Hearty Beef Stew

I don't know about you, Guys, but I love stew so much. It is like a version of Menudo or Afritada in the Filipino cuisine. The only difference is that it has more sauce kinda like a soup; and this hearty beef stew will put some meat on your bones. The teriyaki sauce adds a nice zest to the flavor of the stew. The meat comes out moist and tender.

1 pound cubed beef stew meat
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon paprika
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups beef broth
1 1/2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 onion, chopped
3 carrots, sliced
1 stalk celery, sliced
2 potatoes, cubed
1/2 pound mushrooms, quartered
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bay leaf

Place beef stew meat into a slow cooker. In a small bowl, mix together flour, paprika, salt, and pepper; sprinkle over beef stew meat, stirring to coat. Stir in beef broth, teriyaki sauce, onion, carrots, celery, potatoes, mushrooms, garlic and bay leaf.
Cover, and cook on Low 6 hours, stirring occasionally

Rafflesia Leonardi only in the Philippines

A five-petal flower, believed to be the only one of its kind in the world and endemic to this province's rainforest, was unveiled here earlier this week.Without roots, stems or leaves, the flower, named Rafflesia leonardi, was discovered last May by a multi-sectoral group with the aid of Agta tribesmen at the remote Sitio Kinapawan in coastal Lallo town, three hours from this bustling northernmost capital. But the flower's formal unveiling, according to Perla Visorro, president of the Cagayan Valley Partners in People Development (Cavapped), was only made Monday after almost six months of laboratory studies and research by local and international botanists to further determine and prove its rarity.The flower, which takes nine to 10 months to fully bloom but starts to wilt after around seven days, was named after Filipino botanist Leonardo Co of Conservation International, who confirmed it as a new species of Rafflesia five months after the flower's discovery.The flower, which is around 1.5 meters in diameter and only thrives in the rainforest here, was discovered some 300-700 meters above sea level within the Kinapawan forest of the Sierra Madre mountain range. Visorro said the new species, whose features are similar to R. lobata and R. manillana, was the fourth Rafflesia species found in Luzon and eighth all over the country. However, among the world's Rafflesia species, the Rafflesia leonardi is the only one with a diaphragm.

This very rare flower can only be found in the Philiines is very pretty. And I am hoping that someday I can grow it on my garden. Who wouldn't wan to have it in their garden? Am sure every gardener will love it. What do you think?

Blog Advertising

I used to criticize people who do blog and wondering why they need to expose their personality on the internet where other people can read. Then one day, my friend gave me a call telling me about blogging and how it will help me gain friends while earning money. I said ok I’ll give it a try (sounding reluctantly). I registered and made an account for myself. After a week or so, I have found myself liking it and gaining friends! I didn’t know how fun it would be till I joined the blogging world. After few months, I realized that maybe I should try making money out of blog by signing up to some paid post company my friend have been telling me about. As soon as my blogs were approved, I started writing reviews, testimonies to promote advertisers products and services.I found a new hobby through blogging and gain more friends around the world. Then I started finding some more paid post and luckily came across Paying Post, a new blog advertising network that allow bloggers to earn extra money online. I thought it was great! To all of you bloggers out there, register now at and earn extra money yourself! Plus, do you know that Paying Post opportunity creation fee is 50% less compared to other paid post companies or competitors you will find out there? Yes, and I think it is great! I am very glad I have found Paying Post and pleased to say that I got two opportunityies already right away after my blogs were approved.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

When life seems grim, what can you do to find reasons to be grateful? Follow these suggestions.
Think about it differently. Remember a time when something positive came out of a negative experience, recommends psychologist Robert A. Emmons in his book, Thanks! How the New Science of Gratitude Can Make You Happier.
Be aware of the little things. "What makes a difference in life are the little things," says psychologist Karen Sherman, Ph.D., and author of Mindfulness and The Art of Choice: Transform Your Life. "Are there little ones in your life that allow you to see the world through their innocent eyes? Do you have the safety of shelter? Are you blessed with good friends or neighbors? Can you say that you are healthy or have recovered from an illness?"
Help someone else. What have you done to help someone else recently? "Most of all, can you say that you have touched the life of another person? When you have, in fact, made a difference in someone's life, you have made a great contribution. And for that, you have a lot for which to be grateful," says Sherman.

Birthdays on a Budget!

My son will be turning 5 next year and he wants to have a little birthday celebration; a party with his friends at school and neighborhood. It makes me feel nervous and worries for the outcome and most of all the costs of having it. I searched the internet and founf these tips and I will definitely keep them in mind when it comes to budget. Now I know that my son can have party and have fun without going over limit. Here they are:
Make sure you have a budget and do your best to stick to it. It's much easier not to over spend if you keep track of what you're spending.

Explore your options. It's fun and exciting to go to an indoor play and party specialty places. But they can be very expensive. I know some people are willing to pay extra so they don't have anything to worry about. Unfortunately, I don't have that luxury! Look around and be creative. If you can't have the party at your own home, try local parks and playgrounds or your local community center. Or, instead of paying for the full party, pay for a small group of friends to go to a play place, then back to your house to finish up the party with cake and ice cream. Or consider off-peak times. Some play places offer considerable discounts for weekday parties.

Keep it simple! There is no need to spend money for the kids to be entertained. Print up some coloring pages, throw down blocks, Lego's, cars, doll's or whatever your child likes to play with. I had our box of Legos and some puzzles and the kids had a great time. Throw kids together with some toys and they will entertain themselves!

Don't feel the need to feed the kids a meal. Or, if you want to, pick something quick and easy. Our local pizza place has $5 cheese or pepperoni pizza's available all the time. It was quick and easy and the kids loved it. If you don't want the added expense, then have the party between meal times and just have a few snack-type treats.

Make the cake yourself. If you're keeping it simple and small, making a cake is a breeze. Not only do you keep the cost down, you also cut down on left overs! And to decorate it? Look at your child's favorite toys, clean them up and use them on the cake -- Pokemon figures, Thomas trains, Polly Pockets, Dinosaurs... whatever you have, use it.

Finally, use your resources and use what you already have. Can't bake? Perhaps you have a friend that can. Ask her and this can be the birthday present. Do you know people that own any businesses that may give you discounts on party supplies or bounce houses for your yard? I looked at what I had on hand when it came to the goody bags (which are optional). I had been given lots of Kung Fu Panda activity CD's and had lots of left over Halloween candy. With a little planning and creativity, it is possible to throw a fun, exciting party for your kids for under $100. The final cost for our birthday party was $75, and $25 of that was the clubhouse rental. All together there were 20 people -- 12 kids and 8 adults. Every one had a great time and no one missed any bouncy castles or people dressed up as a big mouse.
It's not about being "cheap" or "thrifty" -- it's about being "resourceful" with your budget and making the dollars stretch!

Well, all I can do now is just wish and hope :-).

Thanksgiving Meal!

What Your Thanksgiving Meal Says About You

When it comes to the holidays, you follow and love the big traditions. You look forward to them every year.

You see the holidays as a time to be close to loved ones. It's a good time to reconnect and make memories.

You like the more adult aspects of the holidays - parties, cocktails, and having time off from work.

During the holidays, you are likely to feel creative. At your worst, you feel unappreciated.

You consider yourself a real red blooded American, and you're proud of it.

You tend to spend your holidays sharing and pitching in. You'll do whatever needs to be done.

Since Tanksgiving Day is only two days away, I decided to take this test and see what Thhanksgiving Meal will say about me. I like the results because that is how I am when it comes to traditions and Holidays; but what I didn't like and is not true is that I feel unappreciated, because it is not so true and also I don't consider myself as full blooded American, but proud to be married to American and of course am American now because I am married to American Caucasian. Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving Day everyone!

And set aside time watching t.v. or video together as family.

It is always my desire to help save the planet earth by keeping paper bag we get from grocery stores and return it back or dropping them at a recycle place.

Some people were already seating and waiting for something to happen which I didn't know what. I figured it out right away. So when hubby and son came home from church (we used both cars because hubby needs to be at church early for a monthly meeting), I told them that there is a parade in Downtown Ashland and we need to see it. So after eating lunch, we went to see the parade even though it was really cold outside.

So took some pictures of us while waiting for the parade. Here is Jacob beisde the car.

Teary Eyes

I can be very emotional sometimes; just like today, when hubby was telling me that I needed to play with Jacob today. He told me that Jacob told him that I was mean and doesn't want to play with him. That wasn't true and he knew it. Tears started running down my face. I don't know why, but my eyes get teary today for whatever reason. Then hubby felt bad about it and thought that it was his fault. I just told him to go and let me play with our son and that none of these was his fault. Weird of me...huh!

Application Errors

Lately I have been experiencing problems with our internet connections and don’t know how to fix it. The browser indicated xpnetdiag.exe missing which by the way no idea what that was. So I call the internet provider to fix it for us, but most of the times I ended up waiting for them till next technician is available to help me out. Good thing I have found XPNETDIAG.EXE, it helps me to identify and fix connection problem by monitoring the health/status of the network. This tool also scans through the common malfunctions of network and once detected the tool tries fixing the problem for me. This tool is very cool! I also found out that through XPNETDIAG.EXE, you can detect issues in the network connectivity status, and the network diagnostic for windows XP which we have, process and analyzes some network components which are common to have problems with. Basically, it performs some routine tests related to IP configuration, default gateway, Winsock, DNS, firewalls and internet connection and validation. This tool can do a lot of stuff than I can imagine possible. It also aids with computer systems using HTTP protocols and can make outbound communication with other computers like instant messenger, chat rooms and more. Try using XPNETDIAG.EXE tool in almost all your computer’s problems.

This is great! Princess Bride Movie, my all time favorite Disney movie is on video game now. I am glad my husband bought the movie back when he was still single and kept it with his future children in mind. Now that we have our son, we still watch it and of course with our son now. Our son loves watching it, too! Anyway, back to the Princess Bride Game, which is based on the classic hit movie combines with spectacular animation and adventures. Let me tell you the purpose of this movie; it is to help the princess Buttercup and Westly manage living in farm and survive everything and even conquer the evil Prince in order for them to live happily ever after just like in the the movie. Listen to the original voices of Wallace Shawn, Mandy Patinkin and Robin Wright Penn. Am sure my son would really have a blast once we play the game since he is old enough now to play video games. You might want to check the free online game demonstration by going to; and find the hidden objects with miracle max. If you are thinking of gifts to give to your kids this Christmas, this video game would be a great one. You can purchase them at Best Buy, Office Depot, Hastings, Blockbuster and even at and store nationwide. Go and purchase one now!

The Approachable Me!

You Are Very Approachable

You can talk to anyone, and it shows. People are eager to start conversations with you.

You are open and friendly. You are willing to connect with almost anyone.

While it's great to be approachable, there is such a thing as too approachable.

Eventually someone will try to take advantage of you. Don't be afraid to say no or end an awkward conversation.

It is nice to know that I am an approachable person even though sometimes I feel like people are having hard time talking to me because I am a quite and shy person. But what they don't know is that I am a friendly person and easy to get along with once you started talking. I wished people would judge me not the way they see me in person or outside appearance but what I am inside. We can not really judge the book by its cover. Can we?

New Elect U.S. President is Black!

Have you seen this picture before? Isn't it amazing? Whoever made this is very talented. This was taken in one of the beaches in India. In here is the way they say Congratulations to the Elect President Obama. Anyway, we were watching the movie they made about President Kennedy. The movie is all about racism during his time. Can you believe it? After 40 years or so, there it is...The new elect President of the United States is black! I know racism is still in the blood of many Americans particularly Caucasian. I was just wondering what is going on in their minds now.

Lean Cuisine Chicken Meals Recalled

If you are one of those people who loves Lean Cuisine Frozen Meals, you might consider checking the labels first before buying one. I am not a fan of froxen foods because for me, they contain ingrediets that are not very good to our body like preservatives. My husband buys some of them every once in a while especially when they are on sale. I better make sure that he knew which ones to avoid or he might end up getting sick or who know what harm it can do to our body.

Nov. 18, 2008 -- Nestle Prepared Foods Company is recalling 879,565 pounds of frozen Lean Cuisine chicken meals that may contain small pieces of hard blue plastic.Nestle issued the recall after getting seven consumer complaints, including one report of a minor gum injury that did not require medical attention, Nestle Prepared Foods Company spokeswoman Roz O'Hearn tells WebMD.

The following Lean Cuisine products are being recalled:
LEAN CUISINE PESTO CHICKEN WITH BOW TIE PASTA" brand frozen meals. Printed on each side of each package is a production code of "8280595912" as well as a use-by date of "Best Before MAY 2010."

Where did the plastic come from? "We determined that the plastic entered our facility in a single lot of an incoming raw ingredient," O'Hearn says. "We're trying to figure out how to prevent this from happening in the future. But we went into action very quickly on a very small number of complaints."

Dual Action Cleanse

One time my husband told me about a product that will help clean colon that are available in the market today. I was skeptical about it at first because for me there is no such thing that would really clean our colon. He told me he wants to buy one so he can try it and prove to me that I was wrong. Then one day, while I was on the internet I came across this Dual Action Cleanse product. I got curious and started reading it. I became interested and told my husband that he should try it. Dual-Action Cleanse's is a natural herbal formula that cleanses the colon; it also helps eliminate toxins build up into our body. When we have clean colon, we also have healthy balance in our body which is the key to personal wellness. What I like most about this product is that, it decreases gas or bloating, more radiant skin and hair, and an overall trimmer appearance. Aren't you interested yet?

A Feast for Giving Thanks

Holidays and family traditions seem to revolve around the dinner table. Yet, while eating is a favorite Thanksgiving Day pastime, dialysis patients are all too aware of the impact holiday foods can have on their labs. This year enjoy the foods you love without suffering the bad effects. Read article

I used to be a dialysis patient and I tell you the diet for a person who undergo dialysis is very different from the foods the normal or healthy person. It was hard for me that time; I am glad I was over it and is now enjoying the foods a healthy person enjoys. Thanks to the the toddler who donated his two little kidneys to lengthen my life for the sake of my son and husband. The Lord always works in such a way that blesses the life of each one of us and according to our needs. Anyway, If you are on dialysis, just read the link provided above from Da Vita.

DHP Home Delivery

My grandmother is very old now; she is 98 year old and is weak to stand up or walk on her own. She needs help and she gets it from her children and grandchildren. Anyway, she pee and poop on her underwear just like any old people we know. So to make the job easier for those people who take care of her., we deiced to buy her undergarments. We have found DHP Home Delivery Company, Inc who offers disposable healthcare products for elders and people with incontinence problem. We chose Surecare Slip On Underwear because this undergarments is designed with the look and feel of regular underwear; the waistband is very comfortable and has easy to pull on style that eliminates the need of buttons, tape or strap. It is super absorbent because of Polyfresh, and reduces odors while retaining the maximum fluid.

Breakfast and Lunch with Dad

Today is a father and child Thanksgiving Lunch at my son's school; but unfortunately, hubby has to go to work. I ended up going there myself instead. I am glad that Mrs. Young (Jakes' teacher) allowed Moms to come if Dads are not available. The lunch turned out to be good. Foods were great! I forgot to take picture of it, but anyway there was slice of turkey, mashed potato, green beans, cookie, roll and tea and milk. I like it and I think kids love the foods, too for most of them ate all their foods on the tray. I have to pay for my foods ($3), well that wasn't bad.Yesterday morning was a breakfast with Dad, too! Matt was working so my son and other kids whose fathers weren't there ended up eating inside their classroom instead in cafeteria. Wonder why there is no breakfast or lunch with Moms. That's ok!

International Calling Cards

I am sure every Filipinos like me felt so homesick the first few months they got in America; for me being away from them for thousands of miles was very hard not to mention the big adjustment. I called my family particularly my parents few times a week. I used prepaid phone cards when I call them from United States to their cellular phone back home. I only pay 10.2 cents a minute and that really saves us a lot of money than using our regular phone. I really like using Golden Dream for there is no connection fee and tand hidden fees. Plus it is one of the best selling calling cards you can use when calling your loved ones to the Philippines or any Asian countries. If you sign up now, you get a 3% cash back. Visit to find out what is the best calling card for you to use.

Food for Thought

Believe while others ..By William Arthur Ward

Believe while others are doubting.
Plan while others are playing.
Study while others are sleeping.
Decide while others are delaying.
Prepare while others are daydreaming.
Begin while others are procrastinating.
Work while others are wishing.
Save while others are wasting.
Listen while others are talking.
Smile while others are frowning.
Commend while others are criticizing.
Persist while others are quitting.
Remember we can do this !!!
I really like this poem and I think we should always keep these things in mind as we strive to be the best that we can be. We sure are learning from other people's feeling, thoughts and actions. We are setting a good example for them if we follow these things.

He loves Filipino foods and doesn't really care much on junk foods for that is how I trained him, which is eating more healthy foods and less junk. He still eats junk food foods from fast foods, but only when hubby is craving for burgers and fries, then we go to McDonalds or Pizza Hut.

Holiday in Branson

One of my dream vacations is Branson, Missouri. For some it isn’t on the lists they wanted to go to when it comes to a vacation. But for me, it is! I never been to this place, but heard a lot of nice things about it. They say it is a neat place to see; kind off like Texas, flat and plain lands. A friend of ours gave us some pamphlets and actually there are lots of neat and nice places to see like amusement and theme parks, the IMAX Theater and more. I also want to see the historic LDS Temple in Nauvoo. We are planning to spend our Christmas there with my in-laws as a gift for my father in-law's 80th birthday. It’s going to be fun; my friend said Christmas themed activities in there are very popular and one of tourist attractions every Christmas. At Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing, they not only celebrate Christmas with all nice lights but also Santa by including a deluxe accommodations, children’s gift registered, breakfast, picture with Santa and of course, cookies and milk. On the other hand, the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel has the “wonderful life” package where it includes breakfast at the famous Liberty Tavern Restaurant, lots of shops and a Branson Landing passport with discounts on shops. You can stroll the historic downtown Branson or view thousands of lights at night, too!
