Yad Wants to Go to the Gym to Workout and Build Muscles

My son Yad is eating dinner while watching television just now. I am in front of my desktop computer taking care of some freelance tasks. Suddenly he called me to say he wants me to buy a treadmill. I asked him why. He said he wants to workout so he'd shed off his "bilbil sa tiyan (extra belly for you or baby fats for him)." I asked him again why. Answered me that because of the "bilbil sa tiyan," he doesn't have muscles (probably means a six-pack abs) in his stomach and he looks fat. He further told me that he wants to go to the gym to workout. Noncommittaly, I answered back why don't we both go and have body workout. He innocently (or is he?) but excitedly replied yes. All along our little discussion, I really wanted to laugh but refrained myself from doing so continued taunting him instead. I fired him my last question if he is already a "binata" (a man). He answered me with conviction and with a very beautiful handsome smile pasted on his lips, "iyo, mommy (yes, mommy)!"

In case you don't know, Yad is 10 years old. :D

Here he is:
He doesn't look fat at all, right? Here's another:
So, is he fat?

Here's a half-body photo of him:
Certainly, not fat!

Finally, whole body photo of him:
So, fat-not Yad. Slim, just like mommy;)

But I don't understand why he thinks of himself as fat and he needs to build muscles. At an early age of 10, he's certainly conscious of his body built.

Hhmmm... wait...

Could it be that he wants to look good in front of everybody or just of his crush? And he thinks that for a 10-yr old boy to look good, he also needs to build muscles just like those handsome and lean men? Or could it be that he is already courting this little girl he said he had a crush on? Is he growing up faster than I thought? OMG! Pray God No!!! It couldn't be! My little boy is my little boy! My little boy is my family's little boy! *Mommy extremely sad and nostalgic now:-(*

Stem Cell Preservation: Unique Christmas Gift of Hope and Well-Being

I know most of you are already thinking this early what better Christmas gift to give this holiday season. I already suggested one in one of my previous posts, but if you are looking for a meaningful and unique Christmas for this season, this post may be of help to you. Please continue reading the rest of this article to find it out:

Giving gifts is one of the normal routine you do to make your family and friends happy during the holiday season, or even during ordinary days. But what gifts do you pick to make them feel special during the Holiday season? Perhaps new clothes? Bags? Shoes? The latest computer game software or gadget? Cellular phone? All these things can make our loved ones happy, but how about making it extraordinarily special today?

Now, how about a life-saving gift? Haven't heard anything like that yet? If you want the most meaningful and thoughtful Christmas gift, you will love this gift idea from CryoCell International, which are:

C'elle Stem Preservation Holiday Gift Cards

To those of you who haven't followed this site, let me introduce CryoCell International: it is the company behind the groundbreaking medical innovation, which uses stem cells to preserve lives. To find out more About the Science and why this is going to be just the most meaningful gift yet to give to your loved ones, read more below:


Studies shown by the CryoCell International suggested that stem cells can treat over 75 diseases including life-threatening ones such:

  • heart disease
  • diabetes
  • osteoporosis
  • Alzheimer's disease; and
  • Parkinson's disease.
C'elle's technology urges the people to preserve vital stem cells because these can be used for future treatment of many diseases. Stem cells can be collected from the newborn's baby cord blood or from women's. These cells, according to C'elle, are stored and cryopreserved under low temperature for future cellular therapies for diseases such as the mentioned ones above. This trend has already been popular years back making it one of the most talked and researched about in the medical industry. In fact, this has already been featured in one of the local weekly talk shows hosted by Korina Sanchez to open the eyes of the public how they can preserve lives of newborn babies by taking and storing their stem cells.

So, if you have loved ones who are pregnant, give them these C'elle stem preservation holiday gift cards this Christmas. It is going to be your most extraordinary statement of love and care because you are saving their babies from future diseases.

I Can Feel The Christmas Spirit... And I'm So Excited

I've been thinking of something to blog but I couldn't come across any interesting stuff to write in here although I knew I have some things I promised will be posted here. But I'm too lazy to do it now and I have some freelance work to do. Anyway, I just want to say hi to all readers who visited this site and those who keep coming back. I hope we all have a great friday ahead of us. It's TGIF, so I guess most are excited for the weekend. And oh! Few more days and it's gonna be December. Last night when I, Epoy and his sister Ate Bon strolled at the mall to buy stuff, I kept telling them that at this early I could already feel the Christmas spirit; and with great enthusiasm I looked at the holiday decors and Christmas stuff around full of hope and light.

I don't know the reason but I am very excited and thrilled to welcome the holiday. Maybe something exciting and good are up for me in the coming month. I have a slight feeling too that starting this Christmas season, all things in my life are gonna be put on track and in places where they rightfully should be. I don't know what those are, but I hope they really are good and promising for me. Anyway, one thing is for sure I am gonna embrace those with great warmth in my heart and optimism in my mind whatever those are. In the meantime, gotta have some work to do. So, have a great one to all of us, alright?

Personalized Christmas Gifts!

How many days is it before Christmas? 29 days, right? Well, that means you still have plenty of time to shop for gifts. But if I were you, I wouldn't wait long before buying those Christmas gifts and wrapping them. As you know, when December steps in, it always means jam packed, long queue in malls and department stores. You don't want to get caught by the Christmas rush, so better start visiting the malls now and see what Christmas gift items are hot now.

But, are you too busy to do that just yet? I have a suggestion. Try shopping online for some personalized holiday gifts at Pexagon. They are offering 20% off on their personalized thumb drives. The promo runs until the end of this year, but are you going to wait until such time? Pexagon has cool thumb drives available in 14 different colors, with up to 16GB in capacity. You can make the thumb drive personalized by having it custom-laser engraved. Don't worry as all you have to pay is the discounted price, engraving is FREE. I think this is a very cool idea because I can have endearing words engraved to the mini flash disk if I am going to gift it to my dear one.
If thumb drives are not your personal cool idea for a gift, Pexagon also has other gift items, such as:

personalized pens - available in three unique styles, different colors, and free personalized engraving (as little as $1.59 discounted price);

Business card flash drives - this is a very cool one. It looks like it is a business card but when you flip it over, it actually has a mini USB cable with up to 3GB capacity. Free engraving; and

Wooden USB flash drives - if you are environment-conscious, why not have these wooden designed flash drives as your Christmas gifts to your colleagues and friends? These are available in 2-4GB capacities. Free engraving.

Super Bored...

Looking super bored while waiting for the Dean of Polytechnic Institute and a student to finish whatever transaction/discussion they were having yesterday. I intended to talk with the Dean because of that Math-instructor-and-replacement subject issue. I wanted to get her blessing first before I continue with this instructor's class to ensure the units will be credited at the end of the semester and yeah - not waste my tuition fee as well. I don't wanna repeat my mistake last semester when I took a lecture-laboratory Chemistry subject, which supposedly I already took years ago. I paid more or less 3 peso grands on that subject, but since we found out I just repeated the subject course, the money was put to nothing at all. Talk about being irresponsible again by not double checking my subjects. Whew! I better be careful now 'coz don't wanna do that again. Fortunately, the Dean assured me now that the Math subject I enrolled in for this semester will be credited on my transcript of records. So, yeah! Madame, I will see you for the rest of this semester - and I repeat, whether you like it or not!

Help Our Kids Improve Grades and Prep Their Way to Higher Education

I'm just done signing up with Brightstorm, an online education site offering educational services to elementary and high school kids. I had signed up because this is one thing that will I need for my son. In one of my previous posts, I have mentioned how Yad at one point had slowly lost his interest in school. Thank goodness, he's back on track now and proof of him being in the 9th place in the grade 5 class where he belongs with 50 or so pupils. I am happy and proud of him. However, I don't want to sit contented by that. I want to ensure he stays in that place, and better yet, progresses more and climbs up to the top spot (even second or third honor spot will make me really, really happy for him).

With Brightstorm, it will be easy for me to help him with his process of learning and studying. The education online site has different courses which are essential for the college-preparatory middle and high school students. The mission of this company is to help students reach their full potential by engaging them to study more through the online videos provided. In my own opinion, videos are great learning and studying tools that will get them more interested and improved with their study habits.

And you know what? I think their mission is going to benefit me too. ;) You see, I don't remember all the stuff that my teachers taught me about history, geometry, algebra, science, english, and others back then. So why don't I listen to these online teachers along with my son? Hmm, this is a very good idea especially now that I am taking up Math subjects too. And the good thing about it is, Brighstorm values our kids more because they have this teaching approach that reaches out the cognitive level or understanding capacity of middle and high school students.

Very informative, very educational, very easy to understand, with funness and professionalism to the content of each course, and more importantly, the site is 24 hour available - these are what you are going to have if you sign up. Education effectiveness is what Brighstorm wants for our kids so they could prepare themselves to their future higher education level. I would say, it is definitely worth it to sign up. In case you have a child(ren) who needs help with his grades, Sign up for a free brightstorm account. They will surely improve with the help of Brightstorm's pool of great teachers handling all subjects taught in middle and high school level.

Upon signing up, you can avail the free course as an instant bonus to you. I haven't used mine since I am yet to explore the website and find the subject that my son, Yad, needs most improved. Signing up for a free account that gives you access to a free episode in every course is sure going to be great start for us mommies to help our kids improve more their learning abilities.

Math? I love this subject!

I just got back from school. I only have two subjects for this day, but it felt like I've been to eight classes straight. The reason is because of the stress one instructor in Mathematics has been giving me since my first meeting with her. The subject is supposedly a replacement for the subject in my curriculum (an old curriculum) for the purpose of units completion. She didn't want to accept me because according to her, the subject was way too far from the one she is handling this semester. She further says that there is no relation at all. But the thing is, the Dean's office allowed me to take her subject as only a replacement to complete the lacking in my Math subject units. At first, I got quite frustrated since all I wanted at this time is to continue with my classes and end them as soon as possible. However, this instructor, as well as the other instructors of AUL, is giving me a hard time.

But heck! I won't easily give up on this one! There is no backing out now. A number of sacrifices on my part has been done - all because I wanted to finish my degree so that I could continue with whatever plans I have as far as my career is concerned. And right now, I don't have any plans of putting my sacrifices into nothing. All I want is to graduate. And because of that? That instructor will have to see me for the rest of this semester, whether she likes it or not! Because there's nothing that she can do now. Math? I love this subject, so she's no reason to belittle me that I can't make it to the top of her class. Let's just wait and see, Madame!

I'm Checking Out Holiday Zenni Glass Frames! How 'Bout You?

Have you bought a replacement to your eyeglasses yet? If not, that's good for you because you will still be able to avail the Holiday Glass Frames From Zenni Optical. If you have been following my blog, you will know that Zenni is the shop that sells affordable yet stylish eyeglasses and frames online. They also appeared on Fox News, so it is no doubt that this online shop is going popular than ever.

The popular online eyeglasses shop is now back to give you more exciting choices of eyeglasses. See the photo of the pair of eyeglasses at the right? I have checked the online shop, and this is one that I found will most suit me. I am quite into style and function, so that is my personal favorite amongst the holiday glass frames. I just so love the design and the color white of it, plus the plaid, preppy look of the frame. It costs $12.95. That's rather affordable for that design and function, huh? If you will browse other designs available, you will find even more affordable ones, like the $ 8 Complete Rx Eyeglasses. If you like this design (I'm sure you do!), there are other color combis available like: black and burgundy, black and yellow, black and blue, and white and clear.

Nat and Alex Wolff of Naked Brothers Band Season 3 Finale

A lot of girls, and even guys, has been going gaga over The Jonas Brothers. It's clear than water that wherever they go, they create a chaos amongst their die-hard fanatics. These are what I have been thinking when I have learned and watched the video of Nat and Alex on Youtube. They are just soo cute and adorable. You are asking who Nat and Alex are? If you haven't been watching, these two cute adorable guys here are your Naked Brothers Band.

And the reason why I thought about The Jonas Brothers is because I do really think that this duo is in the same path. I mean, just judging at the amount of responses coming from their fans, Nat and Alex are sure a hit in the limelight. In the website, a lot is going on in there. You can hear the band's music, visit Nat's and Alex respective blogs, join the games and win prizes, and then participate on the site's boards, and etc. Videos and photos can be viewed as well.
Speaking more of Naked Brothers Band, Nat lost his Mojo so the band is heading to the woods to find it. But, hey, the audience can help find it. How? By simple visiting (I already did) their website and tuning in and live chatting with Nat and Alex Wolff. You can help too by subscribing to Nat's Youtube Channel. And there's more that you can do to get him more mojo. That is by watching the video together with your friends, spreading this word, and making it your homepage. And reminder: this Operation Mojo kicks off on Saturday. Post?slot_id=25695&url=http%3a%2f%2fsocialspark

Flat Belly, Anyone?

I am a relatively skinny woman, thanks to that because I can wear almost anything, but the problem is I had a belly. Even before I gave birth to Yad, I already had this not-so flat belly. I remember when I was in my teens, my mother used to remind me to be careful on what I eat because of that. But back then, it wasn't that bad because it looked firmer than today. Maybe it was because of the giving birth, but I'd be most happy if my belly becomes flat.

We all know that to flatten belly is to work your body out, unless you undergo the expensive and sometimes dangerous knife surgery. I don't like the surgery because I'm just too afraid of the idea. And the thing is, I am too lazy to resort to body workouts, so is there still hope for me?

Are you asking the same question to yourself? Do you have a problem belly too? Now, it is a good thing that I found a new program just the right solution for this dilemma. Good news to us, ladies! We can dump the fat gathered inside our belly by this new Flat Belly Diet program. Yes, just food for the belly diet. That's the handiest solution for our dilemma, right?

This program is initiated by Prevention Magazine, wherein they are looking for select group of women who would like to participate and try the flat belly diet program for free. If you are chosen to try this out, you will have these benefits:
  • A free copy of the Flat Belly Diet book
  • A free 1-year membership to the Flat Belly Diet website
  • Exclusive membership to our Success Story Club
  • The chance to blog about Flat Belly Diet on our website
  • First look at exclusive Flat Belly Diet videos
I wish I could participate here, but there's the distance issue again. So, might as well help spread out this word and hopefully one of my blogger friends will be selected for this program. Go check it out, girls!

Yad and Sean William Scott Just Saved My Day!

I just had a fight with my younger brother. It's just one of those little things that I always get irritated with, like not being so hygienic with food. I always find my nerve flaring up when it comes to food issue. I don't like you picking on food with your fingers when it isn't supposed to be a "pika-pika" food. Use the right utensils so the stuff on your fingers doesn't get on my food. Even if you washed your hands with soap and water, don't pick on my food when it isn't a "pika-pika" food, and specifically... if it's a saucy or soupy food.

Coz you'd always lose my appetite then... and my temper! Grr!

That was a plain and super simple rule, right? But, yeah! My brother's always like the bitchy, quirky one, always trying on my temper. It's a good thing that Yad is there to console me. Well, not directly. He just went to make my day by telling me he was included in the top 10 of the class. He said he was in the 9th spot in a 45 or so students. I would have wished he had ended up at one of the top 3 students, but knowing how Yad changed his study habits, being in the 9th is enough to make me happy and proud of him. So yeah, this good news was enough for me to forget the little squabble that happened earlier.
You see? When he was in the first grade, he ended up in the 3rd honor place. However, when he stepped into the 2nd to 4th grade, he didn't make it even to the 10th spot. With all the cellphone and computer games, and the camaraderie he got himself bonded with his new friends, his school went into just his second priority. He wasn't the same Yad I remember back then who was so enthusiastic about going to school and learning new things. He slowly lost his interest that his grades started to show its toll. As a tough mother to a child (yes, you could call me a tough mother sometimesor maybe most of the times?), I complained how his grades turned out and became strict about getting his good grades back.

No, not just good, but high grades! I would force him to hit his books and tell him no to go out. I would sometimes bargain something for him in exchange of good grades, like a cellphone unit if he ended up an honor student after the school year. But you know, a kid's mind his age (he's 10 years old) can be lost exploring newfound friends, new cellphone games, cartoon network shows, and computer games. That's how Yad is! He's not the type like other children who is busy making good grades. His mind is full of anything but school. School is second priority, as what I have noticed during the past three grade school years. He is a hyperactive kiddo, no ADHD though.

So, it occurred to me that I cannot be harsh on Yad anymore because he is still busy exploring his childhood in him. I thought I might just give him this privilege since childhood happens only once to use, right? Thankfully, his grades were not that bad. He still manages to earn a satisfactory grade rating, so I decided to loosen myself a bit over him. I had stopped demanding him to be at one of the three top honor spots. Just as long as he isn't getting grades as low as 75%, I would get away with it. Occasionally, when I would notice how he's getting deeply lost in other things except school, I'd still be the tough mom who would impose something harsh on him. But generally, I had let him take his own course by stopping to be the strict mom. And see how it benefited him? Now, without the constant tough and tight orders on him, he went into that 9th spot. That's an improvement, ayt?

And why did Sean William Scott made my day too? Well, he did nothing but flash his oh so heart-melting smile and squint his deep, talking eyes. That's enough for me to forget the world. I so adore this Hollywood hunk. I was so, so lucky to chance upon him today on the Tyra Banks show. And even Tyra couldn't hide her admiration to the handsomeness of this American Pie star. And he's always got humor in him. I love the portion when Tyra wants to sit between Sean and 50 Cent, so they could strike a model pose. But the two purposely didn't move their legs, so she ended up sitting actually on both men's knees. This and Sean's so full of humor totally cracked me and the audience in the studio. I love, love, love, love, and just love SEAN WILLIAM SCOTT! He is my dream guy! He melts my heart, just at the sight of him in photos and screens. I LOVE YOU, SEAN WILLIAM SCOTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Err, forgive me for acting like a young girl, but I simply am into SEAN WILLIAM SCOTT! lol!

What Shall We Expect From Obama's Runaway Victory?

Weeks before the US Elections, I already felt that Barack Obama will emerge triumphant from this considerably sensational and historical event in America. Some people I argued with, including my father and other friends, did not agree with me whenever I'd say that it will be Obama who's going to replace Pres. George W. Bush. It's true that this African-American Senator of Illinois has managed to get massive support from different communities, but I believed that somehow the Americans wanted change - a change they believe only Obama will give. McCain would have been the same instrument for this much-sought after change, especially as far as the current mess Pres. Bush will be leaving behind is concerned; but it is clear than water that the Americans have spoken. At the turnout of the election, Obama and his supporters rejoiced from the runaway victory. But for the people to rejoice this early, I would think that is not the right thing to do. We have yet to see what America will be like under Obama administration.

And why I am posting this one? And kinda late at that?

Because, as they say, when America sneezes, everyone, or rather, the world catches cold. Because we, Filipinos, will have to be aware what this will impact us - I don't know if good or bad (I pray though it will be the first), but it will. Don't forget that Obama does not like America outsourcing jobs because he wants to give job to every American individual. So, what does that mean to us? Philippines has always been one of the favorite nations, which the Westerners outsource jobs from - and I admit I am one of the individuals who have benefited from that - but if US President-Elect Barack Hussein Obama withdrew this outsourcing job relationship, where does that leave us? But then again, this is just one of the thoughts that have been running in my mind ever since Obama declared his platforms particularly concerning on that issue. I am never, and will never be, in a position to foresee what will happen under Obama's helm, but this is one fear that have been boiling inside me although I don't intend to stay longer in this outsourcing industry. One of my mentors in AUL quipped that if may that happen, it will undergo process and thus may take quite a long time. But what to those individuals who planned on staying in this industry forever?

On the other hand, my fear, or your fear, is unfounded and maybe what happens next is the contrast of that. So, I guess the right thing to do at this time is to wait and see.

And not that Obama will read this post, but I still want to congratulate this great man for giving this new adventure for America to face with!

Let's wrap this post up with "Long Live, America!"

and, of course!

"Mabuhay, Pilipinas!"

For Tech-Savvy and Not Too Tech-Savvy, Check This Out!

I have had the privilege to discover a great site called, Cqweb, which basically caters to readers who need a lot of information about Mac OS X, internet, money, and servers. I am not saying that I am ignorant about all these things, but I do admit that I still have a lot to go to claim that I am well-versed with all those stuff. Having visited this site made me realize that. Say for example, doing backups to your data might seem a simple idea, like you just buy a hardware, you connect it to your cpu, then perform backup works. However, having read some valuable information from the site opened my eyes up to a lot other options. Like with a large Redundant Array of Independent Disks bank (or what they call RAID), or doing away some local devices by individual departments, and best of all, archiving your files to an ever dependable DVD. The author of the site makes it possible to inform the readers how a lot other options are worth taking a time to consider things over. If you are an individual like me who aren't so well-versed with such technical stuff, it is best that you visit and bookmark this site for a lot of important issues can be found here much to your advantage of course.

Bubbles of Thoughts Rises Again!

Since getting this blog site active again sometime late last year, I have been very intent in keeping it updated with all happenings, thoughts, and just anything that is in my mind. I have been very enthusiastic in putting into words through this site all that boggles, bothers, interests, and things running in my mind. As you can see, I have enough posts in each month and all of them were random. I don't cater to a particular theme to make this blog site a great one. It is my personal site. I meant to use this blog as merely my avenue to release most of what is inside my heart and mind, and monetize it too on the one side. But I never meant to let it sit for a long time.

Though I left this Bubbles of Thoughts idling for two weeks, it feels like I have ignored it for years. It is a pity that I have let it go that way, because you see? This site is one of my most important possessions right now. It took me few minutes to set this site up, but I took many days and hours just to complete the layout. It took me months before deciding that I need just the white layout and nothing more elaborate on the design. It is hard work to completely set up a blog site. With my site, it isn't complete yet in terms of the design, the layout, the widgets, the banners, and other stuff. But then, I had put hard work and time to let it be as it is today. It is my precious baby now. So, I am really ashamed that I have been detaching it from my daily life for the past two weeks.

If I could talk verbally to this site, I will apologize and hug it. I am so ashamed that I ignored you, baby. My life was down for the past few months, and the past two weeks were even like hell to me. I have been so consumed by the adversities that went around me for a while. I wallowed in depression that I haven't had the strength to go out my room for most of the days in the past couple weeks. I have sent myself locked in this little sanctuary with no companion but my computer and internet connection. I had my kid and family whom I sometimes chat with, but most of the hours of the day, I am in front of my computer trying to work on things just to ease away the pain and longing in my heart. But that was a mistake I realized I should never do again coz it got me more depressed than ever.

The past two weeks was the lowest point of my life this year and I regretted that I allowed things to go the wrong way. But now that I am collecting the pieces of my life back together, I am hoping that everything will turn out alright in the end. I am waiting for things to happen In God's Time. I am in no rush here now. I am doing this post to signal that I have risen from the dark weeks I have suffered. I am writing this piece to remind myself that there are a lot of fine things that surround me and they are just waiting for me to use and maximize them.

Right now, I am ready to take on the brighter side of life. And this Bubbles of Thoughts site will accompany me to whatever point of life I may have reach in the future. We will both have more focus on things, so that I will never leave it hanging in oblivion once again. I will have more strengths that I will be using but I know there will be more weaknesses and failures I may have encounter yet again. But one thing is for sure, I will take the positive things that come with every weakness so I won't go down again to the grave of emotional pits.
