Photohunt # 3: Furry


posted by Rechie L on ,

Since i have no furry clothes i decided to just post this picture of doggies. It's already hot here in the Philippines to wear hot furry clothes. So here are the photos that I hunted for this Saturday's photohunt theme.


This is my sister Cheep with her little furry puppy.
She asked the puppy from her classmate.
This is again my sister with the Puppy's mom.
My sister was just saying thank you to the puppy's mom
for giving her the puppy.

This dog right here is not the puppy's dad.
He is owned by our school's owner
I took this picture at our school cafeteria.
He is a very good dog, you can see he is patiently waiting
for his order at his table.

Have you ever?

6 Things People Don’t Know About Me


posted by Rechie L on ,

Wow, i guess it's time to unleash 6 secrets about me now. Just six. LOL. I got this tag/meme from my ever dearest blogging Amiga, Ruthi. Thanks a lot dearest friend for this tag. You are one of my ever dearest friends here in the blogosphere and thanks for counting me in your friends' list. Sorry for posting this late anyway. I was really busy studying my lessons for our Midterm examination.


The Rules:
1. LINK TO THE PERSON WHO TAGGED YOU
2. POST THE RULES ON YOUR BLOG
3. WRITE SIX RANDOM THINGS ABOUT YOURSELF
4. TAG SIX PEOPLE AT THE END OF YOUR POST AND LINK TO THEM
5. LET EACH PERSON KNOW THEY ARE TAGGED AND LEAVE A COMMENT ON THEIR BLOG
6. LET THE TAGGER KNOW WHEN YOUR ENTRY IS UP

So, it's unleashing time: Here are the 6 things/facts that some people here in and out of the blogosphere don't know yet about me.

  1. I have false teeth. Yes, my four front teeth are not real. I can still remember the days I couldn’t smile. LOL. I was fourth year high school when I decided to get my four front teeth pulled because they were decayed and caused me a lot of pain. I’ve been having these false teeth for 5 years now.

  2. I wear eyeglasses…only when I need it especially when I am reading or in front of the computer. I don’t wear my eyeglasses outside the house except when I am driving. I don’t even wear my glasses in school (I don’t like it when they call me “grandma”) because you know, if I take my false teeth off with my eyeglasses on I can’t blame them if they call me one.

  3. I have a tattoo. I just got this tattoo last year before our wedding. It was a long thinking if i would go for it or not. I was quite afraid of the needle and yes the sound of the machine was damn scray. You may ask what is my tattoo design, well i am thinking of making a post about it. So, check it out. Keep visiting. Lol.

  4. I was an illegal drug addict at the age of 17. As a teenager, i was very curious about that kind of thing. I am glad i was able to stop it when i met my husband, which was at time my boyfriend and I was 19 years old. Now, it's a big NO to me. My younger sisters are looking up on me and i don't want to be a bad model to them.

  5. I can sing. It took so long for me to realize that. My husband is my number one fan. LOL. He is the one who kept telling me i have good voice everytime i sing on and off the microphone.

  6. I never on time. This is worst thing about me and is my very very big problem right now. Even if i try to be early I just can never be on time. Never. As in never and it frustrates me and my husband.

I am sharing this tag with: Vhing, Demcy, Madz, Chindy, Umma, Cacai, Femikey, Rosemarie, Chubskulit, Mommyelvz, Elizabeth, Elda, Tey, Kcat, Shy. Please come and grab this and let's unleash some secrets.

Instructions:
This is a prayer tag and link for the Philippines and the Filipinos. You are enjoined to utter this prayer for nine (9) consecutive days and to tag as many bloggers as you can with preference for Filipinos. But only bona fide Filipinos shall be included in the official registry of Filipino bloggers in this blog. Each time a new blogger makes a link, be sure to send me an email of the entire link through melalarilla@gmail.com so that the official list will be consolidated in a master list in this blog. For our Muslim brothers, you may make your own special prayer formula but you must never deviate from the formula of this entire post.

Prayer
Dear heavenly Father, we consecrate to you our beloved country- the Philippines and all the Filipinos around the world. We acknowledge Father that apart from You, we can do nothing and it is only your divine providence and grace that can unite all Filipinos as one nation. We therefore humble ourselves before your throne. We confess all our sins to you individually and collectively as a nation. Forgive us our sins Father and wash us clean by the precious blood of Your beloved Son- Jesus Christ. Mend our wicked ways and let us experience a strong and genuine spiritual revival for ourselves and for our country. Let the Holy Spirit imbibe us with power, love and wisdom to return to Your path of holiness and righteousness. Bless our country, heavenly father. Bless all Filipinos wherever they maybe. Let progress, unity, harmony, stability, justice, peace and prosperity reign in our country.

Bless our leaders, from the President down to the lowest Barangay official. Touch their hearts that they may serve our country with all honesty and with love and integrity. Bless our children and our future generation. And bless us all Father in all aspects of our lives. This we pray to You heavenly Father, in the mighty name of Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.

I recieved this TAG and LINK idea from VhingF of Survivor:the REALITY of my LIFE. Thank you very much Ate Vhing for including me in your prayer by sharing this tag to me. It is a great honor to be included in this tag. More Power to you and God BLess.

Honest Scrap Award


posted by Rechie L on

2 comments

I got a tag yesterday from Baby Samantha and Betchay. Thanks a lot cute Samantha for including me as one of your awardees of this Honest Scrap Award. I do appreciate it. So, here it is.
Honest Scrap Award Rules:

When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows he or she is real.

Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends. Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog.” Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on!

Here are 10 things about me:

I got married at the age of 21 to an American guy. We just got married last year, May 18, 2008 after a year of engagement.

I am now 22 years old. I just turned 22 last December 22, 2008. I’m getting older.

I have experienced the undesirable life of having a broken home when I was 16.

I am sometimes irresponsible especially to my studies. I am naturally poky that’s why I always arrive late in school or should I say I am used to Filipino time. I don’t study my lessons, I don’t make assignments and I only stepped inside the library once this semester.

I am currently addicted to blogging. I get more irresponsible with my studies now because of blogging.

I love to sing. I always dreamed of being a singer since I was young. I used to sing while washing the dishes. Oh, it was my favorite moment. I used to sing with my 2 lovely sisters and even named our group as Three Chies.

I am an outspoken person. I say what I want to say. I speak my mind and speak the truth. I may be blunt but in a good way where my bluntness can help.

I ask help whenever I need it. If there are things that I want to learn, I ask. If I can’t do something I want to know after third try, I ask.

You can always have a friend in me. I am a friendly person. People can always count on me whenever they need me as long as I can be of help. I will not hesitate to help my friends and give advices for as long as I can.

I love my family above all things in this world. They are my priceless treasure and I can never trade them with anything in this world.

I am passing this award to: Cacai, Femikey, Rosemarie, Tripzibit, Mabel, Vhing, Ruthi.

Get Rid of BedBugs

We are all aware what bedbugs are. They are small nocturnal insects that hide most often in the mattresses where they can easily find their source of food through sucking human blood. Though they aren’t dangerous but their bites are quite annoying and itchy and may sometimes cause skin irritations and rashes. There are common ways on how your home can become infested with bedbugs. We often acquire bedbugs from our travels and in the hotels; they crawl into the luggage and take them back home. Sometimes we are picking bedbugs by bringing home infested furniture and used clothes. When you are living in an apartment and if the people living next door have an infested home, bedbugs crawl through the small spaces between the walls to your home. Because they are nasty little creatures, we cannot even see them.

As much as possible let’s find ways to get rid of them and at the same time get rid of bed bugs bite . There are many ways; one is cleaning your room everyday especially the mattress. Though not all the time this remedy works, it is still advisable. To get more information about bedbugs, check out bedbugs guide and learn more about what you can do to exterminate your buddies dwelling right in your mattresses.

Bye Sarah


posted by Rechie L on ,

1 comment

Yesterday was a sad and a happy day. It was sad because we finally bid goodbye to our 6 months old Sarah. She is too big now for our little home. She needs a bigger place, a bigger ground to play on and other dogs or buddies to play with. For 4 months that we have been jailing her at our small backyard, she missed playing outside with the other dogs. Though it hurts, my husband and I have decided to give her up to our “Fil-For couple” friends. The thought that made us happy is we did it for her sake. I know she is in good hands right now and I know she is going to have everyday fun chasing and playing with other dogs in there. Anyway we can visit her from time to time so I guess we won’t miss much her growing up.

Today, we are going to visit her at our friends. We do miss her a lot already. We will also check if she's behaving herself there. I know how spastic she is especially after bath.

Wow, i can't believe this. I never thought i am that addict into blogging. My God, but it's alright. I guess I don't need to be ashamed of that fact...haha. I have 6 blogs so far...which i always find time to update as much as I can. Sometimes it's real hard to divide my time with my blogging hobby and school and the household chores. I admit that blogging is one of my responsibilities now. Though nobody forced me to shoulder that responsiblity but i choose to shoulder it. So maybe i am that addict to blogging now then. I got this idea from Ate Madz. I then take the chance to test what is my standing with this blogging thing. Thank you for sharing this Ate Madz. Here it is:
