I have always been in love with photography,and its one of my passion.Somehow wanted me to take a lesson or study short course about photography but as a brand new mom,thats way to impossible at the moment. For this Christmas i am eying to buy a new camera precisely the DSLR CANON 500D.Currently i'm using the SONY DSC-N1 series and i super love it because its very handy and the features are great.But as time goes by,new tech's are coming out,and i fell inlove with the new CANON DSLR.My cousin's are using this one and they told me this one is far better than the other DSLR.Though the price is competitive ,but the fact that its giving you the best results,then it would be highly appreciated.Better save enough so i could buy this one.. :-)

LITERALLY WE ALL KNOW WHAT BAD BREATH IS.But do we all know what really is the cause of bad breath?Bad breath is the unpleasant odor.In the medical field it is called HALITOSIS.This will go on and on if it will not be treated.If you have a bad breath,the very first thing people tagged you as "poor hygienic person",and its not a good impression.There are millions and millions and millions of bacteria live in the mouth and produce sulphur gases and cause of bad breath.As i had my research,i found some causes of bad breath:
CAUSES OF BAD BREATH:
- POOR DENTAL HYGIENE
- INFECTIONS IN THE MOUTH
- INFECTIONS IN THE RESPIRATORY
- SYSTEMIC ILLNESS
- DRY MOUTH
- EXTERNAL AGENTS
SYMPTOMS OF BAD BREATH:
- SOUR TASTE
- METALLIC TASTE
- DRY MOUTH
- POST NASAL DRAINAGE
- FILM ON THE TONGUE
THE OTHER PRIMARY REASON Of BAD BREATH IS THE IMPROPER DIGESTION.Eating healthy foods such as vegetables,grains,fruits especially high in Vitamin C help improve the digestive system.If you want to check if you have bad breath try this out:
* GET A SPOON,TURNED IT UPSIDE DOWN AND SCRAPE THE VERY BACK OF YOUR TONGUE SLOWLY ,YOU WILL SEE SOME WHITE MATERIALS,NOW SMELL IT..BAD? OR NOT SO BAD..OR EVEN WORST..(that's probably how you smell to others..
*LICK YOUR WRIST SLOWLY FROM BACK OF YOUR TONGUE TWICE.WHEN THE SALIVA DRIESS UP,SMELL IT..
Basically those are just 2 steps to know the smell of your breath.To make sure that your breath has no unpleasant odor,you can visit your dentist and have your teeth and gums checked.There is no duration of where and when the bad breath last because it will depend of the cause.Early treatment and prevention should be done so not to have bad breath.Preventions includes brushing your teeth,tongue and gums after eating,flossing,rinse with a mouth wash,and visit your dentist regularly.

For the past 3 days,i wasn't active with my blog for some medical reason's.Just last Sunday,we are very sad and so worried when we found out that the poop of or baby is not normal.He's been defecating and its not solid anymore but water.After 3 hours,we rushed him to the hospital to have him checked.We were advised to have a stool exam and later, our Pediatrician found out that he is positive of AMOEBA.What a surprise.He's drinking a distilled water,bath with a mineral water,bottles & even toy's are sterilized,cottons under go with an autoclave,alcohol before holding him,well sanitized room and house,but what a surprise,he still got it.I asked our Pediatrician why he got it and where,She said,that's the common disease we got if its a rainy season.No matter how we avoid it,it will attack us especially to the babies.We are just so blessed because baby Sky is such a strong willed baby.We know deep inside that he's fighting.Given the fact that he's not feeling well,that he's tummy is aching,but still he smiled and hugged us and play's with us and not showing any signs that he's sick as if everything is normal.God is so good that he provides us all the things needed for he's medication.Right now,baby Sky is still under medication,given proper diet and 100 times careful with everything.
My apology to my friends who visited here and wasn't visit you in return.Hope you all will understand.I'll double my time to visit you guys.Thank you..

For the past 2 years, my hubby was active playing Airsoft.For those who don't knot what an airsoft is,its a hobby or sport where they use firearms replicas and play as if they are in a war.When they play they set a goal to obtain depends on what they agreed upon.Who ever has the last men standing or the first one to achieve that certain goal, the marshal will then declare as the winner.
If you decide to joined this kind of hobby or sport,you should be emotionally and financially prepared.Emotionally because since you are plying as if your'e in a war,you have to anticipate that someone out there will totally cracked you and surely hit you.Financially because you should have all the basic gear in order for you toplay.
These are the basic stuff needed..
- GOOD GUN
- BDU ( battle dress uniform)
- FACE PROTECTON-MASK
- GOOGLES-AIRSOFT EYEWEAR
- GUN BAG
- BOOTS OR SHOES
Tomorrow,my hubby and his friends will join this tournament and will cross our fingers that everything will be ok..GOODLUCK mga baki,,,!!

As i mentioned on my entry entitled BOOKS, Joel Osteen is one of my favorite author.He's books are a good source of strength to me.Why?because in our lives,there are things that are hard to understand,to much impossible that made possible and a lot of questions that need to be answered.We encounter different circumstances that are quiet hard to understand.I've been searching some answers but yet i cannot figured out why.When i read Joel Osteen's books,little by little i found the answers to my questions especially about our daily encounter with our lives.One thing that hit me is
- " ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT KEY TO A BETTER LIFE IS TO KEEP YOURSELF HAPPY,RATHER THAN LIVING TO PLEASE EVERYBODY ELSE.."
- FEED YOUR GOOD HABITS"
- BE POSITIVE
- BEING GOOD TO PEOPLE
- KEEP YOURSELF HAPPY
- STAY PASSIONATE ABOUT LIFE
These are just among of Joel Osteen's very inspiring words from his book BECOME A BETTER YOU.Life is too short and we should live it to the fullest.Happiness is far much more important than anything in this world.

When two persons decided to get married especially us Christians,one of the many things to have in the ceremony is the wedding ring.When i was still a kid,i remember i asked my mom why is she wearing that ring all the time and the rest she will removed if she will go to sleep or taking a bath.My mom said,it is not an ordinary ring.It may not be the most expensive ring she has but its the most important & the most precious ring she ever has.With my innocence at a very young age,i asked her why?and she simply said,it symbolizes marriage and her commitment to fidelity to dad,a token showing their love for each other,and symbolizes eternity and endless love that cannot be broken.. .But then again because of innocency ,i just leave it that way.As i was growing up and start collecting jewelries,every time i checked my box,i always remember the words that mom told me.A wedding ring is not just an ordinary ring. I always wished that someday i'll also have my own wedding ring exactly like mom and dad.
Last sept-2008 when my hubby asked me to marry him,i was very excited because soon i'll have my own wedding ring...
here are some picture's of our wedding ring:
Our's is a 14k white gold.A clean and uncomplicated design since i want something that's unique and timeless.Its a combination of brushed and polished surfaces.Very comfortable to wear and could fit any of your outfit.Its something that without it, its like i'm not wearing anything...

From my recent post,i mentioned that i exposed my baby to reading books because i know that it will help them develop their skills.But as i have observed,baby's need time to play also.They should be given other output instead of just reading or just listening to baby songs.My hubby and i decided to buy a toy, something that he will enjoy at the same time develop his skills.Before we went to a mall ,i surf the net first to check whats good for his age..I then saw this Fisher Price Kickin and Bobbin Gym.I fell in love right away by just looking at the picture.I told my hubby if there's a stock available then well buy it for him.Afterwards,we then go to a mall and luckily there's one stock left.We asked the sales lady to try it and when baby Sky saw it,he was amazed and smiling and kept his foot kicking.Its as if he's telling us " Mom,dad pls buy it for me".We were so delighted looking at him,knowing that he liked the toy also.It was kinda expensive (P3,995) but because we know deep in our hearts it will make him happy,then without no doubts we bought it.i'll just loosened on my personal expenses instead :-)
Now baby Sky's is very happy and having fun with his new toy.

Last night,my hubby and i watch the news together with our 6 month old baby when the news broke out that one of the deadliest disease ages from o-5 years old is PNEUMONIA.It makes me sad because i have a 6 month old baby.Right after the news,i asked my hubby what really Pneumonia is, the signs and symptoms and the causes.I asked him because he's in the medical field and i know gladly ha has bits and infos regarding that disease.This is what he says:
PNEUMONIA is an inflammatory of the lungs caused by the bacteria,viruses or fungi.
- CHEST PAIN
- MUSCLE ACHE
- BREATHING PROBLEMS
In order for the doctor to diagnosed if it is PNEUMONIA,the patient will under go general examination and chest x-ray.If then positive with Pneumonia,the patient will be given antibiotics,advised proper rest,give plenty of fluids,medication and hospitalization.Babies are so fragile that we have to take them extra care.In order for the baby not to have it,baby should be prevented by avoiding contact with people who have colds or suffering from lung or respiratory infection.Babies should be away from people who are suffering from chickenpox or measles that may develop pneumonia.
Mothers are advised to bring their babies to their Pediatrician for their vaccines.My baby was injected

Last friday,i had so much fun malling with my baby..Its a mall wide sale and my hubby let us go to the mall..It was soo much fun and so with my baby Sky..Im not really the typical person who loves to go out to mall during sale practically because there are a lot of people, you have to wait 30 minutes just to pay a single purchase, so crowded, and if your'e hungry ,you have to wait for a table..(which i really hate) even at fine dining or food chains..But last week,i had sooo much fun.The mall service are improving.They set up fast lane cashier,and its making everything fast...GO Go Go !! I remember when im not yet married, everytime i get inside the mall,i go straight to my fave bookstore'to check new book releases and boutique's to check whats new and whats hot for the month,but now that im already a wife and a mom,i go straight to boutiques's that sold for baby's, for the house, for hubby and last for me..:-)..Truelly change everything if you're already married..The prices are quiet good..No 50% mark down but at least there's a 10 or 20 % less..quiet good enough..ayt!! Better save for the next mall wide SALE..

In layman's term mortgage is a security for a loan that the lender makes to the borrower.If we want to involve into mortaging,the very first thing that really comes to our mind is to who and what company that offer a very small amount of percentage interest to offer.We have to consider the calculation of the short and long term goal.We all know that the economy is fluctuating and that we have to choose the best company who deals and negotiate your desire property to be mortgage.
People who have the best line credits and with good and clean history in any credit lines are rewarded with good opportunities.Basically because they can apply and can be approved right away. People with perfect score are rare and for you to have a good score you have to be diligent in paying your credit cards,phone bills and etc.Marking a good and perfect score opens to new and good opportunities in the market.One thing also to consider if you have a good,clean perfect score is you can avail the cheapest interest.People with good history may also get the full capital with the lowest rate possible.So as early as now we have to be careful,honest and pay our obligation on time so we can maintain a good clean and perfect score.

My mom told me as young as 1 year old,i am already fascinated with books.She told me she would always read me stories from fairy tales to novels She is a wide reader,and i guess i got that from her.I would always see different books from her table and beside her bed table.Maybe then,i was enthusiast to read books also.She would rather buy books for me than toys.As i was growing up,reading books for me is a part of me.I'd rather stay home at week ends than going out with friends,out in the street even at the weewee hour of the night.Now even if i am already a wife, a mom and a blogger,i still find time to read books.I have a lot of favorite authors.For my spiritual guidance, i read Joel Osteen,Joyce Meyer,Rick Warren,Bo Sanchez.For novels,i admire Paolo Cuello,Dan Brown,Nicholas Sparks and a lot more.I barely read suspense books because i'm very very weak-kneed when it come's to suspense or horror stories..Books literally help me widened my horizon , and I learned a lot from reading.Its one way of educating myself and knowing myself of who i am in behalf.
When i was still pregnant with my baby,i make it a point to read stories aloud so my baby in my tummy could hear me.When he was born up until now my hubby and i would read him stories and its so nice seeing him very excited and very behave every time we read stories for him.My Pedia told me that introducing your baby to books helps him develop his senses and his literacy development.We buy books with big and bright pictures and pictures with different expressions.
Books are full of learning and opportunities and i would gladly want to expose this habit to my baby.

For the past 3 months,my hubby and i,together with his staff are busy, in preparation for hubby's own dental clinic.I must say,it is not easy putting up a clinic.From ordering big dental equipments,down to cotton balls is so much stressing.75% of the materials and equipments are mostly bought outside the country, from his dental chair,light curing device,sterilizer,composite resin,scaler and etc have to be shifted 1 month before to test if all are doing well.In god's grace, everything are working well accordingly...He make it a point that he choose the innovative, unique and highly reliable products for the clinic.I must say again its very stressful but with god's grace everything is doing smoothly and easy.
Well be opening on Oct.8,2009..First 10 patients will be given 50% discount..
