As I've said in my previous post that we went to one of the community college here in our place. Hubby said that they made a lot of improvements in the campus compared to 10 years ago when he first set foot in this community college. The campus is surrounded with a lot of trees and greens. It is very cool because it is shaded. We were walking around after our walk in appointment at the enrollment services. Of course when you walk around the new place picture taking is not to be forgotten, hence the poses above :-)

Ground sirloin beef
salt and pepper
For the sauce: mustard, ketchup, sugar
Saute onion and bell peppers in a little bit of butter for best result before mixing with the other ingredients. Mix ground beef, breadcrumbs, egg, Worcestershire sauce in a bowl then add the sauteed onion and bell peppers. Line the meatloaf pan with bacon making sure you have the other end lose free. Spread the meat mixture in the pan evenly.
For the sauce, just mix the mustard, ketchup and sugar then pour on top the meatloaf. Then wrap the lose end of the bacon on top of it. Preheat the oven at 350deg. Bake the meatloaf for 1 hour or add another 25 min. to make sure it is thoroughly cooked.

When we go to Seattle we always pass by the Seattle Center and check out the fountain there. It really give me a soothing effect watching the water dancing to the tune. Yeah I say dancing because the water spurts out with the music on. I like hearing the classic music. I can't wait for our DD to become older so she can also run around, chase the water like the other kids I saw there. It is really fun. The first time I saw the fountain it's very tempting to join the kids but I hold myself. When we went there last weekend we stopped by there and look at it again from the distance because it was already late.

When we went to Seattle last weekend we also checked out the Pike Place Public Market. As I have said before the they're celebrating 101st anniversary so there were lots of vendors selling fresh produce and products. While we were browsing along I saw these pepper garlands that adorned the tent shops. It was very colorful I can't just pass without taking a picture of it.

On Friday hubby came home early. He said that he will go to the hospital to visit one of his soldiers that was hospitalized due to a raptured appendix. We went to the hospital and afterwards we passed by his office to get his work laptop. On our way home I told him that we need to pass by the store and get milk for our DD. Before we went to Walmart we dropped home the laptop. While hubby opened the back door of the truck the sunset looked very nice. This is taken outside our unit.

The funny thing is that I was really thinking that NBC will show it live from Beijing but hubby ruin the suspense when he told me that it was already done because he saw it on Yahoo. It does sucks! We are in the West Coast and we are 3 hours behind East Coast. They should play it earlier or not saying its LIVE when it is NOT. Oh well, I was still waiting for it and watch the great swimming relay that MP got his 8th! Congratulations to the Swimming Team USA!

We need friends for many reasons,
all throughout the season.
We need friends to comfort us
when we are sad,
and to have fun with us when we are glad.
We need friends to give us good advice,
We need someone we can count on,
and treat us nice.
We need friends to remember us
one we have passed
sharing memories that will always last.
Spread the poem of friendship.
1. Everyday Life 2. Words of Love 3. Sheng's Simple Thoughts . . . 4. Happy Life 5. YOU!
I am passing this poem to Merydith, Ritchelle, Ate Cely, Raquel and cuz Shiela.

My only take on this is that if you are contemplating of getting help to improve your physical beauty, you need to go to a renowned dermatologist like Martin Sands so you will know that you are in a good hands. There are lots of doctors that engages in this business and you don't want that instead of beautifying yourself it will only be jeopardized. Make sure to check that your dermatologist is licensed or certified and the clinic they operate has business permit. You also check the hospital affiliations and trainings in this field. Dr. Martin Sands has all the qualifications you need to know so if you are in the area you can check them out.
I am not fond of reading the book of Guinness World Record but accordingly the woman listed as the tallest woman in the world, Sandy Allen, died on Wednesday at age 53.
She was born 6 1/2 lbs but grew tall. Accordingly, she has a tumor that caused her pituitary gland to produce too much growth hormone. She underwent an operation in 1977 to stop further growth. I think what she had was called gigantism.

Brown rice is still the same rice that we ate except that its bran is still intact. This is why its called whole grain. Being rich in fiber it is good for our diet. We need fiber in our diet everyday and brown rice is one good source of it.

Last night I slept very late because I watched Summer Olympics coverage on NBC. As I have said previously here that US vs Venezuela in volleyball and they have a head to head game but USA won the last set making it 3-2. I am glad the USA won and Stanley was the best player of that game. They will be facing Italy next and I hope they win again.

I read this article about how to maintain your good credit at credit-score.org and it is really very enlightening. They offer services also to those who want to check their credit score. I read on their site some valuable insights. Like before we plan for having another addition to our family we should consider many things. If we want to give our future kids good life we have to be prepared. There should be a plan and most of all we should be prepared, emotionally and financially. I can say that in my experience I have some things that I should not be doing but I did and I am hoping I will be able to correct it when time comes that we will have another child

One of our favorite seafood restaurant is Bubba Gump. When we were in San Francisco we went to one at Pier 39. The wait wasn't that long though even if the place was so packed. We were seated near the window and we can see at our vantage the Alcatraz and the ocean. We had a great dinner and then when we got out I saw this bench that resembles the seat where Forest Gump sat down in the movie complete with this big shoes and the box of chocolate on the side. It's cute :-)

One of the pride of Fairfield, California is the Jelly Belly factory. There is a free tour of the factory everyday from 9am to 5pm. Since we were already there I told hubby that we have to check it out before we go home. We arrived there around 11am already and there was a long line. We were informed that it could take an hour of waiting before it will be our turn to tour around.
The factory is pretty nice and clean. We were shown its history and the process of how jelly belly is being made. They have art work display of different personality which is made up of jelly belly which I think is really cool and creative. Including in the art work is then Pres. Reagan, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe and many others. I enjoyed the tour and we got samples at the end.
After the tour we had lunch at the restaurant where they served sandwiches and pizza in a jelly bean shape. The kids would really enjoy it. They have some fun stuff too inside the factory and you can buy truck load sale of jelly belly in their store. It was a great day and we had a lot of fun.
Another most exciting part of being at school is having your school things. I remember that I do have a lot of art supplies before that I cannot track anymore because I don't properly label it. I wish I was able to have these Dymo Color labels it would have been easy for me to sort my things and avoid losing it. When in school with a lot of students sometimes it's hard for you to always track where your things are especially if someone wants to borrow it. Now I know what I should get to label school and office supplies. The Color labels will make things very visible and different from the rest.
One of the places we went to see while we were in San Francisco is the famous Golden gate Bridge. It is one of the must-sees if you are visiting in the area. I usually see this famous gate in movies especially on X-Men where it was being lifted to connect to the Alcatraz :-) We drove through there when there was still light. I asked hubby to stay there for a little while because I want to see the bridge light lit up.
This bridge was named as the longest suspension bridge in the world when it was opened in 1937 but right now 8 more suspension bridges surpasses its length. The man behind its construction was Joseph Strauss whose statue was erected near the bridge. This bridge spans the Golden Gate, the opening of San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean. It connects San Francisco to the northern tip of San Francisco Peninsula to Marin County, Ca. (source Wikipedia)
Accordingly that this bridge is one of the most photographed bridge in the world as well as the Tower Bridge in London, UK.
This speaker is a blast and because of its great functionality Sean "P Diddy" Combs had purchased four of it to blast his parties.

Early in the morning the next day when we got to Hawaii I woke up hubby so we can go to the beach early. But as you know we have our DD and we need to get breakfast first, we were able to be at the beach around 9am.
Waikiki Beach is just around the corner where we stay so we walked going there and there were only few people and the sand sparkles devoid of trash whatsoever. It was very beautiful to see. We just laid down our beach towel and had our DD play with the waves and sand. We did not let her stay long under the sun because I wasn't sure what her reaction will be since it was her first time. The pictures above are some of the actions we took while we were there.

Back to Seafair, I know it is gonna be fun and the Blue Angels have an air show for two days starting today and culminates tomorrow. I really love to go there but tomorrow will be church day and hubby has to go to church early since he signed up for membership at the church and there is a short orientation for new members. I guess I have to wait next year for it since I heard that they always have air show every year.

We were in Solano shopping mall in Fairfield, Ca when I decided to have haircut. I have been meaning to have it cut while we are still here but I just didn't find the time. So I decided to go inside Master Cuts in that mall. I was waiting for a few minutes while hubby and our DD went for a walk around the mall. Then a lady that I presumed work there came in from her break. She called my name and told me she will do my hair. She asked me if I am Filipina and I said yes. She is also a Filipina. I believe she is in her 40s. We talked in Tagalog since she is from Luzon. It was nice to have somebody from Philippines that does my hair again after almost 4 years. I just had my hair shorten and layered.
The pictures above shows my before and after hair. I wasn't able to get a good picture of it because it was an impromptu decision to have my haircut :-)
