Today, he dragged me to the shop even if I was still so sleepy. We ate together in the Quick Bistro in Bilka. Quick Bistro is not really quick (lol). Everytime we go and eat there we always have to wait atleast 20 minutes to get our order even if its just 1 piece of burger. And then we went to the shop to buy a frozen pizza so I can heat and eat it at home later.
I'm happy with the experience today. It's my first time to be a host and it really feels good. Its my first time also to cook for other people other than my husband. I'm no cook or master in cooking but I am very happy I did fine. I was able to pull it off despite the fact that I did not feel well. I hope my visitors were happy with the food though. :-D
A few days after my inlaws arrival, we finally had the time to bond together. Because of the very short time we had I wasn't able to tour them in Davao tourists spots. Most of the time we went to different malls and I really look like a tourist guide with six blonde people around me. Both of my parent's in law, sister in law and her two kids were there.
The day before the wedding, we decided to go to Davao's famous park, the People's Park. We had a wonderful time touring there. My sister inlaws kids were confused and shy because a lot of people were looking at them but I saw smiles in their face while touring the park especially playing in the children's playground. Our tour was very nice and everyone is game for picture taking with the park's statues.
People's Park is the nicest park in Davao, it is formerly known as PTA Ground. The park was opened last December 2007. The four hectare park was divided into several area like the plaza, fun or kids playground and durian dome. It has wonderful landscapes and man made water falls. The park is surrounded with different kinds of flowers and trees and it has park has a lot of unique looking statues made by Davao's very own artist, painter and sculptor Kublai Millan.
Our bedroom is our little heaven in our homes. We like it nice and comfortable. There, we don't only rest and sleep, often our dreams and future plans are created there.
Choosing the right furniture would be very helpful to get the ambiance we want. It is nice to wake up in the morning and smile when we open our eyes because we love the things we see. Shopping for bedroom furniture can be quite tricky though, especially with our busy life and hectic schedule. We don't have time to visit furniture shop anymore. Browsing the internet and look for bedroom furniture online is the most comfortable things to do. It would save us energy and time.
Why not visit Go Modern Furniture's website? Go modern bedroom furniture includes beds, storage beds, bedside cabinet's, chest of drawer's and wardrobes and a lot more in mostly contemporary styles.

Linnanmaki is the biggest theme park in Helsinki. Hubby and I were very excited to visit it since we arrived in Finland. I can still recall the excitement and joy the first day we attempt to went there. While we were riding the tram going to the park I feel like I was a kid again.
We live in the southern part of Philippines. There, I've seen only Ferriswheel on special occassions like Fiesta but I didn't try it. There is a huge theme park in Luzon but it's very far from our place. We would need to ride a ship or an airplane to get there and my family cannot afford it.
When we arrived there hubby and me were confused why there's no people around. We tried to walk going inside to the park and we found out that the park was closed that day. It was kind of disappointing but not until my husband read in one of the paper in the park that it will be open the next day.
So we went back the next day at noon and had finally seen those rides that I never thought I would try to ride. My excitement was very high that I dragged my husband to the ticket booth right away. After that, I told him that I want to try that first roller coaster ride that I've seen. I saw the hesitation in his eyes while I'm dragging him to come with me. There's no much people yet that time so were lucky that we didn't had to wait. The excited me didn't think of anything at that moment but just try that roller coaster ride right away. Fear was the last thing in my mind.
When the roller coaster started to go up it was only then I realized what I got myself into. That moment the excitement was gone and the fear was there. And in just a second I heard myself shouting as loud as I can. I was upside down and going too fast that I'm not sure if my soul was still with me or it was left somewhere in the sky (lol). I was thankful and relieved that the ride lasted less than a minute. It was a quick one but very scary for me. I was dizzy when we were walking looking for the next possible ride. I kept on telling my husband "I made the wrong decision, Bebe. We shouldn't have ride that one".
A few days ago Divine of My Thoughts and me agreed to meet last Wednesday. I asked her if she can come here in our place and bring Rechelle (another friend) with her. Rechelle is not available on weekdays coz of her studies and job so we reschedule the meeting this coming Saturday.
I'm no expert in cooking so it took me 3 days to decide if what dish shall I prepare. I've been to Divine's place last June just before we left for Finland and now, its our turn to be the host. I get nervous when I think about it. I'm worried of my cooking (lol). I've never cook for anyone aside from my hubby. Back in Philippines, my mother and sister always manage the kitchen. I've never tried cooking there not because I don't want to learn but I'm afraid it will be a failure. So I always leave the cooking to the masters. Just for the record, there was a point in my life when I dreamt of becoming a chef (grin) but I guess I'm just to afraid to try it. I was even too scared to practice in our own kitchen so what more in the school. But I've been always a fan of cooking shows and my favorite TV show is Hell's Kitchen.
I've come up with three dishes and two desserts and I hope I'll do it well. We wen't to the Asian Shop today and started getting the ingredients that will be needed for Saturday. I'll update you guys later and hopefully I'll be posting pics.
I didn't talk to him for hours. I was hungry and very upset about it. I didn't made dinner because I thought we'll be eating burger last night. So when I woke up this morning hubby and I agreed that I'll go with him to the city center to go to the asian shop to buy something from there and buy my cheeseburger as well. He treat me to the new restaurant in the train station and then we went to the asian store. After that, I told hubby that I'll be going home but then he reminded me of the cheeseburger. I was so full that I was not thinking about it anymore but then he insist to get my burger. He asked me if how many Cheeseburger do I want and I said 3. He answered back saying " Are you sure?" and I said "Yes!". After that he didn't said anything and we headed to Mcdonalds and order my 3 cheeseburgers. He was guilty last night coz he didn't bought the cheeseburger and so even if he knew that there is no way I can eat all the 3 cheeseburgers he still bought it to make it up for what happened last night.
I went home with 3 cheeseburgers in my bag and a huge smile in my face.

It's difficult with the time difference coz they air US Open at night till dawn here, I wasn't able to follow it. A few days ago as I was watching Roger Federer playing, I was very surprised to see his rank in the screen. I couldn't believe it that he is back at the number one position. I, then jumped into my computer to check Nadal's rank and I was a bit disappointed to see that he's number three. Because of the time difference I wasn't able to follow Nadal's game and I would just check his website everyday for the latest news.
This afternoon, I read an article about Nadal in Yahoo News. After Nadal beat Gael Monfils of France, a male fan escaped security and kissed Nadal on his cheeks. It's an uncomfortable and awkward situation but Nadal said in his interview that "It wasn't a problem. The guy was really nice. He was a great fan. He said I love you".
I like him more for this. I am a fan too though I'm not as wild as the guy who kissed him but I kind of understand what the fan did.
Just a few minutes ago, I checked his website and I was so happy to found out that his now back to No. 2 in ranking and through to Quarterfinals.
When I was young I didn't like Rambutan, not until I was in high school. When it's Rambutan season, I could see a lot of vendors selling it in the streets of Davao City in a cheap price. Each time I buy it, the more I like it and crave for more.
Rambutan is an exotic fruit that is common to southeast asian countries such as Philippines, Thailand, and Indonesia. A ripe Rambutan has a reddish or yellowish hairy skin. You can either cut,bite or sqeeze with your both hands to open it. It is a bit juicy inside so I don't really like squeezing it. It has a delicious sweet taste that you would always want for more when you taste it.
I miss Rambutan, its been a while since the last time I ate it. Since they don't have it here in Denmark I'll just put it in my "must eat" fruit when we will have a vacation in the Philippines.
Before, people who undergone plastic surgery prefers to keep it a secret coz a lot of people doesn't understand what it really means. Nowadays, a lot of people have tried plastic surgery to make their self younger and more beautiful just like hollywood stars.
It doesn't mean that a person who's undergone a plastic surgery means that person has a lot of plastic in his/her body. There are two fields in plastic surgery, the Reconstructive and the Cosmetic or Aesthetic.
Reconstructive procedures correct defects on the face or body. Ear deformities, dog bites, burns, cleft lips are just some of the examples that reconstructive surgery corrects.
Cosmetic or Aesthetic surgery is concerned in improving one's appearance. It alters the part of the face or the body that one is not satisfied. Examples are removing of fats, reshaping of nose, breast enlargement or reduction and a lot more....
One of the advantage of plastic surgery is the ability to correct physical defects. Often it gives the patient self esteem and feel better about their self. After all, all of us deserves to look best.
If you're considering to under go to this procedures try to research more about it and make sure that you're doing it for the rights reasons. Choose your surgeon wisely and try to ask people who you know that has done it before for recommendations.
I told my sister in law about my problem and its from her I learned to Wash, Tone and Moisturize.
I do this twice a day, in the morning and before I go to bed.
Wash - I use facial soap or a facial cleanser for this. I would suggest not to use your body soap when washing your face. Body soaps contains stronger ingredients and it makes your skin more dry.
Tone - It removes dead skin cells, surface oil and dirt that the facial soap or cleanser miss.
Moisturizer - This helps to keep your skin away from getting dry. It makes your skin moist and hydrated.
Now, my skin feels and looks better. I've been using Clinique products. What's good about them is that they have good selection for different skin types and combination. I use number 1, for very dry to dry skin.
While Sarah of A Journey For Life and me were chatting last night she mentioned about LinkFromBlog. She asked me to check it out too. I was bloghopping that time so I said yes, after my bloghopping.

I found out about eroomservice while browsing on the net and they offer modern and contemporary beds . They have a big selection of beautiful beds and bed sets.

They offer Italian modern beds and European contemporary bed frames from world renowned modern furniture designers.
So why not invest in a bed that will last and give you a good nights sleep?

One fine Sunday while we were in Finland my Father in law asked us if we wanted to go to an Agricultural fair. I hesitated when hubby asked me coz for sure I can't relate to it but since my Papa Pertti really insists and everyone is going so I just nod. There, I've seen different farm animals, tractors and other farm materials. While hubby and I strolling around hubby point the big boot in one of the booths there. I was surprise to see its size but I was more surprise to see the brand. The brand is called Nokian and I was wondering if its related to the Nokia company that manufactures cellphones. Hubby said that before Nokia made cellphones they made rubber boots and tyres first. The Nokian boots and the Nokia phones were one company before that split into two. The history of Nokia really surprised me, from rubber boots to cellularphones. Who would have thought?

Shaun The Sheep may not be as famous like the characters in Disney or Warner Bros. but for me Shaun is the best and the cutest among all the cartoon characters.
According to history, the first archaeological cosmetics usage is found in Egypt around 3500 BC during the ancient Egypt times. The ancient Greeks and Romans used make up too. The popularity of cosmetics increased rapidly and today, almost everyone wears them. Even men, teenagers and young little girls would love to apply make up too.
I would like to share this award to my S-H-Y of A Journey For Life and Yen of Heavenly Delights.
It was almost 10 o'clock in the evening when we arrived in Hamina, our destination. It was so nice to meet my mom in law's older brother Anterro and his wife Lilli. We stayed in their place for 2 nights. The day after we arrived everyone was busy coz Mom inlaws older sister is celebrating her birthday and we are not invited (lol). Just the siblings of my mom inlaw and their husband and wife. We were told to go to the place where they were having the party after the celebration to meet my mom inlaws siblings. It was so nice meeting them, just that most of them doesn't speak English and I don't speak Finnish too. Even if its like that, I can see it in their eyes and smiles that they were equally as happy as I am. Everyone there hugged me so tight that I felt so good inside. After meeting everyone there, we headed back to Anterro's place to prepare to visit the homes of the siblings who lived nearby. Hubby, Mama Leena, Anterro and me decided to walk all the way to their home to tour a bit the place while walking, while Papa Pertti and Lilli decided to ride the car. On the way home, Mama Leena, pointed out the place where she lived for some years because their house is far away from the school. I've seen churches, military school and a lot of old buildings. Mama Leena said that during her time, that place is a military place. When she goes to school a lot of military men would whistle when they see her which she really hate. We both laugh of the thought. Later that day, we visited the place and the house where she grew up. Her late brother owned and his wife is now living there alone. We were invited inside and had a little bit of snack. After that, Mama Leena toured me in the house. The house is quite big, well, she has a total of 9 brothers and sisters that time, so no wonder. It feel so good to see Mama Leena's hometown and her siblings. From the very start the entire family has been so nice to me and I'm very grateful for that.
Sorry guys, I forgot to take a picture in the entire trip. I only have this pic, this was taken during our walk on the way to Anterro's home after the birthday party.

Pearl Farm Beach Resort is situated in Island Garden of Samal, 40 minutes boat ride from Davao City. The hotel rooms are made of wood and local materials and is designed by a famous architect in the Philippines. On our first visit there, we needed a whole day to explore the area. One of my favorite area is in the hill, where there is a fantastic view of the sea and Malipano Island owned also by Pearl Farm. Their staff are friendly and their buffet lunch is so far the best buffet I've ever encountered. They have two swimming pools and a jacuzzi and of course the white sand beach. For sports enthusiast, Pearl Farm has a tennis court and and a wide array of water sports activities such as jet skiing, water skiing, banana boat ride, scuba diving and a lot more. I'm looking forward to our next visit there, especially, the buffet lunch (grin)...
Last Sunday, hubby and me decided to finally try the Hard Rock Cafe in Copenhagen. We've been planning to dine there since my last visit here last year but we always end up going to other restaurants (mostly asian) since there are plenty around. I was craving for a burger that day (always) so we decided to have a burger meal. I really like the crew there coz they were so friendly and accomodating, they remind of the Jollibee fast food crew in the Philippines. The place is nice and cozy, they play oldies music which I like. When the burger was served I was so excited to have a bite but I thought of taking picture first so I can have a topic here (lol). The burger is ok but it was dry and I dont like the buns that they used though it is ok. I prefer the burger in the restaurant where we went last week. And also the price is more expensive compared to other restaurants. Though I like their fries.
