Buying GiFTs for SinTeRkLaaS eVeNinG

Two weeks more to go, then it is Sinterklaas on December 5. I've just arrived home from shopping, buying toys for the kids. My gosh, toys are very expensive. We have budgetted for each kid that they will receive 5 or more gifts. Since we have two, so I have to buy more than ten toys. It is very tiresome to look for gifts. I have to look at the price and then the age of the child who can play that certain toy. I have a boy and a girl. I have to go the boys section and then girls section or vice versa. I am not yet done. (sigh, sigh). I will go back next week to buy more gifts. After this festivity is it Christmas so another gifts for Christmas. December is an expensive month.

H1N1 vaccine is safe

There are already 28 people in the Netherlands who died in Mexican flu. Dutch are now worried about their health. I heard the news that the Minister of Health said that we do not have to worry about the Mexican flu vaccine. The flu shot is completely safe, said Minister Klink, the Minister of Health. If the vaccine was not safe then it was never marketed. His reactions to the people who don't trust the vaccine. Currently only highly risk group will be given the vaccine such as the elderly, pregnant and doctors. Babies from 6 months old and kids until 4 years old will receive the vaccines. This is the latest news about the influenza epidemic.
How about in your country, what does the government do in order to protect his people against this deadly virus?
Are you worried about your health and your family?
We really hope that this will not get worst.

* Recept van chiffon cake

Joyce, hier is het recept van "Faye chiffon cake"

8 eiwitten
1/2 theelepel cream of tartar (Ik weet het niet in Nederlandse taal)
3/4 kristalsuiker
1/4 theelepel zout
2-1/4 kop gezeefde cake meel
3 theelepel bakpoeder
1/4 kop olie
2/3 kop fanta
8 eigeel

Vulling/ garnering:
jam (zoals frambozen, aardbeien, abricozen, etc.
1/2 liter slagroom (vers of gesteriliseerd)
eventueel. slagroomversteviger
vruchtjes, bloemetjes (wat u maar verzinnen kan)
1 pak banketbakkersroom

Verwarm de oven voor op 175 graden.
De eieren splitsen in eiwit en eigeel.

De eiwitten, suiker en cream of tartar mixen tot het stijf is. Het eigeel mixen daarna de rest van de ingrediƫnten toevoegen. Het beslag moet zo luchtig mogelijk blijven.
Het mengsel in de tulbandvorm gieten.
Bakken gedurende 45 minuten in de voorverwarmde oven. Prik aan het eind van de baktijd even met een tandenstoker. Als de tandenstoker er droog uitkomt, dan is de cake gaar.
De hele vorm met de cake omdraaien en op een rooster laten afkoelen.
Snijd hem dan met een lang mes in twee of drie lagen. Hier komt de jam of vulling tussen. Klop de slagroom zo stijf mogelijk en smeer hem met een mes langs de zijkant van de cake. Deze ingesmeerde rand moet vol met hagelslag, dat gaat het beste met de hagelslag op en bord.
De bovenkant van de cake ook met slagroom besmeren en dan met een slagroomspuit helemaal bedekken met "roosje" o.i.d.
De rest ligt aan uw eigen fantasie en budget.

Gold, the Most Precious Metal

"Gold is forever. It is beautiful, useful, and never wears out. Small wonder that gold has been prized over all else, in all ages, as a store of value that will survive the travails of life and the ravages of time." according to James Blakely
Gold is the most precious metal since it is rare and valuable too. It is often used to make coins and jewelries. Currently gold is not rare anymore because many people are collecting and investing their money in buying gold. They want to preserve their wealth and assets in gold collection. The most popular is the gold bullion coins. This is a wise  investment because the value of gold increases. There is no way that his value will degrade.
Gold comes in different colors like yellowish, red yellow, copper red, whitish etc. But the color of pure gold is metallic yellow. When gold is mixed with white metal like nickel it becomes white gold, that is why we have the white gold.
I have few gold jewelries like necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets. I treasured them. One of the things that my children will inherit. They are so precious to me. Time will come that my children will benefit the value of my collections.

FiRsT PaidposT is IN

I was so happy that Socialspark approved my first paidpost. I sent the post URL last week of October and that was rejected because I sent the wrong post URL. I sent it again and again rejected because the links were wrong. So, I checked if the links were wrong and there I found out when I clicked the links, the site appeared to be NOT FOUND, thus I made another mistake. Yesterday I received an email from Socialspark to edit my post and submit again. So, this morning I edited my post and re-check the post URL and the links before I sent it to Socialspark. I received an email from them 10 minutes ago informing that my post was approved. The post was 7.50 dollars. That was not much but at least they accepted my post. At least they know me now. Hope to receive more opps from them and other blog advertisers. I hope for you too.

At last we are now in our new house. That is the good news. The unpleasant news is that we have to unpack everything and install the cabinets and beds. My hubby had to install first the computer table so that we can use the computer. We found a nice place for the computer table near the kitchen and living room. I can still sit behind the computer every now and then while I am cooking. After unpacking I have to put them to the right places. In the kitchen I have to put the kitchenwares in a place where I can grab them immediately when I need them. We are not yet done. I still have few boxes left to be open.

PaCk and Go

If moving was as easy as on the picture then it was not tiresome at all.
We are now very busy  packing our things since we will be moving to our new house on November 3. Some of the boxes are still open. I told my husband to leave it open since we don't know if we need things that are already in the boxes. But the boxes which we are really sure that we don't need those things anymore are already close. A while ago my husband was angry, he forgot some important papers, those papers were already in the box and he could not find the box anymore, (i just kept quiet) after opening five boxes there he found the folder. It was a relief for him since we need the papers tomorrow. It's tiresome and irritating. Every now and then I take some break, I sit behind the computer to check my blogs and e-mails. Moving  is really tiresome. Hope we will be settled soon in our new house.
