Kristen Two-timed Rob!

Friday, July 27, 2012

Just last week, I read the news that Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson were already living-in together. Yet today, news have broke out that Rob moved-out without looking back. This is after Kristen was caught two-timing with her Snow White and the Huntsmen director Rupert Sanders, who is married with two kids.

Yesterday, Kristen apologized profusely for her indiscretion saying that she loves Rob so much and she respects him. I say, if you love and respect a person, you will ignore all temptations no matter what.

Therefore, I am Team Rob in this issue. You deserve a better girl, man!

Catering Business?

Are you planning to put up a new catering business and now canvassing with catering equipment suppliers? Maybe you will take some unsolicited advice from me. We used to do it about five years ago. We still do now it but only for close friends and family since we still have the equipment. Anyway, they say anything about food is a lucrative business. For me, that is true. Finding clients, especially if you have wide network already, is easy. Keeping you products fresh and of highest quality plus people management can be quite challenging. So I suggest you focus on these matters first before anything else and I think you will succeed.

My friends are volunteers of this group.

So I am posting this project, because this is the only way I know how – disseminate information. Go ahead and plan your shopping spree (for Christmas perhaps?) and keep the Ulingan kids in your mind when you do. Thanks a lot! :)

Haagen-Dazs is saying goodbye to PHL

Thursday, July 12, 2012


Häagen-Dazs, the brand name from New York and the one that produces ice cream, ice cream bars, ice cream cakes, sorbet and frozen yogurt, is ceasing it’s operations in the Philippines. The branches at SM Mall of Asia and Robinson’s Place Manila already closed down on June 30. The ones in Eastwood Mall and Shangri-la Plaza are set to close by August 31 this year.

Cigars as Gift

A colleague is celebrating his birthday soon and I am thinking of what gift to give. What do you give someone who seems to have everything? In cases like this, I usually resort to consumable gifts, because then I will be sure that the receiver will like and use my gift. My colleague enjoys branded cigars the same way he loves his coffee in the morning. I once saw a box of Dutch Master at the mall and I think it will make an excellent gift. Yeah, problem solved. :)

Avocado craving satisfied, for now :)

Tuesday, July 10, 2012


I've been seeing avocado posts in Instagram and Facebook by friends that I started cravings avocadoes myself. I asked Ane to buy me from the supermarket last Saturday but he didn’t find any. Next resort? I told mom to bring me some if they were coming over the next day. They did! And with them are my precious avocadoes :) Maybe I’ll look for some more this coming weekend because my palate is still craving :)

To the Storage

My friend and her family are moving to another apartment. They needed to move to another place much closer to where the kids go to school. It is more practical and less tiring for their children. The downside however is that the new place is smaller than their current abode. Thus they need to move some of their stuff to a storage facility. Some of the items are fragile so I suggested foam rolls to protect their things. I got the idea while watching Storage Wars, hehe. Sometimes watching tv can be an advantage ;p

Fifty Shades of Grey

Monday, July 09, 2012


Yes, I joined the bandwagon and finished all three books. It started out as curiosity, turned disgust, to wanting to hug Grey for all that he went through. I do not consider this trilogy a work of art. I even found it trashy  and badly-written. I think the author could have used a wider vocabulary because I got tired reading the same adjectives over and over again. I honestly skimmed half the entire trilogy because I never cared about how sexually driven Christian and Ana have been (seriously, where do they get all that energy, huh?). Good thing I didn’t have to buy the paperback version, else I will just throw them out anyway.

What made me finish it despite what I just said? I wanted to understand why Grey became the man that was portrayed in the story. I wanted to look into his mind and his past. And the author did not disappoint on that part, IMO. However, this is not something that I will read again in the future unlike all the other books that I really like.

Dream house

You know what I dream of having in our (future) house? I would really love a corner fireplace with a nice lamp and cozy lounge chair where I can spend chilly nights reading books. Nice isn’t it? But we are living in a tropical country where it is almost always hot even at nights. During the rainy season, it doesn’t get too cold at nights too. Unless we live in the mountains, maybe that’s possible. Or maybe when we migrate to a country where there’s winter season. oh well. :)

Sweet Proposal

Sunday, July 08, 2012

Have you seen this? Go watch it until the end.

This is by far the sweetest marriage proposal I have ever seen. I love that family and friends all worked together to make it possible. I love how they kept waving their arms until the girl said Yes. I love everything about this :)

Clippies for my princesses

Thursday, July 05, 2012

These arrived a few days ago:


Aren't these clippies cute? I think I went overboard when I was ordering these pretty clips from Dainty Ashley :) I think I almost ordered the whole Meg and Sandy collection. Hoarding much? I just could not resist. And this after I ordered a bunch of headbands too. Anything for my precious girls :)

Follow the link above if you would like to buy for your little ones too! ;)
