Pinay Mommy Online's Thanksgiving Giveaways

Pinay Mommy Online is hosting her Thanksgiving giveaways with big cash prizes at stake. Mind you, I've been joining lots of Giveaway Contest but haven't been awarded yet lol!... well, who knows this would be my FIRST TIME ;)

The mechanics is very simple. Just write about the things that you are thankful for. Be it for last year or at present times. See? To give you that extra urge to really take part on this contest the prizes are the following: 

Oops, I know how excited you are to join but allow me first to share with you all the tings that I am grateful for. 

I forgot when did I got my domain (age factor?) but just in case I won, it would be great to have my blog hosted and undergo a total makeover! weee.. so exciting indeed! 

And so, what are those things that I would be thankful for? 

♥First, I thank God that I reached the age of 29 and still counting ;)
♥Second, I thank God for the big event that will change my life or shall I say lead me to another step of challenges which will be happening soon! (Sshh, I am getting married ;)
♥Third, I thank God's unfailing love and faithfulness. I know I have lots of shortcomings and failures but yet His love is so overwhelming.
♥Fourth, I thank God for giving me a mentor, boss and real friend in the person of my two bosses (Sir Cesar and Sir Melo). I am thankful to God for using them as an instrument in opening great opportunities for me.
♥Fifth, I thank God not only for my own family, but for my external families as well as my Lighthouse Iponan whose love and encouragement is undeniable.
♥Sixth, I thank God for God's provision that has yet to come in preparation for my Big Day!

God has been so good to me that amidst tears and well, sometimes frustrations, He always lifted me up.

In totality, I thank God for everything!

That's it!

And of course Pinay Mommy Online's Thanksgiving Giveaways was made possible with the help of her generous sponsors:

Are You Not Threatened By The Global Warming?

This morning, my phone alarms at 5:30 but I noticed that it is yet too dark to wake up. So I just simply turned it off and went back to sleep. When I wake up, it is already 6:30 but still it seems like much earlier than the actual time. I was left with no other choice than to get up to prepare for work. After taking a bath I made a cup of coffee and a bread then went off for work. The rain shower compelled me to take a tricycle from my place to MetroBank which is just few meters from the school.

The climate now is indeed unpredictable. Such climate change brought noted disasters on some areas not only here in the Philippines but on other part of the world. The very evident of it is the global warming which causes colder region to experience El Niño and the tropical region with La Niña. Call it human factor but it is still a fact that human have greater contributions in the sudden change of the climate. We cannot deny it that unconsciously we became part of the reasons why we experienced such dilemma. And yet we are the first to complain.

Some people have learned their lessons while others are still unmindful of what has been happening around him. Protecting our Mother Nature has become a slogan anymore. Allow me to quote a particular comment posted by a certain fellow named  "Curt" two years ago on the issue about Climate Change and I quote: 

"I see this events just as a 'political spin' or 'marketing spin' of how to buy more time for not acting and not taking any responsibility, at all. Sadly, very many people are going to die and suffer a lot, before there are going to be greater changes about this topic, if ever. Every single week new coal power plants are opening all over the planet, millions of new cars are sold, thousands and thousands of new factories are opening in developing countries, huge forests are cut, etc. President George W.Bush is not supporting, President Vladimir Putin is not supporting, China and India are not supporting, Gordon Brown is not supporting, etc. 
Very sad, but true."

Indeed, very sad, IF true.

There might be some actions taken but do you think we can still really save Mother Earth from its ultimate destruction? Let's include that in our prayers.

Establishing An Accessible Communication

It is imperative for any businesses whether local or international to establish a strong relationship to their prospective consumers/ customers or clients. One way of doing so is by having an easy access of communication considering that our technology is on rapid growth as well as the competition. The business owner should see to it that their line of communication is indeed accessible and affordable to the public. In choosing a telephone line, one must consider that it is not hard to remember especially for those company that have just started. Just like in UK, they are using the prefix  0844 Numbers wherein the call is in local rate no matter where they are in UK.

Need To Host Kids Themed Party?

If you are planning to host a kids party for your kids for his special day or any occasions, try the expertise of the dna kids themed parties. They can surely add excitement to the party plus you can get rid of all the mess. Pick the theme that you want and let them run the show! Your kids will surely be grateful to you. 

Bed Buddies

I have a lot of bed buddies that I really find so cute. These are my stuffed toys collections. I love to hug them, play with them, unmindful of my age lol! But I really find them so cute. In fact I cannot just go to sleep without hugging all of them and sometimes talking to them asking them how there day have been. Well, I am pretty sure that it's not only me who got the same weird-for-my age experience. How about you, do you have stuffed toys collections? I suggest you'll try different bears collection from Steiff. I am sure you will love them as well.

So Much More Than Hot Indulgence

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.

How do you add sizzle to your pizza? It is indeed much better that you will not settle for just "red chili hot" but rather, why not try to complement your pizza with "so much more than hot" sauce? Only TABASCO® Original Red can give you that hot experience. What makes TABASCO® Original Red unique is that the combination of salt, red pepper and vinegar went through 3- year aging process. It does not add their own specific flavor to your food but rather it enhances the flavor of your food. Come to think of it, the taste of your pepperoni pizza will truly be enhanced to your great delight! My best friend can attest to that since her husband can't get enough with  hot sauce indulgence. Ever since they were using TABASCO® Original Red, her husband keep coming back for more. If you haven't tried it yet, you better buy one right now and see for yourself. And I bet, today would be a perfect timing considering that it's football season and Super Bowl is just around the corner, why not create a menu to be shared with while watching such exciting game. If you cannot think of any menu, try to have the Game-Day Party Menu for your convenience. But if your husband prefer to have pizza for the whole duration of the game then try to learn more about Pizza Perfected. You could never go wrong with it!

The Medicine Called Fluimucil®

I hate to take medicine. But this morning I was left with no choice but to buy a medicine for cough. I prefer liquid expectorant than capsules or tablets but my Boss introduced to me the Fluimucil® 600 mg. It was my first time to take the said medicine. Fluimucil® 600mg should be dissolved in water of at least 250ml. One reason why I hate to take medicine is that I have the tendency to throw up as its adverse effect. And indeed, I throw up which caused my body to feel really really weak. I research about the medicine. What I read about its side effect was this: The oral intake of the product, may, occasionally be followed by nausea and vomiting, and in rare cases by hypersensitivity reactions such as urticaria and bronchospasm. Now I know why I breathed heavily. I bought only two sachets but I don't feel like taking it anymore...

GT: Final Resolution

I cannot clearly made up my mind as to what should be my final resolution. The truth is, I am not just good in keeping any of those. As far as my memory is concerned, I stop making any resolutions, instead, I just simply thought of doing this and that for a change. I just don't want to add any pressure to my already pressured life (lol!).

I know my shortcomings. I can really assess myself well. I know myself better than others did. I know when to stop those bad habits and I know when to lie low on things that are overwhelming me. I admit that I cannot simply rely on to myself if I really want to make a paradigm shift of the way I think, say and do. My friends used to describe me as "stubborn". Yes, I am stubborn in the sense that I go for what I believe is right for me (though not all is really right for me). I insist on the things that I want regardless of any objections. But don't get me wrong about this. I can be easily influenced by others decision and opinion, that is one of my pitfalls. And that is exactly one of the main reasons why I want to think independently as much as possible, relying to myself for whatever is good and right for me. Well, I am not saying that my door is close to others opinion. I can listen to them but I don't want to rely much on them. However, if after weighing things out, they seems sound practical and logical, I am very much open to take it wholeheartedly.

Perhaps the most important thing that I should do right now is to ask for God's guidance that I may have the right discernment on things that I will be dealing everyday. ;)

By the way, since our host is planning to change the GT button, I made a GT badge that needs her approval... How about you? How do you find the badge below? Post your comment so that I will know...

Thank you and God bless!

WFW: Hebrews 2: 1

Yes indeed, sometimes the reason why people became disoriented and confronted in a chaotic situation was that they easily believe on "hearsays". We should be keen enough in filtering all the things that we hear. Even if the one telling it claimed his statements to be a fact, we must still search for the truth. People are bound to commit a mistakes. We must receive wisdom and discernment from God in believing one's story or statement.

 I do believe that one reason why there are so many religious affiliations/denominations nowadays was because people believe on the traditions they have grown up with. They merely believe on the concepts and instructions given by their elders without taking time to search for its credibility. As a result, they acquire the kind of faith that was apart from the teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Like what Hebrews 2:1 says, we must pay the most careful attention, therefore to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. 

Always refer to our Life's Manual which is the Bible. As we all knew, the Bible has the Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.

God bless everyone!

Quenching Your Thirst...

the Watered Soul

There comes a time in our life where we seek for something we do not know... 
We are totally confused and disoriented. We felt some emptiness within us. Spiritually, we are totally dried up. It happens to me not only once but oftentimes. I admit, I became too complacent that I tend to forget to feed my soul with His Words...

If I will not go to church, I will never hear nor read a passages from the Bible. Sometimes I felt guilty also because going to church becomes a routine itinerary. But I am amazed of how God reminded me. He reminded me in the middle of my busyness... or between the lines that I read from the blog, from my Our Daily Journey devotional pocket book and from the wall posts of my friends on their Facebook. He blatantly reminded me of His existence. I cannot shun Him out of my life no matter what. I can feel how He holds me tight so that I cannot let go of Him anymore. 

I downloaded a bible so that I can read it with just a double-click from my mouse. Indeed, God's presence is inevitable... We cannot run away from Him.

I am so glad for those people who helps me along the way... Who blessed me with their words of wisdom and inspiration...

I invite you all to check Wanda's site to refresh your soul... just click the badge above.... Quench your thirst with the watered soul.

God bless.

Are You Hooked To Bingo Games?

If I am in the mall, I just can't get rid of the Bingo announcer giving numbers to the players. I wonder how Bingo was being played. I am wondering as well why there are so many people playing such addicting games. Then I just learned that Bingo can be played via online as well. There are many bingo sites who offers the same fun as the actual play site. Well, I still do not want to learn this game fearing that I might get hooked into it like others did if I will do so.

Need Efficient Cable Management?

Clutters are common everywhere especially in school offices and laboratories  where office supplies and equipments were piled up or stock. Just like in our computer laboratory, if not because of efficient  cable management adopted by our technician, everything will be a mess. If you experienced the same situation, take time to consider MCL Data Solutions. They can really help you in getting rid of all computer laboratory mess.

Mobile Phone Recycling

Have you heard about mobile phone recycling? If you want to dispose your phone without giving harm to our Mother Earth, be practical by selling it with RPC Recycle. They will pay you a reasonable price for your specific phone brand and model. Check them on Facebook.

TCP: Eat Pray Love

I haven't seen this movie yet but I am looking forward to squeeze this on my Topsy-turvy schedule ;)) By merely reading the following review, you will surely love to watch this if you haven't done so.... Take time to read the movie review:

More Than Stylish...

The Stylish Blogger Award continues as Joahna of What's Inside Joahna's Heart gave it to me. First was yesterday from Ate Grace of Gracia Fashionista. I was indeed flattered that finally my blog was noticed by some respectable bloggers. Not only that, I got a comment from The Story Teller Kim who justified that I deserve for such award.

Yesterday, I shared 7 things about me, as one of the rules in having this award, I made to mention that I still have a lot of things to say about myself. I guess, this is the chance that I will tell more about myself, specifically, the 7 things that I disliked the most... (I refrain from using the word "hate" anymore. I might offended somebody)

7 Things I Disliked The Most
  1. I dislike people who smoke. They don't care about themselves.
  2. I dislike (hate is the right word, I guess) unfaithful partner, it reminds me of somebody supposedly close to me.
  3. I dislike the taste of durian fruit (sorry Davaoeños).
  4. I dislike rap music as well as heavy metal.
  5. I dislike people who will just use you for their own good/benefit and forget about you when they already achieved everything they want out of using you.
  6. I dislike Calculus subject. (I never took this when I was in College ;)
  7. I dislike pretentious, unreal, insensitive and over-confident people.
But of course, I respect the opinion of others who feel the contrary of what I disliked the most. We are unique and different in so many ways. Peace....

And now, I will pass on this award to Kikamz of Just About Anything, Iris of Grace Alone and Wanda of The Watered Soul
These women are indeed not only a stylish blogger but a good epitome of grace, faith and inspiration.

The next Stylish Blogger Award goes to...

It's been quite awhile that I haven't received any form of blogger award. The first one was the "A Blog with Substance Award" that was 10th of July last year...

Surprisingly, I received another one from the same person, this time it is "Stylish Blogger Award". Hmmm, I am happy for receiving such recognition. I just hope people really find my blog to be stylish and with substance.

I would like to extend my gratitude to Ate Grace of Gracia Fashionista.
Your thoughtfulness Ate Grace really mean a lot to me... 

This award was meant to be pass on to co-bloggers who deserves the same recognition. There are simple rules to follow. Just simply link back and thank the person who gave you this award. Then share 7 things about yourself.

And so here's mine:

  1. People used to call me Jackie though it was often misspelled as "Jacky".
  2. I am a teacher and an Executive Assistant at the same time to one of our VP in the school where I am teaching.
  3. I am inquisitive that people may find me annoying sometimes.
  4. I love mocha brown and pink.
  5. I love spaghetti,  french fries, pizza, and tapioca!
  6. I am addicted to Cityville.
  7. I am a certified blogger who speaks her mind and pour out her heart...
Well, I supposed to tell a lot of things about me but it was just limited to 7 so that was it...

And now, I am grateful to pass this award to Paula of Happy Thoughts, Ate Rhea of Life's Pen @ Work, and to Kayce of My Life and My Journey Online.

Well, those are just a few of the bloggers I've known whose blogs are really stylish and very informative!

Pass on!

Have You Experienced That "So Much More Than Hot" Sauce?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.

Who does not love pizza? I am pretty sure everyone loves to eat pizza! That is one of our favorites. My best friend in College used to treat me always for a pizza when she was still here. And just like anyone else, our favorite partner for pizza is red hot sauce. Believe me, when she joined with her husband at the United States, they shared the same craving for pizza but more hotter this time because they discovered TABASCO® Original Red to which my best friend really really love! In fact they can consumed one platter for just the two of them. She absolutely love preparing sunny side up with TABASCO® Original Red for their morning breakfast too. So much more than hot, that's what she likes about it. Actually, there are still other menu that they can have TABASCO® Original Red with. And for the upcoming football season, to which her hubby is a big fan, I should tell her that she can have so many options in surprising her hubby with the Game-Day Party Menu. the Game-Day Party Menu is easy to prepare and I am pretty sure her hubby will appreciate it that much especially if it is pizza. TABASCO® Original Red enhances the flavor because it bring the most out of your food with its ingredients which were combined and went through a 3-year aging process.

How about you? Do you love pizza as well? Learn more about Pizza Perfected which will make your partner or even the whole family crave for more! Make it possible with " So Much More Than Hot" TABASCO® Original Red Sauce.

How Do You Treat Diaper Rash?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.

The skin of the baby is very delicate. I should have known that because I have three nieces and one nephew whom I used to baby sit during their infant years. The most disturbing moment that the babies might encounter are during night time or wee hour in the morning when all they can feel is the heat of the diaper that was fastened around their waist.  My sister-in-laws always uses diapers during night time and as an effect, they  have trouble also in treating diaper rash. Good thing Boudreaux's Butt Paste was introduced in the market. Boudreaux's Butt Paste® was specifically formulated by a pharmacist with direction from a respected pediatrician to provide effective diaper rash care. Because of its effectiveness, it is highly recommended by pediatricians. Mommies and nannies will surely love this product because aside from its effectiveness, it is also very convenient to use. It has a pleasant scent with skin protectant and comes in flip top cap so it is travel handy. It comes in various packages for your convenience. . It also goes on and cleans off easily. Boudreaux's Butt Paste contains 16% Zinc Oxide and Peruvian Balsam which effectively treats diaper rash and soothes irritated skin. Gone were the days for the baby to experience such uncomfortable feelings. You are guaranteed that this product is indeed very effective because it was featured on famous TV shows which  includes Oprah Show, Tonight Show, and a lot more. If you haven't tried Boudreaux's Butt Paste before, it is now the right time to try the product and see for yourself how it really works. As for now, say goodbye to diaper rash and hello to a goodnight sleep for you and for your precious baby.
