Volcanic Pollution

A glimpse of HONOLULU: See that cloudy thing? that's not fog that's VOG or volcanic pollution, it came from the big Island where Kilauea volcano is erupting and introducing sulfur dioxide to our air.
This is not good for our health, but what I like about this VOG, the sunset is so pretty with so colorful skies, the clouds during sunset is reddish, orange so beautiful.... If I have the chance to capture one perfect sunset photo I'll share it here for sure....


One of our favorite local food "MANAPUA" or meat bun, lots of choices from cha siu(chinesebarbecue) bun to chicken curry sausage and more. Our best choice is "kalua pig" its like "lechon style" in pinas but different way of preparation, they cook the whole pig inside "imu" or underground oven for about 8 hours, covered with volcano stones and banana leaves, then if cook they shred the meat thinly, its yummy.

Work Boots

Hubby really needs a steel toe work boots because as a Contractor he always at the job site supervising his crew and also his working and helping them do the job most of the time. Construction is a tough job and you really need to protect your feet with a good work boots. To his crew my husband recommend Work Boots USA, The brand he trusted for years.

Banana Bread

I have time to bake today so I made this Loaded banana bread, hubby loves its with crushed pineapple, chocolate chips and raisins, thats sounds so much but thats how he likes it. Did you know that banana bread is also loaded with calories too, hmmm thats not good but maybe a slice a day is fine ;), hubby loves to eat banana bread and hot milk cake for breakfast with tea.

Somebody used Hubby's credit card!

Last week hubby called me up from his work, he ask me if we have purchased something online using his business credit line, I don't remember we purchased something online, if we happen to purchased online we make sure we used the other credit card with lower credit line never the business one. He said the bank called him up making sure if he did purchased recently to, netflix and theres another one using his business credit line, and one of the bills reach thousand dollars something! golly! he told the bank he didn't purchased from those online thing they mentioned and they canceled his old card number right away, now his waiting for his new card number the bank is going to issue him.
Good thing the bank called him up and make confirmation, thats a lot of lost if the bank didn't call. We really have to watch our cards and double check our monthly statements, better be sure than sorry. Even we are avoiding online purchased still worst things happens. This Thieves are getting better and better every day, they are much Hi-Tech than us! SO SCARRY.

The Voice of MAC BOOK AIR

I really like the Mac book Air song and last night while watching the news finally discover whos behind the new single of MacBook Air, I like her song and her voice too.

A little of her BIO:
Yael Naim was born in Paris in 1978 to Sephardi-Jewish parents. At the age of four, she moved with her family to Ramat HaSharon, Israel, where she spent her childhood and learned how to speak Hebrew. She served in Israel Defence Forces as a soloist in the Israel Air Force Orchestra. She began her singing career with a part in the musical "Les Dix Commandements" and her first solo album, In a Man's Womb, was released in 2001. She also sang the song "You Disappear" by Bruno Coulais for the film Harrison's Flowers directed by Elie Chouraqui. For her early work she was credited simply as Yaƫl.

I Smashed this TRUCK!!!

"I hit the gas and then the sensitive steering wheel turn a little left to the side of the gate and BOOM!"
Let me tell you a story about this truck! happened last December 07, I'm learning how to drive and hubby decided to get me a Truck, I like XTERA though but I envy women's who are driving FULL SIZED TRUCK and hubby likes truck too so we end up to this Tacoma. We drive it home from the dealer company, and hubby told me that I have to keep it shinny, smooth and without scratch and dings at the sides, he sounds like (kahit langaw ayaw ipadapo sa truck) so cautious, he even drive it with tons of care, even on making a turn he go really slow and make sure everything is fine.
Fine! we arrived home already dark, our carport is good for one truck and his truck was in, he told me to drive the new truck in while he will drive the old truck out, I rolled the new truck slowly and before our gate got a gutter, I'm so slow and cant climb up so I hit the gas and then the sensitive steering wheel turn a little left to the side of the gate and BOOM! eeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkk I hit the side of our gate!!! and still hitting the gas I get so shocked! can't believe I damaged the brand new TRUCK! He yelled at me "how stupid my wife, what did you do?" its ok he can yell at me and call me stupid because I am and he will be the one to spend for the damages.
I was so guilty I don't know what to say If only I could turn back time and make my hubby happy huhuhuhu no body have a good night sleep that night! hubby was so frustrated of me. He spend $2,000.00 from his pocket to fix the damage truck since its so brand new and we don't want to use the insurance to fix it for a reason. I took that picture after we bring it home from the Auto Body shop! looks good as new.
And the Korean shop owner ask me, "how did you do it?" he answer his question too "It's easy yah?" lol so easy to smashed car!. Hubby said "its just a car though, besides damage is done he can't do anything about it" (bait ng hubby ko)lol
He enrolled me to driving school and hilarious things happen...


Arts anagram

Wow This is amazing, I wonder how did they do it.
How I wish I can learn this kind things.

Im Sick

I don't like it when I'm sick, I cant do the things that I want and need to do. Maybe I'm too tired of this blogging thing hehehehe or maybe because of our weather change, It's been so hot for couple weeks and suddenly it rains for couple days. I have fever and body malaise. How I wish I will be well soon arun magkiat nasad ko.

Chop steak!!!

Hubby always told me chop steak is yummy, I though its like the "Bistek Pinoy" and I made him bistek but he complain he said its not like that, so what he did is bring me to the resto and made me taste their chop steak and few days after whallllaaaa here it is, my chop steak and no complains at all....


You have seen this picture at other sites or blog but I want to post it here cause I'm so scared of sharks, I watch Discovery channel or National geographic about shark , according to people who study shark, human are not part of of sharks diet, and maybe they attack human because they mistaken it as seal, whoa I don't want to be mistaken as seal, better stay in shallow water hahahaha...
Subject: Read before you look at the pic

Family on holiday in Australia for a week and a half when husband, wife and their 15 year old son decided to go scooba diving. The husband is in the navy and has had some scooba experience.
His son wanted a pic of his mum and dad in all their gear so got the under water camera on the go. When it came to taking the pic the dad realized that the son look like he was panicking as he took it and gave the "OK" hand sign to see if he was alright.
The son took the pic and swam to the surface and back to the boat as quick as he could so the mum and dad followed to see if he was OK. When they got back to him he was scrambling onto the boat and absolutely packing it.
When the parents asked why he said "there was a shark behind you" and the dad thought he was joking but the skipper of the boat said it was true and that they wouldn't believe him even if he told them what it was. As soon as they got back to the hotel they put the pic onto the laptop and this is what they saw.
(Try and tell me you wouldn't have emptied your entire digestive system right at the point you saw it)

Would you have stayed to take the picture??

Crazy or Amazing?!

I'm not sure if this is true or just graphic, but if its really real, its so amazing job I salute the architect and engineers. I'm wondering it might be costly living in that "Rock House", and bringing your good there might be a little difficult.
How if theres storm?

(ang takaw ng asawa ko basta pinoy food na, ano ba!)his answer was plain and simple "it's so good thats why the tartness and the soy souse is just right, good thing I still left 1 pcs for you lol" (natawa nalang ako coz he loves my cooking lol) he likes it so much especially when its spicy coz I put chillies and lots of ginger on it....

"I'm crying, my whole body is trembling, I'm so frightened that I can't barely move my feet"
This incident happen to me early last month. I don't have any problem with our neighbor they are nice and friendly, next door is an old lady living with her younger daughter and the boyfriend, and the old ladies other kids only come to visit her. After new year I've noticed addition in her house, I'm sure its her son, on his mid 30s, that's the first time I saw him since I came here, I though his just visiting his mom but I saw him more often like his already living with them. During weekdays I'm always home alone until hubby came home in the afternoon and even the neighbors are nice I always lock all doors and windows are closed. One time I was bothered by the son of the old lady, he sing so loud like shouting, then I observe his annoying, I'm sure his a drug addict, I inform my hubby about him so he will be aware.
It was Monday, hubby was home before noon and park his truck by the mailbox, few weeks ago we receive a notice from the mail man to clear the mail box with any obstruction, hubby ask me to move the truck coz hes so busy watching sports on TV, ok then I went out and move the truck, the annoying neighbor is waving at me while I'm reversing the truck, he makes me feel uneasy and stay inside the truck for a while and look at him by the mirror, I finally came out and he told me "that's good", I hurriedly went inside the house and never told hubby about it coz I know he will get furious.
Later on, hubby's friend came and ask him to go with them for a while and they went with my hubby's truck.
Just 1 minute pass by, I went to close the main door and saw our neighbor outside our fence like his looking for me or something, I'm not sure. I lock everything put down the curtains and sit still, I can feel something is wrong, then I've heard him calling "hello neighbor" many times I didn't answer thinking he might go away if I will not respond him, then his throwing little stones to our house, my whole body started to shake while answering him, he said "is your husband there", hello! he saw my husband went with his friends! I ask him what he want and he go "are you selling your surf board?" but hardly understand him, I go "I don't know" and close the window.I'm trembling while calling my hubby, honestly I'm so scared of him, I know his so HIGH on DRUGS, I barely can't understand what he's saying it sound like his tongue is numb and his out of his mind you can see by the look of his face his tripping.
I called my hubby many times and ask him to come home right away, his just few miles away I'm sure, I'm crying, my whole body is trembling, I'm so frightened that I can't barely move my feet, the neighbor still throwing tiny stones and calling me. I have phobia of drug addicts. When hubby came home his still there by the fence, hubby confronted him and told him if you do that again she will call the cops and he go "i stay away i don't want troubles, I just came out from prison, in for 10 years" much more scary!
I know he had BAD intentions, I feel it, my instinct is telling me that's why I'm trembling so hard, I hug my hubby cried so hard and was speechless. After that I only came out the house with hubby I'm so scared of him, I don't have freedom in our own house. I get paranoid watching every little noises outside especially when I'm home alone, poor me.
The family apologized for what had happen. Few weeks later they told us that he was caught in a stolen car and back in prison. Thanks GOD I have my freedom again.

The MISSING Ribs!!!

Usually every weekend I grill or cook good meal, like this one here, it's our dinner last night.
Let me tell you this unforgettable experience of mine last February. It's our Anniversary week at the same time almost Valentines day, that's weekend and for some reason me and hubby can't have our dinner date at any resto, so I've decided to just grill some ribs for dinner and enjoy it with wine. It's a bit dark outside already when I've started grilling, I've marinated about 3 regular size slabs of ribs.
I'm grilling it one at a time, when I'm almost done with the second ribs I keep on calling hubby to get the ribs and bring it inside, I don't know whats his watching and he didn't hear me, I took the cook ribs from the grill so I can place the last one in and took the cook ribs really quick inside the house. When I came back I found the grill and the container where I've place the uncooked ribs empty, I WONDER if I'm already done grilling the rest of the ribs, came in the house and found out that only two ribs was inside the foil, what the heck! Oh well honestly theres lots of wild cat here in our neighborhood and I never noticed while I'm grilling that the cats are spaying at me, it's so dark outside its impossible to spot the cats LOL, I really get furious of the wild cats, they even took the bigger slab!
Can't do nothing but enjoy the rest of our night: lesson learned: keep an eye on what your doing LOL...

Life is Full of Gratitude....

Tagged from JULLIANNA , she reminds me of Maricel Soriano, thx for this tag jull.
Now it's my time to share the things that I'm grateful of...

I'm so grateful of my PARENTS, we don't have so much when I was growing up, but I've learned so many things from them that I valued so much until now, the things that shaped me, not to be the best, but a better person. It's true that family life is full of drama and lots of drama, we are one of it, but we stick together as one family, whatever happens to the world we are family and I can't change it and I don't want to change it.

I'm so grateful of all my trusted friends especially the O's & C's family, they always there to help me back on my feet when I stumbled many times, when I'm on the deepest part of my life, they never let go off their hands on me and never turn their back on me, a friends who always there to listen to me and always there to lend me a helping hand, I thank them so much because their door is always open for me, I consider them as my family, my big sisters and brothers, a mom.

I'm grateful of my husband for loving me as I am and for taking good care of me, For making me happy each day and making me feel secure in his hands, For giving me such importance and so much attention hehehe. and so much more.

I'm tagging mimay, jenn, mylen, jean, jerlalou, shela D.
