Puppy love

I never thought that I could become emotional attached with our puppy, since we got her, I took care of her really like a real baby, giving her bath, feeding and take her for a walk almost everyday. The hardest part of it is doing a house training, by this training I really kept my eyes on her most of the time so I can bring her outside to do potty and pee. Those are rewarded now coz she really make her things outside our house, every time she she needs; she will whine facing our backdoor. Having a dog needs more patience and understanding. With this I can relate the book that I am reading it is all about the Life’s lessons from a man’s bestfriend. It is very interesting coz as I go on along with the pages I can relate more to it and able to understand the nature of a dog.

Approve by PPP

i just came home from doing errands for my mother-in law and then have a late lunch, after doing things, i find time to sit in front of the computer again making blog hopping. Then i remember that i have to check my e-mail to see if i have an email from PayPerPost; then to my surprised they sent me saying that they approved my blog entry. I was so excited! For me it means that if we have determination and patient then we can really achieve what we wanna be.

Feeling sad today

I felt sad today because my husband left for Los Angeles doing a pre-bid job walk. Some other time he is always on the trip and be gone for three days, at first it was hard on my part, I am not used of being alone by myself but later on I learned to adjust myself .

Mexican Foods

Taco and burrito are one of my husband’s favorite Mexican foods. Those foods are top of my recipe. My first reaction for refried beans was I felt so gross because of the smell; it has a smell that similar to body odor...(yucks!!)But still I tried it. In my thoughts, dried fish has stronger aroma but still yummy so as the beans, but later on I began to love it especially in my burritos or a side dish. Fajitas are also the best. Makes me hungry now guys!!


Almost everyday I kept on thinking of what kind of recipe I am going to make. My husband is American so I have to consider his taste when it comes to food. But luckily there is no much problem with our taste. He is not so picky and so I am and preparing foods for him is not that hard on my part. But since the recipes that I am familiar to cook with is not much available here, I have to look for some recipe on a cookbook, magazines or in the internet, somehow I able to find some recipes that we like and click to our taste.

I am not a chocolate lover but when it comes to See’s Candies I cannot resist to eat more, I really love this chocolate milk with almond, I tried some of imported chocolates but this one is simply the best. And for the meantime while waiting for my husband doing his videogame I am having a chocolate. It so yummy!

Sundial Bridge at Turtle Bay

Sundial bridge at Turtle Bay is a beautiful, unique pedestrian bridge that crosses the Sacramento river and connects the nationally-designated trail system in Redding, California. It is beautiful because of its aqua-green, opaque glass deck; The designer of the bridge is a world-known architect Santiago Calatrava, to him the bridge resembles a bird in flight, and symbolizes the overcoming of adversity.

Exploring Shasta Lake

Shasta LAke is part of the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. It was created by damming three major rivers, the Sacramento, Mccloud and Pitt rivers. In the 1940s, the dam became the center for the Central Valley Project, and Shasta Dam became the second largest dam in the United States, with 6.5 million cubic yards of concrete, standing 602 feet tall and spanning more than 3,000 feet.

Last camping for summer

We will be having our last summer camping this coming weekend at the Trinity Lake. This time will going for a fifth-wheel and not the tent camping anymore. The campground has amenities like swimming pool, banana ride, and ping-pong. I have not been in this place yet but I am definitely sure that it is fun and exciting.

Rice to Potatoe?

Rice is the staple food for every Filipinos, in every meal there is always rice on the table, steamed or fried rice is the common way of making rice. Nowadays people were thinking if how they can survive for daily life when the basic food which is rice has a skyrocketing price. People are struggling because of the economy crisis, and now there is an opinion that Filipino people might turn to bread or potato for a rice.

Another day

It is another new week once again and i am getting busy around the house doing chores, well this my daily routine since i got here with my husband. I will be all alone again for the coming days since my husband will be going to Southern California for a job walk. thinking what to do, maybe go shopping, huh?

Trying to Learn on blogging

I am a member of a forum called WOF in short and was at Bisaya Section when somebody posted about making a blog and how to earn on it. I got my interest and I chatted with Gladys and asked heron how to do it. Since then I made some articles about my new life here and some of my daily activities. Later on I became discontented with the outlook of my blog site so I kept on changing the templates but still it looks boring to me. So asked again another friend from the forum, her name is Flor, and as usual she shared again her knowledge about it, so another gathered information. But today I happened to make a Link from other bloggers but I could not make it so I find way to fix the problem but still I cant solve it, so I decided to browse on the forum again to find posts about bloggers, then I found one and she gave he YM, so I added her and asked her if she can help me, so she did! She re-do my blog site and I was so happy. I am so glad to find a person who share their knowledge and help to the best of their ability. God Bless you All!!!!

Some necessary things

I noticed that this year we so much expenses. We purchased a used KIA 2007 model. It is necessary for me to have a car so I can drive around whenever I need something or if I can have a job, then after passing my road test and got my driver’s license I still need to get an insurance which cost again another bucks. We had our vacations at Philippines for seven days, it is so short but worthwhile anyway. Then summer came; we had our camping, vacation at Disneyland, a short weekend trip at Oregon and now for the coming weekend we will be going for a camping. Just yesterday we bought a water heater tank since our old tank ruptured and we cannot just ignored it but needed to replace it right away so we can use hot water. These expenses I think is upsetting but we don’t have a choice since some are really necessary, so now we keep on budgeting and no shopping for awhile.

When there is so much food it is so hard to stick on a diet. I and my husband really need to go on diet to lose weight. We are doing only 2 meals; breakfast and lunch, and for dinner we only have light snacks. We weigh every Sunday and we see that we lose some of our weight. I did walking everyday in the morning with my dog and do some dancing to shed off more weight.

First Vacation in Pinas

Last February of this year we went for a short vacation in my own native land. It was very short but worthwhile coz I happened to see again my family and friends. The first thing that I ever wanted was to see my parents and then secondly to have a foods that I usually have when was still there. I really miss my family and looking forward to see them again in the near future. Here are some of our pictures during our first trip in Pinas.

new hair cut

I have this curly hair and want to get rid of it by trying different hair straightening product. One day I went to salon and asked the hairstylist what she can do with my hair to make it straight. She told me that she like my curly hair so I decided to have it trim instead. She suggested to use a PaulMitchelle hair products like the Serum and mousse, I bought it in the store and been using it every time I am using my hair flat iron to make my hair straight.


It is almost over but this year’s summer was not good, there was a wildfire and took a month before it was fully contained. Even the temperature is in hundred degree or ninety we did not feel the most heat. It looked like cloudy but it is not, it is by the smoke from the fire thus covered the sun. There are no blue skies for the past few weeks and can barely see the mountains. There are no much outdoor activities since the air was very hazardous and too risky for the health.
After a month the firefighters able to contained the fire but sadly to say that some of them lost their life in trying to save the forest and the people of the area.


she is 3mos old in this photo

Roxy is a mixed Boxer/Labrador or a boxedor; she is five months old now and getting bigger everyday. We got her when she was 2 months old; she is so pretty and so playful. The first month that we have her was good because she is not doing anything that annoy us, but as days go by she is always having a transformation from a quite puppy to being so playful and overly excited. She is becoming annoying by always biting us or nibbling or jumping, she is so hard to control especially if there are kids inside the house. With her behavior we decided to put her on a puppy training class so we can control her. The training is not only for her but also for me as I learned how to control her. Now she is doing pretty good and not so annoying anymore.

Crate Lake, Oregon

Hi guys! It’s been awhile since I updated my activities, was busy of doing things around the house and watching for my pup. Last weekend we went to Jacksonville, Oregon to visit mom-in-laws friend, we dropped her off at her friend’s house and we stayed at the hotel, it was not a good stay coz we heard noise from the next door and also the movement of elevator going up and down. The hotel was supposed to be a 3stars but for us it is not.
The whole day of Saturday we went to Crater Lake and was so fascinated by the crystal blue water, the first time I ever seen a blue lake, it is so nice! I really was enjoying the view and feel the beauty of God’s creation.
