Thanks for the treat

Indeed an unplanned happenings are more memorable. I am saying this because last Sunday, the younger brother, his wife, and their son are in the city. We haven’t seen them for almost three months and we missed them. They sent message through phone that they are in the city. They want us to meet at the mall. The timing is perfect because on the same day, the older brother is asking my sister if they could use her credit card. They want to buy new shirt, blouse and pants for the niece graduation day. They do not have cash, so they asked favor from the sister.

We spent an hour at the mall, they treat us to dinner and having our chit-chat. After an hour, it is time to wave goodbye and till next time. They have to go home because it is getting late. They will have to travel for three hours by bus. Yes, you heard it right. They live very far from us that is why we seldom see each other. We are glad that even if it is a long travel, they still find time to visit us. We can’t afford to visit them because it is very costly if we travel at their place. Also, father is too old to travel and easily gets tired. Anyways, thanks brother, SIL and nephew for the visit and the dinner. God bless you more!

It is fun of window shopping online

My brother is planning to buy an equalizer. He told me to look for a certain brand but I have not found one in the four stores I have visited. It is really difficult to find the things which I do not know how it looks It is really tiring going to one store to another. I decided to look for an equalizer online. I am sure I will find the one I am looking for, plus it is less tiring. While browsing for an equalizer online, I saw lots of interesting musical instruments, gadgets, bose power supply, mobile phones, home decors, and many others. It is really fun doing window shopping online. No sweat and less tiring. I haven’t tried shopping online yet, I might try one of these days.

Thank you once again!

The sewing of the kids costumes for their recognition presentation won’t be possible without the kind heart of my neighbor. I know this is a bit late post because I borrowed the sewing machine for like three weeks now and done sewing already. It’s just that I got busy with other stuffs offline and I haven’t found time yet to sit down and write something on my blogs. Through this post I want to extend my warmest thank you to my neighbor who lend me her sewing machine. Big thank you for entrusting me your sewing machine. Though we don’t talk much, I really appreciate your trust in me. It was really a big help because I am able to sew the kids costumes. Also, I earned some from sewing other kids costumes.

In case you wonder about the title, I said once again because this is the second time that I am borrowing her sewing machine. The first time was like four months ago, when I sewed costumes for my nephew and nieces for their book parade at school. I am really thankful for the trust you have in me. These words are not enough of how thankful I am of you. May God bless your and your kind heart. Once again, thank you!

Thank you Lord for the skill

When I was little, I used to watched my late mother sewing dresses for me, my sister and brothers.  Sewing is one of my mother’s skills I must say.  Because I always look at my mother, I grew up drawing dresses on paper and cut it after.  I remember when my friend and I are playing paper doll, I am make my own doll and dresses for my doll because I do not have money to buy paper doll and dresses.  I envy them because their mother gives them money.  But I am thankful then because I develop my skill in making dresses.  I grew up dreaming to be a fashion designer someday.

My dream to become a fashion designer remains a dream because taking the course is very costly.  And my father can’t afford it.  Though I did not able to study the course that I wanted, I am still happy because I got the chance to sew dresses for my nephew and nieces costumes for book parade.  It was a dream come true to sew and make a dress.  Though I do not have any experience in sewing dresses at all, the experienced of watching my mother before is my only inspiration.  I really thought the costumes I made for the nephew and nieces are the first and the last one, but then I was wrong because just recently, I sewed another costumes for the nephew and his classmates for their school presentation.  I am really happy because I will be able to practice more.  The image above are the costumes that I sewed.  I thank God for the skills and my late mother for being my inspiration.  I hope that I will be able to pursue my dreams in making dresses or even be a dressmaker in the future.

It took me some time to find the nice razor

Every time my father needs to buy something, I am the one who buy it for him like t-shirt, pants, shorts, undergarments, soap, and the likes. I must say I know what my father sizes, likes, and he wants. I am like his personal secretary. One incident that I cannot forget was when I bought razor for him. It took me some time to find a good one and he doesn’t like it. Said, that the one I bought is not a good quality. If I have known the edwin jagger razors back then, I would have buy a good quality of razor. Well, it was my first time so it is fine. But the next time I will buy razor for my father, I know now what to buy. The kind that my father would surely like.
