Project 366 | Week 4

No classes. So another mundane day. Well, what a great day to make faces in front of the camera. See?

I always bring my cross stitch stuffs at school, so I can finished at least some while waiting for my daughter.That's 3 hours of work and then I will resume it at home when I'm already free from household chores.

It has been a long time I took a photo of us together. Zits are popping out, its unbearable to see :( 
* Thurs* Its their school's foundation day. They wore their P.E uniform. Went to church for thanksgiving then celebrated family  day after. It was all fun!

After their science fair at school, my in-laws fetched my daughter to attend a wedding. I didn't go, I still have parent duties at school in the afternoon. Glad MIL took photos of my kiddo. She enjoyed swimming with her cousins.

The wedding day! Too bad she wasn't one of the flower girls. They forgot to include her. They let her wear the gown after the ceremony so to get a feel how was it like to be a flower girl. And, she enjoyed it!

The following day they went to Baguio City with the whole clan. Family bonding it was!

 For the closing photo;

a beautiful sunset which I took last month.

Another week passed,
 how was your week?

My Semi-Chaotic World

Or mind perhaps.

It has been a busy week for us in the school. The school held its 9th Foundation Day last Thursday and we also celebrated family day after we went to the church for thanksgiving. We ate there during lunch and played several games too. It was fun!

Then yesterday was their Science fair where kids enjoyed games again and some other stuffs. The raffle draw was held in the afternoon. Oh, boy! Don't have any luck at all. I bought all the tickets but it wasn't my day!

Anyway, I feel sleepy the entire day. I took a nap after I ate lunch and woke up after an hour of sleep. I fell asleep while waiting hubby's message. Then I did some cross stitching with my new pattern.

Tot was not here. I'm missing her. There's no one that keeps me busy the whole day.

That's why maybe I feel uninspired or lacking motivation but I cleaned our room a little to be a tad productive this day.

But still....

There's a lot going on in my mind. Too much to even write it here.

Drinking HappyLemon with a friend. I super love this milk tea. My first time to try it and I like it very much. And yes, real happiness is when having a long talk with this healthy drink!

Not so Good Tuesday

Something bad happened earlier this day.

Well, my lunatic Uncle (err I don't even want to call him Uncle anymore) created a terrible scene right after we left for school. I only have known it upon arrival from school when Mom told me what transpired. Mom has been calling me on  my other number but too bad I left it at home. She said this mad greedy creature (sorry for the terms) started to throw things (whatever he sees around him) around. The chickens of my dad and anything! Then because he's mute and deaf, he talked (but only sound there is to be heard) furiously at Mom who at that time doing household chores.

Money. That's the root of it. He's the kind who gets mad and crazy when he runs out of money to spend. He doesn't work nor helping my grandfather at the farm to be able to obtain money. Blame it to whoever spoiled him that's why he became like that, ever thirsty of money but too lazy to work for it.


What Mom did was called the police and they went to the police station to formally file a complaint against him. Everybody in the family (even his dad and other siblings) wants him in jail if possible. But the police told them to wait and see if he do it again, and if he does its the time they will put him to jail.

All of us are scared and I know we couldn't sleep soundly. He is the kind who can really kill someone. There are several similar instances before that's why we all wish him bad luck.

Bad as it may sound, but people like him do not deserve to be living anymore. Of all good people who are dying, why not him who is so bad?

God, forgive for saying these things.

Almost Done

I am almost done with my first set of project in cross stitching. I made a pair of Wednesday Tulips, I have thought if it is only one, it wouldn't be nice to look at. This is not big nor too small, I just forgot to make the  cloth more bigger so the flowers will look bigger too. 

But anyways, tomorrow it will all be finished. I ran out of DMC that's why I couldn't finish them tonight. Then maybe will bring them to the frameshop also tomorrow.

Project 366 | Week 3


I let my kiddo to bath herself before going to school. It is always a good start to freshen up, though I'm rushing her because we're going to be late. And it's not a good practice.


This little lady here dress up for no reasons at all. She said she wanted to look pretty "always". So yeah, you are pretty my dear whatever you wear! :)


My schedule to do the laundry. Mr. Sun shine brightly and its a good sign our clothes would be dry up quickly. Those pins need a replacement already, they get broken so easily.


She had fun riding her new bike given by Dad last Christmas.  Tongue out again, she inherited that habit from her Dad. :)


She got hungry after her nap. Made a sandwich and this little lady munched it with gusto.


Time to do some healthy drink this time. Bought half a kilo of strawberries then made a smoothie. What a delicious fruit shake it was, I will make sure to do this again soon.


Photo session again with my kiddo. She's witty enough to project on her own.

It was a great week for us.

How about you?

Living Life with Purpose

OK. So I have thought this account is already approved by Google AdSense. Well, its not. I need to review my blog then resubmit.

Maybe this happened because I  merged my two other blogs here. Probably there are posts there that violated some of the rules.


But please visit Living Life with Purpose to show some support. Thanks!

K-12 Educational Program

I tell you, I scarcely watch tv or read the tabloid. And when I stumble on this article about the K-12  Educational Program, sounds like a dog to me. teehee! But seriously, maybe you will say, why not watch some news so I'd be educated because I appear like I don't know anything at all. Hahaha! But I just DON'T like to watch. Period.

SO yeah, what's this all about then?

The article says K+12 stands for Kinder plus 12 years. And the aim for this program is to fully prepare every students to be more ready and suitable for current needs of today's industries.

The program will necessitate kindergarten, six years of grade school, four years of junior high school (grades 7 to 10), and two years of senior high school (grades 11 to 12).

DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro said, “In 2012, we will begin using the new curriculum for Grade 1 and Grade 7. The curriculum is almost complete for these two levels, and we will soon begin preparing our teachers.

The grade one pupils will be required to go to school for four hours while high school curriculum will be made more “interactive”; based on the “science of everyday life.

What is your say regarding this?

Personally, not bad at all. Because honestly, to uplift again the educational system, it also requires the government agencies concern to make a smart change with its program. And this is all for the future of the students. It's highly competitive now and we need to  walk side by side with it and not behind. Well of course, not all of us can really afford  this new program, but hoping that government will help those less fortunate pupils striving to get a good education. 


My 2012 Horoscope

What's your horoscope for this year?

Mine is here:

Year 2012 Overview

Although many have secretly been dreading the arrival of 2012, you've personally been looking forward to it. That's because karmic taskmaster Saturn has been doing a number on your life over the past two-plus years. Relationship lessons have been relentless throughout this time. If you haven't made important decisions about where to commit - and where to quit - these are your final months to do so. Don't wait another 30 years to get clear on what you truly want in your relationships. You'll be in the throes of Saturn's testing until October, when it moves into your neighboring sign, Scorpio. Consider this your final exam!
Jupiter will be in its fellow Venus-ruled sign of Taurus, making a magical aspect to your stars for a good portion of 2012. Jupiter's lucky presence in your sector of sexuality, transformation and other people's money brings every material and emotional resource you could ever want or need. You'll have no problem attracting the proper support to fund your current or future projects. This is also the year for coming into your true power by transforming all the dead weight of your past. Change looks good on you, Libra. You've been shedding layers of karma, and now you're about to reap the wonders of renewal.
World travel beckons in 2012, so pack your bags! The spring-summer eclipse patterns activate your travel sector in May and June, and Venus is in your travel sector between April and August. During the retrograde phase in May and June, you may want to be lay low or avoid more intricate itineraries. Mars will be spending the entire first half of the year in your sector of sleep, unconscious processes and dreams. This could create some inner turbulence (if not all-out insomnia) if you don't give yourself enough expressive and physical outlets. As always, it's about finding balance, Libra.

Year 2012 Romantic

Uranus, the planet of unexpected surprise, continues to play tricks on your relationship sector in 2012. The method to all this madness is to persuade you to think outside the box about dating, mating and relating. Co-dependence is set to become a thing of the past for you, as the planets insist you find your inner warrior and forge ahead on a new path of individuality and freedom. This doesn't mean you have to be alone, nor will you; in fact, this could be one of the most rewarding relationship cycles of your entire life, if you play your cards right. With Saturn continuing to exert its grave, but wise influence over your chart until October, relationships are nothing to take lightly. No more flirting just to see if you're liked. If you're in it, you've got to back up all your subtle innuendo with substance!
You can expect to forge a better sense of grounding in who you really are, which can only translate into more passionate relationships. With Saturn helping improve your integrity over the past few years, you have a clear sense of self and boundaries. It's finally become easier for you to say no without worrying so much about disappointing others. This allows for more authentic relationships and romance to enter your life. And when Saturn leaves your chart in October, you'll be ready to apply all the powerful relationship lessons you've learned over the past two-and-a-half years.
Love may be blind, but you're thankfully about to have one of its veils lifted after February. Neptune, the planet of illusion and delusion, leaves your romance sector after haunting you for several years. Instead of projecting your ideal onto lovers, you'll be more inclined to look for a partner who is your equal. Fancy that!

Project 366 | Week 2

Start of another week at school. We're a tad late because we woke up past 6 already and Sasha's supposed to be at school before seven.  It was a tiring day for her because as soon as she's done with her lunch, she went to bed and taadddaaahhh!! Sleeping with her stuffs and legs opened-wide. That's how she sleep plus the snore. hehehe! She got that from her Daddy.

After napping, my  kiddo would always visit my little niece, her only cousin as of now. She's turning two this year if I'm not mistaken. My daughter's only companion and playmate except when my little Aunt is here for vacation. They would play at the vacant lot beside the house or sometimes at her cousin's house or here.

I went to  town market which is just near at school to buy some foods and things needed in the house. And I saw green mangoes which I love the first time this year. So yes, I bought a kilo plus this shrimp paste. Voila!
Satisfied tummy :)

In the afternoon, I went at the back of the house to check if I can find something worth-capturing. And yes, I saw our dog sitting and staring somewhere. So I took a snapshots of her. Mom said, she's pregnant again for the third time.

We don't have classes. And because it's Friday the 13th we did not dare go out. You know what it could bring, according to superstitions. And so my little girl here did photo session. This one she said, she's going to show a sad face. Which she exactly did.

Yesterday,after my chores outside, I saw this chicken feather on the ground. And because I'm too eager to take pictures of different objects, I tried some shots with it. I guess this one was the best among the many shots of I took. :)

I went to Baguio City-the summer capital of our country to accompany my brother for their seminar at school. Mom doesn't want to go so she obliged me as her substitute. So what can I do but to wake up so early because I need to be there before 8 on the dot. And I was there very early. The weather was cold and good thing I anticipated it  that's why I brought a cardigan that kept me warm. While waiting for my brother, I decided to eat at McDo. I'm not really a coffee drinker, but because its chilly, I ordered longganisa with rice plus coffee to keep me at ease with the weather.

This was at Burnham Park where tourists and local travelers can enjoy riding a boat.

What a week it has been...
How about you?
