Start Your 2015 Right, Declutter Your Bedroom!

I know I’m 3 weeks late but allow me to greet you guys a Happy New Year! May 2015 bring you and your family happiness, good health and good fortune!

And since it’s new year, I decided to do some spring cleaning in my apartment. I started off with my bedroom since I spend most of my time in there. Took me a whole day! I installed a new curtain beam so I can put a nicer set of curtains, took out all the clutter on my wall, removed unused beauty products on my vanity table and decluttered my closet! Surprised to see how many clothes, bags and shoes I have accumulated over the years! I currently have 5 big tool boxes for unused stuff and they’re eating a lot of space! I wish I have ovis built-in cabinet organizers and drawers in my room (in the kitchen too!) so I can have more space.

I am sending these boxes to my barrio so my mother can donate it to the people affected by the typhoon last month.

Let’s make 2015 our best year yet!

1 Year Since You’ve been Gone

Already 1 year since tatay went to heaven. I miss him everyday!

We’re all okay. Nanay is okay, she cries sometimes but for the most part, she is strong and moving on. Very admirable. You would have been very glad to hear that both your sons are working outside of the country. Ate is okay and very happy with Keith. Inday is following your footsteps! She’s now learning to play the guitar (we bought one for her last Christmas). Julia is super smart, kulit and sings very well, just like you! Sayang, you didn’t get to see Ponsky! He looks just like you, Tatay! You would have been a doting grandfather to him if you were here. I’m okay now, feeling a lot better and slowly accepting everything what happened. I don’t cry as often as I used to now.

I MISS YOU TATAY! I miss you so much, everyday. Please watch over us from heaven! I love you forever!

New Year’s Celebration

New Year’s Table

Yeay! It’s only 27 days until Christmas and 34 days until 2015! How do you want to celebrate your new year? My Aunt and I were discussing a while ago about our year end plans, we’re looking into getting a 2-night suite accommodation in Oakwood Premier Hotel somewhere in Ortigas, unfortunately, December 30 – January 1, 2015 are blocked off, so it looks like we’re all just going to celebrate at home. It would have been fun to party in a nice suite!

Anyway, this is our typical New Year’s table during Media Noche. Messy, right? Must get my Aunt a new round gingham tablecloth from here so the table looks more presentable. All my favorite food is served – caldereta, vegetable salad, chicken wings and sinfully delicious black forest cake. Making me hungry since I haven’t eaten anything yet since I woke up.

Hope you guys will have an awesome 2015!

First Christmas Without You


Photo from Pinterest

We’re only 5 months away until Christmas! Are you excited already? I am not.

I can picture already that my family and I will be really really sad when that day comes since it’ll be the first Christmas without my dear father. I remember when he was still alive, he loved celebrating Christmas (he was born on December 24), he loved to invite and entertain guests in our home and he loved to play Christmas songs on full blast very early in the morning.

I miss you everyday Tay. I miss you and I love you! Instead of being all depressed and sad on your birthday/Christmas, we will try to celebrate and remember you. Just like last year, we will put up the big Christmas tree around the corner of our living room, maybe we’ll even setup a department 56 dickens village display on one of the console tables you made, we’ll cook all your favorite food on your birthday/Christmas and invite some friends and relatives. We will try to live well and be grateful always. Please help us esp. Nanay to keep moving forward.

Irrepressible Goodness

Though there is much to be concerned about, there is far, far more for which to be thankful. Though life’s goodness can at times be overshadowed, it is never outweighed.

For every single act that is senselessly destructive, there are thousands more small, quiet acts of love, kindness and compassion. For every person who seeks to hurt, there are many, many more who devote their lives to helping and to healing.

When something needs to be done, even if it is difficult and demanding, there is always someone who steps forward to do it. When problems arise, there are always those who are eager to deal with them.

Though the goodness of life does at times suffer setbacks, it always endures. And when it is challenged, the goodness of life comes back stronger than ever.

For in the darkest moments it becomes vividly clear that life is a priceless treasure. And so the goodness of life is made even stronger by the very things that oppose it.

Open your heart and look around you. You will see that goodness shining in every direction.

— Ralph Marston

*********
NOTES: Exactly what I needed today – “Open your heart and look around you. You will see that goodness shining in every direction”

Something not so nice happened this morning and I don’t want to focus all my energy about it today. No to negative stuff pls. I want to just enjoy and focus in the goodness of life!

Lose Weight Using Portion Control Plates

How cool!!!!


Porcelain Control Plate

I need a set of of this china portion plates in my life! Sooo cool!

Why losing weight is sooo hard!!!! I am getting bigger day by day. I seriously haven’t worn maong pants in years! A lot of my clothes from 2-3 yrs back wont fit anymore!!! I know exactly what to do but I just can’t find the time and courage to do it. I need a complete paradigm shift about my thoughts on dieting and becoming healthy. How to start???

Dieting doesn’t mean starving. Dieting doesn’t mean starving. Dieting doesn’t mean starving. Repeat 100x!

Dieting means eating well. Eating well doesn’t mean eating everthing you like! Eating well means eating the right food in healthy quantities and in proper proportion to each other. I should stop eating rice and bread and potatoes! I know I cannot stop it altogether because I’m such a Ricevore and Carboholic haha. My action plan is to start with half rice each for morning and lunch and no rice for dinner, then more veggies throughout the day and just a small portion of lean meat. Easier said than done, I know. I need this portion plate to remind me to watch what I’m eating all the time! I just need 1 piece that I could bring wherever I go.
