Want to have clear skin?

My niece who is in her adolescence have difficulties finding the best product that will make her skin acne-free. I was recommending different products to her until a friend told me about Murad acne products. She used to have acne problems since we were in college and has been struggling for so many years until she found Murad.

Having a clear skin now, she said that the best thing about this product is it doesn't contain harsh ingredients that will irritate or dry out her skin. Now, my friend and niece is not worrying about breakouts anymore. They are both satisfied Murad users, which is truly an amazing product.

It's her again..

Elyse's 2nd birthday celebration is incomparable to her 1st. For so many reasons, we didn't really plan for a big celebration. We just had dinner at Buffet and Bar Newport here in Brossard, gave her a cake and ice cream that she truly enjoyed. She knew it was her birthday but was in awe when her daddy came in with a cake, singing the birthday song. Soon she realized that it is really her birthday! After that, she was singing the same song for herself until we got home. :)

Before coming here, we didn't have any idea how we're going to celebrate her birthday especially being away from close friends and relatives. Thank God for meeting nice and wonderful people here who treated us like their immediate family. Settling down has been easier with their help and advices. Thank you so much!!!
To my dearest Elyse, Happy birthday! I love you and God bless you! Mwah! :)

Time to Celebrate!

This morning, I got a call from the caretaker of apartment Le 7300, guess what? We got the apartment!!! :D I'm just so excited about moving because of decorating thing, right now, i want to rush to Ikea and buy everything we need. According to the caretaker, we can start moving this friday so, that would be a great start for June! At last, after 2 weeks of waiting! Our relatives here said that we're so lucky that we've got the apartment of our choice since the moving month is July and seldom are available this June. Though we tried to check some other apartments but we love the location and community around Le 7300. I can't wait to move!

For my little girl who will celebrate her 2nd birthday tomorrow... Happy Birthday cutie cute! I love you and more birthdays to come. Daddy and Mommy just want the best for you.. Muah!!! Be good and God bless you always! :)

Our new home!

Hi there! It's been a while! I still have problems with my connections so i seldom go through the internet, i can still go online with yahoo messenger but it is simply giving me a headache.

Anyway, we've chosen Brossard as our home here in Quebec, 10 minutes away from our relatives living in Latouche and 20 minutes away from downtown Montreal. It's a very quiet and safe community, accessible in terms of public transportation like bus and metro. It's also a few blocks away from Zellers, Maxi, Wall-Mart, Pharmaprix and even Champlain mall. It's a plus that there's a recreation center in the area which I guess Elyse will enjoy this summer.

We are hoping to get the apartment this June so we can start living in our own. Our relatives here are very helpful and supportive in every way and we are so thankful for knowing them and choosing to stay with them. We initially planned to stay in a rented apartment than staying with relatives, but i believe we made the right choice. I really don't know what will happen to us without their help and advices.

As of now, I'm planning to take a part-time French class but only after finding a good daycare center for Elyse. Good luck to me! I'm not eager to learn the language even if i stayed in a french speaking country before. I'm just fascinated and hopefully be inspired to speak the language.

So that's it for now and i will try to visit your blogs as soon as possible. Thanks again and bonne journee! :)

Staying for good!

Hi! guys!!! how's everybody? I hope you all are doing great! Thanks for your comments and tags!!! I still have lots of homeworks to do! :) Anyway, we had a wonderful vacation in Paris and Rome, with some showers in Rome, we still managed to visit the Vatican and Fontana de Trevi. I will post some photos soon, for now here's one, I'm just connecting to a free wifi so i really don't know how long it will work out. ;)

Another good news, the day after we arrived here my husband had his first interview and guess what? he got the job!!!! It was unexpected, we didn't even have SSN number yet.. isn't that great? :D He was first interviewed by HR then the Director and Vice President, after an hour or two, he got the job offer signed right away. That was such a lucky day! :)

So my husband finally decided to stay here for good.. we're now scouting for the best place to stay here in Quebec, currently we're staying in Brossard with relatives and we really love the place.
This is just an update and will post more once we're settled here. Thanks for visiting my site and have a wonderful weekend!

I'm so sorry dear friends and fellow bloggers for not visiting your blogs as often as i used to, I'm just super duper busy.. i hope y'all understand. Thank you for your comments and tags, I'll get back to you as soon as i can. :)

We're all set and just trying to patch up few things right now. Our itineraries for Paris and Rome trip are finally done and just hoping the weather will cooperate with us.

Jardin Marjorelle on Weekend Snapshot

The breathtaking Jardin Marjorelle is the most beautiful garden in Marrakech, combining lush vegetation with traditional Moroccan architectural elements. The French painter and plant collector Jacques Majorelle (1888-1962) settled in Marrakech in 1923 and laid out a subtropical garden, which opened to the public in 1947.

After a car accident he returned to France and the garden became overgrown. The French designer Yves-Saint Laurent bought it in 1980, restored it with Pierre Bergé and founded a small museum of Islamic art. Bamboo, towering palms and huge cacti flourish next to a goldfish pond sustaining aquatic plants. Ultramarine walls and tiles are set against the cool green foliage.

I'm still here...

Yesterday, i had courage to finally start my long delayed plan of decluttering our things from those things we cannot live without.. and of course that would be our clothes. As you know, it's not that easy! i have to segregate the pile of our clothes from "let-it-go" to "love-to-wear".. "let-it-go" must go to the black luggage that we can left behind.. "love-to-wear" will go to the blue luggage that we will definitely wear in Canada including our winter clothes... it seems like we're staying for good huh? hmm... we'll see... ohh and there still one more, our "travel" clothes that should be in our hand carry luggage. I'm not yet done with Elyse's clothes and electronic materials, feeding bottles and sterilizer. Whew!!! I'm just hoping that we will not exceed our baggage limit of 64kg per person / 2 luggages per person except Elyse who is allowed for 10kg only? I'm not sure though, i need to verify this again.

It is also "a must" to keep the house tidy and return the furnitures into it's original places so if ever we decided not to come back, the house owner will not charge us extra for cleaning and fixing. My husband is eager to visit "Ifrane", another city here in Morocco but I'm having second thoughts since we're not yet done with the packing. I want to finish everything so we can enjoy our holiday.

So there you go, that is the main reason why I'm not visible in the blogoshere for the past couple of days and i believe it will continue until we're finally settled in our place. I'll just hop around if i have enough time. Thanks again for visiting and see you around! Have a wonderful week everyone! :)
