i want # 1

Crocs in Alice.
Drool with me.

3 X Thursday

1. What motivates you? Why?
My family. Seeing my daughter strive to excel in her preschool. Watching her play with kids her age. My daugher going home with both her hands filled with "good job" stamps. That's what motivates me to work hard and at the same time, be a better person to the world.

2. What happens when you can't be motivated to do something you need to do? How do you get the motivation back?
I step back, reassess my goals in life then move on. Just by looking at my family and the dreams we build together brings back my motivation.

3. Are there any changes in the state of your world that need some motivation to do? What they are is optional, but how will you motivate yourself to do it?
Each day, my husband and I need to reassure each other that it's going to be a better day for us, for our daughter and this will be a better place to live in because we are striving hard. I guess, it all goes back to your support system. If you know that people support you, there's no reason for you to feel demotivated.

Check out my current fave thing... collecting havis!!!

heart of gold

A cousin who grew up in the US has phoned me a few weeks ago sharing her new business venture. She tried teh aesthetics business by opening a salon, spa and wellness boutique as soon as she got off college. And now that the business is thriving, she dabbled into another field. She is now into wholesale fashion jewelry business. So far, so good she said. Aside from the fact that the business is blossoming, what makes it more special is the purpose of this business. Some of the items on sale are there to help some organizations. The proceeds of a bracelet, say for example, will go to a certain organization. Isn't that amazing?

My cousin has already saved enough for herself. She said that it's time to reach out to the less fortunate ones. Boy, I am proud!

pregnant again?

If these were in my wardrobe, then I want to be pregnant again... Such pretty eyecandies!!!

monday's a bitch!

1. When was the last time you were sick?
I was sick just last week. The doctor said it was due to lack of sleep, stress at work and very poor diet. As you lnow, I have been dissatisfied with my body weight that I am practicing the wrong diet for the wrong reasons. Although I have seriously contemplated on it, I am glad that I have not jumped into the pool of people who are taking appetite suppressants to lose weight. Not that it's a bad idea because some of them like this one which I have discovered is harmless and can be really helpful in losing weight.

2. Do you make an effort to try to avoid germs in places like public washrooms?
Yes. I keep a small bottle of alcohol in my bag and squirt on my hands, Lizzie's and Arthuz when we're out malling and we need to go to the loo.

3. What's the longest time you've been away from work/school due to illness?
I am not that sickly and if I am, I just take a day or two off.

4. What's your favourite comfort food for when you're not feeling well?
Soup and green mangoes (or any sour fruit!)

5. Are there any foods that you can't eat anymore, due to past experience with food poisoning?
I eat all sorts of food so this question does not suit me. Hehehe!

manic monday

How long does it take you to get out of bed in the morning?
I snooze my alarm twice then I drag myself out of the comforters otherwise I'll be late most of the time!

Do you usually sleep on one side of the bed or another?
I always sleep at the right side of the bed. Have been doing so eversince my hubby and I shared a bed, 5 years ago...

Something you wish to accomplish before the end of the year:
Lose more pounds, gain more wisdom , friends and money...

unparalleled service

My grandmother has a carehome in California that is home to around 20 oldies. My mom and dad administers the entire facility and it is also their responsibility to make sure that the adult diaper is in abundance. Since mo is really adventurous when it comes to picking nice things for the old folks, she makes sure that she gets the best and the most comfortable ones that she can think of. She discovered that at Disposable Medical Express, she gets a wide selection of diapers at the best price coupled with unparalleled service. The company's purpose is simple and that convinced my mom to get supplies from them. I am glad that she discovered Disposable Medical Express. It just made her life so much easier!

swinging in the rain

Christmas is just around the corner. I have started with my list a few nights ago while my daughter was busy tracing the letters from her workbook. She has been working really hard in school that she extends her review time at home for another half an hour. I swear, I was never like that when I was her age, nor her dad. Her passion for learning is something she got from herself heee! That's the main reason why her dad and I agreed to give her the best gift this Christmas. An incentive of some sort for being the great girl that she is to us. We have been checking out some really nice wooden swing sets online. We saw one that would prettily sit in our garden. This early, I can imagine how she is going to play with the set on days she is not in school. We just need to check out how their shipping and handling is then we're set to place the order.

Stay tuned!
