Buy one get one Mc Donald’s premium chicken salad

I have one coupon of buy get one premium salad for Mc Donald’s that will expire in few days. I should use the coupon before it will expire. I never like eating salad. I make them at home for my husband my kids. They love to eat salad.

I am trying hard to shred some pounds on my stomach for this year. Working out is not an easy thing to do. It takes perseverance and strong determination to meet your goal. I stop working out for seven days as I have my monthly period. I cannot wait to start again this morning. Eating healthy helps you shred the unwanted pounds.

My husband and I went to Wal-Mart and stop by at Mc Donald’s on the way home. I used the coupon for the buy one get one premium salad and will eat when we get home. The premium salad is very delicious. It is also filling. It is perfect for lunch. It comes with greens like lettuce, spinach and other green leafy vegetables. It also comes with grape tomatoes, shredded carrots and parmesan cheese.

PhotobucketWe choose Caesar salad dressing this time. We usually use the Italian salad dressing. You can also pick baked or grilled chicken.

I really love that salad. It cost $4.29 for each bowl. I think it is not bad. What about you? Do you like to eat salad too? I am linking this entry to 9th day of blog photo challenge and Food Friday.

Day 08- Short term goals for this month and why

I do not know that my goal for this month can be achieve. I am talking about shredding some unhealthy fats on my stomach. I tried working out for five days and unfortunately need to stop as my monthly period come. I really miss working out. I just cannot wait to start working out again. I want to wear my two piece swimsuit for this summer. I will only wear them when I am swimming with the family in our in ground pool. It would be awesome to wear them in the public like if we go to a beach or park if my body is ready.

I am also eating more healthy food for the last days. I start eating cereals in the morning. I am not a cereal fan but have no choice to stay healthy. I even try eating salad which is not my favorite food to eat. I do make salad for the family but I do not eat it.

I still have five months to work out and hope that before summer I can see some results. I am not doing this for anybody but for myself. I do miss my body when I was 28 years old. I know that taking care of your kids and family is a priority. I want to give something for myself too.

I am linking this to the 8th day of blog challenge. Today’s task is about your short-term goals for this month and why. What about you? What are your short terms goals?

Received a pearl earrings

I am happy that I received free pearl earrings in the mail this week. I like to wear fashion jewelry. My main reason is I am so clumsy that I lost or forget most of the things that I wear or have. I am wearing them now to make sure my ears are not itchy.

PhotobucketI got these pearl earrings as a token for promoting their Website. I like the pearl earrings because they are very light to wear. I like the pearl earrings because of the style and the simplicity too.

What about you? Do you like to wear pearls? Do you have other favorites of stone to wear? I am linking this to 8th day of blog photo challenge and Wednesday Whites.

Day 7- The biggest impact

This is hard one for me. It takes me awhile to think on what ideas to write. I am glad that finally I set one on this thing. I plan to write a person and then change my mind.

I am so independent when I was in the Philippines. I can do whatever I want though I still live in my parent’s house. I abide by their rules. Life over in the Philippines is very convenient. You can go wherever you want. You do not need a vehicle. There are many public transportations that you can hire like a taxi or jeepney to name a few. You can hire a tricycle. You can even walk to go to church, school or public market.

Life changes when I live in America by myself. I miss my life in the Philippines so badly especially living away from my parents that time. You have to do everything here by yourself. I learn to be more independent except that I cannot go anywhere without my husband goes with me or dropping me at the store. Learning how to drive is a priority. There is a bus station but still very far from where I live.

I took my driving learner’s permit and passed the test with flying colors. I study my driving manual book. I should have by driver license early. I am so stubborn that it took me awhile to pass my road test. Learning how to drive with your husband teaching you is a big mistake. There are many constant arguing while you are learning which makes me more uneasy to learn how to drive. I finally enrolled in a driving class. It does not help much knowing that your driving instructor is a Grandma who has no patience to teach you.

I took my road test and failed twice. It sucks big time. You have no idea how hurtful it is. Finally, I have to face my fear when I my little girl will go to school in Pre-K. My husband told me that the only way our little girl can go to school is when I pass my road test. I have to enroll myself again in the driving class to get a certificate which is required by the New York state before you will take your road test. I also took my learner’s permit and passed with flying colors. The day before I take my road test that weekend, my husband and kids were with me in the car while learning to drive. My husband took me to the road where I will take my road test. We practice how to stop on the stop sign. We practice how to park parallel. This time with the determination I have and my husband constant insulting while I am driving. I swallow my pride. Finally on the day of my road test, we left the house early. We still practice on the road where I will take my road test doing the same pattern. I was nervous when the instructor sits on the front sit next to me on my road test. I take a deep breath and say my prayers to GOD guide me while taking my road test. I missed some turns. The instructor asks me again to take a right turn. She asks me to park parallel. My road test is over for at least ten minutes. The instructor advises me with my mistakes. I was listening to her and surprisingly take a peek on her paper and I see the P sign next to my name. She gave me my temporary driving license. It is like a receipt. She told me I passed my road test. I still cannot believe that finally I did it. My husband then came with our kids and asked the instructor how I did. The instructor then said that I passed my road test. Finally our little girl can go to school.

I would say the biggest impact for me is passing my road test. I would link this entry to the 7th day of blog challenge. Today’s task is your biggest impact. What about you what is the biggest impact in your life?

Day 06- Favorite super hero and why

I love to watch a movie when I was young. I remember I was seven years old the first time I was in the movie theater. I watch a movie with my eldest sister. I cried because the movie theater is dark. My eldest sister brings me outside for a minute and went back inside because I understand that is it only in the movie theater that is dark but not outside.

I love to watch a movie since then. I usually watch a romantic or love story movie back in my teenager years. I also love to watch American movie. I love to watch action but not much of fiction movies.

PhotobucketI have my favorite actresses like Nanette Medved and Anjanette Abayari who plays Superwoman or Darna. I love these women who played Darna. They are both sexy and very talented as well.

PhotobucketI even have an autograph picture of Anjanette Abayari which she sent me through regular mail. How I wish that they are real. I am sure that there is no crime particularly in the Philippines. They will stop all the bad guys from hurting everybody especially women.

I consider Darna or Superwoman as my favorite super hero. I am linking this entry to 6th day of blog challenge. What about you? Who is your super hero?

What sanitary pads you use when you have your monthly period?

I bought this Modess dry maxi sanitary pad back in Manila last July of 2012. It is 40 pesos or $1 for eight pads in a package.

PhotobucketI bought it in the Seven Eleven a closest convenient store near G Hotel in Roxas Boulevard where we stayed at. I was so scared walking in the dark street with my little girl with me. You still can see lights but it is not very clear. It was seven at night. I even carried my little girl with me while walking to the convenient store. My monthly period come as a surprise. I have no choice but have to buy a local sanitary pad.

I still have the two pads left in the package. I used it yesterday and I feel so itchy. I think I am allergic to that sanitary pad. I just want to use it all up.

PhotobucketI usually use the Stayfree maxi regular pads.

PhotobucketStayfree maxi is thicker than the Modess dry maxi. This one feels comfortable. Do you feel like that too when you use a different sanitary pads? What kind of sanitary pads you are using?

Day 05- A picture of somewhere you have been to

There is no place in the world that I rather be now except in the Philippines particularly in my home town, Cagayan de Oro City. I left my heart in Cagayan de Oro City. There is no place like home.

GOD is so great that HE allowed me and my daughter to visit the Philippines. I am not really looking forward for a very long flight. I am thankful that despite of the delayed and canceled of our flights; we arrived safely back home to New York. I spent most of the time with my Mom who I did not see for six (6) long years. I did not visit beautiful tourist spots but I did spend my precious time with the most important person in my life which is my Mom. I am sorry to my friends that I did not spend more time with them. I hope that you forgive me. I will let the pictures describe it for you. Please forgive me for uploading many pictures.

I never forget the moment that I am looking down at my home town, Cagayan de Oro City, up in the air.

PhotobucketIt was such a big relief when our plane, Philippine Airlines, landed in Lumbia airport on the 29th day of June 2012.

PhotobucketMy Mom and my niece P stayed with us in our hotel room. We stayed at Country Village hotel in Carmen. I wanted to stay in my Mom’s house to save some money but my little girl will not allow me. She loves the pool at the hotel we stayed.

PhotobucketThere is two free complimentary breakfast in the hotel. I let my little girl and her cousin gets the free. My Mom and I choose our own breakfast food. I am very privileged to spend my Mom’s 69th birthday too.

PhotobucketMy two sisters flew from Cebu City to spend my niece 8th birthday at Opol Beach.

PhotobucketDuring the morning, I spent my time in my Mom’s house. My little girl met her cousins and meet new friends as well. I am having a hard time using my debit cards to use when we go out. What I do is?

PhotobucketI send my Mom some money and the two of us picked it up at a pawn shop. It works this way. I can use some cash.

PhotobucketWe eat most of the time at Jollibee Vamenta in Carmen with my Mom, my two nieces D and P. My little girl loves to eat pancake and spaghetti. I also enrolled her at a Jollibee Kids club.

PhotobucketWe went to Raagas beach. The water is blurry because it rained most of the night. My little girl loves the beach.

PhotobucketWe stayed in my Mom’s room just to talk and spent quality time together. This is use to be my room when I was a teenager.

I hope that you enjoy our pictures. They are not beautiful but I am happy that I spent most of our time with my Mom and my family. I am linking this entry to the 5th day of blog challenge. Today’s task is about a picture of somewhere you have been to.

Lingerie sets that I ordered from Totsy

I have a 1,500 points or $15 credits from my Totsy account. What is a Totsy? It is an online store where you can shop from anything. It is a discount store where they sell name brand clothes for a discounted price that the store at the mall. I usually shop outfits for my little girl here.

I bought stuff for my kids and my husband usually. I seldom buy something that I like for myself. I was checking their items on sale that day. It happens that they have the lingerie on sale that day. I look for the cheapest price. I found these two sets of lingerie. I bought a ruffle hem baby doll in black and camisole in magenta color. They are on sale each for $7. I only paid the tax and shipping for a total of $7.83.

I show the lingerie sets to my husband. He was the one who received the package when the mailman came. He really likes it. I hope that I can wear them in the summer time. Do you what my problem is? I do not sleep next to my husband. He has a sleeping problem from working crazy schedules that his sleeping pattern is affected. We will see if this lingerie will end in my closet as usual.

What about you? Do you wear lingerie when your sleeping? I am linking this entry to the 6th day of blog photo challenge?

Day 04- A habit that you wish you did not have

I am on day 4th of joining this blog challenge. Today’s task is about a habit that you wish you did not have. I admit that I should make this bad habit as one of my New Year’s resolution. I have many bad habits that I wish I did not have. My husband and I always argue with this habit that always leads in fighting. He is a clean freak and I am not.


The bad habit that I wish I did not have is leaving the dishes at night in the sink. Usually, at night I am very tired after cooking and taking care of the kids. I just leave the dishes on the sink. Usually, I already rinse them. It is passed 35 minutes at nine in the morning here, yet the dishes from last night’s dinner is still in the sink. I am really a bad housekeeper, right? There are times that the sink is clean before I go to bed but that seldom happen. Even my husband will tease me that he is surprise the sink is clean when he got home from work in the morning. I know it is a habit that is easy to stop, right? What should I do to stop leaving the dishes in the sink at night? I need your advises here. I want to start a New Year with a clean sink.

What about you? Do you have a habit that you wish you did ot have? Do we have the same habit? I hope not.
