Fab Mommas Online

Here's a thing.. I'm currently open for exchange links So feel free to add mine, and I'll do the same. I'll surely add you on my Fab Links.

I also want to create a seperate page for Blog Buttons / Badges. I specifically would want to badge exchange with the Mommies Online who spends even a little time to read other blogs, not just dropping by lol. The page that I want to create is supposed to be titled as " FAB MOMMAs".

Well....

Fab means fabulous. A Fab Mom doesn't need to be a mom who is physically beautiful or gorgeous . It's all about the attitude, confidence, determination, sincerity, and being true. Of course, Being a mom involves a lot of tasks (simple and hard) but having a positive attitude of still feeling good about thyself afterwards make thee a Fab Momma... and that is YOU!

To apply...


Be sure to leave your URL =)

On accessories



I love accessories.. next to bags, shoes and clothes. I have them in different types. WHen it comes to jewelries, I love ethnic, blingies, swarovskies, white gold, and Silver sterlings. I have yellow golds which are given by my MOM, but I rarely wear them. Hindi ko bagay eh.

Among all my accessories, these are my favorite...


Most are from Tiffanys which I bought when I was single. Some of them were gifts.


Silver sterlings, I know, is not everyone’s cup of tea. Apart from a general love of sterling, when it comes to personal accessories, I naturally lean toward silver and white gold.

I almost forgot that I have watches coz I rarely wear them nowadays. These two are my most favorite.

The Rolex which was given by my late stepfather on my 24th birthday.. that's why I treasure this so much, not because it is a Rolex.

You may wonder where my Hermes watch is... I actually don't remember where I put it. All the while I thought it was inside this box. I just didn'T have time to look for it but sure I will.. It's also my favorite next to that Rolex because that was the first gift given to me by my honey when he followed me in the Philippines back in August 2005.

Of course, the most important of them all is my engagement ring..

ooppss sorry if its blurry... I took this shot 2 years ago using my old camera

I didn't know that diamonds should have their Diamond Grading Report to document and ensure its unique characteristics.. ou know the 4 cs.

Yakiniku


My favorite dish eversince I came here in Japan... I think all pinoys in Japan love this..




Fresh liver =) Some of you may not like it because it is raw, but i tell you, it's incredibly delicious... And healthy too..

source wikipedia

Yakiniku (焼き肉 or 焼肉), meaning "grilled meat", is a Japanese term which, in its broadest sense, refers to grilled meat dishes.

In a yakiniku restaurant, diners order several types of prepared raw ingredients (either individually or as a set) which are brought to the table. The ingredients are cooked by the diners on a grill built into the table throughout the duration of the meal, several pieces at a time.



random...
Look how my baby pre-occupies herself while we were waiting for our order.. and look how yummy my liver sashi is...




on my favorite dress...


I love dressing up especially when I was still single but I actually don't have any particular favorite dress or cloth.

However, I've always been more into skirts and shorts. I have a closet full of those in different style. I may not have those long legs like the supermodels, but I guess I look prettier with skirts lol.



BUT then, you would rarely see me wearing mini-skirts nowadays.. well atleast for now =( I don't think I have a single one that looks good with me right now because my legs are not as skinny as before girlemo..

You would probably see me wearing jeans, peddle, or sports pants =(.
Gosh I really really need to be more serious with my diet. Miss ko na mga damit kogirlemo

On Shoes



I wear a kind of shoes depending on my outfit.
But I think these are my current favorite because I wear them most of the time. Actually, I wasn't into flat shoes / sandals before I got pregnant... But now, Im more comfortable with sneakers and low heels foot wear.



Too bad it's getting cold over here =( I gotta take out my boots and won't be needing to wear those sandals until I get home to Philippines late this year... Sana matuloy kami (crossing fingers)

More lovely shoes from girltalkers Here.

On Scents...



Im so late for the last week's Girltalk's task =(

Talking about perfumes.. I so love scents that smell sweet. I used to collect perfumes when I was single. I wear each of them depending on my mood.

When I got pregnant, I stopped wearing perfumes and switched to colognes instead. I got used to it, and gave away all my other perfumes. Besides, colognes are cheaper lol.

These are the current scents I have in my dresser.

The 2 big bottles in the middle are my current favorite. So sweet and not too strong for my baby. The rest are presents that I received this year. They all smell good especially the Rumeur (far upper right bottle)

Anyway, my all time favorite was D&G's Light Blue, Clinique's Happy and Heart, Davidoff's Cool water for women, and Elizabeth Arden Green Tea. They all remind me of different things and happenings in my life, certain events or people. Good and wild memories indeed.

I know you know what Im saying. I'm sure you too have that certain scent that brings back good (or not necessarily bad) memories.

If I am going to give advice about perfumes or scents, pick something that is special. When people smell your scent, you want them to be reminded of you, and know that only you have that special scent.

Basically, it all depends on your personality.

I ♥ BAGS



I won't let this week pass without posting my latest favorite task of the week, Girltalk.

I love bags, that's one of my biggest weaknesses (on top of shoes and accessories lol) especially the COACH collections. If only I could have every new collection, I would be grateful, but of course I'm not that dumb and rich to buy all those.. just having few is enough. I actually started to love Coach when I chose to move and have a career here in Tokyo. Can't just fight the temptation of those beautiful bags being displayed in the windows. I worked so hard so I thought it was ok to treat myself with beautiful bags sometimes. They were one of my real sad absorbers.

my favorite


Of course, now i don't shop for signature items anymore. That was before when I was lonely and working =) Im now happy and married lol. I als0 had forced myself to stop collecting bags because money nowadays is hard to earn. But still, Im wishing to have atleast one Gucci and Chanel bags someday. It' s just a wish.

Anyway, another set of beautiful bags. They were presents from my friends and loveones. I feel lucky when I see them... How could they give me something like these lol.

gifts for me

And lastly, these are the bags that I often use since I always bring my baby with me/us wherever. They have lots of pockets, designed for baby stuffs.

everyday bag

I love all my bags.. none of them is being neglected =)

More beautiful bags here from the fabulous girl talkers.

Bistek




Showing off my own version of Bistek. JARAN!!....

All I did was marinated the pork strips with calamansi, soy soy sauce, and peppers (black pepper, and salt and pepper)... sautéed the onion rings for a minute and sat aside... fried the potato strips in the same fry pan that I used for sauteeing... sat aside... sautéed garlic and stir fried the pork strips (not the same fry pan of course) for 3-5 mins, poured the marinade... let it boiled. That's it.

Honey loved it. He even asked for an extra rice lol.
