I have been a member at memolink dot com since last year and I redeemed a reward from them once. I found their site before while searching a site where I could earn money at home and I just stumbled their site. As I loved to shop sometimes online, I used their site to shop so that I can earn points and redeem any rewards but it take for a while to redeem a reward if you do not shop online and if you just purchase lower price items. Well…at least you get something or you can redeem a reward when you shop online or any merchant, which are listed or available in their site. Additionally, you can find some coupons in their site and you may find your favorite store online there that offers coupons, which help you save money. To find out more, check it out or if you are interested to sign up or to know more about it, you can click my banner that you can see under my ads.

I have been a member for a while at mypoints dot com and I have earned points almost 5 thousand but I haven’t choose any merchant rewards yet, because I wanted to earn some more points so that I can get better reward. If you join and shop any stores, which listed at mypoints dot com, you will earn points and eventually once the points are enough to redeem a reward, you can do it. There is also a way in order you can earn points, you can take a survey from any sponsors but you might get mail from where you signed up but its up to you. Anyway, you can choose gift cards like sears, target, Amazon, JC Penny, border GC, Panera bread, timberland for your reward and much more! It is really a good idea as while you are shopping, you can redeem a gift card later on than shopping online that you cannot get any reward. If you would like to shop online and wanted earn points and get reward, you may want to join at mypoints dot com.

On Friday, I did shop at Walgreens gift wrappers, ribbons, and stocking stuffers and found some interesting stuff that I love to give. I spent about 30 minutes looking around at Walgreens and finally, I found what I wanted like gift wrappers, stocking stuffers etc. Soon, I need to finish wrapping the gift before we will go to Michigan.

Few days ago, I shopped at victoria secret as they have special offer. I decided to get one of their sweaters, I took an opportunity while their sweaters are still on sale and besides I need more sweater especially my husband and I will spend our Christmas in Michigan. I never had a cowlneck classic sweater and I found they have one and it looks good in the picture and decided to order one. It just arrived today, and when I opened it, the size fit on me but I did not like the color in person I thought, the color will be the same in the picture. Sometimes, shopping online can be frustrating but well…I still like the sweater but how I wish I did order the color blue and it would be look nicer on me than the powder blush marl color which you can see the picture below. I am not returning it as it can be a pain in a butt and they will deduct the shipping and the sweater is a little bit expensive as it is $39 and if it is not on sale, it could be $58. I am keeping it as I like the style and I tried it on, it feels warm and it’s perfect for winter time.

I did shop in "Victoria Secret" in WestShore Mall in Tampa, and they gave me a secret reward card and I used it on Cyber Monday and also they offer 20% off entire purchase but it's only until today (Wednesday). I purchased on Monday their great deal which is when you buy a sweater, you will get free scarf the value is $28 but only 1 per customer. I bought 2 sweaters and I paid just about $30 which is great, because I had a $10 off and 20% off entire purchase and I saved some bucks. The coupon code that I used was GET20 for 20% off entire purchase and for free scarf by purchasing their sweater is LUXE08. The sweaters that I purchased would be perfect to use when my husband and I will be in other State where we will spend this upcoming holiday season. You can see the pictures below that I purchased from Victoria Secret.

Last night, I slept a little bit late since I was a bit busy after updating my blogs and then I remember my godson’s birthday is coming and I thought I should get him a birthday present. I rely in overstock dot com site when I cannot think any website to purchase a gift. I browsed baby stuff at overstock and found cute shoes for him and for his twin sister. I thought, I should get one for his sister too as they have the same birthday as they are fraternal twins. I was grateful that I found the gift that I wanted for them. This morning, I purchased them and I hope overstock will send my gift sooner before Saturday but if it may a little bit delay or after their birthday, it will be fine as long as I got something for their birthday and I hope they will love them.

When my husband and I do not have time to shop on the store or in the mall for gift to somebody else, we rely on shopping online. It is a great help for us since it is convenient way to order and send somebody else a gift. A give thanks who did invent the computer and the internet connect or else it will be a big disappointment for us for those who do not have enough time to shop in the store. It is amazing how life is easier through having an internet connection and shopping online. Purchasing items online is great since by just the tip of your fingers, you will find what you want to buy. Anyway, before my husband’s niece birthday, I told my husband that we should shop earlier for her birthday gift but we are undecided what we are going to give to her. One day my husband’s mom called him and suggested that it would be a good idea to send her a colorful flower. Therefore, my husband and I shopped at proflower dot com shop but I told my husband before we will purchase, we should find a coupon code 1st so that we can save some bucks. We found a coupon and we purchased the flower that we wanted which was a gerbera daisies and we purchased with a chocolate and a balloon saying “Happy Birthday.” I think she loved the gift that we sent to her.

I have been shopping 3 times at Ann Taylor Loft in WestShore Mall in Tampa in just 1 week. As my husband drop me off in the mall before my doctor’s appointment, I cannot resist not to shop and stopped by at Ann Taylor to look up some of their on sale. I bought 2 tote bags which I can put my laptop and other stuff that can fit in especially large things. It was up on sale for $9.99 and since the woman gave me a 30% off, it was just $7 something for 1 bag and that was a good deal and is why I bought 2 of them. Additionally, I bought about 4 kinds of sweater which are up for sale and they are perfect at this time as we have cold weather now. I do not really like to buy a full price, I usually prefer for sale, as I do not want to see any items, which I bought for full price and was up for sale on the next day. Ann Taylor Loft is one of my favorite clothing store, even though their clothes are not that look that hot like younger adults clothes as usually they have are for formal or office attire but I loved it since it looks sophisticated and the fabric are high quality which is good for shopping, business attire, party or casual.

My friend is a seller beauty product in Mary Kay and she has a website, which she runs, and she had a contest and I joined and guess what? I won the contest, and it worth $50 of Mary Kay products and I am glad that I won so that I can try Mary Kay. I haven’t use any Mary Kay cosmetics before but my other friend who used their products likes Mary Kay and since I won, I will be able to try their beauty products and I ordered already from my friend and I hope I will receive them soon as I cannot wait to try their beauty products. Anyway, while I was browsing the Mary Kay website, I found their virtual makeover solutions which you can upload your own picture but you should be a member 1st in order you can upload a picture or you can do makeover by just using one of their model which you can see in their site. You can find the virtual makeover, you can click new products and then you can find the “virtual makeover” and you are ready to go, just click the type of lipstick that you want, eyeliner, hairstyle etc. You can see the picture below that I upload my own picture there and it seems I am look different in there but it is somewhat nice.

Couple of days ago, I did shop womens authentic sunglasses and handbags and did but I did not win of those. I did shop also a timberland boots, I found one that I like, I bid on it, and in about two days, it will be going to end. The boots that I bid is cute, new, and the bidding started at lower price. I hope I will win the timberland boots so that I can use it when my husband and I will be in Michigan before Christmas.

Filipino Dessert

Last night, I cooked maja blanca again since I missed eating it and maja blanca is a type of dessert and it can be a snack and it is not too sweet. It is made of cornstarch, milk, coconut milk and other ingredients and it is easy to prepare. It is tasty when the toppings are crushed peanuts and I have not done putting that and I will do it next time. I posted lately the picture of maja blanca in my other post. So, last night, I made more maja blanca and it serves about 8 people and it will be good for about a week for me and for my husband. I served it to my husband sometimes and he likes it. Anyway, I have better go now and I am going to eat maja blanca. And soon, the birthday of my husband is coming and I am going to make a carrot cake and once it came all right, I will post in here and share the recipe.

Last week, I got a target gift card from my in laws and I cannot wait to shop. I wanted to shop something special for myself like new jacket for the winter, new pull over that I can use when my husband will visit in other State this coming December as usually we do spend our Christmas holiday in the Midwest. It is much fun spending our Christmas there, because of the snow and it seems you feel it is really Christmas time and besides we will eat our special dinner at the country club, which I am going to shop also for new dress for me. Anyway, I am planning to shop at target soon and I want also to buy a gift for my husband’s niece as her birthday is coming up and I wanted to get something educational for her or an interesting gift for her.

Saturday, October 18, 2008

One time, my friend told me that she made a maja blanca and she gave me the recipe and by the time, I used the recipe it did not work out for me and I am certain of it that I did not follow the instruction very well as did not come out great. She told me, she followed it and it came out great for her. Last week, I tried again to make a maja blanca and just made the small one and since I followed the instruction, it came out right and I was happy about it and I am even planning to make maja blanca again since I liked it as it is not too sweet and it is simple but good.

Filipino people influenced with different cuisine like Chinese, Indian, American and Spanish, Malaysian, Indonesia etc. As you know that during the colonial period of Spaniards, we influenced some of their food like the roasted pig or lechon baboy and other desserts that brought to us and until now we do cook what they shared to our ancestors which shows our mixed culture.

Anyway, you can see the picture below of the maja blanca that I made last week and I have decided to share here in my blog. I loved it and I put the crispy coconut flakes on top, which is tasty and smells good. You can also follow the recipe that you can read below if you would like to try and it is easy and takes only about 10 minutes something like that.

4-6 serving

1/2 cup cornstarch 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup water
2 cups coconut milk (sold in Oriental food stores) 3 cups grated coconut

Mix cornstarch and sugar in a bowl. Add water and stir. In a saucepan, bring coconut milk to a boil and gradually stir in cornstarch mixture. Boil for 5 minutes, until the starch is cooked. Pour into a buttered cake pan and let cool. Spread coconut on a baking sheet and toast at 350 F. until brown. Sprinkle cake with toasted grated coconut and serve.

Yesterday, when I woke up, I did urge my husband that we should shop at Asian store as I am craving of Asian foods and he agreed to me after of my doctor’s appointment. By the time, I was in the United Oriental Foods Store. I was excited and feel of joy since I can buy any type of Asian food that I want but compare to Oceanic Market in Tampa, they do not have variety of vegetables that I wanted to buy like the sweet potato leaves and how I wish they had it. Well…I was still glad that they have various kinds of Asian vegetables and their tomatoes is even cheaper as it just 99 cents and there are 3 of them and other products they have are lesser than the real store here in the States. It is true as what I have observed and I even told my husband that their vegetables are a little bit cheaper. We usually paid more than $100 in other grocery store here but we just paid yesterday around $90 and I thought we will pay more than that and besides I got 1 big soy sauce free from them.

When I was living in my homeland country Philippines, what I knew is just cooking rice and cooking some dish but one special that I knew is just on how to make a fruit salad which is one of the easiest one to make. Even when I still live in Philippines before I like to cook but I did not learn on how to bake or cook desserts. By living here in the States for almost 4 years and sometimes, I do not have anything to do here in the condominium and I searched online what kind of dessert, which is easy to follow and it came up into my mind that I should make a banana cake and will try and will follow the instruction. On last week of Wednesday, I searched the banana cake recipe and I found out, which you can read it below. I followed it and came out great which I am really proud of myself and I am amazed and my husband proud and happy for me which I made a banana cake for the 1st time which the taste is addictive and very delicious. I could not even believe it is very tasty and there is really something that it makes it yummy and as I put 4 pieces of mashed bananas and it smells good and it taste like heaven (lol). You can see the picture below of the banana cake that I baked for the 1st time and the sliced one with ice cream on top as my husband likes it (yummy). What do you think?

• 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 tablespoon baking soda
• 1 pinch salt
• 1/2 cup unsalted butter
• 1 cup white sugar
• 3/4 cup light brown sugar
• 2 eggs
• 4 ripe bananas, mashed
• 2/3 cup buttermilk
• 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
• 1 teaspoon of extract vanilla (I add it and it was not in original recipe and since vanilla smells good I put one teaspoon and that was just my idea)
• 2 small box of raisins (I added raisins and that was my also idea as instead of chopped walnuts, I put raisins) so, I consider it is somewhat revise recipe that you can find in here)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour 2 - 8 inch round pans. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, soda and salt; set aside.
2. In a large bowl, cream butter, white sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Mix in the bananas. Add flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk to the creamed mixture. Stir in chopped walnuts. Pour batter into the prepared pans.
3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, and place on a damp tea towel to cool.

By the time, I checked in the oven, I saw it is not yet enough browny or cook enough and then I let it stay in the oven for few minutes and below is the finish product which is more cracked and brown and it is delicious!

Hubby and I decided to go shopping shoes for him at premium outlet mall in Orlando which located in International Drive . We went there at around 12:30 and hubby wanted a new balance shoes as that is one of his favorite shoe brand. When we arrived at the outlet store, I was getting excited as everything that I wanted is there and makes me think (wohoooo nice lol) and makes me do not know where to go as any branded products are there, you name it! Hubby went to new balance store and I told him, I will meet him in the next door where I went to Dooney and Bourke store and after about 30 minutes, my phone rang and only to find out hubby is the one calling me and I told him he can meet me next door and when I saw him, he had a big bag and I asked him how many did he buy and he said “3 pair of shoes” and I said, what? I told him, “that is a lot” (lol) and he said, I need all of them so that next time, I do not need to buy shoes (ha-ha) and he said he good some good deal and that is why he bought 3 pair of shoes. He paid about $180 and you can see the picture that he bought.

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

I was thinking I need to buy new pair diamond earrings as what I have is so tiny which is barely to see and I have decided to shop at overstock dot com where a place that I shop for almost everything if I do not go to the mall. I was skeptical about it to buy a new pair of earrings as I do not see it in person, but it has a good review, so I have decided to buy it. It such a cute and lovely earrings that I ever have, I suppose to buy just a white gold but I was thinking that the gold is match to my watch and rings, so I chose the gold and I am happy with my purchase. I just have few earrings and I buy earrings very rare and last week, I decided to buy earrings. You can see the picture of diamond earrings that I bought at overstock dot com.

When were there and hubby was done buying shoes that he wants, I told him, I need to shop too as it was an opportunity for me to buy that I want in there even just few items. I told him, he can wait me at starbucks and he agreed and makes me feel happy as I can roam around and look some items that I might wanted to buy, even though I do not have really enough time but I was still glad that I have 1 hour to shop.

I was thinking I need new skirts, new blouses, and pants as what I have now are a bit small for me since I gained some weight which is annoying for me. I decided to shop at Ann Taylor and I found clothes which are fit for me and they are on sale mostly that I chose are worth $10 and I hurriedly shop since hubby just gave me 1 hour to shop and he might be tired waiting for me at starbucks too. I spent about 30 minutes at Ann Taylor clothing store and found what I wanted. You can see the picture below of clothes that I bought from the store and I am happy that I got new clothes.

I wanted to buy a big shoulder bag but I do not have enough time to roam around and I was in a hurry that time since hubby was waiting for me while I was shopping. It is hard for me to shop and look the products that I want when hubby is waiting or shopping together with me but I do not have a choice as we just suppose to shop shoes for him but I missed shopping as I did not do it for a while and I want to treat something for me. I did not find the kind of shoulder bag that I wanted to buy at Dooney and Bourke in Premium Outlet Mall in Orlando and while just roaming around in the store, I found a cute medium wristlet and I hurriedly pay it as my phone was ringing and I was thinking that was my hubby asking where I am and where I am going to meet him. I wanted more to shop, but I do not have time, so I was thinking, I could shop later again at the mall without my hubby so that I can shop around with no hurry at all. You can see my cute new slim wristlet stylish from Dooney and Bourke and it is fit for my camera, cell phone and my tiny wallet. I loved it!

My husband and I stayed for about 2 days in Marriott in Tampa and so I have time to meet my friend and I get chance to go on shopping. My good friend named Malyn who lives in Tampa, she and I decided to go on shopping in International Mall. We went there around 12 noon as we planned to eat our lunch in there too. The International Mall in Tampa is my favorite mall since it is big and Dillard’s store is there. Before we get in, we planned already to buy some dressy clothes in Dillard’s, as we knew sometimes they do have 20-50% and we did not miss looking what they have on sale. We found out they have shorts, skirts, dresses, leggings, blouse etc. and I bought about 8 pair of shorts, 2 skirts and one tube and you can see the picture here the clothes that bought. You may think I paid alot of that but it is not true since the leggings suppose to be about $10 but they are on sale $3 which is a good price, and the shorts are about $3-7 each but the denim short worth about $20. Well, I loved Dillard’s alot and soon, my friend and I will be going to shop in International mall again and will be going to shop more in Dillard’s dept. store.

My husband and I went on a cruise recently, in the ship, they do have a cosmetic store, we do not have any plans on that night, and I decided to shop in cosmetic store. They do have branded and great beauty products there such as esteeluader, Clinique, smashbox, lancome, you name it, they mostly have in there. One thing that it gives me interests is there DermaNew Facial Rejuvenation system. The sales clerk did told me it is very nice as what they are using nowadays and I was skeptical about it since I do not easily believe but I did give a try especially I have a skin damage or sunburn due that my husband and I did snorkel alot in Cozumel and also in Cayman Island. It was hot in there and even though we did use sun lotion to avoid sunburn but it seems the lotion that we used did not give any effect as we are sunburned on our face. I have decided to buy the “DermaNew Facial Rejuvenation System.” When I get back from our cabin, I did use it and I felt my face smoothens, softens, and makes me feel confident and until now, I am still using it about 2-3 times a week. The product smoothes away the appearance of wrinkles and skin blemishes, reduces pore size and gives skin radiant and healthy. The reason why I bought it, because I believe it will work and also gives me a good feeling and I love pampering myself or taking care specially when it comes in beautifying myself. Furthermore, the product is Beautiful sleek ergonomic design, waterproof for convenient use in the shower, built-in 2-minute timer for perfect applications, counter-top stand for clean convenient storage, teardrop applicators to reach into fine corners of your face and facial pore cleansing brush for deep pore cleansing. I bought it in the ship for $65 tax-free which I felt happy about it and you can see the picture below of DermaNew Facial Rejuvenation System from my camera.

My husband and I went on the cruise on Royal Caribbean and we went on “Mariner of the Seas” and they have called “Promenade” and where a place people can do shopping, drinking and to have a party. They have one cosmetic store there, I have decided to look around, and find a concealer as I have a dark circles sometimes and I do not like it. I suppose to buy one concealer from other brand but the sales clerk recommends me the “photo finish color correcting foundation” which is from smashbox brand. I tried it a little bit from the tester and I liked it and decided to buy it and it cost me $31 in the ship and tax-free and if you buy it online or in the store and it might cost you $38. I recommend the photo finish color correcting foundation to women who likes to try new product. It is color correcting, wrinkle reducing, and dark spot defying. I used this correcting foundation when before I use make up and I can say it even look nice wearing itself and I loved it. I told my sister that she must buy one for herself or try this color correcting foundation. You can see the picture below the one that I bought.

I went to shop in TJ-Max and looking clothes and shoes and while roaming around, I caught my attention some nice handbags and one that I liked is the “Dooney and Bourke. It looks perfect for me as some part of it are made of leather and when you see it in person, it is durable and worth the price and it will last long. I paid it about $100 and I never bought a handbag worth like that. It supposes to be $245 but it is on sale and besides TJ-Max offer low prices than other store even though the products are signature. For a long time, one of our neighbor here told me that in TJ-Max has branded products which are affordable price and my good friend told me also they have clothes which are fit to my size and I did give a try and found out I like to shop in there started last month. I did shop about 5 times in TJ-Max while staying there in Indianapolis and I always felt happy buying their products that are lower prices than other store. The store is simple but their products are great especially their shoes, handbags, clothes and others that you need or wants.

My husband and I decided to shop today since we do not have any left in our ref. as we have been gone for 4 mos. here in our condominium. The food that we had been rotten and I threw some food that is not palatable and I saw some that has mold on it. We bought a bunch of foods today but I forgot some ingredients for the dessert that I suppose to make but it is all right, as when my other Filipina friend will have a chance we are going to shop in Asian store. I could buy milk coconut, nestle cream, condensed milk and other food that I wanted to buy too. Anyway, we paid of our grocery shopping over $200 it seems we are doing shopping in “Sam’s Club” too. Normally when we do grocery, we just pay $100 something, I just get excited putting any foods that I wanted in the cart as it is been a long time we have not done any shopping as when we are in Indianapolis. We just do shop rarely in there as we eat out often and that is caused make us gain weight by eating out too much. Last night, I forgot to make a list for our grocery shopping as usually make a list before we go shopping. Well…I had fun shopping together with my husband.

Sway Video Song

It is been for a while I have not updating this blog of mine and I decided to post a new one here which is a song that I love. I liked the song alot that you can play in here too and I kept repeating playing it as it’s one of the songs of my husband and I wedding song in our video and listening it makes me fall in love more, whew! It sang by Bic Runga but I guess it is a remix one and it was played in the movie “American Pie,” I really loved this song alot. When I went back in Philippines on year 2006 visiting my family, I heard it played alot in the bar, store or everywhere which is cool and I was surprised by the time my husband and I video during our wedding it is a background song which is great and I was surprised and makes me happy. If you haven’t heard it or you like “Sway” song, play the video below. Have fun listening and joined with her singing the song.

Sleepless at Night

Last night, I did not sleep early as I did visiting some other blogs and asked them if the will like to exchange links with me. I did sleep last night about 1am and I do not like sleeping so late as in the morning makes me lazy to wake up and makes me over sleep. In addition, if I sleep every night makes me have a cold and feel sleepy during the day but the good thing is that I am not working nowadays. It is hard to tackle the task during the day when you are sleepless and I wanted to take a nap as I feel sleepy but when I am in the bed makes me cannot sleep, because my mind is wondering and it is somewhat annoying. I feel sometimes that I am tired and wanted to sleep but not tired enough to sleep, I am sure you guys did experience like that.

Tomorrow, my husband and I will go to part of Kentucky as he will be going to do something in there and I will go with him. Today, is somewhat busy for me as I did pack some of our stuff for about 4 days. Sometimes, it is kind of tiresome to keep packing stuff as on Saturday we did went somewhere also in Kentucky and I did pack our stuff and did laundry and today packing stuff again (lol) it seems funny huh! But I do love to go somewhere as experience and it seems my life is kind of adventure as my husband and I likes to have fun as we like to try new things and visit new places. It is hard for me to work since my husband likes to travel and he wants I will go with him. I liked working so that I have my own money and I can buy whatever I want but it’s alright since he gave me also an allowance per month. I worked before but then I am tired of my work and I did quit and I planned also to study medical course but I do not know yet when it will happen as I keep planning it and it seems I feel tired also of studying as I have been studying about 5 years in college in PI but I guess if I will study it is not yet too late since I am not that old. Perhaps, I will work again but I wanted in the office or in the hospital or maybe to become a massage therapist.

As a wife, I do manage in the house like cleaning, cooking, doing laundry and checking if our ref. is still full of foods. My husband sometimes helped me to clean up our condo but I do not really bother him to help me out as I knew he is tired of his work and my job being a wife is not that heavy to taking care of our place as I do not even clean everyday. Since I am not working nowadays, I am free whatever I may want to do and I can wake up late in the morning or sleep late at night. I do laundry once a week and that is not a hard chore but sometimes it annoys me especially when it comes in folding as it is a tedious one. I did laundry today while staying here in the hotel as this coming Thursday; we are going to other town. I am just proud of myself I did a lot of laundry today and managed to fold them all without stopping. Once, I accomplished things that I planned to do make me feel good of myself, do you feel that way too?

This afternoon, I wanted to have a dinner in P.F Chang’s China Bistro as I felt like it to eat noodles with mixed veggies. I did urge my husband to eat in there but he said we eat often there and I thought about it but he said he felt to eat somewhere besides in P.F Chang’s. We did not really plan where we are going to eat our dinner. What we did we just walk to the downtown and found out the “Champs Restaurant.” I was really hoping I will convince my husband to eat in P.F Chang’s before we order but I didn’t. So, my husband and I ordered in Champs restaurant and he order a Patty Melt $9.99 which you can see in the 1st picture below which comes with crispy onion rings and I did order their veggie burger $9.45 which comes with shredded lettuce, sliced tomato, 2 small slice of pickled cucumber, few slices of onions, mushrooms and comes also with crispy hot waffle fries on the side which you can see in the picture and it was delicious food that we ordered and definitely will go back in “Champs Restaurant” and it is very popular as when we were there it was alot of people and inside is very roomy, comfy and with some flat screen TV, the service is good and the food are excellent. My husband did pay of overall about $36 which includes the tip and his 2 glasses of beer. I consider it was a good experienced dining at “Champs Restaurant.”

After my husband and I ate one of the good restaurants here in Indianapolis, we did decide to buy a new hat for him. We found a hat after that we did roam around I spotted a store which they have shoes which are on sale and I told my husband he can sit down and wait me and he agreed. I did not find the shoes that I am looking for. I decided to see him where he was seating but when I get there he was not there. I tried to find him in the mall in few minutes and when I see him he was holding a “Godiva” bag and he said he bought a chocolate for me and it so sweet of him. I liked Godiva chocolate since it is a fine one and what he bought has variety of flavor such as strawberries, hazelnut and cream and others and you can see here in the picture which has different kind of shapes too and in the box there are 16 pieces of chocolate. I asked him how much he paid for it and he said about $27 something included tax. When we arrived in the hotel, we did eat some of it and drink milk hmmm…very tasty. Would you like some? (lol).

Healthy Food

This afternoon, I was really hungry and I asked my husband if do we need to eat outside but he was not hungry at all as we ate our lunch about 2pm and in about 6:30 makes so hungry. Since I ate potato for lunch makes me wanted to eat real food for my dinner. I went to find a fast food but I cannot find and then I was looking around nearby the hotel that we staying right now, I found a “Quizno’s Sub Sandwich Shop” and I ordered a veggie sandwich with a medium size of bread which made of wheat and comes with shredded lettuce, sliced tomato, olives, onions and mushrooms. It was a good dinner for me and it was healthy one. I am proud of myself when I do not eat too much processed foods or fried foods.

I do like to eat sometimes in the restaurant as I feel tired sometimes to cook and it is good to be pampered. I try to eat healthy food as I would like when I get older I do not feel a lot of pain in my body. I had a thesis when I was in college which is about “Healthy Food Intake to Man” and one that I never forget that “whatever you may eat right now will be your future tomorrow” and I believed in that, because liked if you eat a lot of protein in once a week or too much salt in your food and eventually there will be a result of that. It is good to be healthy and watch we eat. There are alot of people that I noticed; they eat too much crap food which is unhealthy and I cannot deny sometimes I eat also crappy food like too much cheese, chips and other processed foods and we feel sometimes like to eat it and once we tried it we feel like to eat more especially the food that we like. I remember, I ate French fries often and it is tasty and smells good but I knew it is oily but it is very tasty though especially when it is hot and sprinkled with seasoning (yum) and nowadays, I just eat French fries rarely when my husband order a burger and I steal some of his fries. Well…it is good to be healthy and having a good health can make us happy and that is an important besides money. When I am sick, I think differently, I said to myself, I do not need anything except being healthy. We should take care of ourselves in order to be happy and healthy.
