hair waves

your crowning glory -  the secret of a head turner doesn't depend on " magic hands" not even on hair dressers. so here are  some dos and don'ts  that can promise surefire hit to your hair, any type, any day.

do - take a once every so often break from daily shampooing to give scalp's natural oil a chance to moisturize hair shafts.

do - gurad your hair against color changes due to salt, chlorine and copper found in swimming pools

do - remember to give your hair extra holding once in a while. gel, mousse and the like can do you good as long as you know when to put it.

don't - ever brush your hair when wet. your hair will tend to break and it can cause unwanted splitends

don't - always drt your hair with a blow dryer. if you can fan it dry, do it. blow drying is not advisable as it dries up your hair and it steals moisture and natural oils.

check if you have been committning these crimes to your crowning glory and correct yourself. these guidelines will help your hair become eye-stopping and head-turning. who doesn;t want that?

Passion sells, and enthusiasm is contagious. It is the energy you put into the sale, and it comes from your heart, not just your head. Many salespeople can read from a line card or recite accurately their value-added services. Great salespeople put passion into this exercise. Customers buy their products and services because everyone wants to feel good about how they spend their money. Enthusiasm makes the buyer feel better about the purchase. The buyer may know intellectually that the product makes sense, but passion moves the buyer.

say it with LOVE

say it with flowers - that's what some flower shop commercials often suggest when you want to express something to somebody. but did you know that there is a better way to say things you want to say? i suggest....

for co-worker   - take time to listen to their woes, became a source of hope and inspiration
for a boss         - you can relate to your workers with phases like " hey, good work, keep it up"
as an employee - offer help to co-workers with overload works and tasks

sincerely, friendly words of love will surely turn a tedious day into a cheerful one, help dispel feelings of gloom and with constant use, establish camaraderie at the workplace

a love letter from A

our A with his fave anime, naruto

we got this love letter from A after his recollection....awww..this was so sweet of him

More than 20 kids from La Purisima Concepcion Academy  (Grade V) experienced  a recollection for the first time in their lives. They just received their first Holy Communion  two years ago, and their enthusiasm during the spiritual exercises is very heart warming. Sometimes, by God's grace they inspire people  at LCPA. This time, we were the ones who were inspired by the simplicity, kindness and sweetness of these children "of God."

a tribute to ninoy

The nation observes the 27th death anniversary former Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. on Saturday, August 21. He was one of the strongest influences in the opposition party against the Marcos Administration.
His death sparked a series of revolutions against the administration leading to the EDSA Revolution of 1986.

Blessed are you when wicked men abuse you and perecute you and speak all kinds of calumny against you all because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven. This is how they persecuted the prophets before you.

Excerpt from a gospel reading
Funeral mass for Evelio Javier, Ateneo de Manila University


We live in a three-dimensional world. Every object you can see or touch has three dimensions that can be measured: length, width and height.
My lil' Alec had a good time posing in these 3D work. We're so amazed at his facial expresions emoting
a terrified kid falling from a building. So expressive isn't it? =)

child-proof your home

alec at 6months  -  2005

we're always busy,from the timew we get up in the morning until we lay down at night. we barely have time to relax. sometimes in the middle of a busy day we suddenly begin to worry about our little ones we left at home. kids, they are the main reasons why we should keep our homes accident free. here are some suggestions on how to maintain it safely and worry-free:

  • store all breakables ( glass , ceramics) out of children's reach
  • do not put jars or bowls of cookies, candies and other muchies where small children can get them easily. they may choke on them or insert it to their nose or ears
  • plug -up unused outlets , there are fancy-cover available in hardware stores
  • store toxic substances like medicines and cleaning supplies out of their sight
  • put matches, lighters, candles in their proper places immediately after use
  • put away toys that requires instruction in safe handling
  • do not leave sharp materials on top of the tables where kids can easily grab them
  • keep stairways and corridors well-lighted and clotter free
  • cover electric wire and cords for a safer and organize rooms
