Domain Registration

Wednesday, January 30, 2008

AS I have blogged about earlier, I am really into deep thoughts about getting my own domain. It may sound weird to really think about it, but you see I am a reflective person. I do think hard and deep and sometimes consume lots of time before I can decide on something.
Are you like that also? Or are you as impulsive and always in the state of excitement like my husband and daughter? Some times I do wish I can decide as impulsively as they do, but I can not. I do not know why… Although I always believe in the saying: slow but sure sometimes it is not applicable in this fast-paced life of ours which considers: time is gold. Wheew!
However, since there are many available choices these days, variety becomes the key! In domain registration there are many choices already. So I may still take my time in deciding about my domain registration. I need to choose wisely!

There are times when my husband will shift to a mode of being an OC (obsessive compulsive) freak! This is specially true when he has a new gadget in his possession (i.e., cellphone, mp3 players, etc). So when I came across this new invisibleSHIELD for iPODs, I am quite sure he and other techno-geeks will get be getting their hands on this.

This invisibleSHIELD is made from a unique material which is originally created for the military to protect the leading edges of helicopter blades. It offers protection that other screen protectors, covers, skins, or cases just can't match. And the main thing is it doesn't add any bulk to your ipod case just like the common silicone or leather case.

Cool isn't it?

Rule #1

Copy all the links below and replace a single link under the appropriate alphabet. If your domain name, or even the title of your blog, starts with an ” A,” you’d replace the link under that alphabet and put the replaced link at the bottom. Also, don’t forget to credit the tagger, or where you got the list from, at the end of the list with a full URL of the post so that a pingback gets generated.

Rule #2
You now have to “tag” at least five people and encourage them to participate so that this thing spreads like a virus. Remember, though, that not everyone’s into these kinds of things, so don’t be upset if they don’t participate. Just simply replace your tag. Remember to tag blogs only and no pornographic ones as we do want to keep the integrity as a blogging community. TIP: Tag your frequent EntreCard droppers via its messaging system.

I am tagging : Arlene , Liza , and Pinay Mommy

Rule #3
Just like any other “meme” out there, ask a question for your taggees to answer along with your own answer to your previous question. This is optional.

  • to cook and eat with my family
  • traveling
  • blogging and earning from what I love to do…writing.
  • hot, steamy and to-die-for coffee in the morning!
  • chatting, laughing, reminiscing good old days with my siblings
  • looking at babies and reflecting what are they thinking

  • "It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not. "~ Andre Gide

I hate

  • sad goodbyes
  • selfish/ self-centered people

And now to tag other people:

Spain...Here I Come!

Tuesday, January 29, 2008

Filipinos have strong affinity with the Spanish people because our country used to be under their colony. In fact, most of our culture is patterned from the Spanish culture. For sure there are many words from our language that are Spanish- based and sounding alike.

Our food is also mostly with Spanish names and spices. The exotic Paella, steamy arroz caldo, delicious arroz valenciana, the sumptous pork or beef lengua are just to name a few Spanish food we inherited from them which are still enjoyed up to these days!

When one visits our country, most old houses and buildings are of Spanish heritage. Our Catholic churches were all built by Spanish friars and priests more than 300 hundred years ago. Even the family names of most of our population are truly of Hispanic heritage.

That is the real reason why I like to travel in Spain. For sure, I will truly enjoy the resorts and hotels there. I heard there good accommodations in Sitges Barcelona Hotels, Benidorm Hotels, Costa Del Sol Marbella Hotels, and Costa Del Sol Torremolinos Hotels. We will see... i am excited to travel there, too.

Available Online

Tuesday, January 29, 2008

Almost all the things that can be one online, I have already tried. Believe it or not even if I am a woman who loves many fancy things for me and my family, I have not tried shopping online. But for sure that would come in handy as soon as I have already saved enough funds from my on line work. It is really writing that I have done most thru my online journal which is this blog.
It refreshes me to be able to narrate my thoughts and problems and joys online. Most of the time it is such a joy to have friends who are really available for me. I have gained a lot of them online. And I love the fact that they are becoming more and more each passing day.
Maybe next time playing online I would do. Yes. Best online casino is for sure available always. Best online casino offers step by step guide to users. That would be easy…

LIFE is all About...

Sunday, January 27, 2008

There is no secret to enjoying life, except keeping relationships...
That i just realized at the age of 34. Now.
You see relationships makes our world go round, whether we admit it or not. Humans are, indeed, social beings who crave for other human beings. We will go berserk if we pursue life alone or in solitude. More than that it will be such a pointless pursuit of life, right? Why will we pursue it in the first place if there's nothing or no one to share it with, right?
The basic question i have for our existence is this: Do we work to live OR do we live to work?
If we choose the former, the next question would be: then what do we live for?

My answer is : for others...Yes, We live for other human beings.

Let me get this straight.

If we put our life on the line earning through our careers, why do we do that? Isn't it because of and for our families? or to be with good companionship/friends? That's for other human beings and the relationships we have with them, right?

If we choose to stay at home and be the most nurturing human being, isn't it also for our espouse or children?

However, if we choose to be the most boring or passive person this world can ever have, isn't it also because we want to disprove or annoy others?

Because life all all about RELATIONSHIPS.

How about you, what do you live for?

Level Up

Sunday, January 27, 2008

I have been blogging for some time now and have been seriously considering on taking my blog to the next level. In addition to that, I was in the process of looking for a decent web hosting firm to set up my new blog.

So I am in a decision point here.

I have came across a site which helped me in deciding on my web hosting choice. It's a very good site for people on the market for web hosting. It even has a "getting started" for those not familiar with the basics of web hosting.I might try a level up!

Business, not just Pleasure

Sunday, January 27, 2008

My husband and I have been into real discussions about our family’s budget and investments. We have been really re-thinking lately of going into small diversified businesses these days. We call it diversified because we do not want to put all our hard-earned money into just one unpredictable source of income. We do not want to practice: putting all our eggs in one basket.
Since we do not have big savings or properties yet, we are really contemplating of putting up three kinds of micro-enterprises for our three growing children. It is not easy just to rely on our salary due to escalating prices of good and commodities. More than the daily needs of the family, we need to think of generating funds for our children’s education.
We know we are still young, but we still need to make sure that our children’s future is secure.
We already have one kind of micro-enterprise in mind. But we still need to secure financing for the said enterprise. It is small but we hope that eventually it turns out big enough to send our kids to college. You see, it won’t be easy to maintain a business while working full-time but with persistence it can be done, right?
For the meantime, a fast payday loan can be secured to start off. Yes, payday loans are easy to get nowadays.

Everything is Fast

Saturday, January 26, 2008

What is injected constantly into the minds of the people today is: everything can be achieved in an instant. Yes, almost everything today is about spontaneity and fast paced. There is no room for waiting for anyone anymore. How? Read on…
Food is mixed and cooked in a minute. The fast food revolution is so on the roll… and such a hit! Drinks are packaged and available in all kinds of flavors and packs, and can gratify anyone in minutes. House works are done with ease because of high technology or devices.
We receive mails in split seconds. Conversation with diverse people from all walks of life in different parts of the world regardless of time can be done in matter of minutes. We can play on-line games and view videos instantly. There are so many opportunities to do over the internet that the concept of waiting and the virtue of patience can be someday extinct in the human race. Do you think so?
Everything is instant! Money is received in minutes through on-line banking or automated teller machines (ATM) for salaries, cash advance loans, on-line payments, etc. Text messages are sent and received by every person…What else in there to wait for?

Character? OR Car-racter?

Friday, January 25, 2008

I feel nostalgic every time I vividly visualize our family’s first car. It was a Toyota. Fiery red was the color and we called her Apples. It was a nice car and did not give us much headache, even up to the time when we had to let go of it. I loved that car. But sudden financial need forced us to sell Apples. Too bad.

After one year, without the red car, I could still feel the longing for a new car. Our kids had to re-adjust: having no private transportation for our family’s days out.

We waited for the chance to have a new one. And that day came! A car came to our lives: FOR FREE! Yes! Imagine how we welcomed the blessing with wide, open arms. And the best news is, it came to us for free! Now we call her: BLESSY. Why? Because the car is definitely a blessing! A kind, most generous soul, who is my sister, gave us a car.

You may be saying it’s just a car, but truly it gave us refining of character. It gave us humility in waiting and being able to re-think how to be good stewards of our resources. Lesson is: if it can be controlled, we will never allow such financial havoc in the future, again. Another lesson learned: blessings come in huge packages!

But these days it’s easy to get car loans, if one might want a car. There are even bad credit car loans. Yes, you read it right, bad credit car loans with easy financing are always available… Check it.

Pamper Yourself...

Wednesday, January 23, 2008

Think of an all-expense paid vacation. Think of places farther than your usual annual trips. Think of something that you really like to do on your vacation: sun bathing perhaps, watching waves along the shores or getting a whole body massage, fresh fruits served at your beck and call, music from a live band at night while dancing under the moonlight… Wow! Isn’t that heavenly?
What else could be more satisfying than playing games which can win you prizes, just like poker!
If you still do not have any idea how to play poker game then you are missing a lot. However, it is not too late to learn about the mechanics of the game. It is easy to play poker. Anytime, anywhere just one click of a mouse, information can be viewed or downloaded! It is indeed, very easy. Everything you want to learn about the game is available online.

Better Safe than Sorry

Tuesday, January 22, 2008

That’s the word to describe today’s businesses and present-day global market. There are so many different kinds of businesses that it is such a stiff world for those who are involved.
Most of my siblings are into businesses. One of them owns different type of vehicles, because that’s her forte: vehicles. In fact, she owns different kinds of vehicles but most of which are vans or Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV). You see she also owns a convenience store. Thus, she needs vans to carry the supplies, more often that once a day.
Being a street smart business owner, she makes sure she has van insurance. You see, in her kind of business there’s so much risks during traveling time. Therefore, she doesn’t gamble the safety of her drivers and vans. She makes sure she gets van insurance, just like the kind of UK van insurance, even if it’s cheap van insurance. It is better and safer to get one than to risk life and limbs online.
The more secure the business, the more efficient the daily management is. Since there will be less risk, thus there will be less worry or stress on my sibling’s part. In fact, her business has been growing because she makes sure everything is secure.

Products and Choices

Monday, January 21, 2008

What do choices offer? Why is it easier to decide when we have choices? Why should we be always given choices? Do you have any idea?
I have some ideas but they are not necessarily the correct ones. It does not follow that I am right. However, I would like to share some of my ideas with you.
In my culture, choices mean progress. Yes, if people are given choices that means we are given freedom to decide. From our decision we choose what the best is.
It means development also. It means development because when choices are presented there is openness to freedom of choice. And when there is freedom, there is progress.
In economics, when there are choices of commodities or services presented, there is no monopoly. When there is absence of monopoly, there is competition for the products or services, product prices or even brands available. It now becomes: the more choices, the merrier to decide!
It goes the same when buying items. If there are more chances for price comparison, the better! Price comparison means better choice. Agree?
Try this site for better price comparison.

Number Games

Sunday, January 20, 2008

When it comes to numbers and figures, I am quite sluggish. Understanding the coded language, that is Math, is never my cup of tea. I just could not force myself to analyze and synthesize figures and symbol the way I do with the written language. When gifts or number skills showered from the heavens, I think I was asleep. Or was I on vacation? Or maybe I just did not receive as much skills as my husband did. (He majored in Applied Physics, after all) Or the last alibi could be: he took my entire quota.

Kidding aside, I may not be that good with numbers but for sure I can understand simple equations.
This struck me as serious: Every 26 seconds, a car is stolen in America. Almost half of cars stolen are never recovered. Isn’t that quite alarming? Even the not so expensive ones are stolen. Isn’t that quite ironic, too? How come even in the most progressive country like the U.S. thefts are still rampant?
Thus, I do not gamble with my property. No matter how dense I am when it comes to number, I know what to do with my car: get my car insurance. Sometimes, our budget is tight but still it is best to get car insurance than to risk losing our car, right?

Awards Galore!!!

Play Online

Friday, January 18, 2008

More than getting in touch with friends and families worldwide, making friends online and being so well informed about the world through online presence, online casinos can truly entertain many people these days. No one has to travel far or be bothered by hassles of packing to visit decent casinos. Online casinos are just one click of the mouse away! Isn’t that the most convenient of all? That is complete hassle-free entertainment! Many of those who logged in can truly attest to the different experience in this kind of amusement games.
These days, reputable online casinos are number one source of amusement because they offer best poker rooms and gaming sites. There are wide ranges of choice offered so that gamers can truly decide which games are for them. Best amusement experience can only be encountered through different choices. With exciting offers and prizes plus complete entertainment packages, costumers will have grand time playing.

BT Broadband

Friday, January 18, 2008

Like what I have already written about earlier, everything seems done online. Aside from cooking and washing clothes, what else is not done online? Tell me.
Internet technology seems to be the highest from of invention mans has ever created out of his intelligence. Why do I say so? Because more than the fact that it transcends time and distance, I do not think all of us can go back to the time when there was no internet.
Since it is one of the most important technologies in our present civilization, I do believe investing on high speed connection is a must. If one has very slow, snail-paced connection, it is futile to compete with the ones with the most reliable high speed connection.
What is your type of connection? Try BT broadband, it is one of the best. Speedtest is always available to assure costumers of really high-speed connection.

I am a wife, for almost eleven years now.
I am a mother for ten years now.
I have been part of the workforce for the last 14 years of my life.
Most of the time, I am at work earning a living or at home serving my family.
Even if i earn for a living in partnership with my husband, I always call myself as a full-time Mom.
I believe, there is no such thing as part-time Mom. But all Moms are all full-time.

Alls moms are on-call; anytime the children need them.

Moms are 24/7 people who will wage their time, effort, heart and soul for their children.

Moms are the most in-demand people on earth from wiping tears to mending wounded hearts to storming heavens for miracles to end sufferings.
Moms are neither too sleepy to mix milk in the middle of the night nor too weak to leap from bus to train just to attend parent-teachers conferences.
Moms seldom say they are tired, even if a whole day of laundry makes their eyelids close out of exhaustion.

You can argue with me, but life is such a dreary place if all Moms call-in half time!!!

Best of the Online Casinos

Thursday, January 17, 2008

There are many things we can do online. Yes. It seems only cooking and laundries are the only work we cannot do online these days. From amusement, fun or entertaining ourselves to serious ways of earning a living, everything can be done online. I bet we cannot survive these days without our online presence or absence of the internet. Come to think of it, can you still imagine life without the World Wide Web? I cannot do so. Not now and not in the coming days. Even my children have been so into this that life will be so boring for them without the internet world.

As I said earlier, amusements are part of our internet life. Best online casinos are very much present these days to get games and bonuses. Interactive, user friendly graphics and customer support with complete reliability come with these best online casinos. Complete entertainment and fun come easy with just one click of your computer mouse.

Dream Boat, Anyone?

Thursday, January 17, 2008

One of my dreams is to own a boat or yacht. Yes, it may sound truly awkward. But I dream of sailing across the waters with my loved ones. I dream of owning a fully furnished, top-of-the-line model of a boat I can just imagine the joy and fulfillment I will feel once I am aboard my own boat! For sure, my children will have a grand time aboard and sailing thru the seas.
Since we live in an archipelago, there is so many ways or places to enjoy our boat. Beaches to dock the boat are available almost in every province, except for those who are land-locked or mountainous.

Boats are good forms of investment too, because more and more people are investing to get a boat. Of course, I will not forget to get boat insurance. I should be very well aware how to protect my boat thru proper boat insurance.

Boats are good investments. Should financial crisis or sudden emergencies come, it is easy to sell the boat.

Best Online Slots

Thursday, January 17, 2008

Online slots are very much available these days. There are many accessible online slots choices but of course those who are really good remain to be the top of the choices. In fact, Sloterix is one the pioneers, if not oldest slots site in the internet world. Being a lead in the business, costumers who really engaged in the game keep on coming back to visit the site. Not only does the site offer amazing, amusing user-friendly interactive navigation, it also has available technical support for those who need it anytime, anywhere in the world. Isn’t that an amazing offer? More than the aesthetic beauty of the site’s color and layout, real game begins when you log in.
Online slots are really the game to play because it provides online amusement for those who want to enjoy. Or more than that, most gamers or costumers are truly attracted to amazing prizes up for grabs.

Need Cash? Get Payday Loans

Thursday, January 17, 2008

My friend’s children have been sick for days already. In fact, most of the past days they were still contemplating whether to bring them to the hospital or not. They were truly hesitant to bring the children to the doctor for treatment due to financial difficulty or problem. Since they do not have medical insurance or health coverage, it was hard for them to figure out how to shoulder the expenses. What about if you are in the same situation, what would you do?
Emergencies do happen, anytime and to whomever. It is more difficult if health of family members is at stake. Because in this much commercialized world, money truly talks. Money is not everything but it is important.
Shouldn’t we be glad if there are cash advance we can make? At least whatever situation we are in, there are reliable payday loans we can easily avail of should there be needs that cannot truly wait for our next payday.
Yes, payday loan is available anytime now, for personal emergencies. The only thing one should do is have a checking account available so that anytime money can be deposited right away. Yes, that easy and that convenient, for anyone who needs it.

How long have you been blogging?
- I think around May 2007. But I did not immerse myself right into it, right away.

What inspired you to write a blog, and who are your mentors?
- No one mentored. I groped my way. But since I like to write, i wasinspired to chronicle my thoughts.

What are the 3 things that you love about being online?
- information is endless.
- meeting and keeping friends
- keeps my brain cells alive through reading and thinking, plus i earn from what i love to do: writing

What are the three things that you struggle with in the online-world?
- i get too immersed i forget the time and other work i need to do.
- sometimes I can't stop surfing even in the wee hours of the morning.
- i am becoming too anti-social since i feel this will suffice my social needs.

I am passing this to liza, arlene, vina retchel and summer

Be Insured

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

Are you familiar with disability insurance? I just got across it only recently and found it truly a requisite for people who risks their limbs and life in their profession on a day to day basis. Actually, I think it should be a necessity for all professionals.
Online disability insurance quotes are available with just one click. It is very convenient to be informed and avail anytime. I think securing disability insurance is a decision no one will ever regret.
Wouldn’t it be a guarantee to us and to our loved ones; that any time we encounter sudden misfortune or accidents there’s a disability insurance to rely on?

Help Always Available

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

There are many things happening everyday. Mostly they happen beyond our control. Most of the time it’s either we get affected or we act on them pro-actively. In this competitive, fast-paced world of ours, it is hard to earn a living without really working to the maximum of one’s ability or skills. More than skills and hard work, one has to have the ability to cope with sudden financial changes. Otherwise, it would be difficult to survive. But even if we give our best, there are times that we really need funds for sudden surge of emergencies.

Thank goodness there are helps available, like payday loans.

If financial emergencies occur it is easier to avail of payday loans from an institution with best rates and fast approvals. Financial help is always available online. Yes, it is that easy, convenient and fast. It is safe and secure rather than selling one’s personal property. This is the better alternative. No more worries!

Safety is the Key!

Sunday, January 13, 2008

Are you competitive? Do you push yourself to the extremes just to get your goals done? Do you educate or make yourself learn further to be the best there is in the market? How do you hone your skills further to be on the top of the heap?

Skills-wise, I am almost left behind compared to the young ones. But there’s always an opportune time to learn, right? As long as one is open to learn and be trained, the field to excellence never closes.
Just like in the construction business, one has to learn what Stephen Covey calls: Sharpening the saw. One should be always ready in order to contend with all the rest in the business. It is not just being ready but knowing the ropes to health and safety of this business is a must.

So sharpening your skills to be ready for future use through apprenticeship and training is very easy to do. If you know how to do it and you are is set to be ready, plus truly qualified and with awareness regarding health and safety in the construction business.

Easy Process and Fast Funding

Saturday, January 12, 2008

We just opened a new business. My 4 siblings and my mom pooled finances to start a small convenience store near our place. It was a calculated risk since most of my siblings are really into business nowadays.

Start up financing is easier these days. Many institutions offer easy processing with excellent service for fast funding. It is easier to set-up a business when everything is offered at our convenience.

Hopefully, it will escalate into a progressive, reliable investment for future financial needs for all of us.

Our Brains Have Color?

Wednesday, January 09, 2008

Nancy tagged me.
How astounding to know our brains have colors...
Do you believe in this?

Your Brain is Blue

Of all the brain types, yours is the most mellow.
You tend to be in a meditative state most of the time. You don't try to think away your troubles.
Your thoughts are realistic, fresh, and honest. You truly see things as how they are.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about your friends, your surroundings, and your life.

Bet On It

Wednesday, January 09, 2008

When we make our commitments, we make a bet. We expect an outcome. We expect both the positive and the negative. However when it comes we adapt to it. But as humans it is natural to expect what is convenient to us. Right?
Everyday when we face life, we bet on it. We do not really know what will happen tomorrow but we still bet that it is going to be okay.
What do you bet on? Everyday I do mine.
Just like how we deal with life, online amusement betting is one of the risks many people take these days. It is more secure with the range of services they provide, such as online poker. Can you imagine offers with full array of services with just one manageable account? That’s easy betting.

It is hard. But here's an attempt...

1. God. Who will forever be around to love me. The thought that: anytime, anywhere and with no busy line I can dial G-O-D is reason
enough to embrace my life and the unknown beyond...

2. My family (husband and three smart tres marias) is another reason why I am thankful. The raison d'ĂȘtre for my and would be existence lies on them.

3. Relationships. All kinds which make me learn and grow: friends, colleague, acquaintances, etc

4. My mother and 7 siblings, because there is no reason not to be thankful about them. They are the non-negotiable part of my life.Period.

5. Material and financial blessings that pour down from Divine source. Sometimes I wonder: what have i done to be so blessed?

6. Good health. There's no exchange for this wealth.

7. My husband. He is just one whole package of a blessing...especially delivered for me! How I am blessed to always unravel a part of this blessing everyday...

8. Skills and abilities I am able to share and give to others, i am thankful that I have them.
These are the things I am thankful for. I cannot truly condense a million to just eight. But at least i tried.

Thanks to

Today I went to work.

I did not feel like going, but I did.

I did not like to go, but off to work I started my week.

That’s what commitment is all about, right?

Commitment is doing things, not because I feel like doing it, but I need to do it. People rely on me to do it.

When I went to work 4 people were missing. Filling-in has to be done. RE-structuring of the scheduled activities was done, quickly because people were waiting. Plans have to be overhauled, changed.

Isn’t that what we just hate to be in? When plans are done and the unpredictable happens, that is the summation of STRESS.

But it was my choice to be stressed or not. I had a choice to be reactive OR be proactive.

I chose the latter.

Thus, today I learned that it is my choice to manage change. Whether I plan what’s to happen or not. Whether events beyond my control happen or otherwise, I still have a choice.

Today I choose NOT to be stressed. That's what matters most.

It is healthier to accept, than to be stressed.

How about you? What stresses you? How do you refuse to stress yourself?

Long ago, I have read that parenting is no easy task. There are no schools where would-be parents go to achieve parenting diplomas or post-grad degrees. No parent gets to prepare 100% for the onslaught of responsibilities that come upon arrival of kids in the family. Parenting is an experiential learning process. It is a journey. DO you agree with me here?

That is what is ironic: Humans get to prepare for degrees and life-long careers just to be financially prepared but seldom do we give time to really educate ourselves with parenting skills.

Parenting books helped me through rearing my three daughters. But more than what the books offer, experiential and situational management helped me. Since I became a parent at the ages of 24, 25 and 28, it was not a walk-in-the-park experience. Up to now it is still a challenge. However, the challenge keeps me to live with a purpose: to nurture three human beings who would later be citizens.

Being a parent is one tough responsibility, but intrinsically rewarding. I get to watch my kids grow while I learn with them. I get to see life forward-looking because my children give me reasons to be a better person, everyday. I am able to keep my Faith alive because, more than skills and planning, parenting for me needs a grand dose of Divine intervention.

What about you?

Award for me!!!

Thursday, January 03, 2008

Wow! Virtual life becomes exhilarating when shared with friends, right?
Prettylifeonline bestowed this award for me...

Truly, madly I am grateful for this.

If my blog is a treasure, how much more for these blogs I am passing this award to:

Mimi of Listen to your Grammie

Juliana of Juliana's Lair

Sher of Just Her

More power to all of you!

I will be reporting to work tomorrow. I do not like to go back, yet. I am so into this long-anticipated break, aren't you?

The last few minutes before this writing i was in deep thoughts and introspection: Do i still like what i do? Do i still enjoy what i do? Do i look forward to my work? Answer to all the questions aforementioned: NO. And that is to be honest from the core of my innermost being. I cannot dictate how i feel, right? I cannot force myself to be deceived with what i truly and honestly perceive to be the truth from within.
Going back to work tomorrow is like punishing myself to do things which i have been doing for (what seems to be) the last millennium. Really. No exaggeration here.

I am burned-out. I need a change.
I have to decide.
But NOW is not the right time, yet.
When will be the right time?

New Year's Traditions

Tuesday, January 01, 2008

I got this meme from Juliana. I figure, it has to be done now and forwarded because it is kind of time sensitive.

Here goes:

What are some of your new year’s good luck traditions?

Copy the person and persons’ names that sent it to you and add your own at the bottom of the list. It really helps to build community.

Lets start it here!

*My mom used to collect some coins and when the new year comes she put the coins in a bowl and shake it to create sounds. She said its good luck for money throughout the year. And also wearing dotted dresses on new year don’t know why. CC/chalyza/keep

*My old folks always told us to avoid spending money on new years day. They said, once you spend on the first day of the year, you like to spend the rest of the year.
Behind d Scenes of ME/ Retchel’s Pure Life/ /
A little bit of me

*I grew up believing that if you have some money on your pocket (whatever you’re wearing) come New Year’s eve it will ensure steady flow of income throughout the year. The other belief is that the main door of the house should be wide open come New Year’s eve so that good luck will be ushered in. Juliana of MY WORLD and JULIANA’S LAIR.

* We always lit fireworks (Chinese belief) as part of tradition to scare off "bad spirits" and start the New Year with a blast. Hailey of Hailey's Beats and Bits

Now I am passing this to Liza, Arlene, Rachel and Reche

A Balanced Lifestyle

Tuesday, January 01, 2008

Everyone wants to have a healthy and balanced lifestyle, right? It is not easy to do and if we try to know our priorities, but it can be done. One way to manage our lifestyle well is to focus more time for our health and well-being. Using natural safe products for our body is a wonderful start.
Starting with a home-based opportunity to establish your own business is a sure-fire way to achieve a good life. Not only would we be able to manage our lifestyle with ease, but we can also have the possibility not be enslaved with the traditional 8am-5pm jobs.
More time in our hands, means more option to create a healthy living. Consequently, a balanced lifestyle means a better future!
