The Car Was Broke And Yet I Have To Drive For Longer Hours

Last Friday, after I sent Faith to the school, I noticed that I don’t have breaks at all; I have to pump the brake pads so many times before I could break. I was worried because I need to drive to a nearby province for the competition of my daughter and I need the car. Last Saturday, early in the morning I sent the car to the shop to have it check. When the mechanic checks the break, he informed me then that I don’t have break at all. He checked the rubber caps and the Master Cap Kit near the brake fluid; it was almost 8 am when he finished uninstalled both. I have to bring it to the Auto Car Parts as a sample so I can buy the right one. The rubber cap was so easy because the shop near us, they have the parts available but the Master Cap Kit I need to go further and hop to three different shops so I can have it. Yes, the Master Cap Kit is not that easy to find.

I went home right away brought with me the Master Cap Kit; I was hoping I can get the car early in the afternoon. I already sent my daughter to my friend so she will be the one to drive for her and her kids. Mj will be late if I have to keep her with me. The car was sent back to my house before 1 in the afternoon but when the son of the mechanic test in the curving line, the break was gone again. He sent it back to the shop so his father would test and check it.

Later, when I went to the shop, the mechanic said they need to check more, they found out that a bearing on my right side was broke. And I need to buy a bearing; good thing I only have to get one ride for me to buy that car part, one stop and the part is on my hand already. I went back to the shop, Faith is with me this time, my head started to ache because of the humid weather.

It was already near 5 in the afternoon when it was fixed, the mechanic was the one who sent it, it was quarter of 5 that I have to drive going to Tagum. It was 2 hours of drive from Davao City to Tagum and it was getting dark. Faith was behind me and nobody is with her, I just told her to behave because when we arrived in Panabo it was already almost dark. Panabo City is the town after Davao City then Carmen and then Tagum. It was past 7:00 p.m. when we arrived in Tagum, I have to stop in the gasoline station to ask the location of the sports complex. I don’t want to be lost, not this time when I only have enough fuel plus Faith was with me.

I was just able to breathe when I already entered the gate of the Sports Complex in Tagum, just then I could say Faith and I had a safe trip. Now I could tell it to myself I am an official driver now!

Exploring Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain is a prime vacation destination on the Mediterranean.  My interest in Barcelona actually started when I was listening to a song by The Alan Parson’s project which mentioned the “Sagrada Familia” a church designed by Antoni Gaudi. This really got me to want to explore Barcelona to see what other kinds of architecture and sightseeing venues are there

Seeing Barcelona on a Vespa seems like a great idea.  If you go Vesping around Barcelona, I am sure the Sagrada Familia is on place you will see.  It is kind of hard to miss.  I like to do things on my own so a tour using GPS sounds great. tour, will ensure do not miss any of the sites in and around Barcelona.

My husband prefers guided tours.  He feels that having an expert guide, who knows Barcelona, would make sure we not only see the sites, but get the insight of the tour guide and the history behind history of what we are seeing.  A would be ideal for him.

I would certainly like to learn more about the Sagrada Familia and Antoni Gaudi and visiting Barcelona would really make our daughters happy because the love beaches and the water.

I Am On Top Of The World

I am afraid of heights and I would never like it. But yesterday when I parked the car on top of the mall building, I fell in love with the view. It seems to me that I just have to extend my hand and I could reach the sky already. On the other hand, parking the car on top was just but an accident. If I have a choice I would never parked my car there, it is just that there is no parking spot available on the first, second, third, fourth floor so I have to gather my strength and energy to continue going up until I reach the very top. Oh well, it was so hard but as what they said you never get to see the beauty of your life without hardships and perseverance. So in the end? I was able to enjoy the view in front of me.

A  friend from the pool shared me with this through blue tooth. Yes I am still looking for a day time job but I am contemplating whether to go or not because no one is taking good care of my kids at home. I didn’t ask my sister anymore to go to the house yet since I don’t have extra to give her, maybe when I am hired as one of their agents, I can let my sister go back at home and so she can earn. Anyway, I am not sure where is the exact location, if you are looking for a job you can contact the cell phone number given in the picture.
