My Companion

I have been busy lately with my digital designing stuff and I have released about 14 digital papers just yesterday. Wow, that is record breaking! I can make about 1 or 2 sets but not 14! I'm super inspired the other to make all those papers. My creative juices are just overflowing so I just took advantage of it. While working, my all time companion is non other than music! Oh yes... I just open my Spotify account and choose whatever albums that I want depending on my mood. It's always a good companion of mine as I become more inspired to work and I don;t get bored while working.

Right now, I'm listening to some sappy and sentimental songs that I follow and the selections where are all good. Makes me in love and inspired :). Music sets our mood and just thinking about the vocalist and the men behind every song, it makes me wonder and be at awe at their talent. The drummer, the guitarist, keyboardist and more all play important role in making a song. Even if you are using a korg taktile or even not so-expensive instrument, if you put your heart and soul to it, I guess it will also turn out beautifully.

Loving Bobbie Nail Polish

I love having pretty nails as it can add more beauty to my over all appearance. Lately, I want to try different shades of colors because I'm already bored with the same old red shades on my nails. This time I want some colors.

Bought these bobbie nail polish at SM store and oh boy, I want to take all the colors available but I'm sure I will not be able to use them soon. Once it is open and it will not be used for long peroids of time, the polish will harden..

Here are just few colors that I can't wait to use the periwinkle color. .. yay! It will match the blouse that I bought too.

It's Never Too Early to Shop

Just like what I have said on my previous post, Christmas will be coming soon in no time. What a wonderful time for family gathering and giving gifts during this season. I might have to shop early this year for Christmas gift and I think I will start as early as end of October and 1st week of November.

Online shopping has gone so far these past few years and more people are using this method buying stiff for themselves and loved ones. It's easier to shop online too and with various stores available shoppers have many options to choose. Not only on regular stores where you can see bargain or discounted items but also online. You can find promo codes like this woodwind brasswind promo code where you can get discount on various musical instruments, that are perfect for music lovers.

BER Months

Wow.. I can't believe it .. it's already half way of SeptemBER.. and soon December will be here once again. It's only in the Philippines where people got excited when BER months come because it only means that Christmas and other holiday will come. I'm pretty sure that most of us want to celebrate Christmas.

Christmas is the time for family reunion, old classmates' gathering and time to be with our friends and relatives. Though during holidays it can mean more spending because of gifts to buy and also places to explore .. but nothing beats the feeling of happiness it can give.

Our family always gather during Christmas time and it's always a grand reunion for all of us where we can be together though 2 of my sisters and their family are living overseas now. There are times that they go home for holiday vacation. It was in 2013 where we are all complete (sans my dad who dies in 1989 already) and it was a blast.

Hoping for a grand Christmas time again this year.

How To Choose A Great Alcohol Treatment Program

Having alcohol problem is something that you should never be ashamed of. We need to acknowledge the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of people that are now rehabilitated and that have no problems in dealing with this addiction. The truth is that alcohol treatment is possible and that you can get the help that you need.

The problem is that not all the alcohol treatment programs are great. Some are actually pretty bad. It is important that you learn how to choose the one that will actually help you to kick the bad habit. With this in mind, even if we do not have a problem with alcohol, we should all know the characteristics of that great program. We never know when a friend will need our help.

What Should An Alcohol Treatment Program Include?

A great addiction treatment clinic will offer much more than physical and mental restraints that stop people from drinking in the future. There are many advertisements that will appear and the focus is normally put on the amenities offered by the clinic. In reality, other facts are much more important.

Whenever you consider alcohol treatment programs, make sure that you think about the following factors:
•  Proper Licenses And Accreditations – you want to be 100% sure that the alcohol treatment programs are going to be state accredited. At the same time, licenses have to be in place. As an extra, be sure that you focus on the staff. You want to be sure that there are good addiction specialists and mental health professionals that are hired.

•    Treatment Method Effectiveness
– the treatment center has to show you some success rate statistics. The best statistics are always offered by an outside agency that is objective.

•    Aftercare Services –this is a factor that many forget about but that is incredibly important. There is a need to have some sort of aftercare program that is well-run. If not, the program should at least have some referrals to support groups and recovery services that are very good and that would work with the alcohol treatment program the patient would go through.

Alcohol Treatment Program Types:
•    Residential treatment – the patient will live at the facility while going through alcohol rehab treatment. This can take up to 3 months.
•    Partial hospitalization treatment –when a stable living condition exists but partial hospitalization is necessary.
•    IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program)
–major time commitment is needed but the program is not live-in.
•    Counseling – this basically works better as a follow-up support.
•    Sober living – a highly intensive program like the residential treatment.
•    Brief intervention – a program that is only appropriate in the event that there is an individual that is at risk of developing alcoholism or alcohol abuse.

As you can see, have patience and always read everything that you can about the considered treatment option. You never actually know what is the best so do be sure that you will consider everything that is available and that you will compare options in order to gain exactly what is needed for the individual.

Why Is Oral Hygiene And Teeth Cleaning Important?

When you smile and your teeth are white and shiny, you do like it more. People that look at you smile will simply like you better. However, when you have a lack of interest associated with teeth brushing, the texture of the teeth ends up being changed. Teeth that are unclean will normally be filled with bacteria and germs. You end up with foul odor, decay, disarray and much more. Every single person that has bad oral hygiene needs to deal with dozens of huge problems as time passes.

It is vital that you maintain oral hygiene. Unfortunately, there are many that either forget about this or simply do not know how important everything is. It is not that difficult to clean your teeth and the truth is that it is never too late to avoid the trip to the dentist.

If you wonder why oral hygiene is so important, here are the most common reasons that have to be mentioned, based on the experience of Desert Palm Dentistry.

Cavity Control
Cavities are also referred to as tooth decay or caries. They are a huge problem that appears because teeth are invaded by bacteria. In really simple terms, bacteria end up eating teeth. As an immediate result, the tooth simply breaks down.

The initial sign that a cavity will appear is a yellowish, brown or black spot that appears on the tooth. After some time, the tooth will start to feel painful and holes eventually appear in the teeth that are affected. When you brush your teeth every night and every night, cavities do not appear.

Saving Money
This is one of the reasons that few people actually know about. As you brush teeth regularly, you manage to save a lot of money. When you go to the dentist, the costs associated with fixing teeth problems are pretty high. If you do not need dental treatment, you save so much money. Future expenses can be avoided by simply brushing your teeth.

You Do Not Lose Teeth
Tooth loss control is a huge advantage of maintain proper oral hygiene. You surely do not want to lose your teeth. The main reason why a tooth is lost is gum disease. As the disease advances, your jaw line loses support. Teeth end up loosened or simply fall out.

Now Mouth Odor

When oral hygiene is low, bad odors start appearing inside the mouth. Foul smells are basically really bad and it is easy to understand why. Self-confidence can go down and in many cases the odors simply do not disappear because of poor oral hygiene. Regularly brush and your mouth will remain fresh. Odor problems will be alleviated and your self-confidence will be high.

A Beautiful Smile

The last thing that we should mention is that when you maintain proper oral hygiene, teeth will be whiter and will not have problems like cavities. You will end up with a much more beautiful smile. Why not take advantage of such a possibility? Every person in the world wants a better looking smile.

Rainy Days are Here

It's official rainy season is here already in our part of the world. It started last week and just today it rained so hard this afternoon. Worse is that my laundry woman washes our clothes today. The end result, still wet clothes on the hangers.

Rainy seasons usually starts end of May and up to September=October though there are days when there still rain in November. I just prayed that no major floods that will happen anymore. We feared that Ondoy type of flooding will happen again and that will be a major disaster.

Thankfully, mom already had our roof replaced and our roof gutters cleaned last summer and that means we are ready for the rainy season. Hope all will be safe this season as we heard that this year there will be La Nina.

A Fun and Happy TV show

When at home while working on my graphic designing, I also have the time to watch news and other shows even while working. TV is on while working and it serves as my background sound or music. Today, mom is at home early and as usual she wants to watch her fave afternoon show, wowowin a local game tv show that gives a lot of money to their contestants. Though the shouts and screams of the people are deafening, I can hide the fats that the show is rating and well loved by their fans.

The sound effects that seemed like they use david gilmour amp or whatever on the show and the energetic host and co-hosts make the show lively.The show obviously have a lot of sponsors that is why they can give a lot of prizes. No wonder the show is flocked by people from provinces because of the happiness, prizes and laughter that the show can bring.

Australian Vacation about to End

I was fortunate to have been given an Australian visa once again last year. The visa is valid for 3 months stay with no work, no further stay but with minimum of study for 3 months.

Since my sister and her family is having a vacation at the end of year last year, they booked my flight last Nov. 22 and I flew immediately. I was so happy to  be back again in Australia after 8 long years since I have been here. I love the country, the people, the way of life and more.. so I was excited that my visa was approved.

It was my first time to experience Christmas and New Year in Australia and it's very different from what I am used to in the Philippines. I can't say that I love it because it was just like an ordinary day except for the joy in opening of the gifts.

With the 3 months that I have been here, i have explored a lot of places like beaches, churches, restaurants, shopping malls and more and I love it.

Wishing there will be another year that I will be here. I love Australia and I will dearly miss it very soon..
