Wishy Washy Liquid Hand Soap

Wishy Washy Liquid Hand Soap

I discovered this Liquid hand soap from a friend who gave it to my daughter last Christmas. I was surprised how good it smelt after I used it. It had this refreshing smell that lingered on even after washing my hands.

It comes in different scents, Grapefruit (which is my favorite) Cuucumber, Bubble Gum, Lemon and Tangerine. It can be bought in any Handy Man Stores in the Philippines and it is made in the Philippines, so I doubt it if they sell it outside the Philippines but Im still sharing it especially for those who live here 🙂

I just love using this 🙂

Every Sunday after church, Zoie (my grandchild) asks me to by taho (it’s some sort of tofu drink with syrup)for her.   As we walk going to the car she would ask me to take a photo of her.  Its her photo shoot day, she likes posing like a model (you can see in her pic).  She is one of the best blessings that God has ever given me.

View of the beach!!! Pico de Loro Beach and Country Club, Hamilo Coast, Nasugbu, Batangas

Yesterday we had to go to our project in Nasugbu, Batangas in the Philippines at  Pico de Loro Beach and Country Club at Hamilo Coast.  I always fall in love with our project over and over again every time I go there.  I Live in Metro Manila and work for SM Land which carries Pico de Loro, Hamilo coast as one of their leisure projects.  Our office is in Manila and since we are in sales, we often go to Pico de Loro to bring our clients there.  What wonderful work I have, I have the city and the beach to enjoy while working 🙂

Let me show you how beautiful our project is before I show you what I wore today for work.  If we have to go to Pico de Loro, we are required to wear light-colored slacks and white or blue collared shirt (or a collared shirt with our logo on it) So anyway let me take you on mini a tour of Pico de Lore at Hamilo coast.

Soon to be Marina at the Papaya Cove at Hamilo Coast

*Its More Fun In The Philippines*

Sunday is the best day of the week!!!

Sunrise is more fun in the Philippines :)

Sunrise is more fun in the Philippines 🙂

Sunday….Is my favorite day of the week.  It’s a non stressful free day.  No appointments, No business calls, No dress code and NO TRAFFIC!!!  Sundays are more fun in the Philippines 🙂

I look forward to Sundays.  Being a single mom and grandma (Yes, I am a granny goose LOL) Sundays are usually spent with my daughter and granddaughter ( or more often than not with my granddaughter)  Its church time and bonding time in my book 🙂 Today was another fun time.  After church we headed to the mall to have lunch and did some window shopping (which i like doing lol)  Zoie (my grandchild) had a blast with cupcakes and Ice cream ( i told you it was a free day LOL )

Talk about Sugar high!!!  We went and checked out this new stall at the mall that makes candies right before your eyes (make it candies).  Zoie was glued watching them make candies.  It was actually interesting.  Boy!!  Can I just tell you that candies are made with 80% sugar.  tsk, tsk, tsk!!   Think a gazillion times before you pop another candy in your mouth 🙂

finsihed products of the "Make it Candies" store

Remember, think a gazillion times before you have another candy LOL!!!

Every Sunday,  Zoie likes to take pictures and pretend to be a model.  She calls it our photo shoot.  This I enjoy doing with her (will post another blog about our Sunday photo shoots) It documents her growing up years and I’m going to show it to her when she grows up.  I’m sure she’ll be embarrassed or maybe have a good laugh of how she was when she was a kid.  I treasure moments spent with her and I’m very thankful and feel blessed that I have a grandchild in somewhat a young age.  I had my daughter when I was 18 🙂  (will post another blog on that too lol)  When my daughter (Aimie) Told me that she’s having a baby, I cried a bucket for many reasons.  One of my lame reason was…Oh my!!  I’m going to be a grandma and thought usually when you’re a grandma that means that your old and your life is at its end.  I was proven wrong!!!  It gave me a new meaning in life, a new-found joy unknown to me before. So now, I cherish each day and look forward to building more memories.

Photo shoot time for Zoie :)

Zoie wants me of course to model with her LOL!!  I give in right away.

Sundays too, is time to visit other relatives ( it’s not every Sunday though) Today, we also visited my Uncle who suffered from a stroke years ago.  Because of his stroke, he cant really go out that much.  His family prepared dinner for us and he was glad to see us.  It was also very nice to reconnect with our cousins and catch up.  I thank God that we were able to visit our Uncle and make him smile even for a while.  God truly has His ways.

With my Uncle's family

Too bad we were not able to take pictures with my Uncle since he got tired and went to bed after dinner. It was really great to see him and his family.  It made us rekindle fond childhood memories and that’s when you realize you are blessed.

Sundays are the best, don’t you think so???
