Boats in harbors, estuaries or shallow coastal water should return to shore. Secure your boat and move away from the waterfront. Boats already at sea during this period should stay offshore in deep waters until further advised.

Hawaii warns of possible tsunami

After the 8.8 magnitude earthquake in Chile, every nation in the Pacific Rim is now on a threatened alert of a possible deadly tsunami. Hawaii now alerts everyone in it's country to be prepared. They now have the highest alert level, people living near the coastal area were being evacuated. Hilo International Airport which is located along the coast was also closed. Same warning goes with Countries like Guam and Samoa. In our country, the Philvolcs issued a low-level alert ordering people to wait further notice of a possible tsunami.
A tsunami during the 1960's happened after a quake with a magnitude of 9.5 also struck Chile, affected Japan, Hawaii and The Philippines.

A moment of silence for CHILE

Today, Feb. 28, 2010, Talca, Chile experienced a very devastating earthquake. A magnitude of 8.8 quake struck the country early Saturday which resulted to toppling homes, collapsed buildings and bridges and also threatened a tsunami to every nation around the Pacific Ocean, which includes our country aswell.

It was said that this earthquake in Chile is 10x more powerful than what Haiti have just experienced.

Let us all pray for the people in Chile. Let us all pray that tsunami will not struck any nation. Let us pray for everyone's safety.

God bless us all.

Hubby's Team Bldg :)

My husband works in a call center and from time to time they do have this thing called "team bldg" which many of us will think that this has something to do with getting to know your officemates, having an organized group process and games that will require group effort. But believe it or not, that thought of team bldg. isn't really what it truly means. Team Building is simply "having fun"! And yes, these people working in the call center industry always do have fun, and more often than not, they do it by just hanging out somewhere and having an ice cold beer. ;) Well needless to say, My husband tag us along to join their activity and be able to have fun with his office friends. We went to a private resort somewhere in Rosario, Cavite. It was a 30 min. drive coming from SM Bacoor. The resort's name is JK Mata, named after the street where it hails.

So there, we were amazed by the beauty of the mini resort :) it was very clean and quite big enough for the amount that they paid for. Good catch eh? :)

There's a 10 ft. deep pool, a cabana with 4 rooms, living area and a big and clean restroom. There's also a gazebo, a separate kitchen area, a separate dining area and 2 more restrooms at the back of the kitchen. The place is just cozy and lovely at night. and all of that for the amount of just Php 4,500!!! Nice right? ;0

Bridson's first try @ Tony Roma's - ATC



Spending Sundays at the Alabang Town Center has been our family's weekend bonding. We usually hang out there after lunch until past 8p.m.
A few weeks ago, Bridson has been eyeing one particular restaurant. He keeps on asking if I was able to try their food before and if it's good... I told him to better check it out for himself. ;) and voila! dinner is set at Tony Roma's!!! We got in there around 6:45 p.m., quite early dinner for us. My son bongbong was feeling at home inside the resto, he keeps on walking around and having fun with the restaurant attendants. hehe =)) One of the female attendant gave him a twisted balloon shaped into a snail, she also gave him crayons and paper while we were waiting for our food to be served. My husband ordered Cheese Burger - monterey jack cheese, medium rare, while I ordered Grilled Pork Chops with corn and rice. One person approached us while we were munchin on the free hot bread, he told us that unfortunately there's not much french fries-side dish left to serve, however they will still serve it together with a free baked potato. Then our food came, we were shocked by the amount of servings that they offer. Twas like an overload of fries plus a baked potato and coleslaw. And that's only for Bridson. My food was also terrific! I love the grilled pork chops plus the apple side dish. Everything was awesome. There's no room left for dessert. haha!

Before we finished our food, a lady attendant came to our table and offered me a discount card called "Friends of Tony Roma's" she said I can use it already after signing up. So there, I got a 10% disc. on top of our total bill. ;) Tony Roma's ATC is a superb resto!

Hats off to White Hat ;)

I've heard too much about fro-yo craze that I gave in to having a try on it. At first, I thought to myself that those frozen yogurt are just goody good food that are way much expensive for just a size of a cup... but after trying it for myself I must say that IT's JUST SOOOO GOOD!


Upon entering the White Hat's branch in ATC, I already felt a different sensation, I knew that I am going to enjoy my order! I chose to make my own froyo and I also asked hubby to make his own, when we told the attendant in the store what we wanted to have we were amazed that we both wanted to have the same 3 toppings! haha well, ofcourse I decided that he stay with his combo, while I make another for myself. ;) I don't want us to have the same froyo to share, I want different toppings to enjoy :)

It was heaven after the first taste, my husband and kid love their froyo so much. Thanks White Hat for this one. It is really a guilt free food!
