Translation Service...

Knowing how to speak different languages nowadays can sometimes be rewarding and advantageous to ones self. I  for one speak two different languages, English and Filipino. Actually in the Philippines where I'm originally from, there are so many dialects that are spoken there in different places. Our national dialect there is Tagalog, that dialect is spoken in most parts of Luzon region. I came from Cebu which is in the Visayan region, the dialect spoken there is called "Bisaya" or "Cebuano". So basically, I speak 3 different languages if you include my dialect.

Anyhow, learning a different language can sometimes be difficult especially if you are just starting and not accustom to it from a young age. I did not have any troubles learning the English language because it is our secondary language there in the Philippines and it is being taught there beginning in the first grade. 

Anyway, if you are really interested in learning a different language, there are a lot of software that you can use to translate it for you, but the question is how accurate it is? Using the Rosetta Translation would be the quickest and much wiser way to learn a new language because they specializes in providing professional technical translation(s). If you're in a hurry to translate something you can go on to their site by clicking the highlighted words and get a free quote!

Hopefully, I'll get more task next month, I want to pay all my debts to I can proceed to my next big plan. Thank you so much Lord for this opportunity!

New Haircut!

I finally decided last night that I want to have my hair cut in layers again but this time it has more layers and much shorter than the last time I had it cut. I am happy and satisfied of how it looks now. I won't have to worry about my youngest son getting a hold of it and pulling my hair for it really hurts! Such a tiny little hands but when he gets a hold of my hair he's got a lot of muscles! LOL! Anyway, I won't miss my long hair, I'm actually glad that I decided to cut it because it starting to get really dry on the bottom, even the hairdresser told me so! It feels like I have a brand new hair, it feels so light and actually refreshing!

Pain in the Hind End!

Sometimes I get so frustrated thinking on having to depend on somebody to drive me somewhere! I got my driver's license about 4 or 5 months ago but I still can't drive by myself because I did not have a proper practice when I was still learning. So basically, I am still learning on how to drive to this day. Anyhow, me and my mother-in-law goes to the dump, I'd say twice a month maybe. It is so frustrating for me sometimes because the garbage piles up and it looks so awful at our backyard! She use her 1980's truck to haul the garbage to dump. 

There's no garbage pick up where we live because we live way out in the country. If only I know how to drive a straight shift then I don't have to depend on her to go the dump. She did try to teach me how to drive the truck twice, and after I almost hit a phone pole she did not try to teach me again. She said she want me to learn how to drive a straight shift but I everytime we go out in the truck she never mention letting me drive again. I don't dare to bring up the topic because I do not wanna be accused of forcing somebody. And the same case on going to dump, I just let her decide whenever she feels like going. Nothing I can do about it because she's the one driving! Oh why life could sometimes be so frustrating?!

So Glad I Cleaned our House!

I am so happy I decided to do some house cleaning today. God knows how much our house needed it. Our house was starting to look like a warehouse with all the boxes piling up in the living room and my hubby's electronics stuff sitting on the counter. It was a mess! Although, I did not touch his electronics, I did manage to vacuumed our living room, two bedrooms, two bathroom, scrubbed two showers, dusted the appliances, furnitures and frames and mopped the kitchen floor. I did not feel like doing anything but thank God I forced myself to do it. It is really relaxing to just sit and look around a clean house. I know it's not gonna stay long but I guess I'll have to do it all over again!

My vegan buffalo wings for the Super Bowl party

Guest post written by Dave Myers

It can be kind of tough going to a super Bowl party and being a vegan. There are so many great smelling things there but I can't eat a lot of them because I'm vegan. I thought I would take that into my own hands this year and bring some vegan buffalo wings.
I looked online to see if I could find a good recipe for it. When I was doing that, I ran across the site and after I looked through it a little bit I decided to use that site because I have some debt that I really need to deal with this year.
I did find some really great vegan buffalo wings recipes and fixed one of them. I even convinced one of my friends to try one of them that always makes fun of my vegan food and saying that it's really bad tasting. But he said that the wings were actually good. He even ate a few of them! But of course I'm the one that enjoyed the most of them.

I'm maybe sick...

I just had my youngest son 3 months ago. I had him natural birth, no epidural and anything like that whatsoever. They did not give me episiotomy either. The tear that I got from giving birth wasn't so bad that they decided not to stitch it. Anyway, I started my period the other day and I noticed that every time I pee it hurts like hell. I never had any urinary infections before so I don't know if that's what it is. But this only started when my period started. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with me period because (this might sound gross) I used a mirror to look down there and I noticed that there is blood even small blood clots coming out of my pee hole! And every time I pee I just feel that pressure from my pee hole. It's been like this for 3 days now. I guess if this won't go away soon I'm gonna have to call the doctor. I really hope it's nothing serious!

A Simple Valentine's Day Gift...

I mentioned on my post last night that me and hubby had an early Valentines Day celebration. Although we already celebrated, I still want to give him something on the actual day. Valentines is not really a big deal to us but I at least try to give him a card on that day. Anyway, picture above is what I am giving him as a present for Valentines. It is a simple handmade card but made with lots of love and a box of chocolate. I know it's not much but fortunately, my husband is one of those people who appreciates simple things. He always tells me that "It's the thought that counts" not the price of the presents. So I am confident he would appreciate my simple gift to him!

My Baby on His Big Day!

This picture above was taken Sunday right before we went to Church. This was my youngest son's big day. He just looked so adorable on this outfit! Too bad that he can only wear it one time considering how much money I paid for it but it's okay he was definitely worth it! I don't know if I'm gonna keep it or try to resell it online. But I'm not gonna get rid off it right now, I'll wait a year or two then I will decide! Love my baby so much! I'm so glad he's now a Christina Catholic!

A Successful Baptism...

My youngest son's baptism this morning went great. He was just as good as he can be. He didn't even cry when our priest poured the water on his head. In fact, he was awake and was listening to the blessings and was even smiling. Everybody was bragging of how good he was! I am so proud of my little fellow. He had accomplished the first step of being a Christian Catholic! So happy about it! GOD bless him always!

First Day of February!

Gosh, hard for me to believe that we are now in the first day of February. That only means one thing, Valentines Day is fast approaching! Do you all have special plans for Valentines? As for me and hubby not really. That's just another day and not a big deal for us. But I am planning on giving him a little something on that day. It's an inexpensive box of chocolate and I will be making him a handmade Valentines Card sometime this week. I know it's not much but I'm sure hubby will be thrilled to get something from me. After all, he thinks it's always the thought that counts!
