2011 Ford Future Cars

| 28 December 2010
Today, let's talk about cars. This personal blog of mine became so huge that I need to cover a lot of topic. Honestly, I can't think of any topic to write. I ran out of interesting topics to digest. Since I also love cars, I'll write about the 2011 Ford future cars. Let's take at 2011 Ford. Future cars are great to marvel at, since the said car products will take the road in the future. Here are the 2011 Ford future cars.

Don't mind me choosing red colors. I'm fascinated with red cars. There was one time that I was able to take a photo of red cars while on stop. Although I'm not an expert when in comes to this topic, I'll always ask a friend who knows more about this. Going back to this future cars, let's wait until any of these hits the road. These are just concept photos, by the way. Have a nice day!

Ultimate Money Guide

| 23 December 2010
I've been thinking on what to post here this time. Since I need to evaluate what is my weakest point this year, I decided to write about Ultimate Money Guide based on my favorite magazine, Marie Claire. Yes, I'm not good in money management. Although there is improvement this year, I still want to hit my target-complete my homemaking wish list. I want to remodel our house. I want a functional kitchen. I want to save more for future expenses. I want to save for our insurance. There are so many things to do.

I'll just pick up the Ultimate Money Guide I could grasp from the magazine. Join me in checking our evaluation on these items.

Develop a simple personal statement of assets and liabilities. I'm talking here of net worth. Net worth is the difference between our estimated amount of liabilities and our assets. It determines our financial health. In order to do our personal statement of assets and liabilities, we just need to write in a notebook our sources of income in one column and our expenses in another. The clue here is just to make it really simple.

Track our expenses. This is essential because its our way of gauging if we live within our means. If we discover that we spend more money on things we can live without, we must do something to change it.

Create budget. On my part, I create weekly budget, yet I'm not able to follow it. However, this is alright as long as I did it on balance. It's important to be realistic here. Our ability to balance and project self-discipline matter.

Debt management. Talking about credit cards isn't avoidable here. If you own a credit card, it's like you declare that you owe company money, right? But this is not bad, as long as you're good in debt management. There are three things to do when in comes to debt due to owning credit card. First, pay with cash if you can. Second, pay off the card that charges the highest rate of interest first. It's one way of reducing your debt. Third, be disciplined. Remember, credit cards are not bad to your finances if used properly. Buying assets through your card is good.

Savings and investment. It's important to exercise caution in using savings money for investment purposes. Also, the "save then spend" process is still helpful for proper money management. Right now, I have a separate savings for kitchen renovation at home.

Finally, we'll write our money mantra. You can write your own money mantra too. It's up to you. Here's mine.

I will seize every opportunity to save money or invest it when the time is right. I will eliminate severe debts. I will walk away from a store without unnecessary expenses. I will continue depositing in my "untouchable" savings account. I will not be selfish because of money and any money problems. I will think about these words: A big part of financial freedom is having your heart and mind free from worry about the what-ifs of life. Thanks for reading about Ultimate Money Guide.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from:

Camel Race Bible Trivia Questions Game For Christmas

| 22 December 2010

We had our annual Children Christmas Party in our community yesterday. My sister helped me organize the party since other neighbors were busy preparing food. Our theme is just simple- anything barbecue-related. We had hotdogs and marshmallows barbecue which are considered fave food of the children. They liked the food so much.

Before eating time, we had a short program. Most of the children sang songs. Three girls danced to the tune of California Girls by Katie Perry. My favorite presentation is a song rendered by Natasha, who sang "A Whole New World".

There was also a message given by a young mother. Her talk is about "The Spirit of Christmas". She mentioned that the real meaning of Christmas is true love and concern for other people, especially the needy. After the talk, gift giving follows.

There were children who really enjoyed the games. Their favorite is Camel Race Bible Trivia Questions Game since it gave them the opportunity to learn and recall bible characters. It's a printable bible quiz ideal for children gathering. It's really amazing because Python Printable Games company made the said product to make a Christmas party for children so memorable. The Camel Race Bible Trivia Questions Game is a giant, printable board game which tests kids' Bible knowledge as it entertains them. The printable "board" is nine squares (A4 paper sheets). I was the one who sets up the game and reads the trivia questions, or action cards, as they are drawn. Kids move ahead, stand still, or move back depending on their trivia knowledge. My cousin, Cindy, won the Camel Race Bible Trivia Questions Game that I've hosted.

My Review.  The Camel Race Bible Trivia Questions Game is really a nice party game for children. The children love the game, especially when they received amazing prizes. For me, it's the perfect game we had this year because not only the children were entertained, they also learned bible lessons.

It wasn't hard for me to do it because I love printable games found online. Python printable games products isn't new to me either since I've been reading and using their products, lately. Overall, the children party organized in our community is a success.

Because It Snowed

| 19 December 2010
It's my habit to check international news before heading to Facebook, Yahoo, Gmail and other sites. I also stop over at Daily Mail since there are many interesting news delivered by the site about UK and its people. Every visit includes news about snow, very destructive snow. In my first visits of the site, I thought it wasn't a problem and that it's normal. But this time around,  a Daily Mail contributor wrote this one: planes grounded, thousands of festive holidays ruined, roads ungritted and others, meaning "not their finest hour". I cannot say in happy tune that the country where I belong don't have this kind of problem. I know how difficult it is on their part.

Imagine the scene where millions of people where stranded because it snowed. Imagine how cold it is for them. Imagine the massive destruction of the festive period for millions of people. Not a good experience, really. And I heard that it's the worst this year.

Mostly those who were affected people were so angry, yes. But then there's no one who could start the snow from dumping. It's part of nature. The best thing to do is prevent any untoward damage to the people and their properties.

Their question surrounds on the ability of Britain to solve the problem, knowing that the holidays is here. The transport system is very chaotic, that's why. Because it snowed, Christmas-related activities of the people were severely affected. But don't get me wrong, people work harder to solve the problem. Because it snowed, people were asking if they could refund their airline tickets. I hope it will solved as early as possible.

They should take this as a lesson. Preparation is a key in everything. What was last year's condition? That could be a measure for this time.

Dog Blog Post

| 10 December 2010
I'm so excited to share this dog blog post over My Regency. Our dogs, Enzo and Ice, turned one this month. In dog years, that would mean they're seven years old. That explains their funny behavior and notable dog intelligence. They're not professionally trained but they always understand our requests. 

The reason that we had these two pets is for protection or safety. They understood that very well. Enzo used to chase after rats, which amazed me. Ice used to protect us from insects. We're always warned in almost anything because they're there ready for their jobs. Since they used to bark like lunatics, people don't mess in our area. That's good for thieves to spare us, I think.

I want to share these photos of our dogs in these dog blog post.

Five Unique Photos A Day Project

| 09 December 2010
I only have one wish for this Christmas: to live life to the fullest by keeping footprints of memories. I want to enjoy my thirtieth year on earth more than the past years. I know it can only be done by having a happy, healthy, industrious and righteous way of living plus a sense of being organized.  

I devised an exciting plan to accomplish this wish. I need to complete a project called Five Unique Photos A Day within the entire year of 2011. The first photo should be taken while I'm on a happy mood, the second is about anything healthy, the third is about my day in the office or any work-related, the fourth one is a photo taken at a church activity and the last one is a random photo. The said random photo may include a unique car, a snapshot of our dogs, a photo of my attendance in a charitable work and many others. It's interesting, right? That would make me so busy everyday plus a chance to explore my new-found love of photography. Yes, I'm just new in the field. I'm not a professional photographer. But as you know, it's impossible to write a really nice blog post without a nice photo.

So, you ask: What is the rationale of the Five Unique Photos A Day project? It isn't a joke snapping at least 54, 750 photos a year. Plus, I'll have an additional task of having the photos printed and placed in nice albums. It's a good thing we've just bought a new printer for my photos to be printed. Well, I have reasons why I want to accomplish my wish for this Christmas in the most exciting way:

First, it's for genealogy and record-keeping purposes. The next generation after mine need lots of photos, I'm sure. My collection will help them a lot, especially for genealogy purposes.They'll have a glimpse of their past though my wide collection of photos;

Second,  it's for blogging photo collection. Because I have so many blog, I developed this habit of snapping and collecting random photos for a good post; and

Finally, I'll be able to accomplish my wish of living life to the fullest by taking photos of very essential daily tasks like living a happy life, choosing a healthy lifestyle, working hard, being a good citizen and keeping records and photos of amazing things life could offer. I'm also able to influence my loved ones and friends to live a happy and balanced life.

Yet, I have a problem. I need a handy, useful and technologically-advanced gadget to help me complete the task. As of now, I don't have one. Why not wish for a Nokia C7? Do I want a Nokia C7 for Christmas? Yes, I really need that kind of  Nokia phone for my Five Unique Photos A Day project this coming 2011. A Nokia C7 phone is perfect for my daily snapping of photo task. In using the said phone, videos and images look sharp on the vivid 3.5" high-resolution display. Aside from that, it can capture high-quality photos and HD video using the 8 megapixel camera. How cool is that? The said Nokia phone is a perfect companion to make the coming year so memorable and fruitful. It's so amazing.

I wish I'll have a Nokia C7 this Christmas. I hope I can finish my project for this coming year. Also, I'm deserving for a Nokia C7 this Christmas because I'm an industrious blogger. I blog to influence other bloggers and friends to always look at the brighter side of life and keep fighting for the universal good. The legacy I'll leave for the next generation is noble. Hence, I know all the good things I want in life will be mine.

 Thanks to Nokia and Nuffnang for this wonderful opportunity.

Eveready Moments Rewind

I'm fond of watching action films, especially those that has been patterned on real life stories and historical events. My favorite action films include Band of Brothers, Pearl Harbor, Platoon and The Pacific. I know, you noticed that all these films include US Rangers stories and their line of duty. There's a feeling of happiness and contentment that I was able to watch these movies thrice.

So, what's the connection with this introduction on Eveready Moments Rewind? Once upon a time, I had two Uncles who were serving the country as members of the Army. We had nice memories with these two amazing individuals because they've been close to our family. The other one (named as Mr. M) is not married, so it's not surprising that he spent a lot of time with his nephews and nieces, including me. It's still fresh in my mind when we cheer out loud every time he visits our humble dwelling. In most cases, our treats include nice meals, candies, bread and school supplies. He's the happiest when all of us gladly accepted his presents. For so many years, he'd been with us sharing positive thoughts and strength every time we need it.

The last time I saw him was when he's trying to hop in a bus but unexpectedly fell down. Thankfully, the driver waited for him to finally join the ride to work. Two days later, we had a gathering in the nearby village. This time, I'm with childhood friends and cousins. Since we used to listen to the radio, we brought with us a portable radio set and Eveready batteries. We don't want to miss listening to our favorite music and drama programs. As children, we usually prefer radio broadcasts than television because of the interesting drama programs. Also, we had tons of Eveready batteries prepared at home in case we need it. In between nice radio programs; local, national and international news are usually aired. That fateful Friday afternoon, we heard over the radio a sad news that our beloved uncle, Mr. M was killed.

The things I remember about another Uncle, Uncle P, include beach parties, farming and his way of carrying his son (my cousin) over his shoulders. Like Mr. M, he's also part of the Army. We're aware that his last assignment was in Basilan. Yes, he got killed there while participating in a very dangerous operation. How we heard the news? Of course, we're always using our portable radio and sets of Eveready batteries. Before their station commander sent a message to my Grandma, we already knew the bad news. And his last words for me before he went to war? "Study well. Prepare for your future."

See? We had good and bad Eveready Moments. For so many years, I've learned a lot because of our radio. Also, I got hints of how to create literary pieces because of my habit in listening to drama programs. On the day Princess Diana died, I heard the sad news over the radio. Until this day, we still have our radio and sets of Eveready batteries in my huge treasure box in the province. Although it's been so long that I got the chance to have it checked, I still remember those memorable things.

So every time I watch action films, you'll expect me think about my colorful childhood days, our radio plus Eveready batteries, brave Uncles and their Army adventures and opportunity to learn many things.

Finally, we can always prepare during typhoons and earthquakes because of timely news given by radio announcers. It's easy for us to get news about loved ones, good or bad too. I've got to prepare school examinations during brownouts because of our radio and its dependable batteries. Preparing for my future isn't easy but the task became lighter because of using a family companion (radio) and dependable batteries called Eveready.

Gifts and Talents

| 05 December 2010
I would like to share to you the spiritual thought I shared during the Art Festival in our ward. I was given the topic about gifts and talents. Upon knowing the topic, I prayed and asked guidance for my assignment. My only concern is to deliver the message well.

There are many things that I learned in this topic. The word gifts and talents has been considered as part of cultural, visual and performing arts. However, this has been considered as a very limiting definition. There are myriad ways to express gifts and talents given by God.

The examples of gifts and talents include cooking, dancing, singing, writing, sports abilities, painting and others. These are given by God for mankind to explore and develop. In that sense, we're approved of by Him to develop the gifts and talents we received. Yes, each one of us receive different kinds of talents. It's up to us to use it for our own advantage in a righteous manner.

Simply put, when we received gifts and talents from God we have the obligation to use it. However, we should develop it on righteous purposes. It shouldn't be used to damage or defraud another person.

According to Elder Henry D. Taylor, "You probably have gifts and talents that you have not yet discovered or that are dormant. These must be awakened."

The counsel is very clear. I'll pray that I'll be able to follow this counsel. Have a nice day, everyone!

How To Create A Unique Home Decor

| 03 December 2010
I'm so happy with the increasing traffic here in My Regency. When I started this blog two years ago, it was just a play. My husband wanted me to start a blog, but I'm not really serious about it. The love of blogging really started when I met some friends online and when I discovered a lot of tricks in making a blog grow. For today, my post is about how to create a unique home decor. I'm not a professional interior designer, yet I'm really fascinated with unique home designs. My primary consideration is creating a unique home design using affordable materials.

Our home isn't complete, I know. There are many things to accomplish like painting, flooring, finalizing the kitchen, putting up a fence so that dogs won't run away just to play and finalizing the bedroom upstairs. While we're preparing all these, I want to know how to create a unique home decor.

I finally made a unique home decor when I was invited to a church activity which is an art festival. I thought it was unique since the materials I used are all recycled. On my way to the wet market, I searched for tree wigs. I decided to make a Tree of Fashion. I found tree wigs and I brought it with me while looking for fresh pork and fish in the market.:)

Upon reaching home, I took my used nail cream and used it to paint the branches of the tree wigs. I used color pink, lavender, green, red and yellow alternately. After that, I took my handmade fashion accessories and tried it on the tree of fashion. The dogs stood beside me while doing this project. I finished the project two hours before the event. Love it!

"In making a unique home decor, try to find inspiration online. There are lots of bloggers who share their passion on home design. It's also wise to recycle what you have. Look around you, you'll see a lot of materials that you can transform into a beautiful piece." - My Regency

Of course, I won under the "most economical category". Also, our group won the best creation. I was also the one who gave the spiritual talk.  I'm so blessed being a member of our church because my passion on arts, public speaking and fashion aren't neglected.

Ann Ward Is America's Next Top Model 2010

We had a tag in this blog about supermodels, right? This is noticeable when you're a regular reader. Why am I so excited? Because I'm so impressed with Ann Ward. I'm so inspired to throw a post about this topic Ann Ward Is America's Next Top Model 2010.

There's a controversy surrounding such a stunning supermodel. On her her first appearance of the America's Next Top Model 2010 contest, a judge revealed he could fit both hands round her tiny waist. She said she was often bullied while in school because she's so different. Isn't it interesting? She's so tall, 6'2" in very pretty. Her hair fits the runway and being that photogenic, she won the contest. Hence,  Ann Ward Is America's Next Top Model 2010.

What about the loser? Well, when you search stories about this topic, you'll know that Chelsey Hersly from Idaho felt that she was cheated when Ann Ward won. She thinks her photographs and performance prove better than the winner. That's  why you'll see awkward hug with Ann Ward during the announcement of winners.

The prizes. Ann Ward had a modeling contract to sign, a spread in Italian Vogue, and a contract worth $100,00 and a chance to endorse Cover Girl cosmetics. Here's Ann Ward Is America's Next Top Model 2010 photos.

When I was not that busy, I was there in our reunion guys, remember? I was the one collecting funds and spearheading food preparation. I miss those days, but I have to prepare for my future. When I'm done here, I'll be back and enjoy the rest of my days.

Finally, you'll be able to get updated on my activities so that you'll be sure of what I'm doing and not hold on speculations.

Kate Middleton Highlights To The Making of a Princess

| 23 November 2010
We've been talking about Kate Middleton lately. In fact, I've started the talk by writing Let's Talk About Kate Middleton and Kate Middleton Pink Gown Photos. This time around, let's focus on Kate Middleton Highlights To The Making of a Princess. All these write-ups are based on the Mail Online news about Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Kate Middleton has been distinguished as the prettiest girl at Sally’s, the nickname for St Salvator’s Hall. That time, Prince William already noticed her.

They've plenty in common since Kate was a country girl who loved playing sports and was a keen swimmer, just like William.

It's good to know that if William was ever forced to miss a lecture, Kate would take notes for him. That's a typical happy campus relationship scenario.

This is very interesting. As Kate shimmied down the catwalk wearing black underwear and a daring, see-through dress, William whispered to a friend and said: ‘Wow, Kate’s hot!"

This was the time when the media knew of the relationship. Hence, the photo of William gazing lovingly at Kate that was published in The Sun on April 1, 2004, was no April Fools’ joke. That confirmed the rumors that William and Kate were definitely more than just friends.

One of the best things about Kate is her ability to properly handle things that are new to her. With that, she was polite to the photographers who now pursued her, and she quickly adopted the Royal rule of never speaking out.

This is another interesting piece of Kate Middleton Highlights To The Making of a Princess. According to Mail Online, Charles’s wedding, a civil ceremony in Windsor, William was a witness together with Camilla’s son Tom, and had the added responsibility of looking after the wedding rings. But since she and William were not yet engaged, Kate was not invited to the intimate family wedding itself.

The Mail Online website also shared that files of suitable brides for William, compiled as protocol by Palace aides has been archived. As a commoner, Kate Middleton was never included.

Here's Prince Harry's girl Chelsea and Kate story, according to Mail Online. They got off to an inauspicious start when Kate offered to take her ­shopping in King’s Road, Chelsea. When Chelsy, whose sense of style is very different from Kate’s, snubbed the invitation, Kate was said to be offended.

Based on the news and other sources, the couple separated twice.

Lastly, in November 2006, prior toWilliam's graduation in from Sandhurst, Kate was invited to Sandringham for the Royal Family’s traditional pre-Christmas lunch, the first time a girlfriend had received such an invitation.

Thirty Years of My Past

I'm so early in coming here in the office, so I think this is a perfect time to post about thirty years of my past. This is a recollection of the things I've done after graduating high school because I choose to keep the rest for myself. I'm really happy because things are still getting better despite the challenges that I encountered for the past decades.

The things I've planned and done with my comments.

First, there's a need to take up a college course. I chose Bachelor of Arts Major in Political Science for one reason that I want to be lawyer. I enjoyed my Pol Sci days and started being a member of a debating club. Of course, I earned the degree by hard work and diligence.

Take up law. Being in law school is tough. Imagine reading a lot of law school books for daily oral recitations in class. Honestly, I was a very lousy law student. I didn't study hard and I only passed because of my quick reviews before exams. This thing happened in my second year until I graduated with "falling colors". How sad when I was successful in my elementary and high school days, referring to academic and extra-curricular matters. Did you know that I was an athlete even up to law school? Yeah, that was track and field. My last run was in a law school activity.

Attend a practice court hearing. I'm not really an outstanding student in law school but I've tried a lot of fun things to do. I was able to participate in a real court hearing under the supervision of a law school professor. It was nice and fun. Honestly, I was really nervous at that time. We need to help a person recover damages from the defendant. As a side note, I won as speaker in debating contests and made known for a while because of my "impressive they say" performance in a moot court hearing. I can't forget being a popular "witness" at that time. Because of that, I gained friends and enemies, too.

Take the BAR exam and pass.  Some stroke of luck, but I failed. I can attribute this failure to my lousy performance in school, too much time and attention given to extra-curricular activities like debating, mooting, sports, fraternity and others. By the way, I'm a member of an exclusive national law fraternity and sorority.  I've regretted not being a lawyer after my graduation but I never regretted enjoying life that time. I've learned a lot of things because of the bittersweet detour.

To really fall in love. I have a tale to tell because of this. But really, I did this for literature and fun. It's true that I've been in love but when it's over, I realized I should go back to reality. I've known a lot of people because of this and visited a very beautiful and calm place in it's finale.

Visit places. I've been to different places within the Philippine island. The cities include General Santos, Davao, Dipolog, Cagayan de Oro City, Iligan, Marawi, Guimaras, Aklan (Boracay), Iloilo, Manila, Bulacan, Dapitan, Ozamis, and others.

To marry when twenty-eight years old. My plan of marrying at the age of twenty-eight years old happened. I was married in the Philippines Temple (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), not other temple that you know, by the way, to a man three years older than me. I hope to have twin (little ones) with my husband.

Rent-to-own. I started paying when I was twenty-eight years old. I'll share some pics by the time we we're able to remodel the house.

Insurance. Yes, I'm insured. That's for my future and in case I'll die first.

There are other plans for accomplishment. Until the next recollection....:) Thanks for reading thirty years of my past blog post.

Jessying Birthday Giveaway

I'm planning to write more blog posts this week. But since schedule is so hectic, I decided to just write about Jessying: My Birthday Giveway. It's her way of showing gratitude of increasing blog fans and supporters. I'm so delighted she's giving away tons of "girly things" because those are my favorites.

You may wonder why I love joining giveaways. Seriously, I love giving friends and loved ones things that they like. In order to store many items for them, I'd like to win some blog giveaways. The more I give, the more I receive blessings.

Going back to Jessying's blog giveaway, you just have to blog about it, post it on Facebook and Twitter and follow her blog through Google Friend Connect. She also asked about what her readers' favorite blog post.

By the way, I'd like to thank Tolits, Lhan, and Zeb for always visiting my blog. Have a nice day, friends!

Christmas Printable Paper Dolls Set

| 18 November 2010

My Regency is a kid-friendly blog, so this time around let's have review on Christmas printable paper dolls that Python Printable Games sent me recently. I've read a lot of Mommy blogs sharing about their kids enjoying art and crafts projects. I'm so delighted with those kids whose parents know how to train them various things like reading, drawing, painting and speaking well. 

For today, Moms can give their children a chance to play paper doll cutouts from Python Printable Games. The said company sent me 14 pages of paper dolls to print and cut. After cutting each paper doll, I tried to color some of the designs.  All I can say that it's a fun thing to do, especially for kids!

The said art product is compose of 14 -page PDF file for kids to play. Basically, seven pages are black and white, so they can color in their dolls before they dress them. The other seven pages are pre-colored, so if there's less time, or no coloring materials available, they can simply cut out and play with the colored version. Isn't it interesting? The said Christmas printable paper dolls are awesome gifts for kids too.

Here's the finished products of my printable paper dolls cutouts.

 Here's the black and white printed paper dolls.

 Ready for cutout.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
