San Augustine Church in Cagayan de Oro City

I was browsing the net searching for pictures of my city. Then, I found this photo of my church where I usually go to attend mass on Sundays. This is San Augustine Church located in Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines.
When I was about four or five years old, I joined the "Flores de Mayo" where little girls excited to dress as angels and learned some songs. This is the church where I go to.
I was able to sing in this church too as a member of a choir. I became a lector in a wedding ceremony of my friends held in this church also. When I close my eyes right now, I can remember the scent of this church and the nice garden at the back area.
I have so many memories in this church and I missed it a lot.

Bottle Shock is Highly Recommended

I watched this movie just this week. A true story film in 2008 about winery in California. Watch this movie and you will love it.This is a true story when France's position as the world's top wine producer went unchallenged until 1976, when the Montelena Winery put California wines on the map. This is a story delightfully told in this full-bodied tale about the heady early days of Napa Valley's success. Bill Pullman, Chris Pine and Freddy Rodriguez star as the dreamers and drinkers, who dared to challenge the establishment, with Alan Rickman hitting just the right note as a toffee-nosed sommelier. A movie with humor and tackles about friendship, family and high hopes. Highly recommended movie and I give it a 4.5 stars.

Chris Pine, Alan Rickman, Eliza Dushku, Rachael Taylor, Danny DeVito, Freddy Rodriguez, Bill Pullman, Bradley Whitford, Dennis Farina, Miguel Sandoval, Mark Famiglietti

Beach Boulevard in Mississippi

We went to the mall today and driving on highway 90, beach boulevard area is truly wonderful. The sky is blue though a little chilly but, people have a good time on the beach. Access to all the beaches in Mississippi is FREE. If you have a camper or an RV, you can park your vehicle and enjoy the view on the beach. Another thing that you will notice on the highway is the passenger bus that you can ride from one casino to the other. This bus is called CASINO hopper and the fare is very affordable.
Please visit BILOXI in Mississippi and you will enjoy the food, the beach, the view and the casinos in this area.

Confessions of a Shopaholic: the movie

Today, I am taking my time to watch and enjoy a movie online. I must admit that I am becoming a shopaholic myself. I buy shoes, perfumes and purses whenever I got the chance. I always look for online deals and I must admit, half of it I never wear. Watching this movie gives a creep out of me. I am not a Shopaholic yet but, I am gonna be if I don't control my shopping spree. I still can sleep in the middle of the night If I did not buy the things that I like so much. That is the positive side. I have Victoria Secret products that I collected that I never opened since I bought it. Anyway, this movie impacted me so much that there is more to life than shopping. If you are a shopaholic, think twice before you will be buried with too much expenses. Watch this movie as it will entertain you and would really make a difference in your life.
This movie is about Rebecca, a shopping addict starring Isla Fisher who begins working for a financial magazine. When her career skyrocketed, she struggles to pay off an overwhelming bills. This movie is a romantic comedy based on the best-selling series of Shopaholic books by Sophie Kinsella.

The characters are: Isla Fisher, Hugh Dancy, Krysten Ritter, Joan Cusack, John Goodman, John Lithgow, Kristin Scott Thomas, Fred Armisen, Leslie Bibb, Lynn Redgrave, Julie Hagerty, Robert Stanton and Christine Ebersole.

Salad: Healthy Food

The food in my workplace is FREE. It is like a buffet that you can choose and in our breakroom, we have our own cook. Since I have an early lunch schedule since December, it is seldom that the available food will be displayed on my time. The good thing was, I can always order hot food on the menu provided. There were plenty actually. Anyway, on this particular day, the cook can not do anything for me and so; I took this salad from the fridge. This is the best salad that I ever tasted and I used Two Thousand dressing. Really yummy, healthy and simply filling.

Making Invitations

Are you interested in making personalized invitations? On my spare time, I love making art work out of ordinary things. It started when I did my first scrap book during elementary days. My important accomplishment was when I assist my brother in his wedding preparation. My sister-in-law gave me a sample of wedding invitation that she like to have. She then gave me instructions what paper to use and augment the design to make it more personalize. Some materials were not available so; I made some suggestions. To make the story short, the invitation turned out very good. The couples were happy with the finish product of their wedding invitation. Then, when my closest cousin got married the following year, he assigned me to make his invitation too. And I gladly did. Two years ago, it was my turn to make my own wedding invitation. At first, I can't find the right material and the design that I most desired. But, after few adjustments, I was able to make a personalized wedding invitation that I love on my wedding day. All our friends like the invitation that I made. Personally, I am very much pleased with my wedding invitation.

Biloxi Schooner Pier Complex

I love taking pictures as most of my blogger friends know. I bought a nice digital camera and since I bought it last January, I still did not download the pictures in my PC. I am frequently using my BB though which I find it very handy and easy to download. Anyway, the pictures below were taken just this week at Biloxi Schooner Pier Complex. If you wanna see the view of this place, click HERE. I love this picture, see the weather? AWESOMENESS, LOL! This is the Pier and at the same time the Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum is located.

On my left side, the Grand Casino hotel and casino is just nearby and those cars are on Highway 90, facing the Gulf of Mississippi.

To Quit or Not to Quit

Have you ever experience the feeling of "suffocation", not letterally though. I am referring to my feelings in relation to my present job. I really do not need this job but, if I quit, I will be bored at home. And besides, I can have projects with what I am earning. While I am at work, my body would screamed as if telling me to just quit. Last week, I broke down because I was too exhausted and yet, so much work was lined up to get done. The only way to get out of this feeling is to quit right? But, I do not quit easily. I have the WILL power and as long as I have the patience to keep coming to work, I will be alright. I will quit for health reasons though. I don't like smoke and my workplace is a smoking war zone.
