you, their establishment is one of the best companies I love that offers a very high quality photographic printing service that turned my jobs into stunning images.

Pork Chop Steak A La Francine


I've been missing the pineapples in Philippines because those are really sweet and juicy. I miss the food also when it is marinated with the pineapple juice. The other day, I tried it and used the french pineapple product that I found at the supermarket. It's not that sweet as the one I always used in PI like Dole and Del Monte, but so far, the food came out really tasty. First time for my husband to try something that is marinated with pineapple juice and he loves it. Here's my recipe if you guys are interested:

An Eyeglass For Her

My mom has been requesting me to buy her a new pair of eyeglass. She has one and she has it for many years already. I’ve been browsing the different stores and there are several models that I love very much for her. These cheap eyeglasses that I saw are really perfect for her and I am very sure that she’ll look young with it. The one she has right now is making her look old really and I don’t like it honestly. Being a daughter, of course I’d like to give her something that is of good quality and at the same time, something that goes perfectly to her too.

Excited To See His New Gadget


Can you see how happy my husband is when he got his new camera? See this? He really looked like a little boy opening his gift. Watching him very eager to see his new gadget made me think as to how cute he is. Hehehe Ok too much for me now. I know that I am just inlove but yes. Looking at my husband makes me think and makes me imagine seeing the little version of him running around here at home :-). I just love to think about it these last days.

Anyways, hubby and I have been very interested in photography. He bought his new camera, new lense and other photography accessories. He bought many books as well and spent his time reading it while doing the trial and error in his shots. Me? Jezzz, I am so lazy to read all these theories. Until now, I don't have any idea yet about light exposure and etc. When I want to do something, I always ask him as to which mode is good and this and that. Need to have that energy once again coz I've been so tired of the deadlines I've got these last days.

Fashion World

I am not a big fashionista woman and I am definitely not a fashion victim as well. I love fashion very much but sometimes, I am just scared to try the new trends. I often imagine myself of making my own name someday and to be a part of the fashion world. Being a member of this world is surely amazing because there are many fashion jobs available for you and you’ll also have the chance to meet the famous fashion designers like Gucci, Ralph Lauren and many others. I am a big dreamer and would want to land one of these hottest fashion careers in the hottest fashion fields but will I be qualified? Huh! That’s the big question there and I, myself, couldn’t even say yes to this question. I know that it is possible for me still to achieve this big dream but I need to find and to enroll in one of the best fashion schools in this world. London Fashion School is the only option for me here in Europe as it is the closest. Well, fashionistas, wanna come and join me in?
