Pork Ginagmay for Dinner!

Good evening everyone! I am finally back in my mojo after what happened last week in the Philippines. My family is safe although the aftershocks still continues as of today. Either way, life in my island must go on. My family had been helping a lot of organizations in giving relief to the other families that are more affected in the other towns.

By the way, I got out early today and had the chance to do some grocery shopping. I decided to make this delicious dish which is very popular in my little island of Bohol called "Pork Ginagmay". My DH was so amazed and was giving me great compliments about the food that I made for dinner. He was so happy that I made this dish for him. Check out the picture below and tell me what you think?

Xoom Coupon Code for October 2013

Emergencies do come when you least expect it. I have shared with you guys on my previous posting last week that my hometown in the Philippines was hit by an earthquake of 7.2 magnitudes. My family needed the money immediately because they were out of food and that they needed medicine for some of my family members. Thankfully, some of my friends online shared with me the coupon code for Xoom which took off the service fee amount of the money transfer I made for my family.

For those of you who are also Xoom users the coupon code for this month is OCTGIVE. Goodbye for now and enjoy!

A 7.2 Magnitude Earthquake Hit my Hometown of Bohol, Philippines

When I arrived home from my place of work last Monday I never knew that some bad news were waiting for me to find out. Just like every other day, I log in to my Facebook account to see if my family left me a message or if they are online. I was in panic after I read all the news feed because I found out that my hometown of Bohol was hit by earthquake with a 7.2 magnitude. My entire family lives in Bohol and another neighboring island called Cebu. I went to a hysterical mode and tried to contact my family by calling my mom. I did not get an answer for the longest time and of course I thought something bad must have really happened to them.

While my husband tried to console me and told me to stay calm, I tried to call them again and this time my sister answered the phone. I was crying like a mad woman and ask if everyone is alright. My sister said that everyone is okay and nobody was hurt but they have to run to the back of the house for their safety. Thankfully, October 15 was declared a holiday in Bohol because the aftermath of the calamity would have been much worse.

The one thing that really made my heart breaks was when my younger siblings told me that they were already have each backpack ready if they needed to evacuate our home and that my mother told them to run away from the house by pairs. A lot of people also were on high alert after they notice that the sea were very calm which is a warning sign that Tsunami will follows after the earthquake. Thank God it didn't happen although some areas in Bohol were greatly affected. I sincerely ask all my readers, family and friends to continue to pray for all the people in my island of Bohol and Cebu.

Vapor E-Cigs!



Are you one of the many people out there who smoke and are considering switching over to Electronic cigarettes? Well you should know that this is actually a very good decision because electronic cigarettes have a great deal of benefits over traditional cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes are great because they allow you to smoke cigarettes; however one of the first advantages is that it doesn’t produce second-hand smoke. This is especially important for people who smoke but they live in household with other family members who are not smokers. This is really a wonderful thing about electronic cigarettes because it allows you to smoke around friends and family who do not smoke themselves, so you can rest assured that they will not be affected by second-hand smoke. E-cigs are a new product of course, and fortunately they are starting to be more accepted and noticed by a lot of people because of their outstanding benefits. One of the other great benefits is that they don’t leave any ash behind, so it is really a much cleaner way to smoke cigarettes than traditional cigarettes. Then of course we should talk about the cost of E-cigs compared to traditional cigarettes. Many places sell cigarettes starting at about $5 or $6 per pack, most of the time much more expensive than that. E-cigs on the other hand usually come with a starter pack which is a little bit more expensive, but it is important to keep in mind that the E-cigs will last you much longer than a single pack of traditional cigarettes. Lastly, E-cigs are great because many places that offer E-cigs, such as www.21stcenturysmoke.com have various flavors in which to enjoy such as blueberry, cherry, grape, strawberry, cherry, apple, and even mango. Also keep in mind that if you order E-cigs from a website such as 21stcenturysmoke.com for example, they usually have a warranty of some sort. In the case of 21stcenturysmoke.com, they actually carry a 9 month quality warranty, so you can rest assured that you are getting a high quality product. So if you are a smoker, why not switch to E-cigarettes today, you, and everyone around you will definitely be glad that you did.

I Pray that I Will Feel Better Soon

I am getting tired of being sick for over a week now. I can't seem to get rid of my colds and sore throat. Also, I don't have enough time to see a physician but hopefully on my next schedule at my place of work I will have a day or two off so I can go and have myself check. My husband had been so worried about my current health issue because he had never seen me this sick since we got married.

I hope everyone will have a great three day weekend! Lastly, I would like to ask all my readers, family and friends to include me on your prayers. Thank you so much!

My husband and I do our annual road trip at least 2-3 times a year when we have enough money and time to do so. We both like to visit new places and create wonderful memories. So when EatSmart Products agreed to send me their newest product called TravelWise Packing Cube System a few months ago, I was so excited because it helps travelers out there to be more organized and it saves a lot of  time especially when it comes to packing clothes.

It features a two way easy pull zippers and it is made of light material which is perfect for light travels.

Also, TravelWise Packing Cube System from Eat Smart Products comes in different colors such as Purple, Red, Silver, Black and more.

The Great UGLee Pen Review


 I feel so lucky that UGLee Pen finally contacted me after how many months of waiting to get approval to review their popular product. UGLee Pen sent me their amazing product called ergonomic pen which are known to help people with pain or discomfort when writing. I am thankful that I finally had the chance to try out this product because I have been having problem with my wrist lately especially when I write or when I type because my wrist and fingers started to cramp. Of course, I was skeptical when I first tried this product since I have purchase plenty of pens before that didn't help my issues.

But to my surprise this ergonomic pen from UGLee Pen really works and it helps to get rid of the pain and strain that I felt when I am writing at school or when I am writing at my place of work. I never thought that there will be a huge difference when using this product from UGLee Pen but I am grateful for Dr. James Lee who invented this wonderful product who is also used by real physicians like him. Also, this comfort pen features a full size comfort grip, finger tip groves for stress free writing and it is refillable.

So what are you waiting for? Check out UGLee Pen today by liking them on Facebook or following them on Twitter.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
