Almost An Accident!



This afternoon a glimpse from my right leg hahaha...We were on walking along the Oslo fjord, then we decided to go down to feel the cool breeze from the sea. A good sunny day that brings my right foot almost into accident. I stamped on that rock because I wanted to touch the clean sea water. But then I did not notice that I was at the edge and about to slide, I dont know what will happen to me.

Thanks GOD I was able to balance and get out from there. That could be something serious!

A Glimpse Of My Teacher...


Taken last day of my class before summer. She was discussing and teaching us about clock, remember the reading of clock here is different from English. So, she told everyone to memorize and she gives example and even bring that plastic clock for illustration. That was so cool while me try to sneak a picture from her.

Well, good enough that I took this pic because this coming August she will not be my teacher anymore. I have two new professor so this is my remembrance from Mari.

Anyway here are some samples for time reading here:
English (1:30pm) - in Norsk ( Halv to) Imagine that one...lol..
English (7:20pm) - in Norsk (ti halv pa atte).
English (9:45am) - in Norsj (Kvart pa ti).
Until now, I am yet perfect in reading in Norsk...lol

Drop A Card!


Last month, was my first time to drop a letter on the postbox. I am a bit hesitant at first. Hubby just told me that if I can see the red box outside the store then that is the postbox. I cannot much understand the language so I just try the luck , lol! But then I took a picture of this box to make sure and let my huband check if I did right...

It is a yes! lol... I am right! This is really the postbox here in Norway... Just drop there and no need to go in Post office not like in Philippines you need to go in Post office just to drop letter.

The next day I received message from the one I sent the card... so positive hehe!

Laila (28) to be thrown out - gets massive support


As a filipina living here in Norway, I felt pitty with this co-pinay having problem with her passport status. For me this is really in human, knowing that she is married to a norwegian and she is accused as criminal for not following some rules here in Norway when it comes to working.

Laila's passport stamped with the words that she had a work permit, as well as a numeric code behind. But that code is so complicated and found out that Laila's permit applied only as an au-pair-work and thus had the job in the cafeteria is illegal.

Laila and her family gets a massive support from other support group here in Norway and even in Facebook. As the update for now, she will be thrown out to Philippines and need to wait for two years before she can come back here.

Laila is married to Ole Kristian Navrud and have a son together , a six months cute baby boy.

How To Get Soft Hands

I must have to admit that I have a rough hands...lol! Yes, I noticed this roughness since I started working in office. Well, maybe I dont have time to have proper care and I need to rush all the time. So, this time I want to have soft hands by the help of some method that I want to apply.

For now I am not working so I have time to make some difference. Here we go. Glad I found this today I will try this later on. It says we can make this through households products.

1.)Wash your hands with warm water and moisturizing soap. After rinsing, fill a small bowl with warm water. Soak your hands in the warm water for about 5 minutes. Add a few drops olive oil into the water for added moisturization.

2.)Put about 2 tablespoons of sugar and a few drops of warm water on your hands. For seriously dry hands, replace the water with olive oil.

3.) Rub hands together, as you would when applying lotion. Do this for a few minutes.

4.)Take a small soft washcloth and put some moisturizing soap on it. Rub each hand all over, starting with small circles on the front and back. Rinse well in the warm water.

5.)Pat hands with a clean, dry towel. Leave hands a little damp.

6.)Apply lotion to hands and then wrap a hot, damp washcloth around your creamed hands so that all the lotion can soak in. Look for brands with shea butter in them. This butter is readily absorbed by skin, and doesn't leave a greasy feel.

7.)Take some rosewater (available in specialty body and bath stores) and massage this quickly into your hands. This softens and smooths skin tone, and gives your hands a beautiful scent.

Things That We Need:
  • Moisturizing soap
  • Warm water
  • Sugar
  • Soft washcloth
  • Towels
  • Lotion
  • Rosewater(optional)
  • Hot, damp washcloth
  • Olive oil


Tips: *
-Rub hard when applying sugar so it will be more effective, but not so hard that it will hurt and sting.
-Don't just do this once and expect the results to stay forever, do it weekly.

Before, I tried that sugar and it is really good but I tried it in my whole body. I will try it again exclussively for my hands.

Why Knock On Wood?



People knock on wood in one of two contexts. In the first, someone makes a statement about something which they hope does not come true, and they knock on wood to avoid that event. In the other instance, someone makes a statement about a desired outcome, and they knock on wood either to pay homage to lucky spirits or to ward off bad ones, depending on personal belief. While knocking on wood is unlikely to have a scientific basis, it seems to be a relatively harmless superstition, and some people believe that it is better to be safe, rather than sorry, when it comes to luck.

Well, I leave it up to you folks if you do the same. I do not do any knock on wood...lol!
