Charles' Cards

February 15, 2017

Being able to drive the car gives me leisure to shop around at the stores and end up buying things that I don’t normally buy on a shopping trip. Lately, I have been infatuated with buying decorative boxes from Tuesday Morning and Burlington even though I could have used some shoe boxes or plastic tubs to put cards in it. I thought it was lovely so I bought one to keep Charles’ cards and he has lots of them already even for his age. Most of his cards he got are all from his aunts even with no occasion he gets them as well.

Charles' Cards

Growing up as a teen I longed for someone to give me a card as I thought its very sweet but I didn’t get any. The box does not suits his personality so when someone asks he’ll always remember that his mom bought it for him.

Good Morning America Is More Fun to Watch

The Today Show, has always been my morning show over the years. Until I used Viggle, I realized Good Morning America, is more fun to watch than Today, based on my daily viewing routine. GMA anchors are more vibrant, they laughed so hard when something’s funny without thinking they are on television. Unlike Today, the way I see it the anchors looks apprehensive to talk on certain topics, afraid to let loose on national television. Hey when you have fun don’t be afraid to get up from your seat and dance to the music that’s what GMA anchors does. So if you want a brighter day to start your morning GMA is by far the best morning show you could watch on television. 

Aside from GMA I am into Food Paradise re-runs and  Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern on Travel Channel. Watching Bizarre Foods featured in Singapore yesterday was the reason we ate at Lin’s Garden for Valentine’s Day. Speaking of Valentine’s Day, how did you celebrate despite the rain and cold temperature?

Saxophone Sheet Music

So if you love the saxophone and music in general you really need to look at the selection of sheet music available at the Musician's Friend, at this link With a wide array of style and types of music including jazz, show tunes, blues and popular music you are sure to find the music that trips your trigger.

Magnolia Ice Cream

January 30, 2017

I usually splurge on seafood every time I go to the Asian store but this time around I got Magnolia ice cream. Yeah! I bought 2 tubs of ice cream and it is very pricey compared the ones that I usually get at Walmart. I could have bought 2 lbs of shrimp, 4 crabs and 2 large squid for the price itself. Heck! When I go to the Asian store my hubby always told me get what you want, so I did! Trying different flavors other than vanilla my favorite by the way :) was just an imagination how these ice cream would taste like when growing up in the Philippines as we could not afford to buy in a big container. We would only get the ones in the cone during fiesta or when someone is selling in our area. Aside from ice cream, I also got sweet potato, banana and pork belly which is perfect to make adobo. When I saw Bizarre Foods, Delicious Destinations, with Andrew Zimmern, on Travel Channel featured in the Philippines, I learned I could add oyster sauce when making adobo. Tried it few weeks ago and it tasted really good. No need to add brown sugar to sweeten up the sauce, oyster sauce tastes delicious!

Sweet Potato


As of today, I cooked Menudo using pork belly as I loved it’s fat itself and this will be my meal for a few days during the day. Aside from cooking dishes I also shopped at Tuesday Morning and found a box that was on clearance. I think it is cute so I bought it.

These Apps are Worth a Try

December 12, 2016

I hardly ever download phone apps to my phone as I thought I really don’t need them or I don’t want them on my phone to say the least. Over the last few months, I saw a Viggle commercial on television and I thought that would be interesting to try though I want the app to be downloaded on my husband’s phone. While downloading the app I learned that I could get rewarded while watching television in exchange for various gift cards to choose from or cash. 

After a couple of months of racking up my Viggle points I exchanged it for a  Betty Crocker Crockpot to see if this app is truly legit. Days after, I was astound when I saw the package outside our doorstep as I wasn’t really expecting the item would arrive that soon. As I opened the package I was really excited and couldn’t believe I was getting the crockpot for real. 

Since then, I have been using Viggle mostly on my favorite shows on television and watch extra ads to get Perk points. Aside from Viggle and Perk, I am also loving Ibotta where you can get rebates while you shop your favorite brands or groceries. Checkout 51 is just like Ibotta where you can get rebates as well. This app is legit as I just cashed out my first transaction weeks ago. I know downloading apps on the app store can be cautious especially when you get the fake ones out there but these apps that I am talking about are worth a try.
