A New Discovery


Each Christmas vacation, my brothers-in-law come to visit. Last year, we went to the beach. Last May, we went to Alaminos. This time around, instead of the promised return to Manila Hotel, (my kids just like the bathtub), we were planning to go to Zoobic. Hubby had his field trip there a few months back so we thought it was time to bring the kids to the zoo.
The original plan was to go visit Zoobic Safari and Subic Ocean Adventure. While doing research, I changed my mind about it. I thought that Subic would tire the kids out even before they arrive even if we pass through SCTEX. Plus during my research of Zoobic, I found out about a different zoo which is nearer and perhaps more kid-friendly. I discovered Zoocobia and Paradise Ranch!
Paradise Ranch and Zoocobia became my first choice of alternative as places to visit. Included in the plan was a visit to Nayong Pilipino and El Kabayo but our real purpose was Zoocobia and if we could visit the other places that would be great too.
Zoocobia as my kids termed it, is a petting zoo. They got opportunities of close encounters with goats, birds,  a bearcat and other animals. They got to feed the goats with milk in baby bottles. They tried to feed lovebirds with birdseed but got scared and a little hurt by the claws of the birds that they ran screaming out of the bird cage. 
We got to Zoocobia first. The first thing we did was had lunch. We reached the place at 11 am. We left our house around 7:30. We had lunch at the restaurant in Zoocobia, and the food was great! Even my kids love the Breaded Chicken Fillet! They love breading, so that was my choice. For the guys in the photo, I chose the grilled pork chop. For my mom and I, we had breaded fish fillet which was served with a garden salad dressed with mustard and yummy potato fries. We ordered extra rice since it wasn't provided with the meal. The lunch was cheap, filling, and tasted great. My kids want to eat there everyday, so they tell me.
After lunch, we started the tour. A tour guide named Resty was our guide for our stay. We were told that we could watch a live animal show when we finished our tour. We got to see ostriches, an alpaca, Wagyu cow, greyhound dogs, love birds, owls, snakes, my kids enjoyed seeing a miniature horse and a Shetland horse.


1st photo at Zoocobia! We ate first before touring the place.

My Performing Kids with the Amazing Disney and the dog trainer.


Best of all , my kids loved being part of the show when they volunteered to help the dog do his tricks. In the photo above, my kids held the hoops as the dog jumped through each hoop. Then they held the hoop closer together so the dog could jump 2 hoops in a single jump.

I highly recommend that you visit Zoocobia if you want your kids to appreciate the animals.  Watch out for my next post where I talk about Paradise Ranch.

As for their rates, we got the P375, Paradise Ranch and Zoocobia tour.

The Year That Was

This is the year when:


  • Both of my kids started attending big school, my former alma mater. Amazingly tiring yet amazingly rewarding since both of them seemed to enjoy it. It was a big trial for all of us, but the kids managed beautifully after a rocky month.
  • We were able to go to a trip outside our city with the whole family. The fabulous thing about is that we got to attend a beautiful wedding and stayed at no less than Manila Hotel.
  • I got to go out and have a little social life.
  • I was going to start a business but was not able to push through.
  • God blessed me by making me pregnant with my 3rd child.
  • I won some contests on the web and also went on hiatus in the blogging world.
  • I discovered DAs and found opportunities to earn money online
  • I got scammed via paypal to gcash exchange
  • I decided that when I have enough money I will do paypal to gcash exchange as a legitimate seller.
  • I took advantage of the free shipping courtesy of multiply!

LTINS: Dear Santa edition

Letters That I'll Never Send

Dear Santa,

         I've been good this year, yet someone scammed me from my future Christmas gift to hubby. Can i get a job? Anything online? Well, somehow it doesn't really matter what you give me this year. I just hope my kids are gonna be happy. As people say, Christmas is for the kids, and kids at heart. I belong to the latter. So does my hubby. I still haven't found anything nice for my mom and she deserves to have something nice. I only have a couple of nieces and nephews that are on my list but if I can't provide, would you provide them with gifts?

         I hope that next year will be better and that I'll be more prepared. Christmas should come everyday but then you'd be so tired. So never mind. We have no chimney so try the windows instead. I am not sure if my kids will be leaving milk and cookies for you, we only have man made milk. My kids are allergic to cow's milk. Take care Santa. Hope to find lots of stuff under the tree this year for the kids.

When in London...

I am a Harry Potter fan. I signed up for Pottermore. I would love to visit London someday. I have relatives and a classmate there. It must be very interesting. It would be a dream come true to tour the castles, Westminster Abbey where Prince William married Kate Middleton. That would be very amazing!


I wonder how it would be to live in Top London loft conversions. I think lofts are great living spaces. New York residences are also defined as lofts. I think my cousins live in lofts. I wonder whether they belong to  Middlesex loft-conversion group .


There's a lot of history in London. I just think about Philippa Gregor's novels and instantly I am curious as to how the places described and how does the lineage of the Tudors live on.


I would like to see Big Ben. I also wouldn't want to miss visiting Oxford as it is  the most mentioned school in movies. I'm also curious about flea markets. What great finds would I uncover there? There are a lot of places that are certainly worth a first and second look. I wonder if it would be difficult to go there. 


London is also the setting in my head for Arthurian Legends. King Arthur, Merlin, Knights of the Round Table. These are just a few of the things that fill my head when I think of London. What about you?

I miss small giveaways

I miss winning. Discovering small, obscure and little known giveaways make for a bigger chance in winning. So I miss them. I'm in panic mode as Monday approaches, it is my son's 4th birthday. My kids aren't lucky on their birthdays. I usually have less and less budget for their parties at school. I'm just glad that I was able to buy some gifts for them which is reserved for Christmas.

I found some at Multiply and Multiply is currently having a promo of free shipping for items bought that are worth 400 Ph. Pesos and up! I think that's a great deal! I got them some fun toys. I just wish I had earned a lot more from blogging to be able to buy them better gifts. Perhaps, next year will be better.

I hated the fact that I got scammed. My mistake. Big mistake. I am never going to do paypal to gcash exchange ever. Maybe when I'm rich I'll do that business. I want to do a legitimate online business. Maybe I'll enter the world of money conversion, since I needed to do it, maybe others need to do it too. Lesson learned the hard way. It was money for my son's birthday gift. But Karma is a B****. Good things will come my way. I hope.

Places to Eat while Here in our City


I've always complained about our city not being a real city. We have the population and the earnings perhaps, but it's slowly getting there. The photo above is the name of a restaurant which makes our city, a city. I think it makes our city, a worthwhile visit. It is a restaurant where you can bring friends, relatives and visitors without feeling ashamed. There are only a few restaurants in our city that is worth the mention and the time.Their menu is impressive and the restaurant caters to both kids and executives.

Casa Bella has an impressive ambiance. They have live music. The food tastes great. What my Mom, hubby, the kids and I enjoyed the most was their all you can eat buffet during Wednesday nights. They offer a wide variety of viands that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults. My kids love the baby back ribs and the carbonara. I personally love the carbonara too. Since I've been a lazy carbonara cook, theirs is the only one I want to eat. My daughter loves the garlic bread that goes with it too! Yummy!

My mom raves about their Kapampangang Dinuguan. She could go and eat a whole lot of servings. Besides that they also offer pizzas and large orders of Pasta, Pansit and Carbonara!

So if you ever come and visit, I have a pretty good idea where to take you. 

Casa Bella is located at Brgy. Manzon, San Carlos City, Pangasinan 2420

11.11.11

Today is November 11, 2011. You guys know that. Well, make this day memorable because today, my blog is officially PR2. That's what I get for over indulging in links. This blog got so much better page rank when I don't blog.

It's downright funny. I guess, I deserve it though. It's ok because I got a new spanking blog designed by no other than Miss Kaye herself. I think that's a notch on my belt. Being able to afford a customized blog design. I don't mind the PR change that much.

Still torn up to what this blog should be. I am now drowning my sorrows in playing Royal Envoy 2. It's a must try for casual gamers who want to think strategy. Hubby and I are challenging each other to get 3 stars on all levels. Except there's a bug at Level 25 on the bonus challenges.

Liking a facebook game right now. It's Coco Life. Fashion and being fashionista at its finest. A dress up game for everyone. That's all for now.

By the way, come visit my new blog. It's Sit by My Couch.

State of the Blog Again

It's easy to just slip away and disappear. Seriously, I am again reconsidering where I want this blog to go. I enjoyed the traffic of joining a blog caravan or a giveaway caravan but then of course, I have to be on the earning side to continue that.

With no blog entries, there's no work. No work, no moolah. Plus, I am rethinking about my blog topics. I could completely stop. Wait for my contracts to advertisers to end and start anew. Will starting anew be too much of a hassle? I wonder, out loud.

I could write about the little city where I am, which doesn't look like a city at all. But there's not much to talk about and being a stay at home mom, my world is only broadened by what I am able to read on the internet and the few places I get to go to.

My life is not interesting, or as interesting as others. I can't pretend it to be otherwise. My interests are wide and scattered. Nothing really defined. Just look at the mess of this blog post. Plus, I feel more and more like napping. Blame it on the first trimester.

To blog and what to blog about...that is the question.

Did you miss me?

I missed writing. So what happened to make me disappear for a long while?

Nothing much, the storm. Took out power and internet. If I had slow internet before, I got slower or non-existing internet for weeks.

For the past 2 months, I've been sleepy. Very sleepy. I could take solid 4 hour naps.

From being a SAHM to 2 kids... I am proud to announce that baby number 3 is on the way.

Now, I'm a Mommy gonna be - again!

That's all for now... I'm gonna nap again.

Letters That I'll Never Send

Letters That I'll Never Send

Dear Pedring (also known as the Storm that flooded the place),

     First and foremost, I dislike your name. It sounds like something I'd call my husband when I'm old. Folks are still reeling and remembering Ondoy and here you are now. It's a sad time and you've made it worse. I just heard that now the dam near our place is releasing water and a lot of the places here is already flooded. Nueva Ecija, Bicol Regions, Manila, Pangasinan certainly Calasiao and Dagupan are experiencing flooding in all areas. Do you know what's worse? There's another storm coming. It's so depressing. A lot of our countrymen are experiencing hardships because of storms. A lot has lost their homes, property, and even loved ones. They may do a lot of forecasts, predict a lot of things but truly no one is ever really truly prepared when a storm comes. I hope that you don't cause hardships to more places. Goodbye!

Join our Giveaway!

Check the post below, join our giveaway. I know you want to. I wish I can avail of printing services and create more banners and other advertising materials. I know that is a great way to advertise and publicize what our contest is if I find one that offered those services.

For a business, a blog giveaway, a contest, a blog to succeed, I think it's very important to have the right tools for the job. The key to this is advertising.Everyone needs publicity most specially a business or a blog. A business will have no customers if no one knows anything about it. A blog will have no readers if no one knows it exists.If no one knows it exists, then the blog will not likely earn or generate traffic.

Did you know that a blog or a business should also keep in mind its design? Both in blogs and in business, first impressions last. A blog that looks the same as everyone else is often forgotten. A blog and a business should practice brand identity. With brand identity, all their advertising needs should be addressed like facebook landing pages, print advertisements, business cards and even newsletters.  To be successful, create a brand that will be branded on their minds.

You need to find that company that offers printing services which can do a large number of copies of the highest quality. Remember, quality is better than quantity, so your blog or business will be remembered. This reminds me that I have to start earning money and have Miss Kaye design me a new blog.

Nice To Know You Wednesday Meme


Questions of the Week:


  1. What are your top 5 pet peeves?
  2. What is your zodiac sign + does it fit you personality?
  3. What is your all-time favorite TV show?
  4. What is your goal for the next 30 days?
  5. What is your favorite movie + what is it about?

My top 5 Pet Peeves

  • the complainer 
  • jejemon/bekimon
  • smokers specially those who are in the health industry. it's ironic that they smoke because they are under a lot of stress but they are the ones who know and have seen its effects.
  • the one who jumps the long queue. 
  • the flaw finder but doesn't see one's own flaws


My Zodiac Sign is the Taurus..and yes, I am as stubborn as a bull. But that's about it. I am the opposite spectrum if I base being a Taurean to my mom. My mom is of the A personality and I am the quiet, enduring type until I become full.

My all-time Favorite Tv Show --- The X-Files...The Truth is Out There. It makes me imagine that there is more to life than the walls of our house. That the universe is a big place and anything and everything is possible.

For the next 30 days, my goal is mainly to survive in this ruthless world. Wait, that's my melodramatic part talking. My goal is to write enough posts so that  I could get at least 1 of the blogs I placed at WP become a part of Sheriff's network.

My favorite movie is What Dreams May Come. It is a movie of Robin Williams. A story of how much a man loves his wife that he went to hell just to get her back. Now, that's what I call Love. He would even choose to stay in hell just to be with her.

My Kids will be joining the Military

Hubby grew up in a military family. His father held the position of Chief of Police in the neighboring town to their home. My husband's sister is a police officer a graduate of PNPA (Philippine National Police Academy) and another one of hubby's sister is a graduate of PMA.(Philippine Military Academy). His other sister works at NAPOLCOM (National Police Commission) as one of their writers perhaps of a newsletter that may be called Military Times.

My father-in-law and mother-in-law are raising 11 kids. The eldest would be my husband. My husband would tell me stories of how education was and still is the most important thing in their lives that their father would apply at a MilitaryVALoan.com or something equivalent to it here in the Philippines just to make sure that his kids could attend school.

With all of them becoming immersed in the military life, there is a running joke that since I only have 2 kids, one would become a PNPA cadet, the other a PMA cadet. But College is not for quite some time yet. What I am certain of however, is that whatever they decide upon. They should be happy.

Blog Hop! Hopping Along

Blog Hops Everyday Friday Blog Hop

I'm new to this. I'm not sure if it's like a meme. But I do get the fact, that you have to visit the blog, become a follower and leave a comment. Well, I hope I get more followers through this! It's exciting to be discovering and rediscovering a lot of things again. I feel as if I've forgotten the old ways of blogging.

Come join and hop along!
