2020 Goals like save time on grocery shopping with Instacart

Happy 2020 everyone! I love new beginnings. I am looking forward to what's ahead of us. I am listing some goals which I wish to achieve this year. I have been a stay at home for 8 years since 2012. Well, I haven't achieved anything but as a full-time mom. I love goal setting, so I am full of hope that this year I won't stumble.

Aaaah, anyway, I took a part of my time to study bookkeeping and I finished it for two months. I gained friends and I learned a lot. I hope that I can use it this year. 

So I wanna share with you some of the goals:

1. Homebased Job - I wish to be hired part-time or full-time as an accounting or bookkeeper. Why home-based? Workers who perform their responsibilities and task at home can be flexible and no need to wear a uniform or business attire. You can wear anything even if you're still in your pajamas. You may also watch over your kids while doing home-based jobs. Earn dollars as much as you can. Be a virtual assistant, online tutor, customer service representative, bookkeeper/accountant, social media manager, blogger etc. As long as you have the skills, sell your self to the best clients.

2. Work Abroad -  If ever I am not really meant to be a home-based worker, my other option is to go abroad and help my husband to earn a decent income. We were planning to save money to start building our own house. It's time to be independent and be ready for our children's future.

3. Save time on Grocery Shopping - Most of the time, going to the market or supermarket to buy the things we need or food to eat became a hassle. Traffic, pollution and a long line of customers. Trying to avoid all of these and do shopping online that will be delivered on our doorstep. Almost anything can be purchased online today. That makes life easier. Try visiting  Instacart where you can find 1000's of products, same-day delivery, they make deliveries in cities like Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Chicago, Austin, Washington D.C, Houston, Atlanta and many more. Save time and money by finding exclusive deals on popular products — delivered to your front door! You have now all the time to focus on your New Year's Resolution because shopping is much easier.

4. Be a Youtube Partner - As you can see in my previous post, I have food vlogs and a general vlog. So you can watch all my videos here and my food vlogs here, bear with me as I am not a professional when it comes to editing videos but I am doing my best to share with you some inspiring and worth watching content. And also I am not a chef, I am just sharing what I can cook. You are all free to comment on your opinions and beliefs. If you like my videos, please do like, share and subscribe to my channels. Thank you so much!

That's my goal for this year. Seems easy but actually so hard to achieve except number 3.  Just always pray, work hard, stay strong, focus and be healthy. You may think that your life is nothing, or nothing is happening because you are just at home, but actually, you are being strong day by day, believing that you can fulfill all your goals in life. As they say, live life to the fullest. Thank you 2019, welcome 2020!

Judy Ann Santos is Muslim Mom in MMFF entry 2019 "Mindanao" by Brilliante Mendoza

December 19, 2019 0 Comments

Judy Ann Santos is Muslim mom in MMFF 2019 entry ‘Mindanao’ by Brillante Mendoza
Judy Ann Santos plays a Muslim woman in “Mindanao,” one of the eight official entries to the 2019 Metro Manila Film Festival. The film is directed by Brillante Mendoza, the first and still the only Filipino filmmaker to win Best Director at the Cannes Film Festival.
Written by Honee Alipio with Armando “Bing” Lao as the creative consultant, “Mindanao” marks the first time animation is included in a film directed by Mendoza. It features Santos as Saima Datupalo, a Muslim woman who is taking care of her cancer-stricken daughter Aisa Datupalo (Yuna Tangog) in a temporary home for children with cancer called the House of Hope in Davao.
At the House of Hope, Saima retells to Aisa the epic tale of warrior brothers Rajah and Sulayman fighting against the dragons Ginto and Pula, a story that mirrors the harrowing life in Mindanao. Allen Dizon plays Saima’s husband Malang Datupalo, a combat medic who is in an offensive operation in Maguindanao.
To play Saima in “Mindanao,” Santos had to learn how to perform a Muslim dance. She was trained by choreographer Al Bernard Velarde Garcia.
As a Christian actor, Santos did not find it difficult to play a Muslim character. Aside from having Muslim friends in real life, she said what made it easy was the guidance of Mendoza and Muslim cast and crew on the set of “Mindanao.”
Ketchup Eusebio, Epy Quizon, Richard Manabat, Kiko Matos and Jun Nayra play soldiers in “Mindanao.” Also in the cast are Vince Rillon, Ruby Ruiz, Chai Fonacier, Fe Saligumba, Perry Dizon, Nezzar Piti-Ilan, Vicky Ozawa, Emma Ressureccion, MJ Jacobo, Aileen Sahibad, Racma Caman Tonga, Abdulhakim Suare and Jenny Mondido.
Executive produced by Mendoza, “Mindanao” features Team App’s animation, Hiroyuki Ishizaka’s sound design and Teresa Barrozo’s music. Maan Chua also appears in the film as a singer, performing her original song “Itadyak.”
Prior to the MMFF 2019, “Mindanao” was screened in several international film festivals including the 24th Busan International Film Festival in South Korea, the 32nd Tokyo International Film Festival and the 41st Cairo International Film Festival in Egypt. The film earned Santos the Best Actress award in the 2019 Cairo International Film Festival.
The MMFF 2019 is the 45th edition of the annual Filipino film festival organized by the Metro Manila Development Authority. Along with the other seven entries, “Mindanao” will be screen in theaters all over the Philippines from December 25, 2019 to January 7, 2020.

3 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Videographer

December 07, 2019 0 Comments

Canva Design

Your big day is just around the corner. The wedding dress is sealed in its plastic bag. The rings are polished to a shimmering shine. The band’s setlist is finalized and the caterer’s menu has been checked and double-checked. Still, you can’t help but feel like you’re forgetting something.

Oh no, you forgot to hire find a videographer for hire!

Hmmm, well… maybe you don’t even need one. Do you?

Who are you kidding? Of course you need one! You just need to be reminded of why.

Memories in Motion

Still photos are great, but they can’t move or speak or sing or laugh or cry. By all means, hire a photographer to take posed and candid photos. But get a videographer too; the two complement each other wonderfully. With video, you won’t have to worry about scenes looking stiff and unnatural, nor will you risk missing out on the smaller memories hidden between the big ones: the teardrop your mother dabbed from her eye so it wouldn’t ruin her makeup or those teeny tiny steps the flower girl took as she walked down the aisle. More importantly, without video how will you ever be able to relive the best man’s toast, your inebriated father-in-law’s questionable dance moves, or your spouse’s heartwarming’ vows?

Subtlety and Style

If you’re picturing a situation where some nosy cameraman is following you around all night with a boom mic and a bright light giving you point-blank sunburn, think again. It’s not the ‘80s anymore. Today’s videographer knows how to be a fly on the wall. With smaller-than-ever digital cameras, powerful mini microphones, and lenses that can pick up light in even the darkest settings, neither you nor your guests are likely to even notice you’re being filmed. All the better to capture your loved ones in their natural state. What’s more, most videographers work in groups of two or more, ensuring that your most important moments are immortalized from every angle.

Versatility of Vision

Where photography is limited in what and how it can depict your most cherished memories, with video, the possibilities are endless. Want a full-fledged two-hour documentary about your big day? A videographer can do that. Prefer to have a bunch of smaller, shorter clips that you can watch and share with ease? A videographer can do that too. Go traditional or get creative: turn your wedding into a music video or a movie trailer. Request a filter to make your reception footage look like vintage film, or use slow-motion replays to see the bouquet toss in all its chaotic glory. Videographers have a multitude of tools at their disposal and the knowledge of how best to use them, so don’t be afraid to ask for anything, no matter how unconventional it may seem. A good videographer knows how to make it work.
