Credit Card Deals

There are so many existing credit companies to choose from nowadays. The internet can be a great tool for choosing and deciding which credit company suits the consumers' financial needs and spending habits. Some companies guarantee pre-approvals but you might be surprised with the very high monthly transaction fees, and APR’s. I myself always get a pre-approved credit card offers in my email. I know it’s hard to trust these credit companies right away. Best if we do our homework first and determine which one has the best features for credit card deals. In other words, reliability and affordability should be on top of our list in finding one.

I’ve been planning to get a new credit card and I came across credit-card-analyzer.com. This website really caught my attention because they have a variety of credit card deals such as deals for credit history, spending patterns and foreign and banks credit deals. If you have a very poor FICO score or you are one of those are who are having difficulty rebuilding or re-establishing your credit, you better check the website. They offer guaranteed unsecured bad credit credit cards. You will find the best bad deals from them. Their instant online application include immediate approvals, low rates, and balance transfers. Visit the website now and see for yourself their best deals! Remember, life is not easy nowadays. It’s better to be always wise in terms of having sound financial decisions. And that includes choosing the best credit card deals.

A Great Buffet

My friend and I discovered a new Chinese restaurant (Fortune Dragon) which is very close to my house. We had our lunch buffet there and the food is great. Very delicious! They have a variety of seafoods (my favorite), salads, sushi, pasta, desserts, soups, pastries from different international cuisine. Plus the fact that it's just a five-minute drive to my place. It's worth my $10 bucks, (with tax of course!). No wonder they have so many customers inside when we entered the reception.

Wasted Lives In China


I was really saddened by the earthquake news in China which killed thousands of people. We all know that this kind of calamity is unpredictable and beyond human control. It just hits any area at any time and sometimes without warning. Death toll is expected to rise day after day. The 7.8 magnitude quake devastated the southwestern part of the country killing 10,000 people (as of today) and trapping hundreds of others under schools, factories and houses. I hope and pray for miracles to happen and I hope the rescuers could find many survivors. Nothing is really impossible.

Let's Dance!

I keep on seeing this core rhythms dance exercise DVD workout advertisement on TV. Sometimes advertising can be exaggerated and product results are not met but the public in general are the advertisers' target. That is why most advertisements are making sure they have the right concept that will appeal to the masses and persuade them to buy. Well, I was convinced so to speak with this DVD so I ordered online. The package contains 4 DVDs and each has diffrent workout rhythms. I have tried it a few times. I hope this works but it goes with dieting of course. Core Rhythms is an exercise workout that uses sexy Latin dance actions to raise the heart rate. It tones and tighten the upper abs, middle abs, lower abs, obliques and your back. It's really fun and you will be sweating a lot!

I've been super busy lately with work. I got a part-time job offer and I don't want to miss the opportunity. It's another great experience for me. So right now, I'm having two jobs. I know I missed a lot of posts from my fellow bloggers but I will make it up to you guys. Anyway, I really appreciate all your visits here in my blogpage. You know who you are. Now that I'm back to blogging, expect to see me in your page.

My Shoe Connection


The nature of my job sometimes requires me to walk around aside from sitting comfortably in the admin office. Most of my shoes are high-heeled. I don't like flat shoes simply because I can't cheat on my height since I'm a petite lady. Hahaha! Well, I don't really have a choice but to get some flats for more comfort at work. And these are what I got today while shopping with my friend who happens to be a shoe addict. She has countless pairs. I even sometimes tease her if she wants to be like the controversial former Philippine first lady way back in the 80's. It's unbelievable how many shoes the former's President's wife used to have. She got 2,000 pairs! And her shoes were even featured on TV and around the world.

Hubby's Surprise


Got a surprise from my very thoughtful hubby tonight. He is full of surprises even if there is no occasion. He knows I love chocolates so much. Godiva is one of my favorites. Lindt, Patchi and Cadbury and Godiva chocolates really make me happy. Hahaha! I just can't live without them! I'm sure this box will be gone soon. Very soon.

A Gift From A Friend



I got this cute purse from a friend today. It really made my day. Thanks to her. I love bags and purses just like all the other women in the world.

Baby Maker

I found this great soap opera in youtube called "Palimos Ng Pag-Ibig" which means "Begging For Love. Its a drama teleserye which had been aired in the Philippines two years ago I guess. One youtube account has the complete list of episodes from start to finish so I made sure to be one of his subscribers. The story is a love triangle drama which highlights the importance of conceiving a child due to family pressure. The couple unfortunately is unable to reproduce because of the wife's health problems. The desperate husband decided to pay a baby maker so he can have a child of his own from her instead of adoption. Later did he realized that he was falling for the baby maker. A great story of love, trust and betrayal. Even if I'm too tired from a stressful day's work, I watch episodes whenever I can.

I Love This Valance!



As a wife, part of my job is interior decorating. The first few months when I got here, I was shocked of their curtain prices. Unbelievable! Very expensive! Well, there are some cheap curtains you can find in the mall but I'm not sure of their quality and design. While I was looking around for stuffs in Bed Bath & Beyond, I found this very beautiful valance. Even if they are kind of expensive, I still got them. I just love the unique design, plus the color matches my home's theme color.

Stormy Real Estate Market


I'm worried about the country's problematic economy. This has a huge impact on the real estate market. This means buyers are having a hard time to close home deals and home sellers are losing money when they sell. As a homeowner, it is a big concern for home prices deflating. Although we don't plan to sell our house now but we want to eventually move and buy our dream house years from now. So we need higher equity for that. I hope and pray this real estate roller coaster will soon be over.

Tornadoes In The Neighboring State

I was really shocked of the tornado news yesterday in Suffolk, Virginia. Even if it is in the southern part of the state, it's still close to my beloved state of Maryland. Calamities like these do happen here in the U.S. and it's scary because it ruin not only cars, trees, power lines, houses, establishments, and some properties but also dangerous to possibly cause major injuries and even death to residents. I hope people will be more alert and updated of the coming tornado warnings. It's no joke to loose our homes and start over.

Life Strategies

I just finished reading this book which I bought weeks ago. I got wonderful insights about life strategies and found great advice from successful people who themselves have experienced many failures but made it still to success despite the hardships. There are just so many issues that we have to deal with as we go through life every single day. There is the issue of financial contentment with what we currently earn and not being able to make more money. We sometimes feel frustrated because we don't get what we want. It seems like we are just going through the motions of our lives with no passion, no plan, and no goal. Or simply bored with ourselves? Some are silently enduring an emotionally barren life or marriage. Others are living a lonely existence with little hope for change. If you experience some of these, I want to share some strategies. Who knows it might work for you.

1. You either get it, or you don't.
Strategy: Become one of those who gets it.
2. You create your own experience.
Strategy: Acknowledge and accept accountability for your life.
3. People do what works.
Strategy: Identify the payoffs that drive your behavior and that of others.
4. You cannot change what you do not acknowledge.
Strategy: Get real with yourself about your life and everybody on it.
5. Life rewards action.
Strategy: Make careful decisions and then pull the trigger.
6. There is no reality; only perception.
Strategy: Identify the filters through which you view the world.
7. Life is managed; it is not cured.
Strategy: Learn to take charge of your life.
8. We teach people how to treat us.
Strategy: Own, rather than complain, about how people treat you.
9. There is power in forgiveness.
Strategy: Open your eyes to what anger and resentment are doing for you.
10. You have to name it before you can claim it.
Strategy: Get clear about what you want and take your turn.

Making Sense of Autism

I have read an article about an increase in the diagnosis of autism in children nowadays compared to the last decade. Earlier reports estimated only 1 child in 1,000 had autism. Now, it's 6 in 1,000. This higher frequency is alarming. Now I'm scared for my future child. Although I plan to have a baby two or three years from now, I'm concerned about my age and I hope it has nothing to do with it. For those who just gave birth, doctors recommend parents to learn about the normal growth and development of a child so they'll have the idea whether the child is on the right track. Make sure to have routine check-ups so the doctor could monitor the child's normal development especially when they reach 18-24 months old. Autism screening should be done by this specific age range. The sooner autism is diagnosed or the sooner the treatment begun, the better a child will do in the long run.

I Hate Rainy Days

It's been raining lately. I hate it. I can't do my everyday jogging routine in the park. You see, I'm very motivated to loose some weight because I'm looking forward to our Philippine vacation next year. I want to feel confident wearing sexy bathing suits! LoL! Boracay is on top of our list. It will be summer of 2009 for sure. With many great resorts in my hometown, I can't say no to frolicking with my hubby, family and friends in the beach. I'm a certified beach bum I admit. I really miss the seawaves also, the very calm seawater which I can hardly find here of course because of the surrounding big bodies of ocean.

Crazy Baseball Fans



These photos were taken last Saturday evening at Baltimore Camden Yards. My hubby loves sports so much. Since baseball season has just started and I know he's an avid fan of the sport, I decided to go with him watched one of the Orioles-Yankees games. Thank God we arrived early at the stadium and never had to deal with the long line at the gate for ticket inspection. The photos above really show how Americans love baseball games. There were 45,000 estimated crazy baseball fans attending the game on that one particular night. Luckily my hubby's favorite team won. It's crazy hearing people trash talking defending their respective teams. The stadium is like a great venue for a big party for sports fanatics. A sport for all ages where Americans gather as one big happy family.

Credit Offers

Are you planning to get a new credit card? Credit offers are everywhere. You might be getting many junk mails everyday about pre-approved offers but there are no guarantees of good rates of course. Even if it says pre-approved, it still doesn’t mean anything if you do not meet certain requirements in the actual application process. Besides, pre-approved offers might not match your spending habits depending on your credit needs.

Filipinos Abroad

My friend and I went malling today. We met two Filipino couples and got to chit chat with them for a while. They've been here for 30 years. It's really a wonderful feeling seeing some Pinoys abroad. I can't explain the instant closeness when conversation starts. Or maybe it's a cultural thing because we Filipinos are very warm, sociable and friendly. It's like you know one another for a long time already. A simple gesture of saying hello or even just a smile makes me feel home. I thought a great number of Filipinos are mostly based in California or Florida but I can see them here as well. And there's plenty of them!

The Smallest Horse

I got this pic from a friend's email. This small horse's name is Thumbelina. I really find it cute so I decided to post it here.




She may be small, a mere 17 inches and weighing only 60 pounds. But she is all horse. Thumbelina is officially recognized as the world’s smallest horse. Normally horses weight about 250lb and rise to a height of 34 inches when they are fully grown. But from the day she was born it was clear that tiny Thumbelina would never grow to that size. She weighed only 8lb – the size of a new-born baby when she was born. Eventually she grew to just 60lb. Her amazing size has been explained as dwarfism. This makes her a miniature of a miniature.

Wow! It's Been A Year

Time flies so fast! It's been a year since I got here. So many things happened. I can't enumerate each of them here but I can share the highlights of my one year stay in the US. I left the Philippines April 13, 2007 via Philippine Airlines with connecting flights, Cebu-Manila, Manila-LA, LA-Baltimore. I was having mixed emotions then. When I was about to leave, I felt very excited about having a new life with my fiance and sad at the same time saying goodbye to my family at the airport. On the other hand, it's been a great year for me. I got married, travel to see places, meet friends, got a job, got a driver's license, got my green card for permanent residency and most of all after a year of being together I realized I did the right choice. They say it's hard to be married to a foreigner because of cultural differences and interracial marriages are difficult but it works for us. I'm grateful for 1 blissful year and I'm still counting...

A Walk In The Park

This is one of my favorite places to hang out with my pinay friend together with her husband and daughter. It's only 10-15 minutes drive (depending on the road traffic) from my house. We visit this park often if we have the time and no work. It's a very quiet place to relax, take a walk, have picnic or just unwind from a stressful day's work. The park is huge and the lake for fishing as well! The first time we got here we walked for almost three miles which took us an hour for one round. It was really a good exercise. That is why I love to keep on coming back.

Credit Card Deals

Are you tired of finding the best credit card deals? Although having credit cards have its disadvantages, it is also very important to have one. In the Philippines not all people have cards simply because there are some requirements which need to be met before approval. When I got here it’s totally different. I noticed most people use cards in making purchases, in grocery stores, restaurants, shopping malls, etc. Then I realize the importance of it. Landlords, employers and insurance companies check credit records. Looking at somebody’s record allow them to see the person’s spending pattern and even a history of declared bankruptcy. That is why it is essential to have a credit card and choosing the best credit card deals evaluation should also be considered. One way is to look for best deals online. You might want to take a look at Best-Rate-Visa-Credit-Card-Applications.com. The website provides valuable information on new credit card deals including business credit card deals. They can help you identify the great credit deals from the leading companies like MasterCard, Visa and American Express. Interested? Apply online now and compare credit card deals by rewards, spendings, banks, and even foreign card deals.

The Art of Painting


I'm so happy today coz I bought a painting for $10. Hahaha. It's actually old but it's not obvious. My hubby likes it. He is a minimalist when it comes to his tastes in visual art. He doesn't like too much colors. I don't like the white frames though. We will just paint it with another color, a dark brown maybe to emphasize its wood frames. A little work will be worth it considering I didn't pay that much.

Chapman House Inc.

Drug addiction is one of the common problems society is facing today. There are a lot of reasons why some people are taking them. Curiosity could be one. There is also what we called “peer pressure” on the younger generation. And there are times when people just want to forget present problems or don’t want to deal with too much depression or stress that is why they resort to drugs. They think this is an easy escape and the only solution to life’s difficulties and problems. When we say drug addiction, it could either be an intoxication of an alcohol substance or chemical substance. I remember one of my friend’s mom’s son had to undergo a drug treatment at a very young age. Drug rehab did really help him and now he is a new person and having a great life.

If you know someone, a relative, a neighbor or a friend, the best way to care for them is to show your concern. There might be times when people commit mistakes like drug dependency for example. Browsing the net led me to a specific website which helps provide drug treatment program. Chapman House offers a wide range of options which include treatment for alcoholism, drug addiction, food addiction and eating disorders and many more. One way to fastest recovery is their detoxification program. That is if the patient is cooperative and not hesitant to undergo such treatment. But if the patient doesn’t want to give his 100% shot and reluctant, they have the family intervention technique which has been proven to be successful for most of their patients. The Chapman House Counseling Team can also conduct Professional Drug and Alcohol Evaluations for anyone who requires an assessment. So if you want to help someone it is never too late. Make a difference in other people's lives. Drug rehabilitation at Chapman House is an option. The road to fast recovery and new life may begin here.

Books To Read


I love to read books (especially mystery novels). Even though how hectic my schedule gets, I still spend time reading some pages before going to sleep. Today, I got great deals from Salvation Army Store. While a friend of mine was so busy shopping for clothes, I enjoyed the books on sale. Daniel Steel is one of my favorites and when I saw the books, I never had any second thought of not buying them. Plus, they were on sale! Each book costs only $1. I have read some of them in college but I want to read them over and over again. Now, I have six books to read. Whew!

To Earn Money

There is a lot of ways to earn money (gagner de l'argent) by simply using the internet. Building store online, blogging, answering surveys, etc. are few of them. However there is also a lot of fraud going on the net nowadays like work at home scams which mostly require registration fees before joining. Another way for easy money (argent facile) is playing casino online considering your expertise in the field. For those who don’t know the right tactics, I know one website which will help you earn money through their proven techniques. Although I have not tried their method myself, I just want you to share their expertise and strategies to win more money. You can try by playing one of their casino selections and download the free software. To become rich (devenir riche)might be some people’s dream but who knows their money-maker method might work for you. These group of experts in probabilities specialize in the industry of the play might give you a rare chance of a lifetime.

Keep These Lines In Mind

A sharp tongue can cut my own throat.
If I want my dreams to come true, I mustn't oversleep.
Of all the things I wear, my expression is the most important.
The best vitamin for making friends..... B1.
The happiness of my life depends on the quality of my thoughts.
The heaviest thing I can carry is a grudge.
One thing I can give and still keep...is my word.
I lie the loudest when I lie to myself.
If I lack the courage to start, I have already finished.
One thing I can't recycle is wasted time.
Ideas won't work unless "I" do.
My mind is like a parachute...it functions only when open.
The 10 commandments are not a multiple choice.
The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime! It is never too late to become what I might have been.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the one's who don't. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

Good Old Movie

Instead of watching a movie in the theather like we usually do every Friday night, we decided to just stay in the house and find a good movie on TV. Although most movies on the list are old, we found one which we both agreed to watch. I remember "Ghost" became so popular in the Philippines. My dad even bought a VHS copy and my whole family kept on watching the movie over and over again. I was still in grade school then. How time flies so fast. But I'm wondering how come Demi Moore still looks the same. Maybe a young lover keeps her youthful beauty. Anyway, good old movie like this is great to watch. It made our night.

Lumens Lighting And Living

Home interior designing has become my favorite hobby now that I got married. When I first got here, the house was so plain and simple. It looked like a bachelor’s pad. It really reflected my husband's status. No decorative curtains, only blinds. There was white paint all over the house from the ceiling to the bathroom down to the full basement. I guess all he cares is work and work. Beautifying the house and decorating it is not his thing. Well, not anymore. Since I got here, I busied myself decorating. Part of it was looking for good deals in the internet. Until now, I’m still working on making the house more beautiful. While browsing the net this morning trying to look for chandeliers and lighting, I came across lumens.com. They have a wide selection of Contemporary lighting from Eurofase. Aside from lighting, they also have home accessories and more home products which are good designs at reasonable prices. The website offers a wide array of product selection from world-renowned lighting innovators like Flos, Artemide, Tech Lighting and LBL Lighting. Their modern ceiling fans came from manufacturers like Minka Aire. Even though their big showroom is located in California, you can still shop their products online like you are in the actual showroom. Everything can be browsed over the net and you don’t have to worry about shipping cost. It’s free if you order over $50 and no restocking fees. So visit the showroom now or shop online. Either way, Lumens.com features the very best designs in modern and contemporary lighting as well as extraordinary home accessories.

My Sister's First Boyfriend

Finally, after months of courtship my sister said "yes" to her sincere and consistent suitor. Though we are miles apart, she always tells me things about her latest updates, be it in her studies or her lovelife. She had many suitors before but I don't know why it took her awhile to get into a relationship. I'm glad she found a boyfriend. A great guy can be a good source of inspiration (especially now that she's a graduating nursing student). It reminds me of my younger days, fell in love, get hurt, move on and fell in love again. The cycle goes on and on. Hehehe... It just needs patience and good judgement to find the right one. I'm glad I found my husband after all those trial and errors. LoL.

Bad Credit Improvement

Managing our finances involve great responsibility. One example is how we use credit cards in the best way we can. Since good credit report reflects our credit worthiness, choosing the right credit card is also very important.

But having credit cards has also its disadvantages. These include the possibility of increased debts and very high interest rates and penalties. That is why if you are in a bad credit situation right now and wants bad credit improvement, there’s a solution for you. Acclaimsecuredcards.com can be one of your options.

My Daily Supplements


Having a busy lifestyle, we sometimes go for fast food, order pizza online or eat microwavewable food. I know these kind of ready to eat food are not healthy and don't have all the necessary nutrients that our body needs. That is why I make it a habit to take daily supplements as substitutes. I take them every single day after a meal. I even read about a famous Dr. Linus Pauling who encouraged people about his Vitamin C theory. I'm sure his name sounds familiar to you because he was the only one in the world to have won two times unshared Nobel Prizes (Chemistry and Peace). He used to take 10,000 mg of Vitamin C everyday. He died at the age of 93. Some people don't believe in the importance of vitamins but I do, simply for these reasons:
  • Glutathione's role as an antioxidant, detoxifier, and the possible reversal of malignant cells to healthy cells;
  • Vitamin C for a healthy immune system;
  • Vitamin D for healthy bone development;
  • Vitamin E for healthy skin and vital for proper nervous system function;
  • Fish Oil which contains Omega-3 fatty acids (good for the heart);
  • Flaxseed Oil which protects against certain cancers especially the common breast cancer incidence in women and prostate cancer for men;
  • Lecithin which is necessary for the renewal and maintenance of all cell membranes;
  • Calcium for healthy bones and teeth, and of course for osteoporosis prevention

3 Cups of Coffee Today

I'm not a coffee lover like most people but I consumed three cups today at work. I felt so sleepy because there was nothing much to do in the office. I am a new employee so even if I would offer some help, it would still be useless because they have their own job functions which are totally different from mine and I'm not 100% familiar with the system yet. To kill my time, I busied myself browsing ebay. I have seen great stuffs in the website like paintings but I don't like the idea of buying online because the cost of shipping and handling is not always free. Anyway, going back and forth to the pantry for cups of caffeine helped me minimize my yawning. It really did until it was about time to leave.

Get Paid To Blog

Blogging is my way of creating a personal diary online where I can write the important events of my life. It’s my way of expressing my deepest thoughts, my ups and downs, my success and failures, and many more. Then I realize that blogging could also be a great source of extra income. I thought these making money online stuffs in the internet are all scam. I was wrong. Smorty is a legit blog advertising tool. It is a service company which connects advertisers with bloggers. With Smorty, a good friend of mine told me about her experience with blog for money. I got very excited so I signed up with them, submitted my blog account and got approved immediately. They give opportunities for bloggers like me to get paid for simply writing my opinions on things/topics I am interested about. It’s absolutely free to create an account with them. For payment purposes, all they require is a PayPal account and after writing a post, expect to get paid fast weekly. So if you want to earn extra income, check the website for more detailed information and blog requirements. Don’t waste your time, get paid for blogging!

Something To Look Forward To

We are very excited for a new development near our place. Outside the guard house, there is currently a billboard, advertising about retail spaces for lease. That is why months ago, they vacated the whole lot and I'm sure it will be for commercial purposes. Hopefully it will be a shopping center with famous stores/boutiques and restaurants. That would mean convenience and more shopping time for me since it will only be a walking distance from our house. Not only that, with this development, it will also benefit our house property value. It will surely appreciate the current market price of our house. We are so happy for this great news! It's really something to look forward to.

Cooking School

Cooking is something that I really would love to learn. Although it’s not my passion but having a little expertise in the kitchen would be great so I can cook really good food for my hubby. I remember last year, one of my “to do lists” before leaving the Philippines is to enroll in a culinary school. Unfortunately I was not able to because I got so busy with other important things. Now that I’m here, I would love to enroll myself in the future (if I have time). Are you planning to do the same thing? If so then I recommend you this CulinarySchoolFinder.com. It is a good source of finding culinary schools online. You can also search by careers in hotel and restaurant management or becoming a Sous Chef or Food Stylist. To find a chef school, check this website. You can also choose culinary schools by themes (French, Italian, Mexican, Thai, baking, pastry cooking schools) and many more.

Sleepless

I'm working six days a week and Sunday is my only off from work. Last night, I slept very late (2:30 AM) because my family and I spent four long hours talking on the internet via skype. Thanks to this free mode of communication, I don't have to spend for long distance calls like I used to when I got here the first few months. This morning the aroma of the maple bacon woke me up. I should have been sleeping until lunch time but I can't resist the smell of the food my hubby was preparing. Instead I got hungry and had a heavy breakfast. Then I busied myself with blogging while hubby was watching the Pacquiao-Marquez Boxing replay in HBO. And tomorrow will be another brand new week. Now I miss the days of being sleeping beauty all day!

There's Something Oysters Want To Tell You

I admit I am a seafood lover. I can eat as much as a large platter of combined sauteed shrimps, fried fish, grilled squid, steamed crabs and baked oysters in one sitting. We all know that they are good sources of nutrients and vitamins. But do you know that oyster in particular can give consumers the potential hazard associated with eating raw or undercooked oysters? Although they are not life-threatening to individuals, it is best to be aware of the consequences of raw oysters consumption. A recent research found out that serious illnesses may occur from Vibrio vulnificus bacteria. If you are not 100% healthy and are suffering from certain diseases like liver malfunction, diabetes or weak immune system, then it is extremely important to be cautious and be oyster aware. Remember, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.

I'll Make It Up To You

I've been super busy lately. My work demands so much of my time. Sometimes when I get home, I want to lie in bed as soon as I finish changing my working clothes.

On the other hand, a big thank you to those who still visit my blogsite even though I am unable to visit back your page. I will make it up to you guys. You know who you are.

GPS Vehicle Tracking Device


I am sure most of you are very familiar with GPS (Global Positioning System) which are very useful in a lot of ways. One of them is getting immediate emergency road side assistance. Or if you want to plan a road trip with your family and friends, GPS can be of big help with its practical usage in maps navigation and road directions. Well, not all people have this photographic memory (when it comes to remembering road signs, landmarks, etc.) Some don’t have a good sense of direction while driving in the road especially if the place is not very familiar or not traveled often. I admit I am one of those who don’t have such good photographic memory. It so happen that my road direction is very poor. It’s easy for me to get lost when nobody’s sitting in the passenger seat to guide me. That is why GPS is a must but sometimes I can’t rely on it 100%. There’s a possibility of poor connection to the satellite feed where the GPS is situated.


You might be wondering why I’m talking about the importance of GPS. With its limitation when it comes to poor connection, a more advanced GPS technology is now available in the market but more applicable to services and trucking companies. The new product is called GPS Insight Vehicle Tracking System. It is a hardware and software-based vehicle tracking product. Companies, whose employees working on the field most of the time like delivery truck drivers and out of the office employees like sales people and service techs, should take advantage of this great product. Companies don’t have to keep on calling drivers or verifying them to provide their exact location and trip status. Its real time maps give updates every two minutes on vehicle locations to ensure a genuine proof of service which means no more fraudulent hours claimed by the drivers. The most important feature of this is the product’s ability to report to the company on the vehicles’ activity details, fuel consumption, speed violations, vehicle performance, odd hours, geofence violations and more. It also has a GPS Insight support for wiki customers. Qualified companies can avail of the free trial and expect a 30 money back guarantee. The product needs no contract, easy to install, and has the best mapping available. So if you are thinking of your company’s success and a brighter future, try this fantastic management tool. If you want to know more about this product, check the Blog for GPS vehicle tracking.

Virus On My Blog

I was really shocked when I noticed those pop-up ads in almost all my posts. In fact, I can't remember signing up for these ads, websites, whatever you call it. Then I thought of blog virus. So I asked my friend, Pinaysmile about it. She also had it before in her blog and took her awhile figuring out how to get rid of them but successfully got the virus out of her page. Everything seems so high tech nowadays. A blogpage is supposed to be our own private page but still very possible for some people to intrude our privacy. To other bloggers out there, if you happen to become their next victim, just check your html codes (especially in widgets) and remove them right away. When I checked my codes, I saw some unusual codes inserted on them. It is advisable to change your password also just to make sure. That's what I did and it works!

To Pinaysmile, thank you girl for your help. I really appreciate it.

Workaholic Me?

Even though I'm too tired and sleepy right now, I still can't go to bed without visiting my blogsite and browsing my fellow bloggers updates. I will be working overtime tomorrow. They need me to be there by 9:00 am. There's just so many things to do in the office. At least keeping myself busy is better than being a couch potato. Besides, I feel useful and productive. Plus, overtime work pays great! Really great.

A Close Friend Is Leaving

I got some bad news today. One of my close friends here has to move to another state (Arizona). She's the very first Filipina I knew in the area. I met her in a party hosted by a friend who I met through friendster. Of all those people who attended, it's her who I got very close to and got to spend time malling, eating out, shopping, going to the grocery, etc. I'm sure she will be happier living in Arizona because two of her sisters are there. Anyway, life is like that. You can't expect people to stick around because sometimes circumstances keep you apart. It's very true, people just come and go. And now that I'm busy working, we can't hang out anytime we want like we used to. I hope I can make it up to her before she and her family leaves. Too sad but life must go on.

$1 For Vitamins



After a very busy day's work, I went to the mall. While strolling around I met this woman from the Philippines. She's on a tourist visa and visiting her daughter who married an American. We chit chat for awhile then continued my window shopping. One store caught my attention because I noticed a long line of customers in the cash register.

To my amazement, believe it or not these vitamins only cost $1 each. So I bought a lot of them. You might be wondering why I have all these. Well, I'm not planning for suicidal overdose. Instead, I will be sending them to my family, relatives and friends in the Philippines. I know these big bottles of vitamins are so expensive there. That is why I took advantage of the huge sale plus I got to pay only $0.79 cents each since I availed the free card membership. No need to worry about the expiration date. They will still be consumable until 2011!

The Famous Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery

Cosmetic surgery is very common nowadays. Women in general and even some men are not scared anymore to explore the endless possibilities of enhancing oneself. With actors and actresses being so open to the public about their experiences in dealing with their respective cosmetic surgeon and how they got the best results, people have opened their doors to improving their physical appearance as well. Since Hollywood is in California, Los Angeles breast implants are very common especially in Rodeo Drive. I’m sure there are countless models and celebrities who went through these life-changing cosmetic enhancement procedures. Why not? If this will improve the way you feel about yourself, and then why not go for it, right?

Rodeo plastic surgery offers excellent care to their patients. Their main priority is giving their patients outstanding services that they deserve. They have the best surgeons from the finest and prestigious universities in the country and well-trained medical staffs. So you are in good hands. And the most important thing is their state of the art facilities which are thoroughly inspected and certified by the Federal Government to assure the highest level of safety on the patient’s part.

Some of the procedures they specialize are Los Angeles tummy tuck, Mommy makeover , Beverly Hills facelift, breast augmentation and more. So if you are planning one of these procedures, you better put yourself in the most reliable, proven and tested cosmetic surgery center. I have seen a lot of worst results on TV about some people who went to the cheapest doctor but ended up regretting because they did not get the desired results. After the investigation they just found out later that those doctors are not certified and well-trained to do the procedures. It is sad but true. Rodeo drive may not be as cheap as you think but they provide financing options. So if ever you plan to improve your physical beauty, check the website and call for a consultation.

First Day At Work

Thank God, I got a new job offer from Wells Fargo Bank and it started today. I arrived at the building's parking lot around 7:45 a.m. I had mixed emotions. I felt nervous but excited at the same time. Then I went inside the building and looked for the supervisor. A black lady guard greeted me at the reception and dialed the extension line of the person I was looking for. Minutes later two geeky guys came in and were looking for the same person. There must be three new employees including me. While waiting at the lobby, I noticed employees coming in with their very professional look business attire. I did not notice any Asian or Mexican, just Caucasian and black. I hope racial discrimination among other races is not an issue in their corporate culture. Then came the introduction of oneself and meeting with some employees who came in early, the tour in the establishment, and the orientation. I was surprised with my huge cubicle where I will be working. There's so much privacy and space and I have a chair for whoever comes in. The training and brief procedures as well as the discussion of company policies lasted for an hour and then we proceeded immediately with some practice documents. The nature of the job is kind of difficult because it needs focus and keen to details is important. Employees there are so helpful and friendly. It's funny because I got lost in the building after getting my packed lunch which I left in the car. Thanks to the lady guard who assisted me. As she said "It's normal on the first day".

Make Up Tricks?

See how a little make up creates all the difference? That is why it's a must for most women especially these celebrities. When I saw these photos, I can't believe how they look like without these amazing beauty products. They appear so beautiful on advertisements, TV, and magazines but actually they're not as gorgeous as what you think. Well these are their natural beauty. No wonder they have their own make up artist!

I Lost My Phone

I have no choice but to get a new phone today. Too bad I lost it yesterday. Had I known that this would happen, we should have included the insurance in our plan. Well, what can I expect? It would be a miracle if someone found it and will return it to my home address. I'm not sure if there's a good Samaritan out there nowadays. Or at least someone will give me a call and say "hey your cellphone is stolen and I don't have any plan of returning it". LoL. As far as I remember, I checked my phone for new messages or missed calls in the restaurant where my friend and I had our lunch or maybe in the convenience store where my husband and I switched seats in the car and we did not noticed it dropped accidentally. So we have no choice but to extend our 2-year contract and pay a lesser price for a new phone (with insurance this time!).

A Gift From A Senator

My hubby brought these two bottles of strawberry jam from work. He has been working as an engineer in the US Senate for a while now. The nature of his job allow him to meet high profile people and even work with few of them in one of the four senate buildings in Washington DC. This one thoughtful senator handed him these gifts. That is just so nice of him. We were surprised. He deserves the senatorial seat! Such a nice man.

Plastic Surgery

Every time I watch TV, read fashion magazines, or pass by gigantic advertisements and billboards, all I see is images of perfect faces. Hollywood actors and actresses, celebrity models, beauty product endorsers, they all have one thing in common. That is maintaining their good looks and sexy well-toned bodies. That is how they got famous and being idolized by many (aside from having great talents). Flaunting their physical assets and talents allow them to earn really big bucks. You are considered lucky if you are genetically gifted but these so-called perfect genes are not possible for all human beings. Even the most beautiful model has his share of physical insecurities. Most people don’t want to look old and as much as possible they try to delay the effects of aging. That is why plastic surgery is very common nowadays. Although the magic of make up can do tricks and concealment, it is still not enough.

If you are considering a new look, Beverly Hills cosmetic surgery can help you take the first step to a lifestyle enhancement. As what I know plastic surgery could either be reconstructive procedure or cosmetic (also called aesthetic). Beverly Hills plastic surgeons specialize in both procedures. They offer breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, facelift surgery, and other nonsurgical techniques. Their aim is to provide you with exceptional surgical care. We all know this procedure is big deal so it’s better to go see the best doctor. Their on-site deluxe surgery center is equipped with the latest modern facilities and trained staff. Your safety is their number one priority. Worry about the cost? Well, they have created relationships with financial institutions. So you can have the cash right there and then for the procedure and pay only a reasonable amount in a monthly scheme.

Explore the website now and see for yourself the special care they provide to their customers. Who knows that could be you in the future. I might be considering this someday when I get old. I am not closing my doors. I am open to possibilities especially when it comes to staying beautiful.

My Favorite Perfume


I went shopping today with a friend. I tried to look for more working clothes, specifically the professional/business casual look. I was so excited as I entered the store's front door because they have so many sale items. Unfortunately, I can't find the right fit for me. Most apparel/garments they have are designed for typical American women sizes. That's usually my problem when it comes to buying clothes here in the US, it's just so hard to find stuffs for a petite size 4 like me. I did try fitting some clothes on until I got tired going back and forth to the fitting room. I just can't seem to find the perfect fit. While waiting for my friend shopping some kiddie stuffs for her daughter, I went to the perfume section and saw my favorite Lancome Miracle parfum. I immediately grabbed it and proceeded to the cash register. Instead of buying clothes, I ended up purchasing my favorite scent. I really love it! It made my day.

New Backback Design LOL



When I saw this photo I can't help but noticed the white plastic bag loaded with stuffs. Hmmm, I never thought its usefulness as a backpack. I guess this guy is heading for a long walk. I am just amazed how resourceful he is. Or maybe he just wants to carry it this way, not by hand. Kinda cool huh? A new backpack design. So instead of buying a new one, why not recycle used plastic bags? Hehehe...

Liposuction in Beverly Hills

Tired of doing hundreds of sit ups a day and not seeing results? You are not alone. There are just so many people who feel the same. Even if you do a lot of exercise or watch your diet religiously, it’s not easy to get rid those belly fats. Though it’s true that you can loose a lot of body weight when you consistently exercise but it’s still difficult to completely have the dream flat abs you want. I know a friend who is very conscious of her body figure. After pregnancy, she had been doing sit ups for ten years and still can’t shed those unwanted belly fats. She got tired of not seeing the desired result until she decided to give it a try to liposuction. She was completely satisfied with the outcome of the procedure.

Speaking of liposuction, women nowadays are more open to exploring the endless possibilities of the cosmetic world which could make them look more beautiful, sexy and feel best about themselves. While browsing the net, I have come across the famous Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon. That is why it reminds me of my friend who went through the lipo procedure. But the thing is, no matter how safe it is, there will always be risks involve. You might look better and feel good right after the procedure but you will never know the complications it might give you in the future. You just can’t convince everyone to do it. And of course wherever you go or whatever kind of cosmetic services, there will always be cost involve. It does not come cheap I know and the fact that you need to choose the best doctors also. Your life after the operation/procedure greatly depends on these cosmetic surgeons.

So if you are considering one, Beverly Hills liposuction might be the right place for you to go. They also have the famous California tummy tuck. They provide a convenient plastic surgery financing procedure if money concerns you. With their latest and ultra-modern techniques, who knows you might get impressive results that you’ve been constantly dreaming of. Check it out if you want to get rid of those love handles!

"Just Take The First Step"


This photo reminds me of the famous lines of Martin Luther. "Take the first step in faith." "You don't have to see the whole staircase." "Just take the first step." This popular motivational quote really inspires me to achieve my goals and aspirations in life. Goals, success and achievements don't just happen overnight. Along the way, there will be failures and disappointments. It's true when you want to get something or make things happen, you have to work hard for it. You need to invest time on it, a lot of time. Dedication, commitment, hardwork and faith in yourself- if you have all these, nothing is impossible in making your dream a reality. Just a thought for today.

I Made A Good Deal

I busied myself making some posts for my blog when a I got a call from my friend. She told me she was in a furniture store which is very close to my house. I have seen this store everyday but never thought of dropping by to see what's inside. And today, I went there and was surprised how cheap their furniture items are. They sell hotel furniture items which are slightly used. They have entertainment units, decorative mirrors, lamps, sofas, wall frames and a lot more. While looking around, amazed how cheap the items are, I noticed this very nice, leather black computer chair. They sell it for $50 but the owner gave it to me for only $35.00. I decided to buy it for my hubby so he can sit comfortably while playing his favorite games online. He really likes it.

As a person, I really love to travel and exploring new places. It is my passion and I feel a profound joy in traveling.

What's For Dinner?

We bought a seven lbs. whole chicken last week. So I wanted to try my friend's roasted chicken recipe. It took me two and a half hours to finish this very delicious recipe. The meat was very tender and flavorful. I had celery, spring onions, and sweet onion as the stuffing plus half of a tablespoon of salt. I put butter and seasoning all over the chicken skin. My husband loved it. We had a great dinner with lettuce wedge as appetizer. He took the breast part this morning for lunch to work. Hmmm, I wonder why it is his favorite part?

Running A Red Light

Oh my God, I failed to stop in a red light! After having my interview yesterday, I was thinking a lot of things. Will I be hired? Will they call me again for the good news? Did I impress the panel interviewers? These questions bothered me while driving back home. I tried to avoid the highways so I was decided to use the back roads. When I cross the intersection, I noticed the traffic light was red and I continued driving. I know it is a huge traffic violation. I hope there is no red light overhead camera in that intersection. Otherwise, I will have to pay for it and expect a ticket in the mail. Huhuhu...
