Choosing Good Quality Tires for Your Vehicle


Tires play a vital role in vehicle safety and their importance cannot be taken lightly. Tires are the only part of the vehicle that touches the road. The tires condition can affect the vehicle’s performance on the road, the handling, and can place our safety at risk. The tires condition can also affect the fuel consumption of the vehicle.

Hong Kong DIY Family Trip 2018


This post is almost 3 months delayed, whoah!!! Nevertheless, I'm happy I'm finally able to share our first family international trip to Hong Kong last January 28 - February 3, 2018! Yay!

First of all, shout out to my friend, Patrick for restoring all the photos from my corrupt microSD card. Oh, he's such a savior and I can't thank him enough for doing this! I was so broken hearted, when I was sure that the photos are restored, I couldn't contain my happiness. Thanks so much, Pat! :) If not for you, we'd only have less than a hundred photos from this trip.

The Power of Praying for One Another


Has anyone told you "I have prayed for you"? Do you remember how wonderful it is to hear that from them?

Someone did not just remember you, someone actually prayed for you, wished you well, and even asked God to watch over you. When I hear this from someone, I instantly feel at peace.

I believe in the power of prayer.

5 Tips to Teaching English Composition


Teachers are always looking for new and exciting ways to improve in the classroom. After all, your approach to teaching will determine how excited and ready to learn your students will be. That’s a huge responsibility and is especially true when it comes to teaching English composition.

Let’s face it: most students typically don’t like to write compositions. Learning how to structure their thoughts and frame their arguments can be a difficult challenge indeed – one that many students would prefer not to tackle. However, as teachers, we understand just how vital these skills can be to our assuring our students’ success in the adult world.

Enjoying Life's Little Surprises


Surprises can make us either overjoyed or completely unhappy, depending on how it is said and what the surprise is.

But little surprises from my little boy are always wonderful for me. To name a few:

Parents Get Up (No Matter What)


Last week was challenging for me. I was sick almost every day. I'm glad I am now healed and can go back to doing the things I love to do.

Sunday last week, I had dysmenorrhea around the time I was teaching Sunday School in our youth department. I haven't had dysmenorrhea in a long time and the possible reason I had one that day was probably that I was 5 days delayed (which is another story as we thought I was pregnant, lol.).  Thankfully, the medicine did the trick and I was able to still teach.

Road to Life Insurance: My Sunlife VUL


Sometime last year, I decided to start learning about finances and investing. I started learning by watching YouTube videos about financial literacy and reading financial-related sites. Although I can't say I am completely well-versed now 'coz really, I still have a lot to learn, I can say that I have learned some of the basic things already.

REALTALK: Kasalanan ba ang Mangutang?


Ang topic na pera dito sa atin ang medyo "taboo" o hindi masyadong pinag-uusapan ng marami. Parang na-o-awkward ang iba pag nag-uusap tungkol dito. Isa dapat ito sa mga topics na kampante tayong pinag-uusapan kasi maraming aspects ng buhay natin na kailangan natin 'to. Bilang kristyano, nararapat na maintindihan natin kung ano ang nakasaad sa bibliya tungkol sa pangungutang. Bago ako magpatuloy sa usaping ito, nais kong sabihin na kami ay lumaking hirap sa buhay, at maraming beses na kinailangang mangutang ng aking mga magulang para lang matustusan ang aming pangangailangan sa araw-araw.

Maging hanggang ngayon, hindi parin maiiwasan ang pangungutang. Itong post na ito ay para sa ating lahat. Ayon sa aking nabasa, may dalawang uri ng utang:

LDR AGAIN


 If you are a friend from Facebook,  you may have seen my post about Dane leaving again to go back to Saudi Arabia and work. He was on vacation for 42 days and it was one of the happiest days of my life.

But just as things in this have to end, so was his vacation.  And so our journey for another year away has begun yet again. Good thing I'm not the only one, my friend's husband also had to leave again about a month before Dane left.

3 "Sabaw" Moments in Hong Kong


While I wait (with fingers and feet crossed) for my friend to try to retrieve my corrupt microSD card, let me share with you our sabaw moments when we were in Hong Kong. These experiences are both funny and embarrassing at the same time. :)

1. The Airport MTR
On most of our flights, local flights that is (since HK was our first int'l flight together), Dane and I are among the last people to leave the plane. Especially now that we have Nate, ayaw na namin makipagsiksikan at makipagbakbakan sa mga pasahero para lang makalabas. So we did the same when we arrived in Hong Kong International Airport.

Davao del Norte Sports and Tourism Complex


Tagum City is the home of the Davao City Provincial Capitol and the Davao del Norte Sports and Tourism Complex (formerly named Davao Sports Complex which was torn by the fire in 2003). Since the place is just about a few hours away from where our relatives live, I made sure that Nate gets to see the sports complex.

Most Common Mistakes When Caring for Your Classic Car

Credit: Pixabay
A classic car you take to shows requires tender loving care. You do not want to leave it out in the open or have it sitting in your garage unprotected. Invest in a car storage bubble so that contaminants never make contact with the surface. You also want to avoid the following mistakes when performing maintenance on such an expensive, delicate vehicle.

The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman


We were scheduled to visit the Ocean Park Adventure during our second day in Hong Kong. It was the first attraction on our itinerary. I booked the said theme park months ago via Klook and we were given instructions on where to wait for the bus that would take us to Ocean Park.

Since the meeting place was just about 15 minutes away from where we stay, I thought it would be easy to go there even without a mobile internet connection. I thought it would be nice to do it the traditional way - to ask around from people. I was so wrong.

My Miniso Mongkok, Erm, Haul (?)


Our trip to Hong Kong was great! It was too cold but we all had a great time. It was just the three of us there, unlike here at home where we live with other family members, so it's nice to be able to have that time when it's just us and no one else.

Kalanggaman Island: DIY Budget Trip + A Few Travel Tips


Just when I thought we won't make it to Palompon because of the typhoon in Leyte last December, God gave us a good weather last January 6 so our original plan to go visit Kalanggaman Island was realized!

The day we left we flew back to Manila from our 2-week stay at my hometown, was the also the same day Dane arrived from KSA! We reunited with Dane at NAIA terminal 3 in December 30, we ate lunch and checked in for our flight to Tacloban. Nate is a great boy, kinaya nya ang mga mahahaba at nakakapagod na biyahe! All he did was sleep on almost all flights! lol.

Dane's hometown is in Isabel, Leyte and since the place is just a few hours away from Kalanggaman Island, we didn't want to miss experiencing the place. I mean, who wouldn't, right? Sa pictures pa lang online, mapapa-wow kana kasi sa ganda ng Kalanggaman. So one early Saturday morning, we prepped to leave going to the splendid island.

Kalanggaman, in Bisaya, means a place with many birds (from the word langgam, which means bird in Bisaya). On the other hand, "langgam" in Filipino means ants, so if we say kalanggaman in Tagalog, it means a place with lots of ants, which is also true in this island, kasi andami ding langgam! 


The happy guy saying thanks for visiting his mama's blog. :)

This Blog is Done Hibernating :)


Hello, hello! :)

I am sad right now because Dane just left to KSA but I don't wanna dwell on the feeling of loneliness, hence, the blog. haha.

I am finally back! I have so many stories to tell, I can't wait to start writing about them soon! :)

I don't know if this blog has a frequent reader aside from me (lol) but if anyone noticed, I have been on and off blogging since late last year. For so many reasons, of course, but the #1 reason for it is my dearest Dane. He went home and I wanted to make the most out of his vacation. So if that means putting blogging aside to make more time for my husband, I would gladly do it.

Hometown Visit 2017


 Finally, after two years, Nate and I were able to visit my family in Tagum City last December. I can still remember the excitement we had while going to the airport as it was Nate's first time to fly after two years.

We stayed in Tagum for almost two weeks. Sadly, Dane didn't make it, but still, we had a great time there. It's where I celebrated my 29th birthday. And, of course, as always, thank God for the opportunity to be with family and for my job, which I can take with me wherever I go (as long as there's a reliable internet connection).

2018 Savings Challenge - Can I Do This?


Many people start each year with a new year resolution. I am not used to doing that, what Dane and I have are plans and prayers for the year (which reminds me, I haven't done this year's yet, haha). I did something different since last year, though. I tried the saving challenge for the first time! It's called the "24-payout money challenge". Maliit na ipon lang as I just wanted to gauge myself and see if I can really do it - maintain saving money for a year. I didn't actually think I could do it but I did! Wooot! That was what I used when we visited my family in Tagum City last month.
