Sweep here, wipe there

It's time for general cleaning!

When there's no job opportunity, cleaning the house is the next priority. Today, I make it a point to take care of our lil house. I do clean it during weekdays but when we talk of how thorough...my ears are closed (lol). Weekends really give me more time.

Our nest ain't really that dusty and messy or anything but it needs a human touch once in a while. I just have to sweep and mop the floor, vacuum the carpet, dust furnitures and appliances, get rid or throw trash and wash our clothes. I am done with the bathrooms the other day though I still have to give a lil time to the toilets ( you know...).

Easy job, eh?

Sex and the city

Actually, I am not a fan nor I'm not watching the tv series " sex and the city". I just don't find it amusing. In anyway, I heard that this show is really rating high. Meaning, it's one of the well-loved series on the television.

Sex and the city is now shown on theaters. They made a movie in a latter sense. I am thinking how viewers would react or appreciate the film. Would it be more satisfying than the series or the tv series is much more better than the movie? Hmnn...what do you think?

I can't tell and will never will as I am not watching this movie. Just not a fan...sorry.

Events in Houston

Watching rodeo is one of my favorite past time on television. I haven't seen a real one yet. Though I am very positive of the fact that one day I will be one of the audience in the arena. I want to feel the emotions that everybody has while watching such event. I want to see and join the crowd as they shout for joy.

Good thing that I live nearby Texas where rodeo events happen particularly in Houston. It will just be hours of drive from Louisiana going there. I can't wait to be part of this event. I used to bragged by husband about this that he would be fascinated as well and will bring me to Houston. I didn't waste my time doing it as he's a fanatic as well now. One day, we'll see ourselves watching the event.

One more thing is that I already found a website where I can purchase our Houston Rodeo tickets. The price is very reasonable enough for us to enjoy and be thankful. I am getting more and more excited everytime I browse this website and check for tickets. Hmmnn..who would like to join us?

This is also a good news for you whose reading this. If you are looking for event tickets in Houston, you can click the highlighted word above to get a great price or deal just like us.

How much is that ring, Scarlet?

Yep, yep, yep...Gossips have been flocking around about the value of Scarlet's engagement ring given by fiance, Ryan Reynolds. Some says that the sparkling solitaire is worth $30,000 but actually it's a more than 4 carat ring with a dazzling tag of $120,000. Shock? Yah, it's that huge! I'm sure everybody is asking when is the big day. For sure, these couple, just like other celebrities who were so quiet when wedding date is the matter would do the same. Followers would just read and hear that it happened already.

McDonalds is now using trans-fat free oil for fries

I like McDonald's french fries despite of the fact that it's ain't healthy. That is why I refrain myself from eating it sometimes especially when I got pregnant.

But here's a great news for Mcdo's French fries lovers from the article I just read today.

photo source

An excerpt from the news...

McDonald’s has lagged other restaurant operators in switching over to a zero-trans-fat cooking oil out of worries it would compromise the taste of its trademark fries. It has been under increasing pressure from consumer advocates and some public officials to make the change, but it did so quietly. Read whole article here.

I live in the Southern part of USA and this time of the year is really, really hot. Even if you have your air conditioner on, still I feel the hotness brought by high humidity.

My lucky charm is working again (lol)

For like over a week, opportunities were like water that I can't keep in my hands. It was so annoying coz everytime I reserved opps, it turned out to be gray or if I reserved some, I'd get the note that I haven't reserved such. Well, as I've said, everyday is not a lucky day. But today is my lucky day! (lol) I earned not that much today but it's still worth it to be one of the top earners.

Thanks PPP!

Identity theft lawyers

Having credits have both positive and negative impacts. It's just that some are abusive and gradually you're getting problems with your debts or credit reports. I am not a victim, myself for now and I am glad with it. Though I am positive to the fact that it will eventually happen especially that I always shop online or use my cards for every purchase. As you see, my identity is being revealed. There was a time when I received this e-mail stating that I purchased a camcorder online which I did not of course. It's just to happened that it was a phishing e-mail or I could have freaked out. Just imagine someone accessing your checking account and that certain person already had withdrawn like over $300 from me.

But so to becoming a victim, still there are helpful individuals or agencies to run to. There are lawyers who could help us in getting back what has been stolen from us -- our identity and assets. If you are an identity theft victim, get help from the experts -- the consumer protection lawyers. They are very skilled in this field and a guarantee is given to you to let those thieves pay. You can log on to www.creditreportproblems.com and browse the site for more information on how they can help you.

Memorial Day history

Happy Memorial Day everyone!

We are celebrating this day in honor or remembrance of those who died in our nation's service. Memorial Day is originally called Decoration Day.

There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. There is also evidence that organized women's groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War: a hymn published in 1867, "Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping" by Nella L. Sweet carried the dedication "To The Ladies of the South who are Decorating the Graves of the Confederate Dead" (Source: Duke University's Historic American Sheet Music, 1850-1920). While Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, it's difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day. It is more likely that it had many separate beginnings; each of those towns and every planned or spontaneous gathering of people to honor the war dead in the 1860's tapped into the general human need to honor our dead, each contributed honorably to the growing movement that culminated in Gen Logan giving his official proclamation in 1868. It is not important who was the very first, what is important is that Memorial Day was established. Memorial Day is not about division. It is about reconciliation; it is about coming together to honor those who gave their all.

Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. The first state to officially recognize the holiday was New York in 1873. By 1890 it was recognized by all of the northern states. The South refused to acknowledge the day, honoring their dead on separate days until after World War I (when the holiday changed from honoring just those who died fighting in the Civil War to honoring Americans who died fighting in any war). It is now celebrated in almost every State on the last Monday in May (passed by Congress with the National Holiday Act of 1971 (P.L. 90 - 363) to ensure a three day weekend for Federal holidays), though several southern states have an additional separate day for honoring the Confederate war dead: January 19 in Texas, April 26 in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi; May 10 in South Carolina; and June 3 (Jefferson Davis' birthday) in Louisiana and Tennessee.

Article management system

Having or owning a site is like any living organism with needs. For human, we have our own basic needs and same is true with our websites. I am a website owner, too. Just like any newbie, I am not really that knowledgeable on how to make my website be known or noticed in the internet world. I want to increase it's traffic and of course, to get this what they call PR from google. I am not alone with this dilemma, I have friends who are blog owners as well who also want to get what I want. This is because, it helps us to get higher job offerings. What we need is an article advertisement in order for our websites to get rankings and generate more traffic.

The new Katrina Halili

The Philippines' sexiest, Katrina Halili is taking her new role seriously. Viewers had known her for her villain roles in the past especially in her role in Marimar which she was hated most by Marimar's fans. Now Katrina had switched her path from being a villain to a poor one being stamped over by Iwa Moto on the afternoon soap opera of GMA-7's Magdusa Ka. She is co-starred by Dennis Trillo. Katrina is very effective and does her job well. I like Katrina but I think I love her most for her new role now. She is indeed an actress.

iSold it on ebay

Shopping will always be a part of me. Eversince I got here, online shopping has been a daily routine. I am a constant watcher, bidder and buyer of ebay. Actually, I just got today the sunglasses I bought last Sunday. There is one more coming in the mail. Hopefully I'll receive it this Friday or Saturday. I was just again tempted and failed to fight my weakness...the shoes.

Anyway, I've chosen ebay as there are so many items to choose from with prices cheaper than what I see in the stores.

By the way, a friend of mine just started selling some items on ebay. Since she's still a newbie, I know she has still lots of things to learn. I will be telling her about
iSold It that she can sell her items with no hassles. Selling online with iSold is the easiest way and it will be a great opportunity for her.

Sooner or later, I might be selling some items on ebay as well and I would definitely get connected with iSold it.

Like anyone else, we, too, have debts. I guess a normal way of living. Though, we make sure that we pay our bills on time. Just like when hubby used his credit card to purchase knives to add his collection. Prior of doing so, he already had in mind on how he's gonna pay for it. He is paying it when his stimulus check arrives which he really did.

Sometimes, we can't take care of some things especially in paying our credit card bills. To say so, the budget is not enough for all our expenses. But let's not forget that we are responsible for any single penny we owe. If we can't stop debt now, ask help from aca4help.com. It is there to support us as we go through our lives.

Senator Kennedy diagnosed with brain tumor

I just read the news and was a lil bitty shocked with the Senator's situation. Neither that I know him or related to him but knowing somebody has a cancer makes me kinda shatter.

Anyway, here's an excerpt from the news...

The Massachusetts Democrat has a malignant glioma in the left parietal-lobe, according to doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital, where Kennedy, 76, has been undergoing tests since Saturday after having a seizure at his Cape Cod home.

The usual course of treatment includes combinations of radiation and chemotherapy, but Kennedy's treatment will be decided after more tests. Read full article here.

Tips on what dress to shop for your chest

Here are the tips on choosing the right dress for your chest :

Fuller Chests: Emphasize Shape and Cover Up With Class
If you're blessed with an ample bust, there are a few things you can do to create a more elegant look. The point is not to hide your assets but to complement them with fabrics and cuts that won't compete with your body's natural shape.


Minimize extra large breasts. Solution: V-necks are the most becoming, as they open up your face and neck, pulling attention upward. Choose a fabric that won't cling too tightly to the chest, like cashmere or another soft knit.
Highlight shape. Solution: Wrap cardigans separate the chest instead of smooshing it into an unflattering shape. The lightweight knit of a cashmere sweater doesn't add extra bulk, and belted styles create a flattering cinching of the waist.
Cover up and still look chic. Solution: A blazer will help to camouflage larger chests and add style to any ensemble. Steer clear of double-breasted jackets, and aim for ones that end near the waist.

Bonus Accessory Tip: Large earrings keep the attention on your face instead of on your chest. Try teardrop-shaped chandelier earrings.

Medium Chests: Turn it Up, Turn it Down
Women caught in the middle enjoy the best of both worlds. You can play down your chest when necessary, or show the girls off when the mood strikes.


Emphasize your assets. Solution: Empire seams are flattering, as they draw attention to your chest. An empire waist tank dress is the perfect party dress, combining sophistication with fun.
Downplay your chest without disguising your femininity. Solution: Try a long scoop-neck cardigan, the perfect way to stay casual without covering your curves. Another option is an oxford shirt. This guy-inspired design probably wouldn't flatter other sizes, but for a gal in the medium range, it's a perfect way to cover up and still look like a woman.
Get some support while experimenting with different necklines. Solution: Lucky you—you've got the chest to fill out a dress, but you don't need serious support. Because you have the luxury of wearing so many styles, a convertible bra will be an asset to your wardrobe. Its convertible powers adjust to fit under anything from a strapless gown to a cute halter top.

Bonus Accessory Tip: Any style will work for you, so you can wear beaded necklaces knotted, layered or long.

Smaller Chests: Optical Enhancement
Just because you don't have double Ds doesn't mean you won't look great in today's fashions. There are plenty of styles you can wear that larger breasted women can't.


Highlight your small frame. Solution: Use a halter top to show off your petite structure. The halter dress is perfect: its cut accentuates the shoulders and back, but won't be too revealing.
Create a bustline where there is none. Solution: Seek out pieces with fabric gathering near the chest area, as this adds dimension. Ruffles strategically placed pump up the volume where you need it.
Stay cozy but don't flatten your form. Solution: Opt for chunkier cardigans that will add texture to your outfit better than thinner fabrics.

Bonus Accessory Tip: Long pendant necklaces are perfect for smaller chests, as they will lie flat against your torso. Pendants might get lost on bustier women, but for you they will be perfectly chic.

Wardrobe Malfunctions: Fix 'Em Fast!
We all know even the most flattering pieces don't always behave. In order to prevent potential chest disasters, here are some tricks of the trade that will ensure great coverage and eternal peace of mind.

Problem: Button Gap

Try tape strips to keep your shirts and tops in place. This is an adhesive that comes in various shapes and sizes, so you can put them just about anywhere they're needed. These little guys are also lifesavers for strapless dresses and plunging necklines.

Affordable and fine quality laptops

Everytime we go visit the office supplies and electronics stores here to purchase some items, I always see to it that I pass by their computer area to look at their laptops. It's not just simply staring at laptops, my bare hands are like magnets that stick on the displays and start manipulating it.

As much as I want to own a laptop, I just think of this common phrase which says "for your eyes only" and that's the only thing I do. Laptops sold in electronics or office supplies stores are pretty expensive. My budget can't go over the price. I want a cheaper one but of high quality laptop of my own.
Going over the internet, I found an e-store which sells cheap laptops and accessories in a very affordable price. I can't even believe on what I've seen. Even the top brands such as apple, compaq, IBM and dell are really cheap compared to other e-stores. There's no way you can find these prices anywhere. Laptop Broker leads the way. Aside from laptops, there are more products to purchase from the website. Amongst are the following :
  • iPods
  • HDTVs & LCDs
  • Batteries
  • Docking Stations
  • Hard Drives
  • Memory (RAM)
  • Power Adapters
  • Desktops
  • Laptop Bags
Moreover, their products are categorized by brands so shopping has made easy for us. A flat rate shipping is offered as well. So no matter how heavy your purchase is, you are still to pay $9.95 for shipping and handling.

So if you are planning of purchasing laptops, I am recommending Laptop Broker for a great deal.

My thanks

For the past 3 weeks, I didn't get any job opportunity from Payu2. If I may guess it right, it had something to do with the opportunities I accepted from SS. That really bothered me a lot and made me to a decision of letting go of those opps for now. I really value Payu2 a lot. I like their system.

Thanks for giving me those jobs.

A wild, wild vacation

Actually, I am kinda laughing here. Sounds crazy, eh? Not if you'll learn why. Tell you something, I am thinking about a vacation I had with my hubby in Orlando. I don't want to go over details about what really happened but one thing for sure, it was such a crazy and a funny one. That vacation won't be a memorable one without our list of things to do in Orlando.

There are so many cities or places to be visited here in America like Atlanta. I have a couple of friends who live in there and I really would want to see them in case we plan on having a vacation again. I will include it in my list of Things to do in Atlanta aside from seeing Atlanta's pride..the tourist spots.

Part of our vacation is to plan ahead and part of that is making transactions with Trusted and Tours for our tour package which includes our plane tickets and a hotel to stay in. As much as possible, we want to enjoy our sightseeing tours starting from the affordable prices offered by Trusted and Tours.

Before I may forget, I am encouraging everyone to sign-up Trusted Travels eNewsletter for a chance of winning a $150 worth of Itunes gift card. Please don't waste no time as this promo ends on May 31st, 2008.

Blood type tag

A tag from Twerlermz. Thanks dear!

According to a Japanese institute that does research on blood types, there are certain that seem to match up with certain blood types.

You want to be a leader, and when you see something you want, you keep striving until you achieve your goal. You are a trend-setter, loyal, passionate, and self-confident. Your weaknesses include vanity and jealously and a tendency to be too competitive.

You like harmony, peace and organization. You work well with others, and are sensitive, patient and affectionate. Among your weaknesses are stubbornness and an inability to relax.

You're a rugged individualist, who's straightforward and likes to do things your own way. Creative and flexible, you adapt easily to any situation. But your insistence on being independent can sometimes go too far and become a weakness.

Cool and controlled, you're generally well liked and always put people at ease. You're a natural entertainer who's tactful and fair. But you're standoffish, blunt, and have difficulty making decisions.

How do you rate?
I'm type A. True to what is written above, I want everything to be organized and at peace. I don't mind doing things with others. In fact I enjoy it. My flaws, I am easily hurt when it comes to some things. My husband said I am really a stubborn creature...hehe.

Now let's keep this tag rolling! I want to know if your blood type really fits your personality.

Specialized construction equipment

We've been away from home for like the whole day today. We went shopping for my husband's tools from the leading stores around the area.

Along the way, there are lots of constructions going on. I've seen huge of machineries in the construction areas such as trucks, tractors and more which I couldn't name for I am not familiar with it. Sign of progress in a short sense. These sort of things woke the sleeping interest in me. Imagine how useful these machineries are to man power.

Talking about construction equipments, I came across this company website named Asher & Sons. Again, I became so interested with their business and what they offer. Being in the business for a decade is more establishing but Asher has been operating for nine decades dealing specialized construction equipments such as truck and equipment rentals, sales, and services.

Stark Museum of Art

Visit the City of Orange, Texas and be amazed with everything it has to offer. The city is gifted with as lot of amusements for tourists and even locals. Museums and gardens are just are just among the most visited places.

Explore Stark Museum of Art which has America's most significant collections of American Western art. The museum is founded by the Starks...H.J. Lutcher Stark and his mother, Miriam Lutcher Stark whose passion into collecting American West art and vision led into creating this superb museum.

The museum holds most of the significant collection of all time. These are :
  • Western Art collection. The finest collections of 19th and 20th century Western American art and artifacts in the country are found at the Stark Museum of Art. This collection focuses on the stunning land, dramatic people, and diverse wildlife of the American West.
  • The Decorative arts of the museum is a collection which is primarily of glasses and porcelain which included numerous items from Steuben Glass, the only complete set of The United States in Crystal, a series of bowls engraved with scenes representing each of the 50 states as well as Puerto Rico and the Union. The Stark Museum of Art collection holds the entire series as well as some duplicates, including unpainted versions.
  • The American Indian collection consists of objects created by members of the tribes of the Great Plains, Southwest, Eastern Woodlands and Northwest Coast. The collection includes excellent examples of Plains clothing, body ornaments, and beadwork, such as elaborately beaded moccasins.
  • The Rare Books and Manuscripts collection includes The Birds of America by naturalist John James Audubon. These five double elephant folios, which depict the birds of North America, belonged to the artist. The groundbreaking publication is widely regarded as one of the finest illustrated books of all time
These collections are really awesome. I am proud of those individuals whom by passion took care of these for years.

Along with the museum, a foundation was also established for charitable and educational purposes. Founded on 1961 by H.J. Lutcher Stark and his wife, Nelda C. Stark. Stark Foundation's mission is to improve the quality of life in Southeast Texas by encouraging, promoting and assisting education, the arts, and health and human services.

Higop-higop sabaw

The other night, I cooked for me and hubby. I had "sinabawang baka" for myself and beef stew for him.

He is so hard to feed... just so picky. He doesn't like onions, garlic, carrots, green vegies, etc. Still, I'm still glad coz he likes potatoes. That's why every time I cook for him, it's always beef stew -- beef, potatoes with soy sauce. And for always, I prepare two dishes -- one for him and another for me. Rice is part of our meals.

It's very unusual, eh?

A unique card for a precious smile

Ive seen lots of photo cards software in the stores just a few weeks ago. Everything are most likely similar. There is such no uniqueness about it. Finally, just now, I happened to browse a website which service is to customize Photo Cards and Custom Photo Greeting Cards. This sounds new to me. You can personalize your cards with any of their pre-printed verses or write your own to convey your own customized greeting. As a customer, you are allowed to to do what you want for your photo cards ; you can change the front cover to feature any greeting verse you wish or, you may choose to leave the verse blank and make photo greeting cards stationery to use whenever you want to drop someone a line.

To my curiosity. I tried it myself. I first selected the the design I want for my photo card. I have chosen the horizontal for it's orientation. I then uploaded my favorite photo and this would appear on the photo card itself. Since I have the option to select the verse I want to appear on my card, I just typed the words on the box provided. Moreover, if I am not satisfied with my own customization, I can still edit it. Personalizing or customizing your own photo cards is so simple, eh? Give it a try as well. Just browse the website to see more and create your own photo cards. Make someone happy!

Statue of San Lorenzo Ruiz stolen in New York

I can't understand these people who stole the statue of San Lorenzo Ruiz, Filipino Saint. As a Catholic, I find it a fowl. How could these burglars take such a sacred thing? If they aren't a Catholic, at least show some respect to one's religion. That statue did nothing to them. It's just so annoying hearing about this news.

Excerpt from the news

Councilman James Gennaro says the statue of San Lorenzo Ruiz de Manila, a Filipino Catholic martyr and saint, was stolen on Tuesday.

He said someone chopped off the statue at the ankles and stole it from the San Lorenzo Ruiz Spiritual Center in Jamaica Hill, Queens.

He said the NYPD Hate Crimes Unit is investigating the incident.

Here's your chance of winning a $150 worth of Itunes

Summer is on it's way. This season means so much to me. So much memorable things had happened. You know why? Firstly, I came here late in May of last year so I was able to experience the whole season, the hot summer in the USA. Apart from that, hubby brought me to different cities around USA. We had a weekend in Las Vegas. A city where most you see are gigantic buildings, beautiful lights at night ; a perfect tourist spot for foreigners and locals alike. There are so many things to do in Las Vegas and the words I mentioned above is not enough to detail how pretty Las Vegas is. It's for you to see.

Next time, if we've gotten a chance again for a vacation, we might spend it in Chicago. I want to see what Chicago has to offer for tourists like us and I am excited with it. Chicago things to do are too many to mention but I am certainly sure it would be a stay or a vacation to be remembered.

Anyway, I was looking for a vacation package online just now and found sightseeing tours offered by Trusted Tours and Attractions. The price is very affordable which is great as our budget ain't sky is the limit. We want a vacation that won't be of so much to spend.

By the way, I am not kidding about the title I have on this entry. It's for real! You have a chance to win a $150 worth of Itunes gift card. Simply sign-up for a Trusted and Tours newsletter and you are in of winning.

Should I swallow this?

Yesterday, I posted about the sentiment I had with PPP. You can read that certain post here.

As I've said, I submitted a ticket and also got a reply from one of their customer service. With that reply, I was hoping to be enlightened but not. It's like everything now is so confusing.

Their answer or maybe excuse was that my rank had changed that's why I wasn't able to complete the opp. For all I know, I checked my rankings on that time and there was no changes made. It was verbatim till I submitted my entry and even after it was denied.

If that is the case, then what's the purpose of that so called 6-hour time to complete the opportunity?

I also read Gladys post today. As expected, PPP has it's reason as well which does not coincide with the response they had to me. PPP's reply to Gladys was that there was no such 113.50 job opp yesterday where there was and I was one of those lucky bloggers who were able to reserved it.

Now, in my ticket I also mentioned the said amount of opp but they didn't give any explanation about it.

There is something wrong! We can't pin point but we are hoping this would be fixed.

Cell phones for oldies

Most of our oldies can not use cell phones of their own. There is a need for them to be taught of the features a cell phone has.

My mother-in-law own one but still prefers to use her landline. I remember the last time I was with her and somebody was calling her cell phone. The phone kept on ringing waiting for her to press the answer button. She had like three or more missed calls. I wondered why she's not doing anything that time. She just let her phone rang. I asked her why and she said she doesn't know what to do or press. So I taught her to press a key and she was able to received the call. It was a lil bit funny but I hid my emotion. I don't want her to get embarrassed.

Now there is a cell phone available for our oldies. The phones' features really suit their needs. Cell phones from Jitterbug are so easy, helpful and very affordable. Features include the following :

  • It has bigger, backlit buttons. Most of our old folks can hardly see and this is best for them.
  • Bright and large text.
  • Powerful speaker sounds loud and clear.

Jitterbug has a live, 24-hour operators that can make calls for our oldies in case of emergencies. Also, provide directory assistance and add names to phone list.

The service is very affordable. With just $10 a month, calls are unlimited with no roaming or long distance fees.

This really makes sense. A cellphone created for our grandparents.

What's your GreenIQ Score?

Have you done green today? How green are you?

Opps...you might be wondering what I am talking about here..about GREEN. Being green is conserving or doing the right thing for the people; for the environment; and for the earth. We have to rebuild the earth not just for the present but for the future as well. Being green is so easy. Take the following as examples :
  • You can start by conserving your water usage at home and or practice it when you are in a different place. Take for example, when you are brushing your teeth. You don't have to let or leave the water flowing from the faucet. You can use a glass and fill it with water.
  • Instead of using artificial plants as a decoration in the house, why not get a real plant. That way, you save from buying air fresheners as plants give you fresh air.
