Happy New Year Folks..Right now, it's 10:20PM here in my place. It's getting closer and it's gonna be 2010. We're watching the New Years count down at Times Square, New York City while eating popcorn in our couch. I just sneak to post and greet you all. This will be my last post for year 2009. So I am wishing you all a better life, happiness and more blessings this year 2010. Anyway, my new years resolution is to slow down my eating habit so I can meet my target weight, after giving birth I'm having a hard time to bring back my shape. Wish me luck! Again, Happy 2010 to all..

One of my dream is that someday I will be a businesswoman. I want to manage my own company. I want to be a successful entrepreneur. I keep asking myself what would be the perfect business line for me. Actually, this is the toughest question that until now I do not have any answer. How do I start? What kind of product would I sell? What is my target market? And where is the right location? These are the questions that I need to figure out in order for me to achieve my goal. Right now, I am starting to gather information and try to make a feasibility study of a certain business line. Who knows maybe one or two years from now I got lucky and finally I have it. I know I have more time to think about it. I just want to follow the step of my parents. I admire them so much for setting a good example. They have a small businesses that until now runs pretty good. I want to be like them someday.

Anyway, if you are planning to promote your business in a trade show or any market. You must have a complete set of materials to place your product and make sure it looks presentable to your target customer, for instance trade show boots, exhibit truss, pipe and drapes, table covers, flooring, banner stands, trade show furniture, stages and stage skirting, graphic tents and canopy, trade show lights, light boxes, brochure holders, hanging or overhead display, crowd control, presentation tools and design or layout of your business or product. If you have all these definitely you are good to go in a trade show. You do not have to worry because having these materials your promotional tactics will become easy, organize and perfect. Also, these tools will help your business noticeable in public and will attract more customers.

I want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to the following:

Out of curiosity, I pulled out and read the history of Santa Claus over the net. I want to know what's the story behind this Big Guy. The fact that he is famous to all children worldwide especially during the month of December. So I decided to post Santa Claus history summary. If you want to read the full details of Santa claus history visit this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Claus

Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas/Sinterklaas, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle or simply "Santa", is a legendary figure who, in many Western cultures, brings gifts to the homes of the good children during the late evening and overnight hours of Christmas Eve, December 24[1] or on his Feast Day, December 6 (Saint Nicholas Day).[2] The legend may have part of its basis in hagiographical tales concerning the historical figure of gift giver Saint Nicholas. A nearly identical story is attributed by Greek and Byzantine folklore to Basil of Caesarea. Basil's feast day on January 1 is considered the time of exchanging gifts in Greece.

While Saint Nicholas was originally portrayed wearing bishop's robes, today Santa Claus is generally depicted as a plump, jolly, white-bearded man wearing a red coat with white collar and cuffs, white-cuffed red trousers, and black leather belt and boots. This image became popular in the United States and Canada in the 19th century due to the significant influence of caricaturist and political cartoonist Thomas Nast.[3][4][5] This image has been maintained and reinforced through song, radio, television, and films. In the United Kingdom and Europe, he is often depicted in a manner identical to the American Santa Claus, but he is commonly called Father Christmas.

One legend[which?] associated with Santa Claus says that he lives in the far north, in a land of perpetual snow. The American version of Santa Claus says that he lives at his house on the North Pole, while Father Christmas is often said[by whom?] to reside in the mountains of Korvatunturi in Lapland Province, Finland. Santa Claus lives with his wife Mrs. Claus, a countless number of magical elves, and eight or nine flying reindeer. Another legend[which?] of Santa Claus says that he makes a list of children throughout the world, categorizing them according to their behavior ("naughty" or "nice") and that he delivers presents, including toys, candy, and other gifts to all of the good boys and girls in the world, and sometimes coal to the naughty children, on the single night of Christmas Eve. He accomplishes this feat with the aid of the elves who make the toys in the workshop and the reindeer who pull his sleigh.[6][7]

Merry Christmas everyone!!! I hope you have a wonderful christmas..

Last day December 20, it was my daughter's 5th birthday, we went in the Christ Gospel Tabernacle Church to pray and give thanks to our Almighty God for all the blessings that we received from Him. After that, my husband decided to treat us for Lunch at Texas Road House Restaurant. It's a country restaurant obviously from Texas. I've noticed most of the stuff are old and made of wood like walls, chairs and tables with photos of famous country singers. It looks inviting though. Also, the foods are fantastic and yummy. Want some?

My daughter and I celebrated our Birthdays together last December 17. It was my birthday and her is today. I asked my hubby to bake a cake for us so we can have a simple family celebration. As you can see, we have a fabulous home made chocolate cake baked by my industrious and sweet hubby. I was assigned to decorate the top. It was my first time, I don't know when to start and what style to put on but in the end I figured it out and it's kind of fun. I really enjoy it though. I think I did a pretty good job on this eventhough it's not that perfect. Maybe I need to practice more and learn some other style so I can enhance my knowledge in decorating cake. You know what, baking cake is very easy job though you must have your own oven in your kitchen and make sure that you also have the complete ingredients and materials in the table. It's a win-win job. I am telling you, you're going to like it. Just be ready and patient to tolerate the pain in your arms because thats the worst part of it. My arms are shaking and tired of squeezing the icing but I am glad it turned out pretty good.

Yummy for our bellies. My daughter likes the flowers so I served it on her plate. Believe me, she has a good appetite because she ate it all. She ordered us not to touch the flowers because that part was for her only. Hmm..Who's the boss? I think Dad did a good job!

Goshh..I'm 30 years old now. Time really goes quick. It's unbelievable, I am getting old. Well, goodbye to age 20's welcome to 30's. Seriously, I will make sure my 30's moment in this earth will be more exciting, many adventure and more fun experience. I will enjoy my life to the fullest. You know what, when I was in my age 20's, I set goals in my life status. I told myself that when I reach the age of 30, I should accomplish this and that. Guess what, I achieved it. Actually, I never thought it would be possible until then I realized it really happened. I reached all my goals and I am very lucky. It was amazing! Unexpectedly, God blessed me with so many beautiful things and happiness in my life. Now, it's time to set another goals again and make it happen by the age of 40. Wish me luck!

Here's my beautiful 5 years old girl. She is very smart, funny and adorable. I decided to celebrate our birthdays together so we can prepare for my son's baptism on January. We need to be thrifty so we can have a perfect budget for Christmas day and baptism. Anyway, I am proud of her self development. She learned a lot from school. She is very competitive little girl. Good job baby doll!

Checked this out folks, My daughter met Mr. and Mrs. Santa Clause at St. Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church. The Church had a morning breakfast to all Catholic member in our district before and after the mass. The purpose of this morning gathering is to meet other people living in our neighborhood. Anyway, we always attended the early Catholic Mass around 10 O' Clock. My daughter lined up with other children to hug, kiss, and talk to Santa. She also brought her drawing of Barbie Masketeer in a yellow paper and hand it over to Santa. She showed it to let him know the kind of gift she want to receive this Christmas. Isn't that funny?


We had a simple family celebration last December 11. My son is two months old. We have cake and ice cream on our table. We sang a Happy Birthday song to him. My daughter did the honor of blowing the candle, thats her favorite part of all. I am very happy to see him growing fast. His a good looking baby. I'm so proud of him. But, my little boy is sick at that time. He got colds from this freezing weather. He got runny nose and cough so his kind of cranky and until now his not yet feeling well. My hubby called the Pediatric office to report his condition. According to the nurse, there's no medicine available for my baby's age. They usually never prescribe any medicine for young babies because their body still fragile. She asked us to buy bulb syringe for his runny nose and use infant drops to help his breathing problem that can be purchase over the counter. Then we did, thats the one were using right now. Aside from that, I did my own researched on the internet about how to take care of a sick baby. I know I have my daughter so I should be more knowledgable about it but, as parent, I need to learn more and refresh those health information. To be honest, I forgot some of the pointers, the fact that my daughter and son have 5 years age gap. I need to recall all the details again. Anyway, good thing I did it because I remember now that I should use Humidifier or vaporizer everytime my baby is sick. In that way, my son can able to breath well. We purchased humidifier at BabyRUs store which kind of expensive but I don't care as long as it's useful and helpful. Right now, were observing his condition and hoping soon he will be fine and be back on shape.

Happy Birthday young boy..Get well soon..
