Update

Lately, I was busy of my job. Thankfully we have a lots of projects coming in to keep us working regularly. Sometimes I don't even notice the hours runs so fast, which I really like. I hate to stay in the office killing the time, waiting when it's time to go home. I hate it! Well, maybe because I'm a workaholic person, I like when I have something to do, to keep me up. Also, I am busy making my itinerary for my trip. Looking for tickets, places to go, and making final dates with my GFF makes me going crazy! :) In fact, I also find and buy a tickets for her too. For so many days I am stressful because of this, but now finally we are all set and done which makes me happy. Yes, I am taking a trip to West Coast soon. My other GFF just got a visa, she will move here in the U.S, and I'm going to attend her wedding. Plus, my best friend and I will going to see each other at their place for the first time since we moved here (USA). I am pretty much excited for this trip, although I felt worried because my husband is not coming with me even though I got his approval. He is very supportive to me, I am so lucky to have him. I love him.:)
Monday-May 26, Memorial Day was holiday. Husband and I decided to have a picnic at our local park, we invited mom, grandma, his friend and his kids to come over with us. We had such a good time there, we enjoyed our day talking, laughing, eating, and relaxing. I caught some images to take photo too..

L.A Police Gear Designs

I think the fashion industry are so brave enough to create a police gear designs to use not only for the police officers/officials but also for the ordinary people. I'm talking about the camouflage BDU Pants, 5.11 Tactical pants, Tactical Boonie Hats or T-Shirts. The designs are pretty cool!

MOTHER'S DAY

Its funny because my younger sister message me by greeting Mother's Day. And this afternoon when we picked up my mother-in-laws they also greeted and handed me a beautiful flowers for today's Mother's Day. They said I deserved it because I'm a good mother of Stormy our dog. Oh yeah, I'm Stormy's mother, I forgot. :) So, for today's celebrating Mother's Day my husband and I treat them to watch a movie "Iron Man", and I cooked spaghetti for our dinner. A simple celebration makes simple people very happy, that's what we feel today.

I Cook Like My Mom

I always remember when my mother's cook good food for our meal everybody (except when shes sick or out of town). Our relatives, friends and neighbors knows her natural talent in cooking, in which she is known. Technically my mama didn't teach me her cooking techniques to me because I didn't show her my interest in cooking until now. The last time I goes home to visit them my mama cook food for me. Am I spoiled? Nope, I'm not. I just like her food, I always gonna miss it. But now that I'm married and living away from her, I feel obligated to cook not only for myself but for my new family here. Once my mama told me that if I get married, I should have learn to cook to feed my future husband. Indeed, I was learn. Because if I don't, I couldn't eat the food I like or my husband likes unless if we don't want to save money and to eat out everyday. That's ridiculous! I know.. So, yeah I cook now. I love it, I like to be in the kitchen all the time. Perhaps, its in my blood that I can cook as like my mama even if we didn't go to school to learn for it. It's good because I got praise when they ate my food, they said its good and delicious. I don't care if they lied but I'm happy cause they eat it. Hehehe.
Well, today as to celebrate Mother's Day I cook Filipino style Spaghetti for the first time in my life. I used to prepare spaghetti for my husband but the sauce is instant that I bought from the store. Not this time, I cooked the sauce from scratch. It turn out fine, and tastefully good, my family likes it. I'm so proud of myself and thankful for my mama who is the legend cooker of my families.

Arnel Pineda Is Journey's New Lead Singer?

I was browsing Youtube the other day to watch ABS-CBN ASAP show latest videos, and was found the news about Arnel Pineda. It was quite interesting because they mentions about American biggest band in 70's, 80's Journey who sang the hit songs Open Arms, Don't Stop Believin and many others. If you are 80's fanatic music I'm sure you will know what I mean. Actually the Journey's music are classic and still up until now on the air wave, and many people still listening on their music including me. Anyhow, Arnel Pineda is not so famous in the Philippines music industry that is why he is not familiar to me. The story behind how he became part of Journey's band as a lead vocalist today is unbelievable. It starts when Arnel's friend from his local band The Zoo uploaded their gigs on Youtube. While in the other "planet" Neal Schon the lead guitarist of Journey looking for their new lead singer.
Read below how Neal Schon tell the story on his website Journeymusic:
“I was frustrated about not having a singer,” explains guitarist Neal Schon, “so I went on YouTube for a couple of days and just sat on it for hours. I was starting to think I was never going to find anybody. But then I found The Zoo and I watched a bunch of different video clips that they had posted. After watching the videos over and over again, I had to walk away from the computer and let what I heard sink in because it sounded too good to be true. I thought, ‘he can’t be that good.’ But he is that good, he’s the real deal and so tremendously talented. Arnel doesn’t sound synthetic and he’s not emulating anyone. I tried to get a hold of him through YouTube and I finally heard from him that night, but it took some convincing to get him to believe that it really was me and not an imposter.”
To me he is so lucky, unbelievably lucky! Infairness he's got the talent, in fact his voice is similar to Steve Perry the original vocalist of Journey. I hope Steve Perry and his fans will not feel bad. Right now The Journey has a new album title Revelation and it will release this coming June 3.
