On our last night we dressed for the Captain’s Dinner because You CAN’T wear shorts, t-shirts, cut-offs, tank tops, jeans or fit flops. For most nights, the dress code will be casual. This is what you’d wear to your favorite “casual” restaurant, such as sun dresses, a casual dress, casual pants such as khakis or cargo pants (but not jeans), skirt and top, or a pants outfit. For guys, polo shirts, button-up shirts and casual pants (not jeans) are fine. Continue reading
For many new moms, the decision about going back to work after having children can be a tough one. On the one hand many moms feel a pull towards the routine of working, while also feeling a worry that they will miss crucial moments in their kid’s childhood. Of course, some moms don’t have a choice when it comes to going back to work. Financial necessity often means that working is the only way they can support their children, especially for single parents.
So, what is the right thing to do? In reality, there is no right or wrong answer. Every family has their own dynamic. If your partner works full-time and is happy to continue doing so, then you may be able to delay your return to work and spend more time watching your children grow up. However, perhaps you have spent a lot of time working on your career and feel it would be detrimental to yours and your family’s future if you didn’t go back to work.
In the first instance, you should discuss the issue with your partner, as they may have to pick up the financial burden if you decide to stay at home. Friends and relatives can also be a valuable source of support. They know you best and may be able to give you a fresh perspective on things – as well as offering to babysit every so often if you do decide to go back to work!
Other people prefer to opt for more spiritual forms of guidance such as a tarot reading at TheCircle, for example, or religious guidance. Talking to other moms can also be extremely beneficial. Although every mom is different, it may give you an insight into how they coped, when and if they decided to go back to work.
Some moms may decide to go back to work straight away, whereas others may wait until their kids are at school. Don’t feel guilty whatever decision you make. Whether you choose to work to support your kids, or stay at home to look after them, the kids always come first!
During our trip aboard the SuperStar Aquarius part of our itinerary was to dock in Boracay for 8 hours.We were part of history as they made an inaugural call at Boracay for the first time last November 4, en route to its new homeport in Kota Kinabalu, the city capital of Sabah, Malaysia.
They have their own boat to ferry the passengers to the Boracay port
The 51,309-tonne cruise liner brought more than 1,100 Taiwanese,Hong Kong,Australia and Southeast Asian passengers fromKaohsiung,Taiwanto Boracay after her successful first call to Manilal ast Saturday November 2.
We received warm welcome from the Provincial Government of Aklan,MunicipalityofMalay, Philippine Department of Tourism and the media amid a traditional Boracay Ati-atihan performance put on by locals in vibrant costumes.
Philbert and Kuya Ariel went to the market to buy fish and shrimps for lunch
Philbert and Kuya Ariel had their Henna Tattoos done. The Henna artists listened to them and made unique designs that suited them perfectly. They provided good instructions so that the designs would last.
While I was waiting for them I just sat there and admired this view..
But for me the best part of my trip is my time spent with Philbert. Because traveling with my husband makes me appreciate the life we already have. I love travelling with him he’s so organized, knows how to unpack and pack a suitcase and most of all he go with you and eat in a restaurant that he doesn’t like just because you want to try something different for breakfast.
As any painter will tell you, one of the most difficult things to master is the use of light. Part of the reason is that it is so different in every setting. It changes based on the way that the clouds look, on the time of day, and on many other factors. You could watch the same spot for days and see different lighting almost every hour.

Adrianne is really the sweetest she never forgets to remind me just how much she loves me. She always loves to make me laugh with all her jokes, her stories and her antics too.
She’s very thoughtful and never forgets to send a thank you note to someone who gave her a special gift.
I am also happy that she always tries her best in school.I do get teary eyed when I saw her grades because I was never a good student. Nagmana sya sa daddy nya and thankful to Easy Math for teaching her the value of Study habits.
We love you so much Adrianne and we will suppport you in whatever it is that you want to do when you grow up. Whether it’s painting , dancing or music buffet b12 clarinet at music123
A well-constructed, portable toolbox is a valuable item for people in many vocations. A plumber needs a portable toolbox for all of the wrenches, pliers and other tools he or she needs to get the job done. Also, a durable toolbox would provide a secure place for all of the small replacement parts needed to repair toilets, faucets, etc. In order for plumbers to get their work done in an efficient way, they need a toolbox that houses what they need to accomplish each repair task. Here are some other professionals who often utilize a portable toolbox in the course of their work. Continue reading
Living with someone who has Autism is never easy. We have great days and we have challenging days and when I say challenging I mean really stressful kinds of challenges. That’s why it is beyond me why people would say I’d rather that my kids have autism than not be vaccinated. Continue reading
Twenty years after the ship’s maiden voyage from Singapore, the 51,309-ton luxurious vessel named the SuperStar Aquarius anchored at Pier 4 of the said harbour in Manila, Philippines. The capital city is one of the key stops of the SuperStar Aquarius during her 6 day – 5 night cruise that started in Hong Kong on October 31, voyaged to Boracay on November 3, and will ultimately go ashore at Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Which was our route by the way.
Our Tiny Room
Once we checked in and freshened up a bit we decided to explore the ship:
Waiting for our turn to eat Lunch
Look at these Fruit Carvings
They Have a Lot of Activities on The Deck
Philbert and Kuya Ariel Decided to Check Out the Videoke Lounge
We explored the ship before it got dark and It was really big. It had 13 decks and I never really felt like I was on a boat except of course if you go outside.
I just love the photo of the skyline where the clouds reflect the calmness of the sea.
Philbert was brave enough to try to do 2 jumpshots in a rom. I told him to do it again because the third time might be the charge. I’ll be blogging about other details of our cruise in the next few blog posts
Philbert and I were away for a few days and we really had a great time. I wanted to post details of what happened and what we did but of courtesy dictates that I wait til things blow over. So I’m just posting a few of our instagram photos of our trip:
This was taken while we were checking in and we still had to pay the 1,620 per person travel tax. We were there early so checking in was a breeze.
When they checked us in they gave us these cards which indicated which was our room key and we also need to use this when we need to purchase something. We are not allowed to pay in cash when we need to purchase something it always has to be swiped.
This was our ship of dreams (cue Titanic Music) the Superstar Aquarius. I love that this ship delivers on their promise that they do offer you a range of onboard activities and features. SuperStar Aquarius has something for every member of the family, with features such as a golf driving range, a video arcade, a spa, and a wine bar.I’m sure they even have an optical adhesive device somewhere. Will be posting more photos and stories soon..
