More on HVAC Repair from now on

After long consideration, I finally decided to quit my job to fully maximize my time with the kids. I quit not to be a full-time mom (not yet!) but to take advantage of working within office hours, saying goodbye to stressful 24/7 shift rotation and embracing every Sunday as my rest day from work. 

I believe God has made a perfect plan for us, leading  to a much flexible working time and environment that will eventually open up for future business opportunities that I have been dreaming of. I am very much thankful for my Five years employment in the Gaming Industry working with the team that  provides IT services on round the clock operations, and for the good and bad experiences and people I have met along the way.

I don't want to be mushy right now, reminding myself that this is after all the best way for me to spend my time. The goal is to spend more time with the kids, less travel time to work and of course, be stress-free. Starting next month, I will be working on a small family business that caters HVAC Repair and maintenance. I am looking forward and excited on my new working hours, which is from 8am to 5pm only, where I can spend all my sleeping and waking hours with the kids that seldom happened because of that shifting schedule.
It will be more on Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning works this time.
Well, I consider this career shift a wise decision for me to focus more on  personal commitments and priorities as a mother. I am  thankful  that I get to realize and take this step before they've all grown up.

Dinosaurs Island Park in Clark Pampanga

This is an overdue post weeks ago, when I accompanied my preschooler going to Clark Pampanga for their educational field trip. The trip's main attraction was going to Dinosaurs Island. At that time, I was too busy with my work schedule and house chores (plus the baby!) that I didn't even bother to google on any reviews on what to expect with the place. When being asked by my curious and excited little boy, I answered that what were gonna  see there were Dinosaur statues,  they were prehistoric creatures and ofcourse, they're not real.

I have no idea at all that those dinosaurs, aside from giving an exciting adventure to children, will also give a little scare and can make small ones cry because of fear. Why? simply because they recreate the past mesozoic era using animatronic technology.

Cheap Homecoming Dresses

My top time waster nowadays would be no other than... Facebook! That ever popular social networking site that provide updates and sometimes juicy gossip that displays on our news feed. Well, I guess some people wanted to share it all, and really speak what's on their mind or simply wanted to announce every detail and brag (agree?). But on the positive note, social media is a great help to get in touch with family and friends despite our busy schedule.

The site makes it possible to get in touch with our good old   friends in school many years way back. I am very much please to see how's my friends been doing after so many years, and be updated from time to time on what's happening with their lives. Constant updates lead us to organize a "class reunion" as to personally keep in touch and spend time to reminisce those good old days. 

But ofcourse, like everyone else, I wanted to be at my best self when that event takes place. That's twenty beautiful years since we graduated from grade school. I don't intend to show-off; just making the moment more special and remarkable, I just felt the need to choose from  dressfirst.com of what to wear. I find a hard time choosing from those cocktail dresses. I wanted a simple yet elegant dress but, considering my budget, I look for cheap homecoming dresses and got this one that matches my style:

A-Line/Princess V-neck Knee-Length Chiffon Charmeuse Homecoming Dress With Ruffle Sash (022015735)

This is gorgeous... a great steal. This comes in different colors and sizes, and they offer free worldwide shipping. Hmn, somebody's got really excited and looking forward for that class reunion.... Well, I think I deserve to dress up a little once in a while to feel good about myself while catching up with friends.

Where to use SM Gift Card?

I recently won a Php500 worth of  SM Gift Card from our Company's Christmas raffle, fair enough, they let me have my prize despite of  me not being there during the raffle draw. Ei, I'm on night shift duty, definitely not my fault... right?!

This can be use in in over 500 branches of The SM Store, SM Supermarket, SM Hypermarket, SaveMore, Ace Hardware, Ace Builders, Baby Company, Kultura, Our Home, Forever21, Uniqlo, L'Indochine, Stefanel, Suiteblanco, Sports Central, SM Appliance Center, Surplus Shop, Toy Kingdom, Watsons and SM owned branches of Nike, Adidas, and Levis.

I think I will be using this on SM Supermarket, that's less Php500 on this week's grocery cost. Considered a little something but appreciated much! 

Christmas 2013

What does your child think of Christmas?

For them, Christmas means receiving  gifts, thus having  more toys depending on Santa's nice and naughty list. Mostly, Santa plays a big role this season, but let us not forget to teach our kids what this celebration is all about. 

It is the coming of our savior Jesus Christ. 

Traditionally, we set-up our Christmas tree and we celebrate Noche Buena with the whole family.

And ofcourse, it ain't complete without giving and receiving gifts... 

Holiday rush was all over places especially on shopping malls, where bonuses spent like magic~  poof! gone* hahaha. Anyways, have a blessed Christmas everyone!

Using Cloth Diapers for the First Time

After reading blog reviews and positive feedback on Cloth Diapering, I decided to give it a try. I started using cloth diaper when my baby turns 5 weeks old. My first brand was Next9 which I bought at Festival Mall in Alabang, I bought it for Php999 for a set of 3. At that moment, I don't have the time to look for other stores that offers cute and girly designs, so I ended up having these three solid colors:

I adjusted the snaps to three different sizes.
