The Longest Breakfast Menu List



*Start copy here*

The Longest Breakfast Menu List

Everyone
likes to start their day with a comfort food for breakfast. What kind
of food do you take? This would be a good way to find out your blogger
friend’s favourite food for breakfast.
All you need to do is to put
your name down, the country you are in and your favourite breakfast
meal. Let’s see how we can have this breakfast ‘menu’ travelled all
around cyberspace and learn what each blogger living in different
country and what do they eat for breakfast. This meme was created by a
little lady with a penchant to spy around little baskets while
marketing. Her favourite breakfast of the day is none other than Roti
Prata, an indian flat bread. What about you? What is your favourite
breakfast meal of the day?

1. Spymama, Singapore - Roti Prata 2. Yyun, Singapore - Wantan Mee 3. A Simple Life, Philippines - Tapsilog (tapa, garlic rice & egg) 4. It Is Nap Time, America, Biscuit with sausage gravy 5.Super Mae,Portugal-cappuccino and french toasts

Maddie -- What a disclosure...

Maddie McCann

I bet you all have heard this sad story of little Maddie McCann....
In case you haven't :3rd of May of 2007-- 4 year old Madeleine McCann disappeared from "Praia da Luz"Resort in Algarve, south of Portugal...A couple of hours later the parents showed up on every news channels claiming that their daughter had been abducted from the room where she was sleeping with her 2 baby brother and sister...Both of them were calm and talked to the journalists...(How weird is that?I would be devastated,crying my guts out!) It all happened when the parents were having dinner with their friends in a restaurant 50 meters(or so) away...(Do you leave your kids alone to have dinner with your beer buddies?I don't leave my kids home alone!Specially if they're just babies!)
I never saw during this all process that mother crying!...Each time she was on Tv, she had make up on!Ok, now you might be saying that different people act different...But my heart as a mom says that SOMETHING IS WRONG about that!
One year went by...The parents became "arguidos", which means that maybe they had something to do with the little girl's disppearence.Once they're british I thought Portuguese Police would work together with their british fellows to work it out...Nop...They started blaming each other for all that was wrong in this investigation.

Specialized dogs were brought to help the police finding any blood traces in the McCann's appartment and car....The dogs actually found blood odor and death odor in both...The
police found it to be not conclusive evidence...
One of the main police investigators was dismissed before the case was filled...Why?Well, I guess he just knew too much.After all if your spokesman is someone who has been the UK prime minister's spokesman, it's because you must be someone really powerful, right?...This police investigator (Gonçalo Amaral) wrote a book about what he saw and think...Boy, I really wanna read it!
Anyway...The parents say they're innocent...The case was filled...And probably they'll get some more money out of it...
My opinion: they're guilty as hell!
What's yours??

NKOTB-Back then and Now

When I was a teen I was such a huge NKOTB fan!That kind of fan that scream and cry and faint just by looking at them!LOL!I'm still a huge fan but I gave up on the fainting part!
On the other day I was going through of my old stuff and I found some of my drawings I use to do back then.
I decided to go search on Google what a heck had happen to them, and found out that they got together again.I was thrilled!
I took a look at some tv shows and realized that my MIL is right...Men are like a Porto Wine...They get better with the aging process!

Daddy's vacations are over (for now)!!!

My hubby's vacations are over.Well at least for now...By the end of this year he'll have another couple of weeks, but then the weather will be cooler and we'll take that time to go and visit some spots that we didin't visit now cause it's TOO HOT! Anyway, the kids sure had a great time once we took them out almost every day to the beach and to the pool. Last weekend we went over my mom's and brought along some of my hubby relatives. Once again the kids were who had all the fun cause my mom has a swimming pool in her backyard. We (the adults) were more into another sort of fun and cool down!Beers and snacks!LOL! We had a particulary one that I'm pretty sure will amaze you all: Snails (or as the French people say :«Escargots»)!Yep!That's right! My mom does it like no one!

So here goes some of our vacations pics.
