I've got a friend whose father in law lives with them;;; her father in law has Alzheimer's Disease and he needs a constant care and loving,, I admire her for doing all the things fro him ; considering that she's got 3 children and her youngest is only 6 months old.. I often ask her how she do it,, but she said she is used to it already,, and she has a genuine love for his father in law,, she said he was really good to her even before he had the disease. We talk about having a break for her probably inquiring a care like a homecare in Napa California , but she said her husband is not keen on putting him in someone else's care and it really doesn't bother her caring for him at all.. She said probably when the time comes that he really need an intense care and she can no longer do it ; then they are open to the idea of a homecare... That is why I always commend her for doing such a good work...

Ipinakilala ko sa inyo si MARTY na Palos o igat,, SUs!!! ayan hinanap ko pa ang translation ng eel,,, Tinawag namin syang Marty kasi sya ay Zebra eel at Marty a yung pangalan ng Zebra sa pelikulang Madagascar na paboritong panoorin ng aking anak na lalaki....
Nakakatuwa po itong palos namin ; sa tuwing umaga ay palagi na lang syan nagtatago sa ilalim ng mga bato, and pag oras naman ng kanyang hapunan na tuwing maka dalawang araw ay saka mo sya makikitang naglalaro at nagpapakitang gilas,, mapapansin mo na sya ay malakas dahil pag pinapakain namin sya ng hipon ay bigla nya itong sasakpawin!!!
Sya po ay mahinay o maamo na palos,,, hindi nya ina atake ang ibang isda at saka meron kaming buhay na mga hipon sa loob ng tangke pero di nya rin yon kinakain,, may gusto nya siguro yung hinimay na hipon ,, ha ha ha.. Kahit siguro maamo sya ay di namin sinubukan na hawakan sya... nagsisiguro at nag iingat lang po kami.
Nakakamangha po syang tignan,, ang mag bata ay tuwangtuwa sa kanya pag sya ay lumabas ng lungga.. mahigit na isang metro na po ang haba nya...
Kinunan ko ito nung isang araw,, habang kami ay naghahapunan ,, nung bigla syang lumabas ay nagpaumanhin ako sa aking pamilya dahil kukunan ko muna si Marty ng biglaan bago sya bumaliksa kanyang lungga,, napatawa na lang ang aking mister dahil sa aking pagdudumali....
Meet our pet Marty the Eel.. we called him Marty because he is a zebra eel and marty is the name of the Zebra from Madagasgar..
He is so fascinating ,, because he would always hide under the rocks and usually comes out at night time for a fee,, we feed him prawns every second night and you would know he is strong , because he just snap at the prawns with enough force...
He is a docile and never hurt any of the fish in the aquarium,, we even have some live shrimps in there ,, but even though he eats prawns he never even try to attack the shrimps... he is just amazing to look at,,, the kids love to see him whenever he is out. He would probably be less than a meter long now... Even though he is docile we never attempted to touch him at all,, we are just being cautious... You never know.....

Yes...my silver VAIO is back.. I had it fixed and reformat;; its been so sluggish and not performing well... Actually Sony VAIO fell short on my expectations!!!! It's been 2 1/2 year only and I always have a trouble with it... I always get a bug considering that I've got a Anti virus software.. It took me ages to download and it just a total disappointment..
I had it fixed and I it came back, I was totally lost with what to do with it.. I forgot to tell the guy not to delete all the programs ,, well it was too late so I don't have a photoshop anymore that is why I cannot even put a watermark on my pics... My sis from overseas got the disc I haven't bought a new Photoshop for Mac yet ,, its expensive so I have to wait for a little while...
So here is my baby silver,, that is why I just installed some educational games for my son so that he can use this instead.. Wondering why I dont want to use it??? Its because I switched to a MAC!!!!!!! and I'm LOVING it!!!!!!! This Ibook belongs to my teenage daughter and she is loving it too.. I'll post my gorgeous MAC next time....
Whooo.. what a drastic change of weather,, last weekend we were juts having a great warm day... Today we are back wearing our jackets ....
I love the blogs of these people and I’m glad to pass this award onto them! All they need to do is to leave the following message on their post when they pass the award on to their chosen eight bloggers.
They all are charmed with the blogs, where in the majority of its aims are to show the marvels and to do friendship; there are persons who are not interested when we give them a prize and then they help to cut these bows; do we want that they are cut or that they propagate? Then let’s try to give more attention to them! So with this prize we must deliver it to 8 bloggers that in turn must make the same thing and put this.

Our business is settling well in to our new place.. Although there are still things to organize and arrange in the new office; we are slowly and surely making some progress; making sure that the office will look professional. We’ve got a reasonable space to showcase a product.. My husband is contemplating on placing a plasma TV on the wall and he said it would be nice to have the best 5.25 inch in wall speakers ; that would set up the look of the showroom…. And I was thinking that it would be amazing and eye catching to have a focal point in the room… That is why the other day; we are looking for a TV and an in wall speaker too. Since we’ve got a blank wall it would be nice to have the TV and the speaker to be mounted on the wall.
NGEE!!!!!! I used to eat these White Rabbit when I was still in the Philippines!!!!! It is Yumm.... Be careful guys!!!
News from Yahoo7
Australia's food regulator is testing imported sweets that may contain traces of a toxic chemical linked to several deaths in China.
The illegal additive melamine has been found in Chinese milk formula, believed to be responsible for 53,000 babies falling ill and four of them dying.
Food Standards Australia and New Zealand said no Chinese milk products had been imported but other food, such as lollies, needed testing.
Any products found to be unsafe would be recalled, it said.
"The good news is that no Chinese infant formula products are imported here, nor any major mainstream milk products," spokeswoman Lydia Buchtmann told ABC Radio on Tuesday.
"Now (we need) to look at some of the smaller products that may have come into smaller Asian shops such as lollies ... that have a small quantity of milk product.
"We are just making sure that none of the contaminated ingredients have ended up in some of those smaller products.

My Weekend Snapshots
We enjoyed our weekend!!! We spent our weekend at Ettalong Beach Resort..
It was a beautiful warm Spring Day in Sydney last weekend 33 C ; what a best way to spend the day is to have a swim in the pool..
We took the kids to Ettalong Beach resort which is 2 hour drive away from our place.. The place that we stayed in was so gorgeous,, overlooking the beach and on the right side is a big pristine pool that kids love to swim...
We stayed there till Sunday mid day.. and on our way home we stopped by to visit the Australian Reptile Park and my kids were quite excited and scared at the same time seeing the reptiles...

It was a beautiful beautiful warm Spring Day last Saturday here in Australia!!!
We knew that its gonna be a warm day 30 C Spring Day, so we decided to take our kids to the city .. We just hopped in the car and my hubby and I were thinking of things to do for the day,, But when we arrived there at Darling Harbour , we saw the PowerHouse Museum ; we haven't been there yet , so we decided to give it a try,, And sure enough ; it was really Great!!! There are heaps of stuff and activities to do inside and the kids can touch and manipulate some of the exhibits.. It was educational as well.. The first thing that we saw was the STEAM TRAIN!!!! Oh MY!!! My Braiden loves TRAINS!!!!!! He was so excited being there... He also enjoyed the Space Exhibition and Transport ..

New Ipod nano ..!!!
For those about to rock, we give you nine amazing colors. But that’s only part of the story. Feel the curved, all-aluminum and glass design and you won’t want to put iPod nano down.
Find your music faster.
It’s even easier to find the song you want to hear. Now you can view your album art in Cover Flow. Or just press and hold the Center button to browse by album or artist. When you find the right song, press the Center button to add it to your on-the-go playlist.
A musical Genius.
Say you’re listening to a song you really like and want to hear other tracks that go great with it. The Genius feature finds the songs in your music library that go great together and makes a Genius Playlist for you. It’s like having your own highly intelligent, personal DJ.
Rock and roll over.
Tilt or turn iPod nano on its side, and you’ll listen, watch, and play in new ways. You can flip through your album art with Cover Flow. Or, vertically speaking, see more albums and artists on the screen at one time.
Shake your groove thing.
Sometimes, we could all use a little unpredictability. And now you can shake to shuffle your music. Just give iPod nano a shake and it shuffles to a different song in your music library. You’ll always be surprised by what you’ll hear.
World’s biggest small screen.
Watching movies, TV shows, and videos is big fun on iPod nano. And the high-resolution picture looks crisp and vivid on the 2-inch widescreen display. So you can always have a little video with you.
Whawww!!! A new Ipod nano.. I just bought an Ipod nano 2 .... Now theres a new Nano.... thats what technology is,, its always changing and updating... I LOVE the new colors!!!!!!

He who is taught to live upon little owes more to his father's wisdom than he who has a great deal left him does to his father's care.

Bronze is any of a broad range of copper alloys, usually with tin as the main additive, but sometimes with other elements such as phosphorus, manganese, aluminum, or silicon. It was particularly significant in antiquity, giving its name to the Bronze Age. "Bronze," in turn, is perhaps ultimately taken from the Persian word "berenj," meaning "brass".
Medieval German saying
