Graduation Party - Our Friend's Daughter Jen

On the last week of July, we were invited to clebrate a graduation of a friend's daughter.  She graduated with  flying colors and it was an ooportunity to inspire the kids.  They are  a Filipino-American family just like us so it was nice meeting new Filipinos from   other places.
 I love the idea of putting up photos since  babyhood.  You can see the progression and growth that an individual has.
 I am so glad that the kids had a blast.  Our daughter usually cling to us but our son is never shy in talking or playing with other kids.
 He can  talk just about to everybody.
 After we  talked to   peeops inside the  venue, we went outside and just had fun with family.
 My husband was making  me laugh whuuke he was taking the photos and I couldn't stop myself from laughing.
 Our son makes funnyposes when photo is being taken so that adds another  leverl of fun for us.
 He even encourage  them to do the same, lol.  Times like this makes me  so happy of my choices in life.  It gives me great satisfaction that we are  raising our children  in the right direction.  I hope that God will continue to bless and guide us to be good parents to our children.

It was a fun  experoence for us. Congratulations Jen and good luck on your college life ahead.  We share the proud feeling that your parents have and  thank you for inspiring our kids to do good in school.  

Four Tips That Could Help You Select a Worktop Refrigerator Intelligently

One type of refrigerator used in restaurants is a worktop refrigerator that can be used to store food near kitchen counters and stoves. Most of these refrigerators offer workspace surfaces that can be used to streamline the process of cooking meals.
Here are four useful tips that could help you select a worktop refrigerator for your restaurant's kitchen intelligently.

Compare Your Worktop Options 

Most of the worktops that are included in worktop refrigerators offer many options that are easy to customize. Some of these options include:

Stainless steel surfaces.

Variable lengths and widths that can help you create a high functioning workspace easily.
Optional surface finishes that can make cleaning your refrigerator's worktop simple.

Compare Dimensions 

Worktop refrigerators have dimensions which vary considerably. Comparing these dimensions can help you choose a worktop refrigerator that fits into your restaurant's kitchen design.

An easy way to compare a worktop refrigerator's dimensions is to compare the following measurements:

The refrigerator's length and width.
The refrigerator's height.
The refrigerator's food storage capacity.

You should be able to find information about these dimensions because most refrigerator manufacturers list these dimensions in their product descriptions.

Compare the Number of Storage Drawers
Most high-quality worktop refrigerators have up to six storage drawers that can be used to store cutlery, cutting boards, flatware and other kitchen items. Most of these storage drawers have large holding capacities that can make storing your restaurant's most important kitchen items simple.

Consider Your Pan Storage Options
One of the most important benefits of owning a worktop refrigerator is its ability to store large pans without cluttering up the rest of your restaurant's kitchen. Most high-quality worktop refrigerators can easily store up to six large pans without causing unwanted clutter. As a result, it is easy to choose a worktop refrigerator that offers the storage capacity needed to store all of your kitchen's pans without creating unwanted clutter.

As you may have noticed, choosing a worktop refrigerator intelligently requires searching for refrigerators that offer the dimensions, worktops and storage options that offer the best value for your restaurant. Be sure to use the advice mentioned here to choose a worktop refrigerator that offers the best value for your restaurant.

Dental Services

Bth of our children has a very brittle set of teeth.  We constantly go to the dentist for filling.  We are wondering why the filling doesn't last very long.  We are thinking of switching dentist but we  are having a hard time doing that since we like the  dentist tat we have now.  They are very nice with us, makes us very comfortable during every visit, and they treat us like friends and not just customers.  
We are not very satisfied with the services they are  rendering  which  is kind bums us.  The one that we used to go to before we went to the current one is really good of what they do.  The problem is their social skills.  It makes me so uncomfortable just by sitting in their office let alone in the  dental room.  The dentist is not friendly at all, they lack  personal and social skills.
 So we are torn.  Do you go to the one that you like because they are nice  even though they are not that good of what they do or do you go to the one who  are  so good of what they do but  lack social skills? I don't know, I was supposed to  reschedule my kids  appointment when they cancelled our appointment but I haven't done it since I am tryingto decide whether or not we  need to switch.
  Photos were taken in May when they both lost tooth.

6 Tips for Better Home Safety

Millions of homeowners are burglarized each year. If you don't want to be one of them, here are just six tips for outsmarting thieves and ensuring the safety of what you love the most.

1. Hide Your Keypad

It's good to flaunt the existence of your home security system; this will make thieves think twice before striking your property. Make sure your keypad isn't visible from any doors or windows, however. This will allow thieves to look for the green light that signifies whether or not the alarm is activated.

2. Brighten Your Yard

Don't let anyone sneak up on you. While the best way to protect yourself is to install flood lights around your property that are triggered by sound and motion, even a few torches or walkway lights are better than nothing. They'll help eliminate dark patches where thieves can lurk.
3. Hide Your Valuables Intelligently
If you like to keep a stack of cash on hand for emergencies, make sure you aren't storing it in your sock drawer or in cans under the sink. Thieves have known about these hiding spots for a long time. A better place would be the top of your child's closet. What thief will scour a child's bedroom for valuables?

4. Get Yourself Protected

Join the neighborhood watch. Ask your friends to periodically drive by your house while you're on vacation. Talk to an alarm monitoring company about the watchdog services they offer. When it comes to burglaries, your best defense is a good offense.

5. Have a Remotely Activated Car Alarm

This can be genuinely life-saving if you ever hear someone breaking into your home in the middle of the night. Simply reach into your nightstand and activate your car alarm, and the thief will be so startled and frightened that they'll flee into the night rather than continuing the burglary.

6. Upgrade Your Locks

It may sound like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised by how many homeowners never bother to upgrade their locks from standard doorknob locks. If you're serious about protecting yourself, your family and your valuables, look into deadbolts or chain locks.

These are just a few tips for increased home security. Thieves are getting craftier by the year, so it's important to take measures against them if you want to secure the safety of both your belongings and your loved ones.

Birthday Presents from our Friends in Texas #HappyFriendshipDay

The very first friend that I have  met  when I first started blogging back in 2008 is a dear friend who   lived in California back then.  Her family lives in Texas now and they are  a well-traveled and super adventurous family.  She never  cease to remember every occasion.  She sent me this 4-pc value plus pack Easy Grab Pyrex for my birthday.  Thanks a lot sis Dhemz, you truly are the sweetest and very thoughtful person I now.
She also sent me  souvenirs from their recent   cruise.  We planned on going with them this year but since my FIL's condition is not in a  top shape, we decided to hold off because we didn't want him to go without us here.  Aside from that, we also  have concern about finances that's why we decided to just  go on  summer adventures here nearby.
I collect magnets s and key chains so these would be great addition for my collection.  I hope that I could visit these places too  someday.  The beautiful postcards will  be arranged into my album soon.
She also sent my daughter  birthday gifts.  She love all of these and the recipe book that Akesha sent to her.
She is planning to  make some cookies and use this Texas-shaped cookie cutter that the Dias family also sent to us.  Thanks a bunch Akesha, Dhemz, and Greg for everything.
Our birthday are meaningful because of friends like you!  Since July 30 is  a national friendship day, this post is dedicated to the Dias family and to all of you whom I considered my friends on the web.
