Happy New Year Everyone

I want to wish you all a Happy New Year. My day is great though I wasn’t able to celebrate it with my husband. Instead, my friend invited me to celebrate New Year with their family. It’s such a nice experience to know them. They are wonderful people. At least, I wasn’t alone celebrating New Year. In fact, I enjoyed being with them. We played ping-pong and dart. They welcome me as part of the family even though I’m only a friend. Anyway, I want to thank my friend Ritchelle and her husband John for inviting me. Guys, I really appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness. It’s great to be your friend. Once again, Happy New Year to everybody. I wish you more happiness, good health and success in all your ventures. Stay happy! :)

Autism Support Network

Having family members who have autism disorder is not an easy task to tackle. It involves a lot of challenges, patience and acceptance. I recall one instance about my friend who had an autistic sister. She never introduced me to her sister. I can’t blame her for behaving like that. I understand it. She might be afraid to tell me about it. Or, perhaps she doesn’t want to hear any negative reaction from me in which I know for sure that it’s not going to happen. I have respect for all mankind. But, I never bother to ask her anymore. I don’t want to hurt her feelings. How I wish I could show her the site I found today where she could be reminded that she’s not alone and she doesn’t have to worry anymore. Autism Support Network has recently launched its free online support community available at It connects families and an individual touched by autism spectrum disorder with each other, provides support and insight, and acts as a resource guide for treatments, strategies and therapies. At this site, you are allowed to share information, chat with other members and share photos. So I encourage every one to visit the site and share what you have learned from this site. This may help them realize that having autistic family members is not that hard to accept. If interested, just visit the site for more information.

Top 5 New Year's Resolution

Since it’s almost the end of the month of December, I want to asked you what’s gonna be your New Year’s Resolution. I’m sure most of you wanted some changes in your lifestyles and even habits. Sounds very hard to change but we can make it if we’ve plan it ahead and have a determination to succeed in our goals. I have so much in mind right now that I want to share. Perhaps we have the same in common and we’ll help each other make it a successful one. So what do you think? Just leave a comment in my post.

Here’s my top 5:

1. Lose weight- I’ve gained so much weight and I promise the next year I’ll start eating healthy foods and exercise. My goal is to get the ideal weight I wanted. So I can wear my swimsuit for the next summer. Wish me luck!
2. Think positive- I’m pessimistic sometimes and I wanted to erase that behavior this New Year.
3. Stop Procrastinating- This is the bad habit I have when I got here. I promise I’ll do whatever things should be done in time. This is the reason why my driver’s permit expires. LOL!
4. Get a job- I need to pass the road test so I could find a job soon. I know I can make it with God’s guidance.
5. Save money- I promise I would not buy any jewelries anymore or nonsense things. Instead, I’ll save money for our future and help pay some bills.

Manage Your Debt Effectively

Having too much debt would probably have a big effect to your life. It will ruin your relationship with your family and work. You cannot concentrate well in your work if a debt collector keeps calling and even threatens you to jail. That really sucks! Not to mention, the people around the workplace who never trust you anymore. It will also affect your credit score. As we all know, a high credit score is essential in getting a lower interest rate. Like for example, you want to get a house and want to pay lower monthly mortgage payments. How can you get a lower interest rate if you have a bad credit? Of course, it’s a common sense. You will end up paying higher interest rates of credit cards and mortgage. And even worse, nobody would lend you money. However, there are still options for paying off your debt. If you are unable to pay all your bills, an IVA may offer you the opportunity to freeze interest payments, reduce debts and regain certainty in your financial future. As long as you are confident you can maintain the regular payment that is agreed in IVA could be the solution for you. So if you want to clear all your debts then you probably needed IVA right now. For more information, kindly visit the site.

One of my favorite dessert!

Three days from now, we will be celebrating New Year’s Eve. Whew! Time is so fast. It’s like we have just celebrated New Year’s Eve yesterday. Gosh! Hopefully, the economy will get better soon. Anyway, my husband’s boss invited us for a cocktail party this coming January 1st. They are such a nice couple. I wish they would have a profitable business next year so my husband will get a lot of work, too. LOL! I probably bake some cassava cake for them. I’m sure they would love the Filipino style cassava cake that I'm going to make. I’m pretty excited right now. I really want to thank them for being so nice to us. In fact, we receive a gift card from them a couple days ago. They even gave us Christmas greeting card. Tomorrow, I’ll start buying all the ingredients at the Filipino store. And, perhaps bake some cassava cake for us as well. It’s been a couple of months that I haven’t eaten cassava cake. I'm already imagining eating cassava cake right now. Hehehe! No wonder I never lose weight. I can’t resist sweet desserts. But, I promise I’ll stop eating sweets next year. Wink* That would be my New Year's Resolution.

New Tools To Help Students Apply to College

Education is a wealth that you could count as your own. Something you can be proud of. Nobody could steal it from you. I recall when I was still in High School, my parents would always remind me to study hard and to persevere in finishing my College. They’ve told me that I can easily find job when I finish college. Yeah, they were right. I was able to get a good job in the government. It’s a stable job that will give me a good future. Though, I quit my job because I need to be with my husband. But, I never regret it. I know I can still find a decent job here. However, I’ve planned of engaging another degree that would help me land a good job. I need to find out first if I will qualify for a scholarship program. Lucky, I found a site that will help me apply for college. I don’t know if I am in the right direction for getting another degree but I’ll try. There’s no harm of trying. Right! Anyway, CollegeZapps has created an online platform in order to modernize the application process. You just simply pick the list of colleges in their website and from that are given a full, comprehensive interview to complete. Then, you simply print the applications and put them in the mail with their other supplements. It’s easy and hassle free. So if you’re interested to learn how CollegeZapps can help you apply to college then you better visit their site right now. Who knows, you will be granted for a scholarship loan. I better find out, too. Wink* For now, I'll keep my fingers cross.

Papaya Dessert--Yummy!

I miss eating ripe papaya. Usually, I mix it with condense milk. And, It’s really yummy. We had papaya tree at back of our house in the Philippines. We just harvest it when it’s ripe. The papaya fruit we had was really sweet. Gosh! I miss it already. Did you know that papaya could fight skin wrinkles? Yeah, you heard it right. Papaya fruit have a load of vitamin C, and getting lots of vitamin C may mean more youthful skin. The nutrient is essential for making collagen; the protein fibers that give skin its strength and resiliency. According to Wikipedia, the mature fruit treats ringworm, green fruits treat high blood pressure, and is used an aphrodisiac. I still recall that ripe papaya can make your stool soft. The seeds are anti-inflammatory, and analgesic, and they used to treat stomachache and fungal infections. So I guess I need to include this fruit to my grocery list next week. I can’t wait to make a dessert. LOL!

Heroes at Home Wish Registry from Sears

Christmas celebration is finally over. Done with food preparation and gift giving. I am sure most of you were embracing a great time celebrating Christmas with your family and friends. You might not able to describe the happiness you feel right now. It’s really a priceless gift to be with your family in this time of festivity. This is the second Christmas season I’ve been away with my family back home but I’m still very grateful that I have a wonderful husband with me.
I would say that this is the greatest Christmas I’ve ever had with my husband. I could not compare it with any material gifts that I’ve received from him. It’s really amazing. We are quiet very fortunate that we were able to celebrate Christmas together. Several families like the Military service members that were assigned in various countries were not lucky to see their families this holiday season. I could feel the pain they are experiencing right now.
It’s not easy to be departed with your love ones. That is why I want to show support for the Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry program by donating a couple of dollars that I have in my pocket. It’s not that big amount of money but at least it will add up. Plus, the donations are not tax-deductible. So, it really can help a little bit. Guys, I encourage you to donate some cash to the Heroes at Home Wish Registry. I am sure that you will feel great about it. It’s better to give than to receive. LOL!

How I Wish I Could Help You!

I hope that my friend would not reprimand me for posting this complicated topic. My friend, I’m very sorry if I posted this. What’s important, I never mentioned your name in this post. I just want to express my feeling by writing it online. I cannot sleep thinking how I’m going to help you. I don’t know if you can still handle your problems right now. God knows how I feel sorry for what had happened to you. I want to help but I don’t know how. I feel guilty since I can’t do anything about it. I keep on praying that God will help you and make you strong. I can feel the pain in your heart right now. How I wish I could help you. Just always remember that I’m here to listen and give you support. Our house is always open for you. How I wish I had work so I could help you financially. And, please try those advices that I gave you. Who knows, it will work. I’m sure that God will not abandon you especially in this moment of time. Just trust him and everything will be fine. Everything is possible for him. So, please just hold on. Anyway, I’m just here inside the house if you want to visit me. Advance merry Christmas to you! God Bless…

The gift of life!!

A friend once asked me what is the greatest gift that I have ever received in my life? That was way back four years ago. I remember that my reply was work. Yeah, it was the time when I worked in the government with a decent salary. I would say that it was the greatest gift I received till that point. But, if somebody asked the same question right now, my answer would be my husband. My husband is the greatest gift that I’ve ever received from God. I am so lucky that I have a loving husband. And, I cannot think of any idea how to thank him for everything. Perhaps, I’ll just give him a Filipino-American baby. LOL! Or, I’ll just order a Celle collection kit so we will live healthy lives. I’ve heard that C'Elle menstrual stem cells have demonstrated the ability to differentiate into other cell types such as heart muscle, cartilage, nerve and bone stem cells. This translates into the potential for future therapeutic developments to possibly treat major diseases like diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. I might able to save the lives of my family. This is the greatest gift that I can give to my husband. Guys, how about you? Whom would you like to give C’elle kit as a gift? I will appreciate your comments and opinions.


Simplify Your Life!

Life is not easy. Sometimes, we feel overwhelmed with our family life, relationship and work. It’s like we are choke with all the problems and want to quit. We don’t know what to do anymore. Some are lucky since they know how to handle it. But, some people are not strong. There are even people who escaped it and done wrong decisions. Though, some individuals have learned from their mistakes, other’s not. So, it’s up to that person how she/he handles their life. The answer for that problem is the way you simplify your life to prevent stressful life. There are a lot of ways we can do to make our hectic lives a manageable one. There are ways to get everything and still have time for us. So I’m going to share what I’ve read in the magazine that I think can help simplify our lives.

Simplify your life:

1. Hire help- Try to hire someone who can help your work get done easily.
2. Do one thing at a time- it's nearly impossible to do everything at once and do it well.
3. Take a message- if you are "working" on something important, you do not have to feel obligated to answer the phone. You have a right to take care of your needs before the needs of others.
4. Don't obsess over cleanliness- Cleaning is important in our daily lives. However, don’t too over obsess with it that you'll forget to do what is more important.
5. Prioritize- Figure out the amount of time each task will take you to accomplish. Do not bite off more than you can chew. Make sure you measure your success on a daily basis.
6. Simplify your social life- the connection between you and your friends are more essential than a lavish extravaganza.
7. Take a break- your body, just like your car, deserves to be refueled. You simply cannot do it all if you haven't replenished your energy source.

Last Minute Gifts from Kmart!

Two days from now, we will be celebrating Christmas once again. Gosh! I’m sure that most of you are excited right now. Of course, you can’t wait to open your gifts. Isn’t it right? Well, you’re not alone. LOL! I’m also excited to know what’s in my gifts. I can’t wait to open it. But, I want to ask you one question. Are you done shopping yet? Well if not, you can still shop the last minute gifts from Kmart. In fact, you can still take advantage of their layaway program, no interest for six months and great holiday gifts under $25. Yeah, you heard it right. Wow! This is really good news to those who want to save money on their shopping. Frankly, I can’t figure out what type of gift my husband would like. Although, he told me that he doesn’t need any gifts this Christmas. But, I can’t sleep thinking about it. So, what I’m going to do is to find an item that I can afford. That would be my gift for him. Luckily, I found this Craftsman 23-inch hand toolbox while browsing at Kmart site. My husband is a mechanic so he probably likes this toolbox. I might purchase Joe Boxer Thermal Pants as well since it’s getting colder out here. Whew! Thanks God! I’m done! Guys, what are you waiting for? Visit the site and start shopping now.

I'm getting lazy!

I’m very lazy today. The weather is pretty nasty. Gosh! This is the first time I experience a very cold temperature. According to the National Weather service, Sunday in Detroit is expected to be dangerously cold with winds gusting at 40 mph. Temperatures will be in teens but will feel like 10 degrees below zero due to wind gusts. Imagine that! The snow started last Friday. And today, snow is expected to accumulate again due to the bad weather. Gosh! I hate when the weather is like this. I’ll be wearing thick clothes and I can’t do anything inside the house. Perhaps, I’ll just watch movie and wait for opps in front of my computer. Grrrrrrrrr. I want to shout loud right now. I’m getting fat and lazy everyday. It’s so boring to be home all the time. I wanted to find a job but I can’t because of this driving thing. How I wish my husband could understand the situation and will drive me for work. I might get a heart attack if I stay for a long time in the house. It’s very hard. I wish I could do something to convince my hubby to drive me for work. I pray and pray everyday that he would understand.

How Many Pairs Do You Own?

I used to collect shoes and bags when I was still in the Philippines. It’s one of my weaknesses in life. In fact, I missed my collection already. I can’t bring all my collection with me. That’s the reason I want to purchase some shoes and bags I could use here. I’m not really into branded products but I love to get one. However, a certain brands that I can only afford. LOL! A couple days ago, we went to the mall to do our holiday shopping. I was really looking for winter boots and evening shoes. But, I was disappointed because I never find the styles that I really like. I want stylish boots that I could use not only for winter season but also for daily use. Luckily, I found this amazing site that sells all the latest trends of dani black shoes available in the market today. Gosh! I’m sure you’ll feel in love with their footwear collections. I might ask my husband to purchase shoes instead of jewelries for me. I found a couple items that I really like from their site. The first shoe is the waxy calf leather boots called Collegiate. This short boots is stylish and perfect for winter, too. The second shoe that I’d like to get is the stunning flowered evening sandal called Violet. This is a perfect pair for my evening black dress. This shoe is very elegant. To all the shoe lovers out there, you better visit the site and join their newsletter for a chance to win those pretty shoes from their site. I wish I'd win those beautiful evening shoes. Sigh! I’ll keep my fingers crossed. *wink*

Fruit or Vegetable?

Is tomato a fruit or vegetable? You probably wonder why I ask this question. Well, I was just intrigue since some people claims that tomato is a fruit. But, I don’t think tomato is really a fruit. For me, it belongs to vegetable family. That’s the reason I research online to get some answers to this question. And, guess what? I’m confused right now. According to Wikipedia, Botanically, a tomato is the ovary, together with its seeds, of a flowering plant: therefore it is a fruit or, more precisely, a berry. However, the tomato is not as sweet as those foodstuffs usually called fruits and, from a culinary standpoint, it is typically served as part of a salad or main course of a meal, as are vegetables, rather than at dessert in the case of most fruits. This argument has had legal implications in the United States. In 1887, U.S. tariff laws that imposed a duty on vegetables but not on fruits caused the tomato’s status to become a matter of legal importance. The U.S Supreme Court settled the controversy in 1893 by declaring that the tomato is a vegetable, based on the popular definition that classifies vegetables by use, that they are generally served with dinner and not dessert. I was thinking with this before I read all the articles. And, I think my opinion is right. My husband and I argued about this. Until now, he claims that tomato is still a fruit. Well, that’s his opinion. I’ll respect it.

Happy Birthday Mom!

I just want to greet my mom a happy birthday today. Mom, you’re getting older now. LOL! That’s only a joke mom. I just want to make you smile in your special day. I don’t want you to cry. I know you’re missing me everyday. I hope you understand me. It’s hard to be away with you all. But, I can’t help about it right now. Too bad you can’t celebrate your birthday with me. But, I’ll try my best to get a vacation by next year. You know how much I miss you. All I wish to God is that he will give you good health and more happiness in life.

Evolution of Dance starring YOU!

One of the things I do in my spare time is dancing. I really enjoyed it. It helps me lose a little bit of weight, too. I like belly dancing, modern dance and hip-hop. In fact, I’ve collected a couple of DVD’s just for dancing. I can’t resist not dancing every time I hear the music. Gosh! I love it. Sometimes, my friends will invite me for a disco. Of course, that’s one of the things I can’t refuse. LOL! There’s something about dancing that makes me feel anxious. I feel vigorous and happy. I’m sure some of you can relate with me about it. Speaking of dancing, I came across with this amazing site that makes my day a jolly one. It was really funny. As a trailer to the sequel, Evolution Dance 2, partnering with, have created an interactive application, allowing users to upload photos and dance with Judson, while getting a sneak peak of songs and dance moves for EOD2! Isn’t it interesting? Well, I’m very sure that you’ll have so much fun visiting this site. I can’t stop laughing while watching it. The person who created this application must be very smart. Guys, what are you waiting for? Visit the site and experience the fun of the Evolution Of Dance starring YOU!! But, please don’t forget to upload the goofy picture you have. LOL!

Winter Skin Made Easy

I arrived in the US last winter season. Then, I started to get skin problems like pimples. My husband keeps telling me to stay away from chocolates. But, I suspected that my skin problem is not due to chocolate only. I think one of the factors of having pimples or dry skin is the cold weather. I’m not quite sure but I feel that’s one of the reason I had pimples the first month I got here. Or perhaps, the oily foods I consume almost every day. When I was still in the Philippines, I used to eat fresh fish and vegetables. But, it’s different when I arrive here. Anyway, I’ve read an article in the magazine about ways to get radiant skin in winter. I might try these great tips. It might help prevent from having flaky skin.

Here are the tips:

1. Go Richer- switch to heavier cream that lists water as the first ingredient to instantly hydrate.
2. Take a cool shower- hot water washes away your body’s natural lipids, which keep skin hydrated.
3. Exfoliate dull, rough spots- Exfoliate once a week with a shower pouf to promote healthy skin turnover.
4. Stop scratching- Scratching causes irritation, which then causes to itch more.
5. Eat some fat- avoiding fat is not healthy and it can dry out your skin.
6. Get more sleep- skin repairs itself, healing dryness as you snooze.
7. Treat hands and feet- give hands and feet a boost by applying a rich moisturizer and then putting on socks and gloves.
8. Use sunscreen- the sun’s rays are just as damaging in the winter. Use SFP with physical blocking agents, which protect against both UVA.

A couple weeks ago, I’ve read one interesting article about Identity theft. Frankly, it really scared me. I can’t believe how this hackers able to get all the confidential information including the social security number and even credit cards. They must be very smart. Smart in a bad way. I’ve heard that they can even pry on your email, too. Holy cow! I’m very worried about it because we were paying our bills online. I don’t know if our personal information are safe or not. I’m not even sure if we have email encryption software in our computer. I’ll probably discuss this important topic to my husband. It’s better to be careful than being sorry. Luckily, I found a site that will help keep dedicated hackers from intercepting and reading my private communications and confidential information. PGP produces encryption software and solutions for desktops, laptops, email, removable media and more. PGP Corporation is also the leader in file encryption software, hard drive encryption, secure FTP server applications and related security solutions. Confidential communications with clients, partners, suppliers, and consultants preserves your privacy and protects your business. It even helps you comply with governmental regulations. So if you want email protection from hackers online then you should visit the site right now.

The Best Cheesecake I Ever Have!

A couple days ago, we received a cheesecake from a good friend of ours. He was just thankful to hubby that he got his police badge back. Before we received the cake, he asked hubby what type of flavor I would like. My husband told him that I like a strawberry cake. So, it means he bake it for me. He is so sweet guy. LOL! The cheesecake was really delicious. We consume the whole cake for one day. Imagine that! It was the yummy cake I ever had in my life. I thought that he wasn’t the one who bakes the cake. But, I was wrong. He bakes goodies and sells it. How I wish I know the recipe so I could bake it myself. LOL! Just kidding! Today, I found out that he sells the cheesecake for $10 dollar. That’s not bad! He should sell it about $ 20. Gosh! I’m sure a lot of customer will buy his homemade goodies and cakes. I was even thinking of buying cakes from him and sell it to my friends. Hehehe! We even order another cheesecake for Christmas. This time we should try a peach flavor instead of strawberry. Gosh! No wonder I never lose weight. I have a sweet tooth. Wink* But, who can’t resist his cheesecake. You probably likes it too when you tasted it.

Hottest Products

Blogging really helps me a lot. It helps me expressed my feelings and thoughts. It helps me earns extra money in my pocket, too. All I do is just write an honest review regarding a certain product or service. That’s it! It’s really quick and easy. Now, I realize that product reviews is a must before buying a product. It’s one of the ways you can guarantee satisfactions. A lot of companies were claiming excellent and remarkable services but there is no guarantee that they are telling the truth. So, it’s much better to search online and look for the Hot product review. In fact, I’ve learned a big lesson joining one survey site since they never paid me. What a scam! LOL! At least, it’s not a big amount of money or else I’ll be in trouble. Now, I’m more aware about what to do first before joining moneymaking opportunities online. I don’t want to be scammed again. I’ll make sure that I search it in one of the product review experts online. Luckily, I came across with this great site called Hottest Products. You can search the top rated products in the market today. So if you are looking for a great product or services then this site is the right help for you. Just visit the site for more information.

Ways To Pamper Yourself

When I was still in the Philippines, my cousin and I used to pamper us with facial and spa in the city. Sometimes, we hired someone who can do facial for us every month. Usually, we only pay the women about 300 pesos. And, it really helps us soothe all the stress for a while. Sometimes, she will prick the blackheads/whiteheads in our faces leaving us with smooth skin all throughout the month. I’ve missed it already. I wish I could afford to pay for facial or spa here in America. However, there are ways we can pamper ourselves in just the comfort of our own homes. First, Get a pro facial at home. You can find the procedure at the YouTube if you don’t know how to do facial. Second, you can give your hair a boost. A half hour deep-conditioning treatment hides split ends and adds shine. Third, De-stress with a massage. You can ask your BF or hubby to give you a massage. Getting a massage significantly raises levels of the feel-good hormone serotonin and decreases levels of cortisol, a stress hormone linked to weight gain. Or, find a day spa near you if you can afford $100 pronto.

Craving for Chicharon Bulaklak

You might be wondering why I posted a picture that looks very yummy today. Well, I think some of you already know what’s in the picture. Right! In the Philippines, we call it Chicharon Bulaklak. And, when I got here, I was shocked since it’s also called Chicharon at the Mexican bakery. I guess we derived the term chicharon from Mexican who went to the Philippines many years ago. I am craving for chicharon right now. In fact, we will be going there tonight for a dinner and of course buy a couple of chicharon, too. It’s in the downtown and quite far from here. But, it doesn’t hinder us not to have a dinner there. It’s almost a month since the time we tasted chicharon. LOL! Hubby doesn’t eat fatty meat but he cant resist chicharon. He loves it. I was teasing him that where’s the man who never eat fatty meat now. He was just laughing. Even me can’t resist the juiciness of the skin and meat. I remember when I was still in the Philippines we used to buy a whole bag of Chicharon in the market. My mom would ask for a cheap price for each chicharon. Then, the vendor would give us discounts if we purchase a whole bag of chicharon. And, of course we will take advantage of it since it’s cheaper than buying pieces. Gosh! I can’t wait to eat chicharon right now. No wonder I never lose weight. Hehehe!

Secret Millionaire

Guys, have a your seen the dramatic series ”Secret Millionaire” at FOX? Gosh! I love this show. I’ve started watching it last week. And, I probably watch another episode tonight. LOL! I am already addicted with this show. Can you imagine that these millionaires will go undercover to the most impoverished and dangerous towns in America? Then, they will spend one week looking for the right individuals who will receive a big amount of money. Amazing, isn’t it? The most thrilling part is the time where they reveal their identities. I could see the tensions in their eyes and the excitement. This show really makes me cry. It is great to see philanthropists who are willing to help those underprivileged people. This show probably inspires millions of viewers around the world. I hope these millionaires will continue to help and inspire others. How I wish I were among the individuals who were showered with good amount of money. LOL! Just kidding!

MaryJane Goods: High Science High Art

I consider myself a fan of fine arts, canvas and decorative prints. You name it all! I simply adore houses with fantastic and huge custom-framed arts hanged on their walls. Gosh! I love it. That’s one of my passions in life. How I wish I studied Home Interior Designs instead of Engineering. LOL! Funny!

In fact, I’ve collected a couple of pretty artworks when I was still in the Philippines. But, I was disappointed since I can’t bring those items with me. It would be great if I brought the huge frames with me. LOL! Well, at least, I found a retail online site that offers a great selection of products such as art, t-shirts and novelty items. Mary Jane Goods creates original and intelligent pieces of art that are unique. Mary Jane Goods is an idea conceptualized by the idea of fusing “high science” with “ high art”. Mary Jane Goods is also inspired by Grandmason’s work with the DNA of endangered species.

While browsing at their site, I found these two items that really captures my attention. You can find the pictures above my post. The design of this art is similar to the lamps in our bedroom. It’s very pretty. This is really a perfect timing because we’ve planned to renovate our living room next month. And, I need simple and colorful prints that would fit the color of our wall. I’m pretty excited right now. I can’t wait to decorate and transform our living room. So how about you? Visit the site and start browsing for items, too.

Household Tip

A couple months ago, my hubby bought a wooden cutting board so I could use it when cutting veggies and meat. Now, I’m a little bit worried since my husband doesn’t listen to me. He wants me to use the same board for cutting veggies and meat. I’ve told him that it’s not safe. I don’t want to get bacteria for using the same cutting board. So I research in Yahoo about the safest ways to do and How to clean a wooden cutting board. I found out that I shouldn’t use the same cutting board for cutting veggies and meat. This will prevent cross contamination. Gosh! I was really correct. With cleaning, wooden board cannot be put in the dishwasher since it will ruin the wood. However, if you’re using plastic- the quickest way to clean is to put it in the dishwasher. For wooden board, you can scrub it with soap thoroughly. Then, let it dry before you put it in the cabinet. Another tip, you can spray the surface of the board with acetic vinegar for 20 minutes then wipe it. Now I know, I will never use the wooden board anymore. LOL! I probably tell hubby to buy another cutting board or else he will be reprimanded. Just joking!

Credit Report Repair Programs

Two weeks ago, my husband was worried because one credit card company lowered his credit limit. He was a bit confused and wondering what’s the reason behind it. It’s really unbelievable. We were paying our bills on time. Actually, we have just paid the 3 credits cards off in order for us to lessen the burdens of paying ridiculous amount of interest. And, how come this company lowers his credit limit. That makes no sense at all. Is this due to bad credit in the past? The answer might be complicated but we should know the reason. I’ve heard that some credit profiles reported contains serious errors. Perhaps, my husband’s credit report contains credit accounts that had been closed by consumer but incorrectly remained listed as open. Who knows! This is really a big headache for me if I find out that hubby’s credit report contain some error. We can’t afford for another payment right now. At least, I’ve read some information about credit repair programs while browsing online. They might be able to help us regarding our predicaments. They work with the credit bureaus and creditors to resolve issues on credit reports. Their programs are based upon extensive research of consumer credit laws, credit bureau tactics and persistence to clients. They might be able to correct or fix credit scores in your credit profile. That would be a big relief for us. If interested, just visit the site for more information.

One Last Wish Of A Dying Mom

Last night, I was watching a video from site. It was about a mom who had one last wish for her family. I’m sure some Filipinos are familiar with “ Wish ko lang”. It’s an episode where they grant wishes from letter senders. I used to watch this episode while I was still in the Philippines. And, I can’t help not to cry every time I watch it. It’s really heartbreaking. My husband was even wondering why I cried yesterday. He was asking what’s my problem. I could see that he was worried about it. But, I told him the reason and he was relief. LOL! After watching it, I realize how blessed I am having a wonderful life. That story changes my life. I use to complain to God why I have a life like this and never satisfied with what I have. But, as I watched the entire episode, I realize I should be thankful whatever I got even if it’s small or nothing. That woman who suffers from stage 4 lung cancer is such a strong and good person. I never heard complains in her mouth. She just wants the baby in her womb alive. All I hear from her is love and faith to God. She was really amazing. She’s a good model to all the moms out there. And, I’m so happy that the baby was fine. The baby was really a miracle to the family. God is really powerful and merciful. He grants the wish of the dying mom. It’s also nice to hear that there are still people who are willing to help and sacrifice for others. It's really a nice feeling. :)

Make Your Own Wristbands

Have you notice a lot of women wearing rubber bracelets and wristbands? I think it’s pretty cute and fashionable. Some women paired it with colorful attires. And, I can’t help not to admire these ladies. They are such a fantastic Fashionista. How I wish I possessed the qualities of a Fashionista. A woman who still looks gorgeous in spites the cheap clothes and accessories she wears. A woman who doesn’t have fears to experiment and accepts criticism. Well, everyone is unique. So I guess I need to accept that I’m not perfect person. Anyway, let’s go back to the topic regarding silicone wristbands and bracelets. Silicon bracelets are trendy, they’re inexpensive and they help raise funds for a variety of important charities and causes. While custom silicone wristbands accessories are making more than a mere fashion statement; they’re making a big difference with groups trying to raise money. What I am trying to say is that if you are among the group I’ve mentioned above then why not create your own wristbands with a message to raise some funds for your organization. A wristband with a message customizes silicone wristbands similar to the incredibly popular livestrong yellow wristband. You can even create your own message, text, logo or design on any color custom wrist band. Isn’t it great? I’m sure you’ll love these amazing ideas. All you have to do is visit the site right now. You can guarantee that their bands are 100% high-density industrial silicone and excellent quality. They do not require a minimum order. I might order two wristbands for myself, too. :)

Oh Cabbage!

Who doesn’t want cabbage? I’m sure most of you love to include it in soup and salad. Though, they are slightly bitter, but that’s because you can actually taste their colon-cancer-fighting compounds called isothiocyanates. Studies have shown that isothiocyanates in cabbage may actively block potential carcinogens, putting the kibosh on not only colorectal cancer but prostate cancer cells as well. According to the Wikipedia, Cabbage is an excellent source of Vitamin C. It contains significant amount of glutamine, an amino acid, which has anti-inflammatory properties. It is also a source of indole-3-carbinol, or I3C, a compound used as an adjuvant therapy of recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, a disease of the head and neck caused by human papillomavirus that causes growths in the airway that can lead to death. Lucky, I love to eat cabbage especially sauerkraut. Usually, I cooked it with sausage. And, it’s really yummy. So I guess we should include it in our diet, too.

Not Much!

It’s very cold today. The snow started to accumulate about 3 inches. But, it doesn’t hinder us not to go to the restaurant. We supposed to go to the Christmas party but it never happened anymore. We just went to the Mongolian restaurant and rent some DVD’s from Blockbuster store. And, we also went to the jewelry store where my husband bought my wedding ring. It needs to be inspected to be sure that the diamonds is not loose. Then, we went home and watched the movies we rented. I never bothered to look for my emails or Opportunities online. I was really tired and want to relax. I need to concentrate with the movies. The movies are very scary. I love watching suspense, love stories, comedy and scary movies. My husband was weird since he let me choose the movies I want. Of course, I prefer scary movies since it’s very cold. LOL! Just kidding! Well, we have so much fun together. That’s what matters most for me. Hopefully, we can rent another DVD’s next week.

Tactical Knives- A Must Have

One of our duties and responsibilities while we’re in training at the Camp is to be always ready at all times. It’s really a must to have your tactical gears ready while you’re in duty. You should wear complete Tactical Uniform and bring with you the necessary things like Notebook, Pens, Flashlight and 5.11 Tactical Knives. Tactical Knives is very important equipment you should have in the rappel session. Without it, you’re in trouble. LOL! I even recall that our tactical officer punished us since one of our mates doesn’t follow instructions. We call that saying “ One for all, all for one”. A mistake of one mate is the mistakes of the entire group. That’s why we make it sure we have everything ready.

Orange Fruit!

Guys, do you love to eat any type of oranges? I was just curious since I really don’t like to eat oranges. I don’t like the taste. I don’t know why but I tried for my own benifit. We can get a lot of health benefits from consuming this type of fruit. Winter is the season for fresh citrus, and oranges are loaded with vitamin C. One orange alone offers up more than 100% of your daily requirement of power-packed vitamin C, as well as other disease fighting nutrients. Plus, oranges have folate, a B vitamin that may help to keep your heart healthy, as well as fiber and potassium. So I guess we need to include this fruit in our grocery list next time. LOL!

The Orchid Boutique

I love women who have a sense of fashion. Women who still look fabulous even with a cheap garment. They are the type of women who have confidence in their looks and styles. They are not afraid to experiment and show it to the whole world. They are called Fashionista. Frankly, I really envied fashionista. They had these guts and confidence that I don’t have. LOL! But, I can’t help it. People are different and imperfect. So I guess I don’t need to think about it. Speaking of fashion, I want to share with you an exclusive designer swimwear and jewelry site that fashionistas would surely love. is a unique boutique that pre-selects the best designer swimwear and swimsuits for the trendy fashionista. They offer an elite selection of unique and couture swimwear. They also offer a unique line of fashion and Gemstone Jewelry .

I miss my family!

These are the 2 pictures of my mom with aunt while meeting my friend at Surigao City. I requested my friend if she can meet my mom. Luckily, she was fine with it. My mom really wants to know if I’m okay here. And, she wants to send some knick-knacks for me. As you can see in the picture, it’s obvious that she was crying. Actually, we’re very close. I always bond together. We are like friends. That’s why she was having a separation anxiety sometimes. Some of my friends would tell that I was her favorite daughter. She never admits it. But, I can see how she treats me than my sister. My sister would complain sometimes. She keeps telling me to get a vacation to the Philippines. I told her that I’d do it next year. It’s not the right time for me to have a vacation. Fare ticket is really expensive. Plus, I need to pass my road test first before I go home. Yeah, I really missed them so bad. But, I need to be reasonable of my decision. I don’t want to regret it. I know they will understand me. For now, I’ll keep on praying that I can find a cheap fare ticket. LOL!

Holiday Eyeglass Frames!

Lately, I’ve noticed that my eyes were getting blurred. I am having a hard time reading small letters on the computer monitor. Sometimes, I get headaches without any reason. I suspected that there’s something wrong with my eyes. Hopefully, I’m wrong with my suspension. I don’t used eyeglasses. And, I’m afraid I will look like an elderly lady wearing those eyeglasses. LOL! But, I can’t help it if I need to wear prescription eyeglasses. It will help me see clearly when I read. Plus, it’s not the right time to spend money especially in time of economic crisis. At least, I know where to find affordable prescription eyeglasses. One of my friends recommends visiting site. At Zenni Optical, you can find high quality frames at a truly reasonable price. Anyway, if you need some gift ideas this holiday season then why not include Holiday frames in your gifts list. This is really a perfect gift this Christmas. I’m sure they’ll love it. You don’t have to worry about ugly eyeglasses since they have stylish frames available online. I even started browsing for frames just in case I need one. You can see the picture above this post. It’s pretty. Right! It’s really obvious that I love pink. LOL! I think I'll look good with those pink frames.

Shot On The Spot!

I received this tag from my friend youngest. It says in the procedure that I should take picture by myself. But, I don’t think I can make it. It’s hard to take pictures while holding it away from your face. LOL! But, I hope the picture that I’ll share will be acceptable to you. My husband took this picture while I was cooking a barbeque ribs. I don’t have any idea he was taking pictures. A hidden one! I was just wearing a big hoddie. As you can see, I was very serious with my cooking. And, I had a goofy smile. I love taking pictures with nice pose and sexy dress. But, with this picture, you can see how messy I was. No makeup! Stinky smell! LOL! Just joking! But, anyway, thank you so much for the tag my friend. I enjoy making this post. I really appreciate it.

1) Take a picture of yourself right NOW!
2) DON'T change your clothes, DON'T fix your hair... Just take a picture.

The Pearl Outlet

Here goes the month of December. Time really flies so fast. Sooner or later, we will be celebrating Christmas with our love ones. It’s the time to prepare delicious foods and share gifts. But, Are you done shopping yet? If not, why not include pearl jewelry in your gifts list. It’s a perfect Christmas present for mom, sister or a friend. Pearls are unique gift that they would treasure forever. There are different types of pearl jewelry such as Tahitian, Akoya, Saltwater, Freshwater, Cultured, Natural, Japanese Vs Chinese Akoya, White South Sea and Mabe pearls. But, Tahitian pearl are rare than other types of pearls, since only a smaller number of oysters survive to produce a fine pearl. Anyway, I encourage you to visit site if you want to find good quality of pearl jewelries. They have quality pearls available at a wholesale price. I really love jewelries but I notice I didn’t have pearl jewelries in my box yet. I probably save money to buy a set of pearl jewelry. I even found the pearl earrings that I like.

I feel in love with the style. How I wish I could afford it right at this moment. LOL!

Ovation Credit Services

I never thought that a credit report is very important here in the US when you apply for a loan or credit cards. In the Philippines, you can get a loan if you can show them your paycheck. But, I find the process very different when I arrived here in the US. You need average to good credit so you can get lower interest rates. Speaking of Credit Reports, I’m sure some of you were denied credit due to derogatory and or negative information resulting in a lower credit score. Statistic showed that 3 out of every 4 credit profiles contain potentially serious errors. 79% of credit reports contain some type of error. 25% of all credit reports contain errors serious enough to result in the denial of credit. However, you can now fix credit through credit report repair programs. Ovation Credit Services offers a premiere attorney that will help you achieve optimal credit profile. They work with the credit bureaus and creditors to resolve issues on credit reports. Their programs are based upon extensive research of consumer credit laws, credit bureau tactics and persistence for clients. So if you have bad credit then you should visit the site right now. I’m sure you’ll get the credit repair you needed.

I received an email together with this picture from a friend. And, I want to share it to all my visitors of this blog. I was just amazed of the beauty of this picture. I think she/he is a very gifted person. She/he is artistic, too. I can’t believe how she draw or painted this picture. Anyway, I’ll want to ask you what you see in this picture. If you can answer it correctly then you must have good eyes. LOL! Please leave a comment if you found something in this picture other than nature. I will really appreciate it. :) Thanks!

Yamaha Motorcycle Parts

My husband’s friend got this Yamaha motorcycle that needs to be fix. I guess there’s something wrong with the parts. He was asking my hubby to fix his motorcycle. Lucky, my husband is a very good mechanic. I’m sure he can fix it for him. And, we can earn extra cash for that. But, hubby needs to find for yamaha motorcycle parts before he’ll fix it. I might tell him to visit site. He probably gets what he needed. Let’s see!
