What will your choice be – Positive or negative?

In life, everything is a choice. Whether you like it or not, you have to choose. There are two choices you need to do – to be POSITIVE or to be NEGATIVE. You have to choose the best that suits your life. If you feel that you are okay with negativity and that your life will progress with it, then, chose to be negative every day and drag people with your choice. BUT IF YOU FEEL THAT you will help yourself and others with you being the most POSITIVE person, then do it and make your life and your surroundings the most POSITIVE ONE. IT’S YOUR CHOICE!

My pending and unfinished cross stitches

These are few of the cross stitches that I have had for several years now. These are pending crafts that I need to finish. I also have another two in my sewing kit. I love needle works coz it’s like it’s a stress reliever for me. But I have lots of things to do and so for several years, I forgot about these things. I just got to see these when I was cleaning and that I hid these cross stitches inside my empty mini laptop box. Anyway, I’ve got to find some time to finish this coz I know when I’ll finish these cross stitches, these will be one of my beautiful masterpiece.

I am excited for my 18″ Doll that is similar to American Doll – Thanks God

I do love American dolls. But every time I will check on the website and on any online store, I can say to myself that I will just wait for some of my friends whom have daughters who will outgrow their 18” dolls.

Though, I already bought a doll in Kohl’s last December and I made it as a gift for my daughter but then that 18” has a small body which is different from American Doll.

I keep and keep on praying until these days. And tonight, I search online again to check for some low prices of American Dolls but then my search brought me to Target wherein I saw different choices of ‘Our Generation Dolls’. When I looked at it, oh my, it’s similar to American Dolls. Then I thought about my gift cards that I saved since last year. I said to myself, oh why not use it and buy one of these dolls.

I just need a good 18″ doll for some good reason.  I am happy that I am going to receive this ‘Our Generation Doll’ soon.

You see on my receipt, I paid ZERO as I used the gift cards. Isn’t that a good thing for shopping? Thanks God! (And thanks to my angels for this wonderful idea.) I am so happy right now.

Everyone has values

One of the people who inspire me is Nick Vujicic. I always check on his FB updates most especially when I am feeling down or feeling negative. And yesterday, the thing that caught my attention was this:

Every single human being has value. That value is not determined by how you look, what job you have, where you’re from, or where you were born. Material objects are fleeting, success is temporary, and outward appearances change. TRUE value is established and maintained by walking through life with Jesus Christ at the center! – Nick Vujicic

And yes, everyone has values. If only each person can stay positive all the time and if only a person can have so much love, there will be peace wherever that person is.

But why is it that it’s easy to think negative than to be positive? Why? When being positive feels good, why we can easily divert ourselves to negative and give chaos in our lives!

It’s fun in Pirates Cove Family Aquatic Center Colorado

This is in Pirates Cove Family Aquatic Center and that’s me during my birthday last year. My good friends that for me, they’re like my relatives treated me for free in this fun and beautiful place. They surprised me and they asked permission from my husband that if possible they will bring me to this resort. And in this photo, I just got out from the slowest slide the yellow color. The middle one was just mid and the violet one was the fastest slide wherein when you will use, your eyes will be wider the owl’s eyes. It is like it will detach your spirit from your body for several seconds. It’s a nice place and it was packed with lots of people because of all the nice amenities (such as lazy river, kiddie area, the dip pool, these slides and more). My food friends also rented a cabana for us to use. And from the bottom of my heart, I thank my friends Raquel, Glen, Lenlen and Shirley for bringing me in such place. At least for once in a lifetime fun experience, I was there with them.

Easy bacon chicken wrap

2/3 cups of brown sugar
2tbsp of chili powder
You also need pieces of toothpicks.
Pan covered with nonstick foil.
You can also use cooking spray so that the #baconchicken wrap won’t stick on the foil.

Preheat oven at least 350F
Mix the brown sugar and the chili powder
Cut the chicken into the desired size (or bite size)
You can wrap the whole bacon to the chicken meat or divide it in half. I usually divide the bacon in half as I only use bite size of chicken meat.
Coat it with the mixed brown sugar and the chili powder
Put it on the pan with foil
Bake it for around 30 minutes but I usually have it baked for around 40 minutes.
You can use it as an appetizer or you can just make it as your ulam (sudan, viand, snacks, whatever).
Enjoy and have a delicious meal!

Tips: If you are making lots of #baconchickenwrap and you are out of your mixture, just make another one and dip your wraps.

Note: Use chicken broth in cooking your rice so that it will taste yummylicious.
