The Call

Got a call from a job agency a few minutes ago. Told me I got an interview scheduled for tomorrow 10:30 am. Honestly speaking I am really nervous because it's been two years since I had a job interview and more than one year since I got a job.

Still waiting for the agent's email for the interview details. Oh gosh.... wish me luck!

I'm "Studying" Japanese

I've been wanting to study Japanese for a looong time. I've had basic lessons before when I was working. I worked for a Japanese company before and I was also sent to Japan for a few months.

When I was in Japan, I also had some lessons there, plus I was able to borrow a co-worker's Japanese book Minna no Nihongo, but returned it when I went back to the Philippines.

It's been years and I've forgotten a lot of what I've learned before. Now, I want to study again... just in case hubby wants to go to Japan. He seriously wants to go there and try out everything authentic Japanese hihihi!

So now, I'm trying to review what I've learned before and try to learn more. I've borrowed some books from the library, like Japanese Phrases For Dummies. I also have some phrasebooks that I bought a long time ago and I brought it with me here in Singapore.

Wish me luck! Hope I won't be too lazy to open those pages every now and then. :)

Christmas Tree - Last Phase


I can't find a star or angel or any Christmas tree topper. So... the best I can do is to use ribbons. Watchathink? :)

Christmas is Near

Christmas is so near! I can feel it!

Well... not really feel it because it's not getting cold here, it just keeps raining... everyday! But... holiday decors are everywhere. As you can see from my previous posts, I've set up our Christmas tree here at home (although it's not complete yet). Plus I made some cookies to give out as gifts to friends. Yeah... I think I'm getting addicted to baking. hihihi!

This Christmas, most of hubby's co-workers/friends at work will be going home to the Philippines. There will only be a few of us left here in Singapore. So we might have a get-together on the 25th here at home. Hmm... what to cook... what to cook... Of course I immediately volunteered the dessert. hihihi!

Mike's Wish for New Year's Eve

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Syndacast. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's December... time flies so fast. Just a few days ago it was the start of 2009. And now, in just a few days it will be the year 2010 already.

Normally, people create wishlists for Christmas. Like my sister, Nikki, every year she will create her Christmas wishlist and post it in her blog and Facebook page for everyone to see. Her wishlist usually makes us laugh because some are way too expensive, or some are so hard to find. And her wishlist is like usually more than five.

Me, I do not create a wishlist. My only wish every year is for my family to be always healthy and safe and happy.

Unlike most people, Mike Teo also has a wishlist and it's not for Christmas. His wishlist is for new year. Mike has six items in his wishlist for a hot New Year's Eve party. His 6 wishes are:

  1. Disco Roller Girls

  2. GI Janes with Beer Soakers

  3. Beer Fountain with Your Mates

  4. Beer Foam Party with Your Mates

  5. Mechanical Bull Riding

  6. Bungee Jumping with a Santarina

Weird wish? Nah! Everyone has their own preferences.

We can help make Mike's Wishes come trueby voting. Vote for one of his wishes and Carlsberg will grant the winning wish to Mike. And did I say his friends will benefit from this too? Lucky huh? :)

Christmas Tree - Phase 3

Added some more ornaments...

It'll do but I want more...

Special Delivery

Lloyd and I ordered some movies from last month and the box arrived today!

We always order from because the prices of their DVDs and blu-ray discs are way cheaper, and that includes the international shipping fee.

Our latest purchase - Never Been Kissed, Ever After - A Cinderella Story, Star Trek (Three-Disc +Digital Copy), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (Two-Disc Special Edition) and The Last Samurai (the two DVDs are mine).

Lloyd has been waiting for it for days! I called him up as soon as I opened the box, and he can't wait to go home and watch them. Now, I'll start watching mine. :)
