Counting the days

As the days go hot here in Oz,, on the other side of the world it is getting cold..  We have no Snow on Christmas, no white Christmas,, but we have a Santa that enjoys the beach during Christmas,,,  I would rather have a warm Christmas than a freezing one... Although I like snow,, we went on a ski vacation  before;  but it was just to much with all the winter gear and it was such an effort walking around..


But this year it would be a different Christmas for my kids because we are going to celebrate it in the Philippines,,, way different from how to celebrate it,, it would be FUN and they would surely enjoy the festivities,, my Hubby and I are looking forward to it...  Enjoy everyone and be safe.....

Travel

I had a birthday lunch the other day with my girlfriends and we  always have good times and good conversation every time we are together,,, issues about Religion,, school, politics , motherhood and travel are among our favourite topics,,,

We all love to travel and we are talking about when we turn senior citizens we would love to travel around Australia, my friend wanted to go on a motorbike , I myself wanted to go on a campervan or Motorhome with hubby ,, I think it is a lot safer than motorbike and more convenient and we can bring our equipments with us ,, we can also get a motorhome warrantyy so assuring us of a good insurance...

But whatever way we wanted to travel ,, I just hope that we can live that dream and enjoy the rest of our lives ,, having fun and and as well as relaxing....

Cheers!!!!

Injection

The cost of living is getting high ,, as some new laws are being implemented and taxes are getting higher,, we cant help but complain about it... But how about the Health System,,??/ it is also getting worse, as we need more health care professionals and the doors are open for qualified overseas professionals , we can only hope that it would be filled up to cope with the growing needs of our society..  There are also Private health funds and the Medicare ,, some are also offering Medicare supplement  in the US dunno if we have that here in Oz .... one of the services that is expensive is the Dental ,which is so costly ,,, that is why I am contemplating in getting a private health fund that covers the dental ...

Talking about health ,, we need to have our needles done before we travel,, that includes the H1N1 (Swine flu) and Typhoid injections, Hepa A and B injections ,, the Swine Flu injection is free but the rest are not,, we are 5 in the family and for sure it will cost a lot,, anyway,, better safe than sorry......

I was never into Twilight ,, my teenage daughter loves it!!! But a month ago I watched the movie Twilight,,,, yeah you might think where on earth  have I've been,,,???  anyway,,, I watched the movie and I liked it ....It was never too late to get into Twilight groove,,, 

so I was  waiting for the next series,,  when New Moon came out,, I went to watched the movie with my daughter,, but during the movie I was asking about names of the character,, anyway ,, now I know who they are ,, ha  ha ha .. 

What caught my attention where the cars that were featured in the movie ,,, in Twilight love all the Cullen's cars ,, its like a promotion ....

They have Volvo , Porsche, mercedes, BMW  they are all good looking cars!!!!! well ,, of course aside from good looking characters ....

As my daughter was busy checking out Jacob's body I was admiring Alice's Porsche!!!!!! Weird???!!!!!

But hey,, where's the Ferrari??? I heard that they would have a Bella "after" car ,, dunno what it meant by "after" car,,, I guess I have to read the book or might as well wait for the movie ,, cant wait to see the car and must have an awesome Ferrari parts   ...

Counting the days

Its a time for Holiday and we havent started with our holiday , my hubby and I are talking about doing another  trip .  We are saying we would like to have a new york vacations  or an Italian holiday,,, it all depends on how good the kids are traveling overseas  and not to forget the budget!!!!

But, it is free to dream and better off dreaming big!!!! Anyway,, it wont be long and we are off on a holiday ,, I needed to book an appointment to our doctor for our travel injection , I still need to buy one more luggage and I would start sorting our clothes to be packed away, This would be my children's first travel overseas ,, I know that they are going t have a culture shock but for sure they will enjoy it!!! 

This year ,, no Christmas decor for me,,, whilst I love Christmas and I love decorating our Christmas tree , I would miss the excitement of decorating it ,, my boy was so eager to have the tree up ,, but I just have to tell him that we will not decorate it this year,,,, so sad ,,,   anyway,, I am hoping that we are going to have a FUN Christmas this year!!!!

Getting Hot

Soon it will be Summer Time here in Oz, but the other day it was evident that summer is coming too quick... We had a 36 scorching  heat the other day !!!!   Too hot that I decided to just go to the mall and keep myself cool.....  and walking around seeing all the Summer collection out already ,, 

It is so tempting to buy a sexy dress for summer, but I need to find a flattering outfit that will camouflage my belly fat  and accentuate my shoulders,,, well I think that my shoulders are my best asset,, at least I have one ,, he he he...

Anyway, aside from eating healthy foods ,, I bulked on Vegetables, fruits and legumes ,, I also make it a point to do a 30 minute workout using my Wii Fitness and Wii Active,,, I enjoy doing it, I can do it anytime of the day in the comfort of my own home,, aside from that my kids also join me while I do my exercise ,, its good for them too,,, I lost 3 kilos already and I am determined to continue and tone up my body , getting ready for my holiday and Summer FUN!!!!

Thinking of what to give

It wont long now and the air of Christmas is coming.. The shopping malls are already decorated and Christmas parties and functions are being booked,,, Christmas sale and other special are being promoted,, Some Aussie would say its too early !!!!! but for me its totally fine,, In my native country, once the "BER" months  started Christmas decors are up !!!I love Christmas it s my favourite holiday !!! I like decorating the Christmas tree and wrapping gifts.... Speaking of Gifts , I am finding a best gift for Braiden,,,  he loves to play computer games and PlayStation 2 , last time when  we went to the shops there was a demo on PlayStation 3   and he tried it ,,, he enjoyed it and asked me to get it for him...


My hubby and I are tossing between PlayStation Portable or playstation 3  , that is why we are researching for it and checking with one is the best , but I reckon whatever we decided to get for him ,, he will enjoy and appreciate it anyway...




Motivated

I am motivated!!!!!! yeah  ,, I must I must I Must....  That is my saying at the moment... 


I badly needed to loose a few pounds....  I've been wanting to do it and I've been very slack ,, but now I have a good reason to loose weight... That is our upcoming holiday ,, This would be my 1st time to go back to my hometown after 8 years,, and during that time I put on weight,, I want to go back home and surprise my family and friends , I wanted to look fabulous and put on my nice clothes on...

It's not only me whose doing it,,, my hubby and my 15 year old daughter are also joining in...
So, when the 1st day of November started ,, we made a pact to eat HEALTHY and do exercises ,,

We are on our 11th day now and we are ecstatic about the result ...  No More JUNK Take away food; no more softdrinks; no more fattening food...
We bulked on Vegetables,  Fish , lean meat , fruits and just drink water..  Straight away , we noticed a big difference  and we are hoping to shred few more pounds.....

My Wii Fit is m best friend at the moment ,,, I make it apoint to exercise everyday and Im having FUN with it......I dont think I need to go to weight loss austin   anymore...  Juts stay home and use my Wii fit

Business alarm


As we get ourselves organize during the holiday season,,,  my hubby is also getting the factory ready for the holiday rush ,, he already allocated the work that's need to be done on December , we have a benchtop business and during December that is when the business is booming... That's good and we are  eager to go on our much anticipated holiday.... So the factory will be closed for 4 weeks and we are relying on our Security Alarm System monitoring to make sure that the business is properly monitored..  We have no problems with our business alarms and they are doing a good job... What we like about having a security alarm is that whenever there is a problem they are quick to respond and they always get in touch with my hubby to confirm , one time the alarm went off and it was already midnight ,, they called us and informed us about it,, security people were  dispatched and good thing it was a false alarm.... they have  a 24 hour service by trained professionals..
It is such a relief to know that there is someone who can rely on to, especially when you have a business ,, it is a MUST to have business alarms 
 Through these monitoring centers, my  business can access a full range of advanced security solutions, including electronic access control, fire and life safety, intrusion detection, critical conditions (flood, temperature) and security management (guard tours, remote video management, video/alarm verification). 
So we are have no complaints at all and we have a peace of mind knowing  our business is being monitored .....  Day and night......

Travel Time


Time flies and 6 weeks from now we are going on our long awaited holiday..  Its been 8 years since I last visited my homeland the Philippines and I am excited to take the kids with me ,, we are going to Hong Kong first for 4 days , just to take the kids to HK Disneyland and do some shopping,, I am eager to start packing my stuff,, but I noticed that I needed one more luggage, since we are going on a long holiday and shopping trip in HongKong ,, and when I think of luggage the first thing that comes in my mind is Samsonite luggage   ,, its been here for ages and they have a special on luggage,, what I like about it is  easy to  manoeuvre,, light weight,, hey we don't want  it to be bulky and heavy,,, ,, good size and heaps of storage , functional and  must have a good security of course!!!


So I found one that I really liked The Samsonite 300 Series in black and plan to look around for more best offer,, but definitely gonna get a Samsonite,,,  Durable and tested!!!!

Business

Its going to be 4 years now since we bought the benchtop business from my hubby's friend,, the economy is slowly picking up ... It was terrible the last 6 months due to the recession and high interest rate,, thank goodness that it is picking up and getting busy , during  the coming holiday season,, there are lots of things that needed to be looked after when handling a business,, all the equipments should be in good working condition, having safety products    good relationship with the workers and a rapport with the customers and dealers,,, although I sometimes go to the factory to help our secretary to do some filing and general office work , my hubby  is the one running the business,, he is good at it and knows how to deal with people.

Now that he is busy,, he  leaves the house early and comes home late and I make sure that hubby is looked after ,, that is the only way I can help him to look after the kids, the house and him...

Aside from the business,, we are also going on a holiday this Christmas time and another big project is coming up ,, building our house,, so for sure Hubby will be stressed out all through the coming year but hopefully everything will run smoothly and no added stress....

Love his version

My favorite performance by Stan Walker contestant om Australian Idol...


Love this version of Miley Cyrus song...

Check it out he is awesome!!!!!
