Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! It’s a wonderful day to rejoice and celebrate the Easter sunday. Easter is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus and marks as that he lives and die for us to redeemed the world. His kingdom of Glory will reign forever.

The Holy week is an excellent celebration of life to reflect, repent and learn to be a good follower of the good teachings of Jesus Christ to be a better person. Nowadays in our busy world where life pleasure has always been the wants of every person, we should not forget to live with God’s wonderful teachings. We should do good things not only for ourselves but also for our neighbors. We should be thankful for the gift of life and we should live with it meaningfully.

Year end activity at home: General Cleaning

Again, it is time to accomplish general cleaning at home and welcome a clean and fresh new year. Last week my family and I were done with the general cleaning at the living, dining and kitchen area. Now it is time for me to finish the general cleaning inside our bedroom.

I am almost 90% done with the cleaning but I still have several things to fix. I remove all the trash and replace the bedsheets, pillow case and curtains. I have to pause for a while to finish my online work and manage the bath of my little boy.

Home renovation before Christmas

Many people are undergoing home renovation before Christmas season. It is good to see a home with good fixtures and designs especially when there is a party celebration. Some believe that home renovation is needed before endof the year to welcome the new year with good house aura and positive energy.

At home, we planned to have a minor renovation but it turned out to have lots of adjustment at home. It is day 4 of house renovation and still there are lot of things to do. We have extended our budget and I just hope that it will be done in the next two days. Dust are all around the house and the mess are everywhere.

How about you? Is there a house renovation going in your place?

My last weekend activity

I have been wanting a different weekend mommy bonding activity dreaming of spending the day with our mother nature away from polluion but it did not happen. At home, I just clean the dining area and the shoe cabinet. I have noticed that there are some old things n the house that needs to be in the trash. That is saturday when I clean that area. Yesterday, I clean our bedroom and I have setup the play area of my little boy. I enjoy arranging his toys and books.

In the afternoon, we went to the church and eat at Mc Donalds. I missed their yummy french fries dip in my caramel sundae. Try it and you will like it. When we got home, my little boy is still energetic so we play on his play area. I took some photos of him but I can’t upload the photo here because I created this post through my mobile phone.

In the evening, we still play. When my little boy is asleep already, I watched a bit of MMK and star movies “A dangerous man”. My hubby and I discuss about what business to venture to have a good year end savings.

I have a good weekend.

My first time at Blogger Fiesta 2011

This is the first time that I attended the blogger fiesta. It started at around 10am but I arrived at around 1:30pm because I have important things to priotitize at home.

While I create this post, one of the speakers is still tackling about blogging personalities. I am happy that there are so many things that they shared for bloggers especially the newbies. So if you are a blogger it is good to attend blogger events like this.

Experience at the Government Hospital in Manila

A week ago my cousin was confined at the hospital because of Dengue fever. Thank God that she is now better and doing fine at home. At the government hospital where she was admitted, I have noticed that they do observe strict order and cleanliness. The nurse that attended are so neat in their nursing uniforms. Because my cousin was admitted at midnight during that time, there is only  few doctors on schedule. You cannot talk to them immediately because they have patients in line to check.
Only one person is allowed to go inside the room and help the patient so we waited at a couple of minutes at the waiting area. The waiting area is near at the hallway. I was with my sister to accompany my cousin there. We could see some staff passing by at the hallway in their hospital uniform scrubs. We also saw some nursing trainees wearing their nursing scrub uniform.There are also other people waiting at the waiting area and I heard them that the visiting hours is from 4PM to 7PM. 
After a few minutes, the brother of my cousin(Dengue patient) approached us saying that he will be the one to stay so we just leave him with some money to keep for the hospitalization. The next day I visited my cousin in their visiting hours. My cousin only stayed four days at the hospital and on the fifth day she was so happy to return home. The hospital that I mentioned here is San Lazaro Hospital in Manila. I hope most hospitals here in the Philippines will be like their standards when it comes to service, clean and order.

Daily Gospel Readings and Reflections 2011

1st Reading: Dt 4:1, 5-9
Deuteronomy 4:1

Moses Commands Obedience
 1″And now, O Israel, listen to the statutes and the rules that I am teaching you, and do them,that you may live, and go in and take possession of the land that the LORD, the God of your fathers, is giving you.
Deuteronomy 4:5-9
5See, I have taught you statutes and rules, as the LORD my God commanded me, that you should do them in the land that you are entering to take possession of it. 6 Keep them and do them, for that will be your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples, who, when they hear all these statutes, will say, ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.’ 7For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as the LORD our God is to us, whenever we call upon him? 8And what great nation is there, that has statutes and rules so righteous as all this law that I set before you today?
 9 “Only take care, and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things that your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life.Make them known to your children and your children’s children—
Gospel: Mt 5:17-19
Christ Came to Fulfill the Law

 17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Reflections taken from Daily Gospel 2011 by Claretian Publications

Jesus said to his disciples, “Do not think that I have come to remove the law and the prophets. I have not come to remove them but to fulfill them.” Jesus is the fulfillment of the whole story of salvation. The law and the prophets have their real sense in understanding the person of Jesus and his mission. God continues to lead our own history anytime.

Happiness Quotes by my friend | Looking for Kooky

I would like to share a wonderful beautiful quotes that was given to me by my friend “Kooky” twelve years ago. Kooky is my close friend when I work as a Local Store Marketing at Mc Donalds. She is my crew mate when I am not yet promoted as LSM in the year 1998 at McDo and she studied in Philippine Normal University. She is very nice, kind, helpful and a good influence in my teenage life as a working student. Although we only spent two years of our life as close friends seeing together, I am so thankful to have her in my life. Surprisingly, I found this twelve year old letter of her from my box so I read and reminisce.
She is so sincere as she wrote a letter for me in my 19th birthday. In the letter, she included a beautiful inspiring quote about happiness.

Beautiful Inspiring quote about Happiness

In my two years of close friendship with Kooky, I never got a chance to know her full name. Maybe I was too busy during those time because I am a working student that every time we were together, we are contented to what we have. I was trying to search Kooky in friendster and facebook but I didn’t find her.

To Kooky,

Wherever you are  I hope all the best for you and I know someday we’ll meet again.

Lovingly your true friend,

Jem

Blog Hopping, commenting and Ex-links

I would like to dedicate this post to my fellow bloggers who are dropping by at my blogs, commenting and requesting for ex-links. I am very sorry if I was not able to drop by  to some of your blogs, leave a comment and granted ex-links. It is because I have a tight schedule with my regular online job and my fingers on my right hand were injured resulting to limit my extra online activities.

As much as I wanted to do blog hopping, commenting and update ex-links, I can only update a few post for my blogs. I think I need to rest my fingers because they are so stress with my  online work add to the fact that I am also taking care of my little boy.

I will be doing my regular blog hopping, commenting and ex-links maybe after a week and I hope my fingers will have a fast recovery.

Happy Blogging!

Simple SEO in my blog

I have been blogging for almost ten months now and I have learned that aside from the quality post you make, Search Engine Optimization plays an important role in websites or blogs. In my first three months of blogging, I have seen websites and blogs with good amount of traffic so I tried to read about search engine optimization.
Search engine optimization is the way of improving the volume or quality traffic to a website or increasing the readers in blogs naturally. It is also a technique ensuring that your web pages are accessible which aids search engines find and rank your site higher than the millions of other sites in response to a search query. 
When I read about search engine optimization, I have found that there are search marketing company that provides such services to get the most of your online presence at an affordable cost and effective ways to get found. Many companies prefer to get these services for their website so they can be easily found in search query competing with other companies with the same product when someone searches for their product. It will lead to increase their profit in business when their products are searchable and popular.

In my blog, the simple ways that I have done for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is to optimize the title and keywords. I used the title as also the keywords in my post and I choose to bold the letters of keywords.
