Official Start of Summer Vacation

After a week of hiatus, I am now having some difficulty blogging  and  feel like I am having a blogger's block. Anyways, I am now done with my number one to-do list this summer and that is  enrolling my two children to school.  Thanks to husband who provides us all our financial needs.   Now  I can finally say that today is  where  our  official vacation begins.  I  just started  browsing  destination and landed here at luxury paris vacation rentals.   What a nice getaway and I hope I have all the means to spend even a night here.  It's awesome and affordable vacation that caters all your vacation needs.

So where have we been in the past few days of hibernating? We spent our weekend in Batangas, tour around my home province and attended a very special occasion that happens once a year, our barangay fiesta by which also serves as our family reunion. I wish it happens every month because when I see my siblings, time becomes shorter and we talk like we never see each other for many years  when in fact  we often meet   in  other simple events.
I will blog more later so stay tuned!

On top of Taal Church

Where we went last weekend?   Overlooking Balayan Bay and Talisay,  this is what  I discovered after a creepy climb to the tower of  Taal Church.  Please  don't take my word "creepy"  seriously,  because on top of  the tower is  a  beautiful view of  the town  and  nearby city.     I just encountered a few steps of  darkness   on our way up to the tower due to my fear of closed space and  felt  some kind of  hard breathing.    The picture below  was taken on top of   Taal Church.  This is just a snipet of  our experience. I  will post a detailed post of our quick tour later.

From My Blog to My Book

At least three new books have been added to my  to-read-list.  I  got  these from a friend  and the other one from a publishing company intended for  a book  review.  I haven't started  reading  any of those  and  just made a quick browse and  no serious reading  yet.

I  might  be on the  blogging world, but I still want to read paper with prints.  I  own  an e-book but nothing compares to hardbound book.  I am thinking now of  printing my blog.  Yes, I have been wanting to do this  for a long time now.   At first I thought it was easy.  I tried to download my blog and print few pages but in the middle of printing,  an error occurred so I stopped. I asked some  help online and I found out   Web To Print Workflow  services.  In this paperless generation, printing is still  the best option  to  preserve  blog or    serve as back  up.   I became paranoid most of the time  when I have a hard time loading my pages in the internet. Now I can order to print my blog and customize the way I want it,   like printing only  the selected posts  that  I  need.

Which do you prefer, digital or real book?   I  want to keep my blog on a book.  There are of course  pros and cons but whatever you prefer, it is the book and the content that give its weight and meaning.


The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach - waiting for a gift from the sea. - Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Household Tips

When it's summer and the weather is extremely  hot,  appliances need to be in good condition. It will not only give you  peace of mind when they are safe and working well but proper care will also  cut down  your electric bill.  It  is recommended  to clean the appliances   like electric fan  at least once or twice a week to keep the machine in  good working condition.  For air conditioner, it  is  recommended  to call for cleaning service at least once a year.   Appliances when overused get crashed  and when you need to buy parts like  split lock washer  for replacement,   you have no option but call for  maintenance or refer to manual instructions for trouble shooting tips. It surely is a tough job especially if you are not a handy man and have no idea how to do it.

To save you more from any  inconveniences,  buy only  the appliances from  trusted manufacturer  and approved for  safe use.  This way, you  will get the most out  of   them  and  will  help you  avoid  from  paying extra costs.

Ichill Theater Cafe

Chill at  Ichill Theater Cafe.   When you think of chill time, you probably think  only a few places around Metro, either  Taguig,  Eastwood  or  Makati.   You  think about  a  coffee shop with  strong WIFI  and chill  with friends over  hot or cold  coffee.

Last Friday was a surprised for me.   At  the heart of Sampaloc,   just a few meters away  from  the University of  Sto. Tomas,   you will  find   Ichill Theater  Cafe  operating  24-hours,    where you can spend time  with  friends  in a  cafe and a movie theater.    I  think that I will frequent the place because it  was terribly  chilling inside during our first  visit.    The place is  located at 1125 Dos Castillas St. Sampaloc Manila.  

At the second floor, you will find a big screen which is available for rent for movie screening and  other activities you want.  You may ask the management for booking and reservation for other events. The cost is just  P500  per  hour. When we went there,  my two daughters really enjoyed  the time because of  strong WIFI that kept them connected to the  online world.

More at Ichill Theater Cafe... coffee, donuts, pizza, smoothies are available. Bring your family, friends and classmates for group study or meet up with friends for chill time.

At the first floor, guests and customers can perform like a  star.  They can even share  joke or pick up line and win  a  surprise.   They just had their soft opening a few weeks ago, so check out for more promos and freebies  coming  soon.
