Christening to Christmas!

Yes! She is indeed a cute little princess. My hubby said she's his favorite niece as of the moment. No wonder why. She's easy to babysit. Very placid and was just happy seeing the birds or walking with her mommy and grannies. How I wish I have a cute princess too like her.

Anyway, this picture was taken last August 24. It was her christening day. Everyone was waiting for this event not only because of her special day but because its time to get in touch with old friends and family. My in-laws are one of the few people who also enjoyed this day. They have to admit that Lucy brings the family relations intact. I mean hey, Jamie's brother made it after 2 or 3 years of not visiting his parents. I'm talking about Sean. And I finally met him the day before the Christening. I also enjoyed it because I have 4 days off to work. Duh!? I desperately need day off due to too much work the past few weeks. Just thinking about cleaning the rooms make me want to just lye in bed and sleep without waking up. hahaha! Well, since the Christening is finished, we have to move on on the next season to come. What am I talking about here? Christening >>> then Christmas! Whew... I have to save every single penny for the Christmas gifts. The Moroney family is getting bigger and bigger. Plus I'm exempted on last years Christmas because I arrived here on 23rd of December. All I did last time is to receive tons of gifts! hahaha... I think I should sneack back to Philippines nearer the time to save some money ( just kidding ).. Honestly, its a good feeling knowing that few months from now its Christmas time. I can even hear some Christmas songs in my TFC and the thought of it makes me very excited!

The Internet on your Television??

How true is this news? This is one of the Yahoo Headlines today. Intel and yahoo joint forces to plan on making a so-called "Widget Channel". This widget channel will be using computer programs that will give more easier ways to those internet user to check stocks or sport teams messaging friends, and accessing videos thru Internet. That's awesome! I'll be looking forward to these new plan. Honestly, i'm pretty sure that as years passed by, there will be more new inventions that will alter the traditional TV into more better and bigger technology for the consumers or users. My husband said, here in UK they are changing all the analog satellite into digital one. Meaning those people in remote areas who are using FM/AM signal or even watching television using Antenna will be eradicated soon. The new generation is doing transformations since my birth. As long as there are lots of inventors, scientist or what ever you call those genius people, new technologies/inventions will be endless. Which I think is healthy because they make things easier for us. Of course disadvantages is on the lists. All we have to do is to become more wise and chosy in buying things we need and we want!

Cucumber Recipe?

Hey guys! I tried making a Chinese Recipe today and i think you might like to try it. Just the other day, my Filipina neighbor just gave me a cup of stir-fry which she said a chinese recipe. It is made out of pork and cucumber. Hmm? Sound interesting isn't it? Actually its easy to cook and believe me it was really yummy. I didn'd know that you can substitute Cucumber with our very own "Upo". Is that right? Well it taste the same. So rather than making salad with cucumber, you can experiment it with other recipe. I assume it can also be a substitute to "Sayote". Well, i'd better experiment it on Sayote meals before posting it here. Anyway, if you want to try this meal click it in this LINK. Enjoy!

Best Soundcard for Notebook

Few weeks ago I was mesmerize with this product I'm longing to have for my ACER Laptop. When I was in the Philippines, my brother has this Desktop PC with Creative Soundcard he used for hi 7.1 Creative Speaker. The reason why I'm blogging about this is when you are into gadgets, you tend to buy lots of accesories that you can install into your gadgets. Not only few people are mad on buying these new technology in the market today. Well I might say I'm one of them. Anyway, going back to the topic. Since my brother have this 7.1 Creative speaker with Soundblaster, he was able to connect it to his desktop PC and line it in to videoke/karaoke. As one of the frustrated singer in the family, we are recording songs in the comfort of our home. Watching movies using surround sound or what do they call it? Dolby Surround sound? I'm not sure, but thanks for Creative Products!

Now that I'm here in UK, I miss recording songs. I can do record songs using my laptop but I'm not contented. So out of my earnings, I asked my husband to buy me a soundcard that would fit or can be installed to my laptop. Of course, I asked my brother about it. And he suggested me to buy this Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Extreme Audio Notebook. Out of excitement I just bought it straight from EBAY. I really want to have it and record music which I can send to my parents in the Philippines or post it in my friendster. The product arrives the next day after I bought it. But heres the problem! The soundcard don'd fit with my multimedia card slot. I was so upset! I been working on browsing internet for the possible solution but failed! Well if anyone out there looking for soundcard for their laptop better make sure on the compatibility. As for me, Im using ACER Aspire 5570 Series. And this product that I bought only works if you have 54mm expresscard slot. If you are planning to buy, and not sure on the size of your expresscard slot then I suggest you to but the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi 5.1 . Make sure you check all the system requirements and compatibility so you won't regret buying it. But since this branded soundcard is a bit expensive, you might want to try this other option that is best for those people who wants to save yet looking for a quality product. SWEEX 5.1/7.1 USB External Soundcard.

As for the item that I bought, Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Extreme Audio Notebook I've found a solution for this one but still waiting for the actual product. I bought an Expresscard to USB Dongle Adapter that I hope would work on my Creative Sound Blaster. Finger's crossed! I'll keep you posted on the result once I recieved the parcel!

Pinoy Dream Academy Season 2 7th Gala Night!

Finally I've watched the complete episode of the Gala and probation night held last Saturday on Pinoy Dream Academy. For me the scholars that stand out among the face off's are:


Actually, the competition this gala night was really a close fight. Like for example, Bunny vs. Cris. I think Bunny stand out than Cris. How she delivers the song was far better than Cris. On Miguel vs. Ynaki, I chose Miguel. Because I can see his progress among his past performance. He really did a good job. Van vs. Sen, my winner is Van. I like his rendition of the song plus the stage performance. Bugoy vs. Apple, I'm on Bugoy's side. Although Apple really sings really good but the quality of Bugoy's voice was really amazing compared to Apple. I think juror's noticed that Apple's voice is somewhat normal. I mean, typical as they say. There are lots of singers out there who have the same quality of voice like her. But in fairness to her, I like how she perform her song choice. And Laarni and Liezel, these two are really rival to be the grand champion. Laarni has the voice. She is really gifted and maybe future diva. She's very competitive when it comes to Liezel. Mentors mentioned especially Ryan Cayabyab that Liezel has a very clean and nice voice too. I agree with that. But should be Laarni this time. The only thing that maybe pulled her score down was the last part of her song. Anyway, these Jurors know what they are doing. And in fairness to the Mentors they also know who needs more improvement or not. We just have to accept the outcome of this latest Gala Night and to the scholars, somehow they will learn something out of this competition. The so-called Sportmanship! Goodluck to them!
