The Thanksgiving Dinner

You Are Fanciful

There's no saying what you'll do next.

but there is always a method to your madness.

However, you always have a grand plan in mind.

Family Television Night: Jeopardy

Contribution by German Flowers

After moving to America I have found one of the greatest shows on earth is Jeopardy. Hosted by Alex Trebeck, this show has been in the American conscious for years but being from India it was new to me. It's an amazing trivia show that always makes people use their brains to figure out the answers to questions on a variety of subjects. My family always watches Jeopardy on our satellite TV Indian channels during the weekends.

Jeopardy features questions on some of the most fascinating subjects. It is a great family show to watch, because typically every person will know the answers to a particular set of questions. It is hilarious to see some of my kids know that answers to pop culture questions, while my husband and I excel at the questions surrounding American history. For example, one time my kids knew the entire lyrics to pop culture songs by artists like P. Diddy and Rihanna, while my husband and I were naming the laws passed in America during the year 2000. We were cracking up to see how all of us ended up with the same score, even though our areas of knowledge were very obviously different!

It is so much fun to plan one night of the week to come together as a family and watch Jeopardy. There is nothing much sweeter in life than watching an educational program together that is actually entertaining and thrilling to watch and participate in!

It's Game Time!

I haven't posted anything lately and I got tied up at work. Everything is pretty hectic at work and I haven't blogging for a while. This time, I am going to share some photos on what we did during the Baby Shower party. The venue was held at Jamestown Campground. We had a lot of fun, lots of food to eat and fun games that we enjoyed so much.

The photo above was one of the games we played. It is called Find the Safety Pins. The materials needed are large bowl, long grain rice, safety pins (small or medium) and blindfold. What I did was to fill the bowl with rice and put about 50 safety pins. Each participant from the baby shower was blindfolded for 1 minute and let the participant feel around in the bowl to see how many safety pins they can get. You would not believe how hard it is to tell the difference of the safety pin and the rice.

The photo above was a fun game. This baby shower game gets everyone laughing! The materials are baby bottles with Milk or any alternate drink. We used sprite and coke. Each participant took a bottle filled with a liquid and suck the bottle as a baby would. The woman who drinks the most in an allotted time wins the baby shower gift. The mistake we did for this game was, we used pop as the alternate drink. The participants complained that it wasn't a good idea. So next time, we will use milk or juice. We all had fun!

Make it Safe!

We can do lot of things over the internet. We can watch videos, download music, and search the web pages, social networking and even play games. Indeed, the internet has evolved throughout the years. It has serves us many things since it all started. For me, life without internet will be boring. For some people who cannot let the day passed without getting on the internet is somewhat addicted to everything over the internet. Hackers and viruses are everywhere too! That's why; I make sure that I have installed my Antivirus and Antispam to defend my computer to any worms wanting to destroy my computer.

It will cost us a fortune if we don't know how to take care of our computers. We have saved important documents, wonderful photos that will last for years and we don't want anything bad will happen and crashed all the files we have saved. We should know that Network Security Software is a helpful tool to protect the network. It provides security on the latest findings on global internet threats and attacks. We should always find a solution to a problem. Don't let anything bad happen to your own computer and regret it. Take care of your things.

Mowing Grass

The weather today is gloomy. Been watching the weather news and it is not the usual weather report I have been wanting to hear. The temperature today is 49 degrees. I want sunshine! But who am I to complain? I should be thankful for this kind of weather because it is not that too hot nor too cold. The wind is blowing and gives me a chilly feeling.

Anyways, I just want to share the photo I took this morning. My hubby was getting ready to mow the grass. Yay! As you can see, he's wearing a different kind of clothing to protect him from the cold weather. It's just cold out there!

Meet Our New Puppy

I am so happy to know that my sister back home got a new white puppy. She named the cute puppy Yam-Yam. As long as I can remember, we got three (3) big dogs back home and I named them Japan, Diyes, and Batik. They are all sweet and playful. As long as I can remember, they all gathered in one spot while waiting for us to arrived. They all come to us and meet us in the middle of the road. Oh how I miss them so much. Unfortunately, two (2) of them passed away. It is so sad to know when your pets are gone after you took care of them for a long time.

Recently, my sister got a new pup and posted a photo in her Facebook. It's a spotted puppy! She is so adorable and they all love her. She feeds the puppy some hotdogs, rice with milk and beef steak. I know, I know, she's just a mutt but when you have given your love to an adorable pup, how can you feed her with scraps, right? I cannot wait to meet Yam-Yam in person. I know for sure that I am going to fell in-love with her. See you soon, Yam-Yam!

Holy Week


Every year, I am looking forward on the celebration of the Holy Week. I miss the Catholic way of celebrating Holy Week back home. Although they practice it here in America, I still like the way they do it there. It was a big part of my life growing up.
"Holy Week is the week which precedes the great festival of the Resurrection on Easter Sunday, and which consequently is used to commemorate the Passion of Christ, and the event which immediately led up to it. In Latin is it called hebdomada major, or, less commonly, hebdomada sancta, styling it he hagia kai megale ebdomas. Similarly, in most modern languages (except for the German word Charwoche, which seems to mean "the week of lamentation") the interval between Palm Sunday and Easter Day is known par excellence as Holy Week."
Everyday, I get updates from my sister and she's telling me on what activities they are doing to celebrate the Holy Week. Oh, how I miss home! I just can't wait anymore. I will be seeing them very soon.

What Does Your Bedtime Say About You?

Your Normal Bedtime Says You're Balanced




You are a flexible, adaptable person who seeks balance in your life.

While you would love to stay up as late as you want,
you're too responsible to do so.


You work hard but also let yourself relax.

You do your best, but you don't hold yourself to impossible standards.
You've got to have some fun too!

Lindsay Lohan Lawsuit

I was watching the Fox News this morning when I heard that actress Lindsay Lohan is suing financial company E-Trade for $100 million. Remember the E-Trade ad (video below), which debuted during this year's Super Bowl in February, a baby boy apologizes to his girlfriend for not calling her the night before. Lindsay Lohan filed the lawsuit Monday, which claims the ad violated the star's rights under New York state civil-rights law.

You can read more about the news here.

Music Download!

When I got the Apple iPod touch last Valentine's Day, I was thinking where can I download free songs. I have been asking my friends who got an iPod touch where they get their songs. I am not musically inclined but I love to sing at the shower room. Just recently, my friend got a new laptop and she wants to download songs from her laptop. She asked for a help. I helped her how to do it on her laptop. I searched on MP3 Search Engine and from there, it gave us so many things to consider. We were so happy that it wasn't hard to do it. All we have to do is follow the process and now, we are enjoying the songs we downloaded. Though, I still have to ask my sister what are the hit songs playing today. I need to catch up on the days I missed listening to the music industry.

Wedding Budget

As I told to my previous post, my friends are getting married by the end of this year. They are already talking about wedding gowns, the entourage, and the church, the venue for the reception, the photographer and the flowers. Getting married is really a stressful job. I wonder if my girl friend is getting all the help she needs organizing their wedding because they are both working. Her fiancé is a nurse and she's a banker.

Organizing a decent wedding will need a lot of planning and careful decision making. It will all start on your budget. They both told me that they are saving enough money for the wedding. There are some ways to cut your wedding budget without sacrificing other things. There are some tips and tricks that can help you cut costs and keep the wedding of your dreams within reach. It will all start in you. I can't wait for the moment to witness my friends' wedding day. I am already thinking what to wear!

The 44th Super Bowl

Yesterday, we went to our friend's place in Chandler to see the Super Bowl game - Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints. Saints defeated Colts by 14 points. Our friends prepared a lot of food. We brought pizza and chicken hot wings from Papa John's and they prepared brownies, vegetable, chips and dips, fruit salad and chili beans.

the food!

Colts and Saints

We were full even before the game started. We are all rooting for the Saints to win. While watching the game, the Colts got their first three points and touchdowns. But we did not lose hope until luck for the Saints came and their touchdowns keep on coming on and on. The Saints won the 44th Super Bowl and Drew Brees got the MVP award!

Analyn and Me

My friend and I are playing with our make ups and practicing further how to apply make-up and blend the colors. We both had fun. It was a wonderful night.

Enjoying East Texas!

My husband and I enjoyed are winter travels. Two weeks ago, we were in Hawaii and we just love the tropical weather. We were out most of the time enjoying our time in the park and driving around the Big Island. I guess, spending three months in Hawaii is enough for us to see the beauty of the islands. We were spoiled by the tropical weather and the fresh produce everyday! The people are so nice and very friendly.



Now, we are back in the mainland and enjoying our travels down south. We love the weather here in Texas! It's been one week and five days since we got here and it feels like we already know where to go around. I guess, I owe it to my husband who is the driver and of course to myself who is the navigator! Who could ever imagine that we are back in the state of Texas for the second time?

Girls Talk: First Date

Girls Talk

My first date was taken at Sunflower fast food restaurant, a local fast food in my hometown. It was just a casual date actually, we were just talking about things that we like and we don't like. I was working at Greenwich as a service crew. The first date wasn't that long because we both have to go back to work. We were both working in Greenwich! I was in college at that time and he was too. I can say, that my first date wasn't that memorable as we didn't do that much.

Travel-Bug in Me!

We left our place in Hilo, Hawaii around 6:10 PM. Our newly found friend, Ellen came by and offered help to take us at the airport. Our flight going to Honolulu, Hawaii was around 8:21 PM. Luckily, there were no delays and we were on board on time at Hawaiian Airlines. We landed at Honolulu International Airport around 9:10 PM. While waiting for our flight going to Seattle, I checked my Facebook to see if there's something new about my friends. I can't check my Barn Buddy farm as my BlackBerry Tour doesn't support the Facebook games. Wishing I have an iPhone! Luckily, I have my Nintendo DSi to entertain me.

We boarded around 12:00 AM - our flight going to Seattle. We landed at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport around 6:35 AM (Pacific Time). My husband grabbed coffee and a chocolate donut and I got Vanilla Cinnamon Latte and cream cheese Danish at Seattle's Best Coffee. Our flight to Minneapolis will be around 12:30 PM and I am getting tired waiting over. I am irritated, I am tired and I am sleepy! This is the longest layover (about (6 hours) I have ever had. Can't wait for my next trip down South! So excited!
