Christmas is Here Again

3:56 PM 0 Comments
Christmas always makes me smile. But this year, we'll be celebrating the birth of our saviour Jesus Christ differently because of the precious baby that makes our family complete. I already got the check list and I should start ticking every box.

Christmas decorations are decided and will be sorted this weekend. Christmas dinner are being talked about. Though I need to read more about certain recipes to prepare for that day. Gifts are already chosen and will soon be wrapped. Places and friends to visit are listed.

There's a lot to be prepared. I know I still have a lot of time. For now, I will enjoy the cold weather while looking at the Christmas photos of past years.

It's been 4 years since my husband and I visited Paris. Every place are unforgettable and every spot are truly beautiful. While reviewing my posts about our Paris trip, I noticed that I missed to tell a story about our last day. I'll try to recall it by just looking at the pictures we've taken. While doing that, allow me to share with you the links of Day 1 to Day 3 of such trip.

New Decorations This Christmas Season

9:11 PM 1 Comments
Christmas holiday is fast approaching. In some countries, malls and houses are already decorated. While in other countries, the Christmas ornaments and decorations will be out after the halloween. Same thing goes in our house. I will wait for halloween to be over before hanging bits and pieces.


http://www.christmasplace.com/ gave me an idea of using personalized ornaments and decorations. We will also get fresh Christmas tree this year to mark the coming of our bundle of joy. Besides, it smells good inside the house. We just have to remind ourselves that we need to buy it from vendor who offers retrieving them after the season. Otherwise, it will be a problem disposing them. 

Aside from all the colorful things around the house, it is the right time to start buying gifts for family and friends. I started three months ago. That's late compare to others who started filling the sock first quarter of the year. Making a list is a great idea as it will help you not to forget someone and to manage your budget accordingly. 

How about you? When will you start decorating for Christmas? Have you started buying gifts or you're done with the shopping already?


Kilkenny Castle Revisited

Kilkenny, Ireland is a very memorable place for me as it was the last long trip I had before I got pregnant. It is the home of a beautiful Kilkenny Castle built in 1195 by William Marshal, the 1st Earl of 
Pembroke.

Wedding as You Wish

5:02 AM 0 Comments
Wedding is one religious event I love to attend. All around the occasion, you can feel the love overflowing. They said that the bride is the center of attraction. Though, I don't think so, I can see that in some way.


A bride may become very specific on what she wants on her wedding, same as the groom. There's a famous website where you can shop for some bride apparel, lingerie, gifts, favors, accessories, swimwear and shoes. You can even have them personalised as you wish. You can check  www.classybride.com for more of these.

Traveling around Ireland will not be complete if you did not get any souvenirs. During the month of March, sidewalk market such as the picture above is common.

Example €10 for 2 pieces of bags, hats or shirts They also have custom tote bags wholesale which you can buy for your friends back home.

Limousines can be exhilarating and make the night a whole lot more exciting, but they can also be expensive.

Cliff walking is one my favorite thing to do during summer and spring here in Ireland. Aside from enjoying lovely breeze and sceneries, it's the best time to practice photography. I can't actually wait for summer to come as the cold weather nowadays is truly restricting me to go out.

So for now, I'll just have to look at our photos of places we enjoyed visiting during lovely days.

Killruddery Gardens display loads of statues in different spots. For aesthetic purposes, they really made the whole place very interesting. Though it could have been more interesting if there's some notes about certain piece. Nevertheless, my tour of the gardens got more pleasing to the eyes because of these pieces in every corner.

Music Enthusiasts on the Streets

It's very common nowadays to see a person or group perfoming on street. Some of them sing and play instruments. I've seen different people with their instruments. Sometimes  those instruments looks very nice and really prestine like the  clarinets at guitar center .  You can truly feel the passion of the performer in every note.

People who performs on the streets do it for different purposes. First is to promote their album, second is to showcase their talents in exchange for few coins. And third to solicit money for charity.

Inside the vicinity of Killruddery House and Gardens, the real catch, the French Classical Gardens. A French garden named Bonet designed the fine gardens in 1680s. He was the same gardener who worked at Versailles in France.

Live Music

During non-busy days, hubby and I love to go to bar or some restaurant to enjoy few drinks and to listen to very good live music. We are so amazed with the great performers. Not only they can sing well but also they can play their instruments brilliantly.

I noticed that performers used certain tools to make their instrument can be heard well and perfectly. I wonder if performers use tools like golden cello mad professor  to make their instruments sound so perfect.

If you already have a skateboard and some great skating shoes, you may not think that you have any use for a skateboard shop. Of course, it’s nice to stay on top of the trends, and who doesn’t want to add to their skateboard collection? Still, too many skaters don’t take advantage of the many resources available at their local Atlanta skateboard shop. If you don’t frequent it often enough, you will miss out on the many deals, potential new friends, and information that could be very helpful to you about skating.

Tower Bridge

England is a very lovely country filled with amazing structures. In London alone, different spots captured the hearts of the tourists. I for one fell in-love with the famous Tower Bridge. You probably heard about it in a nursery rhyme, "London Bridge is Falling Down".

This symbol of Victorian London was completed in 1894. It consists of two Gothic towers which basically holds the mechanism to raise the roadway. In doing so, large ships are then permitted to pass through between the towers.

It is quite possible that you thought there would be more time to ride your Triumph in Charlottesville. However with the country in the middle of a deep freeze, it is time to put that motorcycle into storage until the next season. Unfortunately, you may not be equipped to store your motorcycle out of the elements. For those cases, you will want to find a full-service company that can help you get the most out of your motorcycle.

Places to Visit this 2014

8:02 PM 0 Comments
Hubby and I didn't get chance to go out of the country last year. But we were blessed to see different beautiful places around Ireland. This 2014, we hope to visit other counties of Ireland and if God will permit some places outside the country. 



So many great things are sure to come this year. I can even see a very tight schedule for me and my husband. But as always, we can find time to make room for short trips here and there. Traveling is such an amazing way to unwind and enjoy what we've worked so hard for. 

Places we hope to visit this 2014

  • Portrush , Northern Ireland
  • Ring of Kerry , Republic of Ireland
  • Re-visiting various places around Ireland
  • Palawan, Philippines
  • Might be re-visiting Boracay, Philippines
  • Spain
  • Switzerland
  • Singapore
  • Hongkong

As I said, so many things will happen this year. I am not sure how can we visit all these places. We must monitor our time religiously. But I really hope that we can push the Switzerland trip, not to buy a raymond weil watch but because it's the closest we can get with my current condition.

We are also crossing our fingers to visit back home and see places like Palawan and Boracay. Singapore is also a possibility as my sister and her family lives there. 

For now, we need to save and plan.

Strolling Around On Winter

2:12 PM 0 Comments
When there's nothing much to do at home and there's no scheduled trip somewhere, our feet will only lead us to three spots; city centre, park or shopping centre.

Strolling on the busy streets of Dublin is pretty cool as different shops have interesting displays on their windows. While roaming around the park, allows me to appreciate nature even more. I know, shopping centre is not a good idea when you don't want to hurt your pocket. But window shopping won't hurt either. 

Just want to share with you few things we came across during our recent city trips.
