Photostory: 5 Simple Rules to Happiness

Good morning everyone!

We only have 2 days and we will say goodbye to June already. We will be entering the second half of the year and time flies so fast, Christmas is just around the corner, hehe.

But I'll look forward to July first because this is our anniversary month. Come July 27, we will be celebrating our 5th year wedding anniversary but it is actually our 9th year of being in love. I have learned a lot from my husband and one important thing I learn is to accept things at it is and learn when to give up. I am always a fighter and I don't easily give up. Even I am quiet most of the time, I am thinking of ways how to make things and succeed. However, when I don't get what I want it leads to disappointments making be vulnerable to negative feelings and stress.

I always told my husband "kung gusto may paraan at kung ayaw maraming dahilan" (if there's a will, there's a way). Though it is true, I discovered that we have our own limitations and that if it's not meant to be, it will never happen. After years of living together under one roof, I finally learned to accept things as it is. I don't push myself too much, nor I push him too much because I trust God and we let Him lead our way.

Maybe you are thinking we have a smooth sailing relationship because of the almost 20 years of friendship. Well, different storms had passed by our home, I almost give up one day but I realize giving up will never be a solution. So I choose to fight for him and our love, but I cannot succeed without him working too. I am glad he never give up too. God is really good and He gave us the biggest blessing of our life unexpectedly but just in time.

After two years of being parents to a cute little boy, we learn more and we become selfless. I learn to appreciate little things, I learn to love time and I learn to be happy even with my failure.

Let me share with you this 5 simple rules to be happy...

photo source
I always believe that happiness is a choice, that's what I believe. You can make your own happiness. First, don't carry grudges in your heart because it is like holding a flaming charcoal in your hands, the longer you hold it, the more you get hurt. And what about the people you hate or angry at? They don't know and care about that. They don't feel your pain so why hurt yourself. Free yourself from hatred.

I honestly admit that I am a worrier. Yes I am and I worry about so many things that have yet to happen. But I trust God, so I learn to not worry much. I know God has always a purpose for all the things that happen in our lives and that he doesn't give us a burden we cannot carry. Also, worries doesn't help us in any way and it will just make us a paranoid. Free your mind from worries.

I am a dreamer and there's nothing wrong with that. I used to dream about a rich life when I can sleep all day long without worrying about my future. I am also hoping to win a jackpot from Lotto, though I don't really play it, haha. But then I realize if ever I win a mega million jackpot, that's millions of pesos. Where the hell can I safely store those??? Lol. Just thinking about having millions of pesos, I fear that my life will be complicated so I am just contented with my life now. I love my life, I have a wonderful husband, a cute son, a supportive family, a good work, a nice blog (please agree with me, haha), and an emerging business. What can I ask for? Well, I want a baby girl in the future in God's time. Live simply.

I am the eldest in the family and naturally, I am the one who always give especially when I always have something to share. I always believe that it is better to give than to receive. Okay sometimes, I love receiving too, who doesn't anyway? Lol. Give more.

When I give, I learn to not expect in return. Always give from your heart and don't expect that you will receive something in return. In this way, you don't get depressed right? Too much expectations often lead to disappointments. Just what I have said, learn when you will give up and what is your limitations. Remember that life is an echo, whatever you give, life will give it back to you. Let life do it for you. Expect less.

So that's the 5 simple rules to happiness, I hope somehow it touches your life...

Happy Thursday!

BC Bloggers Meme: 5 Things I Want to Do Before I Get Old

Wow, this is very hard because I am thinking of so much things to do now and before I get old.

I will give it a try if I can limit it to just 5, lets start...

1. I want to be an established mompreneur. I know you already know that I have just opened my online shop. So far, it is doing well. I am selling baby stuffs like cloth diaper, which my son is also using, and diaper bags. But I want something more still, I want to create my own product that Momaye's Shoppe will be known of. I know it is not an overnight success and because I am just starting, it is like the door just open and I am taking my step inside the battle ground. Thank God, I have a very supportive husband who drives for me to Divisoria and to the courier :) 

Please visit my site HERE
2. I want to learn crocheting. Since I will grow old, I better learn to crochet before I loss my memory and control of my hands because of rheumatism. Lol. Honestly, it is more than that. As I already said above, I want to make a product that Momaye's Shoppe will be known of. That is why I am learning different handcrafts, and crocheting is one of them. I actually have an idea of what product to do and one of these days I will disclose that with you.
photo source
3. I want to travel with my family.  I want to go to Disneyland with Matthew and Daddy soon. I am sure Matt will love to see the real Mickey Mouse. I want to  see the real Chocolate Hills. I want to go to different places here and abroad, unfortunately I can't do it now. But I promise myself, I will do it soon.

photo source
4.  I want to have grandchildren. Seriously yes, I want to have grandchildren before I grow old. I want to take care of them and play with them. I want to know if it is true that you will love your grandchildren more than your own children. That I want to know before I grow old and I can never run after my grandchildren anymore.
photo source
5. I want to own a farm house. We already have our own house now, but Daddy Allan and I wanted to have a farm where we can raise chickens, goats, cows and plant trees, vegetables and different flowering plants. I know Daddy Allan loves planting so even if we don't have a garden at home he still plants in a pot  or empty milk cans. Since he could not make it grow like a trees, he make them into bonsai instead.

That sums up the 5 things I want to do before I grow old for our BC Blogger Meme this week. If you want to be part of our blog CommEx and Meme, join us HERE.

CrazyDogTshirt GiftCard Giveaway

Guys, let me share this great giveaway!

CrazyDogT-Shirt Review & Giveaway
brought to you by 
teamed up with 13 other Awesome Bloggers to bring you this giveaway!

I was given the opportunity to review 2 T-Shirts from &
I was originally drawn to these two websites because of the unique saying/image of each shirt.  

Who don't love a funny t-shirt?
My first choice was  the "I Illegally Downloaded This T-Shirt" shirt, which you can find in the Funny T-Shirt section of CrazyDogTshirts.comEveryone loves the Internet!  Show your love for computers and that you're a risk taker when you need to be, when you rock this funny tee.   This funny shirt is perfect for the computer lover in your life.  The t-shirt brings out your personality without saying a word.  I spend a lot of time on the computer, I do download music, movies, games and more!
Crazy Dog Tshirts are super soft, stretchy and super comfy. I dislike tight fighting shirts where you feel like you can't move around.  It don't matter what design you choose they are perfect for everyday use, a night out with your friends, or even lounging around the house. (note my second shirt choice)

I am a T-Shirt and Jeans type of gal, so I requested size XL -Mens.  
According to the sizing chart on measurements for the XL -Mens is:
*Chest "48"
*Body Length "31"
*Sleeve Length "9"
With Super Easy Washing Instructions:
Machine Wash Cold, Tumble Dry, Do Not Bleach! -I can handle that!
I found the sizing chart and t-shirt care instructions to be true.

Women's Sizing Chart Measurement Notes:
Chest is measured 1" below armhole.  Body length in the front from highest point of the shoulder, Sleeve length from shoulder edge.
With Super Easy Washing Instructions:
Machine wash cold, Do not bleach, and Tumble dry low.

My 2nd t-shirt choice was the "Snuggie T-Shirt" which you can find in the "Best Seller's" section of !

I am a stay at home mommy to 3 wonderful children, a wife of 10 years to a great husband, and spend much of my time in my pajama's. If I leave the house I will get dressed, but as soon as Im back at home I put my jammies back on. So when I seen this shirt I knew it was for me!  With this  "Snuggie T-Shirt" , its like wearing jammies outside of the house, and everyone who knows me know's it fits me perfect! -they all got a giggle outta it. **Goal Accomplished** Again super soft, streachy, comfortable, a perfect fit.

Snuggie t shirt is here! No it's not a blanket! You can use it in your home, on the road, in a dorm, at the big game and in the bathroom. The blanket/reverse robe that is sweeping the nation with the shamwow. How can you live without one and without this funny snuggie shirt.

They have a variety of Hilarious T-Shirts for everyone!  Also check out their selection of  "$9.00 SALE T-Shirts"!


What is the Prize: is kind enough to offer a $15 Gift Card to use on their website.
(valid on only, Winner is limited to those who do not own giveaway/review blog of their own or people who have gotten any promotional items from CrazyDogTShirts within 90 days.)

How to Join:

Photostory: Matt at Work

Look who is our little visitor...

Last Saturday was Matt's vaccine day. He had his Pneumococcal vaccine that day. We had to go to office still because Daddy had a meeting pa. Since it was a Saturday, I told Daddy why not bring Matt along with us instead of driving back home again.

So we did and at first behave sya. We brought his Mini Tuktuk so he can play and roam around. He did walk around but he had his head hit two times to the corners of the tables. So I just let him sit beside me but he kept on opening the drawer of my table or tapping my PC's keyboard or clicking the mouse. Hehe...Anyway, I was happy because he charmed my colleagues by singing his favorite Syempre and nursery rhymes. His laughter is contagious that everyone is laughing and smiling.

Have you tried bringing your child along with you at the office? I love to hear your story :)

P.S.: Please help Daddy Allan and Matthew win MomCenter Phil.'s Daddy and Me photo contest. Click HERE to like. Thanks a lot!

Photostory: How to Really Love Motherhood

When I became a mother, I suddenly transformed to a Super Woman. I wish I really am so I won't get sick. I can't afford to be sick right now or ever. But Mommy Maye finally give in, and cold virus already entered my system. I do my best to stop them but I think the weather plus the stress I went through last week for Matt's birthday makes my immune system a little weak.

I will definitely miss cuddling with my son for I am off limit to him right now. I hate this feeling! I hate limiting myself and no, not with my son's hugs and kisses.

So, I am praying and trying to rest. Hopefully colds will just stay colds and not go to flu. This time I really need a rest or I'll end up totally bed ridden for the coming days.

By the way, I want to share this: How to Really Love Motherhood. 
photo source

I love being a mother and as I always say, it's a job I don't dream of but now that I tasted the happiness it brings, I never want to keep. Toinks! Now I understand why there are mothers who cling to her children even when they are all grown ups and have their own families.

For now, we should not stress our self too much. We are mothers and we are suppose to enjoy and love motherhood. 

Happy Sunday! I hope I get better soon, I miss my son so so much.

Sorry, I almost forgot these to post.

Here are the photos of the two handsome guys of my life last Father's Day.

 The two guys riding the carousel. Looks like Daddy Allan enjoyed the ride too.

The two guys eating ice cream. Oh no, Matt won't share the ice cream with Daddy.

Happy Saturday! Enjoy the weekend. It's Matthew's vaccine day.

Photostory: Clean As You Go

We are implementing the 5S Program in our Feedmill come July. We are actually doing it in our laboratory and we are following the "Clean As You Go" or CAYGO policy. We come also to a point when we implement fines of 5 pesos on each thing and trash you leave in the working area that supposedly should not be there. We are trained to put back all the things to its right place and throw all the trashes after work.  I  was actually caught two times only, haha.

At home, we also training Matt to do this. We let him put back his toys after playing, same with his shoes and slippers and milk bottle too. I find it really cute when he try to organize his toys and things.

Did you also do the CAYGO at work or your own home?
