Bonifacio Day Parade/Cainta’s 438th Anniversary

Since it’s a national holiday we’re complete in the house except of course my DH whose job never seems to have holidays except for Christmas, New Year and Black Friday. Yes, that’s the only holidays they have in their company whose one of the known appliance store in the country. We waited for the big parade but when it finally came it wasn’t what I’m expecting for. Several years ago the Nov. 30 parade which celebrates two occasions – Bonifacio Day and our own town 50th anniversary foundation (fiesta). I’m expecting more content in the parade but I surmised that life is really difficult these days that’s why they only have simple celebration.

Anyway the parade consisted of chosen people in various barangay, some women’s organization, some colleges and schools, some companies in our town, there’s also a fraternity group there with long line of group chapters. Forgive my thoughts but I was in a trance with the theme of the parade and I’m wondering why they’ve included different kinds of never ending Ati-Atihan groups which solicits money while on parade. It showcase a group of gays scantily clad in women’s underwear with black paint and dancing to the tune of Ati-atihan dance without a hint of the real native dance. The real Ati-atihan natives would be disappointed when they get to see these imitators.

I’m just glad that there are bands of musicians in the parade representing primary schools which included my kids’ and my Mom’s school of course. They’re in their best costume and effort to bring music and the little majorettes were simply cute. They’re my daughter’s classmates. I love music and I enjoy seeing different musical bands with their specific instruments which seems to be a heavy load for them especially the drumset lol! They’re good and they’re well practiced. It’s a good thing that they come in different groups to balance the long parade.

I also like the exhibition of motorists who presented some heart falling stunts, I just love the 5-year old rider whom I’ve seen also last year. Some of my shots are awful as people walked in front and sides of the parade obstructing cameras from taking a nice shot. At the end of it I was surprised to see a group representing KKK and finally I was relieved that indeed it was a Nov. 30 parade. I was hoping that I will see more but that’s all there is.

:PH#188 - Technology (Quintum)

Click images for a larger view

This is Quintum equipment (white one) which I'm very familiar with because it's one of the many equipment used in my previous work in telecommunications company. This is used for VoIP (Voice over Internet Phone) switching solutions. This is commonly used by start-up VoIP service providers like my former company.

P.S. Atop the quintum is a router which we are very familiar with because we used it so we can use the internet simultaneously with other users. Another good technology.

Mellow Yellow Monday #1 - Gen Loves Yellow


My daughter Gen loves having yellow colors around her. She loves yellow shirts, yellow hankies and she even loves cutie Sponge Bob! She loves playing with her younger brother Josh and his toys rather than dolls and she loves playing farmville. They say she's the exact replica of me because she got some of my looks, my simple ways, my being sporty and many things about me. I tell them she's prettier than me because she's got pretty smile and dimples! Hahaha All Moms think the best of their kids, what do you think?

It's my first time here! Happy MYM to all!

Reusable Shopping Tote Bags

4As the climate and environment seem to be acting abnormal nowadays the concerned people and some government entities are calling for us to preserve our environment. It means that we should preserve natural resources like trees, rivers and lands. We should be aware also solid waste management. We should try minimizing garbage and promote recycling of products. I’ve been watching some shows about this one and been reading online when I saw these reusable shopping tote bag which promotes the ‘Go Green’ movement.

At Mother Earth Fundraising they’re selling eco friendly products which can save most of our natural resources like oceans, lakes, rivers and soils. I learned a lot from the site and you should see and read for yourself. Check them out at

I browsed online for some ideas and after various surfing and looking please see what I’ve found, a Louie Vuitton Diaper Bag Bridal Shower Cake, oops not for newly born but for bridal shower and it’s not a bag but a cake. Could it be that the bride will also give birth as soon as after the wedding, just looking for clues anyway!

What Does Your Walk Says About You?

Your Walk Says You're Approachable

You are outgoing, funny, and friendly. You love attention, and you make sure everyone knows when you enter a room.

Other people see you as humble and down to earth. You don't put on airs.

You are careful, thoughtful, and detail oriented. You tend to test people's patience, but your patience pays off.

You are a kid at heart. You love to have fun and believe that life is for living.

This makes sense to me as I'm really an outgoing and very friendly person that even our messengers and janitors in the office can be my lunchtime mates lol! I'm not choosy about people's status as long as they're kind and honest. Try this one out if you want - here!

What Motivates You?

Women love shopping and it’s actually ok as long as it’s qualified in your budget, if not think twice and thrice before indulging yourself. Sometimes we shop because we think we need some clothes, shoes or bags but most often than not we don’t need it. I’ve read somewhere that some women shop endlessly whenever they feel insecure on their looks, on their weight and sometimes when they feel that nobody loves them.

So shopping becomes the solution for emotional turmoil women are feeling for themselves. So why shop and spend lots of money on it then afterwards you’ll still feel the same emptiness inside you. Would it be better if we talk to our closest friend and try to seek an advice? Or do something to make you feel beautiful, plan a simple diet plan that will slim you down. Sometimes the solutions can be easier and cheaper too!

Cute Little Purse

This Little Twin Stars purse & pass card holder with strap item reminds me of my school days when almost all of our purse, stationery, pens, hankies and girly items are from the Sanrio characters. I had one like this not of the expensive kind but almost same in style and colors.

When I came to see this online at I immediately looked for the price as I would want it for my youngest daughter, it looks so cute to me and very convenient to use. It’s only US$5.90 and shipping is free but when I show it to Gen she wanted a different one. It reminds me that the new generation now have their own favorite characters and since Gen is already 10 years old this purse would be too cutie for her. She’s also not so fond of girly items.

Give Me Five foods you never want to eat.

1. All kinds of bugs: some considers it as a delicacy but it's yucky for me!

3. Snake: can't bear to look at it, it's so ew!
4. Chili: I can't stand the heat on my mouth if eaten directly but if put into soy sauce it can enhance your dipping soy sauce.

5. Eating Ginger and drinking its juice..... I can't stand the taste and smell no matter how good it is to condition the throat and voice, it can give you a beautiful voice or it can maintain the beauty of your voice though I used to saute it in some dishes I know.

I'm a Treat not a Trick!

You Are a Treat

As a kid, you didn't cause too much trouble, and the adults adored you. Now that you've grown up, not much has changed.
You know that a little sugar is the way to get what you want in life, and you are as sweet as they come.

You like to make things better in the world, and you don't mind following rules... no matter how silly they may seem.

You are a truly good person, and there's very few of you in the world. Anyone who knows you is blessed!

Actually sometimes I'm a trick!!!
