I just finished watching episodes 1-10 over the weekend in a DVD and I'm on the lookout for the remaining episodes for Season 1...
1. What is the one household chore that you/your hubby love/s to do?Why?
I like to do the laundry compared to ironing clothes since I find it much easier to do....hehehe. Hubby on the other hand loves to wash the dishes since I'm the one whose in charge of cooking. Also, he doesn't know how to cook so he will stick to cleaning the dishes and utensils that I used instead.
We both like to do grocery since it's a form of shopping without feeling guilty...ahahaha!
2. What is that one household chore that you/your hubby hate/s to do?Why?
For me, I don't like to ironed clothes because it's a HOT chore to do! For hubby, it's ironing the clothes as well and cooking...hehehe.
3. What is the best thing about Home/Household Management that you learned from your parents that you are currently applying to your own family life now?
We don't have kids yet but it's good to practice helping each other doing the household chores and in the future when I have a kids of my own, I will teach them to do household chores little by little. I don't like lazy people so I don't want my kids to be like that.
4. Share with N@W one tried and tested easy-to-prepare recipe that youor your cook prepares which is considered to be a family favorite.
I got this from Del Monte Kitchenomics recipe and it's really easy and budget friendly:
1/4 kg regular hotdog, cut into 1/2” diagonal slices
1pc large onion, sliced
1pouch (200 g) DEL MONTE Sweet Spicy Tomato Sauce
1/2 cup whole corn kernels
100 g Baguio beans, sliced diagonally
1. SAUTÉ hotdog and onion in 2 tbsp oil. Add DEL MONTE Tomato Sauce, 1/2 tsp iodized fine salt (or 1/2 tbsp iodized rock salt) and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes.
2. ADD 1/4 cup water, corn and Baguio beans. Cook until vegetables are tender.

Today, it's tough to apply for a migration in Australia unlike before. So many requirements that you need to accomplish. My aunt whose my mother's sister considered to migrate here through finding a job. She didn't continue to pursue it and decided to try for a different country instead.
When I was in highschool, I was thinking if maybe one of our relatives can help us migrate to Aussie or maybe asked us to visit them. I know that my godmother is in Victoria, I'm not sure about her siblings and parents on where they reside. If I had a chance to visit her, I could probably stay in one of Melbourne Hotels since it's the city neareast to Victoria.
Then I could go to the famous Opera House and book myself in one of Sydney Hotels. After which I can have my picture taken in the Story Bridge and Kangaroo Point Cliffs so better make a reservation in any of the Brisbane Hotels. If in case I want to go to the Western part of Australia to see the Perth Cultural Center and stroll down to Kings Park I could definitely used some informations on the Perth Hotels.

#2 >> I get in touch with my grade school, highschool and college classmates! Eevn though were all so busy with our own personal lives, they still remember the yester years that we shared. Some are married and some are single. Others are working abroad and keeping in touch through the net. Thanks to emails, friendster and YM
#3 >> I got to talk to my brother and sister almost everyday apart from using the mobile phone. So eventhough I don't make a frequent visit to my parent's house, I still got an update on what's going on with each one of them (it's in my system to know everything thet they do, guess that's what the eldest do...hehehe)
Though the internet has some downside (viruses, spywares, etc.) one thing is for sure, it became a part of our everyday lives that is hard to get rid off.
To those who will be all you have to do is keep this circulating. Even if it’s to only one person. In memory of anyone you know that has been struck down by a serious illness like Lupus or Cancer or is still living with it.

Today, there are lots of calculators out in the market. Probably the ones we have used before are outdated compared to the ones that we have now. I've just seen a website where they featured a wide variety of calculators. One thing that impressed me are the graphing calculators where it has a bigger screen and you can see the different shapes and measurement. Different brands offer this kind of calculator. Apart from Casio, Hewlett Packard and Texas Instruments are the best brands for these kind. If we could have just like this before when we were studying it will be much easier.
Engineering students will definitely love it! My brother can make a use of this one in the future when he starts studying college. He told me that he wants to be an engineer when he grows up. I hope so too...

Apart from the feast, today is also Manila Day! Lucky for the students who go to school in Manila since there will be no classes for them (sigh! I miss being a student).
But most of all, today is my father's birthday! Too bad I can't see him but that's fine. I already gave him his birthday gift 2 weeks ago...hehehe. His already 58 years old and I'm joking about his age telling him that he only have to wait for 2 years and he will be a senior citizen.
My father and I are not that close but in some ways, his my ally especially when I'm having discussions with my mother. His the one who is more supportive last year when Hubby told him that we are getting married. I was actually thinking that time that he will object but to my surprise, he was cool about it.
Hopefully he can get rid of his smoking habit. His pretty stubborn in letting go of this vice...

But apart from that inflatables can be seen in carnivals and kiddie parties as well. I saw in an entertainment website wherein a celebrity couple here in Manila organized a 7th kiddie party for their fraternal twins. The theme of the birthday was High School Musical so they made it like a carnival setup. They had the Inflatable Bounce, Inflatable Slide and the Inflatable Sticky Wall that was a hit among the kids and adults.
For Filipinos overseas especially the ones living in California, there's a company that provides inflatables for all ages. Check out their following branches: Inflatable Party Rentals Sacramento, Inflatable Party Rentals San Diego and Inflatable Party Rentals Los Angeles. Apart from that, they also offer event planning services.
I was having a tough time thinking on what kind of game I will organized but thanks to Google, I decided to chose the Photo Scavenger Hunt Game. After all, we love camera so might as well used it to the game and I'm sure my team mates will love this as well.
I divided the team into 2 groups with 3 members each. They will need a camera for each group and a list of scenes/things to hunt for. The ONLY RULE is that everyone has to be in each picture. Rotate photographers so everyone can participate. I've given them a time limit of 10 minutes to accomplish everything. It was really fun since they are running around the office taking pictures here and there.

I got to watched the NBA Game 6 though...hehehehe. Since it's Celtics homecourt, I already had a feeling that they are going to win and get the championship title. Let's say I'm in denial during the first half of the game, trying to convince myself that Lakers can beat them =P
1st Quarter - Lakers was leading courtesy of Kobe Bryant. Kobe managed to have three 3 pointers at that period.
2nd Quarter - this is a different scenario. Celtics managed to take the lead while Lakers trying to get close with the scores.
3rd Quarter - this is the breakout point of Celtics where they maintained to be on the lead while slowly pulling aawy from Lakers. If I'm not mistaken when 3rd quarter ended, Celtics had a 23 point lead.
4th Quarter - Celtics keeps on going stronger and gained a 40 point lead with Lakers! Yikes! Talk about trouble. I guess that the Lakers decided to give up the fight at this time since most of their shots will not count in the basket. Kobe Bryant loose his magic. Celtics on the other hand are starting to celebrate during the last 2 minutes.
Celtics play the game well and they are VERY GOOD. Their defense is excellent and most of the players contribute with the shots which is lacking on the Lakers team.
Apart from that, Celtics wanted the title badly since the last time they've won a championship was in 1986. So I guess that's the main reason they are driven and motivated to win.
CONGRATULATIONS TO CELTICS! YOU DESERVE IT! Ü

This coffee break is very timely for me! Everyone deserves a treat after working so hard...

The good news though is that Lakers manage to spaced itself from Celtics. On 4th quarter the scores were so close that any minutes and seconds counts especially for the Lakers since their rivalry team needs one more win to get the NBA championship.
Lakers were lead by Bryant, Gasol and Odom on this game (103) whereas Celtics were lead by Pierce, Allen and Garnett (98).
The only question now will be....
Can Lakers beat Celtics on Game 6 considering that they will be playing in Boston's home court? Will their be Game 7 or Celtics will finish it once and for all?
This will be VERY EXCITING!
Blessed are the husband and wife who are as polite and courteous to one another as they are to their friends.
Blessed are they who love their mates more than any other person in the world, and who joyfully fulfill their marriage vow of a lifetime of fidelity and mutual helpfulness to one another.

Just like malls who offers discounts, online shopping does it too! I stumble upon a website that offer lots of discounts and freebies that any shopaholic would grab. They offer coupons ranging from Clothing down to Internet Services that varies percentage discounts. Apart from the fact that is very convenient and comfortable to shop with just a few clicks away, you don't have to wait for any SALES in the malls to buy that things you like. What's more, there's no need to register and no fee required.
electronic gadgets and entertainment freak.
For pet lovers, they offer 10% discount for our furry friends for you and your'e pet to enjoy.
Totally fab! It's like having your own mall and sale at the same time
I always got excited and motivated to look around the appliance center and home furniture for some things to buy for our place. After all it's still shopping right?
In the future I want to have our very own house. That will really be awesome! Though I'm not really an expert in cooking I can still whip up easy meals that my Hubby loves to eat. If I could have the classy and sturdy Kitchen Appliances at our future home, I will be inspired to cook and invent some dishes everyday
Apart from the kitchen appliances, I would also love to have a reliable Washing Machine so I don't have to avail the laundry service and I can stop washing some clothes manually everyday. Of course, a Dryer is needed especially when the rainy season comes and we all know that it's tough to dry clothes on wet season.

Let's just say that I have lots of things to blog about... Guess my mind is well rested after a 3-day weekend that's why it's active....ahahahaha!
Let's see if I have anything to blog tomorrow. Probably there's a few that I can think of...
Also, I realized that I haven't been to Brian Gorell's blog for like 2-3 weeks...I'm not aware of it until now when I'm busy typing away this entry. I wonder what's new on his blog...maybe I should browse after this...
As expected, Fridays are considered to be the "Gimikan" day here in Manila whether if it's payday or not. We have to wait for 30 minutes outside the Crocodile Grill in Greenbelt 3 Makati before we can have a proper seating place. While waiting, we are having chit-chats and capturing kodak moments...hehehe.
Rod's name finally called! Thank goodness, this means we can sit properly and we can eat! Yum!Yum! After all of us have been seated, food starts to fill our table...
Let's see if I can remember the menu that we have: Pansit Canton/Bihon, Pork Sisig (delisioso), Grilled Squid, BBQ Chicken, Rice, Oriental Soup (I think), Kare-Kare and Mixed Vegetables Curry. The dessert is ice cream (mine is strawberry).
Here's the whole gang while eating....
...and I wish to acknowledged the host of the dinner who paid all the bills...ahahahaha!
Muchas Gracias Rod (aka Oieydie)... till next time ;)
