University Of Santo Tomas Quadricentennial Year

Last week, University of Sto. Tomas celebrated its quadricentennial or 400th anniversary. The university is the oldest university in the Philippines and Asia. UST is also the only university to have been visited by two popes three times: once by Pope Paul VI on Nov. 28, 1970, and twice by Pope John Paul II on Feb. 18, 1981 and January 13, 1995. This quadricentennial year, Pope Benedict XVI greeted the university by a video message and sent a representative instead.

TABASCO® Original Red

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.

Our weekend will not be complete without a pizza. Oh yes, we are pizza addict. My older daughter even celebrated her 12th birthday with pizza party and you know what? We all love Tabasco in our pizza and we cannot eat it without TABASCO® Original Red even if the pizza house offers their own hot sauce. Using other hot sauce will ruin the taste of our pizza. It's not just our favorite food but our breakfast condiment too. Tabasco Original Red just spiced up our meal.

If there is one sauce that is not missing in our meal, that would be TABASCO. Since it's football season and Superbowl is just around the corner, wouldn't it be perfect to grab a pizza with Tabasco Original Red?

Original TABASCO® Original Red is "So Much More than Hot. " Food just gets hotter with Tabasco Red and enhances the food you get the best of every bite. Sandwiches, barbeque, pizza, soup, name it. It tastes best with Tabasco Original Red. I never forget to savor Tabasco Red and even my kids love it too. Serving international food was part of my job and that was more than two decades ago and Tabasco has always been present in the recipe.

Hey, please check out the Game-Day Party Menu page for some simple ideas and recipes that your guests and family will surely love. Have your Pizza Perfected with Tabasco Original Red. I tell you, Pizza has never been this good ever. You will discover more and you will be surprised how Tabasco Original Red enhanced the taste of any recipes.

To give you a little info about Tabasco. Tabasco Original Red was the first sauce introduced by the Mcllhenny family back in 1868 and continues to be their most popular sauce of 6 total sauces. TABASCO Original Red is not about heat for heat's sake. It's about what heat does to the flavor of food. The simple combination of salt, pepper and vinegar are perfected in a 3-year aging process that produces a hot sauce with the uncanny ability to bring the most out of your food. Other sauces add their own specific flavor to food. TABASCO Original Red simply enhances the flavor of food.

Best Ceiling Fan!

How's the weather in your end? Are you experiencing the same bed weather today? I am now enjoying the cool breeze. The snow mountain in the other part of the world must be starting to melt again and here we are embracing the weather as the cool wind blows heading the direction towards the country. And what could be the next temperature to wait. Summer. The time to cool down the house and avail Hansen Wholesale Ceiling Fans. It makes me get irritated fast when the sun is just too hot to bear. It is safer and wise to use ceiling fans especially during this time of the year. If you are considering of purchasing ceiling fan too, then Hansen Wholesale is the place to go. It's all in the store and you can choose whatever kind of fan you want. The company has created the very first ceiling fan website almost 15 years ago and has been helping people like you find their ceiling fans online.

I honestly don't have any of them in my house. Ceiling Fans of different kinds are now available online. I trust them than any other companies and I am considering Emerson Ceiling fans to cool the house even before summertime comes. I want fans that are quiet and with remote control. Before making any purchase I always make a research for fans which are energy efficient. My bills are expected to get higher every summer so purchasing a Ceiling Fan with low maintenance is such a relief for me.

I like the Casablanca Ceiling Fan too. I am checking now the required minimum height and its features. If it doesn't fit, I 'll check the alternatives instead. Ceiling fans for outdoors are available too. It can be in gazebo or lawn area. It is just so amazing that you can choose different kinds of ceiling fans online. Find out who makes the Best Ceiling Fans here!

Girls Talk: Work Resolutions

I don't make resolutions because I know that I really cannot fulfill all the resolutions I will outline like what happened since I started making one. But I'll try my best this year. We are all working mothers, only some are not really getting paid off for their hard work. From laundry to online task, being moms are really tough doing a multitasking job. I am not just sleeping the whole morning while waiting for my children to come home from school. I sit down for many hours not only to sip a cup of coffee but in front of electronic keyboard to earn money too.

As a sahm 1)wake up thirty minutes earlier and let not my alarm clock snooze twice and end up sleeping again and late, resulting to rush my children in going to school 2) plan a weekly menu and weekend activity for family 3) attend to my children's need and balance my time online and offline world

As a wahm 1)post my tasks on a timely basis 2) visit and join weekly meme to know more about my fellow bloggers 3) update my four blogs regularly and post a more worthy entries to read

There. I'll see and check by 2012 what I have achieved for this year. Goodluck.

Elegant Table Settings

I was blog hopping last night when I stumbled in one site featuring Christmas sparkling table settings. She linked the post into our weekly meme with all ruby color and I got interested in purchasing the same elegant dinnerware that she used. I thought of buying a new set too. Aside from the food that I usually prepare, I have this elegant dinnerware to surprise my family and friends. If I could find a cheaper value, I'll look for the bright colors but my preference in general is still a traditional round shape. I am browsing now about the sale items online to get more tips and info on buying beautiful dinnerware. I am still planning right now but I'm already excited to purchase a new set. It is not about impressing my guest for new dinnerware but more of fulfillment for myself when I'm in the mood to do an extraordinary table settings even on ordinary days.

Canal Holiday

I probably would be the happiest if my job includes traveling around the world. I envy those people who can travel or spend a vacation in any parts of the world whenever they want to. I can only fulfill that dream by virtual trip or by visiting other site who blogs about their trip. I just visited a blogger friend's site who went to Marco Venice for a canal holiday. He shared few of the pictures and the views were breathtaking. I can just imagine how enchanting it was taking a boat in a peaceful water crossing the stunning scenery. Gondolas on the Grand Canal are just really romantic for me. Everyone dreams about Venice. Because I read a lot about Venice, I am now speaking like I've visited the place before. I cannot lie to myself anymore that I'm just dreaming endlessly here. The only reality I can take right now is taste the Italian pizza, baguettes and cappuccino.

Mellow Yellow Monday

I am not familiar with different kinds of plants and flowers. I saw this plant (or flower?) when we went on a picnic last Christmas in Tagatay. Can you help me name this plant?

City Breaks

Do you have any special plans for this summer? Where do you plan to stay? I always wanted to have a vacation in any top destinations in the country. Summer is definitely the best and favorite season of the year for me. It is the only time where I can spend quality time with my family without any pressure to think about. Spending vacation in an affordable apartment for city breaks is such an ideal package for a holiday. We all love spending holidays in an exclusive resort but as much as we want to, we always end up booking in a place where we don't originally plan to stay. Now you can have a vacation where your stay is just as unforgettable as as staying in a luxury hotel. All you need to do is plan ahead of time and arrange all your travel bookings so as not to rush you out when peak season for summer vacation comes.

Business in 2011

The new year has begun. Many people think that the economy is doing good these days. People even with bad credit find a way to avail loans just to open up a business. For those who have already business whether big or small and others who are just starting, believe that investing money in the market or opening a small retail store this year will be good. According to a survey 9 out 10 people believe that economy will do good this year. Many of them are very hopeful for a progressive year believing that if they put a business today, it will give them lots of money all through out the year. It wasn't that easy as they think. In putting up a business, they have many things to consider first. We cannot just believe in luck. I just browsed a site about the headlines in business today. Seems like I'm liking the thread. Anyways, business checks are a must in any kind of business. Ordering these checks is very accessible online. You can even order any type of business check that you want.

so today is my blog anniversary

I didn't know this until Teena of Toronto left a comment today. Thanks to you Teena for reminding me of my blog anniversary. I headed to my first post and checked the date and some of my January posts too. I just picked this entry dated January 15, 2009 reposting today..

Manila on its coldest 16 degrees, baguio 6 degrees. In tropical country, this season is the coldest, Jan - Feb.. In Benguet, the weather drop down to 3 degrees, and the vegetable farm is now frost but will not affect the supply yet. I have my long due wish to visit Sagada, I do hope to embrace the 4am temperature there sometime.

The country will have to brace for more cold weather until next month,as per PAGASA. Wow, thanks.. were enjoying the cold weather. Our Meralco bill drop to only half compare to our last month bill. We're not using aircon or electric fan anymore..


Manila is experiencing 21 degrees while Baguio is 9 compare to 2009 with 13 degrees and 3 degrees at its coldest. The weather is warmer today but the frostbite in Benguet already affected the harvest of fruits, vegetables and flowers by which we expect less supply by February. Also, I haven't visited Sagada yet and it has been two years already since my last post about my long due wish to visit the place they call heaven on earth.

No more recap of what I have posted (707 posts) in my two years of blogging. To Embrace Life, Happy Blog Anniversary!
