Search for Mr and Ms UN 2007

Most parents are now busy looking for traditional costumes of different countries that could fit their children because of the United Nations event or affair that most schools in the Philippines are celebrating.

A friend of mine asked me for help because her sister needs a Cowgirl costume, and boy she is lucky I still have my Cowboy Hat hanging in my bedroom wall and my brother’s Cowboy Vest (when we were young). I just told her that her sister could wear a sexy short or jeans paired with a checkered long-sleeve and she will look fine.

After that, I went to my room and take out my little brother’s album to reminisce the time when he won as Mr. UN 2007 and Best in Costume. Rashid and his classmate won in Best Attire or Best in Costume at that time simply because we really made an effort and ordered a tailor -made Korean traditional costume for the event.
I cannot not take a photo of it so I wanna share this photo with you. My brother’s costume was a copy from Jumong’s (a Korean teleserye that I used to watch) outfit.

I am Pro-Online Shopping

I cannot stress enough that I am Pro-Online Shopping. I may have posted a lot about online shopping in this blog and here I am again, making a blog post about it.

Almost all things are sold online, everything that you need are already sold online. From airline tickets to ferry boat tickets, from hotel accommodations to tour guides, from lingerie to everything that you wore, and from  toys for the kids to fun drinking games for two people. Almost everything that you need in your home can be bought online,without hassle, without spending money for bus fare or gasoline, and without spending too much energy on getting your butt to the mall, look around shops and determine or choose what to finally buy after two hours of walking around.

I am not a lazy person if you are thinking that I am. I am just using my mind on how to shop and spend my money wisely. Online shopping is a great thing, it can help the environment (you leave less carbon footprint because instead of driving your car 60 kilometers from your home to the mall that is), aside from that it can save you money (you only have to pay for the shipping fee and sometimes its free where as if you drive around you will have to pay for a gasoline and you need to spend for your lunch or snacks when it is time to eat and you are still walking around the mall).

Fridays, what are you waiting for every Friday? What do you love about Fridays? I love Fridays because I can share my PINK things for Pink Fridays!

Here is a photo of my daughter with too much excitement for the gifts she receive from Mommy Gen of Wonderful Things in Life. Indeed, there are so many wonderful things in life and we should be thankful for that.

I cannot wait to see my daughter wear this cute terno that she got from Mommy Gen. And I will definitely share it with you 🙂

iPhone Accessories

iPhone 5 has finally come out and no, I am not planning to buy one for myself just yet. I am enjoying my iPhone 4S so much and I don’t think I will let it go now. I have been buying a lot of iPhone 4S cases and I change it every time I like to match it with my get up.

While I was watching the TV, a TV program was showcasing the different accessories one can get or buy for her or his iPhone. There are lenses that can be bought in the market and use on your iPhone. There are also microphone for iPhone available in case you want to turn your iPhone into a recorder. Another great accessories that you should buy for your iPhone is that shock-proof case, it is a good investment I believe.

Shopping for a Scooter

I have bought my 5 years old son a kick scooter before at around 1000php and it only lasted for 2 months then it broke down. So when he asked me to buy a new one, I made sure that it will be durable and will last for a longer period of time.

I am glad that when I was checking out Robinson’s mall for kick scooters, the sales lady offered me this brand:

She told me that their selling price is around 3000php but it is currently on sale and I only have to pay 2000php for it. So I bought it. This kick scooter has a patented rear fender brake and folding mechanism, urethane wheels with ABEC-5 high speed bearings, and it is easy to fold and carry.
Safety Reminders: (I copied from Razor’s manual booklet which I believe can help every parent and child who owns a kick scooter)

  • Loose Parts – check and secure all fasteners before every ride. Make sure the collar clamp, quick release lever and handlebar spring buttons are locked properly in place before riding.
  • Replacement Parts – Replace worn or broken parts immediately.
  • Safety Gear – Always wear proper protective equipment such as an approved safety helmet, elbow pads and knee pads. Always wear shoes, never ride barefooted or in sandals, and keep shoelaces tied and out of the way of the wheels.
  • Be Careful – You will see people on TV and maybe even people you know doing tricks and stunts. These are people who have been practicing on scooters for a very long time. Don’t try something until you are ready. Avoid steep inclines and don’t ride too fast – you can lose control and fall.
