Fire ANTS!

Yuck! Last week I noticed that by my chili plants ants are building their home like 3 different kinds of ants, tiny black heads, reds medium size and fire ants ewww. I complain to my husband because these creatures are eating my chilies! For two days I keep complaining until he move his ass and spray insect killer around the yard and the house. Few days ago I saw one big ants crawling around the house, then the other day the husband saw another giant ants and today I saw plenty dying fire giant ants by my office, yuck I hate this giant ant maybe they are poisoned already because the rest was dead and one is dying. I went around the house again and spread fire ants poison. I don't want be bitten by this giant creatures.
Why this insects are coming out during summer, a lot of insects, are they joining the humans enjoying and having fun during summer?

Flying Termites


One thing I hate during summer is the flying termites! Although we have electronic insect killer outside at the back of our house but sometime there are so many attacking it, almost every day when the sun is down and the insect killer having this like frying or electrocuting noise, I know already that the flying termites are attacking, I'm wondering where this insect come from they are so many like thousands attacking and dying almost every day but still a lot coming. When they attacking I closed all the doors, windows and turn off all the light inside the house, they are attracted with light and we don't want unwanted visitors inside our house. The lizards are so happy feeding with this insect and me and hubby are unhappy when there are few escaping and flying inside the house.

My Idol Then and Now

Do you still remember her? I can't forget this beautiful lady, I recall the old days, I was so young about 5 years old or so and my mom and dad are so fun of "wonder woman", our TV that time is black and white with wooden frame hahaha.
She's my idol too and when they re-run wonder woman on our local TV station in the Philippines I really watch every re-run episodes and recall my childhood days. I love her blue eyes, her perfect face and figure, her costume, she’s so beautiful and I have searched her recent photo and she’s still pretty.

Expensive Vegetables

Did you know that 90 percent of our produced, can goods, meats and other things came from the mainland and shipped here, that’s why we have very expensive food and produced here? According to the local farmers it’s also expensive to grow vegetables here because the land is so expensive the solution is grow your own vegetable in your backyard if you have a little space.
In my case, I do love gardening a lot flowers or vegetables and herbs. At first the husband doesn’t want me to plant anything, but I'm hard headed and I bought pot, soil and seeds. I asked my mom-in-law for malunggay seeds (horseradish tree), lemon grass and alugbati (malabar night shade). I have different kinds of chilis like Thai chili, jalapeƱo, peppers, Asian chili. I planted herbs that I mostly use like sage, rosemary, thyme, green onions, chives, basil, parsley, oregano. I have my celery, ti leaf, carrots, beans, okra, and bitter gourd. Maybe if only I have a good size land I will be a farmer hahahaha.
I love eating the vegetables I've planted and it’s organic too.


My 200th Post!

Yippy I have reach my 200th POST on this blog, actually this was my first blog or mother blog, born on January 16th, 2008. Jana is the mother of this blog, taking care of it and nurturing it with good useful stuff and sometimes with junk nonsense post; sometimes I get so lazy updating my blogs and only want to stare on it all day long.
When I woke up each morning my routine is go directly on my PC and see who leaves me comments or who have visited my blogs, then if there's no task I do my random visit right away. BUT My blogs depend on my mood, If I'm in good mood I keep posting anything that are popping on my mind and I randomly visit as much blog as I can, when I'm not in the mood or I feel lazy, I still open my PC first thing in the morning but just look who came to visit then put it to sleep and watch TV or do the household thing lol lol.
Now you know when you don't see me on your respective blog especially weekdays that means the GIRL is attacked by LAZINESS! hahahaha

Indulge

Indulge in this chocolate, yah we love indulging in this chocolate covered macadamia nuts. This was a gift from the kids basketball team, hubby is one of the assistant coach, and every potluck they give their coaches goodies as thank you. The kids are great they really are good player, and I am proud to say that they are unbeaten team last spring season, they won all the games. Hope that on the next season they will do the same but some of the kids on their team will move up to next age level.

Eating TIPS

During meal try to eat your vegetables on your plate first. Then when you get full before finishing you already have consumed a larger percentage of low-calorie, nutrient dense food. Make it a habit to eat your fruits and vegetables before diving in on your main course. This is a healthy way to get the right and balance amount of your meal.

ouch! burn again!

Yah I get burn from our oven two days in a row!, yesterday I was baking the cookies and when I have tried to full out the cookie sheet to place the the marshmallow and I accidentally touch the oven rack.
Today my husband called that hes coming home for breakfast with his two buddies, the materials for the job was not ready yet, that's why they'll come home for breakfast at 9:30am, I was scrambling to cook the breakfast, scrambled eggs with onions, fried Portuguese sausage, dried fish and baked bacon. Ouch! the bake bacon, when I took the baking sheet from the oven to drain off the oils I accidentally hit my hands on the racks again, now I have burn on my two hands. That's how CLUMSY I am!. I''' make sure next time I have my mittens on.

The Tiger Reigns


I don't play golf and don't understand fully how is golf scored and played. I am fan of Tiger Woods though, and my hubby made me watch him play on TV and make me understand how the golf game goes. Since Saturday we are watching him play the 108 US open, yesterday when we are at the beach he let me check on my cell phone hows the Golf score and we are surprise to know that Tiger and Rocco are tie, that means they are both playing the playoff, I never know there's a golf playoff I thought its only on basketball. This morning we have watch the playoff and tiger was controlling the game by 3 points but it suddenly evaporates, since then they are exchanging the control on the game and I was so nervous when Rocco leads 1 points on the 18th hole, whew good thing Tiger made it to tie again and they will play for a 'sudden death'. This sudden sudden death play made me glued on TV that I don't even want to blink. They start at the 7th hole, Tiger started it well and all the ball was on green, meanwhile Rocco made his first shot land on banker and the next shot land on the grass again that means Tiger have a good chance here, and he did made it.
Congratulations TIGER, The USGA 108 US open 3rd time champion!.

A couple of New Jersey hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing, and his eyes are rolled back in his head.
The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: “My friend is dead! What can I do?”
The operator, in a calm, soothing voice, says: “Just take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.”
There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy’s voice comes back on the line. He says: “Okay, now what?”

MOVIES NIGHT

IRON MAN

Last night we have watch IRON MAN at the theater. The first couple minutes I didn't appreciate the movie because its about weapons and I am pacifist lol. The story is about Tony Stark ( Robert Downey) who is the master engineer and co owner of Stark Industry who are manufacturing weapons. He was at Afghanistan to demonstrate the 'jericho' cluster missile. He was ambushed and one of his own company's bombs lands near him and explodes.
Stark has been captured by the terrorist group Ten Rings, who order him to build a Jericho missile for them. Instead, he and fellow captiveDr. Yinsen secretly build a crude but strong power armor fueled by a miniature "arc reactor", a smaller version of a power source previously invented by Stark. The arc reactor supplies energy to an electromagnet which prevents embedded shrapnel from reaching Stark's heart, which would kill him.
Anyway I recommend this movie, rate 1-10, and 10 is the highest, I'll rate this movie 9. It was a funny, trilling, and very good movie rated PG13, we are waiting for the DVD release because we want to watch it again.
