Of course, I know they always do their best to stay in good health but our body is just like a machine, it deteriorates sometimes. Oh, and I am not exception to that. There are times of year, especially when the weather changes from hot to cold, my body usually reacts to it in a not so nice way. I usually have colds, cough, slight fever or regular flu and of course my allergy. I know these aren't unusual. A lot of people tend to get sick when the weather changes. Being here in the US for almost four years now, I thought my body is a little more resistant to weather changes but it is still adjusting.
Anyhow, here's hoping that all of your family are healthy and fit especially that Christmas time is coming. As what they say, even if there's no expensive gifts or more money to celebrate the yuletide season, what is more important is everyone is healthy and thankful for everything that He gives us.

I can't imagine how difficult it is for some people who has been battling with pimples or acne for a long time already. For some people, finding pimple or acne treatment that suits them can be a long and frustrating search. Hence, I admire them for their determination and perseverance. If you are in the same shoe, I hope you will soon find the right treatment for you...
I know it is a daunting task to submit your website or blog URL over and over again. I won't blame you if you don't want to go through the hassle. I've been there and done that! But that isn't a problem also! The worldwide web has a lot of websites that are doing free directory submission in exchange of link exchange or display of their web info.
See, getting your website indexed by search engines and increasing your traffic isn't impossible at all. You just need to have patience, time, dedication and commitment to have the work done. If you don't know which websites offer free directory submission, ask your tech-savvy friends or family members or else go online and do your homework!

To the love of my life: Happy, happy birthday to you! May this year be another amazing year to both our careers, family and the love we have for each other. All the memories we've shared will always be the living proof of our love and our commitment to grow old together. I am so proud and very happy to have you in my life. Love you dearest!
Now that winter is already knocking on our doors, it is now time to say goodbye to our flip-flops or any open shoes. This is the time of the year when we bring those boots out. For those who want to maintain a more casual look tennis shoes or sneaker is their best bet. All of us have our own criteria as to what shoes we would like to wear. Some people choose brand of shoes because of its elegance, durability, quality, functionality or comfort. For tennis shoes, I love Nike or Skechers but I am also eager to do more research about Supra shoes. I heard from a friend in California on how great this brand is. In just a short period of time, this up and coming brand of shoes has already established a name in the marketplace. For formal or work shoes, I choose shoes that are stylish, elegant and make me comfortable in walking regardless of how high the heels are.

I was talking to my brother last Sunday and he was asking me if I can look into going home by Christmas next year. I must admit that I wasn't thinking about going home at this time but my brother's thought of the family being together again on Christmas had changed my consideration. Hopefully, I will be able to go home by then. I would love to spend another Christmas at home, I really missed it a lot!

Many of us think that the safest place to be is our house, but how safe are you in your home? To add additional safety, many families are installing security system in the homes to protect them from strangers/intruders. Some are using test kits to check if there are any lead present after doing house renovation, repair or painting projects. Exposing your family to lead is very dangerous to their health, sometimes fatal. Lead test kits are very important so you can conduct your own test and know the result in seconds. The faster you know about the presence of lead in your house, the safer your family will be. These are just some of the things that everyone is willing to do for the safety of their family. Sometimes, cost doesn’t count much if the safety of your family is at stake. Just remember, be very careful at all times!
Life is always full of surprises. You will never know what will happen to you and your family in the future. For parents, the worst fear is to see their kids hurt or sick. As much as they can, they want their kids shielded from any possible harm. They also want to make sure that health-wise, their loved ones are covered just like the short term health insurance NC offered by NC Health Plans. Having health insurance can save you and your family from the falling into the pit hole if one of your family members is severely ill and need huge money for medication.
Whenever I buy something, the first thing I ask is the warranty coverage being offered. If insurance is offered in reasonable cost, I also get one for extra protection. For instance, when I buy my laptop, I bought a laptop insurance on top of the manufacturer warranty I just want to make sure that if something happened, my laptop is fully covered and I won't end up paying something that is of no use anymore. When you buy expensive gadgets, it is best to buy an insurance so you won't have a headache in case you need money to cover any replacement costs. Ipad, ipod and cellphone insurance coverage are also offered now by some company like the Worth Ave Group.

Charice Pempengco made the Filipinos proud again! In here debut appearance in Glee, she delivered another superb performance. While watching the show, I had goose bump especially when she sings "Listen". Not only she sings it with all her heart, the song is also perfect to show how beautiful her voice is. Going to stardom isn't easy for Charice, but all her efforts are paid off ! Now, she isn't only famous in the Philippines but all over the world. Kudos Charice!!!
Since I have things to do after work, I decided to go home straight instead of dropping by in the gym. Skipping my workout isn't a good choice but you have to do what you got to do. When I was closer to our neighborhood, the wind starts blowing and the sky was darker and the clouds are getting low. Sure enough, it didn’t take long until the rain started pouring. All cars on the road slow down including me because we can hardly see the road. I was in one of the busiest highway in the DFW metroplex so I was very happy when I see the exit sign to the road leading to our neighborhood.
Oh, I hate those pimples! Who doesn't anyway? Acne? That’s the worst!
I aim to be fit and slender again in few months. I know this venture isn't easy but I am determined to make it happen. I started my work out regime and diet a month ago and so far I already lost few pounds. I haven’t reached my target weight yet, so I am still on the go to find new workout and maybe incorporate it to the other workouts I am currently doing. I am completely aware that this battle won’t be easy. It will be a tough fight against my time and not eating the “yummy” food that aren’t good for my waste, but I will do it! For people who loose weight so fast, I envy you. You folks are so lucky! If you have an advice on how to lose weight fast, please share it here.

Don’t procrastinate! Whatever you can do today for your family, do it! For instance, if you haven’t bought a life insurance yet, then by all means get one. Purchasing a term life ins is a good way to make sure your family is taken care of and their life won’t be jeopardize when you’re gone. If you are the breadwinner in the family or if you are the only one taking a paycheck home, it will be a huge financial downfall if unfortunate things happened to you. I am sure you have seen a lot of worst scenarios when the breadwinner is gone. The family members are suffering financially amidst of the emotional pain they feel for losing their loved one. So before its too late, do something! You’ll never know when your time comes…
It never thought time comes that I will ever learn to drive. Learning how to drive was one of the big adjustments that I undergo when I set foot in the United States. It was truly a huge struggle couple with a lot of frustrations for both my husband and I. There are a lot of times when our driving lessons turned out into arguments. I get annoyed easily because he doesn’t have much patience and I feel like he was putting too much pressure on my shoulder to learn the technique quick. Parallel parking was the most difficult to learn and up to these days, I am still not confident with it.
Time goes by so fast and it's been 2 years now since I start driving on my own. Driving means a big deal for my personal and career growth. When I learned how to drive, my scope of looking for a better job widens. If asked my many on what is the advantage of being able to drive, I always give them this equation: DRIVING=FREEDOM!!!
For people who came from a country who rely mainly on public transportation, driving your own car isn’t seen as a necessity but a luxury to many. Owning a car is very expensive back home and most people don’t have the cash to pay upfront. Back then, car installment isn’t popular and is hard to get in my country.

Generally speaking, I can say that I am afraid of heights. I am perfectly okay when I fly no matter how long and bumpy the flight is but I hate rollercoaster rides, ferris wheel and any rides that will subject me to going up and down a track. After my first and last ferris wheel ride, I told myself I will never do it again. I also swear I will never ride a roller coaster but this isn't true anymore.
During our recent visit to the Six Flags of Texas, my hubby and kiddos somehow was able to trick and made me get on the Runaway Mountain ride. Since the ride is inside the mountain-like structure so I wasn't aware that it is a rollercoaster ride. I went through the line in great condition and comes out dizzy and light-headed. I didn't pass out or die (just an exaggeration) but no matter what happens I will never get on a rollercoaster again and I will always make sure I know what the ride going to be before hopping unto it.
Lesson learned but I must admit it was a great experience. I am still thankful to my hubby and kiddos for tricking me; otherwise, I will never get the chance to experience it. :-)

Every individual is unique. There is no doubt about it! Our individuality is important to make our world in balance. How we view life, our talents and skills, fashion/style or hobbys. Some people are more inclined to music, singing, dancing, outdoor activities, horse riding or equestrian, camping and many more is oftentimes show the clear image ouf our uniqueness.
Speaking of hobbys, I find horse riding very interesting. Yet, it is also one of the very expensive hobby/sport. If you are born and raised in a 3rd world country, you will know that equestrian is only for those who have money or investor. You need a nice and big place to house your horses, you will need money for your horses' vet or many for their food and other equestrian pharaphernalia like clothes, breeches, riding apparels and many more. It may still be true wherever you go but I think people in the 1st world countries, irregardless of your status in the society, have more opportunities to learn and enjoy it.

However, before laying out the details of your wedding, there is another important thing to do first. It is no other than getting engaged. You don't have to hold a grand engagement party. Some women prefers a more intimate, romantic and more surprising way of saying, "Will You Marry Me?". If you have the means, get your lady one of the beautiful diamond engagement rings in town. But remember, you don't need to jump into a huge debt just to get one. If you have the money, then buy one, if none then don't.
Just remember, to try your best to stay within your budget. Remember, marriage doesn't ends on your engagement and wedding day. It is a lifetime commitment and you don't want to carry over a big debt into your marriage life because you spend more than what you can during your engagement and wedding. Grand or simple, what matters is your love for each other and your commitment to stick with each other through thick and thin.

I think I need a new laptop with a higher memory for faster internet surfing, processing of data and watching videos/movies. My laptop isn't that old yet; in fact, it will turn only 2 in few months. However, my laptop is now slowly showing some wear and tear which is not very pleasing to the eyes.
Right now, my laptop is green in color with a silver keyboard. My next one I would prefer to have a metallic black including the keyboard because I observe that the silver color starts to peel off faster and soon my laptop will start looking ugly if the silver paint will peel off more if not completely.
The next time I will buy one, I am planning of getting a HP laptop. I guess I am done with Dell for now. I love their product except the very noisy sound once the laptop is on for a longer period of time and the paint starts peeling off sooner that I expect.
How about you? Any plan of getting your lappy anytime soon?

Leaving the Philippines for the second time was so hard for me. A lot of tears shed off 2 days before we flew and even until today. I had a "homesickness attack" and I don't know much how to handle it but cry. I appreciate my hubby's support, love and understanding especially at these times. I don't know what to do without him. I know it may take several weeks before I will get over my homesickness (maybe not..) but I hope that when I get back to work and becomes busy with my daily routine it will be lessen.
So long Philippines until we are back!

In my own point of view, I like the paper towel better. A single or two sheets of paper towel is already enough to dry your hand whereas if you are using a regular hand dryer it takes a minute or two to dry your hand completely. However, it will be a different story if I am using the newest hand dryer in the market that can dry hands in 10-15 seconds only. That is definitely great and maybe I will change my choice then. Who knows???
My friend informed me that jobs in administration are open in their company and she wants to apply for it since it is paid more. however, the people who work in that deparment make her thinks twice. She said that a lot of people from that different doesn't have good relationship towards each other which give tension to the whole deparment. As a friend, I advised her to really consider things before making decision because it isn't healthy to work in an environment like the prior.

To maintain, a healthy weight people are using different approaches. Some are doing a balance and healthy diet plus exercise on a regular basis; some are using the "easier way" so to speak which is using diet pills, undergoing cosmetic surgery or following a strict diet plan offered by different companies. With a lot of diet products and procedures advertised in the marketplace today; oftentime, people have difficulty in deciding which one is good for them. For example, it is getting difficult for people to decide which one is the best diet pills available nowadays due to several products endorsed to the consumers today.
