The Barbie Dolls...

are lined up waiting for their turns for a salon make-over. This was during one of the play times with the girls.

What are my girls favorite play/game? They love pretending to be somebody so we always ended up doing the following make-believes:

1. Teacher-Student
2. Doctor - Patient
3. Hairdresser - Client
4. Chef-Waiter-Customer
5. Cashier - Shopper

Really fun to have girls!

She had a haircut...

Margaux loves going with me to the salon. She went with me one time to have her haircut. She enjoyed being pampered in the salon too. From the shampooing, to the haircut and having her hair blow-dried.

I love her cut this time...Was wondering if I do look like her already?

Books for the Girls...

I got a number of books from "Books for Less" the other day. I was so happy to get these since most of these are just worth Php 50! But they are all in good condition. I took those easy reading books that would help in training Margaux to read. The books are really geared for Kindergarten students and there's even a process to follow for the parents in helping their child to read. I think these are good deals from Books for Less. Some are even Dr. Seuss books. I am making it a point to read books to them every night before going to bed. I have actually planned out already the books that they are going to read every week. We have a number in stock so I have no worries...

Thanks to one of my clients for giving this to me! I love combos but I am in South Beach Diet now so I would probably pass this up. The husband and the kids are feasting on it on the other hand.  Speaking of my South Beach Diet, I am on my first day.  Goodluck to me!  I would really like to survive this cycle.  In fact, I am thinking to go on Phase 1 for a minimum of 1 month.  Dieting is really taking its toll on me.  It's hard to lose those stubborn extra pounds and no matter how I don't eat much, it's just there.  Is it because of the age?  Oh well, I hope the SBD could still do the trick.  I'm taking it one step a time.  Will post also my progress.

On Sunglasses

This is one of my favorite photos taken in Griffith Park. Obviously, the sun was up so high during our visit there since it was noon time. The kids love wearing sun glasses. And they actually got that fondness from me since I always wear one whenever I am out. Of course this is to protect my eyes since I have been wearing contact lens for years now. And it is important to actually ensure as well that the contact lens I am wearing fits me well. Don't want to be like Lady Gaga on her music video of Bad Romance who was actually wearing huge eyes. I think she should just have gotten her lens from Stahl Eye Center, a known eye center in New York.

Researching on Lasik...

Yes, I have been doing a lot of researching about Lasik as I am highly considering to do have that procedure. Check also what I found out on the internet. You may google USAEyes and find out about "The Best of Ophthalmology...EyeWorld News Magazine" article. is a known patient advocacy organization that conducts a national Lasik results survey to certify select Lasik surgeons. The site actually is full of information for those who have a number of questions about the said procedure.  I am picking out a number of reliable facts from there.  I hope there is something like that in the country today.

Priceless Moment...

Call me OA, but yes...I'm sniffing after taking the above picture. 

This is Margaux.  Look how happy she was to see me during one of her dismissal from school!  

Such priceless moment indeed!

He is a hip-hop!

A friend actually asked me to accompany her to look for a gift for her husband. She wanted to check out some men's hip-hop jewelry because that's what her husband prefers. We went around to about two malls without finding any. In fact, what we found out was a Gucci watch for her. It was so funny that she was trying to get something for her husband and all of a sudden, she ended up buying for herself. I actually even prevented her from checking other women's jewelry from another store as it may not be a good idea as well. I'm sure I would also find something nice and I wouldn't want to be placed on that position, lol! 

We were still looking and finally decided to call a friend who is based in New York City.  Apparently, she would be on vacation here in Manila in the next two weeks so it would be a perfect time to bring home a treat in case she finds something from the stores there. But instead, she actually recommended for us to check the site of TranxNYC so we can check how huge is their selection of hip-hop and urban style jewelry.  I was made aware that they do sell a number of pieces suitable for the hip-hop fashion market.  They are actually a  favorite of most hip-hop artists.  Got curious on the site so I also checked it myself.  I must say, they really have nice watches and other jewelries.  Should you actually need something like it, don't forget to look into their site.
