Tie My Shoes

I was really surprised that Jadon can actually recite this rhyme. I would have wanted to grab the credit and say that it was the fruit of teaching him.

But the truth is, it's the result of having watched the same Barney episode over and over until he memorized everything said in it. He would pick a certain CD and view it for one week. Soon, you would hear him say the script ahead of the characters. His current fave is Dora the Explorer. I can hear him count in Spanish, and say sube when he's climbing and abre when he wants to open something.

F is Fragrance

For Me.

Which I need right now. My CK One is almost empty. Same goes with my Davidoff Cool Waters For Women and Alfred Sung Jewel. The reason why I was really REALLY excited to go to Hong Kong last September was that I would be able to shop for perfumes cheaply. But then, I became devastated to learn that the prices were not that low anymore.

So, I would either go to the Duty Free Shop or shop in the internet through ShopWiki. ShopWiki would find me the stores and then i can compare their prices. Isn't that great? I would not waste my time and energy going from store to store. And more importantly, I would have the best prices :)

I am quite undecided yet on what to buy. But, definitely, I want the scent of jasmine. Now, should I go for a newer perfume such as Lancôme Magnifique or go with the Classic Chanel No. 5?

What do you think?

Room Renovations

We have been living in our "new" house for almost two years and I am thinking of redecorating or re-designing some of our rooms. But it would take so much of my time, so I would start with one room at a time.

First is the Bedroom. It's the only room that we occupy everyday.

I am thinking of adding more bedroom furniture. The room is almost empty with just the bed at the center. A dresser would greatly help me when I want to fix myself before getting out of the house. I do not have to go to the bathroom just to see if I am all properly made up.

Another bedroom furniture that I would like to have is a platform bed. It would be very convenient for us since we are co-sleeping with our kid (which would soon become plural hehehe). My son is a restless sleeper and likes to sleep at the edge of the bed. Having a platform bed would definitely ease my worries of him falling hard from the bed.

I also want to buy some nightstands or night lamps for our room. Both hubby and son cannot sleep with the lights on. But I am a late sleeper and I sometimes take my paperwork home. I think the lamps would solve my dilemma :)

Although it may not be considered a bedroom furniture, I would put a bookshelf in the room. I like it when the book I want to read is just within my reach.

I think I have everything that I need for a new bedroom. Now, what style do I want? A Country-style bedroom or an Italian bedroom? What do you think?

LP : Pilak

Ito ang aking pinakatatanging pilak. Regalo ito sa akin ng aking kabiyak noong nakaraang kaarawan ko. Sana ay sa paglipas ng panahon, mananatili itong matibay upang aking maipapamana sa aking anak. Ito ang aking Pilak sa Litratong Pinoy.

This is my cherished silver. It was given as a birthday gift by my husband. I hope that its value would remain unchage so I can leave it to my descendant. This is my Silver for Litratong Pinoy.

Road Rant

We were running late this morning. After dropping off hubby, I drove our car. What a manic road full of crazy drivers! There were men-at-work signs in every street I passed.

Selfish bus and jeepney drivers were already expected at the corner of Buendia Ave. and Donada St. They would stop and wait for passengers while other cars were waiting to pass through. So, I was there waiting for about 3 minutes for an opportunity to turn right.

At the end of Donada lies Vito Cruz St. which used to be a one-way street, then changed into two-way when the new mayor assumed the post. But currently, due to repairs being done, it is a one-lane-but-two-way street.

Then I reached Adriatico and turned left toward Leveriza. To the best of my knowledge, it is a one-way street. But then, the pedicab drivers have no respect to one-way streets and they get angry at you for "obstructing" their way. Thus, while I was trying to avoid the pedicab in front me, the one at my rear was tapping the car and shouting, threatening and ordering me to move on.

Anyway, I was happy to reach San Andres St. And since there was no sign of NRTOR, turning right at Mabini would be easy. But this eff-ing cab cuing at the middle of the street went to the right lane and waited for the green light because it was not turning right! I could not pass through. Ugh! I am a zillion minutes late for work!

After what seemed to be two hours, I was finally at the parking lot and saw this:

Thank God, today is the last day of the week!

And that is why I support, albeit passively, a gunless society!

After a brief discussion, hubby and i decided that it was time for me to have my own handy digital camera. We found that this Olympus model would suit my lifestyle best. It is shockproof, crushproof and waterproof, which thankfully would not mind my tendency to drop things, especially in the water. And it is also ready-to-click, unlike hubby's Canon EOS which never fails to test my patience whether as the subject or the one taking the picture.

My camera (oooh, i love that sound!) arrived just this Monday. And today, while i was consuming my last remaining minutes of lunch break surfing the net, i happened to read meeya's entry on Litratong Pinoy. And though i have not yet been officially accepted as a member, i will try to participate in its Thursday events. Yippeeee!

Is it providence?
