High School Memories

Friday is so much fun because I get to see old photos from different friends here in blogland. My entry for this week is my high school photos. So sorry about the quality. I am glad that I brought my pictures with me when I migrated hehehe. It was my husband's idea actually, he told me to bring all my photos from the Phils.
Friday Photo Flashback
I was third year high school in this photo. I ran for President of the School Council, with smiles and other sweet talk, I won lol. Can you spot where I am?
I was in fourth year high school on this one. I took food trades as my major because it is less expensive on projects. My batchmates and I would just contribute and make something as a group. Unlike dress making, you have to buy your own material to make your projects and I could not afford for that. Although I like dress making, I chose food trades instead. It is easy to recognize me here because I am all smiles lol..
Have a good weekend and spooky Halloween everyone!

The entrance to the mall.


My daughter has a great time out there, can you tell?

This part is on the fourth floor of the building.

They brought the outdoors on top, a very nice place to relax to.







I love this structure so much.

How's your weekend guys?

Give thanks...

You might be wondering why I am addicted to joining meme this month. To tell you the truth, I am enjoying the fact that I can travel the world through other people's blog especially those who always post photos and details about it on their blog. The new one that I joined in this week is the Thursday Thirteen. A meme that calls for 13 things that's in your mind. You can write whatever you have in mind at the moment.

For my first entry, I would like to give thanks to the Lord God;
  1. That my mother was healed through His power;
  2. That we are slowly moving on with our loss to my late brother;
  3. That we have food everyday;
  4. That no matter what problem comes our way, my husband and I choose not to argue about it;
  5. That my family was spared from the strong typhoon that hit Philippines (Still praying for those who are badly affected);
  6. That my children are healthy;
  7. That I learned blogging and meet good friends around the world;
  8. That my husband's tour in Korea is almost over;
  9. That we are going back to our home in 34 days;
  10. That we were given a chance to visit my family in the Philippines twice;
  11. That I have such a loving, understanding, and supportive husband;
  12. That through the help of the Navy, our travel expenses going to the Philippines when my brother died was paid for by the government; and lastly
  13. For providing us all our needs everyday, for giving us good friends and neighbors.
AMEN


Thanks to the Alba Family for the hand-me-down clothing for my son.

Poinsettia

I took this vibrant Poinsettia when we had our walk at the lake last week and though that it would be a perfect entry for Ruby Tuesday.
Hope this beauty would somehow bring you some energy today.
Head on to Mary's blog to find more interesting Ruby Tuesday entries.

Friendly Guest


This is the pigeon (not sure if its a pigeon or morning dove) that visits our front yard almost everyday. She/he is eating the fruit that fell from the pine tree.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Playing with the Sun

 These were taken when we went to Daegu last Augutst(2009).
On our way home, the Sun was teasing me so I played with him too. Here are some of my snapshots. The first one is a circus man, flipping over. Can you see his feet on the left side and his butt on the air lol... His hands are on his knees holding the sun hehehe. This lady is kneeling and she is offering something to the sun, do you see it? This one looks like a puppy is being chased by another puppy.. whatyathink? I love these three... It looks like God flying over us. The following two photos are just the sun hiding in the array of clouds. So there you go my friends, my adventures with the the king sun and the clouds. Have a blessed day to all! Look for this sweet smile. Thank you so much!

two faces

My daughter was acting yesterday. She told me that she was a little bit upset because I didn't give her what she wanted. But anyhow, to shift the mood that she was on, I told her that I will take a picture of her upset mood and will also take a happy face and she agreed. So here is the happy face that she portrayed hahaha.. Kids are so funny, you just have to learn how to work with their moods swings...
So what do you think guys lol?!

Women's Closet

The theme for this week's Girl Talk Meme is about dresses. It is funny because I played dressed up with my husband. He asked "Why are you dressed up?" I said "you need to do a photo shoot for me". Luckily he was in the mood so he played along with me hahaha.

This is my very first dress where I spent more than a thousand pesos hehehe. If it wasn't for the very important event in the school where I work then, I wouldn't buy such a price for this. But we were instructed to wear formal clothes so I have to obey orders.

Of all the dresses, this is my favorite. I ca wear this everyday and everywhere.
I have never worn these four dress yet. John bought me this one recently as my anniversary gift.

He bought these two (pink and red) during our vacay in the Philippines.
I am flirting with my husband here lol..
I bought this one when we went to Pinas last March kaya lang I need to lose my bilbil pa before I could wear this outside the house lol.. Kaya nakasideview ako para di halata ang maximum bilbil hahaha..

Most of my clothes, shoes, and bags are chosen by my hubby. I am not good with girl stuff lol.. Happy Thursday everyone!

Celedon

Every year, my husband want to buy something for our anniversary. This year, him and I decided to get a set of celedon vase (man and woman). He also got the big plate to represent our kids. This will be our very memorable remembrance of our stay here in Korea.
It cost 225 bucks for the whole set, a little bit pricey but I guess its worth it.

Stuffed & Grilled Squid

I took out the gut of the squid and stuffed it with chopped up onions and tomatoes. I put soy sauce and sprinkled it with black pepper. This was my first time doing this kind of menu, I am not even sure if there's a recipe like this hehehe. I just made it up and the result is awesome. Too bad my kabarangays are not fond of squid so I am the only one eating it. I freeze three of them, now I am down to one lol..

I found one jalapeño in the fridge so I cut it in half, removed its seeds, stuffed it with the salsa and then I put it inside the squid's tummy. I like it better than the one that does not have jalapeño.

I put foil on top of the grill so it won't burn easy.

Oh after you stuffed the squid, make sure to put tooth pick to it so the stuffing wont come out.

Try it guys, it is soooo good!

My new creation, grilled stuffed squid! Happy Yummy Sunday!

Hey guys, I would like to invite you to please vote for my daughter's smile. You can find the link on my side bar.. thanks a lot!
