Qualified. Not!

>> Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Did you know that at Blue Advantage, one can apply for the maternity option for an extra charge when you first purchase a policy, when you renew, or when you have a family status change, such as marriage? However, you can’t apply for the maternity option if you or your spouse is pregnant at the time of applying.

Another question, right now, can I apply for Blue Advantage’s  maternity option? Nope. Why? Because I AM PREGNANT! Yup, yup! At 7 weeks! Go and see my other blog to read the story.

I am still adjusting and I am grateful that people are there to support and understand. Almost everyone I know who know my situation extend help and make sure that I feel comfortable and happy. And almost everyone wishes that it’s a boy this time. :)

DD is very excited! I was able to watch their practice for their ballet recital this afternoon and I saw how helpful and kind she is to the younger ones in their group. She guided them and helped them find their place on the stage. I know and believe that she will be a loving big sister to our newest family member. :)

Height Predictor

>> Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Interested to know how tall your child will be? Visit Height Predictor to find out. I just did and was both amazed and surprised to know that:

“Your girl will likely be 5 ft. 8 in. at age 18.”

Wow! She is indeed tall for her age. When we enrolled her in her ballet class, her teachers could not believe when I told them she just turned 6. “Are you sure?”, one of them even asked. Haha!


It’s no surprise, really. I am 5’5” while her dad is 5’8” tall. But can you imagine me scolding a towering 5’8” girl for coming home late 12 years from now? LOL!

Anyways, I better get going. Our bathroom faucet needs to be changed and I have to inform DH to buy a Grohe faucet as a replacement. From what I’ve seen and learned, it’s stylish and sturdy.

That’s all for now! Ciao!


Nine Whats

Your mothers name? Susana (Now you know why I am named Suzanne)
What did you do last weekend? Volunteered. Went to Mass. Sulked.
What is the most important part of your life? My family.

What would you rather be doing? Vacationing in a Westgate resort with my family. LOL!

What did you last cry over? Secret.

What always makes you feel better when you’re upset? When I get my much needed airtime. LOL!
What’s the most important thing you look for in a significant other? Someone who knows me yet still loves me. 

What are you worried about? Sponsors for DD’s show. But God provides!
What did you have for breakfast? Coffee, rice and corned beef with potatoes. Yum!

Since I Bought Donuts This Morning

You Are a Boston Creme Donut
You have a tough exterior. No one wants to mess with you.
But on the inside, you're a total pushover and completely soft.
You're a traditionalist, and you don't change easily.
You're likely to eat the same doughnut every morning, and you pout if it's sold out.


A Belated Mothers’ Day Post

Howdy! It’s been a while. Again. I know. On Mothers’ Day, my mom requested to be confined at the hospital since her asthma has been pestering her for almost two weeks! But I kinda blame her since she has been refusing to rest. She goes to her office daily, have classes (in two universities) during weekends and not to mention she is actively serving her parish and chapel. She is one busy woman and I’ve been wondering where she gets her energy! In fact, when I came back from buying the skin care products which she requested, I found her working on a thesis of a graduate school student whom she advises. Oh well. What can we do? She is one workaholic woman!

Anyways, she will be discharged today. I hope she takes a good rest for the rest of the week.

And this may be late, but to all the wonderful, hardworking, loving and caring moms out there, BELATED HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY! I hope your day was fun!


Another Sweet Victory for Manny Pacquiao

>> Sunday, May 3, 2009

manny_pacquiaoI was never a boxing fan nor a Manny Pacquiao fan. But this time, it’s different. It dawned to me that the Filipino nation needs this fight (and every fight of Manny) to show the world that we’re a great nation and we do excel in many things if we put our hearts into it.

And so, imagine my joy and pride when I saw that Manny was able to defeat Ricky Hatton during the second round of their fight in Las Vegas today.  Woot!

I salute you Manny! Your humility, willingness to continue learning and your great faith in God serve make you a true champion to us and to the rest of the world!

God bless you Manny and  God bless the Philippines!

For Ara

A good and beautiful friend of mine from way, way back will be coming over to see me this month. It’s like eight years since we last saw each other. She surely missed the city and it’s local attractions. I know she won’t be impressed with our little mall because she has been into many big ones in her trips but she is very much looking forward to seeing new friends and her old schools and teachers.

I hope to bring her around the campus (we graduated in the same school, where I currently work) and we belonged to one organization. We used to be fighting about small things like why Filipino women love to whiten their skin, etc. But we surely loved each other no matter what. We used to frequent each others’ house  when there are celebrations and we felt so right at home that we helped in washing the dishes. I even used to stay at their place overnight and watch TV until our eyes dropped!

Well, Ara girl, here’s to more years of blessings and love! (Yup, it’s her birthday today!) Happy, happy, something-something birthday to you! Love yah and see you very, very soon!wordart,birthday,card,happy,birthday,swirl,typography-5fc414e54773f08471fb464937159166_h

Just this morning, my husband and I were shocked to hear the news that a local textile company which supplies three major clothing brands in the world will be shutting down soon. Obviously, they are being affected by the international global crisis. I feel for the workers of the said company. And I know that the school where I work will likewise be affected.

It is indeed a tough time all around the globe. Financially and health-wise. Who has not heard of the pandemic swine flu? But aside from making sure that one has strong resistance against diseases, one must also make sure that his/ her assets are well-protected. Keeping your hard-earned money in big and trusted commercial banks is a good decision. Investing on gold or silver bullion is better. Why? Because it’s a unique investment.Since time immemorial, gold bullion has been fascinating for men and women. Generally, bullions never lose their value. Thus, it is wise to invest on them.

If you have decided to go for bullions, Monex Precious Metals is ready to serve you. They provide your precious metals investment needs and serves as the  America’s best dealer with a convenient market and competitive precious metals prices.


It’s {i}NSD!

It’s {Inter}National Scrapbooking Day week and thanks to my good online, scrapbooking friend, Buge, I am very much updated about the sales here and there. Hehe. Here is her updated list of NSD sales. I have been visiting my favorite sites and drooling over some kits. Most are up for grabs at only $1 but what makes it difficult is that the offer is good for 24 hours only! Argh. Decisions, decisions. I know I already have tons of kits but still, there are those that are irresistible! Take a look at these:








The previews are linked so feel free to shop with me. Hehe. There are more to come in the coming days and I hope that I have enough self-control and my good judgment is sharp so I can resist the temptation to shop, shop and shop. ;)   

Happy NSD!
