Buckle Up for Safety

I just wanna share this important articles that i've read and i'm sure even though we are all aware of it already yet keep in mind we have to have extra pre cautionary measure you know.

▪ In the United States, motor-vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among youths from 5 to 24 years of age.

▪ In Japan, road accidents are responsible for more than twice as many deaths as breast cancer and kill four times as many people as prostate cancer.

▪ In Europe, car accidents account for four times as many deaths as homicides do.

THESE alarming statistics highlight one of the inherent dangers of traveling by automobile—speed can kill. And speed with alcohol murders. Thankfully, the risk of accident and injury can be reduced. How is that possible?

Cultivating safe driving habits is a good place to start. Some safety experts claim that 9 out of 10 accidents could be prevented or avoided. Exceeding the posted speed limit, weaving in and out of traffic, tailgating, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and driving a poorly maintained car are just a few examples of unsafe driving habits. Respect for life and love for our fellowman should move us to adopt a cautious and responsible attitude toward operating a motor vehicle.

Seat belts are another simple, but often overlooked, safety measure. According to Tim Hurd, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Transportation, “the safety belt is the most effective way to save your life in a crash. It doubles the likelihood of survival.” For the youngest passengers, the survival rate is nearly tripled if they use child safety seats.

In spite of this, surveys indicate that nearly a third of the occupants of passenger vehicles in the United States do not use seat belts. As a parent, do you see to it that your children are safely strapped into their seats before venturing out? The time that it takes to buckle up is well worth it.


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends: “Children in rear-facing child seats should not be placed in the front seat of cars equipped with passenger-side air bags. The impact of a deploying air bag striking a rear-facing child seat could result in injury to the child.”

Was looking for some bargains particularly on allergy bedding because talking about allergies, my sister has it all. I mean she has her asthma, allergic rhinitis and stuff like that. Those dust mites, pollens and allergens makes her go crazy, lol! So anyway since I found great bargains at one of my fave online store, might as well grab some bedding and hopefully send it home soon. It'll be really healthy for her and to those people with allergies too.

Been Anxious

But now is over because finally after 48years of waiting my balikbayan box just arrived last night at our house in zambo. We're all anticipating the box to get there, my sister actually called to their main office few time but no one answer but i tried to check the other day luckily someone answered my calls and she told me guaranteed before the 25th of December u know CT. So we waited and waited for couple of days and at last sissy off messages me that they can't wait to tear open the box last night, lol! Oh well, am happy now!

Winter by the sea

During winter months most of us just want to stay indoors and to laze around in bed. I'm guilty actually, that's why I hate cold weather because it makes me feel tired and sleepy. In order to combat the boredom and laziness, might as well think of ways, I mean activities that can be done even during winter. Any idea to share? Speaking of such, did you know that many people likes going to the beach during this season? They like to escape the cold and visit Myrtle beach accommodations. We all know that Myrtle beach is the top destination for American families but during winter? Well yes! For instance, the Horizon Resort, one of the most lovely Myrtle beach accommodation has this winter monthly rates that allows every guest celebrate the holidays in more special way. The nice thing is that they have the lowest deals and promos available for all!

Wouldn't it be great to end the year having a vacation at Myrtle beach hotel? Oh, if somebody invites me to spend winter at the beach, I won't think twice cause I missed the ocean so bad. Even if it's soooo freezing cold though, lol!

Girls love PURSE!


Am just one of those ladies who loves purses and shoes, lol! The evidence is this purple one i just got the other day at my favorite online store. Was so happy and satisfied with my purchased because it is really true to the reviews I've read that the purse is big and beautiful haha which is what i kinda looking for a purse right now. I have two babies and i need huge bag for my personal stuff and theirs so for comfy for me to have one at the same time i have to have a huge yet stylish bag for diapers in short this is it! lol.

holiday hop!

Beach hopping doesn't only happen during summer. On the contrary, many would even prefer going to the beach when everyone else doesn't. And when we talk about the number 1 family beach in America, which is Myrtle beach resorts, who can possibly say no?! Since the holidays is fast approaching, people are thinking of ways on how they can spend it. Avista Resort, the newest Oceanfront Myrtle beach resort has a very nice treat to visitors who want to spend their special time at Myrtle. They have this "sweet treat" that would only last until Dec. 31st. Specially for couples, they will enjoy staying in this beautiful Myrtle beach resort where they are welcomed with chocolates, champagne, and roses upon arriving.

There are still a lot of other vacation packages to choose from but i bet the Oceanfront Myrtle beach resorts top the list. For someone like me who misses the beach so much, it's the best! I wonder when can we possibly visit Myrtle? Now I'm starting to wish and daydream again. Hehe!

Kurdapya wants to share a nice and inspiring email she received the other night. It's all about being happy, the simple way. Hope you like it guys... & tell me what you think about the...
...Alphabet of Happiness...

Accept others for who they are and for the choices they've made
even if you have difficulty understanding their beliefs, motives,
or actions.

B--Break Away
Break away from everything that stands in the way of what you
hope to accomplish with your life.

Create a family of friends whom you can share your hopes, dreams,
sorrows, and happiness with.

Decide that you'll be successful and happy come what may, and
good things will find you. The roadblocks are only minor obstacles
along the way.

Explore and experiment. The world has much to offer, and you
have much to give. And every time you try something new, you'll
learn more about yourself.

Forgive and forget. Grudges only weigh you down and inspire
unhappiness and grief. Soar above it, and remember that everyone
makes mistakes.

Leave the childhood monsters behind. They can no longer hurt
you or stand in your way.

Hope for the best and never forget that anything is possible
as long as you remain dedicated to the task.

Ignore the negative voice inside your head. Focus instead on
your goals and remember your accomplishments. Your past success
is only a small inkling of what the future holds.

Journey to new worlds, new possibilities, by remaining open-minded.
Try to learn something new every day, and you'll grow.

Know that no matter how bad things seem, they'll always get
better. The warmth of spring always follows the harshest winter.

Let love fill your heart instead of hate. When hate is in your
heart, there's room for nothing else, but when love is in your
heart, there's room for endless happiness.

Manage your time and your expenses wisely, and you'll suffer
less stress and worry. Then you'll be able to focus on the important
things in life.

Never ignore the poor, infirm, helpless, weak, or suffering.
Offer your assistance when possible, and always your kindness
and understanding.

Open your eyes and take in all the beauty around you. Even during
the worst of times, there's still much to be thankful for.

Never forget to have fun along the way. Success means nothing
without happiness.

Ask many questions, because you're here to learn.

Refuse to let worry and stress rule your life, and remember
that things always have a way of working out in the end.

Share your talent, skills, knowledge, and time with others.
Everything that you invest in others will return to you many
times over.

Even when your dreams seem impossible to reach, try anyway.
You'll be amazed by what you can accomplish.

Use your gifts to your best ability. Talent that's wasted has
no value. Talent that's used will bring unexpected rewards.

Value the friends and family members who've supported and encouraged
you, and be there for them as well.

Work hard every day to be the best person you can be, but never
feel guilty if you fall short of your goals. Every sunrise offers
a second chance.

Look deep inside the hearts of those around you and you'll see
the goodness and beauty within.

Yield to commitment. If you stay on track and remain dedicated,
you'll find success at the end of the road.

Zoom to a happy place when bad memories or sorrow rears its
ugly head. Let nothing interfere with your goals. Instead, focus
on your abilities, your dreams, and a brighter tomorrow

Skiing, wanna try?

It's one of the many things I've never tried yet. Back home before, when winter was impossible, thought will never see someone ski with my own eyes. But now, during this season, even kids at the neighborhood ski with their own improvised snowboards. They seem so happy every time they go up, down, round and round the slopes. I also heard that many people travel miles away to experience such an adrenalin rush that comes from skiing. Why not? For instance the 2009 Ski in Argentina is fast approaching and many enthusiast across the world wanna participate.

That makes Argentina ski resorts pretty much busy these days. The preparations, activities and also the bookings for the main ski locations is now on going. Cerro Chapelco and Cerro Catedral ski resort for instance. Probably the best place to experience that high and excitement and many can attest to that. So if you're one of the many who wants to be there, better do your booking now or be square. Hmmm.. talking about this stuff makes me wonder if I'll ever learn how to ski. Gosh! I think am too old for that, lol!

traveling, here & there!

One of the best things in life is traveling. To be able to visit other places, meet new people and discover different cultures brings joy and excitement. Although not everyone can afford a grand vacation but I'd like to think that even simple joyrides can be the next best thing. That's what I always ask the husband, to drive us through the country side atleast, lol! But in case you'll have the chance to experience a vacation abroad, where do you wanna go?

Through my browsing, I found a really cool site where you can find the best deals for your travel destinations. Checking on the best places around the globe, from east to west, can be so easy. Plus, it's also the right place to search for the cheapest, most affordable accommodations you can ever imagine! Looking for cheap Singapore hotels? Or how about cheap hotels in Vancouver? Hollywood hotels perhaps or you wanna explore Europe, they have it all.

I'm talking about Cheaper than Hotels website, your one stop shop for all your travel destination needs. Just visit them and see how cool they are, winks!

checking out some baby stuff

Back home in the Philippines I have a couple of friends who got married just recently. I'm glad they always keep me updated with their lives, the joy they feel as newly weds and sharing pictures as well. I wish them all the best, oh, and of course I can't wait for them to get pregnant, haha! Nothing beats being a mommy, I always tell them that.

By the way, speaking of such, I almost forget to check on new lightweight strollers for the baby girl. Alexa is growing up so fast, she's so big now. All the while I thought the old one we have here is good enough but apparently we need another. I guess full featured strollers would be better since it's more sturdy, convenient and versatile. And it has a platform where the big brother can ride, cool!

Let me check ShopWiki for these. Am sure they have the widest selection of products, jogging strollers, baby walkers, and everything! What's nice about ShopWiki is that it crawls through every online store like a search engine so pretty much we can find the best deals possible. See ya guys around, winks! Got to go...

Most of my friends lives there especially my cousin Jerla. For quite some time now, both of us have been planning to see each other either ways. But you know planning a vacation is not that easy, well I hope it is.

In God's time I will meet CA. If that happens I'd ask my cousin to take us to Santa Monica Beach Hotel. I would love to feel the sand underneath my feet again and dive into the waters. Or even just to have a cup of coffee and roam around the Main Street, Beach Hotel Santa Monica sure has everything we want to experience. It'll be a nice place to have a reunion with friends and family definitely. Now am daydreaming. Never mind, for now it's the next best thing lol!

Anyway if you want to visit CA too, try checking out Bayside Hotel Santa Monica. You can reach them online for details of their services and offers available. Go ahead, daydream like me, winks!

I like!

Collecting stuff is one of the things I enjoy doing. The items I collect usually depends on my mood. Like I used to love shoes before, then purses, now I'm obsess with anything red! Red mugs, centerpieces, candles, pillows, bling-blings, everything lol! But recently my sister shared me about a website wherein you can send postcards to other people around the world, and vice-versa. Sure it'll be very nice to receive cards from strangers, to see the beauty of their country through postcards. Now it brings back memories. When I was still a teenager I used to collect postcards too, I wonder where they are now! All gone I think, sigh. Maybe should start collecting postcard templates once again since I found a site where I can purchase customized cards in cheap prices. Lets see one of these days, winks!

Joy ride

My Sunday was really wonderful. We went to the meeting in the morning and had lunch at Mexican restaurant then i asked husband that we'll take the kiddos for a ride for a little bit so they can have their nap easily because my son naps right away when we are in the van. Then and so on i planned our afternoon's where about, that later in afternoon will drop the kids to their Nanas so husband and I can go to grocery shopping, well he just said "I WAS GOING TO" and as he driving our van i have no idea where he gonna take us! then I asked how longer he'll turn back home because we have no plans to go out somewhere, well he just drive, drive and drive, lol until i realized we are close to Nashville and he stopped at Publix to shop at my favorite place to go food shopping, haha! I love when he surprises me like that even though am not use of going to the store with all the high heels and dress wearing! lol. Hmmmm... i wonder where again he gonna drive next weekend! Look forward or surprise surprise.

Saturday, November 21, 2009

PhotoHunt 188: Bird(s)

Glad i have an entry for this week's photohunt, lol! Obviosly you can see them behind me. This was taken at Tennessee Aquarium. Winks!

"You reep what you sow"

True in most cast especially if we talk about the environment. Man has done enough to damage our mother earth, and before it's too late, everyone must do our share to save it. This is the advocacy of Natural Environmental System, a company dedicated to providing natural microbial products and ecologically friendly solutions for industrial, agricultural, and residential needs. Their products such as pond pumps, algae control, green houses, fertilizers, filters, and so much more are made to ensure the safety of the environment. So if you like to go green, this is the right place for you to visit. Cause when we sow good deeds, we'll be rewarded for it in the end.

Looking at the Sky on Friday


The husband was busy driving in a busy rod going to up hill Gutenberg while Kurdapya was also busy taking pictures here and there! I took this in Pigeon Forge, TN one of their amusement rides out there! Look at the sky, the colour is so flawless!

It's all in the packaging

No doubt even the simplest stuff becomes special when presented nicely isn't it? So I guess that's the reason why most merchants spend much on the packaging alone of their products. But have you ever wondered if you can also have those lovely packages and cardboard display? Those cute boxes and gift cards we see at the mall are now readily available to anyone. There's an online shop that caters to everything and anything when it comes to packaging. If you're interested, just click on the links and it'll lead you there!

Just happy for her!

Am talking about a fellow blogger and i've been her follower ever since my cousin jerla share me her blog. I may say she is funny but i am impressed at her you know why? because she's so real, she has this self confidence that other people i guess doesn't have and she has a courageous spirit. It's been quite awhile now that i haven't heard her updates before i used to visit her blog just reading her love story and hows her life treating but i guess she's busy never heard since last April. Anyway last night i happened to think about her so i checked her bloggy and i found out she's now in Norway with her husband the biggest moment that they're been waiting for. Well, just happy for her finally she's with her man now! Although she don't know me, lol!

Mellow Yellow Monday #43

Looking your best!

A certain quote says, "there are no ugly people, just lazy ones." Would you agree? I think that looking good outside is something we owe to ourselves. No matter how busy we are, or how stressful our problems are, we should pause and pamper ourselves once in a while. It's a way of feeling good also, and once a person feels good about himself or herself, life will be much lovely. I remember watching a television program before, a certain woman used to feel so insecure and her life was miserable. She thinks she's ugly and her perspective in life became ugly too. Then she woke up one day and decided to change for the better. She sought professional help and even undergo a breast augmentation surgery. To her, it's one way of becoming her best. Why not? I mean many people considers plastic surgery to look their best, and if that's what makes them happy and satisfied, so be it.

But for those who are thinking of plastic surgery, make sure to find the best and qualified surgeons. Read more information and ask the experts, if you really are serious of this stuff.

Mommy Moments - Sporty Day

At the clinic

Hello guys, time for some updates here. Well, we visited the pediatrician yesterday for the kiddos regular check up. All went well, both are growing up healthy and strong. On the other hand, I also check on some info about social security disability or SSDI. I over-heard people talked about it at the clinic, they said that an increasing number of individuals are applying for it these days. Well I guess, it only goes to show that life is indeed getting harder these days.

She craving Mexican!

I can fight my cravings right now I've called husband from his work to please get a Mexican food for me and son's lunch today. I know this is unreasonable for him to drive here and bring the pack of lunch where in am at home and can just fix whatever here! sigh but i don't understand me today kurdapya is just so demanding!!!! KSP ba! lol.

Shopping guides for parents

Shopping can be difficult. Difficult? Well yes. When we are surrounded by tons of products, all promising they're the best. Plus the budget we have to consider, the practicality, and durability, shopping can spell stress. That's why a wise shopper needs to weigh things carefully, buying only the right products.

Especially us, mommies and daddies, how can we find out which is which? I remember when we need to buy a stroller for my daughter, I want it to be cute yet sturdy strollers. I also want it easier to carry along and something nice to maneuver. So I read some stroller review guides. It was really helpful because each stroller has a particular feature. Depending on your babies need, some might work out fine while others may provide discomfort. And also the stroller safety, we should take it seriously because it's something that carries our child. On my part, glad to have found Their site provided me the widest selection of kids products and also the much needed information about it. Well, we were able to save more and yes, I did enjoy my shopping with them. LOL!

Thanks for dropping by guys, appreciate it much!

car care and more!

Cars- one of the things we always need in our lives. It has been a necessity more than a status symbol nowadays and that's for many good reasons. Cars serve as a dependable partner when we travel crossroads, visit family and friends, or just plain joyride. That's why every car owner needs to know how to take good care of it, so it'll be in good shape for a long time.

I don't know much about car maintenance so let's ask RepairPal, the online automobile expert.

Have you ever wondered what's the funniest jokes in the world? Some people laugh at particular jokes while others do not and some may go crazy over a gag while others may find it cheesy.

A few minutes later, the trucker notices that the wife hasn't taken a bite. "I really wouldn't mind buying your wife her own meal," he insists.
"She'll eat," the husband assures him. "We share everything."
Unconvinced, the trucker implores the wife, "Why aren't you eating?"
The wife snaps, "Because I'm waiting for the teeth!"

Tired of waiting in the back of the line to get on Noah's Ark, a flea jumps from one animal to another as she moves closer to the front.

A man says to a friend, "My wife is on a three-week diet."
"Oh, yeah? How much has she lost so far?"
"Two weeks."

A concerned police officer approaches a boy crying in front of a newsstand.

A man calls a radio deejay and says, "I've found a wallet with a hundred thousand koruny inside. There's also a card that says ‘Jan Ziegler, Seifert Street 3, Prague.' "
"So?" says the deejay. "What do you want us to do?"
"Would you be so kind as to play the man a song?"

Hannu wants everything to be perfect for his anniversary trip to the hotel where he and his wife honeymooned 30 years earlier. So he gets there a day early to make all the arrangements. That night, he e-mails her but misspells the address and it goes to a recent widow.
The next day, the widow's son finds his mother passed out in front of her computer. On the screen is this e-mail: "My darling wife, I've just gotten here and everything's set for your arrival tomorrow. I hope your trip down here will be as pleasant as mine.
"P.S. It's really hot!"

President Sarkozy visits a steel factory. To the boss's surprise, the president greets an employee, Morton, with a warm hug. The same thing happens when Barack Obama visits, and again during Vladimir Putin's tour.
Unimpressed, the boss says to Morton, "I bet you don't know the pope."
Morton shrugs. "We play golf together."
The gauntlet has been tossed, and the boss pays their way to the Vatican. During the Benediction, Morton slips away. Sure enough, he reappears—side by side with the pope.
Two Chinese tourists tap the boss on the shoulder and ask, "Who's the guy in white standing with Morton?"

Wandering around a fairgrounds, a man enters a fortune-teller's tent for a laugh. "I see you're the father of two," says the seer, gazing into her crystal ball.
"Ha! That's what you think," says the man scornfully. "I'm the father of three."
"Ha!" says the fortune-teller. "That's what you think."

Stay tuned for the next 20.. wink wink!

Have you ever heard of Alli? If you're into weight management, then probably yes. It's an over the counter form of the famous weight loss pill Xenical. Anyway, I read about alli reviews, and it says that with the help of this pill, a person can lose up to 50% more weight. What do you think? Maybe some of you out there already tried this product. Mind to share your feedback?


Am so happy to know that my balikbayan box is on its way to my family in Philippines. I just check it online the tracking of the package and it says that the estimated arrival will be on December 4! So glad that the carrier has the tracking thing unlike the first one i sent we are all clueless about the schedule thing but this time am so far so good and nothing to worry about my package. Oh Yes! finally after 48years of stocking the box my family will going to see soon what i send them and i hope they all happy, lol!

I love it!

Blame it on my surfing escapades! Alright, it's about the gorgeous netbooks I found on line that took my breath away. I'm sure when you see them, you'll love them too! The merchants are selling it in super low prices and there are so many deals, maybe because the holidays are fast approaching. I want the red netbook in particular. How about you? Dreaming of it too??

My Fave Drinks


Milk shake is so far my favorite drinks right now made by the husband every time i crave for milkshake i ask him to make some especially dinner time that's our side drinks every now and then. We just freshly made it instead of buying out because it's more healthier than anybody else you know with fresh fruits of any kind but blueberry and strawberry is my fave!


I love taking pictures here and there. I don't care if it's the best shot or not as long as I captured it. But every time I see those beautiful pictures in Flickr, I can't help not to feel frustrated, lol! So I'm drooling over new digital cameras right now. My goodness, I found one at my source and it took my piece of mind away! My oh my!

Almost Friday Again

Dang i can not believe it its Friday again tomorrow days run by so fast! But the good thing is tomorrow we are having a family day out am talking about the grandparents will taking their grand kids to shopping and eat out at red lobster. They do this every now and then. Papa and Nana are so nice to all of us which is including me they never miss to pamper me as well. Am so grateful to have such wonderful PIL like them. We does this family day during Friday of the week.

Dept Consolidation- a way to be free!

Let's face it, getting into a debt can happen in a snap but getting out of it is a completely different story. Especially with the existence of credit cards and tempting offers, we often find ourselves buying things we don't actually need. So even if debt may be a way of life, something viewed as normal, still, too much of it will definitely give one headaches and heartbreaks.

Today though, there are many ways that can help a person get out of debt. Dept consolidation is an example. Debt consolidation loans is a method of gathering several loans, credits, and other liabilities and combining them into one. In this way, a debtor will just have to deal with a single loan plan to pay for everything. The idea is great I think, because you know, it's really hard to deal with every single one of them, I mean, agents, companies, and creditors. So anyway, if you believe you'll probably need such service soon, then start looking for a credible debt consolidation company. Through their help, you can lower your bills, interest, and of course organize your loans. Freedom from debt, yeah, it is possible!

Longest bridges in the world

I was doing my surfing online and i came a cross to the list of longest bridges in the world and it is indeed longest. Thailand is the number one top longest bridge ever build but am intrigues with one of the bridge listed the Donghai Bridge in China it is massive and look like a never ending thing created by man. Accordingly it was the longest cross-sea bridge in the world until they built up another most longest one and still in China. Oh well whoever the architech is sure he did a tremendous awesome work of art!

What about a cheap European trip?

Now what do I have for today? I'm thinking of several thoughts to share actually but guess what? I couldn't put it into writing, lol! Seriously speaking, I think am on for another browsing escapade again. This is what I usually do when I run out ideas. I visit other blogs and websites to find something interesting and new. And since I constantly update you guys about travel destinations and different places, I hope you'll like what I'm about to share below.

I looked for some cheap holiday deals in Europe most especially and glad to found many. Did it through, a travel and tours company helping travelers around the world experience their vacation of a lifetime. Yes I know, a cheap European vacation sounds impossible but not with them. They specialize in bargain trips, providing their clients a lot of cheap vacation packages to choose from. Cheap hotels in Greece and hotels in Alcudia for instance. The secret to saving more in these trips is knowing when to book. Make sure it's around April, May or October because it's off season. They still have more so might as well visit their site. Yes, you've got to check them out!

India Has 25 Percent of World’s Blind

I came across an article that accordingly India has the dubious distinction of having 12 million blind people, who constitute 25 per cent of the world’s total blind population,” says India’s Deccan Herald. A report by Youth Vision India, 2002, based on information gathered from colleges and schools in more than 40 cities throughout India, also pointed out that “more than 50 per cent of youth needing vision corrections were not even aware of the fact.” According to the findings, refractive errors and cataracts accounted for the majority of eye disorders in the country, and these were correctable. “Lack of awareness” and an “inadequate number of eyecare practitioners” are mentioned by the newspaper article as the major causes of India’s problem. It adds: “India has only 5000 optometrists, as against 40,000 recommended by the WHO.”

Let's go fishing!

Have you ever gone fishing? My first time was a couple of years ago when we went to the nearby lake here in our place. Along with the in-laws and friends, we caught several huge catfish, grouper, and trout. It was fun! My favorite was the trout fishing in particular, it was a little different experience compared to the ones we've tried before. I remember asking the husband what makes trout bite into bait and he'll just tell me, "watch and learn!" Oh well! Anyway, we always look forward to another fishing time with the loved ones, it's a great bonding moment really! But you know what, even if I enjoy watching them fish, I really don't know how they do it, lol!

On a second note, did you know that there are many different fishing holidays abroad? I'm pretty sure you know about the the Mediterranean fishing holidays on the famous Finding Nemo boat. And also the Top Carp and Barbel fishing in Spain, just among the many fun-filled fishing activities many people around the world loves to enjoy. Who wouldn't want to witness one of it soon right? Bottom line is, whether you view fishing as a hobby, or you're a certified enthusiast, it's something so good to do and experience.

Lets talk Business!

If you happened to purchase your own business cards online so future clients can reach you fast and easy? Don't miss into consideration because they have vast variety of products to offer including the thousands of designs that they have available for business cards and as low as 3.95 for 100 cards! For me am interested to getting our address labels because we're running out soon. Another thing i like 123print is their rates is very reasonable and has huge stylish designs too! Why not give it a try and you can also! Check it out!

The next time we go to the grocery, I really should control my self and make my eyes pass on sweets. Speaking of such, what do you think is the best weight loss pill? I've been reading lots about them lately, makes me wanna try one soon. Man, it's so hard to loss weight isn't it?

PhotoHunt 185: Bags


Bunch of paper bags doesn't it? Oh well these we're from all of my friends and family here States when they throw me the baby shower 8months ago for my lil girl she's now a bouncing 7months old lady bug. Anyway, thank you PhotoHunt for this week's theme "BAGS".

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Oh yeah..

I wasn't feeling pretty well lately. Got my mood swings and lazy days, well blame it to my period I guess. Anyway, sure I'll be over this soon and I think I know how. We just need to have a good meal at my favorite restaurant and a cute new blouse, lol! Those are my simpe joys and lucky for me to have a husband who supports me all the way. But today am a lot happier because when I check out ebates, I found a bunch of yoox coupons. I love coupons, I collect them in fact. Right now they have lots of discount cards for dresses, sweaters, blouses, and suits. I'll grab one of these coupon codes tomorrow.

I should be sleeping now, good night ya'all! see you guys!

The Rock of Gibraltar

Rising steep from the warm, blue Mediterranean waters to a height of 1,396 feet, the Rock of Gibraltar certainly looks solid. On a clear day, from miles around Southern Spain and from Morocco, across the Mediterranean, one can easily see the sharp pinnacle of Gibraltar. Gibraltar's history goes back to those misty periods when ancient mariners, believing the earth was flat, thought that to go through the Straight of Gibraltar would lead them to the edge of the world and abyss of destruction. It was also viewed as one of the Pillars of Hercules, the other being Jebel Musa at Ceuta, on the African coast across the straight. Myth said that the Greek hero Hercules had split the mountains apart.

The city of Gibraltar owes its existence to the Arabs who came from North Africa in the eighth century and later founded the city in 1160. The name Gibraltar comes from the Arabic name Djabal-Tarik, or Mountain of Tarik. Tariq ibn Ziyad was as Arab leader who defeated the last Gothic king in 711 C.E. The Spanish conquered Gibraltar in 1462, only to lose it to the British in 1704. To this day, it remains as one of the last outpost of the former British Empire.

On losing weight

The other day I told the husband to download something in the internet for me. He was kinda surprised at first but since he knows am serious, well he has no choice, lol! I told him to find me some belly dancing videos..hahaha! It's my way of shedding off some pounds and as what I learned, belly dancing is good for women who recently gave birth. If this doesn't work, well maybe I need to grab one of those weight loss productsinstead. I'm sure one of them will work for me!

The World’s Most Untranslatable Word

The world’s most difficult word to translate has been identified as ‘ilunga’ from the Tshiluba language," spoken in the Democratic Republic of Congo, says BBC News. The word won a poll conducted among a thousand linguists. Ilunga means "a person who is ready to forgive any abuse for the first time, to tolerate it a second time, but never a third time." Another high scorer was naa, a Japanese word used only "in the Kansai area of Japan to emphasise statements or agree with someone." According to Jurga Zilinskiene, managing director of the translation and interpreting agency that commissioned the poll, "people sometimes forget that an interpreter . . . must translate not just from one language to another but from one culture to another, [and] sometimes, the equivalent idea just does not exist in both cultures."

Thinking of Florida

Ever since I landed here in the States, I've wished to visit Florida and experience one of those orlando vacations. Some of my husband's relatives lived there and I really wanna meet them all. Plus of course I want to go to Disney! It's a childhood dream and now that I'm a mommy myself, I want the kids to enjoy the most magical place on earth and see all those wonderful characters. That's should happen someday soon, Kurdapya have to meet Florida, lol!



These is just an example of what i like and wear i don't take pictures of my golds and blingbling for security reason... lisud na mahibal-an daghan gold si ako! LOL kidding aside!
I honestly don't wear accessories anymore because of my babies. When my boy was months old, oh boy! he grabbed and pulled especially necklaces and it hurts i felt bad when he did that to my newly bought necklace just got it from the mail and tried to put on, the reason why i said "thats it i would'nt wear them no more so since then my jewelries and bling bling just set aside inside my jewelries box. Anyway, to make my long story short Kurdapya is back to wearing them and this time am fond of earings, bangles and with matching huge rings. these are the kind of accessories i trying to collect you know big and bold.

What a day!

Today has been pretty productive for me. Was able to do all my chores, grab several moolah, took a nap afterwards, and yes, visited my on line farms. It feels great when you can do a lot of multi-tasking and relax eventually. Anyway, before signing off let me first check about Buick supercharger. Saw some when we went to the hardware last week, but I guess the ones available on line are better. Hmmm, let me compare.

Monday, October 26, 2009

Did you got it?

Hey mommies! We always love to shop especially for our babies and little ones right? When we are at the mall, our eyes drool over those cute and fun stuff for the kids but sometimes our budget doesn't permit us to get it. Well, got a little helpful tip and believe me, this is what I usually do, lol! Hunt for those babycatalog coupons on line, there's a bunch of great deals and discounts available and it'll surely help you get the items you want in much lower price. You just have to be a little patient in waiting and grabbing those promo codes. If you don't get one in your first try, then try again tomorrow. I hope you'll get to try it soon for lots of stuff are up for grabs. Winks!

We missed it this year!

I can't imagine i missed the BBQ cookoff this year to think husband and I promised to be there again this year but of so busy this few days we forgot to check that it was supposed this weekend somewhere in our place. Better luck next time i guess by the way this picture was last year of october 25 at Jack Daniels Destilery in Lynchburg, TN.

Last Minute Travel Plan

When it comes to traveling, I still prefer the unexpected ones. You know, just when you think you're stuck in a rot, that's when good news comes and you're off for a break. I mean, when the days are so mellow and everything seem to be just a routine, a last minute travel plan will spell excitement and total fun isn't it? But of course unexpected trips can also give us some headache, more worries, and a little less smooth road to take. So what can a person do to still have a fun-filled last minute getaway?

Well, it's so easy and just a few clicks away. For instance when a last minute flights to Australia comes in your way, a good way to make it hassle free is to visit A website dedicated to help travelers find last minute accommodations, affordable deals, and unforgettable travel experience in "The Land Down Under." Find everything you need like international flights from Qantas and Singapore Airlines. Hotels, attractions, and even car hire, they have it all plus so much more. Feel free to visit them in case you need those last minute help alright?

Wishing everybody a fab weekend ahead! See ya!

Visiting the Middle East

I was hopping through different websites in search for something to post here. You know, places that Kurdapya wants to go, at least through on line though, lol! Seriously speaking there's one place that seem to be so interesting for tourist around the world to visit. Not just tourist but also for individuals who wants to seek greener pasture as well. I'm talking about Dubai, the second largest among the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates located along the shore of the Arabian Golf.

Dubai is a haven in the dessert and offers the truest meaning of beauty and indulgence. Its many tourist attractions like the seven star Burl Al Arab Hotel where the rooms are made of gold and the famous Jumeirah Palm Island will surely left anyone breathless. But yes, those are quite expensive getaways and if you're budget conscious for sure you want the cheaper one right? Well there are also cheap hotels in Dubai don't worry, in fact there are bunch of options to choose from. And if you love to shop, you better visit the colorful city of Sharjah, the shopping capital. Just check out the many cheap hotels and hotels in Sharjah and find a place to stay. Now guys, what do you think of visiting to the Middle East soon? Winks!

Can't get enough of Myrtle Beach!

Much has been said about the fascinating beauty of Myrtle Beach Resorts in South Carolina. From magazines, videos, and word of mouth, people learn so much about the place that it makes them wanna visit there even more. Well I'm one of those fellows, wishing that someday I can hop by at Myrtle Beach and explore the place. A friend of mine actually went there last summer with her family and according to her, the place is perfect. With crystal clear waters and powder like sand, why not?

So maybe visiting Myrtle is one of your plans soon. But with the unlimited choices the Grand Strand has to offer, how can you choose the right Myrtle Beach Resort for you? Our fingers can do a little help, we can compare several Myrtle Beach Hotels on line and see a lot of deals. Checking out Myrtle Beach Seaside Resorts is one good way to do so because they provide lots of options and different vacation packages from different destinations. You can even book with them on line anytime pretty easy.

Oh, talking about the place makes me missed the beach so much. Sigh!

1. Over spending at online shopping
2. Facebook games like farmville, farmtown, yoville and cafe world!
3. Eating out many times a week
4. Watching some reality show
5. Stay up late at night in the computer
6. Sweet cravings
7. Fried stuff lover
8. shoes
9. purses
10. Chocolates

I just saw something beautiful!

I enjoy my daily surfing escapades because through it, I get to be updated with a whole bunch of new products. When there's a clearance sale at my favorite store or freebies, then I'll know about it right away. And since we recently renovated our house so we still need some stuff here and there. I'm taking things slowly though, first things first. But you know what, sometimes it's so hard to choose which things you need most because of the many special offers available on line. That's what I like it here in the U.S because when they say discount, it's huge discounts!

Anyway, am eying a grandfather clock this time around. I know it wouldn't be soon though because we're out of budget, lol! But I love to have one someday. Ever since before I want to have this unique and classy wall clock because it reminds me of Cogsworth, the fellow from Beauty & the Beast. Anyway there are lots of people collecting grandfather clocks because they see it as an art and a statement. And lately, it's becoming a trend to collect this kind of timepieces across the world. I wonder when can I have mine? It'll be so neat to put it in our living room I bet!

Since the whole week has been so busy, plus the kids were not feeling very well because of colds, I was so stress out and felt I needed a break.

Kurdapya's tips

Wonder how some people acquire those beautiful skin, hair, and youthful glow? You may think going to a derm clinic, spending lots of cash, or too much spa is the answer. But no, some stuff in your home can do the miracle for you. You may find it in your garden or inside your fridge, those friendly natural agents that will make you look good without spending much.

Here are some...

Summer Care : Wash your face with water after every 2 hours to avoid the grease on your skin. You can wash your face with just plain water, and then rub ice on your face

Hair Loss : Boil 250 ml of mustard oil in a thin vessel. Add 60 gms of heena leaves gradually and continue boiling till they are burnt in the oil. Filter and store this mixture in the bottle. Massage hair regularly with this oil to prevent hair loss.

Anti-Wrinkle : A mixture of juice of a quarter cucumber, egg white of 1 egg, a teaspoon lemon juice and a teaspoon of vodka makes an excellent anti-wrinkle lotion. Apply on your face and wash off after 10 minutes. Use at least twice a week.

Pimple-pimple : To get rid of your pimple scars from the face apply tomato pulp every day and wash off after an hour.

For glowing skin : Mix equal quantity of almond, rose water, glycerine and lemon juice. Apply on face and keep overnight. Wash off in the morning, first with warm water and then with cold water, to give a glowing effect to your face

Skin Tonic : Mix together 1 egg yolk, 1 tsp honey and a pinch of turmeric and apply it for half an hour. You can preserve this mixture in fridge for around 20 days

sleep and appetite

As i mentioned in my recent post that I'm having a not so good night sleeps lately because of my baby's weird sleeping patterns. She sleeps early evening but then wakes up when it's time for us to go to bed as well. And the result of my lack of sleep, well, I tend to eat a lot during the day. So sad because I was thinking to finally start a diet program. Gosh, am gaining weight! Right now I really want to try one of those top diet pills or something. You know, to help me control my cravings for food. Oh my!

I'm pretty sure a lot of us wants to start an investment, like a business perhaps in most case. But of course if we invest into something, we want it to last and be successful right? Something that can stand through the economy's ups and downs. Well the facts shows that among the others, gold is the most popular as an investment. Many people buy it, especially gold coins as a safe haven against economic, social, and political crises. When there's war, currency failure, inflation, gold can save the day. Before, buying gold coin or gold bullion used to be difficult. Only the rich and the famous has access and means to purchase it. But it's so different now! There are now available websites that sells certified gold coins, bullion, and other precious metals.

One of which is Gold Coins Gain. This company has been in the national media for many years and they have all the gold coins of the world. From places as far as India, Egypt, Ethiopia, Middle East and many other countries. You may want to check them out and learn more. Feel free to browse the site and read the many testimonies from investors.

Alright, I hope I shared something helpful to you. See ya again next time!

Thursday Challenge: Beauty


The beauty of jelly fish is one of coolest thing I've ever saw, it is so neat how they gracefully moves and they float like clouds in the water. What an amazing creatures! Isn't it? Took this one at Chattanooga, TN Aquarium.

Traveling and more!

How far have you traveled? How many places have you been too? As for me, well I'd like to think I've traveled a lot already. Back when I was still single up until now that I have my own family. I'm glad that we can pack our bags and be on the road every now and then. But I guess I will never have enough when it comes to traveling. I still have my dream destinations to go, like Europe of course.

So what should I do to make my dreams come true? Find cheap airline tickets will be my first step. Seriously speaking though, traveling is really expensive and we really should be prepared if we plan to do it. Thankfully, we can now start building our trip with the help of our fingers. Through on line travel sites, we can search for best deals, compare expenses, and finally book airline tickets and accommodations too. This tool will also allow us to find cheap hotels, vacation packages, and even car rentals. So what are you waiting for all travel enthusiast? Feel free to visit LowFares now and they'll take you to where you wanna go!

Hmmm, I wonder when and where our next trip will be? Early next year I hope, winks!

Pretty Heavy Rain

So anyways, i hate this kind of weather pretty much its boring, gloomy and wet nothing much to do outdoors even though i wanna go somewhere but we couldn't especially for the sake of our kids i don't wanted them to get sick in this kind of season you know. Oh well, i hope this rain will stop but the good thing am a lil bit thankful is my hubby got to have a break working outside and i know they need an off not just him but his colleagues as well! I don't know what the weather tomorrow brings! i hope no rains though.

My second project!

Being a handyman's wife, I learned to do jobs I never thought I can. Now Like now I can do the wall paintings in our house, a little carpentry too, and just recently I remodeled our second bathroom for the kiddos. I changed the color and put wall papers to make it look cute and friendly. Something like under the sea theme because the little man loves fishes and anything colorful. Well that's what kept me occupied last few weeks and right now, I think our bathroom too deserves a make over soon.

I already know what colors I'd like to use and what look I want to achieve. If my back sores are gone, will probably start working on it next week. But for the mean time, I'll be looking for some bathroom vanity I guess. My fingers are doing the search actually and glad I found this on line store that sells a lot of wonderful products for the bathroom. The nice thing about them is that you can mix and match their items to complete your desired style. They have everything from single vanities, teak vanity, traditional bathroom vanities, and their clearance corner is what I like best.

So guys, I'll be busier than a bee I think. But don't worry, I'll keep you posted every time. We'll see each other around, winks!

Be the kind of women that when your feet hit the floor each morning,
The devil says "Oh Crap, She's Up."

Sister, life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right.
Love the ones who don't just because you can.
Believe in everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Kiss slowly. Forgive quickly.
God never said life would be easy.
He just promise it would be worth it.
Today is sister's day.

To the cool women that have touched my life.

weight management

Are you struggling to lose weight? Well I am. A year ago I was so happy because finally I was able to start my diet plan and already shed some pounds. But since I got pregnant, there's no way I can possibly continue to do it. Now I wanna begin again. A new weight loss program that gives real results without taking any drugs. And I heard about austin weight loss program, it's a therapy that allows the body to function and lose weight the natural way. Hmmm, maybe this will work for me. Winks!

Your Hands and Health

When a person sneezes and puts his hand across his mouth or blows his nose, the hands need washing before touching telephones or doorknobs," says The Medical Post of Canada. The Post quoted the U.S. Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, which says that "80% of common infections are spread directly by hands and touching, not through the air." Dr. Audrey Karlinsky of the University of Toronto recommends washing frequently and rubbing soap into your hands "for 10 to 15 seconds, taking care to get in between the fingers and under the nails." After that, she suggests, you should rinse your hands in hot water and use a paper towel to turn off the faucet. How can you get children to take enough time? Have them recite the whole alphabet while they soap up, suggests Dr. Karlinsky
