Find True Love

Sharing your life with someone raised in a totally different culture and belief as you are is a very big challenge. It's hard enough to understand men with your own nationality and culture, let alone be with someone from another race. But it's our differences that will make the relationship worthwhile. And it's our love that will cross the great culture and religious gap to make us stronger.

So don't be afraid to reach out and seek the one who could give you the love you ever dream of. Even if it means crossing the borders and go for interacial dating. Sign up for free and get the chance to find the love of your life.

Time To Say Goodbye Again

Nothing can be more painful than being away from your family. But in life, we've got to be practical and strong to survive. For the chance of giving them a comfortable life and a brighter future, I have to be tough and endure the loneliness of being away from them. I know someday, all these sacrifices will bear fruit, then I won't have to be far from Jamjam to provide her everything she needs.

As they drove me off to the airport, I felt very sad seeing Jamjam so lonely. But I had to leave, and I was so relieved when she told me she understood. We took a few pictures, but I just couldn't find my USB cable. I'll upload the photos later...

Happy Birthday Pang, we love you so much!

It's Show Time

Who never dreamed to be in Las Vegas? I guess everybody wants to experience what it feels like to be in such a welcoming and gay place. I won't be surprised if they will claim they invented the word "pleasure and leisure". I do dream to witness its awesome array of bright city lights and amazing world of entertainment. This place has been the most popular destination for people who's into gambling, shopping, fine dining, etc. Name any sort of entertainment, and they have it. You'll never be disappointed. They're also known for their lightning-quick weddings. A friend told me before that you can get married and get a divorce on the very same day. Whew, that's too much to take in just one day.

But what makes Las Vegas very famous are their outstanding stage plays and shows. I could never forget the film "Showgirls", where a young drifter came to Las Vegas to become a dancer. She fought her way to become the top of the Vegas showgirls. And she succeeded, only to find out that money and fame wont last for long. It was such an inspiring story. One most of us can relate to when it comes to our own dreams and ambitions. It's not necessarily be in Las Vegas, it could also happen to us anywhere.

So if you are into spectacular shows, you better buy tickets to Las Vegas shows. Follow the link and you can get show tickets at discounted prices. You will be assured of a hassle-free and stress-free buying experience. Don't be the last to know.

Sprinkled With Water

My idea of a great house is one surrounded with a lush green yard. It should be landscaped to perfection, covered with beautiful variety of flowers and green plants. I want to see it and smell it first thing in the morning when I open my doors and windows. And I know a lot of homeowners want this kind of view too.

But I know this needs a lot of attention and maintenance. For one you will need a great sprinkler system to provide it with the most important ingredient for its survival--water. One which is effective and functioning at all times and in all kinds of weather condition. And you can only get it at BDL Company. They are one of the leading Fort Worth Sprinkler Systems companies which offer great value for your money without sacrificing premium quality and excellent services. They specialize in servicing, repairing, and caring for your sprinkler system. So all you have to do is just sit back, relax, and enjoy your magnificent view.

Having a healthy garden and green fields around your home makes you feel a lot closer to nature. It promotes fresher, cleaner air and a naturally cool surrounding. It has been proven that a healthy environment will make everyone around it healthy and happy as well. Don't you want it for your own home?

Think Slim

When I checked my weight this morning, I just couldn't believe my eyes! Actually I'm still in my denial stage right now. How have I gained that much weight in so short a time? This has to stop, and now I really mean it. I thought I would never gain weight no matter how much I eat, but now I'm not that confident anymore. As a matter of fact, I'm beginning to worry that I might not lose it no matter what I do.

I know this is not the right time to be negative. All I have to do is to stay determined and focused. I believe that there's no such thing as a miracle diet. So if you want to stay slim and at the same time healthy, it takes time and a lot of patience. Be realistic in setting your goals and think slim.

I'll start from now on... I'm slim, I slim, I'm slim... and healthy of course LOL.

Home For Everyone

If you are looking for a nice home in the Wilmington NC area, Wilmington NC Real Estate can be of great service to you. They not only help you save a great deal of your money, but also aid you in acquiring the said property at the shortest time possible. Their expertise in real estate will make your buying experience a very relaxed and unforgettable one, especially if you are first time buyers. Because they know buying a home is one of the most important times in your life, they will make it most special and memorable for you.

And the good thing about them is that they are a real estate company with a heart. They support Columbus Humane Society in providing homes to every homeless animals. They not only provide homes to people, they also find homes for those helpless animals. Aren't they just sweet?

Look Within

Gemini (May 20 - Jun 20)
After seeking answers from others, you look within. Uncomfortable as reflecting on already unsettling issues can be, persist and you'll soon reap rewards in the form of a deeper understanding of situations affecting others and yourself.

***It's hard enough to understand unfair situations affecting your life. But it's harder if it's hurting the ones you love. You really need to detach yourself from depression and be strong so you can protect them.

Aries (Mar 20 - Apr 18)
After a lengthy period during which events were frustratingly beyond your control, Wednesday's move by Mars into Aries begins a five-week cycle of personal review and transformation. There's no need to rush. Savour each day of this thrilling cycle.

Taurus (Apr 19 - May 19)
This is no time for hasty decisions. Instead regard this week's events as preparation for next Friday's new moon, which constitutes a sort of personal new year. You'll have plenty to think about and most importantly a fresh perspective about your future.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 21)
Your instinct to help others is so powerful that often you lend a hand without a thought. Ironically, when it's the reverse and others extend theirs to you, you refuse without realising it. Now, however, support is coming your way in several areas of your life. Embrace it.

Leo (Jul 22 - Aug 21)
By now you've probably realised that with times changing, certain elements of your life must also change. The question is how. This week the puzzle pieces appear, although you're unlikely to see a clear image until after next Friday's new moon.

Virgo (Aug 22 - Sep 21)
Sometimes errors, obstacles or misunderstandings can be more informative than straightforward questions. View this week's frequent and often peculiar twists in that light, and instead of simply putting things right, delve into their background.

Libra (Sep 22 - Oct 22)
For ages you've been encouraging those you care about to take the initiative. Now they do. While you're proud you're also surprisingly anxious. Deep down you fear their success means they'll no longer need you.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 20)
Recently, you've battled changes you regarded as unnecessary and a nuisance. Now a fresh perspective on them and changes in your life make you realise they're timely and vital. The resulting optimism prepares you for early May's Full Moon.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 - Dec 20)
While others have struggled with recent dramatic developments you've thrived. Having long sensed their arrival you've eagerly embraced the new and unfamiliar. You're beginning a fabulous new cycle. It would be a shame if minor issues created complications.

Capricorn (Dec 21 - Jan 19)
This week's events corner you into changes you regard as unwise. Dire as that seems, each is part of a new pattern and you're still unable to discern what's in your best interests and what isn't. So go with the flow, knowing that you can change things later.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Your view of recent developments depends entirely on whether you've recognised events as breakthroughs or are still struggling to stick with the familiar. The world around you is changing. So, too, elements of your life must change this week.

Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 19)
Even the most down to earth of Pisceans has a powerful intuitive streak, so you can sense what's coming long before others do. Yet recent events have surprised you. Uncomfortable as dwelling on these is, what you learn more than compensates for the effort.


Safety First

I believe that home is where our heart is, so we must keep it safe at all times and at all cost. There is really nothing more important than the safety and security of the ones we love, so protecting them should start right from the home. There are various threats to our home security, expert thieves and fire hazards for example.

So we must ensure to fire proof our homes and install effective fire extinguishers. Each adult member of the family should know how to safely use and operate this one. To ward off thieves, a watch dog can be very effective but might not be enough. You need to install powerful door and window locks, and if your budget still allows, a burglar alarm system would be very helpful.

It's better to be cautious, than to be sorry later. Remember, the safety of our home should be our top priority.

Reality Bites

Four days more and I'm going to leave my family again to go back to job in Dubai. Though a little part of me is happy because I'm going to see Shushu again, my heart is being wrenched by the thought of leaving Jamjam. She told me she don't need to be afraid, because she knows that we will be together again for sure. I just hope and pray that this is going to be a good year for us, so we don't have to be apart ever again.

I wonder what's happening in the hospital right now, what changes could a month do? Well I hope there's good news about our annual salary increase, and another bonus LOL. Just wishing...

Caller Wiki

When the telephone made its debut in the communication industry, we have been so thrilled and grateful for its usefulness and benefits. Imagine all the gas you saved just by calling restaurants, groceries, etc. and they will just deliver all the stuff you want right into your doorstep. Since then, telephone has been a very important facility not just in our household but also in the business industry. Until all those annoying phone calls started.

Have you ever experienced being awaken in a middle of a deep sleep just to answer a call from anyone whom you even don't know? And they will blab about things you don't even understand. Your instant reaction would be to get angry, or even furious, and then you will hung up the phone. But then, they still have the nerve to call you again. The saddest part is that you won't be able to go back to sleep because you are still seething with rage. It's really frustrating.

Now it's time you do something about it. You have every right to report callers who are disturbing you day and night. Just visit the link and you'll get to access Caller Wiki, where users get the chance to know who's behind those annoying calls. Their system stores details such as owner or company name, address, and the type of scam they are dealing. They also have a reverse phone look-up tool, so those bothersome callers won't get away with what they are doing.

Clean & Green

I forgot to post these photos taken just outside the natural spring resort in Cagayan. If you are a nature lover, I'm sure you will fall in love with this place. The air is clean and fresh, and the sound of the river flowing is very soothing to your tired nerves. The place is very relaxing and peaceful. We'll surely be back, hopefully with my whole family.

Keep our nature clean and green, and long live the earth!

CDO Trip

fun under the sun...

Just came back from a fantastic vacation in Cagayan De Oro City, where we (Me, Jam, Arena, and my sister Julie) spent a great time with my brother Eric and his family. We took the bus via Buda, and it was quite a long and tiring trip, so we haven't done much on our first day there. The fun started when we went to this spring resort, it was really amazing. The kids spent all day under the scorching heat of the sun, and the most amazing part was that, it looked like they didn't feel the heat. Although we bathed them with sunblock cream, they were still toasted at the end of the day. They said it's okay because it was all worth it. Whew, you can never argue with kids.

with our respective trophies LOL

We stayed in Cagayan for about 4 days, I know it was just short, but at least we got the time to bond with my brother, his wife and their son. It was almost perfect...except for the part where my mom, dad, and our youngest sister did not go with us.

Gift Ideas

A very good friend of mine had just delivered a month ago to a beautiful and healthy baby boy. Supposedly, I was one of his godparents. But Jam could not travel in such a bad condition, having an asthma attack and all. It was all set then, travel tickets and our special gift...

Actually this is not the actual gift, I've been searching for a perfect infant gift online when I remember a great online store where you can find anything and everything under the nurturing heat of the sun. If you're thinking about ShopWiki, then you are very much updated in terms of online shopping fashion. It is where I look for whenever I need perfect gift ideas for babies and toddlers.

So when I spotted these very cool mobiles I knew it would be perfect for Ate Myla's baby. I chose this kind of gift because I know it would be very beneficial to her baby. Don't you know that mobiles act as a safety diversion for babies stopping them from turning to their stomachs? Well, putting babies on their bellies can be quite dangerous, I've even read an article that it is more often associated with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or SIDS. Buying this one would not only give amusement to your babies, but also protect them from the possible hazards of lying on their tummies, especially when they are sleeping.

I also considered buying him educational books and games for children, but remembered he's still too young to enjoy and benefit from it. It was just too bad I wasn't able to hand him his gift. Anyway, there is still plenty of time to see him and give him his Christening present.

Get Real

Gemini (May 20 - Jun 20)
There's a fine but definite line between promising situations and those you can rely on. Because there are very few of the latter, you must be careful about who and what you put first. Seductive as those promising ideas may be, they could just as easily fail as succeed.

*** There's no harm in being cautious. As a matter of fact, it could save you a lot of trouble by practicing caution and practicality. I've been meaning to change job, in the hope of landing to a more promising career. But in the light of the recent crisis, I know I should better think, not only twice, but a good number of times.

Aries (Mar 20 - Apr 18)
Don't misread the dramas triggered by your ruler Mars' arrival in Aries as an indication action is urgent. While it's vital that you recognise issues highlighted by what arises, this is just the beginning of a lengthy cycle of questioning and self-analysis.

Taurus (Apr 19 - May 19)
With the tender hearted Venus as your ruler, you do all you can to avoid upsetting those you care about. However, if you aren't frank about potentially upsetting matters now, there could be serious problems later. While others won't be thrilled when you first raise these, ultimately they'll be relieved they've been dealt with.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 21)
Recently you've been forced to compromise. In some situations, you were bowing to the needs of those you care about. But in others decisions were enforced and you remain unhappy about them. Now events compensate you in ways more wonderful than you imagine.

Leo (Jul 22 - Aug 21)
Most Leos have friends who can be counted on as back up. That seems to be the case now. Don't hesitate to ask for help. Actually, they've been monitoring the situation and were concerned. However, they would never offer to lend a hand unless you asked.

Virgo (Aug 22 - Sep 21)
Since earlier this month you've been eager to explore new ideas, but something has always interfered. Now that the Sun has joined your ruler Mercury in accenting ways you could broaden your horizons, you can make up for lost time. Exciting as these possibilities are, make no commitments just yet.

Libra (Sep 22 - Oct 22)
Often when you have differences with others, you'll retreat to think about the situation and the character of those involved. This time you have little time for reflection. Worrying as it might be to feel so ill prepared, it will result in forthright exchanges.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 20)
Convincing somebody you care about that it's time to face certain tricky matters hasn't been easy. But they've been resolutely ignoring them, and so you've had to put up with the resulting tensions. Challenging as analysing and resolving these may be, once they're settled, you can be fairly sure they'll be gone for good.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 - Dec 20)
Usually you're the first to adapt to changes, even those everybody struggles to deal with. Now you are having problems settling in. That may be due to situations still in transition. If you can't avoid making arrangements, keep them loose. That way you'll avoid more drama.

Capricorn (Dec 21 - Jan 19)
Individuals are more interested in pursuing their own objectives than solving the problem. Their seemingly cavalier attitude to these matters is the result of ignorance. Once they're better informed, they'll realise being flexible is essential.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
You must resolve tricky issues involving finances and other obligations. This could mean that everybody must compromise. But it's better to do that now. At least you'd have an arrangement to form a basis for future discussions, instead of chaos and confusion.

Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 19)
Ages ago it was made clear to you some sensitive individuals simply couldn't cope with stress or conflict. So you've done all you can to avoid such matters. They've invented this tale for their convenience though, and are probably more capable of dealing with tough situations than you are, as you'll see if you confront them.

Dare To Be Free

People are confusing the meaning of "punk" as just getting wasted or high or crazy. Well I hate to disappoint some of you guys. Being punk is just not all about wearing wierd clothes or crazy stuff, and looking like you haven't took a bath for ages. Nor just screaming and yelling the songs of your favorite rock bands out in the alley. It's more about being who you are and who you wanna be. It's also about not giving a damn what people think of you. Yes it is about feeling free and living life to the fullest, not caring about restrictions or the consequences that might follow your actions.

I must admit that being a punk has a negative side, but don't you feel good just by following your instincs and living your dreams? As long as you are not hurting anybody, being a punk rocks! I adore punk rock bands like Greed Day, Metallica, and Limp Bizkit because they sing as though they haven't a care in the world, they just simply sing their hearts out.

So I'm calling all the punks out there to visit this awesome Punk Chat Room and chat with people who are living life the way you do. Get to learn more about new rock bands and be updated in recent punk fashion. Though punks don't care about the latest fashion because they just act on impulse, it good to be punk and updated. Oh, did I mention that signing up will cost you almost nothing? Yeah, because it will take up only a fraction of your precious time. Few clicks and you'll be on your way to a world where punks rule supreme.

Dare to be free and don't be a copycat. Remember, nothing beats the original!

Flakes Away

Believe me I know what it's like to feel like you're carrying the world in your head. Yeah it feels like you're always wearing a crown, but not of gold, instead a full load of annoying flakes that are not just itchy but also disgusting!

So my new mission is: kicking dandruff 's ass for good.

Dandruff (a.k.a Pityriasis capitis) is caused by the skin of the scalp shedding its dead cells at a faster rate than normal. Therefore, this is a sign that your scalp is not healthy. Dietary causes include eating too much junk food, lack of vitamins and polyunsaturated oils, and zinc deficiency.

Here are some tips to finally get rid of these irritating flakes:

1. Eat plenty of zinc-rich foods such as oysters/clams/"tahong", brown rice, wheat bread, nuts & seeds, dark green vegetables, and dried fruit.

2. Avoid eating excessive junk foods.

3. Avoid harsh shampoos (try using CLEAR, I've tried it and I think it's working 'dandruff never comes back' hehehe).

4. Rinse shampoo off your hair completely.

5. According to wikipedia, anti-fungal/anti-dandruff shampoos containing ketoconazole have been shown to be more effective than zinc pyrithione (Head & Shoulders, Clear, Pantene etc.). Ketoconazole is the most effective antifungal agent concluded by multiple studies.

Sometimes, a flaky scalp signals an underlying disorder. If you've followed the tips above and the problem still persist, you need to consult your physician.

Have a clear and healthy scalp!!!

The Roof Is On Fire!

Having lived in the desert for over a year, where rain is almost considered a miracle and is so enthusiastically waited by people, I was so thrilled yesterday. Yes it rained so hard I was tempted to go out and enjoy the pouring rain. But since I don't want to look like a fool in my neighbors' eyes, I contained myself in just smelling the fresh smell of rain. I just love rainy season!

But my happiness was only short-lived. The moment I went back in the house, our roof was leaking and water bathe the floor. So much for liking the rainy season! I never noticed that our roof needs repair. Most of the time, we forsake the most simple yet very basic in our household, our roof. Imagine a house without a roof. Your home will be very vulnerable to danger, because you don't have protection from all sorts of human and environmental hazards.

This is where Sundance Roofing, Inc. comes in handy. The finest Albuquerque Roofer you can ever find. They certainly know what they are doing because they've been providing durable roofing protection since 1995. They not only care about cost, durability, and aesthetics, they also make sure that all of their materials are environment-friendly.

Visit their site now for a free estimate, and protect your home as well as Mother Earth.


I ran out of anything to do at home except sleep and eat. Now I am forcing myself to do something to keep me from drowning in the quicksand of sloth. I bought myself the whole 8 seasons o
f Charmed (my all-time favorite TV series). Though I have seen it all before, I just love to see it all over again. I love magic (maybe it's the kid in me) , and I still do believe in it.

I am now on my 3rd season, and
I hate it coz Prue will die on the final episode. She's my favorite coz she can move things with her mind and she can astroproject too. It would be so cool if all of us could receive such a gift, but of course we only just use it for the greater good. Too bad not all people will use it for good reasons. I'm sure lots of people will be tempted to use it for their personal and evil causes.

It's better
to contain magic in the perfect world of fantasy. That way, we could live normal lives and just be human.

Angels Do Chat

I've been away from the chat rooms for quite a long time now. The reason I stopped chatting was that, there are lots of people who only wanted to have dirty talks and filthy shows with you. They just wanted to spend their time in a lousy and nonsense chat. So I laid low, and eventually stopped hoping that there are still nice and sensitive people out there whom you can talk to when you're feeling down and alone.

Until I found this Free Catholic Chat site. Registration is absolutely free, and once you finished signing up, you can instantly chat with millions of members all over the world who share the same faith and views as you. You can even view and share web cams if you feel that talking is no longer enough.

So whenever you feel down, troubled, and confused, you can always go online. There are many people out there who are feeling the same emotions as you do. Who knows? The answer to what's been bugging you lately is just a click away. Angels are all around us, and most of the time they don't need wings to reach us. All they need is a PC, an internet connection, and a free Catholic Chat membership.

I Just Love Chocolate Drinks!

The Neno’s Award

I received this award from Aby, though I hardly know what's the award meant, I'm still thankful for his thoughtfulness. The art on the photo is quite amazing, and the cup of chocolate drink looks really delicious, so I'm accepting this award whole-heartedly.

Here are the rules in grabbing this award:

1. Put the award on your blog.
2. Put the blogger link who gave you the award on your blog.
3. Pass it to another bloggers.
4. Put the links of bloggers who you give the award.

To all my friendly bloggers out there, I present this award to you... Have fun!

The Floor Show

The one thing I appreciate most in a house is a clean and neat floor. So whenever I go inside, I always make sure that I will leave my shoes or sleepers outside. A tidy floor is a reflection of a well taken cared for home. Now that we are moving to a new house, I will make sure that our floor will be spotless clean. I think I should start by planning its installation carefully. And what better way to achieve a great result than researching for the best flooring contractor?

Yes I found the best. I have learned great ideas from Artisan Hardwood Floors, Inc. As a matter of fact, they are the best in Seattle flooring, at a price that is so friendly to your budget. They specialize in giving you the best value for your money. From installation and sanding, to refinishing and restoration of your floors. Just name the type of flooring you want, and they will do the magic that will leave you smiling for quite a long time.

How I wish I live in Seattle though, so I could take this great opportunity. For now, I'll just settle in taking advantage of the ideas I got from them.

The Bohol Trip

If Jamjam didn't have an asthma attack 2 days ago, we should have been enjoying the beaches of Bohol by now. We've scheduled that trip months ago and we're both very excited to see the wonders of Chocolate Hills. We wanted to take pictures with the legendary hills as a backdraft, just like the ones we see in postcards.

I also wanted to see Ate Myla's baby, and to be there in his Christening. Maybe it's just not meant to be. Maybe we are meant to be in another place. So now we are planning to visit my brother and his family in Cagayan de Oro City. I'm just waiting for Jam to fully recover and we will be on our way. I've heard there are also great beaches there, I'm sure we are going to have lots of fun.

Scenic Furniture

As early as now, I'm already looking for the right furniture for our new home. I particularly like classic or rustic furniture to grace our living room as well as the bedrooms. I found these to be exquisitely lovely...

This would be perfect for the sala (minus the fireplace of course LOL)

Oh I could sleep all day and all night in this comfortable and stylish bed.

If you want to see more of these elegant furniture, you better visit Scenic Furniture, they feature a wide range of stunning furniture collections that are worth every cent of your money. And as their name implies, each and every piece is scenic.

I really do want to have those in my new home. I already imagine my family being so comfortable in it, and enjoying every moment.

The Drainman

Our family is planning to move out of the city probably on mid-May. Just yesterday, we reserved a house and lot in a new subdivision in Panabo City. I've seen the house, it is almost complete except for windows, electric connection and plumbing works. The first two are quite easy to handle, but plumbing services need careful attention. We all know that water is very important in a household, so it must be a priority from its installation up to its maintenance. Improper water pipes and sewage installation can lead to a messy household. So to ensure the best outcome, one must employ the best plumbers available.

When I knew about Indianapolis Plumber (The Drainman, Inc.), I was never glad. But then it quickly occurred to me that I don't live in Indiana, too bad it just isn't my luck. But the people of Indianapolis, Indiana are just plain lucky because no plumbers in Indianapolis could ever surpass the services they provide. From simple water leaks to more complicated pump and sewage problems, they have just the right hand to solve it. More and more customers are getting satisfied with their services, evidenced by their appreciative testimonials on their site.

If you ever need plumbing services, don't think twice and look no further, The Drainman, Inc. is the best there is in Indianapolis. As for our house, I might just have to settle with the best plumbers in my small town. But take note, I will ensure they know what they are doing.

Carousel Ride

Kids just couldn't resist carousels. Whenever we go to the mall and they'd see other kids riding it, they wouldn't leave me in peace till they get what they want. But it's so nice to see them happy and enjoying the ride. For me, that's the most important part.

I was trying so hard to include myself in the photo, and it's hard coz my hand kept shaking while the carousel had made me a little dizzy.

All in all, we had a fabulous time together...Happy Easter everyone!!!

Gemini (May 20 - Jun 20)
For ages you've been ignoring problems that have bewildered you. Circumstances are forcing you to face up to them. And once you do, you'll realise that you know far more than you thought, enough that you're able to put them to rest, and with remarkably little effort.

*** I really hope I could all put my problems to rest and hopefully with little effort. But I'm willing to face hardships just to put them all to rest. I just want to find a way to make everyone I care for happy and safe.

Aries (Mar 20 - Apr 18)
In your enthusiasm and desire to encourage others, you've done or said too much. While your zest for life is one of your most admirable characteristics, certain individuals seem to have misread it, and are threatened. However, because they're a permanent part of your life, it's easier to simply apologise.

Taurus (Apr 19 - May 19)
At first it will be subtle. But gradually you'll realise just how much the arrival of the communication planet Mercury in Taurus has sharpened your mind and boosted your confidence, even when you're cornered into contending with issues.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 21)
Arguing with somebody who has already made up their mind is a formula for frustration. However, you can't help but feel that if you can just strike the right note with them you can find a way. You might. But don't hold your breath.

Leo (Jul 22 - Aug 21)
After weeks of confusion, differences between you and others are finally out in the open. However, there is one problem, and that's their need to discuss every issue from the past, point by point, before you can even think about the future.

Virgo (Aug 22 - Sep 21)
Don't allow the negativity of those whose support you're seeking to cause you concern. They don't fully comprehend your intentions. Review your plans and ideas, and keep on doing so until they finally understand everything.

Libra (Sep 22 - Oct 22)
You're dreading confrontations about feelings you'd rather not discuss. The need to be so blunt indicates that your efforts to deal with things in a more delicate manner failed. Judging by the attitude of others, a subtle approach wouldn't have registered.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 20)
It usually wouldn't be your style to allow others to make plans that will have a lasting influence on your life. But the fact is, they've far more control over the situations in question than you do, and could be hugely helpful. Let them.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 - Dec 20)
The only thing more boring than having to talk over tedious practical matters is talking them over with somebody who drags those discussions out far longer than necessary. However, what you learn as a direct result of these exchanges will prove informative.

Capricorn (Dec 21 - Jan 19)
Once, time spent with family or loved ones in certain activities was a joy. Then one individual developed a passion for the pursuit in question. Since then you've sidestepped these gatherings, because you know they'd highjack the occasion. Tell them, gently but firmly.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
In even the most modest of situations you'll bend over backwards to ensure others are made to feel important. However, next week emphasises the importance of decisions being in your best interests, and yours alone.

Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 19)
It may take ages to unravel the truth from the falsehoods. But at least you finally realise that one particular individual has been rearranging the facts for their own convenience, and for a very long time.

Be Aware

Malicious people are all over the world. They are vicious and heartless, attacking people of all ages. And the worst part is that you can never tell who they are, they could be anyone in your neighborhood. So you better be ready and protect your family.

Do you know that you can Track Sex Offenders in the comfort of your own home? Yes you definitely can. Just click on the link above and you will be transported to a page where sex offenders are unmasked and identified. Imagine what you can do to help those innocents who will be saved by your simple act. Helping make the world a better place to live in has never been this easy.

It's a good thing there are people who cared enough to create helpful and informative sites like this one.

The Lenten Season

A year ago, I celebrated the Lent alone in Dubai, I remember feeling so alone and lonely. Now I am home with my family, and I feel so blessed. There really is no place like home. I admit that I'm not a very religious person, but I do firmly believe in God, I'm not just that showy ;-D

We just stayed at home, trying to abstain from worldly pleasures and asking forgiveness for our sins. The silence will really help you internalize the things that you've done for the past year (well, not only for the past year but even the years before). It was quite refreshing.

JaM @ 8

Birthdays are important events in our lives. It's the time to celebrate the beautiful life God has given us. So we must greet our birthdays with merriment together with the people closest to our hearts.

That's why I specifically requested my annual leave to fall on the month of April. For me to be with my baby Jam on her most special day. Now as she turns 8, she have grown and matured a lot. Smarter, prettier, and more responsible. I want to be with her each and every step of the way, but I have to think about her future. So I have to sacrifice the chance to be with her everyday to give her a brighter tomorrow.


Happy happy happy birthday Jam, may the Lord God grant your heart's desires, and wish you more more more birthdays to come. Jam, you know how much I love you and I will do everything to make you happy. If you ever change, change for the better. Always have a kind and good heart, and you will do just fine in this life. I love you Jam, forever and beyond!

Jam with mama, arena, godparents, and friends

Spend Wisely

Since I've got more free time now, I have been looking through my current financial status, my assets and liabilities as well as my monthly income and expenses. Sad to say that what I'm earning is just about right to cover my costs, with no extra for savings.

In the midst of the recent global economic crisis, we really need to get smart and get a good grip on our finances. And I found a great site which proves to be very helpful in almost everything relating to finance.

(the blogger) will guide you through the necessary steps of making the big change to financial freedom.

His website is very user-friendly, I promise you won't get lost! And it has useful tools such as online calculators and short step-by-step videos which are very helpful in planning and predicting your expenditures. And if those aren't enough for you, you can always talk to him through live online chats and telephone seminars so you can ask and discuss about your financial doubts.

Visit now, and be on your way to a stress-free financing!

Jammin' With Jam

When we had our night out at Calle 5 along Torres St., Jam bravely stood up and approached Michelle (the singer). She asked her if she could sing in the stage, in front of the customers. I was never so nervous, it's as if I was the one to perform.

To my utmost relief, Jam performed quite well. She sang
Always Be My Baby (David Cook's revival) and Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis. She's so courageous and amazing and I love her to pieces! I can't help but feel so proud. Hmmm, I should start sending her to voice lesson classes.

Lap Band

Gaining weight is what I've been going through recently, especially now that I'm on vacation. Eating and sleeping are my main activities of daily living. And I'm always too tired or too lazy to get up and do some work out. This has to stop.

As I assessed my eating habit, I admit that I do overeat. I tend to eat too fast, not giving my stomach time to adjust to the huge amount of food I eat. Seriously, if I will not stop eating like this, I'll be on my way of becoming obese in no time. And I won't have a choice but to undergo a lap band procedure. Now what is it?

The Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band procedure is most commonly known as Lap-Band surgery. The surgeon will insert a silastic band into your stomach to make a smaller stomach pouch, so you feel full after eating even a small amount of food. This is just a minor procedure though, they will just make tiny incisions in your tummy and use laparoscopic techniques to insert the band. And whala, you're on your way to a slimmer and sexier body.

Many women have tried and was extremely satisfied with the results, if you want to know their stories, read their lap band testimonials and be convinced. Also take a look at their lap band before and after video featuring photos of patients who underwent the surgery, truly amazing! Call 1-800-GET-SLIM now and Lose the weight, Live your life!
