Manic Monday #14

I am late again in posting this entry..but i always believed in the saying, "Better Late Than Never" here I am again...I am just thankful that I am feeling better now compared to the past days. Have a great day to all!

Visit MM site and feel free to join. Have fun answering the questions! Don't forget to visit and read the entries of other participants!

Do you usually wear perfume/cologne? If so, what's your current favorite?
I always put-on perfumes or cologne everytime I go out somewhere. It depends on what the occasion is. If I only go for shopping, I usually wear Victoria's secret or Bath and Body Works body splash or cologne. When going to a party a Davidoff Woman perfume or CK one is fine for me.

What's the last book you've read that you thought was really good? If you don't have one, what looks promising on your to-be-read list?
I read last night some Bible verses and readings. I always try to read it before I go to sleep. Forgive me God if I forget it sometimes or get lazy reading it. I got some books like romantic or love stories, travel books, accounting books, etcetera but I seldom read life is soooo busy!hehehe!

Fill in the blank: I wouldn't be caught dead working in our garden. I always love to do it especially when the weather is good. We had rain today and I can't still go out trying to recover from cough and colds. Thanks God that I am feeling very better now! Cheers!


Manic Monday Q and A

I guess there are still no questions for today's Manic Monday. Since I did not participated in last weeks questions and answers, I decided to do last Monday's Q and A. So here they are!

If you joined the circus, what act would you most want to perform?
I always love watching the acrobatic stunts in the circus. If I have the chance to join it, I want to be an acrobat. But I guess I can't anymore..wink!

Would you generally be overdressed or underdressed at a party?
I just wear the normal casual or formal dress or clothes depending how big is the party. I really don't go on very big parties like the prominent people do. I am just an ordinary person. When my friends or relatives invite me to their birthday party, wedding anniversaries or any party wearing a nice casual or formal clothes is fine for me.

Do you feel that children should be sheltered from unhappiness?
I always agree that children have the right to enjoy their childhood. They should be given the right to be sheltered from happiness in contrary to the question here. Life is too short not to enjoy it! right guys!

Happy Manic Monday!

How was your first day of the June? I hope you had a great one! I am joining for today's MM..Better late than never again! here are the questions and answers portion!

Imagine you're packing a picnic lunch. What would be in your basket?
Interesting question! I want some food, drinks, picnic mat, umbrella, ipod, camera, ...I guess these are the important ones for me...but I still have some more personal stuffs in my bag!

If your life were a weather vane, which direction would it be pointing right now?
I always see to it that I am pointing to the East where the sun always rises. I always see hope in every trials and problems and I am grateful for that.

What's something that people do in traffic that really annoys you?
When they keep on turning their horns so loud, that is really annoying...agree guys!

Monday is almost over! I guess I better finish this question and answer portion of Manic Monday before it's too late! but I always believe in the saying, "Better Late Than Never". Click the logo to join guys! Have a great evening!

If you could completely redecorate any room in your house at no expense to you, what room would you choose?
I wish I could completely redecorate everything for no expense! Since the question here only ask for a room, it means only one room, I believed I would like to do first the redecoration of our kitchen. You can let me stay in the kitchen for the whole day of cooking. But mind you, somebody must help me prepare everything what I need for cooking..The hard thing I always find is the slicing of stuffs like meat and vegetables. How I really wish that our kitchen is bigger but for two people it is just enough. I just want it bigger for parties..wink!

Which hour of the day do you feel goes the slowest?
I really don't feel any hour of the day that goes slowest. But maybe in the morning when it's time to wake-up and I still want to stay in bed. I always go to sleep late which is not good. That's the reason why, I also wake-up late. After I wake-up the day goes fast already because I just have a lot of things to do in the house. Don't forget my online world where I also spend some hours in a day. Sometimes I would say, how I wish there are 48 hours in a day! At least I always try to enjoy every day of my life!

If your birthday could be in a different month of the year, when would you have it?
I wish my birthday is also Christmas day since this is for me the greatest feast of the year where I can always celebrate it with family and friends.

I hope I give you some good personal answers! Take care guys! till next Monday again

Manic Monday #166

We're having cool questions for today's Manic Monday. I hope I'm not late...but I would always say, "Better Late Than Never". Hope you all have a happy Monday! take care folks! here are my question and answer portion. Feel free to also join Manic Monday by clicking the logo!

*How old were you when you learned to tie your shoes?
This is quite interesting!..Honestly I don't exactly remember how old I am to learn how to tie my shoes. If I am not mistaken during my elementary grades...but don't remember exactly because I always wear sleepers during those times.

* *Have you ever snooped in somebody else's medicine cabinet?
As far as I cam remember, I have not done it yet. I don't really open stuffs or cabinet of anybody. Maybe in the kitchen when I help friends cooking something but not someone's medicine cabinet.

* *Who do you think you are? *
I guess this is the most interesting question of all! To answer this question fairly I can say that I am only a traveler in this world. I always try my best to live life to the fullest..trying to enjoy whatever life has to offer...Remember the saying "Life is too short"? that is the reason why we have to enjoy even the simplest thing that truly make man happy..... I can also say that I am nobody but I am proud of who I am. Lastly, I only don't think but I believed that I am created in God's image and likeness and I am thankful and honored for that..

Manic Monday #166

Monday is here again and I am playing the logo and join for free! have a great and blessed Monday!

Which household chore do you dislike the most?
I love doing household chores of any, washing, cooking, gardening, sewing, etc. but what I dislike is ironing. Sorry guys, I just don't like it. It's my husband who iron if he see that my clothes look so crumpled.

What's the best museum you've ever visited?
I have been to a lot of museum in Europe and I am still planning to visit more next time. The best one so far is the Louvre Museum in Paris, France..that was a very interesting and unforgettable experience seeing famous work of arts from all over the world.

It's Star Wars Day today. I've never seen any of the Star Wars movies. What "common" movies haven't you seen?
I have not seen Star Wars for some months is so busy that sometimes I don't have the time to watch movies..hehehe!

Manic Monday #165

Another cool questions for this week..Click the logo to join! have a blessed Monday evening to all!
What's the best summer job you ever had?
I never experience a summer job. But I love it before when I worked in a bank for almost 9 years. I miss it!

Tell me about the worst date you ever went on.
Interesting question! anyway, I don't remember a worst date at all. I never go dating with men during my high school and college days because I want to concentrate on my studies. I only went dating with classmates and tons of friends...and I miss it too! hope to see them again once I go home for vacation.

Do you think the age for a driver's license should be raised (currently 16 here in the U.S.)?
As far as I know getting a driver's license in Germany is 18. I don't think it needs to be raised but young people only need to be very careful when driving. Most accidents here in Germany are caused by over speeding and DUI of alcohol.

Manic Monday #164

here are my answers..have a great Monday to all! click the logo to join!

Describe to me your favorite lounging clothes.
To my understanding, lounging clothes are the one you wear when you are simply relaxing in a lounge or simply sitting in your sofa in your living room...right guys? My answer then is wearing a t'shirt and pajama or a any clothes which are comfortable.

If you promised to never lie again in your lifetime, in what area would it be hardest to uphold the promise?
I believed all people lie and I admit that I lie sometimes..I would say white lies especially if I don't want to hurt the person whom I am speaking with something...for example if a friend of mine cook a food and it taste not so good, I'll tell her that it taste good..not so good of me huh?..but I can be very frank and straight forward..It depends to whom and what I am talking. I hope I will never lie again. I'm trying!

Give a one word answer to the question "why is life worth living".

Manic Monday #163

I am almost late...but I would like to always say, "Better Late Than Never" are my answers on MM #163.
Do you recycle? Why or why not?
Actually we recycled a lot in our house. In Germany, everything about trash or garbage are all collected. In fact each trash is separated from each other. Bottles for example are separated in two huge trash cans in each small village. The clear bottles has its own trash and the colored ones are also separated. Plastics are also separated and are collected once in a month. Papers and cartoon boxes have each own big trash cans and are collected once in a month. Garbage like really dirty stuffs have each own garbage can and are collected every two weeks. We also have a compost pit near our home. if you happen to visit Germany, you can observe that most cities and villages are very clean because of this system of recycling. I would even say in all places and countries I have been in Europe, I can say that Germany is the cleanest so far. The water which we use after taking a bath in the bath tub are use to clean and flush our toilet bowls or during spring time we pour it to the plants and flowers in our garden. There are still a lot of things we recycle at home. It will take me time to write! Just a reminder, we must learn to take care of our Mother Nature before it is too late!

Would you rather be a pirate or a prince/princess?
Of course taking the position of a good Princess is the most beautiful of all...I guess being a pirate is not that good but can be very challenging and adventurous. I guess not all pirates are bad anyway..I rather choose to be a Princess..wink!

Are you into astrology? If yes, how does it affect your life?
Sometimes yes but not all the time. I sometimes read about my horoscope and sometimes it just coincide with what was actually happening to my life but sometimes I don't take it seriously. It really doesn't affect my life that much..just a little!

I hope that I am sharing good ideas especially the first question. Time to slowly bid goodbye!

Manic Monday #162

I am ready to answer the cool questions for Manic Monday #162..

How often do you change your toothbrush?
If I don't forget it, I always change it once a month. I always remember what my dentist told me back home to change it at least once a month. My teacher in the elementary grade also said the same thing. I believed it is a good way of taking care our teeth and for reason of health and hygiene.

What is your favorite item of clothing to shop for?
If you have to ask me about this? I got a lot in my, bags, pants, blouses, t'shirts..Now I already learn more about shopping. We all know that crisis is everywhere and we should already be economically and financially aware of this and get ready for whatever future things that will happen. I only wait till these items are on sale like having winter sale or summer sale. I already got more than enough now. I really don't need to buy stuffs now but if I got some extra budget and I really like the stuffs, I might buy them. I just went shopping today but I got very good deals. Imagine I got around 75% off..not bad..It is not for me presence to bring with me when I go for vacation back home. We have to slowly tighten our belts now and save some bucks!

Do you use social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.)? Which do you use most often?
I use a lot of social medias and blog directories. Some of them are friendster, my space, tagged, facebook, twitter, blog catalog, names database, my bloglog, twitter and some other more. Just now I don't have enough time to update some of them. I use friendster often because it is the first social media that I joined..

Manic Monday #161

I'm joining again today. Better late than never! I almost forgot it since I am so tired today..just arrived home this afternoon from a trip to Paris, France are my sharing!

Do you enjoy brain teasers or do you find them frustrating?
Oh yeah, I love them and I enjoy it everytime I am participating game for the brain!

Do you have any unusual collections?
I collect a lot of things from capodimonte porcelain and ceramic to postcards, stamps, travel books, old and new coins, travel memorabilias, bags, wallets, shoes, photos, figurines, crystal and a lot more...I am not so sure now which is the unusual's up to you..hehehe! ooppsss..I remember something now..I guess it is unusual to collect receipts of the different shops from different cities and countries where I went shopping for my travel memorabilias which I include in my scrapbook..right guys?

What do people notice about you within the first hour of meeting you (other than appearance)?
I guess my personality..being friendly, outgoing and being sociable. I tell you I am very easy to be with. I am witty and humorous sometimes and can communicate well which I think are some of my assets..wink!!

Manic Monday #60

Cool questions for week 60...finally had the chance to update this it is!!
Do you screen your phone calls?
Not really! But sometimes, I don't answer private numbers because these are usually advertisements, lottery or people selling any products, etc...

When was the last time you lost your temper?
I can't exactly remember...but the worst one was July 2008..what a bad experience about it when a person whom you consider your family will betray you..I never expect it. At least I learned a lot of lessons from it!! The wound is already healed but there is still a scar left in it. guess you know what I mean...cheers!!

When you're lost, do you ask for directions?
Oh yes! I usually do especially when there is somebody whom I can ask for direction. It happened last Saturday. I already know the place but I don't exactly know the exact street of the person whom I need to get something. It helped! I also do the same, if somebody will ask me for a direction and if I know it, I am also showing the way. It is a nice feeling if you help even in a very simple way.

Have a great evening to all!!

Manic Monday #159

Another good questions!!
Are you a saver or spender?
Actually I can be both. The bad thing with me..when I see items that are on sale and with very low and reasonable prices, I can't stop myself from not buying it especially if I like it so much... or maybe buying a certain thing that I badly needed, I can be a spender then..If I have money on my pocket, I can be a one day millionaire..hehehe...I can be a good saver too! if there are some future plans where I need money like for vacation or some investment which I just did last week, I can save money up to the last centavo..sounds not bad!! I am hoping and trying to be a better saver.

Do you prefer to walk around barefoot in your home? Socks? Shoes?
Honestly I am a sock enthusiast! I always wear socks even if I am at home especially during winter in Germany. When I am in the Philippines, I also wear socks depends. I love colorful socks though and I have a lot of it. I don't wear shoes at home but only slipper or a sandal.

Do you talk to yourself?
Good question! huh! I don't know how many people talk to themselves. If there are a lot out there, I am one of them..wink! Oh yeah, I talk to myself sometimes but not all the asking myself like these; I'll buy it or not?, Am I going or not?, Is this good or not?, good or bad?...

I enjoyed participating to Manic Monday!! hope you too!!

Manic Monday #158

Happy Manic Monday!! This is my first time to join this meme..I think I will love it is...

What would you do with an extra hour each day?

**I always have a lot of things to do in the house.In fact I never get boring if I just stay in our house...Now that spring time is almost coming, I will surely spend it everyday in my garden...I also spend sometime reading the Book of all books if possible everyday...or simply relax or listen to a cool music..or simply look at our photo album..or enjoy the birds twitting outside.

Do you wear a watch? If so, tell us about it. If not, how do you keep track of time?

If I just stay at home, I don't wear one..besides I own my time and I don't waste a single minute of it...there are also clocks around and I really don't mind of the time especially if I just stay at a lot of things to do in the house anyway..I can manage my time and I know my priorities.

If it was possible, would you want to know how many days you had left to live?

For now, I am enjoying every single minute of my life..Nobody can tell when is the right time for us to leave in this world, but if it is possible to know how many days are left for me to live, well why not to make me prepare for it and will try my best to be a better person when the time comes.....besides only God knows...I am just thankful for now that I am given the privilege to see the beauty of the world around us despite of life's uncertainties and difficulties...I am still lucky to be in this world...I am thankful for all the blessings that I receive in my life....
