Sinugbang Tamban

Last night, we ran out of stock in the refrigerator that’s why my mom and dad rushed to the market to buy something for our viand. Then they came home with a kilo of fish. It was a tamban (sardines fish) and they said they wanted to have it grilled. It was one of my favourite dishes as a child and I got very excited with their idea. During our dinner, I wasn’t really able to help myself but eat it with my bare hands! I missed eating it and it would be the best if eaten with boiled sweet potatoes!

Asian Secrets

Do you know the latest thing that’s “in” today when it comes to whitening?! It is a product that is endorsed by Solenn Heusaff, and it is called “Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub”. It is a beauty treatment by a luxurious Javanese ritual called Lulur. A lot of women already said it was effective that is why I got convinced to buy one. Today will be the first time I am using it and we’ll try to see if it really works.

The BB Craze

I was browsing thru my facebook account when I saw one of my high school friend’s wall status which says: “Yahoo! I finally got my BB”. I wondered what “BB” really meant. I thought it was just a short cut for “Baby”. But when I asked my gay friends about it, they kept on laughing at me because I am not updated with the BB craze. Then they told me that BB stands for “Blackberry”. And yes, I know what a blackberry phone is. And I just don’t know why everyone is wishing for such phone and I am not one of them. It’s expensive and too luxurious. I think it’s only for people who are rich and famous. It is for those who don’t know how to spend their money anymore.

Straight Talk

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.

Straight Talk has a never ending aim to provide the need of its consumers and patrons. From their Hook, line and sinker deal, they now have another offer for their beloved customers—the Android on Straight Talk deal. Consumers, most especially, the teens will surely be glad about this!

Personally, I’m not quite familiar with how this “Android” thing works. But surely, the reason why I switched to Straight Talk is because of their unlimited service. Straight Talk can cater Everything you need. From unlimited calls, text and web service, I can be assured that I can Call a friend any time to and from any states. Straight Talk guarantees that they provide great nationwide coverage and excellent reception/connectivity. You will definitely get more than what you pay for! I feel richer as I save a lot of money every month because if I compare it to my previous plan, my bill is cut into half! It is definitely the most budget-friendly unlimited plan service that I have ever known. What’s more convincing is that you can have a Straight Talk plan without being tied to a contract. Meaning, you can switch anytime if you feel like you don’t like their service (which I think would not happen). With Straight Talk, you get a straight service at a straight price! There would definitely be no surprises!

Tumblebugs Craze

My mom used to be so crazy about Zuma de Luxe. But now, her latest craze is Tumblebugs. It is also similar to Zuma, but the characters are just lady bugs and other kinds of bugs. We understand that she enjoys playing the game. It seems to be her “past time”, a way for her to relax. It’s just that sometimes; she abuses her privilege to play. My dad is always pissed off whenever she sleeps very late at night because she’s already very hooked with her game. As much as we want to make her stop, we just can’t because she’ll find every reason just so we can let her play. I just hope she could realize our point very soon.

Wacoal Brassiere

Wacoal Bras are new to my ears. One time, there were imitations of Wacoal Bras displayed at the night market and I got so intrigued with it. I bought one and because it is only an imitation, it didn’t last for quite a long time. Now, I wanted to buy one. My officemate’s sister is a dealer of Wacoal and she lent me her latest brochure. However, I got discouraged to buy because it is quite expensive. It will cost me 10% of my monthly pay if I’ll buy one. I just hope my salary would increase soon so that I could really buy one.

My mom loves to shop for ukay-ukay. Ukay-ukays are second hand goods like clothes, bed sheets, blankets and curtains. It is far different from a garage sale because in an ukay-ukay shop, you have to dig into a pile of second hand goods to find a shirt or pants that’s still in good condition. I am always against the idea to buy ukay-ukay. But now that I earn my own money, I got influenced by my high school friends who love to shop ukay-ukay. Last Saturday was the first time that I bought ukay-ukay and I realized that it is so fun, especially when you are accompanied with friends!

California King Bed

You know my favourite song of the month?! It’s Rihanna’s “California King Bed”. I really don’t know why I seem to like this song so much. Maybe because I could relate with it.. or maybe I just liked the way she sang the song. Among Rihanna’s songs, I think only two of them are my favourites: Take a Bow and California King Bed. My mom even yelled at me in disgust because I keep on playing the song loudly in my room and I sing with it loudly. And now she’s pissed off with me. Hahaha!

Early Payroll

Does getting an early payroll an advantage or a disadvantage?! Our company is following the 15-30 pay day schedule but most of the time; our chief accountant makes sure that our salaries will already be given to us two or three days before the expected dates. This month, our salaries will be credited will be five days before the 30th. And I think it’s too early for the salary. We have to wait more or less 20 days for the next pay day to come. And that would be a disadvantage isn’t it?! The only advantage for early payroll is that you’ll get to enjoy early. But for people who are one day millionaires, then I guess they will suffer longer than the days they will enjoy.

Mending a Broken Heart

Often times, relationships end in a way that we least expected or we least pray for, should I say. I mean, everybody wants to have a fairytale ending of our respective relationships. However, as much as we want everything to end that way, it is inevitable to sometimes experience a tough break-up once or twice in our life (thrice would be too much! haha). Most of the time, what happens is that one of the parties just woke-up one day and he/she realizes that he/she doesn’t love the other anymore and knowing that fact, the other would end up having a so-called “broken heart”. I have lots of friends who experience such and the hardest process, they say, is mending the broken parts back into a whole. Therapies and dealing with loneliness are just some of their ways of mending. But if you ask me, prayer is the only key to complete healing. If one does that, you’ll get to realize that the most secure and the happiest life is a life with God.

Make Perfect Scents

There are days that we don’t like the smell of our bedrooms anymore. Sometimes even if you clean your entire room, you are not still satisfied at how it smells. If you have that problem and you don’t want to spend way too much, I have a very simple solution to you. Here’s a stylish way to spread aroma throughout the room, without forking over so much cash:
Fill a small, clear glass vase or bottle with aromatherapy oil that’s powerfully fragrant (try lavender). Then snip off the ends of barbeque sticks and insert (flip them over whenever you want to refresh the intensity). Breathe in the scent of your rooms perfect scents.
