Basic Wine Stuff

Wine is used for drinking, tasting, collecting, cooking, and in religious ceremonies. It is becoming more and more popular, and even has been reported to help with your health.

Let's Talk About Cars

Autos are a means of getting from one place to another, a place in themselves, a right of passage, a status symbol, a monthly payment, and a mouth to feed.

Which one to choose?

Yesterday, I was contemplating of whether to get the Starbucks 2009 Planner or the Belle de Jour 2009 Power Planner. I was noting points of which one to get before I can decide.

Starbucks Planner
• I haven’t seen it.
• It’ll be my third planner from them, if ever.
• I need to consume 20+ fraps before I can get it, which means I need to spend roughly 3k to get it.

Belle de Jour Planner
• First time to have one, if ever
• I like the cover
• Cost is only P598

But then again, hubby reminded me of my supposedly diet because of what I posted here. So, he advised me to get the Belle de Jour. When I heard the go signal, I immediately reserved one.

Yehey! I am so excited to hold my very first Belle de Jour. Be an IT girl too!

In borderline

Our company’s annual PE results were released yesterday. I knew there was something wrong with my results right there and then when our nurse called me up and told me to go to the clinic. I never thought that mine was something serious – that is based on how I perceived what the doctor told me. I need to strictly go on a diet, not because I’m getting bigger but because I’m already in the border line. I am in the border line of my uric acid count and sugar level count. Not to count, they already saw kidney stones forming. I immediately texted hubby and told him “I’m dying!” Harharhar!

I need to cut my sweets. I need to cut my protein in-take. I need to drink water, water and more water!

I just need to strictly follow the diet advised to me just for two months so that I can enjoy the holiday. This is killing me already, LOL!

He's affected?

We were watching Stuart Little 2 last night and the first few scenes makes Joshua thrilled. He makes kwento of what happened as if we weren't there watching it. Hehehe!

Everything changed when he saw Margalo which he calls "Ming-ming too." I'm telling you, he's addicted to Wonderpets that he calls animals that looks almost like Ming-ming as "Ming-ming too." Fast forward, he started crying when Falcon gets Margalo. I heard him saying "Wawa Ming-ming too!" (poor Ming-ming too), and hubby and I started to giggle. Few minutes after, I saw tears in his eyes. He really was crying. After the movie, he was still sobbing until he falls asleep.

Did he understand the story? Did he really got affected with Margalo? Oh my, he's really a big boy, don't you think?

Fall 2008 TV: dNeero-ites want to know

Many, many good questions from dNeero-ites about TV shows and viewing habits ... '24', House, genre, time, hi-def ... we'll do more in future convos.

To send him or not

In five months time, the little boy will turn three. I guess it's not too early but I'm already contemplating whether to send him to school or not next year. See, he's been turning into a brat. He wails everytime we don't give in to what he wants. He has been the boss everytime we are home. He does it too when we are out.

Now, I was thinking of sending him to school. I'm thinking he needs playmates. He needs to learn how to socialize. Maybe, that could change his attitude. I'm hoping...

The schools that I've been shortlisting are:
1. OB Montessori Las Piñas
2. San Beda College Alabang
3. PAREF Southridge
4. ICA Parañaque.

I need to start inquiring about how much the tuition fee ranges. I need to prepare our finances for next year.

Hubby says if we can afford it, I say we will afford it.

Positive thinking don't you think? Yes, I'll do whatever to send him to a good school. That's all I can afford.

Tatlong Dekada

I pray the weather cooperates tomorrow.

We will be at Luneta Grandstand to celebrate three decades of God's faithfulness to His people. Join us as we celebrate JIL 30th anniversary.
