Dill Pickle

I am a junk-food lover.  My favorite is Potato Chips - from local to imported brands, I love to munch on this junkie.  I love Kettle Chips in Salt and Pepper Flavor, Ruffles,  Lays and Original Flavor of Pringles.  Recently, I've discovered a new Pringles flavor which is the "Screamin' Dill Pickle" Flavor.  I lav et!!! It has a sour taste which is obviously because it's pickle flavor. Haha!  But it's something new that's why I like it.  Far from the usual salty flavored potato chips. Try it! =)

30 and 30 Something...

Resposted from my friend's blog.  Beautiful...


This is for all you girls 30 years and over.... and for those who are
turning 30, and for those who are scared of moving into their 30's...AND
for guys who are scared of girls over 30!!!!... This was written by Andy
Rooney from CBS 60 Minutes.

Andy Rooney says:

As I grow in age, I value women who are over 30 most of all. Here are
just a few reasons why:

A woman over 30 will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask,
"What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think.

If a woman over 30 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit
around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And, it's
usually something more interesting.

A woman over 30 knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is,
what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few women past the age of 30
give a damn what you might think about her or what she's doing.

Women over 30 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you
at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if
you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can
get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what
it's like to be unappreciated.

A woman over 30 has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women
friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best
friend because she doesn't trust the guy with other women. Women over 30
couldn't care less if you're attracted to her friends because she knows
her friends won't betray her.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a
woman over 30. They Always Know.

A woman over 30 looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true
of younger women.

Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 30 is far sexier than
her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you
are a Jerk if you are acting like one! You don't ever have to wonder
where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over 30 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately,
it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman
of 30+, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of
himself with some 22-year-old waitress

Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, "Why buy the cow when
you can get the milk for free". Here's an update for you.

Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage, why? Because women realize
it's not worth buying an entire Pig, just to get a little sausage!

My New Baby

I am into crafts and to take my love for it a step further I got myself a new sewing machine.  This is the real thing - Singer Inspiration Series.  Super far from my "cutesy, toy-like" sewing machine, which my lolo bought for me years ago. Don't get me wrong ha, I love my small machine (to death) but since I'm taking up courses like bag design and soon fashion embellishments, I need to have a heavy duty machine which will be my tool to create wonderful pieces :)

The Singer Inspiration 4228 model has the following details:

-28 Stitch Patterns
-Automatic Needle Threader
-SureFit™ Bobbin System
-NoError Threading™
-Fully Automatic 1-step Buttonhole
-StayBright™ LED Light
-25 Year Limited Warranty

I'm super duper excited! Can't wait to start with the projects that I have in mind - perfect for Christmas.

Good Deed Today

i was planning to volunteer in packing relief goods for the Ondoy victims but schedule is tight so i opt to gather some used clothes from my cabinet and baby clothes from my nephew (which by the way is VERY important coz there are a lot of babies who don't have anything to wear) and some baby caps.  i also bought assorted biscuits and plastic bags for packing.

it was hard to part ways with these clothes for sentimental reasons. tee hee. but we know that a lot of babies can benefit from this - better than waiting for the clothes to turn yellow inside the box...

but there were 2 shirts that i can't give away...sepi's 2 favorite pooh baby shirts. hehe. i just had to set these 2 aside...
