High fashion eyeglasses @

How You Can Start Spending Smart when it comes to your eyeglasses? At Zenni Optical items start as low as $ 8 Rx eyeglasses. Spending our hard earned money for eyeglasses, Zenni Optical allows us to own multiple fashionable eyeglasses. Why? They are selling frames and lenses with quality and at reasonable prices. At costs unparalleled to others. How? They sell directly their manufactured products to end consumers thus eliminating mark ups that make the cost higher.

Have a glimpse of three pairs of eyeglasses (see pictures) that can definitely suit your outfit for any occasion. My favorite high fashion eyeglasses is the rimless pure titanium plate which is perfect for a formal occasion while the stainless steel frame with acetate temples looks good for office use. Going out on a weekend, try acetate full-rim plate to match the groove.

There is lot more to choose from so don’t forget to visit Zenni Optical and find out how reasonable the prices are and how great the designs are.

Family events & activities @ Yovia

Calling all kids and parents out there residing in the states. Here comes which brings fun and exciting events and activities for the whole members of the family. The website is offering a daily calendar of events and activities in different areas in the US. You can check out your field of interest or personal preferences and maybe consider the location of any event or activity being presented.

As a mother, I know involving my kids with different events and activities will make them know their field or fields of interest, and not only that. It helps them on their physical development and socializing will help on their mental development. It is kind of sad that we don’t have a specific site like this in the Philippines so I need to check on different websites or ask people I know. Hope there will be one soon so that families could take a time out after a week’s tiring work, schooling and chores and have great time and fun joining such activities and events.

Another thing to consider also is their widget that can give you a hefty $1,000. How? First, install the specific widget they have on their site onto your blogs, websites or social networking profile. If your account gets the most number of views among others then the $1,000 bucks is all yours. So what are you waiting for? Hurry!!! Check them out and install the widget. Time is of the essence here pals.

Tawa Tawa tea (Gatas Gatas) for dengue

As I was busy with my farm @ FarmVille (Facebook app), hubby told me about a certain weed that can cure dengue. We searched on Google about it and found several articles attesting on the effectiveness of this weed. Glad hubby’s technical supervisor has this on his backyard and we are planning to have ours in a rectangular box to have it freely grow in abundance. It is better to be prepared at all times than to be sorry. Below is the Tawa Tawa (or Gatas Gatas to others) tea preparation:
  • Take 5 to 6 full whole Tawa Tawa plants.
  • Cut off the roots, throw it away, it is not included in the tea.
  • Wash and clean
  • Fill your boiling pot with clean water.
  • Boil the Tawa Tawa for 1 (one) minute in a slow rolling boil.
  • Pour the tawa tawa water and let cool.
  • Let the dengue fever victim drink only the tawa tawa water for 24 hours.
  • Sip 1 to 1.5 glasses of tawa tawa water every 1 hour

Housewife @ Work's Facebook account

I already got a Facebook account. It all started from invites that reached my email, hearing it from TV and lastly when a friend showed me how it works. At first, I had a second thought of joining because I am afraid not to return the favors my friends will do for me. Also, I thought it’s more of socializing and chatting with online friends. But when that friend introduced me the vast list of games I can deal with I got interested to have my own account.

At night when I am in front of the computer and doing my online stuff I really feel sleepy knowing that I am the only one awake. Glad to know Facebook to keep me awake and do short time entertainment to help me carry out for the rest of the night. I already tried FarmVille, Farm Land, Barn Buddy, and several others. From time to time I check on my farms to know if time to harvest, weeding, watering and removing bugs.

My kids were happy to see the farm and they promise me to take care of it. Hope my incoming neighbors will be generous to dole out some gifts to me. big grinbig huglove struckkiss

PGMA @ Le Cirque & Bobby Van's Steakhouse

angryat wits' endliarthumbs down

Dinner for $20,000 and $15,000 for PGMA and her entourage, moral or immoral? These luscious and expensive dinners at Le Cirque and Bobby Van’s Steakhouse were hitting the tri-media for several days already. Left and right mudslinging among politicians, writers, broadcasters and government officials proliferated. But how such an issue will end? What us as Filipinos need to learn from these happenings? How our law makers should fairly act on this matter? We are only talking about dinner here. What about the other expenses of PGMA and the whole entourage? Is there really a need to accept the invitation considering the problems on hand?

Morality is an issue to every person but moreover to a public servant because it involves the common good. To be a leader is to be of service and to serve as good example. Said dinners being sponsored by 2 congressmen can already be considered as “indirect bribes” on the part of PGMA. No wonder why overwhelming love and respect where shown on former President Cory. She truly characterized the essence of a true leader.

Only a strong political will can truly eliminate corruption in our country. For now maybe we can’t do something about it because they are in control. But the coming May 2010 election gives us hope and power as well to choose wisely leaders who are really deserving. We need leaders who are God-fearing, selfless, morally upright and do things for the common good and not for the chosen few.

4 honor guards met the Aquino family

One thing noticeable since the death of the former President Cory Aquino till she laid to her final resting place was the behavior of her son Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” Aquino III and 4 daughters namely Maria Elena "Ballsy" A. Cruz, Aurora Corazon "Pinky" A. Abellada, Victoria Eliza "Viel" A. Dee, and actress-television host Kristina Bernadette "Kris" Aquino-Yap. In time of their mourning and despite certain issues, they all showed how educated they are and as to how their parents molded them.

The latest issue about the Aquinos was that they personally thanked the four honor guards (Private First Class Antonio Cadiente, Airman 2nd Class Gener Laguindam, Navy Petty Officer 3 Edgardo Rodriguez, and Police Officer 1 Danilo Malab, Jr.) for heavily stood up on their mother’s casket from the Manila Cathedral to the Manila Memorial Park amidst the sunlight and rains for nine hours without any break. See video here.

The four guards are truly deserving on the recognitions, cash rewards, gifts and commendation they continuously receiving up to now. Let us all pray that they will make it on the Guinness. Bravo!!!thumbs upapplauseparty

Willie on Pres. Cory's funeral cortege @ Wowowee

Willie Revillame and his noontime show Wowowee is amidst again of another controversy. It resulted on the day of former President Cory Aquino’s remains transfer from La Salle Greenhills to Manila Cathedral last Monday.

Issue: Willie ordered that the live video streaming being aired simultaneously with his show Wowowee be removed.

Willie explained that he finds it inappropriate to show the funeral cortege of the former president simultaneously with his show because the two are conflicting occasions and in respect for President Cory.

For me, at one side Willie has his point. Wowowee is a fun-filled show and the funeral cortege of the former president was really very heart-breaking and tear-jerking one. He admitted that it’s not that he didn’t want it to be shown simultaneously with Wowowee but he finds it very awkward. On the other side, Willie could have finds the right approach and the right timing to say his piece.

With the turn out of the said event, the love and respect was really overwhelming, the management was caught unplanned on their programs. ABS-CBN could have cancel Wowowee’s airtime for that day or maybe they could have talk to Willie on how will they handle it. A piece of advice to Willie, maybe he could be calm to handle things that annoy him.

President Cory loves peace and unity among Filipinos. Willie was able to talk to the Aquino’s children. The management of ABS-CBN, the MTRCB and Willie could also sit down and settle the matter. President Cory will be happy to see us settling things with more maturity, understanding and calmness.

Peace and love to everyone. love struck

Cory's necrological rites LIVE video streaming

At about 4:00pm today (Tuesday, Philippine time), the necrological rites for the former President Corazon “Cory” Cojuangco Aquino will begin. Families, relatives, friends, politicians and more flanked the Manila Cathedral to take part on the said rites for the well-loved former president of the Philippines.

The website of Cory is sharing a live video streaming of the necrological rites and the happenings at the cathedral. For announcements, schedules or for your prayers and condolences do drop by at

Ninoy's poem for Cory (I Have Fallen In Love With The Same Woman Three Times)

Pure, unconditional and eternal. Those are some of the words to describe the kind of love Ninoy and Cory had for each other here and in heaven. As I watched all the news coverages and interviews on TV I can’t help but cried, really cried so hard. All the hardships and pains, all the battles fought, they stood for each other and the love even flourished, deepened and grew stronger.

Cory’s life as a mother and as a wife came not like a bed of roses. It is tough to be a wife to someone like Ninoy who fought not only for his family but for all his countrymen. He is a man of honor and integrity that even life he is willing to offer for his country. As a mother to her kids, Cory needed to be stronger and braver. But our beloved Cory did well triumphantly.

An expression of his great love to Cory, Ninoy made a poem entitled “I Have Fallen In Love (With The Same Woman Three Times)” on October 11, 1973 while still at Fort Bonifacio for their 19th wedding anniversary. It is a poem full of words of love and gratitude from a man for his beloved wife. Thanks Mary Joy of Cebu for sharing this video.

For me Cory is not only a former president, a mother and a wife. She is definitely not only an icon of our country’s democracy but also a true and genuine Filipino who had so much love for the country. Her words, prayers and examples may remain in the hearts of every Filipino and that someday Cory will smile on us from heaven because we are able to make her prayers come true.
