Clay Art

Found this cool clay art project online and I'm thinking of doing this myself at home.  I think it's pretty easy. You just have to collect leaves and flowers of different shapes and lay them on top of the clay.  Pressed these leaves and flowers against the clay to form their shapes.  Best to use as magnets!
I haven't done any clay art yet actually but I've seen some who's much into clay art and I think it's pretty interesting.  Given a choice, I prefer to have my own art work displayed in my house rather than store brought art pieces.  I didn't have a luxury of time though and would just settle for doing some once in a while. This hobby can even help you save few bucks as art works that can be bought from shops are quite expensive.  I really like to practice frugal living.  You will reap all the fruits of your labor in the end by being frugal.  Doing things as a hobby and being able to save money out of that hobby means a lot for a home maker like me.

Halloween Sale

I've been going to the mall frequently over the past two weeks and as expected, I've been seeing lots of Halloween stuff on sale.  Halloween costumes and decors can be found anywhere and sometimes, I cannot help but recall those times when me and my kids used to attend tricks or treat.  It was really fun especially when we hunt for costumes days before the actual event.  Our company used to hold treats or tricks yearly and I always take the opportunity to buy discounted tickets for the employees. Oh my, how I missed those days. :)
I wonder if there's also a sale of musical instruments as my friend wanted to buy a guitar for her son as a birthday gift which happened to fall on October 31st.  He's been attending guitar lessons every weekend and my friend was really pleased with the outcome.  She told me that she need to get a better guitar for him this time.  I suggested her to just source it online as more often, online shops are giving big discounts especially that we a…

Why Did I Quit My Job?

I can't believe that I'm almost two weeks now at home with my kids.  I would admit that I was really very busy during this period with loads of things to do at home.  But, I hardly notice the passing of each day as I am really enjoying what I'm doing now especially that I'm doing these things with my kids.  I'm making up for the lost times and I am very seldom to go online now compared to when I was still working in Cambodia. Maybe because, I'm still catching up with lots of household chores.  My off line and online friends knew how domesticated I am.  I love to clean, I love to cook, I love to organize and I love gardening a lot.  Contrary to what my colleagues said, I have more things to do now compared to when I was still working.  I remembered one of them telling me that I might get bored if I will stay at home for good.  But I told her, "I don't think so!"  I knew it!  I would be busy more than ever. :)

It's Leptospirosis This Time!

Two days ago, I've heard about the new epidemic outbreak in Olongapo City. After the sad stories brought about by the killer flood last September 23, residents of Olongapo, including our family, are working very hard to restore our homes to it's original shape.  So, hearing about this second bad news really made me sad. I've seen from the news that 6 persons already died and more than 200 patients are now confined at the James L. Gordon Memorial Hospital and were diagnosed of being infected with the same disease.
It's very alarming since we do not know yet how far the epidemic would go, but I am really so worried for my family right now.  I hope, they didn't get the disease.  I feel sad about "my kababayans" in Olongapo City.  I know that many families are still at the evacuation centers and now, another unexpected problem occurred.  I hope those who are in the hospital right now are able to take the proper medications and could recover from the disease so…

How to Choose the Right Acting School

There are a number of acting schools in Los Angeles and New York, so it is important to carefully choose which one is right for you. Prestigious acting schools, like International Academy of Film and Television, can provide you with training on both film and television. Other schools may focus more on one form of entertainment than the other. It is important that you have a general idea about whether you want to focus on film, television, or theater so that you can find the right school for your future goals.
Sit in on Classes

Most acting schools will allow potential students to sit in on classes so that you can get a general feel for how the class runs. Their curriculum should cover all of the aspects of the film making process, from acting to directing, so that you understand the bigger picture. Call the school to schedule a sit-in.

Participate in a Short Film
You need to get as much experience as possible as soon as you can. Whether you are participating in short films, school producti…

Almost Done Packing

I'm about 70% completed in fixing and packing my things.  I still have 5 more days to go and I will finally set foot to my native land.  As expected, I won't be able to bring back all my things at home. I'm just traveling alone and I won't be able to manage carrying loads of things on the road. Imagine traveling all the way from Cambodia to Chantaburi to Bangkok Thailand? Well, it's really no joke to carry tons of things. I just hope that I won't have any problem along the way.
I've worked in Cambodia for 6 and a half years and from that span of time, I have acquired a lot of stuff. But since, I've already shifted from one company to another, I've already lost almost half of my things as I've given away most to some local staff from my previous work place. From that company, I went back home first to the Philippines to spend a 2 weeks vacation before I finally headed to my new job site. That's why I've decided to leave my things and just …
