Monday Hops ♥

Monday! Hurray! :-) Here's to meeting and making more fabulous friends! :-)


I would really ♥ it if you would read through my mommy adventures! :-)...please visit me again for more of my exciting ravings and sometimes rantings! :-) 

♥ Mom Tested! Samsung Corby Wi-fi Phone ♥

Hello! Over the weekend, we visited the Sun Shop Store in Marquee Mall. My phone lines  (2 plans at Php 350/mo.) are up for retention or loyalty renewal. The 24 month-contracts passed! :-)...in effect I got to renew the lines and get the free phones at the same time. Sun Cellular and it's 24/7 Unlimited Free Call and Texts changes the way how we sees phone units! Basic phones are okay! You don't really have to get a flashy units. As long as the call buttons work, you're happy! :-)...but, just the same, for the basic plan 350 phone you get a Samsung Champ for free, but I wanted to get the Samsung Corby Wi-fi, and mind you I want it in yellow! :-) I got it for an additional Php 2700 ($60)! I fell in ♥ with it!

I'm not really a techie expert...but I have to tell moms out there, that this is actually a very user friendly phone. I was hesitant at first to shift brands, since I've been a Sony Ericsson User for almost 5 years! I'm a person who gets confused with Nokia phones since I've been used to the features of my SE phones. But transitioning to the Samsung Corby Wi-fi is very easy! :-) Just this specific phone unit though, that's why I wanted to talk about it. Because, I'm also using my hubby's Omnia, it's supposedly a better and a higher version, but when I use it to browse the Net, I have to restart it, do multiple touches on the buttons...sorry, but if it's for mobile browsing, I'm not really a fan of Omnia right now.

School Birthday Party

I always wanted to write about celebrating birthdays in school...my son attended so many and talks about them dearly. But since I never hosted one, I can never really talk about it in details. Good thing though, my nephew, Gabe, just had his birthday in school. He is a preschooler in Brightwoods School in Angeles City.
Gabe with his Red Ribbon Cake (Toy Story Characters were bought separately)



Planning a School Birthday Party:
  • Get permission with the school or get to know the school guidelines on this...cause they do differ! Common practice is that they allow it during the snack time, so it's basically a 30 minute affair.
    • Ask if they allow balloons, mascots etc.
    • Ask if they will allow a hosted party, just in case you will get restaurant party package (e.g. McDonald's, Jollibee etc.), with games. 
    • If you decide to have a full blown party, ask if you will be allowed to hold it after class hours, to inform the parents that they will be picking up their kids at a later time. Downside of this, is that some of your kid's classmates will not be able to stay long if they are riding the school bus.
  • Make sure you know the head count of kids, and if you wish, you can allot extra for the teachers etc.
  • Give out invitations at least two days before, just to let the parents know that snacks is on you! :-)...and should they decide to return the favor of getting presents, you won't really rush them.
  • You can still choose a theme for this simple affair, like for my nephew, it's Toy Story! :-)
    • Get theme invitations, party hats, table liners/place mats 
  • Important: Prepare a corresponding take-out bag/plastics, just in case they won't finish their food.
  • If you intend to serve the cake, make sure you bring serving knife and dessert plates and fork
  • Important: Be on time! This is the case when the party time will really start and end promptly!:-)

♥Making Friends Monday♥

Welcome Monday! I'm starting to enjoy blog hopping...it's really great to meet new fabulous moms!... Here goes my Monday hop...Cheers! ♥♥♥

If you have time, please look through my other exciting posts! Besides my homemaking (mommy & wifey) posts, I also started to talk about my Korean Culture addiction...I'm so into the Hallyu Wave! :-) I also won myself tickets to attend the Seoul Drama Awards, but unfortunately I cannot make it! :-( I don't have enough time and even resources to plan an express trip to Seoul! Oh well! :-)

Episode 1 & 2 of Mischievous Kiss/Playful Kiss Out Now!♥

Oh well! Hallyu weekend for me! :-) In a way it's feeding my depression of not having to win the dream grand prize of going to Seoul, South Korea (but I did win the 5th prize). So being the devoted hallyu addict that I am, I wanted to be updated to the latest KDrama --Playful a.k.a. Mischievous Kiss Korean Version! From the Japanese Manga series Itazura na Kiss. The 2005 Taiwanese Version's "It Started with a Kiss!" and the sequels are I guess well-received. But personally, I just can't seem to bring myself to watch it! The story is ok, just that I can't seem to bond with the actress in that version. But with Kim Hyun Joong in the Korean Version, I'm actually looking forward to it! :-)

I ♥ Kim Hyun Joong character in Boys Over Flowers as Yoon Ji Hoo. So naturally, I wanted to see how he does in this drama. Critics would say that he didn't act well in the BOF, but personally, I like him in the BOF nonetheless and I watched BOF a dozen times (literally spent endless sleepless nights), and I think he played his role pretty well and within the character's need --♥Ji Hoo Sunbae♥! My son thinks that he's that cool too, he actually decided that he wanted to be a doctor like Ji Hoo in the drama. From then on, my definition of BFF is actually after his character! :-)

♥Dream a Little Dream: Win a Seoul Trip!...blogging my hallyu addiction!♥


Oh well! This is probably wishful thinking!♥ Last week, I came across this contest...it ended last Aug. 28 and supposedly the winners would be announce soon(Crossing my fingers!). Here is my Dream Seoul Tour...of course my choices are limited, otherwise I would definitely go to Gongseri Catholic Church,Myeong-dong and The Garden of Morning Calm, and lastly, my ultimate destination would be to attend Jang Keun Suk's Fan Meeting, wherever and whenever that would be!♥♥♥ 

RESULTS are out!!! I won 5th place = 2 Tickets to the Seould Drama Awards Night, but not Airfare!!! Oh well, sadly, I don't think I can reaise enough funds to cover my visit there in such short notice! It would be on September 10. My take on this, dreams do come true! Keep trying! I will try on reaching my dreams, in time! :-)
Here goes my very own Seoul Tour--I lovingly call it Seoul Fusion. :-) 
First Stop: NamSan Seoul Tower
2nd Stop: Deoksugung
Last Stop: Apgugeong
Tour Description: ♥♥♥

"Rekindle one's penchant for Korea as it takes you to places that inspires the romantic, the traditional and the urban chic sides to every girl in love to Korean Drama. Celebrate being in love the Jan-Di way, relieve being a princess, and lastly what every material girl wants, shop in style!"
in ♥ much! Hallyu!:-)

Seeing Things in a Whole New Way!

Welcome Wednesday! Time flies...is already September!:-)
A lot of exciting things happened over the days, I will talk about them soon! :-)

Starting of with this... after being "astigmatism free" for the past two years, it's back again!


I recycled my old prescription frames and got fitted for new lenses (in just less than an hour!) That's me taking everything with a grain of salt. :-)

I also joined again the Wednesday Blog Hop! Looking forward to meeting more new fabulous moms!







Cheers!

About Me

My Photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
