My Orchids

My brother e-mailed me these photos of my orchids in the Philippines. I have a collection of different kinds of orchids like vanda, denrobium, etc. Gardening is one of my hobbies and I love planting flowers even when I was still in the Philippines. I bought lots of orchids and I planted it in driftwoods and placed it infront of our house. Whenever they bloom, our front yard was full of different colors of orchids. My brother is the one taking care of it since I left. I'm glad they're still alive and blooming. Oh my, they're pretty! I would be happy to see my orchids blooming when we go back there.

American Idol Result: Who Got Voted Off

When hubby and I got home from church, American Idol was halfway through. I was waiting for the result of who will be voted off tonight. I was hoping it will not be Ramiele Malubay. She did not really do well last night and also last week. I agreed with Randy that her performance last night was not great. She picked the wrong song for her. She was pitchy and it was really noticeable. She needs to pay attention and chose songs, like at the beginning, or she is sure to be going home. So it was Chekezie who was voted off and Ramiel was not in the bottom 3. Maybe a lot of Pinoys here in the US voted for her. I like Brook White's voice and the way she performs. I'm predicting that Brooke White would walk away the winner.

Easter Lunch

I had no time to cook when we got off from church last Easter Sunday so hubby and I decided to buy our lunch at Golden Chick. He ordered 20 pieces of chicken tenders and it came with gravy, French fries and 5 dinner rolls. We took it home and eat it in our house. The chicken tenders, gravy, dinners and French fries of Golden Chick is not as good as those in Chicken Express in Alvarado. But we were so hungry and we ate it anyway. Just made a comparison. Too bad that we don't have Chicken Express here in Wichita Falls.

Easter Celebration

We celebrated Easter Sunday in our church with a sunrise service. Hubby and I woke up early in the morning to attend it. Hubby woke me up at 5:30 AM because the sunrise service started at 7:00 AM. After the sunrise service, we had a breakfast at the church's dining hall. We had doughnuts, baggles, cereals, deviled eggs, cakes, coffee, yogurt, juice and a lot more. I was really full and so my hubby.

After the breakfast, we had our regular Sunday church service. We had a full house and our Pastor gave a very good message about the resurrection of our dear Lord Jesus Christ. We serve a risen Savior and He's alive forevermore. All other gods are dead except our Lord Jesus Christ. He is alive and He will come again soon for His children who accepted Him as their Lord and Savior. That would be the day!

With The Little Kids

I want to share a video of the kids that I took when we went to Alvarado last week. Stacy's kids had grown especially her baby daughter Consuelo. She's so heavy and I can hardly carry her. She's a happy and good baby just like her big brother when he was a baby. Now that he's a little older, he became so hyper and he wants to walk and run around the house. I think most children are like that especially at the age of 3. They just need to be disciplined so they will grow to be good kids. I just hope that Stacy will take them to church so they will grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Kids need to hear the Word of God during their formative years so they will grow up with Christian values.

Spring Had Sprung

Winter is gone and spring had sprung. I'm so happy to see my flowers bloom once again. My daffodils were the first flowers that came back. The rest are still in the process of forming their leaves. My peach tree that I planted more than two years ago is blooming for the first time. It has those pretty pink flowers. I hope that the flowers will turn into fruits.

I'm Back

My hubby and I got back this afternoon from a 4 day out-of-town break. It was raining hard Monday night and yesterday morning. I was watching TV in Alvarado and I saw that lots of places in the Dallas area were flooded. I prayed that the rain and wind will stop when we go to Fort Worth at 2 PM yesterday for my fingerprint appointment that is required for my citizenship application. It was still raining and the wind was blowing but it was not as strong as it was during the morning. So after my fingerprints were taken, they gave me a reviewer and a CD to review for my interview so I can get my citizenship here in the US. When? I don't know. They will notify me when and according to the mail they sent me, it will take up to 240 days. That's a long wait.

We had a good time with hubby's kids and grandkids. We spent 2 nights at Robert and Shelly's house in Cleburne and another 2 nights at Manuel and Stacy's house in Alvarado. Last Sunday afternoon after the church service, Robert took us to Traders' Village in Grand Prairie. Josh said that the said place is like Mexico. Lots of Mexicans are in that place doing their business. The place reminds me of the public markets in the Philippines and majority of the people selling stuffs there are Mexicans. One thing I like in Traders' Village is that the goods and commodities there are cheaper than in the stores. I bought 14 embroidered, appliqued curtains colored pink, orange and blue. They are so pretty and you can't find those curtains in the regular stores. I even negotiated with the sales lady and she gave me discount when I told her I will buy a lot. I also bought 15 pcs. of ripe mangoes for only $9. My hubby love mangoes and he learned to love eating mangoes when he was in the Philippines. It's so expensive here compared to the Philippines. I told him we will eat a lot of mangoes to our hearts' content when we go back to my native land. We have 9 mango trees there and they're bearing fruits already.

Out Of Town

My hubby and I will be out of town for a few days. Much as I want to but I won't be able to blog or visit other blogs. We're going to visit my step-kids. My hubby will be taking his spring break so he will be on leave with pay. I'm also scheduled to have my finger prints taken in Fort Worth for my citizenship application so our vacation is double purpose. I'm so excited to see my step-kids and grandkids. I miss them.

You’ve got to love this guy... This is a true story about a recent Wedding that took place at Clemson University . It was in the local newspaper and even Jay Leno mentioned it.

It was a huge wedding with about 300 guests.

After the wedding, at the reception, the groom got up on stage with a microphone to talk to the crowd. He said he wanted to thank everyone for coming, many from long distances, to support them at their wedding.

He especially wanted to thank the bride's and his family and to thank his new father-in-law for providing such a lavish reception.

As a token of his deep appreciation he said he wanted to give everyone a special gift just from him.

So taped to the bottom of everyone's chair, including the wedding party was an envelope.

He said this was his gift to everyone, and asked them to open their envelope.

The groom had gotten suspicious of them weeks earlier and had hired a private detective to tail them.

After just standing there, just watching the guests' reactions for a couple of minutes, he turned to the best man and
Said, 'F---you!' Then he turned to his bride and said, 'F--- you!'

Then he turned to the dumbfounded crowd and said, 'I'm outta here.'

He had the marriage annulled first thing in the morning.

While most people would have canceled the wedding immediately after finding out about the affair, this
Guy goes through with the charade, as if nothing were wrong. His revenge--making the bride's parents pay over $32,000 for a
300-guest wedding and reception, and best of all, trashing the bride's and best man's reputations in front of 300 friends and family members.

This guy has balls the size of
Church bells.

Do you think we might get a MasterCard 'priceless' commercial out of this?

Elegant wedding reception for 300 family members and friends: $32,000.

Wedding photographs commemorating the Occasion: $3,000

Deluxe two-week honeymoon accommodations in Maui : $8,500.

The look on everyone's face when they see the 8x10 glossy of the bride humping the best
Man: Priceless.

There are some things money can't buy, for everything else there's MASTERCARD

Chatted With My Family

I was still sleeping when my sister Violy called and left a message requesting me to go online so we can chat. She said that their DSL has just been connected. I reluctantly got up from the bed, gargled, combed my hair and went online. I was still yawning while talking to them. It was 7:00 AM here and 8:00 PM there in the Philippines. I saw all of my family in the webcam and we talked with each other using microphones. It's good I my laptop has a built-in webcam and mic. No need to type and chat. I hear them clearly and I talked to all of them. My aunt is really getting old and she can't even remember my name. Senility sets in, he-he! She was calling me by my mom's name, lol! My siblings kept on laughing. I really miss her though and all of my family there. They kept asking when will we go there. I told them I don't know yet. We just pray to the Lord to provide the means so we can go back there. Anyway, I enjoyed talking to them and seeing all of them.

Surprise Gift

My hubby came home for lunch today and he had something for me. He handed me the plastic bag and when I opened it, I found a scrapbook photo album that he bought for me from his co-worker. I've been into digital scrapbooking in my computer but I haven't done yet in a scrapbook paper. I guess I have to learn how to do it. Hubby knows that I love doing digital scrapbook but maybe he just wants me to do it in a photo album. These stuffs are not cheap that's why I'm not really into this thing. I know that my hubby just want to please me and I really appreciate him for that.

Don't Drink Bottled Water Left In The Car

Here's one article I just read online and I would like to share this message to others because this one is worth reading.


Bottled water in your car.....very dangerous, woman!!!!
This is how Sheryl Crow got breast cancer. She was on the Ellen show and said this same exact thing. This has been identified as the most common cause of the high levels in breast cancer, especially in Australia .

A friend whose mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer said that the Doctor told her: women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.

The doctor said that the heat and the plastic of the bottle have certain chemicals that can lead to breast cancer. So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car, and, pass this on to all the women in your life. This information is the kind we need to know and be aware and just might save us!!!! The heat causes toxins from the plastic to leak into the water and they have found these toxins in breast tissue.

Use a stainless steel Canteen or a glass bottle when you can!!!

Let every one that has a wife/girlfriend and daughter know please.

As we all know, its getting hotter and hotter, what's more on Summer right?! So if you had read this too, just inform your loved ones, grandma, wife, auntie, cousin, sister, girlfriend, your friends and neighbors if they don't know about this yet. You might save their lives just for passing them this info. I will surely tell this to my mom as she always drives around.

Make sure not to leave bottled water on your cars, bring them along with you. And I think, we can assume that this not only apply to bottled water, but to all bottled drinks.

Weird Weather

Well, it's Friday once again. The days passed by so quick. Yesterday in the morning, it was snowing here but in the afternoon it stopped. The sun even came out in the afternoon. That was weird. It only shows how the weather in Texas changes so fast. We were supposed to go out and eat with our Pastor and his wife. They gonna treat us to the restaurant but when my hubby came home for lunch and it was snowing, he called the pastor to cancel our dinner and have it some other time. Besides he worked late yesterday afternoon. Now the weather is fine though it's still cold but the sun is shining bright.

My Friend Ann's Birthday

My friend Ann celebrated her birthday today in our house. We've been busy cooking this morning because her Friendster friend Wendy and her hubby will be coming over to meet her for the first time. Ann cooked chicken adobo, sinigang na bangus and lumpia. My hubby cooked mashed potatoes and made banana pudding. I cooked pecan pie and pumpkin pie last night. I cooked rice, puto and pancit today. That's our treat for her. She also invited our friend Arlene. Wendy and her hubby arrived just when we're about to finish the cooking. She's also preggy like Ann. We had lots of foods and we were full. Arlene said the foods were delicious. There were lots of leftovers and everybody had to take home some pancit and puto. Ann got some birthday presents too. She said this is the happiest birthday she ever had since she was here in Texas.
