hopefully ill be able to post pictures...

Been here for about 4 months now. Though i lived here before it's a lot of adjusting to do..
I'm currently stay at home mom and taking classes online. Winter's activities (kumon and gymnastics) is what makes me busy. I go to Y to workout and Yoga. Waiting for a phone call for a job offer. Hopefully soon!

Keiki Aloha Run

Keiki Great Aloha Run

The course takes participants around the Neal Blaisdell Center (NBC) and McKinley High School. The course is approximately 1.5 miles and is for children 12 & younger. After the run, children and their adult participants enjoy a fabulous Circus Party hosted by KRAFT Hawaii, including t-shirts, goodie bags, ono snacks, keiki activities, and a free entry into the Sports, Health & Fitness Expo.
Winter poses before the start of the race...
Auntie Reina & Ninang Charing

Winter being serious to get to the finish line..
And there...she did it!!! With Uncle TJ & Auntie Princess after the race.

There were activities like magic show, tattoos, bubbles & more but the most fun of all were all the free treats! lol...bottled water, bananas, apple with dippers from mcdonalds, donuts from love's bakery and ice cream from meadows gold. Winter had so much fun! Pictures were from my phone, i forgot my camera! lol. My cousin brought hers but it's dead haha. I was gonna go home and get it but i might not make it on time to come back. It's so often that I dont have a camera that's why. I've known to be a camera a whore lol...

Happy New Year


Yes, im still here...sorry for not able to post that often now
Busy with work as usual...I don't have all the time in the world now like i used to do when I was a stay at home mom...8-10 hours of sleep, nap time, watch TV whenever I want..watch my soap operas, all the other series, sports and more..internet 24/7..now..i barely have time to watch anything on TV and internet just to check email from the hubby..
.....work is good..getting enough hours still
I was sick this week with a bad cough and missed 2 days from work...i lost my voice!!
and add my rashes on my skin that i had to go to see a dermatologist
I hope this next week will be better

I was very happy with the outcome for Winter's birthday party on the 20th of December. (sorry for the late update)...Her party was at Farrel's ice cream parlour & restaurant in Windward Mall....here are some pictures

Honolulu Zoo Sundae (about 40 scoops i think)

some of her gifts

Thanks to my sister Reina for taking the time to do these

& took her to the glow putt afterwards

Thank you to all our family and friends that came to celebrate Winter's 3rd birthday. It was very meaningful that everyone came. Thank you for all the presents too!! She loves all of it and I think she had too much gifts of toys that it will last a year before she will be able to open and use them all lol.

More updates...I promise.

Happy New Year to all...Let's start 2009 being optimistic with every aspect of our lives.

Hope Everyone will have a blessed 2009!
