Flats from AsianVogue Shop

6/29/2012 06:08:00 PM 2 Comments

Last May, I won P1000 worth of GC from Pursuit of Nana blog x AsianVogue shop.
I was so excited to use the GC right away so I ordered for a flats. Yipee!
My flats arrived last June 21 and definitely exceeded my expectation.
I love the style, color and fit.
AsianVogue shop has a wide variety of shoes and bags which are affordable and of good quality.
They are also very accomodating to your orders and updates you from time to time through
their well-updated facebook and multiply account.
Although, there might be some delays (due to shipping, customs, etc) I suggest you order ahead of time around a month or two from the time you wish to use it. 
I highly recommend AsianVogue for fashionista students, working ladies and moms like me! 
I hope to buy from them again soon. :)

My new flats from AsianVogue :)

Again, Thank you AsianVogue Shop and Nana Lopez of Pursuit of Nana for the giveaway!
May God bless you both! :)

A Letter to My Children About Marriage

6/22/2012 05:09:00 PM 0 Comments

Image courtesy of:

Dear Children,
Should the Lord give you the good gift of a husband or wife, and I hope He does, there are a few things I want you to know. Things that you may not hear from anyone else, and certainly not on TV or other media. Sadly, your church may not even tell you.
Marriage, sweet little people, is not for the purpose of your happiness. Happy as I want you to be and hope you will be, you must yet understand that marriage is God’s design and His purposes must be pursued in order for you to be truly happy. His end is holiness and He will use all things in a life devoted to Him to fulfill that end.
To my girls:
Marry a man whose first pursuit is Christ. After that, he is not hard to please. Admire him, cheer him on and show gratitude, and he will fall over himself trying to please you. Smile often, speak well of him always, and do whatever necessary to try and maintain a pleasant mood about you so that it transfers to your home, making it a place where he and your children love to be.
You’ll have bad days of course, crying days even, and that’s when you go to your bedroom, kneel on the floor and beg the Lord to carry you. Then get up, get a fresh perspective (crayons will come off the wall), and try again. Above all else, make a home.
To my boys:
Marry a woman whose first pursuit is Christ. After that, she may be hard to please  only if you don’t know “the secret”. What is that? I’m glad you asked. The secret to pleasing your wife is to make her feel safe and treasured. You may have to move out of your comfort zone to do this at times. She won’t always readily translate the oil change to love, though it means that. But let me give you a “secret question”–a question you need to ask her often. It’s not just in the asking, though. Be sure to focus your eyes on hers, maybe even touch her shoulder or face, and then ask: “What’s on your mind these days? “ And then be ready to listen. She wants you to draw her out. She will perceive this as your protection over the matters of her heart. Tenderness, listening, protection. That’s what she wants.
To you all:
If your wife or husband does something really stupid, forgive. If they do it again, forgive again. Forgiveness must be the propelling force in your lives each day. Dwell on the strengths, push out thoughts of their weaknesses. Take every thought captive–choose to love.
Here’s that part you are not going to hear often:
If you find yourself “not happy”, having lost attraction, disinterested, etc., you are not permitted to even think about a divorce. If you find yourselves arguing more and more, don’t think for a minute that “the children will be better off out of this”, because they won’t.
The vows you took on your wedding day were not suggestions. They were covenant vows, before a Holy God, family and friends, to stay with this person the rest of your life, even if you don’t feel like it. You swore a solemn oath and if you can’t live up to it, don’t get married. Decide up front that your marriage is irrevocable. There is far more motivation for getting along if your “marriage house” has no door.
Do not share intimate thoughts or feelings with anyone of the opposite sex. Do not find yourself alone for any length of time with such either.
Divorce is not a “private option”. It will affect multiple families for many generations. When you “separate what God has joined” you permanently injure far more than just yourself.
Guard your marriage as fiercely as you would guard your own life. Treat your spouse as an extension of your flesh, just as God sees you. Treat your spouse like other family members. You know, “you gotta love ‘em, they’re the only family you’ve got”.
I want you to be happy, I surely do. But I will pray for you to be holy.

Photo Diary : Andres' First Day of School

6/20/2012 09:34:00 AM 0 Comments

Here are some of my son's First Day of School photos. 
I had to delete some because I didn't set the DSLR to automatic and had so many blurred
and dimmed pictures. Noobie me! :))

Ready for school!

Their play area

My son playing with his new classmates.

Inside the classroom.

Andres enjoyed his first day although some of his classmates are naughty and noisy.
I am so happy that my son is well-behaved and now serious to study than last year.
I am looking forward to a good and productive school year for Andres.

Go Andres! :D

Energizer and Nuffnang bring you “The Amazing Spider-Man”

6/18/2012 09:02:00 PM 0 Comments

Energizer and Nuffnang power my life through… bringing out the best events such as seminars/workshops, parties, movie screenings and more (Nuffnang) while, Energizer has been a household name for most of us when it comes to batteries because of its good quality and cost efficiency.

As a mom, I love to take pictures of my kids' firsts and be able to capture each precious moments. And to do so, there's only one brand I trust and love, Energizer. 
We use Energizer not only on our digital camera but also on our remote controls, wall clocks, battery powered toys, door bell and so much more. Indeed, Energizer lives up to its name, 

"Makers of the World's Longest Lasting Batteries." 

And the amazing part is, Nuffnang and Energizer is bringing us "The Amazing Spider-man."
Who wouldn't know Spider-man anyway? 
Of course, we do ALL know HIM! :)

Thanks to Nuffnang and Energizer for this cool treat! Yey!

Peter Parker (Garfield) is an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents’ disappearance – leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr. Curt Connors (Ifans), his father’s former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors’ alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero. -Written by Columbia Pictures

Here's an official trailer too! 
I am soooo excited to watch this on the big screen, how about you? :)

This is an old photo of me wayback 2006-2007. 
So sorry for the poor photo quality. >.<
We were trying to imitate something (a commercial, i guess), that's why my hair was like that..
It looks like we're doing the sun's ray on my hair.. Forgive me for the memory gap.
But seeing this photo, made me laugh.
Hahaha. Silly me.

More throwback photos soon.
