Fund raiser for typhoon victims

With all the calamity going on in the Philippines from typhoon Haiyan, I thought about some ways my family can help to people affected by the recent disaster.

Here's the t-shirt I've created...

We thought about some kind of fund raiser and donate the proceeds to a local organization up in the Redwood City, CA that will make sure the proceeds get to the proper people. I thought of selling t-shirts as a way to generate funds but it can be pretty expensive to buy different sizes of tee shirts and have them printed with your design logo. Also it can be difficult distributing the finished product as well as collecting the money. If you try to use an online printing website to make your tee shirts, you risk a low quality product because not many online printing companies give quality printing at an affordable price. Then I learned about Teespring. They help me turn my tee shirt fundraising charity into a reality by not having to have any up front cost. They even gave several ideas of other people using their website to promote teeshirts.

One was a little girl who had an amazing opportunity to travel to Budapest and Hungary this summer with the Touring choir of the children’s chorus of Maryland. She had printed tee shirts with the words “Bunny Girl Gings" in Hungary.



The other idea was about some parents that wanted to bring their new adopted baby home from the hospital but couldn’t since they didn’t have enough money to pay the bill so they had a fundraiser to help pay to bring home their new baby. The tee shirt say’s “ Love makes a family", we’re adopting.

Tonight’s dinner

It’s raining today and cold; I thought soup would be perfect for tonight’s dinner. So, I made my comfort food and I am very fortunate that I have all the ingredients. I am also thinking of my husband when he comes home from work and with this kind of nasty weather all he would want to do is have some hot soup. We call this soup “tinolang manok” or chicken soup. I use chayote and moringa horseradish tree leaves. This is one of the most popular soups for Filipinos; we pretty much make this almost everyday back in the Philippines. This is one of my husband’s favorite Filipino food.

Looking for fancy dresses?

Many people here in America are so busy these days doing shopping for the Thanksgiving Day. A lot of family reunions and get together parties will be going on. We don’t partake to it though because this kind of celebration is not biblical and besides we are thankful for what we have every single day. Anyway, I know many women out there are so occupied shopping for their party outfits/dresses for these coming holidays. Well, I’m hoping that they will find some time shopping online because there are a lot of nice dresses that they might find appealing to their standard. Like for instance, the Dress First website offers variety of dresses for all occasion. I received an email from them about their spring collections. I was browsing at their website and I found lots of dresses that I would love to wear, I just don’t have the budget to make purchase.

They have wedding dresses collection and dresses for special occasion including prom and cocktail dresses. I want to look good in those dresses just like the models, which means I have to work on my weight and become as sexy as them too (wishful thinking). LOL! They are offering up to 60% off with free shipping, that’s a lot of savings right there. Take advantage of it while it last. Their dresses are very unique in style; elegant looking and whoever wears their collection will surely look gorgeous and lovely.

Their wedding dresses are all beautiful. The details, designs are extremely amazing and they’re very affordable too. I will absolutely refer this website to my friends and family. If you shop at their website I’m certain that you will not ignore their collection. I suggest that you check their website out and browse it yourself so you will know what I’m talking about.

Baking time!

This is the time of the year where baking is very popular. Baking helps the people at home to have a nice and warm atmosphere without using any heater. My husband bakes most of the time but not breads though. I hope my husband makes these bread one of these days. These are Filipino breads and they are really good. Well, if my husband can’t bake I can always get them at my favorite place, Valerio’s bakeshop over at seafood city. These are good with coffee. I took pictures of it when my friend asked me to buy some for her. I particularly love the ensaymada and the Spanish bread.

Just a thought

My husband and I thought about retiring in the Philippines that way we can be more closer to our immediate families and our kids can play with their cousins, but after all the many destructive natural disasters had stricken my country and have caused damages in many cities made us think twice. I don’t know if it’s a good idea to move over there. I’m not saying that I don’t love the place where I grew up with anymore but I’m just concerned about our safety over there. Anyway, if in case we decide to move over there, for good, we will have to take some of our stuff with us if not all. It will cost a lot of money to hire a moving company to help us move and transport our properties safely. Hiring companies like ADT Demenagement et Entreposage Inc. would be our best option if they offer service worldwide. They are known for their skills and professionalism when it comes to business. They never fail to give customer satisfaction, which every client would want to experience it firsthand. For those people who are living somewhere in Montreal and you are looking for a reliable moving and storage service, you can check déménageurs montréal for further details, they might be the company you are looking for.
