Home Sweet Home

I would like to share how my home now looks. After months of renovations, we have settled in nicely. Although there are still things to do like we still do not have built-in cabinets and the bookshelves are still not here. I can safely say it's a work in progress.

Owning our Home

We have been living here in our new house for two months now. It is a great milestone for us as we just celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. A very precious gift from my husband. It took tremendous amount of blood, sweat and tears before we were able to move in but it's all worth it!

The feeling of living in a house that is truly your own is overwhelming. The very first day I woke up in our home I felt very peaceful, that’s the only way I can describe it. Regardless of how chaotic the house is, we ended sleeping in the same room with boxes all around us, crowding the only electric fan, there was peace.

Here are the various picture of the house, it is still under renovation to accommodate all our needs but hey its home.

Yahoo! Meme is here!

I’ve been microblogging for a year now and it has become an essential part of my daily routine, greeting from good morning to your friends to telling them what you eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner, sharing your immediate moods and feelings.

I find my microblogging community as my support system, we share almost all aspect of our lives on a day to day basis that if you feel down they cheer you up and even help you decide on things if you let them.

This is why when I attended the Blog4Reviews Christmas party last December for their bloggers and partners and Jonas de los Reyes of Yahoo! Philippines introduced us to Yahoo! Meme, I became interested.

Yahoo! Meme is not just any other Microblogging site that it purely text or you are limited to the 140 characters line to express your feelings. With Yahoo! Meme you can share and express yourself thru different media, text, photo, video and audio. Meme also offers easy way of spreading or sharing whatever you find interesting by their one-click repost feature.

Since I signed up in Yahoo! Meme, I’ve meet new people, gone to places I have never been and forged new friendships. Through Yahoo! Meme my world expanded regardless of time and place, I learned new things and saw great places that people around the world share through memes.

My New Motto - Take Action!

Happy New Year Everybody!

A New Year means a new start, a way for improve ourselves, make plans and achieve goals. I always do an assessment of my plans at the start of the year. Assessing if I have achieved my goals and strategize on the things I would like to do. Check if my 5-year plan is still on track. I would not be sharing my plans with you instead I will be sharing my new motto.

Take Action! Seize the Moment.

I have been thinking of these phrases for quite sometime now, people who know me know I am a great planner. But what they don’t know is that I get frustrated if my plans don’t push through.

Being a Mom, a wife, a career woman and an entrepreneur can take its toll on a person. As an individual I do have goals for myself but sometimes those are set aside or postponed for my priority is my family and I accept that. But I am getting tired of postponing some of them.

So this New Year I’ll start using the phrase “Take Action!” when I feel the circumstances is just right to take the risk and do whatever I intend to do like REALLY put up my own physical store/coffee shop and take a chance in hiring someone as a full time assistant for my business. Before I would wait for the right timing and wait for the right person to come into my life. Well I realize that if I will not Take Action I might be waiting for a very long time.

Taking Action will also be implemented in my personal life where dreams are still dreams waiting for schedules to clear up so we can travel, well I won’t wait anymore and clear the schedules myself if I have to.

2010 is shaping up to be a great year for me. I’m so excited!
