Taking my "shutter bugness" in the next level is truly an exciting and remarkable learning adventure. It's like seeing things in a whole new way...how simple and little things can look so artsy and even magical at times!  Please join me as I give photography a try.  Cheers!

Photo Blog: Face Shop ❤ Kim Hyun Joong

Hello! Here's to praying that everyone had a meaningful Thanksgiving Celebration and of course, that everyone got some retail therapy with all the Sale going here, there and everywhere (cause I surely did!) :-)

So sorry that I've been M.I.A. (Missing In Action) again for the past days. It's been another great week of truly, fun-filled activities for my family. Just to start off, I'm venturing into photo blogging. Also just to keep my post coming regularly. :-)  We got a good SLR camera over the weekend. Being the shutterbug that I am, getting hold of a better camera is simply amazing and addictive. Though I'm still on the learning mode, I hope that I can be as creative in photography as I do in writing.

For my first entry, here's to fueling my Korean Culture addiction (amidst the sad events surrounding both Koreas). Nothing techie or photoshop moment on the picture, but it's the subject that I have a special tender and ❤ though. :-) So they say, a good picture always start with a good subject, and the technical and artistic aspects follow! :-)

Happy Monday everyone! Cheers! ❤❤❤

♥WINNERS of In New York! Ms. Abigail's Guide to Dating, Mating & Marriage Giveaway Tickets! ♥

Drumroll please...

Sharing with you the winners of 2 sets of Tickets each...

1. Jennifer of Just Call Me Lucy

"My first date huh?? There is really not much to tell...I was 16 almost 17 when I met my husband. We were both volunteers for our local First Aid squad. I knew he liked me but he was so shy. I walked up to him and asked if he could remember phone numbers. He said "yeah why"? So I said here is my number, call me sometime. He called me that night and we were on the phone for 8 hours. The next he met me after work and we walked home together (like 2 miles) As we were walking he found a $5.00 bill and said "Here you keep it"... We have been together ever since! MArried for 15 and together for 19. We live in NY too."

2. Kelly of Dressing Mommy

"Worst date ever? When I was 21 I went on a date with a guy who took me to Applebees to hang out with his 16 year old neighbor and all his high school friends - one who tried to hit on me all night - creepy!! Yea, I never went out with him again!!"

Till next post & giveaways! Cheers!

♥Lightning McQueen is my son's BFF...and mine too! ♥

I'll let you in a little tidbit about my site's stats, my top post is about my son's 2nd birthday with Disney Cars Theme. Like me, moms probably can't get enough of the all so lovable characters. Lightning McQueen and of course his BFF Mater are simply endearing. The story as with most Disney/Pixar's Movies touch on a lot of important values...friendship, sportsmanship, responsibility and a whole lot more.

Here goes another post dedicated to Lightning McQueen. Pictures would show that we are truly so much in ♥ with him ☺...On your mark, get set, go!!!

Everything Disney Cars and a whole lot more...☺

♥My Top Picks: Bath & Body Works♥

If they were to ask me what I love shopping the most in the States (besides my son's goodies), I would definitely say Coach Purses & Bath & Body Works Goodies. I ❤ hoarding lotions, shampoos & body sprays! :-) I can't seem to get enough of them. Of the 6 boxes (at 50 lbs./box) we took home from our last May 2010 USA Trip, 3 of them were filled with them! And the rest of my son's and my hubby's toys. ☺ Oh yes, we do have duty free shops here, wherein we can get imported stuff too, but a dollar or 2 savings I think was better than nothing. 1 Box was dedicated solely for my addiction to Bath & Body Works!

The good thing about it though is I got my husband to like them as well...justifies my reason to indulge on them! :-)

I'm addicted to their Anti-bacterial Handsoaps especially the Foaming and the Moisturizing variants. 

But for my top picks (and my hubby's too)...I love to hoard these scents and variants.

  1. Shower Gel - Orange Sapphire Scent
    • Love it's sweet citrus scent that really lasts 
    • It's as luxurious and moisturizing as it promises
    • The whole bathroom would smell as nice after

 Meet and Greet with fabulous moms out there...♥♥♥

Would love for you to stop by and read through my posts and please let me know what you think! 


♥Halloween Fun! Parade of Costumes!♥

Hello! It's good to be back...October went by so fast and it was definitely a fun-filled month. For me, it was like a month of re-awakening! ✶ I got to jumpstart a potential career as a freelance writer to one of Philippine's leading parenting publication -- Smart Parenting. I was given three assignments to write for the month, 2 of them already got published. ☺ Yeah Baby! I'm actually looking forward to my third article because it's something that's really close to my ♡....coming soon!

Oh well! Going back to my post, (drumroll please!) ...Sharing with you our fun-filled, spook-tacular Halloween 2010.

Chase's School Spooky Fun Party 
Trick or Treat! Parlor Games! Dancing! = Epic Fun! 

Another spectacular feat of the teachers of Preschoolville!!! ♥♥♥

My son, Chase, in the traditional vampire outfit!  ♥ My Li'l Edward ♥
Choosing his costume had been a challenge and a much debated topic over the weeks...he wanted to be a soldier, I wanted him to be a commercial airline pilot etc. Much to my vanity (and sadly, my lack or creativity!), I didn't want him to dress up as something scary. So we decided to go for the safe and traditional costume. I bought the custom made cape and vampire vintage top from the toy store. I got him to wear a black formal vest for a more classier vampire look. That's the only thing he likes about his costume (he thinks he's a lawyer...missing only his briefcase! ☺) ...definitely looking forward for next year's Halloween, I intend to be more prepared and a little bit more creative!
