Action Camera Blog Review - AKASO EK7000 4K Action Camera

Here's the video of me making a blog review on our new AKASO EK7000 4K Action Camera. We are thinking to get a GoPro but we don't have extra $200-$300 in our budget right now. We are going vacation this month of April but we need a reliable Action Camera that we can take when we go snorkeling so we look up at and we found this AKASO EK7000 4K Action Camera on their Best Seller list so we give it a try and we got it only for $69.99. We read the review and it said, its best buy for the money so yes, we got this action camera at Amazon and so far we are happy with it. It's easy to set up, it has 18 items along with it including mounts, tithers, the case and strap bandages and so on. Can't wait to use this action camera on our vacation! Watch  my video and give me a thumbs up!

Healthy Green Juice using Omega Juicer

We had this Omega Juicer for more than 3 years now and so far it works really good. I made green juice almost everyday or sometimes couple times a week. My husband use green juice when he wants to go on a diet. It's a fast way to lose weight. My kids love Apple, Carrot juice. I just add a little bit of lemon to it. For me, I love all kinds of vegetable juice. Its very healthy and its very good on my skin. Its the best way to eat vegetables! If you don't like vegetables, made it into juice! Enjoy and Thanks for watching!

Our house got on fire?

Saturday morning, we receive a call from one of our friend telling us that our house is on fire! My husband can't believe what he hears, but our friend said, that he is in front of our house and the fire fighters are trying to put the fire out. So we got very worried so we head out home right away after we hear it. Thank God is not a big fire, we are still fortunate that only the side of our house is damage and our dog is safe. 

The cause of fire is: Our dogs knock over their heat lamps and the straw caught on fire, their kennel was burned and since our gas meter is just in the side of their kennel, it caught on fire too and it cause explosion. When our neighbors hear the explosion, they respond right away and called the fire station. The fire station is 3 blocks away from our house so they came so quick before the fire gets big. 

My husband called the insurance right away and yes, we didn't have heater and we can't cook that time. The house still smell smoke but its not as bad in our bedroom because we have a door to separate our kitchen and utility room. We're thankful for our brothers and sisters and friends that help us, they offer accommodations and 4 oil heaters to keep us warm for couple nights. The kids was sad and upset especially my son, he cried when he hears that our house is on fire. But we told them that nothing to worry about because daddy will taking care of it, our insurance will taking care of it too. So they stay for the night to their friend's house for a sleep over. It could be worst if the fire fighters didn't came on time. That was pretty close! Now, we also learned a lesson not to put heat lamp close to the straw. And turn it off when we leave from the house. 

For now, we are waiting for our contractors to make a bid and for the approval of our insurance, the gas meter was already replaced so everything was good. We bought air filter and the smoke is starting to go away. I just hope that they will finish fixing that side wall and the utility room before our vacation coming! So Will see.... 

Excited for our Florida Trip this April!

Yay! My kids and I are very excited when my husband told us that we are going for vacation at Florida this coming April! We really wanted to take the kids to Disney World but I didn't expect that it would be too soon! I thought it will be maybe next couple years, but imagine this Spring? WoW! Me too I am very excited! I never been to any Disney Parks before and I never thought I could go to one of the Disney Parks in my whole life! I can only see it on TVs, Internet and Movies. I really thank my husband for making that dream come true, for me and the kids!

Since the kids are so excited for this trip, they need to be ahead on their school. They are both homeschooling so it would be easy to be ahead on their lessons and talk the teacher ahead of time. We will be gone for 3 weeks so they need to finish their lessons 3 weeks ahead that way before we go to our vacation, we don't have to worry about their lessons, they will be done by then. So yes, we will keep you updated on our trip and will surely post photos and videos. So thank you again for reading and visiting my blog. Have a great day! 

Lots of Seals and Sea Lions at Monterey!

WOW! Look at all those Seals and Sea Lions! It gets crowded out there! I can hear all their noises while were heading to go Whale Watching. We don't see this very often because we live in a mountain. I'm so glad that we made it to California last November. The reason we went to San Francisco is to get my Philippine Passport renewed. So we got a chance to see all of San Francisco and of course Monterey Bay! This is our second time coming back at Monterey after 5 years! Kids are already growing up and last time we didn't get a chance to go Whale Watching but this time since my daughter is big enough now to ride a boat, then we don't want to miss this chance! We really enjoyed our 3 days stay at Monterey! I will going to miss their yummy clam chowder! My Favorite! 

Princess Monterey Whale Watching

The best part we did at Monterey Bay California is to do Whale Watching. We did the Princess Monterey Whale Watching Tour and we got the upper deck. It was pretty nice! except my 11 year old son, he got sea sickness, he throws up 2 times. Poor little boy  but he really enjoy it though. He said that its nice to see his favorite sea creatures up close. He likes Blue Whales and Humpback Whales. For me I really enjoy Dolphins, they are very playful! I have a video on youtube, here's the link:, don't forget to watch it til the end to see the Whales and Dolphins! My 8 year old daughter's reaction is priceless! Will surely come back again next time, hope will see them more closer! Enjoy!

Our 11th-12th Anniversary Photos - Year 2016-2017

Here's our 11th-12th Anniversary Photos for the year 2016-2017. More years to come for both of us!

For the past 12 years, we have ups and downs in our relationship but we face those problems together. We tried so hard to understand and be patience to one another. Like what they said, the secret of happy marriage is communication, trust and patience and of course we put God first in our family. I have a very loving kids and a very loving husband so I can say that I am truly blessed.

Ocean Sunfish, Monterey Bay Aquarium

I can't imagine that this sea creature are 14ft and about up to 1000 lbs or more. It's nice to see the sunfish at their Open Sea Exhibit. We see a big sea turtle also eating those small tuna fish. Their scientific name is Molas. They are very slow and deliberate swimmers. We see couple of sunfish too out in the ocean when we went for Whale Watching. That was pretty cool! 

Jelly Fish at the Monterey Bay Aquarium

Here are some of the Jellyfish photos I took. Isn't that beautiful? Jellyfish is very pretty sea creatures. They really amazed me. They are strange and captivatingly beautiful. They are one of my favorite sea creature that I always love to see whenever I go to the Aquarium. Kids love it too! 

Then and now photos of the kids from Monterey Bay, CA.

The Kids at the Penguin Egg at Monterey Bay Aquarium, 2011

The Kids at the Penguin Egg at Monterey Bay Aquarium, 2017

Years went by so fast! Can't believe the kids are already grown up. Dustin still remember the time when we first go at Monterey Bay Aquarium last 2011 but Dana said, she can't remember that she went there, so I showed her the photo and she can't believe it. She was 2 and a half years old by then. This is one of my favorite photos of them, very nice! 

Monterey Bay Aquarium, November 2017

11.23.2018 --- This is our second time visit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We still love their Aquarium. This time we didn't see the shark on their big aquarium. We only see the sunfish, sea turtles and small sharks like tiger sharks and hammer head sharks. The good thing is we get a chance to see the jellyfish! I love those jellyfish, very colorful and love the blue background in it. We did the jellyfish tour and we got a chance to touch the moon jelly. Kids love it! So will surely recommended the Monterey Bay Aquarium! 

Sea Side Beach at Monterey

Love the waves here at the Sea Side Monterey. We didn't see anyone surfing but lots of people just chillin and watching the waves. So we get a chance to stay for a while and let the kids play the sand and watch the waves. It was pretty big waves! I got a nice photo of those waves, very nice.

View Deck from the Big Fish Grill, Monterey

This is the end of the Wharf here at Monterey, Big Fish Grill has a view deck open to public, I never tried their restaurant before but I bet they have great food too. I like the view on the deck side. You can view all the boats and the seals. We saw this little guy (Sea Otter), he is just swimming and busy eating something. We stay their for an hour before we head out to eat dinner in one of the restaurants here at Fisherman's Wharf. we end up eating at Fisherman's Grotto for our second night stay. Very good food indeed! 

Fisherman's Wharf Monterey Bay, California

What I like the most here at Fisherman's Wharf Monterey is that they have great shopping area, great seafood restaurants, look at those crabs and lobster, looks so yummy! Love the clam chowder soup! They have bay cruises and whale watching too! Just to sit down in the wharf and see the sunset and eat yummy seafood, life is good! We had dinner at Scales and after dinner, my daughter and I receive a pretty white rose. Sweet! Too bad we didn't try the dessert, we don't have space for dessert that night, I was too full! :-)

Portola Hotel and Spa - View from our room

I really like our room at Portola Hotel and Spa. The bed is so comfy, clean and we had a nice view from our room. Their pool are very nice and cozy, love all the plants and the trees. They have free breakfast for 2, nice breakfast buffet! Will absolutely recommend this hotel. 

Headed to Monterey Bay, California!

Nov. 22, 2017 -- 3:30pm we arrive at Monterey Bay. We had great time in San Francisco and now its time to enjoy our stay here in Monterey! We are staying for 3 nights. This is our second visit in Monterey, our last visit was 2011. Were looking forward to see the Fisherman's Wharf, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Whale Watching! 

We stay at Portola Hotel and Spa for 3 nights, it was a pleasant stay. Its a walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf where they have great seafood restaurants. We had dinner at Scales and the Fisherman's Grotto, very good food, we had a big family seafood plate, it was worth the price. Love their clam chowder soup bowl. Yummy!

Painted Ladies and the Pyramid Tower, San Francisco

Well, our tour almost end but our son got car sick so we end up just taking a quick photo of the painted ladies with the kids and also we just drive by at the Pyramid Tower before we head back to our hotel. It starting to get dark too so what a day we had at San Francisco! Nice to see all those tourist spots that most people love to see when they go visit San Francisco. We drove by at the Lombard Street to see the Crookedest Street too, so it was really nice. It was such a pleasant tour with "Andre" from the Silver Lion Private Tours

Kids playing at the Ocean Beach, San Francisco

It's nice to see the ocean beach! Soft sand and nice temperature. We saw couple people surfing! It looks fun but the water is kind a cold :-) We only stayed for a while since Dana keep begging to go see the beach. Before our tour ends, our last stop would be the Painted Ladies and Pyramid Tower! :-)
