My Spring Rolls


November 24, 2012

I cooked Spring Rolls during Thanksgiving and I am glad they liked them. Charles ate the Spring Rolls for the first time and never noticed the vegetables inside which is funny. I guess he was just too hungry waiting to eat our Thanksgiving Turkey.

You Can Rent Knee Walker


November 20, 2012

I have never imagined you can rent knee walker (scooter) from roll about company. This type of knee walker is easy to maneuver and will help you maneuver after surgery. I told Doug about this and of course he has seen them in use. One of the coaches at his school tore his Achilles tendon last year and used a roll about to still coach and to get around school. They are much easier to use then crutches for sure.

I Believed About Santa Claus

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is just two days away and we are looking forward to seeing my husband’s family. I already packed our clothes and we are going to drive down to Kansas City tomorrow. Aside from Thanksgiving I am looking forward to go shopping, watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and hopefully to see Santa Claus though Charles is not a big fan of Santa. Doug and I keep on asking Charles about going to see Santa and Charles will always say, “I don’t want to see Santa, I don‘t“. When I was a kid I believed about Santa Claus and our mother will always tell us to hang up our socks outside the window on Christmas Eve. As Santa Claus will come to our house and give us candies and money though we need to go to sleep early at night. 

On Christmas Day we always get up early in the morning as we are excited to see what’s inside our socks and we are happy when there was candies and money inside. Oh well, I am kind of tired today. Been doing laundry and cleaned some stuff in the living room. Someone from Enviropest is going to come here to tomorrow to spray the house. I also went to A’Chau Oriental Market and got a bag of rice and spring rolls wrapper that I am going to use on Thanksgiving. Yes I am going to make spring rolls so my husband’s family can eat it. Spring rolls is a type of food in the Philippines that we used to eat occasionally.

Audition Coach

As a mother to a 4 year old son, Charles I really want what’s the best for him. Giving our kids the tools that they need to succeed in life is the greatest thing that every parent could ever give to their child. My husband Doug and I are not very pushy when it comes to our son and we want him to choose on the things that he really likes to do. Though I would love for him to enroll in things like singing and dancing classes as I know he likes those kinds of activities. 

I am interested about toronto singing auditions as a great step for Charles to show of his talents. Audition Coach provides coaching services to any person who are interested in joining the music industry. Doug though a wrestling and football coach too fully supports Charles in whatever he likes to do. Having a professional organization can really help make the contacts that are needed for success in the entertainment field.

Charles Wants A Hair Cut


November 18, 2012

I had a very tiring day today. We shopped at Pinnacle Hills Promenade Mall and got some great clothes for the three of us. When I was browsing on kids clothes at Dillard’s the clerk came to us and asked how we are doing. She seemed nice and looked like an Asian so I asked her if she’s from the Philippines. Well, she’s Asian from Thailand and we exchanged our phone numbers and plan to go outside when she’s not working at Dillard’s. I would love to go out sometime have a drink or tea and my favorite thing to do which is shopping with a friend. Shopping with Charles doesn’t go so well as he only wants to go up and down the escalator at Dillard’s. 

After Doug watched his movie we shopped again and had his hair cut at Great Clips. When Doug was about to sit on his chair Charles wants to have his hair cut so we had his hair cut even though he had just had his hair cut a few days ago. And Charles did so great during his hair cut and we are very proud of him. While Doug and I had a conversation of what restaurant we are going to eat Charles picked Ginghis Grill as it was beside Great Clips. Though we both like Copeland’s but sometimes Charles gets to pick which restaurant he likes to eat.

Home Karaoke System


November 16, 2012

My husband’s good friend Greg is getting married to a Filipina and I am wondering whether they will need a home karaoke system. Karaoke is big part of Filipino culture as a way of entertainment with family and friends. I’m sure she will need this type of karaoke system as entertainment especially because she’s new here in the United States of America. Hopefully it will help her not to get homesick for the Philippines.

Easy To Cook Breakfast


My eyes are hurting today and I don't feel like doing anything though I managed to cook my breakfast. These are the types of foods that I can cook easily in the morning when I feel like I'm lazy. So I had sunny side-up egg and hotdogs. Charles is not a big fan of these foods for breakfast so he only likes to eat cereal.

Patagonia Baggies Shorts


November 15, 2012

Christmas is just around the corner and I have been browsing on the web looking for the perfect Christmas presents for my husband. I really like the black rockwall, and red delicious patagonia baggies shorts. These are the types of shorts that I can see my husband wearing. I know I should be buying long pants but my husband loves to wear shorts year round even in cold weather.

At Pinnacle Hills Promenade


We just got back home from getting our Krispy Kreme doughnuts and I told Doug to drive  around Pinnacle Hills Promenade. I do really like the Christmas decorations around Pinnacle Hills Promenade. Too bad, I was wearing my pajama and house slippers so we didn’t get out from the car and do some shopping. Though this Saturday, I have decided Charles and I will go shopping when Doug is watching the new Abraham Lincoln movie. We cannot watch a movie with Charles because he doesn’t want to sit still and wants to run around the theater.

Busy Weekend


November 14, 2012

It is going to be a busy weekend as my husband is going to have a fund raising for the wrestling team. The chicken sale will be held this Saturday and some parents and kids are helping to raise money for the team. My husband is very lucky to have such helpful parents every time they have wrestling activities. Last Saturday they had a Takedownathon and also raised money for the team and had a potluck afterwards. Doug also wants to watch the Abraham Lincoln movie and he wants me and Charles go shopping. I am still undecided whether Charles and I will go shopping because of my migraines.

Solar Energy Panels


November 13, 2012

There has been a lot of talk over the last few years about energy independence and making a more environmentally friendly energy footprint. There are many types of green power now being developed under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Some areas now have wind farms like throughout Iowa and around my husband, Doug’s hometown in Northwest Missouri. There has also been real strides made in the use of solar power. The solar power advancements have been made in Solar Energy Panels and EV Cars. 

With the help of the United States Department of Energy EV stations have been set up using solar only power throughout the country. Sites include many top businesses like Wal-Mart, Macy’s Best Buy and Ikea. California leads the nation in these totally green EV stations though they are growing throughout the nation. The average EV automobile can travel 100 miles on its charge which is way under what most of us drive in our daily lives. I think it is great that these alternative energies are becoming more widely used.

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade


November 12, 2012

It’s more than a week to go and we will be in Kansas City for Thanksgiving. I am going to make Spring Rolls so I need to go to the Asian store this Sunday. Aside from Thanksgiving I am also looking forward to watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. All the floats are decorated and I am amazed how they put it together to make the pretty ones. The other thing I am looking forward to when visiting Kansas City is going to the Asian stores. One of the store is owned by Filipino and I love the store. They have Lady’s Choice Mayonnaise Sandwich Spread which is my favorite one. Hopefully they have it in stock when I visit the store and dried fish (Galungong and Sapsap) as well. 

There’s also a Chinese Restaurant that I really like and Terrace Buffet inside Argosy Casino. Oh well, I need to make a list for the things that we are going to take with us. Of course, my son Charles is way more excited to pack his own stuff. Every day he keep on asking when are we going to pack our clothes and he won’t stop from asking. Anyway, what do you think about the cold weather now? Geez my husband is loving it though Charles and I are looking forward to have snow this year. Last year, we only had 3 inches of snow and it melted right away on the ground. Charles is looking forward to make a snow angel and so am I.

My Pescado Guerrero


November 08, 2012

Abuelo's is my favorite Mexican restaurant as I do really like their Pescado Guerrero. Wood-grilled, tender barramundi filets topped with fresh shrimp, scallops, mushrooms, spinach, roasted peppers and sliced avocado in a delicious white wine sauce. Every time we go to this restaurant I will order this entrée over and over without even looking on the Menu. Tonight, why not cook my own version of Pescado Guerrero. Instead of barramundi filets I used: 

1 Slice of Milkfish
10 Pieces of Shrimp
8 Pieces of Mushrooms
½ Red Bell Peppers
4 Tbsp of White Wine
3 Tbsp of Olive Oil
1 Can of Coconut Cream
3 Cups of Bachoy Salt to Taste

First, I roasted the Milkfish and Red Bell Peppers in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. Heat the pan. Add the olive oil then sautée the shrimp, bell peppers and mushrooms. Add the Milkfish, white wine and coconut cream and bring to a boil. Season with salt according to your taste and add bachoy. Ready to serve.

I Don't Get Any Tasks


November 05, 2012

It has been a couple of days that I don’t get any tasks from publishing sites where I submit my blogs. The publishing site that’s very consistent in assigning tasks for my blogs was affected by Hurricane Sandy. Though I was able to get grab bags for one of my blogs though still I need more tasks for my other blogs. Oh well, what do you think of this time change? For me, I really don’t like it because days are longer than nights and my husband gets home a little later now that wrestling season is here. Just tonight, he got back home at 7 o’clock and I was worried because I knew his wrestling practice was done at 5:30. Till the kids got picked up with their parents should be around 6 o’clock. 

Though tonight was different I kept on calling his phone about 5 times and it leaving messages on his voicemail. I was about to call of my sisters-in-law whether they called Doug or not. Of course when your calling somebody and couldn’t answer your call makes someone worried which I did. I already told him in the past whether he need to drive a kid back home or late from practice he should call me so I will not keep on waiting and not to worry where he is.

So Many Candies Left


November 01, 2012

Yesterday, I told Doug to stop by Walmart to get more candies as I thought we did not have enough for the kids. I realized we are very lucky to celebrate Halloween with my family unlike those areas affected by hurricane Sandy. I am very thankful we are not affected by the horrendous weather. Around 5:30 in the afternoon I let Charles wear his Halloween Costume and he really liked it a lot. Though he kept on complaining “This is taking so long”, while we are waiting to get dark. Before we left the house a mom and her 2 kids came by the house for trick or treating. At 7 o’clock we went outside the house and saw our neighborhood in darkness.

Only two houses who had their lights on so Doug decided to drive around into our old neighborhood. Charles got his Halloween basket about half full and I will not let him eat all of them. I know he loves eating sweets just like his dad and it scares me the most. Anyway, after we got back home from trick or treating only two kids came by and I gave each kid a handful of candies. Geez we have so many candies left and I told Doug to take it to school and give it to the kids.
