updates for today

It wasn't so bad , I had a lovely time playing with the kids at the pool. A bit tired but I enjoyed the company so well, with Anne and David. But for the past days, I have difficulty dealing with Sarah (my elderly person that i looked after). She had a terrible moods and most of the time I can't bear not to answer her a single word especially if she discriminated me and the country where I from (Philippines) When she got angry with her daughter I'm the one who suffer her anguish. And it takes time before she get over it. This is the part of the job unlike in the Philippines, I have a career there when I left but now I don't know if I could find a job when I came back. So sad , and so frustrating. But then, I still think positive , I'm not given up so quicky.

The Power Of Secret

The First Secret -- The Power Of Thought... Love begins with our thoughts. We become what we think. Loving thoughts create loving experiences and loving relationships. Affirmations can change our beliefs and thoughts about ourselves and others. If we want to love someone, we need to consider their needs and desires. Thinking about your ideal partner will help you recognize him or her when you meet.

The Second Secret -- The Power Of Respect... You cannot love anyone or anything unless you first respect them. The first person you need to respect is yourself. To begin to gain self-respect ask yourself, "What do I respect about myself?" To gain respect for others, even those you may dislike, ask yourself, "What do I respect about them?"

The Third Secret -- The Power Of Giving... If you want to receive love, all you have to do is give it! The more love you give, the more you will receive. To love is to give of yourself, freely and unconditionally. Practice random acts of …

Common sense is not a common thing

This is the happy times when we were together!

For 31 years of existence in this crazy world, I've learned and experienced a lot of things in life.

Before I went abroad 6 years ago I thought life was like that. Pains, hard work, and happiness. Yes, it was but the more I get older, the more I understand what life is.?I meet different people, different views, different characteristics, different lives, stories etc...That's gives me an idea and aware of the things I encountered everyday in my existence. As I understood, back at my very young age, (17 years old)life was very shallow. It has a deeper meaning.

I meet a friend which is 4 years older than me, back in the Philippines she was an English/History Professor. She is smart, a good speaker, and intelligent. I adored her so much in that way. We've been living in together for about 2 years and since I left my previous job we communicated and meet once in a while. We been good friends and I knew her secret as she shared i…

Evaluating myself and my relationship

I keep thinking where I gone wrong? All I know I tried to give the best I can but it seems it's not enough for him. Perhaps, something wrong with me or because we are miles away from each other. Sometimes he felt that I am unreachable, I am too strong which in fact I have nothing to show off. With the experiences I had I grew to handle relationship. I listen and take advices and applied it to my self.

When I was 28 years old, I had also a long distance relationship. He was working as a sailor, so we only talked once in a month or 45 days. It was hard for me but the relationship last almost 2 years then suddenly he was gone. All I've heard that he was married. I am certainly sure that we are not meant to be after all.

I left home when I was 13 years old and stand with my own and makes decision. I don't know of being so independent at a very young age is helpful? I became so though, domineering and a bossy character. I don't want to be like this but I grew up like wit…

headache-from emotional stress

Since yesterday, i got a terrible headache and I thought,lack of sleep was the main reason. But probably, the weather also one of the cause because it is very hot. Taking medicine is my worse enemy but I can't cope the pain (aching)so I decided to take paracetamol this morning. that helps me a lot. Emotional stress also the reason why people having headache I supposed. Me, I'm not overwork physically but the I am emotionally stress. Being with the elderly person for almost 16 hours a day is tiring. Well, that's the kind of job I got. I prefer to look after Alzheimer's patient rather than a mobile person, who is able to walk and talk as a normal people. It's difficult to manage. I am emotionally stress because I could feel what they felt and sometimes I am worried and the anger is there. I usually take a deep breath and get out from the room and avoid them sometimes.

A water bearer in China had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which he carried across her neck. One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect ans always delivered a full portion of water. At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house , the cracked pot arrived only half full. For a full two years this went daily, the bearer delivering only one and a half pots of water to his house. of course, the perfect pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do. After two years of what was perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. " I am ashamed of myself because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back house." The bearer said to the pot, "Did you noticed that they are roses on your side of the path, but not on the other pot's side. ? That because I have always known about your flaw, so I p…

~I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

baking time for mandel bread

it was a new day, a new discovery hehehe.... lets find out what i discovered ..LOL, like invention or new baking habit. Actually i love cooking, i love to be in the kitchen all the time and discover new things, i used to read recipe books and copy a simple recipe. I used to start a simple recipe yong kaya ng bulsa

Sarah(my elderly employer) thought me how to make mandelbread recipe and i want to give you a small background of this recipe. I called it "sarah's mandel bread"

Mandel bread, or mandelbrot, is a traditional Jewish cookie that is slightly softer than biscotti. These treats can be enjoyed with a cup of coffee like biscotti, or as a child's treat to be enjoyed with milk while playing a game of dreidel during Hanukkah. No matter the occasion, mandel bread is always a good choice for a snack.


1 pound of self raising flour
250 grams of margarine

ladies single champion

I thought Venus William will get the tittle but it was reverse .. Venus is looks athletic than her sister, looks feminine. Serena Williams, 27 years won the tittle as Women Singles Champion at Wimbledon. It is a world tournament. It's not the money they are playing, it's a pride. They are already a multi-millionare..CONGRATULATIONS , SERENA WILLIAMS... I am looking forward for the men's single final tomorrow...

the ladies single final preview at wimbledon

You would imagine that Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, home of the Williams sisters, is celebrating now. Another publicity boost for the old town. That sort of thing. Apparently not. They take the ongoing brilliance of Venus and Serena quite calmly, it seems.And the two women accept it because, as Venus points out, the United States is a big place where they have lots of stars in a multitude of sports. It seems that Venus and Serena are a bigger item here at Wimbledon than they are in Palm Beach Gardens.Richard Williams, their father and coach, announced after their respective semi-final victories on Friday that he was heading home "to cut the grass" rather than watch his daughters do battle with each other. He never watches them play each other, he says, never has done and never will. Since this will be their 21st meeting at professional level, Richard's grass must be extremely well tended.The grass on Centre Court is beginning to look a mite bare and scorched after the we…

the match today

we will wait who will win the match between two sisters, venus and serena williams..
For me it is not a challenging match, whoever wins it doesn't matter. But I bit Venus will get the gandslam of the Wimbledon Women Singles Championship..

yesterday tennis result

I'm really sorry, this result is not updated. It was upsetting result co'z I want Andy Murray win but he was knocked out. If he got it it is a big break for Great Britain , since 1938 they never have the grandslam record. But anyway, Andy is just 22 years old and he will have a lot of years to go into the grandslam

Semifinals: Andy Roddick (6) def Andy Murray (3)
6-4 4-6 7-6 7-6

Semifinals: Roger Federer (2) def Tommy Haas (24)
7-6 7-5 6-3 Semifinals: Venus Williams (3) def Dinara Safina (1)
6-1 6-0

a tennis addict

I am not a lover of sports but suddenly it came to realize when I started watching the match of tennis held at France I enjoyed it very much, the players are fantastic. Now, since the Wimbledon open the tennis tournament a week ago, I became a tennis addict. There isn't a filipino player but Roger Federrer is my favorite player. On sunday will be the final of the men's competition and Roger Federrer will be my player. Hopefully he will get the grandslam, but if not who ever wins now the simi-final between Any Murray and Andy Roddick will be fine...

The Life of a Breadwinner

I was 13 years old when I left home away from my parents because they can't be able to send me in high school. We are 6 sibling of the family and I am the 2nd to the eldest. A kind hearted family took me to the City, I worked with them as an assistant secretary of their canned/frozen business and I was studying at the same time in the afternoon. After I finished on my first year in high school , my mother asked me a favor to stop schooling because she wanted me to help my elder sister to pay for her tution fees(she was in the private school and I was a wroking student).Because I was pittied to my mother, I stop schooling and since then the family where I worked with give me a monthly salary. They didn't agree with my decesion but they had nothing to do about it. I stopped for a year and help my parents. I used to gave my money to my mother when she came to the City every end of the month. I went back school but I was working as a fish vendor in big market in Bankerohan.(my m…
