Last Friday, we were supposed to go to a funeral to support one of our beloved church members. But sadly, we couldn’t because Perze got home right at the time that it started. We instead met up with close friends, Mel and Raph to go over their wedding website consultation. My sister couldn’t make it because of a recent cold, so it was just Perze and me. Over pizza and chicken, we built their site from the ground up, trying to find ways to tweak and personalize their website, for FREE! Yes, WordPress was acting like a rebellious teenager, not letting us customize the css: fonts, parameters, dimensions, and insert a jpeg background, etc. They permit it, with the condition that M&R pay a fee. But, after 3 hours (and some extra time I put into it in the wee morning while Zi was asleep), it turned out better and prettier than most “do-it-yourself” paid wedding templates out there. So they got to save some money. Plus, I get to work on new graphic projects, a peaceful hobby of mine. After several trial and errors, and some setbacks, due to WordPress’ dimension constraints, here’s the first graphic I made out […]
After having watched Julie and Julia yesternight, I was inspired to create a different blog dedicated to a specific goal, that may better enrich my readers, as well as myself. Aside to my penchant for writing, I love learning about Christian theology, reading the Bible, and books that may further give me understanding about God and His Word. So, just a small thought to toss into the air, I’m thinking about fasting physical food for spiritual food. Here’s how it works, for 30 days, I omit, say rice, and substitute it for reading “Systematic Theology” and then blog about it daily, what I learn and ponder and what not. Something like that. What do you think?
Today, I had a date with my beloved Emma. I gave her the choice to either: To see a movie, The Princess & the Frog Go to Barnes and Nobles and read books Go to Target and shop around She chose…BARNES & NOBLES! YaY!! I was hoping she would so I can look at books and drink some coffee while getting some learn on. she really loves barnes and nobles because she gets to pick out which books to read. she chooses two and I choose one. Today, she chose the 10 lady bugs and alvin and the chipmucks. I chose the Children’s Atlas! lols…hahahahahaha…i know…but at least she can pin point where America, Philippines, Singapore, NJ, Texas, California, and Virginia are. Plus, she also knows where President Obama lives. She also learned that there are sensors in our eyes and ears that receive information to bring to her brain, and that’s what makes her think. That, and Brittany is the lead singer in the Chipettes! While walking around, I also got to teach her who Audrey Hepburn and Elvis Presley were, although she probably already forgot about Elvis. She initially thought I said Audrey Pepper, so we played a […]
Yay, she stood up by herself! Milestone for our beloved Zienne at 8 months. She was sitting near our bed trying to reach for something to help her stand, but she did it on her own. For only a short while, she stood, then went back down into sitting position. This only signals the beginning. Congrats baby girl.
Generation Facebook and Twitter is called to a higher purpose to respond to the beacons of help from nations facing disaster. I admit, Facebook and Twitter easily allow information to seep from devastated countries to the living rooms of every individual. You don’t have to watch channel 10 news anymore or wait for the morning paper. Even making donations have been easier for this generation. You can now text words to local companies that will bill you on later payments. You can add donations during checkout on Ebay to Red Cross through Paypal. Like our church, we were able to make mass promotions through Facebook events and our official website to gain awareness to give during the Manila flooding, concluding in a very humbling response from the community. Now, Haiti. After the earthquake, it’s really good to see the effort through these social mediums. Respond to the call. It’s not like the days of our parents when we wait for mail to reach us and we have to write out a check and lick a stamp and wait for it to reach the need. Respond to the call. It’s out there, and we can’t just make excuses that’s it’s too […]
Pros: quality heavy fabric, classic cut Cons: ruffle material flimsy I love Leifsdottir. When I saw this dress in the stores on sale, I automatically didn’t second think it. The fit alone makes you feel classic, with the heavy fabric being very forgiving on any "imperfect" areas. The cut is classic, as stated, with cute button details on the side, giving it a little subtle character. Also, the ruffle is a cute addition, but I only wised the fabric was similar to the overall dress fabric. The ruffles are constructed from very thin cotton flimsy plain material which looks a little awkward when up close because that’s the only part of the dress that has that specific fabric. So the two types of black is a little askew. But that’s hardly something to worry about when the rest of the dress is really beautiful, aesthetically as well as when worn. I’m 5’2 and the dress hits right at the knee. For such a modest dress, the best part is accessorizing this with your shoes, stockings, earrings, rings, and bracelet. Fits true to size. And lastly, it’s completely VERSATILE. I wore it to a concert that I conducted, but it’s also […]
