A Click Away http://www.rytchoice.com Mon, 17 Jul 2017 13:43:54 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.8 To make the waiting fruitful http://www.rytchoice.com/2017/07/17/to-make-the-waiting-fruitful/ http://www.rytchoice.com/2017/07/17/to-make-the-waiting-fruitful/#respond Mon, 17 Jul 2017 13:43:54 +0000 http://www.rytchoice.com/?p=3164 Because of the law imposed by the city government of not allowing the kids to ride the motorcycle, I have to send and fetch the four-year-old nephew at school.  His father can’t send him to school anymore, only the eldest son.  The nephew’s class session is only two hours, I thought of wait for the dismissal or if I will go home after sending him off, I might stick in the traffic and will not be able to come back on the dismissal time.  My daily routine is messed up I must say.  I have to wake up two hours early than the usual, for I have to attend the eight months old niece. I have to get her ready before leaving her under my father’s supervision for two hours.

Two hour of waiting without doing anything is boring.  On my first week, I felt sleepy waiting because I did not bring my tablet.  My companion when I feel bored.  My two hours is wasted, too bad.  Now I have brought my tablet with me.  My two hours will be fruitful for I will be busy writing new post for my blogs.  Hopefully I will get to write many while waiting for the nephew.  Time is gold and wasting it is not good either.  My idle time waiting will be fruitful now.

I wish to have my sewing machine http://www.rytchoice.com/2017/07/09/i-wish-to-have-my-sewing-machine/ http://www.rytchoice.com/2017/07/09/i-wish-to-have-my-sewing-machine/#respond Sun, 09 Jul 2017 14:10:52 +0000 http://www.rytchoice.com/?p=3162 Sewing our curtain using my hands and needle and thread was my first sewing experience.  I was 17 then I think and was trying to show my inner talent.  Since we do not have a sewing machine, I just get needle and thread and started sewing the curtain by hand.  It was a success and I am so happy with the outcome.  The only problem is that it is not sewed perfectly.  It will not last long.  But still glad that I can sew it and proved to myself that I can sew.  I have the talent which I got it from my late mother and I will develop it.  That is what I told myself back then.

The second sewing experience was when I did the nieces and nephew’s costume on their book parade at school.  And the third was when I sewed the costumes of the nephew and his classmates on their presentation for their recognition day.  Thanks to our neighbor for letting me borrow her sewing machine.  Those experiences make me so happy because in a way I can pursue my dreams to become a dressmaker just like my mother.  I wanted to study dressmaking but was not able to do it for financial reason and I do not have time yet.  I wish to really pursue this dream of becoming a dressmaker someday.  Since I did not study yet, I wish to practice while waiting for the time to study dressmaking.  And I can only do that if I have the sewing machine.  Hopefully, I get to buy and have my own sewing machine.  Who wants to give and donate for me to buy the sewing machine? *wink*

Catching it up online http://www.rytchoice.com/2017/06/29/catching-it-up-online/ http://www.rytchoice.com/2017/06/29/catching-it-up-online/#respond Thu, 29 Jun 2017 15:15:54 +0000 http://www.rytchoice.com/?p=3159 Yesterday was the finale of the show Asia’s Next Top Model.  And I am so happy that the country’s representative bagged the most coveted title.  For the past four cycle, the country’s representative failed to bag the title, but they do make it to the top three.  I must say that Philippine is a strong contender.  They are a threat to other contestants.  At some point, I do not feel like watching the show because of what had happened to the previous representatives.  But because I am a fan, I am still watching and supporting the contender from the Philippines, my country.

The Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 has just ended.  I am so happy that the country’s representative brings home the bacon.  I missed some episodes because of show conflicts.  We only have one television at home, and I do not have the full authority.  I do not feel bad at all every time I missed an episode because I can catch up by watching it online.  Thanks to my internet connection and to this modern technology.  I can watch it all over again.  Anyways, congratulations to Maureen Wroblewitz for winning the Asia’s Next Top Model.  She may be bullied by other contestants, but she stood still and proved to them that she deserves to be there and proves to them that she is more than a pretty face.

Ready for her pre-course in school http://www.rytchoice.com/2017/06/16/ready-for-her-pre-course-in-school/ Fri, 16 Jun 2017 14:23:45 +0000 http://www.rytchoice.com/?p=3154

The niece is in grade 9 and they have their pre-course.  She is a bit confuse of what she wants to take on her pre-course.  She is asking my opinion of the best pre-course to take after showing to me the pre-courses offered at their school.  If I were to decide I would like her to take the baking course.  It would be a perfect choice because it will surely help her if ever she wants to put up her own business in the future.  But, I must let her pick the course she likes.  It is best if she takes the course she likes so she will be enjoying doing it and will surely do well on the things she likes.  I do appreciate the niece on approaching me, it makes me feel special. 

Anyways, the niece took the computer related pre-course.  It is a good choice still and I wish her the best of luck.  She will be needing laptop, printer for school assignment and homework.  I am giving to her my old laptop, she just has to reformat it because it was infected by virus.  I did not bring it back to the technician who formatted it first because I opted to buy new one so the niece can use my old laptop.  Hopefully it will be reformatted because her pre-course class starts. Good luck to my niece and enjoy your pre-course and your life at school with your friends. 

Wishing to have new fishing rod http://www.rytchoice.com/2017/06/04/wishing-to-have-new-fishing-rod/ Sun, 04 Jun 2017 12:08:27 +0000 http://www.rytchoice.com/?p=3150 The older brother’s first love is go fishing.  He loves to catch fish even when we we’re younger.  We saw his passion to it.  This is because we live near the beach and he saw fisherman caught fish every day.  Makes him dream to go fishing when he gets older.  We even teased him before to pursue this dreams and stop going to school.haha!  But this passion of him has gone when we moved to new place.  His passion shifted to playing guitar.  Which is nice because we can do bonding on our leisure time.  He will play his guitar and I am his singer.  Not a good singer though.haha!

Indeed, it is true that love never dies because the brother’s passion in fishing comes back.  He meets new friends once when we go to the beach swimming.  His love for fishing brings back and now he wanted to join his new-found friends in fishing.  He will not be doing it full time though, just during Sunday which is his day off from work.  The brother is now looking for a new fishing rod.  His old fishing rod is not good for fishing and he is wishing to have new one.  Sorry brother can’t grant your wish right now, maybe some other time when our resources is enough.

]]> Payable in 12 months http://www.rytchoice.com/2017/05/27/payable-in-12-months/ Fri, 26 May 2017 16:01:35 +0000 http://www.rytchoice.com/?p=3147 Infected files… Two words that made me decide to buy a new laptop instead of bringing it back to the technician who fixed it twice.  I cannot afford to spend more money and will end get busted again.  I have spent as much as buying a new laptop fixing it and I regret it.  I should not be stubborn when the sister told me to buy a new one instead of bringing it to the technician.  I am so pissed thinking of the bad decision I made then.  I should have listened to my sister then.  This is what I get from being so stubborn. Well, I just do not want to give up the old laptop which has sentimental value.  It is a remembrance from working so hard in blogging for the past four years.  Unfortunately, I end up giving it up.

I have a new laptop now, oh, it’s a netbook.  I prefer the smaller size and lighter one so it is easy to carry and not heavy.  Since I do not have money, I am using the credit card of my older sister.  I picked a not so expensive unit so I will not have a headache paying it.LOL!  It is an installment and I have to pay it in 12 months.  I hope and pray that more opportunity comes so I will be able to pay new netbook and internet connection.  I am enjoying my new partner in blogging now and it makes me happy.  It is fast, pretty and slim.

Fashionable, even in my Dreams http://www.rytchoice.com/2017/05/26/fashionable-even-in-my-dreams/ Fri, 26 May 2017 05:29:07 +0000 http://www.rytchoice.com/?p=3145 This week I have received more invitations to social events that I have to put on my already busy calendar.  I might not know what to bring to the baby shower or the Girl’s Night Out, but I do know where I’ll shop for the new clothes I intend to buy because I’ll search Groupon first, then head over to the Barney’s site.  I go to Groupon to start all my shopping because I love the variety of coupon deals and special codes they list on their site.  When I shop Barney’s, I know I’m going to find something that is just my style.  I shop Groupon so I can get it for less.

I’m very happy about the upcoming wedding and can’t wait for the big day to arrive.  I’ve already decided on the color I’m going to wear and how I’ll style my hair.  But I haven’t found the dress.  Barney’s has an incredible selection of spring and summer looks that will be perfect for any occasion.  And they even offer deep discounts of up to 75% of new inventory.  Sometimes I just browse the website looking for inspiration.  I imagine where I’d wear all the beautiful clothes I see on the pages, and imagine myself among the fun and interesting looking people I see profiled in the stories they post.

In my mind, my wedding would take place at New York’s City Hall.  I just love the iconic architecture of that building.  My dress would be from Barney’s and so would the dresses of the other women in the bridal party.  We’d all show up together, we’d search through the racks of dresses until we all found something perfect.   Then we’d meet up with the groom for the ceremony.  Since the wedding is going to take place so close to the Brooklyn Bridge, we’d walk from City Hall to the foot of the bridge and take photos.  The area looks really industrial around there and my soft Evangeline linen-silk one shoulder dress would really stand out in the pictures.  I’d wear a stacked heel by Prada, I’d wear fresh flowers in my hair which would be pulled back and topped with a birdcage bridal veil with just a wisp of lace.  It would be lovely and simple.  But most of all, it would all be so affordable because I’d use Groupons every step of the way.  Well, I might not ever see that dream come true, but I can find the those looks and more at Barney’s.

]]> Searching for a nice beach to have our family summer outing http://www.rytchoice.com/2017/05/17/searching-for-a-nice-beach-to-have-our-family-summer-outing/ Wed, 17 May 2017 15:21:46 +0000 http://www.rytchoice.com/?p=3140 Before the school year starts, the sister thought of treating the kids at the beach.  It will also be our family summer outing and bonding.  We usually have our summer outing every year, but this year I thought we will pass because we have other priorities that needs to be be done first.  It was an abrupt decision of my sister.  We have not know yet where to go.  One thing is so sure, it will be at the beach.lol  She wanted to go at the south part of the city.  The problem is I do not have any idea of a nice beach in the area.

The abrupt summer outing will be this Sunday.  I have to search online of a nice beach soon.  I only have three days to do this.  Argsh!  My sister gives me short time to do this.  I wish I can do this mission.  Good thing I have internet connection, I can search online of a nice beaches easily.  Thanks to this technology for it will make this searching job easy.  I have to start now so I can report to my sister if there is any nice beach and have to show her the beaches for her to decide.  My goodness, I have to think of my outfit too.haha!

The laptop is busted, again! http://www.rytchoice.com/2017/05/07/the-laptop-is-busted-again/ Sat, 06 May 2017 16:33:22 +0000 http://www.rytchoice.com/?p=3137 My laptop acting badly for the last two weeks.  There are lots of unwanted and strange pop ups when every time I open a new tab.  It gets into my nerves and I am tempted to throw my laptop.  I felt really angry that I brought it to the technician the first time the laptop stops working.  I should have bought a new one instead of spending much hoping that it will go back to normal.  I end up regretting my decision back then.  The amount of money I have spend for this laptop to be repair is as much as the amount of a new netbook.  I really should have bought a new one.arghs!

I am in the mood to update my blogs today but the laptop is not helping me.  It does not open the browser.  I cannot open my blog.  Unwanted pop ups is still there.  I wonder why this is happening when in fact the laptop has just been reformatted two months ago.  I really do not know what is wrong with my laptop.  Thanks to my sister for lending me her laptop.  Right now I am thinking of bringing the laptop back to the technician of bought a new one.  It really breaks my heart thinking of the money I spend just to repair this valuable laptop of mine.  I guess I just have to close my eyes and give up the old laptop.  What do you think?

]]> Designing his wedding invitation http://www.rytchoice.com/2017/05/01/designing-his-wedding-invitation/ Mon, 01 May 2017 06:09:35 +0000 http://www.rytchoice.com/?p=3134 In two months, my older brother will finally tie the knot.   We are helping him in preparing his wedding because his wife to be cannot move freely because of her condition.  She is two months pregnant and advised not to take extra movement because it is dangerous.  If possible, she will just lay down till the baby turns three months said the doctor.  I am glad that the brother seeks our help.  Instead of going to the shop who make wedding invitations, we will just use the technology that we have and search online for a simple and nice design.

I will just get the style of the invitation I search online and show it to my brother for him to pick of what wedding invitation he likes.  We will not copy the invitation fully, we will just get an idea though.  I am glad the younger brother knows a little about the job of a graphic artist.  He can help the older brother on designing his wedding invitation and tarpaulin.  We are still gathering details on their wedding, and looking for a nice wedding tokens/giveaways.   Hope we will be able to finish it early so we have enough time to rest and relax waiting for the big event of my brother and his wife to be’s wedding day.
