My First Blogging Job!

This must be another Birthday gift for me! Got my first blogging opportunity from https://www.sponsoredreviews.com through http://jobmob.co.il/. I don't really know how to start this one but I can still have lots of time to search how to start and how to go about the job.

I am off from this hobby since we have to answer God's calling for us to be in a Mission field for His glory. Though my heart tells me to keep on writing and blogging but we are located in the remote area where internet access is crawling and of course costly. At first I can't imagine how life could be without an internet or the access of high  technology but whew! we survived.

I still am grateful for the opportunity God gave me to sometimes visit my favorite webs such as my blogspot thanks to http://www.google.com.ph/ and other related webs, of course my facebook account. I always look forward going to a place where I can open these account.

I missed other hang out too especially going around visiting other blogs building up traffic but you see I only have limited time for this huh! But I know this is only temporary I can still  have lots of time for this. Hope to see around dear friends and of course my google site!

Handy and Comfy Air Bed

    Our family is always on the go where God lead us to go. To camping, to evangelism, to fellowships and conferences and other places. sometimes the place where we visit does not have beds and you do not have any choice but to spread a mat on the floor. Good if it is a wooden floor it will not give you back aches but worst if it is a concrete floor. The cement will absorb the moist of the ground and it is not really good especially for those who are aging and has arthritis.

  I found a good solution for this. A comfy and handy air bed. It is easy to carry anytime  and anywhere. It won't leave back ache since the heat won't stock up in it like the rubberized foam. You will sleep comfortably and very affordable with free manual pump or electric pump in a pack.Thanks heaven for this handy and comfy bed.

Camping on the Go

Our family love to travel and attend campings. That is why we never forget to bring with us our tent, so that wherever we are we can just put it up and rest comfortably. It had been our shelter especially when we are in outdoor camping. My kids will not call it a camping activity without a tent.

In a village of Tago, Gamut, Surigao del Sur during our first youth cam. People among the village saw our tents, that was the first time they were amazed so they spread the news all over the village and told others, "  you must go and see those "balay na payong" means umbrella houses. 
Camping on the go with our tents!

Getting Bald

When I was yet seven years old I still recalled that my father's hair were becoming thinner and thinner when he was late 20 starting to reach 30 he was already bald. I also noticed this to my brothers so for short baldness is a hereditary problem among men in our family.

This is really a problem because it made you look older than your age. My brothers tried to use herbal plants to prevent hair loss. they also tried shampoos and other remedies in preventing hair loss that may lead to baldness but to no avail.

Now, I noticed that their scalp/head were already deforested. I wish I could do something. If the herbal like applying aloe vera before taking a bath did not work maybe they should see or consult Hair Treatment Experts.

My brothers are only among those men who have the same problem. So do not fret consult HTE now!

Baby's Needs

My brother Ysrael and his wife Lyka had their first baby-girl last November 17,2010. Their baby Sophie is already 3 months old. She is a cuddly, lovely and bouncy baby.

Since they are new parents they wanted to make sure that they are doing the right things for their baby. To ensure they were they sometimes consulted expert mothers or ask advises from older parents. they also ask my opinions especially in preparing for their baby's needs. I told them to make a check list of everything, so that they can be sure not to miss anything especially the little things but  important one.

I am glad they listened to me. They are making me their adviser now when it comes to parenting. But I told them sometimes you have to experiment and observe.

This is Sophie my cute niece, isn't she?

They say "a way to man's heart is through his stomach, but the way to woman's heart is through _________?

My hubby really knows my weakness, he knows how to tickle me. Even a tiny flower harvested from our garden can be an act of thoughtfulness and love to me.
I was really surprise when he gave me a bouquet of flowers after fetching our daughter to school. He seemed to have a dramatic plan. I smelled his surprise when he unusually passed by the back door and went directly to our bedroom and he seemed to hide something from me. I was so busy then to investigate but later when I entered our room.....the great surprise was revealed, and WOW! I was in cloud 9 and gave him a tight hug. He was still pursuing me and I love it.
The flower hubby gave me. What a joy to receive this!
That morning of February 14, I was a little bit upset because he was so silent to discuss with me what he intend to do for us that day. I was emoting already because he left to fetch Juwella to school without any thought. I bet that's part of the surprise.

In the evening he took me out for a dinner we went to Philtown Hotel and Restaurant. They offer Valentines Dinner Buffet for only 250.00 php per head. the price is right for 5 main dishes to choose from with 5 dessert and 1 bottle of soft drink. I enjoyed eating the four seasons vegetable and leche flan (burp).

Thank you Lord for such a thoughtful hubby you have given me.

14 Ways to Save Money on Groceries....

I find this interesting and helpful especially for us mothers!
food refrigerator (Photo by Thinkstock)

Save money and trips to the market with these tips and tricks from Rebecca DiLiberto’s Penny Saving Household Helper. You’ll be surprised how simple it is to keep food at its best.
1. Line the bottom of your refrigerator’s crisper drawer with paper towels. They’ll absorb the excess moisture that causes vegetables to rot.
2. To keep herbs tasting fresh for up to a month, store whole bunches, washed and sealed in plastic bags, in the freezer. When you need them, they’ll be easier to chop, and they’ll defrost the minute they hit a hot pan.
3. A bay leaf slipped into a container of flour, pasta, or rice will help repel bugs.

Our Christmas Escapade! Posted for MYM and RT

The whole family spent our Christmas vacation in Tago, Gamut, Surigao Sur. It was tiring since we have to travel for almost 10 hours to be in the palce where we consider as one of the paradise on earth.

We left home on December 23, 2010 4:30 dawn and we arrived at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. Though how far the place is we always look forward to be in this place. Uncle Nilo Sanchez and aunt Fely gladly welcome us and warmly accommodated us in their home. Their home iis located on a hilly section of a one-hectare Seminary for Pastors.

We were having fun. The fellowship we had was so wonderful. We also enjoyed the swimming pool and scenery of the place away from the city, away from pollution.

We got some picture of the flowers and plants surrounding the Seminary.

My first Yummy Sunday for 2011

Last November 28 to December 16, 2010, our Tatay Tony paid us a visit. I t was a holiday indeed. One of our trip is "food trip" We test and taste some food in the City.

One of our funny trip was in the BFB Big Flat Bread. Tatay Tony ordered 2 biggest pizza. We told him that it's big but then he did not imagine how big it was so he insisted to have two. He said if we cannot consume then we can take it home and have it microwave for breakfast but still it is too big for the family of 7 with 3 boys only and 2 kids. I just finished 2 slices. It was deliciously fun!
Hannah, " Can we finish all of these?"

The Joy in Passing an Examination!

Taking an exam is not easy it is just like "threading the small holes of a needle". One should burn his of her candle  before making it. But there are few who are really mentally gifted. Their problem is not to pass but to top an examination.

My brother Jonathan David A. Estilo a fourth year student of Philippine Science High School, Baloi, Lanao del Norte made it to University of the Philippines Career Aptitude Test - Electronics and Communication Engineering. He excitedly texted me yesterday! My heart was full of joy and gratefulness. God has enabled my brother to hurdle it.

We are still waiting for the results in all the examination he had taken in preparation for his college. We are praising God for all the joy he brought to us  in this victory!

My late mother should have also rejoice in this victory if she still alive! But God has purposes in everything!
This is my brother Jonathan

Sky watching! CDO Pyrotechnic

One of the most spectacle scene during the Holiday Season is the fireworks display. It was good that the City Government of Cagayan de Oro City through some sponsors made Pyrotechnic possible for viewers especially those who can't afford to buy fireworks or those who value saving more than burning money!
