Going 5!

The birthday presents I ordered online for my son's upcoming birthday on the 16th came in today. The delivery man buzzed on our intercom this morning and my nosy preschooler called my attention as I was in the kitchen making his breakfast. He usually follows me to meet the guests outside. Surprisingly this time he didn't show interest in who's at the door because he was busy singing along with Mr. Tumble!

Yes, he has progressed from liking trains with faces (Thomas et al)
, he now appreciates the fast bullet city trains. He is indeed growing up, saying that Thomas engines are for babies! Luckily, they're all from the same maker which is Tomica and his old Thomas tracks can be used with his new fast city train which I got him. I also got a new of tracks that has a railroad crossing on it. I am sure he's gonna go nuts when he opens his gifts.

So the parcels are carefully hidden in the spare room now. I can't wait to see his reaction when he sees them with his birthday cake and balloons! Roll on August 16!

Cheesecake has been one of my favorite desserts. And when I say cheesecake, I meant any kind!

Tomorrow I will try to make one, I am so excited! There are 2 ways to do it, it can be baked or not at all. Since it is my first time, I think it'd be best to do it the easiest and less complex way.

Thanks to the thousands of videos of how to do it yourself in YouTube!


Lol. Finally I was able to personalize my header. Hurrah! I tried customizing my own templates with Photoshop for hours last night, which I find too complicated and eventually I gave up. Very challenging indeed, I might try it next time.

However, I am thankful for the one site I found that gives out customizable headers for free. Creating own headers comes in handy with the help of Smashing Magazine for beginners like me!

My next project will be to make my own template! Good luck to that! Guess, I will be needing the help of my little bro who knows the ins and outs in Photoshop.

The Return of the Comeback

It's been 2 years, 5 months and 6 days since my last entry. Obviously, a lot has happened to my life, it was a huge leap, I can say. I moved to the UK 2 years ago, leaving my boys behind for a "greener pasture" as many would say (although it's literally greener pasture in spring and summer hah!). Having no friends and relatives in a new country, my job has kept me so occupied and the drive to bring my family over was intense. After 11 cold months, 5th of March 2010, my husband and my then 3 year old son landed safely in Newcastle, made me the happiest woman on earth. Finally, I am complete however, it didn't end there because my life has just started. And yes, I have cried hard but I laughed harder.

So now I am finally back. Alive, alert, awake and enthusiastic!


Here in my world, I talk about almost every random things under the sun. Be it love life, a little bit of fashion, immigration, married life, motherhood, technology, nursing career, education, womanhood, entertainment, health, politics (maybe?), my faith in God, family and friendship, name it, I might have it. But then again, depending on my mood.

PS: I have lost all my contacts in my used to be Blog Roll. Being the fan of gifted and talented bloggers who can customize their blog spaces into their own liking, I have tried doing that but unfortunately, the HTML editing has left a mess resulting to total abandonment of the hobby due to the disappearance of all my gadgets! With all my might, I tried to recover them but sometimes it's best to know when to stop.
