Our cruise ship plan

When I was a kid, I'm already dreaming that someday I can take a cruise ship. And since I never got a chance to travel with that, then I keep wondering how it goes inside, how fun it is to be there and what would it feel if you're in the ship for few days. I only see those cruise ship on some movies and I was fascinated. I imagine myself that I was there and enjoying the beautiful place that we visit or pass by. However, being there is much more amazing than just our own imagination.

Seagull lighting

Our light in the living is getting old already, so I was thinking that I guess it's time to replace for a brand new light. I discuss it to my husband and luckily he agreed with me. Hubby and I sometimes have different likes in some other things, so it's so normal for us that it takes long that we buy a brand new thing because we keep discussing which one we like most. Now that we plan to buy a living room light, I think ahead already that for sure it takes months that we can have it. So what I did for now is just surfing and gathering some information about some nice light. I save some pictures to show it to hubby and guess what, one light that caught our attention and it's the Seagull lighting. We find simple, but unique in style. So it's just a perfect light that we can replace to the old one that we have.

It's TGIS again!

It's TGIS again today, which means "Thank God Its Friday". I like it when it's Friday because the next day it's weekend. Then, it means that hubby has his day free for two days and we can spend some time together, bonding each other or going to some places that we like. But Friday is also my cleaning day, so today I'm busy cleaning some stuff that it's hidden for few months. Guess what I found, a nice wedding invitation card, whewww... it's my personalized card that I made during our wedding day. And another thing I saw was the thank you cards, wow! I don't remember that I still have those. A nice card to give to someone who attend my wedding day, a simple way to show my appreciation for their presents.

Shoe mug

MellowYellowBadge

It was 2007 that I've been to Germany. Hubby and I together with my parents-in-law visited the Christmas market located in Germany. I guess it takes us 2 hours drive to reach the place, therefore it's a long travel, but it's worth it. We bought a warm chocolate milk because in that time it was so cold, we want to have some warm drink in our body. And we were all fascinated with the glass they used to serve their chocolate milk, it's in a shoe mug with some text on it. We find it so cute and luckily its part of the payment. I still have this shoe mug because I find it so cute, so I keep them as my souvenir from the Christmas market in Germany.

Old Car museum

Hubby adore old cars, in fact, he collects old miniature cars from 1920-1950. And today we visited the old car museum called Louwman museum located in Wassenaer, NL. My bro-in-law accompany us too because I know he also likes old car. So I guess it's men's thing *wink*. The museum that we visited today just open last year. It used to be located at Rraamsdonkveer and it took us two hours to reach the place. Luckily the new location is not so far from home, so the men in the family were very happy because they can easily visit the museum any time they want.

Anyway, the museum was great and it's amazing that to see those old cars that people used to drive before. Some old cars from 1800 or so drive 30kmph, pheew.. I can imagine how slow it was, but in that time people were satisfied with it. Until many years came, people still keep inventing and developing the cars. Just amazing that some old cars look very stylish, which is very rare to see in this time.

Appetite suppressants

We have some sayings that instead giving a negative comments, we do it in a positive way such as "you are too healthy". It's a positive way to say instead of saying you are too fat. Some people get offended when they heard that, but some accept it with all their heart because they know inside that they are really fat. Just like a friend of mine, either she heard she is fat or too healthy, it doesn't bother her much. But she keeps hoping that someday she loses some weight. She knows she eats a lot and she cannot control it especially if she likes the food. And just recently, she tried this appetite suppressants, a substance which reduces the desire to eat. So I hope she can reach her goal to loss some weight.

Bonding time via online

Not many things to do today because all day it's raining here. So I've decided to stay home and chat some of my friends through messenger. It's good to see and talk to them even were across a thousand miles from each other. We did some conference because we were about five people and it was so much fun. It's like we rebuild our bonding together way back high school days. The difference was, we did it through online. Talking about the past and the present things that happened in our life. And of course we notice each other our physical appearance. Everyone changed because we get matured at this time, but two of my classmates gain some weight. It bothered them so much because they keep trying to lose some weight, but can't control their eating habit. So I look through the net some stuff that could help them. Upon exploring through the net I came across this l-carnitine fumarate. I find it very interesting because this supplement is not just for fat loss, but it could also help in the following areas such as Lowering Cholesterol, Improves Heart Rate, Decreases fatigue, Could improve fertility and Improved sexual health.

Acne

Acne is a common human skin disease and it occurs most commonly during adolescence, and often continues into adulthood. Many people have trouble on how to solve their acne problem. Some blemish, but some remains. It's annoying when you have some acne and it's even more worse it you have a lot of it. Luckily there are many acne products now that we can purchase in the market. Through using these products, it helps to blemish your acne problems.

Watching our old pictures

Hubby and I went to bed late last night because we keep watching our old pictures that we had. We check some places that we visited already and remembering those funny incidents that happened. It's so nice that sometimes you spend some time to look back the past things that you have done. We have so many pictures that we save in the hard disk, so hubby and I cannot finish it. But before we close the program, one folder caught my attention. I wonder that the preview shows some fighting outfit. When I open the folder, it's a picture compilation of our visit at the Archeon museum here in NL. I took many pictures at the presentation about the gladiator fight. I notice that most of them wear headgear for fighting protection. Although they fight for the show, but we don't know what might happen, so to secure everyone, they wear that thing.

Our Leiden exploration


Last Saturday, hubby and I went to Leiden. The Leiden is a city and municipality in the Dutch province of South Holland. Since it's weekend, hubby decided that we took train in going there, then we don't need to go to the parking area if we used our car. Aside from that, it's also crowded when we're back home and for sure it hard to find a park space at the back of the house. Anyway our exploration was fun. We did some shopping at the Centrum of Leiden and visited the National Museum of Antiquities. It's my third time to be in this museum, but still I enjoyed being there. I like to watch those antiques from different cultures such as Egpytian, Greeks and Romans. The part that I like most is the mummies, Egyptian writings, pyramid and many more. I just like to know more about Egyptian history and cultures. I find it very interesting, so probably that's the reason that I never tired keep going in that museum because of my interest *wink*.

Bathroom faucet

When hubby and I visited in one of the hardware stores here in the city. It caught my attention a lovely bathroom faucet. I know that my family in the Philippines are looking for a replacement of our old faucet, but my father had a hard time in searching for a nice replacement. So temporarily they used the old one. And before hubby and I flew to Holland, my father asked some favor if we can buy here a nice faucet. So I guess I found the one that my father likes and before I fly back to the Philippines, I make sure that I can purchase this item as my simple present to my father.

Djarum


Few weeks to go and I'm going home again. I'm sure my family expect again some present during my arrival in the Philippines, but sorry not this time. This is my seventh travel to Holland and every time I go home, I bring some presents for my family. I carry it all the way the heavy stuff just to be sure that I have something to give to them. Sometimes I travel to Holland twice a year, so twice a year I bring presents. At this time, I feel I'm tired of it. I can give them something, but not that I carry some heavy stuff. I decided to give them something simple. I'm thinking for my father, I guess it's a nice present the djarum little cigar. He never tried to use this, so this is something new for him. Hope he likes it.

Hand dyers

Washing my hand before I eat or cook is my way to maintain cleanliness. I feel it's hygienic every time I do that. Either I eat at home or at the restaurant or food chain, then I never forget to wash my hand first. So sometimes I go to the bathroom first just to wash my hand and it's so handy for me because I know when I'm done washing there's a hand dryers that dry up my hand. Mostly these dryers are available in some malls, restaurant or food chain. Anyway, you can dry up your hands using towels or tissue too, but if this thing is available, then I prefer that one, *wink*.

I adore shoes a lot

Last Christmas I got a nice present from my mother-in-law and I really like it a lot. Of course hubby and my in-laws know that I adore shoes a lot. So the present that I've got last Christmas was a pair of shoes. I was so happy because it's the shoes that I keep watching in the mall. I keep planning to buy it some other time, but my mother-in-law bought it for me. I was surprised at the same time so happy because I received something that I like to have. Although I have many pair of shoes already, but seems I'm not satisfied it yet. Sometimes hubby complain that I have so many shoes already, but still he cannot stop me in buying another pair of shoes because I like to have it. I collect shoes. And just recently I came across an interesting site that sells elegant shoes womens. And guess what, I saw shoes again that I like. Well, I need to save first to buy that or else hubby complain again that I have another pair of shoes, LOL. Last December I bought three pairs of shoes already, plus a shoe present that I got from my mother-in-law.
