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!

Trick or Treat 2010

Trick or treat? How was yours? Ours was a night filled with so much fun and lots of sweets! I was walking around the neighborhood following our little guy in ninja outfit! I thought there were only few kids trick or treating because they had school the following day but I was absolutely wrong because there was a huge number of kids with their parents roaming around the neighborhood that night. Thanks to our neighbors who made the little one happy by giving them treats like candies, chocolates, puzzles, etc. At the end of the night, our little guy was able to take home a basket-full of candies.

Here's the evidence...

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.

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, 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.

Mosaic Tiles comes in glass, aluminum, steel, cooper and metal tile. So whether you want a traditional, contemporary or modern kitchen then mosaic tiles have something for you. Moreover, if you are not selling your house but just want to improve or renovate your kitchen, this is also a good information for you to consider. Visit their website today and see the beautiful mosaic tiles that I am talking about.

If You Love Them, Get Them Covered

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. No one knows what a new day brings....

Insured for Less

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.

Pimples to Acne?


There are different types of acne and it is recommended that you know what type you have so you will know what treatment or product to use. Nodular acne is one of the types of acne that most of us tend to suffer. It consists of larger pimples that can be as large as a pencil erasers; it is very painful and could lasts for months. For those who are used to popping their pimples, it will be a big mistake to do it with this type of pimple because it will even worsen the condition and could prolong the healing process. You see, it is very important to be more knowledgeable in this type of acne because it will keep you from suffering it for a long time. For more information about nodular acne treatment and prevention, visit acnenodular.net today!

Exposed Acne Treatment

Acne can be one of the common problem especially during adolescense and with those that have very sensitive skin. Several products and treatments are now available in the market which makes it difficult sometimes to determine which one is good for you.

Cooling and Heating

Our friend told us that he needs his HVAC filter changed. He said it has been few months since the last time he did it. Upon hearing him, we also realized that we haven't changed ours yet since we moved in to our house mid of last year. I talked to hubby and he said that his friend who is HVAC engineer told him that HAVC filter should be changed every month if possible so it will function fully. I think it is just reasonable to do it every month since it is not expensive at all. A clean filter helps the furnace function efficiently; thereby, saving money for heating and cooling.

Eczema: What Do You Know About It?

People who have very sensitive skin are prone to different kind of skin diseases like acne, pimples and eczema. I think pimple and acne are the most common and often seen by people but not eczema although there could be millions of people around the globe who are suffering from this. Now, what is eczema? According to wikipedia.org, it is a disease in a form of dermatitis, or inflammation of the epidermis. On the other hand, health.uab.edu even simplified this definition which goes; a skin disorder that is characterized by itching, scaling, thickening of the skin, and is usually located on the face, elbows, knees, and arms. Just like any other skin disorder, there are already a lot of products available in the market that can cure eczema but just like the rest not all of it works for an individual. What might work for you may not work for me. So to see more a detailed eczema pictures and to know more about its type and treatments, go to eczema.com. Who knows you may find the information that will be beneficial to you and your condition.

Nevertheless, don't loose hope nor get discouraged. There are serveral acne solutions that are available in the market today.

Energy Booster Is What I Need

My doctor told me that I have to start taking vitamins especially that I am now getting older. I think he is right. I think I do need a supplement especially that I am busy with work and at home. I think the weather is also one of the contributing factor why I feel so tired lately especially in the morning. I also have trouble sleeping early at night so vitamins that will help me relax at night and active during daytime is needed. But let us see if I will still feel the same way during summer. You may say this is a stupid excuse but I think my difficulty in waking up early morning is due to the extreme cold especially when temperature was in single digit. Well, spring is approaching and before we know it summer will be here so let us see if it helps me getting back to my daily early morning routine before. Wish me luck guys...

Friday Dine Out

My co-workers and our big bosses went out yesterday for lunch at Macaroni Grill. It was a birthday celebration for one of our co-workers. The restaurant is just outside the airport so it didn't take us long to get there. If you love Italian and seafood then the restaurant is for you.

Anyway, we stayed there for more or less 2 hours and a half. There were around 30 people in the entourage so it took a while for our food to be available plus the server have waited so long to serve the bread. I think everyone was starving when we started eating.

Well, if you ask me of my overall experience in that restaurant, it was good but it could be better I believe. Anyway, after lunch we are allowed to go home since it only few minutes till work hour is over. Although, I am familiar with the area but I still opted to use my gps on the way home so I will have a guide on how to go to the freeway. My gps has always been my buddy especially when I am on the road away from home.

Cheap Entertainment

Hubby was offered a ping pong table by one of our friends. They want to sell it since they want to buy a billiard table and they have no enough space for both. The ping pong table is in a very good condition; it is only a few months old and the price that they want to sell it is very reasonable. Out of curiosity, hubby checked prices for brand new and pre-owned ping pong tables and their selling price is really great. Since, we will be spending pretty good amount of money for our upcoming vacation so we decided to pass the offer to our other friend and sure they gladly buy it. It was indeed a good steal and it is a great relief knowing how our friends take good care of it.

Great Buy

I went to a store in our place to look for a black purse. Since the purse section is next to the wallets and small bags so I decided to drop by and check what was available. Guess what, I didn't find a wallet but instead I find very nice digital cameras casing in a very good price. Without hesitation, I decided to buy one. It was originally priced at $15.00 and I got it for $1.99. At first, I can't believe how cheap it but the receipt says so. The new casing fits well with my digital camera and I just love it. I got compliments from my friends who saw it. I guess, it was money well spend.

I can't stress enough how important it is to have antivirus software installed in your computer. It will safeguard all your stored files and your computer’s hardware from loss/corruption. Your computer is not safe in the web. There are a lot of websites that have viruses which can possibly infect your computer. I know this is not new to most of us. In fact, there are few social networking websites that I opted not to visit due to several virus pop-ups.

But hey, don’t just buy any kind of antivirus software. You have to make sure you have a reliable and the latest antivirus and antispyware engine that can protect your computer from email-borne, malware and spyware threats.

Stress and Your Body

In my previous post, I have talked about how stress can hasten aging process and cause wrinkles. It is scary, isn't it? In my opinion, stress is always present but it is up to you on how you handle the situation to lessen up the impact it will have to your beauty and skin. Remember that as we grow old, our body may not function as good as it is when you were younger. For example, we may already need a stimulant for the growth of skin cells. Guys, not all skin products advertised will allow the grow of the right kind of skin cells. Argireline, otherwise known as Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 can help you. However, just like any other products, do a thorough research first or ask your doctor if this is something good for you.

Read Product Reviews Before Spending Your Green

If you are using lipozene or plan to order one, I guess you have to read these lipozene reviews at toprateddietpills.com. Reading these reviews are very important because it will not only give you the idea on how lipozene works to its users, it will also help you visualize if this is the product that will suit your needs. Just like any product in the market, make sure you do your homework before buying one. Sometimes, advertisement can be so tricky that most of the times people are misled. So be a wise buyer and again do your homework before buying anything out in the market.

Are You Back in Your Routine Yet?


After the long holidays, now is the perfect time to start losing those unwanted fats that you've gained. If you were careful with the food you ate; thereby, not gaining weight then you are lucky. If you did then you have to start your butt kicking now. Going back to your exercise regime maybe difficult at the start but if you are determined to get back in shape I am sure you can do it. Each individual is different. A weight loss program that works for your friend may not work for you so if the routine that you are into is not working, feel free to change it. Some women are going through strict diet, use pills or female fat burners to enhance their loss of weights. Though the latter help some women but as for me the best way to loose weight is exercise and eating healthy food. How about you? What is your secret in keeping up or losing weight?

Level Up Your SEO Stats

If your website or blog is new, your first target is getting more traffic by submitting your URL to the different web directories. Doing it can be very dragging and taxing if you aren't well equipped with the knowledge on how to do it. Hiring companies or someone to do it for you can cost a lot. So, using a good seo software in submitting your URL will be a big help but the problem is those software can be very expensive. Well, how about if it is free? It sounds good to be true but there are some websites that offer it for free. Just be careful since freebies sometimes tricky. By the way, a friend say freeseosoftware.com has a good information, consider checking the website. Who knows it will be of great help to you.

Living Healthy Can Be an Uphill Battle

Are you the type of person who takes good care of his body? Exercise, eating healthy food and getting enough hours of sleep are ways that you need to practice to keep your body physical fit and healthy. I know it is tough at the start but once you get into your rhythm then everything will fall into place.

With a lot of resources available online, people has now easy access to information about living healthy and active. For instance, if you want information about colon cleansing and weight loss, you just have to type in the key words and lists of different websites that contain those information will be available. Or if you need information as to what exercise will fit your body and needs, internet is also your partner.

Many workplaces encourage their employees to live a healthy life. People respond in various ways. Some commit to the ways presented to them while others choose to ignore it. That is okay after all, living a healthy life is an individual call!

Stress and You

Stress from the workforce, home and finances is most of the times too much to handle and at times people always seek for a professional help to get them through tough times. Stress can affect the person emotionally, mentally, socially and physically. They have said that stress can hasten up the aging process of the person and causes wrinkles. This is not good for us but thanks to science for coming up with anti wrinkle treatment. Stress is always present around us so it is just a matter of handling all the circumstances that comes along the way and taking care of yourself to minimize the effect to your health and body.

Weekend Time Spent Wisely

Last weekend, we did a couple of changes in the interior of the house. We re-arranged the furniture and painted some walls. Hubby and I decided to paint an accent wall in the living room and breakfast nook. We used a shade of yellow in the living room accent wall and red in the breakfast nook. We added an Asian plant and pictures to go with our Asian theme. We also did a thorough house cleaning of the whole house. We didn't make a lot of mess during while painting but since we haven't do a thorough cleaning lately so we decided to do it while we are on the mood (excuses...excuses...LOL). We have used wipes, cleaning spray, towels and solutin to maintain the glossy look of the granite in the kitchen counters. I told hubby that next time we go to the store, we might check some organic cleaning stuff like Anilox roll cleaner, adhesive removers and other greener cleaner. Afterall, it is nice to be concerned with our environment. Hubby didn't much agree about those green cleaning materials might be a bit expensive. Or maybe not, I really didn't get the chance to do a search and make a direct comparison.

Plan Upgrades

Lately, hubby has been talking about his plan to change the carpet in the house into wood. If plan will push through, we are going to start downstairs and upstairs will follow in time. He was also thinking of changing our faucets to Kohler faucets because he likes the its sleek and sophisticated design and its quality and we have some friends who are so happy in changing their faucets to the latter.

Well, it seems like hubby has quiet a plan in making our house look great and functional. It is just a matter of saving greens to start this projects in line. LOL

Your Wireless Security Systems

Having wireless security systems in your house or facility is very important for the security of your loved ones and your property. This will help you guard your property against bad elements in the society. Personally, I love having this additional security feature in the house especially when hubby is out of town on a business safe. It adds to my confidence and the feeling that I will know if someone will try to intrude our privacy and there is someone who is monitoring it 24/7. It is one of the expenses that are so worth it. After all, keeping your family safe is more important than anything else.
