Ronald and I went to attend the civil rights of the union of my high school friend chin and his partner ae. It was indeed a very memorable event. All the people who went there were wearing a smile of affirmation that indeed love rules in the heart of the couple. The place was elegantly decorated with pink and red flowers and was serenaded with a band with an exemplary voice. For me it was a one classy evening, not exaggerated, just perfect….. While waiting for our food to be served, I grabbed the chance to take some pictures of the flowers at our centerpiece…. I got an interesting shot that reflected Ronald’s face in the mirror. As a promise, I’ll exclusively use my cell phone’s camera…. So here it is…

Hi there! It’s Duty mode for me now. Sigh! This is the time when everybody else is asleep and we, nurses, have to stay up to watch over and care for our patients. Fortunately our other patient was transferred to another unit yesterday afternoon; we are now caring for one CABG patient. Still at critical state as he has just entered on his first 24-hour immediate post-op. Though his vital signs are fair and stable but we don’t want to be complacent about it because anytime our patient could go on arrhythmia. As much as we would want to doze off, sad to say we can’t. Maybe I’ll just have to wait a few more hours before hitting the sack. That’s it for now. Ciao!

As to how the invitation would look like, I suggested to her that nowadays couples opt to have a pocket wedding invitations, aside from the elegance it exudes, you can incorporate almost all the ideas that you have in mind in one invitations at a cheaper price. I suggested to her to look into the different pocket fold design at the website I encountered that caters all the wedding needs. She asked me why i suggested pockets for her wedding invitation and all I said was it was the PERFECT style for a PERFECT WEDDING.

Spray another baking sheet with nonstick spray; set aside.In a small saucepan, heat sugar over medium heat, swirling pot occasionally, until sugar melts and is amber in color. Stir in hazelnuts to coat with caramel, and pour onto prepared baking sheet.

I visited him after my duty and mind you he is as pale as a paper. He needs blood transfusion. He was having a difficult time breathing and is too weak to exert effort in breathing. We process the things needed prior to transfusion plus purchased the needed antibiotics and nebulization. After almost a week at the ICU he was discharged to the ward. Thank God he is now out of danger....

The venue will be at the Blue Gardens, it is located at commonwealth, Quezon City. For me, the place is just perfect for the occasion. They offer reasonable wedding packages that would suit every couples preferences and budget.
My sister Jessa will be one of the bridesmaid, while Ronald and I will be one of their secondary sponsors. My brother Marvyn will be the Best Man while my cousin Andrew will be one of the groomsmen.
Indeed this occasion is the much awaited event in our family this year!

Planning a wedding would never be complete if the couple hasn't decide on the design of their wedding ring. I have discovered this very informative website that showcases different designs of wedding bands. I personally love the designs under the handmade wedding rings. So for you couple out there, check this site out!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Charter. All opinions are 100% mine.
Life has never been easy nowadays. At one point in our lives, we all feel useless, alone and bored. For moms, especially those who chose to stay at home and look after their kids, life for them seems very routinary and lacks excitement. Nothing stimulates their imagination, nothing interests them anymore. Most of the time, moms lost their sense of worth and eventually they looses their self confidence.
With this concern in mind, I tried to find solution to this kind of issue that mothers, most especially are going to encounter. I read about diversional and occupational activities that would awaken the creativeness within them. But what about the mothers in some cases could not leave home because nobody else could look after their kids or for some other reasons? I tried to check on other activities over the web and i found out this site,learn more at charter.net/ondemand. This interest me a lot because what came into my mind is that the mother and kids could still bond together without compromising the mother's socialization and information needs. Check this site and you will see a wide range of entertainment and news channel to choose from. What is good with Charter is even if you are confined within the 4 corners of your house, you will be able to view the whole world. I also suggest that you would get updates and fun extras on Charter’s Facebook page and be amaze how charter changed the minds and hearts of many people.
