The Joy of Giving and Receiving

It is the time of giving and receiving gifts from our family, friends and loved ones. Buying the gift isn't easy. There are a lot of things that you need to consider such as your budget, time to roam around the mall or stores or what are the needs or wants of the person you are giving to. Sometimes, it is important to give a gift to someone you barely know than to someone you know your whole life. Some people are happy whether they like what they get or not, but there are also some who are so vocal and will tell you upfront that they have one already or the prefer another kind. In our family, every family member will answer few personal questions to better guide everyone on what to buy. Indeed, it helps us a lot save our time, money and energy. Shopping for someone whom you have a clue on what to buy is easier than just looking around the stores and just grab whatever great things your eyes can see. For me, I am a very easy person to please when it comes to gift. I believe it is the thought that counts the most than the price and the quantity of gift you receive. If you are going to give me laptop, household items, make up/hygiene stuff or even a lingerie, I will be very happy already. I love surprises, flowers and chocolate with almond. For this year, I am not finish yet with my Christmas shopping. How about you?

Body: Calcium Required

One thing you must know about me is I am not a milk lover. I can eat or drink anything that has milk on it but I can't drink milk by itself. Since I was a child, I never like milk that much. Back then, my parents especially my mother is always worried about me and try to convince me to drink milk as often as possible. I have no lactose intolerance, the milk makes me puke whenever my taste buds recognizes it - for whatever reason that I still don't know. My doctor has already advise me a chart that shows different food that has calcium and its how much calcium I can get by eating the food and the indicated portion. I was also told that I need to drink calcium supplements to make sure that I have enough calcium in my body for stronger bones and teeth and to avoid osteoporosis especially when I get older.

Your Future Starts Today

I have been thinking about going back to school, have my degree I earned back home evaluated and pursue a degree that I can use to advance my career. I finished my studies back home but since I don't want to teach for now so I decided to get it evaluated, look for another route and start from there. I have few courses/degrees that I consider to take but I would rather talk to a counselor first so I can be guided with my decision. I want to grow professionally and since my workplace is very good in helping employees grow, I think it is a great opportunity to grasp. Tuition reimbursement is also offered which is a huge plus especially with our present economy. Pursuing a career with IT is what some of my friends do because according to them it pays a lot of money. Well, no doubt about it. Today's companies, huge or small, operates using networks of computers with the help of internet. Just like any other machine, computer needs trouble shooting and you need a computer expert to do that. Demands for new scripts, software or hardware like the new G2 series rack mount computer of 1U clamshell LCD and keyboard console by Core Systems are also on the rise. As new demand in the market place arises, more and more careers and work will be made available to people. So the best thing that we can do is get ready for it. Finish your study, remember it's never too late to do something right.

Wake Up Sleepy Head

Oh, you won't believe this but I started my day today in the gym. Yes, after I dropped off the little guy at school I headed to the gym. This is the first time I do this since I always go there after work. The airport's gym is just outside the airport so I don't have to worry about the traffic to get to work. I only did couple routines to start off base on the time on hand and my stamina. I do aerobic and reverse aerobic walking on the elliptical and few sets in the ab equipment and lift some weights. My first morning gym workout lasted only for 45 minutes. I thought I will be tired afterward but I felt great and energized. I am trying to do it often, I just hope the weather will cooperate. It looks like temperature will soon drop to mid 40's. It that happens, it sure no fun to go out and drive to the gym very early. Excuses, excuses... I know!!! LOL

Secret No More

Lately, I have been receiving several women's clothing catalogs. I know I didn't subscribe to them so I was wondering how they get my name and our address. Of course, I understand that with the internet and the latest technology we have today, everything is possible. Anyway, one night, while eating our dinner, I happened to mention to my husband the catalogs that I received. I saw a grin on his face and he said, "Oh, I was thinking you would love to see more dresses for the upcoming party so I tried to subscribe to women's clothing catalogs and magazines". After hearing it, I burst to laughter. Sure, our families and close friends know he loves shopping clothes for me but I haven't thought that my dear husband will go that far. Well, he is always a man of surprises and I love it! ....Sweet!!!

Speak Up and Be Heard

I salute my husband for the effort he exerted in calling our utility companies and insurance providers to check if they have a great offer for us being a great customer. Of course, just like any man, he doesn't like being stuck on the phone while waiting to be transferred to the right department. I bet the waiting sucks, poor thing! Anyway, to make the long story short, he successfully negotiated the perfect deals for us for all of our utilities and insurances. It is indeed true that most companies are just waiting for their customer to call and make inquiries/demands. If you don't ask, they don't tell you! For instance, I've heard a lot of people telling me how they get a cheap car insurance. I asked them how did they come across such a great deal, they said they call and ask. So if you think you are paying too much for your utilities or insurance, pick up your phone and call your provider. It is also important to do your own search for comparison purposes. Trust me, most companies are willing to do whatever they can to keep their great customers. So, ask and make sure keeping their service is worthy! :-)

Holiday Buzz

If you want to avoid the holiday hassle and shopping crowd, today is the perfect time for you to start or finish your Christmas shopping! With the wide variety of the stuff that you need to buy, it might require you to hop from one store to another. To shorten your trips to the stores or to avoid going back & forth to the same store, I would suggest that you categorize your shopping list. For instance, group all the electronics, clothes, household stuff, accessories, shoes, garden and lawn products and so on. It is easy determine what do you need to look for when you get to the store and it will also minimize the chance of forgetting something and going back and forth to that same store. However, if you need any ATV/UTV parts and accessories (e.g. Yamaha, Honda, Polaris accessories, etc), you don't have to go anywhere. You can enjoy browsing a wide variety of choices while enjoying the comfort of your home. Thanks to the different online stores! Take note, almost everything is now available online, so you might want to check what the online stores can offer you before you head to the nearby stores. Good luck with your shopping!

I Can't Thank You Enough

It feels good to talk to my brother again and know that he is doing great already. After the adrenaline rush and the emotional roller coaster ride I had yesterday, it feels terrific knowing that he is now well and just resting to fully recover while waiting for the ship to comes back. I think you are confused as to what I am talking about. I am sorry but I am not in the mood to get into the details of what happened. All I can say is he was sick and I am just happy to let everyone know and our family back home (granting they will read this) that he is okay now. Indeed, God is great! I can't thank Him enough for looking into my brother's and our family's welfare and for keeping us safe always. To all our great friends and my terrific co-workers, thank you very much for all your messages and prayers. We appreciate it very much! Here's hoping and praying for his faster and full recovery!

In The Near Future Works

As soon as we get the carpet in the formal living room and dining room change to wood floor, we are going to look into changing the faucet fixtures. I love the granite counters in the kitchen and the marble counter tops in the bathrooms but we don't like the faucet fixtures that much. We want to change it to a more elegant design, more modern-contemporary look to go with the whole theme of the house. I know this entails a lot of work and of course money that's why we plan to do it one at a time. Hubby and I pretty much love everything in the house except for a few cosmetic details like the one I mentioned earlier. Oh, if time comes that we need to replace our sinks, I would get the Kohler kitchen sinks because of its quality, sleek design and elegance.

I Love Thee

I love my family so much that I am willing to do whatever I am capable of it to keep them happy, safe and secure. Since we are very far from each other, I always pray that all of us is always healthy and fit so that we can get together again in the future - share our experiences/stories in the foreign lands, talk about our dreams or just merely have a great bonding time on the beach. Oh, I miss those times so much!

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.

Hopefully Twas The Last Time

Arrggghh! For the first time in my life, I had few small pimples on my forehead. I was so worried and very uneasy about it. I'm so glad my agony didn't last for several weeks. Hubby told me to just leave the pimples alone and don't prick them to avoid infection. I am glad I listened to him because the pimples didn't multiply and it just go away by themselves.

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...

Until Next Summer

My tan are now slowly fading away. I really would like to keep my tan until next summer but I think it is impossible. Now that the weather is getting colder, I need to wear thicker and more layers of clothes and of course there's no more sunlight so my skin complexion will eventually become fairer again. Well, I could have use some tanning solution to keep my tan but I personally want to get my tan naturally. I understand that each of us has our own opinion and wants in life. If you want to keep your tan using tanning solutions, at least visit www.tanningbedlotion.com so you can have an idea on the tanning bed lotion that can give you the maximum tan! Always remember to seek for professional help if you think needed!

Have a Merry Christmas!

The weather is now getting colder and colder. Wherever you go at night, you see beautiful Christmas lights and lighted decors twinkling as if it is dancing with the cold breeze. From outside, you can see beautiful, lighted Christmas trees from the houses. You hear Christmas music playing in some stores or in the mall. Oh yes, it is Christmas once again! Let's have fun and be merry! It is the time of giving! Remember, it doesn't matter how expensive or less expensive your gift is, but its the thought that counts! I hope all of us will have fun-filled and a blessed Christmas! As early as today, I would like to greet all of you a Merry, Merry Christmas!!!

Burn More, Lose More

They said that if you want to lose weight faster, you got to burn more calories. Take less fatty food and make sure you exercise and eat healthy. I know these are easy said than done. I have been through that and it was tough but once you see the result, geez, it is very rewarding. It doesn't only give you a healthy body but it will also boost your confidence or self-esteem to the highest level. I have some friends who do the normal way of losing weight - balance diet and exercise; but I also known of some who tried the modern way like taking diet pills or fat burners like hydroxycut (read hydroxycut reviews). As what I've always said, don't try any product unless you read customer reviews or critics about it. Different products work different in each individual so don't be surprised if it works for your friend but not to you.

Detour If Needed

I know you must be tired already in following your rigid workout routines and strict diet. Who isn't? Sometimes, you can't help but think on doing the easy way out like taking diet pills or undergoing cosmetic surgeries. To some people these easy way of losing weight works but to some it doesn't. It is normal I will tell because every individual is unique and response differently to everything that your body encounters. Before you use any product, it is but very important to know something about it. The best way to gain knowledge about a product is to read customers reviews, comments or suggestions. For instance, if you are interested with alli diet pills, go online and read alli review. Remember, the best way to get ready on what tomorrow brings is to read all the signs & evidences.

It's Nothing But Your Choice

Whatever we do in our lives, I believe it is individual's choice. I believe that what we want to accomplish in our lives or who we want to be, is something that we can work on and try harder to realize. The road may not be easy but I believe no matter how hard you fall or how many times you fail there is always a rainbow after the rain. Life is full of choices to make so to speak - could it be planning on what degree you are going to pursue in college, where to reside, whether you are going to be drinking or smoking is a choice. Things can be easily purchased now due to hi-tech gadgets and easy accessibility. For instance, one doesn't need to go to the store to purchase clothes, shoes, electronics, liquor or even cigars. There is now a so-called online or internet stores just like internet cigar stores.

On Your Birthday


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!

Keeping Warm and Fashionable


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.

Remembering Christmas Back Home

It is almost half-way towards Christmas day! I am very excited and at the same time a little sad since this will be the 4th time that I won't be able to spend my Christmas in the Philippines. I really missed the way we celebrate the yuletide season back home. I missed listening to the Christmas songs that are continuously played in different radio stations all over the country. I missed the "real fun" and the joy of just being together with you loved ones on this very special day. It doesn't matter whether they are only having 1 or 2 food on the table, what matters is the quality of time spend on that night.

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!

Sleeps Happy

I was fixing the guest room upstairs and I realize that I love the mattress that we put there. It follows the contour of my body and leaves me a relaxing position. I guess my husband is right that we need to replace our mattress in the master bedroom. I will talk to hubby about it but not until I am sure that I will confirm that he is right. LOL. I am not being cheap here, trust me, we will eventually replace it but not until we are finish with our other project. I don't know yet what type of mattress to buy but will soon start searching so I have the time to weigh the pros and cons of each type.

Cold In North Texas

Is this the start of winter in North Texas? Maybe not, maybe yes. Well, you know Texas weather, nothing is constant, it keeps on changing. Looking at the weather forecast, this week seems to stay in the mid-60's and will slowly climb up to 70's on the weekend and who knows what next week will gonna be. Colder temperature is actually great as long as it isn't coupled with rain. I know rain is needed to keep the grass and plant around greener but too much rain is obviously too much. I am excited for the colder weather but not with ice or snowy-weather.

Acne Aftermath

Dealing with scars is one of the aftermath of having severe acne. Getting rid of those scars is a big challenge to many people. Yes, today's market offers variety of acne scar creams but to determine which acne scar creams works for you is a challenge. Most of the times, finding the right product that works for you involves trial and error method. To waste your time more, I think it is best to visit websites that showcases customer reviews about acne or acne scar creams and use the information that you will get to plan forward. From the customers reviews, you will be able to extract an idea on how the product work to some people and it gives an idea on how it possibly work for you.

Dez Bryant

I can't help but simply admired the quickness and the versatility of Dez Bryant. His 80-yard touchdown returned for the Dallas Cowboys against New York Giants on tonight's game is so mighty! This young wide receiver is slowly establishing and proving his worth to wear the # 88 jersey which was passed on to him from 2 Dallas Cowboys icons Drew Pearson and Michael Irvin. In days to come, we will be able to see if Dez Bryant will be able to hold his head high with the great expectations and ravaging pressure of wearing the # 88 jersey.

Family First


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!

Is Your Health Insurance Good Enough?


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.

Weekend, Here We Come!

Work has been pretty busy lately. My co-workers and I are always looking forward to our short vacation during weekends. Everyone can't wait to just relax and unwind away from our busy week at work. Tomorrow is Friday and it only means weekend is next. Our friends and us have already plan on what we will do this weekend. Bowling and friend-get-together are some of the activities that we already agreed to do so far. I am sure there will be last minute activities that we will eventually decide to do. I am so excited now! I will be able to see and bond with our friends again!

Secure Your Gadgets


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.

Does It Really Work?


A lot has been said, but are you not wondering which of these diet plans really work? I understand there are a lot of circumstances to consider before coming up with a conclusion which diet plan works for you and the rest of the consumers in the marketplace. However, I believe that diet alone is not enough to completely shed off the extra pound that you want to get rid of. It should be coupled always with a great workout regime.

Kudos Charice!


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!!!

Whatever It Takes

I attended a get together organized by a friend. While on my way to the patio, I overheard some of my friends talking about products to treat pimple or acne. One of our friends who have an acne problem has been soliciting ideas from the rest of the group with any advise on what she can do to possibly avoid pimples which, in her case, oftentimes result to acne. A lot of products have been mentioned like tea tree oil and other well-known acne treatment solution. That was the first time I heard about tea tree oil as acne treatment, so I decided to do my own research regarding the different uses for tea tree oil. I came across pretty interesting ideas and reviews about this product. For your own reference, visit teatreeoil.org.

Keep It Clean!


It is of utmost important that our body is FREE from all contaminants and other hazardous substances. It is necessary to have our body undergo a detoxification or cleansing on a regular basis. If this sounds so new to you, you can do your own research to find out the details. The internet has several available resources in this matter like colon cleansing reviews and many more. Also, eating healthy food and doing exercise regularly can also help a lot to ensure your body is in good condition. Stay healthy and fit my friends!

One Afternoon

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.

None of Those!


Oh, I hate those pimples! Who doesn't anyway? Acne? That’s the worst!
Yes, there are several acne solutions available in the market today but finding the right one to work for you isn’t easy. There are a lot of people who have tried several products before finally finding the right one for them. Having pimples or acne is truly a big hassle aside from the fact that it can be very expensive and time consuming.

Is There A Way To Lose Weight Fast?


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.

Busy As Bees

Living in the United States for a year and half makes me appreciate the slow pace of living we have back in the Philippines. Here, daily living is fast, busy and very routinize. During weekdays my life only revolves between taking our little guy to school and football practice, going to work, going home, sleep and then the cycle goes so on and so forth. Thanks God for the weekends! Hubby and I look forward to it is our time to see our friends and do fun activities together like food cookout, bowling or just hanging out at home or in our favorite bar/s. If we have family gathering, it also happens on the weekend because it is the only time of the week that most of us are free. Our days can be very busy indeed that's why if we have free time we make sure we make the most of it to either relax or enjoy time with our loved ones and dearest friends.

Man's Best Friend

If you have dogs or plan to buy one, it is best to have your dog undergo a dog training program. This helps you and your dog achieve a more quality time together. In this way, you don’t have to worry about coming home with your place trash because your dog has torn up everything. It also keeps you from having a dirty/smelly place because your dog is trained on how or when to dispose their waste. Things like this seems very simple but if your dog isn’t trained to behave good while at home or outside, then it could mean a headache and more stressful days for you. Just like your kids, they need utmost care too and training as well.

Trick or Treat Coming Soon!

Halloween is fast approaching, Now is the perfect time to start thinking of what you want to be for Halloween. Although I haven't made up my mind yet on what I want to be for the Halloween parties, but I am already starting to look around for some Halloween sexy costumes. I am considering of buying a pilot/flight attendant, pirate and oriental/geisha Halloween costumes. I have having hard time deciding on which of the 3 I want to be. I have to seek my hubby or friends' help to decide which costumes suit me better. How about you, any plan yet?

Will They Be Okay When You're Gone?


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…

Drive For Freedom


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.

I am 100% Committed!

Tax free weekend is here once again! To many of us, it means S-H-O-P-P-I-N-G!!! Since my family is done buying school supplies and some outfit for the kiddos, the very first thing in my shopping list now is a running shorts. Two weeks ago, I committed myself to workout everyday and I need a more comfortable tennis shoes since it is already 2 years old and it is a bit small now for me (as if I still grow,hahaha). I also need a couple of running shorts. If I have to run or jog outside, it is better to wear shorts since it is so hot in Texas right now. I already have ideas on what shoes and shorts to buy. I am just waiting for the weekend to come to buy it so that at least I will save a few bucks from the tax. How are you, is your shopping list already finalized? Be safe and have fun shopping!!!

Style and Quality In One

Who wouldn't love to have a pair or more of ugg boots? I sure would love to have one. Aside from having an established name in the market, the quality and style is also undoubtedly fabulous. My friend just got one and I should say that it was a money well spent especially if you love their line of boots. She got a good deal on it so it's a big plus factor. I was thinking of getting one too, but I have to wait for the time to come when it is either on 50% or more off. LOL. Yes, they are definitely great but I think I have more important things to spend my money for now. I mean things that somehow considered basic necessities. But someday, I would like to have one... :-)

Do You Know Who To Call?

If you hit the road for a long trip, it is always good to know that you are guaranteed to have someone to help you if you need assistance. There are a lot of roadside assistance club that are now extending help to all drivers to respond and keep everyone safer in times of emergencies. Knowing that there are people you can count on when emergency arises while you are on the road, makes you feel more comfortable, at ease and safe. So, do you know who to call if you need road assistance while on your trip? Find out who you can rely on when you need help. For RV towing, Good Sam RV Emergency Road Service is one of them!

Be Ready for Rain Season

I know we are still in the midst of super hot weather but soon fall will come and rain may start pouring from the sky. If your work or hobby sets you to be outside often, you will definitely need a rain boots. Maybe in a couple of days a regular shoes will do but I believe it is more comfortable if you are wearing a rain boots. If you like gardening or if you need to mow your yard during rainy season, you will be better off with rain boots to protect your feet and to keep it dry. Before the season starts, now is the time to start looking for rain boots and you will still be able to find a good deal.

It's Up To You

Everyone is different and our differences make us unique individual. I hate rollercoaster rides and heights but I know a lot of people loves it and enjoy themselves while riding it. I don't like to smoke but I know some do. Smoking or drinking is a choice. I mean you have the option not to indulge with it but if you would to do it then it is mainly up to you. These days, there are several companies who are trying to make new product to drink and to smoke. If you like cigar, Famous Smoke Shop has it! They sell wide variety of cigar that you can choose from. Check out Famous-Smoke.com to see the complete lists of cigar for sell. Just remember the very famous line as a government warning in cigarette packs: Smoking is dangerous to your health. So, be very cautious all the time.

Nothing Wrong To Think Ahead

Not very long ago, my friend told me that she dreams to own a log house someday. She said that when she and her husband retire, they would prefer to live out of the city and build a log house and enjoy the cold and icy winter in the mountain. She had showed me the layout she wants and the furniture she wants to use for her log house. She said part of the house will be decorated modern-contemporary but the rest she will use rustic furniture to come up the real log house ambience. But now that their retirement is still far away, she still prefers enjoying the busy city life and the modern home that they currently live. What about your dream house and your retirement? Have you plan about it already?

I Can Do It

The weekend is my time to recharge my energy and to unwind from the very busy days at work and weekdays life. Now, that I get very serious in losing the extra weight I gained for the few years of staying in the US, my daily schedule is even getting busier. After work, no matter how tired and busy I am, I tried to condition and sometimes forced myself to drop by in the gym. Since the gym is free from work, all I have to do is take my lazy ass there and work out. No membership fee to worry about and the place is just equipped with very new and nice work out equipment and facilities. Plus we get paid equivalent to a day pay just to sweat our fats out.

Could This Be The End?

Honestly, I am not already happy as to how my laptop works. Aside from the silver color now start peeling off; the fan is also getting noiser and noiser. I also observed that my laptop is working slower than before. Of course, I am very much disappointed with what is going on with it since this is only 2 years old. I am always good in taking care of my stuff but somehow I tend to question myself if I did take care of this in as much as I take care my other belongings. How I wish I have a 3 year laptop warranty so I can just call in the company and ask them to replace it because it didn't work the way they said it will. Too sad though, this company only offers 1 year warranty and I haven't bought an extra insurance for more years of coverage. Next time I'll buy a laptop, I will choose the jet black color and get an extended warranty to be safe. How about you, how long does your laptop live from date purchase?

Shield It From Cold

If you leave in places where you get a tremendous amount of snow, it is recommended to cover your furniture during winter to avoid damage and preserve its great condition. If you are not certain where to buy one, here's an idea. Stores in your area and online are now selling patio furniture covers of different styles/designs to fit with whatever theme you have in your backdyard. If I am not wrong, the best time to get patio furniture covers is at the end of summer. Stores usually give huge discount or sale to get rid of their remaining stocks. You can also look for coupons to get an even better deal. Tax free weekend is approaching so you might as well go around and look for one. Not paying tax is a great savings afterall!

It Wasn't That Bad At All


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. :-)

If NC Is Your Next Destination

If you are looking to move to North Carolina especially in the Outer Banks area, check out TheDeanAgency.com. Throught the website, you will be able to search for Outer Banks homes available in the area. You can also take a peek as to list of foreclosures, short sales and new listings available in the Outer Banks, NC market these days. So before flying there and contacting your agent, at least you can do your own search and perhaps have an idea on what to expect for most houses in the area. For me, it is always good to do our own search before talking to your agent so that you aren't empty handed with information. Good luck on your move and I am sure you will have a lot of fun after the packing and unpacking stage. LOL

You are invited to a party which takes place in few days. Definitely, you want to look at your best, who isn't? You are dying to wear your beautiful black dress but you put on some weight. Oh no!

You, Me and the World


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.

Little Token

Hubby has to work late tonight. So after running some errands after I get off work, I decided to cook a good dinner for him. I ended up cooking chicken wings with garlic & ginger sauce and steam broccoli to go with it. It was good that I already took the wings from the freezer yesterday so it was thawed when I get home. I got home a little late already so I was still cooking when hubby gets home. As always, he patiently wait until I am done. When the food is ready, he decided to make a chocolate-banana smoothie for me. I think that was so sweet of him and I was touched of course. Aaaahhhh.... LOL

Saying, I Do

We all have our own dream wedding. Some prefer to have an intimate wedding with only immediate family members and close friends present while others want to have a grand wedding with a large number of guests coming to witness the union. With the wedding location, some people wants garden, beach, church, under the sea or hot air balloon wedding. To some couple, the more unusual the wedding theme is the more fun, memorable and exciting it gets.

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 Believe...

I have been very busy lately. There are a lot of family commitment and friends' activities that I need to attend to if I am not at work. I do feel stressed and pressured sometimes. I feel like my weekend, which is my off from work, is not enough to finish all the things that are in line to be done. I feel like I have so many things to accomplish in a short period of time. Is it tiring? Of course, but at the end of the day it feels great seeing your loved ones happy. I don't mind sacrificing my time if it makes my family happy, feel loved and valued. They do the same to me so I will be too insensitive to deprive them of their happiness. After all life is just a cycle. I always believe in the golden rule and good karma. Do good to others and good things will happen to you.

Comfy Lifestyle

Should we thank the different inventors and electronic companies for coming up with different technologies that makes our day to day living easier? hmmmmpppp... I think we do. Today, if we need a copy of a note or information that we find in the internet, all we have to do is click on a print button and the printer will produce an exact copy of it. No need for you to handwrite all information. You save your time in writing and use it in a more efficient way. Also, when you go to store, store associates can use their barcode scanner to check if they have a stock of something that you are looking for instead of digging the boxes in the warehouse/stock room. When you to the cashier, checking out is easier and faster by the use of a barcode scanner. When you are away on a vacation, your home is safer and guarded using your security camera or alarm system. You see, these are just few of the examples of the how technology shape our lives into a more comfortable living.

Luck You

Lossing weight is easier said than done. I bet a lot of us will agree to it, right? No matter what we do, it seems like shedding off some of those unwanted fats seem harder and take forever than expected. Watching those slim pills, slim workouts or diet meal plans can somehow give us the impression that lossing weight is easy but it is actually not. Lucky to those who have high metabolism, having a slimmer body isn't that much of a big dream for them like me and the rest of you outthere. I've heard about of diet plans that consumers claim effective but I haven't heard much of hcg diet recipes. I read it online and now I am planning to do more research about it so I will know if this is something beneficial for me and perhaps for you.

Stay Energized!

In busy days like this, it is important to take body supplement to keep your energy going and keep yourself from getting too tired easily and sickly. Vitamins can help your body's normal growth and for it to function properly. In a demanding environment like what we normally dwell on everyday, we easily lose our energy and focus but having the right body supplement can help you stay in track. Searching for the best multivitamin can be tricky at times but once you find the right one for you. You can talk to your doctor if you need need help in deciding which multivitamin will be good for you.

Food Trip

I had to thoroughly clean the kitchen counters and sinks tonight after it was showered with spill from the food that I cooked. I was craving for dried fish and sardines when I get home from work so I decided to cook one. Of course, I have to cook brown rice since I already run out of it. Typical Filipinos know that a "Filipino meal" won't be complete without the rice. I thought we already run out of the cleaning stuff for the granite counters but I was happy to know that hubby just bought some more the other day. Cleaning sinks and counter tops was made easy.

Day After the Holiday

The holiday is over and now I am back to work. After the long weekend, I feel a bit lazy to go back to my daily weekday routine. I am a night person so I hate waking up early in the morning which I have to do to be able to prepare myself for work. Day 1 is already very busy at work and I expect to be always this way till summer ends. Believe it or now but I like the busy days because it makes my day go by fast. Aside from the fact that busy days means good business and job security.

Spice Up the Road

If Ferrari car is expensive, I am sure that having it fix, if needed, will cost you a lot also. Honestly, I have no idea how expensive ferrari parts are but on what a friend of ours told it, it is really very pricey. The cost of a ferrari car is already a beautiful house in most states including Texas. Now, I am wondering what a ferrari part is equivalent to? Anyway, for more details about ferrari parts, click the latter underlined words.

The Window to the World


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?

Safety First

I can't stress enough how important it is to have a your properties covered with the right insurance. It will not only safeguard yours and your family's future; it will also bring peace into your mind especially in times you are away from home. For example, during our 3-week vacation, hubby and I feel comfortable to leave our house considering that we have everything taken cared of in case something happens to it (God forbid) while we are gone. Having a good homeowners insurance coverage will help you from taking out a huge amount of money from your pocket in case of fire, tornado, hurricane or flash floods damaged. So, if you haven't had one yet, try to call around for the best quote that you can get. Remember, it is better to be prepared that be regretful at the end for not doing something...

Till Then Guys...

Whether we like it or not, our (hubby & I) summer vacation in the Philippines is now over. We had a blast and brought back great memories that we will forever treasure in our hearts until we see our family again.

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!

Are You Ready for Your 2010 Summer Getaway?


Summer is here once again. Most students are now on summer break and most family are now busy finalizing if not deciding on where to go for their vacation. Deciding which place to go is sometimes tough depending on whether the whole family will come up to a unified decision. For us, Philippines is our summer destination this year. Hubby and I come up with a unified decision so it was a very easy decision for us. Some of our friends plan to go to Canada, Florida, Missouri, California, Mexico and Puerto Rico. By the way, if Branson, Missouri is your summer destination this year then try to look for Branson vacation packages to be able to save some money. After all, going on vacation doesn't mean getting broke. Your wonderful memories and experiences from your vacation should be the one cherished after your vacation and not a "terrible headache" because you totally empty out your pocket.

Which is Which?

With several acne treatments available in the market today, it is often difficult to determine which one is best for you. The fact that every acne product reacts in various ways to every individual makes it even more a challenge to know the best acne treatments for you. Seeking professional help makes your search easier, faster and less headache. Once you tried a product and it doesn't work the ways promised then don't waste your time and try another one until you find the one suits for you. If the search takes longer than expected, just try and try till you find it.

Are You Ready for Summer Fun?

Now that summer is just around the corner, everyone is even more serious in getting back in shape for their bikini and swimming trunks. People are getting very rigid with their diet and exercise but some are also going to the easy route through diet pills and cosmetic surgery. Personally, I am on my own quest for lossing some extra pounds for our upcoming vacation. I admit it is not easy working full-time and finding time doing a daily workout regime. However, once you see the result, it is very fulfilling and rewarding. For those who are in the same shoe with me, good luck! Just remember to balance everything. If you opted to use diet pills, please do your research before taking anything. There are a lot of diet pill review available in the internet today. So read and ask your doctor if necessary. Loss weight healthy! Aja!

On Search Soon

I maybe not vain at all with facial products but I think it is time for me to consider using other product aside from soap. Face cream, facial cleanser, facial scrub and other facial products are some that I would like to consider using. I think it is the best time for me to start taking good care of my face especially that I am not getting any younger. In the next few days, I will be on my search for the best face cream and other facial products. I am not in a hurry though. I want to make sure that the product that I am going to apply in my face is proven safe by many and my doctor.

Great Savings for Moms

Since it's been a while since I checked my emails, so that is the first thing I did today when I arrived home from work. I was surprised to see a lot of emails from different stores regarding their upcoming Mother Day sale. The said sale covers electronics, purses, jewelry, Designer Dresses, garden and many more. Huge discounts of up to 50-75% are offered by most stores. Check out your nearest stores and malls for the great savings that is waiting for you.... Be there when Sunday comes!

Live Healthy, Live Long!

People have different ways of lossing or maintaining weight. Some indulge in-depth exercise regime, strict food diet, use diet pills, fat burners or the easiest way through cosmetic surgery. Every body is unique and reacts differently to every weight loss regime; so, what works for you may not work for everyone. But for most people, exercise and healthy food diet helps them a lot to get rid of those unwanted weight and fats and maintain their body onwards. How about you? What is your secret towards achieving the weight you have dreamed about?

Hand Dryer or Paper Towel?

When you are in a public restroom, which one you would like better to use in drying your hand? A hand dryer or paper towel? I know that both hand dryers and paper towel have their own advantages and disadvantages. Also, everyone of us has our own opinion and personal preferences to towards them.

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???

Truly A Gem!

I love my job so much and I will do my best to keep it. Aside from I have one of the best employeers in the DFW area; my co-workers are also wonderful. We are like family and everyone gets along well. Everyone is also doing their best to do their job well so it makes the operation very smooth and everyone's work easier. Base on personal experience, it is very seldom to find a great workplace and beautiful people to work with, who treats everyone as family, that's why I am forever grateful to find this job.

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.

Notice to Get Covered

Today, I received another letter from an insurance company offering the different types of insurance plans that they offer. The letter shows a rate comparison among the different leading insurance companies and theirs. To get a maximum savings they recommend to consolidate all our insurances under their company. For example, use their plans for our mortgage, vehicle, medical and life insurance. They said that they offer the lowest and comprehensive life insurance rates. The offer was very enticing but as of now, we are still very happy with our insurance providers so we opted to stay with them. However, we will always put them in mind for future use.

Looking Ahead

As we grow older, we are more prone to developing wrinkles in our face, forehead and other parts of our body. Wrinkle creams is one of the common and least expensive ways of treating wrinkles. However, with a lot of wrinkle cream products in the market today, it is often difficult to determine which one is best for you. For consumers who wants to try products on their own, they tend to search and read consumer reviews for their reference. The World wide web makes those pieces of information available and handy to everyone wherever you are in the world. For instance, if you are one of those who wants to know more information about prevera wrinkle cream; you are only a click away from prevera review. Nevertheless, please know that the best resource to determine which wrikle treatment is best for you is your doctor. Consult your doctor if you have doubts about the products that you are using.

Are You Ready for Your Summer?

Now that our summer vacation is getting nearer, I am even more determined to loose few more pounds to get ready for our beach time. Just like anyone else, getting rid of some extra pounds isn't easy at all. It entails a lot of patience, hardwork, discipline and determination. Doing daily exercise and eating healthy food helps me a lot. I tried to stay more active as much as possible. Since my work requires sitting down for technically the whole shift, I tried to go for a run, jog or walk early morning and in the afternoon. I also try to do some flexibility and muscle strengthening exercise of at least 30 minutes at night.

One of my friends told me that taking diet pills along with exercise and eating healthy food has help here so much to loose weight. Personally, I am doubtful to take diet pills. If I will do it, I will make sure that I am equipped with much knowledge. If you are on the same page as me, click here to learn more.

Flowers' Delight

Finally, I was able to start planting flowers in our front yard. I have been planning to start gardening last month but didn't do it until last weekend due to our very busy schedule. Today, when I arrived home from work, I was so amazed just looking at the beautiful flowers that greeted me as I get out of the car. I do love flowers so much! Just looking at them gives a special joy in my heart. In the days to come, I am looking forward to planting more flowers and maybe having vegetable garden in our backyard. It seems like my spring and summer will be so much fun!!!

Yard Work

It is spring once again and this is the perfect time to start doing some yard works either doing vegetable and flower gardening or just adding some accessories to your yard like a fountain, pond pumps or pool if you want to launch a much bigger and bolder project.
I will admit that our front yard nor the backyard is not the most beautiful one in the neighborhood. But thanks to my hubby's hardwork, our grass is kept well-manicured making it look appealing even with the absense of some flowers. We already started thinking on cosmetic works that we need to do to beautify our front yard and maybe the backyard will follow.

Weight Loss Talk

If you are born lean body structure, then good for you! You are one of the lucky people who doesn't have to worry about lossing weight. But if you are struggling with your weight all your life, hey, don't be discourage! This is not the end of the world yet! Just always remember that you are not alone in this battle. There are millions maybe billions of people around the world who are in the same shoes.

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.

Wedding Bells

Of course, I have my own dream wedding! Who doesn't? Until now, my dream wedding is still a dream wedding since it didn't happened yet. Yes, I am married but it was just a very simple civil wedding attended by the family. There was no fancy wedding cake, no grand reception, no much wedding accessories like personalized wedding napkin or fancy wedding decorations. Don't get me wrong here. I didn't regret that I get married in that way. It was my choice actually. I was just being practical. I mean, I was only thinking of the long-term financial aspect of my own family. I just believe that I don't need to spend thousands of dollars just to get what I really wanted. Hubby and I both agreed that we don't want to bring a debt to our marriage from our marriage expenses. But hey, everyone is different. This is only my point of view; yours maybe different and no matter what it is, rest assured that you have my most respect.

Life's Much Easier

People in the retail industry can surely appreciate the importance of having a barcode scanners in the store. Without barcode scanner, it will be very tasky for the cashiers to input those barcodes one by one in the computer so that the item and the price will be identified. Can you imagine how tedious and lengthy the work will be? I am sure, there will be longer waiting time for customer before they get checked out! So thanks be to the invention of barcode scanners; both the retailers and the customers lives are now very easy. Shopping can't be more easier and funnier than this!

Are You Ready for Texas Summer?

Texas is getting warm up already after the long wintry weather. We are now climbing up to 80's and it is now getting warmer inside the house if the AC or fan is not on. So, in preparation for the upcoming hot Texas summer, hubby and I decided that we are going to buy fans for the kids and the guest rooms. Those rooms are the only rooms in the house that doesn't come with ceiling fans when we purchased it from the builder. The good thing is, it is already wired and ready for the ceiling fans so we can always put one whenever we want to. This fan will surely help us not lower down the temperature much in the whole house during summer; thereby, saving some bucks in our electricity bill.

Life always bring surprises to us. Opportunities come our ways in way that we least expect. Trials and problems come our way in times that we are least prepared. That is why it is very important that we are always ready for whatever good or bad things that come our way. For me, one of the MUST thing to do is to have our family covered in case something happen to us, God forbid. This is the reason why I encourage everyone I know to get insurance. Nowadays, it is not very difficult to look for a life insurance that fits your lifestyle. There are a lot of online life insurance quote that are available today so it is not difficult for you to get one if you are really interested. Well, don't for tomorrow if you can get one today.

In the state of Texas, if you drive without insurance coverage you will get penalized if caught. Drivers are require to have at least liability insurance. I know insurance can be very expensive that is why there are a lot of people who thought they can't afford one. Yes, it might be true but if you are deligent enough and look around for auto insurance quote from different insurance providers, I am sure that you will be able to find one that suits your needs and budget. Have yourself covered for the benefits of yourself and for the other drivers/passengers in the road.

Acne-free Skin

Since then, the marketplace has been bombarded with several acne products that it is even difficult to determine which of them is advertising the truth. A lot of them has been claiming that they are the best acne treatment but customers had proven it otherwise. Considering that every individual's skin is unique, so which one are you going to believe: what the product advertise or the consumers review? The answer to the prior question varies. It depends to who you are asking that question. For example, some people acne product like accutane maybe helpful to them because it works the way they want but to some their purchase is a big mistake because it turned out the other way around.

Information on the Web

If you want an online resource of thermogenic fat burners reviews, then visit thermogenicfatburners.org. The latter ranked and reviewed every Thermogenic Fat Burner using the following criteria: (a) Ability to help people lose fat fast; (b) Utilize high-quality ingredients; (c) highly recommended by consumers; and (d) reasonable price. Using those criteria, the reviews that this website provides should be reliable and it includes consumers voice which is I think is a plus. Do you share the same thought? The answer lies in you. If I were you, I would consider what you have read and what your gut feeling is telling you. Base on my personal experience, gut feeling is seldom wrong...

Pain Go Away

It has been several days now that I have been experiencing a very distracting and annoying pain in my right hips and ankle. I think I have overstretched some of my muscles when I started doing yoga. I believe I didn't do the correct warm up and I shocked my muscles to it. At first, I thought that I had a joint pain due to the extreme cold weather that we had. Back in college, I still remember that I had pain every time I am in an airconditioned room for a long time. So I think it maybe cold related muscle pain. Anyway, if this will not stop until next week then I guess it is best to see a chiropractor. Hubby said that a chiropractor is the best person to talk to about my situation. Well, I really can't attest to it since all I know is, we always to a "manghihilot" in the Philippines whenever we have sprain or unexplainable muscle pain.

Wanting to Be Acne Free?

Getting the right treatment for your acne can be tricky sometimes. It is like finding a needle in a pile of hay since due to the number of acne products available in the market today. Another catch is, some acne medicine will only make the skin dry out but don't take care of the source of the acne and the acne will eventually come back again. That would be absolutely annoying and frustrating. Of course, who don't want to have an acne free face? All of us, right? So if your acne medicine seems like not working the way it should be, I guess it is already time for you to find a replacement. Jump unto your computer and search for a website that contains different reviews for acne treatment products. Remember, honest customer reviews are better than the most expensive and untested product advertisement.

It Won't Be Long

Eight more weeks to go and I will be back in my home country again! Yes, it's been a long 3 years and I had missed a lot already. I miss the food, my friends and of course my dearest family back home. Internet and telephone give us the chance to communicate on a regular basis but nothing compares when you see and talk to them in person. I guess, it is really true that no matter where you go, you will always find your way back home. I love Texas but I love PI more. I lived there for 23 years so it is difficult to get rid of the memories I had back home either it is good or bad. Of course, I am always grateful to be given the chance to be with my beloved husband in the US and savor the time that we have spent together.

Looking Back

Talking about cigars, I always remember how my great grandfather told me about how he started and stopped smoking cigar. He said that he really doesn't like it at first but since they are always out in the cold at night so he started to stick with it. He said it helps him stay awake and drive away mosquitoes and bugs at night. Yes, I heard you. It sounds funny but maybe it's true. I can't justify it myself since I haven't been out in the rice field or meadows at night. My great grandparents ricefields were far from their house that is why he and the people he paid to help him in the fields have to stay in a small house or barn during planting and harvesting or anytime they have to do something in the fields. So they said at the middle of the night they gathered around a bonfire and have some cigars while sharing their individual stories. My great grandfather then stop smoking when my beloved great grandmother asked him to stop. He said my great grandmother's never-ending support and love had made him stop after smoking for 40 years. Isn't it sweet? Love, oh, love!

Hubby's New Entertainment

Hubby finally found the HDTV that he wants. After visiting several stores and spending so many hours searching for it, we are finally done. However, before he found the TV that we have right now we initially purchased a plasma HDTV. Unfortunately, it doesn't work for us since our game room has many windows so we decided to return it and bought HDTV LCD instead. I am sure many of us know that plasma won't work well in a well-lit room since too much light create so much glare. Putting up curtains will minimize the glare but it will also make the room dark which we don't like. So our option is putting blinds in all windows except the decorative window directly on top of the front door. Now, hubby is getting ready to order the blinds for the windows in the second floor of the house. The LCD TV doesn't have a problem with too much light but the blinds will give more privacy so it is still needed.
