Perfomer in the making

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

I am quite amazed by how much K has bloomed in just a year (I need to blog about that in the main site). I think she's gotten out of her shell and now, she's overcome some of her anxieties that are normal to small kids. She wants to perform (on her birthday) and even asked for an instrument.  Anyway, I asked Teacher She if it would be okay to spare K a few minutes (even just seconds!), and she said it's fine. Gotta record that one!

Apricot Seeds

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

As I was doing my usual internet rounds, I read something about apricot seeds. They say apricot seeds (and almonds, hubby’s favorite nuts) are rich in vitamin B17 or laetrile. I am not sure if I heard B17 before now & its effect on the body so I went ahead and read some more. Well, they say some cancer patients take apricot kernels as an alternative cure (the site I saw where one can find best apricot kernels here isn't claiming anything though). Some eat these seeds also because they say it can prevent cancer too. This is all new to me, I don’t know if I should believe it now. Maybe in the next few years, the veracity of the claims will be all over the news.

Getting ready for Wicked

Monday, January 13, 2014

In less than one month, my friends and I will watch Wicked the Musical. I just finished the book version and knowing now how the story goes, I got more excited to watch it.


I must admit that before reading the book, the only thing I know about the musical is the song Defying Gravity and the raves I hear & read from people who’ve already seen it abroad. I was planning to start listening to the songs after reading but I decided to continue my Wicked journey by reading the second book instead. I will just let the musical surprise me with the songs. ;)

New Year, New Renovations

Saturday, January 11, 2014

For some families, the new year means making some changes in and around the house too. Imagine the amount of push-pull knobs purchased online and in-stores at the beginning of the year, not to mention other stuff needed for minor and/or major renovations? Since we just moved before the holidays, we’re not doing the same for now *insert sigh of relief here* We didn’t even have to spend for cleaning materials yet because we still have stocks.

How about you? What are your plans for your house this month and in the coming months?

Happy New Year!

Happy new year everyone! May this year be better than 2013 for you and for me. Let us all continue to be a blessing to others.
