Cuspid and First Bicuspid

I love my teeth so much.  I like it clean and sparkling white. If my friends had noticed I rarely have a photo that I don’t show my teeth. &(^….^)& 

Well, this afternoon I’ve finally decided to have my upper left cuspid and first bicuspid teeth be extracted.  My dentist was good. He talked me over the precautions and other possible ways we can do to avoid extraction.  At the end, they will be pulled.

The dentist advised me to eat amoxicillin to prevent infection and mefenamic acid if there is pain.  And also, he told me eat soft food only and those that are not hot.  So for dinner I waited for my food to cool.

Below are the other food I plan to eat this day. Hahaha! Don’t say a word! I know! I know! I know they are all fattening. &(^._.*)&

Hehehe The picture looks so yummy.  I have Curly Tops milk chocolate, Pinipig polvoron from Goldilocks, Cream White Chocolate by Goya, mango juice by Del Monte and Nestle’s fruit selection yogurt straberry flavor.  WoW!


Heliconia Rostrata Ikebana

Heliconia Rostrata Ikebana.  Is it pretty? I made it today.

Heliconia, derived from the Greek word helikonios, is a genus of about 100 to 200 species of flowering plants native to the Americas and the Pacific Ocean islands west to Indonesia. Common names for the genus includes lobster-claws, wild-plantains, or false-bird-of-paradise. The last term refer to their close simililarity to the bird of paradise flowers (Strelitzia), collectively these plants are also simply referred to as heliconias.” (from )

I was tired from my work yesterday so I stayed home the whole day.  It’s better so I’ll have enough rest before I go back to work. &(^._.*)&  This flower arrangement made me a little busy.

There are several heliconias in the home garden, but I choose the rostrata.

Pink Hiyas is finally here!

My itchy feet didn’t go anywhere today but I was so busy because my itchy hands did a lot of hand made jewelries.  I made a new blog also to feature all the hand made jewelries I made. The link to that site is:  WordPress is great.  It has a perfect color and space for this kind of blog.  Thanks! Please do visit and give comments. By the way if you’d like to buy or own one of my crafts please email me: 


The Post Office

          After I went to the ASIATIC Medical Laboratories, Inc., I directly took a jeep to the post office.  There is a post office in near to my place.  It is called Post Office Sta Mesa.  I sent two special mail to my friend sin China.  The clerk said one mail which is weigh more or less 20 mg costs forty-five pesos and it will reach her home in seven days.  If I would send a mail just around Manila, it will only cost twenty pesos and will arrive after three working days.    If its outside Manila, the mail would cost twenty-five pesos and it will also take three days to deliver.  I had fun gathering this information.  Before I just go there, give the envelop to the clerk and give her money on the charge.   This experience has cleared some details on sending mails.  I still believe and practice sending greeting cards.  For me electronic cards will just pass but the hallmark cards will always be there.  &(^._.^)&


ASIATIC Medical Laboratories, Inc.

I did a lot today though in the morning I just stayed at home.  In the afternoon I went to ASIATIC Medical Laboratories, Inc. Its address is #71 Aurora Blvd., (Jade Bldg) Quezon City. 

ASIATIC Medical Laboratories, Inc has several branches.  I went to the place near to my house.  This laboratory is good.  The receptionist and other technicians are very friendly and approachable.  If you want to know more about the servoces of ASIATIC you can go to this link: .   


Food Trip!

     This is a post-entry from my travel to Korea. I was occupied with so many little things.

     Anyways, I would to share to you Korean foods that I have eaten when I stayed there for several days. Actually they are a lot. I love them all, its just that they are all spicy and hot.  My friends said, its not that “hot”. hehehe. I’m not kidding, its really hot.  The presentation and history of some Korean food that was introduced to me were great. I never imagine that there is a historical background for some food. Well, its fun to know those facts. At least while I was eating I am engaging myself into the times they started having this dish for their daily meals. 

     I have noticed that in most restaurants we went in, they have specialties. If their speciality is “Bulgogi”, they only serve that, no more.  No dessert or other food.  So, in short we still went to other places to have dessert or have coffee. hehehe

     In this post I will also include photos of all the foods that I have eaten not just Korean food.  I cannot forget my Korea trip aside from seeing beautiful places and people, we never stop eating. There was a day that all we did was eat, eat, eat.  My friend’s friends invited us from one place to the other. 

     I found out that Korean foods that are served in small dishes with cooked rice mostly  rely on fermentation to add flavor and to preserve it.  Because of this process, the food has a tangy, salty, and spicy taste.  Well now I know why the taste is like that. Anyway, not to keep you waiting, here they are, with a little “communicative comment”.

Food signs from the food house where I ate “tapuki”. I like the way these food were advertise.

Drinks! Well the chocolate drink in a tetra pack looks inviting, so we bought. Then we started having this every night during our stay in Korea. We were not able to finish eating teh chocolate bar.

For the first lunch, we had to order in a vending machine then it will be delivered to us. I was thinking the food will drop down there too.  Hahaha!

We ordered the following food. We ate a lot. hahaha!

Those are very yummy lunch. Yum, yum, yum.

And for dinner it was continued with another yummy food. Oh my, I hope I am right. The next food is “Samgyeopsal”.

Well, let’s continue the food trip. Honestly, I don’t know there names. hahaha!

Okay! Let’s go back to a little western food.  The next set of food is from ‘Pizza Hut’.

Now, let’s talk about this food. It has a very interesting story but sad to say I forgot it. But soon as I remember I will share it.

These are the food including sweets we had in Everland.

Last night’s dinner with a Korean friend.

The next set of food is our last night’s food trip in Seoul. hehehe!

Food trip was fun.  I only realized now that the first food we ate was tapuki and it was also the last.  It was a great trip for the three of us!


Trip to Wu Xi

Wow, I am in a new city in China again. This city is Wu Xi. 

Wuxi is an old city in Jiangsu Province, China.

No Good Byes to Tieling City

          After coming back from a spring vacation in South Korea I started packing again to go to the Philippines.  It still took me more than a week.  In the span of a week, I did a lot of things.  Well most of these are petty errands.  Anyways I would still like to share places I’ve been to. Hahaha!

          Teiling City is a small city where I worked and lived for more than three years. Hahaha! Can you imagine that, I was able to stay there for several years.  The place is small and can easily be navigated.  The people are friendly and accommodating.  I have met several Chinese families who would offer their homes for me to enjoy.  The city has several malls which I was able to enjoy and used all my hardly earned money ( hahaha! – Just joking! ) Another place in the city is the Long Shou mountain.  This mountain has a lot to offer for a small city.  It has a tail and a head.  It has an amusement park, a zoo and a lot of natures look.  Many trees are planted and a lot of flowering plants are around.  You’ll never run out of spot to take a picture.  The Longshou mountain is very popular for old people and family who walk around for exercise and to be in touch with nature.  There are also people who would go there to bring their love ones and play games and just walk hand and hand.

          There are also several schools from kindergarten to college, There is only one college though “The Teacher’s College”.  The citizen in this city work hard to invest in education.  I work in an academy for the English language.  This is not the only academy in the city. As of my knowledge there are at least 20 language schools.  Aside from language schools, there are for math, Chinese, and music lessons.  I think there are more but I still don’t know. 

          A few years ago when I was still new, the city mayor presented us with a miniature of a city.  This is the “New Teiling City”. At this time, there are some people, establishments and several schools being ready for the coming school year.  For the next few years it will be more progressive than today.  I’m hoping it would be a great place to start a life.

          Well, I won’t be very detailed now with what the city has.  I just want to say that I

           I’ll be coming back to this city, so to my friends, colleagues, parents of my students and most especially to my students, I’ll be back à hehehe è TO VISIT!

          To date, February 16, I left Tieling City.

          Please take some time to look at some photos of Teiling City.  &(^._.^)&
