Getting A Haircut!

I have had a horrific bad hair day for more than a month this March-April. I needed a haircut the soonest but the hairdresser/proprietor of my favorite salon at the public market was hospitalized. And no one can replace her in my book. Ah, forgot to tell you, why I am particularly concerned with a hairstylist... there was a time before that they used to make me cry and things like that happen on special occasions too- like the prom, someone's wedding and my graduation. So I'm settling for someone who knows what I prefer na lang.

Thankfully I have this hairstylist/beautician who became a long-time friend and surprisingly a distant relative too. She used to work in Dubai. And she is good at what she does, and her services are cheaper.

So finally she was back today and I got a haircut! I chose my latest favorite style which I got from www.ukhairdressers.com uh-huh, that's where I went to when I was looking for a new style kasi my style was getting tacky, as always.

Here were the styles I chose from....

So in the end, this is what I looked like....

Hahaha, just trying to make you laugh! Whoops, sorry, it's no different than the usual me! Again, thanks but no thanks to the fly-away hair. But I got the highlights okay. ... hey, would you believe no one noticed I got a haircut after all? Yeah, still same old Christinchen.

Iris Analysis

   Last Friday we went for a free iris analysis check-up at the Guiguilonen Baranggay Health Center conducted by iridologists affiliated with Dynapharm Products.

   I nudged my eldest son, Allan, to go with me for a check-up so we can get a glimpse into what is wrong with his health ( he is so skinny and has frequent asthma attacks). Maaga na kami, actually patient #3 and #4 pa kami.

   Allan was amazed that the analysis was accurate, even his headaches the past week were diagnosed. Also that he had asthma, problem with his bronchial tubes, lung problems, kidney, gallbladder, headaches and a hint of acidity. Advise was to avoid coffee and allergens. The iridologist advised him to undergo a detox program and cleansing.

He was given:

Absorbent Activated Charcoal- 3 caps before bedtime

Fern-C 2 caps a day

Ginseng with Honey - 3 caps before breakfast and

Pito-Pito Herbal Tea. All these were sold for Php600 for a 10-day regimen. That's okay basta for Allan.

I was also prescribed the same for detoxification ( but I didn't buy muna) because according to the iridology result I had sinusitis (yes, really chronic), poor eyesight, heart-gallbladder-lung problem. Bronchial tubes are acting up and I got headaches too. The usual culprit must be the smokers I associate with regularly. Numero Uno na ang asawa ko. Oh well, I always had weak lungs since I was a grader.

The general advice for all was to avoid fatty and salty foods, junk foods, caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes and cold drinks (I'm taking this from their prescription note) It was also advised to drink 8-10 glasses of water daily, drink natural fruit juices, eat fruits and vegetables daily and eat raw vegetable salad (Again, am taking from their note)

So when the check-up was over and we were home I realized I wasn't able to check the supplements and if the prescription was accurate ( 3 caps seem a lot, and they didn't ask about Allan's alergic reaction to honey)

I searched further about these and googled Dynapharm and absorbent caps - Dynapharm yes, absorbent caps none. Looked for Dynapharm products on the 'net, found the website but not the products.

Anyways, took me a week to convince myself that Allan shoud undergo the detox program as the supplements are not harmful naman and are commonly known via TV ads. I recall they had among their supply:Grapeseed Oil Extract by Powerlab.com, Taheebo Herbal Tea and Capsules, Heartvit, Kidneycare, Liveraid, Charantia Ampalaya Tea and others.

Allan took all the supplements regularly and he seems okay now. Kind of gained weight, yes in just a few days. No headaches or other symptoms. I'm thinking of having him checked again and get more of those supplements via Dynapharm. Then I found out the company doesn't have these supplements given us but sells other products with great testimonials  Oi! But I found the Dynapharm products interesting so I texted the iridologist if they also have them but I was texted back "none" and if "I'll order the products they have" So ngayon, for the meantime, Allan is still taking the supplements from the iridologist and will soon be done in 5 days. Next time, maybe if we can afford we'll go back to them for thorough check-up and ask for Dynapharm supplements personally. So, Abangan!

It's Our Anniversary!

Photobucket
It's our wedding anniversary today! 15 years together! It's still going to be a simple celebration just as simple as when we first met and lived together all these years. =) I'm also going to finally give my answer to the tag my friend sent me ages ago. Know more about me and my hubby's tug-of-war relationship (My hate-turned-to-love story) Can you remember the day you first met your hubby? Yes, I sure would! Nothing special at that time and no sparks flew. But prior to that, the first time I heard his name and it rang a bell, just strange.... The person who told me they moved in next door also said that he's my age and watch out, he might court me. I just said, not my type. And I really meant it.

When was the first time you met him?

When they moved in next to us. It was the first time I actually met him and I realized he was the younger brother of this other batchmate we had who was talented in theater.

First impression. Friendly and loves to chat. Told me even the funniest stories he already knew from our school. But I found him "overconfident". He was clearly not my type and yet I was taken aback when he had the courage to ask if I somebody has ever courted me. "You're pretty but your not my type I don't like girls who put on weight easily, or girls who are fair-skinned, or girls with physical defects" ... something like that. Ouch, my wounded ego! I made a mental note that I will never ever talk nor greet this guy again. So the rest of our highschool year we never became friends.

Were you attracted to him? Attracted? During that time, if you had asked me I would be rolling on the floor laughing! But, no. It still amazes me though, how I learned to love him when we started being friends.

Were you friends before he became your bf? Yes. It's was the very first time I befriended a guy before the relationship moved on to steady. It was a long, long, long wait for him though and I was an uncaring person that year after having had so many heartbreaks. He courted me February 24th and I decided I liked him October 24th. It's a familiar joke to everyone whom we know. What are the things about him that you are thankful for? He has stood by me through good times and the bad - and I mean including the worst moments of our marriage. I'm glad also that I stayed with him despite all the odds that our family has been through. He has remained my friend. I have so many things to thank him for, just minute details that usually someone takes for granted.. but I see them always. *********************************************

 I'm also sharing this song that I recently unearthed somewhere. (My apologies for the noise) When I first heard it, the lyrics just stuck with me. It echoes our thoughts when we were still friends and not within the confined environment of highschool nor the neighborhood.  

Woke up to the sound of pouring rain The wind would whisper and I'd think of you And all the tears you cried, that called my name And when you needed me I came through I paint a picture of the days gone by When love went blind and you would make me see I'd stare a lifetime into your eyes So that I knew you were there for me Time after time you were there for me Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand Love letters in the sand - I remember you Through the sleepless nights and every endless day I'd wanna hear you say - I remember you We spend the summer with the top rolled down Wished ever after would be like this You said I love you babe, without a sound I said I'd give my life for just one kiss I'd live for your smile and die for your kiss Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand Love letters in the sand - I remember you Through the sleepless nights and every endless day I'd wanna hear you say - I remember you We've had our share of hard times But that's the price we paid And through it all we kept the promise that we made I swear you'll never be lonely Woke up to the sound of pouring rain Washed away a dream of you But nothing else could ever take you away 'Cause you'll always be my dream come true Oh my darling, I love you Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand Love letters in the sand - I remember you Through the sleepless nights and every endless day I'd wanna hear you say - I remember you Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand Love letters in the sand - I remember you Through the sleepless nights and every endless day I'd wanna hear you say - I remember you
