Dieting is no fun but I really need to for I lose track of my diet these past weeks because I did a lot of eating and more during our family reunion that happened yesterday. That's what you do when surrounded with family and relatives whom you haven't seen for several years - you think of having a sumptuous meal all the time.

Awesome Home Lighting Collections

posted by Rechie on , ,


Are you looking for home lightings? There is a place online that has all types of home lightings from ceiling lights to wall sconces for outdoor and indoor. I did a long browsing on that online lightings retailer and I found three brands that I found very appealing for my preferred style of a home – modern but with a tang of a historical ambiance.

The Hudson valley lighting collection tops my taste. The lighting collection includes bathroom lighting, chandeliers, ceiling lights, pendant lighting, swing arm wall lamps and wall sconces. All the lightings in this collection are contemporarily designed just perfect for a contemporary home. If you plan to build your modern home soon, hudson valley lighting is the perfect answer for your lighting needs. View some of their lightings below.

To sense some history inside your home, add some classic house lightings from the house of troy lighting collection. House of troy collection though only features two lighting categories; desk lamps and picture lights. The desk lamps can also be used as piano lamps. I love the classic design of this lighting collection. 

If you want to get all your lighting needs in just a place, kichler lighting collection has it all. Check out kitcher lighting collection to see a complete collection of indoor and outdoor home lightings from bathroom lightings to outdoor post lights. The lighting collection as well includes fans with lights, floor lamps, desk lamps, outdoor ceiling lights and lighting mirrors.
Go check these home lighting collections now, you might find some for your home!

TCP: Free Willy

posted by Rechie on


It's time for couch potatoes to gather together and share a favorite movie or a movie that is unforgettable. The theme this Tuesday is Phileo / Friendship Love: Camaraderie and Friendship. 


Fishermen separate a young orca whale (Willy) from his parents and he ends up in a fish bowl at a marina. Meanwhile, a street kid runs afoul of the law and gets caught vandalising the marina, but his social worker gets him off the hook (so to speak) provided he cleans up his mess at the marina. While there, he befriends the whale and teaches him tricks, something the trainer hasn't been able to do. But when Willy is a dud in front of the audience, the marina owner plans some bad things, and the boy and his friends must try to free Willy.
This movie was released on 1993 by Warner Bros. directed by Simon Wincer starring Jason James Richter, the cute boy who befriends a killer whale named Willy. For sure Jason James is fully grown up now. I remember, I first watched this movie when I was younger at our neighbor's for we have no TV back then. I was even beaten by my mother for not completing a chore she gave to me just to watch this movie. The beaten was all worth it for I completed watching the whole movie, the movie that touched my young heart. The friendship between the boy and the whale is so amazing that I so wanted to help him Free Willy while watching. 

There is a 2010 released sequel of this movie, Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove, which I longed to watch. Hopefully, I could rent a DVD to watch it. 

Missed The Mayhem But Up to Chizka's New Leash

posted by Rechie on , ,


I am sad I missed Monday Mayhem yesterday. I am beginning to like that meme to a higher level. I do hope I will not miss it again next Monday. I am also sad that I was not able to talk to hubby. Thanks baby for understanding, or should I say thanks for tolerating? I do love you, I always do. I was just really occupied yesterday because some of my batch mates came over. One of them is our class president back in high school so I had to attend and entertain them since us gathering together at my place only happens once in a blue moon. I had fun bonding with them. Well, I had free lunch, free drinks and I was able to catch up with them so it was really great. 

Anyway, I would like to share a picture of Chizka's new leash. It is not the frail rainbow-colored leash but a  stronger leash this time. I had to buy her a new one for she bit her old leash into strings. I chose red because it is almost Valentine's day. It is just right to give my little Chiz ball some love and to show it is to put her on a leash and take her to a stroll. Take a look at the snap below. 
Here goes my share for Ruby Tuesday today for the first time. I am looking forward to share with you a ruby again.

FTF: Stir Fried Chinese Egg Noodles

posted by Rechie on


I was facing a challenge three days ago and I am proud to say the challenge was quick and easy. I never thought it would be that quick...and easy. The challenge I was saying took place in the kitchen; the fresh Chinese Egg Noodles challenge. I've been bugging my mother to teach me how to cook something with this kind of noodle or we call it pancit miki but she is always busy. So using my taste bud, I deliberately recognized the ingredients from my mother's cooked pancit miki. Then, I cooked my own version.   

It was just all about sauteing and stir frying (as what i did)...easy peasy! So here goes my very first Stir Fried Chinese Egg Noodles on Chicken. 

Happy Chinese New Year! I wish you all prosperity this 2011! (Xīn nián kuài lè! Wǒ xīwàng nǐ zhège 2011 nián de fánróng!) Happy Food Trip everyone!

CC: Our First Sweet Moments

posted by Rechie on


It is time for love, love and love; it's almost Valentine's day. Well, this Valentine's day will be sad for me and hubby because we are oceans apart. Talking online or on the phone will not be enough to quench our thirst for each other but what else can we do? We have to deal the pain brought by the distance, well at least for now. 

So for the topic today at Couple Corner, the first sweet moments.

Our first sweet moments actually was when we started saying "I miss you" online. We didn't say "I Love You" to each other online, just "I miss you." I was shy to tell hubby that I loved him although I wanted to. Hey, I am girl and girls are not supposed to be aggressive. I had my pride...and still have, right baby? The word "I miss you" from him at that time already sounded like heaven to me. I think we started caring for each other then. I felt he cared for me especially when he started calling regularly on the phone before I go to bed for some sweet talk. 

The next sweet moments was when we personally met after 3 months of chatting online. It was Sept. 2, 2006. It's when he said he loves me. Everything I heard at that time was music, sweet music and I saw cheese everywhere. Lol! It is nice to reminisce those moments when I was quite a virgin Rechie who blushed easily with only a single smile from him, who turned head down giggling with his sweet gesture, who wholehearted said "thank you" with his every compliment and who got easily nervous with his gentle touch.

TCP: The Shaggy Dog

posted by Rechie on ,


Good evening everyone! It's movie time, time for all couch potatoes to gather for movie sharing. The theme this Tuesday is Storge / Familial Love: Because We Are A Family. I've seen several family movies but I forgot almost all of it. So I would like to share something that I just watched recently (again), something that touched my heart and made me laugh. I am sharing "The Shaggy Dog", a 2006 film starring Tim Allen as Dave Douglas.
This is one of the family movies we have. I took a picture of our copy for you all.

Comedian Tim Allen unleashes all the outrageous fun in this doggone hilarious update of Disney's comedy classic! The adventure begins when workaholic Dave Douglas (Allen) is accidentally transformed into a lovable shaggy dog. Now as Dave digs to uncover the mystery, this overworked dad wants nothing more than to stop fetching and get back to fathering. But before he does, he's about to discover that being a man's best friend gives him a curious insight into what it takes to be a great dad!
It is a great movie to watch with the whole family. All the fathers out there will surely be touched. I like the part when Tim Allen, form being a family man turned into a family dog and tried to explain to his kids that he's their dad. Other part I love was when being a shaggy dog, he brought a bouquet of roses for his wife outside the restaurant where they are supposed to be celebrating their anniversary. It was a sad scene but you'll be amazed. 

One thing I love about this movie is the dog. I can relate to it for I have a dog and having a dog is like having an addition to your family. I tell you this, you'll get to love your dog. I tried to get rid of my dog many times when I get mad of her pissing and throwing waste everywhere but everytime I look at her sad face, my heart melts. I just can't let her go for it is already love I felt towards her, a love for a family.
