This year, aside from the usual toys, clothes and promotional products she received lot of books. Books from Santa (backyardigans and strawberry shortcake) , teacher, her ninangs (ballet book and activity books), Kuya (backyardigans and strawberry shortcake), aunts (dora, barney and some activity books) and hubby's parents (bible collection 12 volumes). With all the book gifts, I am afraid her present book shelves will not be enough to accommodate her gifts. Haayy...need to sort out her old books to create more space for her new book collection.

Very timely for summer outings.

For weeks now, I’ve been craving for Dampa seafood. Remember my previous post how I love to eat shrimps, crabs and squids … crave no more! Last Monday, hubby and I decided to pig-out (which we normally do!) by ordering to go meals from Dampa Libis. Since our helpers decided to have a holiday-off, hubby and I drove to Dampa Libis to get our ever favorite, buttered garlic shrimps and crabs. Imagine, just the three of us for dinner … we ordered a kilo of each just to satisfy our seafood cravings. Oh so yummy and oh so bad! Not your healthy way of cooking food. And with so much fat from all the buttery food, we neutralized our palate by ordering grilled squid. An attempt to healthy cooking with so much guilty eating cholesterol and fats that day. Hahaha!
Regretfully, I forgot to take pictures of the said seafood feast. With so much excitement and hunger from our take-out order, we immediately attacked and enjoyed the food. Hahaha!

Samantha happily playing with her new toy
And now the Mommy is pressured. I need to shop and replace Santa's gift again. I've been thinking several gift options such as the Chicco vanity kit, the Barbie playhouse, or an Aquadoodle. No definite idea yet. I am hoping these items still on-sale at Richwell. Otherwise, I might end uo getting her colorful ipods. Hahaha!
Luckily, I just need to replace one gift. As soon as she saw her V-tech toy, she didn't bother to snoop the contents of the other TK shopping bags. If she dug further... she might find all her Christmas presents inside. Gifts from Mommy, Daddy, Kuya and Baby Jesus. Haayyy...still lucky indeed.

Burning fats has become a multi-billion industry worldwide. And it has captured the imagination and vision of everyone. From manufacturing equipment, to medical advancements, all these lead to one thing … to burn fats. Now, fat burner come is various shapes and sizes. It may be as simple as taking diet pills or to as complicated as medical procedures to rid ourselves of the unwanted fats.
But with all these innovations, the best and most effective is going back to the basics… the basics of eating the right food. fat burner is most effective if there is “less fat” to burn. Hence, eating the right food the body need, makes the easier for the natural “fat burning” activities a normal person does. Because a person tends to burn fats the natural way. And if this still fails … then fat burners are always available right off the shelves.

I leave you with all the details about my new love here.
For the meantime, I need to check online for term life insurance quotes for my Mom. I was told she was offered by our distant relative a life insurance quote from a local insurance provider company. I am quite apprehensive about the policy or benefits offered to her. Need to check if she really got a good deal out of it.
That are tended with great care,
By those who work unselfishly
To make the place more fair.
And, like the garden blossoms,
Friendship’s flower grows more sweet
When watched and tended carefully
By those we know and meet.
And, if the seed of friendship
Is planted deep and true
And watched with understanding,
Friendship’s flower will bloom for you."

The downside, with all the excited shoppers like me trooping the warehouse sale, expect long (as in) line at the cashier. I think we spent almost three hours here lining up and filling up our shopping cart (and boxes). Truly a tiring experience. With all these crazy holiday shopping, I might need to have my arms and shoulders checked. With the endless shopping hours, while heavy shopping bags in tow I am afraid I might need pain pump soon to alleviate my shoulder pains. Hopefully not this drastic.
Anyway, just a tip for the TK Sale : bring a companion to line up in the cashier while you shop in turns for shopping efficiency. Happy Shopping!!

But as much as the TV has given everybody a view of the world, it is not only the beauty has been seen. The negative side has always been the counterpart of beauty. The television has also managed to depict the darker side of life, thru the violence portrayed by the TV. News from all the corners of the world showcases calamities, wars and even death.
Nevertheless, tv has impacted our lives today more than anything else (except for Internet perhaps). It has molded how we live our lives thru the information we derive from it. And it only goes to show how unbiased the TV is … it delivers to us the real scenario … be it good or bad.
