today for Kindermusik with Bianca was so much fun. Although, I felt really tired since the little girl has been running around the entire room the whole time. It was unfortunate that my camera went on low bat and wasn't really able to take pictures while inside the class. Bianca was receptive to most of the activities. She loves the part where we have to hold hands and go in circle around the room. I even found an acquintance in the class, Leah Sanchez of Bridesmaids and Company also enrolled her daughter Lia on the same class. I'm looking forward to next week for another session.

We are down to our last 5 sessions for Margaux's swimming lessons. I'm proud to say that she has improved a lot in terms of her comfortability in water. She knows now how to properly kick and also to paddle her hands. She sometimes feel scared still to submerge herself but after convincing and reassuring that she just needs to close her mouth, she's fine with that exercise already. Her favorite part of the class is jumping down to the pool!
Look at one of her classmates, that little girl is just 1 year and 8 months! I'm now thinking to enroll Bianca as well to the same class. When we went to Boracay, both of them love the water! Margaux can even be left alone in the middle of the pool as long as she is wearing a floater. She was just threading then since she can no longer reach the floor.

It is so amazing that even if you have two kids (or even more) already, you don’t actually divide your love to both of them. You will be capable of multiplying everything. There will be no preferences. Your heart becomes bigger in showing and caring how much you love them.
I'm a proud mom of these two...

Dicky and I went to Miriam College Child Study Center this morning to enroll Margaux. Our first born is an official preschooler already come June. Parent's Orientation will be on June 13 and start of classes will be June 16. We will go back by friday to check for her uniforms. I'm so excited to see her in those cute scrubs. I'm really hoping she will enjoy school, the Big School that is. There would be no backing out this time, tuition fee has been paid!

Medical careers are very much in demand now. Whether as a doctor, more so for being a nurse or physical therapist, these careers are highly being sought after especially abroad. Being an x-ray technician is also becoming popular. If you are fascinated with machines like x-rays, MRIs and other imaging technologies, a career as an x ray technician is for you. An xray technician prepare patients for filming and operate x-ray imaging machinery. It requires extensive knowledge of both anatomy and imaging technology. You can check out medical-career-training.com for schools that offer this course and for job opportunities available.
My cousin who recently graduated from high school is not yet decided on what course to take in college. Most of my aunts are encouraging her to try any career from the medical field. But she is so hesistant since she is not sure if she can take the science subjects. My other cousin in Canada who is a pharmacy technician recommends her to look into pharmacy course. I learned that pharmacy technican salary nowadays is actually above average than the basic salary being given to new college graduates. Aside from that, she would actually have the chance to apply overseas after graduation as a pharmacy tech. My cousin from Canada can actually help her. Hope she can decide soon.

Got this interesting tag from Joanne.
Copy here:1. Take the test - Love Visual DNA.
2. Post your result by adding your name (linked to your blog), your love type (linked to your Love DNA result).
3. Tag everybody else!
Results:1. Aggie - Warm and Fuzzy
2. Thea - Warm and Fuzzy
3. Kelly - Warm and Fuzzy
4. Jody - Warm and Fuzzy
5. Add yourself here.
I’m tagging Pheng, Dez and Chat.
For my results:
It looks like you are someone who’s very down to earth when it comes to love. You tend to be pretty realistic about what makes a lifelong partnership work. You understand the value of forging a love based on friendship, respect and shared values. In fact, often your relationships develop out of friendships and your lover tends to be your best friend. Marriage and children are probably central to your life. As far as you’re concerned, a true relationship is one that matures with time and work. Just make sure you keep the spark of passion alive.
You feel most comfortable in a solid relationship based on trust. Love is your life-blood? It fills you with energy and makes the world seem even more beautiful. Right now you couldn’t imagine a better place to be. You’re positively glowing with happiness and feeling very secure. Just how you like it.
Home life is really important to you. It is the focus of all the love that you have to give. For you, love can sometimes be tempestuous. But you’ve learn to weather the storms and emerge even stronger on the other side. Your choice of animal shows that you are a very loyal person. You like to look out for the one you love and have very strong protective instincts.
Love is cuddling up in the sofa with a glass of wine or lounging in bed with the Sunday papers. It’s important to be with someone who really understands you and is sensitive to your feelings. You dream of growing old with the one you love. A strong friendship is the secret for a true lovematch. You’re a caring soul. For you a healthy relationship is one where you can lean on each other when the going gets tough. True love is about taking the rough with the smooth. After all, you’re in this together.
When I was still young, I have always wanted to enroll in a culinary school but didn't really got the chance. Actually, there were very few culinary schools available that time. I wonder if there was like the Culinary-School-Finder.com that is a good resource for careers in culinary and some chef school. I wonder if my kids will have interest in this field?
the agony is over! Dicky got the results yesterday. Margaux made it in the interview! She passed and now qualified for admission for the First Step Level of Miriam College Child Study Center for school year 2008-2009. I'm just one happy mom!
Yes, the little girl will go to the BIG school already. Can't wait for her to unleash her potential. Hahaha!
