Early Spring Activities

Posted by Cecile at Saturday, March 28, 2009 6 comments
The weather is getting nicer and the days are getting longer and it's time to get outdoors again and enjoy all that nature has to offer. Try some of these activities for a day of good, old-fashioned spring time fun.

1. Go fly a kite! March winds make this activity perfect. Find a kite that is bowed so that wind can spill evenly over the two sides of the kite; flat kites tend to be unstable, and we've found that cheap kites are most often the ones that work best.

2. Enjoy some swings. Few things make you feel more alive than a gust of wind in the face, and if you teach your kids proper swinging technique (push legs out when going forward, pull them in when going back), they will enjoy hours of fun without you having to push each of them!

3. Plant some pansies - the signature flower of spring. Find a sunny location with rich soil and good drainage, dig a hole deep enough for the soil and roots (holes should be 6-10 inches apart), and help your children place the pansies in their holes. For other ideas of how to garden with children, visit kidsgardening.org.

Ring Tag

Posted by Cecile at Friday, March 27, 2009 10 comments
This interesting tag was given to me by Dhemz of My Life's Perception and Inspiration. Thanks, dear for including me again on the lists :-). You are so sweet and thoughtful for thinking of me every time. It took awhile for me to post this one because I can't do the finger illustration myself, have to ask my son do it for me. So, if these pictures don't look the way it should be, sorry. My son did his best and has been very patient with me! Thanks, my little buddy :-)!

Why should the wedding ring be worn on the fourth finger? There is a beautiful and convincing explanation given by the Chinese..... Thumb represents your Parents



Second (Index) finger represents your Siblings.
Middle finger represents your-Self.
Fourth (Ring) finger represents your Life Partner. & the.. .
Last (Little) finger represents your children.

Firstly, open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers and hold them together - back to back.
Secondly, open and hold the remaining three fingers and the thumb - tip to tip. (As shown in the figure below):

Take 2...
Now, try to separate your thumbs (representing the parents)..., they will open, because your parents are not destined to live with you lifelong, and have to leave you sooner or later. Please join your thumbs as before and separate your Index fingers (representing siblings)...., they will also open, because your brothers and sisters will have their own families and will have to lead their own separate lives.

Now join the Index fingers and separate your Little fingers (representing your children)...., they will open too, because the children also will get married and settle down on their own some day. Finally, join your Little fingers, and try to separate your Ring fingers (representing your spouse). You will be surprised to see that you just CANNOT..... because Husband and Wife have to remain together all their lives - through thick and thin!! Please try this out and pass............. ISN'T THIS A LOVELY THEORY?

Now it is my turn to pass this tag to: All who haven't been tagged yet. Feel free to grab it, guys and have fun!

In Honor of Spring!

Posted by Cecile at Monday, March 23, 2009 1 comments
Spring Flowers

For winter's rains and ruins are over,
And all the season of snows and sins;
The days dividing lover and lover,
The light that loses, the night that wins;
And time remembered is grief forgotten,
And frosts are slain and flowers begotten,

And in green underwood and cover
Blossom by blossom the spring begins.

We met through blogging almost a year ago, and just like her, I never thought we would be as close as a sister. We are both the only girl in our family and I think that was one of the reason why we "click" you guys know what I mean. She is sweet, friendly, nice, pretty and very thoughtful. Thanks, Dhemz. I sure appreciate the friendship we have. Stay what and who you are...for that is the "best"!

She surprised me with a birthday post in her blog and these package: the bell from state of California (she knew I am collecting bells from every states I have been to), a birthday card and a very nice blouse that fits perfectly. Isn't she generous also?

Issue about pornography is constantly on the news and it is sad. Most of it happens in the workplace where workers are involve. This type of thing is not only forbidden by law but most of all the God Almighty, and it needs to be stopped. Nobody wants hostile work environment. So what do you think would you do if you found out that one of of your co worker is involve with pornography with out hurting his/her feeling? Well, the best solution is to report it to the HR or IT, and they themselves will conduct an investigation using SurfRecon ERT; a device that allows IT or HR professional use to discreetly review a suspect computer for pornographic content, without exposing themselves to that content. This will help modify behavior and increase work productivity. Don't wait too long, get SurfRecon ERT before it's too late!

Was Born to Serve!

Posted by Cecile at Wednesday, March 18, 2009 6 comments
I like the result of Dr. Phil's Personality Quiz. It is so me! I believe that everyone is a "hero" in his/her own way! Don't you think?

Now, we are not talking about becoming a super hero... but you were born to help others and put others in front of your needs. You are caring and that is your biggest strength. You will do really well in fields where you have to help others, like a social worker or a doctor... the options are many!

Manic Monday #159

Posted by Cecile at Monday, March 16, 2009 0 comments

I am having fun with this meme; want to have fun,too? Then click here.



Are you a saver or spender?

I used to be a little bit of both, but now, I'll say, I am a saver.

Do you prefer to walk around barefoot in your home? Socks? Shoes?

Yes, I walk barefooted inside, but I prefer to wear flip flop outside.


Do you talk to yourself?

Yes, sometimes. But I don't think I am crazy.

Funny Things about Irish Symbols

Posted by Cecile at Monday, March 16, 2009 7 comments
Whether you're Irish or not, chances are you've celebrated St. Patrick's Day one way or another. And why not? St. Patrick's Day is pure fun. Green clothes. Green food. Green beer. (Green under the gills.) And what better way to enhance this celebration than with funny Irish poems?

Somehow, there are more symbols of Ireland than there are of other European countries, and these symbols make for great funny Irish poems. France has the Eiffel Tower, and maybe a beret; Germany has the pointy WWI helmet; and England has those bushy beefeater hats and Big Ben. But Ireland, Ireland has a treasure trove of symbols, all perfect for funny Irish poems.

Leprechauns. Consider the legendary leprechaun. Think "Lucky Charms" to get the right image. Leprechauns are not so much about luck as about the fantasy of instant wealth. Leprechauns, two-foot-high cobblers (shoemakers), are cranky old fairy-men rumored to each own a "pot of gold." These tricky little guys have to give up their gold so long as you can keep them in your sights. But if you are tricked into looking away, the leprechaun vanishes.

Blarney. And talk about Blarney! Blarney is the Irish gift of persuasive gab. The best way to get it, according to legend and lore, is with a kiss of the Blarney Stone. The Blarney stone is set in the base of the Blarney Castle, in Blarney, Ireland. Many of us don't travel so far for this gift of gab and instead buy a bottle of it at the corner market.

Shamrocks. What would St. Patrick's Day be without a shamrock? You might think that a shamrock must have four leaves, but you'd be mistaken. While many people do believe that a four-leaf clover is particularly lucky, the official shamrock is the classic three-leaf variety. St. Patrick himself used the three-leaf shamrock to explain the trinity, somewhere during the 400s AD, while a missionary in what is now Northern Ireland. You have to wonder if he did his explaining at the pub, or if he had any inkling of the holiday that would evolve in his name.

Limericks. If you're thinking funny Irish poems, you're probably thinking limericks. But the truth is that the limerick form was first made popular in England because of the famous nonsense-writer, Edward Lear. However, a good funny Irish poem can always be written as a limerick or in any poetic form.

Fun. The most important element of a secular celebration of St. Patrick's Day is fun! (Yes, many Irish do attend church for this holiday. Really.) in addition to the parties, the food, the friends and the green beer, it's good to also include the pure free fun of funny Irish poems.

Happy St. Patrick Day to you!

A Perfect Blend of Friendship Award

Posted by Cecile at Tuesday, March 10, 2009 12 comments
I got this from Richard of Dreamworks, the very sweet guys I know in the blogsphere. Thanks, dear for this very nice tag. I am glad to have met you here. Hope someday to meet you in person with your very "special someone" who is working overseas right now. Take care and God Bless You! I also want to put Liza's name here of This is My Life (Mom of Four), my kababayan and a good friend whom I also met here. Thanks for being such a nice, sweet and thoughtful friend.

What is a friend? You search on Google and you will find hundreds of different meaning of Friends, or Friendship. I don't have much friends around me, it's not because I am a stuck up, or picky. But because I find few that is pure hearted and true to their hearts.

Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.

To handle yourself, use your head.. to handle others, use your heart.


There are some that will treat you as a friend because they want you to baby sit their kids so they can go out and drink with their friends. Some will say they are your friends so they can borrow money from you and not pay you back. Many will claim to be your friends, but then will talk bad about you in front of others. Some will only remember to call you when they need help or they want something.


I have few friends of my own love me for who and what I am. We share tears and laughter, pains and glory, and they know that I will do everything I can, to help them out when they are in need.
They are friends through thick and thin and good bad times, too! They never talk behind my back when I am not present. We respect each other and we can be who we are without any judgment or being offended. These are what I called real true friends.

Okay, I changed my mind now, I thought everyone have this award already, since it has been circulating on the blogsphere for quite awhile now, but I was wrong, so, I am now sharing this award to the following goods friends I met on the blogsphere namely: Amy, Maria, Analee, Clarisaa, Ron, Payatot, Nancy, KittyKat, Hazel and WhiteShadow.

mommy moments

This was Jacob's first bath after he was discharged from the hospital. And Dad was giving him a bath instead of me because I was scared. He was tiny still and I thought I couldn't handle it; he was too fragile to me :-(.

Then, when he can sit on his own already, we gave him a bath on the kitchen sink, and he loves it.Finally, he has his bath in the bathroom with his own bath tub.
Then, in the bath tub. Now he takes a shower...of course with our help!

World's Worst Cultural Mistakes

Posted by Cecile at Wednesday, March 04, 2009 9 comments
Don’t let blowing your nose or taking off your shoes land you in hot water when you travel
By Sallie Brady

Touching Someone

Where It’s Offensive: Korea, Thailand, China, Europe, the Middle East.

What’s Offensive: Personal space varies as you travel the globe. In Mediterranean countries, if you refrain from touching someone’s arm when talking to them or if you don’t greet them with kisses or a warm embrace, you’ll be considered cold. But backslap someone who isn’t a family member or a good friend in Korea, and you’ll make them uncomfortable. In Thailand, the head is considered sacred — never even pat a child on the head.

What You Should Do Instead: Observe what locals are doing and follow suit. In Eastern countries remember that touching and public displays of affection are unacceptable. In places like Qatar and Saudi Arabia, men and women are forbidden from interacting, let along touching.

Knowing Your Right from Your Left

Where It’s Offensive: India, Morocco, Africa, the Middle East.

What’s Offensive: Many cultures still prefer to eat using traditional methods — their hands. In these cases, food is often offered communally, which is why it’s important to wash your hands before eating and observe the right-hand-is-for-eating and the left-hand-is-for-other-duties rule. If you eat with your left hand, expect your fellow diners to be mortified. And when partaking from a communal bowl, stick to a portion that’s closest to you. Do not get greedy and plunge your hand into the center.

What You Should Do Instead: Left-handed? Attempt to be ambidextrous — even children who are left-handed in these cultures are taught to eat with their right hand — or at least explain yourself to your fellow diners before plunging in.

Keeping Your Clothes On

Where It’s Offensive: Scandinavian countries, Turkey.

What’s Offensive: Wearing bathing suits, shorts and T-shirts, underwear, or any other piece of clothing into a sauna, hammam, or other place of physical purification. In some cultures, a steam room or a sauna is considered a place of purity and reflection, where the outside world (i.e., your clothes) should be left outside. In some Scandinavian countries it’s common for entire families to sauna together in the nude.

What You Should Do Instead: Sitting on a folded towel is considered acceptable. If you’re too modest to appear naked, strip down, but wrap yourself in a towel.

Getting Lei'd Off

Where It’s Offensive: Hawaii.

What’s Offensive: Refusing or immediately removing a lei.

What You Should Do Instead: Leis in the Hawaiian Islands aren’t just pretty floral necklaces that you get when you check into your hotel or show up at a luau. They’re a centuries-old cultural symbol of welcome, friendship, and appreciation. Never refuse a lei — it’s considered highly disrespectful — or whip it off in the giver’s presence. If you’re allergic to the flowers, explain so, but offer to put it in some place of honor, say in the center of the table, or on a statue. Note that closed leis should be worn not hanging from the neck, but over the shoulder, with half draped down your chest and the other half down your back.

Looking Them in the Eye … or Not

Where It’s Offensive: Korea, Japan, Germany.

What’s Offensive: For Americans, not making direct eye contact can be considered rude, indifferent, or weak, but be careful how long you hold someone’s gaze in other countries. In some Asian nations, prolonged eye contact will make a local uncomfortable, so don’t be offended if you’re negotiating a deal with someone who won’t look you straight in the eye. If toasting with friends in a German beer hall, your eyes had better meet theirs — if they don’t, a German superstition says you’re both in for seven years of bad luck in the bedroom.

What You Should Do Instead: Avoid constant staring and follow the behavior of your host — and by all means, look those Germans straight on.

Drinking Alcohol the Wrong Way

Where It’s Offensive: Latin America, France, Korea, Russia.

What’s Offensive: Every culture has different traditions when it comes to drinking etiquette. Fail to consume a vodka shot in one gulp in Russia, and your host will not be impressed. Refill your own wine glass in France without offering more to the rest of the table, and you’ve made a faux pas. In Korea, women can pour only men’s drinks — not other women’s — and if you want a refill, you need to drain your glass. And if you’re in Latin America, never pour with your left hand — that’s bad luck.

What You Should Do Instead: Until you’re culturally fluent, leave it to your pals to pour.

Blowing Your Nose

Where It’s Offensive: Japan, China, Saudi Arabia, France.

What’s Offensive: Some cultures find it disgusting to blow your nose in public — especially at the table. The Japanese and Chinese are also repelled by the idea of a handkerchief. As Mark McCrum points out in his book Going Dutch in Beijing, the Japanese word hanakuso unpleasantly means nose waste.

What You Should Do Instead: If traveling through Eastern and Asian countries, leave the hankies at home and opt for disposable tissues instead. In France as well as in Eastern countries, if you’re dining and need to clear your nasal passages, excuse yourself and head to the restroom. Worst-case scenario: make an exaggerated effort to steer away from the table. Let’s hope you don’t have a cold.

Removing Your Shoes…or Not

Where It’s Offensive: Hawaii, the South Pacific, Korea, China, Thailand.

What’s Offensive: Take off your shoes when arriving at the door of a London dinner party and the hostess will find you uncivilized, but fail to remove your shoes before entering a home in Asia, Hawaii, or the Pacific Islands and you’ll be considered disrespectful. Not only does shoe removal very practically keeps sand and dirt out of the house, it’s a sign of leaving the outside world behind.

What You Should Do Instead: If you see a row of shoes at the door, start undoing your laces. If not, keep the shoes on.

Talking Over Dinner

Where It’s Offensive: Africa, Japan, Thailand, China, Finland.

What’s Offensive: In some countries, like China, Japan, and some African nations, the food’s the thing, so don’t start chatting about your day’s adventures while everyone else is digging into dinner. You’ll likely be met with silence—not because your group is unfriendly, but because mealtimes are for eating, not talking. Also avoid conversations in places a country might consider sacred or reflective—churches in Europe, temples in Thailand, and saunas in Finland.

What You Should Do Instead: Keep quiet!

Road Rage

Where It’s Offensive: Hawaii, Russia, France, Italy, around the globe.

What’s Offensive: Honk on Molokai or fail to pay a police officer a fine, a.k.a. bribe, on the spot when you’re stopped for speeding in Russia, and you’ll risk everything from scorn to prison time. Remember, too, that hand gestures have different meanings in other countries — a simple “thumbs-up” is interpreted as an “up yours“ in parts of the Middle East.

What You Should Do Instead: When driving abroad, make sure you have an international driver’s license; never, ever practice road rage; and keep your hands on the wheel.
