Our Life After Sendong Tragedy

Due to typhoon Sendong tragedy our lives become fearful here in Southern Mindanao. Iligan our nearby City which happened to have more numbers of death kept reminding us specially when bad weather occurs. My parents' house is located so close to the the sea and the river which is so dangerous when there's a flood. The people in our community now easily panic; just like two days ago we were evacuated around 2:00am to the evacuation centers in our town. Some of us stayed at the church and schools. In the morning we go back to our respected houses since there was no flood happens. I thought that scenario will end there but I was mistaken. The following day after we came from Ozamiz City we arrived home late, around 7:00pm and again the people go to evacuation centers and few people left including us in our community. I felt nervous while getting the kids ready and our things as well. I just took a deep breath and pray that things will be okay and what had happened in Iligan and Cagayan de Oro will not happen to us here.

Last night, we stayed in our friend's house located downtown instead at the evacuations centers in which the people go and stay. Fortunately no flood happens and we were so grateful for that. Now we are back in our house and hoping that no more evacuating. sigh!

I Want to Avail Instant Cash

It is December finally. But what happens to me? Here I am struggling financially! I need cash as well as hubby for the holidays. I have not availed any loans yet so last night while reading a couple of articles online it gives me the thought of availing it. Well it is not a bad idea; I know many people are into that option. This time of crisis we should be smart and spend money wisely. When do the shopping as much as possible use coupons, shop when on sale or not spend money at all.

I am not shame to tell to the world that I need money because that's the fact and who in this world doesn't need it? So tonight as soon as hubby gets online I will inform him that I want to avail the cash advance online. The procedure is so easy and hassle free. Besides the approval is not that long compared to other lending firms out there. Few days left before Christmas so I need to double my time to get some cash and be merry for the coming holidays. Does anyone of you have tried cash advance online? Would you mind sharing how fast the procedure was?

First Time Bath in the Rain

My little girl wants to take a bath in the rain but I kept saying no to her. She's so stubborn and there she go under the rain. She had lots of audience as it was her first time and had a blast. She's so funny! After this moment she whispered to me this "Mom tomorrow again!" lol! So I answered OKAY! lol!

Then my eldest (4 yr old. son) got jealous, and he told me "Me too will join next time to take a bath in the rain. Mom, it will rain again tomorrow?" Oh, the innocent one he also never experienced grabbing the opportunity of what the rain offers because of the mother's word NO.

Reminiscing my childhood days, I had fun always in the rain. Since we just walk from home to school and vise versa, my mother was not there to say NO to bath in the rain because we already did it while walking together with other children. So we look like a wet chick when we arrived home (cold and freezing). lol!

Hubby's Birthday Cake

We celebrated husband's birthday yesterday at home despite of his absence. Just prepared a couple of recipes for the family. Of course I ordered a cake for us as my usual habit if there's a birthday celebration in the house. So here we go the cake wrapped with yummy yellow icing.


Here I go with the kids having a pose prior to the blowing of candle. lol!

Garden Gate Design

I'm into the search of a simple but nice gate design for our backyard. As much as possible I want to save more than the last gate we had installed for the front of our house. I already talked to the contractor and he mentioned the price which is so high for me. Now I came up to the idea that I'll be the one to buy the materials and I'll just pay the labor. Hmmm... I need to think bout it again.

Woodwork design.

combination of steel and wood.

Which one between the 2 designs do you prefer?
