Mackenzie Foy is Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 Baby

| 27 January 2011
Mackenzie Foy will play as Robert Patinson and Kristen Stewart's half-vampire, half-human child in Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn II. I can't remember writing about Twilight in this blog and didn't have time to watch The Twilight Saga: New Moon. But when I found out that Mackenzie Foy is the chosen child actress to play Renesmee, I'm so excited! Now I'm reminded that Renesmee is the super-fast growing child of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 will be released in November of this year. I'll surely watch the sequel. It's Part 2 will follow in November 2012. I hope to know more about Mackenzie Foy. Are you a Twilight fan? Come on, share your thoughts.

Seven Things That You Still Don't Know About Me

| 21 January 2011
I received an award, Stylish Blogger Award, from Notbuk ni Lhan. With the award, you will know the seven things that you're still not aware about me. I would like to thank Lhan of Notbuk ni Lhan for giving me the award.

Seven Things That You Still Don't Know About Me

1. I'm afraid of snakes. Really. If I can see the smallest snake in the street or anywhere, I'll run, though the said snake is apparently dead. Even in my dreams, I'm afraid of snakes. I remember I cried in a dream because I saw a lot of snakes. It turns out a friend of mine betrayed me.

 I saw a small snake in this area, a few blocks away from our home.

2. I'm a cry-baby. It's easy for me to cry, especially if something that I've known is sad, touching and heart-warming. I've watched sad movies that made me cry. I've seen an old woman which made me cry. I cried when our dog, Enzo, almost died last year. Maybe I'm compassionate? I hope so.

  That's Ice (brown) and Enzo (white) on their leash for a walk.

3. I lost interest in taking the BAR examinations. Really. But I'm trying to console myself. Maybe because I failed that the trials are so overwhelming. I still want to be a lawyer, yes.  But, I'm busy with other interests. I lost track of my dreams. Thankfully, I still have chances. One day, I'll get back on track with God's help.

4. I love gardening. When I was young, I used to participate in planting activities, season by season. Yes, I'm a farmer by heart. In our small front yard at home, I planted a mango tree which is Indian mango. On the other side, I planted Rambutan fruit. We have also lemon grass, malunggay, flowers and herbal plants. Imagine the means by which I should arrange our small front yard.

5. I love seafood. That explains why I have seafood recipes in my food blog, Cuisine Delight. I grew up in an area wherein the other side of a mountain and the sea are neighbors, the national highway is in between. I miss the abundance of farm products and seafood as ingredients for meals since I'm already here in Manila.

6. I'm workaholic. I don't know, but I love the thrill of working hard when a project is in line with my interests and very rewarding. Blogging? I have so many blogs, in different niches, on free platforms and not. I have so many books in my home office table. As of this writing, I'm about to finish James Mawdsley's The Heart Must Break. I bought that book for less than a dollar at Booksale. He's a British-Australian human rights activist fighting for Democracy in Burma. Come on, Google him. :)

7. I  love writing. It's obvious because I'm practicing my writing skills most of the time. I like writing short stories, short novels, poems and blog reviews. The first poem that I wrote was lost because of my constant transfer of boarding houses when I was still a student. I also learned real court cases because I know a skill about legal writing. I earned my first "huge earning" because of writing that I was able to buy gadgets, home appliances and others even before I got married. Those are blessings from Him, I must claim.

Here's the award:

I'd like to pass the award to:

6. Jess

I can't think of any addition. :)

___ ___ ____ ___ ___ ____ ___ ___ ____ ____ ___ ____ ___ ___ ____ ____ __ ___
1. Thank the blogger who gave you the award by linking his or her blog in your answer-post.
2. Write your own, Seven Things That You Still Don't Know About Me post.
3. Pass on the award to 15 bloggers you've known lately.
4. Inform them that you have an award for them.

Global Tourism

| 17 January 2011
I'm inspired to write about this topic here since I remember helping or just looking at tourists in the country. They're roaming around here for various reasons such as business, island hopping, getting married, educational purpose, work-related and many more. However, it's surprising to know that global tourism proved to be growing in some parts of the world including Asia.

According to CNN International, "Asia was the first region to recover and the strongest growing region in 2010, with a 13 percent increase. International tourist arrivals into Asia reached a new record at 204 million last year, up from 181 million in 2009, the UNWTO said."

For sure this provides a strong effect on revenue and jobs for developing countries. No wonder a lot of foreigners take their business to "booming Asia" as relayed earlier by CNN International. More and more tourists are coming over and join the hype of global tourism, and then business ventures. Of course, this is a good news for Asian countries and other regions in the world with increase in global tourism percentage.

I Just Love Minute Maid Pulpy

| 10 January 2011

I just drank a bottle of Minute Maid Pulpy. They say it’s got ‘no preservatives added’. Aw, c’mon…It’s bottled juice. Is that even possible? So I thought maybe... it was just my pessimistic mind. It won't hurt if I'll think it over and know the truth.

I didn’t believe it the first time I heard it’s got no preservatives added.  So I read the ingredients (even the fine print) and everything checked out! It really has NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED!  That means it doesn’t have ingredients that may turn out to be allergens, or worse...carcinogens!  Whew! Now that’s healthy goodness that tastes so good, I... just love it! That also means it's high in antioxidants which prevents various forms of cancer and prostate cancer.

So okay, it’s got no preservatives added. That’s really good, right?  Not just because it doesn’t have those icky, harmful ingredients, but it also means... it has high percentage of Vitamin C which helps boost immune system. I'm sure it has potassium which is an essential nutrient for the body to reduce risk of heart disease. 

So far anyone who still has a hard time believing that Minute Maid has got no preservatives added - meaning it's THAT natural, it's almost like it's plucked straight from the tree, it's just as Mother Nature wanted your orange juice to be, it's got nothing but the good stuff yes, none of those potentially toxic stuff that can harm your brain, kidneys, heart; cause tumors aargh- the list of preservatives' bad effects just go on!!! Anyway, just to prove a point on just how good Minute Maid Pulpy is 'cause it's got NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED, I'm gonna continue drinking Minute Maid Pulpy everyday. I really know that it's anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and high in antioxidants. 

Feels good to know about the real pulpy deal, right? C’mon show me a smile on the comment box, and you might win yourself a Really Pulpy Deal! (That’s a chance to win a Minute Maid gift pack simply by commenting. Sweet! C'mon you just might be picked as the lucky 'commentor'!)

I would like to thank The Coca-Cola Export Corp and Nuffnang for giving me this opportunity to express my love of Minute Maid Pulpy in my blog.

Printed T Shirts Review

| 07 January 2011
T-shirts are the best outfit in doing many of our activities at home, in school and at work. When I play badminton or work on our garden, I prefer using loose t-shirt for purposes of comfort. When it comes to shopping, I also choose t-shirts because I know I'll be fitting a lot of clothes and wearing t-shirt makes it easy for me to do it. Comfort and style is also applicable in wearing simple t-shirts. You just have to pair it with denims or any suitable clothing for a t-shirt to look classy and stylish. This time, we will talk about custom T shirts in this blog post.

When I was in college, customized t-shirt printing is a hit. If we happen to be members of a school organization, wearing a customized t-shirt representing the organization is required. Custom T shirts are common in school, especially in major activities in the academe. Thankfully, custom T shirts are affordable that time that we were able to collect many pieces. Until now, I still have my custom t-shirt collections in the closet.

I was lucky to review a custom t-shirt from T Shirt Printing. I gave it to my husband, though. It looks good on him, that's why. He liked it very much. Here's some photos I've taken.

__ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __

I like the color of the t shirt. In fairness, the print is isn't messy and the color combination isn't annoying to look at. The size of the shirt is small, and it fits him well. It's in heavy cotton so wearing the shirt is very comfortable. The mascot monkey print looks vivid in a real t-shirt compared to what is shown online.


Nothing. Custom t-shirts are usually made to adapt the style you want. Since the design is nice and the materials used in the shirt are in good quality, there's no reason to dislike the product.

T Shirt Printing as print company sells custom t-shirts in different colors and sizes. I'm proud to say that when they sent me the product, I received it within a week. Cool, right? You may also check their website for additional  information. Also, I just received a promotional product from them for purposes of an honest review and if you want to order from them, you'll just have to state how your t-shirts be customized. 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using and the Tomoson weekly featured sponsor Favorite Wigs - Shop Name Brand Wigs at Low Prices!

Gardening Photos

I've been planning to share my gardening photos in this blog. However, I was so busy in the past few days that I don't have much time sorting gardening photos. Honestly, my blog posts lately was done within 10 to 15 minutes per post because of time constraints. Our garden is not huge since we used the front space of our home to plant vegetables, flowers and mango. I'll post later about our little mango plant. Here are the gardening photos that I've been talking about.

The taste of Ampalaya is bitter, but I love it.

Have you seen that mango seedling in the corner? We're going to transfer that soon.

Wait! We planted flowers, too.

Thanks for visiting our blog with gardening photos. :)

Kate Middleton Royal Wedding Glimpse

| 06 January 2011
Here's my Kate Middleton royal wedding glimpse post today. Since we love to talk about Kate Middleton, we'll record here some of the highlights of the Royal Wedding. Earlier, we've read over online news that there will be no ponies for a princess since royal-bride-to-be Kate Middleton will take car rather than fairytale horse-drawn carraige to wedding venue. In that sense, she will arrive at Westminster Abbey as a commoner but will emerge as a real princess at a planned pompous ceremony of a British royal wedding. Low-key, isn't it? It's also an indication that for the first time, there will be no horse-drawn carriage arrival of a bride to a royal wedding.

According to Daily Mail, in contrast with their low-key arrival at the Abbey, Prince William and his bride will emerge to an impressive spectacle including thousands of marching soldiers, military bands and mounted regiments. The April 29th big event plans has also been tweeted by Prince Charles, according to Daily Mail. Here's the Daily Mail's record on the tweets:

The long string of Tweets, all written in less than 140 characters, were posted over several minutes.

They were:

    * Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton have made more decisions on their upcoming wedding. More tweet to follow.
    * Miss Middleton will travel to Westminster Abbey by car.
    * The route will include The Mall, Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall and Parliament Square.
    * The wedding service will begin at 11am.
    * The Archbishop of Canterbury will marry Prince William and Miss Middleton, and the Bishop of London will give the address.
    * The Dean of Westminster will conduct the service.
    * The couple, now married, will return along a Processional Route in a carriage procession to Buckingham Palace.
    * On arrival at the Palace, friends and family will gather for a private reception, hosted by The Queen.

It could be remembered that Kate wanted to be called as Catherine instead of "Kate". So, it's expected that she will be addressed as Princess Catherine once married to Prince William. Lastly, Prince William and Kate Middleton's guests will include some foreign dignitaries and VIPs, as well as some ordinary citizens who the prince has come to know through his 20 good causes.

Thanks for reading my Kate Middleton Royal Wedding Glimpse post. :)

Nursing Scrubs At Blue Sky Website

| 05 January 2011
It's been a while since I talked about beauty and fashion in the workplace. Since I was tasked to find clothing material for my sister's friend, I'm on research about nursing scrubs. Yes, my sister's friend is a nurse. She used to work downtown area, but this time she was hired as a private nurse of a businesswoman in our area.

My sister's friend is so fashionable, I must say. When she had her first job in an hospital, her scrub clothing is very chic and trendy. Many co-workers always ask her where to find the best nursing clothes.

I told my sister that there are many scrubs clothing sold online. You just have to find the best website that sells nurse clothing items. Lately, I discovered a website that sells fashionable and functional nursing scrubs or uniform. You'll get a free shipping in Blue Sky Scrubs if your order is $115 or more. Their website is also easy to use and very informative. It's easy to navigate and you've got to read their blog too. Just choose the best nurse uniform that you like.

Honeysuckle as 2011 Color of the Year

| 02 January 2011
As I was surfing the web lately, I found out that Pantone announced the color of the year. The vibrant hue of 2011 is Honeysuckle. If you'll surf the web about this one, you'll stumble a lot of flowers called Honeysuckle. It has different colors. This year, the blushing pink honeysuckle is the most-celebrated color.

According to their website, Pantone LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of X-Rite, Incorporated, and is the world-renowned authority on color. It is a provider of color systems which has been used all over the world. I was really thinking of knowing the shade that they're going to announce this New Year.

Imagine Honeysuckle. It's a festive reddish pink, they say. Nice, right? You knew that pink is my favorite color.

Here are my thoughts on Honeysuckle. Honeysuckle as 2011 Color of the Year makes me re-think and re-do.

Pantone directed that Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. Since it's a dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.

This is what i really need this New Year -vigor. I lost track of my past plans and aspirations. I'm beginning to be a happy-go-lucky lost princess. Albeit the occasional re-building, I tend to sway a little. Challenges are indeed exhaustive.

How about you?

Pantone reminds, “In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues.

It's timing. More often than not, I forget the magic of colors. Being boring is coming my way. I must change and get inspired by the brilliance of honeysuckle.

Finally, Honeysuckle is guaranteed to produce a healthy glow when worn by both men and women. With that, Pantone encourages individuals to paint a wall in Honeysuckle for a dynamic burst of energy in the family room, kitchen or hallway.

I might suggest that our kitchen's paint should be honeysuckle shade. I'm not going to take for granted it's promise of a dynamic burst of energy.

Thanks for reading, Honeysuckle as 2011 Color of the Year post. I'm really thrilled with your last comments. Feel free to share your thoughts.

Our Nominees For The Annual Blog Awards 2010

| 01 January 2011
Let's start the New Year with fun! Since my blogger friend Lhan of Life Meets Happiness blog nominated "My Regency" for "The Annual Blog Awards 2010" or known as TABA 2010, I'm so inspired to join the fun by sharing my own nomination. I'll just post here the blogs that I want to nominate.

Charming Blogger of the Year. Zeb of A Blog's Life Zeb. Why? The blogger's positive outlook in life is very contagious with posts that will make you smile.

Master Pogi Blogger of the Year. Zander of A Boy Named Zander. Need I explain this? His "pretty boy" image in my Google Friend Connect parade speaks so loud. :)

Most Active Blogger (Blog Category). Lhan of Notbuk ni Lhan. I'm sure you wouldn't disagree. He's taking care of two blogs but he's able to get very active in the blogosphere. I always get messages from Lhan in my message box. That's everyday, by the way.

                                                           Bino of Damuhan Tambayan ng Pinoy. A daily message from Bino through your blog makes a blogging day so refreshing. Being an active blogger, he knows what I wrote the other day or even last week. That makes his blog grow tremendously, I'm sure.

Photoblogger of the Year. AXL of AXL Powerhouse Production Inc. I really like his amazing photos about Luneta Park. With matching explanation or catchy caption, you'll feel like you want to visit the places he candidly captured.

Since Lhan nominated My Regency for Best in English Blogger of the Year category, I'll be happy for your support. After all, blogging is fun, right?

I'm not really good in English, yet I'm trying to share my deepest thoughts on topics I share. I'm just inspired by amazing blog readers and blogger friends like you. Thank you so much.

Maybe you like to read, My World Is Shaking, promise it's fun.

My World Is Shaking

My excitement for the last two hours is visible. Mom prepared so many food and drinks for us to enjoy. Outside our house, people were busy preparing things for New Year. I've overheard somewhere during morning walks that New Year celebration must be special. That also explains my excitement.

When I was young, New Year isn't fun. I just stayed in my room and eat my share of spaghetti and fruit salad. Although I wasn't so happy at that time, I love the taste of spaghetti. Also, missing my buddy (now my cute boyfriend) added my "drama". That New Year, I just sleep and welcomes the next morning with ease.

This time, we don't have spaghetti. I wasn't disappointed, though. The carbonara recipe my Mom prepared is so delicious! As I'm eating my share, I look at my boyfriend with a smile. I'm thinking to take half of her share once she's done. By that time, my wish that she won't finish eating her carbonara will be granted.

I took some fruit salad in the counter. There's a piece of cake in the table, yet I chose to eat cookies. I stayed in a corner to enjoy the food. Now that I'm seven years old, I felt that New Year is special. I enjoy the music too. When I hear Charice Pempengco sing "Pyramid" and her "Glee" music, I feel like I'm in love.

Mom said that it's almost midnight. I'm so excited with the idea of facing a new year. That would be fun, I guess. However, I'm beginning to wonder what's going on outside our house. There's a huge fire, I'm not sure. Noise is also undeniable. Later on, it became to frightening like there's an incoming war! I heard that bombs were thrown everywhere like in the movie "Band of Brothers" that Mom always watch with Dad. There's a whistling sound, then a really huge 'bang" later on. My feet started to shake and I can no longer walk. Should I take my belongings and prepare for evacuation? How about my boyfriend who seems not afraid of the situation. It felt so strange. Maybe, I'll just pretend that it's not yet the end of the world.

Since I was so shaking out of unimaginable fear, Mom embraced me. That made me so calm and secured. I never thought that New Year isn't fun for a fearful dog like me. Yes, my name is Ice but it's so funny that I wasn't shaking because of cold ice, but because of New Year bombs like triangle, Super Lolo, fountain and many others.

That's me (in brown) and Enzo (white), my boyfriend.

Happy New Year!
