What Movie Is Your Love Life Like?

Your Love Life is Like Pretty Woman

"I want the fairy tale"

You believe that love is truly blind, unpredictable, and surprising. Two very different people can easily find true love.

At least, that is how it will happen when you marry a gorgeous billionaire someday ;-)

Your love style: Sensual and flirty

Your Hollywood Ending Will Be: Surprisingly happy

Well, I couldn't agree more. It actually says it all and if I may just add, Pretty Woman is one of my favorite flicks of all time. I just have to quite disagree with the "flirty" love style. I'm more of its contrary that I'd rather keep silent of my feelings that do the first move and give hints. Maria Clara, huh? And yes, I'm a sucker with happy endings. It dawned on me that it's quite a while since I last set foot on a movie house that I've even forgotten how does it look like..nah, just an exaggeration, of course. Honestly, I don't have the spare time yet to go out. Perhaps, a relaxing dvd marathon at home with hubby cozily snuggling each other on a home theater chairs will do.

Random Things To Be Thankful For.

Here are the small blessings that are worth thanking for today:

1. Cream-O Sandwich - satisfied my hungry pang this noon.
2. Online tasks - when it rains it pours. This means more bucks coming to my paypal soon.
3. Play gym - keeps the little one occupied and entertained while I work.
4. Twitter - I'm getting in touch with the outside world. I haven't gone out in a while.
5. my Papermate pens - my Starbucks planner still looks presentable and neat because of them.


That's what I need while I finish all these assigned tasks today. Have done a few but I'm still far from the finish line. I'm not actually in the mood today hence with the seemingly non-sensible output. Perhaps a short break will do. I need a breather. And my tummy's grumbling, too. While I go grab a bite check out an entry I made about trust issues and gps tracking on my main blog.

Almost Done.

Four down, just two more to go. I'm referring to the signatories of my clearance from CVG. Yeah, it's exactly a month now since I resigned and still, I am not cleared yet. Well, apart from procrastination, I didn't have the luxury of time to do it and recently lack the "help" since we're nannyless in the last two weeks. There's no one to look after my little one at home so I can't go out of the house. Not unless, I'll bring him just like how I did yesterday. I brought him along with me in the office to check on my sister who replaced me at my post at the same time process my clearance.Upon seeing the little one, everyone got delighted and crowded over him. The little one behaved well and amused them of his non-stop-blabbing antics. He wasn't grumpy and all that's why I didn't have a hard time even when I'm having my clearance signed by the Facilities and Finance Groups.

After a month since I resigned and left, it feels good to actually be back to the workplace I've got accustomed to for about two years. Just seeing my workstation, my former pedestal drawers, all those things that used to be mine, and even those neatly stacked CAT5e cables underneath my desk...bring back all the memories of my stint at CVG. I quite miss working in the corporate world but nothing beats my current profession which is being a stay-at-home mom.

Anyway back to the clearance thing, I hope to finally finish them by next week. The nanny's coming back so I'll have the chance to do so. I have to have this done asap so I can get hold of my final paycheck already.

On A Hunt.

..for a family van. The search is on and we've started scouting one today. We went to a quality used cars shop in Project 7 along EDSA (beside a patio furniture boutique) this morning and found considerably good ones. My in-laws are now discussing on how to go about the financing thing and all. I hope everything goes well so by Kylie's baptism this month end, the whole family will have a nice and cozy long ride to Pampanga.

I really do hate it whenever a zit suddenly springs out on my nose tip. It's just so annoying because out of all the empty spaces and palatial nooks of my face, it lands on a region where it distracts my sight. And even if it's not Christmas time yet, you get to be Rudolph the reindeer prancing with a red nose. Hope this disappears soon.

What do you usually apply on zits? I'm just not sure if this is true but I read somewhere that Apple Cider Vinegar is effective and is even the best acne treatment as a home remedy. I'm hesitant to try it out for the fear that it might become just worse.

So Into His iPOD.

I'm itching to digiscrap at the moment but cannot do so since the external hard disk where all my kits are organized is with the husband. He's synchronizing songs and newly downloaded artwork albums to his iPOD. Oh yes, that's what's keeping him busy on the computer these past few weeks. Downloading mp3s and artworks then organizing all its details - song titles and artists must be correctly spelled and in title case format, no unnecessary spaces and characters,and must have its correct album artwork uploaded. Yes, that's how OC he is with his iPOD. And I bet, he'll be such until he's consumed all 80GB space of his iPOD Classic. He has just passed the 7GB mark, so way to go my dear hubby! You still have about 70 gigs of space to fill in.

Speaking of iPODs, I laud Apple for a cause that they just recently launched. A special edition, iPOD 8GB Nano red, is now out of the market in support of the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa. For every purchase, Apple will donate $10 for the said cause. Ain't that cool? Chic fashion and noble cause in one.

Horsey- ish.

Anyone knows where to buy a wooden rocking horse? I'm helping out a friend hunt for one because her toddler son has a penchant for horses..not the real, big live horses yet but anything horse is now his delight. He has horse stuffed toys and books on horses. So now he's craving for that toy wooden rocking horse he saw on tv. I wonder if he'll continue this interest as he grows up. Who knows he might become an expert horse back rider in the future or go into the world of equestrian. Oh well, if this would be the case, my friend needs to save up because equestrian clothings and stuffs and moreso a horse cost so much.

Alpha's Some Q's.

And yet another snagged meme from Alpha.

What makes you laugh?
My boys' funny antics and Manny Pooh-quiao.

Who is your hero?
My Dad.

Who would you want to be tied to for 24 hours?
Hubby and Asher.

How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Just 2, the rest are slip-ons and flip-flops.

Who do you blame for your mood today?
I'm hungry again even if I just took my lunch..blame it on my tummy...Lolz.

What is something scientists need to invent?
A superjet that would make a Chicago travel completed in just a few minutes.

Have you ever broken a bone?

Do you watch local news? Why?
Yes. To keep me updated of what's going on around me.

How big is your bed? Big enough?
It's actually a bit small.

Missing SMS.

My mobile phone is acting up lately. I am not sure if it has to do with my provider or the phone itself hinting that it needs a replacement after serving me for 3 years. My sister and a former colleague have complained why I wasn't replying to their text messages yesterday. Well, how would I reply if I didn't receive any SMS from them. I tried turning it off and powering on the phone again but to no avail, the messages still didn't get through. I'll escalate this to my provider since I also noticed that my signal suddenly weakened these past few weeks. Perhaps it's needing a cell phone repeater or some other device to boost the signal or perhaps there might be a transmission problem from their end.

Need A Haircut.

David's Salon's advertisement is being currently aired on TV and this reminds me that I need to have a haircut. Asher's now practicing his grabbing skills and my long hair is not spared from his hands. I hope I'll find time this weekend to visit my favorite salon nearby. I just also hope that they now have enough hairdressers and stylists because the last time I had an appointment with them, I waited for an hour before I was served due to lack of manpower. The owner said that she was having a tough time recruiting for good stylists that can meet the standards of the salon and that of the customers. If only, she said, there is a job placement website like then she's saved. This website is created for the purpose of connecting salon and spa owners with qualified applicants of beauty salon jobs. This is set up exclusively for the beauty industry and is free of charge. This is owned by Regency Beauty Institute and they aim to help their students launch a fruitful career by bridging them with its industry partners.
