Thanks, It’s Back

We’ve been hit by a storm this week and I have to say that it has caused my internet connection’s connectivity to be intermittent.  It made my my surfing and online works very hard that it made me almost crazy hehe.

Due to lack of internet, the good thing is that, I became more productive and creative as I was able to make 2 digi-kits and lots of templates for Artscow. I’ll be releasing those kits in few more weeks. Today, it looks like my net connection is getting better and I’m praying that it will stay.

I can’t Wait for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1

Ok, I admit that it was only this year that I was able to watch Twilight Series and I must saythat I love it. At first, I taught it was just another same old love story but of course I’m wrong. I watched Twilight on TV just the other week and haha after watching it, I decided to rent DVD movies of the sequel.

So in the last few days I have upgraded myself with New Moon and would you believe Eclipse just last night hahaha… Anyway,really looking forward to watch The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 on Nov. 18, 2011 and that is 2 days after my birthday. Now, I’m so intrigued on what will happen next to Edward and Bella. Yay, I can’t wait for November to come..

A Well-Worth Trip

Sis from overseas came home last month for their yearly vacation. This year, I reckon was the best vacation they had simply because they've been too many places during their stay. Plus, the weather cooperated despite the fact that it is rainy seasons now. Their trips were all "sulit" and enjoyable. Mom, who had the opportunity to come with them, have so much stories and experiences that she's been sharing and will remember.

Their trip in Batangas, Tagaytay, Davao, Ilocos all need some walking and strolling, good thing is that they all girls wore womens sandals while the boys had their rubber shoes. They walk with comfort and ease but since mom is already 78 years old, he had some cramps at the end of their trip. Sis and hubby will be going back to work as soon as they arrive in Saudi and will be working hard again to save for their next trip back home. Have a safe trip sis and BIL!

Trying Out Zugo

I’ve always been amazed at how technology evolved through the years. I could not even imagine myself not going online for few days for I’ll feel disconnected to the world. Just some of the benefits that I’ve been enjoying are: connecting to my loved ones via social networks and other means like messenger, etc. plus shopping and purchasing discounts vouchers has never been easy. Not to mention the convenience of paying my bills online at the comforts of my home.

Business owners and online publishers also find the web a good way to promote their products. If you have a business and wanted to increase your exposure, by all means you need to go online. You can even install Zugo toolbar that will help searches and surfing the net much quicker and a good experience for you and your client. Just like Yahoo, Ask and Bing, it’s making our searches about anything more fun and with good results.

Others may think that the toolbar can affect their computers but Zugo toolbars are spyware and adware free and will not have an effect on your machines. The StartNow toolbars are also compatible with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox so you need worry about it.

Back in the Corporate World

My bestfriend is back to the corporate world once again after being a WAHM for 2 years. Actually, she has no plans of going back to work because she’s been enjoying the times she’s been spending with her family plus that fact she can also earn while at home. A former officemate offered her a job that she could not resist and she also needs some extra money for their expenses, she grabbed the opportunity where she can also save a little for her family.

Eventhough she works double time now, commuting everyday just to go to work and seeing all the metal buildings in the city, I guess she has already adjusted being in the work force once again. I know that she grow more in terms of her career and can even earn more money. I just wish her the best of everything and may she found her new work a big help for her.

It Needs a Major Repair ??!

It was a great news when we heard that NAIA3 will be opened on 2006 but it was cancelled due to poor construction that some of the ceiling collapsed yay! Finally, the new airport became fully operational after many years where only few int’l flights and other domestic flights are served because the original NAIA1 was still there.

In 2009, when we flew to Hongkong for a vacation, it was on the airport where we checked in. It was nice, spacious and more presentable than the orig. one and I have no complaints. Just the other week, my sister and her family flew on domestic flight on that same airport and she could not understand why there are leaking water from the ceiling yay! Such a shame and they need to repair it asap for it is embarrassing. I reckon, it needs repair and maybe they can also upgrade some equipments (esp. on the old airport) and get one of the best metal detectors that can help in the operations.

Despite that, if ever I will fly again, I want to use that airport.

Back from their Davao Trip

My sister and her family plus my mom went on a 4-day vacation in Davao last July 5 – 8 and they are finally home just last night. Fortunately, the weather was good at the time of their vacation despite some heavy downpour in the afternoon. I got so envy everytime they post pictures of their trip on Facebook and wished that I have come with them on this trip.

They’ve been eating endlessly, trying out different restos in the town and oh boy they’ve even tasted CROCODILE meat unknowingly lol. Only my bro and other companion knew it so it was a surprise for my sister and her children to learn that they’ve eaten a crocodile!! lol. In fairness, they said it was so good and they didn’t suspect that it was other meat products. I bet they will not eat it when they learn that it’s a crocodile.

My sister and her whole family have big appetite so I will not wonder if they ate with so much delight while they are there. It will not be a surprise also if they will be looking for diet pill that works fast because they’ve become glutton for 4 days. They have tons of pasalubongs (gifts) from their trip and that includes the famous sweet suha (pomelo) and durian candies.

Home Improvements for this Year

Just last summer, my brother had their kitchen and living room floorings renovated. It was time to replace their old vinyl tiles as they have cracks already and the colors are just way too dated and dirty. Thankfully, a nearby home depot had their anniversary sale, so they were able to score some nice tiles that they had installed. The job went about for a week or so and eventhough it was dusty and their house became messy due to the renovation, it was all worth it.

Now, they have new shining floors that are also easy to clean and I bet it will last for many years if properly taken cared of. With the renovations that were done at my bro’s house, I was also inspired to have our house done as well. Actually, we’re just on the other door as our house is a duplex. I’m planning to have our living room, kitchen and also my room painted before Christmas as what I’ve promised to my mom.

The make-over will not be complete if I will not be buying or replacing some furniture. I’m eyeing a nice living room lighting fixture and a new contemporary coffee table that I saw online. Pretty sure it’ll match our beige sofa and the white walls. Finding sleek and contemporary furniture for our homes are easier now, thanks to manufacturers that are coming up with their latest styles and designs for modern homes. 24/7 Shop at Home has wide array of products not only for the living room but also for dining, kitchen and more.

Thinning Hair

I have to admit that lately, I’ve been bothered by my thinning hair. Actually, I have thick and coarse hair but maybe because of coloring my hair or due to stress my hair near my forehead is starting to get thinner. It's already unsightly too to see when I try to put my hair up as it has some bald spots already.

I'm afraid that in the future I'll be needing some hair loss products to cure it. A friend also told me to use a natural or organic shampoo and conditioner because she thinks that my shampoo maybe to harsh for my hair. Oh dear, I need to address this problem or else I might end up with bald spots on my head.
