♥ Cooked with Love ♥

One of the hard part of me living in England is when I crave for my native Filipino foods. I'm like a silly little kid sulking in the corner, pissed off with my husband cos I can't eat what I crave like KBL (kadyos, baboy, langka), Pinakbet, ginataang langka na may tuyo, nilaga, green mango with shrimp paste, bopis, sisig and more.Whew..slurp! I seem to crave for them lately and surely I could try to cook them but unfortunately there's not much choice for the ingredients!!! A pain in the A--!
I seem to miss my Mama more if I looked at the photos of my 24th birthday which I spent last year in the Philippines. So all the choice of  food was mine, cooked with love by my Mama *wink* Here are some yummy food photos to share:

A pose with the food *wink*

I can say that my Mama cooks best! *wink*

Sharing this as my Yummy Sunday entry! Happy week ahead! xx

Photo Canvass

Nowadays there are so many ways to keep record or preserve our photo memories. whatever occasions it might be, wedding, family moments, holidays, life celebrations or our snapshots in an ordinary day spending happy days with people we love. Picture is worth a thousand words they say.*smile*

 I chose and ordered this photo canvass of me and my sisters @ one of my sister's wedding. It was a good offer when we bought it as it was buy one get one free :) 

 And here's the 2nd photo we chose, our wedding photo. Which I'm sure would be hanged in our bedroom when we finally moved to our new house! *wink*

Want to turn your special wedding photo into canvass, or make a scrap book, photo book, or make a place mats and coasters with your own photo? Click here. Would be a great Valentines present for your special someone..*wink*

♥ Happy and Blesses Sunday ♥

Get up and See the World!

Before the previous year ended, 2012 was looking really positive and great for me. I had so much things in mind that I said would keep me busy for the year. We have our house to work on to be our home. I said I wanted to go back to college and be trained as a nurse. My husband's cousin's wedding this spring. Might start my NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) training at work soon. Will get my Indefinite Leave to remain visa this August. And might start a driving lesson if possible. Loads and loads to look forward to.
But it seemed like the optimistic outlook has shattered. I don't know why, but the interesting life I have and will have here in England has suddenly become black and white. I want to go back to my country soon...that's my! I know I am being unfair to my husband acting like this. He said I am asking too much, I am asking to be away from him :( . So sweet, parang si Basha and Popoy..hehe.
But seriously I really think I should stop acting like this, so nega! I'll try not to, starting today I'm gonna get up and see the world. I have a lot to live to and be interested of. I'm sorry hunny, I don't really mean it when I said my life is so bring here and I am bored of you...Cos I am not and you're the only reason why I chose to live here. I can be anywhere in the world as long as you're with me :)
Sorry Lord for being so weak. I think I just really have to spend more time with you and trust you in everything. Please give me courage to face the new year positively, to lean on you more and trust not only in my own understanding. To be grateful and appreciative in things big and small. Thank you Lord a lot for the love and grace :) For all the person that loves me and I love. Thank you for giving me a WONDERFUL husband! I love him dearly :)

" I love you, O Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold."
 ESV Psalm 18:1-2

Puma Shirts for Kids

Before I retire tonight let me first post my first entry for the new meme Color Connection hosted by Ate Rose , Pink Saturday and Pink Friday meme.

These Puma shirts were given to my niece and nephews by my husband and I when we sent a parcel to the Philippines last year.

We chose different colours for each of them and as what colour they would like. But unfortunately the t-shirts are all too big for them. And so they ended up to be worn by the big ones! :(

Happy Weekend! xx

Diagnosis; Tension Headache/ Stress Headache

It's been a couple of weeks now that I am having headaches every day. Visited the GP twice already. On my first check up, the doctor said my headache was due to sinusitis as people commonly have it here this time of year. I was prescribed with nasal spray (to be sprayed 2x daily in both nostrils) and pain reliever (Cocodamol 15mg codeine and 500 mg paracetamol). I thought the medications seemed promising, but after all, the pain reliever wasn't very good. I mean the side effect..makes me sleepy, nauseated and worst constipated for days. So I stopped it and taking it doesn't seem to cure my headache anyway. Been off sick from work for days, I always feel tired, sleepy and terrible headaches starts in the middle of the day throughout. If I haven't had my period, I would say I am pregnant. But nuh, I am not so I had to visit the GP again. For the 2nd time the GP suggested I have to have an eye test as headaches still persist and it's doesn't seem to be sinusitis.
And so right away I booked an appointment for an eyes test at Boots pharmacy. All seemed very well as I got a £10.00 eye test voucher from them so I only have to pay £10 instead of £20, great saving!*wink* I had the appointment this morning and still all is well, nothing is wrong with my vision. The optometrist suggested that I have to go back to my GP AGAIN as she reckon it's a TENSION headache. In short I am stressed :( and so for the final test I have to book a blood test (Fasting Blood Count) appointment in the hospital. hopefully I could do it next week before coming back to work. Why I am stress? For what reasons? I tell you next time :(

A Curly Hair or a Short Hair Cut?

In my previous post I mentioned about my "Hair Problems" which I'm hoping to solve soon. But in case the hair products won't work, I would be incline to use the other option..HAIRCUT! (sulk). Pretty tough for the hair I've cared for more than a year but I am really serious to get rid of this split ends. And mind you if I cut my hair, I want it real short..*wink* (bit worrying how I will look like though..)
Oh well I don't really have to cut my hair for me to get rid of this split ends, do I? I have another option, perm or curl my hair! How is it for a plan? *wink* I looked at prices though and mind you it is expensive..hmmmp! I told my hunny and he said yes.. but I'm still concern of price ,well anyway lets see..

By the way out of curiosity how will I look like if ever I curl or cut my hair real short, I used Imikimi and My Theme photo editor and here's the result


Charan! Nyahaha...What do you think? In case I choose this option, will I look better with curly hair or short hair cut?  Would love to see your comment about this..*wink* ♥♥

Hair Problem

Dry hair, frizzy hair, brittle hair, hair loss, split ends, etc..such a pain in the *s*! (excuse me for my language..been censored anyway..toink!) Anyway I'm sure these hair problems are very much familiar with most women. Over styling..basically the main reason, right? I've been bombarded by these problems since I started to style my hair in order to be in with fashion. I relaxed my hair, permed it, colour, this and that and so then I got all these problems. Every time I hover the floor, by then I know the hover won't function well after that, as it has been blocked by my hairs. I don't have cancer but seems I have due to these hair fall that not just blocked our hover but also our shower waste.haist... Tried all sorts of shampoo, hair fall control etc..not working.
Cut my hair really short after our wedding more than a year ago as the hair spray that's been used for styling my hair damaged it. Now I'm back to the same problem, split ends! I hate it! I guess this time it's the hair dryer that damaged it.I used hair dryer everyday so that must be it. I found these Andrew Barton hair products;
Twice a week conditioner. Used it like the normal conditioner and leave for 3 minutes. Basically you can relax in the bath for a bit while you leave it to soak *wink*. Used it once and it seems really good, makes your hair really smooth and shiny.

Live in conditioner. Split ends treatment just as what I'm looking for. How to use? Shake to activate then spray evenly to towel dried hair. Spray more or focus the application on the dry sensitive split ends. I've used it 2-3x and it seems ok, can't tell you much of how good it works as I haven't used it long enough. I think I've used it in a wrong way. lol..Will try to use it properly tomorrow *wink*. 

Hopefully these products will restore my hair cos if not, I'll be inclined to cut my hair really short to get away with it. If these products work I would be able to keep my long hair (which my hunny likes). How about you?Do you have the same hair problem as mine? You might want to try these products or have you tried these products? Feel free to share it with me, would be very much appreciated :). Cheers! xx
