Last weekend, I spent couple of hours doing the most dreaded task I wish to accomplish. General cleaning!

I know how hard it is for my wife to maintain a clean house especially having to take care of our daughter on top of all other daily chores she has to do. She can't vacuum our place too because our daughter is scared of the vacuum when it is used.

I am proud of myself for finally doing what I need to do. I cleaned our place and gave away all the little things that we can no longer use anymore (i.e, high chair, car seat and more). Our place looks different after cleaning for over 3 hours (non-stop!).

Now, all I need to do is clean our place in the next few nights after work and our place will be ready for Lulu's birthday party on Friday!

Hail is a form of precipitation that occurs when updrafts in thunderstorms carry raindrops upward into extremely cold areas of the atmosphere where they freeze into ice. Hail is larger than sleet, and forms only in thunderstorms.

Few hours ago, it rained hail in our place. When I heard a different sound outside, I know its's hail. We had a severe weather warning so I know that it's raining hail outside. I excitedly show it to my wife because I think she has not seen one.
Did you know that bearings are very important? The bearing makes it possible for many machines to be running and functioning well. Without bearings, we would be constantly replacing parts that wore out from friction.

Bearings reduce friction and allows any device to spin smoothly. There are wide selection of ball bearings, sleeve bearings, thrust bearings, roller bearings, spherical bearings, mounted bearings and more that are available for specific needs. Each type of bearing has its own interesting uses, including magnetic bearings and giant roller bearings. There are also bearing lubricants that can be used.

Late last year, we decided to change my daughter's bed. We bought her a toddler's bed. The mattress that she used on her crib has the same size with the new toddler's bed so we didn't buy a new mattress anymore. We just used the one she had in her crib. Her mattress is really nice as it is a Sealy mattress, a very well-known brand.

Choosing the right mattress for you and for your kids is easy especially if you know what is your brand of preference. Nowadays, it even gets easier as you can buy mattresses online. Some places even delivers it for free. Shopping online for mattresses is really convenient as you can always shop by brand, by size and by comfort.

This is the first big teddy bear that I bought for Lulu. I bought this December 2006. Now, this teddy bear has become Andrea's playmate. They always have a tea party where bear has to seat on the other end of the table while Andrea is on the other end too while they share a cup of hot tea.

I am glad that it became Andrea's favorite tea partner.

One of the things that my daughter is scared of is the sound of a vacuum cleaner. Whenever I have to vacuum our carpet she has to be inside her bedroom with her doors closed because she can't bear the sounds of vacuum. For this reason, we don't vacuum everyday.

I am thinking of buying a heavy duty vacuum and at the same time a vacuum that is perfect for allergy sufferers. I want something like a Hepa vacuum because we need something that will work better since we don't vacuum everyday and something that will not only provide a clean home but also a healthy home. This type of vacuum is really dependable and very easy to use. So, if you have allergy sufferers at home, this product is perfect for you.
I have read many articles about electronic cigarettes. Many have attested how it is better compared to the real cigarette. They said that it is healthier to use it and using the e-cig means you wont be emitting smoke that will be a health hazard even to second hand smokers. This is really a matter that I need to consider. I really should make a research about the advantages of E-cig, where to buy them, and the cost of smokeless cartridges. I think that using electronic cigarettes will become very popular in the next generation or so.

Have you tried using electronic cigarettes? What's your experience with it? Please let me know....
One of our friends love to smoke branded cigars. He actually has different brands of cigars sitting in their study room. He had mentioned a while back that one of his favorite brand is the hoya de monterrey cigars. I am not a cigar smoker so I really can't tell which of those many brands stand out among the rest.

I have noticed that some of these cigars can really cost a lot of money. I am glad I am not a cigar smoker because with the average cost of a branded cigar, I don't think I can afford it. Those who are cigar aficionados must have a lot of extra money for them to afford to buy a box of those famous cigars.
Death is inevitable. Despite how cautious we are, death comes at a time we expect it the least. Most people are not ready for it, and I am one of those. I mean, if I have a choice, I want to live more years especially that I still have a small daughter. I surely want to see her grow up.

Death is something we have to be prepared even if we don't want to. Part of being prepared is to make sure that you have made your funeral arrangements while you are still able to do it. You don't want to leave all these important details to the family that will be left behind.
My wife has a computer degree from Philippines. I think that back in Philippines, it degree is very common. Although she has a degree, she doesn't think that she can compete with other IT professionals because it has been so many years since she worked on something that is degree-related.

Anyway, when our daughter will be ready to go school, we plan for Lulu to find something that she wants to accomplish. We plan for her to go back to school and get herself a medical degree instead of an it degree. She said that medical field will provide her with better chances of landing a good paying job.

On nights that Lulu doesn't feel like eating, our easiest solution is to buy a subway footlong.

Our usual choice is the Meat Club but we always like it to be Double Meat Club. Topped with tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce, onion, bell pepper and lots of olives and cheese. This is really good. This was what we had for dinner earlier.... too bad the subway outlet that we buy our sandwich runs out of wheat bread so we settled for another kind!
It seems like spring has escaped on our end. Weather feels like summer already. In fact, this week our air conditioner has been working all day all night already. The temperature is already in the 80's. I am sure that with the weather we have now, many families have planned their beach trips already. Of course, we too have plans like that.

I know most women are now gearing to have their sexy bodies back in time for beach parties. Beach parties which means sun, sand and a lot of fun. Obviously, most of these women really want to parade their sexy bodies in their swimwear. For some who find it hard to get their desired curve, I think that OxyElite Pro is worth checking as an aid in their quest for losing weight.
I am always fascinated with natural cure. I mean, I always have a high regard for people who prefers to use herbal medicines or medicinal cures rather than using prescribed drugs. It is seldom that Americans would diligently use herbal medicines over common ailments, I guess because buying over the counter medicines are really easy.

Anyway, I know that some traditional cures really works and I am sure that one can find the best natural acne treatment if they want to. Natural way of curing something I think is really good.

I can Fly!
This was how much fun we had last weekend. See the sky? It was a beautiful day. A perfect day to be outdoors and enjoy the sunshine.

I was proud of myself for getting up and bringing my whole family to the park yesterday. I had a hectic schedule at work last week and worked late but I didn't make it as an excuse to be lazy. Though I wanted so much to just stay at home and rest, I decided to give my daughter a day of fun at the park, after all she has been so sweet and I felt guilty not being home early.

The laughs that I heard from her sliding at the big slides, swinging and walking/running was priceless. I was glad of my decision to let her play outdoor and at the park.

These are the girls in our dresser. Guess who they are?

These are girls that are important in our lives. On the left is a picture of my daughter Mischa when she was just a toddler. On the right is a picture of my Mom. This was taken during her school days 60 something odd years ago.

This is my Nostalgia #44 entry.

I have been working a late shift for this week and this shift is not favorite. I got to get home late and won't be able to see much of my family.

Last night, my wife told me that out of the blue my 3 year old just said "I miss my daddy". Oh, I felt so bad for her. She is not used to this shift and I don't think she understands why I am going home late.

I had to work longer than usual last night (add it from the late shift). But, my daughter won't sleep yet because "I will wait for daddy to come home", as she said. Who can blame me if this shift is not my favorite?

I am ready for this week to get over with and back to my normal schedule. One more day and I will be seeing more of my 3-year old daughter.

This is made by my wife. Very yummy. Moist and so good! My daughter helped her baked this cake and they made it for my birthday!
Did you know that you can prevent ankle injuries by wearing a lace up ankle brace? For athletes and other individuals who have ankle ligament sprain and other chronic instabilities, they can also use this. This ankle brace is designed to support your ankles and is very easy to use as it will easily fit in any shoes. This ankle brace is made up of sturdy canvass thus it will ensure that your ankle is supported at all times.

Having ankle injuries is one of the hardest as it affects your ability to move freely. So, don't make your injuries worsen, use a lace up ankle brace now.
Now that most of the stock market is down, I am really not comfortable in investing. Not that I have a lot of money to invest considering our the soaring high prices of everything. A few of my friends talked me into investing in some gold. They all said that it is a safe investment. Whether it is true or not, I have to spend some time to analyze it.

Should I be interested to invest in gold, I know that I can easily buy gold online as there are many websites that offers this kind of services. There are websites that even sends you a free gold kit for you to study how gold investing works.

As of the moment, I am not yet ready to invest. But when the time comes, I will keep an open mind about buying gold.
Every year, I make sure that I sign up with Yahoo Sports Tournament Pick 'em. I know I am not good at my bracketology since I started playing along but it is fun and who knows I will get lucky and I will win the $1Million prize for correct picks (which of course, I don't think will happen). Perhaps, I will win $10K then ( I guess, I have better chances at this), for the best picks in the bracket.

I have also encourage my wife to join the fun and play tournament pick 'em with me. So for now, we both have selected our picks. I wonder who will do better, will it be me or will it be her? We will find out soon!

For those who doesn't know what I am talking about, Bracketology is the process of predicting the field of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, named as such because it is commonly used to fill in tournament brackets for the postseason.

Just recently, we decided to use green cleaning products at home. You see, we have noticed how much damage we cause to our environment and we try our best to help take good care of mother nature. We try to practice green living although at times we forget about certain things but at least as much as possible we try to.

I believe that if we will not take care of environment, time will come that we can no longer live in this planet that is why it is important for us to do our share in taking care of mother nature.
Our family doctor has moved to a different office now. She is still affiliated with the same group they just moved their office. I actually like their new location. It is closer to where we live and the place has big fountains which Andrea likes to watch while waiting.

The last time I see our doctor which was last month, I noticed that they have more sophisticated gadgets now. Even the waiting area has new chairs and new wall decors. They also use new medical computer carts. I really like their new office now and of course, I like our family doctor.

When the clock strike 12 MN, March 11, Lulu and Andrea brought the cake with candles on it and sang happy birthday. Andrea was so excited that it was Daddy's birthday. After they sang happy birthday, she told me to make a wish and she helped me blow the candle.

They gave me their cards and their gifts. It was very sweet. The gifts inside the bag were from all of them. From Mom and Dan, Lulu and Andrea.

We took family picture first and Andrea didn't complain...

until she decided it is time to dip her finger in the frosting....

I had a great birthday!

Thank you all!
Our economy is getting bad. Oil prices are soaring. The prices of all other basic commodities are increasing. The prices have become absolutely ridiculous. People are really having a hard time to live day by day.

Even myself is not sure about the security of my job. Call me paranoid but I can't afford to lose my job as my family is depending on me and this job. If only, I have a diploma or degree in medical field, I won't have a lot of problems because there are health care job listings everywhere. The demand for a medical job is always high. I guess it is time to look at this option. Perhaps my wife will want to venture in this field. Medical field for me offers more security and stability.
Last night, we attended a birthday party. It was Lotlot's birthday party, she is a close friend of ours. We had fun. Anyway, before she blew her birthday cake, Mike kneeled in front of her and popped the question "Will you marry me?" with an engagement ring in his hand. It was a very touching moment. Every girl in the party were squealing out of excitement.

Anyhow, we have found out that they are getting married soon. As early as now, we are already thinking of buying them a personalized wedding gift.

We are all so happy for Lotlot and Mike. We wish them best!
We really enjoyed watching the movie "Secretariat". This was about the horse who won a triple crown. Secratariat set a lot of records in horse racing. It was really amazing.

While watching the movie, we can't help but notice that a jockey plays a vital role in horse racing. Well, he is the one that rides the horse so his participation is really important. Have you noticed that jockeys wear different clothes for riding? I am sure that a jockey needs a couple of breeches. These breeches give the jockey a comfortable outfit while riding the horse.

I have seen many equestrians who wears designer breeches. I often thought that equestrians exudes a lot of confidence in them that makes them really sexy.

During my birthday last Friday, I was off from work. I spent the day with my family.

We really didn't have big plans for my birthday except to do something with Andrea. We decided to bring her to Chuck E Cheese's.

She really didn't like the place very much but she did play with some of its toys and games there. She liked getting a ticket though! (lol). One of her favorites is playing bowling.

After our bondign at ChuckECheese's we went to an oriental store to buy some asian goodies and fish. Andrea really enjoyed seeing the fish and crabs in the store.
Every now and then, we discuss the what ifs in life. What if something happen to us, who will take care of Andrea? These are topics that as much as we hate to admit it, we need to address with open mind. Thankfully, we have families that we can rely and we are sure that will take good care of Andrea should something inevitable happens to us. I know that my older daughter Mischa will do a great job in raising Andrea. But of course, I hope and pray that we will live long enough to raise Andrea. Because we are really concern about our little daughter's future, we are thinking of increasing our life insurance coverage. We are thinking of insuring ourselves as we know that an additional few hundred thousand coverage will be good for our daughter should something happens to us.
When we will have our own house, my wife and I would like to have a game room / entertainment room. We might also consider putting a home bar on our game room too. We planned on having this type of room because it will be a great place for family bonding. It will also be a great place to entertain our friends. Speaking of entertainment, we also wanted to have pool table. Most of our friends play pool so a pool table will be of great use. I wonder how much would a pool table and pool sticks will cost us. We will surely buy them if the price is right on our budget.
The endless rain that we experienced last weekend made me think of buying me a pair of rain boots. Wearing them will help keep my feet dry. When it rains, it really pours. That's what happened last weekend. It rained for almost 48 hours. The streets are wet and most of the lowland areas were flooded. As much as we hate going out on the rain, we didn't have a choice as we have to do our weekly grocery shopping.

Walking from the parking lot, it made me wish I was wearing a rain boots because my shoes was starting to get wet with the pouring rain. I was parked farther away as most parking spots near the door were already taken. I guess I really have to invest on rain boots as I am sure I can also use them for work!

Today, I am celebrating my birthday.

I am blessed to have a wonderful family and friends. I have plenty of messages in my facebook wall greeting me. I got phone calls and birthday cards too!

This is by far the best birthday I ever had. My little girl is so sweet and keeps on telling me 'happy birthday, daddy'.

Thank you everyone for making my day Special!
Social security has really helped a lot of people. People who deserves to get social security disability should get it. I know that the process is hard as I have seen so many who has to provide all the necessary documentations to prove their eligibility. Few have tried and failed but there were also many who succeeded in claiming these type of benefit.

For me, if you have worked and you became disable, then you have the right to claim what is supposed to be yours. It is just sad that there are people who wants to try to beat the system and declare themselves disable even if they are still able.

Anyhow, there is help available in making sure that you can claim your social security disability benefits. Check it out online. There are plenty of resources for these.
Every year in our work, the HR department sends letter if we are interested in a management position. Sometimes, I get tempted to apply for the said position because I know I have the skills and I know I can handle it. Then again, it also have some disadvantages. I don't want to be uprooted and be assigned to a different place.

I think that management jobs are not really hard to handle as long as you have the zest for it. I have had experience working in HR department and I remember how much I enjoyed it. Maybe in the future when there is an opportunity, I will take it and only when I won't be assigned to a different branch.

This was taken December 2006. This was the first time that we went to Florence Alabama for Lulu to meet my Dad and his wife.

This was the first time that Lulu was able to see the Tennessee River.


Wednesday, March 9, 2011

We are experiencing bad weathers lately. Endless rain and gusty winds are blowing. Some parts of Alabama had tornado. Lightning, thunderstorms and tornadoes are very common in the south. When this type of weather comes, having some plantation shutters installed in your houses can help prevent damages. Strong winds can damage your homes and with a protection like shutters, your valuables inside your homes will be protected.

Besides protection from bad weather, shutters can also add beauty to your homes. So, why not protect your homes with plantation shutters now?
My in-laws in the Philippines will be celebrating their golden wedding anniversary next year and we want to be there to celebrate with them. It has been agreed by everybody that when they will reach their golden anniversary, every child together with their families should go home wherever they may be. It will be a great deal for everyone as it is a milestone for my in-laws to reach 50 years of successful marriage.

We believe that if we can book our flights early, we can get a better deal. We are now looking for some Expedia coupons that can lower our flight costs. The cost of the flight will be the biggest spending of our vacation because it will be 3 of us who needs to buy a ticket. If we can find an Expedia coupon, then we can save a little. Every little saving will be a great help.

For the past vacation that we had, we found some really great deals with Expedia. In fact, one of our friends was able to book her flight and hotel for a couple of hundreds less than what she expected. Now, if you plan on traveling, you should look for Expedia.com coupon code to save on your flight and hotel accommodation. You can also use the coupons to save on vacation packages, car rentals and a lot more.

Are you looking for a new home? If you fancy living in one of the best places in North Carolina, you might want to look at some Outer Banks foreclosures. Buying a foreclosed property may mean you can get it for a lower price. I know some properties that are foreclosed has plenty of problems but if you and your agent will perused the property closely, I am sure you can find some good buys among them.

I think that Outer Banks properties are really worth your money as this place is really beautiful. The weather is beautiful and Outer Banks is a tourist destination area so you will be near places that offers entertainment and there will be a lot of fun things to do in the area.
One of the things that my wife did when I wanted her to handle our finances was to check every bills that we need to pay every month. When she handled our finances she decided to change our auto insurance carrier. She was so shocked how much I paid for the car insurance. She was able to find an insurance carrier that offers cheap auto insurance rates. On top of that, she also availed of the discount offered through my work. All in all she was able to save few hundred dollars for our car insurance.

One of the things that my wife is good at is finding good deals and finding ways to lower our bills. How lucky can a man gets? I know I am very lucky!
(Photo not mine)

A steaming cup of coffee is what I have to have when I wake up. I drink my coffee "black", no sugar nor cream.

I am not a morning person and I need time to "wake up" when I get out of bed and that is the time that I drink my black coffee!
Did you know that if you buy gold as an investment you will have a great chance of big returns? Yes, gold is a good investment especially now that the demand for gold is very high while the supply is very low. I know that it is hard to decide when it comes to investing especially that there are many stock investors who have lost quite an amount of money. There may not be a certainty in our investments but I am sure that gold investing is safe as I know that gold value will forever be high thus investing into gold will be a decision that I will stand by.
Cleaning the bathroom is one of my chores. I have to make sure that it is clean at all times because my little girl loves to take a bath. While cleaning our bathroom, I can't help but wish that we have glass mosaic tiles on them. I think that those kind of tiles are really beautiful. I know for sure that if we will have a house of our own, those kind of tiles is on top of the line for our bathrooms. What about you, what is your idea of a beautiful tiles for your bathroom?
I had my share of glory days. When I was young, I receive different trophies and awards in recognition of my performance in sports. I am very active in sports during my younger days and I loved every minute of it. I sometimes tell my wife about those days, when playing sports was like a highlight of my day. I admit, I miss those days. I wish my wife could have seen me play as I think I was good at it.
This is a very emotional movie. It doesn't have a lot of courtroom dramas but it is more on showing the brother-sister relationship. The story is simply told. I recommend this to every movie fans that likes to watch something of value.

A working mother puts herself through law school in an effort to represent her brother, who has been wrongfully convicted of murder and has exhausted his chances to appeal his conviction through public defenders.
It has been a week now that we bought out HP desktop. I am so glad that I insisted on buying the desktop for my wife because I know it will be better for her.

When we bought the desktop, we were glad that it was on sale. It was $100 off from teh original price. With the specifications that it had, which I really don't understand, Lulu said it is a good buy.

If you decide to buy computers, you might want to shop around and look for discount desktops. Some place offers discounts and believe me, whatever discount you may get, it will surely helps.
Home security means you will have peace of mind knowing that even if you are not there physically, your family is protected against perpetrators. Whenever I am at work, I always worry about the safety of my family that is why I am glad that there is a remote security available. Home security help you manage your house remotely. My family is my most treasured possession that is why their safety is my main priority. I cannot be with them physically for 24 hours a day but at times that I am not there, home security will do the works. So, leave your worries behind and arm your house with home security for your peace of mind.
Fishing is something that my wife and I enjoyed to do. There are a few public lakes that is open for fishing that we can go to. There is also a private pond that we go fishing. The private pond is really big and it is not very far from where my Mom lives. We always enjoy fishing. It is very relaxing and it is a good bonding for us.

The private pond used to be really beautiful. It has some sort of commercial pumps running to ensure that it is clean. These days, it seems like it is not well-maintained already perhaps because the past month's weather was not really good. Hopefully by spring the pond will be back to its old shape.
I gave my wife a break. I let her take a nap. I spend my time bonding with Andrea. We played and just had fun while Lulu was in our bedroom sleeping. I am proud of myself for doing this and I really enjoyed it.

Here we are playing snack time with Bear

Hope you have a great weekend folks!

When our daughter was still little, we invested into buying a good baby carrier because we like bringing her to the mall. We bought an ergo baby carrier and it was very comfortable for her and it gives me ease while carrying her walking around the mall.

This type of baby carrier is really perfect to give to your friends or family. It is also a perfect baby shower gift. A parent who will receive this baby carrier as a gift will surely be thankful. So, if you have a friend or a family who is expecting a baby soon, give them an ergo baby carrier and I am sure they will be truly grateful.
Over the years we have accumulated things of value that we want to preserve. We want to make sure that it will be stored in a storage place made of a metal buildings to ensure that these things will be protected against severe weather. My wife and I decided to store and keep these things safe because we want to share them to our daughter when she is old enough to appreciated these things. I am glad that I found a storage facility that are made of metal buildings that are also affordable. We will be renting one of them to store our valuables that we want our daughter Andrea to have in the near future.
My mom has worked in the pharmacy for over 20 years. I remember her wearing cotton medical scrubs going to work. I guess that was their uniform then. When she decided to retire a couple of years ago, I saw how much scrubs she had accumulated over the years.

If you ask my mom where to buy cheap hospital scrubs, I am sure she can tell you places both online and in store. My mom is a good shopper. She likes buying affordable stuff and she is also not afraid to pay more if she thinks she gets a better quality out of it. I guess that's one of the many things that my mom and my wife share in common.

Anyway, my advise for people who are in medical field and are looking for a place to buy hospital scrubs, you should visit the Blue Sky Scrubs. They have plenty of products that you can choose from especially for spring fashion.

Oh, sorry folks I miss the 42nd entry of Nostalgia. Work was very hectic this week. I hope to be on tract again next week. See yah then!

Last Christmas, my wife and I agreed not to buy a gift for each other. In lieu of exchanging gifts, we decided to buy a new dining furniture for our little kitchen. We did have a dining set but we wanted to upgrade it to something new and something stylish. After we assembled our dining furniture, we were so happy of the result as our kitchen looks like and our new dining furniture looks so good in our kitchen.

If you want to upgrade your dining furniture, you should browse and see the products offered by Cymax Stores. Cymax Stores is one of the fastest growing e-tailers with more than 100 specialty online store. They offer the largest selections of products on the web.

Everybody needs to exercise as it will help keep us fit and healthy. I do need to exercise. I also encourage my wife to exercise too, to keep her body fit and to stay healthy. Health is important for us to discuss because we have a daughter that can't afford to lose a parent at her young age.

I decided to buy one of those computerized stamina bikes that we can use for our exercise. This type of indoor exercise bike doesn't require a lot of space so, it is perfect for us. Perhaps when we own an exercise machine, we will be motivated to spend some of our vacant time to exercise. We really need to focus on our exercise goals.

What's your favorite grill? Is it electric grill, gas grill or charcoal grill? For me, I like a propane gas grill. It is convenient for me. I can buy propane anywhere too.

The size, shape and style of any furniture that you are going to furnish in your living room will depend on the size of your living room.

Sectionals are made from separate pieces and you can organize them in such a way that it will tailor to the shape of your room.

I know that sectional sofa is a big investment. To protect it from stains and tears, you can always buy a slipcover for it.

Last weekend, we planned on eating at KFC but there was a mess when we get there. People were waiting for their orders, some orders were messed up and somebody wants to see the manager to complain. It was too much for us, so we just left KFC and decided to go to Arby's.

Lulu ordered a fish sandwich combo for her.

I ordered Superior Roast Beef
Andrea had Vanilla MilkshakeAll of us ate french fries.
I love winter but I also welcome spring. After couple of months of not being able to do many outdoor activities with my daughter, we are all happy that the weather has gotten nice. A nice weather means we can enjoy the outdoors and we can spend more time outside. Now that weather is nice, it allows us to hang out in our back porch. We just put a new plastic patio furniture in our back porch and we have already enjoyed being there for the last two weekends. We love our bonding time there. We play and grill at our back porch. It has become our weekend family bonding time.
We are planning to refurnish our living room. We don't have a lot of budget to work with but I am sure that we can find some sofa sets that are affordable. With the limited space that we have in our living room, I am open to the idea of having a loveseat instead of a standard sofa.

We rarely get visitors in our place so, it is just my wife and my daughter who will always be using our living room. We really don't need to buy the most expensive sofa. I just need to shop around for prices so that I can compare each of them. I hope I can find the best deal because I think that changing our existing sofa set, will enhance the look of our living room.

Having a child is for me a privilege that I enjoyed so much. At my age, I am blessed to experience fatherhood, the second time around. I admit, I am enjoying my role as a father and rearing one of the sweetest daughter a father could ever imagine. Now that I am older, I have realized how time flies so fast that is why I am trying my best to spend as much time as possible with my daughter.

It seems like it was only yesterday when our daughter was in a jogger stroller enjoying our walks in the park. Now, she is already three years old and wants to do things independently especially if we are in a playground or park.

For all the new parents out there, I advise you to spend as much time as possible with your kids, bring them to the park and spend quality time with them.
This is not originally mine. I just received it through my email. A friend of mine shared this to me and I just decided to post it here.

Here it is....

Each Friday night after work, Bubba would fire
up his outdoor grill and cook a venison steak. But, all
of Bubba's neighbors were Catholic....And since it was
Lent, they were forbidden from eating meat on Friday.

The delicious aroma from the grilled venison steaks was
causing such a problem for the Catholic faithful that
they finally talked to their priest.

The Priest came to visit Bubba, and suggested that he
become a Catholic. After several classes and much
study, Bubba attended Mass.....and as the priest
sprinkled holy water over him, he said, "You were born
a Baptist, and raised a Baptist, but now you are a Catholic."

Bubba's neighbors were relieved, until Friday night arrived, and the wonderful
aroma of grilled venison filled the neighborhood.

The Priest was called immediately by the neighbors,
and, as he rushed into Bubba's yard, clutching a rosary
and prepared to scold him, he stopped and watched in

There stood Bubba, clutching a small bottle of holy
water which he carefully sprinkled over the grilling
meat and chanted: "You wuz born a deer, you wuz raised
a deer, but now you is a catfish."
During our last international trip, we were glad that we brought with us, our daughter's stroller. It really helped her specially during airport transfers. There was three airport layovers during our trip and transferring from one gate to another was such a hassle. Thanks to the convenience of strollers, our daughter didn't experience much discomfort. Strollers help make a baby comfortable during a trip. I am glad that airline personnel gave importance and priority to parents with younger kids. They provided special places to store your strollers and when the airplane landed in the airport the stroller will be waiting for you in the airport hallway. With the use of strollers, traveling with a child becomes easier.
Ever heard of a Tysan Project? The Taysan Project is an advanced copper-gold porphyry deposit. This project can be found in Batangas, an island of Luzon (about 100km from Manila) Philippines. The Taysan Project comprises of 11,254 hectares and it is believed to have a large copper-gold porphyry deposit. A mining company in Canada is leading a mining exploration in Batangas, Philippines. The company focuses on developing the Taysan Copper-Gold Porphyry Project.

So far, majority of the work is focused on drilling and assessment of the Taysan Deposit. It has also been found out that there is a potential of finding high grade copper concentrate with gold, silver, magnetite and other by-products.

I think that the mining explorations in the Philippines will help its economic growth.
I have been to Philippines a couple of times and I love the place. It is such a beautiful country. I have no doubt that the place is rich of natural resources.

Speaking of natural resources, I have heard about gold explorations in the Philippines that are being done by foreign mining companies. One of the most popular mining exploration is the Taysan Project. The Taysan Project has a large copper-gold porphyry deposit and this project is located in the province of Batangas, Philippines. The project is not all about gold exploration, it includes big potential of discovering high grade copper concentrate with gold, silver, magnetite and other by-products. I am really curious about this Taysan Project. I hope that it will result into a positive gold exploration.
