MBAPs June Party Treat

The MBAPs June celebrants had a birthday treat last Sunday at Jody's residence in Cainta. Though the party treat a month late due to conflict of skeds and our demanding Mommy work duties, it was finally celebrated last Sunday of July. Anyway despite the rain, the MBAPs came in full force together with their husband and kids. The Mommies had a grand time with chika and picture moments at the dining area, the Daddies busy drinking beer and playing poker games at the grage area while the kids ... the kids busy playing inside the playroom. Ideal set up don't you think so? Over all, the MBAPs ladies had so much time bonding together. Shared so much wifey stories, shopping wish lists, weight loss pill secrets and laughter. Believe me, it was a great Sunday spent with fab ladies!

property buying at NC

I received email today from my cousin in based in US about a North Carolina property they are interested to buy. She told me that they found a great deal from The Dean Agency offering, Outer Banks foreclosures on the net. They've been considering getting a quiet place to relax, preferably an oceanfront condo-type of property as their retirement retreat from the hustle and bustle life in the city. I think they found the perfect place for them at Corolla NC at Whalehead Beach complete with golf course and shopping malls to suit their lifestyle. Based on the description and picture of the place, it looks heavenly and very relaxing. Truly happy for them and I hope their bank loan will get approved soon so they can move to their dream house.

good news for the family

Received good news from my aunt based in NY that her research paper was selected for oral presentation in the Gerontology Congress in Paris this July. We are really proud of her! Imagine, not only she'll be able to do some sightseeing and shopping in Paris, she'll do her case presentation in the study of Geriatrics (for the elderly) which she truly loves. Really, wow! I was told geriatrics is a booming field in medicine in the US. This is one of her reasons why she decided to focus her studies on elderly. As per my aunt, the US government prioritizes the health care benefits of the senior citizen's or elderly. As a matter of fact, they even encourage individuals, not only elderly to avail social security disability in preparation for their sickness or retirement. Like Allsup,a leading provider of financial and healthcare service to people with disabilities. It boasts a record of 98% proven success rate for individuals who comppleted the SSDI process. Wish our government and private health provider be as active with the geriatrics and disabilities benefits like in the US.

Anyway, congrats Tita Glo! Really proud of you ....
