Entrecard Works Now!

 The image above is courtesy of Entrecard

I am glad that Entrecard website is finally back. I have been trying to do my Entrecard droppings since this morning but supposedly their website got a bug and I am happy that they already fix the problem. Well, today was a very awesome day. My husband and I went to church and renew our faith to God.

Honestly, to tell you the truth I am not so looking forward for tomorrow because I will be having my first quiz but I am hoping that studying the lesson will enable me to answer the questions. Plus, I have to meet with my group mate to talk about our group presentation. I am wishing everyone a blessed new week!

Radiant Skin

I have actually been going to the gym for the past several weeks but since I am suffering from flu sickness I have to quarantine myself and just stay here at home. There is one thing that I have noticed though since I went back to the gym; there's a room full of brand new tanning beds for anyone who wants to achieve a beautiful tan color. Since it is freezing a lot of people opt to tan their body using a tanning bed.

By the way, if you are planning to purchase your own personal tanning bed then you may want to check this online store called ESB Tans which is the top leading provider for all your tanning needs. They offer products such as tanning booths, bronzing bed, stand up tanning, bronzing and red light therapy, home tanning beds and more. Also, tanning your skin using a tanning bed is one way of getting those nutrients that your body needs especially Vitamin D also known as the sunshine vitamin that all of us need.

Hurry and check out the most affordable home tanning beds from ESB Tans online store today!

My Husband Bakes

I feel so weak today because I have flu and I can't even taste the food that I eat which really sucks. My husband was very kind and he bakes this cake for me called Pineapple Upside Down. Honestly, when I am sick I get so picky when it comes to food and hubby is trying to see if he can encourage me to at least eat a little. I just hope I feel better so I can go to church tomorrow. I am lucky that I can always count on my man. I love you honey!

Velvet Ropes and Stanchions

I've attended a couple of concerts here in Texas and New Mexico since I arrived here in the United States of America almost five years ago and one thing that I always notice during crowd gathering events is that they have some sorts of barricades or velvet rope to prevent people from going up in the stage. It is actually quite chaotic during this event because people from all walks of life gather at one venue for the purpose of meeting their favorite musicians, actors or actresses from Hollywood.

Can you imagine not having this crowd control product? It would be a chaotic end result for everyone. These items I mention above are not only seen during concerts but it is also common use in banks and at the movie theater. In the Philippines where I come from, stanchions are commonly seen in banks and theaters. It actually provides safe security for everyone who is waiting in line for their turn to finish their business transaction.

I find this crowd control product as one of the smartest things that was ever invented.

Prevent Insomnia by Eating This Foods

I have to admit I am part of those thousands of people who are suffering from insomnia. I am really happy after I've read this article from Discovery Channels which talks about five foods that actually stops insomnia before it starts. Below are five foods that helps prevent insomnia.

  • Brown Rice- they help control and calm our nervous system so we can fall asleep
  • Spinach- is loaded with magnesium which calms our entire body and help us sleep well
  • Pumpkin seeds- a great source of magnesium and help us relieve stress
  • Cottage cheese- is loaded with tryptophan which is a sleep inducing amino acid that relaxes our body and mind
  • Sesame seeds- high in carbohydrates and tryptophan which is perfect before heading to bed
Take note: if you want to fall asleep fast give up the caffeine!

Helmets

I am always fascinated with motorcycle ever since I can remember. In the Philippines, normally families own a motorcycle because it is a lot cheaper compared to purchasing a four wheeled vehicle. Well, my cousin taught me how to drive the motorcycle when I was eighteen and I have so much fun driving it around town. One of the first things that my cousin told me to always remember is to wear my Motorcycle Helmets. He owns a few helmets and I am lucky I got one.

Anyways, I recently visited Moto Direct online store which sells various selections of motorcycle items such as HJC Helmets, motorcycle jackets, motorcycle jackets, motocross gears, motorcycle luggage, motorcycle covers, motorcycle gloves, motorcycle rain gears, motorcycle pants, motorcycle boots, motorcycle apparels and many more. They offer motorcycle products for men and women across America and they offer FREE shipping for orders over $100 and up.

Remember, if you are not happy with the product you got from Moto Direct online store you will have up to one year to return the products free of charge. What are you waiting guys? Take advantage of this offer by clicking any of the links above.

The Hunt for Western Classic Movies

I am on a mission of finding all the Western Classic movies from the 1940's to the 1950's for my husband step father. I really have a good relationship with him because he treats me like his own daughter in law. I can talk about anything to him and he raised my husband so well and I thank him for that. He will be turning sixty-eight years old by March and we are planning to give him a huge birthday party.

My husband lived with him since he was eight years old and five years ago my husband left under his care to start his new life with me as a couple. Although my husband and I had a lot going on with our career and school but we make it a point to visit his Step Dad every week and take him out anywhere.

In return I want to find him all those Western Movies and War movies that he wanted to collect over the years. He hates technology and since I embrace technology I will be providing him with all beautiful things that technology can do for us.

The Warrior's Way Movie Review Etc!

I feel so happy yesterday knowing that we did our part to help the missionaries from our church. Actually, it was our schedule to feed the missionaries yesterday so two Sundays ago we told our full time missionaries that they will have their dinner at our apartment. I made them some Filipino dish and thankfully no one complains about my cooking abilities. All I received from them are great compliments and I feel relieve knowing that all my hard work is paid just by saying "thank you".

Actually, one of the missionaries had already tried some Filipino dish before but his new companion has not tried it ever. So, he politely requested me if is there any way that I can cook the same dish that he tried before and of course I said yes. It feels really good knowing that I was able to help our church missionaries.

Well, after they left our apartment, I ask my husband to drive me to my place of work to get my check and I also brought some food for his step dad to eat. Then we decided to go and watch the movie "The Warrior's Way". The movie was pretty violent and I would not recommend for your children to watch it.

Overall, my entire day yesterday was very pleasant; how about yours folks?

Bohol Calamay

I have been asking my family to send me some calamay from the beautiful island of Bohol where I used to live because I had been craving for quite some time now. I always remember that every time my grandma visits my other Uncle from another town she always brought as a couple of calamay on her way back.

For those of you who never tasted a calamay or is not familiar about this sweet delicacy then let me tell you something. Calamay is made of coconut milk, brown sugar and ground glutinous rice. I love to put calamay on my sandwich to replace jams or jellies. Calamay are put inside a halved smooth coconut shells and is sealed by red crepe paper. Well, so far I did not find any at the Filipino store, sigh!

Burlesque Movie Review

Burlesque movie is really great for people that are musically inclined. I have the chance to watch this movie the other night and the movie really gives me the inspiration to practice more on my singing talent. The whole plot of the movie is wonderful and it captures the dream of a small town girl played by Christina Aguilera who dreamed of becoming a great singer. After she moved away from Iowa she found herself jobless and looking for a job in LA. She winds up going to a burlesque bar and wanted to apply for a job as a dancer but Tess who is played by Cher doesn't want her there.

After watching this movie I became a huge fan of Christina Aguilera and Cher for the first time in my life. I love their vocals, it is powerful and moving. I will definitely purchase a copy of this Burlesque movie.

We have a lot of things going on with us especially with my last journey of my immigration here in the United States of America.

Well, one of their activities will include a canal holiday cruise to the rivers and canals of Europe, visiting museums and shopping around Europe. I envy this idea but I am excited for them. Anyways, my husband and I are still deciding whether to join for this family trip or do the trip as a couple hopefully by next year.

Seth Rogen Is The Green Hornet

I had a blast last night after hanging out with my girl friends from work. Miss G fetches me at my apartment and the rest of the group was waiting for us at the movie theater. We decided to watch the movie The Green Hornet with Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz and newcomer Jay Chou.

The focal of the movie focus on Britt Reid who is played by Seth Rogen. He is the sole heir to a largest company of newspaper. After his father died, he meets this guy name Kato who is played by Jay Chou. Kato works for his dad and he was hired by Britt Reid to be his assistant executive associate after his father died. Kato helps Britt Reid realize his dream of becoming a hero and he called himself "The Green Hornets".

I found the movie very entertaining and super hilarious. I will probably be watching the movie again tomorrow with my husband.

Photo Album

I had been dreading to clean our closet for a while and I finally able to do it last night. I was very happy that it looks more organize now compared to what it look like before. Anyways, I have so much junk in my closet such as my old shoes, photobooks, box filled with mailed letters, undergarment, clothes, and books. Well, I let go of some things that I don't really need it anymore and I am planning to donate them this weekend.


Well, speaking of photo books I found some old albums from my husband's family. It was really great seeing old pictures of my husband while he was still a newly born up until he was already in high school. I am glad that he really keeps those pictures for future viewing of our future children. I on the other don't have much picture left on my childhood because our house was destroyed by a typhoon.

After that I promise myself to take as much picture as I can and keep them safe so my future descendant can know me. I always remember that famous saying and I quote "Pictures are worth a thousand words".

Web Domains

I finally purchase my two domains for my two blog links here online. Honestly, I had purchase my two domains several days ago but I am such a big procrastinator. I must admit, that new things seem a bit overwhelming for me to handle especially when I have a lot of things going on my mind. I feel rewarded after I purchase my own domains because it has been years that I've wanted to at least own one.

Later on today, I will be going back to school to attend my spring classes that will end around the first week of May. I am looking forward to meet my new professors and I am hoping that this semester will bring great success on my part as well as it will help me absorb important information that will help me along the way.

Lastly, I will do my best to put my two domains before this week ends. Happy Tuesday everyone!

I'm Craving for Leche Flan


I am home alone again while hubby is still at his place of work. I am watching the food network and for some reason I have the urge to eat this delicious dessert called Leche Flan. Making this type of dessert is not that hard and I am planning to make a couple of Leche Flan on my godson's party next weekend.

Honestly, I miss living a simple life in the Philippines with my family. I choose to be here because I love my husband more than anything in this world. I know that one day I will achieve my goal of having my family around me and I am looking forward to that big event.

New Carpets Soon

After a few days of deciding whether to move out from our current apartment, my husband and I come to a conclusion to stay here for another year and renew our lease. We sign the lease earlier today and we both strongly felt that we made the right decision for the two of us. One of the things the manager asks us is whether we need a new carpet installed for the whole room. I respond by saying that we badly needed one especially on the living room because shampooing the carpet isn't helping at all.

Anyways, the apartment manager schedules us to have the Carpet Installation next week and I am more than happy to have the apartment maintenance come in to our apartment home with or without our presence. I trust the people who manage our apartment complex so I am not worried  about having them do their work while my husband and I are away.

Pick Your Rain Chain Today!

When my husband and I visited my sister in law in Las Cruces, New Mexico I have noticed that there is a rain chain hanging on her roof and on her gutter. These rain chains look very trendy because not only it helps funnel the rain water from the roof but it also made a great decor. After I saw this wonderful chains rain link, I have thought about getting one for my family back home and for my husband's step dad's home. They can definitely use it to funnel the water from the roof of my parents house since raining season will start soon.

Control Your Nerves

I have noticed that every time I give a talk at church or when my boss calls me I always feel nervous and uncomfortable. My heart race a hundred miles when I'm nervous and I feel lucky to have read this article from the Woman's World Magazine and DJ Tesh that talks about calming your nerves in 15 seconds to 5 minutes. Here are the lists on what to do.

  • If you have five minutes before giving a speech then you may want to chew a gum to help calm your nerves. It help relaxes the muscles in the jaw and neck which is where most people hold their tension.
  • If you have two minutes before facing a stressful situation then you may want to pinch yourself. Squeeze the webbing between your thumb and index finger for 30 seconds. It’s a calming acupuncture point. Then, think of one word and repeat it quietly to yourself. It’s a simple meditation technique. 
  • If you have one minute to calm your nerves then you may want to tighten up. Contract all your muscles, hold for five seconds, then release. That sends a signal to your brain to stop releasing stress chemicals. You’ll quickly feel calmer. Then, start humming a tune. It stimulates your body’s relaxation response by regulating your breathing, slowing your heart rate, and triggering calming chemicals.
  • If you only have fifteen seconds to calm your nerves then you may want to take three deep breaths. Take the first, and hold it for one second, then repeat. Simply doing that can lower your blood pressure between 10 and 20 points! It also brings oxygen to the brain which helps you feel more alert. Then stand up straight. Taking a moment to improve your posture relieves tension in the neck, shoulders, back and legs. 
Take note:
I may have used the words from the author and I want to give them credit for that.

Aries Horoscope

I don't normally read horoscopes but today I've read mine for a change. Here is an overview of my horoscope below for today.

"You need to have patience with today's big issues -- they don't resolve easily, and the more you push (or pout), the more they resist. The answer comes slowly, and through group effort".

I find it very interesting and by the way, I got this from Shine by Yahoo.

Apartments

We have a huge population of military families here in my place because we have a military base. Actually, most of the Filipinos that I've met in my four years of living in Texas are military wives or one of their family members are serving in the United States Army. Generally, they are originally from the other fifty states who were assigned to work in the military base in Texas.

I have noticed that there is a huge demand of city apartments around my area and a lot of businesses are opening. I am more than happy to know this because there is a huge assurance that we will not be out of job in the long run. My husband and I have been apartment renters for over four years now and it might take awhile for us to get our own house but we are surely working on that.

More family time resolution for 2011

One thing that I worry about quite often is that we'll look back on our time years down the road and worry that we never spent as much time together as a family as we should have. Kids grow up so fast that it's like you blink and then they're heading off to college. Therefore, I made a family New Year's resolution for 2011 that we're going to make more of an effort to spend time together.

I went online to come up with some fun ways that we could spend some more time together and when I was doing that I randomly found this website with satellite internet packages and after I read a little more information about it, I signed our household up for one of them.

I have a few different things that I've come up with to do as part of our family New Year's resolution, which include family game night, hiking trips and even weekend trips together. I just want us to have fun together more often because I think that when we're at home in the same house we spend way too much time separately.

Icycle Shrub

I would like to share this picture I got from a friend when they were hit by a blanket of snow in Georgia. I really think that this picture speaks a thousand words. I totally love how the leaves are coated with ice. See it below!

Checks Anyone?

When I first got hired from the company where I am working now three plus years ago I remembered that one of the question they ask me while signing my contract was if I want to received my pay check through direct deposit or through company checks. My husband told me to check the box where it says direct deposit because it is more convenient for me because it will be automatically deposited through my bank account. I am happy that I heed to his advice because I was about to check the option where I will receive an actual check just like old times.

The current trend these days is for your companies to directly deposit your earning through your checking or savings account unless specified that they are not offering any direct deposit. I actually find this new option very easy and more convenient because its hassle free and I don't have to wait in line to cash in my check. I love the evolution of time!

Business Card Design

 I am still waiting for my place of work to send our W's so my husband and I can already prepare to file our income tax return for 2010. We filed jointly with our income tax return and I felt that it actually work better for us. After I arrived from the bank I went directly to our mailbox and check if there's any new letters that arrived today. I received my new ATM card from my bank today since my old ATM card will expire this month.

Today while chit chatting with a friend from Florida via phone for a bit I found out that she order this amazing and beautiful business cards custom design and she is more than happy to send a sample to me on the mail. She have been a naturalized American citizen for over 10 years now and she is about as old as my mother. She owns a couple of hair and nail salon.

One of my long term goals is to venture into a restaurant business in the future. I hope and pray that I will achieve those dreams in the future.

Brochures

I feel happy after receiving some good news from my family back home in the Philippines despite some disappointments news I got from my place of work. I just finished chatting with my family about five minutes ago and they told me that two of my younger sisters will be heading home next week and my Uncle is ready to open another branch of his restaurant next month.

Well, my Uncle wants to order custom brochures that he can use for his business. He was hoping that he can have it on or before his new branch of restaurant opens. He wants to personalize the brochures so it will truly bring out what his business is all about to his new clients. Apparently, my Uncle wanted my mother to manage the business since they were business partners a long time ago.

Suffice to say, I am really excited for my Uncle and we are here to support him!

Rate Your Web

For the longest period of time I have actually been considering purchasing my own domains for my four blogs. I have thought it for some time and I think I am ready to take the plunge. I have been planning this for about three years now but I just don't have the patience to check out some of the webhostingpad ratings to make sure that I get the most of it.

I am more careful than ever to spend my hard earning because I have other priorities in my life. But since I am doing this blogs as an outlet of my emotions and everyday shenanigans;  I wanted to have my own domain that I can totally called my own. I have chatted with a few of my close friends from the world of blogging and I wanted to hear some of their inputs about getting my own domain.  All of them give me a positive feedback and they said that they never regretted getting one of their own.

Well, I am more eager than ever to try this soon. I will probably get one domain for now and let myself be the judge.

Happy 1st Birthday to our Godson Jaden

My first godson will turn one year old this coming January 14th. I still remember the day when I first laid my eyes on him; he is such a miracle baby for my best friend here in Texas. I fell in love with him the moment I cradled him in arms. Well, my friend confided with me that she doesn't have so much time to shop around for birthday party supplies since school just barely started after the long Christmas break.

 The birthday party theme for my godson Jaden will be about Winnie the Pooh. I think it made my eyes pop out from my eye socket after I found out about the birthday theme because I am a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh and other cartoon characters. Well, my Kumare made me a list of things that I needed to check out for the party. We will need some table cloth, bags for the prizes, napkins, hats, balloons, disposable plates and cups and a Winnie the Pooh Pinata.

I am glad that I still have a lot of time to look around because the party is schedule for January 22nd at 3 in the afternoon. I will be helping to decorate the place on the 21st plus I will be cooking some Filipino dish for the said party.  We are looking forward to celebrate our godson's first birthday!

Hospital Scrubs

My sister had been requesting me to send her some medical nursing scrubs that she can wear when she goes to work as a registered nurse in one of the hospitals in the Philippines. I actually keep on forgetting about her scrubs and I totally lost track about this for quite some time. While waiting for my family to get online, I have the chance to check some websites and I found this site called Blue Sky Scrubs very interesting.

The Blue Sky Scrubs is an online store which sells a huge selection of scrub sets, scrub hats for men and women, women's scrubs, men's scrubs, blue sky kid's scrubs, soft shell jackets, women's shirt, men's shirt, designer's nursing uniforms and more. I really like their product so far because it is trendy, fashion forward and the colors is eye popping.

Now I am looking forward for pay day at my place of work so I can order my younger sister a new set of nursing scrubs from Blue Sky Scrubs. Check this beautiful picture below and see it for yourself.

Candy On the Cane


Last night hubby brought me a whole box of Christmas items that he got from the store for $1. It consists of Christmas table cover, Christmas cotton candy, Christmas stockings, Christmas Candy Cane and more. I was very please and I am excited to send some of those items to my family in the Philippines.

How's your Sunday evening so far everyone?

Heading out to the Liberty Bowl

17000 has been a great year for college football. Exciting games and a championship game with two unbeaten teams. I'll be leaving the friendly confines of Atlanta and making a 6-hour trip west to Memphis where the Georgia Bulldogs will be playing Central Florida in the Autozone Liberty Bowl.

Bowl games have been a part of the football culture in America for over 000 years. The way I look at it, there are worse places to spend New Year's Eve than in Memphis watching football.

The game is on New Year's Eve this year, so a good day to head out of town will be December 30. That morning the car will be packed with warm clothes and enough tailgate supplies for a small group. I'll set the ADT ALARM and bid farewell to my home for three days.

The game should be competitive and there is great BBQ everywhere in Memphis. It might even be nice to see how Graceland is decorated for the holidays. Bowl games give fans of two teams that normally don't play a chance to get acquainted. Bowl games give the teams, coaches, and fans a chance to celebrate a successful year for these student athletes. Go Dawgs!

Thanks for the post, Bernard Vasquez

O How Lovely Was the Morning

Happy Sunday everyone, May each one of us be spiritually recharge and ready for another week to come. Today, I had the opportunity to hear and immerse myself with the beautiful words from the scriptures. I always love Sunday because this is the time for me to be spiritually feed compared to the other rigorous days that I go to work. It gives me comfort to hear the word of Christ from our church leaders as well as by reading my own scripture at home.

Wishing everyone to have a blessed Sunday and May we continue to give our thanks to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. The image below is courtesy of Google image.

Garden Salad

I was able to save about three dollars by making our own garden salad instead of purchasing the one that is already in the bag. Hubby always likes to eat salads before eating the main dish and so I am extremely happy that I was able to make some salad for our dinner. I cut some lettuce and carrots. My husband has the choice of putting a thousand island dressing or ranch dressing but I certainly prefer the latter.

Dysport Treatment

One particular friend who happens to live in the beautiful Aloha state of Hawaii is been very articulate about the way she looks. I have known her ever since I can remember because both our families were neighbors before. I regularly chatted with her and recently she had informed me that she is planning to undergo a procedure in the future called Maui Dysport which is kind of similar to receiving Botox treatment.

I was even joking with her that I am the one who badly needed a repair on my skin because I am always stress out with my career. I told her that I have not seen any signs of wrinkles of some sort on my face for now but I am sure in the years to come it will eventually show up and I will certainly do my best to stop the aging of my skin.

Anyways, I totally understand what she had been through. She wants to feel beautiful inside and out and I commend her for that. Hopefully, I will age gracefully in my own rightful time.

Does New Year's Rockin Eve Still Rock?

As my husband and I settle down to watch the exciting New Year's Eve programs, I am sure we will both go to New Year's Rockin Eve, and try to figure out who those people are. In the old days I kept up with pop music a little as well as 'real rock music.' My husband though, he'll definitely think those people are cheesy. Even I wish they'd show some Nine Inch Nails or maybe have Ozzy come out to wish us Happy New Years.

Now we will be watching on cannonsatellite TV, but I remember his complaints that year he came over and had to watch my old black and white before we got married. I was never much for TV in those days. I preferred radio, or quiet and a good book. I didn't fair much better at his house because he's one of those guys who likes to listen to music very loudly and watch wide screen TV with the sound only a little lower at the same time, which I find to be a hideous form of sensory overload.

No chance of sensory overload this year watching New Year's Rockin Eve. The line up looks dry, but we will still watch because it's tradition. I do wish they'd spice it up a bit, but it will no doubt beat the competition. Of course at age 50, I don't have a clue what Fergie sounds like. It took me years to figure out they weren't talking about the Duchess of York. At any rate we will watch and learn.

Logo Designer

I recently learned that the owner of the company where I am working at right now hired another Logo Design Company who is task to create another outstanding logo for our company. Everybody at my place of work is excited to see the new concept because it will distinguish us  from other store around our area. I actually have a collection of every uniform I have ever since I work for this company for the past three years and I am really proud to be a part of the evolution of our company.

Anyways, tomorrow will be another big day at my place of work because the health department is schedule to do their yearly inspection. Actually, they do their inspection every three months to assure that our company passed the health department requirement to run the business for public consumption. Hopefully, everything will turn out fine and I am looking forward to meet the health inspector agent tomorrow.

Build Your Body

I went back to the gym with my hubby for the first time in two months last night and oh boy I feel great. It is very refreshing for me to start all over again but one thing I have in my mind while doing my workout routine is that I will be healthier and more active in the long run. New Year means a new me; I want to look great for myself and for my husband also. One of my biggest goals this year is to shed a few pounds and achieve my ideal weight before year 2011 ends.

Last night, while I was running on the treadmill I've heard my husband talks to a male friend from the gym who likes to participate in bodybuilding competition.  He was showing some techniques that we can use to mold our body into a perfect shape through exercising and lifting weights. But one thing he remind us is that exercise alone is not enough to lose weight but we also need to start watching our food intake.

I am looking forward to see the new me in the long run; wish me luck people!

Victoria's Secret and Bath and Body Works Semi-Annual Sale

I have always been a fan of Victoria's Secrets and Bath and Body Works ever since my husband and I started chatting online. I am glad that I am always able to purchase some of my favorite items during their semi-annual sales which I also send to my family in the Philippines. Here are some of their products I got during their semi-annual sales since last week and it is still going on.

I got some lip gloss and eye shadows from Victoria's Secret and two hand wash soap from Bath and Body Works. I actually save a total of $35 for the products below.

All Your Insurance Needs

Finding the perfect online insurance is like finding a needle in the haystack. One of my good friends whose daughter recently arrived from the Philippines is now looking forward to drive the car that her family purchases for her. I totally understand her feelings of wanting to be able to go out and explore the new country where she will be residing for the rest of her life.

One thing I have learned in my four years of living here in the United States is that having insurance is really worth it. It gives you protection from whatever future emergencies you will be involved; for instance car accidents. Recently, one of my colleagues at my place of work was involve in a car accidents during the wee hours of Christmas. Her car was totally damaged and she had to be brought in the hospital. According to her, she is thankful that her insurance company response immediately after her family reported the incident to them.

The best news is that my colleague recovered quickly from the incident and we are more than grateful to welcome her back at work.

Lockers For You

New Year means new beginning for everything. I am more committed to go back to the gym and exercise more so I can get the body that I always desired for the past years. Well, hubby had shared with me a few days ago that when he went back to the gym he noticed that they put new Lockers in the guys section of the gym. 

According to him, those Gym Lockers are really awesome because they are more reliable. He is now more comfortable leaving his wallet and his wedding ring on his own locker. Today, I had the opportunity to visit some websites and I stumbled upon this website called More Lockers who is having their online Lockers for sale this week. I observed that they offer different lockers such as School Lockers, Wood Lockers, Specialty Lockers, Standard Lockers, Quick Ship Lockers, Kids Lockers and many more.

One of my favorite lockers that I would love to get for my future office will be this picture below. It is a Double Tier Extra Wide Designer Locker 3. The material and the color is just perfect for my taste. Hurry and check this out!

Happy, Happy New Year 2011

Our New Year's celebration went well. I was working yesterday for five hours and after I got out from my place of work I went home right away to start making some food. I made some noodles (bihon), and pork afritada (stewed meat) and hubby ordered some pizza. I finished cooking the food at exactly 10:30 PM and I still have time to get ready to welcome the New Year with much anticipation and hope.

I pray that this New Year will bring a lot of opportunities for everyone including myself and my husband. Well, here's a photo of the little buffet we had at home.
