the reader in me

supermom fact 81: i love reading a good book!

i could just happily spend an entire day with a thick book. but don't get any wrong idea coz i won't even dare call myself a bookworm (i do wish i can). so it's a shame to admit that i actually haven't crossed the threshold of the so-called literary masterpieces. nope, not even the classics.

wait, what? i suck? yeah, i know.
in my defense though, i did read Around The World in 80 Days and i seriously think it was good.
so you see, my taste in books is not that bad. (heh!)

anyway, i'm not a big fan of science fiction either. (okay, seriously, lower down those eyebrows and pick up your jaws!) i understand that a lot of people love science fiction stuff but i'm really more into stories that have a hint of reality in them. stories that were set in real places, real cities. stories that depict the real world, real events, real people --and the realities (bliss and crisis) that we, mortals creatures humans , are most likely to face (or are facing) in our every day existence lives.

so i enjoy a variety of book genres from courtroom drama (John Grisham), murder, mafia, con suspense (Sidney Sheldon), romance/love stories (Nicholas Sparks, Jude Deveraux), romantic/comedy (Jennifer Weiner, Sophie Kinsella), to a bit of fictional history (Dan Brown). i also read self-help books, the ones that tackle parenting, motherhood, health and the like. recently though, i also started indulging in business and entrepreneurial ebooks.

also, an extra supermom fact: this may sound really biased but i have the tendency to pick and flick through books (esp. those with authors that i haven't heard of) based solely on their titles and cover designs. it's just that i think that if it's really an awesome book with an awesome story, then it should kick off with an awesome cover, you know? :)

and yes, the same goes with my food! (again, if it really taste THAT good, then it should look that good too!)

what can i say, i'm a very visual person. O.o

ps: i was hoping to attach a few ebooks of the authors i mentioned above but i didn't realize there was  no "attach file" option for the posts. i guess i would have to upload them first somewhere and then just attach the links (to the ebooks) in the post. *sigh* sorry. :( i'll just update the post as soon as i can.

who moved my cheese?

a few months ago, i promised to share with you some of the ebooks that i've read. i've been so caught up work and everything that i wasn't able to follow through with that promise. (sorry) truth is, i hadn't even updated this blog for a long time. sigh.

anyhoo, the first on the list is entitled "Who Moved My Cheese" by Spencer Johnson.

it's actually more of a self-help kind of read. it is a very short (the hard copy is real thin) and simple story but can have a profound impact on the reader. "who moved my cheese" is a storybook on dealing with change/s in our lives. and i have to say that this book has a way of uncovering your desires and questioning your beliefs.

so if you're up for the read, click me so you can get it. Enjoy!


Bonding Time!

After a few months of busy weekends and low cash, Ezra and I finally went out again for some Sunday bonding time. What we usually did before was, we just go out and play and eat. Fine, he plays and I eat. ;) And yesterday was no different, 'cept that "I" also did much of the "play" part. We had some snacks first. Fortunately, I had some discounted vouchers for Dunkin Donuts DunkCoctions. I was hoping I could try their Coffee or Mocha drink but kiddo wanted the strawberry one. And since it was his day, mommy did what she does best -- give in.

Good thing, I'm a sucker for anything strawberry-flavored too. :) Must be the genes. perhaps.

After the eating part, we went straight to the GameZone area. We had a handful of WOF (World of Fun) tokens, which we won during the JolliEaster Event at Parkmall, so we just went and played on almost every game machine. One of the interaction games that got us hooked was the "Pang Pang Paradise". Yes, I said "h…
