I don't know if I'm just disinterested or simply lazy to do all these things, maybe it's just the fact that hubs has his ways on this matter. Funny that I have been blogging for the past 2yrs and up to now I just care about posting stuffs. I leave all the tedious works to hubs and just do my own thing. Could it be because I used to hear him complain so much about how time consuming abd tiring setting up the blogs can take? Well I don't really know but no matter what I'll leave things as how it is now.
We gave it a shot with a little side business after college. If you remember I blogged about our chocolate business and it was a success. We only managed to be on business during the holidays because we were both working that time with very hectic schedules. Aside from our busy work schedules I had to deal with the restaurant/cafeteria business mom franchised too. I had to help with some marketing ideas like flyers, banners and restaurant website design. There were times when I had to entertain students asking for information about the dishes that were being served, if I remember it right it was Persian cuisine. I believe it's not very common and I honestly don't understand why mom went for it despite our disapproval when she asked us.
The food business didn't last so long unfortunately due to politics. There was a point when sales were reaching its peak but the other small concessions started to feel alarmed and appealed to the admin to restrict us from selling certain items and dishes. That took a toll on the business and in the long run put it down, mom had to close it down before she lose more if the operations prolong. It was bad politics and we could've been very successful with it if we didn't mind what the admin had to say though it's hard to work and operate when you know people will try to hinder your growth and success.
The first snow usually comes around Christmas, so Christmas is one bright spot. It's a time of togetherness and family. It's also a time of receiving and giving, two of the favorite things of almost everyone. As you enjoy this kind of activity, try to improve your attitude and think about all the wonderful things that happen over the Christmas holiday. You can make sure that the next time that snow falls, you'll be happy.
Be sure to curl up and watch plenty of DirectStarTV when it snows. This will give you the experience of watching happy and exciting things even when you can't get out in the world to do them yourself. Stay merry and bright, at least as much as possible.
I appreciate the guest post, Vito Rivers

I stumbled upon this old photo of mine when I was organizing my HD folders and right after seeing it again I knew baby has a shot almost looking like me here. Be the judge and spot the difference!
We enjoyed a delicious lunch in Chinatown the very first time he brought me there. Also got a tea set as a souvenir from Chinatown. On our next visit we made sure to eat the famous clam chowder in Fisherma's Wharf. That long walk from Pier 1 to 39 sure made us hungry! We still plan to visit Pier 39 again to take baby to the aquarium there and eat in Bubba Gump. There are many places there in SF like Japantown, Botanical Gardens, Science Museum, Exploratorium, Alcatraz and more to see for our next visits there.

Having financial freedom is something we all want to have. Not needing to worry about this and that and living a simple and stress free life.
However not everybody gets to have parents who can always sit down with them and help with their homework. Most parents now are very busy and really working very hard to raise a decent living for the family. As much as they want to really be involved with the school homework and projects time seems to be their foe. This doesn't mean you're a bad parent if you don't get to do this much with your kid, sometimes you just don't have a choice.
Not being hands on tutoring the kids can't be so bad with the help from tutorvista review. Tutorvista review is an efficient and practical way to teach the kids and help them with their homework.

There are many other online tutoring system out there but there are great positive reviews for tutorvista. The rate may seem fairly high but comparable enough if you get a private tutor.

I can understand if baby will ask for a pet in time, me and my siblings grew up having pets around like cats, birds, fishes, bunny and dogs. Sounds like a mini petting zoo? Go figure, we had all of those pets before. Actually they still have pets back home and Elisse is the one enjoying it. According to mom all our Dachshunds died already and only one left that's why my grandma got Elisse another dog in which I don't know what breed.
I am not totally against having a pet dog in time but we can only have it when we get our own place. They don't allow pets here in the apartment compound so even if we wish to have one, cannot be. The only way we can have pets right now is virtual just like what SIL has. She's got one of those Labradoodles games in Nintendo DS where she can have as much virtual Labradoodle dogs to take care of. Funny that even with the game alone she complains at times that it's like taking care of a real dog having to take them for walks, feeding them, playing with them and cleaning them up. Pardon me but I honestly forgot what the game's called I just refer to it as Labradoodle, sounds cute eh. =P
I guess no matter what any pet will require some care and attention may it be real or virtual. I believe we shouldn't have one if we are not willing to take full responsibility of taking care of it.
I have been checking out the neighborhood and so far so many houses and condos here are for sale. Unfortunately we're not yet ready and also the prices in this specific neighborhood is quite higher than other areas. It will require more savings and longer time to pay off the house if we push on getting it here.
Not only that we're financially unprepared yet but also lacking knowledge about mortgages for first time buyers. I need to study more about mortgage rates to better understand the deals of buying a house and loans. We will definitely need to loan for the purchase and knowing the ins and outs of first time buyer mortgages can be beneficial on our part. I just hope the market will still be good for us to buy our house in time.
during my walk one sunny afternoon;
I don't know how it's called,
for me it's pretty and precious like gold.
Having the business registered put stress up another level, time is critical and there's just so much to accomplish. So far other things like coordination, paperworks and such were already handled well. I get to focus with smaller details like the business cards, address sign and home address plaques. Good thing I can have these things ordered online once I finalize designs. The wall address plaques can help us with the advertising since we don't have a separate business office otherwise it won't really be known that there's such service provider within this apartment compound.
There are current advertisements for Audi A8-L, Toyota, Ford Ranger, Jeep, Subaru Wrx and other known car models. Though I don't usually pay so much attention with those car commercials but a specific one with the kid (I don't want to mention which in specific so no more info) simply disgusts me and hubs. Just that the values being taught there is terribly wrong. It can send wrong impressions to kids not being appreciative of what their parents can afford for them and what they have. The mocking of the parents and old cars are just way too inappropriate. We just hope that commercial will be off air soon.
Meeting went fine and they were really impressed with the presentation. It wasn't a heavy and stressful presentation, we even had pizza and commercial satellite tv on the side. Baby was really behaved and was playing with daddy there in the arcade area while we were finishing up with the meeting.
Mountain Mike's is always packed all week long with their lunch buffet specials and other promotions. Another reason why people love going there is because of the direct sat commercial direct tv where they can watch the latest sports happenings. It's not the only place I know where people flock most especially when there's major sports broadcast, dish business really pulls the crowd in most establishments. I am not really a sports fan therefore I go there for the food and the convenience of having it near our place. With that, there's nothing I can complain about.
There are so many known diseases out there but not all has known cure just like Multiple Sclerosis, an inflammatory disease in which the fatty myelin sheaths around the axons of the brain and spinal cord are damaged. It affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other. Once myelin is lost, the axons cannot effectively conduct signals anymore.
It's hard to tell when such disease strikes with such unknown cause and cure. Experts recommend MS diet which is not too far from any other diet. It is more of a balance of variety of foods; limit of fats, sugar and sodium; and if alcohol cannot be avoided, have it in moderation.
I haven't asked for their permission if I can post any images I worked on for the project so I can't really share it here just yet. The house isn't really very modern in design but the interior can make use of good modern touch like the fireplace, making use of stainless steel fireplace accessories can make a difference. The stainless steel mailbox and blomus stainless steel fireplace accessories will definitely compliment that house.
I'm glad that I was able to finish and submit everything, the feedback was great. They love the renders! I had more peace of mind knowing I've done my part so I took the chance to take a nap with baby earlier this morning. That felt good since I just had 30mins of eyeshut, by the time I was ready to sleep then baby woke up. He nursed from 5am on and off til 6am only giving me quite some time before I prepared breakfast and packed lunch for hubs. Tough night right?
Baby had few jackets but he's almost outgrowing all and those are good for spring and summer use only. I have to prepare him for the chilly winter days so I made a little shopping and got him some cute warm clothes. I took the opportunity to make use of my CC again to keep it active, that way I can improve my credit score and have better chances of getting approved for another major CC. I want to make it a sure shot when I get my free credit score it will be really clean and good so no reason or whatsoever to reject any application.
I ordered everything online so waiting for the delivery was the exciting part. Finally the packaged arrived but only to see the shoes sized 6-12mos are tad bit small for baby. I couldn't even put it on as it's very exact. Also the cute stripped full suit fits just right, I had to return it together with the shoes for size change. I think it's better to have some allowance since babies grow tooooo fast!
I love shopping for baby but I try to be careful with the spending or else I might get too excited seeing all those cute baby clothes and buy it all. That would be trouble! Baby has more than enough clothes and even has new clothes still kept, it would be very impractical.
Yesterday as I checked the mailbox, we received a small notice from an advertising agency about our business name registration. We're required to publish the name about 30 days after the registration for a certain period of time. Hubs was so happy after seeing the small notice and relieved that we can proceed with all of our business plans with that registration done.
This year has been a very blessed one for us. A baby, business, hubs still has work despite the shaky economy and many other blessings we have to thank God for. Hopefully my paperworks will be cleared already with the last procedures so we can finalize our visit back home.
Hopefully we can get a bigger space for our little boy soon enough. As much as we want to get settled in we do believe that things shouldn't be rushed without enough preparation. How we wish homes here in our area are priced like the Dallas homes for sale. Homes here are averaging to $500k+ and we're still waiting til prices drop more. Dallas real estate is also good and can't really complain with the Dallas homes for sale but location wise, not our ideal place to settle down. We're really happy where we are now or at least anywhere near this area as much as possible.
