The Teacher

I was a teacher by profession, and I taught the first grade for 12 years. I love my job and I care about my students. When I got married, I filed a resignation because I moved to the US for good. My life as a teacher was exciting and every year, we celebrate teacher appreciation week. The school does not usually celebrate this activity but, our division has the special programs for us.

I taught the public school and the hardest part was teaching the children on the first two months of the school year. On the first day of the class, there are children who come to school with no school bags and no pencils or papers. I provided them with what they need inside the classroom. The budget was taken from my own pocket.

To make my room conducive to learning, I also spent money for the paint, screen doors and other things. My effort will have a positive outcome because my students would come to school regularly. They love to stay in the classroom and eager to learn the lessons. As a teacher, it makes me happy when I see them graduate in elementary and continue their studies to high school and college.

At The Beau Rivage Breakfast Buffet

We dine in at the Beau Rivage for breakfast and on Thursdays, the price is back to regular for Seniors. But, the food is still great for a $10 price in the buffet. This is actually my second plate and I ate it all. Oh, I just love the cherry tomato in my salad.
Hubby and I had our week-long vacation in Mississippi and we stayed at the Beau Rivage Hotel and Casino.We miss the buffet in every casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. The choices are so many and so affordable. You will never get hungry with seafoods in this area. I love my porkchop and I miss it already.

Our Human Body

This is a very interesting information and I want to share this educational facts to all of you. It is pretty amazing to know that pound for pound, babies are stronger than an ox. Would you believe that? If you are curious read the information below:

Flatbread at Subway

It has been a long time since I ordered a Five Dollar Footlong Sandwich at Subways. Hubby and I were waiting for his prescription at the Wal-Mart Pharmacy so; we decided to wait in Subways. We saw a $3 combo which is a flatbread and coffee comes with it. OMG! You should try the flatbread at Subways. It is really delicious and very healthy too.
If the footlong is too huge for your appetite, or hard for the bite, you can order a flatbread.
Try the combo first and if you love it, you can order the regular size flatbread.

Horror Movies

I am a horror movie fan! Well, I am afraid of ghosts and I do not intend to scare myself to death. But, watching horror films and TV series are so intriguing for me especially the Paranormal Activity. I only watch it when I am with somebody in the house. Do you know the top 25 Grossing Horror Movies since 1970's? See the study below:

Buffet at the Beau Rivage

Dining out is just one of the activities that we enjoyed doing while we live in Mississippi. So, when we had our week long vacation last week, we had our breakfast at the Beau Rivage. It was a Wednesday so, the Beau had a buffet deal for seniors. We only paid $19.00 for the three of us at the Beau Rivage Hotel and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. When I was working in the casino a year ago, I was in the graveyard shift and in the morning, we always dine out for breakfast. I miss that! All casinos in the area have a buffet all day long. I do not prepare for our breakfast anymore so, when I arrive home, I can sleep for the day.
This is the main lobby of the Beau Rivage. The buffet area is at the right end part of the lobby, behind that tree. The food is delicious and there are so much to choose from. Breakfast is usually less than $10/person but, for Mondays, Beau has specials for military: 2 for 1 breakfast/lunch. Every Tuesdays, the kids eat for free; Wednesdays, seniors are charged half price. Other casinos have their own specials too. When we dine out before, we always go to the places with good deals.I can only have two plates and I am full. Well, for a price of $10, the breakfast buffet in the Beau is my favorite.This is the buffet area of the Beau Rivage. The selections of the food goes all the way to the left side. They have salads for the vegetarians too with wide selections of greens. Oh! I just love this place!

Seafood Galore

We went to the shrimpboats at the back of Hard Rock Biloxi and bought 20lbs of jumbo shrimps for $4/lb to give to friends back to Florida. The price of small shrimps in Orlando is $9/lb just like the picture below. What we have is really bigger than this.
This shrimp is small size. It is usually priced as $2/lb but, we wanted a jumbo so, that's what we got.
My husband ate the crab meat which I am not a fan of. I was actually looking for crawfish but, this is not it's season. So, no one sells crawfish at this time.
This is the blue crab which is a famous catch along the Gulf Coast. They are so beautiful and big too. If it is a crab season, you can catch it easy.
Well, the house smells like shrimps now. Let's chow everyone!

A Dear Friend in the Hospital

I have been to the hospital the other day to visit a friend who had a sprain ankle. He had been complaining about it for almost a week and yesterday, he tripped. He was admitted to the hospital and he will be there until they diagnosed what is wrong with him. He has a young male doctor and I must admit, he is really an attractive doctor. He was wearing a comfortable scrub and I wonder if he bought it from I was just curious because it has a logo on the left pocket too. Anyway, my friend had some medication for his pain so; he was able to rest well in the hospital.

While in the hospital, I was paying attention to their scrub uniforms. They are wearing different colors and they look neat. One doctor came out in one ward wearing a scrub with prints. I can tell that he was a Pediatrician. I am not sure if he was a doctor though. Are you working in the hospital? If you are a nurse or a doctor, there is an available discount medical scrubs at Blue Sky Scrubs. Aside from scrubs, this company also has scrub hats, lab coats, shirts, jackets, and accessories to match up with your uniforms. Come on, check it out and just click the links above.

Crunchy Fried Chicken

Being a blogger, whenever I am and no matter how simple a subject that caught my eye, my camera is ready for a snap. Sometimes, I already ate everything on my plate and forgot to take a picture for reasons that the food I ate was simply delicious. I have this plate from Golden Corral and their fried chicken is my favorite. In fact, I go there for their fried chicken.
Hmmm, I thought of going to Golden Corral today too. It's been ages that I went there.

Parkway Properties

If you are looking to rent office space on the South-eastern State as well as Philadelphia, Chicago Illinois, Arizona and Texas, check out today. I am not leasing anything as of the moment but, I have a friend who works for a company that just move in Florida and they rent their office space from Parkway Properties. Their office is actually located at the Central Business district of Orlando, Florida which is not far from where I live.

It is a lovely area, well maintained building and they got great amenities too, not to mention the bonus of a stunning view from the window of her workspace! I actually love the building office space so; I did inquire about a little bit about the leasing process from my friend as my in-laws are planning to move their office nearby Millenia Area. My friend suggested that I should contact them directly. She added that the process is not as complex as some other rental or leasing companies.

Anyway, Parkway Properties has a good track of record. In fact they are almost everywhere in the South-eastern State. I actually have been looking at their website and found out that all their properties are of high standards and on a good location too! So I would say it is also worth inquiring for if you are looking for an office spare to rent.

Hot Tamales

When we went to Harrah's Hotel in New Orleans, they have a buffet and we took the time to dine in for a late lunch before heading back to Mississippi. We enjoyed it because the food was delicious and so many to choose from.As you can see, they have hot tamales and it was my first time to see and tasted it. I though it was the same as our "Binaki" in the Philippines. When I took a big bite, I don't like it because it was spicy and the taste is not right. I am used to eating a sweet corn baked with milk and other ingredients. Hot tamales is not the kind of food that I love.

Just Delicious

But, when I am starving, I can manage a plate of my favorite sweet foodies.If I miss Filipino foods, I would go to a chinese restaurant and in the US, you can see this establishment everywhere. Oh I can't resist good tasty food! Let's chow everyone!

Croquetas de Pollo

I used to visit Bem-Bem where she works. She was my aunt granny and whenever there are parties of her employer, she was there to help prepare two of her famous recipes: Croquetas de Pollo and Pollo Fettuccini in white sauce. She died almost two decades ago but, we still remember her recipe so; every special occasion, my mother would prepare it for our noche buena and birthdays. When we dine in to a Spanish inspired restaurant in St. Petersburg, I was so amazed to see the croquetas in the menu as an appetizer. It brings back my childhood memories. While I watch her cooking, I was always there waiting to eat my share. Honestly, the croquetas of my granny is more tasty and juicy than this one. Their croquetas are dry and the ingredient seems lacking. Anyway, I asked my mom the ingredient of Croquetas de Pollo so I can make it homemade too.

FishLips Waterfront Bar and Grill

After writing four posts today, Hubby said we will go to Port Canaveral for a short ride. It was not really a short ride because more or less it is an hour road trip passing Indian River, Banana river, Titusville and Cocoa Beach. Anyway, Port Canaveral and those places I mentioned are just nearby. After having migraine for 4 days, it is really good to go out today and hang out in Cocoa Beach.First stop, we had lunch at Fishlips Waterfront Bar and Grill at Port Canaveral. This is my first visit on this restaurant and was lucky too, Sarah Peacock, a fast rising singer was there for a solo performance as part of her concert tour. I ordered steamed white rice and a jumbo 5 pcs wings with sweet iced tea. The iced tea was bland and tasted like water. I ordered another glass but, it seems they did not check the taste of the iced tea, I can't taste the tea, LOL. Okay, I ordered steamed white rice but, I was given an instant yellow rice. My jumbo wings were good though. I enjoyed my food because of the music of Sarah and because the ambiance is great. My feeling was somewhat like a where I am comfortable.My husband eat all his creamy soup because he was hungry but, he can't taste the broccoli in it. I tasted his scallop with polenta and it taste alright. The food in this place is good and not bad at all based from what we ordered. I expect that it taste better than the nearby restaurants but, it's not!I like their place though. The ambiance is great and all the decors are fantastic. The servers are nice and very courteous in fact, we gave a good tip. We plan to visit anytime next month with a friend and see if the food will be better in taste and if they will give me the rice I want, LOL.Would I recommend this place? Of course, I will! This restaurant is clean, beautiful, excellent ambiance with a nice bar, smoking area separating people who don't smoke and nice view over the waterfront.Here is Captain Morgan, nice statue huh! The decor in this place is truly amazing! I just blown away!Here is the bar, isn't it beautiful and grand? I rate our food with satisfactory but, still we ate it with no complains because hubby and I enjoyed the place and the ambiance. Visit this place and see it yourselves! I recommend it!
This is my Yummy Sunday entry and thanks for stopping by.

Sexy Halloween Costumes

Did I tell you that I attended a wedding which was held on a Halloween Night? I really thought it was weird but, when I was there I had a blast! The groom was dressed in a vampire white suit and the bride wore a white dress with a makeup so pale as if she was dead. Honestly, they do not look scary even though the ambiance of the house has mummies hanging in a corner and a coffin across it. The couple was in their 50's and they wanted a unique wedding so; I was there and everyone had a good time.

I was wearing black attire and I was a witch that night. My husband had a Jason costume with a mask and a plastic dagger. There were kids around, grandchildren of the couple who are wearing Disney costumes, hero costumes and animal costumes. I like the cute little girl who was wearing a bee costume. The older guests were wearing Sexy Halloween Costumes such as a secretary, a lady referee, a sexy vampire and a cheerleader. It was really fun because during the ceremony, the wedding ring was taken from the hands of a talking skeleton. The couple stands on the terrace and all the guests gathered on the poolside. The food was great and everyone had a costume to brag. I like Cleopatra that night because she was so gorgeous.

Water Damage Solution

We are all aware as to how damaging Irene did to some parts of the East Coast. It shattered the family's personal properties and some even suffer loss of family members. When the storm's gone, we then realized the scope of the disaster. That's a big burden and I know from personal experience because I lived by the riverbanks during my childhood. It was a very stressful experience!

It could be very expensive if you do not have an insurance coverage for flood cases. If you plan to buy a house, make sure that you are not buying a house on a flood zone area.
