Tonight is the night for kids and people who are kids at heart to go to houses for trick or treat. Candies! Yeah, this is what kids love the most about Halloween. The experience of going from one houses to another collecting candies is what make Halloween so much fun and exciting for kids.
For the record, this is my second Halloween in the US. Last year, I feel indifferent how the people in the US celebrated Halloween. Don't blame me for feeling such. It is just total different on how I celebrated it in the last 23 years. LOL.
Filipinos in the US know that Halloween is celebrated way different here in the US than in our motherland. In the Philippines, it means going to cemetery, visiting the tomb of the dead, bringing flowers and offering novenas. It is the time to remember all of those who had depart already in this world. On the other hand, for people in the US, it means party... a lot of parties and wearing of their favorite Halloween costume and the "trick and treat" moments of the kids on the night of October 31st.

Fall is really here. Living down south could means being one of the last people to experience the real Fall weather. Will you agree?
Here in North Texas, it is only this week that we started to feel the coldness. Wake up early in the morning and you can feel the tingling coldness in your place. The same goes when the sun sets already. Oh, hubby and I agreed that we still don't use our heater. After all, the coldness is still bearable.
For hubby, this weather isn't a problem to him. It is just perfect! Well, I can bear with this but I just need to put on jogging pants or shirts with sleeves if I am at home. No more shorts and sleeveless during early morning and night.
What I am wondering is if this coldness will continue until Christmas. I was able to ask this because with Texas weather, nothing is really stable. Our weather here is very unpredictable. I am sure a lot of other states are the same...

I just talked to my mother today. At first, I thought it was the network provider's connection that was bad but I later found out with her that it was her cellphone that went dead every now and then because the battery is too bad already. I asked her if my father is there so I could call his phone instead. She said he went somewhere and he will not be back in the next few minutes. So, I decided to just hang in there and just told her to text me when her phone is charged.
After talking to my Mom, I decided to look for an unlocked cell phones and plan buy one for her. Of course, I will not informed her that I am getting one for her because I want her to be surprised. Oh, I can already imagine what my Mom's expression will be when you received her new phone. I want to buy an unlocked cell phone so that she will have no trouble in using the phone with whatever network provider she will choose to use.

Busy life, new endeavor, crazy schedule and laziness makes me absent again in my blogs for a couple of days. I failed my promise again to be here everyday. Darn!
You know what? Technically speaking, I was here everyday. Perhaps more than once a day. I have been hanging out here so often but I don't have the will to write something here. What I mean is I feel like I am speechless; I am always out of words when in fact I know I have so much to share could it be something at work or just the simple things that I encounter in my life in the US.
Oh, well, too much excuses if you don't like to do but a lot of ways if wanted to make it happen. That is me sometimes! I hate to think about it but that is so true. I bet a lot of us here are also like me. I didn't say all the time but sometimes we tend to do the other way...lol

Did McCain was able to turn the presidential race story after last night's debate?
I have listen to our (hubby and I) favorite radio station on our way home from work and the host is implying that McCain wasn't able to establish a good advantage over last night's debate. Republicans or Democrats who pick McCain over Obama hope that last night's debate could change the result of the coming election.
Until now, I know there are a lot of Americans who are still undecided as to who they are going to give their votes. With America on the brim of economic recession, everyone is so worried and unsure whether voting McCain or Obama can instill progress to the struggling US economy.
There are some Democrats who will vote for McCain not because they are transferring their loyalty to the other party but they don't agree to have Obama as the president. My husband is the real example to this. He is Democrat by heart and all of you know he is also a black American but according to him his vote, if he will cast his vote, will go to McCain. He doesn't agree with Obama's platforms especially when it comes to the socialist way of giving health insurance to people and his stand on illegal immigration.
No matter what the outcome of the election, I hope that everything will be for the benefits of all the people in America. Comes November 4, I hope everyone will be wise enough and will think not only but million of times before casting their vote. Remember, your vote can either make or break this country...

It was on July of this year when hubby and I spent our six-day vacation in the world reknowned city, Las Vegas! Oh, the city is very amazing especially during night because of the beautiful lights that you will see from one Las Vegas hotels to another and in any other The Strip landmarks. Bellagio's famous "dancing" fountain and the Eiffel Tower at Hotel Paris are just so fabulous.
New York New York, MGM Grand Hotels, Excalibur, Bellagio, Bally's, Flamingo, Caesar's Palace, Mandalay Bay and many more are just few of the beautiful Las Vegas hotels that are available on The Strip (heart of Las Vegas). Do you need assistance in your next booking? Contact i4Vegas.com and avail up to 77% in your Las Vegas accommodation.
When it comes to cooking food for any family occasion/gathering, it is not really a problem for us since hubby and Mom are such a good cook. However, to have a change, I am planning to do my own cooking for the coming holidays. Preparing casserole recipes is what I am considering. Aside from they are yummy; they are also very easy to prepare.
How about you? Any plan for the holidays yet?

****Our Home Away from Home...LOL****
***Yours truly in the campfire arena...hehehe****
Everyone loves the place and appreciate the trip!
If you have a very sensitive skin, then your skin is prone to pimples or worst acne. I know how disturbing acne could be. I have a friend who used to have an acne problem and I saw what she’d been to. It wasn’t easy for her and it is also expensive since she had to go to a dermatologist and bought some prescriptions for acne treatment. How, I wish I would have found AcneCuresRevealed.net earlier because I am pretty sure this would be a big help for her. Just an FYI, AcneCuresRevealed.net is a one-stop website that showcases which acne treatments work the best in some people and maybe for you. It is indeed a great online acne treatment resource!

I will be hypocrite if I will not admit that I do wish to have one, although I never take it seriously because I know diamond jewelry are expensive. But thanks to my husband; he gave me diamond rings as my engagement and wedding rings.
I told him before that stone doesn't matter to me; what is important is him and our love. However, he insisted since according to him, those rings in my fingers symbolize our great love and everlasting commitment to each other. He said whenever he is away or we aren't together, all I have to do is look at the rings and know that he is just with me.
