Organize (Kids Room)

As you all know, that we already moved to our new house and I was so obsessed with looking for a storage either boxes (plastics, carton, fabrics, etc.), drawer, cabinets to organize everything from Living, Kitchen, Rooms, Pantry etc etc. Now, I realized that having a big house with lots of cabinets with drawers built-in I get dizzy looking for the stuff I want to get. So, I plan and organize if I will make or buy storage and label all the things inside the box especially when it’s not transparent. Sometimes, I will draw what is inside or picture much convenient. Here are some ideas I’ve been copying (I’m a copycat) but as long as posted on the internet is was free to use. Anyway, I will just link their sites as well.

brand-new-pop-up-mesh-hamper-wash-collapsible
I get this from the 100Yen Shop (Dasio or Seria in Japan of course)

I put their Stuff toys so that I don’t pick them up every day. I just ask my kids after they play they must put their toys in the hamper or else I will donate or throw them away. (just kidding so that they can keep their toys everytime they finished playing)

Small Toys
Small toys that are free from fast food (usually) and gacha-gacha

Once again, 100Yen Shop I stored their small toys that usually free from the fast food chain and gacha-gacha… see below pictures what I am talking about.

Ikea Box
Ikea Kids Box more toys to store

My son has a lot of toys so we bought this as a color coding toy. The Blue is for his Lego, white for cars, hot wheels, anything with the wheels and the last green are for his dinosaurs collections. (oh name it any dinosaurs he knows it but if you ask him the Multiplication table gosh, everything forgot it. hehehe)

Metal Rack
Universal Rack

This one which we bought it in the Philippines before we decided to stay here in Japan. By that time it was free because of my husband work/job. Anyway, This rack is universal. You can use it in the kitchen (we use this when we don’t have cabinets in our old house (Osaka), pantry as well you can store a lot. Now, we are using it as Kids Bookshelf and also some toys (big and long) as it won’t fit in the container.

Corkboard
Corkboard

I usually use this to post their schedule and put some remarks as well as “Clean the Mess!” Yup, I always put that in my sons’ message/schedule board as we call it.

Book & File
Files Organizer

I love this item a lot, I got mine as well in my craft room. Anyway, everything is here. Files, Papers from the schools, Pencil Holder, Paper clips and others. I love this item.

 

This is just a simple thing that I bought for the kid’s room. Becuase their room has the built-in desk and their bed is in the loft so, Loft for sleeping and below for studying and playing as well. Their clothes, inside the walking closet. Everything was hung and fold inside the drawer/cabinet, I put labeled in each drawer so, that they won’t ask me anytime (where is ? even though I was inside the shower or toilet). We don’t want a lot of furniture as it might get crowded into the room of the kids. They like more space to play. Simple organized yet so convenient and no waste of time pick-up toys for the kids every day.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a great day!

Easter Sunday

This image I think most of my close friend and my family send this to me. Popular for the Easter Sunday.  So, tell me what is the meaning of the Easter Sunday. Let’s dig deeper into this words. As a Catholic/Christian, we think our Creator has risen. (The Lord is Risen / He has Risen // Jesus Christ is Risen)

Luke 23:32-46 New International Version (NIV)

32 Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed. 33 When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. 34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”a]”>[a] And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.

35 The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him. They said, “He saved others; let him save himself if he is God’s Messiah, the Chosen One.”

36 The soldiers also came up and mocked him. They offered him wine vinegar 37 and said, “If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself.”

38 There was a written notice above him, which read: this is the king of the jews.

39 One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”

40 But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? 41 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”

42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.b]”>[b]

43 Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

The Death of Jesus

44 It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, 45 for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. 46 Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”c]”>[c] When he had said this, he breathed his last.

Luke 24:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

Jesus Has Risen

24 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.

Luke 24:30-35 New International Version (NIV)

30 When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. 32 They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”

33 They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together 34 and saying, “It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon.” 35 Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread.

1 Corinthians 15:12-20 New International Version (NIV)

The Resurrection of the Dead

12 But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.14 And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. 15 More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised.16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either.17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost.19 If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.

20 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

Easter is that most confusing of dates – one that is never fixed and changes according to the lunar calendar. In the Philippines, we usually take a break or go on vacation. Traditionally, we won’t eat meat for the start of during Holy Week  (Holy Thursday to Black Saturday). Then, Sunday is the feast day.

Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus after his crucifixion, which is marked on Good Friday. Christians believe rose again three days later. The three days are known by the Church as the Easter Triduum.

The Easter season begins on Ash Wednesday – the first day of Lent, which lasts 40 days – if you leave out the six Sundays in between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday. It is a time when Christians fasting or give up a particular food or vice. The fasting period is to remember when Jesus went into the wilderness and fasted for 40 days despite being tempted.

Hopefully, this will help understand what is Easter. If you want to read more about this please click here.

Dieting

I admit, I always tend to say I’m on the diet. Then, after few days there is an occasion like gathering from friends and they cook of course we have to eat or else they will feel that we don’t want their cook food they serve. It just a thing for a Pinoy like us, we have to eat it, or else we feel bad. Dieting really big thing for me. Especially, nowadays I’m getting old my metabolism really not doing their jobs to break my food inside (kidding aside). Anyway, I tried this method, Egg Diet have you heard it!

8d30e5f6c19cb7cf2b586fa5fb9b2899

I get this of course on the Pinterest site (click here).  I started my weight 65.7kg (144.8lb) at 5′ 3″ I’m overweight to obese :-(.

IMG_5144 ideal-weight-height-chart

My first day of diet was really surprised me.

IMG_5154

Day 1: March 13 – 64.8kg

Day 2: March 14 – 63.9kg

IMG_5261
the last day Day 10

Short of it works for me, but I get tired of eating apple and egg for 10 days. I can’t stand it.

I better try to get more exercise so, that even though I eat a lot it will burn. And also less sugar & sodium, no chocolate, no rice (but I eat bread for carbs), no to junk food (I eat fresh salad from our backyard) hopefully, it will work. I started my weight today at 64.4kg. I’m just aiming 60kg only. I took me months to lost 4-5kg. so hard. 😦

“The most effective diet must be one you can fully commit to.”

Am I fully commit to this? oh well, I can’t reject some invitation but I eat less not so full and I drink a lot of warm water and teas. No soda and occasional alcohol as well. End of April I will update you if I’m committed to this weight loss. Wish me Luck!

 

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a great day!

Hey guys!

Have you experience all those popping up online shopping sites/apps even when your browsing on your Facebook site. Then, have you tried it to purchase those sites that are not that well known? Be true to yourself, because no human being who is not doing online shopping, just kidding. Well, let’s face it… it was convenient for us. Especially me, We have to walk to reach the bus, then you have to wait for the bus. It was a waste of time right? On your phone or computer, just one click away. Tada! Tomorrow, it will delivery or  2-4 days unless if you’re not in a hurry to use the item. So, convenient nowadays.

So, tell me… (to my visitors & followers) what sites/apps are you using when shopping online. See my list below:

  1. Amazon.jp
  2. Tokyu Hands
  3. Omni7 – consist of the following: Seven Net Shopping, Seibu no e, Ito Yokado, Akachanhonpo, LoFt (this is my favorite: kawaii stationary), & Denny’s (Restaurant)
  4. Rakuten
  5. Craft Heart Tokai – my craft store
  6. Wish, Cute & Home – they all cheap but, don’t expect they have good quality etc.

And, some clothes branded names that they have the online shop like below: (just make sure you know your size)

  1. Uniqlo
  2. GAP
  3. Right-On – clothes (kids to adult)
  4. H&M
  5. Forever21
  6. GU
  7. ABC Mart – all about shoes
  8. Aeon – department & supermarket store

Every single site above, I tried and tested but most of those sites are in Japanese. Sorry for the inconvenience but they have pictures so, cute to browse/look. Some sites available to ship outside Japan.  Let me know in your country if you also have some collections online shopping sites like me. Please comment below.

Disney Hotel

dsc_4937_zpsck3kokxy

Before ending our vacay, we decided to visit this Disney Hotel which failed to booked this year 😦 Anyway, we also get a chance to have a family picture inside and quick check as well.

26654538_10155751705286609_1109755530_o_zpsj9rncjm8

The Hallway really nice to have some pictures. Looks like your inside the castle as well.

And, I like the chandelier and little princess like the gown of Cinderella.

Every door they have Disney Princess Names.

And, the set of chairs and cabinets. They all lovely, even the carpet. Dying to have one in our house.

Below, quick video going to this hotel and inside the hotel.

Hilton Hotel (Tokyo Bay)

hilton-tokyo-bay-hotel-deal-1024x512

We didn’t know it was fully booked in Disney hotel so we decided to check in at Hilton Hotel (Tokyo Bay). Which is closer to the parks and we can also use the membership to other countries as well.

img_4054_zpswwtgwzxs
I just noticed that our ticket was 2017.

dsc_4238_zpsajdvy77d

What good about our room was huge. We didn’t expect that it was a huge room. We always thought it will be small so we don’t want to expect it in Tokyo area.

dsc_4250_zpsayybc0fi

The Good thing about this hotel. Kids friendly, because they have place kids to play while waiting, then the free use of Computer, Convenient stores (Lawson, Bake Shop, Cafe etc.) and small Disney Store inside.

Kids really excited to buy, but we decided to walk outside near the station.

And, we found this big Disney Store inside the mall. They all cute so, in love with their merchandise. (especially those bags)

And, my little princess wants to look something to wear inside the park.

Below, a quick tour of the Hotel and also outside the vicinity as well.
