We felt sad and grieved the first time we heard but we are assured that she is now in heaven with the Lord. I had sleepless nights thinking of the happenings. Life is like a vapor, it will just pass away, we didn't know our future but we know who holds the future...
We need to go back to the Phil and be with our family during this time. Because of this happening, we were reminded to be on guard and take time to do His will and follow His commands. That life is nothing without the Lord.

Since I started making designs I had my own favorites. I mean, there were designs that I like most. It's quite easy and cheaper than swarovski crystals. These are rice pearls. I have friends who were working abroad and they bought some of my designs to sell for their friends and others who wanted to buy. At least it's cheaper and attractive, lol! for my eyes only...
Although other friends like swarovski crystals but these are some of my favorites. I'm still praying for a market either around our place or beyond the corners. It's my prayer that the Lord will just send someone to help me just at the right time. It's not so easy these days to have a good market, people will buy what they need first then later if there is extra they can buy what they want. I do hope that the Lord will just bless this little business of mine. I also wanted to bless others through this gift...

Last week I started making this blue with white pearls bracelet. Supposedly, I can finish it for few hours but because I was sick, I stopped making it and started to finish it this week. When I was still young, I was madly in love with the green color - when I get married I was attached to blue because my hubby loves blue.
While I was making this bracelet, I was thinking of having one for my myself because it looks so cool and cute as well, though it's simple but it looks nice when I started to wear it. As what I was mentioning, this is one of my outlets every time I felt bored of doing something, I immediately think of making a bracelet or a necklace if I have extra amount to buy for the materials. I need to save some amount for the materials alone - so I can't do it always.
I'm always excited when my friends will ask for the price and the more excited if they will order, lol! At least I can earn something even for small amount. I'm still on my way to make the prices online. I'm just trying some techniques in order to post the list of prices. Of course it's not so cheap but not also expensive. I was using quality materials like swarovski crystals, rice pearls and crystal pearls. I really enjoy making it.

Yesterday, as I was checking my friend's blog at Genuine Cuisine I discovered that swine flu is already around us. And I was quite anxious, but I kept praying for protection upon all of us, God is really our shield.
I never thought that swine flu is already between our reach. Swine flu is very dangerous these days. It's already a pandemic. Few weeks ago a friend of mine told me that there was a one-year old baby from Korea who was brought by his parents to America just to celebrate his first birthday. And went back to Korea after few weeks. Few days later, the baby became weak and was terribly sick. It was found out later that the baby had swine flu and had no chance to live longer. That's why swine flu is very dangerous now adays.
We need to be careful wherever we go, and pray for protection.

I missed this tree in the Phil. I love to eat this kind of fruit. For me, it's very delicious and yummy. It can also use to make buko salad, to mix with maja blanca or other delicasies that is so yummy.
When I was in high school, I used to go up to this tree, of course not the tallest one, but the one that is not so tall. It has a nutrition facts. I come across a Filipino site who wrote about coconut water. She shared about an American Nutritionist who wrote a book entitled " Coconut Water for Health and Healing".
There was a discovery that coconut water contains antioxidants as well as magnesium, potassium and other minerals and enzymes which may relax the lens proteins of the eyes, allowing them to realign and become transparent again. Fresh coconut water is needed.
“Coconut water may be an ideal eyewash or eye drop solution. If it can heal the damage caused by cataract, it may have other beneficial effects on eye health as well. Using it regularly may be an excellent way to prevent cataract, glaucoma, and perhaps other eye problems.”
I guess, this discovery is true, coconut has many proofs and is good for eating, cooking and healing. It has a lot of wonders when taken into the body. From the root to the last leaf, this tree can be very useful.

My friend is leaving for a while so I decided to make one for her. And I was glad that she liked it. I will post another one tomorrow. It's all gold and nice too.
