Mark Your Offline Homebased Business

Homebased businesses have been prevalent these days more than ever. It gets one to be at two places at the same time: home and work. While many of the homebased workers do so through the internet, there are still those who does by having their local neighborhood and nearby towns people their market. Probably a wedding cake maker, a dressmaker or a tailor, it is important that there is one of those house markers to be easily found. As with any business, referral plays a big role in making it grow. If people tend to get lost they will just find another one that can be easily found.

Looking for Birthday Cake Designer

My eldest son will celebrate his 8th birthday tomorrow. I have been looking for a cake designer lately, but I can not find anyone close to our place at short notice. I have a blogger friend Iris of Project Happiness who also bake fondant cakes (its her business actually) but unfortunately she cannot attend to my order as she is leaving or perhaps left already for the province. She was the one who made the cake and cute cupcakes for for Alexa's 3rd birthday in December 2011.










As the birthday is tomorrow, I don't have any choice but to order from Goldilocks or Red Ribbon. Hope someone can advise me a better cake shop.

This is my entry for Project 366 Blog Photo Challenge

Cookie Gift Baskets For Delivery

Do you want to surprise someone special with a gift because it is his or her birthday? Or perhaps just too shy to give it personally? Or if you're just too busy to go out and buy, why not cookie gift baskets delivered to your doorstep?

Food delivery comes so handy these days. Like last weekend, the boys wanted for lunch some fries, chicken and burger from Jollibee that comes with free toys. After calling, food is delivered right at your doorsteps.

As the birthday of my eldest is coming, will probably also order cookie gift baskets to be shared with the kids.

Potluck Dinner Every Saturday Night

Sunday is a family day, and for a working mommy like me - is a cooking day! This morning, I cooked a home-made, all time favorites of my kids - tinolang baboy and rice for brunch. We arrived late last night after attending a potluck dinner party at JP's house.



We bought pork meat for grilling, pizza and litson manok for sharing. Some prepared barbecue in sticks, grilled shrimp, spaghetti, and pork liempo with one bottle of beer. It was good for the kids too as they were able to play together.

This plan of potluck dinner every Saturday night is a good idea. Next Saturday, we will be at ME's house. After all these activities, I am pretty sure that I will gain weight. Perhaps, I should think now of buying yoga mats so I can enroll myself to a yoga class.

Cheap to Buy Fruits and Vegetables in Divisoria

We went to Caloocan yesterday to close one of our company's bank account. Its been a while since we had a transaction and the account is already a dormant account. Thus to save the deductions from being debited, we closed it for good and will just concentrate on other banks. Better than way!

Anyway, prior to going home, we went to Divisoria to pay a visit (psst shopping) to 168. But instead of going to 168, we gave 999 a shot. It was my first visit for Mall 999, its the mall beside 168. I was able to buy pajamas for my kids, outdoor shirts for my hubby, and other home accessories. I was able to buy custom name tags for my kids party. I am not sure yet if I will use this for Francis 8th birthday or will for Christoph's 7th birthday in June.

Just before heading home, there are several fruit and vegetable vendors just outside the mall. I was able to buy 3 pcs of cauliflower for only Php 50.00, 3 pcs of cabbage for Php 20.00, one portion of tomatoes for Php 10.00 and a portion of onions for Php 10.00. Amazingly cheap! For fruits, I bought 1 kilo of seedless grapes for Php 100.00, one pack of apples for Php 50.00 and 2 kilos of mango. Yum yum!

Planning a Romantic Date With Music for Valentines Day

Its Valentines Day soon and for sure, a lot of married couples, live-in partners or lets just say - sweethearts are already planning how to celebrate the special day of the heart. How about you? Have you booked any hotel or perhaps a dinner date with your partners?

A lot of hotels and restaurants are now offering a package deals for the couple. I have seen a few but never get to my mind of booking. I have bought several coupons from group buying deals like dinner in a 5-star hotels, cruise around Manila Bay and even a family dinner complete with suzuki micro grand digital piano and all for the bin. All expired now! What a waste of moolah!

When I was younger, it was always about eating out and disco dancing till the wee hours of the morning but now that we are married and have kids, we prefer a date with soft music around.

Now that hubby is in Dumaguete, even if I want to plan our valentines date, we might not be able to utilize again so better save the money for now and lets see come Valentines Day. :)
