The kids (my nieces and nephews) enjoyed receiving and opening their gifts while I enjoyed giving the gifts that I have for my godchildren who came to visit me on Christmas day. It's only every year when I get to see them and I'm amazed on how they have grown so much. I even have a godchild who is a 1st year college student now but he still visits me every year. Hahaha, I guess even if he's already married he'll still visit me to get his gift..lol
The blessings that I got for this year is overflowing so it's also best to share it to my loved ones. I'm praying that 2013 bring new luck, hope and work. I just wish that there'll be no major calamities wherein so many lives has been taken.

|LJ and CJ: Winners of the 1st Amazing Race Phlippines |
image from tv5.com.ph
They are very competitive to think that they didn't have the chance to be in the first place ever in any leg. I think the last leg really made them won! CJ was great doing the roadblock wherein she needs to put all the proper regions in order. CJ also didn't gave up eventhough she fell many times riding the motorbike. It was a team effort and just like in many other Amazing Race, you'll never know who'll win for there are many possibilities that will happen along the way.
MARC and KAT got the 3rd place, surprising too because they have been winning 1st place on many legs. Marc got stranded for more than 3 hours at one roadblock and that made Kat lost her eagerness to race.
I enjoyed watching Amazing Race Philippines and hoping to watch more future seasons.

The other day, I was in need of my cold medicine asap when I stopped by a small pharmacy at our neighborhood. It looks like the store doesn't have much medicines in stock and their shelves looks a bit filthy and disarray. I guess it's easy for them to get an idea of pharmacy design from mfried.com so their store will look more presentable. I didn't like what I saw and I thought their meds might be outdate also that's why I just went to a bigger and well known pharmacy eventhough it means that I will travel quite few more meters just to go there.

Anyway, hello December- the busiest, merriest, fun-filled, pocket draining month of the year! I woke up on a cold morning and as soon as I opened my eyes I know that God has blessed me another day and hopefully more days to witness Christmas this year.
I'm already planning our Christmas Eve and Christmas day meals and I have bought some gifts that I shopped few weeks ago. However, our Christmas tree is not yet up.. yay! I'm hoping that this coming week, we'll be able to decorate already.
Christmas is only 24 more days and actually, I already saw some kids singing Christmas songs on some houses and just few hours ago, carolers are singing in front of our house .Yay!

I'm still going to retain the color theme and probably the header for a while since I have no time to replace it. In the meantime, I'll just change the layout and find a 2 column template for now.

Kids are just too exuberant all the time. Their energy seems endless and I just wish all kids had the opportunity to be carefree, playful and full of life.
Watch this video and who knows you might have done one of the them hehe.
Some of the dumb ways to die that was in the cartoons video are:
1. Set your hair on fire
2. Drink medicine that is out of date
3. Invite a psycho into your home
4. Take off your helmet on the outer space
5. Dive in a water full of piranha
6. Dress up like a moose during the hunting season
The party was a blast! Seeing all my batchmates and co-interns back then bring so much memories of my college days. Ahhh.. it was a bliss!
So I'm smart huh, coz I read it hehe.. What about you?

Any one can pursue a career in beauty or cosmetology bec. aside from getting lots of supplies for your salon, you can hone your craft by going to schools that are sprouting anywhere. With experienced trainers and high quality services of the cosmetology schools that you can pick, there’s no wonder that you can bring cosmetology to a whole new level.
If mom still continued her beauty career, I guess still have a salon up to now.

It’s been so many years now and our house was not the same when we first got in. There are also some minor repairs that need to be done. Mom noticed the leaking faucet at the restroom while I saw the door leading to our backyard need some repair as well. These problems need to be address immediately so that they will not become worse.
The re-painting of the wall on all the rooms was done this summer and I’m so happy to have accomplished that home project of mine. Right now, my mom and Ireally need to consider changing the tiles in our kitchen for the chips and the discolorations are already unsightly to see.
I still need to have an ample budget for tile replacement and it’s already impossible for me to have this done before the year ends. If things will go smoothly, by summer (April or May) and if I have saved enough, I’ll have this new project push through. In the meantime, browsing at lmgtile.com for flooring and tile inspirations is what I’m planning to do. I also need to consult a friend who has a knowledge about floor tiling.
Keeping my fingers crossed that we’ll have this done by next year.
I'm so lucky to have met them!
|Byko's 1st Birthday at Oasis Manila|
Sophie has indeed made my life fun, meaningful and a little less boring. Being single with no kid of my own, I regard my dog Sophie as my daughter just like what other dog lovers do when they love their dogs or pets so much. My day is not complete without seeing her wagging tail and when she lies down on her back to get a belly rub.. so cute! I can also feel that she’s returning the love that I give to her.
I truly am happy that she has come to my life and I just pray that she’ll spend more time we us. I know that time will also come when she will leave me but I am not prepared for that yet. Who will ever be, anyway?
|Sophie - Oct. 2011|
|Sophie August 2012- few days after her grooming|
With all the love that I share and get from my dog Sophie, now, I can’t picture my world without her.
Nothing spectacular about my birthday unlike when I celebrated my 18th birthday many years ago. I'm just happy that eventhough I have many misgivings to many people, God still loves me and continuously showering me with all his blessings.
Photos will be posted soon!

My niece R made these cute drawings in our living room while waiting for her mom to come from office. At first she was so bored and irritated because she has nothing to do. I gave her some papers and a pen where she can scribble so that she will not complain and bug me and after a while she showed me about 6 pieces of drawings with different outfits.
I praised her for making good drawings and of course she was so happy about her works. I told her to put her name and date on the drawings because I will compile all of them so that when she gets older, I'll show her early works.
She keeps on telling us that she wanted to be a clothes designer someday that's why she love to draw girls with different costumes. She must have been inspired with all the fashion cartoons that she's been seeing on TV and DVDs. Not bad at all.
|Princess and Egyptian|
Check out her past drawings here.
Our group expanded, not just digi-scrappers but other friends of friends came. We moved to Twitter and our group expanded more, we are more like 21 member friends. Since then our group bonded via eat out, movie time, shopping time, birthday of kids, out of town vacation and whole lot more.
I'm so happy with the gift of friendship brought by our group and it gave my social life more fun and exciting. I wish we can continue our friendship for more years to come, even when their kids are all grown up already!

These days, I have not seen any similar liking from my nieces and nephews but some can play the guitars as well. I'm also wishing I can play any instrument but I guess I'm not passionate over that. A son of my friend loves playing the drums and with that he was even gifted by a drum set that he can use to play. My other friend's children are into piano and violin and wish they'd continue that love until they get old.

There are just too many spams and hoax e-mails that I get everyday and this Hoax Paypal E-mail: Your Paypal Account Has Been Limited is one of them.
I always get this kind of e-mail and never I will click the link that they will ask me to sign in and update my profile. I know this is a HOAX, and phishing e-mail that crooks online are doing.
Look closely at the the e-mail of the sender, it’s not even from paypal so this is NOT TRUE. Funny thing also is that they sent this e-mail that is not even my paypal e-mail so it’s another red flag.
So, don’t just click on e-mails coming from unknown source. Please be careful because you don’t want your Paypal got hacked, right?

I'm sure my cousin and I will have lunch or dinner somewhere and I hope she'd take me to shopping as well..lol I know that she'll love that too. I might have to ask her to take me at Bonifacio High Street for i have not been there yet.
So thankful for all the blessings I've been receiving. This week, it's gonna be a busy one for me as I have quite a lot of online works to do. That only means that I need to put on extra effort everyday so I can beat the deadline. It is seldom that works come all at the same time so I need to make the most of it. Ohhh..I have lots of ideas and things on my mind but sometimes my hands are not that fast to type.
I know after all the hardwork that I have done I deserve a vacation or shopping hehe!

Adgitize before, now its Entrecard! It’s just so sad to know that Entrecard has closed down/ I know that many bloggers all around the world feel the lost. Actually, I just gave Entrecard a second chance when I came back using it just about 2 months ago. With my desire to increase my traffic and improve my alexa ranking on my blogs that’s why I decided to re-install the tool and it’s widget on all my blogs again.
I was “dropping” actively for the last months and happy to see that my blogs are improving but hey the site was gone without warning. I noticed on Sept. 19th that I could not login at my entrecard toolbar and their widget is down. Anyway, I think everything has an end and it’s Entrecard’s time to say goodbye.
I already uninstalled my Entrecard toolbar today and I’ll be removing all their widgets on my blogs.

It's amazing how God can turn our lives, it can be a 360 degrees turn but of course those turns are also the result of our own decision.
I noticed that ENTRECARD has been down for several days now and I’m already wondering if they are down or gone forever. I’ve been a member of the Entrecard community for the past years and that is where I got some of the traffic. There are also active and efficient EC droppers from my blogs and seeing EC gone is sad.
I searched this morning if Entrecard is down for good and it looks like that it is.. I just read it at Dave Lucas’ post.
I still wish it’ll be back!

If you are aren’t aware, 2 of my brothers are visual artists and from time to time they paint or do some other art form. It’s innate in them to make creations out of anything. They can turn old stuff into new and unique stuff.
Just the other day, I saw bro cutting woods and drilling some holes in them. I asked what he is doing and it turned out that he is going to make a wood sculpture. There will be art competition coming up and he thought of this.
I think it’s over a week already when I saw him polishing and drilling the woods. He even uses different kinds of screws and hex nuts for this project. This is the unfinished project and I’m sure it’ll be done in few more days. I just hope he’ll get a place at the competition.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who uses music to comfort myself for I know a lot of people love to listen to music all the time not only to comfort them but it's already their hobby or job. A good friend of mine even bought a new guitar at a local shop that he can use when they have church service or when he practice his songs.

My sister and I bonded together as we painstakingly go through the racks at Big W, Target, David Jones etc. Sis always took me to a store where there is also a sale and I remember my sister hoarding some clothes and toys for her kids at Big W and put them on lay-by. I had some few purchases as well but there are times that I need to convert the prices to our currency to see if I really got a good deal. My shopping experience was highlighted when we went at the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney where you can find upscale brand stores such as Versace, Polo, DKNY and more. Even though we did not buy expensive products, yet it was an awesome feast on our eyes.
These days, shopping is even made easy using the internet. In Australia, Lasoo.com.au comes in handy for many Australian shoppers as they can easily browse all the various catalogues of different department stores all at the same time and see what they offer. Searching by category, brands, retailers and even catalogues that include Big W, Crazy Clarks, Myer, The Reject Shop and clark rubber catalogue just to name a few will make your shopping even faster.

At home, I just did some household chores, spend more time on my social networking sites' accounts and do some online works. Actually, I have too much ideas on my minds or things that I wanted to do but there's too much distractions. I can't keep myself to focus on one thing today for I wanted to a lot of things. Like they say, when you multi-task chances are the end result is not that good because you are not giving your 100% attention to one task because your attention is divided. It's like putting a stanchion or barrier on your mind as it can control free-flowing ideas.
My day was spent online, house chores and watching TV esp. about the death of Sec. Robredo. I hope tomorrow will be a lot different as I want to be more productive unlike today.

Today, I spent most my time watching videos on You Tube because my work load is not that heavy. This is one of the things that I do to rest or unwind a little bit so I will not get bored at my work. I was specifically glued watching videos of dogs being rescued and there are times, I can’t help myself crying for the poor dogs who are mistreated and abandoned.
I’m a dog lover and it makes me sad to see dogs who are left alone on the streets, dying, starving and no one taking care of them because their former owners dumped them for many reasons. Ahhh.. it’s breaking my heart!
I’ve been following videos from ELDAD HAGAR, animal protector/rescuer for a while now and I have to say that he has a wonderful and golden heart for saving animals. There are so many animal rescues that he did and this rescue video of FIONA made me cry so hard. Fiona is blind and was living in the filthy streets. Arghhh…
Watch her story and for sure it’ll make you cry as well. The good thing is that she is now well, can see and have been adopted.
I was so moved and touched by Eldad’s love for the animals and even made a small donation at HOPE FOR PAWS hopeforpaws.org, an Animal Rescue Organization. You can also donate so that they can help these poor dogs get a second life.
I also have downloaded just today their “OUR LIVES HAVE GONE TO THE DOGS: Second Edition” book for free on my computer but I’m not yet through reading all the wonderful stories there.
I’ll be continuously following all the wonderful rescue videos on their YouTube channel and I hope they will not get tired of rescuing dogs. Thanks to the wonderful people who are saving animals esp. dogs.
Education is a precious gift that we can give to ourselves, so as much possible if we have the opportunity, we should take that chance to study for we can all benefit from it. It’s sad to say that some students don’t take studying or going to school seriously but later in life they will realize the value of being educated even if you’re not a master degree holder.
These days, we should try to be patient in teaching the kids to study for there are many distractions already. Some maybe distracted with TV, iPad and different gadgets, computer games and more that is why they lose focus in studying. We need to set rules in the house such as time to play and time to study so that kids will know their boundaries. Also, as much as possible, let’s make the studying area neat and conducive in studying by removing the distractions away from them. Kids will follow as long as you talk to them nicely and tell them about what is good for them.
Degree of learning for kids is not all the same. Some kids learn fast while some kids tail behind or simply some are slow learners. We do not need to force them to learn something quick if we think and feel that kid needs a little more push. However, we cannot blame parents to push their kids to learn more for they want them to excel.
For some parents who are having a hard time teaching their kids with their school works or if their kids have some difficulties on certain subjects in school, this is where tutoring programs be of help. Tutoring is one-on-one and that can be done at the time you preferred that is why it is also convenient and beneficial. If your child needs help with English, School Tutoring Academy can help in reading comprehension, spelling, grammar, reviews and more. Math subject can be a challenge as well, that’s why learning math for some students need special attention.
Let us help students acquire and strengthen their skills though education that they deserve to have.

Outside my window… it’s so gloomy and raining because of Typhoon Helen that is battering northern part of the country.
I am thinking…of doing some digi-layouts tonight after finishing some of my online works.
I am thankful for… that we are not affected by the resent floods brought about by the torrential monsoon rain.
From the kitchen… our dinner is ready already. I cooked Pork Sinigang for lunch and there are many leftovers so that is what we’ll be having tonight.
I am wearing… my fave red/dark pink duster in the house.
I am creating… new layouts for my Project 366 for 2012. I’m also half way done on my summer digi-kit.
I am going…to finish drinking my ginger tea that I’m having.
I am reading… some blog entries of my friends via Google reader.
I am hearing… the sound of TV show “Sharon”, which is on right now.
Around the house…mom is watching TV, Sophie is outside.
One of my favorite things…my iPhone.
A picture I love: My dear sweet Sophie after eating her breakfast yesterday. I put a shirt on her because it’s cold because of the rain.
My 79 yr.-old mom definitely has a green thumb for she’s good in growing plants and gardening. Her love for plants and trees can be attributed to her father (my grandpa) who is a farmer back then. Grandpa used to plant rice and many vegetables at the field that he has been renting for many years back when he was still alive. I’m sure mom was exposed to planting activities that’s why it’s not unusual that she acquired grandpa’s planting skills.
Mom has a small garden in our front yard where she kept neat all the time. I often see her working on her garden planting, removing weeds, watering her plants/trees or just keeping the area clean. Right now, we have fruit trees (atis, mango and papaya) and many plants that look so healthy and well taken cared of.
If given the chance or if my sched would permit, I’d love the idea of toiling the soil and getting dirty as well especially now that flowering plants and herbs can be ordered easier at the nursery or even online just like at The Growers Exchange. It’s a great place for those who love gardening for they can find wide array of plants and supplies. Even those living in condos or don’t have enough space to grow plants will have no more reason not to plant because there are pots or containers where you can grow them. There are many plants that you can also grow indoors therefore making your house “green”.
Soon, I would love to have this Artichoke 'Imperial Star' flower in our backyard. I hope mom will plant one or if not I’ll try my hand in gardening too.
Oh dear, this bed weather is making me sooooo lazy. The monsoon rain just passed and now typhoon HELEN just came in the country since last week. It’s been raining continuously and I just hope this storm will not leave too much destructions.
I’m also having some back and hip pains for the last 2 days now and I believe it is due to prolonged sitting in the chair while using my computer. Aside from that, I believe it is caused by my wrong position in bed while I’m sleeping because I woke up with back pains too. arghhh..
Today, I decided to do some exercise and I started it with some good stretching when I get up from my bed. Later on, I opened my pc and searched some zumba dance moves on Youtube and I found some that I followed.
I did some dancing for 30 mins and that already made me feel good and light. I have not done it in a while so this is refreshing. I feel energized afterwards even if I didn’t sweat a lot. I just need to do this more often so my sedentary lifestyle will be broken again.
A very good friend of mine has ventured into business. She’s been telling me about opening a loading store where she can sell pre-paid cellphone/internet or game cards, cellphone loads and other service that involves cellphones. I’m just so happy for her because she finally had her dreams come through. Being a friend, I’ll support her all the way, I even made some small signage just a short bond paper sizes to get her started.
The business opened just few weeks ago and I heard that it’s doing well because the location is a busy area, which is very good. I also advised her to make a big tarpaulin for her business name and another one for the services that she offered. Those signage can attract more customers to come to her store.
Word-of-mouth is good but nothing beats if you’ll make your store be known through advertising or marketing. I have been seeing a lot of companies or stores doing all sorts of advertisements from giving away flyers, brochures, business cards etc. just to make their business known. These days, business owners need not worry where to order their brochures, posters etc. because they can even order online already. Conquest Graphics, an online printing company offers wide range of quality and affordable printing services. Don’t be left behind, advertise your company or store not just online on sites/blog and social networking sites but also via traditional forms of advertisement.
I know my friend’s business will prosper in no time as long as she’ll put her heart and dedication on it plus if she needs to know her customers’ needs.

Here’s the part 2 of the Google Doodle’s tribute to of 2012 Olympic Games. I patiently waited at their site everyday to see what they have come up for the day.
This is their tribute to the CLOSING CEREMONY of the 2012 Olympic Games that ended August 12, 2012 at the Olympic Stadium. Millions of people witnessed the magnificent get together of athletes around the world. 2016 Olympics will be held in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
As a homeowner, I have so many things that I wanted to be done at our home. Since our house was built in the early 80’s it is no wonder that it is already prone to damages and house problems already. There are times that we need to put sealant on the leaking roof, change roof gutters and even replacement and repair of some cabinets.
Just this year, a mini makeover was done at our house. I have our walls repainted again as it looks dirty or not appealing anymore. You see the signs of wear and tear as well so I decided to have it painted even though it costs me quite a lot. It was a massive work done, as our workers also need to assist us in moving almost all the furniture and other stuff in all the rooms. The house was a mess for a month but the result was very satisfactory for we have also done a major cleaning. Since our house was re-painted again, I bet it will take another 5 years or so to have it done again.
After that mini makeover, my home project is never ending for I have already put replacement of flooring on my list this time. I know it will take time for me to save up for that but at least I have a good start now by researching online and even getting suggestions or ideas from friends.
Our old vinyl tiles have shown wear and tear already. The edges are chipped off already and the beige color tuned into almost brown shade albeit thorough cleaning. It saddens me every time I see our floor but since the flooring industry has come a long way, I know there are new products that I can buy the next time I start our flooring replacement.
While browsing the Internet for ideas about flooring, I came across Carpet One, where I saw different kinds of flooring materials such as vinyl, laminate http://www.emersoncarpetonebatonrouge.com/laminate-flooring, hardwood, carpet and tiles. I am kinda liking the laminate flooring for it looks great and has heaps of grain and finish color that can match the theme of our house. The prices are also competitive and there are quite a number of brands to choose from. If the time comes for me to start my another home project, I know I have a good flooring source to get our supplies. Should you be renovating or just building your new house Carpet One is a good option to select.

Google Doodles have been making tributes to people or events all the time and since The London Olympics 2012 is still going on, here is the Google Doodles Tribute to 2012 London Olympic Games. I always wait for Google page all the time to see what doodle they will come up each time and here are just some. I will post more Google Doodles that I have captured.

While I was going through some photos on our old album the other day, I can’t help myself but to miss my grandmother (mother-side) when I saw our old photos. She was hardworking and can still manage to sell her homemade condiments in our neighborhood even though we told her not to work anymore because she’s old already. She did not die because of a major ailment or disease but it’s probably due to her old age where her body can’t function well anymore. She left us at age 93 and if would have been nice if she can stay for more years but it’s already God’s will.
When she can no longer walk properly or take care of herself, her daughter who never married is mostly on her aid. Aunt bathes her and assists her in so many ways without hesitation. It’s like giving back all the love that grandma showered her children when they are still young. Of course, at times we also give our support in whatever we can.
In no time, it’ll be my turn to take care of my mom. She is turning 80 this year but she’s still strong, mobile and quite healthy though her blood pressure tends to shoot up at times. When the time comes when she can no longer do things on her own like going to the comfort room, I know it’ll be a good help to put the MoliCare comfort plus briefs on her for her comfort. In addition, there are also some helpful products that we can now purchase at www.parentgiving.com like mobility devices, medical supplies, beddings etc. just in case you need some stuff for your elderly at home.

Today, our country is faced with yet another calamity. The heavy down pour of monsoon rains made the Manila, Quezon City, Marikina City and nearby provinces such as Rizal, Cavite and more submerged in water.
Here are the emergency nos. that you can call if you have concerns. Be safe everyone. EVACUATE NOW, if you are in danger already because PAG-ASA said that it will still rain the whole day today.
If you have something to donate like food, clothing and more you can call these numbers as well.
I checked out google.com today and look it has an interactive game of hurdles. It’s cute hahaha. I played it and my best time so far is 24.0 seconds. I will try again later to beat my time..lol
Try it before they change their page tomorrow.
I’m praying for the safety of my friends and relatives plus all the other families who are experiencing difficult times now.
Monday, August 6, 2012
Oh my gosh, it’s been raining non-stop for 2 weeks now! Right now, rain is not stopping and there are floods everywhere. PAG-ASA is already on RED ALERT and that means that evacuation is already needed on families living on low lying areas and esp. those near rivers or creeks.
Actually there’s no storm right now but the LPA (low pressure area) plus the monsoon rains are the culprit. I also heard on the news that the LAMESA dam is already on it’s spilling level that’s why there’ll be high levels of water now.
Be safe everyone! Evacuate if you are in danger areas.
I guess when summer comes again, I need to condition myself going with my friends hiking.
Thursday, August 2, 2012
The start of the new month for me is not quite good as I’m not feeling good since yesterday. It’s been raining for the fast few days because of the weather disturbance brought about by Typhoon Gener. Classes in many place have been cancelled due to flooding but fortunately our area is on a higher ground.
I have a slight fever with weak muscles yesterday morning but didn’t mind it that much but in the afternoon I felt different so I took a medicine and drink my fave ginger tea with honey. I also made myself warm when I slept last night and good thing that I woke up feeling fine already.
The weather is still crazy today and all along I thought I'm good already but here I am feeling weak and about to throw up. Yay!
Oh I hate being sick!

I’m a Nokia mobile phone fan for many years and I never thought that I’d switch to another brand. When the iPhone craze started few years back, even if I wanted to join the iPhone bandwagon, still I could not afford to buy one.
Lots of iPhone 3gs phone users upgraded their phones when iPhone 4 and 4s were released. Few friends sold their units and that is the only time that I bought a pre-loved phone that I’m using now.
I have to say goodbye to my reliable Nokia for that has served me for years and used iPhone already. I even bought lots of iphone cases and accessories to make my phone more fun to use. Now, I’m loving my iPhone especially the apps that I have downloaded in it.

The opening ceremonies of London Olympics 2012 was held on July 27, 2012 and it was broadcast live in our country very early morning (around past 12 am) of July 28, 2012. London already the Olympic Games in 1908, 1948 and now 2012 and they are the only city that have hosted the Olympics 3x.
I woke up at around 6 am and when I turned the TV at TV5 on the Opening ceremony is already starting. I think it was the Japan delegates that are marching in the stadium. I hurriedly get up and watched it more because of course I don’t want to miss our country’s delegates.
Here is the Philippines’ delegate (only 11 athletes made it on the Olympics)
It’s really exciting to watch the ceremony and even if I’m not an athlete or I’m not physically there to witness it, I got teary eyed and I could feel the excitement there. I’m sure the feeling is much more different.
The Olympics flame
I’ll be following some of the games esp. the swimming, volleyball, archery and gymnastics events.
Last night before I went to sleep, rain started to fall making it more conducive to sleep. I went to bed unusually early at around 10 pm but watched TV first before hitting the dreamland. I was awakened by by loud sound of the rain and I believe that was 1 am already. Geez, the rain never stops.
Today, it’s still gloomy and I’m not sure of mr. sun will show up later in the day. I’ll be attending the combined baptismal and 7th birthday of my cousin's children before lunch time and I’m just praying that it’ll not rain just like last night.
I started the day watching the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics and the show was awesome. I’m also working today because I need to finish some online works. I’m so grateful for all the blessing that God has been showering to me ever since I started blogging in 2007.I also have to do a research about the equote term life insurance since my cousin keeps on telling me about it.
I’m also going to man our Internet café later in the afternoon after the occasion that I’ll be attending. It’s been already a week that my SIL is the one managing it since I’m busy with my work. Today seems to be another busy day for me.

The other day I was in a hurry to text my SIL about an errand when I saw the NO SIM error on my iPhone. How could that happen? I’m in a hurry and yet I could not text or call perhaps. I tried turning my phone on and off several times but yet it’s still the same.
I also have tried putting my SIM on other phone just to check that my SIM still working. That method didn’t help as well when I tried to put it back on my iPhone.
Here’s what to do correct the NO SIM error on your iPhone.
~Turn the phone off.
~Remove the SIM card
~Get an eraser and carefully swipe it on the “gold” part of the SIM. It’s like you are erasing something.
~Put it back on your phone and turn it on.
Voila, after doing so. My phone is back to normal. It seems that the contacts are already dirty.
Hope this helps.
Sure, we all want to look good and fit that’s why most of us are doing anything just to be healthy, presentable and pleasing. Various fitness gyms, health clubs and restaurants offering healthy foods have emerged through the years because of the increase enthusiasm of people that wanted to get fit and healthy at the same time. Not to mention the various food supplements to aid the body in keeping healthy.
For others who are battling low self-esteem and probably depression because of their physical flaw see that cosmetic surgery could help them gain back their self-trust and respect. For me, there’s nothing wrong undergoing such procedure as long as you have self-limitation.
It’s been how many years that many have patronized this procedure not only ordinary people but obviously it include the rich and famous and almost all celebrities. Celebrities always wanted to look good not just for themselves but also for their fans that’s why it’s no wonder that they wanted this procedure. These days, there are heaps of cosmetic facilities that are offering various cosmetic procedures and one of them is the “The Victorian Cosmetic Institute”. With a team of certified and specialized cosmetic doctors, cosmetic and plastic surgeons, nurses and beauty therapists their aim at the institute is to be able provide quality cosmetic services to all their clients. Aside from their desire to fit every procedure to their patients, they also want those that experience their service feel beautiful in every aspect of their lives after the procedure.
While browsing their website, I learned about the various procedures that they are offering: from simple acne treatment, laser hair removal to surgical procedures such as breast augmentation, eyelid surgery and more. Videos demonstrating the use of dermal fillers in facial rejuvenation, laser removal, chemical peel and other procedures can also help patients on what to expect on the treatments that they want to undergo. Overall, the website is very informative as you can also find Q&A, patient forms, prices, feedbacks and more that any patient wants to read and peruse.
I suggest that before undergoing any cosmetic procedures, always research about it, know the reputation of the clinic and the doctors that will treat you. Of course, just like any other procedures there is always a risk so better understanding and careful research of the procedure is necessary. These days, not only women are undergoing various cosmetic treatments but also men. It only shows that all genders are in pursuit of being youthful and beautiful.

I have many dreams which I want to make come true in my life. But of course, this is not always easy for me. I have limited time, limited money, and limited physical capacities. For example, I admire birds as they can fly. They can see everything from a different perspective. They do not have to be afraid of crashing down and they do not depend on any means of transport. They can breathe the fresh air above our smog air. They can travel far away…
Okay, enough of birds, let’s talk about something more palpable. Because it makes no sense talking about capacities which are not mean to be human. What is human, however, is a need for things. Everybody owns things. As a child, I had my favorite pet (I still have it, I have to admit and I love it), but as I grew up, I developed desires for other things too; fashion, of course, shiny things, colorful things, beautiful things. I have found it especially interesting to dress up with stylish Patek Philippe timepieces – now you might think this is posh, no it is not, because I do not actually dress up with these watches. It is just a dream. I do dream I buy them, and then enjoy them. Simply. I think the reason for me dreaming stuff like this up is that a good friend once made a good deal on expensive Omega watches and that she has been collecting them ever since. They do indeed look nice. And that’s reality. But before I will buy one of my favorite timepieces, I will get a sofa. That’s reality, too. Well, there are many projects on my to-do-list. And once my dreams have come true, I will create new ones and let you know.

It’s been how many days now that our Internet connection was on and off and it’s making me annoyed already. I could not surf the net and do my online work. I’m also puzzled every time it rains, the net will be off in no time.
With all the hassles that I’ve been getting, I already called SMART BRO technical support at 672 – 7277 to air my problem. The call center agent was kind enough to accommodate my problem and in no time the net was back.
The next day same thing happened (no connection) so I called once again and it appears that my antenna can’t get signal anymore. Yay. Fortunately, they were able to send a technician the next day to come and see my connection and the antenna. Sad to say that the antenna has been blocked by a big tree that has grown in our neighbor’s backyard. They looked for another possible location but it can’t get any signal.
The only resort that I can do is ask my neighbor to trim the branches of the tree so I can get signal properly at the tower. Doing so will solve the problem. Yay!
