F1 race and Espie visit

Pers time ng F1 race sa Singapura pero sa tv lang kami nanuod, simple lang ang rason…mahal ang tiket hehehe, at isa pa di naman kami ganun ka die hard.
Kung pumunta sana si Iel e nanuod din kami…

Heniwey my friend and her family came over for the race, gustong gusto kasi ng mister nya at mga kids nya ang F1 racing kaya ayun lipad sila dito for a few days.
Nag meet lang kami for dinner at hinatid na naming sila sa hotel, they’ll flying back tomorrow…
I’m sure super nag enjoy silang lahat though pagod….

Sabi ko ke labs, next year watch na din kami ng race….,

Here’s the latest photos:



















Sale! Sale! Sale!

O di nga ba at Ramadan month, at kesyo malapit na ang Hariraya natural kabi-kabila na naman ang sale dito. Sabagay e sadya naman di na nawala ang sale dito. Simulan natin sa pagpasok ng bagong taon at andyan na ang CNY sale, tapos Valentine’s sale, tapos me IT show pa na sandamakmak ang electronics sale na good deal na din naman sa dami ng freebies, tapos papasok ang Great Singapore sale na tatlong buwan ang durasyon, at sasabay pa ang National day sale, pagkatapos ay Hariraya sale, Deepavali sale at ang pinakagusto ng lahat ng tao na mahilig sa shopping…ang Christmas sale….

Eto ang masaya, nito lang Hariraya sale e kung saan saan na kami nakapunta para magtingin ng sale, umpisahan yan sa mga forwarded mails na sale dito or duon, tapos ayun na magkakaayaan na po…last week lang hangga Changi area e nagalugad namin sa paghahanap ng isang warehouse sale, ang malupit wala naman kami normally nabibili kasi either super crowded or wala magustuhan. Pero minsan din naman me makukuha kang goo…

Box-up time

Yeah, malapit na ulet ang pasko ay sumapit at umpisa na naman sana ng pamimili para mailagay sa isang jumbo na balikbayan box ang mga abubot / pasalubong / papasko para sa nasa lupang hinirang pero this time naiba ang linya ng pamimili namin ni sister, inumpisahan sa mga abubot para sa magiging bagong bahay at naging karir na malaunan ang pamimili ng iba ibang aksesoriya para sa magiging bagong bahay…inumpisahan sa kusina, banyo, kuarto at kung anik anik pa, hanggang mapadayo sa Ikea at makakita ng magagandang window blinds na yari sa kahoy na mas mura kesa sa bumili sa pinas kaya pati blinds dinamay na rin….

Sa wakas napuno rin ang isang Jumbo na balikabayan box, kinuha kaninang umaga at ang ship-out daw e sa biyernes na darating.
Give or take 2-3wks shipment / clearing time, andun ang kahon sa pinas by 4tt week of October, tamang tama sa uwi namin….

Entonces wala munang papaskong kahon ngayong taon….bow….

Quote of the Day

Galing ulet sa mga forwarded email:

“Happiness keeps you sweet,
Trials keep you strong,
Sorrow keeps you human,
Failure keeps you humble,
and Success keeps you glowing,
but only Faith and Attitude keeps you going…..”

Novena Church / Mama Mary’s Procession

Well, since we have started again going to Thomson Medical which is very near the Novena Church, we made it a point to attend the 10am or the 11am Novena Service. It’s in English and a bit different from what novena is like in the Philippines. Here the service contains a readings of thanksgiving letters as well as petition letters, of course not all are being read, I think they choose randomly. And the priest will give a sermon and lastly there will be a benediction of the blessed sacrament …We both find it soothing to go every week and just pray, the crowd is always big and a mix of different nationalities but even though there’s a big crowd, you’ll not be distracted as the service is always so solemn.

And as it is Mother Mary’s birthday today, the celebration was done yesterday. We thought we are early as we left the house two hours before the procession starts but when we arrived at the church there was too much crowd that we ended up standing with some of the crowds on the opposite…

Two days to go until contract completion and there’s still a lot of finishing to do.
I’ve spoken with the contractor and he committed to complete the whole work by end Sept at the latest. Even if I am a bit doubtful, I have to take his words. I just hope that it will be completed by then since our plan is to go home by Oct just in time for a house warming.

Well, here’s the latest pictures sent, all interior shots. Kitchen counter tops done, cabinets in progress, flooring done except external floors, primer paint done, ceiling done, partially done stairs and railings.
I really, really hope this will be completed by month end.
