How’s your long weekend so far?

Sunday, August 28, 2011

Because Monday and Tuesday are special holidays here, a lot of people are enjoying a very long weekend. Two days down, two more days to go :) For some, the long break is equivalent to an eating fest (I bet the topic of conversation for the next week will be about fat burners for those who've had so much to eat, LOL!). For others, shopping or going to the movies. How is it for you, so far?

It is different for us though, since Ane had to work on both Saturday and Sunday. BUT the next time he will report for work will be on the 5th already :) Talk about a pretty long week, eh? Oh how I wish we have the extra money to drive or fly away to a nice destination! We also have errands to do, anyway. So I guess we’ll just have to make the most out of our time, then?

For now, I need to finish some online tasks before I can call it a night. I plan to spend quality time with my family this week. :)

Adorable Kids in Trigon commercials

Friday, August 19, 2011

These videos are kinda old but found them posted in Chico’s blog. I thought of sharing it here too. Can I just say that these kids are just sooo adorable? I remember my nephew J who would converse animatedly :)

Actos Side Effects

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Sometimes we really have to make sure the medicines we take would not cause alarming side effects. Like this drug called Actos, the chemical name of which is Pioglitazone. It has been found out that consumption of this drug for type2 Diabetes may cause cardiovascular injury (ie heart attack, heart failure). The products actually include Actos, ActoplusMet, Competact, and Duetact. If you suspect you have been victimized by this drug, you may file an Actos lawsuit. But before that, your lawyers will have to commission medical experts to really say that your personal injury was caused by the said drug.


I am supposed to hunt for Sale events to post here, something that is going to happen this weekend or the next. But if you have closely followed this blog, you’ll notice that this post just sprung out of nowhere. LOL. Yes, folks, a filler that is at least two weeks late is what you’re seeing.

Moving on…




Amazing Batangas House

Isn’t this breathtaking?

Who would have thought that this house is located at the south of Manila, in the province of Batangas and not somewhere in the Caribbean? Amazing! Check out some images of the interior which are equally beautiful as the pool deck:

I love the color scheme of the house and I love that it feels so bright yet cozy. I can totally imagine living in this abode.

Personal Injury Lawyers

A few days ago, I heard of the local teenager who passed away after their vehicle collided with a bus. The poor kid did not even make it to the hospital and nothing could be done to save him. His companions when the accident happened is a different story altogether. They were all injured, including the teenager’s dad. It is still a time for mourning but sooner of later, the survivors will need the start with the legal battle that will surely ensue. I am not sure if we have dedicated injury attorneys here but in Texas, one can hire an Austin personal injury lawyer (like the ones from O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949) to represent him. The case seemed clear that someone has to be answerable for the accident but the assistance of a lawyer will assure the victims that they will be properly compensated for the damages.

Rex Navarrete in Manila

Friday, August 12, 2011

Before Mikey Bustos got famous in YouTube for his stand-up comedy/vlogs, there was Rex Navarrete entertaining the audience with this scripts. I remember the husband would listen to his monologues every night. At time I would listen with him, and I would laugh with him too. The scripts are pretty funny, huh.

This year, the man himself is coming to Manila on August 24.

The show will be at NPAT, Resorts World Manila. Tickets available at Ticketworld outlets.

Recording Memories

The little one have recently discovered the joy of watching herself on videos. Sounds narcissistic huh? I say not. Maybe she just enjoys hearing her voice and seeing her antics? Anyway, she likes it so much she would even ask me to shoot new ones. We don’t have a video recorder at home but I don’t think we would scout for a Flip or canon camcorders anytime soon. We don’t have the budget for that now. But I am using my phone, the iPod or Padme when recording. These work well in capturing moments anyway.

I should remind myself to organize the videos soon.


Tuesday, August 02, 2011

We were supposed to go to the school today but classes were suspended as early as 5am. Yes I was still awake to wait for that announcement. I knew it was coming because the rains did not stop until around 3am. There is no typhoon, as far as I know, based on the news last night. This is just an effect of the monsoon, I think. But there were lightning and thunders after 7am so I am glad the little ones are kept at home. Too bad though because the college students were still sent to school, now the afternoon classes are suspended too.

Stay dry and warm everyone. Do not go out anymore unless it is absolutely necessary.

Box on the Way

I was talking to my sister the other night. She called just to say that they are already packing the box but of course we talked about other stuff too. Anyway, she mentioned about the box with loots for us last month and totally forgot about it. I would have listed the items that K needs but that escaped me too. I was able to “order” a box of bottle Drop-ins, thankfully.

Sadly there is no enough time to go online shopping anymore, the shipment may not make it to their apartment :( I saw the Personal Creations hoodie's and I wish I was able to order the Dora one for K.

She is starting to outgrow the one she currently have so a new one would have been nice. And is it obvious she is at that Dora phase at the moment? Oh well, there’s another chance anyway, as sister and her family are arriving in December, weee!
