Success for Beach Outing

To ensure success in your beach outing, I get this guideline on how to plan your beach outing.

Step 1:
Plan the schedule and the destination.  Deciding the time and venue is the first step to a successful outing.  You have to ask everyone in the family for suggestions on this.  Make sure that you consider your budget in planning for a vacation.
Warning:  You should not forget to ask the opinion of everyone, especially when it comes to the schedule.  Make sure that you choose the time when everyone is free to go.
Step 2:
Ensure that the destination is best for your family.  After you have chosen the date and the venue, you have to do some research to verify if the place or accommodation is available during your scheduled trip.  You also have to verify the things that are prohibited in that specific beach.
Warning:  By searching online, you can check the condition of the place and also ensure the availability of your accommodations.  You should also not forget to check if your budget is enough for that particular place.
Step 3:
Make reservations if necessary.  The beach would probably be crowded this time of the year, so in order to ensure that you will have a place to stay, you can contact someone from the resort or from a nearby hotel if you can make advanced booking.
Warning:  This is a very important step.  Booking in advance will ensure that you and your family will have a comfortable place to stay during your outing.
Step 4:
Prepare the things that you will need.  You should make a checklist of the things that you are going to bring.  It is best to shop for essential items such as toiletries as early as possible to ensure that you won’t forget something.
Warning:  Do not forget to grab some sun protection products when you shop for items that you will bring to the beach.
Overall, following these steps will make your beach resort vacation a success.  After preparing and packing, step out and enjoy what nature has to offer.
Happy happy outing..:)

Family Outing

My sister and cousin's birthday tomorrow and also as a welcome back celebration to my cousin family from Bulacan we decided to celebrate it in coaco beach. My kids are really excited for our family outing tomorrow. We choose this place because it is near from our place and since we have both little kids we can easy to handle. It's been a long time that we didn't see each other that's why we want to spend our time together.

Now, we starting to packing our things so that by tomorrow I can avoid any things to forgot.

Pay Bills

Yesterday I prepared all the bills like Internet bill, water bill, electric bill and it cost very big amount. Tomorrow is the deadline that's why today I will make it sure that I can pay it now to avoid penalties. My boss already know the overall total of the bills that's why I am expecting today that he will give the money to pay this bills. Last time I remembered  that I forgot to pay one of the bill  that's why we had to pay the penalty.

I thankful because my boss not angry for my mistake :)

It's Thursday

It is wonderful Thursday that's why i want to share this poem. 


Spring has come, 
said the bougainvillea 
Crimson, orange, cream 
and yellow 
Making a flower wall 
along the road 
I bring happiness 
to all. 

Wait, said the 
little flower
on the edge of the kerb 
I, too, blossom 
though I am small 
Every now and then 
a little child walks past, 
sees me 
at her height 
And happily smiles. 

Doesn't that make us comrades 
on the road!

Bad Things About Coffee

Since my mother and my husband drink coffee so often that's why now, my mother had a heart disease and my husband increase sugar. We brings my mother in the hospital and she stay there almost 2 weeks and the doctor said that she not allowed to drink coffee anymore. Why? 

Aside of good things about coffee there are also bad things these are: 

Short Energy - Because caffeine is considered a stimulant, it will give you a short boost of energy. But there's the keyword: short. It won't be long before you end up with a crash and then need more coffee or caffeine, but eventually you'll get to the point where caffeine will not even wake you up anymore.
Decrease Effect - Long-term consuming of caffeine means that in time, the effect of caffeine on you (as in the booster of energy that you want) will steadily decrease. Think of a sloping graph or chart.
Addictive Drug - Caffeine is considered a drug because it can actually be addictive. In fact, most people around the country and many over the globe drink this every day because they are addicted.
Other Effects - If you ingest too much caffeine, or caffeine on an empty stomach, don't be surprised to end up getting jittery or shaky. Also, if you drink coffee or energy drinks too late during the day, there's a good chance you'll end up staying up much of the night. Yes, caffeine can disturb your normal day to day pattern of sleep.
Dehydrating - Coffee itself has been dubbed a diuretic, meaning that you may dehydrate your body if you drink too much of it. It will also cause you to become dehydrated because it causes an increase in urine flow. If you drink coffee, make sure to consume enough water as well.
Yellow Teeth - If you drink coffee often, don't be surprised to find that your teeth will eventually turn yellow. Sometimes it's good to rinse your mouth out with water. Some people on the other hand, will become obsessed with this and brush their teeth right after every drink, which is a bad idea because this can easily strip your enamel (the protective blanket-like shield that layers around each of your teeth) and it will never come back. Just plain rinsing will help to clean your mouth and teeth without taking away that coating.

Plot of Minsan Lang Kitang Iibigin

Alexander Del Tierro (Coco Martin) was born into a family affiliated with the army, his father, Col. Joaquin Del Tierro (John Estrada) is a respected military officer and his grandfather, Gen. Jaime Sebastiano (Ronaldo Valdez) is one of the feared generals in the Philippines but doesn't have a close relationship with his mother, Alondra (Lorna Tolentino) blaming him for the death of her youngest son, Jaime Del Tierro, Jr. (Bugoy CariƱo) which led Alexander to join the military otherwise after continuously refusing to do so. His best friend, Gabrielle (Andi Eigenmann) has been by his side in the most important times of his life and has developed feelings for him since they were about 10 years old. Gabrielle is raised by her grandfather, Gen. Edgardo Marcelo (Dante Rivero) after her parents died in the lines of duty. Unfortunately Alexander doesn't feel the same way for her but one of their military friends, Norberto Matias (Martin del Rosario) does.
Alondra was brought up by Teresa Valderosa (Angel Aquino), Gen. Jaime's mistress. Her mother died after being hit by a car forcing Jaime to bring her into his family. It is there that she met Joaquin, her half-sister Lora's (Amy Austria-Ventura) boyfriend and developed feelings for him. Alondra have always envied and hated her sister wanting everything that she owns and has namely Joaquin and their father's affection. Lora's mother Remedios (Boots Anson-Roa) comes from a long line of rebels but was forced to leave the mountains when she fell in love with Jaime, she finds herself trapped in an unhappy marriage. After finding out about Jaime's mistress, she headed back to the mountains and waited for her daughter. In a later accident, Alondra tells a taxi driver to run over her sister. Lora is immediately sent to a private doctor. Alondra's best friend Mimi (Candy Pangilinan) and Mimi's cousin Tomas (Tonton Gutierrez) agrees that they would help her and it is there that they discovered about Lora's pregnancy. Jaime lies to Joaquin after hearing the news of Lora's disappearance and tells him that she has been found dead, thinking that she has decided to follow her mother to the mountains instead. Alondra leaves the country but goes back in time for Lora's labour. Lora gives birth to twin brothers but the doctors inform them that the other has passed away. Alondra takes the other baby, Alexander and brings him to Joaquin, supposedly theirs forcing him to marry her. Tomas had her wife and child pass away before he met Lora and has developed feelings for her. After finding out that the twin who died was breathing, he takes it as a message from God to start a new life. Lora wakes up from her coma after a year not knowing that she has given birth and finds out that Joaquin has been married with her sister. It is there that she decided to follow her mother, Remedios now named Elena to the mountains with Tomas with his new name Bernabe and herself as Rosa taking Javier with them, the baby that Tomas allegedly found in a burning apartment.
Javier (Coco Martin) was raised up by his surrogate mother Rosa and his adoptive father Bernabe and Elena. Javier is aware that they're not his birth parents and longs to find his true family and live a normal life. His former girlfriend, Krista (Maja Salvador) is still in love with him and has two missions in life: to fulfill the romance between them and to avenge her parents death. Krista was raised up as an orphan by the rebels along with her brother Tiago (Lloyd Zaragoza). She witnessed her parents death and remembers the soldier that killed them, Edgardo. When she was a kid, she was saved from the hands of the militars by Alexander and fell in love with him and when she met Javier, she thought that it was him that helped her.
In an encounter between the soldiers and the rebels, Alexander and Javier met and since then they tried to learn about each other's lives and family. The two brothers often switch lives and both fell in love with their female counterparts, Javier with Gabrielle and Alexander with Krista. The people surrounding them start to suspect that something is going on that neither of them knows. Alondra follows Alexander and it is their that she finds out that Alexander has a twin brother. She develops a strong relationship with Javier that Alexander never felt, Alondra often sees Javier as Jaime Jr. Wanting to find out who raised Javier, she follows him on his way back to the mountains and is surprised to see Lora.
The soldiers capture Diego (Ronnie Lazaro), Tiago and Ibon (Jojit Lorenzo) in a later attack. Edgardo is forced to tell the truth to Joaquin concerning Lora and Remedios' alleged death and disappearance after facing the two in an encounter. The truth between the twin brothers are revealed after Gabrielle, Alexander, Krista and Javier meet face to face. Rosa, Elena and Bernabe witness the capture of Javier and Krista. Elena surrenders for Javier but Rosa manages to escape. The four later decide to take on amnesty including Bernabe who was captured weeks after, reusing their birth names. Kaye realises that Alexander was the one that saved her from the militars when they were kids and immediately falls in love with him but Gabrielle refuses to feel the same way for Javier, despite having the same appearance, Gabrielle is convinced that Javier doesn't have the qualities that made her fall in love with Alexander. Mimi suspects that Alondra is responsible behind Lora's sudden disappearance. After months Lora comes back revealing the truth behind her absence, the fact that she was in prison after being framed by Tomas with drugs to keep her away from Joaquin. She comes back to Manila and visits the military camp in hope to see Joaquin but sees Alondra instead and is captured by the militars. Lora decides to take on amnesty to be with her family especially her mother. Joaquin draws closure to her after years of not seeing each other and finds out the truth of why she never came back. She is set free along with Diego, Tiago and Ibon who decided to take on amnesty to take their revenge to the people that betrayed them namely Javier.
Javier experiences a hard time adjusting to a normal life and develops hatred and jealousy towards his brother, having Gabrielle's affection and a stable relationship with Krista. He gets involved in a carnapping business but later chose to betray his friends, Inigo (Franco Daza), Rico (Dino Imperial) and Bunch (Michael Roy Jornales) to avoid being sent to prison. Alexander meanwhile proposes to Kaye and Joaquin is more than happy for his son and arranged for the parental marriage proposal. It is there that Diego, Tiago and Ibon took their revenge. Unfortunately, Remedios gets shot and is rushed to the hospital which caused her to suffer subdural hematoma and eventually dies. Her death caused Lora and Jaime to re-build a strong relationship back to what it was before Alondra came into their lives, making her sister more jealous than before.
Javier is framed of drug possession and unlicensed armoury and is sent to prison but escapes. He is seen roaming around a street near their house and Alexander is immediately ordered to run after him. Alexander surrounds his brother alone with no way out. Javier smacks Alexander making his brother fall out of conscious and asks Alondra for help who suggested locking up Alexander and impersonate Alexander. Javier locks his brother in a cage and breaks up with Krista to pursue his love for Gabrielle giving her suspicion that he isn't the same person. Gabrielle follows him on his visit to Alexander with Alondra and Mimi and is convinced that foul play has been involved. Mimi sees Gabrielle and, with confusion and desperation, hits her with an ax lying on the ground and falls into a ditch and loses consciousness. Gabrielle later wakes up and finally finds Alexander in the cage and dies painfully in front of her best friend and true love.
Alexander successfully escapes and captures Javier and ties him up. He is determined to find out who murdered his best friend and discovers that Alondra has been helping him. He fixes things up with Krista and tells her that Javier has been impersonating him explaining his recent actions. Meanwhile Mimi runs away before the military find out about the murder. Alondra is frightened that she and Tomas would reveal the truth and so frames Tomas of killing Gabrielle by placing his watch besides Gabrielle's body bringing Tomas' life in danger. Lora finds out that Tomas has been lying to her all these years about her scar and that she has given birth and demands him for her sons but he refuses to answer. Alondra discovers that Alexander has escaped and hides Javier elsewhere and informs him about Gabrielle's death but refuses to believe so, Javier sneaks in to Gabrielle's funeral to prove it for himself. The military spotted Javier but they also saw Tomas who, after being beaten by Javier, managed to escape after a close call. The truth slowly unravels as Alexander reports to the headquarters of his suspicion that Alondra is helping Javier escape. Berto meanwhile finds out that Mimi is Tomas' cousin bringing to conclusion that Alondra might've taken Alexander from Lora, this is later proven after taking a DNA test, that Alexander and Javier are in fact Lora and Joaquin's sons. The only thing Lora wishes for is Javier, to fulfill her dream of having a complete family. Tomas is later found after threatening to kill Alondra. Alondra comes back home and finds out that they have discovered the truth and so Joaquin leaves her for good and files for annulment, meanwhile Lora visits Tomas and tells her that she would be leaving him considering that they're not legally married and would be erasing him from her mind. Not knowing that Lora is his real mother, Javier promises to protect Alondra bringing Alexander and Lora's life in danger with Alondra's plan to kill them for revenge. Tiago is put to prison and Diego and Ibon are wanted after Krista and Alexander overhears their plan of murdering Javier. Mimi returns with the help of Adele and sacrifices herself and admits that she is responsible for the death of Gabrielle.
Alondra kidnaps Lora and holds her in captive at the same building where they kept Alexander then, bringing her life in danger but later escapes with another reverse of events. Tomas breaks out of prison to prevent Alondra from harming her, Diego and Ibon later captures him and he tips them to go the same village where Alondra has kept Lora. In a rather puzzling encounter, Javier goes to the warehouse, without knowing that it is Alondra in uniform, Javier shoots her and is confused after seeing Alexander. Alondra treats her wound and finds a gun and plans to shoot her sister. Tomas meanwhile sacrifices himself for Lora as she is held at gunpoint by the rebels, Tomas gets shot and begs Lora for forgiveness before dying in her arms. The brothers eventually face off in a final showdown as Alexander tries to convince Javier to sacrifice himself, Lora and Joaquin gets hold of him and reveals the truth of their relation and finally decides to surrender and reconciles with his family including his best friend Krista, he is proven not guilty of the crime he was framed up for and wasn't sent to jail. Alondra meanwhile falls in the hands of the rebels who uses her to get hold of Javier and Lora. She is surprised to hear that they would help her despite all her wrongdoings and she asks for forgiveness from her family and lastly God as the military forces fail to stop the bombs planted around her. Jaime Jr. visits her spiritually and tells her to come home with him to heaven as the bomb explodes. The series ends a year after with Lora and Joaquin and Alexander and Krista celebrating a double wedding. Gen. Jaime is now retired and has passed on his seat to Edgardo as Vice Chief of Staff and Alexander and Krista are happy parents of twin brothers. The final scene shows Joaquin, Lora, Alexander, Krista, and Javier with the babies fulfilling the dream of a complete family.

No for Meat

Being a Christian we are usually avoiding to prepared pork, chicken, beef or any meat as our fasting. My husband apply this to himself as a part of his fasting and penitence. He start not to eat rice every holy Thursday and ended on holy Saturday.

Anyway guys, why we abstain from meat? my co-blogger said that she heard two things that sound right,  first: Abstaining from meat is a way of practicing self denial and taking on a kind of voluntary, temporary poverty as a kind of "gift" to God. The idea of penance, which is the larger idea here, is thousands of years old, reaching back to the early Hebrews, at least. Some people wore sackcloth and ashes, others fasted and wept. It is a way of stripping away the tokens of wealth and power for a short time so we can remember who we are. We do this on the day Jesus allowed everything to be taken from him so we could see who he is and be saved. As part of this, meat (except fish) tended to be the food of the wealthy, and still does. Red meat especially isn't practical for the poor, because of the expense, space, equipment (freezers, for example), and such. In wealthy countries, the "poor" can still afford it in some form, but poor people in other countries (without electricity and refrigerators) might never eat red meat at all.  The idea is we avoid bloody (red meat) food out of respect for the Crucifixion, because Jesus gave his blood for us. Fish are okay, because they are "bloodless." (To the ancients, fish didn't appear to have much blood.).

How about you guys? what is your opinion?

Preparing for Holy Thursday

Today we are preparing for tomorrow activity. We are walking from downtown to Shrine Hills, Matina. I only followed this from my husband as his penitence for almost 20 years I think and when we are together I also joined him for that activity. In myself it is really small sacrifices than what GOD did to us but I want to feel HIM that I am ready to sacrifice even in a small way but the important is in the bottom of your heart you really truly for his forgiveness for what your sins and thankful for what HE did for us.

Hope that by tomorrow, everything will be okey.

Proud To Be Filipino

Do you also proud for being Filipino?  I get this from  Filipino website.

I am a Filipino. I was born here in the Philippines. I was born with Filipino parents. I am proud to be a Filipino. Ngek! Proud to be a Filipino? Then why do I speak english in this article? Thats what I like about being a Filipino. We are learners. We try to learn the culture of our neighbors. We do this not only just to please them, but also to get to know them and we always seek to understand them and for us to be understood as well. We are a very hospitable people. We love to entertain guests specially foreigners. we love to prepare our homes so our guests will be as comfortable as possible. We love to speak english so everybody can understand us.
Flag Raising Ceremony
Another reason why I love being a Filipino is that we always have a reason to smile about. even in times of trials and disasters we are smiling. We smile not because we are unaffected or simply being silly. We smile because we have hope in our hearts that after these trials there is a better tomorrow.

Our smiles is a sign of hope. Hope from a great God that we always go to in times of trouble. Thats another reason why I love being a Filipino we all trust, believe and love God. No matter what religion we are in still the love of God lingers in every one of us. We love God so much. We are a praying nation. We are peace loving people. We are a humble race that we shy in the light of recognition.
I love being a Filipino because, Filipinos are kind at heart. always willing to help even with strangers. even in the streets you will not encounter a filipino that is rude and foul mouthed. We are a people with values. and we love to respect our elders. We love our elders so much we are willing to take care of them till they on their death bed. We don’t put them in Homes and hire caregivers, we take care of them and love them in our own homes.
I love being a Filipino because, Filipinos love their families. We work hard for our family. We enjoy with our family, we cry with our family, we celebrate with our family. Whatever we do our families are always in our top priority list. We sacrifice our own enjoyment for our family. We get our moral support, confidence, and strength from our family.
I love being a Filipino because, Filipinos are the most flexible, most resilient people in the world. We can live without electricity, without flat screen TVs, without digital cameras, without, microwave ovens, washing machines, without the internet and all the luxuries in the world. Take them all away and still a filipino can live happily and peacefully. We love luxury but we can live without them. We value more of real, face to face relatioships than just texting or e-mailing each other form afar. We love to make things through our own resources, our own time, our own effort even without the aid of technology.
And most of all, I love being a filipino because, Filipinos are good inside and out. We love to help even when dont have money. We volunteer, we participate in good causes. We have a soft spot for people who are less fortunate, for the orphan, for the abandoned, for the children, for the grandmothers. Our hearts are big for these people. We do not ignore them. We may not help physically but we help in praying for them. We love our kababayan may it be here or abroad.
I love being a Filipino.
I am proud to be a Filipino.
How about you guys????
