The Faceshop....Then and Now....

I saw this ad in the September 2006 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine....

To a koreanovela addict like me, he is a familiar face. He is Kwon Sang-woo, the male lead of the very popular koreanovela Stairway to Heaven. Oh by the way, I super love the themesong of this koreanovela. It's entitled Bogoshipda (I miss you) sang by Kim Bom Su.

Anyways, as we all know, Leader is now the endorser of The Faceshop.

This picture was taken at the Mall of Asia. But I already forgot when it was taken. Mianhae :(

The Other Side Of Me.....

My youngest son, Jason and I went to the mall last Sunday. While roaming around, I thought of giving in to my passion...singing! And what better way to do it than inside a videoke room (even if my son doesn't like it hehehe). So I asked Jason to buy me fifty pesos worth of token which is good for 10 songs. I recorded only eight songs though. The microphone is a bit grounded...arrrgh! The room is too hot, you will notice that in all the videos as I keep on wiping my face with my hankie.

I am giving you permission to listen to these songs. And if you have any comments... PLEASE JUST KEEP IT TO YOURSELF!!! Hahahahaha!

Anyway, here are the videos:

Don't Cry Out Loud by Melissa Manchester

Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know by The Nolans

Friend of Mine by Odette Quesada

I Think I'm In Love by Kuh Ledesma

I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor

Like A Virgin by Madonna

Valentine by Martina McBride

Okay, I think this is it. I'm having a hard time posting the last song, My Immortal by Evanescence.

For positive comments, you may post here. FOR VIOLENT REACTIONS, LET'S SEE EACH OTHER IN COURT! Hahahaha!

Happy Birthday, Nanay!

July 16, 2011 marked the 66th birthday of my mother-in-law, Carmen Villabroza. We had a simple celebration. Her children were all present to celebrate her special day. I'd like to share with you some pics.

Yum! Yum!

This chocolate cake was given by Grace, one of her grandchildren

The blowing of candles!

The opening of gifts.....

Here is a short video of her "crying moment"....
 I wish to thank my sister in law, Roma, for planning all this. And to those who wasn't able to attend....Look at what you've missed!.....

Till next time!

After a stressful day......

I went to SM City Bicutan yesterday to unwind after a stressful day at NLRC Region IV. Imagine, we arrived at 1:30PM, meeting with Arbiter Danna Castillon started at 4PM (we were last on the list), we ended at 5PM, brought Atty. Padilla to his office at 5:45PM and arrived at SM City Bicutan at exactly 6:30PM! Whew! Can you beat that???

Anyways, I was talking to an officemate when my eyes caught the most beautiful numbers i have ever seen . .  hahaha!

Are you ready? Here they are.....


















More close-up pics :

I saw these set of books at National Bookstore. No wonder, 501 made my day beautiful yesterday.

See you soon...Kim Hyun Joong!

Good news to all Triple S and Henecians!

Kim Hyun Joong will be coming to see us on August 25, 2011 for a very special event. Please check this poster which I got from Polyeast Records.

The good news is that there is no ticket selling. All you have to do is to buy his Breakdown mini album on the day of the event.

I am still awaiting for the details of this and I will be glad to share it with you. I will surely go since I wasn't able to see him last year when he performed with Beast. Can't wait to see him in person... :-)


Pag-ibig Fund Coordinators' Association General Assembly

I attended last July 8, 2011 the 4th General Assembly of Pag-ibig Fund Coordinators' Association. The agenda was to introduce "new payment facilities" which employers can use to remit loan and contribution payments. The irony of it, it turned out that the "new payment facility" that they want to introduce is Unionbank's OneHub.gov which we have been using since 2005. And the Online Membership Registration which I have been using since last month! The reason why I got really bored! But for the benefit of my co-FCs who are new to these two programs, I kept quiet. I busied myself texting....and texting.....and texting....who else but my lola! (You know who you are hehehe)

Anyways, it was held at Palmera's Garden Restaurant in San Pablo City. The nice view of the restaurant took away the boredom that I felt all throughout the discussion. And of course, it won't be complete without pictures!

What is a drummer without her drum stick?

I decided to take a pic of this sleeping anaconda. Pet of the restaurant's owner, perhaps?

See you next time!
