If money is not an issue, I would travel a thousand miles just to spent a day with my mother on her birthday. Unfortunately, I can't afford to go visit Philippines this soon. I have been already last year November and not planning to go any time soon, maybe in 2 years time. Anyway, I have send my mother dear some cash so that she can buy herself anything she fancy in her birthday. I might even send her the blackberry play book as well as some flowers and chocolates. And oh maybe include some knobs and handles for my brothers as it could be useful for their jobs. I better check out at http://www.reidsupply.com for better deals as I am planning to buy a few. It's always best to know the price difference from various sellers. To shop around is always wise ;)
I was head over heals when I finally step a foot up to the Prime Meridian of the World. It took me all these years to see where time has started. And it felt so amazing that I even spent longer than plan because I enjoyed too much whilst fostering my curiosity all afternoon. Having been able to see the Royal astronomers incredible inventions and works was truly magnificent. I couldn't help myself but admire and praised the wondrous place. It's truly amazing. I felt like I was back hundreds of years ago walking around the place. It was one of the most incredible place I have visited...and counting as I continue to believed :)
Spring break is over and though we only went not to far away from home is still we enjoy everything about it. Myself love historical places - I don't know where it came from but I am most fascinated by history. But I believed that there is more to see around us and all we need to do is open our eyes. Great Britain has it all, leisure parks, historical buildings, beach, shopping centre, restaurants and many more. I can only count the places where we went over the years and hardly scratched the surface yet. We are hoping to see more of the UK next month during bank holidays. Maybe start scratching Scotland, we will see... Anyway, I better finish looking this cheap business cards from zooprinting.com so that I can order some for hubby's work then go to bed. I'm kinda sleepy as it is very late at night already. Got a busy day ahead!!

Drove 5 hours to Devon and stayed for couple of days down there and headed straight to South right after big lunch. Stopped by at Stonehenge as plan, took few pictures and carried on to further South to spend few days with friends while the husband flew to Kenya. As always the worlds oldest monument amazed me. I had a great time, more pictures later because at the moment we are here in London with the family for our late Christmas do.

It's really hitting to midday here and still I am here sitting in the breakfast table browsing aimlessly. Not knowing that in an hour we should be at the church for the Easter Fun Monday. Well, to all people that are looking for recording equipment you might want to check it out. I do fancy to own one for my kids to use it but its just not in our priority list at the moment but who knows in the future when we will have a spare cash to spend, right? Anyway, I'm off to get my self ready now and hope that your Easter Monday will be as fun as ours. Keep warm! X
British weather is simply unpredictable! After weeks of snow and days of speculations if whether we will have a sunshine on Easter weekend then it turned out to be yet another most lovely Easter we ever celebrated. Thanked God for giving us the sunshine that we all wish for, after weeks of having gloomy days. Though its not equally warm but still it's way better than pouring snow. Mother Nature knows best! Definitely, we are sprinkled with new hope on Easter time. Hope this bring us a more positive vibes and be more forgiving! Life is simply beautiful!

Traveling with children is never easy. As much as you love your kids, let’s face it: travelling with them can be a strain. It requires heavy organisation and the artillery of colourful and musical toys and sleeping accessories to keep them entertained and quiet. Even then, unexpected tantrums or accidents can cause deviations from your regimented plan and put a dampener on your holiday. If you are more relieved to get the kids’ home at the end of your holiday than you enjoy the holiday with them, you’ve got a problem. Rather than lock yourself away over the Easter weekend, finding ways to childproof your long weekend break is a much better way to approach the idea. And it’s not as hard as it seems. As long as you’ve got the flight and the accommodation covered (check offers from Superbreak here), the rest should be easy.
Childproof the flight
As mentioned earlier, organisation is key when planning a holiday with young children. Preselecting your seats on the plane is always a wise move, as rather than rushing for convenient seats when the gate opens, you’ll already know that you’re going to be sat together. Before you book anything, contact the airline and ask about their young traveller policy. Some airlines offer discount seats for young children and pre-boarding for families with babies. Also, check with the airline with regards to their seatbelts policies. Some airlines require you to bring your own, while others supply them. Make sure you’re stocked up on supplies. Bring more nappies than you expect to use, a change of clothes, zip-lock bags in case clothes get soiled, snacks to take on board, a plastic food container (for half-eaten food), baby wipes, and some form of amusement such as colouring books or an iPad. One more thing – to avoid ear pressure problems during the flight, have your child chew on a lolly or suck on a bottle during take-off and landing.
Childproof the hotel room
Young kids are notoriously good at stumbling across dangerous situations. When left to roam in a hotel room, there are numerous safety risks (sharp edges, electrical cords, balconies) which your child is sure to uncover before you’ve even realised they’re there. First, prior to arrival, request a crib for the room. Once you’ve checked in, have a quick look around the room for any obvious dangers – even under the bed, in case a stray pin or tablet has fallen there. Some parents like to bring their own safety aids, such as electrical outlet covers and toilet lid hatches, with them, while others are happy to make do with duct tape. Covering electrical outlets is one of the most important points to do. During your stay, keep the bathroom door closed, the balcony furniture on it well away from the edge and the door locked shut. If the room is tiled, make sure to keep the floors dry to avoid any accidental falls – for you and the kids. Also, keep an eye on the minibar and if you’re worried, ask the hotel to remove the alcohol from it, or hide it somewhere out of reach yourself.

Once upon a snow in March at my very view while sitting for my little one playing at their playroom. After contemplating, I quickly grabbed my camera at my bedroom with my EF 70-300mm Canon zoom lens and these are the shots maximum 300mm. Just added photo actions to it and tada...
Although, I haven't been to the top of Snowdonia still I'm lucky enough to get this lovely view from our top floor. Not bad, huh?

Studying life in the UK made me learn many things including how important it is for motor vehicles and cars to have insurance. But for me, insuring your car is not only because of the law but as a protection to the entire family and your love ones. Other things I learnt is the importance of having/wearing proper gear when traveling with kids and as well as pets. Mind you, back in the country where I was born and grow-up seat belts and pets gear transportation is not a big deal unlike here in UK is it a must or you'll get prosecuted. That is why kids need to have a proper booster seats in the car when they are under 12 or below the height of 4'5 and the same goes with pets - it is a must have for a special carrier boxes to transport them safely and legally from one place to another. My kids have pets, hamster and gerbils. Well, we had the hamster traveling with us once for at least 5 hours and good thing we fed her before leaving as is it very important for any pets to be fed when traveling (just like kids) and of course got her the special safe transporting box from the local pet shop. Yes, having kids and pets at the same time maybe quite challenging but thank goodness for all these special gears that provides them the comforts and safety they needed most especially in longer journeys. Other than that is the necessity of having car insurance. That is why when buying cars it is always best to have check if its properly insured. It can get costly if you don't compare car insurance first of all as we all know that there are certain cheap auto insurance company out there and rest assure we can find the cheapest car insurance we prefer to have. As I've said it is always safe and secure to have our cars insured as it gives that protection that we aim to have in our day to day life. Especially when it involves long hours of driving. Life is a series of uncertainty and we never knew what comes next so it is always wise to play safe.
