On feeling sorry

Hey guys, sorry for my absence . I realized that I focused too much on blogging. I definitely, enjoyed reading your blogs contents,  BC-Bloggers journals and articles. Even I'm at work I tried to open  my computer and check
the latest updates with your topic.  Thus,  I became addicted on it and I realized that I still got an important job to do. In fact, as a caregiver, I have a big obligation and responsibility that shouldn't be neglected.

I just felt sorry that I cannot update my blogs from time to time and I tried my best to visit you guys too.

on my week end escapades....

It's been six weeks that I haven't been out since my cousin Rose went to home to the Philippines. Well, Rose was my buddy, my partner in everything. But I am still happy because I still have my lovi'n friend. Actually, Rose and I both lover her. She is our hair stylist and our make up artist lol. 


As usual like we used to do, we went to along the beach restaurant.summery breeze and had a lovely walked on the promenade. Though it was a short time spending together with them (Iren and her boyfriend) but it was great, I enjoyed it so much. Even, I want more but  I have to go back home before twelve o'clock like a cinderella's beauty. Anyhow, I thank them very much for the lovely time and for the treat as well. Iren paid the bill of what we ate and Idan found a taxi for me and make sure I'm going home safe and sound.

on clumsy day

Hey beauties, I missed my post here yesterday , I was a bit busy and I try to sneak around while I'm working but I just didn't have time in here. I was too sleepy last night too.  I hope that everyone has a wonderful day though. Did you guys anything exciting?

At this point, Sarah and I went to supermarket yesterday to do some shopping. When we entered , we went straight to fruits area. When I picked up a box of plums to show it to her, the box was fell out from my hand and scattered on the floor. I was really embarrassed and instead of picking it, we left the area and pretended nothing happen. We kept on shopping and I stumbled to different kinds of nuts. I took a little bag and weigh little amount of wall nuts but the whole basket of wall nuts fell in front me. I was shocked. And one lady told me, "It's alright" and Sarah said "what happen to you" Yeah , I don't even know what happen to me. I'm not usually clumsy.

What about you guys? How do you feel if you have such experience? That was my exciting day..LOL!

On aiming to have a soft skin and neat nails

I always love to have clean fingernails and toenails and aiming always to have a soft hand. I think everybody does! Don't we? Some of us go to the salon everyweek for treatment just to have soft skin and neat fingernails. But even , if you cannot make it to go the salon everyweek becuase your busy or it's an extra expense for you. We can easily maintain neat nails and soft touchable hands and feet. All you need to have are some basic expensive tools that you can use at home and set aside 20 minutes a week to pamper your finger and toes. So, if you follow that every week then you can have a looking nice nails even you aren't wearing a nail polish. As to speak wearing nail polish can be dehydrating and can result to nails breakage. So, better not to with it for a day or so.

Electric Cars - Environmentally Friendly

Anne and David (my patient Children)went to the first try out of electric car here in Israel last Friday. They said electric car was amazing. Very environmentally friendly, no fumes and less noise pollution. However, some believe that the energy they consume is harmful to the environment such as coal, nuclear and hydroelectric power. Anne said that the battery needs long time recharging and it last only for 100 miles. But even so, she never consume 100 miles a day. Only when long time traveling. 

I'm not a driver , but I want to learn how to drive. So , as to speak Electric Car is powered by an electric motor instead of gasoline engine. The electric motor gets energy from a controller , which regulate the amount of power based of the driver's use of an accelerator pedal. The electric car (also known as electric vehicle or EV) uses energy stored in its rechargeable batteries, which are recharged by common household electricity

Electric cars produce no tailpipe emissions, reduce our dependency on oil, and are cheaper to operate. Of course, the process of producing the electricity moves the emissions further upstream to the utility company’s smokestack but even dirty electricity used in electric cars usually reduces our collective carbon footprint.
Would you rather use electric? No dirty hand anymore!

Three Wishes

I once read that almost every culture on earth has a folktale about "three magic wishes"Most feature a genie or some other mythical figure who grants the requests of a patron. Almost all of these tales end in tragedy.

I supposed these stories come from the desire to have everything we want in this life, even though we've learned that we'll always be frustrated in that pursuit. If anything, life teaches us that nothing is this world can satisfy us fully, for even if we gained the whole world we would eventually lose it.

Among the most poignant of these stories is the tale of stockbroker who encountered a genie on the way to the office. When offered a wish, the man asked for and received copy  of his local newspaper dated one year into the future. He hurriedly turned to the financial page, hoping to "make s killing"in opposite page h saw his picture in an obituary describing his death in an automobile accident the preceding day.

Life is short and very uncertain. We cannot know what the future will bring. We can only ask GOD to turn us away from trivial pursuits and direct our hearts to follow HIM. We pray, as Moses did "Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom"(Psalm 90:12)

Our attitude Toward Deth
Determine how we live

Shall the great Judge say, when my task is through , 
That my soul had gathered some riches too?
Or shall at the last it be mine to find
That all I had worked for was left behind? -Anon

GT- Friends at Work

It's Girl Talk again, the day that we are waiting for.  Well, talking about, this week topic is Friends that we made at work. Tell me where I should begin? LOL! Frankly, I never stay home, I have to work and the same time study. So, perhaps I will start when I was working as a crew in a food chain. I'm very glad and happy for after 10 years I able to re-connect with them through facebook.






The two beautiful ladies above are Marj and Elaine. We were buddies and became good friends when I was working in Jollibee - Gaisano Mall. Actually, we were a pioneering group and we were trained into different areas and branches of Jollibee together with Rene the picture below from right. We used to call him "matured" Why? I don't know! LOL.  I enjoyed it so much being with then and the managers too. Unfortunately, I don't have a group picture to share with because I'm not home to dig up my album and they don't have a copy either. And the lovely Jofe , the picture below left was my crew mate when I was in Texas, she was my trainer and became friends. Eventually, we ended up the same time since then  never heard from them after 10 years, only recently I am happy and very glad to reconnect them through Facebook. Isn't that Facebook amazing?

Soon, I left Jollibee I had a chance to work in government offices but I didn't make friends that much. All I remember when I was in PRC I had a mentor who encourage and inspired me to finish my degree. Unfortunately,  our communication lost when I left office  three months after graduation because as a government employee I should  qualify a Civil Service Exam. The thing was,  I never take CS Exam LOL! I cannot find her either here in Facebook. I really missed her and sorry I don't have photos for this..

The last job I got in the Philippines was at Medical Corporation and after 10 months working I left and go abroad. I made three good friends only in my department but after a year here in Israel we lost contact. They never reply my letters anymore, just recently I reconnected one of them through facebook.

 And these are my friends when I came here in Israel (Beit Ami Retirement Home and Recuperation Center / Galie Zahav Old Age Home
Friends I made at Nursing Home ( Ate Melly, yours truly, Ate Laura, Ging, Arlene, Marie and Charmel)

Basic Cash Flow (An eye-opener to everyone)

The basic is. What pattern do you see if you will get a P100.00 bill and monitor where and how it is transferred from 1 possessor to the other? How does it flow? The pattern for a typical Filipino is. You earn from your work, you spend it on food, gadgets, clothing and other basic needs. Before you reach the next payday, paubos na yong pera (run out of money). But that's ok payday is just a few days ahead and it doesn't matter if I run out of money, I am expecting money again any time soon. This cycle goes on and on and you make some sidelines or create other ways to earn but it seems that money was never enough.  So you can't leave the job that you have because a week without work would affect the cash flow you have to support your family and needs. As much as you wanted to accept another job, the gap would make you pay less for a couple of days, which makes you a slave to your boss . At least, you have a job to support your needs. 

So to illustrate.. ..Cash is flowing inside your pocket. 

Years have gone by doing your monotonous routine.

Question... what if you get fired? Or you were forced to retire because there are new and younger people ready to take your place. What would you do?

As an OFW, Makati Executive, Top Salesman, Engineer, Attorney, Teacher, etc...  What if it all ends? The sweet cash that enters your pocket every 15 th and 30th suddenly comes to a halt.
There are two things you can buy with your money...  An asset and a liability. To describe each... An asset brings money inside your pocket; a liability takes money out of your pocket. Another way to see, it is that an asset if you buy one, will bring the money you spent for it back to you 2 or 3 folds. A liability, when you buy it will not give your money back at all. Sa ilocano... idjay ti kwa... djak maawatan...  (joke, lang po, seryoso na kayo eh.you're too serious lol..)  Sa madaling salita... kapag asset, maibabalik ang pera , pag liability, goodbye sa pera...  (simply, if it is an asset , money comes back..if it is a liability - money's gone and never comes back)
 

Ang problema kay JUAN DE LA CRUZ, habang may trabaho ipon ng ipon at bili ng bili ng liability! (The problem of Juan dela Cruz, while he has a job , he keep saving and buying a liability)

I have seen OFWs get back to the country with gold chains and if it is possible to wear 5 shades at the same time, they'll do it..dvd, component, jacket,clothes, drinks for party and they cannot even walk because they got a lot to carry.

And of course, employee in our country, that almost every week they own new cellphone and extragavant cars, to place for clothes in the closet then the next morning they said I have nothing to wear.. Guys, we have to think and think... what you bought... will it bring money back to you? I know what you have in mind... you have to enjoy what you worked hard for. That's right, but think of something that will last.... think of your future. I have seen the worst of people who were a family lawyers, executive secretaries of top rank business men, people who worked for big companies, earned a fortune and got a big retirement pay by the millions... Now.... Wala na.(gone) Why? Because of their cash flow... went in... went out. 

I need not to mention basketball players, actors, singers, etc... Check what is their career path... next after acting, singing and playing... POLITICS. Kasi, 'yung million na kinita nila, puro liability ang binili.(Because the million they earned , they all bought a liability) .Going back... all the liability they bought, ibinenta ng mura! Example:  I'm wearing a gold chain now, which I got from a seaman.... he bought it for P35,000 and sold it for 8,000 to me.  Hindi po asset ang alahas( Jewelry is not an asset)! Bakit?(Why?) Totoo na tumataas ang value n'ya pero kapag gutom ka na, kahit palugi ibebenta mo!(Its true that the value appreciate but what if you are starving?) Cell phones... dvd players etc. pati bahay at kotse...(even houses and cars) that's the cash flow of most OFWs...

The question is ... " WHAT IF THE INCOME STOPS?" 

Sa Pinoy, ganito: anak... mag-aral kang maigi, at pag tanda namin... ikaw na bahala sa amin ha.... ( With our culture parents will said.. Oh my lovely child , you have to study hard so that when we get old, you will take care with us, Is that right?) You have to establish something today that will take care of your future. Teka, teka... eh ano ang dapat gawin para hindi mangyari yan? 
 (Opss, what we should do so that it will not happen?)

You must create a source of income that will continually make money flow inside your pocket. Start a business! While you are working as an executive or an OFW, or a professional. ..   START A BUSINESS and MASTER that business   till you get out of that company. So, if income stops, you still have money to support yourself until you get old
Now don't tell me to invest my money on pensions and plans... NO WAY ! Maybe you've heard it .... That those who paid , never got a chance to claim it...Don't depend your future to others, Make you own well of money , even if it is small amout , its yours and you never depend from other.

Imagine yourself when you reach an older age. You have money that the company gave you as your retirement pay... what will you do? You can consume the money till your old.... what if it is not enough? Masamang damo ka pala... at hindi ka kaagad kinuha ni Lord. Eh pang age 65 lang yung naipon mo na budget.

Or maybe, you can start a business and use the money for capital...Brothers and Sisters... 9 out of 10 businesses, FAILED... yung isang magsa-succeed,(one is successful) gagayahin pa ng kapitbahay mo instead na mag-franchise sa 'yo... think! At age 50, you are struggling trying to make a business work! What if it fails?! Eh ano nga ba ang sagot?  (What is the answer?)

The answer is, stop buying liabilities and instead buy assets now. I don't care if it is a banana-Q store, balot, ice candy or a sari-sari store, etc... start now! Because, your experience here will teach you what to do in the future.  It's so hard to struggle in business when you are 60 yrs old.
You have to create a source of income separated from the source of income from your work. That when the time comes that you have to stop working, you will have your own source of money! Create assets, start a business that will be there to support you and your family. I AM NOT TELLING YOU TO QUIT YOUR JOB!  I'm telling you to start a business while you're working and stop spending your money on liabilities and start putting them on assets! Ang pera kapag pinambili mo ng LIABILITY... hindi na babalik... ang ASSET... BABALIK.  (MOney will never comes back when you buy for a liability, but if you bought an asset surely it will double and comes back to you)

Opss, it is bad to buy dress? NO,  its not bad to buy dress or shoes just make sure that the money you use to buy such things  came from your asset. The business has to be prioritized! Even you lose your job, you still have business to taking care off.

If before, nabubuhay ka naman ng iisa sapatos mo, huwag mo baguhin 'yun... dati, nagdyi-jeep ka lang... 'wag ka na munang mag-FX...(If before, you used only to have a 1 pair of shoes, don't change it, if before you ride a jeep, don't buy an FX yet)
Create assets and lessen liabilities. Invest and learn now... and do BUSINESS

Hmm, What business? Any, as long as you think it is work and doable!

The ugly side of beauty


Here she is aspiring make up artist

This is one of her works LOL

I have a friend who is an aspiring Make Up Artist. She loves what to do and she is grasping  the opportunity to do it. She learned it only through practice. And practice makes perfect for her. She is a girl who loves fashion and beauty like me LOL! And she loves helping others fell beautiful. She is a wonderful friend, she don't let others behind beauty and fashion. I remember those times when we were together in a flat.  Sometimes she provide the girls what to wear and she make us look beautiful.

In my point of view wearing make up certainly a credit for every woman. There is an agony that woman go through in wanting feel beautiful even if just for an evening. Some woman feels this so attainable that they don't even attempt it. They said "that's not me"or "I don't fuss with stuff like that." This is me, is so ugly. Eventually, we can be beautiful and humble at the time. Just because you have a sense of style and wear make up does not make you shallow.

It is the fact that there are women out there, who are born beautiful without wearing make up and I believe that there are also women who looks beautiful with less make up. Oppsss, perhaps you might miss understand what I'm trying to say that woman who don't make up are ugly.. Definitely NO! I am simply explaining that make up can do amazing  things to accentuate our beautiful qualities. Even if your husband or boyfriend will say, Oh, your beautiful without make up, though they appreciate. But  be aware with their eyes to admire and look beautiful women wearing make ups. Have you noticed that?

Make up can help express your inner light. It builds up confidence. Women grasp every opportunity to swag stuff stuff and feel beautiful
So, don't allow yourself to get bogged down and dreary, because its not worth it. And if your stay at home , don't allow yourself to be in sweats and looks like frumpy. I am sure you don't like to see yourself in the mirror if you are dowdy. lol!Though beauty is going to waste - and that's definitely one ugly side of beauty.
Don't allow yourself to get bogged down and dreary-its not worth it. And for goodness sake if you stay at home-don't allow yourself to be in sweats and makeup less all the time. Nobody wants to look in the mirror and see frump. Beauty that is going to waste- That is definitely one ugly side of beauty.

Achieving healthy head of beautiful hair

Have you dream to have a healthy beautiful hair? or is your scalp suffer from dryness like me?Fungus, dandruff or any other things cause by hair color?  Well, if you have those  problems then we have to follow this three main things for a good looking head hair. 

Good Health 

1. Adequate Diet  - Hair growth depends on adequate diets. A widespread diet problems which causes loss of hair is iron deficiency anemia. If you have  too little meat, eggs, cereals or peas and beans it cause too little iron in blood. Fresh fruits and vegetables are also needed to provide Vitamin C, which enables the body to absorb the iron.

The attention to cleanliness

2. Cutting the hair - although cutting the hair is not essential to its well being but it is easier to keep the scalp clean if the hair kept reasonably short.  Regular cutting as we believe does not make the hair grow faster. 

Caution when using cosmetic treatments

3. How hair can be damaged - although scalp hair is hardy, and can withstand  a lot of abuse, but it can be damaged by too much or inexpertly applied perming, dyeing, bleaching and massage. The amount of beautifying the hair can take varies from person to person. And occasionally the scalp to the dye and becomes inflames and swollen. To prevent this occurring, the dye should be tested by applying it into a small area of your arm. It patch of inflammation has develop, the dye must not be use on the hair. 

More people who bleach their hair do so with hydrogen peroxide. If the peroxide repeatedly applied it may make the hair brittle. It this happens the hair may turn rough, develop split ends or become thinned or shorten.


How about you any tips to achieve a healthy good looking hair? Share your tips too..Have a good day!

The chicken reports the scattering stair throughout our composite.

What/Who Inspires me most?

When I was a little girl  I was inspired to do better in school which I did. I usually dreamed that someday I will be a somebody. Unfortunately due to lack of financial constraint my parents asked me to stop school when I was going into High School. However, my dreams didn't stop there. I left  home and went to the City and became a working student. I worked and study hard until I got my degree. That was the greatest achievement or gift I ever done to my life and to my parents. It wasn't easy nevertheless, I never gave up. When I think about my parents,  I strive hard with perseverance and enthusiasm.  If only they could have money, I know they won't let me down. They are the people who inspires me to do more and to dream more.

these was the dream that really inspired me most to work and study hard.

my lovely parents who inspires me most of who I am now.
