Sea Salt Benefits

Salt is not only essential to life but it is necessary for good health. Human blood contains 0.9% salt-sodium chloride, the same saline solution used medically to cleanse wounds. Salt maintains the electrolyte balance inside and outside the cells. Therapeutic benefits of bathing in salts have been known for centuries. Sea salt is beneficial to the skin. Skin absorbs sea salts, vitamins and any other substances it comes into contact with. It is universally accepted that sea salts can have a wonderful effect on circulation and metabolism.

Sea salts contain many minerals beneficial to the body:

  • Magnesium - is important for both combating stress and fluid retention, slowing skin aging and calming the nervous system.
  • Calcium - is effective at preventing water retention, increasing circulation and strengthening bones and nails.
  • Potassium - energizes the body, helps to balance skin moisture and is a crucial mineral to replenish after intense exercise.
  • Bromides - act to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles.
  • Sodium - is important for lymphatic fluid balance (this is important for the immune system).

Salt is a remedy for many ailments, but not in the form in which it is usually ingested. Bathing in sea water is recommended that is why I am very excited for tomorrow’s activity- going to the beach at early dawn. I believe this would be a great help for my fast recovery of my cough and colds.

Why do People Get Tattoos?

Every time I see people wearing tattoos. I can’t help but ask “Why do people get tattoos?”. For sure the reasons are as varied as there are individuals. Whether you yourself have a tattoo or not, if you know someone who does, it is important to realize that you do not know what that person's reasons are, unless he or she decides to tell you.

A lot of reasons would arise: maybe they use tattoos as memorials. Tattoos can be designed for remembrance of a deceased loved one, of course, but they can also be designed for the purpose of keeping in mind other places or situations which a person does not wish to forget. To some they use this form of self-expression in a manner similar to what generations past used to do with t-shirts: to show the world what they wish to say. But most of them they get a tattoo simply because they want to have one. For many, simply liking artwork on one's skin is reason enough to visit a local tattoo studio, hand over a relatively-large sum of money, and have something etched into one's skin that is intended to remain there for the rest of one's life.

Speaking of tattoos, there is this chat room wherein tons of people from different places join the Tattoo Chat City and really enjoy themselves since it is absolutely for FREE.

Courageous Award!

Mom Gen of Wonderful Things In Life gave this courageous award for me and that she considered me as one :). Indeed I am really one!

Queen Marie Antoinette was born on November 2, 1755 in Vienna, Austria. She was the youngest and most beautiful daughter of Francis Stephen I and Maria Theresa, Emperor and Empress of the Holy Roman Empire. Marie Antoinette was brought up believing her destiny was to become queen of France. She married the crown prince of France in 1770. Four years later she became queen when her husband was crowned King Louis XVI (House of Bourbon).
Here is the award...Now I want to pass this courageous award to this two people whom I know how courageous they are in life: Elaine and Shelo.

My Pregnancy Experience

Three months after getting married, God gave us such blessing named Danielle who happened to be delivered during our first year wedding anniversary. The moment I noticed that I was already lapse for two weeks, I was so excited to buy a pregnancy test kit to confirm if it was positive. Indeed it was and we were very thankful to God for such wonderful gift. I never had worries on how I will look during my pregnancy days. I was so blessed that neither of the morning sickness did I experience aside from vomiting due to over eating of fruits early in the morning. What made me sick was drinking a glass of milk every morning and evening, oh gosh I hate it! Well, I have no choice but to drink it for my baby’s sake.

My friends and office mates did notice on the way I look, they keep on telling me that it was a girl since I am more feminine than the usual me. I still remember the time that I did not go to office without wearing my make-ups plus the sexy thing mini-maternity dress. The good thing was my physical looks did not change, I mean the big nose and all dark spot stuffs. (LOLz)

Now that we are planning to have our second baby next year, it would be great to try this beauty product named Beaute de Maman that is safe for me and for my baby. But to those friends of mine who are pregnant, you can order now and be more beautiful!


Off from work

I am off from work today because I have a slight fever last night due to my colds. I've got body pains that I need to have a body massage but unfortunately I can't because of my period. I have sore throats that made me drink much glasses of water for fast recovery. I didn't drink any medicines just a plain water therapy. Praying to God that I will be well so soon.

House of our Own

Just recently I and my hubby had a talked regarding purchasing a house and lot of our own. We just come realized how we wasted our monthly rental for the house that is not ours for four years. I guess now it’s time for us to look for the right place at the right price too. Correction please we will not purchase it by cash but instead we had to go through a housing loan at Pag-IBIG Fund. We had agreed with my hubby to pray for it that we can acquire such the soonest.

I am really looking forward to move in our new prospect house since I can now start to purchase the things I want to have from little to big things. I guess I will not let my daughter stay with us in our room that’s why I am planning to have a room for her and look for Furniture For Kids of her favorite (see image on the right). Of course it would not be complete if I will not buy Contemporary Bedroom Furniture for the master’s bedroom. Maybe I would opt to buy Metal Beds that is so elegant and of course an affordable one. Good thing that there is this site that offers a winter sale from 45-75% off.

Super Excited!

I am really counting the days for my new baby 'este' blessing to come. I have a friend who lives in U.S who offered to buy a new netbook for me. She purchased it from best buy store and sent it via Johny Air last Saturday. Thanks so much Debs...Whew!!I can't wait for the day to arrive since my blogging career at night will be made possible and there's no reason for me to miss such opportunities when I will be out of town. Thanks God for such blessings!!!

Software as a Service

I remember the time during our feasibility studies days way back college years was so tiring since we have to do such surveys with different people after they had tasted our “free taste” proposed product. But now thanks to the new software that helps to save one’s time and even papers upon taking the Employee Satisfaction Survey so easy and accurately.

Not a Baby!

She's not a baby anymore! She acts like a mature kid already at the age of two. She even wants to go to school and really loves to sing and dance. I thank the Lord for such blessings!

There is LOVE!

I remember of a story about a girl some time ago who traded an email with a friend who was approaching 30 and had no serious love relationship in sight. The guy was so talented, fun, handsome and a committed Christian. But so far, everything on his romantic horizon has turned out to be a mirage. Several months after of communicating, the guy had been very enthusiastic about the young girl with whom he was corresponding. Two weeks before they were to meet for the first time, she was killed by a drunk driver. A friend of the guy made the trip just to meet the girl’s family, experience their pain and even deal with his own sense of loss. Today, many people will feel the absence of love as keenly as others celebrate its presence.

Speaking of love, if you want to find your one true love, you are free to register in the passion search wherein you can meet a lot of people online for free. This is the newest dating site online! So ladies and gentlemen out there, who are in need of a significant romantic others, why not you try to participate in here and have the fun? Who knows you might find the one that you are longing for. But be sure to ask for God’s guidance in choosing your partners in life.


I am not feeling well...

I hate this running nose of mine...Oh gosh, my colds keep running in and out and I've got a teary eyes....Ewww...It seems that somebody hurts me.LOL! My resistance nowadays is so weak that I need to drink more vitamins and medications for a fast recovery..

Appropriate Gear

A month ago, my hubby kept on asking me where did I put our kitchen knife. I told him that I haven’t seen it for quite some time. I asked my mom about it and she said she got it and placed it inside the car. I was surprised why that kind of knife she used, maybe she can opt for an appropriate outdoor gears like kabar knives or even buck knives.

Anime Lovers

Every one of us has its own hobbies in life- some likes to collect stamps, others coins, shirts,souvenir items and to some loves to have anime stuffs like cards and etc. Every time I hear the word anime, a friend of mine always comes to mind since he is into anime cards, movie, stuffs and all. He loves to collect items and never failed to watch a single movie on which he really loved to. Anime styles is of today's fad to the young and even the old ones. The looks, the hair, the fashion dress are super into that made them imitate their anime idol.

I thought that it would just end up there, I have recently found out that there is a site suited for them who loves meet and chat different people around the globe. For sure they will be happy to share their common interest in their new Anime Chat room. In there they can truly express what they want to share to their new friends of the same interest. Who knows they might find there love interest as well since they can chat and can grab their cam with them and talk until they wish to. This is really awesome since membership registration is totally FREE.

Sleepy Meh!

I am so sleepy here at the office because I don't have much work to do...I want to go home and curl up in my bed since I also have my dysmenorrhea now. Too bad...tsk...tsk.. We still have to attend my grandfather's 80th birthday celebration tonight.

Not A Newbie Anymore

I became a blogger a year ago particularly the 28th of February. Days from now I will be celebrating my first year in the blogosphere. At first, I’ll just write a post if I want to for more than half a year. To my surprise when my church mates told me that I can monetize my own blog, I did not hesitate to do so. I signed up for social net workings, blog advertising and so on and so forth. But prior to that, as a newbie I have no choice left but to ask some questions to my mentor about on what and how to do with it. Sometimes I can say to myself that I should better explore it by myself than disturbing my church mate blogger but still I am not yet familiar with the words that they are talking. Indeed I made it all because of their help and I thank them for that!


Since I will be turning 1 few days from now, I consider myself not a newbie anymore. In fact I have urged my other friends to do blogging since I have seen the fruits of labor on it. Of course I can help them in a way but I guess it would be much helpful if they can visit the web design for idiots main page website tutorials that made them fully understand the world of web design so easily. I guess this would be the right place to teach yourself oscommerce for newbies oscommerce file structure and if you have to know more information’s about the author just visit the About Web Design for Idiots . For sure you can get your web design questions answered by web design for idiots.

At last i made it!

For two weeks of having a problem with my site, at last it was resolved just this afternoon. I was really having a hard time on what to do with my problem- I was so shocked when some of my co-bloggers asked me if I didn't have any updates on my site because of the icon posted on my links was still the same from my previous post two weeks ago. Oh really? I told them that everyday I have at least one post written. That's why I have observed why I only received few comments from them and even noticed that I a few visitors in my site that made me a bit worried for my PR to get back to zero. God forbids! Thanks God for His wisdom, I made some research and tadan....I made it by myself.

Forever Romantic!

I forgot to tell you about what happened to me last Saturday (Valentine’s Day). I woke up at around 6am to check if I do have some opportunities to take and assignments to accomplish. But before going out of bed, I asked the Lord to bless me for the whole day and that I will be able to grab some opps. Indeed it was an answered prayer! Of course I greeted my honey while he was still asleep and whispered him “Happy Valentine Honey… I love you”. He did response and gave me a tight hug and a kiss. So sweet!

I never expected that I will receive something from him since he already gave me a bunch of flowers during my birthday last week. I know that it will be so impractical to buy one at a very high cost; instead he can use it for our family dinner for that special day. Around noon time I took my bath since we have to attend a gift-giving church activity called “Samaritan’s Purse” in Balulang at 1pm. As I finished my bath, what I saw at my doorstep from the bathroom is the vase of Balloons standing with the message “I LOVE YOU”. Waa…I was really surprised coz I did not even noticed that he already arrived from work. I immediately ran after him and gave him a hug and kiss. I keep on saying “thank you hon”. Although his presents is not that expensive but still I highly appreciated him for his thoughtfulness.

Wheew! I am so blessed to have a husband like him who never gets tired of giving surprises for a wife like me.

My College Days

I can clearly remember the time that we had our Feasibility Studies back then when I was still in college was really a stressful one. We usually had our overnight brain storming, do some revisions, and even had sleepless nights every time we had to pass our FS papers. To make us more confident we had our mock defense first prior to the final one. Though it’s just a non formal one but still it’s a nerve wrecking defense for us because we were not that really sure that our paper goes well according to our panelists standards. We have to come up with the best custom writing service as much as possible. Thanks God that we passed!

Since I only have a seminar paper (non-thesis) for my graduate studies I am planning to have a thesis of my own so that I can proceed to my doctorate’s degree. I guess I can’t do it right away since I’m still working and at the same time a mom to my two year old daughter. If ever I will push through with my studies I guess I need somebody to help me in doing my research to avoid frustrations and worries. Good thing that this time we can now Buy a research paper mla format to make ones work much easier and guaranteed to have a 100% plagiarism FREE paper at a reasonable price.

So Excited!

Just this lunch break, we have agreed with my bosses and office mates that we will have to devote at least 3 hours in a week just to let our sweats out. We planned to have a “hataw” (fitness dance) every MWF for at least an hour will do. All of us here in the office get so excited for tomorrow’s activity after office hours. I really miss this kind of activity since I seldom do such because of my stressful hectic schedule, from work to home-plus my blogging career at night.LOL! Good thing that we will start right away just to unload our stress through dancing which is my forte. Let's sweat it all out....Yahoooo!…

Planning to have...

I have been married for almost 4 years and yet we don’t have a home that we call it our own. After our wedding we immediately moved out from our parent’s house and lived together as a couple in a separate house that we rented. Time flies that we just realized how we wasted our money for the said house rental. If we just immediately look for a house and lot before and applied for mortgage, guaranteed enough that our monthly installment will not be wasted. How I wish we could have a lot of choices here in the Philippines like the Wilmington, NC Luxury Real Estate that is affordable in a way!

Of Haunting Molly Movie

Last night we watched a suspense movie together with my hubby. It was a bit scary since the girl has a mental disorder according to some because she always imagines that her mom is haunting and trying to kill her. Her mom was put to jail for the reason that she really attempted to kill her daughter. She doesn’t know what the story behind her mom is really. To have a fresh start, they move to a new place thinking that they will really leave those past behind. Unfortunately it was not! I guess that girl really needs a holistic healing psychiatrist and even needs to Buy Emotional Freedom book to help her make a better person as a whole and attain the so called emotional freedom.
