I Love To Bake!

One of my interests aside from blogging and scrapping is baking! When I had a conference chat with my 2 close friends from the Philippines, somehow baking came into our topic and they reminded me that I am the only one among the group who loves to bake! Yah, even as a little kid, I was helping out my mom making cakes from scratch. Since then, I couldn't get away from the oven. Well, mostly simple recipes like cookies, muffins, cake, pies and cheesecake. The only thing is, I can't stop eating! That's why I have to limit myself from baking,hehehe! Here's one strawberry cake I baked recently!

Science Is Not My Thing!

Science was never my favorite subject. I don't know...somehow I find it complicated but it can be interesting at times especially experiments and laboratory stuff, that for me is interesting! But once you go back to text book...that's when my mind shuts off,LoL! But seriously, science is really a major factor in our life! It helps us understand a lot of stuff and the best part is having a breakthrough medicines from gradual researches. Well, I have to be grateful to some of the laboratories out there doing research since that's how my husband makes his income. He does services for different pharmaceutical and laboratory companies. One of the leading laboratories that creates life science products is Biosynthesis Inc. and they produce synthetic peptide. They have 20yrs. experience of designing peptides using state-of-the art technologies. For any scientific products, check out biosyn.com!

She's A Toddler Alright!


Now that she's 20months old, she can be a really hyper and tricky! She can express simple words and wants and even follow instructions. It's pretty amazing how my li'l toddler follows my commands on picking up her toys and she knows where to put it back or go get your diapers and wipes, all the simple ones...I found this really cool site to do so many activities with their right age! Here's one of a great activity for my 2omonth old:

Learning Skills

  • Fine motor development
  • Problem solving
  • Social interaction

What's Wrong?

Your toddler is still figuring out how the world works when you introduce a game of What’s Wrong? See if she can figure out what’s so silly about this game—and how to fix it!

Materials

  • Picture book
  • Sock and shoe
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Bowl and water
  • Cracker and peanut butter

Instructions

  • Collect the items above, or other items that can be turned around, upside down, or made to look different than usual in any other way.
  • Hold your toddler in your lap. Hold a picture book upside down and begin to read. See if your toddler can figure out that the book is wrong and fix it.
  • Put a shoe on your toddler’s foot, then put on the sock. See if your toddler notices what’s wrong and tries to fix it.
  • Put toothpaste on the back of the toothbrush instead of on the bristles. See if your toddler can figure out what’s wrong and what to do about it.
  • Pour some water into a bowl and tell your toddler you brought her a drink. See if she notices the silly container and asks for a glass.
  • Spread peanut butter on a cracker and set it upside down on a plate. See if your toddler turns it right-side up!

Safety

Be sure your toddler can’t get hurt doing these silly tasks.

Paris is Back!

It's been very quiet lately and I was relieved of not hearing anything about her but the silence doesn't stay that long for now she's back! Well, I am happy for her but on the other hand, many neighbors are really mad at a large crowd that created frenzy in her grandparents house. Well, no matter what people think, I am sure glad she was able to serve her jail time and the whole thing made it to the media to serve as a lesson to all kids out there who adore her. No matter if you're an ordinary person or a big celebrity, you should always abide the law!

What Dreams May Come


1. Unforgettable Dream

I saw my bestfriend in a casket and I couldn't understand why she died. I cried and cried. The ff morning that I woke up, I told her immediately about this dream coz in our belief, you will break the curse so it won't happen at all...

2. Scary Dream

I was held hostage by my xbf. In reality, he was quite possessive and abusive so, I guess this explains why I had this kind of dream. He was holding a knife on my throat and we took the elevator with my sister in there and my sister was begging to let me go. I was so scared to death.

3. Funny Dream

I was kissing someone and was so worried how is he going to accept me- having kids and I was like a single mom, the father of my child didn't exist at all. I thought this was funny...for me!

4. Dream House

4 bedroom house, wooden floor only bedrooms are carpeted with island kitchen and lots of arches with red tile roof!

5. Dream Celebrity Date (foreign or local)

Josh Hartnett!

6. Dream Job

Shopping for someone else and being paid a bunch!LOL!

7. Dream you had last night

I don't remember.

8. Dream for yourself

To find my passion in life and make a profit out of it. It would be great to have a job you love to do plus getting paid from doing so!

If found a nice crafty project that you and your family can enjoy! It's a Picture Puzzle perfect for all your family pictures laying around the house! Display them in a unique and fun way. Here's how to make it...


Picture Puzzle

PICTURE PUZZLE


This six-piece desktop decoration showcases family photos on two sides when it's assembled and doubles as a brainteaser when Dad needs a distraction.

You will need:

  • 6 (1 1/2-inch) wooden cubes
  • Acrylic paints and paintbrushes
  • Rubber band
  • Thin black marker
  • 2 photos (3x5 or 4x6)
  • Double-sided adhesive sheets
  • Scissors
  • X-Acto knife
  • Letter stickers (optional)

    Step 1 1. Paint the sides of each cube, leaving the top and bottom bare.

    2. When they're dry, arrange them in a rectangle, unpainted sides up, and wrap a rubber band around them to hold them together. Using the marker, trace the rectangle onto the picture side of each photo, making sure everyone's faces fit within the rectangle. Apply a double-sided adhesive sheet to the back of each photo and cut along the tracing lines. Peel off the adhesive's backing and adhere one photo to the top of the cubes and one to the bottom (since it's a bit tricky, it's a parent's job).

    Step 33. Divide the photos by cutting along the edges of the cubes with the X-Acto knife (another job for a parent). Add letter stickers if desired.

    Great Learning Center

    I haven't been really a good teacher to my 4 year old daughter and to think that I wanted to be a teacher, how can I be a good one if I couldn't even teach my own kid??? I just don't think I have the patience and usually we do the ABC cards and counting up to a hundred but we couldn't really get even half of our counting that's because she gets bored and frustrated when she can't remember something. I easily give up too! If she's in school, I'll be in big trouble having to help her in any of her homeworks or topics that she might be having a problem with...good thing there is a great place to assist your kids in their academic aspects and that is at escore.com! It is an Innovative Tutor that won't only let your kids do well in their school but also keeps them motivated and have the fun in learning so to enjoy and excel in their class! For nearly 15 years they have been doing this to kids and works thru PreK to 10th grades. We will see how my kids will do in school and I will keep this website in mind!

    Weekend Camp Out!

    We had a great family time camping out at David's family farm! It was actually my very 1st time to sleep in the outdoors like a real forest. No kiddin! The 1st time I had it is way back in gradeschool but it was only at school campus...nothing adventurous about that. Next time was in our backyard here and still, not quite real. So, this time...in a secluded forest like place with my whole family and the kids were great! Here's some clips (forgive me the videos are muted, didn't realize no sounds on my digital camera):

    Marshmallows on the fire!


    Just hanging out - taking it easy!

I just hate downloading the videos in the pc and uploading them to the host sites...it is so time consuming but I guess if I have time to take opps online, why not videos of my own kids, right?LoL!

    Background Check

    When I need a phone number for someone and I usually can't remember or couldn't find the number, I pull out yahoo people search and most of the time, I always get what I need! It is pretty amazing what you can do with internet nowadays! Very convenient and so easy to do it! But did you know you can also do a background check of someone? Like not only knowing their phone numbers and address but also their background records, criminal records, property reports, credit report and so many more that are useful tool especially if you want to hire someone! It would be so much better to know who you are hiring. You can do this at BackgroundCheckDirectory.com!



    It will allow you to have basic civil court search, instant criminal search and on premise court search. Know their home and family background by finding out their credit report and even the members in their household or people who lives with them!

How about planning to get a nanny? You don't want to leave your kids to some stranger that looks can be so charming and a great talker. You'll never know their past and who that person really is if you didn't do a background check, right? They have been the leader in public records so, you can find everything you need at their site! Not only that it is a useful tool to hire someone, their US Search Family Finders Program has helped foster children locates their loved ones!!!



    Off For Camping!

    Today we will be leaving for a camping in my ma-in-laws farm. It might sound like not a real camping but for me it is! Since the farm is like more than 50acres and there are cayotes and snakes that I have spotted in that area...kinda freaky for me to spend the night there but knowing that the house is like about 15min. walk, i think I can manage,LoL! It's my 1st time spending the night outdoors, well I mean I've done it before in gradeschool - camping but only at school campus (nothing adventurous about that). Also here in our own backyard, still not quite real camping,hehehe! So, now...I'm looking forward for a great experience with my whole family!!!

    Adventures at Hocking Hills

    We have had countless visits at Hocking Hills and honestly, we never get tired of going over there. There are so many things to do, discover and explore! Last Sunday was just a perfect day since the weather was sunny and the fact that it was Father's Day...I knew he would love to spend it over there!

    As soon as we got there, my eldest was so eager to start the hike! We totally forgot the baby carrier so, it wasn't a great idea to take all the hike going to the cave. We just plan to take short walks and just seize the moment in every benches that we spotted and let the kids explore around...

    As you can see in this photo, both of them are having a fun time taking those steps while me and KT were behind, I made a silly noise every time we took a step and she laughed hard every step!LoL!


    When we arrived at the Cedar Falls, I was bit disappointed that it was too dry and no water falls at all...but it was great not seeing a bunch of people in there, it kinda felt like it was our own spot! So, we enjoyed that moment before someone gets there! The kids loved standing on top of the boulders and as I tried to take a photo of the two...U can tell, Katie doesn't want her sister's arm around her...so cute!!!





    And oh yah, we spotted this snapping turtle too along the way! I was wondering why a woman keeps taking pictures of the water and I didn't realize there was a turtle in there until David pointed it out to me! It was huge and I was so thrilled to see it!











    Me and Katie were both contented sitting on a boulder while hubby and Jessica were both exploring and couldn't sit still. It seems like the 2 of them loves to walk around while the two of us likes to just enjoy the scene in one spot,LoL! Here's another shot of hubby and Jessica while spotting another snapping turtle in a different area but then it was smaller. We assumed it's the baby of the bigger one...









    And as we continue walking, hubby found an area where it wasn't part of the trail, curious enough, we all went down and scoped the place! It was cool to check it out but I soon realize it wasn't safe coz every step was too slippery and in fact, Jessica slipped and fall in a paddle instead of being concerned, hubby and I couldn't stop laughing! Bad parents!LoL! And here's a photo of me in the forbidden area, hehehe!


    Went back up the hill afterwards because Jessica was really cranky! She even screamed so loud crying I think not because she fell but because hubby and I laughed at her, gosh! we just couldn't stop cracking up having that moment engraved in our minds,LoL! So, then we went back to the van and not too far from the place, we spotted a great bridge and so, what's the rush??? Went there to check it out!!!

    You can look down and see the creek. It was pretty cool! And over all, it was indeed another fun-family adventure! Nature will always be a part of this family and I am always grateful for moments like this! Hoping my kids can always treasure this memory thank goodness for digicam to always capture any big or small events in our lives...

    Tribute to My Father!

    I grabbed this one for Darlene and find it interesting to answer and decided to post here. This is just a simple thing about my father...

    1. What is your father's favorite color?

    I actually don't have any idea but I will try to guess it's red because I remember he painted our kitchen with red.

    2. When was the last time you told him you love him?

    I think in a Christmas card I sent out for my whole family. I always have a message for them and letting them know how much I love them!

    3. Your first gift for him.

    It might be one of a crafty stuff we made at school especially in gradschool, we always have parent's day and asked each student to make something for their mom and dad so, I guess it might be something like that.

    4. Describe his personality in once sentence.

    He's totally tough, straight looking face but has a great sense of humor and got BIG generous heart for anyone!

    5. His greatest dreams.

    To be able to get here in US and live in the country, raise some animals, have a garden...he's totally like David!

    6. As his child, what have you done to make him proud?

    Probably being able to marry someone who is responsible enough to raise a family like David and raising 2 kids without the help of anyone, just me and david all along!

    7. Message for your dad.

    No matter what, I will always be the daughter who is very proud of what you have accomplished and what you have done for the family!


    Reno 911

    One of my favorite cable channel is Comedy Central. It always cracks me up when I catch Reno 911 and it has been a successful show knowing that a lot of people really enjoyed it and so they came up with a movie! The movie was a success as well! Too bad I wasn't able to watch since I don't get a chance to go to a theater nowadays having 2 youngsters. For those who missed the movie and even those who have seen it already, great news for you folks! The Reno 911! Miami The Movie has released a DVD! What's great about this DVD is it's totally unrated!!! You wil truly enjoy the widescreen feature with commentaries, extended scenes and so many more!!! Go get yourself this dvd to enjoy the movie! For those who wants to know what this movie is all about...it is truly hilarious! So, if you are up for some cracking jokes and funny scenes, this is the movie for you! You will definitely get a good laugh from all the casts especially the whole gang of cops where each one has a very funny character and definitely not your ordinary cops! Laugh with them as they try to save the day when there was an attack during the national police convention, a bunch of terrorist ruins the convention and the fun part is, it happens during spring break in Miami! For sure it would be interesting to know how they handle the situation and how they fight against the terrorist with their hilarious characters!

    At reno911dvd.com, not only you can find out about the details of the dvd but also play some cool games available online! There are 4 different games that will catch your attention and the Midnight Shootout definitely caught mine! I like playing games to pretend I am the cop and tries to save the day by shooting down terrorists! I used to play counter strike in my college days so, no question there why I chose Midnight Shootout! It was really challenging to see 1st where everybody's at, cops, civilians and terrorist but beware...it's not as simple as that! You will be given a dark screen and just use your memory to shoot out the bad guys, now that's what I call a challenge! I did pretty good having to score 1,200 at the end and the best part, the assault in downtown where you get to use a rocket launcher! Start playing games now and have fun!!!

    If I Were A Spy...

    Have you often thought about being a spy? Just today, I'm thinking how cool it will be if I am a spy. The thrill of solving and putting pieces together and having to hide your identity, that's such an exciting profession but I know it's not always safe. It involves risk including your life. If I were a spy, I'd use all the high tech gadgets available for spies! Would be nice if I have like a watch that I can use as a communicator and a GPS as well,hehehe! Like those stuff in Mission Impossible movies or James Bond movies. Pen that becomes a videocamera or a car that can become a boat something like that are all great stuff a spy can have especially being chased by the bad guys. You may think why am I thinking about this out of nowhere? Well, not exactly out of nowhere...I happen to check out USA Network's Burn Notice a cool tv series that is about a guy being a spy. Watch all the adventures and misadventures he will go thru as being an agent who gets a "burn notice"...that's how spies get fired! Find out how untouchable he is and all the thrills of this show at www.usanetwork.com/series/burnnotice. See how he managed after being burned and trying to find out the reason of his termination while not being able to utilize his contacts and just use his training to get thru. It is such a cool show that is all about investigation, spy, intelligence agency, police and all that.

    Cherry Tree

    Last Friday, we went off to see a farm that hubby has been wanting to buy. It's out in the country and has lots of acreage! That's what hubby wants...and as we scope the place up, we saw cherries in the tree and my kids were really excited to have a piece!

    Katie just couldn't wait to have a piece of it and when she did, she spit it out,LoL! It was pretty sour! Would be cool if we get the place but only one problem, the soil type doesn't allow us to build a building and hubby wants a place where he can build a new house and a warehouse for his business...I'm not sure if something can be done about this so, I don't know yet if we can move sooner or later...

    The Perfect Hotel

    My family and I are always traveling every year for like at least 5 times or more a year! Every time we do so, we always find the best rates and of course not having to give up comfort and great amenities such as the pool, cable, internet and free breakfast. All that are great factors for us in choosing a hotel. For me, a perfect hotel is not only about what the room looks like but it's all about the service, comfort, cleanliness and the rates! We are willing to pay $100 or more if the room is worth it with fridge and microwave and 2 comfortable beds since we have two kids, one for us and one for the kids. I like having lots of pillows too! Sometimes we make use of the pool and of course, it would be nice if they have jacuzzi! Service is very important. If you need something, they will try to provide it if they can and are very courteous and helpful. Above all, everything would be a great package with a beautiful view out in your window! Now, if you are a traveler and always going around the world but still looking for the best deals in hotels and if you happen to have a trip to UK, consider hotelshopuk.com in Finding Hotels in the UK on a Budget!

    The Police Is Back!


    Great news to all those who loves "the police" band! They are now back with their greatest hits releasing their police cd 'best of' selection and has a world tour going on this year!!! How could you not love "the police"? They have awesome songs that are really unique from all the other bands because of their punk and reggae combo style in their music. It has totally influenced other bands and just by hearing a lot of revival songs by some other popular artists from their greatest hits, makes you really believe that they have marked a great history of their music in the world! I grew up in the Philippines and almost everyone there knows who "the police" is! Songs like Roxanne, Every Breath You Take and Every Little Thing He Does is Magic are all known by most people out there and I'm sure it's the same in all the other countries. One of my favorite songs in their new police cd is Every Breath You Take. It is such a cool song that I even memorized the lyrics! LoL! If I hear it play, I play it loud and could make me move into the groove, you know?! I am so pleased to see that they are back once again and celebrating their 30th anniversary with the release of the police in UK! Having a World Tour is such a very exciting thing and if you want to try you luck to win a New York Fly-Away to see The Police live in concert, visit thepolice.com NOW!!!


    3 TIPS TO GET KIDS TO READ THIS SUMMER

    I got to admit, I have not been good at teaching my 4YO daughter to read and I've seen her eager to learn. Now that it's summer, most certainly, I neglect to teach her and so, these great tips will help me get started!

    1. Six books to summer success: Research shows that reading just six books during the summer may keep a struggling reader from regressing. When choosing the six, be sure that they are just right — not too hard and not too easy. Take advantage of your local library. Ask for help selecting books that match your child's age, interests, and abilities. Libraries often run summer reading programs that motivate kids to read, so find out what's available in your area. Also check our booklists for recommendations.

    2. Read something every day: Encourage your child to take advantage of every opportunity to read. Find them throughout the day:

    • Morning: The newspaper — even if it is just the comics or today's weather.
    • Daytime: Schedules, TV guides, magazines, online resources, etc. For example, if your daughter likes the food channel, help her look for a recipe on the network's Web site — then cook it together for more reading practice.
    • Evening: End the day by having your child read to you from the book he is currently reading (one of the six books, above). Have him rehearse a paragraph, page, or chapter before reading to you. Rereading will help him be more fluent — able to read at an appropriate speed, correctly, and with nice expression.

    3. Keep reading aloud: Reading aloud benefits all children and teens, especially those who struggle. One benefit is that you can read books your child can't, so she will build listening comprehension skills with grade-level and above books. This will increase her knowledge and expand her experience with text, so that she will do better when she reads on her own.

When we go strolling at the mall, we wouldn't miss to drop by at any home decor stores and look at the designs of kitchen where we start pointing out which counter top we like most! It is for sure a hard thing to do when the time comes that we are starting to build the house and shopping for one can be a real headache.

    Back to Swimming Lessons Again!

    My daughter Jc, went to a swimming lesson about 2 months ago and has stopped after 5 lessons, missing out a bunch of lessons (well, I mistakenly thought it was only once a week but actually it was twice a week!) Good thing they gave us credit so, I enrolled her back again for this summer and has just started the lesson today. I am honestly not so impressed with their coaching since my daughter is like back to zero with her swimming capabilities, the truth is...she still doesn't know how to swim for sure! It might take a lot of lessons before she will really know how but I am eager to pay the price as long as I can see progress in her!

    The Wonders of Massage

    I am really hesitant to go get a massage because I easily get tickled and would be uncomfortable to go thru the whole thing. But when I knew my friend, Lorena, who used to work as a massage therapist, that's when I started to try having one and fully trusted her. It was one heck of a great time and I felt all the stress taken off my shoulder! Very relaxing and would be wanting for more once you try it! If you are in Michigan, you better visit this traverse city massage that offers Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Prenatal Massage, Clay Cellulite Melt, Aroma Massage, Steam Treatment and so many more!!!

The massage therapist has been doing it for over 5yrs and has attended Austin School of Massage Therapy and most importantly, has the expertise and experience on all those offered services mentioned. Try it yourself and enjoy the benefit of massage! You will feel relaxed refresh being able to relieve all the stress in your body and would definitely go back for some more!

    One Exciting Day!

    It was such a thrilling ride last Sunday when I went tubing with friends! It was actually my 1st time and I was so eager to try it. There was also the jetski but I was more interested in tubing rather than the jetski. The only problem is, I don't know how to swim! But with the lifevest, I pretty much trusted that it will take good care of that problem just in case I'll be thrown off the water...I was actually a bit scared especially when it goes really fast and I held on to my dear life the whole time!!! LoL!!! But still it was such an awesome experience!!! See more of the pics here!

    The Hottest Shades!

    It's summertime once again and when this season is here, I never forget to wear my sunglasses! The main purpose really is to prevent me from getting a headache from the sunlight. Honestly, I can't bare the light during summer that's why it is such a pain if I forget to bring my sunglasses outdoors. Before, I used to be so conscious about the brand names but now, I wear whatever looks good on me. Honestly, I don't mind getting an expensive brand name one but only if it is given as a gift. I think most people look for the style and well of course because of the status when they buy name brand glasses. When kids nowadays see one of their favorite pop star wearing a sunglass like Prada or Dolce Gabbana, they look for the same thing and wants to wear it themselves for the status symbol! I think the best place to buy one is at Discount Designer Eyewear! They have all the name brand glasses like Coach, DKNY, Prada, D&G,Gucci and so many more!!! Find one that you like at a very great price! It is such a steal if you buy it at opticsplace.com and you will be guaranteed to the best quality there is with a secure transactions and great return policies! Get the hip and the coolest or the most elegant and stylish sunglasses now with fabulous prices!!!



    So many things to tackle, I know, but I am just always occupied with taking opportunities online but still I want to maintain an organized house if I can. So, for today I will tackle:
    • bills (that is way overdue...tsk...tsk...tsk...)
    • go to post office to mail all the bills
    • bring my daughter to her swimming lessons
    • clean the pantry and organize (will show photos later)
    • clean and organize the fridge (will show photos later)

    To The Water Park!!!

    Earlier today, I brought the kids to the water park to enjoy the nice weather. Bought some fast food meal to enjoy at the park and when we got there, my eldest was really excited to play in the water but Katie was hesitant to do so...Jessica was getting ansy so, I figured out next time, I should have a swim wear on to join the kids. Later on, she was comfortable enough to go by herself and soon she was running around the place! Oh, how she totally loved it! Nice to have something like that in our town for free! Next time I'll bring my camera with me!

    Debt Solution

    Many people suffers from debt problems that just started out so small and just didn't stop! Debt is usually an easy solution too when you are short on cash and have some projects or items that you wanted to purchase and starts charging it in your credit card. Most consumers think that they can get their way out easily but not thinking of the high interest rates that eats you up and causes you to be burried under debts if you miss one payment after another! This is what becomes a nightmare! Truth about debt, it is really hard to fully understand it. Most will get a debt consolidation that they think it would help them solve their problems but once again, they get caught up with the high interest and usually getting a debt to pay off debt is never the solution! The best you can do really is to get an IVA advice which is called Individual Voluntary Arrangements. To qualify for an IVA, your unpaid debt should be about 15,000 pound or more and you and your partner (if you have any) should be employed. The most important thing is, most of your creditors must be in favor of the arrangement, otherwise it won't work! This can help you pay off your debts is 5yrs and become debt free! No more phone calls from the creditors and the best part, interest and charges from your loan is frozen once the arrangement has been set up! Learn more how this maybe the best solution for your debt problems by visiting thriftyscot.co.uk!

    Chicken Lo Mein
    (from: Rhonda Parkinson)


    INGREDIENTS:

    • 1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
    • Marinade:
    • 2 teaspoons light soy sauce
    • 1 teaspoon Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
    • 1/4 teaspoon sesame seed oil
    • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
    • Sauce:
    • 3/4 cup chicken broth
    • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon oyster sauce
    • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
    • Other:
    • 1/2 pound Chinese noodles (thin or thick noodles are fine)
    • 1 cup shredded carrots (about 1 carrot)
    • 1 unce can straw mushrooms
    • 3 tablespoons vegetable or peanut oil for stir-frying, or as needed
    • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • Salt and pepper to taste, if desired

    PREPARATION:

    Cut the chicken into thin strips about 2 inches long. (It’s easiest to do this if the chicken is slightly frozen). Add the light soy sauce, rice wine or sherry, sesame oil and the cornstarch. Marinate the chicken for 20 minutes.While the chicken is marinating, prepare the other ingredients: Combine the sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside.Cook the noodles in boiling water until they are cooked al dente (tender but still firm).

    This will take about 3 minutes for fresh noodles, and 4 - 5 minutes for dried noodles. Drain, rinse with cold water, and drain again.Cut the carrot into thin strips to match the chicken. Rinse the straw mushrooms under running water to remove any “tinny” taste. Drain thoroughly.Heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium high to high heat. Add the garlic, stir-fry for a few seconds until aromatic, then add the chicken. Stir-fry the chicken until it changes color and is 80 percent cooked. (If you need more oil, try adding 1 tablespoon water). Remove the chicken and clean out the wok.Heat 2 tablespoons oil and the salt in the wok. Add the carrots and mushrooms. Stir-fry for 1 minute, then add the chicken. Add the noodles, stirring to mix in with the other ingredients. Add the sauce into the wok, mixing with the other ingredients.Cook for 2 more minutes. Taste and add salt or pepper if desired. Serve hot.

    Loving To Learn!

    My 4 yr. old daughter unfortunately wasn't able to join PreK since the waiting list is already for next year in our Parish and we only want to enroll her at Catholic School. This fall, she will be entering Kindergarten hopefully at the Catholic School that hubby has inquired. I can't wait for her to be in school and start learning! She has been pretty excited about it and I hope her excitement won't diminish! Learning can be tough too and if ever she encounters some problems, we know that there is no need to worry because there are certain places like Summer Program that will help any child who will have a hard time and make learning a fun way for them!

    Katie is Almost 20 Months old!

    In about 6days, my 2nd child will turn 20mos! And I could tell, she is picking up really quick like a sponge! It helps having her big sister...she's always imitating her. So cute to watch her trying to dance like her sister, walk, scream, talk and act...everything, she will try! At this stage she pretty much get scared when I leave her. Very attached to me, as what hubby said and here's great tips for toddlers at this age from babycenter.com:

    How your life is changing:

    Your toddler is very attached to you, but of course you can't always be together. When you or another important adult leaves, it can be unsettling for your child, who relies on your presence to feel secure. Ease transitions by letting him know beforehand that you're going to leave, and then don't drag out your exit. Give him a quick kiss, and be off.

    Parent Tip: How to Avoid "No" "

    Instead of telling my son no all the time, which can lead to power struggles, try saying things like, "Let's try eating with our fork," "Let's not play with the lamp cord right now — let's color instead." You'll find that giving your child a way out that facilitates communication and listening really pays off." --Mary

    Spooky!

    Do you like scary movies or stories??? I am actually not a very brave person when it comes to horror movies or stories and I easily get frightened but I don't know why I like watching one. There was one story in my life that still haunts me. When I was a little kid, I remember seeing a guy at night in our door waking me up and calling my name but he is like a dark shadow that I couldn't see his face. My mother was really frightened about it because she would see me walking at night trying to get to the door and telling her I have to go because someone is calling me. Every night that guy always visits me and my mother believed that it was an old man who passed away a long time ago and was burried near our house. Pretty spooky even until now that I share this, it gives me goosebumps! Just like this 1408 Movie which is a terrifying story by Stephen Kings. And you know, when it's Stephen Kings, it is really a good one! John Cusack stars in this film also Samuel L. Jackson who both are really great actors!



    Cusack is the novelist who writes about the paranormal and he doesn't believe anything he doesn't see until he checked in at room 1408 at the hotel where Jackson works as a manager and Cusack's is definitely in for something terrifying because the room is haunted!!!1408 Movie will be in theater this coming June 22 so, make sure you get to see it and of course better be not alone!!! Here's a preview of the movie...

It is nice that we get along fine although of course, there are times we don't but we normally we make up pretty quick! We couldn't stay mad at each other for a long time, that's how we treasure our relationship! She is such a responsible, caring, generous and loving sister and I couldn't ask for more...so, for you sister I wish you all the best on your bday and hoping someday we could be together w/ the whole family!!!

    Gift for Father's Day

    I have been thinking since last week what I will get my hubby for Father's Day. As for my father, I got it all figured out. I am considering a book but I know he has way too many books already and I know guys are into electronic stuff but I think he pretty much got it all covered.

    At The Pet Store We Went!

    My daughters has always enjoyed a pet store and I enjoy watching them having fun too! Although I am not a pet lover, I still want to have one someday and I know it's really good for kids to teach them responsibilities, love and care...Last tues., we went for a quick trip at the pet store and as soon as we went inside, the 2 hurriedly run towards the bunnies, checking out fish in the tank, birds in the cage and their most favorite...dogs!







    I was so amused with Jessica asking me to take a picture of her with the puppy. She really wanted that one and asked if we could pet the puppy but I didn't want to because Katie usually cries when the dog gets near her and I don't want to scare the poor kid. She was just having fun as long as they are caged in while my Jessica was a bit disappointed, promised her next time when Katie isn't around...
