The Changing Christmas Wish List.

Have you drafted your Christmas wish list yet? I have but it isn't still final as I find it changing almost everyday. Aside from it getting the list longer because I keep on adding items every time I see new stuffs online, the placing of the top wishes on the list also changes because their "I want" degrees vary. I can't settle with my ultimate wish yet. At one moment, I'm wanting a DSLR the most but after a thorough self-deliberation, I'm drooling over a new laptop then later, yearns for a new cellphone or a new Patek Philippe watch. I'm confused really because I simply want them all. I hope there's a way for Santa to give not just one but all of the items I'm wishing that are on my list. LOL.

Yoiks, I lost my files!

Have you ever lost important files on the computer that you couldn't completely retrieve anymore? Well, earlier just this year, my external hard disk conked out. It is where all of my digiscrapping kits and masterpieces and most importantly most of the birth photos of Asher were saved. Luckily, I have uploaded my digiscrapping masterpieces on to an online gallery. I learned my lesson the hard way. Since then, we've backed up our files through burning them to DVDs.

Photo Overload.

Our digital camera has never been overused as this since we bought it last year. The cam's CD Picture Card flash memory gets easily overloaded with photos of none other than the little boy. If you get to see my Flickr and Friendster accounts, recently uploaded pictures would always be of him. We also have them printed so you could just imagine how many albums we have already filled with prints aside from the online galleries that I maintain. And he hasn't turned 1 year old yet. I take fancy and I'm so addicted taking his photos almost everyday because as young and as little as he is, he already knows how to exude his charm in front of the camera. A potential model in the future? Why not!

When we were preparing our wedding three years ago, most of our suppliers were scouted and booked through the various bridal fairs we attended. Whenever a friend asks for tips regarding wedding preparation, I always tell them to attend bridal fairs as they are already a one-stop-shop for all their wedding needs. Much more, they can get the coolest promos and discounts that could save a large chunk off their wedding expenses.

Online Learning.

My younger brother has been having a blast since his semestral break (from college) started this week. He's now bumming at home spending most of the day in front of the computer playing online or if not, playing his Playstation. Having a grand time, right? Well, he deserves it after a much pressure-filled and stressful semester. He's now on his third year (start of majoring year) so he was really busy with projects and feasibility studies. He reminded me of my college days. I also took up a business course and we were so beaten up with lots of projects and studies about entrepreneurship. Hard, yes but I actually miss school life. I miss the review sessions, having classmates and just the thought that I'm learning a lot makes me fulfilled. It is in this light that studying again crosses my mind and pursuing a masteral degree in business is being considered. But my being a stay-at-home mom state doesn't permit to enroll in real universities so I'm thinking to take up a degree online.

One of the most sought after online universities these days is Capella University. Existing since 1993, they are one of the education leaders in providing masteral and bachelor degree programs in business, information technology, education, human services, psychology, public health, and public safety. They serve more than 20,000 students across the globe so from which part of the world you are, a high-caliber academic excellence can be attained through Capella. Just recently, they buzzed that they're the only online university to offer a graduate degree program with a state-approved specialization in reading and literacy. Check out their latest ‘Inside Online Education’ podcast at for more about this buzz.

Baby Shower Cake.

My former boss, who's now my sister's boss, will be surprised with a Baby Shower tomorrow. She's due to give birth any time soon and I think will be on Maternity Leave starting next week. Right now, they're working with the procurement of unique baby gifts and finalizing on some party details. I helped them with the baby shower cake hunt. I initially referred my favorite cake artist, Emily Uy of Sugarbox, who made our wedding cake and Asher's Christening cake, but unfortunately, she can't accommodate my delivery request. Luckily I stumbled upon one at Multiply whose creations and styles are similar to that of Emily's. So far, she's very prompt and accommodating with all our queries and request. I will be posting her site and rave about her if the cake pleased their taste buds and if everything goes well tomorrow. Here's our requested design from the cake artist. It'll be almost as is, except that the feeding bottle is excluded and the lining will be in pink.

Run for the Impressions!

Visual Talking is really cool. I'm thinking of posting one VT message again on my blog soon.
