My First Task

After my blog (A Place of Reflection) has been approved from PayPerPost, I already got my first ever task. I submitted my post and waiting for the approval. Luckily, I got the Google page rank (1) which will give me more opportunities (I hope) to write and blog about a certain product. I am keeping my fingers crossed for more opportunities and more earnings I could get from blogging.

For now, let me enjoy the snowfall last night. Maybe me and hubby will play snowballs attack tomorrow. I bet it would be fun playing not minding how cold it was outside while we are having fun. I can't wait for our upcoming winter activities such as snow tubing, ice fishing and to make my first ever big Frosty the snowman!

Seeing is Believing!

Are you tired of paying high price with your old-fashion prescription eyeglasses? What about if I say you can buy trendy, stylish and fashionable pair of glasses for just $15? Will you believe me? My husband has been wearing prescription glasses for 12 years. He was 47 years old when he started wearing prescription eyeglasses. It was a very bad feeling for him when one day he woke up reading newspaper and couldn't read the words. It was a very strange feeling for him. He can't even read what's on the menu. He said it was pretty scary. He went to the eye doctor for a careful eye examination, and then bought his first pair of prescription eyeglasses. It was the time when he needed those pair of glasses so he can see clearly.

It cost him a fortune just to buy his first pair of eyeglasses. Imagine how many other things can you buy with that price of traditional and old-fashion prescription eyeglasses? As I was searching the internet, I found nice eyeglasses from They offer high quality prescription eyeglasses for an affordable price of $15. How cool can that be? You can save big bucks!

What a Surprise!

For few days now, I have been struggling cleaning and fixing our house. It was a tough job as a housewife. I don't mind packing all our stuff from our old house and bring them all here in our new place. What keeps me from being a lazy butt is the unpacking session. Our new house was like a maze where you have to think which way you are going. I am done cleaning the 2 full bathrooms and this time, I am almost done cleaning, keeping things organized and making it a home.

I am having so much fun cleaning our new place. Earlier today, while resting from cleaning the kitchen, I got an e-mail from the website - Triple P telling me that my other blog, A Place of Reflection was approved. I was really surprised! I have been waiting for my second blog to be approved for days now and finally, I got the good news. What's more interesting was my newly approved blog got a Google page rank (1). I have been struggling to get a Google rank and now here it is. I never thought I would get one. Thank you God for everything!

Are You a Pilgrim or an Indian?

You Are a Pilgrim

Like the pilgrims, you've felt persecuted for your beliefs from time to time.

You have a strong sense of right and wrong.
Your morality sometimes makes you feel out of step with the modern world.

You may not go as far as moving across the world, but you still identify with the pilgrims.

Well, except for the whole stealing land and killing Indians thing.

Here Comes the Star!

Create Your OwnMake a Routan Baby

When my husband and I got married, I have been attacked with so many questions on when are we going to have a baby. I try to avoid to answer the question as much as possible but I just couldn't. There would always be a safe answer from me. Some of my friends or newly acquainted people are still asking but I always say I am not ready to have a baby with today's economy. I think I am not ready emotionally, physically and mentally. You see, I myself is a kid at heart. My husband pampers me like a baby and take cares of me like a baby. So when we got married I am more than a wife to him.

Earlier today, when Rowena posted her virtual baby boy, I got excited to make my own and see what would be the product of an Asian and a Caucasian couple. Then, while I was browsing some of my favorite blogs today, I saw Jacy's blog Meet Our Baby which made me smile. Now that I have my own virtual baby boy, I showed it to my husband and said, "What a cute little monster!" After all this thing, I still don't think I am ready or even have the chance to prepare for a real baby for me.

Sweet Treats!

The husband and I decided to treat ourselves with pies, cakes and rolls. There's a country store near our place which is just a 5 minutes drive from our house. We were actually shopping for some goodies that we are going to send in the Philippines as a Christmas gift for them.

We grabbed cheesecake, German chocolate cake and cinnamon rolls. The husband grabbed a pumpkin roll for himself and it tastes so good. I thought pumpkin cake rolls is bad but it wasn't bad at all. I guess it really depends how you make something out of pumpkin. They are all delicious and satisfied with some good treats.

Best Age To Marry

What's you ideal age for marriage? I have been reading the news from the Yahoo today and came across this article Sooner versus Later: Is there an ideal for first marriage?. I think back from the time I got married, it was just days before I will turned 25 years old (21 days after my marriage). I was 24 years old then when I say "I do" to my husband now. We got married at Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. There were no major preparations just like all the weddings that I have witnessed myself back home.

It took us 1 year, 3 months and 22 days dating, exchanging letters, phone calls and 3 times visiting me in the Philippines. The time and effort was so much as we get to know each others differences before tying the knot and be responsible as a husband and wife. Sure we may not be the perfect couple in the universe but we will do our best to keep our marriage stronger, peaceful and full of happiness. What about you? What's your ideal age to marry?

How Independent Are You?

Your Independence Level: Medium

In some aspects of your life, you can be very self reliant.

Making your own informed choices feels great.

But you aren't as independent as you could be.

When things get stressful, you sometimes run away from the hard decisions you need to make.

Easy Lemon Pasta with Chicken

I am a pasta lover! My husband is not. My cooking specialty are more on pasta. I can make any spaghetti a knocked-out. My friends always tell me that I am a good cook and I would like to expand more of my knowledge in cooking pasta not just in spaghetti and macaroni salad. Here's one pasta recipe which I got from my friend's site Hayzell's Recipe. It is easy to prepare and I am sure you will love it.

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cooking Level: Easy
Cook time: 25 mins

1 pound dried penne
2 chicken cutlets, cut into fingers
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
2 lemons, juiced
1/2 cup grated Parmesan

Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, until al dente. Drain well.

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat a large grill pan over medium high and add chicken. Grill until golden and completely cooked. Remove to a plate and slice.

Add the garlic and red pepper flakes to a saute pan with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and saute until fragrant. Add the cooked pasta and turn heat off. Mix all together.

Remove pasta to a large bowl. Add chicken to the warm pasta and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle in chopped parsley. Add the juice of 2 lemons and mix. Before serving top with Parmesan.

Why Do We Vote on a Tuesday in November?

It's Election Day and I know that all the people all over the United States are waiting for the final result who will be the next President of the United States of America. It has been a long battle for the people who's on the race. I am sure they are nervous, anxious and happy, or maybe some have mixed emotions for today's Election. You've studied the issues and cast your ballot. Now all that's left to do is bide your time until the results start coming in for John McCain and Barack Obama. To help you in that effort, we introduce a list of election fun facts for your brain-candy pleasure.

So, why do we vote on Tuesday? The short answer: We used to be a nation of farmers. The long answer: Congress chose November because the harvest was over and the weather wouldn't be bad enough to prevent people from traveling.

As for Tuesday, people used to have to travel overnight to their polling location. (In 1845, horse was the preferred method of transport.) In an effort to avoid religious days of rest, Congress chose Tuesday, leaving Monday and Wednesday as travel days. Tuesday was voting (and horse-resting) day.
