Timing Is Everything

My hubby's colleague is getting married this coming February to his foreigner boy friend.  This is actually her second marriage as the first one, for some reasons failed.  She already got two daughters from her first marriage but she also wants to start a new life with her fiancee and have another baby with him, if possible.  She's a bit worried about this baby issue as she is already in her late 30's.  She knows for a fact that having a baby at this age is quite risky.

Timing when to baby dance is one of the most important thing to take note when you’re trying to conceive. The best time to get pregnant is when the woman is fertile. How will she know she’s fertile? There are many options nowadays to detect ovulation. According to http://pregnancytips.org, a woman can detect ovulation by using a basal body thermometer to track her temperature, she can also use an ovulation predictor kit or an OPK, and she may also use a free fertility calculator app available online. Whatever a woman uses to track her ovulation, what’s important is when she knows she’s fertile, it is important to not lose that opportunity to try to get pregnant. That is the best time for the sperm to be able to catch the egg for more chances of conceiving. 

As a friend, I just want to wish her good luck as me and my hubby witnessed how she did her best to give love a second chance and start a new life with her new found love.  I know that being a mother is so precious and having children is indeed a blessing from the Lord.  Our friend deserves to be happy and we'll do our part to advise her on whatever is necessary to ensure that she would have a new baby.

Christmas Dinner

What I long to experience this time is a Christmas dinner complete with a stage performer preferably a ballad singer who could entertain me with his or her songs.  That, together with a sumptuous dinner will be perfect for a Christmas celebration.  I've been telling my kids that I am looking forward to watch a dinner concert in the near future.  This type of concerts are usually held in Manila, so it very unlikely for me to attend one unless I happened to be at the place during a particular concert that I like.  Hopefully, one could be organized to be shown at Subic, so I could attend and this will be a simple dream come true. :)

It won't be much to my kid's preference, but I also love to watch a show with artists playing saxophones.  You know that type of saxophone using synthetic reeds? That would be awesome!

Anyway, a series of mini concerts will be held at the River Walk of Harbor Point Ayala Malls this whole month of December, so probably it would be nice to be able to see one.  I will certainly mark my calendar for this series of shows.

New Beginnings...

I did not expect that this year will turn out to be a shaky one for me.  The demise of the members of my family came as an unpleasant surprise.  Everything happens in a snap of a finger, it never crossed my mind that I will lose my elder brother and mother one after the other within a month.  It was a terrifying experience.  Exactly a year after I resigned from my work abroad, things came unexpectedly. My Mom's health has deteriorated a lot until she gets totally bed ridden for a couple of months prior to her untimely death.  Well, my Mom is already old and I have long prepared myself that one day, I will lose her but I did not expect that this will happen very soon.  I managed to stay at home for one whole year with her before she passed away which became a consolation to me. Given a choice, I wish to have spent more time with her.  I hardly spent time with her as I was always busy working. Admittedly, we did not have a perfect relationship as we also have our own share of disagreements and misunderstandings, but I couldn't deny the fact that I still love her just the same.





From this bad experience that I had this year, what saddens me me most is the fact that I was not able to make it up with my brother.  I hardly seen him for years.  Fortunately, I managed to talk to him 2 months before he passed away but this does not satisfy me.  I felt that I should have done more to spend more time with him in a more meaningful way and for this, I felt so sorry.

From these experiences, I realized one thing.... time is really gold, and it shouldn't be wasted on harboring ill feelings towards other people, more so if those people are the ones closest to your heart. Admittedly, I was not communicating with my siblings for years due to some personal issues but all what I had inside my heart vanished after this experience.  Losing two people who are very dear to me is not a thing to be happy about, but the fact that this has opened new doors for renewed relationships is indeed a reward.







This new beginning has opened my eyes in a number of ways, and I vowed to correct my mistakes and what I have failed to do.  God is really good and I thank Him so much for giving me a new life.  Now, I have more reasons to smile for ahead me are more meaningful memories that I would cherish for a life time.

Best Selling Musical Equipment

Time really flies so fast.  October is about to end, we are nearly approaching Christmas season and everybody is just so excited about it.  It will be a month for parties, reunions and celebrations. Mommies will be very busy in the kitchen and teen aged kids will be going to a lot of parties.  If we want to make our parties more exciting and fun, using the best musical equipment is a must.  It's now time to shop for more sophisticated products as these will be on a bargain soon.  Some online shops like Musicians and Friends are offering their best selling amplifiers and you could always have a chance to get a complete list of their products on sale.  We could write down our names together with our respective addresses and Send for our free catalog.

I'm sure it would be great to have everything complete for a series of parties to be thrown during the holiday season.

Caring For Your Feet

I regularly go for manicure and pedicure.  I love to have my nails done and for me, it's part of my get up, however I do not regularly go for foot spa.  Although I would admit having this kind of treatment once in a while, I do not really put much effort and concern about my feet.  Because of this, I suffered from cracked heels.  Little do I know that just like our hands and arms, feet should also be well taken care off.  After all, it is the most abused part of our body, yet when it comes to proper caring, it is always being neglected.

I do wash my feet regularly, in fact I do it few times a day.  I normally wash my feet with soap and water and I make sure they are clean before I finally go to bed.  However, I think I lack on moisturizing my feet daily.  I never put lotion, oil or foot cream every night which I think should be the right thing to do.  Now, I make sure that I apply lotion or petroleum jelly and wear socks before I sleep which I believe is necessary to seal in the moisture.

I don't have problem wearing the right foot wear as I always make sure that what I wear is comfortable enough for me.  I also seldom wear high heels as I'm already tall.  I think because of this "cracked heel experience", I will now be more careful in taking care of my feet particularly in using the right products to moisturize my feet.  I would also consider going for foot spa treatment on a regular basis.




Caring for our feet is as essential as caring for other parts of our body and should also be a priority. 

It would certainly be nice to have a happy feet. :)

Octoberfest

Every year, our city is celebrating Octoberfest and this usually happens during the last week of the month.  This once a year "party on the streets" celebration is usually done in conjunction with the "Halloween".  During these days, you will find live bands on stage along the busy street of Magsaysay Drive.  Live band competition has also been one of the highlights of this event.  Watching the competition, you will be amazed by the competing bands performances.  I'm not so sure if they're using sdx but you will surely be delighted with their kind of music. 

Aside from live band competition, you would also feel the "real party atmosphere" dining on the streets and watching people come and go and participate on various activities prepared for the public. Drinking, dancing and partying is just a common scenario but you could also watch some variety shows and if you're lucky enough, you would also have a chance to see some famous celebrities invited just for the event. 

Indeed, Octoberfest is always being looked forward to every year and I'm glad that I'm now here to witness the event.

Zalora Shopping

It's been a while since I published a post in this blog.  I was preoccupied`with many things lately, thus I seldom find a time to blog.  This is precisely the reason why this post on Zalora shopping was made quite late.  My daughter Mika shopped at Zalora around last week of August I guess and I just wanted to share her experience here in this post.

It's not actually the first time that we shopped from Zalora but just like the first time, everything was done fast and efficient.  Few days after she made her order online, she already got her package.  She was extremely happy to receive her new pairs.



Mika decided to purchase these new pairs of shoes after having learned of the site wide sale.  She was happy to get a huge discount.  After all, she used her own money to buy these shoes. :)  It's a good thing that she knows how to save and handle her money and doesn't need to bother me every time she wants to buy her stuff.

I could not vouch on the quality of these products yet though as she has only acquired these more than a month ago.  I will definitely post here in case something went wrong with the purchased products but so far, no problem has been encountered yet as of this writing.




The best thing about online shopping is saving your time and money on unnecessary expenses should you made your purchase from a physical store.  Not only you have to spend on transportation but you could also save on unplanned purchases and dining in on expensive fast foods and restaurants around the mall.
