Gift Giving And Shopping

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Bidazzled. All opinions are 100% mine.

Tomorrow night will be our family gift giving and I'm almost done shopping for my gifts for all my family. I can't count how many times we've been in and out of different malls and shops looking for specific Christmas gifts for my family: my mom, sister's family, cousins, nieces and nephews included. I just love to go shopping. Yes, it's a bit tiring to shop but nothing beats the excitement of getting to buy something good for a very cheap price.

There's is one thing that I love to try too and that is online shopping. And just today I browsed through a site on online auction. I'm actually very new to this stuff but as I went through their site, I found it to be very interesting. I found out that in this site, auction winners can actually save up to 80% off their retail price. Why? Because starting price for each merchandise can be as low as 0.00% and the price increases only a few cents each time bids are placed. And if you end up to be the last bidder for that merchandise then you win. So, if you bid for an iphone for 10.00$ and you happen to be the last bidder then you get the iphone. Isn't that cool?

Anyways, if you're interested you can visit the Bidazzled site and find out more of their promotions and offers.

The Guitar and 2 Bicycles

Posted by Laureen at Monday, December 21, 2009 1 comments
From the left is Ninong Tonypet,her wife ate boggie,that's Z holding his new guitar and Lil sis Zane.

Z boy had a piggy bank.He was saving up to buy himself a bicycle.When the piggy bank became full and it was time to open it, the amount only totaled P1,200 but a new bicycle would cost up to P2,000 plus.

So, I suggested to buy a small guitar for him instead since he was also interested to learn how to play the guitar. And he agreed. I'm glad that he was also happy with my suggestion.

Thus ,we asked his Ninong Tonypet to buy the small guitar for Z because he is one person who knows how to choose the best guitar since he is also the best guitar player in CDO. LOL! Z boy actually wants to be play like his Ninong Tonypet and that's why right now he is also taking guitar lessons from him. Hopefully he will also be the next best guitar player in the world. LOL! This is to glorify God of course.

I'm just so glad that as early as 5 y.o Z boy has already started to have that interest in learning how to play the guitar and I know that eventually this talent will be used to serve God.

Anyways, what was more amazing was that God also met my boy's desire to have a bike. We saw a two 2nd hand bicycles for only P900! Thus, my HUbby bought for him. Though they were only secondhand bikes but still in good condition and still looks nice. So, that's the story behind my boy's guitar and 2 bicycle that started from his piggy bank savings. :)

Hello! It's quite a long time that I haven't join FPF for I was quite busy lately. I really miss joining this fun meme. Finally, here is my entry for this week .

WFW#20 - The Surrendered Wife

Posted by Laureen at Tuesday, December 15, 2009 9 comments

EPHESIANS 5:22 " Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord . . . Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her."

Paul gave two powerful dictum's about marriage: a husband is to love his wife as Christ loved the church and a wife is to submit to her husband's leadership while both of them submit (same word) to each other in love, being sensitive to the needs and circumstances of the other.

Posted by Laureen at Sunday, November 29, 2009 8 comments

I have tried making chocolate truffle for the first time during Z's birthday. I saw how to make this recipe from my son's Hi 5 video before. I thought of including this in my son's birthday menu for it is easy to make and it also looks yummy.

While I was making the chocolate truffle my nephew, Renzee was around to help me. He enjoyed shaping the truffles and at the same time putting some into his mouth.Lol! He liked it so much that 2 days after that he requested his Ate to make for their snacks.

I would like to share this truffle recipe for you to try to make along with your kids.We are also planning to teach this to our preschoolers at Little evangel Christian School.

2 pks ground chocolate graham biscuits or ace biscuits

1 big can condensed milk

1 pk marshmallow at least 30-35 pcs

1 pk desecated coconut

Very easy to make in just 3 steps:

1.Just mix the ground chocolate graham biscuites and condensed milk.

2.Form it into balls with one marshmallow at the center.

3.Then roll it in the dessicated coconut then

Have fun making and eating....

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Incendia Health. All opinions are 100% mine.

I've heard that there is one great iLASIK Video Contest that has 5,000$ for grabs. I'm actually not fond of joining contests. I guess it's because I've never won any contests in my whole life. But my sister is now fond of joining contest. She only started to join contests after winning a trip to Thailand. Maybe if I have more time and more motivation, I would try to join contests.

About the video contest with 5,000$ as the grand prize, it's actually a contest by Abbott Medical Optics Inc. They launched the “You Gotta See This” Video Contest, inviting entrants to make a video showing the impact of improved vision, for a chance to win cash and prizes.

What are the prizes?

The Prizes
$5,000 Grand Prize

First Prize (one in each video category):
HDTV package — a $2,500 value

Second Prize (one in each video category):
The Flip UltraHD™ camcorder — a $199.99 value

What you have to do?

Just submit a video in any of the following categories:

• “My contacts are getting in the way of my good time”
• “My favorite sport or activity would be so much cooler with better vision”
• “You should see life after the iLASIK® Procedure”

Then, tell your friends to vote for the video you submitted.

Then you get the chance to win any of the above prizes. Cool!

Birthday Treat at School

Posted by Laureen at Saturday, November 21, 2009 1 comments
My son, Z also celebrated his birthday in school. He didn't have a birthday party but we just prepared snacks, loot bags and give aways on that day. Our school doesn't allow birthday parties during classes anymore.

Before we allowed parties at School but there are other parents who could not afford to have such. So, it would be unfair and a sad experience for those children since they cannot avoid comparing themselves with others. There were even instances that the teachers were the ones who spent for children who couldn't afford to have parties. There were also times that the school didn't have time for classes anymore for there were weeks that the pupils celebrated their birthdays on successive days. So that's the reason we don't allow parties anymore, we just snacks and goodies during break time.

Anyways, Z boy was so happy on that day that he exclaimed, "Mom May,Daddy,This is the best birthday ever!!!..." When we asked why, he said, "Because I had 2 celebrations"

But Wait....the celebration actually did not end in the school. Z boy's Granny also gave a treat to Z boy's teachers who also happens to be my 2nd degree cousins.Lol!

wfw #18 - Altars

Posted by Laureen at Tuesday, November 17, 2009 10 comments

Genesis 26:25 "Isaac built an altar there and called on the name of the Lord. There he pitched his tent, and there his servants dug a well."

An altar is where you meet God. It can be a rock you kneel beside in the woods, in a quiet spot in your home or beside your desk at the office. The where is not important. Doing it is the vital thing. You can make an altar anywhere as you lay your life open to Him and meet Him.

5th Birthday

Posted by Laureen at Saturday, November 14, 2009 1 comments
Last October 25t, my son, Z boy celebrated his 5th birthday. Since that day was Sunday we held the celebration at Church during Sunday school for the children. We had an outdoor celebration since we don't have a room for our Children's Sunday School yet. We are still praying for a room for the children since our church was just built this year out of faith.

The theme of Z's birthday was Bugs Bunny. So we tried to prepare everything according to the Bugs Bunny theme.

The kids really enjoyed everything about the party: the food, games, loot bags they received, the "pabitin" and the prizes.

I truly thank God for giving us our son Z or Zif Azriel . His name Zif is a constant reminder to us of God's splendor and Azriel for God is absolutely our aid.

The kids are so excited to get prizes from the "Pabitin"

Z boy was so happy to receive gifts.

The food that I prepared.

Games hosted by Teacher Jun

More games..

WFW # 17 -Nation

Posted by Laureen at Tuesday, November 10, 2009 10 comments
This picture was taken during the United Nations Celebration of Little Evangel Christian School where Zboy, my son is schooling.
Matthew 28:18-20 "Jesus came and told his disciples" I have been given complete authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
We are to go....whether it is next door or to another country--and make disciples. It is not an option but a command to all who call Jesus "Lord". We are not all evangelists in the formal sense, but we have all received gifts that we can use to help fulfill the great commission. As we obey, we have confidence in knowledge that Jesus is always with us.

United Nation Celebration

Posted by Laureen at Monday, November 09, 2009 3 comments
Oct 24,2009 was the United Nation celebration of our school. The United Nations Celebration is one of the most awaited event of the year for the parents because they will be able to dress up their kids and let them represent the different countries of the world.

My son, Z boy represented the Country of Norway. It was quite amusing how I came up with his Norwegian costume, other parents spent much for their kids costume but for me I thank God for the provision. I just used some of Z boys existing clothes and borrowed his jacket, pants and hat. So, I ended up only spending P60 for his socks. LOL!

Thanks to Kuya Daniels coat( son of my best friend),Ate Rienyel's pants and Kuya Renzee's hat(Z's cousins)

I'm so proud of Z.He really did well during his presentation.

That's me doing the welcome address. Yes,the school staff also wore costumes.Lol!

Here is Z wearing his cowboy costume. The students also danced the different dances for the countries but this picture was taken after the dance. Sorry I was not able to take picture for I was busy helping the other kids prepare for their presentation while my husband was taking the video. They also sung the "Jesus love the little children" in Thai,Malay Tamil Indian and English version.Thanks to Jesu, my brother in law who took time to translate the song.We also took the chance to pray for the Nations.

It was indeed a glorious celebration.God bless all nations of the world.
