Change of season

Today is quite a cold day ,, cold breeze in the morning ,, this is what most of the people had been waiting for here in OZ ,, a crisp morning and a cold night..... It had been unusually hot the past few weeks and to think that we are almost halfway through Autumn ,, it was an extended Summer for us...




But, today I have to organize the kids wardrobe.... took the winter clothes out of the boxes and vacuum sealed bags .. Took out most of the summer clothes and check out the sizes,,, placed the clothes that I know that wont fit them next year in plastic bag and I will have to get some shipping boxes so I can send send my kids pre loved clothes and toys to my relatives overseas.. I usually send them overseas knowing that I have cousins who have small children and they would appreciate it so much.. I am happy to give it to them instead of selling toys on Ebay or doing a garage sale ...

But , Im not yet finished and for sure it will take me 2 days to organize everything ,, so I will be busy umapcking and packing ......

Finding a gift

As I walked around the shops I cant help but noticing all the SALE that is happening all over .. The good thing about it , is that almost all of the things on SALE are for women especially for MOTHERS ,,,, ahhh don't you just love Mothers Day,, there are also special packages available on special prices... So I think this is one of the best time to buy things from Perfumes, best eye cream for wrinkles , Lingerie, Make up, Kitchen gadget, jewelries and all sort of stuff....


So what I did was to go window shopping and find out which one do I like and make a wish list at home!!!!!!!
Yupp Give the kids and hubby ideas on what I like!!!
I was eyeing on some of those nail stuff,, maybe OPI nail polish kit..... or a Jag watch... so kids read this ok...... hehehe

Surprise


What a pleasant surprise as my hubby came home the other day with a bouquet of flowers,, Tulips and pink roses ..

Every now and then he would have surprise for me....

I was cooking dinner when he came home,, we was suppose to have a visitor that night, my hubby's old friend from primary but the last minute he canceled because of unexpected commitment,, hubby just rung up around 3 pm to tell me his friend cannot come,, after all those running around the places to organise dinner.... that is why hubby came home with flowers for my effort... Good on yah Love!!!!!!

Anyway ,, last Saturday ,, we have a visitor ,, another friend of his , he came with his wife and a kid and it was good to catch up on him ,, finding out that he is again studying and this time as a lawyer,,, he is working in the morning and studying at night,,, We are happy to hear that he is trying to pursue a good career.. he would not have a hard time finding a job he can use a Legal job search....

Anyway , It was a good night and a good dinner,, and this would not be the last dinner for us....



New Teen Idol

Its all about Justin Bieber!!!!! I would hear a lilltle bit about him from my teenage daughter but I really doesnt know who he is,,,

And after todday incident here in Sydney ,, Its one of the top news on TV...

Find out here....


News from Yahoo7 check out the site
Biebermania has hit Australia hard, and probably ruptured a few eardrums in the process.

Girls - and a few boys - aged from six to 16 screamed, laughed and cried as they caught a glimpse of the Canadian pop sensation during his appearance on the Seven Network's Sunrise program.

But the morning was not without high drama.

His scheduled open air three-song appearance had to be called off by police concerned about the safety of thousands of tweenage girls who had camped out overnight at the planned venue in The Rocks, the historic CBD enclave on Sydney Harbour.

But the heartbroken, tear-streaked fans should have trusted in Bieber.

"I don't cancel," the 16-year-old tweeted.

"I love my fans...I love it here in Australia...and I want to sing."

Bieber had been scheduled to perform at the Overseas Passenger Terminal at 7.40am (AEST).

But mass hysteria quickly descended into chaos when 5,000 star-struck teenagers had already arrived at the venue before dawn, forcing police to cancel the gig about 6am.

Network Seven's Sunrise weather presenter Grant Denyer said they had hired the "best security you could imagine", but they were concerned that it might not be enough.

"We were expecting this to be the biggest concert we ever had, but we just couldn't have foreseen this scale," Denyer told AAP.

"Some girls were collapsing at the front... the last thing we wanted was for someone to be hurt or injured... and we just had to make the call."

Police defended the organisers, saying everyone had been prepared for the crowds - just not for the hyped-up youngsters ignoring their instructions.

"They wouldn't listen to our directions, so hence they left us with no option," Deputy Commissioner Dave Owens told reporters, adding it was a concern that so many youngsters were out at night without their parents.

Several girls were treated at the scene, but eight, aged 12 to 16, had to be taken to hospital.

While one had fractured her knee cap, most were being treated for hyperventilation, or "getting worked up", a NSW Ambulance spokesman said.


Yuppp... now he would be on every news,, just dont know if his popularity will remain the same...

Anyway,, cheers to him...... got to check on the site offering a good wholesale insurance ...
Hope the girls who were hurt are doing fine.....

Not Cheap

As I get hooked into fashion and make up via style and make up gurus in Youtube ,, they give good tips and tricks and they try different brands and give their own reviews about a particular brand,, One thing that I found out is that we here in Oz are being ripped off ,, The prices of beauty products here are ridiculously high ,, way too high,, for example a Revlon Photo ready foundation cost around 35 AUD but in US it cost around 13 USD and they even have offer from other stores buy one take one!!!!! OMG... what a big difference!!!!


Everything here is expensive in compare to America,, that's is why if I find something that I like I look around the net first and find out how much it is and order it online ,, even with the shipping fee it is still cheaper...

I am looking for the best anti wrinkle cream online and checking out some reviews about it and ready to order ....
That is why whenever they say drugstore products in US they are the affordable make up stuff,, but here they are still dear.... I better off buying the expensive brands since they cost the same.. like example I bought the Revlon foundation and the MAC foundation which is 35 buck,, a dollar difference,,, Come on!!!!!! Now I now where to get it and which one is to be avoided .. Thanks to all the gurus ........ I need to be a smart buyer here....

Respect ........

Today is ANZAC day and the whole country commemorates this solemn day to all those who died and served in the war......


Respect ...................... no need to say more.....

Our old pet

When I was younger ,, we used to have a fish pond in our garden,, but wothout a fish pond filter so it was hard to keep the water clean and the fish ended up dead.... That was a long time ago and my parents knew nothing about keeping things alive.... hehee ,, oppps but I'm alive....


Anyway... I am just reminiscing and remembering our old house ,,its been 6 months now since we moved from our house into a rented place. We are going to built a new house that's is why we sold our house and temporarily living into a rented place which is a newly built house ,, so no complaints about this place ,,


When we moved my hubby and I decided to get rid of the massive fish tank at home ,, its just too hard to bring it to this place and move it back again, so we called on an Aquarium place so that they can get the aquarium and keep all the contents.. It was hard to let go because the kids love that aquarium ,, they all have names and we were all attached to me...

Siggghhhhh...... Miss them!!!!! don't know if we are going to set up another tank when our house is finished since it entails a lot of work and cost too much...

Textbooks

My children are back to school after the long weekend and usually they bring their homework back home , they always have text book which school provides them with.

Brings back memories of when I was a young child at school. however , these days when I look through their textbooks I wonder how I use to do it because it all look so difficult to me now.

Especially my eldest daughter who is in Highschool , I cant even understand how different the syllabus is compared to when I was at school !! Do you think the youth of today is smarter than us??? Maybe I can sell textbooks ..

Great Night out


Last night I had a best time of my life reminiscing the good old days and that would be the 80's ,,

We went to the Spandau Ballet concert at Sydney Entertainment Centre with Tears for Fears as their special guest ,, Wow 2 in 1 ,, I love these 2 bands and good thing hubby and I decided to watch this show...

It was really a heart pumping and hip swaying show for me ,, yupppp,, I was able to release the hidden 8-'s dance moves that I kept for a very loooong time ,, their music just magically transformed me back to my teen age years ...


For the info of others .. I was not born here in Oz ,, I grew up in the Philippines. I also saw the beginning of MTV where Madonna, Cindy Lauper and all the 80's band started their fame..
The new wave era as we call back then,, Yes,,, we also have the hair style the High Fringe/ bangs for the girls ,, Bug shoulder pads and weird haircut for boys,,,, and they were BIG back then,,, famous and well loved......

It was the reformation of the Band Spandau Ballet and the original guys are back and they were fantastic,, the guys are amazingly good in spite of that long concert ,, gezz they can still perform!!!! and the crowd went wild with their best song GOLD....

As we looked at the crowd you can would know my hubby and I were murmuring OMG we are almost at the same age group .... errrrr the 35 plus age group .... and as I bitch some may need prototype 37c cream ,, hahaha.... or maybe not just embrace the ageing process .. w ooooo

Time to watch

It's time for Master Chef again!!!! The master chef 2010 had started about few weeks ago and the rating of this show is unbelievably high and no doubt it would be reaching for more viewers...


I watched the 2009 show halfway and since then I was hooked on it,, but this year I would watch it whenever I have time but would love to follow all throughout the end,,, They just started so I'm not logging behind...
The good thing about the show is that it is a quality show and inspirational show,, not only that it shows tips and tricks but also motivate people to do their best and show their natural talent on cooking...
I love to cook for my family and I love to watch and gain some knowledge about certain food and that is what attracts me to the show ,, so for sure I'll be glued on my TV and enjoy the show

I was browsing their website and looking at some of the recipes listed there and they look really yum , so I might grab the recipe and try them too...
But first of all I have to check on the web about hgh reviews and find out how good is it for my well being....

Sweet Smoke.....???


Last December when we were on Holiday in the Philippines , we were looking around for things to give away for my hubbys Uncle,, we were looking at some products like cigar since Uncle likes to smoke cigar every now and then. But aside from Philippine made we were looking for something different ,, I was looking for a certain brand called Swisher Sweets . Heard about these from other people and my hubby and wanted to try it...

Swisher are small cigars made by Bering. Their unique and secret blend of quality tobaccos and special flavorings produces a very mild, sweet tasting, satisfying smoke. Perfect for those who want a delicious quick smoke on their lunch or coffee break.


Hmmm... sounds SWEET....... Wonder if it smells nice too ??? since I dont like the smell of tobacco will there be a difference if it is sweet.. Just wondering.......

Actually ,, we ended up just buying the local Cigar for him,, since we are there and there is not much variety to it ,,but definitely y will watch out for this product....

Our day at the Easter show

Its the last Day of the Sydney Royal Easter show which runs from April 1 -14, It is the largest event here in Australia.

We went there last April 5 Monday which is a public holiday here in Oz and boy oh boy it was jam packed ... With all the events that was happening with thousand of things to do ,, I was already suffering from a head ache ,, good thing I bought a Nurofen ..
The first thing that we did was to go around the livestock area , so the kids can see the Farm animals and went to the Farmyard nursery where the kids can pat and feed the baby animals ,, and my lil Missy was freaking out because there was a hungry lamb that was following us,,, so as we walked around the area my hubby was carrying Lil Miss,, and I was trying to calm her down so that she can pat the animals ,, How can we ever have a Farm animals when we move to an acreage ???? I guess they will get used to it,, even my Big boy was hesitant to pat the animals..
Anyway,, as we moved on we went to the Chooks area, or the poultry which Lil Miss is still unhappy eventhough the chooks and the ducks are in the cages ,, ok ok ,, lets move......
The Dairy Farm,,,, but yeah,, anything with four legs they don't want to appreciate !!!!!!


So one thing that they like was the carnival fair with all the rides for kids and adult and all the carnival games where you can win some big stuffed toys ....

Hubbhy and I enjoyed the Toyota V6 Hilux show and my boy loves the Robosaurus the fire breathing carnivorous monster ,, the main arena was packed that afternoon and we were sitting on the wet grass area,, and suffered from a leg cramps after the show ,, it was choc a block ....!!!


We also visited the Woolworths Fresh Food dome and food lovers walk which you can sample some products and I think you will be all stuffed out after tasting all the food which can make your calorie intake soar high and might need the best diet pills to shed it off....

There are heaps of shows left and right and too much to mention,,, It was worth going there and get entertained ,, a whole day event and loads of FUN!!!!!




But of course the main part is the SHOWBAG!!!! Thousand of them!!!!!! Showbag for kids and adult and when you go inside the Showbag pavilion be ready to go home with more than 4 showbags !!!!!!!!!

But over all it was a good experience for the kids and for us,,, my kids were wonderful and well behaved lil humans and we are quite happy with that even though we spent alot!!!!!!!

My first nail art

I've been busy watching things about beauty, fashion and make up on YOuTube and I learned heaps of tips and tricks on how to look good, feel good and be beautiful.....


Just before I started blogging I just finished watching a series of nail art and nail care from annasbeautysecret's channel ,,,
I just started to grow my nail and I am getting obsessed with nail art !!!!! So whenever I am out I am on a look out for nail stuff and for things to care for my hands and nail ,, and since it is getting cold here in Oz ,, my hand is getting dry and cracked ,, so I badly needed to look after my hands ,, so I guess I have to avoid those harsh hand dryers in the toilet at the mall that can strip away natural oils from my hand....


Here is my first attempt to do a nail art and you can see my hands needed more moisturized!!!!

Loving my cream




As the weather gets cold , this is the time that my skin needs a really good moisturizer.


I've tried heaps of moisturizer and I came to love Olay which is really good for my skin,, especially during winter which I suffer from dry skin on the side of my mouth and cheeks, when I switched from my old brand to Olay ,, I just never looked back, I also started reading about wrinkle cream reviews and finding the best one,, but I would definitely sttick to Olay since my skin is loving it!!!!
I use Total Effects 7 in one anti ageing cream with a hint of foundation in the morning,, it has SPF 15 and just love the little bit of foundation ...
At night time I use the Olay Definity anti ageing which is a tone correcting cream since I have lots of sun spots and freckles ,, hoping that it will illuminate my skin and I also use the eye cream ..
I love the smell of Olay definity !!!!!! and the feel is so light and not greasy .....

There is a new Olay product in the market, the Olay Pro X range and there are lots of buzz about these products and I might try this and find out if its good ,....
