As you know diet words, where I grow up (doesn't) really exist? Now most of my friends who are originally from the Philippines and now residence in Canada, Netherlands and here in the United States, are very conservative about what they are going to cook for big holiday seasons. Because they don't want to spoil their diet, you know. Perhaps I believe what my husband said to me that you could cook and eat whatever as long as you are active. As a mother of four, I totally believe that you can get your shape back you have no babies yet, if you work hard. I don't use any kind of diet pills and never try to reduce my eating hobbit. I am just active like when I was in the Philippines. I walked back and forth to my daughter school every morning and afternoon every day. In addition, raking falling leaves this time a year is good exercise and saves as money for not hiring somebody to clean up our yard. However, most of our neighbors does, since they are so busy working at their office. Which is I understand. Anyhow that is all for now. Sorry for not adding new post so often, I am a bit busy for my little one. She is now walking around so you know what is that mean. I need to pay attention with her.

Are you ready for Christmas? Well I've notice that most of my friends who is originally from the Philippines are now starting to put Christmas decor in their homes. They still follow the Philippines tradition even they are not in the Philippines anymore.

I have been experiencing a very hectic schedule over the past week or so. My husband has been working long hours. Thus, the responsibility for looking after our four young daughters has fallen squarely on my shoulders. Fortunately, after some very challenging days, I am finally free today. A couple of weeks ago, we hosted a visitor from New Mexico. When he finally left, his absence generally permitted me too return to my normal, everyday routine. Now that I am free, I figure that I can finish repairing my dinner table mats. Recently, each of our daughters has decided that they would enjoy slowly picking apart the table mats. Fortunately, the damage is not so extensive that I need to purchase new mats. Instead, at this stage, a simple needle and thread would be more than sufficient to accomplish my personal repairs. I am trying to make tablemats since we have different types of fabrics that we never really use. We got those fabrics as souvenir when my husband was in the United States Peace Corps in Thailand, back in 2004. Some of the fabric is nylon, which is very strong, and it has good texture. I just run a quick search for nylon and I learned that the nylon company was involved in the initial development of every major filament synthetic fiber: rayon, fiberglass, polyester, and other more. Now the manufactures company sells worldwide woven industrial fabrics primarily composed of nylon.
