I need a hand!

Time is too short and the to-do list is too long. I need a hand...


Aside from the 'to-do list', there is still the 'want to-do list'. I wonder how can I do all that? Don't get me wrong, I love what I do. I need what I do. My work and everything is important. But hey, don't blame a girl if sometimes she wishes for a breather!

Love Life Cute-rs!

TV Pick: Grimm Season 1 Episodes 1 & 2

Last  week I've been thinking of watching Grimm. I doubt at first but last night I finally did.

Grimm is similar with Supernatural the series when it comes to solving crimes that are unexplainable. In Grimm the lead is David Giuntoli who is playing Nick Burkhardt, a detective. Nick is a Grimm and he can see what ordinary people can't. This is his way of solving crimes.

More Magnum Ice Cream Please!

I have to admit, one is not enough and I have to taste all 3!!! I thought I will be satisfied with tasting just one Magnum Ice Cream but I'm wrong. I want to taste all 3 variants. And so my hubby and I went to about 7 convenient stores just to buy those Magnum hype Ice Cream. You are asking why 7? -- all 6 convenient stores run out of stocks. Imagine 6 convenient stores, I was like 'is everyone really buying those ice cream bars? Well, I guess so, since I myself is dragging my hubby along and hopping from one convenient store to another and searching for those ice cream bars. -- talking about obsession huh?!

Happy 6th Birthday Suri Cruise (✿◠‿◠)

 Ok, ok I'm one with all those websites who greeted Suri on her fabulous birthday. Can you blame me, I can't help! LOL!

So here it is: Happy Birthday Suri Cruise!

TV Pick: Touch S1E5 and Game of Thrones S2E1

Hello cuters! How's your day? As for me, nothings beats work, but I gotta love it! So far I'm trying to catch up with my long line up of T.V. series.

Before I slept I watched Touch' Episode 5 and Game of Thrones Season 2 Episode 1. Touch's story has already the momentum started on my head while the first episode of Game of Thrones gives me confusion. I think I forgot the base story of GoT already.


What's new in True Blood Stars?

Gosh! I was so behind the news. I didn't know that True Blood stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer a.k.a Sookie and Bill are married. The on and off screen couple fell in-love in 2008 when they started filming HBO's True Blood. -- can you imagine that? I didn't!

And to think I've been watching this T.V. series since 2009 and I was so clueless.


Coming Very Soon: The Avengers


A few more days to go before 'The Avengers'! Who's excited? Me! (hands up in the air) LOL!



Marvel did a very good job on putting all super humans a.k.a. the avengers together in one grand movie. But wait, where is Spider-Man?

I keep my fingers cross as not to be disappointed. We've been thinking of reserving our tickets as early as today for guaranteed seats.

TV Pick: Touch Season 1 Episodes 2-4

Who's watching Touch, the series? Last night my hubby and I watched 3 episodes of Touch. Each episode tells a different story. You won't miss a major story if you skip one episode. -- well, not to mention if Martin Bohm, played by Kiefer Sutherland, will get full custody of his son Jake.

But don't get me wrong, I love Touch. I like how they link the story from one to another. This proves, one small act of kindness can go a million mile. You may or may not know it.

Tim Kring described the show as being "how our lives all TOUCH one another". ---awww touchy!

Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Anniston's Engagement Ring

Hello Cuters, what's up? Have you seen Angelina Jolie's engagement ring? Brad Pitt designed it himself. After the announcement of their big engagement last week people can't help but talk about 'The Ring'. Well aside from just talking about it, people tend to compare it with Pitt's ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston's engagement ring.

Afternoon Snack


Today like everyday is a normal day. I just thought about cooking spaghetti for afternoon snack. Just a random thought for my family.



 ~nooooodles~

I need to share this!

This topic has been long over due. Nevertheless I felt the need to share this. I've been a Harry Potter fan, am still and forever will be (woah!). I have seen the movies more than once each film and read the books more than once too.

What makes me want to talk about it again? Pottermore website -- yep, I signed up last night. Now I'm exploring the site. Am I too old for this stuff? What the heck!

Harry Potter had been over for months now, but I know it's story will live forever. Now I'm talking *wink*


Bb. Pilipinas 2012 Winners are:

Last week I watched Bb. Pilipinas 2012 by accident. Why by accident? -- I got nothing to watch on TV! Seriously! But for this week, it's not by accident anymore. I waited for Bb. Pilipinas 2012 to simply know who will win the competition.

Generations now a days! Hosts of this event calls the pageant "BBP" and calls the contestants "Binibinis" -- did I heard Xian Lim correct? Binibinis? Since when do we add 's' to Filipino plural words? (◐.̃◐)

Anways, I saw all 30 ladies and there are only few who caught my attention. My personal bet is candidate # 8 Nicole Schmitz


She also won Best in Costume. (see middle picture)


#8 is my bet but I like #2's costume:
