Baldwin Brothers..

Hollywood is lucky to have the four Baldwin brothers as actors.. Of them all, I love Alec the most.. and William the sexiest.. Hey, if you do not know them, well, you better check out movies like Backdraft, It's Complicated, and many others.. Google them, if you must.. But if you find Baldwin hardware, well, that's another story, so better do another search, hehehe..


Even if Alec have aged a bit, he is still a good actor and a hunk at that.. Stephen and Daniel are cute guys too.. No wonder they get so much attention and appreciation as the four siblings band together for their mother's charity, the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund.

I wish I could see them in flesh...

Out of Libya

I am happy that a lot of Filipinos are being evacuated by their employers in Libya. The government is doing a great thing following up on them their. Although there are still others who were not able to join the other evacuees for reasons that they are not able to cross teh border as they have left their passports, still, they are being taken cared of by their employers. On the other hand, I read that Americans were ferried out from Libya and are now on their way to the US.. Good for them. I bet those ferries have whistler radar detector to help them in their journey..

I guess all we have to do is pray for everyone's safety..

Better Opportunities

A family friend's daughter just passed the Nursing Licensure Examinations held last December 2010. Prior to that, she had been busy applying for science jobs in the different high schools and colleges in the city. Well, I am sure she will get better chances now that she is a licensed or registered nurse. She could apply as school nurse if she wants to.. Or she could work in the hospitals.. Anything is possible. For as long as she does not fall short of self expectations, as well as dropping her self esteem off her palms.. 

Anyway, they will be visiting us next weekend so we could probably talk about these matters when she's finally here.. I just think there are better opportunities for her now..

Sleep Please...

For two weeks now, I have trouble sleeping on time. I mean, yes, I sleep late as in five in the morning. But that was already normal for me, as my sleep pattern had changed drastically. Unfortunately for a week now, I find it difficult to sleep at home. One time, Lili and I had to check in a hotel in the middle of town just to be able to sleep. My sister then joked that I should take sleeping aids.. uhm.. sleeping pills or tablets perhaps? But no.. I don't think it's gotten worse as that.. Nevertheless, it would be helpful if I read about lunesta reviews.. I mean, who knows, I might take a plunge at that one day..

In the meantime, I shall try to sleep as much as I can.. Can't allow me to get hospitalized again for stress and lack of sleep. Chong Hua Hospital became richer by P 49,900 plus.. for a two days and two nights bed rest a few years ago. Good thing it was covered by my health card.. Woah!

Let's Eat Japanese..

When I was living in Singapore, my sister and I were always on the lookout for diet pills that work. They have good Chinese medicine clinics, so we always drop by whenever we see one. Then our uncle told us not to take them, instead, eat different kind of diet. He was talking about Japanese food. He said that they are low in fat and are mostly made of veggies.. One time, he took us to Sakae Sushi and we ate there for lunch..










At the end of our meal, we were full, but not heavy and bloated.. Well, that must be because of the Japanese green tea that was served afterwards...

Not Food, But Sleep

Would you eat a lot if there were so much food in front of you? Or would you feel a certain fullness just by looking at them? Well, lately, I have been sleeping and waking up late, that I do not feel hunger at all. Not that I am using hydroxycut or anything, but really. I am not in the mood for eating no matter how much food is served in front of me. They are my favorites, but I did not want to partake of them. 

Well, my sisters told me to eat because our father made them, but I never really had the appetite.. Instead, I am craving for more sleep..

Immersions...

I wanna move to Tagaytay or Baguio, where it's cold. Yes, and live in a house with glass mosaic tiles while strawberries or pineapples abound. Maybe in the middle of a pineapple plantation huh? I think it will be fun to live that way.. But then, I have to consider just once. On the contrary, can I really survive without my Lili in sight? Nuh-- forget it. I will stay where Lili is, or I take her with me. If it can't be comfortable for her, then I won't go. That's just it.

I remember when I was in college we had to live far away amongst farmers and fisher folks. And I was assigned at Sumilao,  Bukidnon, and lived in the middle of a corn field. It was fun.. I had total communion with nature and God..

Scars

A knee scar is better than an acne scar on the face or back. Well, that is what I always believe in. At least with knee scars, they can be hidden by wearing clothes that are below the knee, or just right above the knee line to cover knee scars. But with any scar on the face? Would you be able to hide them? That is why a lot of people splurge on a good acne cream to make them go away before they can even create scars..

But with scars and broken hearts, it takes time for healing to take place.. A child who is scarred for life is truly a challenge to raise, teach and understand.. Sometimes, just being with kids who are scarred eats you up and overwhelms you to the core.. I make sure my daughter, brother and niece do not undergo that, as there are many kids today who may live in huge houses, or enjoy freedom and wealth, but whose parents are not there to care for them or whenever they are needed..

Celebrating Valentines Day at Home


Modern living room furniture and romance is quite bundled and tangled in this season of love. Why? Well, most couples these days celebrate Valentines day, not on the exact date for so many varied reasons, than most. Of course, modern furniture have a way of creating a romantic ambiance, add aromatherapy candles and lighting, plus music--- then what do you get? Even your ordinary dining room furniture can do the same.. But of course, you just need to have lots of determination for the said "feel" of the room. Lots of creativity and positive energy..

Others, as they wish for a more professional stint to make the day special would check in at a hotel in town or out of town, and celebrate Valentines Day there.. But if you must celebrate the special day at home, a little twist here and there, and you're all set.. Oh, do not forget the food, the roses and the romantic music--- 

But us, we celebrated it with Pizza, Barbecue and a Brazo de Mercedes, during our simple Valentines Day family dinner...
 Italian Pizzas with a twist...
 Below is a simple barbecue recipe... to die for..
 and of course, Brazo de Mercedes....
Simple and Yummy Valentines Day everyone.. My family enjoyed this as much as I did.. Hope you have a blast in yours..

Ready for Valentines Day?

My friend Larry and his wife have no specific plans for Valentines day, but their son, Jeremiah, have plans to surprise his parents. He had been tinkering with the car audio for some special effect, to which ever project, he is not telling anyone. He said that he will be controlling the sound that will come out of it on Valentines day, so that his parents will have a romantic ambiance, even inside their car. Hmm. I still do not have any clue how he will be able to pull it off, but I trust that he knows what he is doing. 

He has also ordered from me and my sister a dozen fruit bars and a bouquet to match.. Good thing he is not into ladies at his age.. If he is, I know he will be busy pursuing his lady love with all his antics and gadgetry.. 

Least, he is ready.. How about you?

Concrete Polishing Tools

My uncle once told us that, if we are to have a buyer for the condominium unit, we must take care of the unit. So when he noticed that there were cracks on the tile of the main bathroom, he sent word to the administrator for some workers to fix it. So workers immediately came for tile removal, and worked their way to removing not just three reported cracked tiles, but also those we noticed to be changed within the period of their work. They brought with them tools, such as tile cutters, floor grinder, even a polisher for concrete polishing, after the tile replacement have dried. It was truly hard work for them, Indians and Bangladesh workers. I wonder if they have been trained for such exquisite labor. Or if they have visited the website www.innovatechproducts.com, where gadgets and tools for their kind of work are featured.

They have the usual gadgets for doing jobs like thrashing and removing tiles, concrete and even cement. They have quite unique and advanced products like the Terminator, which removes tiles, flooring and all other materials used for flooring jobs, in half the time. By far, it saves the workers not only time, but also energy, so they will definitely be able to cover a huge area in half the time. Of course, after removal, then replacement, after-which, making the replacement shine is the next task of the workers. With the patented product known as i-shine, the workers will be able to bring life to the dull floor.

Anyway, i-shine and Terminator are just two of the best machines and gadgets sold at innovatechproducts.com, and if you visit their site, I am sure you will be amazed at all the others that you will find. Overall, their products will revolutionize replacement and repair of floors and walls. Quite a good investment if you are in the business..

Harakiri or Guilt?

Rest in Peace General Angelo Reyes.. I would like to say that even if I am not really a fan of the late general.  I have nothing against him also. If he had done something wrong, I am sure it is just a matter of following orders from his bosses. That's the military way, "Obey first, before you complain". A lot of people speculate that the general committed suicide to keep a little dignity that was stripped off him during the senate hearing. A lot also are speculating that it is in fact an admission of guilt that he killed himself.

Ah.. They are both speculations that no one can actually prove to be so. Given the benefit of the doubt, unless proven otherwise, he still remains NOT guilty of the accusations as per hearing. If you ask me, which I doubt anyone would, his suicide in front of his parents tomb is some form of helplessness that every child feels whenever a serious matter is at hand. We all go back to our parents, no matter how old we are.  Age is not a hindrance for such comfort. But being that they lay there in silence as they are six feet below the ground, then it's really pointless. I just wish the general did not do what he had done, as I feel for the bereaved family he left behind. Whatever the speculations, accusations, and how others saw him after that fateful hearing at the senate, he is after all, a father, grandfather and husband to his loved ones.. I pray that justice will prevail and that his death may not hamper the investigations. After all, every Juan dela Cruz deserve to know the truth..

Tikoy Anyone?

We just celebrated Chinese New Year with this tikoy.. It symbolizes good things and more blessing for the new year. And though we are not a Chinese family, having lots of tikoy at home during Chinese New Year is a must, plus all the other beliefs, particularly about food. What to have on the table and what not to put. I wonder if most Chinese families would also prepare adapexin-p for all those goodies.. Ahh.. Chinese New Year is celebrated mostly with lots of food, so it just follows that dieting may be jeopardized.. Or maybe not, hehehe..

Anyway, Tikoy is best eaten when soft, but when it has hardened, that's the time that it can be cooked.. This one that we had even had instructions on the box..
