Barbie Learn with Me Letter Book

RJ received this Barbie Learn with Me Letter Book from my SIL who is also her godmother as Christmas gift four years ago. I was glad because she was eyeing this letter book the store but we can’t afford to buy it at that time.


It’s an electronic spelling tablet that recognizes what you spell. Just touch the letter keys to learn and practice spelling. The spelled words appear on the screen. It will prompt you if you misspelled the words and would say “great” or “that’s right” if you spelled the words correctly. Until now this letter book  is  working and still as good as new…a great educational toy for your toddlers and preschoolers.

Can’t Get Enough of Dozy

I have bragged about Dozy last March but now that GT girls are talking about their gadgets to die for, then I would love to brag again about it. By the way, Dozy is my latest netbook. It’s an Asus 1215T 12inch netbook powered by an AMD V105 1.2Ghz. processor.

I acquired it last Month and will be paying for it a dozen months at zero interest thus, the name Dozy. It may not be the best gadget/ netbook there is but with its very affordable prize and the following specifications, it is indeed a great find.

Operating System- Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium
Display- 12.1? LED backlit WXGA+ (1440×900) Screen
CPU- AMD V105 (Single Core; 1.2GHz) Processor
Chipset- RS880M/SB710M (with embedded graphic HD4250)
Memory- DDR3, 2 x SO-DIMM, 2GB
Storage- 2.5? SATA 250GB/320GB HDD
Wireless Data Network- WLAN 802.11 b/g/n@2.4GHz
Bluetooth V3.0 + HS(Optional)
Camera- 0.3 M Pixel Camera
Audio- Hi-Definition Audio CODEC
Interface- 1 x VGA Connector
3 x USB 2.0
1 x LAN RJ-45
1 x HDMI
2 x Audio Jack (Headphone/Mic-In)
1 x Card Reader : SD/ SDHC/ MMC
Dimensions – 29.6 x 20.3 x 3.8 cm (WxDxH)
Weight- 1.45 Kgs (w/ 6cell battery)

It is with me wherever I go because it’s so handy. It does most of the tasks for me that is why I purchased an external keyboard and mouse so it won’t get exhausted easily. I am afraid that it might not meet my three-year service expectation and would leave me earlier if I do so. And oh, have I mentioned that it’s so sexy with its glossy red color? I can’t get enough of Dozy. I love it very much!

Coolest Mom on Earth

I am going around about what to give my Mom this Mother’s Day. I became a good mother because of her. She instilled good values that served as my guide and led me to be a great Mother that I am and will be to RJ. And for that, I want to give her a special gift this Mother’s Day to show my appreciation and recognition for all the things she has done for me and my siblings.

Mom is the best mother one can have. She’s a good listener and very open-minded. We can share with her problems about money, kids, partners and even the very personal ones. Would you believe she gave me two sexy underwears before I get married? It’s not the usual wedding gifts mothers give to their daughters but it is Mom’s unique way of saying, “Hey, you can count on me about anything and everything.” Whenever we do something wrong, she doesn’t get upset. Instead, she is trying to help us in the most responsible and fairest way as possible. She is the coolest Mom on Earth!

Yes, all mothers brought children to this world but not all accepted the responsibilities that came along with it. All mothers provide their children with love and care but not all are willing to give up their career, their pleasures and full time like what Mom did. All mothers play and listen to their children but not all are as cool as my Mom. If there’s one best thing I have learned from her, it is how to become the best mother…that is why she deserves something special. Any gift suggestion?

Two Piece, Here I Come

I started to drink tea again the other day to boost my metabolism. As we all know, the faster the metabolism is, the easier we can lose weight. Yes, I need to get rid of those fats now…as in now! So, why do I need to lose weight faster? Aside of course for health reasons (I easily get tired these days), we will be having a family swimming in two weeks and I want to use my two piece swimsuit. Sadly, it doesn’t fit me anymore. Yes, I can buy a new pair of my size now but it won’t make me feel and look any better.

Every time I see this picture of mine in two piece, I can’t help but just say “those were the days where I can still flaunt my body.” If only I could turn back the time.

taken one and a half year ago…

Taking weight loss pills have crossed my mind many times but I am afraid of the possible side effects. There are times I see positive diet pills reviews, abdominal cuts reviews, etc, and nearly get convinced but still the fear inside me prevails. I am not closing my doors though. Maybe if someone close to me could attest that the brand he or she had really burnt his/her fat and curbed the sugar cravings, then I can try it for a month or two. Do I sound desperate? Maybe I am but it is better to take those pills than to undergo those knives.

As for now, I will just be contented with my tea and hopeful to shake off even an inch on my flab and look good again. Two piece, here I come!

Hidden Paradise in the City

We always pass by UP-AyalaLand Technohub every time we go somewhere in Quezon City. I thought it was just a place for Business Outsourcing Companies (BPO) where we can only see offices and buildings. Little did I know that there are also restaurants and coffee shops inside the compound.

Behind the big buildings are lush greens.

It is like a hidden paradise in the city…a great place for the group or family to hang-out.
