Okay, Let's Do This...

Hello my dear readers (if there are any)!  I know I have been in a very very long hiatus.  Busy?  Maybe.  But, it is more of, not inspired.  Or maybe not.  Actually, I got a number of things in my head that I wanted to get out of my system by blogging.  However, there are those that I believe should be kept inside; while there are those that come out of the blue where my blog is not accessible.

Anyhow, I am trying to bring back my Stradcom days where I get to blog every day.  But for now, I will try to write, say monthly, or bi-weekly.  Then eventually blog daily, if I can keep my passion alive.

So, what's up with me now?  My hands are full - of responsibilities.  My hubby and I open up a store last January 28 of this year - Minnie Crafts.  We are still in the process of coping up.  Where expenses vs sales is at the ration 75-25 (roughly).  But I am enjoying it - specially on tshirt printing.  Yes, we are into digital tshirt printing.  And I am really glad on how most of the clients appreciate our craft.  Please do visit our Facebook Fanpage to check out our products -- Shirt by Marquee.

NBA Finals 2013.  Being a fan of basketball, of course I am into NBA Finals.  And I am cheering to whoever the Miami Heat is up against, LOL!  No, I am not hater, I am just NOT a fan of the Heat.  My heart stays with the Celtics.  But I'd love to see Tim Duncan and Tony Parker win another championship against Lebron James.  My fearless forecast of Spurs in 5 can no longer be a reality.  So most likely, my hubby's forecast will - Spurs in 6.

Spurs vs Heat

Hmmm, I guess I have to voice this out -- I am really against on the way Vice Ganda is bringing in humor by bullying.  I can't help but compare him with Jose and Wally (plus Paolo) of Eat Bulaga who can make me laugh my heart out without having to insult someone's appearance.  No wonder I have never been a fan of Vice Ganda.  I can't even remember a time I got to laugh at his jokes (or bullying).  Intelligence is one thing; knowing how to respect others is more important.  Want a healthy debate?  Comment on and I will answer.

It's already the start of rainy season!!! I can't believe my feet haven't touched any beach yet.  *sad*

Last June 12 (Independence Day), we went to Sonya's Garden.  But I got a little bit disappointed.  Probably I have to story-tell my experience on another post.  Let's have it saved so I can get on moving.  For now, I'm okay with everything that I had posed here.

So, how are you guys?  Please help me awoken the sleeping blogger in me.  Okay, let's do this...

Trying to Write Again

My blog needs a little bit of attention... So here I am trying to write again.  But I simply cannot get the inspiration to get moving.

I remember my blossoming days as a blogger wherein I just cannot wait to write and share my experience (no matter how shallow that might be).  But that was history.  Unfortunately, words still can't come out from my mind.  Nothing to share at the moment... just trying to write again.

Anyway, please do visit my newly created page, MinnieScents.  It is a budding fragrance business of my hubby and I, which I hope would be a hit.  For inquiries, just shoot me an email at mmgalvezph[at]yahoo[dot]com.

Do You Know a Store That Has Furniture Retail Software?

After almost eight months of living in our new home, my hubby and I haven’t purchased any furniture for our living area yet.  We took care of the more important things first (aside from the fact that we lack the financial capacity, hee hee) before looking into buying that stuff.

But since I will be having an incentive for referring a friend in our company, I thought of using that to buy furniture where we can place our shoes and slippers, at the same time, a place to sit on.  As much as possible, I wanted to save space.  On Saturday, we will drop by a furniture store nearby.  I do hope they have furniture retail software so that I can easily browse on their products and see if they got what I really need. 

Do you know a store that has that kind of software?  Do let me know as I badly wanted to buy the shoe rack for our humble abode.  TIA.

Keep Clothes Clean and Dry in the Rain

Don’t let the gloomy weather get to you. The rainy season, which is in full swing, often brings a lot of worries along with thunder and storms.  Rain has a way of affecting everything in our lives, including the clothes we wear.

Not letting damp laundry dry completely make garments smell foul and musty. Worse, the moisture in the clothes can be breeding places for bacteria, which can cause allergies and other ailments.

Luckily, Stanhome World, the No. 1 Direct-Selling company in the European Union, is committed to finding simple solutions to save everyday problems like rainy season laundry. Here are some easy tips that will ensure your laundry smells fresh and clean no matter what the weather.

Unity Sand Ceremony

I got a message from my cousin earlier who will be tying the knot on January 2013. She’s busy planning and preparing for her upcoming ‘The Day’. I know the feeling – the excitement and the worries. In the end, I know she’ll be happy simply by knowing that she married the man that he loves. Having the perfect wedding ceremony is, well, an icing on the cake.

She told me that she’d drop by our house to take a look on our wedding pictures. Below is one of my favorites.

A bride is always beautiful on her wedding day :)

I Need Rest

Many envy the work I have right now. Who wouldn't? Whenever required to work on a night shift, I can simply "work from home". Well, even my niece once told me, that when she grow up, she would like to be a Computer Engineer so that she can also work from home. And that really gave me a good laugh...

On the second thought, it is not that great to have such a setup. Last week, when PNoy declared a holiday because of "Bagyong Habagat" (lol), I am forced (okay, not forced, I just love my work that I know when I really need to report for work) to work remotely. So, while everyone is on emergency leave since our house (compound) resembles group of islands, I am working on a night shift.

Early this day, I somewhat feel dizzy. I felt like I needed REST. But as dedicated as I am, I toil the 2 long hours of travel to work. And just when I was about to go home, and start rejoicing for having the REST that I wanted -- I was asked by my
manager to do a night shift. @-@

So, upon arriving home, instead of laying down to sleep, I stay awake and have to toil another shift.

But then again, I am still thankful (to God) that I have this kind of work. Despite the restless week that I have, the comfort of being at home is already a much greater compliment.

And yes, I still Need REST...
