Shopping in Dubai Duty Free, A Must!

This one has first caught my eye.

Starbucks! So before our shopping spree at the Dubai International Airport, we had coffee first. Then looked around and I saw this nice pocket garden, yes inside the airport.

How cool is it? I just had to take a photo of mine.

LOL!

And then, off we went to SHOP. We saw a lot in the stores from gadgets to chocolates to food. Aah, it was shopping haven to the shopaholics like us. (*grin*)

If you are in this airport, better prepare for a shopping spree!

Happy with my New Haircut

I went to the salon a couple of days ago and here’s my new haircut, tada…

IMG_0865

Happy with it. I was planning to make it shorter though but my hairstylist has other plans, I guess. HAHA! The thing is, I have to blowdry my hair EVERYDAY. Oh well, it takes effort to stay fab as they would always say. (*wink*)

What do you think?

Enjoying the Great Weather of Roma

Aaaah, we are on our last leg of my dream trip – Rome and we were so thankful that the weather was so good. Here are our stops during our last day…

We went back to Trevi Fountain to see in during day time.

Aaah, it was still beautiful. ♥♥♥

Our next stop was the Spanish steps. Tourists were a LOT in this place, shops were everywhere too.

IMG_0275

Too bad we didn’t have that much time to check out the designer shops but well, next time?

Next stop, Pantheon.

IMG_0277

One of the most preserved buildings in Rome. It sure was one of the best!

We also made a quick stop to Piazza Navona.

IMG_0278

It was beautiful but too busy for me. I would prefer a more laid back piazza like the one in Florence, but I don’t think we can find like that in a busy Rome.

And, of course for our last stop: The Vatican City.

IMG_0281

The weather changes every now and then so I was still wearing my coat, my every reliable scarf and pair of boots.

Will definitely miss this city!

Shoe Selfieng at the St. Peter’s Basilica

This place is just the most beautiful basilica I’ve ever seen. I can’t help but take a shoe selfie. (*grin*)

IMG_9854

Yes, this is just part of the floor of this beautiful church. Amazing isn’t it? I forgot to ask our guide if they are still holding masses here, I’m sure it would be beautiful.

Here are more photos of the Basilica and will allow you to be the judge to see if it really is “majestic”!

Thinking of the Year 2014 and Home Renovation

Less than two more months to go and the year 2014 is about to end. Wow, I know, time flew by just like that. I wasn’t expecting it. So many things happened, we did a lot of things that the year just happened quickly. Does it mean we were having fun? I surely hope so! We kind of didn’t feel that the year is about to end. We were probably TOO busy with work, school assignments, travel & adventures and just relaxing on weekends. We’ve been busy bonding as a family too. Which is good, right? I’m glad actually. This year has been a challenging year for us health-wise so a relaxing weekend is a treat.

Another reason why we have become so busy for the past few months is the errands that we do at home. We buy groceries at least twice a month. We wake up as early as 5AM to prepare the kids to school. We also help them with their assignments the moment we get back home from work. Yes, it is indeed a busy year, I just realized. But at least we are having fun and for our goals for 2014, we still have more than a month to accomplish it.

Speaking of goals, we have a couple of goals accomplished this year and I’m very proud to say that. We’ve traveled to a lot of places this year like I went to UK and Europe, we went to Pico de Loro and Thunderbird Poro Point last summer and we went on a day trip to Bataan last August. It was fun-filled year! At least we were able to accomplish these part of my goals. As for the kids’ grades, they got very good grades, I’m (again) very proud to say that. They’ve studied hard and it clearly showed in their report cards.

The next goal that we’ve so far accomplished is the home renovation. We were done halfway already but we still got a long way. Well, at least we still have a month and a half to finish it all. For now we are focusing on fixing the appliances. This includes cleanup, yearly maintenance, checkup and more. Now that I found the air conditioning installation Long Beach CA I’m also looking if they can do the cleanup in our place. It would be of big help that they go to our house for the airconditioner services. I don’t want to removed it myself and bring it to the service center! Would you? So the best thing is that they go to my house. With this, I can easily check off this errand that has been in my list every year. And, I was supposed to do this during the middle of the year but I didn’t have time. Oh well.

The service center I found has a website so I can practically inquire from there. I’ve read about ALL their services from their website so all I have to do is decide which one to get. I know sounds too good to be true, but it is! RighTime Home Services offers several exclusive guarantees that are unmatched in the industry. They also have the best professionals doing the work and services for you. I bet they give you the best quality service you can imagine! In dealing with your expensive appliances at home, it is just right that you choose the best team for that. At least with that you are 100% that your stuff are in good hands.

I’ve also read that RighTime Home Services proudly serves the following areas: Los Angeles, Riverside, Palm Springs, Beverly Hills, Irvine, Temecula, Moreno Valley, Banner, Long Beach. Aaaaah, too bad, they haven’t tried in my area yet. Oh well, maybe in the next few months? It is very important that they include my area. Maybe I will write them a letter. We’ll see. I’m sure they will consider putting up a branch in Asia? (*grin*)

Longchamp LM Cuir Collection

Aaaah, another wishlist for me – the Longchamp’s LM Cuir collection is so nice!

longchamp-lm-cuir1

This medium-sized shopping bag can be worn over your shoulder. Its zippered compartment and adjustable handles make it ultra-useful.

The LM Cuir range is distinguished by its exceptionally fine embossing, representing Longchamp’s legendary and impeccable attention to detail.

These colors are so cute. I would love to get one for myself. But, wait, what color should I get?

longchamp-lm-cuir2

Blue? Pink? Neon Green? Or maybe Red?

Now, I’m confused. LOL! These are all good. ♥♥♥

Christmas Gift for the Hubby

It’s more than a month before Christmas and I should be done with shopping for my Christmas list by now. Thankfully I started as early as August, so now I’m into shopping for the family. I’m done shopping for friends and relatives, now I’m thinking of what to give the Husband. Of course it’s a must that it should be related to music since he is into music, still. The jam hub I found online is really interesting so that is the number one on my list to check this weekend. Aah, this is actually my favorite time of the year simply because I can shop and shop without the guilt. Agree!? (*grin*)
