I Have A Crush

I am going to share something funny and weird about me on this blog, since I write most of my secrets here...lols.. But please promise not to tell anyone..lols.. I HAVE A CRUSH!!! with someone that I work with. hehehe

There are actually bunch of cute and gorgeous looking men at my work. I had few crushes but after a while, I am used to be around with gorgeous men. I may not have a husband as gorgeous as them, but I find him cute though..lols..

Two days ago, I dreamt..., Well his name is "Jerry"... shhhhhh!!! I dream of his face. He is just a normal cute guy like anybody else, so I actually don't find anything special about him. But not after I dream of his face... hahahahah..

Just sharing my funny thoughts!! It's fun to have crush again after soooooo many years. I have never felt this kind of crush on any man since my first year High School with my first crush. Funny but it reminds me how it feels like to be a teenager again... heheheh!! What about you, do you have crush while being married to someone you really love?

Balance Of Life For Men and Women

We all know that we should strive to balance our lives. We need to do things in moderation. But what you should do to improve differs depending on which direction you naturally head in. For those who work long hours and focus much of their attention on their career, greater commitment to their relationship and family time must become a priority. But for those whose focus is the family, greater time working outside the home actually increases the health of relationships and family life.

Studies find that the balance work life and personal life is consistently different for men and women. Most women express more satisfaction with their family as they work more hours ourside of the home. Most men express less satisfaction with their family life as they work more hours outside of the home. (Marks, Huston, Johnson and MacDermid 2001)

The Importance of Future

When relationship has a successful history, some may imagine that the work has already been accomplished. But that is no more true than imagining that successful gardeners can skip watering and fertilizing for the year because of their good track record. The fact that you have experience and confidence in your relationship means that you know what needs to be done. It does not mean that you can ignore things that needs to be done because you've done them before. The task of a successful relationship never ends because the point of a relationship is to build toward the future, not the past.

Satisfaction in a relationship is 8 times more reliant on recent feelings and the ability to perceive improvements than it is based on the history of the realtionship.

Negative Thoughts About Viral Linking

I am sorry for not posting the viral linking that Winnie, have invited me over. I have few issues on this kind of tag. I don't think this is necessary in creating backlinks. I also don't see any fun doing this viral linking. You have to realized that too many open links can put down the score of your site.

Also, I have few bloggers who are probably included on the links of this viral linking tag, who never do the tags I am passing to them. So I'd rather give my linky love only to the person who link me on her post and perhaps those fellow bloggers who will join the fun of the tags. I am so sorry for being negative about this type of tags. Again thanks to Winnie of Ramfam for including me on her tag. Have a great day to all.

Why Dogs Need Salon?

My dog is starting to shed because the weather is starting to change. It getting colder and drier. I need to bring her to the pet grooming salon. Funny but I seldom go to a salon but my dog needs to go there at least every 3 to 4 months.

At first, I find it silly and waste of money but I realized how much time it saves me for constantly cleaning the house. I used to clean our basement before and after I go to sleep especially during winter and summer season, where our dog sheds a lot of fur. But after we brought her for the first time in a pet salon, I realized how much time it saves me for constantly cleaning our house.

Having a dog here in Canada is far different from my home country. It's more expensive here and a lot of blablablabla. If not for my kids, I probably have send our dog to the animals adoption center, long time ago. Kids said that our dog is their real bestfriend..lols. Oh well, I will call the pet salon now for the appointment.

We Went To Scarborough

Today we went to Scarborough to buy my daughter, Kim, a guitar at Long and McQuade. She has been asking me to buy her a guitar and want to learn how to play it. I am glad that she wants to learn how to play the guitar instead of spending long hours on the internet during the weekend.

After that, we went to Brimley and Sheppard to but DVD movies. If you live in Scarborough, you will probably know if it is legal or illegal to buy DVD's there...lols... I'll keep that from here..lols.. Then we went to a Filipino restaurant nearby and bought some of our favorite Filipino foods for take out. Now I feel bloated....lols Have a great weekend to all.

How To Stop Children's Back Talk

At first, they look and sound so cute when they begin flexing their linguistic muscles but lately, this sounds so annoying and alarming to my ears. Their angelic talks and voice saying "Idiot" and "dump stupid head" isn't cute and silly anymore. It's rude and disrespectful. It is a parent's responsibility to teach their children how to express themselves in ways that are respectful.

We must understand that they learned all of these from television or on playground at school. They don't necessarily mean to hurt feelings with their words but just imitating someone. I don't take it to heart if my daughter call me a "big-butt" (maybe I do lols). She probably just repeating a phrase she heard somewhere where she thought I might find funny or silly.

Getting angry and punishing a young offender is a very common mistake for a lot of parents which makes the child angry inside. I try to reponse to the rudeness by saying "That hurts" or "please don't talk with mean words like that", then I add a clear warning about the consequences of using that language again. If discipline is really necessary, it should be something that you can follow through with.

Older kids shut their mouth for different reasons because they've learned how to use words for maximum impact. They have better understanding of other's people's feelings and this is their way to assert independence. If your child's expression are starting to get out of hand, let the least offensive words go without comment (dont call attention) and let more disrespectful phrases like "Shut UP" garner a punishment. And if your youngster continue to speak in an offensive way, you may consider removing what and where they are getting it from like the TV. Because even cartoon shows can teach them disrespectful phrases.

I Will Dance Salsa With My Boss

We had a grand meeting at work about 3 days ago and it was a little bit funny and annoying at the same time. One of our company department will have a campaign for United Way donations and the campaign will includes some fun like singing, dancing and many more, all for the company employees.

Our big boss is so down to earth that he is willing to join some of the fun, if will be joined by one the employees. So the he ask for a volunteer on who is willing to dance Salsa with him. I was so embarass that some of the people on my department pinpointed and shouted my name. And he look around and say "Where is ESTER"...lols.. I joke and said "I am here, Sure why not, we can dance hip hop too"...lols

I thought that it wasn't a serious deal and he will forget about it since the fun will be next month. (Too far still).... Ahhh unfotunately, he visited my department yesterday and ask one of my colleague, where am I. I wasn't there at that time and he just said to my colleague to tell me that he can't dance hip hop so he will just find someone to dance hip hop with me instead...lols.. My colleague told him "OH !!! Ester has been practicing Salsa already".... Oh my Lord, I am really in big trouble here!!! Now I have been practicing Salsa every morning ...lols..

New Hospital In Brampton

I was so dead tired yesterday because I have to bring my father to the hospital for his cataract operation in Brampton General Hospital. I didn't go to sleep after work until about 5 pm. My head was spinning because I did my blog hopping before I go to bed. Good thing that my boss approved my vacation for one night, so I slept my butt out the whole night.. lols..

Brampton General Hospital just opened last year and I was suprised to see how huge it is and cool interior design. They have over 730 beds (and still growing. It is one of the largest community hospitals in the province, located in the northwest Greater Toronto Area and only 45 minutes from Hamilton. They provide programs and services to nearly one million residents in the growing and diverse communities of Etobicoke and Brampton. They also offer a dynamic multi-cultural community life, a strong and solid curriculum, enhanced learning environments, community based care and one-on-one mentorship.

My father is okey now. The cataract operation took about 20 minutes and another 20 minutes for the recovery. No bandage as I am expecting and he can walk right after the recovery. He will have another eye surgery sometime next year for his left eye and will be done again here in Brampton General Hospital.

Free Reader's Digest Widget


Me and my family love Reader's Digest. We are actually receiving a monthly delivery right infront of our house. But we are sometimes frustrated when the delivery do not come on time, when everybody else in the world have read what's new inside the Reader's Digest. About two years ago, it was only me and my husband who fight who's going to open the Reader's Digest once it arrived on our door. But lately, our kids are also waiting for the Reader's Digest delivery every month.

My kid's love RD Laughs Main portion and they always have it stayed on their minds until the next day, to share it with their friend at school. I am so glad to find the Reader's Digest website because I dont have to fight with anyone on my family to read my favaorite Reader's Digest portion about health and wellness.

One great thing that I've learned about their website, is the fun of putting their free widget on my websites. My kids also have their own blogs, and I am sure that they will be happy to put the Reader's Digest widget on their blogs and be able to read their favorite Reader's Digest portion right on their own blog.

To put the widget on your personal webpage, simply downloads it from ReadersDigest.com Widgets. You can even add the widget on the facebook app, show off your propped photos and discuss your favorites with your readers.

Shopping The Whole Day

Busy shopping with my kids today. We are at the mall almost the whole day. First we went to Yorkdale Mall. I bought my leather boots at Aldo. I also bought winter scarp and leggings. I grab the opportunity to buy my skin care product, Proactive loose powder and Sheer Tint moisturizer at Yorkdale Mall.

I was supposed to buy my girls their winter jacket and accesories like scarp, gloves and hat but only few boutique sell winter items at this time, so there is not much choices to choose from. We just decided to come back sometime next month, perhaps a lot of stores will be putting out winter items by then.

Then when we got home, my friend call me and ask me to meet her at the International Center, about 10 minutes away from our house, because there is a huge sale for signature beauty items and perfumes. So I went there together with my kids again. I bought 4 perfumes. 1 Perry Ellis 380 and 1 Green Tea perfume for me; 1 15th Avenue Elizabeth Arden for my niece in the Philippines, which I will send on December; 1 Eternity for men and 1 Dunhill perfume for my hubby on his birthday.

My kids pick few items for them like nail polish, earnings, bracelet etc but unfortunately, the line on the cashier is too long so they just decided to let all those items go. I feel bad since my kids didn't got anything for themselves. So I just treat them to their favorite fastfood restaurant, MCDONALD!!!! hahahahah!!!

What An Idiot

I have a very frustrating night at work with my idiot fellow Filipinos (not all). I am so sorry but that's how I really see them and I am sometimes ashame to be one. Leaving here in Canada for almost 9 years, made me see how we (filipinos) were brought up to be shy and no freedom to express our real thoughts. Isn't it good? Perhaps it is, if compare with other races who are so absurdly loud. But to prefer to keep everything in one place and just go with wrong flow, just made me want to say "WHAT AN IDIOT!!!". This will never solve the problem but make it worst. Perhaps they don't realize it because they are Idiots!!.

There is this one fellow who try to act as if he knows and can manage the flow of foolishness that has been going on with this full of politicians. But mind you, he is just one puppy who just say "yes" and never say "no" not to his real master, but to someone just his level... "WHAT AN IDIOT!!!". Perhaps he is threathen that I will steal his position as an IDIOT Feeling BOSS. Crazy but that's just how he feels but the truth is, he is just one slave IDIOT like everyone else!!!
