My Aging Parents



Chic eyeglasses for my parents

Are eye problems hereditary? I quite researched on this but I can't find any clear cut answer but my parents do wear reading glasses now that they are above 50's. My other sibling wears working eyeglasses too since she works with electrical designs while I work with computers.

Eyeglasses in the Philippines may vary in prices and in quality. So, it is a nice thing that there are $ 8 Rx eyeglasses that can be purchased online. There are cheaper glasses but tend to break off easily and strain more the eyes. How You Can Start Spending Smart ? I guess quality counts more. I don't mind paying more for something that is worth it.

My favorite high fashion eyeglasses for my parents are the ones I picked up for them. They will sure love the simple but elegant frames. Some old folks prefer safe and conservative colors.

Feeling Guilty as Mother

my sweet kid

One thing I envy among mothers who have the opportunity to be a fulltime houswife and mom is the time they can spend with their family which is quite impossible or limited among working moms.

I did attend to my kid's school activity today and he ranked one of the least performing students in class academically. And, as a teacher for more than a decade, this is quite frustrating and saddening.

So, to all the fulltime moms,congrats! Being a fulltime housewife and mom is not all easy but quite fulfilling.

I wish I can have this difference once I resigned from job and concentrate on my business.

Partners Affect Your Lifestyle


my younger sister, Mary Ann and her boyfriend on a vacation

Do you really believe on the adage, "Opposite attracts?" Personally, I don't go for this. I want of course that I share the same interest and principles although not at all times.

But, what I don't like is how your partner can actually influence your decision, lifestyle, and dreams. I guess, we can blame this to L-O-V-E.

My sister and her partner have been complaining of their weight but they seem to enjoy eating and dining a lot. hahhahahahha! They tried going to the gym and taking best weight loss pills but still they struggle.

I think the bottom line here is that you are happy doing thing because you are with your loved one and that's more important.

Pet Names for My Sisters

My younger sister "Pangeg," which means toothless

I have this nasty habit of name calling as my way of showing affection. But this applies only to my loved ones. What became a child's tease became a a love name for me. I called my other sister, Tammy, "Daping," because of her not too prominent nose.hahhahahha!

While I called my other sister, "Pangeg." Well, lucky for my youngest sister, I called her "Yang," for her name "Xeria." Funny though that after decades, the pet names remain. My sisters could only wring my neck. hahhahah!

We Are Sleep Deprived

My EC drop partner has left for Zamboanga City to send off his eldest brother for States. I feel like sad for him since it would mean, he is the only one who is left behind since all his direct family is in USA already.

So, I endured the long nights that I have to drop Entrecards and update my blogs. Of course, I manage to watch Korean dramas in between blogging and dropping that sleep summed to only 5-6 hours only.

After a week of sleep deprived, I am having unwanted eye bugs and more pimples that I began placing acne product to reduce and eliminate these.

Worst, regardless of how early or late I sleep, I always wake up at the same fix time. arrrggh!

Fun Driving with Sibling

An adult learns new skill a little late than younger ones. I find this statement very very true. When my husband asked me and my son to learn how to go inline blades, mountain biking and driving, my youngest sister who is in her junior high school was all excited to join us. She and my kid indeed learned faster than I did.

We both began to learn how to drive our motorcycle but she was all skilled now because she manage to practice a lot and she just has that guts. hahhahahhah!

I however, managed to drive with her around the city and it was more fun than driving alone. Soon, if my other younger siblings will go home, I shall be teaching them too. hehehheheh!

We Miss Our Family Sunday Recreation

One fun Sunday on inline blades


Before classes started last June, we seemed to have marked our weekends for recreational activities. I remembered we still played inline blades, bikes, jogs and swims together with the rest of the households.

But, with hectic weekdays from jobs, these fun weekends have been replaced by regular watching of TV and manning the store.

Now, my bulges are getting heavier and thicker because of immobility from regular office sits and works. Sigh! We really wish we can go back to our old ways or else I have to best diet supplements consider to remove the unwanted lumps.

What I always love with family recreation is that they make the moment more fun and memorable.

My Nephew Will Be Away

The youngest member of the family shall be away for a week or more and my old folks are becoming senti since their little bundle of joy will be far from them. hahhahaha! Our little cutie!

We have become so attached with my nephew because everyday he drives everyone nuts with his cute moves, whining, and laughs.

We hope he wont stay long in Manila. Her mom would just have to work on the new business my other sister is planning to have.

We will surely miss our little bugger.

Our School Boys Get Sick Often

It is rainy season in the Philippines and poor those kids who have to endure the bad weather just to go to school. Worst, if their classmates get sick, the others get infected too.

My kid and nephew would have to hurdle allergy, flu and colds in between school days. And medicines in the Philippines are not at all that budget friendly. It is however, helpful that Medifast discount are given that savings can still be made from these unwanted costs.

Economic recession adversely affects family budget and expensive medicines usually hit harder. This is the very reason why the Cheaper Medicine Act is highly anticipated by Filipinos.

Family Business

My sister and I are planning to put up another business. We are still however, evaluating all our options.

Eventually, I will give up my new work and just work on my potential business. We just have to plan well so that resources will not go to waste.

My mom is our guide too, although, the reset of the family would want me to stay in my job for steady income, but I am not at all happy with the meetings and paper works, not counting personality conflicts of people I deal with. sigh!

Well, I have to plan well, then. Good luck to us!
