My Starbucks Card

On our way home from a trip to Laguna, my family and I stopped over at Starbucks to get Rix and me some coffee. The kind cashier/barista offered me the Starbucks card and I chose this dainty design.


Upon registration, I was rewarded with a free grande beverage of my choice. A green tea frap was what I decided on days after I registered my card. The offer was valid for 60 days. 

I must remember to treat my Starbucks card as cash as I have loaded it so I could use it in the future and get rewards. What specific rewards? I haven't figured it out yet.

This month, my birth month, I will be treated to a slice of cake together with a purchase of drink. I'm looking forward to it!

Pregnant Chicken

I chanced upon this site while surfing for maternity photos. It was hilarious! Plus, it could be helpful to disperse or confirm some common pregnancy do's and don'ts. Like, is it safe to drink herbal tea? To poop hard? I, myself, have a lot of unanswered questions regarding what is safe or not during pregnancy and people say tons of different things. According to Amy of Pregnant Chicken:
I'm not a doctor. I'm not even close. This is only a compilation of the things I found online but surf for yourself and decide which things you think you should avoid during your pregnancy and things that you shouldn't. All I can guarantee is that down the road we'll all find out we chose both right and wrong and it's a miracle any of us are here at all.

Hey, Soul Sister!



Hey, Soul Sister by Train

I saw this video one time on a music channel. I liked it instantly. The catchy music was refreshing, sort of like reggae. The video itself was cute. I liked how some of the words of the song literally led the guy and the girl to each other. When the video was done, I found myself singing some parts of the chorus although I was not familiar with the lyrics. I think I had a case of LSS or Last Song Syndrome. But gladly, it was a nice song, and not some crappy, nonsensical one that got stuck to the "front lobe of my left-side brains." :-D

Dates

Who knew that Chinese dates could be so addicting? Well, my hubby is Chinese and I really miss the dates we used to have before we got married and had children. But, that is not what I'm talking about here.

I was referring to this.



My mom gave me a pack of these sweet delicacies and I think I finished it all in just two days. I ate around 4 pieces in one sitting. I just couldn't stop! It was so weird. It's also great that they were seedless.

Trust my mom to have many kinds of Chinese sweet, salty and even sour fruit preserves to share with me.

The UNICEF Tap Project

I haven't tried this yet but I will very soon. I would like to help children in any way I can. I guess that's how women's hearts grow big when they become mothers.



This UNICEF Tap Project could help us not be addicted to our smart phones, but what's better is that it could help children have access to clean water, something more vital than our cellphones!

Here's the deal, for every 10 minutes you don't touch your phone, generous donors can fund one day of clean water for a child in need. Great, right? Go to uniceftapproject.org on your phones and it will detect your cellphones' movement. 

If you really cannot not touch your phones, you can always donate.

I want to do this because I want to limit my cellphone usage, join the hands free revolution and help children to a super important and basic need: WATER!

Are you ready?
