Seafoods on the go!

Me and Hubby always love seafoods. I found a site that features the greatest American Seafood cook off in USA. A recipe gets me and hubby's attention. It is made by Chef John Currence from the State of Mississippi. He called it, "Mississipi Redfish Courtboullion with Seafood Dirty Rice". We love rice and seafoods. This recipe is a perfect combination for us. I will surely make this one of this days. I already downloaded the recipe.

Seafoods are good for us. Asian countries are eating this mostly everyday. According to the research it lessen the risk of having cancer and other diseases. Nowadays, people have come to realize the importance of seafoods in our diet. Various studies and researches have proved that the best sources of good fats, vitamins, and minerals to promote good health can actually be found on different seafoods.

So make the best seafood recipe now. Chaffer thier site now and taste the great american seafood cook off.

She would change him forever!

"She didn't belong. She was misunderstood. And she would change him forever."
That is a famous tagline from the award winning movie "A walk to Remember" wayback in 2002. I really liked that movie a lot, I think I watched it for 5 times! It is such a nice love story of Landon Carter and Jaime Sullivan. In real life, those re Shane West and Mandy Moore. They are such a cute pair. You can always use that tagline in your own life's love story. Im sure there are so many out there who can relate in this.

I found a nice site to play taglines! It is the VO5 Ultimate Flirting Championship Extreme Style by VO5 . I was enjoying playing with it. It is so fun and cool. You can play with the classic lines you have and use it to win! I will diffinitely play again in there.

Go at the site now and play. You will really love it as how I did.

Worst Pick up Line

Have you been out and heard a worst pick up line lately?
Because I did. I have been out last week to buy something on the shop nearby. When I was getting some drinks at the rack, I saw this guy coming to me and saying "Hey Girl, What's up? Guess what? It's your lucky day. Out of all the girls here, I picked you to talk to". I was shocked because I don't know him at all. He is tall with this Stylish Hair Extreme Style by VO5. He is so cool with that hair style but I told him, " Sorry, I need to go, my husband is waiting at me on the house. Look for someone who has the same cool hairstyle as you have". I smiled at him and go at the counter to pay. Before I left, I saw him talking to a girl with same cool hairstyle as him.


He can talk with those girls right away because of his cool hair style. So, if you want to talk to the girls you like and have that cool hairstyle, I suggest you to play
THE ULTIMATE FLIRTING CHAMPIONSHIPExtreme Style by VO5 . It is so cool and fun, I tried to play it. Chaffer thier site now and play your game!

How to Apply for the Civic Exam?

If you are planning on taking the civic exam in Netherlands, your partner must apply for it online first. There is an application form in IND website. After the application, IND will send you mail with informations on where to pay for it. After they recieve the payment, they will send you another mail on the exam number and your fiancee can call the embassy for an appointment.

Got this one from the IND website.

How do you apply
The fees for the civic integration examination abroad (€350) are paid into the central bank account of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Netherlands. The following payment procedure applies in this respect:

  • In most cases, the candidate who wishes to take the civic integration examination abroad has a sponsor in the Netherlands. Responsibility for payment therefore lies with the sponsor, in principle
  • The sponsor in the Netherlands completes the application form on the IND's website. This form is forwarded to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
  • A message is automatically sent to the sponsor's e-mail address stating the payment details and a unique reference number
  • The sponsor transfers the examination fee to the account of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by bank transfer. Please note: it is important that the reference number and the name of the candidate are stated!
  • Once the payment has been received, a confirmation of receipt will be sent to the sponsor's e-mail address stating that the candidate may contact the Dutch representation in order to make an appointment.

long distance relationship

After our marriage, Hubby has to go back home and work for us while I am miles away from him. We wanted to have a normal marriage life as couple but because of the country's rules, we can't stay together for more than a year.

Long distance relationship is not as easy as what others think. It is the hardest part of a relationship. There are times that we wanted to hug each other but how? We only communicate through chatting and phone. He visits me in Philippines every after 6 months! Yeah, 6 months! Long days, weeks and months to wait.

We were so happy when we all have the papers and the visa on hand. And now, I am here in Netherlands for 2 months and with a 2 months pregnancy.

All I think of our situation before was worst! So take my Relationship Advice. Trust and love your partner! It is the most powerful thing in this relationship!

Bringing your partner to Netherlands

There are two ways to bring your beloved fiancee/wife to Netherlands.

First is, if you want to rejoin your spouse or partner in the Netherlands. This is called ‘family reunification’. You were already a family when you lived abroad together.

Second is, if you want to live with your spouse or partner in the Netherlands; you have not lived together before. This is called ‘establishing a family’. When you started a relationship or got married, you were already living in the Netherlands. Your spouse or partner was living abroad at this time.
There are specific conditions for this processes.

  • you are married and your marriage has been registered in the Netherlands, in the municipal personal records database [Gemeentelijke Basisadministratie];
  • or you are both unmarried and you are able to prove this with official legalised documents;
  • you are not a danger to public order
  • you are 21 or older. In the case of family reunification, you must be 18 or older;
  • you will live with your spouse or partner as soon as he/she arrives in the Netherlands:-
  • you are intending to run a joint household;- he is going to register himself at the same address as you.
  • he/she is required to take the Civic Integration Examination Abroad (Caution: he/she is exempted from taking the civil integration test if he/she has the American, Australian, Canadian, Japanese, New Zealand or South Korean nationality).
  • you are 21 or older. In the case of family reunification, you must be 18 or older;
  • you enjoy sufficient income in the Netherlands

Check with the embassy site in your country for the documents needed.
Hope I am able to help you.

MVV requirements

What you need are the following:

Passport
Latest 2x2 colored picture
Partner's copy of passport (scanned or photocopy)
Legalised Marriage contract
Legalised Birth certificate
Exam Result (PASSED)
Travel Insurance valid for 6 months (for D+C visa)


There are 2 different kinds of visa:

The C visa which you don't need a travel insurance anymore but you can't go out of the country while you don't have your residence Permit.

The D+C visa which you have to get a travel insurance and you can stroll at other european countries while waiting for the residence permit.

If you had the advice from IND, you don't need to pay anything in the embassy. Just prepare money for the Delbros (sending the visa in your place) if you are far from Makati. It is much easier than picking up you visa.

My MVV application

When we recieved a mail from IND that my advice was positive. On the following day I called the Netherlands Embassy in Philippines to set an appointment for my MVV application. I called April 13,2008 and got the appointment date of May 15, 2008. That was so long to wait. I thought when I will call for appointment they can serve me on the following week, but I was wrong. So I have to wait again.

I went in Makati at May 14, 2008 and checked-in in a hotel near the embassy. On the following day, I went at the embassy around 7:30 am, appointment time was 8:00am. Good that I already have the application form of MVV (got it the last time I was in the Embassy) so I don't need to fill up there.

When I was in the building, I got my priority number and seated, waiting for my turn to be called. When the counter 1 called me, he has some few questions, get my finger print. It was an easy one because we already have our Positive Advice from IND. When he got everything what he need, he asked me if I will pick it up or use the Delbros. I used Delbros because Im from Mindanao and don't want to go back again to manila just to pick it up. After paying for the Delbros, he called me again to give me the informations I need. I went back home on the afternoon.

I am suppose to wait for 2 weeks for my Visa because I got a D+C visa (while you don't have your residence permit you can go out in other europe countries) and C visa (only in Netherlands when you don't have your residence permit).
Luckily I got my visa after 10 days. It was a fast one.

We will go there later and get it.

Welkom bij het oefenexamen Nederlandse taal (welcome to the practiceexam Dutch language)

Deel A - Nazeggen (part A - repeat)
U hoort steeds een zin, zeg de zin precies na. (you hear every time asentence, repeat the sentence exactly)
bijvoorbeeld, (for example)
de stem zegt: 'Dat is een mooi verhaal' (a voice says: 'this is a nice story')
en u zegt: 'Dat is een mooi verhaal' (and you say:'this is a nice story)

Nu is het uw beurt (now its your turn)
Luister naar de zin en zeg precies na wat u hoorde (listen to thesentence and repeat exactly what you heard)

- dat kan wel kloppen (this could be true)
- Het is niet helemaal gegaan zoals we het verwacht hadden. (it didnt go exctly the way we had expected)

Excited Parents to be!

Me and Hubby are very excited on my pregnancy. We are making it possible that the baby will be healthy and beautiful (lol).
We make joke of it, i call Him "Daddy" and he calls me "Mommy". Everyday, when he is home from work, he kisses me and my tummy always. He is very excited. Its his first baby.
I just hope he is excited with the consequences of it..hehe Like waking up in the middle of the night to make milk or change diapers. When the baby is sick and you have to be always awake. We are talking about it already. We will do it in shifting. Its not easy to raise a baby.
As first timers, we will do our best for our baby and our family.

Leptitrex Diet Pill

In the last months I gained so much weight and was worried on how to lose it, the fat on my tummy and arms make me uncomfortable. I've been trying lots of diet pills that are out on market nowadays, but they don't work on me.

I was so lucky when I saw my collegue one time. She was so fat wayback in highschool and now, she has this great body every boy wants. I was really shocked. So I asked her what she did. And she told me her secret, the Leptitrex Diet Pill.

It is a natural fat loss supplement which also gives you benifits to have great looking skin while lossing the fat out. It has body and liver detox which is very important.
