First Snow

At our back garden..I took it this morning as soon as i woke up
Hello again my blogger friends, I'm a bit inspired of blogging at the moment so here I am.lol..How time flies, it seems like yesterday when I came here in England. Or should I say since I had my last Christmas back in the Philippines. And now Christmas is here again. It's getting closer and I can see it with all the colourful Christmas lights, big Christmas trees and lots of Christmas sale in the high street and malls all over the country. Last weekend bunny and I started our christmas shopping, looked for our Christmas gifts at dockside in Medway near my SIL's place. And oh dear, it was extremely cold. Frost had started and I saw how the fields turned white as we were driving to my SIL's place. And then it gets colder and colder each day until I had my first snow experienced last Sunday. They said for 17 years it's just the only time it snowed in November. They had a horrible winter last year and wasn't expecting this early snow really. But yeah it was quite an excitement to me to see and experienced snow!haha..It's every body's dream from a hot weather country. And today we have more snow, a proper snow I guess cos what I saw on Sunday was just a very quick one. Yet it's not good somehow in the roads, or for travelling. A lot of classes were suspended cos of the heavy snow and bunny and I can't book watching Harry Potter cos of the bad weather. Not good to travel at night. Oh well, I am enjoying watching it in the window, but not enjoying the coldness it brings at all.hehe..I am looking of playing under the snow though, making snow ball and snow man and a great photo under the snow! =)

Thorntons chocolate Selection


As I've said in my profile I certainly oh so love chocolates! I can eat it any time of day, eat it with something, or munch it all alone.hehe..I love milk chocolates, with nuts but not raisins. I don't like it mixed with other flavours as well just like chocolate with strawberry or any fruity flavour. PIL gave bunny and I this box of Thorntons chocolate selection when they got home from their holiday. It's a selection of milk, dark and white chocolates. Flavours are:
  • Coconut Paradise- a sweet coconut centre with lightly toasted coconut pieces coated in milk chocolates
  • Lemon Parfait- real zesty lemon folded with double cream, wrapped in smooth with chocolate
  • Country Caramel- a deliciously chewy caramel smothered in milk chocolate
  • Almond Marzipan- soft almond marzipan smothered in dark chocolates
  • Chocolate Truffle- a rich smooth chocolate truffle with a hint of vanilla smothered in white chocolate
  • Creamy Fudge- a lightly whipped creamy fudge lavishly covered in milk chocolate
  • Hazelnut Praline- wonderfully smooth hazelnut praline with roasted chopped hazelnuts and almonds covered in white chocolates
  • Layered Chocolate Classic- Tripple chocolate temptation with this layered combination of our smooth milk,white and dark chocolate
  • Creamy Coffee- a coffee-infused double cream soft truffle coated in dark chocolate
  • Honeycomb Crunch- velvety milk chocolate bursting with crispy honeycomb and sugar-roasted hazelnut and croquant
  • Turkish Delight- delicately fragrant rose flavour Turkish Delight drenched in dark chocolate
  • Strawberry Velvet- soft strawberry and double cream fondant coated in milk chocolate
I like the Layered Chocolate classic and the Hazelnut praline. How about you?
So what do you think sounds the best flavour?Can you point some flavours in the box?

I'm Back!

haaay it's been a long time of absence I had in blogging world. Things weren't that busy but I I found it too busy being bored and frustrate myself for some nonsense things! Oh yeah the days of my absence here weren't productive at all! I isolated myself here for quite long and now I feel the need to share to you why I wasn't been active here lately. Was just a bit depressed with things which I felt seems to be so slow moving. I was frustrated with uncertainties of job hunting and sudden melancholy of being away from home. Oh dear I nearly broke down, you know just like everything seemed so hard for me here and I thought i wouldn't survive here. So I thought must be good for me to come back to the Philippines yet on the other hand I don't want to since that means I'll leave my bunny here and I can't imagine that life at all. So one day I chatted to my sister and I just suddenly cried so much in front of her saying, I could not go on anymore because I miss them. And it feels like every bit of things or memories I've missed being with them gets harder everyday. And I said I guess I'll just be better to go back in the Philippines. And my sister said, yes they missed me too so bad but she said this is my life now, this is where I need to be, with the man I love. And she said she understands what I felt but she said they wouldn't be happy as well if I leave my bunny here and stay with them rather, because she said my life is with my bunny now. she said I just need to be patient and everything will fall into place. I know God has plans for me and now I want to know him better so I decided to join the Christianity Explored in out church. It's a 10 weeks course with regards to christian faith and knowing God more. Because at the moment I need a strong guidance, strength and wisdom to overcome my frustrations and depressions. I'm back now and I'm ready to share with you my walk with life =)

Happy Birthday Grandpa Smith!

Today is another special day. It's grandpa Stanley's (MIL's father) 93rd birthday! As usual we do visit him and do his shopping every Friday, but today we have another special reason to visit him.So this morning MIL,FIL and I went to his house (FIL took day off, bunny's working so he's not with us) to get his shopping lists and of course to greet him and give him birthday cards. The first thing I noticed as I got in his lounge were a number of birthday cards in his window seal. Whew, that means loads loved grandpa isn't it? Yeah he's really nice and I am really fond of him and loved him even just I knew him just quite a while. He's very generous to us and very thoughtful. He's got a hearing problem though, he stays alone in his house that's why sometimes I hate to visit him because I hate to leave him as well. I don't know but it breaks my heart to think he's just alone in his house. He's just always sitting in his lounge watching TV and he said he's just cheered when someone visits him but he gets lonely when they leave. If I could just drive I will visit him everyday. MIL does it regularly though, it's just hard here cos every one's busy unlike in our country, you have all your time! Anyways I kissed and greeted and handed our card for him. Glad to say he liked it very much, he said it is so special.hehe.. thanks grandpa! Tomorrow we are going to celebrate his birthday as what they always do here every year. Family gather together here at PIL's house, so we are quite busy today preparing and so as tomorrow. I cooked leche flan but how it came out doesn't look promising to me.lol. I'll share the photos of the happy moment sometime here. Happy Birthday Grandpa, I hope and pray that you will enjoy your celebration tomorrow, and that I am so thankful to God I've got the privileged of  knowing you. James and I love you so very much!

"Magkaribal" keeps Me Busy

Because I still can't find a work yet, I am spending most of my times at home. I am just busy every Tuesdays and Fridays when we do shopping, weekends (bunny keeps me busy!hehe) and every other Wednesday cos of the Ladies group I am joining in church. I don't do a lot in the house really, everything is  just quite handy. So after I've done my morning routine the next I do is to turn on the computer. Yes "Dellio" our PC (cos it's a DELL product) has been my company all day when bunny is at work. Dellio makes me reach the unreachable,unlimited,7 days a week. And the best thing he does is to cheer me when I'm homesick by connecting me to my family through "Skype". He does a lot for me that's why I love him so much. hehe..And last time when I spoke online to my sister she mentioned one of the Filipino soap opera "Magkaribal". She said it it's coming to an end this week and I remember this cos I knew it was about to be shown in ABS in June this year. The actresses and actors are interesting as well so I asked Dellio to find it for me and hoorah! he found for me. I have few British Tv shows favourites, most of them are reality but there's one soap MIL and I are following at lunchtime, "Heartbeat". It's a police drama series set in 1970's in the county of Yorkshire. It's nice and I've been familiar with the actors and actresses but iba pa rin yong Filipino drama shows. So this week I seldom come out of our room cos of this "Magkaribal". Gretchen Baretto and Bea Alonzo. I'll show you the video of the 1st episode;



Very inspiring yong story, better watch it! =)

I Wanna Grow Old with You

I'm the type of girl that hates to assume too much in a relationship. I don't know but I don't  like or want to play too important in a persons life or he to me. Just like talking about the future together with a boyfriend, how many or what gender of kids you like, or even just think of walking in the aisle with him! Duh! that' just too much for me! hehe..I don't know but I feel like for me if I talk to him about it he'll just think I'm that eager or I love him that much or kung baga patay na patay ako sa kanya! (toink!)Oh sya oo na ma Pride chicken na ako!hehe..In fairness red mah lips but the last thing I want a guy to think eh yong patay na patay ako sa kanya!N.E.V.E.R! But?when my bunny came along, kinain nya lahat ng pride ko!Ako pa atangpropose sa mokong na to, kasi ang TORPE, and hina ng radar!haha. .Anyways serious ha, my bunny made me think of me walking in the aisle which I never thought in my entire life. Feeling ko ang dyahe, tsaka isang lang malaking ka ek-ekan! But everything changed when I met James, even though we haven't meet in person yet that time I already saw myself with him. And lahat yun has been cleared when he came to the Philippines last May 2009 and met me in person. And by then we started to plan our future together. We never gave up even though we had loads of  failures on our way to the journey. January 2010, we applied for my fiancee visa and alas! I was approved in 3 weeks! But before I was approved I was so apprehensive cos bunny set our wedding date already, and I was so pessimistic with the visa. And I said to him "what if I'll be denied again, what shall we do?" and this was his answer " I'll come back in the Philippines  I'll find work there, and live there with you. And no matter what happen by hook or by crook I will marry you this year,whether it'll be in the UK or there in the Philippines!" Whew! those were the words that kept me going and I clung on to.God knew how genuine we were so He heard our prayer and now we are half way to the future we both planned. Get married here in the UK, finally met his family, get a job (which I'm still not lucky to have), have our own place to call home (working on it),have little Roxxy and little James in God's good time and growing old together. A glimpse of our future that is worth fighting for.

Bizarre Looking Shop

Every time I went to town I always passed by in this bizarre structure of Kings English shop. It looks like it's gonna fall down any minute. I don't know if they really built it this way or forces of nature had anything to do with this.Shops here are quite different in our country, what we have there are very typical modern establishment as I am to describe it. But here in England their local shops are very interesting. Built in stone, some looks very old and were built many years ago. A lot of  foreign visitors are caught by this bizarre structure and always gets photo of it when they get passed. Another most picturesque shop in Canterbury town is the Hotel Chocolat. Quite old as well and of course different kinds of chocolates are to be found inside.Yum! There's another old stone shop next to Kings English shop if your going left, I'll take a photo of it when I remember.

For more bizarre yet wonderful world, visit My World Tuesday. Don't forget to leave some thoughtful thoughts!

Harry Potter Book Collection

Magic spells, brooms, quidditch, potions, the moving portraits, moaning Myrtle, headless Nick, Snape, Ron, Hermione, Slytherin, Gryffindor, You know Who? and of course the famous Albus Dumbledore! And oh how could I forget the boy who lives "Harry Potter". Yes I'm one of Harry Potter fan, not so much before until my bunny gave me the Harry Potter book collection last year.

And because I love reading and not so much to do back home, I was able to read all the 7 books. 


And of course watched all six movie sequel. Actually watched it many times, but it's not as exciting as when you read it. I mean, in movies they tend to summarised what had happened whilst in the book you will know everything and will be able to understand and connect the story more. And because the last sequel "Deathly Hallows Part 1" will be releasing soon, I decided to read again and refresh my mind of what had happened, before we watched the movie. Bunny promised me we'll watch it in cinema. Will you watch it too?
