As you all know we plan to come home to Philippines for a vacation early next year in time for my in-law's 50th wedding anniversary. There will be a formal renewal of vows and the event will be attended by everybody in the family. The girls will wear gowns and the guys will wear suit and tie. Because it will be an event to remember, we all need to wear our best. My wife told me that she wants to buy me a steve madden shoes for me to wear during that event. Of course, I know she wants me to look my best too.

Well, whatever she decides for me to wear, that will be what I will be be wearing. She is my personal stylist anyhow (lol).

I seldom see my eldest daughter Mischa as she lives far from me. So, every time that she visits us I always make sure that we bond together.

I wish we live close by so that we can see each other more often.

Thanks for the visit doodle. We had a great time and it was great seeing you again. Love you lot.
I was surprised how many shirts I've got now. I haven't noticed that my wife bought me different brands of clothing already. Ever since I got married, I don't shop anymore. Whatever I got is my wife's choice. She knows more about clothing style anyhow that is why I just let her do the shopping for me. Some of the things I got are from brands I don't have idea about. I noticed that I have a couple of coogi clothing in my drawer so I asked my wife where did she ever learn to shop for different brands. Well, knowing my wife I am sure she found some of these in the internet.

How's your father's day weekend everyone? I had a great one.

Saturday we attended a friend's wedding which was really beautiful. We didn't go to the reception, instead we went out to eat for our pre-father's day dinner.

We dined out at Black Jack Grill. The food was really great. After we dined out, I spent some time outside playing with my little girl.



Yesterday, we ate dinner with Mom and Dan and we let Andrea swim for few hours.

The week went by so quick. My father's day was simple but fun as I spent it with family.

We visited my daughter's pediatric dentist earlier this week for her teeth cleaning and check up. We really like this dental office and we are satisfied with their services so far.


The dental office is located at downtown Birmingham. They have a very nice waiting area. They got toys for the kids while waiting.


The dentists and staffs are all very nice and very gentle to the kids. I am proud that Andrea was being brave while the dentist is cleaning her teeth.

My daughter had undergone two knee surgeries already. I felt so sorry for her as she is still to young to experience such. Her knees are giving her discomfort and I didn't expect her to undergo such pain because she is a young 23 year old. It is not very common for youngsters to experience this kind of pain.

She has been wearing don joy knee braces for many years now. After she undergone surgery which she said has helped a little bit, she is now into her therapy. Part of her therapy is for her to wear knee braces for support.

I can't imagine what my daughter has to go through. I know she is really brave in facing those two surgeries. I wish so bad that she lives near with me that way if she needed help I can be there right away to help her.
When it comes to buying new gadgets like phone, cameras, tvs, computers and such, I always leave the decision to my wife as she knows more about it than myself. I asked her what she can say about canon slr cameras because I heard a lot of my associates about buying this type of slr cameras. She showed me the prices of slr cameras and its accessories and I was shock that they are expensive. I guess I am lucky because my wife told me that she doesn't fancy the slr cameras and she prefers to use the sleek point and shoot ones. With the price difference of these cameras, I am really glad that she prefers the cheaper ones.

As you all know we have been fishing almost all weekends now. We really didn't know when did Lulu got the poison ivy. We go to the same place and last week we just noticed that she got a lot and is spreading on her back and arms and shoulders.

At first we thought that it was just sun burns as she always go fishing wearing spaghetti strap blouses and shorts. Then when it started itching and spreading we thought that we needed to buy over the counter cream for poison ivy. It didn't get any better thus yesterday she went to see the doctor. It was poison ivy indeed and she was given a steroid shot for it. Hopefully she will feel better with her itching.

Now we are faced in a dilemma... should we fish again on our fishing spot or not?

I was never interested into any sort of computer language. I learned to surf the internet and basic stuff and I was content with it. Things have changed when I became a blogger. My internet horizons had widened. I learned some basic codes and doing some basic designing in my blog. I use the blogger platform in my blog and I am so glad because it is very user friendly. It is perfect for somebody like me who is not very knowledgeable about creating a website and such. I have actually ventured into different blogging platform but specifically word press but I have a hard time understanding its ways. I did learn little by little but not enough for me to be comfortable with it.

I have been blogging for over two years yet I have still to master blog codes. When I have difficulty on coding my blogs I always check PHP Forums as this place is a good resource in coding your blogs. It is where I learned how to put watermark on my images when I put images on my blog. The PHP Community is a place where you can browse for topics that you want to learn and you can also create a new topic where members can post replies.

I am very fortunate that I haven't meet a car accident for the last 20 something years. I can proudly say that I am a safe driver. My first and last accident was when I was very young driving my motorcycle.

Accidents do happen in the road even if it is not your fault. Some accidents can't be avoided and when you happen to be engaged in some sort of accident it is better to hire an accident lawyer to make sure that you will be represented right. In a busy place like New York, I bet there are more accidents that can happen there that is why you can always find a good Brooklyn Accident Attorney very easily.
I am well aware how dehydration can affect us thus I am sharing with you the tips that I have found at medicinenet.com.

Tip #1
Plan ahead and take extra water to all outdoor events where increased sweating, activity, and heat stress will increase fluid loss.

Tip #2
Check weather forecasts for high heat index days. When temperatures are high, avoid exercise, outdoor exposure, and plan events that must occur outside during times of the day when temperatures are lower.

Tip #3
The young and elderly are most at risk of dehydration. Ensure that older people, infants, and children have adequate drinking water or fluids available and assist them as necessary.

Tip #4
Avoid alcohol consumption, especially when it is very hot, because alcohol increases water loss and impairs your ability to recognize early signs associated with dehydration.

Tip #5
Wear light-colored and loose-fitting clothing if you must be outdoors when it is hot outside. Drink plenty of water and carry a personal fan or mister to cool yourself.

Tip #6
Break up your exposure to hot temperatures. Find air-conditioned or shady areas and allow yourself to cool between exposures.

Tip #7
Know the signs and symptoms of heat cramps, heat rash, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke. Preventing dehydration is one step to avoid these conditions.

Getting a credit card is simple they say but maintaining a good credit score is considered a wise investment. Having a good credit score means that you are a responsible credit card holder and that you pay your dues on time. It also means savings for you and lower interest rates on your credit cards and loans. It’s all about how you actually use your credit to keep a good credit score and how you use it reflects your spending habits.

But sometimes, with all the tempting sales and deals around, and the rocketing prices of basic commodities and all, we tend to use our credit card for purchases. It is but wise to keep our credit card balances at or below your limit. Manage your debt as well; don’t go overboard by spending way too much your budget. If you think you can’t afford to buy another gadget or appliance, then don’t purchase using your credit card. If it can wait, then let it wait until you have saved enough amount of money.

You can always check online for a free credit score opportunity so that you can manage your debts and balances or your credit report and know where you are.

Yesterday was another hot day. I know my girls are bored at home but they really don't want to go out and play because of the weather. Thankfully, one of our friends call my wife for a shopping trip to the mall. It was a great opportunity for my girls to get out and not get so hot yet they still can enjoy.

They went to the mall before I left for work. They called me that they are having fun and they had a great time at the playground. The kids enjoyed playing at the little playground where there are animal statues that they can climb on.

After they played they bought the kids some ice cream to cool off and then they went shopping. Being girls, my wife and her friends can shop. They can peruse all the sections of the mall for good buys and clearance items.

When I came home last night, my wife showed me the 2 pair of shoes that she got for our daughter, some shirts of different brands and a poloshirt. I noticed that she didn't buy for herself though. She told me that she didn't find anything that she wanted. I also asked if our friend bought a lot in the mall. She then told me that our friend was not able to buy the things she wanted to buy. She purposely went to the mall to buy some nursing scrubs for her daughter but unfortunately the scrub sets that were sold were just too expensive and they don't have the quality that would match the price. I casually said to my wife that she should just shop online and should check http://www.blueskyscrubs.com/categories/Scrubs/Scrubs-for-Women/. I know that the last time we bought scrubs we got a good deal at that website.

When I started blogging, I didn't have any idea what I was up to. I never thought that there are so many things that you need to be familiar with in terms of blogging. If you want to monetize your blog you have to be familiar with SEO, HTML and a lot more. I started reading the Webmaster Forum and I managed to learn little by little. This forum has professionals that knows very well about SEO and other ways to promote your website. One of my favorite threads in this forum is the Content Writing and Articles where everything is discussed from writing articles to tips and other article services. I am in my 3rd year of blogging yet, I still have a lot to learn.
