Time with Friends

Waaa..lutong pinoy!!! it was fun! since it was free from school and work last thursday due to angelikka's free day we visited a filipina friend who really like to cook filipino foods. Time went so fast but we had a perfect lunch together with 'tinolang isda' , pancit and shrimps. We just put a little shrimp also on the soap just to put colors and additional taste! wow! it was so good and we went home so full stomach.

Khim made a 'binignit' for our dessert paired with tea or coffe that makes our eating fellowship perfect! Because we were so full, so we took a little walk around their place and chat a little, then before we went home we ate the fruit salad that she almost forgot that she had prepared some for us;) Well, that was fun time together with family and friends!

Thanks Khimma at sa uulitin! Have a wonderful day to all!

Colorful days:)

Me, Jenny and Shy after our class yesterday dropped by in a shopping store which sells almost all kinds of products. Since I have a gift certificate on that store, I asked them to help me find something maybe shoes will be good. So we went directly to the shoes department and found many different kinds and nice shoes, then as Filipinos, we looked directly on sale area..hehe.

Actually, I was looking for a Nike sneakers since mine is already over used. I even about to buy last Saturday when me and my husband went to a shoes store and I found there what I want... just the color (yellow) made me think again and the fact that it was a little expensive. So, when I found that same sneakers there on the sale area and blue/violet color ( still not my color but hello??? half cheaper than the first and the only Nike there and take note..its my size:) aheheh. Not only that.., when you buy two you'll pay only one! (buy one take one) hehe... wasn't it a lucky day? and I can say a colorful day because the color of my two new shoes are blueviolet and green. aheheh!
Have a colorful day everyone!!!

Funny ME

At our wall, this is how it looks;) hahahha.. Everytime there's a new visitors they will always ask if we were 4 siblings. Why they just knew that we were only three, or sometimes they will ask who is the other girl. My mother always give a smile and will just say that the two girl pictures belongs to only one 'Me'.

Well, the first picture looks so many can't recognize that it was me. I was 19yrs. old graduated my Bachelor in Theology. As I said somewhere in my older posts that I went to college so young at 15 and living in the dormitory. And the other one is the present which really looks like me;) It was when I graduated my Bachelor in Elementary Education.

Hmmm...those were the days!

(you might wonder about the arrangement, it was before when they were working the left side of our wall, so they put all the pictures in the right side in the meantime;)..surely no longer the same arrangement this time)

See any difference???

This was me 8years ago! This was taken during our graduation ball in college! Yes, I have make up on, but I like it, I mean so mild and wearable. This was the first time they trimmed my eyebrows and it was so painful the first time:)

I don't wears make up because its itchy after maybe an hour or minutes. But that time I hold into it because it was our victory ball..hehe after 4years of sleepless nights and daily fights against books and pens finally we reach our goal and about to wear that black toga of success on the next day! Hmmm...time goes fast!

This is me now;) A wife, a mother and now living here in this foreign land just to be with my new born lovely family. I return to school after accepting the fact that what we finished from our place is almost nothing here. Maybe just the gained knowledge which forever in us and can be use anytime in many situations in this new venture of my life. A new chapter that must be fight on.

Just wonder if there' any difference with me physically! hahahahah! Ofcourse there is but not so much I think... Whatchathink???

When the Summer is Over

Yesterday was just, shall I say, lucky day or unexpected blessed day! Why??? because everything that happens was not planned but it turns into an unexpected answered prayer;)

My mother- in-law called my husband in the morning and asked if we have schedules that day because we usually have. And yes we suppose had, so my husband said so but why? And his mother said she needs help for her house wagon to take it off and park to a safe place until next season again. In the middle of their conversation my phone also rungs... and it was my friend whom we suppose to go that day informing us that the meeting will be cancelled for some sickness reason.

My mother-in-law was so happy and so thankful because we went to her instead and helped. It was fun though it was a little work specially for my husband and m-in-l. Fixing those things and keeping it and cleaning everything before it will be kept. I helped a little, just to wash and wiped the tent on the areas that were dirty;) Angelikka also helped by picking up the pins and put it into a pail of water.
After everything were done. We stayed a little bit longer at my mother-in-laws place and had some coffee and took a rest. While we were talking I mentioned to her about my plan to buy a bike and to my surprise, she said she will give her bike to me because she was happy we helped her. And when I saw it, its just exactly what I want.

We got also Laikka's DVD player, and a DVD cassette! I will post those gifts later sometime! Just watch for it guys!

kick off!

Give me a break!!! This is all what we need. When every day seems full of things to take care of, all we need sometime is a break! And that's what my employer gave to us last friday Sept.5. Even the fact that I was so busy that time putting everything into order as to catch the time and the fact also that I will be having my birthday party on the next day, still I manage to attend and had some fun:)
For that few hours of activities we had, it gave me time to relax and laugh and enjoy the company with my bosses and co-workers. It was indeed a big 'lobster or shrimps party':) Our employer prepared a programme, one part was a little game which I think, that was fun, and most of it the! So much shrimps and 'kräftor' (don't know exactly the english of it, my husband said its not lobster..heheh) but its a shrimp family;)
Funny thing was, my group did not won any of the three games but I got a prize of all three games, why because it was my birthday!!! hahahah what a luck!

Well, I went home earlier but I had enough:) I really thank those people who made that actitivity possible;) My SODEXO family!!! Mmmmwaah!

Perfect Sunday;)

As what I've said my party extends till Sunday;) heheh..yah great celebration cause I haven't experienced this for almost 30years:) As in celebrate life to the fullest! hahaha!
Sunday preparation was held in our own crib. My visitors this time have special part in my heart or shall I say they are not just a passing by friends;) They were the people whom I can just call anytime, visits anytime and even meet almost everyday. I can call them my extended family. I have no pressures with them, they can feel at home with me and I am so comfortable with them.
As usual, Jenny and Shy came first because Jenny was the one who cooked the chicken curry. It was so good..heheh. And of course Shy helped and did the vegesalad. I did nothing but talk and talk then prepares myself. Next who arrived was my other aunt who lives near me then my Filipina neighbor here which I can say, what a small world really is cause she is also my neighbor in Philippines:) We just knew it here and meet here. (haha,sosyal!) I can always go to her and she to me when we got dried fish;)

Last who came were my brothers and sisters in the church. We did a little sharing with the word of God then they gave a special prayer, a blessing for me. It perfects my day!

Saturday Great!

"Sweeter as the years go by"

As I posted on 'Insights' that I wish to have 35 visitors because 'twas my 35th birthday! Amazing as it was, but we were really 35 heads in all though including me and my family and children. Hmmm! It was a little too much but because we had prepared that much, everything was under control. Everyone bring their families and themselves and the always present.. the gifts:) wink* Here, time is time but because we were almost all Filipino families (our Swedish husbands already adjusted to Filipino time;) So, we started with welcome drinks and chit chats then dinner. Everyone enjoyed I think and full;)
Opening of the gifts is really important part of every birthday party here. there should be a time allotted for it. Usually it will be after slicing cake and coffee time. But what I did, was I put it in the middle. After eating dinner while everyone still full for the dessert. I open the gifts;) Everyone that has gift has to give a wish and everyone enjoys about it! It was a little unusual for them.

I had fun and was so happy and satisfied on everything they said; wishes, advices and inspiring messages for me. I also like all the gifts, heheh.

So after the laughter and some other emotional moments, and the desserts were ready. It was perfect for them also. I prepared chocolate cake and fruit cake, one filipina brought fruit salad and another friend brought leche plan. Well, everything was perfect!

The day ends with saying thanks and 'hej då's' With the never ending promises that we should keep in touch so we can chat more about our busy lives here in this foreign land;)

To God be the GLORY!!!

Shopping Time;)

I got or recieved Vitamin 'C' (cash) as gift for my birthday from my in-laws. They don't know what I want so better gave me the money and so I will be the one to buy what I want. And my sister in-law gave me a Gift Certificate worth 750kr. in a certain store, a women's wear something which not familiar to me.
Shy my friend and blogger teacher, as we know looove shopping so I asked her to go with me. So we went there and look for the store. Shy and me were little excited and wondering what this store has in stored for us shoppers..hehe.We heard that they have small sizes here so we were excited. But unfortunately, to our disappointment, nothing attracts our attention. Too big and too small, I didn't understand;) Maybe thier styles are not my taste;( peace!
It took us few hours to look but find nothing that I like. Until my time was almost over and we found a jeans jacket costs exactly what I had in the gift certificate. So, I bought it. Without checking much but because we have no more time. And because I missed already my train, it will be 30minutes after the next trip so we dropped by another store, and there I was so happy because I found many good things that I really want with a good prizes and fits me so well. With no hesitations I bought those right away and run!
Haay! what a shopping day! I brought with me 3bags of shops..aheheh from 3 different good store;) At the end of the day, I was satisfied!;)
