Saturday Night at Alfredo’s

We haven’t been going out recently, and on Saturday morning, I was quite surprised when hubby suddenly decided that he wanted to have dinner out that same evening. Wow! What’s got into him? He’s been such a workaholic and I’ve asked him several times before to take that much needed break sometime! Well, this is refreshing!

Anyway, we had great steaks that night at Alfredo’s at Tomas Morato. It was a good time to be away from work, just being together for a few hours. After dinner, of course we had our usual coffee at our favorite spot… Starbucks of course!

My Bubbly

“Bubbly”
by Colbie Caillat

I’ve been awake for a while now
You’ve got me feelin’ like a child now
‘Cause every time I see your bubbly face
I get the tingles in a silly place

And it starts in my toes
And I crinkle my nose
Wherever it goes
I always know
That you make me smile
Please stay for a while now
Just take your time
Wherever you go

The rain is falling on my window pane
But we are hiding in a safer place
Under covers staying dry and warm
You give me feelings that I adore

And it starts in my toes
Makes me crinkle my nose
Wherever it goes
I always know
That you make me smile
Please stay for a while now
Just take your time
Wherever you go

What am I gonna say
When you make me feel this way
I just mmmmm

And they start in my toes
Makes me crinkle my nose
Wherever it goes
I always know
That you make me smile
Please stay for a while now
Just take your time
Wherever you go

I’ve been asleep for a while now
You tuck me in just like a child now
‘Cause every time you hold me in your arms
I’m comfortable enough to feel your warmth

And it starts in my soul
And I lose all control
When you kiss my nose
The feeling shows
’cause you make me smile baby
Just take your time now
Holdin’ me tight

Wherever wherever wherever you go
Wherever wherever wherever you go

wherever you go
I always know
‘Cause you make me smile
Even just for a while

I’ve been down so low
People look at me and they know
They can tell something is wrong
Like I don’t belong, well

Staring through a window
Standing outside, they’re just too happy to care tonight
I want to be like them
But I’ll mess it up again

I tripped on my way in
And got kicked outside, everybody saw…

And I know that it’s a wonderful world
But I can’t feel it right now
Well I thought that I was doing well
But I just wanna cry now
Well I know that it’s a wonderful world
From the sky down to the sea
But I can only see it when you’re here, here with me, mmm

Sometimes I feel so full of love
It just comes spilling out
It’s uncomfortable to see
I give it away so easily
But if I had someone I would do anything
I’d never, never, ever let you feel alone
I won’t, I won’t leave you, on your own

But who am I to dream?
Dreams are for fools, they let you down…

And I know that it’s a wonderful world
But I can’t feel it right now
Well I thought that I was doing well
But I just want to cry now
Well I know that it’s a wonderful world
From the sky down to the sea
But I can only see it when you’re here, here with me, mmm

And I wish that I could make it better
I’d give anything for you to call me, maybe just a little letter
Oh, it could start again, oh oh

Well I know that it’s a wonderful world
But I can’t feel it right now
Well I thought that I was doing well
But I just want to cry now
Well I know that it’s a wonderful world
From the sky down to the sea
But I can only see it when you’re here, here with me, oh

And I know that it’s a wonderful world
I can’t feel it right now
I got all the right clothes to wear
I just want to cry now, cry now
Well I know that it’s a wonderful world
From the sky down to the sea
But I can only see it when you’re here, here with me, mmm

And I know that it’s a wonderful world
When you’re with me

Newest Skirts in Fashion

Here’s something I just received in my email…. it’s so hilarious I just had to post it right here!

What you see below are not see-thru skirts.
They are actually prints on the skirts
to make it look as if the panties are visible.
And these are the current rage in Japan

  

  

I was so convinced that I had to check the net to find out if this is true.    Well, it isn’t.   According to Snopes, these images are “simply digital fabrications to which someone attached a fanciful explanation”.  So boys, it’s not a trend, don’t keep your hopes up!  LOL!

 

Miranda Cosgrove

I like watching movies a lot, watching television a lot too. Most of the time, my interest in actors and actresses would end right there. When the tube is off, they’re gone.

Lately I found this one particular teenage actress very interesting. Her name is Miranda Cosgrove.   She’s just a year younger than my eldest daughter, and she’s very pretty.   My two younger kids watch her shows a lot!

The first time I saw her was on the show of Drake and Josh. There she was a pretty naughty girl who found it fun to put her brothers in trouble. She portrayed her role very well! Then recently my children began watching her iCarly show. Even my little 5 year old girl watched her show all the time. In this show she is entirely different from Megan of the Drake and Josh show. And she sings very well! I liked her iCarly song Leave it all to Me, and sometimes I would find myself humming to the tune of the song every now and then.

Then I saw the video of one of her songs “Stay my Baby” and I was really impressed! She seems to be growing up very quickly, she sings very well and she is definitely turning into a very beautiful young lady!

Anyway, here’s that video of her song “Stay my Baby” from YouTube. I like this video and song a lot I just had to share it with everyone! 

Casper and Daffy

Sometime last July, we got our new pet, a black labrador retriever. We gave her the name Daffy. She’s such an adorable puppy, so playful and so hyperactive.

In the beginning, we were quite worried that our Japanese Spitz Casper would get jealous of Daffy. He had too little patience, and she pestered him a lot. We put a muzzle on Casper for a few days, but eventually took it off so he could freely play around with her. We had to keep an eye on both of them to make sure he doesn’t hurt her at anytime at all.

Well, as of this time, they’re ok together. I’m glad, and relieved too. Somehow, Casper has gotten used to Daffy, and Daffy already knows when Casper is in no mood to play around with him.

Here’s a little video of the two dogs playing together…

Sonicflood Live In Manila

Allow me to describe this concert in one word…. BEAUTIFUL! 

I never knew the Sonicflood group before.  When I saw the ad on TV a few weeks ago about their coming to Manila, I really wondered what they were like.  I’ve never watched a Christian Music concert before, so I asked my honey if we could go to the concert to watch them on August 15.  At first, he was quite hesitant, simply because he didn’t know the group either.  He read about them on the internet, and thought they might be interesting too. So we invited my mom to come with us to the concert, and she gladly said yes. 

The concert was awesome!  They were really good!  Not only were they good, but they had everyone on their feet clapping and singing along as they sang their songs.  If you wanted to enjoy and see them well, you had to be on your feet too, because almost everybody was standing all throughout the show!

 Their lead vocals, Rick Heil related his story how he struggled with an incurable intestinal disorder for years, and by his faith, he was healed!  The most touching moment of the event was when they sang a song that almost everyone knew… the song “HERE I AM TO WORSHIP”.  He invited the audience to come over at the front of the stage as they were prayed over by other people, pastors, friends and other people in the audience.  It was so beautiful until the end!

Here’s the video of the song HERE I AM TO WORSHIP, which they sang at the concert, from Youtube

I just renewed my driver’s license yesterday.  For those Filipinos who intend to renew their driver’s license, these were the costs and requirements that were asked from me yesterday, when I went to have my Non-Professional Driver’s License renewed at the LAND TRANSPORTATION OFFICE (LTO main) located at East Avenue, Quezon City

LICENSE TYPE:   Non-Professional Driver’s License

Requirements:

1.  THE OLD/EXPIRED DRIVER’S LICENSE FOR RENEWAL.  You need to present your old/expired Driver’s License as you go along with all the procedures.

2.  DRUG TEST.  The cost of the Drug test is Php 250.00.  Before you can fill up the application form for Driver’s license renewal inside the LTO, you have to take the drug test.  There are several medical laboratories along East Avenue, right across the LTO.  They will take your urine sample and you can wait for the results right away.  After that they issue you a receipt for the amount you paid for the test. 

3.  MEDICAL EXAM – Next is the Medical exam were they get your height, weight, and give you a Vision test.  The cost of this is Php 100.00.  You also wait for the results and will be issued a receipt for this test. 

3.   APPLICATION FORM FOR RENEWAL.  After the first two procedures, you proceed to the LTO building to fill up your application form.  You obtain the form from the Customer Assistance booth, where they will give you a number, and the application form that you need to fill out. 

4.  PHOTOGRAPH.  When your number is called, you will present the documents – the drug test and medical test results, and will be asked to wait to be called so that your photo can be taken and your specimen signature can scanned.

5.  PAYMENT FOR RENEWAL.  After your photo and your signature has been taken, your name will be called by the cashier, where you will pay the required amount for Driver’s license renewal.  The following is the breakdown of the cost of renewal that I paid yesterday:

                           License fee:               Php 180.00

                          Revision of Records:           30.00

                         Comp. Fee:                           67.63

                         Total:                           Php 277.63

Note:  The Revision of Records was charged for the change of address on record.  I believe that if there is no change of data from your previous license, there will be no additional charge of Php 30.00

6.  CARD RELEASING.  After payment has been made, you will be asked to sit and wait for your name to be called to receive the new card type Driver’s License. 

The whole process took less than 2 hours before I finally received the new license card.  Office hours at LTO is from 8am to 5pm.  I heard that if your documents are not in for processing by 4pm, the new license card will be released the following day.
