Goodbye Unwanted Hairs!

Are you the type of person who always complains about excessive hair, I mean unwanted hair in different skin types? Well good me for me because I didn’t encounter such problems. I know some of my friends really find time just to remove all those unwanted hairs in their legs and arms by going to their nearest dermatology clinic. I remember my friend that she told me that she really went to have laser hair removal in chicago and guess what? She also had her cellulite reduction with Thermage just to be prepared for their 2nd honeymoon in Florida. Sounds funny but it was really true!

For Your Info!

I received an email coming from a friend informing me about a certain brand of canned sardines and corn beef. For confidentiality’s sake it would be better if I will not tell the “famous” brand. So here it is:

Hey guys, if you lik
e to eat canned sardines and corn beef, better think twice or better yet cook them real good before you eat them. Why? I have been to these plants just this morning to inspect and design a new mechanic safety "gadget" for the workers to use. I just found out that these goods (especially the corned beef) are re-mixed manually by a worker before mechanically placing them inside the cans. The worker wears this boots before dunking himself inside the tank full of corned beef (as in tons and tons), using an ordinary shovel to manually mix them. Since the product is already cooked, it is so hot while mixing them with the shovel. I know that these products have to be salty but I didn’t expect that a guy’s dripping sweat would be an important ingredient. Eww! I mean the sweat that really drips from chin down to the corned beef/sardines itself. I don’t know if I will be going to laugh or be mad at them! The worst thing about this was, when the worker wants to take a break like going to the CR to take a pee, he just goes there inside the CR without taking their boots off (that supposedly to be used only inside the food tank) and back. Then I decided to take a pee also, after a few minutes. It is so yucky to find out that it is super dirty, I mean, no decent running water and other remnants surrounding the toilets. Just imagine that you have stepped on it and then goes back to the food tank to do their work.

Whether this is true or not, am just sharing it all to you! hahhahaha

Looking for the Right Dress!

We are all so excited for our friend’s wedding next week and guess what? All of my office mates are really preparing for the said memorable event for our office mate as to looking for the right dress to wear and the best gift to buy. Actually just this 5pm, some of them went to the mall just to look for modest clothing for women suited for the said event and I am hoping they have already found their fit as of the moment. Well, for me I’ll just borrow from my cousin’s wardrobe in order for me to save money. Anyway, I don’t have a major part of the wedding unlike some of them. lolz!

The Importance of Google and Blog Advertising

I remember about a year ago, I heard from a friend of mine the term “blogging”. At first it was just a passing conversation about the blogging thing, but time went by I was so motivated to know more about her new found hobby besides the fact that she’s earning fatty dollars out from it. To be honest, I have been into this blogging world for about a year and four months already and sad to say that I was not able to really see the importance of Google and the blog advertising.

I was so happy to read about the article just this evening about Google and blog advertising.It was indeed a very informative article to read since I have learned so much, as in so much out from it. Before I used to think that blogging is just an outlet for expression and communication by just considering only a certain topic and event. From that narrow point of view, my learning’s got widened as I learned that out from that “hobby thing “ , transition may takes place from personal to economic issues, such as product reviews and suggestions as long as you have gained the trust from the people whom you have developed relationships with.

To sum it up, as a blogger, we must continue to write relevant content while engaging in Google and blog advertising.

Humility is a Virtue!

I was rebuked by my hubby as I told him about what happened just this morning in the office. I was thinking of having a revenge, I dunno I felt like I am really mad at her. Well, what I really need this time is HUMILITY! Lord, please help me!

Knowing more on Web Directories

I am so excited for this coming July 17, 2009 for I will be joining our 2nd workshop for CDO bloggers. I have heard from a friend who had attended the 1st workshop that she really learned a lot out from it. As a neophyte blogger I was so motivated to join such since there are still new terms or shall I say unknown words that I really have to know more about. So I guess I really have to devote my time in doing some research just for me to be familiarized and have a little bit background of it.

At first I didn’t know what web directory is all about I mean the purpose of doing it and all. Even though I have already submitted one in the Yahoo directory years ago and maybe to some of you in business.com but still I did it without even knowing it. Lol! That was the time that I had to search about the term and just found that it is also known as the link directory. This is the directory on the World Wide Web that specializes in linking to other web sites and categorizing those links. Before I used to think that it is a search engine, I just recently knew that I was wrong. It does not display lists of web pages based on keywords but instead, it lists web sites by category and subcategory. When one has categorized it is usually based on the whole web site rather than one page or a set of keywords and sometimes sites are often limited to inclusion in only few categories.

Now I know that web directories often allow site owners like me to directly submit their site for inclusion, and have editors review submission for fitness. That was the time that I understand why my cousin sent me an invitation to submit my site in her SEO friendly web directory- a human edited web directory. Only to find out that by doing such it will really help my site to gain higher search engine results and provides a permanent regular and featured links.

Got my Hair Done!

I have mentioned in my previous post that I am planning for a hair make-over this weekend. Whew! I am so happy because it did came to realize...Yesterday was a very great day for me? Why? Because I spent half of the day in my fave salon. I went there from 1 pm to 7 pm just to have my hair done. Actually I have been planning this for almost a year and voila I made it already!

@ Iya's Haven (thanks to Angel C.)

the result!

my new rebonded hair!

Thanks God for such blessings that I was able to have it!
It's really worth the price! :)

Looking for Pro Painters!

I haven’t mentioned yet that we have just moved to our new church building last Sunday. Thanks God that we can be able to celebrate and give praise to our God in a place where we can call it our own. Although it’s not yet finish but it is already usable, the only thing that is lacking is the painting of the whole building. The church is still on the process of raising pledges and asking for God’s provision for the paints needed as well as the air conditioners.

God-willing, I know that if this time would come surely the church would hire some painters to do it. If so, it would be so nice if we could find some like of the Salem Painter here in our place. I guess finding a professional painter to handle the job would be a better option and really a safer one since they will be dealing with ladders and high places. Besides, painters like them can be certain that they have all the proper equipment to complete the job quickly and safely.

Truly, anyone can claim to be a painter, but painting takes a certain amount of detailed skill so when you decide to hire someone for the job you need to become an informed consumer. No matter the size of the job, you need to feel assured that you’re hiring the best painter for your specific job.

Sad News Received!

Few minutes ago as I was writing my assignments, suddenly a YM message box poped-up. It was my first degree cousin from Australia telling me that the husband of my other cousin from Canada just died hours from now. Oh my! The saddest thing is that, my mom and my "Kuya" just talked over the phone last night asking her if the the therapist could visit him this morning to have his first session of theraphy since he suffered from mild stroke. I couldn't believe at his young age he would die so soon and besides we just talked with his wife over YM yesterday morning and in the evening I have talked with my other cousin informing her about "Kuya's" health condition.

Well, life is really so short and we have to be always ready to face these all these things. We really have to live for God! And to you my dearest "kuya", may you rest in peace and we love and we will surely miss you!

We will just hold on with this verse:
"For me, to live is Christ and to die is gain."
Phil. 1:21

One Alert Received!

I can’t imagine how technologies have influenced our lives this much. Internets help our way of getting closer to the world and cell phones as our way of having an easier communication and a lot more.Just imagine that we can even get the latest news just through our cell phones. Good news to those who loves to bet on lottery because their lotto winning numbers can now be known in seconds after the daily lottery draw by subscribing through the use of their phones. I mean they can get the lotto results delivered directly to their cell phone for as low as $8.99 per month. The charges will appear on their wireless bill, or be deducted from their prepaid balance. Cool huh!

The Stage Mom!

Four months from now, my daughter would be turning three and I am so excited for her. Why? Because I can now send her to her ballet school since they will just allow kids aging from 3 and up. Actually, my little Danielle really loves to dance and I wanted to develop that talent in her. As of this time, I am getting ready the stuffs that she needs for her ballet school. I am starting to browse for a Discount Dancewear online or else I might end up buying the expensive one in the market.

I guess I would be a proud stage mom at that time watching for my toddler’s recital moment with her pretty dress as well as her new pair of dance shoes.

Time to Relax...

Excessive pride in one's appearance or accomplishments is considered as vanity according to Merriam’s Dictionary. But for me, it is just normal for women like us to go and relax for some time in a certain spa’s and salons. Actually, I am really planning to have my hair make over this coming weekend since I need to pamper myself from a very long and tiring work. If I do have that enough money with me then I will opt also to have a whole body massage.Sounds relaxing right?

Speaking of relaxation, there is this new great West Palm Beach Salons which invites members of either sex to come indulge and relax. It is a one-stop-shop for all your beauty needs which also provides a unique experience in beauty by providing their clients with premier services in a professional and indulging setting. Their services provided include: Tanning, Nails, Waxing, Facials, Make-up Applications, Reflexology, & much more. All services provided are performed by experienced licensed professionals with personal attention and care. Their nail boutique is well ventilated and 100% sanitary. Their customers receive complimentary wine, beer, or coffee and a hot towel to add to their comfort. Isn’t it great? How I wish I could spend my whole weekend in a salon like this and be like a queen for just a day!

She's Already a Toddler!

Amazing how TIME flies really so fast! I can't imagine that she's
already a big girl now. Before I used to carry her when she was still a baby..
but now, she had grown that much. Thankful to God for such
precious gift we ever received!

Indeed she is a blessing in the family!

Of Planning to Buy One...

Last night was my cousin’s birthday and we really enjoyed each other’s company as we had our chit-chats while we were having our dinner. I don’t know why we were able to mention my cousin’s boyfriend who was looking to improve the look of his hilux. According to my other cousin, he suggested him to purchase a retractable Truck Tonneau Cover in order to improve the overall look of his vehicle. Well, he really considered buying that one since it will serve also to protect and seal his truck bed and one more thing is that he can store things in the back of his truck safely without having worries that someone can break in and even take them.

WFW: Sowing & Reaping

Happy Word-Filled-Wednesday to all!

Who's the Best WHG?

Just recently, I received messages coming from my cousin about her giveaways to interested mommies in our own online community. As simple as sending her an email that you are of those interested members, and then you are entitled for her free web site hosting. Actually she is also a web hosting geek now.

Me too, I am quite motivated to avail the said offer since I am still using my free web hosting for one year and four months in blogging. Actually I have noticed some of my friend’s site where not functioning that well because of the bandwidth problems that is so limited. Good thing that I have bought my own domain with me but not the web hosting thing. I guess I really have to shift and look for the best web host provider this time. It is much better for me to be prepared than to experience problems in the end and might as well my blogging career be affected.

If you are looking for one, like me, then it is good for us to visit and read the Web Hosting 101. In there you will be able to know more about web site hosting and besides you will be able to know who among the top 10 is the best provider among all the web hosting geeks that exists. So better try them now and find out who's the best for you!

Intermission: True Beauty!

with my 'lil Danielle

As they say, that true beauty really comes in the morning...
The moment you wake up, without washing your face nor combing your hair
first is the best beauty that you can show to someone!

Hahahhaha...As if, I possessed the real beauty! lolz!

Great Super Sales!

This is it! As I have mentioned in my post below we were really planning to have a sort of a dream vacation as a family. God-willing, if given a chance then why not go for an Asia Pacific tour right? Well, if I have to choose then it will be Hong Kong Disneyland since I have a two year old daughter who really loves to watch Disney Princesses. Oh I forgot, me too love Disney so much. Lolz! Well, then after that we can go for shopping at Singapore and Bangkok as well. This is some kinda’ day dreaming, well anyway it is for free!

But this time, you can fulfill one of your many dreams in life but not for free but through “Super Sales”. Yes indeed it is true and one of this is Accor Hotels City Super Sale and besides they also have their low air fares across the Asia Pacific region, allowing travelers to enjoy some of the world's most exciting cities at bargain rates.

But in my case since I am a blogger, then I would be so lucky if I will be able to win a voucher for a free 3 night stay at an Accor Hotel in Asia Pacific!! But how? Well as simple as garnering the highest Click Through Rate (as of June 28th, 2009), then you will win!


Updates on our InfRES Activity...

Last June 17-19, 2009 I was out for a 3-day national meeting with the Infrastructure for Productivity Rural Enhancement Sector (InfRES) team. Actually I was kinda' released from stress after weeks of preparation for the said event. Thank God it turned out to be a successful one even though our Secretariat head was not there with us.

A Great Budget Hotel in MC!

My hubby and I were planning to have our second honeymoon this coming October in which we will be celebrating our 4th year anniversary and at the same time my daughter’s 3rd birthday. As early as now, we are considering visiting the island of Boracay and then having a side trip at Manila’s Ocean Park. But still, we were not able to look for an affordable hotel.

Guess what, as I was searching the net this afternoon I happened to hop in this site where one can avail of high-quality, on-budget, affordable, and value accommodation. Great I found this Jupiter Suites, a budget hotel in Makati City that has free Internet access in the rooms as part of the standard service. Another cool thing from them is if you happen to have a facebook account and Be a Facebook fan of Jupiter Suites then you can participate in their promotions that will be done the soonest. Good for me that I have an account. Who knows I might be able to get a lower rates of the hotel room during that time. Right?

Jupiter Suites - a budget hotel in Makati City

Oops! This is too much already, we need to pray for more blessings to come for us to be able to push through all these plans. lolz! To know more information about this site, feel free to visit Jupiter Suites - a budget hotel in Makati City.

My Daughter's First Artwork

Would you believe that this is the work of my two years and eight months old daughter? Me too, I couldn't believed when she called me and let me see her artwork. Amazing right? I did ask her what did she draw and she replied "impee" (meaning slipper). lolz! I guess she was able to get her skills in sketching/drawing from her dad (as well as her dad's brothers). She really loves to draw this time that it made me realize that I need to develop and enhance this kind of talent that she possessed.

Thanks be to God for such wonderful blessings!
