Decorating Cookies

Our camera activities for the last couple of weeks was very limited because we all got sick.  In fact I don't have any picture with my burritos so I am posting this  old one when we were decorating cookies.  
Ms. Burrito got  over with  with her ear infection although she is still coughing once in a while.  Mr. Burrito on the other hand got fevered again last night so we did not sleep very well because of it.  My husband took him for a walk yesterday and I guess that was the reason but I am not sure.  I am still praying for their  total recovery so  we could all sleep at night and they would go back  to being active again and  get their appetite back.  Whew, it's hard when your kids get sick.

Ear Infection

 Our weekend got  a sudden twist.  We brought Ms. Burrito to the  doctor again because she was complaining of an ear ache.  I can tell that she  was pretty tore up because she was crying a lot.  This is the very first time that she have an ear infection.  She never cried when she gets sick but this one just crushed her.  There's only one doctor provider during the weekend so we have waited  for a long time and during those time that we were waiting, she was miserable.

Then we finally got to see the nurse, she took her vitals, then  brought us in a room.  Of course we have to wait again.  We were comforting her through hugs and even tried to read book on her but still, she was in agony.  I started  massaging her back and she fell asleep.  When the doctor arrived she was sleeping already.  I felt so bad for my Burrito, I hate to see them suffer.

Anyhow, here are some  photos I took to pass the time while we were  in the waiting area.
Mr. Burrito would sit still, he explores every  corner of the room.
I took some shots of the fish in the  fish tank in the  waiting area.
Have a great week ahead everyone!

Save Money. Be Happy!

With the  economic crunch that  most of us  are experiencing, finding ways to save is a must.    At our household, we uses coupons every time we go shopping especially on big purchase and even  on our regular  grocery shopping.  It helps to use coupons every time you  go buy the things that you need.  My husband and I always browse  online for available coupons that we can use.  It helps us a lot to save money when buying stuff that we need in our household.

One of our favorite source  online is getting the  coupons at  This website offers  coupon codes for  your favorite  big merchants such as JC Penny, Drugstore, Ann Taylor,, and many more.  Finding the right coupon that you need is easier with their  well-organized website.  You can narrow down your search by clicking the category that you are looking for such as kids and baby, office supplies, online services, home and garden, and many more.  The good thing about this website is that, you would be able to ask questions and some members will  try to help you out by answering your questions.  So if you ever need  a coupon for the things that you want to buy,  visit the above mentioned website first.

First Steps Visit

We brought our burritos to their doctor last  Tuesday because of their flu.  As usual the doctor isn't the one who looked at them but  a PA.  I hate to say this but we are no longer happy  of their services.  When you singed in, you will wait  to up to 30 minutes before your name gets called.  Then a nurse will check you, then wait again in a room, then a  PA student will  do the same, ask the same, and left then you have to wait again for the health provider.  Then the PA assistant will come, do the same and ask the same questions.  
The only consolation is that while waiting, I have time to take pictures of the kids to pass the time as they get bored so quickly.
We are now looking for another provider.  Maybe we could find  someone that actually care for their patients.  You know what I mean?  The only time we get to see the doctor was during our first visit and that was it.
Do you know what their diagnose is?  None, they just  gave the kids each a dose of motrin and that was it.  I am sure that the bill for the motrin will cost so much.    Our kids still coughs till now.
I hate to rant as I want my blog to have a positive   recording of our  activities but cases like this gets into my freaking nerves.  Oh well, it was our choice to  pick them and now we know we made a mistake and we are correcting it.  We will soon bid bye bye to this establishment.
Hugging each other while waiting for someone to see them.  Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Search Marketing

Do you need a search marketing company to promote the product and services that  your company offers?  There is a new marketing program available now that you can use where in you would be able to  track down your ROI to your expenditures and stuff.  Good marketing strategy  always helps  a company in reaching their lifelong goal.  

Honda Dealership

We know when our car is due for services because the Honda dealer in our area where we bought our  vehicle is sending us a reminder with a coupon on it.  Aside from that we also  have this  feature in our Accord where the red light comes on  indicating which services the car needs.  IT's been almost six years since we  have our car and  we haven't had any problems with it  yet (which I hope not).  That's why my husband prefers Honda  over other kinds of vehicle.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a Honda dealer in Chicago, please visit  This website has a  humongous inventory of different models of new Honda vehicles.  They are the leading Chicago Honda Dealer where you can find good deals.  Check out this  new version and upgraded of the Honda Accord that we bought.  This one is loaded with   new features.  They have so many selection of the new Honda Accord on their list.

Service Specials like free break inspection, oil change and inspection for only $24.95, pothole special which is a four wheel alignment, and they still have the winterization special that cost  under a hundred bucks.  You can print out the coupon and bring it to the nearest Chicago Honda dealership in your area.  Clip and save!

Lessons at Home

Below are some photos I snapped during our lesson session at home.  Ms. Burrito  is addicted to learning  stuff, she never want her mind gets idle even if she is sick.  I told her to  lay down in bed  and rest but she said that she's bored just laying there.  Even when she is watching TV, she has to do some crafts while watching.
I am glad that I bought these books for both of my Burritos because it gives us something fun to do aside from playing their toys.
Ms. Burrito is using the first grader book while Mr. Burrito is pre-school book.
The little young man still haven't focus in learning stuff yet, for him playing is much better to do.  But I think through his Ate's motivation, he will be on it in  his own time.
Hope you guys are warm in your side of the world as it is  freezing cold over here again.  We accumulated at least 9 inches of snow since yesterday.

Lost in Paradise

When we visited  one of my father-in-law's sister down in Morgantown West Virginia, we got lost along the way but luckily, we ended up in  a barn that is owned by two sisters.  They have so many  animals there including dogs, ducks, chicken, goats, and who knows what they got that we did not see.  Anyhow, the  women who owned the barn were very nice to even invited us to stop by and  have the kids ride one of their horses.  The kids had so much fun that they want to go back there sometimes.   My husband and I both have a bad sense  in direction so we  usually get lost especially when we did not have  a GPS yet.  But mind you, sometimes being lost is a good thing.  Look at the the smiles of those little burritos.  It is like being lost in paradise.

Ultimate Steal

If you are looking for a perfect spot or place to stay during your stay in New York,  the  Setai Fifth Avenue  in setai new york is an ultimate steal.  It is located in Midtown Manhattan so it is like staying in the heart of New York City.  Now, I haven't been to New York yet but by just looking at the photos available at Jet Luxury Resort website,  the place  is luxurious!

Treasured Keepsakes

Tooth/Curl Pewter Shoes SetI have  so many precious  keepsakes about my burritos especially when they were babies.  Some are bought by us and some were given by family and friends.  If you are expecting or have a baby right now and  is looking for some   keepsakes for babies, Personal Creations is the perfect place to shop to.   Their products does not limit to babies only, they have  products for  every generation and for every occasion.

I was hoping that a white lady or something will show up in the photo errrr.  I am just kidding folks lol.

Hybrid Result

Internet has brought us a lot of convenience when it comes to finding stuff and dealing with different transactions online.  There are so many search engines that you can use that offers both international or worldwide results.  If you  want to narrow your search into a local one, the hybrid result from different  powerful search engines into one is the best one for you to use.  Search engines such as,,, and has partnered to in order to provide an accurate  answer to your local search.

Before we  bought our GPS system, my husband and I rely on getting our  direction online because we are both have a very poor sense in direction.  If we go without consulting  the  internet, we  would surely get lost.  Sometimes even if we have  a printed direction at hand, we still get lost.  Do you know why?  Because some  search engines provides a  not-so-clear or in other words very complicated direction to follow. wants to eliminate that by partnering with the above mentioned website in order to come  up with an accurate result for your search.  So if you are searching for a local restaurant, use because they serve as the local yellowpages.

Sisterhood - Nostalgia # 41

Good morning everyone, howdy?  I am forcing myself to function today as I have  some tasks to write and I have to fetch my daughter to school later on.  After I took a shot of nyquail last night, I was knocked out.  Tat was the earliest time I went to bed (10 pm).  Ms. Burrito  is still coughing a little bit but  she doesn't have a fever anymore.  I told her to just rest for today but she wanted to go to school.  Pardon me folks if I wasn't around  lately in your blogs, I just don't have the power to really bloghop although I am trying.  

PhotobucketMy Nostalgia for today is about my sister Yheng (she 's with a cap on).  Before my ranting, let me  first greet her a happy birthday hehehe.  She will be celebrating her birthday in a couple of days.

 I sent her to college  so that she could find a job when she graduate but after two years she told me that she wanted to quit as she wants to get a job.  I told her that she should finish her  college first but she said that she honesty don't think that  school is for her.  So I let her go because if a person does not want to help  themselves there's nothing you can do right?  At least she was honest enough to tell me.  I was disappointed of course.  

Anyhow, she went to Manila to find a job, stayed at my sister's and was jobless for about a year.  Then she got hired as a tutor of a well-to-do family but after 6 months, she wrote my mother to send her some money because she wanted to go home.  I was like "Whaaaaaat?"  Then I have learned that she got knocked up by jobless bum.  Imagine how I feel that time.  She's pregnant, no husband, no job and  she is going home to our home.  I was furious but  again nothing I can do as my Mom told me "she's a family".  My concern is the additional mouth that Mama has to feed which means that I have to send her extra for it, whew.

I am sorry folks for unloading it here, I just can't help thinking about the wrong decisions that she made.  When she gave birth she asked me if we could help her to go to school again, this time I said NO!  I am unemployed and just earning a little online and I can't afford to send three siblings in school all together.  Besides I gave her a chance before and she blew it.  When we went to visit my family two years ago, I told her to concentrate on raising her kids before thinking of her own happiness as she isn't single anymore.  Next thing I know, she got pregnant again and living in with a younger  man with no permanent job.. sigh.
The photo above was taken at the apartment that I was renting when I was still in the Philippines.  They were still very young then, fast forward for six years, two has babies already and the younger  two are still in school but they have grown.

Insuring the iGeneration

If you are looking for  a good deal on home insurance, check out the list of  home insurance companies at iMingle.?  iMingle offers auto, home,  and renters insurance that are affordable so if you are  in the market for the above mentioned   subject, I  strongly recommend the site.  Having a multiple policy with iMingle is advantageous as you will automatically get the Multi-Policy discount that the company gives to their clients.  You can chat with a representative if you have some questions or get a quote  by typing in your zipcode in their search bar.

Reading the article about their insurance coverage makes me dig some more  to find out if we could save with them.  Right now we get our home and auto insurance  in one company but I don't recall them giving us any kind of discount like iMingle gives for their clients.  I'll let you know the outcome next time.

Bankruptcy Resource

Are you overwhelmed with so much debts?  If you are, you should check out Bankruptcy Information Services that could help you get a fresh start.  Sometimes  there are situation that we can hardly control, things happen and we have  really spend ever dime  that we have and  the result  is catastrophe.  Do not let the situation ruin your whole life though, there are still options available that you can do like filing a bankruptcy.  Of course it will be the last recourse that you do if you can still fix your finances because  bankruptcy records can stay with you for a while but if you do not have any other option left, then  go for it. Just  make sure to  consult a bankruptcy expert so thy can guide you  every step of the way. He above link will lead you to Steigerwalt Law Firm, a company that helps many  clients in straightening up their finances  history.  With their  expertise and experience, you would be able to pull it through.

Hair Restoration

The common problem that arises to men  more than women  is the hair loss.  Lucky  for them  because the  high technology brought some  highly innovative solution to hair restoration.    There are many  medications that  are applicable to this kind of problem nowadays.  Unlike hair transplant, some of these medications only work  for  a short period of time.

With hair transplant surgery, best hair transplant surgeon uses modern technology such as follicular unit hair transplantation.  Hair transplant surgeon uses  small section of hair donor and effectively manipulates the hair follicle  in order  for the hair to grow naturally on the bald spots.

Hair is said to be our crowning glory and  I  agree to that.  While some people looks good being bald, most doesn't.  So if you want a new hair, I suggest for you to check out the best hair transplant surgeons  through the link above.  Most of their locations are available in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Delaware.

 These two burritos were magnetized  together when the loving old man popped out this old magnet that he found in his garage.  Mr. Burrito immediately asked if he could play with it and Pap told him that he could bring it home.  
It's amazing how simple things like this can make children very happy.  Thanks Dad!

Laughter is the Best Gift

We celebrated Mr. K's birthday with my loving FIL. It was a very simple one but memorable with the presence of our beloved Dad.
The kids were very happy that Dad came over.   Earlier that day, Dad locked his car keys inside the house so Mr. K had to go there and climbed in his window to get the key.  I am glad that we live nearby.
I cooked some food  for us to eat.  I was going to bake a lasagna but since Dad  love  the Filipino style spaghetti, I cooked the latter.  Thanks a lot Dad for coming over.
Isn't those laughter the best gift there is? Thanks for visiting everyone.


It's been..
