Picture Frame

This is a  picture frame of the last supper in the dining area at home. I had this as a decor years ago and given as a family gift . The design is simple containing a picture of Jesus Christ and his disciples. The last Supper was a mural painting created by Da Vinci and there were many created photo frames that came out since then. The chocolate brown color of this frame is coordinated with the cream color of the wall paint of the dining room. I hope to find more picture frames that I can hang as decoration for home.

Cloudy Saturday

Thanks God its Saturday! I wake up early today to fix and arrange some personal things at home. The weather is not favorable with cloudy skies outside. It feels lazy to mess around and I just want to stay and relax myself from the stress of the weekdays.  I have lunch at exactly twelve o'clock, watch the noon time show on television for a while then take a nap. Rain falls early this afternoon but I have to go to the downtown district to make some updates and assignments  here and do some personal errands later. I hope the sun will shine tomorrow.

25 Years of People Power

Today marks the twenty five years since the Edsa People Power revolution in 1986. That was a crucial event that led to the nations' democracy from the dictatorship of Marcos regime. The spirit of the People Power was truly a Divine intervention because it was a peaceful uprising and ouster of the brutal and corrupt regime. Democracy was restored and this is a big  gratitude of the Filipinos today. I hope the people would continue to do what is good for the society and the country and keep up  with the people power history.

Patio Heaters

My friend  has been busy for the past months in the renovation of her home. The interiors were almost done and at this time she would like to make some landscapes in the backyard and in the garden.  I accompanied her  in buying some outdoor decors like coffee tables, plant pots, bricks, ornaments and pathway concrete designs. I even  recommended to her a Patio Heater, an appliance that could generate radiant heat for outdoor use. This is good and suited for her backyard especially that her home is often times hosting special events like family gatherings, reunions, birthdays and other party celebrations. I hope to see her new outdoors by next month then.

Cuddle Day

This is a sweet day celebration before the month of February ends next week. Cuddle is an act of cuddling someone or a person that you find special or important in your life. Embracing or holding someone close are some forms of cuddling. I think cuddling is not only meant for couples but also for siblings, families and friends. A loving gesture that is said to have good health benefits. It releases stress of life because you can feel that you are special and loved. There is that good feeling and sense of belongingness in the world. Give your love ones a sweet gesture of love on today's Cuddle Day.

New Homes and Selling Your Home

This time is just right and perfect for my cousin who had been planning to buy a new home of her own. She got married months ago and would like to settle in their own now. Her husband is also excited to have their new home and the couple requested me to help them out on it. Good timing because my other friend  who is living in Manchester is a real estate broker. She offers a selling your house privately project in the area and there are lots of latest home models to choose from. I immediately informed my cousin and she and her husband were immediately interested to avail for one unit. The sale documents are on process now and hopefully the couple will be able to transfer to their new home this coming April.

NZ Earthquake

The headline news when I watched the television last night was the magnitude 6.3 earthquake  in New Zealand particularly the city of Christchurch. There were many people missing and  the latest death toll is already 75. This shocked the people in NZ and the world. I can remember that last year this country was also struck by an earthquake. Some buildings were greatly affected by the after shocks and even the concrete roads got cracked by the strong intensity. This is so devastating to the lives of the people in that place. I hope they can recover the soonest time from this traumatic natural disaster.

Monaco Grand Prix Hospitality

It is always a dream  of me and my brother to see a  special live sporting event abroad. The feeling of being part of those activities where only the chosen few like the rich and famous can see is so exciting and wonderful. I can remember we watched together the movie Iron Man and part of the story was  about F1 racing in Monaco. This early time we are searching for online reservations in the Monaco grand prix packages so that we can avail of their best deals for us. We would like to avail of the best yet affordable package so that we will enjoy and at the same time relax for the vacation. This is our gift to ourselves, a well deserving break after all those hardships in life. I am already excited for our upcoming vacation. This would truly be a worthy trip for the two of us. I am just waiting for my booking confirmation this week and hopefully plan the coming trip after.

Real Love on Valentine

Love is patient, love is kind.
 It does not envy, it does not boast, 
it is not proud.
 It is not rude it is not self-seeking,
 it is not easily angered, 
it keeps no record of wrongs.
 Love does not delight in evil 
but rejoices with the truth.
 It always protects, always trusts, 
always hopes, always perseveres. 
Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:1-13

Gas purchase

I recently bought a tank of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). For me this is very convenient to use especially in cooking at home.  Liquefied petroleum gas, or LP gas, is one of the most common alternative fuels used in the world today. In fact, in many places, it isn't an alternative fuel at all: LP gas is a mainstay for heating and cooking in certain areas of the country. The last time I bought the tank, it cost 645 pesos and now it is 795 pesos already. According to the news the price increase was affected by the cost of fuel in the international market.

Blooming Malunggay

I stayed at this weekend and had some time with the plants in the backyard. The malunggay  (moringa) tree is blooming in green leaves. It is an exceptionally nutritious vegetable tree with a variety of potential uses. The tree itself is rather slender, with drooping branches that grow to approximately 10 m in height. In cultivation, it is often cut back annually to 1 meter or less and allowed to regrow so that pods and leaves remain within arm's reach. I have lots of the leaves to use for cooking  as this is one of the favorite green leafy vegetable. Thanks for the good weather that brought my malunggay tree  into bloom.
