No Stress or Fuss Party


This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Club House. All opinions are 100% mine.

We celebrated our Christmas get together with our friends last Saturday. It was held in my home. For a stress free preparation especially with food, we ordered it and catered everything. The food comes with every sauce and gravy that goes with it. It is a stress free preparation. All i did is cook rice, clean the house and buy some grocery for our drinks and utensils. Other than that, everything were ordered and delivered.

It is a perfect time to discover a great way to make gravy. My caterer forgot to include gravy sauce for our roast pork. We call it lechon kawali. Preparing gravy for the Christmas meal is as easy as using a Club House Gravy mix, adding flavor to the roast pork.

You can easily find out how easy it is to make your own gravy by watching the gravy tips video

Also you can be updated with new flavor and offers by newsletter sign-up and contest entry

Our Christmas party turned out to be so much fun. We had more that enough food and drinks.
I am going for another party on Christmas day with my hubby's family. I will definitely
bring a pack just in case they don't have any gravy. And i will share the fuss
free way to make your own gravy.

I am wishing y'all a Happy Holidays. Don't eat too much!

Mommy Moments #3: Yummy

mommy momentsWow, i lost track of days. I never thought it's that time again. Mommy Moments #3 edition for me. The theme is about kids favorite food or anything yummy. Denise is a very good eater. She was even better when she was a baby. But lately, she's hard to feed. She's getting picky with food. She loves rice, soup, noodles, french fries, chicken fingers and hotdogs. She doesn't eat any fruit or veggies unless i put it together with the rest of the meal. She's trying to love banana lately coz she sees me eating it more often. So, gets a bite here and there...

A few of our dine out moments.

The Fast and the Furious


This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Charter. All opinions are 100% mine.

Being dependent in this online world, i always seek for high speed internet. A more reliable one and the one that won't ever let me down, charter ultra fast 60 service is the answer to this quest. At this speed i can completely multi -task in ways no one has done. This speed will enable me to use the internet in all new ways gaming, movies, and sending and receiving with mega files and much more at a high speed.

As a stay at home mom, i don't have much time to watch movies or TV. I basically rely online. I feel like when i am offline, my life is meaningless. I admit, i stay on the internet almost all day. For work, i really need a high speed internet. I can't do anything without it.

I am hoping this will hit in my area. A great hit in Saint Louis and it's now available in Southern California. It is also rolling Northeast as i write this. They are looking to cover a majority of the charter footprint in 2010.

Cable is way better than DSL. The speed itself is way faster than anything offered
out there. I am looking forward for a wider coverage. I will definitely share this to
my friends who live in the area where coverage is available.

Quick FAQ Post

So, here i am feeling a bit tired and bored. I just officially came in my office right now...wahhh, and it's 5:20pm..My work hour is over..hahaha! I know, i used to work in my laptop upstairs using remote access. It is pretty convenient.

So, here are some random facts about me.

What is your ethnicity?
Well, i am a Filipino citizen. I am 50% chinese, 25% spanish and 25% filipino. I guess, that's how i can best describe about it.

Do you wear contacts?
Yes, i do wear them. But not when i'm at home. I usually wear them when i go out of the house. I can't see when it's far.

What are your favorite places to shop?
I am a cheapy person. I shop at trendy stores. I am not really branded kind of girl. I go to Forever21, H&M, charlotte russ and the like.

When did you start blogging?
Not long ago. My friend Phebie encouraged me to blog. I am a working from home mom. I can be busy and be bored at times. So, i can sometimes find time to write.

How do you like to blog?
Well, i find it as an outlet or extension of my obsessions and feelings. I treat my blog as my diary. When i was a kid, i keep a "secret" diary. When we were little, we treat diaries as a secret book. But in this blog world, we share it to the whole world and the readers.

Who old are you?
hah! I am 28.

Do you like life?
I love life and i am happy of what i am and what i have right now. I am blessed. Thank God.

Okay that's all I can think of off the top of my head. Let me know if you have more FAQs and I'll do a part 2.

Misunderstanding in Marriage

Knock on wood but this is not my personal story. I have a couple friend who lives in New Jersey. They look perfect together and blessed with an adorable son. What i didn't know about them was the on the rocks relationship. They have been going through a lot. Oh well, they both have their own stories. But what i am pretty sure is that they have problems. And they seem not to get along well. I know they have researched a lot about going through separation or divorce.
I need to share with them about divorce lawyers nj.

I believe that it pays to hire a professional to make things right.

Family Travel

Since we have Denise in our family, vacation has been tough. I have to look for hotels that are family friendly and safe for kids. We are planning to go to Orlando Florida next year and i came across with harness buddy .

I cannot wait for our family vacation next year with a peace of mind.
I am booking my hotel and vacation plans with them.


I love Friday nights. Other than Saturday night, it is a stress free night. I am hanging out with my hubby in our basement. Just chillin, watching ball, drinking Patron..Yeah, right...I am a bit tipsy right now. bwahaha!

Tomorrow, my daughter has a puppet show class at the library. I'm excited. We haven't been in the library for couple of weeks now. And i don't know how she will behave. Fingers Crossed***

My weight loss challenge is getting tough. I've been doing my daily run coupled with a healthy diet. I've been drinking lots of tea and water. I don't think i lost any weight this week but i feel a lot healthier than ever.

Christmas is fast approaching. And we have a party on the 19th of December with friends. I am going for xmas decor shopping tomorrow maybe. I hope i can find some good deals.

Oh wait, my elementary bestfriend Phebie just informed me, that i got PR 2 on my blog site. I have no idea what that means...But she told me, it's a good thing. And i have a good reason to celebrate. I am happy right now.

Okey, i think that's all for now.

Screen Locking System

With the growing technology we have now, we have to stay on top of everything. I was looking for a program that will lock out my screen and gives the other network administrators in my office complete control over idle workstations. And tadang i found auto log off when i googled about it. I am not familiar with how windows really work nowadays. This is basically a screen locking system for Windows that extend capability of the standard workstation lock.

Screen pass can be configured to automatically log off if the screen saver is running and inactivity continues in a certain time set. During auto log off, unsaved changes in open applications are discarded. The auto log out can also be set to logout, restart, shutdown or powerdown.

This is very useful in my office work where some of my co-workers leave work without logging off or shutting down the computer.

Stila Kajal in Topaz


This is an eyeliner. It is not white or cream color. It is the exact color of your waterline. What i love about it is that it will intensify your waterline color thus making your eyes pop even more. You look like you are wide awake. It also glides on very easily without making too much effort.

The Book Lover in Ebook


In my spare time, i really love to spend it reading a good book. But lately i have been hooked up with computer, internet and the online world. But i just found out lately that i can still enjoy reading without having the physical book. This is how convenient the online world is. I found a search engine for electronic books. And the cool thing is, you can search by country or any subject you can think of. Like for example, i came from the Philippines and i want to read something about Alamat or history. I can easily find it by using the search engine then it will show and narrow down the search too. So, i can still enjoy my passion of reading in my handy computer wherever i go. Another thing is, most of the books are here in a convenient pdf format. You can actually save it and read it at another spare time without searching for it again.

I am so glad to have found pdf search Try this and you'll know
what i am talking about.

This is a convenient way to enjoy reading. Let me know if you have tried this
and what your thoughts are.
