Manila Ocean Park


Before hubby and I flew to Holland, we explore first some beautiful spots in Manila. One spots that we visited was the Manila Ocean Park. This was our second time to be there. Our first visit was a few years ago and some area in the Ocean Park was not totally furnish yet. In those times the only spots that we watch was the Oceanium area, it's a big aquarium with lots of fish inside and the rainforest area. Our second visit was this year and wow, the Ocean park change a lot. Many additional stuff to see and it's more interesting to visit. The oceanium was still there, but they add jelly dancing, musical fountain show (water organ), marine life show and can even do swimming. I enjoy most the musical fountain show because it's amazing. The lights were very attractive and the water was very nice to see. Too bad I can’t take a nice picture with some lights on it because it’s dark. Well, hubby took a video, so I can watch it again and again. .

A present that she got

Last Christmas, my sister got a nice Velo binding from her husband. She was very happy to have this thing because she wanted to have this already before. She has many papers/documents/files that she wants to put it altogether and now she can do it by herself. With this useful thing, she can start a simple business also by accepting some documents/files from other people and put them altogether. Isn't that a good idea? She has a photo copier already, so this is something additional for the service she offered *wink*.

Christmas Greetings!

Haagse bos (forest) during winter time

A week ago my in-laws and I visited the forest that was located in Den Haag. This forest is called Haagse bos. It was snowing hard on that week so we just decided to visit the forest to see how it looks during winter time. I was totally surprised when I saw that everything turns all white. All the branches of the tress was all filled with white snow. And the ground was all covered with thick snow. In fact, when I walked, then I see that my boots sink. Before, I was just watching a picture of a nature that all covered with snow and now I see it in real and even can enjoy with it. I had a wonderful time at the forest with all the snow.

Christmas light at Den Haag City Center


These were the Christmas lights that your can see at the city center of Den Haag. Some lights has different color, but this one I find it so nice. When evening comes, then it feels so nice to walk around in the city with all the lights that hang. Hubby and I enjoy walking at the city center and enjoying all the lights that we see. Well, you don't see lights only, but you can also see a big Christmas tree at the Passage. When you enter at the Passage building, in the middle there is a big Christmas tree that stand. Other area in the city center has some decorations too and it's so lovely.

Anyway, just few days to go and it's Christmas time. Still many parts of the street has many snow, so probably we will have a white Christmas this time. Well, I really wish for that *wink*.

Remembering the past time

When Christmas season comes, there's something that I always remember during my childhood days. Every Christmas my family and I will always join the Christmas party of my father at his work. We got some presents from his bosses, just simple stuff, but it's a lot of fun already for us because it was heartily given. Of course the employees got presents also from the company they work and mostly my papa came home with Organic Fruit Baskets. Inside the basket were different kinds of fruits. Therefore, everyone at home can select which fruit we like. I really likes it when my papa brought some fruits that are still fresh.Fresh fruits are more delicious to eat such as apples, it's so crispy when you eat it.

Aside for some fruits, he also got some surprise things that were very useful at home. A few years after, the Christmas party at my father's work change when the company was owned by one family. It used to be a corporation company that was owned by all the members of the family, but it changed now.

Car Insurance

Last weekend, my sister sends me and SMS informing that our cousins visited in Cagayan de Oro. I wasn't there to entertain them because I'm here in NL. Therefore, we just did a video chat here in yahoo messenger. The server works pretty good, so we don't encounter bad connection during the conversation. Since we don't see each other for long, so we update each other's life. She visited the city because she wants to ask my father if he knows a cheap car insurance company that offers good service to their customers. They have a car insurance already, but they want to switch into an affordable car insurance. Well, my father wasn't home yet, so hopefully my papa can help them.

Toilet that I like

Last week I accompanied my parents-in-law at the hardware store because they were looking for a new sink. We went to many stores because they cannot find the one that they like most. While there were busy searching for a nice sink, I was also busy looking around, watching some stuff. Until I reach to the area where I saw many kinds of toilets. Then, I start looking already which toilet I like to have when my husband I move to our own house. At least now I have some things that I like to have in our future house.

Acne cream

When my niece starts to reach in her teen's life, she started to have some acne. She keeps complaining about her acne problem because she feels shy for it. She used to have a smooth and soft face in her younger age and suddenly when she reaches 14, then she started to have this acne. She tries some facial soap, hoping that it helps for her problem, but nothing happen. She asked me that if its possible I can buy a nice acne cream for her . Well, as my gift to her, so probably I get that special cream for her to make her smile again.

Contemporary coffee table

In our shopping yesterday at the malls, hubby and I saw a modern contemporary coffee table. We both fascinated the uniqueness of the style. In fact, there were also other people who likes it, it caught some attention because of the way it looks. The table looks fancy and elegant. For sure when we have this coffee table in our future house, then it adds beauty to the living room. I hope when time comes that we live on our own, I can still find a nice coffee table as this.

Skeleton key

My brother came home today with a sad face because he lost his key again. It's a key for his cabinet and now he has problem on how he can open his cabinet. He has a spare key, but it was broken, so that's useless. He is planning to look for a lock and key as a replacement for the old one that he has. I suggested to him to buy a lock with a skeleton key, with that key, it's durable enough and unique style. I just hope that he doesn't get lost the key anymore.

Mobile shopping for my bro

Last weekend, hubby and I were doing a mobile shopping here in Den Haag, NL. We went through some store that sells some mobiles, going in and out in mobile store. However, it makes us confuse which mobile we like to purchase for my younger brother. There are many different kinds of mobile brand and it confused us. Hubby and I cannot decide which mobile we give as present for my younger brother. So we went home without any mobile that we bought. And in that night, I saw on TV an HTC mobile advertisement, I was fascinated with the mobile features and directly I look through the net. It's a good mobile and it's a friendly user. Upon reading the htc desire reviews, many people gave a positive feedback about the mobile. So I guess I know now which brand I would choose for my brother's new mobile.

Jewelry making tolls


Jewelry making is one thing that I enjoy to do during my free time. In fact, I made some of my jewelry collections and mostly of them were made of 10 karat golden wire and Swarovski beads. Some of my friends who likes the jewelry that I made, they order that for me. Additional income for me when someone bought it. Now that I'm here in the Netherlands, I miss to bring with me my tools in making a jewelry. Now, I'm asking for my husband if he can look for me a new beading tools that I can use while I'm here in the Netherlands. I some ideas of jewelry design, but I can't start it because I don't have all the equipment that I need in jewelry making. So hopefully before Christmas comes, I can start making a new jewelry.

Den Haag City Center snow time


What a tiring day today, but it's all worth it. I'm tired not just because I'm busy for my job, but I'm tired playing with the snow (LOL). Hubby and I together with my bro-in-law went out today to do some window shopping at the city center. Everything turns white on the street because of the snow that keeps falling down. It's not winter time yet, but it looks like winter already because of the weather we have right now. I wonder when winter comes, probably it's getting colder and colder. Fresh snow is okay to walk, but when it starts to melt then it's so slippery. That's why I'm so careful when I walk outside, I'm afraid that I get slide on the street. Temporarily I wear my sneakers while I cannot find a winter boots that I like. My normal boots is not so comfortable to walk because they are slippery.

Micrometer

My uncle was upset yesterday when he cannot find his digital micrometers. He was doing something and he needs that device to measure some distance. I understand what he felt because sometimes it happened also to me that when time comes that we need it, then it hard to find. Luckily, he find some other ways to figure it out. However, he hopes that his device is not gone that he just misplaced it somewhere in the house.

Bunch of flowers for her bday

Few days to go then it's my mother's birthday. I have no idea what to give on her upcoming birthday. And if I buy something here in NL, then for sure it will be delivered late. Sending from Netherlands to Philippines mostly takes about three to four weeks. And my mother's birthday is already this coming Saturday. Upon browsing through the net on what nice birthday presents to give to your loving mom, I come up with an idea on sending some fresh flowers. Sending flowers online cheaply is just a simple presents for my mother, but I'm pretty sure that she would love it. Besides, giving a present to someone does not count on the amount, but the value. And I know my mother adore flowers, so this is just a perfect presents for her birthday.

Weight problem

Lots of people who have some weight problem have this kind of question, how to lose weight fast? Although I never experience this kind of problem, but through some friends, I feel the burden they had in their life. They all want to gain normal body weight and not overweight or so.

Nowadays, there are many weight loss supplements that we can buy in the market, but we cannot guarantee that all of those would work hundred percent. In choosing a weight loss supplement, we should read the reviews from some other people who tested it already and the specification of the supplement. Don't just buy because it's cheap for your budget, but buy it when you think it would help to solve your problem.

Camiguin adventure 2010


"The more the merrier," that's what the saying is. Most of the time its hubby and I do some exploration in some beautiful spots in the Philippines. However, his visit last October did some changes. We both find it a bit boring that just always us who explore together, so in that time we are more on family bonding. We brought my sister, bro, nephew and my two nieces together with us. And our first exploration was started in Camiguin. One of the nicest island to visit, an island that you consider as a paradise. An island that is abundant of beautiful spots. For me and hubby, it's already our second time to be there while the rest of the family it's all their first time. They got all excited when we reach the island. Many questions that I need to answer. They have never been into an island like Camiguin and so they got all curious about the place. We all grow up in a city, so they keep asking the difference of the island and the city that we grow up.

Anyway, we visited the well-known tourist spots on Camiguin island, such as Katibawasan falls, cold and hot spring, sunken cemetery, Guiob church ruins and volcano watching. We never walked into the old volcano because hubby and I did it before. We both know how tired it was and time-consuming for our day out, so we skip that part. And again, I miss going to the while island due to incident that happened. Although the white island can be view also from the resort that we stayed, but it's nicer to walk and enjoyed the white sand. So hopefully on our next visit someday, I make sure that we can visit that white sand already.
