It has been almost a year since I have last posted something here. I’ve been very busy with a lot of things – from my apps to my numerous, time-consuming mommy duties. Anyhow, I will try to revive this blog… somehow.

So what’s up with me lately? My Tres Marias – Yana (my eldest), and Ysha and Yza (my twins) are all in school now. The twins are in Kindergarten I and Yana’s in Grade 1 (She has skipped Kinder II). All of which are trying to cope up with their studies. Yana is still trying to adjust since she skipped ‘Prep’ and there are some new learning concepts and teaching techniques she’s not very accustomed to just yet. Yza and Ysha still have speech problems – but they are ‘talking better’. They took an exam prior to being accepted in school and after the assessment, the school administrator said they can skip the Nursery level. They know more words now, they just have trouble mixing-and-matching them up. Despite all the adjustments, I think all three are doing just fine in school. Biboy, on the other hand, is growing up so fast, running around the house all day and doing all sorts of stuff – and he also keeps me up at night. He has started talking – a bit. Generally, all my kids are doing well.

Never simply call a number and choose a random lawyer. Instead, you need to actually request a consultation to find out whether or not the lawyer you have in mind will be able to help you.

People seek legal counsel for a number of reasons. Maybe you want to have a will drawn up. Perhaps you need to create a trust. You might even need advice for dealing with the police. No matter what your personal legal situation might be, the right attorney can help guide you through the entire process. Remember that a lawyer is someone who has extensive legal experience.

Home and Living : How to Save Money on Home Construction or Renovation

Published by:

Home construction projects can be very expensive – especially if you don’t plan yours quite well. If you’ve been wanting to have a home renovation soon – or if you’re getting your brand new home constructed, here are some tips that can help you save.

Tips in Saving on Home Construction

Never go with the first contractor you come across with

Be the wise ‘shopper’. Get quotations from tons of contractors so you’d know the fair price for the construction project you want to get done. Never go with the first estimate. Most people say you should get at least three estimates but I say it’s best to get five – more is even better. You may be all excited in starting your project but don’t let that excitement tempt you into spending more. Continue reading
