Charter's Best Deal of the Year!

Posted by Cecile at Monday, November 30, 2009 0 comments
This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Charter Communication. All opinions are 100% mine.

At the end of the year, Charter is making their one last push. And it is their best yet. They are very generous with their customers for running sweepstakes and promo the whole year. In fact, there's two ways you could win.What a great deals on telephone, internet cable services, free gift cards with special deals online and chances to win Charter's Daily Deal Web Site where they also offer cool prizes for the coming holiday. You could win these awesome prizes such as iPods, Camcorders, TVs, GPS units, webcams, Photo frames, and more. Amazing, isn't it?


Can you believe it if I tell you that on Black Friday, and from Cyber Monday, Charter makes you to $200 in gift cards with their special online deals? For you to keep up with all of these offers why not become a fan of Charter on Facebook? This way, you don't miss even any of that they offer.

I still remember that in the last couple of years, Charter has become one of the industry leaders with their creative and newsworthy sweepstakes where some of the prizes they have given were HDTV-a-day, A Toyota Prius, XBox 360, a new 2010 Chevy Camaro and many more.So what are you waiting for, visit their site now for more info and also become a Facebook member to keep yourself updated.

Mommy Moments: Chore Time

Posted by Cecile at Thursday, November 26, 2009 12 comments
This week's there for Mommy Moments hosted by Chris is Chore time and here is my entry.

mommy moments

"Train up your child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it." This what the bible tells us. I am glad that I grew up poor,; we don't have a helper in the house. I was trained to do chores at the very early age of six. At the age of seven, I can wash clothes, cook rice and clean the house. I am grateful for my parents who thought us responsibility at the very young age. Now, we want our son to do the same. Here are few of the photos I have taken when Jake did chores at home.

Here, Jake was raking leaves with Daddy...

...putting away his toys...

...and sweeping/vacuuming the floor.

Thank God, We Didn't Get Hurt!

Posted by Cecile at Friday, November 20, 2009 8 comments
Tonight, after dinner, I decided to take some Bilo Bilo to Ate Delia. Before we go, I phoned her first to tell we are coming. She said it is raining, don't go because she doesn't want us to get sick, but I insisted that it's okay and that the rain stopped already. She said, go ahead but make sure you bring umbrella with you...and so I did. Our apartment is less than 10 minutes away from her house, so I wasn't in a hurry. When I was approaching the major intersection, the lights were green, that means nobody will turn left. In the middle of nowhere this guy decided to turn left and crash on us! I didn't even see him coming. All I know is that all of a sudden there was this loud screech sound of tires and then crashing and pushing us all the way to the curve. Our van's tire brook and I couldn't move it. The first thing I did was check my son because he was crying. Thank God he didn't get hurt; he was just scared! I was shocked and scared, too! Grabe nanginginig talaga ko sa takot. When I found out that my son is okay, I immediately called my husband's Cellphone, but for whatever reason, it wasn't receiving any call. Then, I called 911 to report the accident. By the way, the police station is very close to where the accident happened and responded right away. Another good thing happened, a guy happened to see the whole thing; he was behind the guy who hit us and testified that it wasn't my fault, but the other car instead. Oh my, what a relief! I was grateful for he man; sad to say, forgot to ask for his name because of the whole thing, I just wished I got his name and number to thank him. I really didn't know what to do! Thanks to the police officer who helped us the whole time. Both cars were towed and the same police officer drove us home. Even though it wasn't my fault, I should have listened to Ate Delia when she told me not to go. Oh well, I learned my lesson well again. I believe that God used her to warn me. We are home now, well go get our stuff left in the van tomorrow morning. Oh, finally I got hold of hubby who is at work and told him about the accident; fifteen minutes later, there he is knocking on the door just want to make sure we are fine. I just feel so lucky and blessed that God is always there to protect us. Accident happens no matter how careful we are...there is always someone who is not patient enough to wait for his turn.

Mommy Moments: My Fave Foods

Posted by Cecile at Thursday, November 19, 2009 15 comments
mommy moments

Sometimes, Jake is weird when it comes to foods; imagine he wants an ice cream for dinner or a cake? Yup, but did I give in? No! I just say to him that he can have either of them after he eats the food on his plate. Well, anyway, aside from eating Pinoy foods and fried rice, here are my son's fave foods...ravioli, chicken nuggets, fish sticks...

an ice cream for dessert,

spaghetti, any style, he doesn't care...Pinoy style or not!

A bowl of cereal...his snack after school...

or if he did a good job at school like: he didn't pull a stick coupled with yellow notes... a cheeseburger at McDo....

cake without icing; he loves cupcakes....

and pizza!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Sponsored Tweets. All opinions are 100% mine.

With the holidays coming and all of the extra spending we do at this time of the year it is easy to get stressed out thinking of how to pay for it all and not get into debt for the new year and even years to come. We often find ourselves needing to find new and interesting ways to make some extra cash for any occasion.


Lately, we stumbled upon another profitable and even enjoyable thing to do on line that would make us money too! Have you have heard about Twitter? Sure you have! Don’t you know you can now monetize your twitter account through sponsored tweets? Sounds intriguing? SponsoredTweets will connect you with advertisers that will pay you to engage in sponsored tweets or conversations. Easy as pie. Just sign up with, set your price to get started and add a category and keywords then wait for offers from advertisers to start coming your way. You can either accept or reject an offer. You get credited within 24 hours of your tweet. You can cash out when you earn a minimum of 50 bucks. If you have been tweeting, why not add more fun to your tweeting by getting paid? If you have not been into Twitter, then it’s about time for you to sign up for sponsored tweets. You can even make money by referring your friends. Look into it and don't delay!

Sunday Stealing: The Over the Top Meme

Posted by Cecile at Sunday, November 15, 2009 0 comments
Welcome back to Sunday Stealing. Sunday Stealing originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let's go!

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Linda (A good friend of ours!) at the blog Are We There Yet??. Linda changed the meme a bit and so did we. She states that Sandy of Traveling BellsOver the Top Award. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all us thieves!

Posted by Cecile at Saturday, November 14, 2009 6 comments
Welcome to Saturday: 9 . What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

1. Do you think it was important to send a man to the moon?
~~ Not really! The money they spend on that can be spent on more important things such as improving health care plan, housing and jobs for us all!
2. What is your biggest fear?
~~ Losing my new kidneys.
3. If someone hung a sign around your neck today, what would it say and why?
~~ "Jesus said: Love Everyone. It wouldn't be easy, but it would be worth it."

~~ Getting my driver's license.

6. Whose music do you think is the most important of your generation's?
~~ The Beatles, The Carpenter and Abba.
7. Do you find it is to be kind to strangers? Give an example.
~~ First of all, there is or are missing words here on this question. I'll say, as much as I can I try to be kind to anyone I met even a stranger. I open the door at the grocery store, smile, help old people carry their grocery bag; being patient when they drive slow...and so on!
8. When do usually lose your patience?
~~ Reckless Drivers!
9. Is there a book that you're dying to see as a movie?
~~ None at this moment.

Another Blessing From God!

Posted by Cecile at Thursday, November 12, 2009 7 comments
WooHoo! At last, my hubby became a Tier once again, plus he got his seven year back from Texas Instruments. Beginning Monday, 16th of November, we would once again have good health insurance benefits; thus we don't need to pay $500 each month and $50 on every visit with our physicians. Whew, what a relief! Now, we will be able to add more on our savings... on top of the increase he just got yesterday! God is Good. He always listen to our plead. He never fail us! And we thank HIM for that!
