Puerto princesa palawan Philippines.

Relaxing place for the summer time.
My cousin share this photo but he did not mention where this place. Where ever this picture taken I can see that this place is great. Looks very relaxing and the water is clear. I just remember when I was in Palawan back in 2003. The water is similar to this photo and it has a lot of fish. Oh! I could not stop myself thinking those memorable moments. But as you know at that time I could not appreciate how lovely being close to the ocean. Now that I far away from the ocean I really miss the sounds of the wave.


Like what I said to my other blog we are updating our insurance coverage . So now I am searching for reliable insurance companies. Because according to my husband this morning he was having trouble looking for the right car insurance company that has great deal. So I decide to run for a quick search while my little one is in her nap time. And sure enough there were couples site that I think is great. This company is one of the leaders in the industry and have narrowed down your choices accordingly. So if you want to know more about this company please don’t hesitate to click the high light words on this post. Thanks and have a bliss weekend.

Adobong pusit

The last time I cook squid when I was 14 years old. When I went to H-Mart few days ago I saw this squid and since the price was acceptable I decide to get two.
Since this quid is not so frees I will just cook with vinegar sauce and put a lot of garlic onion and some ginger. Hope my kids will like it.
If this is frees squid I will make it a salad squid but since this is not so frees.
So let me stop here so that I can start cooking our dinner.

My husband recently left his law firm after nearly six years to establish a firm of his own. This was a huge decision for our family as it required that we separately acquire and pay for many benefits that were formerly provided by my husband’s employer. This included our retirement investment account, our medical insurance, our vision insurance and our dental insurance. We spoke to various friends and family members about health insurance plans and received several good suggestions. One of the most cost effective programs out there appears to be offered by Ameriplan . They offer discount medical, dental and vision coverage as an alternative to employer-sponsored insurance. The monthly cost can be less than $15.00 for some of their value plans, but in any event will likely be far less than what you might have been required to pay under an employer plan.

birth announcements

When I was a kid, I never knew that people sometimes send around formal birth announcements . Well, I guess that is probably because I grew up in a small, rural, provincial town. As family members and friends tended to live close together, most folks their never seemed to send formal announcements of any kind. Instead, they would rely on close friends and family to spread important news by word of mouth. As I grew older, and my hometown continued to grow, little seemed to change in this regard. Friends and family still tend to live pretty close together which renders formal announcements unnecessary. However, in my late teens, I moved from my home town to a much larger and cosmopolitan city, Manila. There, people tended to be more dispersed, which generally made it necessary to sometimes send formal announcements regarding important events. In my early twenties, I married and moved to the United States. Here, it is fascinating to note the general cultural differences regarding the distribution of formal birth announcements. Unlike in the Philippines, here people tend to want to announce the birth of their children to acquaintances and near strangers. This is very different from the Philippines where the announcement of births tends to always be informal and spread through word of mouth. My husband and I welcomed the birth of our fourth daughter last December. Consistent with Philippine culture, we generally spread the word through word of mouth to family and friends. Since that time, I have also inadvertently let people know about our new daughter by posting photos on Facebook. Currently, I am thinking about sending formal announcements after all. Our daughter will soon be five months old. She has taken some really nice photos over the past several months. Thus, I think it would be nice to reach out to more distant friends and family by way of a formal written announcement.

Disneyland tickets

My mother-in-law celebrates her sixty-fifth birthday this year. A couple of months ago, she called to say that she hoped t o spend it with all of her four children and their families in Anaheim, California. Her plan was to have a big family gathering at Disneyland. Although we have four children age six and under, we have never visited Disneyland in the United States. The closest we ever got was a trip to Disneyland Hong Kong last year. We would love to finally get a chance to visit one of the oldest Disney theme parks in the world and will plan on buying our Disneyland tickets sometime soon. The big question will be making our travel arrangements. After a trip to Myrtle Beach this year for spring break, I fear that the cost of plane tickets could be rather high for us. We have a four month old, a two year old, a three year old and a six year old. Thus, in addition to tickets for me and my husband, we would also need tickets for three of our four children. Of course, a cross country drive is out of the question for such a short one-week vacation. Hopefully we can find some good travel deals. It would be wonderful to see everyone again – especially in such a fun place as Disneyland. If the travel arrangements work out, I am sure that it will be a vacation to remember.

Newlywed Adventures

Guest post of the week by Bradley Guthrie

 Our sweet little life here in Virginia is turning out to be a honeymooners dream. We have only been married for a year but we quickly put roots down in a quiet little suburb. Our mid-century modern home purchase started out looking like a medium sized remodel, but quickly turned into a budget busting full size over haul. It was a bit overwhelming at first but we found a general contractor who has made it a pleasant experience. My out dated home quickly became my modern dream home for my husband and I to enjoy and start a family. We came in under budget and ahead of schedule in spite of some setbacks and rough winter weather. I was able to keep our living budget in check thanks to DIRECTV King George and their wonderful bundling deals. We also found great furniture pieces at some of the local consignment and antique shops. We really could not be happier with all the hard work and attention to details both from us and from our contractors. We will enjoy this house for many years to come.

Thia office in bak dong.

I was looking at on our old pictures that we took when we are in Thailand two years ago. This is the office of my husband when he was in Thailand. This place is two miles from the house where I stayed in Thailand. Every day Tim rides a bicycle back and forth to this place. In 2010 while we are in Thailand we visited Tim office with our children and first got caught on my attention is this caws running around in the front door of the office. So I took a snapped shot. Funny is you look back on your old pictures that you take several years ago you can image everything happen back then and you can recall and tell a story about what’s going on.

Natural tone of your lips

As a stay home mom I pretty much at home most of the time. I never go somewhere from Monday through Friday. Since I’m at home all day I don’t feel brushing my hair in the morning. When I get up I just tie up my hair and start making breakfast and work around the house, just like many mom who are staying at home you know.

Did you enjoy your sparing break vacation.?

Our spring vacation pictures at Myrtle Beach. We stayed there 3 nights and 4days. It was one o’clock in the afternoon while we are relaxing at the beach and all of the sudden police come. So I think that maybe those guys are drinking beer you know. Because in Virginia beach is not allow to drink alcohol that’s only my guest why the police came and talk to them you know. But anyhow here are some pictures that I took while we are in Myrtle Beach.
My two little girls are relaxing. 
I don't know why the police is there.
Pull hard girl.
