You Are Muesli



You are broad minded and cosmopolitan.

Your tastes are varied and numerous.



You like many types of things. You definitely aren't picky.

The only thing you can't stand is being bored.



You're the kind of person who can't have the same breakfast often.

Your breakfast is unpredictable, unique, and very varies.

What Kind of Cereal Are You?

Blogthings: Our Quizzes Weren't Written By Bored 12 Year Olds


Funny how this sound but I don't even like cereal. These days, I jus have muffin toast and coffee - enough to get by to get to work.

Everyone has been pretty busy in my family. Mcj has been working night shifts most of the time although, it's not per se. He just wants to finish his task - sorting out stuff in the workshop that has been left un-attented for several years. That's a good thing.

The Little Boy is a big guy now. Pretty busy and active. And I have to be the same lest, he'll just eat when he's bored. Good thing he likes doing puzzles - a blessing when it's rainy.

Can't complain. We've been meeting people and becoming friends with them. Exciting. Blogging has been pretty good lately, just like now that I have to do apidexin assignment. More shopping money.

We're happy camper, as usual.

It's been pretty quite at work lately. Did a few training here and there and some customisation but I mostly focused on the testing.

I'm using a new machine now with Windows 7 which at first I don't really appreciate. But eventually, liked. I also have Office 2007 which for the same reason, I detest at first. Heck, I can't find my favourite buttons. It was really boggling as I have to ask my colleague every time I want to do something that I can't find in the most conventional way. This may sound over-acting but it seems that hair growth shampoo was necessary for me for the few weeks that I was getting used to the new OS.

People come and go in the office too. I mean, some left and some joined. I suppose, there has to be turnover for a change.

When I get mushy. It's the time when I am alone and get to listen to music that I like un-interupted. You'd thought, I should do something else. But this makes me happy and sad at the same time. Sad but not lonely. If you know what I mean.

This particular song is really very touching. There are several revivals but the original is always the best. Nothing can beat that. Hearing songs like this before going to sleep beats the need for the best acne treatments.

I have to get Jim Brickman's album with all my favourite songs.

I met a new friend today. She's the wife of the guy who has some busines with Mcj. She's a Filipina and he brought her with him today. I was actually at the shops and Mcj rang us up. I had to cut my shopping short and rush home. We got to know each other a little bit. We exchanged numbers and they invited us to stay at their place for the Flower Carnival in September. I was actually planning for us to go to Toowoomba but I checked accommodations online and they are all fully booked. But I think, we would be able to go now that we have a new friend there. Hopefully.

As always life is easy unlike looking for atop diet pill. They are good people and I'm sure we'll have lasting friendship with them.

to me.

Just last week, Mcj bought me half a terabyte external drive and wireless router so I can blog anywhere at the house. Unfortunately, I can't have a decent signal at the house so I still stay in the office sans the cable. But the external drive is really handy. I can take the important files anywhere and can access it especially the photos. They are my essentials when blogging.

We're still trying to figure out how to improve the signal of the wireless connections. We don't have extended service plan but I'm possible we would be able to find a solution.

You Have Your Priorities in Order



For you, your career is usually your number one priority. You don't mind having things to get done... as long as they don't pile up on you. You attend to almost every priority in your life. You don't neglect much. You want thinking to be a high priority, but you don't take enough time for yourself.

The Priority Test

The First Rule of Blogthings Is: You Don't Talk About Blogthings


I can't say that I really prioritise stuff in my life. I know what's important and that's what that matters. I'm very flexible that I do whatever has to be done. I suppose, I don't have strict schedule or organisation that I have to adhere but yeah, I get things done before due date. I don't like being asked to finish something that should have been done like getting caught up in mortgage life insurance rates. It's just not me. Plus, I lead a very simple life so getting things done is easy.

1. When was the last time that you felt your world got turned upside down?
The first week after giving birth, almost 3 years ago.

2. Should the United States do more to help its own citizens before helping people in other countries?
I believe yes, every country should do that.

3. What was something you memorized for school and still can recall?
Too many to mention here. :)

4. With what types of people do you tend to associate?
Optimist, humble, fun-loving, not judgmental, spiritual.

5. Besides blogging what is the last creative thing that you've done?
Does cooking counts? I did often lately. I tried cross-stitching but did not finish any of them.

6. In nature, what outdoor activities do you enjoy the most?
Walking, picnic, swimming, playing with my one-and-a-half men.

7. When was the last time that you had a great belly laugh?
Last night.

8. What kind of fashion-sense attracts you?
Unique; simple; loud - depends on my mood.

9. What traits in others turn you off?
Snobbish (feeling high and mighty), scheming, pissimistic, judgmental.

The questions make me think about myself, about the people that I associate with. They're reality and personality checks. Thank you, Sam.

You Have an Extremely Active Imagination



Your mind is vivid, lively, and colorful. There is a lot going on in your head. You have the ability to make pictures and movies in your mind. You are extremely visual. Your creativity knows no bounds. You don't put restrictions or limits on your thoughts. You have a gift that other people wish they had. So exercise that imagination as much as you want!

How Active is Your Imagination?

Blogthings: 100's of Fun, Free Quizzes and 3 Stupid Ones

I could say that this has some truth to it. And I am thankful to God for that. I imagine a lot because I also believe that if you see things happen, it will happen. Power of mind. I seldom get bored either - I can't remember the last time except of cours when I was playing angry bird in my phone that I got bored waiting for the intervals, I stopped. I love reading, watching and re-watching movies, going for a walk, taking photos, blogging - reading about California car insurance.. and so on. Oh, one important thing, shopping. I mean who can get bored now a days? There are just so many avenues of recreation that you'll have a fit choosing.

You Love to Talk About Relationships



You love to talk about people you know. You're not exactly a gossip - you just think a lot about your friends and family.

You're likely to be completely up to date on what's going on in everyone's life. And when someone has good news, you make sure and share it.



You also spend a fair amount of time dissecting relationships and analyzing people. You are always trying to better understand the people you're closest to.

Of all the types, you are the most social. You have a lot of people to talk to and to talk about!

What Do You Love to Talk About?

Blogthings: Learn Something Surprising About Yourself


This is a bit further from the truth but I could say, I do sometimes only to my close friends. Well, what can you not talk to your friends anyway? Maybe, getting a blue acne light as you might be scared of being ridiculed of being vain? I suppose so, but in my case... I learn a lot talking to people about relationships as I'm gauging and at the same time learning the areas that I need to improve on.

I mentioned in passing yesterday to go to the Markets. One of our friends who owns soft-serve Ice Cream vans go there. We went there late - obviously. And the first thing we did was went to the van and bought this.


We wander around without aim until I remember that I want a wind chime, antique style. We strut everywhere... and I thought, I would go home empty handed. The Tatapilla had a very long ride with the merry go round.


And we wander more and I found a modern windchime so we bought it even if it doesn't fit my criteria. Lo and behold, I found another shell wind chimes that i really like but because we are short of cash, promised ourselves to buy it next time we go there (the same shop that sell these).

We went home exhausted from walking (seems like a good way to quick weight loss) but happy. We have something for each 3 of us.

It's the third year that I have celebrated this very special day for all super special Mums. My little boy was coached by his Dad to wake me up and give me cuddles with "Happy Mother's Day, Mum, I love you too". He said, we bought you flowers (which I know they didn't but because of the hype of flowers at the shop yesterday, he was thinking they will). I said, did you? He said, not yet. Daddy said, they'll pick up flowers from the garden.

And this is what I got. And I love it from the bottom of my heart.


As for gift department, we went shopping yesterday and today, and we got shoes for me and a bicycle and several toys for the Little Boy. They are all my pressies. Lol. No best wrinkle filler though. I reckon, I don't need that yet.

For motherly advice for Mommy Moments:

Lead by example because Monkey see, monkey do.

If we are in a different circumstances, I would love to receive this pot of flowers - but we are inundated with plants and I just can't take care of it properly.
