Just in my thoughts

Maybe you think I'm being lazy, yes I'm lazy, (lol) lazy to write and compose something motivational and inspiring stories to write here.  But what you don't know I always think to write but I chose not to because I got lazy as I said(lol). I just always open my account but close again when I don't know where to start. Yes,  I had a lot of ideas, stories, experiences and adventures to share but again I'm lazy to share it with you (lol). Selfish as I am, now they're all my history that one day I will still be able to share to you.
This year, I can say that I'm so blessed with many things from work, friends and life as a whole.  Aside that my dad passed away this year but I just accept it as a challenge and blessing too as he is already with our Almighty God and he is at peace with all the problems we may encounter everyday in this world.
I hope next year I will be more inspired and put a spare moment to write. I remember before I'm on into photography so maybe that encourage me more to write and share interesting and unique photos, but now my time and photo sharing was being put into facebook, I should devote some time here too.(lol) how unfair I can be to my sites.

Celebrity Engagement

Even I'm living in Australia, I can say that I'm still up-to-date of what is happening in my birth country Philippines.  Actually, I don't normally watch Aussie television on a daily basis, but I was hooked up watching the pinoy tv shows via internet.  As in everyday, after work I'm watching some favourite drama series, some comedy and variety shows, I read some articles about showbiz industries personalities and current events about the country.

Recently, I read some articles and watch short clip videos and updates about few celebrities that has been engaged.  Those men are showing their love and commitment to the public by giving the promise rings for girlfriend  uttering those magic words "Will u marry me?".  Some celebrities have their own style of expressing the best marriage proposal surprise the girl could ever imagine.  It was such a very romantic gesture a man could ever do to the girl he wants to bring to the altar and live a life of happily ever after.
I wish them good luck for the next chapter of their lives.
The celebrities I've known that got engaged this year are:
Neri Naig and Chito Miranda

Bianca Gonzales and JC Intal

Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes

John Prats and Isabel Oli

Powerful speaker

Last 11th of November was my hubby's birthday, before the day come I ask him what gift he wants to receive. He would sometimes say "no" for a gift but this year he was the one who open up. He is excited in saying,  "my birthday is coming soon it means I get a gift for myself". I had a giggle only.  Usually a cartoon of iced coffee milk will makes him happy. Now, he asks to have another speaker to add on our entertainment unit, I then suggest to him to look at muscians friend site if he might like a few choices of affordable and powerful speaker, it's ok to me.
He still making decision about to get or not because he's budget for gift is not much to buy the speaker he wants.  He might save up his daily allowance or wait until Christmas to get it or either he will choose to fix his multi-meter so he can use if he needs them.
My hubby is undecided and sometimes worries about what next to buy in addition to his gadget and toys collection. I sometimes laugh at him because he was always updated to new technologies and upgrades.

Today, it's my first time again to have a short hours morning shift, 6-10am.  After work, I went home with the thought of going back to sleep straight away, but I was side tracked with hanging the clothes from last night laundry, I forgot to hang hehe.  Then, I tidy the house a bit so my mood will feel great.  I ate my lunch after then relax and watch my drama series.  I had some random browsing as well while watching and I had a quick read about everett gaskins hancock llp, it's an interesting law firm business I may say.
After making myself tired again, the window of opportunity to sleep is coming, so I did and to remember I had a nice dream about my deceased dad, but felt sad and tears are falling, I miss him so much.
I woke up hearing the door bells, it's a stranger who will pick up the advertising sales catalogue he dropped the other day to all neighbours in the suburb.  From then I thought of making for the first time one Filipino dessert called Maja Blanca, now chilling in the fridge to be eaten tomorrow. Plus, I had cooked a nice dinner for hubby, a fried breast fillet chicken with mustard and dill marinade with garlic broccoli as the side dish.
Indeed, I had really had a productive and lovely day.

Entertainment Unit

At Home, we had this entertainment unit that hubby set up for a long time. That's one of his passion is to have a powerful sounds.  He likes to play loud music and he prefers that we will watch movie at home using the years old but powerful amp that creates very loud and beautiful sound effects. It's really more than similar than going to a cinema.  Sometimes, if I feel like to watch movie in cinema I just do watch with hubby at home because the visual and sounds effects were just the same plus it's private, romantic atmosphere  and we just feel like we are watching in gold class.  It's cheap and very comfortable entertainment for us, once in a while we don't mind to watch movie in cinema as well.
Speaking of powerful sounds, I've found one online and it seems to be the latest and high quality sound amplifier.  I will tell my hubby about this and I bet he will be more excited to have a look at it, read the information and specification of the unit.

I never thought it will take 4 days until I become better.  Yes, I was unwell the past few days because of being dizzy, at first I thought it's just nothing or will go away quickly after I took panadol, sleep and wake up feeling better the next day, but it didn't until it becomes repetitive feeling, so I call sick from work because I'm not able to drive and the dizzy feeling is not getting better at all. 
The next day, my husband and I went to the doctor for examination why I'd felt the continuous dizziness for more than a day. I was thinking I'm dehydrated or low blood pressure or not eating on time. As the doctor checked some of the reason why I got dizzy, he told that my right ear was a bit inflamed or there is infection. I'm wondering why I had no clue it was caused by my ear, I didn't feel any aches, ringing or sore in it. I then remember a week ago when I'm cleaning my ear with cotton buds, it must be the reason why.  It's not a very good feeling because it affects the balance and wellness of my body. I can't do much here at home as it's an awful feeling. I was all day in bed just trying to be in one direction because when I move in other or stand up I can feel that my world is spinning. 
Anyway, with the help of ear drops and medicine for dizziness I'm now feeling better and was already backed to work.

It's been 3 months now

The moment the you left us here on earth is still fresh in my mind. It seems only like yesterday had passed whenever I imagine the way you laugh and talk, your jokes and giggles when we had conversation I can feel that you're still alive. Sometimes they misunderstood that your always shouting or angry, but they don't know it's your natural voice and some don't understand it, I really do that's why I don't mind the way you talk and act in front of us.

You are so grateful if someone give you something.  You become fan of my favourite color that's why you are happy when we bought the green motorbike. Now, he is alone, also becoming old and had some problem of course due to wear and tear from day today use, lucky  it was repaired and  replaced with some cheap motorcycle parts to keep running .  When your helper on chicken shop ride on it my mum was frightened, thinking it's you driving home, she was used to the sound of the motorbike everyday, that it's you they're waiting to come home for breakfast and dinner. I think now, it's not being driven often sothat mum won't be reminded that you're already gone.
I hope mum is already coping and well adjusted with the fact of the sudden changes in her daily routine.  I still can't believe your absence but truly you will be always be missed and stay forever in our hearts.  I'm still looking forward to see and hug you if I think of planning a holiday and share some fun times and happy memories together with the whole family.

I was saddened by the news that he was taken away too soon.  It was unexpected by all of us, he is so precious more than like  gemstone jewelry to all of us. Why too soon papa?  Our papa, who never fail to show his best to give us good life and loved us unconditionally.  The incomparable father I've known, the one who never ever  tried to use his hand to hurt us or flick or pinch or spank or hit us with stick if we his children are naughty and bad. The most loving and kind father as we always describe him, if we talk about him to our friends, we are so lucky to have him us our father.  But now, you're gone and it made me realize how much I've lost.  I still need more time to spend to be with him and let him feel a very comfortable life, I'd promise him and mum to visit Australia after my sister's holiday here. He don't wait for that.
Now, that you are in heaven, I will just accept the fact that you are not physically present with us but always present in our hearts.  I've shed a lot of tears every time I'm thinking of you.  I still can't believe you're gone now and left us too soon.  I miss you so much papa, I may not so expressive and showy how I'd both love you and mama. I'm proud a proud daughter of yours.
Please always guide and protect our lives.  Be our angel in our daily life. I love you papa.

Very Useful

The calling cards or  business cards are always useful to me, I often get one on some shops or other business establishment I had been visited.  I collect those contact information or brochures that are given away in case one day I need to make transactions or have some inquiries.
Like last time, I went to the seafood shop nearest to my place to assume and just feeling lucky if they have the product I'm looking for. I'm not too sure if it is available that day especially it's hard to get them on late afternoon which is the time I went to, because of luck I got what I've wanted, the shop save those scraps and store in the freezer.  The "whiting fish heads" for crabbing baits.
Before I've left the shop, I took a business card in case I needed some whiting heads again in the future, although they're 5 minutes drive only it's still best to call them ahead of time before going there just checking if the product I've wanted is available on hand so then I can place an order.  It's just convenient and I'm avoiding to waste some time.

Used flute

Many of us wants to develop a talent of our own. The talent in cooking, sports, dancing, singing, playing instruments and etc. Sometimes we are trying hard to fulfil and improve the talent we are pursuing, some did achieve it and some are still working hard on it or some can't keep doing it because of financial reason. I wonder why, some people refuse to continue especially those inspiring musicians, I never thought one of the instruments they used like flute can be very expensive it's worth 10,000+ dollars for a brand new flute when I was looking online. But guess what? you really don't need to have a brand new, just to let you know there are a many used flute from musicians friend that you can buy for 100 dollars only 90% cheaper and it's still immaculate condition and it's like brand new.  It's highly recommended for those who wants to play flute and a student learner who wants to be a great musician someday.

The old is gone, a new one comes

The gift of friendship.  It's been more than 5 years now that I am living here in Australia.  I've met a lot of people along the way.  I've gained some good friends from work and from my Filipino community. I was once I had a very good friend that I always hang around with. I thought its friends for life but it wasn't. You can't really tell what happen next until the friendship experience some challenges, it is where you know who the real person is, who will stick into your life no matter what happen. 
Yes,  I've lost a very good friend before for some silly reason but now so happy to found a new one. She is not the same as the old one but we seem to have lots in common and get along in every other way of life.  I hope it's a friend forever, a friend who knows how to embrace the essence and meaning of friendship. I have a few acquaintances that I catch up once in a while but it's different to have one that anytime you can talk to or hang out like the one I had before, but now, lucky to have new one again that I can treasure.
I'm thanking the Lord for always there to me and who knows what is my needs and wants in life.  Giving me good friends is one thing I'm thankful for, I'm so blessed and happy not only with family but also sharing the good times with great friends.

Cool Change

After a week of super hot temperature, since last night was a relief of cool change. Although, thunder and lightning are a bit scary the rain was a bonus to cool down the surroundings. As it's weekend, I guess the crowds in the beach are increasing more and more. How I wish I'm not working today, so I can be an additional crowd in the beach too (lol).  
It might be great weather to those getting married today in an outdoor atmosphere, the guys who wears tuxedo vests might still feel comfortable with this weather and enjoying the party without heat problem
With this cool change as well it will be less consumption of electricity. While the heat is burning this week the 3 air-conditioning at home were all in use all day.  I was now a bit worried when the bill comes this quarter, but well what can I do? I hope it's not a huge bill only.
I hope you guys are now relieve, comfortable and happy with this cool change and continue enjoying the summer fun.

Keeping cool

After enjoying the 9 hours coolness at work.  Here I am now back home,  resting, relaxing and trying to keep myself cool with this super hot weather. I've been to backyard earlier to visit my garden and my tomato plants were so weak, so I've watered them to recover from heat.  I'd turned on the air conditioning in the lounge so I can watch the only sports I like on tv. The tennis game of Australian Open, not too exciting yet because the one playing right now are not my favorites, usually they play on evening highlight games.  
Now, I'm having a snack and an ice cold  grape flavour drink. Just sitting and relaxing in reclining chair is nice, it makes me fall asleep.  I wish I could get a deep tissue massage just to spoil myself.
I hope tonight will have a cool change like of last night. How are you guys keeping yourself cool? Don't worry about the electric bill put yourself on a comfortable feeling and enjoy the coolness inside the house.
