My Obsession

One of the things that filled my life with happiness is collecting vintage teacup sets. I am absolutely obsessed with these beautiful and gorgeous teacups.

Interestingly, vintage or antique teacups still enduring its beauty and value where many collectors are dying to own these pieces mainly for their dainty designs and of historical value.

As a collector of vintage tea cups, I am profoundly elated with my obsession. Actually, I was able to collect 60 sets of Fine Bone China tea cups from manufacturers like Royal Albert, Royal Stafford, Queen Anne, Wedgwood, Edwin Knowles and many more.

It is quite challenging and exciting to acquire a piece of vintage tea cup set mainly because of limited sources here in my place. Though I was able to buy in some surplus stores but  products are few due to a large volume of customers. I therefore spent some amount of money to buy those pieces with long standing testament to timeless style and elegant craftsmanship through Etsy.UK and its fulfilling.

With my collections, there is no such thing as a boring day if one is surrounded by these pretty, gorgeous and fabulous vintage cups and saucers which are so lovely and not meant to be hidden away.

A Dream Fulfilled

I was once dreaming of knowing how to bake and decorate a cake. My memory still serving me well since I still remember during younger days which I had this lilttle envy to some of my friends who were equipped with baking tools that probably made them easier to bake a cake.

Honestly, I was once fascinated with cakes but it was a bit difficult for me to buy one because of money constraints. Yes I celebrated birthdays in my early life without a cake to slice that even on simple cake my widowed mom can not afford to buy. 

Believing in the thought of having a cake in your birthday is a grandiose celebration that is why I felt a bit sad when celebrating my birthdays without blowing candles in the cake.

Now when looking back to my younger days, it keeps me motivating to achieve the things which I dont have. This is the reason why I am painstakingly learning and practicing baking as well as cake decorating through watching videos in the internet. It is a self learning yet fulfilling because it helped me achieve my dream.

As I gaze upon my cake creations, I can not resist but have the feeling of being in cloud nine. I never thought I can make almost a hundred cake designs in one year of baking. This made me realize that nothing is impossible if you only have the courrage to do the things you want to do.

 

Aside from a learning experience, establishing good relationship with clients and earning income contribute a colorful journey in life's day by day events.

Think Before You Click

  • Mood:

I am disappointed with how some people manage to react on issues circulating in the social media. Pointing out to those who are not critical thinkers who easily react or share issues without scrutinizing or digging deeper its roots. I am referring to fake news sites or we call it satire sites and some are hoax sites trying to make chaos in the news society.

Today, it is but obvious the irrisistible surging of these fake/hoax/satire sites that popping up faster in the social media. I know these sites are trying to play with gullible people who easily react or believe that the news is true. Tendencies are,  they quicly share or react to the issue without looking at the source because they believe that the news is really true.

Now if you have that critical thinking, you dont easily believe into it but rather do the check and balance so as not to be fooled by an invalid news from a fake news sites.

Sometimes if not always, we have to be responsible in every action we are taking into because our actions tell us what kind of persons we are. Do you like to be called a gullible one? If not, then think twice before you click or else you will be a victim of cyber bullying.

HEALTH iS WEALTH

  • Mood:
After a long two-day trip, my body's resistance went down which left me susceptible to flu. I had a weak workweek due to coughing, sneezing,runnynose and headache but even though, I still go to work. Some friends adviced me to take a rest but I insisted to work since I feel much comfortable working than resting because it makes me weaker when spending more time lying or sleeping at home. Thanks to the meds I took, it helped me lessen the burden plus some water therapy which of great help in releiving me from flu. Now, I realized that maybe I lack excercise and Vitamin C to make my body's resistance stronger. So from now on I will make sure that I can spare some of my time doing healthy regimen because HEALTH IS WEALTH.

For.............

Smelly hands ......


*don't throw squeezed citrus since it can be used to deodorize your smelly hands after holding fish or things with foul odor.

*If the odor of onion is hard to eliminate in your hand...rub it in a stainless steel spoon while washing your hands in the water.

Ant control.........

* Put ground cinnamon in the area where the ants house.


* Mix 2/3 cup water, 1/3 cup vinegar and 2-3 tablespoon dish soap and put it in a sparing bottle and spray in the area where the ants pass.


Natural Mosquito Repellents

* rub the body with rubbing alcohol and rest assured mosquitoes won't dare to bite you.


*Put  Vick’s Vaporub in your leg's area to avoid insecg bites.


*Mix the same amount of pure vanilla and water for a mosquito and tick repellent.

Social Networking not a fad

  • Mood:
Almost everyone in this world is now hooked to internet because of social media networking. Many reasons why people choose to spend their golden hours in the internet and tucked away from the supposedly regular chores in their homes or even in the office.

On the other hand, I personally disagree labeling social networking as a fad. It is not like a whim nor a fashion that maybe called a passing fad. Yes primarily, social networking is our way of making and building friendship  to many people around the globe. Connecting friends old and new or making it as an online dating site.

For some people like me, I see social networking as a primary business tool. It provides connections and prospects that can be of help in promoting your business. It is imperative for people engaging into business to stay up to date of the latest trends of online marketing and internet use in general.

Admittedly, working performance of some employees or even study habits of students are greatly affected because of the internet evolution. I myself can attest to this since  I feel guilty to some point where instead spending my time to doing household chores yet hooked to internet.Sad to say that irresponsible use of internet will only eat out  quality times that is supposedly spent to more important things that has to be done.

Yes, internet evolution has made life easy but at times you might be a victim of few corns that came along with this revolutionary facility. So, be cautious and responsible enough in using internet and see to it that the site you are hooked is right for you.

To a Dear MAMA....

  • Mood:
Today, a day before mothers day seems getting me to a gloomy feeling, maybe because I can't celebrate mother's day with my beloved Mama Inday beside me tomorrow Mothers Day. It's my long time dream to be with her, eat with her, chat with her and even laugh with her on this special day for mothers. I envy those who have their mother's beside them because they have their mothers who always listen to them and comfort them when frustrations and disappointments trigger.Though how lucky I am, I still have my mother alive which I can still enjoy her company when time permits us to be seeing each other.
I was touched by an advance mothers day message sent to me from a friend Doc. Rey Salinel which said " give your mom a big kiss and a hug for me and tell her thank you, kasi  kung hindi dahil sa iyong mommy, hindi kita nakikilala".. thanks so much doc Rey for this message, if only I can kiss and hug my mom, I will do so, tightly.
Anyway to my Mama Inday, thank you so much for the immeasurable and unending love. I still can't forget how you sacrifice the hardships when I was in college just to give me your all out support in reaching my goals and aspirations.    
God is really good, He answered our prayers, but I still have this ultimate goal...which is to give you a comfortable and happy life....Happy Mothers Day mama...I Love You so muchhhhh mwahh mwahhhh

Water for a healthy life.

  • Mood:

I realize how vital water in our health  is when I personally witnessed my sister's suffering from a urinary tract infection. It made me feel guilty because I too usually do not drink water as much as eight glasses a day as prescribed by doctors.The scenario pushed me to buy a tumbler for water container and obliged my self to drink. Now I am glad and confident about my health upon religiously following the exact amount of water to take everyday.

Drinking lots of water everyday is therapeutic in a natural way. It prevents, treats and rehabilitates for the improvement of ones  overall well being.

Remember, the benefits of drinking right amount of water everyday is the key to a longer, healthier,and a more vigorous life.
